It has beon explained that tho
reason why somo men ship cattle
from Battle Creek, instead of from
Columbus or Platte Ceutcr (stations
nearer to them than Battle Creek) is
that tho better rates ($15 a car, wearo
told) are given because Battle Creek
is not iu any "pool"; that competitive
points (such as are Columbus and
Norfolk) are in tho pool, and that the
pool also iucludcs towns within fifty
miles of competitive points.

Rev. Gault speaks to-morrow
evening at the Congregational church,
in the interest of the National Re
form Association, so called. These
people state that tho association is
laboring to secure in the hearts of the
people, and ultimately in the pre
amble of the Constitution of tho
United States a recognition of Al
mighty God as the source of all
power and authority in government
etc. Among other things they say
"we need it to correct our most un
fortunate attitude under the first
amendment which restrains Congress
from prohibiting the free exercise of
any false religion, such as Mormon
ism, Oneidaism, Pagan idolatry, etc."
The success of any such scheme as
thi6, would be calculated to disrupt
the government Leaving Congress
to wrangle over which is the true
and which the false religion would
make a pretty pickle of our national
legislature, which has more on its
hands now than it can reasonably
manage. This little mundane sphere
has had quite enough of the union of
church and state, and intelligent
readers of history want none of it in
this country. Our constitution is not
hampered as these people think. No
crimes can be legally committed
under the guise of religion, and what -more
is needed?

The entertainment by the Colum
bus Lyceum last Friday evening
seemed very satisfactory to the large
audience present M. K. Turner in
troduced the numbers of the evening
by a few remarks concerning the
origin and harmonious existence of
the society for the past half year; the
demand for some such an institution in
every community, &c. The several
quartettes furnished by the Arions,
Messrs. Bowman, Cornelius, Pohl and
Falbaum, were most excellent, the
last one, in our opinion, being the
best of all; the recitations by the
three young misses, Pearl Clark, Bes
sie Sheldon and Nellie North, were
admirable; the oration by C. A.
Brindley on hero-worship, was not
only an excellent piece of literary
work, but exceedingly well deliver
ed; "Tho Old Folks at Home," by
Mary Turner was well adapted to her
voice, and given in her UBual manner ;
tho recitation by Miss Foster, "One of
the Flock," was a delight to the audi
ence, one of her pupils not being able
to believe that "the old woman" with
the failing voice, was his young
teacher ; Lute North's "SlosBer'sRide''
was a No. 1 performance ; the recita
tions by Miss Eva Clark and Miss
Clara Weaver were happy renditions
of familiar pieces ; MisB Martin's rec
itation showed her usual care and
genius, which are far above the ordi
nary ; Carl Kramer's "Trouble in the
Amen Corner" was very effectively
rendered ; "Music at Night Fall," by
Misses Mary and Martha Turner, an
old gem of song, was given in a pleas
ing manner ; the piano solos by A. C.
Picket, showed unusual talent; Gus.
Falbaum's song was well received by
the large audience ; he has, within his
make-up, a good deal of deep, smooth
bass; Miss Rose North's song gave
evidence of the high culture of her
voico, and was received, as always,
with rapturous applause; Mr. Mun
ger's select reading was a delight to
the ladies of the audience, while
Brother Backus's essay was a dish of
bread and butter and solid meat, with
a considerable portion of pungent
salt and fiery pepper. Altogether the
entertainment was such that the pub
lic call for a similar one in the near
future. It seems to the Joubval
that occasional entertainments during
tho summer will be profitable all

speaking on subjects of interest to
every true patriot. On to-morrow,
Thursday, the 18th inst., at 8 p. m., he
will Bpeak in tho Congregational
church in this city, on one of his
most vital themes. Every one should
hear him. Nearly a year ago Mr.
Gault and several other ministers
from Omaha and Fremont held a con
vention in this city. The church was
well filled. Mr. Gault will be re
membered as the one who, in logic
aud wit, was "hoad and shoulders"

A market day for stock in Co
lumbus, doubtless, would prove a
great convenience to sellers and buy
ers. It has been tried in other places
and has proved a great success. When
this market day is established, she
might add greatly to the convenience
of her garduers and farmers, in the
vicinity, who raise vegetables, as well
as to all her citizens, to erect a city
market house, and establish a regular
market for everything iu the way of
meats aud vegetables consumed by
her citizens. This small enterprise
added to her flouring mills, water
works, electric lights and telephones
would give her citizens strong faith
in the future success of Columbus
and Platte county.

In last week's Journal there was
given the proceedings of one railroad
meeting held Tuesday evening. There
was another Thursday and still an
other Saturday evening, all attended
by about the same number of inter
ested citizens. We took no notes of
Thursday's meeting, which indulged
in considerable personalities, not un
connected, however, with the general
subject The meeting had a good
result, it seems, having the effect of
airing some alleged grievances, and at
the same time, bringing clashing ele
ments together on the proposition of
a road to the northwest the subject
of Tuesday evening's discussions.
The committee appointed at the pre
vious meeting for the purpose of as
certaining from the records whether
the city could vote $25,000, reported
that that would not exceed the limit
of law. Tho next day a petition was
circulated, and very numerously
signed, and by many who had hitherto
opposed the movement, asking the
City Council to submit the proposi
tion to vote.
Another meeting was called for tho
same place Saturday ovening to dis
cuss another scnemo for a railroad,
tho proposition 4eing to induce the
Chicago & Northwestern to build to
Columbus from Leigh, a town near
the northeastern border of Platte1
county, and on the line of the propos
ed branch of the groat Northwestern
Geo. Lehman waB selected aa pres
ident and G. W. Phillips, secretary.
The president stated the object of
the mooting. Several gentlemen wero
then called out for an expression of
A. Jaeggi referred to the old-time
wagon trade of Columbus, when men
camo as much sb a hundred miles or
more with their grain to this market.
That is now past, and the A. & N.
road for which we paid $100,000 and
the IT. P. branches which cost us
$25,000, have built up trading points
around ub, so that our reliance cannot
be on the farmor trade alone, we must
have manufactures, and these, or any
wholesale business, to be successful,
must havo freight rates sufficiently low
to competo with other wholesalo and
manufacturing points in the State.
Instead of being now a competing
point, as had been hoped from the
construction of the A. & N., this place
was only so in name. Both roads
discriminate against us and in favor
of other stations near by which aro
on the ouo line or tho other, only. Of
this Mr. Jaeggi gave instances show
ing how it worked great detriment to
Our situation is 6uch that it will
take united action by our citizens.
The proposition to build a road north
west from here was certainly worthy
of attention, the routo funning
through an excellent country. It
would not, however, he thought,
answer the purpose of manufacturers
and wholesale dealers in securing
rates, it was not strong enough to
burst this pooling arrangement. To
illustrate the necessity of a competing
line he referred to the history of the
Packing House, which ought to bo iu
full blast distributing thousands of
dollars each eeaeou, but which lies
idlo for lack of rates to enabla them
to compete with other places.
There seems no reason why a con
nection with tho Northwestern was
not desirable. It had been said that
they would not build to this point,
but perhaps they have changed their
views; it may bo that, when beforo
approached, they did not care to
divulge their intentions to those
whom they may havo regarded as
interested with rival roads. Let a
committee of business men go to them
with authority from the business men
of this city to give them a fair share
of thoir shipping trade, and a bond
guaranteeing them $25,000.
It is the duty of Columbus to do
all in her power to secure better rates,
and if wo cannot havo such as to com
pete with other places, we may just
as well sit down whero wo are. He
then gavo several instances from his
own experience as a shipper, one
boing that lumber waa:laid down at
Norfolk by the Chicago & North
western for the same rato as dealers
at Omaha aud Council Blufi's were
able to secure, 12 J cents less than at
Gus. Lockner called for the reading
of a certain letter that he heard talked
of as coming from the C. & N. W.
Mr. Kavanaugb said ho had not
come to talk. We need just such an
eastern connection as this road will
give us.
Mr. Gluck mado quite a lengthy
presentation of his views, among
many other things stating that the
Northwestern had made Fremont,
with her three wholesale groceries,
one boot and shoe store and one dry
goods store. The rate on dry goods
from Chicago to Fremont on the N.
W. is 5 cents a hundred, whereas to
this place it is $1.31. The N. W. will
be a competing lino as against the
two roads we now have.
Carl Kramer said he didn't think
there was a man in town except be
was in the employ of the railroads,
who would be opposed to Columbus
getting the N. W. He explained, at
length, the operation of pools.
Prompt action is necessary.
Jas. H. Galley coincided with Mr.
K. If we could get the N. W. we
Bhould do so, because it would give a
direct line to Chicago without chango
of cars, to be a competing road.
Mr. Gerrard said that he had dono
what he could to have the N. W.
come this way, and waB now willing
to sign a bond or pot up his share of
tho money.
Remarks favorable to the enterprise
were mado by Messrs. Ragatz, D.
Anderson, Macfarland and Hudson.
On motion, a committee consisting
of A. Jaeggi, C. Kramer, I. Gluck,
D. C. Kavanaugb and Geo. Lehman
was appointed to confer with the N.
W. authorities, convey to them the
sentiment of the community and see
what done.

Too much snow ? No, tho more the

A friend of the writer had a horse
gored by cattle. Tho animal was in
the yard with the bovines. It is not
advisable to put horses or colts in the
same yards or pastures where cattle
are kept Many a valuable horso has
been killed that way.
The cars on the Norfolk branch aro
alwayB crowded and so is tho U. P.
depot at Columbus. It seems the way

could well afford to build a new and
spacious depot, as tho accommodation
of its passengers seem to require.

others aro going to ship 17 car loads

to ship from theso nearer points?
