With this iemin of The Joubxal- the Turner family will transCsr all their
interests ia the plant to Mr. Kennedy of St Edward and Mr. Abbott of Fre
mont as stated ia our last issue After nearly thirty-four years of newspaper
work under the same firm name the paper will be turned over to two eater

as the years go by and the town grows to become the best city in central
May 11, 1870, The ocbnal was established by M. K. Turner & Co, the
members of the company being Allen C. Turner and his son Moses Kennedy
Turner, who came directly here from Cadiz, Ohio. The senior member died
in 1891 and M. K. Turner passed away in 1902. Since then, relatives who had
been connected with the working force of the offlce have continued the busi
ness in the same firm name.
In reviewing the years of the existence of The Journal would be to give
the history of the development of Nebraska, for a local paper was not limited
to one county and its surrounding territory, in those early days.
The Jourkal in the early days chronicled the news not only of Platte,
but Madison, Stanton, Merrick, Polk, Butler, Dodge and Colfax counties.
Omaha was thought and spoken of as a near-by town. Settlers from where
Oakdale and Norfolk are now located, came to Columbus to do their trading,
and one of the features of The Joubnai. was to give interesting and truthful
accounts of the country, in an effort to encourage immigration.
With the exception of the Golden Age, a paper which was published just
twelve issues in the year 1S66 in Columbus by C. C. Strawn, and another, the
Platte Valley Journal, of one year's duration by O. T. B. Williams, The
Journal is the first publication in the city, and probably the oldest in the
state west of Omaha which has been maintained under tbe same firm name. "
The press now used to print the pages of The Journal is one which was
used by E. Bosewater for the first issues of the Omaha Daily Bee, which was
established in 1871. The press today, like much of the machinery made in
those days, seems to be as good as new, and turns ont as clear a print as any
of the latest inventions.
In the opening announcement of the publishers of The Journal, they
stated that the paper would be conducted along independent lines, that is
"saying what we think on any subject which we choose to write upon without
feeling under any obligation whatever to do our thinking second handed."
This policy has been continued throughout all these years.
Politically. The Journal has always represented republican doctrine, and
has endeavored at all times to advocate the best interests of that Grand Old
Party, which we believe represents today, as it did thirty-four years ago, and
has done continually during all the intervening years, the best interests of the
whole people of the United States. The publishers never contemplated
changing their political views, for the reason that no other party at any time
seemed to meet the needs of the many as did the republican.
To our correspondents who have assisted us very materially in the gath
ering of news, we wish to say that yours is an important place to fill, in the
maintaining of a country newspaper. .We have not had a great number of
these, but to all, and especially those who have faithfully looked after our
interests in the country districts, we most heartily extend our thanks for the
time and patience you have taken in our behalf. J. S. Truman of Genoa has
for thirty or more years past furnished this paper with the government
weather report. J. H. Drinnin, Mrs. Stevenson, H. B. Beed and W. D. Benson
have all helped to make the columns interesting by their clean, flpinted and
newsy letters and we earnestly commend you to the new publishers, who
solicit the aid of all in their endeavor to give the public all the newa
In this connection we wish to also thank Mrs. Hattie Boydson who, in the
early years of TnE Journal's existence, contributed many poems to its pages,
and to Mrs. Mary Boird Finch, also a poetess who has all these years occa
sionally brightened the columns with her beautiful verses. Both these ladies
have been highly honored in the field of poetic journalism, and we are proud
to say that their early work was with this publication. A. C. Tyrrell, now in
Asheville, N. C, was one of the faithful friends in former years who will le
remembered by many of our readers.
In reviewing the past, an interesting feature to us has been the very
pleasant associations with our contemporaries. The friendliest feeling has
always existed between ourselves and others in the same work, and in tho
future we will ever look back with tender thoughts to those happy social
office calls.
The following named papers have been launched in this city at different
times since the first issue of The Journal, mentioned in the order of their
starting the publication: Columbus Era, established by W. N. Hensley, and
now the present Telegram property; Republican, F. P. Burgess; Independent,
Em. J. Potts; Gazette, by the Burgess family; Platte Valley Democrat, Went
worth & Son; Wochenblatt, now the Biene, Dr. Schonlau; Sentinel, A. L.
Bixby, now the Argus plant; Columbus Leader, W. M. Hutt; Times, W. B.
Dale; Edict, Walker & Ewing.
To our subscribers and other patrons we wish to express sincere thanks
for substantial encouragement, without which no business can exist. We
have our shortcomings, and you have been kind in overlooking them. We ask
equal forbearance toward our successors, and that not one reader will be lost,
but many gained.
The Turner family will continue to make Columbus their home and retire
from newspaper work to engage in other occupations.
To Wallaces' Farmer an Iowa corres
pondent writes that in looking over his
seed corn he finds that on some ears
where the corn is firm and the cob very
dry and the kernel looks clear the end of
the kernel shows a spot, and be wishes
to know whether kernels of that kind
are good for seed.
The black spot occurs when the tip of
the covering of the germ is removed be
cause of complete maturity. We would
not reject ears of this kind unless we had
a superabundance of seed. If the weath
er conditions should be normal these
grains will grow but if the ground is
cold when the corn is planted and ger
mination is delayed, bacteria may find
entrance and the stalk may be weakened.
In short, these black spots show damage.
Whether we wonld plant these or not
would depend on whether we had suffi
cient seed without them.
Further, he says: "In your issue of
February 19th you say after four days
look at your corn and see how many ker
nels have two sprouts. Do you mean to
say that if I plant some corn and each
kernel shows but one sprout that that
corn will not be safe to plant?"
There is but one germ in each grain of
corn planted, and hence, strictly speak
ing, but one sprout. This sprout, how
ever, turns both up and down, and both
the upward and downward parts of it
should be fully developed. Grains which
show this vigorous development of both
the part of the plant that is intended to
go into the air and the part that goes
into the ground should be preferred
above all others. The more vigorous the
corn, the more clearly will be developed
this two-fold sprouting.
Almost within the limits of the little
city of Louisville, this state, is located
one of the most wonderful and wealth
iest Kaolin banks in the world. Twenty
years ago the product of this bank was
shipped abroad to be used in the manu
facture of high grade chinaware, but
never on an extensive scale, and prac
tically no effort has been made to devel
op tbs'bank. So far as known there is
no other Kaolin bank which will com
pare with it in the United States, except
one in New England, which has proven
a gold mine to .the owner.
"Dan Patch," the famous pacer, has
been secured by the management for an
appearance at the state fair at Lincoln,
August 30. .The cost of the appearance
is said to be double that for Crescens,
which was $L000.
Saturday night after moonrise the
Japanese attempted to block the en
trance to the harbor at Port Arthur.
Four fireships were sent toward the port
conveyed by a torpedo flotilla. Toward
2:15 a. m. the approach of the enemy's
ships was perceived by the guardships
and batteries, which opened on them
heavily. The fireships were preceded by
torpedo boats and followed at a consid
erable distance by larger ships, which
opened fire on the forts, supporting the
action of the fireships and torpedo boats.
Owing to the heaviness of Bussian artil
lery fire and the holding of Bussian tor
pedo boats the fireships did not reach the
entrance. Two of them grounded on a
reef under Golden Hill, another sank
behind the first turn of the channel,
struck by a torpedo from one of the
Bussian boats, and the fourth sank its
bows touohing a Japanese steamer sunk
in the previous attempt off Majatscha
naja Goroda, The entrance to the, har
bor remains dear.
The Nebraska Farmer will open a new
department April 1, called "Nebraska's
Resources and Industries." This depart
ment will embrace all that the title im
plies. Contributions relative to real
estate transactions, land values, immi
gration, organization and development
of local agricultural enterprises, advan
tages for homeseekers and investors,
examples illustrating notable success in
farming, dairying, horticulture, live stock
raising, worthy achievements of success
in any industrial line, are solicited from
all persons interested in presenting Ne
braska's resources and advantages to the
homeeeeking public.
Accordino to the new year book of
the Nebraska State Federation of Wo
men's Clubs a great deal of philanthrop
ic work was done last year. The Syra
cuse club gave $575 to'a library fund.
The club at Albion gave $100 in money
and $25 worth of books to the library.
The Omaha club supports several worthy
charties. There are 119 clubs in the
federation, twenty-two of which were
admitted during the year. The entire
membership is 4257.
The friends of the University of Ne
braska have raised the third of $100,000
which John D. BockefeBer said must be
a condition under which he would give
the other two-thirds for a university
temple. The proposed gift has been
opposed by many Nebraskans, who did
not want to accept Rockefellers money,
and tbe matter trireatened to become a
campaign issue. The temple will be
bailt soon, on the aniversity campus. J
Liacabi Letter.
Warden Beemer has purchased a
thousand yards of gray woolen cloth to
be made up in suits for the "good"
boarders at the penitentiary. The Ne
braska prison will be the only one in the
world 'to operate under the "promotion"
system. The west cell house will not be
ready for many weeks but Warden
Beemer wishes to have his arrangeaents
completed so that when the big, new
clean room is ready for occupants tbe
better behaved convicts can doff the
stripes and leave the gloomy old quarters
for a more airy and cheerful abode.
In an open letter signed by J. L. Teet
ers, tbe regents of the state university
uphold Chancellor Andrews in his deter
mination to accept the Rockefeller dona
tion. One paragraph of the letter is of
great interest and will be received with
satisfaction by all friends of the chan
cellor whether they coincide with his
views or not. This paragraph replies to,
the repeated insinuations cast by an
Omaha paper and based upon the pur
chase of certain Intn adjacent to tbe
university campus.
Last winter the legislature was asked
to appropriate $8,000 for the purchase of
real estate near tbe university, neither
the number nor the description of the
lots being given. Later it was discover
ed that but $5,000 was expended in this
way, and while no direct accusation was
made, the public was led to believe that
the chancellor had received $8,000, ex
pended $5,000 and placed the balance
where he thought it would do the most
It is explained that the $8,000 was
asked for with a view to picking up stray
lots here and there near the campus, that
$5,000 has been so invested and that the
remainder of the appropriation remains
in tbe state treasury and will remain
there until the board sees fit to invest it
in other property.
The regents also explain that the con
stitution of the state, as well as acts of
the legislature leave the board no option
but to receive all donations made to the
institution. Tbe board's interpretation
of the law in this respect is hotly disput
ed by those opposed to accepting the
offer, and the verbal war goes on merrily,
but with the charges of fraud in the real
estate deals happily eliminated.
.March 23, the distributing car of .the
Nebraska fish commission left the hatch
eries at South Bend with a consignment
of 200,000 trout fry to be "planted" in
the small streams tributary to the Nio
brara. The first stop will be made in
Antelope county and the last in Sioux
county, near the Colorado line.
State Veterinarian Thomas has recom
mended a lime and sulphur dip for cattle
infected with lice, mange and other
troubles of that nature and insists that
tbe sanio 6ball be applied the moment
tbe ailment is known to exist in a herd.
The statutes gives tbe veterinarian
authority to prescribe treatment and
fixes a $50 penalty for refusing or neg
lecting to follow his suggestions.
The very strained relations between
the two wings of the Nebraska democ
racy and the fact that Lee Herdman is
the recognized leader of the anti-Bryan
forces have brought on rather a warm
little war between that astute politician
and a number of tbe "regulars" a war
of epithets, charges, counter charges and
absolute falsifications chief, and most
prominent among which, is the absurd
story that a republican supreme court at
the behest of the Hill-Harriman inter
ests, has promised to retain Herdman as
clerk so long as he continues to oppose
Mr. Bryan and stirring up strife within
the ranks of his party. This preposter
ous statement was invented by tbe Bryan
followers and has since been published
with reservation by a few republican
Contempt proceedings might be in
order if such statements were not be
neath the contempt of any court.
Tho republicans of the first district
convened at Lincoln last Tuesday, nom

president, and C. H. Morrill for national
committeeman, chose Judge Barton of
Pawnee City for presidential elector and
W. J. Crandall, Lincoln, and Frank E.
Helvey, Nebraska City, for delegates to
the national convention.
The work of H. C. Lindsay as chair

The contract between the Fremont
Canal & Power company and the J. F.
Kelley Electrical company of New York
for the financing and engineering work
on the proposed power canal has been
extended until April 1. As originally
drawn, the contract expired March 15,
but the Kelley company has been allot
ted two weeks more in which to accom

The last to withdraw from the guber
natorial contest is W. H. Harrison of
Grand Island, leaving a clear field to the
present incumbent, J. H. Mickey, for a
re-nomination. It is well. With a unit
ed party and tbe standard bearers Roose
velt and Mickey there is no reason why
the state of Nebraska should not give a
republican majority of 25,000 or better at
the November election.

Law Breaking in Ctolnjabus.
Sunday evening tbe ministers of the
Presbyterian, Methodist, Congregational
and Baptist churches preached upon the
subject of law breaking in tbe city of
Columbus, and as there was a desire
among many to hear these discourses, we
herewith summarize the sermons. ,Bev.
Halsey said:
"Patriotism should begin at home and
defend tbe home. Environment has
much to do with the making of character.
Tbe home environment does and must
extend beyond the four walls of the
dwelling. AU .parts of our 'home city'
should be such that our boys and girls
may go and come without danger of evil
influence. What parent has not high
aspirations for his offspring? He would
see realized in them the ideals he has
failed to reach. They must have better
opportunities and environment" He
then spoke of the notorious breaking of
law by saloon keepers, venders of tobacco,
dice-throwers, Sabbath desecrators and
others, with impunity. He asked if there
were no public prosecutors sworn to
enforce law? He suggested that right
minded citizens should wait' upon tbe
incoming administration and pledge
themselves to support tbe mayor, coun
cil, police officers and others in tbe strict
enforcement of law.
Bev. Luce used tbe following lino of
thought for his discourse:
"Scripture lesson Ezekiel 22d. Law
breaking one of our most common sins.
Rules of home disregarded; disorderly
conduct in schools follow; city ordinan
ces defied; state laws broken, and nation
al laws violated. 'Uncle Sam' generally
obeyed until recent years, men of wealth
and high position break the laws without
fear of conviction or much humiliation.
See the Northern Securities Merger case.
It is decidedly a flagrant breaking of the
Sherman law; but tbe attorney general
declares that The government does not
mean to run amuck.' We need develop
ment of the spirit of true law-enforcement
till the sentiment of our manhood
Bhall demand and carry out its enforce
ment The spirit of insubordination is
seen on every hand, in home, in school
and country. Strikes are lawlessness;
so are mobs; whether among men and
women or among boys and girls. See
the strike in the York school. Colum
bus is not the worst dty, but that is no
excuse for our allowing lawbreaking.
Officials in this dty or country must
have the public opinion to sustain them.
I call your attention to the laws that are
broken in this city, not all of them, but
some of them: Gambling places; in
stores and shops frequently by dice and
other ways. The spirit of getting some
thing for nothing is abroad; the children
are started in these ways early in little
things, but they grow. Gambling is a
curse to a people whether the operators
are successful winners or losers. The
saloons keep open at unlawful times and
on the Sabbath. I am told there is at
least one that does not open on Sunday.
I do not admire his business, but I do
commend his character as a law abiding
citizen. According to tbe laws of this
state the saloon that complies with tbe
laws is to be protected, and I advise
everybody to see to it that tbe lawB are
kept, whether he be prohibitionist or
saloonist The saloons do not keep the
laws as a rule in many other
respects, namely, tbe having of screens
or something that is effective to that end ;
many of them sell to minors on Sunday."
Rev. Ulmer in his sermon showed "By
reading extracts from the statutes of
Nebraska and the dty ordinances, which
deal with tbe sale of liquors and tobacco,
with gambling, billiards, obscene litera
ture, houses of ill-fame and the desecra
tion of the Sabbath, how tbe laws are
habitually and unrestrainedly broken.
That such lawnessnessmust generate an
immoral and anarchistic atmosphere
which greatly endangers the morality of
the rising generation; and that practi
cally the only thing we can do for tbe
immediate future is by moral suasion to
bring such a pressure to bear on our
official representatives that they will en-
ah lanarsi eattfl nnliiiefiflaa "
