stated that be had fcone to Kansas City

the fact of his departure or his des

several people when and where he was
going. He stated that for several
years past his domestic relation were
anything but pleaaant, which was not
caused entirely by fault on his part,
and that the articles which appeared
in the Omaha papers were authorized
by his wife. He admits having: had
trouble at Fremont several years ago,
and charges his wife with being the
cause. Referring to the latest phase

remain in business in this city and

A WELCOME INDUSTRY
Plattsmouth Bushes To the Fore
With a Big Cigar Factory.
CITY "WATEB, IS ABUNDANCE.
Superintendent of the Water Company
Reports That. U Dangei or a Water
Famine Baa raaaed That
Some four weeks ago tbe mention
was exclusively made in these columns
that Julius Pepperberg, the local cigar
manufacturer, was preparing for a trip
to New York City, with a view of look
ins through the big factories of tbe
east for tbe purpose of acquainting
himself with the methods used in tbe
operation of those concerns. Mr. Pep
perberg 's plan was to increase tbe
working force and output of his local
factory, and he wisely concluded that
a personal visit to some of the big
eastern factories would be of material
advantage, should he conclude to make
such a change. lie departed at the
appointed time, and now comes the
cheering news from him at New York
City that be will make the con
lea plated change. The following cir
cular which Mr. Pepperberg is issuing
from New York City to the trade in
ibis section will testify to the truth ol
the above assumption:"

Yours for high-grade "Buds."
Mr. Pepperberg's factory is alreadv
the largest in the entire state, and
when It is known that he proposes to
more than treble his present working
force, it thus becomes apparent that
it gives Plattsmouth an institution
which is highly desirable and which
will add materially to the trade of the
town. Under the new arrangement
the Pepperberg cigars will be ex
clusively handled by one of the largest
jobbing bouses in the Missouri valley
and it is the determination of tbe
wholesalers to continually pushPepper
bere's cigars to tbe fore.
The Journal sincerely trusts that
Mr. Pepperberg's enterprise may meet
with the success it so justly merits.
Plenty of City Water.
Sup't Coursey of the water company
informs The Journal that the supply
of water at the pump house since
Tuesday evening has been subjected
to a material increase, and that there
now exists no possibility of the water
running so low that the company will
be unable to furnish an abundance
for all the requirements. The
standpipe is, as of yore, kept con
tinually full. Mr. Coursey and several
of the eity officials were out on Thurs
day testing tbe hydrants, and tbe
pressure was found to be up to require
ments and gave entire satisfaction.
Baveiocfc'a Shooting Scrape.
The papers which officially charge
Carter, tbe II are lock man, with shoot

kill have been filed in tbe district court
of Lancaster county. From the com
plaint it appears that Carter beard
young Aldenbruck charge him with
stealing coal. Last Thursday after
noon Carter aggravated matters by
Bhooting Aldenbruck 1s dog and sending
an insulting note to the owner of the
pup. Later Carter and his wife went
ti AMnbi uck's store and became in
valved ia a dispute over a bill for $4.
Carter refused to pay the bill and hot
words ensued, during which Carter
drew a revolver and shoved it under
Aldenbruck-'s nose. Tbe latter dodged
under the counter, and by sliding a
couple of yard? along the floor, secured
his own gun. Then he ordered Carter
and his wife out of the store and
hastened their departure by firing a
bullet over their beads. The couple
left in some haste and a few moments
later a bullet came through the window
glass. An affidavit is filed going to
show that a man on 1 he street beard

Cass Has the (iold-Fever.
The gold-fever has struck a section
of Cass county, as the following dis

Louisville wiil indicate:
Twenty years ago this winter J. G.
Eluber homesteaded and moved his
family on a rough piece of land, which
now borders the village of Louisville.
About the first thing to be done was to

In early days the river bed was south
f its present course, and tbe Iluber
farm is located on the banks of the old
bed. There is a sharp bend in the river
at this point, and tbe idea is advanced
that the object of their search was de
posited here by the channel striking
this point. At any rate everything is
putting on a lively appearance, and
many inhabitants are beginning to

style. Property here is not for sale at
present, and everybody is talking of
gold and prospects.
Retrenchment at Haveloclt.
The master mechanic of the B. & M.
shops at Ilavelock has received orders
from the headquarters at Omaha to
reduce the working force by discharg
ing fifty men. Accordingly on Fri
day some forty of tbe apprentices and
helpers in the machine and blacksmith
shops felt the keen blade of the re
trenchment ax descend upon their
beads, and are now at liberty to accept
any situation that comes their way.
It is also reported that tbe Platts
mouth shops will feel the effect of
further retrenchment in the matter of
fewer hours and five days per week.
Suicide at Nebraska City.
Hart well Baker, aged seventeen, shot
and instantly killed himself at Ne
braska City last Wednesday. In com
pany with Night Watchman Dugan he
was sitting in the watchman's house
on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
bridge, playing with a revolver. Two
chambers of the weapon were empty
and three loaded. The boy placed the
weapon to his temple and pulled the
trigger three times. The last time a
shell exploded and scattered his brains
about the room. No cause is known
for the commission of the rash act.

What does the board of supervisors

mean that Ferrvman Archer, a Ne

proscribed limit, and that Mr. O'Neil.

DELIVERED THE CASH
Greenwood Bank Formally Turns
Over the County Funds.
THE PABKEB BTJBGLABY TRIAL
The Young Man May Find It m DlScnlt
Matter to Prove that His Previous
Reparation Has Been Be
The most recent development in tbe
county cash tangle is the paying over
of the money by the Greenwood Na
tional bank to tbe Bank of Commerce
of Louisville the new depository.
The Greenwood bank decided to re
linquish Monday and notice to that
effect was at once dispatched to tbe
county treasurer's office in this city.
Tbe cash comes, through tbe process
ofexchan e, by way of Omaha, and by
this time every red cent of it is
within the vaults of tbe Louisville
bank drawing 4 per cent interest for
The plan in which the supreme
court was to be petitioned to issue a
writ of mandamuB restraining tbe
county treasurer from drawing on tbe
Greenwood bank for the money, was
a temporary failure. The law firm of
Marquette, Deweese & Mall of Lin
coln had tbe matter in baud on behalf
of several Cass county tax payers, but
as tbe supreme court was not in ses
sion Monday when tbe application
was made, tbe Greenwood bank de
cided to pay over the funds and await
the next sitting of the supreme court
on Feb. 5. when the application will
be again presented and pushed with
Bert Parker's Trial.
The trial of Beit Parker, the former
Cass county boy who lived down at
Rock Bluffs, is in progress at Fre
mont, wbeie be is charged with having
burglarized a U. P. freight car. Law
yer Matt Gering journeyed to Fremont
on Tuesday to assist in Parker's defense,-
and several Plattsmouth people
went with him to testify as to the
prisoner's good character while he re
sided in this county. In this regard
the defense will doubtless be treated
to a sort of surprise, the same to be
furnished by ex-Deputy Sheriff John
Tighe. Some three years ago Parker
was arrested by the ex-deputy at Rock
Bluffs on the charge of rape, but he
crawled out by presenting proof that
he was under eighteen years of age.
Shortly after the episode Parker left
Rock Bluffs, and about a year later he
attempted a criminal assault upon a
four-year-old girl out in tbe western
part of tbe county. A warrant was
issued for bis arrest, but as he had
taken the precaution to flee, the officers
filed the paper away for future ose.
Mr Tighe was also a passenger for
Fremont on Tuesday and had tbeun
nsed warrant tucked safely within bis
inside pocket. It will be used by the
prosecution at the trial.
