MAYOR PROTESTS TO CITY COUNCIL
Resolallona Are Adopted Demanding
Active AntssosliM . aa Part at
State Representatives Plea ta
This resolution was adopted at the meet
Ing of the city council last night:
Whereas, There is pending In the house
of representatives of the congress of the
I'nlted States a bill authorising the Omaha
Bridge and Terminal Railway company to
maintain ita bridge across the Missouri
river at the present location, removing,
however, the requirements that provision
be msde for vehicles and pedestrians; and
Whereas, Said Omaha Bridge and Ter
minal Railway company under Ita present
charter has authority to complete and
.maintain ita present bridge, the conditions
of the charter and the plans approved by
the government providing for the accom
modation of railways, street railways,
vehicles and pedestrians; and
Whereas, It will be of great injury to the
city of Council Bluffs to be deprived of the
use of a bridge at this point for vehicles
and pedestrians; therefore be It
Resolved, by the city council of Council
Bluffs, That the mayor be and hereby is
directed to urge upon Hon. Walter I.
Smith, member of congress from this dis
trict; the Iowa senators and Iowa repre
sentatives the necessity of using their best
efforts to oppose the passage of this bill
without making provision for vehicles and
Mayor Jesslsgi' Objections.
The matter of - the Millard bill was
brought before the council at the opening
of the session by Mayor Jennings with thla
A bill which has been introduced In con
gress granting the Omaha Bridge and Ter
minal Railway company the right to re
place the temporary work at the western
end. of the structure, commonly known xs
tha Terminal bridge, with a steel span,
contains provisions affecting the business
Interests of this city to such an ext;rt. and
Is of such general Interest to our cltisena,
that it seems to me we shall neglect our
plain duty if we fail to take Immediate and
decided action In regard to It; and with
this purpose In view 1 wish to formally
call your attention to the matter.
The original charter for the erection of
the Terminal bridge provided tnat it should
be for railroad, motor, wagon and pedes
trian use. The original plan waa not fully
carried out, but the bridge has, neverthe
less, been used not only for railroad traffic,
but until a year or so ago motors were run
across it, and It has at all times been open
to wagons, pedestrians, stock and for other
This has afforded competition which has
been of decided value.
The Terminal bridge has been a great
convenfence to officials of the city and
school district In their transactions with
that part of the city lying on the western
side of the river and known as Cut-Off
Before the construction of this bridge It
waa necessary for Council Bluffs officials to
f:o several miles through the city of Omaha,
n another state, whenever they had busi
ness in Cut-Off. These annoying condi
tion will again exist if the Millard bill be
comes a law.
Real Estate Demands Protection.
Real estate dealers and others with prop
erty Interests In that section have been
savKl the necessity of making a detour of
several miles through Omaha. Kei.t ..rt, of
the western part of the city especially have
acquired interests on the western side of
the river which can ' be continued only
through the maintenance of the Terminal
bridge as a wagon and foot way.
j ii iiicBQ ciiiu many uuwr lmrilcumrB, im
possible at this time to mention, it Is es
sential to considerable interests In this city
that the Terminal bridge be maintained for
all the purposes for which It was originally
The bill now before congress eliminates
from the charter all requirements for the
use of the Terminal bridge by wagona and
foot passengers, and. If passed, will thus
operate to destroy Its usefulness in these
farttculars. I believe that Cut-Off la def
ined to develop into a thriving manufac
turing, commercial and residence district.
1 am informed that one argument advanced
by the owners of the bridge Is that, up to
this time, wagon and foot traffic over It
haa not been profitable. An answer to this
Is that the company has not encouraged
this class of business; but, regardless of
any merit or demerit in this contention, I
believe the future growth of the temtory
lying west- of the river and tributary to
' this bridge is sufficient reason for us to
unite with other Council Bluffs cltisena in
an effort to prevent the passage of the
Millard bill, unless It be so smended aa to
Include wa ;nn and foot traffic among the
purposes for which the bridge la to be
maintained in the future.
Commercial Cemmlttre Pretests.
A protest was read against the paasage
of the bill from the commercial commit
tee, signed by Chairman Test, M. R. Robrer,
L. A. Devlne and Dr. Bsrstow.
A large number of Interested eltltens at
tended the meeting, and the council was
addressed ' by Attorney Emmet Tlnley,
Colonel C. R. Hannan and M. F. Robrer,
urging the city council .to protect the city's
rlghta over the bridge.
The resolution was Introduced by Alder
man Boyer, who apoke at length on the
proposed bll), also on the bill now before
the Iowa legislature for the appointment of
a boundary commission. Boyer character
ised both bills as being part of a scheme
to take Cut-Off frem Iowa and give It to
Nebraska. In support of hla contention
he (ead a letter from Speaker Sears of
the Nebraska legislature. "

In a communication to the council City

tion of the several funds appropriated for

tenance of the police department I14.0C0

Are you neglecting your health ?
THE PENALTY OF NEGLECT
IS THE SAME AS THE WAOES OF SIN.
SMITH'S OREEN HOUNTAIN RENOVATOR
SHOULD BE TAKEN PROMPTLY BY
If yon are merely existing, we want to hare a few earnest
words with yon.
The numbers of people who really Uto Is small compared
with the fast number that merely exist.
Some people seem to think that if they feel able to get around
and attend to their usual duties they ought to be thankful. As
a matter of fact, it la the solemn duty of .everybody to be
entirely well to feel the blood of health , dancing In the reins
and the vigor of perfect strength in every member of the body.
Such a happy condition is possible only when every organ is
doing its work properly and there is a consequent harmony of
all the functions and a full supply of pure blood.
Any piece of mechanism, particularly one so delicate as the
human body, will surely get clogged up at times and thrown
completely out of gear.
You know very well what the symptoms are. Yoii know, too,
that troubles of the liver, kidneys and stomach are responsible
for your condition. You know you need cleaning out and fixing
up generally. Smith's Green Mountain Renovator Is
what you need. It will do the work better, quicker 'and keep
you well longer than anything else.
This celebrated remedy is made solely of roots and herbs and
Is, therefore, perfectly harmless. It Is the great bodybuilder
of all medicines. Those who use It have strong nerves and
muscles and never have to take any other kind of medicine.
In Vermont, where it comes from, it has been everybody's
medicine for a quarter of a century, although never advertised
until it was bought by its present owners and placed on the
general market through agents.
Its former makers were satisfied with the steady custom of
Vermonters with the fact that no other medicine' could take
its place with those who knew its merits.
" I am telling all my friends about Smith's Green Mountain Renovator.
It has certainly done wonders for me. I have been completely run down, nervous
and weak, besides suffering with a sore on my ankle the result of impure blood.
I am on my fourth bottle and feel like a new woman, and my ankle is healing
finely. I know that the Renovator will do as much for others as for me, and I
recommend it strongly to all who are weak and sick.
" Mrs. C. Reese, 19 Park St., Norwalk, Conn."
Everybody is Invited to try this medicine at our risk.
Give it a trial and note the results. If you are not benefited,
you can have your money back.
