MANY YEARS AGO
Filea of tbe Journal, January 23, 1878.
We learn ol a large enterprise that ib
talked of, viz, the settlement on farming
land in this vicinity next spring of a
thousand families from various parts of
the eastern states.
Three sharpers managed recently to
ride from Omaha to Chicago on one
ticket. They took seats at some dis
tance from each other and established
communication by means of a string run
along the outside of the car, on which,
after giving up his ticket, No. 1 eent his
check to No. 2, and No. 2, after showing
his check forwarded it to No. 3.
The new bridge that is to span the
Loup west of this place is manufactured
by Kellogg Maurice of Athens, Pa.
Mr. Clark Grant is foreman of the con
struction gang, and tbe work will go
forward as fast as the old bridge can be
got out of the way. The U. P. company
know the nature of the stream and will
doubtless put up one of tho strongest
bridges in the west.
From all parts ot the state comes the
good news that the inquiries for land
are numerous, and that there will be an
unprecedented inflow of immigrants
next spring. Now let every man in the
state make an extra effort to help settle
up our vacant lands. We will all be be
nefitted by it, iuclnding ihose who come.
Nearer neighbors, more schools and
more churches, better roads, more
business ot all kinds, more enjoyment
and more animation. There is 'room
and work and prosperity for thousands
of families. Help them to come west
"and itrow up with the country," and
this you can best do by disseminating
f&cta among your acquaintances and
friends.

Friday night's; meeting ot ths stock
holders of the Columbus Baas Ball Club
left no doubt about what would be done
daring the season of 1911 . Besides the
fifty stockholders, there was an enthusi
astic crowd of fans in attendance. The
election of a board of directors was ths
principal business ot the masting, and
when this was being disposed of ths
question of reducing the number ot dir
ectors was brought up. and resulted in
but five being elected, ss follows: C. E.
Pollock, Walter Lucre, H. A. Fritz,
Chaa. Segslke. jr..' and Sam Gasa, jr.
With the smaller board of directors the
business can be transacted to much bat
ter advantage, as there will be lass trou
ble and the smaller number can be got
ten together much easier. One of the
instructions of the masting was that the
board Lire manager Corbett for the com
ing season; and this was complied with
at once. Officers ot ths club will be se
lected from the board ot directors, and
this will be done at their mstting Satur-'
day evening of this wssk. 8o far tbe
only one mentioned for president is O. E.
Pollock, and as he is a director ot the
state league, his election to the head ot
the local dab would place him in a better
position to look after the interests of the
club. The directors have appointed a
soliciting committee to secure funds,
and they will begin their work soon, so
toe dab will be in a position to make a
good report at the first meeting ot the
direotors of the state league. With
manager Corbett at the head of the team
there is no question but that Columbas
will have first class ball all season, and
the ettendance nuke the season a big
ger success from a financial standpoint
than last year.
Chief Bert J. Galley, Lester Jenkinson,
of the Pioneer Hook & Ladder Co.,
EmilKumprof Hoes Company No. 1,
Louis Meier of Hose Company No. 2,
and A. J. Mason of the Bissell Hose
Company, are representing Columbus at
the annual meeting of the Nebraska
Volunteer Firemen's association, being
held at Alliance this week. The boys
left Monday afternoon over the Union
Pacific, going to Grand Island, and from
there to Alliance. They were accom
panied by a number of delegates from
other towns who were enroate to the
convention. John Parker of this dty.
but formerly of Albion, will be the next
president of ths association, as he at
present holds the position of vice presi
dent, and is in 'ine for the higher office,
that being the rale followed by the as-'
socistion. This will give Columbus Jhe
president, although he will be credited
to Albion, Mr. Parker being a resident
of that town when elected vice president.
The convention will conclude Thursday
and the boys expect to return Friday.
Some of the delegates were asked as to
Columbus1 prospects for entertaining
tbe next meeting, and he said it was
generally understood that this city was
not making an effort to secure it.
Last week the county board were ask
ed by the Columbus Commercial club to
assist with tbe proposed improvement of
the road between the Platte and Loup
rivers, south of the dty. Tbe committee
from the club asked that the board
pay one-half ot the cost of the road,
whioh is estimated at $800, and request
ed that such an amount, which has been
collected as inheritance tax, be appro
priated. This tax is to be used only for
permanent road improvement, in count
ies having less than 30,000 inhabitant
on roads radiating from towns and dties
in these counties. The law also provides
that this money cannot be divided among
the various townships and cannot be used
except for permanent roads . Ths board
took the matter under advisement and
before adjournment laid it over until
their meeting in March, when they will
take definite action. The committee
having charge ot the raising of funds are
going ahead and complete their other ar
rangements and hope to be able to have
the necessary funds for the road when
the time arrives for beginning the work.

But thia place waa not finished, so the
