BUTCHERS PUT LP A FIGHT
OrjVt to Being Single J Out as One BmineJi
to Close Up on Sunday.
ASSERT ORDINANCE UNCONSTITUTIONAL
If Defeated la This Contention Will
Bee to It that All Otber Mares of
Business Are Tightly
The proprietors of meat markets who
have been called Into court by the city
authorities for keeping their places of busi
ness open on Sundays, In violation of an
ordinance passed in 1877, are up In arms
and It Is said a merry war may be looked
for If an attempt to enforce this ordinance
Is made. The' pwners of meat markets
who refuse to abide by the provisions of the
ordinance assert that If they are compelled
to' close their places of business on the
Sabbath, other stores, such as groceries,
cigar stores, saloons, barber shops and
other places will have to keep, closed on
that day also.
The butchers who persist In keeping open
on Sundays contend that the ordinance is
unconstitutional, as It discriminates against
one class of merchants alone. They say
they are determined that If forced to close
on Sundays they will insist that the state
law regarding Sunday closing be enforced
and will take steps to see that it Is. This
will mean a Puritan Sunday for Council
Bluffs and the closing of all saloons, barber
shops and other places on Sundays. The
state law. makes no discrimination in the
matter of Sunday closing and the butchers
who have been summoned Into court realize
that they can swing? a powerful club If
railed upon to do so, In order to protect
what they claim as their rights.
Thorn Davis, E. Till, J. L. Kaler, Fred
Evers and Harvey Pace were the butchers
summoned to appear , in court yesterday
morning and explain why they should not
be punished for violating the city ordinance
by keeping their places of business open
last Sunday morning. The hearing was,
however, continued until Thursday after
noon, when It will; be' held before: Judge
Scott In the superior court. The offending
butchers have retained an imposing array
of legal talent and Bean to fight the or
dinance to the last ditch. In the event ot
the court upholding the ordinance and find
ing against them the defendants will then,
they say, take the necessary steps to have
the state Sunday closing law enforced, and
a merry fight may be looked for.

An element which had not been consid
ered by the party workers may rut quite a
figure In the election next Tuesday. This
element is the men employed on the con
struction work ot the Oreat Western rail
road In this county and the question arises
as to how many of them will be legally en
titled to vote next Tuesday.' The law re
quires that a man before -being entitled to
vote in Iowa must have been a resident ot
the state for six months prior to the elec
tion. At least 600 men. have been employed
from time to time on the Great Western
grade and the question that Is exercising
several of the politicians Is bow many of
these will be entitled to vote. The work
ot construction ot. the Oreat Westsrn was
begun last April, so that any man who has
worked continuously since then baa ac
quired a legal residence la the state, and
If registered will be entitled to vote.- Since
the work ot construction reached the city
It Is said that at' least 130 men are now
employed within .the municipal limits on
the Oreat Western, grade. In order to vote
next Tuesday all of, these will be-'required
to register and t,be result of . Saturday's
registration will t, watched with consid
erable Interest. On the first two. days ot
registration It Is believed but few. It any,
ot the men emplpyed op the grade regis
tered, and Saturday will be their last chance
to do so. It all of these men register their
vote next Tuesday night will exercise quite
an influence on the result ot the election,
and this Is what Is worrying many of the
Davis sells paints.
Wlckham Is Not Worried.
Contractor Wlckham said yesterday that
the action ot the city council Monday
night. in dscldtag .t declare hla contract
for ths paving of Harrison street forfeited
was. not worrying him at all. He said
he doubted vecjf much If the city could
cancel the contract ' and laughed at the
suggestion of him or his bondsmen being
held liable for any loss that the city may
entail by awarding- a new contract for
this work. k
Contractor Wlckham takes the position
that the city cannot hold him liable tnless
It relets the contract for the same ma
terlal as called for In hls contract, and the
party who might be awarded the- new con
tract could no more furnish Council Bluffs
brick than he could. Further Mr. Wick
ham said he was willing to do the paving
at the contract price ot $1.33 as soon as ho
could secure sufficient brick, which would
be early next spring. Mr. Wlckham says
there has been an unprecedented demand
for Council Bluffs brick this year owing
to the large amount of building going on
and this, with the large amount of other
paving in which the home material has
been used for. the .lower course, has kept
this demand In excess of the supply. Had
he paved Harrison street this year, Mr.
Wlckham says, much ot J.ba other paring
such as South Sixth street, could not have
been laid. The paving on South Sixth
atreet and other streets In the Fourth
ward, ha contends, were needed more than
the ir-provement of Harrison street-.
In order to show his willingness to pavs
Harrison street at the price In his con
Wlckham says that If the city advertises
for new bids he will asnln offer In itn the
work for f 1.33 and under those clrcuin- j
stances If the city awards the contract at
a higher figure. It will not be able to hold
him or his bondsmen liable for the dif
ference. In view of the fact that he Is will
ing to lay it at the old price. Mr. Wlck
ham also expressed the opinion that when
it came to the point the city council would
not declare his contract forfeited. Tho
same conditions, he asserted, applied to
the paving of Mynster atreet, where the
home material was ordered laid.
SCHOOL BOARD SESSION TAME
Contrary to Expectations lllah School

SUPREME COURT HANDS DOWN DECISIONS
Woman Kseaprs from Hospital and

ties Itefuse te Make Publle
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DE3 MOINES," Oct. 27. (Special.) State
Auditor Merrlam today Issued the state
ment of the condition of state and savings
banks In Iowa as shown by their reports
made to him under call ot September 15
last. This waa the first call since June IS.
The Increase in business of the banks, es
pecially In the matter of deposits and loans,
is highly gratifying. In fact the bank state
ment wholly disputes statements which
have been current during the summer that
there was a stringency In money matters
and that bank business was on the decline.
The statement, as compared with that of
June, shows that in the matter ot "bills
receivable," which is almost entirely loans
by banks to customers, the Increase In the
three months was over $4,600,000 and the
deposits Increased $$21,000. There wss also
substantial increase In capital stock and
surplus, while there was a great decrease
In the general credits.
A computation made by Chief Clerk M.
M. Robertson of the auditor's pfflce Indi
cates that while under the law the til sav
ings banks are required to maintain a re
serve of over $7,000,000, they actually have
over $10,000,000, and while the 810 state
banks should under the law have a reserve
of over $12,000,000, they have actually over
$14,000,000. The exact computation shows
that the reserve on hand shows a surplus
ot $4,797,610 more than required by law.
This Is on the basis of counting all banks
as In small towns. The actual surplus. If
every bank waa computed exactly, would
be more than this sum, but this computa
tion shows that the banks are highly pros
perous. The following Is the consolidated state
ment of the condition of state and savings
banks September 15:
Capital stock $ 20,606.400 00
Due depositors 1S4,$13.6R4 70
Due banks and others 412,916 S3
Surplus $.429,072 94

The supreme ''court today disposed of a
Cedar Rapids case which came near caus
ing riots two years ago. The Cedar Rapids
& Marlon Street Railway company sought
to lay tracks along a street and this was
resisted by the city and the owner of
adjacent property. For some time there
was an armed condition of affairs on the
street. Today the court held that the eom
pany can be compelled to place the tracks
In the middle of the street and to do the
paving between " tracks. In a Marshall .
county case the supreme court declared
that Judge Caswell should have permitted
the taking ot the case to the federal court
when the railroad company filed proof that
it was snch a case as the federal court
could take jurisdiction of. The following

Escaped from a Hospital.
A woman who resides In Creston and

ened the people, but disappeared before

prove fatal to her.

SHAW DEFENDS IOWA IDEA
Language Ambiguous, but Meaning Con
form! to Republican Platformi,
IS NEITHER FOR NOR AGAINST REVISION
Free Competition with Trusts Would
Engender Much Opposition and
Might Cause l Labor to
MARSH ALLTOW'N, la.. Oct. 28. The
largest meetings of the Iowa campaign
were held here this afternoon and evening.
Senator Allison delivered the principal ad
dress In the afternoon and Secretary Shaw
also spoke briefly, covering the tariff re
vision and the "Iowa Idea."
Secretary Shaw was the principal
speaker tonight. His address in part was
The, campaign In Iowa has asumed. It
seems to me, more than merited notoriety.
I confess to see nothing in the Iowa plat
form which justifies the controversy. I whs
at Cedar Rapids when the same platform
was adopted a year ago and. while I recog
nised and called attention to the fnct that
the language employed was liable to he
misinterpreted, I did not discover any dif
ference of opinion as to the Interpretation
It ought to receive. Personally I have al
ways regretted the money plank of the re
publican national platform of 1KA3. It, too.
was ambiguous laid some construed tt aa
declaring In favor of the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver.
The tariff plank In our state platform is
not a declaration In favor of tariff revi
sion, neither is It a declaration against
Declaration Eminently Proper.
Our political enemies demand a defensa
of the details of the present tariff laws
and they charge us with standing plcdued
to the maintenance of existing rates. This
Is not tho republican position and so to
answer the charge it Is eminently proper
to make the declaration contained In the
If the state convention of Iowa should
declare specifically for tariff revision or
for any specific remedy for trusts I doubt
not the Iowa delegation will be very prompt
to heed, and certainly the Iowa members
of the cabinet will bring the subject to
the careful attention of the president.
This has not been done as yet and there
fore neither tariff revision nor anti-tariff
revision Is a party measure In this state.
How soon we may expect a substitute for
the Dlngley tariff law I am not prepared
to predict. The responsibility Is with con
gress. The republican party never submits
details of legislation to a vote at the polls.
It lays down the great doctrine of protec
tion to American labor and It fights for
this principle, but It leaves to congress the
task of carrying out the details nf legisla
tion In harmony with the principle.
I anticipate some opposition will be en
gendered among republicans and demo
crats alike if an attempt Is made to re
move the tariff from such artlc'es as are
froduced by the larg corporations, popu
arly called trusts. The idea Is not novel.
It has ben urged In times past and some
very excellent people, whose good judg
ment Is entitled to the weightiest consid
eration, are now urging It, but we can
stand high prices far better than wa can
Before the remedy can be applied it will
become necessary to determine whether a
trust exists or not, and if It exists and
that fact can be established, the Sherman
law la quite sufficient to correct the evil.
