RALLY OF THE BOOSTERS
The boosters' rally at the tabernacle
building last evening was attended
by Ave or six hundred, quite a num
ber of whom were ladles and while a
number of business men who should
have been there were not nevertheless
the meetilng was a representative gath
ering of those who favor boosting
North" Platte. The cornet band kind
ly donated its services, and rendered
several selections on the streets and
several in the building. As a program
opener the Yeoman drill team in their
natty uniforms gave the manual of
I arms, the stage being too small to per
f mlt of drill movements. J
i The speaker for the occasion was
John L. Kennedy, of Omaha, former
congressman from the Omaha district,
an old-time resident of that city, and
ono who has given freely of his time
and monoy for the advancement of
. the Nebraska metropolis. Secretary
Temple, of the Chamber or Commerce,
had written the Omalia Commercial
Club, asking if they could send us a
sneaker for this occasion, anu Air
Kennedy was sent, his expenses being
borne by the Omaha organization. Mr.
Kennedy was introduced by President
Secberger, of the Chamber or com
merce, and gave the most practical
talk along the line of civic Improve
ment and town boosting that the epo
ple of North Platte havo over heard.
During the day Mr. Kennedy had been
driven over the city and through tho
country surrounding the town and-lur-ing
this drlvo he, with keen discern
ment, noticed some of our lame points
as well as good features. He was
therefore In position to talk upon local
conditions, and among tho phases con
sidered was the exclusion of dump
ing grounds along tho highways and
the beautifying of the city, tho need
of naved streets, tho necessity or nev
ter drainage, the need of a hotel, which
ho understood was soon to bo erected,
the nroner advertiseng of the city in
order to bring additional people here,
and to attract the establishing or m
dustrles suitablo to the country. To
secure these ends there must be an or
ganization such as the Chamber of
Commerce, and that organization must
bo backed by the people, not only by
their moral sunnort but financially as
well. North Platte had a splendid fu
ture, but the town would always bo
just as thecltlzens made it. All tho
people should .have fc.Mli in tho town,
it should not be "my" town, but "our"
As a matter of Interest to the wholo
state. Mr. Kennedy favored the develop
mont of tlietwater power of the Platte
and Loup rivers, and tho making of
the Missouri river a navigable stream.
. Mr. Kennedy's talk was a practical
one, and unquestionably he scattered
seeds that will germinate and grow.
creating a greater "booster" spirit.
Tho president then introduced Miss
Annie Kramph, who spoke on local
conditions In her customary expressive
way; the need of a publicity fund, and
also touched on tho subject which ap
peals to her so strongly and should to
all of us a greater recognition of
our boys and girls, who will bo the
men and women of tomorrow.
Secretary Temple followed with a
UiJk on the! membership campaign
and the publicity fund, and following
his remarks donations to the publicity
fund were solicited. The amount sub
scribed at the meeting was $1,390.
