Mr. Robert Nisbct , of the Lewis Hand
Fire Extinguisher company of Chicago ,
was in the city yesterday. The Union Pa
cific 1ms made arrangements to supply ( ill
its stations , passenger coaches , cabooses ,
emigrant cars , mines , eating houses ,
hotels , olliees and shops with these extin
guishers. The Union Pacific- seems bent
on thoroughly protecting its property as
well as the lives of its employes and pa
trons from fire. Mr. Nisbet will go
out along the line in special car , distrib
uting the extinguishers and seeing that
they are properly put in place. The
Lewis extinguisher is unliku the gren
ades , being a long tin tube , and is as sim
ple as it is eflVetive , and many advan

Some of tlio conservative citizens are
talking of gathering and taking action
nhowing that the mayor of this city docs
not represent the sentiments of the people
ple in his visits to Ues Moincs , and that
lie is in no sen c u true delegate , voicing
the wishes of Council Bluffs. The mayor
has advocated a low license , when it is
well known that th largo majority of the
business men and property owners favor
a high license. In other respects , also ,
many citizens are not satisfied with hav
ing the mayor parade before tlio people
of tlio state as a representative of this
city. They feel like choking him off , and
not being held responsible for some of
his foolishness , Such a meeting wilL
piobably bo called.

Municipal Kconomy.
"How about the city finances , Mr.
Auditor ? Is the present council such a
wonderfully economical one , as some
claim ? " asked the IJii : : man of Auditor
linrko.
"Well , 1 think the present council has
been pretty economical. At the last meet
ing of the council thic'c was less than
$ ! J , 00 of bills allowed , although 1 notice
one of the evening papers says the bills
amounted to about $0,003. If the ne\t
month's bills do not amount to moro than
this , the total expended by this council
for the year will not bo over ! ? < M,000. I
think the total for the year will amount
to less than that. That's running it pretty
close. "
"How docs it compare with other
years ? "
"Why , last year the expenditures were
$80,000 , almost ! ? ! > 0,000. , This year is quite
a saving on last year. "
"Is the claim true that this council is
moro economical than any In the history
of I lie city ? "
"I don't know about that. It has been
an economical council , but it is dillieull
to get at the exact comparisons. There
are always more or less bills which really
belong to one council , which have to be
paid by tlio succeeding one. Some claim
that out of the ! ? < i1uOO , this year , there
should be subtracted about i8,000or $10-
000 , which this council had to pay on
bills contracted by the previous council.
If this is taken out it makes the present
council very low , lower than for years ,
unless they leave a lot of bills for the
next council to pay. "
t-roin others the Hr.n learns that there
will bo an attempt to maintain an eco
nomical policy. Three aldermen are to
retire this spring , and three are to bo
elected to lill their places. If the people
elect or re-elect one economy alderman
to help out the three olceted last spring
and who hold over , the same policy is to
bo maintained. Somoivforms are already
being talked over by oiti/ens , and if the
economical sentiment expresses itself
with force at the polls it will doubtless
be followed up for another year.
Ono of this changes being agitated
somewhat is the combining ot the olliees
of city marshal and police chief. At
present there arc two distinct organisa
tions. The marshal has two deputies ,
and has pose > -s'ion of tlie Jail. The chief
of police has his force under him and has
separate headquarters. The city is thus
obliged to maintain two separate estab
lishments , whereas it is urged that by
making the marshal chief of police the
expenses would be cut down materially ,
it is a well known fact also that the ciiy
marshal and chief of police clash more or
less. Thuir work is similar in many
respects , and their authority often con-
llicts. It scums impossible to get two
men to lill the c olliees who will got
along in perfect harmony. Often a direct
break is not made , but there is contin
ually petty jealousies and dialings which
prevent the best performance of duty
and best sort of service to the public.
It is claimed , with much apparent rea
son , that it would be cheaper and moro
satisfactory to make the police and mar
shal's forces one , under one head , with
one headquarters.
Some other changes are being talked
of. It will not be long before some move
will be made to have less expense con
nected with the police court business. " It
does not scorn to pay to have a $3,000
judge an < t other luxuries to try an occa
sional drunken man or some potty thief.
Most of the serious state cases are sent
to some justice of the peace for prelimi
nary examination so that the justice by
charging up fees in these cases causes
the people to bo at us. great an expense in
these cases as though there was not a
superior court doing a police court
business.
The city has no money to throw * away
or spend foolishly. It is not in a bank
rupt condition , by any means , and does
not want to become so. While the people
ple need to have some enterprise and
make needed improvements , yet as
these improvements for the most part
are paid for by special assessment it
seems that the running expenses of the
city can bo kept down to a reasonable
amount without jeopardizing any pi the
best intercses of the city or retarding its
growth.
Points on Prohibition.
The mayor of Council Bluffs and others
were at DCS Moincs Thursday , and in the
evening appeared buforo the joint com
mittee on the suppression of intetnper-
imCvi Senator Clark was chairman of
tlio committee , the other mcmom' l'"i"
Senators Glass , Sweeney , Chambers , Un
derwood , Donnan , Caldwell , Woolson ,
Chub , Schmidt , Johnson , and Messrs.
Custor , Weaver , Cole , Lyons of Guthric ,
Mitchell , Bunco. Redman , Tipton , Wiley ,
Lathrop , Holbrook , Baldwin and Robb.
Mayor Miigee of Sioux City introduced
Judgit .lohn Brennau of his own city. Ho
said that a $1,000 license was what was
wanted in Mich cities as Dos Moincs and
Sioux City. In thirty days it would wipe
out sixty of the eighty saloons in Sioux
City and put ? ' 0,0'JO , into the city treas
ury. This would make ( he saloon men
law-abiding cili/.uus. Free whisky was
damaging the citizens , begetting saloons
and increasing drunkards. Hu appeared ,
ho said , not fur the saloons , but for tem
perance.
Mayor Magco cndmsed these remarks
and declared that so far from being a
saloon man ho would abolish the whole
business , if it was in his power to do so.
This not being possible ho wanted high
Hconso.
The mayor of Council UlulVs then
spoke , Ho said that thu measure was not
a political one. ll wai one association of
all p.irtics. Thu slate after making Mich
a law paid no money in the mayor's
hands to enforce il and it liud not worked
satisfactory. At Council Bluffs , in order
lo give a revenue to the city they had
passed an ordinance for pop IIOUFCS and
the city had drawn a revenue of .fW.OOO
orao)00. ( ) Ho thought that men who
had sueh oxpurienco as the mayors , who
woio hero , ought to know what was best
for them , especially when they appeared
not as party men , but as ollicials 111 favor
of law and order.
P. G. Ballingall of Ollumwa declared
himself as not in favor of high license. Ho
believed in teaching temperance , train
ing up children to control their appetites
and rofiisiiig to recognize or honor
arunlojds. "I hen sell liquor as you would
meat 01 bread. Lot it run freu as the
rivers. lie wanted n liberal license law.
Ho believed prohibition had niaiio moro
drunkards than nil the saloons together.
The committeu adjourned without coin
ing to any decision as to what report they
would make.
Now Winter Suits.
The approach of the hut day of service
for the coining term of the circuit court
causes the eases , to come tumbling onto
the docket. Among them are some of
public inlc.reU ,
John L , Howe commences a heavy suit
against the city. lie has gained posses
sion of city warrants to the amount of
$9,101 , nnd commences suit to enforce
their payment. As there are a goodly
number of outstanding warrants , and the
city is limited in its power of making
more than n ten mill levy for general
purposes , il seems lliat the city cannot
catch up very easily on these back war
rants. If thrown into judgment the
council can levy ri judgment tax to pay
them off , and thus lessen the amount of
those outstanding and cause warrants to
advance. The nearer that warrants approach
preach par the more economical can the
city inn , for when warrants are depreci
ated the city has to issue enough more to
allow for the discount. Such is the view
of some of the city llnanciers , who rather
like to see the outstanding warrants
cleared up in this way rather than have
them drag along.
J. II. Hammer commences a suit
against the city claiming $3,000 damages
on account of injuries received in driving
over a defective culvert on upper Broad
way , ho being thrown from his buggy by
the wheels running off one side wliieli
was not protected.
E. Wagner claims $075 damages on ac
count of a defective water way , by which
his building on Main street has been
Hooded and the wall undermined.
D. M. Council has commenced suit
against the county , claiming $75 for
services as coroner , the board having re
jected several of his bills. Among the
Hems is Ids bill of $10 for trying to re
cover the body of "Lone Welt , " over
which there was such a sensational strug
gle between this city and Avoca.
Fred Wit/ has commenced a suit
against Charles Bowen in which ho
claims $5)70 : ) , for damages caUMvl by a
dog belonging to defendant. He claims
that in July last ho was riding along in
Meola township , when the uog rushed
out at his horse , frightening the anima' ' .
and causing him to run against a barbed
wire fence. The plaintiff claimed to have
his leg torn in the accident , and to have
been subjected to great pain and expense.
If all this is proved , Bowen will doubt
less feel thai a $5,000 dog is lee expensive
a luxury.
Margiicretta Dunkle has commenced ,
an action for divorce from David Dunkle ,
to whom she was married in Omaha , in
April , 188t. She claims that when she
was married she did not know that he in
dulged in boo/e so freely , but soon found
it out lo her sorrow. Slio further claims
that he so far forgot that he was in duty
bound to her , that he lavished his affec
tions on Gusta Burohall , and on other
women. She sets forth that David has
about $ ( ! ,000 worth of property , above all
indebtedness , and she wants a fair share
of this.
Lost His Koll.
A farmer named Charles Shultx from
Tecumseh ( Neb. ) arrived in this city
Thursday night , accompanied by his
wife. They were en route lo La Creston
( Minn. ) , and on stepping up to the ticket
ollico to purchase the necessary trans
portation tlie fanner found that he was
$1-10 short. He could not account for the
loss of his money very clearly. He says
that at Lincoln two young men got on
board and soon became acquainted with
him. He accepted their invitation to go
into tlio smoking car , and there they had
a happy time , playing cards and refresh
ing themselves with an occasional pull at
a bottle which one ot them had in his
pocket. On arriving at the transfer the
two strangers wanted him to come up
town , but he declined the invitation and
remained thero. As ho went fo buy his
tickols he found Unit he had lost $110. Ho
had the money in a pocketbook in a hip
pocket. He reported the loss lo Officer
Quinn at the transfer , and he investigated
so far as possible , but with no very satis
factory results. It is thought that possi
bly the farmer lost his money by its dropjj
ping out of his pocket. Or possibly he
was the victim ot a confidence game and
was ashamed to admit it , or possibly the
strangers who took such interest in him
got a chance to pick his pocket. One of
ihc strangers is described as a tall man ,
aboul 20 years old , having a moustache ,
nnd wearing a light colored overcoat.
The other was a young man , rather
short , and wearing a full beard. As sev
eral confidence men have been hanging
about here lately , it seems not improba
ble that some of them were Iho ones con
cerned.
