Omaha Council Bluffs Railway and

upon the street named In the charter ordl
pance will expire in two years,

operating undor the franchise granted the
Council Bluffs, Ik Manawa tV East
Omaba' Construction company. In Pecem
er, lt7. which was assigned to the Omaha
A ;riunell Blaffs Suburban Railway com
pany; the company has no rights upon the
afreets of Council Bluffs whatsoever, aa
(his franchise became void and invalid
many years ago.
Even tinder the franchise of ins? granted
td the Omaha & Council Bluffs Railway A
Bridge company, the company has no rights
on Avenue- A and Fifth avenue.
This, is the substance ef 'the opinion of
Attorney General II. W. Byers, as ex
pressed yesterday afternoon In a confer
ence with committees representing the West
End and Went Council Bluffs Improvement
cluhs at the Grand hotel.
' rify' ftofleltor'a Oplnloa.
ClrV Solicitor Kimball agrees with the
attorney, gonerat with the exception that
In his opinion the street railway company
haa rights on Avenue A and Fifth avenue,
provided that the franchise of 18S0 Is sliil
In force. ;
,1 Mf, Kimball sums up his opinion in the
' Aa to the streets named In ordinance l.'4
One ordinance granting' a-charter to the
Cpuncll .Bluffs, , Lake Manawa A East
Omaha Construction company) and ac
tually used by the present operating com
panies, tbe tracks were all laid under the
old ordinance. 'with the exception of Twenty-eighth
street from Avenue C to Avenue
O and Sixteenth avenue and Sixth atreet
from Main t feet to the city limits. If thf
companies are operating under the old ordi
nance such tracks cannot be said to have
been laid within the time fixed in the ordi
nance. If the company haa abandoned the
old ordinance on these streets and claims
to be acting under ordinance 154, still the
tracks were not laid under this ordinance,
but under the old one. Aa to the uae of
Sixteenth avenue and Sixth street to the
city limits the rights are dependent upon
whether the franchise Is sufficient to grant
The whole franchise and rights there
under depends so much upon the determina
tion of facts and conditions and the appli
cation of legal propositions dependent
thereon that until a court of competent
Jurisdiction has determined that the fran
chise Is valid and subsisting the holding
companies can be Bald to have no sub
stantial rights thereunder to use the streets
of the city of Council Bluffs to maintain
wlies. poles and electric -apparatus with
which to operate a street railway. That is
to Bay, Its rights under the said ordinance
1.-4 must depend upon determination and
finding of the court upon questions In dis
pute, some of which have' been Indicated

to the Omaha A Council Bluffs Railway

"Under this ordinance, insofar aa Inform.
atlon I have been able to secure from the
records goes, the Omaha A Council Bluffs
Railway A Bridge company has the right
10 operate until iu on the streets spec
ifically named In the ordinance. On other
streets on which it haa been operating it
no runner rights.

Mr. Byers, however, stated that in his
pinion the Omaha A Council Bluffa Rail

rignis under the 18S charter when It se
cured the passage of and. filed ita accep-
ui me imy-year franchlae granted

which was subsequently declared invniM
by the courts. This was, however, a ques
tion wnicn tne courts alone could wid.
but the company's rights to operate on the
sireeis or Vouncll Bluffs would expire In
October, 1911. as he felt certain that no
court would hold that the franchise granted
the Council Bluff. Lake Manawa A Kaat
Omaha Construction, company, which was
subsequently assigned to tbe Omaha A
Council Bluffs Surburban Rajlway com-
iMtiir. his sun valid. This franchise
for a period of fifty years and this alone.
Mr. Byers said, was In his opinion suf

UUIU lu reacnea between the olty and
the company as to the future and .. t .
franchise which would Impose conditions
which might be demanded by the people of
Streets ajued Fraaealaa. ,
In his report Mr. Kimball says relative to
Hie question of streets authority to use
which waa granted undor the ordinance if
The ordinance of 1K6 granted authority
to construct, equip, mainttain and operatu
street rallwaya for the term of twenty-five
yeara upon Broadway, from the Missouri
river north to the olty limits;' South First
street and -upon Graham avenue by way
of Sixteenth avenue; High street; Thlril
street; Tenth avenue and Sixth atreet back
to Broadway, and 'such other streets, ave-
rues and alleys aa said company may here
after select with the consent and approval
of said city. The loop on Graham avenue
and Tenth avenue bark to Broadway waa
never constructed and the only street
named In said ordinance now In use bv the
company are Broadway from the Missouri
river to Oak street and Soutti First street
from Broadway to Graham avenue and
Graham avenue from South First street to
Hlahta urn Other Ktreets.
Regarding the im ordinance Mr. Kimball
sa y s :
The meetings of the city council, vote
and proceedings on the ordinance as far
as the record shows, are regular and valid
Insofar as they relate to the ordinance of
1st. The records show that the ordinance
was duly and legally published and that
the written acceptance was filed within the
time provided In the ordinance. This ordi
nance haa been generally acquiesced In by
the city of Council Bluffs and the con
ditions to be performed by the company
as provided therein have been recognised
by the city as having been complied with
for many years and the franchise granted
by this ordinance appears to be valid and
subsisting until October 2fl, lull.

the provision "suoh other aireets of said

itn the consent and nDDroval of said
city," the company has been given doubt-
rui rights and the city acquiesced In the
use of these additional streets of the city
under the ordinance of 18X6.
Mr. Byers gives It as his opinion that the
street railway company- has no rights on
Fifth avenue or on Avenue A under the
1S8 ordinance by reason of Its surrender
of rights on Broadway. The mere acquie
scence by the city to this proposition of
a change of streets, Mr. Byera says, waa
not sufficient. City Solicitor Kimball dif
fers from Mr. Byers on this. He holds that
by "unanimous acceptance" by the city
council of the -street railway company's
proposition for the exchange of its rights
on West Broadway for the right to occupy
Avenue A and Fifth avenue were acquired
by the ' company and these have been
strengthened by subsequent transactions
between the city and the company relative
to these streets, f
Before leaving the city yesterday after

, Start un Deep Well.
PIERRE, 8. D., Oct. 20. (Special.) The
drtllltng work 411 the deep well at this city
was begun yesterday, and It is hoped that
before spring there will be actual knowl
edge of what lies underneath this part of
the state in the way of either oil or gas.
The rig which has been secured for the
work is guaranteed by the manufacturers
to be good for 5.000 feet in depth it de
sired, but It is not likely that any such
depth will be reached. The gas flow In
the artesian' water here Is reached at
about 1,400 feet, and It is believed that
another thousand feet or a total of 1,000
at the moKt. will show whether a stronger
flow of gas without the water, or tonic
other natural fuel can be secured. At any
rate the city will know to a certainty
juat what is to bu depended upon In the
way of a gas supply here, and If the strong
er flow Is found, there will be something
of material vulile to build upon.
