ALL OMAHA PAPERS
TURN DOWN STORY
Probably Afraid this City May be
The Omaha papers up to this time
have failed to give any account of
the big banquet given by the commer
cial club of this city last Monday eve
ning, notwithstanding accounts of
same were sent to the papers there.
It is supposed that the Omaha pa
pers are afraid, now that rlattsmouth j
lias taken a boom, that the town will
grow to such proportions that Omaha
will no longer be the metropolis of;
the state. I
There may be grounds for their
fears, for if the speakers from Omaha j
:tre to be believed, the furute of this
city in very bright. Omaha is most j
too close to Niuth Omaha to ever be,
u real mctronolitan citv. thoudi the I
Smith Omaha aroma which floats J
over the city up the creek may have :
elements of value not yet discovered. !
At present the airship problem has
been agitating the Omaha people,
for the reason that they have been
trying to get above the smell, but so
far it has not given satisfaction be
cause they were unable to get back
In fore eight o'clock, and between the
South Omaha aroma and the loss of
the usual custom of pushing their vest
fronts up againM the bar of a wet em
porium, they prefer the aroma.
The capital city did not mention
bur banquet, though they were given
a chance. It is intimated that they,
fear that the capital may be moved to
Plattsmouth, nrovided the governor,
calls that extra session. Put then,
l'iattsiiiouth doesn't want the slate
house. There are too many politi
cians left stranded after their terms
of office are out who are unable to get
oul of town, and spend their time
finding fault with the government
and who also imagine that they as
"insurgents" and other things, to
make desirable citizens.
Plattsmouth is filling pretty good.
She has a clear conscience. She has a
good class of citi.ens. She has a whole
lot of good thing-; that the swelled up
places do not have. And there is one
thing especially which we will put up
against the capital city and the metro
politan city which we possess and that
is our rustling commercial club with
its cracking bunch of good officials.
Do vou call us?

HAVKI.OC'K, Dec. 3. Havolojk
accepts the challenge of the Alliance
team to play a post season game at

for n purse of at least S200 and this
will probably be raised to a larger
sum before the game is played. The
game between the teams played at
Alliance on Thanksgiving day re
sulted in a victory for the Alliance ag

the contest on New Year's day has
