CALL FOR A GAS INSPECTOR
Citizens Complain of Quality of Ga and tha
Size of the Bills.
MAYOR MORGAN ONE OF PROTESTANTS
Redaction in Price, According; to
Complaints, Has No Effect on the
Rise of the lllomlnatins;
City officials yesterday were dlscusBlng
the advisability of appointing a gas in
spector In view of the many complaints re
ceived by them from citizens. For months
past complaints have poured Into the city
hill from all parta of the city that not only
Is the gaa furnished of an exceedingly poor
quality, but also that the bills are exces
sive. As one cltizea put It when registering
his cum plaint yesterday, be did not think
the people of Council Bluff, should be com
pelled to pay 11.45 per 1,000 cubic feet for
wind Instead of gas. Before tha new con
tract with the Gas and Electric company
the citizens of Council Bluffs paid $1.75 for
illuminating gas and $1.60 for gas tor fuel
pWposes. Under the contract now In force
they pay $1.45 flat for gas tor both illumi
nating and fuel purposes, but they com
plain that their bills are now greater than
when the higher rates prevailed and in ad
dition the gas Is ot a much poorer quality.
It was expected that when the gas com
pany completed Its Improvements to Its
plant that the quality of the gas would be
improved, but from all parts of the city
complaints come that If anything it la
One city official, who had tried to cut
down hla gas bill by Installing electric
lights In his residence and store, stated
yesterday at the city hall, when the mat
ter was being discussed, that hla gaa bill
for the month ot February waa larger than
In January before he commenced using
electric light for Illuminating purposes.
Citizens from all parts of the city also have
made complaint that month by month, no
matter bow they endeavor to economize,
their gas bills assume an upward tendency.
The general allegation Is that the gaa com
pany, by puirplng air through Ha 1.1 pee,
makes the metera register the same as It
gaa Instead of wind waa passing through
Mayor Morgan Is one who registered a
vigorous protest with the company, but re
ceived no satisfaction and ha is determined
to bring the matter to an Issue, especially
as hundreds of citizens have complained to
Aa an Instance, one citizen stated yester
day at the city hall that while In January
hla gaa bill for illuminating purposes only
had been leaa than $3, it reached close upon
$6 In February, a shorter month than the
one previous, and aa far aa he waa aware
ho had not used any more gaa. In view of
the numerous complaints and the Investi
gation made by City Electrician Bradley
and others, who state that the quality of
the gaa furnished by tha company Is not
up to the atandard, tha city council la ex- coal to have a -heat-making value ot ap

Just before the close tonight there waa a
warm discussion on a committee report on
a bill Introduced by Close to pay Interest

house bill to pay the claims and Interest
was Introduced early In the session and
passed the house, where several members
fought It on account of a claimed doubtful
validity. The senate passed It after cutting
out the Interest, and In that way it passed
both bouses. A new bill for the Interest
was Introduced in the senate and brought
on a fight between Close and tbe majority

a fight over the bill to tax mining stock.
Allen led for the bill, backed by Hutchln
son of Beadle and Bromley. Gross op
posed it as a measure which was only In
traduced as a club by the Insurance lobby
and one which should be defeated. This
called out hot retorts on the part of Brom

and on the statements made by Lyons
charges of murder have been placed against
Joseph Moore and James Bray, who are
under arrest in St. Louis,
So many were the robberies that Lyons
Is said to be unable to recall the times or
places, and so accustomed were the men to
dealing out chloral to their Intended vic
tims that the danger of fatal results was
lost to them until Howard failed to re
cover and the possibilities of the gallows
frightened the robbers from their career.
Howard was drugged In a saloon In West
Madison street. After he fell Into a stupor
the trio carried him to tbe walk In front of
the place, where they robbed him of $17
and fled. He waa picked up by tbe police
and died In the patrol wagon.
Lyons was servina out a fine In the brlde-
! well, when his falling health quickened bis
conscience and he mado a confession, on
the strength of which tho search for Moore
and Bray was commenced.
Joseph Moore and James Bray were re
turned to Chicago from St. Louis early
today and are now In jail awaiting trial.
They will be tried for murder.

distressing forms of Itching, burning
and scaly humours, permits rest and

so In the treatment of Infants and chil
dren, cleansing, soothing and healing
the most distressing ot infantile hu

Cutlcura Ointment possesses, at tbe
same time, the charm of satisfying the
simple wants of the toilet, in caring for
