Kaaanre riling Ratei Will Nt Be Called
Up Tonight.
Eieratlre la Doohtfol If He C'an
Ktrp Aldermen la Line In View
of Fight on Meter
The ordinance fixing the water rate may
not be brought up for its second reading
at the meeting of tho city council tonight
as had been expected. Mayor Macrae said
yesterday that he would favor letting the
ordinance go over for another week at
least so as to give Its opponents further
time In which to "chew the rag." as he
expressed It.
Mayor Macrae makes no secret of the fact
that he la greatly chagrined over the
criticism which has been meted out to the
proposed ordinance. Personally he is In
favor of standing pat on the measure, but
It la doubtful is he can keep a sufficient
number of the aldermen in line. 8me of
the aldermen, it Is said, are now favoring
making some chnngi s in order to pacify
those who are clamoring against the mini
mum meter rate of 112 a year. Alderman
Weaver, chairman of the special committee
to which was entrusted the drafting of the
ordinance with the assistance of Harl &
TInley, the special counsel. Is like Mayor
Macrae, it is said, ready to stand to his
guns and uphold the ordinance to the last
It Is understood that the West End.
West Council Bluffs. South Bide and Pair
mount Improvement clubs have arranged
to be represented at the meeting of the
city council by good sized delegations for
the purpose of voicing their objections to
the proposed ordinance. It Is doubtful,
however, if the ordinance will be brought
up tonight.
"Every taxpayer In the city is benefited
by the material reduction the proposed
ordinance makes In the annual' hydrant
rentals," said Mayor ' Macrae yesterday.
"If we had placed the- hydrant rentals at
a much higher figure and not decided upon
a minimum meter rate of $1 a month there
would not have been this outcry by the
small consumers, but it is Impossible to
please everyone, and therefore I am In
favor of standing by the ordinance in its
present shape. The committee framed this
ordinance as It thought In the best Interests
of the city. It felt that if it could force
the water works company to accept these
rate what might prove to be afmost end
less litigation might be avoided. If some
adjustment of the rates cannot be made
what will ba the result. The water works
company will be able to get the present
hydrant rentals from the city until the
question is finally settled. The city council,
a It looks now, Is between the devil and
the deep aea, with the water works com
pany objecting to the ratea on one side
and the people not satisfied with the work
' of the council on the other."
A member of the city council was yes
terday Inclined to look on the opposition
to the ordinance from another point of
lew. He stated that he had good reasons
t .believe tha Jhe opposition; to the rates
waa being fomented by republican poli
tician, who see In the situation an excel
lent opportunity to deal the democratic
administration and democratlo party in
Council Bluffs a solar plexus blow. That
tho democrats took upon their shoulders
two years ago a mighty hard problem
when they promised the people of Council
Bluffs municipal ownership and an equit
able adjustment of water rates this alder
man admitted was surely the case.

Fnar Wnmplrs of tmrd Costing; from
7 I -a to IK Cents a Pound Foanit
to Contain Cottonseed Oil
and Stearin.
tFtotn a Ptaff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Feb. 4 (Special.) The
analysis for five samples of lard were sub
mitted to the committees of the house and
senate having III charge the pure food
hills. The samples were secured by the
stste dairy commissioner and the analysis
was made by the state chemist. The price
of four of the samples were respectively
"j. 1" and 15 cents a pound and the
anaylsls showed exactly the same for each
that they composed of cottonseed
oil and sterlne. The only difference was In
the labels on tha cans, which did not war
rant the difference In price. The fifth
sample contained real lard adulterated with
beef tallow and was sold for U'i cents a
pound. These samples. It Is claimed, are
only typical of tho conditions over the
state. It Is claimed that It Is practically
Impossible to buy pure lard In Iowa. The
same is claimed of sausages and mince
meats, which have been extensively ana
lyzed by the state chemist for the dairy
commissioner. The sausages are always
adulterated with powdered crackers and
preserved with sulphite and bornx. It is
expected the pure food bill will be reported
from the committees this week.
Will Re Busy Week.
The coming week promises to be one of
the busiest since the legislature opened.
There 1m to be a light early in the week
on the bill for new trials In criminal cases.
There is to be an effort to get the Weeks
resolution memorializing congress on the
rale question out of the committee and
the school bill for a board of regents for
educational Institutions will be introduced
and the committee will report out the bill
for state certificates for teachers. The
primary bill and the anti-pnss bill will
take the center of the stage this week und
something Is looked for from both com
mittees having those matters.
After Spcclnl Charters.
Senator Crawford of Dubuque denies that
the railroads are in any way back of his
bill to make the section of the code rela
tive to the assessable value of property
being 25 per cent of its real value applicable
to special charter cities. In connection
with the introduction of the bill some of
thu special charter cities became worried
and there is talk afloat that there Is a
scheme to abolish special charters for
cities entirely. Senator Crawford let it
slip that "business men had told" him the
special charters ought to be abolished. He
denied, however, that, the bill wsi any
thing more than an attempt to make the
law clear. "The railroads fought the cities
that assessed the property at its full
value," said Senator Crawford. "In Daven
port the railroads lost their case and In
Cedar Rapids they lost. Then In the appeal
to the supreme court the court was equally
divided on the case, and both lower courts
were affirmed. There was no chance,
through the courts, of ever getting the
thing straightened out. .Now, In these
cities the' bulk of the property Is assessed
at its full value, but the railroad property
at but one-fourth. That Is unfair'. My
bill makes the law relating to assessments
applicable to these special charter cities.
The same thing could have been accom
plished by making it not applicable, and
one method would be about as good as
another. If the law were not applicable
these cities could assess railroads at the
full value, the same as other property, and
the thing would be equitable. Special
charter cities do not have any advantages
that other cities do not, particularly. They
work under a little different arrangement,
but are no better off thun regularly In
corporated cities. All this excitement about
losing their charters is groundless, so far
as I have known."
Ilflli Coming, I p.
The wide tire bill that has passed the
house has been reported out of committee
in the senate and so has a fair chance of
The judiciary committee of the senate
has reported favorably on the bill giving
petit jurors bods. The custom of the past
has been to keep a Jury up till it decided
a case. Sometimes this meant two or three
days. The supposition seemed to be that
after a case had been given to a Jury it
should be allowed to do nothing but eat
till it decided. This bill provides that a
has planned to take up the anti-pass legis
lation the first thing, nnrt as P.nntor
Smith of Mitchell 's chairman and he is
in ftivor of si. on legislation the com
mittee will limn to the task. There Is a
disposition to substitute the Turner bill
for the Hughes bill and make the Turner
bill the bill recommended by the com
mittee. The Mils approach the subject
from opposite sides. Senator Hughes pro
hibits drlrgabs to ion vent Ions and offi
cials and persons In the employ of the
state from riding on passes. He also In
cludes telephone and tMgraph companies
and express companies from which the
persons named are prohibited from re
ceiving "courtesies."
Senator Turner npprunclic the subject
ftom the opposite side and prohibits every
body from riding on passes except certain
perrons. He confines his bill entirely to
the railroads and street railways. It has
been pointed out that the Hughes bill
would shut oft the seed corn specials. Sen
ator Turner prohibits all persons from re
ceiving or asking for passes or from re-
senirer fare than anv other nerson eveent ! meetings were held In the
employes of railroads and street railways,
and these, too. If they are nlso employes of
the., state. Not more than one lawyer or
firm of lawyers is allowed to represent
one railroad In one town. Clergymen are
permitted to ride on half fare. The bill
excepts excursions such as the seed corn
specials and permits newspapers to ex
change advertising for transportation. It
Is argued by those favoring the Turner
bill that Is has less objections than the
other bill, is simpler and will have less
opposition on the Moor of the senate and
house than the other measure.

In a few minutes said that before going
with the officer he would have to step out

thought of no danger In his not returning.
But he took advantage of it and Ib-d. He

MEETEETSE, Wyo., Feb. 4.-(Special.)
Al Ketchum, now known as "Catch'em,"
of this place had a most terrific fight with
a mountain lion a few days ago, by which
he nearly lost his life. Ketchum had been
hut.tlng cats und lynx, when he struck
the trail of this mountain lion and decided
to capture it. He followed the trail nearly
twenty-four hours, when one of his dogs
camo upon the Hon and was killed by tho
huge beast. Ketchum, after this was all
the more determined to kill the lion, and
after about four more tulles trailing again
overhauled him and the dogs treed hlin.
Ketchum came up to within about 200
yards, and at the crack of the gun the
lion dropped. Kechum, thinking him dead
or nearly so, made a run for the tree, but
the beast had only been shot In the moutii
and his teeth torn away. Without these
he was unable to bite, but he began fight
ing furiously, and there is little doubt but
that Ketchum would have been fatally In
jured hod It not been for the help of his
dogs, who hung onto the lion's back and
finally succeeded in getting him away from
the man. The lion airain took to the tree
and two more shots put an end to his
career. The skin of the lion, after being
laid by a hot fire all night, measured just
nine feet four inches from tip to tip, one
of the largest of Its kind ever killed In the
state. The same beast had been glvin
