Will Celebrate July Third.
Norfolk will colcbrntu Uio Fourth of
3nly this ycnr In n manner calculated
to nmUo up for omissions iiiutlo ( hiring
tlio past four years. This was formally
voted at the ( iimrtcrly nicotliiK of tlio
Commercial club hold at the city hall
last ovcnliiB. Tlio Hontlment of the
nnthurliiK ueoiml to favor n colobratlon
every year In jimtlco to the people of
this Immediate vicinity who arc not
in a position or who do not care to so
oloowhoro. Sentiment also favored the
elimination of money making features.
Many Take Part In Discussion.
The Fourth of July discussion was
thrown open to the meeting by Presi
dent A. L. Kllllan. Councilman Her
man Winter was the first to declare
himself. Ho favored a colobratlon be
cause none had boon hold hero for
four years. Mr. Winter explained that
while business men and other towns
people might organize excursions to
neighboring towns , the bulk of the
jieoplo stayed at home. A celebration
was duo to the farmers of this vicinity.
Former Mayor H. C. Matrau thought
that Norfolk had hold off long enough
and that the people In the surrounding
towns would like to come hero and
celebrate. Ho moved that a celebra
tion bo held.
W. N. Huso being called on , declared
that a town had an obligation to fur
nish some entertainment to the people
of the surrounding territory and that
ho believed Norfolk owed It to Its
customers to hold a celebration every
year and a free celebration at that
In fact ho would have everything free
lint boor and dinner , and didn't know
but what It would bo a good plan to
have a barbecue and servo free din
ner.C. . H. Groesbeck , stating that the
fourth came on Sunday , advanced rea
sons for n colobratlon on the preced
ing Saturday and his suggestion was
Incorporated In Mr. Matrau's motion.
W. C. Roland , C. C. Gow , W. II
Blnltenmn and Rev. Edwin Booth , Jr.
spoke In favor of an Independence da >
celebration. Mr. Booth thought that
the celebration gave unity to the town
ami was demanded by patrlptism.
The motion to celebrate was adopted
without opposition. In the suggestions
which followed W. .T. Stadelman wanted
the celebration advertised on Uie same
principles as a circus. E. A. Bullock
declared for a celebration every year
John Krantz thought the flrst celc
brutlon should bo of a character which
would make the following celebrations
popular. U P. Pasewalk wanted a
ban placed on money-making ideas con
nccti'd with the celebration. Mayoi
Sturgeon thought that an annual cole
brat ion might look hoggish , but W. N
Iluse explained that quite the opposite
attitude was to be taken as the cele
brutlon represented nn expenditure
and that there were plenty of farmers
to drive to Pierce and plenty to drive
to Norfolk. He did not think a towi
could get away from the proposltloi
that It owed It to Its customers to give
them a celcbrat'lon.
Chautauqua- Brought Up.
The 'question of a chautauqua was
brought up and discussed and , aftei

tlon , was turned over to the directors

tary's report covering the past quar
tor. President A. L , . Kllllan of the loca

to be an Impression he said that the
nine directors constituted the club
What was trying to be accomplished
was for everyone's Interest and reall >
was no more the directors' business
than anybody else's except that thcj
had been chosen officers of the club
Mr. Kllllan explained the time whlcl
was devoted to the weekly meetings
and the committee work and read the
constitution to explain th'e wide pur
poses of the club. The active support
of a largo n\embership was needed. He
Invited dliect criticism and sug
gestions. Direct criticism was a
mighty good thing , he declared , but
criticism under cover had been weak
ening the enthusiasm of members and
was tending to work against what ever
efforts were made for the good of the
town. Nothing could be accomplished
without time and without some money.

now lacking In Nebraska.

opportunity to develop ? " demanded
Mr. Gurney , "It is up to you to Haj

ng for nurses and attendants nt the

New Junction Depot Rumored.
Rumors in railroad circles of a new
Northwestern depot and headquarters
offices at the Junction have a suf
ficient aspect of substance to have led
to the purchase of a few lots on
South Fourth street near the proposed
now site , which Is the old roundhouse
location jusf east of South Fourth
street. At least one of these pur
chasers Is now n First street restau
rant man at the Junction.
Northwestern officials have not ad
mitted that there- has been any
change In the south Norfolk depot
situation. The old depot Is not
adequate , while the headquarters of
fices are even less adequate to house
properly the several officers.
It has been reported at times that
a stone building of . ample size has
been contemplated and various plans
submitted. The number of changes to
be worked out , however , such for In
stance as tile disposition of the eat
ing house building , Is such as to com
plicate the matter.

around he smiled and oaid he blamed
Ynnkton jiooplo not nt all , fgr tiding
8kopticalk"about the road , which -had
been couttng alpnfi now for so many
Continuing Mr. Graham Bald now
ho came with a very bright and cheer
ful message , that In n chat with Mr.

who represents the fiscal end of the
