Last night at the meeting of the
council Mr. Murphy made a motion that
a special committee be appointed to in

for a new city hall and immediate action
be taken in this matter of building a
council chamber, hose house and city
jail combined. This motion met with
A hearty approval from every member of
the council and we are glad to see such
earnestness manifested in this nutter.
There is nothing a city the size of Platts
mouth needs more than such a buildipg
and we hope that the matter will be
pushed until a building of this kind is
secured and the city be 6aved of paying
rest for halls and such other expenses as
this would save. The building and
everything complete med not cost over
ten thousand dollars, and this would give
a building which the city need not be
ashamed of. Why not build a city hall

The Prohibition Convention.
The prohibition eonveution which
meets at Indianapolis on tomorrow
promises to be the largest eyer held in
the history of the party. A great many
predictions are being made by the leaders
of that party in regard to the vote that
will be cast in November. Below wc
give some of the facts on which they
base their predictions:
"From 400,000 to half a million votes
is about the figure that, in the opinion of
old veteran campaigers, like Samuel
Dickie of Michigan, chairman of the
national committae, the prohibition ticket
will poll in November. Five thousand
six hundred voters deposited their ballots
for the cold water candidates in 1873
and 9,700 in centennial year. The ticket
of 1880, headed by Neal Dow, received
10,000 yotes in fifteen states, but in 1884
fifteen times that number "were cast in
thirty-four for St. John aud Dauiels.
During the last two years, however, there
hii3 been elections in thirty of these states,
in which state prohibition tickets have
been voted upon and the aggregate of
the votes is 287,000. It is upon these
figures that the prophets of tl-e purty
predict their opinion of what will be
shown net JJoyeniber. There has been
great activity all along the prohibi
tion line for the past year, and especially
in the south, where Sam Small, who is
upon tha pay roll of the national com
mittee, has been working with might and
main to bring local option element into
accord with the national luoremtftt.
As to the political parties from which
the increased strength is to be drawn,
Chairman Dickie says "We w)U make
the largest gains in the north from the
republicans aud in the south fram the
democrats Temperance sentiment in the
states south of the Mason and Dixon's
line of growing and deepening. This is
especially true in Georgia. In the north
our principal support will be drawn
from the republican ranks, a great many
temperance men of that party being dis-
. . . . t - j. . . i , : . :
satisnea wiin its equivocal jjuihuu vu
the temperance question. Iu Michigan,
especially, the republicans will lose
heavily from the fact that they voted
agaiast a constitutional amendment and
passed a local opiion law which has just
been declared unconstitutional,"
