Hon. H. J. Hudson went to Norfolk
Thursday to attend tho dedication of
the Odd Fellow's hall at that place.

ciples, objects and aspirations of tho or

tion throughout by tho large audience."
The Grand Island train on the
Union Pacific has been discontinued,

last week making ready for the new ar
rangement, so that the local trains
could stop on tho north side of the new
Jacob Tschudincame to the Loup river
bridge Thursday, with a load of wheat
for this market, supposing that the
bridge would be passable with loads.
Finding it not so, however, he was not
to bo thwarted, and carried his wheat
over the weak span and had it d rayed
into town. The southside folks do their
best to get to this market, and if we had
a good, permanent bridge Columbus
would feel its benefits, at once.
The Bee of Saturday had tho fol
lowing mentions of shipments from this
place: "G. E.Willard of Colnmbus,Neb.,
received the top price for a good load of
hogs;" "Rickly Bros, topped tho market
with a load of hogs yesterday;" "Colum
bus shippers were in luck yesterday,
two loads of good hogs from that point
selling for S5.42J;" "John Wiggins mar
keted a load of 40c hogs yesterday. Mr.
Wiggins is the secretary of the Live
Stock Shippers Association."
A man from the west was in the vil
lage Saturday, and as he had to wait
some time for the train he thought he
would spend his time in taking in the
town. He was passing the Journal
block and saw the crowd in and around
it; wondering what the attraction was,
he thought he would wait his turn and
go in, and a more astonished man never
was seen, when he was shown some
of the bargains they were giving. He
went away with a suit, overcoat, pair
boots and his wife a good shawl, and was
satisfied he got the whole thing for less
than he could the suit at home.
The Loseke-Eikemeyer affair of last
week was a very unfortunate matter to
both men concerned and will probably
be the cause of other difficulties and ex
penses. Neighbors have enough to
cause trouble in the ordinary run of
business without resorting to violence
to accomplish what they think is right,
between man and man, and should rath
er cultivate a spirit of forbearance and
patience. It is, no doubt, better in the
end, and the Journal thinks it is better
all along the route. If disputes cannot
be settled amicably, through friends, or
by arbitration, take due process of law
agree to disagree, if you must, but
settle the dispute in a legal way. Self
government after all, is a good thing.
"A Shooting Scrape.
Word came to the city Wednesday-last
that Wm. Loseke, living west of Platte
Center, had shot and killed his neigh
bor, Diedrich Eikemyer. Later it was
learned that the shot was not necessarily
fatal. The wounded man was taken to
Platte Center and Drs. Martyn & Schug
of this city sent for; he was afterwards
brought to the city and is now (as we
write, Thursday), in the Hospital. The
strong probability is that he will lose
the sight of one eye, and possibly both.
It 6eems that the dispute arose over a
road that it is claimed had been used as
such for eleven years; that an obstruc
tion had been placed on the road; that
Eikemyer, undertaking to remove it
against Loseke's protest, the latter
struck at him, as is claimed, with a gun,
the charge, wholly of powder, being acci
dentally discharged with the result
Loseke was put under arrest and ad
mitted to bail in $1,500.

Bert. Arnold has returned from Omaha

store while ho is off on his visit to Cali

city Wednesday to look after his report
to the State Sup't of Schools. He
claimed that he had not been able to
complete his report because he had not
himself received reports from districts
1 and 13, and that, if the report could be
got to Lincoln by the 24th, it would be
in time to secure tho state apportionment.
The Omaha dailies of Thursday gave
account of a matter that might have
been of considerable interest here, if
there had Ijeen any foundation, in truth,
for it. We clip from the Bee, as it gave
tho briefest mention of the matter,
premising that it is utterly without
foundation, so far as the people con
cerned being from this city is concerned,
whatever else"of it may be true, and wo
publish the item for one reason only,
that it may bo branded as false in every
particular. Those who take the name
of our city in this way should be sent to
tho calabooso on general principles:
"An eloping couple came to grief nt
tho transfer depot across the river last
evening just as they had begun to
breathe freely and thought they were
safe from pursuit. They were Mr. E. C.
Johnson and Mrs. Miller, residents of
Columbus, Neb., and both married.
"Word had been telegraphed to tho chief
of police to look out for the pair, and a
vigilant officer was on hand at the trans
fer and secured tho fleeing lovers. They
were quietly taken into custody, tho
patrol wagon summoned, and after a
short but tearful ride they were landed
behind tho bars, whore they will bo held
awaiting further particulars from Co
lumbus. It is said that both Mr. John
son and Mr. Miller, the husband of the
eloping woman, are prominent business
men at Columbus."
The married couple were reported,
next day, as having "made up," and
registered at the hotel as E. H. Meyer
and" wifo of Cedar Rapids, Neb.
Saturday morning, word was received
hero that Walter Martin, a young man
twenty years of age and a brakeman on
tho Albion train which runs out from
here at 7 a. m., had been very seriously
injured and would bo brought down im
mediately. The Union Pacific local sur
geons, Drs. Martyn .t Schug were on
hands promptly, and everything got in
readiness to receive and care for the
injured man. Soon tho engino with the
baggage car arrived at the depot, and
the injured man taken into tho baggage
His injuries proved fatal and death
brought relief in the course of fifteen
The body was taken to undertaker,
Henry Gass's place, whore we saw it.
The toes of the right foot and the fingers
of tho left hand were mashed, and a gash
cut in tho left side of the abdomen.
Thero seemed no injury about the head,
and the casual observer would be in
clined to believe that life had been lost
through flow of blood.
Wo learn that young Hoffman who
met with a somewhat similar fatality
about six months ago at Fullerton, was
a cousin of young Martin.
Colamlms City Bridge Rondo.
The following from the Omaha Re
publican's Lincoln correspondent, shows
the status of our bonds as viewed from
In response to an inquiry from Audit
or Babcock, asking if the voting of
bonds by a city of the second class in
Platte county, to build a bridge over the
Loup river, said bridge being without
the jurisdiction of said city, comes un
der the section of the statute governing
the voting of bonds for works of internal
improvement, the attorney general has
decided adversely to the validity of the
bonds, holding that the building of a
bridge outside the city limits iB not such
a work of internal improvement within
the meaning of the statute as will allow
the voting of bonds to aid in its con
struction, and that the city has no au
thority to issue bonds for such purposes
unless authorized by some act of the
legislature. The act of the legislature
governing cities of the second class
limits their authority to an appropria
tion of $5 per lineal foot for such pur
poses. See section 75, chapter , com
In accordance with this opinion the
auditor will refuse to register the bonds,
and it is presumed that mandamus pro
ceedings will follow."

result of the encounter, Walker was ar

THE OMAHA WEEKLY BEE.
A Magnificent Selection of Premium to lie
Awarded to Sabficribem. How the Pub
lishers of the Bee Distribute a Large Num
ber of Valuable Premlumx Among Their
The publishers of tls Bw are this season offer
inn its patrons the largest and mot-t vnlnablo list
of premiums that has over been awarded by them.
For the part neven years the Bee has annually
distributed among its patrons a large numlx-r of
valuable and useful article, increasing tho num
ber and value each year as the number of snb
scrilters increased. This system was first inaug
urated bj the publishers about eight'yenra ago as
tho mecAs of collecting back pay, securing
renewals and increasing the circulation of tho
Bee. In this it proved a success. Several thou
sand dollurs back dnes were collected which
would otherwise have been almost entirely lost
or expended in enforcing collections through
agents or attorneys, and tho subscription list was
increased from 3,500 to over 35,000 in seven years.
Each successive year a larger number of sub
scribers was secured and the list of premiums
was proportionally increased.
During the first year only a small portion of
the articles distributed were procured in ex
change for advertising. When the marked in
crease in the circulation became known to the
merchants and manufacturers, they willingly
offered their goods and machinery in exchange
for advertising. In this manner a very valuable
selection of premiums was secured, with a com
parative email outlay of cash. Almost all the
more valuable articles are obtained in this way.
Nearly tho only outlay in cash mado is for the
minor premiums, such as books, cutlery, etc.
These are purchased at tho very lowest wholesale
rates in very large quantities. In this wny it is
made possible to award such a magnificent lot of
premiums to subscribers, and send each the
imper for one j ear for the price of two dollars.
Tho following is a partial list of the articles to
be awarded at the next distribution:
80 acres of fine land in Colfax Co., Ne
braska, valued at $1,200 00
One Omaha city lot 700 00
One Aultman & Taylor threshing ma
chine JVs3 00
One Heilman thresliing machine 665 00
One celebrated Weber upright piano.. 656 00
Four parlor organs valued at from SlrPto 1T5 00
One Ilegistered Holstein bull 500 00
One Jersey bull calf 100 00
