Up Against Law
MARRIED IN CENTER OF BRIDGE
Wedding Party Shivers Thru Cere­
mony, Which Was Near the Hour of
Midnight Bride a Former Resident
of Sioux City and Groom a Soldier
W
in Uncie Sam's Army.
Special to Times-Republican.
Council Bluffs, Dec. 31.—The clock
wasn't exactly striking the hour, but
they stood on tho brldo at midnight
and were married.
Tho bridge was the Omaha-Council
Bluffs bridge,' the hour was almost
midnight—tho not quite—and "they"
were Miss Birdie Tldd, Sergeant Ed
ward C. Phillips, of Fort Crook, a min
ister whose name has not leaked out,
and the minimum number of witnesses
demanded by the law for a wedding
ceremony. It was because the license
had been secured in the wrong town,
hence the necessity of crossing the
bridge.
Cupid, the whimsical little mischief
maker, commanded the unusual sortie.
Underneath the Missouri river, black
and silent, heard the .party swear each
other to secrecy as soon as the cere
mony had been performed.
Somewhere there waa a leak and to
day. a fortnight after the esoteric
amalgamation of two pining hearts,
the story became known in Sioux City,
where Sergeant and Mrs. Phillips were
entertained Christmas and Thursday
by relatives and Intimate acquaint
ances, who knew nothing about the'
marriage of the two until they an
nounced It on Christmas day.
Huddled together on the great bridge
with a winter wind screaming sav
agely about their ears from the north,
with silent, unsuspecting craft slipping
past underneath, and two cities lying
silently on either side—that was the
setting for the ceremony. The minis
ter read the service In solemn voice.
The witnesses shivered. The bride
and groom-to-be clutched each other's
hands to keep warm.
It was late when the little -party
called at the minister's house to* ask
him to tie the matrimonial knot. He
examined the licehse.
"Bless you my children," he said,
"you got this over at Council Bluffs.
This Is Omaha. Nothing doing,' as
the rabble is pleased to phrase it."
Consternation seized the little party.
"Hush!" commanded ,the sergeant, "I
bought the license over in the com
monwealth of Iowa to keep the news
away from by brother troopers. Some
thing must be done."
"Yes," agreed ttyp preacher!
"I have it," suggested a witness. "Us
for the other side of the bridge. Cinch.
Just to the center and a little further."
"Bully," agreed the sergeant. "Le
ander swam the Hellespont, and we
will cross this here."
They crossed, the knot was tied, the
promise of secrecy was made, and the
party quit huddling together in the raw
night wind and disbanded.

the rack. It being quite dark, one
of the front wheels went into a chuck

Educational Council of State
Teachers to iMake .Important
Recommendations
BETTER WORK IS DEMANDED
Aotior_to Secure It to Be Recommend­
ed by Professor Ensign, Head of
Council State Aid for Competent
Inspection to Be Suggested Iowa
Behind Other States.
Special to Times-Republican.
Iowa City, Dec. 31.—When the State
Teachers' Association assembles in
Des Moines Wednesday, Prof. F. C.
Ensign of the state university school
of education and state inspector of
high schools, will submit his report as
chairman of tho committee of the edu
cational council who have been giving
the high schools careful study and will
recommend a bill for a law granting
aid to Iowa high schools on condition
that the local boards meet certain re
quirements in properly qualified
teachers, reasonable libraries, labora
tories, etc.
The committee In its investigations
finds that Iowa is far behind many of'
our states In its high school educa
tion. There are 182 towns In the state
having a population of 1,01)0 or more
and of these 150 have fairly efficient
high schools built up quite independ
ent of any state system, When it is re
membered that of 707,845 youth of
school age, 27,000 more than half llV'i
in these small towns and in the coun
try, it is easily, seen that our high
schools do not reach the masses.
Other states have solved the hlgfti
school problems by granting cash
bonuses to schools willing to accept,
along with it, a reasonable supervis
ion by a competent state high school
board. Among the states that have de
veloped excellent secondary systems
in this way the committee noted Min
nesota, Wisconsin, California, Nebras
ka, and North Dakota, tho many oth
er states are also aiding their high
schools In other ways.
SUICIDE WAS FORMER IOWAN.
Dr. Wachendorf Was Once Assistant

Sioux City, Dec. 31.—Dr. Carl C. J.
Wachendorf, who committed suicide
Saturday in Sioux Falls, following l%is

charged with fraudulent use of the
mails and attempted blackmail—was a
former practicing physician In Sioux

In 1892 and 1893 he was assistant at
Drake sanitarium, the defunct Morn
lngside institution. His offices were
In the old Evans block, now the Ste
vens block, corner of Fourth and Iowa
streets.
.The dead criminal was a well known
figure in this city at the time. He was
considered a man of mystery, having
no intimate friends, and keeping his
own counsel all the time. Accompanied
by a great Dane mastiff, he was the
target of many eyes during his eight
months' residence here. The man and
his big dog were Inseparable.
WANT BETTER TRAIN SERVICE
Traveling Men to Petition for Anoth

Mason Cify, Dec. 81.—The committee
representing the traveling men of this
section of Iowa and of the city said
this morning that the petition pro
posed by some of the members some
weeks ago will make its formal ap
pearance about the first of January.
The petition will ask that the Milwau
kee re-arrange Its time card to the
end that trains will run more to suit
the convenience of the traveling men
and the public or that an extra train
be put on. It is said this morning that
probably the petition would not be sent
the company officials for fear of the
ever waiting pigeon hole, but would
probably be sent Immediately to the
railroad commissioners. It Is said that
the commissioners are anxious to act
and it is thought by the committee
some favorable action may be taken.
