DE8 MOINES. July 10. Special.) The

ixecutive council for fixing railroad a:sc.a
memi this morning wan the Sante Ke and
tha attorney lor that line said they wire
eattafied with the assessment provided 11
waa not raised, and In that event he desired
to be heard. The road has but little track
age In Iowa.
Attorney Woodruff for the Chicago Groat
Western, the one road of the state that has
made an Increase In Its not earnings, en
tered Into u long argument to show that
the assessment of his line waa too high,
showing that as compared with the net
and gross earnings the Oreat Western was
assessed higher than any other line In the
state excepting the Iowa Central. He
ahowed that 'the percentage, of tuxes paid
in Whi to the net earnings of 1804 was 17.1
per cent, while the average of the alx larg
est roads waa but 14. 01, and the Iowa Cen
tral alone was higher with 25.75 per cent.
He then compared the net earnings with
the gross showing that the Ureat Western
waa lower than all the other roads except
ing the Iowa Central. Governor Cummins
. tried to get him to admit that this waa due
to less economical management.
Frank P. Crandon of the Northwestern
argued that the assessment a are all too
high and chtlmcd that aa compared with
the. farm assessments the assessment ot
the Northwestern would fix Its value at
$87,000 and said he didn't see how the mem
here of the executive council could Bleep
after fixing the assessment at that high
figure He and Governor Cummins then en
tered Into a long argument as to the basis
for fixing the assessment. Governor Cum
mins argued that the basis as to the value
of a railroad should be what a person waa
willing to puy for It Just as the value of a
farm Is fixed. Crandon argued egalnst this
and thought the physical condition ot the
road should be considered. Governor Cum
mins In answer to the claim that the rail
roads were assessed out of proportion to
farm lands said that if the council found
that lands In Iowa were worth 150 an acre
and the assessments returned to the coun
cil by the county auditors was but $40 then
they would assess the roads at four-fifths
of their actual value. - Crandon conceded
that this waa right In principle, but that
the council disregarded It In practice.
Little, warmth waa developed In the hear
ings today, but when the railroad men ar
gued that the physical condition and cost
ot a road was Important, considerable con
fusion Waa created among; them when Gov
ernor Cummins asked what was the differ
ence In the worth of two roads, one cost
ing $20,000 a mile and on costing S40.0UO,
when the gross and net earnings were the
aame and likely to continue the same.
Holdup Prostrated.
Mra. J. R. Glbaon of 837 Fifteenth Btreet
was ordered to throw tip her hands lost
night as she passed the alley where Frits
Westbrook was held up and shot. Instead
she drew a revolver and on threatening to
use it was unmolested and safely reached
tier home a block away. The police are
confronted with the fact that holdups are
frequent and they are powerless thua far to
stop It. It la now believed that West
brook, who waa shot last Thursday In the
stomach, will recover.

frame of mind Monday morning ana all be-
scr3' cauae of a wild goose chase that ha was
4 compelled to inane aunaay.
Mr. Canada waa enjoying, the beauties of
Lake Manawa with a party ot congenial
spirits, when he received a hurry call to
hasten to meet the Overland Limited going
east. Always ready for duty, no matter
what the occasion might be, Mr. Canada
left the picnic party and, after coming to
this city, went west to meet the Overland.
Tha occasion for this haste waa a message
that a woman had been robbed on the train
of two 1100 bills and that suspicion pointed
to the porter. When Mr. Canada reached
the Limited ho Investigated the matter and
found that he knew the porter and knew
him to be honest, ao concluded he would
have to look for another clue. After a talk
with Mra. W. T. Adama of Kalamazoo, the
woman who had lost the money, he con
cluded her case might bo one of those
which arlae so often in which the women
only think they have lost the money or
Jewelry, while, they have It hidden about
their clothes all the time. So Mr. Canada
Insisted tluxt the woman look farther for
her money, with the renult that It was

discovered that it was only two fl bills In
stead of the two 1X) bills aa had been tele

A motor car on the Fifth avenue line
yesterday afternoon ran Into an automo

F. T. Seybert, both of whom were more or
less seriously hurt. The accident occurred
at the intersection of Fifth avenue and
Sixth street. Oscar Llnder was the motor-
man and W. H. James, the conductor on
the motor car. Both of the Injured phy
sicians were able to be taken to their
The crossing where the accident took
place Is considered a dangerous one, aa
persons driving south on Sixth street can
not see either way on Fifth avenue owing
to the tall buildings on each 'side, which
are built clear to the sidewalk, St. Francis

the parochial school on the east. Dra,
Tubbs and Seybert, with the former acting
aa chauffeur,, were speeding south when
the motor east bound struck the automo
bile In the center. The force of the col
lislon hurled the two occupants of the
auto several feet, while the machine was
DUBhed along for a short distance before
the motor car came to a stop. The ma
chine was considerably damaged, two of
the wheels being broken.
Dr. Tubbs was thrown into the gutter on
the southeast corner and It is thought
that his head struck against the iron gut

Twenty-seven members of the Woman'a

special meeting Monday afternoon and sus
pended hy-lnw Iv to reinstate delinquent
members of the club upon the pajment of

lege to remain open until the second meet
ing of the club in October. The recom
mendation came originally from the art
department, which Is making an effort to
get together former members who have
dropped out, but the privilege of returning
without additional fees could not be granted
to one department alone, so the directory
decided at a recent meeting to call the
club together and extend the privilege to
nil. I,nst fall a recommemlatlon was
brought by the club's constitution com
mittee providing for an amendment of the
by-lnws to reinstate delinquent members
upon the payment of a fine. This recom
mendation the club rejected, but It Was
finally decided that delinquents might be
relnitated upon the payment of $4, of
which i3 should be the regular member
ship dues. The action taken by the club
yesterday afternoon In no way conflicts
with the previous action, for "the 1.1 privi
lege Is merely granted through a suspen
sion and not an amendment of the by
laws, and Is In effect for only a limited
time. It was further decided yesterday
afternoon to refund the extra dollar that
had been paid by delinquent members un

injustice might be done anyone. Notice was

hi Nebraska's Work at Portland
Attracts Attention and Com
ment of Preaa.
H. O. Shedd of Ashland and member of
the Nebraska commission to the Lewis and
Clark exposition at Portland was an Omaha
visitor Monday, having been called home
by the illness of his father, H. H. Shedd,
at Ashland.
Mr. Shedd was in charge ot the Nebraska
exhibition at 8t. Louis. He said:
"While the Nebraska exhibit at Portland
is not as big aa it was at St. Louis, it is
much the same, including the moving ptc.
ture theater with some new features. The
principal effort of the commission has been
to make a distinctly agricultural exhibit at
Portland with a view to emphasising those
products for which Nebraska Is building
up a market on the Pacific coast. Our corn
exhibit Is much better than at St. Louis,
both In quantity and quality, the corn of
last year being of a higher grade than the
year previous. We shall add a poultry ex
hlblt later and our small grain exhibits
compare favorably with other small grain
states. We are now Installing the new crop
of grain, William James of Dorchester,
in charge of the agricultural exhibits, now
being in the state getting up the new ex
hlblt of grain. Nebraska is the only state
making a corn exhibit In the agricultural
palace and It attracts much attention."
In referring to the moving picture ex
hlblt of Nebraska that attracted so much
attention at St. Ixiuls, Mr. Shedd said
"The theater occupies a detached position
Tin the center of the Nebraska pavilion. The
Pacific coast papers have mentioned the
Nebraska exhibit frequently and It ia also

S. C, Hamilton, representing the United

plained the status of the matter and told
the city It could have Its own terms In
which to make payments. Several mem
bers of the council expressed opinions thnt

present election expenses will be saved this

Facilities Needed.
A look through the new detention home
on South Tenth street Monday showed that
Mra. Heller, the superintendent. Is rapidly
getting the place Into shape. At least, this
Is true so far as the superintendent can go.
The county board had to meet such an
unexpected expense to put the Juvenile
court law into operation that Just at pres-
ent the members of the board do not feel
like putting In all the repairs that are
needed on the premises. A bath room for
the children is being Installed in the large
and well-lighted basement, wrjere th work-
Bnop ior tne boys win also be located.
Some of the rooms need papering and the
floors need painting, but at present these
things will have to be dispensed with.
A school . room, on the second floor, I
being fitted up, and it will be a very pleas
ant room for the purpose, too, On the floor
above are the dormitories, not large, but
equal to present demands. There Is also a
good room that Is to be aet aside for an
hospital. If necessary, a case of contagion
could be effectively Isolated here, owing to '
the location Of the room. Another feature
of the home will be a "meditation room,'
where those children who break the rules
will spend a few hours In solitude. It Is the
hope of the superintendent that this room
will not be used very much.
At present there are three girl and two
boy at the home, and the boys will find
a pleasant and agreeable work at cutting
and raking the lawn. One of the girl a ba
bualed herself In decorating the dormitory
In an attractive manner.
