At the city hall yesterday It was ques
tioned whether the street railway company
could. In face of section 7 of the charter
granted the suburban company, under which
franchise It la supposed to be operating In
thla city, refuse transportation to certain
city officials. The section In question j
That as a further and additional consid
eration for the granting of the franchise.
It Is agreed that aald company shall trans
port, free of charge on Ita cara the mayor,

and all firemen and policemen of the reg
ular force when In uniform, on duty and
having In their possession Indices of their
respective offices, whenever such oftlcers
could, by law, collect the expense of auch
transportation from the city.
Then again, the question la raised whether
under the Iowa anti-pass law city offlclala
are not prohibited from accepting street
car transportation. It has been suggested
that possibly the matter may be compro
mised by the city offlclala entitled under
the suburban charter to street car trans
portation being Issued passes good only in

Harvey Neeley, the colored man charged
with slugging and robbing W. W. Carter,
an elderly white man of Bentley, la., was
discharged In police court yesterday morn

with the crime. The hearing, however, re
sulted rather disastrously for two witnesses
who testified, on behalf of Neeley. Carter
asserted that he waa slugged' and robbed
after he had been escorted by Neeley to
a negro resort near the Northwstern
tracks, which he refused to enter when he
learned Its character. John Ewlng and his
aon-ln-Iaw, Charles Stroma, white men, tes
tified that they bad gone to the resort that
Saturday night and had found Carter there
and that Carter was under the Influence
of liquor. Both the witnesses told prac

(From a Btnff Correspondent )
DES MOINES, Dec. 28. (Special.) A res
olution reported by the committee on reso
lutions of the State Teachers' association
favoring the simplified spelling was adopted
by the association today after It had rained
something of a storm, the only one of the :
morning. President McClaln of the State j
university attacked the new method and ,
called the committee that Is working for i
Its adoption a self-appointed committee.
President Seerley of the State Normal
school defended the committee and the i
.method, and the resolution was finally
adopted. The resolution reported by the
resolutions committee favoring changing
the time of the meeting of the association
to a date In October was laid on the table
for one year, because according to the con- i
stitutlon no action could be taken upon it j
at this time. Other resolutions reported j
by the committee asking the legislature to
make no changes In the new certificate law
for the space of two years; condemning I
high school fraternities; favoring state aid '
for high schools; favoring extension of the i
present facilities for training teachers, and '
favoring a commission to recodify the 1
school laws of the state, were all adopted !
as reported by the committee. I
A revolt was atarted among the young
men teachers irom the northern and west
ern part of the state today against the I
present system of electing officers and
managing the affairs of the association. It '
la contended by them that they have no I
voice In the affairs of the association, and
they will make a fight at the next conven
tion for a primary election of the officers
and demand that the unwritten law, that
the president shall come one year from
the county superintendents' section, the
next from the college section and the next
from the superintendents' and principals'
section shall be broken up, giving other
men a chance.
Officers Are Elected.
The nominating committee, soon after
midnight last night, met to consider the
selection of officers, the meeting being held
at that hour In order to be after all other
meetings are closed. The report thla morn

A feature of tnrlnv'. Mulnn warn tho on-
nual address of John F. Riggs, state super-
Intendont at public Instruction, in which he
made a strong plea for the appointment of
a commission to examine and revise and re
codify the school laws of the state. He
showed that twenty-five years ago a com
mission, of which Horace Mann and Amos
Dean were the lending spirits, revised the
school laws, and did their work well, but
that every general assembly since that
time had enacted new school laws which. In
many instances, were contradictory, and
many inmances, were conirauiciory, Hnu
.. . ...... I
that a few years ago the state laws wore I
, . . . , , , . .
recodified the school.laws were untouched.
In the first part of his address Prof. Rlcga
considered at some length the new state
teachers' certificate law and made a plea
for leaving the law unchanged till It ha 9
haB time for being; tested.
Railroads Mny Itednce Rates.
There Is a report current that the rail
roads may reduce the passenger f ires In,
the state to 2Mi cents voluntarily In the
hope of shutting oft the passage of a 2
cent fare bill. At the last sens on of the
legislature Representative Sankey, who. In-'
ttnduced a 2-cent fan bill, gave figures
from the railroad commissioners' report to
show that the railroads, with all their free
pasaes and half fares, receive now only j
about 2 cents a mile, and tTiat it Is the poor
man who paya the full 3 cents. Becnnse of .
1 Is 'act members of the leglsl lure are pre-
dieting that the railroads wli, not oppose ;
the ennctment of a 2-cent fare bill that will
cut off ministers' half fare permits und
force everyone to pay 2 cents. By the aims
course of reasoning they are arguing that
the railroads will not voluntarily reduce
fares to S cents, leaving In the half-fare
penults and other special rates.

Turner to Get Elections.
.... , , rot llautcn
Although Senator Warren Garst, neuten
, . .
ant governnr-elert, la very uncommunica
tlve concerning his committee appointments,
there is coming to be a settled conviction
that Senator Dan W. Turner of Adams
county will be chairman of the elections
committee. Turner since coming to his
I seut In the senate has been a close friend
' of Warren Garst and has stood with him
on practically every Important question
that has come up In the senate. When he
qame to the senate he was the youngest
member and Oarst the oldest, and there has
been a sort of father and son feeling be
tween them. Turner is a strong pro
gressive from a standpat district and mny
1 not be re-elected for that reason. If he
hae a strong committee it will be easier
' for him and the Impression Is that he will
get the elections committee and havo
i charge of the primary bill. So many of
the members, of the senate were mem
bers at the last session that the committee
selections are comparatively easy as com
pared with the problem In the house, where
the great majority are new members.

This is the first time any ofhrlal action
has bee n taken and sets at rest all question
us to the atand the United States would
take In case It became necessary for one
or more powers signatory to the Berlin
treaty to Intervene.
The agitation in England for some action
by that government under Its treaty obli
gations looking to reforms In the Congo
has been as great, If not greater, than
1n the United States, but England appar
1 1 ctly has been loath to act while there
was any prospect that Belgium would an
nex the Congo territory.
The matter was again before the State
'department today, when Dr. Howard
Ouinnes of England, head of "the regl ins
beyond missionary union, called upon
Secretary Root and urged Independent ac
tion by the United States, maintaining that
this country waa morally bound to act be
cause It was the first to recognize the flag
of the Congo Free State, it la not be
lieved, however, that anything in that di
rection will be done, certainly not until
action Is taken by the senate on the Lodge
resolution pledging the support of the aen
ata to any ateps by the United States
toward ameliorating the jondltlone in that
country. Mr. Ouinnes, however, left the
department with the assurances that the
government would not perrMt I'.self to be
