Ml, Benevolent and. Protective Order of
.Elks, held their annual lodge of sorrow
I'n tribute to and In commemoration ot
their deceased brother at .the New theater
yesterday .morning. - Not In one year since
the organisation of the Council Bluff
lodge had, the grim., reaper laid hla hand
a heavily" on the lodge as It had thla year.
Of the ten members ..who. have died atnee
the lodge, was organised six-passed away
Anting the last. twelve months..
The exercises,, whk-h were open to the
public, were attended; WV gathering of
the members, thole-, families and . friend
which filled the auditorium. The stage,
which waif occupied by the office of the
lodgo, the'' speakers.' and the singers, was
beautifully st off with many palma and
potted ferns,., while the orchestra pit waa
banked with the same. On the speaker's
table waa, a magntflcant bouquet of white
chrysanthemums. The members of the lodge
inarched from the club house to the theater
In a' body 'and occupied the front seats In
the parquet.
Following the opening exercises accord
ing to the ritual of the oMr, conducted
fcy Exalted Ruler Bender and the officers
of the lodge, Rev.' J. JV4msn of the
Christian Home offered prayer and was
ollowed by the singing of the anthem.
"Jerusalem,' the Golden," by the choir of
Bt, Paul's Episcopal church. Preceding the
first address by Hon, B. ' B. Wadsworth,
Mrs. W. "W. Sherman and Mrs. Robert
Uullls sang .the duet, "Bun of My Soul.".
Mr. Wadsworth said In part:
Trlbnte of a Brother.
we meet here on this occasion and pause
for a moment ; ln the struggle of . yfe to
reflect upon the memory ut (those- wbd have
panned away; to hush our ears to the out
side world while our thoughts listen to
the familiar tread, the gentle word, the
heart pulsations of our -once familiar
brothers, who, in their Journey of life, have
reached the last milestone of earthly trials
and who have peacefully laid down to sleep
on the pillow of death. In the "wlndowless
chambers of rent."
To our departed brothers earthly vicissi
tudes have given way to the eternal peace
of the shining stars; that Incomplete ex
istence we call human life has given-way
to the perfect atmosphere and cloudless
skies of eternity; earthly discord Is trans
' formed Into the harmony of the 'heavenni
where the stars sing their eternal songs of
rest and peace.
In our ritualistic work we have a time
to call to memory our absent brothers in
, life. With buoyant spirits and light hearts
i lift our glasses and send greetings and
godspeed to our absent brothers. In sick
ness or In health, In Joy or In sorrow, on
land or on sea.
On this occasion 'We call 'to memory our
brnthem ntment in .alh. Tir) a v mim lift
our souls In memory of all the holy asplra-J
parted. We bow- In -reverence before the.
aaored altar of their memory, with tears
of thought and sorrow, like unto the chil
dren of Israel, when remembering Jerusa
lem . In their captivity, they hung their
harps upon the willows and mingled their
tears with the waters of Babylon.
At the close of Mr. Wadsworth' address
Mrs. Sherman rendered the solo, "There la
a Light Mine Eye' Hath 8eeh)'and rarely
ha Mrs. Sherman been In better voleeor
heard to better advantage. . V1 " '
Horu. John t Webster of Omaha then
bade the principal addresa of the day, say
ing In part:
Nat eeaaloa, of Grief.
i uo not iook upon ims occasion as one
for grief or mourning. These exhibitions
of feeling belong to the privacy of the
family whose tins have been broken and
where loving hearts have been melted by
the sadness of separation. Tills public
meeting is a memorial service and in re
membrance and commemoration of the
worthy service and lovable characteristics
and touching actions; the charities and
benefactions, that graced the life of our
deceased brothers. We knew them aa
living men; we remember them as living
men with noble traits of character who
associated with ' us In the sunshine of
happiness. Bo our memorial service Is not
one of grief over their departure, but of
pleasant rememorance.
in our moaern American uis we noia
memorials in commemoration of the life
' and services of benefactors to mankind
and of leaders In thought and action who
have left their Impreaa upon the people.
Once a year we keep in loving remem
brance the life and service - of George
Washington, the father of our country,
f Abraham Lincoln. Its savior. They are
not made ccaalona for mourning or grief
aver their death, but for the giving of
txpresslon to our admiration for their
Ives, .of our sppreclstlon for the results
rf their schlevements and of our gratitude
to them for the splendid national Inherit
ance we enjoy. looking toward the cheer
ful side of life we have made these ocoa
Mons something more than memorials. We
have turned them Into celebrations and
Bo closely are birth, life and desth
linked together, and so universal Is their
phere that they must be accepted as a
tontines, an expression of the will and
fiurpose of Ood. Were It not for these so
sr as the humsn understanding can go the
existence of Ood would be useless. The
changes that have been worked by desth
have not been to the disadvantage of the
world, but rather to Its bettsrment. When
the old has given place to the new we
have generally found progress Rnd im
provement. The phllneophy of modern life
Is moving us onward toward a common
brotherhood of man.
May we also live our lives that when.
In the hereafter, the men who are engaged
In the field of action shall turn bark to
read the lesson of our experience, that they
mav there And encouragement from ex
ample and thought to help them work out
the future destiny of our country and
God's will for the human race.
The names of departed members were
shojvn on an electric lighted screen on the
stage and aa roll call of the honored dead
waa read by Secretary Troutman the lights
were extinguished and each name in suc
cession parsed from view.
Following' the closing ceremonies, accord
ing to the ritual. Rev. J. G. Lenten offered
the benediction, bringing the exercises to
an end.

The Council Bluffs, Tabor & Southern
Klectrlo Railway company will nbt ask the
city council for a franchlsi to enter Coun
cil Bluffs, but instead the Interurban Ter
minal A Belt Line company will submit to
the aldermen at' their meotlng tonight an
ordinance granting them a franchise to
operate within the city limits. The Inter
urban Terminal & Belt Una company Is In
process of formation and t ie men compos

the Council Bluffs, Tabor & Southern Elec
tric Railway company. The Tabor line
will have its terminal near the Iowa School
for the Deaf and from that point its busi
ness will be taken care of by the Belt Line
The promoters of the Tabor line are con
fident that when their line from Council
Bluffs to Rockport Is completed and suc
cessfully In operation that other Interurban
lines will spring up in this section of the
country, each of which will seek an en
trance Into Council Bluffs. The first of
these to follow the Tabor line, they say,
will be one from the north,' vhlch will en
ter Council Bluffs on North Broadway. In
fact, according to their statements, such a
Une has already been planned and will be
built as soon "as the . Tabor . Use Is com
pleted. Following this line from the north
there will come electric interurban lines
from the northeast and southeast, the Ta
bor line commanding the territory south.
, With a view to provide for the future
and these other interurban roads the In
terurban Terminal tc Belt Line company
now seeks to get first in the field and se
cure a franchise for a line encircling the
city. ;
In the ordinance which will be submitted
to the city coundll tonight the streets
sought to be occupied by 'the Belt Line
company are divided Into four subdivisions.
The first subdivision comprises the streets
which the company proposes to occupy at
the outset while the other subdivisions
comprise such streets as will be required
as the proposed Belt line is constructed in
the future.
Connecting with the Tabor line at Its
terminal near the Iowa School for the Deaf
the Belt line will enter the city on South
avenue at its Intersection with Gar
field avenue, and thence on Tostevln street
to Nineteenth avenue; on nineteenth ave
nue to High street; on High street, between
Nineteenth and Eighteenth avenues; on
Eighteenth avenue from High street to
Third street; on Third street from Eight
eenth avenue to Ninth avenue; on Ninth
avenue from Third street to Fourth street
and on Fourth street from Ninth avenue
to Story street. At this' point the loop will
be formed and the end of the line found
for the present. The loop will be formed
as follows: On 8tory street from Fourth
street to Main street; on Main street from
Story street to Fifth avenue; on Fifth ave
nue from Main street to Fourth street, and
on . Fourth street from Fifth avenue to
Story street
The . right to occupy these streets as
named and as designated In the other three
subdivisions will be asked for.
The ordinance provides for a maximum
fare of & cents within the city limit.. It
also provides that construction work on
the streets named in subdlv's'on one shall
be commenced by July 1, 1904, and fully
completed by July 1, 1906. Work on streets

Children Have Narrow Escape.
Mayhew Duncan, a boy about 10 years
old, and his little companion, May Carter,
r.ged I years, were in Imminent danger of
crowning in Indian creek yesterday after
noon but for the prompt csalatance of W.
W.- Boyne, an ox-member ef the fire de
partment, who rescued the children with
considerable difficulty. ,
Toung Duncan and his companion were
skating on the creek near Benton street,
when the boy skated too cloae to the thin
Ice at the edge of, what Is known as the
dam pool. The Ice gave way, and young
Duncan, In an effort to save .himself,
dragged the little girl Into the, Icy water
with him. Other children standing on the
bank called for assistance, and Boyne,
hearing the cries of the children that some
one was drowning, hastened to the scene.
Not realising that the water was deep at
the point, Boyne Jumped in after the chil
dren, only to discover that he could not
touch the bottom! With considerable dif
ficulty he secured the children, bqth of
whom were completely exhausted and be
numbed with the cold, and with the as
sistance of William Hall of Benton street;
who had been attracted to the scene by
the cries of the children, he' succeeded in
bringing them to dry land. Hall's arrival
waa most opportune, as Boyne, with the
weight of the two children, was unable to
aecure a firm footing on the Ice, which
kept giving way under the combined
weight of the three. The pool formed by
the Bow of the water over the dam where
the children fell m Is nearly twenty feet
deep. ,

(From a Staff Correspondents
VKS MOINFiS, Dec. . (Special.) The
fact is made plain In the biennial report of
the superintendent of public Instruction,
Just filed with the governor, that while
Iowa Is a growing state and Its population
has shown a steady Increase, the school
population is not on the increase and
school attendance and enrollment is ac
tually decreasing. This Is accounted for
In part by some evidence that there is less
care ln the securing and perfecting of re
ports than formerly, because the tendency
Is to have smaller families as the degree
of literacy Increases, and becauae of the
fact that there has been a great Immigra
tion to the west and northwest in recent
years. ,A great many families have gone
from Iowa to Canada and states of the
west in recent years, and as a rule they
are large families, moving out to places
where an abundance of land can be secured
cheap. The number of scholars enrolled In
the public schools of the state the past year
was B50.2O2, while last year the report was
660.173, a loss of nearly 2 per cent in one
year. Notwithstanding' this. the report
show an Increase in the number of teachers
and the amounts expended for school pur
poses. Deputy Superintendent.
Superintendent Barrett makes a number
of recommendations in his report. He
would have a legal deputy authorised for
each county superintendent, and he should
have authority to visit schools. The legiti
mate traveling expenses of a county super
intendent should be borne by the county.
The county superintendent or a county
board of education should be given the
power to condemn school houses unfit for
school use. There are 1,000 school houses
In Iowa that are poor and unfit dwelling
places for children. The passage of a law
making It possible to unite school districts
Is urged. The law regarding the adoption
of books by county boards of education
should be amended so that all adoptions
and' readoptlons should occur on the same
day throughout the state. There is some
doubt, which should be cleared, as to
whether text books may be adopted with
out providing for their sale at the same
time. There is need of amendment ln re
gard to the extension of city boundaries
so that residents of forms annexed shall
have a right to be heard before being de
prived of Independent school life. The
school corporations should be allowed to
Issue bonds to the amount of at least 8 per
cent of the actual value of the property,
aa It has been found that under the present
limitation money cannot be raised to build
school houses of suitable slse. There should
be a suitable penalty provided for failure
to comply with the publlo school library
law, which has not always been obeyed.
He would have the school corporation fall
ing to comply with the Jaw, be deprived of
Its portion of the school, apportionment,
employment Agency.
As a further aid to recurlng good teach
ers, Superintendent Barrett makes the
recommendation that a sufficient sum be
provided the superintendent of publlo In
struction to employ a ' competent person
whose duty It shall to assist hoards of
directors ln securing suitable teachers, and
to render aid to touchers seeking poslticws.
Many boards annually apply to the depart
ment for teachers, and teacher often In
quire for vacancies. The s.nnual expendi
ture of nearly $6,000,000 for teachers1 sala
ries alone, together with . the fact that
nearly 20,000 t'ichers are required to sup
ply the .schools, calls for far greater aid
on the part of the state to get employer
and employe together without unnecessary
expense. The present appropriation made
to the office of superintendent of publlo
instruction Is Insufficient to enable the de
partment to employ a competent person
to do tha work required, and as a conse
quence teachers' agencies undertake to se
cure positions for teachers on ths payment
of certain annual or biennial fees. As a
general rule, teachers located by agencies
are required to pay S per cent of their an
nual salary to the agencies, ln addition to
the enrollment fee charges of $1,60 or $2.
The amounts received by ' the teachers'
agencies are unknown, but are reported
to be large ln proportion to "the services
rendered. If an agency places one super
intendent at $2,600, five at $1,200, and ten at
$600, the total income for obtaining posi
tions for sixteen persons is $767, estimated
on the above percentage. To secure posi
tions for three times the number weuld
give an income equr.1 to the superintend
ents of our beet clues. Superintendent
Barrett says ha has made this recommen
dation on behalf of the teachers, and not
kgalnst the agencies.
Longer Contracts.
The recommendation made In the last
biennial report that authority be given
boards to employ teachers for a longer
period, since the limit as fixed by a deci
sion of the supreme court Is now one year.
Is rehewed. Thirty-seven per cent of the
superintendents In charge of city school
systems in county seat towns ln 1898 have
left the profession. 3 per cent have
changed locations, thus leaving 24 per cent
unchanged In six years. An estimate made
with considerable care shows that nearly
10,000 changes in schools are made annually
when all schools are taken Into considera
tion. Permanency In school work is 'essen
tial if the beat results are to be bad. Su
perintendent Barrett says he can think of
no objection that can lie urged againat the
enactment of a law granting boards au
thority to employ superintendents, prin
cipals and teachers for Iwo or four years.
It Is contemplated that such law should
be permlsatve, not mandatory.
