Tha meeting called for last night to dis
cuss tha question of paving lower Broad
way resulted in a resolution being adopted
requesting tha city council to pava tha
confidant that tha aldermen would consent
to thla. aa he claimed that he had received
but little aupport from the aldermen In
his offloe to Improve the city. "Why, I
can't even get the bunch up their (point
ing In the direction of the city ball) to
allow me to get a sweeper to keep the
streets clean with," he said.
With the exception of Alderman Maloney,
who arrived Just before tha close, Mayor
Macrae was the only city official who ap
peared to attend the meeting. Even Alder
man Crippen, the representative of the
Blxth ward, the realdenta of which are urg
ing the Improvement of this portion of
Broadway, was conspicuous by his ab
sence. George M. Keller, who spoke on
behalf of the West Endera referred to the
absence of Alderman Crippen and made
the assertion that If Broadway waa not
Improved the alderman from the Blxth
ward "would lose hla job" .next spring.
Mr. Keller said he spoke with authority, as
he was well aware of the sentiment In
that part of the city.
Walts oat Curbing;.
Contractor Wiokham waa present and in
reply to the question If he was ready to
go ahead with the paving between Thir
teenth and Twentieth street and complete
tha work this year, stated he was prepared
to commence operations the moment tha
curbing was In.
Contractor Jensen has the contract for
the curbing, and Mayor Macrae stated that
Jensen had told him he waa ready to go
ahead aa soon aa ha saw any Indication
tbat Wlckham waa prepared to do -the
Supervisor W. F. Baker, who called the
meeting, spoke at length on roads and road
making and for a time the meeting re
solved practically Into a "goods roads"
meeting, and tha main question, that of
improving Broadway, nearly got lost In
the shuffle. Colonel Baker - claimed that
the solution of the question of Improving
Lower Broadway was "wide tires," and
he urged that an ordinanoe covering this
be passed by the city council. During the
discussion It developed that a few years
ago the city council naa passea a wiae
tire ordinance, but that later the meaaure
Former Alderman W. C. Beyer auggeated
the plan of reducing the width of the
Btreet to twenty-four or thirty feet and
thereby reducing the expenae of the pav
ing. Mayor Macrae said ha favored Mr.
Boyer'a suggestion, but the aldermen, he
said, seemed opposed to reducing the width
i f any of the streets, and cited the cases
Of Madison avenue and Ninth avenue.

At o'clock this morning the time will
expire in which R. A. Brown at Co., the
plalntlffa in the Harrison-Pottawattamie
county ditch Injunction ault were given to
aecure from the aupreme court an order
restraining the supervisors of the two
counties from entering into the contracts
1 with the Western Dredging company and
Pollard. Goff & Co. for the construction
tit the Ittlnft Hitnhea Tn tn last nlrhl Pnnntv
I Aujitor cheyene had received no notice
that gucn 4 restraining order had been se
cured and aa George 8. Wright, local at
torney for Brown Co., waa out of the
city nothing could be learned In the matter.
It Is not known even If any effort was
made during the week to secure the re
straining order from the supreme court.
It is thought likely that the matter of
the bond proved an obstacle to Brown ft
Co. trying to secure the restraining order
and that tha company decided to merely
take the case up on appeal In the ordinary
manner to the supreme court. In the in
junction suit in the Monona-Harrison
county drainage ditchea the parties seeking
the restraining order to enjoin the super
visors of tha two ccuntlea from entering
Into the contracta after they had been
awarded, were required to furnish bonds,
It Is Bald, In excess of 1400.000. The con
troversy in the Monona-Harrison county
ditchea waa very similar to the one in the
Harrison-Pottawattamie county ditches.
The boards of the two countiea are sched
uled to meet in Joint aesalon In thla city
next Tuesday, when. If the restraining
order la not secured by Brown A Co. from
the supreme court, the contracts aa recently
awarded will be entered Into. It Is not
thought likely, however. If there Is no fur
ther delay in the matter of signing up
the contracts, that work on tha ditchea
will be begun this year.

HEPBtRS TALKS OH PHILIPPINES
lalted States Baa a Difficult Taak to
CRESTON, Ia., Oct. W.-(8pecial.)Colonel
William P. Hepburn, representative of the
Eighth , Iowa congressional district, dis
cussed today his recent trip to the orient
with the Taft party. Colonel and Mra. Hep
burn arrived at their home In Clarlnda Fri
day, having stopped at San Francisco for a
few days after the arrival of the party at
that port. Their homecoming waa made
doubly enjoyable by the spontaneous recep
tion accorded them Saturday by the people
of Clarlnda, among whom they had lived for
forty years. This event was a testimonial
to the high place In the esteem and affec
tion of their old friends and neighbors
which Colonel and Mrs. Hepburn enjoy and
the fact that tha day was their golden wed
ding anniversary was an additional ele
ment of pleasure.
"We had a most delightful trip," aald
Colonel Hepburn, in reply to a question.
"During tha entire trip of almost three
months, most of the time on the ocean, not
one of the 104 persons who composed the
party was sick. Wa were favored with tha
beat of weather and encountered no storm
of any consequence, a rather remarkable
fact, conaiderlng the frequency of typhoona
in tha Islands. There was a big storm some
time previous to our arrival and the devas
tation of the great typhoon of a few weeks
ago is well known to newspaper readers."
Colonel and Mrs. Hepburn Joined the Taft
party at Honolulu, having sailed from Ban
Francisco the last day of May for the pur
pose of visiting their daughter, Mrs. Maggie
Chamberlain, at Honolulu. They remained
in Hawaii until July 15. when tha Tart
party left Honolulu. Colonel Hepburn
talked most entertainingly of the trip and
especially of the time spent In the Philip
pines and In Japan and China. He Is not
only of an Investigating turn of mind, but
he is a close observer as well, and the In
formation ha obtained was wide and varied.
Asked regarding the value of the Philip
pines to this country ha replied:
"The Islands are commercially desirable.
The soil Is fertile and perhaps half the sur
face of the land Is tillable. The variety of
the products and the eaae with which they
are produced are wonderful. The only thing
that can prevent the rapid progress of the
country toward wealth Is tha character and
disposition of the Inhabitants. Politically
I am very doubtful aa to the kind of a
bargain this country obtained. We have
them, however, and it is our duty to fit
them for Independence. This Is a mst
stupendous task and it is my opinion that
long before It Is accomplished the people
will be so firmly attached to this country
and' Its institutions that separation from
the United States win be about the last
thing they will want. At the present time
the great mass of the people are satisfied
with political conditions; they would be
satisfied under any government which does
not oppress them or rob them by unjust
and burdensome taxes and which protects
them from the depredations of the ladrones,
the organised band a of pirates and robbers
which scourge the country. The Intelligent
realdenta of the country who have meana
are also well satisfied and would deplore a
change of any kind. The agitation for Inde-
pendence comes almost entirely from those
men who are more advanced tn education
than the average, but who have, aa a rule,
little property; whose Idea of government Is
that the people of the Islands are divided
Into two classes, the class of obedience,
comprising the great mass of the people,
and the class of direction, composed of the
few, and of these they are to be, the lead-
ers. Ths demand for Independence is made
by men who see themselves at tha head of
the new government ruling the people and
Simply substituting for Spain's monarchical
government an autocratic government Of
which they shall be tha rulers."

DES MOINES, Oct. 11 (Special.) Sam
uel McConkey, an old shoemaker, was at
tacked and probably will die from the In
juries he received at the hands of two
men this morning. McConkey la about (t
years old and Uvea at tit Jefferson Btreet
Early this morning two men were seen to
run from his home and It Is asserted they
entered the home of Mrs. Ella Butler, a
few doors south. Immediately afterward
McConkey was discovered with his head
badly beaten and 10 of his money gone.
Mrs. Ella Butler was arrested and thla
afternoon her uncle, Thomaa Powell, waa
arrested and both are held awaiting an
Investigation. Several gashes were found
In McConkey'a head, but he revived suffi
ciently to tell the police something of the
attack. The section he lives In is one of
Iowa Haa Many Suckers.
In the issue of the Iowa Health Bulletin,
the publication of the State Board of
Health, Dr. J. F. Kennedy, the secretary
of the board, says 'today that Iowa has
more "suckers" who are taken in by quack
doctors than any state in the union. In
an article of two pages, amounting to two
newspaper columns, he describes the con.
dltlons as very bad and states that legis
lation should be enacted, but hopes that
education will yet do much to show the
people that every one who claims to be
"phenomenal" at curing Is not always so,
He criticises the physicians of tha atate
for not fighting quacks more and saya
that many physicians protect the quack
by testifying at trial that they are super
vising the work of the quack. He states
that the right of physicians to give this
protection will shortly be tested In the
Labor Legislation Asked.
In the biennial report of the atate labor
commissioner, filed with Governor Cum
mins today, the recommendation Is made
that the next legislature pass a child labor
bill. The report states that much haa been
accomplished by the atate factory In
Bpectora, who have succeeded often times
In convincing the factory owners not to
employ chtldren, but points out the need
of legislation. The report also recommends
a law requiring the Inspection of all boilers
used for steam power purposes, a law pro
viding a penalty against the removal of
safeguards from dangerous machinery and
a law requiring a report of all disabling
Ex-Mayor Is Candidate.
Ex-Mayor James Brenton, who following
his term as mayor engaged as a bartender,

streets, rising te-the position of Inspector,
Is now a candidate for police judge. Bren

ing up and regaining his lost reputation,
and the candidacy for police judge is a
part of his program.
Denver Widow Gets Money.
The Denver widow of the late E. L. Dtl-

Tha Denver widow established her claim to

along with all
other nersons who sua-
ported the reaolutlona passed at the confer- I company said today that there was abso
ence yesterday. The conference effected a ,utel ,n h bl express

work. Mr. Ellett said today: "The resolu
tions bind every one who took part In the
deliberations to work for a constitutional
amendment' and pledges all to not vote for
any candidate who will not denounce the

will never denounce the mulct law and
hence there will be but one party the Anti

vote for. and that Is the prohibition."

plans for the future, but It Is presumed
that he will again take up the practice of

of a century or more. His wife and son are
with him tn Olobe, Arls., at this time, his
son having taken steps to locate in that
state for the practice of medicine. Whether
