Mall carriers complain that half of the bouses In Council Bluffs lack the atreet numbers which should distinguish them. and that for thla reason their work of de- Ilverlng mall is increased and hindered Postmaster Haielton. it Is said, will call th attention of the city council at Its meeting tonight to this matter and ask that the ordluancs governing It be en forced. Ths ordinance providing for th- number ing of houses waa passed in ISS". but has long sines become a dead letter. It pro vides that when any house Is not prop erly numbered or not numbered at all It becomes the duty of the city engineer to give such house Its correct number and require ths earns to be placed on such touae in a conspicuous position next to the street. Mall carrier assert that at least half of the houses, especially those In the out skirts, ar not numbered at all, and In consequence their work of delivering mall is greatly hindered. It is also a well known fact that few of the streets in the city have any sign to identify them. Some two years ago a move was made in the city council to secure street signs, but owing to ths lack of funds at the time the mat ter waa allowed to dl a natural death. It la possible that the agitation to have Jit houses numbered may result in also kavtng th streets provided with signs. Plumbing and heating. Bixby A Son. Last Day of Crab gala.

SMALLPOX IS STAMPED OUT Indians in Tama Coontj Ficallj Consent to Abide by Herniations. GOVERNOR" CUMMINS IS A BUSY MAN Lara Coaaty Officers Discover a Fence ana Lecate a Lare Amaaat of tlea Good laebrlates Han Away, (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES. Nov. $0. (Special.) The State Board of Health Is In receipt of in formation to the effect that the epidemic of smallpox on the Indian lands In Tama county among the Musquakie Indians was completely crushed out and that by reason of the unusual measures taken by the state, In accordance with a resolution of the leg islature, and a special appropriation ex pended under direction of the president of the state board, there has been no recur rence of the smallpox among these Indiana. There Is some fear that during the next winter there may be another outbreak of the epidemic among the Indians, but Inves tigation has shown thst these Indians com plied with the quarantine In every respect, that they have cleaned up their lands and teepees and are now In much better sani tary condition than ever known before. The records show that about one-tenth of the Indians on the farm died of the smallpox when it was prevailing, and this Included a great many of the older members. Some of the best known of the men perished. There has always been an element of mal contents among the Indians who are per petual mlchlef-makers, and it is alleged that as a result of the decimation of the tribe this element has been materially al tered and the Indians have much greater respect for the state government than ever before. There are a few damage cases still pending In the federal courts Involving the old trouble over the tribal school, but this matter will be disposed of soon. The State Board of Health yesterday re ceived a report from Davenport showing there had been seven cases of smallpox there in the last month. One new case was reported from Iowa City and one new case from Grlnnell. Governor at Stork Show. Governor Cummins will attend the Inter national Stock show In Chicago this week and deliver an address. It is expected there will be governors from many other states present at the same time, but Governor Cummins has, since coming into 'Office, man lfested the greatest Interest In the live stock and farming Industries of the coun try. The governor Is to have quite a series of speaking dates In the month. On Tues day be delivers an address of welcome to the state meeting of the implement dealers In Des Moines. On Wednesday he Is at the stock show In Chicago. .On Thursday he speaks before a meeting or the Daughters of the Revolution In Dubuque, and the even ing of the same day is at a banquet at a church In the ssme city. On Friday he will preside at a 'possum supper In Des Mplnes given by a colored man. On Saturday he attends the state meeting of the traveling men and welcome them. On Sunday he pre sides at a Salvation Army meeting In Des Moines and Introduces General -William Booth. Next week he will attend the Na tlonal Reciprocity league meeting Jn De trolt. after which he will go to Washington. About tne 16th he wlU Oliver the dedlca tory address for the Drake free public li brary at Centervllle. Ko Cloe to Bask Roboory, No new developments In the Arthur bank robbery have manifested themselves since the looting occurred last Wednesday morn ing. The robbery, unquestionably, was com mitted by expert bank cracksmen, .and they have so completely covered up their trail since they left Arthur that the earth must have swallowed them. Sheriff McLeod of Ida county has bad several clues-as the pos sible Identity of the robbers, but after care ful Investigation he was convinced that the parties suspected were not the ones wanted. Broke l a Fence. Officers in Lucas county have the past week succeeded In discovering and break- lng up a fence for stolen goods among the i stolen from a store In Slgourney early In the month. The goods consists of silks : clothing, furs, eta, and the amount filled a wagon and made a load. Ths store was broken into and the goods carted away during the night, but until this raid was made there was no clue to the perpetrator. The raid resulted in the arrest of Zeke Brown, William Salisbury and William Boxdale, all colored, and they will be held ; for the robbery. Some articles were found which had evidently been stolen from other places than in Slgourney, and an effort Is feeing made to locate the places whence they came. There has been a vast amount thievery among the towns In southern Iowa and It is believed this discovery will go far to prevent Its reoccurrence. Escape front Hospital. Several more escapes from the inebriate hospital at Mount Pleasant were reported to Governor Cummins yesterday by Super intendent Applegate. Accompanying the J report was a letter In which the super- lntendent said the Inebriates were con stantly complaining of their treatment that In order to keep them satisfied It was necessary to allow them a much lib erty as possible and that when this course ws. followed it was impossible to prevent some from making breaks to escape. Lost a Tataabla Grip. H. L. Mecurn, a traveling auditor for th McCormlrk Harvesting Machine company, stopped at the Arlington hotel In New Hampton and left hia grips, containing valuable papers in the car of the landlord while he attended to business around town. When the omnibus called for passengers going north about 5 p. m., th clerk sent on of Mr. Mecurn' grip to th depot thinking he was going away on that train. Mr. Miller, the "bus driver, set It out onto the platform, and that is th last anyone knows about it. When the hotel people found that Mr. Mecurn wa not going away, they tried to get the grip returned, but it cannot be found, and, apparently, has been j stolen. The grip contained $4.60 of notes due th McCormick Harveatlng company, some 117.000 voucher or receipts from banks scattered over the country, to the asms company, wearing apparel, check books, etc. Became saeaenly lasaae.

From all over Iowa come reports of the difficulty of enforcing the new law against truancy. One of the greatent oostaiier is parental Indifference and often connivance with the truants. Davenport. Muscatine and other towns are talking of establishing a police patrJ of the Mississippi, whose heavily wooded islands and shores have become a hiding place for criminals.

TRUSTS IN CONGRESS (Continued rrom First Page.) ers, who deny that the omnibus hill ha the strength Its friend claim for It. Other matter which, in addition to th appropriation bills, are to receive atten tlon are trust legislation, the tariff and Cuban reciprocity. It is possible that the Cuban question may be postponed until the pending commercial treaty Is transmit ted, but there has not been any determi nation on that point. Few republican senstors admit the prob ability of any change of the tariff law dur ing the present session, but some bill to modify present schedules may be intro duced and reports made thereon. Some ceaators speak of tariff commission as a probability, but there are differences of opinion as to the utility of such a body. There is quite a unanimity of opinion favorable to anti-trust legislation and this opinion goes to the extent of predicting result along the lines indicated by Attor- ney General Knox, for the amendment of the Sherman anti-trust law. Differences of opinion as to the constitu tionality of some of the proposed changes hsve developed already. The commltte on the Judiciary will attempt to reconcile these difference and if It succeeds the present indications are favorable to affirmative ac tion by the senate. The democrat will place no obstacle in the way of such leg islation. There is so longer serious talk of con stitutional amendment for th control of trusts as it is recognised that In a short session it would be Impossible to secure action on such amendments. The present week will barely witness the beginning of three months' work. Tomor row the usual committee of two senators will be appointed to call on the president and resolutions of regret for the death of Senator McMillan of Michigan will bring the day' session to a close a few minutes after assembling. It Is possible that the oath of office may be administered to General Alger, Senator McMillan's suc cessor, but even this ceremony may fcs postponed for a day. On Tuesday the president's message will be read and beyond this no business will be attempted that day. The sessions of Wednesday and Thursday will also be brief with an adjournment from Thursday until the following Monday. On Wednesday la accordance with the agreement of last session. Senator Bever idge will doubtless present a report from the committee on territories and it will then go over until December 10. There will be, an effort to confirm some of th numerous nominations expected to be sent in at the first opportunity. Th list of those In whose Interest this effort will be made. Includes Oliver Wendell Holmes, associate Justice of ths United States supreme court. A large number of bills will be intro duced on Wednesday and Thursday and the foundation laid for what all predict will be a crowded session.
