Put in Establishment at Six Nebraska
Towns With Llain Stores at
the State Capital
Burlington railway employes who are
members of the unions are planning the
establishment of a system of coopera
tive stores, with Lincoln as the central
distributing point, where the main
house will be located, says the Lincoln
Journal. Branch stores are proposed
for Wymore, Havelock, McCook, Al
liance and Omaha. This matter has !
been under consideration for some time
and is fostered by the labor organiz
ations to which the men belong. It was
discussed at the last Saturday meeting
of railway employes in Lincoln, as were
other matters relating to protection of
members and employes of the road.
Sessions of representatives of these
unions were held Monday and yester
day at the Lincoln hotel, and much cau
tion has been exercised to prevent the
proceedings from becoming public up
to this time. It is understood that at
the Sunday meeting the matter of
freight rates reduction was also dis
cussed and that the employes of the
road have lined up solidly against furth
er encroachment on the revenues of the
Concerning the plan to establish co
operative stores this statement was
made yestesday by those interested in
the work of organization:

railway employes, which has been meet

Friends of William Andrews,
Surprise Him Last Even
ing, His Seventeenth
As a pleasant way of marking the
passening of the seventeenth anniver
sary of Master William Andrews, a
large number of his friends gathered
at his home last evening and made the
hours seem much shorter, as they were
happy ones. The occasion was cele
brated with games, music, and a most
delightful luncheon, in the later even
ing. Many presents were given as
tokens of the love and respect in which
Master William was held by his friends.
Those present and to help in the cele
bration of the occasion were, Misses
Muriel Barthold, Kate Hesse, Agnes
Ward, Masters Henry Hesse, William
Andrews, Everett Ward, Roy Denson,
James Andrews, Glen Jones, August
Hesse, Sandy Andrews and Louis

plan for the incorporation of a joint co
operative wholesale and retail store of
eieantic proportions. A board of trus
tees were elected to carry out the plans
as authorized by the executive com
mittee. The outlying districts seem
enthusiastic and are continally sending
in inquiries as to progress.
"It is proposed to establish branch
stores at Wymore, Havelock, McCook,
Alliance and Omaha, with a main store
at Lincoln as a center. It is figured
that about 20 per cent can be made,
and this profit the organization thinks
can be well used for the furtherance of
union work. The plans, while not com
plete, were discussed at length, and
board of trustees was elected to carry
out the plans outlined by the exective
committee. The ground plan some
what resembles that of the plan used
in the establishment of the co-opera
tion book store at the state university,
only of infinitely greater proportions.
It is planned that in time the store can
own its own buildings and place halls at
the disposal of the various organizations
for the permanent homes and club
rooms, besides furnishing necessaries

where he argued the railroad injunc
tion suit in the supreme court of the
United States, says the Lincoln News
i Deputy Will B. Bose, who appeared
with him in court, stopped to visit his

of the Burlington road to enjoin the en

law and the anti-pass law.
I When his attention was called to the
in the express rate cases, he said:
"Yes, I read of it in the newspapers
when I was away. If I am to have to
nent the railway commission and the
express companies too, it will place an
additional burden upon me as attorney
for the state."
Mr. Thompson called on the inter
state commerce commission when he
was in Washington for certain evidence
that body has received relative to the
business of the express companies.
He supposed he could get the inform
ation that is on . file, but has been told
that some of it was obtained with a
promise that it should not be used by
the interstate commerce commission.
The commission is to inform him soon
whether or not he can get the desired
information for use in the state courts.

Miss Agnes Thrasher Be
comes the Bride of Last
Last Saturday evening at seven
o'clock was solemnized the marriage of
one of the fair daughter of this place.
Miss Agnes Thrasher, and Andrew J.
Miljan, of that place. Of the bride,
all here know a young lady of many
accomplishents, loved and respected by
a host of friends, having grown to
womanhood in the city, she has gained
and maintaines the friendship of all her
acquaintances. She is a sensible, jolly
and very agreeable young lady, having
gone last fall to make her home in the
northwest, where she secured employ
ment in a store in Deadwood as sales
lady, and making her home there dur
ing the winter. Some three weeks
since, she visited her parents, for a
few days, and returning to her duties,
after a short stay here. The groom,
Mr. Andrew J. Miljan, is a young
man of good character, and very in
dustrious, being a steam fitter by
trade, and is in the employ of the
Homestake mining company. The
newly married couple, have a nice
cottage fitted and furnished, where
they immediately went to house keep
ing. The Journal with the many friends
of the bride, and now the groom also,
extends to them congratulations, and
wishes the consumation of that desire
for happiness and prosperity implanted
in every human heart.
A Successful Party.
The success of the first birthday
party of the Social Workers of the
Methodist church, was measured in
more ways than one. It was a finan
cial success for if we were to count the
ages by the amount of receipts, which
is perhaps correct, the combined ages
would have amounted to 1780, for the
crowd and had the years been piled up
on one person it would have made them
feel quite aged. Those who registered
amounted to 1285, but no doubt some
of the girls were so young they did not
care it to be known while perhaps some
of the boys were so old they wished to
keep it a secret for the same reason,
any way 495 years were unaccounted
for. The evening was spent in a very
delightful manner, the "Mixed Quart
ette' 'came dropping in on the crowd and
furnished some very nice music, which
added to the beautiful selections already
presented, and to the enjoyment of the
evening. A string prize game was a
very enjopable feature, and was con
ducted by blindfolding one of the Der-
sons present, and giving them a pair of
shears and allowing them the present,
they cut from a string which suspended
it from a line stretched across the
room. A stick of candy or a lead pen
cil was the reward generally, Judge A.
J. Beeson got a stick of candy which
lasted him all evening and was good
judgement from the way he smacked
The delicious lunch which was given
during the later part of the pleasant
evening, was a very enjoyable feature,
and was composed of cake and cocoa,
with other delightful things to cheer
the inner man. All the sixty-five per
sons present were loud in their praise
of the genial hostess Miss Sallie Brady
and her assistants, who furnished so en
joyable a time, as well as providing a
means of purchasing a new isle carpet
for the church.
Loses Finger a! Shops
Yesterday while at his usual occupa
tion, at the Burlington shops, Antone
Toman, a blacksmith, whose work is
the making of bolts, in some way got
his finger in the machine, which severed
the index finger of his left hand. Some
months since he had the misfortune to
lose the index finger of the right
hand. This loss under he circumstances
comes very heavy.
Work to Begin April 1.

wards and precincts of the county will

Friday, to consult on matters of interest
regarding their duties, and to receive
their final instructions for beginning
their work. There will be quite a bunch
of them present. Their work will be
gin the first of April.

AT OAK HILL
Are the Remains of Seth E.
Clintberg, The Funeral
noon. In the noonday strength of manhoods
prime, when with bodily vigor and
strength of miad, when in the stirring
activities, of the life which with his
associates are making a newer and bet
ter, Nation, keeping step with the ad
vancements of the day and age, was
the life of Seth E. Clintburg cut off.
With but a few weeks, absence from
the stirring busy scenes of active life,
the end came, and the report, a surprise
to his many friends, who thought his
the very embodyment of robust health.
His remains came to his old home seek
ing interment among the scenes, which
has been his for most his whole life.
The remains came from Omaha, this
morning in charge of his sister and
husband, Mr and Mrs C. J. Anderson,
and were taken to the Swedish Mission
church, where they remained in state
until two o'clock when the services
which, marked the last sad rites, were
Rev. A. A. Randall of the Methodist
church, delivered the funeral address,
and the interment was made in Oak
Hill cemetery, there to await the trump
of the Angel, who shall announce the
coming of the resurection morn.
Seth E. Clintberg, was born March
20th, 1876, in Stockholm, Swtden, and
and when t hree years of age, came to
this country, with his parents, who
settled at Saronvihe this state, in 1879,
staying there until 1882, when they
came to this city. Here he attended
the High school but did not remain long
enough to graduate. Then he entered
the Burlington blacksmith shops where
he worked for five years, learning the
trade, afterwards working for some
time at Havelock, and here also at
various jobs, until he engaged with G.
R. Olson, in the photograph business,
about 5 years ago. At this he was
employed, when taken with this last
Thining Them Out
A lot of fake papers are being forced
off the earth by recent postoffice rul
ings closing the mails to publications
which are not legitimate. For a long
time the town of Augusta, Maine, has
been the home of many worthless
"family papers, " filled with rubbishy
stories and equally rubbishy advertise
ments. The price of these papers to
subscribers was absurdly small; ten to
fifteen cents per year, with liberal
reductions for a club of one and
a halt, subscribers were ollered all
sorts of premiums, cheap chromos be
ing the favortes; and naturally the
subscription lists became as long as
the moral law. Then the publishers
made money frcm the advertising col
umns. All these fake papers find them
selves up against it, and the homes of
the American people will no longer be
plastered with large red and green
chromos representing George Washing
ton holding the pass at Thermopylae, or
Goliah killing David with, his little
hatchet. Some of the rules laid down
by the postoffice authorities seem a
trifle severe, but it is a blessing to see
the fake publications being weeded out.
The legitimate ones will profit by it
the long run.

Last Sad Rites Celebrated
Over the Remains of Peter
Rauen This Morning at
St. John's Church

last respects were paid the memory of

the last respects were paid, the re
mains were interred in the Catholic

has been instrumental in the upbuilding
of this city, as has this man should, be
and is cherished by his many friends.
Since 18G4, this man has given his life
to this city, and many a hard blow for
its success has he struck.
