delegate to each convention , ns the First
precinct of the Third and Sixth wards of
Council UluffB , which had been thrown out
at first , had after the Issue of the official

addition to the twenty-one delegates
authorized by the call an extra delegate bo
chosen to each convention and that the
delegation be Instructed to bring the mat

cure for Pottawattatnle her due representa

The committees then retired to make up
their report. After the report of the com

for the Ensuing Vcnr ,
Yesterday was the closing day of the
Grand Army encampment , but the blaze
of glory which was rather suddenly extin
guished by the wetting It received Wednes
day night did not revive. The morning
was occupied with a business meeting , at
which no business was transacted of any
special public Importunce , and In the after
noon the veterans commenced to Icavo for
their homes. There was a great oxodin on
every train , and the last of the visitors will
probably bo gone by the tlmo this morn-
Ing's trains have left the city. To all ap
pearances the encampment has been a source
of pleasure both to the entertained and the
entertainers. The police had very llttlo trou
ble In keeping order , and there were fewer
acts of lavtlcssncsj perpetrated than Is usu
ally the case where so large a crowd Is
turned loose In the city. The veterans
themselves were exceedingly orderly In
their actions , and It Is to be doubted If any
of them knew that the order of the commit
tee requiring the banner "Welcome , Com
rades , " to bo taken down from In front of
the city jail , wan not compiled with.
At the meeting of the Woman's Relief
corps yesterday morning a delegation was
present from Crocker corps of DCS Molncs ,
and Its leader , Mrs. Mitchell , presented to
Mrs. Evans a beautiful bouquet with a few
words of congratulation upon her re-election
and commendation of work In the past year.
Mrs. Dunn also presented Mrs. Evans a
dainty pin , the Insignia of office of com
pany Q , thereby promoting her from the
ranks to the office of fourth corporal ,
Mrs. Griffiths , delegate at largo to the
last encampment at Indianapolis , read a very
interesting report of the proceedings.
During the afternoon session Commander
Phil Schallcr of the Grand Army Introduced
the new department commander , George E.
Newman , who made a few remarks and
pledged the relief corps the hearty support
and co-operation of the Grand Army of
Iowa. The convention adjourned at C o'clock
until the evening session , when the officers
wore Installed , In the presence of a largo
audience of members and outsiders. The
following Is a list of the officers elected :

The park commissioners seem to have
stood In with the cyclone whose tall end vis
ited Council Bluffs Wednesday evening. But
very little damage was done to property , but
there was hardly a tree In Bayllss park that
did not show the 111 effects of the wind.
Great limbs , some of them a foot through ,
were broken off , and one or two trees were
almost ruined by losing the greater part
of their limbs. Where the stand-In with his

fact that nothing was done excepting what
the park commissioners were Intending to do
themselves as soon as they cold get to It.
Not a tree was ruined but what had already
been marked for the slaughter , and no more
limbs were taken out than should have been

PACIFIC ROADS' DEBTTOYllE GOVERNMENT
i .1 1
Something About the Different BchcmcR
Now Itoforo Congress and Their
Chance * of ,1'aifinRO , De
layed by the Tariff ,
WASHINGTON , Jftno < ' 21. Few more In
tricate and dIDlcult' problems have ever
faced congress than the settlement of the
financial arrangements of the Pacific rail
roads which has engaged the attention of
committees of the house and senate this
session. Two propositions have been ad
vanced and more or less discussed , the
principal a funding plan by which the
status of the Pacific debts Is rea-Jjuitcd ,
the government assuming alljthc bonded
Indebtedness of the companies and requiring
graded payments extending over a tlmo
varying In the different bills from fifty to
125 years ; the secondary plan contemplates
proceedings In the courts against the In
dividual stockholders or their estates , under
the California law , which makes them In
dividually responsible for the debts of the
road. On the other hand Is proposed a
resort to foreclosure proceedings under the
terms of the charters by which tho'govern
ment would secure control of the property
and cither sell or manage It after the first
mortgage had been satisfied.
For the first plan the chairman of the
house committee , Representative Hellly of
Pennsylvania , stands sponsor. Representa
tives Doatner of Louisiana and Clark of
Missouri have Introduced propositions cm-
bodying the second , while the California
members , Geary and Magtilrc , have favored
the last , also advocating that the Hopkins ,
Stanford and Crocker estates and President
C. P. Huntlngton of the Central Pacific
should bo held responsible for their handling
of the government subsidies so far as Is
One objection to the' funding plan which
some members consider fatal Is that the
charter of the Central Pacific expires within
twenty years. They hold that the govern
ment cannot make any arrangement with a
corporation for a longer term of years than
the life of the body , EO that a fifty-year
funding would be Impossible according to
their views. Mr. Huntlngton has held out
the contention that his company would be
able to meet Us obligations of Interest
and semi-annual payments upon the
principal , but the opponents of this
plan argue that It gives the government
no greater assurance of recovering Its claims ,
while It bars It from resorting to any sum
mary methods of foreclosing for Its debt ,
although the funding bills do contain a
clause authorizing the government to take
possession when there Is a default In pay
ment. As for the proceedings against stock
holders under the California law some un
certainties In regard to the application of
that law have been suggested , while the
fact that the Hopkins nnd Crocker estates
have been distributed presents complica
tions , not taking Intp'conslderatlon the senti
ment against menacing , the endowment funds
of the Stanford university , .
Although the funding plan has In the house
committee been narrower ! to a fifty-year term
and a 3 per cent rat 'of'Interest ' been decided
upon , the success tof that plan Is by no
means assured. Sl.y , 'members of the house
committee of flfteenraro known to be opposed
to any funding scheme , jvhile others are un
certain. Altogether the prospect for any
solution of the Pacific railroad question , by
this congress is not considered particularly
bright. ' I
Senator Drlcp , chalrm'a'p of the senate com
mittee on Pacific Railroads , says that the
tariff bill has preventexl , , the consideration
of the Pacific funding ; bills that ha-vo been
sent to that committed. . "There Is a dis
position In both scturtd' and house , " said
Senator Brlce , ' "topass some kind of a
funding bill. In the .house .there have been
hearings with an effoH to get at the facts.
The trouble now Is that no one can realize
the way In which the earnings of the Union
Pacific have been decreased and the reduction
that Is still going on. A funding bill must
bo made pn the basis of the business of the
road. It Is quite likely that It will be nec
essary for the committees of congress to go
over the roads and the books of the com
pany In order to get at all the facts. Owing
to the time taken by the tariff bill and the
way In which the appropriation bills will
crowd the business of the senate , and the
general desire to get through the pressing
business , It Is possible that the consideration
of the Pacific funding bills cannot bo reached
during this session. The desire seems to bo
to get a bill that will secure the govern
ment lien , nnd I think that Is possible. I
won't say that it will extend the time 100
years , or even seventy-five years , but some
adjustment will b'e made. "

WASHINGTON , June 21. Of considerable
Interest to western and southern railroad
men , as well as to settlers along railroad
lines. Is a bljl Introduced by Representative
Mcllae of Arkansas , which the committee on
public lands has under consideration. The
measure provides for a forfeiture to the
United States of all land grants to the rail
roads , opposite the portion of the lines as
originally planned , which were not con
structed and completed within the time
stipulated In the granting acts. f
A total of 165,504,994 acres of public lands
wore disposed of In this way. In most of
the curlier grants a quantity not exceeding
120 sections of land Included within a length
of twenty miles of road , under the condition
that unless the road was completed within
some specified time , generally ten years , no
further sales sliculd be made and all unsold
lands should revert to the government.
Whenever this was extended for completing
roads which had land grants , as congress
was frequently called upon to do , some simi
lar provision was placed In the supple
Mr. McRao holds that It has been the only
purpose of congress to make the time within
which railroads should bo completed an es
sential to government aid and that after the
period of time had elapsed there was no
power to make sales except of the lands us
earned by building roods within the specified
periods. He thinks that In many Instances
construction of land grant roads has been
purposely delayed until the surrounding
country had become" Bo thickly populated
that they might haVtc- been built without
aid. > ( I
Under the practlcoibf the Interior de
partment In permitting- lands to be with
drawn as soon as itnnps were filed nothing
was lost to the railroads ; they had no taxes
to pay and the land wa6 Increasing In value.
Some of the grants tribw called In question
were made nearlytforty years ago , thirty
years have elapsed plnco forfeitures were
made , according to .Uia acts , yet within a
few years these roadsiihuvo been carried to
completion. ji <
Twenty-five railroad ; corporations are
affected by this blll.w It Is estimated by
the Interior department that they have
failed to build 4.6D& miles of road according
to the terms of their charters and that their
land holdings which t would be forfeited
amount to 61,323,000 acres. The Northern
Pacific would bo compelled to forfeit 39,458 , .
000 acres If the bill passed ; the Southern
Pacific , 4,740,000 ; the Oregon & California ,
2.084,000 ; the California & Oregon , 1,740,000 ;
the St. Paul , Minneapolis & Manitoba ,
1.113,000 ; the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis
& Omaha , 1,446,000 , and other roads would
lese smaller holdings ,

CHICAGO , June 21. ( Special Telegram to
The Bee. ) Unless the Pullman company
agrees to arbitrate Its differences with its
men within five days a boycott will be put
on Its cars wherever the American Hallway
Union Is powerful enough to stop them.
This Is the positive assertion made tonight
by Eugene V. Debs and George W.'Howard ,
president and vice president respectively of
the organization with which the Pullman
strikers have connected themselves. Late
this afternoon Chairman Heathcoate at Pull
man came forward and stated that they had
but $1,500 In the relief fund , and the dally
demand upon It exceeds $300. Ho thought
It not best to wait before appealing to the
organization as a whole for aid , which must
sooner or later be given. The announcement
rou-ed the convention in an instant , and a
vote to assess every member of the organiza
tion 10 cents per week was carried with a
Vice President Howard requested every
delegate present to telegraph to his local
union Immediately for Instructions regard
ing a boycott upon the Pullman cars. Not
loss than 200 of the representatives had al
ready heard from their constituents , ho said ,
and In every case It had been favorable to
Immediate action In cutting off the cars.
President Debs followed , urglng-lmmedlato
action , saying that the organization would
never be stronger for such purpose.
A committee of five was thereupon ap
pointed to report back to the convention. It
was learned tonight that the committee will
report tomorrow- favoring giving Pullman
five days to arbitrate. Debs says the con
vention will adopt the report unanimously.
