no action was taken. The plan under con

of bringing factories and other business
enterprises to the city, securing suitable
sites for such enterprises and the offering
of bonuses when necessary to obtain the

week and if sufficient encouragement is
met with a meeting will be called to place
the proposition on a firm footing.
While It has been suggested to place the
capital stock of the proposed development
company at 1100.000, but one-fourth will be
asked to be paid at present. With a fund
of CS.000 It la figured that the company

PORTTOH OF REPORT STPPRKsSED
Estimate of Cost of Hew Plant Hot
Gtvesi to Pwhlle.
There Is a portion of the report of W.
Kiersted. the expert hydraulic engineer em
ployed by the city to compute the value of
the present water works plant and furnish
an estimate of the cost of the construction
of a new one. which has not yet been made
publio and which waa not included in the
copies furnhxhed. .the members of the city
council by Councilman Wallace, chairman
of the special committee on water works.
This portion of the report referred to deals
with the cost of the construction of a new
plant suitable for the growing needs of
Mr. Kiersted estimated the cost of the
original water works plant at tSST.Kg. and
its present value at SSOO.Ms. In which he In
cluded a going value of 3!,74 The cost
of reproduction of the present plant Mr.
Kiersted estimated at to which he
added 107.1RS, the estimated com of the Im
provements and extensions In the service
declared by htm to be needed Immediately.
This makes Mr. Klersted's estimate of the
cost of reproduction of the present plant,
together with the Improvements needed at
onoe. $641,627. or In round figures. $050,000.
The cost, however, of constructing a waer
works plant suitable to the growing needs
of the city, and such aa Mr. Kiersted
would recommend In the event of the city
deciding to build a new plant, would, ac
cording to his estimate, coat practically
tmt.000. These figures will be of consider
able Interest to ths taxpayers of Council
Bluffs, who have up to this not been made
acquainted with this portion of Mr. Kler
sted's report, and ee peel ally in view of the
fact that Coundltnen Wallace and Olson
of the special committee and Ooundlman
Tounkerman have been quoted aa declaring
themselves In favor of constructing an en
tirely new plant. These three members of
the city council are quoted as saying that
"every t&etacle has been cleared away for
the purchase of the present plant or the
construction of a new one, and that a new
plant can be acquired without Increasing
the present taxation and. further, that It
would secure a reduction of one-half of the
In exact flgures, Mr.' Kiersted estimates
the cost of a sew water works plant such
as would be desirable for Council Bluffs at
tu.StS. With the poeetble and probable In
crease In cost of material by the time the
city was ready to commence the construc
tion of a water works plant, the coot might
considerably exceed 1500,000. ,
In arriving at the eost of a nsw plant.

"This estimate," Mr.' Kiersted says. "Is
based upon taking the water supply from
the Missouri river at s paint near Walnut
grove, about 1.000 feet below the Illluuis
Central bridge. It is proposed to construct
the power station, ana settling basins near
enough to the liver that the same building
will contain both the low and the high
lift pumplna machinery, all the- boilers
and equipment needed, and that 'the sedl
meat taken from the. river water, can be
returned ta the Mlseoari river directly
through drains provided Ter that 'purpose.
The pumping station is made large enough
to provide for additions la the future."
Rewarding the possibility of securing the
water supply from the ground Instead of
from the Missouri river, Mr. Kiersted aay:
"The only available eouros of water sup
ply other thaa that of the Missouri river
is the gravel beds Snderlyrag the Missouri
river valley. Water can be taken from
these gravel beds la sufficient quantity te
supply a city of ea,0S InhaeiWyits or evea
more, and will need do purification, unless
It may be found advisable to reduce the
amount of mineral .matter' heid. rjT solu
tion. Should a water supply be takes' from
the ground It will be necessary to provide
a considerable amount of storage at the
water supply works ta order that ths. hsh
pressure pumps will always hsve a large
reserve to drw upon In emergencies. A
storage haln for this purpose muct neces
sarily he covered In order to prevent vege
table growth, which always develops luxu
riantly in the stored wster exposed to the
"A ground water supply, like that con
tained In the gravel beds of the Missouri
river valley. Is alwsyg desirable from a
hygienic point of view, for the reason that
the water so stored Is protected from any
danger of sewage pollution. The develop
ment works, however, have In the pest
been somewhat expensive, but Improve
ments In pumping machinery for taking
water from wells now admit of the con
struction of wnter supply works of this
character for less expense than formerly.
"No estimate has been made of the cost
of a ground wnter supply, for the reason
It Is necessary to make some borlnps before
reliable estimates can be made. A ground
water supply can be developed with equal
facilities at either the Broadway station
of the Council Bluffs Water Works com
pany or at the site proposed for the water
supply works of the new water works
Manarer E. W. Hart is In receipt of a
letter from J. W. Alvord. the expert em
ployed by the Council Bluffs Water Works
company. In which he states that his re
port will not be ready to be mailed before
Monday evening. ' In the absence of Mr.
Alvord's report no conference between
Manager Hart and the special water works
committee will be held this afternoon aa
planned last week.
The members of the special committee
and Mr. Hart were much surprised to learn
by the columns of the Sunday morning
edition of an Omaha evening paper that
the committee had a "lovely time" Satur
day afternoon at a meeting with Manager
Hart and that the latter hsd invited
Councilman Tounkerman to leave the con

fFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Jan. (Special.)-With
less than $l.O.0u0 available for extra ap
propriations the thirty-second general as
sembly is confronted with demands amount
ing to considerably over tiOOu.OOO. Be
quests otr the various state institutions
alone amount to $1.6J.5S, the State Agri
cultural college and the State university
asking for $,00a The State university
lesds the list with requests for $443,000.
These appropriations are all known as
extra appropriations. Most of the state
Institutions have appropriations that are
annual and need not be acted upon by
each succeeding legislature. The extra ap
propriations asked for are for new build
ings and Improvements not provided for
by the regular annual appropriations. Both
the State university and Agricultural col
lege have mlllage taxes for the purpose
of erecting new. buildings, but both are
asking for big appropriations In addition
for new buildings, the State university ask
ing for $125,000 for a woman's building and
the 8tate Agricultural college for $100,000
for a heating plant and tunnels and $15,000
for an addition to the girls' dormitory,
besides smaller amounts for other build
ings, the total acked by the college being
$3S5.000. Both ask for increases in the an
nual support fund. In comparison with
these the State normal is asking for only
U3,oii, or which $5.ono is for walks and
grading, $T,,000 for the library and $6,000
for the librarian's salary. The total re
quests of the three educational Institutions
are as follows:
State university .'. J $ 443.000
Aa-ricultural college 395.000
State Normal l&.OuO
Total $ 851.0(10
Asked by state fair $ 100.000
Institutions under board of control. MS,EJ
The appropriations asked by the state
fair are to erect a steel amphitheater, buy
additional land and build a swine pavilion.
The appropriations asked by the board of
contrcl are for infirmaries at some of the
hospitals, new buildings of various kinds
and other permanent Improvements, all of
which were given In the report published
In addition to all these appropriations
there are bills already Introduced or about
to be Introduced for appropriations for an
executive mansion, publishing a roster of
old soldiers, for completing the historical
building, for completing the archives de
partment and providing salary for the cus
todian, for publishing documents and build
ing monuments to .departed state officials.
Probably the hardest task of the session
will fall to the appropriations committees,
as there is available less than $1,000,000 for
Lark of Passes Preveat Recesses.
The lack of passes will prevent any fur
ther recesses this-Beeslon of the legis
lature. The legislature will meet tomor
row afternoon tw'taTre- up business, and
pccordirsjr to the tstfiper of the members
there will be Inisfnei flying right from the
first. The traveling expenses of the mem
bers to visit the atste Institutions Is paid
from the treasury, but there will be no
more going home except at the expense
of the member, for there sre no more passes
In Iowa for state officials. Considerable
debate Is going on as to how the Agri
cultural college wlli get the legislators to
visit the college. Every year there has
been a special train run to Ames for thst
purpose and everyone went free. Accord
ing to the anti-pass law everybody can
ride on passes but state officials, so the
excursion this year will be a difficult thing
and the general impression is that there
win be none.
Another Beet Basra r Factory.
A second beet sugar fsctory Is to be lo
cated In Iowa, the site to be at Fort
Dodge. For eight years there has been a
law on the statute books to encourage
the erection of beet sugar factories In
Iowa. The first to take advantage of It
was one organised at Wsverly a few
months ago. Work on that is progressing
and It is expected to have It in operation
for next year's crop. Now a second is to
be put up at Fort Dodge, the machinery
being moved from another state as a result
of the discovery of the federal Department
of Agriculture that the soil of Iowa Is
favorable to sugar beets.

'"Lady Windermere'! Fan" at ths Burwood
Get Splendid Treatment
BRILLIANT PLAY IS WELL PRODUCED
Good TaeseTtlle BUI at the Orpbeam
Is Mack Ealoyed and "The Yaskee
Censel" Delights Crowds
Right at the very outset let us congmtu
lste Director Hartford on his success In
preparing "Lady Wlndermere-s Fan" for
the stage at the Burwood. Written, as It
was, by the acknowledged English master
of epigrammatic wit, and glittering wrrh
the choicest gems of his scintillating, cyni
cal, biting wit and pungent satire. It Is at
once the delight and the despair of the
stage director. Any man who succeeds In
so drilling his actors that half of the beauty
of the snappy cross-fire of sardonic humor
and cynical. ' witty wisdom of this play Is
preserved M the audience may congratu
late himself, and Mr. Hartford baa done
more than this. In the scene In Lord Dar
lington's chambers, where the men Indulge
for a few moments In an Interchange of
brilliance, the work Is nearly perfect. Not
only the spirit, but the atmosphere Is pre
served, and In this Messrs. Morrison, Hart
ford, Da vies, Todd and Schoefield shone.
It Is aulte the best bit of ensemble work
that has been done at the Burwood theater
this winter, and Is certain to unfold a few
minutes of unalloyed pleasure to all who
love clever work cleverly done.
"Lady Windermere's Fan" Is a cut above
the average stock company, and It was
most ambitious undertaking on the part
of Mr. Hartford to set about its presenta
tion at the Burwood, but he has succeeded
most admirably. Miss Pitt makes Mra
Erlynne quite Impress.ve. Phe avoids a
slight tendency to become tragic In her
heavier scenes, and carries the lighter with
a clear conception of the difficult position
in which she Is placed by the circumstances
that surround her. Her scene with Lady
Windermere In the third act Is vrry well
brought off. Miss Hill Is not exactly st
ease as Lady Windermere, seeming to feel
a bit too keenly the vaccllating weakness i
of the character and yet unable to fully !
realise It In expression. The air of coldness
with which she Invests the part does not
seem to lit exactly with he notion that
she is the warm and Impulsive woman who
would do the things that Lady Windermere
did. Miss Hudson as the garrulous Duch
ess of Berwick and Miss Maycliffe as Lady
Plymdale are well cast and Miss Martin as
the simpering and Insipid daughter of the
duchess Is a dellcht. She has but one
speech, but says that so aa to start a laugh
each time she pronounces It.
The positive characters In the play are
female; the men merely serve as make
weights, and the praise already bestowed
on them will be deemed sufficiently com
prehensive. Each does well, and together
they do splendidly. The play has been
beautifully staged, and should prove one
of the most successful bills of the season
at the Burwood. It runs through the
week, with the customary matinees.
Vaadevtlle at the Orpheasa.
The bright particular atar In a uni
formly good bill at the Orpheum this week
Is Julius Bleger, who appears here for the I
first time in vaudeville. His number Is a j
sentimental playlet called "The Fifth Com- i
mandment." with the reunion of a wander- i
lng musician and his long lost child as the
basis of the plot. Opportunity Is given for j
a song by Mr. Bteger, which Is certainly
one of the best things heard In vaudeville
here for a long time. Mr. Bteger la as
sisted by Mr. William H. Pascoe. Miss
Helm Mar Wilcox and Mr. John Romano,
a harpist of ability. The staging is rich
and the number is placed at the head of
vaudeville for this season.
Ollie Toung and brother, whose hoop
rolling stunts have been seen by Omahans
several times, were given a rousing wel

marvelous feats have been added to their
list since they were here last. Knight
brothers and Sawtelle have a dancing nov
elty of high merit. All three can sing and
ran do a novelty dance that is well worth
recalling. They had hard work inducing
the audience to let them quit Llna Pantxer,
on the bounding wire, and Tommy, her
clever assistant. In burlesque, do some
am axing stunts Btanolng on ths shoulders
of a garden spade and jumping the rope,
doing a skirt dance knd finally removing
all the clothing not needed in the wire act

seems to be able to do almost anything on
the wire. The musical portion of the bill
Is largely made up of the Four Avolos.

"The Yankee Consul" at the Kris,
There is a lively pallop through the comic
opera. "The Yankee Consul." being pre
sented at the Krug theater. The pier,
seen here before, Is of the lighter fcrm of
entertainment, with a little low srtory to
give It some consistency, a military sir to
give It a touch of dgnlty and a bevy of
attractive young women to give It vivacity.
Harry Shcrt. as Abijnh Booxe, American
consul In Puerta Plata, Ban Domingo. Is a
comedian -of ability. He requires no af
fectation to make people laugh, for he hue
the humor In him and Just lets It loose and
the audience does the rest. He employs
but little makeup to arouse the risibilities;
he is Just himself, and that is the summum
bonum of his art.
The supporting company this yesr is not
quite as strong musically as It might be.
but there Is much thst is acceptable and
the humor runs along merrily without stint.

In their musical number.- "We Ootne of
Castllllan Blood." Mr. Short's "Ain't It
Funny What a Difference Just a Few
Hours Make?" and "It Wasn't IJke This In
the Olden Days." were woll received. Miss
Margaret Flavin, one of the heaviest ac
tresses on the stage, transported her ob sltv
with considerable dexterity. As Donna
Teresa, a wealthy widow with a figure In
the bank, as well as a personal "figure,"
she makes merry with Cr-nsul Booxe and
adds to the levity.
The Krug theater was filled twice yester
day to capacity. The present ergagmcnt
of this pretty little opera will close with a
performance this evening.
