Water Works laklna
The C. B. Nssh company of Omaha,
which brought suit to restrsin the city
from Iseulng the proposed I60O.00O bonds
for the construction of a municipal water
works sstem. Is not satisfied with the
amending of the record for the supposed
meeting of thd city council on the night
on Snptember 7 of Isst year, - as recom
mended by City Solicitor Kimball. The
amended record, the company says, In a
rommun'cati.-n which was read at the meet
ing of the city council last night, will not
conform to the facts In the case;
At the suggestion of the city solicitor,
the record of the meeting on September 7
was amended to read that "by agreement
and without objection It Is ordered that
the regular meeting of September 1 be ad
journed on that date to September 8. and
that the city clerk make a record of such
proceeding," while the record of the dis
puted meeting on September 7 waa amended
to read as follows: "There being no
quorum present, by unanimous consent of
all present the council did then adjourn to
Tuesday, September 8, at 8 p. m., pursuant
to adjournment." ' , ' '
The C. B. Nash company. In Iti com
munication, ssys that the fscts shown by
the testimony given at the hearing before
Commissioner Ferguson are that Council
men Skodsholm and Jensen, on the even
ing In question, namely, September 7, were
In the city engineer's office for about an
hour, , engaged in general conversation
while waiting for other councilmen to ap
pear; that neither of thetn was In" the
council chamber on the evening Iq ques
tion; that no other councilman nor the
city clerk nor his deputy . wss present?
that there was no assembling of the coutj
cllmanlc body on September T, no organiza
tion of a council meeting on said date, .nor
any attempt at Such an organization, The
company demands that the correction of
the record of the pretended meeting should
be made to conform to the facts.
The communication was ordered received
and placed on. file after a statement by
Mr. Kimball to the effect -that the asser
tions of the company were hot supported
by the facts In the matter. , .
Paymeat of Warrants.
The following written opinion, relative to
the payment of certain warrants out of
the water works sinking fund' was sub
mitted by City Solicitor Kimball:
The ensbllng act allowing the city a use
the water works sinking fund was approved
February 23, and went into effect by pub
lication. February 24, 1900. It provide tor
the poyment of expenses of acquiring a
new plant out of the water works sinking
fund. Relative to warrants Nos. 2401 to
2403. Inclusive. 2783 and 2785, Inclusive, to
Harl & Tinley for litigation, will say that
thla litigation waa over matters not in
volving a suit preparatory to purchase or
for erection of wster works, but a ault to
determine whether the franchise of the old
company had expired. In my .opinion,
therefore, these warrants are not payable
out of the water works sinking fund and
the general or contingent fund should not
be reimbursed nn those Items. Warrants
Nob. 4408, 4410. 4982, 7588, 768?. 7S67, 788, 8662
and 8o63 were all lasued for 'expenses 'Of
engineers preparatory to the purchase 'or
erection of a water works plant for the
city, and In my Judgment the funds used
for the payment of these warrants may he
reimbursed out of the said water works
sinkhig fund. Warrants Nos. 8S71 and 8S73
were used for the preparation and printing
of information on the water works subject
preceding the election. In my Judgment
this expenditure wss for the general en
lightenment of the public and not a neces
sary expense, referred to In the law, and
that the emergency fund should not be re
imbursed out of the water works fund for
these two Items.
Relative to warrants Nos. 8674 (o 8769. In
clusive, Nos. 8983 to S9S7. Inclusive, Nos.
9248 and M20. were all warrants issued in
payment for expenses Incident to the spe
cial election and are by ssld law payable
out of the water works sinking fund and
the general fund should be reimbursed out
of surh fund for the amount thereof.

WILLIAM M'CtNB KIM.F.n II Y CAPS
Ke One Saw AcrtaVat a ad tncertala
How It naaseaed.
William J. McCune of 230 Graham avenue,
a well known resident of this city, met al
most instant death yesterday afternoon
beneath the wheels of a freight train In
the yards of the Northwestern railroad.
Mr. McCune was agent for a life Insurance
company and during the afternoon he went
to the yarda to look for a man to whom he
expected to Issue a policy. While there
were no eye-witnesses of the accident. Indi
cations are that McCune cams to his death
by attempting to ' board a freight train
which was coming up town. The accident
happened In the south end of the yards
nesr the Ice house at Avenue I.
Shortly after 1 o'clock McCune told some
friends that he had to go to the Northwest
ern yarda to look up a man named Cal
laghan, who was talking about taking out
some insurance. He boarded tha ear at
the corner of Broadway and Pearl atreet
and about two hours later word was re
ceived up town that he had been run over
and killed by a freight train In the rail
How the accident happened Is not defi
nitely known, as no one In the yards, so
far as could be ascertained yesterday aft-'
ernoon saw him fall under tha wheels. A
train of freight cars was being made up
on what is known as track No. 4, of which
W. J. Weatrlo waa the conductor and J.
F. Stageman waa the foreman of the
switching crew. All of the cara had been
coupled up and the train waa being pulled
out for the freight depot when Stageman
saw what he thought waa a coat being
whirled around by the wheels of the last
car. Stageman at once had the train
brought to a atandstill and Investigation '
disclosed the mangled body of a man later
Identified as McCune lying beside the track
but a few feet behind the train. McCune,
although both limbs were' severed above
the knee and the. right arm waa almost
torn from the shoulder, was still breathing
when the train crew reached him. Death,
however, releaaed him from his sufferings
In a few minutes.
The belief that MsCune, after falling to
find the man he was seeking in the rail-;
road yards, noticed the train pulling out
for uptown and attempted to board it is
borne out by the fact that his watch and
a email sum of money which had evi
dently fallen out of his pockets were found
by the rall almost a block north of where
the train waa brought to a .stop. McCune's
body waa found on the west of the tracks,
while all the members of the crew of the
train were on the other side, and this ac
counts for the fact that they did not notice
him attempt to board the train, If such was
Coroner Treynor ordered the body taken
to Cutler'a undertaking rooma. Dr. Treynor
had not decided last . evening whether he
would hold an Inquest. He said he did not
think an Inquest would be necessary,' but
would not decide until he had consulted
with the relatives of the dead man.
' Mr. McCune Is survived by hla wife and
ene son. For a humher' of years he was
traeling salesman for the Btewart Bros,
grocery house. From April f. 1908, to. April
1, 1907, he was secretary of the Council
Bluffa lodge of Elks and recently had be
come associated with the Alliance LJfe In
surance company as its local agent. He
came to Council Bluffs about ten years
ago from Johnson county, of which his
father was one of the first settlers. His
sister Is the wife of Judge O. D. Wheeler
of the district court. Judge Wheeler, on
being Informed of the accident, at once
adjourned court and proceeded to McCune's
Mr. McCune was a prominent member of
the local lodge of the United Commercial
Travelers' association, in which he held an
Jnsurance policy for $,.3fl0. He Is also ald
to have held a policy for $5,000 In one of
the Iowa accident Insurance companies.

amber of Other Case Yet to Come
Before the Coart.
M. 8. Odle jft Pea Moines, attorney for
the Iowa Anti-Saloon league, began his
Inning against the saloon men of Council
Bluffs in the district court yesterday. In
the twenty-eight injunction aults brought
by him In the name of Joaeph Leader of
Oakland decrees were entered by Judge
Wheeler in four.
Injunctlor.a were Issued by the court In
the cases against F. B. Cunningham, pro
prietor of the Hoffman saloon; Neumayer
& Mergen, proprietors of the Neumayw
hotel bar; Emtl Kuhl and Mra. Anna
Karrer. The last two named conduct sa
loons In the village of Treynor. In each
of the four cases Attorney Odle wss given
Judgment for an attorney fee of $26, as
provided by law.
In addition to the decree of injunction
estralnlng the defendant saloonkeepers
from selling liquor contrary, to the pro
visions of the mulct law. the court In each
case laaued an order of abatement against
the building In which the saloon waa con
ducted. The decree of the court will not necea
tarlly put the defendants out of business.
The filing of abatement bonds will stay
the execution 'of the writ of abatement, but
any future violation of the mulct law,
however, slight, will result in the forfeiture
of the bond if complaint la made to the
,-ourt. The amount of these bonds In the
rases dispensed of yesterday will be fixed
by the court.
About hulf of the twenty-eight caaes were
submitted to the court on agreed state
ments of fact, while evidence will be taken
In the others. In ths cases of ths Hoffman
saloon and the Neumayer hotel bar it was
admitted that a technical violation of the
mulct law had been committed by having
other doors to the saloon than the entrance
In the cases In which technical viola
tions are alleged by the proaecution, argu
ments will be heard today. Two of ths
principal technical grounds upon which At
torney Odle seeks Injunctions are that the
defendant aaloonkeeper failed to file a
new bond each year, as required by law,
but merely renewed the old bond, and
that the mulct lax. Instead of being psld
on January 1, as provided by law, waa not
paid until later In the month.
A large nvmber of the members of ths
Woman's Christian Temperance union, con
spicuously displaying the white ribbons
of their organisation, were In ths court
room to lend Attorney Odle their moral
support. Rev. J. M Williams, pastor of
