NEW FIRE TRUCK
IS NOW ON HAND
Apparatus Erought Down from Om
aha Yesterday by Chairman Mc
Carthy and Alvin Jones.
The long expected lire truck which
is to place the lire fighting equip
ment of the city on a modern basis,
arrived yesterday afternoon from
Omaha, being brought to this city by
Chairman L. L. McCarthy of the fire
and water committee of tK"o" council
and Alvin Jones, who did the driv
ing of the machine.
The truck was secured of the An

chasis is built by the Douglass
company and is one that is especially
designed for the work on the long
and steep hills of tha city while the
truck has been prepared wiih two
chemical tanks, hose, ladders and
other necessary equipment by the
It is a fine looking pic;o of equip
ment and will fill a long felt want in
this .city, where the old fashioned
hose carts that were hauled to fires
by hand have long been in use, and
the new fire fighting equipment will
enable the fire department to reach
a fire quickly and do eiTective-work
during the early stages of the blazC
r.ml before a great deal of damage
has been done.
The department has been handi
capped in the last few months by the
fact that members of the department
working in the shops have found it
difficult to get away from their
work without a great sacrifice of
their wages and with the fire truck
and equipment it will be possible for
a few men to handle ' the ordinary
class of fires that occur in this city.
The fire truck will be kept at the
Rauer garage, owing to the fact that
the fire house has no heating facili
ties and the equipment will be under
the supervision of Alvin Jones, who
is an expert in the care of motor
vehicles, and who will also handle
the truck at all daytime fires, while
at night a driver will be supplied by

HAS BEEN FAITH
FUL TO DUTIES
Judge Archer Rounding Out Service
of 30 Years as Police Magistrate
of the City of Plattsmouth
As long as the memory of the
present generation covers there has
been but cne man presiding over
the police court of this city and that
hs3 been the present occupant of the
office. Judge M. Archer, who is round
ing out thirty years of service and
fcas just been elected by a practi
cally unanimous vote for a:i addi
tional term in the office. Judge
Archer has also served 32 years as
justice cf the peace.
In the by gone days the office cf
police judge was a plum much
pnuht after in the city political circle-,
but Judge Archer, who is a
rock ribbed democrat, has always
turned i;p a winner at the election
with but one exception when the of
fice v.-;s secured by William Weber,
who held it for one term, but the
pecple decided that the brand of jus
tice handed out by the venerable
judge wes the real article and he
was elected again and has held of
fice continuously since that time.
During his service to the city as
presiding officer of the police court
Judge Archer has given the fullest
measure of service and the office ha-s
been open every day for the transac
tion of the business of the court.
I p. the past few years many of the
eld familiar figures who were often
on hand to greet his honor with
"good morning judge" have disap
peared from the scene of activity and
the business has been cut down to a
great extent by the taboo on the wild
women a nd prohibition, but still
Judge Archer has been able to secure
a neat sum for the city treasury each
Jur'.tre Archer will have passed his
eighty-fourth milestone on December
3rd and is still alert and capable of
handling the affairs of the office to
which he has brought such splendid
service in J.he past. Incidently
while other city officials have re
ceived salary boosts, the venerable
Judge is still receiving the same sal
ary, $30 a month, that he has for the
past fifteen years and this seems a
very unjust amount for the splendid
service that our old friend has given
the city of Plattsmouth.

Sacrament of Confirmation.
At the St. Patrick's Catholic

session of the church at High Mass,
conferred the Sacrament of Confirma

In his discourse at the confirmation.
Father O'Riley spoke in referance to
the confirmation, explaining the in
tentions and the value of such a sac
rament and grew eloquent in the ela
boration of his subject. He was very
-earnestly listented to by the large
number of the parishoners who were
privileged to listen to the discourse.
Following the services there was a
banquet given by the ladies of the
parish end who also papered the
church building for the occasion by a
very elaborate decoration which
trasformed the room into a bower of
beauty. The banquet was served in
the town hall and a very interesting
and pleasing program had been pro
vided for the occasion which con
sisted of music, both instrumental
songs, being solos, duets and choruses
and addresses. The Rev. Father Hig
