Columbus people were very much sur
prised to learn of the arrest of Dr. and
Mrs. L. B. Doxey last Monday evening
on a charge of adultery, which had been
filed by Miss Kate Erder, who, with her
mother bad arrived from St, Louis that
day. After the arrest Dr. and Mrs.
Doxey were held as prisoners at the
Meridian hotel under the charge of Con
stable Ed Bossiter, when they were
taken before Police Judge O'Brien Tues
day morning and released on $500 bonds,
until their hearing Thursday of this
week. Miss Erder and her mother
charge that Mrs. Doxey married Miss
Erder's brother, Wm. J. Erder, at Clay
ton, Missouri, on April 19, 1909, snd
lived with him in St. Louis until the
first part of June, this year, when she
returned to Columbus and lived with
Dr. Doxey until the latter part of the
same month. She again returned to St.
Louis Mnd hvfd with Mr. Erder lor a
few weeks, when he was taken sick and
died in a few data, Mrs. Doxey then
settled up his affairs and collected his
life insurance and returned to Columbus
and again lived with Or. Doxey. Mrs.
Doxey, however, denies that she was
ever married to Mr. Erder and says she
is the wife of Dr Doxey to whom she
was married in August, 1906, and pro
duces a marriage certificate to prove her
assertion. Since the matter has been
looked into it hss been learned that
Mrs. Doxey, at different times, hss gone
under six or seven different names in
various places. Dr. Doxey first came to
Columbus last April, and was on his way
to Ericson, this state, but after going
there and looking over the field decided
to return to Columbus, which he did,
opening up an offiae in the German
National bank building early in May.
In order to show the splendid re
sources of a district along the Great
Northern line in Montana, eleven com
mercial clubs of that state collected an
excellent display of grains and fruits
from that locality for an exhibition car,
which was in Columbus all day last
Wednesday. The car, which is in charge
of two men, being taken over the Bur
lington lines and left Montana about a
month ago, is being taken over the Bur
lington lines free of charge, the company
donating the transportation as their
portion toward showing what that sec
tion of the northwest can produce. It
was an interesting exhibit, and before
the car finishes its mission, will have
visited many principal towns in Ne
braska, Kansas and Iowa, making a stop
of a day at each place. This is done to
advertise a portion of Montana that is
yet open to homesteads, and which the
government will not advertise, in the
hope of including prospective settlers to
Wm. Hollingahead of Monroe, and one
of the early settlers in that locality,
died Monday, death being due to old age.
He came to Nebraska is the seventies
and located about a mile northwest of
Monroe, and about seventeen years ago
moved into the village, which he has
since made his home. He was a veteran
of the civil war, having served in a Wis
consin regiment. Besides his aged wife
he leaves five bods, Jesse Hollingshead
of Chioago, Milt and A. N. Hollingshead
of Ganade, Tex., J. H. Hollingshead of
Arcadia and O. W. Hollingshead of
Monroe, and one daughter, Mrs. D. W.
Jenkineon of Monroe. Funeral services
were held at Monroe Wednesday morn
ing at 10 o'clock, being conducted by
the Methodist pat tor.
Columbus will have another jewelry
store, making four in all, snd it will be
located on Thirteenth street. Edw. D.
Fitzpatrick, who has been an expert in
this line has decided that Columbus will
be f bout as good a town as there is in
the state for such an opening, and left
Monday afternoon for Chicago to pur
chase his opening stock. He is having
the east side of the Fitzpatrick dry
goods store arranged for his jewelry de
partment, and expects to have as up-to-date
a Btore as there is in the state.
And anotherof the improvements in this
locality for the near future is a new and
modern front, for this building, and also
for Dack's drug store and the L. W.
Snow building, owned by Mr. Arnold
In compliance with election law re
garding expenses daring the campaign,
the expense accounts have been filed by
the county candidates. The democrats
had but one contest, that of sheriff, and
it cost Henry Lschnit $17.65 to secure
his election certificate. Treasurer Held,
Judge Ratterman and County Clerk
Graf bad no opposition, but they never
theless donated $25 each to the county
committee. Superintendent Lecron,
who had no opposition also donated $25
to the committee and in addition paid
oat $5 for livery hire. The successful
candidates. Coroner Gass and Surveyor
Roseiter did not find it necessary to ex
pend any money daring the campaign.
Edward Arthur Miner, formerly of
Columbus, and Mable Irene Davis of
Council Bluffs were united in marriage
Wednesday at high noon, November 10,
1909, at the home of the bride, by Rev
James W. Williams pastor of the Meth
odist church. Just the immediate friends
and relatives of the families were pres
ent. The young couple took a short
trip to this city, visiting among old
friends. Mr. Miner is a traveling sales
nan for News company. They will go
to housekeeping at once in their home at

at this term of distriot court on a charge
of kidnapping, will wait until the next
term of court. At present the parents
of the Broviak girl are adverse to prose

chance that the case may be dropped al
together. Noell is out on $1,000 bonds
and is at present at Papillion. The re
mainder of the criminal cases for this
term of court have been disposed of,
the Beckwith larceny case, which was
up last Saturday resulting in a verdict

Twelve years ago the present Colum
bus City band was organized, and for
some time the boys have been planning
to celebrate the event. Mondsy night
November 15 was the date selected for
the occasion, and the boys invited all
former members of tbe organization, to
gether with President Earr and Secre
tary Frank Kersenbrock of the Commer
cial club to be present. The band boys
and their guests numbered twenty-five
or thirty and the evsning was n joyably
passed at the band hall, short talks by
those present and good things to eat
drink and cigars constituted the pro
gram. Twelve years is quite awile for an
organization of this kind to hold togeth
er and the boys arc quite proud of this
and hope and expect to Lold other re
unions of this kind in the future.
Last Sunday the Commercial club
committee, accompanied by D. T. Gar
ber, looked over the various sites offered
to the latter for the steel tank factory.
Three sites were offered, any one of
which will be acceptable to Mr. Gsrber,
they being all desirable locations.
While the price for these sites is a little
more than the club anticipated, they
will endeavor to raise the money neces
sary for the purchsse of one and be pre
pared to complete arrangements for the
building of the factory. It is under
stood that the site will be given with a
provision that it shall be used for fac
tory purposes only, and in case it is not,
will revert to tbe donors.
Last Saturday thirty-eight boys were
canvasing the city for funds to assist in
the entertainment of the Y. M. C. A.
Boys' convention, which is to be held in
this city the first week in December.
One hundred dollars wss tbe amount to
be rsised,and a number of older members
said it would be impossible for them to
secute that amount. Bat the boys were
organized into companies under captains
and they went to work with a will, and
before six o'clock over $103 had been
collected. And the boys do not believe
that No. 13 is unlucky, for Saturday
was tbe thirteenth of November.
Superintendent Wm. O'Brien, of the
state fish hatcheries at South Bend, was

and sun fish in the Stevens, Outer and
Way ponds. 8ince the organization of
the Fish and Game Protective associa
tion in this city, Superintendent O'Brien
has been taking great interest in it, with
the result that this locality has been
taken care of in the distribution of fish
in a very satisfactory manner.
Monday morning the screens and all
obstruction, such as plants, pictures,
etc, in front of the bars in the
Columbus saloons, were removed.
This wss in compliance with a notice
isstfed by Mayor Held, calling their at
tention to the statute regarding this.
Some of the saloon keepers complied
with tbe order before it was officially
issued, as it wss known that such a step
would be taken. This action of the
mayor was promoted by a notice received
by him from the W. C. T. XL, regarding
the matter, and in compliance with this
the order was issued.

mittee, of whioh Paul Becker is chair
man, will begin to look up places of
entertainment for the 150 or 175 boys
and speakers who are expected. All of
this work will be handled through boys'

been received that E. M. Robinson,
senior secretary of the boys' work com
mittee of the international committee
will be present at our boys' state con
vention. We are very fortunate in
securing this man for he holds the high
est position in the boys department in
It was announced last week that tbe
boys of the Y. M. C. A. would raise
$10000 Saturday for tbe state con
vention. Well they did it. A big clock
was set in front of the Y. M. C. A. to reg
ister the money as it was returned.
The boys were divided into five tesms.
Howard Waley, James Colton, Everett
Weloh, Lloyd Cassin and Walter Nau
man were captains. Each team was
supposed to raise $20.00. A large score
board waa hung in the Y. M. C. A. lob
by just above the receiving secretary's
desk. One dollar returned wss counted
one score and marked to the credit of tbe
team which returned it. The object
was to see which team could get its 20
scores first. At 9 a. m. about thirty
boys sesembled in tbe meeting room and
after singing a few hymns and prayer,
they received their final instructions.
Each fellow got tbe names of the peo
ple he waa to see, a pad of receipts and
struck out to get the money. Within
thirty minutes tbe big clock hand had
began to move and at one o'clock it
psssed the 45 dollsr mark. The high
school team of which Whaley was cap
tain had already won the contest and
the fight for second between the other
teams was growing pretty warm. It was
a bad afternoon but the boys did some
brave hustling and the big clock hand
moved steadily around toward 100 dol
lars, while the contest for second nar
rowed down to a struggle between
Welch's team and Cassin's team. These
fellows proved themselves to be real
pushers while the fellows on all the
teams kept working hard all afternoon
and deserve credit for making the cam
paign a big success. The campaign be
gan at 11:00 a. m. and wss closed at 5:40
p. m. Tbe amount raised in that time
was $103.75. Whaley's high school tesm
deserves a great deal of credit for tbe
way they pushed this financial campaign
This bunch raised almost one third of
the whole amount. The amounts raised
by teams: Howard Whaley's team $31.
50, James Cotton's tesm, $14 55, Everet
Welch's $25.05. Lloyd Cassin's. $25.05.
Walter Nsumsn's $860. The members
of tbe winning team were appointed de
legates to the state convention and to
gether with the captains of the other
tesms had an oyster supper at the Home
Restaurant Monday evening.
