BOARD MEETS ON THE QUIET
One Member SlipLted Tilki and Lett the
Cat Oat of the Bag.
TROUBLE IN HIGH SCHOOL CONSIDERED
Qaeatlon of Introdnetion of Maaaal
. Training and Financial Poller
of tne Board. .Also
Taken I p.
The fact that the Board of Education has
been holding a number of secret sessions
recently has been made public through, the
talk of one. of the members who had been
present at some, but not all, of the meet
ings. The- member in question took um
brage at not being Invited .to attend some
of the private sessions and this let the tat
out of the bag. '
Several of these meetings have been held
In' the private office of Superintendent
Clifford in the high school building, the
object of them being to discuss the ques
tion of manual training, which Jt Is pro
posed to establish In the high school next
year, and to outline the financial policy of
the board for the ensuing fiscal year.
The last of these private sessions was
held Wednesday afternoon in Superintend
ent Clifford's office, the purpose of which,
it. Is said, was to take some action relative
to the recent trouble In the high school
caused by the changing of the pupils' books
from their proper desks ond In some In
stances from the proper classrooms. This
mischief, said to be the work of certaiti
pupils who got Into tha building after the
close of school, prevented the usual studies
for almost an entire day until matters
were straightened out and the books re
distributed. It was reported that the
board had decided to recommend the sus
pension of the pupllB guilty of the depreda
tion, but . forbore taking such action when
the guilty ones appeared befrre the board
and expressed regret and agreed to pay
all damages which bad been sustained by
their action. i -
' As a result of the trouble at the high
school the board at the secret session
Wednesday ordered that all teachers' here
after must, at the close of school, see that
' the windows of their respective rooms are
! fastened and must' lock the doors when
I leaving their rooms for the day, and that
I after that time the janitor of each building
will be held responsible for It. The board
I also decided to renew Its offer of $25 re
ward for the detection of anyone Injuring
any of the school buildings or school prop
Members of the board when seen yes
terday admitted the holding of these meet
ings,' but denied that there was any in
tention to keep the business of the board
I from the public and that the newspaper
l reporters would have been welcome. It
has been the custom for the secretary of
the board to notify the newspapers of the
meetings of the board, but this was not
done in the case of the recent meetings
held 1n Superintendent Clifford's office.
ELECTION AGITATES WOMEf
Rule Adopted Regarding? Nominations
' Is Objectionable to Some of
The approaching election In the Council
Bluffs Woman's club Is proving an all ab
sorbing topic among the members. The
chief interest centers around the. election
of a president, for which much coveted
office there are several candidates. The
' question now principally agitating the
members of the club In whether the nom
', Inatlon Of candidates to be made at a meet
ing tomorrow, will preclude the naming of
any further candidates on the day of elec
tion, to be held Friday, June 6.
At a recent meeting of the board of
directors of the club It was decided that
this year the nominations should be made
one month prior to the election and that
no other candidates besides those named
at this time would be considered on the
day of election. This Innovation In the
methods of the club la not at all agreeable
to a number of the members and there
Is talk of them refusing to abide by. the
action of the board. The protestants con
tend that to adopt such a rule would be
unfair to the members joining the club
during Msy, as It would practically prevent
them from having any voice In the selection
of officers for the ensuing year. It Is stated
that an effort will be made at the 'meet
ing tomorrow afternoon to have this new
rule rescinded so as to permit of further
nominations on the day of election.
Those most prominently mentioned In
connection with the ' presidency are Mrs.
C. O. Saunders, Mrs. O. H. Richmond. Mrs.

FRUITS ARE BADLY DAMAGED
Urowera I'nable to Stay Delaltely !!
How Great the) Injnry
That the frost of Wednesday night baa
caused considerable damage to the fruit
crop In the vicinity of Council Bluffs and
surrounding towns there remains but little
douht. but. fruitgrowers - stated yesterday
that It would be several days before the
exact damage could be estimated. Reports
received yesterday in the city Indicated that
the apple and plum crops would suffer most,
although all small fruits had been more or
J. P. Hess, one of the largest fruitgrowers
In this section of the state, gave it as his
opinion yesterday that about half of the
blossoma on the apple, plum and cherry
trees In this vicinity had been killed by
the frost. The grapevines, as far as he was
able to ascertain yesterday, appeared to
have suffered least.
Frank P. Bradle:r, the owner of extensive
orchards at Glenwood. estimated that the
frcst of Wednesday night would result In
the destruction of half of the apple crop
In that vicinity.
The favorable weather of the last few
weeks had brought out the fruit trees ear
lier than usual, and in this vicinity the
trees were a mass of bloom. The meager
reports to hand yesterday Indicate that the
cherry trees suffe.ed mcst. but that all
small fruit suffered considerably. Tn frs
wss entirely unlocked for and tha resultant
dsmsge has proven sore blow to the fruit
growers, who were looking forward to a
most favorable sessoa.
Find More Atolea Goods.
Constsbls Albert I of Justice Ouren's
court and Detective Murphy, accompanied
by P. V. O'Neill, a special officer of the
Chicago Northwestern railroad, made an
other search yesterday of the borne of Otto
Paul, a former employe of. the j-aH.road..od
yoearthsa an additional large quantity of
stolen goods. In addition tu a number of
tools and other articles belonging to the
railroad company, the officers discovered
in the cellar goods which, It Is alleged,
were stolen from a freight car fn the local
yards last December, and of which they
had been unable to secure any trace. Paul,
for whose arrest a warraut was Issued at
the time of the first search of his home. Is
still missing, although the authorities stste
they have secured trace of his where
abouts and- that his arrest will be but a
matter of a short time. Paul Is alleged
to have carried on his thieving operations
for the last two years, If not longer.
NO STRIKE IN COUNCIL BLUFFS
Labor Lnlona and Employers tor Most
Part Have Already 8la;ne! .
No serious trouble Is looked for in Coun
cil Bluffs between organized labor and the
employers, despite reports to the contrary.
The relations between the employed and
the employers In this city are at present
most cordial and there will be no walkout
on this side of the river.
Speaking of the locsl situation a promi
nent member of the Council Bluffs Trade
and Labor assembly said last bight: "There
will be no strike of organized labor In
Council Bluffs today. All of the old unions
are satisfied with existing conditions: The
bosses have signed the scalrs demanded and
the relations between the members of the
old unions and their employers Is per
fectly hsrmonlous. Some of the recently
organled unions may have some slight
troubles of their own, but they will be soon
settled. For Instance, the Teamsters' union,
which has but lately organized, has not
yet succeeded In getting Its scale signed
but the bosses undoubtedly will yield, and
I do not look for any trouble from that
quarter. The Bartenders' union, another
recent organization, has as yet not alto
gether fixed up matters to suit It, but the
differences now existing will soon be
straightened out. I do not look for any
organized labor troubles on this side of
the river, however threatening conditions
appear on the Nebraska side."
Matters In District Court.
The trial . of the suit of former Street
Supervisor G. C. Taylor against the city of
Council Bluffs to recover. $30 on back!
salary was begun before Judge Wheeler In
the district court yesterday. The city sets
up a counterclaim of $100, alleging that
Taylor had failed to account for that
amount in connection with poll tax worked
out on the streets. Mayor Morgan, City
Clerk Phillips and the aldermen were all
In. court as witnesses. The city failed
signally to produce any evidence which the
court would ' admit to show, that Taylor
had tampered pay roll vouchers as alleged.
The case Is expected to go to the jury to
day. The sealed verdict returned Wednesday
night In the suit of H. W. Miller against
the State Pavings bank was tn favor of the
defendant. The case involved a $100 de
posit which the bank claimed had been
credited twice, once to the account of the
plaintiff and also to the account of bis
son. The plaintiff claimed that two de
posits of $100 each had been made on the
same day and that both accounts were en
titled to a credit In this amount.
A. L. Thomas, whose suit against the
motor company resulted In a verdict for
the defendant company, has Bled a motion
for a new trla'.

DES MOINES, April 30. (Special.) This
was Arbor day In the state of Iowa by ap
pointment of the governor, but It was
about as uupropitlous as a day could well
be. The face of the earth was found cov
ered with snow from one to three Inches
deep, and much Ice. The trees, which were
in full bloom for fruit, were covered with
Icicles and undoubtedly the prospects for
fruit were fouud to be very bad. The
thermometer core marked 29 degrees, and
the wind was from the northwest, Indicat
ing a certainty of dangerous condition to
morrow morning, threatening a killing
frost. The storm was reported as covering
oil the south psrt of the state to the Mis
souri line. Director Sage of Ihe Iowa crop
bureau and Secretary Greene of the State
Horticultural society agreed that the Indi
cations were of some Injury to the fruit
already, but a prorpect of s ill greater In
Jury tomorrow morning. As to other crops
there has not been any great Injury as
yet and farmers do not anticipate serious
trouble. There was very lktle today tn

trial of the case of the state against Mrs.
Ella McDanlel and A. M. Livix, which be
gan on Tuesdsy, wss resumed before Judge
Green In the district court this morning.
Many witnesses were called on the part
of the atate to describe the condition of
the house and its surroundings on the day
Mr. McDanlel died. They testified as to the

the room, of the blood spattered walls and
curtains, and of the blood stained shirt and
dress which belonged to the defendants.
Doctors who were called to the assist
ance of the deceased and who assisted at
the post mortem, testified that the cuts
upon the throat severed both the external
and Internal Jugular veins, and the carotid
artery. Medical experts testified that with
the injuries which the deceased bad re
ceived from wounds in bis neck, it would
have been impossible for him to have ar-
tlculated a sound, while other witnesses
who were pssslng at the time deceased
csme running from the house, stated that
he was crying. "They did It."
The atate offered In evidence the testi
mony of several witnesses to prove the Im
moral conduct of the defendants for the
