Ho explained that next year , owing to th
reduction In the assessed valuation of th
city , the Income of the library would be tna
terlally reduced. The 1 mill levy , ho llg
ured , would bring In next year but little
tlo over $3,000 and this sum , whlc
would barely pay the rent , salaries of libra
rlan and assistants and other expenses , woul
certainly leave no margin for the purchas
of new books. The matter was Informal !
discussed and several suggestions were mad
by different members of the board , bu
nothing definite was arrived at. A sugges

the hands of the trustees was one mad
by M. F. Rohrcr. Ho suggested that th
trustees petition the city council to ad
an extra story to the city hall bulldtn
on Bryant street , to make a permanent horn
for the library. Under the present stat
law Council Bluffs cannot levy a tax for th
purpose of erecting a library building , thi
privilege being only granted to cities wit

NEW YORK , Oct. 10. A dispatch to th <
Herald from Washington says : The Unltei
States may submit a diplomatic protest t (
Spain through the French government
against its action 'In sending a Spanish aux
iliary cruiser loaded with arms and'ammuni
tion to' the Philippines. In any event , tlt <
matter is under consideration and It Is bo-
Moved has been called to the attention ol
the American commissioners In Paris. Th <
cruiser In question Is the Buenos Ayres , be
longing to the Spanish auxiliary navy , whlcl
Admiral Dewey reported to the Navy depart
ment several days ago as due to arrive a
Singapore , Straits Settlements , on Octobe :
13. It Is appreciated by the authorities tha1
Spain has tbo same right in the eyes o
international law to send reinforcements t (
the Philippines as this government has , am
any protest made would be of the most diplo
matic character and simply designed to mak (
It plain that Iho continuance ) of the voyage
of the Buenos Ayrcs is objectionable. Or
the other hand , a member of the cablnei
said the Philippines , with the exception 01
Manila , are In the nominal possession ol
Spain and that It Is Its undoubted priv
ilege. If it deems it advisable to do so , tc
send troops to the eastern Islands to subtlm
any Insurrection that may occur. Another
member of the cabinet , Nvho talked the mat
ter over with the president , admitted thai
Spain has the moral right to dispatch rein
forcements to the Philippines , but as the
forces of this government are In control , It
Is within its authority to prevent such re
inforcements reaching their destination ,
However , It is not expected that the matter
will go beyond a protest If it goes that far.
From the dispatches received from Chair
man Day , the authorities are still of tbo opin
ion that the work of the peace commission
will bo completed before congress meets. Mr.
Day takes quite an optimistic vluw of the
situation. It Is his desire to limit the tlmo
of discussion of the various points raised as
much as possible , In order that the negotia
tions may reach an early conclusion. Information
mation which has been received here shows
conclusively that Spain has no further hope
of foreign Interference and this fact leads
tbo authorities to believe that It will not
attempt to drag the negotiations out as long
as It would If It believed there was a cbanco
of any European government attempting to
secure a modification of the American terms.
