EIGHT-HOI R DAT FOR THE POLICF
Coanell to Be Asked to Make Pro-
The city council. It Is stated, will be
asked when making the appropriations In
March for the ensuing fiscal year to ri-rt-vlde
for four additional patrolmen, with a
view of placing the force, at least the
patrolmen, on a three shift basis of eight
hours each. This would require an addi
tional appropriation of about $3,500 for this
The police force at present consists of
the chief, one captain, two sergeants, an
emergency officer, four detectives, patrol
driver. Jailer, ten patrolmen and one deputy
city marshal. Four patrolmen are assigned
to day duty and six to night duty. Under
the present system they walk their beats
for twelve consecutive hours.
Major Richmond is of the opinion that
the efficiency of the force could be greatly
Increased under the three shift system.
Councllmen asked yesterday concerning
this proposition stated they would vote for
the extra appropriation should Major Rich
mond make such a recommendation to the
city council. The councllmen all conceded
that the present police force Is inadequate
for the site of the city."
The firemen are also agitating a change
and an Increase In their regular 'layoff."
At present each member of the department
gets twenty-four hours every two weeks.
Instead of this arrangement they Intend
asking for eighteen hours each week, the
layoff to be from noon until 6 a. m. of the
Such an arrangement, however, would
mean that every day of the week three
men In the department would be oft duty
from noon until 6 tho following morning.
This, it is believed, would cripple the de
partment, and It Is understood will not
meet with the approval of the councllmen.

A large sign bearing In big black letters
the Inscription "To the House of David,"
with an Immense hand pointing south,
nailed on a telephone pole at the corner
of Pierce and Frank streets yesterday At
tracted considerable attention from pedes
trians and passengers on the street cars.
By some It was supposed to be Intended
to call attention to a new house of worship
on Frank street or meeting place of some
religious sect. But very few knew the real
Import of the sign. Attorney David E.
Stuart and bride, nee Miss Dorothy Green,
who were married Christmas day In St.
Paul'a Episcopal church, arrived home yes
terday morning from their brief wedding
trip to Chicago and went to the new home
on Frank street, which Mr. Stuart hnd
built. Fellow members of the Bar associa

sponsible for the . big sign bearing the
legend "To the House of David." It is
presumed that Mr. Stuart on alighting
from the car at the corner of Pierce and

down, but hla friends had forestalled any
such action by placing It high above reach.

DBS MOINES, Dec 30-(Speclal.)-Charles
L. Marston, representative-elect from
Cerro Gordo county, will Introduce a bill
to limit the hours of employment of rail
road men at the coming session of the
legislature. The bill will be along the
lines as advocated fiy President Roosevelt
In a recent message to congress. At the
thirtieth general assembly Representative
English of Polk county Introduced such s
bill. It was known aa house file No. 364.
The bill passed the house, receiving sixty-
seven votes In Its favor, but in the senate
committee on labof, to which It went after
first going to the railroads' committee, the
railroad men made a showing In oppo
sition to it. A large number of railroad
employes were brought before the com
mittee to testify that they did not want
the bill, aa It would limit their possibili
ties of making bigger wages. On this show
ing the bill was reported for Indefinite
postponement and thus killed in the sen
ate. The bill by Marston will be one of
the first bills Introduced In the house. It
will be referred to the labor committee at
his request and he will give a principal
part of his time to working for fts pass
age. The purpose -of the bill will be to
limit the hours of a railroad employe's
work so that there will be no cases of
overworked employes with resulting In
creased liability to make mistakes to the
danger of the lives of the public.
Committee Appointments Next.
Beginning this ' Week Immediately after
New Year's day the Savery hotel lobby In
this city will swarm with legislators, the
swarm growing thicker with every day as
the opening day draws closer. And the all-
Important thing will be committee assign
ments. It Is generally conceded that the
senate committee assignments are easy as
compared with those In the house, for the
reason that there are forty committees
in the senate with but thirty-six repub
licans to be given chairmanships, while In
the house there are fifty-four committees
with seventy-five republicans to be satis
fled. Furthermore, fn the senate more than
half of the members were in the senate
the last two sessions and the usual rule
of promotion will settle the greater num
ber of the appointments as to chairmen
There will, of course, have to be some
careful figuring to have things come out
right as to political matters, but, on tho
whole, It Is easy as compared with the
house, where only about one-fourth of the
members were members at the last session.
It Is generally conceded that Senator
Dowell will retain thethalrmanshlp of the
Judiciary committer It has been- claimed
by some that Smith of Mitchell would have
ways and means and Maytag appropria
tions. But .Smith Is the ranking member
on appropriation and Maytag is next to
him. Neither were' members of the ways
and means committee at the last session.
The ways and means committee Is the
ranking committee In the Iowa legislature,
not because 1t hr 'first-In' Importance, tout
because It is In Congress,' where It handles
the tariff. It la really one of the mediocre
committees. This Is Smith's last session
of his second term and Maytag's first ses
sion nf his coni term. Tho appropria
tions committee Is much the more Impor
tant and the natural thing would be to
make Smith chairman of appropriations
for this term and leave Maytag the rank
ing member so that he could have the
chairmanship at the next session and give
htm the chairmanship of another commit
tee at this session. Both are bosom friends
of 8enator Garst, who,' as lieutenant gov
ernor, will appoint the committees, and it
Is known that Smith is very anxious to
be chairman of the appropriations com
The assignment of the committees is
more or less an Indication of who will lead
In legislation. F. M. Hopkins of Guthrie
will have the railroads committee, for
which he Is very anxious, and ranks next
to Smith of Mitchell, who will be promoted
to appropriations. Dunham will retain sup
pression of Intemperance. Whipple Insur-
I ance, Crossley schools, Bruce senatorial and
representative districts, Olllllland will suc
ceed to congressional and Judicial districts,
Jamison will retain constitutional amend
ments. Young of Calhoun public health,
EricMon public libraries, Btuckslager banks,
Jackson compensation of publlo officers,
Saunders penitentiaries and pardons,
Stookey publlo buildings and Eckles will
be promoted to agriculture. Turner will
probably have elections.
Over in the house It Is understood that
Weeks will have his choice of committees
and he will take judiciary. Weeks was
talked of for speaker. He assured Kendall
immediately at the close of the last session
that he would not be a candidate, but

Fight Against Sample Bottles.
The Iowa Anti-Saloon league has deter
mined to start prosecutions against the
liquor Interests who have been giving out
sample bottles of whisky In little bottles
shaped like an Infant's nursing bottle. The
league made an Investigation and discovered.
that the bottles were In the hands of a
large number of little children. The bottles
are labeled "Teddy's Pet." "Sweet Good
Night" and other appropriate labels for
such a bottle, and the league claims that
the bottles were not designed as advertise
ments for brands of whisky, but were pur
posely designed to be circulated among
school children and others, with the Inten
tion of creating a taste for liquor. In
vestigations are now being conducted with
a view to ascertaining who gave out the
samples. A large number of them appeared
a day or two before Christmas In this city.
