C. W. Kellogg, attorney for C. D. But
terfleld of Missouri Valley, appeared be
fore1 tho board and presented a claim of
I1.UJ0 for land taken by the Harrison-Pottawattamie
drainage ditch. The claim was
made that Buttcrflcld, had no notice of the
proposed ditch being put through his land,
whereby about fifteen acres are appropria
ted, and hence he could not file a claim In
time for the board meeting.
The claim waa referred to County At
torney Haas, who shortly thereafter re
ported recommending the rejection of the
claim on the ground that sufficient formal
notice had been given by publication and
that the claimant had slept on his rights.
Tho report and recommendation of
County Attorney Haas was adopted and
the Butterfleld claim disallowed.
Under the drainage law a committee con
slstlng of two commissioners and a con
sulting engineer must be appointed by the
board of commissions to classify the lands
and assess the benefits thereto In all drain
age districts, the same to be taxed against
the property so benefited. Messrs. S. C.

pointed, who will have charge of all the
surveys and construction work of the
drainage ditch. The selection of this en
gineer is also left until the meeting of
Thursday morning. An effort will be made

About 70,000 acres of land will be reclaimed
by the ditch. The land comprises some of
the most fertile in the Missouri valley.
The name of C. L. Huff of Logan, la.

the ditch work, hut he waa defeated by a
vote of 3 to 6. The Harrison county com
mlssloners only voting for him.

DES MOINES, Aug. .-(Special.) State
Auditor B. F. Carroll la back from the con
ference of Insurance commissioner held
yesterday at Chicago to outline a plaa tor
an Investigation of the big eastern life In
surance companlea. He refused, however,
to give out any statement aa to whether
or not he will Join with the other states
In the Investigation. It la learned, how
ever, that the real reason why the states
of Iowa, llllnola and Michigan did not Join
yesterday In the plana ot the other four
atatea la because of a belief that thla la
not the time to begin the investigation. The
feeling la that having waited till the legia
lature of New York began an Investigation
the western states can well afford to wait
till that investigation is completed. There
is no denying that the officials ot all tha
atatea feel that while startling disclosures
have been made by the officials of Ne
York there may be still worse reports to
come. "There la no question but that theee
big Insurance companies are aulvent," vol
unteered Mr. Carroll, "and the lnteresta'ot
the public will not suffer more it an In
vestigation Is delayed a little longer."
The other members of the executive coun
ell are out of the city today. Mr. Carroll
would not say whether or not he would
take the matter up before thctn on their
return. There la a poastblllty since the In
vestigation la to be made anyway by the

The commerce of the United Slates has
Increased beyond the dreams of the moat
