CLUB ENJOYS A
Notwithstanding Band Concert
There Was a Very Fair
From Friday's Pally.
Iepite Hi,- fact that la-l even
ing was the starting of the band
concert season, there were unite a
number present at the meeting of
the Commercial club at Coates'
half to discuss matters of in
terest to the city and its residents.
The committee that has been out
soliciting funds for the mainten
ance of band concerts reported
that they had met with very good
success so far in the work of rais
ing the money for the concerts,
but still lack considerable of
enough to carry mil the summer's
program, but still have the Bur
lington shops to canvass, where
they box s have ery generously
responded in the past few sea
sons. One of the chief matters of in
terest before the meeting was the
discussion of the matter of hav
ing houses erected in the city that
could be used for rental purposes,
as the demand for places is far
greater than the supply, and every
day there is inquiries at the dif
ferent real estate ollices for
places of this kind, and the new
resident moving in here find
themsehes up against it for a
place jo live. The matter was
thoroughly discussed and a com
mittee appointed to lake the mat
ter up with the men in the city
who desire to make an investment
and to interest them in the matter
of putting up several cottages for
rental. There is no doubt that a
large number of houses could be
rented at a very satisfactory figure
that would insure Jo the person
erecting them a handsome return
for t heir invest ment.
The transportation committee
of the club was also authorized to
Deering and McCormick Mowers. Come
in and see the latest DeeriDg I have had a
large run on these mower.

take up with the head ollices of
the Missouri I'aeitic at St. Louis
the question of better train serv
ice for the county over that road.
The Missouri Pacific has been
operating their train over the
Weeping W'aler-Louisville line to
connect at the last-named place
with the Burlington train into
ibis city, but this is far from what
is desired and now this railroad
company has applied to (be stale
railway commission for permis
sion to return to their old sched
ule that would cut out the Bur
lington connection. The matter
has been discussed several times
with the minor ollicials of the
company, but without result, and
it has been determined finally to
apply to President Bush himself
in an effort to secure relief of
-oine soil to lhe counly so as lo
allow tin' passengers to reach
Plattsmouth with greater ease, as
at present it. takes two days from
some localities to make the round
trip, owing- to the poor service.
On the matter of the paing of
tin? alleys in the business part of
the city the large majority of the
members were unanimous in de
claring for this much-needed im
provement, and as the question
was agitated some t ime ago, it was
decided o revive the petition and
see what could be done in the way
of fixing up the alleywavs in
proper shape, as under the pres
cut conditions they are, in muddy
weather, almost impassable in
spots, and with paving' there this
could be largely overcome. This
is one thing that has long been
needed: the sooner the paving- is
carried out the belter for the im
provement of the business section
and for the better handling- of the
draying and delivery of goods, a
great deal of which is done in
The club also discussed for
several minutes the desirability of
having the sewers on Chicago and
Washington avenues extended, as
well as taking' steps to see what
could be done in the way of hav
ing the avenues paved and placed
in shape for travel in all kinds of
weather, and this proposition
should be taken up and pushed by
the council and citizens residing
along these thoroughfares.
