aame time thia action on the part ot tt
j county attorney Invited more or leas criti
cism. City official make no secret of the
I matter that they are considerably worried
over the altuatlea and the saloon keeper
are equally concerned, as they say that
to comply with the county attorney's orders
will mean the loss to them of at least Jo
If not 40 per cent of their present earnings.
Mr. Klllpstk listed yesterday that hla
reaaon for Issuing the order was tbst Coun
cil Bluffs waa the only city in the state
In which the saloons made no attempt to
live up to the mulct law. Other citle
did and there was no reason why Council
Bluff ahould not. He eald he Intended
that the saloon henceforth should close
on week das at 10 p. m. and keep closed
all holidays and Sundays and that no aide
door or back door evasion would be per
mitted. "As to screen and obstruction In
the window I shall make no objection,"

will have to go. City authorities Insist
that wins rooma have been a matter of the

When asked if the mulct law would be

and the resort there Mr. Killpack aald It
certainly would be and that all place sell

too ridiculous for comment.
Mayor Morgan is out of the city, having
left Sunday evening for Chicago. One of
the members of the city council suggested
yesterday that the city authorities take no
notice of the county attorney's order and
that if any action be taken to enforco the
mulct law that he take It. The same alder
man at the tame time stated that If the
county attorney did take such action he

NO LIGHT ON BRIDGE BILL
Congressman Smith Himself In the
Dark as to Its Spon
sor. Congressman Walter I. Smith returned
home from Washington yesterday morning,
but hla constituents are just as much In
the dark as ever regarding the bill which
he Introduced providing for another bridge
across the Missouri river between Council
Bluffs and Omaha.
Congressman Smith, when acked regard
ing this bill, admitted that he was asked to
Introduce it by a well known . citizen of
Council Bluffs, but as the latter requested
that hla name be not made public, Mr.
Smith considers the matter confidential
and declinea to state at wnose instigation
he introduced the bill which has excited so
much Interest and curiosity here. As to
the partiea back of this bill. Congressman
Smith states he Is In ignorance, and that
he has no Idea for whom the charter Is
ultimately Intended. He said:
"I was asked by a well known citizen of
Council Bluffs to Introduce the bill, y-tao
requested that I should not make hla name
public. I agreed to do so and, considering
that this person' connection with the
bridge waa confidential, I cannot at thla
time make anything public. A I am In
favor of there being a bridge between
Council Bluff and Omaha at every avail
able point, I willingly consented to Intro
duce the bill, but I have no Idea In whose
Interests the bill waa framed. This much
I can tell, and that 1 that the bill was
approved by the secretary of war and was
favorably pasred on by the committee to
which It was referred. It undoubtedly
would have passed but for the filibustering
tactic which marked the closing ot the
Congressman Smith states further that,
according to his understanding, the loca
tion of the proposed bridge la to be about
midway between the motor company's
bridge at the foot of Douglas street and
the Terminal company' bridge in East
Omaha. This, he . said, would place both
ends of the bridge on Iowa territory.
When asked If the bridge was not In the
Interest ot one ot tne railroads now enter
ing Council Bluff, Mr. Smith said be was
unable to tell.
Congressman Smith la of the opinion
that an extra session of congress will be
called because of the Cuban treaty. Un
less an extra session Is called, Mr. Smith
expects to spend the greater part of the
next nine month at home In Council Bluffs.

CEDAR FALLS, la., March 9. (Special.)
The rapid transit company has completed
arrangements with the Chicago Great West
ern Railroad company to take over Its
freight business between this city nnd
Waterloo and the way freight now run
ning will be taken oft between here and
Wilson Junction. This Is another move,
carrying out the pedlction that the rapid
transit company would eventually take over
both the freight and passenger business of
the Grest Western between these two
places. The' general passenger arrangement
between the two roads has been in opera
tion for some time. The Great Western has
alio contracted with the electric line to
uso it shop when completed at Water
loo. Taking; Desperate Chances.
It is true that many contract alight colds
and recover from them without taking any
precaution or treatment, and a knowledge
of this fact lead other to take their
chances Instead of giving their colds tho
needed attention. It rhould be borne In
mind that every cold weakens the lungs,
lowera tho vitality and makes the system
less able to withstand each succeeding cold
and pavea the way for more serious dis
eases. Can you afford to take such des
perate chances when Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, famous for its cure of colds, can
be had for a trifle?

HAVANA, March 9. The debate on the I
reciprocity treaty was resumed In the aen- '
Senator Sangullly contended that reel-1
procity wa not necessary to Cuba's prog
ress, and then passed on to a somewhat
popular fear of the domination of Cuba by
trusts. He denied that the treaty would
benefit either the Cuban producer or the
United States consumer and asserted that
the trusts would be the sole beneficiaries.
He argued that It was a suspicious circum
stance that General Tasker H. Bliss, who
negotiated the treaty, should have declared
before the United Statea congressional com
mittee that It ought to be the policy ot the
United Statea to get hold ot the entire
Cuban market. The business Interests in
the United States aspire to control Cuban
cconomio affairs and make Cuba an eco
nomic colony of the United States, and It
v.as surprising to him how so good a friend
of Cuba aa President Roosevelt should have
been led into such an imbroglio.
Aa a proof of the alleged conspiracy to
gain control of tho Cuban market, he called
attention to an article published In an
American review by General Wood, In which
he held that Cuba waa lost unless it secured
reciprocity with the United Statea, whereas,
aa a matter of fact. It was entirely possi
ble for Cuba to exist Independently of such
