FalrmountCouncIl No. lOOTHoyal Arcanum have arranged for a party which Is to occur on the evening of April a , ana will be given in the parlors of the society. The affair promises to bu very enjoyable. The trimming dejmrtiiicntof H.

The forre of street cleaners yesterday tcran work on Mynstor street. The work being dene is much appreciated by the rcsf- dcnts in that vicinity , as the paving en that street , although put down only last , fall , is covered with mud to the depth of four in ches. There Is ono hopeful reform inaugurated. Heretofore the mud on the paved streets has been scraped up In piles , and allowed to lay there until the travel of many wheels had ecattcrcd it again. This season the dirt is actually being carted away. The change is certainly for the bettor. The largo audience nt Dohany's last even ing was most cnjoynbly entertained by Uo- Jand Heed and company in "Cheek. " Mr. Heed has many warm admirers in this city ana is always greeted with a largo house. His support last evening was first class and fully able to keep up the stasis standard of excellence. The cause of the dirty water now furnished by the city mams , is the breaking up of the ice on the subsiding reservoir. The wind keeps the cakes of ice in motion , and the agi tation of the water prevents the usual settling of the sediment. As the Ice is melting very fast it Is probable that everything in this line will bo all right in a few days. Father McMenomy is having plans pre pared for the erection of a parochial resi dence. It will bo situated on Fifth avenue between the church and the school building. From the designs ns they now appear it Is seen that the building will bo beautiful in ex terior and commodious within. lieing ono of the finest buildings of the kind in the state , it will bo n decided addition to the city and n valuable acquisition to the Catholic church. The next move on the part of the city should bo the securing of legislative author ity to levy a sunicicnt tax to pay for cleaning out the alleys running from Pearl to Mnin street , and back again , Just south of Broad way. The alley is running nt both ends , is filled with ugly piles of ashes and filth , and right in the heart of the city is enough to scare nwny any would-bo investor. No ono is found who will admit being responsible for deposits made there , and the deposits have been increasing all winter. The delegation from the city council mid the board of trndo did good work at DCS Molncs. They succeeded in helping the rep resentatives got the bill passed giving the city authority to mnke a special levy of 5 mills for two years for paving intersections. This will njalco that fund sufficient to enable the city to go ahead with the paving of Broadway , the rest of the cost , of the im provement to bo paid for by the adjacent property. County Attorney Daily wants fair play. Ho has warned the gamblers that- they must close their places of business , or ho would close them by help of the courts. As there has been little apparently done in the matter , some have raised the query as to why the colonel did not carry out his threat or prom ise. Ho objects to the unfair insinuations made by ono paper , and says that it is only fuir to wait patiently for the outcome. Colonel Dally has shown himself a fearless and vigorous prosecutor , nml yet ho doubtless finds that it is not nn cn-jy task to close the gambling houses on the Jump. It will bo n long fight at the best , and the public prosecutor cuter should bo sustained , rather than picked nt. _ _ Money at low rates on tlrst-clnss inrm security.

In the United States court yesterday , Judge Love presiding , the case of Mrs. Mary Poole vs the Union Pacific railway was on trial. The plaintiff Is administratrix for the estate of her brother , named Dovorc , who was killed nt the transfer three years ngo. Ho was engaged In coupling cars , and ills claimed that the engineer sent back the rest of the train with such reckless force as to smash the Sink , and bring the cars together Dovoro was caught and killed between them. The company claims that the brakes were set on the cars standing on the track , and that the train was backed up slowly , but on ac count of the set brakes the link must have bein broken. In other words , they claim it was purely accidental , and that there was no negligence or carelessness on the part of other employes. The case hns been tried before fore , but the Jury failed to agree. The grand Jury finished its work yester day. There have been four indictments found , none of them for very serious or sen sational offenses. Judge Shims had little of interest In his court yesterday and ndjourncd early. In the case of Stccle vs Ettingcr the Jury , after being out nil night , reported that they could only ngrco on ono thing , mid that wns that they could never ngrco. Judge Love told them ho could not let them go , and sent them back to their room , whcro nt Inst re ports they were trying to get n reconciliation between eight on one sldo nnd four on the other. In the case of Carruth vs the Chicago , Burlington & Quincy railway the Jury re turned n verdict for the company. In this case the plaintiff , ns administrator , sought to recover $ UO,000 damngcs for the death of George , Foster , n conductor , who wns killed in ISM while in the discharge of his duties.

George Not In Clover. An information was filed with the city clerk yesterday morning charging George Gcrspacher with assault with intent to com mit murder. The assault was made Thurs day night upon the person of ono of Gcr- spachcr's ' tenants by the name of Pardu , who failed to pay some rent that was due. Pardu wns badly beaten , nnd was unable to appear on the streets yesterday. Gcrspscher is also said to have drawn a knife and threatened to malto mincemeat of him. The place where the affair occurred was the at the old Union Avenue hotel , at the same place where Juck Hughes wns killed two years ago by the no torious Major Williams. Gorspucher was present nt that time , and it was largely through his reticence on the witness stand that Williams wns ncquittod of that crime. It wns thought nt the tinio that Gcrspacher was in soniu way concerned in the crime , and was under bonds to appear in court to an- swerXo that charge. His hns been a check ered career , nnd his reputation is decidedly unsavory. For n few months past ho lias kept very quiet , living at Belle Clover's house of prostitution , at bOO Broadway. It is claimed that the pair are lawfully wedded , nt nny rate Gerspacher has figured in police court several times in the role of wife beater , Miss Belle being the object of his brutnlily. At such times she has always made the complaint , nnd generally paid the fine imposed , although on the last occns ion she refused to do so nnd his thugship was compelled to Ho in Jail three weeks , and the lesson evidently proved salutary , ns ho hns been less dcmonstrntjvo since thnt time. The time for his hearing is not yet fixed , but it will probably bo postponed until the prose cuting witness can appear In court. Gerspacher denies stoutly that ho ever made any assnult upon Purdu , much less did ho attempt to kill him. Ho says ho simply insisted on getting his rent , nnd Pardu ordered him out. Ho refused to gound Pnrdu cnmo for him with n hate-hut. Gurspachcr says ho had no knlfo or revolver , nnd thnt in fnct the whole chnrga is without any foundn tion , and he expects to prove this by wit nesses , Drs. Sloser & Van Ness euro private diseases.

The April term of the superior court , will convene Monday. The March term has not yet adjburncd , but will probably be to-night At'the beginning of the term It was the In tention of Juilgp Aylcsworth to dispose of the cases , onthe docket in a very few days , b.ut owliig to Jto enforced absence ; of attor neys , wlro were engaged In the district court , the majority of the cases could not bo tried , and the term wns prolonged day after dny waiting for them. The decision in the park case has not been rendered yet , but ns the attorneys and other Interested parties nro now nil in the city , it will bo given cither to-day jr the flnt pf sest week. Since first arrived at , ino decision u.o * uCuii oStelldod nnd Is now very complete. It is claimed thnt the bill recently passed by the legislature will hnvo no effect on the case , ns legnl proceedings had been commenced previous to its passage. It seems to bo the opinion of many of the attorneys thnt the outcome of the case rests solely on the legal- ityof the condcmnntlon proceedings , nnd thnt If they were fully nccordlni ? to Inw , the city will hold the park , anil if they were not the city must lose it. This brings the case back to where it started. The attorneys who conducted the condemnation claim thnt nil actions tnkcn wcro legal , and profess perfect confidence in their ability to win the case for the city. The plaintiffs have not yet made known their plan of nctlon in the case , ns everything is dolnycd until it is settled whether the city is to bo mndo n defendant or not. Whatever their plnn may bo it is generally believed thnt they "bit off more than they can swallow. " nnd It Is predicted that the strain caused by their severe exer tions to mastlcato It will bring on n lasting nttnck of indigestion. llronilwny "Will Bo Pnvcd. The news wns received hero yesterday thnt the desired bill had passed nt DCS Molncs removing all obstacles In the way of pnvlng Broadway to the river. The trouble wns n technical one , in rcgnrd to the Issuing of bonds , mid thin being remedied there seems no rcnson now why the city cannot go right ahead with the work. The pnvlng of Broad- wns hns been looked upon ns the needed nc- companlnicnt of the new bridge. The shadow cast upon the proposed improvement being now removed it looks very sunshiny. AVith tbo completion of the new bridge , nnd the pnvlng of Broadway to its approach , this Reason will show n great nntivlty in nil portions tions of the city , but cspcclnlly In that ad- Jncent to these Improvements. Dill You Sec It ? When the window shades were thrown up at half-past 0 hint evening the most beautiful display of millinery over Been in Council Bluffs was shown in the windows of H. Friedman's estab lishment. This wns but a sample , and the most beautiful combinations wore scon in the pattern department and the display cases. Always in the lead , Mr. Friedman has this year outdone him self. Ho has thorough artists in ovcry department whoso work will more than satisfy the most fastidious. The open ing will continue to-day , and hundreds will visit this emporium of millinery beauties. The Motor Line. A number of workmen were sent by Mr. Kccd to put in the motor line crossing over the "stock track" of the Chicago , Bur lington < & Quincy on Ninth street ycstcrdny morning , but on arriving there n "Q" engine wns found standing on the crossing in charge of four regular employes nnd a specinl policu- mun. In answer to inquiries they stated that their orders were to stay on the crossing until "further notice. " "Further notice" wns evidently received about half past ten , as at that time the outfit pulled away. The proper thing would hnve been for the mnrshnl to hnvo nrrested the whole gang for obstructing the street. As soon as the obstruction was removed , work was commenced on the crossing and will probably be completed to-day.

How the Hankers of tlio Country Grow Rich Some Fat Fees. n. C. Ayrcs , of Plnnldnton , Dak. , writes the following letter to the Sioux City Journal , regarding the rate of in terest charged by bankers of this coun try : "Under more favorable financial conditions this country would need no protective tariff. If our financial policy would bo changed from ono of special favor to banks and bankers , and bo es tablished in the interest of productive enterprise , wo could manufacture in competition with the whole world with out the aid of protection. As matters now stand , the bankers who furnish the capital with which our manufacturers do business are the chief beneficiaries of our tariff system. \Vith the control of the volume of money now possessed by the bankswlth the banks combined in n national asso ciation with full "trust" powers , money for use in manufacturing is so costly that a protective tariff is an absolute necessity to manufacturers. It is not the difference in wages paid that creates the necessity for protection , it is the ex cessive interest that money commands , und this high rate of interest is estab lished by the combined banks which profit thereby. The cost of manufactured goods may bo found in the following elements : 1. The cost of raw material , , The oos of motive power. 3. Tlio cost of labor , 4. Thorobtof capital , or the ralo of interest for money. The foregoing will bo found to com prehend the xvholo range of possible ele ments of coat in the production of goods. Give uifill these at as moderate rates as prevail in England , Franco and Gor man v , and there will bo no room for dis cussion of the tariff question , for tlio necessity for protection will at once dis appear. Wltii any of these elements moro costly than they are in those coun tries , thetohoico , manifcstlyjlios between 'n degree of. protection and the destruc tion of more or le.es of our manufactur ing interests , Under existing condi tions ii cortninlvflocs cost moro topro- duce goods in America than it costs in tlio European < * oifntrios above named. Inspection demonstrates that this higher cost of production docs not result from a greater Bfst of raw material , mo tive power or labor , but that it is in consequence of the hMior rale of inter est , for llioiloy hove than there. 1. No countrjMn the world can fur nish raw material more cheaply than the United States , "VVo have mountains mid mines of irgn ; our cotton is nt the very doors of oiirj factories ; otir timber cannot bo surpassed in quantity or qual ity , nor furnished moro cheaply in tlio civilized world. And so with iho great bulk of the material consumed in nil of our industries. This proposition will not bo disputed. 2. As to power our mighty rivers , with unfailing supplies of water nnd falls unsurpassed , are ample to run the machinery of all the continents , nnd our coal is inexhaustible and so near the surface of the ground as to defy Euro pean competition. Wo can make steam with less labor than it costs anywhere else under the sun.- 3. As to labor in the United States and England lot Mr. Blalno himself tes tify. While ho was secretary of state , in 1881 , ho mndo an elaborate report from statistics gathered through United States Consuls in Diigland ( state depart ment , commercial report No. 1U ; page 98 , October , 1881) ) , in which ho used the following language : Undoubtedly the inequalities In wages of English nnd American operative1) nro more than equalized by the greater efficiency of the latter and their longer hours of labor. So the better quality Of their work and the greater number of the hours of their labor absolutely make the labor of the American mill-worker cost less thati that of his English competitor- according to Mr. Blainc. Note that , thus far , as to raw material , power and labor , we have the ad vantage. IT But in the matter of interest on money used in manufacturing there is a wide difference , and this difference is against us. English , French and Ger man manufacturers pny from 21 to 4 per cent for money , Americans from G to 10. It is no answer to this to say that the United States borrows for 3 , 15 } or I per cent ; or that money is 2 , 8 or 5 per cent "on call" with gilt-edge securities in New York. The matter in hand in volves the rates paid by manufacturers for money to use in manufacturing in America and in Europe , if the facts be not substantially as above stated , then this whole argument fails and falls. Investigation will show that the facts are substantially as herein alleged. European manufacturers employ ctmital costing not moro than one- half the cost of capital to the American manufacturer. And . this is the sub stance of the whole matter. The bank ers of this country control the loanable capital of the country , and they charge for it , "all the trallic will bear. " They are offered amii13 facilities for regulat ing the supply to the demand , so as to control rates. They do control rates , not through any mysterious interposi tions of divine providence , , but by un scrupulous use of the po.vor unwisely placed in thcirthands by equally un scrupulous or ani'azingly corrupt legisla tion. tion.The banking system by 'which the banks got their notes indorsed by the United States and made current for 1 per cent per annum , and are given practical control of the money volume , gives their association ( their money "trust" ) the power to regulate interest as best berves their money-making pur poses. In line with this is the practice of the treasury department in esteb- liahlng "public depositories , " nndc.r which practice sixty millions of the alleged "surplus" in the treasury is actually distributed among 208 banks , in sums of $1,100,000 and lefas to each , free from any interest charge whatever to the banks that have the use of such de posits. It may bo said , if these things are true ot the banks they ought to be able to furnish capital as cheaply ns it can bo obtoincd in Europe. Perhaps this is true ; but they do not. They are human institutions , and they manage their affairs for the money they can make. The point is , that scandalous legislation nnd administration put it within the power of bankers to cover the money market , and they do it. It is a power almost infinitely greater than nny king , emperor or potentate posses , and it is used wholly for the pecuniary benefit of the men in whose hands it is reposed. Our public credit is ns good as that of any nation in the world , porhans the best of any. Our private credit ought to be as good as that of any people in the world. With a financial system modeled in the interest of the people , and not solely in the interest of the comparatively few people called bank ers , our private credit would bo as good as that of any people in the world ; or , what is the same proposition differently stated our people , on equally good security , should bo able to borrow money for use _ in manufacturing ( or in any other legitimate business ) at as low rates of interest as any in the world. While national bankers dictate the financial policy of the United States , a protective tariff must lurnish the moans to pay them the excessive interest they charge , or our mills nnd factories must stop. Whan the clutch on the tliroat of American enterprise has been broken , the necessity for protection will have passed away. SPECIALNOTICES. _ NOTICK. Sl'KCIATj advertisements , such as Lost.
