ited had at ulrty streets s Council Bluff
od alnce hi return home be has made up
Mi mind that something muni be done at
cnre to Improve tbelr appearance. He Is
determined that the down town streets
shall be Riven a thorough cleaning, and Is
tnly awaiting the return of Alderman Mc
Donald, chairman of the atreets and al
leys committee, to hsve the work com
menced. With the balance remaining in the
streets and alleys fund Mayor Morgan Is
confident that the streets csn be given at
least one thorough cleaning before winter
gets In and that after that Is accomplished
they can be kept fairly presentable by put
ting the street sweeper Into commission
Tbe mayor is also determined that the
custom of merchants and others of throw
ing refuse Into the streets shall be stopped
and that the city ordinance governing this
natter shall be rigidly enforced.
Next year, after the new appropriation
Is made for the maintenance of the va
rious city departments, Mayor Morgan will
suggest that a sufficient sum be set aside
from the streets and alleys fund to keep
the atreets la the business portion ot the
city clean tha entire year and that greater
economy be exercised In the expenditure of
this fund than has been the case this year.
This year the appropriation for tbe entire
year was almost consumed within the first
aix months, leaving the atreet department
la a crippled condition for the remainder
ot tha fiscal year.

From a Staff Correspondent )
DES MOINE3, Oct. 22. (Specie!.) The
lack of interest among the members of
the Iowa National guard Is causing some
apprehension for the future of the guard.
Only a Tew weeka ago the adjutant general
ordered that the company at Stuart, in the
Fifty-first regiment, be mustered out and
thla was done. The company had been
In existence a little over a year and not
been strong at any time. The attendance
at drills had fallen so low that It became
necessary to order tbe company disbanded.
The report of tbe drills made to the ad
jutant general for the quarter ended Oc
tober 1 ahowa that two other companies
have become very weak and interest is
slight. Those are the company at Marshall
town In the Forty-ninth and the company
at Hampton In the Fifty-second regiment.
The percentage of attendance at both fell
below 50, in the case of Marshalltown being
47.72 and at Hampton S4.15. Tbe adjutant
general has ordered the Inspector general
to go to these places within the next ten
days and make an Inspection and report
whether the companlea sball be disbanded.
Military authorities are unable to account
tor the marked decrease in interest tn tbe
guard companies In the state.
