As the contract with the McCook Loan
and Trust Co. for the rent of the city hall
expired on the 1st day of July , a motion
was passed instructing the city attorney
to ascertain what the city hall can be
rented six months for. There were nu

looking to building a city hall by the

above was the only action taken.
On motion court house bonds , second

of bonds Nos i and 2 to be delivered to
the city treasurer for the purposes for
which said bonds were voted and issued.
A motion was carried authorizing the
making of a contract with the Nebraska
Brigade band for two monthly concerts

Saturday nights of the month. ( How
ever , in order to make it possible to
$ rive two concerts under this contract
during the month of July , the first con
cert will be given on the third Saturday
evening , July I5th. )
A Confidence Game.
A casual perusal of the article in last
week's Bartley Inter-Ocean describing
the 4th of July celebration in McCook
discloses the fact that the successor of
the late and sincerely lamented Editor
Smith has been made the victim of a
confidence game by Colonel Jeffries ,
whose efforts to belittle and misrepre
sent the celebration in McCook only
lacks success perforce of the impotence
and insignificance of the writer. The
article discloses the mendacity and ig
norance of the colonel , and in no way
necessarily reflects upon what was one
of the most successful celebrations held
in this section of the state.
Swift as a Post.
The sporting editor of the Comfort is
us swift as a post when it comes to
"doing" the base ball critique. For
real , pure , genuine , unseriousness and
unsophisticatedness , the colonel , in his
report of the base ball game on the 4th ,
took every vestige of the bakery , liut ,
forsooth , the colonel must not be taken
seriously , without doing violence to
one's sense of the humorous for the
colonel is really funny , if anything.

and the many kind acts shown me. "
THE TRIBUNE utters the sentiment of
all his Red Willow county friends in
wishing John and his family every suc
cess , contentment and prosperity.
A comparison of the car-load ship
ments from Red Willow county in 1898
show a marked increase over the 1897
shipments , as the following figures in
From McCook in 1898 Live-stock ,
356 ; grain , 352 ; total , 708. In 1897
Live-stock , 176 ; grain , 247 ; total , 423.
From Lebanon in 1898 Live-stock ,
164 ; grain , 136 ; total , 300. In 1897
Live-stock , 60 ; grain , 61 ; total , in.
From Danbury in 1898 Live-stock ,
193 ; grain , 216 ; total , 409. In 1897
Live-stock , 102 ; grain , 92 ; total , 194.
From Bartley in iSgS Live-stock , 208 ;
grain , 172 ; total , 380. In 1897 Live
stock , 90 ; grain , 99 ; total , 189.
From Indianola in 1897 Live-stock ,
145 ; grain , 248 ; total , 393 ; In 1897
Live-stock , 117 , grain , 144 ; total , 261.
The total of live-stock for 1898 is ,

2,190. In 1897 the figures are : Live
stock , 633 ; grain , 545 ; grand total , 1,178.
It is interesting in this connection to
note that the comparatively insignificant
station of Wilsonville is the heaviest
stock shipping point on the Burlington
in this state , while Holdrege is the
largest grain shipping station on the line
in Nebraska. Wilsonville shipped 442
cars of stock in 1898.
McAdams Got the Contract.
At the last meeting of the board of
county commissioners bids were opened
for the completion of the rear portion of
the first story above the basement of
the new court house. The Barnett Lum
ber Co. and James McAdams were the
only bidders , and the contract was
awarded McAdams , who agrees to per
form the work required for about $1,300.
Work is now progressing on the vaults
for the county clerk and treasurer and
on the brick partition on that floor.
Appropriations have been made , which ,
together with the proceeds of the Mc
Cook city bonds sold , will complete the
entire first story and thus provide fine
quarters for each of the county officers.
Commissioners Robinson and Belles are
following the proper course in this mat
