The report of Louis Zurmuehlen, who had
been employed by the board of directors to
solicit members and collect dues, showed
that the club has 317 members In good
standing to start Its first year with. Mr.
Zurmuehlen stated that It was his opinion
that the membership could be Increased to
400 within a few months.
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 wagon 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 D00 hands, and
other projects which the commlttro Is not
prepared to make public at this time. It
told of the steps taken to form a manu
facturers' and Jobbers' association for the
purpose of organizing trade excursions. It
also referred to the abandonment of Coun
cil Bluffs by the Union Paclfiic as Its
terminal and urged that the city take the
matter up at onoe.
L. M. Shubert brought tho matter of Inde
pendent telephone lines before the meeting
and suggested that the club take steps to
Induce the independent companies In thla
section of the state to establish an ex
change In this city. Dr. Macrae also spoke
on the tame matter, urging the necessity
of connection with these independent com
panies. A communication was read from the As
sociated Charities in which that organiza
tion told of its need for a suitable building
and suggested that the Commercial club
erect such a building and lease It to the
association until such time as It can raise
the money to pay for It. Such a building
as was needed, the association wrote, would
cost about $8,000. This and the matter of
the Independent telephone companies were
referred to the proper committees.

INQUEST ON YOUNG MADSEN
Coroner's Jury Absolves the Lighting.
Company from Any Blame
The inquest over Eddie Madsen, th 18-year-old
boy who waa 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 Its poles carrying heavy
voltage wires. It alao discussed a recom
mendation that the company be required
to place Its wires underground, but as the
members were not agreed on this subject
it wst not Included In the verdict. Charles
Swalne. Ovide Vlen and William Roper
comprised the Jury. ,
Horace Greer, L. Harle, Kenneth Harmon
and Earl Hart, the lads who were playing
with ddle Madsen 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 was a',
the scene of the accident a few minutes
after the 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
any wire with a voltage of 1,000 or more
as a live wire regaidless of insulation.
E. A. Sweet, electrician of the Citizens'
Gas and Electric company, testified that
the wires which young Madsen caught bold
of carried a current of 2.300 volts. He de
scribed the manner In which the two wires
were scorched at the points where young
Madsen grasped them.
The funeral will be held this morning
at 11 o'clock from Trinity Methodist
church. Burial will be in Falrview cem
etery. Rev. A. E. BurlS will conduct the
Matters In District Coort.

JAMES WALKER GETS LIMIT OF THE LAW
Jndaie Given In Passing Sentence
Makes Severe Stricture on Both
Walker and Harry
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, March 4. (Special.) The
board of directors of tho State Department
of Agriculture held a meeting today for
regular business, and among other things
appointed a committee to confer with the
board of trustees of the State college at
Ames in regard to the selection of a presi
dent for that Institution. The committee
appointed consists of ex-Governor 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. 8. F. Curtles of the chair of animal
husbandry of 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 the
late Dr. Bearshear. The committee of tho
board assigned to investigate has never
made any kind of report on the subject,
for no person has been found whom tho
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 hi
present position, where he has given the
college a national standing, and he pre
ferred to remain there. But the senti
ment among the agricultural classes of
tho state has been turning toward Prof.
Curtlss and it is believed now he will be
Walker Keta the Limit.
In the district court today Judge Given
sentenced James Walker, colored, to eight
years In the penitentiary for the murder of
Isaac Finkelsteln, on conviction for man-
elaurhter. The Judge, In passing sentence.
was 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
Finkelsteln 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 Finkelsteln, and the motive for it was
found in his unreasoning hatred of tha
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 bis part In the crime.
Exposition Commission Meets.
The Iowa commission of the 8t. Louis
exposition met this afternoon and trans
acted general business. The commission
divided up the money that was left after

the chairmen of the different committees
were read and considered, and each member
stated what was desired fti the way of
special features. The contract for the
building at $34,000 was. approved and signed
by the contractors.

islature Raahlnc Bills
TIERRE. S. D., March 4. (Special Tele
gram.) With the closing days of the ses
sion at hand the senate Is passing up talk
and rushing bills. It, unlike the house, has
no measures to resurrect, as It passes
everything which comes along and does 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 county 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 employes 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
Spearfish 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 Sprlngflald
Normnl; 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 Beadle, Kingsbury, Spink
The house at Its morning session passed
house bills authorizing the Board of Chari
ties to purchase certain lands at Red field
asylum; appropriating $2,000 for a cottage
at the penitentiary; to prevent the unlaw
ful appropriation of stock on the free 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 States
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 Gross made a fight on several minor
provisions, but the bill was adopted as re
turned by the committee with the exception
of an addition making provisions for the
Womsn's Board of Inspection of Charitable
and Penal Institutions. Price made a hard
fight to secure 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 presented
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 passage 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
eetrays by publication; requiring state
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.
