sider good authority that it was not
the village board that instituted pro
ceedings to recover the band uniforms.
The mistake was caused by the fact
that many of the old band members
are also village trustees, and it was
the general impression that it was the
general impression that it was the
trustees who were doing the business ;
but it now appears that they acted as
members of the old band and not as
village trustees. Innocent members
of the board of trustees have suggested
to the Opinion that the board has
troubles enough of its own without
being blamed for everything, and
in this the Opinion agrees and hastens
to make amends. Lindsay Opinion.
There has been unusual activity in
the millinery business in Colnmbns
during the past ten da vs. Never in
the history of the city has there been
so expensive and up-to-date a line of
ladies hats. Indeed the displays at
the various millinery stores at their
openings during the past two weeks
would have done cretid to the stores
in the larger cities and as a result a
large number of buyers from the
branch towns were in evidence. At
Gray's Fillman's and Jay's stores
where the openings were held two
weeks ago the stocks were larger and
the tiade was greater than usual. All
who visited these three opening speak
in terms of praise of the excellent
styles displayed.

Otto Weber Suicides.
Without a word of warning to his

Weber had ended his life with a 32 cali
bre Smith & Wessen revolver, the bullet
entering the right temple, causing in

anyone, but soon after the tragedy J. C.
Dineeti entered the station on business
and found the prostrate body on the
floor, die weapon still clutched in his
right hand and blood oozing from the
f.ital wound.
Sheriff Carrig and Coroner Melz were
summoned and at 3 o'clock p. ra. the
coroner's jtirv said by their verdict that
Ono Weber came to his death by his
own hnnd.
Upon his person two letters from grain
commission houses were found, one con
taining a remittance for $51 and the
other confirming a trade nujde, on the.
exchange. Later a short letter was
found in the safe in which the deceased
bade farewell to his wife and four child
ren and admonished his two boys never
to touch a card for money nor play on
the board of trade.
It t-eems that deceased had some finan

the company was square, as asserted by
the traveling auditors of both the raii

City Council.
The city government changed hands
last Friday night, Mnycr Dicktnson
and conncilmen Gray and Dietrichs
retiring to be replaced respectively
by Mayor G. W. Phillips and council
men M. Rothleitner and J H. Johan
nes. All other elective officers Gus B
Speice treasurer. R. L. Rossiter, city
engineer, William Becker oity clerk,
William O'Brien, police judge, and
W. A. "Clark, councilman second ward
succeed themselves.
As the Journal stated before elec
tion, the candidates of both parties
were among their best men and the
platforms of the two parties were
pratically identical. Hence the citi
zens of Columbus have a right o ex
pect a continuation in all essential
features of the same policies which
have cbaractrized the administration
of Mayor Dickinson and his associates.
That the recent election has left no,
breaks in the way of general policy
and no bitterness on part of the de
feated candidates was indicated in the
brief speeches made by the retiring
officers and the officers-elect. IT
After the old council had dispatch
ed a small budget of unfinished busi
ness, Mayor Dickinson arose and in a
few words thanked his associates for
their loyal co-operation in the past:
expressed the gratification which
every mayor feels npon being per
mitted to retire to private life; and
expressed his Keen pleasure to be able
to turn over the city to so competent
an executive officer and bo good a
citizen as his friend G. W. Phillips.
G. W. Phillips then took the may
or's seat at the head of the conncil
table. He spoke very briefly, asking
the co-ouaration of his associate offi
cers in giving the city of Colnmbns
the very best government, possible,
and closing with the statement that, he
would be satisfied if at the end of his
term he could retire possessing as
large a measure of the confidence of
the best citizens of Columbus as his
predecessor had enjoyed.
Councilman Gray gave a warm hand
to his successor Mr. Rothleitner upon
yelding his seat and Conncilmen Die
trich, retiring, and Johanunes elect,
both made shore speeches.
The only evidence of partisian po
litics which marked the meeting was
the naming of the democratic party
organ as the official paper of the city.
Goncilmau Gall y", ok rTsnal 'took-a
staud against the spoils system in the
city government iu the matter of nam
ing the official paper, but his motion
to place both of the city newspapers
on the same footing did aot receive a
second, even councilmau Clark after
standing against the "spoils" theory
for two years, going back to his old
love. The other members were con
sistent. They stood, as the democra
tic party in this city has always-stood,
for the spoils theory. The voters who
elected them knew where they stood,
and if a majority of the people want
that system they should have it. No
one should criticise the action of any
councilman for naming the Telegram
the official paper. No criticism
should be made bad the Telegram been
named at a full legal rate instead of
50 per cent of that rate. When an
officer is elected by a majority on a
spoils platform, he should be credited
for being consistent and should not be
criticised so long as he acts within
the law Those who oppose the spoils
theory in this city have the power to
defeat it at the polls although they
havo no right to assume that those
who believe in that theory are not
jest as honest as they The citv print
ing, therefore should be a closed inci
dent after election.
Among the important items of busi
ness transacted was a transfer of $2000
upon resolution of Councilman Gray,
from the Water Works Improvement
Fund back to the Bond Fund from
which it was borrowed four years ago
to make needed improvements in the
water works.
One act of the new council was im
portant, not in itself, but because of
its probable consequences. That was
the placing of an arc light on the cor
ner between Niewohner's and the
park. The old council had made a
plan for lighting the city including
as many lights as it was felt the
city could afford. In working out
this plan, one arc light was located
every two blocks in the business sec
tion and other lights were fixed with
certain regularity throughout the city.
The deviation from this plan is likely
to open the way for a demand for
lights everywhere, for indeed there
are many places where lights are need
ed but whicn the city cannot afford.
A good sized budget of bills was
allowed by the new council and the
usual list of active members of the fire
companies were filed with the city
clerk as a guide to the poilce judge in
naming jurymen.
Mayor Phillips will make his ap
P3intments at the next regular meet

A hold up in which two gypsy wo

the Loup bridge last Monday morn

when a little girl approached him
from the gypsy camp and asked him
the time of day. Wnile he was look

have much whereupon she demanded
what he had. something about tne

moment and he delivered over ten
dollars. Then he told them he was
an agent of Uncle Sam ana that they
would get in tronblo. They wrapped
up five dollars of the money in a pa

He drove on and did not report the
matter till night, when Ed. Rossiter
went with Hahn to look for them.
The women were caught near Mon
roe. .They returned the money and
no arrests were made.
The same pair of gypsy women who
held up Fred Hahn, the mail carrier,
south of the river, tried their graft in
several other places. One case is re
ported where a man called at their
camp to have his fortune told. He
was taken apart from his companions
tor tne purpose, suadeiuy tlie wo
man raised a cry and accused him of
attempting tu do her violenoe, and
then tried to black mail him. On the
same day a travelling man at the
Meridian h tel had an experience witn
the same woman. He had paid her a
quarter to tell his fortune. She
wanted more money. He took some
money out of his pookot. Suddenly
she seized his hand and pretended to
faint, snatching his watch, and trying
to rifle his pockets at the same time.

the Only Cany af the Story Extant
(From week to week the Journal
wiil publish from a book written by
I. N. Taylor, deceased which was
publieed iu 1876.
During this year, I860, the line of
ranch men that filed out on the mili
tary road was much extended. Some
persons who did a thriving business
beyond our poanty limits afterward
returned eastward and are still with
as. Among them is Joseph A. Baker.
Now came a long, deep, lull in the
noise of immigration s There was no
motive for any more to settle down
on the valleys, for there was no liv
ing at ail except on the surging tide
of emigration and through travel to
and from Colorado, Utah and Cali
fornia. This gave a chance for life
to a limited number, and that num
ber was now fulL AU snared it jlo
some extent. Except only in colum
ous where Mrs. Bakers hotei nearly
monopolized the business, every house
was a rancae, every floor a lodging,
every table a cake and pie stand.
Moreover, there, were hindering
causes abroad. The war of the Be
oellion was on the hands of the na
tion. The frightful Minnesota mas
bacre had transpired and the mur
derers nail gone west probably to new
helas of rapine. From all uauseB
combined tne iountains of actual
growth were sealed up and Platte
county stood still. We have no au
thentic census of those years, but
George W. Stevens was around here
and tne enumeration of school youth
was regularly tasen twice a year. It
shows a sliding scale, though slowly
rising iu general. Two hundred ana

rapid increase for an alinodt purely in
luud agricultural district. This wan
in taut tne actual increase of school
youcn iu Platte county in tne years
iroiu lbtiti to 1S7G.
it is remarkable that even so power
ful an incentive as the free home
btead law, which took effect January
1, ldGH. gave ao slight an lmpulne to
uur immigration. But the true rea
sons have been given. Not until the
rebellion had collapsed aud the fear
of a general Indian war had subsided
uud Nebraska had become connected
by rail with the east aud south, and
not until the Platte valley was made
to tremble beneath the rattling wheels
of the Union Pacific Iron Horse, did
the homestead law have any meaning
to persons at a distance. But hence
forth free homesteads, pre-emptions
and even railroad lands at to per acre
vere as the hot cages of the griddle
on a winter morning, and now scarce
ly a homestead is left unclaimed in
Platte county. In the month of May,
ISGG, the construction trains of the
Casement Bros., entered our eastern
borders, and en the first day of June
the track was laid through the town
of Columbus. The whole city men,
women, and children went out to
witness the wonderful spectacle of a
liveengine slowly creeping along as
the rails were laid, a pair at a time,
by a gang of disciplined workmen, all
moving with the harmony of a dock,
aud completing the track laying at
the rate of ten feet per minnte. This
event was to Columbus and Platte
county the beginning of a new life,
and we are therefore today juss ten I
years, one month and fonr days old.
To trace the rapid steps of our pro
gress in all the paths of phisical,
social, political and moral develop
ment, with names, dates and events
in details, manifestly impracticable
iu this brief paper. It must suffice to
say that in the settlement of our coun
try "The birds of a feather have
flocked together." There are some
exceptions; it wonld be better per
haps, if there were more; but as a
rule, we see on swinging around the
circle from southeast to southwest,
that the sons of Johnny Bnll wheth
er southwest, whether English or
Scotch have the lower Platte valley,
and the Mormons lead. The Germans
possees the lower SheU Greek valley
with all its tributaries and are mostly
Lutherans. The northeast and Tracv
valley are Yankees and are largely
Presbyterians. The Imb, have got
the upper Shell Creek valley, and the
lower north shore of tne Loup and are
Catholics. The Scandinavians possess
the Upper Looking Glass and Lost
Creek and are mohtlv Lutherans. The
Indian policy of President Grant has
resulted in giving ' us in the upper
north shore Loup valley a planting of
