Mr. McVicker says that the Fall

aud cultivate them the same, for
seasons, after which they can
take care of themselves.

The best butter in the New York

We are assured that first-class Ne

Iowa. Their's is an older settled
state, and doubtless the facilities for
handling butter, the stables, the milk
houses, &., are, on the average, bet
ter than those of Nebraska, but our
folks are learning fast, and nothing
will bring them to the front quicker
than to know that the gilt-edged
butter made by the Nebraskana who

ought certainly to beau inducement
for the men of Nebraska to go to
work and provide the best of milk

The Omaha Republican of Sat
urday contained a detailed account
of a horrible accident which hap
pened at North Bend last Friday
evening, to Mrs. Williams. She ran
up behind a train standing at the
depot, and called to a gentleman in
the caboose, with whom she had
business, and before he had time to
get to her the train moving back
wards had struck her, knocking her
down with her neck over a rail, and
two cars pasped before the train
could be stopped. Her head was
completely Revered from her body,
and, strange to say, she received not
a bruise, or a scratch any where else,
upon her head or body. She was
an excitable woman, and a man by
the name of Robinson had just
played upon her the scoundrelly
trick of selling her a piece of land
that lie had already sold to another,
receiving pay from both, which fact
probably so occupied her mind that
she was unconscious of where she
was standing, intent only upon con
ferring with a man who purposed
aidiug her in securing the arrest ot
the scoundrel who had defrauded

Several weeks since Mr. Arnold
Ochlrich of the firm of Oohlrich
Bros, of this place went to visit the
home of his mother at Elmshorn,
Holsteiu, Germany. He had been
there about, thirty days, when one
morning, before he was yet out ol
bed, two policemen made their ap-
pearauce, put him under arrest and
took him betore a police judge, who
said that ho must go to the fort for
a year, work at hard labor for a
year, or pay a fine of 200 marks,
about $50. Mr. Oehlrich paid the
200 marks, and asked the Judge if
that was all he wanted from him.
On his saying that it was, Mr. O.
said that now ho would sec the
American Consul at Hamburg about
the matter.
Alter he had started for home the
Judge sent his marshal to request
him to call at his otlice before going
to Hamburg. On returning, the
Judge iuquired concerning his pass
port, and was informed that Mr. O.
was an American citizen. He went
to Hamburg and returned in a few
weeks. Tho day following his re
turn, the Judge tried to get his
papers from him, and was determin
ed lo send him into the array, but
Mr. Oehlrich told them to keep their
hands oti him, and he left ou the 1st
of July.
We sHppoee that rather than waste
his time prosecuting for false im
prisonment, Mr. Oehlrich will make
his way to America at the earliest
opportunity, but it roust be very
annoying for an American citizen
(as much so as any of us, although
not boru here), to be treated thus,
and Secretary Blaine should make it
so Jively for these swindlers that
they will never dare undertake their
game again.

One of the members of the City
Council tells us that a Journal cor
respondent, in treating of city mat
ters, should remember that the city
debt is less than $4,000; that war
rants are worth from 80 to 90 cts. on
the dollar; that the publication of
tho ordinances in pamphlet form, can
not coat the city $200 all tho print
ing for the year, including every
item for publication of ordinances
in newspaper, and in pamphlet form,
for job-work, everything in tho
printing line, cannot cost more than
$150. He suggests, too, that if there
were a good attendance of citizens
at the meetings of the Council, and
a complete publication of their pro
ceedings by the newspapers, there
would be less occasion for fault

J. E. Elliott has iuveuted a com
bination drive well that promises to
make a big revolution in the bus
iness of supplying water. Any
number of wells may he included in
the combination, the tops being
drawn toward each other iu an easy
curve, and enclosed in a large in
verted funnel, closed below, the
streams joining and forming one
curreut as the water is pulled out
by suction.
A trial was made Friday last with
the fire engine, on a well of this
kind, having five supply tubes, and
it gave excellent satisfaction.
Heretofore Columbus has started
out on a system of large wells lined
with plank, but this looks as though
it would be a decidod improvement,
and will probably be adopted.
There is every indication that our
section of country has an unlimited
supply of water, when you go down
into the coarse gravel.and the theory
of this invention is that with these
supply pipes you form the equiv
alent of a well as large as (perhaps
larger than) the area enclosed by
There are several advantages to
the new well, among which are its
cost, compared with the other, oue

A called meeting of the citizens of
Columbus was held on Saturday last
at the Town Hall.
Col. John Rickly was called to the
chair and David Anderson elected
About all the business interests of
the city were represented, and the
object of the meeting as stated by
tho chairman was to take some actiou
and devise the necessary means, to
repair tho Platte river bridge, eleven
spans of which were washed away
last March, by the Ice and water,
and also to inquire into the reason
of the great delay in constructing
the Loup Fork bridge, and urge its
immodiate completion.
Mr. Robinson, the contractor, be
ing present gave his reason for the
tedious manner work on the Loup
has been delayed, and promised to
have his contract fulfilled in about
seven or eight days, when we may
again expect to have our former
trade from south and west of the
Loup renewed.
Remarks were made by Mr. Beck
er, Mr. Kramer, John Wiggins and
others, concerning the proper course
to pursue in rebuilding the Platte
river bridge, and on motion of J. E.
North, it was resolved that a com
mittee of three be appointed, consist
ing of John Rickly, John Wiggins
and G. A.Schroeder for the purpose
of investigating the condition of
funds available for the speedy re
pairing of Loup aud Platte bridges,
and to consult with the county
commissioners in regard to the early
completion of said bridges. Also to
examine the contract made for driv
ing piles, and putting on the caps

EniTon iIoukkal: As the city
council havo uot, as I am aware,
complied with Subdivision 31, Sec
tion 09, Chap. 23, Laws of Nebraska,
18S1, page, 1SG, which provides
"The council or trustees shall
"cause to be published, semi-annual-"ly,
a statement of the receipts of
"the corporation aud sources there
"of, and an itemized account of ex
penditures, with a statement of the
"financial condition of the city or
"village," the exact amount of our
city debt cannot be ascertained, but
is supposed to be little less than five
thousand dollars. The ten thou
sand dollars in bonds proposed to
be voted by a few parties included
the debts of the city incurred the
present year, as well as its out
standing debt incurred during pre
vious years. Now if we assume that
$5000.00 in cash is necessary to liqui
date such outstanding debt, the fol
lowing estimate will show that the
city in ten years, when the bonds
fall due, would lose $3,351 37 pro
vided our municipal affairs could bo
managed on the same basis as they
were during Mr. Becker's adminis
tration, aud tho city pay at the rate
of $1500.00 per year on its old debt.

Let us grant, for the sake of ar
gument in favor of the funding pro
cess, that the bonds can be negotia
ted at par, that it will cost nothing
to nogotiate them or call an electiou
therefor, how stands the matter
then? $5,000.00 drawing 7 percent,
interest in ten years, would equal
$8,500.00 principal and interest, thus
leaving a difference against bonds
between that sum and $5093.00,
which equals $2807.00.
Again, it will bo seen at the end
of three years on the above hypoth
esis we would have no city debt if
we didn't vote bouds. On the other
hand, our bonded debt then, in
cluding accrued interest,
amount to $1)050 00. But it may bfe
urgod that the interest will have to
be paid annually. Grant it. The
principal, $5000.00, cannot be paid
for ten years. It has been asserted
by good authority that there is more
than eiiouirb taves lnvmd for fliio
and previous years, which might be
applied towards paying oil' tho old
debt. It is very hard for the citv
to he sued ou its outstanding orders,
but tho judgments which have boon
rendered thereon are trifling in
amount, and they have all been paid
up, I. believe. Who are likely to
sue the city again ? When such is
the case, some way may be contriv
ed by which the matter can be met.
It is not best to cross a bridge till
we reach it. Furthermore, city
warrants have not the qualities of
negotiable paper, their consideration
can always be enquired into. Some
of our outstanding paper may have
been illegally issued, but if we vote
bonds to pay it oil; whon paid;ur
money is virtually lost.
It was stated to the writer by a
member of the city council, that onf
Monday, July 25th, a resolution was
introduced before our city fathers
for tho purpose of ascertaining tho
nature of the city's title to Frankfort
Square, whether it could be divided
into lots and sold by the city, but
was voted down, there beiii"' a tie
vote, the Mayor voting in the nega-
tive. It would soem that the sub-(
jeet is worthy of consideration, for
if that proporty could be sold, its
proceeds applied towards paying ofl'
our obligations, and the amount of
taxable property increased, the in
terests of our little commonwealth
would be much bettor subserved,
for aB it stands fenced iu, it is of no
use only for growing weeds, and
payiug the overseer of streets out of
city funds for harvesting them.

According to Lexicographers a
gambler is one who plays for money
or other stakes, and this vice is not
confined to cards, billiards, pool and
such games, but takes iu horse rac
ing and kindred matters which how
ever innocent in themselves when
kept in proper bounds, yet seem to
lack the'excitemeut so much sought
after, unless there is a pecuuiary
value attached to their success
or failure. Of the evil resulting
from an indulgence in the first of
these games, this community has but
too recently had a sorrowful expe
rience, but let those who would
punish the violators of law in these
respects, see to it that their hands
are clean before they commence
throwiug stones, for under the moral
law siu is the same whether the
degree be large or small. Wo may
endeavor to hide the deformity of
the thing nuder the name of driving
parks, agricultural fairs, &c, but the
cloven foot is there, and soouer or
later its hideousness will show its
effects. Agricultural exhibitions
when properly conducted tend to
the development and improvement
of any neighborhood, but it tho evils
referred to are to be considered as
necessary adjuuets theu it would be
better to remain undeveloped.
