INCREASE IN THE TAX LEVY
Council Thinks More Moiej it leeded
Than Collsoted Lut Tetf.
TOTAL INCREASE SIX AND A HALF MILLS
Of This Twe Mills Are for Parefcase

Moaey . to Pay the Faadet
Debt of the City.
Taxpayers of Council Bluffs can look for
a material Ircrease In the city ta levy
for 190$ if the city council remains of the
same mind It was yesterday. At a meet
ing held yesterday afternoon, to discuss
the matter the city council practically de
cided on a tax levy aggregating 42H mills.
which is 6tt mills higher than last year.
This was the shape the matter waa In
when the council adjourned to meet next
Monday afternoon to take final action.
In the first place the city council decided
to make a levy of 2 mills for the sinking
fund to be created for the purchase or
construction of a waterworks plant, this
authority belqjr given the city council un
der the ordinance passed Monday night.
The question has arisen, however, of the
right of the city council to order this tax
levy until the people at a special election
to be called for the purpose shall have by
their vote approved of the proposition for
the city to acquire ownership of the water
works. City Solicitor flnyder gave It. as
his opinion that the city had the right to
anticipate and prder the levy despite the
possibility of the people voting against the
proposition of tr unlelpal ownership.
The city council also decided that it would
be necessary to levy 4 mills for tjne funded
debt fund for which nothing was levied
TUp following shows the tax levy for last
year and that proposed for 1906:

Miss Rose Hoffman and George Edwards
did not get married and live In happiness
forever and one day, as the lovers in tho
story book did.
It was not because Edwards did not press
his suit with seal; forsooth, he missed his
meals for weeks at a time, tossed for
nights on his sleepless couch and wrote
the girl every day. Mlas Hoffman patron
ized the malls to some extent and Cupid
did his best
But the love of brother Intervened.
As the matter now stands Edwards occu
pies a cell at the city Jail with a charge
of forgery against his name, while Miss
Hoffman Is pursuing the even tenor of
her way as a domestic In one of Omaha's
prominent families and declares, at the
youthful age ot 17, she will travel alone for
sonis years to come. If not for aye.
The arreest of Edwards was the result of
a little coup on the part of Miss Hoffman,
who played the role of female detective
and lured the man into the trap that was
sprung Tuesday evening, when Edwarda
reluctantly came to Omaha froru Council
Bluffs On the understanding Miss Hoffman
would pack her trunk instanter and go with
IilV to Chicago., where Hymen was In
waiting to officiate at the prospective nup
tials. As soon as Edwards landed In
Omaha a detective took him hand and he
was placed under arrest.
Edwards Is charged with forging the
name of A. R. Hoffman, a brother of Miss
Hoffman, to a check calling for 150 and
which was passed by Edwards at the City
Savings bank. It Is alleged.
Girl Tells Her Story.
The stop- as told by Miss Hoffman Is that
she met Edwards two months ago at the
Victoria hotel, where the man fell desper
ately In love with her. The girl's brother
left the city, leaving In charge of his
sister his deposit book, showing he had
WJ) at the City Savings hank. Edwards
made a proposal to Miss Hoffman that she
secure the consent of her brother to lend him
a few hundred dollars to start In business
with, saying the money would soon be repaid.
Mlsr Hoffman wrote her brother and re
ceived an unfavorable reply, which letter,
the prosecution -lalms, Edwards got hold of
and thus learned tho signature of Hoffman,
which enabled him to get SW) from the bank.
In addition to this sum. Miss Hoffman
gave the man 114. The next scene shows
Edwards maklhg for ocher parts, with
Miss Hoffman thinking it all over.
Then Miss Hoffman got her wits about
her and kept track of Edward by corre
spondence, leading him to believe she came
Into possession of the balance of her
brother's accounts. Edwards wass arrested
at Marengo, 111., but before the Omaha
authorities could get , to him escaped in
some manner. Ho then went to Chicago,
from which point he wrote the woman a
large bundle of burning effusions. Chief of c
Detectives Dunn has the billets-doux in his
