Death Rate Increasing?.
The records of City Physician Rice,
which are prepared by him for the State
Board of Health, show that the death rate
In Council Bluffs during the first fur
months of this year is greater than during
the same period in 1906. The unusually
cold and variable weather experienced dur
ing the last few weeks is held accountable
for the lncreaso In the number of deaths.
During January, February and March
there was an Increase of forty-eight deaths
ov.r tho corresponding period in 1906, while
thirty-five deaths were reported during
April, as against twenty-nine In the same
month last year.
City Physician Rice says there was less
throat trouble this spring than usual, the
cases of diphtheria being sporadic and not
of a malignant character. The average
deith rate In Kane township during 1901
was one a day for the year, but with 197
deaths In tho first four months it looks as

was considerable commotion among the

many of them invaded the dining room and

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. May 2. (Special.) "Pug"
Gallagher, a strike breaker of Chicago, is
In Des Moines to breuk the Btrlku of the
railroad freight handlers which was started
yesterday. Today It Is asserted that De
Moines is threatened with a freight ticup
and that fifty-three men who walked out
on tho Roc'.i Island yesterduy are to be
followed tomorrow by a walkout of the
truck men on the Northwestern, and that
the Great Western men are expected to
follow a few days later. Gallagher's coin
ing to Des Moines with a party of strike
breakers is recognized here as one of the
evidences that the strike Is of threatening
proportions. Gallagher was conspicuous In
the teamsters' strike In Chicago.
The walkout on the Rock island was due
to the fact that the men asserted they had
to work six or eight hours overtime each
day with no extra compensation what
ever. Wednesday the local agent conceded
a ten-hour wage scale, but the men claim
would not concede extra pay fur overtime.
They claim they have to work till 11 or 12
at night almost as a steady thing, without
an opportunity for even getting something
to eat at supper time.
Fear for Senator Allison.
Iowa people are gradually becoming more
apprehensive that Senator Allison not only
will not be able to fill out his term, which
expires March 4, 1909, when he will be SO
years and 2 days old, but that he will not
be able to return to Washington next
December. Public men of Washington who
have been familiar with Allison's condition
have lately been In Des Moines and their
report Is very discouraging. Senator Alli
son, or the expiration of his term, will
have been thirty-four years In the senate.
Tear before last he crossed the line of
greatest length of service and has now
served longer than any other man who has
been In the senate. Senator Allison Is suf
fering from nothing but old age. Having
kept In vigorous health till his present ad
vanced age after the break down hus
started It la feared there is no hopes of
recovery, and the reports are that he Is
failing much faster than was at first ap
prehended. Plans for Cntiane Mailed.
