Born has only owned the property a
short time, moving in from his fine

are so great that he feels that he can
not afford tfi. tax.way especially as
he owns one of the finest farm prop
erties in Cass county.

their friends at their home on lower

State and National Conventions
at Omaha This Week At- ,
tract Large Crowds.
Past President-John J. Ryder, Om
aha. President-Jule Althaus Omaha.
Vice President-Charles A. Tracy,
Benson. ( '
Secretary -J. M. Tanner, South Om-J
Treasurer-Russell E. Danders, Chad-

Guard-T. L. Walker, McCook.
Outer Guard-M. M. Green, Norfolk.
Trustee-C. H.' Christiansen, Fre
mont; R. II. Schwitzer, Lincoln; Dr. A.
J. Ames, North Platte.
These are the officers elected by the
Nebraska aerie of Eagles at Benson
Tuesday afternoon. Chadron was chos
en as the next place of meeting. Grand
Island was also a bidder for the conven
tion, but unfortunately for it, and for
tunately for Chadron, the Grand Island
aerie was not ' up with its per capita
and consequently not in the eligible list.
Following the election and other busi
ness, the new officers were installed
and the convention concluded.
The convention adopted two impor
tant resolutions.one recommending the
establishment of a nation) home for
aged Eagles and those who have tu
berculosis. The other urges state au
tonomy, which will be one of the live
issues in the rational convention.
Today will occur the grand parade of
the visiting delegates and it is esti
mated that 10,000 Eagles will be in
line. Plattsmouth sent up a delegation
of about sixty, No. 15 on the Burling
ton this morning taking over a hundred
visitors. Reports from Omaha received
during the week are, to the effect that
this meeting is one of. the most suc
cessful in the history of the order, srtcr
many good words have been spoken for
Omaha for the manner in which she
has entertained her visitors.
Out On Bail.
Charles Baker, who was recently ar
rested on a charge of bigamy on infor
mation furnished the county attorney
from his old home in Ohio, and who
has since been confined in the county
jail, was released on bail the first of
the week, and is now looking for work
at his trade of stone mason. The county
court fixed the amount of his bond at
$500 at his hearing. Later Judge
Travis reduced this to $400. Old friends
of the accused in Ohio made up a purse
of $300 and deposited with the First
National Bank of this city, and his at
torneys, Sullivan and Gering, furnished
The confinement has. had a bad effect
upon the health of Mr. Baker, but he
thinks he will quickly recover his usua
robustness when he gets to work.
Compliments the Parmele.
Plattsmouth has many things of
which her citizens are justly proud, fine
business houses, churches, schools,
hotels, etc., but perhaps none of them
stand out in such prominence, as com
pared with similar things in other cities,
as does our opera house. Frank H.
Leonard, the Christian Science lecturer
who spoke in this city last week, made
the statement that in all his travels.
with one exception, he had not found
so handsome and well appointed a
structure as the Parmele, and many
cities much larger in population could
not boast of so good a house.
Charles Martin, the barber, with
commendable push and enterprise is
having the interior of his place of busi
ness repainted and decorated. While
Charles' political principles are re
garded by many as dreadfully un
orthodox he is a delightfully optimistic
cuss and keeps well up with the great
American Zeitgeist. Kinkead & Ma
honey are doing the work and with
their handicraft are working a trans
formation. Dwyer Win Case.

j Hatt, jr., wherein the plaintiff sued to
