A MEETING CALLED
For Next Friday Evening at the
LOOKING OVER THE YARDS.
The B. M. People Will Consider the
KtqaHt of Tbclr Trainmen to Make
A meeting of all citizens interested
in the welfare and prosperity of our
city is called to meet at the court
house on next Friday evening. The
meeting will consider an important
proposition, looking to the location of
a large manufacturing establisment at
Plattsmouth, and it is desired to have
a large attendance. By order of chair
man of committee. Geo. E.Dovky.
Looking Over the Yards.
Two or three weeks ago the trait
men on the Burlington running be
tween Oreston and Lincoln complained
to the management of the road thai
the run between the two points was
too long for one division, and asked
that Plattsmouth be again made a
division point, so that their runs
would begin and end in this city
Pacific Junction was formerly a divi
. sion point, but the train men do not
want to return to the Junction for the
reason of lack of residence accommoda
tions, and prefer this city as a place of
residence. As is usual in such cases.
no intimation has been given by the
railroad company concerning what ac
tion may be taken by them, but that
they are giving the matter considers
tion is evidenced by the fact that an
examination of the yards here was
made last week, probably for the pur
pose of finding out what could be done
in the way of increasing the trackage
and what additional room could b
secured in the yards, so it is
within the range of possibility for
Plattsmouth to again be a division
point on the road.
New Burlington Extension.
Mike Elmore, the Black Hills rail
road contractor, was Tuesday awarded
the contract for filling in the big
bridge across Anna creek and other
bridges on tbe Spearflsh extension of
the Burlington & Missouri's Black
Hill9 line. Thepiice is understood to
be about 33 cents per yard. Kilpat
rick Bros., James Ryan and W. S
Ileckert were the other bidders. This
will complete the work on that part of
tbe road. It is through the section
where the recent labor troubles have
occurred, and 100 men receiving $2 and
over per day were forcibly prevented
by the Miners' union from digging
ditches for a mining company, the
union alleging that they should re
ceive S3 to $3.60 per day. No trouble
is anticipated in keeping railroad
laborers at work at reasonable wages
A Bow In the Third Ward.
Report reaches this office concerning
a bloody row which occurred up in tht
Third ward last Saturday afternoon
It appears that a man, name unknown
while passing the residence of Unclt
"Walker, the colored man, living at the
corner of .Ninth and Granite streets
made some insulting remark to one of
the women of the household, where
upon three husky darkeys appeared on
the scene and gave the white offender
a severe drubbing so severe, in fact
that hereafter he will have a date in
bis calendar by which he can recall
subsequent events. This paper has no
use whatever for a man who would
offet insult to a woman, be he or she
white or black, and believes that in
this case the offender received exactly
the punishment bis offense deserved
Ward Is Bound Over.
The case of the State vs. W. S. Ward
cuargeu wun aisposing or some
mortgaged corn, heard before Justice
Archer last Saturday, resulted in the
defendant being bound over for trial
in the district court, and bis bond was
fixed at 8300. When his case was tirst
called and continued, Ward was al
lowed to go and his personal recogniz
ance taken for his appearance when
wanted. But upon the day set he
failed to appear, resulting in an ex
pense of several dollars to the county.
Now he will have to put up a real bond
to tbe value of 1300, or remain in
Looks Bad For Parker.
The people from this city who were
called to Fremont Tuesday as wit
nesses in the trial of tbe state vs. Bert
Parker report that the outlook is first
class for Parker serving the state for
a term. The evidence against bim is
positive, as he was taken in the act of
burglarizing a freight car on the On ion
Paci fic at Fremont. The eloquence of
Attorney Gering may pull bim through
however, at least lessen his punish
ment. And still Plattsmouth is minus a
democratic postmaster. When ! oh,
when I will we be satisfied in this ever

AROCND THE COURT BOOMS.
Ilans Hendrickson vs. W. II. Pool,
Jos. M.. Beardsley, S. W. Orton and J.
T. Ritchey is the title of a suit filed
in the district court. Uendriokson
alleges that by reason of Mr. Pool's
failure to properly record a mortgage.
while the latter was register of deeds,
he was damaged in tbe sum of $2,500
Messrs. Orton, Beardsley and Ritchey

JUSTICE ARCHER'S COURT,
.lames Cavanangh, a stone mason
from Nehawka.was taken in oat of
he cold in an intoxicated condition
Funsday. Judge Archer thought
the kind act on the part of tbe police
was worth a total of $7 80, and Cavan
augh drew a sight draft on Nehawka
friends for the amount. Pending the
arrival of the funds his presence at
the jail furnishes security.

Geo. W. Young returned home from
the county seat Wednesday, the com
missioners having completed their
work at this time. Mr. Young has
made a good record at the bginninp
of his term of office, and it was largely
through his influence that the order
was given for cleaning up the old
county jail, the letter of the other two
members of the board in the Isews to
the contrary notwithstanding. Ne
In a conversation with a newspaper
correspondent recently Justice Post of
the Nebraska supreme court expressed
himself very favorably ta the commis
sion- lie Deuevea rue comminsiuu as
of more value to tbe interests having
business before the court than an in
crease in the membership of the main
court, for the reason that the time of
the court is largely taken up with the
routine work of the regular sessions,
such as listening to arguments and
passing upon motions The commis
sion is hampered by none of this routine
work and is thus enabled to give its
entire time to the consideration ol
cases placed in its hands by the su
preme court. The operation of the law
for nearly a year has ronvinced the
court of the value of the commission.

The regular occasional prize fight
occurred at West Lincoln Saturda)
night, when Lou Cardner, colored, and
tbe "Denver Kid" met in fistic array.
They fought six rounds in pretty gooa
spirit, the Kid getting slightly the
worst of it. At the end of that round
he explained that he had just come
out of the penitentiary, had enjoyed
no chance to train and was not in good
trim. He said he would fight one more
round and quit, whether he was
knocked out or not. The seventh
round was a draw and they divided
the money. Then someone who had
put up money on the Kid swiped him
a lick for luck and a free fight ensued

Constable Chas. Spence of Louisville
was in town Tuesday. He reports that
the Louisville gold-find is actual. He

be unearthed in paying quantities.
