CITY COUNCIL IN
Metropolitan Plan of Paving Vine
Street Taken up and Discussed
(From Tuesday's Dally)
The council of the city of Platts
mouth held forth in its regular semi
monthly meeting at the council cham
ber lust night. Every member of the
council was in his chair, and besides
the general routine of business, mat
ters pertaining to the new paving
and the improvement of the city's
walks and crossings,' were discussed
in some rather heated arguments by
the city dads.
Minutes of the last two meetings
were read and adopted, and reports
from the town fire departments were
beard, wherein the hose and apparatus
was stated to be in a generally satis
A small hornets ' nest was struck
when some talk was made of chang
ing the hours of the night police, with
the result that no action was taken
and the matter was left untouched.
It seemed advisable to Chief of
Police Amick, and some of the council
men to let one of the night men go
on duty at about three P. M. and work
till midnight, as there is little need of
two men during the early hours of the
morning, but the hours were left stand
ing as they were.
A motion was made by D. O. Dwycr
and referred to the Streets, Alleys and
Bridges committee, to have the grad
ing done, and the grade established
for a permanent stone walk on the
Catholic church property.
A number of walks and crossing
improvements were brought up, but
none were definitely ordered, on
account of the financial stringency
of the city's pocket book just at this
A motion was made by D. O. Dwyer
to have the city attorney draft an
ordinance making it possible to park
Vine street, in connection with the
proposed pavement. The proposed
plan, as talked of yesterday afternoon,
by some of the council members and
the estimating engineer who was in
the city, is to pave about a forty foot
atrip down the center of the street,
leaving a small plat on each side of the
pavement to be sodded down and
parked. This form of paving is prov
ug very popular in- the larger cities,
and it presents a very pleasing and
artistic appearance, which would cer
tainly be a welcome plan for thc:City
of Plattsmouth. Many of the coun
crimen, including the Mayor, seemed
in favor of this method, but the trouble
arose in the varying width of the street
as proposed by seme of the men. i
The plan which is most advocated
calls for a thirty foot pavement with
a nine foot park on each side, between
Fourth and Sixth on Vine street,
and a forty four foot'surfaee, with a
four foot pirk between ixth and en-
cnth. It was thought advisable to
mukc this block of wider paving in
order to carry off the water dining
the heavy rains anfd thav.s, while
the thiity foot paving was expected
to be plcniy wide enoueh for a resi
dence district and it would save con
siderable expense for the adjoining
tax payers. However the general
symetry of the street would not be
hurt by such arrangments. For this
reason, an'd thinking that they should
wait until the report of the estimating
engineer was secured, the motion was
lost and no other action was taken on
A five minute recess was allowed in
order to name the judges and clerks
for the coming election of April 2.
The officers named were as follows:
First ward: Clerks; Fred Black
and John Cory. Judges; J. H.

night W. S. Carter, prcsiJent of the
brotherhood of locomotive firemen
and cngincmcn, announced that a
strike of 25,000 firemen on practically
all the western railroads had been
Mr. Carter said that the decision
to strike had been reached at a meet
ing of forty-three members of the wes
tern federated board of the brother
hood, each member representing a
The exact hour at which the men arc
to walk out, he said, would be decided
upon tomorrow, and every member
of the union between Chicago and the
Pacific coacst would then be informed
by telegraph when to quit work.
"The strike has been called that
much is certain," said Mr. Carter.
"It means not only 25,000 firemen,
members of our union will go out,
but perhaps that many other em
ployees will be thrown out in conse
quence. We gave our ultimatum
to the railroads that the men had voted
to strike, and that we were prepared
to call one unless we were grunted
an arbitration of all questions in dis
pute. The railroads refused to ar
bitrarte anything, but the wage ques
tion. "At midnight tonight we decided
and application, for the same will
be made at once. How soon it will
be possible to get them installed after
the application is made it is difficult
to tell' This alone is an indication
of progress of the business interests
of the city. Other evidences of the
success of Plattsmouth, for the coming
season are abundant, and one does
not have to look long to see a better
town than we had last year. The
efforts which have been put forth by
the citizens, the Commercial Club
taking the initiative, is bearing fruit,
and we look for more to follow. Why
cannot the citizens work together for
a condition which will bring about
free city delivery, we can have it if
we only will, and then why not
railroad managers. We adopted
resolution culling a strike.
"Owing to the lateness of the hour
and in ordei that the men would not go
out in confusion and not know the true
state of affairs we agreed to wait until
tomorrow morning before telegraph
ing the order."
"Will the men quit work tomorrow "
Mr., Carter was asked.
"The men will quit work within
twenty-four hours after the order is
issued." he repliesd.
The railroads issued a statement
declaring that to prevent a strike,
they would if necessary, appeal to
the authorities at Washington.
Cleveland, March 16. Officers of
the brotherhood of locomotive engin
eers, when informed of the strike of
firemen called in Chicago, declared
that they knew nothing about it, and
under no circumstances would the
engineers in their organization go
out. They asserted that the engin
eers would carry out their contracts
with the railroads, regardless of what
action might be taken by the firemen,
and if necessary would employ non
union laboi. The strike is repre
sented here as a fight in the labor orgin
ization and is not regarded as important.

Horse Took a Fall.
The old gray horse of Allen O'Neal
met with a mishap yesterday after
noon in the Burlington yards that it
will remember for a long time to come.
Mr. O'Neal is employed in filling up
a deep excavation made near the tracks
some time ago when the sewer was
installed. The horses crowded too
close to the edge of the place, and when
some of the dirt began to cave in
under their weight, the big gray went
sprawling to the bottom. It was soon
gotten out of the hole, and luckily
escaped without any broken bones
and with a few bruises on its legs and
head, which Mr. O'Neal is doctorinz
