Committee Decides to Seotire Senicet of in
CONFIDENT OF RAISING THI FUNDS
fifty Thousand Dollars the tniiinl
Derided I pou as Necessary for
Krectlon and Ksjalpment of
a ultable RalldtHg.
"That e are tu have a Young Men's
Christian association building In Council
Bluffs bun been definitely decided and now
the only question for us to determine is
wlien are we to g"t It?" declared KVank C.
Hiker last night at the meeting of the
committee having In charge the Young
Alen'e Christian association project. The
confidence felt by Mr. Rlker that the
project would be ultimately brought to a
successful Issue aas apparently shuied by
the other members of the committee.
The meellng last night was to consider
the advlsahllltyX of securing some well
known Young Men's Christian association
worker from outside to take charge of the,
campaign for funds. Some favored having
the campaign conducted by a local man,
such as Mr. Hiker, who froiu the start has
been the prime mover In the project to
establish an association in this city with
Its own building. Mr. Riker, however, de
clined to take charge of the campaign, al
though he freely offered hiB service to
work with some "campaigner" of repute
from outside. It was decidVfl that a man
from outside be secured and that an active
campaign for funds be commenced as soon
as such a mun can be obtained. Chair
man Smith was Instructed to appoint a
committee of five, which will from this on
take active charge of the project. This
committee Mr. Smith expects to name to
day. F. J. Day slated that in his opinion,
when the campaign is really begun In ear
nest on a systematic plan, there would be
little difficulty In raising the required
amount, which aa a starter has been placed
at JoO.ooo. He figured out for the commit
tee that $J7,3iO could be raised In the city
as follows:: Five 11.000 donations. $5,C00;
twenty WQ donations, 110,000; thirty t-'IWl do
nations, tT.SOO; 100 $100 donations, $10.(100; In
smaller sums, $o,0ou.
Frank Rlker and Robert Wallace said
they would raise $10,000 If the committee
would raise t he balance. From their re
marks It was Inferred they had strong
hopes of securing that sum, or at least
$0,100, from one certain party.
The committee of five to be appointed
by Chairman Smith is , tQ,f at( An,c.er.ejiter
Into negotiations with some well Rrlown
Young Men's Christian association "funds
raiser," but It Is not likely that the active
campaign will be begun until about August.
The committee, however, has no Intention
of lotting the matter go by default or in
terest in the project to flag. It has decided
that a Young Men's Christian association
Is a necessary Institution In Council Bluffs
and It Is determined that there shall be one
and that.lt shall be suitably housed in a
building of its own.
It was suggested also last night that
some assistance might be obtained from
the several railroads centering In .Council
Bluffs and the committee will at once enter
Into communication with the officials of
BIG DRCDVG A WHIT 10 EI.KI'HAKT
Council Cannot Final Money lo Care
for the Machine-. -
That the big Indian creek dredge is fast
becoming a white elephant on the hands of
the city is the opinion expressed by several
of the councilmen. Since last fall it liaa
been anchored in the creek & little way
south of the city limits. It stood the rav
ages of winter well and failed to drag its
anchor during the heavy rains. It is feared,
however, that If Indian creek should SO on
one of Its genuine old-time rampages the
dredge would be carried down to the river,
where It would probably go to the bottom
or become marooned on a sand bar.
The consensus of opinion among the coun
cilmen and oilier municipal officials Is that
the "Eleanor Gilbert." aa the dredge is best
known, should be placed on dry land until
such time as it might be needed to again
clean out the creek between Sixth avenue
and the Missouri river. Last fall one firm
offered to raise the dredge from the creek
onto dry land for $500. but the city council
decided it couldn't spare the money. Now
the lowest bid for ths same Job Is $600 and
the councilmen are at a loss to figure Where
the money can be obtained, as no appro
priation for it was made at the commence
ment of this fiscal year.
The dredge cost HoCO, but the members
of the late council assert It had paid for
itself before It was put out of commission.
It bas been practically Impossible to use the
big machine on the present work on Indian
creek, owing to the number of bridges to
be encountered between Sixteenth avenue
and Eighth street. The dredge. It la said,
la not of sufficient capacity for use on the
Pottawattamie-Harrison county drainage
ditches or on the Pigeon creek ditch, other
wise the councilmen would favor trying to
sell It to one of the, contractors on the big
ditches. Some are ready to prophesy that
the dredge will ultimately follow the ex
ample of former Councilman L. A. Casper's
big street sweeper and become relegated to
the municipal Junk pile of graders, street
sweepers, pile drivers and other expensive

IOWA BOY WINS HIS MEDAL
Conspicuous allantry of Joseph Fits
at Battle of Monnt
The Navy department has bestowed a
medal of honor and a gratuity of 1U0 upon
Joseph Fits, an Iowa boy connected with
the United States navy, for special gal
lantry in the action of March 9, 100, at
Mout-.l Dajo.' Jolo, P. I. General orders
No. 1, under date of May 1. Navy depart
ment, thus details the act of Ordinary Sea
mun Joseph Fits:
The department takes great pleasure In
awarding a medal ot honor and a gratuity
of c) to Joseph Fits, ordinary seaman, L.
8. N., for the bravery and extraordinary
heroism displayed by ill in on March , Iwk),
during the action on Mount Dajo, JoiO, P.
I., aa recommended by his commanding of
ficers and approved by the commander-in-chief
of the Asiatic fleet. The following
extract from the report of Captain Louia
H. Bash, V. S. A., serves to show the con
spicuous bravery of Fits, who .Is a lad serv
ing In his apprenticeship and of whom the
department Is Justly proud:
"I have the honor to invite your atten
tion to the conduct of Ordinary Seaman J.
Fit, attached to the gunboat Pampanga,
who was serving on tlio expedition of tne
I'nlted Htates troops during the action on
Mount Uajo, Jolo, P. 1., on March , 190.
I'pon the occasion In question the troops of
Captain Lawson's column, with which Sea
man Fits was serving, were advanrlng to
assault the last remaining cotta, altuated
on the north side of the hill. Tbe advance
guard of the troops had reached a point
very near the parapet of this cotta, ' but
were unable to command the interior. Sea
man Fits conceived the Idea of climbing
a large tree about forty feet from the
cotta, and firing Into It with his pistol. He
remained in t lie tree about ten minutes
and while there was the sole target for
the Mortwt inside ttie cotta. Although sub
ject to this severe fire from all sorts ot
firearms and other missile weapons, the
man coolly remained ln the tree, holding
on the best he might, firing his pistol rap
idly and undoubtedly doing great execu
tion. He finally came down and partici
pated ln the assault that carried the trench.
I was an eye witness to the above events
and submit this account for any action
the department may desire to take."
Mayor General Leonard Wood, V. B. A.,
forwarded the altove report to the commander-in-chief.
Astatic Meet, with the fol
lowing endorsement: "This man's conduct
was conspicuously gallant and of a char
acter tu clearly entitle him to a medal of
honor, which Is recommended. The cir
cumstances given within are correct."
Midshipman J. H. Hayward, I'. 8. N.,
who assumed command of the naval de
tachment when Knslgn Cooke was wounded
reports ss follows: "Fits conceived the Idea
of climbing a tree about forty feet from
the cotta. He volunteered for thla service,
and. although under fire from th Moroa In
the fort, he acted with great coolness.
Hanging on with one hand he used the
other lo fire Into the trenches. When the
revolver was empty he dropped It to th
ground and caught another loaded one that
waa thrown to him. His fire undoubtedly
did great rxecutlon and was probably the
cause of the position being captured with
out loss of life to our forces."
