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 feet high. 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: Adams H L Co. H 27 111. C1US E 41 Wise A3Ind Inf.

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; Clarence Gerrard, secretary. A resolu tion was passed, favoring fusion, and as a candidate for vice president, a populist or a free silver republican.

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 ordinances. The funeral of E.
