BIG OltOWJI at Tin: 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.

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" town. 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.
