CONTRACTORS FIND IT HARD TO GET MEN Old Frimn Which Ha-a Olsnaared Principal Streets Being Torn Down nnd Replaced with Sab stantlal Brlcka. Council Bluffs Is enjoying a building boom almost unprecedented In the history of the city. In addition to the large num ber of handsome private residences In course of construction In all parts of the city many substantial brick business build ings are being erected. In many cases these brick buildings take the place of old and unsightly frame structures whose Jterlod of usefulness had passed. This summer has been an exceptional one in the building line, and the demand for carpenters, bricklayers, masons and In fact all classes of artisans has been ex traordinary. So great has been the de mand that contractors have In many In stances found considerable difficulty In se curing men. Thai demand for building ma terial of all kinds has at times exceeded the supply, and the construction on sev eral large buildings has for this reason been more or less delayed. The demand for steel and Iron work In Council Bluffs this summer has been unusually heavy and 'contractors have experienced much diffi culty Iri getting their orders filled. The same applies to cement, a vast quantity of which has been used In this city dur ing the last several months, and the sup ply at times was wholly inadequate to meet the demand. One of the largest buildings now ap ' proaehlng completion Is the new Mercy hospital being erected by the sisters in charga of St. Bernard's hospital. This building when completed will represent an outlay of $75,000, Independent of the cost of furnishing and fitting It up. When finished the new hospital will be as com plete as any similar Institution west of Chicago. Another notable building which Is nearing completion Is the big three story warehouse being erected by the Oroneweg- & Schoentgen compsny for Its wholesale grocery business. This building, located at the corner of Ninth street and facing Broadway, Covers more than half a block, with railroad trackage in the rear. The cost ot the building when completed Will exceed $60,000. P. J, Duerr baa commenced the erection of a brick building on his property on Broadway, between Seventh and Eighth atreet. which will be two stories in height. The main building will be occupied by a laundry company, while the upstairs will be arrsnged in flats, for which there la a good demand In this city. The building will cost In the neighborhood of. 115.000. Many of the old frame Structures on Broad way, which hsve done"slnce Council Bluffs was a f frontier town, are rapidly disap pearing to make way for aubstantial brick buildings of modern design. This la espe cially true of the many old frame buildings whirh,havg beaiwtupled.as aaloons, and which are nqw blng replaced by the differ ent brewing companies with ornate brick buildings. The Krug Brewing company has Just completed such a building at Eleventh treet and Broadway, while the Omaha Jlrewing company, which purchased the old Ttonpareil property at the corner ot Scott "treet. and Broadway, has torn down the old derelict and Is building In Its place handsonle three:story block of ornate de sign, which will 'greatly Improve the ap pearance of this, one of the principal cor ners la the city.- The same company la CI so building a substantial brick structure t the corner of Ninth avenue and South Main atreet, taking the place of an old frame structure The Waterloo Creamery company baa just completed a large brick building for its business on South Eighth street, near Broadway, which Involved an outlay of about $10,000. Tbe building is two stories high, the second floor being partitioned into flat of modern design. The CUisens' Oaa and Electric company has Just let the contract for a new gaa house and other Improvements to Its plant, which will entail an expenditure of between $15,000 and $20, 000., Greenshlelds A Everest are erecting a handsome double brick flat at the corner of Oakland and Washington avenues, rep resenting an expenditure of about $7,000. The Scandinavian Lutheran church Is mak. Ing Improvements on Its property at Ninth atreet and Avenue A, which will cost about $$,000. ' R. A. Filter has juat completed a store building on Broadway, near the Northwestern depot, which cost $3,000, and Chris SLraub has replaced an old frame hack on bis property on South Main atreet with a brick store building, costing $3,500, Of the residences which are to be seen In course of construction la every part the most pretentloua Is that being built for J. F. Wilcox, the well known florist, on bis Dronerty on East. Pierce street. When com pleted this fine residence will have cost Upward ot $20,000, Dr. H. B. Jennings Is building a $7,500 residence on the lots re cently purchased by him In Turley's Gleo, at the head ot Willow avenue. Victor E. Bender Is building a $4,500 residence on Fifth avenue and Third, while residences costing from $2,500 to $4,000 are being reeled by Mrs. Cornelius on Fifth avenue and 'Seventh street, Mrs. M. A. Haynes In the same vicinity, Andrew Peterson on Glen avenue, Mrs. J. W. Kelly on Avenue A and Twenty-first street, Mrs. Eva Gibson en Fifth avenue near 6lxth street, Mrs. M. J. Tllton on Fifth avenue, H. P. Butler on Glea avenue, U A. Casper on Ninth venue, T. J. Bhugart on Glea avenue. This Is but a partial list of the fine resi dences In course of erection. The lumber men have been compelled to increase their facilities and have done con siderable building this summer. C. Hafer las erected a big- lumber shed on the Illi nois Central tracks near Avenue B and Twelfth street and has built commodious table at the rear ot his warehouse on Broadway. George Hoagland Is building large sheds and an office on, Main street whll ths Qulnn Lumber company has also constructed big lumber sheds and other fculldlngs at Vine and Second atreets.

DENOUNCES CARNIVAL SHOWS Bishop GsrrKss of Slona City Alleea that They Am Hlhly Immoral. SIOUX CITY. Sept. 21. (Special Tele gram.) A sensational utterance In regard to the Elks' carnival, which opens here to morrow, was made In Ephiphany cathedral this morning by Rev. Bishop P. J. Garrlgan. the newly installed bishop of Sioux City. The bishop declsred the carnival shows nresented under the name of the Jabour -. .r unfit for aood Catholics to attend. He spoke bitterly against their alleged immoral character and adjured his people to remain away. He cited the ac tion of the Elks at 8slt Lake, where carni vals were tabooed, as proof of the correct ness of his statements.

SPENCE IS WELL PLEASED XaiulU of Political Ooifsreioei Enoonrafiiig to Bspnblioais. Ire DEMOCRATS SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE Mother of Boy Who Wti So Cruelly Beaten Returns and Bays She Has Been In a Hospital la Omaha. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES, Sept. 21. (Special.) Chairman Bpence of the republican state central committee has Just returned from his touring of the state holding district conferences with the candidates for con gress in each district and the county chair men and party workers In each section of the state. Mr. Spence stated this morning that the conferences held the past week were the most successful of any. They were held in Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Creston, Ottumwa and Cedar Rapids. At some of these conferences every county In the district wss represented, while a num ber of counties have not yet organized for the camaplgn. The chairman haa thus had an opportunity to meet the local workers and the men on whom he must rely for the political work of the campaign and personally to explain to them the plans for the campaign and what Is wanted of each one. At these conferences Chairman Spence has been accompanied by A. F. Dawson, private seer nary iu otuiui llson, who Is In charge of the speakers for the republican committee and the plans for the speaking campaign have been for mulated. The Waterloo rally baa been called off. It was to be on the 27th. Thus far the only outsiders who are certainly to be In the Iowa campaign are Congressman Landls of Indiana, Congressman Esch of Wisconsin, Governor Van Sant of Minne sota, Colonel Frank O. Lowden of Illinois, Senator Clapp of Minnesota, Senator Mason of Illinois, Senator Foraker of Ohio and Congressman Hopkins of Illinois. The de termination of Speaker Henderson to re tire from public life at this time. Just as the national congressional committee was arranging to have him enter a number of other states on an extensive speaking tour for which he was to be provided with a special car, has somewhat disarranged the plans for the speaking campaign, as there was to be more or less of an exchange of speakers between the states. However, Colonel Hepburn, Senator Dolllver and Con gressman Cousins will speak In other states, also Governor Cummins and some other Iowa orators. Democratic Plans. The democratic state committee bas se cured rooms and opens headquarters some time next week and engage In a general campaign. The congressional committee In the Third district will have a district conference at Waterloo on Monday to arrange for the campaign there. The con gressional committee will have a conference In Dea Moines In a few days to arrange for the campaign In this district. Parley Shel don, mayor of Ames, and formerly postmas ter, and a prominent banker of Story county, haa formally accepted the nomination and will make the race. In the Fourth dis trict arrangements are being made for a joint debate between Congressman Hau gen and Colonel A. L. Sorter, the republican and democratic nominees- for congress. In this district an effort Is being made to secure a series of debates between Walt Butler and Lafe Young In the district. Tbe only district In the state where the dem ocrats have as yet secured no candidate for congres is In the Eleventh, where T. M. Zlnk was nominated, but has since de clined. The committee will All the va cancy on tbe ticket very soon. Mother of Injured Child Returns. About midnight last night the police force was surprised at the appearance at police headquarters of Mrs. I. N. Thomp son, mother of the child that was so ter ribly abused and for which abuse Mrs. Harry Lloyd has been held to the grand Jury. Mrs. Thompson had been missing for some time. It was supposed she was In Des Moines, but she tould not be lo cated. She had left the 8-year-old boy In possession of her step-sister, Mrs. Lloyd, and had gone away. She stated thla morning that she had been In Omaha since August IS and was there for tbe purpose of having an operation performed and re ceiving medical treatment. Mrs. Thomp son Is the daughter of a former well known Methodist minister and has been well reared. She did not know of the abuse to which her child had been subjected un til a few days ago. She says she will ap ply for a divorce from her husband on the ground of non-support. Horse Show Lost Some Money. The Des Moines horse show, which was held all last week In the pavilion at the state fair grounds, awarded over $4,000 In cash premiums, but the managers de clare that tbe receipts were not sufficient to pay all expenses. In fact the show was very expensive one In many ways, and while on one or two evenings the pavilion wss filled full, yet on the other evenings the attendance wss not so large. The finest lot of horses ever seen In the state was shown, and the social features of ths show were successful In every way. Clark Will Sarrlve. Harry Clark, the boy who was shot by Mrs. Maud Smith, Is at tbe Methodist hos pital, but will probably recover, as be was reported doing well today. He Is a crip ple and suffers from St. Vitus' dance, and this may render his recovery slow. He still denies that he was responsible for any wrong to the daughter of Mrs. Smith, and his relatives and friends Insist he was cot going wrong. On the other hand It Is shown thst the girl who made the accu sation against him does not bear a very good reputation. It is probable that neither the woman nor her victim will be prosecuted. REV. HENNESS QUITS CHURCH Assigns Constant "Hagglag" as Hli Reason for Uirlns His Wife. KEOKUK. Ia.. 6eV 21. The case of Rev. P. J. Henness, before tbe Iowa conference of ths Methodist Eplscopsl church, camo very dramatically to an end as abruptly sa It came up. After the trial committee. appointed by Bishop Hamilton and com posed of thirteen prominent divines, had been In session far Into ths night, Mr Henness himself took ths stand. He aald It was evident to himself and to his attorneys that he was not to have fair treatment, and then he handed the parchments of his ordination In 16S7 to ths committee, following with his resignation from membership In the church ss well as from the ministry. Turning to his wife, who was present, the self-unfrocked min ister exclaimed: "Womsn, behold ths wreck of a man you bsve made." Hla wife broke down at this dramatic exhibition. Tbe committee for the trial of Mr. Henness Immediately closed Its scs loo, having lost Its Jurisdiction of ths esse by his action In placing himself out side the pale of the church. Mr. Hcnness, after mantalnlng silence stubbornly for a year, said that the reason he left his wife was for contlnusl "nagging." which broke down his health and rendered tt Impossible for him to do ministerial work. The charge against him before the conference was simply his sep. aration from his wife, whom he arreed to support, but refused to live with. No question of Immorality was Involved, the claims of the prosecution being that Mr. Henness' conduct was unclerlcal, and that a minister so separated should not be sent out ss pastor over a church by the bishop. Mr. Henness will go to North Dakota to engage In the mining business. His friends say that a movement will start from his case to have the general quadrennial con ference of the Methodist chuch take ac tion against one of the oldest and most prominent bishops, who also was sep arated from hla wife under similar conditions. HENDERSON SERVES OUT TERM Emphatically Denies Any Intention ot ReslKnlnsj from Present Congress. ,t CHICAGO, Sept. 21. David B. Hender son, speaker of the national house of rep resentatives, passed through Chicago to night enroute for Atlantic City. Before leaving for the east Speaker Hen derson restated bis determination to retire from tbe house, denied any Intention of "abdicating" hie present position until his term of office shall have expired and de clared himself In perfect accord with the tariff views of President Roosevelt, as enunciated in his Cincinnati speech. "I have spent twenty years of my life fighting for protection for American in dustries and American labor and I shall not be a party to any Juggling at this late day," the speaker said. "President Roosevelt's tariff views, set forth In his Cincinnati speech, coincide with my own. There is no difference In our belief. His speech was a strong ono and it has my hearty endorsement." "Then the differences are confined to your own state T" waa iBkcd. "Yes, largely. Let the new lights shine." The speaker smiled broadly as be used this phrase. "Is tt.ere any chance of your friends prevailing on you to reconsider your ac tion?" "Absolutely none. I cannot see my way clear to gratify their wishes. It pains me to remain firm against them, but It is a mat ter of principle. The pressure brought to bear on me is strong. Senator Allison and a host of my friends came to the station this afternoon to make a final assault on me. I had to say 'No." "Will you resign from congress and give up tho speakership before the end of your term?" "I shall not," . was the prompt reply. "My declination of a nomination and a res ignation from congress Is another thing. I shall serve out my term In congress and I shall continue to fill the office of speaker. I have had no other Intention." The suggestion was advanced that "Ideas" and "pollo.W in Mr. Henderson's home state might change after a brief period. "Let the new lights shine," again came the answer. When told that Secretary Shaw and Congressman Babcock wore understood to be awaiting his arrival at Chicago with a view of adding their entreaties to dis suade him from his course, Mr. Henderson said: "I am on my wy to Atlantic City and will arrive there tomorrow night." When It was sugg.sted that certain lead ers had intimated i tt ho was not loyal to hla party by reslgifig, a shadow of regret passed over his fa'n) and be quickly said: "The retirement of Je man or of men from office cannot effect the future of the party." Atlantic to Have a Carnival. ATLANTIC, la., Sept. 21. (Special.) Final arrangements - were made yesterday by the citizens of Atlantic to hold a car nival this fall. President Ed Egan and Secretary H. C. Billett of the association have the plans In charge and a good car nival is assured. HENDERSON IN THE HOUSE (Continued from Flfst Page.) of the committee on the bill and considers It In connection with the bill Itself, and the statements of the member Interested. It often happens, however, that he Is not sat isfied entirely with the evidence In hand and the bill Is then referred to some disin terested members. For the latter purpose the speaker has at hand tbe members of. the committee on rules and tbe chairmen of the committees of the house, of whom there sre some thirty-five, to whom he often Jocu larly refers aa bis cabinet. It Is his de sire to obtain as unprejudiced a report on the bill aa possible, so that he usually makes It a point to refer the bill to some member not connected with tbe committee making the report. Some times It is nec essary to call on the departments for In formation regarding the bill. When all the Information Is at hand the speaker gives his decision, and In accordance with this decision the member is recognized or not. I made up my mind," said the speaker to the writer last session, "that as long as I was burdened with the responsibility of according recognition to the members, un der tbe rules, I tfould not permit any bill to come up before the house until after I had personally Investigated its merits and was satisfied that it waa a good bill. Of conrse a number of measures which are called up fall to pass, but that is a ques tion for the house to decide." Why Cnshmaa Kicked. Under this system some meritorious meas ures doubtless fall to get into the houi but as the speaker is a very reasonable man and always approachable to members. It is likely that a still larger number of ua- worthy measares are killed by its opera tlon. It was such an lnstsncs that called forth the, bitter denunciation on tbe floor of the house during the discussion ot the Cuban reciprocity bill by Representative Cushman of Washington of the speaker, the committee on rules and the methods of the house. Mr. Cushman had a bill to establish a mint at Tscoma, Wash., carrying an appropriation of $500,000 for that purpose. w hen be sought recognition for It from the Breaker the latter was Informed by the Treasury department that the mint was entirely unnecessary, that the department did not wan.t It and that tt was altogether undesirable to establish It. Looking at the subject from the standpoint of tbe interests of the country at large, rather than from that of Mr. Cushman and his constituents who were Interested In the establishment of the mint at Tacoma, the speaker de clined to recognize Mr. Cushman for the purpose of calling up this bill and tbe 1st ter revenged himself by delivering a tirade against tbe speaker and the committee on rules, who were proceeding under their legitimate powers conferred upon them by the house Itself. Yet Mr. Cushman had received four or five recognitions during the last congress, which was considerably above the average, especially for new mem bers. Henderson a Hard Worker. Of course this care which the speaker ex erclssd In regard to matters to come be lore tne house entails upon him a vast quantity ot work and it Is fair to ssy be is enabled to transact his business only by virtuo of having inherited a most rug fed Scotch, constitution. T&a speaker la aa early riser and at t o'clock Is always seated t his desk In his apartments at the Nor- msndle hotel. He Is a rapM worker and Ike most rspld workers divides his work time absolutely from thst devoted to recre- tlon. Consequently his office in the hotel s some dlMsncc from his suite of living rooms, although nesr enough to be con venient When he steps into his office In tbe morning he finds there his secretary, ullsn W. Richards, his clerk, L. J. Mc- Neely, and his stenographer. Mr. Rich- rds calls up matter in connection with the house, to which he has been assigned, Mr. McNeely presents the speaker's lot- era and private correspondence. Us sten- ogrspher, Johnson, takes whatever dicta tion the speaker desires to give and by 10:30 all of the speaker's private business a cleaned up and out of the way. At 11 clock he is down at hla office In the cap- ltol, where the same force surrounds him, with the addition of A. G. Hinds, clerk at the speaker's table, and admitted to be the most competent authority on matters of parliamentary law and procedure known to the house. From 11 to 12 the speaker's office Is open to members of the house In- Iscrimlnately, who lay before blra such matters as they may see fit. In addition to his office at the Normandle and at the capltol, the speaker has another office, which might be termed a sort of retreat. It Is downstairs underueath his office on the floor of the house. It Is here that he takes his lunch and where he receives only such visitors as he himself designates. This is the only place where the speaker has absolute privacy. Here It Is that he holds his conferences, usually with such men as Representatives Dalzell and Groa venor of the committee on rules. Represent ative Payne, chairman of the committee on ways and means; Representative Cannon, hatrman of the committee on appropria tions, and others, including senators, cab inet officers and others who seek him pri vately on matters of legislation. Social Side of Ills Life. Aa stated. It Is the custom of Speaker Henderson to divide his private life from bis public business absolutely, and when he reaches the hotel after the day's ses- lon his work is practically over for the day. This does not mean that there are not many affairs of public character dis cussed over little dinners or suppers dur ing social entertainments of various kinds, but as far as the direct business of the house Is concerned It Is set aside when the gavel falls. From 5 o'clock on during the evening the cpeaker Is not tbe speaker, but the genial David B. Henderson, mem ber of congress from Iowa, fond of a good story, ready to laugh at a good Joke, who sings a good song and is not averse to other social recreations. No speaker since the days of James O. Blaine has been so fond of social diversions as Speaker Hen derson, who rarely spends an evening alone. His social life Is divided between the immediate circle of bis own personal friends and the general official and so cial world, with which be Is thrown In contact largely through bis position. In official society the epeaker Is most cordial, but stands considerably on tbe dignity of his position. On this subject Mr. Henderson has been more frank than his predecessors. He believes that as speaker cf tho greatest popular legisla tive body in the world his position Is sec ond only to that of the president, and be lieves that be should maintain the dig nity of the office accordingly. It is not so much the man as the position to which he Insists that proper respect should be paid. In private life, however, the speaker throws aside all reserve and enters Into the spirit and humor of those around him with as much test as though he were an ordinary member of congress. In his Im mediate circle the speaker knows no dif ference ot position and never takes into consideration the official character ' ot those who surround him. On such occa sions, when the speaker is really seen at his best from a social view, his title Is very seldom mentioned, and It la "General" or "Mr. Henderson," and to his old friends Dave," Just as he addresses them as Uncle Joe" (Cannon), "Uncle Pete" (Hep burn), "Jim" (Sherman) and so on through the list. Domestic In His Tastes. The speaker Is especially devoted to bis Scotch song, bis liking for this being in herited from his Scotch ancestry, and be ing the possessor of a good voice, an ear for music and a retentive memory, he often leads the chorus and always partici pates In it when the opportunity affords. He is devoted to his family, and tt was a source of great discomfort to him that Mrs. Henderson was obliged to be absent from Washington during the greater part of the last session in attendance on ber aged parents In California and his daughter should be abroad completing her muBlcal education. While , not a man of large means, the speaker has a private Income In addition to bis salary, and although unable to maintain a luxurious establish ment In Washington, he is very fond of entertaining and gives frequent dinners at tbe Metropolitan club and elsewhere. The speaker is of a most genial disposition, and those of his friends who have fa vors to ask seldom And their requests de nied unless they conflict with bis concep tion of his duty to the public and the house, and on this point the speaker is Immovable. A striking Illustration ot this is the fact that in making up his list of committees for this session the speaker first gave an opportunity for every mem ber to be beard who wished to present his desires as to commutes places and then be practically withdrew from all contact with members of the bouse, and even the chairmen of the committees themselves had very little to say In regard to the per sonnel of their committees. The speaker preferred to place men on committees where he thought tbey would fit, forming his opinion upon his personal knowledge King of all Bottled Beers." Order from II.

Palls Xot Totrnt with Him. It Is remarkable how little recognition Is accorded by the speaker to what Is usu ally termed Influence. Official and social relations have been strained to the utmost on certain occasions to secure his sup port or opposition to measures before the house, but the most that can be said Is that the persons Interested secured an au dience and their representations were care fully considered. Having had no political ambition further than to occupy his pres ent position, the speaker has not dabbled in politics, and because ot his social In dependence he has been free from most ot the Influences to which a weaker snd less Independent man might have been sub jected. Above all the epeaker poirrics tact, and this quality he has Infused into the immediate circle that surrounds him In the house, with the result that no longer do the so-called leaders undertake to ride roughohod over their following. Nor is tho control of the house vested In a close corporation, for the speaker and the more Influential of his lieutenants are constantly on the lookout for new mate rial, and members who demonstrate their ability as legislators, parliamentarians or debaters are sure to have their talents recognized and their positions correspond ingly advanced. However bitterly the speaker may have been denounced for his so-called tyranny, i' may be safely said that he has held his commanding position by the will of the members of his party and by reason of his own sagacity, carefulness, conservatism and In the recognition of these qualities by the bouse. WOLVES ARELESS PLENTIFUL Killing- Off of Rabbits and the Work of Hunters Assigned as Canae. CHEYENNE. Wyo., Sept. 21 (Special.) At tbe last session of the state legislature, held in January, 1901, the appropriation of $40,000 was authorized as a fund for bounty on predatory wild animals during the en suing two years from April 1, 1901. To date the sum of $24,063 has been paid out, leaving a balance of $15,937 for the remain ing seven months, or until tbe expiration of the two years to be covered by the appro priation. This indicates that wolves and coyotes are either decreasing In numbers, or else ranchmen are not hunting them with the same vigor as heretofore. Ranch men report that the prairie pests are mi grating to the ranges of Montana and the British possessions, and advance as their reason for thinking so that the almost com plete extermination of rabbits and other small animals In the state has made It nec essary for wolves to seek greener pastures. Then, too, the campaign waged against the pests by ranchmen and professional hunt ers, who usually hunt out the dens of cubs and destroy the pups, has had much to do with the depleted numbers of wolves and coyotes on the plains.
