The grading will tie completed and the
foundation ready far the concrete, by this
evening or tomorrow. Brick pre being
hauled for resurfacing Willow avenue on
the south fide of Rayllss perk. Only the
most Improbable weather conditions will
prevent tho early completion of these two
Hough estimates of the amount of work
clone on the streets during the last sea
son. Including paving, sowers, curbing,
sidewalks, etc., and that done by the
street rnllway, telephone, gas and elec
trlo companies and the water board will
approximate fully $:00,000. This estimate
does not take Into account the ptrmanen;
Improvements In the way of building en
terprises, which 'will aggregate a large
aum, showing the greatest number of
dwellings and comfortable cottages for
homes that havo followed the building
activities In any year.
The purpose of the city administration
to push the street paving to the extent
of about 00,009 euch year until all of the
principal streets are paved has been much
more than realized. The estimates of
permanent street improvements exceed
The work done by the street railway
company In the extension of Its lines
and the rebuilding of the doublo tracks
on Broadway has caused a cash outlay
of more than $100,000, a large portion of
which lias gone for the payment of la
bor. Improves Lighting- System.
The citizens' Gas and ICIectrlc company
had expended about .VO,00 on the streets
In providing extensions of gas mains and
olectrio light lines and the installation of
the new flaming arc lights and under
grounding of its lines In the business
sections of the city. In addition to this,
about $15,000 has been expended In other
directions for the betterment of the serv;
The telephone company has paid one
kill of .$18,000 for cable, conduits and tabor
la connection with the consolidation of
the two plants, and the total cost of the
work done on 'the streets wilt ' be very
snuch In excess of $1:0,000. The work re
quired ( the rebuilding o many manholes,
fend the construction of several new ones
With expenBlvo side lines. The removal
t oner blt polo at the corner of Broad
way and TJorth Eighth street "entailed an
expense of 1600. The cost of the new
wltchboard and Its Installation Is about
1,000, 'and the' ironWacV frrloe of-the1, new'
building, without furnishings, is approxi
mately $15,000,, making a total expenditure
by the company during the. , season, of
$55,000. A large part of this money has
also gone for the payment of labor,
i .. ,.w '.Wafer Mains. .
When Xtia water Gomnilauiuners conclude
the work now under way the expenditure
will approximate $80,000. This Includes the
one mile of twelve-Inch pipe on South
Main street, the Installation of a large
number of steamer fire hydrants on that
street and Broadway, and the lateral pipe
connections, tying the big main with the
six-Inch mains on adjoining streets, and
the extensions on other streets, adding
more than two miles and making an
actual total of three and one-half mile
of twelve, eight and six-Inch mains. It
also Includes the new reservoir at the
Thirty-seventh street station, which will
cost $45,000, the electrification of that plant
and Its installation in a $3,500 fireproof
structure; the new $10,000 boiler house and
Installation of the new 8,000,000 gallon
pump, amounting to $25,000, and the other
improvements that have been made of a
general character; - - -
Thla leaves untouched a balance of more
than $50,000 cash on . hand realized from
the sale of tho $600,000 bond Issue, s after
paying for tho plant itself. It also leaves
available all of the profit from an Income'
of at least $'J2,0U0 which will be received
from water consumers during the year
The first report of the commissioners
will show soma agreeable surprises con
cerning the profits from the operation of
the plant. Commissioner Jensen said yes.
terday that more than ten miles of water
main extensions would be made In 1012,
that will give first class water service to
sections of the city bo long in need of the
relief. Nothing less than six-Inch mains
will be laid. , ' .'
Those figures show that Council Bluffs
has enjoyed u very prosperous year lh

November 1. The settlement Included the
checking of Ills accounts for the last two
quarters of the year, or from Juno to

Mr. Buriltt's expenditures had been In
excess of his receipts to the amount of
$151. 3. and that amount was due him. He
had vouchers for all of his expenditures.

the amount named and finally, terminated
all of his responsibilities to the county.
Mr. Barrett had previously refunded to
the county about $i."i0 arising from errors
In bookkeeping covering a period of three
years, and which showed in the final

J. B. Fulton of Huron. S. D.. arrived
In the city yesterday for a conference
with Attorney Clem F. Kimball, prepara
tory to the Issuance of patents that have
been allowed upon his new cutting de
vice for repairing and mowing machines
and which many Implement dealers have
pronounced to be of a revolutionary
character. It doubles the rutting power
of a machine while reducing the power
required to (Vive it. It was tried out
during tho summer and autumn upon the
tough and wiry grass ol tne bouiii ia
kota prairies, which reslstrd the attacks
of common mowing machines, except
when the horses pulling the muchlne
were being driven to their limit of (.peed.
The Fulton machine, driven at the slow
est rate possible by non-energiied mules,
sheared off the tough grass us If clipped
by a raror. Mr. Fulton is negotiating
with several big factories, but is inclined
to accept proffers made by a new fac
tory that Is being established at Sioux
P'alls, backed by the Commercial club of
the place. Mr. Fulton expected to reach
here in time to exhibit his dev.ee at the
annual meeting of the Nebraska and
Iowa Retail Implement Dealers' associa
tion at Omaha, but got the dates a little
mixed. He will go to Atlantic Monday
to visit his mother. Mr. Fulton was for

Resigns His Place
A painful surprise was given tbe direc

there provide rich material for tho asso

Is well prepared to carry forward. A new

nected with the Council Bluffs association
for the last three years, the greater rart
of the time In closest contact with the
members as physical director, and later,
as general secretary. In both he was
larger than his position, with the result
that he greatly advanced the work by
arousing the genuine Interest of all the
Mr. Plerson's resignation was ncrrpted
with sincere regret. Nothing tins been
done toward flllln his place, but the
directors realise that it is a large task,
