AT EAGLE, NEB.
Four Stores Were Entered and the Safe
of the Saloon Bloown Open.
DAMAGE DONE BY THIEVES
On Investigation it Was Found That But
Little Was Taken.
J. II. Latrom, of Eagle, was in the
city last night for the purpose of tran
sacting some business with the county
court, but arriving on a late train he
was compelled to remain over till this
morning. He gave the Journal a call
last night and reported that the vil
lage was raided by burglars Monday
night or sometime Monday morning.
After a thorough investigation it was
learned that but little damage was
The safe in George Oberlie's saloon
was blown open, but beyond taking a
couple of dollars in small change no
other damage was done in that place.
The general store of J. J. Keitter was
entered as was also the butcher shop
of C. S. Tromble and the hardware es
tablishment of A. S. McDonald. The
thieves in all took less than eight dol
lars in money and no goods are miss
ing. Doors were pried off their castings
in each instance to gain entrance, and
a stick of dynamite was found in the
debris about the safe in Oberlee's sa
loon. The knob of the safe had been
knocked off and the explosive inserted
in the opening thus made.
It is generally surmised about the
town that the work was done by
"home talent," and all possible efforts
will be put forth to apprehend the
NEWS OF THE RAILROADS
Perishable Freight Now Shipped in Steam
A few years ago shipments of perish
able freight were stopped or the bus
iness was greatly retarded during cold
weather, says the Lincoln Journal.
At times shipments , of fruit and
vegetables would be caught on the
road during sudden drop in tempera
ture and these cars would be hurried
into convenient roundhouses to be
cared for there until the mercury
went up sufficiently to enable the
freight to be forwarded with safety.
A little later railroads began experi
menting with car stoves and heaters
for freight of this character, and some
degree of success was attained. Now,
however, steam heat is used in refrig
erator cars carrying perishable freight
in freezing weather.
During the past year the Burlington
has largely increased the number of
refrigerators that are equipped with
iteam heating apparatus, and a recent
announcement of the company says
these cars will be furnished on demand
for carload shipments. It is supposed
that other roads have arranged for
equal facilities, and that hereafter
there will be no more risk in shipping
freight liable to damage from freezing
in cold weather than during the sum
Not only are cars furnished for car
load shipments, but regular steam
heated service is offered on most lines
of road on certain days of the week.
Steam heated cars are run on the
regular refrigerator schedules, and the
transporation of perishable freight
has been made less risky for both
patron and carrier.

SESSION OF THE COUNCIL
Nelson Jonas' Election as Fire Chief Con
firmei by Council .
SIDEWALKS BUILT CONTRARY TO LAW
Some Board Walks Constructed Where
Brick Was Ordered Parties Will
be Required to Comply With
A full aldermanic board responded
to the roll call at the regular meeting
of the council last night, which was
postponed from Monday night. Not
only were all the councilmen present,
but they were all loaded with business
of more or less importance.
By communication. Clerk Rhode of
the fire department reported the elec
tion of Nelson Jones as fire chief, to
fill the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of Wm. Edgerton, which election
was confirmed by the council.
A communication from I. Pearlman
complained that the water was wash
ing away his real estate in block 11,
Young & Hayes' addition and asked
that measures be taken for his relief.
The matter was referred to the com
mittee on streets, alleys and bridges.
The request of John Schiappacasse
for permission to erect a building,
30x13, at the rear of his store, was
granted with the provision that brick
or stone be used in its construction.
The reports of various city ofticials
showed no especial interest or unusual
features, and were referred to the re
spective committees. The committee
which has had in hand the investiga
tion of the sewers with a view to a
general repair of same were granted
more time in which to complete their
investigations and prepare summary.
Police committee reported needed
repairs to the -Tramp House,' and
on motion of Councilman Larson said
repairs were ordered not to exceed an
outlay of St;.
Mayor Gering informed the board
that the sidewalk at C. C. Parmele's
property was two feet over the curb
and that the W. II. Newell property,
Dovey & Son's and the McVey prop
erty on North Sixth street had been
improved by the construction of board
sidewalks, whereas the same were
. ordered - to be constructed? of 'brick.
After some discussion Councilman
Larson moved that the property own
ers referred to be notified by the proper
authority to comply with the ordi
nance or expect a suit, which motion
Numerous items of ditch, grade and
street work was ordered done, and
several new sidewalk resolutions
adopted. On motion of Councilman
Sattler, Street Commissioner Janda
was directed to ascertain if the prop
erty owners on Washington avenue
were agreeable to the construction of
a live-foot walk instead of four. Per
manent brick walks have been ordered
the specifications calling for four-foot
walks, but in view of the pedestrian
tratlic on that thoroughfare it is
deemed advisable to widen the side
walk a foot.
Councilman Lutz reported culvert
constructed between Cutoff and Dyke
streets but ditch not opened thereto.
Same was ordered opened.
The old and redeemed warrants and
bonds of the city were ordered burned
to prevent useless accumulation.

VILLNOW'S BROTHER HERE
He Will Take the Unfortunate Man Back
With Him to Norfolk.
HIS WHEREABOUTS WAS UNKNOWN
The Facts First Learned Through the
Columns of the Journal.
Mr. Anton Villnow, who resides
near Norfolk, Neb., arrived in the city
on the 12:56 train today, having left
his home just as soon as he possibly
could after learning where his brother
Louis was. He is here for the purpose
of takintr his brother home with him,
and expects to depart with him this
Mr. Villnow lives within a mile and
a half of Norfolk and is quite well to
do. Near him resides the Willems
brothers, formerly of this county, who
are there engaged in the dairy busi
ness. They are subscribers to the
Journal, and it was through their copy
of the paper that he learned of the
whereabouts and condition of his dis
tressed brother. He says that his
brother Louis had been living with
their sister, Mrs. Gus Wagoner, who
resides near him, but mysteriously
disappeared in July last, but that his
sister failed to let him know of his
disappearance. The first he knew
about it, he says, was when Alfred
Willems brought the Plattsmouth
Journal to him containing an account
of the finding of Louis. Later, he
says, he saw an account of the same in
the Omaha Bee.
This brother is guardian for Louis.
In the family there are four sisters
and three brothers and all of them are
in fair circumstances, financially
speaking. Mr. Villnow says his
brother will either be cared for by one
of the family, or he will be placed in
die asylum at Norfolk.
Mr. Villnow is a very pleasant gent
leman, and regrets very much the dis
appearance of his brother and the
condit'ons in which he was found. He
also feels very grateful to the author
ities for the manner in which he has
been treated by them.

BURGLARS IN TOWN AGAIN
An Effort is Made to Loot the Perkins
House, but are Foiled in the Attempt.
Again burglars attempt to ply their I
vocation in Plattsmouth. They made
a desperate effort to loot the Perkins
House, and did get away with one
pai r of pants and a vest. There seems
to have been two or three engaged in
Their plans were as follows: One
of the party secures access to the
upper stories of the bote' and where
ever he found a room that was open
he went in and purloined whatever
he could that was of any value to
them. Then he would throw them
out of the window where his confed
erates were ready to hustle off with
the same. In this manner he secured
the pants and vest. He also threw
out an overcoat, but when a break
was made to get away with it they
found the family's big dog guarding
it, and they failed to make way with it.
The officers were apprised of the
raid made upon the house and they
gave chase but in some manner the
scoundrels eluded pursuit. One fellow
was arrested but as he had nothing
upon his person to signify that he was
one of the gang he was released. So
far the villains have made good their

The open season for quail began yes
terday, according to the provisions of
the amended law, and will close No
vember 30, at which time the open
season for prairie chickens also closes.
While it is lawful to kill quail for the
next two weeks, fishing cannot be le
gally indulged in until April 1. The
season for fish closed yesterday. Hunt
ers may not kill squirrels at any time
during the year, owing to the bill in
troduced by Senator Jones of Otoe
county, but the law permits the kill
ing of wolves and coyotes and author
izes a bounty for their destruction and
permits the killing of foxes, wild cats,
skunks and rabbits at any time. The
open season for water fowl closes April
15, except for snipe, which closes May
State Can't Tax Cars.
The United States supreme court
has just decided an important ques
tion in the reversal of .the decision of
the Kentucky court of appeals. It is

Transit company against the com
monwealth of Kentucky, holding tbat

New Service Beeween Lincoln and Omaha
May Be Put On.
The visit of Vice-President Dan
Willard, Passenger Traffic Manager
P. S. Eustice and Superintendent of
Transporation Barnes of the Burling
ton to Omaha yesterday and the fact
that they held a conference with
otlicers of the Nebraska lines gave rise
tothe rumor that two new trains are
to be put in service soon between Lin
coln and Omaha, says the Lincoln
Journal. It is said that one train w ill
leave Lincoln for Omaha in the morn
ing, somewhere near 8 o'clock and
that another train will leave Omaha
for Lincoln about the same time. The
rumor that new trains will be put
on to meet a popular demand for more
frequent service is generally believed,
although the time for the arrival and
departure of these trains may not be
be exact. Other changes maybe made
in the winter card, which will be made
effective the first of the month.
Qualifications of Two Newly Selected
County Superintendents in Doubt.
There are two of the newly elected
county superintendents who may lose
their places because they are not
equipped with iirst grade county cer
tificates, as required under the provis
ions of the new certification law.
These persons took the special exam
ination just before the election day
and failed to pass in a few branches,
says the Lincoln News. The question
as to whether or not they can hold
their places is now before the attorney
general, who must decide whether or
not they shall have the right to take
the additional examination in the
branch in which they failed to carry,
as do other teachers who pass more
than three-quartersof the branches.
It is the usual practice to allow
other candidates to take an additional
examination and to date the certifi
cates from the time of the first exam
ination or the second at the option of
the county superintendent. If the
two candidates under consideration
have their certificates dated from the
first examination, it is believed that
they will be allowed to assume the
duties ol the otllcc without trouble. If
they are obliged to ('ate their certifi
cates from the second examination,
the graver question will be presented,
but it is declared that it may be ms
sible to construe the law to permit
them to qualify if they have the cer
tificates by the first of the year.
Another question arising is, whether
or not the minority candidates, who
were properly certificated, will be en
titled to the office, in the event that
the majority candidates are not.
The superintendent asserts tbat
there will be no partisanship about
the decision from the fact that one of
the officials-elect is a republican, while
the other is a democrat. This will
make it possible to act without incur
ring the charge of having favored the
candidates of any one party.
DISTRICT COURT NOTES
No Case of Pneumonia on Record.
We do not know of a single instance
where a cough or cold resulted in
pneumonia or consumption when Fo
ley's Honey and Tar had been taken.
It cures coughs and colds perfectly, so
do not take chances with some un
known preparation which may contain
opiates, which cause constipation, a
condition that retards recovery from a
cold. Ask for Foley's Honey and Tar
and refuse any substitute offered. F.

The Legal Grist Seems to be Grinding Out
District court convened Monday,
but it seems that very few cases have
been disposed of up to today.
In the matter of Ortha J. Worraan
against the unknown heirs of Alexan
der Kemp, deceased, et. al., issues
were found in favor of the plaintiff.
D. O. Dwyer was the plaintiff's attor
ney, and JudgeC. T.Dickison appeared
for the defendants. The case was hot
ly contested, and the home attorney
proved a winner from the start to the
In the case of L. D. Bennett against
John D. Tutt, et. al., the plaintiff was
awarded a judgment for the sum of
$1,620.90, secured by a mortgage on
four lots in South Park.
The case of the Acme Harvester
Company against H. II. Carroll, et. al.
was commenced yesterday afternoon,
but has not been decided. The suit
was brought to recover on note given
for a threshing machine.
The case of Connally against Brisbin
is now on trial. This is a very im
portant case and is the means of
bringing a large number of witnesses
from Murray and vicinity to town.
The suit involves the possession of a
small tract of land adjoining the vil
lage of Murray. It is very doubtful if
a decision in this case is reached today
on account of the large number of
witnesses to be examined. Byron
Clark is the attorney for the defend
ant and Matthew Gering appears for

When a man leaves a town and gets
it into Ids "noodle"' that all business
will cease as soon as the echo of his

he is usually disappointed. What a
pitiable soul is lie who is envious and
jealous of his fellow man's success.
How little a man must feel after he
has vented his speen on his former
