THE SOLDIERS' MONUMENT.
IN THE SUMMER OF 1898, J. R Meagher wrote to the ordnance department
of the government for a cannon to be used here on public occasions, a little
while afterwards getting answer that the government were not giving away cannon
that were fit for use, but that they would donate condemned cannon to corpora
tions or societies for monumental purposes, bat not more than two pieces to any
one corporation or society; at the same time saying that there were a number
such at Fortress Monroe, Va., and at Fort Benicia, California.
Mr. Meagher happened to show the letter to H. T. Spoerry, bat supposed that
his work had been for naught But something seemed to suddenly strike Mr.
Spoerry, and he said "We want two cannon." "What for?" asked Meagher. "For
a long time, we have been asked occasionally to send money east for the erection
of soldiers' monuments, and why not erect one right here in Columbus to oar own
common rank and file?"
J. H. Galley was at the time commander of Baker Post No. 9, and to him the
two comrades went with their happy thought, and the result was that at the next
meeting of the post a monument committee was appointed consisting of J. H
Galley, H. T. Spoerry, J. R Meagher, D. N. Miner, E. O. Rector, & L Rosstter
and Ed. W. Clark.
Designs were advertised for, a subscription paper started, two cannon were
brought from Benicia, Calif., one weighing 3575 pounds, the other 3568, and the
site of the monument was located finally in the middle of Frankfort square.
A contract was made with Kimball Brothers of Lincoln for the erection of
the monument, which is 30 feet high. The heaviest stone weighs about 16,000
pounds, and is 9x9 feet; the die is 4 feet square and 4J high, and on it are cut 132
names. The stone column is surmounted by bronze eagle with a spread of 6 feet;
the two cannon with the muzzles pointing south, are placed on pedestals, one on
the east, the other on the west of the column these pedestals 3 feet square and 4
There are said to be thirty tons of stone in the foundation and thirty-five tons
above ground. The monument is of Barre, Vermont, granite, rough, except the die.
The actual cost of the monument is reckoned in round numbers at $2,400, be
sides the cannon, which cost the freight, $99.75.
The contract with the Kimball Brothers was signed by Commander Galleyt
Quartermaster Spoerry and Adjutant Meagher, but in the absence of Mr. Meagher,
the main part of the work of looking after the funds, etc., has fallen upon the
other two, and the monument is a credit to all concerned in its erection. The
names on the monument are:

C. J. Rundell of Wayne was in the
city Wednesday night, the guest of J. S.
Freeman. He says that the Nebraska &
Gulf Railroad company have sold about
$50,000 in stock, have made survey of
seventy miles from Davenport Nebraska,
to north of the Platte, and have secured
the greater portion of the right of way
for that distance. Several precincts in
Polk county have bond propositions now
pending, and it is expected that the
bonds will carry. It is thought that the
road will cross the river near Genoa and
go up the Looking Glass.
The four-room house occupied by
Clyde Ward, the barber, one door east of
the Lindell hotel, Eleventh street, and
owned by F. H. Rusche, caught fire
Friday forenoon about eleven, but it was
only a few minutes until the flames were
most thoroughly squelched by water, the
small house being quickly covered by
the subduing flood. The fire originated
in the kitchen with an oil stove, and the
flame, it was thought, had been subdued
by the bucket brigade, but it broke out
again at the roof, and the alarm was
turned in. There was no insurance on
the building. A good part of the furni
ture was saved from the water.
The populists held their county
convention at Platte Center Saturday, at
2 o'clock, J. S. Freeman, chairman;

delegates chosen for the State conven
tion were: Ed. Van Allen, J. C. Byrnes,
A. W. Clark, John Clayburn, Thomas

A. D. White was the guest of Sheriff
Patterson from Saturday night until
Tuesday forenoon. A raid was made on
bis drug store at St Edward Saturday
night and considerable liquor was found.
A trap door had been cut in th& floor of
the building and a place arranged under
neath in which to keep bottles contain
ing liquor. This place was so ingenious
ly covered with office furniture that it
would have been difficult to discover,
and probably would not have been dis
covered had not August Rouecb, one of
White's former employes, got on the
"outs" with him and told of the Becret
chamber. Mr. White gave bonds in the
sum of $1,000 Tuesday to appear before
the district court, and took the morning
train for St. Edward. Albion News.
We learn that Mr. White has already ex
pended about $2,000 in his endeavor to
bid defiance to the law, and to the wishes
of the community as expressed in their

for many years, suffering from partial
paralysis. We had not seen him since
he became an invalid, and remember him
as a strong, healthy man, active, bright,
very much attached to his friends, and
having his manhood's life mainly before
him. During the more than half a cen
tury of bis career Mr. Slemmons has had
much more than the usual experience,
but "after life's fitful fever," his mortal
remains lie buried in the beautiful ceme
tery at Cadiz, Ohio, and his spirit has
returned to the God who gave it He
leaves two sons, Allen and Mendel.
