After eight weeks of suffering from ! rheumatism and nervous trouble ending with pnenmonia, John G. Becher pasetd away at his home last Thursday after noon at four o'clock. Two months ago be went to his home from the office com plaining that he was not fseling well, and from that time on be was unable to leave the boase, and was out of his bed but a few times. With him when he died was bis wife and children and his broth er, W. S. Becher of Omaha. The death of Mr. Becher removes a man prominent in democratic political circles, and one who has held both county and city offi ces, being treasurer of the county two terms and mayor of the city for the year 1003. Besides this be was deputy coun ty treasurer under H. S. Elliott and al so held other positions at the court houte. For the last three years Mr. Becher has been the junior member of tlie firm of Elliott, 8peice k Co., and since the organization of the Equitable Building and loan association has been secretary of that institution, and to his efforts are due the present condition of the association. Mr. Becher was a man who made friends and kept them, and was universally liked by all. He was a member of the Orpheus, which he as sisted in organizing, an honorary mem ber of the Bissell Hose company of the city fire department. He was also a member of the Knights of Pythias, Woodmen of (the World, Sons of Herman Modern Woidmen, A. O. U. W., Modern Brotherhood of America and Royal High landers. John G. Becher was born in this city February 5. 1863, being the eld est son of Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Becher, both deceased. Mr. Becher' s father was the first Union Pacifio agent in Colum bus and later served as county clerk. On November 6, 1888, he was married to Miss Susan Wake, who with eight ohildrea, survives him. The children are Frank. Charles, Marguerite, Estella, Henry, Lester, and Catherine Becher, and Mrs. Lottie Kife. A brother, W. 8. Becher, and two sisters, Mia. Anna Richards and Estella Becher, are the other surviving relatives. The funeral was held from the family home at 2 o'clock Sunday and was conducted by Rev. Roush of the Methodist churoh, the music being by the choir of Grace church. The City Band, of whioh Mr. Becher, was a former mem ber, headed the procession to the ceme tery, where the services were conducted by Rev. Roush. The large concouse of people who attended the services,' both at the bome-andUba cemetery, was a fit--1 ung tcauiuuauu i uw OBarmu niw www he was held by all. The Corn show at the Fireman's hall last Saturday afternoon brought out twenty-two entries. C. B. Pugsley of the atate experiment farm at Lincoln, was to have judged the exhibits, but owing to a previous engagement, could not be here. In his absence three local judges, Albert Stenger, D. A. Becher and O. O. Gray, were elected, and they awarded the prizes as follows: Yellow corn First prize, Ed Loseke; second prize, D. G. Bartels; third prize, John Grossniok laus. White corn First prize, Fred Mueller; second prize, M. A. Rice; third prize, Carl Mueller. Calico corn First prize, Pella Rice; second prize, W. F. Dodde; third prize, Simon Iossi. In the evening Mr. Pugsley passed through the city and he was asked to address a meeting on corn culture, and as the judges did not consider themselves ex perts in corn judging, he was asked to review their awards. Redid so, and in each case agreed with the decision of the local judges. As there were some very nice specimens on exhibition, it was decided to make up an exhibit for National corn show at Omaha next mon th, and there is a prospect that Platte county may carry off some of the honors. Mr. George Godel, formerly of Scrib ner. bat who is now moving on the Fred' Stenger farm two miles southeast of the city, met with a painful accident Friday afternoon. The team which he was driving was very fractions and became frightened at a mattress, which had fall en from the load of household furniture that be had been unloading, and became unmanageable and ran away, running into a telephone pole near M.C. Heating's residence on East Eleventh street. Mr. Godel was thrown from the wagon and severely injured. He was immediately taken to the Keating home, where medi cal aid was summoned and later in- the day was removed to St Mary's hospital, where. he is suffering a broken collar bone, and is also badly braised about the head and shoulders. Many witnessed the accident and say that Mr. Godel is very fortunate in not losing his life as it waya very wicked runaway. Mr.Godel's family will arrive in the city soon. Forty years ago the first Y. M. O. A. meeting ever held in this city was con ducted by Robert Weidensall, at that time the first general 'secretary of the Y. M. C. A. Today Mr. Weidensall is the secretary of the International Young Men's Christian associations of New York city, and in reaching that position hss traveled over world in the work, and has the honor of being the oldest secretary in America. The local secre tary issued an inviatation to Mr. Weid ensall to take part in the opening of the new building, and in accepting it he mentioned the fact of his holding a meet ing in this city forty years ago, aad said hewoald be more than pleased to be hers, saying that he had never besaia Columbus since that time.
