The Conference of Big Men
in the National Capitol
The conference of governors of the
states and territories, now in session at
Washington is a unique assembly alike
in object and in constitution. Never
before have the executive heads of all
the commonwealths of the union met in
Washington or elsewhere for any pur
pose, and never before has a confer
ence representing every section of the
country as this been officially called to
gether for the purpose of arriving at a
comprehensive program for the con
servation of the national resources.
Thus the conference is an epoch mak
ing event in a double sense and doubt
less the proceedings of the sessions now
open in the historic east room, will be
watched, as they should be, with the
keenest interest by Americans of all
degrees and sections.
The scene should be worth commemo
. rating when the chief executive of the
world's greatest federation faces for
the first time in history the chief execu
tives of its forty-six constituent states,
all met to consult together of ways of
keeping for future Americans the herit
age of natural resources, which has
lifted America to her present place of
wealth and power. There are other
distinguished men present, too, among
them representatives of all the im
portant national organizations of one
kind and another, the welfare of
which depends upon national re
sources. The reason why the manufacturer is
interested in the conservation of our
natural resources is plain enough. In
fact his interest is, or ought to be, of a
direct personal kind for the result of
the policy adopted toward the national
resources will affect no one more im
mediately or more forcibly. Coal, iron
wood, oil, the products of the soil, these
are the things he must have to carry on
his business. Let the present wasteful
processes go on to the end pointed out
by our scientists and experts and the
factory chimneys will cease to smoke
and workshops close for lack of ma
terial. What this would mean to Ameri
ca's prosperity and place in the world
and incidentally to her
needs no imagination to see. His own
business interests, to say nothing of
his interests as a patriotic citizen, are
thus enough to make the question, of
conserving the national resources one
of the questions in which every fore
eighted business man and that means
every member of the National Associa
tion of Manufacturers, as a matter of
course must take the liveliest possible
J. W. Berger, of Nebraska City, the
manager of the Duff Grain company's
elevator at that place, passed through
the city today enroute for Louisville, to
assist in the repairing of their elevators
at that place which were wrecked in the
cyclone of Monday evening.
A special car will be run from Omaha to Kansas City over
the Missouri Pacific, and from there to Frisno, Texas over
the Santa Fe. Special half-fare rate for the round trip.
Come and go with us and see the greatest country on earth,

Lecture Course.
We are going to have another lecture
course for the coming year. Excellent
talent has been secured to appear
among the various numbers. It will
open with Adam Bede, ' the humorist
of the national house of representa
tives. Following him comes one of the
greatest pulpit orators in this western
country, the man with a message,
Matt Hughes. After them the Oriole
Quartette, a very talented and highly
recommended ladies musical organiza
tion, then Fletcher, a very prominent
lecturer, who is held in very high
esteem by a number of our local friends
who have heard him. Following comes
Ralph Bingham and the magician,
Durno, about whom, as entertainers,
we need say nothing, since they are
so well and favorably known the
country over.
The lecture course this year had a
small deficit to meet, due largely to the
panic which followed soon after the
opening number, but those who have
farthered it and promoted it are deter
mined to carry it through for another
season and so are offering Eldredge,the
famous impersonator to the public of
Plattsmouth on Monday, the 18th, as an
aid in meeting the deficit of the past
season. He is an entertainer from be
ginning to the end, who has never fail
ed to please his audience wherever he
has appeared, and the present oppor
tunity is one not to be missed. Come
and hear him. Reserved seats on sale
Saturday 50c, 35c and 25c.
Gibbon House Changed Hands.
C. E. Frank of the Gibbon House
has turned over the hotel to Misses
Chloey and Rachael Tanner, who are
now in charge. These ladies we believe
will conduct the establishment in good
shape, keep the rooms in nice order
and it is hoped, make some money.
Mrs- Tanner will also come and help
the girls, and as all are hard workers,
their success ought to be insured.

The Mortal Remains of Miss Lizzie
Kroehler Laid to Rest in
Oak Hill Cemetery.
The last sad rites were celebrated
this afternoon over the remains of Miss
Lizzie Kroehler, who died last Monday
with a stroke of paralysis. The ser
vices were conducted jointly by the
Daughters of Rebekah, and the Loyal
Mystic Legion of America, each fur
nishing one-half the pall bearers, and
t Pev. II. D. Thomas, of the Christ
ii rch, delivering the funeral ad
dress. A large number of her friends
gathered to pay the last respects to her
memory. The choir of the Christian
church rendered some beautiful num
bers. The interment being made in Oak
Hill cemetery. With the calling of
this lady to the other world, goes one
whom all loved to respect and honor.
Ever seeking to do a kind act for some
one who needed it, and from the time
when the former stroke came, a very
patient sufferer, and regaining her
strength and health from will power
more than anything else. In her sphere
she will be missed by a multitude of
friends who know of her kindly acts
and good work. The pall bearers were
for the Rebekah's: J. P. Sattler, John
Busche and Frank Buttery, the Mystic
Legion were: Harry Messersmith,
Will Mason and Robert Brissey.
Going to Celebrate.
On July 4th there is going to be a
big celebration in Weeeping Water.
The Commercial Club is behind the
move, and the entertainment will be
such that everybody will want to come.
We don't get up cheap celebrations in
Weeping Water, but this one will be
bigger and better than all previous
efforts. Weeping Water Republican.
That's the way to do it. If you want
a successful celebration the business
men of the town must unite in working
to that end. Now, it is very easy to
determine whether our business men
will unite on having a celebration. If
they don't want one let them come out
and say so. People can just as well go
elsewhere to celebrate and spend their
money, no matter how much they dis
like to do so.
Little Ruth Monroe, at Pacific
Junction Has Arm Badly
A few days ago a dog which was sup
posed to be entirely gentle and harm
less, bit little Ruth, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Monroe of Pacific
Junction, inflicting some ugly wounds
on her right arm. Mrs. Wm. Barnhart,
the grandmother of the little girl, went
over to Pacific Junction today, and
took with her the mad-stone which Mr.
H. C. McMaken has with his collection
of curios, and with which the wounds
will be treated. Dr. E. W. Cook has
instructed Mrs. Barnhart how to apply
the stone and how to treat the wounds,
which is in charge of Dr. Bacon of
Pacific Junction. The dog belonged to
Wm. Anderson and it is thought it will
be killed.
Our "Rosey" Re-elected.
W. E. Rosencrans returned last
evening from Lincoln where, he was in
attendance at the Grand Lodge of the
Knights of Pythias and where he was
re-elected one of the trustees of the
grand lodge for a term of three years.
This makes another three years and
the office seems to come to him as
natural as carbe. But there is a reason
for it the people either in a public
office or a lodge like to know they have
a person who is competent, and will do
the work and do it right without any
question. Such a man is Mr. Rosen
crans. Tornado Views.
G. R. Olson, of the Olson Photograph
company, of this city, was right on

tention of everybody. This shows the
enterprise of which this company is pos
sessed, when it comes to being first on
the ground in such cases.
