The Northwestern railroad has lot no
time after securing the oonsent of the city
council to the raising of Its tracks across
Broadway In order to permit of the raising
of its bridges, In commencing the work.
C. F. Wiley of the engineering department
of the railroad arrived In the city Thurs
day night and yesterday had a large toro
of men and a steam derrick at work.
The two large steel bridges which span
Indian creek Just north of Broadway be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth streets will be
raised about eighteen Inches and this will
necessitate the raising of the tracks for a
considerable distance on each side. It Is
possible that the platform around the pas
senger depot will also have to be raised.
The raising of the railroad's tracks aoross
Broadway will necessitate the city raising
ths grade of Broadway for a blook at least
each side of them. It Is figured that by re
laying the granite block paving from Ninth
or Tenth street to the Illinois Central's
tracks Junt west of Twelfth street this can
be accomplished with but comparatively lit
The Northwestern railroad has four
bridges across Indian oreek, and It baa con
sented, as the other railroads have, to con
tribute E4.000. or B.000 a bridge, towards the
expense of dredging the creek from Seventh
street to Sixteenth avenue. In addition the
Northwestern has ofTered the use of Ui
platform dredge to the city, the latter
merely to pay for the actual ooet of oper

crew. With the raising of the Northwest

City and Kbowlnc mill Be Made
ns te the Value of Com
it is now up to Council Bluffs to demon
strate to the state executive council by
rarts that the projierty of the t'nlon Pa
cific railroad Is not sufficiently assessed and
thst while the assessment has been ma
terially lowered in the last five years the
value of the property has not decreased.
A. H. Devlson, secretary of the executive
council has written, acknowledging receipt
of the copy of the resolution relative to
the assessment of railroads in this city
passed by the city council at its Inst reg
ular meeting. In his communication Secre
tary Du-laon says as follows:
Permit nie to FiiBret that your people,
who are willing to declare these matters In
resolution form, m-ennre a statement of
facts which would supjKirt the conclusion
and present the same to the executive
council I have no doubt your people, at
least many of them, have gotten the im
pression that the statements of the resolu
tion are substantially correct. The execu
tive council, however, will lie confronted by
the statute an It exists when It conies to
the distribution of the values of railway
property, and while there may lie a very
much larger value of railway property lh
Council r.luffo than is reported by the as
sesnmcnt certified through your city, the
law mukes It impossible to chance the as
sessment except by lncreasitie the assess
ment elsewhere as well as In Council Bluffs.
Fads supportins your contention relative
to the value of the I"nlon Pacific In Coun
cil Bluffs would be gladly received by the
executive council. The representations to
the executive council during the past years
have been directly opposite to your con
tentions, and in order to raise the valua
tion, something tangible, no doubt, should
he presented to the executive council on
which Xrr base the srfme. The resolution as
It Is presented, unsupported by facts, would
not warrant a change In valuations of
property, and I call your attention to the
matter at this time In order thut you mav
not complain, but may fortify yourself
with facts to present to the executive coun
cil. While the city efflclals realise that to
change the assessment of the railroads
whose mileage extends outside the city
under the present system of assessment
cannot be accomplished they glean a ray
of hope from Mr. Davison's letter that it
may le possible to show to the executive
council that the property of the fnlon
Pacific, whose mileage Is entirely within
the city, should be assessed at its former
valuation, in view of the contention thai
the value of Its property has not decreased
In the last five years.
City "ends Reply.
The following reply was sent yesterdav
to Secretary Davison:
We are well aware that the executive
council does not make, neither can it
change the existing laws relative to the
mode of railway assessment, which wei
know is unjust to terminals; for instance,
the Mason City & Port Dodge railway pur
chased its right-of-way In this city at an
expense of more than l2(Wi.0tX( for private
property and then expended over $1(10.000.
and todav the taxable value of its property
Is S10.847.K6. A similar condition exists with
the Inibuque-Sioux City railway tlllinols
We do not expect relief from this unjust
law at this time, and know that an In
crease to us would make a corresponding
increase of assessment elsewhere, excepting
such roads whose mileare is eatirely within
our city, as is the case with the Union
Inasmuch as the assessment of the rail
roads Is entirely taken from ub locally it
Is difficult for us to furnish facts supjKirt
Ing our contentions without data to work
upon, such as is furnished the executive
council by the different roads. However,
we do know that five years ago the Union
Pacific was assessed at ioo.uuu per nine
and now at only Hw,omi, and we do not
believe that there has been an actual de
crease in value. If you will furnish us
with a copv, at our expense if necessary,
of the last statement of the Union pacific,
as required to be furnished by section 1SH4
of the code, we will endeavor to support
our contention with facts or prove to our
selves that we are wrong.
Mayor Macrae announced last evening
that he would call a special meeting of the
city council to consider this matter and a
special oommittee will probably be ap
pointed to take up the matter and secure
the necessary data on which to make a
showing before the executive council. It
is likely that the assistance of the Com
mercial club in the matter will be asked.

County Attorney Hess yesterday In discus

the Pottawattamie County Anti-Saloon

the saloon men would see the matter in the
right light and not force the hands of the
organization represented by the reverend
gentlemen. Further, Mr. Hess said he
would Insist that all money Blot machines
be removed from the saloons, and this, he
added, would apply to the entire county
and not Council Bluffs alone. The Antl
Saloon league is insisting that the saloons
be closed on Sundays, and If this has to be
done in the city the resort at Lake Man

SUNSTROKE NOT ACCIDENTAL
Iauranee C ommisaieBer of ObIo
Rales tt Oat of AerlAeat
Insurance Commissioner Vorys of Ohio
has issued a letter to all accident lnsuranoe
companies doing business in Ohio, setting
forth his ruling that death by sunstroke,
freezing, septicaemia and hydrophobia. In
asmuch as they may or may not result from
accidental causes, cannot be legally in
cluded in an aocldent policy.
The letter Is the result of the commis
sioner being asked to pass on the legality
of a clause in the policy written by a com
pany doing business in Ohio, tn which
desth by sunstroke was called an accident.
Other companies desired to incorporate the
clause. He made a searching study of the
causes of sunstroke.
Sunstroke comes from the overstimulation
of the heat center in the brain, and Is
caused by the body heat being maintained
at a high point during a number of hours.
The affliction gets its nsme from the fact
that the victim falls suddenly. If sunstroke
was declared an aocldent apoplexy would
be tn the same class, Mr. Vorys says.
The Investigation revealed the fact that
sunstroke, contrary to popular belief, comes
often In the night, when the sun's ray Is
hid by the earth. Chicago Inter Ocean.
