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 getting along nicely nt preseat and will soon recover from the effects of the ex plosion. ?"" G. D. Meiklejoha received a letter this week fromG.

FhUadel- i 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 ofthePresbyteriaacharca. Beprsasat 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. Speice, George Fairehild, Chas. Wurde- man, 8. J. Byaa, Jacob Greisen. y Third ward B. & Dkskinsoo, Gas Becher, jr., G. a Sheldon, H. A. Clark, C.J. Garlow. Fourth ward G. W. Philips. M. D. Karr, J. 8. Nichols, Frank Gerharz, Henry Bagatz. 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 the balance. 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 900 teams. 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 proposed water-power development of the Loup river, as presented by Mr. H. E. Babcock, begs to report as follows: "First Four committee has examiaed the reports of soate of the engineers who have-examined the plans and who pro aoanced the project feasible in every respect aad that the earning powern of such a development would undoubtedly be great. "Second The reports show that the Loup river k one of the most uniformly flowing stream that the United States geological survey haa ganged aad that successive developmeats are possible, the first development beiag capable of Droduotng fO.OOO horse power on n twelve-hour basis every day in the year, Successive developments will greatly iu orease the amount of power available, a total of 800,000 horse power oa a twelve hour basis being possible. Third Reports show that there is a market in Omaha. South OmahaGoaa- eil Bluffs aad other adjacent cities er tl approximately 40,000 to electric, reads ia alaee of aad a third de- it waald soon become a Jty. . Fourth That the coat of the first de velopmsat will be aeproxiaMtely 94,000- 000 for 50,000 horse power,' twelve-bour ssrvies eaoh day of the year, delivered to Omaha or other points equally- distant from the power plant. "Fifth That we are assured that capitalists aad manufacturers of ' S eial strength are satisfied that this power development would be n vary profitable lavesUasnt aad that they stand ready to assist ia finanoiag the project and that a corporation ia soon to be organist d known aa tbe Nebraska Power compaay, with aa authorised capital of 9l2.0u0.00o aad aa authorised bond issue of 98,000- 000. ' "Your committee believes that the de velopment of this project would be of in estimable value to Oasaha aad to the en tire atato of Nebraska. Every city with in 100 mikaof the Columbus power pl.tnt would receive a great impetus in its 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 bringing large factories here, factories 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 steam power or electric pro wer generat ed by steam pleats, it is the view of your committee that the- development -of the Loup river power would give Omaha her greatest need in becoming a great manu f acturing city.' "The cheap power would give Omaha advantages over any of her rivals that woald attract the attention of manu facturera the entire country over. "lour committee taererore recom mends that' the Commercial olab of Omaha indorses and encourages .the building "of a hydro-electric power plant aad believes that tbe general plans, i outlined by Mr. Babcock, .are practical andTahonld receive the assistance of the Commercial elab aad the citizens of Omaha and the entire stateot Nebraska." leatoBs.S. marketad hoge in'PTatte Center Monday.
