Mr. aad Ma. Wm. Connor of Shell
Creak towaahin are much eoucsrned
over the disappsaraace of their son 8sm,
who was hbUI March 90, attending the
Commercial college in this city. At the
time of his disappsaraace he was board
iag at the Central hotel. nd on that
evening a young mo, who was a stran
ger in the city, called for him. He was
informed that Sam had gone to his home
iu the country, and remarked that lie
thought ha could overtake him before be
noes far. Sam was about twenty-one
years of age and had no bad habits. He
had beea attending the college dunag
the winter aad was taking grant interest
in his studies. It was his iateatioa to
drop his studies ia about two weeks, and
then work for Chris Hilmer ib Shell
Creek township. So far his friends and
relatives have beea unable to get any
trace of him. and his disappearance ia
very much of a mystery to them:
Colambas people are known, far and
near, aa amoBg those who enjoy an out
ing, both hunting aad fishing. We now
have a game protective association that
bids fair to do much in the way of im
proving conditions in this vicinity. It
might be well for the general public to
know that this organization has about
150 members nt present, and names are
added almost daily. Those who are in
the habit of paying no attention to the
game laws had belter take a second
thought when they are out shooting or
fishing, for this association is going to do
all in their power to enforce the law.
The better way is tor all to assist ia the
protection of game birds that are to be
liberated, aad help tbe association to
succeed in their undertaking.
Last Friday Clarence Umland, son of
J. N. Umland, had an experience with a
railroad torpedo that he will not care to
go through again. A box which had
contained a supply of torpedoes had
been taken to the Umland home for use
as a hen's nest, and among the excelsior
the boy discovered a torpedo. His
curiosity led him to investigate what the
torpedo would do when expolded and he
placed it oa an old stove and struck, it
with a hand axe. The result was a bad
wound under the.cbin and one on the
side of the knee, which the required the
attendance of a physician. The boy if

The Second annual baaqaot of the
Colambas Commercial olah. held at Ue
Maannerchor hall last Thursday evening
was ample evidence that the orisjaalza
tioa is doing some effective Jboostiag for
Colambas. Aboai'two haadred ssem
bars ware preseat at the aweting and
banquet, which was eenred by the ladies
stives were present from the Oomssereisl
dabs of Fremont and Central City, aad
these with members of the local elnb
made short talks on the growth and pros
perity of Columbus daring the last
year. But the oae tsiag all were iatec
estad was the power, oaaal project. Pater
Schmitt. the Shell Creek miller, who
had just returned from a trip to Spokane
and the northwest, told of the wonder
ful development made there by tbe utili
sation of water power, and compared
that city before the plants ware develop
ed with Columbus at the present time.
H. E. Baboock, who haa been a permteat
worker for the project, was the -last
speaker, and he had asore encourage
ment to offer than since the beginning
of hm work. Hia talk was of -great in
terest to everyone present, nnd he ex
plained the disunities which had to be
surmounted and what had been done.
That the audience appreciated his efforts
was made manifest by tbe adoption of
a resolution that the Commercial Olab
express thanks to Messrs. H. E. Baboock
F. Jaeggi and Mr. Winkler for their un
tiring efforts to finance this great power
canal undertaking, and in tbe further
resolution that the Columbus Com
mercial Club fully endorses the Loup
river power canal project and will fur
ther it by a-skting tbe gentlemen in
their work. The rearrangement of the
wards in the city necessitated tbe elec
tion of an entire new board, whioh w
composed of the following gentlemen:
First ward L. Jaeggi, G.W.Viergutz,
G. Frischholz. Chas. F. 8egelke, F. J.
Kersenbrook, W. J. Walters.
Second ward Sam Gass, jr.,0. B.

Fourth ward G. W. Philips. M. D.

The foHowieg from tbe Fremont Tri
bane, written by one who was preseat
is of interest and covers the ground:
Various features of water power de
velopment for Nebraska were discussed
enthusiastically at the annual meeting
oftho Commercial olab at Columbus
lsst night. Bepreeeatatives were pre
sent from Fremont, Schuyler, Central
City. Grand Island and other towns.
Those who went from here were Presi
dent O. F. Turner of the Fremont club,
E. C. Misner and H. C. Richmond. .
H. E. Baboock, who for fourteen
years has been active ia the promotion of
of the Columbus canal project, made tbe
principal address of the evening on the
canal subject. He is- most sanguine
over prospects, and altho prominent
engineers have declared the Fremont
scheme to be the more feasible, Mr. Bab
cock still pins his faith to the one of the
Platte county town. He consoled the
Fremont delegates by saying thnt since
the power could be transmitted from
Columbus to Fremont with a loss of
but a tenth of one per cent, it would be
no particular advantage to the latter
place to have its project developed, in
preference to the one nt Columbus. It
would mean great things not only for
Fremont and Columbus, but for other
Nebraska towns and the state.
Mr. Babcock introduced Mr. Jaeggi of
Switzerland who made the statement
that he 'presented a foreign company
that was ready to take two and a quar
ter million dallors worth of bonds for
the scheme provided it got backing for
Babcock wants to see a twelve million
dollar power scheme developed. It
means 200.000 horsepower, whereas the
five-mrllion dollar scheme means but
50,000. He estimates tbe canal could be
built in n year and n half by 800 men and
The Commercial club meeting was a
large one. Nearly all of the three hun
dred members 'were preseat. Leaflets
containing the following resolutions of
the Omaha Commercial olnb endorsing
the proposed plant were distributed:
"Your committee on manufactures, to
which was referred the matter of tbe

"Your committee believes that the de

estimable value to Oasaha aad to the en

growth. The growth of our neighboring
cities would still farther increase tbe
rapid growth of oar great jobbing inter-
Bat aut of all. it would give Omaha
that cheap power which would result in

that woa'd employ from 2,000 to 9,000
workmen. While Omaha ia probably ss
favored as Kansas City, Minneapolis.
Chicago or St. Louis, in the price of

ed by steam pleats, it is the view of your
committee that the- development -of the

greatest need in becoming a great manu

"The cheap power would give Omaha
advantages over any of her rivals that
woald attract the attention of manu

mends that' the Commercial olab of
