Arrested for Reckless Riding;.
Carl Grace, a young lad, was arrested
yesterday afternoon on the double charge
of reckless riding on a public thoroughfare
and using obscene language. Grace, with
two lads, were racing their ponies on the
newly paved portion of Lower Broadway,
when called to halt by Officer Smith. As
tho boys were mounted and the officer
was on foot, they decided to give him, in
the parlance of the street, "the horse
laugh," as they put spurs to their steeds
and galloped away. When thus bidding
adieu to the officer they Indulged In lan
guage which under the city ordinances Is
classed as obscene. The boys rode west.
Officer Smith boarded a motor bound for
Omaha and overhauled the lads at Thirty
fourth street. They were not looking for
him and he managed to grab the bridle
of young Grace's mount before he oould
get away. The other two boys, however,
fled as soon as they spied the officer.

SOUTH DAKOTA CAR SHORTAGE
Railroad Commission Will Consider
Complaints of Grain Men at
Sleeting Next Week.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D.. March 17. (Spe
cial.) Considerable business of Importance
will come up for consideration at the reg
ular monthly meeting of the State Board
of Railroad Commissioners, which will be
held at the headquarters of the commission
In this city on the 28th Inst. One of the
principal matters to receive attention will
be the car shortage which yet exists In the
state, grain men and other shippers being
greatly Inconvenienced at many points In
the state by the slowness with, which they
ore able to secure empty cars for loading.
At numerous points elevators are filled to
the bursting point and the purchasing of
grain has ceased because there Is no more
room to store It. The railroad companies
appear to be doing everything possible to
relieve the situation, which at some points
has reached the acute stage. Regular
routine matters also will be disposed of
by the board during the meeting.
After having consumed a day in listening
to the arguments, the State Board of Rail
road Commissioners has taken under ad
visement a case involving some unusually
fine points of law.
The case Involves the construction of a
sidetrack on the Chicago & Northwestern
railroad at a point midway between the
towns of Salem and Canova. The construc
tion of the proposed sidetrack is being
stoutly opposed by the railroad company,
not alone upon the ground of the expense
attached to It, but on other grounds which
Involve the extent of the Jurisdiction of the
State Board of Railroad Commissioners.
A clause In the state law prevents the
ordering In of sidetracks between stations
which are less than twelve miles apart.
In deciding this case the railroad commis
sioners will be required to define the mean
ing of the word "station." The station
buildings at Salem and Canova are a trifle
over twelve miles apart, but the boundaries
of the station grounds at the two points
are considerably loss than twelve miles
apart, and the railroad company therefor
contends that the railroad commissioners
have not the power to order that the side
track be constructed.

DES MOINES, March 17. (Specials
Committee work will end In both houses
with the coming week and the bulk of
It was over with by last night. Whether
there are to be three or four more weeks
of the session remains to be seen, but It Is
now apparently agreed that adjournment
cannot be reached before April 6 at least,
and probably not till April 18. which would
make the session one of thirteen weeks,
Just as It usunlly Is. At any rate, after
this week the business on hand will consist
largely of pssslng bills. In both houses
most of the big measures have already
been rut out of the hands of the commit
tees and are on the calendar In one form
Jtnllroad measures, for which this legis
lature Is likely to be known In the future,
will be concluded so far as the house com
mittees are concerned on Monday next,
according to Chairman Meredith. The big
gest of the measures have already been
acted upon. Here Is a list of the bills which
the house railroads committee has acted
upon at this session recommending passage:
Two-cent fare bill.
Reciprocal demurrage. Mil on live stock.
Bill fixing rates for sleeping car com
panies. , ,
Hill providing that terminal facilities shall
be open to all roads.
Bill requiring street car terminals be
open to all Intemrbans.
Conn bill putting express companies under
the railroad commission.
White bill, permitting the commission to
prosecute Interstate discriminations before
the Interstate Commerce commission.
Bill providing that railroads must report
all accidents at once to the railroad com
mission and the governor.
Bill requiring that weeds be killed along
Limiting hours of employment of train
men. Teter bill, relating to lost baggage.
A bill requiring shelters opposite depots
where there are double tracks.
The 2-cent fare bill, reciprocal demurrage
bill, anti-pass bill, and bill requiring that
reports be made at once of accidents to the
commission and the governor, all have
passed the house, and the 2-cent fare bill
has passed the senate. The senate has
passed but one or two minor measures,
among them the bill requiring shelters op
posite depots where there are double tracks.
This has been acted upon by the house
committee. ATI the other measures are on
the house calendar and It Is anticipated
will be made special order and acted upon
early next week.
Primary Law Next.
The primary election law Is special order
In the senate for tomorrow and In the house
for Tuesday. The measure, as It stands on
the calendar at this time. Is a progressive
measure pure and simple, and the question
Is what will become of It In the discussion
that will ensue. The measure will meet Its
fate this week;: Though written by the
Cummins men thoy do not have enough
votes to pass It In either house without the
aid either of the democrats or the stand
patters. It Is probable In Its present form
tne bill oould get the votes of a number of
the democrats, but there is probably not
one standpatter In the senate, aside from
Crossley, who would vote for It aa It Is
now, and In the house there Is not more

than three or four,
have about twenty vot
and It must huve twenty-six to pass and be
come a law. In the house the Cummins
men have forty-six or forty-seven votes,
and they must have fifty-five In order to
pass the measure there. It therefore be
comes a question whether the democrats
or the standpatters will assist In the pas
sage of the bill. The Cummins men. It Is
believed, now muet compromise with either
one or the other to get their bill through.
In view of tho fact that the primary is
asked for In the platform of the republican
party it Is not believed that the standpat
ters will allow the Cummins men to pass
their measure with the democratic vote la
opposition to the standpatters. Tba demo
cratic platform also declares rar a primary
and therefore as soon as the Cummins men
have made terms with one, it Is believed
that the other will come In and vote for
The question being discussed is Just what
the compromise will be. The Cummins men
want a plurality measure. The standpat
ters and democrats want a majority meas
ure. The compromise will likely be a plu
rality measure with a minimum of one
third or one-fourth. It is thought that the
standpatters will consent to a plurality law
with a minimum requirement of one-fourth,
and the Cummins men will treat with the
forces that will make It the lowest.
To Teat Matter Soon.
A test of the question of whether or not
there is to be created a department of
Insurance or whether the Insurance busi
ness will be left with the state auditor
Is to come soon In the senate. The bills
ri-movlng the banking department to the
state treasurer's office and the municipal
accounts department to the secretary of
state's office, which bills contemplate leav
ing the Insurance business with the state
RV("!tor, ure In direct conflict with the bill
by the insurance commission, backed by the
petitions of scores of Insurance men to
create a separate department of insurance
with a commissioner In charge appointed
by the governor They are on the calendar
and the opposing forces are to fight It out
soon. The bill creating a department of
Insurance must yet be passed upon by the
appropriations committee and It Is not
st all unlikely that It may be handicapped
In the fight by an adverse report from that
committee, which can find many other ways
for ublng its funds.
Agricultural Schools1 Likely.
It seems now more than likely that Iowa
la about to enter on the Innovation of pro
viding for four agricultural high schools
In the four quarters of the state to be
feeders to the State Agricultural colli ge at
Ames. At first the proposal met with op
position, for It meant money. This has
been gotten past by providing for a mlllage
tax of one-tenth of a mill, which is ex
pected to erect one high school every year
for four years. The first will likely be
built at Red Oak, the home of Judge
Deemer of the supreme court, who origi
nated the Idea. The argument is that the
present schools educate the boy sway from
the farms and that scientific farm educa
tion wou!d keep the boys on the farms
and mould result In the farmers dividing-
' their large farms Into smaller ones for their
boys. With the direct appropriation feature
cut out the members of the legislature are
taking up with the Idea.
