mined to renew Its efforts toward securing
a building as a permanent home for the
library by levying a 2-mlll tax tor a fund
I for tbe purchase of a suitable site on which

the library board recommended such a levy,
which is empowered by statute, but the city
council refused to certify rt up to the county
A the last census shows that Council
Bluffs has a population In excess of 25,000
the law provides that a levy of not exceed
ing 3 mills can be made for the purpose of
acquiring real estate as a site tor a library
building or for the purpose of erecting the
The board was unanimous In recommend
ing the levy of this tax and President
Rohrer, W. 8. Balrd and Dr. Cleaver were
appointed a committee to present the mat

every reason to believe that if It succeeded

The board also decided to recommend the

New Board Organise.
On the reorganization of tbe board by the
eating ot Trustees Balrd, Cleaver and
Stewart, the latter two taking the places
of E. A. Troutman and T. E. Casady and
Mr. Batrd succeeding himself, M. F. Rohrer
was re-elected president for the third year
in succession. Mrs. M. E. Datley was re
elected librarian at the same salary as be
fore, 160 per month, and Miss M. E. Sher
man and Mrs. B. K. Black were re-elected
assistants at the same salaries as last year,
$45 per month. Trustee J. J. Stewart was
selected as secretary and Mrs. Dailey as
clerk ot the board.
It was decided to pay tbe dues of the li
brary as a member of the State Library as
sociation and as a compliment to the presi
dent his also. Last year the board paid the
dues of each Individual member of the
board, but at the suggestion ot Congress
man Smith, who attended yesterday's meet
ing in his capacity as one ot the trustees.
It Was . determined, that .If the Individual
members desired to Join the state associa
tion they should pay their own uuoe. For
several years President Robrer haa attended
the state association meeting, paying hi
The rooms of the public library hay been
newly papered and present a greatly Im
proved appearance. Certain repairs were
ordered and the janitor was allowed 15 for
the extra work he had done during the re
pairing. President Rohrer asked that he be
allowed $28, but the other member-decided
that, the smaller amount was ample for the
extra work he had performed.
The report of the librarian for June
showed these figures: Number of visitors,
084; registered book takers, 2,802; number
of books taken, 8,266; books In circulating
library on July 1, 18,523; money paid for
rented books, 3264.40; amount received to

HAZELT0N IS NOW POSTMASTER
Given Ont tbnt No Changes Will Be
Made In the Employes of
Hon. A. S. Hatelton assumed the duties
of postmaster of Council Bluffs yesterday,
succeeding I. M. Treynor. Tbe legal trans
fer of the office was made by Mr. Treynor
to Mr, Haselton one minute after midnight
Sunday, but neither the Incoming, nor the
outgoing postmaster was present at that
time, both presumably being In bed sleep
ing and dreaming over what was and what
might have been.
The advent of Mr. Hatelton Into the
postmastershlp will, It la said, make no
changes at the postofflce. With the excep
tion of the deputy postmaster all the po
sitions are -held under civil service rules.
George T. Fhelps, who was deputy post
master under Mr. Treynor, will continue In
the same position, at least for the present.
in accordance with the usual euetora, Mr.
Haielton also beoomes custodian of the
federal building, but will not assume tbe
duties until Mr. Treynor has had time to
prepare an Inventory ot the government
property under his charge and close up
the other business connected with the of
fice. It is said that Mr. Haselton contem
plates one or more changes in tbe em
ployes under his control as custodian.
Mr. Hazelton forwarded yesterday to
Governor Cummins his resignation as state
senator. It Is unlikely, however, that the
vacancy will be filled, aa another state
election will be held before the next meet
ing of the state legislature. It is possible,
however, that Governor Cummins may Is
sue a certificate for the election this fall
ot a successor to Mr. Hatelton to provide
for a state senator from this district In.
the event ot an extra session being called.
The Council Bluffs postofflce 1c now one
of the most important in tbe state, paying
salary ot $3,200 to the postmaster,, an In
crease ot $100 having been granted July 1.
In addition to the regular business the
Council Bluffs postofflce receives remit
tances from about 300 smaller postofflcea In
this district, haa charge of several rural
free delivery routes, keeps the payroll for
about sixty railway mall clerks and su
pervises the immense mall transfer at the
Union Pacific depot. t . -
The employee at the postofflce presented
the retiring postmaster, Mr. Traynor, with
a handsome library table as a mark ot
their esteem and regard. Mr. Treynor
leaves the postofflce after serving two
terms with the unqualified esteem ot all
the employes who worked under him.

Object to a Grade Crossing. '
The Mason City V Fort Dodge Railroad
company began suit In tbe district court
yesterday to restrain tbe board of county
supervisors from establishing a grade Cross
ing over what Is known as the Maxfield
road In Hardin township. As the road Is
at present the railroad in crossing It will
irake a cut ot about -twenty feet, forcing
the county to erect an overhead crossing
over the tracks. W. H. McClelland and
others petitioned the county to change the
grade and the commissioner who was ap
pointed reported In favor of the request.
The railroad asserts that a grsdo cross
will not be feasible nor practicable, owing to
the height ot the embankments on each
side and that, further, It would be dan
gerous and prevent the company from run
ning IU trains In safety. It is further al
leged by the railroad company that the
county board has not the right to arbi
trarily determine the kind of grade and
that where a controversy arises it should
be determined by a court of equity. It
was stated last evening tbat tbe case would
in all probability be settled out of court

Condition, '.'of Iowa Crops.
. "6ne-third of the oats crop is lying flat
on the ground and canbot be saved," 'said
Henry' Wallace; 'the well known writer on
farm topics, after a return from a trip
through the ' rural districts of the atate.
"It Is my opinion that the corn acreage
In the lowlands and on the flats Is 45 per
cent ot the total acreage and nearly ruined.
The winter wheat la good. Almost a full
crop will be realised. Pastures were never
better. If conditions remain normal until
tbe hay crop Is harvested a heavy orop
will be saved. I do not believe the clover
has reached the stage where it can be
damaged by the wet weather. It is true
that clover , lies flat, on the ground, but It
hat -not reached a stage where the: decay,
lng-begins. " , '
"I believe the crops this year will be
far better than those of 1901. There Is lots
of tilling in Iowa this year and wherever
you find a farm well tilled you will find
the soil In excellent condition for working.
In my travels throughout the state I found,
of course, a great many fields where the
weeds are even- with the corn. These
fields were lest frequent, however, than one
would naturally i suppose after the 'super
abundance of rainfall."
Tbe date for the opening ot bids for the
new - buildings fet , the Soldiers' home at
Marshalltown has been - changed from July
28 to July 81. The new buildings Include
an assembly hall, a hospital building, a
kitchen, a smokestack 143 feet high, a
laundry building, a cold storage building,
a nurses' cottage and an Icehouse.
