/ * The police were yesterday called ou vo
hunt up a stray little three-year-old , n
grand child of N. F. Story , the master
mechanic of the Chicago & Hock Island.
The child was missed about 11 o'clock In
tbe forenoon , and was still missing at G
( , ' ' o'clock in the evening. Tbe mother Is
I Mrs. V/ickwIro , of Omaha , who with the
t L t r ' child are visiting here.
The city council haying had its atten
tion called to the fact that saloons wlthitr
two miles of the city llmita are subject to
the sasae llcenje as though located within
the city , has instructed the marshal to
notify such keepers to call at the Captain's
office and eottlo. As no such demand has
over been made on them before , a protest
may be expected.

Chapman , J. J. Fratnoy , Ed. Hughes ,
Albert Nonck , Ira Hendrlok , Charlie Stir-

day to see McCulloufth In "The Gladla-
tor. " They were highly pleased , but the
pleasure of tha evening was badly jarred
ty their trhls and tribulations In securing
a passage homo. Instead of finding n spe
cial train as expected , they were Informed
by thoTJ. P. agent that there was no way
; to get back to Council Bluffs except to
| swim , After a time they induced him to
let the dummy take them across the
fridge for 810. In their anxiety to get
homo they came down with the mwbuck
and secured passage. On the dummy
i train they learned that if they Imvo been
sharp enough to have w.vlted a little longer
they could have got over ou a freight
train. When the foot and wagon bridge
is built , there will be an end to these an
noyances and extortions , and one can ride
ocwalk to suit hlspurao nnd suit hla time.
By all means hurry up with the wagon
bridge.

TAXING RAILWAYS ,
They Are Not Bearing Theii
Share of ttio Burdens
of the City ,
Some Interesting Fnots nnd Fig
ntoi for Tax Pavers to
Think Over *
TUB BUB IIRS already called public
attention to the irregularities arising
from the present mode of assessing
railways. Under the code of the state
the executive council estimates the
number of miloa which any railway
has in the state , and the total value
of the same , together with nil im
provements and equipments used in
operating the road , and then strikes
an average or how much a inilo it is io
bo valued at in possessing. It certifies
to each county the number of miles to
each road in that county and the value
per mile , and the county board in
turn certifies to each town the length
and value of the roads in that town-
ship. As a result of this procedure a
milo of the Chicago , Ilock Island &
Pacific railway is valued at § 12,700 ,
whether it is on the prairie , without
a bridge , culvert or ling station , or
whether it is in the heart of Council
Blufla , with depots , warehouse's ' , side >
tracks nnd hotel. As a result of thi
mode of assessing some strange in
consistencies nro apparent. The tola
valuation of the railway property in
this county is figured at § 014,580
and although this city pays three
fifths of all the taxes rnisod in the
county , yet it is allowed a valuatior
on the railway property within its
limits of only § 14 ,795.
The property of the Chicago , Rock
Island & Pacific in this county is
valued at § 324,712 , yet the valuation
of its property in this city is valued at
only 870,200. What property the
same road has in Garner t < / < vnship is
valued at $85,000 ; in Norwalk town
ship , $87,122 , and in Minden town
hip it is valued at just as high a
figure as all the property it owns in
this city.
The Chicago & Northwestern rail
way is another instance. Its property
in the county , outside of its city
property , is valued at § 188,417 , and
in this city at only $31,725. In
Crescent township alone its property
is valued at moro than twice as much
as all its property in this city.
Other figures of like import could
bo given concerning other roads it this
city. To make the facts moro aggra
vating , the railways own much prop
erty hero which is nominally used in
operating the roads. It is stated that
thcro are a number of lota across ,
perhaps , ono corner of which runs a
side track or a rusty switch ,
ind the whole lot is thus
elaimed as being a part of the
jporating property of the road , when
in fact it is rented out to some private
Jarty for building purposes. The city
; ouncil is looking after some of these
ots and after some other property
; laimed to bo a part of the railway
jroper , and not subject to regular as
icBsmont.
There is , for instance , the now ole
rater , which cost from § 200,000 to
$300,000 $ , and which is claimed as ox-
smpt from taxation because built by a
> eel of all'the ' railways. It has been
luggested by some who have invest- !
; attid the matter that the city should
irocood to assess and tax such railway
iroporty as is being used for other
han strictly operating purposns , and
o proceed as on other property and
ot the railways do the fighting.
TTJRNING.THE TABLES-
IherllT Gulttur Is Blmsolf Arrested
While Serving Papers
Upon Others.
Sheriff Quittar hdd a little trip out
nto the country yesterday for the
mrposo of serving papers as a part of
lia official duties , Having stopped at
Uoca and done what ho had to dele
lo there ho pushed on to Walnut.
ioon alter his arrival ho mot a friend ,
md ia conversation with him stated
hat ho had just come from Avoca.
Cho words had barely passed his lips
yhon thn marshal , not knowing who
io was , stopped up to him nnd or-
estod him. The marshal said that
iValnut was quarantined against
Ivoca , and ho has orders to arrest all
t-angors hailing from there. The
iherilT , without raukinghimsolf known ,
[ uiotly submitted , and the marshal
narchod him before the mayor and
presented his caso. The ahorill' urged
; hat witnesses bo sent for from
Ivoca , and got the ofllcials into quito
k puzzled state of mind. They did
lot want to send an olllcor into Avoca
md bring witnesses from there lest
hey might thus import the small pox ,
ind Huch a course would break down
ho quarantine restrictions. At the
aino time it was a hardship to
coop a man under arrest until the
luarantino was raised , especially as
ho prisoner declined to furnish bonds.
L'ho man was entitled to witnesses ,
> ut to got thorn was as much of an
iflenso as that which ho wao alleged
o have committed , After trying to
olvo the puzzle they concluded to let
ho accused go , on his statement that
jo was not a resident of Avoca , but
lad only stopped off there on business.
Chen the sheriff made himsoU known ,
ind the farce ended in smoke.
There has been some bitterness
iprung up between the residents of
bValnut and Avoca , because of
ho quarantine restrictions. Those
Jving at Avoca fpol sore that such an
nsinuation should bo made so pub-
icly , nnd such a wide spread notice
ihould bo made of their having lied a
o\v cases of small pox. Some of the
ntizens of Walnut foolishly charge
; hat florae of the Avoci folks would
ladly import a caao of small ppx into
; heir yjllago if possible. So the war
{ oca oil. ThoBhoritfaimply foil n vie ,
na to thia feeling ,
IIol For an Opera Houao
The talk of building an opera house
wo is still kept up , in the hope that
t will ripen into 'action , Th'osug- '
irectcd for $30,000 or $40,000. Such
. V _ _ . _ \ . tmM ± L * . a
a suggestion is sheer rfonscnso. A
"building" can , perhaps , bo put up
for that amount , but it would bo vorj
foolish to think thnt nny sncli
amount would provide for at
"opera houso' ' worthy of the name.
The only danger of the present situa
tion is that nemo such small or cheap
building will bo put up. If no , it
will have a tendency to prevent this
city from havinjt for many years , at
least , and perhaps prevent forever ,
such a building as this city should
have as an amusement center. Coun
cil BlufTa is growing , and is bound to
grow , and if an opera house is built ,
it should be ono which will not
only meet the present ncds , but will
meet the needs of twenty ycais hence.
The opera house in Omaha cost up
wards of § 100,000. This city should
have as fine an opera house as Omaha ,
and it can have ono , if the citizens
will show n little pluck and enterprise.
It will bo a detriment to sccuro only
n building of but ordinary size and
attainment , as it will eorvo as a dog in
the manger when any attempt is made
in the future to build ono moro suit
able to the needs of the city. Let
the push bo rn.-ulo for a largo , hand
some structure , which will merit the
attention of the whole country.
THE BOARD OF TRADE.
to OHlcors and Members and What
They are Doing and Can Do.
The board of trade of Council Blufia
is a comparatively younjt organization ,
having been started just prior to Jan
uary 1 , 1881. Its work has been not
so much of a commercial nature a ? of
a general utility order. Various mat
ters of concern to the city as a whole ,
rather than to the board of trade as n
body , have been brought up from
time to time for thought and action ,
and much practical good has been ac
complished. Still moro ought to bo
done to help build up the city , nnd io
champion its interests , but for a
lethargy among many who ohould
give the Board their hearty support.
Thcro are a number of enterprises
such as the building of an opera
house and the securing of a govern
ment building , which could bo mighti
ly helped along by this organization
if all its members wore keenly alive
nnd enthusiastic , and these who ought
to join wonld como in readily and
work willingly. Such an organization
when properly manned nnd heartily
supported can do a great work for
this cily. When meetings are called
they nro too often neglected , and the
few who do gather shrink from tak
ing the responsibility of moving in
important matters. In the hope that
the organization may gather to itself
moro strength , may attract moro at
tention , nnd may take fresh courage ,
THE BEE gives the following list of
the present membership of the board :
L. 0. Baldwin John W. Clmnmnn
Marshall Key F. C. No ell
Lewis Hammer J. J. Hathaway
Geo. C. Keelino J. H. Davidson
H. E. Heamnn It. C. Hubbard

The ofiicors at present are : Presi

dent , II. H. Motcalf ; second vice
president , W. 0. James ; secretary ,
E. D. Odoll ; treasurer , E. E. Hark-
ness ; directors , M. E. Smith , Henry
Eisoman , F. 0. Newell , A. B. Mo-
Kune , A. 0. Graham.
With such men , all alive and in
earnest , and with the additional sup
port of many others who ought to
join , there is strength enough to
make a success of almost any plan or
enterprise worth pushing forward , if
this strength could be concentrated
&nd rightly directed.
