MAYOR IS TIRED OF DELAY!
f resents to ths Coinoil an Ordinance. Fix
ing Wtter Rata.
REFERRED TO COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE
Makes Material Red act torn From the
Rates la the Ordinance Compiled
hy Engineer Ktereted for
Mayor Macrae, evidently despairing of the
special committee of which Councilman
Wallace Is chairman, doing anything, sub
mitted at the meeting of the city council
last night an ordinance containing a sched
ule of water rates. This ordinance was
drawn at the mayor request by Harl ft
Tinley, the legal firm specially employed
by the city in the water works matter.
The ordinance, while based to some ex
tent upon the schedule prepared by Expert
Klersted, provides for a greatly modified
schedule and It is doubtful if !'. will be ac
ceptable to the water works company. Mr.
Klersted's schedule provided for a minimum
rate of 17.2 for any service under meter
rates, a minimum rate of I10.SR where closet
or bath tub was used, 113.26 for closet and
1 tub, and 118.25 for closet, bath tub, hose
and general use. Mayor Macrae's ordinance
provides for the $7.26 minimum, for a $9
minimum. Including either bath or closet,
and for a HO minimum Including bath and
closest, hose and general use for barn and
all other purposes. The reduction In the
highest minimum In the mayor's schedule
from that of Expert Klersted It will be
seen la $3.26. while In the second highest
the reduction Is $4 25. The ordlnsnce was
referred to the committee of the whole,
which will meet tonight to consider it.
Revision of Ordinances.
Two hours of the session were consumed
In the rending of a number of revised or
dinances submitted by G. W. Scott, who
Is recompiling the ordinances. One of
these ordinances governing the duties, etc ,
of the mnyor Is to conform with the law
as amended by the recent legislature,
which gives the mayor considerably In
creased power. It places In the hands of
the mayor Instead of the city council the
appointment and supervision of street and
sidewalk commissioner, poll tax collector,
city physician or health officer, superin
tendent of markets, which was formerly an
elective office; poundmaster, custodian of
city building, city electrician and chief
of the police department. The only ap
pointment left with the city council Is
that of city clerk.
The new resolution drafted by City So
licitor Kimball providing for the exemption
from taxation of sugar In transit stored
in Council Bluffs was passed after more
or leas discussion. County Attorney Hess
spoke In support of the adoption of the
resolution, which, he stated would mean
the erection of several warehouses In the
city. Mayor Macrae, while not opposing
the resolution, said he could not under
stand the need of such a resolution if such
a oommodlty while In transit was exempt
by law from taxation.

Fire and Police Commission asneno's
Although "official" announcement has
been made that the Fire and Police com
mission will hear the charges agnlnst Chief
Jones of the fire department Wednesday
morning. It Is not known where the hearing
will be held. It has been suggested that
the hearing be conducted In the city council
chamber, so that the public, which Is In
terested, could attend, but this. It was
stated yesterday by a member of the com
mission, waa not to the liking of that body.
The commission hsa been holding Its meet
ings at different places, one day In the
private Insurance office of City Clerk Sapp,
who Is also clerk of the commission, and
sometimes at the State Savings bank, of
which Chairman Tinley of the commission
Is assistant cashier. Commissioner Zur

was possible the hearing might be held In
the office of Mayor Macrae In the city
hall, or, again. It might be held In Mr.

against Chief Jonos tho commission has

State Senator Saunders, as counsel for
Chief Jones, yesterday evening served writ
ten notice on County Attorney Hess to
bring In the name of the state of Iowa
quo warranto proceedings In the district
court testing the constitutionality of the
law creating the fire and police commis
sion and the right of the three members
appointed by Mayor Macrae to serve and
set under the law.
Mr. Hess refused to bring such proceed
ings. This refusal on the part of the
county attorney now places Mr. Saunders,
as counsel for Chief Jones, In a position
to bring such quo warranto proceedings,
the law providing that such proceedings
only can be brought by private persons
when the county attorney refuses to do so.
Senator Saunders stated last night that
he proposed to attack the Are and police,
commission law from several standpoints.
Similar laws, he declared, have been hold

Labor Fla-hts Committee.
Because, of a slight that the booster
committee of the city ' gave to the labor
circles a letter has been written by the
labor leaders of the city to the order of
the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen In
forming them of some of the conditions
In Des Moines as between capital and
labor. The booster committee Is trying to
get the order to move Its headquarters
to this city. The booster committee ne
glected to have a union labor man on the
committee and hence the letter. It Is In
timated by the labor union men that the
letter will not assist much In getting the
order to move to Des Moines. When the
booster committee first started In business
a few months ago It decided to get out
a button. Later In the day when the but
ton whs put on sale It developed that the
button was not union made and the union
men would not buy them. Members of the
booster committee say that there Is not
a member on the committee who la there
because he represents any Interest, the
members being selected solely on their
ability to boost the city. The labor union
men say that is all the more reason for
surprise at the absence of a union labor
Barrier Released from Prison.
George Burrier, convicted some years

Restaurant Keeper Stabbed.
John Boudewyns, proprietor of a res

at the time, was soon after arrested and
Is now In custody. Boudewyns Is In a

Governor Cummins has two days more
In which to sign or veto the three bills
1 that remain In his possession. Wednes
day Is the last day on which he can act.
If he does not sign or veto then they will
become laws without his signature. One
Is the law relating to the sale of land
belonging to the state that has been cre
ated by the Des Moines river changing Its
course. The other two are the smoke nui
sance law and the law amending the In
ebriate law. The governor has Indicated
j his intention as to the smoke nuisance
j law. It applies to cities of the sise of
, Des Moines only and so affects only this
, city. He told business men he would sign
' It unless the city enacts an ordinance
covering the matter. The city council has
dallied along and the indications are the
governor will sign the bill. There Is rea
son to believe that at least one of the
other two bills will be voted.

HOW SHOULD GOLFERS DIET?

What food shall a golfer eat to play at
his best? It Is a question that Is puzzling
more than one player now that the tourn
ament season has opened. More than one
local tournament has been won by a
player who has haunted the lobster . pal
aces uuntll S a. m. each day of the contest
nnd presumably trained on toasted cheese
and champagne. To the contrary, more
than one lost match has been blamed to a
too heavy breakfast or luncheon. Who
shall decide this vexing question?
Location has something to do with It.
On the northern links there are now as
sembled a host of golfers who have win
tered at resort courses, where "three
squares" and Incidental snacks are part
of the day's golfing. In Florida and south
ern California they have been eating fresh
strawberries and spring 'lamb for three
months, and arriving In the north they
And these succulent viands Just coming
Into season to further tempt the appetite.
The prizes, so far as may be learned, have
only been won by the golfers who have
been as faithful to the trenchers as to the
links. There Is no record, of a golfer win
ning who has forsaken the table, and with
the abnegation of a hermit eaten only
toaat and water as a preparation to his
Rx perls Show o Slsrna. '
The northerners, forced throughout the
winter to lusty foods of the season and
spiced at formal dinners by speeches that
had to be listened to, have shown no ad
vantage In point of training to the so
journers at the southern resorts, who have
been dallying with the tempting luxuries
of the hotel tables. The travelers have
returned not enervated, but refreshed hy
their high living. But for the change
from sanded to turf putting greens. In
deed, the resort players would have most
effectually wiped out the stay-at-homes,
a downfall for which the eye and touch
must be blamed and not the stomach. It
seems true that In golf a generous diet Is
the best system of training, hownver
heretical this may be on the cinder path,
the gridiron or In a racing shell.
There la still a supposition quite general
that a light diet Improves one's chances
In an athletic contest. Do we not re
member the Spartan diet of Tom Brown
at the meal before his great fight at
Rugby? But at golf the prize goes most
often to the hearty eater, for the trudging
and whacking over a four-mile stretch of
country csnnot be kept up on i a con
centrated food biscuit. It would be differ
ent, of course. In a violent and brief burst

was a certain strong player, who shall be
nameless. On the morning of tho first day
the match was halved, and In the afternoon
we again halved the same foursome. This
was Interesting, so we arranged to play

other half was the result. The struggle for
supremacy thus became very Intense, and

ide settling himself down to the most am
)le repast, with a bottle of champagne In
cluded, I vainly flattered myself that In the
jonrse of the next two or three hours the
honors of this great foursome would In
evitably fall upon my own side.
"But there was a aad disillusionment
forthcoming. From the time when we teed
tho first ball In the afternoon until the end
of the match, which came all too quickly,
he who had. done himself so well was quite
Irresistible and played the game of his
life! For the first few holes he made bogy
look ridiculous, and Indeed at one time
he seemed as If he might beat the record
nf the course. By the time the turn was
reached the game had resolved Itself Into a
mere procession, and the end came almost
Immediately afterward, our side ' being
hopelessly beaten. The champion of the
day was a Scot. Sydney Smith once anld
that It needed a corkscrew to get a Joke
Into the head of a Scot, and that day I
came to the conclusion that the same Im
plement was necessary to get the best
game out of a Scottish golfer."
In that early guide to the rigors of the
game, Horace Hutchinson's "Badminton"
book on golf, there Is an Illustration of
"the man to back." It Is of a golfer sitting
amid the serenity of self-conllaence, eating
a beefsteak and draining a good half bottle
of wine Just before entering upon a hard
match. Whether or not he Is likely to play
worse after lunch than before does not
appear to affect him In the least. A per
son who had never heard of "Badminton"
or of the golfing principle to eat as an
insurance of motor power, towit, tho stew
ard of the Atluntic City Country club, gave
an unexpected endorsement to Hutchin
son's favorite on the day when Waller
Travis and Findlay Douglas met In the
seml-Hnal of the national championship
there In 1801. It was a forogone conclu
sion that whoever won this match would
win the title. Travis stood 2 up for the
morning and for luncheon ordered a spe
cial sirloin steak and a pot of tea, whllo
Douglas, who la of a more nervous tem
perament, ate cold meat and took a high
ball. "The big eater for me," said the steward.
"I know nothing of golf, but I'll make a
bet that Travis wlus out."
It was a elate call, for Travis only won
on the thirty-eighth hole; yet the result
was a confirmation of the steward's cholcn.
To eat In one's normal vein would seom
to be the proper guide in golf, for there Is
as much danger to stinting ths menu as
in an Indulgence that is unusual. To quote
from a writer In the Field:
"The true gospel of how to lay consis
tently good golf Is not to attempt to make
a radical change In the established system
of dietary and training. Even the profes
sionals themselves recognize this; and
their word of warning, considering th'it
their livelihood depends upon the evenness
of their playing form spread over a long
period, ought to carry more weight than
any attempts to establish the same prin
ciple by abstract theorizing. On one occa
