GREAT WESTERN ORDINANCE HELD UP

Complying with Agreements Before
It la Granted Aay Farther
Councilman Wallace did not hava the
opportunity to voice his objections to tha
proposed lighting contract with the Cltliens'
Us and Electric company at tha meeting
of tha city council last evening, as owing
to tha absence of Mayor Macrae the com
mittee on lira and light postponed Its re
port until Monday, August 27. to which
time tha council adjourned last night.
Councilman Wallace, however, succeeded
In blocking the passage of the. Ordinance
granting the Great Western railroad a
right-of-way at Fifteenth street across
Ninth avenue to Eighth avenue, where it
proposes to connect with the tracks of the
Burlington. When the ordinance was
brought up for passage .on the recommenda
tion of the committee of tha whole, the
councilman from the Third ward spoke
at length In favor of side tracking the
ordinance until such time as the railroad
would carry out the requirements of the
ordinance granting It a right-of-way Into
the city, relative to the maintenance of
arc lights at its crossings, and especially
at Main street and Ninth avenue. The
Company, he said, had utterly ignored this
provision In its charter and In his opinion
it would be a good thlnf to refuse to pass
this ordinance until It compiled with tha
orders of the city council. After some dla

The proposed dike will be about a mile and

southeast corner of tha lake, at what
would be Fifteenth street, to the east end
of the bridge, skirting the river bank for
the last half mile. The estimated cost will
be between $2,600 and $3,000. and Mr. Scott
stated that his clients would be willing to
pay their share of tha cost.' The matter
was referred to the streets and alleys com
mittee with Instructions to report at the
next meeting of the council. ' '"l " '

the depleted condition of the streets and

REINSURANCE REGULATION THE MEDIUM
Philippine Veteraas Meetlaa; at Dea
Molaes Plaa to Hold the Session
Two Years Heaee la
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Aug. 13. t8pecleX)-Flre
insurance men of Iowa are accused of
trying to work a repeal ol the Blanchard
anti-compact law by recommending to the
legislative commission, and endeavoring to
get It to recommend to the legislature, that
In tha proposed uniform policy bill there
be a provision that where one insurance
company reinsures a risk with another
company they be required to charge the
same rate. The recommendation la Innocent
enough on Ita face, but the members ot
the legislative commission were able to
scent the ultimate results.-. The Blanchard
anti-compact law prohibits Insurance com
panies from conspiring to- fix rates. It
prohibits what Is known as board rates on
insurance. The fire Insurance men fought
the law through the courts and the su
preme court of the United States some
months ago held It t6 be constitutional
and since that time the. board has been
abolished and the rates on Are Insurance
have gone down at a sharp decline. The
provision which the lire Insurance men
are now urging upon the Insurance com
mission Is that companies shall be com
pelled to fix rates Instead of prohibited
from doing so.
In all Urge risks It Is the custom of In
surance companies to reinsure a part of
the risk In another company, and they wish
the legislature to compel them to charge
the company reinsuiig the same rate that
the company getting the. business charges
the person Insured.1 This Would, of course.
require that they meet and agree on the
rate, and the usual provision In all bills
that "all acta and parts of acts In con
filet herewith are hereby repealed" would
do the rest towards completely repealing
the Blanchard anti-compact law. During
the past few days the Investigations be
fore the legislative commission have dig
closed that rates on the average are about
66 per cent. Of what they; were Just before
the United States supreme court held the
law prohibiting board-rains , to be consti
tutional. This Is variously vxpiained by
fire Insurance men as being due to the San
Francisco losses, which have compelled In
surance companies losing there to skirmish
for new business In order" to raise ready
cash and to the efforts of those not losing
to hold their own with the companies los
Ing- In California. Testimony given before
the commission shows that where on dwell
ing houses In Dea Moines the rate waa 60
cents per $1,000 per year, the rate Is now
60 and CO cents for five years, though In
the business district the decline has not
been so much, though It has been sharp. .

nd hours of labor and the number of
employes In Identical establishments In
both 1904 and 1906. While the nures pre

It Is believed they are fairly reoreaen-

As there was an Increase In the number of
employes as wen as in tne weekly earnings
per employe, there was a considerable In
crease In the Weeltlv earnlna-a nt all
ployes, or, In other words. In the amount
of the weekly pay roll. This Increase was
8 per cent in (he establishments invetlga
ted. When -the fis-tlraa nt tMa artlla Mt.ilKtf

m succeeding article relating to retail
prices of food are brought together, it
s seen that the retail prices of food, due
weight being given to the quantity and cost
fferent commodities rnnanmed.
were 8 8 per cent higher in 1905 than ' In
1904. As the averaae waaea Der hour in
creased more than the retail prices of fooJ,

In 1906- .the Durchaslnsr nowsr of hnth

words, an hour's waaee in J90S would nur.

The average wages Der hour In 1906 were
18.9 per cent, higher than, the average for
the ten-year period from' 18S0 To" 1899 in
elusive. The number of employee was 33 B
per cent, greater and tne average Hours ot
labor per week were 4.1 per cent, lower.
The average earnings per week were in 19u6
14 per cent.' higher than the average earn
ings per week during the ten years from
18:j to lfe9. The agcrexate weekly earn
ings of all employes that is, the total
amount of the pay-rolls were 61$ per cent,
higher in 190o than the average during the
ten-vear Derlod rnvned.
The retail prl of the principal ar
of food, estimated according to family
sumption of the various articles, waa 12.4
per cent, higher In 19n& than was the aver

199. Compared with tha average for the
same ten-year period, the purchasing power
f an hour s wages in is was s.s per cent.
greater, and of a week's wages 1.4 per cent,
greater, the Increase In purchasing power of
the weekly wages being less than the In
crease in purchasing power of hourly wages
because of the reduction of hours of labor
during the period.
"The average wages per nnur in 1'Jn was
.$ per cent, higher than lt-St. the year of
lowest wages during the period covered,
and weekly earnings were 16.7 per cent,
higher. The purchasing power of an
hour's wages was greater In if 16 than in
any other year covered by this Investiga
tion, being 7.7 per cent, greater than In
1894, the year of lowest wsaes, and 1.3 per

est retail prices. The purchasing power of
a week's wages In 1905 was $.6 per cent,
greater than In 1694, but $.7 per cent. less
than In lb96."
In making tha Inquiry the labor bureau,
attempted to cover only those Industries in
which the wages paid In the United States
In one year were $10,000,000 or over. - The
data presented was- obtained In all cases
