A BUSINESS CHANGE.
Last Saturday afternoon papers were
Burned whereby Tas CbCHDUB J
DroDerty tinno iana the fcaade
IL Abbott of Fresaaat aa4 8tofwajtKW
nedy of St. Edvavi. , Ife Aabotris at
present engaged in the insurance busi
ness. He is a man of literary attain-'
.meats, having attended both the Iowa
and Nebraska state universities, gradu
ating from the Iowa institution in both
the general and. law courses and was a
few years ago the city superintendent
of schools in Albion, this state.
Mr. Kennedy is editor of the St, Ed
ward Advance, which he will continue
to publish in connection with this paper.
He is a young man respected in his home
town, where he and his parents have
made their residence for many years.
Mr. Kennedy was a member of the First
Nebraska regiment and served in the
Philippines during the Spanish-American
war and has made a decided success,
in his undertakings in the newspaper
field. We believe The Journal will be
in worthy hands under Messrs. Abbott
& Kennedy, who will take entire charge
of the plant April 1.
With the selling of The Journal the
Turner family dispose of one of the
oldest established business institutions
in this part of the state. At the time of
its first publication, May 11, 1870, there
was but one other paper west of Fre
mont, and that was a publication at
Grand Island, with Seth P. Mobley as
editor. There are few business men in
Columbus today who were engaged at
that time in the trades or professions.
and to our knowledge there is no busi
ness firm at the present time which has
remained so long under the same firm
name and management as The Jouknal.
Next week the office will be transferred
bnt friends of the paper who have given
it unstinted patronageforsomany years,
may be assured that they will not be
disappointed, as we have every reason
to believe that the paper under the new
regime will meet the growing needs of
the city, county and state, under the
direction of these able, energetic gen
tlemen. Next week we will have more to say,
in somewhat of a personal way.
The Brooklyn Eagle (dem.) sent a staff
correspondent out to Nebraska to look
over the field politically, ascertaining the
condition of democracy, and from an
extended article we clip the following: -
"Mr. Bryan has not yet rounded up the
Nebraska democracy for Editor Hearst.
There are the best of grounds for saying
that he will never do it. In every essen
tial the Nebraska situation is distinctly
unfavorable to Mr. Hearst's candidacy,
and especially is it unfavorable in the
camp of Bryanism. Mr. Herdman, who
has been affiliated with Mr. Bryan until
recently, is opposed to the reaffirmation
of the Kansas City platform. Mr. Herd-
man claims and some of Mr. Bryan's
best friends concede, that three-fourths
of the Nebraska democrats are opposed
to it. It is not so certain to be defeated
as this would imply, however, because
all of Mr. Bryan's friends are determined
that he shall not be humiliated in his
own state if they can help it. At the
state central committee meeting at Lin
coln the reorganizers sprung a resolution
to endorse ex-Judge John J. Sullivan of
Columbus as the Nebraska candidate for
vice president and the Bryanites were so
surprised that they offeredno opposition.
Former Judge Sullivan's candidacy will
probably, if it is followed by instructions
at the state convention, prevent any
attempted delivery of the Nebraska del
egation to Mr. Hearst. It is evidently
the sincere intention of the Nebraskans
to do all they can to bring about Mr.
Sullivan's nomination. His friends are
mainly the friends of Judge Parker. He
has been in harmony with Mr. Bryan in
state politics recently, but he was in
18 and 1900 affiliated with the conser
vative democrats. He is popular with
the rank and file of Nebraska democratic
voters and has much influence with the
From a Lincoln correspondent of the
Bee, Judge Sullivan is quoted as saying:
"I appreciate the good will shown by the
committee, but I am afraid that I am
partially committed to John L. Webster,
so it would ill become me to get out and
fight for the place, as it is not likely that
the two vice presidents would come from
tbe same state."
The Fremont Tribune admits in the
following item taken from its pages, that
the Loup river is what may be depended
upon for canal power: The alarm
sounded concerning the stage of water
in the Platte need not scare anybody
who has the development of the power
canal in mind. The Platte is an inter
mittent stream at best, above the month
of the Loup. It depends for its moist
ure principally upon the snowfall in the
mountains of Colorado, and when there
has been little of it there, as has been
the situation this winter, the river is
sure to be pretty dry and in need of
irrigating next summer. But down this
way. below the confluence with the
Loup, there is water enough for all. The
Loup is fed by a myriad of never failing
springs up in the sand hilk and the
Platte's volume below Columbus is as
steadfast and dependable as a Mormon's
fifth wife. The wheels that may lie
hitched to a dynamo driven by the Fre
mont power canal will never cease to
revolute on account of more or less snow
on Pike's, Long's, Ute, Hahn's and the
thousands of other peaks that lift their
giant heads to the cold, gray sky."
For stern bravado, says tbe United
States Magazine, it would be hard to
rival the feat of Ensign Gillie, who saw
a stray torpedo coming slowly but surely
toward the anchored torpedo boat Por
ter in the Spaniah-Americaa war. He
sprang overboard, turned the nose of tbe
torpedo in a safer direction and screwed
up the firing pin tightly so that it would
not operate. Then treading water, he
saluted Lieutenant Fremont and report
ed: "Sir, I have captured a torpedo."
"Bring it on board, air," commanded
Fremont, and Gillis actually did so,
swimming with it to tbe ship and fasten
ing tackle to it
Nearly all republican county conven
tions so far held in the state have psssnil

The Salvation Army, after carrying on
its business in Omaha for seventeen
years without a home, has purchased the
old First Methodist church at the price
of $9,500. The Army last year held 376
street meetings, 468 indoor meetings and
104 services for young people and chil
dren. Iaacaln'LtttarT '
So far as the democratic state central
committee is concerned, Mr. Bryan is no
longer Nebraska's favorite son, but
Judge Sullivan holds that proud posi
tion. Under the masterful guidance of
jolly, rotund and industrious Lee Herd
man, clerk of. the supreme courts and the
"Foxy Grandpa" of the Nebraska democ
racy, the committee at a meeting held in
the Lindell parlors endorsed Judge Sul
livan for the vice-presidency without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
peerless leader on earth.
While the friends of Mr. Bryan fell in
with the current there is no question
but that they would have breasted it if
they could. Upon a teat vote Mr. Bryan
mustered 17 unterrified followers of tbe
old-time silver-plated platforms while
the reorganizers were bnt 14. Here is
where Herdman the foxy, exhibited his
foxiness. He was not opposed to Mr.
Bryan. O Dear No! He would not do
anything to offend or harass Mr. Bryan
for the world, but very quietly and very
unostentatiously it was suggested that
it would be a clever thing to endorse
Judge Sullivan for tbe vice-presidency,
just in order to pay a fitting tribute to
the party idol The tribute was paid and
the democrats of the 'country will be
allowed to draw their own conclusions
from the fact that Nebraska is asking
the national convention to nominate
Certainly Nebraska, gall-steeped as
her democratic contingent is, would not
have the supreme audacity to ask for the
first and second places on the national
ticket, and at the same time dictate the
platform. Nebraska seems to have made
her choice and asked for what she wants;
the logical conclusion is that there are
things which she doesn't want, or feels
able to live without.
The average cost of maintaining the
state game and fish commission from the
date of its organization until the begin
ning of last year was $3G0 per annum.
Last year the net cost to the state was
$1,620. When due consideration has
been given to the fact that more work
was done in every branch of the business
than in any preceding year it will be
seen that Warden Carter and his assist
ants have been giving the state treasury
a fighting chance for its life.
Warden Carter favors a change in the
law with regard to hunting and fishing
licenses and believes that tbe depart
ment can be made more than self-sus
taining if a small fee is exacted of every
sportsman no matter where he hunts or
fishes. A fee of fifty cents per year for
sporting within or without the bounda
ries of your own county would be about
right, so Mr. Carter believes, atad he
favors legislation to that effect.
Protect the Trees.
"Woodman, pare that tree.
Touch not a single bough;
In yooth it sheltered me.
And I'll protect it now."
A few of the lovers of nature have been
watching the slaughter of shade trees in
Columbus, and finally have decided to
band themselves together in an effort to
H. E. Babcock, H. A. Clark, M. Brag
ger and others will endeavor to create
more interest in the shade trees, and
especially to pledge their influence
against the process now in vogue in
Columbus of cutting back the tops of
The following good reasons they say,
are among the many why this should be
First It is contrary to nature. It
deforms the tree, and nature abhors de
formity as it does a vacuum.
Second When the tree is mutilated,
nature, in its effort to heal the wounds,
throws out many sprouts, which, in time,
become branches, and we see many
branches as a result where only one was
intended, and the smaller and weaker
branches must die, as there is not room
for all, and this leaves the ugly appear
ance of numerous dead branches, all
unnecessary. In winter it gives the
appearance of a tangle, and shows nature
distorted. In summer it makes the tree
appear too low and bushy.
Third The true artist, or landscape
gardener, endeavors to "hold the mirror
up to nature," and while pruning is nec
essary, it should be done only when
necessary to preserve the balance of the
tree, or where branches are too thick, or
where they parallel each other, under
some circumstances to affect the vitality
or frnitfulnessof .the tree, and to prevent
the growth of two branches of about
equal sise into a fork or crotch in the
tree, but never by cutting all the
branches leaving miserable stubs, and
resulting in little less than wholesale
Fourth It is labor wasted.
Fifth It is contrary to all National or
other great parka.
Sixth It causes undesirable, and in
excusable results, which become irreme
diable if once perpetrated, and mar the
beauty of our streets and lawns for all
time, aad oar remedy lies in prevention.
The Nebraska school ior theblind at
Nebraska City gave an exceedingly inter
esting entertsiaaieat last Tuesday even-
ing at aorta opera nouas, oat it is a
deplorable fact- that there was a very
small audience present. Tbe anfortu
aates of the United States are well pro
vided for in many ways, and one listen
ing to tbe v musical program, or the
various exereiatsiageoutetry, geography,
eta, could not help comparing their
opportunities to that of ancient times, or
even a few years ago when the deaf and
blind were little lees than outcasts in
society. The musical department of the
school is underrate dirsatioa of Prof.
Loeb, a former ColamboB.reaiient, and
in tbe selections given Tuesday even
ing the pupils aaawed iMraad ability
and training. Prof. Loeb has-been with
tbe school five years. -
Next week Columbus will entertain
in the neighborhood of six hundred peo
ple, the teachers of the North, Nebraska
sssoeistioa. The majority of the anm
ber will be ladies, and if they do as much
shopping as tbe visitors during the asso
ciation last year, the merchants will
profit by their presence.. On account of
the large number of strangers, it will be
necessary for residents here to provide
room and board for many, as the hotels
are nearly always crowded with their
usual customers. The teachers come
prepared to pay their own expenses, and
our town people should see to it that
they find pleasant homes and leave the
city .feeling that they have had an enjoy
able as well as profitnll gathering.
Last Wednesday evening a team of
horses and buggy belonging to J. F.
Stems was stolen from tbe street near
Grays' store where the owner had hitched
it In the buggy were two robes, afur
overcoat and some shoes. The outfit
was found Saturday morning, the horses
tied to a telephone pole south of the
Loup river at Genoa where the man had
evidently intended to cross, but finding
the bridge out left them on the other
side. Everything was taken from the
buggy but a grip which proved to be one
lost by Court Reporter Blake Maber,
who missed it while waiting for the Nor
folk train to leave Wednesday evening.
Nothing was taken from the grip which
contained documents valuable to him
only. Sheriff Carrig is still on the trail
of the thief and hopes soon to land him
in the county jail.
Miss Myrtle Mills, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Mills living in the
north part of town, died this morning
about half past 8 o'clock at her parents'
home, after an illness of about two
months. Myrtle was afflicted with pnen-
monia a few weeks ago, the disease leav
ing her constitution in a frail condition,
which could not be bnilt up and all that
loving friends and relatives could do,
availed nothing. About the last hour
and among her last words, she sang one
entire verse of "Shall We Gather at the
River ?" Myrtle was a young lady about
18 years of age and had bright prospects
and hopes for the future. She was be
loved by all who knew her on account
of her kind and gentle disposition. She
leaves her parents, one brother and one
sister to mourn the loss of a young life
out short in the bloom of womanhood.
Tbe Juniors of the High school were
entertained Wednesday evening by Miss
Mamie Elliott, John Elliott and Miss
Anna Rossiter at the Elliott home.
Progressive flinch was the amusement
and Miss Lillian Adams and Mr. Philip
Smith (the latter a guest) received the
prizes. The Juniors heard late in the
evening that the Seniors would visit
them with the intention of breaking up
the party, so the crowd prepared for the
enemy. A hat belonging to one of the
boys was captured by a Junior and thor
oughly destroyed. Upon opening a door
Miss Anna Rossiter had a quantity of
acid thrown in her' face and for a time
she suffered greatly, the fluid penetrat
ing her eyes. The little Elliott girl also
received a portion of the acid in her face.
Tbe teachers are indignant with regard
to the action and Prof. Kern says he does
not approve of such conduct in the least.
Samuel Galley, brother of J. H. and
George Galley of this city, died suddenly
Saturday noon at his home in Creighton,
Nebraska, death probably caused from
heart trouble. J. H. Galley and Mrs. C
A. Brindley went to Creighton Sunday
to return Tnesday with the family of
Mr. Galley and the remains. Funeral
services were held today (Tuesday) at 1
o'clock in the Congregational church in
this city, Rev. Munro conducting the
services, and the remains were laid to
rest in the Columbus cemetery. Mr.
Galley was well known to Columbus
people, having been for many years a
resident of this city and county, and was
held in the highest esteem by all who
were favored with his acquaintance.
The deceased was born August 6, 1834,
in Cheshire, England. He came directly
from there to Utah in 1853 where he
resided until 1859, at which time he came
to this county. For a number of years
he was engaged in farming and in 1872,
while in that capacity, he became a part
ner with his brother J. H. Galley in the
dry goods business, the same store which
is now owned by Mr. Galley of this city.
In 1881 Mr. Galley moved to Creighton
where he conducted a dry goods store
for himself and brother, and which he
sold in January of this year. He also
owned a store in Lynch, Nebraska. Mr.
Galley was married in Columbus in 1868
to Miss Lettuce Brindley, sister of
Charles, George and Hiram Brindley, all
of this city. Besides his wife, he leaves
two daughters, Misses Amy and Martha,
two brothers, J. H. and George of this
city, and two Bisters, Mrs. Barrow of
Salt Lake City and Mrs. S. A. Rickly of
Creighton to mourn their loss.
The city council met Friday evening.
J. F. Barney presented a request asking
permission to move the city fire bell
tower, as be wishes to improve his prop
erty on Eleventh street by taking down
the sheds now there and rebuilding in a
better and more substantial manner.
He states in his request that he would
move the tower to any location ordered
free of cost to the city, and suggests two
locations, one east of Krug's beer vault,
the other east of the hook and ladder
truck house. The matter was referred
to the fire committee with power to act.
Reports ware received from the chief of
police, F. A. Hagel, from J. M. Curtis,
police judge,- Bert J. Galley, treasurer,
and from C. From overseer of streets.
The pohce report one arrest of a party
for becoming intoxicated and leaving his
team standing uncovered in cold weather.
The committee on fin recommended that
tbe city purchase one lantern, one ex
panding machine for repairing, broken
hose, and 500 feet of new hose. They
also recommended that tbe fire com
mittee be instructed to repair both fire
belle ia good shape, aad that engineers
at the waterworks be ordered to blow
tbe fire whistle as near correct as the
fire alarm cards call for. The same com
mittee also recommended that notice be
given to the manager of North opera
house to have put in on the stage, two
stand pipes with good faucets to which
hose may be attached, also 50 feet of hose
at each stand pipe and that whan the
house is ia use one fireman shall be
aUtieaed at each of these stand piaae
readyjto aae the water, ia case of a fire.
Also' that all 'doors Ja made to open to
