Mayor Macrae stated last night that he
before going to Omaha to secure a mar

H. V. Rattey, clerk of the district court,
refused it as Flets was unable to prove to
his satisfaction that the bride-to-be was

Mrs. Clausen declared to the police last
night her Intention of filing an Information

most anxious that the hearing should not

he said, to hear the matter this morning

FAVOR AXTT-FIHEOR IfKER BILI,
Baslaesa Men Approve Measure to
Restrict Sale of Explosives.
Business men In general of Council Bluffs
favor the passage of the antl-flrecracker
bill Introduced by Representative Offlll of
Jasper county, which passed the house
Friday by a vote of to I, and It is
hoped that the bill will pass the senate
by an erjuafly affirmative rote. The bill
is much in accordance with the restrictions
placed on the Fourth of July celebration
last year by Mayor Macrae and Chief of
Police Richmond, both of whom hope these
restrictions wfll now become a state law.
The bill provides that no person shall
use, sell or keep for sale within the state
of Iowa and toy pistol, toy revolver, or
other toy firearms, raps containing dyna
mite, fire crackers containing any explo
sive other than black gunpowder and not
excelling three ' and one-half Inches in
length and three-eighths of an inch In
diameter. The penalty la a fine not ex
ceeding tlOO or imprisonment not exceeding
thirty days, or both.
Last year in this city the' discharge of
blank cartridges in revolvers or shotguns
was prohibited and these restrictions can
be enforced on the Fourth of July or at
any other time as the dlschsrgd of fire
arms within the city limits is prohibited

Charles Turnbloom. bartender in John
Doody's saloon at Fifteenth avenue and
Sixth street, was slugged and knocked un
conscious by two thugs while on his way
home late Saturday night. Turnbloom
missed the last car north on Main street
and started to walk. As be passed the large
Implement house formerly occupied by the
Fuller-Johnson-Shugart company two men
stepped from the north side and one of
them struck Turnbloom back of the head
with a sandbag. Turnbloom waa knocked
to the ground and rendered Insensible.
When ho regained consciousness about fif
teen minutes later he found that the thugs
had broken off his watch chain, but had
failed to secure his watch. He supposes
the men were frightened away before they
had time to rob him. He had a consider
able sum of money tn a pocket on the in
side of his vest, but his assailants failed
to get It. Turnbloom Is not certain
whether the men Intended robbing him or
whether they had some grievance against
him and Intended merely assaulting him.

In some counties petitions ot large pro
portions have been circulated and it has
been seen to that tbese petitions bear the
names of the men Influential In pontics.
At lesst two senators have been known
' to change from opiositon to the primary
to a position favorable to It because of
these petitions. The leaders, who favor
the primary, admit that they have not hur
ried the matter of brlmnng up the bill
j In order tn give time for the circulation
of these petitions.
One prominent lesder In favor of the prl-
' mary said today that it had come to be
a question of what the democrats would
do and that a movement was on foot to
get the democratic vote to favor the bill.
It Is 'believed thst if the bill is amended
so that the democratic central committees
will be allowed to name candidates In
case no candidates enter the race that
the democrats would vote solidly for the
bill In the form In which It will come up
February 24. The democratic party being
In the minority there is some disposition
to accede this point. The democrats are
snxlous for It for the reason that being
In the minority they fear thnt often times
there may be no candidate voluntarily an
The changes recommended by the com
mittee in the substitute bill which will
come up the first of next week have been
made with a view to simplifying It. These
are believed to be of far greater Impor
tance than the notices given to them. The
original bill provided that there must be
a declaration of party preference and the
machinery for changing votes was cum
bersome. It was the weak point in the
bill as Is now recognized by the friends of
the measure. This has been eliminated, and
the bill as now drawn provides that at
the first primary the votir wll be given
the ticket he calls for and this will be
taken as a party declaration and so re
corded end unless the voter wishes to
change his party he will not be required
to make declaration at any election or pri
mary following that. He can change very
easily up to within thirty days of the pri
mary by giving written notice to the
county auditor, but to change on the day
of the primary can be done only under
As the registration features of the bill
were the chief objections held by the dem
ocrats and also by a large number of
other members of the senate and house It
Is believed this change win bring votes to
the measure. Senator Lewis of CHrinda,
Garst of Carroll and,b1her friends of the
bill with the author. -Crosnley.. believe It
will win enough votes to pass the measure.
Board of Regents Bill.
The bill creating a lioard of regents for
state educational Institutions, considered
one of the most Important measures be
fore the legislature, was Introduced the
middle of the week In the senate by Sena
tor Whipple snd will be recommended for
passage by the committee some time this
week and go on the calendar under special
order. The bill Is the recommendations of
a commission that visited the educational
institutions of this and many other states
to gain information for the report. It is
claimed that the State Normal, State uni
versity and State Agricultural college now
duplicate the work In part of each other
and cause thereby a waste. The Idea was
brought up last seseion In the form of a
bill to consolidate all Institutions under
one board. It was finally referred to a
commission to Investigate and the bill re
ported is the result. Next to the primary
bill this bill has perhaps had as much at
tention or more than any other bill before
either house at this session. In brief. It Is

Hit rentrallslns; Plants.
The agricultural committee of the senate
has recommended for passage a bill pro
hibiting the purchase of Impure or adul
terated milk or cream for purposes of
manufacture Into articles of food for hu
mans. It also prohibits the manufacture of
such milk and cream Into food and fixes
a penalty for the violation of the law.
While on Its face the bill Is Innocent
enough, it Is In feet an attemrt to curb
the power and growth of the big central
ising creamery plants. It is the claim
that these plants In order to drive out com
petition of the local creameries purchase
milk and cream several days old of patrons
and no matter what Its condition pay full
ma-net price or above. The local creamery
Is unable to handle such stuff and make
good butter of It and cannot afford to buy
it and throw It away and so Is unable to
meet the competition. It Is charged that
the centralising plants take the cream
after It is fermented and unfit for use and
manufacture It Into butter by various
processes. It is to prevent the manufacture
of this cream into butter that the bill has
been brought forward.

La. AD. P. D.. Feb. 11 (Special Tele
gram.) For the first time In Its history
Lead has been the scene of an attempted
assassination by methods In vogue in Rus
sia and Its dependencies.
Cornelius Green, one of the foremen of
the Homestake Mining company, snd th
members nf his family were the victims of
the attempt. This morning shortly after 1
o'clock Kdwsrd Green, son of th Home
stake official, was sitting in one of th
front rooms reading, when he heard some
one approach the house and then leave. He
paid no attention to the matter until he
heard a violent explosion and was hurled
from the chair In which he was sitting
across the room. He was the only one ot
the family awake at the time, but the ex
plosion was so severe that his father,
mother, little sister and hlied girl, all of
whom had retired, were thrown from their
beds. Th explosion had awakened the en
tire population In the neighborhood, and In
a few moments the house was surrounded
by an excited crowd of people. .

An Investigation showed thst the front
of the house hsd been badly wrecked.
Some high explosive, probably dynamlt.

but soon came to Mr. Green Is at a loss
to know why b hsd been singled out as
victim of the assassins or why his fsmlly
had been pieced In Jeopardy, as he Is one

has not an enemy whom he can think of.
Pome time ago It became neceesarv to em

new order, endeavored to revenge them

the scene shortly after the explosion with
