folk passenger train, just as it started
north from Platte Center, and ifad one
leg cut off and the other foot badly man

A. (I. Parker, and his injuries temporar
ily dressed, und he was then brought to
this i-ity on the freight and taken to St.
.Mary's hospital, where he was placed in
charge of the company surgeons. The
shock of injury was too much for him,
however, and he died Saturday morning
at oue o'clock. No one seems to know
how the accident happened, bnt this
much is known, that he was under the
inlluenceof liquor and between this city
and Oconee he insisted on riding on the
coach platform, until Brakeman Putnam
threatened to stop the train and force
him to enter the car, when he entered the
coach again. He apparently remained
on the train, which stopped for ten min
utes at Platte Center, and then attempt
ed to get off as it started. Mr. Foreman

held by coroner Gass Monday after
noon of this week, und he summoned a
jury composed of J. S. Hauey, Louis
Schwarz, Geo. Bloedorn, M. C. Skroupa,

number of witnesses were examined,
among them the train crew, and the jury
brought in n verdict that Mr. Foreman
came to his death by falling off Union
PaciGc train No. 2i, while in motion, at
Piatte Center, on the evening of Decem
ber 9. No biame was attached to uuy
one. Mr. Foreman's brother, who lives
west of this city, near Duncan, was the
only relative present at the inquest.

W. A. McAllister Lands the Plum.
Monday eventng W. A. McAllister re
ceived a telegram from Senator Brown,
stating that he and Senator Burkett had
recommended him to President Taf t for
the appointment as postmaster of the
city of Columbus. The telegram also
asked that Miss Florence Kramer, daugh
ter of the present postmaster, be retained
as deputy, Tuesday's dailies confirmed
this message, and in a week or ten days
Mr. McAllister's name will be sent to
the senate by the president nnd his ap
pointment will be confirmed.
In 1900 and in 1901 Messrs. Kramer and
McAllister were candidates for the post
mastership of this city, and both times
Mr. Kramer landed the job. The same
condition existed this near, but this time
Mr. McAllister was given tho position.
The change in postmaster will take
place January 1, as at that time the
business of the office is closed up and
makes a transfer comparatively easy.
Sometime ago Postmaster Kramer
asked for an additional city carrier, nnd
it was understood that should the de
partment not decide to grant the request
for another carrier, that n route using a
carrier a portion of the time would be
established. Now, in older to decide
which cause to pursue the department
has ordered that all mail hindled by tho
city carriers b weighed- aid ooiinted
daring a certain period in January 1911
When this is done the department will
compare the amount of mail handled
with their fixed schedule, and should the
count prove satisfactory another carrier
will be allowed, nnd if not, a once a day
deliver will be established over a por
tion of the city until the required amount
of mail is hnndled, meets the require
ment of the additional catrier.

In 1SS9 the family moved to David City,
where she resided until ebo was married
to M. C. Keating in this city on October
10, 100G. About a year nnd a half ago
Mrs. Keating was stricken with chronic
heart trouble, nnd ten days ago it became
acute, so thnt she was confined to her
bed. Besides her husband and eon Mrs
Keating leaves her father, Wm. Fox, and
two brothers, Thomas and Michael Fox,
and four sisters. Mrs. Thomas Wade

Mr. nud Mrs. Charles Gans, living
south of the Loup river, had a narrow
escape from death in this city last
Thursday afternoon. They had come to
the cit in n carriage, and during the day
Mr. Gans purchased a new wauon.
When they were rendy to start fir homo
Mr. Gans tied the carriage behind the
wagon, and Mrs. Gans rode in the carri
age. .Inst as they were getting ready to
cross the railroad tracks on Platto street,
south of the Clother hotel, the switch
engine and n string of cars were backing
east. A switchman shouted a warning
to Mr. Cans, but it wi. not henrd or
headed and the cars crashed into the
front end of the wagon, nnd just as they
struck he jumped tc the ground. The
reach of the wagon was broken and this
released the horses, and when they ran

wound and was taken to the Clother
hotel for medical treatment The carri

along side of the car and it was impossi

the cars were stopped she stepped out
uninjured. Just who was responsible
for the accident has not been determin
ed, the railroad men claiming that they
were not running fust and there was no
neglect of duty so far as they were con
cerned. During the afternoon Mr
Gans recovered from the shock sufficient
ly to return to bis home, and the only

Last Friday afternoon the republican
county central committee net at the
council chamber in this city, and when
Chairman Webb called then to order be
stated that they were called for the par-
pose of endorsing someone for the posi
tion of postmaster of Columbue. Aad
while the chairman evidently meant well
in his statement, he did not really know
that the matter was already settled.
As the regnlar secretary of the com
mittee was not present, C. C. Sheldon
from the Third ward, was selected to
act in this capacity. Three of the town
ships were represented by proxies, and a
mention that they be admitted wan carri
ed unanimously. Sixteen townships
were represented, and the chairman,
made the total number seventeen . The
committee conolnded that they conld
conduct the deliberations alone, and a
resolution was passed excluding all bat
members of the committee from the
room. A motion to leave the selection
of the postmaster was defeated by a vote
of nine to six, as was also a motion to
allow the candidates for the office to ap
pear before the committee and make rep
resentations the vote standing nine to

Monday evening the stockholders and
directum of the Columbus ball club met
at the firemen's ball to listen to the fin
ancial report of the club during the past
season and also talk over the situation
for the coming year.
A meeting of representatives- of the
clubs of the state league was called to
meet in Hastings Wednesday. Decem
ber 14, and in view of this the club talk
ed over matters informally and elected
two delegates, A. A. Fritz and C. E.
Pollock, to attend the meeting in the in
terest of the Columbus club While it
is probable that Columbus will be in
the league the coming year, yet this may
not materialize unless some concessions
are granted to this city. One of the
main contentions of the Columbus dele
gates is that this city he given a repre-
sective on the board ol directors of the
league. The faet of Columbus not bav
ing such a representative last year re
sulted in this team setting the worst of
it on numerous occasion?, and this the
club does not propose to stand fur again
Columbus will also he heird when it
comes to arranging the schedule, experi
ence having taught them that improve
ment could be made over 1910.

to the meeting.

appreciated. The meeting next Sunday
