If is expected that the new rail
road will put up splendid buildings
for their accommodation. This
reasonable expectation of our citi

canse it is natural for a competing
line to ontdo the first company in all
such matters, especially when it is
abundantly able to do so.
Messrs. Whitmoyer, Gerrard &
Post and J. H. Mitchell are about to

own the business lots directly north,
could sec it to their interest to join

Jonas lied man, one of Platte
couuty's oldest and best farmers,
was iu the city Saturday last, and
purchased a number one team of
horses. He tells us that Mr. Swen
Anderson, who had rented his farm,
recently died, and now he will look
after his farm himself. Of Jonas's
section, he has 170 acres under cul
tivation. The C. B. & Q. R. R. Co, have
purchased lands at Denver, and it is
supposed that they will shortly be
gin the construction of an extension
to their line south of the Platte,
through the Republican country,
straight into the Chicago of the
Mountains. This will he quite an
advantage to those of our dealers
who make large shipments west, as
the proposed line will be able to
compete with the U. P. for this
carry.
The temperance meeting at the
Congregational Church last week
Tuesday evening was largely at
tended and the lecture by Miss
Frances E. Willard was successful
in every particular. It was able,
interesting and profitable. Her
visit will encourage the "Women's

this plnco to renewed efforts. Mi3?
Willard will be greeted with -even
a larger audience the next time she
cornea.
Messrs. Barker & Newman have
dissolved partnership. The former
will go to a place between the Loup
and the Platte, a few miles west of
the city, and tho latter somewhere
into Nance county. We hope that
they will still hold Columbus as
headquarters for the transaction of
the maiu features of their business.
"We commend them to the good poo

P. B. Holland and family of
O'Neill City, on their way to Vir
ginia Pit)', had a trunk stolon from
the U. P. platform last Sunday even
ing between six and seven o'clock.
They were intending lo take tho
night traiu which passes here at
1:30. The contents of tho trunk,
which they can illy afford to lose,
were valued at $ 1 00. It is to be
hoped that the thief or thieves will
be caught, though there is, as yet.no
clue that will load to their detection.
We lately received from tho
Agricultural department at Wash
ington a small sack of Egyptian
corn. We sec it stated that it nour
ishes finely through drouth or flood,
grows a stock, which is perfect
wood, about three feet high and as
large as a man's coat-sleove, and CO
bushels to the acre of a grain used
as rice, as coffee, or for fattening
slock. If one or two acres of it will
produce wood enough for a family's
use, it will be a very profitable
thing to grow on the western
prairies.
From Mr. W. II. Cotton, who
was iu the city yesterday, we learn
some further particulars of the de
structive fire in the western part of
the county on the 13th. Mr. Cotton
tells us he is informed that Larson
could not replace his loss for less
than $500; the gentleman who lives
on Iloopes's place lost a 3elf-binder,
worth $300; all the buildings but
the dwelling-home were destroyed;
Mr. Hodges, living near the Looking-glass
bridge, on the Olof Larson
farm, is said to have lost between
$100 and $500 worth of property.
During the fire the wind was blow
ing a gale, aud the fire was carried
over wide fire-breaks.
Gus Lockner was in Albion last
weok, and reports business in that
thriving burg as good. Graders
were at work on the line of the U.
P. towards Genoa, and it is expected
that the road will be completed at
least in time to move the next crop.
It would be a good thiug for Ne
braska people aud also, in the
"long-run" for Nebraska railroad
companies if every couuty-seat and
important town had railroad com
petition without boing taxed, cither
heavily or lightly, for the building
of the roads. To thrive well com
munities should have tho utmost
means of transporting their supplies
and products. Albion may reasona
bly expect a competing lino of rad.
The Library Association of
School Dist. No. 1 had a meeting
last Friday afternoon for the pur
pose of reviving the interest in the
association, and making addition to
the stock of books on hands. Tha
distinctive features of tho associa
tion are that its benefits arc accessi
ble by the voters aud pupils of Dist.
No. 1, to whom membership is limi
ted, the initiatory fee being 25 cts.
The library consists at present of
about 75 books, but it is hoped that
a more general interest will be
taken by the patrons of the school
and that a large increase may short
ly be made, both by donation and
purchase. There certainly is no
more commendable public enter
prise that the diffusion of knowledge
by means of a public library, the
larger the better, the more public
and general its benefits the better.
The voters and parents of Dist. No.
1 should remember to be present
next Friday evening.
Not Held.
The theme of local conversation
last week was the trial for alleged
poisoning instituted by C. H.Young
against L. Cockburn. The hearing
before Police Judge, G. G. Bowman,
took place on Friday and Saturday,
at the City Hall. The counsel for
the prosecution wero S. S. and Wm.
McAllister, and for the defence, J.
G. Higgins and M. Whitmoyer. The
case was ably conducted ou both
sides, showing skill in the examina
tion of witnesses aud in the argu
ment. Although we took pretty
complete notes of the hearing, we
do not consider it worth while to
give the testimony at length. It will
be remembered, as stated by the
Journal last week, that it was
alleged by the proscution thut Cock
burn gave a package of sugar to
Young which contained a quantity
of corrosive sublimate.
Accoiding to Young's testimony
tho sugar that he took, coming from
the sack, produced bad effects upon
himself, and afterwards, upon being
administered to some domestic ani
mals, either sickeued or killed them.
The sugar was received on the 21th
of last November, and he claims to
havo been diligently try ing ever
since to gel an analysis by compe
tent chemists to show the exact
amount of poison contained in tho
sugar.
Prof. Aughoy of Lincoln was put
upon the stand for this purpose and
testified that if the corrosive subli
mate had been distributed uniform
ly It would have taken 2,000 ouuecs
or 125 pounds of the sugar to con
tain enough of the poison to produce
death. It is only justice to the
prosecution to say that they did not
know beforehand, and had no inti
mation as to what (he testimony of
the professor would be, and it chang
ed materially their presentation of
(he case, necessitating them to adopt
the theory that the poison was put
upon the sugar at the top of tho bag,
and that what was sent the professor
was not nearly so strongly impreg
nated with tho poison. There was
no evidence adduced to show mali
ciousness on the part of the accused
toward the prosecuting witness, and
none to prove that he had anything
(o do with putting tho poison into
the sugar If any had been put in.
The judge, in rendoring his decis
ion, said that he didn't from the
evidence see any probable cati30 for
believing (he accused guilty of the
offence charged.

Messrs. Speice & North, real es
tate agents of this city, have done
an excellent thing in preparing for
sale a splendid map of the county
showing the location of all tho
towns, farms, Sec. It may he set
down as absolutely correct, in all
important particulars. W. L.
Wright of Omaha is tho draughts
man, and the lithographer., August
Cass & Co. of St. Louis. The work
on (he map is done in tho
best of style, and one of these, hand
somely mounted, should adorn the
walls of every farm-house and office
in (he county. We find it very val
uable for reference, aud have had
ours but a few days. Wn hope that
while these gentlemen will feel as
sured that they have done a public
good, they will havo purchasers
enough for their very handsome
map to justify them in still further
ventures in this Hue. Sold by
Speice & North, at their office on
11th st.
The A. Sc N. having been leased
to (he B. & M. for 999 years, and the
B. & M. having boon consolidated
with or merged into the C. B. & Q.,
it may now be taken for granted,
with reasonable assurance, that we
are to have, in the language of friend
Coffin, an ever-enduring competing
line. It seems to be the design of
this huge corporation to extend its
lines westward across the continent,
with lateral branches to every im
portant place. Columbus will soon
be connected with the trunk line;
Central City and Kearney aie
already connected; Fremont i3 ap
pealing for a lateral, and recently it
is said that a branch will be run
from tho north end of the Platte
river bridge near Columbus, to
Schuyler. Evidently, whatever
projects lie hid from present view,
tho O. B. & Q. arc extending their
lines into this section of Nebraska
with the intent of strengthening
thoir strongholds, and gottiug a
considerable share of the business.
There seems, so far, to be no
response to the call for (ho organi
zation of an independent political
party (so-called) in this county.
What are tho brethren about ? Why
don't they show their heads in the
arena? Come out. There is a
bright prospect for the man who
shall pro ye to be not too ambitious,
who will lead a middle column,
ready to throw its influence, its
votes, now on the Republican side,
now on tho Democratic, with a
listening ear toward each, and also
an open hand extended caoh way.
To be effective, however, this mid
dle column should contain at least
two hundred votes which can be
thrown solidly to any point. It has
long been cause for wonder to ua
that some bold, bad man has not
heretofore essayed to play this role
in Platte county politics.
Attention, Farmers.
I am determined to close out ray
Stock of Implements, and it will
pay yon to call and examine before
purchasing elsewhere.

The Couuly Central Committee
met at the Hammond Houso Satur
day ls(, pursuant (o call, the follow
ing members being -present: Johu
Hammond, member at large for the
couuly; Ed. Huare, Lost Creek
precinct; David Thomas, Looking
Glass; Geo. Trueman, Monroe; W.
U. Selsor, Granville ; Major Christ
mas, Burrows; II. Wilken, Sher
man; W. N. McCandlisb, Crcston;
M. K. Q'urner, Columbn3.
Mr. Hammond, chairman, stated
the object of the meeting, and urged
the importance of a thorough organ
ization of the party in Platte county
this fall, believing that it was in the
majority, if the entire vote could
be got out.
Tho committee, on motion, con
cluded to call the precinct caucusses
for the 8th day of May, and the
county convention on the 19th, the
day of the State convention, in order
that delegates from the country could
atteud both conventions, without
additioual expense.
The basis of apportionment agreed
upon was the vote last fall for coro
nor, it beiug thought that that rep
resented, nearer than any other, the
relative party strength in the sev
eral precincts.
On motion, tho several members
of the committeo were instructed to
prepare a list of voters of their res
pective precincts, classifying them
as republican, democratic and doubt
ful, aud that the samobe returned to
the chairman, John Hammond, Co
lumbus, by July 1, '80.
Other matters passed upon will be
found embodied in the call else
where printed.
