The Imggy was also smashed somewhat. The team was neatly stopped back of the Tre- mont house by J. D. Stringer. The Kmmott house , of which Mr. B.

Ex-Mayor Vaughan fays that ever nluco he began ndvcrtUing in Tun linn ho lie haa'been disposing of one or two cheap building lots dally. When those whom Tliu BER has criticised an sharply as it has him , thus acknowledge its far-reach ing power as an advertising medium , it is evident that TUB UKK'H claim as the best advertising medium in the city is not ' without foundation in fact Cards are out announcing the marriage of Phil. 11.

There Deeming to bo much ill-nature on both ides and many detaili to the neighbor- lood row , a continuance of the caie wan until next Monday. Preparations are being made for put- iing in the electric fire alarm system at -once. The committee are communicating -with cities where the system is already In use to ascertain any defect * which may h ye been discovered by actual use , and to avoid inch defect * here if possible. It is -expected that at an early date the new al > rm * will be ready to sound In good hape , and will certainly be a great im provement over the present uncertain and tardy manner of sounding the alarm. The Brush Electric Light company eein * anxious to come to this city and make an exhibit , with a view of having the light adopted here. The local com * 3 > any proposing to take hold of the bunt- ness will be required to pay freixlita on the apparatus , nnd i-ne uiau ? 3 dally during the trial. The company which exhibited nt Burlington lately , and whose Tepreentatlvp recently visited this city , Jiau not made any further arrangements than were stated at the time. Over three months ago Mr. Chapman nnd others secured a charter from the city fur bu Iding a new street railway line. One of the conditions named iu the ordi nance granting the right , wa that the vork of oonitructiou should commence within three months after the pa&sage of the ordinance , and be completed within a jear. So far no very animated appear' ance ot work has been seen , and it looks ai if , under the ordinances , the tight of thi new railway hod been forfeited. In anj event it will orobably be plgeon-hnled together with thallerdlo scheme , in whicl The Nonpareil's colonel wai orlglnallj concerned , nnd over which he crowed o lustily , until ho found it was no go , am let Mr. Vaughan shoulder the enterprise The Nonpareil colonel should have showr ut > better on the street railway scheme , and redeemed himself as a Miccentful man oger. NUMBERING OF HOUSES. The Abaonco of Fi juros CHUBOS Much Annoyance ) and Bewilderment Especially to Strangers. The laat ordinance in the bound volume aont forth na the city's declar ation of law , Boomu to bo the last one to bo thought of or observed , It is in regard to the numbering of houses. The ordinance among other thine ; ! provides as follows : The city engineer shall designate the numbers of all houses , in con' ' formity with the preceding provis ions , allowing ono number for nboul twenty foot of vacant ground , ant shall furnish the owner of each hounc , now or hereafter built , with its propoi number as noon aa completed. Whor any house is not correctly numbered , or not numbered at all , the city on < gtnoor shall give such houao its propoi number and require the sixmo to be put on such house in a conspicuous place next to the street. In cos * any owner , occupant 01 agent , after being required as aforrv said by the city engineer , shall refuse or neglect , for the space of ton days , t } number a houao as required , 01 shall number or attempt to numbei such house otherwise than in con1 formity with this ordinance and the requirements of said city engineer , such person shall bo deemed guilty oi A misdemeanor , and upon conviction thereof before the city recorder , shall bo fined not leas than five dollars not more than fifty dollars ; and when such fine is paid the said city engi neer shall c.iuso such house to bo cor rectly numbered at the expense oi the city. If this ordinance was lived up to or enforced , there would bo many mis understandings and annoyances avoid ed. As it is , to strangers especially , it is great trouble to find any placo. Soma of the buildings have the old numbers and some the now numbers , and many none at all. The mtm now encaged on the now directory have an excellent chance to test the condition of the city so far as numbering of houses is concerned. A largo majority of these of whom information is sought are unable to give the number of tnoir residences , and aggravate the collector of facts b > stating that they live on such a street , just south of so and BO'S house a couple of doors , and opposite such a school house , string ing out the description to an extent which would require a special guidebook book to each houso. These who have to deliver goods and those who desire to find parties with whom they have business complain of the same deplo rable condition of the street number ing.Thoro There should bo some steps taken , and promptly too , to enforce the or dinance and seouro the proper num bering of residences especially. The free delivery of mail by carrier will without doubt bo established in this city about the 1st of July , and unless the present mizod up condition of the numbers is straightened out it will cause still further annoyances and mistakes. The same ordinance ulso provides that the city engineer uhall , at the ex pense of the city , cause signs to bo posted up on street corners , giving the names of the same. This , too , is neglected largely. Council Bluffs having assumed the position of "a first-class city , " it should begin to put on a few of the metropolitan airs , and especially these which provo so much of a convenience BH does the numbering of houses and naming of streets.

He is Straining Himself to Cap ture the Congressional Convention , Some Stroupe Coincidence * Show lag How Qnoorly Wire * nro Palled. Major Anderson and The Nonpareil seem ta have formed an alliance of fensive nnd defensive , and particu larly offensive to many. The policy which they are thus jointly pursuing seems to bo to so sot up the pins that they may have the nominating ot a candidate for the congressional honors of this district. They seem to act upon the theory that thcro is no par ticular need of a convention at all , and their idea of a convention seems to bo that of getting a lot of puppets together to go through a scries of auto matic movotnonts , in response to _ the pulling of the wires by them , It is a sad comment on the people and on the delegates whom they are expected to send to the convention , that they are looked upon as only a sot of wooden figures to dnnca at the motion of cither the finger raised or lowered by the major or the colonel , It remains to bo aitoii how the people and their delegates will enjoy this sort of treat ment , nnd whether they will submit to this sort of dictation. The public is not surprised at the alliance between the major and "tlw colonel. " They are both known as being interested in the furthering of monopoly , and as being largely under railway influence. There is ono strik ing coincidence in tht , editorial man agement of the Nonpareil. When Major Anderson appears in the city , it always "happens" that ( ho follow ing issues contain a number of news paper clippings and communications signed "A Young Republican , " all showing that Major Anderson is the coming congressman , and ignoring all other candidates. Then silence follows. Again Major Anderson op- pears In the city ; again the "colo nel's" columns are devoted to his praise. Thcro are other marks to show the major's progress through the country , AS ior instance in The Harrison County News a abort time ago. There ap peared a few lines to the effect that some who pretended to know claimed that Maj. Andonon had the lead. In an adjacent column appeared'a para graph which had the oar-marks of The Nonpareil and the major. It was to the effect that the bridge bill , for pro viding a passage across the river here , would provo a failure. Evidently someone had been suggesting or con tributing items. Another showing of how the wires are worked has cropped oat. Hon. John Y. Stone wss in the field , but has since withdrawn , and is throwing what influence bo can in favor of Major Anderson. It utraiigely happens uint just botoro this withdrawal was made public , the major and the "colonel" took a little Lrip together , and going to DOB Moines had an interview with the governor and other parties there. It now leaks out that in order to got Stone out of the way a promise has boon made that if Major Anderson japtures the nomination , Stone shall : iavo his place upon the railway com mission. Hon. John Y. Stone is well known as a railway attorney , and as having interests run along parallel with the railway interests. On this account , if for no other , ho would bo no improve ment over Major Anderson as a com missioner. The worst feature of any iuch alleged combination or trade is , however , that the railway commission is to bo used as a aort of lover to lift puny men into power , or a sort of iweot-moat to atop the crying of some rival The talk , so cheaply tossed about by the Nonpareil , that Major Andor- lon will bo nominated by acclamation is inoro balderdash and is like the whistling of a coward trying to keep a.i courage while walking through n graveyard after dark , The people propose to have something to say , and their delegates will not bo such wooden - on men as to lot this pair of politicians do all their voting. Two years ago Major Anderson's friends gave just such sanguine talk , but ho still got badly loft. It is easily seen what motives would easily lead the Nonpareil to take up so enthusiastically with Major Ander son. If ho could bo nominated and aloctod , his editorial friend could tiavo'a strong hold through him on the postoflloo hero , a change which ho lias boon yearning for , in order to plant thereon a political helper. An derson's election would help the edi tor , too , seouro a continuation of the office of United States marshal , a po sition which for some particular rea sons ho docs not care to vacate now , Thus seeing a chance to grasp moro political "power for > himself , it is not Btrango , in view of his past rec ord , that ho should bo enthusiastic for Anderson. Ho nill fail , howover. ESuoh day dreams burst like a bub- bio. . SALOON LICENSES . The Probability That tbo Council will Fix Thorn nt Five Hundred Dollars There has boon such a variety of voting by the aldermen in regard to the amount which ought to bo charged for saloon licenses , that the people have lost their bearing , and hardly know what to expect. As nearly as can bo ascertained there are strong chances for the saloon liconsvii being fixed nt $500. It will require a two- thirds vote of the council to fix the amount , instead of three-fourths aa has been stated. That is , it will re quire four out of the six votes to bo cast by the council. Aldermen Gouldon , Newell and Bhugart will vote for having the licenses fixed at $500. Thus it will need but ono ihoro vote to secure this amount. Eyes are now turned on Mr. Wood to BOO if ho will bo the fourth. Ho favors a license of $1,000 and is BO sot on thU that some predict ho will vote againtt a $500 license as not being high enough , but were behove that as there is no possi ble show for having the license fixed so high as ho wants it , that ho wil ! finally vote for $500 rather than sec the amount fixed at loss than that. Thcro are a number of men inter ested in the saloon business who have expressed themselves to the aldermen as quietly favoring a $500 license , although they did not care to openly advocate that amount. In ono local ity are seven saloons , snugly clustered together. Two of the seven avow that they will take out license at $500 , hoping thus to shut out the other saloons nnd have the business all to themselves Another reason which makes some of the saloon men favor a higher license , is that it will shut up some of tke bars at boarding houses , ancHn the rear of grocery stores , and give the business to these who make a specialty of it. Some of the city au thorities , too , are desirous of seeing tome of these places closed , because a bar-room in connection with a board ing house or other business , is harder to regulate , and cannot bo kept shut up on Sunday and at late hours of night. On the other hand it is claimed that if the saloon liccnso is fixed at $500 , many will rofuao to take out licenses , and if prosecuted will turn and squeal on the licensed saloons lor soiling whisky in violation of the state law. There will bo this difference , however : The unlicensed saloons can bo complained of and fined every twenty-four hours under the now ordinance , and the lowest penalty is $10 and costs. Any complaints against tho'liconscd saloons , under the Btato law , will have to wait the notion of the grand jury , which meets only twice a yoar. Thus it will prove an unequal contest , in which licensed saloons will have the advantage. It is understood that Mr. Sicdontopf and Eichor will vote for cither $200 or 8250 , but not above that amount , on the ground that if the liconao is higher , it will not bo collected , as the city can not afford full protection.
