At least one home industry in Co
lumbus has received encouragement.
A few weeks ago W. H. Town an in
dustrious yoong cigar maker started
a cigar factory, a few doors from the
Journal office. Ho started in with
one assistant thinking he would rnn
on a small scale. He made two new
cigars ant1 named them "Lumo" and
"Golden Kagle". Scarcely had the
first lioxes been opaned in the C olum
bns cigar stores when the orders came
so fast Mr. Town had to add another
ma to his force. Another week
passed and still another man was add
ed. Agaiu Mr. Town is behind with
his orders and he will be compelled
to increase his force again to enter
tain the friends which "Lumo" and
"Golden Eaarle" are bridging to the
new ciga- factory All the merchant
of Columbus have an opportunity to
help this growing infant industry.

The Jew Post Office Site.
Where will the new postoflice site
be located? How much land will it
include? To what extent will local
influences determine the location?
When will the site be purchased?
These are the questions that are on
the tongues of Columbus citizens and
the Journal can answer them all with
First of all the site will be selected
by sealed bids on August 7, l!K4i at 2
p. m. In another column may be
seen the advertisement for bids.
The manner of selecting the site is
told in detail in a letter from Leslie
M. Shaw, secretary of the treasury
and that letter is published below to
tell its own story :
Whenever an act of congress author
izes the acquisition of a site for a pro
posed building whether by purchase
or gift, the treasury department in
vites, through an advertisement in
serted in a local newspaper, bids for
the sale, or. propositions of donation,
and directs that the same be submit
ted to the secretary of the treasury at
Washington. This advertisement
gives much information aB to the ap
proximate dimensions of the site re
quired and the general conditions and
requirements as will enable intelli
gent preparation and submission of
bids or offers. The bids and offers
obtained in this way are opened at
the treasury department in Washing
ton at the time stated in the adver
tisement and as soon there after as
practicable an agent of the depart
ment is sent to matce a personal ex
amination of the properties offered,
and upon this report, together with
representations in writing from other
sources, the department makes selec
tion, conditioned, navertheless, that
the title to the property be approved
by the Attorney-General. When the
land is thus acquired on which build
ings are siituated which are reserved
by the party selling, notice to remove
the same is given after the. land has
been actually acquired and title ap
proved. Whenever the department is
unable to obtain an acceptable site at
a reasonable price in the manner
above outlined, it frequently makes
selection an authorizes the department
of justice to begin and prosecute con
deminaton proceedings in which the
pirce to be paid is judicially deter
mined As soon as practicable after the ac
quistion of the site ; plans for the pro
posed buildng are prepared and a con
tract let for the construction thereof.
L. M. Shaw.
There are many and diverse opin
ions as to where the site should be
located. The advertisement for bills
however, settles this question in a
general way. Tne site must be as
"central" as possble. That is, as
near the center of population. The
government has no axes to grind with
certain favored individuals or prop
erty owners. Economy and conven-
ene demand tnat the government's
business office must be as near as pos
sible to the center of the population
hich it has to serve. This principle
is right and should govern the local
sentiment as well as the action of the
authorities at Washington.
Of course every lot owner in Co
lumbus would like to have the new
building on or near his lot but wire
pulling will not suffice to locate the
building on any lot that is not cen
tral. Guesses are numerous as to which
will be the lucky "corner lot 120 by
130 feet." Some guesess locate it
north of the park while many others
locate it on the Hughes' lot north of
Pollock a store.
The time is short for submitting
bids and Mr. Hughes who owns one
of the favored locations is absent in
Wherever the selection may fall,
the mass of citizens of Golnmbus will
have confidence in the judgment of
the government agent who will be
sent here to make the selection and
they will be happy to recall the liber
al site appropriation which Congress
man McCarthy has secured for Co
Iambus, and proud to point to the
spot on which will be erected in a
few months the finest building iu
Columbus and centtal Nebraska.
The most popular as well as the
moat beautiful spot in Columbus these
hot dayB is Frankfort Park. The in
troduction of several swings last week
has made the park the center of at
traction to all the children and many
of the grown-ups. The trimming of
the trees has added much to the at
tractiveaeas of the place and now the
band stand is being converted into an
ornament by the application of sever
al coats of paint.

Great Music at Omaha.
There have been many very fine band
concert se;isons in Omaha, during the
past ten yeais, including the famous
bands o: the Trans-MitiBippi year, bnt
but for novelty, variety and all round
popularity, the comcrt season at the
Auditorium this year promism toeeiipse
them all. Manager Giilan of the Audi
torium, ha- engaged the famous Royal
Hawaiian Band of Honolulu for one
week, beginning July 23 and closing
Saturday night, .Inly 28. This great
band is unlike any other musical organ
ization in the world, for the reason that
it consists not merely of a military baud,
but includes also a stringed orchestra,
banjo, mandolin and guitar clubs a
choir and several superb solo singers.
This bond is supported by the Ha
waiian government and by the consent
of that government is making its first
tour of the United States.
These musicians have been drilled
and educated by Captain Berger, for
merly an officer and band master in the
Prussian army. Captain Berger has
made bis home in Honolulu for over
thirty years and has developed the na
tive musical ability of these Uawaiians
to a wonderful degree of perfection.
Their music is soft and soothing, yet
full of catchyness and .fire. They sing
in their own language their inimitable
"Hula Songs" with a cleverness quite
surprising, they also sing and play the
most popular English and American
The prices will be reasonable. Re
served Beats will be 35 50 and 75 cents,
and general admission will be 25 cents.
At all matinees the admission will be
25 cents for any seat in the house, ex
cept the lioxes. Book tickets will also
be sold, by which the purchasers may
get the reserved seats for three or four
dollars, depending on the location.
These book tickets ore transferable and
will admit bearer to any concert of the

Condon and Walker opened their
new stoie in the Phillips building last
week and though they have been dis
appointed in not receiving all their
goods, they say they have not been
disappointed in the reception which
the people of Columbus have given to
their new enterprise.
Mrs. Sarah Brindley this week con
cluded her work as model school in
structor, and tomorrow morning will
return ro her home in Columbus.
During her brief stay here, as was the
case three ysars ago during the first
junior normal school session, she has
endeared hershelf to the teachers work
ing under her charge as well as to
the other acquaintances made. The
twenty children who compose the
model school have greatly enjoyed
their work, and besides, have been
much profited by their instruction.
About twenty-five of the boys of Com
pany K bad the time of their lives last
Sunday at the home of Jim Haney
seven miles from Columbus. The boys
marched from their ball in uniform
carrying their full equipment. At the
Haney farm they indulged in indoor
target practice with 22 calibre rifle and
made some remarkable scores. Captain
Wagner and Durward Davies tied for
the high .core, each getting 45 out of a
possible 50 points. Besides the target
practice, the boys did some successful
stunts with the book and line. They
had all manner of good things to eat
and drink and are loud in their praise
of their host.

In Real Estate Matters
at this time may prove of interest. Nev
er before has realty touched the price it
is now hovering around; never before
has so many choice pieces been looking
for buyers with a little ready cash, and
never before has the buyer with a little
ready cash had so many choice bits of
Mother Earth to select from for his buy
ing. On ths other hand, looking forward
instead of backward, every indication

Parker's White City.
Parker's White City on Wheels, the
amusement company which opened in
Columbus last Monday for a week's per
formance is beyond comparison the best
thing of the kind ever seen in this city.
The Journal has always been conserva
tive in giving sanction to performances
of this kind, but we wish to nrge the
many Journal readers residing in the
neighboring towns that it will be worth
their while to see this attraction. It is
not in the same class with previous at
tractions of this kind. The management
is clean and straightforward and de
serves credit for raising the standards of
excellence and morality of outdoor at
tractions. Thugs and grafters have no place with
this organization, and there is not a per
formance that a man may r.ot take his
wife and children to see with the great
est assurance. "Bagdad presents n
high-class musical production, worth
75 cents to see anywhere. The sing
ing, dancing and specialties which
are introduced during the intervals
are first class and the orchestra excel
lent. The annex features of Parker's
White City in their line reach the
same degree of excellence The free
band concerts, the free exhibitions of
the elephant walking the wire and
tne mid -air performances of Heir
Granada and Fran Fedora are in
themselves worth travelling several
miles to see. As a clean, reputable,
high-class out-door amusement com
pany, the Journal wishes to commend
Parker's White City to all its country
and out-of-town readers as well as to
its city readers. You will be glad if
yon come to see it.
The Annexes furnish clean and en
tertaining amusement besides valu
Among the attractive Annexes of
Parker's White Oity may be mention
ed Hale's Tours of the World, the
Eruption of Vesuvius, San Fancisco
in Flames, the Novelty Theater,
Creation and the Parker Oarrv-us-all.
Hale's Tours furnish the very latest
amusement device in the domain of
outdoor attraction. The visitor is
interested by seeing the fronts of two
palatial pullman cars, on the plat
forms of which uniformed conductors
and porters Btand, announcing that
the train is about to leave on a trip
from the Rockies to New York, down
Broadway and arooss the famous
Brooklyn bridge. And maybe, the
day on which yon attend will find the
cars making a trip through the charm
ing spots of Ireland and England;
northern France and the Alps of
Switzerland, ncross the steppes of Rus
sia or over the burning plains of Egypt.
Vesuvius is a mechanical and electri
cal representation in miniature of the
awful Eruption so fresh in the minds of
all. San Francisco burning is depicted
by actual photographs taken on the
spot, while fire was in progress and a
realistic panoramic view of the city as
it was after the earthquake and confla
gration. The Novelty Theatre keeps
the audience in langhtcr and close in
terest all through the performance
The Antics of the Rarebit Fiend alone
is enough to chase away the worst form
of the "blues" and the kidnapping story

Womans Home Missionary Society.
The North American Meeting of the
Conference Woman's Home Missionary
society of The North Nebraska Con
ference and The Third Annual Meet
ing of tne Gran-i Meeting of 'the
lirand Island District Association met
in joint convention in the Methodist
Episcopal church at Columbus, Neb.,
July ti-t), inclusive. The meeting was
well attended and everything passed
off as pleasantly and serenely as most
conventions of its natnre and charac
ter do. The ColumbuB people "made
good" their reputation for hospitalty
and interest in good endeavor and
wholesome uplift for individuals,
community and national righteous
ness. The pogram was ideal; full of
information, plans and methods for
pushing the Home Mission Cause
speedily forward. The meeting was
particularly remarkable because of the
interest and enthnsiasiiu awakened in
this special line of Christian activity.
The success of the meeting was uue
to Mrs. H. Hirst Millard and Rev
DeWolf because of their various en
deavors which need not be enumerat
ed here for the entertainment of dele
gates, program, special privileges,
etc. The retirement of Mrs. Millard
oecauoe of poor health, after eighteen
years unceasing stndy and wora for
the Home Mission society in Nebras
ka was deeply regretted by all those
sincerely interested in the Oause of
OhriBt. Hopes were expresed ou
every hand that after two years of
complete rest, Mrs. Millard shall
again be permitted to enter the ranks
and help carry on the fight against
ignorance superstition, immoralty,
infidelity and everything antagonistic
to Christian citizenship.
The conference us a body presented
to Mrs. J. B. Leedom of Wood River,
who for several years has been the
efficient conference president, a Life
Membership Certificate in the Wo
mans' Home Mission society. (The
certificate cost twenty dollars). Mrs.
J. B Jeedoin has grown grey in this
service for the Master and her devo
tion to the Home Mission Field of
work has been recognized often by
similar gifts, expressions of love, es
teem, reverence fer her saintly wo
manhood. Mrs. Frank Hammond of
Fremont made the presentation
speech which she did most fittingly
Mrs. Bass, a national organizer
from New York was the central figure
on theprogram giving with her wonder
ful oratory five masterful addresses, full
of logic, eloquence, persuasive argu
ment, earnest pleas, exact data on to
pics and lines of research inoluded in
the Home Mission Field of study and
activity. Mrs. Bass is a wonderful
woman fired with the Divine purpose
to give time, talent, voice and money
for the spread of the Womans Home
Missionary society work.
The papers and addresses by the
North Nebraska Conference member
ship W3re wAl prepared and a credit
to Nebraska womanhood and the cause
presented. The committee on resolu
tions acknowledged all these good
things and a repetition need not be
made. The Ninth Annual Meeting of
