For the lust four months the Nebras
ka Telephone company have been get
ting everything in readiness to install
the central energy system Tor Col urn
bo. In their new offices in the Phillip
Friedhof building the switch boards,
and other appliances are installed, and
there are 23 reels of cable in the yard
and more cable arriving every day, this
being received in car load lots. This
improvement means rebuilding the ex
change and when the work is complet
ed the exchange will all be new equip
ment. In this connection the company
will comply with an ordinance passed
some time ago giving them five years to
put their pcles in the alley, and thsy
will have this done two years before the
time required. Manager Holliday ex
pects to occupy the new offices within
two months, and w hen the transfer is
being made not one of the patrons will
inconvenienced in the least. A special
gang of thirty or forty will come out
from headquarters and rush the work
through in a few days.
The beautiful autumn days are here(
the sere and yellow leaf shows plenti
fully among the foliage that but a few
days since was so fresh and green. Oc
tober with its lovely summery days is
here, and frosty air and weather in the
evenings which set the blood tingling in
the veins. From various parts Colum-
husites arc flocking back to take their
places in their city homes, and to settle
down to their busy lives of Autumn and
winter, they come from the country
where they have luxurated in the open
air all day and perhaps all night long.
They come from mountains, from the
lakes, some return from European and
other foreign lands and all are glad to
get bock home, while all have enjoyed
the summer, ami the outdoor air and the
life of ease, yet all are glad to get back
to their winter life, to enjoy that which
the city has to give them and to take up
their usual avocations. The signs point
to a season of unusual attractivenes.
The new Union Pacific freight depot
will tie a reality in the near future. It
will be located between L and N streets
and will he 40x100 feet and the material
used will be brick. The nnloading plat
form will be 16x370 feet and located on
the last side of the depot. The brick
for the new depot was shipped from
Pueblo about ten days ago and as soon
as it arrives work will begin. The esti
mated cost of the building is in the
neighborhood of $9,000. The old depot
one of the old land marks along the
The Overland will be torn down and
the ground used for trackage. The lo
cation of the depot in the last end of
yards will necessitate considerate rear
rangement of the track in that locality.

Sir; In response to your letter notify
ing me of the action of the republican
convention held in your city on the 17th

date for the legislature from the 25th

that I am profoundly thankful for the
honor thus conferred, and am in hearty
accord with the platform adopted by

elected to the next legislature, I pledge
my best efforts to the enactment of a
stringent anti-pass law; a primary elec
tion law, providing for the nomination
of all state, county and district officers,
including congressmen and United
States senators, by direct vote, and a
state law along the lines of the law en
aeted by the last congress regulating
freight rates and transportation. In
fact, I heartily approve of every plank
in the platform. I too should be proud
of the opportunity to vote for the office
