Property owners and residents on Graham avenue, which 1 now being paved with vitrified brick, object to the motor company being permitted by the city council to pave . the portion of the street between its rails and two feet on each side with granite block. They contend that the motor com pany should use the same material as the rest of the street la paved with. . Graham avenue Is a residence street and the strip of granite block in the center of the brick paving will not only mar Its appearance but force all trafllo on each side of the street. Those who object to the motor company using granite blocks on this street .point to Pearl street, where between the tracks stone is laid, while the rest of the street is paved with brick. The result has been that ruts have been worn In the brick adjoining tha granite blocks and it will be but a few years be fore part of the paving will have to be renewed. As a compromise it has been suggested that in the event of the motor company declining to remove the granite blocks be tween its tracks and replace them with bfick the company be requested to at least allow brick to be laid up flush with its rails on the outside. Aldermen Casper and McDonald have been appointed a commit tee to confer with the motor company and see what can be done. It Is said that the motor company was granted permis sion by the city, council to use granite blocks on Graham avenue, but even If this la the case some of the abutting property owners are talking of taking the matter Into court and see if the company cannot be compelled to pave with brick a the rest of the street Is. Contractor Wlckham has announced that as soon as he completes the paving on Graham avenue he will commence work on Harrison street. The city council has de cided that the concrete filler shall be used on Harrison street to prevent the paving being washed by the heavy fall of water fnom the surrounding hill streets. The concrete filler was used on North Main street, which, although laid with home made brick la considered one of the best paved streets In the city. N. T. Plumbing Co, Tel. so. Night PM?.

PILL ROLLERS IN SESSION Lsr;e Attendance at Annual Meeting of Pharmaceutical Ataooiation. TALK OF WAR ON DEPARTMENT STORES President Baker Also Wants taw Changed Regarding- the Grant Ins; of Certificates te Pharmacists. When President Howard 8. Baker of Bloux City called the opening session of the twenty-fourth annual meeting of the Iowa Btate Pharmaceutical association to order last evening In the ball room of the Grand hotel, 200 members of the associa tion, many of them accompanied by their wives and other members of their families, were present. In his annual address President Baker urged the members of the association "to go after the department stores with barbed hooka" and recommended that an effort be made to secure the repeal of that sec tion of the state pharmacy law which per mits the granting of certificates to grad uates of pharmacy holding diplomas from the State university, or from other schools or colleges of pharmacy, without examina tion by the state commission. Regarding the encroachment of the de partment store on the business of the phar macist President Baker said: I believe that the condition of the Iowa pharmacist la better today than In the past, yet I do not believe that he has made the commercial Invasion he should on the department and general stores of the state, which are. constantly eating In on side lines that originally and rightfully belong to us. Yet I donbt not, were all the work and broadening commercial Ideas that have been pushed Into sctlve service the last year enumerated here, we could but admit of material advancement. I want the Iowa pharmacist to observe at all times commercial dignity and honor, but I cannot stand meekly aside without admonishing him to go after the depart ment stores with barbed hooks. Let us add to our business lucrative lines that will meet the loss sustained In meeting cut-raters. Show me the pharmacist who seeks out the paying lines to add to his business, especially the lines that are already In the department stores and catalogued with them as their loss reclaimers, and I will show you a successful business career, the strength of which is not only measured by Its weslth or Its Importance in the world's progress, by its relative commer cial position, but the man who strikes the department store in a vital spot, and who Is destined to be one nf the factors In solving the cut-rste problem. Wants Graduates Examined. In urging the repeal of the aectlon of the state pharmacy law relative td the grant ing of certificates without examination to graduates of any school or college of phar macy, Mr. Baker said: I most earnestly urge the legislative committee for the ensuing year to use all honorable effort to amend section 2689 of our pharmacy laws by striking from the section the words, "Graduates of pharmacy holding a diploma from the State univer sity, or from any school - or college of ftharmacy, requiring a course of study and aboratory work equivalent to that pre scribed by the said State university In Its catalogue for the year 187-98. may be The evils from the above enactment are In evidence at every hand. Under this section the Board of Pharmacy Is com pelled to Issue certificates to any and all applicants that chow a diploma from the State university of Iowa, or any college throughout the country, alleging Ita stand ard as a pharmacy achool in equality with that of our State university. In other words. It practically converts the State Board of Pharmacy Into , Judges of the standard of schools all over the continent, and not judges of the applicants' ability to practice pharmacy for the safety of the public The Board of Pharmacy has no means of ascertaining the standard of many schools in remote districts, without personal Inspection of equipment and the practical work, and this would entail tre mendous exponse to the state. The result has been the enforced passing of many applicants who have not had a day's experience In tne am Dusiness, ana I was told by a prominent druggist that a clerk under his employ, who received his certificate In this manner, could cot tell the difference between a bottle of War ner's kidney and liver cure and a bottle of Plnkham's pills, for he had never seen them. ' , I would further recommend the repeal of that portion of section 2699. namely: "After registration an annual fee of $1 for a renewal certificate shall be paid on or before the 22d day of March by all phar macists who continue In business, and the conduct of such business without such re newal shall be a misdemeanor." And that portion of section 2691. namely: "Which shall hold good for one year, anil no longer, without renewal. Renewals shall be granted upon the payment of the annual Tha nrimirv nhlect In the passage of this lsw was for the maintenance of the commission, which, at that time. In our Judgment, was eminently proper to render the board self-sustaining through the ss slstance of the druggists, and not at the exnense of the taxpayers of the state. The time has now arrived for its elim ination from the code. Inasmuch as the office of the commission is not only self sustaining, but an income to the state, sbnve all expenditures for its operation, of $16,000 per annum. Informal Cession at Nlsrht. The evening session was opened with prayer by Rev. James Thomson, pastor of the Congregational church, following which Mayor Dell O. Morgan, on behalf of the city and the Council Bluffs Retail Drug gists' association, of which he is president, made a short welcoming address, which was responded to by First Vice President F. J. Grassier of Chapln, In the absence of W. H. Torbet of Dubuque. During the evening musto was furnished by Whaley's orchestra and the Mendelssohn male quar tet rendered several selections. Each per son present at the meeting was presented with a pound box of Ganymede chocolate bonbons through the courtesy of John O. Woodward & Co., the Council Bluffs candy men. During the afternoon the wives of the local druggists acted as a reception com mittee at the Orand hotel and took per sonal charge of the women guests as they arrived. The Elks' clubhouse was thrown open to the visitors aad many of them took advanUge of the courtesy during the afternoon and early part of the evening. During the morning the state pharmacy board, consisting of Fletcher Howard of Des Moines, president: N. T. Hlnrlx of Columbus Junction and F. Russell of Rock well City, held an examination at the Washington avenue school of applicants for registration. Twenty-three applicants took the examination. Proa;ren for Today.

PROIESTS AGAINST RAISE Eallroadi and Almost Half of Iowa Coun ties Saj AtMMment it B'got. COST OF STATC INSTITUTIONS INCREASES Additional Sana Is In Abont nme Pro portlen (or Hnmhen Cnred (or, However, as In Prevlona Biennial Period. (From a Btaff Correspondent) DEB MOINES, July 14. (Special.) The hearing of the state executive council, con stating of the governor, auditor, treaeurer and secretary of atate, waa concluded to day, so far aa It related to the queatlon of real estate valuations. Representatives of about forty of the ninety-nine counties of the state appeared before the council to protest against any increase In their as sessments, contending that the assessments aa mad are all right and represent sub stantially the sale value of the property at the present time. It was brought out In the discussion, however, that some coun ties are assessed higher than others pro portionately, and that without any appar ent reason, and the counties assessed high est are not asking that they be reduced, liut contend that their assessments are fMr. It was also brought out that farm lands are not being sold In Iowa at as good prices aa they were a year or two yeara ago, but there haa been a decided slump In values all over the atate. accord ing to the offlclala from the countlea who have made the matter a study. Much of the time of the council haa been taken up In ascertaining what will be the proper method of arriving at the proper valua tion of the counties. The council la re quired to And the actual value and to make the assessment accordingly. Repre sentatives of the railroads have Insisted before the council that this would be un fair to the farmers and to all property owners In the state. Tomorrow the matter of railroads will be taken up by the council and the repre sentatives of most of the companies doing business in Iowa are here to be heard be fore the council. They will contend against any Increase In railroad assessments. It has been claimed by them that the assess ments lsst year were excessive and this year should not be so high. In spite of this It la generally believed the atate offi cials will make an Increase In railroad asessments this year, largely because of the enormous Increase In real estate and other values In the two years. It lo ex pected also that the total valuation for taxation purposes of all the property of the state will be about $650,000,000 thla year aa agalnat $570,000,000 laat year, and aa a consequence the tax levy for th year will be reduced for state purposes from t.5 mills to 1.2, or possibly t.l mills on the dollar. Tha council Is required to raise about $2,000,090 In taxes for the yar. Cost of State Instltatlons. According to the report of the book keeper for the State Board of Control, the expense of the state Institutions for sup port during the entire biennial period ended June 30 last, waa $2.33.4W.S4, which waa $173.$7.8$ more than fo: the previous bien nial period. The amount spent for salaries In the biennial period Increased $64,101.82. which waa the most considerable Item of the Increase. The items relating to cloth ing, household stores, postage and sta tionery, ordinary repairs and transporta tion of patients, decreaeed during the period. The Increase In total of expenses was regarded as about equal to the gen eral Increase of business done In the period. v . Want Permit to Send Body. Governor Cummins today received from Governor Mickey of Nebraska a tele graphic request for permission for the transportation of a corpse across the stats of Iowa. It was In reference to the trans portation of the body of Miss Cook from Detroit, Mich., to Nehawkt. Neb. The Michigan authorities had reported that while the person had died of smallpox, the body had been placed lit a hermetically sealed casket and prepared for shipment In a manner that would render It entirely safe, In the estimation of the Michigan authorities. The matter waa referred to the aecretary of the Btate Board of Health here, who reported that the Iowa rules forbid the transportation of a amallpox victim, no matter how the body haa been prepared, that the rulea In Michigan are more lax than In other states. It Is doubt ful If the permission can be given here. New Mllltln Company. General Byers went to Ida Grove today to look' Into the prospects for a company of the Iowa National guard there.

Pardoned that She May Marry. Alice Miller, formerly of thla city, who was serving a term in the penitentiary for keeping a house of Ill-fame, has been pardoned by the governor.

It la her Intention to begin di vorce proceedings at once. The Boone man signifies his intention of marrying her and taking her to a farm. Rnbena Piotare Disposed Of.

Mr. Lehner secured this priceless gem. Competent artists went on the stand, however, and declared that the picture is a fraud and worthless.
