was lamed for life and his team killed,
was finally disposed of in the supreme
court last week. At the first jury trial,
the verdict was $5,500 for O'Donnell, the
second $5,000. The case has been twice
to the supreme court, and we learn that
his is the end of it
"Some Adopted Americans" is the
title of an article in the November num
ber of the American Magazine. This
article was prepared by the editor of the
Journalist, Mr. Allen Forman, who has
made a careful study of the lower-class
immigrants and tenement-house dwell
ers of New York city. Mr. Forman has
not been a mere casual observer, but has
lived in these densely-populated tene
ments, and is, therefore, competent to
give strong and graphic pictures of the
mode of life of these poor people with
out any aid from his imagination.
Now that the election is over the
Nebraska press gang can give more time
and attention to little iteni6 showing the
beauties of coming west and growing up
with the country. The following from
the Humphrey Independent is a very
good one, for this fall: "While distribu
ting packages of tickets the first of the
week, we stopped at the farm of R E
Jones of St Bernard, and was pleased
to see the work of a successful farmer.
Mr. Jones, when he came to Platte coun
ty, worked out by the month. He now
has 160 acres of land; has 2,000 bushels
of corn in the crib, husked by himself
and wife, not being able to find help,
and is about half done. He has money
out at interest, and will, this year sell
thirteen hundred dollars worth of hogs.
Everything about his place speaks of
thriftconomy and aprogressive farmer."

We are told that there is a democrat
of this city who boasts of having "voted"
a man who had no right to cast a ballot
in this city; also that there are numbers
of democrats who are so opposed to this
man's way of "running" things that
they have declared they will hereafter
vote against every man he strives to
elect We think that Chairman Qnay
of the national republican committee
made the master stroke of the campaign
when he offered $25,000 reward for con
viction of the various crimes against the
election laws in the city of New York,
and republicans everywhere will do the
proper thing if they will let it be under
stood and known that every case will be
prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
It is not a partisan matter; it concerns
every good citizen, whatever his party
predilections may be, bis honest vote
may, at any time, be nullified by one of
these chaps, and his right of ballot go
for naught Every voter owes it to his
own sense of right to discountenance
and help to punish according to law any
scoundrel of either political party who
commits or attempts or to com
mit a fraud upon the election. The
crime referred to in the first of this par
agraph, if committed, is punishable by
a fine of $50 to $500 and imprisonment
in the county jail not more than six
But a short time ago the little son
of M. E. Clother, was taken ill, it wasn't
considered very bad at first but it grew
worse from day to day; Dr. O'Key and
also Dr. Martyn of Columbus were call

possible to cure the little fellow, but all
of no avail He grew worse from the
start, and lingered until Sunday even

To rejoice over success is one of the
privileges of the human family that it
seldom foregoes, and republicans have
been no exception during the past week.
Monday afternoon the republican la
dies of the city, with the party emblem,
the red, white and blue, abundantly dis
played on hat and carriage and wheels
and harness and horses, formed a very
nice procession, driving through the
principal streets of the city. It was a
unique, brilliant, splendid display.
In the evening, at dusk, the anvils be
gan to roar, the bonfires to blaze and the
procession to gather, the air resounding
with music from the two brass bands,
the drum corps band and with all other
kinds of noises that could be thought of,
old men in the procession adding to the
clamor by blowing loud, toy tin horns,
and in all pleasant, harmless ways be
coming boys again, in their gladness.
The first line of march was in conduct
ing Dr. Stillman (a democrat) at the tail
end of a toy wheelbarrow, wheeling a
pound of cheese to E. D. Fttzpatrick's
house, in answer to a wager. The Doc
tor's political friends along Nebraska
Ave. had all illuminated their dwellings
to facilitate the Doctor's journey. The
procession, with their music and noise,
their lights and their transparencies
meandered through the principal streets,
bringing np at Fitzpatrick's Hall, where
the speaking was done. Among the de
vices on the transparencies were: Good-
by, free trade. Good-by, Mills bill.
Cleveland carried Platte county, Utah,
Texas and England. The people vetoed
Grover. Soldiers' widows and orphans
will now have a friend in the White
House. Turn the rascals out and count
the money. McShane's boodle campaign
busted. North and South Dakota will
now come in. Hensley and Grover can
now go fishing to Canada. How much
for the bony pony? "Dan'l, there is a
terrible surplus of republican votes."
Grover. No more use for confederate
brigadiers. 239. Morton the friend of
the poor man. Private Tip "New York
will go 40,000 for Cleveland." Brice.
Honest John M. Thayer got there. Our
laborers eat meat The American wage
earner is happy now. Harrison means
protection. Victory! Democracy, pro
hibition, anti-prohibition and England
are busted. Democracy and Mills bill
scraped out Ask McTeggart what time
it is. When Johnny (Higgins) comes
marching home again! Gluck and Gro
ver, they couldn't lose, no, no, no. Ba
ker lost his grip by taking advice from
private tip. Hurrah for the Irish re
publicans. At the hall, which was crowded to
overflowing, several gentlemen were
called upon by the chairman, G. W.
Barnhart, for short speeches, and re
sponded briefly, each heartily congratu
lating tho party upon the grand success
of the campaign and contributing a sen
timent or an incident to the interest of
the occasion: L. Gerrard said that a day
or so after election he met J. E. North
who said "this suspense is terrible"
Gerrard said it might be to democrats,
but republicans took it very easy. Col.
M. Whitmoyer said he had studied over
the matter a good deal, but could not
see how it is that the people would vote
for the democratic party which had
tried to destroy the nation. C. J. Gar
low told how his little state had gone
republican the first time since its birth;
West Virginia, rocked in the cradle of
democracy, nourished by the confedera
cy, had broken the chain which bound
it to the solid south. J. M. McFarland
followed in the same strain. Carl Kra
mer made some jocular allusions to the
democratic campaign in this county and
E. D. Fitzpatrick declared he had al
ways voted for the president elect.
Altogether the jubilation was one long
to be remembered.
Miss Metz's Concert.
The entertainment given by E. Metz
was well attended and did the young
lady great credit We hope she will give
us another such treat in the near future.
The programme was commenced by a
piano duet by Misses E. Metz and S.
Fitzpatrick. The piece was an imitation
of sleigh bells and showed that the
young ladies have had good training as
well as natural talent The Arion Quar
tette sang two selections, the last one
cut short by the disturbance of some
small boys. Just as the gentlemen made
their appearance one of the small boys
gave a long low whistle of astonishment;
we cannot say what were the boys
thoughts, but they so disfigured the
faces of the singers that after several
attempts at singing the audience were
convulsed with laughter. WTe give the
quartette credit for singing the verse
through before leaving the stage.though.
A trio played by three girls was some
thing new and was very well received.
Grace Geer recited a selection from Lord
Macaulay; Miss Geer is naturally grace
ful on the stage and always pleases her
hearers. The song of Bert Coolidge,
joined by the chorus of girls and boys,
was a pretty sight. The Msennerchor
sang well, as they always do. The little
"fisher maidens" sang very nice together.
Misses Geer and North recited a medley,
their voices blending admirably. Mazerk
(Anartelle) by Wilk Spdice and Elsie
Morse at one piano and Mary Bremer
and Nettie Anderson at another, was the
first of the kind we have had here and
was very well received.
Congregational S. S. Convention.
The S. S. convention of the Columbus
Association of Congregational churches
will meet in this city, Nov. 20th and 21st
The programme, as prepared and print
ed, is very interesting, and promises to
be more than usually instructive. Among
the topics are: A model programme;
Hor to keep the young men; S. S. con
certs; Pastor's and parent's relations to
8. S.; Primary teaching; Training teach
ers; Preparation essential to successful
teaching; Individual faithfulness; Re
sults and how to secure them; Benevo
lence. We notice that Mrs. D.D.Pickett,
Mrs. O. V. Bice, Mrs. C. G. Hickok and
Mrs. A. C. Ballou of this city have prom
nent places on the programme.
