WATER RATES ARE UP AGAIN
Special Committee Orders to Prepare
Schedule on Oom promise Basis.
CHAIRMAN WALLACE IALKS ON THE MOVE
Insists Re Will Accept Nothing Bat
Bsslseer Klerstcd's Valuation as
a Baals for Cosipttlag
By a decisive vote of I to t the city
council last night took steps to bring the
long-pending negotiations with the water
worka company a apeedy and amicable
settlement The special committee, of
which Councilman Wallace Is chairman,
was Instructed to draw up a schedule of
rates and submit same to the council at
the earliest date possible. The Instructions
also provided that the committee for thla
purpose use a valuation midway between
the appraisement of W. Klersted, the ex
pert employed by the city, and that of J.
W. Alvord, the consulting engineer em
ployed by the water works company. Mr.
Klersted placed the value of the plant at I
$500.48, while Mr. Alvord'a valuation waa
$708,344, so a valuation of approximately
$800,000 will be what the special com
mittee Is to use aa a basla for making
the rate schedule. '
This action on the part of the council
waa brought out by the presentation of the
We have read the petitions recently pre
sented to the city council by a large ma
Jorlly of the business Interests of this
city, and, desiring to express our approval
of the plainly stated wishes of these pe
titioners, we respectfully ask that the
council proceed at once to enter Into an
agreement with the existing company.
We euitgest that any franchise that may
be offered to the company should be for
a term of years long enough to warrant
the investment by the company of suf
ficient money to make necessary reinforce,
ments snd 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 settled without any more
direct expense to the city or Indirect ex
pense to the people In the matter ot in
surance rates, we suggest that for a basis
for rate making only, a valuation midway
between the city's appraiser and the water
company's appraiser be used. r
That your consideration for the taxpay
ers and the business Interests of the city
will Influence you to grant this petition
and Immediately take steps to bring nego
tiations to a successful conclusion along
the lines Indicated above Is the earnest
wish of your petitioners.

Starts Wordy Contest.
After the petition had been read Coun
cilman Smith moved that the prayer of the
petitioners be granted and that the special
committee be Instructed to draw up a
schedule of rates In accordance with the
suggestions contained in this petition and
the one presented At the previous meeting.
Councilman Wallace at once offered an
amendment to the effect that the petition
be referred to hla committee. Thla brought
Councilman Maloney to hla feet with a
protest against the suggestion of the coun
cilman from the Third ward. He called
attention to the fact that the former peti
tion had been referred to the special com
mittee and that nothing had been heard
from It since. Mr. Maloney aald he waa
tired of the delay In the water worka mat
ter and he thought It was time that some
thing be done to bring the matter to a
settlement one way or the other.
After more or less discussion, during
which Manager Hart of the water works
company explained his position and took
the occasion to . contradict some of the
statements of Councilman Wallace, -the
letter's amendment waa defeated 'by a vote
of t to S, Councilman Fleming, Hendiix,
Knudsen, Maloney and Smith voting for
It. The vote stood the same on the orig
inal motion, Councilman Olson, Wallace and
Younkerman voting against it
When Councilman Olson, who was pry
siding In the absence of Mayor Macrae,
announced that the amendment had been
lost and that Councilman Smith's original
motion had carried. Councilman Wallace
aald with much emphasis:
"Aa chairman of the special committee
I will not take $000,000 aa the basil for ne
gotiations with the water worka company
either for purchase of the plant or rata
making, I think it Is unfair."

BRIGHT PROSPECTS FOR Y. M. C. A.
Five Thoasand Dollars Raised on the
The preliminary canvass for funds for
the proposed Young Men's Christian asso
ciation building made yesterday morning
by the special committee, assisted by Stale
Secretary Magee, proved most encouraging.
The committee succeeded In' a short time in
raising $5,155 and expects to Increase this
to $10,000 before making a report at the
moss meeting to be held this evening In the
rooms of the Commercial club. Yesterday's
list was headed by J. F. Wilcox with a
donation of $1,000.
If possible State Secretary Magee will
remain over for the meeting this evening
and Secretary Wade of the Omaha associa
tion Is expected to be In attendance.
State Secretary Magee expressed himself
as confident that the necessary money will
be raised. He said: "I believe the present
move for a Young Men'a Christian asso
aiatlon In Council Bluffs will be successful.
With the strong men back of It I cannot
aee how it caa be otherwise. It la a thing
that Is certainly badly needed and I believe
the business men of the city realise this.
Council Bluffs la the only city of It size
In the state when Is without an association
and In fact there are a number of smaller
towna which maintain thriving associa
tions." ROBERT BURNS 10c CIOAR. OLD
