Tlie Matter of Advertlnlnir the City In
I'ttniiilx-irit IWaicaziiie I1uhm-U and
Derided, And a Committee Will Se
led HnildluKrt lor Which tutu Will
Last night's rc-gula meeting of the
city council was an unusually inter
esting ni.d important one, much busi
ness coming up for consideration
Upon the roll call by the clerk, yiater
was found to be the only abent mem
ber, out bo came in l iter, lhe min
utes of l ust meeting were read, cor
rectod and approved, after which the
council went after the business which
came before it.
Cierk Kerr announced that he had
written to the chiefs of tho fire de
partments in Denver, Grand Island
and St. Louis, iu re jr iid to the lio-se
which those corporations h ive in ue,
but had received u repiv onlv from
the latter. Tho communication from
tho St. Louis lire chief enumerated
and dcrcribed the merits of t-eveial
brands of UO;0 in use down there.
Tho document was accented and
placed on file.
When the judiciary committee was
asU'ed if it had any business to brine
oeiore uio meewng, uummins, as
chairman, announced that thev had
iiain interviewed Jlr. Dovey in re
gard to tho Litter's damage suit
against the city. He said that Mr.
Dovey, upon being aled the extent
of the dam igo sustained, had ex
pressuu nimscui as m l oeing in lavor
of accepting any money consideration
under i(U no having brought suit
in the sum of $1000. The matter as
to what should be done in the pre
mises, occasioned some discussion.
Sattler moved that the committee be
riven further time to confer with Mr.
Dovey, in co junction with the city
attorney, and leport at the next meet
ing. Ji was thought in Ibis way an
agreement, favorable to all concerned,
could be reached. The motion p.e-
i he report of the police j idge and
city marshal were found coi rect and
ordered p!a- ed on file.
Mayor Gutt-eiie next announced the
council's readiness to take up unfin-
ln d lmsiuess, and invited the repre
sentative of Campbell's Illustrated
Journal to come forward and more
fully state his case. The gentleman
tated that since the speciaL meeting
he had written to Manager Campbell
n regard to the appropriation spoken
f, and that the manager had re-
guested him to withdraw the applica
tion if the city did not see its way
clear in the matter, and make the- fur
ther and more conservative propostion
that if the council would selecia com
mittee and decide upon what build
ings they wished cuts made of, the
magazine would have the cuts made
md furnish a write-up of the city in
its next issuo free of chargre. He
produced tho last number of the mag
azine, also the title page lor the one
next month, and noth showed artistic
workmanship. The representative said
that they had been greatly misrepre
sented in this city; that it could be
seen from the proposition he had just
made that instead of doing the city
harm his concern would be doing it
lasting good by the free advertising
it would receive. He assured the
council that the magazine for next
month would be nearly twice as large
as the present number or about 154
pages and stated that cuts would
positively be made of the B. & M.
hop buildings and appear in that
issue. In conclusion he asked the
co-operation of the council and the
merchants in general, and assured
them that the movement would be
a credit to Plattsmouth's institutions.
Sattler saw nothing wrong1 with this
proposition, and his motion to lay the
matter on the table for the present
to enable the gentleman to draw a
resolution of just what he wanted,
The report of the finance committee
was adopted, and, on motion of Lutz,
the clerk was instructed to draw war
rants for the amounts against thecitv.
The matter of purchasing new hose
was uejet taken up. Thei-e were ave
representatives of different hose manu
facturing companies present, e.ich
with a view of entering into a con
tract with the city. A communication
from the W. S. Knott company, of
New York,wi'.s first read by the clerk,
but on motion it was decided that no
hose propositions would Le considered
UDll"V ".conipanied by samples. It
was decideu iu. . t
, ,, ,, one representa
tive should address the eo-
time, the remainder to retire from Wo
room. The first spe.iker was T. S.
Clifford, who represented the B. F.
Gocdrich Co. Mr. Clifford quoted
prices, and warranted his hose to
stand a 400-pour.d pressure. Nexicame
a representative of the Boston Belting
Co., who also quoted prit.es acii spoke
about the good qualities cf his hose.
He said the entire Burlington system
used hose manufactured by the con
pany ho represented, and he thought
that was sufficient recommendation.
The Maltese Cross Co', representa
tive came next, after which the: cp-
resentative of Daw?on & Cole Bros,
appeared. Each produced samples
and quoted prices. The last speaker
was hero in the interests of the New
York Bolting & Tacking Co. Ho
said he represented the manufacturer
direct an advantage over a great
many salesmen which fact, he said,
enabled him to quote very low prices.
Among several other samples of dif
ferent brands of hose, he displayed
and talked about the "Keystone"
hose, which was guaranteed to last a
very reasonable length of time. The
price of the latter brand of hose was
80 cents per foot.
When the last speaker had finished,
Ilerola moved that tho city purchase
500 feet of the "Keystone" hose.
White thought it best to find out firt
exactly how much hoso was needed
before placing a contract, but after
diacussinir tho matter at length in
which the chief of the fire depart
ment was consulted in regard to the
condition and amount of hoso on hand
lleroid s motion prevaileu unani
mously, and the citv will enter into
a contract for 500 feet of hose with tho

pany a nozzle and couplings to be
furnished free of charge.
Tho resolution which the Campbell
magazine representative was re
quested to draft was next presented.
read by the clerk and adopted, and
Messrs. Sattler, Ilerold and llabei
appointed as a committee.
After Joe Warga had been granted
permission to work out some poll tax
near his place of residence, a motion
to adjourn prevailed.
The County Aloney
The county treasurer todav let out
the county funds to tho banks which
bid the highest, as follows: First Na
tional, $13,000; Bank of Cass County,
$15,000; Bank of Commerce, $3,000;
First National bank of. "Weeping Wa
ter, $5,000. ' The banks only pay 3 per
cent interest on tho above amounts
for the coming year. This will leave
on account of a foolish law enacted bv
tho hist legislature, several thousand
dollars which must remain idle in the
vaults, because tho law says a bauk
cannot borrow over 30 per cent of its
capital stock, no matter how good a
bond it might give.
With a large sum of money in the
vault the commirsioners will have to
hire a special guard to take charge of
it every night a tine condition of af

The Christian Church Crowded.
Fully 400 people attended the
Baptismal service at the Christian
church last evening, and many were
unable to gain admitancc. Rev.
