FUSION HAS ITS OPPONENTS
Hard Working Free Silver Democrats Objed
to Taking Up with Populists ,
NICE LITTLE POPOCRATIC SCHISM OPEN !
Mnclilne Think * It Ilnn Tiling * Al
Mocly Klioil , hut Melontlic
Surface There In 11 Hut
There arc evident signs that howcvei
harmonious It may appear on the surface
there Is considerable latent dlsaffectlor
among the rank and lllo of the democrat ! !
party In Council Bluffs. This disaffection
It Is said , will manifest Itself nt the count :
convention of the party to bo held In thli
city some time next mouth. In the firs
place , It Is said that there are a largo nunv
ber of free- silver democrats In this cltj
who nro not at all pleased with the actlor
of the congressional convention In fuslnf
with the populists. This wing of the loca
democracy threatens that , If the county con'
ventlon assumes the same tactics and at
tempts to fuse on the nominations for thi
county offices , there will be trouble rlgh
there and then and lots of It. The demo
cratlc party , the opposers of fusion say
Is quite able to take care of Itself wlthou
having to travel hand In hand with thi
populists. This wing Is determined , at leas
so far as It Is concerned , that none bu
avowed dle-ln-tho-dltch free stlverltes shal
be nominated for any of the county offlcei
The threat Is taken to refer principal ! ;
to Attorney John P. Organ and Justice o
the Peace Ambrose Durke. Mr. Organ 1
said to bo a candidate for the nomlnatloi
of county attorney , but Is not looked upoi
with favor by many of the local bourbon
as It Is said he has become converted to th
gold standard. For this reason the rani
and file of William Jennings Bryan's fol
lowers In this city say they hove no us
for him politically. Mr. Organ has re
peatedly stated that he Is not looking fo
the nomination , but It Is no secret that th
"machine" of the local democratic party or
urging his nomination as being the strong
est that they can make. Mr. Organ hel
the office for several years , being succeede
by the present republican Incumbent , Col
onel C. G. Saunders. Ambrose Burke , wh
was elected justice of the peace In 1806 o
a Joint nomination by the democrats an
populists. Is a candidate for renomlnatlo
this fall. This does not meet with favor b
a number of local free stlverltes. The
say that Justice Burke left the democrat !
ranks several years ago to travel with th
populists , and It they want to nominal
htm all right , but ho shall not have
nomination from the democratic convcctlo
again. If he does get It and the probablll
ties are that he will , then they threate
that they will not vote tor htm.
There Are Other Candidate * .
In any case It does not look as If M
Burke will have a walkaway for the nomlni
tlon for Justice this year , as the woods a :
full of democrats , and free silver ones ;
that , who believe that they are especial
adapted for ministering out Justice. Co
Maynard , O. H. Lucas , Jim Barnett and Pi
llco Sergeant Comto are avowed candldati
and It is said that before the convcntlc
meets a number more will spring up. Und
the new law the number of Justices of tl
peace has been reduced from thrao to tw
and both the republican Incumbents a :
candidates tor renomlnatlon at the hands
their party. Justice Vlen , although he stati
he Is not a. candidate for the nominatk
Inasmuch as he will make no effort to s
cure It , admits he will not refuse If It
tendered htm. Ho Is In the hands of h
friends , he says.
There are some democrats who claim
have a kick coming because they believe tl
police force Is taking too active a part
local politics. They eay the present adml
istratlon Is emulating Richard Crocker
New York and attempting to establish
Tammany In Council Bluffs. This will n
work , as there are too many statesmen
the rank and file to permit any one mite
to create himself a boss. This Is taki
to be a left-handed slap at Chief of Poll
Blxby , who Is charged with using the mi
under him for political purposes. He
much strength the "kicking" element w
develop at the county convention remali
to be , seen , but ont thing Is perfectly ev
dent , that all Is not peace and harmony

Is a strong possibility of an Interesting tlr

Bryant street , from Broadway to Washing
ton avenue ; North Main street , from
Broadway to Washington avenue ; Willow
avenue , from Main street to Third street ,
excepting the Intersection at Fourth street ,
In occcrdanco wlh the recommendation
embodied In the report of the commlttct
of the whole , Park avenue was Strieker
from the paving resolution , as the propertj
owners desired it postponed for a year
Fourth street was also stricken from tin
resolution , as the majority of the nbuttlnp
property owners wish It paved with as-
phaltum. The city engineer and city at'
torney were Instructed to draw up specifi
cations for asphaltum paving nnd on mo
tion of Alderman Sayles a committee con
sisting of Mctcalf , Casper and Atkins was
appointed to assist. George M. Gould , a prop
erty owner on Pierce street between Stuts
man and South First streets that was In
cluded in the paving resolution , was repre-
sentcd before the council by Attorney Ha-
zelton nnd protested against the cost o
the Intersection at Stutsman street belnf
assessed entirely on that block. Mr. Hazel-
ton suggested as an equitable solution tha' '
Stutsman street between Broadway am
Pierce be ordered paved , thus throwing hal
of the cost of the Intersection paving 01
that street. On motion of Alderman John
son ths block on Pierce street was cut ou
of the resolution and the city attorney In
structed to draw up another resolution call
Ing for the paving of that block and Stuts
man street between Broadway and Pierce.
A petition from property owners repre
senting 1.C.2G feet frontage on Fourth strce
was presented , asking for brick and op
posing asphnltum , but as the street hai
already been stricken from the resolutloi
It was placed on file.
Dr. Patton and John Ahles protests
against paving North Main street with brlcl
and again asked that macadam be used. Tb
committee's report , which opposed the ma
cadam , was presented and the street wn
ordered paved with brick.
Aa all the abutting property owners o
Seventh avenue between Main nnd S'xl ' !
streets and on Fifth avenue between Peni
and Main streets filed protests against th
paving of these streets , they were ordpre
cut out from the second paving lesolutto
When the council came to tockle Wash
ington avenue it was confronted with
batch of remonstrances against the pavin
and finally , after putting In a solid hou
worrying over the matter , the portion c
the avenue from Main street to Harrlso
street was on motion of Alderman John
son cut out.
As there was a dispute as to whether
majority of the property owners were 1
favor of or opposed to the paving of th
portion of the avonua between Benton an
Frank streets the matter was referred t
the committee of thft whole , whloh wi :
meet tomorrow evening at 7 o'clock to can
vass the petitions for and the remonstrance
against. The committee will report at
meeting of the council to bo held followtn
the session as a committee of the wholi

Pour Iowa Boys Who Took a Torttmo Out of
PROSPERED WHERE PROSPECTORS FAILED
Wont Overland from Sioux Cltjnnd
Struck It Illclier Than Mniiy of the
Klondike Who Traveled
Twice an Par.
SIOUX CITY , Aug. 29. ( Special. ) Three
years ago Fred nnd Joe Parent , Tom Bidder-
son and Jack Marshall of this city started
overland for Salmon City , Idaho , In wagons.
They were laughed at by their friends , but
they all had the gold fever , nnd one after
noon in midsummer a wagon train moved
down Fourth street and the boys were off.
Many friends followed the wagons to the
brink of the Missouri river , imploring them
to glvo up what called a. foolhardy trip.
"By the tlmo you've gone a couple a
hundred miles , " said one man , "tho 'plpo'
will go out and your wild imaginations will
cease to burn ; you'll cease to see the' glit
tering gold away up in the mountains and
wish you were back hero in good old Sioux
But the prospectors , never daunting , shook
their heads , turned a deaf ear to their
friends and began the long Journey. And
they were rewarded. Joe Parent passed
through Sioux City on his way to Mt. Clem
ents Springs , Mich. , to cure the rheumatism
he contracted and for a good rest before
going to Cleveland , O. , where ho and another
31oux City man , Oscar Seers , will go Into
justness. Parent has Just sold his Interest
in the placer mines located by the Sioux
City men for $7,000 cash. Ho was compelled
to sell ou account of his health. Jack Mar
shall also sold his interest for $7,000 , but
will remain In Salmon City and do some
more prospecting on his own account. Tom
BIdderson pulled out his share some time
ago nnd struck out for the Philippines ,
where he expects to locate. Of the original
four Sioux City men Fred Parent alont
is sticking to the rich placers and Is now
Interested In the Bohanon Bar company
a rich firm.
.Many Mile * l > y WIIKOII.
"We had a great trip , " said Joe Parent
"Tho distance to Salmon City by wager
road is 1,400 miles and our Journey laj
through country rich In beautiful scenery
Our \\agons were drawn the entire distance
by the horses wo started with and when w <
pulled into Salmon City were frisky ant
fat as you please. If I was going to maki
the trip again I'd rather go overland thai
in the finest Pullman sleeper. Going bj
wagon ono has an exceptional chance t <
view the country and when he gets througl
he has seen something.
"Yes , and It was a healthy outing. W <
took our tlmo en route. In the warm weathe :
wo usually got up nt early dawn and trav
eled In the cool exhlllrating breeze of thi
morning. When the sun became oppresslvi
wo would pitch our camp beside some coo
stream , tether the horses and go In for i
plunge. After lying In the shade for a tlmi
the boys got out their fishing tackle am
we never failed to dine on speckled trout
pike or pickerel. Our table always was fl
for royalty. One Sunday evening , right li
western Nebraska , our meal consisted o
trout , French fried potatoes , stewed onloni
with cream , baked teat jlucks , radishes
pickles , boiled cabbage , ( sl Iced tomatoes , tur
nips , eggs and coffee. And it wasn't serve <
in the style I give it to you , for Tom Bid
dorson was an expert camp cook.
"As we proceeded farther west we wen
able to kill some deer , bear and mountall
sheep , beside various kinds of fowl. I tel
you on the trip to Salmon I had a greato
variety of good things than ever "before It
my life. Of course our appetites from belni
out In the fresh air were always whetted ti
a nicety and this made llfo worth living.
"When wo struck Salmon City , feellni
like kings , we went to vork with a vengeance
geanco and our reward , although not greal
was ample. It isn't so bad to strike a coun
try broke , support a family for three year
and then quit $7,000 ahead. If anyone want
to go after gold , the Klondike with it
hardships is the last place I would advise.1

ceased to glvo mlllr. Uraln threshing Is
progressing very satisfactory and the yield
Is fairly good from fourteen to twenty-two
bushels of wheat , and about forty to forty-

All Farmer * Are Happy.
DENISON , la. , Aug. 29. ( Special. )
While the great crops that are being harv
ested In the northwestern part of the state
of Iowa have been itho subject of remark
In the papers of 'the state of late , those
of the southwestern corner ot the common
wealth should not bo forgotten , either. A
gentleman who has Just returned from a
trip through a number of the southern
nnd western Iowa counties says that one of
the best crops in the history of that portion
tion of the state is being harvested this
fall and that the farmers are everywhere
contented nnd happy , apparently , judging
by the faces of those seen In the towns
passed through. Nearly all of them were
walking about from ono store to another ,
adding now bundles to their burdens at
each one. The corncrlbs are being re
paired and gotten In readiness for the great
crop that will soon bo ready for harvesting ,
while the elevators are filling up .rapidly
with small grain from the threshers , which
were seen in operation nt a number o'
points. Some small grain was still In shod
In the field , It perhaps being the Intention
to thresh it directly from the shock and
save time in stacking , as time has been
at a premium all summer and the yield
has been so good as to cnuso a return to
some of the old methods that were believed
to have been abandoned during the years
of poor crops nnd depression in business
circles. At numerous points continuous
stretches of cornfields could bo seen for a
distance that must have been flvo or six
miles never a meadow or slough between
the fields , showing again the excellent
quality of Iowa land for the production of
ithls greater staple of the world. More
people were seen In the towns than usual
and more were leaving on trips of various
kinds than had done so for a good many
years. The crops already harvested had
provided the funds for the purpose.
