F. J. Kirchman, Treasurer
J. E. Collings, Councilman, all Republicans

These with the other four councilmen are Fuionists. The first thing the new administration ran up against was severe applications for saloon licenses and against each one was a healthy remonstrance weighted with numerous charges. A. G. Wolfenberger of Lincoln, appeared for the remonstrators and E. E. Good and G. W. Simpson for the applicants. The matter has been continued until May 4. The board is for license. The temperance people say the Slocum Law must be kept to the letter. The city will be dry during the first four days of May.
