and there Is no reason this year why the
republicans should not regain control ot
the city administration.
JOHN J. HESS.
Chairman of the Republican City Central
There Is absolutely no ipe-stlon about
the re-electlnn of Mayor Macrae. This Is
even conceded by many of the leading re
publicans. Mavor Macrae will be elected
bv a majority of over tut and It would not
surprise me If he even exceeded his ma
jority of two years ago. Indications also
are that the entire democratic ticket
will bo elected by safe majorities and
the same Is true in my opinion of the six
democratic ward councilmen candidates.
The democrats are well organized this
spring and much enthusiasm prevails In
the ranks of the party.
J. J. Hl'GHKS.
Chairman of the Democratic City Central
From the above statements made yester
day by the chairmen ot the republican and
democratic city central committees pn the
eve of what promises to be one of the
most interesting and hard fought muni
cipal elections in Council Bluffs for many
years. It will be seen that both parties
arp confident of victory today. How far
'heir forecasts are correct will only be
known when the ballots ate counted to
night. The campaign, while a short one. has
been a lively one and both sides have been
working hard. It has not been a brass
band campaign, but the candidates and
managers of both parties have done ail
Immense amount of quiet and effective
work since the conventions of less than
two weeks back. Both central committees
were busy yesterday putting the final
touches to the arrangements for today's
work at the polls.
filar Vote Kipected.
The registration indicates a big Vote to
duy and the new vote will undoubtedly
prove a factor in the result. The registra
tion shows thai In the various precincts
several hundred new and "first voters"
will cast their ballots. That they will
form an element which cannot be counted
on by either side is conceded. They may
throw the balance of power to the repub
licans or they may turn the election In
I favor of the democrats and assist In re
taining the present administration In
Friends of W. F. Sapp, the republican
candidate for mayor, were yesterday con
fident of his election and tho same con
fidence was displayed by "'Hie friends of
Mayor Macrae. Mr. Sapp has made a
strong personal campaign since his nom
ination and his friends feel that he ought
to poll the party vote. That there will
be more or less scratching Is fully ex
pected, but this will undoubtedly be the
case with both tickets.
Figures of Last Election.
Two years ago Dr. Macrae's' majority
over Mayor Dell G. Morgan was 518, the
total vote being 4,731', of which Macrae
received J,fi25 and Morgan 2,10.
The majorities of the other successful
candidates were as follows:
Councllmen-at-Uirge ( llson, republican.

but in each ward they are pitted against
different opponents. Two years ago, when
the six democratic candidates for ward
councilmen were rleeteti. the vote In the
several wards was as follows:
First Ward Younkcrman 522, Ohlendorf
4OT; Younkerman's majority, 115.
Second Ward Maloney 410, Woolscy 396;
Muloiiey's majority W.

Location of Polls,
The polls open nt 8 o'clock and will re

It will be nearly midnight when coipplete
returns will be received from the twelve
voting precincts, as many scratched ballots
are looked for.

Betting on Result.
A gooil many bets have been made on the
election today and supporters of both sides
are free with their offerings. The city Is
normally alKiut 600 republican nnd if the
republican candidates poll anything near
their party vote there Is no reason why
they should not win out. Two years ego
the democratic landslide was wholly un
expected and there Is little doubt but that
a large number of republicans voted for
Dr. Macrae purely on personal grounds.
Whether this will be the case again today
remains to be seen, but Chairman Hers
of the republican city central committee
I and other party leaders seem confident
hat Mr. Sapp will offset this by votes, he
will receive from his friends in the demo
cratic ranks. Should Mr. Sapp win out by
fair siied majority there Is no doubt that
he will pull the rest of the ticket with him.
while on the other hand If Mayor Macrae
carries the day it Is more than likely, c-
i cording to the talk of the politicians, that
the rest of the ticket will bo mixed.
According to the pmmites made by Chair
men Hess and Hughes, the election today
la to be conducted on a clean basts and
whisky at the polls is to be conspicuous
by it absence. hlle no money I to te
used by either iarty except for legitimate
efcpcuiKrs, such a lue hiring uf wjiUts,
employment of men to rlieck lists of voter
t and other Incidentals.
Appropriation for Deaf School.
BUite Senator Saunders, In speaking yes
terday of the appropriation for the Iowa
School for the Deaf, said that at least
$.",o,nno would be granted for the Institution
and possibly a few thousand more, but It
would not exceed Ifin.ono. The JnO.nro to be
appropriated, he said. Is for the installation
fif a new heating plant and the erection of
a laundry building.
Originally $ins,oof) was asked for the
school, but the Board of Control cut this
to $72,000, and the Joint committee from
the legislature which recently visited the
school further reduced It to $50,0no. The
house committee on appropriations recom
mended S",Ou0, while the senate committee
placed the appropriation at $52,000. At the
Joint session of the conirnlttees next week
Senator Saunders stated he had hopes that
the amount recommended by the bouire
would be allowed.
The school needs a dormitory building
for the small pupils, but this ,wlll now
have to go over until next yesr. The
grounds of the Institution also need grad
ing and cement walk are required, but
these much needed Improvements, owing to
the reduction In the appropriation asked
for, will have to be postponed.

Ropresentatlve Shaffer has Introduced a bill
In the house that Is aimed especially at
Nebraska, Kansas and other states west of
Iowa. The bill provides that all Importa
tions of cattle into this state for breeding
and dairying purpose shall be prohibited
unless a certificate accompanies the cattle
signed by a competent person stating that
the cattle are free from tuberculosis and all

placed on the state veterinarian. Violation

prisonment for thirty days, or both, and the
firm or corporation violating the act Is lia
ble for all the damage done. The first two
sections of the bill, which embody the main
provisions, are as follows:
Section 1. That the Imnortatlon of neat
cattle for breeding and dairy purposes Into
this state Is hereby prohibited, except when
such cattle are accompanied with a certifi

After Insurance Companies.
Insurance legislation of a character which
the Insurance people of Iowa would call
most drastic and dangerous, but which
seems to meet a popular demand In view of
recent exposure of bad Insurance methods,
is in plain sight. The house committee on
Insurance, after hearing the representative
of Iowa companies and the state auditor,
reported to the house a bill, purpose of
which Is to put an end to the issuance of
deferred dividend policies, In which clas
of policies It Is asserted practically all the
insurance scandal has arisen. This bill Is
practically that which was recommended to
all states by the national conference of In
surance commissioners. It has been revised
and perfected by the slate auditor and at
torney general. It Is a bill following line
of probable new legislation elsewhere. The
first fection of the bill make plain It pur
pose. s follows:
Every old line, legal reserve life In
surance company- doing business In this
slate which Issues participating policies
or is conducted upon the mutual plan

accounting or surplus or profits of all par
ticipating policies issued to residents of
this state after January 1. 1!W, and shall
notlfv the holders of each and every such
policy so Issued of his share of such sur
plus ' or profit on or before the third
anniversary of his policy and annually
thereafter. For the purpose of determin
ing each individual policyholder' share In
the annual divisible surplus each company
shall ascertain what amount has been
AAni.ihni,H m neh Kiiiiilus bv each and
nv,rv such nol lev and the holder thereof
shall he entitled to such proportion or
share of such surplus as shall have been
contributed thereto by his policy and when
such share is ascertained It shall be dis
tributed In accordance with the provisions
of section 4 of this act: provided, that
stock companies issuing participating pol
icies shall not from the surplus arising
from the profits upon suen policies retain
or pay as dividends to siocsnoioeis a
greater amount than their proportional
share of 6 per cent semi-annuai imerem
upon the capital stock ot such companies
actually paid up In cash.
There Is provision for maintaining a
reasonable surplus and for ascertaining the
divisible surplus and carrying it on the
books as a liability until paid, then there
Is provision that every policyholder shall
have the right to elect either of the fol
lowing plan for disposal of his share of
the apportioned surplus:
1. To be applied to purchase paid-up
additions to the policy.
3. To be applied in the reduction of the
i. To be paid to the policyholder In cash.
4. To remain with the company subject
to the right of the Insured to withdraw
the same with all accumulation thereon
at any anniversary of the policy, or to
lie applied to purchase annuities in per
manent reduction of subsequent premiums,
provided thst compsnles may decline to
grant either of the options provided for In
this sulidlvlsion of this section.

proposed Iowa law. It would be a radical
departure from all pust systems. It
would place the Iowa companies on a new
basis, for fullj' SO rer cent of all business
done now Is contrary to this bill. There
Is provision for requiring a medical ex
amination In case a- policyholder elects the

plus. All policies Issued on a different
plan than that contemplated here and In
force In Iowa shall go to this plan next
December. No company shall make any
contract or agreement with a policyholder
for any waiver of any of the provisions
of the law.
Honse Work Well Along.
The house may make an effort this ses
sion to clean everything up without the
aid of a sifting committee. It is stated
there are less than seventy-live bills In
the hands of committees and that the
house will have no difficulty in handling
everything. In the house there are but
two Important measures, that Is to say,
measures that will be debated. These are
the primary election law and the Board of
Regent's bill. The only Important bills in
the hands of the senate are the Inde
terminate sentence law and the insurance
Investigation. If these are passed, as they
likely will be, they will be sent over to
the house and if the house passes the
primary bill It will be sent to the senate,
so that each house has three or four Im
portant measures yet to dlsposp of. The
child labor bill, which passed In both
houses but In different form, cMd not get
to the hands of a conference committee
till Saturday, when the speaker appointed
Hart, Cummlngs, Carstenseil and Clary as
the house committee. The senate some
days ago appointed Whipple. Dowell,
Jackson and Courtright. This bill will all
be settled In the committee.
Passed Through Misunderstanding-.
It develops that a bill passed the house
Saturday through a misunderstanding nnd
a motion may be made to recall it. The
bill provides that state mutusl Insurance
companies shall be exempt from taxation.
It was explained that local and county mu
tual do not pay any taxes and therefore
uie state imiiuaiH suouiu 1101. n u i u wnn
contended that under a recent decision of 1
the supreme court county mutuals would
have to pay taxes, and so the hill was
made to Include county mutuals as welt
as state mutual. Bringing pressure in
order to get the county mutuals exempt tho
bill was gotten through. Now It develops
that the supreme court decision did not
hold that county mutuals would have lo
pay taxes. The state mutuals have been
trying for a long time to get exemption
and those who opposed such a move be
lieve they have been fiimflammed. The
total taxes from the state mutuals amount
to about $."!,onn a year.
The discussion of the Indeterminate sen
tence law will be resumed Tuesday. As
amended and as It will be discussed Tues
day In the senate the bill changes the Ana
niosa penitentiary Into a reformatory and
provides that the governor shall appoint a
Board of Parole of three before the, ad
journment of the legislature, and these shall
be affirmed by tho senate. They shall re
ceive $10 a day and expenses for time em
ployed end not to exceed Sl.ono a year, nnd
shall employ a secretary at. a salary not
exceeding $2,0fi0. They shall formulate rules
for the paroling of prisoners. After July
4. 1M6, all persons convicted of crimes or
felonies other than treason or murder in
the first degree, who are between 1C and 30
years old, shall be sent to the reformatory
and shall not be sentenced for a specific
length of time. They cannot be held more
than the maximum time for the felony or
crime and cannot be paroled sooner Ihun
one year. They cannot be paroled unless
they have arrangements for employment
for six months. The Board of Control Is
given authority to transfer prisoners to
Fort Madison to the penitentiary if they
violate the reformatory rules and If the re
formatory Is not crowded patients giving
hopeful Indications of reformation can be
transferred from Fort Madison to Anamosa.
