congratulates tho city on the accession
of two young men of means and ability.
- The 35 fat steers Frazier bought of
J. 11. Reed and mentioned in last week's
Journal, brought 7 cents per cwt. more
than anything offered the day they were
sold at Omaha. Most of them were
coining 2 years old this spring. Good
breeding and early feeding will pay. All
of those steers woro raised by Mr. Reed
and givo somo idea of tho stock to bo
offered at his sale the last of this month.
Naturally enough, no doubt, those
who are frequent in their visits to houses
of ill-fame are opposed to the course of
tho Journal. Wo expect them to be,
until they change their manner of life,
and we shall account it a favor to us for
them to denounco the Journal and its
editor. If they should praise tho Jour
nal it would bo )rima facie evidenco
that something was wrong. A man's
words aro a sure index to his character,
just as much as tho company he keope.
Every investment made by laborer
or capitalist helps tho city to that extent.
Sometimes men forget themselves and,
lecauso they do not see some wonder
fully large institution, think it don't
amount to much. The best are gener
ally those that grow from small begin
nings, gathering strength and import
ance with age. With the great industries
of earth as with nature the mass is made
"Little drojs of water.
Little Krains of band.
Make the mighty ocean
And the beauteous laud."
And it is also true of the growth of cities,
railway systems, manufacturing enter
prises and all that goes to make up tho
bustling, busy world of men.
It is a wonder or has been during
the past week that any man should un
dertake to come into tho city from the
north with a load. During tho working
season this year that road should be
made a highway so that when the rain
falls it will run off into the ditches
on the sides, and, instead of grading a
place barely sufficient for two wagons to
pass, the ditches should go close to the
outside of tho right of way and be made
as deep as may be to yet allow drainage,
and the high-vray crowned in the middle.
When you leave the sod in this country,
you can't have a much-traveled road, in
wet weather, unless it is graded high
and has good drainage, and the sooner
the public recognize this fact the better.
The Omaha World calls attention to
the fact that the great industrial estab
lishments are starting branches in
country towns on the theory that taxes
are lower. There is also another reason,
perhaps two, why this is the case and
why such a policy may become a settled
practice. Frst, smaller cities and towns
are all coming to 6ee the importance of
having such industries with them, and
are doing everything in their power to
encourage their location; second, the
country towns are, where rightly gov
erned, less subject to strikes and other
adverse incidents of factory life; third,
if just railroad and other transportation
laws can ever be enforced, manufactures
will be erected and flourish where the
supply of raw product is greatest, other
considerations being equal

From tho Rawlins Journal of tho 12th,
we clip the following : " Win. Lackey,
an employe of tho Union Pacific railroad
of this city, met with a very painful ac
cident Wednesday. While coaling up
an engine, ho was standing on the tender,
when tho coal chute fell and about four
tons of coal buried him, badly bruising

A lino from Frank Turner at tho same

The management of tho Union Pacific-
"Tho Overland Route," made a
chango in tho running time of its local
trains Sunday, April 29th, that will be
hailed with delight by the residents of
''Tho Omaha and Republican Valley."
This chango is made in conjunction with
the St. Joseph and Grand Island branch,
making tho leaving time of No. 7 at
Council Bluffs 8:40 a. m. and Omaha
0:00 a. in. Arriving at Valley at 10:25
a. m.; it connects with the train arriving
at Valparaiso at 11:50 a. in., and at
Stromsburg at 2:50 p.m. Hero it con
nects with tho St. Joseph and Grand
Island train, via McCool Junction and
Fairfield, arriving at Alma at 10:00 p. m.
The train running opposite leaves Alma
daily at 5:30 a. m., arriving at Stroms
burg at 12:00 p. m., Valparaiso 2:30 p. m.
and Valley 4:15 p. m., connecting with
No. 8 arriving in Omaha at 5:50 p. m.'and
Council Bluffs at 6:10 p. m., connecting
with Eastern trains. A change in the
running of trains between Lincoln and
Valparaiso, enables passengers leaving
Alma in the morning to reach Lincoln at
3:40 p. in. Leaving Lincoln at 11:35 a.
m. they connect at Valparaiso with the
Alma train, arriving there at 10:00 p. in.
Good timo and through chair car ac
commodations, makes this the most
desirablo line running into this portion
of Nebraska. Passengers between Alma
and Lincoln will be obliged to make
only one change and that at Valparaiso.

Tho policy of Mayor North and his
chief of police to see how long they can
not enforce the law against houses of
prostitution is working successfully as
yet, but a bitter feeling is growing on
the part of that class of citizens who
think that the only safe course for
officials and for the city is to rid the
city of a festering nuisance that has no
authority of law for its existence for one
minute. Is it possible that the mayor
and his chief of police are determined to
further resist the sentiment that calls
for the suppression of these places of
prostitution, and do so under the claim
that there are no such places? What
overwhelming reason can there be for
such a course? It can hardly be possi
ble that this moral blindness shall con
tinue much longer. Is it desirable that
all, everything, shall be proclaimed on
tho housetops, and that the mayor and
his chief of police, McTeggart, shall be
set down as the last men of the town to
know what every well-informed citizen
is advised of? People of property who pay
taxes, or try to pay them, do so for
the purpose of having their rights as
citizens protected. There is one safe
place for any man, private or official, to
stand, and that place is, as citizens, to
obey the laws, as officials to enforce the
the laws. Councilman Speice and those
who stand with him on this question
are right and will be sustained by this

One of tho infant industries of Colum
bus, which we have mentioned bofore in
the Journal is the shoe factory.
It has been runuing for some time,
doing good work for itself and the city
like all factories do, bringing money hero
from abroad to be spent mainly at home,
among our own business men. This is
the one great reason why every industry
of this kind should beencouraged.notby
word alono but by substantial patron
Tho factory is now located in L.
Gerrard's building west of tho B. Sc M.
depot. At present tho saw for preparing
tho soles of tho boots, shoes and slippers
is run by horse power, but steam power
will soon be used, as the demand is
rapidly growing for tho product of the
factory, tho firm having no troublo in
selling all they can make, and no won
der, when tho cheapness, the warmth
and the durability of the goods are con
sidered. Many have supposed that tho wear
ing of wooden soles is confined to old
country people, which is by no means
tho fact, and sinco tho introduction of
leather shoos with wooden soles, quite a
numbor have been sold to American
born people. Habit and fashion and tho
custom of near neighbors have a groat
deal to do with mankind's wearing ap
parel, and where on farms tho solid com
fort of tho woodon sole becomes known
it will be still more generally used.
Tho solo is outlined with a scroll saw,
and trimmed smooth with a peculiarly
shaped knife; tho shoemaker thon takes
it and adds tho leather uppers, what
ever they may bo, whothor slipper or
shoo, with or without buckle, or boot,
leather or felt top, tho leather being
fastened to tho wood by screws nails.
The shoo is then blackened and it is
ready for the market.
Tho proprietors of the establishment
are Siegenthaler Bros. t Lutz and they
employ, at present, six persons, and ex
pect soon to incroaso their force.
With their present facilities they can
complete, from start to finish, forty
pairs each day.
Their product goes to every part of
tho United States, and consequently
Columbus is benefitted by money drawn
from all quarters to be spent hero.
Their entiro material, (except the nails
which aro comparatively a small item),
could bo furnished here also. They have
been using bass wood for tho soles, but
find that yellow cotton wood is an ex
cellent kind of wood for the purpose,
and this will bo used hereafter. The
leather is obtained from the tannery at
Lincoln and could just as well bo fur
nished hero at Columbus by some good
man who would find that industry pay
him. One of tho great inducements for
starting a factory is that it incidentJilly
helps all others.

The Journal, for three months legin
ning with May 9th, has been ordered
sent to one thousand persons whoso
names have been furnished us by busi

the general interests of tho city. Those

having themselves ordered it), will know
by this that no pay will bo asked of them
for tho same.

any of your friends hero or hereabouts,

to the board of trade or any banker, or
send for any special information wanted
to tho editor of tho Journal.

There have been two serious mishaps
at railroad crossing which might have

hoar tho whistle until too late to retreat;
they crossed in safety but when a few
feet from tho track the axlo or tho bug
gy broke; had it dropped on tho track
thoy might have been killed, as tho train
was so close it could not bo stopped.
Fortunately Mr. Anderson w;us at work
close by; he helped to repair damage
and they returned homo. Mr. Sam
Webb was working near tho track when
his horses became frightened at a pass

then ran away; his brother caught them
and returned to find Sam insensible.
