The city will do Its own street clean

contract. This was decided upon by the
city council last night after the only bid
received had been, rejected. John O. Sulli

contract for 85 rents rer l.OX) square ysrls.
His bid rpeclfled that he would clean
streets subject to deposit of earth during
storm periods at actual cost, plus 10 ier
cent. A rough estimate made by the
council of the cost of cleaning the streets
according to Sullivan's bid would exhaust
the streets and alleys funds long before
the expiration of the fiscal year. Alder
man McDonald, chairman of the streets
snd alleys committee, was anxious to re
advertise for bids but Alderman Fleming
was of the opinion that sufficient money
had been expended in advertising and he
moved that the matter be dropped and the
city do its own cleaning. His motion pre
vailed, McDonald alone voting against it.

Nearly all the farmers around Afton and
Creston are now engaged In tacking up
signs at the entrance of their farms noti
fying all hunters and others not to tres
pass on their premises and threatening
them with prosecution in case they disre
gard the notices. This action has become
necessary from the frequent loss of stock
by careless people with guns and the fre
quent trespass of parties with dogs who
have made the stock so wild that it is Im
possible to properly care for it. The
farmers say that they do not care so much
for the real hunters, but that the damage
haa been done by boys and those who do
not realise that anybody but themselves
have any rights to be considered. Iii many
cases the parties have left gatea open and
allowed stock to get Into newly plowed
fields, causing much damage, and they
have decided that the only way to avoid
the trouble Is to keep all trespassers off

son college st Indlanola, the Methodist hos
pltsl In Des Moines and other beneficiaries
named in the last will of Rev. Edward P.
Vail, the preacher philanthropist who be
queathed a large fortune to charitable and
educational Institutions, must fight for the
fortune donated by the rich and eccentrio
old minister. Two hitherto unknown heirs,
Ella and Frank Vail, adopted children ot
Edward Vail, now residing in Vermont,
have appeared on the scene and In a peti
tion filed in the district court this after,
noon have demanded that share of their
father' fortune, which they claim by vir
tue of the Iowa statutes.
The action Is brcught by Frank E. and
Ella J. Vail against W. H. Arnold, exe
cutor of the last will and testament of Ed
ward P. Vail, and Simpson college and
board of trustees. It Is somewhat aensa
tlonal, charging that Vail when he signed
the Instrument was not In his right mind
and also that undue influence was brought
by the agent of Simpson college to secure
the signature. By virtue of the state laws,
which gives to the adopted children the
same equitable rights in an estate, and
fop the other reasons mentioned. It Is asked
that the will be set aside and that Judg
ment for the full amount of donations be
warded the plaintiffs.
During the residence of the rich and ec
centric old philanthropist In Des Moines It
was understood that he had no direct helre,
either by birth or adoption, though It v as
known In Dallas county, his home before
removing to Des Moines, that Frank and
Ella Vail resided with the family In Ver
mont. Proof of their claims, however,
never reached this locality until It was
procured for use In connection with the
litigation commenced this afternoon. The
amounts donated by Vail w ill aggregate
something like $75,000. He i;ave to the
Methodist hospital at one time $20,000 In
cash and at another time lands amounting
to about that sum. His other donations
will aggregate from $5,00) to $40,00:i.
