THE DEAL OF THE DEALERS ,
Two Sides of the Pool For Shipping
CONCERNING THE CHAUTAUQUA
Services nt the diuretics The County
PrlntliiK A Special Jury For
the Coffinnn Case The
The Implement Shippers.
It has been announced that the prom
inent agricultural implement houses of
this city have organized an association
for the purpose of freezing out manu
facturers who have simply agents lo
cated hero , and who ship their goods
from this point through the houses of
transfer agents. These agents claim
that they arc residents hero , many of
them owning property hero , and paying
taxes , and that by reason of such dis
crimination against them as this associ
ation seeks to enforce , they will bo com
pelled do move away from here , locate
their business olbowhoro , and that the
city will thereby bo injured to that ex
tent. They feel that if the businessmen
generally understood the situation they
would not endorse the action of this as
sociation. It was suggested to them
that they bring their cauitoof complaint
to the attention of the board of trade , so
that Homo formal action might be taken
to relieve them , but the claim is made
in reply that the very men who are
foremost in this movement against
them lire leading members of the board
of trade , and that such a complaint
would naturally not receive fair treat
ment. They claim that it is hardly con-
sistant for such men to bo shouting for
Council BlulTs , and urging all to help
build It up , while they are endeavoring
to build up their own business by crowd
ing out others and injuring the city at
The chief complaint against this as-
sociivtlon Is.in regard to the shipping of
goods. It has been customory for a cus
tomer to order goods of different makes ,
and from different parties here , and the
one having the largest shipment , say a
half carload , to allow the others to put
their goods into the car , thus potting
advantage of the carload rates. The as
sociation , composed mainly of those hav
ing warehouses and sidetracks , has fie
lded that the one doing the loading of
the cur shall charge the other members
of the association , sending goods to go
into the sumo car , 3 cunts u hundred.
Thoho who are not members ol
ho association are charged 10
cents a hundred. As these
general agents hero , handling gooas
through transfer houses , are not mem
bers of this association , ' they have tc
pay 10 cents a hundred for shipping
their goods , while members to the asso
ciation load for each other for 3 cents.
This is claimed to bo a discrimination
which will force these men to do busi
ness elsewhere. The members of the
ihsociation state the situation in quite ; i
different light. They admit that there
is an association , but deny that it it
simply a Council Bluffs arrangement. If
embraces jobbers in Omaha also , and
the same regulations adoptedj here
govern there. If these who complain
locate in Omaha , they will got no bet
tor rates there. If they go to Kanwit
City they will find that they cannot load
there in other dealers' cars ul
any price , but will huvo to dc
their own shipping as best they can. A (
Lincoln tharo are no facilities for get
ting others to do their shipping , us thov
desire hero. In fact , under this ar
rangement , Council BlulTs affords these
gentlemen as good opportunities us can
bo secured anywhere , and bettor than
As to the justice of the association in
making this arrangement , the gentle
men concerned assert that tho'y have
acted for the best interests of their own
business and to protect that. It can
hardly bo expected of them that they
should sacrifice their own interests for
the sake of furnishing facilities
for men to cut into their own
trade. It can hardly bo asked
of them that they should main
tain warehouses , sidetracks and othei
facilities for shipping , and then allow
men In the same line of business tohave
the advantage of these for nothing. Ai
to the charge of 10 cents per 100 foi
loading such goods as those agents
bring to them , they say that this does
not pay for the trouble , annoyance , ex-
pence and frequent delays. Even ul
this rate they feel that they are ucconv
inodating those who now complain. The
reason for making u different rate foi
members of the association is that these
members nro in position to return th <
courtesies , while those who complalr
are always asking to have goods loaded
into other dealers' cars , but seldom , il
over , load by the car themselves.
One instance will miiKo it clearer ,
One house which has shipping.iacllltioi
received an order for u car load o :
goods , Including someseeders. . The
agent for another kind of seeder inducoe
the customer to cancel the order for tin
seeders nnd order of him. One of the
inducements offered the customer win
that the agent's seeders could tx
shipped in the same car as the othoi
goods and would cost nothing ndditionu
for freight , and at the sumo time tin
agent cut the price , thus securing tin
order , and causing the house which wa
doing the shipping to lose this much o
the original order. Then when thi
goods wcro to bo shipped the agent son
his seeders to the warehouse of thi
firm and wanted the firm to load then
into the car and send them to this cu
tomor. Hardly any business housi
would feel like shipping goods undo
the circumstances , and the least tha
could bo asked was the payment of II
cents a 100 pounds to help meet the expenses
ponses of shipping.
Mr. W. W. Loomis , of David Bradlo ;
& Co. , chanced to bo at the tcutuble thi
other evening , and was drawn into con
vernation on this subject by the recently
contly appointed correspondent of tin
Omaha Herald , who was formerly ii
the agricultural Implement business
and on the strength of this acquaint
unco , and little dreaming that ho wa
being intorvioved , Mr , Loomis tulkei
freely. What was his surnrihO when hi
found the next morning what purportei
to be a full report of this private , soeiu
conversation. Had the convorsatloi
been correctly given It would huvi
been a bad breach of social confidence
but Mr. Loomis found the btiiteinents s <
garbled and twisted , in the evident in
terests of the parties complaining ubou
the association , that ho protests stoutl ;
about being thus represented before tin
Mr. Wles is ouoted us saying at an ns
Eociution meeting , "wo huvo got tin
manufacturers , now let's fix them.1
Ho denounces this fully as stoutly u
being false In every respect.
No ono in this section of country is n
much interested in the prosperity o
manufacturers of and dealers in implements
monts generally us the companies wh
compose the Council Bluffs & Omuh
Implement Dealers' association. Th
following lift should convince any fair
minded person that it would bo suicldn
for thorn to persuo any policy that woul
injure 'the trade in implements i
Council Bluffs or Omaha : David Brad
ley & Co. , Council Bluffs ; Dooro. Wells
tf Co. , Council BlulTsi Wolr Shugart
Co. , Council BlulTs ; Purlin Orondorff &
C'o. , Omaha ; Molina Milhurn Stoddard
C'o. , Omaha ; Churchill Parker , Omaha :
Winoim Implement Co. , Omaha. It
has been stated that the implement
dealers association intends to shut out
of this trade the general agents of
manufacturers. The articles of the as
sociation , however , * clearly stnto that
they can become members and enjoy all
the benefits nnd shipping privileges
that are afforded any member under
these articles. The smallest shipper ,
handling but ono article , can have the
same courtesies from the largest house
as would be extended by that house to
its heaviest competitor.

The movement for securing n Chau
tauqua assembly here is being quietly
but earnestly pushed forward , and with
.excellent prospects for making it n
grand success. The plan Is for so broad
and firm a foundation as shall ensure it
us the Chautauqua of the west. The
location is wonderfully well adapted.
The many railways centering hero ex
tend in all directions through intelli
gent and progressive communities. In
almost every town in the country there
is now to be found a Chautauqua circle ,
and these circles need and are wishing
for some central point for the establish
ing of an assembly where they can come
together during the summer months ol
each yearfor ] study and recreation. A
stock company has boon organized with
the view of locating s\ich grounds
in the vicinity of Council BlulTt
and Omaha. Already there has been
about $20,000 secured hero , and Is be
lieved that the balance- the stock
will bo taken just as soon as the plan it
fully understood , and the advantages
offered fully reali/ed. %
There are similar assemblies at Crete ,
Neb. , Ottawa , Kan. , and other points ,
and they have met with wonderful suc
cess. They draw to these points thous
ands of people every season. It would
bo a great thing for thcso two cities if ,
by the establishing of such an assembly ,
a like number could bo drawn to this
railway center , which could bo done
much more easily than at either of those
points , or at any other in the west ,
These having the movement hero in
charge are looking beyond oven this ,
however. It is not their purpose
to establish merely a local ahsonv
bly , which will draw a few
thousand people from a comparativclj
small surrounding district. The pur
pose is not to get up a rival local as
sembly , but in fact establish litorall.\
the chautauqua' the west , a nationa'
center , fostering and accommodating
the local assemblies. These local as
sotnblies will continue to feorvo theii
purpose and continue to prosper , but
the west needs jusl what the cast has al
Chautauqua , N. Y. There are nianj
who cannot go to Chautauqua , N. Y. I
like accommodations can bo furnishei
hero , and money enough put in to secure -
cure in like manner men of nationa
reputation for instructors , entertain1
nients , etc. , during the season , then
cannot but bo drawn hero as lnrg <
crowds as yearly gather at Chautauqua
N. Y. There is bound to be a large
chautauqua at some point in this part o
the country , and probably another 01
the Pacific coast , and in time anothei
somewhere in the bouth. Counci
Bluffs and Omaha might as well sec'ure
this as to have some other city wrest i'
away , as they surely will if our people
arc not up and doing.
In looking about for a location foi
such an assembly , to bo started on such
a broad foundation as to make it equal
to the eastern ono , it has been decided
by those not locally interested , that this
vicinity presents the best possible ad
vantages , largely on account of the
many railways coming in from all
directions , the natural scenery , the
advantages of two largo cities , healthv
climate , good water , besidcsmanyothet
advantages apparent to any ono looking
over the situation. Dr. J. L. Hurlburt
principal of the Chautauqua Assembly ,
New York , who has been instrumental
in establishing local assemblies through
out the country , has made pcn-bonul ex
amination of this locality , and ho pro
nounccs it the finest point west for sucl :
The grounds selected , near this city
are nearer to Omaha than any suitable
grounds which can be obtained on the
other side of the river , oven if it coult
bo obtained as cheaply. The high price
of property near Omaha and the fad
that even at such prices as are asked ne
such beautiful grounds as these selectee
could bo had , make it advisable to locate
hero. With the new lines of communi
eation being ooencel it will bo as casj
for those living on the other sldo of the
river to como and go as though th <
grounds were west of Omaha. There
will be a through line of railway 01
street cars , so the grounds will bo easily
accessible for both cities , and those at
tending the assembly can visit eithei
city at will.
It will take $100,000 to carry out the
plans as outlined. A more local as
Bombly could bo obtained and main
tained for much less , but these having
the matter In hand say they will no
start the enterprise at all unless so aste
make it not merely for Council Bluffi
and Omaha , not merely for Iowa um
Nebraska , but present such attraction !
as shall draw from as wide tin extent o
country as to make the tibsoinbly nn
tional in its character.
The encouragement already roceivee
gives assurance that this enterprise wil
soon bo placed on such a foundation ate
to make this possible. The enterprise
is no experiment. The experience a
Clmutauqua , N. Y. and at every loca
assembly ground has demonstrated tha
tinancially , socially and morally such ai
enterprise cannot but succeed. A
Clmutauqua , N. Y. the surplus last yea
above expenses reached nearly $40,000
Tnat enables the association to provid
a rich programme for the followini
your , ana add to the accommodations
What has boon done east can surely b
done west , especially when In this loca
tion there are HO many moro advantage
than are presented at Chautauqua , N. \

Aitacltcd the Team.
Ofllcer Nicholson and Deputy Mar
shal Barhyto yesterday experienced a
little dillleulty in serving n writ of at
tachment on Chris Acton. The latter
was formerly a resident of this city , but
now resides in Omaha. He is engaged
in hauling corn across the river , and
drove up to the city scales to wait for a
load. The deputy marshal had the writ
in his possession , and -Nifcholson went
out of the police station -and asked the
man if his name waj j A ton. Being
answered in the afllrmativo , the officer
retraced his steps and Informed the
deputy. Acton evidently "smelt a
mouse , " for ho speedily began to un
hitch his team and was ready to drive
nwny when the oflicers came out and
tried to read the writ. cAc on whipped
up his horses and tried to drive over
thorn , but Deputy Barhvtejumpcd into
the wagon and applied his patent throat
constrictor , and soon peace was de
clared. Acton cried and claimed the
team belonged to his wife ' , but ho had
to go homo without it. 'Tno writ is in
favor of A. D. Boardslbyvthb druggist ,
and covers a debt incurred by Acton
tome time ago. The team was run
across the river , and yesterday was the
first time that the ofllcor had 'an oppor
tunity to capture the game , and ho was
determined not to let the chance slip.

It is doubtful if the case can bo submit

sixty jurors prepared for the trial of the

A VERY SPIRITED DEBATE-

Views of n ( Jcntllo
The Polygamy Problem.
WASIIIXUTOX , Feb. 18. The scimtc com
mittee on territories pare a hcnring to-day
upon the admission of Utah as u stnte , to ex-
Senntor McDonald , who discussed the lepil
features of the cnso and argued Unit the
power of congress to compel submission to
any reflation with regard to the marriage
relation was not Impaired by the admission
of Utah ns u state. Ho claimed congress had
no right to keep n territory out of the union
of states after Its people had fulfilled the
conditions and compiled with the require
ment prescribed for admission.
The committee took u recess at 2 o'clock ,
after which Delegate Caluo anil .Tuilgo Jcrc-
mtiih Wilson addressed the committee on the
Dclgato Cnluc salil the i > cople of Utah hnd
on four separate occasions naked admission.
One obstacle was polygamy. There was but
oni3 point in the constitution adopted about
Which there could bo any question and that
was whether thu twelfth section embodied
the honest views of thu KIU'.I5 men who voted
to ratify It. This section makes polygamy
und bigamy misdemeanors , punishable by line
and imprisonment. He declared upon his
honor , as n God-fearing man , that the people
of Utah did deliberately and unreservedly
adopt that section in good fuith us thu law of
the land and intended to enforce it In the
new state. Mr. Culnu defended his coreligionists
gionists of Utah against the charges brought
by various writers.
These who oppose statehood for Utah , ho
continued , cans nothing for the religion or
morals of the Mormons. It Is their politics
which they oppose. If you satisfy them you
must disfranchise every Mormon on account
of his religious belief.
Judge Jeremiah Wilson also addressed the
committee. Ho eulogized the people of Utah.
The Mormons hnd never broken a promise
nor betrayed u trust and therefore their sin
cerity in this matter ought not to bo ques
Delegate Dubuls , of Idulio , addressed the
committee In opposition to the petitions for
admission. He admitted the imputation of
Utah to bo sufficient so far ns numbers go to
entitle the territory to statehood , but do-
elured tlmt this imputation was mainly , im-
IKirted directly from Europe by the Mormon
church. Even with nil Inefficient ixilicc force
the number of arrests was enormously dis
proportionate to the population and thu vast
majority of persons arrested were convicted.
Utah hud been blessed with a superior
climate nnd soil. She lay on a
direct line between tho' cast and California.
United with such advantages her taxable
wealth only nggrepatcd I5UOO,0 ( ) < ) , $5KX.0X ( ) ( )
of which was railroad property not owned in
Utah , nnd JIO.OOO.OOO of which belonged to
the 80,1)00 ) gentile inhabitants of that terri
tory. Her taxable wealth averaged only ? 157
per capita , while in neighboring territories it
ranged from f300 to 5TIX ) . Ho asked to be
informed by any advocate of admission what
practice of IJrigharn Young or Joseph Taylor
was now admitted to have been wrong ; and
argued that the course of the Mormons in
the future could bo best judged by their past.
Crime was now ripe in Utah and the criminals
liad the sympathy of the entire Mormon pco-
| ilc. If any reform was promised ,
my abstention from the practices pronounced
jy law to be criminal , the man who promised
it was ostracised. The legislature refused
to mnko provisions for the arrest and punish
ment of criminals and the United States gov
ernment was compelled to bear the burden of
the local government of the territory. The
new constitution was half u trick , half a lie.
nnd these who presented it did not come as
free men to frco men , but , with cring
ing nnd cowardice , proposed to bind
themselves for 4ho future in n
way which was required of no other state.
The territory could not como in under this
constitution as mi equal and the provision
against the amendment of her constitution
was therefore cither entirely negatory or en
tirely wrong. The gentiles did not believe
two years of statehood would clapso before
the constitution would bo changed to meet
the views of the church.
The commute adjourned for the day.

CAN'T CORXRIl ITS PATENTS.
An Important DcclHlon Rendered on
the Rights of Cable Hallways.
KANSAS CITV , Mo. . , Feb. 18. [ S | > cclal Tclo-
gram to the BEE/ ] The Kansas City Cable
railway company scored to-day the first i > olnt
in the contest regarding cable patents in
which it is now engaged with the Metropoli
tan Cable railway people. Judge Gill ,
in tbo circuit court , rendered a decision
agreeing to fix the compensation for the use
of the patent. On January 0 the common
council amended the Highland avenue fran
chise it has granted to the Metropolitan people -
plo in such a manner ns to allow all the other
cable companies thereafter to bo constructed
in Kansas City the right to the use of all the
patents controlled by the Metropolitan com
pany on payment of reasonable compensation
and if no compensation could bo agreed uKn )
it should bo fixed by the Judge of one of the
criminal courts of Jackson county. After
the Kansas City Cable company hnd no-
ecpted the franchise of the Washington street
extension to Mts system the Metropolitan
company notified the city that it would not
accept the Highland avenue franchise nnd
forfeited its deposit of $10,000 in order to prevent -
vent the Kansas City Cable company from
using its patents. The latter corporation
contended that the more non-acceptance of
the franchise did not constitute a forfeiture
nnd nfter attempting to arrive at an agree
ment with the Metropolitan company peti
tioned Judge Gill to fix the compensation as
provided in section 27 of the ordinance. In
concluding his decision Judge Gill says : "I
shall , therefore , hear evidence as to the value
of these patents and fix the compensation.
After the hearing of the evidence and the fixIng -
Ing of the compensation and the refusal of
the Metroiwlttan company to receive the
same it is then optional with the city whether
it Institute proceedings for the forfeiture of
the contract. " The decision is a highly Im
portant one. both as regards the cable patents
and the authority of a city council.
