The city council met yesterday afternoon
a a committee of the whole to conclder
the ordinance Introduced la the Intereat
of the Great Western railroad. Tba rail
road wa represented by hs local attorney.
Colonel C. O. Saunders, and J. P. Green
thleld ot the real estate firm of Green
shields A Everest, It sgrnt In acquiring It
right of way through the city. A large
number of Interested property owner and
business men were to attendance, several
of whom addressed 'the cemmittes, nrglng
that tbetr Intereat he protected and the
railroad forced to sev.le all damage before
being granted any favor by the city. The
eommlttee adjourned to 4 o'clock this aft
ernoon without taking any action.
The general contention of tha property
owners, especially those In the Third ward,
whose holdings will be affected by the ad
vent of the Great Western, wa that tha
railway company should be required to pay
them damage for the depreciation which
their property will suffer by reason of the
proximity of the railroad tracka. They
also vigorously protested against the city
vacating any portion of Ninth avenue or
South Eighth street, and against permitting
tho railroad to place it track fifty feet
from the thoroughfare en Sotltb avenue.
Oreavllle . Dodge . for tha City
Grenvllle Dodge addressed tho commute
and urged the aldermen to safeguard the
Interests of the city t-efor passing any
ordinance granting favor to the new rail
road. He ald that no road had ever com
Into Council Bluff which had asked so
much a the Great Western did. No road,
he said, passed through more valuable res
Id once property in the city than the Great
Western did and no road had mora grade
crossing In th city limits than thla rail
road ' proposed to have. He suggested that
the railroad be limited to two tracka oa
Woodbury avenue and . Tostevia street.
South avenue, which' the Oreat Western
proposed to parallel, he asserted, waa th
moat traveled thoroughfare leading Into the
city and within th corporate limit. He
xpressed the opinion that tor the safety
df farmer driving Into towa along South
avenue the railroad should not be permitted
to build It tracks within a less distance
than 100 feet from the highway and not
within fifty, as proposed. He hoped bat
the city would Insist that th railroad
maintain flagmen at fell the grade crossing
fend he Incidentally mentioned that he con
sidered It an outrag that no guards or
gatea were provided at th Main street rail
road crossings, a were provided by the
Northwestern on Broadway. He suggested
that the Great Western be required to park
with shrubbery between the. highway on
South avenue and ft track. . - 1
Ha referred to the llberalaplrit displayed
by th Illinois Central In It dealing with
property; owner on entering thi city, and
aaw no reason why the Oreat Western
could not follow Its example. II believed
the Great Western was asking for too much
and that before It be granted any favor It
should be required to aettle with all those
property owners, the vslue of whose hold
ing would be depreciated by th proximity
of It track.
Fear Faranere May Be Drive Away.
Oscar Brown, druggist' on Mala street.
who waa chairman of the meeting held re
cently by property owner of the. Third
ward, followed Mr. Dodge. He asked that
th city protect the right of th property
owner affected by th entrance of th
road Into the etty before passing any ordi
nances. He was of th opinion that th
proximity of the track to South, avenue
would drive farmer to seek a market else
where and that Main atreet merchant
would lose much ot the trade which they
bad heretofore enjoyed. Tha farmers, he
said, wer considerably worked up over th
matter and many of them had announced
their Intention of marketing at Silver City,
Instead ot Council Bluffs.
Several other property "owner In the
Third ward and business men on Main
street mad remark much to th aama ef
Coloael Saaaders for the Read.
Colonel C. G. Saunders, local attorney for
th Great Western, said the Great Westera
had paid tor every foot ot It right-of-way
through th city and had probably paid 75
per cent higher price for the property than
could be secured by tha owners oa th open
market. He said th location of th freight
depot and terminal building In thla city
woud add materially to the imputation and
there would be a demand for home by th
employe of th road within th vicinity ot
Ita track and depot. Council Bluff, he
stated, would not lose anything by being
liberal toward th new road, but Instead
would be a direct gainer.
Regarding the location of tha passenger
depot be said his company bad hoped to
buna it on the west side or Main atreet fend
Ninth avenue, but had found It Impossible
owing to th Burlington's spur track to the
Implement district. Th depot would be
erected on Nlath avenue, east of Main
atreet. on the property now occupied by the
Atlantlo house and Trinity Methodist
church. Th entrance would fee on th
avenue, with th. track south ot th depot
and south ot th aveoue.
A. protest signed by number of roperty
owners oa Ninth avenue against th city
vacating aay portion of that thoroughfare
to th Great Western wa presented and

DES MOINBS. Feb. 6. (Special.) The
most Important bill In respect to the as
sessment and taxation of railroad property
la Iowa which has yet beea Introduced
mad It appearance In both houses of th
Iowa legislature ths morning. ' Th bill was
Introduced Into th senate by Bmith and
Into th house by English. Th bill em
bodies the view of Governor Cummin In
relation to th additional Information re
quired by the State Executive council In
order to make a fair assessment bt th
railroads of the state. The provisions of
th bill are a follows:
For th purpose of making reports to the
executive council the gross earnings of rail
way companies owning or operating a line
or lines of railway partly within thla state
and partly within another state or other
states or territories or territory, upon their
line or line within this state, ahall be)
ascertained and reported by said railway
companies as follows, to-wit:
Business originating and terminating
within this state shall be separately re-
gorted, with the full earnings thereon,
uslnees originating In thle atate and term
inating elsewhere, business originating else
where and terminating In this atate and
buslnesa neither originating nor terminat
ing In thla state, but carried or done over
the line or lines In thla state, or over some
part thereof, shall be reported, separating
the three classes last above mentioned,
with the full earnings thereon in thle
state, the earnings In this state being com
puted upon the basis of the length of haul
or carriage In this state as compared with
the length of haul or carriage elsewhere,
It being hereby declared that for the pur
pose of making reports looking to the as
sessment of railway property for taxation
the gross earnings or business done or
carried partly within the state and partly
In another state or other state or territory
or territories shall, be that proportion of
the entire earnings of such business that
the haul or carriage In this state bears to
the entire haul or carriage.
The executive council shall have the
power to prescribe such rules and regula
tions with respect to the keeping of ac
counts by the railway companies doing
business In this state as will Insure the
accurate division of earnings aa aforesaid
and uniformity In reporting the same to tha
executive council. -.
It is expected this bill will receive strong
support by the friend of the present stat
administration, and It will be urged in lieu
of" other bills which 'are being prepared
providing for more radical Innovation la
the matter ot railroad assessments.

In the house this morning a resolution
wa presented which stirred up a lively
discussion. The resolution Indorses th
Lacey bill tn congress for .refunding to
state the sums; received by the United
State on swamp lands granted to -the
states, but erroneously sold by the land de
partment. ' It appear that In th cas of
Iowa, after th land grant of 1852, by which
fell the swamp and overflowed land of Iowa
was given to the state, the surveyor general
failed to- withdraw large tracts from entry
and they were disposed of. i It I clalmod
that In this; way the atate of Iowa waa de
prived of nearly $;op,000K which would hav
been received, from the sale of these lands.
The resolution.; approving the Lacey bin to
effeet ettlemwwr was presented at the re
quest of the entire Iowa delegation In con
gree, all of whont are favorable to th bill,
and It waa desired for the moral effect It
would have -on congressmen from other
atate In approving th bill. Thar waa op
position to hasty consideration of th bill,
but It waa read, After which the resolution
wa passed. .

for condemnation of certain land la Sioux

tion. The Omaha company desired a strip
from 400 to 600 feet wlda and nearly a
quarter of a mil long adjacent to ita
track In Sioux City and near the present
hop and rounhouae, the same to be used
for additional yards and Improvements. The
order wa resisted by th property own
ers, and the claim made that the Omaha
company ha no railroad line at that point,
becauco It use th Illinois Central tracks,
and also an attack was made on the legality
ot the organisation of the company. The
railroad commissioners overcame this ob
jection and decided that tha company should
have the right to condemn the land. It I
probable that an appeal will be Uken to th
court on the legal objection.
