Employes to Bo Examined.
"Tho light between Captain Mcsslmor
and the band seems to bo an everlasting
one , " remarked a member of company A
yesterday. "I do wish the colonel of the
Fifth regiment would como hero and in
vestigate the matter so we could have a
rest , If ho doesn't there will bo a contin
ual growl and matters will never bo any
better until an investigation. It becomes
tiresome to the public as well as the
hand and the member * of the company.
When wo wore in camp Messimcr
acted like a man ; wo were all proud
of him ; ho didn't drink nor do the least
thing that could bo found fault with. In
conscnuenca ho elevated himself in the
eyes of the boys , but the ill-will is begin
ning to show itself again. For some rea
son lie has not attended the drill lately ,
and the boys w&uld like the matter
closed by an investigation. "
The wish expressed in similar manner
by many , seems to have been felt by
Captain Messimcr also , who has written
the following letter to the commanding
ollicer of the regiment :
Colonel George II. Castle , commander
Fifth regiment , I. N. G. , bhenandonh , la.
My Dear Colonel : As there is a mlsunder-
HtnuditiK between a certain band and myself ,
the facts of which you are by this time ac
quainted with , and ns there hive been
charges mailo n .ilnst mo ot a serious nature ,
ami such tlmt 1 cannot overlook , 1 would
therefore ask that you appoint a committee
of ollicors to liivwtlsnto the same ami In
quire into the truth ot tlio matter. 1 am
ready nnd willing at nny time to appear bo-
f ore such committee.

The police judge was rather tardy in
putting in an appearance yesterday
morning. But business was such that it
did not demand much of his valuable
time after all.
The nnmbcr of cases bcforo his honor
was small , compared to the business dur
ing the week just ended.
The case against Dill , nn uncle to the
bootblack , in a disturbance on Friday ,
was concluded , the judge remarking that
he was guilty of the offeaso charged. But
ns ho had procured the services of such
nn able attorney , and had cone to such
an expense to defend himself , ho con
cluded he would discharge thu prisoner.
Ho didn't doubt but that Bill had inter
fered and tried to see fair play , at least ,
but thought as ho was related , to ono of
the principals , lie became somewhat ex
cited and didn't remember how far ho
did go in the matter.
Fred Harter and William Jones were
each lined $10.00 for disturbing the peace
about the canning factory.
Ono guilty drunk forfeited his appear
L. Smothers , a common carrier , was
brought to the front for not having a
license. Ho told the judge ho had been
advised by counsel that ho could work by
the day without a license and for that
reason had not obtained the necessary
permit. Thu judge , after learning the
name of the attorney who gave such
advice , remarked , "the lawyer is off. It
is the ordinance ns l find it and I can do
nothing but enforce it. "
These who are soliciting subscriptions
for the Chautatiqua have boon meeting
with fair success , and between $12.000
and 1(15,000 has been secured. The whole
$30,000 should have boon raised before
this. It is getting late for arranging for
next year , nnd tiio people should bestir
themselves if they want to secure this en
terprise and make it the success which it
ought to bo. If those who expect to give
would promptly dcculo what they can do ,
the matter can bo quickly sot in motion.
The entcrpriso is too valuable a ono to bo
allowed to bo established elsewhere , as it
surely will bo if Council Bluff : ) docs not
improve its present opportunity. By a
liberal support on the part of those who
can aid the enterprise easily , it can bo
started on a basis which will ensure sac

quite likely others will take place. A

Investigation ot facts in regard to
street lighting continues. The territory
covered by the electric lights on the
court house has been pretty well estab
lished by actual observation night after
night. To light such n district tile city
would pay under the new oil lamp con
tract , $320.80 , for gas for the same dis
trict , under the reduced bid for gas , $920.
To light as well as by the electric light
system is estimated to cost ? 1,057. The
cloctnc light company proposes to do
this for fcDOO.
Under thcso estimates it appears that
electric light will prove cheaper , as well
ns bettor. In view of the pccition of
property owners it appears tliat the
council will not hesitate in deciding to
close some contract for electric light.

Petition of TOO citizens asking the coun
cil to adopt the electric light system of
lighting the city. The committee to
whom the matter was referred reported
favorably upon the twenty-lifth propo

Much time wis occupied with discus
sion of the proposition.
Aldormun Wells wanted the light ,
while Keller didn't care to have to buy

tract. Ho thought ho had hunted the
matter up nnd his figures would stand
with any others. If his figures didn't
como right ho offered to buy a hat for

Lacy wanted it postponed until Mon
day and Keller said that would suit him
as no couldn't vote for it as it stood.

A Farm Hand ConUdenccit.
Again the well-worn confidence ex
press racket was played yesterday morn
ing upon a green farm hand to the tune
It appears the farm boy , aged about
twenty-three , came to this city from
Sioux Oily on the train yesterday morn-
iiu > . On tun train ho nude the acquaint *
unco of a slick-kougucd "con. man , " who
explained that ho wished to liiro jUsUuch
it young man as Ins , and that ho
would willingly pay thu highest wages to
such u < htind. After arriving in this city
they proceeded as fur .as the Chicago ,
Burlington & Qniuoy depot , thu "con.
man" carrying the grip , of his "fiiuud. "
They were' unexpectedly met by Mr.
"con. man" number two , who presented
nn express bill. "Con. man" number
ono didn't have tlio necessary "money ,
but ho was well piovldcd with checks.
Ho asked his friciid , ' tlio farm
hand to loan him $150 , nml
handed him n clibck. for $800 ,
which ho suggested , ho hold as security
until he could get a check on ono of the
city banks cashed. He'wont ' to jrsi the
cash nnd the green hand i'ninks no was
eccuro to ths extent of $ SQO , having a
o'lcck payable to bearer in his possession ;
didn't care pnrticularly'if ha didn't re
turn. It finally dawned upon- him that
ho had been done up , after awaiting the
return of "con maa" number one.
The police hunted in vain for the con
fidence men all over the city.
A Burst Window Light.
Last night nbout 10 o'clock two boys

smashed ono of the plate glass windows
into smithereens. Ono of thorn was ar
rested and gave the name of Charles
Mitts. Thn building is owned by L.

the pinto glass was insured. The light
costs about $75.

White Horses nml Hetif.
Philadelphia News : "Did you over see
a white or gray horse overcome by the
heat ? " asked a well known livery stable
The gentleman to whom the question
was directed put on hib thinking cap.
The rarity of such an occurrence had
never before suggested itself to him , and
although ho was among thousands of
horses every day : md had seen hundreds
overcome , lie could not recall a blnglo
instance in which a white or a gray
horse hiiS been prostrated by the sun's
ravs.The cases of prostration among white
nnd gray horses are very rare , " con
tinued the horseman. "Wo have forty
or fifty among the one hundred and fifty
we employ , and I never knew of but ono
that gave out from the effects of the heat
in myexpcrienco of twenty years in a
stable. This , too , was hardly a fair case ,
as tjic horse was pulling a heavy coupe ,
which was overloaded , up ono of Fair-
mount's steep hills. His illness was only
momentary , and as soon as he received a
little care he was nil right again.
"dm I account lor iti"
"Well , not exactly. But I suppose
white or gray doe ? not attract the lieat
like darker colors. You have probably
noticed this in your dross. A black
shiny-surfaced coat seems to burn into
your vpry llcsh , while a garment of light-
colored cloth seems 090 ! and brec/.y.
This is probably why white o- gray horses
stand the heat better. They , are not so
susceptible to the sun's r'uys ) ,
"Keep a sharp lookout : aftur this , and
you will see that cases where white and
rray horses succumb to the heat arc as
rare as the "dead donkey" in England. "
A veterinary surgeon , 'speaking on the
same subject , said that 'Ihc4 liveryman's
hoory that the light colors did not at
tract the heu : so readily as. the darker
ones , was correct. i
"This is well known , " said the sur-
; eon , "in many of the countries where
io climate is warm , and fo this reason
alone horses' dark color' are rarely
scon , in Cuba white , .gray or sorrel
bring high prices , while blacks and dark
bays can be bought for a song , The people
