SETZ STARTS SOME TROUBLE
AjiI to Hsto BecMiidtred Award of
County Frintinar.
ALLEGES THE PRICE PAID IS TOO HIGH
Other Members of the Board Wroaghf
I p and the Session Proves a
Lively One, with More
to Cone.
I have Investigated and found that the
county printing can be done and county
supplies furnished at a price on the whole
of 25 per cent less than we are now paying
tne .'Nonpareil company, and I ask the
board to reconsider Its action snd adver
tise for bids and let the contract to the
lowest responsible bidder who will guaran
tee that the work will be done by parties
living in Council Bluffs and who can fur-
nlxh an approved bond. FELIX 8ETZ,
Chairman.
This communication, presented at the
meeting of the Board of County Super
visors yesterday, Incited the antagonism
of the other members, with the result that
both the morning and afternoon sessions
were anything but harmonious. In fact,
the proverbial dove of peace took wings
and flew out of the window and had not
returned when the board adjourned until
Monday to resume Its deliberations.
When the communication from Chairman
Sets, which was prompted by the criticism
of the action of the board In awarding the
contract for blank books and printed sup
plies to the New Nonpareil at the same
prices which had prevailed for several
years past without advertising for bids, as
the members had agreed to do this year,
was read by the clerk, the members looked
at one another and for a time there was
complete silence. Mr. Sets asked that the
communication be made of record and than
the storm broke loose.
Speneer Warms I'p.
Chairman Sets Intimated In more or less
plain language that' be had been advised
that certain members of the board had
been "consorting" with Manager Bender
of the Nonpareil company the night before
the session at which he was again awarded
the contract on the basis of last year's
prices. This Insinuation from the chair
man aroused the Ire of Supervisor Spencer,
chairman of the committee which Is said
to have Investigated the prices paid by
other counties for blank books, printed
matter and stationery supplies, and he
promptly declared "that It waa nobody's
d d business who he associated with while
he was In Council Bluffs."
More or less sultry language followed,
until finally the matter waa dropped for
the time being, only to be brought up
again by Chairman Seta when the board
reassembled after lunch. Calling Super
visor Bullls to the chair, Mr. Sets took
the floor and aaked the consent of the
board th'at his communication be entered
for record of the day's proceedings.
"I for one will not vote for this." snd
Colonel Raker. "I look upon the chair
man's communication, or whatever he calls
It, as nothing more or less than censure
of the board."
Falling to secure a second, Mr. Sets,
after stating that he felt that the board
was treating Its chairman In anything but
courteous manner, resumed his place at
the heHd of the board and the matter was
then dropped.
It was stated yesterday' that a certain
heavy taxpayer In Ihe county had an
nounced his determination to bring Injunc
tion proceedings to restrain the Board of
Supervisors from carrying out the con
tract with the Nonpareil company on the
alleged grounds that It was contrary to
public policy and will ask the court to order
the board to advertise for bias.
The balance of the session was spent in
allowing bllla. The board adjourned to
Monday.

ing on Ninth avenue and Seventh street,

the Great Western railroad. The structure,
which will be of brick and stone, will be
two stories and basement high, 60x136 feet.
The association expects to expend about
$20,000 on the new structure, and the needed
stock waa promptly subscribed at yester

000 over that for the previous year,
A 2 per cent dividend on the net sales
was ordered to the members of the asso
ciation who had shipped fruit.

ginning of 1906 was $1,936.64 and that the
receipts from stock and merchandise
handled by the association during the sea
son amounted to $86,304.68. The cash bal
ance on hand January 1, 1907, was $4,811.04,

District Attorneyship Becoming More
EnUneled with the Senatorship.
GOVERNOR CUMMINS ISSUES STATEMENT
Not a Candidate for Senator, bat
Woald Not Decline In Case Office
Was Tendered to Him Senate
Elects Officers.
(From a Staff Correspondent.) '
DES MOINES. Jan. U. (Special). M. J.
Tobin and Bernard Murphy, both of Vinton,
reached Des Moines this morning. Mr.
Tobin is and has been for two years a can
didate for United States attorney for the
northern district of Iowa and fo rsome
time it haa been considered that he was
as good as appointed and would be acr
tually appointed as soon as the Iowa dele
gation met in Washington to caucus. The
efforts of D. C. Chase of Webster City and
his friends In circulating petitions among
the members of the legislature the past day
or two asking Dolllver to nppolnt Chase
brought Tobin and Murphy to Des Moines
In a hurry. Both Tobin and Murphy stated
at once that they would not circulate any
petitions with the members of the leglxlu-
ture. They and the friends of Tobin crit
icise the action of the Chase men as stir
ring up factionalism In the legislature
which will meet Monday. Tobin became a
candidate for the position of northern dis
trict attorney over two years ago when
H. O. McMillan announced that he would
not be a candidate for the position. Tobln's
friends now claim that Chase withdrew
from the race lost year when he came out
as a candidate for state senator. Chase
today has the endorsement not only of all
the legislators from his own congressional
district, the Tenth, but haa all but one of
the progressive legislators from the Fourth
and claims he will have all from the Elev
enth and Third. He also has three from
the Fifth district, Tobln's district, two of
them Senator Eckles and Representative
Arney being from Marshall county and
Representative Lister being from -Grundy
county.
Undoubtedly Governor Cummins would
rather not be elected at this session of the
legislature to succeed Dolllver. The elec
tion has been conceded to Dolllver by
all factions, and if Cummins were to be
elected now the public could hardly be
persuaded but that there was a trick of
some kind. About the hotel lobbies there
Is talk that If Dolllver refuses to promise
Ms support to Chase for district attorney
and Cummins refuses the election to the
senate the Chase men will throw their
strength to "Tama" James Wilson, secre
tary of the Department pf' Agriculture at

Washington, and will endeavor to get
enough of the opposition to Dolllver to
gether to elect Secretary Wilson to the
senate. At the same time the friends of
Tobin are charging that Oovernpr Cum
mins Is In fact a receptive candidate for
the position of senator of the United
States and that at a conference at his
home on West Grand avenue last Sunday
he consented to take the position it it
were given lilm.
A great many unconfirmed rumors are
floating about the hotels and one of these
ta that a conference of standpat senators
was held at the Savery last night, men
who are opposed to Dolllver, and that the
results of the conference waa an agree
ment to vote for. Governor Cummins for
senator an ytime that the progressive
Show enpugh votes which, combined with
these standpatters, would elect Cummins.
If Dolllver shows a stiff back when he
reaches the city the Chase men will un
doubtedly endeavor to cause him trouble.
If he agrees to support Chase he will
probably be re-elected senator, as the
Chose irlends are progressives ana mer
progressives are In the majority. If ha re
fugee to support Chase It will become a
questlpn of what strength the Chase men
can muster In an attempt to defeat Dolll
ver. ,
In an authorized statement Governor
Cummins donled persistent rumors that he
and his friends expected to make a fight
on Dolllver for re-election to the United
States senate. He says: "I am not a can
didate for election to the United States
senate by the thirty-second general as
sembly. I shall not be a candidate.. I
shall npt do anything whatever to further
or encourage any proposition looking to
my electon by this general assembly; but
there Is one thing that I shall not say,
that Is, that I would refuse the honor If
It was offered me by the legislature."
Democrats to Canons.
Democratic leaders of the house and sen
ate have decided upon holding a cauctis at
which it Is likely a candidate for United
States senator will be named to be given
a complimentary vote. It will probably be
General James B. Weaver.
