WHICH GJVE HIM PROTEC
TION AND LIVING.
The local board of this, as well s
all places, have received bulletin
: ( nihiT 219. which deals with law
yers. The cause for the sending out
of the bul.etin. was because cf the
jvn.lcring cf a decision on a case
which was taken from Montana to
the office of Provost Marshal Gener
al Crowder, and which is asked to
sent to all the local boards and
by them given widest publication.
The Selective Service Law was
tui.cttd ai; an emergency measure.
It exact.- from certain citizens their
entire ti'i!' and possibly the ir !ives.
In administering that law much was
expected of the members o! the
profession-.;, particularly the lawyers.
1. should be the pride of ;'evcry
lawyer that no registrant within bis
district is without competent advice
and assistance in preparing a'l the
ti;!!' -. and that such registrant is
rewind to submit in the proems or!c;1 with r lia,il wi B forward

has met wiUi the severe censrre of
this office. Such practices are deem
ed i::iproper, unethical and unpat
riotic. It is a form of profiteering
bem-ath J'ne dignify rf the legal pro
fesiou, which profession had "ln:jt
unanitiH.usly .strongly condemned t.
The pleading by attoMieys ol
determent claims of registrants is
cciuidered culpable and inconsistent
with the spirit of the selective law.
Sur.h practice- create; ihe inrpres
t io: that the application of the said
law might not for parallel cases be
uniform. The classifiction arrived

! in case he was not a member of tne
'advisory ooard, l's case short d be
taken to the State Bar Association,
and we think he is not getting more
than justice when he shall have been
given what the following case which
came before the Missouri State Bar
Association, which suspended the
member from the right to practice
law for fifteen months, for even ex
acting fees for the administration of
an cath, required in the execution
cf their questionnaires.
The stand of this oiiice to.vaids
the precice in question has, as heie
inbefore, stated, been generally sup

state associations, and is as confident
that all Bar Associations have equally-

THE EEFERRED MEETING EN
TERED INTO WITH EN- .
SAY SEWER GOSTRUCTION BAD
Apoint Committee to Look After its
Repairs and Also the .
The first thing to engage the at
tention of the council last evening
! was a petition of Mrs. B. C. Kerr
asking that a cement walk be built
I along her property by the city and
I the amount assessed to her property.
J The work was ordered done, as well
as the necessary grading.
I Tnen iollowed a communication
'from the Western Machine and
Foundry Co., which was a protest
against the raise in gas rates. The
communication cited that the rate
now was above other cities of this
class and was cxhorbitant. When
that was placed cn file a recommen
dation from the library board came,
asking the reappointment of Messrs.
Wcscott. Parmele and DeWolf as
members of the boartl whose terms
of office are just now expiring. The
request was granted and the nomina
Chicago Avenue Paving Matter.
A report from the surveyors whom
the city has been employing for
some time on the public works, said
that the paving has been completed
and was done in a first-class man
ner and in detail went into the mat
ter of telling what had been done.
They recommended the payment of
the amount which the contractors
claimed was still tlue and unpaid.
The matter elicited much discussion,
in which a majortiy of the council
agreed that the work was not satis
factory, was not completed, and that
many places showed settling during
the rains of the spring, and that the
people of whom the construction
company were claiming that they
were not getting pay for material
used, and it was the sense of the
mayor that the city should see that
all bills were paid before making
final settlement with the contrac
tors. The matter of failure in back
filling by the curb was also cited by
Counci linen Weber.
Notwithstanding the fact of the
faulty work, and it being incom
plete and having kept the avenue
closed for six months longer than
was stipulated in the contract, the
engineer.; advised paying the amount
of the bill
By a motion of Larson and having
a scond by Lu:;chinshy, the matter
was placed in the hands of the
streets, alleys and bridges com mitt
tee. Garage Sites Asked For.
A petition was then read and
contract, without consideration, esk
ing for the privileges of building a
garage near the Burlington shops'
office which was granted. The places
being for a car for William Baird.
Later in the evening a request for a
site on Pearl street was asked for
L. B. Egenberger under same cir
cumstance, which was granted, and
will be consumated upon a written
agreement being drawn.
Pourth cf July Dance.
The ladies of the Red Cross asked
for permission to have a portion of
Vine street north of the post office J
for the use of a dance on July
Fourth. The object being laudable,
the permission was reiadily granted
on notion of Larson supported by
Lushinsky. Following this was, the

The matter of levying a tax for the
purpose of supporting the band was
reported upon and it was ths sense
of the committee that tlie taxes at
this time are as high as Ilicy should
he1 and thought it not right to placj
more mrdeus and so reported. The
report was placed on file.
Chicago Avenue Sewer Problem.
The matter of the sewer on Chica
go. avenue was brought up, and all
had a chance to have a portion of the
JdiECtissior.. which thall be the be
ginning of the settlement of the 'mat
ter. A concrete b.i.e was one of the
things which it waj claimed was
necesary to make the job a good one
and r.o it war claimed by a number
of il.e councitmon, that both Ban
ning, the maker of the sewer pipe.
and McMaken, the one who installed
it, has told tlie committee of the old
council, who' would not listen to the
matter. It was claimed that Bruce
& Sandeven, the engineers which the
city has employed, said it was not
necessary. This is the second in
stance in the evening where this
firm had steered the people and the
During the discussion it developed
that not a sufficient number of inter-locking
lugs were placed on the
separate piece, and that the sewer
had not been built straight. The
concensus cf opinion was that all
were rome at fault.
The matter was placed in hands
of tlie street?, alleys and bridges
comniittco and mayor to confer with
the contractor and place the sewer
in proper condition and adjust the
cotts there'of. The motion by Bus
chinsky and supported by Beeson.
and Clara Streets.
It was reported that the Burling
ton railway was occupying Clara
street, and that it was placed in con
dition so that it could not be used.
This elicited much discussion which
brought out the fact 'that Clara
street had been vacated some time
since. It was shown that the con
nections through Cass street was
such as nqt to be safe for travel.
The matter was passed to the streets,
alleys and bridges committee for in
vestigation and immediate action.
Water Rates Matter Up.
Then came the reading of an ex
tended account of the cost of opera
tion, the amount of capital invest
ed, the condition of the water plant,
and many oiher things; and com
pared the years of 1917 and 1918, to
show that rates, should be higher.
Harris, who has the matter in hand
as chairman, said that he had not
received the matter in time to make
report and was given more time, lie
expected to report at the nxet regu
Report Lightning Committee.
Chairman Luchinskjy of the light
ing committee reported that he had
received a proposition to have the
council allow an increase of 20 per
cent in the rates, pending an inves
tigation, as to what was just, but
that in no case should the minimum
be less than one dollar per month
whether the amount of gas used
had been that much or not. That J.
L. Kennedy, the fuel administrator
fjr Nebraska .should employ a com
petent and elisinterested engineer to
ascertain what should be a just rate,
and should that rate be less than the
20 per cent advance asked, then the
amout of his expenses should be tak
en from the 20 per cent, and the
remainder or that portion which
was decided was too high paid back
to the consumer.
This communication was elated
June 12. The committee reported
upon this that they had not suffi
cient knowledge of the matter to
act, and asked that some one be se
cured in line with the suggestion of
the lighting- company, but that the
lighting company bear the expense
they were asking for the increase
and the burden of proof was on them
to establish the fact that they were
entitled to it: The report was
adopted after much discussion. At
torney W. A. Robertson addressed
the council in behalf of the lighting
company, saying that they only
wanted what was Just and urged
higher rates, while the councilmen
generally retorted that the rates
were excessive" at this time. Weber
especially, cited instances of higher
rates than in town of like size of
Plattsmouth. Mr. Robertson said
the company must have redress or
shut the plant down.
Will Clean Up the Chamber.
The matter of cleaning up the
council chamber which "Is far from
being in a sanitary condition, was
brought up and every man with one
accord shouted for its renovation, so
it was ordered.
The clerk was ordered to notify
George McDaniels, who has gone to
the navy at the Great Lakes naval
training station, that he must move
his blacksmith shop off the street.
The matter of street work was
touched and the putting of a flag
staff at the intersection cf Sixth and
'tain streets was also considered, but
was passed up when Carl Kunsman
told of a man running over the bar
rel at Sixth and Vine streets with a
motorcycle. Harris touched upon
the subject of cutting the weeds,
which was ordered, and the council
