was nominated for assessor; H. J. Hudson,
justice; Ed. Rossiter and Andy Campbell,
constables. The city central committee:
First ward, John Graf; Second, O. L.

voters in Platte county who are not
taking kindly to the fact that the pop

organization. Seeing that the repub
lican ticket is unusually good throughout,
they will support it strongly.

Last Monday evening Miss Lillie
Laudeman had a close call for the other
country. While having some teeth ex
tracted, "without pain," she was over
come by the anesthetic used and for two
hours was unconscious. It was thought
at one time that all efforts to revive her
would fail, but after two hours of hard
work by the doctor she was finally
brought to consciousness. She was
taken home and has since been very ill,
but is now improving. St. Edward

A tramp came to one of the houses
of our city the other day, asked for

Journal is informed that after walking
a few feet away from the house, he threw
the bread away as unfit for bis royal

The owners of the Great Eastern
canal have decided to raise the price of
perpetual water rights to 87.50 per acre
on January 1. We have always thought
that the water was sold cheap and we
think now that those who are going to
buy water at all had better get a hustle
on themselves or prepare to pay extra
for waiting. Mrs. Fred Gottschalk
and sister Miss Annie Hoehen, of Co
lumbus were visitors here last week.
It isn't worth while to quarrel with
your neighbor over public matters, but
if you can quietly talk with them about

supreme court, down, yon and they may

perior merits of the entire republican
ticket. Republicans have a faculty for
government that amounts almost to
genius, and in this campaign they have
done just a little better than usual in
We hear of one Columbus man who
spent ten dollars on neckties the other
day. There were others, also, who didn't
invest so much, but enough, all told, to
make quite a snug sum for a few minutes
talk of the fakir. It is wonderful how
many men can be taken in on a deal of
that kind, biting at the bait, something
seemingly offered for nothing. The
fakir's method was to fold up a 810 bill
and tuck it into the tie, then sell the tie
for 82.50, and when the purchaser took
bill out it was found to be one dollar in
stead of ten.
The Franklin (Ind.), Star, speaking
of Supt. Williams' nomination for super
iutendency of our couuty schools, says
concerning him: "A more capable gen
tleman cannot be found for the office.
Mr. Williams has been a teacher and an
executive othcer of schools Tor many
years and he is specially equipped in all
that would tend to efficiency for such a
position. To this are his qualities as a
thoughtful, christian gentleman, and an
upright and honorable citizen. The
Star would be glad to hear of his eleva
tion to the position to which he aspires."
The Omaha Bee keeps at the front
in the newspaper field, having recently
enlarged its borders, now giving 12 pages
for each week day except Monday, in ad
dition to the usual twenty-page Sunday
issue. An editor is like an individual in
that he is entitled to his honest opinions
and the free expression of them: but we
know of men who hate Rosewater's poli
tics and scarcely ever read his editorials,
but take the Bee for its news. It is one
of the great papers of the world, and Ne
braska may well be proud of it. Next
year will doubtless be the greatest year
iu the Bee's history.
Judge Kilian and E. Pohl and Hen

why should it be? Most of us are either

grandfather, perhaps. The American
citizen does not have to be a native. He
may be a German, an Irishman, a Welsh
man, an Englishman or a Scandinavian.

F. Jaeggi, John Horst, I. Sibbern

with John Horst as president, Frank
Falbanm as secretary, and A, Jaeggi as
business manager, The name of the
corporation is to be "Elevator Roller
Mills Company.'' The nature of the
business to be transacted is the buying,
storing, grinding, manufacturing, ship
ping and selling all kinds of grain and
the manufactured products thereof, and
the authorized stock 8100,000. Tho
company are prepared to utilize their
plant to the full extent of its capacity.
In fact, they will make preparations for
much more storage room, expecting to
keep the mill going as it is now, night
and day. They now use about four
thousand bushels of wheat a week and
have a most excellent business.
The Knights and Ladies of Securi
ty, Columbus Council No. 549, met for
the first time in Odd Fellows' ball Sat-
urday evening last. There were fifty-
three charter members present, and all
enjoyed themselves with light refresh
ments, speeches and a good social time
generally. The following officers were
elected: President, A. E. Strauss; 1st
vice president, Jennie M. CcCann; 2d,
Mary A. Stevenson; prelate, Rev. C. A.
Weed; corresponding secretary, A. C.
Cunningham; financial secretary, G. W.
Duffy; treasurer, Mary F. Way; conduc
tor, Gertrude Alger; guard, Ida G.
Meagher; sentinel, A. J. Smith. The
trustees will be elected at tho meeting
next Saturday evening at the same
place, at which time the officers elect
will be installed. John A. Dempster,
deputy national president and state or
ganizer, will be the installing officer.

In a campaign of "principle" it seems
to us that the prime advocates and cen

We are thinking at present of the
Columbus Argus, which says in speaking
of our fellow-citizen, Mr. Robison, that
"Judge Robison is a good lawyer and
exceptionally well qualified for the posi
tion of connty judge. Xow the truth
hurts no one. Judge Robison is a good
citizen and we believe an honest man.
That is as far as his qualifications for
the office of county judge go. He is
not a good lawyer and we do not believe
he ever pretended to be. In fact he is
no lawyer at all, and what little knowl
edge he has of the law, and the basis of
the appelation "judge," which the Argus
bestows upon him, was acquired by
serving a term as justice of the peace
here in the early days. His knowledge
of law attained there may possibly have
been added to somewhat during his ex
perience of about a year aa collection

In each of the six years from '90 to 5
inclusive, Mr. Phillips received 8200
(81200 in nil) for preparing assessors'
booKs, and these amounts are not. on the
fee book, but are extra allowances to
him. In '9G and 97 Mr. Pohl received
8100 each year, and placed the 6ame on
the fee book.
Iu 92 to '95 inclusive, Phillips receiv
ed 8102.50, an average of 840.02 each
year, for correcting assessors' books,
and did not place the same on tho foe
hook; also in 'M and 95 for settlement
with township collectors 8100 not put

For like service in 'WJ and 17 Mr.
Pohl received 880 and placed the same

For correcting assessors' bookB Mr.
Pohl received but 8100 for two years,
and placed the same on tho fee book.
Taxpayers who have been in tho
clerk's office may have noticed the road
map on tho north wall Mr. Phillips
got 8150 of the county for that.
Mr. Phillips received from tho county
each year 84 for acting as county clerk
for commissioner on election returns,
while Mr. Pohl did that work and con
sidered it a part of his duty as county
clerk, without extra pay.
Pohl's administration has been far
more economical than that of Phillips.
The wedding of Charles L. Stillman
and Miss Maud Naylor last Wednesday
at high noon at the Presbyterian church
was one of the most fashionable the
Columbus people have witnessed in a
long time. The church was crowded
with guests before the noon hour, many
standing to witness the ceremony.
Young lady friends of the bride had
decorated the church with festoons of
evergreen, and the pulpit was a perfect
bank of plants, among which were
seated tho young lady friends of tho
bride. The room was darkened until
the bridal party arrived, when tho elec
tric lights were turned on, making a
beautiful effect. Junior Post, as page,
carrying the wedding ring on a golden
tray, led the procession, tho three little
tlower girls, Clara Covert, Celeste Weed
and Media Searles, following. Miss
Mayme Mallalieu of Kearney and Carl
Hoehen and Miss Lucy Taylor and Al
bert Stillman camo next followed by the
bride and groom, who woro met at the
altar by tho pastor, Rev. Hayes, who
performed tho wedding ceremony, after
which the bride and groom led the pro
cession from the church to tho home of
tho bride's parents, where a large crowd
of friends were received. Mi6s Lora
Becher played Mendelssohn's wedding
march before and after the ceremony.
The happy conple took the afternoon
train for Chicago, where they will pass
several days. Mr. Stillman is one among
many young men who make a success in
business. Left suddenly when young
with all the cares of an established busi
ness entirely with him, he has met every
responsibility and has shown an enter
prise equal to the occasion. Miss Nay
lor is a Platte connty girl and is of a
cheerful, kindly disposition, who makes
friends and a pleasant home wherever
she may be. Friends all wish them a
happy and prosperous journey through
The Osceola Record of Thursday
has this to say of a gentleman well known
to many of our Columbus readers: G.
Stull, of Marengo, HI, arrived at Osceola
last week to look after the crop on his
farm in Clear Creek precinct. He was a
resident of the county for many years,
moving to Marengo about nine years ago.
He reports it very dry in his part of Illi

One of the
largest and best
in Platte county
to select from.
The Telegram, the chief democratic
paper in the county, continues to sup
port a number of republican candidates,
because it believes they are the best.
We give some sample paragraphs.
Editor Gruenther, of Platte Center,
was in the city Saturday, and was quite
an object of interest to the "tricksters
and ringsters," who used heroic meas
ures to force the gentleman back into
line for the "gang" who have done their
level best the past several months to
break up and disrupt the democratic
party in the interest of the pops. But
the gang didn't get much comfort from
Fred Jewell was in Columbus on
Sunday after taking a jaunt through
other portions of tho county for tho
purpose ot observation, m conversa
tion with somo gentlemen hero, Mr.
Jewell expressed himself as of the opin
ion that the Saunders-Phillips combine
was already beaten in the county and
nothing could save 'em. And what is
more, Mr. Jewell didn't seem to mourn
over it a bit. He evidently has a mem
ory. When the smoke of battle clears
away in November and the Saunders
Phillips combine is found defeated, the
political atmosphere of Platte county
will bo once more pure and healthy, and
democrats will have reason to rejoice at
the merited rebuke administered to tho
unscrupulous schemers led by that wor
P. H. Bender, our candidate for sher
iff, was in the city on Sunday. The
popularity of Mr. Bender's candidacy is
growing every day, as he becomes bettor
known to the voters. No bankers or
collection agents are out working for
him which is certainly something in his
favor. We regard Mr. Bender's elec
tion as already assured.
DEMOCHA TIC ENDORSEMENT.
Tho following extracts are from the
Grand Island Anzeiger, a German nows
paper, with democratic proclivities, and
speak for themselves:
Our candidate for supreme judge, who
is to be elected this fall, as Judge Post's
term expires, was W. H. Thompson of
Grand Island, who also was tho choice
of all democrats and pops. What means
and machinations wero used to defeat
him and nominate Sullivan every one
knows. What object the machine bad
in view in nominating him is hardly
known. In former times the mnchino
came out openly and did not fear day
light. Since the convention we have
come to the conclusion to support Judge
Post, even if our party Unds fault with
Tho present judge is competent, as
he has proven in his last term. We wish
to repeat that ours was never a strict
party paper, always supporting the best
man. The nomination of Snllivau is not
after our choice, and we declare our
selves in favor of Judge Post, as we did
at his former election, knowing him to
be competent and able.
In judging public persons we ought
to be fair enough to give a good officer
credit for services rendered, without re
gard to his party. Those who know
Judge Post and his record on the bench
must admit that he was a good judge.
He is thoroughly versed in law and a
hard worker. Judge Post is a friend of
the Germans, and our peoplo of Nebras
ka, regardless of politics, owo him a
good word in this campaign. It is not
our business to dictate to our readers
whom they should vote for, but part of
our business is to recommend those who
have served faithfully, and such a faith
ful servant is Judge Post, and we cannot
speak too highly of him. He has never
shown himself as a much employed pol
itician who travels over the state to
make himself popular, but remains at
his work year after year, trusting that
his record will speak for him. Judge
Post is a good worker, whom we can
rely on, one who is never led by his
temper or prejudice. We predict a
liberal support from the Germans of the
