InlUative ana Referendum
A petition in 1 cine circulated
This project was contemplated last
spring but failed of being submitted
in time Tho petition is boingquitegener
all signed Tho idea 01 the initiative and
referendum places the initiation of cer
tain matters of legislation with the
people on petition as well as refers
certain thingd to them for endorsement
In u word it gives tho people power to
enact legislation direct instead of
through the city officials exclusively
It is a law which has worked advantage
ously although it is not of course
without its drawbacks

Daylight Saloon Proposed
There is some agitation of the day
light saloon proposition for McCook
That temperance would be greatly aided
by such action is scarcely to be question
ed The Tkibcne knows of nothing
in sight in the temperance problem that
could now bring better results than a
restriction of tho drink hours to the day
light hours

The little two-year-old son of F D
Frazier of South McCook fell into a well

S W Nebraska Educational Associa
tion Will Bring- Hundreds Here
in April
The Tkibune hopes that tho people
of McCook will respond liberally and
promptly to the request of the committee
having in charge the matter of providing
accommodations for the hundreds of
school teachers who will be drawn here
by the meeting of tho S V Nebraska
Educational association April 1st 2nd
and 3rd
Based upon past experience there will
bo a need for accommodations for 400
teachers on this occasion which fact
means that McCook will have to throw
opeu its private homes as well as its
hotels boarding houses etc
It is needful to remember also that
tho time U short in which to complete
all arrangements and that an early re
sponse is most essential in order that
the matter of accommodations mny be
lined up
In order to finance the matter in
hand it is probable that tickets at 50
cents each will be sold which will ad
mit holders to the association sessions
and the entertainments during the ses
sions lectures and music numbers
There will be three rpecial items of
entertainment and it is expected that
they will each and all be worthwhile
All citizens who will tako teachers
during the association or during part
of the time should make the fact known
to the committee Phone II C Clapp
at No 56 or call at his store and make
known your purpose in the matter
