A telegram received yesterd iy afternoon
frpm RbfH r. Wallace, president of tho

! the next meeting of the League of Iowa
Munlc.pallties at Council Bluffs, sue
: reeded In their undertaking. The next
I annual meeting of the league will be held
j h ro In September, Win.
The I.ragur of Iowa Municipalities Is
on" of the most Important urgnnimtloiis
In the slste and Is the one that Is exclu
stvely devoting Its energies toward secur
Ing conditions that wlil remove handicaps
under which all Iowa towns and" cities
labor, due to legislation and nr 'hnlc laws
that were enacted away back near the
territorial days Council Bluffs has taken
a lending part In the work of the league
and It was the desire to have the next
meeting held here so the delegates from
all the other cities In the slnte can sec
and brltrr appreciate some of the dis
advantages that have caused Bluffs mem
bers of the state legislature to struggle
for better corporation tax laws. Mayor
Snyder, members of the city council and
heads of all departments went to Burling,
ten as the city's representatives and
President Wallace and other members
represented the Commercial dub. They
laid their plans carefully and foil confl-
dent of securing the next meeting of the
league ior me reason inai r-pcreiary
Frank 1. Pierce and all of the officers of
the league favored the Bluffs. There was
Considerable of a fight, but the Bluffs
men won easily.
The league Is almost of the proportions
of a political state convention. It has
about l.COi' members and there will prob
ably be about 600 present. The sessions
last three days. In the league are a num
ber of divisions, including the city clerks,
engineers, auditors and treasurers, con
sidering and discussing matters that are
of special Interest to them. Not a phase
of munlclpsl business Is neglected. New
Issues and live subjects are presented
and discussed by some of the brightest
men In the state. The legislative com
mittee Is always coinposed of members
of the legislature, both house and senate,
and the chairman Is always a man who
has arrived at the distinction of being a
leader In the legislature.
The meeting of the league at Burling
ton, which closed yesterdsy, has been a
very profitable one and Its Influence will
be felt In the legislature this winter.
BACK TO COUNCIL BLUFFS;
FORCED TO LEAVE CONGO
Thomas Cox, a former Council Bluffs
man and for a number of years a general
foreman for E. A. Wlckham, has returned
to the city after a world-girdling expedi
tion. He came to Council Bluffs directly
from the Congo country In east Africa,
where he waa engaged In looking for cop
per and diamonds and Investigating tne
general mineral richness of the country
for a big syndicate of American, English
and Belgian capitalists. He was driven
out of there on July 26 by the threats of
invasion by the Germans of the German
East Africa colony. . - .
After leaving Council Bluffs, where he
spent the greater part of his boyhood.
Mr. Cox drifted into the mining regions
of the west and soon developed great apti
tude for the mining business. . Ha got
into touch with the Guggenheim! In Colo
rado and was sent by them into Mexico.
He succeeded In every undertaking and
was finally given the very large commis
sion of prospecting the Immense Congo
country with the especial view of dis
covering its degree of richness in copper
and diamond fields. His task waa only
partially completed when the kaiser's
trouble enveloped him.' The patriotic
Germans thought It proper to get Into
the Belgian Congo possessions and kill
all the Englishmen and Belgians. The
fact that he was known to be employed
by the Ouggenhelma cast suspicion upon
him In tha estimation of the Belgians and
the Germans regarded htm as an English
man or at lease a "spy," and the country
became very unhealthy.
Mr. Cox says the mineral wealth of the
Congo country Is enormous. He waa auo
cessful In finding both diamond and cop
per fields of great richness. During his
stay In the city he Is the guest of E. A.
