County Chairman Wright arrived home
yesterday from, a trip to various polnta In
Wyoming; nnd expects to call a meeting
of the county central committee for some
day this week. It la proposed to have sev
eral meeting In different parts of the
county during the month. Chairman

speakers, but among the number will be
State Senator C. d. Baunders, County At

The democratic campaign Is billed to be
opened likewise at Avoca, the day preced
ing the republican rally. This will be
Thursday, when Congressman M. J.- Wade
of Iowa City will be the principal speaker.
- Chairman Miller of the democratic
county central committee went 'to Avoca
Saturday where a party pow-wow waa
held. Chairman Miller's mission was to
endeavor to raise some funds with which
to start the campaign going, but he did
not meet with any great success. Several
of the county candidates were present at
the conference, but, it is said, were averse
to loosening up very freely.
The faithful in Council Bluffs are anx
ious to have a big rally in the city before
the end of the campaign, for which some
prominent speaker la to be secured. Chair
man Miller, however, it is said, has stated
emphatically that no such meeting will
be arranged for, by him unless the money

Trouble) In Securing- Rand.
The Inability of the sidewalk contractors
to secure bank aand, as provided In the
specifications, In sufficient quantities Is re
sponsible for the delay In laying the brk-k
walks ordered In various parts of the city.
Some action Is looked for at the meeting
of the city council tonight to remedy mat
ters. It baa been suggested that the con
tractor be , permitted to use river sand.
To permit this the ' specifications under
which the contracts were let would have
to be changed. To change the specifica
tions. It. U claimed, would probably lead to
litigation-as make the eity liable for the
cost of the work In the event of the prop
erty owners refusing to pay on the grounds
that the sand provided for In the contract
had not been used. 11
. - City Solicitor Snyder has suggested that
the contracts recently let by the city be
rescinded, new specifications drawn up by
the city engineer permitting the use of river
.sand or any. other sand equally aa good
as bank sand and bids be again advertised
for. While this course would take two or
three weeks Mr. Snyder believes It Is the
only safe course to pursue to prevent the
city being held responsible for any dis
crepancy between the specifications and the
Fire at Grand Hotel.
A still alarm brought the entire fire de

afternoon to the Grand hotel. Defective
Insulation of electric wires started a blase
In the roof of, the rotunda. It was quickly
extinguished after the firemen had chopped
their way to the seat of the troubls. The
damage Is inconsiderable. . .
While the crowd which had been attracted
by the arrival of the fire department was
gathered around the hotel considerable ex
citement was caused by a tight between a
large St, .Bernard dog, said to belong to
F. Osborne, a traveling man, and a huge
liana hound, the property of Oscar Tounk

for a time were futile and people trampled
over one another In the rush to get away
from the -belligerent canines. Finally Pa
trolman Hayes, by the use of his rlub,
separated the dogs. The big Dane hound

FIRE ESCAPE LAW IS LAME
lone Doubt Whether Failure te Comply ii
Misdemeanor or Felony.
OPENING A NEW COAL FIELD IN IOWA
torrent Week Will "ee an Awakening;
In the rolltlral Field Meetings
Annoanred for Both
. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
DIC3 MOINES, Oct. 4 tSpecial.) The
question as to whether or not the violators
of tho new Iowa luw which requires fire
escupes on ail buildings three stories high
or over are indictable under the Iowa law
or only punishable by fine in a justice court
Is being considered by the county officials
here. Ocnlte the fact that the number of
fire escatTs put up In Des Molncs by reason
of the new law Is enormous there are many
buildings whose owners hsve neglected to
put up the fire escapes. The city officials
gave the required notices snd the county
attorney has been Informed of the failures.
But he has thus far hesltsted about having
indictments brought because of the doubt as
to whether the law makes failure to comply
a felony. The penalty is a 1100 fine or in
certain cases this fine and something sdded.
The question Is one which will probably be
raised by an Indictment to make a test of
the ina.tcr In the courts. In the meantime
the state commissioner of labor statistics
continues such Inspection as he has been
able to make and reports on the fire escapes
as w;Il as on factories generally. In his
report the commissioner said:
"Realising that the enactment of the lire
escape law somewhat modified the duties of
the commissioner as outlined In the code
and finding that in some sections of the
stite no efforts were being made to carry
out the provisions of the law by the local
officials entrusted with Its enforcement,
thereby leaving employes snd persons as
rembled In factories and buildings unpro
tected against fire, the commissioner spared
no effort to bring this Important statute to
the attention of the local officials. The ef
forts thus far made were as a rule, cor
dially received, but with others they were
either disregarded or the authority of the
commissioner disputed. In order to be clear
as to my duties in the matter an opinion
was asked from the attorney general, which
supported the opinion held that 'the com
missioner is Imposed with the duty of serv
ing notices upon agents or owners of build
ings wherever they had failed to provide
Pro escapes as required by law.' It will be
seen from the opinion that the commissioner
has no authority to command the erection
of fire escapes and consequently cannot
serve a legal notice. However, this diffi
culty was overcome In some sections by
the hearty co-operation of the fire depart
ment chlefa and mayors of cities, and
wherever such co-operation waa extended
all difficulties were overcome and ample
fire protection provided."
The commissioner, however. In his bien
nial report quotes one letter received by him
f from a fire chief In a city of Iowa In which
he Indignantly refuses to have anything to
do with the new law. The commissioner
sent the letter to the mayor of the city and
he did nothing and the city is today with
out any fire escapes. This in only one place,
hut in many others the law has worked
well. It in expected there will be some
modification of the law and strengthening
of it at the next session of the legislature.
The labor commissioner in hts report
makes a strong recommendation for the ap
pointment of several factory Inspectors to go
about the state and make thorough Inspec
tion of the factories to see that the laws are
complied with in every respect.
Xew Coal Field la Iowa.
There will be a new and large coal field
opened In Iowa next year. The White
breast Coal company of Chicago, the most
extensive miner of coal in the state, has
been quietly acquiring a large area of land
in Marlon county, near the town of Dallas,
which is far removed from any railroad at
this time. The company secured options
on the land and has had borings made In
a large number of places. The result of
these borings has not been disclosed, but
the company has recently directed that all
the options be closed and the land be pur
chased. It is a good farming country and
the cost will be enormous. . The options
ail expire before March 1 next, and prac
tically all will be taken up. This Is re
garded as a sure indication that the bor
lngs showed good workable veins of coal.
The field is one of the largest in the
state, and has been untouched because no
railroad company has ventured Into It.
During the present week there will be

An Interesting question has been raised
In the office of the secretary of state In
regard to the right of a vofer lo partici
pate In a convention and then as.lst In
the nomination of a candidate by petition.
Thin arose in connection with the nomina
tion of H. L. Olson of Northwood, as an
Independent candidate for representative
In the Winnebago-Worth district and the
nomination of William Welden os an In
dependent candidate in Hardin county;
Persons who participated in the regular
tepublican conventions this year ore ou the
petitions of the Independent candidates
named. The law In regard to nominations
Is specific in prohibiting one who has par
ticipated In a primary election of one
party taking part in another and makes
such participation prima facie evidence of
fraud. Now a nomination by petition is In
the same position ns a nomination by pri
mary election. It Is therefore urged by
some that one who has taken part in a pri
mary or convention bus no right to en
gags In making nominations afterwards to
oppose the candidates of the party to which
they belong, tn both these cases the inde
pendent candidacies are opposed to the
regular republican nominees.

CHEYENNE, Wyo., Oct. 4. (Special.)
T. A. Renner, the Big Horn basin sheep
man who was summoned to appear before
the United States court here and answer
to the charge of trespass on the Yellow
stone forest reserve, yesterday accepted
service of the court, and Is now In a posi
tion where In case he again trespasses on
the reserve he will be In contempt. Mr.
Renner was not fined, he having requested
permission to come to Cheyenne.
Mr. Renner will probably fight the In
junction of the United States court, for he
says he han been discriminated against In
favor of the cattle Interests. He says he
has several bandn of sheep graxlng on the
Yellowstone reserve above timber line, but
these sheep were not molested, nor has
there been any attempt upon the part of the
forest officials to molest any sheep on that
portion of the reserve that is above timber
line. The band of fcheep that was driven
off of the reserve by the forest supervisors
was one that was grazing bear lands occu
pied bv the cattlemen.
Mr. Renner says further that he was
given permission by Superintendent Pierce,
one of the men under Superintendent An
derson, to take one band of sheep onto ths
reserve. This permit, which was verbal,
waa also given td a large number of flock
masters and cattlemen. Now tlje guard
ians of the ' forest reserve repudiate this
permit, says Mr. Renner. He says he has
ample proof tha.tr be,,was, told tq go on the
reserve, and. that,, when the proper time
comes he will produce a large number of
witnesses to' prove ,that his position In
the matter is correct.
Mr. Renner will apply for permission
from the interior department next year to
go on the reserve, but he fears that unless
the present injunction is removed he will
be unable to secure the permit. There Is
no disposition upon the part of the United
States court to Jeopardize Mr. Renner's
Interests, snd he lias been informed that if
he secures a permit to enter the reserve,
the present Injunction will be rescinded.
If Mr. Renner fights the injunction t lie re
will be some Interesting developments, and
disclosures that promise to enlighten the
public with reference to the conduct of the
graxlng privileges on the Yellowstone re
serve. NEW RULE FOR SHEEPMEN
Secretary of Agrlcnltore Modifies Late
Order Relating to Flacks In
CJHEYENNE. Wyo., Oct. 4-(SpclaI.)-Govomor
Chatterton today received the
following letter from Secretary of Agricul
ture Wilson ' regarding the action of the
state board of sheep commissioners recently
In abolishing circular No. 2, which pro
vided that all sheep In the state, whether
scabby or not, should be dipped during the
period from September 16, to November 16:
The department has received a ' report
from its representatives who recently met
with the Wyoming state board of sheep
commissioners, and has acted favorably on
tnelr recommendation that an Inspection be
made of the sheep in certain counties,
particularly lu the eastern part of Wyo
ming, and if on Inspection any sheep are
found Infected or exposed to scab that they
be dipped immediately as required. Favor
able action has also Kxten taken on their
recommendations that if In Inspecting
sheep, the sheep are not found infected, the
shipments from such counties may be made
without restriction, and that the same
privileges may tie granted to other coun
tlss whenever It is ascertained that they
are free of scab and are kept so by pre
venting the entrance of shfep from infected
counties. This will, therefore, allow clean
sheep from counties found free nf the dis
ease to be shipped to market without dip
ping, and without placarding the cars. It
haa been further provided that sheep for
slaughter dipped under the joint supervis
ion of the slate and department inspectors
within ninety clays from the time of dip
ping be flowed to go In unplacarded cars
ns clean sheep ir snipped directly to (South
Omaha. Chicago. South St. Joe, Kunsaa
City or Denver, if they pass Inspection and
have not hten in contact with scabby sheep
since dipping. The department lias further
authorized the we of placards with the
words "exposed sheep'1 instead of "scabby
sheep'' for shipments which have been
merely exposed to the disease, when It Is
devlred to ship them to market without
The department's regulations, B. A. I.,
order 114, provided under section 4, for the
shipment of cattle that are not affected
n ull si ab and have not been exposed to the
contagion, direct to market without re
striction. There bus been some misunder
standing among some of the department
officials In the field with reference to these
rases and It will be corrected at once, so
thxt the shipments of health cattle may be
made without tagging the cars.
