Today bccs the completion of the
elevator, which II. M. Socnnichsen
has been having installed in his 6tore
building, that he may have better
arrangements, for the proper conduct
ing of his business which has grown
during the years of his business life
so the limited space on the one
floor of his store is not sufficient for
the proper carrying on of the business
Some time ago Mr. Socnnichsen con
ceived the idea of having the upper
room over his store used for storage
purposes, with that end in view pur
chased an clevarot and with today
will have the installation of the same
completed, thereby connecting the
entire block from cellar to the upper
story in, order that any or all lines of
his stock can be placed in the cellar
or on the upper floor at his pleasure.
This arrangement nlaces Mr. Socn
nichsen in a position to better care
for the immense trade with
fair dealiug, and gentlemanly
treatment of his customers has gained
for his store. In this Mr. Sosnriiclisen
is to be congratulated, and it is the
wishes of his many friends for further

Two attachments suits were com
menced in M. Archer's court yesterday
by J. W. Peters, plaintiff in the one and
and II. E. Zankonin of Louisville
plaintiff in the other.both suits were
against llust Deaumister who had
loaded his car with farm implements
stock and household goods billed for
Oklahoma. Mr. Peters contends that
he should be paid .$11.50 while Mr.
Pankonin insistcs that he should have
the sum of S00.23 before he would allow
a wheel to turn. There were costs of
suit in each case also which must come
also. Mr. Beauniister was not like
a man who could not pay, for the at
tachments were no sooner levied than
showed up a roll of bills that would he
make your eyes bulge right out. The
debts were paid of course and this
closed the matter and ere this Mr. B.
is being rolled toward a wanner clime
as fast as the M. P. can take him.

Much Advertised Meeting ; at Lincoln Turned Into a

RINGLING BROTHERS CIRCUS
Trust Breaking Buster and
After advertising a show with at
ttnetions which would pay a man to
spend many dollars to see and travel
hundreds of miles to observe, the
great insurgent conglomeration of liv
ing wonders and savage, trust devou
ring pologomises, gave their exhibi
tion at the Oliver theatre in Lincoln
last Thursday evening.
We had hoard so much about the
savage insurgents who prowled about
seeking to devour innocent and unpro
tected standpatters, that it was with
many misgivings that we took the
train that morning after bidding the
other two-thirds of our family a sad
farewell to brave the dangers which
lay before us. But a brave man never
flinches is the face of duty. We knew
that someone would have to visit
the capital city and tell to the world
the story of the carnage, to tell of the
dead and dying, and though we might
never live to tell the tale, our posterity
would have cause to know that we
we went forth in a good cause and fell
fighting with the front part of our
suspenders toward the dreaded in
Our courage nearly went back on us
upon arriving at the capital city and
discovered by reading-one of the papers
published there that the stand patters
were going to go early and fill the hall
so that when the insurgents arrived
there would be no room for them.
That they had arranged to break up
the show and a whole lot of other
stuff which would have a tendancy to
bring out a crowd to see the excite
About eight o'clock we journeyed
to the theatre where the meeting was
to be held, 'somewhat anxiously, fear
ing that on account of the lateness of
the hour that we might not be able
to get in. We were surprised to dis
cover that only about half of the seat
ing capacity of the theatre on the
lower floor was taken. A little later
the crowd was swelled considerably
so that at one time the lower floor was
about three fourths full. There was
no one in the galleries. The seating
capacity of the lower floor is six hun
dred. One side of the house was full
of empty chairs, showing by actual
count 100 unoccupied. There were
a few others mixed in with the crowd
which were not is use.
The meeting opened with a speech
by Mayor Love in which he failed to
insurge or even come close enough to
that point to enable anyone to dis
cover that he was anything else but
a republican of pure administration
City Attorney Flansburg followed
with a speech along the same line and
said that "we arc republicans loyal to
the administration of President Taft".
His address was very mild outside of
his criticism of Senator Burkett.
In fact the address of both speakers
gave in no uncertain tone the object
of the meeting-not to insurge against
Will Have a New Business House.
Beginning with the fore wtrt of the
coining month, a new milinery store
will be opened m the Coates building
on the south side of Main street, be
tween fifth and sixth, where formerly
the moving picture show was and Inter
the Box Bowling ally. Mr. II. Norton
will open the store in the early part of
l ebruary, and in tunc for the coining
pring millinery trade with a fine
stock of goods. The room is now being
overhauled and put in the proper
shape for the stock, nnd Will when
completed be one of the best locations
for this particular line of businos in
the city. This is another evidence
of the intention of one of the citizens
to "see Plattsmouth succeed".
WITH WAGON SHOW ATTRACTIONS
Ring Tailed Snorter Neither
the president,' but to work up a senti
ment airainst Senator Burkett. t
The remarks of the latter speaker
Air. I'lansburg were almost wholly
aimed at Mr. Burkett, and frequently
applause irom certain portions of the
room denoted that his shots at the
senior senator was appreciated.
Attorney General Jackson of Kansas
who had been advertised far and wide
as the "Kansas Trust Buster," was
the principal speaker of the evening,
but somehow he did not come up to
the expectations of the crowd as many
people took occasion to leave the
house during the time he was speaking.
He is not at all an entertaining speaker
and somehow the crowd could not
get interested, probably because they
had been lead to boliovo flint. ho
something out of the ordinary.when if
anything he was far below the average.
One thing which we attended that
meeting for was to Bee for ourself just
exactly the interest taken and tl in kind
of people who were in attendance, in
order to be able to in the future not
have to depend upon hearsay. There
was one thing that struck us forcibly.
During the remarks of tlm first
speakers where they nssailed Senator
liurKeu, ,we noticed tha.t the applause
was not general over the room l.nt
came from three sections of the crowd.
The south side furnished most of it,
while the tier of seats to the south
center had quite a bunch of enthus
iastic applause makers. There was
one man in the center, not far from
uie acws urn or who was also very
generous witli his hand clapping, and
made noise enough for two or three.
Those spoken of. furnished in mxnlv
every instance the applause of the
evening up to the time that the Kansas
gentleman spoke. Most of it was
occasioned by anti-Burkett senti
ments from the speaker.
When in the course of his remarks
Mr. Jackson spoke of the criticism
of W. J. Bryan of the republican
tariff bill, a well known democratic
office holder of the last legislature
shouted "Amen." At the same time
applause broke out most vociferously,
and we took occasion to observe that
It came from the same identical source
that it had come from when the speakers
criticized Senator Ihtrkctl.
Now the question naturally arises,
were the fellows who furnished the
applause of the evening over the criti
cism of Burkett, democrats, or were
the same fellows who applauded Bryan
criticism of the tariff, republicans.
In the corridor of the theatre as the
crowd camo out there were very few
remarks as to the speaker made, or
reference to the crowd in attnedancc.
We have endeavored to give a clear
unbiased statement of the facts re
garding a meeting that is
distined to cut no little figure
in future Nebraska political history.
The reader can draw his own . con
clusion. Our opinion in the matter
will be left to the editorial page.
Herger Bakery Complete.
Mr. Charles Ilerger completed the
repairs on his oved making it new
throughout. The oven is now 10 bv 12
feet and is so constructed thnt one
firing up in the morning will do the
baking for a whole day. The oven is
heated to a white heat the first thing
in the morning and then allowed to
stand an hour before commencing
to use it. The heat thus generated
will bake for hours, or as much as can
be mixed during the day.
Mr. Ilerger expected, to warm the
oven up gently today, and in the after
noon possibly bake some cakes, but
tomorrow he will commence to supply
his bread trade from his own oven.
A representative of the Daily News
called upon Uncle Conrad Schlatcr
a few evenings since, knowing him
to be confined to Ids homo with as
attack of rheumatism and had a
pleasant half hour chat with him. Mr.
Schlatcr was an early settler in this
county and told the writer of a trin
he made to Louisvcllo and Weeping
Water, in 1859. Arriving at LouiH
villo there being nothing there of the
town Mr. Schlatcr stood upon the
site of the once famous Boss Stout
Prison and looking over the Platte
river saw four indians on the eastern
shore fishing. Following up the
south he passed by the site of Manlev
and on down to the Weeping Water
creek, where the city now stands.
Then directed their course toward
Plattsmouth and not until they had
arrived to within a few miles of
Plattsmouth did they see a white man
or a house in which one dwelt.
Mr. Schlatcr says to tell his friends
through the columns of the Daily
News that ho is getting along fine
and will eoon bo down town, though
at the present timo is "homesick"to
get on the street again.

FROM WABASH MAN.
Says We Do Not Have to Walt Till
Next May to See the Phenomenon
A letter received today from Mr.
Peter Router of Wabash,informs us
that if oiie wishes to see the new comet
it is plainly visible just after sunset
above the western horizan.
We think that by going on top of
any of the numerous hills near the city
that all will bo able to behold it in
all its glory. It will bo a sight worth
seeing for it is not every day that a
person can get the chance to see a
comet without the aid of a glass.
Organize Comet excursions and get
out and see the thing before it gets awa.
