$85,000; 9 in the fourth costing
$50,000 and 6 in the fifth costing

the money spent for repairs and city
improvements, the residence section
of Plattsmouth has contributed di
rectly and indirectely to the improve
ment and beautifying of the town
the no mean sum of $974,000. And
what hao been the result?- "Ten
years a?o," he said, "property could
be rented tor $3.00 to $10.00 per
month, whereas today it would re
quire from ?G to $30 to rent the
Fame places." Ten years ago he said
the delinquent taxes amounted to al
most $100,000, while at this time
they amount to only $3,200.
"Dury your hatchet," he said, "and
if you cannot say a good word for

Commenting briefly on the. talk of
21 r. Sat tier. Toast master Robertson
said that some years ago when Wm.
Ilaird came to this city as superin
tendent of the shops here he was
told to make the shops pay here or
they would be taken away, and i
w:is the fact that Mr. Baird mad
pood in his efforts that saved th
Uurlington shops with their hand
some payroll, from being moved else
where, complimenting Mr. Baird on
having done his part to make Platts
mouth prosperous
father M. A. Shine was next call
ed upon and in one of the most elo
ouent addresses we have ever heard
him make. raid tribute to the boy
who are defending Liberty, th
homes of our people, the flag w
reverence and adore that same flag
which, a.3 lie spoke, was in front, be
hind, overhead and all about th
audience. He said that the flag stood
lor Lite, Liberty and Peace and that
each color represented a high ideal
that the gray haired members of the
Grand Armv of the Republic had
made this flag glorious, handing
down to us pure, and it was, and is
our part to hand it down tq poster
ity clear, clean and rich in its rec
ord as the banner of a nation of de
termination and character. Whil
v.e are not paying the fullest meas
ure c i devotion that of giving our
life-blood which vies Avith the red of
the flag in brilliancy of color v.e
can do our share and it is up to us
to tlo it. Father Shine stated that
Germanv has been training for more
than forty years for this war, and
that thvi United States has had less
than forty weeks of actual prepara
tion, but, still, stands ready to enter
the conflict and will win in the in
evitable outcome.
He ulso said v.e have "jeen awak
ening more and more to the situa
tion in front of us. The government
:s asked of us the use of our money
and has offered to pay for such fa
vor. We have responded liberally to
th.- Liberty bonds, the V. M. C. A
the V. YV. C. A., the Knights of Co
lumbus and now to the War Savings
certificates and Thrift stamps. Now
comes another opportunity to help

of all tlir.t they meet this issue, as
tl.oy hr.vo others, squarely and fair

i -at per a nine, come torwaru and
pay jour proportion on the property
and monies which have been so lib
crally and generously given you by
Cod Almighty during the past year,

Professor G. E. DeWolf followed
with an adress touching on the rela-
t';n of the School and the Commun
ity, bringing out the relative prosper
iy of the educated and the unedu
cated. Prof. DeWolf used a lot of
statistic to prove the importance of
the schools and their relation to the
every day life, and to the commercial
value of the property, and the suc
cess of all commercial enterprises,
for one who would be willing to trust
his or her affairs in the hands of
seme one v. ho did not know what to
do vitii the problems which might
fact them. "The trained man," said
Mr. DeWolf, "is always worth the

was Dr. Edwin Maxey, who has been

than plea-cd with the rendition.
Then followed Judge Paul Jessen,
of Nebraska City. Mr. Jessen stated
he had kept in touch with Platts
mouth and its progress during the
past years, and that he was more
than glad to know the tdwn had be
come a city. He said history was
being written for this day, and that
we people everywhere are helping
to write it. He paid a glowing
tribute to the Catholic church, say
ing at the same time he was not a
member, but that they had furnish
ed 35 per cent of the soldiers of the
present war.
He said that during the past one
hundred and forty odd years of this
country's existance the expenditures
of the nation for all causes had
been $29,000,000,000 and that dur
ing the last congress we had appro
priated $17,000,000,000 but that it
shall be worth even this momentous
price when we shall have conserved
the liberty of the world and made
democracy safe among the nations.
This sum might look extravagent,
said Mr. Jessen, but we are extrav
agent people. "I would advise that
you forego that pleasure car you are
planning to buy next year and in its
stead allow the overworked factories
to make Ited Cross ambulances or
trucks for use 'over there in help
ing to wia the war. Look after the
War Gardens a little more dilligent
ly this year than la6t. Remember,
that in that Flag which hangs before
you remains the last hope of Lib
erty for the world. Do your full
share, and if you are an. American,
you will, and that without a mur-
mer or a complaint."
The address of Mr. Jessen closed

united in singing "America" with a

Golden Wedding anniversary of her

finally reached here on the late Bur

long says that there were five feet
of snow on the level at her home
when she left and still snowing, al
though the weather was not exces
sively cold. On the Moffit road over
which they traveled to rSenver, there
were five dead engines and nine cars
of stock covered up in the drifts on
top of the mountains. These had
to be dug out by hand. At one
place she was compelled to take a
stage for fourteen miles to catch a
train on another road, and there
were twenty-fcur men who walked
the distance, on account of there
not being means of transportation.

Omaha and at South Omaha, Frank
Agnew, a stock salesman in the
yards got in the car with Mr. Jean,
nd they went to Omaha. While
Hearing a crossing where a large
number of school children were pass
ing, a. heavy truck came along, and
seeing the children Mr. Jean, was
careful to keep out of the way, that
none of them got' injured, and while
he seen there were but two things to
do. The one was to take the impact
of the truck which was a heavy one,
driven by a Cudahy driver, and be
wrecked and probably killed or di

children passing. Mr. Jean was not
long in making up his mind, for
setting his teeth he received the
shock which stood the car in which
the two were riding almost on its
end. only to drop down just in time
to be struck by the truck on the
other end which over turned the car
over rolling it, catching Mr. Frank
Agnew, and bruising and rolling him
badly. Mr. Jean was more fortunate
as he did not receive a scratch in the
spill out, coming clear of the wreck.
The car was a complete wreck, as it
was struck by the heavy truck on
both ends, and upset and rolled over.

War Council Named by Wilson in
One Bill and Director of
Munitions in Other.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 17.
Framing of legislation contemplat
ing drastic changes in the govern
ment's Avar machinery, including
creation of an American war coun
cil similar to those of England and
France and director of munitions,
was begun today by the senate mili
tary committee.
Two bills one proposing the war
council of five members, including
the secretaries of war and navy and
three civilians appointed by the
president, and a second to centralize
munitions control in a director of
munitions were prepared today by
a subcommittee consisting of Chair
man Chamberlain and Senators
Hitchcock and Wadsworth.
Chairman Chamberlain announced
the committee virtually had agreed
upon the two bil'.s, in lieu of his
measure for a separate department
of munitions with a new cabinet
member. The attitude of the admin
istration toward them has not been
disclosed. President Wilson and Sec
retary Baker opposed the original
Chamberlain bill.
The plan of the committee for the
war council is to have it under the
president, but wholly independent of
the cabinet.
