w/
t'
cessary—Appanoose County Made
,0! Part of Keokuk Division of Southern
Iowa Judicial District.
Wasbrington, D. C., April 5.—(Spe
cial).—Congressman Hepburn said last
night that he believed the senate
would pass the house rate bill without
a court review amendment. He
declared that It is constitutional
and that there is no excuse
for opposition to the bill on that
score any longer. He considers the
bill, as it left the house, constitutional,
and thinks that there is nothing to be
gained by a court review amendment.
He thinks that after threshing over the
situation for some time, the senate
will finally pass an unamended bill.
He thinks that some of the amend
ments that are now being offered in
'the senate are not being put forward
in good faith, their chief aim being to
make th6 bill unconstitutional. He has
not this criticism for the court review
amendment recently introduced by
Senator Long.
Allison vs. Aldrich.
Eastern newspapers are making
much of the fact that the rate contest
in the senate has become a struggle
between one force led by Allison, and
another led by Aldrich. The Wash
ington Times last night said:
"Senator Allison is to put his forty
years of experience, his prestige as
dean of the senate, his power as head
of its most potent committee, his skill
as a manager of legislation, his tact
in handling men and situations and
the genuine affection of his associates
for him against the skill and accom
pli8hments of the senator from Rhode
Island, who is conceded to be the anti
administration leader. It is going to
be from this time forth a test of Alli
spn mettle against that of Aldrich."
Change in Judicial District.
In the house yesterday Representa
tive Hepburn called up and got passed
a bill transferring Appanoose county
from the Creston division of southern
Iowa judicial district to the Keokuk di
vision and changing the time of the
spring term of court at Creston, so as
not to conflict with the time at Ked
kuk. It is more convenient for Appa
noose county citizens to attend court
at Keokuk, and hence the change was
decided on. It is expected that the
senate will soon pass the bill.

0PEN8 UP 4,000 ACRE COAL FIELD
Big Vein District In Marlon County
Will Be Worked.
Des Moines, April 6.—Authoritative
announcement has been made of the
Intention of the Rock Island road to
develop this season the coal properties
it has acquired in Marion county,
along English creek, and the work has
actually been entered upon. It" will
be carried on under the direction of
Superintendent Given of the Valley di
vision.
This property comprises about four
thousand acres of coal lands in the
big vein district in the south part of
Marion county and principally along
a small water course known as English
creek. The mineral rights were ac
quired after prospecting several years
ago by the White Breast Fuel com
pany of Illinois, Byron Seevers of Os
kaloosa conducted the prospecting and
made the purchases. The entire field
on this creek has been disposed of to
the Rock Island and it will operate the
mines and use the output largely for
coaling its Iowa lines, though it is
likely that some of the coal will of ne
cessity go Into the competitive mar
ket. The coal as prospected shows
from four to eight feet in thickness
at a depth of from 80 to a little over
100 feet. It will average over five
feet.
To reach the CQal It will be neces
sary to build a considerable extension
of the Knoxville branch of the Wash
ington division, and this work Is now
under way. Two steam shovels, a
number of dump ctrs and & large
force of laborers are employed on the
work and a number of teams Will be
used later on. The extension to be
built this season will extend south and
west from Knoxville about eight miles.
The dpening of tne two shafts will bf
undertaken this season and It is ex
pected to commence coaling a portion
of the Book Island road from them
t.^is fall. The mines are to be equip
ped with electricity and this trolley
system will be used for conveying coal
to the cages through the principal en
tries.

ATTORNEYS PAS8 THE LIE.
E, Tlnley and G. S. Wright Almost
Come to Blows at Council Meeting.
Council Bluffs, April 5.—It looked as
though Attorneys Emmet Tlnley and
George S. Wright would come to
biows in the city council chamber yes
terday during a heated verbal ex
change, but they did not. Tlnley is
one of the city's special attorneys em
ployed at a figure of $7,500, to see
that everything goes right in the
steps taken toward purchasing the
water works, while Wright is attorney
for the water works company. The
colloquy between them was due to
Wright twitting Tlnley on the high
price of his services to the city.
"If it were merely a matter of fees
with me," responded the latter, "I
might say that our firm could have
had a larger fee from the water works
company than from the city had we
been disposed to take it."
That's not true,' Wright promptly
declared.
"You lie," was Tinley's answer.
Spectators looked xor a fist fight, as
the men were only a few feet apart.
The expectations, however, were dis
appointed. Wright's only rejoinder
was: "Well, that makes It an even
oreak."

owners on the route of the Main street
line, asking them to waive their right
to the required seven feet necessary
for the laying of the track is now be

liberally signed. It is also the intention
of the company to extend its East End
line, but if yet nothing definite has
been done Vith reference to this.
The Ward 8treet Improvements.
Work will begin soon on the relay
