In answer to the general call for a
nyiss meeting of citizens to perfect an
organization for tho purpose of preparing
tor the expected visit of the Iqwa railway
commissioners for tho purpose of looking
over -the question of a union depot at
Council Bluffs, a large number of clU
sens gathered at the city building, last
night and spent two hours after tho ad
journment of the council meeting discuss
ing tho matter. Former Mayor M. F.
Rohrcr was made chairman and W. IL
Lynchard eocretnry, andthis organisa
tion was later made permanent.
The expressions ot the many speakers
left no doubt of tho unanimity ot sentl

Mayor Maloney said nd' further com

, Chairman Rohrer gave an Interesting
history of th building of the present
union transfer station, beginning the ac
count with tho eyents .that transpired as

be through the Union Pacific, and that

' Alderman Boyor detailed' the experi

Omaha, which had culminated In getting
a tunnel and an adjudication" of the mat
ter that, ho said, would keep It tied Up
for a quarter of a century, He thought
.the situation across the river gave the
chief reason for hoping that a real union
station could now be secured for Council
Bluffs. He believed the Union Pacific
would willingly enter into a general
agreement for such aotallon, and that the
company contemplated now some Impor
tant changes in rotation to the future uu
of tho present union transfer station. He

At the adjourned meeting ot the city
council last night Mayor Maloney sub-
.mltted a message recommending that
somo action be taken at the -present time
providing for the solution ot the Indian
creek overflow problem. He said that
since the west end sewer problem had
been solved the creek problem came up'
as a part of tho whole drainage mattet
and that the two problems should bo as
far as possible worked oiit together. He
recommendod that a special committee ot
the council be appointed or that tho coun
cil as a committee to report back to the
council at an early date concerning

ment of the creek. The recommendation
was concurred in and the mayor was au
thorized to appoint a committeo of threa
with himself as chairman. Ho reserved
the right to select the members later.
' In discussing tha matter the mayor said
he believed that 300,000 or 3100,000 could be
raised outside ot w.hat might be raised
by direct taxation to pay for whatever
might be decided as the best plan. .The
matter wl bo presented at the next meet

Mayor Maloney, to whom was referred

officials of the principal Iowa cities and
had found that weed notices had been
given to property owners mostly by pub
lication and that where city employes did
tha work the sum -or 12.50 a day was
allowed. He recommended that each ot
tho young men be allowed pay for ten
days, or its, in full payment, and the
council unanimously concurred.
Alderman Boyer withdrew his -motion

' Gatue Birds Dying.
The state is in danger of complete fail
ure of a costly experiment at raising
Pheasants for distribution to all parti
of Iowa through the error of .buying
somo birds to put with those raised. A

cbaaed in Illinois some tlmo ago and
placedwlth tho nearly thousand young
birds raised on the state game farm
which is on a part ot tho state fall
