Gratifying Condition of Treasury.
PRESENT CITY OFFICIALS REAPPOINTED

Streets Darin the I'ree
The session of the city council Iaat night,
being the Drat meeting of the new fiscal
year. Mayor Morgan, following the custom
of his predecessors, delivered his annual
message to the aldermen. In which he re
viewed the work of the laat twelve months
and made some recommendations for the
ensuing year. Referring to the financial
condition of the city ha said:
It Is gratifying to know that at the end
of the first year of our administration our
expenses have been kept well within our
appropriations, our appropriations well
w.thln our Income, and that there reman
h substantial cash balance In the c ty's
treasury. At the beginning of the fiscal
year, April, 92, the city a total Indebted
ness was t39.500. this consisting of out
standing bonds, and the net Indebtednesj
was X331. 21V 76.
There has ben paid during the year, in
tersection paving bonds amounting to ll&
0JU, Intersection war bond, S17,0uo, making
a total of 129.0). leaving a balance of
bonded Indebtedness of 1361.500. There is a
cteh balance on hand In all funds of about
$6lj0, which ltsvea a net Indebtedness of
only 13(11.510. This showing should be a
source of gratification to every taxpayer,
espec ally as we have tto floating Indebted
ntss and all warrants were paid when pre
sented. It Is a matter of regret that the
dtmand on the part of the members of the
Are and police departments for Increased
wafrrs could tot be recognized. Yet It Is 1 1
be h ipcd that the time Is not far distant
wh"n the revenues will Justify such an in
crease In our expenses.
Touching on the water works question, be
A good water works system la an abso
lute necessity for every city. Our citizens
are Jui-tly proud of our present system. It
Is well equipped and up to date. I s ca
pacity Is amply able to supply all demands,
both for Are protection and domestic uses,
but the growing cost for water service It
bpconilng a heavy burden upon our city's
rvenue. It Is to be hoped that when th
present contract expires a very substan
tial reduction will be had from the present
Partag Work of Tear.
We have made a marked advance In
street Improvement during the list year,
something over 52.(100 square yards of pav
ing having been laid, with mTe than 2&,
0 s-iuare yards contracted for, but nit
yet lompleted on account of the early
breaking up of the paving reason. When
thse contracts are completed all but thres
sireet3 which were paved with the old
cedar b'ocks will have been repaved. I
would recommend that these streets be
added to those to be ordered paved this
reason. This will complete much of the
necessary paving, and while It Is deslrabl;
that all streets In the central portion -if
th (I y be ultimately paved, yet you i houl 1
not lose sight ot the ourdens you art put
ting upon tne property owners, and shoul
ptoceed with caution. While I am sat. she
that you have determined upon the bes
kind of paving material for our use aa re
gards durability and cost, yet I believe
l hat from the nature of our soil, a con
crete base would be much preferable to a
lower course of brick.
In closing Mayor Morgan congratulated
the citizens of Council Bluffs In securing
the generous gift from Mr. Carnegie of $70,
0QOvr,a public library building. .
Reappoints City Officers.
These officers were unanimously reap

Seventh streets; Seventh street, between
Eighth and Ninth 'avenues; N'lnth avenue,

INQUEST DEVELOPS NOTHING
Coroner Adjonrna Session to Recon
vene at His
Coroner Treynor began tha Inquest over
Bert Forney, the mudered saloonkeeper,
yesterday morning, but after taking the
testimony of Sheriff Cousins, James Chaney,
Chief of Police TIbblts. C. W. Letchford and
Dr. M. A. Tlnley adjourned it, to be re
sumed at his order. The adjournment was
in view of the fact that Important evidence
connecting W. C. Rogers, the suspect under
arrest, with the crime Is expected to de
velop. The Jury Is composed of August Paris,
J. A. Crafts and Oeorge W. Long. Tho
testimony was taken down by a shorthand
James Chaney's testimony waa substan
tially a repetition of the story he told the
night ot the murder. While he declined
to say positively that Rogers was one of
tho two men who entered the saloon, hn
said that he resembled the taller one of
the two men who commanded them to
throw up their hands and who fired the
first shot. He ssld he got a good look at
the man before the shooting, as he thought
the whole thing was a "Josh" and he waa
perfectly cool till the shooting commenced.
He described the manner in which tha
men had their hats pulled down over their
heads and how the lower portions of their
faces were concealed wlta. red handker
chiefs spotted white.
Sheriff Cousins' testimony was also sub
stantially a repetition of hla account of his
bearing the shots while waiting to place
some friends on an Omaha car at Tenth
and Broadway and of his hastening to the
aloon and finding the body of Forney lying
In the small side hallway.
Dr. Tlnley, who assisted in the post
mortem examination, testified as to the
nature of Forney's wounds.
C. W. Letchford testified to identifying
Rogers as the man who held him up and
robbed him of $r5 oil the night of March 3
at his butcher shop on South Main street.
The evidence of Chief of Police Tibbits
related to the revolver which was found on
Rogers. After Identifying the weapon he
called attention to the fact that three of
the cartridges in It appeared to have been
recently inserted, while the other three
showed "pin" marks on the caps, and that
three chambers showed fresh powder marks,
while the others did not. At the close of
Chief TIbblts' testimony Coroner Treynor
adjourned the Inquest subject to his call.
Following the Inquest Coroner Treynor,
accompanied by City Engineer Etnyre and
Assistant County Attorney Hess, visited
the saloon where Forney was murdered and
took complete measurements of the In
terior. Several photographs of the place
vere also taken.
The bullet extracted from Forney's arm,
he one which caused his death, was found
yesterday to be of exactly the same weight
aa the bullets In the cartridges taken from
Rogers' revolver and to exactly correspond
with them In every particular. The other
two bullets, the one which entered For
ney's hip and the one which lodged In the
wall at the back of the stove, were too
badly defaced to make comparisons.
A grip believed to be the property ot
Rogers was found yesterday morning by
Detective Callaghan at the Kiel hotel, where
Rogers Is said to have registered last Sat
urday morning, giving the name of Frank
Parsons of Burlington, la. The man who
registered aa Parsons has not appeared at
the hotel since the arrest of Rogers. There
seems little doubt but that the grip be
longs to the man under arrest, as some
of the ahlrta contained in it were marked
"W. C. Rogers" and ' there was alio a
pair of ci-ffs matching one of the shirts
which Rogers received from the Evans
laundry at the time he was placed n-ler
arrest. Among the contents was alio a
number of catalogues of cheap Jewelry, a
"phoney" gold watch and chain, but noth
ing that would tend to connect tiogrrs
with the crime with which he Is charged.
Rogers has not yet been arraigned, but
probably will be today. When taken be
fore Justice Ouren, who Is acting as polico
judge during Judge Ecott'a absence, Rog
ers In answer to a question ot Justice Ouren
said he waa 35 years of age and waa born
in Columbus, O. He said he had been in
Hot Springs, Ark., for aeveral months and
only came to Council Bluffs last week.
"Where do you live?" asked the court.
Rogers' reply waa: "No particular
place," and this he supplemented by stat
ing he was a "Jeweler."
C. W. Letchford filed, an Information be
fore Justice Ouren yesterday charging
Rogers with assault with intent to kill, but
he has not been arraigned on this charge
yet. Rogers has retained Attorneya Llndt
and Schuri. He does not appear to be at
all alarmed over his position and wears a

Pigeon Creek ditch, which, according to
the present plans, would cut through Its
right-of-way. The railroad also filed a
claim for $25,000 damages in the event of
the ditch being constructed aa now planned.
For the portion of Its right-of-way which
would be taken for the ditch the railroad
asks $2,000. The ditch it claims would
necessitate the replacing of a trestle
bridge with a girder b.ldge, and to meet
this expenses the railroad asks $18,000. The
railroad further claims that the ditch would
necessitate a raising of the grade at the
point of Intersection and thia would occa
sion a permanent "bump" In ita tracks,
and tor this it demands $5,000.

City Assessor Everest has completed the
assessment rolls tar enough to be abla to
estimate that the assessment for 190S on
real and personal property will show an In
crease of at least $1,000,000 over that for
The assessment on real property for 1901
waa. In round numbers, $10,800,000, while
this year It will reach tll.200.000, an In
crease of $600,000. This Increase In the as
sessment la not due to aa Increase In the
valuation of city property, but to tha Im
provements which have been mad la the
last two years. Real estate le only as
sessed every two yeara.
In 1901 the1 assessment on personal prop
erty amounted to $2,290,000, while this
year it will reach $2,700,000, an Increase of
$410,000. Tha Increase le dne to the In
creased assessment of the motor, water
works and electric and gaa companies.
The Increase In the assessment will mean
much for the city, aa it will add approxi
mately $12,000 to ita revenues tor the com
ing year. Of the $12,000, the general fund
will receive about $3,000.
Assessor Everest expects It will be fully
a month before the assessment books are
completed and ready to be turned over to
the county authorities.

Governor Cummins today replied to an
Inquiry from Secretary of Stato John Haf
on a matter of great Interest to all German
people in thia country. Secretary Hay bad
received a letter from Consul Mason at
Frankfort giving the text of a new German
marriage law which went Into effect Jan
uary 1, 1900, which requires, among other
things, before a marriage certificate can"
issue to a resident of some foreign coun
try "a certificate by the proper authorities
of his native home, or state to the effect
that the authorities know ot no Just causa
or Impediment why the marriage should not
take place." There are many Germane
who go back to the fatherland to marry.
The consul reports that persons coming
from the Statea have experienced trouble
In getting married under this new German
law. All the certificate they could produce
would be one -from reputable persona ac
quainted with them atatlng personal knowl
edge that the applicant for marriage It
eligible, but the German maglstratea have
refu9rfl to accept these certificates unless
a consular officer certifies that no other
certificate is possible and that the United
States laws do not provide for court rec
ords in such matters. But Secretary Hay
points out that under the regulations con
suls are forbidden to make any such cer
tificates. Secretary Hay wrote Governor
Cummins to ask If there was any official in
Iowa who baa the power to certify aa to
the eligibility to marriage of any person,
and the governor Informed him that there
is no such officer. It Is expected this will
form the basis of an application to con
gress for an amendment to the consular
regulations giving consuls the power in
Germany to certify as to the facts. But
until this ia done, Americana planning to
wed in Germany would do well to change
