The attempt of tbe Board of Review to
aaser the Nebraska Telephone company on
Ita franchise also will be resisted on the
ground thst the stste executive council
Is the only body which can, under the
statutes of the state, fix the assessment
of such corporations. In view of tbe fact
that the City Board of Review deemed It
advisable to assess the telephone compsny
$40,000 in addition to whatever assessment
may be placed on it by the state executive
council, tbe company baa Died the follow
ing protest, which will be presented at the
meeting of the board this morning:
The Nebraska Telephone company
hereby enters Its objection to the assess
ment of $40,000 on Its property In this
city, made by your honorable body on
the 11th day of April, 1B08. for the reason
that said assessment is not warranted by
and Is contrary to the statutes of the
state of Iowa, and amounts to and Is a
double assessment ot said property.
Section 1330 of the code of 1897 provides
thst all telephone property In the state
hall be assessed by the executive coun
cil, and chapter xlll. of the Twenty-eighth
general assembly provides as follows:
''Bald assessment shall Include all prop
arty -of every kind and character whatso
ever, real, personal or mixed, used by
said companies In the transaction of tele
graph and telephone business; and the
property so Included In said assessment
shall not be assessed In any other manner
man as provmea in mis- act.
Bald act further provides that telephone
companies shall be assessed by the ex
ecutive council and that their assessment
shall be certified to by the county auditors
and that the county auditor of each
county shall certify the same to the vari
ous townships and municipalities within
the county and that the proportionate
amount of property In each township or
municipality shall be assessed by the local
authorities as the property of Individuals
la assessed in such locality.
It will be readily aeen by the above that
the only authority to assess telephone
companies lies in the executive council.
This assessment being made, the as
ment made by your honorable body would
amount to a double taxation of the prop
erty of this complainant and your action
of making said assessment of 140,000 Is
Illegal. First, because made without au
thority or contrary to the authority given
by statute, and, aecond, because such as
sessment would be a double taxation and
consequently contrary. to the constitution
of the state of Iowa.
Protests will also be made against the
action of .the board In raising the assess
ments of the following firms: The Harls
Haaa Drag company, from 48,860, to -$50,000;
Keller-Farnsworth Furniture company, from

Form .evr Eisteddfod Association.
A meeting of the Welsh people of this
city resulted in the formation of a perma
nent organization to plan an Iowa
eisteddfod, to be conducted wholly In Des
Moines and all meetings to be held here.
The permanent organization was effected
with Richard Truman as president, T. F.
Morgan aa secretary and William Preea as
treasurer. The association will prepare to
hold a great musical festival In Des Moines
next winter. The Iowa Eisteddfod asso
ciation, with headquartera at Ottumwa, of
which Thomaa J. Phillips Is president, will
not affiliate with the newly formed asso
ciation, but will maintain a aeparat or
ganization. It la declared by the ues
Moines men who have formed the new asso
ciation that the officials who conducted
the eisteddfod last winter hav never given
a proper accounting of the money taken in.
Dismissed from Police Force.
A. A. Groves, son-in-law of Mayor-Breni

has been dismissed by the Board of Fire
and Police Commissioners, following a trial
In which he wa charged with taking a tar
get rifle from tbe office ot Police Judge STI
vara three or four week ago. Th witnesses
who testified before the board were Judge
Silvers and Officers Crawford and Skinner,
the latter of whom is aaid to have seen
Groves take th rifle from the Judge's pri
vate apartments adjoining the courtroom.
The evidence was so conclusive that 'tbe
commissioners decided there was no ques
tion as to tbe facts and Instead of sus
pending him for thirty days he was dis
missed. Building Material Scarce.
The Board of Control let the contract to
a Dea Moines firm for the new power plant
at the State Orphans' home in Davenport.
Last week the contractors went to Daven
port to prepare to begin work. They found
it absolutely impossible to buy a brick In
either Davenport, Mollne or Rock Island
and will have to wait until bricks are made
to order. Tbe scarcity of building ma
terial of all kinds has caused much an
noyance to the contractor on tbe eta's
work and all building will be slow on this
account. The bad weather In parte of the
atate haa also had a bad effect. The work
on the new power house at the Fort Madi
son penitentiary will be commenced at one
with convict labor.

the Potomac with a Dew two-track railroad
bridge. Tb compsny ha been at work for
more thsn a year In building piers for tb
nw structure. These plsrs ar almost
completed, but owing to th enormous de
mand for steel structural supplies, there
Is not a plant In th country which would
undertake to build th new bridge thla
year. It seemed, therefore, that th rail
road would be compelled to abandon tb
project for changing It method ot enter
ing Washington from the south for a year
or two longer. A way out of the difficulty,
however, has been discovered. At present
the Pennsylvania crosses the Delaware oa
a two-track bridge at Trenton. Th ma
sonry work for a four-track brldgs to tak

Pennsylvania railroad hav, therefore, con
ceived of the Idea of bringing tb old bridge

same on the two piers now In plsc. Work
to this end will be darted at once, aa it la
confidently thought that befor winter cat

Richardson Tarns to Masonry.
Scottish Rite Mason throughout the
country, and particularly those connected
with the southern Jurisdiction, will be in
terested In the statement recently made by
the grand commander of th southern Jur
isdiction, James D. Richardson, leader of
the minority on the floor of congress, that
he will leave politics to devote all hi time
In the future to th furtherance of Scottish
Rite Masonry. Jams Dsnlel Richardson
holds todsy th most distinguished office la
Scottish Rite Masonry, that of grand com
mander of the supreme council ot the
thirty-third degree, Scottish Rite Masons
ot th southern Jurisdiction.
Mr. Richardson also enjoys th distinc
tion ot being the ycungst grand commander
chosen to preside over tbe counc 1 of thirty
third degree, Scottish Rite Masons, south
ern Jurisdiction, having been elected grjtnd
commander at the meeting of th supreme
council in October, 1901.
Friends 'Expected It.
His friends In Washington .have felt for
some time psst thst Mr. Richardson would
leave politics to devote his whole atten
tion to the furtherance of Scottish Rite
Masonry. While It Is not expected that h
will resign from th Fifty-eighth congress,
it is confidently thought that tb Fifty
ninth congress will not see James D. Rich
ardson a member of that body. In which
he has sat continuously since the Forty
ninth congress. Politics does not hold out
to the grand commander ot southern Scot
tish Rite Masons. the enticement It once
did, and, recognizing that the membership
of that great body of Masonry haa some
rights to his time and best ability. In view
of the commending position which they
have given him, he feels that some younger
man should be entrusted with the policies
of the Fifth congressional district of Ten
nessee and he be permitted to devote his
life to the cause for which ha standa.
