Special to TJmes-Republlcan.
Des Moines, Jail. 23.—Sixi.v-H ve
counties of tile state have reported to
the state auditor the amount of (axes
that have been levied in those counties
and the reports show that the amount
Is nearly SO per cent greater than for
the year 1907. The result is that the
deficit In the general fund of tho. state
treasury will be more than met. A
twenty per cent increase means an in
crease of $400,000 In the general fund
for one year. The amount that the
legislature appropriated for the two
year period was only $400,000 more
than the amount available by the es
timate In the general fund and if next
year's taxes amount to as much tho
deficit scare. 'Will amount to nothing.
The increase in the taxes for 190S
was made known today for the first
time when Hevenue Clerk J. F. Wall
of the auditor's olfice compared the
figures with those of last year for the
sixty-live counties that have thus far
reported and figured up the totals. This
shows that there is a total of $1,556,
524 to be paid into the general revenue
fund of the state treasury from thes«
65 counties where during .1907 they
paid only $1,315,211. If the remainder
of lho 99 counties of the state keep
up 'tills"increase"1there 'wdll" be"about the order of the dean of agriculture.
$2,360,000 paid into the state treasury
during 1908 where' there was only
about two million paid in during 1!)07.
The increase is a. little more than 18
per cent.
The last legislature provided that
the executive council should llx the
state levy at such a percentage as
would bring to the general fund $2,
400,000 for 1908 and the same amount
for 1909. The levy was llxed at 3.4
mills. This levy will bring nearly the
amount decided upon. This does not
entirely relieve the embarrassment of
the i?tate treasury. The funds are low
now and will be low. The legislature
has "been drawing on the balances left

would be no scramble for the positions

It is not working out that way in

In the campaign for the adoption of
the plan were men of worth and emin
ence and such as would make excellent
commissioners. When the time came to
suggest candidates these men one by
one refused to serve with possibly one
or two exceptions. Each and everyone
of them had pleaded tihat his business
affairs demand his time and that he
could not leave his business and be
come a commissioner at. a salary of
$3,000, for the law demand that the
commissioner devote all his. time to t'he
work. J. G. Olmsted, a wholesale shoe
dealer, consented to lake a position on
the commission tho It would mean a
sacrifice of at least 15,000 annually to
him, but made the provision that I. M.
Earle jor men of his type serve. Mr.
Earle is a 'prominent lawyer and re

A committee of 300 of the foremost

S.
Ft. Dodge Has Chapter of I. C.
Fraternity of World.
Ft. Dodge, Jan. 23.—A preliminary
meeting of the I. C. ©. students was
held here in A. O. TJ. W. hall for the
purpose of seeing whether or not a
subordinate chapter an I. C. S. Fra
ternity of the World, could uot be
formed in this city. Out of the twen
ty-five there, twenty pledged them
selves to join the new fraternity. The
number present was greatly kept down
by the many conflicting entertain
ments.
The fraternity is organizing subor
dinate chapters all over the English
speaking world. At present there
are forty-eight in eastern states and a
few in the western. The Fort Dodge
students, of whom there are about
175, will probably have the honor of
being the first body to form a chapter
in the Cedar Rapids district, compris
ing part of flv'e 'states.
By the next meeting, to be called
within two weeks, it is expected
that the local chapter will have :"fifty
members. All present at the meeting
and a committee of twentv-five from ias^ night were much enthused and
promised to boost. It is planned to
secure study rooms for the use of the
students in the fraternity and a lodge
room will also be secured.
these was selected to prepare a slate.
The slut'e was prepared and a meeting
of the larger committee now number
ing 530 is called for Friday night
at
which the slate will be reported.
Faville Speaks at Humboldt.
Special to TSmes-itcnubllcan.
Humboldt, Jan. 23.—Hon. F. F. Fa
ville, of Storm Lake. United States
district attorney, delivered here a
very interesting and forceful address
upon "Certain Inalienable Rights."
Among other subjects he treated of the
necessity for abolishing railroad re
bates, for curbing the power of trusts
and monopolies and the suppression of
the liquor traffic. He dwelt strongly
on the need for the rigid and impar
tial enforcement of law.

Only Entire Concrete Bnilil-
injr Constructed
IS LOCATED IN DAVENPORT
Structure Is Built Upon Piers of Con­
crete, Is Five Stories High and Has
Roof of Concrete Fire Proof and
No Insurance Required Method of
Construction.
•special to Times-Republican.
]avenport, Jan. 2:1.—Tho city of
Davenport bears the distinction, and
the Davenport Hag & Paper Company
is in a sense justly proud, of posses
sing tho only entire concrete building,
as far as known, in the entire coun
try, (ieorge \V. Nolit. secretary of the
company which has erected its new
home on Second and Rock Island
streets, of the now material with the
use of the comparatively new rein
forced concrete construction, has ex
pended some effort looking up tho
matter satisfy, if nothing else, his
own curiosity, ami he has been un
able to llnd another building standing
or iiv course of erection toduv which
is constructed entirely of concrete.
Ko that lite .statement that this city
and the Davenport Hag & Paper Com
pany have the only building construct
ed entirely of this new material is as
yet unchallenged. There are other
1 concrete buildings in pavepport, but
the difference existing between them
und the Davenport Bag & Paper Com
pany's building is that brick or stone,
and possibly both, enter into the con
struction. This pertains to the Mulli
gan building mi Fourth and Iowa and
the Johnson building on East Second
street.
It is interesting to review the con
struction of the warehouse now Hear
ing completion at Second ahd Hock
Island streets. Different from build
ings erected in the past, the entire
structure is built upon piers of con
crete, which is reinforced around
twisted steel rods, the piers being
sunk in some instances 15 feet below
the surface so that the weight of the
building is not upon the walls, but
upon the large piers. Even the cross
beams and the ceiling and floor braces
are of reinforced concrete moulded
over steel bars or rods and the floors
are made of tho same material. It Is
of course impossible to build any
thing like this of concrete alone with
out the use of steel, but with its as
sistance and the reinforced concrete,
the structure is practically one- solid
stone building strengthened by tho
steel braces and plates.
The building is composed of live
stories and basement with a roof of
concrete covered with tari It is fire
proof thruout, so that in? insurance
will be required tin the building. The
only wooden construction is .in the
window frames and the shelving In
the interior. The first floor is com
posed of office room in front, with a
reinforced concrete vault adjoining,
and a shipping department in the rear.
The basement is also divided into two
parts, the smaller front room under
the office being for the storage of tar
paper, and the large room lor other
goods.
