The council met last night. After dis posing of a great deal of roullno business Iho rules were suspended and Mr. Evans suggested the levee ordinance be taken up ] Ho staled that Ihcy wished to hurry it tips that liioy were ready to advance Iho necessary money to build the same until the tax , which only includes prop erty within the limits of the sewer dis- Iricl , which will only bo about 25 cents per lot , can be collected. After approv ing of an amendment reported by the judiciary committee the ordinance was read a third time and unanimously passed. A petition for a cable or motor railway from the dummy depot to lake Manawa and return was referred with inslructions to report an ordinance. Petition for tramway to haul dirt to the west part of the city , referred. At the suggestion of Messrs. Evans , Benson and others who own about a mile of property eacn on Broadway n resolution was passed ordering the pav ing of Broadway to the river , the slrcet to be lifly-six feet wide.

In tlio Bloomer building and in the Hill school this crowded condition ! s particularly notice- able. Council Blull's has a largo number of line school buildmc.s , but the growth of the cily has boon such that even these are all filled. In the building on the hill , the old high school building , there are so manv scholars that some are obliged to sit on tlia edge of the teacher's platform. Yesterday some of the board , with Super intendent McNaughton , were trying lo solve Iho problem as lo what could bo done lo relieve Iho Iroublo. The health of the children mutt be protected , and it certainly is endangered by having so many crowded into one room. Then the children cannot bo given the menial advantages - vantages where a Icachcr has such largo classes. In justice to the children there is need of some prompt relief. As a tem porary relief , it was decided yesterday to use the halls so far as practicable , put benches in there , and secure such ad ditional teachers as might be necessary. In the Bloomer building there is about the same crowding. Superintendent Me- Nauchlon's office has boon turned into n school room , and every possible shift is being made to accommodate the children and secure them the advantages of pure air and individual training to which they arc entitled. The board is contemplating Ih c present situation carefully , and sev eral plans arc being talked over. Ono of the board , Mr. Atkins , lias pre sented to the board a plan which seems to meet with favor. A number of tlio largest taxpayers and oldest residents have been informally consultedand there seems to be an unanimous expression in favor of the general outlines of the plan. The plan will probably be presented to the voters of the city lor them to decide whether they want to endorse it. It is in brief based on the need of another new building. The present Mills school is an old building , but the silo is ono of the most central in the city. The present buildinir is said to bo unfit for further occupancy for school purposes. It is jiro- posed to build in its place a large , line building , to cost not lo exceed $10,000 , and to contain twelve rooms. It is pro posed to use this building for the high school classes and for what is known as the Eighth grade , the ono from which scholars pass into the high school. This would relieve lievo the other buildings , and allow of rooms for the other classes. As another feature of the plan it is proposed to re tain the ownership of the school on the hill , but to lease it for a nominal sum to the stale , or to private parties who will maintain a normal school there. It is believed that there will bo no difficulty in securing for Council Bluft's a largo and prosperous normal school , which would bring young ladies and gentlemen hero from all parts of the country. There are in connection with this building several acres of valuable land , which it is be lieved can be sold and the proceeds used in tiio new building. Such is the outline ot the plan being discussed. Of course nothing can bo done until Iho voters so order , and it will remain with them to decide. The advantages claimed for this plan will bo presented more in detail , but tlio members of the board and others favoring it declare that they arc not desirous of forcing the plan through. If the voters after duly considering it deem it advisable , good and well. A lot of first-class mules on sale at SehleuleV & Bolev's Slar barn , 1,000 to lf , > 00 pounds , and four to six years old.

Yesterday there were not as many largo deals as on some other days , but the num ber of smaller ones was so much greater that thotolal amount exceeded that of the previous day. The boom Is gelling on to a healthier and moro satisfactory basis. The purchases nye moro cooly made , and made in earnest. Mora prop erty is purchased for actual nee , and less for mere speculation , but still there boenis to bn as great a confidence as over in the prices being much higher in a very short timo. In fact everyday sees an advance , not merely in the prices asked , but as shown by actual sales. Yesterday Ihcro wcro moro slrangcrs in the city than for many months past. The hotels are reap ing a harvest in comparison with Iho bus iness common to this time of the year They hnvo not raised the prices ot ac commodations , and seem content to have the increase in numbers' . The streets miintain the signs of activity , the streets continue lo bo thronged , and all con nected in anv way with tlio real estate business are kept as busy as over. There wcro u num.bur of announce ments yesterday which created some lit tle Hurry. Ono of these was that these who recently purchased the Pacific house property would at once proceed to have plan ? drawn up and arrangements made to put up on that site a grand hotel. The location is such n central one , and the outlook is so favorable , that the enter prise is said to have secured plcntv of capital to warrant its going ahead. The present occupants , Ferguson & Sou , are continuing to look after the wants of their guests , and will so continue until the public is notified lo the contrary. Another announcement made yester day was that the carpenters and masons of the Union Pacific railwav had been notified to report at Council BlufTson the 15th , to commence work on new build ings hcio. The plans for various im- provcmcnls on this side of the river seem to bu more than mere plans on paper. The announcement , while not expected , is an assurance that the predictions already made are lo bo realized in part at least. The ten acres known as U indicator's brickyard has been purchased by N. W. Williams and Bcobo A : Co. for $0.000. L. P. .liaison and G. A. Holmes have purchased thrco acres opposite the Kec- line place for ? 1,050. J. 11 Clark has sold his residence on Fifth avenue to Prof. Paulson , of the Commercial college , for § 2,800. T. McCargar yesterday purchased a farm of 220 acres in Garner township. William Siedenlopf yesterday sold to A. T. Flicklngcr all of block 25 in Brown's sub. , except two lots , for $1,200. There are numerous difiicultips crow ing out of the licklonc s , the misunder standings or the bad failh of those buy ing and selling. As a consequence ! there are numerous law suits being slarlcd to enforce contracts or to secure damages. The real cstalo agents claim that in numerous cases parties owning property have given them thu sale of it , stating the pri"o they wanted for property , and when tlio agent had secured a customer , trot part of the money in hand , thu owner would deliberately go back on the ar- rangemenl. Such instances hurt the business greatly. Some strangers wiio have been trying lo invest here have been so uuforlunato as to slip up on purchases by such bad faith on thu part of owners , and rather than worry with a lawsuit have let tlio matter go. It destroys con fidence , icopardi/es Iho legitimate busi ness , anil causes a general hurt. Such a way of duing business is scorned in other cities , and the sooner such instances arc done away witli hero the butler. Among the new suits started in tlio dis- Irict court arc several concerning real estate deals , lo secure commissions for sales , or to enforce tiio compliance with contracts. Among these are the follow ing : George S. Damon vs Samyel Weston - ton ; C. H. & W. 11. Stacy vs Joseph Knotts ; H. S. Shoemaker ys A. J. Pow ell ; C. G. Doplain vs Pace & Schmidt. In this last suit the plaintiff claims that ho was a silent partner in a real estate deal invhich > liis name does not appuar on the records. Ho wants his share of the profits , claiming ? 5,000. William Siedontopt sues George N. Kennedy to enforce the 'deeding of property con tracted for , as the plaintiff claims. A similar suit is that of Alexander Wood < vs Georgia A. Garner.
