COMPANY JTJND LACKING
A doten member of the Tinley
family, J. J. Hughe, Dr. R. B. Tubb
and several members of the Wlckham
families were among the Council
Bluffs people who returned yesterday
from Des Moines, where they spent
all of the time possible at Camp
Dodge, visiting the Dodge Light
Guard. They added considerable to
the uniformly good report that have
come from Des Moines showing the
irreproachable good conduct and high
stage of efficiency the young men

Bob Wickham, steaming with

was Will Maurer, also a corporal,
working out another squad. Every
member of the company was doing his

The only thing the young men were
found to lack was a company cash
fund, and in this respect they were
said to be the most deplorably situ
ated of all the companies in camp.
When the boys left here Captain
Powell was given a company fund
of $50, contributed by a few of his
friends and business men. From this
fund all of the little incidentals had
to be provided, including the cash
fares for the return of the young
men who were rejected or sent home
for other reasons. The bovs had to
cay for all of the straw they used for
tneir ocas, provide an oi ne nine
extra for company mess tent, includ
ing even butter. It alao costs 40 cents
car fare to make a round trip from
the camp to the city. The result has
been that many of the real little com
fort that other companies are enjoy
ing are denied the Bluff boy. When
the Glenwood boy left home the citi
zens of the town raised a company
fund of $800, and the members of the
company have been permitted to en
joy luxuries that are denied their
comrades in arm.
Thi situation was called to the at
tention of J. J. Hughe after he had
made a cash donation to the exhausted
fund sufficient to permit the boy to
have butter for their (upper Thurs
day night Yesterday he suggested
the collection oi a runa ncr iu wc
amount of S7S or $100 and at once
put the plan in operation. Postmaster
George F. Hughes started it with a
check for $5 and others followed. It
is believed that wnen puonc attention
ia called to the matter that the desired
amount will be quickly raised. All

of the guardsmen to take the required
oath does not in any manner change
their status in the National Guard.

Likely to Be Fight
Over the Office of
The banks which have been fur
nishing for the last ten years the $75,-
000 bond required from George S.
Davis as treasurer of the school
board, yesterday officially notified
him that the usual custom had been
observed and his official bond had
been extended for the period of an
other year. ... ,
A very pretty controversy hss
arisen concerning the validity of the
bond filed Thursday afternoon by
Joe W. Smith, the new school treas
urer elected last March. The law is
considerably complicated and admits,
as most of the laws do, of several
constructions. Local lawyer-, differ,
and Mr. Davis has been advised that
he will undoubtedly have a right to
maintain his official relation to the
school for the period of another year.
Mr. Smith has been as confidently
assured that there is no question
about the validity of his action and
that nothing occurred to impair
his hold upon the office to which
he was elected by a very large ma
jority of the voters of the city at
the school election on March 14.
The law under which all of the
school bonds have been filed dis
tinctly provides that the treasurer
must fife his bond within ten days
after the official notification of hi
A new law has been recently passed
for the purpose of meeting the con
ditions brought about by the election
of members of the Board of County
Supervisors. One member is elected
a yar in advance of the time he ia
to be inaugurated, and to prevent the
expense and annoyance of filing a
bond a year in advance the law per
mits him to duality by filing the bond
just before he takes office. Although
not specifically stated, several ot tne
local lawyers hold that this law ap
plies to all officers who take their
positions long aite:- the date . of
The office involves a great deal of
responsibility and is purely an hon
orary function. It formerly paid a
salary of about $1,200 year, but a
state law passed several year ago
cut off all of the salary.
The annual meeting of the board
will be held this evening and unless
the courts are appealed to the matter
will be aettled in favor of Mr. Smith.
Treasurer Davis said last evening he
would stand pat and retain the office
until legally dispossessed.
