Monday evening the city council com
pletcd the purchase of the auto lire
truck, which they have had under con
sideration for some time. Saturday of
this week the committee appointed by
the council, consisting of Council nieu
M. O. Oallo, F. S. Davie and O. F.
Elias, City Clerk Wm. Becker. Chief of
the fire department Bert J. Galley and
A. C. Boone went to Omaha to witness
the demonstration of the auto tiro truck
purchased by that city. The Omaha
track was made by the eame concern,
the Seayrave company, as the one pur
chased by Col umbos, and after witness
ing the testof that machine for half a
day, the Columbus men were convinced
that the Seagrave truck was the one the
city should have. The total cost of the
truck will he $f,915, delivered in this
city, and will be fully equipped, the
motor being thirty horse power and the
niHximun sitecd twenty miles an hour.
The adding of this additional equip
ment to the tire depattment will not
mean an increase in the number of fire
men, as men from the different com
panies will be selected to operate the
new truck. Columbus now has n fire
fighting equipment equal to any of a city
of its size, and the new truck will prove
that the council did the right thing in
making the purchase. The machine
will arrive here aa soon as the factory
can ship it, but this may take some

of many weeks the pair returned to the
city and put the O K. btamp ou Kear

buying the interest of F. J. Saup in the
Airdomo. To further display their con
fidence in the city's enterprise a deal
was ronsuiuated yesterday whereby
Messrs. Hoppen and Schwar. also ob
tained the interest of Mr. O. E. Lambert
who in partnership with John Chapman
owned the Kew Palace Cafe, Possession
was taken immediately and Mr. Schwarz
will take up the work where Mr. Lam
bert left off, the latter gentleman leaving
for Texas in a few days with the view of
locating.' Mr. Hoppen will devctc his
entire time to the interests of the Air
dome, the season opening about the
middle or May.

a habitual drunkard, tiled by his daugh
ter, Mrs. Walter Scott. He was sen
tenced to a term in the county jail, but
the judge promised to discharge him if
he would tell who furnished him the
whiskey. At first he refused to do this,
but late in the evening reconsidered,
and sent for the judge and told him who
furnished the whiskey. The name of
the party has nut been made public yet,
and it is understood that later he will be
prosecuted under the statute, which
provides for a severe penalty.
One of the acts passed by the last
legislature and signed by the governor,
