MAYOR'S VETO OVERRIDDEN
All But One Member of Council Take
Side Against Him.
WATER, BONDS ARE TO BE SOLD
City Is to Pay Cost of Testing Legality
of the Isaac to Pay for the
Construction of the New
Water Works System.
The city council In a specially called
session, last evening passed the resolutions
providing for the Issuance of the 1600,000
bonds for the construction of the proposed
municipal water works plant and author
izing an appropriation of (300 to defray the
expense of testing the legality ot the Issue
over the vetoes of Mayor Maloney. Both
resolutions were passed over the veto, by
a vote of 7 to 1, Councilman Bellinger alone
voting to sustain the mayor.
Recognised aa speaking (or his commit
tee and the other members of the council
who are advocating; municipal ownership
of the water works, Councilman Jensen,
chairman of the committee on water works,
read the following statement when It came
his turn to vote on the question of sus
taining the mayor's veto of the resolution
providing for the Issuance of the bonds:
Statement by Jensen.
That we consider that It Is the duty ot
the city council to proceed with the ut
most diligence and dispatch In all matters
pertaining to the construction ot a munici
pal waterworks system, to the end that
the will of a majority of the people of
Council Bluffs repeatedly expressed may
be carried out at the earliest possible mo
ment and that all tactics of a dilatory
nature should no longer be considered, but
that we should all work toward securing
for the city an adequate and clear supply
of water for domestic and public use lor
an our cmsena,
That your committee on finance and your
committee on waterworks, to whom was
referred the matter of supplying the plans
and specifications for a waterworks sys
tem and to provide the funds for the con
struction of the system by the sale of
bonds, have after careful and thorough in
vestigation ot all the facts and conditions
relative and pertaining to the build. ng of
a water plant, and providing the means to
meet the cost thereof, ana your commit
tees being thoroughly In accord with the
wlshe of the people for a speedy con
clusion of all matters In regard to the
building of a water plant, have come to
the conclusion that only through the tra
medlace disposal of the bonds can anything
definite be accomplished, and that It would
be a waBte of valuable time and effort and
a useless expense to again advertise for
hlda for the conatructlon ot a water pianc,
without flrat having made provision to
pay the coat thereof. Judging from the past
that it would not result In any competitive
But your committees have the assurance
of our consulting engineers, who have had
many years' experience in building munici
pal water plants, that as soon as the funds
are actually provided for the building of
a plant we win receive oius irum uu
tractors and engineers who make a spe
cialty of Installing water plants and thus
secure competitive bids and Nthe lowest
price according to the prevailing market
price or material mu -That
your commit teea have been told and
have reaaon to believe that no firm of con
tractor or engineers would bid on a
waterworks system In view of a possible
rising market, knowing that the city
would not be In a position to enter inta
a contract for an indefinite period of time
after the bids were opened, that is until
after the bonds had been offered for sale,
the validity of the Issue passed upon and
the funds actually in the hands of the
city treaaurer. ' ..
That part of the mayor's veto message
referring to the engraving of the ' bonds
does not seem to have any application. The
resolution does not compel the city to have
the bonds engraved, only J,1nhihJ?ln1
ot bond and stating what shall be prlntsd
thereon, but in any case the cost of en
graving the bonds must be paid by the
city directly or Indirectly in some form,
for if the purchasers of the bonds are
compelled to, have the bonds engraved, the
bids for the bonds will necessarily be less
than If the bonds were furnished by the
That the objection to disposing of the
bonds at private sale Is not well taken,
the resolution merely provides that the
bonds may be sold at private or public
sale, and does not direct they shall be
sold at private sale only. The finance com
mittee will no doubt ascertain which
method will be tha most advantageous to
Not All Issued at Once.
Wa An not understand that the finance
committee contemplates that all the bunds
shall be disposed ot at once, and thua
compel the city to pay lnlereat on the
money long before It Is used, but rather
that the bonds shall bo disposed ot at
aucn time and In such amounts as may
seem necessary to carry on the work ot
construction. It Is necessary at this time
to provide for the cost ot plans, speci
fications, estimates and details, in fact for
all the expenses Incidental to the pre
liminary work ot building a water plain
and at the same time secure an opinion
is to the validity of the entire bond issue,
as it is apparent that If the 10.0u or S.wu
if these oonds are lugal the rest of the
issue la alao legal.
It is not necessary to Issue the entire
amount of the $jW,uU0 of water works
bonds, If after the contract has been
awarded It Is found that the whole amount
is not required. It la not necessary to
dispose of tin in. and the bends do not
draw any interest' while In the hands ot
the city treuaurer, tha Interest starting
only on the delivery of the bonds to a pur
chaser. The amount of interest that the bonds
will brills; to the purchasers Is not fixed
by the per cent of Interest printed on the
bonus or ccupons, but Is regulated by tne
market price of money at the time the
bond Is uegotluU'd, and the desirability of
Hie bond a to length of time and the
security back of It, thus, a t per cent bond

per cent bond would. I do not know cf

at par, as suggested by the mayor's mes
sage. t e cannot regard that portion of the
mayor's message referring to the interest
on the bonds as being an argument against
the painting of the resolution now under
consideration by tne council, but rather as
an argument against the building of a water
plum by the city, as it is well known that
bonds can not be sold without paying in
terest tiiereon, and that such Interest must
come out of the bonda themselvea until the
plant Is In operation; It is also well known
that it is not possible to construct a plant
of this sixe and not make any payment
tt-treon until It Is completed, and were It
possible to make such an arrangement with
a contractor he would no doubt charge the
city u much greater rate of interest on
Tli" money he had Invented In the plant
than tha city will have to pay on the bonds.
This Hem of interest during construction
was taken into consideration by the water
works commute? in making its estimate of
the cost of the plant.
Had your committee on water works rea
son to believe that we had the hearty co
operation of the mayor In our efforts to
provide a suitable water supply system for
the city, we would no doubt be glad to
consult with the chief executive of the city
In a matter of such Importance to all our
people, but inasmuch as the mayor an

Mayor Makes Reply.
When Councilman Jensen concluded the
reading of the statement Mayor Maloney
said with some warmth: "I told you and
every member of the council that when
you had got your plans completed, had
advertised for bids, had awarded the con
tract and same had been ratified by the
people I would at once sign the bonds.
This Is what I have told everybody. I
have been and am now ready to sign tha
bonds at the proper time."
Councilman Jensen replied by saying
that he and the other members of the
councU regarded the course of the mayor
merely as an attempt to thwart their ef
forts to secure municipal ownership and
that If they followed the mayor's sug
gestion they might aa well abandon the
When the vote wag taken on the resolu
tion authorizing the expenditure ot 00
to teat the validity of the bond issue
Councilman Jensen read the following
statement in explanation of the overruling
of the veto:
We do not think that the mayor Is
Justified In questioning the good faith
of the attorney engaged in thin case by
the plaintiff to test the validity of the
bonda, simply because the amount of
money appropriated by the council does
not appear to be sufficiently large In the
estimation of the mayor for the aervlce
to be rendered, as many of our citizens
have given freely both of their time and
money to further the cause of municipal
ownership of our water works system,
without any expectation of financial re
We think the mayor la mistaken when
he aays In hla veto message that the city
council assured the people through Its
water works book that all matters per
taining to the bond Issue were legal as
the special election, the bond resolution.
tne iorm ot the bond and many other
matters have taken place after the issuing
of the book referred to, it would not
have been possible for the committee in
charge of the printing of the book to
have included any opinion on theae mat
ters. I do not think that the resolution
referred to reflects on the legal ability
of our city attorney In this matter, as it
should be well known that no purchaaera
of municipal bonda would take the bonds
on the advice of the attorney for the city
that is offering the bonds for sale.
That It is in good faith and on the ad
vice of our city attorney that the council
passed the resolution under consideration
bo that we could get an adjudication on
the validity of the bonds as soon as pos
sible. We do not think that the position of the
mayor Is well taken in regard to making
the purchasers of the bonds test the
validity of the Issue, aa the bidders for
these bonda will no doubt offer a larger
premium If the bonda have been passed
On by the courts.
Signs One Resolution.
In attaching his signature to the resolu
tion aaklng the representatives from Pot
tawattamie county to secure if possible the
enactment or an amendment to the present
law to enable the payment of preliminary
expenses attendant on the purchase or con
struction of a municipal water works plant
by the city out of the sinking fund, Mayor
slaloney suggested certain changes In the
draft of the bill, and these were concurred
in by the council.
Although the meeting was called spe
cially to discuss the resolutions relating
to the bond Issue, the council took up the
matter of the complaint of C. A. Chapman
of Cook avenue iRgalnst City Scavenger
Dobon. Chapman, it transpired, had en
deavored to get a cesspool cleaned for the
last three months without success. He had
appealed to members of the council, the
Board of Health and other authorities
without result. After more or less discus
sion the city clerk was Instructed to notify
Dobson that his license would be revoked
unless he attended to the matter without
further unnecessary delay.
The council then adjourned to the regular
meeting Monday, January 4.
Discovery has been made that with one
exception all of the summer cottages on
the norifl shore at Lake Manawa have

most stripped of their contents, while
everything of value, was taken from the

Parole for Him.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
PES MOINES. Dec. 29 (Special.)
County superintendents from all parts of
Iowa arriving here for the state teachers
convention are entering discussions, which
Indicate that one of the hottest debates
of the big teachers' meeting will be
Wedneaday afternoon at their department
round table, when Prof. Bolton of Iowa
City, member of the Iowa School Law
revision commlaalcn, will read the recom
mendations to be made by that commission
to the legislature this winter.
The special feature of the report that Is
attracting attention and will furnish
ground for debate is that suggestion that
the county be made the school unit in
stead of the township as at present.
Naturally this would greatly Increase the
labors and responsibilities of county super
intendents. Many will urge that If such
a law Is passed the compensation of county
superintendents should be greatly Increased
In most counties. It Is learned that some
county superintendents are greatly , op
posed to the proposed new system and
have stated they will do what they can
to defeat such a measure becoming a law
at the hands of the present general as
sembly. New Sewajre System Needed,
"Fertility of Iowa's soil might be saved
from depletion," said Wesley Green of the
State Horticultural society today, "by
changing the present sewage system, or
want of system In this state. The pres
ent method of dumping sewage Into the
streams to be pumped up Into the water
mains of the next city below is dangerous
to the health of the entire state, and the
population Is so Increasing that soon some
change must be made from hls method.
I believe the best method ot sewage dis
posal Is to oarry It out upon the land and
use it for fertilizing. This Is not an orig
inal Idea or an untried one. Chino so dis
poses of sewage and fertilizes great fields.
Our sanitary engineers will have to change
their plans, for they are now working on
wrong fundamental principles. Much of
our disease Is the result of our present
Inefficient and dangerous system of sewage
Nels J. Lee of Emmet county, an active
candidate for the speakership of the house
of representatives, was In Des Moines to
day, looking up members who might have
strayed into the city. The speakership Is
rapidly growing more Interesting and Is
simmering down to quite an extent. Rep
resentative Meredith, It Is understood, has
not as yet made an open statement that
he will be an active candidate for the place,
but some of hla friends Insist he will be.
Paul Stlllman has admitted that he will
not make an active fight for the position.
Representative Marsten, It Is asserted, has
written letters to all of the members mak
ing quite elaborte claims as to why he is
entitled to ' the honor. Representative
Hackler la not developing much strength.
Representative White Is making an active
campaign. forl;th place and claims he will
control prstotically the "farmer"' vote In
the house. Harding of Woodbury and Dar
rah of Lucas are writing letters to mem
bers and making a quiet campaign. Rep
resentative Feeley of Blackhawk was In the
city a few days ago and expressed himself
as well satisfied with his prospects.
School Candidates Scarce.
So far but one name has been men
tioned as n ' possibility for president of
the Iowa State Teachers' association. That
is E. J. H. Beard of Newton. The elec
tion will be hold Thursday afternoon, at
which time the question of changing the
time of the annual meeting will be con
sidered. Mr. Beard is not an active can
didate for the honor. His name has but
been mentioned. The teachers claim there
la no politics in their association and plan
to taboo any peraon who might seek honors
and adopt political methods to further hla
or her Interest,
Parol for Ware.
Considerable Interest centers In the per
sistent rumor that an effort is to be made
to secure a parole for Roy Ware, cashier
of the defunct Scymouro Farmers' and
Drovers' State bank. As yet no applica
tion has been filed with the State Board
of Parole. The fact lhat an effort Is to
be made so soon to secure his release
will recall the attitude assumed by his
wife, who protested his Innocence at the
time of his arrest and said that If he
was sent to the penitentiary she would
see to it that five other men went with
him. There were many people who be
lieved Roy Ware was the scapegoat for
the defalcations of others. Ware had
been a man of exemplary habits and was
an active member of the church. When
the announcement was first made that he
had been indicted for defaulting $3)0,000
no one wished to believe IU What became
of the money? Ware had nothing to show
for it. There have been some persistent
rumors that other people Interested in the
bank had made Irregular withdrawals
from the bunk and had In this way
forced Ware into a position of being
guilty. He was convicted and sentenced
and the rumor that an effort is to be
made to release him makes It lntereating
to know who will be back of the move
ment. That there la yet. much aympathy for
Ware in his home town is certain. He
was a poor boy and handicapped by being
dwarfed on account of spinal trouble. Ho
grew up in the community and sained a
reputation for honesty. His conviction
created a decided sensation and It is cer
tain his effort to get a parole will provoka
equally as much interest.

The Badge of Honesty
Is on every wrapper of Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery because a full list of ingredients composing it is printed there
in plain English. More than forty years of experience has proven
its superior .worth as a blood-purifier and invigorating tonic for
' the cure of stomach disorders and all liver ills. It builds up the
run-down system as no other tonic can in which alcohol is used.
The active medicinal principles of native roots such as Golden
Seal and Queen's root, Stone root and Mandrake root, Bloodroot
and Black Cherrybark are extracted and preserved by the use of
chemically pure, triple-refined glycerine.
Send to Dr. R. V. Pierce at Buffalo, N. Y., for free booklet
which quotes extracts from well-recognized medical authorities
such as Drs. Bartholow, King, Scudder, Coe, Ellingwood and a
- host of others, showing that these roots can be depended upon
for their curative action in all weak states of the stomach, accom
panied by indigestion or dyspepsia as well as in all, bilious or liver
complaints and in all "wasting diseases" where there is loss of
llesh and gradual running down of the strength and system.
The "Golden Medical Discovery" makes rich, pure blood and
so Invigorates and regulates the stomach, liver and bowels,
and through them, the whole system. Thus all skin affections,
blotches, pimples and eruptions as well as scrofulous swellings
and old open running sores or ulcers are cured and healed,
In treating old running sores, or ulcers, it is well to insure their healing to apply to them
Dr. Pierce's . All-Healing Salve. If your druggist don't happen to have this Salve in
stock, send fifty cents in postage stamps to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Invalids' Hotel and Sur
gical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., and a large box of the "All-Healing Salve" will reach
you by return post.
You can't afford to accept a secret nostrum as a substitute for this non-alcoholic
medicine OF known composition, not even though the urgent dealer may therebv
make a little bigger profit. Though he offers the substitute for a less price vol
can't afford to experiment with your health. Go where they give you what vou at
for without argument. 1
