It Is a well known fact that we

trimmings, hosiery, parasols, trimmed
and untriinmed hats, and eon
downs, cloaks, dolmans and ulsters is
superior to all others, aud it is to
everybody's interest to buy of us.
From season to season we endeavor
to keep a finer class of goods, to
keep you from sending to larger
places for goods.

crops. It would seem so, even here,
where there are no severe restrictions

In relation to winter wheat the
Omaha Republican says the winter
wheat, of which probably more was
sown last fall than in any former year
in Nebraska, is ?aid to be looking re
markablylpromising.lt passed through
the winter without damage, and from
the time the frost left the ground all
conditions have been highly favora
ble, .the cool weather being particu
larly beneficial. It is now so far ad
vanced that predictions as to the out
come can be made with a degree of
certainty which insures at least a good
winter wheat crop in Nebraska.
Time and again certain of onr
citizens have been implored by their
friends, including the local press of
the city, to desist from a criminal
practice that has been drawing them,
like a maelstrom, into the deeps from
which there is no return, and in which
there is no shadow of mercy or safety.
The prayers and tears of relatives,
the advice of friends, and the warn
ings of the press, while they have
doubtless had their effect npon some,
have had little upon others. The
Journal knows that some of these
men are as kind-hearted as any that
live, a few of them are honest in many
business ways, but we all know and
they know that the road they have
been traveling on leads straight to de
struction, and it is high time to call a
halt, and "about face, march."
Mr. I. Gluck, dealer in dry-goods,
clothing, etc., -had one of the order
gentry arrested last week and fined,
for not taking out a peddler's license.
Mr. Gluck's action was based on the
theory that these traveling salesmen
take away a good deal of the trade
that naturally belongs to home deal
ers, who live here, support local
establishments, pay rent and taxes,
and in all ways help to build up home
interests, and also on the fact that
home dealers can furnish like goods
at as low and often lower rates.
These same gentry operate in other
ways, by taking orders for cloth and
suits of clothes ; by taking orders for
stationery, blauk books, Job-work,
etc. ; by taking orders for everything
in the Hue of goods and wares. If
some just rule could be established in
all these it would be-a good thing for
home business interests, which all are
mutually interested in building up.

The W. S. A. of the Fourth Judicial
District convened in Columbus Thurs
day morning May 4th. The meeting
was called to order at 10 a. m., Vice
Prest. Clara B. Colby of Beatrice in
Tho programme for the sessions was
read, also a 'letter from Rev. Mr.
Clara B. Smith and Mr. Bigelow
were appointed a committee to wait
upon the various ministers and some
of the prominent men in town and
invite them to attend.
A committee on resolutions was
appointed, consisting of Mrs. Brooks,
Omaha, Mrs. Dr. Longshore, Colum
bus, and Judge Northrop late of
South Carolina, but now of Omaha.
The afternoon session opened at 2
o'clock with music and prayer by
Rev. Wilson, followed by an address
of welcome by Mrs. Dr. Longshore.
This was an address of great merit
and much appreciated by friends pres
ent. The response was by Belle G.
Bigelow, State secretary. The presi
dent's address by Mrs. Colby was
excellent and well delivered. Mrs.
Bigelow then read a paper written by
Mrs, Van Pelt on "How to make the
amendment carry." It was plain,
concise and logical, and was followed
by- a discussion opened by Mrs..
Brooks and participated iu by nearly
all present. .
A committee was appointed to issue
a call for a county organization. The
committee was as follows : Mr. E. A.
Gerrard, Eliza P. Bingham and Will
The evening's exercises opened by
the audience singing very heartily the
old favorite hymn America. A very
earnest logical address of much merit
was given by Mr. G. E. Bigelow of
Fillmore county, followed by a recita
tion by Mrs. Colby ; this was Dr.
Lock's "Hannah Jane," and was in
deed finely rendered.
Rev. Mr. Pierce then presented
what he considered very convincing
arguments why women should not
have the ballot. His remarks were
received with much laughter. Your
readers can form a better Idea of the
truth of bis remarks than I can. He
was followed by Mrs. Colby, who fre
quently "brought down the house" by
her happy hits. The discussions
awakened much interest and we think
will ultimately result iu great good.
We are al ways glad to have the oppo
sition come out and state their objec
tions; it helps us to arrive at just
conclusions and meet erroneous argu
ments squarely on their starting
Friday forenoon was dark and
rainy, and no meeting was held. In
the afternoon a fair audience assem
bled and was called to order at 2
o'clock by Mrs. Brooks, chairman of
the executive committee. Music and
prayer by Rev. Gray opened the ex
ercises. Mrs. Van Pelt, vice president of the
fourth judicial district having resign
ed, Mrs. Dr. Longshore was appointed
in her stead.
Mrs. Clara B. Smith read a most
excellent paper entitled "Shall wo
man have the right to self govern
ment ?" Mrs. Bingham of Lost Creek
also read a paper regarding the pro
gress of woman. This was handled
in an able manner and contained
many excellent suggestions. Mrs.
Brooks, in her entertaining manner
read the rise and progress of the suff
rage work. This was very interest
ing and the facts were new to some.
Mr. Burgess followed with a few apt
remarks, also Judge Northrop.
A county association was formed
with Mrs. E. Bridges of Columbus as
president, Charity B. Kelly of Lost
Creek, vice president, Clara B. Smith
as secretary, Eliza Pearl Bingham of
Lost Creek corresponding secretary,
and Mrs. Cornwell treasurer. An ex
ecutive committee consisting of E. A.'
Gerrard, Sarah Anderson of Keats
kotoos and Sarah Anderman of Cres
ton are ready for duty. The society
are very able and enthusiastic, and
are going right to work for thorough
and complete organization. We pre
dict great things to come from the
W. S. A. of Platte Co.
Friday evening there was a fair
audience. Mrs. Brooks called the
meeting to order promptly, aud after
music, and prayer by Rev, Little, we
were favored by an address from Rev.
Gray. I wish all the people of Co
lumbus could have heard this address ;
it was indeed excellent. We are glad
to say that the clergy of the State are
rendering us much valuable assist
ance. He was followed by Judge
Northrop. This gentleman has but
lately come to Nebraska, and seeing
the need of workers, and realizing;
the justice and importance of the
cause, has entered heart and soul upon
Mrs. Brooks then delivered a most
excellent address. This lady needs
no words of mine to commend her.
She is too well known in the State
for that, and all realize the great ben
efits from her labors. Her address
was received with much applause.
The secretary presented the claims
of the W. W. Journal and urged its
hearty support. So closed the first
convention in the fourth district.
The officers of the State Association
were highly pleased with their visit
to Columbus and look for good re
sults to follow.

Mk. Editor: Permit me to con
gratulate yon upon -the greatly im
proved condition of the Journal.
As the city of Columbus and indeed
the whole of Platte couuty makes vast
strides iu material progress, so the
Journal keeps pace, or rather leads
on. Wish we could also see moral
improvement in public matters, but
ia- this respect we cannot boaBt. Our
naxt grand jury ought to look into
some matters. We hear of peaceable
citizens being threatened and heuce
of their carrying concealed weapons ;
rumors of wife-beating are afloat, and
other crimes shock the sense'of our
otherwise moral people. Prompt and
severe justice to culprits would soon
produce a change for the better.
One of our old neighbors above ub.

from Omaha, the city of dust or mire
to stay awhile with her children.
The venerable lady is not very well ;
she hopes that on the beautiful bluffs
of Shell Creek valley her health will

Quite a number of Welsh people
have come to this neighborhood. They
are an industrious and economical
sort of people bound to prosper. Be
sides, some of them are men of means
and character. Thoy hold religious
services twice every Sunday, in pri

the school-bouse No. 31 in the after
noon. There is also Sunday school
and meeting held in the same place,

for a good corn year for 'corn is

thy great improvement, wish you a

Ed. Journal : It is with feelings
or regret that I have again to trouble
your columns in annonncing to the
public that the county bridge at my
place on the 3d inst., at or about two
o'clock a. m. was set on fire and partly
consumed, thanks to my early rising,
or the whole structure ould have
been a total wreck ; with the assist
ance of my hired nmn and sons wc
succeeded in saving two-thirds of the
structure. It is in the neighborhood
of a year since your attention was
called to the burning of this same,
bridge. The former midnight at
tempt was made with kerosene and
hay and set the end on fire and as this
did not succeed it was thought this
time to try it in a more effectual spot,
by pouring the kerosene into the keys
at the cord on the side where they
had the benefit of the wind.
Now, Mr. Editor, it is a deplorable
state of affairs that some men can be
so depraved as to prowl around under
the cover of darkness and destroy
public property. True to savage in
stincts, the time selected was the hour
before dawn, when they knew that
the coast was clear and" all good citi
zens wrapped in sound repose. But
why do I thus continue 1 Suffice to
say that the bridge is located near to
