CONFER ON STREET RAILWAY
Attorney General and City Attorney
Seek to Unravel Franchise Puzzle.
CASE IS A COMPLICATED ONE
r4et to Have Report Ready to
ftnhntlt to the City Coaacll a ,
Friday, vWhen Aaother Con
ference Will l Held.
That there will be something doing In
the near future In the street railway fran
chise matter was strongly hinted by At
torney General Byers, who spent yester
day In Council Bluffs, part of the time
being occupied with a conference with
City Solicitor Kimball. Mr. Byers de
clined to give out any definite Information
for publication and from Mr. Kimball It
was learned that the attorney general
planned to come here again next Friday
for a further conference on the frunchUe
The attorney general is presumably sat
isfied with the moral atmosphere of Coun
cil Bluffs, as he stated that his visit yes
terday had nothing to do with saloons or
law enforcement. Ha and County Attor
ney Hess conferred during the afternoon
In Mr. Byers' room In the Grand hotel but
neither was willing to say what was dis
cussed at the meeting. Mr. Byers said
he expected to return early this morning
to Dea Moines and consequently would
not be able to remain over for the recep
tion and banquet to Congressman Smith.
"The weather Is too htft for enthusiasm
anyhow," declared the attorney general.
Mr. Kimball was a little more communi
cative than the attorney general, although
not willing to show his hand In the street
car charter matter kt this time. He stated,
howeref, that he and Mr. Byers appeared
to. be of one opinion In the matter and that
following the conference to be held next
Friday they expected to formulate a re
port which would be submitted to the
city council at an early date for such
action as that body deemed advisable.
City Solicitor Kimball said that the
question of the rights of the street rail
way company under the several fran
chises which have been granted to differ
ent corporations was a most Intricate one
and the work of investigation had neces
sarily been long and tedious. Mr. Kim
ball declined to express an opinion as to
which of tha several charters the Omaha
A Council Bluffs Street Railway com
pany professed to be operating the lines
In Council Bluffs at present.
"Th whole question will be thoroughly
reviewed and aet forth In the report which
tha attorney general and myself will pre
pare and submit to the city council," said

Despondent over the loss of his wife,

No one witnessed the shooting. About
S:J0 o'clock Sewell's three daughters, who
lived with him, were awakened by the re

standing the fact that the animal hus

lege graduated the largest class In Its
history this year, every man Is now le
cated in an excellent position and the col-
cge authorises are dally turning down
requests for men to fill remunerative po
sitions along these lines.
A very gratifying feature about the posi
tions filled during the last few years is
the fact that 86 per cent of these young
men are engaged as managers of farms
and ranches. Thlj Is a snost excellent field,
as there seems to be no limit to the de
mand for such men. Several of this year's
class started at from $1,200 to 11,600, while
members of last year's class are now
drawing In some Instances . better - than
$2,000 per year.

Looks I.Ike Fraud.
Though It Is admitted et tha state treas
urer's office that what looks Ilka fraud In
the settling of an estate has been un
covered, the names of the persons and the
location will not be disclosed. It Is learned
that In a town In northern Iowa a Swedish
man died, leaving but two sisters, one In
his homo town and tha other in Sweden.
It Is asserted at tha funeral the mayor of
the town Induced the resident sister to
sign a paper which asked his appointment
aa administrator. The farm was appraised
at $50 an acre and sold at $64. The man
who bought It sold It a tew days later for
twice that amount, which Is trfe element
of fraud. The state treasurer will Institute

haa not been cheated out of Its Inheritance

to have the mayor removed.

Sees Danger in
Claim of Woman
to Man's Sphere
Prof. Armstrong- Diicnisei Social Side
of Sex Question at Meeting
WINNIPEO, Manitoba, Aug. J6.-"The
most disquieting feature of the times la
the revolt of women against their woman
hood and their claim to be on an equality
with men In every way."
This statement was one of the salient
features tn the address made by Prof.
M. E. Armstrong, Ph. D.. LI. D.. F. R. S.,
president of the chemical section ot the
British Association tor the Advancement
of Science, which began lta sessions here
Prof. Armstrong expressed fegret at what
he called the growing tendency toward
premature announcement of Incipient or
alleged sclentlflo discoveries. "We have
been living In a time of sensational dis
covery," tie said. In a period when adver
tisement Is favored and the desire for
notoriety rampant. Unhappily that cau
tion which appeared to be regarded as a
priceless prerogative of the scientific
worker In tha earlier part of th Inst
century la no longer our recognised watch
Dr. Armstrong declared hla faith In the
progress of chemistry toward solving the
problems of life and sex. He found fault
with present conditions of society, which,
he said, placed no hindrance In tha way
of the unfit. "Those who presumably are
the fittest," he said, "are falling to con
tribute in proper proportion to the per
petuation of their race. The condition of
affairs today affords a most striking ex
emplification ot the slowness with which
civilised nations are learning to appreciate
the lessons of science.
"Tha problem can compare tn Importance
with that of the future of our race. Not
only do we encourage deterioration at the
lower end of the scale of Intelligence, but
we now are, through our system of educa
tion, courting failure at the upper end. It
has been stated that tn the United States
of America the higher education1 of girls

SUTTON BODY NOT EXHUMED
FOR HOLY RITES OF CHURCH
ITndao .Publicity Given by Quarter
master la Reason for Refusing;
WASHINGTON. Aug. . Tha quarter
master's department of the army decided
that too great publicity had been given
tha plan to exhuma tha body of Lieutenant
James N. Sutton, and It was for tnat rea
son the order permitting Mils to be done
was either rescinded or held In abeyance.
Such was the explanation given her over
the telephone, says Mrs. Sutton, who do
sired the exhumation of the body In order
that the holy rites of the Catholic church
might be performed, the ground conse
crated and the body returned to lta rest
All arrangebents had been maJe by
Mrs. Sutton and her daughter to proceed
to the cemetery yesterday afternoon, it la
said. A Catholic priest, empowered by
Cardinal Gibbons to consecrate the ground,
was to be with the party, as waa a civil
physician and a surgeon of the medical
branch of the army.
It Is not believed the refusal to permit
the disinterment at this time means that
the' mother's cherished purpose la never to
be gained.. Officials of the rank, even the
secretary of war himself, may take up the
case and extend the desired permission.
