General A. J. Sampson, of Den
ver, is visiting his father-in-law, Hon.
A. C. Turner, this week. The Gen
eral delivered a speech to a large re
publican meeting at the Opera House
on la6t Thursday evening. The
speech seemed to please bis audience,
for they greeted him with mnch ap
plause during its delivery. General
Sampson is a very able man and one
of the most prominent lawyers of
Colorado. Mr. Byron Millett, form
erly of our city, is his law partner.
Many persons seeing letters ad
vertised are in the habit of thinking
there must be a mistake in the ad
dress, and call for and open letters
belonging to other parties. There are
also letters that occasionally, through
baste or mistake, get into the wrong
boxes, and are opened by parties to
whom they do not belong. It would
be as well to let our readers know
that the penalty for any person open
ing a letter not addressed to himself,
varies from a fine not exceeding $500
to imprisonment for ten years. Ex.

D. A. Magee has received notice
of the death of his grandfather, John
Magee, in Clarion county, Pa., at the
mature age of 100 years, 3 months and
19 days. At his 100th birthday he
entertained some 300 relatives, many
of them bis descendants, a few of
them of the fifth generation. Sioux
The birthday anniversary mention
ed above was noted in these columns.
Mr. Magee is a cousin of Mr. J. J. H.
Reedy of this city. Instances of such
great age are rare, and irhen so well
authenticated are worthy of record.
Mrs. Price, as one of the dele
gates to the Congregational meeting
recently held at Norfolk, gave a re
view of the proceedings to a large
audience at the Congregational church
Sunday evening. It seems that such
is the custom of the churches, and it
is an excellent one, as it givei the
congregations a picture of the varied
affairs of the church. Rev. Price
spoke of the academies and colleges
in Nebraska, organized under the aqs
pices of the church, aud dwelt at
large upon the benefits of an educa
tion, and more especially a christian
education, which developed and fixed
the moral character of the youth
under its influence.
The new washing machine facto
ry located in Columbus has turned
out several loads of machines and
they are giving perfect satisfaction.
There have been a number of wash
ing machines in our town, but this
"Success" no doubt will lead the
field, for it undoubtedly has a perfect
principle to wash with. J. F. Lip
pincott, the patentee, made a sale last
week to W. S. Motter of Platte and
Nance counties; also some counties
in Iowa, and still has some country
convenient for sale at liberal rates
and we think it a good investment.
All persons are invited to test this
machine, as it is warranted perfect in
if b work. 1
It seems that J. Sterling Morton
made no friends at Norfolk by his
refusal to discuss the tariff issue with
Hon. J. C. Sherwin of that place, after
full arrangements had been made by
the chairmen of the political parties
there. The reason given by Mr. Mor
ton was that he would not divide
time in the afternoon, unless the re
publicans would divide time with
him at their own meeting advertised
for the same evening. Now that the
election is over and the people are
more interested than ever in the dis
cussion of this subject, we move that
a debate between these two distin
guished gentlemen take place in the
Opera House of this city at a date to
be agreed upon, a verbatim report of
the same to be taken, published, and
sold to defray the expenses.
A gentleman from Missouri was
here last week with a car load of
apples, 130 barrels, which he had
shipped to this point on the B. & M.
road. He wanted to reach Fullerton,
which is on a branch of the U. P., and
was asked as freight on the car $91.20 ;
not only this, but that the same be
prepaid, which was done. Estimat
ing that the same could be hauled by
wagon in twenty loads, taking four
teen days for man and team, thiB rate
would give $6.50 a day for man and
team very good wages. We are in
formed that this rate is the same that
it would have been from the shipping
point to the destination by way of the
U. P., virtually saying to this man (or
any other farmer or dealer who may
have the temerity to ship bis surplus
products) ship by way of our line, or
we will charge you for a part, the
full price we would for the whole
business. We are informed that the
very same exaction is made at St.
Paul, and the "principle" doubtless is
applied elsewhere. We presume that
other railroad companies do likewise
and that in all probability this is but
a retaliation by the U. P. against the
B. & M. for something of a like sort.
As to this we do not know. It is
sufficient that the thing is done, and
it is an outrage that no free people
should submit to, and to which they
will not long submit Railroad con
trol by government is nearer at hand
than many of the corporations are
aware of, and it is becoming more
and more a necessity, demanded by
the body of the people in justice to
their own interests, and by the rail
roads themselves to keep them from
mining each other's business as well
as working injury to their patrons.
The Journal desires again to lift a
warning voice to the railroads that
they should .listen aud heed the de
mands of the people oppressed by
their rates. They don't ask anything
unreasonable; they don't wish to do
injustice, and they are in no mood to
submit mnch longer.

Miss Louise Sylvester and her ex
cellent company will be at our Opera
House, Nov. 8th. This lady is highly
spoken of by our exchanges. Read
what they say :
An audience (unusually large for a
Monday night) welcomed at the Opera
House last night the new comedy
"Freaks." It is truly ono of the most
enjoyable farcical comedies ever wit
nessed, and mu6t, undoubtedly, before
the close of the engagement, make its
mark as the greatest hit of this pro
lific season of legitimate comedy. The
make-up attitudes, entrances and ex
its of the principal characters, each in
turn, are greeted with shoots of laugh
ter, which at times considerably in
terfere with the progress of the Btage
business. At the close of each act the
curtain had to be raised twice in an
swer to the most vehement calls, and
so much was the audience stirred
during the third act that Miss Sylves
ter had to answer a recall not once
but thrice after an exit during the
middle of a scene, a remarkable epi
sode in the annals of this or any other
season, and only equaled in one in
stance, that of tho reading of "Sam's"
letter by Sothern. in "Dundreary."

The Wlaalew Place.
Satnrday last we took occasion to
visit the farm of H. M. Winslow, the
place formerly owned by our genial
old friend Mr. Senecal, northwest of
the city. Mr. Winslow has 400 acres
of about as good soil as lays open to
the sun. His main business is the
fatting of cattle and hogs and the
raising of fine blooded stock, the farm
work being a secondary consideration.
He showed us some excellent looking
Jersey hogs that certainly appear to
be good for laying on fat, as well as
for hardiness. Mr. W. tells us he is
much pleased with them, although he
acknowledges to having formerly had
a prejudice against them.
As to cattle, he has some as fine as
any we have seen in Nebraska. In
'75 the Winslow Brothers purchased
Red Rose Princess, cow aud calf, for
$7,500, and they have sold, at different
times, of her progeny, 19,100 worth,
and have some very valuable ani
mals of the number yet in their pos
session. They have had abundant
proof of the worth of thoroughbred
Mr. Winslow has in Nebraska about
400 head of cattle, and is now feeding
two hundred and fifty head. He
sowed ninety acres to millet this
season, and thinks very well of it as a
feed. At the last plowing of corn
last year he sowed rye in corn ground
pasturing it dnring the winter and
cutting it for green feed along in the
spring, Just before the time for sow
ing millet, thus getting three crops a
year from the 6ame ground. J. H.
Meyer, who was with us, said that he
had tried both millet and Hungarian,
and much preferred the latter.
Among the things noted at thiB
model stock farm was a good pair of
scales for weighing all kinds of farm
products ; a good bouse with conven
ient partitions and outside yards for
brood sows ; places for feeding bay to
cattle in the corrals something
worthy of imitation by all who feed
outdoors. Ordinarily, the feeding
rack is torn down or trampled down
two or three times during the winter,
but these will scarcely be disturbed.
Posts are planted well into the ground
in two parallel lines about four feet
apart. The alternate posts reach two
feet above the ground, the others full
length ; the space is then enclosed by
inch boards, excepting the last line
reaching to the top of the shorter
posts which is of 2x6 spiked to the
posts. This forms the manger proper
which, if left thus, would not last
long. About 18 inches above the 2x6
and reaching around the manger is
placed barbed wire, encircling each
taller post, and stapled fast to it. Mr.
W. told us that the cattle were not In
clined to disturb each other while
feeding, and approached the rack
with all due and proper respect. He
intends to apply the same remedy to
his tables for feeding corn. We
noticed (by the way) that Mr. Holden,
the Buperintendent of the farm, cut
every ear of corn fed into about three
pieces a good deal of work but be
thinks it pays. Mr. W's. granaries
are so arranged that a team can be
driven under cover, and tho grain
thrown either eido into bins. His
feed stable for cattle is on much the
same plan, excepting that the middle
aisle is only wide enough to go with
a wheel barrow. A corral for cattle
and hogs has a high, solid board fence
north and northwest, while for the
remainder there are seven strands of
barb wire, the five lower having a
double set of barbs (bog wire) aud
being about four inches apart only
little pigs making their way through.

more, notice improvements, talk over

Factory and Shipping Rooms on Nebraska Ave., near 13th St.
The past week has seen three large
political meetings held at the Opera
House, each oue an honor to any
speaker. That on Wednesday even
ing was addressed by M. Zentmeycr
of Schuyler, and J. Sterling Morton,
democratic candidate for governor.
We had not tho privilege of hearing
Mr. Z. For tho first time we heard
Mr. Morton. We are told that his
speech bearing upon the tariff was
the same delivered here two years
ago, the same that he gave during tho
campaign, wherover he spoke. He
asserted that the present tariff law
was calculated to "tax all of us for
the benefit of a few of us," character
izing thiB as unjust, and a9 a species
of robbery, losing sight of a fact plaiu
to every thinking lad at his desk at
school, who knows how it is that he
has tho benefit of the free school sys
tem. Tho truth is that auy govern
ment is a "taxing of all of us to benefit
some of us," but this "some of us" in
all just governments, in the aggregate
includes all there is of us. The
bachelor who has no children may bo
taxed for the schooling of teu chil
dren of his neighbor who may not be
able to pay any school tax whatever.
The same principle holds good as to
the tax for the support of tho poor
and the unfortunate and tax for the
prosecution of criminal, and their
punishment for crimes against society.
We are taxed for the general welfare,
in which we all share, and if the
burden is laid equally upon the dif
ferent industries of the country, it is
all right. Mr. Morton did not tell us
how he was iu favor of raising money
to pay the expenses of the general
government. The presumption is
that he would do away with all tariff
and levy a direct tax. It goes for
the saying that the country will
never favor this method. Mr. Mor
ton is a polished, pleasant speaker,
until he gets beyond a certain pitch
of excitement, when he becomes
abusive, personal and somewhat
reckless, which was more fully shown
by his couduct Thursday last at
The republican meeting at the
Opera House Thursday evening was
one of the best of the campaign, and
Mr. Sampson'B arraignment of the
democratic party, as shown from
their own record, we have not heard
The last demonstration on Monday
night was altogether the best of the
campaign. The Blaine and Logan
club were out in full force with
cornet band and their own military
band, and on horseback in large
numbers, beariug torches aloft, with
a goodly number of torches borne by
footmen, and a large re-enforcement
of men with new brooms, signifying
a clean sweep by the republicans.
Thfi nrocession naraded all the
principal streets of the city making
the air lively with music and cheers.
The Opera House was packed, and
the audience listened to a very ex
cellent address by Hon. Jjio. Rush of
Omaha. Mr. Rush was born in Ire
land, and his address was, in good
part, calculated to interest that na
tionality particularly in the success
of the republican party. Mr. Rush
will be warmly welcomed any time
he may address a Columbus audience.

Care for llofr, Cholera.
Now that counties east of ns have
bad losses running up into hundreds
of thousands of dollars from the rav
ages of cholera, it may be well for our
readers to clip tho following and
make us of it. From our own expe
rience we judge that the directions
are good at any time when bogs are
not in fair condition. We have had
intimations that the cholera has mado
its appearance in this county, but dil
igent inquiry has failed to fiud it. But,
to our knitting:
"A citizen of Burt county recom
mends the following treatment as a
sure euro for hot; cholera: As the
disease is brought about by dirty
pens and a corn diet, a change in the
right direction will, by removing the
cause, produce a euro. First change
tke hogs to high, fresh ground ; then
feed wholly on oats. As soon a3 the
hogs stop dyiug, feed a little corn,
then continue the oats. Give ashes
and salt. This is a positive cure aud
an inexpensive one. The hogs will
not only get well, bnt fatten much
faster than on corn diet."
