"Why don't you stir ap the Tenth
nvcnuosclionioi" asked one of the busi
ness men. "Tho people do not realize
how Important a move that Is , If the
Union Pacific is allowed to tnovo up
Tun 1,1 1 avenue it means for Council Bluffs
a union depot and other important en
terprises , -which will do more to help this
city than the new wagon bridge even.
There are a good many moves on foot ,
which I know will help this city if this
starter is made. The shippers and
wholesale houses all know it , and they
have signed a petition asking the council
to grant the right of way. Such a peti
tion , representing the unanimous wish of
the Council Bluffs wholesale trade , should
bo complied with , it seems to mo. They
realize that it me. ins a great deal to
Council Bluffs , and they surely know
what will help the city , and are as
anxious fbr the city's interests as any
class of men , even tlio aldermen , If this
ricfitof way is granted a union depot
will bo secured. "
"Tho only thing I object to it for. " spoke
up a workingman , "is that it damages
some property owned by men who cannot
afford to stand it. It may bo a big move
lor the city , but n few men ought not to
stand all the pinch to get it. Let the
question of damages bo settled so that
everyone of ihcso shall bo sure to get just
what is fair , without being obliged to go
to law , for some of these are too poor to
law it against a big corportion. "
" don't for the
"I see any reason having
tracks run east of Main street. They say *
it is so that the Union Pacific can get dirt
from the bluffs to make their approaches
with. If that is the case then let them
agree to lay only temporary tracks , and
agree to talco them up next spring. The
brldgcx is to bo done in March , and then
they won't need this part of the avenue
any longer. "
"I'll toll you ono thing sure , " said a
wholesale agricultural implement dealer ,
"if this does not take place , I don't mean
this in any bulldozing sense , but as a
fact , tlio agricultural implement busi
ness will all bo over to Omaha inside of
eighteen months. That will be just the
effect if the council sits down on this
movo. The houses on lower Main street
do a business of three or four million
dollars a year. Council Bluffs cannot
afford to lese this.butit surely will unless
this Tenth avenue plan works. You can
sot that down as u certainty. If tlio
council refuses to grant the ayenuo and
the implement business is forced .to move
across the river , it will be a bad blow to
the city , and the aldermen who are now
unfavorable to the plan will have
hard work to square themselves with the
people if they succeo in stopping the
move and the wholesale houses move
across the river. "
"It seems pretty evident that it will bo
killed , though , " remarked a retail mer
chant. "I understand Aldermen Dan-
forth , Keller and Hammer are dead sot
against it' The trouble seems io bo with
this towni that when amove is made in
ono part of the city , the other sections
fight it and kill it. Alderman Danforth
has property interests 'which ho fears
might bo hurt if the Broadway dummy
depot was moved. As alderman at large
ho represents all wards. Alderman
Keller and Hammer represent wards
which naturally fight the improvement
of the southern part of the city , and they
claim that their constituency object to
the move and that in opposing it they
represent the will of their wards. Those
thrco can kill the ordinance , and they
will bo quite certain to do so. "

The Governor Speaks.
Governor Larrabeo aadressod a good
sized audience in Tamplo hall last oven-
ing. The governor is an able rcasoner ,
but differs in style very materially from
the average political speaker , Ho might
very appropriately have opened thf-
ing by saying , "Come now
° arenti0vafonjV. . " There
, , - was ap
0ftt | on h,8 , parl t ( )
, -opular prejudices , or to create n
laugh , though no was earnest and em
phatic in his statements , and there was
a vein ot humor running through his
remarks. Ho mot the churgos made by
the democrats , and mot them fairly
and squarely. Ono of the principal of
those charges is that the republicans
have expended largo sums of money and
have nothing to show for it in Iowa. Ho
admitted the expend ! turo of such sums
as could bo raised by a two mills tax.
But showed that this state now Inn as
fine public buildings as any state in the
union , and the unfortunates in this state
were well provided for , while the state
debt per capita Is not so largo us when
the democrats were in power here , and
they loft no public buildings except ono
little old capltol ut Iowa City , and a little
old tumbla-down prison at Ft. Madison.
Anotlier.c.hurgo was that the republi
cans promised in their platform , but raado
no attempt to perform. Ho requested
that if any believed this charge they
would take the republican platforms of the
past thirty yeara and compare thomwith
the statute Looks and sco it any promise
had not been fultillud. Ho quoted from
thu lat > t platform to prove the assertion ,
lift also quoted from the democratic
platform. Ho said the very first idea ,
and from n democratic standpoint the
most Important one , was oppressed In
the first planfc , which demanded that
the prohibitory law be repealed , and the
privilege bo granted to open a saloon 'at
every cros * road , The second demand
was for pure whisky , yet at the last ses
sion the democrats failed to introduce
nny bill to prevent the adulteration of
whisky. They wanted pure whisky if
they could get it , but must have Whisky
any way. Ho argued at some lengthen
on the tariff question , and proved that
protective tarifl meant better wages for
the working clashes , hotter prices for the
manufacturer , and bolter markets for
The audience paid close attention from
beginning to end , and at nn early hour
dispersed quietly , talking nnd thinking
about what they had heard.

"You have no idea how many women
want their husbands watched , " said a lo
cal detective to the BEK man. "That
woman that just wont out was hero on
that very sort of business. She told mo
a long story of her suspicions about her
husband , and o fibred to pay mo fifty dollars
lars if I would locate the woman on
whom her husband was bestowing his
affections , and get the proof nf his infi
delity. Before I got through talking
with her I lound that she wanted to pay
mo only $25 in cash , nnd the other ? 25
well , I'was satisfied that she was as bad
as slio thought her husband was , She
needed watching if either of them did.
Hero she was asking mo to watch her
husband , for slio didn't want to have him
doing the very sort of thing which she
was up to. Strange world , this. I won't
take such n job , but there's more such
cases than you have any idea of , and
right in Council Bluffs , too. "

Dudes "Dono Up" by Dctnpscy.
At the witching hour , when milkmen'
yawn , says a recimt number of the San
Francisco Chronicle , Jack Dempsey , the
pugilistic champion , was chatting with a
friend on Golden Gate avenue , while they
were about to part for their respective
homos. Presently four dudishly attired
young fellows who had evidently been
paying their respects to Bacchus , came
along and halted in front of Dempsey
and his companion. The revelers appar
ently mistook the mild-mannorod ana in-
oflensiyo looking little fighter for an old
enemy in the police department , for
ono of them ambled up to Jack ,
button-holed him and whispered
audibly in his car : "So you are ono of
these alleged thief-catchers , eh ? A sort
of n detective , as it woro. You think
you'rn u second Vidocq , but say you are
no good. " The other three chimed in with
loud indorsements of their leader's
caustic remarks , while Dempsey drew
back and replied , good nuturedly , but in
a tone that had n business ilug about it :
"Gdntlcracn. my friend and myself are
having a private conversation with
each other ; so please do not disturb us.
Knowing that you are mistaken in the per
son. I take no offense nt what you have
said ; but if you are the gentlemen
I take you to be , you will go
away and leave us alone , Wo would
not interrupt you like this. " "Oh ,
chestnut , " responded the dude spokes
man , ' 'you can't crawl out of it so easy
as that. Wo know you and show our
utter contempt for you In this way. " With
this the dude gave Dempsey u , stinging
open-handed blow actoss the loft ear ,

for Dempsey kept iv detaining hand on
him and thrashed him so severely that
society will bo deprived of his presence
for some time to como. Having re
lented somewhat by this time , Jack let
the fourth man off with a parting kick
beneath his coat tails , which accelerated
his speed to the other side of thu street in
u manner wonderful to behold , For a
few moments quiet reigned supreme , and
then the astonished duties collected them
selves together at a safe distance nnd
held ti council of war. The verdict was
unanimous that they had mistaken their
man , and they were about to worn ! their
sorrowful ways homeward when Demp-
soy's friend approached with a flag of
truce nnd added despair to their already
great misery by informing them with a
malicious smile who it was they had en
countered , The young men are well
known both in society and about town ,
and two of them are prominent mem

Chicago Mail : S. M. Nickerson has
I for nearly ton years controlled the First
National , and is so many times over a
millionaire that ho does not know what
to do with all his funds. Just before the
war , however , ho was not only not n mil
lionaire , but was racing his bad lu'ok as
the keeper of a general store down in
Florida. Ho came north without any
money , and was taken by Crosby , his
brother-in-law , into a distillery ho
was running over on the north
side. Horace White , of the Tribune ,
was then at Washincton , and Clerk
of the committee on ways and means ,
nnd ho learned first of all of the proposed
internal revenue tax on whiskey. In a
whiskey pool that was soon after made
up at Chicago by Horace White's ac
quaintances , White himself , 8. M. Nick
erson , Crosby of opera honso tame , as
well as some others , all had good sued
interests. That pool mtidol whiskey and
stored it until , when that $1 nnr gallon

Then Nickcrsoh bought out President

The Tall Tower of Paris.
A dispute has arisen as to tlio height of
the iron tower which is to bo the feature
of the Paris exposition of 1889 , It was
originally proposed to run it up 1,500
I feet , but it Is objected that it would dwarf
' every other structure in Paris' . A test is
to bo raado by sending up a captive balloon
I to tlio proposed height and suspending
. therefrom four cables , which will repre
sent tlio four edges of the tower , Hags
being affixed to mark the positions of the
several stories , All the estimates for the
construction have just boon completed.
The cost is to amount to 7,600,000 francs ,
the state contributinir 1.500,000 , francs and
the contractors furnishing the remaining
0,000,000 francs , in return for which they
are to have the revenue derived from the
tower for the next twenty years.
