ta Wrong Man.
When E. W. Miller, a lineman in the em
ploy of the Western Union Telegraph com
pany, went to visit his family in Sac City
Sunday, he was greeted as one arisen from
the dead. He found the family in mourn
ing and sadly awaiting the arrival of his
supposed dead body from Council Bluffs.
Preparations for his funeral had proceeded
to the extent that the grave had been
dug and other arrangements made.
A letter from Miss Maggie Miller to her
brother, the lineman, addressed to Council
Bluffs, which had been wrongly delivered
to E. W. Miller, a patient at the Woman's
Christian Association hospital, who died at
that institution a few days ago, was respon
sible for the mistake.
The E. W. Miller who died, had been
a, resident of Council Bluffs for nearly
twenty years, during which time ho was
employed In the Burlington freight office.
Nothing, however, was known about his
relatives, but among hia effects was found
this letter from Miss Maggie Miller of Sac
City. Word was sent to Sac City and Miss
Miller, supposing that It was her- brother
who had died, ordered the body sent there,
and the lodge of the Ancient Order of
United Workmen, to which Lineman Miller
belonged, forwarded $50 to defray the ex
pense of shipping the . remains to Sac
City, It happened that there was some
delay in forwarding the body and this
alone prevented the Miller family In San
City from receiving the corpse of a
E. W. Miller, the lineman, had been
working for two or three weeks in Council
Bluffs, and while here stopped at the
Metropolitan hotel on Broadway. About a
week ago he went to Wall Lake without
notifying his family, and they were con
sequently unaware that he had left here.
Sunday he decided to aurprise hia folks
and rode to Sac City on his bicycle.
Miller lost no time in hastening to Coun
cil Bluffs and the undertaker's, where the
body of E. W. Miller, the man who was
really dead lay. But for his return the
body would have been shipped to Sae City
early yesterday morning. Aa It Is, It will now
be Interred in Walnut Hill cemetery this
afternoon in a grave purchased by the

Council Decides to Go Ahead with
Fixing- Up Lldsett Property
- for Pest Honao.
The protest against the city using the Lld
gett property, which It recently purchased,
for a pest house or Isolation hospital, was
presented at the meeting of the city coun
cil last night and as had been -expected the
aldermen declined to take any notice of It
beyond ordering that the communication be
Died away In the municipal archives. The
protest was signed by about twenty resi
dents and property owners of that part of
the city who in the same' communication
served notice that- if the city authorities
tall to heed the protest, suit will be brought
to enjoin it from using the premises tor a
pest house or similar purpose. At a meet
ing of the Board of Health following the
city council session City Physician Hough
ton was authorised to secure the services of
a man and his wife, both to be smallpox
lmmuncs, who will live in the house and
assist in the care of whatever patients may
be sent there. The city physician was also
instructed to have the necessary furniture
placed in the house at once, as until the
premises are occupied the city cannot ob
tain any Insurance on the building. It waa
decided to maintain the present watchman
until such time as the city physician secures
the services of a man and his wife.
The Qroneweg aV Schoentgen company
asked permission to pave a strip nineteen
feet wide in front of its warehouse on South
Ninth street, between Broadway and First
avenue, with granite block In place of
brick, as provided tor in the contract with
Wlckham. The company desired this change
of material on account of the heavy hauling
at this particular point from and to their
warehouse platform. As there was some
question as to whether a change at this
time In the manner of paving the street
might not Invalidate the contract and pos
sibly nullify the assessment of the im
provement against the other property own
ers the matter was laid over for the opin
ion of the city attorney. The strip which
the Oroneweg ft Schoentgen company de
sired paved with granite block Is ninety feet
In length.
Alexander Wood and W. M. Piper, owners
of twenty-one acres lying east of South
First street, which they claim are used
solely for agricultural and horticultural
purposes and consequently exempt from
taxation for city purposes, asked that they
be refunded all city taxes which they had
paid on this property lor the years 189ft,
1900 and 1901, and that the tract be exempt
from the taxes of 1903 and all following
years. The request was referred to the
city solicitor.
A committee consisting of the mayor and
Aldermen Tlnley and Casper, wss appointed
to confer with the attorneys of Henry Locke
and ascertain for how much the latter's
personal Injury claim could be settled for,
The former city council at a private con-.
ference with Attorney John Llndt, in'
atructed the city attorney to confess judg
ment In the sum of 12,000, but Mayor Jen'
nlngs vetoed the resolution and a motion
to set aside the Judgment was filed In
the district court, where It has never been
pasted upon.
In the matter of the personal Injury suit of
Miss Lena Woods, the city solicitor wss
instructed to confess Judgment for $260, In
full settlement. Miss Woods asked $2,000
damages for injuries received while cross
ing the Fifth avenue bridge before it waa
C. E. H. Campbell was awarded the con
tract tor repairing the North First street
bridge over Indian creek on his bid of $845.
Specification for a new steel combination
bridge, with a forty-two-foot span over
Indian creek at Twenty-third avenue were
approved, and the city clerk Instructed to
advertise for bids.
Alderman McDonald called the attention
of the aldermen to the immediate neces
slty tor repairing the paving on South
f ourcn street, out wss met with a cry
of no money." Alderman Casper sug
geated that nothing be done until spring,
but as a compromise It was decided to taks
the brick with which the city had re
paired the old cedar block paving on Har
rlson from that street and use it to patch
up the holes on Fourth street with. It
wss suggested that the people on Harrison
street might object to this proposition,
but the council decided to run the risk.
When former Street Supervisor Taylor's
bill for his last month's salary was brought
up as usual, Alderman Tlnley suggested
that It be paid, and that If It was found
that he was Indebted to the city, his bonds
men could be held liable. Alderman Cas
per, however, objected, and on his motion
it was decided to ascertain the amount
which It was claimed Taylor was Indebted
to the city and offset that against hia claim
for salary.
Alderman Fleming railed attention to the
delay of Contractor Wlckham in carrying
out his sidewalk contract, and urged that
the council take some action to compel
Wlckham to do the work. Wlckham as
sured the council he was only too willing
to do the work, but that ha had been un
able to secure sufficient men. The council
took no action.

State Formally Accepts Portrait of
Rer. Dr. Salter Which Row
tanas In Historical
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Nov. 24. (Special.) State
Auditor Merrlam Is In the east and Is sup
posed to have been for the last two weeks
engaged In making sundry examinations ot
Insurance companies doing business In Iowa
and consulting with the Insurance men In
regard to their Iowa business. It Is learned
that one thing which is causing a great deal
ot concern among the insurance companies
Is that of the adoption of the new Iowa un
iform policy proposed by the state auditor
and prepared jointly by htm and by the at
torney general to conform to the Iowa stat
utes in regard to fire insurance. Only a few
of the companies doing business In the state
have, signified a willingness to adopt the
proposed policy, and even they are holding
back until they see what the big companlea
will do about it. The time Is fast approach
ing when they must decide, for if the in
coming state auditor Insists upon following
the line of policy laid down by the attorney
general and present state auditor they will
have to comply before they can continue
doing business In Iowa after January 1 next.
A circular has just been Issued by the west
ern manager for one of the leading eastern
lire insurance companies making an attack
on the proposed uniform policy and pointing
out where it Is alleged the policy would be
detrimental to business and where It ap
pears to not conform to the Iowa laws as
the insurance people interpret them. This
Is being freely distributed among Insurance
men of the state and country. Another has
come out with a circular letter advising the
companies to withhold approval of the pol
icy until a general convention or confer
ence of the managers can be held and an
agreement reached as to what line of policy
to pursue. The leading men In the com
panies which are oomblned on Iowa business
are said to favor refusal to accept the Iowa
policy, but so many of the smaller com
panies have Indicated they would like to
comply with it and regard the policy as
good that it is as yet uncertain what course
will be pursued. The new state auditor,
Senator B. F. Carroll, has not aa yet signi
fied what policy he will pursue and will not
take it up until after he goes Into office.

The H O 22 Company
Accession of Uncle of Baler Not Regarded
as Unpopular.
Influence, However, Begins to Wane
and Evil Effect la Not Longer
Fenred by tho Ministers
of His Majesty.
ST. PETERSBURG!. Nov. 24. It has been
learned that the recent summoning of Dr.
Merzhievsky, one of the foremost special
ists in nervous diseases, to the south of
Russia, which gave rise to the report that
he was going to' attend the -czar or the
czarina or both, their majesties having In
turn been alleged to be suffering from
melancholia, was to vlBit Balaklava, where
Grand Duke Nicholas Konstanlvltch Is de
tained as insane.
Some observers of the situation do not
believe that tha accession ot Grand Duke
Vladimir, uncle of the czar, to the throne
In the event of the czar's abdication and
the death of his brother. Grand Duke
Michael, the heir presumptive, would be
unpopular and they do not credit the re
ports that the advent to supreme power ot
the Vladimir family would materially alter
the existing state of affairs, as the masses
are ignorant in regard to the czar'a true
character and the educated people attach
merely subordinate importance thereto.
The possible effect of the Draconian sys
tem under a sterner ruler or the prospects
of a possible revolutionary movement Is
regarded as Idle speculation.
Mesmerist Controls the Ciar,
The latest reports about Phlllpp, the mes
merist, who Is said to have the czar com
pletely under his influence, are that he is a
former French physician, a naturalized
American, and that he has been In Russia
for about a year, living In the homes of
two Montenegrin princes who married Rus
sians. It is said that the czar granted Phlllpp
the right to practice medicine In Russia
and to wear the epaulettea ot a military
surgeon of rank of a councillor ot state,
which equals that of a general. Finally, It
is asserted that the court physician. Dr.
Ott, went to Llvadla and succeeded In per
suading the czar to forbid Phlllpp to prac
tice on the czarina, and the departure of
the ministers ot wsr, of the Interior and of
finance from Llvadla was Interpreted as a
sign that Phllipp's Influence was broken.
It is also said that those ministers Jointly
presented a report to his majesty discred
iting Phlllpp,- that the czar defended Phlllpp
and resented what he classed as Interfer
ence with his personal affairs, but finally
This Is looked upon In some quarters as
evidence that the optimistic statements on
the subject of the czar's mental condition
require limitation. Numerous persons who
have returned from Llvadla within the past
three days assert that the czar hai been
moody and disgusted because his early
hopes of introducing a happier regime In
Russia were frustrated by the reactionists,
whose intimidation imposed a distasteful
role upon him.
His majesty was also said to be in genu
ine fear that his abdication would be de
manded, which was strengthened by tho
Grand Duke Michael and the latter's dem
onstrative publlo appearances. Persons
knowing the czar assert that lt he was
forced to choose between the throne and do
mestlo happiness he would abdicate.
The acceptance of the lucrative but un
important administratorship of Apanages by
the czar's bosom friend, Prince Obolensky,
Is Interpreted as "going to cover" before
possible changes which might destroy the
value of his personal influence. In any east
the minister's departure from Llvadla pos
sibly Indicates that the crisis Is past.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. The State de
partment Is thoroughly well Informed of
the length to which Great Britain, Ger
many and other European powers propose
to go In their dealing with Venezuela.
Great Britain and Germany have, in fart,

any objections would be made to active
measures on their part to secure the col

count of violated concessions and the de
struction of their property, Incident ti tha

Venezuela, for several years past. The de
partment has been extremely cautious in
dealing with these Inquiries, but tho ctanre
of its replies in all cases has been set out
in the declaration of President Roosevelt
that the United States did not construe
the Monroe doctrine to mean that it should
