These were incubator chickens, raised
early and with great care and patient
labor. Now something in the form of
man stole them stole the labors of a

Prohibition Fifty Convention
Not as a delegate convention for that
is a thing of the past but in a mass
convention at the city of Lincoln today
the prohibitionists cohorts are gathering.
They have their ideas as to what is the
proper things to do " in regard to the
liquor traffic in the state and nation.
While they are not so large in numbers
they make up for that in the loyalty to
the cause they espouse. There will no
doubt be a large number of the faith

devise ways and means for the stop
ping and keeping stopped the manu
facture and sale of intoxicating liquors,

went into effect they cannot meet in
delegate convention, but are compelled
to assemble in mass convention, which
makes everybody a delegate who be

In the city of Natick, Rhode Island,
June 16, 1839, Henry J. Streight was
bom and here he lived until he was six
teen years old. In the state of Rhode
Island his father, Jason Streight, was a
harness-maker, and also ran a con fee
tionary store and a livery stable, and at
all these Henry helped his father. Dur
ing his younger days he had an ambition
to become a sailor and this has stayed
with him ever since, but the combining
of circumstances has caused his life to
be spent in different lines.
In the year 1849, when the gold ex
citement was at its height, S. H. Tefft,
a brother of his mother, became imbued
with the desire to see the gold fields and
to dig and acquire the precious metal,
so he went to California, and in return
ing became enamored with western
Iowa. After returning he talked up the
countries and the possibilities which it
offered to the extent that his father was
induced to move to Iowa. Not being
sure he would like it he asked Henry to
stay and look after matters in Natick
He told his father that he had better
not leave him in charge of affairs as
there was a possibility that he might
take a notion to go to sea. His father
said he would solve that problem and so
placed the business in shape and took
young Henry with him, starting for the
west. The . means of . traveling were
not the best in those days. They took
the train to Syracuse, New York, and
thence to Buffalo, crossing Lake Erie,
and down through Georgian Bay and
Lake Michigan to Chicago, and arrived
in Iowa at a point about five miles north
of where Red Oak now stands, in Sep
tember, 1855. Here at a place they
called Hazel Dell, they built a dam in
Nishnabotna river and prepared to build
a saw mill as the country was rapidly
developing and there was no lumber and
no railroads to carry any from outside
During that fall and winter they had
about gotten the mill ready for use when
they received word that one of them
would have to go back east and see to
some business which was left unfinished
at home. It was decided that Henry go,
so in March he started and was follow
ed by his father in July. Having settl-
,ed up- allr the basiness they, started for
the west in September, bringing the
family with them, also the family of
Mr. Tefft who remained there when they
went back. The route which they had
traveled before was a very pleasant one
and they wished to make it again but
in getting on the wrong train they were
not carried across Lake Michigan as
they intended. This was somewhat of
a disappointment to them but it was
soon turned to joy, for the boat which
they were to cross the lake on, the Ni
agara, was burned on that trip and
thirty lives lost. When they arrived at
Iowa City, the terminus of the railroad,
they found Mr. Tefft waiting and ready
to take the next train east as he had
heard of the catastrophy of the Niagara
and supposed them all lost.
They did a good business with the saw
mill for a year or two, then selling it
and buying a half interest in a store -at
Frankfort which was about six miles
southeast of Hazel Dell or what is known
now as Stennet, and about the same dis-
ance from Red Oak. Here they done a
good business and kept a force of four
clerks, one of whom was Henry Streight,
whose duty it wa3 to keep the books of
the firm. After a year Henry went into
business for himself, running it about a
year when he sold out and went to Pike's
Peak in 1860 where he mined for a short
period, returning to Frankfort, Iowa,
during 1861, and enlisted in the 5th ba
talion of cavalry attached to the 25th
Missouri infantry, company C, during
the summer and at the battle of Lex
ington the company was captured and
paroled. Mr. Streight then came to
Plattsmouth and worked for August
Rheinacle three months at the harness
trade in a building near where the
Standard Oil company house stands, on
the corner of Pearl and Second, begin
ing in March, 1862. Resigning his po
sition he again enlisted in the service
and was mustered out in February, 1863.
His father sold his store in Frankfort,
Iowa, and they engaged in the harness
business where Kraft's Clothing store
now stands and during that summer ran
a meat wagon from here to Oreapolis
which was a good little town at that
On November 22, 1863, Henry J.
Streight and Miss Elizabeth C. Wells
were united in marriage. He still con
tinued in the harness business with his
father; during the summer of 1864 he
enlisted again, this time in the 1st Ne
braska, company B, for four months
service under General R. R. Livingston
whose operations were against the In
dians and after the term was out, con
tinued in the harness business until 1867.
Selling out to his father he engaged in
the confectionary business adding toys,
notions, and finally gents furnishing
goods but after a short time discontinu
ed the latter. When Capt. C. A. Marsh
all was postmaster he ran his store in
the lobby of the postoftice. After dis
posing of the store he engaged in the
hotel business, running the Saunders
house until 1876, when he went to South
Bend and engaged in the grain, stock
and general merchandise business. There
he stayed for ten years, at the end o
that time he returned to Plattsmouth
to take charge of the canning factory
which was in operation then. Here he
continued for a period of two years and
at the end of this time he was appoint
ed postmaster where he served for the
space of five years and was succeeded
bv W. II. Fox. having served in this
position from 1888 to 1893.
In 1892 he bought Henry Boeck's stock
of furniture and in partnership wit
John P. Sattler, engaged in the furni
ture business, occupying the Boeck
building where they were at the time
of the flood of July 6, 1898, in which he
was a heavy loser. -
in uecember, lyuz, he bought am
moved into the building where he and
his son, W. J. Streight, now have thei
store. The floods of 1893 did them con
siderable damage, the firm still being
Streight & Sattler. September 1, 1898,
Will J. Streight succeeded Mr. Sattler,
the firm becoming Streight & Streight,
which do the business now.
In 1865 Mr. Streight joined the Odd
Fellows, Platte lodge No. 7, and still
remains a member. He remembers of
having seen a deer pass along Sixth
street in front of where Zuckweiler &
Lutz now have a store, and over by the
old gas house and into the timber which
skirted the creek then.
Mr. btreight and wile have just re
turned from a trip to a number of Iowa
points among which was Red Oak, and
the little towns at which he lived during
the latter fifties and early sixties. The
town of Frankfort, which had a park
and business houses all around it and a
population of something over two hun
dred people is entirely gone now. He
brought back a piece of walnut board
from the sidinsr of the first house that
was built in Montgomery county, Iowa
and the logs of which he hauled and were
sawed at the mill he and his father built
in 1855-6.
During all this time Mr. Streight has
been a worker, and always treated his
fellow men as he would like to have
them treat him. During the whole of
his life he has not a made an enemy
f hat has remained such for any length
of time, and at this time can give the
rierht hand of fellowship to all. He has
endeavored to be obedient to his maker,
faithful to his country and fraternal to
his fellow men.

In connection with the foregoing
list it should be borne in mind that it
will be measurably reduced by the 33
names of the survivors spoken of a
coming ashore in lifeboats at Shelter
Cove Monday.
No Panic; Women Brave.
Eight minutes after the San Pedro
truck the Columbia the latter vessel
had filled with water and sunk. The
night saloon watchman notified all
the passengers to go to the upper
deck. Without clothing they climbed
out of their berths and rushed out.
It was only two or three minutes be
fore the decks were awash. Six
boats and three liferafts were cut
loose and as many passengers as pos
sible were crowded into them. There
.were ? scarcely, . any .. evidence , of ,
panic, me women acting witn nero
Ism. The crew of the San Pedro immedf
ately lowered a boat and picked up a
large number oX survivors.
Capt. Doran and First Officer Whit,
ney were on the deck when the Col
umbia sank, the captain's last words
being: "God bless you."
Blame Columbia's Officers.
O. Swan son, a sailor of the San
Pedro, was at the wheel Saturday
night when the fatal collision oc
curred. In his report to Sailors'
Agent John Erlckson, the blame is
laid upon the shoulders of the Colum
bia's officers. Other members of the
crew of the San Pedro substantiate
the story of Swanson.
