The Commercial club last night unani
mously decided that another of the famous
Council Bluffs street, carnivals shall be
held next autumn, anil alao decided with
equal unanimity that the new system of
pedestal curb street lighting be five-light
electrolier. A substantial evidence of the
sincerity of the men who were willing
again to undergo the 'strain and take the
responsibility for the carnival was given
when they subscribed $2,500 aa a guaranty
to cover a deficiency . that might follow
If a week of bad weather happened to bo
The sudden growth of the , Commercial
club was strikingly exemplified when many
of the new -member answered the call to
attend the meeting,. For the first time
In ten year the crowd was, too large for
the headquarter appartment ot tb club.
Ail of the chairs and . all of the cpaces
where men could aland, were occupied, and
a, number were obliged to go away after
lingering around . the door lor a few mo
menta. The new members showed much
Interest In the public enterprise the club
had under consideration.
1'ark Commissioner Ctraham started the
good feeling by declaring that the park
board would grunt the free use of Baylies
park fur the carnival. Heretofore a charge
of 1100 or more was made to defray the cost
of restoring the park afterward. The pur
poses of the carnival were fully stated.

purposes. II. H. Vaniiruau who ha
helped to majvage several of the enter
prises, said It cost, about $7,000 to hold a
carnival, and that It should have a good
strong organisation back of It. When the
proposition to hold a carnival waa put and
unanimously carried ' a call ' tor subscrip
tions to a guaranty resulted In the raising
the amount stated In a few minutes from
those In the house. . -
The matter of working out the details
will be entrunted to a committee of fif
teen to be appointed by the executive com
mittee of the club.
It required but little dlsjusslon to reacl
the decision that the-new pedestal lights
should be of the five-light variety,' spaced i
at about seventy-five lol apart. When a
motion waa made by Ur. Macrae, declaring
that It be the sense of ' the meeting that

tion that the five-light posts be used on
corners and three-light clusters In the
middle of the. blocks met some approval.

City of Omaha.
Attorney Thomas q. Harrison of Council
Bluffs, co-operating with Judfte Ben .8.
Baker, prepared yesterday the paper In
a suit salnst Charle H. Wlthnell. Omaha
building Inspector, for l'-".0no damage for
an accident allege to be due to the too
hasty performance o? tils duty resulting In
Mrs. Annie Waufle. the plaintiff, being ac
cidentally shot snd dangerously hurt.
The accident occurred on January II last
at the corner of Seventeenth and Jackson
streets, while the building inspector and
his men were removing a lunch wagon
that was there In violation of the fire lim
its ordinance. Mrs. Waufle was asleep In
the wagon at the time, and was partially
upset while being Jerked off the ground by
a team of horses. A heavy Colt's revolver
was knocked down and fired when It struck
the floor, the bullet striking the startled
woman, Inflicting dangerous wounds.
"On November 8. 1B10. Mrs. Waufle' hus
band leased from Leonard Everett of Coun
cil Bluffs lot 8. block 2, Kountze ft Ruth's
addition, for use aa a site for a lunch
wagon and as a place of abode, the couple
making their home In the wagon. On
January 5, 1911, Wlthnell' caused to be
served upon the husband a notice to get
the wagon off the grobnd on or before
The allegation Is that on the morning of
the 12th, at 9:30 o'clock, with the full
knowledge that the wagon was occupied as
a home, Wlthnell's men hitched a team to
it quietly and started to drag It off the
lot across the sidewalk and curbing. A
big sycamore tree was hit and the vehicle
was partially overturned, overthrowing and
smashing a cupboard full of dishes and
knocking down the revolver, a Colt' 38-40.
The bullet struck the woman on the Inner
side of the right groin, passing through
the left leg and hip and entering her right
arm at the elbow. The wounds were of
such a character that the woman's life was
despaired of and the allegation 1 that
she is now a helpless cripple.
The contention Is that the building In
spector had no right to forcibly remove
the wagon until after the expiration of
the day of January 12, and that If he had
not 'done so It would have been removed
voluntarily during that day; that. In fact,
the stuff was packed at 'the time for re
moval and Mrs. Waufle was watting within
the tightly closed vehicle for the return of
her husband who had gone after a team.
It is said that a suit Is also to b Insti
tuted against the city of Omaha. The
papers in the case wll be filed in Omaha
this morning. .
