THREE SPEECHES BY CUMMINS
Governor Will Address Meetinei at Council
Bluffs, Atoce and Neola.
ROOSEVELT-CUMMINS LEAGUE FORMEQ
Organisation Intended to Offset Work
of Roosevelt Clnb Orannlsed
Governor Cummins Is seeduled to make
three speeches In Pottawattamie county
May 9 and 10. On Wednesday, May 9, ho
delivers an address In the afternoon at
Neola and fn the evening of the same day
at Avoca. He Is expected to spend the
next day In Council Bluffs where he will
speak In the evening. Arrangements for
the meeting here have not been perfected,
but It will be held In the opera house.
The Roosevelt-Cummins Progressive Re
publican league was organized Saturday at
Oakland, In the east end of Pottawattamie
county, and a branch It Is said will be
formed In Council Bluffs this week. Nine
teen townships In the east end of the
county were represented at the meeting in
Oakland and much enthusiasm prevailed.
Recently adherents of Lieutenant Governor
John Herriott, or what is known as the
anti-Cummins faction, started an organiza
tion to be known as the Ilooaevelt Repub
lican Club of Pottawattamie county and it
Is to offset this that the Cummins league
was formed at Oakland. Councilman Rob
ert B. Wallace of this city was selected
president of the Cummins organization with
Representative R. J. Martin of Hancock
as vice president and Hon. J. H. Jenks
of Avoca as secretary and treasurer. John
Fletcher, mayor of Avoca, was selected
to take charge of the campaign In the
The league plans to carry on a vigorous
campaign throughout Poitawattatnle county
between this and the county convention
on May 29, when In addition to naming a
county ticket delegates will be selected to
attend the state, congressional and Judicial
conventions. Governor Cummins' friends
are becoming more sanguine dally of their
ability to carry Pottawattamie county with
Its thirty-five delegates for him.
Five Counties for Cummins.
Reports from several parts of the state
show that Governor Cummins on Saturday
carried Idu, Clay, Plymouth, Grundy and
Calhoun counties, while the standpatters,
or anti-Cummins people, carried Taylor
county. Leading republicans ' t this city,
although opposed to Governor Cummins
being accorded a third term, admit that In
their opinion he will win out and be re
nominated. President Wallace of the Cummins league
stated yesterday that the city will be or
ganized this week. A meeting will be held
this afternoon at which arrangements for
the Cummins meeting on May 10 will be
made and a chairman named. In every
voting precinct In this city, as throughout
the county, a vice president and secretary
of the league will be selected and It Is ex
pected that from fifty to seventy-five vice
presidents will be present at the meeting
here and occupy seats on the stage.

Convention In Force.
The annual meeting of the Iowa Retail
Grocers' association will be held May S, 9
and 10 In Sioux City and the Council Bluffs
Retail Grocers' and Butchers' association
Intends to lie represented by a large delega
tion. The local organization will use every
effort to secure the election of Its presi
dent, John T. Mulqueon, as vice president
of the Btate association, so that he will be
In line for the state presidency. It is ex
pected that from forty to fifty members
of tho local association will attend the
meeting and present plans are to charter
a special car for the trip to Sioux City.
One of the most Important matters to
come before the state meeting is tho broad
ening of the scope of the organization. At
the annual meeting last year, held In this
city, It was proKised to admit to member
ship all retail dealers, and the suggestion
met with favor. Final action will be taken
at the meeting In Sioux City, and It Is
planned to change the name of the organi
zation to the Iowa Retailers' association.
The question of securing the passage of
a national iure food law will also be taken
up by the association nt Sioux City, if one

PLUGGED SCALES ON MARKET
Ohio Manufacturer Telia How His
Device Gives Denier the
Best of It.
The "Ohio scale" war has reached New
York city, .nd has become so furious there
that the federal government may he nsked
to step In and end It in favor of honesty.
The contest Is nn astonishing one. It Is
being waged by honesty against acknowl
edged advertising dishonesty. The estab
lishments In Ohio manufacture counter
scales which have a device for registering
the cost of what Is weighed. One of them
boldly advertises that It cheats the buyer
out of all small fractions of weight by
means of the cost Indicator. This concern
sends to shopkeepers a circular which
Can you do this on your scale? Buy
twenty pounds of pork loin at 9 cents per
pound: retail them to your trade nt 'he
same Drlce. and Eet your money back? We
can on our scale and make you 8 per cent
tiroflt beside. If your business amounts to
$10 a day In sules, we can earn you 30
cents In fractions you don't get now. Thirty
cents a day means you buy this scale every
eighty days. How long have you been in
business? How many have you bought In
that time? Think of It one scale lost
every six months. Iet our man prove this.
It elves the butcher the odd fractions to
which he Is justly entitled. This feature
alone. In the average meat and produce
market, will not only save the cost of
scale in a short time, but In a large market
will save clerks hire, which saving, on the
old pound-and-ounce scales, is entirely lost.
The honest company sent out counter cir
culars calling attention to J tie fact that the
use of these scales might lead to arrest,
and the guilty concern had the effrontery
to apply to a court for a restraining order.
Of course the application was thrown out.
Then the war waxed hotter than ever.
Why there should be any war at all Is
not easily understood. Surely, there must
be some law on the Ohio statute books that
can put these panderers to petty stealing
out of business. If there Is none, the
legislature probably would not hesitate to
supply the deficiency. It Is In session now.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April 29. (Speclal.)-The
last week has been the most strenuous
In every way In the political campaign In
this state thus far. It has Witnessed
Guthrie county voting against its home
county and Governor Herriott still remain
ing In the race. Ringgold county, which
In 1901 was for Governor Cummins, went
for Perkins, and the Tenth congressional
district took radical action and then re
fused to endorse Secretary 8haw, a resi
dent of the district. As a result of the
week's work In conventions and caucuses,
twenty counties took political action which
either by caucuses, primaries or conven
tion, showed the sentiment of the county
and practically In most cases ended the
campaign so far as those counties was
concerned. Cherokee, Polk and Mahaska
counties are the only ones thst will be
disposed of the coming week and while
there la no doubt but Polk county will
support Cummins, the fact that there are
seventy-two delegates to be disposed of, as
well as the fact that for the . first time
there will be a legalized primary vote on
state officers at the Polk county primaries,
Is causing unusual Interest In the pri
maries to be held here tomorrow.

A total of thirty-four counties have up
to Saturday night taken action that Indi
cates the sentiment of the county, most
of them Instructing for either' Cummins or
Perkins. This Is one county more than
one-third of the state. Not so many con
ventions have been called for the coming
week, but Importance attaches to the fact
that the Polk county primaries and conven
tion will be held this week, disposing of
seventy-two delegates. Polk county In 1901
had sixty-four delegates.
Conventions and primaries will ba held
the coming week as follows:
Monday-Conventions In Butler and Cal
Tuesday Primaries In Cherokee and Folk.
Wednesday Convention In Plymouth.
Thursday Third district congressional
convention at Waterloo.
Saturday Conventions In Mahaska, Polk
The Insurance Commission.
Before adjourning last night the insur
ance legislative commission mapped out to
a considerable extent the plan of the work
for the coming summer In Investigating
the Insurance laws. It wss decided that
It will not be necessary for all the members
of the commission to remain In the city
any considerable amount of the time during
the summer, but It was arranged that if
it Is necessary for any member to remain
here Benator Jamison will be available.
The other members of the commission have
private business that Interferes with their
giving more time than necessary to the
work. The secretary, the chairman and the
actuary of the auditor's department will
gather the Information and tabulate figures
as needed and do the greater bulk of the
routine work of the commission. The entire
commission will come together from time
to time to consult and look over the prog,
ress of the work. Toward the close of tho
Investigation the entire commission will
meet for a session of some days to formu
late the final report. The commission de
cided not to employ either an attorney nor
an actuary, though empowered to do so by
the bill creating the commission, partly
for the reason that the funds at the com
mission's disposal are limited to $10,000,
because the commission can have the serv
ices of the actuary of the auditor's depart
ment and because three of the members of
the commission, Senator Jamison and Rep
resentatives Clary and Kendall, are lawyers.
It was decided to employ an attorney only
from time to time aa needed and to call
on the attorney general for opinions and
Cause Ereetlon of Armories.
It Is the belief of Adjutant General W. H
Thrift that the new law which raises the
amount of money available for each com
pany of the National Guard from $300 to
$600 a year will cause the erection of
armory buildings of ample proportions In
a great many of the cities of 'the state
where there are guard companies. Since
$M Is ( per cent on an Investment of $10,0u0
General Thrift figures that It will be possi
ble In nearly every town to Interest people
with money In erecting a good armory for
the guard company will use it but one
night a week and further revenue could
be secured for the other nights. Many
of the companies now have Inadequate
armory facilities and It was the purpose
in Increasing the amount for armory rent
to secure larger and better armories.
Asks Attorney General's Opinion.
Dr. J. F. Kennedy, secretary of the State
Board of Health, has asked the opinion of
the attorney general on the new vital
statistics law, which provides that the
assessors. Instead of the physicians, shall
report births, and changes the law as to
reporting deaths. There Is a question
whether or not under the new law an
undertaker may not bury anybody with
out a permit from any authority. The
law Is somewhat Indefinite on the point.
The law that was repealed provided .that
a burial permit must be secured from the
city clerk or township clerk. The law
providing that physiclana should report
births was repealed and the provisions
made for assessors to make the reports,
for the reason that the physicians did not
report more than about half aa many
births aa it Is known there must have
