Jako Thomas was tho name of tho
Schuyler policeman who was shot ono

center of tho abdomen. Thomas fired
at the fellow but missed him. The

been seen here since the shooting.

Tho committee on the canal scheme
seem to be working for different ends.
Some are working for water power only
while others are working for irrigation
only, and others are talking irrigation
and power both. Certainly if we have
irrigation what a chango there will be
for the bettor! There are today straw
berry patches iu the neighborhood of
Columbus that, conld they have been
irrigated four weeks ago, would have
yielded a splendid crop. One can
imagine what the result would bo taking
everything we raise into consideration.
And when we get the ditch made and
all of this land so we can irrigate it the
factories and mills will seek the power,

R. P. Schofield says that the thieves
that had been stealing hogs from the
Winslow place, evidently were scared off
the last night they were there by a
young man who came home lata They
left a box especially constructed for
"swiping" hogs; it is 18 inches wide, 20
high and 3 feet long, with handles
nailed on each side so that two men
standing between at the ends could
carry the hog; straps are also arranged
so that one man could carry it on his
shoulders if the weight wasn't too mncli
for him. Thero is also a falee bottom
and an endgate, and the plan of capture
is plainly evident: the box is put down
over thehog, the false bottom adjusted
and fastened, and the "plunder" carried
off to the wagon. Mr. Schofield thinks
they lost 20 to 25 hogs during the winter,
and that only one or two at a time were
taken. Asked for other items of interest,
Mr. Schofield said that last September
Mr. Winslow purchased GOO hogs for
81,500, which they sold this spring for
$."3,800. They have 22 acres of alfalfa 5
to G inches high with roots 10 inches.
.The Quill has this to say of the out
fit that the Schuyler officers were after
up here last week: "Just before going
to press we learned that some horse
traders, who were camped near here and
were working between Columbus and
North Bend, stole a number of sets of
harness on Wednesday night, among the
lot being a set of Geo. Schuessler's and
one set of C. E. Mapes' at Rodgers.
They tracked the outfit this way and
Schuessler, Storms and Sheriff Kroeger
went on till near Columbus, where they
found the outfit and arrested three men
and a woman. Mr. Schuessler on the
way down found a dozen sets of harness
under a small culvert this side of Co
lumbus. Several sets were taken from
Schuyler. When near Schuyler, the
horse traders' team in which the sheriff
and Storms were, turned north at a
rapid rate and Schuessler, supposing
that the villians had overcome our men
and were escaping, came on in and re
ported. A number of citizens armed
and drove out in pursuit, but found they
had only turned north to go to the fair
grounds where their stock was. This is
a nam omnc auo ine penitentiary is tne
place for them. It was a neat capture.

THE HIGH SCHOOL.
The Tenth Aminiil Commencement Attended
by Hundreds of Interested Spectators.
Friday evening tho opera house was
crowded, as it usually is, when the
youth of our public schools are con
cerned in the exercises.
The stago was fitly docorated for the
occasion, and on tho east side were
members of the school board, on the
west side, Mrs. Merrill, principal of the
high school. As the graduates spoke
their pieces they took seats in Hue with
their teacher, Mrs. Merrill.
The orchestra for the occasion was,
leader, E. Pohl, 1st violin; Charles
Miller and Frank Noel, 2d violins; S. E.
Marty, clarinet; A. Sauer, flute; Frank
Stovicek, cornet; John Stovicek, trom
bone; A. Boettcher, bass viol. They
played four selections, which were high
ly appreciated by tho audience.
After an overture by the orchestra,
Rev. Bross asked divino blessing upon
The salutatory by Miss Cora B. Scott
contained sentiments worthy the young
lady, and her manner upon the stage
certainly showed her native good sense.
"The Voyage of Life," which wa3 tho
theme of hor discourse, had many bright
W. H. Lehman, whose oration was on
the subject, "The Young American,"
presented a fino appearance on the stage,
was deliberate, self-possessed yet ani
mated, and gave evidence that when cut
loose from the formalities of such an
occasion and called upon in actual
affairs of life to do his part, with that
practice which "makes perfect," he will
be a decided success.
Miss Beulah M. Wheelor.by the treat
ment of her thome, "We Build our own
Monuments," as well as by her manner
on the stage, evidenced that she fully
appreciated tho truth of the sentiment,
a very appropriate subject of thought
and discourse by the youth of America.
One could imagine that Anna Dickenson
the famous political orator, might have
been in her youth much 6uch a girl as
Miss Harriet M. Scofield's theme
"Home, Sweet Home," struck a respon
sive chord in the hearts of her listeners,
and evidenced ability out of tho or
dinary, as to tho matter of her oration,
especially. The close of it was accom
panied by the well-known tune in piano
and violin duet in the distance.
W. J. Rickly selected a subject inter
esting to every intelligent person of
these times, and of whom and his
achievements we cannot hear too much,
"The Wizard of Menlo Park." His man
ner was self-possessed, enunciation clear
and emphasis good.
Miss Katherino M. Speice showed
good common sense in the preparation
of her oration, and her treatment of the
theme, "Man is a Progressive Being,"
did justice to her as a student, and gave
promise of her future worth.
Miss Grace M. Clark, in the valedic
tory, showed unusual decisiveness for
one so young, a good use of language,
and a commanding, penetrating voice.
In her manner, and especially when ad
dressing the other graduates, one could
readily imagine, for the moment, that
it was a customary occasion with her.
Sup't Scott then delivered the address
to the class, and Secretary Taylor, in
the absence of President Henry, after
giving a summary of facts in regard to
the schools (for which we cannot now
find space), awarded the diplomas.

The beautiful church, finely decorated
with flowers, nature's emblems of
beauty, joy, sweetness and innocence,
together with the presence of hosts of
invited friends to wish them joy in the
life's voyage upon which they were
about to embark, was sufficient to bring
a glow of happiness to the countenances
of the happy couple.
Miss Elsie Morse played an overture
by Mendelssohn while the bride and her
brother-in-law, H. I. Murdock, ap

Rer. Elliott followed with a feeling
address, which we have not space to re
produce, as we would like to do. After
saying that a kind providence had
spared us another year, and that wo
had come to decorate the last resting
place of 6oldiers, firemen, friends and
kindred, but pre-eminentlv in honor of
the defenders of the country, he declared
that as nations have no existence be

should, as far as possible, render to
their subjects that recompense which
justice, honor and devotion demand.
Honor to wh6m honor is due, and these
representatives of ours now in the silent
tomb, yet speak in the living reality
which we enjoy in all this great and free
nation. The spirit that actuated them
was "Give me liberty, or give me death."
They stood between you and oppression;
they fought battles for you; maintained
your government and presorved your
The tribute paid to true worth must
express high appreciation, deep grati
tude and "fervent devotion to principle.
The remainder of the address was
mainly devoted to the idea that war is
not the main or proper occupation of
nations, but comes aright only as an
incident in the necessities of peace. We
are not warriors. We are a peace
loving people. We will not allow the
sword to govern us. Conquest is not
our ambition. Rome meant law; Greece.

of every man's conscience. This, our

that our sons and daughters may be

He then paid a glowing tribute to the
firemen, who like soldiers, are subject to
emergency calls, and who count no risk
too great when the property and lives of
their fellow-citizens are endangered by
fire, and who, in tho discharge of duty
aro sometimes caught by tho devouring
flames, or, escaping cremation, survive
with blistered hands and faces, or

"Memorial Day," a recitation bv Ruby
Young; "In tho Battle," by Charles
NVoosley; "Marching Through Georgia,"
sung by thirteen pupils of tho Third
ward school, followed the oration. Tho
Sons of Veterans Drum Corps played
appropriate music preceding the address
of Charles A. Brindley in honor of "the
The salient sentiments of the address
were that there is no class of men whose
confidence and respect i'b more to be
prized than that of the soldiers who, in
tho great war from 'Gl to '65, upheld the
loved banner of our country and brought
it homo in honor. Other things being
equal our soldiers are our most worthy
citizens, and "I havo no sympathy," ho
said, "for auy man who would havo our
government deal sparingly with our
soldiers or their widows in their needs."
You veterans of tho Civil war have
served your country faithfully when she
most needed your services, and wo honor
you for it. Neither are they less hon
ored who shall bear through life the
marks of wounds and sufferings. No
badge or epaulette is so honorable as
wounds received in a good cause.
Crowds give way to cripples, and un
cover in the presence of feebleness and
helplessness. Children pause in their
noisy games, and honor those whoso
hands can work no more and whoso feet
are no longer ablo to march.
Mr. Brindley paid a well-deserved
tribute to the private soldier, who, with
ont hope of reward and no other incen
tive than a consciousness or right, en
countered hardships and suffered priva
tions. Also to the women, angels of
peace and joy, whether at home or on
battle fields and in hospitals, caring for
the wounded, sick and dying.
Of the two and a half millions of men
who responded to tho nation's call, 300
000 gave up their lives that the nation
might live. In tho seventy national
cemeteries, no soldier's grave will be
neglected today. In Arlington cemetery
alono there are 17,000 of the soldier
dead, and 2,000 of the unknown dead
whose whitened remains were gathered
by government officials from the battle
fields of Virginia. We join in honoring
The closing sentiment of the address
was in these words: "How bright are
the honors which await those who with
fortitude and patience have endured
all things that they might save their
country from division and tho power of
Recitation, "Memorial Day," by ten
pupils of the First ward school; "The
Thousand and Thirty-seven," by Maude
Young; flags and song "Star Spangled
Banner," by First ward school closed
the exercises at the opera house.
Tho procession then re-formed and
marched to the cemetery, the two bands
discoursing appropriate music, the
different orders decorating the graves
of their dead comrades, after the firing
of the burial 6alute by Sons of Veterans
and a Bong by Ladies Relief Corps.
Tho day with its exercises will be a
sadly-pleasing memory for the old sol
diers, resident and visiting, as well as
for the large crowd present to do honor
to the memory of our heroic dead.

Editor Journal: Having heard it
stated that lecturer Sobieski was inter
rupted by me for quoting statistics de
rogatory to the liquor traffic, I feel it
my duty to explain matters to such that
did not attend the lecture.
Mr. Sobieski was not interrupted when
making quotations, but when he made
the broad and sweeping assertion that
the prohibition party was cheated out
of over 40,000 votes at the election in
1890, when the proposed prohibition
amendment to the constitution was
This assertion implied an accusation
of the men acting as judges and clerks
of that election whose duty it was to
duly receive, record and count the votes
To say that the prohibition party was
cheated ont of 40,000 votes is equivalent
to saying that those men had stuffed
the ballot boxes, committed fraud and
violated their official oath. The people
were then particularly careful in their
choice, and circumspect in their judg
ment of the men chosen to perform the
functions of judges and clerks, it being
the sincere wish of all that the will of
I 1110 unyuniy 01 ue people buouiu pre
! vail. With very few exceptions the
citizens acting as such officers wore
honest and disinterested in the highest
sense of the word, and whose whole
record was one of honor and truth.
The result of their count was accepted
by the people as the legitimate result of
a statutory election, and to come now at
this late date and stigmatize those men,
about 7,000 in number, as ballot-box
stuffers and frauds, is a personal affront
to them and an insult to the people of
It is to be hoped that mankind will,
through the medinm of public schools
and higher educational institutions that
aro accessiblo to all, ascend to such a
state of enlightenment and moral con
dition as to make temperanco lectures a
thing of the past.
We aro very sorry that we are lacking
space this week to do justice to pupils
of this school in their graduating exer
cises. All did well, without exception,
and give promise of a splendid show of
ability when they come to tho final
graduation. Tho program was: Invoca
