REPUBLICAN ORGAN BOLTS TICKET
Reason for Action Patent to Ob
servers of Situation.
Friends of W. H. Klllpack, former county
attorney, one of the republican nominees
for the Board of - Education, and repub
licans generally, are greatly surprised and
indignant over the action of the local repub
lican organ In openly opposing the election
of Mr. Klllpack. While for several years
past politics has been eliminated to a great
extent from the election of members of
the Board of Education, republicans and
democrats alike have generally voted for
their respective candidates when such can
didates have been men of responsibility
and character and eminently fitted to All
Mr. Klllpack was the choice of the mass
meeting of republicans last Thursday night
and he is conceded to be honest, straight
forward and capable and as a member of
the school board he will have no Interests
to serve except those of the schools and
ths people of this district.
The reason for the opposition of tho man
agement of the local republican organ to
Mr. Klllpack Is generally well understood.
It Is said to be due to the fact that Mr.
Klllpack was to a great extent Instru
mental In causing the Board of Supervisors
to reconsider Its action In awarding the
contract for the county printing and the
furnishing of blank books and other office
supplies to the local paper at prices which
had prevailed for several years past with
out Inviting bids from other firms. The
supervisors consulted Mr. Klllpack In the
matter and he advised them to open It to
competition, which they did, with the result
that under the new contract. If upheld by
the courts, the county will save from 28
to' 80 per cent on Its supplies furnished the
various offices In the court house.
It Is stated that similar conditions, which
prevailed at the court house, exist In the
public schools today of this city. Speak
ing of the opposition by the management
of the local republican organ to Mr. Klll
pack, a well known republican ana former
county official, said yesterday: "By open
ing to competition the furnishing of sup
plies to the county, a big saving has been
made. Perhaps with the addition of such
a man as Mr. Klllpack to the Bonrd of
Education, a like saving can be made In
the schools. There Is not s, blank form
used In all of the schools of the Independ
ent school district of Council Bluffs that Is ;
not furfilshed by the local republican 1
organ, at Its own figures. We ought to
elect men who will make our public school
the public's school and not permit the
manager of a newspaper to dictate nomina
tions or elections on the school board or
to havs any more voice In the control of
the schools than any other citizen who
does not control a newspaper. All repub.
Ucana Ought to get out Monday and vote
for the men who will serve the highest In
terests of all the people of this Independ
ent school district.

LIVE STOCK RATE REDUCED
Iswa Railway Commission Orders a Cot of
Sixteen Fer Cent.
TAKE UP OTHER COMMODITIES NEXT WEEK
Bill to Place AH State Educational
Institutions I'nder Control of One
Board of Regents Passes
(From a Staff Correspondent
PES MOINES, March 9. (Special Tele
gram. -Frelght rates on live stock in Iowa
will be reduced about 18 per cent. This
was the decision of the railroad commis
sion this afternoon at 4 o'clock, when the
hearing on the petition of the Corn Belt
Meat Producers' association for a reduction
of 26 per cent was concluded. The cattle
men are well satisfied with the decision of
the commission. At the conclusion of the
hearing Commissioner Eaton read the deci
sion of the commission, to the effect that
the rate In this state, which Is now about
J3 per cent higher than that in Illinois,
should not be more than about 5 per cent
higher. The decision was announced to
reduce the rates on that basis, making a
reduction of not more than Wb or less than
15 per cent. The commissioners further
more held with the cattlemen that the
railroads should put In a feeding In transit
rate, such as Is enjoyed In Nebraska, The
commission held that It had no authority
to order such a rate, because It Is Interstate
commerce, but did recommend such a rate
to the railroads. The exact reduction of
the rates on live stock being a matter of
considerable expert figuring, the commis
sion announced that the exact rates would
not be announced till some time later. The
commission's decision Alls several type-
written pages and Is a very strong state
ment of the situation as to rates In lows.
Representatives of the Corn Belt Meat
Producers' association and members of the
legislature who have been championing ths
campaign for lower rates are gratified at
the decision and believe It a forecast of
what may be secured on the hearings on
other commodities which are to follow next
Des Moines Men Lose First Roand.
The bill to reimburse Des 'Moines men
for land purchased and deeded to the state
for use for the state fair failed to receive
the necessary two-thirds vote of all the
members of the house this afternoon. A
motion to reconsider was made by Moore
of LJnn In the hope of killing the bill for
all time to come, but the friends of the
bill, being In the majority, voted to re
consider, and then made It a special order
for Tuesday next, when a full attendance
It is believed will pass the bill.

Resents Bill Passes Senate.
By almost Identically the same vote by
which it passed the bill last session the
senate today paased the bm to consolidate
the management of the three state educa
tional Institutions under one board ' of
regents. The vote was 82 to 17, every mem
ber voting on the bill except Saunders of
Council .Bluffs, who was absent. The bill
passed the senate last session by 82 to 16.
It was later killed in the house. It is be
lieved by the friends of the measure that It
stands a better chance of passing the house
at this session. It Is considered one of the
most important measures of the session.
Only two had changed their votes, 8tuck
singer and Jamison voting this year for the
House Passes Rond Law.
After putting Itself twice this session
on record as being opposed to In ny way
amending the provisions of the road law
of two sessions ago, providing that art
the road tax shall be paid In caBh, the
house today passed a measure raising the
possible township road levy from 4 to 6
mills and permitting 2 mills of the tax to
be worked out.
Other bills passed by the house were as
follows: Permitting counties to purchase
I land for county fair purposes; appropria
ting $10,000 for repairs on the state house;
legalising the acts of the town of Bedford,
ordinances; providing for the recovery of
lost certificates of sale; appropriating
