Banker Cornell , of Valentine ,
passed through Norfolk recently
cnroute home from a business trip
to Omaha. In speaking of the
situation at Ft. Niobrara , where it
was feared the recent , visit of Gen.
Chaffre might mean abandonment ,
he said : ' 'It has been determined
that Fort Niobrara shall remain
where it is , and it has also been
decided that the post shall be made
a maneuvering ground for all fed
eral troops. It is very likely that
in the future Fort Niobrara which
js the largest tract of government
land that a military post is situated i
on , shall be the field for operations ]
each , summer instead of Ft Riley.

sons to Appease His Wrath ,
About 12 o'clock last Saturday
night , a villian , hiding near the
brick house at Stratton & Kline's
place near the Fort , shot several
rimes at some persons standing by
a team near the dance hall , which
is about 200 or 300 feet east of the
brick house. A number of shots
were fired in rapid succession with
a Krag-Jorgensen riile. Raymond
J. B , Smith was shot through the
body and arm and will probably
die Lulu Johnson ( colored ) , also
called "Red Top , "was shot through
the body. Arthur Trumbull , the
driver of the team , was shot in the
arm and the bone shattered. John
II. Stratton was standing near the
stove in the dance hall when a bul
let struck the stove , and parts of
the stove .and probably thn bullet
struck him in the thigh , inflicting
only a flesh wound. One of the
horses was shot dead and the other
was shot in the left hip.
It is not known who did the
shooting but it is surmised that a
colored soldier who had expressed
a grievance earlier in the evening
is the guilty party , and Sheriff
Layport , City Marshal Hilsingcr
and a Deputy U. S. Marshal
went down to the Fort Monday
and arrested him , brought him up
and lodged him in jail.
On Sunday next , an early mass
will be said here at 7 o'clock in
the morning Solemn high mass
at 10:30 : a. m. For those who
