Place of Meeting, 1911 Fort Dodge.
After electing the above officers for the
ensuing year and selecting Fort Dodge as
the place of ; meeting for Mil, yesterday
afternoon the Iowa Independent Telephone
association completed the business of Its
annual convention. .....
No action was taken by the convention
In the matter of merging the independent
telephone companies of the state along the
line proposed by the Nebraska association.
The matter was generally discussed, but
the urgent need of such an Incorporation
was not deemed necessary at this time, al
though the merging of the different inde
pendent systems of the state may be ef
fected at a later date. The matter of tak
ing steps to Incorporate the several inde
pendent, companies was referred to the ex
ecutive committee, which will prepare the
necessary papers and report back at the
convention tiext year.
The Iowa independent telephone com
panies, It was stated, already have a close
organization and, although they are not In
corporated, the convention did not feel that
such a step was of such Immediate Import
ance In Iowa' as It apparently was In Ne

The election ot officers was made on the
recommendation of a nominating commit

Council Bluffs Independent company, was
chairman. There was no contest and the
report of the committee was unanimously
Ottumwa was In the field for the 1911
convention, but withdrew from the contest
when its representatives realized that oFrt
Dodge was favored by a majority of the
members. Ottumwa, however, will go after
the 1912 convention, and. In fact, was prac
tically assured that It will get the meeting
that year. Following the withdrawal of
Ottumwa the selection of Fort Dodffe as
the meeting place for next year was by

September Festival Again
The annual street fait and carnival, which
proved suchV a success In Council Bluffs for
several years, but was discontinued three
years ago, la to be revived. This was de
cided upon yesterday noon at the Crand
hotel, when several business men met at the
Invitation of Mayor Maloney to discuss the
proposition. The sentiment of the meet
ing was unanimous In having another street
fair and carnival Id September and no time
will be lost In getting preparations started.
The proceeds of the carnival. It was de
cided, will be usejyio defraying the ex
penses of the National Horticultural Fruit
exposition. If any balance remains It will
be used In Improving the roads leading Into
the city. v
Those who met. with Mayor Maloney and
discussed the proposition around the lunch
eon table were K. H. Doollttle,' chairman
of the executive committee of the Commer.
clal club; J. P. Hess, president of tho Na
tional Horticultural congress; Freeman L.

exposition, and II. A. Qulnn, Charles-Beno

"We will have a carnival again this fall,"
said Mayor Maioney after the ' lunohenn.
'All present at the meeting expressed
themselves as Jn favor of It and arrange
ments will be made for 11 this coming
week. Some 6f the carnival committee
were out of the city and could not at
tend the meeting, ut they have Vail ox-
pressed themselves as favoring the proposl
"The officers of the National Horticul
tural oongresa will assist In the move-
ment," declared Mr. Hess. "We are going
to have the carnival and, of course, It will
be to our Interest to help all we can. If
we are to have a successful fruit show
again this "year we should be assured of
from $3,000 to. 16,000 to meet any deficit that
might arise. In former years the street
fair and carnival was a paying proposition
and unless something unforeseen should
happen would be again. The carnival has
always proved popular and I believe Vhe
people of Council Bluffs win welcome Ice

desperate effort, when the state slaved Its

The Introduction of Brundrldge's testi
mony was a sudden move on the part of
the State and one for which the defense
had not prepared.
Brundrldge on the witness stand told of
his visit to the Marley home at the time
the shooting took place. He and Guy Mar-

Dow City, going to Loaan. where thv

"Then we went into the house, me fol

his hand. Mrs. Marley was trying to get
him to stop smashing uD the furniture tnrl
dishes. I went on Into the bedroom.
"In a minute or two I heard a shot. I
laid down on the bed and went to sleep."
'Went to sleep!" exclaimed an attorney,
"Yes. I didn't see who was shot drwho
did the shooting." .
Monte Marley, the young son of the dead
oman, outwitted the attorneys for the
fense, -while on the stand yesterday after
noon. The little chap told a concise tale of
the part of the affair that came under his
"Mamma was always afraid of Guv. all

The boy's tone pictured the ablect terror
of the dead woman's life In their home with
tne drunken stepson. Monte told of a day
when Ouy Marley threatened his mother
with a knife, and of her flight to the home
of a neighbor.
"I ran out of the house when T kw (lnv
pick up the gun," he said. "I went Into
tne orcnard, and then I heard tho shot.

FOR TEN YEARS
The general elections in England begin on January 17 and
continue until February I. The dispatches each day will report
the progress of the polling, but in addition to the cable news there
will appear in this paper a special series of articles, direct from
England, by FREDERIC J. HASKIN. y
It is needless to remind the reader of the importance of
this campaign. Whether the Liberals or the Conservatives win,
the British Constitution will be changed. If the Liberals are
victorious, it means that the Lloyd-George budget will stand, and
that the House of Lords will either be abolished or so reformed
as to make it entirely ineffective in legislation. If the Conserv
atives win, it means that the House of Lords will be given the
power to veto financial legislation in Parliament, a power not
exercised since the day of Cromwell and Charles I. Further
more, a Liberal victory will mean the adherence of the British
nation to a program of social reform which includes the prin
ciple of the single-tax and other features which are termed
"socialistic" in America. A Conservative victory, on tne other
hand, will mean an abandonment of the Free Trade policy, to

the senators thus summoned to the Whits
House this afternoon are members of the
committee on postof flees and postroads,
Mr. Penrose is ohatrman. Senator Carter
Is sponsor for the messure. Put some sen
ators, It was suggested in reply to the
president, are not warm advocates of postal
banks. In fact. It Was paid that such
slates as Massachusetts and Pennsylvania
great strongholds of savings Institutions
are' not at all In favor of the scheme.
But, the president argued, the republican
platform called tor postal savings banks,
and surely the senators were going to re
deem ths party pledges.
House Is All Rlaht.
But what about the house? This wa
propounded as a poser. ,
President Taft la said o have assured
the senators that they heed not worry
about the house. It Is said that there Is
every reason to believe that the house Is
oouilng around all right; that its members
are com lng" to the president for the very
good reason that they have no other place
to go. ' .
'It la a cas of water running down
hill," sold one of the president's callers
today. "Hi does not have to go to the
regulars or the insurgents, either. They
have gut to come to hlra. Avery man on
Capitol hill Is looking for another term
and he's got to have something to go before
the people on. Congrms has got to do
something and all the republicans, regard
less of the fight against Cannon or the
rules committee, are going to vote for Mr.
So Jt happened when Messrs. Penrose,
Crsne and Carter left ths White House,
the latter acting as spokesman for the
' "The postal savings bank proposition will
become a law a this session."
The postal bonks, however, will npt be
the first of the Taft measures considered.
The president ranks his recommendations
for changes in the Interstate commerce
taw as of first Importance and he so
Indicated his position to the senators this
' The president told his callers also that
he regarded at least one of the conserva
tion bills he has recommended to congress
as of prims importance. This Is the bill
to validate ths wlthdrswsl of lands oon
tatnlng water power sites, coal and phos
phates. Tne laws as to the disposition of
these lands can be worked out and
threshed over st ths convenience of con
gress. The Important thing, the president be
llevea, la to validate the withdrawals
which are msde under the former admin
istration and under the ten months of ths
present administration under the shadowy
power ot he secretary of the Interior.
. The president wants this newer to be
made unquestionable. The valuabls Alaska
eoai lands are Included In tbe withdrawals
which Mr. Taft .Is anxious to have vali
dated. Senators Penrose, Carter and Crane took
of an electorate.
rw, F lYA-
back this word to the capltol late Joday
and passed It along the line. President
Taft believes that the senate should go
ahead with these three measures at onoe,
and then, he says, the house can get them
In some sort of shape, can havs ths bene
fit of the senate discussion and oan put
ths measures through In short time onoe
the supply bills are disposed of.
The president is confident that Senator
Aldrlch will do all he can to further the
passage ot the. postal savings bank bill.
This bill, It Is argued, will give the leader
ot the senate an opportunity to show to ths
people of the country that they are to get
their share of the benefits of forthcoming
Mr. Aldrlch Is anxious to secure the sup
port of the country for the new currency
laws and the new central bank of issue, or
whatever form the legislation may take,
and the president believes the best way to
secure this support is to provide for the
postal banks. Ths president believes, first
of all, that the postal banks will not Inter
fere to any appreciable extent with the
savings banks which pay from I to 1 per
cent as against the i per cent Interest pro
posed to be paid by , government deposi
tories. - HS believes the government banks
will bring out many millions of dollars
now resting In stockings and sewed up In
mattresses by timid and thrifty people.
He thinks aUo it will prevent the great
outflow of cash to European banks each
Arcusnent to Banks.
The argument to ths banks and financiers
Is that the deposits In the government banks
will permit the government to take up ths
$730,000,000 of 2 per cent government bonds
that have been Issued and which are a
drug on the market.
Many of the national banks were com
pelled to take thess bonds because they
feared their bank note circulation would bs
seriously limited otherwise. Tbe banks are
said to have lost manr millions of dollars
through the depreciation of these bonds
and it is generally reported they stand to
lose a great deal more when the Panama
canal bonds are Issued in the near future.
Throughout the remainder of the present
congress it Is agreed the caucus rule Is to
prevail In the house of representatives.
This state of affairs is credited to ths ef
forts of the president. The power of
Speaker Cannon and the rules committee
has been so far Impaired that the caucus
ha coins as the best and fairest means of
providing for legislation, Before each
caucus Is held the purpose of the gathering"!
Is to be announced and no other subject
is to be considered. Regulars and Insur
gents alike are to be Invited to suoh cau
cuses and In this way the administration
believes It is assured of the support of all
republicans. . '
