Etniu Han Qiveg Bar Committee Lltt's
Satisfaction In Iti Qnert.
MAKES NO PROFFER TO SHOW CREDENTIALS
Has Practiced Law la Kansas for
Twenty-FIre Years sal Says Me .
Will Satisfy the Coart at
the Proper Time.
Thai 'It was a fine day; that he was a
native of the land of Bobbie Burns; that
he had practiced law In tht state of Kan
sas; that hs and Mrs. Brown were now
residents of Council Bluffs and ftiat he
considered the action of the Pottawattamie
County Bar association in deciding to "In
vestigate" him was somewhat premature,
was practically all the information the
grievance committee of the Bar association
derived from Its visit to J. Brown, the
saloon crusader, yesterday. '
The ' grievance committee, acting under
Instructions given It at the meeting of the
Bar association Thursday, waited on Mr.
Brown yesterday morning. Attorney Schuri
of the committee having, beforehand ar
ranged for the visit with - Mr. Brown. At
torneys, A. B. Askwlth and H. L. Robert
son, together Willi Htrmun Schurs, com
prised the commit l ue.
Attorney churs did the honors and In
troduced Messrs. Ankvtitli and Robertson
to Mr. Brown and ait ronti as the formality
of shaking hands w concluded Informed
Mr. Brown of the purpose of their visit.
In order to relieve Mr. Brown of any doubt
he .might have In the matter, Mr. Schurs
assured the recent, arrival from Kansas
that the committee was not there in the
Interests ef the saloon keepers, but acting
under Instructions from the Pottawattamlo
County Bar association, wers there to learn
from him his standing in society and lngal
circles snd whether he was entitled to
practice law In the great state of' Iowa.
. While Mr. Schurs was explaining the
purport of the vUlt to Mr. Brown, the other
two members of the committee pre-empted
the two Vacant chairs, they, with the one
Mr. Brown was occupying and the little'
old-fashpned desk, constituting the entire
furniture of the office. :.When Attorney
Schurs concluded his preamble, he was
forced through lsck of other accommoda
tion to take a seat on the window sill.
" Brown Is !tnnomrnlttnl.
These preliminaries over, Mr. Brown tilted
back his chair, amllAd pleasantly and as
sured .his visitors he" was glad to know
them. "It Is a fine day." ventured the.
man from Kansas. .
"It certainly is," assented the members
of the Investigating committee in unison,
as they began to feel that the Ice hud
been broken and Mr. Brown was possibly
prepared to glvs ths Information sought by
the Bar association.
"Well, to start with gentlemen,- I was
born In Scotland and I cams to this country
when 18 years of age." Mr. Brown had
reached this point In his pedigree when he
wandered somewhat from the subject by
again remarking about ths fltie quality of
weathe- Once rriofe the three members of
the, committee assented In unison that it
was a fine day. . ' '
'I have practiced taw In Kansas for
twenty-fire years,"- continued Mr. Brown,
' "For twenty-five yearsT" queried the three
members of the committee, as If In one
breath.' , '
"Tes. for twenty-five years," repeated Mr.
Brown. ' , .
While another smile spread over his fea
tures Mr. 'Brows Informed his visitors that
to him It looked as If the Pottawattamie
County Bar association had been somewhat
premature In Its action Instructing the
grievance committee to "Investigate" him.
"I understand It Is the Intention to ques
tion my right to prsctlce In the courts here
and this question will be determined when
the suits instigated by me come before the
court," explained Mr. Brown, who vol
unteered the Informtalon that he and Mrs.
Brown were now r? sldents , of Council
' Mr. Brown then told the committee that
he had been given a straight tip to the
effect that one certain attorney had been
retained to defend the sixty or more venders
of. liquor against whom he had filed no
tices -of suit. The members of the com
mittee at this pricked up their ears and
Inquired of Mr. Brown the name of the
, "The name has Just slipped my memory,"
replied Mr., Brown. .-.,
The committee. In order to freshen Mr.
Brown's -memory, rrclted the names of all
the members of the bar, but - Mr. Brown
failed to recognise .or remember the one
he Jiad referred to.
At this point It again occurred to Mr.
Brown that It was a very fine day and he
so again informed his visitors and they In
turn agreed it was.
Having fully satisfied themselves that It
was a very fine day. the three members
of the committee looked at one another,
grabbed their hats and bidding Mr. Brown
good day, backed out of the undersized of
fice and beat a- hastjr retreat down the nar--row

feared that for the election of 1908 this
would be Impossible for the reason that the
proposed bill contemplates holding the pri
mary In June or later and that Is about
the date on which It Is expected the na
tional parties will hold their conventions.
This situation, however, may only neces
sitate some special arrangement for that
year. However, It was first proposed to
have the primary regularly ( In August,
which would always be after the date of
the national conventions. June, even, would
be too late for choosing delegates by pri
mary to national conventions In Some years
and to select the Velegates two years In
advance Is hardly thought practicable. The
Idea Is that a late date for a primary Is
desirable for the reason that It Insures
a short campaign, but to select national
convention delegates by primary vote
means an early primary date. Inasmuch
as Iowa may have a presidential candi
date the matter is of more than passlrfg
At the first primary election, which will
be In 1908 if the proposed btU passes, J here
will be a party declaration at the' primary,
but after that the party declaration will
be made at the general election preceding
the. primary. Unless, however, a voter
ckanges his place of residence the party
declaration once made stands," subject to
modification by the voter. The bill as now
prepared makes the supervisors the can
vassing board for all but state offices,
which will be Canvassed by the executive
council. The committee, has been advised
that It would be -daneerbus a allow con-
"tests to go directly to the courts. The bill
repeals the Polk county law and the new
law will apply to Polk -county as well as
the rest of the state. Wilson and Darrah, j
the chairmen of the senste and hours sub
committees, will complete the bill probably
during the recess adjournment, '
