here of a social club of business men , on
the plan set forth t > omo time ago in the

many cities of about the fci/.e of Council

bo to have rooms , where visiting business
men from other cities can bo entertained ,
and where the businesc men of this city
can meet in daily , friendly , and informal
converse. Such a club can bo maintained
at little individual expense , and will
servo as a great help in many ways.
Congressman Lyman has been using

to Ihis city the Council Hind's cili/.ens
will soon have caught all the fish and
ruined their business. Council BlutVs
iishcrs have gained the reputation of
being wondcriully successful , doubtless
on account of the wonderful scores pub
lished by iishing parties in the daily
papers m their attempts to outdo eacn

no cause for alarm , for there are doubt

The legislative visiling commilleo
which reccnlly looked over the institu
tion for the deaf and dumb hero , seemed
satisfied with the management and the
work being done. It was understood
that one of the members of the committee
was not friendly to the management , but
there seemed to bo nothing for him to
criticise. Since Ihelr return to DPS
Moines , Mr. Teale , one of the commillo
from the house , reported lhat they had
done their duly , but asked leave lo re
visit the institution us grave charges bad
come to the knowledge of the committee
since their return to DCS Moiues. What
these charges are , or from whom they
enanato do not appear , but if they are
nothing more Hum the rehash of tlio o
which the mayor of this city and his
hirelings made in order to have .some
thing sensational for ills gasping , dirty
lilllo sheet , they are unworthy Iho alien-
lion of anyone. If there is any responsi
ble maker of any grave charges , there
should not only be an investigali on , but
a thorough , fearless one , and let the
blame , it blame tlicro be. fall on whoever
may bo found amiss. The Itr.i : has no
pets to protect , and will gladly give the
lac-ts as fast as they arc developed , but
it hopes that irresponsible sro sips will
not cause injustice to bo done to any.
The secretary of the state association

made tin inquiry of the olliccrs at the school
about this matter and found It was not cor
rect and that the patents had been iiiisin-
foimed. Here the patents would not ac-
kwwledo the explanation , but went to ic-
pndlatc the superintendent for the sake of
their child so does the cow to her calf. It
has always been the custom at all public
schools lhat the supciintcndents must read
all lullcis befoie disposing of thorn for mails
lor it sometimes becomes necessary
lo stop the possible con\ eying of t'nlse
facts connected with the Institutions.
For Instance , one girl had a letter to wiito to
her dear mother , and among other things slio
wrote , " 1 am very sick , " which would badly
worry her mother. It called the attention of
the siipeiiiitendent and lie was lo sec if she
was very sick. Ho Inquired her about it. to
which she replied , "only the headache. "
Then the letter was shown her to correct ft.

Sewer Ditch S ( | ahl > Ic ,
The city council has got into a tangle
over the sewer dlleh. In fact Iho enter-
prlso has been aUemlcd by confusion
since its ineiplcnoy , The work of dig
ging the ditch was commenced at the
wrong end. No outlet was given it and
the city lias had to pay almost as much to
clear out the fill , doing the work over , as
it would have taken in the first place to
provide an adcqualo oullct. Now that it
is proposed lo go ahead and cut through
below the city limits , thus affording the
necessary outlet , the contract for doing
the work Is claimed by Mitchell Vincent
ntSll cents a yard , while others propose
to cut it through for 17 cents. If Mr.
Vincent is not allowed to go ahead with
the work , ho threatens lo sue for dam
ages and take other legal stops to protect
Ins rights. 11 the council allows him to
go ahead and pays him this additional
sum , above other bidders , then the tax
payers will make it decidedly unpleasant
for the aldermen , and charge them with
jobbery and extravagance. The aldeiv
men claim that it baa not been their un
derstanding that Mr , Vincent had the
contract for thu work , and tlioy do not
now so const run the contract , which was
made by the nniviniii council. The city
attorney and city engineer report Iho
contrary. The eit.i.s . not iu very good
shape , then-joro , to litigate Vincent's
There is great need that some outlet
should bo given the ditch. Thcrels great
dautrer in case of thu snow going oil rai-
idly , with rains , that much flooding wil
result. The residents of the exposed dis
Irlcts have been very patient , and have
lived on promises for a long time. The
iccc sity for some notion atoneoisgrcat.
It is proposed by some , and this meels
\illi favor by a number of Ihc aldermen ,
hat Iho oily shall not let the contract to
my ono , but rejecting all bids and
guoring Mr. Vincent's claim , shall go
ahead it elf , putting on a force under
the charge of the street supervisor , Mid
lig n temporary outlet , it is suggested
hat a. bill can be passed the present
egislnturc conferring upon the connlv
he right to make appropriations forsucli
waterways , Iho outlet boinc outside of
the city limits. Tt is liioitght that if the
eoiinly had such authority it miglit help
mt of the dilemma. Such a bill was pro-
settled at the lasl legislaluro. but too late
: o bo passed. While the temporary out-
et would meet the present emergency ,
iml cost but a few hundred dollars , this
jill could bo passed and further action
taken more leisurely.
Unlit Weight Talk.
"You're all the time giving it to us
sporting men , and claiming we are rob-
jing people and all that kind of stuff.
Why don't you give it lo the coal men ?
i'hcre are some of them who are doing
uorc dead robbery than any of us
Thn Br.i : man informed the Inquirer
hat light weight jokes on the coal men
mil got worn out and were no longer
cad wllh inlorcsl , bill lie went on :
" 1 tell you how Pvo lixed them. I got
i bin made which holds just a ton , no
nore , no less. When I order u ton of
coal I can come pretty near telling
whether 1 get 2,000 pounds or 1,500. I
lon't have to have it weighed again.
Two or tlireo times I Jmvo found the ton
i mighty little one , and have made a
roar. The next time she would come
jang ui ) full. I was lolling about it one
night lately , and some fellows in the
crowd were listening There wore in the
two expressmen. Ono of them
spoke U ) ) and says ho : 'I was sent after
some coal by ono fellow. I know just
low much coal my wagon box would
mid , and I tumbled to it that the weight
was a little light , but just as 1 was about
to roar the lollow banded mo a good
jigar audit quarter , and 1 said nothing.
L don't know what lie did it for , but my
suspicious are strong. ' Then the
other expressman spoke im , and
said the same follow had given
liim a cigar mid a quarter oneo
when he went after COR ! for a customer.
lie look it , as ho thought tiie fellow
wanted to reward him for throwing the
trade lo his yards. Of course ho didn't
dream it was to make him keep still about
short weights , oh no ! and then ho roared.
I tell you it is time you let up on sporting
men and gave attention to some of these
other fellows. "
Whatever foundation there may be for
suspicious of light weights , there is
more or loss uncertainly loll by many.
It would bo a great card for some coal
dealer to boldly come to the front and
advertise to have all orders weighed on
whatever scale thu customer should se
lect , and that every customer , whether so
inclined or not , must name some other
scale than those in the yards. Such an
oiler , if carried out , would cause the
dealer to have a big trade. There are
many who have u feeling of distrust ,
perhaps wrongfully , but yet they have it ,
and the dealer making snob an arrange
ment would draw to him a great many of
these distrustful ones who do not like to
make their fears and suspicions known ,
fearing to do injustice to some honest
man or needlessly insult some dealer to
whom they are friendly.
At the last session of the legislature a
despcralo attempt 'was made to cause
[ he supreme court to be centered in DCS
Moines , that city seeming to be ambi
tious to monopoli/.o all the good things
of this life. That attempt was defeated ,
jut DCS Moiues does not seem to be con-
: enl , and a renewal of the light is prom
ised al tins session. Senator Robinson
lias introduced a bill requiring all terms
of Hie supreme court to bo hold at the
seat of government after July 4 ; provides
for five terms each year , commencing on
the second Tuesdays of January , March ,
May , September and November ; requires
the court to remain in session until the
opinions arc agreed upon in all cases
submitted at cacli session ; provides tiiat
all cases pending in the term now pro
vided for Council Bluffs , Davenport and
Dubuqiic , when this act goes into ctfect
shall bo transferred to IJes Moines , and
provides for bailiffs for the court.
It is high time that , Council Bluffs \yoko
up , and went lo work lo defeat this al-
lempttohave the supreme court taken
away. Thete should be some immediate
action taken , and if Iho ] > lans adopted at
the last session are as faithfully carried
out , Hie attempt can bo dofeated.
Too Much of a Traveling Man.
A traveling man named Harry Wall-
bridge , who has been on Ihc road for L.
Kirscht & Co. , the wholesale grocers , is
wauled. The house has not heard from
him directly for several days , and the re
ports received from other sources do not
add to his reputation for honesty. It is
said that he has been collecting for the
house and forgetting to report or remit
until the balance against him amounts to
several hundred dollars. Ho has been
traveling in Iowa for this firm since last
September. He had tv wife in Omaha ,
but she is said lo have disappeared with
him. Omaha detectives have been sent
out on his track , ar.il other representa
tives of the house have been going over
the road Investigating his dealings with
customers. His grip was loft at Missouri
Valley and a letter sent back asking that
it 1)0 ) forwarded to a fictitious address in
Chicago. From this it is supposed that
lie went eastward. The grip was gripped
by the honso before it was forwarded ,
and the contents. Including papers and
accounts , were taken possession of by the
house , and considerable light thrown

amount of his shortage is not o.\aeiTy

first lime that the young man has done
business in this way , and that he is
wauled elsewhere ns badly as ho is
wauled hero ,
Don't 1'roposo to Stand It.
The financial troubles into which Cocku
& Morgan have been lately plunged have
virtually broken I hem up In business ,
Their creditors bavo attached all their
stock , garnisliced nil the insurance
money , and loft the firm without any
thing. The announcement was made a
day or two ago that thuy hud made an as
signment to Phil Armour , but before ho
accepted and qualified the firm changed
their mind , and the assignment was yes
terday revoked , They have secured Mr ,
Jacob Sims as their attorney , and now
propose to light. They claim that they
have a stock of $10,000 , and that their
habililics will not exceed $12,000. They
do not propose to have this stock sacri
ficed to pay elf debts which they could
have met if given a chance. If such sac
rifice is made they propose to seek dam
ages against those who thus force them
to the wall. They claiin lhat there was
no good ground for attaching their block ,
ami in due time will commence action
for damages. Such seems Iho policy they
have now decided upon ,
