At the meeting of the headquarters com

from time to time, their reports consisting
of a simple recital of meetings held in
hurches and larga sum of money collected.
The members of the committee were never
able to learn the details of these collec

waa expended. The expenditure was solely
under the direction of the superintendent
and the committee was neither consulted
nor advised, with respect to the details

C. A. Stltzer was a. prosperous druggist.
He was always an nthuslastia hunter and
fisherman and when h went, up to Lake
Erlckson on a . fishing expedition he fell
in love with th place. - He conceived the
idea of making It a great summer resort
and soon his . ideas . asummd tangible

the proposition and succeeded In selling, a
sreat many shares over the state. Lake
Erlckson is a sort of a widening of the
Cedar river and to deepen the lake- and
mako It permanent Mr. Stltzer built a great
cement dam in the river. The floods came
and carried the dam away. Nothing daunted,
he built again on a different plan. Again
the dam was washed out and again he
built. The third dam did not last a long
as either of the others, being washed out
the day after . It . waa completed and ac
cepted by him. In all he sunk about $33,000
in the project before he gave it up.
At one time he intended- to operate an
rloctrlc plant with th vast water power
there and furnish light and power down the
line of the Burlington. He also proposed
building a line of ice houses to be supplied
with pure lake Ice. The money lost in the
successive washing out of the dams so
crippled him financially that n waa forced
to give up these projects and now the sale

WlthlnMwo werks the state executive coun

tho railroad property In Iowa and under
take to make an assessment that will con
form to the general average of vnluatlon on

companies which have all been filed and
tabulated make sueh a showing that there
is very little doubt that the- assessments
will be reduced this oar. The railroads as
.a whole have not been us prosperous In
other years. The gross receipts have been
some larger than In the previous year, but
invariably the net profits have been
smaller. The total net earnlna of all tho
railroads In Iowa, on Iowa business, as
they are able to figure It out, was Jlti.

For a number .of years under previous
administrations the policy has been to In
crease the railroad assessments. Now
the railroads are paying nearly a million
dollar a ,year more taxus In Iowa than
they were ten years ago and w itli very
little larger mileage. The railroad men
claim that the Increase In assessment of
their property has b.cu nil too rapid.
As soon as the railroad nssctmnent is
completed the council win fix the assess
ment on real propel ty and then figure out
the tax levy lu accordance with Uie or
ders of the general assembly. The council
has very lllilo power over the tax levy
except a to assessment of railroad and
real property. The levy will be fixed
to as to raise 12,300,000 of taxes on the
