REPUBLICANS SEE VICTORY
Chairman Brown Eipecta Party to Elect
Major and Councilman.
SOLID BUSINESS VOTE FOR MORGAN
His Majority Over Jennings Is Fore
casted as Three HandredWnraa
Contests (or Ward Al
dermen. Although the municipal campaign prac
tically closed Ssturday night, several of
the candidates improved the opportunity
to put In a few finishing 'touches Sunday.
The campaign while short has been lively,
and both parties have been working day
and night since the nominations to secure
supremacy at the polls today. Two years
ago the city campaign was quiet and the
work done was on tho still-hunt order,
but this year things were entirely different
and for the last two weeks the city has
been In the throes of on of the warmest
political campaigns seen In many years.
What the result of all thl hard Work on
ths part of the candidates and their sup
porters will be, the ballots today will tell.
Chairman Brown of the republican city
central committee said yesterday he was
pleased with the situation and the outlook
for a republican victory was exceedingly
bright.- He said: "A careful canvass of
the situation throughout the city Indicates
that the republicans will elect their en
tire ticket. Including the six ward alder
men. A careful estimate has been made
and it shows that Dell O. Morgan wtll be
elected by a majority of at least 800 votes
over Victor Jennings. Tho rest of the
ticket will be elected by safe majorities.
Mr. Morgan's candidacy has gained strength
dally and nothing except a complete land
slide, which Is not at all probable, can
prevent his defeating Jennings , In addi
tion to the loyal support of his party Mr.
Morgan will receive a large number of
votes from business men In state and na
tional politic affiliated with the demo
cratic party. Mr. Morgan will bo the next
mayor of Council Bluffs, and he will have
a republican city council and administra
tion to work with."
Hogbes Bnoys I'p Democratic Hone.
Chairman Hughes of the democratic city
central committee said yesterday he was
confident Victor Jennings would be elected
by a safe majority. Thl assertion was
made despite the well known fact that Jen
nings I meeting with opposition in his own
party and that to be elected he would have
to draw strongly from the republicans,
which Is not likely.
Figures taken from the results of the city
election in 1900 may prove Interesting at
this time, considering many of the candi
dates there are In tho field again this year.
Mayor Victor Jennings two year ago had
as his opponent Dr. Baratow. Jennings
was elected by a majority of 398. City
Solicitor Wadsworth ran against G. H.
Scott, since elected Judge of the superior
court, and he only succeeded la defeating
Scott by fifty-two votes. His opponent
this year is 8. B. Snyder, who will poll
the full vot of his party and who Is re
garded aa a sure winner Frank True, re
publican candidate for treasurer, two years
ago defeated A. K. Cooper, democratic nom
inee, by 288 votes. This year hla opponent
Is Peter Jensen, a cigar manufacturer, who,
although successful In his particular line
of business, has had absolutely no ex
perience In managing the finances of a city,
as he would be called upon-to do In the
event of hla election, which Is not at all
probable.' Frank True during hla connec
tion with the city ha shown himself an
efficient and capable officer. F. L. Evans in
1900 was reelected auditor by a majority of
506 votes over Kelly, the democratic nom
inee, and this year he will doubtless roll
up an even larger majority over Vigo Bad
ollett, the democratic candidate, who was
given the nomination when no one else
coulj be found to take it

IOWA S0L0NS MAKE HASTE
Legislators Are Anaions to Speed I'p
the Gear of I. an -Producing;
(From a Staff Corresnondent.l
DES MOINES. March 30. (Special.) The
legislative session appears to be nearlng
a close. The senate has already adopted a
resolution to limit the time of debate and
to hold night sessions from this time on.
The house has similar resolutions ready.
Sifting committee will be named early
thl week. An effort will be made to push
through this week all of the Important
legislation yet to be considered. The com
mittees have done their work. The calen
dars are now well filled. One day last
week the senate calendar appeared with
130 bills upon it for consideration, and
every one was of some Importance. A night
session was held one evening and twenty
bills disposed of, but they were mainly
legalizing acts. The calendars tomorrow
morning will show from 100 to 125 bills on
each one, and this does not include thoee
that are of greatest Importance, the ap
propriation Tills. But the disposition Is
to make bast from thl time on and unless
something unforseen comes up, the legisla
ture will gc through tho middle of next
week and aujourn.
The appropriation bills are In practically,
fjo better condition than they were a week
ago. The conference subcommittees of the
two approDrlatlons committee are at work
trying to reach an agreement on the main
appropriation bills. There must be a cut
ting down of the bills at some nolnt and
the committees are finding their "task a
difficult one. During the last week they
have made practically no progress. The
members of the State Board of Control were
before the entire legislature one evening
to discuss these bills or those relating to
tne various penal, charitable and correc
tional Institutions; but they were not able
to point out how and where deductions
should be made In the estimates they have
already furnished the legislature. The
committees have decided upon not making
appropriations for the various park pur
poses suggested. There was to be pur
chased a park at old Fort Atkinson, an
other at Spirit Lake, and so on, but none
or tnese project will be realized. Some of
the bill for appropriation will be condi
tioned on the securing from the general
government of the war claims of the state.
The legislature is certain to greatly in-

three has been beaten In the house, where
It originated. The heads of the state In
stitutions at once made a hard fight on
thla bill and insisted on continusnce of the
old order of things. The bill had been post
poned, but the agitation on the subject has
been such aa to make it reasonably certain
it will come up at another session and re.
celve more consideration.
The railroad legislation Is in a peculiar
stat and some interesting developments
are expected the coming week. The rail
way assessment bill was defeated In tbe
house after it had received consideration
In the committee only. The vote was over
whelmingly against It. The Molaborry bill,
which wss vetoed by the governor. Is still
a live Issue and may cause lots of trouble
for the legislators. The consideration of
the veto has been put off until Tuesday.
In the meantime a new bill has been pro
pared and presented and Is on the calendar
for consideration. It is generally believed
that the veto will be sustained and imme
diately following this the second bill will
be passed, and with it tbe Hubbard bill,
which is declared to be a part of the same
legislation, and which supplements the Mols
berry bill These two bills will be sent
over to the bouse snd that body will pass
them on promptly to the governor. It ia
anticipated that he will not hesitate to
veto them, but that the legislature will
be able to pas both of them over hi
veto. To do this is sure to cause an ea
IraOKomcul bolween the executive and
legislative branches .of the government
and to bring about political conditions
fraught with great danger in ths future.

Mr. Relnhart says:
It Is not generally known, but It Is a fact

Chesapeake & Ohio, a number of men
quietly took up the project for the con

Construction work on over MO miles of
the line westwardly through the Shenan

Virginia is now under way, with fourteen
milt's of track laid and over half of the
entire line has been surveyed and located,
estimates of construction made thereupon
and preparations are now being completed
for general construction.
The line Is In no sense a parallel road
