It Is now rumored that the insati
ate Jay Gould has added the Hanni
bal & St. Joe to his grand railroad
system. The St. Joseph Herald
says there is good authority for the
report that this road has passed into
tho hands of a receiver, aud would
shortly be turned over to the Gould
party. It further states that L. D.
TuthilJ, General Manager of the St.
Joe & Denver road, is in New York,
and will probubly be made Superin
tendent of the Hannibal line.
Lincoln Journal.
Xlie Price or Success.
In noticing the railroad injunction
case the Schuyler Sun makes the
following sensible remarks :
To one fact the people must
sooner or later resign themselves.
That to contend with railroads, even
to the extent of keeping them within
reasonable bounds, eternal vigilance
is tho price of success. Iu the case
now on hand, the present difficulty
will no sooner be disposed of than
another, through the mediumship of
the Union Pacific or its retainers
will present itself, and so on until it
is clearly demonstrated that tho peo
ple are determined and will not be
discouraged by trifles."
Citizens of the south-western
part of the county celebrated the 4th
at Jackson. The buildings of our
patriotic friend John Strasser, where
tho citizens congrogated, were decor
ated with American flags, the
bright, waving emblems of our free
dom and liberties. About half past
1 o'clock the sweet strains of music
were heard iu the large dining room
of tho Strasser House, where Mr.
Kuchne and his lady partner led iu
the merry duuee. The regular ball
was to come off iu tho evening,
when the young folks would obtain
their full share of cujoyment.
PiTTsnuRG, Pa., is perhaps the
blackest town in the United States,
and a very singular and ingenious
plan has been suggested to clean and
wash it up. The washing is to be
done by passing the 6moke from the
manufactories through the spray
caused by paddle-wheels revolving
in a tank of water, holding soda ash
in solution. The tank aud wheels
arc placed in the flue, between the
furnace aud tho chimney, and, the
wheels being made to revolve in tho
direction of the chimney, the draught
is increased. It is claimed that the
smoke, after being thus treated, will
not soil a white haudkerchicf.
I:iil and llnvoc.
The Omaha Jlcrald of Sunday
contains the following paragraph,
which we learn from other sources
is substantially true. We havo not
ascertained the extent of the storm
or of the damage:
Railway mou report that near
Clark's station on the U. P. yester
day they saw the track of a hail
storm which passed over the section
on Friday afternoon. It 6wept a
belt of country from three to four
miles wide, causing terrible havoc.
The crops were literally beaten into
the ground, and the farmers have
not even a sufficient remnant of a
hay crop to pay for attempting to
cut it. It is not known that any
persons were injured. The storm
approached the line of tho railway
from the northwest, nud then turned,
taking a southeastly direction.
The new Democratic paper calls
President Hayes a "hog." Webster
defines this word, as applied to men,
to signify: "a brutal fellow; one
who is mean aud filthy." So far as
the President is concerned he cer
tainly is anything but a "brutal fel
low," and as for being "mean and
filthy," no one who knows anything
of him, or cares for his own reputa
tion for truth-speaking would make
6uch an assertion. While Mr. Hayes
may possibly not be the most gen
erous man in the world (the Demo
crat man may exceed him) he is cer
tainly not "mean," and, placed along
side of tho President, even the
Democrat man might be forced to
confess a point or two in fayor of
Mr. Hayes ou tho score of less or
more "fiitb."t But theu, this is a fair
specimen of that Bourbon democ
racy, which learns nothing and for
gets nothing.
Saint tlivurd8.
Ed. Journal: July 4th, that day
dear to all true lovers of those free
institutions euarantcea to us oy me t
declaration of Independence, was
duly observed by a giand celebra
tion in this community. Promptly
at the appointed time those who had
formed a procession in town moved
off with colors flying, to tho grove
one mile above; arriving there, a
large crowd who had come in' from
other directions, were already eu
joying themselves with swings, cro
quet and other amusements under
the shade of the tall spreadiug elms,
box elders, and cottonwoods. Soon
that vast assemblage rallied around
tho speaker's stand when the exer
cises of the day were opened with
instrumental music by Miss Kate
McFaydeu on the organ, assisted by
Messrs. Davis and Durham on vio
lins followed with prayer by Elder
Wright ; and after the reading of the
Declaration of Independence and
an other piece of music, the
large audience listened with wrapt
attention to a masterly and eloquent
oration by A. 11. Simpson of Co
lumbus, followed by a telling speech
by his partner J. P. Morrison. This
brought dinner, and for the next
hour tho contents of well-filled bas
kets occupied the time and attention
of that happy throng, as they betook
themselves by families and iu groups
under the friendly shade.
Then an entire change from the
general order of things took place :
A motley band of Ku Klux or some
other kind of klux, mounted and on
foot, filed into the grove from the
south. Wo will not attempt to des
cribe them. They closely resembled
a colony of immigrants that might
have been forcibly ejected from tho
infernal regions, but they seemed to
be "perfectably" happy and in their
movements closely resembled the
antics of a herd of mules in a hor
net's nest. A song and a speech
from his Satanic Majesty, their cap
tain, and a high-toned quadrille on
tho speaker's stand wound them up
and they dispersed and returned
whence they came.
About 4 p. in. tho crowd moved
back to town to witness a game of
baso ball, aud horse and foot-racing,
but a shower coming on about that
time, put an end to that. Not so the
dance at the new Hardy House; as
to that event one and all agreed that
it was the grandest affair of tho
season. The supper gotten up under
the supervision of Mrs. J. Rittel and
Mrs. J. O'Donuell, was the very
best, and as the stage is in sight, I
will close by adding that the success
of the day'6 celebration was to a
grcnt extent due to the able manage
ment of our marshal of the day, II.

Pierce, Neb., July 4, '70.
M. K. Turner, Respected Friend :
After leaving Columbus not long
hince in company with the Hon. W.
S. Gccr, a few hours ride brought
us to Madison, and wo found the
heretofore quiet townsmen some
what excited over their R. R. bond
defeat. We partook of some re
freshments and passed along to the
bright and thriving town of Norfolk.
Almost every man we met appeared
to be on the war path, especially
when a Columbus man put in an ap
pearance. As good luck was bound
to come to me, an old friend put iu
an appearance and quieted their ex
cited feelings by informing them
that I was en route for the San tee
Agency to pay a short visit, and that
he thought I hud not used any in
fluence to defeat their purpose,
therefore thoeffusion of wrath was
arrested. Thence to Niobrara, the
northern Nebraska R. R. centre in
the near future. Over night at the
latter place, to the Agency the uext
day, where we met with" a cordial
reception, which stale of things con
tinued until on our return. We
were beyond the range of the musi
cal strains of our parting serenade
by the enthusiastic maidens of the
Dacotahs. From the Agency to
Pierce without much delay, one sav
oring a little of civilization was met
with suspicious feelings which re
sulted in my arrest as a tresspasser.
The residents here in the main arc
a good feeliug people, but a certain
lawless, cowardly, bull-dozing ele
ment is in considerable force, which
will require but a short time to ex
tinguish. I plead guilty, but refused
to pay the fiue, which event brings
me up to the present time.
Yours respectfully,
Wh. B. COFi'lN.
Humphrey Item..
Last Wednesday night this vicin
ity was visited by a slight shower
of rain which was accompanied with
a tremendous wind ; it moved Mr.
Wanzer's frame barn about three
feet eastward, badly racked the sta
ble which was ou the east side of it,
and laid the most of his barn-yard
fence flat on the ground. It racked
tho dwelling house of the Humphrey
post-master, Mr. Mead, badly fright
ening the inmates, but injuring the
house only slightly. It overturned
or unroofed several corn cribs and
other out-houses in the neighbor
hood. We celebrated the "glorious 4th,"
by having a neighborhood pic-nic iu
Charles Roscoe's grove of timber.
Several pieces that were appropriate
for the occasion were rehearsed and
read, and we were also favored with
good singing; and if ever a table
groaned under tho weight of pro
visions, that one did, and a stranger
might havo thought by the quality
of tho victuals, that luxuries were to
be had here in Nebraska, by " the
asking;" iu fact, tho dinner was "fit
for a king." In the afternoon the
6ound of the violin was heard, and
those who wished so to do, joined
in tho merry dance. All seemed
pleased with tho enlertaiumeuts of
the day.

Mr. Editor : The busy time has

ripening fast.
The Bloomingdale stock farm
makes a very fiue appearance right
now. Prof. Heurich is not only a
good doctor and preacher, but makes
a good farmer also; surely, he is

round man. Long may he live to
do good.
Davis, Williams, Thomas and
Lewis are at work, and as far as we
can see, their prospect is fair.
Hugh Edwards has broke 30 acres
on his farm since he bought it of
nugh Hughes, in the spring. Mr.
E. will make a fine show after a
while, if he keeps on as he has begun.
The Elliots are also up and a-doing.

Editor Journal : The celebration
in Mr. Wasscrburgcr's grove on the
4th was more than we expected. It
was quite a success, the largest
crowd by hundreds that has ever
met at this place.
Mr. Wasserburger carried oft" the
purse ou the wheelbarrow race.
There was a grand dinner in the
grove, good enough for a king to sit
to, and tho music was No. 1. Rev.
Mr. Roberts delivered the oration,
which was good.
Dancing commenced iu the hall,
at 4 p. m., and was kept up till 5
a. in. Everybody seemed to enjoy
themselves "well. The music was
the best ever played at this place,
aud it was impossible) for people to
sit still; they were waltzing in ev
ery corner, up stairs, down stairs,
iu the kitchen, in the office and all
over, in short, we just had tho best
time we ever had at this place.
Now and Then.
From the Chronicle.
The improvements made by Mr.
A. C. Tyrrel on his block by tree
planting are well worthy of imita
tion. His collection of fruit and
forest trees consists of apple, pear,
peach, cherry, box elder, black wal
nut, and honey locust. Besides these
ho has a number of grape vines and
some shrubbery. The trees, now in
their dark green foliage, arc beauti
ful to look upon. A few more with
the energy and taste of Mr. T., and
Madison would soon become a city
of groves and shady avenues.
The Bat Smashers and Shell Creek
boys played a game of ball at this
place last Saturday, and the Smash
ers got badly scooped. They were
no match for a picked nine taken
from different parts of Platte coun
ty, and an umpire whose sympathy
for the club from his own place was
so great that he decided everything
in their favor. They played nine
innings and tho score stood 2 to 47.
We learn that both clubs are reg
ularly organized, and that the A. &
N's. of this county, instead of being
a picked nine, have been playing
together for two years. To make
the thing altogether satisfactory
Platte county suggests that a game
be played by the same nines, to be
umpired by any recognized fair
minded man in Fremont, Omaha, or
any other place outside of Platte aud
Madison couutics, for love, fun,
money, chalk or marbles. Now, Mr.
Chronicle, let the Smashers come
to time right away, quick, aud "may
we all be there to see."
Some Columbus chaps,wlio haven't
sense enough to miud their own bus
iness, aro dodging around in the
west part of this precinct working
in au underhanded manner to defeat
the precinct proposition. We ad
viso tho citizens in the west part of
the precinct to appoint one of their
number as fool-thresher and lot him
dust the jackets of these Colnmbus
bummers. Let our people consider
whether the object of these men is
to benefit us or to enhance their own
interests to our everlasting detri
ment. Are they actuated by mo
tives of pure philanthropy, or by
hogish selfishness? Does the "milk
of human kindness" course so freely
through the veins of theso meddlers
that they can afford to leave their
own business and mix themselves
up iu the business of our citizens?
The people of this precinct arc old
enough, and wise enough, to con
duct their own affairs, and of this
fact the ColumbuRite8 -will please
take particular notice.
Tho Chronicle has been pleased to
do itself and Columbus citizens a
gross injustice. Columbus has no
interest in defeating Madison rail
road schemes, but on the contrary
desires to see this whole region
prosperous. For herself, Columbus
is about to enter upon an other stage
of her existence as a city and needs
to be on the friendliest terms with
all the thriving communities in the
circle of her business acquaintance.
