ColuEbut Dramatic Society.
Tbrr rroie a Biff Sncctss In their First Effort.
On last Friday night the largest
audience that has ever greeted any
class of entertainment in this city,
crowded the Opera House to wit
ness the first performance of the
Columbus Dramatic Society. The
play chosen for the occasion was no
simple comedy production, design
ed for amateurs, but a real drama by
J. S. Jones, first produced nt the
Natioual Theatre, Boston, in 1839,
and was quite popular both in this
country and England, the well
known comedian, John E. Owens
making the character of "Solon
Shingle" one of his specialties. In
order that those of our readers who
did not have the pleasure of attend
ing the entertainment, may be able
to better judge of tho capacity of
our home taleut for handling the
drama, we will give a brief synopsis
of the plot of the play, and append
the cast of characters as they appear
ed on the bills, with the noticeable
features in each character.
Scene 1, act 1, opens in Boston iu
the counting-room of Hugh Wins
low, a merchant, who has in his
employ, as clerk, Chas. Otis, a young
man who is the main dependence of
a widowed mother and an only
sister. Wiu6low attempts to bribe
young Otis to perjure himself that
he may cover his own tracks in
fraud; fails, discharges him, and
then attempts to accomplish his ruin
through the instrumentality of a
willing -ool he finds in JohiiEllsley
another young man iu his employ.
This young man who can be bribed
to almost any act of meanness, cou
trives by the basest kind of decep
tion to make his companion and
friend appear a petty thief, and he
is arrested and thrown into jail. In
this diabolical work Winslow is
actuated by a motive of revenge and
to prevent Charles s testimony from
convicting him of forgery. From
the accomplishment of his design,
ho is prevented by Robert Howard,
the People's Lawyer, who, disguis
ed as a mechanic, visits Winslow on
business, witnesses the scene iu the
counting-room, when Charles is dis
charged, becomes interested iu him,
and also in his sister, appears in the
court room at the trial iu his true
character, succeeds iu clearing Chas.
iu causing the arrest of Winslow for
forgery, and iu tho happy denou
mciit marries the woman he has
won by his noble acts while disguis
ed as a common mechanic.
THE CAST OK CHAKACTRUS.
Jiobert Howard, the People's Law
yer a talented' youug lawyer, pos
sessed of both moral and physical
courage, pleading always in the
cause of right and justice, was well
rendered by Mr. Em. J. Potls.
Hugh Winslow, a merchant avar
icious, cunning, revengeful and dis
honest, will hesitate at no means to
accomplish an object, except blood
shed, from which ho is deterred
through cowardice. This character
in the play was well taken by Mr.
J. W. Martin.
Solon Shingle, a country Teamster
a real yaukee.character, whoso in
separable companion is his whip,
which appears with him aliko upon
the street and iu tho parlor, and is
an excessive chewer of tobacco. He
is ''down to" Boston on business,
the nature of which is not made
very clear, but consists chiefly in
getting himself into all maimer of
ridiculous scrapes, and, through his
ignorance of city ways, aud sights,
iu committing innumerable laugha
ble blunders. This character is the
life of the play, aud it fell to tho lot
of Mr. Sam. Hunt to distinguish
himself iu it. Those who have wit
nessed the part played by noted
actors say that his rendition was
original and good.
Charles Otis, Winston's Clerk
considers "A lie is a lie disguise it
as you may." cannot be corrupted by
bribery. Mr. G. W. Phillips enter
ed into tuc scutimcnt of tho char
acter, and in his indignant rejection
of the overtures of the villiatt "Win
slow to become dishonest, and in
the display of righteous wrath at his
subsequent persecutions, did ex
John Ellsley in Winslow's employ
a weak young spendthrift, devoid
of principle, whose extravagances
led him into all kinds of fraud upon
his employer and others with whom
he is connected a ready tool in tho
bauds of "Winslow in forwarding
his schemes. To Mr. Geo. Fairchild
was alloted this character, who
acted his part well, especially so in
his show of emotion and the re
morse of a troubled conscience,
during the manly plea of Robort
Howard, for his (Ellsley's) young
friend whoso ruin would be accom
plished by his perjury and whose
confession finally cleared him.
Tripper, an Attorney at Law
self confident, shrewd iu his profes
sion, who works for money and to
win his case, regardless of justice;
has the prorecution of young Otis.
Mr. W. T. Rausdell in this character
did very well.
Timid, a Lawyer lacks nerve to
assert and maintain his rights against
bis legal adversary. Mr. B. J. Briggs
iu this character also did very well.
Jfrs. Otis, viother of Charles the
high-minded, educated, and refined
woman, sees guilt apparently prov
en upon her only son, but with the
knowledge that her duty as a moth
er has been faithfully performed
and that her precepts have been
firmly engraved in the character of
her boy, accepts his emphatic avow
al, "Mother, I am not guilty'" with
tho answer, "I believe you." Miss
Virgic Shannon acted this part
Grace, her Daughter by Miss
Flora M. Jamicson iu the role of the
loving daughter and sister, who con-
sincrs poverty no disgrace, ana is
proud of strong-minded, honest
brother, was a complete success.
The remainder of the cast, appear
ing in tho court scene, all of whom
acquitted themselves with credit
were as follows:
Thompson, a Policeman, Mr. H. P.
Bower; John, a Porter and Clerk of
the Court, Mr. R. S. Clark ; Judge
of the Court, -Mr. John Schram;
Foreman of the Jury, Mr. "W. H.
Mr. Em. J. Potts, in his character
songs was enthusiastically received
by the audience as were the panto
mime and tableaux exercises.
Criticism could be offered in many
instances, which, no doubt, was ap
parent to the actors themselves, but
it being the first appearance before
a public for the majority of them,
we forbear making any.
To Mr. Em. J. Potts falls the
credit of the management, who with
all concerned, may well feel flatter
ed with the success of their first
On Monday evening, this theatri
cal troupe, whichhas justly became
a great favorite in tho State, pre
sented to a delighted audience, "St.
Patrick's Eve" and "The Silent
"Woman." "Wo havo not 6paco for
an extended review of the plaj', but
must content ourself with saying
that, it represents mainly, a brief
courtship by two Irish lovers, one
poor, Terrence O'Moore, the other
rich, Bernard Cavanaugb, of a love-
ly,Iively Irish maiden Kathleen, with
proposals of marriage from each.
A diamond ring and a rich robe
given to tho young girl by Lord
Cavanaugh's sister, seem to
turn her head towards being a
"lady," while her heart clings to
"Teddy." Tho remaindor of the
play, up to the final scene is the
wedded life of Kathleen and Cavan
augh, where she, as lady, has a fine
mansion, a handsome wardrobe,
plenty of servants, but is poor and
miserable at heart, with only abuse
and neglect from her husband, uutil
finally he hires a villain to put her
out of existence, and when the act is
about to be accomplished, "Teddy"
appears on the scene, kills every
body but Kathleen, but is himself
arrested for murder, and is about to
be hanged, when Kathleen wakens
from her sleep and is frantically
joyful to find it all a horrid dream.
With paroxysms of delight she ac
cepts Teddy, and the wedding dance,
a very uuiquc affair, closes the play.
All the parts were very well sus
tained, and the play throughout
was heartily applauded, but Carrie
Plunkctt as "Kathleen," "Will
O'Kecfc, as Terrence and J. S.
Overton as "Cavanaugb," deserve
high praise for "holding the mirror
up to nature.''
To-night, (Wednesday,) will be
presented "The Celebrated Case,"
and wo recommend all lovers of
"the mimic world" to be present.
On Friday last wo spent an
hour at Jackson, six miles west of
this city. Tho trade of Jackson is
increasing. The dealers iu grain
aro John Strasscr, and L. Kuhne,
and James Outwater, iu connection
with Mr. Kuhne. Mr. Kuhne is
also proprietor of an excellent dry
goods store in the place. Chris
Mahler keeps a hotel, aud has re
cently put up a flue barn on his lot.
Wc cat dinner at John Strasscr's
and a better one no man need want,
or ought to have. The farms be
tween this and Jackson are all ex
cellent, aud some of them show
first-class dwellings, with good
barns and groves of trees. Mr.
John Ernst, brother of Jacob's, told
us that his grove of ten acres was
ton years old, and that he now has
more fire wood fro.n it than he
uses; Mr. Keller's place, Mr. Beau's,
also the North's, Chas. Morse's, Ar
nold's and Bni-num's show thrift,
comfort, and business enterprise on
the part of the proprietors. At
Jackson we met John Eisenmann,
John Graham and Mr. Martz who
were in the town on business. Mr.
Graham had a splendid sample of
wheat. "We may sav. in naasiuir.
that nil the wheat we 6aw in the
warehouses of Kuhne and Strasser
was of good quality. Ed. Newman
teaches the public school there, and
gives excellent satisfaction.
One would think by looking
over the local page of our esteemed
contemporary that the individual
who had charge of it was able to see
clearly but one personage in the
world that deserved particular and
marked attention, that personage
being the humble individual whom
our contemporary calls "Moses,"
otherwise known as the editor of
the Columbus Journal. If it af
fords auy sort of satisfaction to F.
Peculiar Burgess, the professedly
Republican sub-editor of our Demo
cratic contemporary, wc certainly
can not object, because we are of
the most accommodatingdisposition
in tho world, and take a peculiar
and nameless delight in seeing our
beloved friends and fellow citizens
enjoy themselves. And now, frank
ly, we advise our peculiar friend to
endeavor to begin to cultivate alike

definite has reached us. Columbus
is not yet counted will probably
give Ryan 40 majority, Henry up
wards of 100, Loveland about the
Irish Shell creek is reported 22
majority for Crites.
Butler gives Gerhold a majority
and Ryan a majority of five. Much
interest was manifested in the elec
tion, but a good deal of scratching
was done. Columbus cast 375 votes,
and there are about forty straight
tickets on each side.
Mr. Charles Plunkctt tells us
that Columbus asks a higher license
for entertainments than any other
place he knows of in Nebraska.
While the city of Philadelphia
charges ten dollars a year, Colum
bus charges five dollars for each
entertainment. Crete, in this State,
collects a license of fifteen dollars
a year from the proprietor of their
Opera House, which is all the tax
laid upon traveling entertainments.
Mr. Plunkctt spoke of this matter
in no complaining spirit, however
high he may regard it.
The old American House is in
position at the new site, corner of
Olive street and Pacific Avenue, one
square south of Henry's grocery.
A commodious addition is be put
on the rear, and the whole fitted up
in good style,, and occupied as a
hotel, which kind of property seems
to be very valuable in Columbus.
The Rev. Robert Christison ex
pects to deliver a series of lectures
on religious subjects in a few weeks,

The scries of nine lectures is very

heard them, and our citizens may
hold themselves in readiness for the
enjoyment of a rare treat.
A Commendable Offer.
Mr. Editor : Having, by a kind
Providence, been preserved against
loss by fire, though in im'miuent
danger, I wish to express my grati
tude, and at the same time induce
others to help, and therefore I will
make the following offer: I will
pay to the order of our honorable
board of county commissioners $25
in produce for the relief of tfic suff
erers by fire" in our county provided
thirty-nine others will do the same.

The People Waint Proof.
There is uo medicine prescribed
by physicians, or sold by Druggists,
that carries such evidence of its suc
cess and superior virtue as Bos
ciiee's German Syrup for severe
Coughs, Colds settled on the breast,
Consumption, or any disease of the
Throat and Lungs. A proof of that
fact is that any person nfllictcd,
can get a Sample Bottle for 10 cents
and try its superior effect before
buying the regular size at 75 cents.
It has lately been introduced iu this
country from Germany, and its
wonderful cures are astonishing
everyone that uses it. Three doses
will relieve any case. Try it. Sold
