Domestic trouble which involves two
of the oldest and most prominent fami
lies of Colnmbus,culminatedFridaynii;ht
in a street fight between Bont Speiceand
Max Elias. The causes of the trouble
have been greatly exaggerated by street
gossip, and it was a combination of
chance with a few slight but unfortunate
circumstances, that made public a mat
ter that should never hare passed out
side the walls of home.
The fight occurred in front of the
Home Ilestaurant about six o'clock
and opinions differ somewhat as to
who started it. According to the best
information available, Elias stopped in
front of the restaurant where Speice was,
to tell him that his wife was ill and
needed him at home. A dispute arose
and most of the eye-witnesses agree that
Speice slapped Elias in the face, where
upon Elias knocked Speice down across
the seat in front of the Home Restaurant
and then knocked him to the pavement.
One of the first blows took effect behind
Speice' s ear, dazing him so that he stag
gered when he arose and was unable to
make his blows effective.
Mark Burke and others interfered as
soon as they could and separated the
pair. Bont Speice was taken by Gus
Speice to the home of the latter, where
his wounds were treated and Max
Elias is nursing two badly bruised
hands and a dislocated thumb as a result
of his blows on Speice's head.
Both parties have prominent connec
tions in Columbus who, of course, are in
no way involved in this unpleasant affair.
But Max Elias has the approval of
those who believe that the spirit of
chivalry that prompted the knights of
old to do battle for the weak and de
fenseless, should throb in the hearts of
men of this age and inspire like actions.
Dr. H. A. Hansen, who is sole
owner of the townsito Searchlight,
Nevada, received a telegram Friday
morning, announcing that water had
been struck at the depth of 230 feet.
Heretofore the 800 inhabitants of the
town have been compelled to have
water across the desert at a cost of
$1.50 a barrel. The town is located on
a solid granite base extending down
ward hnndrede of feet, and no one.
until Dr. Hansen took the matter
in hand, has had the nerve to go np
against the proposition of all through
solid granite a cost of $15 a foot, with
no idea of the depth at which water
would be reached. Dr. Hansen says
the well has1 cost him about $5000.
Dr. Hansen has never invested in
mining property, but the Quartette
one or the largest gold mines in the
United States adjoins his townsite at
Searchlight. It is owned by a Boston
syndicate and hap. "jronga ore in sight
to keep it running Bight and day for
fifty vears. The doctor says that stock
in this comiiany which was offered
him three years ago at ten cents a
share now selling at seventeen dollars
a share. The proximity of this mine
to Searchlight taken in connection
with the recent strike of water, will
make Dr. Hansons property more
valuable to him than a gold mine.
The council meet Friday night was
largely devoted to sidewalk matters.
The council directed that property
owners who had failed to repair de
fective sidewalks be ordered to re
move the old walks ana put down
No action was taken in the matter of
a lighting plant. The application of
E. B. Pickhardt for a franchise to
construct and operate a gas plant is
under consideration. Mr. Pickhardt
declares himself willing to furnish
85 -candle power gas lights for the
streets at actual cost, which he puts
at $7.00 per year each. For private
uso he fixes a price of $1.25 to $1.50
per thousand cnbio feet. The coun
cilman express themselves as being
inclined to consider the matter very
deliberatelv before taking action. In
the words of Councilman J. H. Galley,
they consider that when they grant
a franchise for a lighting plant they
are giving a very valuable privilege
and the city should be compensated by
au assurance of reasonable rates to
the city and the citizens.
Many people are not aware that Ne
braska has a school law requiring
every pupil of school age to attend
consecutively two thirds of each school
term, beginning the first day of the
Supt. Leavy says that in Platte county
there is little difficulty in enforcing
the law. since a very large majority
of the people believe in education and
send their children either to the pub
lic or the parochial schools. He says,
however, that there are some cases
of non-compliance with the law, and
that it is the duty of the school di
rectors as truant officers, to report
those cases to him. The law is a good
one, and public sentiment should en

The Norris and Rowe circrs drew a
large crowd to Columbus Monday. The
street parade this forenoon was wit
nessed by thousands of people and was
very creditable. The show is about a
third larger than it was when it was
here last year and appears to be free
from most of the objectionable fea
tures of the average show of the kind.
The Columbus schools were dismis
sed in the afternoon to permit the
children to attend. Large crowds are
coming in to see the night exhibition.

There seems to be a demand for a
lecture course this year as before,
since in that way a good grade of tal
ent is secured at a minim nm price.
For this reason the members of the
senior grade have made arrangements
for a lecture course consisting of five
memoes. The officers elected are
Roy Stires, president; Lillian Adams,
secretary ; and Mamie Elliot, treasuer.
The price for season tickets will-, be
one dollar for adnlts and seventy-five
cents for school children. The lecture
course of previous years has not been
a financial success, bnt, through the
patronage of the pnblic, it is hoped
that it will be this year.
The dry goods stock of Louis Sch
wartz on thirteenth street was sold
Wednesday night to Homer Robinson.
The invoice is in progress and will be
completed, probably, Saturday night.
Mr. Robinson will continue the busi

dent of Columbus since 1874 and has
been engaged successfully in the dry
goods business at his present location
for fonr years. He sold out through
a desire to retire from active business.
Mr. Robinson who is known through
out central Nebraska as a successful
traveling, dry goods salesman, is mas

and besides, he possesses that magic
touch which makes things "go."

The suit of Mrs. Lillie Edmonason,
administratrix of the estate of Cam
eron Edruondson, deceased, againBt the
Union Pacific railroad, filed in the
district court of Merrick county last
March, has been transferred to the
district court of Platte county for
trial. Joseph W. Herod, foreman of the
Union Pacific round house, is joined
with the railroad comiiany as co-defendant.
This suit grows out of circumstances
with which Columbus people are fa
miliar. In October 1903, Cameron
Edmondson, the plaintiff's husband
brakesman on the Spalding branch,
was run over by the train at Spalding
and killed. The plaintiff alleges that
he was thrown from the top of a car,
while switching, because the air
brakes failed to work properly in
stopping the moving cars, and that
the defendants are guilty of negligence
in sending ont a faulty engine. She
asks for $5,000 damages.
The defendants tried to have the
case removed to the United States
court, on technical grounds, but it
was remanded to the district court.

The Republican state central com
mittee, co-operating with the Platte
county central committee and the
Roosevelt Club, have made arrange
ments for one of the largest an.l most
important political meetings ever held
in Columbus, for the evening of Sep
The principal speaker of the even
ing will be the Hon. Joseph G.Cannon,
who as speaker of the national house
of Representatives during the past
four years, has made a record that
entitles him to a place in the front
rank of statesmen and orators of this
age. Mr .Cannon's oratory is of that
"rongh and ready" stylo that made
Abraham Lincoln the idol of the com
mon eopIe and that has made Mr.
Canon famous the world over under
the title of "Uncle Joe".

other living man in American politics
has so striking a personality as that
of " Undo Joo" and that he has no
peer on the stump. Whorevor he goes

to Roosevelt. As a leading character
in the world's political field he will
attract democrats and republicans

attraction that will be worth coming
miles for. The Hon. Jas. E. Watson,
congressman of Indiana one of the
most polished orators in the United
States will speak.

candidates will be there to give an
accounting of themselves. Congress
man McCarthy has made a record in
congress for alertness for the interest
of his constituency and that has
won many friends for him among the
democrats and they will all want to
hear him at tbo Cannon rally. The
Republican administration in Ne
braska for the past two years has made
a proud record for itself in the en
actment of tho Ramsey bill in the in
terest of farmers' elevators, in the
enactment of a revenue law that saves
money to the individual taxpayer
who is honest, by forcing delinquents
to pay up and by raising the valua

made a record for economy of which
