Water - Supply Derived ., from Wells
le Held tp Be,
At tho meeting of the directors of the
Commercial club laat evening Dr. Donald
Maorae, Jr., made the prediction that t
Council Bluffa . would eventually do aa
great a aufferer In loss of life from the
recent high water as Topeka, Kan., where
there were so many fatalities from drown
ing. The doctor made this forecast from
his observations In tho bottoms, where he
says the surface water has run into the
wella and Is euro to bring on typhoid fever.
Dr. Treynor expressed himself aa of the
same opinion and both urged that the
matter la worthy of aerloua attention.
Many of the people In the weatern and
aouthern parta of the city uae well water,
and these are the sections of the city that
have been troubled by the floods. The
doctors auggaated that aa a preventive
the water be boiled before using. To fur
ther this plan the directors of the club
expressed the wish that the matter be
agitated through the newspapers and that
tho city physician prepare a circular for
distribution among the people, giving
warning and detailing dlrectlone for treat
ing the water.
The condition ot the atreete In general
was discussed and particular attontion was
called to the almost Impassable condition
of West Broadway by a letter from W. T.
Seaman, who Uvea In that vicinity. Some
years ago a good many thousand dollars
waa spent In laying a atrip of alag ma
cadam sixteen feet wide on this striet
fromf Fourteenth to the river, but the con
dition of the thoroughfare Is now worse,
if anything, aa the result ot what was
then thought an Improvement.
F. J. Day of the committee to whom
waa referred the matter of a cold storage
plant reported that the committee had
held a meeting and that the prospect for
the establishment of such a plant In the
city was good. The committee Is at pres
ent looking for a man with experience In
this line. Mr. Day said a Rockwell City
mun had written that If a plant waa put
In here he would divert his business of
twelve cars annually for storage from
Omaha to Council Bluffa.
There waa some discussion of the propo
sition to get the headquarters of the weat
ern division of the rural free delivery
service of the Fostofflce department lo
cated here, but no action was taken.
The question ot the probable abolition
of the bridge differential that now favors
Council Bluffs aa against Omaha in freight
rates received some attention.
The monthly report of Commissioner
Loomls showed the total receipts to dstc
to be 13.754 and the membership 338. About
twenty of the fifty members ot the board
of director were present last evening.

suits were settled by Ou'inlnghajn and the
lawyers yesterday.

Hopri t3 Hare it Completed Before Labor
Becomes Scarce at Fair,
Na Extra Session of Legislature to
Bo Called, as Desired Result
Coald Not Be Thus
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, June l-(Speclal.)-Work
on the Iowa building on the grounds of the
Louisiana Purchase exposition Is being
rushed as rapidly aa posslblo because ot
fear of labor troublea and complications
that will make the completion of the build
ing more dlfflclt or expensive. This was re
ported to the state commission In session
this morning by W. T. Shepherd of Har
lan, superintendent of construction. "Help
is plentiful now," he reported, "but I look
for complications later. My hope Is that
we may be able to progresa so rapidly that
we may get through each stage of the con
struction Just ahead of the Jam that will
make the probable 'holdup' in each Impos
sible." As yet there has been no holdup ot
the commission or contractora because the
work Is being done before the fact becomes
generally known at St. Louis. In fact, Iowa
had the building well under way before
some of the officials, as for Instance the In
surance department, knew anything was
being done. Superintendent Shepherd re
ported that the building la up to the second
story. He haa employed J. O. Wlckeraham
of Harlan as actual superintendent of con
struction at 1100 a month. One car of
lumber waa rejected. He recommended the
purchase of the motor for the organ- and
the electrical fixtures at once.
The members of the commission present
today were Messrs. Larrabee, Wltmer, Har
rtman, Trewln, Shepherd. Curtis and Bailey.
The chief work was auditing bills In re
gard to the construction work at St. Louis.
It waa found that the contractor waa not
presenting receipted bills In all cases as re
quired. A report was presented from
Superintendent F. J. Sessions on the work
done In the educational department. He
has opened headquarters at Cedar Rapids,
la preparing the first general circular, la In
correspondence with college faculties and
the library commission and will take up the
matter with heads of state institutions.
There will be no living exhibit from the
state institution schools.
Fifty Inebriates Wallc Away.
More than fifty of those sentenced to the
state Inebriate hospitals walked out of the
hospitals at Cherokee and Mount Tleasanl
during the month of May. The report from
Mount Pleasant shows that June 1 there
were fifty-six Inebriates In the hospital, that
there were seventy-three a month before,
that thirty-seven eacaped and forty-one
j were discharged, and there Is out on parole
I now a total of sIxAy-slx. At the Cherokee
! Inebriate hospital there are thtrty-nlne In
mates, as against fifty-three May 1, that
fourteen escaped during the month and
forty-two are now out on parole. The num
ber of Insane at Mount Pleasant, June I.
was S7S, a decrease of eight; and at Chero
kee there were 614, an Increase of two. The
number of Inmatea at the Boys' Industrial
school at Eldora,.June 1, was 514, and at
the Olrla' Industrial school at Mitchell
vllle, 211. The penitentiary at Anamosa re
ports a total of 424! an Increase of six for
the month. Of the nineteen received, six
were for second terma.
No Extra Session.
There will be no extra session of the
state legislature on acoount of the great
losses from floods In the state of Iowa. The
city council of Des Moines paased a resolu
tion asking for a special session that some
law might be pasaed under which, the city
might make a special levy for dikes, and
thus give employment to a large number ot
men. The matter was looked up today and
It waa found that this process would be
very unsatisfactory, that any measure the
legislature might pass could not be got
Into force until after the next aeaslon ot
the 1 glslature, and no tax levied could be
collected and made use of this year. It
would, therefore, be Just aa well to wait
for the regular session of the legislature.
The city council committee has not yet
called on the governor to make formal re
quest for a special session and the gov
ernor will not take It up until the
tee presents Its plan.
Sandlland Haa Appealed.
The appeal papers In the case of the
State against Andy Sandlland were filed
with the clerk of the eupreme court today.
Sandlland waa convicted of breaking and
entering a car In the night time and taking
therefrom some beer. This happened at
Avoca. where he got a sentence of a year
in the penitentiary.
New Iowa Corporationa.
The reincorporation of the Sanborn State
bank was accomplished today. The bank
haa a capital of 125,000; C. D. Ellis, presi
dent; O. M. Blocum, cashier. The Oska
loosa Bindery company has organized,
capital 110.000, by T. M. Shockley and Phil
Hoffman. The East Carroll Land company
of Cedar Rapids has Incorporated with
150,000 capital, by J. H. Trewln. J. M.
Grimm, O. T. Hedges and J. M. Rlstlne.
The Waukon Consolidated Milk company
waa organized, with 160.000 capital, by W. C.
Earle, president, and W. H. Nethaua, treas
urer. State Farms Are Backward.
Judge Robinson of the State Board of
Control returned today from Cherokee,
where he had visited the State Insane hos
pital and the state farm. He reports that
the crops on the big state farm in Cherokee
county are good and that despite the act
weather the farm will yield well. It is lo
cated on high and rolling ground. But this
ia the only one of the farms at various
state institutions concerning which such
a favorable report could be made, aa In
every other Instance the farm work has
been greatly delayed by the bad weather.
These stats farms are scattered well over
the state and are representative of the
conditions aa they are found.
