Tire of Delay on Library.
Jvnerul members of the library board
have expressed themselves as being op
posed to any further delay In the matter
of having the plans tor the Carnegie
building prepared by the architects selected
by the board for this purpose. At the
meeting of the board next Monday night
they will Insist that the. firm of Chicago
architects be notified to come to Council
Bluffs at once and begin work on the
plans. The members who are desirous that
this shall be done contend . that it will
take several months before the plans will
be completed and approved and that if
there Is any furthr-r delay work on the
building cannot be begun In the spring.
President Rohrer, since his return from
Missouri, has consulted with the members
of the board and has found that a majority
of them are In favor of having the plana
drown without further delay: The mem
bers say the board ought by this time
to be able to tell the architects what
kind of a building it wants and there
seems little doubt but . the call for the
architects will be made Monday night.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DK3 MOINES. Doc. 9.-(8peclal.)--The
long-deferred announcement of the new
rules of the Iowa supreme court to conform
to the new laws of the state was made to
day. The rules were ' received from Iowa
City, where Judge MacClaln had thein
printed. The change In the rules wos made
necessary by the fact that the last legisla
ture passed a law requiring the court to
sit practically all the time and to have
a session every month In tho year, the
plan being to have the decisions rendered
as soon after submissions as possible. The
most Important port of the new rules re
lates to the terms. The court provides for
three terms In the year, beginning In
January, May and September, and each one
divided Into four divisions of a month each.
The first part of each period Is to be do
voted to arguments and submissions and
the last half to preparation of opinions.
Cases shall be docketed as now for each
term for the entire state, certain districts
assigned to each period. The first assign
ment has already been made by Clerk John
C. Crockett, with the advice of Judges who
are here, and the docket will run as fol
lows: January 12 Cases from First, Twentieth,
Third and Fourth districts.
January 12 Cases from First, Twentieth,
February 9 Fifth to Ninth districts, In
clusive, March 8 Tenth to Fourteenth districts,
mirt Seventeenth tn Nineteenth districts.
Anril 5 Fifteenth. Sixteenth and
Kli-hteentb districts.
This will be the general order ,of pro
cedure of the districts at each term. It Is
figured out that this will give about 350 1
cases to the first term. It Is provided that
the court shall hear and consider these
cases and determine ." them promptly. In
other respects the rules of the court are
not materially different from the rules that
have been in force for years.

meeting was to have these committees go
over the books of the chairman and his ac
counts during the last state campaign and

republican state convention In July last. It
Is the first time members of the republican
committee heve - got together since the

Already the politicians of Southern Iowa
are getting action In regard to the pros

having received on the seventy-fifth ballot
of the convention a majority of the votes.
but before It could le counted, there was
changes that deprived him of the nomtna -
tlon. This record Is believed to give him
great prestige In the race. H. K. Evans
of Cordon has been brought out as an
active candidate. He, also, was a candi
date for the nomination. There are rumors
that T. C. Hardilnger of Clarke county

some. Dates were arranged for all the
state fairs In the midland region.
Object to Assessment.
The Great Western Railroad company Is

vent taxation of its southeastern cut-off

road until It is operated. The Great West

to some of Its lines.
