The county board carefully Inspectoc
the new jail again yesterday , and took
pains to measure and examine every do
tall so as to bo snro that the people were
getting all they paid for. They soemoc
perfectly satisfied , and conld find no flaws
or causa for complaint. Tho' bo arc
seems to bo especially careful , and the
taxpayers cannot bnt rest easy at the
prospect of the new court house project
bolng In the hands of men who bavo
tholr confidence , and who show such de
termination to have every dollar go as
far bs possible.
A number of search warrants and writs
were Issued by Judge Aylcsworth yester
day , and placed In the hands of officers ,
who hunted up the places whore U was
supposed that liquors were bolng aold
without a license being paid. In each
case the officers reported that they oould
find no liquor , or else the places were
closed np , When one of Council Binds
officers cannot get into a saloon , or find
( something to drink , it Is clearly proved
that either there is no saloon , or else the
barrels are dry. They are making thcr
ougn work In this line.
There were several plain drunks In the
pjlloo court yesterday , all of whom were
fined except one , named Merrlam , who
claimed that ho como to town with only
fifteen cents , and that after spending five
cants for a glass of beer , he proposed to
gamble with the rest of his capital , bnt
was ordered away from the table , and es
he did not want to go , a policeman was
called on to arrest him , and he
was charged with being drunk ,
The jailer testified that Merrlam was
not what ho would call drunk when
brought in , and Merrlam insisted that ho
conld not ooo how he could get drunk on
ono gUts of ber. The judge concluded
that the polica had put him In to save him
losing his money , and so let him go , bis
ten cent ) being handed him by the clerk ,
MORE MANUFACTURING ,
Move to Hftlao $100,000 to En-
courngo Snch Enterprises tn
Council Ulnflfc ,
Oonncll Binds needs moio minufictnr *
leg enterprises , and with a llttlo exertion
on the psrt of her citizens and moneyed
men could easily Increase the number.
This fact has been patent to many for a
long time , bnt each seems waiting for
aomo ono else to make a move , and what
la everybody's business la no ones. A
ichomo Is now being talked up , and prom
ises to prove a success , It being
In brief an organization with
ample capital for encouraging
and fostorln manufacturing enter
priser * hero. It Is proposed to have ono
hundred shares of $1,000 each , making a
total of $100,000 , and thia to bo Invested
In different enterprises as they thall com
mend thomsolvoa to the judgment of the
members of the organization , If , for in
stance a manufacturing enterprise wants
to locate hero , It can bo encouraged by
this organization taking a certain amount
of stock in the company , The city has
many advantages to offer as a manufac
turing point , and If besides thcsa
advantages , a man desiring to
start an ontorprlso hero conld
bo aasurod of some help and encourage
ment , snch enterprises csnld easily bo
secured hero. More than this , the more
fact tint Council BlullY own citizens
stand willing to Invest In such enter
prises would bo a clinching proof that
thoao who llvo here , and who have every
opportunity of judging of the advantages
of the city , are BO confident that It Is a
good point that they are willing to Invest
their own money , and take a part of the
risk , Instead of asking strangers
to do It all. Such n showing of
confidence in Council Bluffs would
do more than anything elao to establish
confidence In others. The plan pro
posed is to have each sbaro ot $1,000
paid In only aagood Investments are found
for It. If , after securing subscriptions
for the whole $100,000 , some ontorprlso
Is found , which Is a worth
ono , and which would locate hero , th
company wonld take § 10,000 c
the stock , then each ah are woul
bo called on for $100 , and
after another good chance presented It
self another assessment conld bo mado. .
Thus the money will not have to ba pal
In all at once , and what Is paid In la no
a mcro free-will offering , but will prov
an Investment , on which the chances nr
that fair returns will bo had. The mor
profit on the Investment is not , however ,
the main object to which those who an
working on the plan are looking forward ,
The chief purpose Is to so work as to se
cure what Council Bluffs needs so badly ,
tuoro manufacturing. Ono hundred cltl
zens In this city could easily shoulder
this enterprise , It being only a thousand
dollars [ each , and that In Installments
and $100,000 thus divided among varlon
manufacturing enterprises would call intt
this city several hundred thousand dollars
lars of manufacturing. The starters o
the enterprise are quite enthusiastic over
It , and propoao to push right along to a
Buocoasfnl completion of the organization
A Card From Win. H. Brooks ,

HE TALKED TOO MUUH ,
A. Veteran Fireman Discharged for
Telling " \Vh t lie Thought
of the Mnyor.
The announcement that Charlie Nichol
son , the veteranOrornnnhad boon thrown
out of his position as driver of No. 1 ,
caused no llttlo talk yesterday. Nichol
son Is a first clats fireman , and baa only
had ono fault , and that he has bravely
fought and snccoitfally for aomo time ,
and has always been ready and eager for
duty. Hence there were many surmises
as to what had caused him to be laid off.
The solution of the mystery Is said to bo
that the fireman has a tongue which ho
unoa freely to express what Is on the In
side. Whoa ho found that the mayor's
llttlo paper bad opened war not only on
aomo of his friends , bat had attacked the
reputation of defenceless women and In
nocent children , Nicholson's blood boiled ,
and ho declared that the mayor's paper
would ba llko thn Irishman's polecat , If
let alone It wonld soon dlo as the result
of Its own foolishness , and from
over-exertion. This vraa said
In the presence of "Left
Handed Joe , " who Immediately proceed
ed to Inform the editor mayor , who
promptly caused the fireman to bo thrown
iff the force. Such Is the current ex
planation , but the mayor says through
bis organ , that Nicholson had too much
booze , and adds significantly that "he
talked too much with his month. " This
Is the mayor's Idea of free speech.
Not in Paying Qunntltiov ,
When the east end of the county nude
such an efiort to got a term of court and
a deputy clerk established at Avoca , there
were roseate plctnrlngs of the amount of
business which would bo done there , but
the report of the clerk for the past five
months does not shoir that it Is a paying
Investment for the county so far. It
needs developing badly. From the first
} f April to the first of Junp the following
iroro the receipts of the clerk :

A Heavy Transfer ,
E. P. Oalilwcll , who was lately prao-
Icing law hero , and who baa now located
u Washington territory , has been In the
Ity for 5 fo w days , and the purpose of
ils mission has now become known. He
its just sold his farm In Monona county ,
cgether with lands In Shelby county ,
o Mr. H. L. Votaw , the whole oonuld
ration reaching the snug little turn of
:3i,000. : The farm thus transferred con-
tits of 1,037 acres , and there is B
largo amount of stock and
many Improvements. Mr. Votaw
has been living In ' "Washington territory
for a year and a half past , but formerly
was a resident of this state , Salem being
his homo. Ho Intends to move back to
Iowa and take possession of his farm , and
It Is not unlikely ho will make this city
his residence , and look after his Inter ca'fl '
from this as headquarters , Mr. Caldwell
will In a few days leave for the east , and
after visiting Now York , will return to
hla now homo In Washington territory.
