The Board ot Trade meet to-night
and we understand there will be a
proposition brought before them to
aid or encourage the building of a Ho
tel in some way.
The Messrs. Heroldfoffer to change
their original programme and instead of
building two stores on the site of the
old Saunders House, they will run the
building up three stories, put in hea
vier walls and make a neat hotel with
fifty-seven rooms, if any aid is given
them by the town. They think S2.000
extra will do this and that the citi
zens ought to aid to that extent.
Every member of the Board of Trade
ought to be and mu3t be present, and
others interested in the welfare of the
town and owning property should give
attention to this matter. If the prop
erty owners hang back and the busi
ness men decline to interest themselves
now, we may wkistle for a Hotel here
for years to coma. Show yourselves
at the meeting to-night and be prepar
ed to put up or shut up about a Hotel.

The .Melzger Case.
The case of the State of Nebraska
vs Gotlieb Metzger has engaged the
attention of several of our courts and
has we presume, attracted the atten
tieu of a goodly portion of the people
of the county, and as a large bill of
costs has been made, which either the
county or Mr. Metzger will have to pay
we will give a brief history of the case
Mr. Metzger was arrested upon the
complaint of Henry Hoffmeister
charged with wilfully and maliciously
stoning the house of Hoffmeister in
the village of Louisville, on or about
the 4th day of May.
This complaint was filed with Judge
Sullivan and a warrant issued. Metz
ger took a change f venue from Judgo
Sullivan's court, to Judge Vivian's
court; Judge Vivian dismissed the
case on the technical ground, that the
complaint did not specify the time pos
itively enough, because it contained
the words "or about."
Another complaint was immediately
written in the presence of Judge Viv
ian, and read in his hearing, but taken
before Judge Sullivan and filed. Im
mediately after and before J udge Sul
livau issued a warrant Metzger's At
torney filed a complaint against them
before Judge Vivian aud Metzger vol
untarily walked into court and plead
guilty, and the court fined bin one
Judge Sullivan also issued a war
rant en the complaint filed before him
and Metzger was arrested at Louis
ville and bronchi before Judge Sulli
van. Another change of vonue was
taken, the case going to Justice Arch
er at Rack Bluffs, this time.
On last Wednesday night M. A. llar
tigan appeared for Metzger and filed a
plea of former conviction. J. B. Strode
appearing for the prosecution, filed a
reply alleging that the former convic
viction was obtained by collusion and
fraud. After the case was argued, at
length by counsel, Justice Archer
overruled the plea of former convic
tion ; and Tuesday the case was tried
upon its merits and Mr. Metzger was
fined S28.00 and costs, and sentenced
to one day's imprisonment in the coun
ty jail. We understand Metzger has
