The directors of the Omsha A Council
Bluffs Street Railway company may deem
It advisable to grant a straight s-cent fare
between Council Bluffs and Omaha but
the rrospects are not of the brightest.
The committee from this city which
waited upon General Manager W. A. Smith
yesterday did not receive any encourage
ment from that official, but on the con
trary Mr. Bmlth told the committee in
plain, hard, Cbld words that "the reductlou
of the fare between the two cities was an
utter Impossibility." At the same time
Mr. Smith was very candid In his avowal
that he would not recommend to the di
rectors the reduced fare asksd for.
The committee, despite the cold wste
thrown on Its mission by General Man
ager Smith, decided to present the mattei
to the directors of the company and left
for presentation to them the following pe

provement club, the Commercial cluo and
the city council of the city of Council
stiffs by their committees duly ap
pointed, and the city of Council Biuffs at
large by a committee appointed by the
mayor, under a resolution passed at s
mass meeting of the cltlsens thereof,
hereby request that an unlimited 6-cent
fare be made over the lines of your street
railway company between any point In the
city of Council Bluffs and sny point In the
city of Omaha, as is now in force between
the city of Omaha and the city of South
Omaha Believing that such an action on
your part would be for the mutual benefit
or the cities Interested ana or your com
pany in increase of revenue and removal
of a present discrimination against th"
city of Council Bluffs, w respectfully ask
tne careful. lair and favorable conaiaera-
tlon of this request.
Pleasant, bnt Hot Receptive.
"The committee was most courteously re
ceived by General Manager Smith, and he
listened to the arguments presented by It
with evident, Interest, but be was perfectly
candid In Ws statement that he dltt not for
one moment anticipate that the directors at
their meeting next Monday would favorably
consider the' proposition of the 6-cent fare
between the two cities.
Postmaster A. 8. Haielton .and forme
Mayor M. F. Rohrer presented the matter
to Mr; Smith on -behalf of the committee.
Mr. Hazel ton. In his argument, tock the po
sition that Council Bluffs, Omaha and South
Omaha ought to be considered by the street
railway company as one city. The cltlsens
of Council Bluffs, he said, considered they
were being discriminated against in the
matter of street car fares and felt that they
ought to be accorded at least the same fa
vors granted the citizens of South Omaha.
Mr.. Rohrer urged a reduction of the
bridge tolls both for pedestrians and vehi
cles and took advantage of the opportunity
to call attention to the need of better serv
ice during-the evening hours when residents
of Council Bluffs are returning from their
employment kv. Omaha. - The service. . he
contended, was Inadequate during these
hours and the cars were In consequence un
General Manager Smith, In support of his
position, that a 6-cent fare between the two
cities was not to be considered, stated that
the cost of maintaining the bridge over the
Missouri river and the line between Coun
cil Bluffs and Omaha was "enormous." A
6-cent fare, he argued, would mean the cut
ting In two of the revenues of the oompany
on this line, and ha gave it as his opinion
that the possible Increase in travel over the
line would not materially make up the loss.
Mr. Smith further told the eommittee that
the company was at present planning re
pairs on the bridge and the construction of
a new span at the east end which would
oost in the neighborhood of (SO, 000 to 1100,-
000, and with this expendltnre In sight It
was not likely, in his opinion, that the di
rectors would see their way to cutting the
Tare between the two cities in half. Con
cluding, Mr. Bmlth said: "I am confident
that the directors will not for a moment
consider the proposition and will regard it
as I do, -an, utter Impossibility."
Appeal te Commerce Commission.
The committee, 'it Is understood, will
await the meeting of the directors of the
street railway company, when, if the re
quest for the reduced fare is turned down,
it will appeal to the Interstate Commerce
commission, as directed by the resolution
which prevailed at the mass meeting in the
city hall last week. While the Interstate
Commerce commission will be appealed to,
the opinion Is that this body lacks Jurisdic
tion over street railways and that it will be
powerless to Interfere in the matter. If this
proves to be the case, there Is talk of at
tacking the right of the street railway
company to operate In Council Bluffs, it be
ing alleged that it has no franchise in this

It required forenoon and afterneon ses
sions to complete the deliberations of the
ihlrty-flrst annual meeting of the South
western Iowa Horticultural society yes
terday instead of a morning session as had
been planned. The treatment accorded the
society by the people of Council Bluffs
not only prompted it to select this city
as the place for holding next year's meet
ing, but elicited the following resolutions:
Whereas, This society has Just com

The society also adopted a resolution In
dorsing the proposition to establish a cold

teeing its support and patronage at the
earliest opportunity It 18 possible to do so.
An Interesting feature of the closing ses
sions was the talks of H. W. Colllngwood
-f New York, editor of the Rural Now
Yorker, who spoke at both the morning
and afternoon meetings. Mr. Colllngwood
was on ths program for' the opening day,
but could not reach here until yesterday.
He did not confine himself to any special
subject' In either of his addresses, but
touched on a number of matters of Interest
to the fruit grower in general and those in
the west especially. He said among other
things that the fruit growers of the west
do not make a sufficient effort to create a
market. People should be made to realise
that apples are a necessity, and not a
luxury. Consumption of fruit, as In other
things. Is increased by educating people to
the need of it. He told of the methods
of orcharding and gardening in ths east.
which were materially different to those
of the west. In his state the fruit grower
produced for the local market and did not
export. Now the eastern fruit grower had
to contend with those from the west, who
were invading his market. The only way
they in the east could compete with the
west was by raising special fruit, which
would of necessity bring a greater prire
than that shipped in from the west. Eight
thousand Italian fruit stand owners ha
created, he said, a great demand for th'
Ben Davis apple in New York on account
, of Its color, making It a. popular seller.
This peculiar demand for one special kind
hurt the market to a considerable extent
on the other varieties.
Prof. H. P. Baker of the State Agricul
tural college at Ames discussed "Iowa's
Fence Post Problem." The only solution,
he said, was to continue the use of the
wooden post, and be believed every farmer
and fruit grower ought to be able to raise
ymber sufficient to produce all the posts
neeaea ror nis lana. ana it ns aia mis ns
believed that the (10.000,000 or more sent
out of Iowa every seven or eight years for
posts could be kept at home. Waste land,
he suggested, could be utilised with good
profit for raising timber such as would be
suited for posts.

The report says that the revision Is urg- i
ently needed, as many of the laws are
contradictory. Prof. Rlggs then proceeds
to recommend the most radical legislation
that has yet been recommended to sny '
legislature relating to school laws. He ad- '
vises a state levy of half a mill for the aid
of the schools, and would apportion the
Interest on the school funds, not on basis
of the number of persons between the ages
of 6 and Jl In the district, but with rela
tion to the number of months school Is
maintained, the wages paid the teachers
and the average dally attendance In the
district. The interest on the school fund
smounts to 2.3 per cent of the totsl raised
for school purposes and the county tax to
5.2 per cent, leaving M.5 per cent to he
raised by local taxts. Prof Rlggs main
tains that some districts, through false

One of the most radical recommendations
le -that the office of school treasurer be
abolished. Figures are given to show that
the funds In the hands of the 4.984 school
treasurers of the state on the third Mon

to $5,408,294. He argues that this amount

the close of the school year Is for no good
purpose. Is entirely unnecessary and is
accumulating ths money of the taxpayer
uselessly and makes the election of the
school treasurer a matter of greater Im

He would abolish the office at once and

Mrs. Jennie Huegle of this city, who
failed to pass the slate examination for
teachers In October, but was subsequently
elected county superintendent of schools of
this county, will seek the aid of the courts
to secure the position to which she has been
elected. Mrs. Huegle ia without a state cer
tificate, as required by the law, and so. It
Is asserted, cannot qualify for the poaltlon.
Mrs. Huegle has employed Judge George H.
Carr as her attorney. He asserts thst the
law gives the supervisors authority to pass
upon the sufficiency of her bond, but is
silent as to the supervisors passing on her
certificate or other qualifications, and hence
that she wllK take the position. It Is be
lieved that an injunction will be asked by
other persons to restrain her from taking
th position. Mrs. Huegle's attorney aiso
attacks the new certificate law and claims
that If Mrs. Huegle Is excluded from taking
the position to which she hss been elected
a large number of other county supenn-
tendents-elect must be excluded also.

TRADEMARKS JM OLD SILVER
Imparlance of Their lie In Deter
mining Age and Genuineness
e( the Ware.
Every mark on your old sliver meens
something, and If you care to be sure
about Its age or maker a study of these
marks and the system is essential.
A record hss been kept at Goldsmiths'
hall, London, for five centuries of all an
nual date letters and of the1 registered sil
versmiths and their private msrks.
In 1337 King Edward III granted a char
ter to the Goldsmiths' guild. During the
reign of Edward IV the Goldsmiths' com
pany of London, as It came to be known,
invented and put Into practice an alpha
betical system of marks, changing each
year. There were similar codes in the pro
vincial assay offices.
This system is one of the few bequests
of the middle ages, which have stood the
test of time practically without change.
By the provisions of this system we bsve
not only a lasting Index by which to Judge
the tge of gold and silver, but ws have
a guarantee of genuineness.
Neither the date marks nor maker's
marks are hall marks, properly speaking,
though all marks on silver are commonly
referred to as hall marks. The true hall
marks are the leopard and the lion. The
leopard's head was used, first, from 1SJ0,
and In 156 a Hon passant was added.
These marks were punched into the metal
with a die, the animal appearing in a shield
or oblong field.
Until 1&S0 a small crown appeared over
the Hon; from 1&7 to 1&0 the puncheon
followed the outline of the lion's body;
after that the lion appeared on an oblong
These various forms of the hall mark

sometimes helpful In determining the age
of a piece of silver when the date mark
The date letter or year mark system
seems to have been definitely settled about
1518, for, although there was an alpha
betical system more than fifty years before.
It Is customary to go back to Hit as an
accurate starting point.
Charles II rsised the standard of the
metal, and In 1S& the new quality was
given a new mark Britannia, sitting in an
oblong puncheon, with a lion's ' head,
eised. Ths standard was found to be too
svtt for practical purposes, howevsr, and
In 173) there wss a return to the old and
present standard of metal, with the leop
ard's head and lion passant. Naturally,
these Britannia pieces are rare.
Makers began to use their private marks
about wB. At first they used ths first
two letters of ths surname; about 1733 the
Initials were substituted.
For example, prior to this dats Paul
Lamerle s mark was La; afterward It be
came P. L.

snd maker s mark. In 17M the sovereign'
head was added-the governmental cus
toms mark-maktns five punches In all.
There were changes made from time to
time In the fixed iiall marks, which are
worth noting. For example, the leopard's
head was set in a puncheon following It
outlines until luTS, when it began to ap
pear In a symmetrical shield of five sides.
In 1696 the head was reduced somewhat
In slse. In 170 the leopsrd lost his bsard
and his shield became oblong, and In
his crown was taken sway from him.
These were all London maika There
were. In addition, provincial marks. The
Edinburgh hall mark dales from 1457. It
was a triple turreled castle or tower! The
standard mark was a thistle, which wss
substituted for the sssay master s Initials
in 1,57. The date letter cycles began In
Edinburgh In 1GS1.
Glasgow had a curious emblem a tree
with a bird in the top, a bell hanging from
one branch and a fish across the trunk,
stamped In an oval puncheon. The Shef
field and Birmingham hall marks were a
crown and an snchor, respectively, with
the lion passant aa the standard mark.
Dublin had a crowned harp. Other spe
cial marks were long used In Chester, New
castle and many Scottish towns. Familiar
ity with these provincial marks will often
prevent confusion In studying old silver.
Now to go back to the subject of date
mark a I canot do more than barely Indi
cate what there Is in the subject for
those who wish to go Into It seriously.
Different cities or halls had different year
marks. I will deal only with the London
marks, as being by far the most Important,
Each year had assigned to It a letter of
the alphabet, which was stamped on every
piece of silver msde or sold in London
that year. When the alphabet was used
up they went back to A again, taking usu
ally a slightly different form of letter.
These alphabets stopped at the letter U,
so that each of these cycles Is an even
twenty years in length.
One way of counterfeiting old silver is
to make a perfect copy of an old piece
In some alloy and give It a thick costing
of silver by the modern electroplate process.
Such counterfeits sre treated skillfully,
hall marks snd all being reproduced.
On the bottom or inside of the piece may
sometimes be found the granulated or crys
tal lied surface left by this process, though
these sre usually tooled over if In sight.
Sometimes English hall marks havs been
cut from a spoon or other small article
of great age and transferred to a larger
piece of more modern make. Country Lift -in
