EXPERT IS EXPECTED SOON
St. Louis Engineer Will Look Over
Water Works Plant
IDENTITY STILL KEPT SECRET
rabllahlngc Book on Water Worka
Provea HI Task and Another
Fspert Will goon Da
The expert hydraulic engineer from St.
Louis, who baa been secured by the city
council committee on water work! to check
over the Diana and specifications for the I
proposed municipal water worka plant
drawn by City Engineer En tyre and suggest
uch changes aa he may deem expedient,
la expected to be here Friday.
The Identity of the expert la still a secret
and the reason for this secrecy waa ex
plained yeaterday by Councilman Morgan,
one of the leaders In the movement for
municipal ownership, Vho aald: "The ob
ject In keeping the Identity of the expert
engineer a secret for the present Is, I be
lieve, to Insure an unbiased opinion from
him, free from the contaminating influences
which might be brought to bear upon him
by those whose Interest It would be to de
feat the municipal ownership movement."
Councilman Jensen, chairman of the wator
works committee, while declining to make
public the name of the expert, said: "When
Mr. Bruce came here from New York on
behalf of the itockholderi of the water
works company he suggested that the com
pany would be willing to have the same
expert employed by the city examine the
company's plant and suggest what Improve
ments and extension were necessary to
bring the system up to date and up to the
needs of the city. I objected to thli and
said that If our expert were employed by
the water works company his connection
with the city would cease."
Mr. Jensen added further that as soon as
the expert had submitted to the committee
a written opinion, It waa probable that his
name would be made known.
Mr. Jensen's committee has not yet begun
work on the book dealing with the water
work question which Is to be published
for the benefit and elucidation of the voters.
It la laid that the committee li begin
ning to reallia that It has undertaken
quite a tank and Is looking around for
some competent person who Is an advocate
of municipal ownership to act ai edltor-ln-chlef
of the proposed treatise. In accord
ance with the suggestion of Mr. Jensen's
committee the work Is to be entitled, "A,
Statement of the Water Works Situation
In the City of Council Bluffs, Published
by Authority of the City Council."
Councilman Skodsholm, whose name has
been suggested In connection with the po
sition of editor-ln-chlef of the proposed
treatise, said yesterday that the volume
would be no small affair. "It wilt not
, be merely a pamphlet, but will contain at
least ISO pages of printed matter and pos
sibly a good deal more," declared Mr.

Democrat Finds He Doea ot Want to
Make Race for Judge.
Attorney Frank Tamlslea of Missouri
Valley has finally decided that he cannot
accept the nomination for Judge of the
district bench, recently accorded him by
the democratic convention of the Fif
teenth Judicial district. Mr. Tamlslea has
notified W. H. Schurx of this city of hla
decision not to be a candidate for We
Mr. Tamlslea was not present at the
convention and his nomination was
brought about by W. H. Schun after A
determined effort had been made by Lew
Oenung of Glenwood to have the conven
tion endorse E. B. Woodruff of Mills
county, the republican candidate for Juaga
of the district court. In presenting Mr.
Tamlslea's name to the convention Mr.
Schurs assured the convention that the
Missouri Valley attorney would not only
accept, but would make a campaign.
The democratic Judicial convention, how
ever, after nominating Mr. Tamlslea took
the precaution to adopt a resolution au
thorizing the Judicial committee to name
another candidate If for any reason Mr.
Tamlslea would be unable to accept the
nomination. It is now up to the com
mittee to find someone willing to be of
fered up as a sacrifice In order that the
party shall not be without a condldate for
the district bench.
S. B. Wadaworth of this city, although
he In fists he Is r.ot a member of the
body, Is apparently still chairman of Un
democratic Judicial committee. His term
would expire this year and the Judicial
convention ' authorlxed Mr. Tamlslea tu
name the chairman and secretary of the
committee, but as he haa after due de
liberation declined to accept the nomina
tion he haa not given the other matter

In accordance with the request of Mayor
Maloney, the executive committee of the
Commercial club and the officer of the
Council Bluffs Street Fair and Carnival
company will meet this afternoon at t-ZO
o'clock In the rooms of the Commercial
cluo to decide whether It will be advisable
or not to attempt to hold a street fair and
carnival thla year.
There seems to be little question but that
the people generally want the street fair
and carnival again, but It Is a question
whether it la not too lute Id the season now
to make preparations for one. Some of the
business men who have, been active In the
management of the street fair and carnival
In former years are not rjow willing, it Is
aid, to take the Initiative la getting up
another this year. B. M. Sargent, one of
the officers of the Council bluffs Street
Fair and Carnival company, aald yesterday:
"It would take an Immense amount of work
and It la rather late In the day to begin
now. We have arwaya started long before
thla time. If, however, a street fair should
be decided upon, I believe all the members
of the old company would be willing to
help, but It la doubtful If the old company
will take the Initiative."

Mr. Walden at once notified the police,

why he should have been made the victim
of such an outrage. To the police he said

Teachers Take Examination.
Seventy-five appllcanta for teachers' cer

county superintendent of schools. The ex
amination which was begun Wednesday is
being conducted In the high school and
Superintendent Jackson Is being aaslsted
by Prof. J. C. Grason and Miss Clara
Meyers of the high school faculty. Many
of those who failed In the previous ex
amination have returned to try again, and
among the applicants are a number of
holders of certificates who want to raise
their grades. Several graduates of the
high achool are amongst those taking the
examination. The examination will last
over Friday, and will be the last before
the" opening of school In September. The
next examination will not take place until

rvy Theft on Train.
The police recovered yesterday a leather
suit case which had been stolen late Tues
day night from a Rock Island passenger
train. The suit case, which had been cut
open, was found In the back yard of George
Lueka, 60 Sixteenth avenue, about a block
from the Rock Island depot, where It had
evidently been thrown by the thief. The
theft was one of the nerviest ever re
ported to the police. The thief clinging
to the side of the train as It pulled out
of the depot reached through an open
window, seised the suit case, which Its
owner had placed on a seat, threw it to
the ground and then dropped off the car.
The owner had the train stoppod and re
turning to the depot telephoned the police.
He could not, however, be found later.

CONFERENCE AT OYSTER BAY
President Dlac-usaes Political Situa
tion In New York and
OYSTETt BAY, N. Y.. July 30. "President
Roosevelt Is very much pleased with the
present situation of thi country In gen
eral," laid one of the participants In the
conference at Sagamore Hill thla after
noon as he waa about to depart from
Oyster Bay. He explained that the presi
dent Is taWIng nothing for granted and Is
anxious to see the party everywhere work
ing Its hardest for the election of Judge
For over three hours today the presi
dent was In conference with Timothy L
Woodruff, chairman of the NewYork state
republican committee, and Francii B.
Loomls of Ohio. The president's secretary,
William Loeb, Jr., wai also present.
The conference with the president began
before luncheon and continued until 3:46
o'clock. The president -entertained them
at luncheon, Henry B. Needham, a maga
zine writer, and Secretary, Loeb Joining.
The general political situation In the en
tire country was discussed by the president
and his visitors. Very little more than
this could be learned after the conference
was over. Mr. Woodruff said they had
talked over the national political situation
and discussed the state situation only so
far as It had a bearing on the national
situation. He said that , the candidacy of
Governor Hughes for renomlnatlon was
tnlked over the same as other possible
candidates for nomination. The president
had told him, he said, that he would not
Interfere In local politics. Mr. Woodruff
declared that he had not come to Oyster
Bay to talk with the president regarding
the candidacy of Governor Hughei. He
expected to see the president often dur
ing the summer, but at present had no
definite engagement for a future date. He
declined to discuss with the newspaper
men the situation In New York state.
Mr. Loomls said' he had been asked to
come to Oyster Bay to talk over the na
tional situation with the president. He had
Informed Mr. Roosevelt regarding the situa
tion In his home state, Ohio. He believed
the outlook was very favorable. Mr.
Loomls Is one of the American commis
sioners to the Japanese exposition at Toklo.
He said he would leave for Japan In Sep
tember by way of San Francisco. On the
way he will stop at the Hawaiian Islands
In order to Interest the Hawallana In the
exposition. The president had talked with
him also on the Venezuelan situation, said
Mr. ioomls. .As minister to Venezuela for
three yean Mr. Loomli became well ac
qualnted with President Castro and his
methods. He said It seemed very much
as if Venezuela was looking for trouble
but did sot know of any contemplated
move on the pari of the United States to
take definite action In regard to Vene
zuela. He could not understand why Presi
dent Castro was antagonizing so many
foreign countries. Castro, he said, Is very
cunning, but not cunning enough to escape
punishment from these countries.
Secretary Loeb would say nothing on the
NEW YORK. July 28. Chairman Tim
othy L. Woodruff of the republican slate
committee, who spent this afternoon with
the pre fluent at Oyster Fay, declared on
his return to the city tonight that tho
president would not interfere with the state
campaign, and that he also understood that
Judge Taft would not interfere. As for the
state committee, he said, he promised that
the national commttee would not Inter
fere, and that the nominee for governor
would be selected by the republican state
convention, which will probably meet
Saratoga Springs, Monday, September It-
Mr. Woodruff explained at state headquar

At midnight the mob, which in the mean
time had been reinforced by many resi

another attack on the Jail. The sheriff and

NORTHERN PACIFIC FINANCES
State of Minnesota Charges that Syn
dicate Made Enormous
ST. PAUL. July 30. That J. P. Morgan
and others In the syndicate that reorgan
ized the Northern Pacific In 1899 made a
profit of $22,202,333 was what the attorneys
for the stale attempted to establish yester
day In the Minnesota rate hearing. The at
torneys for the railroad, however, con
tended that these figures represent the par
value of the stock Involved and that the
stock at that time was not worth par. They
further contend that the question . of
whether J. P. Morgan & Co. 'made a large
fee In connection with the reorganization
has nothing to do with what the Northern
Pacific railway Is worth today. It Is on
the present worth that they expect to earn
an adequate return.
T. D. O'Brien, special counsel for the
state, took up the matter In his cross-ex
amination of H. A. Gray, comptroller of
the Northern Pacific. Mr. Gray contended
that the reorganization was perfected by
calling In the stock of the old company In
he hands of the public and Issuing the new
stock upon the payment by the stockhold
ers of an assessment of $10 on preferred
stock and $15 on common. Not all the old
stockholders were willing to pay tholo as
sessments, so the syndicate paid them and
took over the stock. Under one paragraph
of the agreement, the syndicate received
19,973,1R0 In cash for handling $106,215,706 of
tho company's money and preferred stock
and mortgage bonds. Under another para
graph of the agreement the syndicate was
puid 6i per cent in cash for the sale of
another consignment of stock and bonds.
The amount received by the syndicate on
Wils transaction was placed at nearly $3,CO0.-
OuO, bringing the total receipts of the syn
dicate managers, according to the testi
mony, up to $117,904,253. while they turned
