- Tho marriage of John F. Dineen
and Miss Ella Quinn at the Franciscan

largest assemblages the church ever

of over forty members attended the ser

companied the couple to the home of
the bride's parents northeast of the city,
where a hall had leen erected for guests
who cared to indulge in dancing.
-President John S. Freeman presided
at the Fanners' Union Saturday. A
petition to the state 1-oard of transpor
tation, prepared !y a joint committee of
the Board of Trade and the Farmers
Union and consisting of Messrs. Free
man. Wells, Swartsley, North. Bariiiim.
Schnpbach and Segelke. was submitted
and adopted and immediate action urged
thereon. It calls for a reduction to a
reasonable sum. of the rate for shipping
cattle from this station to South Omaha,
it now leing $29 a car. The Union ad
journed to the first Saturday in Sep
tember. A good many people have the mis
taken notion that about all of an asses
sor's duty is to write down the value of
property as given him by the owner of
the same. It is the owner's duty to list
the property, but it is the special pre
rogative of the assessor to affix the value
for tax purposes. Then youjan look at
the values afterwards, and if not just, as
compared with those of your neighbors,
you can make that showing before the
board of equalization. Don't make the
mistake of thinking the assessor does
nothing but write the values as given
by the owner.
A practical-minded Lincoln man has
this to say in regard to a scheme that
has leen many times soken of, but
never seriously considered, as yet: 'A
canal can be dug from Columbus to Lin
coln giving a fall of thirty-eight feet.
The water can be used first for turning
the wheels of factories. After that it
will do to supply the city for domestic
purposes, and what is left will form a
fine lake. The whole thing can lie done
for lfi0,000. and it will be the biggest
thing in Lincoln." We may add to this
that water from the Loup will be a great
improvement upon any in the region of
Salt creek. The short of it is, when you
want anything good, come to Columbus
or Platte county, after it.
-It seems that the canning business
is doing pretty well in the west, at least
in Nebraska, when prof-erly conducted.
At Blair, at a public meeting $10,l00
was subscrilied, and the factory built in
ninety days thereafter. This year, says
the Pilot, over l.UOO.000 cans (seventy
two car loads of canned goods i. were
packed by the Blair canning factory.
This is a very good showing for a town
not so large as Columbus, with citizens
not nearly so wealthy as the Columbus
aggregation, and it shows what can lie
done by concerted action. For the per
manent upbuilding of a town there is
nothing like factories which work up
raw material raised in the neighborhood
and by the sale of manufactured goods,
bring money from afar.
- II. C. Bean is nearly through mak
ing his rounds as assessor for Columbus
township. The assessment is lower than
last year, both land and personal prop
erty. The assessment on land has
always been too high in comparison
with other townships. At the meeting
of the assessors, March 18, the value on
land was fixed at $1 to $10 an acre. The
average for Columbus township im
proved land, last year, was $5.60: unim
proved $4.38. This is reckoned to lie
about one-fifth the real cash value. If
all the assessors throughout the state,
would place the value as directed by
law, our per cent of taxation would ap
pear very low. But uniformity is equal
ity iu this respect, and unless all obey
the law strictly, great injustice would be
done to the faithful ones.
The alliance will make a very serious
mistake by starting into the mercantile
business. There is considerable avail
able history of such attempts, even in
this section of Nebraska. Some Butler
county people had a specially interesting
experience. The truth is that if mem
bers of the alliance will make up their
orders for groceries, dry goods, farm im
plements, newspapers and what-not and
place them in a body, with the home
dealers who give them the best terms,
they will find themselves better off
financially than by either starting a
store of their own, or by dealing with
those who live at a distance. Take, for
instance, your home grocer: he can af
ford to and will, sell you a barrel of
sugar of any grade, cheaper than you
can get it by the other process. Take
I your money and try it

J. W. Gregory of Garden City. Kan
sas, has been appointed division field
agent of the aretesian wells investiga
tion, department of agriculture, the pur
pose of which is to "ascertain the proper
locations for artesian wells for irrigating
purposes between the 97th meridian and
the foot-hills of the Rocky mountains."
He wishes to have "information of the
location (section, town and range, if
possible) of every boring for deep water
ever made in the district, whether water
was obtained thereby or not, and of
every important spring or deep pool fed
from subterranean sources to be found
within the limits defined. If those who
have sunk such wells, or have an inti
mate knowledge of any such, or who can
give full particulars of important springs
will send pame and address to me at
once, it will aid materially in the work."
This may be a matter of more than usu
al interest to this section of Nebraska.
We are directly in line between the ar
tesian wells in Dakota, and the one at
Lincoln, and it is not only possible, but
highly probable that by a little effort we
may be successful here. A. W. Lnw-
rence, years ago. iu boring for a well on
J. P. Becker's farm near this city, struck
a vein that sent the water some fort v
feet, but lacking sit feet of bringing it
to the surface. Such facts as this may
lie of interest to Mr. Gregory, and fur
ther the --natter entrusted to him.
At the meeting of Baker Post Sat

thority to call other comrades of the
Post to their, assistance. A special fea

usual course, and may prove very inter

bonds "to one or the other of two

of the bonds and applied to be made
party defendant, to maintain the validi
ty of the bonds. The state set up as
defense that if there was just ground for
questioning the validity of the bonds, it
should have been done liefore they were
issued. The decision of the court is that
the bonds were voidable, and if any
proper party had applied for an injunc
tion before the bonds had been certified
to by the state officials and sold to bona
fide holders, the issue would have been
void. Platte county has been at no ex

About twelve o'clock last Tuesday
night as C. W. McCune, local editor of
the Telegram, was making his rounds
gathering naws for his paper, and just
after coining out of J. B. Delsman's
store, he was assailed by Walter Caffrey
who called him a vile name and struck
him twice with his fist. McCune started
to run, but at Vogel's restaurant was
overtaken by Caffrey and again assault
ed, and doubtless knocked down and
kicked. His cries for help were not re
sponded to by Win. Elston, Tom Cas
sion. Joe Smith and Maynard Elston,
who were near by and who. McCune
thought, were all after him. and intend
ed to murder him. Hugh Hughes heard
the cries for help and came to the as
sistance of McCune, calling upon the
crowd to help him. but none came ex
cept Will Elston. when the assault was
The whole crowd were arraigned the

Caffrey was arraigned Monday liefore
Police Judge Brindley, on a charge of
disturbing the peace, plead guilty and
was fined $10 and costs. The fine

The alleged provocation of the assault
wan a paragraph which appeared in the
Telegram of April 22d, refering to
Caffrey as "a shorthand reporter in a
livery stable who performs hit clerical
work with a pitchfork," and further de
tailing a saloon row in which the para
graph alleged Caffrey had taken a prin
Caffrey says that he, as hack driver,
was with a company of youug men who
had been drinking, that McCune hud
joined the party and drank with them,
and that the others, when the saloon
keejier threatened to put Caffrey out.
said they would go, too, if Caffroy waa
put out but Caffrey was singled out for
newspaper mention by McCune, and
this fact angered him.
Of course this is uo justification for
the assault, which McCune, at tho time,
considering all the circumstances, re
garded as murderous. It only shows
that while one was " smart." so to speak,
with his pencil, and apt at calling nick
names, the other was likewise "smart"
with his tongue and his fists.
But such affairs are to lie deprecated
and discouraged. The proper freedom
of tho press is of vital importance to a
government by the people, and its rep
resentatives should be accorded the
utmost limit consistent with the public
welfare, and young men and old, too. for
that matter, should lie careful how they
attack reporters, with murderous weap
ons or with murderous intent,
as the assailed would be fully justified
in defending himself to the utmost- a
thing they generally do.
