PARK BOARD REORGANIZES FOR YEAR

Among? Them the Reparriagr of
the Horseshoe Driveway
If the city had any expectations that the
proceeds of the street fair and carnival
this fall would be devoted to the paving
of Lower Broadway, they were dispelled
by a statement made last night at the
annual meeting of the Board of Park
Commissioners by President Bender and
Emmet Tlnley of the Council Bluffs Street
Fair and Carnival ox n pony. Mesam, Bender
and Tlnley appeared before the board with
a request that the carnival company be
permitted the uae, as In former years, of
a portion of Bayllas park for the street
fair. They stated that the net proceeds
of the carnival would be devoted to the
betterment of the roads leading Into the
city. The use of the park was granted
under the conditions which have prevailed
In the past.
The board reorganised by re-electing A.
C. Graham, president; J. J. Brown, vice
president; Frank Peterson, secretary;
Perry Badollet, treasurer, and W. H.
Improvements at Fatrmonat.
In his annual report President Graham
had ths following to say relative to the
proposed Improvements in Falrmount
With the amount of money carried over
from last year and the Income we will
have this year we will be enabled to main
tain the parks and make some needed and
expensive Improvements. The most Im
portant of these, aa well as the most ex
pensive, is the repairing of the driveway
In "The Horseshoe" in
which we have been obliged to close on
account of the bad condition of the cement
pavement. Estimates of the cost of con
structing gutters of brick and cement on
each side of the roadway make this neces
sary improvement very expensive, ap
proximating between 14,000 and J4.500. ' It
will require 80,000 brick st 110, per 1,000;
cement, ri00; sand, 1200; labor, $1,000, and
the removal and hauling away of 2,000
loads of decayed concrete and gravel at
tot less than 76 cents a load. In my
opinion at least $2,000 can be saved and
as good a roadway and gutters made by
using the material already on the ground.
At the expense of labor only It can be
broken up for use aa concrete and perma
nent gutters made of It and the excess
used for macadamising the roadway.
Last year a road was ordered from the
southwest corner of Fairmmint nark Ann-
nectlng with Twelfth avenue, which we
were unaole to build tor lack of funds,
1 would recommend that this work be done
this year, so that the five acres we have
cleaned up and prepared can be opened
up for a small park for the benefit of the
people oi tnat part of the city, and that
at least one drinking fountain and some
seats be placed there.
President Graham also made the follow
That the arc light in Cochran park Be
replaced Ly the city.
That the road from Fifteenth street to
the cottage In Lakevlew park be graded
and the culverts properly bridged and that
the waterway from Mynster springs be cut
directly Into the lake from the Northwest
ern railroad tracks to prevent the recur
rence of overflows and that the new chan
nel be properly bridged.
That ths park rules prohibiting shoot
ing In the psrks be enforced so that no
shooting of any kind be permitted In Lake
view park during the closed season for
That citizens passing through the parka
leave their dogs at home, as eight of the
best squirrels were killed la.t year by
The purchase of five boats to be placed
in Lakevlew and that the boots be placed
In custody of the park policeman and
the btard fix the price to oe charged as
rental for the same.)
The board authorised President Graham
to have an engineer prepare an estimate
of the cost of improving the road around
the "Horseshoe" In Falrmount park as
suggested, but It Is likely that only one
side of the roadway will be reconstructed
.The salaries of the park caretakers and
policemen were fixed as follows:
Rasmus Jensen, Fslrmount, $50 a month;
Charles Tutty, Falrmount, $60; Peter
Bhay, Baylies. $50; M. Callaghan, Cochran.
$40; C. A. Rose, Lakevlew, $16; William

claims of certain banks and trust com

Mr. Southard, as before, showed on the

COMMITTER Bl'ST O"! WATER RATES
Proposed Extensions Mast Be Taken
Extensions of the water system will have
to bo taken Into account by the special com
mittee In framing a new franchise and
schedule of rates for the water works com
pany. This la realised by the committee,
and persons desiring extension of the
water pipes to their property must file their
requests with the city clerk by norm of Fri
day In order that same may be considered
at the mentlngr of the city council In com
mittee of the whole that afternoon.
Councilman Hendrlx has already, for the
Sixth ward, filed a Ions; lhrt of needed ex
tensions, as has Councilman Knudsen for
the Fourth and Councilman Smith for the
Fifth ward. Extensions of water pipes
means necessarily additional hydrants, and
all this will have to be definitely determ
ined before the committee can figure cor
rectly on the proposed schedule of rate.
The special water works committee, of
which Counollman Wallace Is chairman,
has been authorised to secure. If possible,
the services of W. Klersted, the expert en
gineer employed by the city to compute the
value of the present plant etc., to assist
In preparing a rate schedule. The schedule
Is to be computed on a $600,000 valuation of
the plant plus the cost of Improvements
suggested and recommended by Mr. Kler
sted. Should the water works company de
cline to accept the rates fixed by Mr. Kler
sted, the city will not be at any expense
In this respect as Manager Hart has agreed
for his company to pay the expense 1 of
bringing Mr. Klersted for this purpose.

number would be taken out.

ANTI-PASS BILL IS BEING REVISED
Senate and Flense Likely to Grant
Pardons to Three Life-term Pris
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DKS MOINES, Ia., April t-(Speclal.)
In the house today the bill to create a
separate department of Insurance, that
came over from the senate, was Indefinitely
postponed on the report of the committee,
the house refusing by a large vote to sub
stitute a minority report that a separate
department be created. This action set
tles the question of an Insurance depart
ment for this session. The argument that
got the house was that a separate Insur
ance department would cost the state 113,
000 a year besides the cost of fixing up
quarters. It was pointed out that the aud
itor's department could be relieved of some
of Its extra work by shoving the banking
department over to the state treasurer's
office and the municipal accounts and build
ing and loan departments to the secretary
of state's office, bills to affect which had
already been parsed by the house. Jones
of Montgomery In the discussion further
more gave the house the hint that the In
surance companies were a little too per
niciously active for the creation of a sep
arate department and he told the house
that with many new Insurance bills on
the statute books It would be far better
for the state to make no change at this
time and to allow Auditor Carroll, who Is
familiar with the laws, to enforce them till
things got adjusted. The senate may still
refuse to pass the house bills changing the
banking department and the department
of municipal accounts. If It does refuse
the departments will remain Just as they
Senate Bills Passed.
The house today passed the senate bill re
quiring that the length of a ball of binder
twine be stamped on the outside of the
ball and the bill from the senate relating to
the misbranding of drugs, and the bill
for the taxation of Insurance companies
organized In other states and doing busi
ness in Iowa.
The house today refused to recede from
Its position on the uniform fire Insurance
policy bill and concurred In the senate
amendments to the - peddlers license bill,
bill for revoking physicians' licenses and
bill punishing burglary with explosives.
Indeterminate Bill Signed.
The governor signed the indeterminate
sentence bill today and It will be published
tomorrow and become a law. The provi
sions of the bill, so far as they relate
to the Institutions and the paroles, do not
go Into effect until In July, but It Is neces
sary that the law shall be effective now so
that the governor can make the appoint
ments to the parole board and that board
can go to work. The governor expects to
make his appointments tomorrow or the
The Joint session of the two houses to
elect trustees and regents of the state
boards will be held tomorrow or next day.
Two caucuses were held today and selec
tions made. In the Third district J. S.
Jones of Manchester was selected to suc
ceed C. E. Alexander on the college board
for Ames. The Fourth district republicans
decided upon recommending another term
for Alonio Abernethy of Osage for mem
ber of the same board.
Anti-Pass BUI Revised.
The senate revised the anti-pass bill In
accordance with the agreement entered
Into on Monday and made the necessary
changes. This leaves It so there will be
but one attorney and two doctors In each
county entitled to a free pass, and It also
provides for annual reports of all lists of
pass holders outside of the actual em
ployes of the company. In this form the
bill will go to the governor.

committee and passed a large number.
