Board Makes Recommendations to the
City Cooncll.
The Board of Fir and Police Commis
sioners, which Inspected the fire department
houses a few days ago, haa completed lta
report, which embodies tecommendatlons
for repairs and improvements and for the
purchase of new horses and equipment
for the department. In its report, which
will be submitted to the city council at
Its meeting next Monday night, the board
makes the following recommendations:
That at No. 1 fire house, on account of
the now dangerous condition of the floor
In the sleeping rooms, the city furnish
lumber for a new floor, said floor to be
laid by the members of the department
ststioned at that house.
That at No. 3 fire house, the hose cart
in uee there be overhauled and repainted.
and that the stall-room be painted, the
city to furnish the paint and the men em
ployed at that house to do the work, w e
also find the two horses in use at this
house unfit by reason of age to perform
the services required of them, and should
be disposed of and replaced by suitable and
serviceable horses. Both are over 20 years
old and unfit for the hard runs which they
are oompelled to make from thla station.
No. 3 hone houne Is In as good shape
as so old a building in so deplorable a con
dition could possibly be expected to be In,
but we rnoet urgently recommend the ereo
tlon at once of a new central fire station.
Valuable property of the department, es
pecially In connection with the fire alarm
system, Is In constant Jeopardy by reason
of the present condition of this house,
which In liable to be blown down during
any severe storm and should be con
That at No. 4 hose house the bodv of
the hoee wagon be painted snd a Gales
burg block floor be laid back to the second
set of stalls, because the present floor is
worn out.
That a new bath tun re put in thla
house, for the reason that the present one
Is In so dilapidated a condition as to be
That the big truck at this house be dis-
red or. as wen as me Dig stove formerly
use there, as the room is needed.
We find No. 6 hose house In first class
condition and nothing needed at this house
at this time. ,
We also again want to call your honora
ble body' attention to this city's urgent
need of a. -new hook and ladder truck, the
present ladders being entirely too short
for present use of this department.
As the need for the compliance by you
of these recommendations Is Imperative, It
is to be hoped they will receive your early,
careful and favorable consideration.

Elmer Sage, living at 2025 Avenue B, waa
In police court yesterday morning on com
plaint of Mrs. Franklin Walkington, a
neighbor living at 2020 Avenue A, who
charged Sage with using loud and profane
language. The trouble started over chil
dren. Sage attempted to drive some chil
dren, whom he said were annoying htm,
out of his yard when Mrs. Sage interfered.
Sage resented" the Interference and used
language which Mrs. Walkington told the
court was "simply fierce." Judge Snyder
fined Sage $5, but later remitted the pen
alty on payment of costs. Mrs. Walking
ton did not escape entirely free, as Judge
Snyder told her she was to blame for
"starting in" on Sage when the latter was
evidently in the heat of anger over the
annoyance from the children. '

Extraordinarily Interesting Display
for Easter Season at LenTert's.
One of the prettiest and most attractive
window displays ever seen In Council Bluffs
Is that shown by the Leffert Jewelry store
for the Easter season. In the eaat window
Is ''properly laid the necessary silver and
glass for a ten-course dinner. A rich back
ground of black velvet is touched up with
real Cluny centerpiece and dollies. Bride's
roses, asparagua ferns and pink candle
shades complete the decorations. Place
carda are dainty water color sketches. The
theme of tho whole Is Illustrated by a
water color ketch of "The Girl," "At
Home," "waiting for that little piece of
sliver to add to her collection," with the
hint unobtrusively, tucked away In a cor
ner to "take home a spoon or a fork."
The display Is more than a mere advertise
ment. It Is a lesson In proper table lay
ing. . It is unuaual'.y interesting In Its real
ity. The west window Is purely Easter. A
feature Is a large purple cross on the rich
white background. A chick hitched to a
wagonload of wedding rings gives life to
the scene. It Is understood that this chick
has Just arrived for the aprlng weddings
with Its precious load of golden bonds.
This window exhibits an almost endless
variety of suitable and desirable articles
for Easter gifts.

Railroad Promoters Rosy.
SHENANDOAH, la.. April 18. (8peolal.)
Word has been received here that the
new railroad, which has been talked of
between Rockport, Mo., and this city is
coming to a definite head. The Rockport,
Shenandoah and Dea Molnea Railroad com
pany has Just been organized under the
laws of Maine and it has filed its certifi
cate of organization with the secretary of
state in Augusta. The capital stock au
thorized is $1,000,000 common and $250.ono
preferred, and the company proposes to
own and construct and operate railroads
and other transportation systems with ter
minals, telephones and all other necessary
or desirable auxiliaries. Inasmuch as the
new railroad only costs $7S0,0A it was Im
possible to Incorporate under the . laws
of Iowa, and have any 'watered
stock, . and this Is one of tho reasons
probably why the incorporation went
to Maine, which ' state is so liberal
with these organizations. Liberal dona
tions for this railroad have been made be
tween people living in Missouri and north
of Rockport. $10.CX has been secured by
the people of Rockport and it Is likely that
the people of Shenandoah will be called
on before long to vote on the tax proposi
tion by this new road.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April 18. (Special. ) A. V.
Coates, the Iowa member of the national
committee of the prohibition party, who
was in Des Moines today, said that nearly
all of the prohibitlonlsta of Iowa would ask
for a tepubllcan ballot at the primary elec
tion on June 3 and would vot for John J.
Hamilton for governor, but that they would
vote the prohibition ticket In November.
Mr. Coates returned to Des Moines after
several months' absence from the state with
tils family on his stock ranch in Kansas.
He will remain In Des Moines from thl on
till the campaign 1 over.
The prohibition party has the nomination
paper for it several candidates rea1y
for filing with the secretary of state and
they probably will be filed tomorrow or
Monday, There are three prohibition candi
dates for governor, but Mr. Coates says the
party at the primary will get but a very
few votes. Asked as to Hamilton, who Is
a candidate on the republican ticket, run
ning on a self-made prohibition platform,
he said:
"Mr. Hamilton will get about 15.000 votes
and half of them will be prohibitionists.
Many of the prohibitionists have affiliated
with the republicans more or less for year.
The prohibition party wilt poll but a small
