DODGE PARK TOBE IMPROVED
Park Board Reaches Decision and
Orders Work to Commence.
TALK LAKES AND BOULEVARDS
J'.ipcri from Onl of the City to llr
Sccnrrd to Prepare the Plnti
for Ilolnu the I.nnil
arnplnR. The work of Improving the river front
park, to bo known us Dodge lark. In
honor of General Grenvlllo M. Podge. U
to be commenced. This decision was
reached at a special meeting of the park
board yesterday afternoon. May 1 Is the
date fixed for the boKlnnlng of activities.
The first step tnken In Improving the
park was to secure a working plan, avail
able for uso from the beginning to the
end of the work. Tor this purpose It wan
decided to request the presence of a land
scape artist from Minneapolis, a member
of the firm of Morell fk Nichols, recom
mended by Park Commissioner Theodore
"Wlrth while he was here several month
ago. Tho secretary was Instructed to
write ahklng him to come here within the
next few days and make a topographical
map of tho park iwssesslons on the river
front, outlining the main features of the
development .scheme, with special rcfet
ence to the boulevards and the lngo.ns
and lakes to be made so that earth to
be excavated for the artlflcal lakes can
be used In the construction of the boule
The second step was the decision to ad
vertise for bids for tho earth work to bo
done One set of bids calls for the con
struction of a leveo along the Mayne
tract west from tho Thirty-seventh street
pumping statfnn for the purpose of pre
senting overflows from the river. This
will requlro 4,(luo yards of earth, and the
bids must bo In by May 1.
"While the primary purposo now Is tho
construction otf a levee tho work will
nlso become a part of the boulevard that
will extend from tho 'Union Pacific
bridge to Big Inke. Dirts have also been
called for for tho handling of 40,000 yards
of earth neceswiry for the construction
of the boulevards, which must be built
this year as the primary condition of the
gift of forty acres by General Dodge and
others. Title to this land cannot be se
cured until this boulevard Is built. Hid
for this work must bo received by June
1 and the construction must proceed con
stantly until the work Is finished.
Gcnernl Dodgq gave tho most desirable
nna valuable portion of the new park
upon the condition that a boulevard 100
feet wide should be constructed from the
Union Pacific bridge to tho street railway
bridge. Thla becomes tho starting point
of the entire boulevard system that Is to
eventually cost about 140,000.
All of this work will be done In accord
ance with the general plan to be prepared
by the Minneapolis expert. His finished
map will show the park just as It will
appear when finished. It Is planned to
have lakes and lugoon excavated to a
depth that will Insure a constant staEe
of water which will find Its way from the
river through tho sand, and will leave all
of its mud In the sand, making handsome
bodies of pure water.

George 8. Davis, for many yenrs 1 1
treasurer of tho Council Bluffs school
UllMrlct received official notification

rylng It Into effect upon publication.
Upon Its' face the notification does
not appear to mean much either to
Treasurer Davis or to tho public, but
It Is In fact of considerable Interest
to both. It cuts off from the treasurer
all of tho Income that has heretofore
made tho office of school treasurer worth
seck'lng. The old law provided no com
pensation for tho treasurer, but It has
been the universal practice nil ovor the
state for the school treasurers to receive
interest from the banks upon nil cash
balances. Thlr. has never amounted to
less than $1,00) n year In Council Bluffs,
and for the lant several years It has,
exceeded $1.6i0 annually. The treasurer
has had the power to designate the
banks and this has made a bank fight
at every school election. The new
Inw provides for the designation of the
banko and directs that the Interest shall
bo paid to the school fund.
Tho office of school treasurer has
been one not hard to till, for Its
duties hnvo been purely perfunctory
and technical. All of the clerical work
has been done by tho secretary of the
school board nnd the banks Tho
treasurer's duties principally consisted of
attaching his signature to the annual
financial reports prepared by the secre'
tary. There will be no chango lu this
proccduro under the new law, but ull
f the emoluments of the office will go
directly Into tho school fund. Within
the next few days there will bo pa'd
over by tho county treasurer the sum
of MO.000, and as the school year Is about
rady to close Interest will be paid on
this until late In the nutumn, when
another Installment nlmost ns Inrge will
bo forthcoming. Tho Interest on these
balances alone will approximate $1,100.
The new law will divest the office of
Its chlcfcst oharni, nnd tho biennial
truggle for It will no longer bo n dls
turblng element In local politics.

Two Miners Buried

PITTSBURGH, April 26. Exhausted and
almost unconscious, Charles Crawl and
Philip Legler, miners, were rescued alive
from tho Cincinnati mill's of the Monongu-
hcla River Coal and Coke company at
Flnlcyvlllo shortly after midnight this
morning. They had been held prisoners
in the underground workings since thu
disastrous explosion In the mine at noon
Wednesday. In which at least ninety-six
men were killed.
That tho two men survived tho explo

sixty hours Is considered miraculous.

"I entered the mine at 6:20 Wednesday
morning. Legler and I were eating lunch
In the room where we were found when
shortly after 12:30 Wednesday afternoon
we heard a dull explosion which seemed
to be far away. I began to get nervous
when I did not hear the other miners at
work, and I went to Investigate. I found
dead miners lying all around and then I
knew how severe tho explosion had been.
"Remembering my former experience, I
told Legler to follow me and we crawled
Into the workings In an effort to find a
way out. I think we. had ben crawling
fifty-two hours. In that time we had only
a slice of bread aplec. and we quenched
our thirst with sulphur water from the
mine floor. We crawled and crawled and
could not find any way out. I gave up
any hope of ever getting out several
times, but as long aa my strength lasted

WASHINGTON. April 26. - Secretary
Bryan Is not expected to spend more

In official clrcieB today It was BUggesleU
that the energy with which Japan had
protested against tho enactment of tho
nendlm: alien Innd-holdlng legislation In
California had served to obscure the fact
that the many Chinese would be affected
by such laws, though not in proportion
to tho Japanese residents.
The Chinese legation here, though not
ing tho facts, has refrained from lodging
nnv nrotest at the State department
while awaiting instructions from Peking
as well as the Issue of the negotiations
between America ami Japan regarding
tho nuestlon of alien land ownership.
Treaty guarantees, It was pointed out,
would probably gtvo the Japanese prop
erty owners a decided advantage over tho
Chinese in" protecting tholr rights In the
event of discriminatory legislation. The
number of Chinese In California is sold to
be very much smaller than commonly
Mr. Bryan declined to make any state
ment In connctlon with the coming con
ferences with Governor Johnson and the
"My mission," ho said in answer to a
question, "as far as my memory goes, Is

ANTWERP, Belgium, April 26. A youtl
18 years old and a l&-year-old girl wen
the principal characters in a love tragedy
enacted here today. Arm In arm they
climbed to the clock gallery In .the tower
of tha Notre Dame cathedral and from a
height of ISO feet leaped Into space, fall
ing at the feet of passersby.
Every bone in the bodies of the boy and
his companion was broken. As they
hurtled through the air several men and
women who witnessed the sight fainted.
According to the police, the leap from
the church tower was in accordance with
a premeditated double suicide pact.
Tho youth and the maiden had bought
from the porter at tho entrance door
tickets of admission to visit the tower,
from which a wide view Is possible. Tho
porter noticed nothing unusual In their
demeanor as he escorted the couple to tho
stairway and saw them start to climb the
flight of 622 steps leading to the top gal
lery. Entering the clock gallery, the couple
climbed upon the stone balustrade. With
hands clasped they poised themselves for
a moment and then leaped downward Into
the glove market, striking the flags close
to the htstorio Matsy's fountain.
