I p sl Dlseretoa Flaw Called
for tram Ike City
Alderman Tounkerman laat night at the
rlty council meeting endeavored to get
Immediate action on the water works set
tlement matter by Introducing a resolution
Instructing the city solicitor to compel the
water company to collect Ita long unpaid
fire hydrant tills on the basis of 40 per
hydrant, but during the pause that fol
lowed waiting for a second, which was not
found. Alderman Fisher, the father of the
compromise measure and amendment to
the rate ordinance passed under suspen
sion of the rules at the previous meeting,
asked that the matter be deferred until
next Monday night. He said ht was HI.
Alderman Fisher said ha wanted to do a
little talking and his voire needed repair
ing to do a good Job, which he promised
would be satisfactory to everybody ' but
Alderman Tounkerman, Harding and the
"Improvers." He said there were several
things he wanted to talk about as well as
the water problem. He wanted to find out
why It was that the city was being called
upon to pay such Increasingly heavy pro
portions of all of the paving ordered and
Intimated that one member of the council
was trying to discover a means of getting
a lot divided, so that the vacant portlou
of It would be Isolated and made to bear
the cost of paving, and thus compel the
city to bear the heaviest part of the coJt
Hardin Hlsrs to Keply.
This taunt bi ought' Alderman Harding
to Ida feet with the declaration that It the
alderman from the Third ward meant the
remark for him he wanted to brand It as
an unqualified falsehood. Fisher denied
that he referred to Harding, but intimated
he must be guilty. Younkerman then said
the thrust was meant for him and he ex
plained that the council had assessed a
lot on Henton street, purchased one week
before the paving assessment was made,
at (TO mora than he paid for It and he had
not objected since his first failure to set
WMie the water bill settlement was un
der discussion and before it was abruptly
suppressed. Alderman Evans (sald he had
voted for the settlement because he be
lieved It was right and because the city
solicitor had declared the city was liable
for the debt. Then the whole thing was
submerged hy referring the notice of In
junction suit to the mayor and city so
licitor, with power to act, which includes
the carrying out of the agreement to pay
the entire 'bill.
- User-Valuation Protesta.
A large number of protests against over
valuatlon of property for pavement costs
ware received and several of them allowed.
Including three of K. M. Plyter and K.
Coyne. Bids were' opened for the pur
chase of a discarded fire horse which the
council declined to let Mayor Maloney
sell last spring for H. The bids ranged
from til to 11.. .0 and the animal was sold
to Jamea Brooks for that amount.
Mayor Maloney awakened the council by
a sharp communication catling attention
to the pre-election promises to do some
thing with Indian creek to curb Us floods
and asked that the city engineer be In
structed to report a plan for diversion of
the waters In accordance with tha coun
cil's Instructions, dated November 8. 1909.
Mr. lariyre made a verbal report, stating
that it would cost $333,000 to divert the
stream at the north line of the city limits
and to change Its course at Bryant
street, and this matter was laid over until
After a l.ng session and much minor

Manager E. W. Hart
iteturns from East;
Water Case to Court
Receiver of Council Bluffs Syitem
Sayi United Statei Court Will Have
to Decide on Matter.
F.dward V. Hart, manager and receiver
of the Council Bluffs waterworks, returned
yesterday morning from a threw weeks'
vl.lt to the environments of his old home at
New -Bedford, Mass , stopping at Boston,
New York and Philadelphia Mr. Hart
arrived home Just In time for another In
ning In .the old waterworks fight, and
could not repress an expression of extreme
weariness when asked what he thought of
the situation as It now stood. Mr. Hart
refused to commit himself to any statement
further than to say that he had no author
ity to act In the matter of the settlement
of the heldup fire hydrant bills, except as
he was directed by the United State
court. He said he would submit to Judge
MrPherson the agreement of the city
council to pay the rentals on the proffered
basis of M per hydrant, but would do so
without recommendation. He said he would
also submit the proposition to the bond
holders' committee for aproval In the same
way. Their approval, however, would have
little influence on the settlement. If Judge
McPhereon approved It and Issued an order
directing him to -accept the offer of settle
ment he would do so. but net otherwise.
Asked If the company, or what remains
of It represented by the bondholders' com
mittee, would, accept the new amendment
to the existing rate ordinance, he tald they
had nothing whatever to do with It. They
could neither accept nor refuse It. The
entire management of the old company's
affairs Is now under the control of the fed
eral court, said Mr. Hart and that court
Is the sole source of orders.
Mr. Hart spent considerable time Investi
gating municipal water sup! I sr. especially
In relation to methods of purification, and
was greatly pleased to find that the meth
ods employed In the Council Bluffs plant
were fully up-to-date. The treatment of
the water here, he said, lacked nothing
that was approved by sanitary authorities
of eastern cities.
Mr, Hart discovered that the epidemic of
typhoid fever has prevailed in the New
England states for .everal months, and
that the Masachusetts hospital and the
Marine hospital authorities: have demon
strated the efficiency of Innoculatlon to
tecure immunity. In the. worst stricken dis
tricts the prevalency of the disease, had
been reduced to less than 1 per cent by
Mr. Hart was greatly Impressed with the
wonderful changes that have been made In
the character of the old town. New Bed
ford, where he spent his boyhood and early
manhood. Famous for more than a cen
tury as the center of the wha'ina: Industry
It has lost all 'tracra of that bUFiness and I
become a great manufacturing center.
Along the water front, where hundreds of
whaling vessels used to berth, there are j
now nearly five miles of solid factory build- i
ings. chiefly cotton mills, and not a whaler '
ever. heard of. !
LITTLE COMPETITION FOR j
THE COUNTRY' TAX TITLES
I'aaal - Bidders on Hand to Sec are
what Was Offered Few Want
The old days of excited bidding and all
day wrangling over the opportunity to buy
tax titles appear to have passed away for
good. The annual delinquent tax sale oc
curred yesterday morning and lasted a lit
tle more than two hours. It used to re
quire from one to two days to clear up the
books and sell the property of bad tax
payers. Yesterday there were less than a
dozen bidders tn the office of the county
treasurer, and they were as undemonstra
tive as the participants In school examina
tions.. A year ago It required still lss
time to sell the delinquent lists. The
amount of property Involved was about the
same as last year, with the exception of
the amount of specials. Including the drain
age ditch delinquenc.es. There were very
few bidders for the tax receipts issued
against farm property for ditch construc
tion. For some reason the few bidders
were susp clous of the ditch tax and a good
deal of it failed to be sold.
Among the bidders few new faces were
seen. They were chiefly those who make
a business of attending tax sales and buy
ing for Investment purposes. Among those
present was the veteran A. J. Seaman of
Omaha who never falls to attend an an
nual tax sale In Omaha. Council Bluff?.
Denver and 8t. Joseph. In Colorado the
rales occur In September, and Mr. Seaman
says he has frequently walked from Omaha
to Denver for the fun of It.

GRISWOLD, la, Dec. 6 (Special. )-The
handsome new I'nlon church, which has
been recently completed, on Sunday was
dedicated with Impressive services.
The building IS a handsome veneered
brick 4Hx7: feet and finished throughout
with fir and seated with opera chairs. H
has a seating capacity of about 600.
The original plans of this movement were
to consolidate the Presbyterian and Chris
tian churches of the town and make one
strong congregation, but though some little
petty Jealousies this plan fell through and
the malorlty of the members of both con
gregations went together and organised
what Is now known as the Union church.
Numbered among tills congregation are
many of the most wealthy and Influential
men of the community and when the people
went to the church on Sunday morning
expecting to be called upon to subscribe to
the building fund it was a surprise to know
that the money was all in the hands of the
committee. A free-will orferlng was taken
which amounted to over $W0.
The pastor. Rev. Charles E. Irfick came
to Grlswold from Fall Klver, Mass. He
was assisted In the dedication services by
Rev. A. C. Henderson of Muscatine, Con
gregationalism and Rev. Thomas A. Ambler
of Hawarden, Presbyterian, formerly pastor
of the Presbyterian church of this city. A
large chorus choir, assisted by an orchestra
accompaniment furnished the music.
The basic principles upon which the
Union church Is founded are as follows:
Article 1 Christ the head of the church.
Article 2 The Bible our rule of faith and
Article Individual Interpretation of the
Scriptures the privilege and duty of all.
