SEWERS IN COUNCIL BLUFFS ,
Borne of the Difficulties and Bow to
OVERTON PUT UNDER BONDS.
An Officer Bwling the Illver to Catch
1'rlsoncr Colonel Keatlojr Gets
Political I'lum A Ulscour-
Hewers KunnlrtK Up Hill.
llarr.v Hlrkinbinc , of the waterworks
company , is EO exucrioncod nn engineer
that his opinions of the much discussed
sewerage are worthy of consideration.
Ho was naked yesterday by a BEE man
what he thought about the talk there was
concerning sewers being running up
tiill , and being imperfectly constructed ,
"I've heard a good deal about the
scworu not being right , and that in some
places they made them ruu up hill. The
iroubli ) is that nobody can build sewers
n this soil , the way they are built , and
lave them do good servicn for any length
of time ; a brick sewer laid on this soil
ought to rest on plank to keep it trom
settling. I don't care how good the
bricks are. You cannot help getting in
some through which water will liltcr.
After a little , wherever the sewerage
liltcrs through these brick into the soil ,
there will be u settling , and soon you
liavu your sewer curving up nnd down
like n snako. Then the sewer doesn't
carry on" , gets stopped up , and folks
begin talking about the sewer having
been built crookedly and about trying
to makn water ruu up hill and all that. "
"You think , then , that planks should
be Inid and the suwer rest upou these. "
"Yes , with all brick scwcra in this soil.
Then , too , I think that instead of build
ing the sewers round they should bo egg-
shaped , thu small end down. If you stop
to think a minute , you will sec that this
sort of a Bower will clean itself easier. It
gives the narrowest space at the bottom ,
so thht if there is any water running
through the sewer it will huyo How
enough to clean out the sediment. I
should lay the plank first , then build up
the sewer , so as to leave an egg-shaped
channel , and then throw a simple arch
over the top. Then 1 would have the
connections made near the top. As it is
now the connections arc being made
right into the side , about the center. If a
sewer gets over half full , the dirt and
sediment of all sorts washes into thoyo
connections , and stops them up. There
is danger of backwater , too , running into
these connections. If they were put in at
the top or near it , there would not bo
these dltliculties. "
Struggling For a Prisoner.
Two men nt work near the river got
into some sort of an altercation which
ended in one of them , Ira Jonus , shooting
at the other , John Shipcow. The latter
lind an information tiled in Justice
Schurz's court charging Jones with as
sault with intent to kill. Deputy Mar
shal White drove down to the river yes
terday to got Jones. Ho found his man ,
3Ut Jones wanted to got his shoes , which
were in : i boat near by. The otllccr ac
commodated him and Jones , getting into
the boat , proceeded to push from the
more , intending doubtless to make good
Ills escape to the Nebrnsna side. \ \ Into

instant ho was in the water and
After the boat. He rruulo Jones come
back to Iowa , and on landing Mrs. Jones
'nino to the rescues of her beloved iius-
jnnd. Shu waged war on the olliccr with
a piece of fence board , until the officer
pulled his billy , which was soon knocked
out of his hand in the struggle. She got
possession of this , nnd "beforeVhito
could rally had hit him over the head
twice with it. As the others wcro taking
an occasional hand in , too , he pulled his
revolver and road the riot act. The
crowd nuieted down and ho took his
mnn in Ins buggy and brought him up
town. Jones claims that ho did not aim
at Sliipcrow , but that ho fired his revolver
iu the air just to frighten him.

A MUsliiK Partner.
A few months ago there appeared in
this city a stirring young man , appar
ently a Jew , who busied himself in intro
ducing a now carpet cleaning process ,
securing considerable patronage , and
giving fair satisfaction to his customers.
A short thno ago ho bought an interest
in the Council lilufTs laundry , with Amos
Hurg , buying out Burg's partner for
! r00 ! ! , paying only $25 down , and the bal
ance in promises. Ho was to have home
money from the old country by the 1st of
August , and would then settle for the
rest. In the meantime ho drew from the
receipts of the business enough to pay
his board and meet his personal ex
penses. On the 3d of this month Fisher
disappeared suddenly , nnd having not
Ouon seen or heard from since , his part
ner is convinced that ho has skipped out.
Ho ligun-s up that ho is out of pocket
about $150 by his relations with Fisher.
Just before Fisher disappeared there was
a tire at the laundry which did considera
ble damage , nnd which was not covered
by insurance. It is possible that this loss
caused Fisher to decide to seek new past
ures , instead of staying by and helping
meet the loss with his partner.

The funeral of Frcddio Hill , aged
eleven years , son of F. C. Hill , of the
Emukio Hardware company , was held
yesterday afternoon at the family resi
dence. There was a largo gathering ol
sympathizing friends. Rev. Dr. Crofts
olllciatod , and the services were tcudoi
and impressive. The words of cousola
tion were based on the passage of scripture
turo which speaks of the dust returning
to dust , and the spirit to the God whc
gave it. The speaker dwelt upon the
idea that nature seemed ever reaching ur
Its arms to receive the physical remains ,
The dust returned to the dust. It was
equally true that the arms of the loving
Fattier wcro reaching out to receive the
spiritual. The return of the spirit was
no less certain than that of the dust. The
the thoughts of the speaker were , as
usual , clothed in well chosen words. The
tlor l tributes of friends were numerous
and beautiful. Among them were pll
lows of out flowers , one with the words ,
"Our Boy. " The other had upon it i
pet name , "Fritz. "

Tlio Avoca Court.
The establishment of a branch dlstrici
court at Avoca has caused numerous
legal questions to arise. Ono of these I.
an important one. It is whether a judg
ment rendered in the court at Avoca if
duo notice to the public ns a judgment
entered hero. Judge Carson had a cast
recently before him which involved thli
point. Ho decided that a trauscnp
must bo iniiilu out at Avoca nnd sent hen
for record iu order to make the notlci
good. The cleric of the Avoca court hits
been following tljo opposite policy and
holding the opposite opinion. Hereafter ,
under this ruling , m judgement in Avooa
will not be really complcto until a
transcript of it is filed hero.

A Social Purpose.
Wednesday evening there was a happy
gathering of friends nt the homo of Miss
Mnry Dunsizer , on Mynstcr street , in
honor of the Misses Minnie Fihcher , of
DCS Moincs , Miss Kate Shaw , of St. Joe ,
and Kay Smith , of Omaha. About 6
o'clock in the evening they repaired to
the residence of Miss Maggie Hill , on
Fifth avenue , giving her a hnppy sur
prise. Among thn ulnnncra of this sur
prise party , were Misses Mary Danslzcr ,
Louisa Williams and Mr. J. N. Cochran.
The young folks danced till a late hour ,
and the evening close * ! with n season of
conundrums. There were about forty
couples in attendance , eight couples be

A Legal Race.
Yesterday afternoon there was a hot
race between two men , to sec which
could get to the county building first.
One had n quit claim deed , convoying to
his wife several cheap lots in the city , the
consideration being "his love nnd nfFcc-
tion for her , and one dollar in hand paid. "
Ho was rushing for the recorder's oflicc
to get his document filed. The other
man had an attachment ngainst his
property , nnd he was rushing for the
clerk's ollicc. The race was about two
minutes in favor of the man with the nt-
t.ichnicnt , nnd the owner of the lots will
doubtless lind that it has cost him fS.CO
to put on record a public assurance of
the love which he has for his wife.

Washington C. Ford in the Epoch :
There is a comic side to what is called
American assurance , and nowhere is this
comic side more visible than in our at
tempts to build up a foreign trade , hong
schooled to place their trust in congress
ami the homo market , our manufacturers
have scorned to seek proht in outside
markets , and , content with nn artificial
monopoly , they have produced until they
arc rudely awakened to the fact that they
arc in danger ot being drowned in their
own fat , aa the home market , largo as it
is , has not extended so rapidly as the
powers of production.
This schooling is the very worst that
could bo depended upon in competing in
neutral markets with foreign manufac
turers , and the little experience already
had , shows how'different the factors arc
m nn artificial and in n neutral market.
Shut in from foreign competition , the
American manufacturer feared only do
mestic competition , nnd that was slow in
developing ; but when it did come , it
forced him to improve his processes and
utilUo every cost-saving aud laDor-say-
Ing appliance offered. In ipitu of tiU |
he finds ho has rfbt advanced as much aa
other nattous hnve.
Still ho enters foreign markets , nnd
his methods of entering nro worthy of
study. Of course there nro many excep
tions. The natural monopoly of a high
quality of petroleum has forced open the
ports of the world , , und it still sells al
most the world over , iu spite of A rising
competition that is backed by enormous
capital and almost autocratic power.
The Stcphonson oars nro to be met with
all through the cltlds of South America ,
and the ammunition of some New Eng
land works is preferred to European
wares of that diameter. Natural ad
vantages , or a special adaptation to cer
tain uses , are two of the most powerful
agencies for commanding markets , but n
monopoly based upon thc e qualities is
possessed by few of the staple products
of the United States. And when It is
wanting all the push nnd ingenuity of
merchants seem to fail.
Besides that , positive blunders are
made through ignorance or thoughtless-
ness. For example , a cargo ol American
machine-made shoes was sent to ono of
North African countries , where a shoe of
a peculiar shape , llexible sole and made
of undressed leather was the only foot
gear known. Of course the consignment
wits a failure , for the natives refused to
lay aside their sandals , costing but a few
pennies to make , and take up the bettor ,
because fnr nioro durable , American
shoe. The power of fashion , habit nnd
prejudice never seems to enter into the
calculations of the American exporter.
Possessed of common sense himself , hn
cannot understand why n person should
prefer n rod Inbcl on his cans to n blue , or
to have his * cloth twelve Inches wide
and so many yards to the roll , to a wider
cloth less or more yards of length. The
result is that the traditional shipment of
skates and warming pans to the tropics
is imitated by similar vagaries , its when a
large carnage manufacturer sent n cir
cular to Chinese inland towns addressed
"To the lending carriage dealer in - , "
forgetting that a carriage was as un
known and as useless in China as n sedan
chair is in New York , and that even
if he should receive an order it would be
next to impossible to till it , there being
no way of delivering the goods
If the manufacturer could get his raw
material at a lower price , it would result
in a great gain to him. Then it must not
bo thought sufficient to send out circulars
and illustrated catalogues. Imagine an
Egyptian fellah studying a picture of a
mowing machine or a self-reaper ! Active
nnd intelligent men must be sent out to
study the needs of the market it is in
tended to supply , and to remain on the
scene to reap advantage from every
favorable circumstance. This is the way
in which Germany has built up and is
continually extending her foreign trade.
In Mexico and South America , as well ns
in China and Japan , the rapid rise of
German commercial interests has as
tounded the English factor.
Many would extend the list of com
mercial curiosities by adding a system of
bounties , in imitation of the mercantile
system of Adam Smith 's dny. The home
market was assmrcdUo manufacturers , in
whole or in part , by a protective tariff ;
now foreign markets must bo opened up
nnd assured by bounties , subsidies nnd
Wp have not seen any proposition
looking to the foundation of American
colonies , which would be the copcstone
to the modern mercantile system , but it
is sure to bo made , though where such
colonies could be established this side of
the moon is uncertain. let , nnd this is
another difficulty , while seeking for mar
kets for their goods , our manufacturers
reject the offers of Canada and Mexico to
trade on reciprocal advantage , nnd pre
fer to play at the old game of high tariff
and a home market. When , in the
twentieth century , some latter-day Adam
Smith comes to describe the commercial
policies of the loading mercantile and in
dustrial nations of Europe and America
in the nineteenth century , ho will find
much to astonish him , but nothing more
astonishing than the policy of the United
