ACTION FILED IN THE DISTRICT
COURT BY CITY REOPENS
CASE ON RIVER LAND.
From Friday's Dany.
The controversy extending back
over a period of : several years and
covering the right and title to the
lands formed by the accresion of the
Missouri river for the past thirty
years, was reopened yesterday when
the City of Plattstnouth fited an ac
tion in the district court asking that

ants are August Bach, Jr., John
Cory, Frank H. Johnson. Eli Man
speaker, Adolph Geise, Grover El
ledge, and a number of others, who
have in the last few years platted
the land on the river bottom and en
gaged in the cultivation of the land.

is asserted that the town site was
platted in 1858 and in April. 1859,

In February, 1866, it Is asserted
by the plaintiff the charter of the
City of Plattsmouth was amended so
as to set the city limits at the cen

this was so declared by an ordinance

council. In the year. 1 SS9 - the Mis

Church at Cedar Creek Where
Mr. Duff Made His Home.
From Friday' Dally.
Yesterday afternoon at the Cedar
Creek church was held the funeral
services of Dr. John B. Duff, pioneer
physician of Cass county and who
has for the past forty years been
one of the well known figures of
i that section of the county. Rev. H.
G. McClusky of the Presbyterian

loved hymns were given by the quar
tet consisting of G. L. Farley, Miss
Baird, Miss Fae Chase and Rev. Mc
Clusky. At the conclusion of the ser

the deceased so well and held him in
such deep respect and affection.

of age and a veteran of the civil war
and later had graduated from the
University of Michigan medical col
lege and also at the Keokuk, (Iowa)
medical college. He came west short
ly after his completion of his school
work and forty years ago settled in
Cedar Creek where he has since re
sided. Mr. Duff was twice married,
the first wife dying shortly after he
came to Cedar Creek, and he then
married Miss Mary Walradt and to
this union four children were born,
the two sons preceding the father in
death, and the two daughters, Mrs.
Harry O'Brien and Miss Grace Duff,
with the mother remain to share the
grief of the passing of this pioneer
