Hospital Looking: for Location.
The Woman's Christian association Is
looking for a suitable site for the new
hospital which It Is planning to build In
this city. While the association owns prop
erty on Ninth avenue, on part of which
the present hospital Is located, this site Is
now not considered desirable, from the fact
thr.t the land Is low. The association has
recently decided that It would be preferable
to build the new hospital on a more ele
vated site and several locations. It Is said,
are now under consideration. Yesterday
Mrs. O. H. Lucns, president of the asso
ciation, and members of the board looked
over the Saguln property at the corner of
Washington and' Oakland avenues and
over the Casady property on Washington
avenue near First street. The question of
a site, It Is said. Is to be determined at the
October meeting of the association.

Bnslaess Men Proytae to start an
Investigation of the Financial
Affairs of Des Moines in
Search of Leaks.'
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Sept. 28.-tSpeclal.)-It Is
how anticipated that the state of Iowa
will profit from 1100.000 to J-'50,CO0 by reason
of the dispersion of the vast estate of the
lale James Callanan. He had no direct
heirs and th'e State will collect 5 per cent
tax on all the property which' goes to his
nephews and nieces. The lowest estimate
on his fortune Is 13,000,000, which would
give the state nearly 1150.000 on the tax In
a lump sum, while msny estimate his prop
erty at not less than $5,000,ooo, which would
give the state an Increase of J2S0.0O0 when
the estate Is settled. This will take a
year or two. The bequests will not ma
terially reduce the estate and the Interests
of the state In the collection of the tax
will be carefully . looked after. This tax
has been yielding the state, about 1150,000 a
year on an average. The collection on the
Callanan estate will probably be the largest
ever made by the state. It will go Into
the general fund.
