FIREMEN'S STRIKE CALLED
OFF JUST IN NICK OF TIME
Walkout Matter Settled at Last Moment by Acceptance
of Men of Federal Mediation.
limestone quarry at Louisville is
rapidly ncaring completion, and the
place will be open for business within
a month or so. The Louisville quarry
is being prepared by Hugh Murphy
the paving contractoi of Omaha, who
will use the product for his work in
the cities. The quarries are located
on the Burlington tracks in the heart
of the town, ami when the industry
is in operation it will mean a rattling
good addition for Louisville, for when
in full blast, it will employ from 150
to 200 men and bring a lot of new

MATTER HOWEVER MAY BE TAKEN UP
AGAIN IF TERMS ARE UNSATISFACTORY.
Officers of Union Have Wired Officials at Washington to
Hurry to Chicago at Once.
CHICAGO, March 16 Danger of
an immediate strike of 27,000 loco
motive firemen, the throwing out of
employment of more than 125,000
other employees and the temporary
suspension of business on practically
every railraod system between Chicago
and the Pacific coast was averted to
day through the acceptance of otters
of mediation from the federal author
ities at Washington.
' At the request of the general man
agers of the forty seven western roads
''involved, Chairman Martin A. Knapp
of the Interstctc Commerce commis
sion and commissioneer of Labor C.
P. ONYill telegraphed an oiler of fed
oi al mediation to the union officials.
This offer was accepted, W. S. Carter,
president of the Brotherhood of Lo
comotive Firemen and Fnginemen,
stipulating, however, thflt action must
begin without delay.
The appeal to Washington was taken
as an eleventh-hour move to pre
vent a walk-out which, it was de
clared, threatened the greatest rail-
It Pays to be Polite.
While the writer was in a conver
sation a few days since with a man
who has grown gray in business in
this city and has always been noted
for his kindly disposition and his gen
eral Bquarc dealing, he remarked:
"Say, do you know the young boys
cf this place do not know what it is
to be polite or what it is worth 1o them
now or in the time to come?" He also
said that he could easily discern the
difference between the way a child of
a foreign born person addressed his
seniors and the attitude of the native
American. "I," said he "make a
practice of when a child comes to my
place of business, for a picture card,
calendar, or blcttei, or a fan in the
xummer time, which we always have
to give away, to require them to thank
me for the article. Not that I care so
much for the thanks, as for the train
ing which that gives to the child."
Should the child say nothing when the
desire, which he craved had been
granted, the kind gentlemnnwould say,
road strike since that of ISOfi. Thirty-seven
members of the western
federated board of the brotherhood
at midnight last night formally voted
for a strike. The hour for striking
had been set for next Monday morn
ingand the members were prepared
tc start for their homes some of them
as far as the Pacific coast to put the
strike into action when the mediation
steps were taken.
It is stipulated that the mediators
shall conic to Chicago. According to
M. Carter, this function will be,
not to arbitrate the matters in dis
pute, but to determine what shall be
arbitrated. The questions involves
wages which both side have agreed
upon as arbitrable and two other
technical points, involving promotion
and representation in the union,
which the brotherhood contends arc
arbitrable,, but which the railroads
assert are not.
"If the mediation fa'ls through, the
strike will go on as planned," said
Meet at Coates' Hall and
Select Candidates for
"That aiticle cost me something and
it is nothing more than just that you
should pay something for it as well, in
order that you may appreciate it."
"Oh," the child would say, "I thought
you had them to give away!" "True
we do, but we expect you to show you
are grateful for the present as well."
The fact then dawns upon the child's
mind, and ho is very profuse with his
thanks. The lesson is a good one and
teaches the receiver of the kindness to
to always express the thankfulness
which should exist when a kind act has
been rendered In this busy-go-ahead
world, all of us forget the kindness and
courtesies, which make the pathway
through life the brighter, and more
worth the traveling, but if we wouh;
make it a rule never to allow the other
one to exceed us in the little acts of
kindness how much better the world
would be. Bel ter try it f;r awhile and
sec the difference.
To Wedding In Omaha.
(From Wednesday's Dally)
A jolly crowd of tho Steppats and
Kaffcnhrrgcrs gathered at the Bur
lington depot this morning prepara
tory to a little pleasure jaunt to Om

attend the wedding this afternoon
of Miss Mary Meyer to Mr. Schultz
of Omaha. The wedding is to be
held at two o'clock at the home of
the bride's parents after which the
couple will leave on a little wedding
trip, later returning to make Omaha
their home. Miss .Meyer, although
never a resident of Plattsmouth,
has made many visits here and the
pretty bride has cultivated a strong
friendship among the young people
of the community.
The local people who were at the
ceremony were Mr. anil Mrs. August
Steppat, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Steppat,
Mr. and Mrs. ! rank Mepnat, Mr. nnu
Mrs. John Kaffenberger, Miss Deutch
and Miss Anna Stcppat.

discharged from the asylum about a
year ago, w here he had been confined
for some timr.
An inebriety case was heard before
the county insanity board at the court
house this morning and the inebriate
was released by the officers on a three
weeks parole. The fellow is a laborer
here in tow n and pleaded for one more
chance to reform which was given him.
A petition was filed today at the

To Kansas City.
Theodore Amick, son of the chief
of police, accompanied by Mrs. D. L.
Amick, took his seven year old daugh
ter to Kansas City today where they
will consult specialists over the con
dition of the little girl, who's troubles
arc of a nervous disorder. Mrs. Amick
expected to make a lengthy visit with
her sister, Mrs. Fred Grant, who had
a nice residence in Kansas City, but
a telegram was received last night
slating that the home had been de
stroyed by fire and was a total loss.
This is quite a shock and disap

will be forced to change all of her
plans, ami as the condition is, she will

The Citizen's convention which
met in Coates hall last evening was
called to order by City Chairman W.
II. Newell and Secretary It. II. Pat
terson read the call.
On motion the same officials were
made officers of the convention and
the following candidates were nominated:
Members of school board, II. M.
Soennichsen and J. M. Roberts.
1st ward, Dr. E. W. Cook.
2nd ward, Win. Weber.
3rd ward, John Bauer.
4th ward, Geo. Ballance.
5th ward, John LuU.
A good crowd was in attendance
and much interest seemed to be taken
in the movement, the concensus of
opinion being that at this time the city
should select the very best men that
could be found to conduct its affairs.
Itwas the unanimous opinion that
for members of the school board,
no better selection could be made
than to endorse the work of the two
members whose terms expire and again
place them in nomination.
It was noticablc that many leading
democrats and republicans were pres
ent and took much interest in the nam
ing of a ticket, believing that politics
should cut little figure in the election
at this time.
Will Make a Fine Home.
Mr. Robert Troop, who last fall
bought the property of Mr. A. J.
Graves, in the third ward, is overhaul
ing and rebuilding the same for a home
for himself. The house is being raised
and a foundation extended which will
make it some two or three feet higher.
The roof is also to be raised making
additional room in the second story,
when complete it will be modern in
all points, with water, gas, electricity
and furnace heat. Contractor L. G.
Larson has the work, which goes with
out saying that it will be done in a
first class manner. The place when
finished will make a good and com
fortable home for Mr. Troop and wife.
Departs for Northern Nebraska.
C. M. Whitehead and family de

the northern part of the state where
he has rented a farm and will try farm

Although not having been officially
notified, I have understood that I
was nominated by the Citizens con
vention last night for councilman for
the first ward. While I deeply ap

would thrust upon me. I wish to say
that owing to business matters it
would be utterly impossible for me
to give the office the attention which
such an office deserves, and I there

John Miller whose face has been
seen before in the local police court
was up again this morning facing Judge
Archer on the charge of conducting
himself in a vicious and offensive man
ner, while badly polluted with tho
corn juice. Miller was arrested last
night about 11:50 by Officer Trout,
who hurried to the scene of the rough
house that Miller was raising at the
Martin Livery Barn, and saved the
place from total destruction at the
hands of the intoxicated youth.
When the police arrived the tele
phone in the office had been made to
assum the appcaarancc of a battered
tomato can and the stove looked
like it might have been in the recent
Philadelphia strike. In a few hours
time tho place would have resembled
a stag party hall after a dutch lunch,
if the iron hand of the law had not
interfered and the cause of the trouble
lodged in the city dungeon for the night
