A petition was presented to the city
council last Friday evening, feigned by
all the property owners, asking that 1
street, between Fifteenth and Sixteenth
be vacated, and was referred to the
proper committee. The two bids for
printing before the council were dis
posed of by awarding the printing of the
ordinances to the Telegram and the
printing of the stationery to the Journal.
Chris Thompson wob appointed city
scavenger for the coming year. Two
reports of the committee on water works
were adopted and the recommendations
made will be carried out. The tirst
report waa regarding the proper drainage
of the pump pit, as at present there are
times when the water is several inches
deep on the lloor or the pit. and there is
danger of it getting deep enough to
cause the meter to burn oat, thereby
crippling the water service of the city.
The second recommendation was regard
ing the large meter that was placed at
the pumping station for the purpose of
measuring the water pumped by the
electric light company. On the recom
mendation of the engineer it was not
placed where the guarantee from the
manufacturers specified, and therefore
they were released from ull liability. In
its present location, the meter does not
record properly and it is practically use
less, and the city is without any reliable
data as to how much water the light
company is pumping. The cost of con
necting the meter properly will be about
$400 and the council will have this done.
Election of directors and officers for
coming year was the order of business at
the meeting of the Columbus Commer
cial club last Wednesday evening. Nine
directors were elected, two from each
ward and one to till the vacancy in the
Fourth ward, caused by the removal of
Henry Ragatz from the city. In the
First ward G. FrischholK was reelected,
and Paul Jaeggi succeeds Chaa. Segelkc,
in the Second ward Chas. Wurdeinan
was re elected and Issue brock succeeds
George Fairchild; O. C. Gray was re el
ected and Carl Kramer succeeds C. C.
Sheldon in the Third ward; Jerry Car
rig and S. B. Gregg succeed Julius
Nichols and It. L. Johnson was elected
to till the vacancy in the Fourth ward.
After the club adjourned the board of
directors held a meeting and selected
the following officers: G. Frischbolz.
president; C. O. Gray, Carl Kramer vice
presidents; G. W. Phillips, treasurer; A.
R Mil!er. secretary. A resolution was
passed by the board thanking President i
Karr and Secretary Kersenbrock for
their services on behalf of the olnb, and
President Karr made u brief speech re
viewing the work of the club during the
last year and expressing his appreciation
of the assistance rendered the officers by
the organization. liaising the dues in
order to provide a working capital was
one of the questions under discussion,
but no action was taken. It is probable
that another meeting of the club will be
called in the near future to discuss
matters of importance.
After a lingering illness, Miss Delia
Virginia Green died at the home of her
sister. Mrs. llichard Uainey, last Thurs
day morning. Her health has never
been the best, nnd pneumonia, followed
by tubercolosis, caused her death, and
the last few weeks her friends had given
up all hope of her ultimate recovery.
Miss Green was born at Evansville, Ind.,
March 0. 1802, and waa eighteen years of
age ut the time of her death. Ten
years ago she came to this city,
which has since been her home. Four
sisters and three brothers, Mrs. Richard
Katuey, Mrs. Boyd Dawson. Mrs. J. U.
Baldwin of Louisville. Ky., Mrs. L D
Borden of Denton. Texas, and B. B.
Green of Alma, Colo., Rev. C. O. Green
of Cnere. Texas, and A. A. Green of
Olathe, Kansas, survive her. Funeral
services were held Saturday at 10 a. ru.,
at the Barney home and were conducted
by Uev. Boush of the Methodist church
and burial was in the ColumbuB ceme
tery. A quiet wedding of two well known
Columbus young people was solemnized
Monday evening when Rev. Neamarker
of the German Reformed church united
in marriage Sophus C. Pederson and
Miss Anna Marty, both of this city. The
wedding was a surprise, even to the inti
mate friends of the couple, although it
was expected to occur at a later date.
Mr. Pederson made this city bis home
for some time, having been employed in
the shoe department of the Gray Mer
cantile company, and the bride is the
second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. E.
Marty of this city and has grown to
womanhood here, where she enjoys the
friendship of all her acquaintances.
After the ceremony they left for Norfolk
where Mr. Pederson, who is traveling for
a wholesale 6hoe house, makes bis head
quartets. Rather than stand trial in the district
court on the charge of stabbing Barney
McTaggart, John McGrath decided to
plead guilty and take his sentence. Ac
cordingly he made his desire known to
Judge Thomas, who held a short session
of court last Saturday and after McGrath
had plead guilty he was sentenced to
one year in the penitentiary. It is said
that when McGrath came to bis sober
senses after the cutting affray be realiz
ed what he had done and seemed sorry
because of his actions. Sheriff Lachnit

George Bloedorn returned Monday
from Rochester, Minnesota, where he
was operated on by the famous Mayo
Brothers for the injury to his knee,
which he suffered a year or so ago. The
operation was successful, for the pres
ent, and the surgeons hope that it will
be permanent, but he expects to return
to Rochester on July 1 for an examina
tion of the injury, and by that time they
will be able to determine whether anoth
er operation is necessary.
Bixby in his Daily Drift column of the
Lincoln State Journal, has the following
to say last Saturday regarding the post
mastership in this city: "If your Uncle
Leander were Senator from Nebraska
from the district north of the Platte
river, he would recommend Carl Kram
er for reappointment as postmaster of
Columbus, and that without waiting for
the aid or consent of anybody. When
the right thing to do is so apparent
why should one hesitate about doing it?
As a result of injuries received while
doing work in the Y. M. C. A. last
winter, Earl Kienzel, physical director,
was compelled to resign his position, and
the matter was presented to the board of
directors at their last meeting. As Mr.
Kienzel was injured while employed by
the association, the board, while accept
ing his resignation, continued his salary
until June 1 and also offered to bear
the expense of treatment, and the vaca
tion begins at once instead of June 1.
Should Mr. Kienzel's condition be such
that he can resume his work the boaru
desires that he shall do this and the posi
tion is held open for him.
Wet weather delayed the paving on
Olive street which is being put in by the
Union Pacific. Since the weather has
been favorable, however, the cement
footing has been put in the section north
of the tracks and the curbs for both the
streets and platform paving are also in
place. Brick for the work has arrived
and also the sand for covering the
cement. The contractors are working
all the men they can and will complete
the job in about another week. An
unused calvert. between Eleventh and
Twelfth streets, which the company put
in a number of years ago, bad to be re

Last week a business deal was closed
whereby Frank Rudat disposed of his
interest in the firm of Phillipps & Rudat
to his partner, II. A. Phillipps, ami the
firm is mwJ II. A. Phillipps Co. The
reason for the change is that the volume
of business was not sufficient to support
two members of the firm. Later in the
week Mr. Rudat, who bad been negotiat
ing for the purchase of the Carl Schubert
sporting goods house, closed the deal,
and with the completion of the invoice
took charge of the Schubert store. Mr.
Schubert who established this business a
number of years ago, desired to dispose
of it in order to take u trip to the Pacific
coast with a view nf locating.
At the meeting in the city ball prior
to the Platte river bridge bond election,
the matter of asking the government
for the temporary use of the pontoon
bridge stored at Fort Crook, was brought
up. Nothing, however, was done at
that time, but after the election was over
and the bridge assured J. S. Haney and
Jerry Carrig took up the pontoon mat
ter with Congressman Latta. After
several letters had been exchanged the
congressman wired for the length of the
bridge required, and in response two
thousand feet of pontoon waa asked for.
This request was turned over to the war
department, and they a9ked for informa
tion from the commanding officer at Fort
Leavenworth, Kane. A recent letter
from Congressman Latta nays that he
again called the attention of the war de
partment to the request for the pontoon
bridge, and was informed that as soon as
necessary information waa received from
Fort Leavenworth he would be advised.
From the tone of the letter received, the
prospects for securiug a temporary pon
toon bridge over the Platte are quite encouraging-

last night to offer a special short term

The "Mothers' Day" service at the Y.
M. C A. last Sunday was well attended.
The service was very appropriate. After
the song service with Mrs. Hoyt at the
niano. Drofessor I. H. Britcll read the
scripture lesson and litv. Steinbacb of
Plainview, Neb , offered prayer for
Mother and Motherhood. The musical
part of the program was exceptional.
"Has Mother's Prayer Been Answered?"
the solo sung by Otto Kumpf, was in
deed much appreciated And the selec
tion, "More Sweetly Than a Mother,"
rendered by the male quartet consisting
of Messrs. Putnam, Fred Scbmocker,
John Babcock and Arthur Wilson was
very commendable. The music, the
scripture and the prayer only lead up to
the magnificent address on "The Sacred
nees of Mother" given by Rev.Kousb, D.
D. Bev. Boush undoubtedly surpassed
himself in this address and it had a pro
found impression upon the audience.
The address was masterly in spiritual
quality and no one could go out from
the intluence or that sermon wunoui a
new lrorn determination to be a betUr
man for the sake of his Mother and bis
God. A very pleasant part of the pro
gram was that every person who came

Rudolph Jenny Killed.
The following from the Leigh World
tells of the tragic death of, Rudolph
Jenny, a prominent farmer of Sherman
township, Platte county:
Rudolph Jenny was the victim or a
terrible accident which occurred about
three o'clock; Tuesday afternoon, at the
Carl Barjenbruch corner one mile south
of the Leigh cemetery. In company
with his nephew, Bennie, eleven-year-old
son of Mell Jenny, he was bringing to
town a large llolstein bull, weighing
2,230 pounds, which was to be shipped
to Omaha thatevening. Mr. Jenny was
leading the animal and the boy was fol
lowing, driving it. At the Barjenbruch
corner the animal became weary and
uneasy from the long walk and made
several attempts to get away from it's
keepers. Mr. Jenny headed the animal
oh each time but finally it became so in
furiated that it attacked theold gentle
man,. knocking him to the ground and
crushing his chest by falling upon Mr.
Jenny with it's knees.
At this" juncture Bennie showed great
presence of mind and courage by seizing
the rope which was tied to the ring in
the animal's nose and jet king the animal
off his uncle's body. The beast then
turned upon the boy who dodged behind
a telephone pole and finally succeeded
in wrapping the rope about tue pole,
thus binding the mad animal fast.
Carl Barjenbruch witnessed the terrible-scene
but was unable to render as
sistance owing to the distance between
them. A physician was called at once
and the injured man was brought to
Leigh where he expired two hours later
in'Dr. Lowrey'e office.
Mr. Jenny was conscious almost to the
last and peacefully relapsed into the
eternal sleep which knows neilhor pain
Rndolph Jenny was horn in Switzer
land, January 20, 1853. At the age of
twenty years he came to America and
after spending a year in Wisconsin to
gether with his twin brother, Mell, lo
cated upon the Platte county farm, sev
en .miles south of town, which was hi"
home until his death. He was u mem
ber of the firm of Jenny Bros., who are
operating one of the largest dairy nnd
cheese farms in Nebraska.
Always industrious and frugal in his
habits and showing his regard for his
fellow men by bis honesty to them and
his loyalty to their interests, Mr. Jenny
was one of our first citizens, ono whose
intluence will live after bim and one who
bus had much 'to do with theiipbuildirTg
of our nation. There are left to mourn
this sudden death, foil1" brothers, Mell
and Daniel of Leigh, Caspar, who re
sides in Oregon nnd Henry, who has re
mained in Switzerland and ono sister.
