Plattsmouth Daily Herald;
excerpts from issues dated September 3 - 8, 1891, continued


September 8, 1891

A Mistake
(complete article)

THE HERALD stated in yesterday's paper that Messrs Chandler and Rasmusser had purchased a large quantity of liquor and proceeded to the home of the former to have a general good time. Since then we have been reliably informed that Mr. R. left Chandler's before the trouble commenced, and these gentleman[sic] state there was not a sufficient amount of liquor about the premises to intoxicate in the least. THE HERALD simply desires the facts in the matter and desires to treat all parties fairly hence the correction.

THE EVENING NEWS. Plattsmouth, Neb., Thursday, November 5, 1891

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

The Missouri Pacific Company Purchases a Tract of Land Midway Between This City and Murray.

The Omaha Southern railway company – the Missouri Pacific – has recently purchased from Silas Long and Joseph Cook a considerable tract of land adjacent to the line about three and one-half miles south of this city, or about half way between this city and Murray. The land is a portion of the Long and Cook farms and the railroad company intends to put in sidetracks at that point. The transfer of the property was recorded yesterday, and was shown in the report compiled by Polk Bros. as follows: Silas Long and wife to Omaha Southern Railway Co., warranty deed, consideration one dollar, part of northeast quarter of northwest quarter, 35-12-13. Mary Cook and husband to same, warranty deed, consideration one dollar, part of southeast quarter of southwest quarter, 26-12-13. The actual consideration was of considerable value, however. As is usual in such cases nothing definite can be learned of the intentions of the railroad company in regard to their purchase. It may mean that the company will simply construct a side track for passing purposes, or it may be their intention to erect grain elevators at this point and thus become an active competitor of the B. & M. for the grain carrying trade, which trade is now monopolized by the latter company. And then again, it may mean the construction of small repair shops or possible large shops. In any event, nothing but time will disclose the company’s intentions. The purchase of this land may have an important significance to this city – and it may not.
