this meeting live hundred new names
were added to the already large list of
Modern Woodmen, while the Royal

The band boys are still circulating
their list forsubszriptionB for the sum
mer concerts and would like to secure
enough so the concerts cau begin May
20. In asking for this money the boys
do not feel as though they are request
ing anything unreasonable, as it takes
lots of hard work and time to make the
band a success and the amonnt received
goea to keep up the expenses of the or
ganization. These summer concerts are
looked forward to by our citizens and
are appreciated by the them and
strangers who happen to be in our city.
At a recent meeting of the stockhold

Salt Lake City, it was voted to authorize
the issue of $100,000,000 bonds. Of thjs
amount $50,000,000 will be used for con
struction purposes, and the probabilities
are that material now piled up in the
yards at this place and othet towns
along the main line of the road will soon
be put. to use and labor. employed at
good wages. When the financial flurry
struck the country last fall all construc

A traveling man who Sundayed in
Albion, was in the city Monday. At the
late election, he says, Albion went dry,
and since that time the lid has been put
on good and tight, and it is unlawful
for restaurants and hotels to sell, even a
cigar on the Sabbath; meat-markets are
not allowed to open Sunday, and collec
tions in the churches are forbidden. The
same conditions exist at Fullerton and
some of the other dry towns where a
Puritan Sunday appears to be the de
mand of the people.

Mrs. Bine Smith, living on route 5,
stepped from her carriage a short time
ago and dislocated her ankle, and before
the injured member was entirely healed
she aocidently fell and broke it. This
was no doubt a very painful accident,
but her many friends will be pleased to
learn that she is resting quite easy. She
was brought to Columbus Saturday, and
Dr. W. S. Evans attended to the injury.
Moriz Ladenberger filed a complaint
in Judge Ratterman's court charging
Jamas Hannon with assault and battery;
Ladenberger allowing his cow to run at
large being the cause of the trouble. -The
case was tried Monday and the. evidence
showed Ladenberger to be the agressor,
so the judge dismissed the complaint and
taxed the costs, amounting to $23 50, up
to Ladenberger, which he paid.
Carl Faulk has resigned his position
as butcher with Marty & Co., and goes

The Jaajaei't Tairty-eiath lirthday
On the llth day of May, ' 1870, in' a
little wooden structure, on the lot whioh
now stands the building occupied by A.
Dussell aa'a store room, the first num
ber of the Journal was printed, with the
names of Allen C. - Turner and M. K.
Tamer, father and son, as publishers
and proprietors. That was thirty-eight
yeare ago, and in the. yaara that have
past since that day wonderful changes
have taken place.
When the first number of the Journal
was printed, Columbus had only 300 in
habitants. The business .part of the
town was then confined to Seventh street
and Washington avenue. Only one pas
senger train each way was run over .the
Union Pacific. The Fremont Tribune,
North Platte Independent, and a paper
published at St. Helena, Cedar county,
were the only newspapers printed in the
North Platte country. The St. Helena
paper was established in 1857, and was
among the first papers printed in Ne
braska. It was moved to Hartington
when the M.'and O. road extended its
line into Cecar county and became the
organ of the populists, and suspended
publication when the populist party
One year after the Journal was estab
lished, the late Edward Rosewater issued
the first number of the Omaha DailyBee,
and the press that gave to the public the
first issue of the Bee was afterwards
purchased by the Journal and is now in
use and doing good work after sixty-five
years of active service. The founder of
the Bee had often expressed a desire to
M. K. Turner to purchase the old press
and place it in a conspicuous plsce in the
Bee building, but the sudden desth of
Mr. Rosewater in the building, which
stands as a monument to his energy and
ability as a publisher, prevented the
purchase of the maohine on which the
early editions of his great daily were
When the Journal first appeared it
was t called the Platte Journal,
but was afterwards changed to Columbus
Journal. When the paper was establish
ed, the oitizens of Grand Island wanted
the Turners to locate there, but they
made up their minds to try Columbus
first, and if the venture proved unpro
fitable to move to Grand Island, and in
selecting a name for the paper they were
governed by circumstances liable to
arise and in naming the paper the
Platte Journal, -removal to Grand Island
would not nave necessitated a change in
When the Journal was first establish
ed it was printed on an old-fashioned
hand press; it was a six-column folio in
size with columns 13 ems in width.
The width of the column was a! terwnrds
changed to-12 ems, and later to the
present width, 13 ems, which is now the
standard width for all newspapers.
In 1863, Andrew J. Stevens of Dee
Moines, came to Nebraska and laid out
an addition on the north side of the track.
The following year the Clotber house
was erected and a little later other build
ings were put up. The Turners first at
tempted to secure a lot in what was then
the business part of town on Seventh
street and Washington avenue, but the
price asked was so unreasonably high,
that they concluded to purchase a lot
between the two rival sections of the
village, and erected a frame building on'
the lot on Eleventh street where the
Journal was published until the old
structure was torn down and a concrete

on the Journal's subscription list were 3.

and Major Frank North and Jonas

gaged in business in Columbus and "who
bad advertising space in the paper, were
J. P. Becker, general store; Rickley &
rCo., dry goods; Boneeteel Brothers,
clothing; Schram Brothers, clothing, and
Marshall Smith, bakery. Messrs Becker
and Welch were also interested in one of
the first grist mills erected in this part
of the country, on Shell creek, nine miles
northeast of Columbus. It was to this
mill that settlers came from as far west
as Kearney and north as far as O'Neill to
In the thirty-eight years that it has
been published, the Journal never mis
sed but one issue, that was in October,
1871, when Mrs. Turner, wife of the
senior Turner,- died. All the Turner
family were sick with' the typhoid fever
at the time, and it was impossible to se
cure a printer to do the work'.
Allen C. Turner passed away Septem
ber 8, 1891. and Moses K. Turner, May
22f 1902. For more than thirty years
the latter conducted the Journal on con
servative lines, retaining the respect and
confidence of the community up to the
hour of bis death. The following tri
bute to his memory, written by a friend,
is taken from the files of the Journal of
May 28. 1903:
In conducting his paper be never al
lowed personal feeling to enter into his
writing; hie policy was to search for the
good in each person and help to encour
age them to do better by praising the
good qualities. There are few lines in
professional life that admit of a chance
for personal vengence aa does the news
paper, yet he never allowed this to inte
fere with what he considered his duty.
Indeed, be held no resentment in his
nature and was never known to slander
the character of another. Many times
when a diagrsctful act was made public,
and talked about.. he weald delay writ
ing about it until ahnoattiaM for print
ing, hopisg ta.be snared, ia some way, a
palatal daty In all his loeal aewa gath
ering be never iateatieaally published
matter that would stem to invade the
privacy of home. The golden rale, which
he held as a standard for life, waa traly
lived in thought aad action."
After the death of M. K. Tamer, the
Journal was continued under the man
agement of the Turnera.
J. A Turner started to work ia the
Journal office when the first number waa
issued and was with the paper up to
1904, a period of thirty-four years, and
during that time enjoyed only two brief
vacations. Ia-1893 he spent five weeks
at the World's Fair in Chicago, and. in
1878 made n trip went and was away
three weeks. George Turner still holda
a position in the Journal ofioe.
In 1894. Fred Abbott and Stewart'
Kennedy purchased the plant from the
Turner estate. Mr. Kennedy retired
from the firm and Mr. Abbott continued
the business until the fall of 1896, when
be retired, and R. G. Strother purchased
the plant. On the first of the present
month O. J. 8 took well , purchased an
interest in the business and the paper is
now conducted under the firm name of
8trother & 8tockwelL
"Fighting Bob" Evans, who wsa in
command of the battleship fleet that
made the trip around "The HornMrom
the Atlantic coast to the Golden Gate,
passed through Columbus Tuesday af
ternoon on his way east. Admiral Ev
ans haa been placed on the retired list,
on account of ' ill health, after serving
forty-eight yeara in the navy.
When the train pulled in. a large
orowd was present to greet the distin
guished traveler. Flags in the hands
of school children waved a welcome to
the fighting admiral as he appeared at
the rear of his special car, supporting
ing htmselt on crutches. He thanked
the people of "Columbus for the demon
stration, which he considered was not
for him personally but ,to the navy of
the country in which he had served for
forty-eight years. Looking down upon
the school children and the flags, he ad-1
monisbed the boys to keep the national
banner waving; to honor it, and also to
honor the giris and women, and ever
keep in mind that "the band that rocks
the cradle rales the world." At the no
elusion of his remarks a man standing
near the steps said something about
"Bob" entering the Kingdom of Heaven,
and the admiral responded that if he
was ever allowed to enter that place
he hoped to find plenty of water.
A writer in the Omaha Bee gives the
following brief sketch of the noted
"Evans wss sixteen years of age when
he entered the naval academy in I860.
When the war broke out bis family, be
ing Virginians, endeavored to end his
schooling at the academy in order that
he might enter the confederate service.
His mother went so far as to tender his
resignation, but, later, it was with
drawn and the young midshipman
graduated ahead of his time in 1863. He
at once entered the servioe of the Union
and fought gallantly to the close of the
war. The writer saw him at the naval
review in New York in 1893, and was
particularly struck with his pugnacity
of countenance and the halt in his walk.
The former does not debar one from
servioe in the navy, but an impediment
in the limbs usually means retirement
from the service. Admiral Evans is an
exoeption to the general rule. The in
juries which resulted in a missbspen
leg were received in two engagements
the naval assault on Fort Sunipterin
August, 1863, and the combined attack
on rort ftinber in January. 1865. He
was an ensign on one of the ships at
tacking Foit Sumpter and bad charge of
two guns. A shell came through tne
porthole, cut a trench in the deck and
broke his knee-cap. He refused to go
below to the surgeon. Stretching him
self in the trench made by the shell he
fought his two guns until the fight wss
over. Conspicuous gallantry marked
bis action at Fors Fisher. By the toes
of a coin he won the leadership of sn
attacking party of 100. He was the
first to mount the scaling ladder and
reach the parapet, only to receive a bullet
in the knee and three other wounds, and
fell inside the fort desperately - injured
and a prisoner. The following day the
fort was captured and Ensign Evans fell
into the hands of his friends. For . this
action congress awarded him a gold
medal, and a little later paid him the
rare honor of contiaaing him on the
active list and exempted him from physi
cal examination as to disability.''
