This is the extent of the regulation of
the halls Included In the ordinance passed
Monday after long discussion and a con
sideration of the regulation problem In de
tail. A feature of the ordinance when
first Introduced that the loser In a game
should not be made to psy for the game
thus eliminating every gambling feature,
was stricken out.
As originally Introduced, the ordinance
provided for closing every night at 10
o'clock and all day Sunday. i

For three hours the councilman listened
patiently to tha arguments on behalf and

Tlnley, S. B. Wadsworth, and Thomas (J.

owners It was contended the closing of
their places at 10 o'clock on week nights
and all day on Sunday meant bankruptcy
for them and practically confiscation of
their equipment valued at between
t-'O.OOO and $25,000.
The arguments advanced in behalf of
the passage of the ordinance were sub
stantially the same as those presented
at the time the ordinance was introduced.
Mayor Maloney did not take part in
the discussion beyond advancing the
opinion that as the pool hall ownerp paid
license to the city they were entitled
to fair treatment at leaat.

of a policeman for that district from 6

tFrom a S.aff Correspondent.)
DF.S MOINES. April r.-t3peeial.) Tho
der the stimulus of new legislation enacted
by the last geeeral assembly In the vari
ous cities of Iowa the most thorough
cleaning up ever known is going on. and
this Includes not only the ssloons that
have been run without much regard for
the law, but also the resorts which are
known to have nourished everywhere. It
Is confidently predicted that the process
of weeding out the bsd places in Iowa cit
ies will go much furtheT now than ever
"I have heard no criticism of the various
bills which 1 Introduced in the legislature
and which passed," said Senator George
Cosson of Audubon while In ihe city.
"They meet the approval of all who con
sider them fairly, t note that In certain
cities of tha state radical changes of policy
ss to certain patent evils has taken place.
One mayor is quoted that the new laws
ara bad. but he doesn't care to take the
chance on going to JalL therefore he has
ordered that the state laws be obeyed.
"Evidently the law officers of the state
do not take much stock In the idea the
new laws will not be effective. I see thst
Davenport, Burlington and other cities are
being cleaned up rapidly. There has been
something said about the bills having been
emasculated after they were Introduced, but
the fact is not one of the bills waa passed
In any weaker form then It waa when In
troduced, and not a single word was added
to the bills thst will loosen their force,
with one exception. The word 'wilfully'
got Into the bill relating to removal of
officials who fail to do their duty. Now the
courts have construed that to mean about
tho same as 'knowingly,' and In the courts
the word will cause no trouble.
"Now, for the first time In the history
of the, state wo will have some specific
duties for the officers. In looking through
the laws of sll the states I found nowhere
have the laws been made as specific and
definite as we have them now. In all the
statutes there Is a certain vagueness about
Iowa's Sew Weed Law.
"The new weed law will, I believe, prove
very valuable," said Ex-Governor Pack
ard yesterday. "It Is not a drastic law, as
some have felt it to be. but Is quite mild,
and yet we believe it will do good. Tha
principle Is to have the road work and tho
weed killing done together. Instead of
levying a tax for road work the tax ia
levied for road work and weed extermina
tion, and is used for that purpose, one as
much as the other. Then there is provis
ion for notice to a property owner If his
land Is covered with weeds to the injury
of other farms and he must kill the nox
ious weeds from his land. The particular
weeds are named in the law which are
thus to be destroyed so there can be no
doubt about it. Failure to kill the weeds
is a mlsdeameanor. ,',Wf believe the exist
ence of the law will ba beneficial and there
will be little need fot enforcing its pro
visions by prosecutions" .
Work on State Balldlngs.
The work on the three buildings at the
State college authorized by the legislature
will be ruahed as rapidly as possible the
fore part of the summer so that when the
new board takes hold in July there will be
aa little left of these buildings as possible.
At a meeting of the building committee
held a few days ago at Ames It waa de
cided that while the legislature appropri
ated SnO.OOO for continuing work on the heat
ing plant, no contracts will be let against
this by the present board, as obviously tha
legislature intended confining the activi
ties of the present board to the three big
buildings now under way.
Maybrny Is Jost May bray.
Practically' all parties Interested In tha
case of J. C. Maybray now unite In scout
ing the strange story of the mysterious
woman who has tried to make It appear
that Maybray Is none other than the Mc
Cann who was murdered In St. Louis.
News from St. Louis is tha story carries
no weight there and that it has not even
aroused a suspicion as to the justice of
the conviction of "Lord" Banington. The
woman, who has posed here as a detec
tive, hss fascinated those who have come
under her Influence, and she at first con
vinced everyone that her remarkable story
was correct, but as the evidence accumu
lates it Is believed that she Is simply play
ing a desperate game to free the Impris
oned Englishmen and that there is nothing
in the story that will affect the pardon
ing power in Missouri. Neither Is the May
bray theory' that the woman is acting for
government detectives believed by the of
ficials here. They see no reason for the
government to take a hand in the case
In this strange way.
J. C. Maybray maintains absolute fa
ience as to any matters sffecting the case
which stands against him In connection
with the gang of fake racers. He has In
structions from his attorneys not to talk
at all on this question, hence refuses to
sprsk of any of the stories connecting him
with others alleged to he Interested In the
swindling operations. But he has talked
freely of his life and in denial of the
story about him being McCnnn.
