NOT HAVE CARNIVAL
Great Disappointment to Red Men,
Who Had Already Incurred
11 ' Great Expense. '
, Tin) dale of holding the sired
carnival has been indefinitely
postponed for reasons unexpected
by Hie committee in charge of the
big event. Saturday afternoon,
and very late in the afternoon, the
C., B. & (J. II. II. company, by its
local attorneys, tiled petition in
the olllcc of the clerk of the dis
trict court of Cass county praying
a restraining order, which was
granted, the hearing to take place

The parlies made defendants

officer of I lie Missouri Tribe of

J. II. Ilnlstrom, E. J. Hichey,
George Tushinsky, C. A. Johnson,
William Shea and John Yniidran.
The order refers to Hichey op

The lied Men ' t once com
municated with the managers of
the Mid-West Carnival company
'at Omaha, and they decided not to
bring their company to Platls
moutli until some place is selected
which will not he objected to bv
anyone who can have a right to
hring a suit, to prevent them.
The action is a source of disap
pointment lo the lied Men, as
considerable pains to advertise
the coming of (he carnival had
heen taken by the committee on
arrangements and the posters
had heen sent broadcast through
the towns of the county, and it
was expected that a big crowd
would be in the city during the
week. On the other hand there
are many good citizens opposed
lo holding the carnival, some giv
ing one reason and others an
other. The writ does not apply to the
side streets oilier than Riehov
street, and the Red Men could yet
go ahead if the carnival company
would come up to their contract,
but the manager informed a mem
ber of t he com in it t on arrange
ments this morning that ttie gate
keeper at Omaha had decamped
, Saturday night with the gate re
ceipts and that, they could not
bring all of the attractions ad
vertised, and for that reason he
thought it best not to bring any
of it. A part of the carnival,
which bad been out in the stale
for (lie Fourth, arrived over the
M. P. last evening, but did not
unload, and after communicating
with the manager left this morn
ing for Omaha.
N. It. Since the above was 'put
in typo il has been learned that a
member of the committee on ar
rangements was called up Satur
day night by II. C. LeBurno, agent
for the Mid-West Carnival com
pany, who signed up the contract
for this place with the Red Men,
and informed them that the com
pany was all lorn up; that they
would not be able to put the shows
on as advertised, and asked to
have (he contract canceled, which
was agreed to by the member of
the committee. Yesterday, as well
as today, other parties connected
with the Mid West company have
been in communication with the
Red Men and desire to go ahead
with the show.. A. C. MoGuigan
was to have been here on the tlrst
train this afternoon, but missed
the train. And as wo go to press
it seems probable that arrange
ments will be made to go on with
the carnival should satisfactory
arrangements be made when Mr.
A VERY IG POOR
Catches Large Fish,
a party or naitsniouin young
men went boating, fishing and
swimming and seining on the Mis
souri river yesterday and cuuKht
a number of mammoth llsh weigh
ing 25 pounds each. They also
caught a few mosquoito bites and
also just, a few blisters from old
Sol's penetrating rays. Some of
the gentlemen could not comfort
ably wear their clothes today, and
it. was rumored that, no cigars
were made today, as the maker's
back was too raw. The Ho-Ha
motor boat of Roy Holly and se
veral row boats were required by
the party to bring the tlsh to
shore. Those participating wore:
Kmons Ptak, who caught the big
gest tlsh; II. Brmkinan, Anton

The Boosters Defeated by a Score
of 7 to 1 by the A. O. U.
' W. Team.
i t '
About the poorest base ball
game of the season was pulled off
at the city ball park yesterday af
ternoon, at which lime the Boost
ers met the A. O. U. W. team of
Omaha and were defeated by a
score of 7 to i. It is true the
visitors were one of the strongest
teams that have played on the
Plattsmouth grounds this season
and put. up their usually strong
game, while ttie home team played
about the poorest game of the
Several very costly errors were
made in the first inning of the
game that, gave the visitors two
scores. There seemed to be no
life in the game from beginning
to end; perhaps the home, boys
had not fully recovered from the
effects of the long-winded game
of the Fourth. McCaig, the
twirler for Plattsmouth, injured
his arm to some extent on the
Fourth, and of course was not in
condition lo play the game yes
terday; he was very wild during
the first half of the game, during
which time the visitors made six
of their runs. At the first half of
the fifty inning MeCauley was
placed in the box and McCaig went
to first, after which the A. 0 U.
W.'s made only one run.
Another reason perhaps for the
poor playing by the homo team
was the iireak-un in their line
up from the past few games
played. Heal and Finder wore not
in their usual places, Dot son
playing center field and Whelan
on second. The next will be dif
ferent, and that's all we will have

Picnic at Gochenour Island.
A large crowd of people of this
city and vicinity -drove down to
Gochonour island the morning of
the Fourth for the purpose of
spending the entire day picnick
ing, and had a jolly time. They
took well-filled baskets with them
and had all kinds of good things
to eat, including cake, ice cream,
lemonade and some of J. K. Mc
Daniel's good cool drinks. The
children played all sorts of games
before luncheon was served, while
the boys engaged in a hot game
of ball. Those who enjoyed the

when all left the island and de

that they had celebrated the

CROPS GOOD III IS
Mrs. James Hodgert Injured.
.Mrs. James Hodgert met with
an unfortunate accident last Fri
day at her homo which resulted in
her receiving u discolored eye and
cheek. The painful accident oc
curred when Mrs. Hodgert step
ped to the medicine case and J ho
wind blew a door ajar behind her
and when she turned to leave the
case she collided with the door,
receiving n painful bruise over
her eye. The pain and shock al
most knocked Mrs. Hodgert down
and the injured eye soon grow
swollen and discolored.
Mrs. R. H. Pat ton and three
children departed for Chicago, Il
linois, and Torre Haute, Indiana,
Saturday, where they, will visit
relatives for three weeks, while
R. H. keeps bachelor's hall.
At St. Luke's Church.
The service at St. Luke's church
last evening was of unusual in
terest and was conducted by Rev.
W. W. Barnes of Nebraska City.
Rev. Barnes is one of Platts
nioulh's native sons, of which the
city is proud to claim as such.
Rev. Barnes' theme last, evening
was "The Spirit, the Water and
the Blood," and was elaborated in
ft most interesting and instructive
way. "The spirit," said the min
ister, "is Christ; the water, Chris
tianity, and the blood, I ho Chris
tian." The large chorus choir,
under the leadership of H. S. Aus
tin, rendered a beautiful anthem.
There was a large congregation
out, to hoar Rov. Barnes and the
service was most interesting
Wheat Good and Yield Very Fair,
and Corn Promises to Yield
Fairly, Well. 1
Excellent, yields of winter wheat
in many sections of Nebraska are
indicated in .reports Saturday,
based on grain already cut, which
show an average production of
from 15 to 30 bushels per acre.
Considering that 20 bushels an
acre is a Nebraska normal crop,
experts, view the wheal, situation
Between Lincoln and Nebraska
City, 15 to 30 bushels; between
Nebraska City and Atchison, 15
to 25 bushels; between Table Rock
and Red Cloud, 15 lo 30 bushels;
between Dewitt and Holdrege, 15
to 25 bushels: between Oxford
and Holdrege, 10 to 15 bushels.
Estimates of the entire Ne
braska crop are said lo be favor
able this week, but on account of
a few very low estimates, the
totals appear slightly less favor
able than a week ago.
Corn conditions reported have
the same favorable lone which
has characterized the country
opinion of the crop prospect since
the plant began to show green
above the ground.
Estimates of the crop are also
bearing up well as compared with
a week ago, in spite of the earlier
tendency lo estimate' low on ac
count of conditions at, an early
si age of I ho growth.
A composite view of the corn
situation as viewed after a care
ful comparison of reports from
more than 300 railroad agents in
practically every section of the
crop belt in 'Nebraska are as follows:
Eastern Nebraska, this week .5)1
per cent, last week 88 per cent;
central Nebraska, 92 per cent, 1)4
per cent; southern Nebraska, 88
per cent, 88 per cent; western
Nebraska. 88 per cent, 85 per cent.
All spring grains are sharing
in the optimistic opinion of the
railroad observers regarding the
crop planted this spring.
At least an average crop of
potatoes will be realized and the
prospects for the quality and
quantity of the second cut of
alfalfa remains good.
