From Fii. lay's Iaily.
Notwithstanding the inclemency of
the weather last, night, every one ot
ti e legislators of the city of Platts
n out h were at their posts eager for
the fray, and there being no objec
tions to the minutes of the meeting
before, an order was read calling for
t-.i extra session on account of there
h iving been none on Christmas eve.
" The first bit of work was the mak
ing of the Farmer's State Bank, a
bank of deposit for the funds of the
The nuance committee not", being
ready to report, the regular schedule
was porsued, going down the line
until the Judiciary committee was
reached, when they had a mite to
say about the house of Peter Claus,
which is claimed to be too long for
his lot, extending into the alley north
and the avenue on the south. The
report indulged quite an amount of
myrtli at the expense of his mule
and corn stalks as well as the old
country style of keeping the animals
so near the domicile. The matter
was finally settled by giving him un
til the first of Hay to arrange his
house to conform to the lines of the
avenue and alley.
When the police committee had
been reached they recommended the
Finding back cf the reports of the
Chief of Police, and the Police judge,
to arrange to conform with each oth
er as they varied in the amounts of
the., fines. This was done and they
w ill review the matter when it comes
from them later.
The Coal Proposition.
The special committee which has
boon appointed for some time on the
proposition of getting coal, reported
that they had gotten nowhere but
were up a blind alley, Avith no one
to answer their appeals for coal. The
mines to which they have written
have not' answered their correspond
ence, and they are much discouraged
regarding the matter. Mr. Johnson

eastern Nebraska at.very reasonable prices
and on good terms, that will increase in value
-because, we raise the crops, every year.
Take your car and drive to Sterling, Neb.,
and get back home the same day. Buy a
farm near home that you can look after.

coal was greater than the supply,
and that the miners under this con

JIayor Sattler recommended the
going to the County board of the fuel
administration, and seeing what
could be done. In reply Councilman
Bestor said that the "Waterman Coal
and Lumber Company had made ap
plication to the county board through
its chairman, II. A. Schneider for as
sistance in the matter, and then Mr.
Schneider had promised to go to
Omaha personally today and see what
he could do towards getting a supply
of coal for this city. The question
of getting some one to embark in
the handling of wood was discussed.,
and after this had been thrashed
out, by suggesting that all the avail
able wood be used, and that the far
mers be induced to market what
wood they could, the matter was
dropped as regards the wood ques
tion. Mayor Sattler suggested that
the stores close at six o'clock, in
order to conserve the fuel, as a!'
the business could be done by that
time, and if everybody closed it
would not work an injustice against
He also suggested the closing of
houses cf amusement, with the in

fuel used by the people over towr

Bestor said that there were now
seven car numbers in sight includ
ing all the dealers, and that it took
a car a day for the most rigid econo
my, for the use of the city, and that
if the seven cars arrived here in a
week, we would be in just the same
position as we are at the present.

Although 'Mr.- Olson had askedfor
