A Well Spent Evening.
On last Thursday evening the
Knights & Ladies of Security ,
council No. 010 , met in Wahl's
'hall in regular session , eleven
candidates were initiated and
several other applications re-
ceived. Dr. Fast and wife were
present on this occasion , this
being their first opportunity of
attending since returning from
their extended eastern trip , the
docter gave the council a most
excellent talk in his usual pleas
ing manner. Dr. Wilson was
also present and gave a number
of interesting remarks for the
good of the order.
Another pleasing teature was
the presence of District Deputy
Harrison , who gave to the coun
cil words of encouragement and
some helpful hints for future
work. After the order of busi
ness was completed a short
musical program was rendered
by the young people , and last
but not least , was a bountiful
supper served in the banquet
hall to the satisfaction of all
The Miles-Case.
The trial of the Miles case
was closed Wednesday noon and
Judge Raper took it under ad
visement. After Mr. llingolsky
had testified in denial of the
Harbaugh story the court struck
all of the evidence relating to
this scandalous matter from the
record and declined to consider
it at all. This ruling was in
line with ruling of the Supreme
court , which also refused to
consider it. The arguments
opened Monday morning and
consumed all ol the time until
Wednesday noon. John L.
Webster , who was to close the
case at the night session Tues
day was taken suddenly ill just
as he opened his argument and
court adjourned until Wednes
day morning , at which time Mr.
Webster resumed. While prac
tically all of the attorneys par
ticipated in the discussion , the
task of covering the entire case
was given to Mahony ior the
defendants and Webster for
the plaintiffs. These two gen
tlemen were listened to atten
tively by the largest crowd that
has attended the trial. Mr.
Mahoney made a masterly pre
sentation of his clients case ,
while the argument of Mr. Web
ster in closing is generally ad
mitted to be the greatest speech
ever delivered in the court
house. Judge Raper has come
in for a world of praise for the
fair and able manner in which
he has presided during the most
difficult and bitter trial. The
people of the first district are
to be congratulated upon having -
ing Judge Raper , and no matter
how he decides the case there is
no one interested that will not
be willing to concede that-the
decision will be conscientiously
James Hossack who has been
spending the. past week with
his parents , John Hossack and
wife , left Wednesday for Hart-
ington , Nebraska where he is
foreman of the Western Bridge
& Construction company.
Elks Win.
The library contest came toj
an end this week , though for
some lime but little interest
was taken in it. When the Odd
Fellows dropped out the strug-
g e narrowed down to the Elks
lodge and the Convent. The
total vote cast was 182,228 three
leading ' candidates receiving
the following number :
Ellis 55,510
Convent 65/M2
Library 10,058
This entitles the Elks to .the
library and the boys are entitled
to congratulations for the suc
cessful termination of their ef
forts to put this splendid set of
books in the lodge room.
Rev. Griffin Injured.
Word was received here the
first of the week that Rev. Grif
fin , formerly of this city , was
severely injured very recently ,
at his home at Colorado Springs.
It seems that he was" in some
manner struck by a street car
and rendered unconscious for
several hours. Et is thought
that he will recover without
permanent injuries.
Ilis many friends at this place
will be grieved to learn of the
accident as at his age an injury
such as the above so often turns
out filially. At the same time
we are glad that all indications
point toward his speedy recov
ery irom the shock.
W. C. T. U. Wiil Meet
The W. C. T. U. will .hold H
special meeting Friday May 4th.
at the Brethern Church. There
\\ill also be a count } ' convention
of several of the surrounding
towns Monday May 7th.
We ask that all the members'
who are either ( or botlO able to
meet their co-laborers at the
depot or entertain them while
here will come to the front. If
we all feel the responsibility as
we should , say nothing of comitt-
ing it a pleasure to meet in com
pany with such friends there
should be no trouble in finding
room and entertainment for all.
Hoping there will be no shirk
ers we look for a large and en
thusiastic attendance.
