Cement crossings was the important
matter taken up by the oity council last
.Friday evening. At a former meeting
bids for this work were opened, and H.
G. MoCord offered to do the work for
-21 J oeBts per foot and Jacob Glur for
25 cents per foot. The committee re
' "ported in favor of accepting the lowest
. bid. but the council rejected both bids
and awarded the contract to Mr. Glur
for 23 cents per foot. Soon after the
eouncil'met last Friday night an injunc-
tion was served on them by Sheriff Oar-
'rig. restraining them from giving the
. cement work to Mr. Glur. But it seems
..'the. council had forestalled this action,
' u Mayor Phillips vetoed the resolution
''giving the work to Mr. Glur and the
resolution was withdrawn andone intro
duced asking bids on the same work,
. after an. estimate had been submitted by
'the oity engineer. This latter was not
' done in the first place, as required by
".iaw. . At the next meeting bids will be
. . read vertised for, and in the meantime the
." injunction will be disposed of, as the
" 'beariag is aet for Monday. The coun-
.. oilmen who voted against giving the
work to Mr. MoCord have not publicly
'. stated their reasons for so doing, and
until the matter is threshed over the
. information will not become public

Promontory. Ever bear the name be
fore? Possibly some will recall the
name of the place. It doesn't amount
to much now, but 39 years ago, the 10th
of May, there occurred in this little
village. 638 miles east of Sacramento in
Utah, an event of national importance
which' marked an epoch in the history of
the nation. On the date above men
tioned, May 10, 1869, the last spike was
driven in the Union Pacific which united
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans with the
iron rails of commerce. Now Promon
tory is almost forgotten, but on that day
the village contained many prominent
men from California and other Pacific
coast states to witness the ceremony
whioh meant so much in the develop
ment of the west. Every prominent
city in the country was connected by
wire with Promontory. The Governor
of California was present and took part
in the ceremony. The last tie was made
of highly polished California laurel. On
this tie was a silver plate bearing the
inscription: "The last tie laid in the
completion of the Pacific railroad, May
10, 1869." Into the tie were driven four
spikes, two of silver and two of gold. It
was Abraham Lincoln, who, in his mem
orable campaign with Stephen A. Doug
las for a seat in the U. S. Senate, so
strongly advocated the building of 'the
Union Pacific. Later, when he became
President, even with the burden of a
civil war on his shoulders, he found time
to inaugurate the movement which
ended at Promontory on that May day
39 years ago, four years after the Great
Emancipator had passed away. .History
has been made since the last spike was
driven. An area of commercial develop
ment has taken place. The population
of the country has been more than donb
led and the West reclaimed from its wild
state. The war whoop of the savage has
died away, the tepee has given place to
the farm residence and the plains over
which roamed countless millions of
buffalo have been converted into fields
of growing corn and' wheat. Although
it is not generally known, the first pre
liminary survey for a road across the
continent from the Missouri river to the
Pacific coast was made up the Niobrara
valley. Even at that early day there
was a settlement near the mouth of
Niobrara river and a town started which
still retains the name of Niobrara. When
the survey, was made Niobrara had high
hopes of becoming a town of import-'
ance, but the change of the route made
Omaha and caused a commercial, center
jtqspriojCJiPr -Niobrara is stiU,a grillage,
but' will ever remain aa historic spot in"
Nebraska. In 1881 the original' town
was swept away by a flood in the' Mis
souri, but the place was rebuilt. The
town was first settled by the Mormons
Bids for the placing of a beating plant
in the High school building, were open
ed by the Board of Education last Satur
day afternoon and the contract awarded
to A. Dussell & Son of this city. There
were two bids and that of Mr. Dussell
was the lowest. The heating of the
High sohoofbuildipg has been a serious
proposition ever since the building was
constructed and it has long been evident
that the furnace would have to be taken
out and some other system substituted.
After careful consideration by the board
and a thotough investigation of the dif
ferent heating plants, the hot water
system was adopted. Work on the in
stallation of the system will be com
menced at once and completed before
the fall term of school opens. The
amount of the contract is over $5,500 and
our home firm is to be congratulated on

A new time card, which made a gener
al change in the time of Union Pacific
trains, went into effect Sunday. West
bound trains are affected by the plaoing
in service of the Lane out off, a piece of
work which reduced the chsUnce from
Columbus to Omaha by ten miles, and
cost th road $3,500,000 to build. Leav
ing the main line at Lane it goes almost
direct to Omaha and besides making a
saving distance, does away with the
heavy grades on the old track. On the
west bound trains the times is ss fol
lows: No. 1, the Overland Limited,
now arrives at 11:24. nine minutes earl
ier; No. 3 at 6:5, five minutes earlier; No.
5. at 624, thirteen minutes earlier; No.
9, seven minutes earlier, at 11:48; No, 13
at 11:10, thirteen minutes earlier, and
No. 15 at 6:32, thirteen minutes earlier.
There has been a shortening of time of
eastbound trains and the following have
been affected: No. 2 is now due here at
6:32, thirteen minutes earlier: No. 6 five
minutes earlier, at 1:30; No. 12 at 3:12,
twelve minutes later; No. 14, at 1:00, in
stead of 1255, and No. If, the east bound
mail train, twenty-two minutes later, at
2:30. The time of the trains arriving at
and leaving Omaha is unchanged, the
difference in time being made in running.
The Columbus local freight now goes
only to Valley instead of Omaha, making
a change in the number of crews. On
the Lane cut off only west bound trains
use the new track, but the local passen
ger fare between here and Omaha has
been reduced from $1.85 to $15, s sav
in; of twenty cents. In about thirty
days the double track between Lane and
Omaha will be completed, at whioh
time all trains, except the locals, will use
the new line.
"A trick that has the appearance of a
smooth swindle." says 'the Algona(Iowa)
Courier, "was recently worked on a'
Lotts Greek farmer. A well dressed,
smooth looking chap, wearing glasses
and an air of authority, went through
the country and stopped at several places
and stated that he was authorized to test
cows for tuberculosis. He then went on
with his test,' or mock test perhaps, and
told this farmer that ten of his fourteen
cows, the pick of the herd, were tuber;
cular and that he should dispose of them
The farmer felt pretty bad over the mat
ter and asked if he should kill them.
The fellow said no, that he need not kill
them, but it he got a chance to sell tbem
to someone who would take them out of
the state he might do that and get some
thing out of them. The fellow then
went on to.test other herds. It was the
second day after this inoident that an
elderly man came along looking for cows
that were for sale. He came to this
farmer and stated what he wanted, and
the farmer was anxious to sell those ten
cows and let the stranger have those ten
best cows at $15 to $16 a head. The buy
er took them off. and then the farmer
and his neighbors bsgan to think that
pethapa the young man and the old man
were in some way connected with eaoh
other. At all events the old man got the
oows pretty cheap. "
The band boys are still circulating
their list for subscriptions for the sum
mer concerts. It was thought the first
concert would be given Wednesday eve
ning, May 20, but the subscriptions did
not come up to the expectations and con-
squently the first concert was postponed
to some future date, which we hope will
be soon. The band is an organization
that our people are very proud of, and
therefore the citizens should loosen their
purse strings and lend a helping band.
In asking for this money the boys do
not feel as though they were requesting
anything unreasonable, as it takes muob
hard work and time to make the band a
sucress snd whatever you may donate
will be greatly appreciated.
For various reasons the Grand Island
Distriot Epworth League convention will

schools are. The program committee
have been fortunate in securing the ser
vice of Rev. Cha. P. Lang, of St. Ed
ward, to give a chalk talk as to the best
methods of studying the Bible. Hehaa
made this a special study for the past
eighteen years, and the delegates should
bring note books and take home many

"More new -residences are being put
up in Columbus than in any other town
in the state, taking its size into consid
eration."' was the remark made by a
man who:is in a position to know what
he is talking about. In speaking further
on the subject he said that while there
were so many buildings being put up
the demand did not decrease in the least,
for ss soon as a house is completed it ia
either rented at once or purchased by
some one for a home. This activity in
the building line does not indicate that
Columbus is having a boom, but a good
steady growth, to meet the requirements
of those desiring to locate here.

There were three ball games lsst Sun
day, a double header in the city and one
on the grounds of the Shell Creek But
termilks, north of town. On the home
grounds the first game was between
Hose Company No. 1 and Hose Company
No. 2 of the fire department league, aad
resulted in a victory for No. 2 by a score
of 7 to 3. The second game was between
the home team and Madison and result
ed in a score of 13 to 0 in favor of Co
lumbus. At the grounds of the 8hell
Creek Buttermilks the Hookies of the
Fire department league were defeated
by a score of 19 to 15. The standing of
the fire company league is ss follows:
Hookies, plsyed two games and lost two;
Hose Company No. 1 played two games
and lost one and won one; Hose Company
No. 3, played two games aBd won two.
The Fire department league now .ban

siderable talk of the Bissell's organizing
a team and entering race for the cfaam
pionship. Another double header is
billed for Sunday. Silver Creek and Co

game as the Hookies have materially
strenghtened their team and hope to
change their standing as to percentage
of games lost and won.
