The great Henry-Evans cattle case nnd Its
$ S2,000 has nt last been submitted to the court
after a trial of ono full week , and has been
taken under advisement. The closing argu
ment was made by Judge Hubbard for the
plaintiff , concluding about 11 o'clock yester
day. The only sensational features of the
case occurred just after it closed , The cause
was certain statements made by Judge Hub-
bard In his argument. Said ho , "Tho defense
hns cone outsldo the case In attacking the in
tegrity nnd personal character of my client
and I shall also go outsldo tt in showing how
far superior to this defendant is my client ,
the plaintiff. " The attorney then referred to
n case which was tried in Mills county n few
days ago in which the defendant in this case
was also defendant. Ho stated that the de
fendant denied his slgnnture to a check and
was Impeached. Ho scored Mr. Evans deep
ly and the latter jumped to his feet and re
quested his attorney , Colonel Sapp , to put a
stop to the onslaught of the opposing coun
It was of no use , and Judge Huhbnrd kept
on until ho was through and had said all ho
wanted to say. As noon as ho was seated
Mr. Evans walked over to him and de
manded to know if ho was going to "tnko
back that assault. " "Not by a d d sight , "
replied the doughty judge.
"If you don't , I will make you , " said
Evans , who was fairly white with anger ,
laying his baud on the shoulder of the at
"Tnko your hand off my shoulder nnd go
to hades , " thundered the latter , who by this
time was In a furious heat. "Don't come
near mo , for 1 don't want to have anything
to do with you. "
"I will see you when you leave the court
room and wo will settle this then , " said
Evans with an ominous glaro.
"Why don't you do It why don't you do it ,
nnd not keep talking about 1U" inquired
Hubbard , as ho pulled himself together , and
the muscles developed by years nt the forge
bulged out his coat sleeves , in strange con
trast to the gray hairs of the legal veteran.
Judge Dccmor , who had been intently
watching them , was evidently on the point
of calling on the bailiff to interfere , when
Mr. Evans turned and walked back to his
aldo of the table , whore ho engaged in an
unlimited discussion with his attorney , freely
interspersing it with gosturcs-of his clenched
fist. He shortly afterward left the court
room. Judge Hubbard stopped to collect a
few papers , and then followed. Evans had
disappeared and that was the end of what
promised to bo n very exciting incident.
The spectators fully expected to see a
pitched battle nnd ono enthusiastic on-looker
offered odds of two'to ono on the ex-black
smith. The case was submitted and the
Tlio case of Cowles vs Ilarle , Haas & Co.
was then commenced. The plaintiff peti
tioned for the appointment ; of a receiver for
the llrm , in order to secure money which ho
hud in the firm as a partner. The plaintiff
was tho.only witness examined , and court
adjourned for dinner. Before it reconvened
in the afternoon , the case had been settled.
The defendants paid the plaintiff $1,100.
which lie took in full payment for his inter
est in the concern.
The divorce case of Wilbur vs Wilbur was
then taken up , nn'd submitted. None of the
other cases in the day's assignment were
ready for trial , nnd court adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning. No business of any
kind was transacted during the day before

A City Hall Needed.
Tlio aldermen are strongly In favor of
erecting a new city hull. At a meeting of
the council , hold Monday evening , the mayor
advised the building of a vault In the judge's
room , clothe superior court room , for the
purpose of storing the moro valuable records
of the court and council. As it Is now , there
is absolutely no protection whatever for
these records and papers , and a flra would
destroy a vast amount of property that could
never bo replaced , mid the value of which
cannot bo estimated. These papers are lying
'scattered around wlierovor thcro Is room for
Said the city clerk yesterday : "There nro
moro of these books and papers than could be
piled into the superior court room , nnd the
city has no vault of any kind whatever in
which to Btoro them. There is no protection
from fire , and aslao from that the public has
free access to them at nil times. It is impos
sible for the clerk to keep watch of them all ,
and there is nothing to prevent evil-disposed
parsons from taking away whatever pleased
their fancy. It is quite a serious situation
for ono who fully understands it , and the
city Is almost certain to pay heavily for this
carelessness , unless something is soon done
to remedy it. "
Said the mayor , "Our present quarters are
altogether inadequate. A now city hull is
ono of the cr.vlng needs of Council Bluffs ,
and I would bo glad to see the matter agi-
tilted. All of the city ofliccs should bo to
gether , and then city business could be trans
acted by the public with somodegrco of com
fort. The building should contain ofliccs for
every oftlcial , council chamber , superior
court room , police headquarters and central
station. The present city jail is condemned
by every grand jury , nnd it certainly Is any
thing hut what it should be. The city has
ample ground on Bryant street , upon which
to erect a building that would bo a credit to
It , A splendid building could bo erected for
from 50,000 to ? ! > q,000 , nnd bonds could ho
issued for the necessary amount , to run as
long as desired. The (1 ( mill bridge tax'wlhl
bo over with after this year , and the people
could apply any desired amount on the pay
ment or oily hall bonds. A special election
can bo called , at any time , to vote on the
question , if the people want to bo heard in
the matter. If they say they want a new
city hall , they can havn it. "
