reet Andrews and Crounse Here
Last Friday Afternoon and
Evening With
Hon. W. i. Andrews and Governor
Lorenzo Crounse discussed the issues of
; this campaign in our city , last Friday
afternoou and evening , to large , deeply
interested and enthusiastic audiences-
the Menard opera house being crowded
upon both occasions.
Mr. Andrews opened the afternoon
meeting with an address on the pension
and money questions. He conclusively
proved that the pension policy of the
republican party was based on gratitude ,
justice and patriotism. That the republican -
lican party has always been the true ,
tried and consistent friend of the old
veteran. That about all' the desirable
legislation and fair execution and administration -
ministration thereof have been secured
- ' . . , , n . .through the republican party and policy.
. : As to the money question he favored
a true bimetalism , a sound and honest
currency , the frees ; use of silver consistent -
sistent with its maintenance at a parity
; / with our gold and paper money. And
incidentally roasting the walking delegate -
gate in a gentlemanly way for his contraction -
traction of facts and expausion of errors
in his money discussions.
Governor Crounse followed up this
able and convincing speech with some
remarks touching the republican administration -
istration of state affairs , the extravagance -
gance of populistic legislatures , the
damage the state has already received
aud the menace and danger to the
' state's credit threatened by populistic
domination ; and closed with a brief
characterization of Senator Allen and
Congressman McKeighan that carried
his audience by storm.
The evening meeting was even larger ,
if anything , than the afternoon , although
the attendance of farmers was larger
upon the afternoon. The ladies were
'cell represented in the evening meeting
! at is gratifying to note.
f The opening remarks of the evening
were made by Governor Crounse , who
covered pretty much the same ground as
on the afternoon , explaining , among
other interesting things , the reason why
a special legislative session was not
.called by him to devise means to assist
those who need aid in this section of
state , viz : that populist extravagance
had long since exceeded the constitutional -
tional debt limit of the state , etc.
Mr. Andrews closed the meeting with
a most eloquent speech covering as
fully as might be in the limited time
the labor and tariff questions. That
labor should have a just portion of the
wealth it produces. That this result
can best be secured through the protective -
tive policy of the republican party as
promulgated by McKinley , and reciprocity -
ciprocity as set forth by the lamented
Altogether the speeches were well 're-
ceived , 'and an intererestand enthusiasm
and admiration aroused in many breasts
that will go with them throughout the

West McCook was the scene of matrimonial -
menial gaiety , Monday evening , Mr.
Amen and Mrs. Bindewalt being the

was a widower with an endowment of six

well fixed in that line. So they set out
with an even dozen children between
them. They expect soon to enter upon
their wedding trip to Oklahoma , whither
they will journey overland with a pair
of oxen for motive power. The newly
wedded and happy couple were treated
to a charivari , Tuesday evening , which
is described by the people of that section -
tion of the city as being a corker with
several well defined sets of horns , lasting
through a vociferous period of about
four hours , and only concluded when
the horny-handed son of the Czar had
invested in a copious supply of the amber -
ber colored liquid for the crowd.

The High School Alumni.
Fifteen members of the McCook high
school alumni met at the home of Miss
Johannah Engel , last Saturday night ,
for the purpose of organizing an alumni
association. After some discussion a
temporary organization was effected with
the following officers : Miss Edna IIe-
serve , president ; Miss Augusta Hunt ,
vice president ; Miss May Stuby , secretary -
tary and treasurer. A committee on
constitution was selected as follows : Mr.
J. -Fowler , Miss Della Johnston and
Miss Hattie Varger. The next meeting
will be held subject to the call of the
committee , and will be when the committee -
mittee are ready to report a constitution
for the approval of the association.
Thirty-three pupils have graduated
from the McCook high school. Of this
number twenty-seven still reside in the
city and vicinity. It is expected that
the fifteen present on the evening of the
temporary organization will be joined by
most of not qnite all of the graduates
still living here.
A Successful Social.
The Baptist friends conducted a most
gratifyingly successful social in the A.
0. U.W. temple hall , last Saturday even-
ing. A musical and literary programme
of merit and excellence was given in the
fore part of the evening , which was most
satisfactorily rounded off with an oyster
spread. The programme rendered consisted -
sisted of a chorus by the choir-with a
soprano solo by Miss Ellington Wilson ,
a recitation by Miss Bertha Boyle , a
song by five young girls , an instrumental
trio by the Misses Bomgardner and Mr.
Ely , a'chorus and duet with Miss Wilson
and Mrs. Robinson , a solo by Mrs. Utter ,
a recitation by Mrs. Chute , and concluding -
ing with two choruses by the full choir.
The programme throughout was well
rendered , the several numbers being
warmly applauded and appreciated. The
affair in its totality reflected credit upon
all concerned , and deserved the measure
of patronage bestowed-and it was very

Still Uncertain.
Tuesday evening , Attorney W. S.
Morlan telegraphed Supt. A. . Campbell
of our city that the supreme court had
affirmed the decision of the district
court in the county-seat case , which was
in McCook's favor. On Wednesday ,
however , another telegram was received ,
from the clerk of the supreme court ,
to the effect that the supreme court had
modified its decision of the previous
day and that the case had been dismissed -
ed on the grounds that the contestant
Thomas was not a competent person to
bring such a suit.
What the next move will be time
alone will tell.
But this "modification" cost McCook
merchants a quantity of good kindling
wood , the band boys a little wind , a few
private individuals a small quantity of
fire works , Tuesday evening , and the
small boys some enthusiasm.

Has Judge Welty Arrested Under
a Charge of Receiving
a Bribe.
Quite a sensation has been created
throughout the 14th district , this week ,
by the arrest of Judge D. T Welty on
the charge of receiving a bribe. The
complaint was sworn out Saturday by
A , D. Gibbs , late court reporter , and the
warrant was issued by Judge Anderson
of Furnas county. The arrest was made
on Monday by the sheriff of Furnas
county at Beaver City. The preliminary
hearing was set for Oct. 25th , and the
bond fixed at $ Iooooo.
The complainant Gibbs was recently
discharged from the position of court
reporter by Judge Welty , and John
Stevens , Jr. , son of John Stevens , Sr. ,
now populist representative from Furnas
county and up for reelection , was appointed -
pointed to succeed Gibbs. Both Gibbs
and Stevens were former employes of
W. S. Morlan of our city. This action
caused the arrest.
Among other allegations in the complaint -
plaint is one that Morlan paid Welty
$225 oo for Gibbsappointment as official
Another incident enlarged upon is the
fact that at the convention held in 18gt
when Welty was nominated for judge , a
pledge was secured from \Velty that he I
would not accept a pass from any railroad -
road under airy circumstances ; and
letters that could not have beet : secured
honestly by Gibbs are by ] tiny produced
in evidence on this point-that Welty +
has used passes and mileage , the latter
being used in this district as a blind.
This seems to be about a11 , if not all ,
there is iu this matter , and the fact is
doubtless not denied. But whatever
may be the merits of Gibbs' case , no
man will attempt to condone an offense
so offensive to and at variance with even
a low ideal of manhood and honor , as
violating private confidence and trust.
And again the public will doubtless indulge -
dulge the question which will naturally
arise in their minds , as to haw Gibbs
came into possession of original letters
front iris employer's office , or of even
copies of tare same.
Judge Welty is doubtless open to
political criticism for pledge-breaking in
using transportation and THE TRIBUNE
does not condone the offense ; but we
feel perfectly certain that the offense is
no graver than that , and hence have no
disposition to manufacture sentiment
against him or his party on that line.
As to the charge of receiving a bribe
from W. S. Morlan , we have reasons to
believe that the allegation is false , and
the preliminary examination on the
25th will bear us out on the statement.
As to ex-stenographer Gibbs , TuE
TRIBUNE will be excused for saying
that in his passionate peek and vigorous -
ous vindictiveness he has bitten offntore
than he can gracefully masticate , and if
he experiences some difficulty in swallowing -
lowing before the end of the chapter it
will not cause much wonderment.

pectsto have her studio , room 3 in the
