Contract with Ta Frrrets Extended
to June 1, 1010.
The county supervisors will meet today
as a drainage board and take up the mat
ter of the proposed establishment of the
Nlshnabotna ditch. Attorney Frank Shlnn
of Carson will appear before the board
on behaff of the Interested land owners,
who are strenuously opposing the project.
Mr. Shlnn, on behalf of his clients, will
contend that' the second appraisement of
damages was void and Illegal for the al
leyed reason that the appraisers did not
Bo over the ground, but merely took the
fic'urcs of the first set of appraisers. The
Indications are that the matter will finally
find lis way Into court, as Attorney Shlnn
di dared yesterday that his clients were
determined to prevent the establishment
of the drainage district If possible.

Antl-elnow Men Deny This

I ntll After Time for With,
The antl-saloon ftrcta will wteld the "big
slick" In their efforts to induce those who
signed the new saloon general petition of
consent to withdraw their names from the
document. When th circulation of the
petition was first started local members of
the Iowa Anti-Saloon league threatened to
publish all the names of the persons who
signed the document. Tt was generally sup
posed that the publication would be In a
dally newspaper of local circulation and
the threat Is believed to have kept many
from signing the petition. This was not
done, and It was said that the expense of
publishing tha names In the dally press had
proven an' obstacle to carrying out what
was supposed to be the original Intention.
Yesterday R. C. F. Chambers, district
superintendent of the Iowa Antl-Baloon
league, announced that the names of the
signers of the petition would be published
In "The Dial of Progress," the official
organ of the league, which Is published In
Des Moines. The publication,' however,
will not be made until after tha time ex
pire for obtaining withdrawals. "It would
not be fair." said Mr. Chambers, "to pub
lish the names of the men who signed the
petition and then ask them to sign with
drawal statements. The plarl of publica
tion Is simply the Iowa Anti-Saloon league's
way of doing business. It has bnen at
work for sixteen years and has foHowed
the plan of publishing the names of those
who sign petitions of consent, as It will
continue to do so In the future. When we
announce that the names will be published
we do not wish this to be construed as In
any way being a threat." '
Messrs. Arnd and Hardin, who circu
lated the saloon petition of consent, are
not losing any sleep, they say, over the
threats, as tney term them, of Mr. Cham
bers. "Tha fact that the Iowa Anti-Saloon
league threatened to publish the names of
those who signed the petition, we believe,
Induced many to attach their names to the
document, who otherwise would not have
done so. The threat of publishing the
names will not Induce any material number
to withdraw their signatures," declared Mr.

City louncll In Row.
When the city legal department at a spe
cial session of the council today delivered
a "straddle" opinion regarding the city's
rights to spend over $200 without first ad
vertising for bids It produced one of the
stormiest sessions of the year.
The meeting was filled with personalities
and cutting references to other council-men's.-
deportment. Mayor Mathls was
forced to call for order several times.
Councilman MacVlcar fired hot shot at all,
including the mayor, and called his atten
tion to the fact that while police Judge he
had remitted fines contrary to law.
The report of the legal department con
tained two separate opinions. Corporation
Counsel Bailey contended that the city had
a right to spend oVef SHOO without adver
tising for bids, while-Solicitor Brennan and
his assistant, Fred Wifjlams, held the op
posite opinion. ' ",, , .' ' ...
Counsel Bailey held that all work ex
cept assessment work and other "w ork spe
cifically provided for may be ordered by
the council without (list advertising. So
licitor Brennan said the council must ad
vertise for bids in all cases where the
Board of Public Works would have been
required to do so,
Mr. MacVicar said there Isn't a depart
ment under the present council that has
observed the law.
"You're tying up my department," he said,
"How am I going to conduct my business
unless I can spend over that amount? Are
we going to send the report broadcast that
the city officials can't run its own affairs?
If auch is the case we had better resign
"Will you do that?" quickly asked Wes
ley A3h. "I'll resign tomorrow with you
I'll state my case before the people and
come up again for re-election. Will you?"
"Tickled to death at the opportunity.
You can't bulldoze me. You get sore when
ever anyone votes against you."
This silenced MacVicar.
Fifty Cattle Slain.
Chairman John Ciwnle of the Board of
Control of State Institutions returned last
night from Cedar Rapids, where he wit
nessed the slaughter of the fifty head of
cows and heifers from the Independence
State hospital. At the recent test of the
Independence herd by the state veterln
arlans fifty-one head had reacted to the
tuberculin test and were condemned. One
of the animals, however, was crippled and
nut shipped to Cedar Rapids, which left
fifty head that were slaughtered.
Of this number four animals Were badly
affected," said Mr. Cownle, "two particu
larly so, photographs of these two being
taken at the slaughter house and these
animals were tanked. The remaining forty-
six head were passed by the United States
governhient Inspectors, any symptoms of
the disease being merely local and requir
ing the closest scrutiny In many cases
to find any lesions whatever. In faci.
seven head were passed by the govern
ment Inspectors as 'normal,' nothing what
ever being found that Indicated tuber
culosis in the slightest degree.
This matter of tuberculosis," continued
Mr. Cownle, "is one of the most serious
problems now. before the people or Iowa,
whether In the human family or In cattle
and hogs, for many are more or less af
fected with this dread disease.
I'nfortunately the tuberculin test docs
not indicate the progrevs the disease hai
made, whether It Is In lis Inclpiency or
well advanced, and In this last slaughter
of the Independence cows It Is even found
that seven cattle that reacted to the
tuberculin tet gave no Indications what
ever of being affected In the slightest de
gree as shown by the post mortem ex
amination. This examination was also
very rigid, being conducted by experts em
ployed by the government and In the pres
ence of three state veterinarians. It Is

will have stations on each river is already
progressing. In this case Highland Park
college of Des Moines has announced that
It will establish a station here and fully
equip It with sending and receiving In
struments, so that Des Moines will have( a
wireless station. Already steps have been
taken toward establishing a wireless system
here between the city and the college,
some two miles apart. Wireless telegraphy
has been demonstrated at the school and
is In actual operation there now. where Is
located what Is credited with being the
biggest telegraph school In the world. Not
only wjll Iowa have wireless messages

full operation a school for the graduation
of wireless telegraph operators.
No Iowa Peach. Crop.
The peach crop In Iowa Is a total failure,
according to the report of Wesley Greene,
secretary of the State Horticultural society.
Some people might say that such an an
nouncement is of little significance, as
many peaches are not raised In Iowa, but It
Is of significance because, according to Mr.
Greene, there Is one county In Iowa which
has 13,000 fruit bearing peach trees.
As a whole the fruit crop of Iowa today
has an outlook of being 10 per cent better
than it was last year. The tree fruit Is a
little off, but the shrubbery fruits are
much better. The outlook for a crop based
on a percentage of perfect yield Is, accord
ing to Mr. Greene, as follows: Apples, 69
per cent; pears, 38 per cent; American
plums, 61 per cent; domestic plums, 34 per
cent; Japanese plums, 26 per cent; cherries.
46 per cent; grapes, 79 per cent; red rasp
berries, 62 per cent; black raspberries, Bt
per cent; blackberries, 80 per cent; currants,
76 per ctnl; gooseberries, 65 per cent; straw
berries, 79 pep cent.
