Tries Electric Filing; Machine.
Freeman I Reed, clerk of the district
court, was experimenting yesterday with
an electric" filing stamp machine. The
machine, which Is run In connection with
an automatic clock by dry batteries, stamps
the day, hour and minute on the instrument
filed. Heretofore papers filed with the
clerk of the court were only stamped with
the date filed and not the hour - of the
day. Recently a dispute arose . In court
over the question when a certain paper
was filed and Judge Thornell ordered that
in future all papers when filed shall show
not only the date, but the hour of day
when filed. This the machine now on trial
In Clerk Reed's office does to the very
minute. Clerk Reed will suggest to the
Board of County Supervisors that one of
these machines be purchased for his office,
but has soms doubts whether the board will
not consider It too costly.

Commercial club. Mr. need made a visit
to Kansas City to Investigate the standing

paper. The company Is organised under
the laws of Oklahoma but Is said to have
plans In negotiation for establishing; plants

Council Bluffs.
Mr. Reed was assured that ths company

proposition to the mass meeting here, has
for a number of year been connected with
one- of the packing houses In Kansas City.

tlon (to the site the company asks that
local capitalists Invest about $60,000 In ths
stock, and further asks a bonus of 8 cents

of 500,000, or In other words. a bonus of $125,
000 when the company's plant here reaches
a business of 600,000 head of cattle a year.
Mr. Reed was informed by the promoters

the annual distributive sales of the plant
would amount to not less than $16,000,000,
In fact, according to the Information re

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DBS MOINES. Jan. 22. (Special.) Ths
political situation 'got another turn today
in this city. When the republican city
primary of last week was rounded up with
a sensational scene of ballot stealing and
shooting at the thieves snd a pretense of
trying to ferret out the thieves. It left
some of the positions decidedly In the
air. Ths failure to get the vote counted
In -the one precinct where the theft took
place was the occasion for calling a spe
cial primary In that precinct and It was
held today. Three positions were at stake
city assessor, aldcrman-at-large and
ward alderman. There was very little
doubt as to how the precinct went on each
of these, but the city committee decided
on a second primary and this concentrated
the fight In one day on one precinct hav
ing the power to decide the whole matter,
, The election was conducted peaceably and
quietly and there was no shooting and no
theft.
As a result of the balloting, A.C. Mor
rison gets the delegation for assessor,
which will nominate him over George
Schramm, the present assessor. Morrison
is pledged to make further reductions in
the assessment and thus had back of him
the large corporate Interests.
For alderman-at-large B. F. Whitney

Commlns Also Stands Pnt.
A local paper publishes a dispatch from
Washington stating that before leaving
Washington last night Governor Cummins,
in an Interview, saldt "The Iowa con
vention should select four delegates-at-large
who are In sympathy with a ma
jority of the convention. Instruct them
for President Roosevelt, adopt a ringing
platform including the 'Iowa Idea' and ad
journ. The district convention should do
likewise.
"There should be no attempt at division
of the delegation, and so far as I am con
cerned there will be none.
"The effort to convince the people that
what I am doing and saying will Injure
the president is not In good faith and can
not succeed. I am In full sympathy with
what he has done and Is doing. I am
for him unreservedly, first and last and
all the time. I think I can be trusted as
his friend, as confident at least as those
whose leaders bear so close a relation to
the Northern Securities company."

although he has tried several climates he
has not been benefited. Finally his phy

go on a farm and retire, permanently from
the ministry. This he. wlU do, and to
make a better use of his library he pre
sented the 900 volumes to the university In
memory of his father, Rev. William

backbone of the college, being president
and was mainly Instrumental In raising
the funds for its reconstruction after' the
