Men Who Will Ilecoine)
A business deal that means much to
Council Uluffs nnd western Iowa has
been brought about. Tho Iowa Telephone
company, tho Roll organization that owns
or controls nil of the telephone exchanges
of tho state, with the exception of tho
Nebraska organization In Potlawattainlo
county, has determined upon a new pol
icy of business management Hnd has dis
tricted the state Into tho western Iowa
central Iowa and eastern Iowa districts.
It has chosen Council Bluffs us the head
quarters of tho western district. Tho tel
ephone exchange building on South Main
street, formerly used as the tcntral sta
tion pf the Independent Tolophone com
pany, has been leased and wuo formally
taken possession of ycRtcrdny.
The new arrangement concentrates all
of tho managerial business of the Iowa
company in tho western part of the state
at Council Bluffs and will bring r num
ber of high-salaried omployca hero with
Tho Iowa company has reorganised Its
business along the same linos that have
been successfully followed by the Ne
braska Telephone company,
Tho western Iowa district will comprise
Sioux City, tho largest exchange In the
northwestern port of the state, and Re4
Oak, the largest In tho southwestern.
It will also Include all of tho Bell ex
changes In the western third ot the state,
with the slnglo exception cf Council
Illuffs and Pottawattamlo county. This
territory belongs to tho Nebraska com
pany and will not bo Inlerfercd with.
The wholo general supervision of the
district will be placed In '.he hands of
tho district manager located at Council
The cholco of a manager lay between
a Council Bluffs man connected with the
Nebraska company and a Eloux City
man. It Is said that the Bell company
was reluctant to give up Its Council
Bluffs young man, who has mado good,
and the Iowa company chose the Sioux
City man, who had the advantage ot age,
experience and long connection with tho
company, HIb nomo was nit dlsolosed
last evening and may not be urtll he ar
rives here about Saturday to take charge
of tho business.
It Is now known that the refusal of
the Nebraska Telephone company to sell
the Main street building to the Commer
cial club at the price offered was duo to
the changes then contemplates by which
a permanent leaso could be made to the
Iowa Telephone company.
Grand Jury Reports
Indictments and Quits
Tho grand Jury made Us final report
for the March term of district court yes
terday afternoon and wns discharged.
Five Indictments were returned, throe of
which were mode public
All of the men. Indicted are now in the
county Jail. Frank Miller, alias Malo
vltch, was Indicted for robbing the Clark
Mercantile company, 3403 West Broad
way, on the night of April SO. Goods to
the amount of about $250 were taken and
about $1C0 worth later found In the pos
session of (Malovltch In Omaha, where hs
was trying to sell them.
J. A. Smythe, an Omaha man, was in
dicted for uttering a forged Instrument
April 16 he started in to unload a num
ber of forged checks to which he had at
tached the name of the Z. T. Jones
Transfer company. Each one was for $10
and purported to b endorsed by J. Will
lams of 60S Washington avenue.
Charles Hansen, one of tho tornado vlc
tlms, whoso head seemed to have been,
turned by his experiences In the storm,
was Indicted for malicious threats to ex
tort. April 6 he threatened Charles
Deltchler with arrest upon tho charge of
theft unless he paid $26 as a bribe. Ho
also posed as a deputy United States
marshal and has been held for foderal
court Indictment upon that chargo also.
It appeared that Hansen discovered
Deltchler removing a refrigerator from
the premises ot Mrs. Nunas and con
ceived the idea that he had no right to
do so and seized upon the incident as a
pretext to extort money. Mrs. Nunas
had employed Deltohlor to take away tho
refrigerator and so testified before the
Kty to the Situation Bee Advertising.
