CLOUD ON TELEPHONE TITLE
Oomtj Attorney Ho'.da Nebraska Company
Hai No Franchise in Oity.
SAYS THE PROCEEDINGS WERE IRREGULAR
Urlna-a I p Same Point of Law the Com
pany Itself Raised Akalnst Validity
of an Ordinance of City
. "Is the franchise tinder which the Na
braska Telephone company operating in
Council Bluffs a valid one?" This Is the
duration which County Attorney Klllpack
baa decided to ask the courts to deter
mine. The county attorney contends tint
the company has not, and. In fact, never
did have, a valid franchise, and yesterday
served original notice of aa action In quo
warranto In the name or the state of Iowa
The notice of suit, which wsa served on
A, P. Fair, local manager of the Nebraska
Telephone company, yesterday afternoon,
sets forth that action would be brought on
tho grounds "that you are wrongfully and
Illegally using and occupying the streets,
alleys and public grounds of Council
Bluffs with a telephone line and system;
that you are asserting and exercising the
rights and privileges of a franchise for a
telephone, system in said city while In
fact you have no franchise or light of any
kind to use the streets, alleys and public
grounds of said city, and plalntht will ask
to have yeu ousted from such public
County Attorney Ktllpack. when asked on
what grounds he based his contemplated
action, stated that he contended thft the
ordinance granting the Nebraska Telephone
company a franchise had not been passed
In the manner required by law, and that,
therefore, the franchise was null and Told.
There was nothing, he said, in the rec
ords of the city council to show that a
roll call had been taken on the passage
of the ordinance, and that there waa no
record of the yea and nay vote as required
by law. Mr. Klllpack said he had ex
amined the records of the proceedings of
the city council and that while the roll
call may have been taken, and probably
was, on the passage of the -ordinance there
is no record of the vote. The failure to
record the yea and nay vote, the county
attorney holds, was fatal to the ordinance
and the franchise granted by it. The or
dinance conveying to the Nebraska Tele
phone company a franchise for an Indef
inite number of years was passed by the
city council October 8, 1888.
Hoist by Owa Petard.
At the January term of the district
court In this city in the case of the Town
of Mlnden against Henry Hesley, In which
it was sought to Impose a fine upon the
defendant under an ordinance, the defend
ant contended (bat the ordinance was null
and void for the reason that the records
of the city council failed to show the yea
and nay vote at the time of its passage, aa
required by law. Judge, Thornell sustained
the contention and ruled that the ordinance
had never been properly passed and, there,
fore, was of no effect. . It is on this ruling
that County Attorney Klllpack bases his
action against the telephone company.
When asked if this action was being
brought at the Instigation of parties In
terested In any of the proposed new In
dependent telephone companies, Mr. Ktll
pack said It was not, and that. he. had
decided to bring the suit "tor the public
welfare." He stated that the petition
would be filed on or before Friday of this
week, in time for the January session of
the district court, over which Judge Thor
nell will preside. "It will be no fault of
mine If the suit is not triad at the next
term," remarked Mr. Klllpack. He said
further that he was determined to see
whether the company had the right to con
tinue to claim everything In sight and out
of sight, and charge the public exorbitant
rates for an Indifferent service.
This' action on the rift of the county
attorney at the time when the air It full
of rumors of Independent telephone com
panies proposing to enter Council Bluffs
Is regarded as significant, and give rise
to the suspicion that there are others In

at 2205 South Tenth street. Baker had
been working for several months for J.
Katelman, a Junk dealer on South Main
street. He wss the son of the late Dr.
Bker and the family at ons time was In
affluent circumstances. The Identity waa
not discovered until after the Inquest had
The only witnesses at the inquest were
James McSorley, foreman of the switching
crew; J. S. Mathews, engineer; Nels II.

switchman. In addition to their testimony
the written atatenient of C. D. McGhee,
who, with his belongings, occupied one ot

track, proceeding west, ths same as the
switch engine, and that he was not seen
until the train was within forty or forty-
five feet ot him; that the engineer blew
the whistle for all crossings and that the
bell was rung continuously. The Jury, con

DISCUSS CONDUIT ORDINANCE
Some of the Aldermen Suspicions
There Is Some Hidden Motive
A petition urging the passage of the ordi
nance providing for the placing of all tele
phone wires In underground conduits,
signed by over 100 of the leading business
and professional men of the city, was pre
sented at a meeting ot the city council last
night and t-fee ordinance was informally
discussed by the aldermen In committee of
the whole, but no action taken.
Aldermen TInley and Casper stated they
were of the opinion that there was some
hidden motive back of the ordinance and
objected to any action being taken on It
until they had time to further investigate
it. Attorney Wadswortb, on behalf of Hoi
lenbeck Bros., In whose Interest the
measure was Introduced, explained the pur
pose of the ordinance and contended that
it was a good business proposition for the
city, as the time would surely come when
all wires would have to go under ground.
Alderman Lovett spoke In favor of the or
dinance and showed that In other cities the
first wires to go under ground were these
of the telephone companies. This, he ex
plained, was because the telephone compa
nies used a great many more wires thsn
other concerns. Alderman Lovett also ex
pressed the opinion that if the telephone
company was willing to place Its wires
under ground, as it was stated It would be,
the ordinance would work no hardship on
anyone and the city would thus be bene
fited by the removal of part ef the wires
Incumbering the streets.

Report of Minnesota Department on
Des Moines Concern Creates
Mnch Excitement In Cap
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Dec. 22. (Special.) Major
J. A. Olmstead, commandant of the mili
tary department of the State Normal
school at Cedar Falls, today received in
formation to the effect that he has again
won his case in which the United States
has been suing him to recover money paid
him for a horse. The court ot appeals
has affirmed the decision of Judge Mc
pherson. ' Nearly seven years ago Olm
stead was stationed at Fort Robinson as
a major in the regular army. While on
duty he lost a horse, which was his own
property, but which was in use by him
as an officer in the army. He filed a claim
under the act ot 18S5 and after hla claim
had gone through the usual routine he
received 360 for his lost horse. Later the
claims of this nature became so numerous
that It waa desired some new ruling should
be made, and the War department directed
United States Attorney Miles to bring
suit In the federal court here to recover
the sum paid. It was set up by the gov
ernment that the claim was Irregular, and
that the act did not contemplate payment
under such circumstances. Judge McPher
son held that the payment by the comp
troller was correct and In accordance with
the law, and now the circuit court ot ap
peals, sitting at St. Louts, has affirmed the
McPhereon decision. Major Olmstead has
since retired from the service and last
year waa Inspector general of the Iowa
national guard, but la now Instructor at
the State Normal school.
State Auditor Merrlam returned this
morning from Chicago, where he had gone
to see an uncle, who Is very ill. Attorney
General Mullan also returned this after
noon from Waterloo. It is expected the
state executive council will Immediately
take up the matter of complaints in regard
to the alleged Illegal or Irregular examina
tion of insurance companies In New York
by the state auditor and his examiner.
Thus far both the auditor and the other
members of the council have hesitated
about making a beginning In such an in
quiry. Something of a sensation has been cre
ated by the official report of the Minnesota
Insurance department on the National Life
and Trust ot this city, which his been
doing business about three years and a
talf. The report of the official examiner
makes a bad showing of the company's
ability to pay the extraordinary sums
which have been promised, for of the
$1,620,000 received by the company thus
far only 318,657 has gone back to policy
holders,' and there Is a surplus of only
about $28,000 as profits. The examiner
finds that the . company, through Its of
ficials, professes , to be able to double an
Investment In ten' years, but he points out
that this will be Impossible under the
showing the company was able to make
to him.., Officers of the company claim
that the. examination was prejudiced, but
It is causing consternation.
