the Board aalooa lase
. A eommlttee from the West Council
Bluffs ad West End Improvement rluhs,
composed of A. C. Keller. W. C. Boyer,
C. C. Clifton and C. E. Sparks, appeared
before the Board of Supervisors of Potta
wattamie county. Iowa. Friday and
submitted tha matter of the propoafd
free bridge over the Missouri river be
tween Council Bluffs snd Omaha. The
matter was discussed by the committee
and the board more or leas Informally
and at the suggestion of the supervisors
the committee will present the matter
In detail In a written statement in order
that the board may have something tangi
ble on which to take action.
The committee for which President
Keller of the West Council Bluffs club
acted as principal spokesman told of the
meeting held Wednesdsy night In the club
house on West Broadway, at which a
number of representative Omaha citizens
were present. The cost of a bridge such
as Is suggested, the committee stated,
would not cost over $400,000. Of this
amount Pottawattamie county. It was
aald. would be expected to raise, by bonds
Lor otherwise, one-fourth, or 1100,000. The
committee explained to the supervisors
the benefits that it was suggested would
be derived by both cities from a free
Among the numerous bills" allowed by the
board yesterday were 'three covering the
months of January, February and March
for the care of county patients at St.
Bernard's hospital. The three bills aggre
gated 11,807 32. and they represent, there
fore, an annual expense of about $7,000 for
this class of county charges. Under a con
tract running for a period of 10 years and
terminating In 1911, the hospital Is paid
$14 m month for each county patient. Dur
ing January the number ot county charges
In the hospital were forty-five, during
February there were forty-eight and dur
ing March there were forty-six.
' Tho board took another turn yesterday
at tha salary claim of J. R. Macrae, the
city quarantine officer, but without finally
reaching any decision. Early; in the after
noon the board decided to allow Macrae
$t a month for the first three months of
this year, the period covered by his bill
and. $60 a month thereafter.' Macrae's sal
ary, as fixed by the local board of health,
was $70 a month. Later In the afternoon
the board rescinded this action and will
take the matter up again this morning,
when it Is believed It will allow the bill In
The Board of Supervisors will have to
determine whether the Issuance of the
bonds for the bridge shall be submitted
to the electors of the county, and It was
to get the members Intereated in tha mat

Power to Nasne Officers.
While County Attorney Hess holds that
the law does not provide for a salaried
quarantine officer, -one of the rules of
the Slate Board of Health provides "the
mayor shall have authority to appoint
sanitary police, whose duty It shall ba Jko
aid In r the establishment and enforcement
of quarantine regulations and such other
sanitary regulations as may be provided
by the atato or local board of health.""
The same rule further provides "the com
pensation of such sanitary police shall be
the same as that allowed other police of
ficers of the city." The members of the
police department receive $70 a month.
At tha March term of district court J. H.
Cupp secured Injunctions against T. J.
Griffin and F. J. West, saloonkeepera of
Neola and the two went out of business.
Both Griffin and West have filed with the
Board, of Supervisors petitions aaklng that
they be refunded the portion of tha license
they had paid In advance, amounting to
$1S. The board expressed doubt as to its
authority to make this refund In view of
the fact "that the saloonmen only went out
of business after Injunctions had been ob
tained against them. The petitions were
referred to the county attorney.
'County Stands Saloon Coats.
In connection with the recent crusade
against the saloons by Joe Leader of Oak
land, acting for the Anti-Saloon league. It
devclopa that the county has to stand the
costs. One of the actions brought by
Leader was against W. P. Kane, who It
waa ahown had quit the saloon business
In July of last year and consequently th
case was dismissed by the court Now
the county has to pay the costs and among
the bills allowed yesterday afternoon waa

During the forenoon the Jury sent word

ently no prospects of It reaching an agree

Maher was shot In the thigh by Officer
Peterson while attempting escape after
being arrested on South Main atreet for

Chief Work of Session Was to

Levy Remains In
rhanaed. I From a Staff Correspondent.)
DBS MOINES, la.. April 10 (Speclsl. 1-
The leglslsture closed Friday, the last day
being drawn out long so that all work
could be cleaned up. Not a great amount
of Important business wss transscted on
the closing day, but everything was
hsndled that waa necessary.
The chief business of the session has
beer to strengthen the enforcement of the
laws of the state and to make more nearly
perfect the reform legislation of recent
years. In this a great deal of good work
has been done. The session was notable
also for the hard fight for a prohibitory
amendment, which failed, and for a large
number of repealing bills which failed of
passagn. All effort to change the school
or road laws failed. Another matter which
took up a great deal of time and which
came to nothing was the effort to secure
changes In the laws for the consolidation
of departmenta, for the transfer of de
partments and bureaus and for abolition
of some offices. Bills In this same line also
contemplated the giving to the governor
power of removal, but this was not done
and on the laat day the legislature virtu
ally took from th governor what little
authority he had had. ( ,
The passage of the Board of Education
bill was by far the most important men'
ure of legislation and this came only after
three sessions of hard work -oh the part
or a small number of persons.
The senate today refused to confirm the
appointment of F. F. Jones of Vllllara, for
member of the Board of Control and that
place will be left vacant. The rejection of
both Mr. Jones and Judge Connor was due
aolely to the feeling on the part of th
legislature that It was a lolatlon of the
spirit of the law to remove the only farmer
on the board and appoint a lawyer or
banker. There waa no 111 feeling against
either of th appointees, but a desire that
the law should be observed more closely.
Tnday the two houses passed the omni
bus appropriation bill and the bill fixing
salaries about the state house, making
rew changes from former years. The so.
called lumber trust bill wss amended so
as to Include all trusts and combines of
every kind and passed. The senate passed
a bill to Increase the pay of legislators
from $550 to $S00 a session, but the house
killed the bill. The hotiso passed the senate
bill forbidding Immoral plays. This Is a
a rustic measure and will place every the
ter under a rigid censorship. The house de
feated a bill which had passed the aenate
to create a commission to report on the
manner of Improving the capltol grounds
nd surroundings. The house also defeated
a bill to give protection to owners of milk
and cream cans. .
Approval of Election ky People.
The senat took up a house resolution
memorlalixlng congress to call a convention
for -tho amendment of the United States
constitution providing for election of Cnlted
States senators by. the people. This was
debated briefly and passed 24 to . Thosa
who stood out against the plan were
Saunders. Glllilland, Whipple, Savage, Hoyt
The house took up and passed the senate
bills providing for greater restrictions on
the liquor business, one of them limiting
the number of saloons to one for each
1,000 Inhabitants and the other requiring
a new form of application for liquor In
drug stores. These are th laat of the tem
perance bills considered. ' .-
