So far the year 1902 has witnessed the
greatest movement in real estate known
In Council Bluffs and Pottawattamie county

Western railroad into the city has been a
factor in increasing the number of trans

REBUILDING DEAF SCHOOL
Good Prograis Being Made at th Oonitrno
tisa of Temporary Building.
WILL BE READY WHEN FALL TERM OPENS
taperlateadeat . Rethert Remaining;
on the Grenada to Assist la
Out at the Iowa 8chool for the Deaf, a
short distance south of the city, the tem
porary . buildings . authorised by the stste
executive council to take the place for
the present of. the buildings recently de
stroyed by fire are being constructed with
all rapidity consistent with good results
and Superintendent 'Rothert and his corps
of assistants are happy In the thought
that when the time for the opening of
the new school year arrives they will be
able to take care of the large number of
pupils always seeking admission to this
institution. The disaster to the school
by the Are was of course considerable, but
by reason of the prompt action of all par
ties bearing responsibility for the school's
success the institution .will be able to re
sume st the opening of the-new school
year the first of October tnuoh as If noth
ing had happened.
The construction of the two main build
ings is being pushed Just now. One of
these Is a two-story frame structure de
signed for school purposes; it Is 60x105
feet in dimensions and is situated Just
north of the gymnasium. The building will
contain twenty recitation rooms and ample
hallways. This building will have a good
deal of permanency In Its character and
will be useful for many years. The work
on it Is now 'so far advanced ' that It" will
be turned over to' the plasterers within 1
couple of weeks. ' 1 '
Good ' progress has also been made on
the work of repairing t,t chapel and din
ing room wing ' of the old main building,
which was not entirely destroyed by fire.
This wing of the old building la being con
verted Into two-story brick building, 60x
60 feet. The lower floor will be used as a
dining hall and the second floor as living
quarters for the teachers and officers of
the institution. Over the kitchen and laun
dry of this building have been fitted up
living rooms for Superintendent Rothert
and family. .
Other work about the Institution Is going
on rapidly and Superintendent Rothert Is
remaining at hand all the time, having
foregone the pleasure of a vacation In order
that he might personally oversee the work.
It win of course be some time before the
institution has the excellent quarters snd
equipment that It had before the fire, but
until the legislature meets and takes the
necessary action to . provide a restoration
of the permanent buildings the school IS
going to be so housed that It will get
along very nicely Indeed. -
GENERAL SMITH WILL ATTEND
Mnea-Talke of Army Mas ' Promises
to. Visit the Rennlon . .
This Month.- ' !' -"
The members of the general committee
having In charge the arrangements, for the
coming reunion In this city of the National
Society of the Army of the Philippines
and all others interested were made happy
late yesterday afternoon when Congressman.
Walter I. Smith, chairman of. the com
mittee on speakers, reoelved a telegram
from Major General - Jacob Smith, stating
that , he would he here at the reunion and
In compliance with the request of the com
mittee would speak at the big meeting on
the evening of the 13th of August. General
Smith has Just landed ' at San Francisco
from the Philippines., He Is one .of the
most widely known and talked about figures
In connection with the whole Philippine
matter and ths promoters of the reunion
feel that they have In him a great draw
ing card. ' - .
As Is well known by even the school
children of the land General Smith Is the
officer who issued the famous "kill and
burn" order to Major Littleton T. W.- Wal
ler In connection with the letter's cam
paign in the province of Bamar. For this
he was court-martialed and later, on the
president's review of the esse, the general
was retired from aotlve service In the
army. The order given by General 8m!th
to Major Waller was the subject of more
serious debate In congress In -connection
with the Philippine civil government legis
lation than any other incident and some
of the antl-admlnlstratlon senators gsve to
General Smith the sobriquet of "Hell
Roaring Jake." In view of this extraor
dinary position occupied by General Smith
In the Philippine matter the announcement
of his coming to the reunion will arouse
more Interest than any other' feature ef
the gathering 'so far secured. - It is antici
pated that If he says anything at all It
will be aomethlng Interesting and the peo
ple want to see and hear him.
Dr. Donald . Macrae, president of the
Iowa Society of the Army of the Philip
pines, who is working hard for ths success
of the reunion, addressed a letter to Gov
ernor Cummins yesterday requesting that
the battalion of the National Guard prom
ised by the governor for the occasion be
sent wlthv forty rounds of ammunition for
use in ths sham battle. It this ammunition
cannot be secured In thJs way the com
mittee may. have some trouble In getting
it from other sources.. To begin with it
is expensive $27 per 1,000 rounds and
early delivery upon order Is. not certain.
Dr. Macrae also asked the ' governor to
crder that the Fifty-Bret Iowa Regimental
band be ordered to attend the encampment
with the battalion of militiamen.
The committee having in charge the
finance for the reunion reports good prog
ress In raising funds. It is estimated that
It will require about 22.600 to do the hand
some thing and the business men of the
city are going to see that there la no

company at Quincy, Mass., Inviting him to
name a young woman to christen the

September 20 next. The' governor was also
requested to make the appointment at an

fact that Miss West, who had been selected
for the christening act, has gone on a visit

make the appointment Jn tew days, but
will first consult with Mayor Brenton, as
he feels that the naming of the young

done by the mayor of the city for which
the cruiser has been named. If ha had
time, the governor said, he would writs
and ask the company to place the whole
matter In the hands ef the mayor, but the
time is too short to g into all the explan
