The Iulilio Library
Something over a year ago what
seemed to many of our progressive citi
zens a golden opp rtunity for the es
tablishment of a free public library pre
sented itself in the offering for sale on
the part of the owners of tho old Cath
olic churoh building MeotiugB of the
citizens wero nem atBcnssiouB had a
constitution adopted und a resolution to
purohaso the church building for the
sum of f500 passed
Asa result of theso actions and by
the tacit consent of the library com
mittee Mr C G Somers purchased for
tho Library association the above men
tioned building
To reimburse Mr Somers for tho
purchase of this building the proposi
tion of Col J S Simpson to seouro lfiO
subscript ioub at two dollars each such
subscribers to become active charter
members was approved by the associa
In conformity with this action of the
association Col Simpson secured lfiO
subscribers and collected about 200
when the storm of last June to a con
siderable extent wrecked tho building
Since that occurrence considerable
apathy among its supporters has pre-
t vailed Some feel that extra effort
should bo made to eootiro a permanent
pile repair tho church building and
move it to snob sight and open the
Others believe that it is better to sell
the old church building to the highest
bidder for eatli and with the proceeds
and if necessary drawing on the library
fund of 200 now deposited iu the Cit
izens National bank for any deficit re
imburse Mr Homers and begin over
The latter view seems to have the
greater number of adherents
Therefore it is resolved that unless
public opinion expresses itself to the
contrary the old church building shall
bo duly advertised sold to the highest
bidder and the proceeds applied to the
roitnbur enient of Mr O G Somers
Expression through the i rem is earn
estly solicited

The Duhland Tuutrr Oo
Entertained a Norfolk Audience
Last Night
Alllllrillf IiiiiiihiIiIi of Villi AiirrrliitlHl
IIuIiiit Niiiiilmr Wnri Well ltiditl
Milliner hiimr lliitidli llitt Attuiclloii
with Omit Crtitll
Perhapi the entertainment was some
what too deep for a Norfolk audience
aud the majority of the people compos
ing it would have been more highly en
tertained Mil li something of a lighter
nature but certain it is that Inues and
his baud met a reception here last night
that ohwcly rcMinbled coolness the one
spontaneous and enthusiastic exception
being the demonstration accorded
Prince Tharming the great musi
cians new two step Other numbers
were applauded and oncon d but in a
manner which Mcmcd to indicate a do
she on the part of the audience to get
their moneys worth rather than from
any special pleasnro received
Anj one picseut however will testify
to the assertion that haimony aud tone
were perfect and that they wero listen
ing to an organization composed of solo
ists under the direction of a great leader
While tumble to under stand perfectly
they could appreciate tho music to a
greater or less extent but many would
have preferred a tune occasionally in
stead of classical lights
Regarding the grand opera singers
there was probably not one who could
understand what their attempts were
let alone t lie foreign tongue in which
they were iciide reel The audience was
more impressed by Mine Neilelis sweet
voice and handsome appearance than by
the t we gentlemen but pieibnbly under
stood her no better than they did the
men The scenes from Faust may
have been seines feir a number in the
audience but to mam they proved
rather more tin some than appreciable
The Villace Blacksmith the num
ber which hilel out the strongest induce
rueiite to the non musical members eif
tho audience proved disappointing
owing to tho failure of tho
eilect The blacksmiths hammered
musically toei but no sparks sprang
from their anvils owing te some fault
with the electric connections
While tho volume eif sound was at
times tew great for the building it was
apparent to all that Mr Innes has ac
cMinplislicel wonders in organizing a
band in which much eif the blare has
been ulmiuntcd and tho effect preidueeel
more resembled that of i largo orchestra
than the popular conception of a brass
band It whs also apparent to the most
uncultured mind that tho band was
under e xcellent control and played as
thougli they were ono Perhaps with
more frequent entertainments of this
character the average audieiico would
be educated up to a plane whero they
could understand arid appreciate but
that timo has not yet arrived as far as
Norfolk audiences are concerned It
was olejorly beyond their grasp
With Prince Charming there wens
two othor numbers that were quite
fully nppreicioted The ono was tho en
chore numlier following the overture in
which popular and national airs were
harniouionsly blended The other was
the number introducing the zithe r seilo
There wero no doubts but that the
program was cleverly and perfectly ex
Manager Spear is deserving of un
limited praise in his efforts te get
Innes and his success in getting
an attendance to fill tho Aud
itorium That they wore unable to un
derstand was no fault of his ho did
well his part The special rom Coluni
bub and the regnlar train from Creigh
tou brnngr t iu a crowd that helped the
attendance out very materially From
the Columbus lino nearly 100 possengeis
wero secured 10 from C lutnbus 11
from Platte Center 17 from Humphrey
and 18 from Madison They were re
turned homo after the performuuee by
speoial trains
InneB and his bund arrived from
York on a special train reaching the
Creightou depot shortly after H oclock
Baggage wagons were waiting nnd the
instruments and other paraphernalia
were taken to tho Auditorium and the
baud was in readiness for tho rising of
tho curtain fifteen minutes uftor their
arrival Thoy left at 0 this morning iu
a special ovor tho Union Pacific for
Kearney whero they will entertain this
Tho next attraction billed for the
Auditorium is a farce comedy Where
