RECORD FOR PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS
Some Statistics of What Has Been

When the clock on tbe Bloomer school
house tolled tho midnight hour last night
.nlindd the nasslnr t,t a vear which in
" ,0""apa tne Passing ota year wnicn in
the history of Council Bluffs will go on
record as the moat prosperous It has en
Joyed and tbe ushering In of a new year
which indications point to being equally
Not only have publlo Improvements kept
pace with private enterprise, but the de
velopment of the city along all lines has
surpassed all former records. Handsome
business blocks have replaced the old-time
frame buildings, landmarks of the city when
it was a frontier town; elegant residences
have been built in every section of tbe city
until the year closed with Improvements,
public and private, estimated to aggregate
at least $1,000,000.
The last year has seen the advent Into
the city of another great railroad system.
The Chicago Great Western has expended
during the last twelve months thousands
upon thousands of dollars for its right-of-way
and for its terminal buildings tn this
city. Other railroads centering in Council
Bluffs have also expended large suma for
Improvements within the city limits, and to
which must be added the large expenditure
of the motor company in improving its re
sort at Lake Manawa and its general street
system in this city and between Council
Bluffs and Omaha.
Merchants Have Banner Year. -
For the retail and wholesale merchant
1902 was a banner year, and it was the same
for the many large wholesale agricultural
houses on Implement row. Tbe banks have
had a moet prosperous twelve months, aa
n" 7 X' , , " .
Never ,n th history of the city has the
volume of business In the real estate, mar-
aer. reached the magnitude It did during
1902, and more business buildings and pri
vate? residences were erected during tbe last
twelve months than ever before.
The Indebtedness of the' municipality has
materially decreased, and the city atarts
out on the new year with its finances in
better shape than for many years past.
Bveral new manufacturing enterprlseo
have located In the city, and several large
Implement houses have established head
quarters here for this section ef the coun
try during the last twelve months. The
public schools have enjoyed an era of
marked prosperity along with everything
else, and the year closes with the larges;
enrollment of pupils in the history of the
Itccord of Pabllo Improvements.
Public Improvements in Council Blufff
during 1902 kept pace witA the times, and
today this ejty 1s 'one bf'tbebest par&

Record Real Estate Transfers.
One of the most notable features of the
last year and one of the particular a'rlk
lng evidences of the general pro-perl y
which prevailed in Council Bluffs and
Pcttawattamio county waa the remarkable
activity of the real estate market. The
aale of farm' land and the prices obtained
were unprecedented in the historv of this
county. Never before has there been such The books of County Treasurer Arnd i th" Brand prlie, one from Ottumwa and
a volume of real estate bualness In this i show that the tax collections for 1902 were ene trom wll"nBburg, each with seventy
section of the state and tha remarkable I greater than for the previous year There nlen,br' There are also a number of con
feature of it all was that the sales were i was eolitPd imk sn m .ki.i, h- testanta from Hedrtck. Colfax, Iowa City
bona flde transactions, the majority being
casn saies. i tat tne advent of the Great
Western railroad Into thla county and city
necessitating the purchase of Its right -of
way, Increased tbe sales la not disputed,
but this was but a minor feature of the
year's transactions. The total transac-
Hons fcr the twelve months Just passed
represent almost $5,000,000, of which
amouut $3,r.00.CO0 la credited to the first six
months of tho year. In the month of
March, 'the banner month by long odds, thi
lransactior.3 reached the sum of 11.353 -
0S0.01. During the year t.848 deeds were
filed for record, the total consideration
amounting to $1,888,501. The transactions !
2 i acd ccnslderstlons, divided into months,
were as follows:
5?9 i-1 8)
Totals 4 $.846 H.kSStl.txJl.&J
Increased Postal Receipts.
The bualness at tbe postofflce haa shown
a steady Increase during 1902 and the re
ceipts far tho last twelve months amounted
to clcss upon $120,000. In addition to its
local bualness tbe Council Bluffs postofflce
is the remittance station for aub offices to
twenty-three counties In western Iowa
Four rural routee are also counseled with
1 this office aod. besides the postmaster and
his deputy, fourteen clerks ara required to
handle this business. Fifteen matt carriers
are employed for 'the city diatributlon of
mall. Owing to the continued Increase of
business It will be necessary to call upon
the department for additional help this
year. The recelpta for the Inst year by
Dontba were as follows:
Local From flub
1 Hustness. Offices.
January .'..$ 6,32i W $15.36 99
Totals $61,687.82 $56,541.63
Total receipts for year $118,129.44
Fire Losses Small.
The Ore loss during 1902 was remarkably
mall and, although the department re
sponded to seventy-three calls during tbe
twelve months, the total damage sustained
Is estimated at about $9,000, the greater
part of which was fully covered by insur
ance. This speaks much for the efficiency
of the fire department. The Council Bluffs
lira department maintains four engine
houres, and comprises nineteen men, of
whom John L. Templeton, a veteran fire
fighter. Is chief. During the last year the
department purchased several new horses,
1,000 feet of new hose and all four of the
engine houses were thoroughly renovated
The calls responded to during the year
were as follow: January, 4; February, 7;
March, 7; April, 17; May, 4; June, 4; July,
8; August, 2; September, C; October, $;
November, 7; December, 10.
The city during the last year was' com
paratively free from crime of a grave na
ture. The number of arrests was about
the same' as In 1901 and most of the' cases
were for minor offenses, although there
was about the usual number of burglaries.
During 1902 the police department made
1,311 arrests, at against 1,821 In the pre
vious year. The arrests during each month
of 1902 were as follows: January, 65;
February, 100; March, 62; April, 85; May,
157; June, 154; July, 148; August, 124;
September, 106; October, 114; November,
110; December, 10L
But for the epidemic of smallpox, which
was prevalent almost everywhere last
winter. Council Bluffs would have had a
good health record for 1902. As It was
the number of cases of contagious dis
eases reported to the Board of Health was
greatly in excess of that for 1901. In ad
dition to smallpox there were many cases
of measles, as compared with the previous
twelve months. The death rate, however,
was sma.ler than for several years 'past,
despite the large Increase In the city's
population. The number of contagious dis
eases reported to the Board of Health for
1902 was 413, aa against 277 for 1901.
The mortuary statistics obtainable are
not the most accurate, aa many cases are
never reported to the city clerk. For tho
last year 318 burial permits had been is
sued, as compared with 383 for 1901, 344
for 1900 and 336 for 1899. These permits
do not Include those issued for persons
outside the city. The number of deaths re
ported each month was as follows: Janu
ary, 87; February, 24; March, 35; April, 20;
May, 80; "June, 22; July, 25; August, 81;
September,' 24; October, 23; November, 81;
Marriage License Clerk Busy.
Council Bluffs sustained during 1902 its
reputation as a veritable Gretna Qreen for
marrying couples and the records of the
clerk of the-dlstr'.ct court show there were
Issued 650 license to wed during the last
twelve months, being four less than Issued
in 1901. Divided In months they were as
follows: January, 46; February, 46; March,
48; April, 47; May, 43; June, 66; July, 46;
August, 47; September, 55; October, 85;
November, 65; December, 66.
While the record of marriage licenses
Issued shows that Cupid was not In any
way Idle during 1902, the docket of the !
district court reveals the fact that tbe
number of divorce cases was above the
average. For the four terms of court
seventy-three divorce suits were filed in
Council Bluffs and eleven in the court at
Avora. making a total of eighty-tour. In
the suits filed tn Council Bluffs tbe women
appear as plaintiffs in fifty-one and tbe
men in twenty-two.

The expenditure by the county for the
care of the poor in 1902 was slightly in

curtailment of civic expenses generally.

The State Teachers' association was fairly
started today. The first meeting of the as
sociation proper was this evening, when the

sented his address reviewing the school
work In the state, and there was an address
on school matters by Superintendent Schaef
fer of the department of education in
Pennsylvania. In the afternoon a docen
round table meetings were held In a many
different places. The enrollment at tha

ing the meetings. On recommendation of
the executive committee it was decided to
recommend to the council that the annual
meetings be held in May, and that they be
held at the various colleges and universi
ties of the state in rotation. ' It is planned
also to have at each meeting a popular ''
ture. This recommendation will probably
be adopted. ' There waa disappointment that
Professor Macbrlde waa not present at the
meetings, as he arrived too late, but he will
lecture this evening. A report of the com
mittee on food adulterations was read, also

Tbe cause of the fire Is a mystery. It
was probably atarted by a chance spark
from the machinery. The flames, fanned
by a strong south wind, spread rapidly. The

mill employea, armed with hose with which
the mill building la fitted, confined the
flames to the elevator, the loss on which
will be total.
A. C. Heath, one of the managers of the
mill, stated thla evening that the elevator
would probably be rebuilt, but the mill will
necessarily be shut down and seventy-five
men are thrown out of employment.
