Cooatr $01 & Tain Stsrg to Condoct
SOME COMPLICATIONS LIKELY TO ARISE
Ceaslderable Work Already Doae oa
Coatrarts fader Old Law fVmlesi
Have Bee a Declared la
' valid by Coarta,
The new petition asking for the estab
lishment of the Harrison-Pottawattamie
county drainage ditches was acted on fa
vorably yesterday by the Board of County
Commissioners. R. B. Wilson of Carson
waa reappointed commissioner, and he, in
conjunction with W. H. Fensler, the com
missioner appointed by Harrison county,
will select an engineer. The commission
ers and engineer will then make a report
to the supervisors of both counties, who
will then appoint commissioners to make
the assessments. In view of the fsct thftt
the old drainage law was declared null and
void . by the supreme court, the contracts
for the construction of the ditches will
have to be relet and this Is likely to raise
more or less of controversy.
The Harrison-Pottawattamie county
drainage ditches consist of the Allen creek,
Willow creek and Boyer river cut-oft. R.
A Brown & Co. of Washington, Ind., had
the contract for the Allen snd Willow
creek ditches, but have done no work. W.
A. Smth dl Co., who had the contract for
the Boyer river cut-off, hsve 'done con
siderable work and the question now arises
If they ore not awarded the new contract
how will they secure pay for the work
which they have don 7 ' ,
Last year Thomas Toetevln, now county
surveyor of Pottawattamie county, was ap
pointed engineer by the commissioners for
the Harrison-Pottawattamie ditches, but It
Is said that the Harrison county people
are opposed now to bis reappointment.
The board also acted favorably on the
new petition tor the Pigeon creek ditch In
Crescent township, for which E. A. Wlck
ham had the contract last year and on
Which he had not commenced work when
the supreme court declnred the old drain
age law Invalid. As this ditch traverses
Pottawattamie county only the appoint
ment of an engineer la needed and County
Surveyor Tostevln was named by the
On Ditch Nearly Done.
Work on the Fenaler dltoh In Rockford
township has been nearly completed by
W. H. Pratt, and as yet no new petition
has been filed with the board, although it
Is expected that one will be. Should MY.
Pratt fall to secure the contract under the
new order of things the Mm question as
In the case of W. A. Smith & Co. on the
Boyer river cut-off ditch will arise as from
what source Mr. Pratt will seoure payment
for the work he has completed.
There la some question as to whether or
not the persons who filed the petitions for
ths establishment of the ditches last year
and put up bonds with the county authori
ties will be liable for the work done by
the contractors. i-
The board adjourned to June 17, at which
time It is believed the commissioners can
make their reports so that the necessary
preliminaries under the new law oan be
completed, thus enabling work to be be
gun during the fall.
It was decided to have the public open
ing of the new poor farm on Wednesday,
June 39, and the matter of securing a spe.
clal train from the Great Western was left
with County Auditor Innes.
The report of F. Ia Reed, olerk of the
district court, for the five months ending
May 31 showed that the feea collected in
olvll cases amounted to $1,650.30, and in
criminal cases to 146.
Opunty Treasurer Consigny'a report
showed that the fees in his office from
March 1 to June 1 amounted to 11.941.20,
These fees are a perquisite of the county
treasurer In addition to the salary of 16.000
as fixed by the county board. The feea 111
the county adulter's office for the same
period only amounted .to $128.90.
DIFFERENCE) OVER SALARIES
Bona Stgas of Clash la the Board f
Shall the salaries Of ths newly elected
teachers be fixed after or be forte assign
ment to grades Is a question on which the
Board of Education is said to be divided.
Chairman Davenport of the committee on
finance, which recommends the salaries to
be paid for the ensuing year, takes the
position that the N rules and regulations
governing the public schools of Council
Bluffs provlds they shall ba fixed after
tsslgnment to grads, while other members
contend that the custom has been to fix
the salaries as soon as possible aftor elec
tion. Rule 81, on which Colonel Davenport
relies, reads as follows: , "The salaries of
sll teachers shall be adjusted as soon after
their assignment to grades shall have been
made by the board as Is practicable."
Section t of nil 81 Is as follows; "In
fixing the salaries of teachers, their quali
fications as to successful experience, In
dustry and practical skill, faithfulness and
professional Improvement shall be espe
cially regarded." This being the ess Colo
nel Davenport -contends that until his com
mittee is fully advised by the superintend
ent as to each teacher on these various
points, the salaries cannot be fixed..
It Is said that In view of the removal of
Mlsa Jensen and Miss-Whistler, members
of the board who were opposed to such
sctlon will Insist on a detailed report from
the superintendent as to ths qualifications
of every teacher on the list and that when
the salaries are fixed In accordance with
such report there will be several surprises
President Hess stated yesterday after
noon that he might call a special meeting
of the board for this afternoon or evening
to settle this question. He took the stand
that the custom heretofore prevailing of
fixing tha salaries before assignment should
b adhered to,
Creek Needs Atteatlea.
The special committee of the Commercial
club on Indian creek met last evening end
Informally discussed ths problem of tho
city dralnags. Ths committee la of the
unanimous opinion that Indian ersak needs
Immediate attention and should bs cleaned
from Nineteenth avenue to the river, but
Is not prepared to report on the method
until It secures figures from City Engineer
Etnyre showing the estimated number of
yards of dirt which will have to bs re
moved. Secretary Used submitted to the commit
tee a report made to the city council In
1884 by Beneaette Williams, ths civil engi
neer who planned the drainage and sewer
eyatem of Council Bluffs. The report con
tains an exhaustive discussion of Indian
creek and Engineer Williams recommended
that tbs water f ths crssk bs diverted st
the north dry limits. The plan suggested
by Mr. Williams provided for a 7,000-foot
tunnsl through ths hills at an estimated
cost of $30,000. He also recommended a
tunnel running north from Main street to
Cut Off lake, this being much on the tines
of ths plan proposed by City Engineer
Present at the meeting last night were

club last evening at the city halt, were
conspicuous by their absence, with the ex

works was the chief topic discussed and
Hon. Spencer Smith sf1dresed the meeting
on this subject at length. His talk was In
opposition to such a proposition.

Iowa Isprem Court Decides Against
Armours In Test Case.
DES MOINES, June lO.-The Iowa
supre'me court today affirmed a decision
of the lower Court prohibiting the sals of
colored oleomargarine unless the state
dairy laws are complied with.
The suit waa brought by the Iowa Dairy
commission against the Armour Packing
company, and waa In the nature of a test.
The Arhmours contended that their oleo
margarine was made of the color of yellow
butter through natural process in its manu
facture, snd that therefore their dealers
were not compelled to exhibit the label.
The first Indictment was quashed through
technicalities. Upon the second trial the
state secured a favorable verdict snd an
appeal was taken. The supreme court
holds that it Is not enough for the pack
ing company to prove that its oleo
margarine Is made yellow through natural
processes, but that It Is violation of the
state law to sell any' color and kind of
oleomargarine without the label.

to have an armory post. It will not - be
an artillery, as was at first .proposed, as
the appropriation for such was not se
cured, but it will be sn infantry, and will
be known as Company C of the Fifty-fifth.
The required number of serviceable men Is
fifty-five and of that number forty-five have
already passed the required examination
and the remaining ten can easily be se
cured. Araaa la not really In the Fifty
fifth district, but on account of this being
the home of General Lincoln, It IS proposed
to establish It- here. The necessary stock
has all been subscribed for the erection of
ths building which it is proposed to build,
and will probably cost In the neighborhood
Of $8,000 when completed. It will be so
constructed that It will serve as an opera
house aside from regular drill purposes.
General Lincoln Is In St. Louis at the pres
ent time and ths mustering in of the men
will take place as soon as he returns, which
will be some time next week.
