Gus. G. Becher was in town yester
day on his way to Hebron to attend the
nuptials of a friend. In answer to the
query if he was a candidate for secretary
of state he replied in the negative, but

North Platte country will give him a

Occasionally the "jiner" gets mixed
as to the society he is in, and no wonder,
if he meets with three or four different
ones a week. They nearly all have their
preferences, too, and one can readily tell,
by the inadvertant use of "post" or
"lodge," of a man's propensities to stick
by his colors even in a "camp," which
should, for the time being at least, be
the recipient of all his loyal obedience.

N. H. Parks of the Greely Herald on'
Friday purchased the Telegram of this
city, and took immediate possession.
Judge Parks is a veteran in newspaper
work, a practical printer, and will, no
doubt, make a worthy successor to D. F.
Davis, who has for several years been
the proprietor of the Telegram. There
are many ways in which newspaper pro
prietors can and do work together for
the good of the community, and we have
no doubt that The Journal and the
Telegram will, as heretofore along these
lines, pull together for all the best in
terests of Columbus and Platte county.
The retiring proprietor of the Telegram,
Mr. Davis, has given us, in work and ex
pense, a ranch better newspaper than he
has received remuneration for, and dur

The city of Indianapolis had a suit
against a brewers' association under an
ordinance of the city providing that all
breweries and distilleries depots or
offices must pay $1,000 before they can
operate. It was contested. The con
tention on the part of the association
WAB that the ordinance was a discrimi
nation in favor of local dealers and a
hindrance to interstate commerce. Chief
Justice Howard of the supreme court of
Indiana, in a decision on the ISth of
March, held that these companies were
subject to the laws of the state and to
the same police regulations as if their
liquors had been produced in the state.
It would be advisable, doubtless, for
Nebraska cities and towns to look up
this matter, and at least do justice to
home interests. No discrimination in
favor of outsiders.
Henry T. Spoerry, the retiring mem
ber of the city council from the First
ward, has done conscientious work from
the start. We believe that he did not
lose any time from his duties (except,
perhaps, for a brief while, when he was
absent from the city); he certainly took
an active, lively interest in all that came
before the council for consideration;
and, having his time wholly at his own
disposal, very much of it was given for
the benefit of this city. On some sub
jects he was not in line with the council,
but after making strenuous contests for
his views, when voted down, he always
submitted with good grace, and con
tinued to work along just the same as
Clarence Newman, the retiring mem
ber of the council from the Third ward,
made one of the most efficient members
of that body, the legislature of our city.
Chairman of the committee on finance,
he gained the sobriquet "Watch dog of
the Treasury," which he well deserved,
and in an honorable sense. The office of
councilman is one, more of honor than
of emolument, and where credit is due
we believe credit ought to be given, for
faithful work done in the service of the
public. Mr. Newman's knowledge of
public affairs, gamed by official service
in other offices in the county, has been
available during his term for the benefit
of the tax-payers of the city.
The Richland correspondent of the
Schuyler Sun says: Alice Plumb com
menced the summer term of school in
the Binder district Monday; Richland
post-office is now a money-order office; a
6port went hunting and after crawling a
half mile on his hands and knees, suc
ceeded in sending two rifle balls through
a decoy goose; a young man on the plat
form at the depot pressed a Hag staff
against the side of the coaches as they
passed by, making a scratch across the
side of the cars. Two days after a U. P.
detective put in an appearance, and the
young man settled at SCO.
John E. Hoffman, the retiring coun
cilman of the Second ward, has made a
most carefnl, painstaking official. We
never could see that he had any fault
but one in the discharge of his dnties
and that is that he is altogether too
modest for his merit, but even this was
not allowed to interfere when matters of
importance came up. When he address
ed the council, his remarks were always
to the point, and we do not recall an in
stance where his vote was not cast for
the best interests of his constituents.

Mr. McKelvey was born at Berlin,
Wisconsin, April 7, 1857 and, died on the
thirty-seventh anniversary of his birth
day. He was married October 4, 1863, to
Miss Nelia Matthews of this city.
For eight or ten years past he had i

never recovered. A post-mortem ex

is with the physicians.
The funeral services were held st the
