commend the eomso of tiio resident In the
matter of thu veto of the Dos Molnes river

work up sentiment among the New York
state incmbeis against the pioposltion to
pass the bill over the veto. In
carrying out bis purpose Mr. Van
Voorheesasscited that Senator Wilson had
previously woiked and voted against a simi

THE
Peculiar Circumstance In Connection

Ciiit'Aoo , Match 15. A very Important
fact In connection with the Investigation of
thoexptcss robbery was made public this
moinlng. It seems that at a conference
of tlio expiess and railway officials
and dctectlu's yesteiday , Baggageman
Watts was placed under a rigid cross-
examination. AVygant'ssecietaty took a few
notes and wont Mom tlio hotel wheto the
eonteienco was held to the office to write out
Ids notes. Ho did not nn ivc there , and aftet
some lioins seaich was instituted but nottaco
of tlie missing jonng man has been found ,
Wygant lias every conlideneo in his integri
ty and is sine that ho has either been abduct
ed 01 met I out play. It Is nndoistood that
under the seveio eioss-e.xamintalon of tlio
cletc'ctlvei , Watts made some valuable state
ments , but lust what ho has admitted cannot
be abceitaincd.

In a demented condition near a coal ollico in
a distant pait ot tlio city. Ho could give no
coherent account ol himself , and his notes , of

their disappearance or as to tlio cause ot the

THE BLUFFS' ' NEW COUNCIL ,
Mayor Chapman's Innngnral Adverse to the
Greedy Union Pacific.
ELECTION OF CITY , OFFICERS.
A New Police Force Appointed , With
Matthews the Chief Temple-

Again Notes.
The First of the New.
The now city council held its first regular
meeting last night. Mayor Chapman pio-
cceded to read his lnnugiii.il address. In Its
\cryopenlnghopaldnlltllng tribute lo his
late competitor , Hobert Perchnl , whoso sud
den death has caused so much sortow In the
community. The Inaugural then palit a
ttlbute to the peonlo as the sovereign lo
whom officials must bo icsponslble. In poli
tics tlio now mayor promised to show the
same non-p.ittlsanshlpas was shown by the
people In his election. He mged the fosterIng -
Ing of mannfactmlng Inteicsts hero , lie be
lieved the time would como when Council
Bluffs would have the finest water power In
the country , by using npottlon ol llio Mis
souri ihcr. There were oilier matters need
ing mote speedy attention. Onoot tlicsowas
the new Union ncllic bridge. The
plans for the now bridge wcto such
as would nauow the channel botno
700 feet. This should not be permitted. This
gteat corporation had been petted until It
was like n prodigal. The company had
shown no disposition lo keep Its woid with
this city. The mayor lecommended that
steps be taken to make them open a suitable
watercourse ; that the light to use Union
avenue bo icvokcd , unless they complied
with the promise to inn trainsoveiy half
hour and make the toll icasouaule. Mayor
Chapman devoted a latgo poitlon ot his in
augural to dressing up tlie Union Pacitic , to
which he has been such a friend.
After reciting the causes of gtlevanco
against the Union Pacitic , ho said : "I also
iccommend that their charter planting them
the use of Union avenue be annulled , If
they continue to charge the piesent exoiblt-
ant tolls and tail to inn their tialns
every thhty minutes as tlio law icmilies.
Also , th.it a losolutlon of piolebt bo adopted
and foivvarded to tlio delegation in congtcss
fiom our own state against the passage of
the so-called eightj-.venr extension bill ,
lids bill asks that thiity-year bonds , now
almost duo and bearing 7 pet cent inteicbt ,
bo lifted nnd canceled , and that an eighty-
year bond bo substituted which beais but 3
per cent intctest. This icquest , in the
opinion of many poisons is not only
immodest but docs -violence to all bus-
nesspiincinlcs. To my mind the simple ask
ing for such a measuie , nggtegating perhaps
SlOO.UD.OOO , combining ininclpal and Inteiest
with the legal coliatetal obligations incident
theicto , is the manifestation of .1 spirit ot
greed and aval ice only excelled by the bandit
and outlaw who "takes to the load. " We
have In all the past obtained but slight recog
nition ot our lights at the hands of this cor
poration except through legal piocess , and In
so far as our city Is concerned , its interests
could not bo placed In greater hazard if the
corporation weio to pass into the hands of a
receiver to-moiiow. "
Ho urged that thn paved stteetsbo cleaned
nnd swept. For tire alarm service lie recom
mended making some coiitiact with the Dis
trict Telegraph company. For sticet lighting
ho recommended that electric lisht bo favor
ed lather than eas. Ho ctiticlsrd the present
rates charged for gas , nnd declared that there
were patties now ready to take a charter and
build vvoiksand supply gas at half the pres
ent rate. Tlie mayor endoiscd tlio recent
act on exempting fiom city taxes now mantt-
facturlncentoipilses. He thought it should
bo ictioactive , so as to exempt such a tnctory
astho JlcClurgCiackcr company. The gen-
eial ad vantages of the city , Its building im
provements , its business and tinancial con
dition were also portrayed In encouiaging
woids. A financial showing of the city was
included in the Inaugural. The icsoiiices lor
the coming year tor geneial putposes weie
about 875,000 , and the expenses ot the past
year wei o about SW.OOO.
The mayor urced a fiee wagon bildge be
tween Omaha and Council liluffs. Those two
cities could nffoid no longer to show jeal-
ou ° y orrivalry. They weie In fact onecom-
merclal center to the outside world. Ho shall
use his lullucncc toaldiuiy move to secmo
such a bridge. As to the moialitv of the
city , lie expressed the dcteiinination toclear
tlio city of cappers and thieves. The siloons
would not bo closed , it the keepers conducted
their places in a respectable manner. They
must close Sunday. They must not allow
loatcrs and toilers to hang nbont their places.

SHERMAN'S REFRACTORY SON ,
Just Entering Georgetown College to linisli
, IIis Studios for the Priesthood.
FROM SOCIETY TO SACKCLOTH.
rtconlllnj ; the Sensation Caused When
JIo Announced Hln Intention
ofUrcomtiiKa Priest The
Father's Ancr. ;
Heady to Don the Coasnclr.
AinonRtlio Jesuit scholastics who hnro
lust eiiteied Georgetown college , District
of Columbia , to nmko tliolr llnal propnr-
itions for the priesthood , is a pale , slim
young m in , of gunurnlly nscctlc appear-
met ) , who u few years u o was ono of tlio
cnders of Washington's gilded youths.
.This is William Sliornmn , oldest son of
.ho general. Kverybody here is recalling
he sensation oiui'-cd when ho nnuouneed
lis intention of giving up tliu world nnd
louning llio Jesuit cassock.
lie was nt the time n student in the
aw ilepailtneilt of Guorgetown college ,
md was teeogni/.cd as the leader of lita
'lass , both in intellect nnd in social qual-
tics , lie vvns one of tlio most dashing
Doting follows in town , though by no
.ncans . a dude. Tins old general fairly
loted on thu promising bov , nnd relied
on him to perpotnato the lopututlon of
the Sherman name. It issiud , too , that
roung Slturmun was engaged to a lich
3t Louis lady , and it vyas understood
hut , immediately nflor his admission to
lie bar , ho vvns to marry her and settle in
St. Louts. Nothing in ins conduct gave
evidence of tlio religious fervor which
ms since marked him us the most pious
of Jesuit student.s. His mother , a sister
of ( ten. Kwinc , of Ohio , wits , it is true , a
devout Catholic , nnd had carefully
: ruincd her son in tln Catholic fiuth , but
i' was , like most young men , piofessedly
hristian , though caiole&s enough iu
practice.
The change was clTected by a retreat
which the catholic students of George-
: ovvn college made in 1878. Tlieso re-
tieats consist of a succession of religious
exercises prayers , preaching nnd medi
tations lasting ono week , during which
almost absolute silence must bo preserved.
Young Sherman had been more conspic
uous than usual in the gay season of
1877-78 , so that when the retreat of tlio
Intter year camo. ho entered it with all
the fervor of reaction. The day after it
was finishcd.ho . wont lo the Hov.Dr. llunly ,
president of the college , and begged to
bo admitted into tlio Jesuit novitiate. Hemet
met with a downright ruftiMil from the
wary priest , who had witnessed before
the ephemeral ofl'octs of religious enthu
siasm , and who thought that the appli
cant's fervor would die out with the cx
citemcnt. Perhaps n fear of tlie old gen-
oral's certain wrath had also something
to do with the refusal. Anyhow the hey
was advised lo continue the study of law.
Young Sherman them developed that te
nacity of purpose which is a characteris
tic of the Sherman family. Ho rctuscd
to open another law book. He appealed
again and again to Dr. Hcaly until , after
siv months of anxious probation , hopes
wcro hold out to him that ho would be re
ceived.
Another and more formidable iliflictilty
way in store for him , however. His fath
er's opposition had to bo mot with.
Armed with an explanatory letter from
Dr. He.tly , ho faced the general one
morning and announced that ho was go
ing to join the Jesuit * . It is said that iv
stormy scene ensued one fully up to the
scenes described in novels , wherein dis
appointed parents nnd refractory chil
dren exchange surprising , appalling and
nnpr.y words nnd part forever. The gen
eral declared that lie would never con
sent lo sue his son n piiest , nnd the son
declared that nothing could deter him
from eiitcrin < r the priesthood. So they
parted , and have not seen each other
since.
Young Shormnn was pent to the Jesuit
novitiate ntFredoiick , Md. , hut for some
reason said to , lm connected with nn-
noynnco from relatives lie was boon
transferred to the Jesuit novitiate in Eng
land , lie returned to tlio United Stttcrt
in 188B , and went to Woodstock college ,
Alaryhmd , whore ho remninod till last
yenr , which he spent teaching svt Loyola
college , Baltimore , in conformity with
the Jesuit rule that requires all siihohiR *
tics to teach for a certain time. Ho will
ho ordained a priest next year.
( { en. Sherman lias never recovered
from tlio disappointment cnu = ed by tiio
course of his favorite child. .Much of his
crankiness of late year * is to ho uttrimi *
ted to this source. Prior to 1878 , ho Inul
oviiibilcd little of that unruly tamper
which Ims since gotten him into bo much
troublo. It was thought at one time ) that
ho was on the point of becoming a
Catholic , biitsinco 1878 nothing could in *
( luce him to enter n Catholic church.
One of young Sherman's t-iiih-nmtes is
also the Kim of : i distinguished sire. 'J Ills
is Scholastic Roman , son of ov-Uniled
Slides Senator Kormm , of Now York. It
would bo interesting tof \ ir these yonne
