THE DAILY BEE. .COUNCIL BLUFFS. Tuesday laornintr , Dcd 25t SO cent * ir * i 110.00 i > ct Year IOFFICB : ( < No. 7 Pearl Street , Near Broadway. MINOR MENTION , Merry Christmas. See Joseph lloitor's fall goods. Additional local on seventh page. Cheap Railroad Tickets nt BushnoH's. The dummy trains run to-day the same as on Sunday. , Remember the printers' masquerade this evening. The alarms of fire thus far this year number thirty-five. The city council will moot Wednesday night if the aldermen get over Christmas n time. Much fun and n good time everyway is assured all who attend the printers' ball to-nSght. tf. The exorcises of the Episcopal Sunday school are to bo hold in Bloom & Nix- on's hall next Thursday evening. The now warehouse of Van Brunt , Thompson it Co. , near the Northwestern depot , is almost ready for occupancy. Ono of the news gleaners' an evening ing paper is expected to visit another state to-day the state of matrimony. A Christmas ship was the novel way of bringing the Christmas gifts to the children at the Methodist church last evening. Justice Schons ! yesterday slipped the matrimonial yoke ever the nocks of J. W. Anderson and Hattie M. Terry , both of Mills county. Although Dr. Pondson is absent , his oflico is upon as usual , and Dr. O. W. Gordon continues the practice there at the usual oflico hours , Stern ctKohu , expect on the first of January to move from Main street into Marshal Key's building on Broadway , lately occupied by Browstor. Rev. Mr. Mackoy , the rector of St. Paul's church has ono the best Christmas gifts a bright , bouncing boy a big stream of sunlight in the house. St. Paul's ' Episcopal church has been very handsomely decorated for the Christmas - * mas festival and services , which are to bo hold this morning at 10:30 : o'clock. The drop curtain at the now opera house is hung , the chairs are all sot in the family circle and parquotto , and the interior begins to show what it will bo when completed. * The second annual ball of the Blufl City typographical union ia to bo given this evening at Bloom & Nixon's hall. It will boa masquerade , lots of fun , good music , and the boys should have a crowd. The postofllco will be open to-day from 11 a. in. to 12:30 : p. m. No carrier delivery. Office open in the evening from 7 to 8 p. m. The carriers will col lect mail from the boxes between 3 and Cp. m. Jh V The call ' which appears in another column r will'doubtless umn result in the many friends of Miss Stevens having an oppor tunity of hearing her before her return to Now. York. Such a musical event will prove a rare treat indeed. Justice Abbott yesterday had before him a drunken sort pf a vagrant , giving his name as McAllister. The follow was fined § 50. and given four hours in which to get the money. Ho seems to have gene out in the country to borrow it. The ice skating rink has eight inches of solid ice and will bo flooded every night. The fence and house will all bo completed by this eve and if the weather permits there will bo skating 'to-niuht. It ia the desire of the proprietors to have the electric light put in if they will run it down Broadway. The freight platform in course of erec tion at the Broadway dummy station will bo completed in a day or two. This is located on the north side of the pas sengerjplatfonn , and tlio engine , when i comes in , will not frighten horses as heretofore , because the freight caia am . platform will bo between them und the engine. It will bo a great convenience to shippers. In moving about ono of the big safes in the city building , ono corner of tlio eafo wont through the floor , staving hole. The city has so long had a build ing with holes in the floor , that it woult hardly know how to got along withou them , and 'Squire Burke who has beei in the old budding since its first occu pancy , will got lonesome in his new f * j quarters without a hole or two. So lo them bo undisturbed , A post of the G. A. R. waa ostablishoc at Tabor Saturday night by Colonel Ab bott. The now post starta out wit ! twenty-three charter members , and com posed of many leading men ot that place It is officered as follows : John P. Smith P. 0. ; Charles P. Will , adjutant ; Oharle F. Wells , S. V. 0. ; F. 8 , Jones , J. \ C. ; 0. H. West , Q. M. ; M. Pinkurton chaplain ; P. H. Drake , 0. of D. ; J Ilollister , O , G. ; David Elsou , S. M , John Glover , Q. M. S , Some of the now furniture for the cit building has arrived. Among * the lo are now individual desks for t\io \ alder men , a great improvement over the ol table * . Ono thing is noticeable in th adornment , there being on each des ; three stars , Whether this indicates tha the aldermen belong to a bright galaxy or whether the stars are the insignia o rank , op whether they are hints of sta ohaaber or sUr route proceedings * no breeds contempt even in the aw of the electric light , Ton days ago a howl waa raised that there waa da g r of anybody being killed who iou b d the wires at all. Front that ex- rome the public has swung to ono of ox- rome carelessness , and some of the atrons have got to fooling and tinkering Tith the lamps themselves. The man- gcrs have boon obliged to warn the pub- c to lot the llglita and wires entirely lone. The company has employos to ook after thorn , and some very serious ccidont may result from inexperienced > ersons fussing with the apparatus. Ono of the aldermen wanted the city mrshal yesterday to make the bands of uisic stand in the street and play , as hero were too great crowds on the side walks in front of the business houses thus dvcrtiainy. Council Bluffs docs not have ny too crowded sidewalks. Lot the rowds come and go , so long as they bo- mvo themselves. It gives the street omothing of the air of a cityand , a crowd f men buying goods is not half so bad as a crowd of men buying votes , and yet hero is nothing said on election day bout the crowds around the polls cs- icclally by the aldermen. An information was filed before Jus- ice Vaughan yesterday charging Frank , an employe of the Milwaukee it St. Paul , with assault and battery and assault with intent to kill , the battered one being K. D. Phillips , son of R. V. 'hillipa. Young Phillips claims that after taking a drink or two with Good , hu latter assaulted him in the street near Mr. Englo's store , pounding him up rndly , closing both eyes , and almost crushing in his skull. Ho did not re cover consciousness enough until ycstor- lay to give details of the assault , and is now unable to bo out. Miss iTctinio Flumming , whoso stair way , leading to her photograph gallery , vcro lately torn down by order of the city council , an an obstruction in the street , has replaced the same by a narrow > air , which do not'oncroach on the street n fact , though they do in appearance. The council ought to go to work tearing down thp other stairways , which are clinically obstructions if they do not want to stand charged with inconsistency and spite. Why did they not pick out flio Nonpariol stairway , or the stairway > f some staunch citizen , instead of that ) olonging to a woman ? Miss Fleming , > y putting up this narrow stairway , evi dently dares the city fathers to try again. Ladies' and gent's cldthing cleaned , dyed and repaired at.Hurlburt s , 34 Pearl street. I'KUSOXAIj. Mr . Ayloaworth , eistor-Iti-Iaw of Judge Aylosworth , of the suporitir court , left laat veiling for her homo in Crescent. D , H , Vail and wife , of Wlsner , Nob. , are t the Fnciflc. J. At. lllco , son of Dr. Illco , has gene to liimoapolla on a trip , and it U expected that 10 will liring Mr * . lUco back with him , the oung lady to clmngo her name from Miller o Itlco. W. 11.

On Broadway yesterday afternoon hen the street cars were crowded with odostrians , a stranger accosted a finely rossed gentleman and offered to buy the lothes oil * his back a proposition the ontloman would not accept. Tlio trangor began to take them by force , but was informed he could obtain just as tylish and well fitting clothes by calling in Smith & Teller , 7 and 1) ) south Main troot , the loading merchant tailors. GENEROUS GIVEES , How tlio Appeal Made iti YcHterilnj's lleo Mot AVIth Ronpontics. In yesterday morning's BEE there was ; u appeal for the remembrance of the lomo of the Friendless , during holiday oason especially , The statement was nude that there were 9150 of bills to bo mot , and no cash to moot them with. Yesterday Horace Everett drew his chock 'or $50 in favor of the Homo , am Thomas Ollioor contributed n like amount. This loaves but 850 for some thrive man to tnko. Of course the expenses nro run ning right along , and after those bills are paid there is need of cash and other con tributions to keep the Homo going , so that there is still-a largo ohanco to show zonorosity in supporting a work which belongs to everybody , and is hence more liable to bo neglected. The fac that such representative men contribute ia a voucher for the character of the worl being done. Go to Hurlburt'a fancy steam dyoiiif and French dry cleaning works at 3' ' Pearl street. A Iiook at llottilohciii At St. Joseph's academy there was presented sentod lost evening a novel sight , whic interested many of the little folks treat ly , and many odor | people have neve seen the like before. It is a miniatun representation of Christ in the stable with the wise men of tlio east , Mary Joseph , and other ilguros , together wit the figures of animals of various kinds while little houses arranged on a hillsid represented Bethlehem. The figures nr all very lifelike , though smaller tha lifo size , and the glistening of snow , th sheep , the shoppanl and his dog , horses camels , and all , nmko quite a novel com bination , and a striking representation o the event now being commomoratoi Besides this representation of the stabl at Bethlehem is a beautiful Christmas tree , brilliantly lighted and ploaainyl admired Those sights can bo seen ngai this evening and Wednesday evening , an none of the young folVs should mis seeing them , while the older ones wi Gnd scarcely less to interest them.

In tlio difltrict court yesterday morning rrangomonts wore innclo for n hearing to- motrow on the question as to whether ) r. Cross , charged with the murder of ) r. McKuno , shall bo ndmitted to bail r not. There have boon nil aorta of reports nbout Dr. Cross * bail. The facts scorn a bo thnt his old bond was signed by > hil. Armour , J. M. Pnlmor and John toiler. After Dr. Cross hnd been in- iotcd some of Postmaster Armour's omlstncn objected to his being on Dr. Jross' ' bond , nnd Armour accord- ngly wont to Judge Aylcsworth , icforo whom the bond was iriginally given , ho having held the ex- mination , nnd asked to bo released , ludgo Aylosworth then accepted n now bond , nignccl by J. M. Palmer nnd John teller. These fncts being known , it was Inimed thnt Judge Aylesworth had no ight to tnko this now bond , nnd that if ) r. Cross should skin , there would bo no nlicl bond on which to recover. A > cnch warrant was issued , Dr. Cross was it-rested , and now remains in jail until Jio question of bail can bo determined. The prosecution ia to bo strong , us district Attorney Connor ia assisted by Col. Dailoy , W. F. Sapp , nnd N. M. 'uBoy. John N. Baldwin is for the do- enso , nnd will probably secure other as sistance. Jack Smith waa tried yesterday. Ho was the follow who robbed a man of § 85 at cho Broadway hotel. Uo < was found guilty. In the case of Arnold Jcsso , charged with conspiracy in trying to got $100 out of John Nicholson , the attorney .for the defense , Air. Scnra , raised a demurrer to , ho information , and it was sustnined , the young man being discharged. It socma nn outrage that such an attempt o not only defraud , but to break up n 'amily , should go unpunished , but the aw is full of holes , and Attorney-Soars was sharp enough to spy ono largo enough for his client to crawl through. Floyd Coxzons , the negro , who had a ilashing match with another colored om- > loyo of the Ogden house , waa tried ycs- oruay on a charge of assault with intent a kill. Ho was acquitted. Court then adjourned until Wodnes lay. Innocent fun at the opera house this aftonioon nnd evening.

A Slight MlBiiiulorstaiitline. There was a little row at the Western louse between the cook , Billy Smith , and a guest , T. W. Castor , of Under wood.
