WORK OF CODIFYING SCHOOL LAWS
State Superintendent Rtggs Objects lo
Plan of Legislative Committees
to Do Work Darlasj
(From a Btaft Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, Jan. 6. (Special.) Several
new officials of the state government will
take their oath of office tomorrow morning
and be given the reins of government. Two
new members will come to the executive
council In place of two whose terms expire
tonight at midnight. The custom of the
old officials appealing at their offices to
assist the new men In getting started will
be followed tomorrow.
Just half of the members of the execu
tive council go off that body and two new
men come on. Secretary of State W. B.
Martin and State Treasurer Gllbertson be
come private citizens when the sun rises
tomorrow, and Senator W. C. Hay ward
becomes secretary of state, and W. W.
Morrow becomes state treasurer. The ex
ecutive council, with Its present day duties
is one of the most Important parts of the
state machinery. The executive council not
only fixes the assessment of the railroads,
telegraph, telephone and expres. company
properties, but It attends to' an endless
amount of detail work during the course of
a year, approving expense accounts, pur
chasing supplies for the state house, pass
ing upon appointments, and ha charge of
the construction of the historical build
ing. In addition to these two changes In the
executive council there Is a change In the
office of attorney general. Charles W.
Mullen, who haa served two terms as at
torney general, will return to Waterloo td
continue his practice of law, and W. H.
Byers of Harlan becomes attorney general.
Mr. Byers will also have a new assistant,
Mr. C. W. Lyon of Valley Junction, taking
the place of Lawrence DeGraff, who has
been elected county attorney of Polk
Still another change will take place In
the office of the railroad commission, Mr.
Wllllard L. Eaton of Osage coming to the
commission, to take the place of E. A.
Dawson of Waverly.
It Is notable that there are to be very
few' changes In the office forces. There
will be a shifting of employes to new po
sitions In the office of the secretary of
state, but only one new employe comes to
the force. In the state treasurer's office
the deputy remains, and most of the office
force. In the Railroad commission office
only one change will be made and that a
stenographer. In the attorney general'
office one stenographer, who was not an ap
plicant for reappointment, will be displaced.
In every office In the state house where
the election makes changes there will be
former employes, continued, so that there
need not be the slightest break In the
state's business, the greatest change being
In the office of attorney general, where
the assistant and one stenographer, with
the attorney general himself, are new.
New Officials Arrive. .
Secretary of State Hayward and State
Treasurer Morrow , have already moved
their families to this olty and have become
part of the clty iof -Des Moines. Attorney
General Byers wiHotxmtlnua to reside in
Harlan, and Railroad Commissioner Eaton
will continue to reside In Osage. Both of
these gentlemen are lawyers aad have prac
tices In their home towns. They do not de
sire to lose their regular practice and their
duties at Des Moines do not necessitate
thl. Mr. Eaton will, be the lawyer member
of the Railroad commission and probably
will do the greater part of his work at hi
law office In Osage, following the custom
of Mr. Dawson. It haa been the custom In
the past to refer all legal questions to the
lawyer member for Investigation. . .
Of the retiring members of the official
family in this olty, Treasurer Gllbertson
will for the present continue to reside In
Des Moines and devote his time and at
tention to his land business. Secretary
Martin will continue to reside here for the
present and devote his attention to his
banking Interests. It is not certain that
either of these men will continue to reside
here permanently. . .'
Daniel A. Hltes, who vacates the posi
tion of deputy secretary of state, will for
the present continue to reside In Des
Moines. Mr. Hites is a candidate for a
legislative position with chances of suc
cess and following the legislative session
will take up some other work not fully
determined upon yet. Mr. Hites has been
an employe In the office of the secretary of
state for many years, holding the posi
tion of a clerk before he became deputy.
Governor Cummins and Lieutenant Gov
ernor Garst do not take their positions till
January 17, when the inauguration Is held.
Rlfrg-s Is Skeptical. .
John F. Rlggs, state superintendent of
public Instruction, does not take kindly
to the idea that the legislative committees
on schools will be able to do the work of
revising, rewriting and codifying the school
laws of the state during the coming session
of the legislature. Prof. Rlggs Is satisfied
the makeup of the committees as they
were at the last two sessions of the legis
lature include men thoroughly capable of
doing the work, but he does not believe
they will have time In connection with their
other legislative work aa contemplated by
Senator J. J. Crossley.
There Is no doubt now but that Senator
Crossley will be chairman of the commit
tee on schools In the senate, the position
he held In the Thirtieth and Thirty-first
sessions. Senator Crossley believes the
state could be saved the expense of a spe
cial commission to revise and recodify the
school laws In accordance with the recom
mendations of Superintendent Rlggs by tha
reappointment of the old .committees on
schools. These committees served through
two sessions of the legislature and he be
lieves are thoroughly familiar with all the
laws and the work that should be done.
Fate of Small Creameries.
The fate of the little creameries of Iowa,
the cream supply of which Is all hauled to
the creamery In wagons. Is the question at
Issue between H. R. Wright, state .dairy
commissioner, and the members of the Iowa
railroad commission. Theae small cream
eries manufacture 74.OOO.0uO pounds of but
ter a year which Is 76 per cent of the en
tire product of the state. The hearing a
few daya ago was an Informal hearing.
No legal notice of the hearing waa sent
out and consequently on that hearing the
board can take no legal action. Today the
new member of the commission, Wllllard L.
Eaton of Osage cornea to the board.
There la a certain fixed cost of transpor
tation which makes the freight rate for the
first fow milea greater In proportion than
for each mile after th first few. . Thus
for Ave miles the railroads now charge 19
cents for hauling a 100 pound can of cream.
For 30 miles It Is 20 cents, for SO mile fl
cents. For 60 miles 23 cents and for each
five miles after that the Increase Is I
cent. The effort that Is being made by the
Beatrice Creamery company la to get a
reduction of the rate above 30 miles.
Dairy Commissioner Wright contends that
to reduce th rate abov 30 mile will only
assist the big creameries to drive out the
little onca, 360 of which have already shut
If the railroad commission takes any ac
tion In the matter It will probably be to In
sist that Ita freight rates be adhered to
even though the business Is all carried on
passenger trains. The rates fixed by the
commission are the second class freight
rates. These rates are 11. cents for a ion
pound can of cream for five milea. The
rate Increases a little less than 1 cent
for each five miles above that to 300. For
25 miles the rate Is 14.46 cents; for 50 miles
17 cents; for AO miles 17.68 cents; 80 miles
19.04 cents; 2n0 miles 80.2 cents. The position
taken by Mr. Ketchum Is that the rate
having been fixed by the board should be
adhered to by the railroads. The difference
between the rate for five miles Is less than
8 cents, the railroads now charging
19 cents and the rate fixed by the board
being 11.9 cents. For a 200 mile haul the
difference Is nearly 30 cents, the railroads
now charging 50 cents and the rate fixed
by the board being 30.2 cents. I
The business now, however, is all carried
on express trains and passenger trains
either as express or baggage. There is a
question whether or not the commission
can enforce a rate for passenger trains that
has been fixed to apply to freight trans
portation. Traveling- Men Prosper.
The annual report of the secretary of the
Iowa State Traveling Men's association
shows that the organisation In the year
past haa gained In membership 2.622, the
membership January 1, 1907, being 2fi.S96.
The association ha an Increase of $40,235.83
In the amount of cash on hand. The claims

If wa could see and treat all men when the first symptoms
how themselves there would soon be little need of so-called
specialists In chronic diseases, and there would be few. men
seeking a rejuvenation of their physical and mental powers,
and there Would also be a few sufferers from Nervous Debil
ity, Blood Poison, Rectal, Kidney and Bladder Diseases and
their complications. But as long aa man continue to disregard
the golden adage, "A stitch In time saves nine," and continue
to neglect themselves, or exercise Indifference or poor Judg
ment In securing the right treatment at the outset, Just so
long will there ba multitude of chronlo sufferers.
You should carefully avoid all uncertain, experimental, dan
gerous or half-way treatments, for upon the success of the first
treatment depends whether you will be promptly restored to
health again, with all taint of the poisonous disease removed
from your system, or whether It will be allowed to heyim
chronic and subject you to future recurrence of the disease,
with the various resulting complications. .
