made the first payment on a sixty-tort
Baldwin mogul" locomotive which will ba
used In construction worrt. The engint it
expected to arrive in about two weeka. It

Mr.' Adams stated that the difference be

Sloan Uets Indeterminate Term for
Bon Sloan, the young man convicted In
ti e district c iurt of manslaughter in con
nection with the death of James Wal
lace, who was thrown from a Northwest
ern passenger train on which he was beat
ing his way hear Crescent City on the
evening of May 22, last, was sentenced
by Judge Woodruff yesterday to an Inde
terminate term In the Anamosa reforma
tory. The maximum term for manslaughter
Is eight years. Before pronouncing sen
tence Judge Woodruff heard and over
ruled a motion for a new trial. The motion
was based chiefly on the contention that
the , Jury should have been Instructed .pa
the question of possible accident as a
cause of Wallace's death. Sloan' defense
was that Wallace was under the influence
of liquor, and that he fell off the train.
T. Q. Harrison, Sloan's attorney, an
nounced that he would appeal the case to
the supreme court. Should the appeal be
sustained Sloan, who was Indicted on a
charge of murder, could not be tried again
for a greater crime than manslaughter.
Andy Spickcrman, the saloonkeeper, who
was Indicted on the chorge of conducting
hlH place in violation of the mulct law, and
failed to appear in court recently when hi
case was called for trial with the result
thut his bond in the sum of 500 was
ordered forfeited, wa permitted to enter
a plea of guilty yeterday. Judge Woodruff
fined hlra 1300 nd costs and rescinded the
order forfeiting the bond.
The trial ot the suit of the Kimball
I Brother' company against the Citizen'
lias and Electric company, which has oc
cupied several days, Is expected to reach
ih.. ini-v some time today. This will be
the last Jury case for this term.
No Dredsjlna Wrk on Creek.
Although It Is generally conceded that In

this Is a good time of the year to do tt,
no work along this line will be undertaken
(until spring, according to the present plans
I of Mayor Maloney. In fact, no dredging
could be done at this time even If th city
defl.ed to. The city leased Its dreige to
a man named Kankln. who la doing some
extensive ditching on a large farm near
Taikio. Mo. llanklii was to have returned
the dredge last summer, but did not .do so,
lie ays he expended $1,200 In repairing th
machine and as compensation for this out
lay askid to be permitted to retain It for
some time longer. When making this re
quest, which It Is understood was granted,
Rankin promised to deliver the dredge In
jCuur.ci! Bluffs at any time, the city might
need It. . , .

Secretary of Interior Makes State

POWER . SITES CHARGE DENIED
He Xone erared by Private
' Parties Stare He Took Charge of
Office -Con cress Will Be
Asked t Act.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 Secretary Rich
ard A. Balllnger, of the Department of the
Interior, who returned to Washington last
night after an extensive tour of Inspection
of the public domain and Interests In the
far west under the Jurisdiction of his de
partment, gave out late 'teeny a statement
which in regarded as a declaration of his
policy as to these, matter.
The statement Is written In the third per
son, and takes up'he various features of
the work of the department devoting par
ticular atfehllon to the various reclamation
enterprises and especially to the subject of
water power sites 'on the public domain.
The secretary reiterates, "without fear of
contradlctUM' the statement hitherto made
In his behalf, "that since his Incumbency
bo water power site on the public domain
heretofore withdrawn have been secured
by private parties, and that he has ener
getically made every effort, by temporary
withdrawals,' to segregate existing power
site on the public domain, in order to en
able congress to legislate for their prudent
Inapeet Reclamation Work.
, Secretary Balllnger state that during hi
trip, "most of th principal government
reclamation project have been visited,
ome of them with the senate committee
on irrigation. The water-user and settlers
upon the reclamation project have been
conferred with, a Well a the government
officer in 'the field, respecting existing
project, a well a questions which may
Involve the Improvement of the service and
the advancement of the Interest of the
ettler." ' '
Inspecting the reclamation work of the
government In the west, the studies made
by the secretary have Inspired him, the
statement says, "with an ambition to com
plete existing projects at rapidly a busi
ness prudence and money available will
permit and he la earnestly In favor bf se
curing authority, from congress for the Is
suance of bonds' against the reclamation
funds to give the service ' the means
whereby all existing project can be speed
ily completed and necessary extensions un
dertaken." The Betfrelftry declined today to discuss
any phase of the Controversy regarding
conservation policies ' which has been de
scribed as existrig' between himself and
Gtfford Plnchot, the government forester.
He made it plain that he will deal with
the subject of conservation in his annual
report, to which he will soon give atten
tion. . He' declares hlrfiself m hearty ac
cord with President' Taft as to the under
taking or irrigation' work only where prob
able feasibility warrants the expenditure
of the' funds and "Independent of local or
political considerations "Every measure
Is to be adopted 6n the ground that It will
be Useful for the 'whole country.' " '
Outline of Report.
Confidence Is 'Expressed By the eecretary
that when his attitude in regard to thla
subject 1 Wown to' the public, both the
people 'at.d'cottihffesknwlll be lh hearty ac
cord With the 'adfrifnlstratWe policies of the
Interior aeparrml'Vi't. In' his repbrt, the, sec
retary declares; jrVe'-'wfll place special em
phasis upon the! right use and disposition
of the coal, ptiosphkte, oil and other min
eral deposttst-'water power Sites and other
Important natural7 resources of the public
domain. The activities ot the department,
the secretary declares, will also show "an
aggressive arid untiring effort to prevent
the illegal and Improper disposition of the
public domain.' " '
Mr. Balllnger describe himself a
"keenly alTvW to the importance of the re
clamation work la restraining flood water
and protecting the, great river basin of
the west froni destructive floods. He made
a special study of the condition on the Col
orado and Rio Grande rivers Involving the
appropriation and right use of these waters
within American territory before their pas
sage Into Mexico."
The condition of aome of the Indian
schools Inepected flva described by the
secretary as "a disgrace to the nation."
He declared today that some ot them were
nothing but mere rat traps, foul with age
and unsanitary. He is In full accord with
the commissioner of Indian affairs tn his
attempt to overhaul the field service and
secure greater efficiency and a more pro
nounced advancement of the Indians.
The secretary Is- very emphatic in his
commendation of the personnel of the engi
neer and subordinates In the reclamation
service and for the, high type of construc
tion and durability of the work on the vari
ous projects, for which they are respon
sible, . a Well a their general efficiency
and Integrity. The secretary Indicates that
the work will be prosecuted with such dis
patch a to enable th government to avail
Itself of the appropriation and beneficial
use of Waters In the western state where
large undertakings may be availed of and
which, he says, are generally not within
the ability of private enterprise.

Medicines like those of Dr. R. V. Pierce of Buffalo, warrant their makers in printing their every ingre
dient, which they do, upon their outside wrappers, verifying the correctness of the same under oath.
This open publicity places these medicines in a class all by themselves. Furthermore, it warrants physicians
in prescribing them largely as they do in their worst cases.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
Is m most potent alterative or blood-purltler, and tonic or Invlgorator and acts especially favorably
In a curative way upon all the mucous lining surfaces, as of the nasal passages, throat, bronch-
lal tubes, stomach and bowels, curing a large per cent, ot catarrhal cases whether the disease af
fects the nasal passages, the throat, larynx, bronchia, stomach (as catarrhal dyspepsia), liver,
. i bowels ( as mucous diarrhea), or other organs.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is advised for the cure of one class of diseases only those peculiar weaknesses, derangements and irregularities pecuj- 1
iar to women. It is a powerful yet gently acting invigorating tonic and nervine.
For weak, worn-out, over-worked women' no matter what has caused the break-down, "Favorite Prescription"
will be found most effective In building up the strength, regulating the womanly functions, subduing pain and
bringing about a healthy, vigorous condition of the whole system. . -

A book of particulars wraps each bottle giving the formulae of both medicines and quoting what scores of eminent med- .
ical authors, whose works are consulted by physicians of all the schools of practice as guides in prescribing, say of each
ingredjent entering into these medicines. .
Both medicines are non-alcoholic, non-secret, and contain no harmful habit-forming drugsl being composed of glyceric
'' extracts of the roots of native, American, medicinal, forest plants. They .are both sold by dealers in medicine. . You
' can't afford to accept as a substitute for one of these medicines of known composition, any secret nostrum. Don't do it.

Breach of Faith
New Features Are Added to Poli
tical Fight in City of
NEW YORK, Oct. 2S.-A drlxzling ratn
fell In New York tonight but despite the
weather, three mayoralty candidates, de
livered collectively slxtetn speeches. Otto
T. Bannard, the republican nominee, led
with nine curt, business-like addresses In
Harlem and the Bronx; William R. Heart
who I running Independently, spoke at
Carneglo hall, once in Harlem and onoe In
the Bronx and William J. Oaynor, running
on the democratic ticket and backed by
Tammany hall, spoke four time in the
heart of Manhattan, Including an address
to Italian democrats at Cooper Union.
Crowd, greeted the speaker everywhere.
' The .meeting which Hearst addressed at
Carnegie hall was announced as a demo
cratic mass meeting and the editor, al
though he made an attack on Tammany,
the principal part of hi address, empha
sised that he wa for all tlm a democrat,
but an exponent of Independence In politic.
Incidentally, Mr. Hearst disclosed aome
interesting faots concerning hi acceptance
of the democratic nomination for governor
against Hughes In 1906. "Three year ago
I ran for governor of the state of New
York upon the Independence party ticket,"
he raid, "and the democratic party of ths
state of New York endorsed me, seeming
to see true democracy In the candidate and
platform of the Independence party. I
hesitated sixteen day before accepting the
democratic endorsement, but finally and
foolishly accepted it."
Thla wa the beginning of the end, the
speaker continued. In effect, as he out
lined what purported to be hi clashes with
Charles . F. Murphy, leader of Tammany
hall, disagreement which he said resulted
In hi refusal to be dictated to- by the
leader and hi ultimate defeat because
Tammany scratched him. "I was slaugh
tered and sacrificed in New York City."
he said. "On every dead wall flamed a
giant poster 'how to cut Hearst and vot
for Hughes.' To every Tammany voter
wa aent a (ample ballot, 'how to cut
Hearst and vote for Hughes.' For all this
advertisement and Information, Tammany
paid the bills."
In hi series of addresses which were
practically the same in all instance. Mr.
Bannard ald In part:
"Let u turn over a new leaf and agree
that there are no spoils coming to a city
officer, that he can only tako his salary,
