There in a new deal in affairs in Ne
btaska and the people are fighting for
lower railroad rates. - So many things
are happening of real interest to every
citizen that a daily newspaper is now a
necessity. The biggest btrgain that has
come to our notice is The Daily State
Jourua! without Sunday from now nntil
January 1, 1907, for only 50 ceutB. This
is such a small price that it can only be
made to introduce the paper into new
homes. The publishers claim that this
is not a scheme to get you on their
books and then keep on sending, hut
that the paper will be stopped on Janu-
ary 1, 1907. It would be hard to find a
better wsj" of investing 60 cents.
One of the first permanent bnildings
to be erected in the old Chinatown dis
trict is now well under way.' It is a
"Class C" with pressed brick exterior,
'and will comprise, four stores and about
50 rooms for a lodging house. The
picturesque old hillside with its squalid
'tenements have been purged by fire, but
the placid Celestials will gather on tho
old site, in more conventional houses,
and set up agaiu their jo-s-houses and
pat out their cabalistic red paper and
their crimson lanterns. There will
always be an Oriental city in the heart
o' San Francisco.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Dack and son
Bruce, returned last Saturday evening
from a ten days' visit with relatives at

of Mrs. Dack. lie made the trip down
in his Cadillac automobile, which he
sold in Omaha, and purchased a new
twenty-two horse power Buick machine,
in which he made the return trip. Mr.
. Dack thinks he has one of the nicest
' running machines in this locality and it
ia certainly a fine one.
Miss Rose Gregorious and A. O. Scott,
two well known Columbus people, were
married in Council Bluffs, Saturday,
October 6, by Kev. DeLong. They went
to Omaha to take in the Ak-sar-ben and
surprised their friends by getting mar
ried. On their return home they were
treated to a genuine old fashioned
charivari. The groom responded in his
usual "jovial manner. The Journal ex-

Ed Fitzpatrick will leave Saturday for
the Canal Zone and resume his duties as
postmaster at Empire. Ed was em
ployed in the Columbus office for a num
ber of years and in. comparing the
methods of transacting business he finds
some things quite different there. While
the town of Empire is quite small and
does not furnish much of the postal
business, the surrounding camps make
up the deficiency. In tbat country the
registry business leads all other, the
amount done in that line being enor
mousenough" for a large city; and the
foreign registers constitute the bulk of
this. Another convience that Uncle
Sam provides for those on the Isthmus
ia the issuing of foreign money orders.
Instead of drawing a foreign order they
draw a domestic order on the New York
office and instruct tbat office as to what
country the order should be drawn on.
This saves much time and k quite con

A special train of sis coaches from St.
Joseph, Mo. arrived in Columbus yester
day afternoon having on board a part
of sixty-two. wholesale and retail busi
ness men from the southern city. The
excursion was conducted by the busi
ness men's commercial club of St. Joe
and wiil visit over one hundred towns
and cities in Nebraska and Kansas
During their short stop in our city the
various business establishments .were
visited, and as this fraternal part of the
program was being carried out, the
Fourth Regement band which accom
panied the excursionists entertained our
cftizens with music. The members of
the club distributed neat eorvenirs in
the shape of padlocks with the inscrip
tions ' lock your future with St. Joseph,
Missouri." E. L. McDonald, an old
time printer and newspuper man, but
who is now deputy city clerk, accom
panied the excursionsioeists is special
correspondent for the St. Joseph daily
papers, and while here he took an op
portunity to visit the local papers. The
St. Joseph people are hnstlers and be
lievo in going after business wherever
they can find it. Accompanying the
party was a car with railroad officials
aboard, who were looking after the well
fare of the excursionists.
Everybody knew it was Bryan day in
Cclnmbuslastr'Stfturdtsy. Before noon
the crowd commenced to gather, and
when the branch trains arrived they
were loaded down. The Colum
bus band met the incoming trains
and after the last one pulled in, the
Spalding trains, they marched to the
North Opera house, where the speaking
was held. The opera house was crowd'
ed to its capacity and a number were
unable to find seats. Mr. Bryan was
the first speaker and his talk was along
the same line as he has been making.
He claimed the republicans had stolen
the democratic thunder and his anti
railroad talk was along the line of gov
ernment ownership. A. C. Shallenber
ger followed Mr. Bryan, but he was
handicapped by being preceded by a
presidential candidate. Ihe Spalding
train was held until after the speaking
and quite a number from that line were
in attendance. In the evening the Nor
folk train was obliged to add another
coach in order to be able to take all the
people up that line.
Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Chambers had a
