LIBRARY SITE UNDECIDED
Trusteei Ears a Meeting and Wind Up
Juit Where They Started.
OPINION OF JUDGE HELD CONSIDERED
Attorney for E. L. Sana-art Tenders
the Trustees Deed In Conform
ity with the Reed
, "T , ,il
of the pub! o library had before them the '
ing the title to the Shugart property, re
cently selected as the site for the new
Carnegie library. They discussed it for an
hour and a half from all points of view,
considered a number of suggestions tending
to a further delay of the matter and some
for the immediate solution of the problem,
nearly every member having some course
to suggest, but no common ground was
struck until the possibility of ambiguity
in Judge Reed's opinion was suggested.
This suggestion was acted on and the
opinion referred back to Judge Reed
through the attorneys for the 6hugarts,
with the request that he state whether It
was his Intention to cover by It a clause
of the will of Mrs. Shugart conveying an
Interest in the property to the heirs of
one of her sons In the. event of the death
of the other without Issue. 'In the lan
guage of the will the term "his death" Is
so used that there might be some question
as to whether It referred to the death of
E. !. Shugart or to the death of one of
his sons. Whether Judge Reed gave this
consideration is tho point now to be sub
mitted to him.
At the conclusion of the reading of the
opinion of Judge Reed, which was a docu
ment of six typewritten pages, A. T.
Flicklnger, attorney for the Shugarts, ad
dressed the board, explaining that Judge
Reed's opinion simply meant that E. I.
Shugart and his sons, Lyman and Elmer,
could give perfect title by warranty deed,
and that If this was not satisfactory there
could be no possible obstacle to securing
title through condemnation by serving no
tice on the life tenant, E. L. Shugart, and
the two devisees, Lyman and Elmer Shu
gart. Concluding, Mr. Flicklnger tendered
the board a deed to the property.
Judge Heed's Opinion,
In his opinion Judge Reed, referring to
the doubt raised by City Attorney Snyder
as to tho possibility of securing good title
to the property, says:
The doubt of the city attorney arises out
of this language In the will or Mrs. Shu
gart: "In the event that either (the sons
Lyman and Elmer) shall die without issue,
then the share of such deceased son shall,
at his death, be and belong to the heirs
of the body of said surviving son." If the
contingencies here provided against had
happened before the death of the testator
that Is, If one of the sons had died, without
Issue, after the execution of the will, but
before the death of the testator I grant
that the estate, under this provision, might
have gone to the children of the survivor,
If there were any.
t But I deny that, under existing condi
tions, the contingencies not having thue
happened. It Is of any force whatever.
The bequest to the legatees (the two
sons) Is absolute, and without conditions
precedent. It Is a direct and Immediate
gift to Lyman and Elmer of tho whnia
estate, subject only to the estate of the
life tenant. They were given and are now
In th enjoyment of a vested remainder,
which, with the life estate of E. L. Shu
gart, constitutes the whole estate in the
Regarding the contention that perfect
title could not be had by , condemning,
because of the possibility of Interest of
heirs yet unborn, Judge Reed said:
I grant tnat all parties having any pres
ent interest In the property must be made
parties to the proceeding, or they will not
be bound by ft. But It Is only persons
certainly In existence, having definite rights
In the property now, or rights which are
certain to accrue in the future, who are
necessary parties to the proceedings.
The board Is to meet again next Monday
evening. r . .
DITCH MATTER NEXT MONDAY
Parties Interested In New Chnnnel
for Boyer t Appear on
The matter of the construction of the
big Harrison-Pottawattamie county ditch
for the straightening of the Boyer river
came up before the County Board of Su
pervisors when It convened in regular June
session yesterday. There was considerable
discussion of the matter, but no further
action was taken, next Monday being set
as the time for hearing all Interested
parties on both sides of the question. By
the proposed improvement It la stated by
Colonel Baker, who Is advocating the en
terprise, that where It now takes water
forty-eight hours to travel from Missouri
Valley to the Missouri river by the devious
course of the Boyer, the new ditch would
make the distance so much shorter and the
fall per mile so much greater that the
water would find its way Into the Missouri
from the Valley In Just four hours. By
thus increasing the capacity of the water
way to carry off the water great benefit
would accrue to the owners of land In
The proposed ditch for the Improvement
of pigeon creek contemplates substituting
a ditch four miles In length for fifteen mile i
of winding creek bed. If constructed the
ditch will have a fall of two feet eight
Inches to the mile and will carry the
water off many times faster than la now
As the result of the floods now prevalent
the board received an unusually large
number of petitions for new bridges. Lewis
township alone asked for five. The greater
portion of this township Is on the river
bottoms south of the city and has been
badly flooded, and at the present tlms
large sections of It are under water.
The board let the contract for construct
ing the new cement sidewalk In front of
the court house o E. A. Wlckham at llVi
cents a square toot.
Guilty of Va lawful Assembly.
A Jury of six of his peers In Justice Car

guilty of "unlawfully assembling," and the
court assessed a fine of 35 and costs,

DONATE THREE FEET OF STREET
Council Follows Precedent nud Va
cates That Much for Tele,
At a meeting of the city council last
evening action was taken vacating a strip
three feet wldo along the west side of
Scott street from the rear of the
new building owned by the Storx
Brewing company at the corner of
Broadway to Indian creek. This
was done at the request of the Nebraska
Telephone company, which la soon to erect
an exchange building on the abutting prop
erty. Several months ago when the Btors
people proposed building on the corner they
arraled to the city for three feet of
t flght u ,
left a three-foot offset and the Telephone
company objected to having its building In
effect set that far back from the lot lino.
In the face of the precedent set In the
case of the Brewing company the council
felt that the telephone people could not
well be refused.
Oeorge Brill, a motor conductor, appearel
before the council as spokesman for a num
ber of residents of the southwest part of
the city. He complained that a ditch that
formerly drained the neighborhood uf
Fourth avenue an Twenty-fourth street
has been filled up and that the whole vi
cinity Is now flooded. A similar condition
was reported In the neighborhood of the
Driving park. The city engineer was In
structed to prepare a report on the probable
cost of the needed work.
While before the council Brill brought
up the matter of the extension of the
water mains to the western part of the c,l.y
and gave notice that if this was not done
property owners thero would refuse to pay
city taxes. The city has heretofore always
refused to do this because of a lack of
funds and now the property owners give
notice that they propose to force the mat
ter. About 600 lots, mostly Improved, in
Wright's addition, and much other prop
erty is involved.
A resolution ordering several miles of
brick walks, mostly In the western pari
of the city, was passed.
The plat of Lincoln Place was accepted
Hugh Brown, who recently purchased
property on tha east side of Sixth street
north of the Baptist church, finds that it
Is within the fire limits and he cannot build

City Clerk N. C. Phillips was granted a
vacation of thirty days.
The appointment of George A. Williams
as deputy poundmaster was approved.
The plat of W. CJ. Dickey's addition was
rejected on recommendation of the commit
tee of the whole.
Aldermwi Casper called attention to I he
dangerous condition of Upper Broadway,
where the street Is sliding into the creek.
The construction of dams to raise the
bed of the creek was suggested and the
matter was referred to the city engineer.
Hospital Funds urn Healthy.
The Woman's Christian association held
Its second quarterly meeting of 1903 at
the home of Mrs. John Bereshelm yester
day afternoon. . The reports presented
showed that during the first five months
of this year the hospital has had 161 pa
tients, as against 158 for the same period
last year. The receipts for the period have
been 34.734.42 as against 33,690.73 last year.
The treasurer reported 311,000 In cash on
hand for the new building and 35,000' In
pledges. The association expects to raise
35,000 more for this fund this year and
will then let the contract for the build
ing. On April 1 the general fund showed
a balance of 3911.74. There axe now four

(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, June 1. (Special.) Gov
ernor A. B. Cummins had made all ar
rangements to go to Denlson today and
to be there tomorrow morning to give offi
cial welcome to tho state of Iowa to Pres
ident Roosevelt and his party. He had
been especially Invited by the local com
mittees, headed by Congressman Conner,
to be In Denlson and head the receiving
party. He had also accepted the Invita
tion of Senator Dolltver to be In Fort
Dodge and to go on to Waterloo and be
one of the speakers at the banquet to the
president In Dubuque (riven by Senator
Allison, but owing to tho serious flood sit
uation In Des Moinea and to the neces
sity for prompt action looking to securing
money to effect repairs at the state In
stitutions at Qlenwood, the governor de
clared that he regarded it ae his duty to
remain In hie office. The governor Is vir
tually at the head of the relief commit
tees at work caring for the needy people
of Des Moines. The governor personally
went all over the district and la giving his
personal attention to the work of relief.
The state executive council met today
to consider what could be done with regard
to the Institution for the Feeble Minded
at Qlenwood. Chairman Cownle of the
State Board of Control made a statement
to the council, supplemented by a state
ment from Architect Llcbbe, showing that
the needed repairs and Improvements will
cost about 320.000 and that It will be very
difficult Indeed to get along with any less
than this sum. The state council has left
of the providential fund 34.0u0. The coun
cil gave the board 331,000 for use In making
the temporary work at the School for the
Deaf In Council BluffB, and 33,000 for the
building of a temporary structure at Ames.
The council was willing to give the remain
ing 34,000 to the board, but this would not
be enough. "But we will get the money
somehow, for we must do so," declared the
governor. "This Is a case of absolute
necessity. The state can and will care for
the unfortunates In the institution at Qlen
wood, and we will get the money to do It
with." It Is probable that the council will
make an appropriation from the state
treasury sufficient to cover the actual
necessities of the situation at Qlenwood
and trust to the legislature to recoup. The
other members of the board will return to
morrow, when tho matter will be finally
Will Manufacture Ice.
Because of tho loss of more than two
thirds of the Ice In the Ice houses 'of Des
Moines a fecond Icemaklng plant will be
immediately Installed. The Ice business In
Des Moines has 'been concentrated In the
hands of a few persons. One of the com
panies has a good ice factory running.
Another will Immediately- construct a fac
tory, that ita regular customers may be
supplied. The los on Ice In Des Molnoa
has been about 390,000. and the supply left
will last only about thirty days. It la
Impossible to have Ice brought to the city
and the only way Is for a new factory to
be built. The flood had one good result,
and that was to put an end to an old
controversy between the park commission
ers and the Ice companies with regard to
the removal of certain Ice houses on ground
desired as an addition to Union park. The
courts have hesitated for a year or two
about removing the houses, but the Des
Moines river did not hesitate and the place
is 'swept clear.
Mercer of Railroads Approved.
Attorney General Mullan today rendered
an official opinion to Secretary of State
Martin In which he held that the consol
idation of the Minneapolis & St. Louis rail
road, effocted In IS, with Its subsidiary
line In Iowa could be effected without pay
ment of an additional fee. The company
undertook to organise a new company and
filed articles nearly two years ago, but when
the filing fee was demanded the articles
were withdrawn. About four months ag
the company filed a contract of consolida
tion, by which contract the Minneapolis &
St. Louis Railroad company of Minnesota
and the Minneapolis 4 St. Louis Rail
road and Telegraph company of Iowa oe
como the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway
company of both states. The first named
company had a capital of 320,000,000 and the
Iowa company 3100,000. Thus by effecting
a consolidation Instead of forming a new
company a filing fee of SM.OOO is avoided
and the company will become an Iowa
corporation with 120,000,000 capital. The
matter has been held up by the secretary
of state until the attorney general Investi
gated. He reported that under the code the
contract could be filed without payment
of the fee required of icorporations. The
question has never been raised and it opens
a new way for evading the big tees re
quired unBer the Iowa laws.
Swindled His Grandmother.

Leighton Is a young man without paren
and his adopted parents are In Colorado.
He was living with hie grandmother, wha
is wealthy. The accusation Is that he
made a statement to her to the effect that
he wanted 3900 for a certain purpose. 3ha

paper about the young man getting a
larger sum, and on Investigation she found
he had secured 32,600. with which he had

Exposition Commission to Meet.
A meeting of the Iowa commission on
the St. Louts exposition Is scheduled to be

Larrabee telegraphed Secretary Con
away from Clement this morning that the
Rock 11 md railroad Is badly washed out

The othir members of the commission have
not been heard from, but it Is surmised
they will all find It difficult to get here for
thi two meetings. The executive commit
teo is to hear the report of the building
committee on tho progress of the worn at
the Iowa building at St. Louis, and the
commission as a whole has Important busi
ness befot It at this time.

DON'T GET IN A SWEAT
Perspiration "sweat" is what the Bible and we common peo
ple call it is a way nature has of driving out of the body refuse
that has no business there. We sweat more in summer, because,
in the overheated bowels, undigested food ferments more quickly
than in winterand produces irritating acids and gases. The bowels,
overworked, try to relieve themselves by violent convulsions,
causing terrible gripes and colics, and diarrhoeal discharges so acid
as to make you sore, and leaving the intestines weak and worn out.
Nature assists body-cleaning by sending the filth out through the
pores of the skin. It is not safe to stop perspiring altogether but
most of the impure matter should be sent out by natural move
ments of the bowels, and the offensive, ill-smelling, linen-staining
sweat done away with. Keep your bowels strong all summer with
the pleasant, candy cathartic CASCARETS, that clean the system
and don't allow the excrement to be sweated out through the
pores. Take a tablet every night, before going to bed. They
work while you sleep and make you feel fine ana cool all day.

the operatives are In a position to close
