Get Into the Field Be
fore It Meet.
Although Ova months ahead of the No
vember election, candidates for the several
county offices to be voted on this fall are
coming to the front with announcements of
their aspirations. There is already a good
field of entries with probably a number yet
to be heard from. Next November the peo
ple of Pottawattamie county will be called
upon to elect a clerk of the district court.
county attorney, county auditor, county re
corder aiid two members of the Board o
Supervisors. v
Freeman L. Reed is nbw completing hit
fourth term as clerk of the district court
and be will not seek a renomlnatlon, being
content to turn the office over to some other
good republican. G. O. Balrd, wbo has been
Mr. Reed's chief deputy for a number of
years, is a candidate for the nomination.
H. V. Battey, deputy at Avoca.Ms a candi
date for the nomination from the east end
of the county. Up to date these are the
only two candidates who have announced
themselves for this nomination.
For the republican nomination for county
attorney there are already four candidates
In the field. W. H. Klllpack, the present
Incumbent, who is now serving his second
term, is out aftef a renomlnatlon for a
third term. . Clem - F. Kimball, assistant
county attorney, has announced himself as a
candidate. John M. Galvin Is also an active
candidate and A. T. Van Slyke of Oakland
has also announced his candidacy,
Elmer E. Smith Is serving his second
term aa county recorder and to date no one
has appeared on the scene to contest his
renomlnatlon for a third term. The same
Is true of R. V. Innes, county auditor. Mr.
Innes Is serving his second term, but up to
date he has no opposition for a renomlna
tlon. Mr. Innes served a number of years
as deputy under former Auditor J. M. Mat
thews and is peculiarly adapted for the po
sition. Henry Brandes, now serving his second
term, and Allen Bullrs, who was appointed
to fill the vacancy caused by the resigns
tlon of B. O. Auld, are the two retiring
members of the Board of County Super
visors. It is said that both will be before
the convention for renomlnatlon. They
may have opposlttpn, but It has not 4 eve I
oped yet.
No date has been set as'yet tor the county
convention. It will probably not be held
before the latter part of July or possibly in
August. The state convention ass been
called for July 30. Pottawattamie county
is entitled to twenty-seven delegates to the
state convention. v

State School for the
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, May 20. (Special.) The
Iowa supreme court today decided another
case involving right to property in East
Omaba, overruling tbs decisions of Judge
Walter I. Smith In the Pottawattamie
court and holding contrary to the gen
erally accepted version of what the United
States supreme court was supposed to have
held In- the Jeffries case. In this case,
that of East Omaha Land Company against
Jens Hanson, the controversy waa over the
lmlt of government lot 2 in the cutoff
district. Hanson occupies land on the old
sandbar which formed in the main chan
nel, and the company claims that Its lots
run west scroes the sandbar, which Is In
fact, so they claim, but an accretion to
Its property. The Iowa supreme court
holds that the sandbar or island was
formed .long before the present contro
versy arose and before the river made
the cutoff In 1877, and therefore the land
comprising the Island la not an accretion
to the adjacent land within the horseshoe
bend. It was claimed by the land com
pany, and so held by Judge Smith, that
the decision of the United States supreme
court In the Jeffries case aettled this one,
because It was held that all the land u
accreted land. The Iowa court refuses to
take this view of the matter, but holds
th the United states court merely oe- :
elded on the boundary line between the !
statea, leaving all other disputes to be
settled later. It was also claimed that
Hanson had agreed to abide by the de
clMOn In the Jeffries case and was per
mitted to remain on the land because of
this agreement. The court finds no evi
dence of any such an agreement, aad even
It it existed it would not affect the title
to the land. The decision of Judge Smith
In favor of the land company is therefore
- In another case decided today the court
holds that an attorney cannot recover com
pensation for prosecuting in a disbarment
case, but must eerve without compensation
when directed by the court to do so.

the extradition court before Judge La
Fontaine when the Oaynor-Greene esse was
called. It began when the counsel for the
accused complained that yesterday they
were unable to secure access to their cli
ents, who' were being confined In a private
prison at the Wlndaor hotel. They, there
fore, demanded that Gaynor and Greene
be committed to the Montreal Jail in charge
of Governor Vallee so that they could se
cure access to them.
Mr. McMaster for the United States gov
ernment at first raised no objection, but a
tew minutes later he received Information
that two writs were sworn out and one of
these was addressed to Governor Vallee.
Once in the Montreal Jail the writ would
be served on, the governor and he would
have ao choice but to obey Its call and take
Gaynor and Greene down to Quebec. Mr.
McMaster entered a vigorous protest against
the proceedings. . I -
Judge La Fontaine took the matter un
der advisement and this evening decided
that as tbe prisoners really should be In
Jail, and desiring to go there, he had no
alternative but to commit them. . The prls
oners were then taken anq committed to
the care of Governor Vallee until Friday

Disaster Fonr or Five
Days Before.
PARIS May 20. Governor L'Huerre of
Martinique has cabled to the colonial min
ister, M. DeCrals, announcing that Mount
Pelee continues to throw up Immense
Quantities of cinders, which, owing to a
change in tbe direction of tbe wind, are
now covering the southern districts of the
Island. - .v 1
Violent explosions have been heard at
LeCarbetL The governor further declared
there is no danger of aa outbreak on the
part of tbe population of tbe northern dis
tricts of the Island, as alleged, on account
of tbe people being out of work.
interesting information of the Mount Peine
disaster is being obtained In letters which
are coming hers from people In the Island
of Martinique.
One letter written during the afternoon
of May S, 'says:
"Tbe population of the mountain is flock
ing to the city. Business is suspended, the
inhabitants are pantc-atricken and the flre
mea are sprinkling the streets and roofs,
td settle the asbes, which are filling the
This and other letters seem to Indicate
that evidences of the impending disaster
were numerous five days before It occurred.
It Is difficult to understand how It was
that a general exodus of the population of
St, Pierre did not take place before May 8.
Escnrslon Was Planned.
A St. . Pierre paper of May 8 announces
that an excursion arranged for the next
day to Mount Pelee had been postponed as
tbe crater was inaccessible, adding that
notice would bo issued when tbe excursion
would take place.-
Although Whltmonday Is a public hol
iday the ministry of tbe colonies waa open
as usual and all the officials were at their
posts. ,
The advices received from . Martinique
this morning indicate, that the local au
thorities are no longer anxious regarding
food 'and other supplies, which are now
reaching Fort " De Franca in sufficient
quantities to meet all demands until the
arrival of the supply ships now on tbelr
way to the Island.
The correspondent of tbe Associated Press
learns that the ministry of the colonies
totally discredits the report of the de
structions of St. Marie, Martinique, by firo,
which has reached here, aa today's dis
patches do not mention the fact, which they
certainly would have done had tbe town
been burned. ,
The latest royal subscription Is that of
the former queen regent of Spain, who
haa' given ten thousand trances for the
fund, which now amounts to over 750,000
.M. L'Huerre, the governor of Martinique,
