"I am heartily In favor of encouraging the paving campaign that appears to have opened up with the advent ot the first spring month , " said J. W. Lalng , an owner of con siderable property on Sixth street , yester day. "Every da > that the unsightly wooden blocks are permitted to remain on the streets on Injury Is done to the city that will take many days to remove. I am very anxious to BBO Sixth atreet paved this spring and I will do all I can to assist In the work and will agree to pay my paving certificates whenever the work Is done. The lower part of the street Is already paved with brick and Ihero In only a breuk of a few blocks where the old wooden pavement still ex Ists. I care not what material Is used so that It bo of a permanent character. Per sonally I am in favor of the asphalt on account of Its sanitary character. If brick Is used I think there should be some radical changes In the specifications. There has not > ct been a block of brick paving In the city properly laid. The only foundation uscO Is sand , whereas It should bo concrete. A few Inches of broken stone Incorporated with liquid cement will add but little to the cost but It mak ( a base that will last forever and alwa > s gives a smooth and uniform surface - face for * the brick. It Is better for us to pay a little moro at the stnrt and get bet ter work. On Sixth street there are no more than one or two property owners who are not amply able to pay the coat of a first class Job of paving and there will be no opposition If the council orders the strec ru-paved at the next meeting. Two-thirds of the certificates will bo paid In cash whci the work Is completed. " Interest In paving Is beginning to be awak ened In other parts of the city and as the work can now bo done without Increasing th city's bonded Indebtedness , there Is a strong disposition In the council to grant all re quests for paving that may be made. / concerted movement Is being made on Uppe Washington avenue and Ilcnton btreet ti have' those thoroughfares raved and the rcsl dents rescued from the avalanchea of mui and tloud" of dust with which they hav been contending fop years.

The executive committee of the Council Bluffs Transmlsslsslppl association held a meeting last night that kept the members talking until nearly midnight. The mattere that called forth the chief discussion re lated to the affairs of the committee and the largo undertakings In hand. It was an ear nest , practical discussion of some problems that have been up for solution for some time , and which the association felt must be solved at once. The discussion resulted In a satis factory adjustment and the association pro ceeded to the consideration of the other bus lines , chiefly that connected with the erec tion of the big wigwam. President Graham and George F. Knight reported that they had closed the contract for the site of the buildIng - Ing on the exposition ground and obligated the association to pay the first Installment ot the rental , $250 , at once. It was found that the slto originally selected had been leased to a Chinese Midway attraction for $3,000 , but the exposition management agreed to cancel the contract with the orientals and give the chosen slto to the Council Blurts association. The amount , ot the first Install ment was ordered paid at once. Mr. Wright reported that he had received a telegram from Representative Potter In DCS Molnes announcing that the Pottawat- tamle delegation had been before the legis lative appropriation committee In regard to the appropriation to bo made for the Iowa exhibit and had been well received. The telegram suggested that It would bo well for the association to send a special committee of Ita members to DCS Molnes and assist In convincing the legislative committee that a liberal approptlatlon was a necessity. The suggestion was favorably acted upon and tht members of the association's appropriation committee were ordered to go to DCS Moinw at once and co-operato with the county's delegation and other friends of the exposi tion Whllo the subject was up Major Car son spoke very earnestly In favor of a large Iowa exhibit and a suitable building tc show It. Ho declared that Iowa should exceec Ne'braska In the liberality of Its treatmenl of the exposition , and that no cry ot povertj should be permitted to Interfere with UK showing the state should make. Reverting to the question of the wigwam , Mr. Moon suggested that all ot the agents of casterr manufacturers and wholesalers bo ackcd t < solicit their houses to make special exhibit ! In the wigwam. He thought that severa thousand dollars could be raised by thii means that would help to make the vvlgwan the success that the people desired It shouli be. be.Tho The fnanclal import showed that there war In sight about $8 500 for use In building thi wigwam and making the exhibits. The tola expense * that had been figured out amomtci to about $7,000. A resolution was passed making the pres Idcnt of the association the executive heai of the wigwam committee and obliging bin to spend part of each day In the office o the se-cretary for the purpose of advising and directing the work. The plan was ills it cweed ot building the wigwam under thi Immediate direction of the association , em ploying a suitable superintendent and th Or-soelatlon buying all the material. Th same resolution required the secretary fo the next three months to devote all of hi tlmo to the work of the assoclatlen and pro vlded that his compensation should be $10 a month. This portion of the resolution w i laid on the table , with Ike underetandln that the tvcretary would bo paid after hi work was done , but that no money collecte for the purpose of erecting the bulldln should bo used lu the pajmeat of any * al arles. Tlio committee appointed to confer with th representatives of the women's clubs reporte that the women were anxious to a&s'st ' I the work , and bad plaraed a series of en tertalmnents by which It was expected t rac ! > o $1,000.

BOARD ] I OF CBjftROL BILL Friends J of the Measure Oomo Off with i i AHEAD IN THE PREJLlMlNAHY CONTEST Fierce Attnek IM Mpilf on the Hill by It * 12ntMiile nml ) Debnte In the Semite' ' HecomeH Heated. DES MOINBS , March 3. ( Special Tele- gram. ) The Board of Control Bill comes oft with flying colors at the end of the first day's consideration In the senate. The fore noon session was practically devoted to the bill and It overcame all opposition. Feeling ran high and even after the session It was evident that this waa to too the fight of the session and that there would be much bit terness. The friends ot the bill preserved their equanamlty best , for thej- were In the commanding position ot controlling an al most certain majority on all Important mat ters. ters.The The fight opened almost with the first line ot the bill. Ranck of Johnson , democrat , offered an amendment to change the number of members of the board from three to five. The bill's provisions were supported by Funk , Healy , Junkln and Carney , while Ranck , Titus and Blanchard favored the amendment. After a long discussion Ranck endeavored to get a postponement of the vote till tomorrow , but the friends of the measure Insisted on an Immediate vote , which defeated the amendment. It had been expected this would be a fair test vote , but the bill developed much more strength than had been anticipated and the test was not a fair one. Imtnedlatelj after another amend ment waa offered which will , when It Is voted on tomorrow , afford a much better testTho The iblll provides that when the governor submits to the senate nominations for places on the board , they shall be referred to a special committee of the chairmen of appro priations , ways and means , Judiciary , char itable Institutions and penitentiaries am pardons , for consideration and teport. Blan < chard moved to strike out this provision Ho sold It was a reflection on the honcstj and capacity of the senate to confirm noml nations and noted sarcastically the degree of modesty which must have animated Chair man Futik , of the wajs and means commit tee , to write such a provision Into the bill Funk , ho said , Is already president pro tern of the senate , chairman of wajs and means chairman of the statutory committee on re trenchment and reform the only statutory committee of the legislature and no.v propose1 to make himself chairman of this committee He was followed by Trewcn , who bitterly accused the waja and means committee of being a close corporation to engineer this measure through without allowing fair con sideration or opportunity to amend. Ranck spoke In the same line , and sparks Hew when Funk being accused by Ranck of undue - duo anxiety to protect , the bill against changes , replied that the friends of the nicjs- uro were feeling remarkably well and If the other side would keep as cool there would bo no trouble , and the measure would lie passed with much less friction nnd delay. Adjournment came when the opposing sides wcro firing hot shot and- the measure went over till tomorrow for a vote on the amend ment. FORCES LINING UP. During the afternoon bpth sides were bus- 11 } engaged In lining up their forces for the coming test. It was soori found that on this amendment the friends' of the bill would have considerable dcfccflon of support and that the vote was likely to be close. The point Is considered a material one and the greatest effort will be rflade to prevent the proposed change. The Indications are that about eighteen voted will be1 cast In favor of amendment and It will be opposed by twenty-eight or thirty. In the housa the Ray bill for state uni formity and publication , of textbooks v/os under consideration and was the subject of heated debate. Ou roll call It was iWoatod 32 to 53. The Potter liquor manufacturing bill was rcportol favorably late this afternoon by the IIOUPO committee on domestic manufac tures. It Is a liberal measure and Po'ter revs with the thlrtj-cljrht democrats ol ! hi line It Is certain to peas the house. It wus presented over a week ago and not even called for by the chairman of the committee to which It hai been referred till yestcrdaj. Potter , learning that It had not been called for by the committee , threatened to Intro duce a resolution setting forth the coursi- of the committee and demand that the bl'l bo brought before the house. This Induced the committee to take quick action. Five members of the committee voted to report favorably and two opposed such A report. An effort will be made at once to have the bill niado a special order. IIULINO IN GATES' CASK. An Important ruling was made to lay In the $100,000 libel suit of the American Hook company against President George A. CJaus of Iowa college , Grlnnell. The suit was ta recover exemplary damages for the publica tion of a pamphlet entitled "A Fee ol American Schools , " In which President Gates attacked the book companv on the ground that It was u truet , and that it bribed and corrupted school boanln and olllcers tad legislators The defendants moved before Judge Shlras to strike out the petition and require that specific damages be alleged on the ground that exemplary damages cannot be collected by a corporation for libel. This \vai sustained by Shlras. Then the company filed on amended petition alleging specific damages. It set up the entire pamphlet and filed a new petition of fifteen count ? . The first fourteen counts eet fo"-th specific quo tations ) from the publication , charging brlh. cry In specific cites , showing that the com pany Is a trust ami citing1 particular acts 01 agents of the defendant In support of thesi cliarges.
