MOKE PAVING ON BROADWAY
tinoll Orden Work Completed to End of
j the Motor Bridge.
NOT ALL LIKELY 10 BE ACCOMPLISHED
City Clerk Ordered X Advertise for
Bids for Fire tteasirr Paasi
Which May He I sed to
Several blocks more on lower Broadway
mill be paved this year, but Just how many
will depend on the condition of the general
Improvement fund and other funds that
the city may and hopes to secure from
outside sources for this purpose. The ques
tion of the paving of Broadway came up
at the meeting of the city council lost
night In connection with the resolution for
the paving of a number of. streets and
avenues. While on motion of Councilman
Bmlth, supported by Councilman Hendrlx
of the Sixth ward, It was "ordered" that
Broadway be paved from Twentieth stre?t
to the approach to the motor bridge, tho
council has little, If any. expectation of
Improving that much this yeap As a
starter bids will be asked or the paving
of eight blocks and If funds are available
additional blocks will be improved. Last
year the thoroughfare was paved from
Thirteenth street to Twentieth.
From statements made by Councllmen
Maloney and Wallace, It appears that the
fund of $4,000 which remained after the
street fair and carnival last year may be
donated by the Commercial club to assist
In the expense of paving Broadway. It
was also suggested by Councilman Maloney
and Contractor Wlckham that possibly
soma money fcr this purpose mlsht be ob
tained from the hauling companies and
wholesale firms on both sides of the river,
who use Broadway for hauling goods to
and from tire two cities.
Another plan suggested to raise funds for
the paving was for the city to sell at a
small price the large number of lots It
owns on Broadway, tne purchaser to agre
.o ptand the assessment for the paving up
'o a certain . amount. These lots came
nto possession of the city when the
ormer owners- failed to pay the assess
nent for the old cedar block paving on
Streets to Be Paved,
A meeting of the committee of the whole
will be held Friday evening at which
time an effort will be made to secure the
attendance of the members of the execu
tive committee cf the Commercial club
and the carnival company with a view of
ascertaining what financial assistance to
wards the paving of Broadway can be ob
tained from that source.
The streets named in the paving resolu
tion, on which final action will be taken
February 25, are as follows:
First street from Washington avenue
to Its north terminus, Nicholas street from
Broadway to north line of Belden's sub
division. Bloomer street from First street
to Damon street, Perrln avenue from Frank
street to easterly terminus, Thomas street
from Pierce street to Broadway, Avenue A
from Eighth street to Northwestern tracks.
Ninth street from Broadway to Avenue B,
Tenth street from Broadway to Avenue B,
Heventn street from Washington avenue to

street to Clinton street.

At the suggestion of Chalman Ynunker
man of the committee on fire and light
the city clerk waa Instructed to advertise
for bids for a "first-class steamer" as an
adjunct to the equipment of the fire de
partment. Regarding the question of funds
with which to purchase a steamer and to
maintain It, the finance committee made
the following report last night:
If the revenues are allowed to be kept up
for the balance of the fiscal year In the
same proportion they have been for the
last nine months, It Is possible there will
be by April 1 (5,000 available for this pur
pose. As to the ability of the city to main
tain said steamer after same is purchased.

Even under these condl -
lions It would be very close work
Councilman Wallace Called attention to
tho fact that notwithstanding the passage
by the city council of an ordinance re
quiring the construction of an overhead
crossing over the ' tracks of the Oreat
Western railroad at Woodbury avenue, the
railroad had as yet made no move to
comply with the order of th council. Dis
cussion developed the fact that Is waa
doubtful whether the Great Western rail
road offlctuls had been formally notified
of the passage of the ordinance. Mr. Wal
lace stated that while In De Moines at
tending the Inauguration of Governor Cum
mins he had improved the opportunity to
call upon the railroad commissioners and
that they had told him a copy of the ordi
nance should be filed with them. As City
Solicitor Kimball 1 going to De Molnea
this week be was Instructed to take a copy
of the ordinance and ether data and present
same to the commissioner.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Jan. 28. -(Special.) Two
primary election bills, the Crossley bill
and the Peterson bill are now printed and
in possession of the members of both
houses of the legislature "and these will
form the basis upon whloh the elections
committees In both house will work and
from which a primary election law for Iowa
will be drawn. The printing of the Peter
son bill was completed and the bill laid
upon the desk of the members today
Some time this week the committees In
both houses will meet and begin work.
There la reported to be in preparation a
rtpmotTRtl.' orimaiy election bill, but the
committees will not wait for this.
Vital differences exist between the Peter
son and Crossley primary election bill.
Both provide for direct plurality selection;
each fixe a dat upon which th primary
of all parties are held In th same place;
each provides for state conventions only
for the purpose of drawing up platforms
though the Crossley bill also provides for
rmintv and district conventions for tho
same purpose; each provide for th can
dldntes names to be placed on the ballots
alphabetically; each bill provides for the
selection of party precinct committeemen;
tat:h provides for a declaration of party
aiflllatlon, and each provides for punish
ment of offenders against the law.
Here the likenesses cease and the differ
enres begin. The bills provide for direct
orlmary nomination of all candidates for
whom the people vote at the general elec
tion and for United States senators, but the
Crossley bill also provides for primary
selection of presidential electors. A politi
cal part is defined by Senator Crossley
as "any political organisation which muln
tains a county, district or state organisa
tion." It Is defined by Peterson as being
"a party which at the last preceding gen
eral election, cast for Its candidate for
governor at least 2 per cent of the total
vdte cast at said election.
Crossley provides for the- primary to be
held the third Tuesday In August, with
a primary In cities of 25,000 or over the
fourth Tuesday preceding the election.
Peterson provides for the primary to be
held the first Monday in September and in
cities and towns, the first Monday In March
Crossley provide that primary Judgf and
clerks of election shall be chosen as for
a general election. Peterson provides that
the same Judges and cierks serve both
primary and , general election. Crossley
provides for uniform ballot. Peterson for
different color for different parties.
Crossley provides for declaration of party
affiliation at the general election, the
auditor to certify the list to the Judges at
