Prorpcts of a rate war In Iowa ara In
teresting Omaha Jobbers and the matter
no doubt 111 come up for consideration at
the next meeting of tha Commercial club.
A reduction of rate to Interior Iowa points
would necessarily work to the disadvantage
fit Omaha and other cities on the Missouri
river. It seems that such a proposed re
duction will have to be fought by Omaha,
Council Bluffs and Bioux City.
Fort Dodge la the point said to be espe
cially favored. The report la that three
railroads operating at that place have de
cided to give that city class and commodity
rate. If the report Is true It means that
Dea Moines anil other Interior towns will
get rate along with Tort Dodge and there
will be a discrimination against Omaha.
It la known here that some readjustment of
Iowa rates Is planned hy the railroads and
it Is a matter which members of the Com
mercial club say calls for investigation.
The Information regarding the plans of
the railroads cornea from Bioux City. The
Journal snya:
It Is said that three railroads operating
Into Port Dodge hv deckled to give that
city clnss and commodity rntes this sum
mer. The roads implicated In this agree
ment are the Illinois Central, the Chicago
Ornat Western and the Minneapolis or St.
Ixiuls. It Is charged that Senator Dulllver
has used his Influence In bringing these
roads Into an agreement In favor of Kurt
Dodge. .
Other ronds not. members of the agree
ment Irt favor of Fort Dodge are angered
at the proposed discrimination In favor of
that city and will make a fight to give the
Other cities of the state a square deal. The
Hock Island has announct-d that It will
make such rates to Des Moines as to pVao
tlcally wipe out the erfect of the Fort Dodge
rates. Other roads operating Into Council
Hlu ffs. Omaha and Binux City will nmki
similar rates to antagonize the roads enter
ing Fort Dodge.
The Sioux city Commercial ctuh and the
Bioux City Jobbers are alive to the situa
tion, letters have been aent to the rail
roada aald to have combined for the benefit
of Fort Dodge asking them to desist, Inas
much aa audi action would result In great
damage to Bioux City. Both O. J. Moore,
president of the Commercial club, and J. H.
Osborne, commissioner, have sent such let
ters. No word has yet been received, how
ever, as to the stand of the railroads.
It la predicted that should the railroada
undertake to give Fort Dodge better rates
than other points In Iowa are getting them
would be a rate war In the state unparal-

Club Hears from Candidates and
, Declines to Accept the secre
tary's Resignation.
At the meeting of the Second Ward Re
publican club at Nineteenth and Vinton
atreeta last night Becretary Davie handed
in his resignation as such, giving as a
reason, his candidacy for membership on
the Board of Education. As only a very
few members were present Mr. Davie was
requested to withdraw hla resignation until
the meeting to be held two weeks hence.
He consented to this. Justice of the Peace
William Altstadt told the club he Is a can
didate for re-election and a number of
.oTotfces" told' AUrt he could liave the oftlce
for life. A. E. Clarendon, candidate for
' the nomination for county superintendent,
delivered an address of some length, de
tailing the progress of the country under
republican administrations and the hard
times under 'resident Cleveland, winding
up with the announcement of his candi
dacy and the good to come from rotation
In public office. President Peterson presided.
There is no chance of any reduction being
m.ide in the county tax levy when the
Hoard f Count- Commissioners meets
next Monday to make the levy. Last year
the total county levy was 15 8 mills,
divided as follows: General fund, t mills
(the limit): mad fund. 2 mills; bridge fund.
I mills; bond sinking fund, ID mills;
soldiers' relief fund, .3 mills. These Items
produced the sum of l4M.(t2.o5. The state
levy In this county was for $175,173.79, and
wltri achool dlstrlrt, school district bond.
village, general poll and special sidewalk
taxes, the grand total for the county was
There are county officials who say that
this year the levy should be for as high
an amount cs It can be made. They argue
that the county Is really at this time doing
business almost a year behind. That Is, as
soon aa the levy for the present year Is
made 85 per cent of It will be available
and will be used to pay warrants repre
senting expenses Incurred in 1901. These
warrants are now all made out In the
county clerk's office.
The county is In better shape this year
than It was at the same time In 1904, to
the extent of a good many thousand dol
lars, but Mi men who want to see It paying
Its current bills as they come due. Insist
that the board should raise all the money
possible under the law, In order that the
end Indicated may be achieved. They. In
sist that In the buying of supplies, for ex
ample, Douglus county could do very much
better In the open market than under the
present system, when the contractors know
they will have to wait many months for
their pay. Borne firms will not bid for
county contracts for supplies on this ac
count. It Is expected that after the meeting of
the county commissioners Saturday morn
ing a meeting of the local board of equal
isation will be held for the purpose of
having a preliminary dlscussslon and sur
vey of the situation. Then on Monday the
equalizer will get together and make the
annual levy.

MOBILE, Ala., Aug. 2. 1S05.-TO the Editor
of The Bee: In the fall of li00, while I
waa stationed at PInevllle, La., aa puper
lntendent of the Alexandria (I.a. National
cemetery, an Incident occurred which lllua-
tratea the native wit of the Illiterate negro
Jum outside the wall of the cemetery.
In the edge of a vast pine foreat, stands
an old negro church, or "church house,"
aa the colored people say. The building had
long; since been deserted and the "fat
pine" benchea "toted" away for kindling.
A foreat fire swept the timber and
threatened the former temple of worship
with destruction, but through the timely
efforts of a former pastor of the church,
aided by & mixed crowd of whites and
blacks, the old "church house" was aaved.
Naturally the aged former pastor waa
the center of attraction as the fire fight
ers stood In a group ' Indulging In
reminiscences after the flamos had passed
by. Among the number was an old resi
dent, who wns famlllur with the history
of the church, hla brother having built
It for the colored people. Addressing the
former pastor, he asked: "What became
of the stone which used to stand near the
door of the church?" The picturesque old
preacher replied:
"I reckon, sah. you has ref'ence to de
stone wld de perserlption on hit. Well,
sah, I taken dat away wld my own hands.
Vou see, sah, It had de name ob de
chu'eh on hit. an' ft had my name as
! pastah on hit, an' t wasn't no moh de
pastah, so I Jes' taken hit away.
I "You see, sah, we has to readah unto
J Cnesah de tings wfint am Paesah's and
unto Uo-od de tings, what am uo-ou s.
And the venerable "man of God" re
moved his hat as he spoke the name of
the Deity. Nothing could have been more
dramatic than the ; tone and manner of
the aged speaker. The pompous tone of
the old pulpit orator so Impressed me that
I ventured to ask: "Which arc you. God
or Caesar?"
Quick as a flash ime the reply: "I I's
Caeca h; I I seized de Jne."

I want to endorse your article about the

If that Is the way Mo cut down expenses
I move we go back to the old charter and

Proposed Mnrrlaitt,
Damage aults, sm:ill and large, aggrega
ting over $&,(), have been filed In the dis
trict court within the last two days. The
city and the Bankers Union of the World
are defendants In two suits, while private
parties draw the others.
Principal among the cases In amount In
volved Is the breach of promise suit of
Charles G. Roberts against Ellxnbeth, Fred
and Jane Meyer. Plaintiff asks for $25,000
damages from Elizabeth and the same
amount from the two others, who are, ap
parently, her mother and father. He al
leges that April 10 of this year, and again
on June 6, Elizabeth Meyer and he became
engaged and he says that on the last men
tioned date Elizabeth asked him to marry
her, which ho consented to do. He seta up
that they named the day on aeveral occa
sions and that he stood ready to perform
hla part of the pact, but that the defendant.
Elizabeth, refused to do her part. Against
the other two defendants Roberta alleges
that they told false tales about him to
Elizabeth, that they opened letters he sent
to her and that they have alienated her af
fections by a threat to disinherit her If
she married plaintiff.
Albert Jackson, lit aulng Max Wlntroub
for $6,100 damages, alleges that on July 17
the defendant forcibly broke Into his dwell
ing place near the southeast corner of
Thirteenth and Davenport and threw his
wearing apparel, his linen and hla house
hold goods Into the street, against the pro
visions of the statute In such case made
and provided.
Bridget Agnes Dixon, who sets up that
she Is the lawfully wedded wife of Thomas
Dixon, aska the court to allow her dam
ages In the sum of $5,000 against Edward
Coyle. Bhe charges that defendant used of
and concerning her certain false and de
famatory language reflecting on her chas
tity and faithfulness as a wife, on June 18
and at other dates.

will be made at the city hall to determine
the amount of gas per hour consumed by
the Welsbach burner as compared with the
old fish-tall burner. The test will lie In
charge of Gas Inspector Lynch and will be
witnessed both by representatives i.f the
city council and the gaa company. Vce
President Clalwugh of the company laa
consented to the arrangement.
It la the contention of the c.'u.inWmen
who demand cheaper gas atreet Pgr ting
that the improved burners reduce the con
sumption of gas narly one-half, whereas
the gas people say that the saving la noth
ing like this, and In fact amounts prac
tically to nothing. They assert that they
have to pay a royalty of $8 yearly on each
burner and that this makes a chirge of $08
annually per lamp lmperaajve. On llio other
hand, councllmen declare Hhat tho com
pany controlling the Welsbach patents and
that controlling the Omaha Gas company
are In reality Identical and that the royalty
Is merely ona way of exacting more money.
"I don't want to see the price put down
where the gas company loses money," says
O'Brien, "but $28 doesn't look right lo me.
Perhaps the test will set aome old-time
controversies to rest. We know that the
gas company Is constantly assuring us that
by using Welsbach burners and mantels
the cost of our gna bills will bo reduced
and our light Improved. If thla Is Hue,
why do not the burners save g is on tha
posts In the atreet? I want to get at tha
fa?ts and for this reason tha tt will be
m id i, probably next week."
