FATHER WALSH HAS FINISHED
HAS BEEN DOING DOUBLE WORK
Many Magnificent Contributions for the
New Omaha Cathedral Resulted
From the Efforts of the Norfolk
Priest Called by Bishop.
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
Father Thomas Walsh of the Church
of the Sacred Heart In Norfolk , after
having spent some months attending
to'hls duties hero simultaneously with
the work of raising funds In Omaha
for the new cathedral there , has re
turned to this city for good , having
finished his work In the Nebraska me
tropolis. Norfolk people are not only
glad of the return of Father Walsh ,
but also take no smalj , degree of priQo
In his accomplishments In Omaha.
While Father Walsh is too modest
to even give an estfmate of the amount
of funds raised by him for the new
Omaha cathedral , yet it Is known from
other sources In Omaha that he did
wonderful work among the people of
that city and many magnificent con
tributions re'aulted from his efforts.
The personal charm and magnetism
of Father Walsh had much to do with
When Bishop Scaiinel was In need
of assistance for raising funds with
which to build the new cathedral , he
selected the Norfolk priest as the
most promising and his selection
proved to be0a wise one. Fo'r months
Father Walsh has attended jointly to
the constant work connected with the
Omaha field and also his regular work
There Is so much work for him In
this part of the state , chowever , that ,
now that he Is home to stay , he llnds
every moment of his time busily taken

A. H. Livingston of Missouri Valley ,
Who Was First Agent In All of

tlTotn Tuesday's Dally. ]
A. II. Livingston of Missouri Valley
Is In the city today greeting old friends
and neighbors. Mr. Livingston is one
of the oldest settlers in this part of
the country , coming here In the late
sixties , lie was in the employ of the
C. and N. W. railroad and was known
as the "pioneer agent" of the road.
Mr. Llvlngstoni had charge of almost
all of the different frontier , stations of
the C. & N. W. when that rend was

He can ( remember very dearly the

IS NEWS TO NORFOLK.
Nothing Definitely Known H ere Re
garding Reported New caRllroad.
Nothing Is known In Norfolk con
cerning the survey which Is reported
from Chicago to he under way be
tween tRls point and Sioux City , for
an extension of the Columbus-Nor
folk branch of the Union Pacific rail
road. Although this Is In line with a
move concerning which mention was
made In these columns a year ago , It
Is Impossible to learn In Norfolk
wliether or not the story that the sur
vey has begun and the road Is to be
pushed , Is true.
Norfolk railroad men , while abso
lutely in the dark aside from the Chicago
cage dispatch concerning the proposed
new line , are Inclined to awnlt more
definite developments than the news
paper report for the reason , they say ,
that many a railroad Is built on paper
which never materializes.
Some argue , too , that If the survey
was going on Norfolk would have
heard something about It before this.
Judge C. F. Eiseley of Norfolk yes
terday officiated at a marriage four
miles west of Wnrnervllle , when John
C. Blcka was married to Miss Luellen
Stnngo. The ceremony took place at
the home of the bride's parents.
