Everybody has either seen or heard of
"Little Johnny Jones," therefore the an
nouncement that this, the biggest musi
cal hit of last season, will be presented
in this city at the North Theatre, Satur
day, Nov. 18th conveys with it a deal of
pleasurable anticipation for our thea
tregoers. J'Little Johnny Jones" has
been called a musical melodrama, and
this title probably fits it better than
anything else, as it is a semi-sensational
play set to mnsic,and has the distinction
of being the only one of its kind that
has attained any marked degree of suc
cess. It was written by George V. Co
han, the author of "Forty-Five Minutes
From Broadway", "The Governor's
Sons", and "Running For Office." Mr.
C jhan is also the composer of the twenty-odd
musical numbers and haa person
ally staged the present production.
This attraction comes to us with the pres
tige of a metropolitan reputation hav
ing played ten different engagements in
New York already covering a period of
almost an entire year. It was also seen
for three months in Chicago, several
weeks in Boston, four weekB in Phila
delphia, and all the principal cities,
where it scored the greatest success of
any musical production seen in the past
dozen years. The production in a scen
ic way is a very large and massive one,
the three acts displaying beautiful and
realistic stage pictures, representing the
exterior of the Hotel Cecil in London,
the steamship pier at Southampton, Eng
land, and a street scene in the Chinese
quarter of San Francisco . The produc
tion is also said to- be very expensively
and beautifully gowned, the wardrobe
consisting of eleven complete changes,
and representing an investment of twen
ty thousand dollars. The company is
the largest on tour this season, number
ing seventy-five people and including
a chorus of forty, while the cast em
braces the names of many well-known
stage favorites. George Cohan, the
author, .has written many plays and
sketches, and composed many songs,
but attained his greatest reputation
when he gave the public "Little Johnny
Jones" which is spoken everywhere as a
musical play that has few if any equals.
The November term of district court
convened Monday of this week with
Jndge Thomas on the bench. The first
case to come to trial was the State vs.
Wm. Tykr and Ed Flynn, charged with
stabbing Louis Nordland. Before the
case came to trial Tyler plead guilty to:
the charge of assault with intent to kill,
but Flynn employed Charles Burke as
his attorney and stood trial. As Tyler
admitted doing the stabbing, Flynn
hoped for a lighter charge to be placed
against him. One of the main witnesses
was the man Finch, who they thought
they had when they got Nordland. The
Flynn case was given to the jury Tues
day evening, and before morning they
reached a verdict of guilty, the offense
being assault with intent to do great
bodily harm. Sentence has not been
passed on the two men. Wednesday
morning the Nicodemius case was up,
the hearing on an insanity charge hav
ing developed nothing, the commission
deciding that be was not insane. This
is the case where Nicodemius is charged
with incest, the victims being his daugh
ters. Since the charge was filed one of
his girls sent communications to the
local papers declaring that her father
was innocent.
After suffering for almost three weeks
from the accidental gunshot wound he
received while out hunting, Louis
Weinberger died at St. Mary's hospital
Monday evening, death being due to
blood poisoning, which had set in.
Louis Weinberger was a son of Mr. and
Mrs. Louis Weinberger of Madison, this
state, and was born there June 11, 1876.
There he made his home until about six
years ago, when he came'to this city and
was employed by James Nevels as bar
tender at the Palace saloon. Just prior
to his coming to this city he was married
and his wife and an adopted daughter
survive him. Funeral services were held
at the home on North Olive street at 3
p. m., Wednesday, and were conducted
by Rev. Roush, assisted by the Fratern
al Order of Eagles, of which the deceas
ed was a member, and he was taken to
Madison on the evening train where ser
vices will be held under the auspices of
the Sons of Herman, and he will be
buried at that place. His father and
mother and one sister, Mrs. August
Besk, were here to accompany his body
to Madison.
Dr. and Mrs. D. T. Martyn, jr., arrived
last Wednesday afternoon from their
wedding trip in Colorado, and all Colum
bus knew that there was something out
of the ordinary doing. At the train Dr.
Martyn was met by a number of his
friends at the train and an automobile
ride was at once commenced. His bride
was also taken in an auto driven by Mrs.
G. B. Speice. The two machines, the
first one containing an orchestra, whose
members were playing drums, cymbals
and various other musical instruments,
paraded the streets during the afternoon
until 4:30, when they reached their
home. The second part of the program
was a hay rack ride for Dr. and Mrs.
Martyn, and it completed one of the
most strenuous and cordial receptions
extended a newly married man in Colum
bus for some time, but it evidenced the
popularity of the newly wed doctor
among his many friends in the city.

What Postism Has Done.
That the republican party of Platte
county is in a disorganized condition, is
acknowledged even by those who are in
control of the party machinery.
Although Platte county is undoubt
edly democratic an occasional victory
has been pulled off by the republicans
when harmony prevailed. Garfield car
ried the county. True, that was years
ago, hut Platte county was democratic
at the time, the same as it is today,
although the population was not as great
or the majority as large. ,, In 1901, the
democratic majority was 955; in 1902,
747; in 1903, when Sullivan was a candi
date for supreme court judge against
Judge Barnes, the former carried the
county by 1032 majority. In 1904 the
republicans carried the county by 415
majority, and elected a float representa
tive and state senator; in 1905 the dem
ocrats had a majority of 206, and in 1906
Loomis defeated Reese by 665 majority.
In 1908 Judge Post succeeded in secur
ing control of the party machinery, and
the democratic majorities were increased
nearly two fold. In 1908 the democrats
carried the county by 1296 majority, and
this year by 1150 majority.
It is recalled that at the time the re
publican state convention met in 1908,
Governor Sheldon was assured that if
the delegates representing Post were
admitted to seats in the convention,;
Platte county would return a majority
for the republican ticket. The governor
was led to believe that republicans who
were not in harmony with Post had been
instrumental in keeping Platte county
in the democratic column. In order to
insure a republican victory in tuiB
county, the state convention admitted
the Post delegation, and by that act
turned over the republican organization
of the county to Judge Post. And what
was the result? When the votes were
counted on election day it was found
that Platte county had given 1296 major
ity for the democratic ticket the largest
in the history of the county, and this
year the republican vote was only 786,
nearly 600 less than last year. This is
what Postism has done for the republi-
caa party of Platte county. In the two
campaigns that Post has dominated the
republican party of Platte county he has
had everything bis own way. He named
the chairman of the county committee,
practically dictated, without opposition,
the policy adopted during the two cam
paigns, disbursed, through his chair
man, the campaign funds, and met with
two of the worst defeats ever banded out
to a political boss in Nebraska.
At present, the republicans of Platte
county are without a leader capable of
commanding the support of the party at
home or the respect of the party through
out the state, and until a change in the
party management takes place the
democratic majorities will continue to
After being honored by the republi
cans of Platte county and Nebraska, it
would seem that Jndge Post would hav6
at least a spark of gratitude left, to work
for the success of his party and the men
who worked for him when he needed
assistance in two state campaigns. Bat
selfishness appears to be the leading
trait In Judge Post's character.
Six years ago, when J. G. Keeder was
a candidate for district judge, Carl
Kramer was chairman of the republican
judiciary committee. If the writer is
not in error, Mr. Reeder carried or lost
the county by 5 votes. Mr. Reeder made
an able and impartial judge, and was
entitled to a re-nomination, but Judge
Poet, who has always been jealous of the
popularity of Mr. Reeder as a man and
his success at the bar, opposed him, and
sooner than enter into a disgraceful
scramble for a position whioh the major
ity of voters do not consider a partisan
one, Judge Reeder concluded not to
enter the race. The nomination went to
a lawyer of marked ability residing in
Merrick county, who was promised
Judge Poet's support in Platte county.
Platte county returned an overwhelming
majority against the Merrick county
candidate. And after election it devel
oped that the only work done for the
Merrick county man in this county was
contributed by the men who were oppos
ed by Post, among them Carl Kramer,
who has always been regular in the
support of his party candidates at the
To turn down Oarl Kramer now, 'and
recommend the man selected by Post for
postmaster, would add a few hundred
more votes to the democratic 'majority
in Platte county.
Post vs. Kramer.
"Carl Kramer shall not be re-appointed
postmaster," is the ultimatum issued
by Judge A. M. Post. It remains to be
seen whether the patrons of tho Colum
bus postoffice or Judge Poet will decide
this question. Judge Posfhas attempt
ed to make the patrons of the office be
lieve that his name attached to a petition
or letter, will be enough to secure the
endorsement of 8enator Brown for any
man he chooses to name. Within the
past few dayB two citizens of Columbus
have been approached by Judge Post
and asked to announce themselves as
candidates for postmaster, notwith
standing the fact that Judge Post had
practically assured W. A. McAllister of
bis support for the position now held by
Oarl Kramer. In asking others to enter
the contest, Judge Post has assured
them 'that Mr. McAllister cannot win
out; that he is a weak candidate, and it
another candidate cannot be induced to
enter the field Kramer will be re-appoint-
In his zeal to defeat Mr. Kramer,
Judge Post, appears to have ignored
the patrons of the Columbus office.
With Judge Post it is not a question of
who the patrons want, but who Judge
Post prefers. In turning down McAllis
ter, Judge Post has created discord in
the little bunch of fellows known as the
Blackstone Club, of which he assumes
to be the leader.
With McAllister out of the running,
and Post unable to induce any other
candidate to stand against Kramer, it
will be an easy matter for Senator
Brown to decide in making a recom
mendation. With the Commercial Club.
Besides listening to the proposition of
D. T. Garber of Peoria, 111., to establish
la steel tank factory in this city, the Com
mercial club had several other matters
up for discussion at the special meeting
Monday evening, the first being the Oma
ha cum show, which is held at a season
of the year that makes it detrimental
to all towns in Omaha territory. After
thoroughly discussing the matter, the
following resolutions were passed, and
then ordered printed and then sent to
the different commercial clubs of Nebras
ka, and also be distributed among the
Columbus merchants to send to the
Omaha wholesale houses they buy goods
Whereas, The influence of the retail
merchants and department store owners
in Omaha has caused the management
of the annual corn show to ignore the
protest of the country merchants against i
holding the show in the middle of the
holiday shopping season; and
Whereas, The fair inference is that
the selection of such a season for the
corn show was for the certain purpose
of drawing people from the interior of
the state to Omaha in the hope and be
lief that the visitors to the corn show
might be induced to make large holiday
purchases from the retail merchants and
department stores in that city; therefore
Resolved, That it is the sense of all
the retail merchants of Columbus,
speaking through their Commercial
club, that the holding of the annual
corn show duringthe holiday season is a
great injustice to the retail merchants
of the state outside of Omaha; that it is
a palpable effort on part of the Omaha
retailers to despoil the country mer
chants of a large share of holiday trade
to which they are justly entitled, and
which they would certainly receive, but
for the drawing of vast numbers of Ne
braska people to Omaha duringthe days
immediately preceding the Christmas
Resolved. That this olub desires to be
always 'on record in favor of any and all
efforts to improve agriculture in our
state, and to that end we heartily en
dorse the Omaha corn show, and urge
participation of our farmers therein.
We mean no attack upon the business
interests of Omaha, in which city our
merchants do the greater part of their
wholesale buying, but we do earnestly
protest sgainst the plan of the Omaha
interests to steal away from the country
merchants tbeir best opportunity to dis
pose of their wares at holiday time.
The new city hall proposition then
came up and the sentiment of the meet
ing was unanimously in favor of build
ing at least a $15,000 building, and some
were in favor of at least a $25,000 struc
ture. The councilmen present, Messrs.
Gass and Brunken, said that city fath
ers had not as yet decided on anything
regarding the building, but they bad
visited other towns so they could make
a report to the next meeting of that
body, and they wished to know how
the club felt regarding this matter.
An alleged discrimination of freight
rates in favor of Fremont will be investi
gated by a special committee.
The-independent telephone association
of Nebraska will meet in this city the
first of January, providing the necessary
hotel accomodations can be provided
and a committee will report on this to
the club.
The proposition of D. T. Garber of
Peoria, 111 , to put in a steel factory,
was the last to be taken up, but this
was what the meeting was called for.
After a few introductory remarks he
told the club what his company propos
ed to do and what they required for a
site, which they are asking the city of
Columbus to donate them for factory
purposes. He said bis factory would
hnntr t.hirtv nkillfid men with them and
would employ home labor, probably ten
men or more, according to the season.
He required a site location on the rail
road, not too far out. The meeting
seemed very favorable to his proposition
and a committee was appointed to look
up and arrange for a site, and report at
the Wednesday evening meeting.
