world. Ho thought ho could do better In
the west nnd started out with a hopeful
heart Ho sought employment In many
directions, but ho was unskilled and
failed. His only resource was that of a
common laborer. Ills undersized body,
poorly nourished, was unequal to the
strain and he failed.
Joined the llohor.
Discouragements Induced apathy nnd ho
joined tho great nnny of hoboes. Kven In
that class ho was Inferior nnd suffered
hunger where others wcro well fed.
One nfternoon last February he reached
Omaha. Thero was only one place for
him to go for shelter and thnt was the
pollco station. Ho staid there one night
nnd was turned out with tho order to got
out of town. Ho reached Council Bluffs
on Saturday afternoon nnd soon found
his way Into the. city jail, where ho re
mained until Monday. Monday afternoon
he heard again tho old order, "move on."
He was thinly clad nnd faced the Febru
nry cold nt Its most chilling point. Not
able to meet on terms of anything but
Inferiority tho members of tho tramp
nrmy constantly flowing In and out of
tho city via the boxcar route, he started
to walk nlonn. following the tracks of the
Great Western railroad. Ho reached a
point twelve miles from Council Bluffs
when darkness came. There were cheer
ful lights In the farmhouses nnd hn fre.
qnently heard shouts of merry laughter.
"I oven wished that I might hav been
oorn a cow, a pig or a horse so I could
have had a cozy stall, a warm eont nnd
Plenty to eat." ho said bitterly, detailing
his experiences. "I was down nnd out
and did not care what became of mo or
what I did. and when the thought enme
to wreck and rob a train It seemed ns
good ns anything elso. I piled tie on
the track In two places, hoping thnt a
train would come along nnd be wrecked
and I could get a chance to tako some
thing, rob anybody or anything I could."
A freight train, moving at a slow spwd,
coming from the east, encountered the
last obstruction Holmes placed on the
track. Tho train was stopped nnd the
ties removed. Holmes, expecting n pas
senger trnln from tho west, had gone
back a mile, where he had placed the
first pile, and wns nearby when the trnln
crow stopped nnd removed the ties.
Holmes was put aboard the train and
brought bnck to Council Bluffs und lodged
in mo city jail, with tho crime committed
that gavo him n llfo sentence. The mnn
will bo confined at hard labor nt Fort
Madison. Ho took his. sentenco Indif

The hopo expressed by Alderman Fisher
chairman of tho fire and light committee
of the city council, that If bids for moro
than $2,000 worth of flro hoso could bo
secured without the annoynnco of hav
ing fifteen or twenty energetic salesmen
lnvado tho city and disrupt tho digestive
apparatus of the members of tho council
by insisting upon $50 banquets, the cost
of these superfluous entertainments might
dp neaucted from tho prico finally to be
paid for the hose, did not appear to bo
realized last night when a big batch of
bids wero opened. With perhaps ono or
two exceptions, tho prices ran nlonr verv
evenly on tho lines of previous purchases.

There were eight bids submitted and
the prices ranged from $1.25 per foot for
the highest nnd 75 cents for tho lowest.
All of the bids wero referred to the
fire and light committee nnd chief of the
flro department for tabulation to report
nt tho next meeting.
Protests ngalnst the Improvements

granted him permission to extend his
show windows on the Main street eight

of a resolution renewing agreement per

The Great Western railroad servd
notice that It disclaimed responsibility
and liability for clogged waterways at

A communication from the mavor d.
daring that the use of the street flusher
han been prevented by crtaln mmbrs of

merited criticism for permitting dirty

cussion and led to the prompt approval
of a resolution directing the street su.

The houso failed to pass a very lra
portnnt road bill which came from the
highway committee, but which was
amended In various ways after It reached
the floor of tho house. It was the first
serious effort made to provide for the
financing of the rond movement by a
safe method. It provided for road dis
tricts, the Issue of bonds by counties and
the construction of surfaced roads where
the people of tho district wero willing
to pay for the same. But tho reactionary
element which Is determined that nothing
shall be done toward permanent roads
prevailed and the bill failed. An effort
may be made to get a similar bill
through the senate nnd again before the

It Is conceded that the legislature will
remain In session all the coming week
and possibly Into the next one. The pre
liminary talk Is of adjournment on tho
17th, but nobody anticipates that the
work can be finished by that time.
The large appropriation and taxation
bills havn as yet to be passed or pre
pared. They will call for more or less
of discussion and time must be taken to
consider them. Thero Is fear that If
hasty action Is taken for adjournment
this will not be done.
No Iiirouir Tux In Iorra.
The bill for a submission to tho vote of
the people tit Iowa a proposed constitu

To Adopt Tax I) 111.

commission, nnd giving power to the
state to secure uniformity of taxation.
The committee on ways and means In-
trodurod amendments thnt nlll be of
fered so thero will he no new offices
created, but tho whole matter will go Into
tho hands of tho ntntn executive council
for its nrtlon. This will remove a large
part of the opposition which has been
directed nt tho crenllon of u now state
commission, it Is believed thnt a very
strong effort will now bo made In both
houses to pass the bill.
Governor Clarke has been warmly con
gratulated by many people of the stnto
for having succeeded In getting the leg
islature to adopt a mlllnge tax for the
enlargement of capltol grounds. General
G. M. Dodge of Council Bluffs, chnlrmnn
of tho Alllnon Monument commission,
wrote him saying
'! not only want to coneratulnte vnu
but to thank you most heartily for your
success In having passed tho bill for
tho development of tho capltol grounds.
You have no Idea what a relief nnd sat
isfaction It Is to 1110. and I know It
was your personnl Influence and Inter,
est In the matter that brought It about.
And I want to say to you I think It will
bo ono of the most Important features
of your administration and of this leg
Islature. nnd you mnny welt bo proud
of It, for when theso grounds are ob
tained and worked out 011 tho general
Masqueruy plan, thn Iowa capltol will
have a better setting than nny state
capltol In the nUltetl Stntes. And thero

tho Jobbers, aro up In arms over a pro

sell the same. Tho scheme Is to force
tho patent tnedlclno trado out of tho de.

also be a great hindrance to tho gon

havo been Introduced Into In tho session
Is now clear, it is in tho hands of
the sifting committee.
Governor Clarko caused to be recalled
to tho senate a bill In regard to un
professional conduct on tho part of doc
