PKOPI.E FOR POOL ORDINANCE
City Conncll Listens to Appeals (or
More HI grid Rales.
It looked like old times at the city council
chamber lust night, with the largo delega
tion that was on hand tc urge the council
men to pass an ordinance regulating pool
halls. The crowd, largely composed of
representative business men, professional
men, young mti' prominent in the work of
the Young Men's' , Christian association,
pastors of the city chuiches and well known
church men, filled the council chamber and
overflowed Into the hallway. The ordinance
was sent to the committee of the whole.
Probably the strongest appeal on behalf
of the passuge of tin ordinance was made
by Rev. Marcus P. McClure, pastor rf the
First Presbyterian church, who spoke dls
passlontucly, but with telling effect. Rev.
Mr. McClure declared that there was a
strong, positive public sentiment in favor
of the ordinance, which had been drafted
and submitted to the council by the city
solicitor at the request of those favoring
stricter regulation of the pool halls.
Major G. II. Richmond, chief of police,
on being called upon, expressed the opinion
that the closing of the pool halls at mid
night and on Sundays would fulfill every
requirement. Minors, he said, were not
permitted by the p'llce In these places.
and that, in fact, under a strict Interpreta
tion of the c'.ty ordinances, evidently refer
ring to the curfew ordinances, boys were
' not permitted In any places of amusement
Hone after 9 o'clock at night.
W. H. Klllpack, member of the Board
; of Education, also spoke strongly In favor
! of the ordinnnce, and a communication to
the council urging Its passage from George
McMshon and others was read.
Louis Feblowilx. who conducts a pool hall
at Fifth avenue and Twenty-first street,
attempted to address the council In opposi
tion to the prosed ordinance, but his
efforts were received ' with more or less
ridicule by the crowd.
Tho ordinance as submitted by Mr.
Kimball piovldes for the closing of the
pool halls on Sundays and at 11 o'clock
at night on week days. While the state
law prohibits "minors" from being in
pool halla the ordinance permits youths
over 1 years to play in them. Thero
are minor regulations. The ordinance
was sent to the committee of the whole.
An ordinance amending a present ordi
nance which Is suggestive of covering a
dusky hued individual hiding In the pro
verbial woodpile was introduced and
passed to its third reading when it wa
on motion of Councilman Jensen Uld
over for one week. The measure In ques
tion Is designed to place the street com
missioner directly and solely under the
direction of the illy council Instead of
the mayor, whose appointee he is under
the law. Mayor Maloney was not pies
ent at the meeting, being out of the city
Councilman Vounkerman wielded the
gavel in Ms absence.
Under an ordinance Introduced by Ur.
Jensen and passed under suspension of
the rules the triangular street Intersec
tion on Washington avenue between In
dlan creek and the Washington avenue
school house will henceforth be known

Reports Made Showing Good Record
TREASURER IS BEST OF AIL
Kaperlal Compliment Paid System of
Bookkeeping of James W. Mitchell
.Minor Questions of
That the office of treasurer of Pot
tawattamie county during the two-year
term of James W. Mitchell ending Decem
ber 31, 1908, "is the best conducted treas
urer's office of which we have any
knowledge" declare the experts of the
National Accounting company of Des
Moines, who checked up the hooks and
accounts of all the county officers whose
terms expired with the new year. This
report was received yesterday by the
Boanl of Supervisors, which met in ad
journed regular session.
No shortage was found In any of the
offices, although some of the Incumbents
are shown to be Indebted to the county
In small amounts through errors and
omissions In the bookkeeping. W. C.
Cheyne, former county auditor, Is shown
by the experts to owe the county S75.S4,
but there la not the slightest Implica
tion that this comparatively small sunt
was misappropriated. It Is merely, the
experts explain, the result of errors In
MltehelPs Books Ferfeet.
In their report on Treasurer Mitchell's
office the experts also say thut the
books were found by them to have been
kept In an almost perfect manner and
they paid a high compliment to Mr.
Mitchell and his force of deputies and
In the office of former Sheriff. Can
ning the accounts are found to be "orrect,
and the experts take occasion to pay W.
A. Graneweg, the office deputy, a hlsli
compliment. Attention, however, Is called
to the fact that In allowance for ex
penses In Insane and criminal cases which
are provided by law no itemlxed vouch
ers appear to have been filed with tne
auditor by the sheriff. Tho attention of
the board is called to the fact that no
charge of feeding and lodging prisoners
for less than a full day was made by the
sheriff. The law allows the sheriff to
charge 12 H cents a meal for three meals
a day and 124 cents lodging a day for
each prisoner. The experts suggest that
all bills should be itemized so as to show
the number of meals supplied each pris
oner in the county Jail.
Me Record of Fees.
In the recorder's office the experts re
port finding no record made by G. ' G.
Balrd, the former Incumbent, of fees re
ceived for transcripts and certificates. Al
though the amount Involved la small,
they say. It belongs to the county and not
to the recorder. Mr. BalVd's reports to
the board show that In 1908 he turned
over $19 60 to the county as fees from
such sources, although no record of the
receipts were found In his books, -t is
The report on the office of the clerk of
the district court during the Incumbency
of H. J. Chambers, who was appointed
by the court to succeed H. V. Battey, Is
to the effect that the books and accounts
were kept In excellent shape. Tho ex
perts recommend for the convenience of
both the clerk and the patrons of the of
fice that a ledger account be opened with
each attorney doing business with the
System Responsible for Errors.
In the auditor's office the experts re
port finding many clerical errors which
they suggest are the result largely of the
system of entering claims against the
county on the claim register. In connec
tion with this office the attention of the
board Is called to the apparent lack of
effort to collect from relatives and oth
ers responsible the expense of caring lor
Insane patients which had been paid out
by the county. In four years, the teport
says, the rare of 3S0 such patients was
charged up to Pottawattamie, while only
In thirteen cases haa there been any at
tempt to secure reimbursement to the
No action was taken by the board on
the report yesterday.
The contract for cleaning and redecorat
ing the upper floor and court rooms of
the county court house was awarded to
H. A. Musselman on his bid of $1,450.
There were five other bids ranging up

faithful performance of the contract.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, la., April 30.-(SpecIal.)
The new State Board of Educa
tion may not be able to per
fect its organization at the' meet
ing held here this week. It Is prob
able that the board will meet on Tues
day and elect a president and secretary
and discuss plana for the general work,
and later the members may go to the va
rious colleges before they decide upon
the selection of the .three members of
the finance or managing committee. The
politics of the game is beginning to crop
out and a strenuous campaign under
cover is being carried on for places on
the finance committee.
Because of this fact the board may
not select the committee now, but defer
action. The line of the campaign now la
to secure three men, each one the repre
sentative of a college, and each one the
strongest man in his leanings toward hla
college. There is an Impression out that
the committee is to distribute Itself about,
one living at each college, and therefore
it Is planned to have at each place a man
who will be particularly expected to look
after that institution. But In fact It
will be almost necessary that all three
of the members live In Des Moines, for
the central office will be here and all
business will be done through the cen
tral office. As representing the normal
college the man most talked of Is Al
fred Grundy of Cedar Falls; for the uni
versity. W. C. Mct'hesney of Iowa City,
and for the college either W. J. Dixon
of Bac City or Ole Roe of Story county.
Among soma persona It is being advo
cated that the committee should be
picked entirely from men not havinc had
anything to do with either college, but
the poltlcal pressure Is all the other way.
It is expected that the wishes of the
governor n ill largely govern In this
Best Psaitlon la State.
It la understood that Harry WInsted, a
local Insurance agent, is to become In
surance actuary for the state, which is the
highest paid clerical position In the slate,
the salary being 13,000 a year. Two years
ago, upon urgent request of Auditor Car
roll the salary for this position was raised,
and an actuary was secured, but he was
affered more with a local company. The
place has since been vacant.

Supreme Conrt Under Fire.
The state supreme court has been
brought under fire of the reformers of
the state and a loud demand is being
made through their newspapers for a
cleaning out. It has been discovered that
the old custom of the state of maintain
ing In the slate house private offices for
the members of the court Is still main
tained and each judge of the court has an
office in which he dictates his decisions
and In which he keeps his private papers
relating to court matters. It Is also true
that when the state capltol was completed
these officea were furnished with fold
ing beds, because at that time the mem
bers of the court were supposed to remain
here all the time court Is In session and
yet none of them lived at the capltol. This
fact Is causing comment because no change
has ever been made. It is also found that
the Judges have paid to relatives some
of the compensation allowed them for
stenographic service, and In some cases
the fund has been drawn by the judges
and disbursed hy them personally. The
code commission also purchased from one
member of the court his annotations of the
code, which were first Issued years ago
and copyrighted, and this is declared to
have been In violation of the spirit, of the

The appointment of Charles C. Dawson
as minister to Chili gives great satisfaction
here. Mr. Dawson was a young lawyer In
Des Moines some twenty years ago and
entered newspaper work as a reporter on
the old TVs Moires Leader, afterwards as
a reporter on the I Moines Register. He
then went to Council Bluff to eugage in
law, but soon entered the diplomatic serv
