RECEIVER FOR WATERWORKS
E. W. Hart, Hanayer tt the Com
pany, Named a the Receiver.
HALF MILLION OF BONDS DUE
rtecelferstilp Blocks Effort of Coaacll
to Itedure Water Rates, but Has
Jin Effect on Proposal to
Build Municipal riant.
Tha Council Bluffs City Water Works
company haa gone Into the hands of a re
ceiver, B. W. Hart, manager of the com
pany for nearly twenty years, haa been
appointed receiver and yesterday filed his
bond in the gum of 150,009.
Tha placing of the company In tha hand
of a receiver was made on tha application
of tha Farmers' Loan and Trust company
of New York City, trustee for tha holders
of tl.a first Issue of bonds of tha company,
amounting to tWO.OW.
Tha petition of tha Farmer Loan and
Treat oomrany waa filed on Monday of
this week tn tha United States circuit
court In this city by Hall tt Stout of Om
aha attorneys for the Farmers' Loan and
Trust company, hut pending th appoint
ment of a receiver, was not made public
until yesterday afternoon.
The order appointing Mr. TTart as re
ceiver was made Tuesday at Kansas City
by Judge Smith McFherson and waa placed
on record in the court here yosterday. The
appointment of Mr. Hart aa receiver was
agreed tipon by the trust company and
the water warka company. Under the order
of his appointment Receiver Hart Is vested
with full authority to conduct the man
agement of tha business of the company
as he hid heretofore.
Iteaaoa for necelverehlp.
The petition of the Farmera' Loan and
Trust company Is a document of between
thirty and forty pages of typewritten mat
ter. It asks for tha appointment oi a re
ceiver on the alleged grounds that the
Water Works company 1s Insolvent and
that the bonds for which the trust company
is trustee are past due and unpaid. These
bonds became due about the time of the ex
piration of the company", franchise, over
two years sgo.
Closely following the filing of the petition
of the Farmers Loan and Trust company,
the answer of the Water Works company
was placed on record by George 8- Wright,
local attorney for the company, and all the
papers in the case were taken by him to
Kansas City and submitted to Judge Mc
pherson, who granted the application erf
the trust company and made the appoint
ment of Mr. Hart as receiver. Mr. Wright
returned from Kansas City yesterday morn
ing, the bond of Mr. Hart waa prepared
and filed and the appointment of a receiver
for the company then made public. The
formality of dispossessing Mr. Hart as
manager and reinstalling him In charge as
receiver was gone through yesterday after
In its answer tha Council Bluffs City
Water Works company denies that It Is In
solvent, except that It admits Its Inability
at this tlmti to take up the $500,000 bonds
Issued by it.
The action looking towards the appoint
ment of a receiver, Mr. Wright said, had
been brought at the request of a majority
of the bondholders.
Blocks Jlew "Water Rates.
The appointment of a receiver by the
United 8tate court takes the company en
tirely out of the Jurisdiction of the state
courts, but the receivership does not In any
way affect the action of the city In regard
to the proposed issuance f $600,000 water
works bonds or the construction of the pro.
posed municipal water plant.
"The filing of the receivership proceed
ings in the United States court on Monday,"
said Mr. Wright yesterday, "gave that court
Jurisdiction of the matter before the meet
ing of the city council Monday night, when
the new water rates ordlnsnce was intro
duced. The sppolntment of a receiver by
the United States court takes the comrany
wholly out of the Jurisdiction of the state
courts, and the city council now has no
power to fix ratea for the company or to
do anything to interfere with the manage
ment of Its affal-s by the receiver."
"The business of the water works pom
psny will continue to be administered by
Mr. Hart, but now under the direction and
control of the federal court," continued Mr.
Wright. "If the city should finally decide
not to build a municipal plant and should
decldo to grant a water works franchise,
the receivership would make It possible to
clear up the affairs of the company and
effect a reorganisation more speedily than
If It did not exist."
City SWicltnr Clem F. Kimball doea not
agree with Attorney Wright as to the city
council not having the power to fix rates
for the company now thaC the company is1
under the Jurisdiction of the federal court.
He said: "The regulation of rates Is a
legislative action on the rart of the city
council and I question whether the court
would have the light to interfere with such
sction. It certslnly could not Interfere vntll
the council has made the rates and then
only on a proper showing thst the rates
so made by the city council were unreason
able. The city still has the same power to
fix rates that It had before the company
went Into the hands of a receiver. Of
course, the receiver might file such a show
ing that the new rates contemplated by the
ordinance now before- the council are un
reasonable, that the court would Issue an
Injunction restraining the city from en
forcing the ratea, but the mere fact of the
receivership would not make it possible to
compel consumers to keep on paying a rate
that waa unreasonable, and the question
whether the rates are unreasonable can
only be determined now In the same man
ner aa they would have been determined
had there been no appointment of a re
ceiver." Mr. Kimball said that the city's claim for
recovery of hydrsnt rental alleged to have
been excessive and unreasonable, would
probably now be filed In the federal court,
but that if a purchase of the company's
plant were finally negotiated a claim of
thta character would probably be merged
In any settlement which might ultimately

CLEARING DAMAGE BY EXPLOSION
Te.ts Reins Made to See Where Ga

the smell of gas was atlll very noticeable
at the manholes. The tests, Mr. English
stated, would be continued until the leak.

The Omaha Bee has planned to publish 'The Story of Nebraska," not
the story of the prairie schooner, the sod house, the trapper or the fur trader,
but of prosperous, progressive, busy, up-to-the-minute Nebraska. Many
of the new and some of the older settled counties have been making prog
ress so quietly that the world at large is not aware of their achievements.
Our object is to bring all loyal and progressive citizens into closer touch in the commercial and social
relations, and to work for the development of the natural resources of the state, to foster and build up
manufacturing industries, and by every consistent effort encourage the employment of skilled labor and
improve the conditions of the laboring classes. The story will give only a glimpse, a mere outline. The
reader will be shown among the print just enough to give him a general idea of the state. Its opportuni
ties to the dairyman, and its openings to the home maker. The free rural mail box and the telephone pole
arc crowding the frontier. The wolf and the wilderness have retreated. If during her early history Ne
braska has surprised her own people, surely a brighter future awaits them.
There will be a little about the towns and cities, just now somewhat
misunderstood and misjudged, and something about the rural districts, the
farm and the stock ranch. Here and there will be found a few figures, not
many, just a few, as measurements and for the information of those who
enjoy such things.
It will tell the achievements of a people, who in less than half a century have wrotight ont of a
boundless prairie a progressive, productive state. It will give in brief the new life in the new country,
the swift passing of events, the possibilities of advancement and pleasure. These articles will be fully illus
trated and will appear in the Sunday Bee from week to week.
Next Sunday Johnson County.

his own plight, ho realised what a failure
his life had been. He determined to try
the better way. His change of heart was
worked out within himself. It required no
evangelistic services to help him. On the
wall of the saloon was an advertisement
of the Central Church of Christ Inviting
all to attemt. It was signed by Rev. Finis
Idleman. So Marsh went to the preacher

trict It developed that the committee had
not found aa much to encourage them as
had been expected and some things were
at least a little disconcerting. Still tho
committee feels that If Colonel Hepburn Is
willing for the contest to proceed he would
be victorious. But Colonel Hepburn made
it very plain to his friends In the district
that under no circumstances would he per
mit the contest to go on If It were to hinge,
on technicalities. Ho wanted a fair re
count, believing that If an error were made
In the first count It was because of a dif
ference In Judgment as to what constituted
a party ballot rather than any Intimation
of fraud. The committee decided to send
Its findings to htm for Inspection before
proceeding, though to protect hla Interests
In tho meantime notice of tne contest waa
filed. But there Is a possibility that the
contest may be dropped. Colonel Hepburn
has been much opposed to It from the first

his friends In the district that he consented.
