Nebraska Democratic Club to Be Effective Successors of the
Slro.ig Bryan Volunteers.
Following the magnificent success
cf the Bryan Volunteers two years
ego In bringing victory to the Demo-H
cratic party In Nebraska, the advis
ability of a permanent organization
to succeed it has been met by the
formation of the Nebraska Democrat
ic club, permanent organization of
which was begun at the big Demo
cratic dinner at Columbus in June,
and completed at the time of the
Grand Island convention on Tuesday
On that ocrusion, owing to the fact
that a copy of the constitution was
not present, the meeting elected six
vice presidents, one for each con
gressional district, with the under
standing that they, with the presi
dent, constituted the executive com
mittee, instead of electing but one
vice president and six executive com
mitteemen. However, the same pur
pose is served.
' The officers of the club until the
next annual meeting in February are
Judge John Ratterman of Columbus,
president; J. F. Walsh of Humboldt,
First district, vice president; C. W.
McCune of Omaha, Second district,
vice president; George Kelly of Har
tington, Third district, vice presi
dent; N. J. Ludi of Wahoo, Fourth
district, vice president; Dr. F. C. Bab
cock of Hastings, Fifth district, vice
president; George C. Gillan of Lex
ington, Sixth district, vice president;
and Walter Phillips, treasurer.
Realizing .that a large part of the
organization work must be entrust
ed to the secretary, the meeting left
to the president and the treasurer
the selection of a man with time and
ability to take that position.
It will be noted by the constitution
and by-laws that any elector of the
state of Nebraska, who pledges him
self to support the principles and can
didates of the Democratic party, may
Bold Burglary.
Last night while Byron Golding,
proprietor of the variety store, was
slumbering peacefully In his couch,
some criminal with no fear of the
law burglarized his store before' his
eyes. The crime was first noted early
this morning. When Mr. Goldlng's
mother came down she noticed that
the window In the rear of the store
was up and had a stick of wood
holding it in position. She imme
diately called her son and gave the
alarm. Mr. Golding came upon the
scene, and sized up the situation very
rapidly. He found on examination of
the window that a light had been
broken In and the buglar had reach
ed in, pulled the stop back and rals

Widow and Heirs of the Late j
William Renner $6,000
Yesterday there was filed in the
district court the most Important suit
which has been commenced in that
court for some time. The title of
the case is William T. Richardson,
administrator of the estate of the late
William Renner, against the C. B. &
Q. Ry., and claims the sum of $25,
000 damage for the loss of the life of
William Renner.
A settlement of the suit was af
fected today and the administrator
permitted judgment to be rendered
for the sum of $6,000, which the
parties interested consented to rather
than go through years of litigation.
Those Interested in the settlement
were the administrator for the widow
and C. H. Merger, guardian for the
two little boys who were left or
phans by the sad accident.
The accident which at the time
cast gloom over the city, occurred on
the morning of May 3rd, when the
deceased, who was a Burlington en
gineer, dismounted from his engine
in the Pacific Junction yards and
went under it to repair or replace a
brake beam, which he had noticed out
of order only a moment before. While
under the engine a loaded car was
kicked in on the track at the rear of
his train and the impact was so great
that the train and engine were forced
forward several feet, running the
wheels of the ponderous machine and
its tons of weight over the leg of
the unfortunate man. As stated in
the Journal at the time, Mr. Renner
was hurreid to Plattsmouth and while
yet In an unconclous condition was
taken to the hospital at Omaha where
all that surgical skill could do was
done to save the life of the injured
engineer, and although he rallied
from the first shock, he did not long
survive and passed away at 11 o'clock
the same evening.
The deceased left the wife and two
orphan boys well provided for. There
is $1,500 Insurance, divided equally
with the widow and heirs; $1,800 in
the Burlington Relief, of which all
goes to the widow, besides the $6,
000 paid by the Burlington company,
divided equally between the two lit
tle boys and the widow.
C. H. Herger bas been appointed
guardian for the two children, while
Mr. W. T. Richardson was appointed
by the county court as administra
tor of the estate. Matthew Gering
was employed by the administrator
to bring action against the company
and before departing for Europe, Mr.
Gering had prepared all necessary pa
pers to be filed in the case and, al
though he has not yet returned, the
suit was commenced in his absence
and has reached a satisfactory end'
Ing. The course of the admlnistra
tor and guardian is no doubt a wise
one. as much time and nervous en
ergy will be saved.
Loses Valuable Horse.
M. L. Frederich, county coinmlS'
sloner. was seen on the street this
morning smoking a pipe Instead of
the customary cigar and when interro
gated as to this sudden streak of
rigid economy, Mr. Frederich stated
that he, yesterday, sustained the loss
of his favorite driving horse which
had been a source of comfort to him
for the past twenty-four yearsy That
tne loss would nave 10 do mane goou
some- way anu tne nrst ming ne
thought of was to cut the expensive
clears and take to the pipe. He
prized the animal very highly and
some years ago spent money on the
horse's teeth, having the dentist tlx
them so the horse could take his
feed with comfort.' The loss will be
quite keenly felt by Commissioner
Frederich and his friends feel sorry
for him.

Exeotive Council Counts Funds

Members of the executive council
of the Woodmen of the World felt
highly wealthy all day Friday. he
council visited the vaults of the First
National bank to count up and check
over securities kept on deposit there,
says the Omana Bee.
The Woodmen have $11,000,000
worth of bonds in the vaulets of the
First National, 20 per cent of which
is in government bonds and the rest
in state, county and municipal se-1
curlties of the same sort. I
The executive council will remain
in session until Monday, but is not
likely to take any action with respect
to the new building. Negotiations
with the Milton Rogers company are
still going on, but no particular pros
pect of an agreement has been reach
ed with respect to cancellation of the
It is unlikely that any building
contract will be let for some months,
but some company may be given a
contract to wreck the building now
occupied by the Union Outfitting com
pany before October 1, when the Un
ion company vacates.
Between now and January 1 pos
session of the whole corner may be
secured by the Woodmen, and in that
event the contract for the whole
building will be let as a whole. If
not, then the plan announced some
time ago will be adhered to and a
building put up on the east part of
the Woodmen purchase.
Agreements which the Woodmen
have made call for work of construc
tion to begin January 1 and work
of demolition by October 1. So the
fraternal organization has yet con
siderable time to dicker with the leas
ees of the west part of their real es
tate purchase.
Change ill LI m wood Bunk.
A deal was closed last Saturday
whereby Edwin Jeary, president of
the First National bank of this city,
disposed of his interests in the bank
to W. S. Waters. W. S. Waters was
duly elected president of the bank,
while Floyd L. Wooleott as vice pres
ident and Edward J. Jeary as cashier
will remain with the bank. The
Leader-Echo Is assured that the same
conservative policy that has charac
terized this bank in the past will be
maintained in the future and no ef
forts will be spared to servo the pub
lic In the most efficient way possi
ble, consistent with conservative
banking. Mr. Waters was formerly
connected with the American Ex
change bank as It's cashier for elev
en years, and consequently needs no
extended introduction. It Is the In
tention of Mr. Waters to movo his
family to Elmwood Just as soon as
he can arrange for a suitable home
and he Is looking around now with
that end in view.
Mr. Jeary being relieved from the
responsibilities of the bank, will de
voto bis attention to his private In
terests. ,In the absence of tho retired
president we will feel tho loss of a
very energetic and capable man, and
one who has done much to enhance
ti e moral and Intellectual standing
of the community. The Leader-Echo
congratulates the new management
They're the greatest suit bargains
of the bank and bespeak for it the
hearty support of the public. Leader-Echo.
Mad l ino lish Supper.
Win Streignt came In from Cedar
Creek last evening with an air of
fullness about him but able to tell
a good fish story. The fishing at the
pond was not as good yesterday as
on some occasions yet the Rock Bass
bit in sufficient numbers so that 45
of their number went into the frying
pan last evening prior to the sumptu
ous repast served to the party going
up from Plattsmouth yesterday
morning. Ten covers were laid and
among those surrounding the picnic
table spread on the grass were Mr.
and Mrs. J. W. Strelght and daugh
ter, Mr. and Gade, Mr. Glenn, Pollock
Parmele and others. Forty of the
finny tribe were devoured by the
lucky fishermen and women, and to
say they enjoyed the supper Is putting
It mildly. The luck of the different
members of the party varied much.
Mrs. H. A. Schneider with hor hook
baited with frog landed a large black
bass, which proved to bo the best of
the days catch. Mr. Applegate wai
unfortunate in breaking his rod and
bass. From the way the rod snapped
off It was thought that the fish
taking Mr. Applegate's hook was of
unusual size. The weather was ideal
and the trip was greatly enjoyed by
all of the party.
In County Court.
The William AlLIn guardianship
matter took n new whirl day before
yesterday when Hon. W. B. Banning
sent in his resignation as guardian.
There Is eighty acres of land and the
rents and profits of the same which
under the will of William Albln's
father, has been entailed for the use
of William. There has been much
grief to the numerous men who have
acted as guardian from time to time
for the past fifteen years. Work the
eighty as economically as they may,
it will not furnish sufficient funds to
clothe and board the ward. Judge
Beeson has not yet accepted the res
Ignition of Mr. Banning, but as soon
as some brave man can be found who
will take the duties and give the
required bond, no doubt the matter
will be done as Mr. Banning wishes.
Adjust Loss.
Mr. O. E. Morse of Lincoln, special
agent for the Burlington was In the
city over night, departing for his
home this morning. Mr. Morse had
been to Louisville where a slight ac
cident had occurred In the yards and
the corner of a car loaded with shell
ed corn had been knocked off and
something like 200 bushels of grain
Bplllcd on the right of way. Some
of the Bettlers had come In from their
claims, backed their wagons up to the
pile of corn and proceeded to load
It out. When they were made to un
derstand that the owner still wanted
the corn they came down with the
price. The matter was explained by
saying that they had no idea any one
wanted the grain after It had been
on tho damp ground a few hours.
