Egg Crates in Cellar of Store of John
Hatt & Son Catch Fire from
Soot from Chimney.
From Monday' Dallv.
For the second Sunday in succes
sion, the members of the fire depart
ment were called out yesterday
morning to extinguish the fire that
started in the cellar of the John Hatt
& Son store on Main street. On the
previous Sunday there had been two
alarms sent in for the fire boys from
different parts of the city and in
stead of being a day of rest the Sun
days seem to be the fire department's
The fire at the Hatt store origi
nated, it is thought from the fact
that the stop in the chimney in the
cellar had become worn and fallen
out, allowing particles of burning
soot to fall out onto a pile of egg
crates which had been placed near
the chimney, and that after smould
ering for a time these broke into
Several of the crates were burned
and the blaze reached the timbers
supporting the main floor of the
store but the excellent work of the
department was responsible for put
ting the fire out without any serious
loss to speak of.
The fire demonstrated that the
new fire department is getting to be
more expert in their work and they
went at the task of getting the blaze
under control like a bunch of vet
erans. The use of the new spray
nozzel also aided in getting the
blaze under control as it was played
on the names ana in a very few min
utes the fire was subdued.
The only loss that was sustained
was in several egg crates burned
and a small section of the floor tim
bers being so badly charred that
they will have to be replaced. A
great deal of smoke was caused by
the fire and this filled the main
store room as well as the livrng rooms
of John Hatt. Sr.. on the toD floor
of the building. John Hatt. Jr..
states that as a result of the firei

meats at 20c per pound and are will-!

i GOOD IDEA FROM PLATTS
MOUTH, SAYS TRADE PAPER
The i'crin:iliun.wCji3vertisung elulis
in small towns and cities of this s-1'-tion
has been consistently advocated
by Trade Kxhibit for many years,
and it is therefore gratifying to read
in a recent issue of the 1'Iattsmouth
Journal the following announcement :
of the business men of the cityfi-er
"Thursday noon. March a num
ber of business men of the city met
at the Hotel Wagner f r hmche.ia
and to discuss matter of mutual in
terest in tiie business life ot" the city.
The members of the luucheou party
after discussing the matter thorough
ly decided on the formation of an
Ad Club, the purpose of which is
not. as the title might suggest, pure
ly, advertising, but will take up all
the problems that may confront the
business interests of the city.
' As one of the first steps of a per
manent organization. C. C .Wesott
was named as president and F. P.
Pusch as secretary, and the organiza
tion will at once get busy on lining
up the matter of making greater
trade opportunities for the city and
its business interests.
"The new organization plans to
hold the weekly luncheons when the
members can gather together infor
mally and discuss the questions that
may arise from time to time.
"The Ad Club is purely an organi
zation of mutual helpfulness and will
assist in the work of the Chamber of
Commerce, which covers the mu..h
wider field of community interest
and is covering the general develop
ment and progress of the city, while
the Ad Club is exclusively for the
promotiing of the business interests
of the city."
These men have the right idea of
an Advertisinf Club. Its function
should be to discuss retail advertis
ing, but more than that, to be active
in all sorts of trade promotion plans
for the community. Therein it dif
fers from the Commercial Club. The
Ad Club can have a singleness of pur
pose and a freedom of action not pos
sible for a Chamber of Commerce, in
this one direction of bringing in more
trade to the local business houses.
The example of Plattsmouth should
be followed by ether cities of this
section and if properly conducted
will prove to be one of the best or
ganizations they have, for the whole
community. The Associated Adver
tising Clubs of the World, or the Ad
vertising Clubs of such cities as Oma-'
ha and Lincoln will be glad to help in
the formation of these Ad Clubs.

TAKES UP MANY
UNUSUALLY LONG SESSION HELD
LAST NIGHT DISCUSS FI-
The members of ih city council
last evening indulged in an unusual
ly long session that was filled with
much of interest as dealing with
the problems of the city at this
time and in makqing plan:; for the
f ut uro.
August I'.ach, in a communication
to the city council stated .that in
1U2 he had received from
Sheldon a city warrant for
of SI 00
settlement of an account
and had given Mr. Sheldon
change and he had had the
registered with the
and while in Omaha a
short time ago
had the warrant lost or taken. As
the communication did not make
clear the desires of the owner of
the warrant it was referred back to
Mr. Bach to make more definite his
desires of the city.
In retrard to a road on Winter
steen hill running near the Rothman
property, the council received a let
ter from Frank Ii. Gobelman stating
that his wife was the owner of a lot
in that section of the city and that
they would like to have the city con
sider the securing of the lot for the
roadway there. This matter was
referred to the streets, alleys and
The Western States Construction
company presented their bond to
cover the faithful performance of,
their contract on the work already)
completed on Chicago avenue pav
ing and which is in the sum of
$1,000 and covers the 5 per cent'
thar was held up by the city until j
the time limit had expired on the
vv.rk. On motion of Councilman!
I'iacek the matter was turned over'
to the judiciary committee and the
city attorney to thresh out. I
The presentation of the report of I
the city treasurer as to the condition,
of-tnTronlox nereated the fact
that the city funds are now in better
shape than tr.ev have been for some
time and very few of the funds are
overdrawn, the general fund being
short a small amount due to the
necessity of supplying the premium '
on th refunding bonds from this
source.. The balance in the treas-j
ury was given at $40,000. while the'
registered warrants were $10G.000.;
which is less than for some time !
and these include the special im-.
provfments over the city for which j
there will be return in taxes that
will care for them. Mayor Schneid-'
er stated that the warrants covering
the Chicago avenue paving had all '
been issued in district No. 13, while
the city carried a fund for the Chi-j
cago avenue intersections, which it
v.-as impossible to clean up until a
transfer was made to district No. 13
to take up the warrants there, nd '
as ?f.o0( had been raised in this
fund l.e thought that amount would
cover fully the responsibility of the
city for that portion of the work
onil tlio itv chonlfl rpoco thp lw
j for this purpose. He also
nienuea that mere te a
checking up of all the earlier im
provement wcrk and a definite un
derstanding reached as to the amount
the city has outstanding in all the
districts from No. 3 to No. 10. On
motion of Mason, as amended by
Ptacek. the finance committee and
the mayor were authorized to go
ahead and check up this matter as
well as the Chicago avenue inter
section tax and report at the next
meeting if possible.
Police Judge M. Archer reported
that during the month of February
two arrests had been made and the
fines and costs totaled $21. which
had been deposited with the city
Chief O. Sandin of the fire depart
ment reported that for the month of'
.March there hau been two nres so
far, at the John Marquett residence
and the store of Hatt &; Son.
Councilman Ptacek of the streets,
alleys and bridges committee report
ed that the condition of South 6th
street was very poor and that it'
should be graded up in order to fill I
up the boles and clear the rough)
places and this was placed in the
hands of the street commissioner. I
Councilman McCarthy of the fire
and wafer committee brought up the.
complaint of Mrs. Mary Heinrich.
who had requested the water com
pany to extend the mains across the
street to her residence property to
install the city water, but that the
company had declined to do this for
the sum of $S which was the amount
specified in the franchise to be
charged for this work. Mr. McCar
thy stated that he had interviewed
Mr. Cushman. manager of the water
companv who started that he had in
structions from his company to ex
tend no new work at a loss. On in
quiry as to what they expected to do
under the terms of their franchise.
Mr. Cushman had stated that he
would have to have further time be
fore giving a definite answer to that
The lighting committee through
Chairman Iverson reported that they
had investigated the petition for a
light on Third street and found that
the request was well founded as the
street was very dark from Main
(street south to Granite and the com-
i mitt ee recommended that the light
Ion Richey street be moved one block j
west to Third and installed in front
: of the L. C. Sharp factory where it
could light up both Third and Pearl;
(Streets. This work was ordered!
done at once. Mr. Iverson also stat-.
eil that the light company had in-;
stalled the three new lights ordered;
j by the city and complied with the
instructions and he thought that the
$2.". which had been held up for!
some time from their bill because of J
non-fulfillment of the city's order,
be turned over to them and this
, ws ordered bv the vote of the coun
Councilman Ptacek brought up the'
matter ot the condition of the side-
! walks on Washington avenue which
have bean bulged up in a number of
places by the roots of the trees plant
J ed along the parkway and which
I have prevented a number of the resi
j dents along that street from put
j ting in permanent concrete side
' walks as they might desire to do.
On the suggestion of the second ward
councilman the park commission was
requested to have another row of
trees planted farther from the side-
I walk line and as the new trees grew
I up to remove the old trees that are
standing there at present.
Mayor Schneider brought up a
very important matter of improve
ment in the west part of the city in
which the Nebraska Masonic Home as
wel as the community in general is
interested and this is the improve
ment of road conditions there. The
Nebraska Masonic Home association
is planning some extensive improve
ments on their grounds and desire
to make the western entrance to the
home better than it is at present and
to do this it is necessary to have
some changes made in the roadways
there. The association and Edward
j Fitzgerald, the owner of the property
no the west side of the Home have
j agreed to the disposal of a section
I of the north part of the lots of Mr.
Fitzgerald for the purpose of making
a driveway rrom the Missouri Pa
cific station to the entrance of th
Home on the west and to secure this
portion of land the Chmaber of Com
merce of the city will raise the ne
cessary funds. The city is asked to
vacate the present street running
west of the Home and the association
will Tin vp thp Kfrt f mm thi Home
to connect up with the paving near
the M: p. station and the Traveling
pubiic wiil be able to drive much
handier and with less danger around
that way rather than the present
street which is far from pleasant to
travel over. The cuencil agreed to
go out in a body tonight and look
over the situation.
