Yesterday at hlph noon there was a gath
ering of the city officials and prominent citi
zens In the elegant parlors of the Council
Hluffs club to witness the new mayor , M. P.
Hohrcr , take the oath of oftlco. President
McConncll , of the club , was master of cere
monies , and performed his part well. Ho
culled the gathering to order and addressed
them as follows :
Gentlemen : It Is with great pleasure that
I welcome you hero to-day In the naino of the
Council Hluffs club , to witness the adminis
tration of the oath of office to Mayor-elect
M. P. Itohrcr. who has been chosen from
among us to Jill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Hon. William Oronoweg , who
has been elected to the state senate , nnd to
whom this club extends Its good wishes
in his new capacity. I believe this
club was instrumental In bringing before
our honorable city council the name of M. P.
Hohrcr , and as ho Is one of our members we
feel Justly proud of him , and believe he Is the
right man for the place. While wo are not a
political organ i/ation , yet we will support our
honorable mayor and city council in all ,
measures that tend toward the up-bulldlng
of Council Bluffs. Wo arc now entered upon
a new year , and to mo It seems a year full of
great prospects of development of this city ,
and I believe that the social and financial in
terests of this club are more closely alllicd
to the interests of the city than any other or
ganization within Its limits. What wo want
to do Is to work and pull together for the
prosperity and up-building of our fair city.
Our watchword should bo Council Hluffs
llrst , last and all the time.
The retiring mayor , William Gronowcg ,
who has been chosen state senator , was then
called upon , and made a short speech. Ho
said he was glud of the opportunity of ex
pressing his thanks for the good will shown
him , and for the hearty support ho had met
on all sides. He was grateful for the har
mony of action that had been manifest , In the
council , nnd among the citi/.ens. They had
tried to work for the Interests of the city.
Ho had no nxcs to grind , no enemies to pun
ish , or friends to favor. Ho had simply
tried to do his duty. He had been acused of
violating his oath of ofllce by not enforcing
all the luws , If he was guilty of this , it was
because ho had simply followed the prece
dents laid down for him , and because he had
tried to comply with the principles as they
had been expressed as the will of the citi
zens. When he was in DCS Moines recently ,
trying to get some action taken by which the
assessments would bo made in accordance
with the law , the valuation to bo at cash
rates , instead of 40 per cent , Governor
Larabcc Informed him that whatever the
law might be , the precedent w.is clearly
against such a mode of assessment. If pre
cedent was better than law. or as good , for
the governor , it was good enough for the
max or of this city. He was glad that Mr.
Kohrerliad been selected as mayor. They
had both come to this city as poor boys with
out a cent. The speaker hud lived hero
twenty-seven years , twice as long as he had
lived in his native town. Who could have more
interest in the prosperity of the city than
those who had thus lived hero fory cars , whoso
only all was hcroi
At the close of Mr. Groncweg's remarks ,
'Squire Uurko rose and administered the
oath of ofllco to Mayor Kohi-cr. The now
mayor then addressed the gathering as fol
"President McConncll , Members and
Guests of the Council Uluffs Club Gentle
men : The solemn duty just performed by
Judge P. A. Uurko reminds mo anew of the
fact that our worthy board of aldermen have
conferred on mo mi honor that I do not merit
and , I am fearful , I cannot sustain. The only
consolation I can find at this moment is that
my term in cilice will be short and I hope
will be to the city's advantage.
Tlio kind and thoughtful invitation of the
club through our energetic president , S. P.
McCouncll , to have the oath of ofltcc admin
istered in these pleasant , homelike rooms as
sures me that you fully endorse all the grand
public improvements begun during the
year 1887 by Mayor William Groncwcg and
Aldermen J. Uanforth , L. Hammer , S. S.
Keller , P. Lacy , George Metcalf and Lucius
Wells and that you desire them pushed for
ward to completion , and new ones inau
gurated , in order that our city may keep pace
with our rapidly growing population. Your
presence here , to-day , gentlemen , leads mete
to believe that you confirm the action of our
city council in my selection as mayor. This
to mo is extremely gratifying , and in return
all I can possibly promise , is that I will try to
do my best for the city at large , aided by the
wisdom of my able cabinet. The past few
days I found myself , for the first time in my
short life , in the hands ( unsolicited on my
part ) of our seven leading daily papers the
largest and most powerfuldaily press enjoyed
in the commonwealth of Iowa. I thank
them for the tender and , I trust , harmless
manner with which they have handled me.
I am fully aware of the fact that the mayor
of any city is by custom the llrst representa
tive on which to get service , and by so doing
reach the city itself. I am convinced that
your public reception given nio now , is not a
compliment due mo , but > on the other hand ,
duo to the city of Council Ululfs the coming
largest city in the state. I , therefore , on
behalf of our lij.OOO people , return you their
thanks for your presence. The members of
the club have kindly tendered mo the use ifs
the rooms the balance of this New Year's
day. The doors will bo open to the public
and I shall bo pleased to have you all remain
and to receive any other friends who may
call. In conclusion , allow mo. to wish you all
returnsof this . n
many hadpy prosperous year.
Other short speeches followed. ( J. 1.o
Harl , who has rightful claims to being the
silvcr-toiiKued orator of this portion of the
state , made an eloquent address.
M. H. Shepherd wns called out and made a
hit. Ho hit the croakers hard and expressed
his satisfaction that the growth of the city
and its numerous enterprises had givcd the
lie to the doleful predictions of those who
had no faith in Council Uluffs. Ho was full
of confidence for ISbS , and after paying a
high tribute to the now mayor , expressed the
belief that so long as Holier was mayor lots
in Uecr's addition would never drop a dollar
in value. . , ire
Hon.V. . H. M. Pussy was called for. Ho [
: said ho supposed that ho and others of the
old , gray-haired citi/cns had been invited ;
, there as frightful examples. They had lived
. hero for years , and all hud their turn in the
- council. 'They were hero when this city was
, a hamlet. There had been great changes
- since the days of the old , Jerky stage coach. I
It was probably the infusion ef so much
young blood that had brought these changes
about. Ho wanted to express his hc.irty co
operation with the younger men in their at
- tempts to make this ono of the foremost cities
in the west. The very opposition by which
the city had been surrounded could be util
ized to its good. The gray haired men were
seeing things they did not dream of thirty
. years ago. Ho wanted to warn the new !
mayor of the dangerous position in which hor.
found himself. It was rUky to bo mayor
' Cleveland was mayor once. In closing hon
spoke more seriously of the intent of govcnv
incut , and ho gave the now mayor some ' n7
, wholesome advice about'being stern in lis
handling of the disorderly clement of tm
city , anil yet not to become intolerant in ils
exorcise of power.
Colonel Sapp was next called , and made )
hnppv speech. He congratulated the counci
on having made the choice of so cnergetii
. and honest a man as mayor. He sooko o
the great changes wrought , in the city sine
- ho first came here , and expressed the belie
that the city was now on the eve of ich
. prosperity as was never dreamed of by its
most enthusiastic prophet.
Alderman Wells was made to follow. Ho
, had been of the llrst to suggest Mr. Hobrcr'
- , name for mayor. Ho did so because ha bo-
, licvcd that ho was not only full of oncrgj ,
but level headed. The progress made the
but but the bo- <
ho past year was great , it was
ginning , ,
on After the speeches informal congratuli
- lions followed. Mayor Hohrcr remained <
- the club rooms all the afternoon rccoivin
and hospitably caring for his friends.
He Was Well AVatclicd. '
, Yesterday afternoon a few o Sherlfl Pen
Reel's friends perpetrated a 'gcuuiuo tu
pleasant surprise upon him. As ho was Ink

The City's News.
Council Bluffs , ns a city , has Just closed
the most prosperous year of her existence ,
and with the public improvements now under
contemplation there will bo much more ac
complished during 1888 , but there is need ft
more vim nnd push with the capitalists of
our city. The new bridge will bo completed
in Juno and the motor railway will soon
be in operation to hike Mnnnwa. These two
enterprises of themselves will have n tend
ency to attract large additions to our popula
tion. Business men seeking to open up new
enterprises can be induced to remain here
and become citizens with us , provided proper
steps arc taken to show them the advantages
wo have here. Hut in order to do this we
must have an organization that will bring
about concert of action. Where is our board
of trade ! We have heard nothing of late
about It , further than the facts that the _ pro
jectors have no money , und that there is not
enough interest taken in the organization to
insure its success.
The board of trade should bo reorganized ,
nnd solicitations made for membership among
our young and energetic business men.
Matters of vast importance need looking
after , by them , and they and they alone as an
organization , can do it. Wo must have n
line hotel built this year. Wo must have a
line union depot. We must encourage manu
facturers and many other enterprises here
before wo can expect to attain the greatness
that our natural facilities demand.
Let us liavo a general reorganization of the
board of trade , throw plenty of new blood
into it and then let us all roll up our sleeves
and help to make the year lsS3 the grandest
in its history.

drinks. Ho admits meeting several
friends on Halbtcad street and then go
ing east on Twenty-second street , but
denies having drank anything. Then
again the man bays : 'When 1 arrived
at a point on Twenty-second street a
little west of State street I noticed two
men walking toward me , who were be
ing slowly followed by a clo.-o carriage. '
That was npout 11 o'clock , in broad day
light , and yet ho bays the men chloro
formed him on the street and pushed
him into a carriage. The story , to me ,
is very thin. Another point which
doesn't tally wjth the methods usually
employed by kidnapers is the statement
that when ho recovered consciousness
Hurd found himself in bed with his
boots on. Hurd'a captors may have
been different from the usual run ,
though. Well , he had to have some
story to toll , I suppose , but he got a lit
tle large. "
"Nonsense , every bit of it , ' ' Lieuten
ant Arch of the Twenty-second street
station said , after he had read Kurd's
story. "Sucn a thing as that couldn't
have happened on Twenty-second street
nt that time ol the day , and I'll tell you
why. People are constantly parsing
along the street atthc , , hour he claims to
have been seined.and any sucli act would
bo noticed and a noise made. Another
fact is that a largo number of men are
working -on a new building near the
corner of State street and they would
have seen any alT ir as noticeable as
that would be. We got a dispatch about
a , missing man , but wo have so many
that unless there' is some especial fea-
sure about it we do not investigate
closely. Wo have a tough district , but
there are no kidnapers in it. My judg
ment is that any man who will go to bed
with his boots on doesn't have to be kid
napped to disappear. "
