Burglars Get Little Cash, Three Checki

Tb Mft In th offlc of the Eagl laundry,
T24 Waat Broadway, was blown open early
yesterday morning. The burglars secured
$4.60 In cash, three 'checks and several
valuable papers belonging to the proprietor
f the Uundrr, W. L. DourIsm. As John
Smith, the patrolman on the West Broad
way beat, tn making his last round at 4
a. m., noticed the light burning in ths
office and everything apparently all right,
the police are of the opinion that the safe
blowers got In their work between thst
hour and 6 o'clock. That the safe had been
blown was not discovered until the em
ployes went to work about T o'clock.
The safe blowers secured entrance to
the office through an unfastened side
window. Indications are ,tbat they took
time at the Job and took every precaution
possible to deaden the sound of the ex
plosion and attract attention. Before start
ing to work on the safe they removed from
the top of it a large cabinet, which weighed
about 100 pounds. This they placed In the
center of the floor. They drilled a hole
through the top of the safe for the evident
purpose of a vent, so as to reduce the noise
of the explosion. Then they drilled a second
hole near the combination on the door.
Black powder was used to force the safe,
and this leads the police to believe that the
work was that of amateurs and not pro
fessional safe blowers.
The safe door was blown open, but not
If its hinges, and the Interior was chat
tered. The force of the explosion blew off
Its hinges a doot leading Into the laundry
and In the rar of which the safe stood.
Nabedy Notices tka Rocket.
The explosion was not heard by any of
the residents In the vicinity, although be
tween and I o'clock dogs belonging to
Jack Whlttaker, who lives directly across
the street, did considerable barking, sup
posedly having been disturbed by ths noise
' of the sate blowing.
Patrolman John Smith passed the laundry
building at 4 o'clock on his way to the
police station, he being on the dog watch.
At that time the light In the offlcs was
burning brightly and the blind on the
window was open, leaving the Interior of
the office vlalMe from the outside. This
makes the police believe that the safe was
blown after that time. When the employe
arrived for work yesterday morning about
T o'clock they found the electric light
turned oft and the chimneys snd shades
belonging to the gas lights on the counter.
It Is supposed that the burglars took of
the glass shades and chimneys, fearing that
the explosion would shatter, them and in-
areas the aolee. ,,..s
The burglars obtained little booty for
thslr trouble, as tn addition to the $4.80
in cash they secured only a check on the
Omaha National bank for $38.77, a eheck
on the Council Bluffs Savings bank for
$4.TI and a Maryvllle, Mo., draft for $48.11.
Mr. Douglass' worst loss Is a number of
private papers. Including deeds to real
stat and Insurance policies, which are of
- bo value to anyone except himself.
Blows Ooea One Before.
Three years sgo the safe In the same
affle was blown open and the burglars
cured $50 In cash and valuable papers.
The safe was a small on and the robbers
had so trouble In forcing It. No clue to
th safe blowers was ever obtained. At
that time Mr. Douglass replaced th safe
with a larger . and more substantial one.
He also had the Interior of th office re
modeled so that th safe was In plain view
from th Window. - "
Th only lu th nolle have is a four

lower bouae of the Iowa legislature this

pulsory education law placed on any stat-
utebook, and a law that ha ben carefully
thought out by the educator of th state.
This Is th bill Introduced - by Dunham
which was virtually prepared by the com
mittee on schools and textbooks, with the
assistance of the state educational depart
ment and the Stat Teachers' asssocla
tlon. The bill provides that all children
between the agea of 7 and 14 must attend
some school at least twelve weeks each
year, and this may be either a public, pri
vet or parochial school. There I pro
vision for truancy schools and truant offi
cers to enforce the law and provision for
registration of th school attendance and
securing certificates of attendance without
expense and for excuse where such seem
necessary. Th bill was slightly amended
o as to still further guard against Inter
ferenc with private and parochial schools
and to render It Impossible under any cir
cumstances to make trouble for them. In
this form It passed, ths Tote being S4 to

the measure were: Messrs. Colclo, Cruik

Judge Charles A. Bishop of the district
bench has announced his Intention of Im
mediately resigning from the bench to re-
sum th practice of law. This step has
been anticipated for some time. He was a
candidate last year for the republican nom
ination for aupreme Judge, but the naming
of Cnmmlns for governor from this county
prevented the possibility of his name be
ing considered. As soon as bis successor
Is nominated by the republican primaries
he will be appointed by the governor to

C. H. Fulllngton, who claims to have
been mobbed last September near Avon,
has msd formal charges against John
King, postmaster at that place. H alleges
that King Instigated th visit of the mob,
which consisted of about fifteen men, who
called at his place of residence after dark.

persons! violence by King, spokesman for
the crowd, ordered him to leave the state.

"I have been east on private business

national and political issues are always my
greatest Interest. The relative position of
the republican and the democrat now Is
a peculiar one. Th democrats ar vainly
easting for Issue for th next campaign.
They have a hook and line out In every
conceivable spot, and are beating about tar
and wide for the desired rock . on which
to lay their foundations.
"Meanwhile the policy of the republicans
will be to lie quiet, and that Is what thsy
are doing. Thoy adopt thla method be
cause they feel that they can successfully
meet the democrats on any Issue the latter
may unearth and that no aggressive lnttla
tive on the part of the republican party
will be neceatary to Insure success this
"This same condition promises a long
session of congress, for the minority party
will doubtless make th session a prominent
field of their research in the hunt for Is

up will be prcbed to the vety core, In an
endeavor to discover some phase on which

ROME, Feb, 2. King Victor Emmanuel
opened Parliament today with considerable
ceremonial. .In .the speech from ths throne
hs referred to th tranqulllslng effect on
th country of ths government's liberal pol

Oatteiing testimonies of the esteem In which
our country is held by foreign nations. Th
confidence which Great Britain and Brazil

friendship ar fully reconcilsbls with
Italy'a supreme aim, .which la peace."
Among th bills announced tor lntrodue

Why Wheeler Shoots.
"I had Just left Washington when Rep
resentative Wheeler made thst speech In
congress. It was most unfortunate. I Im
agine that on reason why he committed so
grave sn error was that be felt no restraint
from his constituency. It is comprised
largely of Bryan classes and there are
almost no foreigner In It Mr. Wheeler
therefore feels that he can take considera
ble liberties with such people. A different
constituency would not endure It.
'On the Cuban sugsr question I stand
strongly for no reduction of the tariff, but
for establishing a rebate system whereby
the Cubsn government would receive the
return benefits. A reduction of this tariff
would let the benefits go to the big planters
and manipulators, who ars so largely aliens
and not Cubans in Interests or anything
'A grest many of the bigger sugar men
are Spaniards, with home In Spain, who are
merely In ths Cuban sugar business for
what there 1 In It. They, and not tho
Cubans, would derive th profits of a tariff
reduction. If we get the same benefits to
the government by means of a rebate ar
rangement, then the real Cubans will profit.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. Oovernor Taft
continued to discuss the cllmstlc conditions
In the Philippine today before the senat
Philippine committee. Reverting to what
he had said yesterday concerning the health
of the American troops In the Philippines,
Governor Taft said that much of the sick
ness which does exist was due to exposure
snd he Inddentslly mad an appeal for
liberal appropriation for th construction
of barracks for th protection of officers
snd men. The witness thought the high
death rate of troop In th Philippine wss
not 'due to the guerrilla warfare, saying thst
It was impossible to got soldiers to observe
the laws of hygiene. His experience, Oov
ernor Taft said, was that the greatest
danger In the matter of health tn the Phil
ippines is found In th neglect of symptoms
which are not generally regarded as of Im
portance In the United States.
He Knew, he said, of Europeans who had
tpent thirty or forty years In the Islands
and who are in good health. He thought,
however, that they generally left th
Islands for several months every two or
three years. As a rule a continued resi
dence had th effect of causing a gradual
deterioration of health. Governor Taft said
he attributed his own loss of health to lack
of exercise. He referred to the prevalence
of private disease snd ssid that certain
precautions had been taken by the medical
authorities In the way of supervision which
was thought necessary for th protection of
the troops and the public.
Expense of Government of Islands.
Governor Taft made reply to a number of
questions by Senator Culberson concerning
the expenses of conducting the government
of the Islands. He said that those expense
ar much higher than under Spanish rule
and that the Increase would be greater this
year than It had been last year. For In
stance, while the annual expense of con
ducting the government of Msntla under
Spanish rule was $500,000 to $1,000,000 Mexi
can, the present expense is about $1,500,000
In gold. The Increase In the total was, he
said, due to the Increase in salaries and to,
the improvement afforded."
