Judge Chapman says he has received
a summons to be present in Des Moines,

which held the post of honor at Shiloh.
That brigade was composed of the 8, 12,
14 and 17th Iowa infantry and the
meeting is promised to be a grand affair.
The Judge says just how he is to be in
Des Moines and hold court in Lancaster
county at the same time puzzles him,
but, he thinks he will take the "Hornet

will be called. These are very important
cases involving the question. W hetlier
the great iron bridge spanning the Miss
ouri river at this point shall be taxed by
the county as a bridge independent of the
main line of road or whether it shall be
taxed simply as road-bed or in other
words, as any other mile or less of main
line track in Nebraska. This is an im
portant question and withholding com
ment for the present, until after the trial.
The Herald has quite a curiosity to know
whether it is a bridge or simply common
rail road track.

their private affairs may suffer some in
consequence of the very unpleasant busi
ness they are engaged in, away from home,
serving the people of the county, it is
just such men who make safe, prudent
jurors, and The Herald is especially
glad to see them doing their duty which
comes but once in a long time. We have

Nebraska Conference Notes.
The Nebraska Conference of the Meth
odist Episcopal Church closed its twenty
seventh session on Monday. It was held
in the beautiful St. Pauls of Lincoln
and was presided over by Bishop J. F.
Hurst whose presidency gave great satis
faction. He also spoke to the conference
on several occasions to the delight of al
who heard him His sermons on Sunday
was a masterly effort and showed
his ability to handle the word of
God in the light of history, science and
philosophy. He is a man of profound
learning and thoroughly at home in
his chosen work.
Among those present whose fame has
extended beyond the M. E. church, were
Rev. J. M. Thoburn, D. D.; Rev.
G. W. Gray, D. D., and Rev. W. A.
Spencer, D. D; the former is the leader
of the Methodist missionary forces in In
dia, and is now traveling through this
country in the interest of the missionary
cause, and to regain his failing health
He spoke, to the delight of large and
The Nedraska conference is composed
largely of young men who are cnthus
iastic and progressive, aud thoroughly
bent on pushing things. Tho business
of the conference was transacted with
intelligent dispatch, and at the close of
the session all went home with the de
termination to make a good record for
the coming year.
The session of the conference just
closed was an important one as delegates
to the general assembly were elected, both
clerical and lay. The progressive spirit
of the churcli is shown by the elections
to this highest body it the church. The
delegates are all new men, and compara
tively young men. Rev. C. F, Creighton
D. D.j leads the delegation and is ably
supported by Rev. J. W. Stewart and Rev.
A. C. Crosthwait. Progress is noted also
by the reports from all the charges, and in
better salaries paid the preachers, church
debts paid, new churches built, increase
in membership and in all the benevolent
collections, the missionary collections be
ing nearly $2,000 above last year. Per
haps nothing marks more surely the pro
gressive character of Methodism in the
west than the election of a
woman as a representative
from the lay conference to the general
conference. Mrs. Angie Newman is the
first woman ever elected by the M. E,
church to this important position, and
the Nebraska conference has the honor of
inaugurating this new movement in
ecclesiastical history. The lay conference
did no les3 wisely in electing with Mrs
Newman, Judge Reece, of Wahoo, as the
Time aud space forbid any further de
tails of the conference, but one other
event in connection with the conference
deserves a brief mention, however, that
is, the laying of the corner stone of the
Nebraska Wcslyan University. The
building is to be a magnificent one and
will stand about a half mile to the south
of navelock. The campass consists of
forty acres and is surrounded by a plat of
240 acres donated by the friends of the
enterprise. The ceremonies were conduct
ed by Bishop Hurst in the presence of
morethan a thousand'people. Dr. Moore,
chancellor of the Denver University,made
an addressjwhich the Lincoln State Jour
nal pronounced one of the most eloquent
ever delivered in Lincoln. The building
will be built of pressed brick with Colo
rado sandstone trimmings, and when
finished will have cost not less than $80,
000. It is the design of the Methodist
church to concentaate its educational
work here, and ertablish a school that
will be equal to anything in the country,
an honor to the church and worthy the
patranage of all desiring an education.
The enterprize seems fairly launched and
it is hoped the school will be open to
receive students one year hence.

Natural Cas Produces a Bis Boom.
Herndon, la., Sept. 20. It is doubtful
if any town in Iowa ever had such a
boom as Herdon is now having. It is
all on account of the natural gas found
here. Ten wells liuve been bored and
in every case the gas wa s found at a
depth of from 115 tol30 feet. The pres
sure is varionsly estimated at from 20 to
70 pounds to the square inch. The
Herdon Natural Gas and Land company
have secured 320 acres for a town site.
They are men of wealth and experience
and are using every effort to boom the
new town. Quite a number of busiuess
firms have been induced to locate here
and at least three manufacturing estab
lishments have been secured, viz.: A
large foundry and machine shop that
will run entirely by natural gas for heat
and power; a planing mill and a broom
factory. Negotiations are 'now going
on with several others. It is thought
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul com
pany will build repair shops here.
Herndon is located in the northeast
corner of Guthrie county, 110 miles from
Council Bluffs and fifty-two miles from
Des Moines, at the junction of the Wabash
Western and the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul railroads, on a perfectly level
prairie in a rich farming country, and
there is no town within fifteen miles in
either direction except Panoe, twelve
miles southeast. Three weeks ago the
population of Herndon was less than
fifty, while now it must be 200. Two
families are already using the gas for
cookimg, lighting and heating thei
houses. The laud company display the
gas in their office in a grand shape
Three brick blocks are in course of tree
tion and small frame houses are being
built at a rapid rate, and everybody is
wild with excitement. The adjoining
lands have either been bought or are held
at fabulous prices. Over 200 lots have
been sold in the last two weeks. A large-
gang of men and teams are at work
grading tho streets. The Herndon Week
