SPEAKS AT THE
BUSINESS LEADER OF STATE WAS
GUEST OF CHAMBER OF COM
MERCE LAST EVENING
From Friday's Dally.
There was a very large attendance
la.-t evening not only of the. business
men eif the ceimmunitv but the citi
zens in genera! at the Clipper g:tn
; by the Chamber of Commerce at the
i parlors of the First Methodist
j church, which had been arranged for
! the occasion. The ladies eif the
church had the serving oi the dinner
in hand and served a mo.-: plea-iag
feed that was heartily enjoyed by
the banqueters. The' tables were set
with attractive decorations of flow
ers and the bright red candies which
lent a pleasant touch to the scene.
The committee in charge ef the
supper had been most fortunate in
their selection e)f the speaker and
more fortunate in being able tj 'se
cure the attendance ef Mr. Ward
Burgess, who is one of the big and
busy men ef the metropolis arrd they
also wisely limited the speeches ef
the banquet to a few remarks prior
to the speech of the evening.
Former mayor John P. Fattier,
newly elected prseident of the Cham
ber of Commerce presided over the
gathering: and in his opening re
marks made a plea l'er a united ac
tion em the part of the residents en
the comniunitv for t lie betterment of
the city the throwing aside ot pet
ty differences between the residents
and the concerteei movement to se
cure for the community the best pos
sible prosperity and to stand first,
last and all the time for the city and
its best interests. Mr. Sat tier in
troduoetl Mayor H. A. Schneider, who
in a few minutes of iiis rapid f.re ad
elress called attention to seune very
pertinent facts concerning the city
and its government and the condi
tions to which the pe-ople of the com
munity should turn their attention,
as regards the management of the
city government. Too little atten
tion is paid by the average citizen to
the running of the affairs of the city
and what little attention is given by
the citizens is not at the proper
time- that of the naming and se
lecting of the officials of the city
who must expend the public funds
and secure the best that they can for
the city in return. The cest of thr
operation of the city government
each year is 550.000 and ef this
amount the peeiple show little real
interest in sel cting the best pees
sible public officials and the bu.-iness
and professional men of the cemmun
ity fail to come forward to se-e that
they do their part in helping carry
en the city government. The mayor
in touching em the conduct of affairs
of the city in the past took up the
matter of the refunding bonds that
the city had been forced to is-ue la
December and which covered, noi th
indebteelness of recent years but
bonds isstied away back thirty, forty
anel fifty years a?e. some of the
bonds being those that were issued to
bring the Burlington railroad to
Nebraska while others were those
issued for the benefit of the Missouri
Pacific. Had the proper interest
been taken some means of paying
these bonds would have been mn-1e
at the time of their issuance. Mr.
Schneider commended the policy
which had been started under the
administration of Mr. Sattler of cre
ating a sinking fund that would care
for the bonel issues and which had
paid off some 52a. 000 worth of the
old refunding bonds of the issue ef
1918 and in the future the Uoncjs
would be retired when they matur
eel as the city council had arranged
that 52.000 of the bonds were te he
retired each year. The cemstan: re
petition ef effort in work on the- dirt
reads over the hills of the city led
Mr. Schneieler to urge a more exten
sive plan of permanent street work
and paving instead of each year be
ing compelled to expend thousands of
dollars on we.rk that the first rain
storm would wipe out of existence.
The second speaker of the evening
was E. H. Wescent. the chairman of
the arrangements committee to whom
was given the honor of introducing
the speaker of the evening. Mr. Bur
gess, and to whom he paid a most
glowing tribute te the distinguished
visitor of the evening and his weirk
for the nation and state in the late
war and the business world of Ne
braska in which he is a commanding
Mr. Burgess in his opening remarks
expressed his feeling of pleasure at
being present with the Plattsmouth
Chamber of Commerce, but denied
being- a public speaker, which fact
was later belied in the excellent
straightforward and matter of fact
talk given on the general business
condition of the country and some of
the problems of the present day.
The speaker pointed out the con
ditions ot tne early days ot world war 1
when the world was suddenly thrown
from the peaceful pursuits to those of
bloodshed and destruction and the
enormous amount of the product of
America that the warring nations
had demanded from the factories and
mills of the United States and which
was later followed by the entrance
of the United States into the war.
From that time forward the greatest
effort of the nation and its people
had been directed to the winning of
