Mr. Dobcck in talking with the News

be gotten ready to turn out work to
meet the trade at this season of the
year that he would be tempted to pull
out the machinery. If there is any
thing that the people of Plattsmouth

Declares law Unconstutlonal.
LINCOLN, Nov. 16. Another law
passed by the last legislature has been
declared unconstitutional by the su

a new normal board which has been in
controversy for some time.
The decision was written by Judge
Barnes, Judges Hoot, Lytton, Fawcett
and Hoot concurring, Judge Reese
concurring in part and Judge Dean
The old board which will still stand
consists of Itcv. Luther P. Ludden of
Lincoln, Dr. B. L. Shellhom of Auburn,
X. P. McDonald of Kearney, II. M.

Alliance. Thomrs J. Majors, who was
appointed to a position on the new
board, will probably be appointed by
Governor Shallenberger to fill the
place of Mr. Hayes whose term has ex

also appoint new members to most of
the other places as it is in his power to
remove for cause whenever he sees fit.

PLATTSMOUTH COMMERCIAL CLUB
GOING AFTER THE BUSINESS
Enthusiastic Meeting Held at Coates Hall in
Which Many Interesting Things
OVER THE OUTLOOK
Great Things For the Future Promised For
Plattsmouth if Wires do Not
One of the best attended and most
enthusiastic meetings of the Platts
mouth commercial club was held last
night at the club rooms when a large
number of our hustling citizens got
together to discuss matters of vital
importance to the future welfare of the
city of Plattsmouth. There was not a
dull moment from the time the chair
man called the meeting to order until
an adjournment was taken. The re
ports of the various committees were
presented and were received with a
The president reported over S500 in
cash on hand. The building committee
reported that the Smith building was
in shape for business just as soon as
the work of installing the heating
plant was finished. The hustling com
mittee reported that it had met with
good success in collecting the M. II
Smith fund. Over $500 had already
been collected and $200 more was
needed. The membership committee
reported an increase in membership
of 50 names, due to the strenuous
efforts of George Falter and John Hatt.
The committee on road to the ferry
have the matter well in hand nnd so re
ported. Mr. Windham spoke in behalf
of the committee and stated that they
had taken. the matter up with the city
councilmen and county board of com
missioners. The road to the ferry was
easily the chief topic of discussion.
It means that when the road is con
structed that every merchant in the
city will be benefitted. Many bus
iness men present expressed them
selves as unqualifiedly in favor of the
road and it was the sense of the meet
ing that a public expression, perhaps
through the medium of the city press,
would have a favorable bearing. The
Daily News columns are open for
A Dutch Supper.
There is in Plattsmouth a social
club and that particular club knows
well how to get enjoyment out of their
meetings. Last Saturday Mrs. J. II.
Donnelly had a birthday what one,
did you say? Well, never mind, it was
her birthday, and the News is not giv
ing away any secrets she had a birth
day, we stated, and the fact was well
known to the other members of the
club and of course that meant a birth
day party. The club has a membership
of about fourteen nnd one of the mem
bers happened to be Miss Lena Frickc,
whose approaching marriage is public
knowledge,so it was decided that the
party while celebrating the birthday of
a member would be a good time to fit
tingly celebrate the coming interesting
event of another member, by a sur
prise party. At G:30 o'clock the mem
bers of the club filed into the dining
room, all with the exception of Miss
Frickc, dressed in Dutch costume,
topped off with the cute Dutch caps
and sat down to a Dutch supper con
sisting of sauerkraut, wienies and oth
er good tYmgs usually found at such a
spread. From the four corners of the
room to the center had been strung red
white and blue hearts, while the table
was beautifully decorated with flowers
and hearts. The chair of Miss Frickc,
who was the guest of honor, was appro
priately decorated and the surprise of
that young lady was complete and her
The club has been in existence for
more than seven years and it is cus
tomary to give a party at the home of
the member fortunate to have a birth
day. These events arc always thor
oughly enjoyed and are a delightful
way to keep in remembrance the anni
versary of the greatest event in the
lives of the club of congenial friends.
such discussion, or for the discussion
of any public interest. The subject
of good roads received its share of at
tention and the unanimous sentiment
of those who participated in the dis
cussion was to the effect that every
thoroughfare leading into the city
should be improved and the work
should be prosecuted as quickly ns
The banquet committee reported
over fifty tickets sold for the spread
which will be given on the evening of
the 29th. It is expected to feed 150
guests upon that night. Now the gen
eral public must understand that this
banquet, to be given by the commer
cial club, is not confined to members.
All who arc interested in the welfare
of Plattsmouth are wanted at the
feast. Tickets may be procured from
the Messrs. Baylor, Schneider or Nc
metz. Buy a ticket and show by your
presence that you arc a sure enough
ilo'i, another matter. There are
sonic good men and true who say they
would attend the meetings, but arc
afraid of being accused of butting in.
Forget it. The more butinskys the
better. It won't hurt any for you to
join your fellow merchants and then
the fear of butting in will not be such a
bugbear to you. Bo a "JINEIt."
The commercial club wants you. For
ty new members have joined the club
during the past month and the number
of new members should be increased
to a hundred before the next regular
meeting is held.
The Daily News is heart and soul
with the commercial club or any other
that has for its object the upbuilding
and advancement of the best interests
of the city, nnd our columns arc at the
disposal of all for a free discussion of
timely topics. Will you use them. '
