STARTS OVER BILL FOR A ROAD GRADER

the . Colonel Carrlee
The session of the boaro of county su
pervisor yesterday wan replete with ar
gument of a decidedly arrlmoiJnu nature.
The action of Colonel W. V. Uukcr in ex
tending few) on a road grader without first
obtaining the sanction of the entire board
started the bull rolling and the other mem
ber were up in arm. Colonel Dakcr
showed that the grader had been pur
chased out of the city's proportion of the
county road fund, but the other members
contended that the machine should have
been purchased, if -fit all, out of the regu
lar road fund and only with the sanction
of the whole board. . After considerable
oratory, which at times was almost torrid
in Ha character, the bill for the grader
Then when Colonel Bilker's bills for hard
wood lumber and other material for county
bridges In his district came up there was
more heated discussion and the doughy
colonel found the ether members of the
board arrayed In solid phalanx against
him. Colonel Baker replied with more or
less warmth to the criticisms of his fellow
supervisors and the atmosphere of the
room became so tropical that County Audi
tor Cheyne felt called upon to open the
windows. Colonel Baker, however, suc
ceeded In having ' the bills allowed, but
during the remainder of the session It was
apparent that there was a certain amount
of restraint or coolness between him and
the other members. At the close of the
meeting none of the members cared to dls
cubs the Incident lieyond admitting that
there had been some heated talk during
Attorney W. A. Mynster, on the certlfl

Saloonkeeper Forney, to the supreme court.
.Mynster originally claimed $300 for his
service, he having been appointed by the
court to defend Rogers.

The county auditor waa directed to have
a water meter Installed In the county Jail.
When the bills for water supplied tha.
court house and jail were presented the
member .of. tha board decided there must
lie something wrong. Last year the" total
cost of water of both buildings was
Jtit.lfl. while the bill for tha three months
of this year aggregated $389.86. The board
felt certain that such an amount of water
could not have been used without there
was a leak somewhere, and the bills were
held up pending an investigation. From

Unjoined from Selling" Park.
Judge Wheeler of the district court has
Issued a decree, although It has not yet
been entered on the court records, making
permanent the temporary injunction se
cured by the board of park commissioners
of Council Bluffs restraining Secretary of
State Martin from selling to the Illinois
Central railroad a strip 200 feet in width
through Big lake, or as it is officially
known, Iikevlew park.
Since the suit waa begun the general
assembly has passed an act surrendering
all of the state's title in the lake and ac
creted land to the city of Council Bluffs.
The Illinois Central was originally granted
a right-of-way 100 feet In width by the
park board through Ixkevlew park, but
fearing that under the law granting the
state the right to dispose of abandoned
river beds some one might purchase the
land, filed an application with the secretary
of state to purchase an additional fifty
feet on each side of Its right-of-way.
The suit to enjoin the sale by the state
of any portion of Lakeview park to the
Illinois Central was Instituted by the park
board last July.

sulted In Converse' disbarment wa held

So Keaee Around Parka.
The announcement that President Graham
of the Park board Intended to put fences
around two little grass plots in Morning
sida addition, which by courtesy are styled
public parks, has aroused a vigorous pro
test from residents in that section of the
rity. They contend that if fenced in these
"parks" will become private pastures for
persons living near them who own 'cows.
Commissioner Graham stated yesterday In
deference to the wishes of the residents
of Momlngslde the two parks in question
would not be fenced, but merely cleared
of the underbrush now encumbering them.
The two graa plots are known to the
Park board as Cook park and Graham pai'c.

Before adjournment of the house today
there was the usual exchange ot compli

Springer, democrat, presented a resolution
highly eulogistic of Speaker George W.
Clarke and expressing thanks for the man
ner in which he has presided. In moving
Its adoption he referred to the fact that two
years ago Clarke had been unanimously
elected speaker and again this year, some
thing never before known in the history
of the state, and the members had always
been treated well. The resolution was
adopted by a rising vote.
Resolutions complimentary to Chief Olerk

The most interesting work of any con-
ference committee during the day was
on the mlllage taxes for the state edu
catlonal Institutions.. The two houses had
voted continuance of the mlllage taxes
under which the college are being built
up, but the senate had added that plans
for all buildings must be submitted to the
legislature. Members of the house be
lieve that this virtually nullifies the pur
pose of the law and objected. The con
ference committee, however, insisted on re
taining the objectionable amendment, but
the house members secured some conces
slons. The trustees are authorized to
deviate to the extent of $26,000 from the
plans approved by the legislature and to
build emergency buildings while the legis
lature is not in session. The local boards
ure ulso authorized to employ their own
architect. Specific approval was given for
the erection of a hall of agriculture at
Ames at a cost not to exceed $260,000. In
this form the mlllage bills were passed
giving the university and state college
one-fifth mill .tax and the normal school
half as much for five years.

Ing of the situation in China, Mr. Murphy
There are undoubtedly strong disruptive
forces at work in China, with no real gov
ernment to control them. A crisis may
arrive at any moment demanding the in
tervention of an armed force for ths pro
tection of th foreign residents.
The boycott on American goods, which
was not considered serious at first, has
certainly taken on a serious aspect, and
the agitation is by no means over. In tha
north the boycott, was suppressed by Yuan
Shlh Kaft viceroy of Chile province. North.
ern China Is now In a peaceful state and
there are no signs of unrest there.
In the south the movement has received
a degree of encouragement from the of
ficial class. Large quantities of American
f roods that were shipped last year are still
ii China warehouses because the con
signees refused to- accept them. I do not
think that the next report or trade con

There I 4o Danger from
LONDON, April . In the House of Com
mon today Thomas Cairns moved the
second reading of the bill to remove re
strictions on ths importation of Canadian
cattle. Existing conditions, he said, were
against the principle of free trade, were
unjust to Canada and Injured shipping in
terests. He declared that the bogey of
disease has been dispelled and that re
moval of th restrictions would not affect
the value of Irish cattle. . '
The members who opposed the bill based
their objections on . ths risk of the re-
Introduction Into Great Britain of the foot-

which the bill gave Canada over the rest
of the world.
William O'Brien, nationalist, said that
if the restrictions were removed It would
render at least iOO.OOO holdings In Ireland
absolutely unprofitable and would destroy
the Irish cattle trade.
Finally, ths Cairns bill was chalked out
without a division.
