Motor Company Uetn All It Wnntn
from the Pnbllc.
Although tho city council remained in
session less than half an hour lust night
It found time to tnko dellntto action look
ing to a determination of the controversy
over Main street between tho city and the
motor company. It did Just what tho
motor company was desirous It should do,
ordered thu laying of thu second track on
that thoroughfare stopped and directed tho
city solicitor to take tho necessary steps
to have tho courts determine tho matter.
As soon as tho bills for tho preceding
month bad been reud and allowed Alderman
Rubor sprang three motions, typewritten
copies of which ho held la his hand. His
first was: "That tho city marshal be and
he Is hereby Instructed to notify tho Omaha
A Council Bluffs Hallway and Uridgo com
pany and the Omaha, Council Bluffs A
Suburban Hallway company to cease tho
construction of any additional street rail
way tracks In or upon Main streot and to
refrain from tearing up any paving on said
streot for tho purpose of such construc
tion." This was carried unanimously and then
tho alderman from the First ward submit
ted his Bccond, which was that: "Tho
city marshal bo and ho Is hereby In
structed to prevent the Omaha A Council
Bluffs Hallway hnd Bridge company and
tho Omaha, Council Bluffs and Suburban
Hallway company or any other person or
corporation from lnylug any street railway
track In or upon any portion of Main street
or from tearing up and removing any of
tho paving upon said street."
This also carried without a dissenting
vote and emboldsaed by hla succesa AHer
man Ruber thorn sprang hit third motion.
It was: "That tho city attorney be and
ho is horeby Instructed to take tho neces
sary action or proceeding propor for de
termining or testing tho authority of tho
Omaha A Council Bluffs Hallway and Brldgo
company and tbo Omaha, Council Bluffs
and Suburban Hallway company, or elthor
of them to occupy Main street and Pearl
street with Its street railway tracks and
to take tho necessary nctlon or proceeding
to provont tho further construction of
street railway tracks by either of said
railway companies In or upon cither of
Bafd streets and of tcarlug up of tho pav
Alderman Lou gee did not npprovo of this
and recorded his voto In tho negative, but
his was tho only opposition to tbo motion.
The program, which was evidently cut and
dried, having been carried out, the coun
cil adjourned to Thursday night after hav
ing been In session less time than It
usually takes to read tho minutes of tho
Kanager Dlmmock, when seen nftcr tho
"It Is exactly what we wanted tho coun
cil to do. Now that It has declared Itself
wo Bhall know how to proceed. We will
continue tho work tomorrowbut will ccaso
as soon as notified by tho city marshal.
Then tho aldormen will learn a thing or
two which they don't seem to know at
present. We havo something up our sleovo
that will surprise them when wo spring It.
Wo maintain wo havo tho right to lay n
second track on Main street and wo will
lay It. Whatever wo will do will bo abovo
bonrd and thero will be no laying of track
at night time or any attempt on our part
to steal a march upon the council. It
may bo possible that the matter will havo
to be determined by tho courts, but as to
that I cannot say at this time. As soon
as tho city marshal orders tho work
stopped then our next action will depend
upon tho courso that tho company's law
yers will dccldo upon. Our only reason
for expending $12,000 upon a second
track on Main Btreet Is to Improve our
servlco to the lake next spring and not
for tho purposo of securing any supposed
uddltlonal rights upon that street."

Weaver of tho republican commlttco went
to his home In Wapello to vote and most of
tho other leaders hero followed suit, all of
them returning as soon ns they voto to

republicanism and tho slzo of the plurality
Is tho only thing considered. Chairman
Weaver issued n statement before ho left

The republicans are fully awake to the
efforts that will probably be mudu to hinder
republicans from voting In certalnpreclncts
in tho Second and Sixth congressional dis

commltteo rocently Issued order to tho
democratic workers In those districts to
fcrm vlgllanco committees und urrest re

Theso orders had Bpeclal reference to the

prlvnto clrculur was secured our friend J
wero notllled and they are ready to resf.nt
any attempt by tho democrats to prevnt
a fair election nnywhero In Iowa. Clialr

Thero Is absolutely no question Hint the
republicans will carry every congressional
district In Iowa nnd tho claim made by
Chnlrmnn Huffman on tho eve of elctlon
that the Brynnltes will elect congressmen
in the First, Second. Sixth nnd Eighth dis

Chairman Huffman of the democratic
committee issued n statement tonight n
follows: "Tho ropubllcnns will not have
to exceed 20,000 plurality in Iowa. The re
publican voto of 1S9U will be cut fully
10,000 and tho democrats will poll n much
larger vote. The republican majority will
consequently bo greatly reduced. Tho
election of two congressmen Is certain.
