Familiar as the play of "East Lynns" Is
to the average theatergoer, there la a cer
tain charm about It that holds one. Noth
ing great in the way of literary merit has
ever been claimed for the play; Ita strength
seems to lie In a faithful pro tray a! of the
commonest emotions of the human heart.
This perhaps explains In a measure the
wonderful hold "East Lynne" has on the
public. Miss Courtenay Morgan plays the
part of the heroine and plays It well. Her
costumes, made for her In Paris, will be
a special treat for the women. Much care
has been bestowed upon the costumes and
scenlo appointments of the play and a
smooth and delightful performance may be

The, city council has completed Its work
s a Board of Review. It met yesterday
afternoon to consider protests from ln
dlviduala and Arms whose assessments on
personal property had been raised by the
board a week ago. The assessment as re
turned by City Assessor Everest was raised
hy the board about fTS.OOO and yesterday
afternoon It made reductions amounting to
about $20,000. leaving about 150.000 ot the
Increase to stand.
The batiks were not represented at the
meeting yesterdsy and their assessments
were permitted to stand. It la understood,
however, that the Council Bluffs Savings
bank will take Its assessment Into court.
Alderman Lougee expressed himself In
favor of leaving the assessment where the
board had placed tbem a week ago on the
grounds that real estate had been assessed
enormously high as compared with personal
property. Nearly all of the agricultural Im
plement firms whose assessments had been
raised were on hand with protests. They
claimed generally that their stocks, which
had been assessed, consisted chiefly ot goods
John S. Gretzer. representing the Grand
Detour Plow company. In making his pro
tests, said It waa the first time he bad ap
peared to make a protect and it would be
tbs last. "Our company does not have to
stay In Council Bluffs and we can move
across the river If we went to," he said.
During the discussion of tbs compsny's ss
sessment Mr. Oretxer said: "Alderman Mc
Donald knows as well aa I do, and In fart,
we all know It. that the Implement com
panies carry a good desl larger stock than
they are asseaaed on." This brought Alder
man Lougee to his feet with an Inquiry If
Mr. Gretzer reslly meant what he said.
Mr. Gretzer replied that he did and thla
ended the discussion, the board at once de
ciding not to alter the assessment.
The Aultmsa-MUler compsny and the
Fuller Johnson company, whose assess
ments had been placed at 15.000 each, both
made protests, but without avail. The Gate
Manufacturing company, whose assessment
had been raised from 14.000 to $5,000. pro
tested and asked that It be reduced to
12.000. After Mr. Gretzer'e admission the
board declined to make any reduction.
Keys Bros., whose assessment hsd been
raised from I4.S00 to IS. 000. succeeded In
Inducing the board to reduce It to $7,000.
The Union Transfer company, whose assess
ment hsd been raised from $2,940 to $4,000,
also succeeded In getting the board to place
It back at the original figures. The assess
ment of Ttiomnaon A Sons wMfli K
Increased to $2,000 from $1,000, was placed
pack at toe xi.two mark.
Heence Mereaaaalee Assessments.
John Beno aV Co. protested agalnat their
assessment being raised from $55,000 to
$0.000 and the board plsced It back at the
original amount, as It did in the case of
Ferdinand Wels. whose assessment had
been raised from $1,000 to $4,000. Mr. Wels
showed that he hsd recently placed most
of his surplus cash In government bonds.
C. R. Tyler of the Crystal mills, whoss as
sessment hsd been Incressed from $1,000 to
$J.0O0. explained to the board that ha was
on tbs bear side of ths wheat market aad
that he only carried insurance of $2,000
upon his stock which was Insured, he said.
to the limit and the board reduced his as
sessment to $2,000.
J. W. Squire, protested against having his
assessment raised from $10,000 to $20,000.
and explained that owing to the Inability
to place loans he had recently Invested
much of his capital in real estate. Ths
board accepted his explanation and placed
his assessment back at $10,000, as made by
