Last Wednesday evening a special
meeting or, the Commercial elub waa
held for the purpose of discussing the
proposition of Omaha parties to locate as
ovsralLfaetory in this city. A bonus is
not required in order to have the factory
located hare, all that is asked being aid
in securing suitable quarters, and the
names of not less than fifty young men
and women who will agree to work in
the factory. The wages offered will run
as high as $15 to 818 per week. This
week representatives of the company
will visit this city, and President Karr
appointed Sam Gass, jr., Edgar Howard,
G. Friachholz and R.8. Dickinson to aot
as a committee to look after the interests
of the city in the matter. Frank Keraea
brock was elected secretary of the club
to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of Gus G. Becher, who resigned
some time ago. A committee was also
selected to assist in securing chautauqua
grounds and also in the advance sale of
tickets for the occasion. The club will
tender a farewell reception and smoker
to Messrs. A. Anderson and H. Bagatz,
many years prominent business men of
this city, prior to their leaving for Cali
fornia. The club will assist in the en
tertainment of the state convention rural

Last Friday Chief of Polioe Sohack
received a telegram from Fremont ask
ing him to look out for a man who bad
stolen some articles from the proprietor
of an automobile garage in that city, and
shortly afterward he located his man
near the Union Pacific depot. It seems
the fellow, who gave his name as Arthur
Blohok of Cleveland, Ohio, had been
working a few days in the garage in
Fremont, and when a man with a car
bound west came along, asked for a ride.
When he left he took a suit case Con
taining a 835 suit of clothes, a pin valued
at 815, two pair of automobile gloves
worth $5 each, and other articles. The
stolen property waa recovered by the
chief and he turned it and "his prisoner
over to Sheriff Bauman of Dodge county,
who came up in an automobile. In
speaking of the arrest, Chief Schack
saya it is the quickest catch he ever
made, as in less than three hours after
he received word the prisoner was on his
way to Fremont.
A petition, whioh had been circulated
by Ex-Mayor Dtolansos, asking that the
city council appoint a committee to in
vestigate the prices charged by the elec
tric light company, waa presented to
that body at their meeting last Friday
evening, and referred to a com
mittee, composed of Sam Gass, A.
W. Clark, J. L. Brunken and G. E.
Willard. It seems that some of the elec
tric light patrons are not satisfied with
the rates charged, claiming they are not
in accordance with the promises made
at the time the franchise waa granted,
and it is understood that this petition
waa circulated for the purpose of bring
ing the matter before the council for an
airing. The patrons say they can show
where they are not treated justly, and
the light company insists that they are
giving the people all they agreed to.
The public will no doubt have a better
understanding of the terms of the fran
chise and the prices charged before the
matter is settled.
Sunday forenoon one of the Greeks
employed on the extra gang that is dis
tributing gravel balhst between this city
and Schuyler, fell off the work train and
was so badly injured that he died short
ly after being brought here. No one
seems to know just bow the accident
happened, the first the train crew knew
of it was the alarm given by bis fellow
workmen, and the train was brought to a
stop within a hundred feet. When the
train left here the Greeks were riding on
the flat cars, and some of them were
careless about their safety, and it is
supposed the injured man was one of
these, and fell from the car. When
found he was dragging in front of a
truck that had cut off one leg and badly
mangeled the other, and bruised bis body.
He was bandaged up as best they could
by his fellow workmen and train crew,
and on his arrival here taken to the hos
pital, but his injuries were such that he
died soon after reaching the hospital.

Last Thursday evening twenty-nine
members of the Masonic order gathered
at tan, home of Henry Rsgatz to tender
him a farewell reception before his leav
ing for California. Aa a token of regard
his friends presented him with a gold
headed cane, L. W. Snow making the pre
sentation in a few well ohoeen words.
Mr. Ragatz responded, and said that it
waa hard for him to leave tbe communi
ty where be haa resided for so long and
whose people he held iu such high es
teem. He also said that bis first year in
tbe weat wonld decide whether or not he
would return to Columbus, and he would
do so should the weetfsil to meet his ex
nsotationa 8traying away of two of tbe race
horses from this city, at tbe Grand
Island races Saturday night, is causing
their owners considerable uneasiness.
The horses were "Fred C," a trotter be
longing to Will Kauffman and "Denver
Dick, a pacer owned by Tom Branigan.
These two homes got out of their stalls
Saturday night and the only trace of
them was that they were seen east of
Grand Island,' probably making their
way to Columbus. It is supposed that
they will eventually reach this city, but
their owners do not like the idea of their
being able to feast on all tbe green stuff
to be found in the fields at present, after
living on a diet suitable for a race home.
The dissolution of tbe firm of Martin,
Evans & Ireland is announced thia
week, on the return of Dr. Martyn from
the weat. Dr. O. D. Evans succeeds the
old firm and retains tbe office building
on Platte street. So fsr no announce
ment further than this haa been made,
but it ia understood that another firm of
doctors, and possibly two, may be tbe re
sult of the change. All the parties in
terested intend to remain in this oity
and continue the practice of their pro
fession, the same as heretofore, except
the obange in the location of their offices, f
which they will announce later.
Already there are one hundred and
twenty-one entries for tbe races the last
of thia month, and from the fact that
thia number practically fills all the avail
able alalia at tbe race track, the manage
ment will no doubt have to construct
some additional ones, tbe same as laat
year. The popularity of tbe Columbus
races is growing, as those who attended
the Brat year returned a second time and
the number was increased by others who
attended for tbe first time Ami the
same' condition will be true this year, so
the races will be bigger and better than
Clarence W. Ilollenbeck and Miss
AnnaF. Strack, both of thi9 city, were
married in Omaha last Tuesday, tbe
ceremony being performed by the coun
ty judge of Douglas county Those
from here who were present at the wed
ding were Miss Rose Strack and John
Strack, brother and sister of the bride.
The bride ia a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Ed. Strack, and the groom is a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hollenbeok. After a
short visit with Omaha friends they will
go to Osbkosh, Neb., where the groom is
employed as a stationery engineer.
. Whether or not the carnival was re
sponsible for the heavy rainfall of the
first of the week, it is certain that there
was plenty of moisture, and some to
spare. Sundsy night the precipitation
was 1:75 inches snd for Monday night
2.25 inches, making a total of four inobes
of water in less than forty-eight hours.
Some of the farmers report considerable
damage to tbe small grain and delay
with the harvest. In the city tbe main
damage waa a number of Hooded cellars
some of them heretofore considered dry
in all kinds of weather.
Tuesday afternoon two attachments
against the carnival company were filed
in Judge O'Briens court by T. W. Adams
of tbe Olother hotel and H. E. Mussel
man of the Pacifio hotel. Tbe amount
of the two claims was less than $200 and
were for board and lodging of the mem
bera of tbe company. Sheriff Carrig
took charge of the show and closed it
down that afternoon. Later in the day
the matter was satisfactorily adjusted,
and tbe carnival waa doing business as
usual in tbe evening, being patronized
by good crowds.
Columbus made a splendid showing at
the Grand Island races last Saturday.
Out of the 9600 in purses $375 was taken
by two Columbus horses, $225 by Tom
Branigan and $150 by Jamea Howell.
These homes were entered in the trotting
snd paoing races, and it indicates that
thUfoity ia the home of some speedy
horses. From Grand Island they went
to Tskamah, but they will arrange their
campaign so that Columbus people can
see what they will do on their home
track during tbe races the last of- this
Miss Mabel Drawbaugb, daughter of

Laat Sunday morning the pastor of

He emphasized the thought that society
is what the citizens make it. The ser
