Question Arises Over Construction of
Plejenn Creek Rrldae.
The attention of the supervisors of Potta
wattamie county has been called to the fact
that the commissioners of Douglas county,
Nebraska, have granted permission for the
construction of a sixty-foot bridge across
Pigeon creek, on the east side of the Mis
souri river. It Is understood that the Doug
las county commissioners have acted on
the theory thst both ends of the bridge
will be in Nebraska territory and conse
quently they 'iave a legal right to build it.
The members of the Pottnwattamle
county board of supervisors, however, yes
terday expressed doubt that this Is really
the case and with the assistance of County
Attorney Hess intend to investigate the
matter. The supervisors are tinriuilllar
with the state boundary lines, owing to the
frequent meanderlngs of the Big Muddy,
but they intend, within the next few days,
to Inform themselves on the stib.iect.
While the supervisors Intend to Investl
gste as to the right of the Douglas county
commissioners to construct the bridge, tbey
admit that the structure will be of con
siderable convenience to the people of this
county living in that vicinity.

Good Work Relarlaa- PsTtuesl.
The Cltlsens' Gaa and Electric company,
in relaying the granite paving on Broad
way, recently torn up in order that the
old matna might be replaced with larger
pipes, has demonstrated that the blocks
can be reset practically as they were before.
When the conduits of the Independent
Telephone company were being laid, the
contractor experienced much difficulty In
getting the granite blocks to fit back aa
they were before they were taken up and
the result was that a large number of the
block never went back. The attention of
Mayor Macra was called to the matter
at the time and he ordered the work of
relaying the paving stopped until the con
tractor could find a man competent to
relay the paving in the same condition aa
it was before the excavation waa made.
The contractor Insisted to Mayor Macrae
that.lt waa absolutely Impossible to place
back all of the blocks taken up, aa they
would not fit back In the same positions
Mayor Macrae, however, stood pat, and
much of the pavement had to be taken
up again and relaid. The same haa been
true In instances where the motor com
pany baa taken up the granite pavement
to repair or replace Its tracks, but the gaa
company haa demonstrated that with care
all of the granite blocks can be replaced
as before they were taken up. On Broad
way, where the company is now laying its
big mains, not a spare granite block Is to
be seen on any part of the work where
the pavement has been replaced.

Maloney'a Time to Smoke.
Councilman Maloney will smoke a box of
cigars at the expense of Councilman Wal
lace. At the meeting of the committee of
the whole Thurtday night Councilman Wal
lace Insisted that Councilman Maloney
voted In favor of municipal ownership at
the Inception of the negotiations between
the city and the water works company.
This Councilman Maloney denied, but Coun
cilman Wallace insisted that the records of
the proceedings of the city council showed
that he did and that in the face of this
Councilman Maloney's denial would not
hold water. .
After sleeping over the matter. Council
man Maloney waa more confident than ever
yesterday morning that he had not cast his
vote in favor of municipal 'ownership and,
meeting Councilman Wallace In the city
hall, the wager was made, the records In
vestigated with the result that they dis
closed the fact that Councilman Olson and
Maloney had voted against the proposition.

ring, a gold watch and chain and othe

oame to Council Bluffs from Omaha, where
he has been for a short time employed by
the Klrkendull Shoe company. Investi

employment at the shoe company he was
without means. To Judge Scott, In an

In St. Louis, but had a family In Chicago.
He, has so far declined to give any In

From a Staff Correspondent.)
IE8 MOINES, June l.-(Specisl.)-The
next legislature of Iowa will he awked to en.
act a statute to define the point nt Which a
mutual fire Insurance company becomes in
solvent. The legislative Insurance Investi
gation commission will look Into the ques
tion also, but whether or not It recom
mends such a law. the asdltor of stste, B.
F. Csrroll, will ask it, provided he Is re
nominated and elected, as he probably will
be, having no opposition at this time.
"At present we have no way of knowing
Just when a mutual fire Insurance com
pany arrives at Insolvency," said Ole O.
Roe, head of the Insurance department
In the stste auditor's office today. "Mu
tual life companies are required to deposit
a reserve with the state and we therefore
are able to keep close tab on them. The
mutual Are companies, however, are prac
tically without our Jurisdiction. About
the only way we can tell when a mutual
lire company is Insolvent Is when it hss
a lot of accumulated losses It cannot pay
and somebody sends word to this office
asking about them.
"The next leglalsture should remedy this
evil, because In many cases injustice is
done policyholders who pay their assess
ments regularly and never know tbey are
not protected until their property burns
and they, find they really have no in
surance. A law requiring mutual fire com
panies 'to deposit a reserve with the state
might be the solution of the difficulty."
