Walker lias at his oflice a show ing of pebbles picked up on the Manawa beach. They arc interesting siieeimcns nnd .show the nature of the beach to be as line as any in the west. The cleaning of Main street makes a marked improvement in that thorough fare. While DCS Moincs is groaning un der its burden of mud , Council Hlulls is getting cleaned up nicely. I.cnvo to wed was yesterday granted to J. M. Phillips , of Ncola , and Mary E. Johnson ; also to Sidney Armstrong , of Sonoma county , California , and Alice C. Browne ! ! , of Kirksville , Mo. "Chicago Hill , " with his complete out fit for cleaning chimneys , i.s again here. Many a dollar of loss by lire could be envcd by natroni/ing him. Orders can bo left at DoVol's or at the poslollice. Arrangements are being made to let the contract for the Broad way wagon bridge by the 20th of April , and the dirt will commence living by the 1st of May. This will be a quick start for s > o large an enterprise. The stock of the Manawa railway is being rapidly taken and there seems no doubt now b ut that the enterprise will soon commence , and be pushed to a speedy completion. The old lady yesterday acknowledged the receipt ofa bottle of mineral water and was so exhilarated by it that she managed yesterday to get up all of four columns of telegraphic news. The old lady is getting frisky. Robert Iluntington now wears one of the handsomest gold headed canes in the city. It is the gitt of his wifo.whoso wish is joined in by many friends , that the cane may wear for years , and that ho may live to wear it out. There is a move on foot to secure the appointment of a gas inspector. Council 1lull's ! submits more good naturcdly to a big price for'cheap gas than any city in the country. It seems that bomesort ofa move should bo made to secure better light at less cost. City Poll Tax Collector Heckman will soon begin his rounds. Last year ho gathered in inoro than any previous col lector , and this year ho promises to beat oven that record. Those liable might as well come down gracefully and at once. The council having decided on a grade for lower Broadway , the permanent im provements of filling , parking , curbing and paving will proceed as rapidly as possible. With Broadway paved clear to the new wagon bridge at the river , this will bo a great thoroughfare , Judge Thornell is expected to be here Saturday , but ho will probably take no stops in the saloon injunction cases. The decision of questions already submitted to the supreme court will probably bo waited for , as a guide to his rulings in similar questions arising here. The Stuart dramatic company is drawing light houses. With a change of programme every evening and with pop ular prices , it seems that the company should have largo audiences. The com pany is of light weight , but of much more merit than most of the companies who play for the low prices. "Who said Council Bluffs was dull ? " asked Oscar Kiplingcr. "Talk about Council Binds not having sidewalks. I've just got back from Quincy there isn't a loot of paving in the whole city could'nt sec anything going on. It was the same way nt Burlington. 1 toll you I came back pretty well satisfied witii the way Council Blnfl's ifl going along. " The city council is taking the initiatory steps for a largo amount of street im provements. Fifth street will get its eowcr ( Ida season , Mynster street from Main to-Eighth street will be paved and parked , together with the cross streets to Broadway. Glen avenue will bo paved from Broadway to the roservoir.andWash- ington avenue from First , to Second street. Fourth street is also preparing for paving this season. The city is wide awake this year sure. The city marshal has been instructed to have the property owners clear up the nlloys without delay. In case of a fail ure so to do ho is to got the alloys cleaned and the costs taxed up. There should bo no delay in this matter. The city should nlso inaugurate a system of garbage and ash collections , so that property owners could arrange places of deposit for such matter and have them cleaned out at itatcd intervals by trams employed con- itautly for that purpose.

POLICE COURT DOINGS Several Worthy Young Democrats Get a Job WclKliInc Mnllo Numerous Improvements Jnst n Scorch. Testing Prolclit Car Couplers. An important and interesting test of freight car couplers is to be made on the Chicago , Burlington & Quincy road next Monday. One of the intricate problems of railway service is that of the slack on freight car couplers. It is a subject about which there has been much speculation and many of the prominent railway men of the country liave reached the conclusion that the necessity for the slack or looseness is all imaginary. Present Adams.of the Union Pacilic , a few years ago announced it as his opinion that a Ircight engine can pull out as heavy a train without a slack us with it. Now the Chicago , Burling ton & Quincy company is to make a practical test upon the matter. Next Mommy a freight train will start from Burlington with as many rars as tire engine can pull , the ca'-s ' being fur nished with couplers that lit tight like those on passenger trains and do not allow the variation in distance between cars. Commissioner Collin , on account of his study of tins question , has beeiHn- vited to accompany mid assist in mauing a thorough test. The train goes the lirst day to Crcston and the second to Council Blull's , and then a train under exactly the same circtiinstances , except with the couplers now in use , will bo run over the oad and comparisons bo made. It will rove an important test. The 1'ollco I'icUlims. "What is your business , Mr. Shop- erd ? " "I'm a farmer , your honor , and no va grant not a bit of it. " "Where is your farm ?

" "Y'-s ; you can work on the streets for ten days and you can have all the bread nnd water you want three times a day. " Tint beam of gratitude vanished. The two young men , Roper and Peter son , who travel as a pair , causing the po- "ice much trouble , have just been re- eased from jail , where they were held for bavins been enticing some giddy girls away from their homes. The boys seem to be still in trouble , however. Hoper - per was arrested for being drunk , for disturbing the peace , and for using pro- funcn language in public places. He in sisted that he could prove that the police " : iad made a mistake , and the case was aid over until to-day. A short time ago Judge Aylcsworth sent to ono af the reformatory institu tions of the state a girl of only sixteen , whose parents could not keep her under control. Now comes a letter from the girl urging Peterson to make some pro vision for her , and to share with her the trouble into which she linds herself plunged from associating with him. He denies that he is responsible for her con dition , but ho has been making such a reputation for himself that charges stick easily. Mrs. Jones and Mrs. White arc neigh bors. Mrs. White has scratching poultry nnd Mrs , Jones has rose bushes. The rose bushes have been getting the worst of it. Mrs , Jones also dislikes the odor arising from Mrs. White's hog pen. Judge Aylcsworth had a forenoon of hens , rose bushes and hogs. Ho finally dismissed the complaints and counter ir ritants , but Mrs. White , who is a Ihtlo deaf , and did not hoar tlio ruling of the court , kept up her talk until the judge's dinner hour had passed by an hour. It was a great single handed game of talk , and the judge was so weary that ho con- eluded to take a rest at Colfax. Ho will while away a few days there drinking mineral water nnd codifying the city or dinances. City Attorney Holmes wil1 join him there Sunday. I hereby give notice to all concerned not to trust my wife on my account after this date , as 1 will pay no bills of her contracting. FRANK Boi/wur.L , Council Bluffs , Maruh'Jlst 1837.

On Wednesday of next week the post oflice department begins a systematic weighing of all the mails on each of the railway lines of the country , as a basis o new contracts witli the railroad com panics for the next four years. The weighing is to continue live weeks , and every pound of mail received and deliv ered at each station is accurately weighed and recorded. This service requires a large number of extra men , tlfty being required in Iowa. The following are the appointments to weigh tlus mails here : C. A.

SHARP WIR TAPPERS. low They Manipulated the Markets in Three .Southern Cities. va Mr. Sid Pholan of the Gate City cotton exchange hasioturned trom Birmingham where he has just concluded a tussle with Lho wire-tappers , savs an Atlanta , Ga. , lispatch to the St. Louis Globe-Demo crat : "It was the sharpest trick in wire-tap ping ever perpetrated , I suppose , " said Mr. Plielan to-day. As his experience with the market ma nipulators cost him about $10,000 , Mr. Phelan in.-iy bo considered an authority on the subject. Mr. Phelan has an exchange in Mont gomery and another in Birmingham , be sides his exchange in Atlanta , and the market quotations are sent from Atlanta via Montgomery to Birmingham , 'each exchange receiving the news at the same time. Now if the wire over which the news to an exchange is passing be tapped the quotations can bo manipulated and trades can be made in the exchange to suit the wire-tappers. Being in posses sion of the line , the wire-tappers can send the market either up or down. "About two months ago , " said Mr. Phelan , "the wir6 leading to the Birming ham exchange was tupped somewhere in side the limits of Birmingham with mar velous success , and the manipulators very soon struck us for $18,000 , though 1 had to pay only $8,000 of that amount. When the manipulators got possession of the wire over which we were receiving tiic quotations , they were in a position to run prices cither up or down by simply mutilating the quotations. For instance , when Louisville and Nashville were really 07j , the fellows in possession of wire would send it in at 0 , > i , and their representatives on the lloor of the ex change would buy at that ligure. Then they would quote the stock at 07a de cided rise and close out , sticking the ex change for the diiferenco. Why , they had a dead sure thing , as they were hxing their buying and selling price , and we were dancing to tho.r music. "When the manager of the Binning' ham exchange had his suspicions aroused ho did what we called asking for a veri fication. Tin ; request had to go to New York , and the quotation had to comeback back signed by the manager of the Gold nnd Stock Telegraph company. Well , the request for a verification was sent , and in about twenty minutes the able manipulator called up the exchange and very kindly told us the quotation was 'O K , ' and signed their mutil-iting selves 'Dcaly , ' which was just the way the veri fication would have been signed had il really come from New \ork. They hat ! such complete possession ot the quota tions that wo could not get the correct figures from our other exchanges except by mail. As soon as the quotations foi Atlanta were compared with the quota tions in Birmingham the fraud was shown beyond the possibility of a doubt and in settling I refused to pay $10,000 ot the ill-gotten profits. "Dcaly says ho did not send the verification cation which was palmed oil'on us as coming from him. The wires were tapped on the lirst day of this montham they got us for about fl.OOQ , which was settled by arbitration to-day on the pay ment of about $1,000. " " \Vastho \ thing ordered the same as before * " "No , the quotations were notnnitilatct but they were taken oil' and hold back until trades could bo made on the figures in poasesssion of the wire tappers. The tapping was done with an invisible wire and when on the morning of the 1st wo asked Montgomery the time of day the question was taken oil' by the wire tap pers , who replied , Instead of giving us the true time , they made us sot our clock twelve minutes slow. As the quotations came in then the wire tappers tool : them oil' . In that way they saw the quotations twelve minutes before they were reccivei in the exchange , and could trade with at absolute knowledge of which way the markets was going. Well.Jwe sohf 4,00 ( barrels of pork at ) * 17.r > 0 per barrel , am it rose to $18 10 in about ten minutes That was a very lively market , but thu only thing wrong was the delay in receiv ing. At 10:17 : somebody signing himsel Montgomery asked Jirnun < rham wha time it was and our operator replied 'Why , man , you jmt gave the time a few minutes ago , ' to which the reply came 'Oh. ' this d d clock has stopped 1' ' "Thtj tapping of the wire was oviden to us then. ' 1 ho pork buyers held on am closet ! at 118.50.

It cost us about $1,000. We lost by the two tappings 110,000. The vast stretch of wire over which the news comes to us re quires a hundred cells in Birmingham for its supply of electricity. If , when the wire was tapped , they had done nothinc to oll'sot their lack of wire , the Hood of electricity would have sent a streak of lire into the exchange and the instru ment would have worked like a sledge hammer. Wo will guard against wire tapping in future by puling in a set of quadruple instruments , which will sup ply too much electricity for wire tappers to manipulate.
