NIsbt to Seleot Officers for tho
Clan Plans for Work la
The report of Secretary Reed at tho an
nual meeting of the Commercial club last
night showed that considerable had been
accomplished by It during the last twelve
months. Tho report In part follows:
In enumerating the various enterprise
that have been located here, the Com
mercial club, of course, does not claim all
the credit; but In practically every case It
was an Influential factor In too negotia
tions that resulted in securing tho estab
lishments for tho city. I enumerate a few
of tho benefits that have been secured for
the city through tho co-operation of this
The Carey Smith shirt factory, formerly
at Atlantic, Ia.
The artificial tco plant, operated by tho
Bloomer Manufacturing company, and
later the enlargement of that Institution
into tho Bloomer Ice and Cold Storage
A cement block factory.
An artificial limb factory.
A corrugated Iron culvert factory.
An Iceless refrigerator company was or-
fanized here and the construction of re
rlKerators was begun, but owing to some
difficulty at the very start the manufacture
Through the Influence of the Commercial
olub we have secured better accommoda
tion at the postoffloe, and the receipt and
dispatch of malls has been considerably fa
cilitated. The club co-operated with, the founders
of the Eagle Life Insurance company, now
nn Institution of this city, and while the
Commercial club, as a body, took no action
with reference to the establishment of the
Western Mutual Lite Insurance company, It
Is understood that this concern la on a
sound bais and Is being promoted by mem
bers of this club.
Through the co-operation of the CVm
merclel club tho Uncle Sam Oil company
has located a branch In thi city, and great
oil tanks are now being Installed for the
storage of tho product of that concern.
An assistant state veterinary surgeon has
been secured for the city, and tho Inspec
tion of all stock passing through Council
Bluffs may now be done here while here
tofore !t has ben held until inspection
could be secured from Omaha.
This club has taken an Important part In
maintaining railroad assessments, and will
continue Its efforts In behalf of the people
to secure a Just and equitable assessment
of all railroad properties here.
It may be said that the activities of this
club have attracted the managers of all the
railroads centering here, and we are receiv
ing far more consideration from these cor
porations than ever before In the history of
During the past year, through tho solici
tation and co-operation of this club, many
conventions were held In this city, includ
ing the following:
Tho state convention of Sunday school
workers, the Fraternal Order of Eagles
for the state of Inwa, the Sons of Herman
of southwestern Iowa, the Railway Mall
Clerks' association, the county officers of
the state of Iowa, the Western Iowa Edi
torial association, the Danish Brotherhood
of America, tho army of the Tennessee,
the convention of tho southwestern Iowa
Acting Jointly with the Council Bluffs
Street Fair and Carnival company, the
Council Bluffs Commercial Club held a suc
cessful fair and carnival In this city last
fall, and as a result of that week of fes
tivities It has now in the treasury $4,000.
which is to be used in J:he promotion of
some public enterprise.
Some Kvtsli for Fat a re.
At this date the following conventions
have been secured for 19071
The Manufacturers' association of Iowa,
which will bo here on June 22; the Inter
national Methodist conference, in Septem
ber; the League of Iowa Municipalities,
the convention of the Women's Christian
It is likely, too, that If the Commerclul
club and the Street Fair and Carnival com
pany receive the proper encouragement
from the cltlsens of Council Bluffs, and
particularly from those whoso property ad
joins the site of the street fair, another
carnival will be given this fall, on lines
similar to those that have been held dur
ing the last nvs years.
Delegates or representatives from this
club attended during tho past year. In
their official capacity, the following meet
ings and conventions:
The Chautauqua at Olenwood, Iowa; the
Avoca fair, the Trans-MlsslsslppI Commer
cial congress at Kansas City, Mo.; the
National Rivers and Harbors congress at
Washington, D. C; the Deep Waterway
convention at St. Louis, Mo.
The club has a great deal of unfinished
business on its hands, much of which will
result in substantial benefits to the city.
Among other things. It Is confident that
It will secure the erection of a city passen-
ger station Dy me waDasn naiiway com
pany. Also that It will be In position to give
substantial assistance to the city council
In completing the paving on West Broadway.-
The club Is assisting in promoting a wide

our local representatives in that body and '
rendering what assistance It can In bring
ing about the passage of desirable bills.
The Young Men's Christian association
movement seems to have taken definite
form and It is believed that within a very
short lime a fund will have been raised
sufficient to enable the projectors to erect ;
a flrst-clasa structure.
Tho club has the assurance of officials
of the Omaha A, Council Bluffs Street '
Railway and Bridge company that Its lines
will be extended from this city lo the Iowa
School for the Denf; that the material for
construction has already been ordered, and
that surveyors will be In the city In a few
days to determine the route. "
The executive committee of this club and
the members generally has long enter
tained the hope of establishing In this city
a Mrst-class normal school or some Insti
tution for higher education. It la believed
that such an establishment would add very
materially to the prestige of the city and
would ;lve It an impetus of growth In the
Uood to Get TonretUer.
In his annual address President Mo
Donitld spoke of what had . been accom
plished during the last year, as set forth
In detail in the secretary's report and be
spoke for the club a most substantial
growth. In closing, he ssid:
If no one other thing has been accom
pliBhd within the four yeara of the ex
istence of this club, the fact of the ma
jority of the business men of this town
being linked together In an organisation
of this kind has of Itself paid a dividend.
The time has passed when a city of this
size can afford to be without a commercial
head, and as retiring officer I wlh to ad
monish every member to put his shoulder
to the wheel, lend his Influence for the
bettermrnt and enlargement of Its mem
bers, atand by Its executive officer and
thereby strengthen Its work.

AMATEIR OPERA GRKAT SICCE9
Parked Iloaae Witnesses Opening Per
formance of Kara.
The opening performance by local talent
of tho oriental opera "Egpta," the won
drous story of the Nile, under the auspices
of the Woman's Christian association for
the benefit of the new Jennie Edmundson
Memorial hospital, at the New theater last
night, was a great credit not only to those
taking part, but to those who had assisted
in its preparation. The performance,
which was far above $he ordinary amateur
entertainment, was greatly enjoyed by an
audience which completely filled the house,
and showed that Council Bluffs has a num
ber of good singers and actors.
Tho oriental character of the opera pro
vided scope for elaborate and sumptuous
effects, not only in costuming but in seen
nry, and several of the stage picture and
groupings were beautiful in the extreme.
The performance will bo repeated tonight
and Friday night and the cause for which
the opera ia given certainly deserves
