DIS MOINES, la.. Sept. I. (Special.)
Over a million dollars Is asked for In the
way of appropriation at the hands of the
next legislature by twelve of the fourteen
Institutions of the state that are tindor
the atate board of control. Two institu
tions, those at Council Bluffs and Mltch
ellvllle, have not fled their reports aa yt
with the state board and the amount
that they will ask Is, not known. Prob
ably a million and a quarter dollar will
about represent th figure that 1 wanted
from th atate treasury by thee Institu
tion when all th reports are In. A
number of the reports now In the hand
of the board make requests for additional
land and for buildings, the estimated coat
of which Is not given. The actual appro
priation asked for by the superintendents
In their biennial report thus far filed
amount to $1,0(7,000. The board of con
trol will likely cut down the request
very materially before submitting them
to the legislature, and the legislative ap
propriations committee will. If they fol
low the custom of the past, cut them
down some more. The most modest re
quest Is from Marahalltown and aaks for
120,060. The most extravagant Is from
Independence and 1( for 8195.400.
Fencing, contingent funds, small Im
provement In the way of barna and sheds,

blggeat appropriation asked for. are for
$65,000 for a woman' Infirmary at Mount
Pleasant, $20,000 for a gymnasium and
music hall at Vinton, $18,000 for a hos
pital at Eldora, $75,000 for a cottage at

tion. There Is nothing definitely known
that th opinion will be ready at the Sep
tember term. It was submitted at the last
term of court and msy be brought in by
th court at any regular meeting. Th
court, however, sometime carries a ess
over to a lster period In the term.

In addition. It la presumed that the at

from the governor In order to allow sub
mission of a habeas corpus ease to the su
preme court, will ask for hearing at th
September term of court, as they failed to
make the submission at the May term.

to save hla life.
The case Involving the franchise of the
Des Moines street railway has been placed
on the docket for the September term, hav
ing been advanced. The esse la also before
the federal court on an Injunction. The
stree-t railway attorneys are endeavoring
to hurry the federal court case and the
city Ttttorneys are endeavoring to hurry
the state case. rtoth Involve the same
questions. It I difficult to telt which will
win. Judge Smith Mcpherson has just

New Certification Law.
State Superintendent J, L. McBrlen has
Just superintended ths examination of
nearly 12,000 teachers for county certificate
under th new law. Speaking of the work'
inga of th law and th rules made by his
department, hs said: ' ,
in all of these rules, mad after takln
counsel with our co-workera. there la bu
dim limit placed upon the county super; n
tendent. except a provided in the law It'
alf. and that 1 th minimum grade below
which he cannot go In the certification of
hi teachers. Under th new law th
county superintendent Is ths suprems su
thorltv In th state. Neither this depart
ment, nor hla excellency the governor, nor
the supreme court Itself can force the
county superintendent to accept any grade
or Issue any certificate to any person hi
Judgment would not approve.
So far as the work of our committee Is
concerned, we have no apology to make to
anyone. We have had two specialists for
tha examination of the answer papers I
each of the five essentials. For example,
two examiners have graded the reading px
pera of all teachera. two examlnera havs
graded the arlthmetlo papers, two ths
grammar papera and so on. In addition
thereto, the president of the examlnini
board has reviewed every paper or every
teacher. Thla means that tlios who have
taken the examination In nothing mor than
the five essentials have had their papers
carefully examined by ten peraons and
carefully reviewea ny me president or the
committee. The consensus of opinion of
these eleven examiners is safer for - ths
teacher and th public than th opinion of
any on person. Our examining committee
1 absolutely nonpartisan and nonsectarlan
republicans, democrats, populists, prohi
bitionists. Catholic and Protestant bav
been represented thereon.
Nearly 110U0 teachera have taken the ex
amination for county certificate under th
new law alnca October L 1. Thla mean
an average of at least five subjects for each
teacher, a total of 80,000 answer papers,
with over SOO.OUO pages of manuscript to be
read. Each paper will average nine qu na
tion, which mean a total of 640,000 an
swers, which have been read and graded,

forced the adoption of a new style of p ay.
He doea not know Just how the game lll

A man named C. II. Merry is most per
sistent in his efforts to attract the atten

signed articles in the New Orleans paper
and aend them as clippings to Mr. Guild.
Th following lVn extract from on of
these newspaper articles:
Here Is a plan thst will relieve the nraa.
ent congestion and prevent a rinr,ir.
of it In tuture. 't he distance by river from
New Orleans to Bt. Psul Is $.uud miles. A
strip of land lu) miles wide, with the Mis
sissippi rlvsr In th middle, extending from
one city to th other, will contain Juo.000
pi upoeea 10 oiviae each
until or eighty acr
rill furnish homes
tployment to 20,000,000 of
the exportable products of the 1,000 eeo-
tlon of land. Thla w rehouse wfll ba
four stories high, snd will stand out la
th stream fsr enough to ensble loaded
I ships and steamboats to He alongside at
tow water, r rom this wsrenou
crete roadway will be run Into th country,
a distance of Arty miles, which will bo
th limit of the l.Ouh . sections of - land.
Again, on mil from the river, two lateral
lines of roadways win be started, each of
which will be ten miles lung. This will
bring forty sections of land In touch with
the werehoaae at tha river. Thl .will b
repeated every two - miles . until the end
of th fifty-mile trunk line I reached.
Th s.ouu eigttty-acre carina win all b
Improved witn concrete building and
fence. Under proper restriction, in gov
ernment should advance the money to pay
for the land and th Improvement. It
thirty acre on each of these clghty-aer
farm in the cotton belt wer planted In
cotton, and the land la well cultivated and
fertilised, the yield win be w.uuo.uuu pairs.
Again, thl plan will develop a new -In--duatry
one that ha never bea dreamt
of. It la proposed that each of teiee
farm furnish on ten-gallon can of pilik
dally. Ther will be 8uo of these 8,000 farm
units In the system, between New Orleans
and St. Psul. The dally Supply of sweet
milk will be l.OOu.OuO cans. A totsl of Uk-
Uuu.tfiO in ons yesr. Will the world buy so
much milk 7 This supply of purs milk will
banish typhoid and tuberculosis (ruin our
midst. Under ths present system of care
leas handling and the method of adultera
tion generally employed, every gallon of
milk Is Impregnated with typhoid and
tuberculous germs. It la not certain that
milk will stsnd shipping to Nsw York
snd London. But there Is no que (Ion
about sending It to New Orleans. Vast as
the quantity ia that I havs brought Into
sight, tt is only w per cent of what may
be produced along the navigable rivers of
the vslley, under similar conditions.
