DECIDES 10 DIG THE DITCH
Board Takes Tinal Action on the Long
Talktd of Proposition.
HARRISON COUNTY TO PAY ITS SHARE
Thomas Tostevln Appointed Engineer
In Charge of tha Work to Look
' After tha Interests of tha
Harrison county's two ditches, known as
the Willow Creek and the Allen Creek
ditches, will be constructed to connect with
the ditch In Pottawattamie county, which
will be known as the Boyer cut-off ditch.
The Willow creek ditch will start about
Ave miles north of Missouri Valley and
after merging with the Allen creek ditch
In Pottawattamie county will tap the
Boyer river at a point about one mile
south of Loveland. From this point the
ditch to be known as the Boyer cut-off will
be constructed In an almost straight line
to the Missouri river. This ditch will be
about one and one-half miles long.
The construction of the ditches, it Is
estimated, will necessitate KS4.S31 cublo
yards of excavation aa follows: Willow
creek ditch, 418.848; Allen creek ditch, 322.
836; Boyer cut-off, 83,147. It Is estimated
that the total cost of tha Improvement will
be $37,50), although these figures may be
Increased, as a number of owners of land
through which the ditches will pass are
demanding greater damages than allowed
by the appraisers. It Is 'figured that the
work of excavating can be done for 8 cents
per ruble yard, or a total cost of fi8,790.
The right of way, including damages, It is
figured will absorb about $17,000, while
other expenses, such as pay of the en
gineer In charge, will amount to about
$4,000. It is expected that the work of con
struction can be completed this year.
Harrison CItcs Bond.)
The Board of County Supervisors took
final action yesterday in the matter of the
Pottawattamie-Harrison county drainage
ditch proposition and the Improvement will
be carried out. The board adopted the re
port of the commissioners appointed by
the two countlea also the report of the
appraisers of damages to property affected
by the proposed ditches. The auditors of
the two counties will now advertise for
bids for the construction of the ditch which
will be divided into sections for this pur
pose. Thomas Tostevin was appointed engineer
in charge of the construction of the ditch
by the board, which will also determine
the compensation he shall receive. The
bond in the sum of $20,000 signed by thirty
four property owners of Harrison county
as a guarantee that Harrison county would
pay the additional cost of the construction
of the ditch in Pottawattamie county, was
filed with the board. The ditch in Potta
wattamie county will have to be of in
creased capacity in order to care for tha
water from Harrison county, thus increas
ing the cost of its construction. In, this
county and this extra expense is
borne by the Harrison county people.,
The ditch Is one of the most Important I
undertakings ever contemplated In the two
counties and t is expected that 158 square
miles of land will be directly benefited by
The board also approved the establish
ment of the Pigeon creek ditch in Crescent
township and Thomas Tostevin was also
appointed engineer In charge of this work.
The Pigeon creek ditch is but a small un
dertaking In comparison with the proposed
Pottawattamle-Harrlson county joint ditch.
F. L. Reed, clerk of the district court,
filed a report showing that he had col
lected $1,477.86 In fees from December 21.
i903. to June 1, 1903, and which he had
turned into the county treasury.
Alderman Israel' Lovett petitioned the
board to have the county bulldmg at
Twenty-fourth street and Avenue B re
paired at a cost not to exceed $0.
Today the board will take up tha matter
of the plans for the buildings on the new
county poor farm.

Molne. members of the Knights of Pythias
are much Interested In the coming session
of the grand lodge in Council Bluffs, Aug
ust 10 next. The delegation from here will
favor the selection of Senator F. M. Mola
berry. of Columbus Junction, for grand
chancellor. Some month, ago It wa. an
nounced there would be at least two other
candidate, for the grand chancellorship,
but at present the Indications are that Sen
ator Molsberry will be accorded the honor
without a contest. There will be a lively
contest for supreme representative.. There
are two of these representatives and three
active candidates. Senator C. C. Dowell
of Des Moines Is a candidate for a 'second
term, and will be accorded this by custom.
Carl If euhnle of Denlson Is a candidate for
a third term, and Is opposed by Bernard
Murphey of Vinton, atate printer. The
race between Murphey and Keuhnle for the
second place 1. likely to be a warm one
as both candidates are already active. An
other matter sure to come before the grand
lodge is that relating to the proposed
Knights of Pythias sanitarium and hos
pital at Colfax. The members from this
part of the state are In favor of this and
It hns been acted on by two grand lodges.
The matter of the grand lodge giving as

Idaho to investigate the qualifications of
President McLean of the Idaho university,
who haa been highly recommended for the

on the presidency will make a report but
it is understood the committee is not unan
imous on any candidate, and the matter
will have to be settled In the general board
meeting. The friends of both Stanton and
Curtis are confident. The members of the
alumni and the students have taken an
active Interest In the matter, but are di

that they did not practice extortion on
their guests. However, only a few of the

Trouble In Connty Convention.
The republican ' county convention tn
Hardin county developed a big row and
threats of an Independent republican
county ticket. The trouble grew out or an
old factional feeling. Mark Furry, mem
ber of the house, was renominated for a
third term, and in addition he was the
chairman of the county convention. His
long-time political opponent, J. H. Funk
of Iowa Falls, formerly member of the
house and speaker one term, bitterly op
posed the nomination of Furry. He claimed
there had been .fraud In two townships In
order to beat his candidate for sheriff and
Furry, as chairman, refused to permit the
matter to come before the convention In an
Irregular way. As a result ex-Speaker
Funk and about a dozen other delegates
representing one township bolted the con
vention and refused to participate further.
It is announced (hey will fight the ticket.
