Councilman Lushiiiwky desired
to have the city attorney and
clerk get into touch with the
bond-holders of the city and try
and make arrangements whereby
the city could pay off more than
two of the bonds in a year, as the
fund was in excellent shape to
handle more than two bonds a
year, which would soon reduce
the city's indebtedness.
Councilman Ilichey brought up
(he question of the sewer exten
sion on upper Chicago uvenue,
slating that the bid of Mart Shel
don had been found good and that
the cnunly would give $500 to
ward I he work, and if the city
would contribute $500, lie and
John llauer would pay any ex
cess over this sum to have the
work put through. He stated it
would be necessary tn fix up the
bridge on Marble street, as well
as do some grading near the
Moore place, and it would only
cost about $375 to secure the
sewer for the city. This motion
to accept the bid and start the
work was seconded by Patterson.
Mayor Saltier opposed the
proposition on the ground that
the city would not be benefited by
the sewer to any great extent, as
it was through private property,
and he thought the city should
devole some attention to the
Washington avenue sewer, fixing
one block on each sewer every
year. He also thought the proper
way to do would be to start at the
mouth of the sewer and build out.
There was much discussion of
the matter, participated in by
Councilmen Johnson, Halls! Tom
and Lushinsky, and Hie motion of
Ilichey was defeated by the fol
lowing vole: Yeas, Patterson,
Richey, llallslrom, Vroman; nays,
Slreighl, Lushinsky, Johnson,
Hajeck; passed, Shea. -The mayor
voted no, as the vote was a tie.

One of the busiest places in the

Mrs. Waterman Gave Ex-Governor
Sheldon and Ex-Congressman
Pollard First Instructions.
The Journal ollice acknow
ledges a very pleasant, visit last
Saturday from Mrs. Hella R. Wa
terman of Hay Springs, Neb., ac
companied by her brother, Judge
Hasil S. Ramsey. Mrs. Waterman
isa pioneer settler of Nebraska,
having llrst located at Rock Bluffs
in the spring of 1871, where, for
a number of years, she was en
gaged in school work, assisting
her brother, where she did suc
cessful work. She was for a
number of years engaged in
teaching in Cass county,. Neb.,
the last term being at Nehawka
during the winter of 1875-70. It
was in this school that Mrs. Wa
terman gained the distinction of
being the first public teacher to
whom ex.riovernor Sheldon and
ex-Congressman Pollard went to
school. They were both small
boys at the time. Mrs. Waterman
(then Miss Bella Ramsey), speaks
in the highest terms of the
studious habits of these two boys,
who afterward became prominent
in Nebraska politics.
Mrs. Waterman is the widow of
Dr. John M. Waterman, to 'whom
she was married at Plattsmouth,
Neb., on March 29, 1870. For a
number of years their home was
in Louisville, Neb., where the doc
tor built up an extensive practice
arid was also engaged in I he drug
business at that place. In 1885
I he doctor took up a soldier's
homestead near Hay Springs,
Sheridan county, Nebraska, to
which he moved his family in the
spring of 188(i. Upon this 100
acres the doctor made valuable
improvements and upon which he
and his family resided until the
doctor's death on August 5, 1890.
After the doctor's death and
when the Kinkead homestead law
became effective, Mrs. Waterman
took up a homestead claim under
that act of 480 acres, locating the
same about twenty miles south of
Hay Springs, in Sheridan county,
Nebraska, upon which she, and
her daughter, Miss Hlhel, resided
until she was able to make final
proof and receive her patent from
the government.
While visiting the Journal
ollice Mrs. Waterman met for the
first time in many years James A.
Walker of Murray, whose family
and Mrs. Waterman, forty-two
years ago, formed a friendship at
Old Rock Bluffs that has remain
ed unbroken for so many years.
This is Mrs. Waterman's first
visit, to Cass county for about
fifteen years and she receives a
most cordial greeting from her
old as well as new friends.

This afternoon County Attor

he will visit the different points
of interest along the Pacific coast
before returning home. During1
his absence the duties of the
office will be looked after by Judge
J. K. Douglass, and he will see
that there are on violations of the
law during the absence of our

officially denied the report.

Krom Wednesday's Dallv.
This morning William Barclay
was taken quite violently ill at
his home with severe pains in his
stomach, and it was feared at
first that he was suffering from
an attack of appendicitis, but af
ter an examination by the attend
ing physician it was thought that
the attack was due to gravel
stones and he was taken to his
room and will have to remain
quiet for some time. The patient
was reported as resting a little
more easily this noon and it is
thought he will be all right in a
short time. Mr. Barclay is a very
active man and his enforced quiet
will be very trying on him, but
his friends hope to see him up
and around in a few days.
The fishing party from this city
which descended upon the peace
ful country around Meadow, in
Sarpy county, last Saturday, have
been reached by wireless and re
port one of the times of their
lives. Up to dale Wesley Book
meyer has taken the honors in
fishing, having secured a fine 12
pounder last Sunday, and al
though the fish fought manfully
it was landed after a great deal
of difficulty by Wes, assisted by
Ous Swanson and August Rliein
ackle. The party has been re
inforced by the arrival of Will
Mason, and the task of landing
the big fish will be carried on day
and night and some big catches
are looked for. It is reported one
of the party fell into one of the
ponds near the camp Sunday
evening while fishing, having a
big one on the hook and line that
pulh'd I he fisherman right in af
ter it, but as the water is not
more than a few feet deep he was
extracted without trouble by his
comrades. The party will remain
in camp until next Saturday,
when they will return loaded
down with the trophies of the ex
pedition into the wilds of Sarpy

Yesterday the 'automobile be
longing to J. II. IsMchols, formerly
of Union, but who has for the
past two years been engaged in
the real estate business in Oma
ha, was stolen from in front of
the Brandeis theater building, in
which Mr. Nichols has his ofiices,
and all efforts to locate the ma
chine have failed. The machine
was an Apperson 30 and of dark
color, with the initials "J. B. N."
on the doors of. the car. It is
thought that perhaps the parties
taking the car may have came this
way with the machine, and all
farmers along the main automo
bile roads are warned to look out
for the car. The number of the
machine was 32187 Nebraska, and
any information leading to the
capture of the thieves would be
gratefully received by Mr. Nich
ols! The loss of the machine is
quite heavy, as it was a valuable
car and it is to be hoped the own
er will be able to recover the automobile.
