Frank Kersenbrook of the Columbus
base hall club and H. A. Fritz, who were
delegates to the state league meeting at
Hastings laet week, returned very well
pleased over the success of their trip.
They succeeded in getting a member of
the board of directors from Columbus,
C. E. Pollock being elected to that
office. Another concession to be made
is the three game schedule, this arrange
ment making it better as far as travel
ing expenses are concerned and also
from the standpoint of attendance.
Henry Sievers of Grand Island was re
elected president, but had some opposi
tion, which was not pronounced however.
The schedule this year will provide for
112 games, the same as last year, and will
be arranged by the directors early in the
year. The $500 forfeit will be placed by
March 1 this year, so that should any of
the teams decide to step ont their place
could be filled in time. At present the
league is the same as last year, including
Fremont, Columbus, Seward, Grand Is
land, Hastings, Kearney, Bed Clond and
Superior. Columbus proving to be the
best ball town in the league, was given
proper consideration at this meeting,
and the report brought home by the
delegates will tend to increase the enthu
siasm already shown for 1911.
Sunday a new time table went into ef
fect on the Union Pacific, and one of the
important changes was the taking off of
two Denver trains, No. 13 and 14. Sev
eral minor changes were also made in
the time of the evening trains, two of
them arriving here a few minutes later.
Taking off No. 13, which arrived here
about 2 o'clock in the morning, means a
change in the mail service, the car for
merly carried by that train now being
carried by No. 11, which arrives here at
8:56, and the morning dailies do not ar
rive here until that hour. On the bran
ches the mail is delayed much more than
here, as on the Spalding and Albion
branches they will not receive their dail
ies until afternoon, while on the Norfolk
branch they will be delayed twelve
hours. No 13, which formerly passed
through here at 10:27 p. m., is now sche
duled to arrive at 5:21 a. m., about the
same time as No. 14 did prior to the

Thurston Bines company, which is offi
cially known as Company L, First Ne

and in the Philippine campaigns with
that company, when it lost sixty-three
dead and 228 wounded. Grimes Battery,
which Mr. Jones is the second lieuten
ant, was formed in 1812, and was one of
the famous batteries of the south in the
civil war. At present, Mr. Jones is

Mrs. Joseph Bothleitner, aged GG
years, died at the family home on East
Eighth street. Sunday evening after a
lingering illness of over two years. Mrs
Rothleitner, whose maiden name was
Anna Turk, was born in Gruenedorf, Aus
tria, June 25, 1844. In 1868 she was
married to Joseph Schinsel in her native
country, and when he died she came to
America and to Kansas in 1886. Here
she lived until 1904, when she was marri
ed to Mr. Rothleitner on June 25 of that
year and has made this city her home
since. Mrs. Bothleitner leaves one step
daughter, Mrs. Edward Schrott. of Mc
Cormick, Kas., who was here about a
month ago to visit her mother. Funeral
services were held Tuesday morning
from the home, and St. Bonaventure's
church, and burial was in the Catholic
Between eix and seven o'clock Tuesday
morning the shelving on the west side of
the Columbus Candy Kitchen gave way,
and with the contents crashed on to the
show cases, breaking them and causing
considerable damage to the stock.
Policeman Nelson passed the store about
six o'clock and did not notice anything
out of the way, but when Policeman
Hagel passed at seven o'clock the shel
ves were down. The owners of the
Candy Kitchen supposed the shelves
were anchored, and amply strong enough
to hold the weight placed upon them.
As soon as the accident was discovered a
force of men were eet to work cleaning
it up. and they resumed business with
out interruption the same day.
A new arrangement of the city de
livery in the business district is made
necessary by the change of the mail
trains on the Union Pacific. Heretofore.
No. 11, the night train, brought in all
the mail, including the dailies, so they
could be delivered early in the morning.
Now the mail arrives at S:56, when it is
on time, and in order to prevent too long
a delay, it has been arranged for carrier
Rollin, who supplies this district, to
uiake two trips in the forenoon and one
in the afternoon. This arrangement
may be temporary, however, as it may
not meet the requirements.

predations on the coal cars have been
quite numerous, and finally the culprits

practice of stealing the coal and selling
it to residents of the city. There was
not enough evidence to make a case, the
boys were given a warning by County
Attorney Hensley and on a promise to
not take any more coal were released.
Should they continue their depredations
they will be brought before the court

Improved Fire Apparatus for
At the meeting of the city council
December 2, City Clerk Becker wss
structed to correspond with manufac
turers of chemical fire apparatus, and
have some data regarding it for the meet
ing of last Friday evening. In response
to the letters several of the companies
had representatives present, wbilaotbers
sent written communications. The
council went over the matter carefully,
and should a chemical be purchased,
one with a fifty or sixty hone power
engine, carrying two chemical tanks.
ladders and six or eight hundred feet of
hose, would be type purchased. And in
connection with taking care of this ma
chine, it is understood that the council
have an offer from an automobile garage
to take care of it at the same rate ohfr,e
for automobiles, and furnish a man to
take it to fires, he to be on duty any hour
of the day or night.
Since the purchasing of a chemical
engine was brought up, many of the
citizens are in favor of the move, realiz
ing tLat additional apparatus is needed
and in this tbey are seconded by the
fire department, who understand the
situation better than anyone else.
At first the council was in doubt as
to whether they could mske the pur
chase, but after getting the desired in
formation, passed the following resolu
tion, which gives the people of Colum
bus sn apportunity to decide whether or
not the machine shall be purchssed.
Whereas, recent fixes and the water lose
resulting therefrom have demonstrated
the necessity for improved appliances
for getting to and putting out fires, now,

cil of the city of Columbus, Nebraska,

priation of not to exceed $5,000 00 for
the purchase of a combination chemical
fire hose wagon, motor propelled, with
each power according to such plans and
specifications, ss may be adopted by the
mayor and council?" be submitted to
the legal voters of Columbus, Nebraska.
Said proposition shall be submitted by
petitions, upon which shall be written or
printed, said proposition to be circulat
ed among the legal voters, not later than
the 20th day or January, 191 1.
Section 3. That if a majority of the
legal voters of said oity aliail sanction

case, proposition for the purchase of
such fire appartna shall be submit ted by
advertisement or otherwise to bidders,
and that when the mayor and council
have ascertained tin cheapest and best
of such apparatus, they may enter into
a contract for the purchase thereof, and
appropriate the money to pay theiefor
in accordance with the proposition so
submitted to the voter.
Besides disposing of this the council
placed an order for three steel cells, to
be placed in the old engine room of the

up for a jail. And they have also made
arrangements to use a portion of the

For some time the Commercial club
and others interested in the "Good
Roads" movement have been in corres
pondence with the Department of Agri
culture, with the result that Tuesday of
this week a Mr. Dodge, a good road ex
pert from the department, arrived in the
city to confer with the Commercial club
regarding the improvements of the high
ways. The one stretch of road that
particultrly interests this city m the al
most two miles between the Loup aad
Platte rivers, and also the short stretch
between the city and the Loup bridge.
It has been the general impression
that the bluffs north of the city would
be the place to secure the materia), but
this does not seem to lie the case. In
company with Messrs. G. W. Phillips.
G. Friscbholz and R. S. Dickinsos, Mr.
Dodge took an automobile trip to the
piece in roan in quest ion, and wftile in
that locality made tests of the soil in
various places. These samples he
brought to the city and will test them,
and while bis statement as to whether
they will answer the purpose or not will
not be forthcoming until the testa are
completed, ho feels confident thst he bsa
all the material close at hand necessary
to make a good road through the sand.
The approximate cost of euch a road,
whre material is convenient, is from be
tween HfiOU to $1,000 per mile, and this
means a road that will be permanent.
