INTEREST LAGS IN MONUMENT
Contributions to Kinsman Memorial
Fnnd Are Not Coming; as Fast
The committee In charge of raising funds
for the Colonel Kinsman memorial monu
ment are not meeting with the success they
anticipated. Since the first wave of en
thus! asm. aroused by General Granville
Dodge while in this city, has passed away
the contributions have not been coming In
aa rapidly as could be desired. . . 4
The collection taken among . the chil
dren of. the publlo schools amounted to
about $30, which was a disappointment to
the committee. At the present time about
one-half of the 'necessary fl.tOO for the
purchase of the monument has been col
leoted or promised and the committee real
ises that If the monument Is to be In place
by May 17, the anniversary of Colonel
Kinsman's death, and at which Urns it was
hoped that the monument would be un
veiled at a reunion In this odty of the sur
viving veterans of the Fourth and Twenty-
third Iowa regiments, some considerable
hustling will have to bo done in the mat
ter of raising funds and that a more sub
stantial interest will have to be manifested
on the part of the publlo. The committee
will meet this week to arrange further
plans for raising the funds needed.

WANTS BRICK FOR ABUTMENTS
Bricklayers' Inlon Tells Conncll that
Vao of Them Will Keen Moaojr
In the City.
At the meeMng of the city council to
night the question of the material to be
used in the abutments for the bridge over
Indian creek at Mynster and Main atresia
is to bo taken up. When awarding the
contract to E. A. Wlciaatt ths council do
oided upon concrete., bnt since then the
bricklayers' union, backed by the trades
and labor assembly, haa naked that the
council rescind Its action and designate
brick instead ot concrete. The bricklayers'
union baaea its request on the grounds
that the selection of brick will keep
large amount of the money to be expended
on the structure at home. Wlckham'a bid
called for either atone, brick or concrete
tor the abutments.
The aldermen probably would be willing
to grant the request of the bricklayers'
union provided vitrified paving brick were
used by the contractor, but the specifica
tions call for sidewalk brick, and several
of the councilmen for this reason are op
posed to It and will insist on concete.

NEW LEGISLATION "lN IOWA
Five Weks Find No General Measure
Signed by Governor Much Pre
liminary Work Is Done.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Feb. 13. (Special.) The
Iowa legislature has been In session now
live weeks and no bill of general nature
has been signed by the governor. The only
bills to be completely disposed of are a
few legalising acts and one appropriation
bill for ths Cherokee Insane hospital, which
was needed so that work might be con
tinued at this Urns. But nearly 700 bills
have been Introduced In the two branches
of ths legislature. Ths committees have
done a vast amount of work. Much of
the general legislation contemplated has
been digested. Ths legislature Is at least
as far advanced with work as usual at this
time of the year and the leaders ot the
legislature feel that they have done fairly
The coming week there will be given
consideration of some matters of Impor
tance and interest. One of the chief mat
ters will come up In ths senate on Tuesday
morning when the bill to change the penal
system of the stats, establishing perms -cently
the parole system with Indetermi
nate sentences, placing the persons con
victed of lesser crimes In the penitentiary
at Anamosa and converting It into a re
formatory proper, and giving soms board
power to transfer convicts from the re
formatory to the peltentlary or the oppo
site at will. The measure Is pending in
the senate and has been made a special
order. The, bill has been introduced by
Senator Emmert, whose seat is threstened
by a contest and who may be ousted any
day, but the measure is really championed
by the Board of Control. It will meet with
considerable opposition from the lawyera.
The railway assessment matter has not
gons so far. The bill to provide for mak
ing the assessment on ths market value of
the . stocks and bonds as determined by
the market reports, has been prepared and
presented to the senate ways and means
committee, and soms of its features have
been considered, but It is known that ths
committee is far from harmonious in re
gard to the measure. The bill con
templates a complete change In the as
sessment system of the state. It will
meet with bitter opposition in ths legis
lature, but those who have prepared st
and are prepared to champion the measure
are apparently In full control and It is
almost certain to become a law.
The compulsory - education matter will
come before the senate this week. ' Ths
bill passed ths house. In other years a bill
for this purpose haa mat with opposition
from those churches that maintain paroch
ial schools. The bill this year was
amended to suit ths Lutherans before it
was presented at all, and later changes
were made In the measure at the sugges
tion ot Archbishop Keane, which made the
bill, satisfactory to the Catholics. . The aim
of the educators is to get the principle
established in Iowa and amend the law
from session to. session as It may ba found
necessary. Tho bill pasaed ths house by
Urge majority and will pass ths senats
with little trouble.
Bills Affecting Salaries.
Among the bills that will attract much
attention in the near future are those
affecting salaries.' Ths measure to increase
the salaries of the supreme Judges and to
so change the terms of court that the court
would practically sit all ths year, baa not
been well favored. It would have been
defeated at the outset If It had not been
withdrawn. A house committee has now
so changed ths bill that there Is nothing
In it about changing the terms of court,
snd the salary increase amounts to . only
11.000 a year. But ths bill may be fixed
up properly later en. The bill to Increase
the salaries of district Judges is yet to be
acted on. The bill affecting the salaries
of sheriffs has been changed in committee
so that the highest sslary for a sheriff wtll
be $3,500 a year. In this form ths bill will
be strongly supported in ths house ths
coming week or aa soon as reached on the
calendar. There are also bills affecting
the salaries of court reporters, county re
corders and some others. Ths members
seem to fear a general '..-ward movement
Ths appropriations bills havs not gone
vary far. Ths senate committee la waiting
for the house committee to do the primary
w6rk on the main bills. Ths hsuse com
mittee has completed , ths work . on ths
Board ot Control bills. These relate to
the fourteen charitable, penal and reform
atory state institutions, and for thia ap
propriations ara needed amounting to about
1800,000, which is mors than ths money
which ths state auditor and treasurer re
port is available for all the extraordinary
appropriations. So ths house appropria
tions commutes has appointed a subcom
mittee to find out If more money Is not is
sight, or It some way cannot be devised for
Increasing ths state's revenues materially.
unairman Hughes of ths appropriations
committee is emphatle in his position. Hs
says that if this Is all ths money the stats
now has at its disposal It must get mors.
"Ws must take cars of our stats institu
tions." he says. "If ws havs not sufficient
revenue now. we must get it. Only a very
small part or tho money psld In Uxes comes
to ths state treasury. Our state tax levy
is not large. Iowa can afford to pay well
for the care of her dependents and for ed
ucation, and I believe that the people will
sustain us If ws do ths right thing by all
our state institutions and Interests snd
then see to It that taxes are levied to pay
for the same."
Much of the legislation thus far has been
in toe nature or correcting errors in ths
cods or ths laws. Ths past week two bills
havs bean considered of this nature, which
illustrate what la happening all the time
One of them corrects a clause In ths cods
which provided that whers a person com
mits a crime in Iowa while he is outslds
of ths stats, certain things shall happen.
uoviousiy tnis is not what la msant. but
it has been changed so ss to, read whers
ons leaves ths stats sfter committing s
crime. Anoiaer prescribes that persona
doing a certain thing shall ba
punished, but does not aay bow or what
tor. Thia has been corrected. Ths usual
grist of legalising acta are to be found

DE3 MOINES, Feb. 21. (Special.) The
county treasurer of Polk, In which Des
Moines is situated, presents figures making
the remarkable shewing tbst by reason of
the tax ferret law this county has been
enriched by about 1150,000 in taxes ths
psst year. Reports show tbst in the ststs
mors than a million dollars has been col
lected under the contract with the tax fer
rets and that the stste of Iowa has received
over 1100,000 as Its share of the collec
tions. ' '
But the Isw Is ssld to be driving many
rich persons out of ths state" and to causs
the Investment of Iowa funds in other
states, and is therefore deemed objection
able. The county treasurer and county of
ficials, however, are strongly In favor of
continuing the law as at present at least
tor several years. "a
Congressional Contest. m
Ths congressional contest In the Seventh
district has assumed peculiar phases. Ths
republican county central committee meets
tomorrow and may change the date of the
primary, setting it for a later date. Ths
dste was originally fixed for March 10, in
order to get la far ahead of the primaries
in Story country.. It was regarded as cer
tain that Story county would go for Judge
Prouty for congress, snd this . would in
fluence the result In Polk county. The
friends of Congressman Hull controlled In
Polk county aad set a date earlier than
Story. They now reallte tbst ths date is
Laat week the republican city committee,
which had set the city plmary for March
7, changed to March 10, so as to havs
city and congressional and county and
Judicial contests all at ones. Now the
county committee contemplates making a
change to about the 25th of March, but Is
threatened with retaliation from Story
county by moving up ths primaries there
to an earlier date. The campaign Is bslnl
conducted along such lines. Inasmuch as
it Is a fight which can be settled In this
county alons, the contest la unusually

Fight Over a Woman.
two men engaged in an affray on East
Court avenue this evening, which came near
ending seriously for one of them. They
were William Boalan and Richard Witter,
tne former a blacksmith, and their quarrel
was over a woman in whom both were In
tercated. Witter had a revolver and shot
four times at Boslan at short range, but
was so drunk that he shot wlds of ths
msrk, except one bullet, which struck
button on Boslan's coat and mads a wound
in his breast, but did not enter tho body.
A Might Alarm.
Worse than an alarm of fire at night ia
the brassy cough of croup, which sounds
like the children's death knell, and it
means death unless something is dons
quickly. Foley's Honey and Tar never falls
to give instant relief and quickly cures ths
worst forms of croup. Mrs. P. L. Cordler
of Mannlngton, Ky., writes: "My 1-year.
old girl had a severe' cass of croup; the
doctor said she could not live. I got a
bottle of Foley's Honsy and Tar; ths first
dose gave quick relief and saved her life."

Field Secretary's Address.
Ths afternoon session was opened with
a praise service, led by Mr. Chaffee of
Omaha. The principal address of the after
noon was given by C. K. Ober, Held secre
tary ot the international committee. Mr.
Ober spoke upon association work in or
gsnlxed points at home and abroad. Mr.
Ober reviewed the rapid growth of the as
sociation during ths fifty years of Its ex
istence. Thers are at present 60T success
ful city associations tn the cities ot largest
sixs in North America. These associations
havs buildings valued at over $2,600,000.
In theao 607 cities the young men com
prise one-fifth of the whole population.
Moreover, there are in thess cities 186,000
members. An Interesting fact is shown in
ths larger per cent of the young men
which smaller cities havs in ths sssoclation
membership over ths Isrger cities. .This,
says Mr. Ober, Is an encouraging outlook
tor ths sxtenslon of the association move
ment into these entailer towns. Thers srs
at least 600 cities with sn aggregate ot
800,000 young men where organised work
could be made successful. To do this thers
must be an Increase in the number of men
entering sssoclation work. There will be
needed 1.000 new men to occupy positions
besides those already established in organ
ized poinu. We have, besides ths North
American movement, association work of
ths North American type tn Paris, Roma,
Berlin, St. Petersburg and Stockholm.
These associations ars ths product of the
North American movement. The success
of ths movement in European cities is evi
