The company's business,. President Tost
admitted, had outgrown Its present rented

make any extensive Improvements while

The city council, after holding a two
hours' session Monday night behind closed
doors In the mayor's office, adjourned
shortly before midnight without having ar
rived at any definite conclusion In regard
to the Independent telephone franchise or
dinances. Each alderman appears to have
a different opinion on tCa matter. Some
favor the proposition of Dr. Macrae's com

that submitted by H. H. Van Brunt's com.

favor of the council first deciding on ex

dependent telephone service for the city, ,
and then having the city solicitor draft

of the companies were willing to accept
such an rrdinance, then the council should

Alderman Fleming of the Fifth ward
said he was Inclined to act cautiously.
Past experience showed that the city, In
granting franchises, had been grievously
victimised. He cited as Instances the
franchise granted the Lke Manawa Rail
road company, which subsequently sold Its
charter to the Omaha A Council Bluffs
Railway and Bridge company, and the
franchise granted the Bluff City Gas and
Electric Light company, which, as soon as
it secured the charter, disposed of It to
the old Council Bluffs Gas and Electrle
Light company, reorganised under the name
of the Cltixens' Oss and Electric company,

lighting of the city Is now . furnished hy

In his statement that he would have to be
satisfied that neither of the two companies

Interested In the two new local Independent
companies deny any Intention of selling

DE3 MOINES. Ia., March 24. (8peclal.)
If the recommendations of the War board
as to the regulations for the national guard
companies affiliated with the regular army
are put into force by Secretary Root It will
add at least 1.000 men te the four regiments
of the Iowa natlontl guard. This will be
strenuously opposed by Adjutant General
Byers, who realises that thla high standard
Is Impossible of attainment even tn Iowa,
where the guard Is much better treated than
In the average of states. The War board haa
recommended that tho minimum of member
ship In the guard companies shall be
sixty-five men for Infantry and cavalry.
At preaent the number of men In the com
panies of Iowa averages about forty-five.
The companies are expected to be of about
fifty strength, and General Byers, when he
was In Washington to attend to the prelim
inaries of the bill and assist In urging it
on congress, suggested a minimum of fifty
for the reorganized companies. But he de
clares that sixty-five Is too high and that
if It Is enforced a number of Iowa com
panies will be forced out of existence be
cause they are In towns too small to main
tain companies of that size. Then the ap
propriations for the Iowa guard do not
contemplate any such strength, and the
appropriations would have to be Increased
to meet the changed conditions. General
Byers will protest to Secretary Root against
the proposed minimum- requirement of
membership and ask that it be placed not
higher than fifty. In this It Is probable
that a number of the adjutant generals of
western states will agree. In other respects
the decisions of the War board as to the
Intent of the new law are heartily approved
by the officials of the Iowa national guard.
The fcurth election in the Fifty-fourth
regiment, comprising the companies of
southeastern Iowa, was held last night,
and returns were received sufficient to In
dicate that Captain Frank E. Wetherell of
Oskaloosa has been elected. There were
four candidates Wetherell, Smeenk, Hay
nle and Kennedy.- The first three elections
resulted In no choice. The election of
Monday night favored the Oakaloosa man
who Is one of the most popular captains
in the regiment and has been at the head
of the company for three years. The con
test was a friendly one all through.
