the company and signed by the five
mayors. It is asserted that at the
morning meeting, Mr. Wattle had
said that the company was no longer
requiring men to sign pledges to
keep out of the union, but this is re

The street car company is re
sponsible for every accident that
happens. Through the domineering
spirit of President Wattles of the car
company, the strike is still on and
bids fair to remain so, and people
who have the courage to board the
cars are running a great risk of los
ing their lives or being crippled for
the balance of their days. y

For three weeks the people of Ash
land have been talking of the almost
simultaneous disappearance of Rev.
Howard R. Van Auken, pastor of the
Congregational church here, and Miss
Bertha Bowman, a professional nurse
from Lincoln.. Their departure fol
lowed the interception of a note
written to Miss Bowman by the
preacher which was written with the
evident purpose of appointing a time
and place for a meeting. Before
leaving the city. Van Auken placed
his resignation in the hands of the
church board at its request. He left
his wife and three children, the old
est of whom is 8 years of age and the
youngest an infant, who have since
gone to live at Middleville, Mich.,
with Mrs. Van Auken's father, who
came to Ashland for them.
The deposed and departed min
ister is about 35 years of age, a man
of good appearance and physical
vigor. He is a fine pulpit orator and
was popular with his congregation.
He4iad been here about two years,
coming from Indiana.
Just before Miss Bowman left Ash
land she wrote a note to her Bister
at Fairbury, stating that she was go
ing to Colorado and would stop at
Fairbury on the way. ' She did not
stop, however, and her sister has
neither seen nor heard anything from
her since that time.

No One at Home When Fire Was Bis
coverd and Cause Unknown.
About 10 o'clock this morning the
Are alarm was turned on, the cause
being a Are at the home of J. Mat
sen, who lives in the Fifth ward. Mr.
Matsen had left the house only a
short time before and came down
town, and when Informed that his
house was burning could hardly
credit the truth. Mrs. Matsen Is In
the hospital at Omaha, so that no one
was In the house at the time the
Are started. There was some delay
in getting the alarm turned on, but
the house was so far out that there
was not sufficient bose in town to
take the water to It. The fire com
pany made an effort to get to the
Ore with the hose cart, but when it
was found that the fire was so far
out, the hose carts were abandoned,
and Chief Kobeck and the men hur
ried to the place, thinking they might
render some aid. Water was brought
from a nearby well until the rope
broke. The cellar was all that could
be saved.' The house was a total loss
as well as the furniture. The house
was owned by L..Hlskey, who resides
in Missouri, and It is nol known
whether "It was Insured or not.
Mr. Matsen had about $600 worth
of furniture and $300 Insurance. It
Is not known how the fire started.
It was first seen by Mrs. Thomas,
who Immediately tried to get the
shops, but falling called Mr. Kobeck,
who understood that It was Hrasky's
house on Wlntersteen hill, and there
the hose carts tried to go. When
they had climbed the hill the fire
could be seen still further out. The
hose carts were then left at the
school house and with Walter Scott's
team hurried to the scene of the fire,
The mistake probably made two or
three minutes difference In the time
of arrival, but nothing could have
been done to save the house, as it
was too far gone when the alarm was
Notwithstanding that many Platts
mouth people went to Omaha last
night, the tent was filled with an
attentive audience, which was deep
ly Impressed with Mr. Wllhlte's elo
quent sermon on "Christ the King."
'Why Christ Refused an Earthly
Crown" was the leading question of
the sermon. It Is evident that these
meetings are just reaching their best
work. Ten souls were added to the
church yesterday, which brings the
grand total up to ninety-three addi
tions In less than three weeks. Many
others are almost persuaded to yield
to Christ and the closing days of the
meeting will doubtless be the best.
In some way the word has been
passed out that these meetings will
close on Saturday night of this week.
This is a mistake. The meetings will
close Sunday evening. They should
continue another week, but this will
be Impossible. Next Tueseday even
ing a public reception for all the new
members will be held at the tent.
More definite announcements will be
made later. Five were immersed at
the close of the services last night.

the subject, "The Christian Life ot
