CITY CAN PAVE ITS STREETS All Doubt Removed by Unanimous Opinion of Oity Attorneys , DEWEY DECISION A TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT II Mn > ' Ho .Vrppunnrj'i Ilowi'Vrr , for Counell lllnlTH In SonuMvlutt Moillfjln ( lttiir veiiu-nt OnlliiiiticcN. City Solicitor Wadsworth , since his return from Ucs Molneshero last week ho at tended a meeting of the city attorneys of the principal cities In the elate , has given it as his opinion that the city can safely proceed with the work of paving those streets ordered Improved last year by the icily council. Kvcr slnco the decision of the supreme court In the famous Dewey case it was doubtful if , under the present as sessment laws of the state , public improve ments could bo safely niado. This was one of the matters chiefly discussed at Dos Molnos and the city attorneys agreed in designating the turmoil that , arose upon the announcement of the Uowey case deci sion as "a tempest In a tea pot. " "I believe that the Dcwoy decision In no wlso makes H impossible to proceed under the Iowa laws , " says Mr. Wadsworth , "and this was the unanimous opinion of the city attorneys after they had listened to the nblo and exhaustive paper read by Attorney W. H. Bailey of DCS Molnes. The Iowa laws do not make It obligatory that Im provements shall bo assessed In proportion to the linear front feet of abutting prop erty. Whllo all cities have made Uiolr spe cial assessments In this way , it is within their power under the law to make an as sessment. according to benefits derived. It may bo necessary for the city of Council Bluffs to modify Its Improvement ordinances somewhat In order to make thorn comply with the spirit of the Dewey decision , Inas much as the existing ordinances make it ob ligatory on the city council to base the as sessments for Improvements upon the linear feet of abutting property. " If the city should decide on proceeding with 'the ' paving before the ordinances can be amended , it will be on the , theory that the Interested property owners will prefer to pay a reasonable assessment , even though not strictly constitutional , rather than pay the expenses of perhaps extended litigation. A number of the property owners on the streets ordered paved are ready and willing that the Improvement shall bo carried out this year , as the contracts have been let at a very low figure lower than will ever be obtained again , It Is thought. Those who were opposed to the paving In the first In stance arc still objecting to the work being done and see a chance for making their objections good through the Dewey decision. H Is understood that the paving question will bo brought up at the next meeting of the city council for action one way or the other , as the contractors are anxious to know whether they shall do the work or not.

The reception committee of the Mer chants' and Manufacturers' association met yesterday morning at the office of E. W. Hart nnd organized by electing A. T. Elwell chairman. An executive subcommittee con sisting of A. T. Elwell , B. M. Sargent , J. P. Wilcox and J. E. Smith was appointed. It was decided to hold a general meeting of the association with n banquet at the Grand on the night of Thursday. May 25 , instead of at the regular meeting In Juno. Ttio banquet will be solved an hour earlier than on the former occasion. The matter of extending an Invitation to Admiral Schley nnd party to visit Council Bluffs during his stay in Omaha was taken up , and the general opinion was that such an Invitation should inoro properly come from the mayor and city council , and a resolution asking Mayor Jennings to act in the matter was adopted. The committee lit notifying Hie mayor of the resolution as * sured film that the association In genera ! nnd the reception committee In particular would bo most willing to assist in making all the proper and necessary arrangement * for the reception of the admiral and his party If the Invitation should bo accepted. As the city council will not meet In regu lar session before next Monday night Mayor Jennings staled yesterday that ho would In nil probability call that body together at on earlier date , so that the matter nilKlii bo tnktn up and a formal Invitation sent to Admiral Schley. The veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic are moving In thn matter and are most anxious that an Invita tion should bo extended to the hero of San tiago to visit Council Bluffs , oven but for a few hours , so that they may have the opportunity of seeing him and shaking his hand. Should Admiral Schley accept a re ception will bo tendered him at the Granft hotel , or in one of the largo public halls.

HARLAN , la. , May 16. ( Special. ) All day Saturday there was much excitement In the city over the renewed search for the body of Frank Richardson. Richardson , a unique character , who lived in a miserly way , while at the same time lending money to the farmers of Shelby county , disappeared mysteriously three years ago last August. Ho Is known to have had many notes nnd considerable money on his person at the tlmo of his disappearance. It Is believed by many that the man was murdered and his body hidden somewhere near the city. On Saturday a woman coming from Omaha and calling herself Young made her ap pearance. She claims to bo a spiritualist , and Insists that she knows exactly where the body of Richardson lies. Southeast of the city about half a mlle is an old mill turned by the Nishnabotnn river. Two and one-half rods above the mill race is the spot , so the Young woman says , whore the body lies , after having been thrown there in a sack loaded with stones. She Induced a number of paid men to make a temporary dam above the spot on Saturday. A little digging was done and the work will be con tinued this week. The woman declares that the spirit of Richardson appeared to her three times lately. She says he was murdered by three men , an Amerknn , a Dane and a Gorman , just as darkness came on one August night , and that ho was burled until the 8th day of last May , when the body was exhumed and thrown Into the river. She actually points out a place half a mlle from the mill where a hole had been dug , which now con tains nothing. The sheriff of Shelby county stood on the bank watching the .performance , but appar ently took little stock In It. A great crowd gathered to watch things. Federal Inn of l.nhor.

Crop Itiorl. | . The crop report issued today by the Iowa weather and crop service summarizes the crop conditions in Iowa as follows : There was moro than the usual amount of cool and cloudy weather during tlm past week and the week closed with n heavy storm , which brought excessive moisture In portions of the central and southern sec tions. Iowa City reported 4.35 inches for the seven days ending Monday morning and Cedar Rapids U.01 inches , which will cause some delay In field work. Conditions wcro generally favorable , however , during most of the week and the tlmo has been well Im proved in plowing and planting operations. In nil districts considerable progress has been made In planting corn , with the soil In good tilth. This work Is probably moro advanced In the northern nml central dis tricts than In the southeastern part of the state , where there has been an excess of moisture. Spring wheat , fats and barley have made line advancement and the last fek has been favorable for grass. Rut lit tle damage resulted from the frost on the 13th.

NEW YORK , May 16. A special to the Tribune from Providence , R. I. , says : 111. Rev. Thomas M , Clark , the venerable pre siding bishop of the American house of bishops , htm been much annoyed by the controversy over the Brlggs matter , which he considers most unfortunate. It has brought him a vast amount of correspond ence and many telegrams In regard to a matter over which ho thinks ho has no con trol. trol.Tho The bishop said that he did not see what action ho could take If he was desirous of taking any. The ordination of a priest was entirely a matter of local control. There was a set method of procedure , nnd If it was carried out and the candidate for orders be recommended by the standing commlltee , the bishop of the diocese had no recourse except to ordain the candidate. He thought that Bishop Potter In this case had exercised wise discretion and judgment and that his letter explaining his course was a very clear and convincing document. In these views Bishop McVlcker , the coad jutor , who \\as present , concurred. In answer to nn inquiry whether resolutions might not be pawsed In regard to the mat ter , Bishop McVickcr said : "They can howl it they desire , but that Is all that It can amount to. " Bishop Clark has also been much dis turbed over the Funston matter. Rev. J. B. Funston of Portsmouth , Va. , was to have been consecrated bishop of the diocese of Boise , Idaho , but owing to the protest of eleven bishops , the order for consecration has been cancelled. A special meeting of the house of bishops has been called to meet In St. Louis in October for the elec tion of a bishop for Japan. The Funston matter may bo referred to that convention also by the presiding bishop for action. No other business/can come up except that for which the convention Is called , which would prevent action by the house of bishops should such action be contemplated. In answer to an inquiry as to his views of the modern tendency of clergymen of other denominations who get into trouble with their churches of fleeing to the Bpia- copal church for refuge , Bishop Clark said : "Tho Episcopal church Is very roomy. It B.ttUA | ; II03JOAP | 1SOU1 Otn JO UOtU KUU1U03 ] on many subjects. As long as a man Is able to subscribe to the creeds and Is mor ally nonlmpeachable , he Is generally accept able , and some of the men who have thus far come from other denominations have proved to be very valuable Episcopal clergy men. " Bishop Clark Is now 87 years of ago and the oldest bishop of his denomination In the world. He will not attend the St. Louis convention owing to the great distance. JOHNSON CONCEDES A POINT .Illilll SliimliliHK Ulnck In I lie Way of .Suliof HlriM-t IliilIivayK Ill'lll O Vt'll. DETROIT , Mkh. , May IB. Tom L. John son , as representative of the street railway companies , has conceded ono of the main points of difference which have been block ing the purchase of the roads by the city. The city's commissioners refused to execute any security franchise to Insure payment of the purchase price unless that Instrument provides for present rates of faro on 3-cent as well ns n-cent lines. This concession has now been made. The most Important ques tion remaining at IFSUO Is whether the pro posed thirty-year security fraivhlso shall run from the date of sale or from explratijn of the present franchises , averaging about sixteen years hence. The commissioners assert that they will agree to no franchise extending longer than thirty years from ( into of tno transfer.
