WATER COMPANY WANTS INFORMATION
Desire to Know How and When
City Inteoila to Pay for Works
Itrfora It Fixes a Price on ,
When the application of tlie Council
Blufts, Tabor A Southern Electric Ruilway
company (or an extension of six months'
time In which U complete Its line from this
city to thi Iowa School of thn Deaf was
submitted at the city council meeting last
night there was considerable difference of
opinion among- the 'aldermen as to whether
the request should be even considered. It
was, however, after a lengthy discussion,
referred to the city solicitor for Mm to re
port on at the earliest opportunity.
Bome of the aldermen took the position
that the company having signally failed to
even commence the construction of the
line and that having likewise failed to
finance it, the city should declare the
franchise forfeited, while others urged that '
as the company had spent considerable
money In making surveys and other pre
liminaries It was entitled to some consid
eration at least at the hands of the city
cauncll and that to delay action (in the
request until the eity solicitor had reported
on It would do no one any harm.
During the discussion thu announcement
wag made that Congressman Smith and
other prominent cltlsens of Council Bluffs
were hack of the project to build art elec
tric line, for which the survey Is now being
made, which would pass by the. School for
the deaf, fiy some it was contended that
to permit the Tabor company to retain
Its franclilso after forfeiting It by failure
to build the line to the School for the Deaf
by July 1 of this year, would hamper per
haps the construction of the line proposed
by Congressman Smith and his confreres.
Alderman Tinley suggested that an exten
sion should only be granted to the Tabor
people conditional on them putting up a
bond to complete the line to the school
within the six months asked for.
Motor Company Wants Information.
The special committee on municipal own
ership of the waterworks plant asked forv
and wait granted further time In which to
make Its report. In connection with this
matter a communication was received from
K. W. Hart, manager of the waterworks
company. In answer to the request of the
elty that the company plare a price on Its
plant and mnke same known to the coun
cil by July I. The communication "In part
wns as follows:
x . The fact that the city Is without money
a with which to purchase the plant, and Is
.i beyond Its legal limit of Indebtedness and
y consequently wunout cretin, manes inn
4 ' task of arranging with the persons In
terested in tne water company, uno ui iuiib
explanations and much detail.
In section one of the resolution It Is
asked that tTie water company "Indicate"
the terms of payment based upon the
ability of the city to pay therefor, aris
ing out of the water tax and hydrant
rentals. As the water tax and hydrant
rentals cannot amount to more than $27,000
or $28,000 in a year, It Is probably the In
tention to use the funds derived from
private consumers to make up for the
charges of operating expenses, interest on
the purchase price and payment on prin
cipal. - ' ...
As the receipts frem the consumers will
emter- so largely -Into he" total receipts
and as to the fixing of rates to consumers
will be entirely In the hands of the city
It will not be possible for the water com
pany to determine what "the ability of the
cltv to pay" may be.
It will much facilitate the negotiations
of the water company's officers with Its
security holders If the city council or Its
special water committee would decide the
questions .upon which the annual Income
may be figured.
Manager Hart also called attention In
the letter to possible shrinkage In Income
owing to loss of railroad patronage, etc.,
and the necessary expenditure of part of
the Income for much needed extensions.
The communication was referred to the
nerlsl water committee consisting of
Aldermen Weaver, McMUlen and Younker

ness were granted to W. H. McKentle,

Several clues In the double motor rar
holdup of Sunday night were run to ground
yesterday by the authorities, but no tanpl

ties have but little to work on, as the men
held up were able, to furnish only Imper
fect descriptions of the robbers and even
these descriptions varied.
Th two robbers, mho evidently were not
amateurs at the business, took every pre
caution from being Identified by their vic

trees a little distance from the tracks and
made their victims stand In front of them

ordered to lenve Ms car Ralph remembered
having placed $11) of his receipts In a pocket
book and before leaving the car he suc
ceeded In dropping the pneketbonk behind
a seat without attracting the attention of
the robbers. One of the robbers, when
searching Ralph, was about to strike him
with Ms revolver when Motorman Mathe
son Interceded, saying that Ralph was only
working "extra" and therefore could not
have any more money on him than that
secured by the robbers. This seemed to
satisfy the robbers.
At first suspicion pointed to two men,
one of them a former employe of the motor
company, ns being the robbers, but In
vestigation by Sheriff Canning and his
deputies yesterday morning satisfied the
authorities that they were pot Implicated
and though warrants had been secured from
Justice Field's court no arrests were made.
The sheriff's force in Inclined to the be
lief that the holdup was committed by
Omaha men and that they crossed the river
In a boat shortly after the robbery. Tracks
from the place of the holdup to the river
bank under the motor bridge where a barge
Is tied were easily dlscernable yesterday
morning. It Is lielleved the men had their
boat tied to the barge, which they used
as a landing place.
While searching the bottoms along tho
river early yesterday morning Deputy,
Sheriff McCaffrey and Detective Richard

none of the train men Identified him as
one of the robbers.

OUR LETTER BOX
Conlter Mine ills Mite.
OMAHA, July 3. To the Editor of The
Bee: I have been very much surprised to
find published In your paper a number of
articles, more or less sensational In char
acter relating to the recent visit of myself
and daughters to relatives In the east. The
circumstances were briefly as follows: Mrs.
Coulter has repeatedly for tho pust three
years refused me an outing with my chil
dren and fo six months past has refused
me even seeing them or enjoying a meal
with them, although she has accepted
money for their support. The court has
never awarded her tho custody of the girls
over myself In any manner. However, not
wishing to appear cruel or unjust to her,
I allowed them to remain In her custody
without remonstrance even under these
conditions for months, hoping for an ad
justment of our differences. Becoming
desirous of seeing and having a visit with
my daughters and Judging from the past
that all such requests made to their mother
would be denied, I went tq Iake Street
school near the close of the term and usked
the custody of my children, as 1 had a
perfect right to do, but In order that Mrs.
Coulter might know of this fact and not
be In any manner disturbed, a letter by
special messenger was sent her at 10:30 a.
m. of the day, informing her that the girls
were going with me for a visit, that she
need not worry over their absenco, that I
should take the best of care of them and
that I would return them in good condition.
This statement to her lias been kept in
every particular and the girls are now at
the close of our visit at her home with her
parents. Moreover, that the absence of the
children should not be construed as cruel
In any manner she has been Informed sev
eral times each week as to their condition
by themselves, as well as myself. At no
time have they been kept under the slight
est restraint or 1n seclusion, they have at
tended public meetings, Sunday services,
gone on excursions and picnics as they
wished. In short had a general good time
during th-ir entire stay with me and at no
time did they express a desire to return
home or a wish to see their mother. It Is
quite obvious had I desired to cause Mrs.
Coulter any real concern as to the children
or cared to have abducted them from the
country as Intimated it could very easily
have been accomplished. but such never was
my purpose or Intention In the slightest
degree. I believed and still believe I had
a perfect right and was quite Justifiable
In doing what I did though I do not thirst
for public notoriety, nor do I crave sym
pathy to such an extent that I would per
vert the facts or only publish a portion
of themto secure such ends. I give you
this statement trusting your sense of Jus
tice will give the same equal consideration
with those other articles that were mislead
ing In every particular.

the entire committee was present, and they
had already systematized their work. The
St. Paul biennial will open Thursdny morn
ing, May 11. and will continue through
the following Thursday evening, making
eight days. It was decided to have the

(4 to 6) to the various conferences. By
this plan only one committee will lie In
session at one time, and only one confer

given up to a large reception In the capl
lol, one afternoon to receptions In private
homes, one whole day to an outdoor ex
cursion and vesper service will be held on
Sunday afternoon. The state presidents
will mnke their reports at a special even
ing session and all foreign clubs repre
sented by delegates will make reports at
one of the morning sessions; each confer
ence will be held after the committee has
held Its session and each committee Is
limited to one speaker, who shall precede
the chairman's report. The evenings as
suggested are' htnte presidents, music,
