Columbus has been working under
a new system of delivery since Mon
day of this week, when all the grocery
stores of the city stopped the task of
delivering groceries to the homes of
the citizens and M. H. Rathburn took
it un for them. Mr. Rathburn has di
vided the city into sections, or dis- J
tricts, and placed a man in charge of
each district. He has an entirely new
equipment of wagons and mules, hav
ing five rigs in tne city, although it
is expected that four will be able to
handle the work ordinarily, reserving
the fifth team for Saturdays and rush
days. A schedule of time has also
been laid down, and if a customer
wishes groceries on a certain delivery
the order must be in in time to be
filled, as the deliveries will be started
on schedule time.
About a hundred jteople representing
nearly all of the business houses of
the city undertook a booster trip Tues
day of last week. The trip was taken
under the auspices of the German Al
liance, and the principal objects were
to boost for the German picnic to be
held here next Tuesday and also for
the new court house. The first stop
was made at Humphrey, where the
patty remained for about an hour,
after which they proceeded to Lindsay,
where dinner was taken. After din
ner they took their journey homeward,
stopping at Corn lea, Tarnov and Platte
Center, arriving home about supper
time. The occasion was enlivened
with music by the Columbus band,
and addresses wera made at the vari
ous stopping places by Messrs, G. W.
Phillips, Carl Rohde, Charles Segelke,
Louis Schwarz, Jerry Carrig, William
O'Brien and W. M. Cornelius. An
other similar excursion will be taken
next Friday, the line to be taken to
include Creston, Leigh and probably
Schuyler and Richland.
Next Tuesday is going to be a big
day among the German population of
Columbus and vicinity, when they as
semble here to celebrate their Volks
fest. Arrangements have been made
for special trains to run here from
Lincoln, and visitors are expected
from a number of neighboring cities,
particularly Omaha, Lincoln, Grand
Island and Madison. A feature of
the celebration will be a street parade,
which will form at Orpheus hall at 2
o'clock, and march through the busi
ness portion of the city, and thence to
Kopetzky park, where the exercises
will be held. The parade will be'
headed by six mounted horsemen, who
will be followed by the speakers, the
city council, German Veterans Colum
bus band. Land-wehr-verein, Sons of
Hermann, Gruetli, Maennerchor and
Orpheus societies, floats and auto
mobiles. It is possible that the fire
department may also be represented in j
the parade. The program at the park J
is to consist of a number of selections '
of music and addresses, after which
the crowd will proceed to enjoy them- i
selves in the various methods which '
will be provided for them. '
Humphrey Marshal Ordered Out.
The village of Humphrey and its
board of trustees came in for a round
in the office of Governor Aldrich last
Friday, when the trustees were sum
moned to appear and show cause why
each and all of them should not be
turned out of their official positions
because of their alleged failure to
enforce the laws at the time of the
tournament and carnival last July.
Considerable testimony, much of it
evidently more or less contradictory,
was introduced in the evidence. At
the close of the taking of testimony,
both sides said they had no arguments
to ofTer, and the governor rendered
his decision, as follows:
"In this matter of the charge of
nonenforcement of the law and law
lessness, " said the governor, "it is
plain that the only legally appointed
police officer during the carnival was
Frank Echolt, village marshal. The
special policemen chosen by the vol
unteer fire department were not legal
ly selected and had no authority to
make arrests. The village board was
careless in permitting the town to be
policed without authority from it.
While the board was negligent, it
comprises good men, some far above
the average, and they say they acted
in good faith. The evidence to my
mind shows that the marshal is abso
lutely disqualified to hold the posi
tion he holds. His conduct on the
witness stand, his brazen denial of
statement he is alleged to have made
before Father Florence, the parish
priest, who would have no motive to
tell untruth, his denial of the word of
others, makes me think he is disquali
fied. I believe the statement of the
men's stories of the conditions describ
ed by the marshal to them and if this
were a criminal case I would say the
marshal told an untruth, to put, it
"Members of the board say they
did not see any violations of the law
but they were in their stores most of
the time and looked about them only
when going home or walking up the
streets. Debauchery was undoubted
ly going on during the carnival and the
marshal did nothing to stop It. If he
is not discharged 1 shall direct ouster
procedings against him in the supreme
court. The attempted assault upon
Dr. Cndoon by the marshal was entire
ly uncalled for, no difference how
much provocation he had. The time
has passed when disputes in civilized
communities are settled in that way.
The town of Humphrey has had a good
name and the only way any community
can miantian a good name is to enforce
laws against lawlessness. There was
some testimony to show that the sa
loons were open there on Sundays
three or four years ago, but that the
practice was stopped by the village
board after a complaint had been

Cross eye is nothing more or
less than misplaced or strain
ed eye muscles. By relieving
the muscle strain the eyes
soon resume their normal
position. This is especially
true in young folks. In the
grownups it takes longer, but
as long as vision remains in
the deviating eye, there is a
chance. I have made the
straightening of cross eyes a
specialty and the number of
cases I have cured will amply
bear mt my statement that
no operation is necessary.

The Humphrey Democrat of last
week contained an account of the
death of the Rev. George Meyer,
which took place at his old home in
Osnabrook, Germany, August 16.
Father Meyer was a brother of Theo
dore Meyer, of this ciy, and was well
known to many people in the vicinity
of Humphrey. A peculiar coincident
of the case was the fact that Joseph
Meyer, his nephew, died here the next
morning following the demise of his
uncle, and had been making arrange
ments to go to Germany for a visit.
Father Meyer was buried in the ceme
tery near the church where he receiv
ed his first religious training, and
where he received the inspiration to
devote his life to the cause of his
Labor Day la Cohmbva.
Perhaps there has never been a
more enjoyable celebration held in the
city than that of last Monday, when
labor took a rest and the city fire de
partment' entertained the citizens at
the anual firemen's day demonstration.
For several years while the large la
bor centrals were paying tribute to la
bor, the Columbus fire debpartment
has taken the day in hand as one of
their very own, inviting all local or
ganizations to take part with them.
For some reasor the carpenters' union
did not participate in the celebration
The program was carried out exact
ly as advertised with the exception of
the carpenters' union race, which, as
they were not represented, was turned
over to the painters.

consisting of the city band, the mayor
and city council and speakers, the
painters' union and the fire depart
ment had marched through the princi
pal streets of the city, the line of
march commencing at the city hall and
ending at Frankfort park. Here the
literary program was carried out.
Mayor Held delivered an address of
welcome to the labor unions and the
city for the day.
John C. Cleland of Fremont, one of
the veteran firemen of the state, and I
one of the founders of the state fire
men's association, and its first presi

firemen. He gave a brief history of
the state association, told of some of
his early experiennces when he first
knew Columbus, some forty years ago,
and of the growth of this city toge

complimented our officials on equipp

Judge William O'Brien addressed
the labor unions, calling attention to
the fact Labor is one of the three great
cardinal fibers of our social and econ

statesmanship of the nation, we were
still apparently, as far from a solu
tion of our economic problems as ever.
