Looks like a Columbia light roadster frame, but with an earlier Lozier headbadge?

http://www.oldbike.eu/museum/?page_id=241

Lozier was bought out by Columbia, but later than 1891.

Couple of quick links, http://www.vintagecolumbiabikes.com/id65.html

Not the same model as yours, but informative, http://www.oldbike.eu/museum/?page_id=256
