Axel Nelson nnd his wife have present
ed the city council with a claim of $2,261
against the city for injuries sustained
by Mrs. Nelson on account of falling od
a tlcfective sidewalk, and medical at
lentions during the time she was suffer
ing from the injuries, and the matter
was referred to the city attorney. There
were two bids for the construction of
cement crossings for the coming year,
eubinittod by Jacob Glur and McCord
A: Johnson, and the contract was award
ed to tho former. The request of the
Union Pacific railroad to lay a main
across Eleventh street to the power
house of the Columbus Light, Heat &
Power company, so they could get water
from them, was turned down, and the
committee reported that a warning had
been served on both the railroad and
electric light company not to construct
the main. The city objects to the rail
road company purchasing water from
the light company when they are sell
ing water, unit would like to supply the
the railroad company. It is quite pro
bable that nn ordinance will be passed
requiring mai a uuiiumg permit uo do
cured before the construction of any
building be commenced. This will en
able the city to exercise a stricter sup
ervison over structures built within the
tire limit. Dnssell .v. Son were paid the
balance on the new wells, $804.11. and
the engineer, John Martz, allowed 820
for his servies in accepting them. All
city water mains and service pipes will
hereafter be laid in a uniform manner
four feet from the curb line. The city
is now advertising for the sale of the
$25,000 Platte river bridge bonds, re
cently voted. The petition for the re
moval of the lumber yard, south of the
Union Pncitic depot, is still in the hands
of the judiciary committee, but report
is expected soon.
After an illness of two months, Mrs.
Robert Pinson, wife of Postmaster Pin
son of Platte Center, died at her home
Monday morning, aged 77 years. Mrs.
Pinson was born in Ely, Cambridgeshire,
England, December 28, IS!. Here she
grew to womanhood and moved to Nor
wich and later to Saxlborpe, England,
where hhe met her husband, Robert Pin
son, and they were married at Norwich,
England, September 1865. In 1870 they
crossed the ocean and came to America
and direct to Platte county, where they
took up a homestead in Lost Creek town
ship, which has since been their home.
In 1S80, when Mr. Pinson was first ap
pointed postmaster at Platte
they moved to that town, but again
resided on the old homestead for four
years. In 1897 they again moved to
Platte Center, which has since been their
home. Mrs. Pinson was a sister of the
late John Eusden of this city. Besides
her husband she leaves one daughter.
Jennie, wire of Willard Obapin of Walla
Walla, Washington, and one son. T. J .
E Pinson, who lives on the old home
stead m host Greek township. Mrs.
Pinson was a member of the Methodist
church. The funeral services, which
were held Tuesday at the home in Platte
Center, were conducted by He v. D. I.
Roush of this city, and she was brought
here on the Norfolk passenger for burial
in the Columbus cemetery.
Monday , evening the Nebraska Fish
commission car "Antelope" arrived in
this city on u trip from Lincoln. The
car was in charge of Deputy Fish Com
missioner O'Brien and besides the lish
distributed between this city and Lin
coln, he had '20,000 young bass for dis
tribution in this locality, and quite a
number for shipment to Fullerton, St.
Paul and Rig Springs. Those distribut
ed here were allotted under the supervi
sion of the Columbus Fish, Game and
Protective association, which has done
much toward restocking this locality
with game and lish. Mr. O'Brien re
ceived several encouraging reports re
garding the croppie he distributed here
several yearn ago, and is of the opinion
that these lish will be the most plenti
ful game lish in this section. The car
will vUit this city again in October,
when another lot of spawn and fish will
Friday evening the city council will
hold a special meeting to consider the
proposition presented by the Columbus
Light, Heat & Power company, and they
desire that all the patrons of the light
company who are interested attend the
meeting. The proposition of the light
company is substantially as follows:
The highest rate charged shall be four
teen cents per killowat. with a ten per
cent discount if the bill is paid before
the tenth of the month. This rate ap
plies to users of leH than fifty Idllowats
per month, but on larger quantities a
sliding scale will be made, a reduction
for each additional fifty killowats used.
This proposition has been lefore the
council for several weeks and they have
been considering it, nnd the Friday
night meeting will probably dispiweof it.
