The members of the Board of County
Supervisors are accusing one another of
lack of stamina and backbone In the mat
ter of awarding the contract for furnish
ing the several departments of the county
with blank books, printed supplies, etc., for
the ensuing year without first advertising
for bids. Several months ago the super
visors decided to Investigate the cost of
such supplies in adjoining counties and a
committee was appointed sub rosa to carry
out the Investigation. Supervisor Spencer
was the chairman of this committee anil
he reported back to the other members that
the Investigation had developed the fact
that In Harrison county the same class
of supplies was being furnished the county
at greatly lower prices than paid by
Pottawattamie county. For Instance, the
committee reported that certain blank
books which cost Pottawattamie county
$27 and $28 each, were furnished Harrison
county for $10 less. In another Instance It
was stated that certain supplies for which
Pottawattamie county paid 1140, Harrison
county paid only ISO. With these facts
before them the members of the board at
a caucus Tuesday morning decided that
when the matter came up, " a motion to
advertise for bids would prevail. Such a
motion, however, did not prevail. Victor
E. Bender, general manager of the New
Nonpareil company, appeared before the
board with a hastily written bid, offering
to furnish the supplies on the basis of the
previous year's contract.
Chairman Sets opposed awarding the
contract without advertising for bids and
called upon Supervisor Spencer to state
what the committee had discovered In Its
Investigation. Report has It that Mr.
Spencer failed to respond, and Mr. Bender
then told the board of the number of em
ployea who drew pay from his company
and the amount of - taxes the company
paid, urging that the company was en
titled under these circumstances to the
jontraet, whether other Arms got a chance
at It or not Mr. Bender's eloquence car
ried the day and the contract was awarded
to him. Chairman Seta alone dissenting.
Needless to say the action of the board has
Invited more or less criticism among the
taxpayers of the county.
Action oa Salary Qneatlon.
Much of yesterday's session was again
spent by the board In discussing the sal
arles of the county officers and when ad
journment was taken last evening the mem
bers had failed to arrive at any conclusion
as to the compensation of the clerk of
the district court. Mr. Battey, clerk of
the court, appeared before the board and
explained the need for extra clerical help
In his office, but the board decided to
postpone action until Mr. Battey had filed
his report for the last half of the year.
The salary of the county attorney was
placed at 12,000, the same as before, and
his assistant was allowed $60 per month.
The salary of the sheriff Is placed by
statute at $3,800, out of which he haa to
pay the compensation of one deputy, leav

earned out of the fees of the office. The
salary of the other deputies was placed
at $1,000 each, as before, and Is to be paid
by the county. The sheriff also receives
$300 for maintaining the county jail and
mi cents a meal for each prisoner, as well
as 12H cents lodging for each night each

PART OF WATER REPORT GIVEN
Committee Withholds Remainder for
Although it was generally understood
that the report of W. Klersted, the expert
hydraulic engineer, on the present water
works plant, was to have been given to
the public yesterday, only an Installment
of It waa given to the press. The entire
report, It Is said, will not be made public
until the special committee, of which Coun
cilman Wallace la chairman. Is ready to
submit Its report embracing a proposed
plan of action. This, however, will not be
at the adjourned meeting of the city coun
cil this afternoon.
A member of the special committee said
yesterday, when the report was submitted,
something tangible would be recommended.
"There Is no question but what the city
can purchase the water works," the coun
cilman said, "as under the new law Coun
cil Bluffs can Increase Its present Indebted
ness nearly $560,000 for such purpose. In
making this statement the councilman
based the value of the water works plant
on the figures given by Mr. Klersted and
did not take Into account the fact that
before an arrangement of this character
would be reached a va'uatlon on the plant
would have to be placed , by three ap
praisers, dne selected by the city, another
by the water works company and a third
by the other two.
Ah Interesting and Important portion of
Mr. Klersted's report, which the committee
has seen fit to hold back. Is that regarding
the question of equitable water rates. The
reason for' withholding this part of the re
port. It Is stated. Is due to the fact that
the estimating of a schedule of rates was
not contemplated In the contract between
Mr. Klersted and the city and the com
mittee has no desire to Involve him In a
controversy over this phase of the ques
tion without first consulting him.
In his report so far as it has been made
publio Mr. Klersted falls to give any In
formation as to the basts on which he
formed his estimate of the value of the
present plant. In placing the estimated
cost of the original plant at $387,818 he says:
The data for estimating the cost of the
original water works Is Incomplete, but
believing an estimate of original cost
would be Interesting and would afford a
guide In matters relating to water rates
an effort has been made to approximate
the coet as nearly as possib'e by consider
ing the prices prevailing at the time of
construction when the market value of
much of the . material was higher than at
The original water works were evidently
very carefully planned and constructed.
Evidently the requirements of the future
were Intended to be liberally anticipated,
for up to. this date no extensions have
been made to the Broadway pumping sta
tion nor has there been any addition to
the high pressure pumping machinery
originally Installed, or to the force main
delivering water Into the city. The original
flpe lines contain between twenty and
wenty-one miles of com Iron pipe, 200
hydrants and numerous valves.
The estimated present value of the plant
la divided as follows:
River pumping station $ S3 327
Broadway pumping station 12 124
Settling basins (!9 9fr
Glen avenue reservoir 27 221
Distributing pipe system 2ie!iW5
Pumping engines, boilers and equlp-

T.?" ; .i.. $480,198
The depreciation of the physical property
to date Is about 10.S per cent of the esti
mated cost of reproduction, less real es
tate, and amounts to $54,248.
The estimated cost of reproducing the
physical property at the present time and
under existing conditions Is estimated at
$530,548, exclusive of real estate and Items
of office fixtures, tools, stock and Buppiies.
The cost of reproduction plus the present
worth of real estate, but exclusive of the
other Items above excluded, Is $534,445.
The property which appears In the esti
mate of original cost In the beginning of
this report and does not appear in the esti
mate of the cost of reproduction and the
estimate of the present worth of the present
physical property Is abandoned property.
The. original cost of the. property thus
abandoned and unestlmated Is In all prob
ability $35,000 or more, embracing such
Items as the original oak conduit. Intake
well. Gumbo Point pumping station, West
Inghouso engines, original boilers at Broad
The going value of $20,749, Is based upon
the estimated present worth of the ex
isting property of $4M),19. and an Increase
of services and earnings in proportion to
the greater mileage of cast Iron distrib
uting pipe of the reproduced plant.
Regarding needed Improvements Mr.. Kler

on Main street southward, or partially
on Main street and partially on Sixth
street to Sixteenth avenue, Intersecting and
reinforcing all the pipe lines along the
route. In addition to this there should be
a second reinforcing main on Pearl street
ten Inches In diameter from Broadway to
Story street, and from each of these rein
forcing mains there should le laid lateral
reinforcing pipes at least eight Indies In
diameter to stnnll pipes In the business part
of the city. Six-inch hydrants, each with
a steamer noxxle as well us the usual hose
nossles. should le substituted for the pres
ent four-Inch hydrants In the business part
of the city. A reinforcement of this char
acter la imperative and should be made
The city should soon provide for steamer
fire sendee In the business district con
taining hlKh and large buildings.
Regarding tho establishment of a "high
level" water district for furnishing water
to the hill sections of the city, Mr. Klersted
has this to say:
While the Glendale reservoir Itself will
furnish good Are service In the low level
districts through the distributing pipes
properly reinforced, it Is clear that that
reservoir Is Incapable of rurnlshing good
fire service or even proper domestic service
on the high ground. In order to furnish
satisfactory service throughout the hill dis
trict It Is necessary to establish an Inde
pendent high service station and to dis
connect the hill district from the low level
district, confining the Glendale reservoir to
the low level district and providing ad
ditional storage at a higher level for the
The district northeast of Glen avenue and
Bryant street should be operated as a
high service district In order to provide
the necessary pressure throughout the high
ground of this district. This can he ac
complished by Installing pumping ma
chinery t the Glendale reservoir and lift
ing from this reservoir such water as may
be needed for the high-service district to
the high point In Falrmount park Imme
diately adjoining the reservoir. On this
high point should be erected a small reser
voir for the storage or the hill-district
supply. A main pipe line not less than
twelve ln?hes In diameter, or Its equivalent,
should be laid along Park avenue, con
ectlng the hlgh-uiTVlce with the dis
tributing pipes on Pierce street, Rrondwny,
Vine street and Washington avenue, liy
this method the pressure In the pipes of
the high-service district, as above described,
can be safely and advantageously Increased
Other Improvements said to be much
needed, recommended by Mr. Klersted, are
a new moderately high-duty pumping en
gine of a capacity of 6,000,000 gnllonB per
twenty-four hours, Installed In the Broad
way pumping station; extensions and Im
provements for the present settling basins;
a brick building substituted for the present
frame building at the river station on

Governor Silent on Lynching.
Governor Cummins was not ready today
to make any statement regarding the
lynching of George Cullen at Charles City
last night at midnight. The governor has
received no official Information of the lynch
Ing and knows only what the press dis
patches relate. Although the law has
not been thoroughly looked up concerning
the matter, it Is believed the governor has
almost unlimited authority In such a mat
ter.. At least It can be said that he has
wide authority, and unless the courts and
administrators of Justice In that section
begin work at once to bring the members
of the mob to Justice there Is reason to be
lieve that Governor Cummins will exerclso
his powers In the matter. The governor
has authority to order the courts to In
vestigate by special grand Jury or other
wise and If they fall to Investigate can
himself appoint persons to make such an
Investigation. He has authority to re
move the sheriff and county attorney if
they fall to discharge their duty and to
appoint others In their place. It was too
early today for the governor to give any
Indication ns to what course he might
pursue aa he hus made only a hasty ex
amination of the matter himself.
Minority Report Btronir. '
In the minority Insurance commission re
port filed this afternoon after a meeting
of the Insurance commission. Representa
tives Kendall and Jones, the minority mem
bers, made an unqualified demand for the
abolishing of deferred dividends. The re
port recommends that expenses of insur
ance companies be rigidly held down,
that the salaries of Insurance company
officers be limited so as to conform to the
value of the services rendered and recom
mends that Insurance be restored to the
proper sphere as first Intended, aa an In
demnity for death instead of a form of
speculative Investment. The report of the
majority of the commission makes only
mild recommendations and urges that no
legislation be enacted on deferred dividends
nor on limiting expenses to the loading nor
on limiting salaries of officers, nor elim
inating the Investment Idea from life In
surance. The minority report scores the majority
of the commission as "going to unneces
sary extremes In emphasizing the diffi
culties In the way of, Insurance reform,"
and charges that the mtjorlty's belief In
publicity Is evasive and inadequate. The
minority charges that the evidence in the
hands of the commission shows that In
surance companies are frequently managed
In the Interest of promoters; that the
managing boards of directors are com
posed of the officers, who elect themselves
and fix their own salaries, frequently so
high as to make the expense out of pro
portion with the services rendered; that
the surplus from deferred dividends Is
controlled absolutely by the loosely In
utalled management and is used to get new
business, enlarge salaries and for need
less extravagances. It scores the majority
report for recognising the Irregularities
In the east, but refusing to recognize them
Appointments and Positions.
Committee appointments and positions as
employes Is the main talk about the cor
ridors of the Savery with the legislative
arrivals. By tomorrow noon It is ex
pected nearly every member of the legis
lature will be In the city. This will give
disappointed position seekers an oppor
tunity to go horns before Sunday. Ex-
Senator Turner of Adams county resched
the city last night. He has a candidate for
the position of engrossing clerk of the
senate, a position filled the last two ses
sions by Miss lxls Illgby of 8cott bounty.
The senator from Scott cointy this year
Is a democrat which somewhat handicaps
Miss Rlgby, and she siay njt be a candi
date. KHward Cass of Adams county and
Miss Kleannr Hutchison, a committee clerk
the la(S session and stenographer for the
Insurance commission, Is a candidate with
chances of success.
It Is understood there Is mild objection
to Senator KckUs ns chairman of the sen
nto aarrlculturnl comnilltce. . Tlure Is a
hint that Scnitor Newberry may lie made
the head of the committee. Newberry Is a
lawyer, but Is Interested this session In
getnng through a hill providing for pure
stocK food and n state Inspection of such
foods and would be particularly fit for the
position, which Is considered one of the
most Importunt committees In the senate
and has a great deal of work to do.
It Is believed by some who are close to
the Inside of matters that Senator Glllll
land will be chairman of the committee on
cities and towns. The committee ranks
sixth In the senate. Glllltland Is from
Mills county and nt the Inst two sessions
had no committee chairmanship. The only
objection to Ollllllsnd having the committee
is that he Is not from a large town, hut
there Is no other lawyer In the senate who
Im from a large town and the commltt'e
belongs to a lawyer or always has gone to
Chris Jepson of Woodbury county Is a
candidate for code supplement editor. II
wns a member of the house at the last
The position cf president pro tern of the
senate Is little agitated. Smith nf Mitchell
who held It before, nnd Dowell of Polk and
Mattes of Carroll are mentioned.
Settled ont of I'cmrt,
It was learned here today that the suit
of R. W. Ernest of Pes Moines against
C. M. ftephens and Martha Stephens of
Omaha for nllenatlon of the affections of
Jhe wife of Mr. Ernest hns been settled
out of court. Ernest sued for $3,000. The
amount secured Is not learned, but It Is
said Mr. and Mrs. Stephens pay the costs.
They live at 1332 Georgia avenue, Omaha.
fHntnte hnd Rxnlrcit.
The supreme court decided today that
the statute of limitation had expired In
the case of F. C. Ixiugee, appellant,
against F. K Reed, appealed from Potta
wattamie county. Reed was county clerk.
Lougee secured a judgment ngainst a man
named Maxwell and Reed entered It In
the docket, but failed to Index It. Max
well had some land and the entry of the
Judgment not being perfect he was able
to sell tho land. Ixiugee sued Reed for
damages. The court held that the statute
of limitation had expired, the question
being whether It began to run when the
entry was made or when the mistake was
Jnries nrc Annulled.
All four Judges of the district court to
day signed the order annulling the Polk
county Juries. The order sustaining the
motion to set aBlde the entire list says
the entire proceeding, from the placing
of the names on the poll books to the
drawing of the panels. Is "saturated with
the taint of Illegality." This leaves the
county without Juries for two years or
till after the next election, unless the legis
lature takes action.
