Alderman Hpotman had bin official at

Oil ios Meet and Have an

i
The committee appointed by the ' |
bo.inls of trade of Omaha and Coun
cil ninth met in joint session in the
former city last Saturday afternoon.
Colonel Sapp , of Council BltilFs , was
chosen chairman , and Thomas Oib-
son , KSIJ. , of Omulm , Hocrotary. The
object of the meeting wna staled to
bo to take stops which it was hoped .
would result ultimately in the build
ing of a wagon , foot and street car
bridge between the two cities. j
The question first discussed was in
regard to the location of the bridge ,
and it wat expressed aa the unani
mous belief of the entire joint com
mittee that it should bo at the foot of
llrondwiiy in Council HluH * and at
the foot of Douglas street in Omaha.
The question ns to which it wan
best to build , u high or low bridge ,
was also discus ed , and during such
discussion the lact of railway tracks
on thu low bottom on the Omaha aide
waa talked about. It was thought
they might operate prejudicially to a
low bridge ,
The inquiry was made as to thu
height of these tracks ubovo low
water mark , and it wna stated they
were not more than five feet above
low water mark. Tt was then ttug-
godtcd that a low bridge would have
to bo above high water mark , and
that high water murk was twenty-two
feet Mid eight inches above low water
mark. For this reason nn approach
might be constructed nn the Omaha
side , so as to allow thu engines and
cars to pass under the same. An in
quiry was then made as to whorhor a
bill miijht not be drawn so as to build
either a high or a low bridge , in the
discretion of the parties building the
siunu , both plans being provided for
in the bill to bo built in conformity
to un act of congress , directing how
bridgoi across the Missouri river
shall be constructed , which act is now
in force , and it was unanimously
thought advisable to provide for
building either n high or low bridge
aa might be adopted by the parties
building the name.
Nothing whatever was said about
building n bridge as high as Farnham
street , neither was a plan propos
ed by which it was to be built by the
two cities , nor was anything said
about aid from either of the cities.
Something was said about aid
from Vottawattamio and Douglas
counties , but it seemed to be the
ununimoiiH belief of both committees
that if a bridge was built at all , it
would have to bo done by private
capital , and an a private enterprise.
It was agreed that they would bo
careful to see that a low rate of
charge should bo specified in the bill
to bo introduced in congress , as the
maximum rate of charges , so as to
make it ns near a free bridge as possi
ble , giving to the parties only such
remuneration aa would b3 just for the
money expended.
It was unanimously agreed that ten
gentlemen should bo elected from
among the citizens of Council Bluffa
and ten gentlemen from the citizens
of Omaha , as incorpor.xtora , whoso
names should be inserted in n bill to
bo prepared authorizing the construc
tion of such bridge. The opposition
to such u bridge was freely discussed
and it was generally supposed that
there would bo but little opposition
from any source , excepting from the
Union Pacific railroad , which now has
a complete monopoly of all transpor
tation and travel between the two
cities.
It is not true as stated in The Non
pareil thit : Omaha made any demand
of any kind in respect to said bridge.
The proposition to construct said
bridge coming from Council JJlull's the
committee representing Omaha scorn
ed to defer to the committee from
Council lUulla , stating that they were
in titter ignorance of what proposi
tions were to be made ; that they sup
posed the Council Binds people had
matured plans and had agreed
in the main aa to the con
struction of the bridge ; that thop
were willing and desirous of aiding in
any way they could in such enter
prises. It was also stated by them
that they had citizens who would take
stock , and it was stated by the com
mittee from Council lilulls that there
were citizens in that city who would
do the same thing.
These were the main topics talked
over by these committees on Satur
day afternoon , as TIIK BKK is informed
by members of the committee repre
senting Council Blufl's. I'm
DKK is also informed that tc
prevent any misrcprosontationt
being made by the ne'wspapo'rs , in
reaped to what was done at the moot
injf on Saturday , the committee ap <
pointed by the board of trade oi Coun
cil Binds had the acting secretary ol
that board accompany them to Omaha ,
and directed him to take full minutet
of all that was said and done , but thii
precaution does not seem to have boon
as ell'ective as the Nonpareil in its is
sue yesterday morning makes a wan
ton , wilful and intentional miorepro
sontation of what did tuku place , foi
no other purpose than to deceive tin
citizens of Council lilullH. Whothoi
this was done to serve the Unioi
Pacific railway company , and U
continue its monopoly , thu Nonparei
can explain. That tmch i.s the ell'ec
no one can deny. TDK Bn : says tin
Nonpareil willfully and intentionally
misrepresented what took place bo
Oman it waa informed that the citi
editor of that paper had free aecos"
to the minutes kept by Mr. Buird
the acting secretary of the Counei
Blutl'a board of trade. '
The insinuation in the Nonparoi
that Omaha proposed a kind of bridgi
or any kind of bridge in her interea
is without any foundation whatever
Most of tlio conversation was carrioi
on by citizens of Council Bluffs during
the meeting , and it in understood that
not a single suggest ion made in le
aped to the local ton of the bridge ,
the character of the bridge , or the
means by which the simc should bo
constructed , was opposed by the com
mittee representing Omaha.
Mr. .Joining : ) , of the firm of Stcclo
it Johnson , Omaha , was invited by
the joint committees to ho present ,
and was not there as a committee
man , nor of his own motion , and the
statement in the Nonpareil that Mr.
.Johnson said "that Omaha desired
and wanted a bridge that would bo
above the lines of the tracks of the
Burlington fc Missouri on the bottoms
toms , and that a canvass of the busi
ness interests of that city was in favor
of liavinf the same at least as high as
Farnham street at Ninth street , " ii
utterly false in every line , syllable and
letter. Mr. Johnson made no such
statement. On the 'contrary , Mr
Johnsoiigavonoopinion aa to whether
the bridge ought to boa high ono or a
low one. Ho spoke of the Burling
ton & Missouri having procured
the low ground uottth of FArnhnm
street ; that they wore going to till
the same in , but this is south of
whore the proposition was to locate
the bridge , Fnrnham street being
south of Douglaa street. Mr. John
son did state that he believed it
would bo greatly to the interest of
both cities to have a wagon bridge. _
It was also stated nt the meeting
that wholesale merchanta in both
cities Imuldcd a great deal of their
merchandise across the river by wag
on to MWO time.
Tlio move for a bridge is one which
interests greatly the people of both
cities , and TIIK BHK feels , therefore ,
in duty bound o give the public the
exact facts of this meeting in detail
and at somo'longth , in view of the dis
torted statements made by the Non
pareil in its aUompt to throw cold
water on the plan and deceive the
public as to the purposes sought.
The committees upon adjournment
decided to meet in Council Bind *
Saturday afternoon , the I'.Hh hint. , to
take further otopH toward the seeming
of this object HO much desired.

rty owners , and expressed a desire
hat the contract for paving the street
a not let on the 17th aa advertised ,
iut that the matter bo deferred un ti
ftor it was ascertained what the
water works company was to do. The
iroporty o A nors thought it inadvisable
o pave before the mains wore laid , as
n laying these mains the pavement
would bo torn up and could not be put
'n so good condition again. On mo-
ion of Alderman Dawaon it was do-
lidetl to open the bids as advertised ,
but to defer letting the contract until
the first council meeting in April.
The finance clerk , Mr. Abbott , pre
sented a report showing the amount
expended for different purposes since
April , 1881. llecordor Hurko took
occasion to prelude this report by say-
"ng that sundry questions had been
asked by the evening paper , but that
all such questions were answered by
just such a report as tlua presented to
the council monthly. The report
showed tlio amount of bills allowed by
the council since April 1 , 1881 , to be
Si7lU0.7 ( ( . Of this amount ? 2i27 (
was for salaries ot officers ; $4,2i ( ! ) for
street lamps ; $ l-iGt for printing ;
$1,81 ! ) for condemnations of right of
way ; 82,11(1 ( for city onginees ; street
numbering , etc. ; § 1,500 tor miaeella-
neoua , including judgments for dam
ages settled , etc. ; $5,7 < > 8 for police ;

streets , alloys and supervisor ; § 0,7-17
for Union avenue levy ; § 1,005 , foi
Fan-mount park ; 81,071 on account ol 1

Although this report was announced j
to be the usual monthly showing tin
council gave a vote of thanks for it.

of warrants for the month of January
to have boon $10,174 ,
The mayor expressed a desire tc
have an inventory made showing whal
property the city * had on hand tc
show for the money that had boon ex
pended under this administration.
The chief of police reported IK

lected amounted to $214 , and 77.50
hud been worked out.
The licenses * collected in January
from 4 ! ) saloon keepers footed ui
$1,228.00.
Aldermen Dawaon , SpetmanChuro <

A communication was presentee
from J , W. Chapman and Hubert t
Porcival , the delegates ehosen to gi
to Washington to work in the inter
ests of tint McOrcary bill , in whicl
Council Blull's is included among tin
eities entitled to appropriations fo
new government buildings. Tin
communication stated that a lettei
hud been received from Sun
Clark , of Keokuk , who \vua at wort
for the same bill in Waahington , am
that this letter was so discouragin
that it was ih-uinod needless to have
delegates sent frmn hure. The com
munication a ! " s'n'c-'l Hiat Congress
man llnpburn n l'i'1 ' for a snrcinl ap-
mopriation fur a govtrnment building
hero had been reported on favorably
by the snb-r > nmittco , nml tlmt if any
bill siicceedrd it would probably bo
this one , instead of the MiCreary bill.
They nlsosus csled that if any dele
gates shall b H-Mit from this city ,
gentlemen hhall bo sent who wore in
Jiarmonj with tiio prusont representa
tive and could A irk wi'h ' him.
The order imtructint. ' 'ho delegates
to go \Vashinuton was therefore
rescinded.
Thoeiuncil onlimod tlio miyor's
proclamation as correct in all respects.
I was announced that a letter was
expected from Col. Montgomery , ex
plaining tlio m.Vter referred to at the
last council meeting concerning his
uxpcnsts as a delegate to Washington
some years ago. The committee to
investiuate the matter was therefore
given moro time.
Alderman Churchill reported that
the cotilcmtmH n for widening Main
street from Eleventh to Sixteenth
Htu-ot would COHC about 82,000 , and
recommended that it be made.
Alderman Fnnda objected. Ho
said that a the Inst meeting it was
reported at 81,000 ; now it was $2,000
and over , nml > t the next meeting it
would bo $5.M10 ( Hn moved to lay
the matter on the tabln , and this was

man voting no.

Alderman Fonda thonuht they
would got just , us much kicking for
spending lit'lc as spending much.
They might .T well KO the whole bnsi-
IIHSS now. The avenue was needed
and should in liuiahed.
Alderman I'litlmnk saidthnr if they
had reached the limit of the money
he felt like stopping.
The mayor suggested that this year's
taxes had not been tested. They
were just dri'sun : ; a baby , to which
their predecessors gave birth. Thn
work should go on.
It was at last decided that Aids.
Fonda , Raine and Unthank should
look into the matter , with power to
act.
act.The
The question aroao about the grad
ing ordered on Main street. It was
announced that the railway track
would have to be raised before much
filling could be done , and the track
could not be raised until the frost was
out. Mr. Baldwin had threatened
to enjoin them if they insisted on
raising the track. The mayor thought
this ought net to flighten them , but
the work should ire ahead , and lot Mr.
Baldwin enjoin if ho wanted to. The
matter was allowed to rest though.
The tmall pox ordinance was defer
red until the next meeting. The or
dinance creating a fifth ward was laid
on the table with no discussion. Aid.
Churchill and Spolman alone opposing
this motion. Aid. Unthank explain
ed his vote by saying that while ho
had always been in favor of a fifth
ward , but ho found so many opposed
to it that he favored laying it on the
table.
A cross-walk was ordered put across
Broadway near Mr. Beobo's store.
Adjournment was then taken.
If any ono desires t > getany po itions
favorably consl'end by the council , now
! H tlio accepted time to present them. The
council seems too good-natuied to refuse
any request now. It is Htrange what a
mellowing influence a coining election
his.
