became necessary to defend himself.
and that the alleged assault occurred
on the public highway near the
The story of the complaining wit
ness, Leslie Everett and his father,
George Everett, was to the effect
that they had defended themselves
in an effort to keep the defendants
from trespassing on their property

menced the assault.
One of the witnesses for the de
fense, named Peitz. declared thlt the
elder Mr. Everett had struck Lehman
over the head with a stick of wood
which broke from the force of the
blow. "Had it been green wood."

have been killed." This witness also
stated that young Everett was not
badly hurt, although he had been
knocked cold by Lehman, and had
later cranked up the car and drove
away with his father from the scene

From Monday. Dally .
clever heavyweight' boxer, who has
been under the displeasure of the
state boxing commission since the
first of the year, will soon be back
in the roped arena to meet all com
ers in his class, as H. H. Antles has
lifted the ban to be effective on June
1st, and given Andy permission to
go ahead with any arrangements
for matches after that date.
This will be pleasing news to the
fight fans in this city and county
who have regretted very much the
fact that Andy has been deprived of
the opportunity of taking part in
the winter fight bills as the result
of the mill with George Lamson on
December 17th, which earned a sus
pension for Schmader. Having kept
in good trim however, Andy will
soon be in readiness to take on any
dates for matches that may be made.
The young heavyweight also has
had some rather tough luck in the
fact that his training quarters,
which he has been maintaining at
the Homain Maier garage at Louis
ville, were devastated by fire Thurs
day and as a result allthe equipment
that Andy has been using was con
sumed in the fire. The blaze start
ed in the portion of the building
used as training quarters and before
it could be checked all of the prop
erty in that part of the building
was burned up. The blaze was 'beak
ed however before getting into the
ganfge proper and the only sufferers
will be Andy and the owner of the

HAS LONG SES

EVERYTHING FROM PAVING TO
ELECTION BOARDS IS BROT
UP AT MEETING.
From Tuesday's Daily.
The city council last evening held
one of their longest sessions in a
long time and the range of subjects
brought up run from paving to bonds,
violations of health rules and ' the
appointment of the judges and clerks
of election. All of the councilmen
were present when Mayor C. A. John
son stepped on the gas at 7:30 and
the session was opened up.
A communication from . J.

a rrlvate sewer across EiEhth street
between Elm and Locust was received
and permission granted provided the
bond and blue prints required were

seconded by Councilman Ptacek. the
American Legion was given permis
sion to use the city lots on Washing
ton avenue and also to have the oc
cupation tax suspended in view of
their doing work on the city prop
erty. The residents on Pearl street rep
resented by V. T. Am, H. Wain
troub and H. M. Young, presented a
statement to the council protesting
against a cesspool on the property of
John Albert and this was referred to
the board of health, "but will be unnecessary-
a3 Mr. Albert has filed re
quest to be allowed to make sewer
connections at his property.
The Elks band, through W. K.
Krecklow, chairman, asked that the
city take some action relative to the
holding of band concerts during the
coming summer months and on. mo
tion this was referred to the finance
committee for their lurther action.
E. O. Vroman presented a state
ment to the council that he had been
compelled to make a payment of 1 5
for meter Bervlee to the Nebraska
Gas & Electric . company, which he
did not beli eve to ba a Just and Tlght
charge. Councilman Schulhof stated
that this had been the practice of the
light company for the past few years
and to which Councilman Bestor
stated that the ordinance did not
give them this right and that as far
as the ordinance went If the light
rnmnanv nlaced in a meter it was
jon their own responsibility and that
the ordinance did not give them the
power t6 make the charge. This view
was also shared by Councilman
Ptacek and the matter was ultimate
ly placed in the hands of the lightins
committee to look into.
The Judiciary committee through
Knorr then reported on
the often discussed city park on
Washington avenue and recommend
ed that Lots 7, 8 and 9 in Block 8 be
taken for park purposes and the or

great deal of diaougeion from tha '
councilmen as to the relative merits
of the twenty year plan as proposed
for the paving bonds and the 'option
al plan that would allow the city to
retire as many bonds as they could
during the life of the bonds. There
were a number of bids offered for the
twenty year bonds and also the op
tional plan was brought up by Mayor
Johnson, under which the city would
have the right to call the bonds as
fast as the funds accumulated instead
of waiting until the expiration of
the twenty year period to clean up
Former Mayer Schneider, whose
bank, the Plattsmouth state Dank,
was willing to accept the optional
bonds, pointed out the advantages
that this form would be to the city,
as saving the need of currying funds
through a period of years and in the
case of persons beinz able to pay
their taxes, in full, the bonds could
be retired very rapidlr.
This view was also shared by the
majority of the council as the ordi
nance was defeated by the vote of
seven to three. Uestor, Knorr and
Schulhof voting for the ordinance.
The optional bond plan with the
bonds bearing seven par cent, due in
April and October of each year was
then read and passed 1y the unani
mouse vote of the council. The inter
section bonds will, however, run the
full ten years as thero will be only
SI, 000 raised each year in the levy
for the retirement of these.
John P. Sattler, former city execu
tive and chairman of t!ie park board,
was in attendance at the meeting
and securing the floor explained
that the park board desired the con
sent of the council to do what they
could to make the city lots on Wash
ington avenue suitable for a tourist
camp ana also ior para purposes.
Mr. Sattler was not fully convinced
that the board should go ahead and
make a number of small improve
ments they have in mind, until the
council gave them authority, and he
also informed the council that the
board had sent the Lincoln Tele
phone and Telegraph company a bill
for $78 for two years rental on the
lots and also asked that the surplus
poles be removed at once. Mayor
Johnson stated that the park board
was fully able to tell what was need
ed and to go ahead with what they
felt was necessary and this view was
shared by the members of the coun
cil as welL --
Citv Attorney Ita wis 'stated that. as
soon as the condemnation proceed
ings on the Kroehler lots ware com
pleted, he would prepare a resolution
designating the park by official title.
The paving proposition was brot
into the limelight when Councilman
Ptacek moved that the mayor and
clerk be authorized to advertise for
bids for the repaving of ilain street.
so that when it was desired, the work
could be hurried. Mr. Ptacek favor
ed two plans, one for a convex and
one for a concave form, of street. A
great deal of argument ensued as to
whether or not the cit3' should ask
for bids on the paving or wait un
til the sewer question was settled.

and all set for the paving. Engineer !

From V."nday's really.
The birda on their northward

time and of the mating season, Inst

of Plattsmouth from their favorite
: resting place around the gratonola
lit Morgan's Sweet Shop, and sent
them forth to call upon two of t lie
young ladies of our m-arby village
Uut tins is not the worst or the
alYair, or the part that will be long
est remembered by the Plattsmouth
swains. The boys made the trip in
fine shape to the home of their
I friends and alighting from the trusty
Ford made their way into the home
where they were welcomed and pass
ed the time in enjoyment and pleas
ure until the evening hour began to
draw late and the time for return
ing to the greatest little city in Ne
braska was at hand..
The young men hastened out to
their car and found that there was
only part of it left. The light bulbs
had been taken out. all of the wir
ing disconnected and the air let out
af all four tires and one of the tires
slit so that it was rendered useless.
The affair drove all of the beautiful
sentiment from the hearts of the two
auto Ilomeos and they cursed long
and vigorously but to little avail and
it was only by the energetic work of
the experts at one of the Union gar
ages that the car was made service
able and the boys returned home.
Seriously speaking, the affair may
prove troublefome to the parties
who pulled off this stunt as the mat
ter will probably be given an airing
by the authorities.

TOURIST PARK IN
THIS CITY PRAC
Park Board and City Council
Mood to Do All Possible for
From Tuesday's Dally.
The disposition of the city coun
cil and the city park board to take
hold of the proposition of the Wash
ington avenue park, and see that it
is put through to a successful con
clusion, is most pjcasing to residents
of the city who have been urging a
municipal camping grounds for the
auto tourists as well as a recreation
spot for the young and old in the
northwest section of the city. The
city park on Granite street has In
the past been the gathering place
for parties of picnickers and young
sters residing in that part of the
eity and there is no reason why the
north side of the city should not
have the same privilege and right
for a place of this kind. The two
parks will give the city two -very
nice recreation spots and both will
be under the' stijperVTsien of theTrk
board as soon as the necessary legis
lation is enacted by the council.
There will be only a few of the
needed .improvements made this year
at the new park, but it is hoped to
have it in shape so that there will
be a suitable place for auto tourists
to stop over night, with water and
cocking facilities installed.
The park will have the advantage
of the work that the American Le
gion will put out in order to get the
grounds ready for the street carnival
which will be here the first week in
May and the park improved to that
extent will help not a little in get

MATION FILED AGAINST
HDI THIS MORNING.
From Tuesday' Dally.
This morning in the county court
information was filed by A. ti. Cole,
j county attorney of Cass county.
1 charging Charles C. Parmele, former
1 president of the Dank of Cass Coun
ty, with violation of the state bank
j ing laws while the defendant was an
I officer of the above named bank.
The complaint embraces three
counts covering different Instances
of what the state contends consti
tuted violation of the law covering
the operation of banks and the bor
rowing of funds by offictrs.
It is claimed that on October 2!.
1919, the defendant while president
of the Bank of Cass County, did.
while a member of the firm of "Will
Jean and Company," borrow the sum
of 11,000 from the Bank of Cass
County in the name of the company.
The second count is of the same
nature, giving the sum of $ 9.93. S3
as the amount borrowed on February
10. 1920. and the third count is for
the similar offense on the date of
April 19, 1920. when the sum of 3.
000 was borrowed from the Bank of
This ca.se is the outgrowth of the
liquidation of the Bank of Ca.-
County, following the decision of the
board of directors of the bank on
December 13. 1921, to place the bank
and its assets and liabilities in the
hands of the state banking board.
At that time Fred E. Bodie of Lin
coln was named as the receiver of
the defunct bank, and has since been
in charge of the cleaning up of the

here to discus the matter with Coun

sistant attorney general, as well as
Mr. Bodie, being here to look over
the situation and to prepare for the
filing of the complaint.
This matter Is one that will !

is in any way familiar with the part
that Mr. C. C. Parmele has played !n

in the development of the city thru
his aid to the business men as well
as the farmers .of the community
and it is in 'the Ught of his splen

believe that these charges preferred
can stand, as they seem cf a nature
that can be explained away when the
matter li brought to its hearing.

interested in the city and Its wel
