Is It a Genuine Veto ?
There is a funny game of now you see
it , and now yon don't going on about the
ollico of mayor of the city. Mayor
Vaiichan , whoso term is about to expire
by the will of the people and by kindly
providence , sent his resignation to the
newspaper oflices , as n free advertisement
of some book that he is about to publish ,
and which is going to take all his time.
Tlio council at ite last meeting made in
quiry as to whether any such document
hud been tiled with the clerk , and conlu
get no information of its existence ,
Further than what they had seen in the
papers. Alderman Mynster , as president
of the council , has been recognized as
the acting mayor , until Colonel Chap
man takes Iiis seat. Mayor Vaughan lett
foi Now York the tirst ot tlio week. Now
after resigning tlio ollico of mayor , and a
mayor temporarily serving , and : i now
mayor about to come in , another remarkable
able- document is made
- public , purport
ing to bo a veto filed yesterday with the
city clerk , alleging lo bo signed by "W.
U. Vaughan , mayor , mayor's oflice ,
Council Bluffs , March 9 , 1880. " This al
leged veto is on tlio ordinance passed
Monday night by the council making tlio
salary of the city engineer $1,250 , and
that of the city attorney a like amount ,
instead of $1,000 as before.
"Tho little mayor of my city" seems
to be capable of doing raany tilings , but
tliis is bis latest double act sensation.
The ground sot up for the alleged veto
is that it is a dangerous precedent to es
tablish. Strange enough the veto does
not contain anything about his now book.
nor about tlio nmonnt of paving and
fitrcol lilling which lias been done while
hu has been mayor ; not a word about
how much ho has done for the working-
men. This causes the document to bo
looked on with suspicion , and it can
hardly bo credited as having been ac
tually written by the mayor , his car
marks being so startlingly absent.
A Ilotclicd Job.
The newly-published book alleged to
contain the eity ordinances , compiled and
codified , has boon pretty thoroughly ex-
nmined , and the council , as well as oth
ers who have scon it , sustain the criticisms
made by the UKK. The book contains a
great deal of dead matter , many ordi
nances being printed which are of no sort
of use now , and the matter thrown to
gether , is .stretched out until it takes twice
tlio space that it ought. Thu contract was
with Col. Keatloy to do the work of com-
Dilation and codification for 500 , and
the Glebe to do tlio printing , tlio bill of
thu latter being over $1,000. The council
has justly rejected the book , as not up to
contract. Tlio job was given as a fat
take for the democratic organ , but it
proves to bo rather a loss. The chief
fault is laid at tlio door of Col , Keatloy ,
thu printeiu being supposed to simply
( oIow ) copy , and the compiler being re
sponsible for thu preparing of thu copy
and the reading of proofs. Mr. Itowman
himself frankly admitted to tlio council
that the work was a botch , and seemed
disposed to do anything that was fair in
the matter. Tlio work had cost him over
f 500 already , ami ho wanted to arrange
noino way of getting out of it whole , lie
acknowledged that it was not tlio kind of
n book which the contract called for , anil
was not ona of which ho was proud. Thu
council talked the mutter over Informally
with him , and at last decided to advance
$500 on the agreement that thu Glebe
should go ahead and gut out a book which
conio mi to tlio contract.

Tlic How Over llalshiR Snlnrfcs An
Alleged Veto Tlio Wnlmih
In tlio HlufiH.
ItnlMng City Snlnrlcs.
The attempt to raise tlio salaries of tlio
city attorney and city engineer at the last
meeting of tlio old council called out n
spirited discussion. Tlio previous reso
lution called for tlio preparation of an
ordinance making tlio salary of each of
these oniccrs $1,500 , instead of $1,000.
This ordinance was accordingly pre
sented. There were only live members
of the council present , and it required
tliolr unanimous vote to suspend the rules
for the passage of the ordinance. It was
the last show for passing such an ordi
nance , for with the incoming of the new
ollicors such a raise would bo illegal
during thulr term of ofllce , so that it
meant then or not for two years to come.
Alderman Shugart alone held out against
such a raise. His position was that t
should have been donn before election , it
at all , but that when tlio matter was weeks
ago rcfcircd to a committee it was de
cided not to do anything about it , and
tlio committee did not even report. Now
that men had run for the olllec , and boon
elected , with the understanding that the
salary should be $1,000 , ho did not be
lieve that it was fair to raise tlio salaries ,
although it might legally bo done. The
salaries of the mayor and otlior city
olllecrs was too low , but there was no de
mand for a J also of these , and iie did not
believe it was rijiht to just raise these
two. , ,
The city attorney waxed warm. Ho
know that many of his friends hud voted
for him with the distinct understanding
that the salary should bo increased , and
lie had been given the same assurance
long ago by all tlio aldermen except Mr.
Shugart. There was a great deal more
litigation hero than in DCS Monies , and
yet that city paid ! ? 2100. Council Bluffs
paid less than any city in the state. I hero
had been more work than in any previ
ous year , and the coining year promised a
great deal more. If the council proposed
to help out a depleted treasury by taxing
him several hundred dollars by actually
robbing him of his justeatnings , he could
stand it as well as any one. Ho shonla
stand bv tlio people , out if the council
was gofng to pinch him down to nothing ,
they must take the consequences. Ho
should feel at liberty to resign at any
tinu' , and then tlio city could employ
some attorney and sec what it would
Alderman Shugart oficred to compro
mise by voting for a salary of $1,850.
This was to include tlio services as attor
ney for the Board of Health , which
amounted to about $250 last year , so that
the total would bo about the same as be
fore. Mr. Holmes would not stand this.
Ho didn't want to have any compromise.
Ho would donate the $850 to the church
es if the council wanted to go into that
sort of business. The city engineer's sal
ary should , however , bo made $1,500. It
was an outrage to make it any less.
The ordinance was at last amended seas
as to make tlio salary of each § 1,250 , and
thus it was passed by a unanimous vote.
Tlio city attorney then warned the re
porters not to announce that ho had had
his salary raised. It had not been
raised. For the amount named in the or
dinance the salary amounted to about
what lib received last year , for now ho
had to do all the work for the board of
health , without any of the extra compen
sation which was allowed him last year.
The city engineer's ollico is growing
more and more important yearly , and
there is no doubt that an engineer who
attends to his duties earns much more
than he receives.
The office of eity attorney is also becoming -
coming very laborious , and the salary is
indecdsmall. Alderman Mynster openly
declared that if tlio salary was raised to
$1,500 and he was offered the position he
would not look at it. The salary even
then would not compensate for the loss of
private patronage and the amount of la

Robert Percival Strloltcn.
The startling news spread through the
city yesterday that Robert Poreival had
boon stricken with apoplexy and was
dying. About 11 o'clock in the forenoon
Mr. Pcrcival was in his lawWlice consult
ing with Judge Casady about matters of
business and examining some papers.
Mr. Pcrcival was seated at the table , his
hand resting on his head , when he sud
denly groaned with pain , as if his head
was bursting , and staggering to iiis feet
exclaimed "this isawful. " Judge Casady
helped him to reach a sofa and UH he was
suffering intensely insisted on having
him taken home , but Mr. Porcival said it
would bo over in a few minutes , and a
moment later ho sunk into u comatose
Htato from which there was no arousing.
A carriage was summoned and Mr. Per
cival WHS taken to Ids rooms at the resi
dence of Mrs. Sanders on Eighth street.
Drs. Soybort. Green and Lacy wore im
mediately called in but they pronounced
his case as hopuloss. The examination
showed that a blood vessel in the brain
had been burstcd , and thai the end could
not bo far off. Ho lay in this comatose
condition all the afternoon , while friends
throughout the city wore anxiously in
quiring the latest from his bedside ,
hoping that by some unforeseen change
life might bo spared him. They worn
doomed to disappointment , however , for
at flUO : last night Mr. Porcival passed to
the great beyond , his death being peace
ful and tranquil.
Mr. Piii'cival has been one of the most
prominent attorneys in western Iowa ,
lie was born in Nova Scotia , and had
about reached his throu score years , lie
came to Iowa whun a young man , and
guttled in I'rumont county. He was a car-
pouter by trade , and throughout Ills lifo
lias had a warm bide to those who labor
with thfiir hands. .Ono of his common
remarks has been that it takes more
brains to plane out a railing for a wind
ing btairwav than to hu a lawyer. In his
early years ho taught fcchool in Fremont
county , and there are residing hero now
borne who had tlio prhvlgo ot being his
pupils. Turning his attention to law , he
rapidly trained n high t-tandlng , nnd a
lucrative practice. In politics hu was an

prospect for n victory as the reward of

ROMANCE OF A FORGER.
Richard AV. Vau lin , the Original
Uank Note Forger " \Vlmt licil
to 1HH Downfall.
Now York Letter in Cleveland Leader :
In 1757 a merchant in London by the
name of Bliss advertised for a clerk and
selected from tlio applicants Richard W.
Vaughn , who , after a time , succeeded in
winning the confidence of his employer
to such an extent thattlic clerk was taken
to the merchant's homo nnd made a wel
come visitor. Mr. Bliss hud a young sis
ter with whom Mr. Vaughn immediately
fell in love , and as his application for the
position of brother-in-law was of much
more importance than his former on-j for
a clerkship his past record was carefully
searched and it was found that ho had
mot with a disastrous failure in business
and was consequently a bankrupt , with
many liabilities and unpaid debts. Ho
was told that ho could never bo accepted
as n suitor for the young laity's hand un
til everything ho owed had "boon pidd in
full. Ho seemed discouraged at this de
cision and expressed the opinion that the
task was impossible , but finally returned
to his love's family with tlio happy intel
ligence that he had fallen heir to a largo
property and could more than liquidate
all his debts. Ho showed a number of
bank notes in proof of his assertion and
actually gave Miss Bliss live new twenty-
About tliis time the authorities at the
Bank of England wore much troubled by
the appearance of a few forged notes.
With little difficulty detectives traced the
forgery to Richard Vaughn. He admit
ted his guilt. It was attempted at his
trial to prove ho had not meant to put
them in circulation , but only to win a wife
with them. This defense , however , was
useless , as ho had passed them. He was
found guilty of torgery , which in those
days was a capital offense , and he paid
the pcnaltv of his misdeeds on the scaf
fold. History docs not state what be
came of the girl who was the innocent
Vaughn lias tlio doubtful honor of hav
ing led the way in bank note forgery. At
that time an imitation was a much easier
matter than it is at present , tlio note it

COACHMAN AND DUDE.
High-biro WccliliiiKS Ittlo ! IMfTcr-
cncc Between Mistress and Maid.
Lancaster Examiner : In another col
umn will be found an account of the mar
riage of Mr. Robinson , the coachman of
Mr. William Al. Singerly , of the Philadel
phia Record. After reading we wonder
what difference there is netween this
coachman and tlio usual grooms in high
life. As some one remarked the other
day , it is hard to tell the difference be
tween a sfCOO clerk and an $800 cook in a
dress suit. The dross suit and fashion
are great levelers. Mr. Robinson's col
ored ushers , the bridal veil , the wedding
march , the trip in n palace car , etc. , wo
have heard over and over again. We are
glad to see that tlio Jenkinses of the press
arc paying as much attention to the mar
riage of the coachman as to the dude.
And pray , why not ? A coachman is of
some use in this world. He works for
Ids living and as a laborer is entitled to
our respect. Half the men married in
high life , whoso only claim to social
recognition consist in a fair-sized pocketbook -
book , a dress coat and u diamond , are
never heard ot till they land in a divorce
court. The coachman of Mr. Singerly is
entitled to as much space in a big news
paper as the son of an Astor. Attcr all ,
there is little difference between mistress
and maid. Both will langh till their cor
sets crack over the bonnet of a simple
country girl. But let fashion say that
bonnet is the proper thing and botli mis
tress and maid will grow excited over its
beauties for hours. Their ambition is
the samo. Both are apt to dream of a
coach and fo'nr and a handsome groom ,
witli a dark moustache. So , gentle
maiden and most reverend seignior , read
this account of Mr. Robinson's marriage
nnd learn this lesson that society is
largely a matter of dress coat and that a
lord , parvenu and coachman can bo
equally made great by a reporter'b fancy
and cold type.
AMBITIOUS COLORADOIANS ,

Although Senator "Tom" Bowon's
term does not expire until 1889 , Colorado
politicians a 'c already deeply interested
in the question who shall bo his successor.
A Denver man says : "We can sho\y up
the livlicst lot of millionaires seeking a
scnatorship you over saw anywhere. I
think there must bo a round do/en of
them who are aspirants , not to mention
Bowen him.self , who of course is willing

whole state , but in a light at cross pur-
puso.s the btato if , safe. In the tirst place.
ox-Senator N. P.'IIill ' , who was defeated
by Senator Teller , will scuk an election.
He owns the republican daily paper at
Denver , and is worth several good mil

like to round up his career by another
trip to Washington on public account.
Ex-Governor John L. Routt is in tlio

Tabor , who had u month in the senate ,
would like six years at it. Ho has been
having ups ana downs of fortune , mostly
downs , for some time , but the strike in
the Henrietta mine sot him on ids feet

law of ox-Governor Evans , would like the
place and his father-in-law is trying to
got it for him. H.O is the supreme judge
of the state court , W. S , Jackson , who
is somewhat known as Helen Hunt's hus
band , would bo glad to gut the position
in order to be kn wn for himself. He is
receiver of the P < nver & Rio Grande rail

for the engagement. So is ex-Govornor
Benjamin 11. Ea.on , , ex-Governor Fred

Chilcott , who ser ud the short term when
tlio stnto was udihitlcd , is desirous of try

"Come hcah you Jtfsio gal an1 drink

up yo' gin , were
to n buxom ncgress. at the Union Pacific
depot this morning.
"Foab. do Lawd's sake , Kill King , I'so
dun bin drinkln' gin cbcr sin' wo dun
leave Shecargo. Go way dab , yon brack
coon. Do you'so wantcr got mo
drunk ? " '
The idea of n person .refusing to take a
modest potation of gin was so utterly
preposterous in the eyes of the first
speaker that ho could not utter .1 sound.
Ho eyed the woman contemptuously for
ix few seconds , nnd then sauntered back
to the Union Pacific- car , which was
standing upon the track. The next mo
ment the car window was raised , and a
black head nnd glistening , white teeth
were protuded , ami a clear , tenor voice
trolled out :
"It she drink notcin with me ,
What care 1 her grin to sec. "
"Dat's jess like dat ole Kill King , " said
Josic as she paced to and fro upon the
platform. ' 'He UIIKS I'm stuck on

As she spoke , the woman gave a lurch
tolcownrd which made the engineer of
nn incoming train think think that a dan
ger signal had been displayed upon the
track to dense was the fleeting shadow
cast by the quick movement. A call from
the interior of the car. however , revived
her and she proceeded to join the rest of
the ijarty who were comfortably seated
within. They were four in number add
they were taking advantage of the re
duced rate to visit San Francisco. Whun
a reporter for the KKB approached Bill
King and his wife were busily engaged in
trying to cheat Jo.iio and her husband in
a game of high live. The stakes were
contained in n square black bottle which
hung carelessly ironi the rack above , to
which it was fastened by a string.
" Low. Jaek , lire twenty-two , " ejacu
lated Jc sic suddenly as she reached for
thu black bottle which hung invitingly
near her capacious month. "Dare now ,

and the liquid trickled down her throat
at a rate which would make electricity
blush for shame. "Hab some honey , "
turning to the reporter , "hab some. It
am iiowcrfull gutlo , " again the neck of
the bottle was thrust between her teeth
and the gurgling sound silenced the
throbbing of an adjacent engine.
"Do colored people like gin bettor than
