We hear of several aspirants already

The Argus of this placo is now advo
cating the election of n democrat to the
United States senate. To some of the
people's party hereabouts, who have
looked to the Argus for political light
and guidance, this seems a quoor freak,
seeing that the independents have 54 of
the 133 votes on joint ballot, lacking
only 13, while the democrats havo but 17.

Tbo Alonzo Hatch entertainment,
under the auspices of the Episcopal
church, drew a large audience to the
Opera House Saturday evening. The
whole entertainment was good; each
selection was enthusiastically received
by the audience. Alonzo Hatch was
especially entertaining with his beauti
ful tenor voice, both in solos and quar
tettes. The trineopticon views were in
structive as well as entertaining.
One of the most pleasing and suc

at the First Congregational church by

of excellent character and their voices

George Lehman of this city and a
Chicago partner, William Rosa, travel
ling salesman for J. V. Farwell, will
shortly begin the erection of a hotel in
Chicago, within ten blocks of the main
entrance to Columbian Fair grounds.
The house will contain about 130 rooms,
and will be conducted on the European
plan. We believe this will prove a good
investment for Mr. Lehman, as he is
personally very well and favorably known
to many who will doubtless hunt up his
Chicago hotel, when at the Fair.
Monday, near noon, W. T. Allen,
engineer in tho U. P. yards, having a
light road engine that didn't work good,
made two unsuccessful attempts to push
a six-car coal train, up the incline, aj; the
chute. The third time there was juBt a
little too much power exerted and one
car went off at the end, swayed a-bit and
fell to tho ground, a distance of some
twenty feet, mashing the car and spilling
the coal, but doing no further damace.

A. L. Bixby of the Lincoln Journal
was in tho city several days the past
week, preparing to movo his family and

nal. Wo think that tho Colonel has now
struck his gait and he certainly is addiag
every day to the value of the great news
paper on which bo is now at work. We
look to see our own 8tate Journal be
come more famous for humor now than
did the Burlington Hnwkeye with Frank

the funny man. Brother Bixby is a

R. Y. Lisco, successor to John C.
Byrnes as supervisor of Columbus town
ship, will make one of the very best of
our county legislators. Ho is one of
those men who believes in doing his duty
under all circumstances. A tax-payer
himself, he will doubtless take a lively
interest in all questions affecting the
rate of taxation. He has had experience
enough in public matters to convince
him that good hard common-sense, a de
sire to do right and a knowledge of an
official's duties under the law are the
essential features which the public like
to see manifest in those who serve them.
J. W. Liles, who lives in Lincoln
county, and within ten miles of North
Platte, came here last week, having ship
ped to this point for sale, a car load of
potatoes of his own raising. The Jour
nal remembers the time when a crop of
anything from that section of country
would have been regarded in tho nature
of a miracle, but Mr. Liles tells us that,
with irrigation, they raise excellent crops.
Ho has raised as high as 80 buBhels of
oats to the acre. His usual crops are
wheat, oats, corn and potatoes, tho latter
a specialty, and this year he raised 5,000
The U. P. passenger train due here
at 8 o'olock yesterday morning, ran into
an open switch at Aldn, west of Grand
Island. The engineor, fireman, express
messenger, conductor and some others
whose names we have not learned, (as
we go to press, Tuesday afternoon),
wero killed. Tho wreckage train went
west at 11:30 yesterday morning. There
was a freight train on tho side track, and
into this tho passenger train ran with
such force that the engines wero turned
end to end. One passenger who arrived
here about eleven, said that it was the
worst-looking wreck he over saw.
The democracy of this vicinity will
celebrate their victor' this (Wednesday)
evening, instead ol yesterday as uetore
thought Hon. W. J. Bryan of Lincoln,
one of Nebraska's present members in
congress, and who has been elected as
hie own successor, is announced to be
present for sure and make a speech in
the Opera House. Excursion trains will
be run on the branch roads. Everybody
is invited, and the democratic flambeau
clubs of tho region round about are all
expected to be here, the Schuyler club
to form a special escort for the speakers.
Republicans will, of course, bo welcomed

Rev. Dr. Honrioh of Platte Center
paseed through the city Friday, homo
from his work an one of tho committee
of six of the German Baptist church for
the location of a church college. Their
choice was limited to Fremont and Hast
ings, both of which places wore visited
by the committee, Fremont having offer
ed a donation of 816,000, Hastings 325,
000. The decision was made Thursday
in favor of Hastings by only one dissent
ing voto, and that wes cast by the pastor
from Fremont. A part of Hastings' do
nation is twenty-fivo acres of land. A
financial agent has been elected, and
considerable money must be raised to
put the institution upon r good footing.
Congressman-eleot Meiklejohn was
in the oity Thursday, and receivod the
congratulations of his many friends who
had not seen him since tho election. Tiie
Journal is sincere in tho conviction that
eVery man electod to congress and to tho
presidency should bo relieved from tho
burden of disposing of official patronage;
tho proper duties of those positions, con
scientiously performed, are fully cufii
cient for the average mortal, without tho
clamor and worry of appointments. Wo
aro truly sorry that a republican con
gressman from this district starts in with
a congress against him, but if any repub
lican can blazo his way through the
democratic woods and retnrn again O.
K., it is Meiklejohn.
J. G. Smiley of Hampton, Nebraska,
was in tho city Thursday conferring with
cattle-raisers and dealers in regard to his
dipping device for getting rid of vermin,
mange, &c. His patent has stood tho
test of practical worth, has already saved
several persons, hundreds of dollars, in
the improved condition of their cattle,
and those who havo need of such an ap
pliance would do well to correspond with
him. Ho has sold four of his appliances
to largo dealers in Polk connty, and ex
pects to put one up at Clarks. He is
just starting out, and wo only do him
justice, in saying this is not an adver
tisement paid for by him, but an expres
sion of tho Journal, in the interest of
cattlo-raisers who wish to be in tho front
rank that's tho kind that read Tnr.
R. Kummer has entered into con
tract with the Mamnerchor for a five
years' lease of his two buildings on
Eleventh street, that is, tho ono they
havo occupied the last thirteen years
and the ono to bo erected east of and
connected with it. Fauble Brothers
have just completed a brick foundation
for the new building, and work will be
pushed forward as rapidly as the weath
er will permit, the new lease beginning
Jan. 1st, "93. The new structure is to be
32x56 feet, with all conveniences for tho
use of tho Mamnerchor wardrobe room,
stage, &c. The grounds will be enclosed
by a high closo fence, and trees planted
for shade. The Mamnerchor have paid
Mr. Kummer 82300 rent in the last thir
teen years, and the new lease runs at
8800 a year, with privilege of renewal.
E. W. Foster, agent for an Indian
tribe at Yankton, S. D., is here looking
after a missing Indian boy. About two
weeks ego four boys of his tribe, who
were sent to school at Genoa, ran away
with the intention of returning to their
tribe in Yankton. They made their way
the first night to a point about five miles
southwest of here and put up in a straw
stack, where they remained tho next day.
Here thoy lost one of their number.
The boys said when they arrived at tho
agency thHt they thought he had boon
shot, as they had been driven from tho
straw stack by a party of men who had
guns and fired at tho missing boy, as
they thought who was separated from
them. Tho threo searched for their
comrade but could not find him so they
went on to the agency. The agent has
two Indian boys with him, ono of them
being one of the runaway party, and is
hero for tho purpose of investigating
the matter. And it should bo thor
oughly investigated. The boys were
about 16 years of age. Leigh World.
A complaint has reached the ear of
The Journal, and it may be well enough
to givoit publication and have dono with
it. The game. Bhindy or "shinny" has
come greatly in vogue again among tho
boys, but they don't have tho old-timo
appliances, of round wooden ball and a
neatly-formed club, but piok up any old
tin-can and any sort of a stick, so'it is
long enough, and go ahead, 3hinnying
for dear life. It 6ecms really a philoso
phical fact that tho fun to be had out of
an athletic game is duly and exactly pro
portioned to the degree of danger inci
dent Nobody, not even tho citizen who
called our attention to this matter, de
sires to curtail in tho least tho innocent
sport of tho boys, but vheu they get into
tho streotewhero Indies and little chil
dren are passing, and send their battered
tin-can allying, it looks so dangerous that
it is worthy of mention, hence comes tho

Louise Guthrie, Edith Keeler. aud a
paper read by Mr. Leavy on, "Intellec
tual and Nocial culture necessary for
teachers." Discussion of tho paper fol
lowed. Mr. Leavy, principal of tho First ward
school, called the attention of tho asso
ciation to a communication in The Jour
nal of Nov. 9th, in which the rules of
the association wero characterized as
cast-iron, his main objection seeming to
bo that The Journal printed the com
munication, as received. He didn't ven
ture to discuss the merits of the rules,
Mr. Scott eitv suneriittentleut. of tlin
schools, next took tho floor, and sub
stantially made the same objection.
Mr. Schnider of Duncan didn't see anv
cause for tronblo; tho bost way was not
to pay any attention to it in tho asso
Mr. McClement thought that tho com
munication might do more good than
harm to the association, as it would
attract attention to their proceedings
and might bring out more teachers to
Miss Martha Turner, of The Journal,
who was present, said that our columns
were accessible to any who wished to
answer the communication.
We would add right here that The
Journal will print any communication
on public matters, of interest to half a
dozen people, when the same comes to
us in fair shape. If any ono else wishes
to reply, they are wolcomo on the same
terms. That is just what we are here for
Tho road of the farmer to market, to
mill, to railroad station, post-office and
the road of his childreu to school is the
beginning of traffic, and when roads aro
good, and kept good, they are not only
one of the evidences of thrift they aro
part and parcel of the thrift. Other
things being equal, the market town or
city which has the best highways leading
thereto has the best trado hence tho
road question is of vital importance to
merchants and townsmen of all classes.
Every section has its own road material
with which to work somo stone, 6ome
gravely the cities, wooden blocks, brick,
&c Nebraska, when the prairie was un
plowed and you could turn ont on now
sod any time, had the best natural roads
in the world.. Under present conditions,
the roads here must be looked after, and
this supervision should be made a matter
of study, and a business, and put into
the hands of capable men. The bed of
tho road should be rounding, and high
enough in the middle tc turn the water
into tho ditches; these should be so
arranged as to readily carry the water
into the natural water ohannels. Allen
Gcrrard, in tho Looking Glass has the
following to say of a material adapted to
use here, and also a very sensible sugges
tion in regard lo wagons: "But that
nature has not done it all, even here, is
true, and tho present revival of interest
in good roads causes us to look about for
material with which to mako our roads.
We are of tho opinion that a road well
ballasted with burnt clay, sufficiently
rounded to prevent water standing above
it, would give us as good roads as can be
mada for our purposes and by far the
cheapest. With wide tired wagons and
with the front axle just long enough so
tho hind wheels come insido tho traok of
the front wheels but little work would
be required to keep them level. Wo see
petitions to congress in the interest of a
good road exhibit at the world's fair are
being circulated. If there is anything
done in that lino Nebraska should have
a section of. burnt clay road on exhibi
tion, and might well havo a wagon with
wido tiro made of doublo T iron, the
feloe between tho flange and tho tire
bolted together instead of welded, with
tho foro wheels tracking outside the
hind. Every farmer would see tho utili
ty of the wagon and the road."
Did you over stop to think that the
western peoplo are up with tho times
and want now things as soon as they
are out? Do you remember we have
been iu Columbus only two years and
that we turn oar stock twico a year, and
our goods aro all new and of modern
style? Do you know we carry the
largest stock to select from? We know
our prieeB are right, becauso our sales
have nearly doubled the last six months.

If you live on the upland and have no
tame meadow, put off seeding until next
spring and no longer. If -you raise bar
ley, sow timothy and clover with that
grain, as it is taken from tho ground
early, thus giving the tender plants the
benefit of the air and sunlight, after
which a rapid growth will bo made. If
you do not raise barley, then sow your
grass seed with wheat or oats, either or
b which will give you a stand of grain if
the season is favorable.

in starvation lots for sometime, and then

in the stalks more than an hour each

don't neglect an abundance of pure
water, at least twice a day.
