for Street Department
Councilman J. Chris Jensen at the ml
Ine; of the city council Monday Insisted
that the street railway company should be
compelled to tirlliK Its tracks on Avenue A
to giade. Ho rn,M that on November IS of
last year tha elty council by resolution di
rected City 'Solicitor Kimball and City
Ki.gimer Ktnyre to take the necessary steps
to compel the street railway company to do
this, but ut to date, apparently, these offi
cials had Sjot m.ide any move In the matter.
, Mr. Jensen said he did not ask that the
company bring Its tracks up to established
trade all aloriK the avenue, but up to the
grcde at present In use. so that the thor
oughfare could be made passable. As It
now Is. Mrs Jnien declared. In some places
the tracks were from one to two feet be
low tha existing grade and In other places
they were as high as two feet above the
'"It seems to me that the street railway
pecple must take us for fouls, or else they
are playing for time," declared Councilman
Yuunkerman a he proceeded to castigate
tha street railway company for neglecting
to comply Willi the orders of the city coun
cil. Councilman Morgan did not agree with
Councilman Jensen as to not requiring the
company to bring its tracks up to the estab
lished grade. Ha thought that since the
grade had been established the tracks
should be made to conform with It.
The matter was disponed of for the time
being by the city clerk being directed to
call attention of the city solicitor, city
engineer and the officers of the street rail
way company to the resolution of Novem
ber 16, 1908.

The "World-Herald invites the Special Attention of its

ename'ed street signs a new coat of paint,
which the councilman from the First ward
declared was badly needed. "1 see no
reason why the street commissioner and
his men could not employ their leisure
time this winter when they are not work
ing on the streets in painting these street
signs," said Mr. Yojnkerman. The mayor
said hf would see to It that the street
forre would have plenty to do during lt-
"leisure time," and the matter of repaint
ing the street signs was permitted to drop
In the waste paper basket.
A representative of the residents In the
Sixth ward succeeded In having the matter
of the distribution of six lights in that
section of the city referred to the commit
tee on fire and light with power to act In
the absence from the city of Councilman
Felllnger of that ward.

EVASION OF TAXES SCORED
Supreme Court of Iowa Censures Man
Who Got Land Free.
SHOULD EE GLAD TO PAY THEM
Whisky Hills Derlcred ot Collect
able In State of Intra M lilt
Itate Allowed by Kiprrii
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
PES MolNKS. Nov. 21. ( Special.) An
echo of the old railroad land litigation In
hnrthw estern Iowa came to light In the
supreme court in a decision which scored
a lind buyer In O'Brien county for refus
ing to f.ay tax s on land he got practical!;
free. The land owner, J. W. Hlshop.
bought the land In 1"-S2 from the Sioux
City Hallway company. A long litigation
followed because of overlapping railroad
claims, and finally the land went back to
the government. Later, Hlshop bought the
land, but refused to pay taxes for the
yenrs when the title was nominally In the
govt rniiient. The courl practically decides
that during all this time the government
merely held the land In trust for the pur
chaser and anyway, having obtained his
land not by his own right, but by grace
of the government, "such a recipient ought
to bo willing to repay 'grace for grace' and
to bear cheerfully his proportionate share
of the burdens ot a gracious government."
Whisky llllls .Not Collectable.
Tho Iowa supreme court la very strict In
upholding the Iowa law which makes It
Impossible to collect debts due for llque.r
sales. In a case from lioona county, de
cided today, wherein H. Arle sought to
foreclose a mortgage, it was held the evi
dence clearly showed some connection be
tween the debt and a certain large bill
for whisky sold to the firm of Mann &
Co., and that because of this fact the debt
is null and void In Iowa. There was no
question but that the whisky was sold In
violation of the law.

Des Moines Ministerial Association
Will Take Steps to Change
(From a Siaff Correspondent.)
DES MOINKS.j Nov. 23. (Special Tele
gram.) At a well attended meeting of the
local Ministerial association, the committee
on public morals was Instructed to make
inquiry about what can be done toward
putting a stop to Sunday theaters In Des
Moines. Investigation by leading mem
bers showed that the average attendance
at the Sunday theaters Is far ahead of the
attendance at the largest churches of the
city. At six theaters yesterday the total
attendance was about 14,000, while one
church reported an attendance of 4,700 and
another 1.500, yet most of the churches had
very light attendance.

Sends an Appeal
to All People
Russian Author Urges Men of Every
Nation to Refuse to Serve as
OENKVA, Nov. 23 Count I.eo Tolstoi.
by way of Switzerland, has Riven another
tnessaRe to the world. At an anti-military
meeting held at Hientie, when 100 Swiss and
foreitn delegates were assembled, Count
Tolftol's appeal to the people was read
amid great enthusiasm. It had been writ
ten especially for the recent peace con
gress at S;ockholm and would have been
greatly embarrassing on account of Its
violence to the Swedish authorities, who,
however, were saved by the timely strike
nhlch caused a postponement of the con
gress. Later it was arranged to read It
at Utrlin, but the police prohibited It. Tts-
terday Tolstois friends In Geneva, hav
ing obtained permission, delivered his mes
sage at Bienne, Tolstoi, In it appeals to
the good sense of the world's peoples to
refuse to serve as soldiers, either volun
tarily or under pressure, even If that re
fusal entails punishment. Killing by sold
iers, he asserts, Is a criminal act.
The message appeals, not to governments
but directly to peoples and their good
sense to stop growth of armies and navies.
Are Well Treated
British Suffragette Says This is
Reason They Cannot Appreciate
Their Political Slavery.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23. Mrs. rhllip
Snowden, wife of a liberal member of the
isrltlsh Parliament and a noted suffra
gette, tried to see President Taft today.
Hhe failed. Protesting that she does not
belong to the militant branch that made
the lives of British statesmen miserable
for the last few months, Mrs. Snowden
left the White House announcing that she
would endeavor tomorrow again to run
the gauntlet that shut her off from the
chief executive of the United States.
Mrs. Snowden waa something of a disap
pointment to the members ot the Woman's
Suffrage movement here. In a lecture to
night at the Masonic temple, she declared
that American women could not entertain
the movement seriously. This, she ex
plained, was by reason of the fact that
there are some 2.000,000 more men than
women In this country, and that the women
here are treated so well that they fall to
appreciate their political slavery.
In England, she said, tho women out
number the men by 1,200,000 and the situa
tion Is reversed.

LIBERALS TO FIGHT LORDS
Statement by Lord Loreburn Starts
Campaign Against Upper House.
LIVELY DEBATE ON BUDGET
Lord Lanadowne limialt that Bill
Contain Legislation Ippcr Honne
Una Hrjrrtrd and Drfenda
Itluht to Vote I poii It.
IDNHON, Nov. 23. The main Interest In
the historical debate today In the House
of Lords on the budget centered on the
Kiave ft duration oC the liberal policy
v.hlch fell from Lord Loreburn, lord high
chancellor In the course of an elouuont
peroutlou. Deliberately pausing and ad
justing his glasaes, he read slowly from a
piece of paper:
"It Is my opinion that It Is lmpovslbln
that any liberal government can ever again
btar the heavy burden of office unless It
Is secured against a repetition of treat
ment such us our measures have had to
undergo for the last four years."
This statement hud an elei tricnl effect
upon the liberal members of the House of
Commons, who crowded the public gal
leries. Quitting the galleries they surged
Into the lobhli s In a tate of excitement,
under the conviction that they had heard
the government's last word before the
general election, that Premier AbijulUi will
make a similar declaration la the House
of Commons next week and that the long
delayed campaign against the lords has
now begun In real earnest.
It was held that Lord Loreburn's state
ment could only mean that no liberal
leuder henceforth will accept office unless
he receives a pledge from the crown that
sufficient peers will be appointed on the
premier's nomination to st-ruie the House
of Commons against Interference by the
Ilouso of Lords In financial matters.
I'osltlun of the l.orda.
Afler the Erl of Crewe, Lord privy
seal, had formally moved the second read
ing of the budget bill, without comment,
Lord Lansdowne, leader of the opposition,
who was so hoarse that he couid scarcely
be heard, moved Its rejection. He quoted
precedents to show that althoiigh th?
House of Lords cjuld not amend a fin tnce
bill, it had full right to discuss It and to
throw it out If It so willed. lHsldts, the
pnsent hill, he argued, had tacked to It,
legislation furh as land taxation and In
creased llcens duties, which the Ilou e of
Lords already had rejs cud and w hich had
been plated In the bill with a view to
ousting the loids from their legitimate op.
portunit of dealing with these measures.
No self-respecting aecond chamber would
tolerate such treatment.
What he asked, was to prevent home
rule from being Introduced in the f Inane )
bill. There was r.o limit to such abuses.
The unionists opposed license duties be
cause they were crushing In their severity,
the same applied to land taxes. The peo
ple, he said, not having been consulted by
the lords have a clear duty not to de
cree the final extinction of the bill, but
to Insist that before it became law. thu
country should be allowed an expression

sidered the consequences of the rejection
of the bill and were ready to face them.
Lord Loreburn replied, contending that
there was nothing in the bill foreign to
finance with which the House of Corn
coin had the exclusive right to deal.
What was embodied In the bill was not
new In the United States and Germany,
and was not only approved by tha pres.nc
but by past Houses of Commons.
Kcsldes the lord chancellor, many peers
addressed the house, but Interest waned.
Tho duke of Norfolk, who supported Lord
Lansdowne's resolution, confessed that the
lords had a serious and anxious problem
to face, but that should not daunt them
In performing their duty.
