the city council -tonight. Tliw outcome lay

men la of th opinion ihat there la an In
creasing public sentiment against the prop
osition. Bo far thn ordinance has met with
but little opposition, but It is stated that
when the critical stage Is ' freaehed tonight
mattera will be different. ' . ,
The prevailing opinion appears to be In
favor of the city council reaching a rea
sonable arrangement with the City Water
works company and not attempting to pur
chase the present plant or construct a new
one. The fact that, the city has not the
funds with "Which to purchase or to con
struct a plant Is considered an Insurmount
able obstacle by the business men generally
of the city. To Issue bonds for the acquire
ment of a plant iter by purehnse or con
struction would mean an Increased tax levy
for a long number of years and property
owners already complain that the taxes In
Council Bluff a are excessive.
Another cause for opposition to the mil
nlclpal ownership proposition Is, as It Is
claimed, that the cost of operating such a
plant would be far greater under the city
administration than onder private owner
ship. Again, It Is contended In opposition
to tha plan, that with each biennial change
In the city administration there undoubt
edly would be a change In the management
of the waterworks and the control of the
plant would almost of a necessity enter
Into the city politics each campaign.
There are others, however, who favor rrju-
be best for the city to acquire the present
plant rather than construct a new one. The
construction of a new plant, It la con
tended, would take all of two years and the
laying of the new mains would necessitate
the tearing up of miles of newly paved
In any event whether the present ordi
nance is passed tonight or at some .later
date by the city council Jt Is not blndlAg on
the people of Council Bluffs. Before the
city council Can take any definite steps
toward the purchase or construction
iterworks plant the proposition must
tted to the electors to be voted on
at a special electlori'called for the purpose.
Business men who have been questioned on
the subject give It as their opinion that the
proposition would fall to carry because the
people are generally opposed to Increased
taxation. If the city, had the money or
could obtain It without an Increased tax
levy. It would be a different question, they

The professor had been summoned as an
expert witness In a case involving the own
ership of a tract of coal land.
"I will ask you, professor," said the at
torney for the prosecution, "if the geologi
cal formation of this land corresponds with
the published data pertaining thereto?"
"It does, sir," he answered.
"You have thoroughly read up the geol
ogy of the tract In question?"
"I have not."
"You have not?"
"I ask the Jury to notice that the witness
flatly contradicts himself. Now, sir. If you
haven't read up the geology Involved In this
oase, why do you pretend to know anything
at all about It?"
"Because, sir," said the professor, "In
studying geological formations It Is my in
variable custom to read down."

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Aug. 20.-(8pccial.)-Sen-
ator A. B. Funk of Spirit Lake said today
that he would not support Secretary Les
lie M. Shaw for president. Since senator
Funk Is a warm supporter of Governor
Cummins his statement Is believed to
mean that the Cummins people generally
will not only refuse to line up with the
Shaw people, but in view of the growing
talk of Cummins for president that there
will be open hostility betwen the two
camps of the party In this state. On his
return from attending the Chicago re
ciprocity conference Senator Funk at
tended a meeting of the capltol eommis
slon here, of which he Is a member. Be
frfre leaving the city today he said: "I
shall not support Sbaw and I am not
particular who knows It. If my Influence
in politics counts for anything In this state
It shall not count In favor of Secretary
Shaw," declared the editor of the Spirit
Lake Beacon. "I do not believe that Shaw
represents the people of Iowa on the ques
tion of the tariff. He is traveling about
telling people that Iowa Is In favor of
charging the home consumer more than
the consumer abroad. He Is the standpat
candidate. I am opposed to that idea and
I believe the majority of the- people of
Garnsey on Last Visit.
Artist Elmer E. Garnsey, who has the
contract for the decorations at the state
house, is in the olty on perhaps his last
visit. The 160,000 decorations are now
nractlcally completed, the only work re
maining being a little in the north and
south corridors' and the painting about
the niches that will hold the battleflags,
which painting has been delayed by the
work on the niches. Mr. Garnsey has had
offers to do a great deal of work in the
east, notably on the Carnegie institute at
Pittsburg and one or two big churchbs In
the east, but has been forced to refuse
them on account of his health. The work
on the Iowa state house will be his last
work, possibly, for many years. Mr.
Garnsey is considered one of the Ablest
artists In the east, but he has a crowth
on h'ls neck which has ben troubling him
of late and on the advice of his physician
on the completion of the Iowa state house
he will take an extended rest.
After State Receipts.
Prof. W. R. Patterson of the state uni
versity, who Is doing the expert work on
the state census, will this week send out
to the county treasurers' blanks asking for
a report of all the money received. This
will be the first time in the history of the
state that such information has been gath
ered and the first time t will be known
Just what It takes to run the state. Mr.
Patterson will secure the total tax col
lected, penalty collected on taxes, Interest
on permanent school fund, costs collected
fines and forfeitures collected, fees of of
ficers, liquor tax (mulct), receipts from sale
of produce or stock of poor farm, receipts
for care of Insane, teachers' Institutes.
Prof. Patterson hopes also to show In the
coming census volume exactly what every
dollar of public money was expended for
during one year. It will be the first time
such information has ever been given.
Wright Wins His Fight.
State Dairy Commissioner H. R. Wright
is rejoicing over the result of the election
in the Association of State Dairy and Food
Commissioners which placed an entirely
new set of officers In charge. Commissioner
Wright was Identified with the element
that made the change. He and his friends
claim that the scandal in the association
which was aired In the papers to some ex
tent, grew out of the fact that the con'
tract to print the proceedings of the as
sociation convention was let to a Chicago
house, which paid for the privilege, and
charged high prices for advertising In the
book. This advertising was secured on a
guarantee that the advertisers' goods would
be free from prosecution In any of the
states. On this plea advertising was se
cured for butterlne manufacturers. Com
missioner Wright refused to abide by the
guarantee and proceeded to prosecute for
a violation of the state law. Objection was
raised to the advertising by Wright and
other state commissioners, resulting In Jhe
election of new officers.
Will Be Ready for Flags.
Prof. C. A. Cummlngs of the capltol com
mission stated today that the receptacles
for the battleflags would be In readiness
by the state fair week for the eeremoines
that have been arranged to attend the
removal. The last of the plastering was
done last night and the only work re
maining Is the painting and placing In po
sition of the plate glass.
Would Compel Reports.
In his .biennial report Mine Inspector
Werner recommends to the governor that
the legislature be asked to pass a law
compelling mine owners to make regular
reports to the mine Inspectors. H'e states
that the work of reporting was delayed this
year for that reasotl and says it would
be far better for the mine owners to re
port without the necessity of passing a
law, but fears they will not do so. The
report shows that the mines of the state
are in better condition than ever before.

A. M. Lyons, representing a Mat toon,
