a City Engineer Tostevln put In the greater
portion of his time yesterday In his office
in the city building , returning earnest
thanks to the city council for the change
In the methods ot assessing the cost of
public Improvements to the abutting
property on the streets Improved. Ho has
been engaged In making the maps , sched
ules nnd plats required by the new
law , using all of his spare time for
the past six weeks. He worked the greater
part of the day yesterday and until after
9 o'clock each evening during the week on
the South First street schedules , and the
work Is still Incomplete.
The extra work Is demanded by the
change In methods of assessing caused
by the ordinance adopted last year for
the purpose of relieving the city of all
direct liability for grading , curbing , paving
and sewering the streets. Heretofore pay
ment for this work has been made by the
city Issuing bonds and guaranteeing their
payment. These bonds have stood as a
debt against the city , while In reality they
simply represented the debt of the property
benefited , and the city only assumed the
obligation of collecting the special assess
ments. On May C of last year an ordinance
was adopted in the city council providing
for the Issuance of certificated against the
property. This ordinance was subsequently
strengthened by the adoption cf several
others , the council following the same gen
eral plan adopted by Pea Molncs and other
Iowa cities. The ordinances were adopted
In accordance with provisions of charter
laws passed by the legislature. While
the new method does not we-aken In the
least the commercial value of the special
assessment certificates. It relieves the city
of an apparent obligation that shows dlsad-
vantagcously In the debt statements.
In addition to this apparent benefit the
now method makes a material saving to
the taxpayers by removing the necessity for
a lot of expensive publications in the newsPapers -
- Papers required to make the bonds legal.
Hut while It eaves the taxpayers some
money. It adds a great deal to the work
in the odlccfl of the city engineer and city
clerk. While only a small amount of pav
ing or sewering U done at a time , the In
crease Is not great enough to require extra
help , but If a large number of streets were
In progress of Improvement the work on the
L maps and schedules would be greater than
y- the present force could take care of. As
an Illustration of the difference between the
old method and the new. It can be shown
that the repaying of Pearl and South First
streets Involved more work in the otllces of
the engineer and clerk than all of the pav
ing done In any one year when the city was
suffering from the cedar block Insanity.
Hut , notwithstanding all this , the now
plan Is highly commended by every ofllclal
nbout the city building. It will enable- the
city to repafc all of the cedar block streets
without Increasing the apparent Indebted
ness to the extent of a dollar. The cer
tificates become a Hen against the property
benefited , and the city only acts as an agent
for the collection of the special assessments.

Great Is the "Burlesque Circus. " Its
magnitude was not measured by the Immense
stretch of canvas nor the unrivaled parade
which was postponed because of the snow
yesterday morning. Its Immense size con
sisted In the excellence of the performance
taken as an entirety. From the opening
medley of the well-arranged first part to
the closing bout between the famous pugil
ists , James Corbctt Wright and Deb Fltz-
slinmons Grlinth , the largo and fashlonabc
audletico was kept In a state of pleasant ex
pectancy and delight. The Field club fully
redeemed Itself for falling to get up a win
ning or any other kind of foot ball team this
season and also wiped out any doubt as to
Its financial success.
In the parlors of the Metropolitan club
was given the rehearsal of a minstrel show
that the club had under preparation , but
which was changed under the alluring elo
quence of Messrs. t'pson and Downs , two
stranded circus men. Drs. Treynor and
Macrae appeared In their native guises as
these unfortunate showmen , and they had
very little of the chameleon racket to work
to both act and look the parts. Mr. Barnes
of Now York appeared In the breach and
the switch from the burnt cork to the saw
dust ring Is arranged , through the president
of the club , George Wright , nnd the men
dicant public entertainers. Uut In order
that the club and the audience should not
lose any of the excellent minstrel per
formance a rehearsal was given , which
proved In fact a highly finished entertain
There have been bones and tamboes and
end men befote , but they were no smoother
than the following burnt cork artists that
rattled. Jingled and sang last night : W. S.
Hlgdon , Tom Askln , Henry Paschal , W. L.
Waskell , W. L. Douglass , Tom Farnsworth.
Charles Paschal and Lloyd Griffith. They
oven surmounted the frantic efforts of the
orchestra to down their melodies. The open
ing medley made a decided hit and put the
audience In the best of humor. "Come 'Long ,
You Darkles , " "See Where de Twinkling
Stars Am Shining , " "Don't Be Cross , " "Ar-
rah ! Go On ! You're Simply Tazln' , " "Oh ,
Julienne ! Oh , Julienne ! " "In the Shadow of
the Pines , " "Ma Angellne" and "Hastus on
Parade" followed In delightful harmony ,
making ono of the best arranged musical
groupings of fun and sentiment presented
hero for a long time. It was rendered by
ttio entire company and the chorus was
strong and Impressive. W. S. Illgdon Is an
old-timo favorite and be again delighted the
audience with "Yo Baby's Comtn' to Town , "
"Tho Old Love , " sung by Charles S. Haver-
stock : "Let Me Take My Place at Homo
Again. " by Ned Mitchell , and "Onco In a
Purple Twilight. " by Phil Paschal , were
all pleasingly rendered , forming a trio of
ballads that could not bo Improved upon.
And the end songs perhaps struck the tem
per of the house even more effectively than
these. Tom Asklns led "Parson Johnson's
Chicken Brigade" to a decided and humor
ous finish. "Ma Angellne" showed Brer
Douglass to bo a dangerous , warlike and
musical nigger. One of the gems of tno
evening was brought out In the quartet , >
"Down on the Ohio , " by Messrs. Mitchell , I
Attchlson , Haverstock and Tcrrlngton. This ;
dashing impromptu minstrel part came tea
a glorious finish through the swelling notes
of Branlgan's band by the end men , assisted
by the entire company and the aforesaid
ONLY SHOW ON EARTH.
The circua was all extra and showed the
generosity of the promulgators of the even-
Ing's entertainment. It caruo In two
"spasms and a tit ( or fight ) , " as announced ,
and "Introduced more untried talent and at
tempted more unheard of featured than any
circus that will ever appear In Council
Bluffs this winter. " There were Kubcs , lots
of them. They went against the wheel of
fortune , whose presiding genius was Will
Bcebe. Tney tackled Ed Trautman's red
lemon and Jake Hess' alluring falsetto from
the ticket wagon gathered them In. If the
laundry business plays out Mr. Douglass will
flnd ready employment with any circus as
barker for the sideshow. No assemblage of
thin , thick , India rubber , strong , ossified or
sword-swallowing specimens of humanity
had a better cxpatlator. And he was ably
seconded by Gcorgo Hughes In explaining
the "greatest aggregation of wonders ever
exhibited outaldo of Mrs. Jarley's Wax
Works. " Many of his subjects were slightly
the worse for long wear , but they stood upon
the high and mighty pillar and showed
themselves "for the benefit of the public
and the only show on earth where the gh'ost
walks every Saturday night. " The dainty
contour of the Circassian beauty was cther-
lalUed In the person of Dave Stuart. From his
daluty waist line to his magnificent blonde
hair he was the wonder or all. George
Mayne made a striking sideshow freak as
the wild man from Africa , who once ruled
over half the- dark continent. George Wright
rivaled him , however , as the bluo-ncued
ouraug outang. j
The scene outside the great spread of can
vas was well put on. Within could bo heard
the growls of the captive monsters from the |
jungles of Asia and Africa. Luckily they ,
were not fed. Finally all the farmers , farm '
hands , tent hands , four-ln-hands , full hands , ]
large hands , small hands , handy hands , lone !
hands , deck hands , sugar cured hams , ham !
fata and others were corralled Into the tent' '
and the sideshow vanished and the great nix- '
teen-foot ring appeared. The aforesaid I
hamU occupied the bleachers. Despite the
desperate attempts of the band , there was '
a hush. The curtains In the distance parted
and the grand entry was on. In truly pro
fessional style. In Jaslied eight of the most |
daring riders that had not signed for last
season. The stage had been specially
strengthened for the occasion. All eques
trian feats of the past were eclipsed. For
weeks these animals had been fed on special
fodder and their riders proved to be verita
ble centaurs. They were Messrs. Lloyd
Grllllth , Ned Mitchell. Dr. Treynor. Paul
DeLong. Tom Farnsworth , Dave Stewart ,
Melvln Gould and Eugene Ingoldsby.
Ono of the very latest was vocalized by
the merry old clown , Mr. Jerry Hopper ,
alla Douglass. The audience wss requested
to join In the chorus and did so with a will.
By the aid of a big stick , a pulley and the
frightened stage hands , some great balancing
was ( lore by High Moon Wright and Little
Allrlght Farnsworth. To the delightful
strains of ono of Strausslski'A waltzes Slgnor
Herrinamibkl Douglass , assisted by liumbskl ,
who failed to appear , being located under the
stage , gave a weird exhibition of parlor
majlckukl. The Sponge brothers gave an ex
ccllent exhibition of tumbling. This was no
| eke and wag labeled I eat the audience make
a mistake. Sadow. the strong man. appeared
ind lifted everything except hla salary and

ivrformance , assisted by the bend. But

as well as black end man and the wire
anchor that held him failed to break and he
came ilpwn tafcly.
Mr. Altcheson made considerable fun as
the largo and expansive clown , assisted by
Jumbo wea never In It with Lorena of the
BurleKque Circus. " Lloyd Or I filth as the
front legs and Tom Ankln as the bln < i Itga

showed the excellent hypnotic power he hat
over brute creation and the great AaUtlc
H-auty obeyed his every command , But It
remained for the queen of the arena , Mado-
taoUelle M corool and "Spot , " her trained
and Imported Arabian thoroughbred , to bring
the bleachers and the audience up to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm. Paul TorrltiR-
ton proved a decidedly charming Italian
cqutfltrlan danausc and never rubbed a spot
from the Arabian charger , who shared the
equestrian honors with Fatlnltza , the great
trick donkey from the den of the Knights
of Ak-Sar-Dcn , by permission. M. Awanam
Edemunap , Mr. Phil Paschal , made a daz
zling "King of Clubs. " notwithstanding the
fact that the gentleman Is always supposed
to be strictly a paper affair.
"The crowning effort of the show , a mill
between Corbett and FItzstmmona , a feature
which cost the club $140,000 , " showed that
the Investment was a good one. Honest ( ? )
John Kelly Hughes proved an Impartial
referee. The Paschall brothers held down the
opposite corners for the principles and W.
D. Beebe ( .nil Htalng Attorney Hess did the
rubbing. The flpht was stopped at the end
of the third round by the police , with hon
ors even. Wright and Griffith will finish the
affair after this evening. This bloodletting
concluded the great show , which was re
peated In the evening.

Tried ( o Cheat ( In- Toll Man.
Klchard Bady , a stockman of Sliver City ,
who Is reputed to bo worth over $50,000 ,
got Into a serious difficulty late Wednesday
night that will cost him some money nnd
trouble. Bady bought a bunch of feeding
cattlu In the South Omaha market Wednes
day and drove them to this city during the
evening. When he came to the motor
bridge he Informed the toll man that there
were only eighty-one head of cattle In the
bunch. The toll man was something of a
Ruesser himself , and asserted his belief that
there were over 100. and proceeded to count
them. Bady objected to this , and offered
to pay for eighty-one. The offer was de
clined and Bady and his men stampeded the
stock and sent them over the bridge without
paying a cent. Superintendent Dlmmock
was notified by telephone and with the
assistance cf a number of Council Bluffs
officers succeeded In corralling the cattle on
Lower Broadway. Bady still refused to pay
and was very abusive. The cattle were
driven to the yards of a feed barn and
counted. The count showed there were 140
head. An Information was filed at mid
night and a warrant was Issued for the
arrest of Bady. He could not be fcund after
the cattle were taken possession of. During
the day yesterday an-agent representing him
appeared at the barn and paid the toll and
the costs of keeping the cattle over night.
j Bady will bo arrested and prosecuted. Ho
was not to bo found at Silver City yesterday.

WEBSTER CITY. la. , Nov. 2C. ( Special
Telegram. ) A sensation has been caused at
Eagle Grove , north of this place , by the
arrest of Jerry Fitzmaurlce , president of the
First Notional bank of that city , and Hugh
Donley , cashier , on the charge of embez
zlement. J. 0. Lines and wife left Eagio
Grove some days ago to escape the execu
tion of several judgments. They did not pay
about $60 in rent to Mr. Fitzmaurlce. Ho
tried to settle with them at Fort Dodge ,
where they had gone , but finally had Judg
ment rendered against them for $10. Mr.
Lines had $100 deposited In President Fltz-
maurlce's bank , and held a certificate of de
posit for It. Cashier Donley con
sulted the bank's attorney , and
was told to take the certificate
as security when It came In. Ho noti
fied the banks at homo and at Fort Dodge
not to cash It and waive It. Yesterday F. L.
Walton presented It and asked for the
money. Donley told him there was only
$ CO due on It , and explained the judgment.
Walton refused the $00 and asked for the
certificate returned. This Donley refused , but
offered to give him a receipt for It. This
was finally given and the parties separated.
Then Walton went before a justice of the
peace and swore out a warrant for both Don-
ley and Fitzmaurlce on a charge of em
bezzlement. The president and cashier were
placed under bonds to appear at the prelim
inary trial next Tuesday.

PAIUS , Nov. 2C. The IturMiix of the
Chamber of Deputies today fleeted a com-
mlttco to examine the bill providing for a
renewal of the privileges of tTte Bank ot
Franco. The committee IB understood to bo
favorable to the measure. ,
At the meeting of the Chdnlbor of Dep
uties today there was a large attendance
on the resumption of the debate on the
school system , the government having nar
rowly escaped defeat yesterday In resisting
the demands of the radicals 'for the Imme
diate Installation of female -lay teachers In
the C.500 elementary schools , which are
still In the hands of the Sisters ot Charity ,
Sisters of the Poor , etc. . Instead of waiting
till the fllsters resign or die. This action
was on the point of being carried yester
day , when M. Krantz , the reporter of the
budget committee , saved the government
from defeat by Insisting that the resolution
must first bo submitted to his committee ,
as It Involves a large Increase | u expendi
tures. On the resumption of the school
debate today M. Jourdan demanded that
the government take steps to secularize
all girls' schools within two years , but M.
Krantz opposed the motion and the pre
mier , M. Mellnc. declared that the proposi
tion was Impracticable and merely a ma
neuver against the government , which would
ask the Chamber to reject It.
M. Goblet nskcd the government to fix a
date for the secularization of the schools ,
whereupon M. Mcllnu retorted that M. Gob
let was amiss when ho estimated that the
complete secularization of the schools would
take twenty years. The debate closed with
a motion fixing upon a term of two years for
the secularization of the schools. This was
opposed by M. Mellne nnd was eventually
rejected by a vote of 326 to 237.

case are the property of Mrs. Annie Mc-
Laughlln , who lives near the Patcrson clt >
line. The farmer was walking along the
highway ono morning last week when Mrs.
McLaughlln's goats espied him. They fol
lowed him. He tried to drive them back ,
but in vain. Mrs. McLaughlln went after
her pets. She was exasperated when they
refuse.1 to return at her bidding.
"You have no business wearing them
things , " she said , pointing to Suydam's
whiskers. "Why don't you take them off ?
The goats think Its hay. "
Suydam did not like her talk. Ho made
a complaint before Justice Hubschmltt ,
charging Mrs. McLaughlin with disorderly
conduct. Lawyer Richard Randall summed
up the case for Mrs. McLaughlln.
"It has been shown , " he said , addressing
the magistrate , "that this man passed tiic
house before the goats had breakfast. They
sau- him coming and looked up intelligently
at him. How could they resist such a bunch
as that ? Just look at the Inducement. If I
were a goat the first thing I would do would
be to go for those whiskers. We find by de
cisions In Massachusetts. Oklahoma and
Kalamazoo that when an animal pursues
such a thing as that and there Is no evidence
of vlclousness It merely acted with bad Judg
"Tills man has no right to appear In the
public highway with such a show of whis
kers. It Is a violation of the sumptuary
laws. I quote from Coke upon Llttlctown to
show that a man has no right to Induce a
dumb animal to follow him by wearing such
Justice Hubschmltt agreed with Lawyer
Randall , and before acquitting Mrs. Mc
Laughlln gravely told the farmer he had violated
lated the law. Suydanuwas J.ot represented
by counsel. But ho declared ho would en
gage a lawyer nnd huvo Jhe" case appealed.
He spent much on tuo law rather than
remove his whiskers.

nnoihpr for whom Inclement weather hns no
terror ? It Is the man who loves n Run. In the
fnco of bail weather , with absolutely no pro
tection from the driving storm which swept
over the Run club grounds across the river ,
fully a hundred of them nswmbled to wit
ness the match shoot between F. S. 1'nrmclce
of thlsi city and J. A. U. Klllott of Kansas

win one of the most remarkable matches
ever shot In the country. 1'armcleo demon
strated that ho Is not only a capital shot , but
that ho possesses ncrvo In n remarkable
degree. When each mnn had faced the
trap forty times Elliott had only one lost
bird to his credit , while I'armolee had missed
five. From that time on he braced up and
niado a run of thirty-three straight kills ,
then eight , and from his seventy-sixth bird
shot out his score clean.
Elliott started oft with hard luck , his first
bird being a dead out of bound. From
that time he Rave n remarkable exhibition of
shooting , making a run of forty-one straight
kills , the best of the match. After that on
he did not shoot so well. Ho missed his
forty-Hxth , fifty-seventh ,
braced up again and made a run of twenty-
four. miming his eighty-fourth. Either the
steady i-hootlng of I'nrmelee or the cold
which wcmed to affect him more than his
opponent , rattled the man from the Knw. and
he missed his ninety-fifth bird , an easy one.
which tied the peore. The crowd set up a
shout at this , hut the next time he faced
the trap demonstrated It wan not partial
when It liberally applauded a clean , first-
barrel kill of n dark bird , which left the
trap like a shot and performed a corkf'xrow
evolution. It was a beautiful kill and the
applause was richly earned.
When the veteran faced the trap for his
last bird , which If killed would tie the score.
he was evidently a little bit nervous. The
bird was a lively one and results showed , a
strong flyer It was hit hard with both
charges , but persisted In going over the
bounds to die. When the result was declared
he waa among the first to congratulate his
I'armelee. as stated above , started out
poorly. Of his first five mls.-es at least two
were of easy birds , which should never have
gotten away. HI ? first lost bird was his
fifteenth , dead out of bounds , the nineteenth
got away safely , the twenty-second was a
dead out of bounds , the twenty-fifth and
thirty-first were inlased and the thirty-fifth
went over the line to dlo. With five lost
birds to his opponent's one. the hearts of
the local contingent , who had placed money
on the homo man at oJJs , went down , but
the colonel proceeded to show them what
ho could do In an emergency , only letting
two birds get away during the remainder of
the match , and both of these had ample
cauu.i to remember him , being retrieved out
I'armelee made some remarkable kills of
hard drivers , having a little the worst of
It on hard birds , hla mlasesi ns a rule being
the easy ones , not over two of them being j
strong , swift fliers. They both of them
caught plenty of hard birds , however.
The score , 92 to 91. was a remarkable ono
considering the conditions prevailing , and In
one of which neither need be ashamed at any
time. In addltlou to the cold , which chilled
shooter and spectator alike , there was a
nasty wind blowing quartering across the
grounds and the light was poor , making birds
very dlfilcult to see. The birds were a good
lot , very few of them refusing to take wing
promptly arid many of thorn wore drivers of
the worst sort.
The retrieving was done by M. C. Peters'
spaniel , and finer work In this line was
never scon anywhere. On several occasions
bo picked up birds which would have given
a man plenty of trouble and might possibly
have gotten away. Ho did his work with a
snap which showed he enjoyed It and never
seemed to tiro.
I'armelee shot a Parker double-barrel gun
and Elliott a Winchester pump gun.

Amcng the events of the new year In Chicago
cage will he the opening of the John Crerar
library. The exact date has not been de
cided upon , but every effort Is being made
to get the books In readiness for the pub
lic by January.
Th' ? library Is to be on the sixth floor of
the new Marshall Field building , says the
Chicago Tribune. This entire floor has been
remodeled and fitted up with all appropriate
library furniture and appurtenances.
A le.iso has been taken for five years , as
It Is deemed not Improbable that on the ex
piration of the lease the John Crerar 1'brary
may have a building of Its own. The com
mittee on building consists of John M. Clark.
Henry W. Bishop and Robert T. Lincoln , all
of whom an > known to be In favor of con
structing a new building if it shall seem
advisable later on. Meanwhile the library Is
bo located where light andwilr will be
plentiful and where the books will bo easy
Huntlngton W. Jackson , one of the execu
tors of the Crerar will , said that It waa th *
desire of the executors to organize a library
that should be entirely creditable to the-
founder and to the city of Chicago. For
that reason he said they had not been mak
ing haste In their preparations.
Clement W. Andrews , the librarian , who
waa formerly a professor In the Massachu
setts Institute of Technology , la now In
Chicago , and U superintending the classifica
tion of the new library. Ho has about a
dozen acslstants working with him , and this
force will bo Increased as the books come
In and as the preparations for the opening
Mr. Andrews has been In the east for
several months during the last year making
collectlonn of books among publishers and
from other libraries In discontinued depart
ments. Norman Williams , ono of the ex-
ccutom under the Crerar will. 'Is now In
Boston negotiating for library material.
Incidental to Mr. Williams' eastern trip
It will be Interesting to Chlcagoans to know
that another object of his visit there Is to
consult the Society of American Sculptors
In regard to th < Lincoln monument , which
was also provided for in John Crerar'e will.
XIr. Jackson , one of his fellow executors ,
said that no site has been , taken under con-
Jslileratlon yet for the proposed monument ,
as that must depend somewhat upon the
style of memorial that may bo decided
upon. It Is probable that the loading sculp
tors of America will soon bo Invited to sub
mit designs from which a selection will bo

"While up near the Point of Rocks. Fred
erick county , Md. , some days ago , " said a
prominent geologist to the Washington Star
man , "I visited the quarry from which the
stone that constitute the famous pillars In
the old hall of the house of representatives ,
otherwise known as the National Statuary
hall , was quarried. The stone Is known to
geologists as breccia , though the common
narao Is 'pudding stone , ' from Its peculiar
formation. It Is a llmratono conglomerate ,
though nearly a true marble. It Is a handsome -
some as well as remarkably interesting for
mation to geologists as well as to others.
Strange to say , however , thero-ls no de
mand for It , though It Is easily sawed Into
slabs for table covers , etc.
"The day I was there I saw great quan
tities of It broken up and thrown Into kilns
and burned Into lime. It makes a very de
sirable lime , and particularly fora fertilizer.
What made -no feel sad was that this won-

said to her : "Take the ue.\t car , madam ;
