Ij -evening in points of enthusiasm and
a\ > • • number. It will long be pointed to as
IW the high water mark of Republican en-
* y thusiasni. The rally was participated in
tf by delegations from McCook , Bartley ,
l\ \ -Cambridge , Arapahoe and Oxford , fully
| W a. thousand people coming by rail from
jk Xhese points , besides Danbury and Leb
I l anon helped swell the crowd ,
ft _ * • McCook to the number of 6oo &ouls
.1' went down shortly after dinner in a
V | ' v specially chartered train of ten cars , the
A -compliments and generosity of the Mc-
U Kinley and Hobart and Railway Men's
\ Sound Money clubs. The Nebraska
• < Brigade band , the McKinley martial
band and the Valentine glee club accom-
f ' l panied the delegation and were a promi-
V- nent and delightful feature of the rally.
j Their music was highly complimented
J on all hands.
/ Bartley and Cambridge each had unit -
t i .formed marching clubs of ladies in the .
> procession , besides the latter town had a
i uniformed marching club of inn. These
ir ia addition to those from other towns
\ and surrounding country made a crowd
" V of perhaps fifteen hundred people.
' ? he torchlight procession contained
i ver 400 and with their banners , flags ,
J' ' torches and music , the scene presented
* lias seldom been equaled in Southwestern j
ij Nebraska. The march proceeded in the j
\r \ * -face ofa-cold wind and dust storm , but I
t the-weather , though very disagreeaole' |
, nd inclement , was not able to dampen
- ardor and enthusiasm of those in
line or looking on.
. t The parade over a thousand people
+ 1 billed the Dolan rink building to hear
/ "General" Charles T. Kelley of Com-
/ " nionweal ariny fame. He spoke almost
-exclusively upon the tariff question , ascribing -
• cribing all our ills to the present tariff
law , and prescribing the McKinley tariff
as the remedy. He impressed his hearers
as being the earnest and sturdy man that
she chairman of the meeting , Prof. "Wil
liam Valentine , introduced him as being.
.His colaborer in the cause , F. O. Sauls-
liury , made a few remarks introducing
the "general" . Music by the Brigade
baud , the Cambridge glee club and the
"Valentine glee club was interspersed
throughout the meeting , which was in
• every respect successful and highly pleas
ing to those participating and having
the affair in hand.
THE POPULIST RALLY.
At the same place and time the Populists
lists indulged in a county rally. They
liad about 250 in their torchlight pro
cession , with banners and legends a-plen
ty. The Danbury martial band furnished
-the musical inspiration. Notwithstand
ing the wind and dust their enthusiasm
for Bryan found loud and continuous ex
pression. Four hundred people crowded
' into the Populist hearquarters in the old
I .Masonic building to hear their nominee
\ for congress , J. R. Sutherland , who
"warmed up his audience along familiar
lines. P. E. McKillip entertained the
crowd until the speaker of the evening
§ j | arrived. Though measurably below the
f Republican demonstration in numbers
and displaj' , the showing was very fair ,
under the circumstances and satisfactory
to our Populist friends , whose facilities

THE COUNTY FAIR
It Was a Success Considering All the
A LARGE ATTENDANCE ON FRIDAY
The Races Were Good The Ex
hibits of Stock and Farm ,
Products Were Rather
The Red Willow county fair closed on
last Friday. Considering all the un
toward circumstances the fair was a suc
cess , and would have been a larger suc
cess had the weather been more pleasant.
Thursday and Friday were both cold and
The exhibits of farm products were
somewhat limited , but many worthy pro
ductions of the soil were to be seen , not
withstanding. The same may be said of
the live stock department in which there
were a number of meritorious exhibits ,
notabty that of W. N. Rogers , whose
Herefords have no equal in this section
The races were up to the standard , a
number of exciting events in running
and trotting being pulled off. In addi
tion there were some good foot races.
The windy , cold and dusty weather of
Thursday and Friday doubtless kept
many from attending the fair , which , of
course effected the financial success in a
measure , but it is hoped to be able to
pay premiums nearly in full.
McCook , as usual , furnished a large
part of the attendance , especially on Fri
day , when the special train to the county
rally was run down early in order to help
out the attendance at the fair. The Ne
braska Brigade band did some gratuitous
playing , too , which everybody enjoyed ,
and which added to the interest and
pleasure of the afternoon.
The officers of the society are now at
work figuring up the premiums , expenses
etc. , and will soon be able to announce
the results in all departments. Theman- ,
agement is to be congratulated , first upon
its courage in attempting the fair under ;
the discouraging state of affairs , and second
end upon the measure of success achieved.
W. S. Summers' Speech.
One of the best speeches of the cam
paign was that delivered in the opera
house , Monday evening , by W. S. Sum
mers of Lincoln. He analyzed the po
sition of the opposition with a keenness
and shrewdness that quite captured his
large and appreciative audience. Those
who heard him are united in the opin
ion that his was one of the strongest
speeches of the campaign.
School Opened Monday.
The new frame school house in district
50 , known as Pleasant View school house ,
was recently completed and a term of
school was commenced on Monday
morning of this week with Ole Robin
son as teacher. Mr. and Mrs. James
Williams were in the city on Monda3-
securing stationery supplies for the
Pinched Between the Cars.
Monday night , Charlie McCarl was
quite severely pinched between freight :
cars ' , at Arapahoe. A rib was broken
and he was also painfully squeezed. He
was brought home on one of the even
ing passengers , and under the surgeon's
care is now getting along as comfortably
as the circumstances will warrant.
The Boys at Oxford.
The McKinley martial band went 1
down to Oxford , Saturday morning , to '
participate in a Republican rally. The
boys are in demand , and Sam Rogers is ,
never happier than when showing off the '
kids. And the kids enjoy being exhib
His "Friend" Thumped Him.
Joseph Schaich , who recently left the
city for New Mexico , fell in with some
"friends" during the carnival in Denver ,
and emerged considerably the worse for
wear , according to Denver Republican
of the 9th.
Was Purely Business.
Monday evening's session of McCook
lodge No. 1 , Star of Jupiter , was purely
business , and not very largely attended
on account of the speech by W. S. . Sum
mers in the opera house.
Short But Lively.
E. H. Doan's carriage horse took a
pretty lively spin down Main avenue ,
last evening , but fortunately was stopped
by some men before any damage was
done. Miss Addie was driving.
Notwithstanding the hard times , S.M.
Cochran & Co. are keeping a complete
line of general hardware. See them be
THE TRAVERS MURDER TRIAL.
The Case Goes to the Jury , This Morning- ,
for Their Decision.
The trial of Edward Lorenz charged
with the murder of Michael Travers has
been engaging the attention of district
court all week , and is still progressing
The case is being heard in the opera
house , which i > , kept well filled all the
time by the public , which is exhibiting
a deep interest in the trial. It is ex
pected to close the case by the end of
The state closed its argument last eve
ning , and the defense is addressing the
jury , this morning , when the matter will
rest with the jury.
A receptiou was tendered Mr. and Mrs.
W. B. Mills by the Endeavor Society of
the Congregational church , last evening ,
at the residence of E. H. Doan. Games
and refreshments were indulged in dur
ing the evening , and all present report
a very pleasant time.
Many Minor Accidents.
The past week has been unusual for the
number of accidents on the road. Fortunately -
tunately none of them were fatal and
while the injuries were severe and pain
ful , all are getting along quite well at ;
Fair and Festival.

THE POPULIST RALLY. H
A Large and Enthusiastic Audience H
Greeted J. R. Sutherland. H
The Populist rally in our city , last Saturday - H
urday evening , was highly gratifying to |
the leaders and members of that party , H
and may fairlybe considered a success. H
A torchlight procession preceded the H
speech making. There were nbout 150 . |
in line , made up of delegations from H
Danbury , McCook , and surrounding M
country , quite a number being mounted. M
There were transparencies and banners H
galore , ulso a large and handsome picture H
of W.J. Bryan , in the procession. The |
Nebraska Brigade band furnished music |
for the parade and before the opera |
house. The Danbury delegation was H
headed by the Minniear martial band M
composed of a young yirl and two little |
boys. There was no end of vocalizing |
during the parade , which , howeverfailed M
to fully meet expectations of the many |
lookers on. |
But the meeting in the opera house H
was everything the Populist heart could M
desire. There were about 600 persons in |
the hall , which was crowded to its fullest |
capacity , many failing to gain admission M
to the building even. The remarks of J. M
R. Sutherland elicited loud and contimi- |
ous applause. His speech lacked argu- M
meut and lo ic , but the audience was fl
with him most enthusiastically and the |
speaker was visibly delighted with his |
reception. Truly Mr. Sutherland is a H
"warming pan" . H
The considerable overflow from the H
opera house was addressed by Ed. L. |
Adams of Minden on the street. lie is H
quite a forceful speaker and on thisocca- M
sion , as well as in the opera house in the |
afternoon , he was enthusiastically re- |
All in all the meeting was one in which |
the Populist brethren may properly take |
great satisfaction. H
