ON ROLL GALL
CITY COUNCIL VOTED FIVE TO
TOUR AGAINST PASSAGE
OF THE MEASURE.
HAD BEEN UP FOR SOME TIME
Transacted Other Routine Business
at Meeting Last Night and
rri-m Tuesday's Daily. , ...
The last councilman from the fur-
therest removed district in thp city
passed under the wire last night as
the gavil in the hands of the Mayor
tapped for order, and there being no
objections to the minutes, the busi
ness session of the city dads was
formally opened with the reading of
a communication from the City At
torney, in which he gave his opin
ion that in the suit filed by George
J. Oldham against J. S. Straub, for
the quieting of title to some lots on
Chicago avenue, in which' the' city
had been made a defendant, only in
cluded one lot and on that the city
Lad no claim, so therefore it did not
affect the city in the least. The
communication was ordered placed
City Clerk's Report.
The report of the City Clerk was
next in order, it being as follows:

Next followed the Treasurer's re
port which showed registered war
rants to the amount of $44,342.65
and credits to offset the same of $11,-
117.94, including an outstanding
loan of $5,000.00 to W. II. Rainey
and $6,117.9 4 which is now due on
the different paving district taxes
Deducting this amount from the
outstanding warrants shows a deficit
in that account yet of $33,224.71
A summary of the various funds of
the city showed that in some there
vere credit balances aggregating a
total of $19.S02.49, while in others
overdrafts existed to the amount of
$17,04 0.87. This leaves a net bal

Police Judge Report .
The report of the police judge
showed lines collected during the
month amounting to $36.00 and the
costs collected totaling $2S.00. This
made $64.00 for the month.
The Judiciary committee asked
for further time in the matter of the
mule belonging to Peter Clause, and
also the removal of the house, which
it is claimed extends onto both the
avenue and the alley. They offered
a report in the matter of the claim

Phone Red 65., Gtcrlinc Nebraska
Of P. M. Welsheimer, stating mat
the grading which was done had im
proved his property in some places,
and it Avould only require a small
amount of work to fix it in others,
recommending that his claim for
damages be not allowed. This con
troversy grew out of the lowering of
the alley between the property Mr.
Welsheimer owns and that of J. H.
McMaken and Sons, on which their
new garage is located.
Councilman Luchinsky reported
that, after examining the problem of
the light on the Rock Bluff road, he
considered it unwise to move it at
this time as it is at a dangerous por
tion of the road, and. when the street
shall have been vacated, it might
then be placed somewhere else, but
not until then.
lie also reported that there had
been a string of poles run from the
city to South Park, and that the
wires would be strung soon so as
to accomodate some ten families, it
requiring forty-two poles to string
the wires upon. '
The next order of business was re
ports from special committees and
under this heading the Coal com
mittee through its chairman John
son, reported, that one hundred tons
of coal had been ordered four weeks
ago, but that no acknowledgement
had been received of the receipt of
the order. He also reported that he
had written to Iowa and Missouri
firms regarding coal and had not re
ceiyed any reply.
Mayor Sattler replied that C. L.
Sharpe had reported purchasing
coal from this particular mine, and
stated they never made any acknow
ledgement of the order, but, when
they could, they shipped the coal.
The clerk had also written and had
not received a reply. The Mayor re
quested the committee to go to the
Plattsmouth members . of the Cass
county Fuel committee, who are II
A. Schneider and-A. G. Cole, and as
certain if more coal cannot be se
cured by the dealers here, it being
reported that there is but very little
coal in the city at present.
' ' Bills Paid
The following claims were allow
ed and the clerk instruced 'to draw
warrants in payment of the same

New Park Flag
' Harris called attention to the mat
ter of there being a flag pole in Gar
held park from which there was
nothing floating and stated that
good many had cited the fact to him
and asked that the Park commission
ers be instructed to place a flag up
on the pole. This motion was sec
onded by Councilman Beeson of the
Fifth and promptly carried so a new
flag may be expected to float from
there in a short time. From the
way many of the strings look which
people have placed out as fiag3 some
time back, they should have a cdm
mittee get after them. Fine adver
tisement it is for a city like Platts
mouth, to have some one come here
and see the dirty strings hanging to
the staffs, while we call ourselves
lovers of the National Colors. It
looks like we had better clean house
Vorndran of the Third called at
tention to the matter of cleaning the
walks of drifted snow, and the clerk
was instructed to have the street
commissioner have a notice insert
ed in the paper calling attention to
the ordinance which makes it com
pulsory on the part of property ow
ners to have the walks cleaned.
Welfare Resolution Killed
Then came the reading of the Pub
lic Welfare resolution, it being a
substitute for the Welfare Ordinance
which a committee had offered some
time ago. After the reading of the
ordinance, it being the third, by the
clerk, Mayor Sattler asked that the
roll be called, and while the clerk
was preparing for that action, Coun
cilman Weber, of the Second said he
would like a word before the voting
was proceeded with, and he address
ed the council in sum and substance
as follows: I think we are a peace-
loving community and that since the
elimination of the saloon, we arc as
peaceable and law-abiding people in
Plattsmouth as you will find in the
state of Nebraska. Especially did he
emphasize and commend the fact that
since the saloon has gone the people
have all continued peaceable and
said he thought there are no deeds
against the dignity of the people but
are now covered by state laws and
city ordinances, it already being in
the province of the Mayor and the
police department to look after the
things the resolution provides for.
He. was followed by Johnson ofthe
Fourth, who said that he. like Mr
Weber, thought we are getting along
well enough and that we should not
find it necessary to attempt to crys
talize sentiment into law, but should
wait until the state passes laws and
then conform our ordinances to the
higher authority. He also gave it as
his opinion that we have a much bet
ter town now than existed when the
saloons were running.
Councilman Buttery, of the Sec
ond, said that he understood certain
portions of the proposed ordinances
were to have been left out of the
resolution and he thought that they
should be out. It was explained to
him that those obnoxious portions
objected to had been left out. He
said that when prohibition had been
carried and the saloons eliminated
from the city, the peace loving peo
ple should be satisfied, but instead
more laws were wanted curtailing
the priviliges, and like Johnson, he
thought that while the offices creat
ed by the resolution were to be non
salaried ones,v yet the execution of
the ordinance, when once passed
would entail some expense to the
city, whereas in such times as these
we should look to the conservation
of our every resource.
Mayor SaUIer said that the pass
ing of the resolution would doubt
less be of great value to the city and
its citizens, he having in mind an in
stance where the chief of police had
been notified of a condition, and up
on going to the place, they found
woman with five children, the child
ren being nearly naked, using a box
for a table and with no bed, or cup
noaru. ineir main article was an
old steel range that had been given
them and it was in a deplorable con
dition. Such conditions as this, he
said the arm of the law could not
grapple with successfully, but when
the particular matter he spoke of ha
been turned over to a committee of
ladies, such as the resolution sought
to create, the family was given re
lief and cared for.
After this somewhat lengthy dis
cussion of the subject, the roll call
finally came on the resolution. The
first councilman to respond was Pat
terson, of The First, who hesitated
for some little time and then cast
his vote against the resolution. He
was followed by Buttery who also
voted against the resolution, while
Mauzy of the First voted for it and
Weber of the Second against it. Bes
tor of the Third voted for it while
Vorndran, of the Third, did not seem
to know what he wanted to do about
it, and passed without voting. John
son of the Fourth voted against it,
while Luchinsky supported the reso
lution as did also Harris, but Beeson
voted negatively on its passage.
I his gave- four votes for the
resolution and three against it, while
lone was neither for nor against, or
at least didn't so express himself, and
the resolution was lost.
There being nothing else to claim
attention before the meeting the
council concluded its labors for the
evening. , - . .
