Chas. Morse received the first-load of
new oata that has been brought to town,
at 20 cents a bushel. He expects to see
them at 15 cents, but thinks it would be

young stock of all kinds.
James Russell has completed stacking
sixty acres of small grain a splendid

Sunday's dailies told of an automobile
acoident at Rochester, Indiana, which
resulted in the death of Mrs, John Eck
ert, a lady well known to many Colum
bus people. A party of seven from
Logansport, Indians, were on their way
to Lake Manitou, and when crossing the I
railroad tracks at Rochester the machine
was struck by a railroad train and Mrs.
Eckert instantly killed and the remain
der of the party injured. Mrs. Eckert
was a relative of the Wni. Bucher and
G. Frischholz fnmilies of this city, and
had visited here on several occasions.
Telegrams were received by the relatives
in this city saying that Mrs. Eckert was
the only one who lost her life in the
accident, while the dispatches in the
dailies said there were five killed. No
further particulars were given excepting
that a later message said the other mem
bers of the party were not seriously
injured. Mrs. Wm. Bucher, accom
panied by her daughter, Mrs, Al. Becker,
left Monday evening for Logansport to

Sons of Hermann, Gruetli and Land
webrverein,and this second meeting was
the outcome of a preliminary meeting

American history for the purpose of
ascertaining more about the lives and

pioneer days, to encourage the adoption
of gymnastic exercises in the public
schools, and to unite all of the German
American societies into one body for the
purpose of promoting principles common
to their interests.

There is considerable complaint from
local fishermen regarding gas that goes
to the river through the sewers. They
claim that the gas poisons the fish and
makes them unfit to eat This is cer
tainly an important matter and should
be looked into at once. The Columbus
Fish and Game Protective association
have been doing much to keep our waters
well stocked, and anything that may
injure or destroy the fish should be
brought to their attention.
Union Camp No. 134, Bona of Veterans

definite resulted, and now the camp will
endeavor to have the organization com
pleted before the cold weather.

none of his former successes can com
pare with "Nancy." Miss Cameron's
role is the best she has ever appeared in
and fits her entirely, and is adopted
more particularly to her talents than
any other play she has ever been cast in.
The production is complete in every de
tail, and the company is a noted one.

the meeting there is but little doubt
that Platte county Germans in this lo

One of the warmest political scraps in
the history of PJatte county democracy
was pulled ofTuesday, the fight being
on the candidates for governor. It has
been an open wcret for some time that a
large per centage of the German vote
would go to Dahlman. and in order to
offset this the local county organisation
exerted every effort for the governor.
Chairman Byrnes of the state committee
was in the thick of the fight, and Gover
nor Shallenberger can thank O. M.
Gruentber for his work in recording
Platte county's vote for him. The Shall
enberger men were out early in the city
in automobiles and rigs soliciting
votes for the governor was mueh in
On the other hand, a number of the
prominent Germans of the city and
county were looking after the interests
of the Omrha mayor, and tbe gains made
by him over two years sgo, show that
their work counted . For awhile i t look
ed as though Dahlman would get tbe
Polish vote, but tbe Shallenberger man
agers claim that they held them in line.
In the country precincts Dahlman car
ried Sherman and Bismark, but in nearly
ali of tbe remaining precinots Shallen
berger had a majority. In the sorap the,
remainder of the democratic ticket was
lost sight of with the exception of Hitch

Late returns from the country pre
cincts indicate that Shallenbergcr's
majority over Dahlman in Platte county
will be between three hundred and
three hundred and fifty. In some of the
northern precincts Dahlman made a
much better showing than was anticipa
ted, while in one precinct Monroe
Shallenberger received the entire thirteen
democratic votes cast while DahlmaB
was shut out.
On county attorney Hensley and
Wagner are running very close and it
will require the complete count to de
Later reports indicate that Dahlman
has carried every county in the state
north of the Platte river, with the ex
ception of Platte county. This would
indicate that Mayor Jim is quite popular
with his party de-pite his many apparent
differences with the leaders.
On tbe republican senatorial question
there has never been mnoh question ss
to who would be the nominee. Senator
Burkett having no organized opposition
to his candidacy to succeed himself.
On governor, Aldrich was conceded

Columbus is still climbing towards
tbe top of the list, and been playing ex
cellent ball. Out of six games, two each
with Red Cloud, Superior and Hastings,
they have won four, losing one each to
Superior and Hastings.
At Hastings there was a donble head
er and Columbus won tbe second game
with Corbett in the box. In the first
game Bovce was struck in the chest with
a ball and Sindelar finished the game.
During the last week there have been
no changes in the team and there are no
prospects for any.
The date of closing games of tbe
state league hav been under considera
tion for some time, snd there is talk of
having the season close September 1, in
stead of September 10. according to the
original schedule. This is on account
of some of the teams not receiving the
patronage they expected, and it will put
them-in better condition to start the
season next year.
