Despite the order of Judge Wheeler of
the district court dissolving the tem
porary Injunction secured by Angel Alta
restraining the city from cutting the
Pettlbone ditch through his property at
Fourth avenue and Twenty-first street,
the ditch Is still proving a bone of con
tention between the-municipal authorities
and the property ownera In that section
of the city.
Yesterday Street Commissioner Tim
Flood started a gang of ten men at work
on the ditch, but they did net get very far
along when there was a cessation of dig
ging. Mrs. Alta, armed with a pitchfork,
drove the men from the ditch and held
them at bay. None of the men were
anxious to tackle the pitchfork, and when
Bosa Flcod returned from Inspecting
other work in another part of the city he
found his men taking things easy. Flood
tried to pacify Mrs. Alta. but the more
he talked the more aha waved the pitch
fork In dangerous proximity to his per
son. Finally Chief of Police Richmond
was applied Jo and he aent Patrolman
Allen to the scene. When she saw the
officer Mrs. Alta retreated to her house
and the men succeeded In digging about
fifty feet of the ditch by quitting time.
Commission Flood said last evening that
he expected the ditch would be filled up
again before morning, as has been the case
The court wllj be asked Monday to Issue
an order restraining Mrs. Alta, her hus
band and all others from Interfering with
tha work on the ditch.

Iowa Secretary of State Aiki Fail

COMPANY OFFERS THREE DOLLARS
State Officer Demands Over One
Hundred Thousand, nnd Thinks
Amount should Be Close
to A Million.
From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. May 23 -Not only did Sec
retary of State Hayward today formally
demand lloR.niS as fees for filing articles
of Incorporation of the Pullman Sleeping
Car company, but he asked Attorney Gen
eral Byera to Investigate with a view of
bringing suit for $100 per day penalty for
twenty-three years because the company
has never done business in Iowa legally.
The company has generously offered to
pay $3 to Secretary Hayward as record
ing fee. This amount will hardly be ac
cepted by the secretary, however, since he
believes the state Is entitled to something
like (950,000 Instead.
For some reason the Pullman company,
It has been discovered, has never ' filed
articles of Incorporation In Iowa; hence,
it has never been legally doing business
here. When thla fact was put up to the
company, the latter tendered a copy of the
articles together with a recording fee of
10 cents per 100 words, or about 3. Sec
retary Hayward adds this 3 to the fil
ing fee of 1100,015 and "bones" the company
tor iito.uis, calmly announcing that he
leaves the collection of. the penalty of fS3,

OLD CHURCH HISTORY RECALLED
Destruction of Charles City Structure
Revives Some Memories.
CHARLES CITT. la.. May 23.-(Speclal.)
The wrecking of the Evangelical church
property on Kelley street recalls some In
teresting church history going hack nearly
two decades. In the early days of tho
German Methodist Episcopal church It was
the custom for men and women to occupy
seats on the opposite sides of the church,
but when the brick church was erected on
the corner of Wlscorsln and Blunt streets
It was decided to abandon this custom and
husbands and wives sat together. Shortly
after this a change o pastors occurred
and the new minister changed hack to the
old practice. This created opposition and
the question was carried to the conference,
when the presiding elder suggested to the
pastor that It was better not to. Insist
upon hla position in the matter, but thia
availed not, the 'church dividing, those op
posing the minister Joining the Evangelical
association. They erected the Kelley street
church and parsonage, forming quite a
strong society. 1
The church prospered a few years until
one of the bishops got mixed up In a sen
sational scandal resulting In a division of
the church organisation In all parts of the
country. Including the Kelley street so
ciety, when a portion cf the membership
withdrew and erected a church on the
West Bide, which represented the element
that sustained the bishop, and the society
Is now In good condition. In the meantime
the parent church prospered, aided by the
Influence of the college; they outgrew
their Wisconsin street quarters and erected
a fine new modern edifice on the corner of
Kelley and Harwood streets and then aban
doned the separate seating system and per
mit their members to sit together as they
