In the last freshet on Shell creek
the bridge at Joseph Henggler's was
carried out, very fortunately, as it hap
pened. Mr. Henggler had gone over the
bridge in the morning, one of his boys
went over it a little before it fell, and
Mrs. Henggler had just stepped off one
end when, looking back, she saw the
structure go down. It was built about
seventeen years ago, was sixty feet
across, besides twenty feet each for the
approaches. It was thirty-five feet
above the bed of the creek. Of seven
head of cattle that fell with the bridge,
one had its ribs mashed in, and a hole
cut into the side; it is yet alive, and may
get over the injury.

Those of our Platte county readers
who have wool to sell would do well to
consider the advisability of disposing of
it at St Louis. Sell it to a home dealer,
in preference every time, because you
know then exactly what you are doing,
but if you must send off, there are sev
eral reasons why St Louis ought to be
a good market It is increasing yearly
in its receipts; it has a varied class of
buyers; this competition makes a de
mand for all grades and qualities of
wool, and insures its bringing full mar
ket value; the shipping facilities from
St Louis to all points where wool is
needed, are unexcelled; it is a quick
market gives quick returns. Thtse are
some of the good points of the St. Iouis
market as set forth by S. Bienenstok
- C. D. Hazen came down Saturday
week with Mr. and Mrs. Doc. Beebe from
St Paul and are visiting friends here.
Our readers will remember that months
ago, Doc. fell from the top of a thirty
six foot wind mill tower to the ground,
almost miraculously escaping death, but
being considerably disabled. Mr. Hazen
has lieen staying with him the past
seveu months. Mr. Hazen speaks of a
number of people formerly residing in
this vicinity who are now living up the
valley, among them being Matt. Beebe,
who is superintending a butter factory
at Scotia; Al. and Ed. Stewart, Dan.

wherever it has accepted risks, with a
capital and surplus of nearly one and a
quarter million dollars and total assets
of nearly two millions are ample guar

Boone county alone the paBt two years
to the amount of $2,400.50 and given en

August Boettcher, who has leased
the Glnck building on the corner of
Eleventh and North, has consented to
stay where he is until the 1st of August,
and givo possession to Henry Ragntz &
Co., while Mr. Gluck puts up a fine, new
brick on the present site of Ragatz's
grocery and Mr. Thomas's barber shop.
The new building will be one story,
with basement, 33x80 feet, with a room
11x35 feet in the northeast corner for a
barber shop for Mr. Thomas. John
Miller vacates on the 15th we haven't
learned where he goes. When the new
building is completed Ragatz & Co. will
have one of the very finest establish
ments in the city.
Some evil minded person tried to
wreck the Norfolk and Columbus turn
around, one day last week in the big
cut just north of town, by placing about
one hundred feet of lumber, used in
building snow fence, on the track. But
fortunately the boards were not very
heavy and were knocked off or broken
by the engine, and as a consequence
did no damage. Should the party be
found out that did the deed, he will find
that placing obstructions on the railroad
track is a very expensive business.
It seems that there is a little rivalry
lietweeu Wm. Dietrichs and Leopold
Jwggi in regard to new-fangled ma
terials for the construction of sidewalks
abiuting their lots on north Eleventh
street. On what meat do these, our
Careers feed that they can go to the ash
yards of the mills and lay sidewalks
with materials of their own choosing?
By the way, where did Dietrich get the
privilege to lay a sidewalk of cinders
we don't remember ever seeing such
privilege granted him by the council.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Connor have the
heartfelt sympathy of all their acquaint

days. The funeral takes place today, at

Quarterly meeting at the Methodist
church, beginning Saturday at three
p. in., with the business meeting; preach
ing Saturday evening, Sunday, morning
and evening, by Rev. W. H, H. Pillsbury
of the First Methodist church, Grand
Island, who conducts the exercises in
the absence of the presiding elder. Rev.
Worley exchanges pulpits with Rev.
Pillsbury, for Sunday.
Thursday evening C. A. Woosley
was called from the sidewalk into the
harness shop of Dan. Faucette on Ne
braska avenue, by Mr. Faucette; who
asked him to help him into his room in
the rear of the shop. He was placed on
a bed and Dr. Martyn called in, who
pronounced his case hopeless. Mr. Fau
cette was removed the following morn
ing to the Sisters' hospital, as being the
best place to give him proper care.
Death took place at about 5 o'clock
Friday evening. Mr. Faucette had been
a resident of this vicinity for twenty
five years, and was very well known,
especially to the older citizens. He was
an industrious man and good citizen and
his departure will be sincerely mourned
by a large circle of friends. The cause
of his death was paralysis. The funeral
took place from the Methodist church
Sunday afternoon at 2, Rev. Worley
preaching the sermon, a large congrega
tion being present, including the fire
department in uniform. Mr. Faucette
was a charter member of Engine Co.

To the committee on schools was left

The superintendent was instructed to
prepare and to provide invitations to
and programs of the graduating exer
cises. We, as yet, hear no response to the
Telegram's expressed solicitude in re
gard to the political attitude of County
Judge Hensley and Sheriff Caldwell.
The Telegram's suggestion was that
they must before long choose to which
political party they will adhere. Se
riously, now, men, can't you relieve the
anxious Telegram, and let a waiting
world (including the alliance), know
where you are standing now and where
you are about to stand, in the near fu
ture? It probably won't do very well,
to imitate Judge Higgins's example aud
first accept a nomination other than
democratic, presuming upon the for
bearance of the old-line democrats to
play second-fiddle, they don't like to
do that in old Platte. May lie they can't
help it this time, but it will go strongly
against the grain, and you will lie taking
risky chances. By the way, how does it
happen that the Telegram appears anx
ious aliont Hensley and Caldwell, and
not about Speice, Phillips and Rossiter?
Considerable objection is being
made to the employment of A. B.
Hughes for three years more as princi
pal of the Schuyler schools. The Quill
thinks it taking snap judgment on the
people. There are very few teachers of
great ability but are satisfied to be em
ployed by the year, depending upon con
tinned satisfactory work for continued
employment More than a little dissat
isfaction has been expressed here as to
the action of the board last year in en
tering into a contract with Superinten
dent Scott for three years, and one of
the two members who were candidates
for re-election this spring, to-wit, D. F.
Davis, was probably defeated because of
his action on the employment of Super
intendent Scott for three years; it is
also true that Carl Kramer, who was re
elected, a member of the school board,
voted against the employment of Mr.
Scott for the three years term, and was
regarded by many as really opposed to
his further continuance.
Go abroad for news. Here is an
item from the Albion Calliope, in regard
to a Platte county man:
"Hon. L L. Albert is spoken of as a
possible candidate for judge of the dis
trict court in nis uisincu nr. Aioen.
has been long and favorably known in
Boone county. He is a thoroughly com
petent lawyer, a man upright in charac
ter and of unblemished reputation. He
needs only to be known in Platte county
as he is known in this county to receive
the support of every man in his party."
The Albert referred to is the present
county attorney, who was elected to his
position by the republicans and the alli
ance. We presume (though we do not
know), that Mr. Albert would accept the
nomination for judge, if tendered him,
by the alliance, whether endorsed by the
republicans or democrats, or neither.

The matter was left with the commit

The committee on printing, consisting;
of Pollock, Gondring and Boettcher,
then made their report which, (after
leave to make a correction) was that they
recommend the city accept the proposi
tion of The Joints at and the Sentinel to
publish all the notices at one-third legal
rates for each paper, and that a like sum
be proffered for the same service to the
Weekly Telegram, thus publishing in all
three papers at the rate paid last year to
A motion was made to adopt the re
port of the committee. Phillips moved
to amend by accepting the proposition
of the Telegram; seconded by Gondring.
This proposition was to charge two-thirds
legal rates, for insertion once in a daily
Telegram, and one-third legal rate for in
sertion in weekly Telegram, thus absorb
ing the full amount appropriated for
this purpose, and providing for no pub
lication in either the republican or the
alliance newspaper of the city.
Gray believed that it was just and
proper that each of the newspapers
should be recognized in this matter, and
thought the recommendation of the
committee would give satisfaction to the
Gondring didn't think it was so much
a question of satisfaction as advertising.
He could see nothing at all in this thing
of trying to please every body. He didn't
explain how advertising in The Journal,
Sentinel and Telegram all together,
would reach fewer people than advertis
ing in the Telegram alone, or why, if
Tie Journal or Sentinel would do the
work for ouethird legal rates, the Tele
gram should be paid three times as
much. He was mistaken when he said
accepting the Telegram's bid, would
save at least one-third of the legal rates
it would use it all.
Pollock concurred with Gray in say
ing that there is no justice in inequality.
All the papers are doing what they can
for the general welfare of the people of
this community, and he wished to see
the public money, to be used for this pur
pose to be shared between them. In the
private bnsniess of the couucilmen it is
different; he certainly had nothing
against the Telegram, but he could see
no good reason why that paper should
do all this printing and the others none.
Gray moved that the matter be laid
on the table until there could be a full
council. He said he was disposed to be
entirely fair to all. We ought to consid
er the rights of all, and not try to tear
down one in order to build up another.
We can do this publishing in the three
papers and divide the fund among them;
it will not be much to each, but it will lie
Boettcher, although he had signed
the report of theoominitteeaid he hadn't
considered the matter.
A vote taken on the motion to lay on
the table resulted in u tie, the mayor
casting with the affirmative.
Gondring inquired of the mayor if a
motion to lay on the table did'nt require a
two-thirds vote, but he did'nt insist on
the proposition, and so the matter will
come up again.
