REPUBLICANS MEET TONIGHT

for School Offices.
DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES' TOMORROW NIGHT
Delegates to - City nnd School
Conventions and Precinct
.Committeemen Will De
The republicans .will meet in muss con
vention this evening at 8 o'clock in the
south court room of the county courthouse
to place In nomination two candidates for
members of the Board of Education and a
candidate for treasurer of the Independent
school district of Council Bluffs. Although
Chairman J. J. Hess of the republican city
central committee has overlooked Issuing
his official call for the mass meeting this
evening, It was decided upon at the meet
ing ot the committee held last week. Chair
man Hess was called out of the city Sat
urday morning and this, It Is presumed, ac
counts for his omitting to Issue the official
The two members of the Board of Educa
tion whose tenns expire this month are W.
E. McConnell, republican, and Emmet Tin
ley, democrat. Mr. McConnell, it Is con
ceded, will be renominated this evening by
acclamation, but who his running mate will
be has not hern determined. Public spnti
nient appears to be In favor of giving the
second nomination to a candidate from the
Sixth ward, as it is felt that the west end
Is entitled to representation on the board.
As such candidate from the Sixth ward the
names of J. Harvey Swnrtx of 3402 Avenue
C. Marvin 1). Reed of 22V West Broadway,
president of the West End Improvement
club, and A. C. Keller of 2302 Avenue B,
president of the West Council Bluffs Im
provement club, have been mentioned. It
Is likely that the nomination will fall to
one of these three. William Coppock. who
had been mentioned us a possible candidate
for the republican nomination for member
of the Board of Education, stated emphat
ically yesterday that he had no aspirations
in that direction and would not be a candi
date under any circumstances whatsoever.
For school treasurer the present Incum
bent of the office, H. G. McGee, will. It is
said, undoubtedly be given a renominatlon,
although It is possible that some other can
didate may be sprung at tonight's conven
tion. Politically speaking this week will be a
busy one. Tuesday night the democrats
will hold their precinct primaries for the
selection of delegate to their school and
city conventions tnd to elect precinct com
mitteemen. Thursday evening the demo
cratic school convention will be held in
the .city council chamber. Emmet Tlnley,
the retiring democratic member of the
Board of Education, a few weeks ago de
clared that he would not accept a renomi
natlon, but It Is now understood that he
has modified this statement and that if the
renominatlon conies to htm unanimously.
I which It probably will, he will accede to
the wishes of his party. Who will be the
second nominee has not been announced
und the same Is true of the democratic
candidate for school treasurer.

their ward daucuses or primaries to name

IMPROVEMENT OF INDIAN CREEK
Work of Widening and Deepening; the
Stream Begins Next Monday.
Work on the deepening and widening of
Indian creek, from Sixteenth avenue to
Eighth street, will be commenced Monday.
March U'. This was decided upon at the
meeting last evening of the special city
council committee consisting of Councllmen
Maloney. Tlnley and Olson and City En
The creek between the points designated
will be gone over first with scrapers. The
start will be made at Sixteenth avenue
and evory man and team available will be
put on the Job. with a view of completing
It If possible before the June rains.
If It Is found feasible the dredge now
owned by the city will be put on the work
after the scrapers have llnlshed their work.
City Engineer Etnyre ' is of the opinion
that the dredge can be used on the1 work
by changing the "boom" which. It Is said,
can be done at comparatively small ex
pense. The dredge will be placed on a
car and worked from the banks on tempo
rary tracks. This will avoid the neces
sity of moving any of the bridges, as ex
cavating under them can be accomplished
with the scrapers.
The committee lias not selected the man
who will be placed In charge of the work.
According to the estimate furnished by
City Engineer Etnyre. about 70.000 cubic
yards will have to be removed. As the
committee has only 120.000 to expend upon
the work. It will necessitate the removal of
the dirt at a cost not to exceed 29 cents
per cubic yard. In the opinion of some
ot the city officials tliis will preclude the
use of the big dredge.

MANY SCHOOL BILLS PENDING
Iowa Legislature Proposes to Abolish
County Licenses for Teachers,
MAY CONSOLIDATE COUNTY SCHOOLS
Senator Klnne'a Bill Provides that
the School Year Shall Rod
Jane !W, Instead of In
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, March 4 -(Speclal.)-The
thirty-first general assembly seems des
tined to make a reputation by passing
school bills. One bill has passed the sen
ate by a large majority abolishing county
certificates fcr teachers and issuing cer
tificates from the State Board of Educa
tional Examiners instead. It will likely
pass the house. The Board of Regents
bill is In hand and will be reported from
committee soon rnd there Is on the senate
calendar for speclnl order for Wednesday
a bill that revolutionizes the school year.
There seems to be no opposition to It and
another bill is in the hands of the com
mittee to make easier thf consolidation of
The bill to change the school year Is
deemed by State Superintendent Riggs one
of the most Important bills of ' the ses
sion. At present there la considerable con
fusion and to simplify things the city
schools have for years been' ignoring the
law as to the school year, t.'nder the
present law the school year ends the third
Monday In March at which time the di
rectors take their seats. The law provides
that the directors shall provide school for
a minimum of twenty-four weeks, begin
ning from that time and the election of
teachers must therefore begin then. In
the country districts this has been followed
and the teacher who teaches the fall and
winter term doesn't know whether she
will ge to teach the spring term or not.
The cities have Ignored the matter and
while electing teachers In March have
elected them to begin In September and
teach for the full school year.
t.'nder the present law the fiscal year
ends the third Monday In September and
the directors under the law must then
provide for a school that lias already been
running for about three weeks.
The new bill, which was drawn by Sen
ator Klnne, provides that the school year
and fiscal year also shall end June 9)
nnd begin July 1. In tho country districts
the directors will take office at that tlino
and provide funds and elect teachers to
begin the first of September or any time
they set for the beginning of school. In
the titles where the custom has been to
elect the teachers earlier the directors are
still allowed to do so under the new bill,
but the act Is made legal. The reports
of school officials to the county superin
tendents and the reports of the county
superintendents to the state superintendent
under the new hill Is brought In the sum
mer time when there is less work and It Is
possible to handle them better.
Patent Medicine Bill.
With the exception of the little pamphlets
parsed to the desks of every member of the
legislature by Dr. Kennedy, secretary of
the State Bonrd t f Health, there has been
nothing whatever done to urge upon the
general assembly the needs of a bill re
quiring proprietary medicine concerns to
print on the outside of the bottle the na
ture of the contents. Two bills have been
introduced, one In the house and one tn the
senate, the latter by Senator Young of Cal
houn, who Is a doctor. While there Is noth
belng done by the people of the state, the
patenf medicine concerns have taken the
mrit'er up throurh""the country'newspapers.
The;- do not wish to have any Jabels cn
the outside of the bottle "telling exactly
what Is on the Inside and 'are' endeavoring
to convince the country newspapers that If
this Is required they will have to go out of
business and the country newspapers will
lose the Immense amount of advertising
from that source. The country newspapers
and city papers, too. are writing to their
representatives about the matter. The
Young Mil provides that the ingredients
only shall be shown. There seems not so
n.ueh opposition to showing the Ingredients
as the formula, which would give the per
cent of each medicine.
In the journals of the legislative proceed
ings of a r-ood many years ago it is said
can be found a record that Charles Aldrlch,
now curator of the historical department
of the state library, then a member of the
house. Introduced a hill to prohibit the giv
ing of passes. However that may be, the
state of Iowa will always know Senator
John H. Hughes of Williamsburg as the
father of the anti-pass movement In this
state. He Is ever referred to as the grand
father of the movement at times.
Senator Hughes was one of the early
settlers to the state of Iowa. He located
nt Williamsburg and when the first rail
road came' through, as a public-spirited
citizen and a leader among his townsmen,
ho started out to assist the railroad peo
ple to get the right-of-way. He went with
the railroad agent to his neighbors and
urged on them that they give the right-of-way,
or at least charge as little as possible
on the argument that the coming of the
railroad would raise the price of their land
and that the railroad was a necessity.
He was very successful with his -neigh-bors
and the railroad profited by his volun
tary services In their behalf.
"Now. after all that service, which was
S'tual service and by which the railroads
profited to a very large extent." said Sena
tor Hughes. "I was never offered a pass
over the road. There was an ample reason
then for extending me the courtesy of a
pass, and more than likely If It had been of
fered then I would have accepted it. I was
In the lumber business and could have used
a pass to good advantage tn go to Dubuque
and purchase lumber. But there was not
the slightest move on the part of the rail
road. "But just the minute I was elected to

the legislature and without any solicita
tion whatever on my part, along came a
pass, a courtesy. I had done nothing what
ever to earn it then. It 1iad been many
years since I assisted In getting the- right-of-way,
but here was the pass In my morn
ing mall. I returned that pass. I hav
been offered a good many passes since, but
when I received that first pass I said rlht
then and there that the purpose of that
pass was too plain to me to be mistaken.
"In every session of the legislature since
then In both the senate and home I have
renewed my anti-pass bill and hava been
held up to the ridicule of the public. Don't
think, it has not cost me much to press
this measure. I am a sensitive man and
many a time have gone home discouraged
and downhearted over the slights I hate
received on account of this measure. I
am a poor man. too, and pass would merit
much to me. I have had them urged upon
me at this session of the legislature. I
could use a pass with profit. If I had a
pass in my pocket I could take a run to
Dubuque every now and then and by being
on the ground could save money in buying
lumber and could take advantage of bar
gains as well as get better lumber by being
there to make the selection.
"But I don't ride on a pass. This is a
righteous measure and I hope yet to live
to see the dsy wheu the principle will be
on the statute books of the state."

Adjutant General George A. Newman of
the Iowa Grand Army of the Republic has
mailed to all the posts of the state a gen
oral order In which Department Com
mander 8. H. Harper deprecates the move
of some of the old soldiers to get the sol
diers' preference law passed at the last ses
sion of the legislature repealed. The order
says "the law hns not had time to be
tried sufficiently to test Its merits. It has
dona good In more than one Instance ana
may do much good In others. If it does
any good whatever It has demonstrated the
propriety of Its enactment. Some comrades
may be Injudicious In securing Its benefits,
but that should not deprive others that are

patience and matters will adjum them
selves In time. It is not to be wondered
at tliat those not veterans should bo some
what annoyed at its provisions, but tlcy
forget or never knew that the promises
made before some of them were born are
simply being fulfilled by thjs law. We shall
soon be out of their way and then the law
will be obsolete."
The order announces that the headquar
ters of the Iowa department at the grand
encampment at Minneapolis in August will
bo at the Nicollet hotel. The department
headquarters at the state encampment at
Boone In June will bo at the New Butler.
