were held for appearance at this
term of the district court in the sum
of 500 each which they were unable
to give and in default of which they
were remanded to Jnil. The third
one of the trio Joseph Riley, was
held as a witness against the other
two In the sum of $100 which he
was unable to give and in conse

there until their cases are disposed
of. The men are churged with hav
ing taken a coat, somo tools and
some food from the car. It appeared
from the testimony at the prellmin
ary that Riley had nothing to do
with the breaking and entering but
thnt he was present when it was
done. The men do not appear to be
bad but seem to have taken up
tramping with the usual results o
such occupation. It Is believed they
will enter a plea of guilty and take
their punishment at the present ses

She Jumps From Buggy to Try
to Save ; Her Children and
Breaks Her Neck.
Last Saturday afternoon after the
Journal had gone to preES, we re
ceived the following Bppcial from
'A telegram was received by Peter
Campbell Friday night, informing
him of the accidental death of his
brother's wife, Mrs. George Camp
bell in Nance county, Nebraska. Mrs.
Campbell was well known in Cass
county, having spent the greater
part of - her life here, until she re
moved to Nance county eight years
ago. one was the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Hendricks, who lived near
Nebraska City. The telegram did
not give any particulars as to how
the distrsslng accident occurred.
George Campbell, the bereaved hus
band, Is a brother of John, Peter
nd Joe Campbell, who live east of
Murray. Several of the family de
parted on the first train to be pres
ent at the funeral which occurred
Sunday afternoon." The Journal
will give further particulars as soon
as they can possibly be obtained.

we find the following particulars of
the death of Mrs. Campbell in a

Plenty of Water Now.
The water company is once more
able to furnish water for all con

once more in operation, assuring a
full supply. Supt. Weber has made
herculean efforts to get the plant in

succeeded in accomplishing the task.
The new boiler will not be ready
for service for some' ten days as It
will take that length of time for the
brickwork and masonary to set and
become permanent. When this Is
done, there will be no more trouble
regarding water and the people will
find their supply plentiful and good.
As it is the old boiler will be cap

The Approaching Cold Weather
Causes the M. P. to Hustle.
The approaching cold weather has
warned the Missouri Pacific that If
they want to get their heavy steel
in place before it gets here they will
have to hustle and they have put on
another fcteel gang. The new gang
will work south from this place to
a connection with . the first gang
working north of Murray, starting
in this morning, laying steel from
the viaduct south of the depot here.
The work Is to be pushed with all
possible speed now and every effort
made to get the new eighty-five
pound rail laid to the Union Pacific
connection at Gilmore by the end of
the month. The steel gang are not
putting in new ties under the .rail,
that work being done by another
gang which is following up the gang
at Murray. The steel is being laid
and spiked to enough ties to hold it
in place until the tie laying gang
can reach it when the old ties are
changed out and the track leveled
and surfaced. The new rail and ties
will all be In track up to and across
the Platte river before work on the
new steel bridge can have proceed-
d far. In fact, it is the intention
to proceed with the steel laying re
gardless of the bridging. By the
end of the week the heavy steel
ought to be down from Plattsmouth
to Kansas City, although It is im
possible to get the track lined and
surfaced in that time. However.
with the passing of the tie gang to
the north there will be good track
completed all the way from Kansas
City to this city, something which
the traveling public will greatly ap
preciate. Death of an Infant.

Plnttsmouth's Government Building.
At last there seems some tangible
evidence that the new public build
ing which congress a long time ago
provided for this city may eventu
ally be built This morning's Bee
has a special from Washington con
taining a statement hy J. Knox Tay
lor, supervising architect of the
treasury, which is as follows:
"Sketches and plans for the new
$50,000 poBtoffice building at Plattd
mouth will be taken up by chief
draftman and his assistants between
now and the first of the year ao4
we hope to have the specifications
ready to submit to bidders early to
the ensuing year." According to
this there is every prospect that by
next , spring work will be commenced
on the building and that it will ha
pushed to completion without delay.
Mr. Taylor also speaks of Beatrice,
where a $50,000 addition is to be
built to their present postoffice, and
says he expects to advertise for bids
on the work this month. At Colum
bus the plans and specifications are
about three-quarters complete and
they will be advertised early nest
year. The plans for the Fremont
addition are in such shape that they
will likely be advertised by the close
of this year.
