John Hummer, ortt ot the real pioneers
andj builders of Council Bluffs, died
Monday afternoon at the home of his
daughter, Mrs. Edward Schlcketanz, 140
lierfton street, ot the Infirmities ot ex
treme old age. He celebrated his eighty
ninth birthday anniversary on October
S. .He had been a 'continuous resident ot
Council Bluffs' since the spring; ot 1S55.
Mr1. Hammer Was born In Germany, on
theRhlne on October 3, 1S21. He came
to the western world With his parents
when he was 6 years old. They tarried
a while in eastern New York, but when
l.e was- still K very small boy they went
to Lorraine county, Ohio, near the town
of Elyria, where he crew to young man
hood, and where he won as his bride
Wary J, Packer when she was IS yearj
old.. After two of their children were
born there the young husband came
west and selected Council Bluffs as the
cite, of his futuro activities.
Bolide Xjor House.
He built a. Uttlo log house, on 8 tuts
Iran street and housed hjs family- In It,
when he returned to Ohio two years
later and brought them here. In this
house the third child,' Mrs. Clara
Schlcketanz, was born.
Mr. Hammer was 'a builder by nature
andV about his first work here was to
begin the manufacture of brick. He
used the first brick burned to construct
or hts family what was then one of
the - finest residences In the town, and
which stlli stands as a comfortable home
at rS00 Harmony street. A fow years
later he graded away a high hill on
thaif opposite- corner of Harmony and
Benton streets' and built the brick house
In which he died "and In-Which he lived
during all ot the remainder ot his life.
Ilia brickyards dominated tho building
material market and he becamo and re
mained for many years almost the ex
clusive builder of brick structures In the
town. No other man who hnH lived In the
city - could point to as many substantial
buildings as his monuments. Nearly all
ot the old store buildings in the town
were built by him and many, of them,are
still standing as tho substantial business
blocks, of modern times.
Builds Ogden Honse,
He Hover sought to hoard the large
amounts of money he made. Ho built the
first Ogden house entirely front his own
resources at a cost of nearly $330,000, and
made it the finest hotel west of Chicago
at that' time. The esteen In whloh he was
held was evidenced at the opening of the
hotel, when a splendid banquet was given
At the tables sat governors ot several
stateajln addition to Iowa and Nebraska,
which was then a territory, and othor
men who afterwords became prominent In
the nation's history.. When It was dis
covered that thebuilder of'the hotel was
not present a. committee of citizens was.
appointed to 'fetch .him." Tie was carried
into ttfe big dining room on the shoulders
ot the-men and seated at the head of the
banquet tables. When the hotel was de
etroyed by fire in 1874 the loss was total.
Through the negligence of the Insurance
agents ' to whom had been entrusted the
duty of placing tho policies, tho entire
amount of Insurance elapsed Juit three
days before the fire. It was a heavy
blow, but Mr. Hammer started at once
to rebuild. With a little aid he completed
the present hotel building, much Inferior
to the first, at a cost of JIJS.OOO,
' Bnllt Many Structures.
Among the other largo buildings con
structed by him as a contractor were
the old, City Mills on tho corner of
Bryant street and Washington avenue;
make way for the present building; the
old high school on the hill; the old Pa
cific house; the . Crystal Mills on South
Main street; the Shugart-Beno block;
the Kyerett block; the Officer & Posey
bank building and all of the other build
Ings between It and the old Pacific
house. Including the Do Vol buildings;
the John Bennett block; the Clark build
Ing on the corner ot Broadway and
South Main street and the First Na
tional bank building on the opposite sldo
of the street, and many smaller business
buildings, In addltlpn to scores ot private
In those days he was the only builder
ot brick structures In the town and for
years did all that -was done. Among nil
small army of workers were "Uncle
Jimmy" Wlckham and Owen P. Wick-
ham, both ot whom began In he humble
capacity of hod carriers and mortar
mixers. They learned the building trade
with him and always received nil ot the
help and encouragement he could give
them. Chris Straub was alio a worker
In his employ during those active times
and thus gained the knowledge that
afterwards helped to make him wealthy.
Two daughters, Mrs. Majme Gray ot
Kansas City, and Mrs. Clara Schlcketans
of this city, survive their father. Both
were at the bedside yesterday. Mrs.
Hammer died at the Benton street resi
dence In 1SJJ. Lewis Hammer, the welt
known local capitalist. Is the only sur
viving brother. The funeral will prob
ably bo held at 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning at the Benton street residence.
Burial will be In the family lot In Fair-
for Creek Change
At the meeting of the Ileal Kstate
exchange yesterday City Solicitor Stuart
made a lengtqy written report embody.
Ing all of the proposed plans for the
Improvement ot Indian creek and point
ing out the various methods permissible
under the present state laws for raising
the money to pay the -large bill ot costs.
He outlined the plans ot Benecette Wil
liams submitted In 1SS3, when that noted
engineer came here and devised tho
general Bewer plan for the dty which
Is now being carried out.
Tho Williams' scheme was based upon
the primary necessity ot diverting tho
water carried by the creek at some point
to prevent disastrous 'overflows In ex
cesslve storm periods. One was a tun
nel through the bills at the city limits
near the Krettek place, which would
divert the floods collected upon neatly
ten square miles ot drainage area outside
the city and carry it to the ' Missouri
river via Big lake. The other plan was
a closed tunnel ot large dimensions
starting -at North Main street and open
ing Into tho Big lake outfall. Williams
favored the tunnel at the city limits
and estimated the coat at that time to
Present day methods ot tunneling have
cut down this cost to considerably' less
than $100,000, according to figures secured
bp. Mayor Moloney. This plan Involves
tho construction ' of a dam at the city
limits and tunnel through the highest
point of the hills, which wouid be con
siderably less than a ' mite,. To secure
tho money to. do this City.. Attorney
Stuart pointed out the state law that
permitted the levying of a general tax
covering a series of, years.
Tho solicitor's report also covered the
cost and tho methods of raising money
to pay for the construction of a closed
sewer for the portion of the creek run
ning through the central part of the city.
Ho pointed out that It could be done
under the main sewer tax law enacted by
tho last, legislature and also, under the
drainage law of several years ago and
the costs principally assessed to the ben
efited property. If the tunnel plan
should be followed the creek channel
would only have to provide passageway
for the storm water collected on an area
of three square miles, while the tunnel
would take care of the rainfall on ten
square miles of surface. vNo action, was
taken by the exchange.

FIND MONEY IN GROUND
Vague suspicions that the old bridge
over Indian creek on North -Main street
may have afforded a place ot .conceal
ment for robbers' loot was entertained
yesterday when workmen engaged In ex
cavating where the old bridge had stood
uncovered a number of silver coins. They
were dimes, .quarters and half dollars,
and had evidently slipped out from a
point half up the bank on the north side,
directly underneath the old bridge. There
would have been no possibility of the
money having been lost by persons pass
lng over the bridge, as It was not scat
tered. Suspicions were further strength
ened when the diggers found a piece ot
fuse, such as burglars use, lying near tho
point where the money was found. Tha
workmen found 3 In silver after the first
coin was thrown up. Interest In their
work became Intensified and, the further
excavations were conducted with great
