the 18-months-old daughter of Mr. and

HOUSING CREEK REFUGEES
Tw Hundred nd Fifty Quartered at
the Auditorium.
PROBLEM FOB CITY OFFICIALS
Give, flapper aad Shelter a4 Will
Be Fed la Moralag, hat the Fa
ta re Coarse Is as Yet
Undecided.
About 250 Greek refugees from South
Omaha who had sought a haven of safety
in Council Bluffs were cared for Tuesday
night by the llce. They were quartered In
the Auditorium, which waa heated and
llgh'ted for their accommodation and In the
evening were provided with a supper of
hot coffee and bread.
Many of the Greek came to this side
of the river late Sunday night while the
other followed yesterday morning and at
Intervals until early In the afternoon the
police estimated that there were about 400
of them In the city.
What to do With aeveral hundred men,
the majority of whom had no place to stay,
waa a problem which at once presented
Itself to Major George H. Richmond, chief
of police. He decided that It would be out
of the question to permit thla number of
strange men to roam the streets, so detail
ing the entire day force of police on the
work he hud the Greeks rounded up and
escorted to police headquarters.
At one pool hall on West Broadway, near
the Northweatern tracks, which la con
ducted by Greeks, over 100 of the refugees
were found congregated. These aa a starter,
were eacorted to police headquarters and
then the officers went out to round up
more. From the other pool rooms run by
Greeks and from the railroad yarda nearly
J00 more refugees were gathered together
and taken to police headquarters where
they filled the large patrol room and the
two, floors of the city Jail.
The men were perfectly tractable and
evidently realized that the authorities of
this city were disposed to treat them prop
erly and wsre anxious to provide them
shelter for the time being. Through an In
terpreter Major Richmond made known to
the refugees that he could not permit them
to wander about the streets and that ho
would try to make arrangementa for some
place where they could atay over night.
After a conference with several of the
dlrectois of the Auditorium company ar
rangements were roade to house the
refugees in the large auditorium blinding
for the night. Fifty gallons of coffee were
ordered from a nearby restaurant and thla,'
together with plenty of bread, waa served
to the refugees at the auditorium at
o'clock last evening. Officers were placed
on guard at the building to ace to It that
the men remalred there.
After they had been gathered at police
headquarters a number of the refugees ex
pressed a desire to leave for other cities
where they had friends or where they ex
pected to secure work. About 100 In all
left In the afternoon and evening for Lin
coln, Plattamouth, Do Moines, Denlson and
Kansas City. Each batch was escorted to
the depots by members of the police force,
who stayed with them until they boarded
the trains. None of the refugees, aa far
as It could be learned, expressed any wish
to return to South Omaha.
But few of the refugees were armed, as
from the nearly 400 men taken to police
headquarters the officers secured but four
teen revolvers, twenty-one razors and two
dirk knives. One man, when asked If he
had any weapon concealed on his person,
produced a pair of curling tongs. Chief
Richmond stated last evening that the re
volvers would be confiscated.
The men will be provided with another
meal of coffee and bread at the auditorium,
but what disposition will be made of the
refugees after that Is a problem which the
city authorities will be called upon to solve
this morning.
Most of the Greeks seemed grateful for
the treatment accorded them, and although
nominally under guard at the auditorium,
were evidently perfectly willing to adapt
themselves to the circumstances. Among
the refugees were a number of youths,
some of them mere boys. Many of the
refugees were laborers from the packing
houses and railroad yards in South Omaha,
It Is said that most of them had more or
less money with them. A few among the
number were well dressed.
Late In the night prominent men among
the Greeks In Omaha came over to Council
Bluffs and arranged for board and lodging
at hotels for their fellow countrymen until
they could be permanently cared for else
where. Free Methodlat Revival Meeting.

COWVEttTIO OF RURAL CARRIERS
Good Road the Borden of Most of
the Addresses.
W. H. James of Council Bluffs was re
elected president of the Pottawattamie
County Rural letter Carriers' association
at the annua) convention of the orgnnlxa
tion held yesterday at Neola. Other officers
re-elected were William Betters of Dum
fries, first vice president; N. H. Chrlsman
of Neola, second vice president, and George
F. Hehle of Council Bluffs, secretary
treasurer. The following directors were elected: Car
rier Hibblta of Neola, for the three-year
term; Carrier Jacobsen of Council Bluffs,
for the two-year term; Carrier Overturf
of Shelby county, whose route Is mainly
In Pottawattamie county, for the one-year
term.
It was unanimously ' voted to hold the
convention In 1K10 In Council Bluffs and
February 52 waa fixed as the date for the
meeting.
Despite the Inclemency of the weather
there was. a. good attendance, there being
twenty-two rural mall carriers and several
postmasters from surrounding towns pres
ent. 1 The address of welcome was made by
William Felton of Neola and was responded
to by James Melsner of Council Bluffs.
J. G. Bardslcy, postmaster of Neola, de
livered an address on postal savings banks
and parcels post, commending both propo
sitions. M. A. Hubbell of Weston, who has the
distinction of being the only rural mall
carrier to make his route in an automobile,
spoke on "Rural Free. Delivery Service
With an Auto." Mr. Hubbell said that
automobiles would be practicable for such
service in the future when the country
roads should be brought to a higher de
gree of excellence, but admitted that the
automobile was a somewhat hazardous and
questionable proposition at present.
N. A. Crawford, a member of the Council
Bluffs newspaper fraternity, took the place
of Victor E. Bender on the program and
gave an Interesting talk cn "The Press and
Rural Delivery."
The balance of the meeting was devoted
to the discussion of "Good Roads," a strong
addiees on this subject, which Is paramount
with rural mall carriers, being made by
President James. L. G. Merrill, editor of
the Neola Gazette-Reporter, discussed the
question, "Rural Delivery Service and Good
Roads." He said that the agitation of this
question by the rural carriers had done
more than anything else to open the eyes
of the people to the necessity for Improve
ment in the condition of the public high
ways. Before the meeting adjourned Secretary
Hehle was presented with a handsome
fountain pen by the member.1.
MATTERS IX THE3 DISTRICT COIHT

nected with the appeal be borne by the
county.

OFF DAY FOR LEGISLATURE
Little Doing on Account of Bay Being
a Holiday.
ATTACK OH BOARD OF CONTROL
ramabiet laae4 by Fort Madison
Doctor After It Had Been flap
oe the Fight Had Been
Settled.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOIXK8. Feb. 2.-(8peclal.)-Owlng
to '.he day being a holiday little waa done
in the legislature. The house held a fore
noon session and the senate in the after
noon. A mild sensation was created by the fact
that a number of pamphlets made their
appearame among the members today,
coming from Fort Madison, In which Is
printed a series 'of savage attacks upon the
Stat Board of Control, and formal an
nouncement Is made of the candidacy of
ex-Warden Jones for the place on the state
board soon to be vacant or filled by reap
pointment. This pamphlet Is printed by
Dr. Neal, who was a disappointed applicant
for prison physician, and It consists largely
of the aeries of special articles which he
aent out with regard to the Fort Madlsbn
prison. It was supposed for a time that
the effort to effect a change In the state
board because of the troubles at the prison
would be given up, but it now appear that
the attack Is to be renewed.
State to Build Highways.
A bill introduced today contemplates that
the state Ittelf shall set a good example
in the matter of building highways at the
state farms and It requires tint the state
shall Improve the highways adjoining the
various state farms. The state has about
T.00O acrea at the Institutions. The work
done by the slate has been largely by the
inmates.
A bill by Jones contemplates the purchase
of an oil painting of Governor Carroll for
$450 and a photographic group of the mem
bers of the legislature for $150 to be placed
in the historical department.
Itesrnlate Railroad Employment.
A bill Introduced by Mr. Goodykoont
regulates the number of men In a train
crew. It provides that for every freight
train there shall be at least five persons
In the crew and if more than fifty car,
then six persons. A train crew for a pas
senger train shall consist of at least five
persons.
Gnlde Board Law No Good.
The house decided today that the law
requiring township trustees to put up guide
boards and signs at every mile Is of no
use, and changed the law so that the plac
ing of such signs shall be merely optional.
The statement was made that the law Is
not now enforced.
The house passed senate bills to regulate
the number of codes to be distributed free
In the state, to revise the law as to motor
vehicles, to give park commissioners power
to pave near parks, and In regard to affi
davits in assessment; also, house bills, to
provide for an assessor outside of a town,
and to add "rooming houses" to the law
In regard to hotels.
The aenate defeated a bill to authorize
Insurance of -doctors," dentists and drug
gists against damageaults or loss "in con
sequence. of error .or, mistake in the treat
ment of patients or the compounding of
drugs." o;
The bill had been reported favorably, but
received only five votes.-' The senate passed
a bill to appropriate $1,000 to aid In build
ing a dam across the' Iowa river at the
Soldiers' Home. The aenate also passed a
bill to forbid the sale of liquor to persons
who have taken treatment at any institu
tion for the drink habit
Too Many Holiday.
Despite the fact that today wa a legal
holiday, George Washington's birthday waa
not observed in the schools of the city.
Lesson went on as on every other day
and no reference to "The Father of His
Country" waa made. The school board de
cided there had been too many legal holi
days. Including Lincoln day. There was
no display on the downtown streets and
the city had the appearance of having evi
dently forgotten to celebrate.

REFUND CLAUSE ALLISON'S
Bit of Unknown Financial History
Revealed at Memorial Service
for lows Senator.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. In the course
of his eulogy yesterday on Senator Alli
son, Representative Albert F. Dawson of
Iowa, who was for years private secretary
to the lata senator revealed the fact that
the latter had been the author of the re
funding provision of the gold standard
act of 1300, and he declared that this pro
vision had not only uplifted the standard
of our national credit, but had actually
saved the government the enormous sum
of $16,500,000.
"When," he said, "the Allison refunding
amendment was presented It waa charac
terized by not a few prominent membera
of congresa as a 'rainbow chaser.' It was
attempting the unattainable, they said,
to ask holders of government bonds f
urrender 4 and t per cent interest and
accept i per cent instead, when at that
moment, Knglands choicest 2"4 per cent
bonds and Germany' Imperial $ per cent
were selling below par."
Mr. Dawaon said, that while in theorj
the plan had eemed unworkable. In prac
tice it had demonstrated that American
credit la the highest In the world, and
added:
"X'nder that amendment $ftt,280.150 of the
publlo debt was reminded in 2 per cent
bonds at a coat to the government of
$16,661,037."
