ACTING MAYOR SATTLER'S STAND Tells Journal He Stands on During the past few months there been considerable talk in and around the city as to my position on the lighting question, the present and most luiporlaut question now before the city council, and as I have never made a statement in print as to my position, I take this opportunity of In forming the people and taxpayers of the city of Plattsmouth, as is commonly termed, "just where I am at." I contend for a proposition that will light the entire city, not one selected portion, and that with elec tricity, and not gas, also that the can and will be furnished for $1,500 per year, if not by the Ne braska Lighting Company, by some one who will for that price. There is now in the city treasury $1,600, placed there by the taxpayers of the city, as a lighting fund, as per the levy made by the council about one year ago; and that is why I have tak en the position that all sections of our city is entitled to light. Ice Cutting Resumed. From Wednesday's Pally. This morning was a much more agreeable one that has been experi enced for the past few days. The thermometer stood at fifteen above zero at the depot at eight o'clock and a south wind was blowing. While the wind was penetrating and chilling it had lost much of Its coldness In the night. The weather indications for today are for fair and warmer and for Thursday Indicating cloudiness, with warmer in west portion. This seems to indicate a cessation of the cold snap for several days at least, a welcome change to most people. Ice cutting was again resumed this morning, F. G. Egcnborger's forces commencing cutting at their field opposite the city while Col. H. C. McMaken's forces were at work on the straight lake, getting a su perior quality of ice about ten inches in thickness. Col. McMaken, who is an ardent admirer of Hicks, the St. Louis weather prophet, says that there Is no doubt of there being all the ice in the world this winter tnd people need not worry over the su pply being short. He says that Prof. Hicks has hit the weather to the dot every time this winter and tha h has absolute faith in thers being more ice than be handled. Running: Gets Good Ones. Senator Banning landed well in the selection of committees of the senate, and bids fair to make a record as one of the workers of that body. He is made chairman of the commit tee on Highways, Bridges and Fer ries, one of the most important of the senate and is also a member of the committee on Engrossed and En rolled bills of the Judiciary com mittee probably the most important committee In the senate, Public Lands and Buildings another espec ially important committee, State Prison, University and Normal Schools another committee which will have its work cut out. for it, and Drainage. It can be seen that he drew excellent committees throughout and that his influence in the legisla ture will be much felt. Mrs. Nemetz Operated Upon. From Wednesday' Pally. Word has been received from John Nemetz, in attendance at the bed side of his wife in Omaha, where she was operated upon yesterday, that Mrs. Nemetz was operated upon at 12 o'clock and passed through the ordeal nicely. The operation was a critical one and the lady stood it remarkably well. While it is too early yet to venture a prediction as to her complete recovery, there Is every reason to believe that she will successfully weather the illness and that the operation will bo a com plete success. This Is the hope of her many friends w ho heard the news of her successful coping with the operation with Joy. Home Interest Inn Figures. Frrim Wednesday's Pally. Register of Deeds Schneider has compiled some very interesting fig ures on the mortgnge Indebtedness of the county and city for the past year. They show that during the past year there has been filed In the county 158 farm mortgagee amount iug to $118,116 uhllo there was re leased 213 mortgages amounting to $4 40,117. Of city mortgages there was filed 116 of the amount of $!)!, S21 and released 116 amounting to $70,242. This showing would Imll cate that while the farming Interests are reducing their mortgage Indrbt edness the city folks aro adding to theirs. Readers Where Light Question I am also in favor of the company securing the city contract be regu lated in some manner as to the prices on rates made the private consumer, for both light nd power. Also in favor of a reduction of the gas rate to $1.50 per thousand cubic feet, which seems to be the estab lish rate adopted by other cities of our class in the state. I am In favor of the home com pany first, last and all the time if they are willing to accept such com pensation from the city and the pri vate consumers as other applicants are willing to do. What I want Is a contract that will be right, now, and all time to come. One that will give the people the right prices for light, fuel and power. Such a contract is what the people and taxpayers want, and I believe they are entitled to the same. Yours truly, John P. Sattler, Acting Mayor. Ice Crop Being Gathered. From Wednesday's Pally. The Burlington is now harvesting large quantities of ice at Crystal Lake near Dakota City, and this ice is being used to fill the ice houses of the company in eastern Nebraska. It is of the correct thickness and conies from a bass lake of dear wa ter. A Sioux City company that has the harvesting contract has placed a large plant there for cutting and loading, and any quantity can be se cured. Reports yesterday from Crys al Lake near Hastings is that is of harvesting thickness and some will be taken from that place for Hast ings storage houses. The company will get ice at Curtis for the Mc Cook division houses. Unusual is the report from Curtis. There ice usually forms long before it is pos sible to secure it in eastern Nebras ka, but this year where twelve Inch Ice Is being harvested in the eastern half of the state tfie Ice at Curtis Is said to lie but nine inches thick Thicker Ice will be secured there however, in a day or two, as it is now reported to befreezind rapidly Before ice had been formed in eastern Nebraska twelve Inch ice was reported at Marsland, four hundred miles away from the Billings line, bast year a large quantity was brought to Lincoln from Marsland because it could not be secured from other places. The ice field at Crystal Lake, Da kota City, Is looked upon by Burling ton people as quite an acquisition Ice can be secured there every year before it can be harvested in this ter ritory, and the air line and water grade from Ashland makes it pos sible for the company to get it there with little loss of time and with a haul but little more than one hun dred miles. A Cure for Misery. "I have found a cure for the mis ery malaria poison produces," says R. M. James of Louellen, S. C. It's called Electric Bitters and comes in 50c bottles. It breaks up a case of chills or billious attack in almost no time; and it puts yellow Jaundice clean out of commission." This great tonic medicine and blood purifier gives quick relief in all stomach, liver and kidney troubles and the mlseary of lame back. Sold under guarantee at F. O. Frlckc & Co.'s drug store. Squirrels Kat leather. From Wednesday's Dally. L. F. Fitch was in the city today from his farm below Rock Bluffs, looking after some business matters Among other things which brought him to town was to have some har ness repaired which the squirrels had been making a meal on. While It Is hard to believe he exhibited sev eral pieces of harness which the an Imals had eaten through, In fact, eating out a piece of leather nearly a foot in length in one place and more than an Inch In width. He finds that they have become a regulur p.'st and Is anxious for the legls lature to so amend the law as to per mlt their slaughter. Their activity had cost him some little money to repair. A lllgliher Health Ivel. "I hnvo reached a higher health level since I began using Dr. King's New Life Pills," writes Jacob Spring er, of West Franklin, Maine. " They keep my stomach, liver and bowels working Just right." If theso pills disappoint you on trial money will bo refunded at F. O. Frlcko & Co'i drug store 25c. ("s County Appointed. In the senate several Cass County people have secured good positions for the coming session. This morn ing's papers contain a list- of senate employes among whom are noted the following Cass County people. There are probably others whose names are unknown to this paper. Misa May Vallery, copyist; John Urpily, custodian; Carrie Banning, copyist. Whether there are others fortunate enough to land Jobs in the sen ate remains to be seen, as the list published does not state where the several appointees are from.

Earl Clark of this city has taken the agency of the National Fidelity & Casualty Company of Omaha, Neb. for this city, Cedar Creek and Louis ville and expects In the future to devote his attention to the building up of their business in this section. It is quite needless to say a good word for Mr. Clark w ho is well known here, having been born and raised in this city. He Is a young man of ability and integrity, one well quail fled to write the particular form of insurance this company is making a speciality of and in every respect capable of making them a splendid agent. The company he represents Is a Nebraska corporation and con sidered a good, safe and conservative company. The policy contains all the usual grounds which such policies cover and is quite liberal in its pro visions. Anyone contemplating health or accident insurance would do well to let Mr. Clark talk to them. For Reciprocal Demurrage.

Some time ago mention was made In these columns of the transfer of the restaurant from Eary Barclay to Hatt & Osborn and the statement was that theso gentlemen would find It hard to excell the excellent ser vice established by Mr. Barclay. The Journal Is now glad to note that the new firm has made good. It ha kept the patr6nage established by Mr. Barclay anil added' to it. This has been done by close attention to business, the setting of a good and trauiittble table and excellent gen eral service. It is not too .uuch to say that the present meals set in this cafe are far superior to tlioso set by any other establishment of a like character In the city or in fact. In any city of Its size in this section. The bills of fare are changed every day and something new is always ready for service to the poojib. The proprietors have learned that it payi to vary the things furnished tho pat rons and have found the tradv ap preciates It. In addition to regular meals, the house is prepared to serve short orders including everything that is eatable. The prices have been fixed at a reasonable scale and every effort Is made to please the public. As both the proprietors are young men, they are alive and full of gin ger and want to make the business a winning one. To this end they are trying to secure the public patron age, and they really deserve It. Not alone are they accommodating, but their waiters are also polite and obliging while their chefs are the best to be had In tho city. With polite services and excellent cuisine, little moro will be asked by the public. A trial of their service will result In established patronage be yond question. Largest in the World. "We have what is declared to be tho largest lee house in tho world over at my home town of Ashland, Neb.," said J. B. LaChapelle, the former well known Mills county editor. while making a call yesterday at the Tribune office. We naturally asked him for some of the particulars. The Ice house Is the property of the Swift Packing company, and if It Is not the largest one In the world it certainly Is a mammoth one any way. Mr. LaChapelle said the force of men began putting up the annual pack there this week. To completely fill the huge building requires about one month and gives employment to 375 men. The building is over three fourths of a mile in length some 4,000 feet to be exact. It is 34 feet wide and 39 feet high. It has a ca pacity of 100,000 tons. The building Is divided luto 20 rooms or compartments, each 200 feet long and having a capacity of five thousand tons. The Ice is taken from an artificial lake of 200 acres. The Ice Is now eight Inches thick. It Is said that this Ice house has only been filled to Its full capacity twice In twelve years. Mills County Tribune. Rank Foolishness.
