Pat. Murray got into his buggy
Monday, and was just about to drive
off, when his attention was called to
the fact that it would be just aB well
if the halter was loosened from the
hitchiug po&t". It wasn't the first of
April either. Pat. is usually found
with all eyes and ears open, but rail
road excitement may be chargeable
with his iuattention to ordinary
business on this occasion.
In the chronicling of local events
we always act upon the theory "bet
ter late than not at all," because
otherwise a record could not be
kept, for the reporter will sometimes
fail to note, and fail to remember
what he happens to hear. We know
that when he arriveB at the age of
discretion, J. H. Galley's fourth son,
born on the night of the 10th ult.,
will excuse ub for this late mention.
The citizens' meeting of April
1st passed resolutions expressing
hearty approval of "the able and
economical administration of our
present city government" in the
collection and disbursement of the
revenues, and especially for the
great reduction in the expenses of
the city government ;also approving
their action in the passage of the li

During the flood of Saturday
week a coil of rope was provided
and used at the foot of I st., in sav
ing houses from being carried away
by the flood. After the excitement
was over it was found that a con
siderable portion of the rope was
missing. We are informed that
there are certain parties, wIiobc
names were not divulged to ns, who
know where the missing rope is,bnt
refuse to tell". Such conduct is cer
tainly very reprehensible, and may
result eeriously to those who per
sist in it.
D. C. Lovelaud returned from
Omaha Saturday. The expected
rise of the Missouri had not yet
amounted to much when he left
only a few inches. It seems that the
thirty feet depth of river, reported
on Thursday last at Yankton, was
caused chiefly by gorges, and that
the cold weather since, together
with the flattening out in the wider
valley of the lower country, has had
the effect of dispelling any fears of
destruction that were entertained at
From Sheriff Spielman we get
some particulars of the alleged bur
glary at Humphrey, Saturday night.
In Lonis Schroeder' absence, he had
left a Mr. Gabriel in charge of his
saloon. Some time in the night,
what hour we did not learn, Ga

ed door. It is charged that he took
an account book, -$3 in money,
besides what whisky waB necessary
to fill him up. We are not informed
as to his preliminary trial.
R. F. Steele of the Central City
Item, will deliver his unique lec

and Ladder Company. The lecture
is said to be G0 per. cent wit, 30

George R. Nunuelly, otherwise
known here as "Antelope Dick,"
is in trouble in Columbus, Kansas.
It seems that, by some chance, he
first obtained a list of subscribers for
a new paper, which he is now having
printed at the Courier office. He
claims that two rivals, by the names
of Edmnndson & Frye, have taken
uufair advantage of him and that
one of the m has forged a letter to S.
P. Rounds of Chicago, which was
the cause of his material being ship
ped to Columbus, Neb., instead of
that place, aud that thereby Frye
hoped to get his paper started first.
On the 27th ult. Nunnelly gave Frye
a severe tongue lashing and intimat
ed that he had two revolvers, one of
which Frye might have to work
with. Nunnelly threatens to use
Frye for a street mop sbould he con
tinue iu his work of establishing a
Sam. Rickly and Joe. Miller
were over from the ranche (for the
first time since the flood), ou Wed
nesday last. Their hut and ranche
are situated near the confluence of
the Loup and Platte, and while the
Loup was on the rampage with
enormous cakes of ice crowding
their way down stream, the outlook
for these young men, surrounded by
water, was not very cheering. Their
stock were kept in the corral, and
on "the move," with the loss of only
three during the whole ice period of
the two rivers. The water was so
deep for most of the time lately that
they hoisted their bed to the ceiling
and for four days and nights they
lived ou top of their hut and in a
tree. Sam. says that after the waters,ut the!r 8tock of general merchan
suosiueu, ana tne stock- nad dry boh
under them, they would skip aud
jump about iu wild fun, evidently
relishing the change in affairs, aud
Sam. acknowledges that he was a
little tickled himself.
Yesterday afteruoon about two
o'clock, one -of R. Stewart's dray
teams became frightened at an en
gine near the depot, aud ran east on
11th street. When opposite Kra
mer's they passed a buggy occupied
by Mrs. Wm. Hunneman and her
daughter Mamie. The horse driven
by them waB naturally nervous by
having the buggy tipped against
him, but used excellent horse-sense
under the circumstances. Mamie waB
thrown out of the buggy and imme
diately rushed to the horse's head,
while Mrs. Hunneman was thrown
under the buggy, close to the horse's
heels, and some say that the wound
on her head was caused by the horse
tramping upon her. Mamie was not
hurt, and Mrs. H. not seriously.
The horse they were driving was
one of those noble specimens of that
noble beast, the greatest helper of
man ; had he been fractious or fool
ish or wicked, the probability is that
the lady would have been killed.
&?aUt of K. X. Ballard.
The Nance County Journal of
MaPch 31st, says :
"Yesterday morning our energetic
and respected citizen, Mr. R. T. Bill
iard, in company with H. Wirick,
proceeded to the sand bank near the
Loupe to get a load of sand. Mr.
Bullard dug under the bank aud
threw the sand to Mr. W., who in
his turn loaded it into the wagon.
They had proceeded in this manner
for some time, when, without a
moment's warning, the overhanging
bank, weighing many tons, fell upon
Mr. Bullard as he stood in a stoop
ing posture, crushing him to the
ground. He called on Mr. Wirick
to clear the sand from his face,
which request was complied with as
rapidly as the frozen earth wonld
permit. After letting air to bis face,
Wirick dispatched a boy, who hap
pened to be near at hand, with all
speed on a horse to town -for help.
Mr. Spackman, who was out hunt
ing, at this moment came upon the
scene, and the two men set vigor
ously at work, but, with the united
efforts of two loads from town, it
was some twenty minutes before the
already lifeless body of the unfortu
nate man could be released.
The sad news was broken as easily
as possible to the bereaved wife and
children, and then be who but an
hour before had left his home in
vigorous health was brought back
as lifeless as the earth which ended
'Ah, helpless man 1 a blind fatality
Bports with thy destiny.""
In pursuance of the spirit of the
railroad meeting reported in a Joun
nae extra of last week, the commit-'
tee went to Omaha ou Thursday last
and had a conference with Mr. T. L.
Kimball, of the TJ. P., the result of
which was reported at length at a
called meetiug at the City Hall Fri
day evening. Very briefly stated,
the committee has been informed
that the rule adopted by the Com
pany for the construction of short
lines and spurs was that those de
siring them should furnish the right
of way, gradiug, bridging and lie
iug, when the Company would agree
to iron and operate the mad. The
committee were informed that what
ever was done must be submitted to
and decided upon by Mr. Dillon,
and Mr. Kimball did not wish to
refer a proposition to him, unless he
was pretty sure it would be accept
ed. This, he knew, would, and he
reckoned the expense roughly at
twenty to twenty-five thousand. A
number of other matters were re
ported on, as to the manner in which
the committee had been received,
the importance of acting immediate
ly upon the proposition, etc.
After considerable talk upon the
general subject and upon the situa
tion of affairs as laid before the
meeting bv the committee, J. E.
North moved that the Company be
offered a guarantee of the right of
way, which was carried.
A committee of five, consisting of
J. E. North, L. Gerrard, J. P. Beck
er, John Wiirgins and M. K. Turner,
was appointed to seen re trom citi
zens a guarantee ; confer with U. P.
managers aud report progress.
That committee are now at work,
and we believe if the citizens of this
precinct reapond, as they mav i ead
ily do, the result will be that we get
what we want. If this opportunity
(which the raging waters of the
Loup have thrown to us) is it slip,
it may be our very last iu thn di
rection, and it becomes us to use
every effort for success.
