A Promotion.
Ed. Fitzpatrick, the efficient assis
tant postmaster of this city received a
telegram last Thursday notifying him
of his appointment to a position in
the Postoffice department on the
Panama Canal zone. The telegram
contained no particulars but it is
known that the appointment is a pro
motion which will add materially to
Ed's salary nnd it is believed that the
position is either that of assistant
postmaster, or postal clerk. Last
Saturday Ed. received a second tele
gram asking him to report at New
York for further instruction and in
response thereto, Ed. left Tuesday
morning.
Ed. Fitzpatrick has been six years
in the Columbus postoffice where he
has done proficient service and has
mnsterted the details of hi6 work so
as to give him excellent preparation
for the promotion.
Ed will be missed in Colnmbns
social circles, where he has always
been a prominent figure.

District Court.
The court house is crowded today by
spectators eager to hear every word of
the testimony in the sensational kidnap
ping case in which Fred A. Brnenhaber
went to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Wiseman last Saturday afternoon and
forcibly took away his three year old
daughter Lula Marie.
It was an interesting but pathetic
spectacle to eee Mrs. Wiseman on the
witness stand with the sweet little girl
not her own, clinging to her neck and
refusing to recognize the real mother
and father sitting near, to whom the
child has been a etrantrer from infancy,
but whose parental instincts have led
tliem to seek by force, the child of their
blood after three years of separation.
The story as briefly told by witnesses is
is follows:
Three years ago Bruenhaber whs night
-ugineer at the city waterworks here
and lived with his wife and four children
the youngest a babe at its mother's
breast. Estranged from his wife he left
her and the children without means of
support and Mrs. Bruenhaber took the
babe to Mrs. Wiseman, her husband's
a'ster. The conditions upon which the
child was given up are in dispute, but at
any rate the mother seldom saw the lit
tle girl who has come to look upon Mr.
and Mrs. Wiseman as father and mother.
Finally Fred Bruenhaber wrote from
Denver for his wife and family and they
went to him. Recently they returned
to Columbus and Mr. Bruenhaber went
to his sister's home for his baby, and be
ing refused, the testimony is that he
choked Mrs. Wiseman and took the
child by force. Taking a team and bug
gy he drove to David City with the child
where he was apprhended by Sheriff Car
rig Saturday night and brought into
district court to answer the charge of
kidnapping. The testimony of the de
fense is not in as the Journal goes to
press.
Since last Saturday the court has dis
posed of the case of Oscar Nelson against
Strand, the slander case from the Look
ing Glass in which the defendant is said
to have accused the plaintiff of stealing
a whip, the verdict being for the defend
ant. In the case of Dr. J. C- McKinley
against Gustav Teske for a doctor's bill
the jury found for the defendant.
A case has been filed in district court
from Burrows township, Olsofka vs Ols-
- of ka, the wife seeking, to njoin the bos-
band from selling real estate and other
property.

part of the skull was removed The boy
is doing finely.
The engine pulling the Albion branch
train jumped the track at St. Edward

resulted. A number of Columbus citi

detained for several hours, their wives
however were greatly pleased when they

The Spalding passenger instead of ar

Saturday evening Earl and George,
the two yoangest children of H. E
tiabcock, were playing at the resi
dence of A Anderson with the two
little Anderson boys, when they got
some rat biscuits that the maid had
carelessly thrown in the coal hod. As
there were only three, not enough to
go around, George Babcock got none,
but all of the other children became
sick. With the Anderson children the
poison acted as an emetic and pro
bably saved their lives, bat little Barl
Babcock was very Hick, and all Satur
day night his life was despaired of.
By Sunday night, however, the physi
cians in attendance pronounced him
out of danger, bnt (till very sick and

East Lynne.
Iu the presentation of the Lewis'
East Lynne at the North Opera house
Monday evening of this week, some
thing out of the usual was seen, be
cause of the local interest attached to
the companv, and a pleasing prefor
niance was witnessed of an old yet
greatly admired play.
As a whole, from the rise of the
curtain, to its final fall the plav was
smooth, even and harmonious in all
details, stage settings, the cast of
characters, and the individual imper
sonation of them. Seldom, if ever,
has a handsomer dressing of the itige
been seen in Columbus.
Of course the chief both in the plav
and as a drawing card, was Miss
Kathryn Dale, the handsome and
talented daughter of Mrs. J. E. North.
In tbe difficult dual roles of Lady
Isabel and Madam Vine. Miss Dale,
throughout, displayed a charm and
power, in all the light and serious
shades which make up the sad love
and life story of tbe leading character
in East Lynne. She is an ideal Lady
Isabel, swaying the audience with
the varied passions which are stirred
in the breast of the jealous wife and
deceived and deserted woman of the
world, now bringing tears and anon
winning sympathy from all. It is
safe to say that Kathryn Dale's
Lady Isabel will be long and favor
ably remembered.
J'he balance of tbe cast was nnnsally
even and harmonion. each appearing
to the best advantage. Mr. Darcy as
Sir Francis Levis in made a handsome
appearance, and gave a genteel and
trne impersonation of the second part
in tbe play. Ivlr. Lewis' Dill and
Miss Lewis' Corney Carlyle, were
managed in a skillful manner repeat
ing on them great credit. Master
Jack Lemon made his appearance first
as a sweet little girl and afterward as
Lady Isabel's son Willie, capturing
the andience with tbe cutness and
ea?) of his sytle and manner. And
last but not least in either their im
portance in the plav or the. abilitv
with which they rendered their re
spective parts, were Miss Phoza Mc
Allister. O. B Nair and Ward
Osborne. Miss McAllister as Barbrn
Hate was as sweet and capible as the
pretty conntrv girl may be mad p.
This young lady riisplav an ease and
grace of appearance that border a sue
cesful career for her in the dramatic
world. Mr. Nair's Archibald Carlyle
was a neat and acceptable impersona
tion of that character, while Ward
Osborne appeared to better advantage
as Lord Monnt Servern, than any
thing in which he has neretofre been
seen. All in all, tbe East Lvnne en
eagmenfc'was a verv sgecessful oaa.
The company went west from here.
'Marriage license was granted last
