HE DISTURBED THE
PEACE LAST NIGHT
Young Fellow Smashes Up a Vine
Street House and Draws
Wis Kalasek enlisted last evening
as a knight of the Growler and pro
ceeded to make things noisy around the
streets for a while. He was taken off
duty last night about nine o'clock buy
night officer Trout who placed him in
the city bastile to await his "court
martial" this morning.
It seems that Monday night, three
or four young fellows of the city,
being a little affected by the soft rajs
of the spring moon, went up to spend
a social evening at Mrs,. Wortlen's
place on Vine street. The woman was
not especially anxious for their com
pany that evening and refused them
admittance to her abode, wherewith
the gentlemen on the outside became
decidedly wrathy and threatened to
take the place by Btorm. They banged
on the doors and broke out a number
of window lights but the people on
the inside held their own anil managed
to withstand the siege without running
up the white flag. Ilowevei, fearing
a repitition of the Port Arthur stunt
last night, Mrs. Worden appealed to
the polisce for aid in preventing the
Officer Trout was sent out with his
big stick to await the developments
of the evening, and hardly was he more
than stationed when the aforesaid
Kalasek arrived with blood in his eye
and also a little booze in his system.
He broke out what remaining glass he
could find in the door and then statrcd
to demolish the sash. The forces on
the inside,armed with a hatchet suc
ceeded in holding the fort and were
just threatening to blow off the rebel's
head with a pop-gun when the officer
interferred and took Kalasek out of
the dangerous vicinity. He submitted
willingly to the officer and was lodged
in the calaboose for the night.
In the police court this morning he
pleaded guilty to being drunk and dis
turbing the peace and was given a
fine of $25 and trimmings. He was
allowed the day to dig up the coin
which he said he would rather produce
than be a month's boarder of the Man
Krowlek Estate Sold.
An administrator's sale was held
at eleven o'clock today on the court
house steps buy Will J. Streight, ad
ministrator of the Waclav (generally
known as James) Krolck estate. The
property consisted of ten acres of
land and a small three room house
situated just outside the city limits.
The land was purchased by Frank
Krowlek, son of the deceased, for the
sum of $1,000.
W. D. Messersmith, the local truck
gardener and fruit man, reported to
the News today that the severe win

any extent as many people expected
it would. Ho states that sumo of
his poach trees are already in hit in

of a pea in about a week.

PLATTSMOUTH WILL PLAY
BALL AND DO IT SOON
Enthusiastic Meeting of Businessmen and Fans Held in
the City Hall Last Night.
SET OF OFFICERS ELECTED
AND GOOD MANAGER SELECTED
Prospects Never Brighter For a Fast Team to Represent
the City For 1910 Season.
(From Wednesday's Daily)
If the size of the crowd and the en-
thusiasm indulged in last night at the
base ball meeting held in the Council
chamber is to be the judge base ball
in Plattsmouth this year w ill take
a step forward which will be a credit
to the city. -
Everybody was enthusiastic for a
good team and the assurance by sev-
eral present, including last year s
manager that there was material right
here in the city for a fast team met w ith
a great deal of favorable comment,
for it seemed to be the general idea
that as we had the material here,
the boys should be given a chance to
Mr. Warren, manager last year call
ed the meeting to order and gave the
crowd a good talk on the work necess
ary to make the venture a success.
Owing to his work in the shops he
said that it was impossible for him
to take hold of the team and give it
the attention which a team should
have to make it a success along all
lines, but he would be glad to assist
in every way in his power to make a
winning team for the city.
The following officers were then el
ected: President, P. A. Barrows.
Secretary, Frank Gobclman.
Treasurer W. It. Egenberger.
Manager, Ed Brantner.
Executive ciommittee, J. P. Falter,
Adolph Giese, Anton II. Kobek.
The above officers will constitute
the executive committee who will
have power to transact the business
of the association.
Speeches were made by most of
the officers elected atid by several
of the businessmen present and the
matter of grounds were discussed at
considerable length, the matter fi
nally being loft to the members of
the executive committee.
In his talk to the mooting on taking
the chair, the president asured the as
sociation that everything would be
done by him that was possible to ad-

vance the interests of the club and gave
considerable of a talk along the lines
of harmony. He asked that the
, criticism whirti a player is apt to
' receive from his team mates when an
j error is made be cut out as much as
possible, saying that the player him-
.self probably felt the mistakes more
deeply than anyone else could possibly
do and that criticism many times made
the offender more subject to additional
errors. A player who played without
error, it must be remembered, would be
in the big leagues, and not in Platts
mouth, and that fact should be re
membered in casting judgment on the
work of an amatuer. The president
also advised that a system of busi
ness be adopted whereby the treas
urer would make a monthly repoit
of all .monies received and paid out,
that no money be paid out only upon
order of the secretary signed by some
Mr. Nemetz made a good talk along
the line of ; good, language by the
players during a game. He said that
the public were the ones the asso
ciation would have to depend upon
if the venture was a success, and if
all were assured that they would not
be compelled to listen to vile lan
guage, they would attend the games
and would be constant with their pat
ronage. His remarks met with much favor
from the crowd and others joined with
him in assuring the mooting that they
would use their influence along the
line of giving the public not only good
exhibitions of base ball in which the
ladies or girls could attend and be as
sured that there would be no ac
casion for them to leave the grounds
with regret that they had been com
pelled to listen to something which
had no place there.
The executive committee will meet
Tomorrow evening to perfect plans
along the linos of grounds and other
matters of importance.
The mooting then adjourned
Greek Found Ills Brother.
W. L Pickett, the agent for the Bur
lington felt last night as though ho
had a great burden lifted olT his shoul
ders when ho got the freshly imported
Son of Greece safely landed with his
brother with the sphogotti name.
The young foollow of tho dark skinned
typo landed in the city on the 8:15
train yesterday morning and when the
train pulled out and tho passengers
cleared away the fresli importation
remained as a silent guard over his
stack of luggage on the platform.
Mr. Pickett, nol caring for the perman
ent decoration at the depot, tried to
leave him at the Greek quarters near
the shops, but although this idea
could not be explained to the foreigner
the signs and grunts along that line
didn't seem to make a hit with him,
and he stuck to the gent all day like
a watch dog.
In the evening his brother returned
in one of the crews of laborers and
their meeting was a joyful one, at least
it was noisy enough to be so. The two
of thorn clambered on a morning train
for Omaha today, while Pickett wont
across the river to celebrate his nar
row escape from having to adopt the
son of the sunny south.
One of the catchy Easter display
w indow s of the city is that of Sherwood
Brothers, the shoomen. It is a pretty
arrangement of the Easter rabbits
and eggs trimmed with the season's
colors of purple and white with a
sprinkling of lillies.

Congressman Hinshaw An
nounces He Will Not
Be a Candidate.
LEAVES WAY OPEN
FOR SENATOR SLOAN
Mr. Hinshaw Gives as Reason that
He Needs a Rest from the
FAIRBURY, Neb., March 23.
Word has just been received in Fair
bury be friends of Congressman Hin
shaw that he will decline to enter
the race for congress this fall. The
congessman has worked very hard
during the last session, and ho does
not feel at this time that he cares to
assume the burdens of a hard cam
paign. This announcement was re
ceived here with expressions of regret
on every hand. The congressman
has been especially popular in his home
county, where he began his proffes
sional career some t'.venty-odd years
ago. It was known at the time he
left for Washington that he was ser
iously considering retiring from con
gress at the end of his present term,
and the announcement did not come
wholly as a surprise. While his friends
here have expressed regret that he had
been impelled to make this action,
they believe his long and faithful
service and his loyalty to his party
has earned him the right to make th
choice. In retiring the congressman
expresses gratuitudc and profound
appreciation for the loyalty of his
many friends throughput the district,
and treasures the many expressions
of confidence that he is receiving from
day to day.
