A Case In Court.
Suit has been commenced in cotin
ty court by Charles K. Shaw con
testing the election of J. Ross Barr.
The facts of the case are as follows:
lu the village of Greenwood on the
fifth day of April an election was
held for the purpose of electing
fire trustees. The other three mem
bers were elected and J. Ross Barr
and Charles K. Shaw each received
41 votes apiece according to the re
turns. A certificate of election
was given to J. Ross Barr, he
already being an incumbent.
Charles K. Shaw alleges that
there were five votes counted for
Barr that should have been counted
fwr him, and that he is positive of
the same. If the allegations of
Shaw are true the vote stands Shaw

ARBOR DAY OBSERVED.
The Plattsmouth Schools Ob
serve The Day.
DKCIDED IN FAVOKOF I'LAIMUF.
Attorney Cerlng Jubilant Over the
Decision of Jurtgo Minor of the
Federal Court of Utah--M.nor
t-'roiii Friday' Daily.
To day was appropriately cele
brateil as Arbor day by the city
schools. The sun shone bright and
clear to-day, but as it had been
raining nil week and the ground
was thorougly soaked with water,
the air was raw and cold.
The biggest part of the exercises
were omitted at the high school
building'. But as soon as school
was taken up and thcusual exercises
had been gone through with the
whole school inarched out to the
music of the drums and formed on
each side of the place where the elm
tree wa to be planted, it being the
tree that the entire school had
chosen as the state tree. When the
schol u s were quiet "Arbor i Daj"
was snug by the entire school,
which was followed by a declama
tion by a little girl from MissCook's
room. The High School Ouartctte
then sang a beautiful piece, after
which a scholar from each room
stepped to the front and, speaking
a verse, threw a shovellul of dirt on
the roots of the tret'.
As soon as the exercises were
over the scholars were all dis
missed for the day and each room
gathered together and in different
parts of the school yard planted a
special tree to represent each room.
Ouite a large number of the citi
zens were out to witness the plant
ing of the trees by the children.
At all of the ward schools there
were trees and shrubs planted with

rooms assembled in the hall of St.

program was satisfactorily ren
dered beforej.an appreciative audi
ence. At its conclusion all formed into
ranks and marched to the grounds,
where an appropi iate address was
delivered by Rev. Father Carney lit

growth of the tree and that of the

cluded at 11 o'clock, when the mem

did ample justice to a sumptuous

Decided in Favor of Plaintiff.
Attorney tiering received infor
mation that Judge Minor, of Utah,
had rendered a decision in the case
of Danniher vs. the A. O. 1 1. W. for
$2,000 in favor of plaintiff. In the A.
(). U. W. order all assessments are
made payable on or before the 2Slh
of the month. In this case Hie as-
sessinent was not pai until thellOth.
The matter was left to a board of
arbitration who decided in favor of
defendantAttorney Gering brought
suit in the federal court of Utah,
claiming that a matter could not be
arbitrated without the consent of
both parties. Judge Minor looked
at the matter in the same light and
rendered a verdict ;for the full
amount. Judge Minor only had the
case under advisement three days
Attorney tiering speaks very highly
of Judge Minor. The case will in
all probability be taken to the su
preme court and from there to the
United States supreme court before
it is finally settled, as it is one of
importance to insurance orders.

SHOT ON HIS WAY HOME.
Somo Unknown Man Shot Al
O'Neil Last Night.

Mr. O'N, II Mas a Lucky Escape From
What M nht H.ivo Caused It -tMnt
n a 44-Calitn e.
Last night, between 11 am' 12
o'clock, Al O'Neil was shot by some
man to him unknown.
Mr. O'Neil started home, having
in his possession several pairs of
shoes, and while walking along
Lincoln' avenue he was overtaken
near Frank I lager's residence by
the man who done the shooting.
Mr. O'Neil's story is as follows:
lie says that the man when he
passed him was muttering some
thing that hecoul 1 not underst uid;
that the fellow had a bundle under
each arm and as he passed by and
when only a few feet in front of him,
he (ired a shot toward the ground.
The fellow seemed to be carrying
the revolver in his hand or in his
pants pocket, for he fired the shot
without moving his arm. The man
then walked on about ten feet and
turned around and asked O'Neil
what he was following him for, also
statmg at the same time that if he
took another step he would kill him
O'Neil told him that he was not fol
lowing him; that he was going home;
tliat he cnly lived a short distance
from where they were and that if
he killed him he would kill an in
nocent man. The man then started
to go, as did also O'Neil. but the
fellow turned and fired two shots,
the first one just grazing O'Neil's
head and the next one striking him
about three inches to the right of
the left nipple. After filing the
shots the man started on the run
toward August Bach's store.
Dr. Schildknecht was called and
dressed the wound. The ball en
tered the left breast and, striking
a bone, glanced and went around
and was taken out at his back, just
above the left kidney. The revolver
was a No. 4 1.
August Bach heard the shot and
got up and went to the window and
saw the fellow running up towards
his bam. Mr. Bach asked him who
he was and says he could not quite
understand the man but under
stood him to say his name was
Burke. Mr. Bach says he thought
that bespoke broken Ivnglish, and
also stated that some one was try
ing to kill him.
This morning when Mr, Bach b
delivery boy went to the barn to
feed the horses he found the revol
ver lying near the barn, The ball
that Dr. Schildknecht took from the
wound exactly fitted the revolver
Mr. O'Neil had not been drinking
last night and says that if he would
see the man he would know him as
the shooting occurred under the
arch light on the avenue. Dr.
Schildknecht said that he was pos
itive that O'Neil had not been
drink'nir, fotifhehad he could of

A man was arrested last night and )

About noon Win. Plager, a young
man that drives the delivery wagon
for Zuckwiller & Lutz, was taken

times are right some sensational

If one may form an opinion of the
merits of the local ball club from
their preliniinory work yesterday
at the ball park it would be that
they are all winners. It was prac
tically their first day out on the
green sward and they took only u
little general practice, but that was
sufficient to show their metal.
Maupin, Long, Kennedy, Johnson,
John Patterson, Myers and Sam
Patterson showed up especially
well. Fretz showed a lack of ex
perience but will no doubt blossom
out as well as the rest of the bovs
with a few weeks' work. Yapp
practiced a little pitching and
showed that he still has good con
trol of that drop ball that beat Hast
ings. Myers pitched a few balls
over the plate and, after he hail
warmed up a little, he couldn't be
touched. Perrine pitched a little
while but was wild as a steer.
When begets 'em over they come
like cannon balls, though.
On Sunday the "winners" will try
and scatter Jack Carrigan's Hayj
dens over the green earth. The
1 la j dens came near scalping Nor
man liaker at Fremont last Sunday
and may come near doing the boys
up tomorrow on account of lack of
practice. They have a strong team
and play good ball, Arthur
Creighton isdvertise 1 to catch for
them but the Omaha papers have
him down to catch for a team in
Omaha that day, so Swartz will
probably catch Snyder. Keeves
was to have pitched for Plattsmouth
but he has not arrived and cither

A large and enthusiastic meeting
of the boys who will make up the

team, was held at the opera house

will be begun in earnest. The show
