General Orenvllle M. ' Dodge, who Is now

gueet of hrnor at a dancing party to be
given Saturday night of this week at the
Waldorf-Astoria by , the Iowa Society of
New Tork In celebration, of the general's
seventy-eighth birthday anniversary.
In a circular letter, copies of which were
received here yesterday, General Clarkson,
president of the society, says:
General Dodge la a man loved and hon
ored by all Iowa people, aa well as by the
people ,nf the nation at large, for his great
achievements: first, as a soldier, and, sec
ond, In the world of railway construction
and financial operation. These two Iowa
societies In New York will do hon'r to
themselves and to the state whose name
their societies hear In rendering this tribute
of affection and honor to this distinguished
guerr. As he has now taken up his home
In Iowa again, and is coming enst on a
business trip at tho time named, he will
not only bring us a message from the eld
home, but will afford us all an opportunity
to pay our affectionate respects to him for
the creative psrt he took in the creation
of both our societies here. All members
of the Iowa Society of New Tork and their
fan-lllrs, and any Iowa friends they may
wish to bring with them, and all members
o' the Iowa New Yorkers and their fami
lies, and any Iowa friends they may desire
es gtiests. are cordially invited to attend.
It will be entirely free, and the society
hopes to make ?t, wholly at its own ex
pense, the red letter event of Its social
year, .as. a closing function for the season.
Wc are sure that there Is no member of
either society who will not gladly unite, If
their other engagements permit, In helping
to pay this tribute of affection to General
Dodge. We are Just as sure he will be
greatly pleased to he sble to meet and
shake hands with all who shall come. It
is an opportunity which has come about In
a happy manner, and it must be that all
the members of the two societies will
recesTiise this and be glad of the oppor

FIRED AT DOG, BUT HIT OANO
Charlea Sand ford Declares This Was
the Way it Happened.
After driving his wife out of their home
at 2927 Avenue I, during the night. Charles
Sandford Is alleged to have shot and
wounded Claudo B. Oano, a neighbor liv
ing across the street from him. Sanford,
against whom a charge of assault with In
tent to commit murder was filed, Is said
to have been armed with a rifle of small
caliber. The bullet struck Gano In the arm
and. glancing off, passed through the fleshy
portion of his side. His wounds were
dressed by City Physlc'an Tubba at po
lico headquarters and are not expected to
Shortly before o'clock yesterday morn
ing word was sent to the police that San
ford had driven his wife out of the house
and had refused to allow her to. return to
take care of her 3 weeks' old baby. It was
while an officer was on the way to the
Sandford place to arrest him that the shoot
ing Is alleged to have taken place.
- Gano was on his way to work at the
Hafer lumber yards when, it Is alleged, he
was made a target for Sanford's marks
manship. Gano has on several former oc
casions, It Is said, taken Mrs. Sanford Into
his home to protect her from the violence
of her husband, and this Is said to have
aroused the Ire of Sanford. At police head
quarters Sanford denied shooting at Gano
an.il insisted he fired at a dog.
SIX WEEKS TO TELL THE TALE
Congressman Smith Confident Tariff
Will Soon Be Fixed.
"Six weeks will see the tariff matter well
settled." said Congressman Walter I Smith,
who arrived home yesterday morning, "and
we will all be glad of It. With regard to
the senate gloves and hosiery amendment,
restoring the Dlngley tariff on these com
modities, as against tho higher duties pro
posed by the house, I can truthfully say
that at least It Is popular."
Asked If he thought the War department
would approve of the proposed new bridge
between the two cities over the Missouri
river being placed between the bridges cf
the Union Pacific and the street railway
company, Mr. Smith said: "Although there
Is not, to my knowledge, any law covering
the matter, It is the policy of the War de
partment not to approve plana for the
erection of bridges over the Missouri river
within one-third of a mile of each ether.
However. I entertain no doubt, in view of
the situation here, permission could be ob
tained for the erection of a new bridge
between the motor bridge and the Illinois
Central's bridge, or between the motor
bridge unil the Union Pacific bridge."
CoiigreFsman Smith said he expected to
be at home for a month or perhaps six
weeks. He will, however, be on hand at
Washington when the tariff bill Is ready
for further consideration by the house.

Changes In Andltor'a
(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April 1. (Special.) - A
serious split has occurred In tlie temper
ance forces of the state, which threatens
the success of the movement to secure tn
amendment of the constitution In lieu of
other methods of securing temperance. A
state federation of the various temper
ance organizations has been formed, but It
has been found Impossible to get all of
them Into the movement. Those which have
through their officers, signified willingness
to Join In concerted movement for an
amendment , are the . Woman's Christian
Temperance union, the prohibition political
prty, the Good Templars, the Intercollegi
ate Prohibition' association, the State Mar
shal club and the International Reform bu
reau. They have Joined together under the
leadership of Rev. D. E. Smith of Indlan
ola, who ' represents the reform bureau,
which has headquarters at Washington, and
Rev. A. C. Rankin, knewn throughout the
country aa "the Moulder Orator," of Pitts
burg, has been secured to take general
charge of the work. An office will be
opened in Des Moines. For the time being
the effort to secure better laws for the en
forcement of existing statutes will be laid
Mr. Rankin has been at work for six
yean organising the State Marshal clubs,
and now . turns his attention to the other
work. But the State Anti-Saloon league,
which In the past has been well supported,
refuses to go Into the movement and, In
fact. Is said to be openly hostile to the
movement Rev. E. C. Barber, who is at
the head of that movement at this time,
has done all he could to prevent the forma
tion of the alliance, and insists on con
tinuing the work along other lines.
Rev. D. E. Smith formerly lived In Ne
braska, having been a minister of the
United Presbyterian church at Pawnoe
City and Lincoln.
Removal - of State Officials.
The state executive council met today and
an effort was made to Induce the council
summarily to remove from office the State
Pharmacy board and thus open the way
for a general change In the working forces
of the state.- It may be stated, however,
that the state executive council will not
now create any vacancies hi official posi
tions, and so long as men In the public
service conduct " themselves properly and
live up to the letter of the law there will
be no revoking of commissions. No action
was taken today. It is probable that the
regular course will be followed in regard
to the State Pharmacy board and that the
procedure will be In that case in accordance
with the precedents of the past, that if
there are disputed bills or accounts the
council will take them up in regular order,
find out the 'facte, call In the persons re
sponsible for the bills and secure a proper
adjustment of all matters In accordance
with law and equity. This has been Idone
very many times in the past, for the work
of auditing the bills has been carefully at
tended to since the council took charge of
that work five years ago, and In every case
the bills have been disposed of. to the
satisfaction of everybody.

Prepare for Army Tournament.
An army board is in Des Moines ar
ranging the program for the army tourna
ment which Is to be held on the state
fair grounds In September next. The plan
is to have about 6,0(0 of the regulars in
camp at the time. Arrangements have
been made for the biggest display of army
balloons ever seen In the west. The
grounds are admirably adapted for the
purpose and are within the city limits. The
army officers are enthusiastic over the
prospect for the event.
Banks and Their Assessments.
A serious controversy has arisen here
over the refusal of the city commission.
as a board of assessment, to reduce the
sssessment on the various bank of the
city on account of United States bonds held
as securities. The banks claim an exemp
tion which the local authorities refuse to
recognise, and the banks have combined
to go Into court. An effort was made by
the recent legislature to change the law
so that national and state bank would be
treated alike, but this could not be done.

been so well pleased with the cleanliness of

graceful" report. He says that no com
plaint waa made by any of the inmates to
the committee when it wss at the hospital,
which tends to prove that a great part of
