Attorney George S. Wright Makes An

COMES DURING FIGHT AT HEARING

, ferler was thrown on; yesterday after
noon during one. of the heated periods of
controversy that have marked the proceed
ings of the waterworks condemnation court,
amounting to a tentative proposition to
sciept J7X.0O0 for tho Council Bluffs water
flcnt an It ptanrts today and thus end the
pfn.ilng expensive litigation.
The air of the court room was charged
with the emanations from disturbed and
often angry minds, snd the proposition,
cautiously made by George fi. Wright, who
has always been the confidential legal ad
viser of the water company fell on unheed
ing ears. Not tha least particle of attention
wao paid to It.
The proposition cams during the course
of a long and wearisome wrangle over the
admission of evidence of cost of the plant
of an original note book kept by Engineer
Harry Rlrkenbtne, who drafted the plans
of the water system and supervised their
execution. This' evidence was of precisely
the same character as that which had been
objected to by the city's legal advisers
when the water 'company's lawyers at
tempted to show by Engineer Blrkenblne
the contents of the original contract be
tween the water company and the Ameri
can Construction company, the attorneys
for the water company claiming that this
contract had been lost. It was being strenu
ously objected to by Attorney Kimball and
Tir.ley for the city, when Attorney Wright
made the potent remarks.
Made In flood Faith.
Later asked If the proposition was made
In good faith. Mr. Wright said:
"Of course It was."
"Have you any authority to make such
an offer?" was asked.
"I have authority to say that we will
consider a proposition to take r00,000 for
the plant," replied Mr. Wright.
The report that such an offer was made
spread quickly about the town and called
out many favorable expressions. Indicating
that It would be a wise thing to do. The
condemnation court Is coating about MOO
a day and the lowest estimate that tha
city has placed upon the bill of costs tha
taxpayers will have to pay is $10,000. Then
months may elapse before the matter is
definitely settled and the plant finally
turned over to the city.' In the meantime
the same paralysing conditions will pre
vail and will grow worse dally. Ona busi
ness man, who refused permission to use
his name, said It would ba to the city's
best Interest to accept such a proposition
and get action on the work of reconstruc
tion of the plant at once. "My insurance
Is costing me ' $100,000 mora than It did
five years ago," he said, "and I want to
see this nightmare dissipated at once. I be
lieve the acceptance of such an offer will
save the city $o0,000." . . )
Blrkenblne on Stand.
Engineer Blrkenblne was on tha stand all
day yesterday and during the afternoon
was called upon to show by his private
booka and penciled data the original cost
of the water plant up to the time he left

and it was this data that counsel for the
city objected to. His penciled record,
which he swore were made at tha tima tha
work was done, showed that the total cost
of tha plant up to 1890 was $344,941.11. This
Included tha expenditure of the money
realised for the $150,000 second mortgage
bond Issue made In ISM that was actually
expended upon the betterment of tha plant,
approximating about $50,000 and Included
