The body of Mrs. Clarence E. Btallard,
who was drowned at Lake Manawa during
the atortn Saturday nlht, had not been
rcovertd up to a late hour Sunday night.
The work of dragging the lake for the
body was begun at 4 o'clock yesterday
morning and with short Intprvals waa
continued late last night, but without re
ult. Every part of the lake between the
Kuraaal and the landing on the north shore
waa thoroughly dragged. The men em
ployed In dragging the lake worked some
what at a disadvantage, as Mr. Btallard
waa unable to state exactly where the boat
he and his wife were In capetsed.
C. C. Wolfe of Panorah, la., and the
Misses Verda Snyder and Edith Btallard,
a sister-in-law of the drowned woman,
who were at the lake with, Mr. and Mrs.
Clarence Btallard, but occupied another
boat, had a narrow escape from meeting
the same fate as Mrs. Btallard. They, like
Mr. and Mrs. Stailaru, had started from
the Kurnaat to row back across the lake
when the storm overtook them. Their
boat was carried by the wind to the south
eastern part of the lake, where It waa
finely capsized. Mr. Wolfe and his two
young women companions clung to a float
ing log until their cries brought assistance.
Aeronaut Andrews, who makes the balloon
ascensions at the resort. Thomas Kendall
and a young man named Miller braved the
wind and heavy waves and rowed to the

electrocuted while at work yesterday after-
I noon at the resort. As It was he received
I a severe shock and his clothing on ono
side, including his shoe, was torn off him.
The storm Saturday night had caused a
short circuit and Erlckson with other line
men was trying to locate the seat of the
trouble. He turned off a switch and posted
a notice on It warning the other men not
j to touch It, as he waa working on the
wlrea leading from it. wnue cricKaon nnu
a wire in his hand some one turned on the
switch and the full current passed through
Erlckson's body. He happened, however,
to be fortunately standing on dry ground
' and thua escaped death. He was thrown
violently to the ground, rendered uncon
scious, while all of his clothing on one
side of his body was torn into ribbons.
Erlckson was removed as soon as possible
to the Tremont house, where he rooms,
and given medical attention. Late last
evening he waa reported to be doing nicely
and will probably be able to be out In a few

ASSESSMENT OF RAILROADS
Executive Council Finishes Compiling
Statistics of Iowa Lines.
MACRAE EAISES NEW TOINT
Distribution of Higher
titles Allows Hoada
Lower Hates on Mi
(From a Staff Correspendent.)
DEB MOINES. July 8.-(Speelal.)-A. H.
Davison, secretary of the executive coun
cil, has Just completed and sent to the
stnto printer a compilation of statistics
relative to the assessment of the railroads
of Iowa. Branch lines are combined Into
the systems so as to aliow the actual in
crease In the assessments. That in, tho
total assessment of the lines now making
t:p a system Is given for the years whon
they weru sepurate lines, which enabl'-'S
tho executive council by comparisons to
see what the gross earnings have been
over a period of years.
In the course of years since the first
assessment of the railroads by the ex
ecutive council hundreds of little branch
lines have been consolidated, and even
big systems, such as the Burlington, Ce
dar Rapids & Northern and the Chicago,
Rock Island Pacific, have been consoli
dated. The exeoutlve council has had
before It the statistics of gross and not
earnings, mileage, assessment and the
like of these systems separate up to the
time they consolidated. Then from that
time on they have the figures for the con
Comparisons could not therefore be
made. Now with the Information com
piled by Becretary Davison for the first
time the statistics of these lines be
fore the consolidation is combined for &
period of many years back so as to e
able the council to make the comparison.
This system of cards Is now In the
hands of the state printer and will be
competed ready for the council on Mon
day when It begins the assessment of
the railroads. The cards show that for
a period of many years the railroads have
paid a less rate of taxes on their assess
ment than other property. This Is due
to the fact that In the towns and cities
the railroad property Is more valuable
In proportion to that In the country, while
the mileage In the municipal corporations
la much less than that In the rural die
1 trlcts, though in the assessment as re
quired by the present laws part of this
higher city value Is proportioned to the
country and gets me country rmc ui voc
ation, which Is lower than In the cities.
It Is understood that Mayor Macrae of
Council Bluffs will appear before the
council Monday when the hearings open
and with other city officials will be pre
pared to argue this question before the
executive council. They claim that the
assessment under the present plan robe
the cities of some of their taxation. It
la not unlikely that this question will be
of some prominence before the next legis
lature, which is likely to devote consider
able of Its time and attention to the taxa
Start Hearings Tomorrow.
Governor Cummins will reach the city
early tomorrow morning from Michigan
to attend the hearings by the executive
council on the question of railroad assess
ments. ' The entire council will be present
when the hearings open. The hearings
will last the entire week, the first of the
week being taken up with the railroad
hearings and the latter part of the week
on express and telephone and telegraph
Iowa has kept the railroad attorney's
busy this year. Starting In tho first of
the year they were busy attending rail
road committee hearings before the com
mittees of the legislature. Then followed
In short order the railroad commission
hearings on rates, and now comes the
executive council hearings on the assess
ment of the rallroada. and following this
! the railroad commission will have some
j more hearings of one kind and another.
Some Interest will be attached to the
matter of the assessment of the telegraph
I companies. Just before the legislature ad
journed It la claimed, the telegraph com
! panies raised tlelr rates. The companies
claim they did not raise their rates, but
only readjusted them, raising some but
lowering others. Since the telegraph com
panies are assessed on their earnings as
well as their equipment, their assessment
will be watched, though the Increase In
rates will not have any effect on the re
ports for this year as these reports cover
the year ending December 31, 1904.
Federation After Lim.
The State Federation of Labor of Iowa
will put Its most strenuous efforts on two
Dartlcular things In the line of legislation
in the future. It will work for the aboil-
tlon of convict labor In Iowa and In con-
nectlon with the American Federation of
Labor to get a national law prohibiting
articles made by convict labor being
shipped In Interstate commerce.
The other thing It will work for will
be a law regulating the matter of con
tributory negligence, eo that the Injured
may receive a verdict proportionate to the
amount of hie negligence. Under the pres-.
ent law. If a workman contributes In the!
slightest degree to "his own Injury, even
though the company or corporation for
which he works Is chiefly responsible, he
will recover nothing. The federation
clalma that this is unjust and that while
a workman's negligence may have con
tributed towards his injury, if the cor
poration la partly responsible for the In
Jury lt ehould be held for part of the dam
An attempt waa made to get a bill
through the legislature last winter that
embodied this idea. The bill wee not well
prepared and some of the worklngmen's
organisations were afraid of lt. They were
afraid lt would repeal the Temple amend
ment In relation to signing away the work
Ingman's right to sue the company. It Is
proposed by the time the next legislature
meets to have a bill prepared right, that
will embody only the Idea of awarding a
verdict of damages in proportion to the
negligence of the company and the work
man. The railway trainmen's organisa
tions will favor the bill and tha Iowa Fed
eration of Labor will work with them. It
Is possible that the first bill may apply
only to trainmen, but ultimately, the elm
and 'object will be to apply the eame law
to all worklngrnen, and corporations em
Canned KrnU la Higher. ,
Iowa Is being hard hit by the short sgo
In the fruit crop in California and other
fruit countries. The State Board of Control
la Just now busy closing contracts for the
canned goods supply for a twelve months
and the membere of the board have discov
ered by making these contracts that the
fruit crop Is short and that the state muat
pay much more this year than heretofore.
Last year the board contracted for corn
at a little over 40 cents a dosen cans. This
year It is having to pay over SO cents. About
the best bid la 4 cents. One Iowa firm last
year couldn't get more than 41 oenta for its
eora and it held tbe entire output of tbe
factory and this yesr did not plant an acre
of sweet corn and Is not preparing to can
any. It has been offered 6i cents for its IM
product and is holding it for 83 cents.
Some years ago the hoar could buy all
the prunes it wanted for T cents, and they
were thf, best, for the lxrd never consid
ers a bid on anything but the best. Now It
Is bel'ig asked to pay 27 cents.
Everything is up and nearly everything
Is up In about this proportion. This in
crease In the price of supplies, which runs
to other things as well as to canned goods.
Is bothering the Sliite Board of Control
considerably In making the state apintrl
atlons reach the entire distance they are
Intended for. The monthly rr capita al
lowance at a few of the Institutions has
been increased by the legislature, but only
at a few. For the most part the per capita
support Is the samo as It was a number of
years ago, when the prices of supplies were
very much lower than they are at this time.
Des Moines Seeds a Brldare.
"Dcs Moines has plenty of things to do,"
that it is not likely to run out of things
wherewith to keep before the people the
motto that "Des Moines Does Things." One
of these things to do Is the question of
transportation to South Des Moines and the
fort. The only means of reaching South
Des Moines from the principal business cen
ter of the city Is by wsy of a woodon
bridge that years and years sgo crossed the
Des Moines river on Walnut street. A steel
bridge was built across Walnut and the old
wooden bridge waa moved to First street
across the Coon river. There la no approach
to the bridge at the north end. That Is to.
say, the bridge 'stands on private ground.
But the teams and street car companies
use It. The bridge was condemned long ago.
Now and then public Indignation gets strong
and the city condemns the bridge all over
agarn and It Is closed. The next morning
the street car company has to get to the
South Bide, so It has the bridge opened
Some years ago before Captain Hull got
the army post It waa promised that there
would be a viaduct across the railroad
tracks and an adequate way of reaching
the fort. The business men started out to
get the viaduct. It wouldn't be hard for
the reason that the railroads would have
to build It. But when they got Into the
machinery of doing It, it was found that
the city would have to attend to the ap
proaches and that the railroads only had
to build what was above their right-of-way.
Then some legislation was necessary
to get the right for the city to build its
Finally after two or three years It was
found out that the plans for the viaduct
were Inadequate, the viaduct was not high
enough to let a train pass under. Then the
entire thing had to be begun all over again.
It seems to be kind of forgotten lately.
Several thousand people live in South Des
Moines and when they come to the busi
ness center of town It Is over a wooden
bridge In the last stages of decay, delapl
dated, with many boards and a big section
of the roof off and liable any day to fall

A REMARKABLE LETTER.
Pt. Louis, June 25th, 190V.
Messrs. Wertheimer-S warts Shoe Co.,
St. Louis, Mo.
My Dear Sirs:
I recently sold out all of my Arkansas
interests and, after July 1st, I w 111 be down
In Tennessee as a general salesman for
Ely & Walker Dry Goods Co., but before
I go I wnnt to secure myself against
another attack of the King of all Diseases
rheumatism, and I believe I can do this
by wearing another pair of Dr. John
Wilson Gihbs' "ELECTRICURA" shoes.
About one year ago, I was considered by
friends and several physicians, a hopeless
victim of rheumatism. I was reduced In
flesh more than one-third and my nervous
system was a complete wreck. I spent
about three months at Hot Springs, Ark.,
and eight weeks at Marlln Hot Welts,
Texas, taking in all one hundred and six
teen hot vapor baths; I also spent eight
weeks at Mineral Wells, Texas, drinking
from fifteen to fifty-five pints of the cele
brated "Crazy Well" water. I returned
from there to Little Rock, Ark., and undor
one of the most eminent physicians In the
country, I took a course of Goatlymph.
After all this I was able to walk with
out my crutches, but was very weak and
suffered quite a good deal with my
One of your representatives, Mr. Jesse
Prewltt, who Is quite a warm friend of
mine. Insisted upon my trying a pair of
Dr. John Wilson Glbbs' "ELECTRICURA
shoes. I was skeptical at first for I had
had submitted to me by letter, phon-
telegraph, and through the intervention
of friends, several thousands of "sure
cures" for rheumatism, and I had sworn
oft ever trying anything else that was to
take or rub, but as Mr. Prewltt assured
me that if these shoes did not give sat
isfactory wear aside from their curative
powers, he would pay for them, I con
sented to try a pair. I got well and don't
know .whether the shoes cured me or not.
but I haven't a sign of rhumatlsm and
have gained back my lost strength and
flesh, and I think so well of the shoes that
I Intend to wear them as long as I can
Anybody who wants to know what I
think about "ELECTRICURA" shoes,
you may respectfully refer them to me,
and I will take pleasure In stating what
they have done for me.
Will you please let me know where I
can get a pair of these shoes here in the
city of St. LoulsT
' Yours very truly,
FRED D. WHITING.
