Files of The Journal, July 8, 1874.
Sioce the 4th of July tbe luxury of a
cool night is not a common occurrence.
Some experience iu Nebraska leads us to
beliere that tbe olimste is undergoing a
change in this particular. We do aot
like to part with cool nights in hot
weather, but if the change comes it is by
a law that will compel us to submit,
unless we are willing to take our sleep
ing rooms down deep in cellars.
We are indebted to M. Maher, one of
the board of county commissioners, for
the following items relative to the levies
made for tbe present year, to-wit: The
entire levy for county purposes is 20J
mills. This levy-we understand inoludee
all levies for special purposes. Tbe levy
for state purposes is 64 .mills. The
special levy tor Onlunbus precinct is6
mills. Whatever happens, our taxes
must be levied and collected. The peo
ple have selected their several agents to
manage these matters and we hope they
are managed in tbe interests of tbe peo
ple, but the 20J mills for county pur
poses appears heavy.
Tbe dry weather of the past week has
had its effect upon the growing crops,
but it is generally thought that wheat
is too far along to be injured much.
Many fields of this grain will be har
vested this week, tbe sod wheat being
nearest ready to -cut. Those who are
accustomed to produce good corn are
now giving it all the attention possible,
pulling the weeds from about the stalks,
hoeing and plowing, and purpose finish
ing with a narrow stirring plow, throw
ing the moist soil well up against the
stalk. In using the plow care should be
taken not to disturb the tap root.

Specials to the Denver convention com
menced passing through Columbus Sun
day. The Columbus crowd, accom
panied by others from towns on tbe
Norfolk and Spalding branches, pnlled
out in a special car about 6:30 p. m.
The same train contained a hundred
Bryan shooters from Fremont. Two
specials, filled with small-fry Tammany
braves, accompanied by Boss John Bar
leycorn, who appeared to be in full com
mand, were the first to arrive.
When tbe first of the Tammany
trains reached ColumbuB, tbe braves in
one of tbe oars appeared to have exhaust
ed their supply of shouting elixer, and
several cases were hoisted on board to
replenish the stock. One of tbe braves
with a tbiok neck, and wearing a dirty
shirt and a jag. made a few Bowery re
marks on the political issues of the day.
Another brave was holding an animated
argument with "Old Bill Devery," whom
he designated as the "worst pick pocket
in New York City." The entire bunch
was a fair sample of Tammany politicians
and it is some satisfaction to the friends
and admirers of Mr. Bryan to know that
tbe Tammany sluggers prefer almost any
other candidate than tbe Nebraska man.
President Karr of the Commercial
club has been interesting himself on "be
half of the club, for better train service
for Columbus on tbe Spalding branch.
Under the present schedule there is but
an hour between tbe arrival of the pas
senger on that branch and its return,
which gives little or no time in Col
umbus. On the other band, the Norfolk
passenger train arrives at about one
o'clock and returns at 7:30. This per
mits passengers from up that line to
put in the whole afternoon in Columbus,
with tbe result tbst our merchants pro
fit thereby. Mr. Karr belives that it
will be a big benefit, both to Columbus
and the company, in the increase of
business, and he has taken tbe matter
up' with General Manager Mohler, who
promised to see what could be done and
expressed a willingness to assist in any
thing that would be benefical to the
company and this city.
Tbe high water at Lincoln was re
sponsible for some of tbe special trains
to the Denver convention passing
through this city. Besides the Dahlman
special train, which picked up a car load
from the Spalding and Albion branches
at this place, the Rock Island was com
pelled to send two of their trains, the
first one carrying the Jefferson club of
St. Louis and the second being tbsf
fourth section of Tom Johnson's special,
over the Union Pacific. Besides the
special trains the Rock Island handled
two of their regular trains and the ttur
liugton one of their Denver trains over
the Union Pacific. The high water re
sulted in all trains on tbe Columbus and
Lincoln line of the Burlington being an
nulled Monday and Tuesday. The pas
senger succeeded in reaching Seward
Monday, but was turned around and
sent back.

F. P. Hackstock. the HuBaohrev Ae
ronaut Killed Here oa the Fourth.
Three accidents, on Eleventh street,
oue of them resulting in death, happen
ed in Columbus on the Fourth.
F. P. Hackstock. the Humphrey aero
naut, fell from'hia balloon and was in
stantly killed. Owing to the stiff wind
that was blowing. Hackstock and his as
sistant decided to inflate their balloon
in front of tbe Pacific hotel. It is stated
that Haokitock's assistant pointed out
the danger of sending up the balloon at
tbe point where it was "inflated, but the
aeronaut appeared willing to take tbe
risk, as he was anxious to make the as
cent on time and then go to Schuyler.
where be expected, to make another as
cent Nt-r in tbe day. About 2:15, after
Hackatockhad fastened "one hand to the
bar on tbe balloon with a strap, he gave
the signal to those holdiog the ropes to
let go. Aa the balloon arose the aero
naut waved his hand to tbe crowd.
Clearing tbe trees opposite tbe hotel,
the balloon started almost directly north,
but failed to ascend high enough to clear
the electric light wires in the alley in the
rear or the buildings on Eleventh
street. Hackstock struck tbe wires
with terrific force and a seoond later was
hurled against the chimney of tbe build
ing where tbe Crystal theater is located.
After reaching this building the balloon
commenced to ascend higher, and after
passing over the structure tbe strap
whioh held the aeroanut's hand broke
and he fell to the pavement, striking on
his head and crashing in his skull. The
injured man was at once placed in an
automobile and hurried toward tbe
hospital, but died before reaching that
place. Later tbe remains were taken
to Gass' undertaking establishment
where they were prepared for burial.
The dead man was formerly a resideat
of Humphrey, but lately his parents
.moved to Cedar Rapids, this state. He
was 28 yearn old.
The remains were taken to Humphrey
for burial.
Daring the excitement on Eleventh
street at-tbe time of tbe accident, a man
driving a horse ran into a woman knock
ing down, but fortunately she escaped
with only a few bruises.
In the evening,- about 9 o'clock, the
third accident on .Eleventh street ocour-.
ed. The committee appointed to super
intend the fire works display had just
commenced operations, when a spark
ignited all tbe rockets, caudles and whirl-ft-gigga
and for about one minute there
was a display that stampeded the crowd.
Fortunately no one was injured.
The Fourth in Columbus.
The celebration in Columbus on the
Fourth attracted a large crowd from the
country and surrounding towns, and the
program, as advertised, was carried out.
Hon. August Thomas, of New York,
speaker of tbe day, delivered one of the
finest addresses ever heard in Columbua
on a like occasion. The ball game be
tween Central City and Columbus teams,
was won by the former. The other
sports were equally bs attractive. The
automobile parade in the evening was
one of tbe features of the day. Some o'
tbe machines were tastefully decorated
and presented a gaudy appearance. The
day's pleasure was marred by a sad acci
dent, the death of Frank Hackstock, the
young man who fell from his balloon and
was killed, an account of which will be
found elsewhere in this paper.
