City Do the Work, While Others
Think It Shoald Be Don
on Contract.
That Indian creek from Nineteenth ave
nue to Its outlet at the Missouri river must
be dredaod and that the work must be
done with a little delay as possible was
the decision reached by the city council at
a special meeting ' yesterday afternoon.
Whether the dredging will be done by the
city or by contract, however, waa not de
termined. Tho lack of funds to do the work Is the
problem which confronts the council, but a
plan was suggested at yesterday's meeting
which It Is thought will solve the difficulty.
City Treasurer True suggested that the
city purchase A dredge on credit and pay
for It. next year, making provision for Its
cost when making the levy ln August
Treasurer True explained to the aldermen
that after the expense of maintaining tho
department there would be about 14,500 left
In the sewer fund and this he estimated
would be sufficient to pay for the labor and
help In working the dredge. The dredge It
)s figured will cost all the war from $4,000
to $7,000.
The question of the right of the city to
anticipate such an expenditure was raised
and both City Treasurer True and Attorney
Snyder gave It as tholr opinions that the
city would be justified In so doing In face
of the emergency which now exists. With
some of the aldermen the plan of purchas
ing a dredge meets with favor while others
are opposed to It. Aldermen Maloney,
Weaver and YounkermnH, the special com
mittee of the city council on Indian creek,
were Instructed to secure at once from
manufacturer of auch machinery quota
tions on price of a dredge suitable for work
on Indian creek. '
Some of the aldermen are opposed to tho
city purchasing a, dredge and favor having
the work done by contract. They point to
the fact that in the years post the city has
at different times purchased expensive ma
chines, uch a treet sweepers, graders,
etc., find after they have been used for a
year or so they have been relegated to the
junk pile on the lot used by the streets and
alleys- department.' This, they say, would
be the fate of the dredge and they feel that
It would be an expensive investment for
the city.
Use Board of Health.
In order to strengthen If needed the light
of th city council to expend this sum of
money on Indian creek Mayor Macrae, sug
gested that the Board of Health take the
necessary steps to condemn Indian creek
as a menace to the public health an- order
the city council to have It cleaned and put
ln shape to carry off the water without fur
ther delay. This action, is is understood,
wilt be taken by the Board of Health ait Its
meeting next Monday . night, '. '
City Engineer Etnyre accompanied the
special" Committee appointed" by" President
Van Brunt of the Commercial club yester
day afternoon over the course of the creek
from Nineteenth avenue to the river. The
condition of the creek waa a revelation to
every member of the committee. In many
places It was found that the creek had be
come filled with' mud and debris no within
three feet of the top and that at
ru point on It entire length between Nine
teenth avenue and the river was It wider
than ten feet at the top. Engineer Etnyre
plans to have It widened 'the entire dis
tance to fifteen feet at the top with but a
slight slope on t,he sides, thus making tho
bottom thirteen or fourteen feet wide. Mr.
Etnyra estimate the cost of widening and
deepening the channel at about $10,000.
Bids for th Work.
City Clerk Zurmuehlen reported to the
council that but two bids for the dredg
ing of the creek had been received. They
are from Dean & Bushnell of Glenwood,
la,, who bid 17 cents a yard, and E. A.
Wlskham, who bid 16 cents. Engineer
Etnyre figured on the work costing from
1J to 14 cents a yard. Several of the alder
men ' favor accepting Wlckham's bid and
providing the fund from the contingent
fund or elsewhere. It Is understood that
Wlckham Is willing to acept the contraot,
part payment to be made next year, and It
is contended that if the city can legally
purchase a dredge on credit It can:-also
contract for the work to be done on credit.
Some definite action on this important
question may be looked for at the meeting
of the city council next Monday night.
The city council also took up yesterday
afternoon the matter of the engine house
to be erected In the southern part of the
city. The plans for the house, as prepared
by Architect Patterson, were approved and
It was decided to recommend to the South
Side Improvement club that the bid of
the Consolidated Construction company for
a brick building be. accepted.
Bids for Engine House.
Bids- racerved were a follow:
On Brick Building Consolidated Con
struction cpmpany, W.748.8J, complete. In
cluding plumbing; Lund & Sandwick, $3,667;
Jensen Bros., H.H9; C. C. Norguard, $4,-133;
Petersen & Ollbert. 3,8MS.
On Frame Building I.und 4 Sandwick,
$3,6118- Jensen Bros., $3,275.
All bids with the exception of that of the
Consolidated Construction company are
without plumbing, which Is figured at $3U0
Under the arrangement with the South
Side Improvement club, the city Is to pay
an armual rental of per cent on the cost
of the building, with the option at the end
of five year to purchase. the building at
actual coat. A the city will undoubtedly
purchase the building eventually the de
cision of the council yesterday was that
It would be economy to erect a brick build
ing, although It will cost nearly $l.au0 more
than had been originally planned.
Before meeting yesterday afternoon th
aldermen took a drive In the patrol wagon
and Inspected the newly constructed sewer
on North Sixth street, and examined Ben
ton street, the property owner on which
have asked that the width be reduced from
thirty-six to thirty feet, with a view to
having It paved.
The council adjourned to t next Monday

The Board of County Supervisor today
will take up the Harrison-Pottawattamie
county drainage ditch matter and Is ex
pected to take the necessary steps under
the amended law to create the drainage
district anew' and provide for the work
being done Jointly with Harrlsou county
a before.
At the request of the Council Bluff Re
tall Oroosrs' and Butcher' association the
board yesterday decided to Impose a license
on all peddlers of fruit, produce and other
foodstuffs through the county outside of
Council Bluffs. Th law authorise th lm-
poiltlou of a license of not lees than $B
and not exceeding $100 and the supervisors
decided that the rates would be tf0 a year
for foot peddler, $76 for a one-horse wagon
and $100 for a two-horse Wagon. Super
visor Brandes, In favoring the license,
stated that a number of so-called peddler
and hucksters were nothing more or less
than chicken thieve who carried on their
thieving operations under the guise of
hawkers. The imposition of the license, he
believed, would tend materially to stop this
nefarious practice.
The greater part of yesterday's session
was taken up with the semi-annual settle
ment with the county treasurer. The total
tax collections for the six months amounted
to $527.241.90 and the balances ln the sev
eral funds showed an aggregate of $50,-
066.13, but a there is an overdraft of
$.1,948.3$ in the poor fund, the net actual

DES MOINES, June . (Special.) Since
the annual meeting of the stockholders of
the De Moines & Fort Dodge railroad ln
thla city, nothing pew ha developed a to
tho future of that property, save as ther
are increasing signs that the Rock Island
company has no expectation of acquiring
till now. It was known positively two
years ago by the Rock Island management
that control of the stock had passed to
others. A high official stated then that the
Rock Island would pay practically nothing
for the stock, regarding the line a worth
but littlo more than the bonds, which ore
held by the Rock Island Interests. It wns
also stated at that time that If necessary
the Rock Island would build a new rond
into the territory. For some weeks a sur
vey has been going on which parallels the
road between Valley Junction and Perry
This Is ostensibly for an electric Interurbnn
out of Des Moines and right-of-way is
being secured for that purpose. It is now
announced that all the rlghUof-way has
been secured between the , two stations
mentioned. It Is also stated that Instead
of the survey continuing north from. Terry
to Grand Junction it is deflected west to
Jefferson, which would Indicate that this
might be the route to Gowrle. While the
promoters of the interurbnn, who have
been working very quietly, ssy that the
survey Is for an interurbsn line, the right-of-way
is .one that could be used for a
railroad quite as well, and the conviction
prevails all along the line that it is a pre
liminary step on the part of the Rock
Island, nnd laying the foundation for the
building -of a new route to connect with
the Gowrle-Sibley line ln case It Is found
Impossible to secure trackage over the old
Fort Dodge route. But the Rock Island
still ha the $2,500,000 of bonds which stand
as a mortgage against the Fort Dodge
road, and these will have to be disposed of
by whatever company takes the stock.
Rock Inland officials here make no con
cealment of the fact that they hope If it Is
the Minneapolis & St. Louis road that get
the old Port Dodge, to make an arrange
ment by which the Bock Island will run
Its trains to Gowrle from Dcs Moines, but
that If some other company tnkes the Fort
Dodge it Is not expected that any such
lease can be effected. The Rock Island peo
ple will know In time so that. If It la neces
sary, they can construct their now line
this year.
Convention Room' Troubles.
The demo(rars are having more trouble
because of the Hearst movement In Iowa,
The state committee, following precedent,
made arrangement for "Iowa headquar
ters" and rooms for all members of the
committee and the delegates and alternates
at the Jeffdrson hotel In St. Louis, and
these arrangements were completed long
before the holding of the state convention.
Chairman Mercer of the subcommittee ln
charge of this reported to the state com
mittee and delegation at the tinia or the
state convention and It waa satisfactory.
Now Mr. Mercer, as chairman of ihe sub
committee, has mailed to delegates a cnll
for funda to help pay for headquarter
rooms and immediately A. R.. McCook of
Mitchell county, secretary of the delega
tion, sends out a letter to the aama dele
gate notifying them that they are not to
pay Mercer, but to pay H. C. -Evans,' treas
urer of the delegation. He also statea that
the delegation agreed to permit E. M. Can
to select room for headquarters, and In
due time they will be expected to pay for
them. ,1t I found that A. W. Maxwell,
one of those claiming to be state chalrman
and Mr. Carr have both written the dele
gates advising them not to pay any atten
tion to Mercer or the state committee. The
anti-Hearst delegates have agreed, how
ever, to Join with the state committee ln
accepting the headquarters seleoted. It Is
regarded a certain that the Iowa demo
crats will therefore have two state head
quarters at St. Louis.
For BrlavaoV Encampments.'
. General orders hav been Issued from the
office of the adjutant general fixing the
dates for tba encampments of the Iowa Na
tional Guard, and these orders show that
brigade encampments have been decided
upon. The Fifty-fourth and Fifty-sixth
regiments ara to be encamped together
July 14 to !1 and the Fifty-third and Fifty
fifth regiments will camp August 11 to 18.
The signal company will be placed with the
Fifty-fifth. The places have not been se
lected. College Makes Settlement.
The suit of Simpson college against the
estate of the late Rev. E. P. Vail was set
tled today. Mr. Vail was a veteran min
ister and he left a legacy of $.'0,000 to th
college. Then two persons who claimed to
be adopted children of Mr. Vail appeared
on the scene and contested tho will, which
would take most of the estate. They have
practically established , tlislf right to ' Ini
heritance and today a stipulation was filed
in the case by which the college accept
one-fourth of the estate after payment of
all debt. This will materially reduce the
amount due the college.

of Omaha, who desires possession of her

H. Potta, foster parents. The defendants
produced witnesses in ubundanco to prove
the high standing of the Potts family ln
Oniaha and the fact that they, were giving
the child a good .homo and excellent treat
ment. The only question left for Judge
Mcpherson to dispose of was whether or
not a previous trlui of the case In Omaha
constituted an adjudication of the case, so
that he would have no right to allow th
child to remain here. He intimated, how
ever, that h would And It difficult to dis
turb the present status of the child or to
allow Its removal from the present fatnlly
to bo taken by Its real mother, whose bad
character had beerr shown. At the con
