A pickpocket succeeded In making a good
haul at the local Burlington depot Thurs
day evening, William Fields, a stockman
from Ulysses, Neb., being -the victim. While
waiting for a train Fields wss relieved of
his wallet containing $lo0 In currency and
certificates of deposit and other securities
amounting to $4,310 or $4,760 In all,' but failed
to discover his loss until he reached Pacific
Junction. From there he telegraphed the
Council Bluffs police, giving a description
of the contents of tho missing pocketbook.
The police at once went to work on
tho case, and found that an employe of the
Burlington had picked up the missing
wallet In the yards some distance from the
depot, where It evidently had been thrown
by the thief. The $4E0 In currency had been
taken, but the thief had not-risked detec
tion by carrying off the certificate of de
posit and other securities. These wore
found scattered about within a few yards
of where the wallet was picked up. The
currency secured by the thief consisted oT
twenty-two $30 and one $10 bills.

for lowa cities, will this year at lt annur.l
convention ask for mtnh more drastic
legislating. This will be legislation along
the lines of state con'ml of municipal
service corporations snd taxation of the
aamr) by the executive council, consisting
of the governor, secretary of state, treas
urer and auditor. At present the assess
ment of such corporations Is fixed by h
assessor wlh power as n board of review
resting with the city council. The fact
that the league, besides securing the uni
form system of accounts law, tins secured
practically every other piece of legislation
It has asked makes Its action on this matter
one of vital Importance, though the legisla
tion proponed will probably be more vigor
ously opposed than any It has yet cham
pioned. It Is proposed In the bill, which
will be discussed at the annual convention
In this city' on September 1' i 14. to
require that . the state shall annually,
through the office of the' auditor of state.
make an Investigation of the accounts of
all such municipal corporations as street
railways, electric light and gas companies
and water works and publish the snme.
This will Inform the clttkens of such cities
of the financial gains of the corporation
from an unbiased source and better guide
them In the control. This, with the placing
of the assessment of such corporation in
the hands of the state executive council.
It Is asserted, will eliminate entirely the
participation of such corporations In city
politics. President Harry Oroes of this city
is ardently In favor of the proposed bill
and other officers are also. It Is probable
that after discussing the matter at the
convention a legislative committee will be
appointed to urge It upon the legislature.
The league will at Its convention discuss
number of matters, such as pertain to
sewage disposal and sanitary problems that
