Judge O. P. Mason.
In the death of Judge Mason the
state loses one of the greatest char
acters of her history. He came to
Nebraska the 25th day of July, 1855,
locating at Nebraska City where he
resided until 1871 when he moved to
Lincoln, where he has lived ever
He soon took a place in the front
rank of the legal profession and
was almost without a rival in Ne
braska as a criminal lawyer, until
he went on the bench as chief
justice, June 15, 1867, a few months
after the state was admitted to the
Judge Mason was alaways strong
in whatever he engaged. As a
judge, he had a rough exterior,
but back of that a fine, warm and
active sense of justice, and a large
ness and courage that caused him
to change his rulings and reverse
himself without hesitation when he
concluded, as he often did, that he
had gone wrong. His mind moved
like a cyclone and he grasped the
decisive points of a controversy
readily; and his legal learning was
very extensive, enabbling him to
pursue the subjeet in all its bear
ings in the ftdl light of precedent.
Since retiring from the bench in
1872 he has ever been in the full
practice of the law, and has been
active in all public affairs of a
general nature, filling the place of
one of the strongest men of the
In territorial time he was conspi
cuous in the legislative and all
general public affairs. Indeed but
little of the history of the affairs of
the leading men of Nebraska can
be written with Judge Mason en
He was married to Mary J. Tur
ner of Minersville, N. Y. Soon
after he came to Nebraska. All the
people about Nebraska City speak
the praises of Mrs. Mason. She
died in May. 1874, leaving as a fruit
of the marriage, Jessie, (now Mrs.
Harris), Grace, (now Mrs. Helaud
H. Wheeler), Alice and Bessie.
Judge Mason was born at Brook
field, Madison county, New York,
May 13, 1829.

Lincoln, and will be buried to-day
at Nebraska City. He leaves be

Our city is enshrouded in a dark
ness as thick atid opaque as tar.
Man is born but to die. Some
die in the noble discharge of an un
selfish duty, and others in their
last feeble moments cover them
selves with an ignominy too much
to be printed.
Our old friend Norman L.Baker
is of the latter class. He used to be
the caper, but he don't go now. lie
played ball some years back but
the whirligig of time has got in its
destroying licks and Norman don't
play anymore. He thinks that he
does, but he only makes a bold, bad
bluff. Some other people in this
village by the big muddy thought
so until yesterday but they, too,
have changed their minds.
When the sad and mournful intel
ligence reached the city last night,
the handful of sports that braved
the storm long enough to receire
the news folded their tents like the
Arabs and silently stole away.
But enough! Let us coldly and
calmly view yesterday's game from
this distance by the aid of the tele
graph and see why it is thus.
And, first, we are told our afore
said friend, Norman L. Baker, Esq.,
was pounded into the earth; that
the "Hustlers" batted him for
twelve base hits; that one of these
was a home run and another was a
But Plattsmouth got a nice little
bunch of hits also. Some nine, and
three of them were home runs.
Leslie got one of these and Messrs.
Maupin and Dunn got the re
mainder. So our old friend, Mr.
Baker, hit the ball!
Well, in the error column our
boys only made one and the
"Hustlers" got five. That was nice.
So it seems that the Hastings team
won by simply shocking Mr. Baker
In the seventh inning the home
team fell onto our good old back
number, Baker, with a great and
unusual relish and Norman
thought that the Milwaukees had
him again. They pounded out
seven runs in that inning and two
in the eighth, and won the game.
No, Leslie, your days of useful
ness are past. Your proper place is
in the stable with the rest of the
car horses. You have reached the
zenith of your power and the smp
toms of 'old age and decay are in
your hair. You're not in it.

Miss Allice Wilson, one of our
most prominent teachers in the
city schools, returned home last
night from an extended trip in

The Fremont Semi-Weekly Tri
bune strikes a decisive blow at the
Hastings newspapers for their un
principled mud slinging at the
Fremont ball team. The Tribune
intimates that Hastings stole the
game and then resorts to Abuse in
order to cover up their crime.
While Hastings was not "in it" to
such an extent that she could steal
the game from Plattsmouth, she
was not slow in getting in her work

A son of Mr. Bennett Chrissiser,
living two miles east of Murray,
died very suddently last Saturda'
morning, of inflamation of stomach.
The funeral took place Sabbath af
ternoon at 2 p. m. at the Methodist
church at Eight Mile Grove; a large
assembly of people gathered to
show their sympathy to the bereave
family in their hour of sorrow.
Once again it becomes our pleas
ant duty to report news from Mur
ray and surrounding country. It
has been some time since items
from this locality have been re
ported, but as we were visiting
familiar haunts of bygone days and
the home of our childhood, all
other dufies were lain aside, but we
take up our pen as of old and begin
the "old story" again.
The O. M. Society of Murray de
cided to have a tea drinkhfg on last
Saturday afternoon, and one of the
crowd discovering that it was one
of the number's birthday decided to
surprise her. It being the birthday
of Miss Jess Rankin they proceeded
to her home, one mile east of Mur
ray, and spent the afternoon very
sociably together. Another meet
ing in the near future is looked for.
Last night while the elements
were raging most furiously, the
barn of Mr. Andy Graham, located
about half mile south east of the
station house was struck by lightn
ing and burned to the ground. The
loss is estimated at $700, there being
Last evening at 9 o'clock the dyna
mo at the electric power house was
damaged by lightning to such an
extent that it will have to be re
paired considerably. No sooner
was the damage done until the in
candescent lights about the city
were extinguished and ye depend
encies left in egyptian darkness.
The aparatus furnishing power for
the street car was damaged like
wise. We are informed that it will
be a few days before they can be re
paired sufficiently to be used.
Don't forget the entertainment at
the Presbyterian church, to-morrow
Thursday evening, there will be
music and singing by the the mem
bers of the chorus of the Presby
terian, Methodist, Baptist and
Christian churches, and Y. M. C. A.

sisters and Kitty Agnew, also a
violin solo by Miss Lilly Kauble,
a number of recitatioes by our
young people. Will be followed

and we believe will be a most en
joyable time to all who attend.
