' TAKES PROPERTY WITHOUT RECOMPENSE Attorney Widiworlh Neglects Tnsh Additional Injnactloa Proceeding- and Thes Cases Likely to Go Orer, Judge Smith McPherson of the United States court has Issued a temporary In junction restraining Attorney Wadsworth from proceeding against the Grand hotel bar under the mulct law. This temporsry restraining order was l-sued upon appli cation of the attorneys for the receiver of the hotel, who was appointed by the fed eral court. In support of the application for the In junction it is contended that the Iowa mulct law Is unconstitutional In that It operates to take property without due process of luw and without compensation. in violation of tho fourteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States. The petition declares that "the statutes named (Iowa mulct law) are unlawful, un constitutional and void because under their provisions private prosecutors who are ir responsible and without the necessity of giving security for costs or of furnishing any bond whatever, without any protec tion or guard for the rights of citizens, but merely for the purpose of personal and private gain and for the gratification of personal malice, may be permitted to prosecute and force the defendants or those who they may allege have violated the provisions of the statutes, to incur ex pense and costs, loss of time and deprive them of their property without due process of law." There were no new developments In the saloon war yesterday. Attorney Wadsworth did not appear in court to prosecute the Injunction cases against the last five sa loons on which he had served notices of, suit, and It Is understood these will go over for the present. Regarding the disposition of the para phernalia alleged to have been used for gambling purposes, seized by Constable Faket Monday evening under the search warrant secured by Attorney Wadsworth, no time for the hearing has been set by Justice Carson. It war reported yesterday that W. A. Wells, local agent for the Storx Brewing company, as a result of the fight made against him and the company he repr renta, had resigned and that a settlement of the fight In consequence would be ef fected. When asked as to the truth bf the report t,hat he had resigned. Mr. Wells stated: "I am resigned to the Injunction issued against me: that Is all." By this Mr. Wells meant the Injunction against the Stori company's saloons secured by Attorney Benjamin, which was also directed against Mr. Wells personally. K. T. Plumbing Co. Tel. 2W; night F an. FIRE DRILlTn THE SCHOOLS Board ef Edncatlon Decides They Shall Be Held Regularly la the Fat are. At the meeting or the Board of Education last night on the mattor being brought up by Director Davenport It was decided to establish a regular system of Are drill In the publio schools of the city. The com mittee on buildings and grounds, being most oonversant with the different school buildings, was named as a special com mittee to act with Superintendent Clifford in formulating a set of rules for the drill.' These rules are to be printed and dis tributed, not only among the principals and teachers of each building, but also among the o'der pupils. Fire Chief Templeton appeared before the board and in maltjng a number of suggestions incident to the protection ot the schools and pupils against fire, rec ommended In the strongest terms the regu lar enforcement of a fire drill in each school building In the city. He called at tention to the fact that recently at the Washington avenue school during a fire drill one afternoon, the building where 800 pupils assemble, was emptied In an orderly manner In two minutes and five seconds. He expressed the opinion that with regular practice the pupils could be gotten out of the building In about one and a half minutes. At the Harrison street school he had been informed by a teacher that since the agitation looking to the re vival of the fire drill had been started, the school had been emptied In forty-seven seconds. . Chief Templeton - recommended that the drill be compulsory and that the principal of each building be required to make a regular report to the superintend ent showing the time of holding the drill. the number of pupils In the building and the time in which the school is emptied. In his report to the board Chief Temple ton stated that he had made a personal Inspection of every publio school building In the city since the Iroquois disaster and that with a few minor exceptions he had found the buildings In the very best of condition. ' At some of the buildings he had found that the doors opened inwards Instead of outwards and he had reported to the supervisor of buildings and grounds recommending that this be changed at once. He also called the attention of the board to the fact that the storage of old material, lumber and other supplies la the basement of the Bloomer school was a source of considerable danger In case of Are and suggested that the board procure a storage place apart from a school build ing. He suggested further that a section of hose with proper connections be kept In each building and that under no cir cumstances should gasoline be permitted In any building. Chief Templeton also mado a few 'suggestions relative to the fire escapes, which the board agreed to see were carried out. One of these sug gestions was that every window or exit leading to a fire escape should be kept unlocked during school hours and that during the same time every 'door In the building should be In a similar condition. He did not recommend that the use of ths fire escapee be made a part of ths fire drill, but suggasted that a class at a time be shown how to go down them. The board thanked Chief Templeton for his careful inspection of the school buildings and for his timely advice and recommenda tions. oecvjtary Ross made a report of the nuances of the school district, which showed that In. the teachers' fund there was just sufficient to meet the next pay roll, but that in April thetreasunr would agaJW be In proper condition to meet all I obligation The school house fund shows a balance of KfcXt on the right side of the j ledger, while the contingent .fund ia Qver- ' drawn $7,773. There would be aufflclent ) money. Mr. Ross said. In July to rstlre SIO.OOO of bonds, and the same amount In January next. The resignations' of Miss Nellie Tarsons and Miss Mary Montgomery were favorably acted upon. Mies Myrtle Winters mas added to the list of teachers at IX a month, and MIks Dairy Wood at 175 a month, the latter to teach in the high school. The resignation of O. B. Miles as jan itor at the Harrison Street school was re ceived and R. Jepson was appointed In his place. Miles wss forced to resign on ac count of 111 health. The art department of the Council Bluffs Woman's club was accorded the use of the high school auditorium for two stereopll con lectures on American art, to take place after February 15. Reporting on the midwinter graduating class which holds Its commencement exer cises Thursday evening, Superintendent Clifford stated that the eleven members, all young women, planned becoming teachers and he suggested being permitted to estab lish a normal class for them until the close of the year. This he suggested would be better for them than to begin teaching In rural schools. The permission was granted and the eleven graduates will receive normal instruction so many days a week from the superintendent and during the other days will be turned over to the care of some teacher or principal of the ward schools.

ORIGIN OF FIR A MYSTERY Kelt her Manager of Store Sor Fire Chief Able to Advance Any Theory, According to the statement made yester day morning by James M. Shelley, the manager, the stock of the Syndicate Trad ing company of Kansas City, which was destroyed by fire Monday night, would have invoiced about $15,500. Since the close of the holiday trade some of the insurance had been permitted to lapfe, but he said about $12,500 had been retained. Itcr it was stated that the com puny was car rying $14,000 on Its stock and fixtures at the time of the fire. Manager Shelley stated he spent Monday night in the Turkish bath rooms of the Her Grand hotel in Omaha and the first he learned of the fire was when he came to the store to open up yesterday morning. He was unable to advance any theory regarding the origin of the blase and de clared that it was entirely a mystery to him. He was the last to leave the store Monday evening, shortly after 6 o'clock, when the only light left burning was a single gas Jet In the center of the store. Everything was apparently all right when he left and he could not Imagine what had caused the fire. Mr. Shelley stated that possibly the firm might open up again in Council Bluffs but that his future plans were not as sured. Ho said he had received a tele gram from his father, George Shelley, a well-known j-olltlclan of Kansas City, ex pressing regret for the loss and urging him not to be discouraged, as they would open up again, The chemical engine from No. 3 house, while on the way to the fire Monday night. collided with a telephone Dole with the result that the tongue of the wagon was smashed. A defect In the hitching of the harness made It Impossible for the driver to guide or control his horses. Chief Tem pleton and two of the firemen sustained cuts from broken glass during the fire, but the injuries were not severe. People living across the street from the Syndicate Trading company's store on Main street claimed to have heard several loud explosions when the flames were first noticed. Mr. Shelley accounted for this by stating that they may have been caused by the breaking of the air-tight glass show cases, of which there were a number in the store. Chief Templeton, after making an inves tigation of the burned store, yesterday was unable to arrive at any conclusion as to the origin of the fire or In -what part of the building it started.

TAKING OF BALLOTS COMPLICATES RESULT Rnmor Has It that Bryan Has Depu tised Tonne to Write the Xest Na tional Platform of Ills Party, t'nttlnsj Oat Free Silver. (From a Stall Correspondent.) PES MOINES, Jan. 19. tSpeclal.)-The city republican primary of yesterday left many sore spots and there Is fair promise of trouble yet to come. There 1 no doubt of the nomination of George Mattern for mayor, as he has seventy-six delegates to the convention, or five more than enough to nominate and has nearly 800 plurality of the popular vote as counted. At the sume time John MacVlcar talks of contesting the election on the ground of the alleged gross frauds practiced and if not, then going before the people as an independent can didate. The taking of some of the ballots on the EaBt Side In one precinct has brought about many complications. It can have rfo effect on the mayoralty tight, and It Is now believed it was an attempt to Influence the aldermanlc contest. The two thieves who entered the booth while the count was In progreFS had an order from Chairman Harsh of the city committee and the man who did the shooting was a MacVlcar judge who was armed and ready for Just such trouble. It Is not known that anybody was hit. The doubt ns to how that precinct went complicates the as sessor fight. George Schramm, the present city assessor, has tho most delegates pledged, but If the'preclnct should ballot over again, as has been proposed, and A. C. Morrison ohould get the precinct it would be a tie between the two, with one precinct pledged to a third man and hold lng the balance of power. The trouble In the precinct bIto complicates tho alder manlc fight in the same way. The follow lng Is the net result of the primary: Mayor-George W. Mattern. Solicitor W. M. Bremner. Engineer John W. Budd. Auditor John B. Lucas. Treasurer Horry F. Gross. Police Judge W. A. Trls. Assessor George C. Schramm. Pnrk commissioner Sidney A. Foster. Alderman-at-lHrge in West Des Moines L,. t .

Democrats Plan for Convention. Information received here privately Is to the effect that General James B. Weaver of Iowa, took a conspicuous part In the conference held in New York City on the day of the arrival of W. J. Bryan, wherein it was decided ihat Charles A. Towne should prepare the draft of a plat form for the democratic national conven tion embodying the views of the former populists and free silver republicans to be presented to the resolutions committee at St. Louis. It Is alpo announced that they are willing to leave out all reference to free silver and may modify, their views on Imperialism, but desire that the other rad ical measures In the Kansas City platform be retained. Here In Iowa the belief Is gaining ground that the movement also In cludes pushing Hearst aa the democratic nominee for president. A large element of the conservative democrats who are In the house and senate of the state are op posed to the Hearst movement and there will be a hard fight In Iowa If an effort Is made to commit the party to Hearst. Republican Complication. When the republican state committee meets to fix the time and place for the republican state convention for the nomina tion of delegates to the national convention there is likely to bo a sharp contest over the question of the representation on the committee from the Ninth district. Asmus Boysen of Audubon county, who was elected two years ago, has since removed to Chicago where he makes his permanent headquarters and his home. Last year the members of the committee permitted a proxy to be admitted for him, but it is un derstood that any proxy coming from him will be resisted now, especially If there is a close vote in the committee on the ques tion of location of the convention. It Is expected the call will be Issued soon. Chamberlain's t'ouati Remedy a Fa. worite.
