IOWA MILK INSPECTOR TALKS
Say Dairymen, Not Cows, Most Re
sponsible for Impure Milk.
I Council Uiutts. U., July 29. Dr. O.
Thompson. Iowa state milk in-
pector, arrived in Council Bluffs and
will spend several days visiting the
local dairies In company with Deputy
Milk Inspector Smith.
"There Is lots of misapprehension
about tuberculosis cows and their poi
soned milk," said Dr. Thompson. "I
have little or no faith in the efficacy
of pasteurization unless it be done at
once, and then It is of doubtful util
ity. We have clearly established this
fact. The cow Is the least responsible
for tuberculosis germs in milk. We
have tested hundreds of cows react
ing to the tuberculosis test and found
cows seriously affected giving pure
milk, but the eliminated waste mate
rial from every animal thus affected
was found to be swarming with the
germs- The dairymen put the germs
pnto the milk, not the cow. We have
shown that only 6 per cent of tubercu
losis In human beings comes from
milk that has been Infected by cows.
The dairymen are responsible for the
other 96 per cent. And this Is why
the state of Iowa Is now going after
Its dairymen so vigorously We are
going to have clean dairies or put every
milk producer out of the business. All
of the Infection comes through filthy
carelessness, that would make the
users of milk shudder If they knew

ISSUES STATEMENT AT LINCOLN
Says Efforts Have Not 3een in Vain,
as Initiative and Keferendum Are
in Eoth of the Platforms Urges
Optionists to Get Buy in All Legis
Lincoln, July 29. W. J. Bryan will
continue the contest for county option.
He Issued the following statement:
"While the lailure ot the Democratic
convention to indorse county option
was disappointing, still the fight for
county option in the Democratic party
has not been in vain. In the first
place It has helped to secure a decla
ration in favor of the initiative and
referendum In both parties, and now
that all parties have declared for it
there Is no doubt of the necessary
amendment being submitted at the
next session of the legislature.
"The Populist party declared for
county option two years ago, and it
was to be expected that It would de
clare for It again. The work now to
be done Is to secure county option
candidates la every senatorial and
representative district. The Demo
crats who favor county option should
turn out at the primaries and noml
nate a candidate favorable to county
option. The Republicans in favor of
county option should be as active In
securing the nomination of Republican
candidates favorable to county option.
County option candidates should be
nominated by all parties In each dis
trict, and ! have no doubt that this
can be done in a great many districts
If the Democratic convention had In
dorsed county option the Issue would
have been eliminated from our cam
paign for state officers, congressmen
mid senator. But even as It Is it will
not be a controlling factor except In
the case of governor. There Is no
reason why anyone's vote for other
state officers should be Influenced by
the attitude of the candidate on the
question of county option, and there
Is no reason why we should not vote
for our congressmen with a view to
securing representation on national

Father Point, Que., July 29. A wire-
less message was received here from

fication of the two passengers aboard
the steamer Montrose, suspected to be
Dr. Hawley Harvey Crlppen and his

sociated Press from the operator

the fact that they answer to the police
description sent broadcast, nothing
definite concerning their Identity
seems to be known.
Other messages fished out of the air
were addressed to Quebec, Montreal
and Ottawa. The authenticity of soma
of them was denied, but all were In the
same tenor Indicating a growing con
viction that the world wide hunt for
Dr. Crlppen Is at last nearlng Its end'.

Burt and Washington Assessors
Object to Douglas Method.
Lincoln, July 29. Morton C. Grover
of Washington county and Frank Han
sen of Burt county, both county as
sessors, appeared before the state
board of equalization and protested
against the method of assessing banks
In Douglas county. They alleged that
some banks In Douglas county listed'
their property for assessment on
blanks used by the state board for
last year, which provided for a deduc
tion on account of accrued and unpaid
interest on time certificates, and also
for additions on account of accrued
and uncollected Interest on bills re
celvable. It Is alleged some banks
made deductions, but made no addi
tions. The blanks sent out by the
state board this year make no pro
vision for these deductions.
It was also alleged the county board
In Douglas county made a reduction of
3 per cent In bank valuations on loans
on account, of poor paper. The state
board will write to every county as
sessor In the state to ascertain the
methods used throughout the stnte,
and If It deems It necessary will call
upon the Douglas county assessor for
Attorney's Application for Reinstate.
