they have resided since that time.

ARRIVES FROM BOHEMIA
From Monday's Dally.
This morning Miss Theresa Sedlak
arrived in this city to make her
home here with her brothers and sis
ters, completing a trip from the old
home in Bohemia that has covered
the past six weeks. It has long been
the desire of the members of the
family here to have their sisters with
them and matters were arranged for
their leaving the old country and
coming here to live and the first of
the two sisters arrived here today.
The second sister, Eleanor Sedlak. is
enroute now from Europe and her ar
rival is expected any time now. The
authorities at Cherbrough, France,
from which they sailed would not
permit both to leave at the same time
and so they sailed on separate ves
sels. It is needless to say the ar
rival of the sister has brought much
pleasure to the family. Miss Sedlak
is a sister of Joseph Sedlak. Jr., Mike
and James Sedlack and Mrs. Fred
Duda of this city.

TOR DIES AT A
CHARLES W. SHERMAN, FOUND
ER OF THE JOURNAL, IS
BURIED IN WEST.
A figure well known in the news
paper life of Nebraska in the eigh
ties and nineties has vanished from
the, scene of earthly activities in
the death at Los Angeles. California,
on Thursday, of Charles W. Sher
man, who for more than sixty years
has been a follower of the profession
Mr. Sherman was the founder of
the Plattsmouth Journal in 1881 and
conducted this paper during the per
iods when partisan issues ran high
and the journalistic wars were mark
ed with bitterness and venom be
tween the rival p-ipers on political
issues of the day and through this
rtormy period Mr. Sherman was al
ways valiant in his battles for the
cause of democracy even though he
represented a cause that was over
whelmed in the state at that time
and he had the satisfaction of seeing
his party and principles many times
victorious in the later years.
Charles W. Sherman was born in
the village of New Castle. Ohio, on
June 9. 1S41. and was a descendent
of distinguished American ancestry,
his family being descendeu from
Roger Sherman of Connecticut, one
of the signers of the declaration of
independence, and a number of the
other members of the family were in
service in the war of independence.
Senator John Sherman of Ohio and
General William T. Sherman were
also members of this family, although
of another branch.
Young Sherman attended the dis
trict school during his boyhood and
at the age of sixteen years started
westward in the year 1S57, and join
ed an older brother who had settled
in Winneshiek county. Iowa. After
engaging in farming for a time, he
moved to Knoxville, Marion county,
where h.e assisted in lumber cutting.
In the pring of-lS5S the desire to
wtw the- printing -craft caused Mr.
Sherman to leave his home and trav
el on foot to Council Bluffs, where he
entered the office of the Nonpariel,
serving an apprenticeship until 1860.
when he located in Omaha and en
gaged in his trade on the Republi
can and Herald and in November.
1S60. had the distinction of assisting
in settiug up the first telegraphic
news received and published in the
territory of Nebraska
In 1S61 the subject of our sketch
took a short rest from the printing
business and engaged in freighting
across the plains, stopping at the
trading posts along the way. While
on one of these trips he learned of
the firin gon Fort Sumter by the
southern forces, and he then has
tened back east to Des Moines and
enlisted in Co. K. 3rd Iowa cavalry,
and was at once sent into active ser
vice, participating in several skir
mishes in the southern part of Iowa
and later took part in the battle of
Pea Ridge, Arkansas, aeainst the
troops of General Sterling Price.
Later the regiment participated in
the campaign against Vicksburg and
the invasion of Alabama and Georgia,
and Mr. Sherman served until Au
gust. 1S65. when he was discharged.
In the fall of 1865 Mr. Sherman
resumed the newspaper game and
became associated in the publication
of the Burlington (Iowa) Hawkeye
and later the Burlington Merchant.
He also conducted papers at Quincy.
Illinois and Villisca. Iowa. Iu the
year 1872 he established the Mills
county Journal at Glen wood. Iowa,
which he conducted for ten years
and later in 1881 came to Platts
mouth where the Journal was es
tablished. Mr. Sherman was a member of the
old school of the newspaper craft
and his pride in his work was un
bounded and his study of the prob
lems of the day made him a worthy
foe in the political battles of the
earlier days. He was a great ad
mirer of William Jennings Bryan
and served the last two years of Mr.
Bryan's term in congress, as his pri
vate secretary and in this capacity
came in close touch with the politi
cal issues of the day and on his re
turn in 1894 he assisted in the many
political battles of his leader until
he laid down the editorial pen to
Personally Mr. Sherman was kind
ly and generous to a fault and his
associates of the years past can well
remember his willingness to assist
when it lay in his power, any of his
less fortunate brethren and friends.
