RAILROAD CARRIES POINT
Judge Wheeler Eefum to Enjoin It from
Driving Piling in Road.
ONLY ORDINARY FRAME PROVIDED FOR
Cooaty May Appeal or Poeslfclr May
Bring the Matter Before the aest
Grand Jsry oa CrtaUaal
In the suit brought by Pottawattamie
county to restrain the Mason City Fort
Dodge Railroad company from obstructing
the public highways In Its construction
of the extension of the Great Western
railroad to Council Bluffs, Judge Wheeler
of the district court yesterday decided
against the county and declined to Issue
the temporary injunction asked for.
Judge Wheeler refused the Injunction
applied for on the grounds that the ob
structions . on the highways are not of
such a nature as to require a restraining
order. He also held that it was only or
dinary public travel and use of the high
ways that the railroad had to provide for
and not the exceptional use. The county
Introduced evidence to show that the piling
driven by the railroad In various high
ways throughout the county did not leave
sufficient passageway for a threshing ma
chine to pass through and that In several
p'accs the county's elevator grader would
be unable to pass, owing to the obstruc
tion caused by the piling.
The suit was brought particularly to
restrain the railroad from obstructing the
highway near Green's packing house In
Garner, where the piling has only left
a passageway of less than seventeen feet
In width, but a general restraining order
applicable to all roads throughout the
county was asked for.
Ever since the Mason City Fort Dodge
Railroad company began Its construction
work In this county, Ita methods of plac
Ing piling In the public highways for Its
overhead crossings has been a bone of
contention .between It and the farmers
fcslng the highways. The railroad has re
fused to reoede from Ita position, claiming
the right to temporarily obstruct the
roads. On behalf of the county It is
contended that the railroad drives Its pil
ing at right angles to Its line of railway
without regard to the highway, and places
them at an angle In the road without an
opening .between any two rowa of piling
of snore than seventeen feet, which la
considered Insufficient passageway. At the
Napier crossing, on the . highway skirting
Mosquito creek. It Is charged that the
railroad has placed Its piling practically
square across the roadway, which almost
makes the thoroughfare Impassable for
even ordinary travel.
Stand for Sevea Years.
The "temporary" crossings constructed
by the rsllroad, It Is understood, will be
left In position for from Ave to seven
years, when they will he replaced with
steel girders on atone abutments. At least,
President Colt of the Mason City A Fort
Dodge road offered to agree during the
trial of the case that If the county would
agree to permit, the "temporary" cross
ings to remain, the railroad would at the
end of aeven years replace them with per
manent steel bridges. This County At
torney Klllpack, on behalf of the countr,
refused to agree to.
It Is possible that the county may ap
peal from Judge Wheeler's ruling, but
this will be a matter for the Board of
County Supervisors to determine. County
Attorney Klllpack stated yesterday that he
would likely bring the matter before the
grand Jury at Its session in oepiemoer
and try to secure an indictment against
the railroad on a charge of obstructing
public highways, which Is a criminal
offense, and In the event of the grand Jury
returning an Indictment It would then
bring the matter before a Jury for settle
ment. Gravel roofing. A. H. Read. 541 Broadway.

aad Passengers Hit a Bad

A westbound motor on the Omaha line
waa derailed laat evening about I o'clock
near the old slough trestle, which has
been recently filled. The front trucks
stopped within a few inches of the edge
of the embankment and what might have
been a bad accident was thus narrowly
averted. The car was well filled with
passengers, many of whom became almost
panto-stricken when It seemed that the
car was about to plunge down the embank
ment. The derailment was due to a piece
of wood being left alongside of the north
rail. It la asserted by the officer of the
motor company that a member of a sur
veytng party bad placed the ptec of wood
on the track to use M a seat while watt
ing for a car and forgot to remove It
when the car came along. The service on
the Omaha line was bwdly demoralised by
the accident, as It was an hour and a
half before the derailed car could be
placed on the track again.

ALL IN READINESS FOR CONVENTION
Indications that aa Increase of 4.
OOO.OOO Mill Be Made la the As
sessment of the Rail
roads. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, July 28. (Special.)
There la now reasonable certainty that th
republican state convention of thl week
will reaffirm the platform of last year,
with only such alight change as might be
deemed necessary by changing conditions.
The county conventions held the last week,
and especially those held on Saturday, In
dicated a general desire to have this year's
convention reaffirm the platform of last
year. This is regarded by all as a con
cise statement of the view entertained by
the late President McKlnley and expressed
In the last speech bo uttered. It demands
reciprocity and a revision of the tariff
schedules so as to not afford shelter to
monopoly where that Is found to exist.
For 'some time It has been evident an at
tempt would be made to have this changed
and the platform declare only for protec
tion, without any hint of removal of pro
tection from monopolies. It is under
stood that Congressman Smith, in btl
speech as temporary chairman, will take
a stand In opposition to anything that
would indicate that monopolies have been
sheltered by the protective schedules, but
Senators Allison and Dolllver are In favor
of a clear expression on the subject. In
thla district there has been a contest be
tween ex-Senator Berry of Warren county
and Lafe Young of Polk county for a place
on the resolutions committee. Berry fa
vors last year's platform and Is a candi
date as the special friend of Governor
Cummins, who very much desires reitera
tion of th platform. Young is opposed to
that platform and would leave out the ref
erence to monopolies. In the Fifth dis
trict It is believed Secretary Wilson will
be selected without opposition. George E.
Roberts, director of the mint, will be on
the committee from the Tenth' district.
Crlag Wright of Sioux City and Senator
Funk of Dickinson county are considered
In the Eleventh district. Colonel French
of Davenport will be on the commute
from tho Second.
Preliminary Work for Candidates.
Th preliminary work for the candidates
Is now being done. All of them are on
band and have their rooma open for vis
itors. There is much talk of combination
and deals. This i considered possible, be
cause, for lnsttnce, in the Fifth district
there is a candidate for clerk and one for
railroad commissioner and the same condition-
exists in th Third district and In
the First district. N. 8. Ketchum of
Marshalltown is clearly in th lead for
railroad commissioner nd has the best
organization, but E. A. Dawson of Waverly
is confident he will be renominated. C. T.
Jonea of Washington county is In the lead
for clerk, but the fact that he has been la
th office for twenty years is working
against him. and C. W. Neal of Daven
port 1 coming to the front aa th leading
candidate with the Second district aolidly
for him. There 1 some interest in th
candidate for reporter, but it Is generally
believed it will be a close race between
oauDger ana Cornwall.
Many Inebriates Cared ror.
The report of Superintendent
of the Stat hospital at Mount Pleasant
filed with the Board of Control, shows that
a great many more inebriates have been
cared for there than was supposed.. During
u " w ""re were forty-four, of
whom six were women, who were .n i.
the hospital by boards of Insanity and wero
enierea as Insane, but who in fr --
only inebriates. Besides this. th. Hiwi
Control sent three state patlenta there who
were inebriates. The court sent live to
the hospital, two for one year .a
three for six months each. This was under
u viu iw. ur in inebriate the superin
tendent discharged twenty-one as cured, six
were taken out by order of court, three es

six in the hospital July 1.
Soldiers' Hospital Mich Isod.
The report of Commandant Harton r
Soldiers' homo at Marshalltown for the
year ended June 80 last shew that th hos
pital ha been much needed. There Is an
average of over 100 in the hospital at all
times, vuring the year there were 460
treated in the hospital wards, beside the
large number who received medical atten
tion in their rooms. For the yegr ended
June SO, 1901. the home cared for 888 old
soldiers and for the last year a total of
1.08. an Increase of 223 over th previous
year. Fifty-five persona on th rolls of the
Candidate for Congress.
The congressional convention in the
Second Iowa dlstrlot will not be held until
August 20, but the delegates have been se
lected. There are two avowed candidates
for congress. The Jackson county repub
licans Indorsed !. W. Gregory, county at
torney, for the nomination, and the Musca
tine county republicans instructed for Wil
liam Hoffman of Muscatine. The Scott
county republicans did not bring out a
andidate, but either W. H. Wilson or
Colonel Nutting will be presented by that
county. The Clinton county people will
likely bring out a candidate also. Dele
gate in the city from that district still be
lieve the candidate will be Wilson of
Capitol Commission at Work.
Messrs. Funk. Cumming and Scnoeotren
of the Iowa Capitol commission, are In the
city engaged in arranging the preliminaries
for the work on the capltol.- The repair
work will be attended to first. A great
aeai or repair work is needed on the capltol
It la now regarded as certain that the
executive council of the state will make an
increase of 84.000,000 in the railroad as
seeament of the state, placing the total at
a trifle over 851,000,000. Thla is the valua
tlon for assessment purposes. The council
ha not finished making the assessment as
yet and because of the state convention ad
journment was taken over until Thursday
At that time the work will be completed
The Increase of $1,000,00 will be regarded
generally as suffiolent, but it will not meet
the demands of some of those wbo spoke

DUBUQUE, la., July 28. Speaker Hen

of the grievances of the National Millers'
association, on the ground that he prevented
the passage of the London dock bill, said:
"I had not heard anything of It until
Saturday last, when I first saw an article
on the subject. I waa greatly surprised to
see anything of the kind from the millers,
whose friend I have been all the time and
I tried to get their bill through. I gave
them the floor once and let 1 come up the
aecond time, but members in charge of the
measure wanted it passed over, as they
hoped for a compromise between friends and
enemies of the bill. Thl was twice that
the bill's friends had aa opportunity. Later
I proposed again to have the bill called up
by calling upon the committee, but Mr.
Tawney, author of the bill, was absent that
day and other friends of the measure were
unwilling to have It com up in hla ab
sence, ao that I three times that the bill
practically had It day In court, and for the
reasons named failed to be disposed of, but
in no Instance waa It any fault of mine.
The bill is a Just one and ought to pass,
and I have no doubt it will pasa at the
short session of congress. I fear there has
been some very thoughtless misrepresent
ation about this matter, for it la not usual
for men to attack their loyal friends."
