Assaulted the Night Policeman
Arthur Forbes appeared before Squire
LeEIew Tuesday on a change of venue
from Squire Berrys court charged with
assault and battery with Night Police
man Ed Fitzgerald as complainant
The defendant demanded a jury trial
and six men wore duly selected and
sworn for that purpose who promptly
brought in a verdict of guilty Squire
Lellow imposed a fine of 83000 and
costs Forbes appealed his case and
provided a bond of 5200 -conditioned
upon his appearance in district court
It appears that Forbes and several
other young men were drinking and on
the streets at a late hour The night
policeman took Forbes by the arm and
sought to have Forbes go home It
was then that Forbes is claimed to have
struck Fitzgerald in the face with some
iron weapon after which he took to his
heels and escaped from the dazed and
blinded policeman It is claimed that
threats had been made against the po
liceman by the party but it was difficult
to get testimony to this effect witnesses
being afraid to testifiy

The Tribune believes that the good
work of the organization will be effect
ively continued and that results will be
Union Temperance Meeting
The churches of the city united last
Sunday evening in a temperance meet
ing in the Cbngregatioual church The
interest in the subject of temperance
was strongly indicated by tho large at
tendance the church being crowded
The address of the evening was deliver
ed by Rev Edker Burton of the Baptist
church who made plain the need of
temperance work in McCook He urged
that the best way to control the liquor
traffic was to annihilate the traffic en
tirely a sentiment in which his hearers
were well agreed The meeting showed
that McCook has a growing and strong
sentiment against the liquer business
and that the future may develop a
campaign along that line such as the
city has never before experienced
Might Have Been Serious
A cubeb cigarette stub was the inno
cent cause of an incipient fire in the

ately County Assessor T A Endsley
and Court Reporter L W Stayner dis

New Method of Billing
The Burlington road in tho futuro will
use revised methods of marking tho
company freight GW Holdrege gen
eral managor of the road has sent out
the following order regarding tho mark
ing of company materials
In order to save time and labor on the
parts of agents trainmen and others on
gaged in the handling of company ma
terials and onablo us to got them over
the road more promptly betweon com
pany storehouses it has been decided to
designate each company storehouse by a
number so that in the future it will be
necessary to stencil this number on tho
material This will also do away with
tho necessity of itemizing tho different
articles on way bills
Tho stencil to be used will bo larger
and plainor than a written tag and will
enable employes to identify it with less
handling of packages and the marks
will also be less subject to obliteration
than is the case where tags aro used
It will also enable agents to immediately
ship to the proper designation materials
which may be over at their stations
as the stencils will give them the proper
destinations It will also save tho mark
ing of Over and Short Reports in many
cases and will enable the company to
get material into service instead of hav
ing it lie around waiting for consignees
to be found The storehouse number
will invariably be stenciled or painted
on the material in white paint
Under the above plan billing will not
be itemized but will read as follows
nieces of company material
marked in white paint
In the space before the word pieces
the total number of pieces or packages
will be shown In the space before tho
word in the storehouse number sten
ciled on the articlo will be shown
The billing must show that tho store
house number on the material is in white
paint so that it may be designated from
any other number that may appear on
the material
Each and every item less than full
carload lots consigned to one store will
positively be stenciled

No Cause For Alarm
While there aro several cases of diph
theria in McCook and the same can bo
truthfuly said of other towns in this
part of the state there is absolutely no
occasion for alarm and tho fact should
keep no one away from enjoying tho
splendid races arranged for this after
noon and Saturday afternoon by the
Driving Park association
We make this statement simply bo
cause some silly and idle rumors have
been spread abroad concerning the pro
valence of diphtheria in this city and
some have been frightened thereby
There have been some cases and still
are some but there is not now and has
not been at any time cause for alarm
Come to the races
Postponed to July 9th to 19th
The very heavy rains which overllow
ed Epworth Lake Park and much of

will be no change in tho place of the
