The David City Tribune pleads with
the boys of that place to quit gambling,
and with parents to know where their
boys are and what they are doing, es
pecially of nights. This is sound ad
vice, and will apply to more towns than

sentative district will do well to cast
their ballot for farmer Olson rather than
banker Green, who, it is well "known,
gambles for money.
The Annual Sessions of the North
Nebraska Teachers' Association will be

There will be an exhibit of school work

made a very creditable showing at Fre

should be far in advanco of it.
Mr. Barnhart or the State Live
Stock Commission last week killed a
glandered horse owned by John Stupfel
of this city. By the generosity of the
good people of Nebraska, John will get
about $10 for the horse. All glandered
horses should be killed because the dis
e;ise is deadly and contagious, but it is
not every state that provides for some
remuneration to the owner who makes
the sacrifice for the general good as well
:is for his own.
The grading of our county "schools
succeeds well in many districts. There
is no doubt but that the plan proposed
by Prof. Cramer is the -simplest and
most practicable that could be devised
under existing cirenmstances. It proves,
in those districts using it, a great stim
ulus to both pupil and parents. It is an
incentive to regular attendance, and at
tention to duty. To see the end of all
our work is always inspiring, in schools
Niels Olson is not a prohibitionist,
sis his democratic opponents have re
ported, ne voted against granting a
license to certain parties in Creston be
cause the number of free'-holder peti
tioners was not sufficient under the law.
R. H. Henry, one of the staunches! dem
ocrats in Platte county, did the- same
thing for the ,samo reason, precisely.
Olson is a good man in every respect,
and ought to receive the vote of every
honest citizen in this district, without
respect to party ties. If you are inclined
to think the Joubsaii is 'not right in
this matter, examine into the character
of Mr. Green, his opponent.
A very large audience greeted the
republican and democratic candidates
for congress last Saturday evening, com
posed of adherents to both parties. Mr.
Weatherby opened and closed the dis
cussion, Mr. Dorsey's speech being sand- J
wiched between. It is our opinion that
Mr. Dorsey was far ahead of Mr. Weath
erby in jgiving reasons for supporting
his side of the political contest. Both
were very gentlemanly toward each
other, and as citizens made a good im
pression upon the audience. We be
lieve in political discussion by opposing
candidates, more especially for-offices of
this nature, for thus the people them
selves can judge as to personal fitness
for the office. -
- The anti-prohibition meeting of
Monday evening in this city, all things
considered was a very creditable demo
cratic side-show. The ' procession was
good, the torches were bright, the an
vils did their -duty, the bands' played
well, and Mr-Richey certainly advocated
voting for Cleveland and McShane, and
what more could be expected? . We were
not present at the meeting, but, judging
from what we have heard 'of it, -we be-.
lieve another such meeting would do
much good to the republican cause in
this city. These fellows know that the
republican party is not a prohibition
party, but they would be glad to make
somebody believe it is. The fact is that
extremists, both ways, are in deadly op
position to republicans, whose position
is fortified by common sense and the ap
proval . of the practical, wide-awake
Last Thursday evening a party of
boys gathered itt front of Mr. J. E. Tas
ker's residence while he was absent and
Mrs. Tasker was alone in the house and
proceeded to make a general racket,
blowing horns, beating drums, old stove
piper etc and causing further annoy
ance by turning the slats of the blinds'
and making remarks- such as "she is all
alone," "we will .wait till he comes
home," eta, which they kept up for about
an hour and a half. Mr. Tasker made a
complaint against all the boys whom' he
could identify and on Saturday morning
four of them visited his honor Judge
Cowdery and received a kind and gentle
admonition. The complaint, Mr. Tasker
says, was by no. means made in malice
but as a duty to society and in the in
terest of good order. Certainly it is high
time that somebody should take a. stand
against that relic of barbarism, the char
ivari, which' never did any "good, and has
been the cause of a great deal of annoy
ance, trouble, and, in .not a few instances,
loss of life. It may, in justice to the
drum corps, be stated, that they claim
they went to the residence to do their
best in the way of a serenade, with no
thought of disrespect or annoyance.

The Schuyler Quill of the 24th has
this to say in re.gard to a case recently
mentioned in the Joujutatj: "A couple
years ago a young fellow sold a soda
water fountain, to Jap Shultz for the
sum of $150 and 'collected tho money.
His name is Edward C. Goetzinger and
tho fountain was the property of one, U.
IL'Hribbell.' Last Friday Goetzinjjor
was brought here under arrest and has.
ljeen confined in jail since, under charge
of embezzlement instituted by Huhbell,
who claims that Goetzinger failed to pay
him for the fountain.' Yesterday his at
torneys, F. M. Hatch and G.iL Doughty
tried to get him released on a writ .of
habeas corpus. - The case was prosecu
ted by county attorney Zentmyer before
Judge Thomas and has been postponed
as a result till evidence cart be obtained
as he was brought here under requisi
tion papers from Helena, Montana.
Goetzinger claims he was to sell the
fountain for what be could get for it and
pay Huhbell $70 for it and it. looks like
the latter was trying. to make the former
pay him more for the article because he
sold it for so much' more. It fact it
seems to us as a piece of malice on the
part of Hubbell."
