Ab the result of an encounter with
John McGrath, at the Union Pacific
depot Monday afternoon, Bernard Mc
Taggart is now at St Mary's hospital
with a had knife wonnd in his side. Mr.
McTaggart is janitor at the depot and it
is his duly to see that the bums do not
remain in the building, and it was while
doing this that he was cut by McGrath.
Some of those who know say that Mc
Grath has been hanging around the
depot since Friday and that be had been
put out of the waiting rooms once or
twice, which resulted in his being in an
ugly humor. When McTaggart told him
to leave the waiting room Monday after
noon he informed McGrath that the
next time he found bim in the building
he would call an officer and have him
taken to jail. This seemed to enrage
McGrath and he began to get ugly and
in the trouble that followed he stabbed
McTaggart, and also tried to cut bag
gageman Smith, who came to McTag
gart's rescue . A f ter the stabbing officer
Schack arrested McGrath and he was
lodged in the county jail, and given, a
hearing Tuesday afternoon. He offered
no defense and County Judge Ratter
man bound him over to the district
court, which commences next week,
fixing bis bond at $3,000. At the hear
ing he gave his name and said he was a
coal miner from Pennsylvania. The
officers think he is an old offender, as
his actions indicate that this is not the
first time he has been in the toils.
McTaggart did not rest well Monday
night and his condition is not as favor
able as could be expected. The knife
used by McGrath has a long blade, and
made a rather formidable weapon.
After a brief illness, Sidney O. Gray
passed away Thursday evening at his
home, Fifteenth and Quincy streets.
Mr. Gray, who was seventy years of age,
had suffered from poor health for some
time, and especially during the last two
years. His condition had not been such
as to cause his friends concern, until
Thursday, when it was evident that the
end was near. Sidney Calhoun Gray
was born at Otselic, Sbenango county.
New York, November 28, 1839, being of
Scotch ancestry and also related to John
C. Oalhoun. In early days, when that
section of the country was comparative
ly new and without railroads, Mr. Gray
moved to Bureau county, Illinois, and
engaged in the mercantile business.
For many years after and in fact the
greater part of his life, he had been en
gaged in this vocation. On March 7,
1861, he was married to Miss Rowena R.
Hanson, who with two sons, Clinton C.
and Arthur M survive him. In 1884
Mr. Gray moved with the family to this
county, where he had a large ranch
northwest of this city, and five years
later moved to Columbus and since then
was actively engaged in business, until a
few years ago, when on account of fail
ing health he was compelled to shift the
burden to other shoulders. Funeral
services were held at the home Sunday
afternoon and were conducted by Rev.
Dibble of the Congregational church, of
which the deceased was a member. A
brother, J. M. Gray, and a .sister. Mrs.
Lucy Prindle of Princeton, III., arrived
to attend the funeral.
After a week's illness with pneumonia
William Hudson Galley, third son of
Mr. and Mrs. J. II. Galley, died at his
home. Tenth and Kummer streets, Sun
day evening. Mr. Galley was born in
this city, October 1G, 1884. and has since
made ColumbiiB bis home. He attend
ed the public schools, and later went to
Spalding for a short time where he
managed a mercantile store for his fath
er. He then returned to Columbus and
on June SI, 1907, was married to Miss
Georgia Chatfield, who survives him.

On April St he was token sick and with
his wife came to this city, and since that
time his condition kept getting worse,
until he died. Besides his wife he leaves
his fttther and mother and four brothers,
Albert J., Earl and Clifford Galley of
this city and Walter Galley of St. Jos
eph, and Mrs. Mark Rathburn and Miss
Mauil Galley of this city. For the last
two years, and also at the time of his
death he was foreman of Hose Company
No. 2 of the Columbus Fire department.

ents, being conducted by Rev. W. L.
Dibble of the Congregational church

Last Thursday at high noon, at the
home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs.
H. A. Pneschel, the marriage of their
daughter. Miss Daisy Pneschel, to How
ard O. Fickes of Osbkosh, was solem
nized by Rev. D. I. Roush of the Meth
odist church. The wedding march was

bride and groom were attended by Miss
Mabel Pueschel, sister of the bride, and
Orvin Fickes, brother of the groom. A
fourcourse dinner followed the ceremony
and the young couple left on an after
noon train for Denver for a short honey
moon trip, and will be at home in Oah

Saturday the last teachers' meeting of
the year was held at Lindsay, and it was
quite successful, both in attendance and
enthusiasm shown. The program was
an excellent one and appreciated by the
teachers. A number of teachers from
this city, including Superintendent F.
S. Lecron were in attendance.
Hugh Hughes returned last Wednes-
i day evening from a winter's sojourn at
Los Angeles and other points on the
Pacific coast. He was at Los Angeles
the greater portion of the time and saw
many of the Columbus people now resi
dents of that city. The western climate
evidently agreed with Mr. Hughes, as
during his stay he gained in weight.
Freezing weather and snow and the
backward season during the last month
has been attributed by some to Ualley's
comet, but whether or not that body is
responsible, the fact remains that the
weather report for 1877, taken from the
station near the present town of Genoa,
shows similar conditions, as on April 29
and 30 the ground was frozen and that
there was a bard freeze nn May 4.
There was a family reunion at the J.
F. Belford home, just north of the city
Sunday, when for the first time in six
years all the children assembled around
the family table. Miss Josie came home
from Humphrey Saturday and returned
Sunday evening. John, who is a fire
man on the Union Pacific, with head
quarters at Council Bluffs, will be here
all of this week, and return to bis work
next Sunday, after another gathering of
the family on that day.
Paving Olive street from Eleventh to
Twelfth and also the platform at the
Union Pacific depot, was commenced
lost week This work on the street will
extend from intersection to intersection
on the street, and the paving for the
platform will extend from the south side
of the branch track to the north side of
the eaBtbound main line. An Omaha
firm has the contract and they are using
a paving brick from Buffalo, Kansas,
that is burned with natural gas. They
estimate that it will take at least two
weeks to complete the work.
Not one of tbe thousand fans who at
tended the ball game between tbe
Green's Indians and the Columbus team
expected to witness tbe close game that
was played. And both teams played
ball all through the game, and when the
tenth inning was concluded neither side
had scored. This was the best and fast
est game ever played on the home
grounds, and Columbus enthusiasts are
convinced that they have a very fast
bunch of players. The home team had
bnt one week to work ont in and were in
splendid form considering this. Tobey
and Chief was the battery for tbe Indians
andSindelar and Clair for Columbus.
Mrs. Margaret Caffrey, mother of Mrs.

much improved and he returns to this
city as well as usual.
Last Thursday the Columbus Game
and Fish Protective association liberated
ten pair of partridges on Bnck island,
and as this species is quite hardy and
prolific, they expect to soon have a good
start in this locality. The birds cost
the association $100, or $10 a pair laid
down here. The Mongolian pheasants.
liberated by the association some time
ago, are reported to be increasing, and
in one or two localities good sized flocks
Joseph Smith, formerly a resident of
Columbus, but who moved to Crete
about a year ago, died at his home in
that city last Wednesday evening. Four
years ago he suffered a stroke of paraly

five children, ami was a son of Mrs.
Mary Gisin, and a brother of John J.
Smith, and was also a cousin of Mia.

L.F. Phillippa returned last week
from Kansas City, where he purchased a
herd of 150 Angora goats, which be will
put on Buck island. For some time Mr.
Phillipps has been looking for means of
clearing tbe island of the underbrush,
and after careful investigation is confi
dent that the goats will solve tbe pro
blem for him, as their principal diet,
when they can get it, is brush and grass,
such as is found on tbe island. The
animals arrived last Saturday, and at
present. Mr. Phillipps has them at tbe
Burlington stock yards, bnt hopes to get
them to the island Saturday or Sunday.
In addition to the goats he will put cat
tle and sheep on the island, and blue
grass and clover for pasture. A num
ber of buildings will be built there and
in a few years Mr. Phillippa will have
quite a ranch.

Sunday base ball was up for discus
biod last Friday evening, at a meeting
held in the Congregational church. For
some limn the question had been talked
of, and the meeting was called to find
out what public sentiment wan. The
meeting was a representative one, being
attended by both those who favored
Sunday ball and those who were againBt
it. One of the main questions was as to
how tbe management proposed to con
duct the games and those representing
tbe ball association assured tbe meeting
that nothing but orderly crowds and
clean ball would be tolerated. The
crowds can be handled properly, and
this will be done, and with all bad fea
tures eliminated, Columbus will have
Sunda ball that no one can criticize.

State Commercial Clubs,
Thursday of last week the state Com
mercial clubs concluded their annual
meeting in this city. The forenoon ses
sion was taken up with routine business
and tbe program, but the afternoon
session was quite interesting on account
of tbe fight for tbe location of the next
convention. During Wednesday night
the delegates from Kearney, which town
was asking for tbe next meeting, pnt up
five thousand placards, bearing the in
scription. "Kearney Next." The com
mittee appointed to select the next place
of meeting reported in favor of Lincoln,
but this did not discourage tbe Kearney
boosters. They went on to tbe floor of
the convention and finally landed the
meeting, but not without a hard fight.
Norfolk was also in evidence, the del

an extra coach on the passenger, and
they chartered a special train to take
them home after the bacqueL
