A PKACTIOAL. PLAN.
The Proposed Organization of n
Younsr Men's Clirlstmn As-
Ono day last week tlio general secretary -
rotary of tlio Young Men's Christian
Association nan iu thin city canvass
ing thu miittor of starting n branch of
the association here. Ho found the
Rontiinont of many ntrongly in favor
of such an organi/.ation , mid received
much oncotiragoniont. Tlio probabil
ity is tliat fltups will aoon bo taken for
the perfection of the plan , and putting
the work into practical form. Thcro
was Boino time no an organization
hure , but it conllnud its work mainly
to running a ruadini ; room , and uvou
then noon c.-xmu to an end.
It in the intention of those who aru
now takini ; an iiuurcnt in thu muttur
to orgahi/.o for work iilun a number
of lines. Thu association in Uinalui
has by its success inspired now faith
iu the enterprise , and i oporto from
cities dhows that pructicil atidHUCcumi-
ful work can bo do no in the way of
looking out for youn men
It is proposed not only to hold ru-
ligious services , hut to have rooms
wlicro young men can opund tlioir
leisure time profiUihly and pleasantly ;
to open an employment bureau , and
to BOO that young men coming to. the
city us strangers ahull bo provided
with pleasant nnd suitably boarding
place ; to help young in finding ac
quaintances , and in fact to hulp them
in business and society as well us in
It is thought the previous fiulurcs
have hoon caused by not having the
work syntonmtiKud and made practical ,
and that by following tlm plan adopted
elsewhere it may be mudii u great suc
cess and rendered helpful to many.
Among the lines otvork will be
the providing of enturtaiiinienta , lec
tures , etc. , of n healthful and pleas
ing nature , and perhaps u gymnasium
can bo added to the attractions.
Theru aru many yniii ynu r. in every
city of this size who iu .lai.sient and
who would gladly improve some such
opportunities for wluling away an
evening. Tlioro are ninny , too , who
have no homes horc , nnd who would
help support nil institution of this
nature , provided it was properly man
aged and had practical features to it.
Tl\o workers who have already become
interested in this project should push
it along to successful operation.
THE GOVERNMENT BUILDING.
The Prospects for a Now Ono In This
The latest in regard to the prospects
of a new government building in
Council Bluffs is the following from a
letter from Congressman. Ilepburn to
Col. Koatley :
"On the 7th inst. the committee on
public buildings and grounds repotted
to the IIOUHO the bill providing lov thu
purchase of u site aim thu erection of
a government building in your city ,
with a recommendation that it do
pass. I cannot give you any definite
idea as to when the house will con
sider it , but hope to get it up within
a month. It is on. thu house calendar ,
and in such a positioy us to induce mete
to hope that within u month , in tlio
ordinary course of business , it will
como up. I will he very glad indeed
if a good delegation will como on and
help in its passage. "

SMUGGLING A BILL.
Sensation in the Iowa House The
hnilrond Committee Clerk Forges -
os a Report.
Correspondent St. Piuil Plonotr Prcsa.
Quito n netmation was created in the
house Thursday morning when Mr.
Irwin of Leo nruao lo u question of
pi iviluRO , and stated that there was
good reason to believe that n bill before
fore the house hud been tampered
with , to-wit : Senate file 78 , which
came into the IIOIIFO on'Friday , and
reported to the home as from the
committee on r.inroiids Saturday with
the reconnnondution that the bill do
pass. As lie u'.is a member of that
committee und had no knowledge of
action on thu bill , ho desired an in-
voiti ation. ' 1'his called up Mr. El-
oriukj acting chairman of the com
mittee in the ubienco of Mr. Wolfe ,
who stated that Saturday moriiiiiL !
Charles McClurc , clerk of the
railroad committee , gave him
several bills , to report to the
house , nmong which was senate file
78. As ho was opposed to this bill ,
und seeing it indorsed by the commit
tee report , signed Wolfe as chairman ,
and as ho did not know how and
when it had been considered in com
mittee , ho ask d McClure about it ,
und McClure replied it wus all right ;
that the committee had acted upon it ,
and thu report w.iscorrect. Ho thoro-
fotu sent the bill to the clerk of thu
house , whore it was read. Snveral
members of the committee noticed it
was a bill thuy knew nothing of. Mr.
Elttrick , on going to several of the
committee to got their signatwe to a
minority report against , learud that
nonu of the committco hud any knowl
edge of thu bill. Thu speaker ap
pointed a apeciul committee for in
vestigation. Mr. Wolfe returned
Wednesday and denied having signed
any such report , and said the report
and signature was a forgery. The bill
is very short , and was prepared by
Judge Tracy , president of the Bur
lington , Cedar llapids A Northern
railroad , and it is understood practi
cally is only in the interest of his
road. It passed the sunato without
hesitation. No one supposes' that
Judge Tracy had any knowledge
who lever of McCluro'a doings. Me
Cluro is a young man from Cedar
county , who , in some way , secured
the clerkship of this committee
against the earnest protest of mem
bers ot the house ho knew him. Ho
does not bear a very good reputation
at least about the capital. Ho has
served on committees before , and
proved himself decidedly crooked.
Several members of the house were
made victims of his dead beat pen
chant for borrowing money at the
Chicago convention in 1880. The
general impression is he committed
this forgery out of pure cusaodness ,
expecting to squeeze some reward out
of the railroad company hereafter.
What his motive was , and what it
was done for , ia what the committee
propose to find out. The following is
a copy of the bill :
lie it enacto I by the general assembly of
the state of Iowa :
Section 1. That section 10(51 ( , title
X , chapter 1 , of the code of 1873 , in
elation to corporations for pecuniary
> rotits , be amended by inserting in
ho fourth line thereof , after the word
'companies , " the words "and the con
struction and equipment bonds issued
Dr guaranteed by railroad companies. "
Said section , as amende'd , will then
ead as follows :
"Sec. 10(51. ( Such articles of incor
poration must fix the highest amount
if indebtedness or liability to which
laid corporation is at any one time to
bo subject , which must in ho case , ex
cept iu that of risks of insurance com
panies , and the construction or equip
ment bonds issued or guaranteed by
railway companies , exceed two-thirds
of its capital stock , "
Sec. 2. This act , being deemed of
mmodiato importance , shall be in
'orco from and after its publication.
