Plums For TJ'cir Pots.
The county board finished its business yes
terday. The most important item was the
award of the printing of the oflicial proceed
ings of the board. The board showed its
usual policy of dividing the plums between
its pots , without regard to consistency or
fairness. The board at lirst determined by
resolution that the newspapers desiring to
bid for the printing of the proceedings must
file their subscription lists so that the board
could see which hud the largest circulation.
At the January meeting the Nonpareil and
some others hud no lists lllcd. The Council
Bluffs Herald filed theirs and swore to
it. The board seemed determined
not to allow the evening prohibition
organ any show , and so postponed the award
until the next mooting , to allow the Nonpa
reil time to show up how many subscribers
it really has. At the meeting yesterday
there were on lilo with the board the sworn
lists of the Council Bluffs Herald and that of
the Council Bluffs Globe. The Nonpareil
had no list and refused to show up how many
subscribers it really has. The inference to
bo drawn was not very fluttering to the Non
pareil's claim of being the leading paper , but
it preferred sugar to honor , and had evi
dently its arrangements well planned for
getting the desired plum , without regard to
whether the taxpayers were getting the most
for tlieir money or not. The board , Without
any rcgiird to the sworn subscription lists
which they had called for , decided to give
the printing of the proceedings to the Non
pareil , Glebe and Avoca Herald.
The action following to soon upon the
previous ono In regard to printing makes it
rather queer for the board. In the previous
case the board advertised for bids for print
ing blanks , etc. , and although the Avoca
Moil was the lowest bidder , and furnished a
bond which was approved as sufllcicnt , it
gave the plum to the democratic organ by a
party vote. The Nonpareil , although claim
ing to bo the republican organ , was very
hush about It , and now it appears clear that
Its Hiicnco is as good as silver. It has its
Some of the rejected bidders , especially the
Council Bluffe Herald , Is < iuito warm about
the collar , and the board will doubtless bo
frequently reminded of the favortls.ni ! shown.

The Strikers' Meeting ,
At 8 o'clock last evening the representative
members of tlio brotherhoods of locomotlvo
engineers , firemen and switchmen cnagagcd
in the existing strike on the Chicago , Bur
lington & Quincy took their scats upon the
stage at Pohany's opera house. J. H. Diet
rich presided , and in opening the meeting explained -
plained that Mayor Hohrcr was prevented
from attending by a press of oftlclal duties.
As the Unit speaker of the evening ,
Mr. Bryant , of Creston , representing
the cntrinrers , was then introduced ,
Heretofore our brothers have been subjected
in the infamous blacklisting system , and fol
lowed from ono end of the country to the
otht-r for alleged misdemeanors.
When our committee llrst asked an inter
view with Manager Stone , ho refused to
grant it , and when tliey llnally secured an
opportunity ho tlut'.y refused to grant any of
the twenty-one articles asked fur , and told
them to strike wuuneyor and as often as tliey
Mr. Arthur informed him that henovor would
submit to have the engineers treated in the
future at , they had been in the past. It is a
fact that wo have been mlsticutcd and used
by this Burlington company as no reasonable
man would treat his dog. I worked a year
as w'jwr ' for S 1.75 per day , and then by slow
promotion yeav by year I was made an en
gineer , and lit the end of six year * I was get
ting as much as IK ) per cent of the roads in
this country puy from the start , When
the strike was linn , instituted the
rood got a circular showing the
people that if our demand * were acceded to
some of our brothers would get thu nsunl-
Jlcunt sum of JiJtXiper month , So wo would ,
but is it any more than a n.un dtnervei. who
works sixteen hours a dav ovcry day in the
nionth. Some say why did the switchmen
gp out.It is vlmply because they arc. even
more poorly paid than the engineers. ' J tell
you there never was n nobler band of men
than these who arc standing out to-uay for H
principle , and they will stay out for tha
principle until they win this fight , whether
it takes a week or a year.
Air. Morton says everything is running
smoothly , and they don't want any moro
men , as they have no places for them. It Is
n fact that they don't want any more men of
There Is no name mean enough for those
men , who have lived off the free lunch
counters of Chicago and New York for the
past winter , nnd now come out hero to take
our places. I have no use for a "scab. "
[ Great applause. ]
They toll you of riots , but It
U false , and 1 am here to toll
you there has not been a riot from
Chlcniro to Denver , either at Creston or any
where else. The presence of the imported
bullies with clubs nnd tin stars Is what has
excited our boys and has compelled some of
the scabs to commit suicide.
Wo will show that we know what Is right
nnd wo propose to defend that right. Henry
B. Stone don't dream of running that road
without us. AVe have helped them pile up
the $3,000,000 of n surplus , and when this
fight is settled wo will go back
nnd with willing hands and hearts
help them pile up ? S.OOOXK ( ) moro. "
Mr. L. W. Rogers , of the firemen's brother
hood was next Introduced. "I hold In my
hand the reply made to our demands by the
Burlington company , and 1 hope to show you
that it is Intended to mislead the public In
every respect. Wo do not object to the class- !
Jlttition system in ovcry respect , hut it is not
Just to keep the new men on small pay , nnd
ilx the period of service required to make a
first-class engineer at several years , nnd
when ho finally reaches that point to be dc-
imscd for some trivial reason.rThoy claim
that our schedule if adopted would make too
large salaries for their employes.
In view of facts In your possession you know
that this Is impossible. While hero I wish to
say n few words In regard to the "scabs. " It
Is Inexcusable to over pass them by without
a good , sound kick. If I was possessed
of all the descriptive | > owcrs of Milton ,
.the eloquence of Webster , the voice
of an Apollo and the malignity of
a devil , I couldn't begin to describe a
"scab. " They comprise the very dregs of
wretchedness , and I believe that the citi/cns
of Texas made n mistake when they hung n
"scab" who had given up "scabbing" nnd
gone to horscstcallng. because he hail made
a great step toward reformation.
A word "In regard to the bravo ( I ) Pmkerton
men. I was much pleased with an editorial
that I saw this morning in the Omaha Bni : ,
a paper that I truly believe to bo the true
friend of lobor. It demanded that the mayor
and city council should order them out of the
city , or malto them show authority to net in
the capacity which they now 1111. These men
are little better than the scabs , and their
cowardice is well established ; in fact , the
wives of these men take them on their knees
ovcry evening and tell them a nice little
story before putting them to bed.
Now , ladies and gentlemen , nil wo
ask of you is n fair and careful
investigation of our case , and
that you arrive at a Just conclusion. If wo
merit your respect , sympathy and support ,
wo ask that you will freely grant , and 1 have
no doubts as to the result. "
Mr. George E. Bailey , of East S. Louis ,
was the next speaker , representing the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid Association. He
had just arrived from ICunsus City , and al
most immediately began to speak.
"As a BwiU-liman , pulling pins and coupling
cars day after day , I wish to say that this
system of oppression , about which you have
already ] heard , has galled us long
enough. Wo only ask simple Justice. They
They falsely say that we desire to take the
management of these roads out of their
hands. You can judge whether that Is so.
We only ask just compensation for our dan
gerous avocation. "
Then followed ono of the most interesting
addresses of the evening. Lack of space
prevents full publication. All of the speakers
were loudly applauded and It was very evi
dent that the sympathy of these who crowded
the building was wholly with the movement
of the Burlington employes , who nro making

The Motor Muddle.
The railroads continue to put nil the ob
stacles possible in the way of the motor line ,
and with apparently no reason , although
doubtless they have some occult one , which
is kept from the public. Yesterday the Mil
waukee & St. Paul ofticials were here , among
them being .7. T. Clark , general superintend
ent ; D. Odlin , assistant superintendent ; H.
B. Campbell , division superintendent , and
O. Bates , superintendent of depots and
bridges. A consultation was had with Mr.
Heed , of the motor line , and a contract was
presented for him to enter into. The con
tract , instead of being the usual one , pro
vided that at any time in the future when
the railway should want to put in any
other tracks across the motor line
the motor company should put
in the crossings at their own
expense , aim should maintain all such cross
ings. In fact the desired contract provided
that the motor line should bear all the ex
pense of all the railway crossings which
should hereafter be put in. It also provided
that the motor company should employ such
llogmen as the railway company might select ,
should pay for their services , and thu railway
company should hiivo control of them , and
hire and discharge them ut will. The motor
company had the privilege of footing the
bills simply. The usual contract was sent to
the Milwaukee company some months ago ,
but the company refused to enter into
such n ono. Now the motor company is
asked to enter into this one , whoso
conditions nro so obnoxious. Thu
motor company takes the proffer of this new
contract to bo simply a refusal to allow thu
motor line to cross the tracks , so the confer
ence resulted in no agreement. The onicials
left last evening for Omaha , nnd from there
will proceed homo.
Yesterday Sheriff O'Noil was enjoined
from proceeding with the condemnation pro
ceedings by which the motor line seeks to
get the right of way over the Chicago , Bur
lington & Quincy and the Milwaukee & St.
Such is the condition of the struggle for n

For Street Cleaning.
A road machine U oxpeetcd hero this week
from the factory of the Iowa Koad Grading
and Ditching Machine company at Burling
ton. The machine Is to have a week's trial ,
and if not satisfactory will bo taken away
without cost to the city , but if the council is
satllled with its work it will bo purchased at
a cost of J200. It Is run by two men nnd four
horses , nnd is claimed to do moro nnd better
work than twenty men and teams with plows
and scrapers. It is to bo used on the unpavcd
streets. It can bo used for grading , planing ,
irrigating or levy building. The members of
the council have much faith in it and think it
is just what the city needs. No negotiations
bnvo yet been made for a street sweeper , al
though it is proposed to purchase ono this
summer to bo used on the paved streets ,
With these two machines the streets of this
city can bu kept in llrst class repair at n com
paratively trifling outlay. The council
realizes that the coming season will bo an im
portant ono for Council Bluffs , and are fully
determined that the public Improvements
sliall keep pace with these made by private
The Kllent School.
The efforts of Superintendent Hothert to
secure special appropriations of $40,000 , for
the deaf and dumb institution here have
been only partially successful , but still the
securing of S 17.00 as compared with t,500
appropriated by the previous legislature , Is
commendable. Of this special aimropratlon
$300 ia to bo used for tire hosu and Jlya ex
tinguishers ; for boilers and electric light

CONKLING AND INGERSOLL.
Interesting Gossip About tlio Glnnts of
the New York Bar. ,
New York Tribune : Perhaps the most
unique , if not the most impressive llguro
at the bar of Now York ia Roscoe Conk-
ling , ho of the curly forelock and the
majestic frown. Mr. Conkling is not in
ordinary practice. There are hints
abroad of great fees that have boon paid
him in exceptional litigations. Ho will
appear for Judge Hilton in the Stewart
will case , nnd I am told that hiH retain
ing fee in that impending con diet
was a check for $25,000. The
same sum is said to have boon
paid him by the Boll telephone
company , and the impression generally
exists that the ex-senator considers IOO'H
of $10,000 very small potatoes , indeed ,
and scarcely worth his while. Not that
I actually know of any 810,000 fco which
ho has spurned , nor of any lowly liti
gant , unable to offer moro , at whom his
nose has been disdainfully elevated. It
would bo safe to say thaut ho is employed
rather for the strength "of ijis name and
political associations and reputation than
lor any extraordinary leal attainments.
After he resumed practice , upon the
legislature's refusal to ' return him the
triiht he had abandoned , his first case
brought him into controversy with Mr.
Choato. It was on a mqtion for a non
suit , and ho addressed the court for six
hours. The court listened indulgently ,
for the speaker was tin ox-senator , an
orator of distinction , and it was his lirst
case , although motions for u non-suit
rarely occupy half that time in thola
disposition. In beginning his rewly
Mr. Choato referred in that quietly
sarcastic way of his to the reappear
ance of Mr. Conkling' tind welcomed
him back to the bar with much appar
ent cordiality. "I had much pleasure , "
said thu amiable Choato , "in listen
ing to the address with which ho
charmed your honor , and I shall ven
ture no other criticism upon it than that
it was not long enough. It occurs to mete
to advert , however , not in tlio way of
criticism , but only of friendly sugges
tion , to ono of my learned friend's re
marks. IIo alluded to something I had
said as 'false , utterly dovo.d of truth. '
Of course , my friend forgot for the mo
ment where he was , of whom ho was
speaking , nnd to whom his remarks
were being addressed. But if ho wishes
to succeed as an advocate , he must aban
don the methods of a politician. He
must keep in mind the fact that ho is in
court and not in congress. "
It is often fciiid of Mr. Conkling that-
ho is too much given to bantering for
HUCCCBS in borious work , and that ho im
presses himself rather than his client
upon the attention of the court. IIo is
grandiose in manner , ho employs pic-
turcsquo phrases and indulges in much
cynical repartee , but his grasp of facts
and law is none too strong. The tend
ency of the courts nowadays is toward
business principles. Brilliant oratory
is effective only in the oyo8 of admiring
clients , who are dazzled by its style
and fancy it must also carry away the
Colonel Ingorsoll is another member
of the picturesque school of lawyers , and
much resembles Mr. Conkling in ora-
torial propensity. There is this differ
ence , however , that noolomctof self ap
pears in the brco/.ey speeches of the
colonel. They are heart and soul for
his client. Ho is at his best when en
gaged in presenting his facts. His
statements are lucid and full , his illus
trations dramatic and ingenious , his
manner irank and persuasive. There
fore , despite his somewhat slight ac
quaintance with the forms of practice
and the law as the books give it , ho
makes an excellent jury lawyer. In
appearance our American free-thinker
bears a close resemblance to his English
friend , Mr. Bradlaugh. The likeness is
so striking that Englishmen who have
mot the colonel on the streets
of Now York have spoken to
him , actually believing that
they were addressing Bradlaugh.
It is an odd fact about the colonel that
ho always booms to got on the wrong
bide of public questions of the day.
Most persons who are regarded as erratic
upon theological questions like Mr.
Collyor , Mr. Frothinghiun and Mr.
Adler , for instance , are distinguished
for their zealous advocacy of everything
that ennobles human life , that tends to
make man bettor and liunpior. Tlieir

of progress and reform. But it scorns to
bo the other way with thojcolonol. Ho
sneered at the boodle urosLcutions , und
spoke savagely of the ' "atmosphere of

OMAHA , April 2 , im To the Editor
of the BKK : The recent address of Pres
ident II. H. Warner , of the Rochester ,
N. Y. . chamber of commerce , isn manly ,
straightforward argument , presenting
the claims of his city to the attention of
these desiring to invest in its real es
tate. or who are seeking advantageous
localities for the establishment of man
ufacturing interests. His views upon
this latter topic nro so full of common
fconso and are PO singularly applicable
to our own situation , in connection with
the well directed cffortsof the manufac
tures bureau of our board of trade , that
wo cannot do bettor than to quote the
following extract. Ho says !
Now , gentlemen , if two industrieB
alone , the clothing nnd the boot and
shoo industries of this city , will furnish
employment to , or sustain about forty or
fifty thousand people , and with the
natural growth within ton years from
forty to fifty per cent. , what may wo not
expect from a united olTortto encourage
other largo manufacturing enterprises ,
of which wo have but few ? Ko fleet for a
moment , and call to your mind how
many manufacturing concerns have
each furnished workt for thousands of
people , almost an entire city. Of course
sucn largo concerns , employing a great
number of people , are not so advantag
eous as smaller manufacturers , employ
ing the same number of men , from the
fact that if misfortune should overtake
some of the latter the calamity would beef
of less importance , as it would only
affect a few , while with largo concerns
many would bo affected , causing a morn
general depression for the time being.
Largo manufacturing concerns can bo
induced to como to Rochester. They
must bo eneournircd in moro ways than
ono. Wo must lot them feel that their
success is ours. We must encourage
them by giving them our financial aid
in case they asK it as an inducement to
locate in this community. Why should
wo do this ? many will ask. 1 will try
to explain : If ovcry man would invest
a little of his surplus in manufacturing
con corns that earo to receive
such investments , provided the
stock is offered by such concerns as lo
cate in our midst , the amount \yould beef
of little importance to the investor.
Yet , if all capitalists , business concerns
and real estate owners in the city of
Rochester would invest 1 or-uorccnt
of tlieir capital in assisting manufac
turers to locate here , even if one in
five were to be a failure , and the
loss of 50 per cent of such in
vestment should actually bo made ,
which is not at all probable , the growth
of our city would bo marvelous and
within live years the value of our real
estate would increase at least ten times
the amount that we had invested , eve. .
if the in vestment should be an ontii-s
loss. We cannot expect a few to do thu
alone , neither can wo expect the mem
bers of the chamber of commerce alone
to do it. Neither can we expect our
large business men or capitalists to do it
alone. Every citizen of Rochester
must be wide-awake to the new era
that is dawning upon the city. Kvory
one must contribute his little , and wo
will bo astonished at the result inside
of five years.
Many will pooh ! pooh ! at this suggestion
tion- , and will say : "That's right , let
these wide-awake , energetic men put in
their money ; I do not propose to dis
commode myself for the sake of others'
profit. " Such men are blind to their in
terests. They blind their vision with a
Gentlemen , I do not hesitate to say
that Rochester could make millions of
dollars by investing 1 per cent of her
wealth in encouraging manufactures.
In five years , if this was done , she
would double or triple her population ,
and increase her wealth , by increasing
the value of her real estate , many times.
By increasing the work in our city wo
would reduce the percentage of our
taxes much more than the amount of
money that we might contribute towards
The belief is that our citizens have
become wideawake to the fact that Roch
ester can become a great city , and is
about to cast oil its village garb. That
potty jealousies and envy are fast be
coming things of the past. Mushrooms
are becoming palatable , and old fossils
are fast being shelved and forgotten.
A few years ago , from the best obtaina
ble information , a man who came to
this city as a stranger was considered
an interloper , anc if ho met with suc
cess ho was compelled to battle with
jealousy , false rumors , and the compli
cations that arise in business from such
sources and the bosinoss world besides.
We have risen above all this , and to
day it is the prevailing sentiment of all
to welcome , encourage- and foster busi
ness and manufacturing , and the gen
eral sentiment of the entire city is :
"Wo welcome you ! Come ! Wo have
every advantage to oiler you ! "

"It is , my darling. "
"I have been thinking about it for
bomo time , and now I have got a de
lightful surprise for you. "
"A delightful surprise ? "
"Yes , dear. I sent for mother yes
terday , and I oxnect her every minute.
I moan to have her stay with us quite a
while. She will take care of the house
at night and look after the children ,
nnd I can go down town and sit in your
olllco with you while you work. "
"Tho dev - that is to say , I couldn't
think of vour going down town - "
"It is my duty , dear John , I ought
to have thought of it before , but it never
came to my mind till yesterday. Oh ,
John , forgive mo ! Forgive mo for not
thinking of your comfort sooner. But
I will go with you to-night. "
"To-nightV Why I I the fact is I
got through with my books last night. "
"Oh , you did ! How delightful ! And

The inmates of the room heard her , und
