READY TO MOVE FIRST OF JULY
Official. Have Several Proposition, la
View, bat Bid. Will Be Reeelve
at Karly Date by Post
A momentous question, which Is now
giving Tostmaster A. 8. Haxleton mor.
or less food for thought, is that of where
to secure temporary quarters for the
Council Bluffs postofflce while the addi
tion to the federal building is being built
and while the present building Itself la
Mr. Haxleton received word from Wash
ington yeaterday that the money appro
priated for renting temporary quarters
for the postofflce during the work of
construction of the addlton would be
available July 1. This Information re
sult, from correspondence between Mr.
Haxleton and the department In Washing
ton In an effort on the part of the poet
master to ascertain what time he could
plan on moving the office, so that he
might receive propoaals for temporary
Mr. Hnsleton has several propositions
for temporary quarters under considera
tion, but a. yet ha. not reached any de
cision. At one time he planned on se
curing a portion of the Odd Fellows'
building on Broadway, but this is not now
available. He said yesterday that he was
figuring on a large vacant store room
and part of the basement in the Merriam
block, but had not received any definite
proposition from the owner of the block
Qreenshlelds Sc. Everest are willing, so
they have Informed Mr. Hasleton, to erect
a temporary structure on Sixth street,
opposite the federal building. While no
formal proposal has been made by this
firm, if this could be suitably arranged,
the location of the temporary quarter
on Sixth street, Mr. Haxleton stated,
would be by far the most convenient
Mr. Haxleton, however, will advertise
for proposals and the successful bidder
will be assured of his rent from July 1,
whether his building is occupied or rot.
The department ha. appropriated 110,000
to cover the expense of moving and rent
of temporary quarters during the period
of construction of the addition to the
CITY'S REVENUE MAY - DECREASE
Agitation Against Saloons Cat. tn
In fixing the appropriations for the main
tenance of the several municipal depart
ments during the fiscal year, which began
April 1, the oity council based the amount.
on an estimated total revenue of $S8,O0o:
City official, are already commencing; - to
question whether the probable revenue of
the municipality was not placed at too
hlgfh s mark. The recent crusade by the
Anti-Saloon league against the saloon, of
the city. It Is feared, will materially re
duce the receipt, from this source.
Since Attorney Odle, counsel for the Iowa
Anti-Saloon league, commenced his suits
against the retail liquor dealers, the doors
of .even saloons have been closed and
others are expected to go out of business
under the new order rf thing, before long.
Some of them, It Is said, may reopen, but
Indications are that the revenue front the
saloons during the next twelve month,
will not be as big a. that of last year.
How to meet this probable deficit Is a
question which is now troubling the coun
cllmen and other city officials.
In his communication to the city council
relative to th. estimated revenue of the
cKy for the new fiscal year. City Treas
urer True said: 'My estimate " of ' the
amount that will be available this coming
year, providing there is no legislation or
anything else that will deprive ua of the
saloon tax that we are now getting is
185.000. but no more." For the flBoal year
Just closed the revenue from saloon li
censes waa estimated at 130.000, and about
that amount was received. The same
amount was figured tn for the fiscal year
Just begun. Some of the ouuncilmen ar.
of the opinion that the receipts this year
from saloon licenses will not exceed 30,0u0,
There Is already some talk among the
council men pf the city being compelled to
raise the saloon license In order that the
revenue from this source may not be de
creased below the estimate. No action,
however, It is said, will be taken at present
At present the city receives &!.fru from
each saloon. The annual mulct tax proper
Is fixed by statute. Mayor Maloney, In
discussing the matter yesterday, declared
he was opposed to raising the saloon li
cense, as he considered the saloon' men al
ready had burdens to bear without adding
rrvi na Paper, la Bator Case.
The papers in the suit brought in the
United Mates court by Samuel Butor of
Cass Lake, Minn., against officers of th.
First National bank of this city and othora,
were only served yesterday by Deputy
United States Marshal Cole. Deputy Col.
got service on Mr. Hsrt and Cashier
Splndler. He decided to await further word
from Sutor's attorneys before serving the
papers on Ben Marks, ' who is named as
"Benjamin Marsh" In one place In the
petition. Up to date, Cole has not secured
service on George Wilson, named as one
of the defendants. Wilson Is supposed to
have been one of Maybray'a associates. It
Is thought here he acted as "stakeholder"
for the particular horse race, which re
sulted In Sutor being bumped for $J,0UO. Cole
hns no idea that he will be able to get
service on Mr. Wilson.
It daveloped yesterday that the papers
In th. suit were filed In the office of the
clerk of the United States rourt in Des
Moines and then forwarded by him to the
office here. This accounts for the petition
bearing the notation of having been filed
Collectloa of Carlo, for City.

Kimball announcing his willingness to
donate to the city of Council Bluffs a

Philippine islands, provided a proper place
la found for them in the public library
City Solicitor Kimball ha. referred Mr.
Ferrter's offer to V. E. Bender, president
of the IJbrary board, and the latter will
bring It before the board at Its next regu
lar meeting. It Is expected that the board
will gladly accept Mr. Ferrler'. offer.

of a number of the signers of the petition
asking the city council to submit the bond

his cross-examination yesterday afternoon
City Solicitor Kimball confronted Mr.

INSANITY Pl.KA FOR MACBETH
Mental t'oadltlon Urged by Defenae

IOWA CITY. Ia., April t 6poiaJ.
Harrowing Incidents of the murder of Ban
quo, with all the bloody details were given
by Fleanc. Banquo, Impersonated by Ed
ward Allen of Estherville. Ia., In his testi
mony on the witness stand In the mock
trial of Macbeth for the murder of Banquo
In the University of Iowa college of law.
The gruesome account wa. later repeated
by John Hlgglna of Davenport, Ia., who
impersonated the first murderer. A lively
tilt befo.-e Judge L. M. By.rs took place
on the admission of his testimony. It be
ing contended by Attorney. Hemingway,
Gabrielson and Herrick, for the defense,
that the state had not built np a prima
facie caw of conspiracy.
In his opening statement before the Jury,
Charles Merrick, a student from, Extra, Ia.,
outlined the plan by which' the defense
expect, to keep Macbeth from the gallows.
"Macbeth', mental condition waa such that
he waa not accountable for hi. acts," waa
one of the statements made by Herrick
That the defense will endeavor to show
Insanity is now admitted.
The prosecution successfully examined
half of tbelr witnesses and the trial Is
expected to make as good progress today.

Relaa; Made oa Kd.ra
"From a Slaff Correspondent.)
DK8 MOINES, April . tSpeclal.)-The
two houses of the legislature went to work
today to get rid of a great deal of business.
The senate voted down a resolution by
Bruce Intended to close debate and forbid
action on a bill by unanimous consent with
out following the calendar. The two houses
met in Joint assembly and elected some
trustees and regents who will serve only
a short time. These were F. O. Newcomb.
a. regent of the university In rlace of
Congressman Pickett, resigned; W. C.
Howell as trustee of the teacher's college.
In place of J. B. Harsch, who wa. ap
pointed by Cummins and declined to act;
and W. H. Harwood of Des Moines, re
elected after appointment by Gart.
Refused to Rats a .alary.
The senate refused to Increase the pay
of the state superintendent who now gets
$2,200 a year. The bill called for $3,000. An
effort to amend and make It $2,500 was
lost and then the bill was lost.
The senate agreed to the house plan for
changing the name of the State Normal
school to the Statr Teacher's college, then
also passed the house resolution authoris
ing the trustees to apply for the benefits
of the Carnegie pension fund. The senate
passed the bill to forbid the giving of
Firemen Pension Ftsl,
The house passed the bill to authorise
the cities to create a fund for the pension
ing of firemen; also a bill to authorize
boards of supervisor, to grant the use of
highways for electric line poles, and de
feated a bill to appropriate for the care
of the grave of William A. Scott, near the
state capital. The Historical department
appropriation was passed.
Aimed at lainher Combine.
The Kull bill, which prohibits combina
tions of lumber concerns In Iowa and aim.
a death blow at the Lumber trust now al
leged to be operating In the state, passed
the house today by a three to one vote. It
provides imprisonment of six months and
penalty of from IJOO to $5,000 for viola
tions of the anti-trust law.
' (Mate Marshal Bill Dead.
This afternoon the house once more laid
the Rankin state marshal bill in the grave.
The bill was taken up and amended in
many ways and discussed at length and
finally defeated, 6 to 30. It provided for
dividing th. state into two districts, with
a head marshal In each for enforcement of
Th. senate defeated the house bill to
penalize the railroads for failure to comply
with orders of the Railroad commission,
the effort being to put a stop to the suits
brought solely for delay. The house also
passed th. senate bill on report, from cor
poration, with a small annual fee.
The house, at a date so late that little
can be expected therefrom, has passed the
Harding bill for a tax commission, appro
priating $16,000 for Its services, to advls.
as to how to revise th. taxing law.. The
house also passed the bill to create a
"conservation commission" and to appro
priate $1,600 therefor. The house also de
cided upon $10,000 a year for helping out
the dairy industry by carrying on an edu
cational campaign. The senate has not
acted on any of these. .
The house disposed of the bill to trans
fer the banking department to the office
of treasurer of state. The transfer of
the insurance department waa abandoned
long ago. and presumably there will be
neither readjustment or abolition nor Im
provement nor Increase of any department
of the state.
Board of Edacatlon.
All sorts of "slatos" are being made up
for the Board of Education which must
be submitted to the senate within a few
days. As a matter of fact there Is little
of tho gossip that Is anything more than
conjecture. Th. leading senators ar. not
being very liberally consulted. There la
general expectation that ex-Senator Funk
Till go upon the board and virtually be
the head, and there t. talk that ex-Senator
Trewln will also have a place there. Un
doubtedly Hon. Ole Roe will have a place
either on the board or finance commute v
There is also pretty nearly a certainty that
x-Senator Tom Lambert will be one of
the democratic members. Beyond this there
Is nut much that is kr.own.

Taylor Case la Postponed.
MINDEN. Neb., April 3.-(8peclal-Dlstrlct
court Is now In session. There
Is little work being done because of the
calling of the grand Jury. Bert Taylor
was arrigned for the murder of Pearl
Taylor on April IS of last year. E. Q.
Hamer of Kearney and J. L. McPhe-k-y
of Mlnden were appointed to defend.
From the preliminary motions made by
the attorneys for a continuance It ap
pears that insanity will be the defense.
The defendant made a motion for a con
tinuance because two important wit
nesses, Dts Jones and Martin, are now
in Vienna, Austria, taking a post-graduate
course. The case was continued until
some time in the latter part of May.
Taylor seems somewhat thin, but other
wise appear, as usual when he lived In
Mlnden. Hla conduct prior to the mur
der was that of the most orderly citizen.
Taylor seems to have no one who be
friends him. It is not known whether
his brother will be here. It is antici
pated that the next move by the defense
will be to get a change of venue to some
Dane, to Vlalt Old Country. '
