HEER U TOWN
J. S. McCoy Steps Off His Run For
a Few Hours With Friends.
J. S. McCoy, one of the veteran Bur
lington engineers, was in the city this
morning for a few hours, having come
in to make a flying visit with some of
his old time friends. Mr. McCoy is one
of the old men in the Burlington service
having been running a train for that
company for the past thirty years and
during the last twelve years he has had
the run through thi3 city on Nos. 7 and
4. For many years Mr. McCoy lived
here when the division point was lo
cated here and in conversation with a
Journal reporter, he stated that he
still liked Plattsmouth better than any
place which he had ever lived in. He
says that should he ever retire from
the road it is his intention to return to
this city where his parents and children
sleep in the cemetery. Joe, as all the
old timers affectionately call him, is
one of the best men in the Burlington
service and everyone who met him to
day hastened to grasp his hand and bid
him a hearty welcome to the city.
Mr. McCov while here took occasion to
put in a few good, hard licks for W. C.
Cowgill, the democratic candidate for
railroad commissioner, although he is
not a democrat himself. Mr. McCoy
has long been known as a republican of
republicans, but this year he thinks a
change advisable. He returned to Lin
coln on the mail train at noon.

Work on the Burlington Subway
Work on the new subway under the
Burlington tracks is progressing now
with considerable rapidity. The ex
cavation is now fairly way under the
tracks and things are commencing to
appear real business like. The dirt
which is being removed by wheel bar
row at present, is being piled over the
bank east of the depot, making an
embankment along the present road
way leading to the bottom. There is
quite a large force engaged upon the
work and this force will be increased
as soon as the work of concreting is
commenced. The excavation will be
done by teams just as soon as it is low
enough to permit driving through the
opening. The dirt will then be hauled
out into the river bottom and dumped
upon the new road which wili be built
out into the bar. As soon as the work
of excavation is completed the com
pany will commence the extension of
their platform to the south and up to
the edge of the subway which in itself
will be a big improvement. The job
when completed will be one of the best
improvements ever made in the city.

F. E. TOMS IN
Preacher Arrested For Bigamy at
We have no idea that the nime of
Rev. F. E. Toms, who at one time was
a pastor in charge of the M. E. church
at this place has been forgotten he is
well known; it wili be remembered that
he resigned from this charge to go to
Graf and enter the mercantile business,
and after a very short career was
closed out by his creditors, but not un
til he had dissipated his father-in-law's
From Graf he went some place out
west and in a short time turned up as a
Baptist preacher, and for a year or two
he was in evangelistic work in different
parts of the country.
The next we hear of him he is at
Larned and under arrest for the charge
enumerated above. It seems that he
left his first wife, and he claims he
procured a divorce in Colorado, and
that he later married a widow many
years older than himself, but with
money. The next we hear from the
Rev. (?) gentleman he will probably
be doing evangelistic work in the Kan
sas penitentiary. There is one good
thing about this item of news it will
surprise no one they expected it. He
was a very ."foxy" gentleman and was
engaged to no less than a dozen girls
before he came to this place. Nehaw

The Rummage Sale by the Ladies of

the interesting events of the. year. An
opportunity for you to get rid of those
things for which you have no use and

for them appreciate them more and are
glad to do so.
WILL GIVE A
T. J. Sokol Society Plans Big Dance
and Turning Exhibition for Nov. 21.
One of the big social events of the
season will be the dance announced for
Saturday night, Nov. 21, by the T. J.
Sokol society at their fine hall on West
Pearl street. In addition to a dance
which will be as fine as any ever given
in this well known hall, there will be a
program given which the society in
tends to make a hummer. The exact
details of it will be announced later.
Among the big features will be a turn
ing exhibition by the members of the
society which they warrant will be as
fine as any ever given in the city. The
local class of Bohemian turners have
been steadily practicing and includes
some good athletes. This feature alone
will repay a visit to the hall. But when
the full program is announced it will be
found that the members of this society
have outdone themselves in their efforts
to make the occasion a gala one. The
music for the dancing will be of the
usual high order which distinguishes
such occasions while the reputation of
the hall for beine the scene of very en
joyable gatherings will be more than
sustained. This big occasion will be on
Nov. 21, Saturday, night at the T. J.
