DITCH CONTRACT IS SIGNED
Brown & Company Officially Buy They Are
Beady to Proceed with Work.
LITIGATION LIKELY TO INTERVENE
Some Owners of Property Inclined
to Insist on Contract for Part of
Work Relnar Let to
M. A. Brown & Co. of Washington, Ind.,
the firm which was awarded the contract
for the entire work of constructing the
Allen creek and Willow creek ditches of
the Harrison - Fottawattamle drainage
ditch system, signed the contract yester
day as prepared for the part of the work
In Pottawattamie county by County Audi
tor Innes The firm signed the contract for
the work In Harrison county Wednesday.
The Indemnifying bond required of the
company has not yet been furnished. The
bond furnished In Harrison county was
In the sum of R,000, but It has been figured
out that the amount of the bond needed In
Pottawattamie county la only $1,30.
Hrown & Co. do not expect to begin the
work of construction before next March,
but hope to get their two dredges and
floats ready during the Intervening months.
It is understood that Brown & Co. have
reached an agreement with K. A. Wlck
ham whereby the latter will not contest the
award of the contract of Brown A Co.
Wlckham was $6,000 lower on his bid for
the Allen creek ditch, but the auditors of
this and Harrison county decided to give
the entire contract to the Indiana firm on
Its aggregate bid.
The award of the entire contract In the
face of Wlckhnm's lower bid for a large
portion of the construction to the Indiana
firm Is, not pleasing, It Is said, to a large
number of the farmers Interested In the
proposed drainage scheme, and It Is said
that more litigation will follow. The farm
ers who are protesting cannot see, they
awsert, why they should be called upon to
pay $15,000 more for the. work than It had
been offered to be done for by a responsible
The fact that Wickhum has not up to
date made any protest against the con
tract being awarded to the Indiana firm
gives reason for the belief among many
of the farmers Interested that some deal
has been arranged between him and Brown
& Co. of Indiana. This being the case
more litigation Is looked for.

Library Roard Approves Contract.
The white winged dove of peace soared
above the meeting of the IJbrary board
last night and Its deliberations were carried
on In a manner befitting the dignity of Its
members, so that the scenes of the night
previous were lacking and the board finally
accomplished what It met to do approve
a contract with the architects selected for

The contract as submitted by Trustees
Stewart and Baird of the committee on
buildings at the meeting Thursday night
was taken up clause by clause, and after
a number of amendments and additions had
been tacked on was adopted In Its entirety.
The only question In connection with the
proposed contract which called for a vote
by roll call was that of the compensation
to be paid the two firms of architects
selected by the board. The contract as
submitted provided for t per cent. Trustee
Gahiu moved to amend this particular
clause so as to make the compensation to
the architects 3 per cent and that the
other 1H per cent Le expended In payment
of the services of a competent superintend
ent to supervise the work on behalf of the
board. Trustees Cleaver, Baird, Scott,
Everett and Stewart voted against the
amendment, and Trustees Rohrer, Tyler
Calvin and Bender for It, the amendment
thus being lost by a vote of to 4.

the speaking bureau of the campaign, and
many, other prominent Iowa republicans.
Chairman Spence warned the republicans
against apathy. He said tho return of the
sound money democrats to the fold meant
renewed activity on the part of the oppo
sition, because these men would want to
show that tho repudiation of the Kansas

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Sept. 25.-(8peclal.)-Hie
State Ballot board today rendered a de
cision In ono contest over who should be
recognised as the regulnr republican nomi
nee, only to face another equally knotty
problem. The board decided that B. F.
Robinson of Armstrong Is entitled to a
place on the representative ticket as the
regular republican nominee from the
Emmet-Dickinson district, and that his
contestant. Dr. Q. C. Fuller of Mllford,
has no standing on the ballot. No formal
statement was Issued with the decision.
The attorney general, auditor and secretary
of state were closeted all forenoon con
sidering the case and reached the conclu
sion that the convention was regular and
that the proceedings had were sufficient
so that the nomination may be regarded
as regular and sufficient. While both the
contestants had also filed nomination papers
by petition, it is believed this will end the
controversy, which grew out of the fact
that the two counties were equally strong
In the convention.
The board also directed that a hearing
be given the republicans from the Butler
Bremer senatorial district next Monday.
The board received a protest signed by
E. W. Soesbe, the defeated candidate, In
which lie declared that the convention did
not In fact nominate W. N. Iarktn, that
a n ajorlty of tha votes were actually cast
for Soesho and that the announcement of
the nomination of Irfirkin was through
fraud, that tho nomination was "fraudulent
In manner and form, without due parlia
mentary procedure, revolutionary, unrepub
llenn, unamerlcan and subversive of the
will of the majority and against popular
government." To this protest waa added
the affidavit of the thirteen Butler county
delegates, who swear that they voted for
Soesbe. As there were only eleven of tho
Bremer delegates tho situation is puzzling.
The board will Insist on Lai kin making a
showing before allowing his name to go on
the official ballot.

The mob was composed of about twenty-
five persons. Sheriff Davidson was alone
at the time. He refused to give uj the
keys and opened fire from a window. The
sheriff then called for the police. Two
officers and several citizens rushed to the
Jail, but despite their presence the mob
battered down the wooden door and the
foot of the stairs leading to the corridor.
The sheriff and posse made a determined
resistance, but were unable to prevent tho
mob from breaking in the iron door at the
head of the stairs and entering the cei
occupied by the negro, about whose neck
they placed a rope.
As -soon as the men emerged from the
eel! it became apparent that the negro
could not bo taken (from the Jail and
hanged for fear of being fired on, and he
was shot ta death. The mob then made
an effort to escape, but the sheriff and his
guard captured three of them. One cf
them, it la said, has made a confession im
plicating thirteen men.
Small was under arrest on the charge of
assaulting Mrs. Eliza Eggleston, and at
the. preliminary hearing the warrant was
amended so as to charge a simple case cf
assault. The negro had waived examina
tion and was awaiting the action of the
grand Jury. 1
