FINDING 1 HOSPITAL SITE
Board of Csntrol Bound to Locata Tuber
cnloiii Sanitarium This Week.
NECESSARY CONDITIONS HARD TO MEET
Democratic Claims of Control of the
Lcglslatnrc Arc Kot Ulvlnst the Re
nahllcnns Any tnenslneea
Hlg Shortage of Cars.
(From a Staff Corresnoudent.)
DES MOINE8. Oct. 21. (Special.) An
other attempt wllf. be made this week to
find a site for the state tuberculosis hos
pital. It la more than likely that the
State Board of Control will determine on
a site this week, as there are indications
that the difficulties of transportation nil
wnter are about to be overcome. Chair
man Hamilton of the board said today
that ths hoard will start out Monday morn
ing to revisit some of the sins that have
been offered to the state and will explore
some sections of the state In which no
sites have been offered, but where the board
Is In the hone of discovering something
that might do. Almost the entire week
Just passed has been spent by the State
Board of Control In consultation at the
state house discussing the problem or u
site for the tuberculosis hospital. Th?
members of the board have about agreed
unanimously thnt an Ideal site cannot be
had In the state of Iowa. The Ideal site,
meaning that ' the view and elevation be
Ideal, but at the same time accessible for
a railroad switch and for street car trans
portation for the general public and at the
same time furnished with :'n abundance
of good water and possibilities of drainage.
It is also desired that the site he cen
trally located. The board would probably
like better than anything to locate the In
stitution near tills city If the site could
be found. Indications now point to the
selection of a site Ave miles out from Iowa
City If nothing better Is offered. This
site Is known as the Cllne farm. It has
the south slope that Is so much needed
and Is wooded. It Is reached by the In
terurban and affords opportunities of drain
age. It Is a beautiful site, but the water
Is an untested problem. The only objec
tion Is the uncertainty of water and tho
fact that It Is not In the center of the
state. However, the site, is probably bet
ter than that of almost any other Insti
tution except the Soldiers' Orphans' Home
at Davenport, and if selected would prob
ably be approved generally. The board
will put In this week on the problem that
has thus far baffled the members and will
then make a selection. There Is one thlpfc
certain, and that Is that the transporta
tion facilities must be provided. Every
member of the board has declared tlwt he
would not vote for a site where the sup
piles could not be set out on the sidetrack
on the Institution grounds. Chairman Ham
ilton snld today that since he had come
to the board In May the state had spent
hundreds of dollars for demurruge chaws
for failure to unload cars where the freight
had to be hauled by t-oni sometimes as
far as five miles to the Institution.
o Fear of Democratic Control.
Fears that the demoorats will get con
trol of the next Iowa legislature are some
what subsiding sine1 th time hss been
taken to figure the' matter up. There are
108 members In the house and fifty In the
senate. The full membci-shlp of the houso
Is to be elected next 'November and twenty
two members of the setjate. .The democrats
have four, members ot.the senate who are
holding over. They had eight members In
the last senate 'and twenty-one members
In the last house. There are 136 members
of the house and senate to be elected in
November. On Joint roll call It will take
eighty to make a majority; in the next
legislature. The democrats have four sena
tors who hold over, and will therfore have
to elect seventy-six out of the llitj to be
elected. This will be fifty-one more than
they had In the last legislature on Joint
roll call. Even those who concede that
the democrats are likely to have more
members In the next legislature than in
the last do not claim that they can elect
as many as sev-enry-sfx out of the 136 to
be elected next month.
Big Shortage In Cars.
Every line that' rune through Iowa is
abort of cars. The report has been mado
to the railroad commission that they
cannot get the cars to move the grain
crop as fast as it Is being sffcrcd or
transportation. The other day Rtt-j
Railroad Commissioner N. S. Ketchum
made a trip over ths state with a num
ber of railroad officials and he kept them
in a sweat the biggest part of the time,
pointing out elevators to which the farm
ers were hauling grain, but by the slda
of which there were no boxcars to haul
1 the TPS away,
In despair, one official
told him they were 1.600 cars short In
their Iowa territory alone. Elevator men
all over the stats are making a "holler"
for cars and the complaints are coming
in to ths railroad commission. During
the summer Commissioner Ketchum made
an appeal to the people of the state
In behalf of the railroads to move sll
the freight that It was possible to move
then st a time when the cars were not In
use. and In order to relieve the pressure
when the grain began to move, but the
appeal did, seemingly, little good. Since
the grain started moving the car short
age has been growing worse.
, Comes l,ona- War tn Vnte.
Hon. P. L. Prentls of Vancouver, BrltUo
Columbia, will probably travel farther to
vote In November than any other votr
In Iowa. His home is In Mt. Ayr, la.,
and his friends have received word that
he Is coming home to vote. Mr. Prentls
is stationed at Vancouver In the Immigra
tion service. He is under the civil service
and so is excluded from active participa
tion in politics, but his republican loyalty
is such that he cannot stay away from
ths polls In November.
- Kenyon to Cbtmao,
Judge W. 8. Kenyon of Fort Dodge will
move to Chicago within a few weeks, and
there will then be removed from low i
one of Its strongest sttorneys and at unu
time one of its most conspicuous poli
ticians. The decision to remove to Chi
cago to live follows the sppolntment of
last week as general attorney of the Illi
nois Central, a promotion from the posi
tion of Iowa attorney. Judge Kenyon will
be succeeded In Iowa by Hon. Thoinaa D.
Healy of Fort Dodge. The position of
genersl attorney of the Illinois Central
was offered to Judge Kenyon some months
ago. Since that time more or less of hi
time has been spent in Chicago at ths
head offices In legal consultation.

A. L. Crick of this city, president of
the State Federation of Labor, declares
that the organizations that tried at the
last session of the legislature to get Tli

at work, and. furthermore, this time is
working for the defeat of members of the
