Luther 11. North of this place, who
returned on Friday laBt from General
Ouster's exploring expedition, submitted
to an interview by a Journal reporter,
who obtained from him the following
particulars: Mr. North was connected
with the scientific part of the explorers,
as assistant to G. B. Grinnel, a paleon
tologist of Yale oollege. The expedition
started from Fort Lincoln, under com
mand of General Custer, on tbe 2d of
July, with ten companies of cavalry, two
of infantry, besides teamsters and pri
vate citizens, to the number of one hun
dred and fifty. Bismarck, opposite Fort
Lincoln, is tbe last settlement. Mr.
North describes the country between
that and the Black Hills as poor and
desolate looking, vegetation short and
dry, and the conntry all burned over on
their return. The water along the route
until the foot of tbe Hills, is poor, im
pregnated with alkali. Mr. North de
scribes the Black Hills as a wonderful
.country. The valleys are narrow, but
look productive. There is a vast amount
of pine timber, mostly pitch pine, but
some spruce. The water in the moun
tains is very excellent. Game is abund
ant, audi as deer, elk, grizzley bear, be
sides plenty of small game. Good fish
are fouud in abundance, but of a variety
which none of tLe expedition seemed to
be acquainted with. There was no
trouble with the Indians at any time,
though fresh camping grounds were
found. There was nothing of extraor
dinary interest occurred, and nothing of
special note discovered. At tbe head of
tbe Grand river, the explorers came upon
a cave, of which they had heard a good
deal of their Indian guides, one of them
saying that the devil and all his imps
lived there, and that the Great Spirit
had painted hieroglyphics on the walls,
that these often shone like fire, and that
yells and groans were heard to proceed
from the cave. When explored, however,
it was found to have no particular inter
est attached to it. The "reception room"
was about fifty feet long and twelve feet
high, and they succeeded, by crawling on
their bellies, in running to a point four
hundred feet from the entrance. The
hieroglyphics turned out to be rude pic
tures of Indians, suns and horses, such
as savages paint on their buffalo robes,
and some of the party allowed that if the
"Great Spirit" couldn't paint better than
that he bad better sell out. This is tbe
first expedition that ever entered tbe
Black Hills, though several had been
aiound tbem Gold was found, and the
miners were satisfied from tbe prospect
ing that there was abundance of it. At
a depth of six feet it "panned out"
twenty-five to fifty cents a pan. The
expedition returned to Fort Lincoln on

The old settlers of Oolfax county held
thair seventh annual picnic last weak at
Schuyler. It was a great saoeess, tbare
beiag three taoaaand people in attend
ance. Tbe following is taken from tbe
Free Lance: "W. A. McAllister, for
years an attorney of Colnmbaa, but one
of the first settlers in this county, the
family locating south of Richland along
the lake that now bears the name, was
the next speaker. He said he came here
as a boy fifty years ago when there were
oountless buffalos and when Indians
were plentiful. He told about an Indian
massacre at Plum creek. He reviewed
the trials and hardships of those days
and told how they had to go to Omaha,
to market, which meant a week's trip
three days each way hauling grain down
and provisions home. The settlers sold
feed to freighters and emigrants and al
ways got from one to two dollars per
bushel for it. In those days there was
but one threshing machine in the coun
try to do threshing for the settlers who
were along the Platte river and few and
far between. The prices were ten cents
per bushel for wheat and six cents for
oats. He mentioned the old settler and
their dances and entertainments, going
miles to same. It was an interesting
and entertaining 'review. One good
point was the pride he always took in
tbe state, even at that early date."
Columbus is going to have the largest
grain elevator in the state outside of
Omaha and Lincoln and it will be com
pleted and ready for business by Decem
ber 1. The T. B. Hord Grain Oo. are
erecting this building for their use and
it is being built modern throughout,
and is to be used mainly for cleaning in
transit tbe grain bought at their twenty
one elevators located on the Union Paci
fic. The elevator will have a oapoity of
230,000 bushels, and is 182 feet long and
the elevator portion on the west part
will be 107 feet high, from the track. It
will be equipped with power unloaders
for unloading cars; car puller, cleaner,
and patent cooler for taking care of grain
that may become heated. Belt convey
ors, one at the top and one at the bot
tom, and each 150 feet in length, will be
used to transfer the grain from one por
tion of the building to another, and two
elevator stands will be used for elevating.
It will require individal motara whose
power aggregate seventy-five horse pow
er, to operate tbe machinery, and this
will be furnished by the city plant.
Twenty-five cars of lumber, sixteen cars
of tone, twelve oars of saad and three
oars of cement will be used in the con
struction of the building.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Stevenson was tbe scene of a pretty but
quiet wedding Monday afternoon when
their oldest daughter. Miss Vie, was
united in tbe holy bonds of matrimony
to Lawrence Shaw. The nuptials were
pronounced by tbe Rev. Dibble, pastor
of tbe Congregational church, late in the
afternoon, in the presence of a few re
latives and intimate friends of the bride
and groom. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw depart
ed immediatly after th9 ceremony for
Omaha for a short sojourn. The bride,
who has been employed as stenographer
in the Columbus Creamery, which is
owned and operated by her father, is well
known, and by her kind and gentle man
ner has won many friends. The groom
who was formerly from Kearnev, is one
of Columbus' progressive young men
and for tbe past year has been employed
as book-keeper in tbe Columbus Cream
ery. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw will make this
city their future home.
Tbe Fourth annual reunion and en
campment of the Westlicber Krieger
bund (German Western Veteran Asso
ciation) will be held in Columbus
September 4, 5 and 6, 1909. The reunion
this year was held at tbe German home
in Omaha and about 8,000 people were
in attendance. The two delegates rep
resenting the local order were Bert
Engleman and Gust Harms, and besides
the delegates Editor Kinder of the
Biene and others were in attendance.
The organization is three years old and
composed of men who have served an
enlistment in the German army. The
distriot which will be represented at the
Columbus reunion is composed of all
tbe western states, and as the order is
growing rapidly at least 4,000 people
will be here then. The local society was
organized last spring and has member
ship of twenty-eight, Peter Schmitt
being president and H. F. Greiner, sec
retary. Dr. A. G. Luesohen, who has been lo
cated in Columbus for tbe last few years,
has sold his practice to Dr. Campbell of
Beatrice, bis successor taking charge
about November 1. Sometime ago Dr.
Lueschen took a trip to the Pacific
coast and the city of Los Angeles, and
tbe result was his decision to move to
that city and engage in bis profession.
Tbe doctor will leave this city about
November 1 and go to New York city for
a post graduate conree. after which he
will go to his new location. This deal
does not include the new building which

our Right Reverend Bishop Scannel and
the Clergy of Nebraska, who take a deep
interest in our order, and we hope that
by our conduct, we will prove worthy of
That we return our sinoere thanks to
the members of the order in Columbus,
for the beautiful reception, and kindly
way in which we were entertained while
in their oity.
That we again assert our unswerving
fidelity to the fundamental principles of
our order, vis: The complete independ
ence of Ireland; while we welcome any
measure that will bring relief to our suf
fering bretherain Ireland, never-the-less
we will never be satisfied with anything
less than complete and absolute separa
tion from England, and we pledge our
selves to work unceasingly to attain that
That while we are glad to see any
movement that will uplift our race or
better our people at' home or abroad, we
cannot as an organization indorse any
special policy, but, we recognize the
right of the individual member to take
part in any movement he deems best;
and while tbe Ancient Order of Hiberni
ans stays clear of all other organizations,
we will yield to no organization or so
ciety in our efforts to presume the purest
principels of Irish Nationality, and will
not allow any set of men to dictate to us
the policy of our order.
That we heartily indorse and pledge
our fullest support to the revival of Irish
Industries, whioh naturaly will be tbe
greatest relief, to tbe people of Ireland,
until they be allowed to manage tbeir
own affairs. That we commend the
great work of the Ladies Auxiliary and
recommend that organization to the
earnest support of all our members.
That we are in hearty sympathy with
the recommendation of our National
President, in regard to organization of
juvenile divisions, and we refer this sug
gestion to our incoming offloers for their
most earnest consideration and develop
ment. That we heartily congratulate our
National Editor Patrick J. Hartigoin on
the able and scholarly way in which he
has edited the National Hibernian, and
we belief that tbe people of every Cathol
ic home would be better for reading
such a paper.
We most earnestly recommend to our
members and their families, the True
Voice of Omaha, a paper whioh is an ab
solute necessity in every Catholic home
in Nebraska, and we thank the Rev.
Editor for the kindly way in which he
has at all times treated our order, and
we sincerely hope that tbe True Voioe
will find its way to every Catholic home
in the west.
As members of a race whose devotion
to tbe Catholic church is known the
world over,, we belief that our ohildren
cannot make good citizens unless they
receive a thorough Christian Education
in their early youth, we earnestly re
commend tbe Parochial schools for tbe
children of Irish parents and we pledge
ourselves to give tbem our earnest sup
port at all times.
We view with great pride the progress
that has been made in Ireland with the
Gaelic Language, and we recommend
that tbe incoming State President in
terest himself in organizing a Gaelic
class in each division of our order in
That we highly commend the action of
our Nationol President in bringing
about tbe alliance of our order with tbe
We warn all officers and members that
