Files of the Journal April IS, 1S77.
From every quarter section of Nebras
kii comes the report that an unusual
amount of grain has been. 'own. If the
war in Europe continues we may reason
ably hope to get a good price for what
we raise.
The road supervisors of liutler county
were to meet on Saturday last to devise
wajti and means for carrying out the law
passed this winter authorizing them to
work their "force" on grasshoppers.
We hope that their combined wisdom
may evolve from some hidden recess
where it is doubtless stored, the knowl
edge of the way to destroy the winged
peats.
There is no doubt that every material
interest rests primarily upon the agri
cultural community. On his broad
shoulders the farmer enrrica the urtisan,
the trader and the professional man.
What helps liim. helps them; what
harms hnn, haitus them, but in greater
degree. In many, indeed lnmostthings,
their interests are mutual, and he is
merely a mischief maker who endeavors
to array one class againfit another. The
farmer is willing to carry a decent sized
load, hut don't like to gee those who live
upon him surfeited, pampered to inso
lence, and the honest tradesman, while
lie is ready at all times to turn a nimble
ipeiue, is desirous of seeing his farmer
customer prosper, and will not stick him
with had goods or high prices.

On Thursday, April 14, at the North
theatie Charles B. Hanford will appear
in a modern comedy, "The American
Lord," by George H. Broadharst and
Charles T. Dazey, two representative
American playrights. The departure of
Mr. Hanford from the classics for a sea
son cannot fail to interest, for he has
stood almost alone for several years as a
representative actor of the Shakes
pearean drama. It is bat natural that
his ambitions should lead him into the
field of the modern thereby putting his
versatility to the test, and that he has
succeeded can be amply attested to by
tLc exceedingly favorable comment his
production of the play has earned.
"The American Lord" is divided into
four acts, the opening scene being laid
in UrueBter's Hotel in Blkhorn, North
Dakota. Bluff John Bruester is typical
of the great west. He is honest, strai
ghtforward and candid and detests shams
and snobbishness. When the play opens
there is a convention in town to nomin
ate a candidate for congress. A nomi
nation in Elkhorn ib equivalent to an
election. "Beforc-the-Draw-Fete" and
"Texas," two of Brucater's friends, mean
to stampede the convention for him. In
the meantime an English lawyer arrives
and notifies Bruester that he is the lineal
descendent of Lord Bruester. The af
fair is a joke to Bruester, but the lawyer
who has been in the United States for
several weeks for the purpose of finding
the heir to the title and estates convin
ces Bruester, for he acknowledges that
his people came from England and set
tled in Virginia and then scattered. On
being told that he will not be hampered
in the management of his estates, he pro
mises to go to England and it may be
imagined in his breezy way he niunnges
to stir up things. He becomes embroil
ed in an old family feud and finds his
little girl madly in love with a young
man who iu time is to have a title to his
name, and then there is his son making
eyes and losing sleep over a pretty Eng
lish girl. To cap the climax Bruester
himself becomes enamored with an at
tractive widow. The .settling of the var
ious love affairs furnishes many nmusing
complications while Mr. Hanford as
John liruester succeeds in furnishing
his many admirers nn opportunity of
witnessing his success in a modern-up-lo-dato
comedy. Miss Marie Drofnah
has in the rolo of Mrs. Westbrooke, the
widow in the play, opportunities which
cannot fail to gratify the many playgoers
who have followed her successful imper
sonations in the classics. The produc
tion will be both complete and elaborate
and the cast one of excellence through
out. Headquarters for the reunion and con
vention of the United Spanish American
war veterans, Department of Nebraska,
which will be held in this city April 25,
2ti, will be at the Meridian hotel. The
council of ndminstration will hold a
meeting :it the hotel Monday evening,
and Tuesday at ID a. m. the delegates
to the convention will meet nt the Meri
dian hotel parlor. At this meeting
routine business will lo transacted,
which will include the election of de
partment ollicers. At 1 p. .n., the re
union of the Spanish-American war ve
terans will be held in IheEagel hall, and
nt fi p. iu. a banquet to the visiting vet
erans will be served at the Mannerchor
hall by the ladies of St. Anne's guild of
the Catholic church. Besides the Spanish-American
soldiers who will attend
the banquet, the local grand Army post,
and officers of the Sons of Veterans
camp, and their wives have been invited.
After the banquet a public dance will
be given at the Orpheus hall. Depart
ment Commander Phelps of Schuyler,
who has charge of securing the speak
ers, was in tne ciiy last weeK. unt as
yet could make no definite announce
ment as to who would be here. Sever
al invitations have been sent to speakers
and by next week it will be definitely
known who will be here. Iu addition to
thepe speakers the G. A B. and Sons of
VeteranB have each been asked to pro
vide one speaker for the banquet. The
local committee in charge of the reunion
have been working hard to make this,
the second reunion, one of the best for
years to come.
A deal was closed last week that re
sulted in B. S. Dickinson purchasing the
plant of the Columbus Brick Co., and ho
is now the sole owner. Last year the
Karr-Xichols Co. sold oat to the Colum
bus Brick Co. but retained an interest in
the enterprise. But now Mr. Dickinson
has control of the entire plant, and it is
understood that he will install new
machinery and make a number of im
provements before the brick making
season begins Mr. Karr, it is under
stood, will remain in the city and engage

Otto Koop, a resident of Woodvllle
township, four miles east of St. Edward,
has been terrorizing the neighborhood
and Tuesday deputy sheriff Mark Burke
brought him to this city where he will
have a hearing before the board of insan
ity. Koop is a bachelor and for some
time he has been acting rather strange,
and finally refused to allow anyone to
come on to the place, guarding the house
with a loaded shot gun. Mr. Burke suc
ceeded in getting him to this city with
out any trouble, and it is quite probable
that after his hearing he will be commit
ted to the Norfolk asylum.

Columbus, Nebraska
With the Base Ball Fans.
Manager Joe Dolan of the Columbus
base ball team came up from Omaha
Tuesday for a meeting with the directors
of the club Practically all the details
have been looked after, and everything is
in readiness for opening of the season.
Wednesday morning Manager Dolan
inspected the grounds south of the Union
Pacific coal sheds, and gave instructions
regarding the improvements to be mada
It is quite probable that the north and
west sides of the grounds will not be
fenced, as the expense will be large, but
will be policed daring the games, thua
forcing those who attempt to witness
the games without paying to come into
the grounds. This free spectator prob
lem was really the only objection to the
grounds, nnd with this eliminated, the
location is very good, being close to the
city, so that it will not be necessary to
provide transportation to and from them.
Columbus now has three of the beat
twirlers in the state league, as at the
meeting the board signed Bovee and
Sindelar, from the Omaha team, and
with Kissell, make a splendid trio for
box work.
Twelve men have been signed up to
report on 'April 25, when the practice
and trying out will begin. The line-up
so far is as follows: E. A. Glair, Harry
T. Kemp, catchers; Bovee, Sindelar and
Kissell, pitchers; Ward W. Cooper, short
stop; E. F. Brown, Becond base; W. T.
Melum. third base; Ned Tighe. Gail
Richardson and Roy Chittick, outfield.
Manager Dolan returned to Omaha Wed
nesday afternoon nnd expects to sign
another man for the infield, who Uvea in
that city. This line-up does not include
a number of players whom the manage
ment have secured for a try out, and it is
possible that one or two of the outsiders
may make a good enough showing to
secure a place on the team.
Practice games and trying out will be
gin April 25 nnd continue until opening
of tho eenson, and it is probablo that a
few practice games with other teama in
the league will le played, but there i no
prospect of any gtiues with Western
league clubs, its their season opens up
before the practice .season for the State
league begins.
Columbus fans nre assured that good
hall will he played by their team this
summer, nnd if they do not land the pen
nant, the showing made will be such
that Columbus will be proud of it.
