Tlio AVnr on Liquor.
A wagon with four kegs of beer and a
jug of something , standing in front of
Justice Schuiv.'s olllco yesterday after
noon , indicated that the case which
drew the crowd was of a liquor nature.
The kegs and the jug were zealously
uurdcd by a man on the wagon scat ,
vhohad to take good naturedly the jibes
andjcors of those who have no liking for
ho seizure prosecution. Henry DoLong
ivus prancing up and down stairs , and
awyers and witnesses were only out-
lumbered by the gung of lookers-on.
The first case called wus the ono In
which Do Long Is charged with larceny ,
n having illegally seized some kegs of
acor. As objections hud been ruised
against any justice in the city trying the
case , except Justice Burnett , and us ho
had boon subpoenaed us a witness , the
question was raised us where the case
could bo sent , or whether it should bo
sent anywhere. The question wus such
a knotty ono thnt Justice Schurz con
cluded to think over it until Monday.
Tlio next case was that concerning
a seizure of the four kegs of Deer and
the jug outside , waiting to bo brought
into court for evidence. The proceed
ings were for destruction of these li
quors. It was claimed that they were
found ut No. 01S ) South Main street , and
that they were there being kept for
sulo by Frank Lower , Gus Bergman
"or others. " The first round was fought
ever alloired defects in the information ,
the ' ' others " which
notably 'or , wus
considered too indefinite to warrant the
Issuing of a search warrant.
A great deal of talk over law points ,
sharp ones , wus indulged in by Attor
neys Hulduno and Sims. Authorities
were piled up on the justice's desk until
lie wns almost hidden , but peeping ever
the toj ) of them ho declared that they
could go home and wait until next Tues
day , when ho would decide whether the
information should bo dismissed or not.
The driver was notified and the beer
kegs in controversy rolled away from in
front of the temple of justice.

Planning I < 'or Chautauqua.
F. R. Hill , an engineer from Sioux
ity , was in the city yesterday , looking
ever the proposed Chautauqua grounds.
Ho has considerable experience in land
scape gardening and parking , nnd his
opinions in this respect arc looked upon
as being somewhat authoritative. Ho
expressed himself as charmed with the
ocation , nnd enthusiastically declared
, hut ho knew of no more beautiful spot
'or such a purpose anywhere in the Mis
souri valley. Ho is very familiar with
all the topography of this section of
country , having personally inspected
most of it , and having run railway lines
: n all directions through it. With the
buncos ho has had for careful examina
tion of this part of the westhis expres
sion of admiration for the proposed
grounds can well bo relied upon as based
m careful comparisons. Little such ev
idence is needed in this community as
to the desirability of these grounds for
u Chautauqua , for many hero uro famil
iar with their beauties and advantages.
Mr. Hill says it will not need us lurgo
an expenditure to improve and further
beautify the grounds as most places
selected for park purposes. Nature bus
done much , nnd with a few thousand
dollars u your the place can bo made
ono of rare attractiveness. Ho has
been looking over the grounds with a
view of making more definite estimates
of the probuble cost of drawing maps
nnd taking surveys , preliminary to the
making of desired improvements.
The Chnutuuquu folks feel the neces
sity of immediately making a start in
order to hold the first iisbombly next
season. There is much preliminary
work to bo done , and tome of this
should already bo under way. Corre
spondence is now boingcurried on which
will result in the presentation of some
definite propositions to the next annual
meeting' of stockholders , to bo hold
early next month. In the meantime
the subscriptions should bo increased ,
so that the enterprise may not be
crippled by the luck of the necessary
bucking. It is ono of the grcutost of the
numerous enterprises boin started
hero , and the citizens should rally to
its support with enthusiasm. It can bo
made to draw 100,000 people to this city
and vicinity next summer if the citizens
say so , voting yes with their pockol-
books nnd their time.

The Berean Baptist church of Coun

Murch , Missouri Valley.
The exercises wore cordial and in
spiring. The Berean church feels new
life and ambition as tbo result of ths
action of the council. Moreover , the
citizens in the vicinity ol tbe chapel
were eminently thoughtful in providing
for the delegates during the day. The
church invokes the Lord's blessing On
them all for their kindness.

Mayor Rohrer is engaged in Delecting
a committee of ton to represent this city
at the coming "deep water" convention
at Denver. It is easy enough to make
the appointments , but not boeasy to find
citizens who will go. The board of
trade has selected three of its members ,
and these , in connection with the ten
appointed by the mayor will make a
first-class showing for Council Bluffs.
According to tbo circular issued by the
mayor of Denver , every city is entitled
to u delegate for 3,000 inhabitants , and
another delegate for each additional
1,000 inhabitants. According to
this , Council Bluffs is entitled lo ever
thirty delegates , but it will bo impossi
ble to secure that number. The matter
is one that intimately concerns this city ,
and it is very ebsontial that it should bo
well represented. Other cities of tbe
state are to send largo delegations ,
among the number being Sioux City ,
Davenport , Burlington and Ottumwa ,
and it will not do for Council Bluffs to
make an inferior showing. Tlio trip
will bo one of pleasure for those who go ,
and it is expected that the convention
will result in great profit to the inland
cities of the country.

Those Wonderful HullrondH.
When the railroad wus first opened
between Moscow nnd St. Petersburg ,
says the Boston Globe , It wus nn object
of great terror to the superstitious
peasantry of ngrthorn Russia , who
thought there must certainly bo some
witchcraft or magic in tin invention
which could make a train of heavy cars
run along without horbos at the rate of
twenty miles an hour , when the speed
of the wagons to which they were ac-
cubtomcd was only three miles an hour ,
or four at the very outside.
Some of them would not oven go
within sight of a train , and made tlio
sign of the cross whenever they hoard
ono rattle past. Others peeped timidly
over the palisade of the railway station
to catch a glimpse of the fearful snioke-
breathing creature , which they be
lieved to be a living monster , and when
the steam whistle sounded they cried
out : "Hear him scrcnmingl lie's hun
gry nnd wants to eat somebody 1" and
took to their heels at once.
But little by little this terror began
to wear uwny. The village priests _ were
seen to go to and fro by train , and the
simple country folk thought what they
did could not bo wrong. By degrees
the peasants thoin olve- > begun to try
the "smoke wagons , " too , and one day
an old man named Ivan I'etrovitch
Maslof , who hud never been out of his
own village till then , made up his mind
to go and have a look at "Mother Mos
cow. " which ull Rubsiun peasants rever
ence as the finest city in the world , and
the real capital of Russia.
Now , it happened thutfttho down ex
press nnd tlio up express met ouch
other at the station of Bologir ( midway
between Moscow and St. Petersburg ) ,
where the passengers of both trains
bloppcd for half an hour to have sup
per. Among the crowd of people
who got out of the other train
Ivan suddenly recognized an old
friend. The two wont into
the refreshment room together , nnd
bad a chat over their steaming tumb
lers of ten and lemon juice , and then
Ivan , without thinking of what ho was
doing , got into bis friend's train in-
