It is said that the Exposition au

as long a time as the public demands.
We suppose the amount of patronage
will decide the length of time. Later
information does not tally with this.

One who has lately been out through
the country says that between Colum
bus and Creston is one of the very best
sections in Nebraska or in the west any
where, for that matter. Good farm,
dwelling houses, good barns, good
shelters for stock, orchards fenced, pas
tures, land under cultivation, forest and
shade trees, and every evidence of in
dustry thrift and prosperity.
A surplus in the pockets of the peo
ple is just the- same kind of "goodness"
for those people individually, as a sur
plus in the national treasury is for the
nation. In either case, the surplus is
muoh more convenient, agreeable, satis
factory and useful than a deficit. Vote
for the republican ticket. Send Norris
to congress, who will help see that the
surplus situation is continued.
B. S. Wyatt has been promoted by
the Singer Sewing Machine company and'
will remove to Grand Island, which will

north of the Platte river except Douglas
and Sarpy county. Mr. Wyatt is to be
congratulated, as the promotion means
a nice increase in salary. Mr. and Mrs.
Wyatt have made many friends during
their stay here, who will regret their
departure. Norfolk Journal.

Arrangements will be made at once to

A. M. Jennings received a letter
Monday from Wm. J. Thurston of Fitz
gerald, Georgia, under date of Oct. 27,
in which he tells of setting out straw
berry plants that day. That morning
they had the first frost of the season,
blackening tender tomato vines and the
like. The city is to get
artesian water for their water works, or
the contractor is not to have anything
for the wells. The electric light and
waterworks plant belongs to the city.

talk. Do your own thinking, and vote

Quite a number of pranks were
played Monday night by the Hallowe'en
raiders. It would, of course, take a
small army of police to keep down the
greater army of mischief-makers, but the
city, all the same, will have to pay some
body to replace the street and alley cross
ings disturbed. As usual, we suppose
the property of citizens that has been
disturbed will be cared for by the dis
turbed citizens at their own expense.
The three Guilds of the Grace Epis
copal church, will give a supper and

things for the inner man. Many fancy
articles will be displayed. One entire
table containing the children's work.
Especial attention has been given to

Charley Riley is home on a thirty
days furlough. Charley is one of the
regulars and says he is not sorry he en
listed. He sees visions of visiting Ma
nila and thinks before' he is done with
it he will be pretty far traveled. When
you see him on the street in his uniform
you mustn't take him for a street car
conductor because he don't like it, and
then besides you will show how green
you are. Charley isn't very fat either
but then he says he is fatter than he
was. Anyhow the boys all congratulate
him on getting home alive after his se
vere sickness. Albion Argus.
Mr. Smythe must have struck pretty

The Schuyler Sun editor makes this
brief comparison between the two candi
dates for congress. Of Robison he says:
"He sat down with the look of a man
who had been trying hard to create
something out of nothing, and didnt
know whether be had been successful or
not. He is no such a speaker aa Judge
Norris, and he has not the breadth of
thought nor the knowledge of public
The assessor for Columbus is about
as important a local officer as we are
called upon to elect this fall. He should
be a man of good judgment, well
acquainted with the value of your prop
erty, which forms the basis cf the tax
levy; he should be at all times qualified
for business; he should be level-headed,
and capable of working on lines radiating
from good general principles. Vote for
Shannon, and be sure that you do, so
that there will be no possibility or prob
ability of electing Foster.
The east-bound train wrecked on
the U. P. west of Fremont Sunday night
was in three sections. The special had
orders to meet the first section at Valley
and the second at Fremont. The west
bound' train met the second section of
No. 20 at Fremont, but evidently didn't
notice that it carried signals for another
section, and the engineer on the second
section of No. 20, it is stated, did not
give the whistle signal calling attention
of the west-bound train that another sec
tion was following.
We are told that Supervisor Lisco is
especially anxious for the defeat of
Supervisor Wiggins. If so there must
be some especial reason, personal to Mr.
Lisco. The public are not especially
concerned in falling in with the schemes
of officials who are especially at work for
their own individual personal ends.
What Columbus and Platte county need
always on the county board is men that
you cannot "pass the hand through";
men who will do what they think is
right, and who will do their best to
ascertain what is the right; men who
have no special deals on hand; men who
neither domineer over others, nor are
domineered by others, and such is John
The leading features of the Ameri
can Monthly Review of reviews for No
vember are: The editorial comment on
the State and Congressional campaigns
(illustrated); an illustrated account of
the work of the "Y. M. C. A." in connec
tion with the army and navy during the
war with Spain, by Albert Shaw, an art
icle on "The Newspaper Correspondents
in the War," with numerous portraits;
Mr. Creelman's own story of his Santi
ago adventures; "Onida's" "Impeach

Vecchia's reply; "The Nicaragua Canal
in the Light of Present Politics," by
Prof. L. M. Keasbey; and the Nicaragua
Canal and Our Commercial Interests,"

The democrats and populists are
distributing a campaign dodger headed
"To the Nebraska Voter," purporting to
come from "Committee," and to be "a
statement of importance from the repub
lican association," whatever that may be.
But there is about the whole two-page
circular an air of scandal and slander,
without the name of the author any
where, or even a hint of where or by
whom it is printed. Whether or not
there is the least foundation in truth of
the charges made (which, by the way,
are all against George A. Murphy, re
publican candidate for lieutenant gover
nor), the manner of the thing is that of
the stiletto, a stab by a fiend, in the
dark. Look out for frauds and cheap de
vices of all kinds. A copy of. this cam
paign dodger can be seen at this office.
Qua. G. Becher, as guardian of Willie
Saner, has sent him to Chicago, where
he can live with his brothers Gus. and
Max, and attend school. He had been
attending commercial school at Omaha,
and has shown considerable aptitude for
telegraphy, to which he will devote him
self. Mr. Becher accompanied him to
Omaha Saturday. Willie will be remem
bered by Journal readers as the boy
who lost the four fingers of his left hand
about ten years ago at a railroad cross
ing in this city. He is now sixteen years
of age, and will doubtless be able to
make good use of his $2,000 obtained
from the railroad company, when he
becomes of age. His brothers are in
good positions at Chicago, and Willie
will have a better opportunity for
progress than the great multitude of
Journal readers who are Platte
county voters are mostly acquainted
with John Tannahill, either personally
or by. general repute. In his quiet, un
oetentious way he has done more in the
way of developing this section of Ne
braska to .what it now is, than many
men of- great pretentions to public
gratitude. When the government need
ed men in the War of the Rebellion, and
also in the Spanish-American contest,
Mr. Tannahill's services were proffered.
Whenever his services were accepted he
was found true to his trust, and a good,
loyal soldier of bis state and nation.
He is a long-time resident of the state,
and knows thoroughly the interests of
his constituency. He will support the
administration of President McKinley
by voting for a man for U. S. senator,
who will justly represent the people of
this state at the national capital.

Far the Soldier.
James D. Gage, assistant adjutant
general, Lincoln, Neb., has been ap
pointed forwarding agent by friends of
the soldier boys, to ship donations.
Those for the 1st regiment must be
prepared at once so as to reach Manila
by Christmas, and must be shipped by
Nov. 15. That for the 3d by Dec. 1.
Friends of the boys at each home
station are to organize and communi
cate. Each soldier is to be sent a box not
larger than 18x8x8 inches, made of pine.
These to be put in a strong shipping
case large enough to hold 50 individual
Clothing or trinkets of any kind may
be sent in safety. Of edibles, fruit cake,
preserves, jellies or any canned goods
may be sent, but no fruit or cooked food
of any kind other than that named
above should be included.
Mr. Gage suggests that each box
might contain 2 undershirts, all wool; 2
pairs of draws, all wool; 6 cotton stock
ings, 6 colored handkerchiefs, 6 medium
sized Turkish towels, hair brush, comb,
tooth brush, one dozen needles, ono
spool of black linen thread, one dozen
Eants buttons, one dozen pearl shirt
uttons, one small pin cushion and pins,
one dozen stamped envelopes, six of
them directed to the mother or dear
friend of the soldier, one quart of home
made pickles, one quart of cherries, one
pound of fruit cake, one pint of grated
horseradish. The committee at each
company station is asked to see that
each soldier in the company receives a
box, whether he has friends in the com
munity or not. If this is done no sol
dier will be slighted.
This work must be done by the com
mittee at the home station, and attend
to it at once. If not, then the boys from
that station will be left out in the cold.
The members of the G. A. R. are ex
pected to lend a helping band. Who
knows better than they the benefit de
rived from such work?
We give, below, a letter bearing upon
this subject, directed to Comrade Brock
of this city, all of which, in summary at
least, it would be well for local papers to
make mention of. Everything that
beare upon the welfare of the boys
away from home, in their country's ser
vice is especially worthy of close and
prompt attention, so as to reach them:

our party to give him all tho support we
possibly can, not so much because he is
a republican but because we know him
to be capable and worthy of the place.
No one will ever regret supporting Mr.

earnestly desired as any man on the

Senator Thurston was greeted Thurs
day evening st the opera house by a
splendid audience, whom he entertained
with one of his characteristic speeches,
to which no report can do justice. He
completely vindicated the course of the
republican party in the conduct of the
war against Spain, and denounced those
who have been finding fault simply and
only for the sake of finding fault.
He gave a few of the undoubted and
unchallenged evidences of the better
times that had been promised by the
republicans in the event of McKinley's
He denounced Senator Allen for his
general course in the senate on war
measures, after the first providing of
money to begin war operations.
He severely denounced the opposition
for defeating a measure introduced by
the republicans, providing a method for
allowing the soldiers away from home to
Also for defeating another measure
authorizing the enlistment of negro
soldiers to send into the regions of the
enemy which, by reason of the hot and
wet climate were well known to be ex
ceedingly dangerous to men of the north,
not enured to the climate, but compara
tively safe to the negro, whose delight
is the warmth of the tropic sun.
He said that he hadn't heard the sil
ver issues discussed this year, except in
a graveyard, which he thought was a
very appropriate place for such discus
sion. It is really a dead issue. He re
garded the dollar much as he did the
flag. He wanted it at least as good as
the best anywhere, and to be honored
and respected at its full value anywhere
on earth, just as it is today.
The only thing that may properly be
called a political issue now is the dispo
sition of the fruits of the war, and they
were being garnered all right, if the
administration shall be sustained by the
people at the coming election in the
choice of congressmen who will not
throw obstructions in the way, and sen
ators who will do duty as patriots in
furthering the good work done by our
army and navy until peace shall be
assured beyond a doubt.

The collision was" between regular
westbound freight train No. 27, and an
extra westbound stock train, the former
running into the rear of the latter, those
killed riding on the engine of the second
train when it plunged into the extra.
The two trains were running about
five minutes apart and were going at a
rate of about forty miles an hour, before
the station was reached. At Silver
Creek, says the Bee, the extra stopped
and the rear brakeman was sent back to
signal the second train.
The caboose and four freight cars
were crumbled into small pieces.
Engineer Hindman was thrown back
into the tender, crushed by falling coal,
and badly scalded.

Hon. T. L. Matthews of Fremont,
republican candidate for state-auditor,
will address his fellow-citizens tomorrow,
Thursday evening, at Maennerchor hall.
Everybody is invited. Mr. Matthews is
regarded as one of the brightest and best
political speakers in Nebraska, and,
according to all reports of his ability,
those who hear him tomorrow evening
will have a rare intellectual treat. Turn
out, everybody, and crowd the house to
its utmost capacity. A good, large audi

good speech, you get it, if the man is at
all capable of giving it, and in this case,
you are sure to get an excellent speech.
