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

about $10,000. Tbe building is two stories
high, the second floor being partitioned into

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

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.
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
"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.

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
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.

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

of the character and qualifications of mem
bers rather than trusting to Influence.
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.
Killing- Off of Rabbits and the Work
of Hunters Assigned as
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.
