neil of Beerelary to Iic
ced Mr. Reed.
The mans of figures which he quoted
detracted somewhat from the value of C.
A. Uardell's address before the Commer
cial club last night on "Water Rates."
Mr. Ilardell took ths position that the
schedule prepared by Mr. Klersted of Kar
sas City, the expert hydraulic engineer
employed by tho city, was entirely too
high. The spker introduced so many
figures that they became perfectly be
wildering and his audience was unable to
follow him. Mr. Hardell took Mr. Kler
sted's schedule and literally tore It to pieces
from beginning to end with his array of
counter rates and figures.
Mayor Macrae and most of the member
of the city council were present during
Mr. Hardell's talk, coming to the meeting
from their session at the city hall as a
Board of Equalization.
City Treasurer True addressed the club
on "Taxation," hrs addree being sub

The report of Secretary Reed showed that
the club had a membership of 260 In good

to succeed Mr. Reed, but It is understood
that some action Is anticipated at the meet
ing of the committee this evening.

HOSPITAL. I If USED OF FUND
Women to Give Baiar In Kffort to
Raise the Cash.
The members of the Woman's Christian
association realize that energetic efforts
will have to be made to raise funds to
meet the pressing liabilities which now
face them as the result of opening the new
Jennie EMmunueon Memorial hospital. In
the first place, the association found It
had to meet the Interest on the (40,000 loan
from J. D. Edmund-on before It had time
to realise anything particularly from the
new hospital. Then again, a large ex
pense was Incurred and I being Incurred
In equipping the new building and grad
ing the grounds about It. Ever since the
new hospital was opened to the public
there ha ben a heavy drain upon the
resources of the association and the mem
bers, who have worked hard to make the
Institution what It I today, are con
fronted with the necessity of raising at
least $3,000 to take care of th more Im
mediately pressing need.
With the end In view of fstlslng thl
money, or at least part of It, the asso
ciation has secured the aid of the Prot
estant churches of the city In the baser
to be held the week beginning May 10 In
ths basement of the Hunter store. The
several churches will each donate a day
to taking charge of the baxar. Another
plan will be to soliolt from the larger
merchant of the city, a per cent on their
sales of a certain day's business. This
suggestion was made by a member of one
of the big firms and It Is expected the
others will be only too pleased to fall
Into line and In this manner assist the
association In It work.

COURT 'WANTS TWO TELEPHONES
Jadaro Raids la Abeyance Orders of
Roard of Supervisors.
The two telephones for the use of the
district court will remain where they are,
at leaat Tor the present. Such was the
order Issued yesterday by Judge Wheeler.
The county supervisors, at the last meet
ing decided to reduce the number of
telephones In the court house. The clerk
of the district court, county audi (or and
sheriff were permitted to retain the Bell
and Independent telephones in their re
spective offloe, but the treasurer, re
corder, superintendent of school an1
county attorney were permitted to retain
only one telephone each, they to decide
which they preferred. Bell or Independent.
The question arose yesterday a to which
office the telephone In th dlstiiot court
belonged. H. V. BatUy. clerk of th dis
trict court, disclaimed any Interest a did
Sheriff Canning. Both Clerk Battey and
Sheriff Canning need the two telephones
In their respective offices downstairs and
are unwilling to eaortfloe either the Bell
of the Independent a they desire to ac
commodate attorney and others attending
district court. Th matter was called to
the attention of Judge Wheeler yesterday
and he ordered that the telephone be not
disturbed until the next meeting of the
supervisor. Judge Wheeler will Insist that
the telephones rn the district court be left
where they are.

President E. H. Merriam of the Commer

Keyea and Fred R. Davl of the transporta

Des Moines, where they appeared before
th State Railway commission, is of the
opinion that Council Bluffs would be In a
muoh better position to make demand on
the railroad if It had a freight bureau.
Mr. Merriam and hi confrere realised
thl while In De Moines, a that city has
an exceedingly strong organisation and the
shippers when they go before the railroads
are In a position to make definite demands.
The Council Bluffs men, however, were not
dlsanrjolnted. a they learned a "few
things," as Mr. Merriam termed It, while j
Regarding the "long haul" rat In Iowa,
about which the Council Bluff shippers
complained, Mr. Merriam said yesterday:
"My opinion Is that the commission will
approximate the new Illinois schedule,
which will mean a lower long distance rate
and a higher rate for a short haul."

Best Interests of the
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, May 1. (Special.) George
Burrler, one of the gang that stole the
Fay diamonds in Clinton, la., will be re
leased from the penitentiary Inside of a
week. Burrler Is the man who confessed
and thus assisted in the convicting of the
other six or seven members of the gang.
It Is asserted that he wa promised len
iency and a mere nominal sentence If he
would turn state's evidence. He did so
and was convicted with the rest. Then he
made an effort to get paroled, but there
was so much objection to the nominal sen
tence Idea and so much of a fight to have
him sufficiently punished with the rest
that he wa allowed to stay In f)ie peni-
tentlary. . When released he will have
served the equivalent of an elghUyear sen
tence, counting off all the good tlm.
Burrler and his gang were one of the
most deeperate the state has ever known.
They wer working In harmony with
Bhercllff and his crowd.
Xo Redaction on Merchandise.
While the railroad commission has not
given any decision In the question of the
state rata on merchandise there Is little
Indication given by the members of the
commission from their Informal talks since
the hearing that there will be any reduc
tion In ths rates.. There Is, In fact, con
siderable Indication that there will be no
reduction. Ths Council Bluffs business
men argued for a lower long haul rate.
The railroads, at the hearing, made a plea
for the abolishment of the fixed distance
rates that are In force in Iowa. They
asserted that with less rigidity they could
put In rates that would be satisfactory.
The railroad commission claims that under
the distance tariff In Iowa factories have
been built up and that the abandonment
Of the maximum distance rates would mean
an entire reorganisation of the factory sit

Isewhere. They furthermore seem to
