'It would be a mighty good -thing for
Council Bluffs If this city had an officer
like Mogy Bernstein, the Omaha probation
officer," said a well known citizen yester
day. "What this city needs la an active
probation officer of the Juvenile court, a
man who Is conversant with conditions as
they exist. Since the advent of the many
moving picture theaters on Broadway,
which attract the young folk at night, the
need of a xealous officer of the Juvenile
court was never more apparent. 1 believe
It would be a wise plan to consolidate the
offices of attendance officer of the olty
schools and that of probation officer of
the Juvenile court. The former Is posted
aa to the children who fall to attend school
and the nature of his duties makes him
oonversant with those conditions which
are mainly responsible for delinquency in
the youth of this city. Any person walk
ing along Broadway any night in the week
can see numbers of small children at all
hours, unattended by their parents or In
charge of proper grown up persons."
In expressing this opinion the speaker
said hs did not desire to be understood as
underestimating the services of Rev. Henry
DeLotig, who, since the Juvenile division
of the district court waa established has
acted as probation officer. At the same
time, it 1s well known that Rev. Mr. De
Long, Instead of being on the streets of
the city looking after the children, spends
tha greater part of his time in his offioe
in the county court house waiting to be
called upon to perform marriage cere
monies. That this Is the case Is borne
out by the records of the office of the
clerk oT the district court 4
Under a new law enacted by the recent
general assembly the superior court In
Council Bluffs, as In other cities In Iowa
where superior court still exist, has the
same Jurisdiction as the district court In
Juvenile oases. Heretofore all youthful of
fenders have been dealt with by the dis
trict court, but tinder the new law the
superior court, because of its connection
with tha police department of the city and
the fact that the police are more usually
called on In cases, of Juvenile offenses, will,
It Is anticipated, attend to the greater
part of this work.
Those who have given the matter con
sideration are of the opinion that the pro-
atlon officer of the Juvenile court should
be a comparatively young and active man
nd one who could devote his entire time
to the duties of the office. By merging
the offices of school truant officer and
the probation officer of the Juvenile court
adequate compensation oould be yald such

that some of the so called vaudeville turns
are not calculated to Improve tho morals
of the youths who witness them.
Under the new law the probation of
ficer appointed by the district court also

DES MOINES. July 11. (Special.) For
many years with but slight exceptions
the earnings of the railroads In Iowa have
steadily increased and for the laat alx
yeara the taxes they have paid to the
atate of Iowa have steadily Increased. This
year there Is a total falling off In the
gross earnings pf about IS, 000,000. The
Northwestern railroad alone ahows a loss
of nearly $2,000,000. tha Chicago. Milwaukee
St Paul a little over JLOOO.ono and the
Rock Island a loss of over $625,000.
In view of the loss In gross earnings this
year the question Is whether the execu
tive council will lower the assessment.
Railroad assessments have figured promi
nently In every political campaign for
many yeara and are more or lasa of a
live Issue yet.
The executive council will meet tomor
row for the purpose of taking up the as
sessment of the railroads and It 1s ex
pected that the representatives of the
railroads will appear before the council
and . ask for a reduction of their assess
ment In accordance with the reductions
In their earnings. The state law relative
to the assessment of railroads directs the
council to take Into consideration every
element Including the physical condition
and cost of construction, as well as the
earnings, and the council might therefore
find excuses sufficient, no doubt to leave
tho assessment aa It is If they so choose-
Farms Increasing; In Value.
Along with the reduction In their gross
earnings this year the railroads have the
further argument that the reports to the
executive council from the county auditors
show that farm values have gone up
nearly 40 per cent during the last alx
years. Six years ago the council had the
auditors report the price at which such
farms aa had changed hands during the
year were sold. It showed that the aver
age sale value of farms In the state waa
162.62 an acre and the assessed value then
waa $42.04 an acre, or 80 per cent of the
real sale value. This year the council
again asked for this Information and It
shows that now the assessed value Is 40
an acre and the sale value $72.72, the as
sessed value being but 66 per cent of the
As an argument against any Increase In
the farm assessment and equally against
any reduction In the railroad assessment
the farmers are contending that though
their farms, according to the sales, have
Increased In value, the farmers are not
making a cent more from their farms
than they were six years ago, and that
baaed on their earning capacity the farm
assessments should remain where they
are, for both last year and this there were
shorts crops. .

At 'the meeting held laat week in
Ottumwa there waa a good deal of talk
about the future of the profession of the
pharmacist! It waa arreed that within
the .cope of the laws In Iowa there has
been tome progress made, and the reason
able and rational enforcement of the phar
macy laws the last ten years was com
mended. But It was agreed that the time
has come for asking for some legislation
that will give the pharmacist something
In return for what he does for th state. I
The drugglBts were thoroughly aroused
by the spirited talk given them by Charles
M. Carr, editor of Vie "Notes" the national
association organ, published In Chicago.
Mr. Carr felt at home talking to them
because he was reared at Boone. Some
years ago he was editor of the "Black
permit to go about the country selling
medicines of all kinds to everybody. The
pharmacist la not protected In any way.
"The pharmacist Is forbidden to prescribe
for a patient, for that would be getting
Into the special field of the doctor, and
the pharmacist Is not educated In the
diagnosis of diseases. But a doctor. may
prescribe and he does, in fact, go to his
cabinet and prepare the medicines for his
patient Now I know that among the best
physicians this Is seldom done, and a great
many druggist confine themselves strictly
to dispensing drugs. But doctors are not
educated In pharmacy any more than drug
gists are educated In diagnosis. If the
field of one is prescribed and defined,, why
not of the other?
"I am not saying but what Iowa haa
some good lawa, and they have been well
enforced. The druggists of Iowa are high
minded and honorable, as a rule, and con
ditions In the drug trade are better than
once they were and there la sincere de
sire on the part of the druggists to bring
about the beat possible conditions. The
protection to the public should be real,
and the druggists themselves should be
given uch protection as they need and
then be put upon their honor to maintain
a high standard."
It Is along this line that the druggists
have been working a number of years
and because of this fact It Is certain that
the pharmacists of the state will be heard
from In the next Iowa legislature.
Subui laslonlsts In Field.
Prohibition submlsslontsts will be In the
field in 1910 with a candidate for the re.
publican nomination of governor. This
waa learned definitely today from one of
the most prominent prohibitionists of the
state though he would not allow the
uso of his name. From him It la learned
that every effort Is being made to Induce
Representative Meredith of Cass county
to enter the field on the platform for re
submission of the prohibitory amendment
to a vote of the people, the main plank of
Uie platform of John J. Hamilton In 1908,
when Mr. Hamilton received 80,000 votes
without making any campaign other than
to write a few letters and make one speech
From reliable sources It Is learned that
Representative Meredith will not con
alder the matter and there Is a possibility
of getting Senator Dunham of Delaware
county to enter the race. Senator Dun
ham Is a standpatter and an able lawyer.
Representative Meredith Is a progressive
and an able lawyer. Factional lines, how
ever, are not allowed to enter In the con
sideration of the candidate. If neither

now a cornfield. But at Ottumwa he
spoke for the work of the national as
sociation among the druggists.
Protection for DraKsrlet.
"What do I think of the plan to turn
the whole pharmacy law matter over to
the State Board of Health, or a board of
doctors?" he repeated after an Inquiry as
he stopped off In Dea Molnea on hla way
to his old home. "It's rotten. Instead
of abolishing the pharmacy commission
and abandoning the pharmacy lawa, the
Iowa druggists need some new and ef
fective legislation that will protect them
and give thern something substantial In
return for their outlay. The work of the
national association Is to urge thia. And
as for doctors, it seems Incredible to me
that they, or any considerable number1' of
them, should Indorse any plan to be of
Injury, to the druggists of the state. The
druggists and the doctors, so far as they
have national organizations, work In har
mony for the upbuilding of both, and to
bring about a condition in which , each
profession confines Itself to it proper
"The pharmacist la In a sense an officer
of the state. He la examined and certi
fied and the atate Insists upon certain
qualifications. He pays his fee for his
certificate. He supports the pharmacy
board. What does bs get In return? Any
doctor can mix medicines or start a drug
store and fill prescriptions. Any depart
