MINERS AND OPERATORS STILL AT OUTS
bet firing ttnestloa Hard to Dispose
Of Kew Street Hallway Project
for Dee Mlses-Dwer
Riant BUI Passed.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOIXE8. March 14. (Special.) The
bouse changed Its method of concurring In
senate amendments to house bills this
morning and for the first time began to
call tbe roll on these amendments. Here
tofore tbe house hsa concurred by simple
rote, a majority of those voting being suffi
cient. Inasmuch as the constitution pro
vides that on a bill a roll call shall be bad
acd the yeaa and nay (ball be entered In
the Journals, it waa decided that on concur
rence In amendment, which mlgbt even
go to the length of a complete substitute,
the roll should be called. The senate also
cam up agalnat the question and called
tbe roll on concurrence In amendments.
A number of bills will have to be published
again as a result of this complication.
The bouae refused to concur In senate
amendment to a bill to give authority to
Interurban railwaya. It was represented
that the senate amendments have com
pletely destroyed the bill, that they were
placed In the bill in tbe Interest of the
corporation owning street railways In
cities, that they would absolutely prevent
an interurban electric line from carrying
freight Into the cities and would therefore
prevent the building of Interurban lines
except by companies already owning lines
la cities. The vote to not concur was unani
mous. The house voted down a bill to establish
the weight of a loaf of bread in Iowa at
The bouse concurred In senate amend
ment to the sheriffs' salary bill and to
the bill to require Inspection of mines. A
bill to hare tbe state buy the supplies for
oil Inspectors was passed, also a bill to
permit Insurance of health and one legalis
ing the act of water works trustees acting I
tinder appointment of tbe district court.
Dower Right Bill Passes.
The bill to legalize transfers of real
estate where the husband or wife has signed
away the dower right of the other under a
power of attorney. In fact or assumed, bas
been finally passed. Tbe bill was changed
materially and held In committees a long
time, because It was of doubtful character,
but today tbe, senate concurred In the house
substitute, which it Is believed will pre
vent all litigation which might grow out
of the supreme court decision affecting such
Tbe senate passed a bill In regard to as
sessments In special charter cities, one
providing for railroads over roads taken
as highway tor private use, a bill to pro
vide tbat the secretary of state shall rendsr
quarterly statements to state officials and
ommltslcns of the amount ct printing and
indlng done during tbe quarter and a bill
o provide for annual examination of am
ounts of state officers by an expert ac-
ountant. A bill to give saving banka the
lent to borrow money on real eatate loau
va discussed, but not finished.
A bill to fix salaries of assessors In Des
Moines was passed. A bill to require pub-
Icatlon annually of a financial ststement in
til cltie of th state, the statement to go
the full length of all material Information
n regard to city affairs. The bill was also
passed by the house.
Shafting Oat Certala Concerns.
Attorney General Mullen today prepared
a bill, which was Introduced In both house
of the legislature, having the purpose of
shutting out of the state certain concerns
which are doing a business in Iowa by a
sort of building and loan process. One Kan
sas City concern, which 1 In fact not or
ganized a corporation, has been estab
lishing agencies In Iowa and selling land
and lots by a process of paying In monthly
payments. It waa found that there Is no
law regulating persons or firms doing a
building and loan or similar business In
Iowa. Th law proposed thla morning
would mak the building and loan law
cover mortgaged bodies or firms doing busi
ness In Iowa.
T Giro Farmer Representation.
Other bills passed by tbe bouse thla after
noon were: To give farmer representation
In the state agricultural convention; to In
crease the annual allowance to the 8tate
Horticultural society to $4,000j to appro
priate $80,000 for atate arsenal.
The aenate paased a bill to require the
publication of the annual statement of the
city finance and a bill to provide a pro
cedure for notice of fir loasea.
The house pardon committee today re
ported favorably on two application tor
pardon, those of Theodore Busbeck and
John Bellew. The asms committee re
ported against pardona for Christina Beh-
rn. Byron Oulnn and Jasper Mason. It
bas eight other cases to dispose of.

today. Th operator refused to consider
the plan to engag regular ahot flrer at
their own expenae, d to agree that on
hot oaly per day should b fired in all

practice. Th miners, at least some ot
them, bad for a time thought that ths
question of on or tw shots per day
should be left to th local mln foreman
Instesd of being specified la tbe state agree
meat and thla Idea wa discussed today.
The operators, so it Is taid, have no objec
tion to the miner employing professional
hot Brer and paying for them, but will
not consent to the one shot per day rule,
as they say raaoy times a mine wilt run
short on cosl if depending on only the on
blasting. They Insist that the miner ar
benefited by two hots, soon and Bight,
and ought to stand the expense. It I
tbougbt that some progress will be mad
this afternoon and evening, and that the
joint session of tbe miners and operator
Tuesday will be an open one. though It I
not expected that the shot firing question
or the uniform day wage scale will be set
tled for several day.

council this morning granting to the Like
Improvement company right to the aa

the city from Colfax. This has been op
posed by the owners of the present city
system and now another company ha en
tered tbe field and ask for a franchise on

VII believe Rheu
matism is a disease of
the blood. Perhaps it
is, and perhaps it is not.
If it is a blood disease,
why is it the pain often
stays in the same place ?
Why is it the blood
doesn't always carry the
disease all over the body
and into every muscle
and joint? Your doctor
may be able to explain
it, but it is all guesswork any
how. Omega Oil is what you
ought to use for Rheumatism.
It is to be well rubbed on the
place where the pain is. No
matter whether the trouble is
in the blood or not Omega
Oil goes in, finds it out and
cures it. What's the odds so
long as you get relief?
Drink plenty of fresh
water every night and
morning while using
Omega Oil. The water will keep the kidneys well
flushed, and will bring about a quicker cure of Rheuma
tism. Try this plan for two weeks and sec the result.
