prominent young farmer ten miles west
of Schuyler was killed by a west bound

was cut off, and his right arm, right leg
and head badly mangled. He had been
in this city earlier in the evening, having
some money, drinking, etc When pulled

day found about the same state of feel
ing as formerly in regard to M street,
themselves contending that the street

ested property owners on Eleventh
street and elsewhere strenuous in con
tending for their rights in the business
streets of the city. It seems to be the
general opinion that Monday was only
intended as an occasion for the re-assertion
of the intention of the Union Pacific
officials in regard to the freight depot
It is presumed that only a legal contest
will decide the matter.

to be on the program. Neumarker re
