this city , lils wlfo. The iluy hail boon set.

her wedding clothes , mid It was expected
the corrmony would bo solemnized last even
ing. Hut , as ha1) often been remarked be
fore , them Is many a slip between setting
the wedding day and feeing the parson , mid
on this oecusion onu of thosu very saino slips
occurred ,
Brandt Is still n single man , astonished
and inordmntoly angry It Is true , but never
theless a bnuhclor. The Intended brldo ,
however , carried out her Intention nnd became -
came a wife , but here Is.Just where the hi toll
occurred she Is the wife of another man.
Barely twenty-four hours before the time
sot for her wedding with Brandt she aulotly
packed up her wedding suit , skipped over to
Omaha nnd became the wlfo of Putsy Ful-
Ion , the wall known sporting man , These )
uro the facts In the case , but the why and
wherefore Is as yet a mystery.
The brldo'a mother is roportcd as almost
heartbroken over the nffalr , ns she was not
at home when her daughter loft , and knew
nothing of the situation until the mtir-
rlaga had been consummated. It
is stated that an Into as Inst

friends that she would marry Urandt. She
has been scon on the streets a great tleal
during the past week In Fallen's company ,
and considerable gossip resulted , us hr.r uu-
Kugement with Urandt was known , and a
lengthy article appeared in those columns re
garding the matter , as she wisdismissed from
a position as hairdresser which she hold in
un Omaha establishment on account of her
association with Gallon. Urandt had pre
pared a home for his bride , and was greatly
overcome when Informed of tliu situation In
which mutters now uro. It is reported that
there may bo diftleulty over the murriugo be
fore the c.isu Is finally dropped. The bride
is twenty yours of ago nnd quite pretty , and
has attracted consldorablo attention during
the past few years. The case xvill undoubt
edly bo another nine days' wonder while the
gossips will exhaustively discuss it , whan it
will bo dropped and forgotten.

Worthy of What They Aslc.
The stationary engineers of Council Bluffs
cnmo into the city council at its last meeting
with a very creditable petition asking the
appointment of a resident boiler inspector.
This demand was supported by about , sev
enty-live citizens , whoso attention had been
called to the matter and who ro.ilizuJ its im
portance. The council has started to dis
pose of the matter in the mini nor that all
such things are dlsposed ot referring it to a
committee , where it is carefully buried with
myriads of other petitions whoso unchanged
conditions since pioneer clays uro marvels of
the ombalnier's art. But this petition should
not bo permitted to bo embalmed and not
oven to die. The stationary engineers of
this city are worthy of what they uslc. Their
demand is in line with the progress of the
city and the advancing civilization ot the
timos. It used to bo all right for factory and
mill owners to put In any kind of un old
shell of a boiler that would hang
together under an ordinary steam
pressure and employ a man to
look after it , whoso chief qualification was
the fact that ho had been so unfortunate
that necessity compelled him to work
cheaply. And when , through his Incompo-
tcuc.v and the cupidity of his employers , a
bailer blow up and killed a lot of helpless
people , the calamity was regarded as a dis
pensation of an all wise providence , and a
vague regret that providence didn't ' have
something pleasanter in the way of a dispen
sation , ended the mutter. If the engineer
nnd the mill owners were not among the
killed they were permitted to repeat the
thing. But now there are legal penalties at
tached to such incompotoncy and cupidity ,
nnd grand Juries indict and courts sentence
such pcopio
In Council Bluffs there uro many boilers
that BO fur ns any ofllcial Itnowledgo to the
contrary is concerned , are ready to blow up
nnd destroy human life. . The rapid growth
of thn city und the Increase of manufacturing
industries is adding rapidly to the number of
steam plants and Increasing the necessity
for competent inspection. The council
should grant the prayer of the petitioners at
once and appoint an Inspector whoso services
would bo without cost to the city , ns ho
would DO paid fees for his work. Such men
as J. C. Bixby or John Gilbert would per
form the duties of such an oflico promptly
and onleiontly , and give n needed protection
* < o those whoso lives are endangered by the
aegloot of others.

"Still negotiating. Nothing definite yet.
Expect to know all about it In a very few
days. "
Such , In substance , were the answers of
interested parties yesterday when Interro
gated a : to the situation regarding the Il
luminating question. An examination of the
papers tiled with the county recorder re
vealed among other things a mortgage just
filed by the Council Bluffs Electric U ht
and Power company , in favor of Thomas
Olllcer , president of the company , for the
sum of $ TO,000. The staled consideration for
the mortgage is a debt of 133,074. fil , owed to
OOlcer by the company , and WJ.'OOO addi
tional loaned by Oftlcer to the company for
the purpose , as stated in the mortgage , of ex
tending and improving the plant.
Another matter of record uro the articles
of Incorporation of the Council Bl'iffs Gas
nnd Electric Llcht company , filed on the
29th day of last August. The Incorporntor *
wore Charles J , EosUm nnd Wultor S.
Wright , of Chicago. The Incorporation waste
to ilato from Septembers. 1869 , nnd continue
fifty years. The capital stock wai fixed nt
$ .100,000 , with Iho privilege of Incrennlnif it to
fjOJ,000. Two-thirds of the capital stock
to bo paid up when the company commenced
business. The capital stock was divided
Into 1300 shares of ? KK ) cnoh. of which Mr ,
Wright held 183 , nnd Mr. Easton 145.
After this , on the Tth of October , 1SS9 ,
worn filed the articles of incorporation of
another Council Bluffs On * and Electric
Light company , the Incorporators being
Charles L. Easton and Charles 1 . Plait.
The capital stock Is llxod nt half a million ,
with the privileges of increasing to double
that amount. Walter S. Wright is president ,
Charles 1 * . Plntt , vice president , nnd Chnrlos
L. Easton , secretary and treasurer. The
Incorporation dates from October T , 1889 ,
and is to continue for twenty years.
Several of the sections of these articles
are of special Interest , ns Rotting
forth trie Intention of the company.
One provision Is that the stock of the com
pany may bo used for purchasing the plants
ana franchises of the Council Bluffs Gas
company and the Council Bluffs Electric
Llirht and Power company , ana the fran
chise recently obtained by the Spcrry Elee-
trh : Light company , of Chicago , for lighting
the city.
It will be seen that the company proposes
to do business on n largo scale , us Its ex
pressed purpose Is to purchase the existing
gus and electric light plants , and thus con
trol the light question In cvory particular.
Hon. Gcorgo F. Wright , president of the
gas company , was decided to bo the party
who would Know inoro about the mutter
than anyone else , nnd was accordingly
watted upon by the reporter.
"Is this now company trying to got n mo
nopoly In the Illuminating business , nnd nro
you negotiating with them for the sale of
your gas works ! " was the double-barrelled
interrogatory llred nt him , as a starter.
"I don't know about the monopoly part of
It , imt I am trying to lease them my plant.
What the result will bo , 1 can't tell , " was
the reply.
"What is the situation nt present as you
understand 111"
' [ understand that several propositions
Iwvo been submitted , nnd nre now under
consideration. As you know , the Spcrry
company secured the contract for lighting
the city. Mr. Ofllccr decided that ho want
ed to sell his plant. The Sparry folks looked
into the mutter , and concluded that they
wanted to lease power from his plant to run
their dynamos this winter , so that they
would not have to build a plant until spring.
Mr. Ofllcergavo them ills terms for both a
lease nnd a sale , nnd Mr. Gregory , the rep
resentative nf thecompany , went to Chicago
to consult with them about it. What their
decision is , wo have not yet hoard. Now
then , this now gas company has como into
the field nnd secured a charter , 'rhoy will
manufacture water pas , nnd by the provi
sions of tlielr charter are required to sell It
at $2 per thousand feet , and $1.75 if thulr
daily consumption amounts to 75,000 feet or
over. If wo continue IN the field , we would ,
of course , have to meet their rates , and wo
cannot do this , as coal gas cannot be
manufactured as cheaply as water gas.
Besides , our charter expires next February1 ,
and wo can not afford to make any chances
in our plant. So the best thing for us is to
lease our plant to the now company. There
is room for them to erect n now building by
the side of ours , nnd the mains are already
laid. U would bo a great nuisance to luivo
all our streets torn up ngnln , to lay a dupll-
cute system of gas mains , and if the now
company takes our pluntthis will bo avoided.
Our mains are nil right as far as they go ,
and thuy could extend them wherever they
"As to the respective merits of coal nnd
water gas , I will give you the opinion of gas
men as they have given it to me. They say
that water gas is no cheaper for the con
sumer than coal gas. although the latter
costs more per thousand. More water gas
goes through a burner , and makes in quan
tity what it lucks in price. Mr. Murray , of
the Omaha company , showed mo his books ,
nnd stated that families which had been
consumers for live years , are paying him
more per month for water cas than they had
tor coal gas to do the same illuminating.
"We do not want to put in a new plant ,
and for this reason I am waiting to hear
from tlio new company. They have made n
proposition to the Spcrry company nnd to its
ofllcors , for the purchase of the franchise of
the former and the plaut of the latter , und
as soon ns an answer is received we will
know something definite. An answer is ex
pected to-morrow , as Mr. Gregory was to
telegraph as soon as a decision was reached.
Several propositions have been made , und
there are several changes involved. "
Jo\vi I-1fill ! Avenue.
The electric motor company is delivering
the material for the transfer extension along
the proposed route down Fifth nvenuo nnd
Twenty-first street. It was stated a few
days ago that the company would not build
down this street if the properly owners in
sisted on their paying for ttio paving , out -it
seems that the company has decided to build
the line under any consideration. There are
but throe blocks of Fifth avenue now paved
from Pearl to Eighth streets and these
will bo the only part of the route in contro
versy for the present. The company will
build the line and let the court decide
whether or not they will have to pay for the
paving. Work will be commenced on the
line as soon ns the Pierce street loop is com
pleted , which , tlio superintendent states ,
will require about two weeks. The Pierce
street line will bo over unpuvcd streets for
the greater portlou of the distance , nnd
track laying will proceed rapidly , as the ties
will be placed upon the top of the ground ,
necessitating but little work in the way of
grading. Both this and the transfer line
will bo completed and in running order before -
fore winter sots in , and the bobtail cars and
antiquated mules will then bo placed on the
retired list. The new machinery nt the
power house will bo in running order in n
few days , when the electric cars will be
started on the Pearl street line.
Hay of the Murder Trial.
The murder case of the State vs Brooks
was culled in the district court yesterday
morning. After spending the greater part of
the forenoon in arguing nnd arranging pre
liminary matters , the work of empaneling
n Jury was commenced. Besides the regular
piincl , there is n special venire of forty irom
which to select , nnd it i" predicted that an
other special venlro will bo ordered before a
Jury is flnnllv secured ,
U'licn .court adjourned at noon Prosecut
ing Attorney Organ hud examined four
jurors for cnuso , and when last evening's ad
journ inont was taken Colonel Dalley was en
gaged in the same procedure. It Is regarded
as certain that it will require all of to-day ,
und possibly longer , to secure u Jury.
Brooks , the prisoner , was brought into
court in the morning , nnd ahovycd the effects
of his six months' Incarceration. Ho is some
what thin , but does not appear nervous or
Ho Is positive that ho will bo acquitted , and
expresses no concern or worry about the mat
ter. Ills father was seated by his side yes
terday , and will doubtless assist Colonel
Dailoy in selecting n Jury. The court room
was crowded und considerable interest is
manifested In the cuso. The Indications nro
that thcro will bo no empty souts while the
trial lusts.

Ono Man's llccollnctiuii ol' a Fearful
Iowa Winter.
Tno pcopio ofi central and northern
Iowa will long rompmbor the horrible
winter of 1872-7 $ , when thcro was such
dire sutloring among thorn from the un
precedented cold. I was in that coun
try then , and I haveia very vivid recol
lection of the rigors of the season , says
a writer in the Philadelphia Record. I
was living at the town of Adol , Dallas
county. The country is railroaded now
and it will never be possible for such
scenes to bo Witnessed there again.
In those days there were no railroadn ,
passenger transportation being by stage.
During the wintjer tlio cold was so se
vere that quito a number of stage
drivers wore frozen to death , in
Adel there wasa _ famine of fuel , and
it became a serious question what the
people would do. After nil the coal and
wood was gone resort was had to corn in
the oar , which cost 7 cents a bushel. It
looked sinful to mo to see such a val
uable food product blazing in the llros ,
but thorp was no help for it. Coon
River , whence wood was usually brought
to Adel , was forty miles away and the
trip was out of the question in the prevailing -
vailing temperature. Pretty soon , however -
over , another dilllculty arose. The corn
was pone. Then in their extremity the
pcopio began burning their houses.
This was done by lot. For instance ,
my next neighbor and I drew lots to see
whose house should bo burned. lie lost ,
and so wo dismantled his houbo and
burned it for fuel , while he and his
family moved into my house with mo.
If I had lorft the rule would have worked
