One of the members of the commission,

reached by the commission at Its meeting

entirely harmonious at the meeting last
evening. We were all agreed. (Beyond this

(From a Staff Correspondent )
DES MOINE3. May 25 -,Spec!al.)-Th
fight In Des Moines between suporters of
the new "Des Moines rian" of municipal
g'-'Vernment and the adherdt.ts of the old
ward alderman system, now In force, has
grown to such proportions as to be tha all
absorbing topic of conversation ln the
capital city. It is propesed to adopt a form
of government, appointing five commis
sioners to transact all tha affairs of t'.io
city ln place of th system how In force.
A great deal of opposition haa developed,
much of this from the labor classes who
assert that th new form of government Is
being backed only by th blue-stocking
Were the plan submitted to a vote of the
people today It Is confidently ssserted and
this too la admitted by Its promoters that
the new plan would fall of endorsement by
the poople. Put those In fsvor of it have
begun a systemstlc plan of education
which Is to be pushed forward to the day
of election when It Is hoped by them the
commission plan will triumph.
The greatest argument advanced by those
opposing the commission plan of govern
ment Is that It Is contrary to the constitu
tion and against all Ideas of government
promulgated by our forefathers that It Is
government without representation. That
all the commissioners could be appoint -d
from but one precinct.
Those favoring the measure assert that
politics should be divorced from municipal
government and that this Is the only ef
fective means of doing so; that the people
can be persuaded to get out and vote en
masse only when they believe there will be
some radical change In the form of ad
ministering government In the city,
second Cavalry Here.
Orders were Issued from the de
partment at Washington today Instruct
ing the Second cavalry to move from Ne
braska, Montana and Minnetota to Fort
Des Moines, there to take the place re
cently vacated by the Eleventh cavalry.
For years the Scond cavalry has been
on of the most conspicuous regiments of
the country. One of the officers whose
memory th regiment delights to honor
Is General Harney, who waa vlth tha reg
iment In the old dragoon days, vho was
for a time its colonel and whose tomo
at Arlington bears the remarkable recorl
of a man vho saw seventy years of ser
vice. Many distinguished confederate offi
cers, among them General Hardee, au
thor of "Hardee's Tactics," served before
the rebellion with the Second.
Among the officers of tffe regiment Is
First Lieutenant Clarence A. Scott, who
Is a son-in-law of Colonel William F.
Cody, best known as Buffalo Bill.
The two squadrons of the Second cav
alry now located ln Minnesota nd Ne
braska will march overland to the post

Elmer Pratt, a near neighbor, late last

but It Is not expected the grand Jury will

from the trachea like a network and conduct the air to and from the lungs.
They are very delicate and easily affected
The starting point Is frequently a severe ooM in the heod. or repeated
colds, producing an Inflammation or diseased condition of the mucous mem
brane lining the nose or thrnt. commonly designated as a Catarrhal condi
tion. Poisonous secretions then aciumulate. which are not only absorbed,
affecting the Mood and nerves, but there Is also a constant dri v-lng of this
poisonous substance from the nose to throat, etc. hence It extends to the
bronchial tubes, frequently producing Anhma. then Into the limns, causing
acutfl lung disease, and finally into the lung tissue, terminating Into consump
tion. Through neglect and Inattention It gradually weakens the whole pul
monary' system, making it very susceptible to disease as It seldom ceases In
Its destructive course until it his Invaded the stomach, liver and kidneys, af
fecting the entire system. If the Inflammation extends into the lungs. It is
very apt to render them susceptible to the pneumonia germ, tending to make
th sufterer an easy prey to the ravages.
' If the disease Is allowed to prcgress until it has advanced to this stago
the sufferer then realises that he is in the clutches of one of the most de
structive diseases that pervades our land, spreading desolation, in Its incip
ient stages little pain or inconvenience Is experienced, and the sufferer Is
lulled into a senre of false security, postponing treatment day after day and
week after week. In the meantime allowing the disease to advance step by
step until It has securely fastened its tentacles upon-the system. If you are
affl cted with this disease you should not defer treatment unnecessarily and
pcsslhly throw away your chances of obtaining a cvrew, but call and consult
