Queen of the Carnival, the ceremony be
ing the closing feature of the week s fes
tivities The crowning took place In the
presence of and amidst the plaudits of fully
fifteen thousand people while Covalt's band
rendered appropriate music In the ab
sence of President Charles W. McDonald
of the Commercial club, Hon. Emmet Tin
ley had the distinction of placing the crown
on the fair young head of the fortunate
candidate for queenly honors.
The contest for the distinction of being
crowned Queen of the Carnival . had been
keen all week, but Miss Ehle did not show
her hand until near the last minute, when
she literally plied in an avalanche of votea
which, ao to apeak, ahe had been keeping
"up her aleeve."
In addition to securing the marked dis
tinction of being crowned Queen of the
Council Bluffs carnival. Miss Ehle waa
awarded the handsome pearl sunburst with

diamond center, presented by the Leffert
Jewelry firm. The crown waa a beautiful
piece of work. In the center of each coro
net was a large diamond, ruby and emer
ald. The crown, while manufactured by
Leffert, waa the gift of the carnival -committee.
-The attendance which marked the closing
of the fifth annual street fair and carnival

The officers of the Council Bluffs Com

business men of Council Bluffs and the
community aa a whole on the exceptional
succesa of the civic and Industrial parade
held In this city laat Monday, and they de
sire to particularly thank each and every
firm and individual who participated in
the parade. They realize that the success
of the events of the week depended largely
on the spirit and unanimity with which
the cltlsens entered into the Initial event
of the week's program, and the unprece
dented success of the carnival waa un
doubtedly in a measure due to the enthusi
asm displayed in preparing for . and par
ticipating in the occasion last Monday. It
la generally conceded that the marching
line was the longest and the exhibits in
tha parade the most numerous and the
.most varied of any parade that has ever oc

ARE WE THE EASIEST MARKS
American Boast of shrewdness Sbat-
y tered by Frequent Ex
periences. Mankind, and especially the American
part of it. has a positive desire to bo
swindled. Then rin ft tin dmiht nt It.
Disraeli referred to the Inhabitants of?,t3r' Wb"r- tney wlU make lnelr home-
the United Statea as ths most susceptible
people on earth, and ths assertion was
true, both In the sense that he meant It
and In a larger signification. Ws are not
only - particularly susceptible to fancied
wrongs or Injuries, but ws are likewise
susceptible to the blandishments of swin
dlers. That is why bunco men flourish,
finding their victims In tha large cities.
It Is not the language of exaggeration,
but simple truth, to aaaert that a achemo
to capitalise Captain Kldd's treasure would
find a market for its stock right hero In
Chicago. It may be said with equal truth
that such a project would be conservative
and promising of substsntlal returns as
compared with enterprises which are now
advertising their stocks In this community
and selling them, too. . Money Is so plenty
nd human greed Is so short-sighted that
ths confidence man cannot make hla bait
too gross. The gudgeons will bits at any
Men do not gather grapes of thorns nor
figs of thistles, yet men can be perauaded,
through the medium of spread -eagle ad
vertisements, that other men are selling
stocks at 83 a share which are actually
worth thrice that sum. It la as if a man
wers to announce that he would sell gold
eagles for 33 each.
In such a case the buyer would be mighty
careful to ses that hs was really getting a
gold eagle. In the Instance cited he takes
the seller's word that ths stock Is worth
no. He credits ths bunco man with phl
lanthrophy and altruism positively angello
and hands In his money to people whom
he never heard of before.
It goes without saying that he never
hears of his money sgain until the post
office authorities swoop down upon the
bunco game with a "fraud order" and the
local police hale the confidence men off to
strong quarters on a charge of swindling.
Vet ths next swindler who happens along
with money enough to hire an office and

BILL IS HELD UP
Injunction U Restrain Pj moot for Work
Dons Outside of Stats,
NSURANCE COMMITTEE REPORT READY
Fraternal and Assessment Companies
Will Bs Compelled to Raise
Rates If Report Is Enacted
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DBS MOINBS, Sept 8. (Special.) John
O. Staley today asked the district court to
Issue an Injunction against the stats pay
tng for the binding of official registers
done outside the state. ' The healing was
before Judge A. H. McVey and the court
set September 17 at 8 o'clock as the time
for hearing ths application. Blule has
been president of the Trades Assembly of
this city. Is now alderman from ahe Sixth
.ward and the publisher of a union labor
weekly paper here. The official registers
for this year are being bound In Chicago
and Staley charges that It Is contrary to
the, statutes to have It done outside the
stats. He ssks for an Injunction against
Secretary of State W. B. Martin approving
the work, against Auditor Carroll drawing
the warrants for the payment and against
the state treasurer from paying the same.
Nearly all the work Is completed now In
Chicago and most of the bound volumes
have been delivered In this city. Stati
Binder Tedford ia not in the city today,
but those familiar with the work declare
that It was sent to Chicago after Iowa
firms had refused to take the work. The
stats pays 8 cents a copy for the binding
of the first 10.000 copies and 6 cents a
copy for each 1,000 after that. About 29.0U0
ara Issued this year. The price is so low
(hat few Iowa firms wish to do ths work
and ths reason assigned for the state
binder not doing It In his own office Is
that the state printer having been behind
all year with a strike has delated the
work greatly and recently flooded the state
binder with work. The official registers
were sent out in order to facilitate tho
work of getting them bound. Tha aum In
volved Is 31,840.
Insurance Report Ready.
The special Insurance committee, which
has for some months been Investigating
Iowa companies for ths purpose' of re com
mending new legislation, haa agreed upon
the salient features of its report It will
not recommend a law requiring periodic
divisions of surplus. The proposed laws
require rraternal Insurance and assessment
Insurance companies to put rates on sate
and sound bases, giving the" present com
panic ample time to make changes; the
use of a uniform policy by fire companies,
favoring the present New York law on
thia subject but not Incorporating the

No Chairs for Legislators.
No chairs for legislators, says ths at
torney general, because tha resolution
passed by ths house wss not passed by
the senate. At ths last session of ths
legislature the house passed a resolution
that any member of ths house might have
the chair In which hs had sat during the
session provided ho paid Its value to the
custodian. No one thought of It being
necessary for ths resolution to be passed
by the senate and It was not sent over
there at all. Many of ths members wanted
their chairs right away, but ths custodian
refused to allow them to be taken from
the building till the attorney general took
a look at the resolution.. The look of the
attorney general was fatal to the chairs.
Before that stats can sell any of its
property the resolution must pass both
houses. A number of ths members of the
house deposited the sum for the chairs with
the custodian and ordered him to send the
chair on. Ths money has been returned to

TANGIER INCIDENT IN FICTION
Chleaaro Bank Wrecker's Cass Almost
Paralleled br Richard
Hardin Da Tie.
Richard Harding Davis, in "The Exiles,"
one of his stronger short stories, paints a
soene of the "lack of the rule of law" In
Tangier that Is singularly reminiscent of
the general principles underlying the ar
rest of Paul O. Btensland In the Moroccan
Keen lawyers declared that the so-called
'arrest" had no legal standing, as there
Is nothing to make a warrant from the
state of Illinois of any value whatever in
tha sultan's dominions. Assistant State's
Attorney Olson "wanted" his man and he
got him. That was all there was to It.
Stensland, to evade the law, had fled to a
land where there was no law.
In Mr. Davis' story the defaulter, Wln-
throp Allen, of New Torll, loots a trust
company, and Just before the crash flees
to Tangier, carrying with him SSOO.OuO In
cash. Of thia aum 160,000 is trust f unda be
longing to Miss Martha Fields, sn old New
York school teacher. Henry Howard Hol-
combe, a reform asslatant district attorney,
chances to be In Tangier when Allen ar
rives there. He learns that the embesxler
has old Miss Field's cash with him, and
in a sudden burst of anger resolves to
force restitution. The young reformer's
stay at Tangier had slowly widened his
view of things, and he resolves to get the
money in a manner that would not do n a
land where the law rules.
Telling the rest of the story In Mr. Davis'
words. It runs as follows:
"Holcombe slipped the revolver Into his
pocket and passed on quickly to a room on
the second floor of the hotel. He knocked
and the door was partly opened. Holcombe
pushed it back with his shoulder, and.
stepping quickly Inside, closed it again be
'The man within, into whose presence
he had forced himself, confronted him with
surprise, which Increased as he recognised
his visitor. Wlnthrop Allen was of erect
carriage, with white hair and whiskers, cut
after an English fashion, which left the
mouth and chin clean shaven. He waa of
severe and dignified appearance and gave

man who had lived a self-respecting, well-
uared-for and well-ordered life.
Holcombe shifted the weight of his body
and closed his hands on the doorknob be
hind him. 'I had a letter about you from
home tonight, Allen,' he uesun comfort.
ablyT 'The person .who wrote it was anxi
ous that I should return to New York and
set things working in the district attor
ney's office in order to bring you back. It
isn't you they want ao much as'
'How dare you refer to my misfor
'Your misfortune! What rot!" Hoi-
combe growled resentfully. 'You mustn't
talk like that to me. A ma.n who has
robbed people who trusted him for years,
as you have done, can't afford to talk of
his misfortune. You were too lung about
It, Allen. You had too many chancea to
put it back. You've no feelings to be hurt.'
"Mr. Holcombe,' interrupted Allen earn
estly, I do not want any words with you
about this. I am here owing to a combina
tion tf circumstances which have led me
through hopeless, endless trouble. What I
have gone through with no one knows. I
am greatly to be pitied, Mr. Holcombe,

think I am. anyway? A child that you can

you to browbeat and bully, Mr. District
Attorney. You seem to forget that I am

Harry; but New York stats laws do not

"'Quite right; that'a it exactly,' aald
Holcombe with cheerful alacrity. I'm glad

that makes It easier for me. Before leav

which belongs to the best, purest and kind

back with me tomorrow to New York.'
"'Are you drunk?' cried the other,
fiercely. 'Do you propose to turn highway
man and thief? If you make a niru'iv.
toward me I'll call the people of Cue'
house and expose you. Do you suppose
I'd let you leave the country with my
money? I'd have you dragged from your
bed this very night, or I'd have you
aelxed as you set foot on the wharf. I
would appeal to our consul general. As
far as he knows, I am as worthy of pro
tection as yourself, and, falling bim, I'd
appeal to the law of ths land.'
" 'You poor thing!' Interrupted Hol
combe. 'Do you know where you are? You
talk, Allen, as though we were within
sound of the cable cars on Broadway. As
for tha law of the land, there Is no law
of the land; that's why you're hers. You
are In a place populated by exiles and out
laws like yourself, who have preyed upon
society until society has turned and fright
ened each of them off, like a dog with his
tail betwen his legs. Tha man who rulea

and vicious and a fanatic. What do you
suppose he cares for a dog of a Christian
who has been robbed In a hotel by another
" 'There is no law,' Holcombe repeated
softly. 'There Is no help for you now or
later. It is a question of two men locked
In a room with $60,000 between them. Wo
have returned to first principles, Allen. It
Is man against man, and there Is no court
of appeal. You are absolutely in my power
to do with as I please!'
"He stopped and without moving his eyes
from Allen's face drew the revolver from
the pocket of his coat. His manner was so
terrible that Allen gaxed at him, breathing
faintly and with his eyea fixed in horrible
"Allen lowered his eyes and turned to an
Iron box on the table. He drew from It a
bundle of notes bound together with elastic
bands. The defaulter bent over his money,
his face drawing Into cloaer and aharper
lines as the amount grew, under hla
fingers, to the amount Holcombe had de-
" 'Sixty thousand,' hs said in a roles of
' 'Oood,' whispered Holcombe. 'Pass It
over to me. 'Now, I warn you,' hs added,
as he lowered the hammer of the revolver
and put It out of sight, 'that any attempt
to regain this will be futile. Your cue is
silence and secrecy as to what you have
lost and as to what you still have with
you. I wish you good night and goodby.'
" 'I persuaded him to make restitution,'
he explained laughingly to his friends."
