before her death she was stricken with
paralysis. Mrs. Gentleman came to this

just two years ago. Mrs. Gentleman had
four children, all of whom are now living,

This week, says the Monroe Look

were in a very hard slate that readily

dissolved in water. On Tuesday they
only made a few feet. Eugene Bacon,

will be thick enough. The prospect

surrounding region as well as at home;
we are all in hopes to strike water soon.
The well is 480 feet deep. L. Gerrard

Friday evening, all members present,
.Mayor Speice presiding, asd the eotxneQ
chamber with a full JepcMeotatkxi of
citizens, some of whom "had' to choose
between standing or leatviHg.
The appointment of Leopold Plath as
aaniffapT chief by the fire department to
succeed F. Hagel, who resigned, was
confirmed by the council.
Resolutions of the fire department
were read calling the attention of the
city council to sections 3293-6, providing
for suitable fire escapes from high build
ings, and as there are several hotels in
the city coming under the meaning of
the statute, some action by the council
is desirable for the protection of the
public, the safety of the firemen in case'
of fire. The committee from the de
partment consisted of Messrs. Kflian,
Hagel and Miller, the chairman, Judge
Kilian, afterward appearing and urging
action by the council. The resolutions
were referred to the committee on fire.
A petition was read, signed by a large
number of citizens asking for the open
ing of Platte street, the removal of ob
structions as .they are a damage to
property interests' and contrary to for
mer agreement. The petition was re
ferred to the committee on streets and
2. Fuller, police judge elect, made
application for desk room as police judge
in the council chamber for the ensuing
term. Request granted.
The certificate of election of R. X.
Bossiter as city engineer was placed on
The applications of Thos. McTeggart
and also of C. B. Speice for the position
of engineer at the waterworks were read
and ordered placed on file.
The bond of W. S. Gardner aa dray
may, accompanied by the treasurer's re
ceipt for $5, was accepted and license
. The $2,000 bond of A Dussell Son
as plumbers, with Henry Ragatz and
Hugh Hughes as sureties, was approved
and license granted.
The $250 bond of Harry B. Reed as
herder, with W. R. Notestein and E. H.
Jenkins as sureties, was approved and
Same of Burt Moore and George
Brodfuehrer as herders, and J. L. Stur
geon, F. Brodfuehrer and John E. Moore
License was granted to Robert Hersch
bruner as plumber, with J. E. Ernst and
Louis Schwarz as sureties.
The $500 bond of B. Fuller as police
judge with J. G. Reeder, S. J. Ryan and
Ed. Early as sureties, was approved.
The $500 bond of Wm. Becker as city
clerk was approved, with F. W. Riemer
and C. H. Davis as sureties.
The $10,000 bond of Frank Wurde
man, as city treasurer,.with J. H.Wur
demas, C. H. Sheldon. Jonas Welch and
W. A McAllister as sureties was ap
proved. Judge Kilian as chief of the fire de
partment, and as a committeeman ap
pointed by them, appeared before the
council in regard to fire escapes, as
elsewhere referred to, and also urged
that it is absolutely necessary to have a
fire alarm at the court house, as for the
Abts fire there were many who did not
he3r the alarm at all. and the bell at
Hughes' lumber yard is too far away for
the First ward.
Also that the chief should have power
to.appoint a special pqliceduringthe.
continuance of a fire, and stationed near
by to protect property, and to prevent
interference with the duties of firemen.
He referred to the fact that during
January next a convention of the fire
men of the state is to be held in this
city and it is desirable that something
be done, not only for the welfare of the
firemen right along, but for the visitors,
when they come. He said they had no
suitable room in which to meet, the
council chamber is too small for even an
ordinary meeting of the department, and
the room at the engine house is too dan
gerous they didn't want to be killed
before their time came. He had under
stood that Charles Reinke's rooms re
cently occupied by the Y. M. C. A. could
be had for $12 a month. All the com
panies have money ahead, enough to do
a little with, but they thought they
would ask the council to pay the rent of
a suitable room and the department
would endeavor to fit it with reading
matter, etc.. at their own expense.
These gatherings are of representatives
from many towns and villages of the
state: they come together for mutual
improvement and for the benefit of the
public, and certainly it becomes the city
of Columbus and its fire department to
provide for their entertainment.
All the matters spoken of, together
with the resolutions were referred to the
committee on fire.
The chief of police made no arrests
during April, and the police judge said
he had transacted no business.
The street commissioner reported
work done on Thirteenth, Washington
avenue. Eleventh, North, Sixteenth, etc.,

Arnold, physician; Charles Schubert,

seer of streets: August Schock, chief of
police; Ed. Rcssiter and Con. Hewitt,
At the meeting Monday evening, the
bond of Carl Schubert was referred to
the committee on waterworks for inves
tigation and report as to sufficiency.
Mayor Speice thought the matter ought
to be passed upon during the evening,
The bond of Chris. From as street
commissioner was approved, with G. A.
Scott and S. J. Ryan as sureties.
The report ot the committee on streets
and grades recommending the accept

coming year, for $775, was adopted.

Same for S. A. McCone'a bili of S1L25

ted that they had given the same due
consideration and thought it for the
beat interests of the city that John Bur-

Mayor Speice remarked that he didn't

dtiaeas there was a cloud over this

Bonds ot Con. Hewitt as policeman
and A. Shock as chief were approved.

a free-holder, and hence his appoint
measas water commissioner is not in
cossrmit to law.

of Ae city, which had been placed with
the Argus for printing by Treasurer
Beraey, was presented, read and ordered
filed, and then turned over to the Argus

At the celebration of the 77th anni
versary of Oddfellowship, at Leigh
Monday of last week, the World has this
to say: -The speaker, Judge Hudson, of
Columbus, was then introduced. He
said an apology was due for what he
had to say because as he became ad
vanced in years it was necessary for him
to resort to manuscript. He then
launched forth upon a fitting eulogy of
the Odd Fellows order, touching slight
ly upon its growth and development in
America, distinguishing American from
English Odd Fellowship, and said that
he had been connected with the lodge
for fifty-five years and was acquainted
with both English and American socie
ties. He had joined the order in the
city of London when but eighteen years
of age. The speaker talked a little over
an hour, giving in clear and definite
terms the primary objects of Odd Fel
lowship, and was of the opinion that
the order was doing what the church
neglects to do in looking after the tem
poral welfare of humanity. The dis
course was enlivened with occasional

The TranmiLippi ExptHitioa.
fever has there been anything sug
gested that will bring as many people
into Nebraska as the proposed Trans
mississippi exposition to be held at
Omaha in 1S3S. Since the government
has recognized the undertaking and has.
voted $200,000 for its building and ex
hibit it has become an assured fact.
In order to make the exposition a suc
cess in every particular it will be neces
sary to keep the people all over the
country thoroughly posted on its possi
bilities, its development and progress.
Every citizen of Nebraska should make
it his business to let his friends in all
parts of the country understand that
this enterprise is to be second only to.
the great Chicago Columbian exposi
tion of 1S93.
The Omaha Bee proposes to devoteJ
considerable space from now on to this
great enterprise, knowing that a great
deal of publicity will be necessary to
bring the people here at the right time.
It has been suggested that a rate be
made for subscriptions to The Bee that
will give everybody an opportunity to
send one or more papers to friends in lr.
other states. Acting on this suggestion
the publishers of The Weekly Bee have
decided to make a price of 25 cents for
that paper, mailed to any address in
the country from the present time up
to January 1, 1597. This price hardly
covers the cost of the white paper used
in printing a twelve-page paper for this
length of time, but the publishers feel
that the great exposition must be prop
erly advertised and are willing to do
their share toward helping along an
enterprise that is bound to be a great
benefit to this state, as well as to the
entire western country. Orders should
be addressed to The Weekly Bee,
Omaha, Neb. 2
Tto To Chicago and the Eat.
Passengers going east for business, will
naturally gravitate to unicago as tne
great commercial center. Passengers
re-visiting friends or relatives in the
eastern states always desire to "take in"
Chicago en route. All classes of passen
gers will find that the -Short Line" of
the Chicago, Milwaukee i: St. Paul Bail
way, via Omaha and Council Bluffs,
affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations in a manner that will be
sure to give the utmost satisfaction.
A reference to the time tables will in
dicate the route to be chosen, and, by
asking any principal agent west of the
Missouri river for a ticket over the
Chicago. Council Bluffs i: Omaha Short
Line of the Chicago, Milwaukee fc St.
Paul Eailway. you will be cheerfully
furnished with the proper passport via
Omaha and Chicago. Please note that
all of the "Short Line" trains -arrive in
Chicago in ample time to connect with
the express trains of all the great through
car lines to the principal eastern cities.
