Business Men Who Make Their
Money Here and Go Else
where to Spend It.
Announcement appears In today's
World-Herald of the celebration a.it
Sunday In Omaha by Mr. and Mrs. I.
Pearlman, of their silver wedding
anniversary. The Pearlman family is
well known in this city, Mr. Pearl
man having come to Plattsmouth
about thirty years ago, living here
continuously since that time up till
about three years ago. Mr. Pearl
inan and his family furnish only one
of a great many Instances of a simi
lar kind, in which men have come
to this town with practically noth
ing and by taking advantage of the
growth of the place and by care
fully inciting the people of the place
to patronize "homo merchants" have
acquired a small fortune that they
might finally depart and spend their
money in some larger city that had
never done them the slightest favor.
This custom of deserting the place
at the first sign of prosperity has
been the curse of this Just as !t has
of a great many other cities, and not
until the citizens of this town make
up their minds that here or nowhere
lies their success, and not until they
resolve to make this a home Indeed
and not a place to stay, will the
Interest in the real welfare of the
town be great enough to build up a
city worthy of tho r.anio. There is
absolutely no excuse for a man who
has mado a fortune from the earnings
of tho peoplo hero to grow too largo
for Plattsmouth In his old age and
move to Omaha or Lincoln to spend it
In speaking of the affair the
World-Herald says: "Mr. arid Mrs.
I. Pearlman celebrated their silver
wedding anniversary Sunday at their
home, 320 North Twentieth street.
Mr. Lewis Harris performed the
ceremony, In the presence of about
100 guests and Rabbi H. Grodzlnsky
delivered an address In regard to
their past twenty-five years of mar
ried life. Mr. and Mrs. Pearlman
and family moved to this city about
three years ago from Plattsmouth.
Since coming to this city they have
made a large circle of friends. For
this event the color scheme In the
parlors, green and' white; in the din
ing room, pink and white. At 6
o'clock a six-course dinner was serv
ed. They received many beautiful
Quite a Sum Subscribed.
For almost a year past the people
of the St. Lukes Episcopal church
in this city have had Impressed upon
them the necessity for some rather
extensive repairs upon their church
and the necessity also for a new
rectory. To the end of raising the
money for this work and for the
purpose nlo of ascertaining just
what measures ought to ho taken to
obtain the proper Improvements, the
men of the congregation met last
evening at the homo of W. L. Pick
ett and spent a social evening In dis
cussing the matter. About twenty
of the men of the church were pres
ent and after. they had talked the
matter over pretty thoroughly, a
subscription was started and before
the evening wbh over the contribu
tions had reaped to something over
$500 with an excellent prospect of
obtaining more. There is every like
lihood that the amount will foot up
lo J 1.000. This amount will bo
applied to the sum granted by the
vostry of the church at Its meeting
tomorrow evening, and tho whole
urn will be used to pny for the
necessary repairs upon the church.

Those Celebrated Land Frauds;.
From Tuesday's Dally.
News was received today that the
United States court of appeals had
for a second tirrie refused to grant
a rehearing In the case of the several
men charged with promoting land
frauds in the west part of this state.
These, men, Beven in number, were
Indicted several years ago, and a
great deal of attention was attracted
throughout this state by the trials
on account of the fart that all the
defandants were men well known in
this country, and that two of them,
Bartlett Richards and W. O. Com
stock, are very wealthy cattlemen
from the western part of the state.
Besides these two, five others were
Indicted, namely: C. C Jameson,
Aquilla Trlplett, Thomas M. Hunt
ington, Fred Hoyt and A. -IS. Todd.
These men are all will known, the
lust named being a former resident
of Coas county and ex-county com
missioner. All the defendants in the
various cases have been convicted by
the lower courts at different times,
and all of them have appealed their
cases to the United States court of
appeals. Huntington, yjho is a son
of Chancellor Huntington of the Ne
braska W'esleyan university, Hoyt
and Todd were tried in April, 1907,
and were found guilty. Huntington
and Todd were sentenced to pay a
fine of $1,000 and to be Imprisoned
in the Douglas county jail for three
months. ' Hoyt received only a line
The appeal of the cases were made
to the higher court upon alleged
error, but about four months ago the
appeal was denied and the defend
ants were all given a opportunity to
file a motion for a rehearing to the
same court. Now this motion for a
rehearing has been denied and all
that la left for the defendants to do
Is to apply to the supreme court for
a writ of certiorari, which practi
cally amounts to a motion for a new
trial. Comstock and Richards, un
less they can prevail for a new trial
will havo to pny a fine of $1500 and
remain In the Douglas county jail for
ono year. From the decision of the
circuit court It looks like all the de
fendants would have to undergo the
punishment of fine and Imprison
ment. It is quite generally believed
by thoso who knew Mr. Todd when
he lived here that he at least was
entirely Innocent of any intention or
conscious breach of the law. The
fencing of land In the section where
these frauds was committed was a
very common practice and It was
until the abuses of the privilege of
tltlo became very flagrant, that the
law was put to the test.

The county commissioners held
their regular meeting In this city
today, a full attendance of the board

the capture of the thief of the team

It was tho purpose of the board to ;
