This morning the lid was lifted
in ihe city of Plattsmouth as far a,s
tie- regulations covering Ihe closing
hours of the various business houses
and amusement places of the city
were concerned. The committee at
their meeting decided that the condi
tions warranted a restoration of the
city to the normal conditions pre
vailing before the enforced restric
ions as to opening and closing were
adop. d as a safeguarding measure
daring the coal shortage.
The citizens and business men will
-e their own judgment as to the
(on. i rvat ion of tlie fuel supply as it
is not entirely safe to use a greater
amount of fuel than is absolutely
needed for the interess of the city
and the comfort of tlie homes.
The churches have been restricted
to three hours each Sunday morn
ing will go back to their usual hours
cf service and the business houses be
"hie to remain open in the evenings
(hiring the holiday season. Tlie bar
on dancing having been lifted the
voting peoj !e will once more be able
to enjoy themselves at this oldest of
arts, while club rooms that have been
cold and empty during the past two
week will once more take on the
usual aspect of comfort. The late
liner who has been confronted with
a closed restaurant at ft o'clock sharp
can drop in now at any old time and
get a bite to eat and the pool halls
will also remain open until 11 o'clock
instead of ft as at present. The change
will be one that will be greatly ap
preciated by the citizens of the com
munity who have found the evening?
rather chilly and gloomy without any
imusoment to lighten the time during
tire necessary restriction.
The changes made as to the open
ing up of ihe city has not however
relaxed the necessary conservation of
coal and the fuel committee will act
until a sufficient supply for the city
is received by the local dealers and
endeavors to have the available sup
ply divided equally among those who
need it the worst. This is a step
that is made necessary for fear of a
sudden cold spell that might cause
a great deal of suffering if the en
tire supply was exhausted in the city.
It will be at least two weeks before
the coal supply will begin to in
crease. GLARK CASE IS TO
From Monday's Dally.
The case of C. AY. Clark of Union,
who was arrested and held for sev-
' eral days in jail in Omaha on a "vag"
I charge, despite the fact that he had
! money in his possession at the time,
is to be taken up and investigated
according to Chief of Police Eber-
stein of the Omaha police depart
ment. Mr. Clark has commenced ac
tions in the district court of Douglas
county for false arrest and in the
case for the holding without oppor
tunity for securing bonds for his re
lease and this seems to have stirred
up the police officials as to the situ
ation in that city. Saturday two of
the police and detective force were
suspended for their conduct in forc-
Fr.ir-. Tiiepnay's dally.
The Missouri Pacific yesterday af
ternoon restored the traffic on their

Frem Monday's Dal'T.
Saturday afternoon the members
of the Grand Army of the Republic
assembled at their rooms in the
court house with a very pleasing at
tendance of tlie old veterans of the
great struggle of 1SC1-65. and took
up the work of the selecting of the

most important business of the ses
sion. The following were chosen as
officers for the year:
Commander Asbury Jacks.
Senior Yice Commander John
Junior Yice Commander YV. II.
Quartermaster Thomas Wiles.
Officer of the Day T. W. Glenn.
As the delegate to the meeting of

John Palacek. Sr., who recently
returned home from the hospital in
Omaha where he underwent a se
vere surgical operation was down in
the business portion of the city to

eration and is looking wonderfully

Mr. Palacek is enjoying the bracing

his old time vigor and health which
is very pleasing to his family and
SUFFERING WITH BURNED FOOT.
From Tuesday's Dally.
Edward Creamer, who is employed
in the Burlington shops is engaged
in limping around today as result
of having a piece of molten iron fall
on the instep of his right foot and
as a result it is necessary for Ed
to spend a few days on an enforced
vacation while the injured foot heals
. at K,n and
March 1st, the day on which most farmers
make financial arrangements for the year, is
only something like 4 months away.
This year it will be a good thing to keep this
date in mind and to make early arrangements for
settlements, renewals, etc.
In the matter of accommodations, a word
spoken now may save disappointment later on.
All signs seem to point to the fact that an un
usual volume of business will be handled by us

6CGD RIDDANCE TO COUNTRY
General View That Ridding Country
of Such Undesirables is Best
Method cf Handling- Case.
From Wec)Tif;l:i y's I'ally.
The disposition of the two Mexi
cans held in ihe cotimy jail lore by
Sheriff C. I). Quinto:. ha.-, been laketi
up by County Attorney A. G. Cole
with the Fnited States government
officials at Omaha who have charge
of the immigration department and
their opinion is that the best meth
ods of dealing with the men is to
ship them back to tl-.e land of their
nativity. The two men certainly
cannot add anything to the citizen
ship of the Fnited Stales and their
general character and actions should
fit them for some high pesithri in
one of the numerous bands ef out
laws that infest th" southern nation
like a plague. An officer of the im
migration department is expected in
Ihe city in a few days to take steps
to have the men removed to a place
where thev will do no more mi-chit f
to this portion of the country at b-a-t.
The one prisoner who made his
escape from tlie jail on Monday night
is still at large and r.o trace has
been found of his whereabouts al
though by T h ii- time he is probably
miles away from the scenes of his
misadventure. The man made his
escape from the window in the jail
that has become well :f not favorably
known und this in spite of the fact
that the county has just recently
had the window fixed in a manner
that was supposed to make it prof
against an attempt at jail delivery

fidence as the du.-l.y hued rep. re dil
