The work on the approach of the
Broadway bridge is being delayed a little
tlo by the material not arriving as soon
as expected , but there is no waiting or
idling , the energies being directed to
other work in the meantime. Yesterday
the work of excavating for the first pier
wns being pushed right along. The first
pier is on the west bank of the river ,
about ten feet from the water cdgo , and
the excavation will be to bed rock , a
depth of thirty-seven feet only. It was
not the intention originally to sink this
pier to bed rock , but under the later
plans this is to bo done , making it as
solid as the everlasting hills. There
were also soundings being made for the
pier in the middle of the river , a boat
being thcro with a gang of men. It is
evident that the bridge company and
the contractors arc pushing the work as
rapidly as possible , and their promise to
hnro the bridge completed early next
summer bids fair to bo promptly mot. It
scorns that in less than a year from this
time this now communication between
the two cities will bo in active use by
Those who have stuck closely to their
stores and homes in the central part of
the city have little realization of the
changes that are going on in the vicin
ity of the transfer. One old resident
who , in company with a BEE man ,
drove about there yesterday , expressed
the surprise felt by many when ho said :
"If anybody had told mo u year ago
that I would have seen so many now
roofs in this part of town , I wouldn't
have believed it. I have always
thought that these lands would bo used
sooner or later , but somehow I got to
thinking it would bo a good deal later
than sooner. It don't beom possible. "
The number of improvements can only
bo realized by a personal inspection ,
and it scorns strange that so many citi
zens rest quietly up town , without see
ing for themselves the many changes
going on day by day.
The new round house of the Union
Pacific , one of the largest in the west , is
rapidly approaching completion. The
brick work will be done by the first of
November , and it is expected that the
house will be ready for occupancy a
month later. A number of the railway
men are planning to take up their
residences on tnis side about that time ,
as their will be over hero , and there is
not a day passes but what there are
numerous inquiries for lots and homes.
It is now announced that as soon as
the engines are housed herOj a.nd trains
kept and made up on this side , the
building of shops will follow at once ,
the work on the Buildings to commence
this winter. It is whispered among the
railroaders , who keep close track
of such matters , that the Union
Pacific intends having its main
machine building at least six hundred
feet long. There are other improve
ments to bo made , besides the extension
up Tenth avenue. It seems that there
are now being worked as _ largo forces as
possible , and the prediction is made that
greater things than these are yet to
The building activity in Council
BlutTs this season seems to be chiefly in
regard to residence property. There is
such a demand for homos , for houses to
rent , for rooms , etc. , that it is evident
thcro are many new-comers here. It is
difficult to get the exact number of new
residences built here this season , but
they certainly exceed the record of any
previous year in the history of the city.
When the school census was recently
taken these engaged in that work cure-
fully noted down all the houses which
they saw in course of construc
tion during the two weeks they wore
making the canvass. They counted 288.
It appears from the postolllco reports ,
the carriers be ng notified when a now
house is occupied , to guide them in the
delivery of mail , that over 400 now
houses have boon thus completed and
are now being occupied. A contractor ,
who has been keeping close watch , has
been making an enumeration , and ho
fixes the total number of residences
built or contracted for this season as
It appears that while some other
cities in Iowa , notably Des Moines , lost
voters , as shown by the registry this
full , Council Bluffs has gamed , and
when the last day of registry is closed ,
so that the accurate count can bo made ,
it is believed that the showing will be
ono which will bear out the showing oi
the school census , by which it is esti
mated that between four or live thou
sand inhabitants huvo been added tc
this city's population during the year ,
"Real estate is looking up , undthoro'i
more activity than ever before at this
time of year , " remarked ono of the
prominent dealers yesterday , and thii
sumo assertion is frequently hoard bj
these concerned. Most of the sales
like the building improvements , are o !
resilience property. The largest salt
this week is that made by O. II. Gor
don and J. W. Paul , of Omaha , to Potter

In the district court yesterday then
was a further round-up of the saloons
There wns little in the proceedings t
interest the public generally , and ther
wore but few listeners to the tcchnica
motions and arguments which attom
every stop in the proceedings. It i
chielly in the results that the interes

The twelve men called upon to decide
whether Harry Witmcyer is a horse
thief or not were locked in a room
Monday night about 7 o'clock. They
were in one sense a disagreeable sot of
fellows , for after staying together for
fourteen hours they could not agree ,
and asked the judge for further In
structions. Even with this enlighten
ment they could not agree , and they re
mained in their room for forty hours.
Yesterday morning they were as far
from reaching a verdict as over and
consequently wore discharged.

tleman to another , as they were standing on Broad
way yesterday afternoon.
The object of this remark had just passed up the
street , and ever on the alert for news , the reporter
followed him. He was a middle aged man , well dress
ed , and apparently a gentleman of the well to do
class. In his hand he held a memorandum book , and
as he scanned the signs as ho passed them he mutter
ed to himself , "Four Hundred and Onel Four Hun
dred and One ! Four Hundred and One. Yes , that's
the number wife said ; Four Hundred'and One.Broad-
way. ' ' And as he came opposite to Harkness Bro's
store , the look of anxiety passed from his face and he
broke into a laugh. As he passed through the door
he said to himself , "I may be stark mad crazy as a
loon , but I am not crazy enough to pay double prices
for inferior goods , when I can get the best of Hark
