DES MOINES, la., July 12.-(Speclal Tel

F. Carroll's sister, Mrs. Jane Rouch at
Bloomfleld, the executive council, which
met today to assess the railroads, ad
journed till tomorrow, after listening to
the representatives of the Dubuque and
Sioux City and Colfax and Northern, be
cause the representatives of these roads
cannot be present tomorrow. Only minor
matters were considered today, the coun'
ell not going Into the broader principles.
Tomorrow 'the railroads will ask for I
substantial reduction of their assessments.
It Is understood that Representative White
of Story county will appear before the
commission and ask that the assessment
be left where It Is and that no Increase
be made In the farm land assessment. He
will claim that while land values have
gone up in the past few years, ths Incomes
from the farms are' no greater than 'six
Railroads and Farms.
W. W. Baldwin of the Burlington has
discovered by Inquiries to the county aud
itor that the taxes which farm lands rent
ing for cash rent pay Is but per cent
of the cash received as rent, while the
railroads pay taxes, as he claims, which
Is IS per cent of their net earnings, the
net earnings corresponding to the cash
rent of the farms. The fact that reports
this year show wide discrepancies between
the assessed value and sale value of
farms, showing that the sate value on the
average has inqreased nearly 40 per cent,
while the assessed value Is actually lower
that formerly. Is the feature of the assess
ment business this year.

Opinion on Moon Lave.
Attorney General Byers Is preparing a
decision relative to the Moon law at the,
request of a number of persons who have
asked him for his Interpretation of the

public tomorrow. It Is understood that he
will hold that the legislative Intent gov

was that no further aaloon permits be
granted above one to each 1.000 population
after the passage of the law, which was
Flaht on New Ratea.
The railroads may ask for an Injunction
to prevent the order of the Interstate Com
merce commission relative to rates through
Des Moines and from Des Moines to the
northwest going Into effect till heard by
the court. The order of the commission
was considered a great victory for Des

Settle Mine 'Difficulty.
Trouble In the Iowa district of the United
Mine Workers of America has been settled
without the assistance ot Hon. William
Jennings Bryan, who had consented to act
as one of the arbitrators. Mr. Bryan could
not sit with the other four members till
September. The four members of the
board got together and agreed unanimously
on a decision. Charges " had been made
that John P. White, the president ot the
local district, was trying to wreck the
order. Jonas Gott charged that Harry
Baker, district secretary, and James Arch!
bold, the local president at Centervllle,
had circulated such a report. The arbitra
tors found that such was not the case,
whether the report had been circulated or
not; that Intemperate statements had been
made by both sides and in brief that the
best thing to do was for everyone to "drop
their hard feelings for the good of the
