The democrata had exceedingly warm
times at their primaries Thursday, but
the greatest excitement waa reserved for
the first ward in Columbus. Over one
hundred men were on- hand long before
the time set to organize and all day long
the main fight was between the so-called
"court house ring" and the antis. The
friends of the old ring won out.
Columbus will get s lot of free
advertising this week. The county,
judicial and state conventions of the
democrata will bring a large number of
strangers to the city. About six hundred
of the state delegates sre expected to
arrive before evening. The Lincoln del
egation arrives at about 430 this after
noon on a epecial train which will take
them home after the convention.
R. W. Finecy, who has been living in
Ft. Collins, Colorado, the past year,
arrived in the city Thursday and will
visit friends in this section several weeks
before returning to his old home in
Illinois. He brought with him some fine
specimens of ore, also an arrow head
made out of moon atone and considered
quite valuable. Mr. Finecy'a health was
not the beet during his stay in Colorado,
hence the change.
Among the early arrivals to the dem
ocratic state convention which will be
held this evening in North opera house,
are: W. H. Oldham, Kearney; Mayor
Reed of Kansas City; Carl Wright, city
attorney of Omaha; EL E. Herdman,
clerk of supreme court, Omaha; Har

Word has reached us that farmers
living across the rivers have noticed in
dications of ergot forming in the hay,
principally on the wild rye, blue grass
and timothy. The first seen was about
one week ago, and since then the hot
weather has developed it to a consider
able extent. The Kummer Bro&, who
lost about $1,500 in stock on account of
it last year, say that the farmers should
watch the hay, and keep their stock
from that infected by ergo, early in the
season, in order to prevent great loss.
Mrs. Homer Robinson entertained a
jolly crowd of young people at her home
Thursday afternoon in honor of her
niece Miss Helen Butler of Chicago, who
leaves in September for her home. Three
peanut games kept the little folks busy;
the first was to search for peanuts, the
one finding the least number receiving a
prize. The next game was to carry a
knife, upon the blade of which waa
pilled nuts, across the room, and the
next was to determine who could hold
the largest number in a handful. The
prizes were awarded to Louise Bucher,
Dorothy Post snd North Evans res
pectively. A recent letter from Mrs. E. W.
Glidden, a former teacher in our schools,
to a friend here, tells of her work in
Mercur, Utah, in which place she has
been employed as primary teacher in the
public schools the past year, and has
been re-employed for the same position
for the next year at an increase of salary.
She says teachers are paid much better
there and the work is easier than in this
state, and her only regret is that she did
not go sooner. Mrs. Glidden hss been
spending the summer in and around Salt
Lake City with the family of L L
Searles former Columbus citizens who
now reside in that city.
Some of the opposing parties are
trying to make believe that there is much
trouble among the republicans of the
county when the facta are that it is
exactly the reverse. There has not been
a more harmonious meeting of either
democrata or republicans for years, than
that which was held in Platte Center.
The delegates were there to transact
business for the beet interests of the
county. J. G. Reader was given the
privilege to name the delegates to the
judicial convention, which he did in but

Ed Smatlan went up to Columbus
yesterday to look over the brick yards
there and to examine their brick rela
tive to transacting business with the
firm if the bricks are found satisfactory,,
says Friday's Schuyler Free Lance.
Had a brick yard been put in Schuyler
instead of a chicory factory it would be
of some good to the city, snd not be a
monument to some foolishness and a
relic of a case wherein our citizens who
wanted to do something for the city
were skinned out of their money. In
stead of putting in a chicory factory
which has proven a failure everywhere
or talking a canning factory which is
also a "fizzle" as a general thing, a brick
yard should be established and make a
staple article which we use at home and
could ehip the surplusages abroad. It
would mean employment and busim
For several weeks psst this city has
been bothered by a burglar or burglars
who have entered houses, always in the
residence portions. The home of L.
Jaeggi was entered one night last week,
the burglar gaining entrance through a
back window. The man could be dis
tinctly heard down stairs but before the
women folks, who were alone in the
house, could call aid he waa frightened
away. At the home of Peter Luchainger
a watch and other jewelry have been
stolen. A. Heintz had a gold watch and
fifteen cents in change taken last Tues
day night, and about two weeks sgo at
the Grand Pacific hotel Mr. Brock had a
gold watch and nearly ilO in money
stolen. Other houses that have been dis
turbed by some one prowling about are
L H. Britell, Mrs. Miles Ryan, D. Schup
bach and E. H. Putman. At the latter
place the intruder tried to gain entrance
to the house before the family had
Misses Angie Early and Emma Neu
marker entertained about one hundred
and fifty guests Saturday evening et the
Early home, in honor of John Early,
John Neumarkerand Fred Saffron. The
beautiful lawn waa brilliantly illumina
ted with torch lights snd Japanese lan
terns and furnished with numerous
hammocks snd easy chairs. The even
ing was passed in a very informal way,
the crowd being entertained by a few of
the young gentlemen under the leader
ship of John Early in a unique and
original list of attractions generally seen
down "Midway," and seldom witnessed
with more genuine enjoyment than was
displayed Saturday evening. Among
the side shows were: "Beck, the Ham
that Am," "Lloyd Swain in Faust,"
singing birds, dancing, minstrel war
blers, etc., were rushed in rapid succes
sion and the crowd were kept in good
spirits by the local humorits. Refresh
ments were served snd the crowd dis
persed before midnight.
The city council met Isst Friday
evening in regular session. D. MoDuffy
appeared before the board requesting
that the ditch on the north and west
sides of block 42 be filled. The matter
was referred to the committee on streets
and grades. A. Heintz asked the coun
cil to enter into a contract with him for
the furnishing of electric street lights
for a term of years. The request was
referred to the committee on public
property and waterworks. The council
and mayor accepted an invitation by the
fire department to appear in parade on
firemen's day which will be celebrated
September 7th. The council, upon rec
ommendation of the committee on streets
and grades, ordered Seventeenth street
to be graded. A permanent crossing
wss ordered made over M street on the
north side of Eleventh. C. M. Taylor
resigned his position as chief of police
and Mayor Becher named Frank A.
Hagel as his successor. The appoint
ment was confirmed by the council.
A few weeks ago A. L. Bixby gently
hinted through his "Daily Drift" column
in the Lincoln Journal that an invitation
to be in Columbus the day of the demo
cratic state convention would be accept
able, and should C. H. Sheldon leave his
light burning a half hour after train
time he would be glad to be his guest,
etc., etc Miss Elizabeth Sheldon imme
diately invited both Mr. and Mrs. Bixby
to be their guest on the big day but
reminded him that the pumpkins had
not yet been husked and therefore there
would be no pumpkin pies, as he had
modestly requested there would be. The
following is Mr. Bixby's reply: "My

An interesting letter was received
recently from Archibald J. Sampson the
U. S. minister to Ecuador, South Amer
ic, that many of our readers wonld enjoy
reading. Mr. Sampson is a relative of
the Turner family here and has in yenra
past made many visits to Columbus. We
quote parts of the letter which are entire
ly of a public nature: "For the hist six
months our mails have been very irreg
ular on account of quarantine at Guaya
quil. I send my mail pouch ont each
week, but have been advised that they
got no farther than Guayaquil until
there were five or six of them here. As
there were no steamers either coming or
going, we failed to get any mail for some
time. Your winter must have lingered
'in the lap of spring.' We are in the
middle of winter now, yet eating fresh
ripe apples, while the' apple blossoms
have come for another crop. We also
have many other kinds of fresh ripe
fruits and berries. We have as many as
an average of twenty kinds of frnita and
berries each month in the year. Onr
winter is your summer. It seems odd to
us, even yet, to have the sun pass from
esst to west by the north instead of by
the south. When summer comes it will
pass by the south instead of by the
north. We are now located in Guapulo
one-half hour distant from Quito (in this
country they always say it is so much
time to a place snd not miles.) It is
lower snd wanner than Quito. The
legation when we are away is occupied
by Mr. Hallock of San Francisco, who is
director of public works of Ecuador.
We had over twenty Indians come in to
move us out rugs, mattresses, stove,
charcoal, potatoes and many other things.
Each carried 100 to 200 pounds and each
waa to receive less than twenty cents of
our money. They had to go in about
three miles and carry out such a load for
such a price. What would laborers in
the United States think of such wages?
For a small package, one will go there
for leas than ten cents. You ought to
have seen the church procession that
came down here from Quito the other
day. More than one thousand walked
snd were here before 6 a.m. They came
singing, praying, reciting, counting their
