INTO BELL COMPANY BUILDING JV'rrr Arrntiiremmt Expected to Ilrlnw to City I.nrsre Force of Men Who Will Ilecoine) Itrsltlents. A business deal that means much to Council Uluffs nnd western Iowa has been brought about. Tho Iowa Telephone company, tho Roll organization that owns or controls nil of the telephone exchanges of tho state, with the exception of tho Nebraska organization In Potlawattainlo county, has determined upon a new pol icy of business management Hnd has dis tricted the state Into tho western Iowa central Iowa and eastern Iowa districts. It has chosen Council Bluffs us the head quarters of tho western district. Tho tel ephone exchange building on South Main street, formerly used as the tcntral sta tion pf the Independent Tolophone com pany, has been leased and wuo formally taken possession of ycRtcrdny. The new arrangement concentrates all of tho managerial business of the Iowa company in tho western part of the state at Council Bluffs and will bring r num ber of high-salaried omployca hero with their families. Tho Iowa company has reorganised Its business along the same linos that have been successfully followed by the Ne braska Telephone company, Tho western Iowa district will comprise Sioux City, tho largest exchange In the northwestern port of the state, and Re4 Oak, the largest In tho southwestern. It will also Include all of tho Bell ex changes In the western third ot the state, with the slnglo exception cf Council Illuffs and Pottawattamlo county. This territory belongs to tho Nebraska com pany and will not bo Inlerfercd with. The wholo general supervision of the district will be placed In '.he hands of tho district manager located at Council Bluffs. The cholco of a manager lay between a Council Bluffs man connected with the Nebraska company and a Eloux City man. It Is said that the Bell company was reluctant to give up Its Council Bluffs young man, who has mado good, and the Iowa company chose the Sioux City man, who had the advantage ot age, experience and long connection with tho company, HIb nomo was nit dlsolosed last evening and may not be urtll he ar rives here about Saturday to take charge of tho business. It Is now known that the refusal of the Nebraska Telephone company to sell the Main street building to the Commer cial club at the price offered was duo to the changes then contemplates by which a permanent leaso could be made to the Iowa Telephone company. Grand Jury Reports Indictments and Quits Tho grand Jury made Us final report for the March term of district court yes terday afternoon and wns discharged. Five Indictments were returned, throe of which were mode public All of the men. Indicted are now in the county Jail. Frank Miller, alias Malo vltch, was Indicted for robbing the Clark Mercantile company, 3403 West Broad way, on the night of April SO. Goods to the amount of about $250 were taken and about $1C0 worth later found In the pos session of (Malovltch In Omaha, where hs was trying to sell them. J. A. Smythe, an Omaha man, was in dicted for uttering a forged Instrument April 16 he started in to unload a num ber of forged checks to which he had at tached the name of the Z. T. Jones Transfer company. Each one was for $10 and purported to b endorsed by J. Will lams of 60S Washington avenue. Charles Hansen, one of tho tornado vlc tlms, whoso head seemed to have been, turned by his experiences In the storm, was Indicted for malicious threats to ex tort. April 6 he threatened Charles Deltchler with arrest upon tho charge of theft unless he paid $26 as a bribe. Ho also posed as a deputy United States marshal and has been held for foderal court Indictment upon that chargo also. It appeared that Hansen discovered Deltchler removing a refrigerator from the premises ot Mrs. Nunas and con ceived the idea that he had no right to do so and seized upon the incident as a pretext to extort money. Mrs. Nunas had employed Deltohlor to take away tho refrigerator and so testified before the grand Jury. Kty to the Situation Bee Advertising. LEGAL NOTICES. PROPOSALS FOR CLOTHINO.

Cliff Sterrett EAGLES OPENNEW BUILDING Fine Structure Dedicated with Elaborate Ceremony. THROWN OPEN TO THE PUBLIC General O. M. Dodsre Makes Prin cipal Address, In Which II Bays Fraternatlsm Dominant idea In Building Up of West. The dedication and formal opening; of the Eagles' new building was begun yes terday and will continue until Friday evening, when the continuous program will conclude with a banquet to the mem bers, with Judge Walter I. Smith as toastmaster. It will be one of the most elaborate banquets ot the year and wilt last from 8 until 12 o'clock. The ceremonies began early yesterday and did not end until midnight. The building wns thrown open to the public all day, and throughout tho day there was a continuous throng of peoplo com ing and going. There were no portions of the building that were closed to vis itors. All were Impressed with the de gree ot elegance ot a- refined naturo and the permanency of everything, from the polished hardwood floors to the massive and enduring furnishings. The afternoon was devoted to the for mal public reception and the dedicatory excrolscs. J. J. Hughes was master of ceremonies. The dedication ot the build ing at 8:50 o'clock embraced very simple ceremonies, partly prescribed by the rit ual. Tho chief address was mado by Gen eral Granville M. Dodge. Tho general was In one of his most delightful reminis cent moods and gave a graphlo history of tho spot upon which' the building stood, covering a period ot mors than titty years. This naturally led to an out line of the early history of Council Bluffs, beginning with the string of Spanish settlements throughout the west long beforo the great Mississippi valley became the property of the French. Traces History of West. He traced the known history down to the time of the Lewis and Clark expedi tion up the Missouri river In 1894, and their council vwlth the Indiana In tho hills that had even then become known as "the council bluffs," on throughout the period when the government established Its first military post here, before 1835, and end ing with details of soma ot the stirring Incidents that came under his personal observation connected with the fight of the brave pioneers to conquer the wilder ness. General Dodge happily concluded with pointing out the Influence traumatism has had upon the development of the country. He declared fraternatlsm to ba the distinctive twentieth oentury impulse and saw in it the practical realisation of the fundamental teachings ot the Master the brotherhood of man. Another pubtla reception was held in tho evening, concluding with a ball. Handsome Structure. The building' is admitted to be the handsomest nnd best equipped Eagles' building In the west It has cost ap proximately $00,000, and has not a cent of debt. It has arisen on the site of & number of nondescript frame buildings and a one-story brick livery stable. The work ot tearing away theso old buildings was begun In 1911, but actual work of construction of the new structure was not commenced until May 1, 1913. Thern are even yet soma slight finishing touches to be mode but on April 10 the Eagles held their first meeting- In the lodge room. This is one ot the largest and most beautiful halls In the city, with a vaulted celling thirty feet above the floor.
