Last Saturday evening the republicans
held a mass meeting in the Firemen's
hall for the purpose of selecting a city
ticket. A good representation of the local
party attending the meeting, and while
a complete ticket was not named, coun
cilnien for each ward and a candidate
for city treasurer were placed in nomina
tion. The meeting was presided over
by Carl Kramer and Frank Schram was
elected secretary. V. II. Weaver was
nominated for city treasurer, and the
four wards, when called upon, named
the following candidates for the council:
O. 0. Shannon, First ward: Joseph
Gutzmer, er.. Second ward: E. Berg
man, Third ward; George Winslow,
Fourth ward. All the candidates, with
the exception of George Winslow, are
new men, Mr. Winslow being a member
of the council from the Fourth ward.
Several candidates for Mayor were nam
ed, but they declined to rim. In accor
dance with the usual custom of each
parly selecting one member of the school
board, the meeting selected C. L Dic
key, who will succeed G. A. Scott, as ho
will be endorsed by the democrats.
Julius Nichols, First ward; Isaac Brock,
Second ward, Bert J. Galley, Third
ward, and Frank Schram, Fourth ward,

held in Humphrey that day. As the
mePSHge was received after the departure
of the moraine, freight. Deputy Mark
HurWe made the trip in an auto. Arriv
ing at Humphrey he easily located Hall,
who had the live horses he had stolen,
aud placed him under arrest. He did
not deuy that he was the man wanted,
and remarked as a sort of a bluff, that if
the Cherry county people had waited he
would have returned and paid them for
the horses. One of the teams had al
ready been sold at the sale, but the time
ly arrival of Deputy Burke prevented
Hall from realizing on it. The Cherry
county officials were notified of his cap

club held a meeting Tuesday evening, in
the council chamber, to complete ar
rangements for the building of a per
manent road between the Platte river
bridge and the city . There was a good
attendance, and the report of the com

purpose, was read and accepted. There
is still a balance to beraieed and for this
purpose a committee, composed of C. J.

Branigan, who started in pursuit of him
When be found that Branigan was after

side of a fence, with the coat under him,
and as it was almost dark, nearly suc

capturing him Branigan recovered the
coat aud tiled a complaint against him.
He had his trail Tuesday, und when
brought before the court denied remem
bering any thing about the circumstan

sometime. Police Judge O'Brien con

J Mau conceives today that he has the
right and capacity to understand every
thing that concerns him. We smile at
the crudity of thought of a few 'years
since and grow rather iu Hated over our
stock of knowledge. That man should
believe that the earth were flat, the sky
a solid dome and the stars little point
of light seem to us very childish We
walk out into a larger world, we put in
to operation mightier forces; but is it
probable that our little candle has all
the light and our little chest of knowl
edge all the information? In our day
one man has discovered hundreds of
new worlds and distance in "the blue"
is yielding to our mighty lens great se
crets. Is it not probable that a hund
red years will reveal the fact that we
have been simply playing on the shore
with the great seaof uncovered informa
tion lying before us?
Our intellectual pride would be rather
laughable were it not so dangerous. It
strikes a blow at the tap root of the
spiritual life, faith . It leadB men to eli
minate from their religion the super
natural. Men eay do not lay so much
stress on prayer, faith, ungles, holy spir

Man must go heart first not head first

rather than a brain struggle. As 11 man

Y. M. C. A. Notes.
The dominating thought throughout
the state convention held iu Omaha
last week was aloug the lines of work
with boys and young men of the rural
communities. It was shown that cer
tain large churches in the larger eities
would not be able to continue were it
uot for the large number of accessions
they receive from the country and small
towns. Since this is the case it is im
perative that we of Columbus do all in
our power to furnish clean and strong
young men in every walk of life. It is
with this thought in view that we plan
for our summer activities. A tennis
club, 11 swimming class, a boy's scout
organization, a junior baseball league
and various other plans are in view but
the thing that handicap these movements
most is the lack of good adult leadership.
We dare not start these movements un
til we have the interest and pledged
support of several adults who are will
ing to lay aside their own plans and rec
reations and give their attention to
the boys for the definite good that is to
result. What part of this years work
will you uesist in? The secretary is glad
to have you come with suggestions and
your assistance ib earnestly urged.
