Accommodations at the Columbus
; , Mb, iEorro8,:The Morning Journal of
yesterday contained n, Item purporting to :
bp taken from the Cincinnati Gazette, re
flecting on the arrangements for the ac- i
commodatlon of passengers at the Colum
bus Depots Not content with copying the
item mentioned, the editor ot the Journal
takes occasion to speak in harsh terms of a
refreshment saloon In the depot, carried oaJt
by the Messrs. Ohmer, 'and In so - many
words advises the traveling public not to
patronize it. .1' think the editor of the
Journal would not willingly try to injure
the buBtiieas of such worthy gentlemen as
those who have control of that first-class
eating house, and it seems to me that ha
penned the remarks in the Jouonal without .
proper rt flection. With the limited space
allotted to the dining hall la ottr depot, I
wlllventure to say that there is no euch
place on the line ot any railroad where
passengers will receive more attention or
where they will find a more polite or cour
ffous set of gentlemen to cater to their
wants,' than In the dining hall of the
MessTS.-Qhmer... It is true the arrange
ments are not all that these enterprising
gentlemen , would wish, but under the
present circumstances, there is no dining
hall of its kind that will corupure favora
bly 'with that in the Columbus depot, and
I think the public will bear me out In
what I say. ; ; A Citizen.
Theater. 'That charming comedy, the'
Serious Family, was deliciously rendered
last night. Not a part but was handsome
ly rendered, not a point but was made, not
a situation missed. We think Mr. Fuller's
Aminadab was a picture both in make-np
and rendition. His every action reminded
us of tin individual of the same class who
blooms within a thousand miles of Colum
bus'. It ;was' 'splendidly performed." The
same Is true of the entire cast. " Mrs. Laner
gan's Widow Delmaine was charming, and
her wardrobe was the delight and admira
tion of the ladies in the .audience: Mr
Lanergan's Murphy .Magnire is hot his
best rendition;1 We prefer-him In Don

of Young Snobby, it was "dooced clever."

Doc Freeman, one of the darkies arrest
ed lor fighting in the new Deshler building,
opposite our office, paid $5 for his amuse

aggressor, the adverse faction was dis
charged. The Game Exposkd. The attempt to
kidnap Judge Pugh, Probate Judge ol this
county, having tailed, the Rids of Spring
field were compelled to show their hands ;
so about five o'clock on Tuesday evening a
squad of them went to his office and made
a written demand on the Judge for the
names of the parties naturalized 'by him
for the four days preceding the election.
They claim that there was I rami used in
the issue of certain papers. As the Judge
kindly permitted the Radicals to have an
attorney present during1 the entire time,
and allowed that attorney to ask what
questions he pleased, the lawyer should be
able to give them all the information they
need. . But Judge Pugh, conscious in his
rectitude,"has promised to furnish the list
they wanfj."' The Bads would like to do
here as they are trying to do in Philadel

Maennehchor Concert. There is of
course but little use in calling attention to
the first of the second series of annual con
certs to be given by the Columbus Maen
nerchor, at Naughton Hall to-night. Last
year these concerts were the events ol the
season, and lucky indeed were those who
could gain a seat. With the many and
great improvements made by the Maenner
chor, and their determination even to sur
pass their previous high standard of musi
cal perfection, we risk nothing in saying
that thi3 winter's concerts will be even
more fashionably and fully attended than
last year's. The programme lor to-night is
rich in' musical gems. .

, Concentrated Responsibility. There
appears to be, in these days, an increasing
desire by the public for things that are
permanent, substantial, and In every way
reliable. This, as a sign Of the times, is
most encouraging. In our public build
ings we see rnassiveness and an extent oi
accommodation never thought of by our
fathers ; in our bridges, telegraphic rabies,
immense railroad lines, and all internal
improvements,' we are willing to" sacrifice
any considerations of present or doubtful
advantage, for permanence, security and
extended capability. So too ; in . re
gard, to our Incorporated Institutions,
we exhibit a disposition to establish
such bodies uponwide and secure
foundation?, to abandon the idea of num
erous small and comparatively irresponsi
ble companies, with limited capitals.' and to
concentrate, as far as possible, the respon
sibility on which the public monetary In
terests may depend. Th6 substitution of a
reliable and confentrated bank-note sys
tem in the plare of that one which allowed
a little bank, in any little town, to send out
notes of very little value, anywhere but at
home, and which might become at any
moment of no value anywhere, has been of
the greatest public service. A national
bank-note. Issued In Maine, is perfectly
good In Florida,"and if the .issuing bank
cannot . redeem it, , the Treasury Depart
ment at Washington will. ' '""
So with insurance and other Companies
of the kind. The most popular life insur
ance company In America will doubtless
be the "National Life Insurance Company
of the United States." The charter of this
Company is not given by any State Legis
lature, but by the United States Congress.
It is intended to cover in its operations
the whole country. Its capital, not de
pendent upon futnre contingencies, is one
million dollars, all paid in. Its directors
and managers are men who stand at the
very head of financial affairs ia this
country, Clarence H. Clark, . Jay
Cooke, and" others" of the. very highest
integrity.' There is nothing about- this
Oompahy which shows any signs of possi
)le weakness in its construction. It is not
ecessary that its business should increase,
ind its affairs flourish, in order that it may
ie reliable and competent to meet all
osses and just demands... It Is so now.
Founded by men of wealth, its position is
such at its very inauguration, as few com
panies can hope to reach after years of suc
cessful existence.- There is no risk, no
dependence on the future succes of the
Company for one's belief in its character.
Besides this substantial foundation, the
National Lfie Insurance Company presents
many inducements to those who wish
to make, provision for the luture of their
families. Its rates are very low in com
parison with other companies. Its policies
are non-iorieiting. zney are negouame,
hut cannot be attached by the creditors of
the insured. All its promises are definite
and certain there is no chance or depend
ence on future profits in any ot them.
There are no unnecessary restrictions in
its policies, and no "extra" charges of any
kind. 1 ' ' : ' - V"'-
Then, its plans are of various and advan-'
tageous kinds. By one, a party can be in
sured in the ordinary method. By another,
all the money received as premiums will be
added to the amount of the policy and re
turned to the heirs at the death of the In
sured. By the Endowment Plan, the poli
cies are payable' to the insured after the
lapse of a stated term of years, or to his
heirs whenever his death mav occur.
By the Income-producing Plan not only
will the family or hfirsof the insured par
ty receive the full amount of his policy at
bis death, but he will, himself, receive a
yearly income, after ten, fifteen or more
years, as may be agreed upon.
Therefore, it is easy to perceive that, by
uniting, in one Company, all advantages,
both ot plans of insurance and ot absolute
security, arising from an immense combi
nation of capital, the National Life Insu
rance Company gives every promise of be
ing, truly, The Life Insurance Company of
Latino Round Loose. We met Charley
Wagner on State street yesterday laying
round loose and looking most disconsolate.
He was trying to smoke the stub of a re
galia cabbageio, had no bell on, and looked
lost. He had sold out his restaurant, and
the carpenters are fixing up his oyster and
fish depot, at; he oH place, in gay style.
Charley says that next week be will have
the greatest lot of canned lobster, sardines,
oysters, fish and the like for the supply of
hotels, restaurants and private families,
ever brought to Columbus. He's a juke iu
disguise, Charley is. :
Beware of Impostors. Our streets are
daily traversed by men whose appearance
indicates that they are absolutely In a
starving condition, but who in reality are
resorting to this expedient to deceive our
unsuspecting . and charitable .citizens.
Many of the beggars who are constantly
soliciting alms in our city are men ot the
vilest habits, and who appropriate the
money they receive to the purchase of
spirituous drioks. Some are thieves in dis
guise, who essay poverty in order to better
prosecute their business.

There was a heavy shock of an earthquake
