Health Officer Threaten! to Shut Off
Water Under Certain Conditions.
NOT LIKELY TO DO IT, HOWEVER
Aathorlty to Do So Is Questioned 4
In Addition the City's Water Sap
ply la Believed to Be of
If an analysis discloses that the water
contains disease germs, Dr. C. H. Bower,
the city "health officer" and medical ad
vlaor to the local Board of Health, haa an
nounced that he will close the plant of the
Council Bluffs City Water Works company
until the evil Is remedied or all the germa
are eradicated or exterminated.
Dr. Bower, haa, as ho aays. In accordance
with the state law, taken sample of the
water furnished lta patrona by the water
company and forwarded It to Prof. Kenney,
state chemist at Drake university, to have
a sanitary analysis made of It.
The unnouneement of Dr. Bower that
he might possibly find it necessary to shut
off the water supply of the city has not
occaaloned any widespread alarm as It
might be though it would. In the first
place city officials question the right of
Dr. Bower to take any auch arbitrary
action and doubt If he would be able to
enforce any such order as to shut off the
water supply and leave the city helpless
In case of fire. In the second place the
water furnished by the waterworks com
pany is drawn from the Missouri river and
repeated testa of thla water have always
shown It to be particularly free from vege
table or other disease producing matter.
"I do not think It very judicious on the
part of Dr. Bower," aald a member of the
Board of Health yesterday "to make such
an announcement aa that he would close
the -water plant If germa were found In
the water. Such a statement Is calculated
to alarm people and arouse . suspicion In
their minds that the water they are In
the habit of using and have Used for
nearly thirty years. Is seething with dis
ease germs of the deadliest character. To
my mind, It would have been better for Dr.
Bower to have kept silent until the analysts
of the water la made and If the dlseaae
germs are. discovered,' it would then be
time to make the fact known and recom
mend some action by the Board of Health.
may not be fully conversant with the
law, but I doubt very much If Dr. Bower
on his own way, so could close the water
plant without "being so instructed by the
Board of Health."

No DredKlnaj of Creek.
It has been definitely decided that no
dredging will be done on Indian creek
this year, but the sediment In the channel
will have to be cleaned out again next
The only work being done at present
on the creek la to cut the weeds which
have overgrown the banks, especially on
that portion where the channel was
widened and deepened two- years ago
under the direction of Mr. Maloney. A
force of men is at present at work cut
ting the weeds and this has been done aa
far aa Fourteenth avenue. It Is expected
that It will require about tw6 weeks
more to complete the work to the mouth
of the creek.
Councilman McMillan, chairman of the
committee on health and sewers. In com
pany with City Engineer Etnyre, took a
trip yesterday morning along Indian creek
from Bryant atreet along Upper Broad
way, with a view of determining how
many dams would be necessary to pre
vent the high waters of the creek from
washing out the bed.
It Is proposed to construct a number of
rough dams at Intervals to form a series'
of catch basins for the mud that other
wise would be washed down the creek.
The construction of theae dams, the cost
of which would not be great, would. In
the opinion of City Engineer Etnyre, do
much to prevent the possibility of the
creek overflowing Its banks at Tenth,

REPUBLICANS ARE TO CONFER
State Chairman Pranke Sends Oat Call
for Meeting" at Dei Moines.
SENAT0RSHLP TO BE DISCUSSED
General Opinion Free Expression of
Opinion Will Tend to Clear the
Political Atmosphere In
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, Aug. 12. -(Special. )
Carle Franke, chairman of the republican
state committee, today announced that
there would be a general conference in
this city August 25 of all republicans of
the elate, and especially of the state,
congressional, legislative and Judicial
nominees on the republican ticket "to get
the expression of party leader on matters
of recent development In political affairs."
Mr. Franke is today sending out to all
the state, congressional, legislative and
Judicial nominees Invitations to the con
ference and to all other republicans who
care to attend the conference the Invita
tion' Is sent in a general invitation
through the press. It la understood that
at this conference there will be discussion
of the conditions of the party and that the
United States senatorshlp will be dis
cussed at that time. Many of the nominees
to the legislature are menvbera of the leg
islature now and It Is believed that by
this method a good expression of the
party wishes can be had.
Special invitations to the editor of
republican newspapers are also being sent
out today to attend the conference and
participate In the discussion.
The conference will come during State
fair week and will thus give those attend
ing the benefit of the excursion rates to
the State fair.
There is understood to be no program
to be sprung on the conference as to the
senatorshlp. It will be a free and open
discussion as to the senatorshlp as well
aa all other political affairs affecting the
Interests of the party. It haa been ar
gued by some that nothing should be
said on the senatorshlp for fear of caus
ing dissension. The view that most of
the leaders are now taking la that dis
sension will come more fey silence and
that a frank, open discussion by represen
tatives of all sides will do much to clear
the atmosphere. '
One of the leading newspapers of tho
state in an editorial claims that Cum
mins, Congressman Smith and Congress
man Haugen are known to be candidates
for the position. It Is believed, however,
that the statement is made on well
grounded supposition more than on in
formation. Indict Carl Clemens,
Carl Clemens Is under indictment by the
Polk county grand jury, and application
was made today to Governor Cummins for
a requisition for his return to Iowa. The
charge Is assault with intent to commit
manslaughter, and Is based on an attack
that he made on Clarence Dosh of Stuart,
Ia., In the state house about a year ago.
Governor Cummins refused to Issue the
requisition for the present because it was
shown that Clemens Is under bond to re
turn to the atate on a similar charge filed
In police court here, and that he Is willing
to return and stand trial at any time.
The assault. grew out of a college ro
mance which Dosh claims to have for
gotten. Dosh and Mrs. Clemens were col
legemates In their younger days. , Com
mencement day aeparated them and the
little love affair between them was quickly
forgotten. . But Mrs. Clemens retained one
of Dosh's love notes. Mrs. Clemens now
Is the wife of Carl Clemens, a wealthy Sno.
homish, Wash., lunmber merchant, and her
husband, stumbling onto the note, thought
It of recent origin and became Jealous
It Is claimed that his Jealousy caused him
to lay a trap for Dosh. Signing his wife's
name he wrote to Dosh, seeking to make
an appointment at the Elliott hotel In this
city. Dosh did not recognlie the married
name of Mrs. Clemens and was mystified
by the note. He did not go to the Elliott
hotel, though a room was reserved there
for Mrs. Clemens. Mrs. Clemens was not
In town and did not know of the affair.
Accidentally meeting In the state house,
Clemens attacked Dosh, and later on the
way down town attacked him again and
knocked him down. Doah was quite badly
Injured and for some time was confined In
one of the hospitals here. Clemens In his
college days was a noted foot ball player.
Money Plllns; Up
None of the public service corporations
of Des Moines are drawing any compen
sation from the city treasury for service
to the city. The city reduced the rates on
all of them and the refusal of the corpora
tions to draw the reduced rate is under
stood to Indicate a fight in the courts
against the reduction. The Light company
had a contract with the city for Wela-
bach burners that, was more than tho
ordinance allowed. The new council re
fused to recognize a contract for a price
not fixed by ordinance. The city today
served notice on the Water company that
It was to file Its report of earnings with
the city at once or the city will publish
the new ordinance reducing Its rates

HEAVY RAIN IN CHICAGO
All Basements Inalde Loop Flooded
and Damns by Lightning; Is
CHICAGO, Aug. 12. Chicago was half
flooded tonight by a heavy electrical and
rain storm, the first good soaking rain which
this vicinity has received In weeks. Light
ning struck In many places within the city
limits. In some cases deatroylns; electric feed
cables and cutting off light and power. In
the downtown district practically every
basement within the Loop was flooded,
sewers being inadequate for the rush of
Guests at the Auditorium Annex hotel
were frightened and the lobbies and cafes
on the ground floor were flooded by the
breaking of a skylight. A heavy drain
pipe also gave way and allowed a stream
of water to gush into the offices of the
establishment. Moat of the basement cafes
nd restaurants In the Loop district were
abandoned by their occupants because of
the water, which flowed Into the places
from the streets or backed up through the
sewers. The storm lasted bdoui two nours.
All the street lights from the river to
Twelfth street on the south were put out
of commission, and those thoroughfares
which did not contain a thorough sprink
ling of all-night restaurants, were In dark
ness. The worst feature of the storm was
the damago to electric cables. It Is re
ported that the entire lighting and power
system operated by the drainage system
through streets was heavily damaged, and
that the city bridges are likely to be with
out motive power tomorrow. In this case
no boats can enter or leave the Chicago
ACTIVITY AT OYSTER BAY
Fact That Execntlve Clerks Work
Far Into the Mabt Attracta
OYSTER BAY, N. Y., Aug. 12.-The un
usual activity at the government executive
officea here, which has been apparent for
almost a week, both during the day and at
nulght, haa become the subject of consider
able curiosity. Acting Secretary to the
Prealdent Rudolph Forster and the force of
clerks under him recently have been the
hardest worked men in the village. Their
duties begin early and at times have con
tinued far Into the night. The executive
office ataff has been augmented by the ar
rival of two clerks from the Washington
Secret a. y Forster makes two trips almost
every day to Sagamore Hill and each time
upon his return brings with him a mase
of correspondence. His first visit, made In
the forenoon, usually consumes two or three
hours. Recently he began making the night
trip, leaving the offices about 9 p. m. and
remalr-ing with the president frequently as
late as midnight and aometlmes after that
hour. Just what is the occaalon of this
extraordinary activity cannot be learned.
Inquiries are met with the reply, "Official
business " It Is believed not improbable,
however, that political matters form a con
siderable part of the business transacted.
Not a single official visitor has been, at
Sagamore Hill since Friday and no state
ment of any kind has come from the presi
dent In several days. The president was at
home all of today.
SEVERE STORM AT FORT RILEY
Headquarters Tent Blown Down and
'uuilrr of Soldiers Knocked Down
JCNCTION CITY. Kan., Aug. 12.-The
camp of Instruction at Fort Relley was
dr.Mi.'hed with a hard rain tonight. During
the storm many tents were blown down
and a flood of water raced down from the
hills to the north of the camp, running in
streams before the tents, stretching for
two miles along the Kaw river.
The headquarters' tent of Brigadier Gen
eral John B. Kerr, commanding the camp
of Instruction and the maneuvers, waa
struck by lightning. Several men were
knocked down and one was badly burned.
The federal troops fared worse than the
state troops, being nearer the river. All
oter the ramp the soldiers had to hold to
their tents to keep them from blowing
away. In some of the Infantry and ar
tillery camps the water was ankle deep.
