'J he assessors' books from all parts of the county are now in except those of Council Hind's. They should have been returned by the third Monday in May , but for some reason have been delayed. The case of the State v.s 1'cter Drury , for malicious mischief , was tried in tfic district court yesterday. The defendant is a well known farmer of Boomer town ship , and the oU'ensc consisted of tearing away a bridge. The knowledge that the Women's Exchange can furnish elegant refresh ments for luncheon parties is spreading to adjoining cities. An order from Sioux City was filled this week. Give them a call. No. I5S Pearl street. On Sunday morning there will bo me morial bcrvlees held in the Congrega tional church , the pastor of which will preach a sermon appropriate to the day. A cordial invitation is extended to all , and especially the veterans.to be present. Miss S. D. Hehse.the well known artist and teacher , has decided to spend the summer here , and while she will not open her .studio regularly , .she has decided to have a sketching class , which will doubt less be joined by many of the old pupils , us well as some new ones. The oppor tunity offered is an excellent one , and in and about Council Hind's there are many views of beauty and excellent subjects for sketching. Win. Siedentopf , the insurance man , calls his Horse "Nero. " Thosignilieanco of this choice of a cognomen does not appear at first , but when it is remem bered that Nero fiddled while Homo burned , one cannot be far from a guess. At that big lire the buildings were not in sured , and Nero was happy because the insurance company of which ho was president did not have to pay for the loss. President H. S. Do Forest , of the Freedmen's college at Talladega , Ala. , has lately produced a showing of that institution , which especially interests his friends hern. It is a historical sketch of the college , illustrated with views of the grounds and buildings. It was published originally in the Christian at Work , and is now being sent out in supplement form to the many friends of the institu tion. There are now eighteen teachers , and an attendance of 805. Marshal Herbert , of Atlantic , Iowa , searched a job printing olliee there for gambling implements , tools , etc. Ho found none. If Atlantic's marshal really wants a game he should come to Council .Hind's , where there are several gambling houses so anxious for suckers that they keep the chips rattling whether a game is going or not , for fear that some passer by might not know that there was a chance to play. The marshal would not have to hunt around job ollices in Council Bluffs. Order your fireworks of the Mcller Music company , 118 Main struct. Whole sale only. Mail orders promptly at tended to. _ _ 1.

A Sinnlt Senrcli Social Doings of IlcanttryliiK tliej Com * UTS' Other tlntl Aliout TIMVII. Up the Union Pacific. Tlio investigation of the charges against the Union I'aeilie was continued yester day. The board of railway commission ers hold their sessions in the parlors of n home , nnd each day the rooms are well lilled. Many merchants and shinpers arc watching the proceedings , although there is little learned from the witnesses beyond what has time and again been made nnblie. J'lms fur the evidence hit. " been strongly in support of tlio claim that Council Hind's lias been discriminated against , and that the Union 1'acillc lias not been complying with the mandamus. The fact that Council Hlull's called to the stand the olllcials ot the road as its own witne.s-.es to support the charges made against tlio compauv , indicalcs that Council Bluffs is 'not afraid of Its course. Since tlm examination of these witnesses , a large number of Council Bluffs shippers have been examined. They have testilicd Miougl.y in support of the charges made Thus' far the exam ination lias been almost altogether in favor of Council Bluffs. When the Union I'aeilie gets to showing up its sidcoflliu enMi and evaniiuiiig its witnesses - nesses , then the complexion of thu affair ma > be made to change a little. Council Hind's has undertaken quite a la.sk. There .si-cms now little doubt but that Council Bluff * has losl some of the advantages it formerly held , I lie stock yards for Instance , and that there has been inconveniences in both passenger and freight traffic. The trrcnt point'of contention really is whether changes have been brought about by the Union 1'iicilie company as a blow to Council lUull's ami a help tor Omaha , or whether these changes have come about from the pleasure of business necessities. It also remains to be seen whether theM ) causes of complaint can be rcmcdipii. Council HI nil's has awakened and is mak ing a brave light. Ate its liuul results there are as many varied predictions as there are persons to predict. One noticeable detail of the investiga tion is that all of the railway olliciids who place their names on the Ogdcn hoiisi1 regihtcr record tliPiiM'lvt" ! us be longing to Omaha , except \V. 11. Imrus. . who invariably registers as from "eily. " It seems then that Council HhiH'i i- > the ridciiee ! of one of the notiiblegathering. Alnnager C'alhuvav was not in attend ance ye.ilcrdav. The only new comer was W. F. ( JriHith , assibtant general freight aireut. Ycsterthiy , Iamcs A. Jackson testified as to tlie .stock yards in this city being in fected in 18 1 , and in consequence he biiU'cred a loss of about thirty head of cattle. Had not used the Council IJlull's yards since 1881 on account of that. Ex-Coiigrcisman 1'nse.v testified as to the establishment , growth and limil de cline of business at the stock yards. Samuel Haas was recalled to the stand , and said in his experience in shipping cattle from the west he and bis men always bad to leave the caboose in Omaha ami climb on top of ( he stock cars in transit to Council Ulull's , in order to be with the stock : that the accommo dations ; it the yards in ijncstion , in 1 81 , were lirst class , and the same in the two following years ; in 1881 ho was the lir.st to ship cattle east after the South Omaha yards were opened , and in Cheyenne he was approached by INlr. Mcbhunc , of the South Omaha yards , and asked to t-hip them to Omaha ; that Me- Shane said the attendance at the Council Ulull's yards was very bad , as w.is the feed. After arriving at the Council Hind's yards Mr. Haas found that Mr. McShane had told the truth. Mr Haas telegraphed his partner that in shipping cattle to stop at the South Omaha yards , as the feed and attendance at the yards in this city were very poor ; made reports of the con dition of the yards to tlio Union I'acilio ollicials , but no remedy came ; had heard that Mi. William Paxton had said that he would make Haas go to the South Omaha yards in the future ; but Mr. Kim ball , general traffic manager of the Union racilie , told him ho would write to L'ax- ton and that Hans .should have courteous treatment. C. A. Ucobc was the next to testify. Ho claimed that the Broadway depot was wholly inadequate ; that he could get no information tnero , they having no agent , but simply a check cleric. Freight had been refused at the depot after 0 o'clock 011 account of there not being room to accommodate it. Mr. Merriam , of David Bradley & Co. , testified as to the Lincoln train not run ning through to Com.oil ISlntl's. Various freight discriminations were also cited by him. The action of the Unioii I'aeilie in going back on the arrangement from ex tension of the track up Twelfth avenue , to accommodate Main street shippers was nlso cited by him. Ho did not know of a single railroad that did not have its gen- eraLoflices at its terminus. The Union I'aeilie was a solitary exception and had its general ollices at one end of the stations on its line , instead of Council Hlull's , which was its legal terminus. ( J. W. Staid , driver for C. A. Hccbe , swore as to tlio delay experienced in ship- Ding freight at the Broadway depot caused by the facilities being inadequate. Several other persons testified to sub stantially the same troubles , umomgthem being C. U. Wuito of Shugart , Waite & \Vies. W. W. Loomis of David Bradley & Co. , testified that the facilities at the Broad way depot were wholly unequal to the demands made upon it. Adjournment was had until tlio usual hour this morning.

OH East Pierce fcircet , exploded , causing the flames to catch the wood work of an outer room in which the stove was sit uated. As usual there was a delay in getting an alarm turned in. No key waa to be found to the box , and a messenger Imil to be sent to Geiso's brewery , from which place a telephone message was sent in. Before the department could reach the place the fire had been put out by hand. The loss was alight. The building is owned by Mr. Baker. When the alarm was scut in the team of the Bluff City lioso cart canio Hying out of their stalls , but instead of wafting for the harness to drop upon them , they pushed through thofront , door , and went dashing off without any hose cart. They made ti wild break to put out the fire , but their zeal exceeded their judgment , and they had to bo hunted up and brought back to headquarters , Substantial abstracts of titles and rae estate loana.

The City of the Dead. A move is on foot to get it drinking fountain placed in the cemetery. The city , under its contract with the water works , is entitled to si\ public drinking fountains , but there are only live in place. The cemetery folks want the sixth one. It seems that Fnirmount park needs all that tliu city can supply in the way of water works improvements. The ceme tery association and the lot owners can easily provide themselves with all needed conveniences at little individual expense. There Is need of more pride and enter prise on the part of lot owners in the cemetery. Many lots are neglected and are allowed to bo become unsightly by an ovcrirrowth of foliage and a lack of care. In many cemeteries the nonresident dent lot owners pa.y a small sum annu ally to the se\ton to take care of their pioport.y and to keen it mown and other wise in an attractive condition. The cost would be mil t tilling , and the appearance of the cemetery would' be greatly beautified. Those who reside here and own lots would then have further incentive to keep their lots beautiful. The cemetery , as a whole , does not compare favorably with the ecnielerie.s of oilier cities in the care shown by lot ouners. It is a most beautiful M > of naturally , and can bo made .still more so by care ami needed improve ments. So long as so many lot owners show o little inlcre.-t in improving their lots , it seems that the city at large can hardly be o.xpceted to do so.
