"tho city Is Impaired and wo foul It our duty

Before any action could bo taken upon the

The Clinutnnqtm Finances.
The Council Blnffs and Omaha chautauqun
stockholders mot Monday evening In the
board of trade rooms to consider the report
of the commlttco to dcvlso a way to pay the
Indebtedness of the association , The plan of
the committee was to Issue (50,000 of first
mortgage bonds. There being but a small portion
tion of the stock of the association represented
It was thought best not to ntcmpt to make
any definite conclusion icgardlng the man
ner of meeting the liabilities of the associa
tion. Aside from the report of the commit
tee tt was expressed by several and Boomed
to meet the approval of most present that if
the parties now holding Hens upon the land
would not accept bonds for the Indebted
ness , thus releasing the land , that to Issue
bonds would prove unsuccessful. The at
torney representing those parties felt posi
tive they would not accept such bonds.
The plan of Belling lots under contracts
suiting the case , und applying the money
thus procured on the Indebtedness , was dis
cussed , but no conclusion was reached.
The advisory committee , otherwise the
committee on ways and means , is strongly
in favor of this plan , and yesterday a survey
of the grounds was made and a plat prepared -
pared for this purpose , and it is regarded by
the officers of the assembly us quite probable
that this plan will soon bo adopted.
The money to pay off indebtedness must bo
raised , nnd this seems to be t'jo only means
at hand which will effectually answer this
tmrpose. The necessity of prompt action in
some direction is apparent to everyone , and
the responsibility devolving upon nil the
friends of the Chautauqua Is to see that
whatever plan is adopted shall bo success
fully carried out. It is expected that lots on
the Chuutauqua grounds will sell readily
wheu put upon the market.
An Excltlnir Chaso.
The Council Bluffs Coursing club held Its
largest and most successful meet since Its
organization yesterday morning. Every
body was invited and all were offered the
same privileges as the regular members of
the club. The result was that fully fifty
lovers of the chase assembled at D o'clock
yesterday morning at Hoywood's bridge ,
three miles east of the city. It was about
twenty minutes later when a hound oponcd
on a fresh trail , and in less time than It takes
to tell It the whole pack had joined him and
the chuso commenced. After a lively run of
about n quarter ofan hour , a half-grown
grey pruirio wolf WftV overtaken and killed ,
and the hounds dashed awav on the trail of
an old one , the mothijt of the first victim.
All of the sportsmcaiiwero eager fo"r a chase ,
something more exciting than the first one
hud proven , but all'bud all the chaslncr they
cared for before thqauarry was finally run
down and killed. , ,
It was undoubtedly onoof thohardostruns ,
considering the time ' 'in the field , that has
takcu place in this section in many a day.
Tbo wolf wus started ut twenty minutes
after 0 o'clock , and'lrwas ' ten minutes of 1
o'clock when she Was * overhauled after a fast
and exciting chase of nearly entity miles.
Duriug the six hours and a Half which the
chase lusted , it wafe'a'hard ' and steady drive ,
aud the hounds 'worked in a manner that
could not have been excelled.
The greater parfofitha chase was within a
circle of about four miles in diameter , but
when the pack got 'toonear aud began to
press too bard the wolf started out on un im
mense circuit. Even that proved disastrous ,
and she finally turned straight away from
homo and began the final dash. She was
overtaken about ton miles from the starting
point , but was not killed , without a fierce
battle , in which several of the hounds were
badly punished. The leader received a ter
rible gash in the throat , and nearly bled to
doatn before assistance could bo rendered.
It was necessary to bring homo several of
the dogs in litters , so badlv used up were
thpy from the exhausting chase and the ter
rific t battle with which it terminated. The
sportsmen were fully satisfied ; indeed , they
would have been natlsilcd with ranch less ,
but were determined to see it through to the
end. Some of the riders were almost as
badly used up as the dogs , but would not
acknowledge It.

made. Merchants may boast of what they display , but cold facts are stubborn things , and to be
convinced one must inspect.
