Five JC.IM ago James l.cJwlth wa ono of
the wealthiest of I-lncoln'i property owners.
but he was not a society man. llo made his
money lu the coal and saloon business , nnd
invested H In real estate. When ho dlfd a
few years ago ho was worth $100,000 , so the
real estate men any. Two big hi Ick blocks
at Klovciith and P streets bear his name.
On ono ho loft n mortgage )
Ho loft n widow nnd flvo children by a
former wife , and a will giving Mrs. Lcdwtth
her dower Interest , the balance to bo
divided between the children. Ho named
his brother , John , a resident of Ohio , as
executor , nnd John came out and took
charge of the estate. Not" long ngo Mrs.
Lodwlth complained to the court that John
had boon falsu to his trust , had nlloucd the
mortgage on the business property to bo
foreclosed because ho did not make nccos-
nry Interest payments , and had refused to
Rlvohcrtho amount allowed under the will
tor her maintenance nud support , as well as
those of the children.
The will allowed her $100 ft month for her-
elf and children , but has not boon paid for
flvo or six months. The children have been
attending school at Columbus , but the
principal of the school would not allow them
to return homo at the close of the year
until the bill for tuition nnd board ,
1306- was paid. Mrs. Ledwlth didn't '
hay ? the money and applied to the probate
judge for an order directing the executor to
pay the money and allow her to secure thu
custody of the children. Lodwlth came in
nnd said that ho was willing to pay the bill
If the children wore allowed to remain In his
custody , and Intimated that the widow wus
extravagant and wasteful where money was
concerned. The court did not issue the
order right away , but intimated ho would
grant the widow's request at an early dato.
When Lodwlth hoard of the court's inten
tion ho executed n flunk movement by going
tip to Columbus , paying the tuition bill nnd
bringing the children back with him to his
home. The widow and stepmother speedily
heard of It and took immediate stops to
got them back again. This morning eho
appeared before Judge Lansing nnd
nikcd fornn order compelling the icturn of
the children. She got It. and a deputy
Bhorlff wont up , took the children from John ,
gave them Into the stepmother's possession ,
secured n receipt for them and reported the
proceeding to the court. As ono of the children
is a young lady of 18 , the feeling engendered
can bo better Imagined than described. The
scrap is not yet ended , as the widow declare
that Lcdn'ith has secured possession of a
portion of the property left by his brother.

tracted nn immense crowd to the park. To
the accompaniment ot Atoam whistles and
the cheering ol througs , the queer looking
craft built in imitation of the vvossols in
which Columbus raado his adventurous
voyage , convoyed by United State * vessels ,
prlvato ynchts and a Hoot Kf excursion
steamers , drew up to the pier at the east en
trance to tno grand court. Captain Concapa
and the ofllcora were transferred to atcum
launches and passed under the peristyle ,
where they wcro Joined by n procession of
the rnotllcst craft ever socn in a single place.
South Sea Islanders , Vancouver Indians , Es
quimaux and other outlandish people , each
iu characteristic water craft , accompanied
the Spaniards lo a landing in front of the
Agricultural building , where an equally
unlquo reception awaited them.
Drawn up on the torraca were strange

Welcomed by Hoimtor Sherman.
como by Senator John Sherman , whd spoke
as follows :
Mr. President : You have before you men
nnd women of nil races and climes. They
have mot to share In this great exposition of
the Industries of all nations. Today they
celebrate the discovery of America by Chris
topher Columbus and the arrival here of his
mimic licet , the Santa Maria , Pinta nnd
Nina , manned by the countrymen of these
who made the discovery of the new world.
The voyugo of Columbus , 400 years ngo , is
a great event in the history of the human
race. Its wlderonching importaneo can
scarcely bo measured by other events. It
marks an era iu human progress Battles
have boon fought which involved the rise
and full of nations. Inventors and nrchltects
have conferred untold wealth and prosperity
upon | mankind. The genius ot poets , orators
and : statesmen has illuminated the world
and emblazoned their names among the few
that were not born to die. Can any act of
these can any act of heroism , invention or
genius compare in its beneficial results to
iho discovery of America by Columbus ? It
added to civilization a hemisphere of three
great ' continents and Innumerable islands. It
gave birth to n spirit of enterprise moro last
ing than the crusades , moro fruitful In re
sults than the victories of Alexander , the
conquests of drear or the genius of Bona
parte. It was the beginning of the great
revival from the long stagnation of the dark
ages to the energy and wonderful progress
of modern civilization. It contributed largely
to , the renaissance of ancient Greek and
Roman literature and led the science , art
and invention of the sixteenth century.
Wonderful Itoiulta of the Dlicovcry.
Columbus fouud what ho did not seek. Ho
sought the India of Marco Polo and found anew
now world. Greater than this , ho demon
strated the form nnd dimensions of the
earth , the order and movement around the
sun , nnd made it possible for man to compre
hend the infinite grandeur of creation in the
When wo consider the difficulties ho over
came , his long boseeehing'at court , the slen
der means provided lor him and the frail
vessels that were to bear him Into unknown
seas , we do not wonder at the hesitation of
princes , the doubts of priests and layman
and the fear of sailors. \ \ o have before us
the reproduction of the Santa Maria , the
Pinta und the Nina , the three vessels that
made this memorable voyugo. Thoso. are
sent to us by the same chivalrous and gal
lant people who built the original craft and
manned and sailed them under the command
of Columbus. They are striking object les
sons , wnich speak moro eloquently than
voice or words. Hero on the wutors of this
inland sea , 1,000 miles from _ the _ ocean
traversed by Columbus , In this city , the
most marvelous result of tb industry and
energy of mankind , wo plnco this mimic
Hoot side by side with the monsters that
have come from the inventive genius of the
American people , not to extot our handiwork ,
but to extol the men who , 400 years ngo , with ,
such fcoblo weans and rcsour os , opened the
way to nil the achievements of succeeding
generations. .
llrnve Men They Were.
I/iolc nt them I In such ns those 120 men
sailed on nn uuknou n ocean , they know not
whoro. For 2,000 historic years the Pillars
of Hercules had marked the end of the
world. They had been taught to believe in
the four comers of the c.irth , and that all
beyond was a bounulcis waste of waters ,
Into Inch no ono had ventured bevond the
Canary islands und the const of Atricn. Is [ I these sullois regarded >
their loader as u crazy enthusiast , bent upon
a desperate adventure , in which their lives
were involved , und that their wives und
children wept over them at parting as the
dead they would see nn morel And yet
Columbus maintained his Intluonco ever
them , Ho soothed their fears with his unwavering -
wavering faith und compelled their obodlt ,
once with his firmness and courage.
Many thought him an enthusiast nnd a
dreamer , but ho was more. Ho wus u student -
dent of nature. Ho was u traveler , a sailor
upon all the seas then known. Ho was
familiar with the recent African discoveries
by the Portuguese. Ho had visited Sweden
nnd Norway nnd had read und bean ! of the
voyages of the Norsemen. Ho behoved with
Galileo that the world was round , that thcro
was no fallliiir-off pluco. Ho drew a map '
and made n globe showing that the India l'J
Marco Polo was within 750 leagues of the
Pillars of Hercules. Howasnfraid to sail
on Friday. Ho mistook the distance to India
moie than 1,500 , leagues. Fortunate mistake ,
for it enabled Columous with honest nnd
good fuith to cheer his discouraged nnd su
perstitious mariners with the promise of gold >
nnd Jewels described bj Marco Polo. Ho
wus inspired by the hope of empire nnd the
spread of the true faith.
And Providence wus on his side , The sea
was calm , The currents of ocean wafted
him on his way. His frail caravels were
vessels of strength to him. The signs of
land uhoorod him on his voyage. Ho be
hoved in God , in Providence and his church ,
When nt length the now world opened to his
vision ho reverently dedicated it all to his
God and to his king and queer.
Ji.ibolla Kntltlud to Honor.
Still deluded by his belief that ho was on
the shorati of India his llrst eiTort was to convert -
vort thu children of nnturo ho found to mho
Christian faith and hope. His next was to
loturn to Sp.iin to proclaim his glad tidings
with great loy. All his hopes wcru realized. !
NoTongur the adventurer to bo scoffed at

While justice demands that ttio first
honors of this discovery bo given to Coluui-

heart as well as her Jewels into this cause.

Cruel March riflCUltlznllon.
U is mlnful to follo * < fho life of Columhui
ftfter his first voyngo , nud still moro painful
to narnlo the cruelties upon the poor
Indian of "onch nnd nil tttb nations of Europe
that came Into con t not with thorn. Hut this
.seems to bo tha Inevitable result of tha
march of clvlllmulon , . which trends re
morselessly on tha WCAK nnd feeble , nml
ends with the survival t > f the strongest. By
Injustice nnd cruelty .the chief nations of
Europe sclfod nnd held nil parts ot America.
AU these vast contlndhH nnd islands ware
dominated nnd controlled by European
races. But it Is duo to thu Spanish , French
nnd Portuguese people to note that , while
their conquests of the nnttvo tribes of
America wns marKcd with cruelty , yet they
preserved nnd engraved the body of the
native population into anil among their con
querors , nnd hnvo thus formed sixteen Inde
pendent republics , peopled chiefly by do-
sccndnnts of native American tribes , while
the Anglo-Saxon domination resulted In the
remorseless extermination of the natlvo
tribes wherever our race planted their foot ,
nml rroiporlty Abound.
Tha tread of four centuries has passed
ever America slnco the Santa Maria , the
Pinta nnd the Nina touched its shores.
What n change has como with the march of
tlmo. The ignorance nnd innocence of the
nntlvo tribes , scarcely advanced beyond con
tented nnimnl life when America was dis
covered , hns given way to the civilization of
Europe. The greater part of these conti
nents are now divided Into independent re
publics based upon thn laws and customs of
the flrst European country that seized them.
Even these parts still attached bv political
ties to European powers are substantially
independent. America is no longer open to
European conquest. The people who inhabit
each part of America are nblo lo defend
themselves. Happy In our isolation , content
with our free institutions , proud of our
growth , and rich In the bounties of hnnvon ,
wo wish for nil the nations of the world like
happiness and prosperity. Wo respect and
have no doslro to Interfere with the po.veraj
mont or institutions of European countries ,
and expect a llko non-Iutorferonco from
As Americans , and especially ns citizens
of the United States , wo fully comprehend
the great advantages possessed by older
countries in the higher development of art ,
science and litoraturo. Wo claim nn Inher
itance in these ns the work of our common
ancestors. Wo wish to gather lessons from
the experience and skill of all nations , nnd
to show by our haudiwori : in every depart-
mnnt of Industry that wo are trying to keep
up with them and if possible to excel them.
All Are Welcome.
America must for generations bo the
granary of Europo. Food of every kind ,
animal or vegetable , must bo our chief con
tribution to mankind. Cotton , wool and all
textiles can" bo tproducod almost without
limit In America. Every country of the
civilized world is represented bv its de
scendants on American soil. Wo share
with them our advantages of boundless
fertility of a broad and now country of uu-
tramuielled opportunity und will gladly toke
lessons from thorn in culture , economy ,
skill and art. The nations of the world are
now moro akin to each other than of old.
Ilapid transportation , free intercourse , ex
change of commodities , international
treaties , expositions and broader
itariunism Is now the tendency of our ago ,
which wo fondly hope will , in duo time , in-
splro confidence and obliterate prejudice
among the nations and tribes of men , and
secure ponce and harmony , confidence nnd
good will , Instead as of old , war and discord ,
Jealousy and hate.
Lot us hope that the inspiring scones around
us. in which all tno tribes and races of men
are participating , may secure to us nud to

Views of the State Treasurer o
SubjccU of Intercut.
State Treasurer Bartloy was quietly cooling
ing himself in the night air in front of the
Millard last night. In response to a few
gentle pulls of the reportorial pump ho ven
tured his opinion as to certain al
mutters affecting the exchequer of the it
nnd glorious commonwealth of Nebraska.
"I believe I do not state it too strongly !
when I say that nine out of every ton people
in Lincoln would have boon bettor pleased to
have seen C. W. Moshor permitted to toy
over to the bank receiver thu Jl'JO.OOO ' his
fiionds f proposed to pay than to have him
sent to the penitentiary without paying n
cent. They argue that confinement in the
penitentiary 1 will bo no punishment to
Mr. Moshor , and I think they uro about right
m ' that view of the case. Ho has already
suffered a good deal moro than ho will over
nsuffer in a penitentiary if ho should bo sent
up for twenty years. No. I don't think ntH
Capital ' National bank will pay out much. If
the ' depositors and the state get anything at
nil they will have to get it out of the stock
holders I , for they will never got it out of the
assets of the bunk now. If Moshcr had been
permitted 1 to assist in straightening out the
affairs of the defunct institution nnd had
paid 1 in the $100,000 ho proposed to , them
would have been a good show for the
depositors < to have realized all the way hem >
M to BO per cent of the amounts deposited ,
but ' as mutters now stand it Is difficult to say
whether or not they will ever got anything
unless ' it can bo made out of the stock :

Speaking of his good luck in having but >
llttlo 1 money belonging to the state ir
dized by the numerous bank is ,
Mr. Burtloy said : ! " have only had
$2,0 > K ) in banks that have supendea
during these hard1 times and that
was in the case of the' ' American National
bank of Omaha. I hud $2,000 In that bank
and I consider it perfectly safe. I expect to

This city has never boasted of being the
homo of any of the people who existed prior
to the deluge , nor has It claimed to hate
within Its corporate limits any of the folks
who wore with Noah white ho was paddling
his boat about the peaks of Ararat dur
ing that violent ram storm mentioned
in sacred writ. Not a human being
lives In this city who lays any claim
to have been with General Oojrgo Washing
ton , acting as his body guard or trusted
servant , but thcro Is nn old colored woman
hero who Is so old , wore she not too modest ,
who could stop Into the arena and become
ono of the heroines of ancient history.
Auntie Aggie Bludsoo , as she Is known
about the ofllco of the county poor agent , is
a woman who has rounded the century point
nnd since then nddcd three years Vo her rlpo
old ago. While the woman Is not a pauper ,
she is practically a charge on the county ,
being unable to furnish her entire support
by taking In washing nnd doing house clean
ing. She Is as black ns a squaw's ' pocket ,
with n woolly head that Is as white as snow
and a stop that is weak nnd feeble.
For nearly twenty years this old colored
woman has occupied a little cabin lu the
eastern portion of the city , where she has
worked early and Into , socking to lay aside
enough money to provide for the wants of
her declining years. Her remembrances of
her early lire are vanuo and indistinct ,
though she has n vivid recollection of most
of the things that have occurred duriug the
past half century , or at least so far ns they
pertain to her own existence. While nt the
county agent's ofllco yesterday morning she
was In a talkative mood , and for an hour or
moro entertained a small but select audi

The old woman claims that something like
sovontv-llvo years ago she was living in the
vicinity of Wotterton , Vn , nnd was the prop
erty of Charles Austin , a.young and wealthy
planter , who numbered his slaves by the
hundreds nnd his acres by the thousands.
Some years later Austin died , nnd she , with
the other slaves , was placed upon the auc
tion block and sold. Auntie Bludsoo fell
Into the hands of a hard master , and for a
few years she was ( logged and beaten in a
most inhuman manner , and.until she was
sold again , going to Mississippi. After that
and for a number of years she was sold right
and loft , eventually falling Into the hands of
Jason Bludsoo , a rich tobacco planter , who
resided at Wottorton , her former homo.
After that her life was ono of sweet repose ,
as she was given a httlo hut In the negro
quarters and wus installed as a nurse.
In speaking of Bludsoo the old colored
wotnun broke down and cried like a child ,
declaring that ho was the best master that
there was in the whole south. He treated
his slaves in n human manner and gave
many of them their freedom. To show that
she was among the number sot free , this old
colored woman produced a paper , crumpled
nnd worn , upon which was written the fol
lowing : "This paper Is that Auntie
Agglo Bludsoo has been sot frcu , and no do-
blared by mo this 7th day of October , 1851.

The old woman did not leave the planta
tion , but continued nor nursing In her tnas-
tor's family and among the slaves of the
plantation until the rebellion broke out ,
when she went among the soldiers , adminis
tering to their wants. L.itor on the Bludsoe
mansion was turned into a hospital and she
returned , there to remain until the close of
the hostilities. As a nurse in this hospital
she was in charge of the ward occupied by
the officers , who pave her many little testimonials
menials to show that her services were ap
With the close of the war she drifted
north , going from place to place , until she
finally settled in this city.
