DEATH OF JOHN ELLIOTT.
Departed this life, at his residence in this city, Monday morning, January 15.
1900, after a protracted illness. John Elliott, in the seventy-seventh year of his age.
John Elliott was born October 14. 1823, in Cumberland county, Pennsylvania,
and during his childhood and younger manhood lived with his parents on a farm.
He enlisted in the Mounted Rifle regiment, when yet young, going from Carlisle,
Pennsylvania, into active service July 10, 1846. He had many interesting expe
riences in the three years of service, and was promoted to be second sergeant of
his company. A parchment certificate of honorable mention signed by James K.
Polk, president, and Wm. L. Marcy, secretary of war, August, lSi7, was one of the
souvenirs greatly prized by him.
He served under General Taylor at Monterey, and under General Scott on the
Vera Cruz line and in the taking of the City of Mexico, fighting in the battles of
Contrares, Cherubusco, Molena del Rey and Chapultepec, receiving honors for
distinguished services in the first-named engagement.
After returning from the war Mr. Elliott was a merchant at Carlisle, Penn
sylvania, until in 1376, when he came to Platte county, settling on his farm on
Shell creek. In about 1S83, he came to Columbus, where he has ever since resi
ded. For seven years he was street commissioner, and was bailiff of the District
court many years, serving in that capacity at the term before his last sickness,
which began December 27, with a stroke of paralysis, since which he had been con
fined to his bed, suffering other strokes, and finally departed this life Monday
morning at 2:40.
He was one of the very first members of the order of Knights of Pythias in
the United States, and was an ardent knight at all times.
Mr. Elliott was married November 1, 1849, to Mary Jane Smiley, who survives
him, with their five children: Joseph of Salt Lake City, Utah; Mrs. Charles Gil
Ion, Neosho, Missouri; Hanson S., of Columbus and Mrs. E. H. Andrews of Lead
The grandchildren are all now here except Miss Florence Elliott and James

family dropped in on us for a few min
utes the other day, and during that
brief time recalled many incidents of
the 1850 and 1860 decades at Cadiz,
Ohio. As a boy of ten years, he was
both a poet and an artist, of great re
nown among his fellows, added to which,
he was bidextrous. with his hands in any
shape, whether in play, work or battle,
and on sudden emergencies could do
double duty, and double-discount oppo
nents. The reception given by the Woman's
club Thursday afternoon at the resi
dence of L. Gerrard was attended by
over one hundred people, members and
friends of the club. The Mandolin club
furnished music during the evening, and
Mrs. Warren and Miss Ethel Galley each
sang solos. Miss Florence Kramer gave
a recitation that was well appreciated.
The dining room was decorated with
the club colors, green and pink. Large
rose bowls of pink carnations were on
the tables and mantles. The refresh
ments were served in the dining room
by several young ladies. The ladies are
very proud of the work their different
departments are accomphehing, aad are
anxious to strengthea the club by more
interest from outsiders, which these
annual reeeptaoaa aadoabtedly will do.

There is talk, as spring approaches, '
of the improvement of the park in the
part of that city. It ia a good
location, the trmaa in mipm mm mm th
sod mast be good. It isnt far from a i
water-main, aad if we remember rightly,
one of the big arguments for extending
the mains ia that direction was the fact
that the park should be improved, and
why not aow? The extension one block
and the beautifying that park (do you
know the name of it), should be a labor
of love for the opening of spring.
J. M. Hili of Virginia, Gage county,
was in the rity Saturday on his way
home from attending the funeral of his
mother, Mary A. Hill, who died Wednes
day last at St. Edward, Boone county,
aged 79 years. She suffered a stroke of
paralysis the previous Sunday, from
which she never recovered. Mrs. Hill
was a resident of this city some years
ago, and made a number of warm friends
during her stay. Her husband died in
the army in 1864. Mrs. Hill was grand
mother of Lieutenant Lester Sisson, who
was killed in the Philippines. She leaves
four children, fourteen grand-children
and seven great-grandchildren.
Johnny Baker, the celebrated crack
trap shot, who has been with Buffalo
Bill's Wild West show since its organiza
tion in this city in 1963, passed through
the city Monday on his way from North
Platte to New York city. He had been
called home by the death of his father,
who was a pioneer in this country, and
a man much respected in the community
where he lived. Besides being a crack
shot, Johnny is CoL Cody's first lieuten
ant, and in giving orders to the army of
employes connected with the show, he
does it in such a manner that everything
moves like clock-work, and at the same
time he is very popular with all hands.
He was accompanied by his two bright,
R. B. Thompson, a character pretty
well known in this county, recently a
resident of Creston, it seems has gotten
himself into trouble at Emerson, where
he located to practice law, and is now in
the county jail at Ponea, awaiting the
continuance of bis preliminary hearing
on the charge of obtaining money under
false pretenses. The trial is set for Feb
ruary 5. A special to the Omaha World
Herald gives the following in regard to
his doings: "Smiley, an Emerson mer
chant, having some financial entangle
ment, sought Thompson's advice. The
charge is that Thompson represented
that he had bills for collection which he
was compelled to push as Smiley s cred
itors were getting alarmed. Shortly
afterward he called on Smiley and in
formed him that warrants were out for
his arrest and that the sheriff was in
town to serve them, and the best thing
he could do would be to gire him
(Thompson) power of attorney, and turn
over his property. Meanwhile an ac
complice called, saying he was the sheriff
of Dakota county, and was after Smiley.
Thompson conferred with him and put
him off while Smiley turned his prop
erty over to Thompson and with Thomp
son's assistance left the state. In a
short time Smiley found a trick had
been played on him, and returned and
caused Thompson's arrest."
Wm. T. Allen, who has for some
months been in the employ of the Mexi
can Central Railway company at Tam
pico, Mexico, has returned home to stay,
not liking that country as a home. He
says he did honest work for his dollar,
but when he received his 31.000 in Mex
ican money he was compelled to ex
change it for $47250 of United States
money. He would like to have every
free silver advocate of Nebraska live
awhile in Mexico to fully appreciate the
value of the situation. United States
money, whether metal or paper, is eagerly
grabbed up. Much trading is done with
pennies, and they illustrate the relative
merits of the currency; it takes three of
ours to weigh as much as one of theirs,
while one of ours is worth two of theirs.
He says that a suit of man's clothing
costing 313 here would be 355 there;
shoes 32 here, 36 there; a hat 31.50 here,
same kind there $6; everything in mer
chandise is bought and sold on a gold
basis except tobacco and cigars. Mr.
Allen speaks very highly of President
Diaz, as a patriot, an official who enfor
ces the law, and as an intelligent man
comprehending the needs of the people,
and exerting his energies to accomplish
good for the nation. He says that the
railroads are doing very much in the
development of the natural resources of
the country and the civilization of the
people, but the natives are fitly named
"greasers," being slippery, treacherous,
shiftless, lazy; many of them have no
house to shelter them at night, but
wherever they find themselves when
night overtakes them, they wrap their
blanket around them and he down on
the bare ground to sleep. Near the coast
fhe climate is warm. Until the winter of
'96, which was cold enough to cut down
the coffee farms, the oldest settlers had
not seen frost there, but back in the
mountains, it is colder. Three clerks in
the railroad office, all former residents of
Missouri and also advocates of the free
and unlimited coinage of silver, wrote
their old friends, detailing their experi
ence with the coin and advising them
not to give countenance to say political
party who gave encouragement to such
doctrine. Mr. Allen leaves with us two
samples of lignum-vita, a solid wood
very much in use there. He says that
ebony, which is so costly elsewhere, is
used there for railroad ties, and is so
dense that holes are bored into it in order
to receive the spikes. A singular custom
of theirs is to allow no corpse to be
brought out of the country. Poor people
are wrapped in a blanket, and put under
seal barely sufficient to hide them from
daylight. The rich rent a burial place,
but if the pay ceases, after a year the
dead bodies are cast out. Mr. Allen's
grandson, Georgie, accompanied him,
and awing the first big flag of the Union,
he was very much delighted, and sang
