NORTH AND SOUTH
SIDES TO PLAY BALL
One Week From Today the Mer
chants and Clerks on Main Street
Will- Clash on Ball Field "
It is being planned to have the
long standing controversy between
the business men of the north side
of Main street and those on the
south side settled as to who are the
base ball champions and it is planned
to have the big event occur on Wed
nesday evening. June 15th at the
Eagles park at 6:15.
It has been a number of years
since the representatives of the busi
ness interests of the city were able
to meet on the base ball diamond
and they arc now ready for the bat
tle once more and it promises to be
a real struggle. In the last meet
ing the North side were able to
win the contest as they were for
tunate in having the old veterans
of the game, H. A. Schneider and
II. F. Goos on their side, but the
si. u til side has now developed some
fast players and they are expecting
to start something with their old
time rivals. It is rumored that
Johnnie Hatt, Henry Soennichsen. K.
J. Weyrich and other of the south
siders have been planning the meet
ing for a long time and are now in
the pink of condif'on for the big
affray, but we will let the develop
ments speak for themselves.
BE VERY BEAUTIFUL
New Property Added to Masonic
Home Grounds Makes It One of
the Beauty Spots of City.
The grading of the lots recently
secured by the Masonic Home associa
tion from Edward Fitzgerald, as well
as the changing of the street through
the purchase by the residents of
Plattsmouth of sufficient ground to
allow the street" from the Missouri
Pacific station east past the Masonic
Home to be widened and made into
a very fine driveway, has worked a
wonderful change in the appearance
of that portion of the city and already
gives an idea of the beauty that is to
be when the lawn is fully developed
and the landscape gardening that is
being planned is carried out by ten
Masonic Home board.
The Home association now controls
the entire block from Thirteenth
street west to the Missouri Pacific
station and it will be made into one
of the most delightful spots in the
city within the next few weeks.
The improvements on the exterior
of the west portion of the Home
building has added much to the gen
eral appearance of the structure and
this is now being made the main en
trance to the building. The board of
control has bad a large portice erect
ed on the west front of the building
that has added greatly to the finish
ing of the appearance of the Home
and with the other changes made
completes very nicely the plans of
beautifying the west facade of the

Bouth Sixth Street
Yesterday morning Carl Ofe, the
youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Ofe of this city, was operated on at
the Fenger hospital in Omaha for
appendicitis and th? operation proved
very successful. Carl was in the
best of shape for the ordeal and it
was thought advisable to have the
operation performed at this time
rather than wait and it proved very
pleasing in its result as the patient
rallied nicely from the effects of the
operation and it is thought will soon
be on the highway to recovery.

Only two cases of diphtheria have
developed within the last two days,
according to reports of the lie." 1th
service which has thoroughly organ
ized in every district in the city and
is making a house to house canvas;
to report sickness and guard against
insanitation. This is attributed to
the fact that the floods virtually
wiped out the poorer residence dis
trict in the bottoms in which i.i per
cent of all contagious and inflection
diseases originated prior to the flood.
Additional troops tonight are on
the way from IJoulder and vicinity.
The military order compelling all
able bodied men to work has brought
out an army of laborers.
Only a few arrests have been
made for looting. Occasional shots
have been tired, but the only fatality
from this source, occurring lui
night, was shot from the gun cf any
member of the nigM patrol, accord
ing to an investigation.

death of K. K. Withers, prominent
business man. was examined.

floods in the history of the we!.
The parents of Mr. and Mrs. Halya
aie living in that city and when, the
word was received here of the dis
aster in the Colorado city it caused
a great deal of worry to the Halya

VERY ATTRACTIVE SIGNS
One of the additions to the attrac
tiveness of Main street is the series
of illuminated lodge announcements
that have been placed in the front
of the Masonic temple. Heretofore
it has been the custom to have a
slide placed in the small electric sign
each time one of the Masonic (tranch
es was to meet. The new signs are
objects cf much beauty and each one
of the Masonic branches. Masons,
Chapter, Comma ndery and Kastern
Star have their own sign which is
illuminated on the meeting nights.
The signs are all hand painted and
are the work of J. V. D. Patch, the
gifted artist of the west who is mak

and each of them are works of art
in every sense of the term.

FURTHER WAGE CUT
ASKED BY PACKERS
Sixty Thousand Would Be Affected
By Eeductions Requested
Chicago, 111., June 7. A further
wage reduction of 5 cents an hour
for all packing house employes paid
on an hourly basis and proportional
cuts for piece workers, were asked
today by the Chicago packers in a
petition filed with Federal Judge
Samuel Alschuler, federal arbiter.
The reductions, if granted, would
affect approximately CO. 000 workers
in all parts of the country. The pe
tition asked that a full hearing be
held before June 19 and requested
that the reductions he made retro
active to that date.
Relief from the penalties imposed
on the packers in the form of work
ing hour restrictions also was asked.
With their eight-hour day in force, it
was explained the packers were guar
anteeing forty hours of work per
week and paying overtime after eight
hours. It was suggested that this
be changed to a guarantee of forty
eight hours work and the agreement
obliging them to pay overtime after
eight hours be abolished. Thus over
time would only be paid after forty
eight hours' work a week.
The minimum rate now paid is 4 5
cents per hour to which it was cut
from 53 cents in March following the
abrogation by the packers In Febru
ary of a war-time agreement under
which Judge Alschuler was the medi
ator. At that time the packers, after
conferences with President Harding
and Secretary Davis agreed to con
tinue the arbitration agreement until
September 1 and the employes
agreed to accept wage reductions
averaging about 15 per cent.
The packers declare that despite
the last wage cut and reduction of
their forces they have continued to
operate at a loss and that they can
not continue to exist under present
conditions. They declared that while
labor continued to receive from two
to two and one-half times as much
pay as it did before the war, farm
ers and live stock growers are get
ting less for their product and are
being forced to operate on a basis
ruinous to the producer.
