YEAR IS A PROSPEROUS ONE
Substantial Progress Made
BRIGHT PROSPECT FOR FUTURE
Holiday Trad Una Bern l'a to Ki pec
tat lone Real Estate Men Have
Done Greater Business Than
In Previous Year.
The year Just closed was one of pros
perity In Council Bluffs and nothing has
appeared on the horlxon yet to Indicate
but that the new year will be an equally
prosperous one. Trade conditions have
been excellent and the wholesalers and re
tailers can look back upon the last twelve
months with satisfaction. ' The recent fi
nancial flurry did not materially affect
Council Bluffs and after the excitement
during the first week had passed off
there was little If anything to Indicate
any financial trouble. Reports show that
the Christmas trade was equally as good
If not better than the preceding year.
During the year there was a constant
demand for labor, both skilled and un
skilled. Public Improvements kept pace
with private enterprises and there was
more building than for many years prev
ious. Summarised by Dnn.
E. W. Peterson, local manager for the
mercantile agency of R. G. Dun A Co..
makes the following report on the busi
ness record of Counrll Bluffs for 1907
and the prospects (or 1906:
In making a report of the financial con
ditions for Council Bluffs and vicinity, It
will have to be conceded that In general
the situation Is not as favorable as a
year ago. However, there are redeemable
features for 1&V7, and It must be borne
In mind that for several years past this
country has had unusual prosperity, and
when making a comparison, while the vol
ume of business in some Instances has
not been as great as 1906, on the whole the
wholesale and retail trade of the city
has been found satisfactory. In some few
Instances there has been a healthy In
crease In total sales and this Is highly
gratifying when the' conditions of the year
are considered. The financial stringency
of the last few months has had Its effect
on both the wholesale and retail trade
of the city, but the prompt action taken
on the part of the government, together
with the assistance of a few moneyed
men of the nation, has relieved matters
muterlally and If nothing startling occurs
to again cause a disturbance In financial
circles It Is hoped that matters will gradu
ally adjust themselves.
Among the Jobbers, some apprehension
Is expressed as to the probable effect the
present situation will have upon the trade
conditions for 1908, especially In view of
the presidential campaign In prospect and
Its attendant uncertainties. However, both
our Jobbers and retail houses report a
satisfactory year for 1907 and profits normal.
Collections In some quarters have not
been the best, caused largely by the action
of the various banks, the scarcity of cur
rency and the general feeling of uncer
tainty which existed for- a hrlef period.
Added to this a number of eastern con
cerns who have needed money, are push
ing their customers hard for a settlement
and these conditions have made collections
more or less riifllcult. However, favorable
reports are received In various quarters and
on the whole collections can not le called
as altogether unsatisfactory. When the
corn crop begins to move freely and live
stock dealers find an acceptable market It
Is believed there will be a perceptible Im
provement In the adjustment of debts.
As an evidence of the prosperity of the
west, notwithstanding . the financial dis
turbances or the east, this city reperts a
good holiday trade. I
Locally Council Bluffs haa had some ad
ditions to her commercial iutereats. The
Orcutt Manufacturing company has com
menced the manufacture of scales. The
Bloomer Cold Storage company erected a
large brick plant costing $ii7,tnj0, and It Is
expected It will be required to enlarge Its
)lant to meet the wants of Its increasing
usiness. H. Children's Sons Manufactur
ing company rebuilt a portion of Its plant
destroyed by fire and Keys Hrotlu-rs.
who had their plant destroyed by tire, have
about completed their new building.
The Devore Midwest Cow Milker com
pany Is a new corporation, which tllpd
articles of Incorporation at Charleston . W.
Va , on account of the favorable laws
regulating corporations In that state, but
will have their offices and works In this
city. The capital stock is reported to be
ShiO.fiftO, and when they get started It Is
hoped will prove a good enterprise for
Council Bluffs still ranks as a leading
Implement market of the west, the total
amount of Implements reported to be
handled and transferred being in the
nelghbnhood of V.OUO.UUO. The total retail
business of the city Is approximated at
$6,000,000 to $7,000,000.
As a favorable point for manufacturing
and Jobbing Council Bluffs holds out good
Inducements. Nine trunk railroads running
Into the city, together with excellent track
age facilities, offer encouragement to all
seeking a new location, together with the
assistance of an energetic . Commercial
club and enterprising citizens.
Banner Bulldlns; Year.
The year Just closed was a banner one
as to building. Every portion of the city,
It might be truthfully said, enjoyed more
or less of a building boom. Several sub
stantial business blocks and other struc
tures were erected In the business section,
while handsome and costly residences and
numerous dwellings of less pretension were
erected In practically every part of the city.
At the Christian Home, the boys' dormitory
building, the third of a series of new, mod
ern structures to be erected t the institu
tion, was completed, at a cost of approxi
mately $30,000. The Sisters of Mercy are
expending upwards of $.10,000 on the Ixr
etto seminary for small boys, at Oak
street and North Broadway, now neartng
completion. The R. H. Bloomer Ice and
Cold Storage company's new warehouse at
Third street and - Twelfth avenue was
erected during the year, at a cost exceeding
$00,000. The firm of Day & Hess erected
a handsome double office building on Pearl
and Main streets, with flats overhead, at
a cost of over $20,000, and City Treasurer
True Improved his property at the north
west corner of Broadway' and Eighth
street with a handsome business block, at
a cost of $25,000. Al lluber erected on West
Broadway a double store building, with
flats overhead, expending over $15,000 on
the Improvement. The Keller & Farns
worth Furniture company erected a large
addition to their store on Broadway. Chris
Btraub expended a large sum In remodelling
and modernizing his block on Pearl streety
between Broadway and First avenue, mak
ing it one of the hands,, m, ft office build
ings In the city today. Keys Bros, have re
built their carriage factory, which was
burned down In August, at a cost of about
$40,000. Among the handsome residences
completed and erected during the year may
be mentioned' that of I. F. Husx. costing
$12,000; that of Eldin Iiugee. costing close
to $10,000; that of Oscar Keeltaie. on East
Pierce street, costing about $10.00); that of
Frank Blank, costing over $4,000, and that
of M. M. Parkinson, deputy collector of In
ternal revenue, coating $4,000. Many resi
dences and cottages, ranging In cost from
$1,000 to $3,500, were erected during the year.
In the western part of the city, which has
enjoyed a phenomenal growth during the
last few years, there was great activity In
the building line, and It Is noticeable that
the dwellings erected are pf a more sub
stantial and costly character than hereto
fore. In fact, witnessed a better grade
of residences erected in all parts of the
...,,v .... rf,i- .v,- .u i.ti.i.
Ing permits, with $458,100 as the value of
the structures erected, were Issued. This
beats the record for 1906, which was 214
permits, with a gross value of $285,840
of the buildings erected. At the same
time the building permits cannot be taken
as a criterion, owing to the fact that
many houses are built without any permit
being taken out It Is asserted by city
officials that at least one-third of the
buildings erected annually are not In
cluded In the permit record.
The building permits for 1907 were as

Real Estate. ,
The real estate market was active and
steady during the year until the late finan
cial flurry gave It a temporary set-back.
The transfers of real estate as shown by
the records In the offloe of the county
recorder for 1907 are In value over $b00,000
in excess of those for 1906. Following Is

The business at the postofflce showed an
Incrense of 4 per oent over that for 1906.
The Increase of business has necessitated
the employing of several extra carriers In
the city. The free rural delivery service
has been Increased, the routes reorgan
ized resulting In the discontinuance of some
of the old star routes. Congressman Smith
has Hopes of securing from congress a
large addition to the amount already ap
proprlated for a much needed addition to
the federal building, ground for which was
purchased a few years ago.
The following will show the business of
the postofflce for 1906 and 1907:

Health Record Good.
Except for a slight epidemic of measles
during the first three months and what
could be hardly classed as an epidemic of
diphtheria during the last three months,
Council Bluffs during the last year was
comparatively free from sickness. During

100 cases df diphtheria, 31 cases of small

John McSorley, a grocer doing business at

II. R. Wright, state food and dairy com
missioner, charging htm with selling mis
branded and adulterated food to J. C. Ta'.e,
an Inspector of the state pure food depart

to contain a foreign flour, and that there
was no label on the package to show the
constituents of the package.
