The Comanche Chief, Comanche, Texas, 17 July 1879
OFF TO BROWNWOOD
The long-looked-for band contest between the Comanche and Brownwood bands, takes place at the latter place tomorrow. The citizens of Brownwood, some time since offered a cup for the best band in Northwest Texas, and the Comanche band quickly accepted the challenge although they have been organized only two months. It is hard for us to speak flatteringly of our band, as both editors and one of our compositors are members of it, but we will say that our boys will strain every nerve to bring that cup home with them. The following is a list of members of the Comanche band:
Prof. C. RIEK, leader Bb clarinet; F.M. CLOWER, 1st Bb cornet; Mike ZERR, 2d Bb cornet; J.W. HILL, 1st Eb alto; D. ZWEIFLE, 2d Eb alto; Geo. HAM, Bb tenor trombone; R.T. HILL, Eb tuba; E.W. HOPE, snare drum; J.A. HARRIS, bass drum and cymbols.
The following cases have been tried and otherwise disposed of in the district court since our last issue.
Junius B. HARRIS vs. J.D. STEPHENS et.al., trespass to try title. Plaintiff takes a non-suit.
H.R. MARTIN & Co. vs. I.B. LUPTON et.al., trespass to try title and for damages. Judgment for plaintiff with writ of restitution.
J.D. STEPHENS et al., trespass to try title and for damages. Judgment for plaintiff for property and $130 damages.
