ble , and w6rk in earnest is to commence
A Cbanco For Reform.
The discovery made in regard to the
concrete curbings seems not to bo a new
one. Another well known and responsi
ble citizen says that ho found that the
contractors who put the curbing in along
his property last year did not use the
amount of cement which the contract
called for. Instead of putting one-third
ce'mont to two-third ? sand , there was not
more than one-fifth cement. Ho saw
them put six buokcts of sand to ono of
cement. When it came to his assessment
ho entered a protest , but found that it
was of no avail. The assessment had
to bo paid , or it would be as a Hen upon
the property. It seems that
this sort of procedure has been
going ono moro than has been realized.
Many begin to wonder now how it hap
pens that the otliclals whoso business it
is to look after contracts huvo not kept
bettor watch. Tiio city engineer has
had moro than he could attend to and
has had little time to devote to standing
by and watching the men as they mixed
sand and cement for curbing. Such is
his defense. On the other hand the claim
is made that ho always employs such
help as is necessary tor his department
without asking the council , and the
council cheerfully pays the bills. If ho
needed another man tor the purpose ol
supervising the curbing , one coma have
boon had at little expense. There is said
to have been a looseness about contracts
also , and it is claimed that some work
has been done for the city without the
contracts being signed or bonds given.

Railroad Improvement * .
Few people , residents of Council Bluffs
or vicinity , have the least idea of tbo
amount of work done by the Union Fa *
eifio railroad company in Council Bluffs
the past year or HO.
Mnny miles of side tracks have been
put in , and au immense amount of im
provements have been laid out with a
view of facilitating the handling of
not only Iho increasing freight busi
ness , but also that of the passenger
The Missouri river bridge has been en
tirely rebuilt , the widening of the approach
preach to the bridge on this side of the
river , and laying of a double track direct
to the passenger transfer , known as the
Union depot ; the building of some ten
or twelve bridges over Spoon lake ,
and many other improvements all go to
show that it is the intention of this cor
poration to remove to this city a very
large portion of the business heretofore
confined not alone to the Omaha yards ,
but to their shops in that city.
The Improvements already completed ,
as well as those in course of construc
tion , show their new yards as they may
very properly be termed , to bo the most
extensive railroad yards in the west
\VorK is being pushed vigorously on a
number of improvements which will
further facilitate the business , it is no
doubt the intention to make up all west
bound freight trains in these new yards.
Numerous tracks are now being put
in for this purpose , and
with the making up of the
passenger trains , which hits been entirely
removed to this city , Council Blufls will
after the twenty odd years existence of
the Union Pacific railroad linally become
the terminus of this great trunk line in
fact , as well as in name.
The now passenger-coach yards are
now in good working order , although
several now buildings are contemplated ,
as well as the completion of a score of
minor details which go to make a well
regulated passenger-coach yard.
The old "dummy" track has been
straightened from the junction switch ,
where the passenger and freight tracks
separate , up to the passenger depot.
This increased the room for the pas
senger-coach yards , which are
located between the dummy track
und those on which start the passenger
trains that run into the west end of tlio
passenger depot. They arc large and
admit of a large increase in business.
Beginning % t the brick building known
as the land ollice immediately west of
the passenger depot there is being con
structed a building in which to clean the
cushions , carpets , etc. , of these passenger
coaches. It will be jointly occupied with
material used by the truck repairers.
In the next building is located the truck
repairers , there being twenty-live men
employed under the foreman , Thomas
Next going west comes the inside trim
ming department in which is located
the glaziers , carpenters , tinners , uphol
sterers , etc.
The coach cleaners consist of forty-five
men under Mr. Flemming , foreman.
A change has been made in the
working of this department since its
removal to this city , it now being done"
under the supervision of the Pullman
The supply department is under J.
King's supervision. Then comes the
boiler , ice , coal and oil houses.
K. C. Howard is clerk of the Pullman
car stores and linen department. It is
from this department that the change of
linen , etc. , in the Pullman curs is made ,
as well as where the conductors and porters
ters begin and end their runs.
That the buffet oars will be put in use
on the Union Pacific road shortly is
proven by the fact that the supplies and
storcsfor th ese cars are already begin
ning to arrive , and are quartered in the
Pullman stores and linen department ,
previous to the establishment of a sep
arate department for these now coaches.
The Pullman company also have a de
partment in which they manufacture and
repair their mattresses , etc. It is in
charge of E. Peterson.
Leaving the improvements about the
passenger ooach yards aud goiug south
to about half way between the freight
ollice and the union elevator is the site
of the new round house.
This now round house is to be a twenty-
stall ono. That is , only twenty stalls
will bo erected for the present , but the
plans show it to be built so as to add
forty stalls whenever it is the desire of
the management , making it then a round
house capable of holding sixty locomo
About sixty workmen arc now em
ployed upon the construction of this
round house. The foundation is being
put in and a large quantity of granite as
well as other material is on the ground.
Large sheds have been constructed for
use by the workmen employed. Derricks
for the hoisting of the granite in position
and everything possible to facilitate the
completion ot the building is ready.
The erection of a largo number of
dwelling houses will shortly bo com
menced in this section of the city , con
veniently located for the use of railroad
men ana others whoso employment will
bo near thcro.
It will bo necessary for train crews
particularly to reside on this side of the
river. It has already boon found very
inconvenient for the largo number of
workmen employed in these now yards
to reside in Omaha , and as soon as houses
can be put up they will no doubt be occu
pied us fust as completed.
THE BOTTOM FACTS.
The Glen Avenue llcnervolr Emptied
Of Water For the Annual Cleaning.
Yesterday morning those who wcro
upon the streets at an early hour looked
in all directions to see where the tire had
been the night before. The gutters wcro
flooded with water as though there had
been a night's work by the lire depart
ment. The mystery was solved by the
fact that the reservoir on Glen avenue , in
which the Waterworks company stores
its big supply , and which gives a head to
the supply , had been emptied for its an
nual clearing. Glen avenue , at the head
of which the reservoir is located ,
is being filled and graded , and
it was found to bo impracticable to
pour forth the water from the reservoir
direct , as it would have washed away
much of this fresh dumped , earth. Tha
four hydrants farther down the avenue
wcro thrown open and the water emptied
through these. It was a Hood indeed ,
and only a small portion of it could got
through the storm sower. The rest went
tearing down the avenue , washing great
gulloys aud making the avenue impassa
ble for vehicles. The water works com
pany wont to work at once with teams
repairing the damage done to the avenue
and rendering it as good as over again.
The reservoir , which is located on the
aide of one of the high bluffs , hat a capac
ity of 4,600.000 gallons. It Is bnok lined.
Tbo water has been allowed to be reduced
by consumption until it barely covered
the top of the pipe from which the water
is drawn , This upiigUt pijw , with a
largo sieve at the top , stands about six
feet above the bottom of the reservoir.
For the protection of the public it is not
best to use any of the six feet of water
covering the bottom of the reservoir , and
what Hews into the supply pipes comes
from above this. It was this quality
of water which was drawn ofl'yesterday ,
amounting to half a million gallons.
This left the bottom plain to view. It
was not a pluasant landscape , as the
earth which had settled on the bottom
was rather moist and devoid of vegeta
tion. It was smooth enough for n lawn
but hardly grassy enough. The mud was
about six Inches deep. For n reservoir
of its size , and for an annual cleaning ,
the showing was ono which will favora
bly compare with any reservoir in the
city. The brick work was found to have
sutlbrcd in a few places by the ice of last
winter , but on the whole wus in good
condition. The settlings are being all
cleaned out , the bricks replaced where
needed , and the reservoir will in a day or
two bo as good as now.
The draining off o.the water left num
erous fish stranded , und a goodly catch
was had , some of them being quite
weighty. Some fresh water clams wore
found. There was an absence of any
sensational finds , such as have been
rumored to be in every metropolitan
reservoir. In fact the disclosure of these
bottom facts was such that those who in
spected the site found their relish nonu
the less keen for the clear natcr fur
nished by the hydrant.

A WOMAN IN LAW.
Alta Arnold Sues Charles Baugham
For Slander and Big Damages
Mrs. Alta Arnold , who has been termed
the sensational witness in the Cross case ,
continues to furnish items of newt ) of a
readable nature. Her testimony in the
murder trial caused more comment than
that of any other witness , as she claimed
to have seen the tragedy , and to have so
seen it that Dr. Cross was the ono
assaulted , and that he acted in self
defense in killing Dr. McKune. Her
testimony on that trial was so near to
that given by Dr. Cross , in almost every
detail corresponding exactly , us to cause
a lively discussion of this important fea
ture of the testimony.
When Drum-MajorCarbec was brought
back here and lodged in jail , Mrs. Arnold
was found to bo the lady who visited him
in jail , which caused some surprise as
Carbeo was supposed to bo almost u
stranger in this city.
Yesterday Mri. Arnold commenced suit
for damages against Charles Baughan , a
well-known citizen whose possessions ,
according to her estimate as stilted in the
petition , amount to about $00,000. She
claims that Baughan , in conversation
with \V. L Biggs , C. Wesley , John J.
Churchill , W. S. Swearingcn and other
prominent citizens , made use of some
scandalous language concerning her
pedigree and her character. She claims
that ho said he would not believe her
under oath , and otherwise assailed her
character. For this she wants if 10.000
Mrs. Arnold has not been without ex
perience in the courts. In the circuit
court , February term , 1884 , she com
menced an action against Seifert lieisc , a
saloon keeper at Crescent , claiming $10-
000 damages , on the ground that the sa
loon man had sold her husband drinks ,
dcspito her notifications that ho must
not do so. She claimed that in the
month of January her husbaud got
drunk at the defendant's saloon , and
while trying to cross a bridge on jus way
homo , fell over and received injuries
which caused his death the following
August. The cose is said to have been
settled by the defendant paying her $250.
Mrs. Arnold is also trying to get a pen
sion on account of the death of her hus
band , and is daily expecting to get some
tidings from her case , as she filed her ap-

A Discovery In the Neighborhood "of
Joseph Some Rich Marble.
The Portland Oregonian says : T. L.
Brophy , formerly of Washoo. where ho
was prominently connected with the
mines for twenty years , but lately of
Warden , Couur d'Alcne , was in town last
week , showing some very fine samples of
ore from the neighborhood of Joseph ,
Wallowa county. The samples include
silver , copper , zinc and tin , aud assay
very highly for surface rock. To these
minerals Mr. Brophy adds another dis
covery , likely to bo particularly valuable
to Portland , namely , white , black and
variegated marble , as pure as ever came
from the celebrated Italian quarries. A
company has been organized at Joseph ,
which has succeeded in getting possession
of the most favorable locations. The
now discovery lies some fifty miles north
west of Pine creek , and is evidently a
continuation of the great Cocur d' Alene
belt. The report comes to vs in perfectly
reliable form. TheOreeonian considers it
of so much importance to Iho future busi
ness interests of Portland that it shall
send a well known and competent expert
to examine the country thoroughly in
the course of two weeks. Tha company
is developing its property by a tunnel
which will strike the ore at such a depth
as to prove its value and permancy. At
present no doubt seems to exist of either.

that medicines which produce violent
effects are unsuited to other than desper

super-potent remedies are calculated to

than reform its irregularities. Among

The ( } tanip Collector * .
Chicago loiter Ocean : The American
Philatelic association concluded the
labors oHts second' annual convention
yesterday afternoon. For three days
Parlors A and 1L , of the Tromont house ,
have been in tiso by the thlrty-fivo dele-
Rates to the convention , and oy as many
more who take an Merest in stamp col
lecting. The personnel of the conven
tion was not that of mcro boys , for while
there were sonin present who are still in
their teens , there wore present middle *
nged and old men , who nrfl interested in
the pleasant and instructive hobby of the
collection and assortment of stamps of
all the nations of the onrth.
The stamp collector takes up the little
square red or yellow paper , and from the
characters on U reads the ideas and his
tory of tbo governments of nations fat
away. The hobby carried on to its full
extent is costly , perhaps , but it is cer
tainly instructive , and the young stamp
collectors delight in a knowledge of the
countries of which they read.
There were only a few delegates pros'
ent in Chicago , but it Is estimated by
them that iu the United States thcro arc
ton journals devoted to the interests oi
the philatelist ; that there are twelve
dealers wnose solo trade is in postage
stampD of the various varieties ; that there
are thirty local philatelic societies ; thai
there arc about 0.000 permanent collectors
of stamps and about 300,000 small col
lector ) at work most of the time , who
begin the work and then drop off again.
This is a largo constituency , and the
delegates rococnized their duties to them ,
The first thing they did yesterday waste
to have their pictures taken in a group.
Then they returned to the hotel and
adopted their reconstructed constitution
and passed resolutions. The first of these
gavb James Chalmers credit as the in
ventor of the adhesive stamp : the second
was a vote of thanks to the Chicago so
ciety and the otlicors and committees.
Then they adjourned to discuss stamps ,
their kinds , values nnd Collections' .
How many varieties of postage stamps
exist is a huge conundrum to even the
collector. More and more varieties turn
up every day. Some differ in the tints ol
paper , some in the tints of ink , some are
pcriorated and some are unporforatcd ;
some have double perforates , some are
gummed and some ungummcd , some are
water-marked and grilled , and so they
goon. In the United States W. C. Van
Delft , of Boston , has a huge collection ,
and it is supposed to bo the largest.
Mr. E. B. Sterling , of Trenton , N. J. .
makes a business of collecting United
States stamps. Ho exhibited a collection
of the latter during the convention ,
whjeh were said to number 0,000 , and
which he values at $5,000. He has five
varieties , different colors , of the $5,000
revenue stamps , which he values at $100
each. The stamp was abolished in 1882.
and now there are no duplicates to his
sot. He has two shades or tints of the
$500 stamps which are worth $50 each.
Ho has proofs and designs of stamps
without end , ono set in eleven different
colors just as submitted by the cnqraver ,
Carpenter , to the government. There is
also a $20 probate of will stamp , which
are said to exist in ten collections only ,
and which are worth $50 each. Mr. Ster
ling has the first , second and third issues
of internal revenue stamps complete , ia-
luding fourto n varieties of stamps
where the mcdalious are up side down.
The shifting of the medalions makes the
fourteen worth $100. Besides fhc internal
revenue stamps , there are about $0,000
proprietary stamps used by manufac
turers of matches , playing cards , etc. , to
pay the tax placed on "these articles dur
ing the war. One of these proprietary
stamps is the Richmond match stamps ,
3c , long and black. Mr. Slerling says
that he has the only one in existence , and
that it is worth $100.
The most costly , or the rarest stamp in
the world is said to" be the 1-pcnny red
and 2-penny blue of Mauritius. Only
two of each kind are said to bo in exist
ence , and ono of the Rothschilds is said
to have paid $4,300 for ono set.
