Seleet Team Wltbaat Debate.
There will be no preliminary debate to
elect the team to represent the Council
JSluffa High school, in the oratorical con
test with ths Sioux City High school. The
Phllomathian Literary society ot the Coun
cil Bluffs High school haa selected Charles
Campbell and Alfred Hanchett as Its rep
resentatives on the team. They were both
members of the debating team in the con
test with Sioux City last year. This ac
tion of the Phllomathian society precludes
the possibility, ot any ot the other as
Olrants among the boys from securing
an opportunity to appear on the team de
spite the fact that Principal Ensign ruled
that a preliminary debate should be held
to select the contestants. Campbell . had
refused to enter the preliminary debate,
holding that as he was one ot the repre
sentative of the school In the last de
bate with Sioux City he was entitled to
b place on the team this year.
The girls are entitled to one repre
sentative oa the team and in order to make
a selection may hold a preliminary debate,
but It will not be of the publlo character
as originally arranged by Principal En
lgn. The. action ot the Phllomathian society
In deciding to select Campbell and Hanchett
as its representatives , waa brought about.
It la said, by ths fear that the team
might he weakened if they did not appear

DES MOINES. Oct 16. (Special.) Com
missioner William Achlson today sold at
nubile auction the property of the Iowa
Homestead, a weekly farm paper, one of
the oldest in the west, together with the
Wisconsin Farmer, the Ksnsas City Live
Stock Indicator and other properties con
nected with the Homestead, with the real
estate and a four-story brick block and
well equipped plant. The sale was made
necessary by the failure ot the partners to
agree. The property was owned Jointly by
James M. Pierce, business manager, and B.
F. Stewart, advertising manager. They
formerly bad Henry Wallace aa a partner
and editor but he retired some years ago,
and after a great deal of litigation the
supreme court finally ordered the property
sold for cash, that the whole matter might
be cleared up. There were only two bid
ders, Pierre snd Stewart, and the bidding,
which started at $55,000, moved up to $162,
010 before Stewart quit and allowed Pierce
to get the property. The employes of tho
Homestead, sixty In number, were present
and broke Into great applause when their
employer bought the property. They were
prepared. If Stewart bought the property,

cused of making an attempt on the lite ot
Mrs. Haward, colored, who lived In tho
same neighborhood. Trouble arose over the
quarrels of the children of the vicinity, ac
celerated by the fact that some of them
were colored and some were not. This
morning the trouble became acute and it is
alleged by the prosecution that Mrs. Win
ters procured a gun and shot twice at Mrs.
Haward. The only effect was to frighten
all the people of the vicinity and to create
great excitement. Mrs. Winters refused to
make any statement.

Bank Taxation and Bonds.
The Iowa supreme court this morning re
fused to accept the conclusions of Judge
Smyth of Burlington In the matter of al
lowing banks to deduct from their capital
stock the United States bonds held as a
part of the capital stock, before assess
ment Is made for taxation purposes. The)
German-American bank at Burlington had
pretested against the action of the Board ot
Review In declining to deduct $100,000 In
bonds from the assets of the bank as not
. taxable before making the assessment. The
pian or assessing was to assess the entire
shares of stock to the bank as a whole.
Judge Smyth ordered the deduction, but the
supreme court todsy declared this was all
wrong and ths board was correct. "Tbls
method of assessing and taxing," said the
court. In the opinion prepared by Judge
Sherwln, "the shares of stock of banks was
undoubtedly adopted for convenience and
for the purpose of reaching valuable pro
perty which might otherwise escape Its
Just share of the public burdens and does
not in our Judgment compel payment of
the tax by those who do not own ths
property." As the shares of stock are
taxed to the bank as a whole the court
ssys It wss Improper to deduct the value
of the government bonds therefrom la ar
riving at their value.

went to the city hall. There they asked
me where I resided and I told them I

not sure. They asked me where I lived
and I told them. In a few minutes they
handed me a certificate signed by the city
clerk and two freeholders, to the effect
that I was a legal resident of tho Sixth

Were Affidavits Made In Blank f
J. F. Lynch, who resides at 2418 Rur
dette street, also an employe ot the Lee-Glass-Andrecsen
company, was present at
the conversation between Mr. Spain and
the reporter. He said:
"Ypu know how the thing is doue. I
know Henry McDonald, but my Impression
Is that I never saw him at the city hall the
day of the primaries. I certainly did not
ask him to sign an affidavit for me, al
though I voted on certificate. I do not
know Mr. Gibson at all, and it I ssw him I
do not know It. My Impression is, from the
way the thing was worked at the city hall
that day, that there was a large number
ot blank affidavits signed by freeholders of
the wards and left In the bands of some
political agent at the clerk's office and that
these blank certificates were filled out as
the occasion required."
The affidavit accompanying the certificate
of Mr. Lynch Is signed by Gibson and H.
S. McDonald, and the reason assigned for
bis name not appearing upon the books Is
that he was out of the city during the
registration days last fall, to which fact
the men who signed the affidavit swore,
without having seen the voter to his knowl
edge at the time the affidavit was prepared.
. Percy E. Gwynne, who gave his residence
as 3001 Seward street, is recorded as hav
ing voted upon certificate In the Sixth ward,
while the address given Is in the Eighth
Other names of questionable residence ap
pear in this ward, but they have not been
investigated at this time.
In the Fourth Ward.
The Fourth ranked second to the Sixth
In the extent to which the law was disre
garded. Here eight certificates were is
sued regardless 1 of the terms of the
statute, and here also did W. 8. Esancy get
his vote sworn In. A list of those who
voted on defective certificates Is as follows:
S. C. Barnes, 211 South Twenty-fourth
street: "I registered and was Judge of
election last fall. It must be a clerical
error." Signed by C. S. Elgutter and F. B.
H. J. Schmidt, 217 North Twenty-third
street: "Was prevented from registering by
working too late nights In a drug store."
Signed and sworn to by F. B. Kennard and
J. G. Carpenter.
William Buthorn, 316 South 8xteentb
street: "The clerk did not register my
politics." Signed and sworn to by G. An
derson and F. B. Kennard.

street: "Not In city at last day ot regis
tration." Signed and sworn to by Dunn

"Did not know it was necessary." Signed
and sworn to by J. Holtorf and Adams.
Percy Babbitt, Twenty-fourth and Var
nam streets: "No knowledge ot the time
and didn't know it was necessary."
In the other wards the reasons were made
to conform more with the requirements of
the statutes, the men in charge seeming to
desire an apparent conformation with the
law at least.
Came la Other Wards.
In the First ward Frank Ward was
granted a certificate because he found it
impossible to register on account of being
delayed at work." This affidavit was signed
by O. C. Olson and Clyde Sundblad.
C. G. Hedberg of 1714 8cuth Fifth street
received a certificate on the statement that
be did "not know of registration until it
was too late" on an affidavit signed by C.
B. Schroth and W. J. Robinson.
I. P. A. Brucehart ot 2618 South Twelfth
gave as an evcuse that "registers failed to
put down politics, but gave It as repub
lican." Tbls waa algned and sworn to by
P. N. Hanson and F. W. Koetter.
In the Second ward Charles Georgo ot
1217 South Thirteenth street was granted a
certificate on the showing that he was "too
late to register," the affidavit being signed
by A. C. Harts and W. W. Bingham.

, Out ot approximately 100 persons who
gave sickness as their excuse for not being
on the registration books but one certifi
cate signed by a physician as required by
law is on file with the committee.
