While the advent of the cold weather
nd the heavy fall of mow will Interfere
with the work on the construction of the
Great We'stera railroad and necessitate a
reduction 'In the number of men employed
along the line, operations will not be en
tirely suspended. A light force will be
kept at work all winter taking out the
cuts, ai this can be accomplished with
the aid of dynamite. The Hall Construc
tion company, which has. the contract for
the work In the city limits, will keep Its
regular force going all winter.
All along the line between Council
Bluffs and Harlan the subcontractors are
reducing their number of men and are pre
paring to go Into winter quarters. Wick
ham Bros, of this city are preparing to
ship a greater portion of their outfit to
Cairo, III., where they have a big con
tract on the Illinois Centra,!.
One of the big contractors, speaking of
the work, yesterday said: "While It Is
true that we are now compelled to reduce
the number of men working on account of
the snow and cold weather, the report that
work has been entirely suspended Is not
supported by the facts. We expect to con
tinue a certain amount of work all through
the winter, such as taking out the cuts and
getting ready for the tracklaylng, which
will be begun as soon as the weather Is
favorable In early spring. The work this
year was delayed by the heavy rains and
other unfavorable conditions. The work of
construction In the city will be kept going
all winter, and It would not surprise me
It most of the track In Council Bluffs will
be down before spring rolls around."

GREGORY MAY GET MONEY BACK
Haa Arrested at Hot Springs Thought
to Be One of Gaasj Who
The man giving the name of Gibson, un
dear arrest at Hot Springs, Ark., charged
with fleecing a wealthy Texan out of a
large sum of money in connection with an
alleged fake footrace, is said to be the
"Williams who figured In the deal at Webb
City, whereby Charles Gregory and Wil
liam Baker of the city were Induced to
part with over $3,000.
Olbson when arrested In Hot 8prlngs
had upward of $30,000 on his person, and
this money was attached by the proaecutlng
attorney, who sent out notices asking those
who had been fleeced in the alleged fako
footraces to file their claims against this
money. Messrs. Gregory and Baker re.
chived a notice, also an offer from an at
torney In Hot Springs to act for them.
but they decided to place their interests t
In the hands of the prosecuting attorney.
John R. Black of Grlswold, who was
fleeced at Webb City, but succeeded In get
ting his money back, and who recently ap
peared as one of the principal witnesses
In the suit against the members of tho
Webb City Athletlo association, left last
evening tor Hot Springs on behalf of Greg
ory and Buker to see what chance there
was of recovering any of , the money lost
by them at Webb City from the bank roll
found on Gibson, alias Williams.
County Attorney Klllpack expects to try
the case against Leon Lozier and Ed Moore,
charged with conspiring to defraud Gregory
and Baker, at this term of court.

First Case at Isolation Hospital.
The new Isolation hospital recently es

signed for women patients has Its first In
mete. The patient, however, Is a man,
Fred Klrby, who has been working on the
steel gang of the Chicago, Milwaukee ft
Bt. Paul railroad. Klrby Is suffering from
measles. He walked Into the police sta
tion late Saturday night, with a request
that a place be found for hlra where he
could be cared for, as he claimed be had
been refused admission at both hospitals.
City Physician Houghton decided the
only thing to do under the circumstances 1
was to send the man to the new isolation
hospital, as the pest house tor male pa- I
tlcnts near Mynster Springs could not be .
made available at such short notice. Klrby
has means to pay for his care, and atsted
he would not ask the city to be at any
expense In his case.

CONDUIT ORDINANCE GOES OVER
Committee of the City Cooaell Has
Had Ko Time to Con
The ordinance calling for the placing of
all telephone wires in underground con
duits within a certain area will not come
up for action at the meeting of the city
council tonight. At the last session of
the council the measure was referred to the
committee of the whole and no session of
the committee has been held. The time
for holding a meeting of the committee
when the ordinance will be considered will
be fixed at tonight's session of the city
It Is understood that certain opposition
to the ordinance by Interested parties has
developed, but that a majority of the alder
men are In favor of it, believing that It Is
for the public good and a forerunner of a
general ordinance requiring the placing of
all wires In underground conduits, as Is
being done In other cities.
It Is said that the passage of the ordi
nance will entail an expenditure on the
Nebraska Telephone company of from $75,
000 to $100,000 and that the company Is
hardly willing at this time to expend this
amount of money. On the other band, It
Is contended by those who favor the pass
age of the measure that by placing the
telephone wires underground the service
will be greatly Improved and that It will
not be far distant when all wires wilt bo
placed beneath the surface and the business
portion of the city relieved of the unsightly
poles along the streets.

BOOM STATE CONSTABULARY
Olabi Being Formed 111 Over Iowa to
Advocate Enactment of the Law,
INSURANCE COMPANIES NOT LEAVING
C. It. Gllmore Retires After Fifty
Years' Railroad Service, Large
Part of Which Has Been
with the Rock Island.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Dee. 14. (Special.) The
orgsnlzatlon of whst are termed "Loyal
Citizens' State Marshal clubs" has been
going on In Iowa rapidly of late, and It Is
now ststed thst there are twenty-five of
these clubs formed In the state, with mem
berships of from twenty-five to fifty. The
plan of the clubs Is to secure sentiment In
tevor of a new law authorizing the appoint
ment of district state marshals to look
after the enforcement of the liquor laws,
especially In those counties where saloons
are allowed. There will be district mar
shals with deputies In each town or com
munity, and all will be clothed with the
authority of sheriffs to go about the state
at any plsce and any time. Investigations
will be made regarding the manner In
which the laws are enforced and where
the marshals believe that the local officials
are not causing the strict enforcement of
the law they will take charge themselves.
These clubs are being formed by A. C.
Rankin, who during political campaigns la
employed as "the moulder orator," and he
Is having great success In the club work.
It Is expected that there will be clubs In
all the central counties of the state pre
vious to the elections for members of the
legislature next year, and that they will
have great Influence in that campaign.
Inanranee Companies Not Leaving-.
The report has been spread that the east
ern fire Insurance companies are abandon
ing Iowa because of unfriendly legislation,
and an effort to enforce strictly the laws
of the state. The statement has been
widely published that during the past year
a large number of companies have with
drawn from the state, and that because of
this withdrawal it Is practically impos
sible to place large lines of Insurance. In
surance Clerk Paul of the state auditor's
office states that there has been but one
Are Insurance company that haa withdrawn
from the state during the year, one at
Buffalo, and the reason of Its withdrawal
Is not known. Last year just before the
legislature met a number of the foreign
companies withdrew from the state os
tenslbly because of the discriminating tax
against them, and this withdrawal was
made the basis of a bill removing the tax,
so that foreign companies pay the same
as domestic companies. But not one of
the companies that Jiad withdrawn on ac
count of the excessive tax has returned to
the state since the tax was removed.
Retires from Long Service.
C. N. Gllmore leaves tomorrow for Michi
gan on a visit, and afterward will go east
and south. He has just retired from the
employment of the Rock Island railroad
after many years. He waa superintendent
of the old Des Molnea Valley railroad be
fore it became a part of the Rock Island
and has remained as superintendent of the
Fort Dodge division of the Rock -Island,
serving thirty years aa superintendent of
this road. He completed fifty years of
railroad experience November 1 and had
resigned to take effect at that time, but
the company haa been unable to adjust
itself to the change until now. He will be
succeeded by William Given, now superin
tendent for the Rock Island at Trenton,
JMo., but the company has been as yet un
able to find a man to take his place at
Trenton. Mr. Given was a conductor tor
many years under Gllmore and later train
master of the division.
