New Norfolk Commercial club di
rectors : A. L. Kllllan , L. P. Paso-
walk , F. A. Heeler , W. A. Wltzlgmnn.
11. A. Pnscwalk , J. E. Haase. C. P.
Parish , C. C. Gow , C. J. Fleming. Mr.
Gow Is the only new member , the oth-
rr eight having been re-elected at the
annual meeting held in the city hall.
It was the most enthusiastic meet
ing that the Norfolk Commercial club
has over held. Despite- the below-zero
weather , every chair in the city hall
was occupied , the gathering being
made up of representative business
men. The atmosphere was filled with
more optimistic faith In the future of
Norfolk than had been known in
years. President Kllllan said ho never
had felt so good over a Commercial
rlub meeting as he did over this one ,
and when the session ended , near mid
night , the business men present scenv
ed all to feel that the time had come
when Norfolk \uis about to do the
great things by way of developing Into
the commercial metropolis of a rich
territory , which its natural location
and railroad facilities have planned
for its destiny.
There was a very pronounced souti
nient among those present that mass
meetings of the business men of this
sort should bo held every little while
perhaps every three months , In ordei
to talk over the possibilities of the
pity and to generate new enthusiasm
President Killlan's annual roporl
was received enthusiastically. II
showed that a good many things hat ;
been done during the year for Nor
folk's advancement which were wortl :
while and productive of results. Tin
report showed that the club has todaj
only 100 members , but from the onthu
siusm manifest at this meeting am
from the fact that there are a mini
her of new business men In the cltj
"who have not yet been Invited to joli
tlu club , It is believed that a cam
palgtt for new members would be cm
Iiiontly successful at this time.
Frank Pilger , present county super
Intcndcnt of Pierce county and edlto :
and publisher of the Nebraska Schoo
Review , was present at the meeting
Ills magazine of fifty-two pages hai
been published In Norfolk two year :
and on motion the Commercial clul
voted to give him It. * , moral supper
and it committee was'- appointed t <
confer with Mr. Pilger.
Treasurer Pasewalk read ns ! report
which showed that there yet reitialnei

bursements for the year were $ S19XE !
Races Here , After All.
More hope was Injected Into tin
race committee who Thursday nigh
unuouneed there would be no races ii
Norfolk next summer. The club Is ti
give all aid possible to the race coin
uiittee and it looks now as if the race
will come to Norfolk this year at'to
all. A motion was made and carrlei
that Norfolk have these races and r
M. Barrett was asked to meet will

President K1 Mian's Report.
President Killlan said :
Members of the Norfolk Coininercin
Club and Friends : Some one lias sat
"It is better to live a maxim than t
tell it. " Nevertheless I feel that
few words from mo will do no ham
It has been customary here for th
president or sei-ietary to tell what th
board of directors has done the pas
year. Whether we have done nine' '
or little we must leave to you to judge
Some things we have attempted hav
not yet been accomplished , but "Horn
was not built in a day , " nor will Noi
fork be. If you could say that nothln
has been accomplished it would not b
right to condemn the board of direc
ors. I can say that no set of me
ever had a greater desire nor mad
any greater effort for the welfare e
the city In which they lived than ha
this board with whom I have had th
pleasure of working the past tw
jears. I am not here to make e :
cuses. Excuses are not what we wan
It is results we need and must luivi
The present board of directors ai
till business men and .havo their ind
vldual business interests to look afte
In addition to this they have give
their best efforts for the upbuilding <
our little city. True we have not a
compllshed all that we have attemp
ed , but I will ask the man who
prone to criticise if he always accon
pllshcs his end.
There is one tiling more than an
other that I wish to Impress on tl :
members of the Commercial club ,
do not mean the directors , I mean tl
whole Commercial club and all mer
bers of the club.
We need your help , we need yet
suggestions and we need your mone
If something looks good It is our dul
to attempt to get it. Sometimes v
fall because of lack of support hot
iluanclal and moral. . We have put :
time and labor , we have spent our o\\
money and often no credit is given f <
our effort , when as a matter of fa
some one outside and not we is r
spouslblo for failure.
I wish every member of the Norfo
Commercial club would feel that ho
a part of the club , that success d
ponds on his personal efforts , and
wish that we had I50 ! members Instet
of 100. I wish every man was a hoot
or. I wish that everybody would a
predate his own worth to this coi
munity. I wish every man would ret
Izo how good a town Norfolk is and I
possibilities. I have absolute faith
Norfolk , I have faith In its future at
in its growtli and advancement , but
believe , too , that we must all woi
together. It does not make any d
forcnco in what line of business yc
are engaged or what your occupatlc
or profession way be , you can do yoi
share to aid the growth of our city.
The Year's Record.
It does not "listen bad" when v
r- hear what has really been douo
Norfolk the past year. Olvo the credit
where It rightfully belongs , but like
wise take credit to yourself for your
linrt In the attainments of our busy
little city. The citizens of Norfolk
have commenced the erection of a
beautiful $2r,000 Y. M. C. A. building ;
ihrougli tlio offoitB of some a beauti
ful $10,000 Carnegie library has boon
completed ; seven blocks of paving has
been laid ou Norfolk avenue.
Wo have entertained not less than
ten conventions and In every case our
guests have gone away with praise
for our citizens and our city.
Last spring when there was danger
of poor sccel coin being planted , let-
lers , together with a formula feir testIng -
Ing corn , we're mailed to the farmers
living around Norfolk. The study of
good roads tins taken considerable
Lime of your directors and has ended
In our securing through our county
commissioners the inheritance tax
fund of more than $1,500 for the pur
pose of building three mid one-hall
miles of oil roael on South Thirteenth
street. The practicability of oiled
roads has been thoroughly demon
strated and we believe that our little
slarl will bo Ihe means of our getting
miles of good roads leading into Nor
folk , which of course wo all must ael
mlt will improve our city and the farm
land surrounding It.
An effort has been made by your dl <
rectors lo promote an interurban rail
road from Norfolk southwest through
Madison county which would bring us
in contact with some of the richest
farming land In the stale of Nebraska
This project has not been abandoned
Wo ( Irmly believe it is plausible ami
worthy of our efforts. Lack of lime
to devote to tlio matter and lack ol
funds are the only reasons that greater
or progress has not boon made.
An effort lias boon made to organize
n stock company and purchase a tracl
of land ami give the use of it to the
city for the purpose of holding al
kinds of athletic games , race meets
stock shows , etc. While there Is ne
assurance thai Ibis will bo accomplished
plishod yel there is hope , and surelj
a move of this kind Is commendable
even though it does nol iiicel will
every one's views. We have been con
stantly watching for an opportunity o :
securing some factory or Industry le
occupy soiiio of our vacant building !
that are suitable for various Indus
tries.x We have been unsuccessful li
our efforts , but believe that the di
rectors next year should continue theli
e-fforts In Ibis direction. Sooner 01
later we will secure something wortl
while. In several cases exccssiv <
freight rates have boon the means o
our failure along these lines. Tin
Commercial club had a thorough or
gani/.ution of workers to carry tin
The Commercial club secured spe
clul train service for the state convcn
tion of Commercial clubs at CoUimbui
and was represented by about fort ;
members , Iho l rgesl representatloi
of any club in the state.
You will notice in our report tha
our secretary , Mr. L. P. Pasewalk , ha
made no charge for his.services. . . Prc
vlous years $300 per annum has beci
paid the secretary. We have not hui
sufficient revenue to pay a secretary
There are several other things mule
way that if they are accomplished wll
bo wortl. ' ' of your praise.

D has been to assist Mr. Carlson 1

Ing Norfolk famous and his living hei

things will not only give our city pu

Neligh , Neb. , Jan. M. Special to
The News : Fire between 10 and 11
o'clock yesterday morning destroyed
the farm house and contents of Wil

miles northeast of Noligli. Had Mrs.

telephone , but upon her arrival she
she discovered that the neighbor had
no telephone. In her excitement she
