It don't soem tojnako any difference
whether a lady is employed in a work
shop or an office, a refining influence is
always evident among the employes or
the surroundings. This is especially no
ticeable in the transformation of what
was once a dirty, musty, official apart
ment of this city, that was stored full of
mouldy-looking ledgers, into a clean at
tractive place for transacting business.
Mr. W. L. Tucker called in our office
today and showed us his book ia whi'h
he has kept the condition of the weather
for a number of years back, and on the
28th of March for the past four years it
has not varied more than three degrees,

four inches of snow, and the next day
five-eighths of an inch of snow fell. The
thermometer registers just the same today
as it did on the same date last year.
The case of J. M. Schnellbacher vs.
Jones & Fitzgerald, tried in county court
before a jury yesterday, resulted in a
verdict of 40 for the plaintiff. The
amount sued for was $173. The case
was contested with earnestness and skill

"Mr. Voss the architect is in the city

Journal. Mr. Voss may have said so,
but it's not so. Mr. Fitzgerald telegraph
ed from Lincoln for M. Voss to meet him
at Plattsmouth and as Mr. Fitzgerald did
not get any reply to his telegram he did
not come. Mr. Voss did, but it was not
in connection with any "structure adjoin
ing the opera house." We will inform
our readers concerning Mr. Voss's mys
terious visits in doe time.
Last Sunday will be long remember

of them is a school teacher and was guid

of town.- After they Lad transacted their

"The gieivance committees of the varT
ious lodges of B. of S. T. fc B. L. K. It.
the "Q." system met at their head quar
ters Wednesday afternoon at 2:30, March
21, for the purpose of considering and
taking steps in regard to the partialities
now in existenpeon that road, between
the main line and branch and side-tracks;
the meeting being in response to a call
from Pres. Rustyrail. There were 105 of
the membsrs of the association present.
The afternoon, until 5:30, was taken up
in speeches, laying cut the complaints
and questions to be acted upon; speeches
were made by Messrs. Frog, Creston;
Stoneballost, Plattsmouth; Spike, Bur
lington, and F. P. Tie, of Minneapolis.
At 5:30 the meeting adjourned to meet
at 7 o'clock.
"Promptly at 7 o'clock p. in., Pres.
Rustyrail called the convention to order,
and a committee ef eight was appointed
to draw up resolutions. The committee
consisted of Messrs. J. T. Roadbed, llast

sented the following resolutions, which
were adopted without alteration :
Whereas, It is a greivous fact that
there is a wide discrimination on the
great "Q" system between the side tracks
and branch roads and the main lines, and
we, the factors of such side-tracks and
branch roads, failing to see a just cause
of such discrimination, do hereby
Resolve, That we shall endeavor to in
duce an abandonment of this discrimin
ation and have one road brought ia the
same appreciation as another; aud
Whereas, The discrimination consists
largely in the abandonment of the side
tracks and branch roads, aud the using
of a better rail on the main road, and the
permitting of empty and freighted cars
to remain upon us,so that our bright faces
which are the rails are obliterated
by rust for want of use, and the heavy
cars upon us shade us from a view of
the sunlit skies by day, and the star-
spangled firmament by night, and which
vision supplies a joy unspeakable, be it
Resolved, That we demand that the
volume of traffic on side tracks and
t 1 ... a
Diane a roaas do increased until it be
equal to that of the main line in all res
Whereas, The company cannot trans
act business without our aid, we, the
side tracks and branch roads do
Resolve, That if a chance is not
brought about by April 1st, 1888, which
shall coincide with onr wishes, that at
noon of the aforesaid day we shall lock
eur switches and refuse to further trans
net company business, at least till our de
mands are satisfied.
Whereas, Beins in sympathy with
our brethren, the factors f the main line,
who are compelled under the present
plan to do much more than by right be
falls them in the transportation of freight,
Whereas, Much of the freight is un
limited as to time, be it
Resolved, That we invite the factors
of the main line to cooperate with us in
oureffoit to obtain our just portion of
traffic; and that in place of standing un
limited freight upon side tracks, it shall
be run out over branch lines and returned
for the purpose of keeping things in mo
tion and insuring the lightness of branch

Treat All Alike-
At the lost meeting ef the city council
an ordinance was passed in regard to the
volunteer fire department of this city.
It was ordered that the chief be paid
$100 per annum, tae assistant chief $25
per annum and the secretary $50 per
annum. This is causing a great deal of
dissatisfaction among the rank and. file
of the department, and they say let
the department be a paid department or
a volunteer department. They don't
want any distinctions to be made only in
the case of the secretary, who they say
should get paid. A petition to that ef
fect will be banded to the city council
next week, and if they don't approve of
it the wLole of the hose companies and
the book and ladder company will hand
ia their resignations.

The following has reference to the dis
trict court now in session at Council
"During the afternoon session the case
of Carruth vs. the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy railroad was on trial. This is
a damage casein which the plaintiff asks
$20,000 from the road on account of the
death of Frank Carruth. Mr. Carruth
was a conductor on the road in 1884, and
was running a passenger train int Pa
cific Junction. His train was backing
and a collision was about to take place.
He rushed to the rear platform and pull
ed the bell rope to signal the engineer to
stop the train. The rope broke aad he
fell from the platform and was run over
and killed." Omaha Herald.
Poor Frank! Our belief in spiritulism
becomes more cenSrraed. Instead of
Frank Carruth it should have read
"George Foster," Frank's brother-in-law,
who was killed while a conductor some
years ago on a passenger train running
between Omaha aud Pacific Junction.
Mrs. Foster, the plaintiff, is now in
Council Bluffs attending the trial.
