The PIattmouth Schools Ob
serve The Day.
DECIDED IN FAVOKOF 1'LAINTIrF.
Attorney Cering Jubilant Over the
Decision of Judge Miner of the
Federal Court of Utah--Minor
To-day was appropriately cele
brated as Arbor day by the city
schools. The sun shone bright and
clear to-day, but aa it had been
raining all 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
bad been gone through with the
whole school marched 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
wchol irs were quiet "Arbor Day"
was sung by the entire school,
which was followed by a declama
tion by a little girl from Miss Cook's
room. The High School Quartette
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 tree.
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.
yuite 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
appropriate ceremonies. :

The recurrence of Arbor da3'
found the children of the several
rooms assembled in the hall of St.
John's school, where an elaborate
program was satisfactorily ren
dered before" an appreciative audi
ence. At its conclusion all formed into
ranks and marched to the grounds,
where an appropriate address was
delivered by Rev. Father Carney at
the tree-planting, iji which he drew
a beautiful comparison between the
growth of the tree and that of the
The Arbor day exercises con
cluded at 11 o'clock, when the mem
bers of the children's choir pro
ceeded to the music rooms of the
convent where another very inter
esting program was carried out by

did ample justice to a sumptuous
lunch, dispersing at an early hour,
carrying with them pleasant mem
ories of April 1892.

Among the various rumors that
float from mouth to mouth we
gather that Dick Barr will again
push the quill, this time at Elm
wood. He is to begin his duties
Monday, and while some say that
he will conduct an alliance paper,
others inform us that he will make
it a point to boom the town, with
the ultimate view of moving the
county seat to that point. At any
rate he takes charge of the Elm
wood Leader. If Dick will give his
readers extracts each week from his
biographical sketch in the history
of Cass and Otoe counties he will
have no trouble in working up a
splendid circulation. Success to
the new venture. Weeping Water
Decided in Favor of Plain. ?ff.
Attorney Gering received infor
mation that Judge Minor, of Utah,
had rendered a decision in the case
of Danniher vs. the A. O. U. W. for
$2,XX) in favor of plaintiff. In the A.
O. U. W. order all assessments are
made payable on or before the 2Sth
of the month. . In this case the as
sessment was not pail until the30th.
The matter was left to a board of
arbitration who decided in favor of
defendant. Attorney 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 Gering 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 Stales supreme court before
it is finally settled, as it is one. of
importance to insurance orders.

Duncan Clark's Minstrels.
The performance given at the
opera house last night by Duncan
Clark's Female Minstrels was wit
nessed by it large audience. Not a
person in the audience left dissatis

thing but suggestive of vulgarity.
Duncan Clark is a gentleman who

While the above article appeared
in livening News ot .pril lu as
a.i item of newt, it was written
ostensibly for another purpose.
The article is erroneous and the
editor of the News knew it while
penning it. The learned gentle
man, who still owes his allegiance
to Her Brittanic Majesty, yueen
V ictoria I, and who presides over
the Hunctuiii sanctoriiim of that
piece of paper known within the
sacred precincts of the city of
Plattsmouth as the "Evening News,"
rue kill the small amount of nothing
ness contained within the compass
of his Nti. 5 hat in order to find
some means whereby lie might
bring the undersigned into ridicule,
and the above article is the result.
His Brittanic Lordship, though a
learned gentleman, does not 'seem
to be aware of the fact (if history
chronicles correctly) that the Eng
lish king, Harold II, son of Earl
Godwin, was a cow-herder, and
the son of a cow-herder; and
that had it not been for
the French blood instilled into
the nation by William the Con
queror and his Norman-French fol
lowers, literary England would
to-day be nothing but a nation of
cow-herders: but as it is, many of
your English brethren still retail
their love lor the business, and are
o-day feeding their herds on the
thousand hills of Australia and the
verdant plains of the Americas.
Now then, in order to prevent his
English highness from becoming a
ravine: maniac, for the want of
something else to say in my behalf,
I will this dajr endeavor to give him
a short sketch of my own personal
history. You will observe that there
is a time when man must unhesi
tatingly account for his antecedents.
While I not not responsible for
my existence, yet I am thankful to
my Creator for the same. Many
other things I have to be thankful
for, one of which is that I was born
in a log house, it being one of the
requisites of a great . man. Of
course the house was an extraordi-
nary good one, being chinked.

so high up into the mountains, I
am necessarily high bred. I am

a good examination and was pro
moted. My next step was into the
mercantile dry goods business and
there I performed my duties in an
honorable and business like man
ner. The professor said: "George,
ascend the ladder a trifle higher aud
there you will find a blackboard.
Upon that board you will find a list
of names of all the different occupa
tions of man's life and there, in.,
boy, I wish for you to select the oc
cupation you wish to follow, wheth
er it be a profession or trade." Up
on the blackboard I found, as de
scribed by the professor, all the way
from the bootblack and five cent
newspaper business to the highest
and most popular professions and
trades commonly known on the face
of the earth. You will observe my
choice was the iewelrv business.
Having served thirteen years in this
line I believe that I am competent
and qualified to earn my living'
without the aid of a slip of a paper
called the "Evening News,"
and consider myself a practical
man in my line. Although de
pressed, financially, my name has
sounded as far as the east is from
the west, and I also have quite a
reputation as a spring poet in Eng
land, especially amongst the lower
class, the relatives of our kid-glove
Burtou as the Evening News is
the only popular American paper
subscribed for in'that country. I
will admit that I was born without
a "silver spoon in my mouth." Yet
it is not a disgrace to be born in
that deplorable condition, although
very inconvenient at times. And
furthermore, I positively deny ever
having said that thejkid-glove edi
tor of the Evening News drifted in
to Plattsmouth without a dollar in
his pocket aud sawed wood at
hotel for his board; also deny ever
having said that a certainclass of
3-oung men donated certain sums of
money for the purpose ofjbuj-ing
him a suit of clothes. I also deny
making a statement to the effect
that at one time he was engaged at
menial labor as a helper in the
B. & M. lumber yard. As
for me, I am one that will
not cast rellections upon a
mans personal affairs through enmi

would cut my pen feathers by class
ing me withjthose who earn their

A man can be honorable no matter
what occupation he may follow in
the way of labor; wejmust labor to
be honorable, and I am proud to
say that I am a laboring man and
feel highly elated to be classed by
the editor of the News with tha
honorable class of peoplejthat la

G. F. S. Burton considers himself
above the average laboring man
would simply suggest that he re
