Our national prosperity depends upon

The probability is that Nebraska will
have an admirable governor in Mr.
Savage, who has taken hold where Mr.
Dietrich left off. Mr. Savage is built on
the homely plan of the horny-handed
farmer; he has not been educated in
courts, he has not spent his days in halls
of dazzling light; he has communed
with nature a good deal, and has come
to the same conclusion that David
Crocket arrived at that it is be6t to
know yon are right, ann then go ahead.
He will not be very popular with some
of the politicians, because there is noth
ing of the oily-tongued stranger in his
make-up; he is a man of few words, but
every word fie uses drives a nail. He
has been unable to see the sense of say
ing yea when he means nay, and conse
quently bis promises are good, although
he is slow about making them. Although
he has something of the air of the hus
bandman who arrives in town on circus
day, anybody who sizes him up as a fit
subject for green goods operations will
be badly left; he knows a hawk from a
handsaw a mile's distance, and he is an
excellent judge of men. Being honest,
fearless and patriotic, he will make an
excellent governor, and Nebraska repub
licans will be pointing to him with pride
before he has been in effect very long.

The sudden illness of Mrs. McKinley
caused an unexpected change in the
President's program. Mrs. McKinley
needs rest, and Dr. Rixey made the fol
lowing statement at C o'clock Sunday
evening, at San Francisco: "Mrs. Mc
Kinley stood the trip from Del Monte
much bettor than I expected. Her con
dition is not serious. She will stay here
at least a week and have perfect rest. I
think by that time she will be able to
continue the journey. She has been
gaining strength all afternoon." The
day after leaving New Orleans a bone
felon appeared upon Mrs. McKinley's
finger. Her hand became swollen, gave
her considerable pain and produced
fever, which prevented her from sleeping.
Dr. Rixey lanced the felon twice and
gave her some relief in that way.
Another stop in the progress of the
United States toward its destined posi
tion at the head of creditor nations is
indicated by the taking for this money
market of the whole issue of a loan
negotiated by the city of Frankfort.
The amount is not so very great, $3,750,
000, but it is the first time that the whole
issue of a long term bond of a German
municipality has been placed in New
York. Money is cheaper here than there,
and a portion of the large current in
debtedness of Europe to the United
States for manufactured goods, as well
as food and raw materials, will be settled
for by this bond issue in place of money.

William Watson met with a painful
and what might easily have been a
serious accident, last week. It was the
clothesline story. Mr. Watson was
trimming trees with an ax and the ax
caught the line and landed on the side of
his head, cutting him quite severely and
knocking out a tooth. Mr. Watson says
he can understand how the head got cut,
but the losing of a tooth is a mystery.
For a year past the artesian well in
the United States custom house at New
Orleans had been clogged up by gas
which prevented the piston from work
ing. Last Wednesday engineer Fink
turned on the faucet of the reservoir and
touched a match to it. A clear flame
burned steadily, and it is pronounced the
best quality of illuminating gas. The
well is 800 feet deep.

A record run through Nebraska was
made Friday afternoon by the Union
Pacific fast mail, which covered the 153
miles between Grand Island and Omaha
in 150 minutes. This time was ton min
utes under the previous record. The
speed was made possible by perfect
weather and the faultless operation of
the huge locomotive, No. 1800, Mike
Decker at the throttle. The train left
Grand Island behind time and took a
sixty mile pace on the outset West of
North Bend the train was covering 75
miles of prairie an hour and between
North Bend and Omaha reached the
eighty mile mark for some distance.
The mail drew into Omaha on time at
5:40 o'clock, having made as rapid along
distance run as any train ever accom
plished in the west. Central City Non

Moses K. Turner of The Columbus
Journal was in the city on business the
first of the week. Turner is one of the
oldest newspaper men in the state, and
his biography deserves to occupy a con
spicuous page in the history of Nebraska
now in tne bands of tne intelligent
printer. He started the paper, of which
he has been editor from the first, a trifle
over thirty-one years ago, and hasn't
missed an issue or a meal from that time
to the present moment. When he came
to Nebraska he was in the very blush and
hey day of young manhood and as full of
hope as he is now full of years and wis
dom gained by gobs of rich experience.
All these years he has printed one of the
best local papers in the state, and has
raised a large and very excellent family.
At one time Mr. Turner, though a repub
lican, was elected to represent Platte
county in the legislature, and afterward
came near breaking into congress. Of
late he has been jogging quietly along,
disseminating the news of central Ne
braska with undiminished accuracy and
zeal. "When the roll is called up yon
der," if men are rewarded according to
the deeds done in their days of nature,
Moses K. Turner will be assigned a
cushioned seat in the parquet, right
alongside of Elisha and Joshua.
One of the neglected things of last
week's issue of The Journal was a fail
ure to mention the special edition of the
Telegram of May 3. containing, besides
the usual summary of local news, a
special, three-page write-up of the city
and of many of its business firms. If we
could do &o, we would duplicate in quo
tation all the articles of the Telegram's
issue, but as we cannot, we give what is
THE COLUMBUS JOURNAL.
A review of the business interests of
this city wonld be incomplete without
favorable mention of The Journal, one
of the oldest newspapers in the state.
Indeed we believe it is the oldest under
one management. It was launched in
1870, and from that day to this has never
missed an issue. M K. Turner & Co.
were in charge at the start, and have
continued in control until now. The
present makeup is M. K. Turner, editor;
Miss Martha Turner, associate editor; J.
A. Turner, foreman; G. W. and F. C.
Turner, compositors. Through all the
years the paper has battled for republi
can principles and for the good of
Columbus and Platte county. It is dis
tinctly a family newspaper, always clean
and pure in tone, avoiding sensationalism
of every type. The business policy has
always been "live and let live," its man
agement holding that there is room in
the world for all who come into it with
good intentions. The people of this city
and county owe much to this staid and
reliable old newspaper, and the liberal
patronage it always receives is proof that
its efforts are fully appreciated.

Mayor Ragatz called a meeting of the
citizens Monday afternoon in the coun
cil chamber to discuss with the U. P.
officials the location of the new freight
depot E. Dickinson, general manager,
R. W. Baxter, superintendent, and Edson
Rich, attorney, were all present.
After the officials of the U. P. had ex
plained their present plans, an open dis
cussion was called for by the mayor.
R. W. Baxter olaimed that the amount
of switching across the' streets would be
reduced by their new plan of tracks. ,
, L. Jaeggi thought the depot should be
placed east of Schroeder's mill or on or
west of the present location. He said
that the switching of the engines was a
constant annoyance to farm teams, that
brought grain to the mills, and that in
the day time, when most of the switch
ing was done, was when the farmers
were in town.
G. A. Schroeder made about the same
L. Gerrard thought the railroad com
pany ought to know what they were
doing and thought if they said there
would be lees switching done by the new
plan of tracks that they knew what they
were talking about.
I. GInck said he thought the depot
should be east or west of M street.
With the freight depot on M, there
would practically be three streets cut off,
M, L, and K. He said there were very
few people who went to the freight
depot, and that it would be just as con
venient to place the depot a few blocks
east or west of M street. ,
S. C. Gray said there were undoubtedly
two sides, and if both were fairly con
sidered, both the city and the railroad
company should be benefited. Mr. Gray
called attention to the present location
of the freight depot, having been an
injury to the surrounding property. He
said the company talked about their not
doing so much switching near the depot
as at present, but he could, not see how
they could get their freight to the depot
without switching. Mr. Gray closed by
saying I do object and shall object to the
depot being built in the business part
of the city.
J. E. North said he was willing to take
the word of the company's officials who
were successful business men, and said
he was always in favor of improvements
for the city.
Mr. Dickinson was asked if the com
pany would accept the proposition de
cided on by a committee. He said that
they would listen to a proposition but
not promise to accept it.
After considerable discussion on both
sides it was decided to leave the appoint
ment to the mayor of a committee of six
citizens to confer with the company's
officials. Mayor Ragatz appointed G.
W. Lehman, I. Gluck, L. Gerrard, Geo.
Scott, A. Jaeggi and H. Oehlrich.
No specified time was given for the
committee to report to the council.

"evangellstas" who ply their trade In
the Plazuela de Belem and the Plazue

ate In the former spot make a specialty
of writing letters to the Inmates of the
prison for their Illiterate relatives on
the outside, but the "evangellstas" who
may be seen any day In the Plazuela of
Santo Domingo do a general business.
They write love letters, blackmailing
letters and all sorts of letters for those
who do not know how to write at a
rate of 3, C, 9 or more cents, according
to the length of the missive. They
also undertake without extra charge to
write the address on the envelope and
to attach the required stamp, but for
the latter they make an extra charge
of a cent. It Is hardly necessary to
state that only very Ignorant people,
who are totally unacquainted even

how to write, have recourse to the
