Last Tuesday evening Gus G. Becher,
jr., secretary of the Commercial Club re
ceived a message from-H. E. .Babcock at
Omaha, requesting him to send a de
legation from Columbus to meet with
the Commercial Olnb of David City
Wednesday evening. Those who re
sponded to call were Henry Rgaz, M.
D. Karr, Edward Johnson and Leopold
I Jaeggi. Besides Mr. Babcock were also
Mr. Wakefield, of Omaha, secretary of
the Nebraska Power Company, and Mr.
Portar, a former representative from
Butler county. The meeting was held
in the conn-house and was vtry well at
tended by the members of the just one
week old Commerical Club of David
Oity. Mr. Babcock's address before the
meeting was an extract from bis well
written printed matter and he told his
hearers, who listened with enthusiastic
interest, of the enormous importance of
the coming Columbus Power Canal, and
what the enterprise would do for the
whole state, and especially for the cities
and lownB situated within a radius of a
hundred miles. Mr. Karr extended
greetings from the OolumbnB Commer
cial Club and invited the members from
David City to join hands in pushing this
great enterprise by pointing out the ad
vantages it would bring for oar towns
and state, and highly complimented Mr.
Babcock as a sticker. Mr. Porter, in
answer to Mr. Karr, stated that from ex
perience as a former member of the legis
lature, he was convinced that it would
be very nn wise to ask' any political body
to assist in building such an undertak
ing, as this was a distinct business pro
position and should not get mixed into
political schemes that would very likely
turn into corruption and ruinous delay
of the undertaking. He said further
that the Power Canal is sure to come and
that its financing is as much as assured,
even if the people of Nebraska do not
take hold as they should, yet an even
chance is offered to everyone who is
willing to invest his money the same
as the large bankers in Wall street, who
consent to a partnership with the home
people in Nebraska. Mr. Bell, the grain
dealer, and who is also owner of the Da
vid City electric light plant, endorsed
the statements made by Mr. Babcock,
saying that he has' known the Loup
river for forty years and believes fully in
its steady flow, and that if it is harnessed
will do all that it is claimed for it. He
also firmly believes that electric power
could be furnished for one-fourth of the
present cost, and he assured Mr. Bab
cock that he would be the first electri
cian in Nebraska to throw out his pres
ent costly equipmont and make applica
tion for power from the Loup.
One of the worst storms since January
12, 1888, visited this section last Thnrs
day evening. The drizzling rain of the
day changed to a wet snow and between
five and six o'clock in the evening it was
almost impossible to see. The velocity
of the wind was very high and farmers
report a number of windmills demolish
ed. Train service was badly crippled,
especially from the east. No. 5 of Friday
evening being composed of 15 and 3 and
the regular No. 5, which managed to
reach here about ten o'clock. Branch
trains fared better, however, and with
th6 aid of double headers managed to
make their trips. A report reached this
city that the ice in the Loup was break
ing up Thursday, but there did not seem
to be any foundation for the story. To
those who experienced the storm of
twenty-one years ago the fury of the
storm brought back recollection of that
event. The Btorm coming without warn
ing no doubt caused a large loss of live
stock, as the winter, as well as others,
have been such as to not warrant any
extra provision for a storm like this.
The special stamps which will be is
sued by the government in commemora
tion of the birth of Abraham Lincoln,
will be on sale here. The stamps will
be ready for distribution among the
offices a few days before Lincoln Day,
February 12, and Postmaster Kramer al
ready has his order placed for them.
The designs and portrait of the stamp
will vary somewhat from the usual pat
riotic series, which bear the busts of
famous Americans. On account of the
greatness of the occasion the stamp
will be highly distinctive in size and
character. Only one denomination of
the stamp will be issued, that of two
cents. It is understood that it will not
be ready for the public until just prior
to Lincoln day, and they will probably
not continue in circnlation longer than
a few months.
Wednesday and Thursday of next
week the Twenty-fifth annual encamp
ment of the Nebraska divison, Sons of
Veterans, will be held in this city, in the
Herchenhan hall. A number of the divi
sion officers are residents of this city,
among them being the commander, Bert
J. Galley; division patnotic instructor,
H. B. Reed; division inspector, H. W.
Westbrook; division secretary, A. L.
Rollin; division treasurer, E. P. Dussell.
The annual encampment brings a num
ber of delegates to this city, and while
the Nebraska division is not as large
as some of the eastern divisions, the
prospect is good for instituting a num
ber of new camps.

President Karr issued a call for a spe
cial meeting of the Commercial Club
Tuesday evening to talk over the Platte
river bridge situation. Quite a number
representative men of the city were pres
ent and afier the discussion the con
clusion arrived at was that the o-ily
way to secure a substantial bridge
across the Platte was for Columbus and
Columbus township to build it. Some
favored a bridge Similar to tbe one across
the Loup while others thought a wood
en structure would answer for years to
come. There is talk of calling a special
election for the purpose of voting bonds,
and a committee of four, consisting of G.
W. Phillips, G. Frischolz, G. A. Scbroe
der and M. D. Karr were appointed to
look up the matter and report to the
club at the meeting called by the presi
dent The Platte river divides three
counties and as a matter of justice this
city and township should not" be com
pelled to build a bridge, bat it is either
do this or lose all the trade from south
of the river, and that means a big sum to
Columbus and Columbus merchants.
And those living south of tbe Platte, and
tributary f.o this city, are very loyal to
Columbus, and while they are unable to
induce the counties they live in to con
tribute their just share toward the
bridge, they have offered to do what
they could by individual subscription.
After tbe bridge proposition was dis
posed of, Postmaster Kramer suggested
that the secretary of the club be in
structed to correspond with Congress
man Boyd and Senator Xoris Brown, re
questing them to urge on tbe post office
department the necessity of commencing
work on the Columbus public building
as soon as possible, and a motion to that
effect was carried. Early closing was
another subject brought before the
club, bat as there were very few mer
chants presenl, it was deferred until
another meeting. Mr. Porter, repre
senting the Columbus Power Canal,
spoke on behalf of that project and as
sured his hearers, that, barring another
panic, the money for the bnilding of the
canal would be forthcoming, and if
everything was favorable an announce
ment to that effect from Wall street
could be expected within ninety days.
Mrs. Dietricbs, wife of August Diet
richs, passed away at her home, one-half
mile north of this city, Saturday after
noon. Deceased had been in ill health
for tbe past two years. In December
Mr-and Mrs. Dietricbs went to Colorado
Springs, where Mrs. Dietricbs entered a'
sanitarium and remained there until a
few days previous to her death, at which
time Mr. Dietricbs received a message
stating that Mrs. Dietricha wi'hed
to return home. Mr. Dietricbs imme
diately went to Colorado and returned
last Thursday evening with his wife. At
first the change of climate seemed to be
beneficial to her. but later it was decided
that it was best for her to return home.
Mrs. Dietricbs, nee Miss Winnie Hejt
nenek, was born in Austria. April 16.
1867, and when at the age of eighteen
she accompanied her parents to America,
coming direct to Columbus, where Feb
ruary 23, 1889, she was united in mar
riage to August Dietrichs. To this
union ten children were born, namely,
Winnie, Clarence, Ruth. Rachael, Esther,
George, Harvey, Phillip, Howard and
Evelyn, all of whom are living except
Clarence who died in infancy, and who
with their father mourn tbe loss of a
kind and loving wife and mother. With
the exception of six years, three of
which were spent in New York and
three in Denver, Mr. and Mrs. Dietrichs
have resided in this city during their
married life. The funeral was held
Tuesday afternoon from tbe family resi
dence, Rev. Dibble, pastor of the Con
gregational church officiating and bnrial
was made in the Columbus cemetery.
Relatives who attended the funeral
from out of town were Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Dudek, jr., Mr. and Mrs. John
Dudek and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dudek,
sr., all of Schuyler.
About a year ago a fellow, by tbe name
of Trienes was arrested at Humphrey
and taken before Justice Schuetb, who
assessed him a fine, which included with
tbe costs, amounted to about $19. The
fellow gave his note for that amount and
was released, but failed to pay tbe note.
He landed in Humphrey the other day
and when the justice found it out he
committed him to the county jail to serve
out his fine, and Tuesday Deputy Sheriff
Jaworski went to Humphrey and brought
him here on the noon train. When he
arrived with his prisoner it was too late
for dinner, so Tom took him to a restaur
ant for something to est. Evidently
the fellow had been fasting for some
time, for he seemed to want 4o eat
everything in sight, and when the de
puty sheriff went to pay tbe bill be
found that the fellow had eaten $1.50
worth. Evidently he will not need
another square meal for some time.
Weakened by the force of the explosion
of tbe acetylene plant, tbe boiler of the
steam heating plant of the Thurston
hotel gave way last Wednesday, and con
sequently tbe hotel is without heat and
cannot take care of any guests. George
Lehman; the owner of the building, who
returned home from Excelsior springs,
Mo., last week, has had a number of
firms figuring on replacing the old boiler
with a new one, and this portion of tbe
work will be pushed at once so that tbe
hotel caa accomodate those who wish
rooms, as at present it is very difficult to
obtain a room in the city after nine
o'clock in the evening.

"In Mexico" U only one of tbe numer

Perhaps no better idea of the rich, pul

then by bearing those splendid melodies
characteristic of tbe people and the time,
sung by sweet voiced singers, they carry
their hearers back to tbe day of Maximi
lian, in the land of sunshine and of
Tuesday of this week George Lehman,
presented the fire department with &
check for $50, with an accompanying
letter expressing his appreciation of
their prompt and efficient work at the
Thurston Hotel fire last Monday even
ing. In speaking of tbe way the alarm
was responded to, it is safe to say that
there was never any quicker work on
the part of the department and it was
that which saved the hotel from being
D. G. Bartells, of north of Columbus,
returned Sunday from Buffalo conuty,
where he went to inspect some farming
land. He was well pleased with the
country and advises any of his Platte
county friends, who are thinking of
making a change to go and inspect this
land. Mr. Bartells was so well pleased
with that part of Nebraska that he has
expressed a desire to live there, but js
he is a very successful Platte county
farmer he will no doubt remain here.
Tbe Guthrie, Okie, Leader has the
following to say regarding a former Co
lumbus boy: "Pete Duffy, the El Reno
poet, is the author of a few verses en
titled 'El Reno's Kind of a Good Old
Town.' Everybody who visited the city
Saturday feels certain of tbe appropriate
ness of the title and tbe sentiment ex
pressed in the poem. Pete by the way,
is a probable candidate for governor,
and did his full share in entertaining the
visitors and making tbem feel at home "

There is something about tbe char

any old thing that comes along. In
Clarence Bennett's "A Royal Slave,"
which will be seen at tbe Opera House,
Feb. 9- there is a correspondent who not
only gets tbe news but gets the right
people out of trouble and then gets the
news but gets tbe right people out of
trouble and tbe other people, in trouble,
and finally gets the dainty dancing girl
The insurance adjusters are here look
ing over the Thurston loss, and as soon
as an agreement is reached Mr. Lehman
will have workmen begin on the repair
ing of the building. It is bis intention
to put the bnilding in first class condi
tion, and remove all traces of the ex
plosion. While the weather may be
against rapid work on the reconstruction
still it will be pushed to completion as
fast as men can do it, and when com
pleted it will be as good as when first
built. The present scarcity of hotel ac
comodations made all haste necessary,
and the hotel people are as anxious as the
public to again occupy the building.
On Friday evening, February 5, the
local Sons of Veterans camp will cele

being the one hundredth anniversary of
the birth of Lincoln, which marks the
date for Union Defenders' Day. Tbe
Grand Army of tbe Republic will join
with the Sons of Veterans inobserving
the day this year, and in addition to this
all eligible Sons of Veterans and their
families are invited to be present. An
excellent program has been prepared and
the camp is doing everything to make it
a pleasant evening for their guests.
There was an accidental shooting af
fair at Lindsay Sunday in which Nathan
Bordy. son of S. Bordy of this city, was
one of tbe principals. Mr Bordy was
playing with a small 22 calibre revolver,
and did sot know, it was loaded, when
in some way the revolver was discbared,
and the ball struck a Mr. Johnson of
Wahoo, who was standing near, tbe ball
entering near tbe ear and into the brain
rendering him unconscious. At present
tbe injured man is resting easy and
there is hopes of his recovery. Mr.
Bordy was almost frantic over the acci
dent. Monday the city marshall of
Lindsay placed him under arrest and be
was brought to this city and given a
hearing, when he was placed under a
$1,000, bond which he furnished.
