Attorney C. A. Rawls. who had
been one of the signers of the call
for the convention, presided over the
meeting and stated the reason for the
gathering as that of a generally ex-

the temporary seere-
tary and the convention was fairly
launched and on the way to do busi
ness. After the temporary organi
zation was made permanent the ques
tion of what the new party was to
be labeled arose and the chairman
called for a iu'!ii- i..,r the political
Jos. 11. McMaken suggested that
the party be designated as the Citi
zens party of Flat tsmouth. to which
an amendment was moved by M. S.
Briirgs to make jt the 'Tnited Citi
zens party of Plattsmouth" and this
was carried by a unanimous vote
and the new party formally
m the running.
TL" discussion of the manner of
picking the candidate for mayor led
to the adoption of a motion to take
an informal ballot for the nomination
of a candidate and this led to tiie
necessity of the chair appointing
f iitrs to handle the vote and T. M.
Patterson. Emmons Ftak. L. L. Mc
Carthy and M. S.-Friggs were desig
nated to act in that capacity ami be
fore the nominations were made the
tellers had a good working out.
The first ballot showed a large vote
with Mayor Schneider receiving 63
and Mr. Rawls 49 and a large scat
tering vote among other of the well
known men of the city. No one re
ceiving a majority, a new ballot was
ordered by the chairman. Mr. Rawls
also stated tluit he would not accept
the nomination and urged that the
delegates cast their votes for some
one else as they were wasting time
in voting for him for the office. Mr.
Schneider also urged his friends to
omit his name from their ballots as
he felt he was entitled to a rest from
the duties of the office which he has
filled for the past three years.
The second ballot was lost as the
old votes were mixed in the con
fusion with the new ones and it was
necessary to throw away the ballot
and order the tellers to take another.
This third one proved fruitless, how
ever, as the friends of Mr. Schneider
and Mr. Rawls continued to vote for
them, while C. A. Johnson began to
develop strength as a candidate.
The fourth ballot gave the nomi
nation to Mr. Johnson of the fourth
ward as the candidate for major, the
final result of this ballot being John
son, 101. Schneider, 46, Guy Morgan,
2". and a small scattering vote for

, unanimous one, incidentally paying
tribute to the successful nominee's
' faithful service as a member of the
: city council during a part of Mr.
; Schneider's administration.
The new nominee of the citizens
; was called for and received quite an
. ova'ion from the convention as he
' pledged his efforts to give the city
the best services he could possibly
, render and asked for the co-opera
tion 01 the community in his work if
he is selected to preside over the
The difficulty of securing a nomi
nation through the means of an in
formal ballot led ( hairman Rawls to
suggest that the nominations be
ward i made from the floor of the conven
ward tion and a formal ballot for nomina
tion then he made and this was
I adopted as the best method of seleet-
ing the other candidates for positions
on the ticket.
For the office of city clerk the
names ot Aubrey Duxbury and li. A.
MeKlwain. the present incumbent,
were presented to the meeting and
the result of the ballot was the nam
ing of Mr. Duxbury as the candidate
by a vote of 120 to 40.
For the office of city treasurer, the
name of Charles Hartford was pre
sented, as were also the names of
II. M. Soennichsen and H. F. Goos.
The result of the ballot was that
Mr. Hartford received S4 votes. Mr.
Soennichsen 41 and Mr. Goos 14.
For members of the board of edu-
cation three names were presented
to the convention. Dr. C. A. Marshall.
Mrs. S. S. Chase and Frank E. Schlat
er and the result of the ballot gave
Marshall 94. Chase 75 and Schlater
74. making the two nominees Dr.
Marshall and Mrs. Chase.
The residents of the various wards
of the city were divided into their
ward caucuses for the purpose of se-
letting nominees for members of the
city council and the result was that
the following were named:
First ward R. F. Patterson.
Second ward James Ptacek.

the candidates. Messrs. Ptacek and
Schulhof are the present councilmen
from their respective wards.
The ticket named is one that
promises much for the cause of good
government in the city in the future
and the candidates are men who will
make an earnest and sincere effort toj
serve the best interests of the people
of the community without a doubt
and they will enter their offices free
of any political strings that might
interfere with the full and free dis
charge of their duties.

him a worthy successor of the pres
ent city treasurer. Mr. H. M. Soen
nichsen. who is retiring after having
served some eight years in that ca
pacity. For the board of education there
is nothing that need be Baid of Dr.
C. A. Marshall as he has served on
the board in a most efficient manner
for a long period of years and is at
the present time president of that
body. Mrs. Chase, the new nominee,
lady well qualified for the office!

the nominee for councilman, is one
of the best qualified men for the of

eight years in the council, and was

MEN PROVE TO BE
ADEPT AT SERVING
Demonstrated Skill Last Evening by
Acting as Hosts to the Ladies
Who Enjoyed the Feed.
From Thursday's Pally.
For the past six weeks the mem
bers of the congregation of the First
Presbyterian church have been en
joying a weekly mission study class
and on each Wednesday evening
there has been served at the church
a supper to the members present.
These pleasant feasts have been pre
pared by the ladies of the church
and have been much appreciated by
With the approach of Easter the
study sessions have drawn to a cloe
and the ladies decided that it would
be no more than fair that the men
of the church show their metal in
the way of preparing a supper and
accordingly hurled a bomb, figura
tively speaking into the ranks of the
men a few weeks ago by announcing
that on the night of Wednesday,
March 23, the men would be called
upon to provide the feast.
A hurried conference of the men
was held and it was decided to ac
cept ihe challenge and a search of
the members revealed the fact that
they possessed a real chef in the per
son of Fred Wagner, proprietor of
the Hotel Wagner and he" was ac
cordingly given the main job of pre
paring the supper and from all re
ports of the gathering last even
ing the men more than covered them
selves with glory as entertainers.
Mr. Wagner had the direct work
of preparing the supper and it was
"some feed" everyone concedes. As
assistants to the chief chef, J. K.
Pollock. C. A. Rawls, G. L. Farley
and J. W. Marquette were on the job
and the boys had the good things to
eat on hand last evening at 6: HO for
the enjoyment of the ladies as well
as themselves. In the dining room.
J. W. Holmes, Rev. McCluskey and
J. W. Tritsch assisted, while Dr. H.
C. Leopold aad D. C. Morgan pre
pared the "Java" for the supper.
The only unfortunate feature of
the affair is the fear entertained by
some of the gentlemen that in re
vealing their skill in the culinary
line and their adaptibility to house
hold work they may secure more of
this passtime in the future.
