After agitating the matter of an over
head crossing over the tracks of the Great
Western railroad at Woodbury avenue for
more than a year the residents of that
section of the city have succeeded In In
ducing the county supervisors to take the
action which the city council failed to do.
The supervisors at their session yester
day morning decided to lay the matter be
fore the State Railroad commissioners with
the request that the railroad be required
to construct the crossing. The following
resolution was adopted by the board:
The Detltlon heretofore filed asking that
the Chicago Great Western railway be
compelled to construct an overhead rail
way crossing on vt oodbury avenue near
the city limits of Council Bluffs, la., hav
ing been fully considered by the board and
said board having examined said crossing
and location thereof, it finds:
That MM crrtitlnff la ilAnftroi. and life
and property are endangered by using said
crossing in lis present condition, ana mm
the prsyer of the said petition should be
granted, and we request and recommend
that the railway commission ot the stale
of Iowa take Immediate steps to cause a
change to be made as prayed In said
At the January meeting of the board
of property owners In the vicinity of the
Woodbury avenue crossing, falling to se
cure any satisfactory action on the part- of
the city' council, filed a petition with the
supervisor asking that they take the
necessary steps to hsve the railroad con
struct the needed overhead crossing. Super
visors Baker and Brandon were appointed
a special committee to look Into th mat
ter and their Investigations satisfied them
that there was need for better protection
at this much traveled crossing. Subse
quently the board of supervisors referred
the petition of the' Woodbury avenue resi
dents to the railroad commission but the
latter 'sent It back with the 'information
that It could not move In the matter until
the supervisors themselves "took some
action. After delays of 'one kind and an
other the supervisors yesterday .decided to
take the action which they did and It Is
now hoped that the railroad commissioners
will likewise act in the matter.

HART HAVISO A HtRD TIME OF IT
Taaale Arises Orer What (sari hell
Charles B. Hart, the man charged with
being a short change artist and swindler,
Is having a hard time getting a hearing In
court. During Judge Scott's absence In
De Moines Justice Otrdiner has been act
ing as police judge, and Hart's attorney,
not desiring to try the case before him,
moved for a change of venue. Under ordi
nary circumstances a defendant can take
a change of venue from police court to the
court of the nearest Justice, who happens
to be Justice Gardiner. Hart's attorney
contended that Acting Police Judge Gardi
ner could not grant a change of venue to
Justice Oardlner, as his client would gain
.nothing by such a proceeding. He (applied
fur and was granted a change of venue to
the court of Justice Field by Acting Police
Judge Gardiner. To this Assistant County
Attorney Ross objected as he had no desire
to try the case before the tatter Justice.
When Justice ' Field received the order
granting the change of venue he Issued an
order on Chief of Police Richmond to pro
duce the prisoner. Acting on the advice
of Assistant County Attorney Ross. Chief
Richmond refused to turn orer Hart to
Constable Palmer of Justice Field's court
and Hart is still domiciled behind the bars
at the city Jail. Mr. Ross yesterday, after
thoroughly looking up the law on the mat
ter, failed to find any authority under the
Iowa statutes for a Justice of the peace
acting In the place of the Judge of the
police court In the tatter's absence. This
being the caae. Mr. Ross decided to ques
tlon the Jurisdiction of 'Justice Gardiner
In granting the change of venue to Justice
Field's court and so the matter stands. It
ts expected that Judge Scott, who returned
yesterday from Des Moines, will take
hand In the case today.
Assistant County Attorney Ross has re
ceived Information which leads him to sua
pect that C. B. Hart Is Manford J. Hart,
who formerly lived at Atlantic, Cass
county, where has was a deputy tax col
lector. A number of years ago Manford
Hart was convicted of forgery and sen
tenced to a term In the state penitentiary,
An effort will be made by the authorities
to have the man In custody Identified as
Manford Hart, If he Is that person.

delegation to the republican state conven

ally disappointed at the result of the con
vention they re Inclined to accept the' sit
uation philosophically and with good grace.
but they -cannot conceal -tne fact -tney
would have felt considerably t better had
their man been nominated. " '
Mr. Hart'' expressed the opinion that' the
ticket nominated would receive the 'support
of the standpatters, although some might
be inclined to bolt if. He said he did not
believe that the bolt would be in anyway
- The same opinion was expressed by Mr.
Wright, who . succeeded In being elected
a member of the state committee from
the Ninth . district. He said "I see no
reason why the ticket should not be sup
ported and I think It will' be. Some of
course are nursing sore spots and may
decide to stay at home on election day
rather than vote for Governor Cummins.
What we hare to look out for how Is to
see that bur county ticket is elected and to
harmonise the factions In Pottawattamie."
Several of the candidates on the county
ticket admitted they felt greatly relieved
when they heard of Governor Cummins'
nomination as they believed . the . ticket
would hare been badly - knifed by his
friends and adherents, had he been de
feated at Des Moines.

Following the visit of the government
architect here plans for the proposed addi

$7000 was appropriated by congress, have
been received by Postmaster Ilaxelton. The
plans provide for the addition to tha west
of the building, and on this account do
not meet with the approval of either" Con
gresaman Smith or Postmaatrr Haselton.
While additional ground, a few years ago
was purchased west of the building in con
templation of being needed at a future date
for an addition. It Is now considered that It
would be more practical to erect the addi
tion at the south end of the building. How
ever, the plans have only been sent here
for inspection and have not been finally
adopted, so It Is. possible that a change
may be made.

Is president, of the organisation which hi
eludes about 160,000 women, about too of
which will attend the convention as officers
and delegates. "
Among the matters that wlll come up for
consideration will be several resolutions
from various departments, providing for
Improvements In the ritualistic and other
services and facilitating the work which
each year calls for more work and special
lied effort. An appropriation of money will
be voted for ' the perpetual care of the
grounds of Apdersonville prison park and
provision will also be made for replenishing
the depleted emergency .fund.
Considerable Interest naturally center
about the election of officers and the selec
tlon of national- president in particular. It
la understood that four candidates will be
offered this year representing the depart
ments of Massachusetts, New York, Mis
sourl and California. It Is not customary
that, a president be re-elected although
there Is nothing to prevent it, and there
will be. no special effort made to return
Mrs. Adams to the first office. Massa
chusetts will present the name of Mrs.

the Young Women's Christian association
will open another active campaign for funds
to complete its building the second and
third week of October. The building fund
has reached about $S6,noo- now,' but It will
require $12.Ono to carry out the architects'
plana of a building that will meet the ac
tual necessities of the association. The
fun4 has continued to grow this summer
and contributions from friends-in and out
of the city prove that the Interest is not
decreasing. A former Omaha woman, now
residing In Portland, Ore., stopped at tha
office to leave $3 one day this week, and
every week has brought Just such evidences
of Interest and desire to help.

elected. The attitude of the leading pa
pers. Is, however, being watched with In
terest. The Burlington Hawkeye, the ed
itor of which is a close friend of J. W.
Blythe. recognised as opposing Cummins
politically, says today:
Governor A. B. Cummlna has been nomi
nated for re-election. The Ilawkeyes es
timate of the msn and the Incalculable
harm he has done the republican party are
well known.' The result at Des Moines In
no wise changed that estimate, and this
paper has nothing to retract that it has
id or mm or the republican principles
for which he has stood. His case is now
remanded to the people, who must pass
upon his future relations to the state.
The Sioux City Journal says, editorially:
Credit for the fact that party integrity
Is to be maintained Ilea entirely with the
stand-patters. Until the vital questions at
lsue were decided largely as Governor
Cummins would have them, his plain
spoken threat of a bolt echoed and re-echoed.
Had the stand-patters been of a mind
to meet force with fores the newspapers
this morning might be scattering broadcast
the news thst the republican party of Iowa
had been split wide open. The opposition
to the governor did not accept the dare,

conveniently at hsnd. and the Justification.

It is not altogether sure that the Cum

committee. They undoubtedly have five
members of the committee and the stand

Ninth, First and Fifth. The Second district

Chairman Spence of the old committee will
likely call the new committee together
about September 1, at which time It wilt
organize. Spence ia succeeded oh the com

talking of M. M. McCall of Story county,
the new Seventh district member, aa the
chairman, and It may be will make an
effort to get the committee together earlier,
or at least the Cummlna members together.
New Ordlaanee Prepared..
A new street railway franchise ordinance
Is being prepared and wilt be ready to
present to the city council probably next
Monday. The new franchise Is being pre
pared by attorneys for the Civic league
and will be far different from other fran
chise ordinances heretofore presented. It
wilt provide for taxing the street railroad
exactly as other property Is taxed In order
that the franchise will be constitutional and
will provide also for payment of a tax
on the gross receipt for the use of the
streets bf the city.
