The Union Paclfto has several armed

impossible for a stranger to approach within

While at the transfer depot it is asserted
that these armed guards are being main
tained to protect the men who bare taken
the places of ths striking employes and to
prevent ths strikers from doing any dam
age to the cars and engines In the yards. It
is claimed by the strikers that the guards
have been placed there for the express pur
pose of preventing them approaching the
men working to induce them to leave their
work. The strikers further claim that the
guards are not needed, as there is no In

COAL DEALERSARE WORRIED
Not Certain Abont Their Supply of
Anthracite for Next
The retail coal dealers of Council fluffs
are on the anxious seat, fearing that they
will be unable, owing to the strike among
the miners In the anthracite coal districts.
to secure a sufficient supply of this kind of
fuel here this tall. At present the supply
Of hard coal in Council Bluffs doea not ex
ceed 150 tons and that Is what was left
over from last winter. To discuss waya and
mesne to secure an ample supply the local
retail dealers met Wednesday night at the
office of the Carbon Coal company. This
was said to be the only matter discussed at
the meeting and that tha price to be
charged thla winter did not enter Into the
deliberations at all. No definite action waa
taken beyond deciding to maks a united
effort to secure a full share of anthracite
for thla city.
In talking about the meeting yestsrday a
member of one of the local coal firms said:
"Tho present : outlook for securing a suffi
cient supply of hard coal for Council fluffs
thla fall ia most dubious and It is' very
likely that if the strike Is prolonged much
longer Council Bluffs, aa well aa other
cities In the west, will experience a verita
ble bard coal famine this year. No, matter
what happens, the price it bound to go up
and hard coal will be considerable of a
luxury. it obtainable at all. With the con
ditions existing at present I do not see how
hard coal will be sold this winter for less
than 110 a ton, and It would not surprise
me a bit to see it go much, higher. The
prospect all around Is not Inviting."

Varahalltown Tlmea-Renubllc: A little

President Jefferson. Mr. Madison, Secre
taryof War Dearborn and other officials
at Washington in regard to tha Louisiana
purchase. Governor Claiborne was detailed
by President Jefferson to go to New Or
leans and receive from the French the ter
ritory of the Louisiana, which Is now
known as the Louisiana purcnase. Tne nrst
of these letters is dated at New Orleans

Claiborne on the questions of government

some of his letters the difficulties ahead of
the American government. It la probable
that this book will be given a place in the
Keokuk Gate City: One of the interest
ing topics considered at the recent meeting
of the flute Bar association In Dubuque
was that of legal restraint of marriage to
prevent the reproduction of the defective
classes. The matter has already been dis
cussed at some length in these.'columns,
but tha last word concerning It has not
been said. The views of Judge Klnne pt
the Btate Board of Control are well known.
At the bar meeting at Dubuque they were
endorsed by Judge Remley . of Iowa City,
who gave a striking illustration of the need
of legislation on tne subject. He referred
to a case which came under his observa
tion la a county of his Judicial dlstrlot
where a well to do farmer had a son who
was not bright, but made a full hand on
the farm. 11 married a woman three
year his Junior, and even after his mar
riage,' when he was X years old, the father
Continued to treat him aa a minor and to
manage his business. A few years ago
the father died and it became necessary to
appoint an administrator to manage the
affairs of the younger man. But in the
meantime there were eight children in the
family, all idiotic. Three have since died
of neglect, three are at Olenwood and two
are at home. Judge Remley insisted there
should be aome law to prevent Just such
occurrences In Iowa. He contended that
while the right to marry and have children
Is Inalienable and sabred, the state does
take away that right as It does the right
of life, and there are now In state institu
tions more than 6,000 cltliens to whom is
denied the light of marriage. An extension
of that principle, he maintained, is needed.
