TART A WAR ON ROAD . HOI SE
Effort to Compel Proprietress to Tar
Residents of tho western part of the city
are still up In arms over the alleged ro.Td
house on North Twenty-seventh street.
Falling, so they allege, to get any relief
from the city or county authorities, they
have taken the matter ltit" their own
hands. Yesterday a notice signed by A. C.
Killer, president of the West Council Bluffs
Improvement club; T. C. Kern and Henry
Smith, residents and property owners of
the west end, was served on County Aud
itor Chuyne, calling his attention to the fact
that the city assessor had omitted to list
Mary E. Noble, the - alleged proprietress
end occupant of the house, among thoae
selling liquor and consequently liable for
the mulct law. The notice requires the
county auditor to place Mrs. Noble's name
on the books of the county treasurer for
tho mulct tax of S'iO0 per annum.
It was announced a few weeks ago that
the I .aw Enforcement league had decided
to Insist on the city and county authorities
roqjlrln? the payment of the mulct tax
by persons conducting houses of 111 repute
and other similar resorts, where liquor was
sold, but nothing has apparently been done
In th's direction so far. The action yes
terday of the west .enders was the first
move In this direction and It was stated
that If Mrs. Noble is required to pay the
mulct tax all other places where liquor la
sold will be forced to do the same.

DES MOINES. June 26.-(Spc clal.) Judge
8. F. Prouty today withdrew his petition
for a recount of the votes In Bloomfleld
township In this county, but Is maintain
ing his petition -to have the entire vote of
the township thrown out on the ground
that votes were Illegally cast In the pre
cinct and that the precinct was kept open
after the legal time for closing the polls.
On this precinct and the action of the
supervisors depends the fight between Hull
and Trouty for the congressional nomina
tion In the Seventh district outside of
Dallas county which Is tied up In the
courts. If Prouty can get Bloomfleld
township thrown out, he will have the
nomination wlthout,any returns In Dallas
and taking the Dallas returns as first sent
In. If he can also get a recount In Dallas,
he claims he will have a gait) of seventy
five votes there.
The contest over the Bloomfleld town
ship vote Is the last of the Polk county
contest. In that township Hull received
ninety votes and "Prouty fifty-two, giving
Hull a majority of forty-eight In that pre
cinct. Taking the entire Seventh district.
Including the first reports from Dallas
county, Hull has a plurality of forty-one
In the district. If Bloomfleld Is thrown
out, his entire majority Is wiped out and
the contest will be at an end. If the super
visors refuse to throw out Bloomfleld,
Prouty still has a chance of getting a re
count In Dallas county, where he claims
he will gain seventy-five votes.
