The Journal some time ago noted
the fact that Prof. O. P. Stewart,
principal of the schools at Sterling,
Neb., had created some sensation on
a Rock Island train which was pass
ing through Murdock, by attempting
to kidnap his three children from
his wife's sister at that place. The
tSewart's were separated and the
mother had the custody of the chil
dren. Now Stewart is once more af
ter the children, having commenced
an action of habeas corpus before the
Hstrict court at Tecumseh, against
Jacob Goehry, Sr., his father-in-law
and Mrs. Elsie tSewart, his wife, to
obtain possession of the children. The
Children are Fay, aged 7 years, Vir
ginia, aged 5 years and John T., aged
" years. The writ was made re
turnable into district court at Pawnee
city this morning. rn accordance
with its provisions the sheriff of Paw
nee county served it upon the de
fendants and the matter will probably
l)e bitterly fought out.

Glad to Meet Him. '
J. M. Gates of Fort Crook, Neb.,
is in the city today looking after
me business matters. Mr. Gatea is
a representative In the legislature
om Sarpy county, having been a
great friend and companion of Repre
sentative M. A. Bates of this city, the
Journal editor. The two gentlemen
held an interesting meeting this
naorning and exchanged many de
lightful reminlscenses of their term
in me legislature. Air. Gates was
the author of the bill to re-establish
saloons at Fort Crook, which Gover-
or Shafienberger vetoed, and he still
believes the measure to have been a
proper one. He is a man who does
ot drink himself yet he states that
the open saloon at Fort Crook Is far
preferable to the "blind pig," which
has been operating there and which Is
insuperable from a soldiers post. Mr.
Gates returned to his home this af
ternoon on the M. P. train.

Applies to all Towns.
The best way to build up a town is
to stand by every man In the place
who does right. Whenever a man Is
doing well do not tear him downk
All residents should be partners, not,
opponents. In all livllhoods the more
business your rival does the more
you will do. Every business man who
treats his customers honestly, court
eously and fairly will get his share,
and the more business that can be
secured by united efforts the better
it will be for all. When a town ceases
to grow it begins to die, and the more
the people try to kill each other's
business in their own town the more
readily will utter ruin come to all.
Stand together for the advancement
of every citizen. If a man shows abil
ity to prosper don't pull him back
through jealousy or weight him down
through cold indifference. Nark a
