Defendants in the Celebrated
Wrecking Case Given
OUT OF THE CITY.
City Clerk accepts Tax of Twenty
Five Dollars This Morning.
Yesterday afternoon warrants were
issues for Nathan Grunberg, Harry
Contor and William Warshow, the
promoters of the wrecking gale, charg
ing them with a violation of the Bill
Poster's ordinance. The trio were
taken before Judge Archer by the
chief of police and invited to plead.
Nathen stated that the other two
were hired by him and that they had
not been doing anything amiss. And
that ho could not say whether he was
guilty of violating the ordinance or
not until he saw his attorney, who
was in Omaha and would not return
until evening, and he would like a
continuance until today at 9 o'clock.
City attorney Ramsey was pre
sent and read the complaint to the
court, urging the court that the
matter ought to be disposed of at
once. The court took a different
view and remarked that the defend
ant was entitled to have an attorney
if he wanted one and fixed their
bonds at $200.00 each, being
S 100.00 on each count. Nathen went
out and was gone for ji short 1timc
when he returned 'J. "V? Leanord was
with him, and the bond for their
appearance was speedily fixed. Mr.
Gering did not get back last evening
and did not return on either No (
or 4 this morning.
This morning the parties appeared
before the Judge and on account
of the absence of his attorney, Nathen
again asked the court to continue
the ease until he could get in com
munication with his attorney. Both
the city attorney, Mr. Ramsey and
Mr. Tidd argued for immediate action
on the part of the court. The Judge
staled that he had always been in
favor of a man having a fair trial,
and it was the belief of the court that
Nathen was not in a condition for a
trial under the cireunstances. and he
would continue the case until 9
o'clock tomorrow morning. The
council for the city and for the exe
cutive committee of the commercial
club, then twisted that the reconi
zance be renewed, and Nathen was
instt u'.-ted to procure his men and his
surety to appear at once and enter
into another bond for his appearance
Friday morning at 9 o'clock. There
was a large crowd of merchants and

Nathen was told that there would
be no further continuance of the
case after tomorrow morning, and
that he must be ready to proceed
at that time. He promised that if
Mr. Gering could not be reached
and his attendance secured, that he
would procure another attorney to
take his case.
It should be stated in this connection
that the city clerk this morning
excepted the proffered tax of $25.00
for the privilege of doing business
in the city for a year.
SOFT GRADES ON
THE MILFORD LINE.
Burlington New Grade Suffering
Considerably from Wet Weather.
New grades of the Milford line of
the Burlington railroad are again
causing trouble and men who operate
trains over that part of the road are
wondering how old these grades must
get before settling will stop.
The rainy weather of the fall soaked
them and the freeze came and held
the water in the high cnbankments.
Snow fell on the sides. Now the
snow has melted under the sunshine
of the past week and the frost has
slowly left the ground. With the leav
ing of the frost the embankments
have given away in places, sliding out
and settling down. More dirt must
be filled in places and more cinders
packed on top of the dirt to hold the
grade in place. Trainmen say in
places the grade is much wider at the
bottom than it was at first, this wid
ening being caused by the grade set
tling and the sides of the embank
ments sliding down.
When contractors were at work on
the Milford line people who saw the
quality of earth put into the grades
predicted trouble. The soil is of such
a character that wzter causes it to
dissolve, or mix thoroughly. When
dry it is hard and difficulty tornove.

and crevasses were left between the
clods or chunks, which did not fill

many other kinds of soils. When
water works into the grades the re

Trackmen say that another season's
hard work is ahead of them on the
Milford line if heavy rains follow in
the spring and summer. Some trouble
is looked for on all railroad grades
and a great deal of surfacing will be
necessary, but the newer grades will
cause most trouble.. Slate Journal.

Talks to the Men of That
Rustling Industry During
the Noon Hour.
Tells of the Assistance They Can
be to the Business In
terests of the City.
Mr. Irving, who lectured at the
Parmelc Thursday in"How to Make
a Better Plattsmouth, 'in company with
C. E. Wescott, Secretary of the Con
mercial Club, and several members
of the club visited the Burlington
shops at 12:30 today and interviewed
a number of the men at the plaining
mill. Before addressing the men
Mr. Irving met many of them person
ally and was introduced by Mr.
Wescott to William McCaully who
said he had been in the employ of
the company for 30 years and Val
Burkel who had been in the company's
service for 29 years, and many others
whose term of service had been shorter.
Mr. Irving spoke about fifteen min
utes on his mission to. Plattsmouth,
and informed the men of his lecture
tonight and some of the lessons he
hoped to teach. He told the men
that he believed this town to be
located beautifully so far as landscape
was concerned, and touched on the
needs of attention to our parks to
make the town more inviting. The
speaker also said that unless some
thing was done to conserve the in
dustrial interests of the city, we as
citizens would not be able to main
tain our schools and churches on ns
high a plane of as they now are.
He believed that the industrial
interests of the citv were of first
importance to our citizens, and that
only as an industrial people would we
accomplish anything worth while.
That the United States Congress
had recently enacted a statute es
tablishing a conservation commis
sion, in the interests of the smaller
towns and cities of the country, to
aid them in maintaining their status
and prevent their undoing by the
great cities of this country,and that
it was the aim of the speaker to
assist Plattsmouth, in acquiring in
formation as to what are her needs.
His lecture tonight would be along
these lines, and Mr. Irving thought
lie could make some valuable sug
gestions to every citizen, who eared
to attend. He told the men if they
had not something more important
on hand he would be pleased to see
them at the Parmele tonight.
The men listened with interest to
his brief remarks, and Mr. Wescott
having a few of the Booster buttons
with him disposed of them. It had
been intended to have some one
ake the Buttons through tire shops and
give each one desiring an opportunity
to have one, but the lateness of nr
rival prevented this. The buttons
will be ready for distribution tonight
at the opera house.S:45 is the hour for
the lecture to begin.
He Found It.
The recovery of Mrs. Fitzgeralds'
diamond studded crcseiit, which had
lain unnoticed for days between two
flagstones in the sidewalk in one of the
busiest blocks in Broadway, recalls
the exprriecce of a woman, who one
evening last year, after the opera,
went to one of the fashionable restau
rants in a party of six. They oecu-
j pied a table in the crowded room and
J lingered over their supper till late. On
i arriving at her home, the woman dis
covered that a large diamond from
jone of her rings had been lost. The
j glove was searched in vain and then
her husband hastened to the rest an-
rant, which was nearly deserted, when
he arrived there under the table
' where the party had been seated he
j found the jewel. The recovery seemed
remarkable fortunate, from the fact
that the place had been swept in his
Two Industries on the Road
to Plattsmouth and More
AND COTTON GLOVES.
Will Employ Large NumbcrofMen
and Women In the Production
President Falter of the Commer
cial Club, saw W. II. Wright, a real
estate man from Omaha yesterday
who is interested with Dr. Todd in
his invention, and Mr. Wright stated
that he and his co-workers had just
completed a sample collar, of the style
and workmanship of the new patent,
and that he and his people would be
ready to meet the executive committee
of the club next Monday, and talk
over the proposition of putting a
factory in here. The matter looks
promising now for another industry.
Mr Falter also received a letter
today from C. M. Shultz, the man
who has been agitating starting a
factory for the manufactury of cotton
gloves and mittens, and he is also
ready to meet the executive committee
of the club. This industry will cm
ploy twelve people and as many sewing
machines, and will also be operated
by electric power. The factory will
propably occupy the building next
west of the M. E. Smith factory, as
'hat building is in shape to be rented.
The owner wants six months rent
in advance as he claims it will take
about that to put the building in
shape to be occupied by the glove
plant. Mr. Shultz says that his
people will not want to advance that
amount, and it is possible that the
commercial club will make sonic in
quires about the matter.
As an example of what tfye effect
of these industries will be on the
population of the city, Mr. Falter
received a letter from a woman out
west inquiring for a house worth
$550.00 which she desired to pur
chase. The lady says that she has
herself and two daughters, living
on a farm, that the work is too hard
for them, that she has heard that
the M. K. Smith people have a factory
here, and she is desirous of coming
here to give her daughters a chance
to work in the factory. President
Fuller says that all we have to do to
get more people in the city is to ar
range for their employment, and let
it be known tthnt here is something
here for them to do and they will come.

IS SERIOUSLY ILL.
Contracts Fatal Disease While In
a Kansas City Hospital.
Something about a year ago Will
C. Isreal, editor of the paper at Bekle
man, was taken ill and was Bent to
a hospital in Kansas City. The
nurse was very skillful and is a short
time had Mr. Isreal entirely cured
of his trouble. However she was not
so careful of her treatment but that
the editor contracted a disease that
proved of such a serious nature that
he felt that it would lie necessary to
have the nurse with him all the time..
The only cure for it was a wedding
license and as a result the nurse is
now Mrs. Isreal and while the di
sease is still with him there is no
danger of it proving fatal. News
paper editors are liable to fall in

being, and as a general thing they

Joseph McMakin with his corteric
of workman took down the old Biuoke
stack which has done service at the
Coates block for a numlcr of years,
and placed the new one in place which
is.forty feet long. The old stack was
slightly tapering the larger end being
at the bottom. When ordering " a
new one the measurements for the new
stack was taken from the roof of the
higher portion of the building which
when the workmen went to put it
up proved to be much smaller than
the bottom of the old one,. This had
to be enlarged in order that it might
fit. For this cause it required a longer
time to complete the work. The
work was well done, 'and proves the
motto, of the MnMaken Co," When

considered very gentle, but had been
standing in the stable for some tome,
when the animal without any warning
kicked the young man,ono foot strik
ing him in tho face, while the other
