hoped that parents and others will
visit the schools during these exami
nations and look into the work. The

Some "Smart Aleck" in Custer
county, possibly with a desire to
emulate the enterprise (?) of some of
our daily newspaper reporters in get
ting up sensational lies, has been
humbugging the local press of that
county with a fictitious account of a
horrible murder, which has been cop

State. That fellow's reportorial pro

The Gordon Press, published at
Gordon, Sioux county, Nebraska,
mentions the fact that a B. & M. rail
road official recently spent several
days at that place and opines that he
was there in the interests of that
road. It does not seem improbable
that the B. & M. may conclude to
branch out into the new northwest
from some point where it has tapped
the U. P., and why may not that
point be Columbus, and the lime the
year of 1885?

It would appear that a party from
David City recently tried successfully
a little confidence racket in this city.
By representing that he bad money
in the National Bank of David City
and was a little short of cash, through
the endorsement of an acquaintance
here, who believed him to be an
honest man in a little strait for money,
he succeeded in getting one of our
prominent citizens to endorse his
draft, which draft the said citizen
was subsequently obliged to pay.

A lawyer the other day, in the
trial of a suit here said that D. L.
Brueu had been sent for to help out
the case ; that Bruen, although a farm
er, didn't do anything but read anti
monopoly papers, of which he took
more than anybody else In the county.
It is true that David takes a great
many papers and reads them, but he
is also an industrious man otherwise,
and the lawyer who undertakes to
bamboozle bim on politics, will have
to get up early in the morning, and
eat whale for breakfast. Certain gen
tlemen perhaps remember a contest
they once had with Brnen and how it

stealing. They were sentenced by
Judge Tiffany to two years each in
Miss Phosa McAllister, support
ted by a first-class company, open
their engagement at the Opera House,
Friday night. The play selected is
that magnificent love story of Marie
Lovell, "Ingomar, the Barbarian." It
is a rare treat to have one of the
standard dramas presented here, and
especially one by the gifted authoress.
It is in happy contrast to the trash
usually dished up, and even if devoid
of the scenic effects and accessories
worthy of the piece, it will be enjoy
able if well rendered. Miss McAllis
ter comes under the tongue of dis
criminating report as an admirable
actress. The St. Paul Press says,
"She is the finest actress that has ever
graced the stage in St. Paul." If this
be true, her rendering of Parthenia
should be the best we have ever beard
here. The company is a large one
and is highly spoken of by the eastern
and southern press. The Salt Lake
engagement was so great a success
that it was extended one night be
yond the season advertised. We trust
our people will manifest their appre
ciation of the standard drama by
giving the McAllister company a
WMIck Aralies to the Yictlau of I
Laii Week's Fallare.
The Journal in its last week's issue
merely mentioned the fact that Mrs.
B. F. Stump, late milliner and dress
maker in this city, had failed and that
her stock of roods was in the hands
of Oberfelder & Co., of Omaha, by
authority of a chattel mortgage held
by them. Since that time further
facts in connection with the matter
have been developed which will be of
interest to the public, and also the
fact has appeared that Mrs. Stumps
list of creditors is much larger than
was at first supposed, her liabilities
aggregating, in round numbers, to her
wholesale dealers and other claimants
who have been represented here, to
about $15,000, to say nothing of num
berless bills for small amounts, which
are in the back ground in utter hope
lessness of realizing any portion of
themselves in a scramble. The larg
est claims were held by Oberfelder &
Co., of Omaha, who were creditors to
the amount of $2,900, Rosenheimer &
Levis, St. Louis. $2,600, and Chas.
McDonald. Omaha, $1,500. It would
appear that Messrs. Oberfelder & Co.
first became aware that their interests
were in danger, and immediately set
about securing themselves. They
telegraphed their lawyers here on
Sunday last and the next morning
were in possession of the store by
virtue of the mortgage before men
tioned, and commenced to dispose of
the goods. And right here let us re
mark that for lightning rapidity in
securing a debt by a mortgage and
ultimately taking possession of the
property, that record ia hard to beat,
as the entire proceedings did not
cover a lapse of more than twenty
four hours. During the day every
thing was serene and lovely for the
fortunate claimant, and the goods
went off at the sacrifice figures like
hot cakes. On Tuesday attachment
proceedings were instituted on behalf
of Rail Thayer, Williams & Co., and
ihe eager throng of seekers after bar
gains wero compelled to await an
adjustment. The claim of these par
ties amounted to $247.88. Appraisers
were appointed and goods sufficient to
cover the claim were taken from' the
stock, and again the doors were
thrown open to the public. But the
raking in of the shekels was once
more interrupted on Wednesday, this
time in the interest of Lederer, Strauss
& Co., of Des Moines, Iowa, with a
claim of $97C. A repetition of the
preceding attachment proceedings
followed, and the final kick against
the order of things which had been
instituted by the party of the first
part, Messrs. O. & Co., was made by
Chas. McDonald, of Omaha, who re
pleviued a parcel of the goods and
took them from the stock.
This little cross-purpose business on
the part of the different claimants will
doubtless lead to considerable litiga
tion and will consequently be fruit
for the lawyers. It is understood to
be the iutention of Oberfelder & Co.
to sue the bond, in each instance. In
the meantime the firm has bad clear
sailing in the closing out proceedings.
The Stumps made their advene in
the business circles of this city some
thing over two years and a half ago,
and up to the very time of their un
doing enjoyed the confidence of the
best business talent of the community.
There was a brach store at Ulysses,
on the B. & M., and we believe a store
at Norfolk, on the U. P., was also sup
plied with stock from the store here,
though having a business responsibil
lity of its own. Mrs. Stump was the
ostensible head of the business, and it
seems to have been money which was
undoubtedly her own, coming to her
from her father, with which the bus
iness here was first started, B. F.
Stump, the husband, however, ap
pearing to manage the business part
of the enterprise, and attending prin
cipally to buying the goods. He bad
been absent from the city for several
days previous to the climax in affairs,
with the avowed intention, we be
lieve, of looking up a new location
There are different opinions here as
to the exact status of this affair, and
as to who is responsible for the fail
ure, and where the money has gone.
The theory which seems to find most
favor here, notwithstanding the fact
that Mrs. S. professes to believe that
her husband will come back is that
a swindle was deliberately meditated
by Stump, which theory seems justi
fied by the fact that the vast amount
of goods purchased have been dispos
ed of in a very short time, there being
left to the creditors here not to exceed
$2,500, and we understand the branch
store to be similarly short of availa
ble assets. To this apparent swindle
Mrs. S. may be an accessory and she
The Seward Reporter of last
week mentions the fact that "a slick
looking chap was around in the resi
dence portion of the city selling sil-'
ver-plated ware, which he carried
around in his over coat pocket,"
which singular manner of conducting
a business created suspicion that he
was a crook and the sheriff took him
in on suspicion that be was disposing
of the fruits of a recent burglary at
Omaha. No evidence could be ad
duced to warrant bis detention, how
ever, and he was turned loose, and
later with a man who seemed to be
acting as a partner in the enterprise
he took the train for Columbus. Of
course, every crook, dead-beat and
scalawag that gets within hailing dis
tance of Columbus, comes to see us,
and will come until our people shut
their hearts and their purses upon
them, and make it impossible to live
and thrive among us.
