substituted petition In his suit against
the Clark Implement company, alleging
that he has an equitable interest In the
actual profits of the defendant company
from 1903 up to the date when his con

that E. C. Merwin, who owned a majority of
the stock, chairman of the managing board
of the company, arbitrarily established
what he declared to be a safe dividend,
but without regard to possible losses, and
arbitrarily fixed the amount which Clark
was to recleve over and above his salary
of $1,800 per year.
Clark asks an order for an accounting
and examination of the company's books
during the period specified.

LOGAN WANTS KEW COURT HOUSE
Harrison County Will Vote on SlOO,
000 Bonds Monday.
LOGAN, la., Jan. 8.-(Speclal.)-Monday
the voters of Harrison county will pass
upon the question of erecting a new $100,
000 court house.
The vaults of the present court house
have been pronounced by an experienced
architect as not affording proper protection
for books of record against fire. In addition
to the vaults not being fireproof they are
also wanting in capacity.
The entire records of the treasurer's of
fice from the organisation of the county
to 189S, are outside the valut both day and
night The recorder's office is another ex
ample of want of vault capacity. In this
offloe 108 books if record are. for want
of room, left outsid the vaults both day
and night. The auditor's office is so over
crowded that a wooden structure has been
erected near the court house, la which
the larger portion -of the records of the
offloe are now stored.
The clerk's office Is another striking
example of exhausted vault capacity. Many
books of record, papers relating to mort
gages, realty and papers used In connection
with past ca.i, for want of room, are left
outside the vaults In filing cases both day
In the west half of the state of Iowa
Harrison county ranks third In point of
wealth and population, but In all of this
territory it has t.ie most inadequate court
house, one that neither affords proper of
fice accommodation nor proper protection
for valuable books of record.

Letter from Chairman Mack.
Norman E. Mack, chairman of the Demo
cratic National committee, waa unable to
be present at the Jackson Day banquet of
Missouri democrats here tonight In a let
ter expressing his regrest at being unable
to attend, Mr. Mack urged the democrats
to get together for the fall elections. Mr.
Mack said he believed the party would
meet with great success in the congres
sional elections next November, which
would aid the democrats In the national
election two years from that time. Mr.
Mack in his letter said in part:
I am glad to see the democrats of
your state getting together ' to celebrate
Jackson's anniversary. All about the
country the anniversary is being celebrated
this year as never before and this Is a
good sign. I firmly believe that the year
WW, upon which we are Just entering,
will be a banner year for democracy, and
that we will meet with great success In the
congressional elections next November
Never was there a time In the history
of political parties when the call for an
aggressive, fighting democracy, a Jackson
democracy, waa more urgent than today
My conception of democracy's highest alni
Is to secure to the Individual citizen the
highest possible benefit of popular govern
ment. When, class, privilege and favor en
trench themselves as factors In the oper
ation of that government surely those of
us who are democrats have our work cut
out. We may differ among ourselves as
to the best way to go about our task but
the traditions of the party established
by Jefferson and Jackson have made it
possible to have a policy on which we
can all agree.

Daniel Guggenheim Sayi Present
Methods Besult in Enormous
Waste of Mineral Resources.
NEW YORK. Jan. . Daniel Guggenheim,
president of the American Smelting and
Refining company, has thought the present
moment opportune to advocate federal reg
ulation of the copper market. Following di
rectly upon the president's special message
recommending similar action in the case of
the railroads, and taken in connection with
recent rumors of a huge combination of all
the copper mining companies, his statement
is received with interest. The American
Smelting and Refining company is capi
talised at $100,000,000, and owns plants in
Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, Illinois,
Utah, Mexico, Alaska and elsewhere.
Mr. Guggenheim bases his recommenda
tions on the demoralization not only in the
business of .mining copper, but among those
interests which use manufactured copper
In their processes, Incident upon fluctua
tions from 25 cents to 11 cents a pound for
copper. Mining, he says, is a hazardous
enterprise, requiring, under modern condi
tions, very large outlays of capital, and In
need more than any other Industry of a
stable market. Stability, he believes, can
best be obtained by federal regulation.
"I deprecate all unnecessary interference
with business on the pan. or the govern
ment," says Mr. Guggenheim, "yet I ap
preciate the necessity for It and cannot but
admire ths result which has been obtained
by ths German government in its effort to
foster German commerce. Many articles
of German production, like our own pro
duction of copper, are largely exported, and
tha German government has taken a very
lively interest In so regulating ths produc
tion and sals of such articles as to bring
about tha full return to the empire war
ranted It by the economic situation.
'Ths pries of copper metal should not be
a matter of speculation, but our aim seems
to bs to sell our product to European cus
tomers at panic prices. Ths people of the
United States are throwing sway millions
of dollars every year and wasting tha min
eral resources of their country by bad
soonomlo policy. Boms means must bs de
vised whereby this uunsatlafaotory condi
tion may bs duos away with."
