Position Taken by the Governor
on Insanity Approved
DR. McALLASTER READ PAPER
Superintendents of 8tate Institutions
Favor Executive'a Plan of 8tata
for the 8tate.
Des Moines, Dec. 17.—A lively ar
gument was precipitated in the quar
terly conference of the state board
of control and the superintendents of
the state Institutions when Dr. B. R.
McAllaster of the Cherokee state hos
pital, in a paper read before the con
ference, advocated the voluntary ad
mission of insane persons to the state
The question of insanity in the
State institutions was the theme lor
the morning and Dr. McAllaster said
that the state should permit insane
persons to voluntarily enter the state
institutions. Iiis suggestion raised a
storm of protest from several of the
conferees, their position being that
such a rule would open the way to
untold fraud aud injustice. The op
ponents of the plan dcerared that in
many instances relatives of persons
who had money or property, would in
dure those persons to voluntarily en
ter the state insane hospitals and
then while they are confined there,
gain control of the money or prop
The entire question of insanity was
thoroughly discussed and the confer
ees commended the position taken
by Governor Carroll in a recent ad
dress, wherein he advocated the cre
ation of a special commission to
make a study of insanity among the
patients of the state institutions as
well as a study of the causes of In
sanity in Iowa.
Oust Clerk Brown in Emmet County.
Des Moines.—The supreme court
has ousted C. M. Brown as clerk of
the district court of Emmet county
and ruled that L. Heffalflnger is the
duly qualified clerk for that county.
The decision was given in the case
of State of Iowa on relation of L.
Heffalflnger against C. M. lirown. In
the election of 1908 one John Amund
aon was elected clerk. He died that
month, and the district judge appoint
ed Brown as clerk until the vacancy
was filled. The board of supervisors
at their December meeting selected
Heffalflnger as clerk. Heffalflnger de
manded that Brown turn ovor the
office keys to him. Brown refused and
Heffalflnger brought quo warranto
The opinion of the supreme court,
affirming the district court, which
held that Brown was not entitled to
the office, was written by Justice
Weaver. He said that the district
court is not authorized by the sta
tutes of the state to fill such a va
cancy, either temporarily or other
wise, and holds that when the su
pervisors appointed a man to fill the
vacancy caused by Ainundson's death,
that any power given Brown by the
district court was revoked.
Hotel Law Declared Unconstitutional.
Des Moines.—Iowa's hotel inspec
tion law, providing for a state hotel
inspector and requiring fire escapes
on all hotels, and appliances for per
fect ventilation, is unconstitutional
and therefore null and void. This
construction was put upon it by
Judge McHenry of the district court
in an opinion filed in the case of F.
M. Hubbell against Lafayette Hig
gins, state hotel inspector. The suit
was brought to test the constitution
ally of the law and argued before
the court several weeks ago.

Capt. Loomis Drops Dead.
Cedar Rapids —Capt. A. M. Loomis,
postmaster at Wyoming, dropped

8tate Cattle Have Tuberculoid.
Des Moines, Dec. 15.—A serious epi
demic of tuberculosis has appeared
among the cattle in the state herd at
the state Institution at Mt. Pleasant
and as a result It has been necessary
for the state veterinary Burgeon, Dr.
Paul Koto, to order nearly forty bead
Dr. Talbot, one of the deputiea,
made the test of the state cattle re»
cently and nearly forty head respond
ed to the test. Dr. Koto at once or
dered that tbey be killed. Chairman
Cownie and the other members of
the state board of control could not
believe that such a situation existed
and Chairman Cownie went to Mt.
Pleasant to be present when the cat
tle were slaughtered and the post
mortem held. Chairman Cownie has
always opposed these tuberculosis
tests, claiming that they did not
amount to much. At the time the last
general test of state cattle was made
he became convinced, after the post
mortems were held, that there was
something to the test.
Nevertheless, ho believes that the
test made by Dr. Talbot at Mt. Pleas
ant is pretty strong and for this
reason he deemed it advisable to be
present when the post-mortems were
held. Dr. Koto said that nearly forty
head had responded to the tests.
At Eldora recently Dr. Koto applied
the tuberculin test to the state herd
and found that four cattle responded
to the test. These four were among
a consignment shipped to the insti
tution from Illinois.

Corn Crop Falls Short.
Dubuque.—Special reports receiv
ed in Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois
show conclusively that the reports of
the corn crop are unwarrantedly op
timistic. Iowa will have little corn
to ship as 25 to 35 per cent is still
in the fields, and most of the balance
fails to grade better than third. The
quantity is small and the quality is
exceedingly poor, according to de

dent Taft and Governor of
Pittsburg, Pa—At the close of a
momentous two-days' conference here
Tuesday, war was formally declared
upon the United States Steel cor

labor throughout the United States
The decision to battle long and hard
against the stand taken by the steel
corporation in Its policy of "open
shop" was reached by the labor con
ferees only after hours of debate and
a deal of trouble.
In a resolution adopted by the na
tional labor leaders, organized labor
throughout the country is called on to
thoroughly and completely organize
all employes in the iron, steel and tin
plate industry, ordering an assess
ment of ten cents per member, rec
ommending appointment of commit

ing before them the "grievances from
which labor suffers at the hands of
the steel corporation."

the remarkable battle decree, Samuel
Gompers, president of the American
Federation of Labor, presided, and
through him the measure was put
upon the record books of the execu
tive council of the federation.
The grievances of organized labor
against the steel corporation, as set
forth in the resolution, have been for
warded to President Taft and the Uni
ted States senate and house of repre
sentatives. The governors of the
states in which the United States
Steel corporation owns plants or has
interests will also receive a copy of

with the low wages paid the men in
the employ of the steel corporation,
the hours of work and the general
condition of oppression under which
the corporation Is alleged to hold Its
Thorough organization of all em
ployes in the iron, steel and tin plate
industry and co-related trades is urged
and a call for organizers to assist in
the work is made.

He pictured the life of a man who
gambled, and speculated, and turned
fortunes in a few hours, jumping from

Capt. Osbon, "I heard Loose say:

Capt. Osbon does not believe that

affidavits, was a part of any plot to
discredit Dr. Cook.
"The idea originated with Loose
and Dunkle," says Capt. Osbon. "They
had for sale matter in this contro

handle it. When they found that out,
they cast about for something else.
