Not having the legal means of raising
the money to pay the unreasonable sala-
| ries of the city officers it has been neces
sary to resort to schemes to compass
the desired end. And a more disgrace
ful travesty on the law were hard to
imagine than the course pursued at the
beginning of this month. We under-
. stand that the police simply went around
| to the gamblers and prostitutes and taxed
them so muchamounting to $140 , which
money instead of being placed with F.L.
McCracken , the City Treasurer , to. the
credit of the school fund , as the law ie-
quires , was applied on the salaries of the
city officers , entirely contrary to law.
As a matter of law and justice the police
have no more authority to lay an embar
go on these outcasts , in this manner ,
than they have upon the most immacu
late citizen amongst us. These people
should be arrested , brought before the
Police Judge , and fined , according to
law , and the officer that pursues any
other course , does so at his peril. The
procedure is illegal , outrageous and nas
ty , and the man who dabbles in it ,
throws himself open to severe criticism.
Contrast the condition of affairs in
Western Illinois , as described by the <
Monmouth Gazette , with our owncst
Western Nebraska , the "Great Ameri
can Desert , " where we have plenty of
moisture and superabundant crops :
' 'It would be possible but not profitable to
talk long about the weather. Suffice to say
that the mercury keeps up in the nineties , it
doesn't rain and the drouth has probably
placed the corn crop beyond redemption ,
even by copious showers. Stock is being
shipped for want of feed and water , and all
the unpleasantness of the largest dry spell
for years is being endured. ' '
Last Monday afternoon , while doing
some shopping at Wilcox & Fowler's
store on West Dennison St. , Miss Mary
Melia , was a victim of some miserable
sneak thief , who relieved her of her
purse containing about $25 in cash.
Miss Melia had jrone over to the McEn
tee House to see some samples and had
placed her shopping bag , containing the
purse and moneyon a shelf in the above-
named store. Upon her return from the
hotel , the purse and contents were gone. >
No clue to the thief. The loss falls the
heavier upon Miss Mary at this juncture ,
when she has the greatest need of it.
It is a matter of humiliation and re
gret that the base ball players of this
city do not possess the good taste , the
regard for the day , and the respect for
the feelings of others , to refrain from )
playing on Sunday. The yelling and
profanity of those engaged in this sport
in past Sundays , has plainly been heard ai
by the residents in the eastern part of
the city. It is to be hoped that this
reference to the matter will suggest to
the base ballists of the city the proprie
ty of observing the day in a more civil
ized and becoming manner.
The county central committee conven
ed at Indianoia , last Saturday , in pur
suance of a call of Chairman Berger.
The time for holding the county con
vention was settled upon for Saturday ,
August 21st , and Thursday , August 19th M M
was recommended as the time for hold
ing the various precinct caucuses. The ce
basis of representation is the same as of
the past two years , the vote for Regent
Burnham being the criterion for this to
year. Elsewhere we give the call , which
contains the number of delegates from v (
each precinct.
Among the officers to be elected at
the coming fall election , none are of
more vital importance than that of Bi
County Commissioner. To this office , Jt
the second .district , which comprehends thw
the city of McCook , is entitled. It is w
time that the people were casting around cli
for some active , business man to repre trW <
sent the second district on the board of W
county commissioners. The time for se
holding the county convention draws on se
apace. th
Last week , Dr.L. J.Spickelmierwho de of
lives just northeast of the city , threshed he 0
340 busels of oats from a planting of 7 of
bushels. The oats is of the white va :
riety , and the threshers declare it to be
the heaviest yield they ever handled
in their years of experience. A neigh ev
bor of the doctors also threshed Go in 1
bushels of wheat from a 3-acre patch.
A very fair yield , by the way.
The wet goods organ is quite profuse su
with its advice to other towns "to fire out sumi
the festive demi monde , that they are mi
productive of no good , " etc. , but for ap
"fear of giving the town a bad name , " tic
you know , never raises its voice against sai
that element in our city. It may be a c
little difficult for that organ to "sting as i
the hand that feeds it , " however.
