Passed Away at the Advanced Age of
&6 Years, After Residence of
Sixty Years in Cass County.
Last evening at his home in Ne
hawka where for more than sixty
years he has made his home, Hon.
Isaac Pollard, one of the early resi
dents of the county and one of the
men who has had a great part in the
development of the state, passed away
as the immediate result of an attack
f acute indigestion from which he
lias been suffering for the past wreek
and which added to the other compli
cations due to his advanced years
proved too great a strain and resulted
in the death of this worthy man. Mr,
Pollard for the past ten years has

;-;.kinL: the trip to the coast by way
the Isthumas of Panama, but on
i riving there found the opportunities
n.t as flattering as they hoped for
and returned to the Green Mountain
.-tate. In 185" Mr. Hollard and Mr.
Sheldon again came west to take up a
lmme in Kansas but on arriving at
the village of Omaha decided to lo
cate in Nebraska and accordingly se
lected a homestead in southern Cass
o.unty where they have since made
their homes and where they have made
the land to blossom with the fruits
of the earth.
One f the greatest orchards in the
state of Nebraska was planted by Mr.
Pollard at his Nehawka farm and dur
ing his lifetime he has taken a keen
interest in the hortifultural life of
tiie state and his contributions has
given the state a great ranking among
the other commonwealths of the na-
tion in this line. v
Never a seeker after ofiice, Mr. Pol
lard repeatedly refused to be a can
didate for the public service and aside
from several terms as county clerk in
early days did not take any part in
political life although always deeply
interested in the advancement of his
community and state.
Surviving the loss of this good man
here are three daughters and two
sons. Mrs. Harry Wills and Mrs. Lot
tie Shotwell, of Seattle, Wash.; Mrs.
A. J. Hiiborn, Long Beach, California,
former congressman E. M. Pollard, of
Nehawka and Raymond C. Pollard,
of Nehawka.
Th'j paving of Washington avenue
i rapidly drawing to a close as the
last few days has allowed the Monarch
Engineering company to go -ahead
with the work in very rapid order.
The company took advantage of the
go I weather yesterday to push the
work of laying the brick and a great
ileal was accomplished during this
time. It is thought that it will be
possible to complete the work by
Wednesday night, with all the brick
laid from Seventh street to the Mis
souii Pacific right-of-way.
The danc given Saturday evening
by the Cosmopolitan club at Coates'
ball was one of the most successful
that has been given for some time
and a very large crowd was in at
tendance at the gathering. In the
drawing of the fine turkey given as a
special feature of the affair, Dan
Cooney was the successful winner
with No. 07, and was accordingly giv
en the bird that will furnish an ex
cellent Thanksgiving meal.
Mrs. Joseph Droege, who has been
at the bedside of her husband at the
hospital in Lincoln for the past tsvo
weeks, has returned to her home in
this city to look after her work with
the Woodmen Circle, and will now be
r.ble to take up the work of collecting
for the order as well as keeping up
the membership. Mr. Droege, wno
was operated on about a. week or ten
days ago is showing the most marked
improvements and this has greatly en
couraged the members of the family
and friends in the hope that he may
be able in a very short time to re
turn to his home in this city restored
to health. Mr. Droege has not been
in good health for the past year and
it was deemed necessary to perform
the operation in order that he might
be able to recover his health and re
sume his activities.

Saturday's assault, when his men
dominated the situation, tho telegraph
and lailway lines were not revered.
On the streets of Juarez rumors
were circulated that the ViUi:-tas ha 1
occupied City and that
Trevino had boon routed, but United
States department agent:" stated there
was little foundation for these rumors.
The presence of 200 Viilistar, com
manded by Sylve.der Quevedo, eight
een miles south of the American bor
der on the Juarez-Chihuahun City
railway line caused General Gonzales
commander at Juarez, to order one
hundred Carranzista troops out to
guard the bridge a few m:l3s outside
Juarez. Attempt:; to get supplies cf
ammunition to General Trevino were

Late in the f.y a United States gov
ernment official, transmitting reports
to Washington, said:
"Until 10 o'clock today, General Tre
vino had been able to repel every as
sault of the bandits upon Chihuahua
City. In cnly'a few instances had the
bandits been able to get any distance
into the ctiy. Each time they were
foiced out. But we have authentic
information that Villa had succeeded
in penetrating into a portion of the
town and had been holding it for

Whether he has been able to maintain
his ground is a ques tion."
Other officials of five departments
obtaining reports for the United
States government believed that the
ammunition supply of the defenders
began to dwindle in the morning. Un
til Saturday, they s-dd, Villa's move
ments indicated that he had surround
ed the city and his only effort was to
force the Carranzista -ftcrrison to ex
pend as much ammunition as possible
before starting the real assault.
Unusual precautions were observed
in Juarez by General Gonzales, after
obtaining reports of the nearness of
Quevedo's band of Villistas, and an
other small body of bandits twenty
five miles southeast.
Water Supply Cut.
Villa has cut off the entire water
supply to Chihuahua City by severing
the acqueduct leading to the capital,
according to a report .obtained by
United States department agents here.
The acqueduct conveys the water
supply of the city from a reservoir
several miles away. Such action-would
cause suffering among the civilian
population immediately, men familiar
with the situation declared.

This activity on the part of city of
