Business Men's Club of the Y. M. C. A.
was held Tuesday evening at tbe build-
in ir. about eighty being present. Carl
Kramer acted as tonstmuster and short
addresses were made by C. O. Sheldon
and E. .1. Niewohner. Mr. White, for
eign secretary of the Y. M. C. A., located
at Burmah, India, was also present and
gave an interesting talk on the foreign
work of the association. Tuesday even

It is the misfortune of any great suc
cess, that unscrupulous persons attempt
to trade on its reputation. Such is tbe
case with The Holy City. Certain
movinu picture operators, in various
pirts of the country have been present
ing pictures of the Passion Play and de
ceiving the public by advertizing it as
The Holy City. Thus tbe public, ex
pecting to see this great play, have
found the exhibition only a moving
picture show, and hence were disappoint
ed, and many of tbe less informed have
gone away with tbe impression that this
disappointing 'swindle was the original
Holy City. This ib a grave mistake and
a great injustice to one of .the finest
plays ever written. The Holy City is a
powerful drama, in four acts, presented
with a cast of excellent actors, wearing
tbe most elaborate and beautiful cos
turns and presenting the great play
with a full equipment of splendid scen
ery. It is not a stereopticon or magic
lantern show; but a tine play, a drama,
given on a regular theatre stage, with
all the characters played by living men
and women. At North Theatre Friday,

Quite a numhsr of promoters hnve en
deavored to build a north and south
railroad through thia state, but so far
none have materialized. But there is a
possibility that some day such a line
will be built in fact, in recent years the
.project has been seriously considered on
several occasions. But the following
from the Norfolk Daily News would in
dicate that actual work on suchTa line is
to begin next month and Columbus is to
beone of the towns through which the
proposed road will bd built: The Yank
ton, Norfolk fc Southern railroad, now
being actively promoted, is to parallel
tbe Union Pacific from Norfolk to Co
lumbus, where it will cross the Platte.
The road will then extend southwest to
York, reaching Hastings with a short
spur. It will enter Kansas at Smith
Center and will follow tbe tier of counties
to the south to tbe Oklahoma line, pas
sing through tbe county beats. From
Oklahoma it will pass through Wichita
Falls, Texas, to Cisco, Brownville and
Austin and thence east to Galveston
Unlike Fremont Hill's proposed Yank
ton Southern road, the Yankton, Nor
folk & Southern will not pass through
Wichita, Kan., but will go fifty miles
west of that city. The projected line to
the gulf is 1,200 miles long. Tbe air line
from Galveston to Yankton is 900 miles.
While for the present at least operations
will be carried ou from Yankton accord
ing to tin: charter of the new road the
general office of the company has to be
located in Yankton. Norfolk, Columbus
and York are tbe principal Nebraska
cities through which the road is slated
to pass. Tbe company, it is annonnced
in Yankton, is in tbe hands of W. P.
Dickinson & Company of Chicago, who
are financing tbe road and who have
built tbe southern division of which 105
miles are in operation. It is said that
while Mr. Graham is still at the bead of
the Norfolk, Yanton & Southern, a
change of officers will take place within
a week. Work on tbe bridge at Yank
ton is to begin by March 9. A tempor
ary bridge is first to be thrown over tbe
river to reach the gravel. The perma
nent bridge is to be forty-one feet wide,
with a double railroad track, two wagon
tracks and two footbridges. It will cost
according to tbe promoters, $1,000,000.

In compliance with tbe action of the
council at their last meeting, two hun
dred copies of the ordinance vacating
twenty feet on the east side of O.ive
street for the use of the Union Pacific,
were printed and distributed. At tbe
head of tbe ordianance was a call for a
citizens' meeting to be held in the coun
cil chamber Monday evening, and it was
in response to this cull that about sixty
of the representative business men of the
city met at the city ball on that date.
The meeting was called to order by
Mayor Phillips, and Henry Ragatz was
chosen chairman with Daniel Schramas
secretary. Attorney Cornelius, who
drew up tbe proposed ordinanoe, was
tbe first speaker, and he explained the
various provisions of tbe ordinance. H.
A. Clarke started tbe discussion by
bringing up tbe point as to the time
tracks could obstruct the street, under
tbe provisions of tbe ordinance, and
favored inserting a clause limiting tbe
time to a few minutes before tbe arrival
and departure of trains. There were a
number who supported tbe ordinanoe in
its present form and there were also
those who opposed it quite strenuously,
claiming that it would eventually close
the street. Just before tbe close of the
meeting a resolution was introduced to
ascertain bow tbe meeting stood on tbe
question, and tbe vote finally takeu was
35 for to 20 against. Some of those
opposed to the ordinance claimed this
did jot fnirly represent the sentiment.
On Friday night tbe ordinance will come
up for final action, and in the meantime
those interested in tbe matter, eitber for
or against, are seeing to it that tbe coun
cilmen in the various wards thoroughly
understand tbe opinion in tbe matter of
those they represent.
After suffering for almost a year as a
result of ruptured blood vessel, which

morning. "Doc" Smith, as be was uni
versally known to his friends, was born
at Elmira, New York, June 1854. bis
father being a Baptist minister. In 1860
he removed with the family to Ottawa,
111 , and in 1867 to Afton, la. Here he
resided until nineteen years of age when
he began bis railroad career with the
Burlington at Creston. la., in 1871. In
1876 he quit the service of tbe Burling
ton and went to tbe Santa Fe with which
company he heldthe position of yard
master at two of the principal yards on
the system for eleven years. In 188:: he
resigned bis position with the Santa Fe
and came to tbe Union Pacific, locating
at Council Bluffs, since which time he
has been constantly in tbe employ of
the company as eitber conductor or yard
master. He was transferred to Colum
bus in 1896 and has since made this his
home In 1881 he was married to Mary
J. Madden at Creston, In., who with
three sons. Frank F. of Rawlins, Wyo.,

Tuesday morning from St. Bonaven
tur's church. Father Marcellinus officiat
ing and burial was in the Catholic ceme
tery. Last year the members of Engine
Company No. 1 concluded to have a
smoker and invite all tbe honorary and
active members of tbe company. And
so well did they carry out their plans
that the smoker was at once made an an
nual affair. Last Wednesday evening
the second smoker was given by the com
pany at Maennerchor ball and it was, if
anything, a more enjoyable affair than
tbe first one. Besides the refreshments
and cigars an orchestra of fifteen mem
bers, composed of either active or honor
ary members- of tbe Engine Company,
furnished some excellent music. After
tbe banquet was served there were short
talks, Sam Gass acting as toast master.
There were two out of town members of
the compauy present, Gus Locker of
Omaha and Mort Murphy of Seward,
and the former who was a charter mem
ber of tbe company, to'd of fighting
fires in early days.. Short talks were al
so made by Fred Frischolz, Earl Galley,
Louis Schwarz, C. G. flickok, Bert
Galley and President M. D. Karr of the
Commercial club. Mr. Karr spoke in
behalf of the business men of Columbus
and voiced their appreciation of the
efficient work of the firemen in protect
ing the property of the city and invited
the members of the fire department to
join the Commercial club witboutcostto
them. Bert Galley, chief of the depart
ment, complimented the company on
their good work whenever tbey were
needed. The committees who had charge
of the smoker worked bard to make it a
success, and tbey succeeded admirably

There is always some reason for suc
cess. In this ace of commercialism,
everything must have some real merit in
it to be a lastiDg success. Anything
must be worth one's time and money, or
tbe public will soon relegate it to tbe
rubbish pile. This is as true of plays as
of everything else. They mnat be real,
sterling, sound and solid value to hare
a long continued success. The ever
growing triumph of Clarence Bennett's
"The Holy City" tells its own story of
the triumph of real merit and true
worth "One of tbe few, tbe immortal
plays that were not born to die!" Mr.
