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.

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. What was said with resoect to the war rtnte Nos. 2401 to 244. Inclusive, to Harl ft Tlnlev. 1a true of wsrrants Nos. 4S8S to 4385. inclusive, issued to the same parties. - 4""B arch la Street.'

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 road yards. 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 the case. 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 home. 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. rota s a loo i II ARB EXJOINKD 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 door. 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 Broadway Methodist church, was the only minister present. Some amusement wss caused at the morn ing aeaalon during the trial of the ssloon cases by the appearance of a "boorrible ex ample" In the court. The stranger, who unseen to Captain L B. Ceuelna, the court Council Bluffs bailiff, had pre-empted one of tha seata, made hla presence known by his loud snor ing. Efforts to awaken the sleeper dis closed the fact that the man was evi dently suffering from an overindulgence In strong liquor. The police were notified and the strsnger, who was booked as John Doe. was given a ride to the city Jail In the patrol wagon. Ileal Estate Traasfera.
