Bonds for paving, sewerage and a new
city hall were endorsed by the Commer
cial club at their special meeting held
Wednesday evening for the purpose of
hearing the report of the committee
appointed for the purpose of investi
gating the paving ami sewerage proposi
tions. The paving question was the
main one contained in the report, and
the paving district recommended ex
tends from Platte to Lewis streets, aud
from the south side of Fourteenth to the
alley south of Eleventh street. The
amount of bonds recommended for the
intersections was $15,000, winch the
committee believed would be sufficient
and for the sewer the same amount
would he required. Some time ago
bonds were voted for a city hall, but
after the election had been held it was
found that the city did not have author
ity to issue these The present legisla
ture has a bill before it which will pro
vide for this and in addition to the other
recommendations was one for issuing
15,000 for city hall purpurea should the
bill become a law. The committee
vai composed of Uus. It. Spuicc, II. A.
Clarke, (1. W. Phillips. G. Frisehholz
and L. II. L-avy. The report was adop
ted !y the club without a dissenting
voice, ami those who have been pusbiug

Xet Saturday, April 1st, the fishing
season opens, and already several large
camping outfits aro making ready to be
on the ground as soon as the law will
)Krmit. It appears a hardship lo the
real fisherman, who never goes beyond
the rod and reel to enjoy the sport, to
be compelled to stop in November, just
when his favorite "pike" are doing all
manner of bait-taking stunts. There
should lie no closed 6eaeon for the man
who fishes with rod and reel. But
bear in mind that all sportsmen over
eighteen years of age must take out a
license. This will cost you one dollar at
the office of the county clerk, and may
be the means of saving yon much trouble
in case the "bogey" man comes around.

Commercial Club Elect Officers.
Tuesday evening the Commercial club
held their annua! meeting for the pur
pose of electing officers, and also listen
ing to the reports of the committee ap
pointed to solict funds enough to com
plete the amount required for building
the roads between the city and the
Platte river bridge.
The chairman of the soliciting com
mittee not being present, a report was
made by the three other members, and
they reported subscriptions to the
amount of $810.50, stating that there
were quite a number whom they had
not seen and that they could without
doubt raise the required $1,000. This
report was accepted and the committee
continued until their work was com
pleted. .When the reading of the mitiutes was
completed, 6. A. Schroeder asked that
the report of the committee on paving
be amended so as to include Lewis street
from the south side of Fourteenth to the
alleys south of Eleventh street. After
some discussion a motion was carried
including Lewis street from the north
side of Thirteenth to the alley south of
Eleventh in the proposed paving dis
trict. The committee on paving was al
so given power to take the matter before
the city council.
The club authorized the officers to
confer with the county board and request
them to make formal application for the
government expert to build the proposed
road to the Platte river bridge, as the
amount of money required was practi
cally assured. The committee first ap
pointed on securing the government ex
pert was instructed to sec Mr. Sheldon
and find out what the cost of securing
the proper material would be, the neces
sary gumbo being located on his land,
near the proposed road.
Eight directors were then elected fur a
term of three years, two from each ward.
James Hancy and W J. Walter were
elected in the First ward; Mr. Haney
succeeding F. J . Kersenbrock, who has
removed from the ward, and Mr. Walter
succeeding hiniBclf. In tho secoud ward
the two directors wtio3e terms expire.
Jacob Greisen and 8. J. llyan, were re
elected. In the Third ward the prcbont
members, U. A. Clatke and C. J.Garlow,
were also re-elected. In the Fourth
ward there were three members to elect,
one to till the vacancy caused by the
removal of S. B. Gregg. Thcvacaucy
was tilled by the election of Matt Abts,
and F.J. Gerharz and G. A. Schroeder
were selected; Mr. Schroeder succeeding
11. L. Johnson, who had removed from
the ward, and F. J. Gerhar. succeeding
President Frischhol. was authorized
t select live delegates to attend the
stfjto meeting of commercial clubs at
Kearney the latter part of April, and
these will be announced later.
After the club adjourned the hoard of
directors proceeded to elect olllcera for
the following year, as follows: Presi
dent, G. Frischhol.; vice presidents, Carl
Kramer, CO. Gray. G. A. Schroeder;
secretary, Eilert Mohlman; treasurer,
G. W. Phillips. Before the adjourn
ment of tlie club a motion was unani
mously carried instructing the directors
to re-elect President Frischhol. and Se
cretary Mohlman, aud this was carried
out by the board.
Dante in his wandering in bell saw au
entrance over which were these words.
"All hope abandon ye who enter here."
He asked Virgil what it meant. "It
means the home of the soul to misery
abandoned." Such, however, is not a
normal soul. God has put iu the soul
universal the star of hope.
When the seven classic philosphers
were holding a banquet together it was
asked of them, "What is the most univer
sal possession?" The possession agreed
upon was hope, for said they, "He that
hath nothing else has hope."
A crew of fifteen men once left a burn
ing ship at mid-Pacific. They were
thousands of miles from land. They
had to leave tbe6hipso hastily that they
had not time to take oars, or sail, or any
other tackle or gear with which to pro
duce motion. They were only able to
snatch away some food and water. They
lived six weeks in that boat. The last
twenty days they dreamed every night
of feasting and awoke every morning to
the same starving want, vacant waters
and desolate sky. Yet these men never
lo6t hope for they preceived from the
outset that their boat was ia the current
of an equatorial ocean, a current winch
those who knew the geography of the
sea were aware would slowly but surely
carry them at least to land, which it did.
Sometimes the patience of hope in the
christian life has to lie exercised iu that
waj-. No oar, and no sail; no strength
and no light; for many days neither sun
or moon, no stars appearing, only the
magnet of faith pointing steadily to the
Rock of Ages. But we should never
forget that the hope which God has put
in the soul universal reaches up into a
current that surely drifts Godward if we
arc only following ite bearing.
The pastor of the Congregation nl
ehurch will discuss this subject next
Sunday evening from the theme: The
Man God Created and His Develop

morning theme will be: Christ's Re
quirement. We invite you to share our
church services with us.

The program given for railroad men on
last Friday evening was much apprecia

their families were present nnd enjoyed
even the splashing they received ill the

are showing a steady development on
the part of the fellows who take part and
a very tleoided improvement in ntbletic
ability is noted in all the classes.
Our boys at Monroe carried off high
honors on Monday evening of this week.
An enthusiastic audience greeted and
cheered each successive event as the best
on the program. The opera house was
used and it was crowded to the full
The program started with a marching
drill in which they formed the associa
tion emblem, the Y. M. C. A. letters, und
closed with the cross formation. The
dtimbell drill was followed by the pyra
mid building in one of which the ceiling
was reached. Following the diving
came a talk by llev. Wedge of Genoa in
which he spoke of the ideals of the as
sociation represented by the boys and
inviting the boys to Genoa for a similar
performance. The 100 pound wrestlers
carried the house by storm but the lit)
pound men caused the audience to fairly
raise the roof . The clown boxing event
was very amusing and was fully appre
ciated. In the tumbling the work of
Leonard Linstrum was especially well
received. The program was closed by
the torch club swinging by Mr. Ander

will be taken up mid investigated by
the committee and a report made cover
