Under the Instructions of the court one

bonding companies, only that their order
Is reversed. The sum of $1,966.06 Is sought

BONDHOLDERS NOT ALARMED

I'ntU Present Difflealtles with
City Are Settled.
"The Council Bluffs Water Works com
pany Is not now and has not recently made
any effort to effect a new bond Issue,
neither has it defaulted on the Interest on
Its bonds. All Interest due on the com
pany's bonds have been paid. The report
that some of the holders of the company's
bonds have become alarmed Is without the
slightest foundation and made up entirely
of whole oloth. The value of the present
water works plant Is, according to the ex
pert's estimate, ample security for the
company's bonds. The statement that
some of the bond holders had come here
to personally Investigate the situation Is
also without foundation."
This statement was made yesterday by
Manager E. W. Hart of the Council Bluff
Water Works company, when his attention
was called to an article published In the
columns of an Omaha paper.
Mr. Hart stated further, that nothing
could be done or would be done towards
raising funds for the extension and Im
provement of the system until the city
council reached some determination In the
matters now under consideration relative
to the water works situation.
A. N. Wlldman of Danbury, Conn., who
Is a holder of the water works company's
bonds, was In the city Inst week to attend
the wedding of his son. Captain Wlldman
of Fort Omaha, and Miss Stewart. His
visit here was not for the purpose of mak
ing any Investigation Into the situation, but
as stated, was merely to attend the wed
ding of his son. While In the city he
paid a visit to Mnnager Hart at the
offices of the company, but the visit was
purely a social one.

COURT IS TO SETTLE CONTROVERSY
Leernl Determination of Right of
Clerk of Conrt to Clerk Allowance.
The controversy between the Board of
County Supervisors and H. V. Battey, clerk
of the district court, over the latter's
allowance for extra clerk hire during 1905
and 1906 la to be arbitrated by the district
court. At the Instigation of Mr. Battey.
suit was commenced yesterday In the name
of Pottawattamie county, J. W. Mitchell,
treasurer, to recover ISOO which Mr. Battey
had drawn during the two years for extra
In his answer died yesterday with the
petition Mr. Battey asks Judgement for
$190 against Pottawattamie county, as be
ing the amount of the allowance for extra
clerk hire for the months of September,
October, November and December, 1906,
Which he had failed to draw.
In his petition Is recited the resolution of
the board of supervisors of January 7,
1905, ' fixing tho compensation of ' the clerk
of . the district court. In ' addition to the
$2,200 salary provided by statute, the reso
lution provides that the clerk shall retain
$300 from the probate fees and be allowed
"$40 per month clerk hire." It Is shown
that Mr. Battey drew up to and Including
the month of August, 1906, In all $800 for
"clerk hire." but It Is contended In the
petition, so as to bring the controversy to
an Issue, that there was toothing to show,
that Mr. Battey had employed extra cleri
cal help or paid for same out of this allow
ance, and the recovery Into the county
treasury of the $800 Is asked.
The answer filed by Mr. Battey sets forth
that the action la brought at the request
of defendant to obtain a Judicial determina
tion of defendant's legal rights, because of
some dispute that had arisen In respect
Last August, during the campaign for
county offices, there waa not the best of
feeling between certain members of the
Board of Supervisors and Mr. Battey, and
some of the supervisors questioned the
right of Mr. Battey to draw the $40 a
month allowance for clerk hire on the
alleged grounds that he did not employ
extra help all the year around.

four months of 1906, amounting to $160
turned down by the Board of Supervisors,
If he presented It. Mr. Battey decided to
appeal to the court and have the matter
settled there. In his answer Mr. Battey
asserts that the allowance of $40 a month
waa no more that sufficient to pay the
extra help employed by him, and he calls
attention to the fact that a like allowance
has been made for several years to his
predecessors In office.

DES MOINES. Feb. 13. (Speclal.)-McAl-llster's
bill making horse racing, base ball
and other sports a desecration of Memorial
day and punishable by a fine and Imprison
ment was debated for an hour this morn
ing In the house, amended several times
and then the house adjourned tilt this
afternoon at 1:30 to continue the discus
slon. The question before the house when
it adjourned at noon was on an amend
ment offered by Miller of Bremer that
the enacting clause be stricken out. This
was defeated this afternoon and the bill
Several covert efforts were made to
kill the bill before Miller of Bremer came
Into the open with his amendment to strike
out the enacting clause. An effort was
made to send It to the Judiciary commit
tee on the ground that It was Imperfectly
drawn. Leo of Emmet called attention to
the fact that there was no limit to the
term of Imprisonment that a Judge might
fix and offered an amendment limiting
It to thirty days In Jail which carted. The
law as finally passed prohibits sports or
anything that Interferes with the orderly
observance' of the day and the penalty
is a fine of $5 to $100 or Imprisonment in
the county Jail not exceeding thirty days.
In the house today the bill providing
for the assessment of rural and farm tele
phone lines was reported for passage.

Want Constitutional Convention.
The senate passed, 40 to 6, the Smith
resolution calling upon congress to arrange

of the United States with special reference
to popular election of senators. The six
who went on record as opposed to the
change In method of electing senators were
Dunham, Glllllland, Stookey, Jones, Jami
son of Clark and Bleakley. v
There was no argument on the resolu
tion, the standpatters having exhausted
themselves on the subject a year ago; but
Dunham filed a protest with his vote in
which he declared himself opposed to the
proposition of changing the method of
electing, that It Is bad 'policy to risk a con
vention In a time of unrest, and because
Iowa has always had honorable men In the
Senate bills: By Belley, appropriation
for agricultural extension; by Do Wolf, on
adulteration of drugs; by Stookey, defining

Way Can Surely Help You,
No ' one appreciates the lonesome
miserable existence of the deaf more
than Mr. George P. Way, the well
Jtnown inventor of the Way Ear Drum,
who Is now In this city.
Mr. Way, whose home office Is in ths
Majestic building, Detroit, Mich., waa
deaf for over 26 years, and during all
this time felt his lonesome position ex
tremely. He was cut off almost entirely
from enjoying the society of his fellow
men. He could nrt attend public meet

enjoy a social conversation with his
friends. He waa handicapped In busi
ness, and saw far less able men forging
ahead of him, because of his unfortunate
Infirmity. He could not even talk to his
own family freely and easily as he would
No one but those who are afflicted with
deafness themselves can appreciate what
Mr. Way suffered.
Mr. Way will be In
Omaha. At the Her
Grand Hotel, all this
week, until Feb. 16th in
