' ' Object to Stone PavinsT.
Property owners and residents on Graham
avenue, which 1 now being paved with
vitrified brick, object to the motor company
being permitted by the city council to pave
. the portion of the street between its rails
and two feet on each side with granite
block. They contend that the motor com
pany should use the same material as the
rest of the street la paved with.
. Graham avenue Is a residence street and
the strip of granite block in the center
of the brick paving will not only mar Its
appearance but force all trafllo on each
side of the street. Those who object to
the motor company using granite blocks
on this street .point to Pearl street, where
between the tracks stone is laid, while
the rest of the street is paved with brick.
The result has been that ruts have been
worn In the brick adjoining tha granite
blocks and it will be but a few years be
fore part of the paving will have to be
As a compromise it has been suggested
that in the event of the motor company
declining to remove the granite blocks be
tween its tracks and replace them with
bfick the company be requested to at least
allow brick to be laid up flush with its
rails on the outside. Aldermen Casper and
McDonald have been appointed a commit
tee to confer with the motor company and
see what can be done. It Is said that
the motor company was granted permis
sion by the city, council to use granite
blocks on Graham avenue, but even If
this la the case some of the abutting
property owners are talking of taking the
matter Into court and see if the company
cannot be compelled to pave with brick a
the rest of the street Is.
Contractor Wlckham has announced that
as soon as he completes the paving on
Graham avenue he will commence work on
Harrison street. The city council has de
cided that the concrete filler shall be used
on Harrison street to prevent the paving
being washed by the heavy fall of water
fnom the surrounding hill streets. The
concrete filler was used on North Main
street, which, although laid with home
made brick la considered one of the best
paved streets In the city.

Lsr;e Attendance at Annual Meeting of
TALK OF WAR ON DEPARTMENT STORES
President Baker Also Wants taw
Changed Regarding- the Grant
Ins; of Certificates te
When President Howard 8. Baker of
Bloux City called the opening session of
the twenty-fourth annual meeting of the
Iowa Btate Pharmaceutical association to
order last evening In the ball room of the
Grand hotel, 200 members of the associa
tion, many of them accompanied by their
wives and other members of their families,
In his annual address President Baker
urged the members of the association "to
go after the department stores with barbed
hooka" and recommended that an effort
be made to secure the repeal of that sec
tion of the state pharmacy law which per
mits the granting of certificates to grad
uates of pharmacy holding diplomas from
the State university, or from other schools
or colleges of pharmacy, without examina
tion by the state commission.
Regarding the encroachment of the de
partment store on the business of the phar
macist President Baker said:
I believe that the condition of the Iowa
pharmacist la better today than In the
past, yet I do not believe that he has made
the commercial Invasion he should on the
department and general stores of the state,
which are. constantly eating In on side
lines that originally and rightfully belong
to us. Yet I donbt not, were all the work
and broadening commercial Ideas that have
been pushed Into sctlve service the last
year enumerated here, we could but admit
of material advancement.
I want the Iowa pharmacist to observe
at all times commercial dignity and honor,
but I cannot stand meekly aside without
admonishing him to go after the depart
ment stores with barbed hooks.
Let us add to our business lucrative
lines that will meet the loss sustained In
Show me the pharmacist who seeks out
the paying lines to add to his business,
especially the lines that are already In the
department stores and catalogued with
them as their loss reclaimers, and I will
show you a successful business career, the
strength of which is not only measured
by Its weslth or Its Importance in the
world's progress, by its relative commer
cial position, but the man who strikes the
department store in a vital spot, and who
Is destined to be one nf the factors In
solving the cut-rste problem.
Wants Graduates Examined.
In urging the repeal of the aectlon of the
state pharmacy law relative td the grant
ing of certificates without examination to
graduates of any school or college of phar
macy, Mr. Baker said:
I most earnestly urge the legislative
committee for the ensuing year to use all
honorable effort to amend section 2689 of
our pharmacy laws by striking from the
section the words, "Graduates of pharmacy
holding a diploma from the State univer
sity, or from any school - or college of
ftharmacy, requiring a course of study and
aboratory work equivalent to that pre
scribed by the said State university In Its
catalogue for the year 187-98. may be
The evils from the above enactment are
In evidence at every hand. Under this
section the Board of Pharmacy Is com
pelled to Issue certificates to any and all
applicants that chow a diploma from the
State university of Iowa, or any college
throughout the country, alleging Ita stand
ard as a pharmacy achool in equality with
that of our State university. In other
words. It practically converts the State
Board of Pharmacy Into , Judges of the
standard of schools all over the continent,
and not judges of the applicants' ability to
practice pharmacy for the safety of the
public The Board of Pharmacy has no
means of ascertaining the standard of
many schools in remote districts, without
personal Inspection of equipment and the
practical work, and this would entail tre
mendous exponse to the state.
The result has been the enforced passing
of many applicants who have not had a
day's experience In tne am Dusiness, ana
I was told by a prominent druggist that a
clerk under his employ, who received his
certificate In this manner, could cot tell
the difference between a bottle of War
ner's kidney and liver cure and a bottle
of Plnkham's pills, for he had never seen
them. ' ,
I would further recommend the repeal
of that portion of section 2699. namely:
"After registration an annual fee of $1
for a renewal certificate shall be paid on
or before the 22d day of March by all phar
macists who continue In business, and the
conduct of such business without such re
newal shall be a misdemeanor." And that
portion of section 2691. namely: "Which
shall hold good for one year, anil no longer,
without renewal. Renewals shall be
granted upon the payment of the annual
Tha nrimirv nhlect In the passage of
this lsw was for the maintenance of the
commission, which, at that time. In our
Judgment, was eminently proper to render
the board self-sustaining through the ss
slstance of the druggists, and not at the
exnense of the taxpayers of the state.
The time has now arrived for its elim
ination from the code. Inasmuch as the
office of the commission is not only self
sustaining, but an income to the state,
sbnve all expenditures for its operation, of
$16,000 per annum.
Informal Cession at Nlsrht.
The evening session was opened with
prayer by Rev. James Thomson, pastor of

mittee at the Orand hotel and took per
sonal charge of the women guests as they

MANUAL TRAINING IN SCHOOLS
Board Decides to Introdaea
saentary Cenrse with Raw
At a special meeting of the Board of
Education last night Superintendent Clif
ford waa authorised to establish a course of
elementary manual training work for the
first to the eighth grades at the opening of
the school year in September. For the
present this course will be purely elemen
tary and conalat only of such work aa can
be done by the pupil at the desk. Later It
la hoped the work will be extended and a
properly equipped ahop opened. This, how
ever, cannot be accomplished at this time
for lack of funds.
The course of manual work will be prac
tically the same as was started as an ex
periment toward the end of the last school
year. It will consist of weaving, basketry
and raffla work. Later Superintendent
Clifford hopes to Introduce Venetian Iron
work and wood carving, both of which can
be done by the pupil at the desk. The pupils
for the present will purchase their own ma
terial, although later if the work proves
successful the board may decide to furnish
all materials, the work accomplished by
the pupil then becoming the property of the
district. During the discussion last night
Superintendent Clifford displayed for the
benefit of the members of the board nu
merous samples of excellent work In weav
ing, basketry and raffia work done by the
pupils of the lower grades.
In order to encourage entertainments of
this character the board granted permis
sion for the use of the high school audi
torium for a course of lectures to be given
during the winter months under the aus
pices of the Elks' lodge. There wlU to) six
entertainments ef an educational character,
the Elks lodge bearing the entire financial
responsibility. It Is understood that part
of the profits. If any, of the course will be
turned over to the high school library fund.
J. E. Carman of Hawarden, la., waa
elected a member of the high school faculty
to fill the vaoancy caused by the resigna
tion of Prof. F. E. Millar. Mr. Carmen Is
a graduate of the State Normal and Simp
son colleges. His salary was placed at $100
a month. Miss Margaret Montgomery of
l4trabee, la., was elected a supply teacher
for the high school at a salary of $65 a
month. Miss Montgomery formerly taught

graduate of the State Normal school and
Miss Emma Thomas was added to the
ranka of the teachera at $35 a month and
Mlaa Theodora Hobba waa appointed assist
ant kindergarten teacher at the Harrison
street school at $20 a month.
In order to relieve the congestion at the
Washington Avenue school It waa decided
to open all of the twelve, rooms at the
Pierce Street school at tha opening of the
school year. This will relieve Miss Rey
nolds, the principal, .from teaching a half
day and will place her on the aame plane
a a the principals of the Bloomer and Twen

(From a Btaff Correspondent)
DEB MOINES, July 14. (Special.) The
hearing of the state executive council, con
stating of the governor, auditor, treaeurer
and secretary of atate, waa concluded to
day, so far aa It related to the queatlon of
real estate valuations. Representatives of
about forty of the ninety-nine counties of
the state appeared before the council to
protest against any increase In their as
sessments, contending that the assessments
aa mad are all right and represent sub
stantially the sale value of the property
at the present time. It was brought out In
the discussion, however, that some coun
ties are assessed higher than others pro
portionately, and that without any appar
ent reason, and the counties assessed high
est are not asking that they be reduced,
liut contend that their assessments are
fMr. It was also brought out that farm
lands are not being sold In Iowa at as
good prices aa they were a year or two
yeara ago, but there haa been a decided
slump In values all over the atate. accord
ing to the offlclala from the countlea who
have made the matter a study. Much of
the time of the council haa been taken up
In ascertaining what will be the proper
method of arriving at the proper valua
tion of the counties. The council la re
quired to And the actual value and to
make the assessment accordingly. Repre
sentatives of the railroads have Insisted
before the council that this would be un
fair to the farmers and to all property
owners In the state.
Tomorrow the matter of railroads will be
taken up by the council and the repre
sentatives of most of the companies doing
business in Iowa are here to be heard be
fore the council. They will contend against
any Increase In railroad assessments. It
has been claimed by them that the assess
ments lsst year were excessive and this
year should not be so high. In spite of
this It la generally believed the atate offi
cials will make an Increase In railroad
asessments this year, largely because of
the enormous Increase In real estate and
other values In the two years. It lo ex
pected also that the total valuation for
taxation purposes of all the property of
the state will be about $650,000,000 thla year
aa agalnat $570,000,000 laat year, and aa a
consequence the tax levy for th year will
be reduced for state purposes from t.5 mills
to 1.2, or possibly t.l mills on the dollar.
Tha council Is required to raise about
$2,000,090 In taxes for the yar.
Cost of State Instltatlons.
According to the report of the book
keeper for the State Board of Control, the
expense of the state Institutions for sup
port during the entire biennial period ended
June 30 last, waa $2.33.4W.S4, which waa
$173.$7.8$ more than fo: the previous bien
nial period. The amount spent for salaries
In the biennial period Increased $64,101.82.
which waa the most considerable Item of
the Increase. The items relating to cloth
ing, household stores, postage and sta
tionery, ordinary repairs and transporta
tion of patients, decreaeed during the
period. The Increase In total of expenses
was regarded as about equal to the gen
eral Increase of business done In the
Want Permit to Send Body.
Governor Cummins today received from
Governor Mickey of Nebraska a tele
graphic request for permission for the
transportation of a corpse across the stats
of Iowa. It was In reference to the trans
portation of the body of Miss Cook from
Detroit, Mich., to Nehawkt. Neb. The
Michigan authorities had reported that
while the person had died of smallpox, the
body had been placed lit a hermetically
sealed casket and prepared for shipment
In a manner that would render It entirely
safe, In the estimation of the Michigan
authorities. The matter waa referred to
the aecretary of the Btate Board of Health
here, who reported that the Iowa rules
forbid the transportation of a amallpox
victim, no matter how the body haa been
prepared, that the rulea In Michigan are
more lax than In other states. It Is doubt
ful If the permission can be given here.
