NEW PROPOSAL FOR STREET LIGHTING
Company Offers BllaM Cnneeaaloa la
F.leclrle' Mghta by Way '
Royalty as All la Private
Baalaeaa.' ' '
The usual quantity of anflent straw was
threshed over by the city council last nlsht
when the propwsf-d contract recommend) d
by the special waterworks committee with
V. F. Klci-stedl. the hydraulic engineer
from Ksnsaa lily," to :. compute the value
of the preaent waterworks plant; and fur
nish an estimate' of the cost of construction
of a new system, waa submitted for rati
fication. The diHcnaslort. ft on former simi
lar occasions, was heated and his Satanic
majrsty was referred tn at frequent Inter
vals by several of the councllmen. Council
man HendrlK was the first to oppose the.
proposed contract on the grounds '.that he
did not consider the time opportune to em
ploy a hydraulic enslnser. He did not think
the city had ll.Onn to spare for such a pur
pose, at the present -stago of the negotia
tions. Allusion to the: expense of hiring
an engineer brought, forth from' Council
man Younherman the following:'
"What I a thousand dollars? Why, It Is
a mere nothing." ,
The proposed contract-called for an esti
mate of a waterworks plant feufflclent for
the needs of a city, of 64.000 Inhabitants,
whereaa the population of Council Bluff la
less than 3M00, but as Mayor Macrae sug
gested 'Council Bluff will probably "have
90,000 people by th time th city la ready
to build Its own water plant," a sally which
provoked considerable mirth among the
crowd outside, the railings. . " . .
' Councilman Smith wanted to, know If the
special committee had made any effort to
enter Into a new contract with the water
works company and he was answered by
Chairman Wallace of the committee to th
effect that It had been found uncles to at
tempt sny further negotiations.
, Vfter a prolonged discussion the proposed
contract was. on.-mollon. of .Councilman
Fleming, referred to the commutes of the
whole, which Is to meet tonight, and take,
the matter up..-' -
.Report oa I. Iht Contract.
The report of th committee on flra and
lighting as to the , new contract with the
Cltlsen' Oaa and Electric company, was
likewise referred to the committee of the
whole.. Th report "was read and, referred
without--discussion- In .part the report Is
as follows:-- - ' "
We have investigated the matter ot the
cost .to the city of tbe street lights and
have compared the same with the price
charged In other cities and have had con
ference with the Cltlsen' Gas and Elec
trlo Light company, and we find wo are
able to obtain -on contract for. flvs year,
term a follow: For arc atreet light,
2.000 nominal candle-power, for which the
city pay under the present contraot- on
moonlight- schedule, ti.60 each per year,
ths same can be obtained for the same
price, leas a 2 per cent royalty to- bs paid
by the company urnishtng the same upon
all lta gross earnings on all other electrical
business In the city, the company guaran
teeing that by this application the said
lighta will. not .cost, ths city t$ exceed Stf
each year.. .
. Under, a contract on thl baala of moon
light schedule expending ths same amount,
tli . number Of lights can be Increased
from 179 to 203 with asurplu of about
SSuO -to l,00( for us In paying tor extra
light outside the moonlight schedule.. It
can also be agreed that for extra time over
the Philadelphia moonlight schedule, ths
compensation WUl be n proportion as
under the present contract and will amount
to about Sii cents per hour.
Vniir committee finds that for an all-
night schedule, the lights above recited can
be oDiainea ior oo eacn per ;it.
Your - committee, therefore, recommend
that the proposition for 2.009 nomlnsl can
dle power arc lights for street lighting be
accepted on the. moonlight schedule bsi
and a contract be drawn embodying the
term reported by this ommlttee.
Your committee further recommends that
ths gas rats to city consumers bs reduced
from 11.46 per thousand cuble feet to S1.2S
per 'thousand cubic feet . from and after
January 1, 1807. . .
Your- committee alao finds under such
new contrsct th company will agree to
make extensions of Us gas mains wherever
the fire and light committee declares It
will be fair to both consumer and company.
Your committee further recommend a
renewal of present rate to consumer
of electricity within the city, with a dis
count at the following rat: On all
monthly bill paid In caah.on w before the
tenth day of each month! on 1.000 o tttw
watta for each 16-randl power lamp. 10
per cent; J,0u0 to S,5o0 watt for ech 16-candle-power
lamp, 20 per cent; S.0W) to

During the Storm Sunday night Robert
Johnson, who . was at work at ths coal
chutes in the yards of the Northwestern
railroad, waa kni eked unconscious by light
ning. -The samp bolt also struck Robert
Bkatth and John Nugent, switchmen, who
had stepped under the coal chute for shel
ter from the storm.
Nugent felt the shock In hi right heel
snd wss thrown to his knees, while Skaith
was for a few seconds blinded and par
alyxed by ths shock. Nugent was able to
resume work sfter a short time, although
he felt a numbness in his right leg for sev
eral hours. Skaith' had to be taken to bis
home on Avenue U, but was able to reaums
Johnson lay unconscious for some time
and when he regained consciousness found
he was unsble to wslk. He lay all night
In -the coal hed In a helpless condition
until found esrly yesterday morning by
Frank Hunt, ths yardmaster. He was re
moved to his- home at 1026 Avenue D snd
a physician summoned. Johnson's right
leg from . the knee down appears to be
paralysed, but It Is believed the disability
will be temporary.
Coaatr Board Proceedings.,
The board of supervisors of Pottawatta
mie county .convened yesterday for th
purpose of hearing protests against ths as
sessment for benefits by reason of th con
struction of the Pigeon creek drainage
ditch. A number of protest have been
filed and the board will probably be In
session for several day.
J.' B.' Denton f the firm of O. B. V J.
B. Denton, who are operating a ferry be
tween Florence and the Iowa side of ths
Missouri river, appeared before the board
yesterday morning In relation to their ap
plication for a license to run the ferry.
The board Informed Mr. Denton that he
must get -a petition from property owners
on. this side of tbe river to show that they
wanted the ferry before It would Issue any
license. Mr. Denton ststed that ths con
sent of W. 8. Mayns and other owners of
land In the vicinity, to ths laying out of a
road to the ferry had been obtained and
this, he thought, ought to satisfy the board
that th people of the Iowa slds of ths
river wanted ths ferry. The board, how
ever, declined' to recede from its posi
tion. ' As the ferry Is In operation and has
been for several weeks, some of ths super
visors fail to see what difference the is
uancs of a license will make.
Within recent year there has been a
noticeable revolution in ths methods em
ployed in the management 6f clrouses. in
former years the promises, of a circus man
were considered worthless,' and the state
ment of circus advertisement were Invari
ably ' discredited. This Is changed now.
The modern, clrcu is, as a rule. In th
hands oC worthy and honorable men, they
are reliable and agreeable In business re
lations. Th greatest and most satisfactory
change is In the line of advertising. For
instance, ths great- Wallace shows are ad
vertised to appear in Council Bluffs on
Wednesday, June 20. -They advertise that
they win present certain new and marvelous
acts." They name the performers, picture
and describo ths act, and people can go
toVhe show expecting to see everything ss
advertised.-- It I not a quest lean, of whether
Or. not Wallace will show, all he, advertises,
as people have long ago learned that his
show Is an amusement bargain counter?
that the Wallace circus Invsriably exhibit
a great deal more than It advertise.

Janitor Ask for Rala.
Encouraged by the success which the
teacher met In their effort to secure an
Increase of salaries, the janltora of the
public school buildings nave prepared a
petition asking for a higher schedule of
wsges, which will be presented at the
meeting of ths Board of Education this
evening. . .
Ralph Simpson, janitor at ths Washing
ton avenus bollding. Is said to bs ths only
janitor who has not attached his signature
to the petition. The petition asks the adop
tion of .genera.1 acale fixing the salary
of all janitors at $30 a month, with SS ad
ditional' for each room In the building
uaed. This scale would make ths salary
of a twelve-room building $80 a month,
whereas it Is now $70. The Washington
.venue school has eighteen rooms and
under, the proposed schedule the psy of
the janitor would be $110. which would be
the same as 1t has been In the past.
Ths Increase ssked by ths janitor. It I
figured, would smount to nearly $1,000 a

rience In the vehicle business In Council

DE3 MOINKS, June IS (Special. In an
opinion given on the request of State Su
perintendent Rlggs. Attorney General Mul
len holds thst the legislature has a full
right to legislate a shorter term for sec
retaries of Boaids of Education. The new
law simplifying the school year causes
secretaries, usually elected on th third
Monday in September, to be elected here
after on July 1. A large number of sec
retaries are of the opinion that their
terms of ofllce cannot be shortened by the
leglslnture and letters with Inquiries have
been flooding the office of the state su-
perlntendept. An opinion from the attor- I
ncy general was therefore asked. He holds
that the secretaries elected by Boards of
Education have no specified term of office.
The old law required thst a secretary be
elected on the third Monday In September
to serve until the successor Wa elected.
The new law provides that they shall be
elected July 1 or, if that falls on Sunday,
to be elected the day following. - It Is
understood that a large number of secre
taries have been preparing to resist the
selection of successors on the grounds tha:
their terms did not expire till the third
Monday in Beptember, some of them hold
ing that their bonds being . for twelve
month give them the office for that length
of time. The attorney general holds that
contest of this kind are Ill-advised and
thajt the length of a bond does not fix
the length of the term of office.
