Although no official notice has been
served on them, It Is generally understood
that the saloonkeepers will obey the man
date of the county attorney and keep their
places closed today.
When ntked yesterday If he had served
notice on tho saloonmen directly County
Attorney Klllpack stated that It was not
necessary. "The saloonmrn," he said, "are
aware ot my Inentlon tn prosecute any one
who falls to close. Any saloonkeeper whose
place Is fpund open today will run up
against an Injunction suit. That It all I
have to say on the matter."
Mayor Morgan said he had not given the
police any new orders regarding the sa
loons as the matter of Sunday closing was
entirely In the hands of the county attorney-
In the absence ot any official orders, somn
ot the saloonmen were puzzled yesterday

Dr. Don Macrae, Jr., Thomas D. Metcalt
and Attorney James E. Trice returned last

a conference Friday evening with the In

with a view to closing an exclusive con

Dr. Macrae and his associates are plan
ning to organize a local Independent tele
phone company with a capital etock of
$20,000. The conference at Shelby, how
ever, It Is said, was not satisfactory to
the Council Bluffs promoters, as the Shelby
men were not inclined to enter into any
exclusive contract with another company.
The visit of Dr. Macrae and his asso
ciates to Shelby was the direct result of
the conference held here Thursday be
tween C. W. Cutshell of Shelby, the rep
resentative of the independent telephone
companies tn this section of the state, and
H. H. Van Brunt, chairman of the execu
tive committee of the Commercial club,
and Attorney Emmet Tinley. Mr. Van
Brunt and Attorney Tinley are vitally in
terested in a local independent telephone
company organized In this city about a
year ago, which weut before the city coun
cil for a franchise, but failed to secure it.
On his return to the city last evening
Dr. Macrae atatcd that his company would
be before the city council at its meeting
Monday or possibly a week later with
proposition. What the nature of the prop
osition would be Dr. Macrae declined to
make public at this time. Ha said, how
ever, that he and bis associates, realizing
tho need of connection with the indepen
dent telephone companies now operating tn
this part of the s'ate, meant business. His
company, he added, had no connection
whatever with the company formed by Van
Brunt and Tinley.

ing to defraud Charles Gregory and Wil
liam Barker out of nearly $10,000 at an
alleged fake toot race at Webb City, Mo.,

Friday. After the cross-examination, of
A'llllam Barker was concluded Alderman
Charles Huber was placed on the stand and
he proved the atar witness of the day.
Alderman Huber spoke from experience
and his testimony was given with consid
erable feeling. He told of how he aleo bad
been Induced on another occasion to take
a trip to Webb City and how $5,000 of his
hard earned money found Its way Into the
strong box ot the Webb City Athletic club,
Alderman Huber alwaya Insisted that he
recovered his money at the point of a re
volver, but nothing to this effect was
brought out in his testimony.
Charles Morse, a traveling man ot this
city, testified that h had ben offered a
"Job" at good mone) to Induce moueyed
men to become Interested In the sporting
events at Webb City, but that he had de
clined the offer.
W. D. Kyle of Red Oak testified that he
also had been victimized ' by Lozler and
Moore in the same manner that Gregory
and Barker were and that Loiter had told
him that he got as his share about $1,700
of the wad dropped by Gregory and Barker.
George 8. Martin, county Jailer, testified
that Losler while in the county Jail here,
after being brought back from Colorado,
told h!m that he got $1,800 of Gregory's
money and was entitled to It because he
had won the race.
At the close ot the evidence tor the state
counsel for the defendants moved to strlko
out Alderman Huber'a testimony and that

ment but directed that the Jury be placed

CUMMINS SOUNDS KEYNOTE
Candidacy for Renomination Formally
Launched at Dei Moines.
REITERATES PLATFORM OF PAST YEARS
Xot Only Stands by the Iowa Idea,
bnt Will Seek to Have the Ra
tional Convention of 1K4
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, la., March 14. (Special.)
The republicans of Iowa were today given
a political keynote from their candidates
ot this year for governor, for when Gov
ernor A. B. Cummins had been unanimously
recommended by the Polk county republi
can In convention for renomlnatlon and
was called before the convention for a
speech, he delivered himself of an utter
ance that set at rest all doubt as to what
will be hla attitude In the coming cam
paign and next year. The governor had
but recently returned from Washington
where he met the president and leaders of
congress. He did not assume to apeak for
any one but himself, but he made it very
plain that he will not recede In the least
from the advanced position be has taken in
support of the Iowa republican platform
in relation to the tariffs. The convention
nominated a county ticket and Indorsed the
candidacy of the governor, and when he
was called on he said in part:
Stands by Platform.
With rtepect to our platform of the last
two years upon the subject of the tariff let
me say at once that I believe In every worj
tnat we have uttered. Time and reflection
have but Intensified my views and I un
hesitatingly say that while 1 am not wedde 1
to any lorm of expression the Idea or
thought contained In our platform is not
only right, which ought to end the contro
versy, but Is. aa I am profoundly con
vinced, essential to the continued success
of the party, and I say to you frankly that
1 Intend to do whatsoever lies In my powe."
to Introduce Into the national platform of
next year the thought to which the repub
licans of Iowa have already given utter
ance. There is no conflict whatsoever be
tween the Iowa platform and anything that
has ever been declared ny a national con
vention, but It la necessary from time to
time In our platforms to apply the policies
and the principles of the party to analrj
as they at the time exist. In making thU
suggestion let It be fully understood that
this Is a controversy within the party,
from which the democrat must be rigor
ously excluded and from which they must
take no encouragement whatsoever, for th
reason that whatever may be the form of
expressing the doctrines of the party, we
are all loyal republicans, and we ail know
a government administered by the repub
lican party Is Letter than any government
that could possibly be administered by any
other political organization known to the
American people. With thexe preliminary
suggestions let me recur again to the
We are all profound believers In the
policy of protection. Notwithstanding the
statement of an eminent republican, ia
cently made, I venture to pay that protec
tion la not only practically sound, but
theoretically sound. It Is not only vindi
cated by the experience of our people, but
can be defended by the highest and most
exact processes of abstract reason.
One more suggestion and I shall have
finished. I have heard some criticism re
specting that clause in our platform of last
year which declares that we favor any
modification of the tariff schedules neces
sary to prevent their affording a ahelter to
monopoly. It ought to be true whether It
Is or not I leave to your Judgment that thj
democrats should have a monopoly at least
of the perversion and misconstruction of
this phrase In the platform. In my opin
ion It declares a fundamental truth In
political and Industrial economy. It does
not contain the suggestion even that tha
tariff is In any wise responsible for ths
existence or the evil of those large cor
poratloi.a which are in this day commonly
The resolutions specifically endorse the
platforms of 1901 and 1902 and the can
didacy of Cummins for governor and
Charles A. Bishop for district Judge.
Securing- Facts on Land Values.
The state executive council of the state
of Iowa has directed its secretary to send
out to all county auditors in the state a
request for some definite lnformrtlon on
which to base action relating to the as
sessment of real estate when this comes
before the council as a board of review In
July. The Information sought la the state
ment of the sales of real estate for the
last half of 1902, giving each tract sold
separately and the exact amount paid, as
shown ot record, excluding nominal sales
and trades, and giving also at the same
time the equalized assessed valuation
placed on the same tracts of land by the
assessors and local review boards as ot
January 1 last. The executive council will
thus have before It some definite knowl
edge of the actual conditions to the state
so as! to determine to what extent the as
sessors and local reviewing boards have
sought to comply with the law, which
makes It obligatory to have the assessment
made on an actual cash basis with one
fourth of the same tor taxing purposes,
Tha council has already arranged to se
cure tho names of every assessor In tha
state and the president of every reviewing
board, so that when the information is se
cured. If more is desired or any special
information Is desired, communication can
bo had at once. It Is the Intentlou of tho
state board to give the assessment matter
the most thorough consideration ever given
the subject. The tendency for severs! years
lias been to allow the assessments to drop
down and to become uneven. The state
board has declared that It will Insist upon
a legal assessment at this time.
Settla with Prlaters.
The state executive council has effected
a settlement with the state printer for the
biennial period ended January 1 last, This
is the first time In tho history of the state
that any actual settlement has ever been
made with the state printers or binders.
It wss made on the basis of a cash settle
ment for the amount of supplies drawn
by the printer and not accounted for in
hla Invoice nor used by ttM state. Here
tofore It has been customary to allow tho
printer to draw the supplies and make no
actual accounting, but under a new law
everything must be accounted for.
Endorse Clarke for Speaker.
The republicans of Dallas county held
their primary election today to aelect a
county ticket. Representative George W,
