Regular Meeting: of the City
Council a Lengthy One.
Mayor Parmal Makes a Neat Little
Speech In Which He Brit fly Outline
the Coarse Which Be Proposes to Par
sae Doting Bis Term of Office Notes
of the Meeting-.
All members were present at the
regular meeting' of the city council
last evening. The session was a long
and tedious one, lasting nearly two
After the reading of the minutes of
the last meetine, Clerk Kerr read a
communication fiom the New York
Belting and Packing company, stating
that a balance cf $415.70 was now due
the company for hose furnished the
city. On motion the matter was re
ferred to the finance committee.
A petition from the Coal Hill Coke
and Mining company of Missouri, giv
ing their prices for coal, was referred
to the light committee.
The petition signed by a number of
taxpayers, asking that some grading
be done on Oak street, west of Tenth
and leading up to Mt. Olive church,
was, on motion of Sattler, referred to
the committee on streets, alleys and
Report of Treasurer Cook was re
ferred to the finance committee.
Sattler again brought up the Sixth
street pavement matter. He thought
Contractor Fanning ought to repair
the pavement before he received the
. balance of his claim, as he had found a
contract, signed by Mr. Fanning,
which practically made him liable for
the repairs. Said contract guaranteed
the pavement for five years, and if the
city was not given thirty days' notice
before the expiration of the same, the
sum of 5 per cent was to be deducted
from the sum due the contractor. As
Fanning had not given the required
notice, he thought the provisions of
the contract ought to be enforced.
Tho clerk was instructed to write Mr.
Fanning in regard to the matter.
The police committee found the re
ports of the police judge and city mar
shal as correct.
Sidewalk matters were next on the
program, and quite a number of re
pairs in this line were ordered made.
The finance committee reported that
they had examined the books of the
city treasurer and found the same cor
rect. The? had also found that Clerk
Kerr's books corresponded with those
of the treasurer. On motion, the re
ports were placed on file.
The report of the finance committee
on the claims against the city was ap
proved, and the clerk instructed to
draw warrants for the same.
There being no other business, it
was next suggested that the bonds of
the new city officials be considered.
There was some discussion as to the
legality of accepting the bonds at the
present meeting, Sattler contending
that yesterday was a legal holiday. In
the absence of City Attorney Beeson,
Charley Grimes was called upon to
quote from the statutes of the state of
Nebraska in regard to this question.
Hedidnot think it would conflict in
the least with the law to accept the
bond 8. A ballot was taken on Mr.
Sattler's motion to postpone the mat
ter and hold a special meeting tonight,
and was lost by a vote of 9 to 1 .
Bonds of Mew City Officials.
The bonds of the new city officials
were then approved. The amounts of

Mayor Richey then called the new
members forward, and after tho clerk
had administered the oath of office, the
old council adjourned.
Mayor Parmele's Message.
After the new members had taken
their seats. Mayor Parmele called the
council to order and made the follow
ing neat little address:
To the Honorable Members of the
Cltv Council: I suppose it is custo
mary for a new mayor usually to make
an address to the council. I will have
to apologize for my inefficiency in that
line; I have not been an office-holder
and have not had much practice. I
have a few words to say to you, how
ever. Your honorable body, as I believe,
is composed of citizens who were
chosen at an election to serve as coun
cilman, cease to be distinguished as

but thank for their labor in admiuiE
tering ihe affairs of the city, yet I b -lieve
with proper work we can improve
in all things. I wish to state that I hope
1 can always act in perfect harmony
witn the council, and that any appoint
ments which it will be my duty to
make as mayor, I will consider none
that will not be entirely satisfactory to
the whole council. I have my com

Cemetery Bich, Schlater, Neu
mann. Gas and Electric Light Whelan,
I wou'd like to say a few words to
tho lieenso committee. I understand
that heretofore the saloon men have
been in the habit of payicg their li
censes only part at a timo. I do cot
wish to work any hardship upon the
saloon men, but I think they ought to
pay that down that is tho whole
thousand dollars. The city already
has outstanding warrants drawing 7
per cent interest, and this is a matter
of two or three hundred dollars, much
of which could be saved if these li
censes were paid down, and it is the
same as if the city was paying that
per cent for the benefit of these men,
and if they are supposed to pay this
license they ought to pay it at once,
and it ought not to be discounted, which
amounts to over two hundred dollars.
They certainly would not ask the city
to take a note for it if it was not gilt
edged, and I see no reason why they
cannot borrow the money from some
other person rather than oe borrowing
it from the city, and thus give the city
the benefit of that much interest.
The Electric Light Work.
I have investigated and inquired
around a good deal about the lighting
and gas and found that thero are sev
eral kinds of subscribers to the gas
and electric light. There is one kind
that pay for half the light they getj
and another kind that do not pay for
any of the light they get. There is
another kind that do not pay their
bills, but their bills do not call for
more than half the lights they burn.
I do not know that all of these are
facts, but in a few cases I absolutely
know it to be true. I also understand
that the city clerk has been in tho
habit of collecting these bills. I do
not think it is the duty of the clerk to
do this. When a corporation owns a
plant of this kind the patrons have to
go to the office and p ly their bills.
If they do not they do not tret the
light. I have a suggestion to make
and it is this: At the first meetiLg
every month the superintendent or
clerk prepare a list of all tho lij;ht
takers who have not paid for their
light for the proceeding month; that
this list be handed to the superinten
dent of the electric light plant and all
those who fail to pay for their month's
light before the loth of the following
month the city shall discontinue the
service I thintc this is the only way
to run the plant on a basis to collect
the bills without any trouble. As long
as the city owns tho plant wo ought to
be as rigid in collecting the bills as we
are in collecting taxes. Tf one man
gets his light for nothing the whole
town pays for it.

TESTING AN ORDINANCE
Case of the City of Plat ts mouth
vs. Steve liuzzell.
Defense Claims That the Ordinance Pro
hibiting the Placing of Telephone
Poles and Stringing Wires on Main
Street Is Void, and the Same Is Sns.
talned Uy the Conrt.
From Monday's daily.
The case wherein Steve Buzzell is
charged with stringing wires on Main
street for the Nebraska Telephone
company, in violation of an ordinance
passed and approved by the city coon
cil on November 27, 1899, was on trial
today before Justice Archer.
Section 4 of said ordinance says that
"any person erecting telephone poles
or stringing wires upon telephone
poles on Main street, between First
and Seventh, in the city of Platts
mouth, in violation of section 1 of this
ordinance, shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and on conviction
thereof shall be fined in the Bum not to
exceed $100 nor less than $5." While
tho defense admits having strung
wires on Main street, as charged, it is
their contention that the statutes of
the state of Nebraska grant them the
right of way over the higbways of tho
state, which includes the streets of
the city of Plattsmouth, regardless of
any ordinance which the council
might make to the contrary. Another
contention is that the city council
specifically granted the Nebraska Tele
phone company a franchise, and that
the company made valuable and exten
sive improvements thereunder, and
thereby its right to the use of the
streets being vested and could not be
altered or abridged by any subsequent
action of the council that for these
reasons the ordinance under which Mr.
Buzzell is being prosecuted is void.
The attorneys concluded their argu
ments at 4 o'clock and Judge Archer,
after briefly reviewirg the testimony,
rendeied a decit-ion in favor of the de
fense. Attorneys C. S. Polk and Mitthew
Gering appeared for tho defense and

Fatal Effect of Fretting the Animals ou
Stockmen frequently tuffer losses of
cattle from pasturing them on sor
ghum. In a few herds in tbostato the
losses last year were heavy, but the
total number of fatalities was not
alarmingly large. An unusually large
acreage of cane was pastured last sea
son, so that the loss sustained was rel
atively small, judging from reports re
ceived. Just what the cause of the trouble is
has never been ascertained. The pre
vailing opinion is that a viruently
poisonous substance i sometimes de
veloped by the growing plant. Many
symptoms shown by the afflicted cattle
tend to sust'tin such an opinion. Tho
animals bloat but little. They appar
ently suffer terribly and die very sud
denly. Por-t mortem examinations are
reported to show lesions in the
stomach, the membranes turning black.
A sample of cane that had produced
fatal results was obtained and sub
jected to a careful chemical analysis.
All elTo; ts, however, to isolate and
identify poisonous matter failed ut
terly. Although an elTort was made
to detect the presene.i of toxic sub
stances in etna!! quantities, it was as
sumed thv.t refined delegate tests for
traces of such poison were really un
necessary, from the nature of the case.
A poison that kill a full grown animal
in ten or fifteen minutes must neces
sarily bo present in relatively laree
proportions. The analysis showed
only a trace of pot as ,u in nitrate. Cul
tures mule to develop toxic bacteria
from tho sample gavo negativo results.
The leaves and stems of tho material
seemed to bo free from parasitic
growth. No poisonous matter, that
might have been applied purposely to
the leaves, was detected.
All tho data collected indicates
plainly that the first growth sorghum
may prove, at times, to be just as fatal
as second growth. This controverts
the prevailing popular impression but
facts at hand nevertheless corroborate
such a view. It is in with what is
known of the chemistry of all plants.
The chemical substances found in plant
tissues aro characteristic of tho plant
and are found in its various stages of
The results of tho investigation in
dicate then, first, that in sorgbum
there is no inherent chemical poison,
and second, that second growth cane,
of itself, is no more injurious than first
growth. The fact that bo many fatal
ities occur prove that there is an ele
ment of danger in using sorghum for
pasturage, and that considerable care
should be taken in feeding; it. Stock
men generally are agreed that hungry
cattle should not bo turned on to sor
ghum pasture, even for a short time.
