Dr. Binney, says theFullerton Jonr
nal, came near being caught in a trap on
the west Cedar bridge just north of town
on Tuesday. He drove upon the bridge

him off. His horse succeeded in breast

nothing more than a wetting.
Last week Messrs. Sheldon tt Welch
sold 10,000 bushels of corn in two and a
half days, at 50 cts. a bushel, giving their
purchasers ten months' time to pay the
same. It was quite an accommodation
to the vicinity of Monroe, where sold,
and nono were allowed to purchase more
than what thev needed for seed. The
demand for the seed was very brisk for
a little while.
The Valley Enterprise thinks they
have in that section excellent corn
enough to. seed the whole state this
season. It is certainly desirable that
seed corn bo Nebraska grown, rather
than seed even from Iowa, Kansas and
Missouri, which has at times been
planted and the first year made only a
great growth of stalks. Nebraska-grown
corn is what is wanted for seed.

Joe Krause of Genoa was in town
Thursday, tracing np a farmer by the
name of Bauman, who had been living
north of Genoa. The family suddenly
packed up their possessions and started
by wagons for Oklahoma leaving sev
eral debts behind. Joe had assisted the
family by giving them coal and grain,
which they aold and pocketed tho cash.
They were overhauled and brought back
to town Friday morning and paid Mr.
Krause what they owed him.
Somebody who didn't give his name
sent a letter to the board of supervisors
of Cuming county last week inclosing
sixty dollars, which he said was paid
him six yeara ago through nn error.
The letter was written in German, and
the money was turned over to the gen
eral fund. If all the men in all the
counties of Nebraska who are carrying
the people's money would turn it thus
into the treasuries, Nebraska could fur

Brad. Slaughter is a prominent citi

$4,000 and $5,000 fees claimed due the
government, and Slaughter says the

Henry Dearcnp living on the farm
of Andy Matins north ot town died Mon
day at 10 o'clock p. m. Mr. Dearcup
was in town Friday, and the same even
ing ho was driving chickens in his yard
and in stumbling, fell on an upturned
stick hitting him in the stomach. Hav
ing his bands in his pockets he was
unable to protect himself in the fall,
from the effects of which he died. Mr.
Dearcup leaves a wife and several chil
dren. Louis Schroiber of this city is a
brother of Mrs. Dearcup.
The Cedar Rapids Commercial says
that people who have left Nebraska to
find a better country are gradually re
turning, and quite a number of new
comers aro locating in the state. George
Keekors, who has been down in Oklaho
ma, has returned, and says that in 3000
miles of travel he found no place that
6iiited his complexion like Boone coun
ty. He has rented the farm known as
the Wright homestead, and will be in
the procession, when fortune smiles
again on Nebraska farmers.
At the meeting of the county super
visors the other day, when the matter of
aid was under consideration, Moore
asked that his name bo passed until he
could consult with the county attorney
as to the legality of the measure. Speice
suggested that he would know just as
much about it afterwards as he did now,
and to an inquiry as to the legality of
the measure, he answered that there was
no authority of law, whatever, for it.
Certainly, those who are desirous of
seeding down land again this season
should be assisted, where they are not
themselves able to do so, and The
Journal 6ees no better way than that
proposed, if carried out right (and we
suppose it will be), but it is a responsi
bility for individual members of the
board that is asking considerable of
them. Let us hope that all will be well
provided for, and that Platte county
will raise the most bountiful crops in all
I her history.

Thursday March 14, at the republican
convention held at city hall there was a
large attendance. Meeting was called
to order by Mr. Spoerry.
Temporary organization: J. N. Kilian,
chairman; 0. V. Evans, secretary.
The following resolutions were intro
duced by J. D. Stires:
Whereas, The republican party in its
natural purity, has for thirty-five years
stood as a synonym of law and order to
which the masses never appealed in vain
for justice, and
Whereas, We are appealed to today to
redeem-our city from misrule, that we
may attain to that respectability to
which we are entitled, and
Whereas, The republican party will be
held responsible for tho acts of this meet
Whereas, Where there is a difference
of opinion, majorities are more liable to
be right and should control, and
Whereas, Our united strength is nec
essary to effect success, we should agreo
to stand by and faithfully support the
nominees of this convention. Otherwise
we shall be divided into factions too
weak to accomplish anything, nnd onr
party name remain only as a monument
of onr own imbecility, the laughingstock
of our opponents and an obstruction to
those who would more worthily meet the
demands of the people. Therefore be it
Resolved. That we the representatives
of tho republican party of Columbus in

Whatever may be said of Mrs. Hattie
Wright, she is very evidently not afraid
to use a gun. Wednesday night a man
made his appearance at her place and
she says that he was the same who was
here two years ago, stole some goods at
Galley's store, offered to sell them to
Mrs. Micek in the bottom, who consulted
Mrs. Wright m- regard to the purchase
of them; sent for policemen in the mean
time, and the thief got away, not mak
ing his appearance here until Wednes
day last, when he threatened to kill Mrs.
Wright, and proceeded to put his threat
The pistol he used was doubtless a
32-caliber, which he purchased of John
He fired four shots and Mrs. Wright
two, one of hers taking effect in the arm.
Even after that arm dropped, it is said
he kept on shooting, using the unhit
arm plucky, determined to show Mrs.
Wright that she must not interfere with
his line of business theft, at her peril.
Thursday he was arraigned before
Police Judge Hudson and fined $25 and
costs; no money being forthcoming, and
his wouud needing attention, ho was
sent to the hospital for attention.
William E. Carter died March 11, at
Madison, aged 85 years, 10 months and
18 days. The Chronicle says that his
light went out gently and peacefully
and he passed away like a little child
going to sleep. His mind was richly
stored with the knowledge of men and
events of the early history of the coun
try and he kept himself well posted on
the current topics of the day np to the
time of his death. His father fonght
under General Harrison at the famous
Indian battle of Tippecanoe, which de
feated Tecumseh's brother, the prophet,
in 1811. He was a young man nt the
time Gen. Andrew Jackson was elected
president, but was a supporter of John
Quincy Adams. He voted for old Gen
eral Harrison and every whig and re
publican president from that time down.
He was personally acquainted with
Benjamin Harrison and often referred
to him as "that lioy Bonny." He was
tho father of nino children, eight of
whom are living.
To readers of The Joorxal we make
no apology for printing the following
from the Central City Nonpareil. When
you make so good a record, we shall
wish to record it:
"Saturday Mrs. Donoway, an old lady
who resides south of the court house,
celebrated her 90th birthday. To assist
in the celebration fourteen old ladies
whose ages ranged from 53 to 90 met at
Mrs. Donoway's and spent a pleasant af
ternoon. A splendid dinner was served
which was eaten with a relish. Mrs.
Donoway's daughter, a lady 55 years of
age, was one of the guests. Few people
are allowed the privilege of residing
90 years in this world of turmoil and
strife. Jefferson was president at the
time of Mrs. Donoway's birth; Napoloon,
the greatest general the world has ever
seen, was in his prime, and had never
dreamed of Waterloo, and Lincoln,
Grant and Sherman were yet unborn.
May the old lady roach the century
Two more Indians who escaped from
the Genoa school passed through here
on Sunday, stopping over night nt the
farm house of A. P. Smith, two miles
southwest of town. On Tuesday author
ities from the school were here on a
hunt for them, but at this writing they
have not been reported as apprehended.
This makes ten Indians who have passed
through here the past four months who
have escaped from the Genoa school

Miranda J. Fuller was born in Sara
toga county, New York, September 20,
1824. December 24, 1845, at Nauvoo,
Illinois, was married to Guy C. Barnum.
She leaves her aged husband and their
children: , Guy C, of Idaho; George E.;
Mrs. W. B. Doddridge of St. Louis,
Mo.; Mrs. G. W. Barnhart, Tyler, Texas;
Mrs. J. W. Lisco, Fort Worth, Texas.
Mrs. Barnum accompanied her hus
band lately on a visit south, and had not
enjoyed such good health in a long time
as on her return, but, on all human af
fairs "change" is written, and in a few
short days one whom we have been ac
customed to greet for years is silent in
death. Such need no human praise.

minutes of previous meetings they were
Councilman Oehlrioh's resignation
dated Feb. 28, "95, and to take effect
March 1, 5, was read, and on motion of
Gray there was a unanimous request for
its withdrawal. Mr. Oehlrich seemod
fully determined to carry out his pur
pose, but it seems that the law requires
a vacancy to exist thirty days before -1
election in order to be filled at election,
and for fear that some important interest
of the city might be pnt in jeopardy, Mr.
Oehlrich consented to further serve.
The committee on police were empow
ered to arrange for suitable rooms in
which to hold sessions of registration
board and election for Third ward, and
afterwards determined upon Mardock's
room. The city hall was selected for
election day and the council chamber
for board of registration.
The committee on waterworks, to
whom had been referred the communica
tion of Engineer Burrell asking privilege
of placing a room for sleeping purposes
reported that as their time was about to
expire it would be best to leave this to
the action of the new committee. Report

deduction of balance due on occupation

February $116.65, was allowed with a
deduction of $8.15 for 163 honrs less

Wednesday evening last thero were
about 150 citizens gathered at Fitzpat
rick's hall for the purposoof nominating
a ticket to bo supported at the coming
election, by those who aro dissatisfied
wi.h the present administration of
C. A. Brindiey acted as chairman and
J. L. Paschal of the Argus as secretary.
The writer hereof was not present to
h6ar what J. N. Kilian had to say, but as
near as we can learn, he declared himself
in favor of tho movement among the
first who spoke, but suggested that it
might bo well to defer nominations
until after the republicans and demo
crats had put their tickets in the field.
This, however, did not suit tho major
ity preseflt, whose sentiments Avero ex
pressed by Rev. Bross, viz: that the
friends of good government had met for
the purpose of placing in nomination a
citizens', non-partisan ticket, men who
would enforce existing laws and ordi
nances of the city in tho interest of good
government and the welfare of the busi
ness interests of tho city. Ho thought
there was no more nocessity for thoso
hero to wait than for tho others to
endorse the nominations hero made.
Something was said also about who
was entitled to vote, but the opinion
seemed to prevail that those who should
vote there wonld not bo entitled to vote
at either of the other caucuses. This
seemed to dampen tho ardor of some of
those present, but there were some fifty
voted for the nominations that were
made. The ballot-box was placed in
front, and the names taken of thoso who
Nominations were declared in order,
and W. K. Lay placed before tho meet
ing tho name of Olof Johnson as a can
didate for mayor, supporting his candi
dacy in a lengthy speech, as in every
respect and in tho highest senso an
American citizen; a conservative man
who as mayor would conscientiously
enforce tho law. Ho said it was not
right to call a mayor conservative if he
permits tho violation of law to please the
lawless element. Such a mayor, like the
present, is venturesome rather than
J. S. Freeman nominated W. R. Notes-
teiu, and the balloting resulted in John
son 48; Notestein 14.
The ticket was completed with treas
urer, Daniel Schrara; clerk, C. E. Early;
members of school board, Henry Hock
enberger, R. H. Henry. J. C. Swartsley;
councilman, First ward, H. T. Spoerry;
Second, L. W. Weaver; Third, S. C.
We have not learned whether the men
mentioned intend to remain on the
ticket or not, but are assured that Mr.
Johnson fully considered tho matter and
will make tho race the best ho knows how.
The scarcity of corn in Nebraska
this winter, observes the Norfolk News,
has been tho means of introducing a
new kind of feed for stock. Several
weeks ago W. H. Butterfield shipped in
a quantity of cotton seed meal and com
menced feeding it to his stock. Then F.
J. Hale sent for a carload, and Owen
Bros, have secured two carloads. The
new feed costs $17 per ton laid down in
Norfolk, which makes it as cheap as corn
at 15 cents per bushel. Tho cattle eat
the meal with as much relish as they do
corn, and appear to fatten just as fast.

A contest over the will of the late
Fathor James M. Ryan is io p- -gross

Tho will contains a bequest of $8,000
to Mary Lamb, a si6ter of the deceased,
the balance of the estate to go to Bishop
On August 16, 1894, Judge Baxter ad
mitted the instrument to probate, but
Lizzie Lynch and Maggie Robrs, nieces
of tho late clergyman, allege that Father
Ryan whon he made this will was not of
sound mind and that nnduo influence
was brought to bear upon him. The
testimony yesterday went to show that
nt tho timo tho will was signed Father
Ryan was in feeble condition, aud that,
while ho was a highly educated man, he
merely put his mark to the instrument,
instead of writing his name.
World-Herald, March 18: The will of
Father James M. Ryan has been broken.
The jury empanelod beforo Judge Key
sor tojuecido whethor or not be made it
as his voluntary act and was in n fit con
dition to draw up tho instrument ex
ecuted December 25, 1891, brought in n
verdict answering both questions in the
negative, after listening for a week to
testimony and arguments. This verdict
was returned under seal yesterday after
noon at 3 o'clock.
Father Ryan was ono of tho beet
known clergymen of the Catholic church
in this section. He had charges at Co
lumbus and Omaha for years back.
When he was taken sick in 1891, at tho
house of his sister, Mrs. Mary Lamb, in
Omaha, he made the will in question,
leaving her $8,000. The residue of his
estate went to tho Omaha bishop "to bo
used as ho should deem of greatest ad
vantage to the Catholic church," in ac
cordance with a provision of the canon
law requiring a priest to romembor the
church in his bequests.
Relatives contested, alleging undue
iniiuonco and imbecility. The success
ful contestants are: P. J. Ryan, Agnes
Ryan, Florence Ryan, Arthur Thomas,
minors; Sarah Ryan, James Fallow,
Maggie Roberts, P. J. and M. B. Coffoy

A SET OF HARNESS FREE.
Call at L. W. Weaver's harness storo
and see tho set of harness he will giro
away May 1 to the lucky man. I will
give to every purchaser of a Bet of har
ness a ticket entitling him to a chance in
a drawing of ono of my very best hand
made harness worth S25. This gives
every man that buys a set of harness of
L. W. Weaver a chance to get two set for
tho price of one. I wish to say for my
harness that they are the very best; all
made in my shop by workmen of thirty
years' experience in the trade, and only
the very best oak leather is used. I ask
every one that contemplates buying to
call and examine them, and if they find
they are not as good or better than any
made in Columbus I don't ask ycu to
buy. Every sot is guaranteed and any
breakages in a reasonable length of time
are repaired free of charge. My prices
are cheaper than ever known before.
All hand made, nmge from $20 to $25
per set. The drawing will bo conducted
in any way the ticket holders may see
fit, and we shall see that it is done strict
ly fair in every way. Should I sell but
ten set of harness between now and May
1, tho drawing will take place just the
same. This offer surely ought to bo a
great inducement for you to buy your
harness of me, if the price and quality is
as good as elsewhere, and both of which
we guarantee. Buy your harness of
Weaver, for you may be the lucky man.
It costs you nothing extra, and may
make you a set of harness.
