ANOTHER VETO FROM MAYOR
Council Promptly Votes to Orerride
the Chief Executive.
MORE ATTORNEYS FOR BOND CASE
Streets to Bo Set Aside for Children
to Coast and Police Detail to
ee that Teams Keep Oat
of the Way.
The resolution to employ Messrs. Harl
Tlnley was pbmm! over the mayor's veto
by seven votes, Councilman Bellinger alone
voting to sustain the vtto.
Mayor Reads la Veto.
Mayor Maloney explained his reason for
vetoing tha reaolutlon providing for the
employment of Harl tt Tlnley a special
counsel in the water works litigation In the
United States court In the following com
munication to the city council laat night:
Tour action upon the communication from
the water works committee for the em
ployment of Messrs. Harl & Tlnley to
assist the city solicitor In the suit brought
In the federal court by the Nash company
against the city, amounts to the employ
ment of attorneys for that purpose at an
agreed compensation of J2.600. As this will
reinstate the old contract which was ter
minated, and we are all well satisfied that
an appeal will be taken by the defeated
party, la disapproved for the . following
1. I am opposed to employing any attor
ney for that purpose because none is
needed. I say this becauae the only real
question In that suit Is whether the law
under which the bonds are proposed to be
Issued is in violation ot the constitution.
The city solicitor has time and again as
sured us of the constitutionality of this
law and his written opinion on that point
will be found on page 110 of the pamphlet
recently Issued by the council. The law
itseif was prepared under the advice of
the attorneys proposed to be employed
after examination by them of this same
question (Seo page 43 of pamphlet), and
waa part of their work for which the
city has already paid the sum of $5,000.
The special committee on water has fre
quently, and presumably upon the advice
of the counsel employed, assured us that
this particular point was settled. It can,
therefore, be safely assumed that the city
solicitor, who lias had this question In
hand for more than a year and has had
the aid of the special counsel on the same,
can Intelligently explain our position to the
court and if It is not the law we could not
change It by Increasing our force of law
yers. 2. So far as any question In the case that
concerns the legality of the election Itself,
the city solicitor can have the assistance
of every officer and evory means at hand
to procure what testimony Is needed, but 1
do not regard the claim of the plaintiff
that the election was. Illegal In any partic
ular to be of any weight. There is only
the one question of Importance, and that Is
the constitutionality of the law.
3. The city has already paid for special
counsel on this particular matter of ST..0O0.
It Is proposed to pay Iu'pO for Mr. Klllpack's
services In the suit In the district couit
In which this same question Is Involved. It
Is now proposed to pay Messrs. Harl &
Tlnley $L'.5n0 for the same services In the
federal court. If the 1200 was a reasonable
fee for such services In the case In the
dlHtrict court how can It be claimed that
more than ten times that amount should
be paid for the same thing because It hap
pened to be In the federal court?
4. I favor a thorough defense of this
suit by the city, but I cannot approve of
what I believe to be a needless extrava
gance In that connection. In view of the
fact that the city is practically without
sufficient funds to pay its ordinary run
ning expenses, sucn a uamuty snouid not
be Incurred except when needed and theu
say tnat tiiey
believe he cannot handle it to the best
advantage, we should then employ a law
yer. But until that situation Is known to
us wu should nOt Incur un expense for
that purpose of nearly double the yearly
salary of the city solicitor.
AtlhouK'h this latter action was not by
I form of a resolution I have treated tt as
such, because It Is In effect an nppro
i priation of money to pay for such service,
I as It Is an Indirect method of making a
w,Ilual;l l" py wpwiHi uounvei oy aaopi-
B tuinmii wmeii we hii iiuuer-
Piomi an luuy oeiiieu. Ana lor me reasons
before mentioned I shall veto your action
Malt on Hydrant Rentals.
The resolutions instructing the commit
tee on fire and light to report the location
nnd number of fire hydrants that are of
little or no use to the city and Instructing
tte city solicitor to briug suit to recover
from the water works company the amount
of excessive hydrant rental atleged to have
been paid by the city were signed by the
mayor. It was suggested, however, by tha
mayor that it would have been better to
have ascertained what amount the city
claimed was duo on overpaid hydrant ren
tal before passing the latter resolution.
The new water rates ordinance was
passed without a dissenting vote and the
mayor announced that as he presttmed the
committee which was responsible for the
measure had given the matter a thorough
Investigation, he would sign It. Although
Ccuncllmon Bellinger voted to pass the
ordinance he took occasion to state that
he considered It had been framed up out
of malice and spite against the water
Two amendments were tacked onto the
ordinance before final passage. A sec
tion providing that meter rentals should be
paid monthly and bills under the flat rats
should be settled quartery was Inserted
At tho suggestion of the city solicitor the
section repealing nil former rate ordi
nances was amended to Include the specific
statement that It repealed the rate ordi
nance passed December 17, 1907. Thla la
the rate ordinance now in force.
The committee on police and health was
authorized to purchase a new team for the
police department and the horses now used
for the patrol wagon will be turned over
to the sewer department. "Old Tom," the
veteran horse used by the aewer depart
ment, will be chloroformed.
Prod for Attorney General.
Councilman Morgan asked that the city
solicitor and judiciary committee be In
structed to "atlr up" State Attorney Byers
in the matter of the status of the Omaha
Council Bluffs Railway company's fran
chise. "We ought to know under which
franchise. If any, the company Is operating
in Council Bluffs." declared Mr. Morgan,
who explained that the attorney general
had promised to look Into this matter at
the request of the West Council Bluffs
At the suggestion of City Physician Tubbs

children are to be permitted to coast and to

WBW MTJUCIPAl, LEGISLATION
Terminal Tarn Bill Amonaj Those
At the meeting of the legislative commit
tee of the Iowa League of Municipalities
to be held In Des Moines, City Solicitor
Clem F. Kimball, who Is a member of the
committee, will submit the drafts of two
bills which he has prepared and which It
Is expected will be Introduced at the present
session of the Slate legislature by Senator
C. Q. Saunders of this city. Mr. .Kimball
expects to leave for Des Moines this
One of the measures drafted by Mr. Kim
ball Is a terminal tax bill, which provides
for a radical change In the method of
assessing railroad property. The bill If
passed, and Mr. Kimball said yesterday
that he had every reason to believe that
uch a measure will undoubtedly carry In
both houses of the legislature, will mean
n added Income of several thousands of
dollars to the city of Council Bluffa every
year. Mr. Kimball's bill also provldea that
wherever possible the assessments of rail
road properties shall be made by the local
City Treasurer Frank T. True, who has
been one of the leaderr ln the movement
to bring about a revision of the railroad
terminal taxation laws, has compiled some
figures at the request of Senator Saunders.
Mr. True will not attend the meeting of
the legislative committee of the Iowa
League of Municipalities In Des Moln-s.
but will appear before the committee t
which the bill Is referred in the legisla
ture. Taking the ease of the Chicago Great
Western railroad, which entered Council I
Bluffs In 1903. as an example, Mr. True
gives figures showing the net loss to the
city In taxes by the present method of
assessing railroad property. This railroad
acquired for its right of way and terminals
2S1 pieces of property. In 1!X'2 the city ro
celved J3,2S4.3 In taxes from this property.
The following table shows the taxes paid
by the railroad company on these 2S1 pieces
of property during the six years since and
the annual loss to the city:
"ear. Taxes. toCltv.

1907 l.m&O 1.933.7K
190S 1.2S9.60 1,984.76
"I have taken the Chicago Great West
ern railroad merely as an example," said
City Treasurer True yesterday. "When
wo take into consideration the fact that
there are seven other roads, excluding the
l.'nlon Pacific, which is the only road that
Is paying full assessment, and not one of
thoso roads is paying more taxes ln pro
portion to the value of their property
than the Mason City & Fort Dodge is pay
ing, we can figure the loss to the city In
taxes which they have been unable to col
lect at upwards of 1175,000, based upon
the estimated loss on that one road.
The other bill prepared by Mr. Kimball
gives the. right to cities to acquire water
works plants, aa well as other public utili
ties, by condemnation proceedings where
the franchise has expired and where cities
have Issued bonds to construct or purchase
such plants, or where the citizens have
voted In favor of municipal ownership.
The bill has been drawn especially for
tho benefit of Council Bluffs, with a view
of enabling the city to resort to such con
demnation proceedings In the event of Its
failing to carry through the construction
of a new water works plant or the pur
chase of the present system.
The bill provides that the condemnation
proceedings shall bo ln the district court
and the value of the property sought to
be condemned shall be appraised by twenty-four
jurors drawn by the clerk of the
court, the auditor and sheriff upon order
of the Judge. These appraisers are to re
ceive the same compensation as petit Jurors.
Appeal can be taken from the award of
the appraisers as In other cases.
This bill, Mr. Kimball said yesterday,
would be lntroluced In the state legisla
ture by Senator Blunders.
HOSPITAL MAKES GOOD SHOWING

Reports at the annual meeting of the
Woman's Christian association yesterday
