The IhJjiKiion suit brought by. the Uy
of Council Bluffs six years ago to restrain
the l"nlon Pacific railroad from using
t'nlon avenue, on which Its tracks from
Ninth street and Broadway to the trans
fer depot sre. will have ' to : be brought
to trial at the, September term of federal
court air be dismissed. Judge McPherson
yesterday had the r1ik of the court
serve notice to this effect upon the city
The right to occupy t'nlon avenue with
Its tracks was granted to the t'nlon Pa
cific by an ordinance passed June 30. 1W3.
It la a question, however, whether this
ordinance wns ever regularly approved
by the then mayor, Thomas Bowman. The
conditions of the ordinance were that thi
t'nlon Pacific should construct and main
tain passenger and freight depots at the
Junction of t'nlon avenue and Broadway.
at which waa to be received and delivered
all local freight consigned to or from
Council Bluffs over the t'nlon Pacific, ex
cepting such freight as might be ordered
by consignees or consignors to and from
private warehouses, sidetracks or else
where, and to operate dummy trains be
tween Ninth street and Broadway and
Omaha, fit and suitable to accommodate
first -class travel.
In December. lv9, the t'nlon raclfic
having requested that it be realesed from
Its requirement to operate the dummy
trains, an ordinance was passed by the
city council providing In consideration of
a release' on the part of. the city of the
t'nlon Pacific from the obligation to con
tinue running its dummy trains on Union
avenue the I'nlon" Pacific was to Join with
the other railroads centering in Council
Bluffs In constructing and maintaining a
union depot. This ordinance waa ac
cepted by the t'nlon Pacific, but as Is well
known the t'nlon depot project was never
When the suit was brought to enjoin
the t'nlon Pacific , from laying another
track on I'nlon avenue six years ago it
waa contended that the railroad had for
feited Its,, rights to the thoroughfare, but
for some reason or other the suit was
never pushed. At times, however, tho
pending suit has been used to some extent
by city councils as a club over the railroad
when any matter might be. In controversy
between the city and the railroad.- v
It Is doubtful it the sii'.t will be prose
cuted at the September term of federal
ourt and. will be, it Is expected, stricken

gram. I Governor Cummins this afternoon
sent to the legislature his response to the
tillllllnnd resolution calling on him to ex
plain his statements concerning the rnll
roud lobby opHsing the primary election
The letter Is devoid of sensational fix
tures. Answering the question lis to "how
money Is being used by the railroads to
defeat the primary bill" the governor went
Into detulls, telling how the lobby works,
"It SK-nds money, great sums of money,
but it rarely bribes. It iiigratl.itVs Itself
into the confidence of men through the
respectability, the capacity and the di
plomacy of its representatives."
In a similar vein through five puges of
typewritten manuscript the governor ex
plains the workings of the lobby. As to
the question in the resolution ns to "what,
legislators, If any, have been tho recipients
of this money?" the governor replica thai
no Ingenuity of construction can torture
his statement Into such a charge. As to
who are the lobbyists, the governor states
that the legislature Is well aware who they
are und can learn their location best by
consulting the hotel registers.
