There is grief for another innocent
sucker. Ho went into "The Turf" yes
terday afternoon to "buck the tiger" in
his lair. Before ho came out 7io felt
the animal's claws. He lost what little
money ho had , and then wanted to
whip everybody in the house. In the
midst of his demonstrations ho was
tapped over the head with a club and
his scalp laid open. The crowd which
auickly gathered was dispersed by the
policol but no arrests followed ,
The report that there is any danger
In allowing the man Carter , recently
one of the smallpox victims , to go at
largo is denied by the city physician.
Ho and his children arc now at the res
idence of Mrs. Iluntloy , on Ninth av
enue , and the citi/ens in the neighbor
hood yesterday surrounded the place
and ordered the inmates to stay inside
for fear of being shot. Their "fears of
contagion were allayed , and they then
allowed the parlies more freedom. The
recovered patients have had all their
clothes tliQ"oughly fumigated and dis
infected , and the authorities say all
danger is past.
Alderman Knepnor and Dr. Cook had
a lively tilt at the citv building yester
day regarding the allowing of a bill
presented by the latter against the city.
Ho insinuated that it would have been
allowed had it neon in favor of Kuepher ,
and the little alderman promptly re-
eon led the insult in Queeiibborry style.
The parties clinched , but were promptly
Beparatod by Alderman Lacy. Expla
nations followed , and it was decided
that there was a mihundcrstanding and
that no insult was intended , and the

Testimony as to the ultimate supre

Gentlemen whose associations with and
knowledge of the city give them un
usual opportunities for estim.itiiig the
certainties of the future , continue to
give their reasons for the faith that is
in them. The following interviews
present important points as showing
the advantages of the city in all the
directions indicated.
* *
N. A. KIYI : ,
of Keys Bros. , who are just completing
one of the largest carriage factories In
the west , was asknd :
"What were your reasons for moving
from Ucd Oak to Council Bluffs1:1" :
"Well , we have several reasons. Our
business bad grown so that its necessi
ties required a change of location. We
visited Davenport , Keokuk , DCS Moincs ,
Sioux City and other places in Iowa ,
besides largo places in other .states.
Our decision in favor of Council Blulls
was not without carefully looking over
the ground. What do wo gain by the
change1 ; Well , all the railways which
reach this wo'itorn and northwestern
territory terminate here. Our ship
ping expenses on raw material and
mnnufaturod goods are loss than they
would bo .my where else. The cost of
living hero is very low , which is a ma
terial point with employes , Hero wo
can got just such help ns wo want , and
when wo want U. Why , sir , as a desir
able point for manufacturers Council
Bluffs leads the entire west. I have
conversed with the members of many
agricultural implement linns , and I am
sure that within two years many of the
companion , which now have warehouses
here , will move their factories to this
place. Yon .see wo are in the center of
a rapidly growing territory , and here is
wlioro eastern as well as western manu-
fnctnrorb will come , at least those that
depend upon the west for the consump
tion of their goods. "

i : . A. WIUKIIAM ,
of Wickhatn Brothers , contractors :
" \\Xiiid live times the business in 1J-88
that we did in 18S2. Since the hist dale
there has been a steady increase , and
last year wo did a big business. I tell
you. There was tin immense amount of
building done , but not so much as there
will bo this jcnr. The contracts wo
luuo already made , and the work in
sight convinces us that Council Blufls
will improve more this uar in its busi-
ncsa blocks and residences than it has
overdone before. "
cashier of the Citi/ens' State Bank.
"We st.irted here eight years ago with
a capital of § 76,000. This wo have in-
crcasod to $150,000. nnd have a surplus
of $ 5,000. You know we do a strictly
commercial business , and we are doing
three times the amount that wo over
did before. "
'How did your business last year- com
pare with former vearsV
'You know last year was an 'oft" ' ono ,
but our showed a steady and
healthy increase throughout. "
"What about the future prospects of
the city ? "
"Tho outlook for the city is first class.
From what I know of the future prob
abilities as well as the present condi
tions , I believe there is no place which
jives so good promises of financial suc
cess as Council Bluffs docs. "
* *
of Benson & Carmichacl , Omaha : "We
jegnn investing in Council BlulTsrcalty
list two years ago. At that time there
, verc very few buildings of any kind be-
, wcun Sixteenth street and the river.
That entire tract has been platted and
) laccd on the market. Yes , much has
jcon sold. Most of the purchasers
xiught to build on , and now this entire
tract is dotted all over with cottages
ind other buildings. With Broadway
paved to the river , and the electric
notor line in successful operation , one
ins easy access to either Council Bluffs
or Omaha. "
"Of course you have made some
nonoy ? "
"Certainly. We put our money hero
, o realize on it , and the prospects have
icon more than realized. "
"Then you think Council Bluffs prop
erty .1 good tiling to have ? "
"I don't believe any locality , east or
west , presents the inducements to in-
vottors which Council Bluffs docs. Wo
ire buro to have an East Omaha on the
own side , or a west Council IHulTs , just
ns you wtah. There is wlioro themauu-
acUiring plants will bo. Some tire
ilready there , and othcrx will follow. "

) f the Council 1 ! hill's Carpet Com jinny :
'Council Bluffs is sure to trot thoro. I
itivc always had fath in the ultimate
riumph of energy , push and porbover-
cnco over tlio old-fogyUin and slothful-
iebs of a few doubting Thomases , who
mvo been hiding their money in a
Blocking and their light under abusbol ,
earful that the miirch of progress and
; enoral prosperity would rob them of
, lioir coveted title of 'leading citizens.1
"Wo have boon charged with almost
unucy for our belief in the ultimate
success of an exclusive carpet lioiibo in
so small a town , presuming that a half
nilliou people were necessary to make
t a success. Hud wo taken their ad
vice we would have closed up long ago.
jut wo had faith in Council Bluffs and
ts people. They havij patronised us
Ibornlly and the year just elobod bh'ows
in increase in our sales of over to ! per
sent. The prosperity of the city will
ncroaso. Mark it. All the indications
joint that way.
"I am a firm believer in the future of
Council Bluffs. Why ? Moro reasons
, hau I can now ntuno. First and mnln-
y , on account of the btabillty of its
luslr.cFH men and business institutions.
Men who have been here any considor-
iblo length of time have mndo monoy.
J'lio advantages of the city as a mauu-
acluring and distributing point ; the
ow price of real estate as compare'.1 with
.hat of other western cities ; tlio desir
ableness of the city as a homo , and the
character of the people are some of the
reasons of my faith in Council Bluffs.
Wo have a great future before us. It
cannot bo otherwise.
K. J. DAY ,
dealer in real estate : "Why , sir , the
) ooplo who como hero to buy property
ire actually imrnribod nt the extremely
ow prices iiHked for it , and really , I am
surprised myself. But these prices
won't lust long ; there is v marked ad-
rnncc over the prices of n year ago , ns
well ns in the number and amount of
Miles. There Is n mint of money to bo
mndo in Council Bluffs realty , and these
who invest now will , of course , icnp the
grrntcst benefit. The year opens
splendidly , nnd the city's record of 89
will not only eclipse all previous rec
ords but will exceed our most sanguine
expectations. My sales for January ex
ceed these of a year ngo.
of the linn of Wright , Baldwin & Hal-
done , attorneys : " 1 firmly believe In
the ultimata supremacy of Council
Bluffs. Tlio outside world is just be
ginning to understand and npprocinto
the advantages the city presents for In
vestments. The business record is phe
nomenal. Failures ? Why , there are
nono. In ton years the percentage has
been less than one-sixtieth of ono per
cent. 1'ouucil Blufls cannot help but
grow , all kinds of business is conducted
biifcly and profitably. Manufactures are
sure to come. This is the center of the
great northwest in which a vast empire
will develop. Council Bluffs will bo its
market and center of supplies. The
future of the oHy ? Whyi sir , it cannot
bo estimated and we will live to tee its
greatness. "
.MlHTAT.r ,
member of the city council and board
of health : "Yes , I have had a good
opportunity to watch the progress of the
city closely. Us growth has been won
derful. In the ube of the people's
money 1 bay most emphatically the
council lias been both economical and
judicious. Improvements are going
right ahead. 'Highly-nino will bo the
greatest year Council Bluffs has over
bad. "
"The health of the city ? Why , the
death rate 1ms been less than ono per
cent. Tlio city has novcr had an epi
demic of any sort. This is largely duo
to our excellent climatic conditions.
The air is absolutely free from all ma
larial inlliioncox. These and other ad
vantages tire giving to Council Bluffs a
reputation which will make her tlio
first city in the state. "
"I did not know my.solf until recently
the amount of the horticultural pro
ducts of this immediate country. Why ,
in three townships , contiguous to the
Bluffs , throe hundred people are en
gaged in this business. These men en
gage from one to twenty-live perbons to
assist thorn in their work. Their pro
duct will aggregate $000,000 annually ,
all of which comes to Council Blulls.
Their sales will vary from $1,000 to
io , < )00 ) each. It is an immense bisiness
and is growing constantly. I am now
gathering statistics wb.ich 1 will publish
after awhile , nnd if they don't burnriso
tlio natives , then I am no prophet. "

OIIOIKU : itrnio.
"I have just returned from visiting
eastern cities. I found that there wore
many eager to learn of _ tlio west , and
especially about Council Bluffs. They
all knew about Omaha , but mostof them
have an idea that the Bluffs is only a
little place , located somewhere near
Omaha. They were surprised when I
showed views of buildings here , and
gave them the facts and figures. Coun
cil Blull.s needs to advertise more. A
live representative .should bo sent cast.
All that is needed is to let the capital
ists east know the exact factb , and thev
will jump at the chanecb presented hero
for making money. "

Sudden Death ,
About half past 10 o'clock yesterday
morning C. 15. Voorhis , familiarly
known as "Noil , " an old fireman and
well known resident of this city , was
stricken with heart disease while nt
work on the Merriam block and died
shortly after being , removed to his
homo , " 51 Vine street. Ho was appar
ently well up to the tlmo of his sudden
attack , and tlio grim messenger came
without the slightest warning. Tlio
deceased was thirty-eight years of ago ,
and leaves a wife and child to mourn
his loss. Ho had resided hero all of his
life , and for the past twenty years had
been connected with the fire depart
ment. Ho was ono of the leading mem
bers of the old volunteer company , and
later passed into the paid sorvico.
Until a few months ago ho was actively
connected with the department , being
for years ono of the most faithful and
rcopocted members. The arrangements
for the funeral are not yet complotjd ,
but the old Volunteer Rescue company
will probably take charge ot it.

An alarm oHlre wns tiTr'ncd" in about
o'clock yesterday morning from box HI ,
at the corner of Main and Broadway.
The call brought out the full depart
ment in short order when it was found
that the alarm was a falbo ono. It had
been turned on by some of the Nonpa
reil printers who were on their way
homo , and supposed that a light that
they saw on Main street was caused by
a lire. The large bell at No. 3 hose
house continued to ring until nine
rounds had been sent in instead of four ,
us it should have done. This was
caiibcd by a little defect in the box , that
failed to allow the button to work
smoothly. The continued ringing
caused several people toM gather in the
street , under the improghion that a
largo lire was in progress in the busi
ness portion of the city. The defect
was remedied by the electrician who
soon arrived at the box. ' I
