NEWS FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS
Raising the Assessment of the Motor Com
pany Discussed by the City Council.
FACTS AND FIGURES FROM MR , M'CABE
Ilcnunnn Why tlio Compnnr'ii

ment * Mudo by Ilotli Siiien , but
No Action \Vn Taken.
The city council met last evening as n
board of equalization to consider the assess
ment of the motor company. U was an ad
journed meeting , it having boon decided sev
eral evenings ago to take It up Friday in
order that the counoll might take advantage
of whatever action might bo taken by the'
joint meeting of committee ! ) la Omaha last
Thursday. There were quite a number of
citizens present to witness the combat be
tween the representatives of the people and
a lolof aldermen who travel on passes.
I.oiulrtl with Flgurr * .
James McCabe was the first and the
principal speaker of the evening. He came
loaned to the brim with figures , and figures
which have never before been presented to
the citizens. He covered not on lj the entire
cost of the motor company's plant , but the
amounts that were expanded in running the
trains , the receipts and the profits up to
December 31 , 1839. The figures which
covered the first fourteen months of the
motor company's operations after the day on
which the line was first opened to the pub
lic , had been prepared by an expert em
ployed by the company.
Mr. McCabe commenced by stating tint he
was In favor of Iho plan that Is so generally
adopted , of assessing firms and corpm'.itlous
at a lower rate thin real estate owners , pro
vided these firms stand In the position of
semi-public enterprises. Uut he thought the
motor company had been very fur from
standing in this light < and he then went on
to show why , the reasons ho broueht forth
with reference to paving between the tracks
and the like being well known to the uublle.
\Vlmt It UuHt to llullit tlio lliltlKc.
He then produced a pile of manuscript
which he proceeded to lay before the board.
It was a statement of the cost of construct
ing the plant of the motor company. It read
as follows :
Cost of constructing bridge. $302,460

Accrued InlL'iust 8,000
Grand total $055,305
At the Item in the above list mentioned as
"stocks and shares" Mr. McCabu mane a
pause to explain. "A few weeks after
actual operations were commenced by the
company-thoy went to the east and paid the
sum of $ . * i.H)7 ( ) ) for the franchise of the old
Council BluiTs street railway company ,
\vhich came into existence at the
time when mules were the motive
power. They then entered into a con
tract with themselves whereby all the
Hues thereafter built should bo
built under that charter. It was the $55KX ( )
bonus which you taxpayers voted them with
which they bought that old franchise which
they now shove in your faces and claim exon
erates them from carrying out any of the
provisions of the charter which you 'suu-
posed gave them authority to run ut all. "
He then read the statement of credits as
Capital stock $1.500.000
Next came the statement of the expense
of running thu road for the first fourteen
months. Every item of expenditure was
given in detail , and most of them were m
comparatively small amounts. The grand
total for the entire period was $50,1144.
J'ItrnlUK:4 : : oT tlto Cotiipiny.
The statement of the earnings of the com
pany for the fourteen months was as fol
Earnings from passengers $134,034
llrldge tolls 37,254
Grand total $172,010
The cost of constructing the plant as given
above represented only "the IJroadway or
main line. Mr. McCabe in the following fig
ures showed the cost of the rest of the lines :
Pearl and Slain street lines J 17,778
Kust Broadway and I'luico street 8,744
SIMueiith street 221
Grand total ( Including everything
spent up to Dvctiiiibur 31 , 1880) ) . $782,868
"Of 31,000 that WAS actually put Into the
enterprise , " ho continued , ' -nearly tr/O.OUO
was spent in buying the mule car franchise.
In the actual construction of the plant the
stockholders didn't really put in overJIO.OOO ,
and with that $10.000 as a starting point
they have been paying 3 per cent dividends
on their stock , which has been watered to
an extent of $1,600,000. "
At the conclusion of Mr. McCabe's speech ,
which took over an hour and a half , Assessor
Hardln filed a written protest against rais
ing the assessment of the motor company ,
stating that he bad made the assessment in
good faith , and to raise the assessment of
the motor company without making a corresponding
spending increase in tlio assessment of
banks and wholesale houses would bean in-
justlco to the motor company and cause ex
pensive litigation , which would doubtless in
tho'cnd provo disastrous to the city's hopes.
Spencer Smith made a short speech in
which ho called the attention of the board
to the fact that according to the decisions of
the supreme court the board had iho right
to assess the stock and the property also ,
without laying themselves open to the
charge of making double assessments ,
Alilfiriniiu .Smith's lo ltlon.
Peter Smith , who has been riding upon a
pnss over since ho was ele-jted to thu city
council , got Into a prolonged argument with
McCabe as to the right of thu board to raise
the assessment.Ve'ro not supposed to
Know anything about any grievance that you
private citizens may have against the motor
company , " said ho ,
McCabe Dually was called upon to explain
that the ralsmir of tlio irotor company's
assessment would not 'make It necessary to
raise banking houses and wholesale houses
assessments in a corresponding ratio , "for , "
ho said , < lyou can't compare the motor com
pany with such Institutions. These institu
tions are all assouscd at a lower rate than
real estate , because they are supposed
to bo hnlplng to build up thu
city. Th'o motor company has been doing
ovcry tnluir It could to tear down thu city ,
throwing it Into expensive Jitlgatton at every
turn of thu road. It can , therefore , lay no
claim to any favor such us is extended to
mcrcantllu establishments , and should
therefore bu assessed on thu same basis as
real estate owners. "
The livening of talk i Id not result In any
action , for by McCalw's advice It was de
cided to postpone It until the motor company
has had any opportunity to fulfil Us promise
made at the recent Joint meeting of the city
councils of thu two cities and formulate a

T. J. Evan Arcucs In Favor of the Ulrec-
BE3 * * tor ' rroponltlun.
T. J. Evans , who has taken an active part
In the movement to compel the motor com
pany to adopt a 5-ccnt rate batween the
two cities , was asked yesterday what he
thought of the proposition made by the
motor ofllcials at the mectlmr in Omaha last
Thursday with reference to the purchase of
the motor company's bridge by the cities of
Omaha and Council Bluffs.
"Thu proposion has some merit,1' was his
reply , -'and how much merit depends upon
the value of the bridge and the terms upon '
which the company will part with it. The
total cost of the bridge , approaches , slough '
bridges and roadways connecting was $401-
COO. The same could bo constructed today
for less money , owing to lower prices on
steel. The life of the present bridge floor is
nearly gone , that of the trestles perhaps ha'.f
gono. If the company would renew these
the property would be as good as now. I i
There is a llfteen.year mortgage upon the
bridge , the Omaha & Council Bluffs lailway ,
line , which runs from the river to the corner
of Broad way and First street , and the car
and power house plants. The rest of
the lines belong to the Council Bluffs Street
Uailway company and are bonded separ
"Let Omaha and Council Bluffs assume
and guarantee such proportion of the fifteen-
year bonds as will cover the cost of tlie
bridge , and impose a faro on wheelago sufll-
cicnt to keep the floors in good condition.
Sulliciont rental can be obtained from street
car lines to meet the interest on the bonds.
Thus the two cities would have practically a
free bridge and a 5-cent faro and the bridge
would cost the city nothing so long as tncy
keep It bonded.
"The refusal of the Omaha and Council
Bluffs Kail way and Bridge company to
make a fi-ccnt fare will result in uniting the
two cities In the project of building a free
bridge at the foot of Farnam street. But in
all future negotiations between the two
cities and the motor company it must bo
understood that a frco bridge will not and
cannot bo free for street cars which carry
passengers over it for money. "

with the instructions of the court , and tlio
contents were not kuown until yesterday |

when district court was-convened. It was
then found to bo for the plaintiff , giving him
just what ho asked for. His judgment ,
with the interest thnt'lias ' accrued since last

Yesterday morning another insurance

carried an insurance policy of $ .2,000 In the
Catholic Mutual. Ho took cold ono night
while answering a night call and soon after
died from the effects of the exposure. After
his ue.-tth it was found that ho had allowed
the premiums to lapse , although his friends

the death of such member.
Its sources of income and profit are the
Biune , the profits to matured policies and
bonds being derived from those remain
ing in force and those which are surren
dered and lapsed , and in the Perpetual
Maturity Binding company , these bone-
Ills are received by the persistent bond
The company issues Us bands at
$1,1)00.00 ) each UJKIII a' first payment or
purchase price of $10.00 and monthly In
stallments thereafter of & 1.2.5 , malting
annual payments of $15.00 , of which
* 12.00 ana all other incomes are need In
maturing its bunds. As this amount is
greater thiui that used by the principal
old line companies' In payment
of death claims , It Is evident that
at least na much , and moro
must bo done in the , maturing of its
bonds , than is done by tuo&o companies
In maturing tholr policies. The esti
mated average life of insurance policies
is abojt seven years , and taking this
average as the life of its bands , the cost
of u band to the bondholder would bo
$115 ; but oven if carried for ten years ,
the total cost would not exceed $10. ( !
The insurance statistics of seven of the
principal old line companies , however ,
show that for a period of thirty-one
years prior to IS'.ll ' the average cost of
matured death claims therein per 1,000
on all issued insurance was but $54. At
a cost of double this amount , or moro ,
the investment is an attractive one.
These are facts which it is well worth
the while of every person who would bo
tempted by such a proposition to inves
The method of maturing its bonds is
equitable and fair to all. As issued they
are numbered consecutively 1 , 2 , .1 , etc.
For a time they wore matured in this
order , but a multiple has now been in
troduced and in used twice between each
consecutive number , of which the fol
lowing is an illustration : No. 1 , then 4 ,
then 8 ; No. 2 , then 12 , then 10 ; No. 3 ,
then 20 , then 24 ; No. 4 being the second
number or bond paid , the next is 28 , then
32 , etc. In this manner bonds possess
ing a higher number tire advanced to an
equal standing and nro paid alternately
with those of a lower number. The
order thus derived is fixed , and can be
varied by no contingency. The company
is on the safest and most substantial
basis for the performance of all its
agreements. The fully paid cap
ital atock is treble the greatest amount
of the bondholders money in its hands
at any timo. As soon as $1,000
is accumulated from all its sources of
profit in the trust fund , it is immediately
paid out on tlio maturing bonds. This
obivates the most dangerous of all
obstacles to the permanence and success
of co-operative or mutual financial or
ganizations , viz. , the piling up of im-
menco reserve funds to tempt the weak
ness or cupidity of irresponsible olliccrs
and trustees. In addition to this it is
claimed by the company that while these
accumulated funds in tontine , or in
vestment insurance , bring returns only
of from 3 to 5 pel * cent , by paying the
eaino out , as It does , in amounts of
$1.000.00 to its bondholders , ' they are
immediately invested at an income of
loss than ten , and in most cases a much
larger rate of return.
Tlio company in organized and man
aged by men known in their own city
and elbowhoro , and highly indorsed as
responsible and capable , which is fully
substantiated in the unprecedented suc
cess which it has already attained.
