COWNIE DEMANDS INQUIRY
Former Claimant Wans Qrand Jury to
Look Into Charges.
ANSWEtt TO THE GOVERNOR
Is Willing; to Go to Penitentiary It
Aecnaatlons Are Tree If Falae,
Demands Pnnlahment of
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DE8 MOINES, May 2.-Speclal.) The
developmenta of the last week In the mat
ter of alleged misconduct of state officials
In regard to the former management of the
state school for girls at Mitchellvllle will
undoubtedly result ln a full Investigation
by the grand Jury to precede the still more
certain Investigation by the legislature
when lt meets. The matter was brought to
a head by the attack made upon Chairman
John Cownle by Governor Carroll when the
latter gave out a report made to him by
the Board of Control, alleging that respon
sibility for the outbreak at the Mitchell
vllle school must rest upon Mr. Cownle.
No hint of this had been given prior to
the forced resignation of Mr. Cownle some
weeks ago. It now transpires, however.
that the governor had in his possession
some affidavits which he showed to his
close friends and which are said to indi
cate that Mr. Cownle was himself guilty
of grave offenses in connection with the
school. As soon as Mr. Cownle had replied
vigorously to the chargea of the governor,
the latter came out In a atatement In which
he made accusations against Mr. Cownle
hitherto not suggested and going much
further in attacking him than ever before,
In short, It Is alleged that for several years
under a former superintendent the school
had been mismanaged and that Mr. Cownle
was a party to the wrongs committed there.
On the other hand, it la pointed out that
If what the governor says Is true, then all
the members of the board must have known
of the facts, and It Is Impossible to con
ceive how the governor himself could have
avoided knowledge of the same. Now Mn
Cownle has demanded that the matter be
Investigated and If the accusations of the
governor are true he says he will be will
ing to go to the penitentiary, but If not
true, then he shall Insist upon the persons
responsible for the circulation of ths
slanders being punished to the limit of the
law. He says the matter has- no relation
whatever to the primary election as far as
he Is concerned and lt will go on regard
less of the outcome of the primary election.
But the net result of the whole matter Is
to raise a feeling that either there has been
very bad management of the state Institu
tions the last year, with suspicion resting
on practically all of them, or that there
has been a gross case of dragging the
matter Into politics without reason.
Minor Places on Ticket.
While the major part of the contest ln
Iowa la of course, on the head of the
ticket, which will be the controlling matter
lor the Whole state, there has been much
lively campaigning for minor places and
In Bomo parts of the state this Is regarded
as more Important than the governorship.
mere are three candidates for attorney
general. It Is regarded as oertaln that
Senator George Cosson of Audubon Is ln
the lead. He has gained much remits be
cause of his connection with the movement
for better laws for securing all law en-
lorcement, and his personal connection
with the office of attorney general, where
he Is special counsel. Speaker Guy II.
Feeley of Waterloo Is. however, an ancrai-
stve candidate and probably will receive

For Railroad Commission.
There are six candidates for railroad
commissioner. Colonel D. J. Palmer of
Washington, the veteran of the board, is
making his fifth race, with good nrosneots
of success. He has long been known as
the essentially conservative memher anrl
has always stood In opposition to anv radi
cal action that would harm buslneea. It
seems probable that his fellow townsman.
Clifford Thorne, who Is exactly of opposite
type, will be the high man In the bunch.
Thorne Is attorney for the farmers and
t nippers in securing good rates and Is an
expert In rate matters. James H. Wllsnn
of Adair, who Is an old sollder, will recolve
a large vote. The farmers and shippers
have picked Thorne and Chris Ottosen to
win In the fight The latter is a strona
business man of Humboldt county, of
Scandinavian nativity, and has been an
extensive shipper. Ed Sits of Clay county
and Earl Ferguson of Page county do not
seem to have made much headway.
Not Vrgln Any New Laws.
S;ate Superintendent John F. Rlcara has
made public a statement ln regard to scHool
matters about which there has been much
misunderstanding In the state. He make.
it rlaln that there is no proposal being
urged oy him or the department of educa

of providing for school consolidation. There

EDITOR MOORE FINDS A PL01
Sees an Effort to Minimise Proposed
POLITICIANS THE JEALOUS ONES
Designate. a. As.lalne the Pro-
York Committee In
NEW YORK. May 29. (Special Telegram.)
"That a gigantic plot to minimise as far
aa possible the proposed reception to
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt upon his return
to this country has been concocted by those
1 am firmly convinced."
In charge of the event la a fact of which
This waa the emphatic statement of A. P.
Moore, president and editor-In-chief of the
Pittsburg Leader, who was- In New York
today. Mr. Moore Is a well-known visitor
In New York, and he has taken special in
terest In the arrangements for the coming
reception to the former president Being a
personal friend and a great admirer of the
colonel, he says:
"There Is no longer room to doubt that
an effort Is being made by political enemies
to cheat the people out of their opportunity
to greet their friend and benefactor. There
Is a fear on the part of ambitious dema
gogues, predatory corpoiatlons and others
who dislike the fearless Roosevelt that the
reception planned for this great republican
leader will outshine even that accorded that
other great leader, U. S. Grant or Admiral
George Dewey, the hero of Manila bay.
To Limit Demonatrntlon.
"Despite the fact that Colonel Roosevelt
himself has expressed his desire that the
proposed reception be national In Its scope,
Influences are at work to limit the demon
stration to as small a proportion as pos
sible. What Roosevelt himself wants seems
to make no difference to the men who havs
the matter ln hand. They are proceeding
as if the main thing waa to get It all over
and out of the way as soon as possible,
denying the people the right to see Roose
velt and to shake him by the hand. It is
plain that politics are back of It all; that
the factional politicians and the great
money Influences of New York and Wash
ington are conspiring to cast a damper on
this extraordinary event, and that unless
the people themselves take the bull by the
horns there Is a real danger that the re
ception to the former president on his
home coming will fall below the standard
set by previous events of the kind. This
would Indeed be shameful to all the people
of the United Statea, after the magnificent
receptions and ovations Colonel Roosevelt
has received abroad.
"Colonel Roosevelt's letters to friends In
this country expressed a determination not
to accept any reception tha did not afford
an opportunity to all the people of the
country to greet him. He I sincere In his
desire to have as many of, the people come
to New York as could do so, and he was
then, and Is now, ready and willing to greet
each Individual If such a thing p within the
bounds of possibilities.
Parnde Up Narrow Streets.
"But If present arrangements are to be
carried out not only Colonel Roosevelt,
out many xnousanas ot nis mends, are
going to be greatly disappointed. As lt Is
now planned, the reception will be nothing
more than a brief parade on a few narrow
streets of some prominent New York and
Washington politicians, a few Rough
Riders, a string of carriages containing the
reception committee and other things de
signed to make the' honor guest as Incon
spicuous as possible. These streets will be
so Jammed with men, women and children
that Uvea will be in danger. A view of
Colonel Roosevelt from the sidewalk will
be almost out of the question, and there
will be such Indecent haste about the whole
thing that not one-half of the people who
want to see the colonel will be able to do so.
"Everyone who has even been In New
York City knows the difficulty that will
accompany any attempt to crowd Into the
narrow confines to which t:e land parade
Is to be limited by the oommlttee. In fact,
had It not been for the colonel's own ex
pressed wish that there be a land parade,
the committee would hare vetoed even that
part of the reception. Influences In opposi
tion to the eolonel appear to have got pos

It Is proposed to diminish the luster of the
"The politicians give every evidence that
they fear Roosevelt's wonderful poptlsrlty,
and they have surreptitiously set on foot
a movement to keep It within bounds. The
Idea of the committee that lt might be
surpected of working up an ovation for
Colonel Roosevelt If It erected a raised
platform at Battery pary and conducted a
formal review. Is preposterous. No one
needs to "worx up' any reception for
Roosevelt and It Is the merest conceit and
Insufferable egotism on ths part of any
one who might suppose he could do such a
thing. Roosevelt needs no 'working up;'
If the committee will merely throw open
the gates, the people will attend to the
For the Favere Ones.
"It was the understanding that the New
York committee was to have charge only
of the details and that opportunity was to
be afforded for the organisation of a na
tional committee. The New York commit
tee haa not met since Ita appointment and
no Information of any account haa yet been
given to the public except ln little driblets,
most of which seemed to be for the pur
pose of repressing the enthusiasm of the
people, rather than enoouraglng it. It Is
going to be impossible. It seems, for any
body outside of a few favored ones to take
any part whatever in the reception. ' Now
the people are not coming to New York to
soe the committee or the police or the
Rough Riders; what they want Is to see and
to cheer Teddy.
"Although It la absolutely certain that
New York wilt be Jammed with people,

been made to take care of visiting delega
tions or cltlxens from other states, other
than giving them permission to stand In the
streets, lr they can find room to do so, and
watch th little processlen go by. To my
way of thinking the only sensible thing to
do Is to have a reviewing stand and a pro
cession, which could be arranged within a
few days If the oommlttee were to send
out notices that they are prepared to wel
come visitors who desire to march with
brass bands, ete.
"Politics undoubtedly have everything- to
do with the formation of such an asslnlna
program aa that which the New York com
mittee haa partially prepared.
