"Tho whole thing seems like a dream to

action," wag the statement of Hans C.
Casterson, charged with the theft of a val
uable horse belonging to Samuel French, a
farmer ot Boomer township. In police court
Casterson borrowed the , horse from
French last Fridny and with the owner's
son drove to town. While young French
was doing some shopping Casterson drove
over to Omaha, where after trading the
horse he went on a spree and was arrested
It developed that . Casterson traded the
horse for knottier with Jule Althaus of 817
Leavenworth street and received $2 to hoot.
The horse ho received from Althaus he sold
to J. W. Vandlvler, who conducts a livery
barn at 1718 Cass street,' for $26. As Cas
terson was under the influence of liquor
Vandlvler only paid him $3 and told him to
call around the next day for the remaining
$23. Casterson yesterday denied receiving
any money from Althaus or Vandlvler and
disclaimed any knowledge of the entire
transaction. In order, however, that French
might recover his horss without further

the animal to French.

The removal of Miss Jensen and Miss
Whistler met with considerable opposition.
Members Davenport Tinley and Weater
dahl protesting against the action of the
committee. President Hess and Members
Cooper, Gorman and Shugart stood by the
committee's report and the recommendation
carried the day.
A petition bearing nearly 100 names asking
for the retention of Miss Whistler was
presented, as well as letters from former
City Buperintendent II. B. Hay-den and
President Homer W. Beerloy of the Btate
normal school, both ' of whom highly en
dorsed Miss Whistler as teacher.
Discussion over the dropping of these
two teachers lasted upwards of two hours
and at times was heated, but ths supporters
of the two teachers were In the minority
and despite an effort of Colonel Davenport
to have action on the report of the com
mittee postponed for one week so that the
matter might be further Investigated, Mem
bers Cooper and Shugart comprising the
teachers committee, with the support of
President Hess and Member Gorman car
ried their point
Colonel Davenport took the position that
It was signally unfair to pick out two teach
ers out of 141 for removal because of com
plaints from dissatisfied patrons and ho
said that the removal of these two teachers
would be followed by charges being filed
gainst a number of other teachers.
TALK OF CREEK AND TELEPHONE!

Connection with the Independent telephone
companies operating In southwestern Iowa
and ways and means to prsvent the period
ical overflow of Indian creek and provide
an ' adequate drainage system for Council
Bluffs were the two Important topics dis
cussed at the publlo meeting held last
night tn the rooms of the Commercial club.
The meeting was largely attended by repre
sentative buainess men of the city And much
Interest taken In the discussions.
The question of securing connection with
the Independent telephone lines was first
taken up, there being a number of repre
sentatives of the Independent companies
present at the Invitation of Secretary Reed

The Independent representatives Impressed
upon the meeting the advantages which
would accrue to Council Bluffs by having
connection with the Independent line op
eratlng In the territory tributary to it
While all the Independent companies tn
this section of the state would be willing
to take stock In a local company they said.
the business men of Council Bluffs must
take the Initiative, organize a company.

The Independent companies would co-op-
erote by extending their lines to the cor
porate limits of the city. The majority of
the stock, they said, should be taken by
After a lengthy discussion of the ques
tlon the meeting appointed F. J. Day. F. W.
Miller and E. H. Lougee a committee to
confer with the Independent telephone rep
resentatives with a view to ascertaining
exactly what was needed. This committee
and the Independent telephone representa
tives) then adjourned to the Grand hotel to
confer and make room for the discussion
on the Indian creek problem.
Tho committee In session at the Grand
hotel pawd a resolution that the Commer
cial club should at once organize a local
company to form connection with the out
side Independents, In which ,the outside
companies agree to take stock.
With the aid of numerous maps, old
and new. City Engineer Etnyre explained
to the meeting his plan to divert the waters
of Indian creek at Bryant street north
to Big lakeland thence to the Missouri
river. This he contended was the only feas
ible plan and one that had been approved
by all the chief engineers of the railroads
centering In Council Bluffs.
By diverting the waters of Indian creek
In this manner Mr. Etnyre explained that
the sewer would be sufficient to carry off
all surface waters In times of heavy rains.
When Indian creek, however, filled up the
("sewers became clogged and useless and
refused to do their work until the creek
subsided.. All this trouble, he claimed,
would be averted by diverting the channel
of Indian creek.
On motion of Colonel Davenport, Mayor
Macrae was requested to Invite the rail
roads" centering In the city to each send a
competent engineer here to confer with, the
city engineer regarding plans for the f rain
age' of the city and the prevention 'of the
overflow of Indian creek.
County Surveyor Tostevln suggested that
for Immediate relief the creek should be
dredged from Nineteenth avenue to the
river, but Alderman Weaver suggested that
this would cost $10,000 and there was only
$6,000 at present In the sewer fund. Treas
urer True suggested that the balance could
be taken from the contingent tfund.
The disposition of Indian creek will still
leave the southern portion of the city with
out drainage and President .'Van Brunt of
the Commercial club will appoint a. com
mittee of five to devise some pl&n to pro
vide for this section of the city.
