of alderman before his nam. He will
again represent the First ward In th city
council and J. R. Bell, th republican In

The result of th recount was a tl vote
between Bell and Huber and it was decided
to draw lot to settle the question who
should be alderman from th First ward.
Huber proved the lucky man.
The canvaaslng board on reconvening yes
terday took up th consideration of the
ballots which bad been questioned by both

these ballot was held behind closed doors
and at the close the board announced that
It had decided to reject four of the Bell

sel tor Huber stated they would not Intro
duce further testimony and that their client
wa willing that the contest should end
there by th drawing of lots to aettl the
question who should be alderman. After
a short consultation with his attorneys
Bell accepted the proposition and agreed
to settle the contest In the manner sug
gested. The board then adjourned to B p. m.,
when a stipulation was entered Into be
tween Bell and Huber to determine the

Instead of waiting to do so before the city

franchise In Council Bluffs, submitted to
the city council last night by John H.
Kuhns, contemplates' a radical departure
In telephone service.
In th first place, the company asks for
a twenty-ffve-year franchise and agrees to

cents per call or message of five minutes'

eighteen months from and after the passage
ot the ordinance. It agrees also to put up
a $10,000 bond for th faithful performance
of It contract with the city and reserves
to th city the right to purchase the plant

sum of money equal to th amount upon
