i I r OEEK OF THE !. GULB LAST IH A MOST SUCCESSFUL OIIE 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 I M 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. I MUX. (Ledger.) B. li.

The railroads have issued instruc tions to their train men not to carry passengers that are intoxicated when they attempt to board the train. Last evening several men who came to the Missouri Pacific railway pas senger depot to board the north bound train were refused premls slon to get on the train and told to return to the ticket office and get their fare refunded. Over at the Burlington passenger depot the same It has come to a occasion the handsome dining room the Donnelly home had been tast ily decorated In red and white hearts, graceful festoons of these dainty decorations being suspended from the center of the room to the corn tn.' A dutch supper was served, the table being also decorated in green leaves and handsome flowers, the members of the party were in costumes of the Fatherland and pre sented an unique novel appearance. The supper was enlivened by the embers present toasting Miss lwicke.MlBs Mia Oering occupying the proud disposition of toastmlstress. The toasts were something quite out of the ordinary. In addition to the nop per, the members of the party nave Miss Fricke a shower of kitch en cleaning utensils including mops, brooms, old dutch cleanser and other like articles which she was sur prised to receive but which she duly appreciated.

W. 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 braska City News. Card of Thanks.
