PLAN TO IMPROVE BROADWAY
Park Commissioner Graham 6o ggesU ravin g
a Strip on Eack Side.
CENTER PARKED AND PLANTED TO TREES
Might He Marie a Toll Road aad In
Thla Manner Funds Be Secured
Pave and Keep It la
A. C. Graham of the board of park com
missioners, who realises the necessity of
something being done by the city to Im
prove the condition of West Broadway, be
tween Thirteenth street and the motor com
pany's bridge across the Missouri river,
suggests that a strip fifteen feet wide on
each side of the throughfare be paved and
the remaining portion In the middle of the
street be laid out In parking and planted
with a row of trees. This, Mr. Graham
figures, will be Lh least expensive method
of putting the most important thoroughfare
In the city in proper condition for travel.
While, as Mr. Graham states, part of the
property abutting on Broadway would be
unable to bear even Its share of the cost
of paving a fifteen foot strip, and the cost
would probably full on the city, something
will have to be done and whatever Is done,
he city will undoubtedly have to stand the
greater part of the cost
Mr. Graham also suggests the proposition
of making a toll road of West Broadway.
This he contends could be accomplished by
special act of the legislature, as West
Broadway is to all Intents and purposes
an interstate rotul, being the main thor
oughfare between Council Bluffs and Oma
ha. Mr. Graham favors the imposition of
a 5 cent toll and believes that persons who
use the road, especially those who do heavy
hauling, would have no objection to paying
such a toll, which would be used In keep
ing the road in proper condition.
According to Mr? Graham's suggestion the
toll keeper would bo placed at the east
approach to the motor company's bridge
and toll only collected from" those who cross
that point. This plan would not force the
pay nent of the toll by persons driving on
the road who did not cross the bridge. In
the event of the legislature passing an
act authorizing the making of a toll road
of this thoroughfare, Mr. Graham points
out that the city would be able to anti
cipate Its revenue from the tolls and bor
row a sufficient sum to place the road at
once In proper condition for travel.
Mr. Graham held a conference with May
or Morgan on the subject of the improve
meit of West Broadway yesterday and It
Is .IHely his suggestions will be laid before
the city council at Its next meeting. At the
next meeting of the city council City En
gineer Etnyre is expected to make a re
port on the probable cost of paving a strip
down the center of the road.

FRANCHISE FOR EJ-ECTRIC LINE
Roate Is Found by Which Interurbnn
Can Get Into Center of
"When the city council meets next Mon
day night the Council Bluffs, Tabor &
Southern Electrlo Railway company will
come before It with a request for a fran
chise to enter this city." This wns the
statement yesterday morning of W. J.
Dobbs of Tabor, president of the company.
According to President Dobbs aie. Mal
colm Green, representatives of the eastern
firm floating the company's bonds, a feasi
ble route Into the city has been decided
upon. Messrs. Doblis and Green have been
In the city on and off for the last two
weeks, looking over the ground and plan
ning on the route to be followed Into the
city, and the ordinance to be submitted to
the'counell next Monday night Is now being
drafted by local attorneys. The ordinance,
if approved by the city council, will have
to be submitted to the people of Council
Bluffs for approval at either a special or
the regular city election In March next.
While the promoters of the new line have
found that the streets of the city are
pretty well covered by the franchises under
which the Omaha Council Bluffs Street
Railway company is operating, they are of
the opinion that a practicable route is still
open for their line to enter the city and
reach the business part thereof. The orig
inal proposition to enter the city In the
western part has been abandoned, this
route having been opposed by the executive
committee of the Commercial club and the
business men of the city generally. It Is
now proposed to enter on South avenue,
coming from Manawa. and skirting the
base of the bluffs In the vicinity of the
Iowa School for the Deaf, the route sug
gested and recommended by the executive
committee of the Commercial club.
From South avenue the line will turn
Into Story street and from Story Into Main
street at some point north of the Jnnctlon
with Pearl. The line woild then proceed
north on Main street to Washington
avenue, turning west at the Washington
Avenue school and proceed as far west
possibly as Eighth street. Another route
has been suggested on Fourth street to
Broadway, and this may possibly be
adopted as the most practicable of the two.
The freight depot," aecording to present
plans. Is to be located on South avenue

filling up on fire water ran amuck In a
saloon on South Main ntreet. where he
flourished a big bowle knife and tried to

order by placing a revolver in his face.
The half breed refused to hold up his
hands and Instead reached for his knife.
Deciding to take no' chances the officer
gave the half breed a rap over the head

of General Drake have made arrangements
for a meeting on Christmas day at Savan
nah, Ga., when It Is arranged that the fam
ily will determine what shall be done by
the estate toward assisting Drake uni
versity. Dr. Sawyers la quoted as saying
that it Is the Intention of the family, not
withstanding the will, to provide more
liberally for the university than Is pro
vided in the will. The. gift from the estate
will not bo confined to the $50,000 be
queathed. Some qijewtjon - has been raised
as to the regulalt and legality of the
will, but It la bvlleved that none of the

BROOKLYN ACADEMY BURNS
Largest of City's Theaters Consumed
at Loss of Over
NEW YORK, Nov. 30. The historic
Academy of Music, the largest ttuater In
Brooklyn, was completely consumed today
by a fire which is believed to have been
caused by an explosion In the building.
For a time the flames threatened adjoining
property, and when the roof fell part of It
struck a saloon building adjoining, but
fortunately no one was hurt, although the
saloon wns destroyed. The loss was esti
mated at I3W.0O0.
The fire started in' the scenery on the
stage of the theater, where a number of
men were preparing for the testimonial
dinner to StatJ Senator McCarren, to be
given there tonight. For some unknown
reason the fire department was tardy In
arriving on the scene and It was fully flf-
teen minutes before it had a stream on the
building. It wns then discovered that the
water could be carried scarcely half way
up to the roof. Within half an hour after
the discovery of the fire the entire building
was a roaring furnace and the firemen
were bending all their efforts to raving
the surrounding property.
The academy, which was an antiquated
building, constructed in 1S00, of brick, sand,
stone and wood, offered no resistance to

Later It was reported that a boy who was
