ARRANGING FOR CAMPAIGN
Leadtri from All Farts of Ninth Diitriot
Attond the Oonfirenc.
LOCAL SPEAKERS TO BE USED IN THE MAIN
Campaign o Be en Old-Fnsnloned
School District Affair In Which
Every Community Will
The republican campaign in the Ninth
congressional district will be opened about
October 1 and as Chairman Spence of the
state central committee styled It, will be a
"school house" campaign. In the several
counties comprising the district local speak
ers will be employed almost entirely, al
though one or more meetings may be ar
ranged for in the district for which speak
ers of national prominence from other
ststes may be secured.
This was decided upon at the conference
held yesterday afternoon In the office of
Chairman George S. Wright of the repub
lican county central committee. R. H.
Spence of Mount Ayr, chairman of the state
central committee presided and every
county in the district except Adair was
represented. A. F. Dawson of Preston, sec
retary to Senator Allison, who Is in charge
of the state bureau of speakers and cam
paign literature. Congressman Walter I.
Smith and National Committeeman Ernest
B. Hart were also present. The county
chairmen present were: D. C. Mott of Au
dubon county, C. L. Campbell of Cass, H.
J. Baird of Mills, Ralph Prlngle of Mont
gomery, George S. Wright of Pottawattamie
and I H. Plckard of Shelby. C. A. Van
Scoy, postmaster of Woodbine, represented
Harrison county In place of County Chair
man H. M. Bostwick, who was unable (o
be present. II. U Marshall of Guthrio Cen
ter was present In place of County Chair
man E. W. Weeks of Guthrie, who wss
also unable to be In attendanoe.
The meeting was mainly an executive
session, at which the situation In the dis
trict was discussed and the needs of the
several counties In respect to speakers and
literature ascertained. Yesterday's confer
ence was one of the series which Chairman
Spence Is holding In every congressional
district in the state.
Discuss Henderson's Declination.
The action ot Speaker Henderson in de
clining the congressional nomination in
the Third district was discussed Informally
at the conference and the consensus of
opinion was that it was a sore blow to
Iowa. Chairman Spence and Mr. Dawson
attended the conference of the Third dls
liict republicans at Waterloo ! 5trrty
and at that time there was not the slight
est intimation that Colonel Henderson was
dissatisfied or thought of declining the nom
ination. To both Mr. Spence and Mr.
Dawson Speaker Henderson's action comes
as the greatest of a surprise.
Chairman Spence said: "I attended the
conference of the Third district repub
licans at Waterloo last Saturday and I
found the chairman ot the several counties
oomprlslng the district to be most enthus
isatlc over the prospects for Colonel Hen
derson's re-election In (hat district by an
increased majority. Speaker Henderson
was present at the conference and entered
heartily into the discussion for the cam
paign in his district. He gave not the
slightest Intimation or hint that he was
dissatisfied and that he intended declining
the nomination. He even went so far as to
arrange for a couple ot rallys to be held
soon at which he was to be the principal
speaker. The tariff question was not dis
cussed in any shape or form at that con
ference and Colonel Henderson appeared to
be In perfect accord with the several county
chairmen ot his district and they with him.
I cannot understand the meaning ot bis
Asked as to what he thought the Third
district would do for a candidate in place
of Colonel Henderson, Mr. Spence said: "As
to what the Third district republicans will
iow do for a candidate I cannot say, for thr
possibility of any other candidate than
Speaker Henderson bad not entered into
the mind of anyone. Speaker Henderson's
withdrawal places the Third district re
publicans In a most peculiar and unfortu
nate position. The Third distrlot, however,
Is fortunately strongly republican and who
ever the republican candidate may be he
will undoubtedly represent that district in
congress. Colonel Henderson s action is a
great blow to the state, as by it Iowa will
lose the speakership."
Trouble of Pesthowse.
In the event . ot another eptdemlo of
smallpox this winter the city will be forced
to provide a hospital for female patients
somewhere within ' the corporate limits.
The plan proposed to build an addition to
the pest house near Mynster Springs for
a female ward cannot be carried out, as
the trustees of Garner township have de
clined to grant the necessary permission
to the city.
Residents of Garner township, who
never looked favorably on the city's pes'
house In their locality, are up In arms
against any enlargement of the bulld'na;
and numerous remonstrances hive been filer
with the township trustees. When Mayr

the residents and taxpsyers of the town
ship. The isolation hospital in Garner town
ship is the property of the city and has
been established for a number of years. I
has been used solely for ths accoraraoda
tlon of male patients, and last winter the
city wss confronted with the problem o'
caring for female smallpox patients. To

Increase In School Attendance.
Complete reports received by Superin
tendent Clifford from all the schools In the
city show that the enrollment at the end
of the first week of the new school year
Is 4,697, as against 4,145 at the close of the
first week of last year, a gain ot 552. The
enrollment at the close of the first week
for this and last year is as follows:
High school 445 415
Washington Avenue 8-9 31
Bloomer 520 474
Twentieth Avenue 500 392

Qunn 25 20
Totals 4,61)7 4,145
Eleven schools show Increases in en
rollment, while four show losses, and one,
the Hill school, the same enrollment as
last year. The largest increase Is at the
Second avenue school, where the enroll
ment this year Is 450 as against 242 last
year. The Twentieth avenue school shows
an increase of 108. The change of bounda
ries to relieve the congested condition at
the Washington avenue school accounts for
the slight decrease In the enrollment at
this building. The decrease in the enroll
ment at the Pierce street school is due to
the fact that a number of pupils were
transferred to other buildings this year.

In the suit of the United States against
Former Marshal Frank P. Bradley the mo
tion on the part of the government to
strike out that portion of Bradley's coun
ter claim covering services rendered in
1895 as the money that the government
sought to recover formed part pf the ap
propriation for 1898, was argued and taken
under advisement by the court. The gov
ernment contended that if Bradley had
any claim against the department tor ser
vices rendered in 1895 his proper course
was to bring suit in the United Ststes court
of claims and that he had no authority to
retain a portion of the money appropriated
by the department for the maintenance of
the marshal's office in 1898.
The motion on behalf of the petitioning
creditors in the bankruptcy case ot Brun
ing Brothers of Breda, la., to dismiss the
proceedings brought by them was overruled
and several firms, among the number being
five or six implement firms of this city,
were permitted to intervene.

most cases, the mere transplantation ot an

Right of Remonstrance.
'The United States offers asylum to the

brought home this government during thai
past few years that many of the inhabi
tants ot Roumanla are being forced by ar
tificially adverse discriminations to quit
their native countries; that the hospitable
asylum offered by this country is almost
the only refuge left' to them; that they
come hither unfitted by the conditions of
their exit to take part In the new life of
this land under circumstances either profit
able to themselves or beneficial to the com
munity, and that they are objects of char
ity from the outset and for a long time
the right of remonstrance against the acta
of the Roumanian government is dearly
established in favor of this government.
Whether oonsciously and of purpose or not,
these helpless people, burned and spurned
by their native land, are forced by the sov
ereign power of Roumanla upon the charity
of the United States. This government can
not be a tacit party to auch aa interna

against the treatment to which the Jews
ot Roumsnla are subjected, not alone be

nir.s MOINES. Sept. 17.- Special Tele
gram.) The opinion of AU-rney General
Mullan In the matter of the consolidation
of the Rock Island properties was filed to
dsy and with It Governor Cummins filed
his concurrence in tne conclusions. i
governor set on toot the investigation as
to the legality ot the consolidation under
an Iowa charter and tne inquiry as w
whether or not it could not be prevented
as being against public policy. He filed
the facts of the organization of the Iowa
company and the New Jersey companies
before the attorney general and asked tor
a legal opinion as to whether the new
Rock Island company ot Iowa Is a law
fully organized corporation and whether the
transaction descrtbed can be arrested at
the instance ot the etate, or stating the in
quiry in its broadest terms: "Is there any
remedy under our laws for so grave an oi
fense against public policy?"
The attorney general's opinion Is ex
haustive and he reacher the conclusion
that the transaction is entirely legal in
every phase under the Iowa laws; that
there Is nothing in the Iowa laws to pre
vent the purchase of the stock of one rail
road company by another, provided they are
not parallel and competing, and nothing
preventing the classification ot stock In the
manner done by the Rock Island reorgan
izes. There Is nothing to prevent the is
sue ot stock of a face value far beyond the
actual value of the property purchased.
The attorney general says he finds noth
ing done In violation of the policy of the
state as indicated by the acts of the leg
islature and decisions of the courts and
no proceedings on behalf of the state to
arrest the reorganizing can be maintained
under the laws as they exist.
Governor Cummins files his concurrence
In this view and adds: "The thing done
Is neither a merger nor a consolidation.
Not a mile of track nor a dollar in value Is
added to the Rock Island property. It Is
simply a new device for watering securi
ties. It is for the next genersl assembly
to say whether it Is wise to permit our

Which He Is Negotiating.
NEW YORK, Sept. 17. Sir Robert Bond,
premier of Newfoundland, who reoenlly
visited Waablngton with the object of fur
thering a fisheries reciprocity treaty with
the United States, is in this city. Regard
ing reports that bis mission had been a
failure, he said:
I was unable to aeeompUsti anything in
Washington th other day simply because
Acting Secretary of State Adee needed to
consult the president in order to get au
thority to begin negotiations. During the
interval of the slight delay occasioned by
the necessity of consulting the president
at 0ster Bay I took advantage of my
fteedom to come to this c'ty for reasons
of private business.
I am waiting now until negotiation can
be properly carried on. I expect to return
to Washington for that purpose the latter
part of this week or the first of next.
I do not see any Indications that the
project will fall of success. It Is not. of
cojrse. proper to make public at the pres
ent time any of the propositions which I
may submit, but I have no reason to be
lieve that they will not be well received.
