Samuel P. Martin was an early set
tier in Nebraska and located near Belle

which South Omaha is located, and hi:
wealth accumulated to a fortune. Mr.

last week and remained over in the city
a few days, and was suffocated by the
escape of gas in his bed chamber. Th'

affect the reyival meeting at the Metho

previously, and the services lacked not
the least in interest; and a number gath
ered at the mourners' bench when the
call was made. Mr. Miller is much
loved by his converts, and his talks are
?ricf and to the point, so that all like to
hear him; while the singing is conducted
in a pleasing manner and is an attractive
feature of bis meetings.
Last week in a drunken row in a
saloon in Council Bluffs a man was
killed, and of course, the city officials
then rushed forward and found the man
running the saloon where the deed was
done, was violating the prohibitory law
and closed him up. It shows the kind
of law enforcers Council Bluffs has up in
a light that is disgusting. To have the
law openly violated every day on every
hand and no effort to enforce the law,
then when a man is murdered because of
their negligence, it's terrible and the man
running the shop is run out of town, or
jailed, and his business, of course, is shut
up. Sunday the pastor of the Broadway
M. E. church of that city, Rev. D. C.
Franklin, voiced the sentiments of the
respectable element of his city with a
plain and forcible denunciation of the
city officials negligence, brought out by
district coubt cullihcs.
