' Reopenlnsj of Bloomer School.
The Bloomer school has been closed for
one week on account of the principal. Miss
Hardin, and two or three of the pupils
being attacked with diphtheria. While
closed the building has been thoroughly
fumigated and disinfected and the school
authorities believe there will be no danger
In opening the school today.
Superintend? nt Clifford stated yesterday
that everything possible had been done
during the week the school had been closed
to give It a most thorough disinfecting, and
after a conference with the health au
thorities. It had been decided that there
would bo no danger In reopening the school
Miss Hardin was reported yesterday to
be nearly convalescent, and as far as was
known there were no new cases of the
dread disease among the children attend
ing this school. The last case reported
was that of the little daughter of Rev.
and Mrs. Marcus P. McClure, pastor of
the First Presbyterian church, which de
veloped Saturday. There Is nothing to
Indicate that there Is sny spidemlc of

Etport on Municipal Cwnsd Fluti of
RAILROADS FAIL TO KELP UP TO DATE
Traffic- Increases More Rapidly Than
Equipment to Handle It Is Iro-
Idrrt t loslnn- In ( am
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Di:S MOINES, Nov. 4. (8pccial.) Be
cause of Its being one of the first Impartial
and absolute authentic reports on the con
dition of a municipal plant the report cf
the Inspectors on the accounts of the city
of Atlantic Is considered by students of
municipal affairs one of the most Im
portant. The city of Atlantic owns both
its water works and electric light plants
und there 'is agitation at this time tn the
city lor the rale of the electric light plant.
The matter must be submitted to a vote
of the people before the plant can be sold
ami the sale Involves with It the letting
of a franchise to an electric railway. The
figures tiled with the state auditor by the
Inspectors of city accounts for both the
a4r'' works and electric light plants cover
a period from April 15. 10H,to September
-5. 1!"". In the case of the electric light
plant the receipts from consumers were
!tKK,itT.33 for the live and a half years, and
the espeniliturcs were jni.TKl.ai. less $:;,flixt,
which was illegally transferred to the water
woiks fund to help pay for the water works
plant. The street lighting, which had cost
the city a month, or J.'1oO a year, under
the municipal ownership of the plant cost
the city but $:!.ra4.3a for five years and a
half. During that period, however, there
was pnid into the treasury from an clectrlo
light tax the sum of i;,t0".34. but the fund
has $!.ts:'."t In cash on hand, which with
the $o,(iii0 Illegally transferred, would make
$12.4S2.24, showing that the plant could
operate and pay all expenses without tax
ation. Tho Knowing should even be better

! provements in tne plant, wnicn snouiu us

! September 23, lSoS. as 3 307.24, which sum
I came entirely from supplying consumers
J with water and making connections and
j the like. The expenditures during the same
period were $49,(2.0i, showing a clear gain,
the plant being operated at a profit and
the city getting Us own water for the fire
hydrants and public buildings free.
o Actlou on Trusts.
It Is probable that no action will be taken
against the trusts by Attorney General
Mullen. His term lasts but two months
more and the time between now and the
close of his term Is hardly sufficient to
begin any litigation such as that would
the. Furthermore, the evidence taken In
the groin hearing In thla city recently that
might give him some Information for pro
ceeding against the-Grain trust cannot be
had unless congress should vote an appro
priation and order the work printed.
Railroads Don't Keep I p.
With the exception of one or two small
matters the railroads have fallen far short
of keeptng their equipment up to the con
dition of the' freight business, according
to tiie report of the Iowa Railroad com
mission that has Just been made public.
The tonnage, according to this report, has
been shipped over the railroads that trav
erse Iowa amounted to 172 per cent more
than It did back In 189i. fifteen years ago.
On the other hand, the number of box
cars available on the same lines for ship
ment of grain and the produce of he farm
amounted to but 131 per cent, and freight
engines 119 per cent. The total number of
box cars, coal cars, flat cars, stock cars'
and the llkt'. Including all cars for ship
ping freight, has Increased in the saino
period of years but 144 per cent. Increase
In the sire of cars and the power of the
locomotives would, of course, make con
Rivalry for Banners.
A stiff competition Is likely to ensue for
the Tippecanoe banner and flag that Is
given each election to the county making
the greatest republican gain and to the
county making the greatest republican
vote. At the last general election tne com
petition was so close that It was somo
days after the election before the matter
could be determined and the banner and
flag awarded. With tho recurrence of the
custom of the Tippecanoe club to give this
banner and Hag interest Is beginning to
center In the occasion. It la made a sort
or rcpubllcini jollification following the
election, and prominent men of the party
aro CBlled in from over the state to de
liver the addresses of presentation of the
trophies to the counties winning them.
Tho Tippecanoe club has for the past two
or thtco weeks been Into the campaign

After the Violators.
The secretary of state Is out af:er the
violators of the automobile registering law.
He has r.o funds with which to h.int up
llio violators other than to draw on the
contingent expense fund for stamps to
wtllc letters over the state, but In that
manner lie ahs been anle to ferret out
any number cf violators. The public Is
conMi.ually misunderstanding the law,
which provokes and bothers the secretary
cf slate's office. The law requires that
automobiles must be regisured, and when
registered the secretary nf state supplies
the machine with a number, which must
Ik? hung from the tear. If the machine Is
old the number still stsys with It. but
the new owner must reregister It. Many
automobillsts do not do this. Some think,
havlr.g bought the uumber with the ma
chine, there Is nothing to be done. Other
auloiiK bilista when they aell a machine
J hike off the number and attarh It to the

other to lose.
Theodore Roosevelt Is the great, saving
asset of the republican party, because be
is rightly held by the nation to be h scorner
of consequence. Roosevelt Is greatest when
he Is himself, his daring und achieving"
self, when slinking off the trammels, of
party alliance, he dares to follow right;
