Two of our townsmen are think ing of making a visit to the old country, Herman Oehlrich, who goes to Hamburg, Ilolstein; and Geo. Wandel toStutgard, Wurten burg. They will make a summer visit, starting from heic about the first ot May. Mr. Giddiugs, engineer of the Atchison and Nebraska R. R. Co., arrived in the city Saturday. The preliminary survey of the route for the new road from Firth to Colum bus has been completed, the line crossing the Platte, a little below the mouth of the Loupe. We overheard a fanner the other day say to one of our dealers, who refused to give him "time" on some goods, "a man in business is never in need of money," and wc arc informed that the same opinion prevails with a great number of people. Strange, isn't it? Louis Kramer and Barney Bevcr&tock of this place, and Carl Kramer, brother of Louis, are to take charge of the new dry-goods store at North Platte. They are clever gcutlemen, and wc commend them to the citizens of North Platte as worthy their best regard. James Cady, an old acquaint ance and friend, now of Boston, was iu the city Friday and part of Sat urday. We were sorry to know that he was quite indisposed, bu he struck out ou Saturday for the west, where his business pressed him to go. Our best wishes for improved health go with him. S. N. Weudelboc, who lives in Polk county at the foot of the bluffs, and is well known to many of our citizens, and respected for good qualities, has leased his farm for a term of five years, to Emil Hassel back, his brother-in-law, and will return to Denmark, his former home. For some unknown reason his family have not had good health. Startling exigencies discover and bring out what there is in man. "When an individual wakes up at night with the shelves of- the store tumbling about his head and the same ou fire, he thinks quick, and if at such a time he carries a kitten out of the fire and danger, it show6 that he has other thoughts than of personal danger. E. "Weinscheuck, who conducts the Kramer dry-goods store at Sil ver Creek, spent the Sabbath in the city. Go to S. T. Hill's to get your watches, clocks and jewelry repair ed. Store with C. L.

Sabbath School of this city will give a concert next Saturday evening in the church at 7 p. m. At the close of the concert a collection will be taken for the benefit of the school. The next term of the District Court for Platte county will be held in this city on the 25th day of Feb ruary, A. D., 1879. Parties having Parties having business in this court will take notice accordingly. There was a large attendance at the "Literary" last Friday evening but the debate did not take place, owing to the illness of the debaters. It will positively take place next Friday evening, and a cordial invi tation is extended to the public. The Congregational Society of this city, at a meeting held for that purpose Inst Thursday evening elected the following officers: Pres ident, Rev. E. L. Sherman ; Clerk, Rev. J. A. Reed ; Trustees, E. M. Spsirhawk, S. C. Smith, J. H. Reed, C. G. Hickok, Wm. Foxwcll, J. E. Tasker and W. T. Rausdell. Revival meetings will be held in the M. E. Church of this city every evening this week, commenc ing at 7 p. m., Satuiday excepted. Rev. Dr. Roe of Omaha, is assisting in the meetings. The public are cordially invited to attend. Christ ians of sister churches are especially requested to participate iu the meetings. Last Suuday, while Mrs. D. Anderson and her dauglhcr Mrs. Laura Spielman, were visiting a sick woman in the northern part of the city, their horse became fright ened, broke loose from his anchor, and scud away, considerably damag ing the buggy. It was very fortunate that the Indies were not in the buggy at the lime. Dr. Slaughter, the presiding elder iu this district, while attend ing a quarterly meeting at David City last week, was suddenly and violently attacked with inflamma tion of the bowels, similar to the attack which recently cost Hon. Cyrus Allen his life. Prompt med ical aid relieved the Dr. temporarily and he went to his home at Omaha where he still remains, at last ac counts, iu a critical condition. The Columbus Mamucrchor will give a grand concert and Ball at the Opera House on the evening of Jan. 30th. Tickets can be had at Brod feuhrer's jewelry store. The con certs of the Mamnerchor are always good, and the public may expect in this a rich treat. After the concert will be the Ball, the music for which will be furnished by the Mienner chor string Baud. AH lovers of music and dancing should bu in attendance. "We have received our copy of Hill's Manual of Business and Social Forms, from Mr. W. II. Motter, the agent who has been canvassing in this vicinity. "We have not had time for examining the work at leisure, but its title is a complete index of its character and contents. It is a treatise ou the art of penman ship, on short-hand writing, on letter-writing, on intercourse on courtship marriage &c. &c. The book is printed on heavy, tinted paper, is neatly bound, and is orna mental as well as useful. It con tains, in neat form, a great variety of useful information, found hereto fore only in a number of books. David Anderson informs us that "Western Nebraska, Colorado, and a large portion of "Wyoming has becu covered for weeks with six to twelve inches of snow ; that the cattle on the great western ranges arc already suffering for food, and especially do they run wild iu search of water, as the rivers, ponds, lakes, &c, are all completely frozen over. Barton, of North Platte, the Schi dles and other large owners of stock along the Platte, have their herders break the ice at various points along the river, and thus their cattle are, in a measure, provided with water enough to satisfy the demands of nature. Mr. Anderson thinks there will be a lively demand for fat cat tle during March, April and May in the Rocky Mountain region, and that Nebraska and Kansas will find a good beef market west between now and grass. Cattle on the west ern plains arc accumulating so fast that large owners of stock told Mr. A. the feed was becoming poorer each year, and that heavy snows and great prairie fires were a great hindrance to the growth and fatten ing of their cattlo. FIRE! FIRE!! Krause's Hardware Store and Wm. Lamb's Grocery Burned to the Ground. All Praise to the Fire Department and a still air for Confining the Flames. Monday morning at 1 o'clock an alarm of fire was given, and a great many of the citizens of Columbus were wakened from their slumbers to find that the fire was at work on the hardware store of G. II. Krause & Sons aud the grocery store of "Wm. Lambadjoiningiton the south, both of them south of Bouesteel's two-story brick building on the corner of Nebraska Avenue and 13th street, west side. There was but a breath of wind, so that the fire de partment was able to keep it in check. George Fairchild and Otta Baker, who slept at Arnold's jewel ry store on the opposite side of the street, and who went to bed at 20 minutes after twelve, were awaken ed by the light at five minutes after one. Just at that time John Mc Mahon, night watchman, rushed around the bank corner, crying "fire." He says that he first noticed the light when at Grcisen's, on 11th street, and thinks that the fire must have originated iu the hack room of the Krause building, as he had pass ed it only a few minutes before, and had uoliccd nothing cut of the way. It was but a few minutes alter citizens and the fire department reached the spot when the walls of the Krause building gave way and the Lamb building was past saving. Nothing was taken out of the hard ware store, but a few things were saved out of the grocery, the safe being carried into the street un scathed by the fire. In a few min utes both buildings were burned down, and the summer kitchen at tached to the Bonestccl building, and the small frame west belonging to E. A. Gerrard were on fire. The former was torn down and the lat ter was flooded with water, and all but tho rear cud saved. Both fire companies were promptly on hand and worked like beavers, under the general supervision of R. II. Henry, chief of the department, who re ceives unbounded praise for his management. He was ably assisted by George Clother, foreman of the Hook & Ladder Co., aud his first assistant Herman Oehlrich, and Jno. J. Rickly, 1st assistant foreman of the Engine Co., who took charge in the absence of the foreman, and likewise by George Spooner. LOSSES. The hardware store building be longed to Will. II. Winterbotham, and was insured for $1,000. The stock of hardware, owned by G. II. Krause & Sons, estimated to be worth $6,000, was insured to the amount of $5,000, in the Hartford, Franklin, Springfield aud Home companies. Mr. Limb had an insurance ol $1,G00. His stock is variously esti mated from $800 to $3,000. Rev. Sherman, whose family oc cupy the upper story of the Bone steel building, lost about fifty dol lars worth of goods that were stored iu the summer kitchen. The south wall of the Bonesteel building is cracked iu several places. The fire was most admirably handled or it would have made sad havoc iu that part of town the large frame hotel of Clother's being just south of the fire. Indeed it was iu imminent danger at one time, .some of the shingles on the roof being on fire. It was exceedingly fortunate that there was no wind, as in that case, with the headway the tire had when first seen, nothing would have prevented a wide fire swath through the very heart and business portion of the city. INCIDENTS Or THE FIRE. Cinders were strewn in every di rection, aud a small hay-stack in the rear of T. C. Ryan's grocery on 11th street, south of the R. R. track, was set on fire, but was immediate ly put out by Thomas Coffey. There were powder cans in both stores, and cartridges, besides, iu the hardware store, all of which exploded at intervals, adding to the iutcrest and danger of the occasion. The shock of the explosions was sufficient to break glass on the op posite side of the street, and loud enough to he heard at E. M. Spar hawk's, three miles away. Kraue's safe ( a Diebold ) was opened, after being "as red as a cherry," having fallen into the cel lar, and the contents were intact steamed a little, the backs of the ledgers and day-books warped somewhat, but the contents all right, and the money, some two huudred dollars, iu prime condition. John J. Rickly had his back bad ly wrenched, and in removing Krause's safe he mashed the thumb of his right hand, so that the nail had to be pulled off. Herman Oehlrich had his left shoulder put out of joint. The clerk at Lamb's was aroused from his slumbers by the falling shelves. The only life lost was that of ' Frank," "Will Winterbotham's larirc dog, that wa3 at the time in the hardware store. Several pieces of silver money were found, some blackened, some slightly curved and some melted out of shape, which the boys will keep as relics. Georgo Spooner 6aye that when. the door of the grocery was knock ed in, he saw a man enter, pick up a large box full of soap, and make way with it. If it had been con venient to do so, he says he would have water-marked him. From all we can learn, the night watchman was tho first or nearly the first to give the alarm, and, judging by the rapidity of its work after it was seen, there can be little doubt that It was seen very soou after it began. Tho fire originated iu the Krause building, but just where or how can not be ascertained. They had had no fire in the shop, and a bracket lamp over the writing desk iu the store had been put out at 11 o'clock. Probably half the town was asleep through the fire, and heard nothing of it until breakfast time. This suggests to us to recommend that in case of fire everybody should yell at the top of his voice, and all the bells in the city be rung. Now will be the harvest of the insurers. The "Man up a Tree," the re publican editor of our Democratic contemporary, the man who keeps the Diary, pretends great concern for the Journal, and wants to know where it stands on the U. P. R. R. question; whether its editor has a pass, &c. For fear the anxious soul aforesaid may burst its mortal prison if the desired information is not forthcoming, wc will state that the Journal is now standing where it always has stood, and where it expects ever to stand in the future for justice to the road, and justice to the public. The Journal be lieves that a railroad corporation is equally as amenublc to law as is a hank corporation, an insurance cor poration, or any other sort of com pany to which special powers for special purposes nie given. If the legislature has the right to say that money shall not be loaned for more than eight or ten or twelve percent, per annum, it has the right to fix a reasonable tariff for the transporta tion of goods aud persons, within the limit of its jurisdiction. Cor porations (the whole brood of them) arc the creatures of law, and can not rise above their creator. There are all shades of opinion, on all sorts of corporations, but justice to all will hurt no one, although it may be of fensive to demagogues, who are but as bubbles on the current of public opinion, and yet pretend to be the cause of the current. As to whether the editor of this paper has a pass or not, it may sur prise our anxiously-inquiring friend to 6ay, we have not, but if w e had it would not influence our opinion or action one way or the other. There are men, no doubt, whose possession of an invitation to even a partially free ride would be "sufficient to put a collar" on their necks, and, judg ing from the language of our pecu liar friend, we might reasonably suppose that he was one of this kind, as men are prone to judge of other's motives by their own. It may be well enough to add that wc attach no particular importance to the above except as a possible means of saving our very peculiar friend from wearing anxiety aud carking care on our behalf.
