BILLS SUGGESTED BY JUDGE DEEMER
Statement Made that Present II lab

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Feb. 17. tSpeclal.) A com
prehensive plan to teach agriculture in all
sections of the state through high schools
which will be feeders to the State College
of Agriculture at Ames Is etnltodled In bills
that bav? been Introduced In both houses
of the legislature and of which Judge
Horace . E. Deemer of the .supreme court
Is the author. The people of Red Oak,
Judge Deemer's home, stand ready to do
nate a $3u.U0O farm for carrying out the
idea. Since the first bill was Introduced
others bsve followed and out of the lot
It Is quite possible that the thirty-second
general assembly may start a compre
hensive scheme for educating the youth
for farmers. Judge Deemer claims that
under present conditions the youth of the
state In order to reach the State Agricul
tural college must go through the high
schools and the high schools educate away
f from the farm rather than toward It; they
(ducate for the city youth instead of for
the farm youth. Judge. Deemer, proposes
that at small expense the state can place
certain high schools under the supervision
of the sgrlcultural college and thus Insure
through a special course of study the edu
cation of youth for farm life. Judge
Deemer holds that It is surprising that
the farmers should have thus long toler
ated the high school education of their
sons and daughters.
Jury System Bills.
A sub-committee of the house Judiciary
committee has been Instructed to prepare
an emergency bill that will provide some
means by which Iowa and Polk counties,
which are now Juryless, may secure Juries
and not be without courts for the next two
years. It has been decided furthermore to
take up the Jury bills, a dozen or more In
number, next week and endeavor to press
the. passage of a measure that will Insure
better satisfaction In the, manner of select
ing the Juries.
Jackson's Mortsraare Measure.
The Jackson bill for the assessment of
mortgages as a part of the property
mortgaged and to exempt them from direct
taxation as moneys and credit was dis
cussed by the senate committee on Ways
and means. A. F. Call, G.' C. Scott and
Mr. Hopkins, all of Sioux City, spoke for
the bill; and Marshall Treynor of this
city, spoke against it as representing- an
outside loaning company. Robert Hanes
also spoke and made a plea for the ex
emption of all moneys and credits from
taxation. The purpose of the bill is to
place the Iowa money lenders on an equal
ity with those of other states, by having
all mortgages treated as a part of the
land mortgaged. At the option of the
mortgagor there may be a division of the
assessment, but the two must be treated
as one matter. The committee did not de
cide. For Mnnlelpnl Lea-lslatlon.
There is every indication at this time
that the Iowa legislature will enact some
needed municipal legislation. The senate
has op for consideration , the blljs sug
gested by the Iowa League of Municipali
ties and all of them wilt be reported for
passage. It Is believed, substantially In
the form In which they weae presented to
the committees. In addition, the Des
Moines plan of government by a commis
sion will be taken up this week by the com
mittees on municipalities. There is to be a
very determined fight against the Des
Moines plan bill by the politicians and aa
equally big showing made by the business
men of this city. There Is also understood
to be a movement on to bring to this city
persons in Sioux City and Cedar Rapids
who want the measure. A big argument In
Its favor which the business men will
use to advantage Is the fact that i It is
optional and cannot be forced upon any
community unless the majority of the cltl
xens wish It.
Making Haste Slowly.
The legislature this session may be said
to be making haste slowly. Beginning to
morrow morning the sessions will begin at
o'clock Instead of at 10, and something
more like speed may be attained. But al
though the houses are both moving without
any hysteria, they are getting away with a
great deal of legislation and there has been
a revival of the gossip that the legislature
will adjourn by March 20 The entire dis
position of this legislature is to do things
and do them In a way that makes little
fusa There Is a hearing one day on a bill
and the next the bill Is reported out and
passed. Just as was done with the 2-cent
fare bill In the house. Before a btll or
proposition has time to gather much force
and give the reporters time to tell news
about It. and before the politicians hsve
time to start anything, It Is passed by both
bouses and has the governor's signature.
Bryan for Postal Vote.
At the recent democratic luncheon In
honor of Hon. W. J. Bryan of Nebraska
It la understood Mr. Bryan suggested the
feasibility of a postal vote on election day
for cltlxens unavoidably away from home.
Grave Unestlon to Settle.
Ought a police Judge to be a Judicial
officer or a part of the administrative
force of the city? That Is a question which
is bothering some of the legislators.
The question came up in connection with
the series of bills that have b;en pre
sented on behalf of the League of Munici
palities. One provision was a change which
would make police Judges subject to ap
pointment of a mayor and subject to re
moval by hlra without cause. Mayor Wil
liams of Oakaloosa, who presented the mat
ter on behalf of the league, frankly ad
mitted that it was for tbe purpose of hav
ing the mayor and police court in harmony
so that they would never be tempted to
pull apart and defeat Justice.
But legislators present at the hearing
questioned the wisdom of placing power In
the mayor over the courts that administer
Justice under ordinances.
The general bill of the league looks to
greatly enlarging the powers of tbe mayor
and making bis office more of an executive
office, while the council becomes more of
a legislative position. The bill would re
duce the number of wards In second clars
cities to five or less and have one alder
man for each ward with two at large; In
towns, five coundlmen. all elected at large.
Town mayors would not be coundlmen. Bi
ennial municipal elections are provided. En
gineers, physicians and street commission
ers would be appointed by the mayor, and
In cities under 1000 the council would
choose the solicitor. Town clerks would In
all cases be chosen by the council.
Other bills considered relate to making a
board of public works . free, from Influence
of tbe council; to forbid treasurers to loan
out public money for private gain; to In
crease tbr possible tax levy for sewer pur
poses la certain cities.
rThe prevision that the mayor of a city
should appoint the police Judge, and that
S-UV appointive officers could be summarily
recaovadi by the appointive power, caused
some spirited dlsriisxlon. One point made
tn Its favor' was that In t- ns snd cities
of the second clas the mayor snd Judge
sre one and the same, and the plan sug
gested would come near to having this
sanw condition m first class cltlea
The lesgue has given a great deal of care
to the preparation of these bills and they
are being urge UVm the legislature with
much force ss necessary to harmonise the
laws of tha state.
The State's Bla Farms.
Iowa Is today one of the biggest bonsnxa
farmers In the world. The state owns thous
ands of acres which are used for agri
cultural purposes, and there Is a tendency
rather to Increase the seres and not dlmin
Ish. A legislative committee hss embodied
In a formal report a recommendation as to
these farms, which will attract a good deal
cf attention. It ' contemplates making use
of every one of these farms practically as
a model farm for experiment work and for
development of the very highest there Is In
agriculture. The report 1 that of the com
mittee which visited the Bldora school and.
referring to the farms, the report says:
"We suggest that the scentlfic knowledge
the state has at Ames be applied to the
farming of these premises and. If possible,
mnke them more productive. We believe
the great agricultural Interest of the state
should produce stock for use at the state
Institutions, and- that the farms operated
by the state should he brought under th
Influence thereof and become models of
scientific sgrlcultural operations SS well as
a source of greater Income."
The plan contemplates some sort of gen
eral supervision of the doxen big farms
the state owns by specialists from the
agricultural college, to the end that Iowa
not only have big farms, but the best farms
In the world.
The report also recommends regarding
this boys' Industrial school that the worst
elements be segregated from the others,
nlso that a railroad connection be formed,
but' that the administration building 1
sufficient for the present to give hospital
accommodations. Appropriations approved
by the committee aggregate $3,500.
Opticians Want n Law.
A hill has been prepared and Its passage
will be strongly urged In a short time pro
viding for a board to examine professional
opticians and to Issue certificates, much
after the manner of the boards to examine
dentists, veterinarians and others. It con
templates no expense" to the state, but the
graduate opticians of the state, who hive
become numerous, eel that their profes
sion should, be put on a par with others.
Cats Oaf the Lawyers.
According to Pension Agent Wlllcox of
tbe Des Moines office, the lawyera are to
be rat out of the pension business under
the new service pension law. Under the
old law If an old soldier wanted a pension
he had to hire a lawyer to present his case
to the pension bureau. Under the new law
a lawyer is unnecessary. Blanks are fur
nished by the pension -office in this cltv.
This blank properly filled out and sworn
to will bring a pension. It Is only neces
sary under the new law to show proof
of service In the army or navy and the age
to get the pension. An old soldier 62 years
old gets (12 a month and one 70 years old
gets 115 per month Snd 75 years or over
ta) per month.
Many Conventions Coming.
Des Moines the coming week Is the meet
ing place for' many conventions. The Iowa

BIG NINE RULES SOMEWHAT MODIFIED
Conference Track Meet Will Be HelU
at Kansas City I nlversltr of
Kebraska Was !Mot Rep
resented. KANSAS CITY, Feb. 17. (Special Tele-
gTam.) Representatives of the rthletlc
boards of Washington, Kansas, Iowa and
Missouri universities met here yesterday
in the second gathering of the Missouri
valley conference of faculty representa
tives. The organisation had been termed
tbe "Big Five," but Nebraska does not
seem to care for the scheme, and It now
looks as though the organization would be
formed with four universities.
When the representatives met hers last
month ' rules were drawn up. practically
Identical with the Chicago conference rules.
It was found, however, that several of
the universities did not care for as strict
a code as that used by the "Big Nine," and
at the meeting yesterday the rules were
somewhat modified, and now the repre
sentatives believe that none of the athletic
boards concerned can have any objection
to Joining the Missouri valley conference.
The men who were here yesterday will
present the rules to their respective ath
letic boards, and if all the universities con
cerned accept the code, the Missouri valley
conference of faeulty representatlvea will
be considered formed. It will settle all
disputed points that may arise between
members of the conference. It will hold
a conference track meet in Kansas City
In the spring of IP". The object of- the
body will be to boost college athletics in
the Missouri valley.

SPORTS PREFER "CATCH AS CAX
Oataha Aaasirera ef Wrestltac lacllne

Omaha sports prefer the eatch-as-catch-can
wrebUlug style to the Graeco-Roman,
snd with good reason. In catch-aa-catch-can
wrestling every known trick of trip
ping, toe holds and all sorts of leg work
are brought Into pity, while In the old
Greek-Roman stylo no hold of any de
scription is permitted below the waist line.
It is simply a tug and a twist above the
belt, whereas in the catch-as-catch-can
matches, seat Is added by tbe strife for
advantage by twisting the legs and grab
bing a toe hold.
In speaking of Simmers, the strong man
who wrestled here a week ago, Waaem
said: "Simmers is one of the strongest
men on the mat today, and when he braces
himself on the defensive It Is almost im
possible to move him. The anly way you
can handle that fellow la to get him ' to
coming at you and then get to htm.' for
when he braces himself to stop you trohi
doing a certain thing you might as well
strive to move a house."
