SAY CITY HAS NOT THE MONEY TO BUY
Matter Is Referred to the Special
Water Works Committee PstIbr
Ordered on a Xamber of
The following petition signed by upwards
of seventy of the leading buslneKS men and
taxpayers of the city waa presented to the
city council last night:.
We understand that the present taxnble
valuation of the city of Council Bluffs Is
W.Sli.OMj; that Its legal limit of debt out
side of debts Incurred for purchase or
construction of water works to be 5 percent
of this amount, nearly Hi.), while the
face of the boitds now outstanding less the
cash on hand to apply on their payment
Is. In round numbers, L74.0iiO, or about
1,8,4(0 In excess of the legal limit.
VV'e further understand that under au
thority of recent legislation that for the
purpose of acquiring a water plant the
council may legally Increase the city's
debt to an amount equalling 6 per cent of
the city's1 actual valuation. In fact to
178. . If the amount of the present debt
Is deducted from the figure there would be
available for water works purchase but
508,41:7, which amount added to the (Huh
already in the water sinking fund would
make the total amount available fur the
acquirement of a water plant $Slj,.Vl!, or
about $HO,0"0 less than the amount figured
leceFsury to acquire and reinforce the
resent plant and without pro-lnlon for the
extension of water mains to districts now
(axed for water works purposes, but not
providtd with water service.
In view of these facts It is our opinion
that the present time Is Inopportune for
the acquirement of a water plant and we
respectfully request that your honorable
body proceed at once to enter Into a con
tract with the existing company. We sug
gest that any franchise that may be of
fered to the company should bo for a term
of years long enough tn warrant the In
vestment by the company of sufficient
money to make necessary reinforcements
and extensions, but that the city should
reserve the right to purchase at any time.
In view of the further fact that the power
to make or change rates at any time rests
with the council and to the end that the
necessary improvements may be made at
once and to the end that this matter be
fettled without any more direct expense to
the city or Indirect expense to the people.
In tho matter of Insurance rates, we sug
gest that for a hasls for rate mnklng only
a valuation midway between the city's ap
praiser and the water company's appraiser
That your consideration for the taxpayers
nntl the business Interests of the city will
Influence you to grant this petition and
Immediately take steps to bring negotia
tions to a successful conclusion Is the
earnest wish of your petitioners.

Matter Goes to Committee.
The petition ivas Introduced by Council
man Smith, accompanied by a motion to
the effect that the prayr of the petitioners
be granted anil tha the special water
works committee b directed to draw up
an agreement with the water company,
together w;lth a table of rates, and submit
the same to the council at Its first meeting
In March, with Expert Klersted's report
on rates to be used as a basis for figuring
the new schedule.
Councilman Wallace at once raised an
ibjectlon to the passage of such a motion,
ind Insisted that the petition should by
right be referred to the special committee
without any Instructions attached to It.
In this he waa supported by Councilman
Tounkermnn and Mayor Macrae. The
mayor stated lie waa auspicious of the
origin of the petition, and ascribed It to
persons directly connected with the water
works company. . At the Bame time, he
snld, he had - no fault to find with the
petition Itself, but he seized the oppor
tunity to read from the municipal owner
ship platform,, which he declared had been
adopted by both republican and democratic
city conventions. He said the petition
should go to the committee which had been
entrusted with the settlement of the water
Councilman Walluce'a substitute motion
to send the petition to hla committee car
ried. Councilman Smith being the only dis
Final and favorable action waa taken on
the resolution providing for the paving of
a number of streets and avenues, the list
of which had been published. Councilman
Wallace raised hla usual objection to or
dering Broadway paved beyond Twenty,
eighth street at thla time, but aa It yds
decided not to advertise for more paving
on this thoroughfare thla year than funda
would permit, the resolution waa allowed to
stand aa originally drawn.
Aa a result of tike crossing accident at
5tyw, aa Q Tj
whether on draujrWr
the Great Western tracks on Main street
resulting In the death of R. L. Felton of
Neola, an ordinance waa passed under sus
pension of rules requiring the Great Wes
tern and Burlington rallronda to maintain
gates at their crossings on Main and Sixth
streets and the Illinois Central at Its
crossing on Avenue A and Eighteenth street.
The ordinance provld'8 for a minimum pen
alty of $100 for failure to comply with Its
provisions. The ordinance aa introduced
only provided for the gates at Main and
Sixth streets and the Illinois Central cross
ing was added at the suggestion of Coun
cilman Hendrlx. The minimum penalty aa
provided In the original ordinance waa $J8
and on motion of Councilman Wallace It
waa increased to $100. Both Coundlmen
Wallace and Maloney thought the ordinance
was not broad enough In its Ocope and they
suggested tlx re were other dangerous
crossings which ought to be protected.
After some discussion It was decided to
pass the ordinance and take up the matter
of other dangerous crossings at a later
laveatlaratlon of Crosalnar.
A communication from the state railroad
commission announced It would meet In
Council Bluffs on March 19 to Inquire into
the matter of the Woodbury avenue crossing-
over tho Great Western tracks as
ordered by a recently passed ordinances
Counciimen Wallace, Younkerman and
Smith, City Solicitor Kimball and City
Engineer Etnyre were named as a special
committee to meet the commission.
The proposition of G. H. Scott, former
Judge of the superior court, to revise and
recompile the city ordinances for $StO was
finally accepted, the council agreeing !to
Include this amount in the appropriations
when made for the new fiscal year beglrv
nlng April 1.
Conrad Gelse petitioned that the cereal
mills erected by him on the Old brewery
property be exempted from taxation ror a
period of five years from January 1, 1908,

CAtSE OK DEATH IS tJICERTAI
Doctors Disagree .as to Whether It
Waa Arsenic or Ptomaine Polaoa.
CRE8TON. Ia., Feb. 25. (Speclal.)-The
coroner'B Jury, empaneled to determine the
cause of the death of Eldon Seward, the
9-year-old boy who died Friday evening,
hnwini svmntoms of having been pois
oned, returned a verdict this morning of
death, due to causes unknown- to tnem.
The Innueat commenced yesterday morning
and lasted until 10 o'clock this morning.
A number of witnesses were aummoned
onii n nnnt-mortem examination was held.
There was quite a little confusion of testi
mony by th witnesses. Three of the doc
tors of the city examined the body and
the doctor who waa called to attend the
boy said, when questioned as to what cause
he would assign the death of the boy, that
In his opinion the boy died of arsenic
poisoning. The other two doctora testified
that they found no trace of arsenic poln
and his death in their opinion was due to
ptomaine poisoning-. The mother of the boy
declared that there were no canned goods
In the house and that ptomaine poisoning
could not have originated from that source.
The stomach of the boy will be Bent to
Des Moines for a further examination and
the truth of the matter will be determined.
Where the boy got the poison, If such
thenrv Is correct, is the mystifying feature
of the case, as the mother declares that
there was no poison in the house with the
exception of some laudnum, which was
purchased for toothache about a week ago
and the symptoms that the boy exhibited
did not tn any way resemble that form of

Publication In one of the Des Moines
newspapers of an article purporting to be
tha report of tha appropriations committee
of the house on the bill appropriating
11.000 additional to pay for the dedication
of the Iowa monuments on southern bat
tlefields again came to the front In the
house today when a message from the
governor was read submitting the reports
of tha monument commissions. The gov
ernor's message, after reciting tha solemn
features of those who witnessed the dedi
cation of the monuments, stated that any
person who would describe such a Journey
aa a Junket waa either grossly Ignorant
of the English language or else wilfully
misrepresented. Tha message explained In
some detail that the extra appropriation
was made necessary to pay for the meet
ings of the commissions In arranging for
the Journey, the appropriation of the last
session being for tho Journey, with no al
lowance for the meetings In preparation.
He stated further that his own expenses
were paid from his own contingent fund
and did not come from the extra appro
priation. Following tha reading of the messare
Representative Miller of Bremer, who last
Saturday took tha blame of having given
the objectionable article to one of the
newspapers, rose and withdrew the apology
he made at that time and maintained that
