friends hope they may live many more years to enjoy the fruits of the
hardships of their pioneer days in Nebraska.

THE STREET RAILWAY
commencement of the Fremont street railway line, the receipts have been
fully up to the anticipation of the managers, and the outlook is in no
way discouraging to them. The convenience is already appreciated by the
people and will be more so with the approach of unpleasant weather. The
company has been laboring under the disadvantage of awaiting
developments for permanently systematizing the business and the use and
employment of green horses and experienced drivers, all of which will
soon be overcome. At present time the cars are started at 7 o’clock in
the morning and run until 8:30 in the evening, but it is soon expected
to put on more horses and continue the running time to a later hour at
night. In the mean time the cars are to be provided with colored head

CHIEF A C HULL
As was expected by
all who knew A.C. Hull, at the time he was elected chief of the fire
department, he is proving a very efficient man for the position. He has
been for several days attending to the unpleasant duty which requires
him to inspect and suggest improvements in the construction of
stovepipes and chimneys wherever he considers them unsafe, and of course
endangering not only the property of the owner but of that adjoining,
and we regret to hear of cases where his suggestions are ignored and his
power defied. We have in mind one case which has been reported by
several who consider their property exposed by an unsafe heating
arrangement, and yet the person who would be the first and possibly the
largest loser in case of a fire from it, stubbornly refuses to make a
change except compelled to do so by the authorities. We are glad there
are so few cases in the city to annoy our worthy and vigilant chief.

Do you folks realize
all of the exchange quarterlies we receive – there is over 1 ½ book
cases filled with them, some are in letter form from small groups, some
are large booklets, but they do contain lots of good hints and stories
of the various states.
