A telegram from Senator Pujey yesterday
announced that there was no possibility of
securing the passage of the special bill al
lowing counties to make appropriations of
$5,000 and less for exhibits at the Transmla-
s'eslppl Exposition , and one source of In
come that was looked forward to by the
Council Bluffs Exposition committee with
considerable confidence has been effectually
closed. The bill would have been pushed
through the legislature long ago had It not
been for the fear that Its Introduction would
have Interfered with the appropriation for
the Iowa exhibit. Both houss had been
carefully canvassed and the fact ascertained
that a large majority of the uicmb're would
have voted for the measure. It was alee
ascertained that a large number of counties
throughout the state would hive taken ad
vantage of It and Installed oxpenslva and at
tractive exhibits. The opponents of the ex-
pcg'.tlon measure were aware of the situa
tion and purposely delayed the general ap
propriation In the hope that the friends of
the special bill would not be able to over
come their Impatience and would Introluce it.
There would have been no opposition to Its
passage , but It would have effectually killed
the appropriation. Senator I'uiey was urged
to make the effort to get It before the Iega- :
lature , and when he returned to Des Molncs
on Tuesday tc promised to tike It up at
once and Jf there WES any chance for Its
enactment to push It through. His telegram
yesterday simply stated that owing to the
fact that the legislature was on the eve of
. adjournment and the great mass of unfinished
business on hand It would be Impossible to
secure any consideration for a new measure.
The result Is disappointing to the local
association , but not at all discouraging.
Enough money la In sight to build the wig
wam. The appropriation that was practically
assured from the county would have been
of material assistance In the work The
changed situation will not call for any ma
terial ixodlflcatlon of the original plans for
raising the money necessary to pay for the
bg ! building. Three floors will be placed In
the structure , and the space leased to ex
hibitors. Enough applications have been re
ceived to make a fund that will go a long
way toward defraying the cost of the build
ing. One new proposition comes from a
maker of pumps and windmills , who offers to
furnish the power necessary to operate the
hydraulic elevator that a local firm has of-
fere to Instill. The proposition will probably
be considered at the meeting of the associa
tion at the Grand hotel this evening.

Democratic success at the school and city
elections this spring has encouraged them 4o
believe tbat the county can be as easily
carried next fall. But to do this an organ
Is necessary , hence the revival of the Glebe
Is a ratural proceeding. The democratic
city administration will throw all of the
city pitronage to the local democratic paper ,
diverting It from the republican organ that
has enjoyed It so long. This patronage Is
an Important factor In ( he financial .affair ?
of the democratic organ , and If the party
should get a slice of the county patronage ,
also the paper could subsist very comfort
ably. Arrangements have not been com
pleted , but It Is likely that the paper will
bo started up again within a few days.

"There will be no contest for possession
of the offlco of city engineer , " said Sam
Etnyre , 'the ' newly elected official , yesterday.
'There will bo no occasion for a contest on

morning. If It can be shown that I am not
citizen of Council 'Bluffs ' , and , therefore ,
not eligible to the office , I will at once re-
The question of my eligibility , so far
as It pD.-talnti to my citizenship. Is one that
can bo cosily settled. I have been a citizen
and voter In Council iBluffs for nearly ten
ycara , and there has never been a moment

sider myself as such. But yet I say with
all sincerity. If It can be shown that I
im not a citizen I will avoid any necessity
'or ' contesting by promptly resigning tbe
office to which I have Just been elected. "
The poll books of the First precinct of the
fourth ward show that Mr. Etnyre has been
registered for a number of years , that hla
number Is 127 , and that he voted at the
election on Monday , presumably a straight
democratic vote. The story that ho had
not registered was true In a sense. He dlJ
not register for tbe reason that bis name
was already on the poll books. Mr. Tostevln

of a contest , that he was fairly and clearly

DES MOINBS , March 30. ( Special To1 > -
gram. ) Senator Hobart won a great victory
today for the Cherokee asylum. In the fore
noon the house defeated the senate bill ,
which carried $100.000. This was by a vote
of 44 to 42. In the afternoon a motion to
reconsider was carried. A now presentation
was made of the matter and the bill passed ,
57 to 33. Hobart had about half the sen
ators on the house floor lobbying for the
measure and It went through easily. The
appropriation for the DCS Molues Benedict
Home , $10,000 , had been amended by the
house to give $1,000 to the Woman's and Ba
bies' homo ot Sioux City an J $1,000 to a llko
Institution at Dubuquc. The Ecnate refused
o accept the amendment and the house re
ceded. The Sioux City and Dubuque homes
The bill to sell to the city of Dos Molncs
a site for a city library for $15,000 was
amended In the senate. The house refused
to accept the amendments and the bill will
> robably go to conference tomorrow In the
: Ioslng hours , with a good chance of final
ietvJat by disagreement. The senate accepted
the bouse amendment to the Soldiers' home
appropriation bill to give $15,000 for a bulld-
ng for aged and Infirm people. The house had
turned down the recommendation of the ap-
iroprlatlon committee and Inserted this pro
vision and the senate , after a vigorous fight
did the same.
The bill to fix the state revenues for the
ilennlal period passed. It Instructs the
executive council to make each levy as will
produce $1,600,000 In 1809 and $1,500,000 In
LOOO. This Is $200,000 more for each year
than was levied for the lest biennial period.
It la estimated that the state levy will
reach very nearly 3 mills In order tc
produce these amounts , but that they will
pay the slate debt during the period.
The senate had a long fight over the reso
lution to reduce salaries of state house em
ployes. It was passed to engrossment , there
not being a large enough majority to suo-
pcnd the rules and Jiais it. It will pass the
senate tomorrow , but Is likely to be killed
In the house , where the employes have been
lobbying all day against It. The speaker
at ono time threatened to clear the chamber
unices the lobbyls's made lees nohv.
The senate passed a pardon resolution fo ;
Theodore Bushlck of Mills county and
Bernary Kennedy of Dubuque , both serving
life sentences for murder. The Buahlcli
pardon ID expected to meet defeat In the
liouse , while the Kennedy meature has al
ready passed that body. .
The house concurred Ip the resolution < c
adjourn tomorrow atnoon. The house passed
the following senate appropriation bills
Agricultural college , for carpenter shops
$5,000 ; traveling library , annually , $2,000
state veterinary , annually , $5,000 ; to pay
New Orleans claims , ' $12,000. ,
The senate , passed a resolution already
passed by the house , ' directing the railroad
commissioners to make a detailed Investi
gation ot tbo question of-'coal ' rates In Iowa.
It Is explained that coal dealers In Iowa
have for a year been claiming that they
could not get rates on which they could com
pete with Illinois miners , and that the state' :
business had greatly suffered as a result
The senate passed the , Hobart resolution foi
a commission to Investigate the county In

The senate passed house appropriation bill :

and soft brown eyts. Hla name , ho said

What aeed Is there of this guard ? " I
"Insurgents , " was his reply as he looked
out of the car window. "Thero are a good
many In this vicinity , " he continued. "We
have to guard all trains. "
Hardly were the words out of his month
when the car came to a stop with a crash
that sent half Its occupants sprawling on
the floor. Away uhead from the middle of
, the train a big puff of white smoke arose
close to the right hand sldo of the track.
Someone caught a glimpse of the colored
brakenxm from the car ahead. 'He was noth
ing more than a streak flying through space
to the embankment at the side of the track.
The heavy armored car was not as badly
. shaken up by the crash as the light passca-
gor coach In front of It.
Each soldier Instantly grabbed his rifle and
pointed It through one of the narrow shoot
ing slots In the side of the car. The lieuten
ant staggered to his feet before the train
had really stopped quivering. "Your Insur
gents , " he said to me as he stepped from
the car to the ground. The Americaa relief
train was a pitiable sight. The locomotive
and forward cars had gone on ahead some
two miles up the track. The third car , 'N. ' P.
A. 212 , was a heap of kindling wood and
corn meal , piled In a shapeless mass at the
left sldo of the track. Three other splintered ,
scratched cars were Ijlng zigzagged across
the track , while their trucks were piled up
In the ditch alongside.
Then Mr. Klopsch and Lieutenant Ruble
began making a search of the cause where
the wrecked car had stood. The track was
badly torn , the tics were splintered and the
ballast between them had been lifted out and
lay scattered on both sides of the rails. The
: lieutenant folded his arms and looked at the
torn roadbed. " . "
, .Dynamite , was Ma only
; comment. Ho called to his men. That Span
ish grin was on their faces still as they
stared first at the wreck aod then at the
Americans. "Bomts , bombs , " they said to
each other. That told the story.
Someone had placed a dynamite cartridge
on the track to 'blow up the next freight
that might pass. The country near Qlenaga
and Bejucal Is full of Insurgent bands , mam
of whom have arrived In that part of the
country only very recently. The regulai
presence , of Spanish soldiers on the trains
would be enough of a motive for the act
that wrecked the American relief train
Lieutenant Hublo pasted two sentinels on
the roof of the
passenger coach and
ber around the train. Although they barely
neaped1 with their liven , the soldiers merely
pulled the brims of their Panama hats down
over their yellow faces and stood sentry
duty while the sun beat down from the sky
in a way that would have wilted an Amer-
Jean soldier In half an hour.
Three hundred yards from the wreck waa
the cottage of a Cuban peasant. He had
seen the explosion and came running down
iWriiCk ? < Tee of hla elght children

terrible. . ? "Si ? ' The exP108' ' ° n was terrible ,
Then , as he realized ho was
speaking to Americans , said : "Americanos-
ah , senorcs , the explosion was not meant
for you. " Then In a whisper. "I am a Cu
: ban , my house Is at your disposal. "
The party followed to his little one-story
cottage , or hut , that was not unlike an old
New York house In Chinatown. On the
' porch In front Jie served breakfast and coffee
to his friends , the Americans. Like every
thing else that lives nowadays In Cuban
fields , he and his entire family were hungry
looking and amaclated. iMr. Klopsch al
lowed him to take a barrel of codflsh and
ccrnmeal from the stores In the wrecked

Meanwhile the engineer had gone to Rul-
con , five miles an ay , < o telegraph to Havana
for Msstftance. Lieutenant Ruble had at the
tame time notified the commandant of the
district of the wreck. Whfn ho returned
with hla reply from the commandant Lieu
tenant Itublo was much more silent and dis
tant toward the Americans than before. Ho
whispered something to his men. They
would have nothing more to say about the
wreck after that , except It might have been
caused by faulty construction. They evi
dently did not like to admit that there were
enough Insurgents near them to do so much
Later came the wreckers and by 4 o clock
In the afternoon the Hack had been cleared.
Only about half a dozen barrels of cornmeal
had been entirely destroyed. The remainder
was transferred to ono of the other cars.
The wrecked car was left where It bad fal
len , a heap of splintered kindling wood.
Another start was made and a half hour
later the train lolled Into Bejucal , where
twenty tons of cornmeal were rolled off Into
the dusty road.
It would be hard to Imagine a more dreary ,
desolate nort than struggling Bejucal. As I
walked through the unpaved streets , Amtonlo
Pomla of the local relief committee pointed
nut half a dozen blackened , crumbling walls
that had only a short time ago been the
principal buildings of the town. Each one
of them was the result of a recent foray of
the Insurgents. In time of peace Dejucal has
3.000 Inhabitants , but now Its population baa
been Increased by 2,600 rcconcentrartos who
have been driven Into It. Hundreds of them
have died of starvation and disease. Mr.
Klopsch vlalted n number of the sheds where
rcconccntrados live. Everywhere , the name
old story , war , Spanish cruelty and star
Lieutenant Hublo , with arms folded across
tils breast listened while one bent , hungry
old man. through an Interpreter told his story
to Mr. Klopsch ; how ho bad owned n com
fortable little farm that he had expected to
leave to his children , but Spanish soldiers
had come and driven blm Into Ilejucal.
Lieutenant Ilublo scowled \\hllo the old man
wao telling his story. His manner towards
the American party underwent a marked
change after that. When Mr. Klopsch Invited
him to a cup of coffee In a little Uejucal
cafe he bowed politely , but said with a man
ner that was truly Spanish : "I regret , Scnor ,
that I can accept nothing of an American. "
It was Ions utter dark before the returni
trip to Havana was begun. Midway between
Bejucal and Clmja long streaks of light be
gan to light up the westMti horizon. Lieuten
ant Ilublo was on the platform In a minute.
"Insurgents again , " he said wearily. The
Insurgents were burnlcig cano fields. For
more than three miles the path of ttio train
wa.j lighted by cine of the fires that Is re
ducing this beautiful island to a heap of
ashes. Death , narrow fy escaped by dyna
mite explosion , starving reconcontrndos ,
