Executive Committee Busy.
The report of Secretary McDonald of the
executive committee showed that this body
had not been Idle since its formation a
month ago. It told of the efforts of the
committee to Induce the South Omaha pack
ing houses to establish cooling or supply
stations in this city in place of delivering
meat by open wsgon from Omaha. But one
of the packing houses has agreed to com
ply with the wishes of the dealers in this
city, the others protesting on the ground
of expense. The committee in Its report
states It has several enterprises in view,
among the number being a horse .collar
factory, which will employ from fifty to
seventy-five people; a shoe factory, which
will give employment to COO hands, and
other projects which the committee is not
prepared to make public at this time. It
told of the steps taken to form a manu
facturers' snd Jobbers' association for the
purpose of organizing trade excursions. It
also referred to the abandonment of Coun
cil Bluffs by the Union Paclflic as its
terminal and urged that tha city take the
matter up at onoe.
L. M. Shubert brought tho matter of inde-
I pendent telephone lines before the meeting
una suggesica mat me ciud taxo steps to
Induce the Independent companies in this
section of the state to establish an ex
change in this city. Dr. Macrae also spoke
on the same matter, urging the necessity
of connection with these Independent com
panies. A communication was read from the As
sociated Charltlea in which that organiza
tion told of Its need for a suitable building
and auggested that the Commercial club
erect such a building and lease it to the
association until such time aa it can raise
the money to pay for it. Such a building
aa was needed, the association wrote, would
cost about $8,000. Thla and the matter of
the independent telephone companies were
referred to tho proper committees.

INQUEST ON YOUNG MADSEN
Coroner's Jury Abaolvea the Manilas)
Company from Any Blame
The Inquest over Eddie Madsen. the IS-year-oil
boy who was electrocuted Tuesday
afternoon at a result of climbing one of
the electric light company's poles, resulted
in the Jury bringing In a verdict In which
no blame was attached to the company.
At the same time the Jury recommended
that the Electric Light company place dan
ger signals on Ita poles carrying heavy
voltage wires. It also discussed a recom
mendation that the company be required
to place ita wires underground, but aa the
members were not greed on thla subject
It was not Included In the verdict. Charles
Swaine. Ovide Vlen and William Roper
comprised the jury. ,
Horace Greer, L. Harle, Kenneth Harmon
and Earl Hart, the lada who were playing
with fcddie Madien at the time of the acci
dent, testified. Their stories corroborated
the statement made by Greer shortly after
the accident. Alderman Israel Lovett, who
Is an electrician, testified that he waa a,
the scene of the accident a few minutes
after th" death of the boy and made an in
vestigation. He found that the pole steps
started eight feet from the ground, so that
the boy must have climbed on the fence or
adjoining shed to have reached the first
step. Electricians, he testified, considered
sny wire with a voltage of 1.000 or more
as a live wire regardless of insulation.
E. A. Sweet, electrician of the Citizen'
Gaa and Electric company, testified that
the wires which young Madsen caught hold
of carried a current oT 2,300 volts. He de
scribed the manner In which the two wires
were scorched at the polnta where young

JAMES WALKER GETS LIMIT OF THE LAW
Jadae Given In Passing; Sentence
Makes Severe Strlctare on Both
Walker and Harry
(From a Staff Correapondent.)
DES MOINES. March 4 (Special.) The
board of directors of tho State Department
ot Agriculture held a meeting today for
regular business, and among other things
appointed a committee to confer with the
board of trustees ot the State college at
Ames In regard to the selection of a presi
dent for that institution. The committee
appointed consists of ex-Oovernor Packard,
Marshalltown; C. W. Phillips, Maquoketa,
and John Lcdgerwood, Leon. It Is the
sentiment of the State Board of Agricul
ture that the president selected should be
Prof. S. F. Curtis of the chair of animal
Wiusbar.dry ot the college, and this com
mittee was appointed with a view to urging
upon the college board the selection ot
Prof Curtlss. The trustees have made no
progress whatever In the selection of a
president of the college to succeed ths
late Dr. Bearshear. Tho committee of tho
board assigned to investigate has never
made any kind of report on the subject,
for no porson has been found whom the
committee would care to recommend. The
name of Prof. Curtlss was suggested at
the outset, but at that time it was be
lieved he would be more useful In bli
present position, where he has given the
college a national etanding, and he pre
ferred to remain there. But the senti
ment among the agricultural classes of
tho state has been iurning toward Prof.
Curtlss and it is believed now he will be
Walker Gets the Limit.
In the district court today Judge Given
sentenced James Walker, colored, to eight
years In the penitentiary for the murder of
Isaac Flnkelsteln, on conviction for man
slaughter. The Judge, in passing sentence,
waa especially severe on the defendant,
declaring his belief that the evidence had
shown him to be guilty of entering Into
a conspiracy with Harry Levlch to kill
Flnkelsteln and to have actually done tho
deed. The judge scored Levlch, who has
already been acquitted on the same charge,
and declared that the evidence in this case
showed beyond any doubt that It waa
Levlch who employed the colored man to
kill Flnkelsteln, and the motive for It was
found in his unreasoning hatred of lha
dead man. These declarations of the court
created a sensation, as they were unex
pected and somewhat contrary to popular
belief, and there are indications that some
effort will be made to prosecute Levlch in
some other way for his part in the crime.
Exposition Commission Meets.
The Iowa commission ot the St. Louis
exposition met this afternoon and trans

building at $34,000 wasapproved and signed
by the contractors.

GETTING READY FOR WINDUP
Both Branches of Booth Dakota Lea
lalatnre nnshlns; Bills
TIERRE. S. D., March 4 (Special Tele
gram.) With the closing days of the ses
sion at hand ths senate Is passing up talk
and ruBhlng bills. It, unlike the house, hss
no measures to resurrect, as It passes
everything which comes along and doea It
without talk, which proceeding has so far
cleared that body of the necessity of morn
ing sessions. At today's session the senate
passed the senate bill to create rounty and
town boards of health; the general appro
priation bill; an appropriation for a sewer
at the deaf mute school; a deficiency ap
propriation for employee of the senate;
empowering boards of charities and of re
gents of education to expend money for in
surance of buildings In course of erection.
House bills passed as laws by the senate
were the appropriation for the deaf mute
school; for the Madison Normal. The
Spearflsh Normal bill was tangled In some
manner yesterday and again taken up today
and given first and second readings and
made a special order for tomorrow, when It
will pass. It also passed the Springfield
Normal; State university; Yankton asylum:
the penitentiary, and the St. Louis fair ex
hibit. Besides these appropriations house
bills were passed carrying deficiencies for
Spearfllsh. the penitentiary and other Insti
tutions. The Ninth circuit bill was passed
after defeating several attempts to amend
and that circuit Is row assured, containing
the counties of Bosdle, Kingsbury, Spink
The house at Its morning session passed
house bills authorising the Board of Chari
ties to purchase certain lands at Redfleld
asylum; appropriating $2,000 for a cottage
at the penitentiary; to prevent the unlaw
ful appropriation of stock on the tree range;
fixing terms of court In the Fifth circuit;
providing for election of road overseers;
ballot law; Incensing the penalties for
burglary. At the afternoon session of the
bouse, on motion of Allen, the adverse
committee report on the taxation of prod
ucts of mines was changed to a favorable
A bill was introduced by the irrigation
committee granting to the United State
government a tract of land In Aurora county
for artesian well purposes.
Governor Herreld returned a veto on the
bill which attempted to amend the liquor
law by providing a penalty for buying
liquor for a minor or Inebriate, which veto
was based on tho ground that by changing
words and punctuation the law would be a
meaningless jumble of words and the effect
of the present law killed. The veto was
sustained by a veto of 75 to 1.
The bill to appropriate $10,000 for build
ings on the State fair grounds at Huron
was called up and discussion cut off by the
previous question. It failed to pass for
lack of two-thirds majority, but reconsid
eration was reserved for tomorrow.
The house went Into committee of the
whole on the general appropriation bill, in
which GroBg made a fight on aeveral minor
provisions, but the bill was adopted as re
turned by the committee with the exception
of an addition naklng provisions for the
Woman' Board of Inspection of Charitable
and Penal Institutions. Price made a hard
fight to Becure an Increase In the appropria
tion for the Yankton asylum, but failed.
The bill passed by 74 to 2.
A number of senate bills were prejented
and given first and second reading and
committee reports returned upon them at
once. Everything Is now clear for the final
cleanup, which will keep both houses busy
from tomorrow until some time Friday
The senate held a night session and
passed senate bills to punish cruelty to
children and cruelty to animals. Laws
were made by the resage of house bills for
Inspection of scales; protecting property of
owners of bottling plants; providing for
keeping of record of real estate transfers 'n
auditor's office; requiring report of brand
on estray stock to be reported to state
brand Inspector: giving notice of taking up
ectrays by publication; requiring Htate
treasurer to give 'bond cf $500,000; giving
county boards authority to lay out high
ways along city boundary lines; appropriat
ing money for publication of reports of
State Horticultural society; providing that
where parents send children to feeble
minded school and leave the state they
must remove the patient with them or make
provisions for expenses of care.
