rJ HE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND MONASTERY, of which we give the
mW picture, are two of 'the largest buildinga in the city. With the Catholic
TgU school to the west and hospital east of them, they have one of the strong-
t est organizations in the county.
The first church was organized in 1860 and was a little log cabin. Father
Fonrmont was the first priest and after six years, Father Ryan came, remaining
until 1892. The first members of the church, were: John Haney, James Haney,
John Browner, Pat Murray, Henry Carrig, David Carrig, James Carrig, John
Deneen, Michael Deneen, Ed. Hayes, Thos. Lynch, Mrs. Dunlap, James Conway
and Mrs. Brady.
In 1877, Father Ambrose came and organized the St Francis Catholic society.
The Monastery was built at an expense of $5,600. The church was originally a
frame building, part of which is now in the dwelling house of Mr. Sohroeber.
The first large church was built in 1881, at an expense of $8,000. In 1891 an ad
dition was made, extending the building to the west, making it as it stands now,
about 120 feet long by 40 feet wide, this improvement costing some $2,000.
Father Ambrose is now in Herman, Missouri. Father Ambrose was succeeded
by Father Wenddelinus in 1880, who remained until 1881, going to Germany,
where he died. Father Dominic remained here from 1861 to'1882 and is now in
Washington, Missouri. He was succeeded by Father Seraphin, who remained
until 1887, and is now located in California. Father Pacificus was here from 1887
to August, 1894, when he went to Chicago and ia now in Memphis, Tennessee.
From 1894 to 1895 Father Maurice who ia now in St Joseph church, Omaha, had
charge of the church here, since when Father Marcelinee has been the priest, and
is a great favorite with all his people.
In 1894, a basement was built to the north of the church, a long building to
hold weekday services in, at a cost of $2,000. At present there are three priests
and two attendants living in the Monastery. The congregation of the church
number over one thousand people, representing two hundred families.
Father Anastasius, who was for eome time priest at Duncan, making his
home here, died the 12th of March, 18K.

Frank Parker, a Nebraska pioneer,
died last Thursday evening at his home
in Merrick county. He located on a
ranch on the Platte river in 1861, where
he has since resided. A special to the
Omaha World-Herald says: "At the
time he located here there were less than
a dozen families in the county. Then
the trading was done at Omaha, the
milling at Fort Calhoun and the nearest
railroad station was Marengo, Iowa. To
the early emigrants Parker's ranch was
nearly as well known as the famous
"Lone Tree" stage station, whioh was
three miles west of Parker's. Several
times during the early '608 there were
numerous Indian scares, but through it
all Mr. Parker atuck to his ranch and
had witnessed many changes in Nebras

daughters. The funeral will be held

Concerning the Soldiers.
A rumor is current at army headquart

is said that the Third, Fourth, Fifth,
Seventh, Thirteenth and. Twentieth in

teers stationed there will be returned to
this country for mustering out.
The Twentieth United States infantry
at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, a regi

Santiago, received orders Monday to be
in readiness to more on short notice.
The officers had some days ago been
notified to make requisition for such
clothing and supplies as will be needed
in a tropical climate. It is- thought that
it is destined to send the regulars to
Manila to relieve one of the volunteer
regiments or to increase, the force already
in the island of Luzon. The regiment

Eleventh Street, -
you a day's trip up the Passig river. It
was but last Friday that Privates Hock
enbery, Connelly and I, undertook to
spend a day in the mountains that are so
clearly visible from the city. It is nee
less to state how the distance fooled us.
Our first step was to get natives to row
us up the stream. We got into a little
bark canoe and with these Philippines
at oars, we sped on. Our first hour was
spent in. the city limits. On both banks
of the river were beautiful structures
with fine yards. All these buildings are
inclosed, either by stone wall or high
fences cf wood or iron. The minute a
white man comes into the city of Manila
he knows that it is filled with robbers
and murderers. Every window is barred
and all doors too. We sailed beneath
the Manila suspension bridge and
numerous others, seemingly, everlasting
bridges. On arrival at our outpost, we
were stopped. Pass was called for and
we hung our heads low. Finally the
guard informed us of a route by land and
water where we could get through with
out being discovered by our men: We
sent our natives on up the stream and
took to foot. After crossing two branches
of the Passig and tramping three miles
through mud, grass and timber, we
arrived in the Philippino quarters. The
Philippino guide with us held a short
conversation with the sentinel and then
we marched on. They showed nothing
but friendship towards the Americans.
At one time one informed us of two TJ.
S. officers who were riding on Philippino
bronchoes and in our road. We knew it
was time to hide, and for the first time
for many months all three of us crawled
behind a stone wall. They rode past and
wo pon tided down sand once again. The
soil is not really sand, but a mixture.
On arriving at the river bank our two
Philippinoa were not to be found. We
stopped here and partook of the bread
and salmon that we bad brought from
quarters. This was a kind of a station
for row boats, and immediately after
dinner we hired another boat and went
sailing up the river at full speed. The
water is slack, which was our benefit in
facing it. Our men rowed some five
miles per hour. On leaving the last
named station the beautiful scenery
began. To our left were visible the green
covered mountains, no more than five
miles distant. They appeared large and
beautiful. On our right- was timber.
dense enough to be a jungle. The entire
bank is interspersed with native dwelling
places. The Philippinoa do not desire
an open space for a dwelling' place. It
seems as though the more timber they
can get around the house, the better
they like it. Further on. we passed by
stone quarries. The stone seems to be
nothing but lava from ancient volcanoes.
The quarries are some distance from the
bank. They transfer the rocks by means
of two-wheeled trucks, with the power of
a water-buffalo prefixed. The wheels of
the trucks are 12 feet in diameter. After
reachinar the Quarries the left bank, that
is our left bank in ascending the river, is
some 150 feet high. It is easy to climb.
as it is not vertical. Here we stopped
and ascended to the top of the foot hills.
We had gone some ten miles by this
time. The course of the river is so irreg
ular that we found ourselves entirely
surrounded by mountains, even toward
Manila, stall to the northeast, wnicn
was our main direction, we could see the
river wind, and some ten miles further
on we could- partially see the lake, from
where tae river takes its source, xne

dream to be once again aamoag the rocks
and the green vegetation of aa open
space. In the city wa ssa naught but
paved atreetawith stoaa walk on either
side. Our quarters are Bear, the month
of the river, where hardly any vegetation
is insight. It is too bad that oar oameers
do not realize the enormous good that a
trip like that does the tired, disgusted
soldier who has nothing to do bat the
monotonous guard daty. Should they
realise the benefit; they would make use
of1 the nanwroas launches that lie ia the
river and bay. As it is at present, one
cannot leave the city uulese he beats the
guards. And if one does beat the guard
and an officer discovers the breach of
orders and the carelessness of the guard
woe be with both of them. In our trip
I must not forget the one incident which
occurred on oar return. We put down
the side flaps on the right side so that
our guard should not see us. Little did
we think of Aquinaldo's guards, when we
were at one of his sentinel's posts. The
sentinel called for us to stop and give
"passe." We had not heard of native
guards and refused to acknowledge him.
He hastened the call to his guard hoase
but too late to stop the three Americanos,
who were then far down the stream.
Well, to end the tale, we arrived at
quarters in time for dress-parade (5 p. in.),
well satisfied with onr, just then, closiBg
Aguinaldo is not hostile to Americana.
He only keeps the army to fight Spain,
if needs be.
The Malocos, a northern tribe, has
given us until next Tuesday to vacate the
city. They are a rude, uncivilized race
and want to fight for spoil solely. Agui
naldo sent a message to Gen. Ottis,
stating that he dislikes the move of that
race; that they were none of his men;
and that if Gen. Ottis permits, be will
send a detachment of 2.000 Philippines
to intercept them on their march. The
reply is not known, but if it was my tarn
to make one I should willingly, say go
and give them' brim-stone. The various
Philippine tribes are in war all over the
island. They fight, who knows for what? '
It is the nature of these people to fight
until death. They think but little to aee
oae of their number fall. They are very
religions, aad while they were allowed to
carry anna in our presence, we could see
them in church with the full equipment.
Every oae carried a large dagger. They
surely do the same outside of Manila at
this time. When I passed their posts
lsst Friday I examined several guns and
their ammunition. They keep tbeir guns
clean and carry brass bullets ia their
