EXPLOSION AT HOSPITAL
ftetm Tank of Bteriliiior Apparatus in
Oparatinc Boom Ilowg Up,
NO ONE IN THE ROOM AT THE TIME
Doctors Had Jnst Completed Opera
tloa aad They, With Pattest aad
Norses, Had Jost TaJiea
The explosion of the hot water tank of
the atetillsing apparatua did considerable
damage yeaterday In the operating rooma
at the newly opened Jennie Edmundson
memorial hospital. Fortunately, however,
no one was injured, aa th nuraea In charge
of th operating rooma had left a few min
utea before the explosion to go to dinner.
Th heavy riveted lid of th hot water
tank was blown off and upwards, tearing
a big hole in the plastering and steel lath
ing of the celling and breaking one of the
roof Joists, but not damaging the tiled
roof itself. The lid in Ita descent struck
one of the sterilising tnachinea, badly dent
Ing and otherwise damaging It. The large
plate glass windows, each ten feet square,
In the general operating room and the
private one of Dr. Macrae, Jr., which are
on each side of the atetillsing room, were
blown out into the yard below. By some
strange curcuma tance the other wlndowa
in these and the aterlllxing room were not
damaged In the slightest, and even the
glaaa bottlea and other vessels on a table
near the big window In Dr. Macrae's room
were not disturbed.
The explosion occurred about noon and
shortly after an operation had fceen per
formed in the rooma.' What might hava
been the consequence had the explosion
taken place while the operation was In
progress is hard to aay, but certainly would
hava been serious. Whether the explosion
resulted from a defect In the apparatus or
from some other cause could not be learned
ye,terday and probably will not be aacer-
talned until a representative of the firm
which Installed the aterlllxing machinery
reach ea here.
The new hospital has been In -operation
only since Tuesday, February 12, when the
patlenta were removed to It from the old
building on Sixth avenue and Ninth street,
and the accident Is greatly deplored by the
management, not only- on account of the
financial loss, but also on account of tho
inconvenience which will reault until the
damage can be repaired and the aterlllxing
machinery put In proper condition, again.
The membera of the Women'a Christian aa
soclatlon, who own and conduct the hospital
and .the staff of physicians, however, ex
pressed themselves as deeply thankful
that no one was Injured.
The operating rooma, which are located
In the east end of the building on the top
floor, are separated from the wards by
heavy doors and consequently the sound of
the explosion waa materially leaaened. The
patlenta were not . alarmed and those who
heard th noise . fancied something , had
fallen down the elevator.

who haa not been admitted to practice law

In presenting th resolution Mr. Benja
min stated he had no Interest In th matter
other than to uphold the profession and
to protect th public asamat any man
who holds himself out to be an attorney
at law by having "Attorney at Law"
printed on his letter heada and other sta
tionery, and in addition to having "Lawyer"

city and telephone directories as both law
yer and attorney, when such a man in fact
has not been admitted to th bar.
Messrs. Aakwith and Schurs, members of
the grlevanc commute of the association,
related what had takn , place In Justice
Greene's court and th action they had
taken therein. C. M. Harl and Emmet
Ttnley both took exceptions to the action
of th grievance committee and Tinley
declared he would emphatically oppose th
endorsement of th committee on that
occasion. H characterised the languag
used before Justice Greene as disgraceful
and decidedly Improper. He took occaalon
to clt th name of evral present mem

becoming decidedly heated, developed th
fact that certain member of th bar had
written to th judge of the supreme court
protesting agalnat th admtsatoa of Har
rison to th bar. Thl waa not denied, but
in fact was admitted, and in support of
their having done so the attorneys In
question offered to substantiate th charge
which they had mad against Harriaon.
City Attorney Kimball waa mainly ro
sKnslbla for bringing th acrimonious dls-
cussion to an end by declaring It waa un
seemly and should stop. He contended that
Harriaon had a right to rractlce In th
Juetlce courts, but that his holding himself
out aa an attorney when m fact he waa
not waa the only actlorable matter with
which the association had to deal.
After disposing of the Harrison matter
by Instructing the legislative committee to
draft the bill before referred to, the asso
ciation took a turn at J. Brown, the aaloon
crusader from Kansas. On motion of W. H.
Klllpack. former county attorney, the griev
ance committee waa instructed to wait on
Mr. Brown " and ascertain what standing

First Fall 9aae Rehearsal.
The many day of faithful rehearsal by
the hundreds of slngere, aoldlers. dancers
and children participating In Egypta re
sulted in an exceptionally satisfactory stage
rehearsal at the New theater last night. It
la really marveloua that so much could b
accomplished in so short a time. The vast
festival chorua sings with precision and
spirit that comes only from complete mas
tery of the score. Councir Bluffs Is fairly
overflowing with fine voices and now our
soloist are demonstrating that they possess
no small degree of dramatic Instinct. They
enter into the work with a test that be
tokens a keen realisation of the aplended
opportunities offered them by the thrilling
story of the opera. It abounds In strong
scenes and brilliant climaxes. There are
times when the large s'.age Is completely
filled by moving masses of people.
The spectacular effect of thla multitude
of character, all arrayed In the rich' flow
ing rosea of the orient, I at times almost
bewildering and no traveling organisation
could hope to rival it In massive groupings
and stage pictures. One large shipment of
special scenery has already arrived. Among
the settings now In place Is a superb view
of - the river Nile with Its pyramids and
sphinx and waving palms and rushea.
The waters of the river leap and sparkle
under the rays of the rising tropical sun, an
effect produced by the powerful electric ml
chines. Another remarkable electric effect
Is the "Pillar of Fire," leading the He
brews through the wilderness.

J. Brown appeared at the office yesterday
and tendered an apology for his forget

concerted when Informed that, the batch
of petitions had mysteriously disappeared
from off the counter during the early part
of the morning. At the same i time Mr.
Brown was Informed that no one in the
office of the clerk of the court had had
sufficient curiosity to look inside the en
velopes and ascertain what they contained,
the fact that they contained the petitions

papermen whose curiosity was greater than

papers Is a mystery.

withdrew his anti-lobby bill after It had
been recommended for passage by the
house judiciary committee.
The legislature adjourned today for a
five days' recess to allow the members,
most of whom are business men, to go

matters that have to be attended to the
first day of March, th date on which farm
leases run out and note and mortgages
come due. When the legislature reconvenes
March 8 It will have full calendars on

done by either house today, ther being
but a small attendance. The house failed
on one vote to show a quorum and the
roll call to determine whether or not a
quorum waa present, disclosed but sixty, or
five more than a quorum. The senate was
no better off.
The house today paaaed without debate
the Smith joint resolution memorialising
congress to call a constitutional conven
tion, the purpose of the resolution being to
secure a change that will allow the peo.
pie to vote direct on United States sena

population or over.
The Peterson bill . prohibiting corpora
tions contributing to political campaigns,
which was on the calendar for special
order for this morning, waa allowed to go
over because of the small attendance.
The house voted down the resolution to
furnish the journal clerks and engrossing
clerks of the house and aenate with copies
of the code, supplement and session laws.
