Oouicil ia Committee of tha Wlol
Eipeoted to Settle the Matter.
Talk of Compromise by Derreaalns
the Minimum Meter Rate aad
Increasing the tkarft for
Ilr'rant Rental.
Some definite action on the water works
rate ordinance ia expected to be taken by
the committee of the whole of the city
rouncll at It meeting tonight, but what
that action will be Is a matter of conjec
ture, .., It ia no. secret that the members of
the "city council re divided In opinion on
the minimum meter rate, which has called
forth such a protest from the small con
sumers, and there Is some talk of a pos
sibility of a deadlock at the meeting to
night. V
Aldermen Tounkerman and Olson have
declared themselves as opposed to any min
imum meter rate and it was street talk
yesterday that Aldermen Crlppen and Mc
Mlllen mlrht join their ranks. If this
should prove to be the situation, it would j
cause a deadlock.' but it is believed that
the committee will realize that some defi
nite action Is necessary and a deadlock may
be averted.
While some of the aldermen, especially
two -members of the special committee
which haa worked on the matter for up
wards of a year, are Inclined to stand by
the ordinance with Its minimum meter rate
of tl, seeing that such a rate Is In rogue
In other Iowa cities where the water works
are owned and operated by the municipal
ity, other aldermen favor a sort of com
promise by fixing the hydrant rentals to
$50 for the first 900 and HO for all additional
ones. It Ms believed, however, that this
would not be satisfactory to the water
works company, altlfmigh no official an
nouncement to that effect has been made.
There haa alao been some talk of fixing
the minimum meter rate at a figure not to
exceed the flat rate for five-room residences
and this would place it at about $7 per
annum. -
The ample discussion that the proposed
ordinance haa received since its Introduc
tion has developed the fact that the rate,
on the whole, are below the average of
rates charged In other cities of the same
else as Council Bluffs. It Is also conceded
that the minimum meter rate of tl per
month would affect but a small minority
of householders.
The city council Is scheduled to meet
Tuesday night for1 the direct purpose of re
ceiving the report of the committee of the
whole and acting upon It. Some definite
action Is looked for. as the present city
administration has but seven weeks more
of life In which to carry out its pledge
made to the people of Council Bluffs In Its
platform at the municipal election two
years ago.

Btewly Fleeted Mayor May Find
Hands Tied by I,aT.
Pliould the people of Council Bluffs, by
their votes on March 25. decide they desire
a change In the city administration, the
new mayor may find himself In a position
whereby he will not be only unable to name
his own chief of police, but will have little
to say as to the men who shall compose
the police force of the city.
It has been suggested that under the Iowa
law providing that preference shall be given
to old soldiers In all cases of state, county
and municipal appointments. Major George
H. Richmond could with all propriety In
sist on retaining the office of chief of po
lice and city marshal. Once in the posi
tion, it la contended that Major Richmond
could ony be removed for cause, end in this
connecon It is proper to state that Major
Richmond has made no declaration that he
Intends to avail himself of the provisions
of the state law in the event of there being
a change In the city administration. His
friends have merely pointed out to him the
opportunity there would be for him to con
tinue as official head of the police force,
no matter of what political complexion the
city administration might be after April 1
Jn this same connection it would be pos
sible for every old soldier In the city to In
sist on being appointed on the police force
should any vacancies occur either by
change of administration or otherwise, and
it Is said the mayor would be compelled to
recognize their right to the positions on
the force under the existing law. At the
same time any old soldier applicant. It Is
presumed, would have to possess the nec
essary physical requirements to fill the

(From a Staff Correspondent)
DE8 MOINES. Feb. lLtSpeclal.) Sena
tor Crossley, the author of the rrlmary
election bill now In the hand of the elec
tions committee of the senate, stated today
that unless the bill is passed at this session
he will Introduce a resolution lste In the ses
sion asking that the matter be submitted to
the people for a constitutional amendment.
"We do not propose that the railroads ehall
forever block his measure," said Senator
Crossley today. "It is too Important a mat
ter. Their tactics may be tolerated for
time, but not for all time. Vnlese the bill
is passed at this session I shall Introduce a
resolution late In the session submitting the
matter to the vote of the people for a con
stitutional amendment. We will know then
where the people stand on the measure. The
bill will come from the committee tome
time next week, it wss necessary 'or me
to be away this week for a time attending
court In my county or the bill would have
been out before. There will be very few
changes reported by the committee. It was
thought best to change the provisions as to
registration somewhat. I understand there
has been some objections to requiring a
candidate for a state office to file a petition
from voters In fifteen counties. These ob
jections do not come from member on the
committee, but outsiders. It Is absolutely
necessary to require such petitions where
a plurality vote Is required or the ticket
would be so burdened with candidates that
no reasonable selection would ever be
For the Moral Kchools.
Senator Warren stated today that the pur
pose of his school bill providing for only
state certificates for school teachers waa to
aid the rural schools. "In the cities there
Is a city superintendent who devotes his en
tire attention to the running of the
schools." said Senator Warren today, "while
In the country there is no one to look after
the country schools. The county euperln-
tendent devotes about half of his time each
.month to holding teachers examinations
and the rest is mostly given to the routine
duties of his office, so that he haa no time
to give attcntfon to the rural schools. This
bill will relieve the county superintendent
of all that work and give him time to visit
the rural schools and look after their wel
fare." The bill has been put on the calendar for
special order for Thursday, following the
Lewis hill, for more specific quarterly
statements from state and savings bank.
Rosy Week la Senate.
Four bills are on the calendar for special
order for next week. The pure food bill
comes up Tuesday forenoon; the Smith bill
to circulate petitions of .consent in cities
every three years, on Wednesday; the lwls
bank bill on Thursday, and the Warren
echool bill on Thursday, following the Iewls
bill. This will be a full week of work for
the senate. The senate will meet Monday
afternoon at 2 o'clock for routine business.
. Honae Awaits Senate,
The house will await the action of the
senate on the pure food bill, as well as on
the other bills to come before the senate
for passage next week. The house finished
Friday with Representative Cummlnga" on
the floor speaking on the boiler Insurance
bill. This will be the first thing up Mon
day. The house has voted to visit the
Agricultural college at Ames Thursday, but
will likely recall It unless the senate recon
siders Its vote and decides to accept the
Invitation and go to Ames also.
C. O. D. Bill Killed.
The house committee on Judiciary has de
cided that the bill drawn by A. I. Smith
of Mount Ayr to put an occupation tax of
j $1,000 on solicitors for C. O. D. liquor Is
unconstitutional and hence killed the bill.
Cummins' Announcement.
It Is unders:i od that the formal announce
ment of Governor Cummins' candidacy as
governor will probably be made Tuesday.
Governor Cummins was first elected gov
ernor in IM, the election being for two
years. He waa re-elected In 1908. and by
the operation of the biennial elections law
his term was extended one year, which haa
given him five years. His term will expire
January 1, 1007. This Is one year more al
ready than haa been given any other gov
ernor of the state. If re-elected for a third
term he will be continued In the office for
seven years.

BERLIN. Feb. ll.-prlvy Councillors M.
Holt and F. Schwabach, whom the Prus
lan government sent to the t'nlted States
In 1904 to atudy American railroad systems,
have Just published an exhaustive work
on their findings, which Is attracting much
attention In the German press. Messrs.
Hoff and Schwabach make many striking
comparisons of the American and Prussian
railroads, often to the disadvantage of the
former. They quote official statistics show
ing that per 1.000.0(0 passengers carried the
American roads killed six times and
wounded twenty-nine time as many of
them as the Prussian roads.
The writer found that the average pas
senger rate waa 105 rents per mile against
.W cent In Prusla. while freight rates
nomlnaly average .78 cent per ton per
mile In the United State against 1.36 cents
In Prussia. Thl comparison, the author
affirm, la fallacious because It Ignore
some essential facts. The American sta
tistics, they say, include freight carried
for the railway themselves, while the
Prussian statistic show only pay freight.
On the other hand, the American statis
tic do not Include high class goods car
ried by express companies, which class Is
Included In the Prussian figures. Further
more, they say, the American roads receive
immense sums for carrying the malls and
the Prussian lines almost nothing, and be
sides, the lotter carry a volume of postal
packages for which the American roads
get large sum from the express com
panies. The original cost of construction of the
Prusslun lines was 36 per cent higher per
mile than that of the American roads.
If conditions were equalized at ell on these
points. Messrs. Hoff and Schwabach figure
that the American average for freight
would be 1.44 cents per ton per mile and
that of Prussia .85 cents.
