BROKEN BOW. Neb. March 2. (Spe

miles west of Merna. was totally destroyed
by fire at about I o'clock Sunday morning
letter In the day a tramp, giving the name
of Jim Hart, was arrested by the con
stable at Merna and brought here last night
by Sheriff Kennedy.
Hart admitted that he went Into the
school house Sunday night and slept there
He also confessed Jo building a fire to

Grand Island, Neb., March. 2S. Several
unusual features will attend the municipal
contest In this city on April 4. There
is no party nomination outside of the
socialists' nor Is there even a platform
adopted by a gathering of citizens. And
yet the Issues are quite plainly set forth.
Ths campaign Is one against gambling and
the illegal sale of liquor, complaint against.
bolh of which has become general within
the past six months or a year.
Until today,- however, there was not a
definite declaration by any candidate on
any subject. Charles G. Ryan, attorney,
business man, property owner, for seven
years the president of the Commercial club,
a conservative democrat, recently president
of the Nebraska Bar association, was rec
ommended by the voters of four of six
caucuses. One of the remaining two ward
caucuses remained silent as to the mayor
and Uie other recommended Councilman
James F. . Rourke. who has withdrawn,
being a warm supporter of Ryan.
Chris P. Blrk, for many years a member
of the city council. Is a candidate by petl
tlon and was recommended by his ward
which later, however. Joined in the recom
mendation of Mr. Ryan. His ward declared
against the public gambling but was silent
on the other moral question Involved.
Blrk has been chairman of the council
committee on lighting and has had much
to do with the municipal light and water
plant. Ryan has never personally been a
municipal ownership advocate, excepting
as to water and all affairs of a sanitary
nature. However, he is out with the fol
lowing declaration, unsolicited:
The municipal ownership and operation
of certain utilities Is the settled policy of
our city. While it thus remains those
utilities and all public property will re
ceive fostering care, careful supervision
and economical management. In the Interest
of the public service, and upon this pro
position there should be no honest differ
ences of opinion. .. . -j. ,.
This would seem to make the three can
didates for the socialists have a candidate
In the person of J. D. Richardson practic
ally occupying the same ground aa to the
present municipal water and lighting plant,
and confines the contest to the moral Is
sues, If not to personal qualifications ex
clusively; for if the throw-the-ltd-away
element goes to Blrk, aa Is expected. It
will be merely because of a choice of the
lesser of two evils. He has so far made
no public statement on the moral ques
tions, while Ryan has taken the aggressive
In the matter.
No Issues are Involved in the several
councllmanlo contests or in the contest
among four candidates for three member
ships of the Board of Education.

An unparalleled chance to place within your home a piano of exceptional merit at about 40 per cent of its actual
worth. January 1st we had shipped to us 20 sample pianos from factories which we did not represent. They hoped
that by placing the pianos with us, we would recognize the merits of the instruments, and add their line of pianos
to those we already carried.
As we1 are now carrying 24 of the leading makes of the yorld, we have no room on our floors for any other lines,
and we were compelled to notify the factories that we could not use them, and asked where we were to ship them to.
In reply we were told if we could sell the pianos at cost, that we would do them a favor.
Saturday Morning We Are Going to Do This
Sell 20 pianos, made up expressly as samples. Workmanship, materials and designs are as good as the best, and
Saturday morning, if you are fortunate enough to take advantage of one of these offerings, you will secure a fine
piano of high grade standard make, at an extraordinary, exceptional and unparalleled bargain price.
