Great Enthusiasm Displayed by the Younger Members of Club
Who Seemed to be Greatly in Evidence.
The meeting of the commercial II. Falter and John Hatt, Jr., are
)6 laat night was one of the moat!
successful ever held by that organi--v.aXkm
despite the cold weather and
had conditions. There were a great
i!Mf of the new members present
and tor their special benefit the con--etftutlon
and by-tews were read. The
total membership . was well repre--Heated
and the older members were
-nell pleased with the enthusiasm
k how 11 by the younger members of
the dub. The meeting discussed
a great many things including pro
jected good roads Into the city from
ferry landing and from the coun
as. This subject was one which
H"sryene was deeply Interested In
nC8 the committee which had the
ter in charge, reported that ne
aUona were in an advanced stage
tOLh the county and the city for a
nd wagon road. The matter of im
gwjring the avenues by the use of
Unshed rock was debated at consid
arable length and a difference of
tlnlon developed as to its efficacy
Tae committee report was presented
Hon. R. B. Windham. The ex
ayrienre of many who drive into
fee city was cited to show that road
Improvement must be made so trade
wfth the country can be built up.
The report of the treasurer of
the club disclosed that the sum of
t37.99 was in the treasury, a very
Mattering showing with prospects for
heavy additions in a short time.
The committee appointed to have
9!e alterations and repairs made on
the M. E. Smith factory, reported
that the work had been done with
the exception of the furnace which
was not yet in place but which would
le pushed with all possible speed.
'The remaining repairs and improve
ments had been completed and with
toe exception of the furnace the
factory will be open in full blast.
The hustling committee which
was to raise the funds for the Smith
factory reported $538.00 raised,
which Is a good showing as they
have a number of people to see
yet. They will need several hun
dred dollars In addition to what
hey now have and this will be raised
without much trouble, they believe,
Altogether they are highly pleased
at the outlook and believe it is but
a question of a few days when they
will have ample funds on hand for
the carrying out of their contract.
Jhe membership committee made
a report which was received with
cheers and they are entitled to the
V warmest commendation for the good
work which they have done. They
yidded fifty new names to the list
just as they agree to do. George
entitled to particular credit for this
fine showing. They have been un
tiring in their work. As was said
before a large number of the new
members were present and display
ed much interest in the meeting.
The nw members are new blood and
tby will doubtless take hold of the
club and force It to be a real, live
body In the community.
The committee on the banquet re
ported that matters were progress
ing nicely and the banquet to be
given on the night of November 29,
promises to be the largest and best
ever given by the club. The com
mittee which consists of Messrs.
John Nemetz, Henry A. Schneider,
and C. W. Baylor, reported they had
sold fifty tickets with every pros
pect of running the total up to 150
before the date set. A misunder
standing seems to have gotten abroad
as to who is entitled to a seat at
the festal board. The club and the
committee wants it distinctly under
stood the banquet is for any live
citizen of Plattsmouth whether he
is a member of the club or not. It
is to be graced with some splendid
orators and there will 'be talks from
sound business men. The intention
of the club managers is to have all
Plattsmouth people Interested in the
banquet and the club meetings and
there is no limit placed on the mem
bership. Anyone who wants to help
Plattsmouth and help himself is ask
ed to send in his name for member
ship and to attend the banquet.
Tickets for the banquet can be
obtained from Messrs. Nemetz, Bay
lor or Schneider, and the charge is
so small that everyone should at
tend. The banquet is guaranteed
to be one of the best ever given in
the city from every standpoint,
Another thing which seems to
have gotten abroad is that the mem
bership is the club is limited to bus!
nees men. This is a mistake. Any
citizen of Plattsmouth can belong
and the club Is not a pink tea affair
It is organized to do good for Platts
mouth and Plattsmouth people and
everyone is Invited to enroll his name
on the list. The meetings are not
dress suit affairs, but gatherings' of
the live men of the city, and all are
invited. The club has secured one
good factory for the city and it is
on the trail for more, and if any
one here wants to help Plattsmouth
and help himself and improve the
value of his property let him sub
scribe himself as a member of the
commercial club. The club is mov
ing for good roads and factories and
these all help make business and in
crease property value.

occasion the handsome dining room
the Donnelly home had been tast

graceful festoons of these dainty
decorations being suspended from
the center of the room to the corn

the table being also decorated in
green leaves and handsome flowers,
the members of the party were in
costumes of the Fatherland and pre

The supper was enlivened by the

The toasts were something quite out

point that the Nehawkaltes, Union
ites, Barneyltes and Perultes, who
come to the city and load up with
an expectation of getting back the
same evening, will have to arrange
to stay over or make up their minds
that they will go home sober. This
may be hard on some of them, but
it is something that is fast coming
all over the country and the people
who come intoxicated and expect to
travel will have to first learn to stay
sober before they try to purchase
transportation and start on their
journey. In some states it is a
fineable offense, this state being one
of them, for any person to drink
intoxicants while on a train. Ne
