The conven tion to select two delegates and two alter nates from the Ninth congressional district to the natlon.'tl convention In Chicago will be held In Ues Moines on the morning of May IS, prior to the state convention. The meeting of the Ninth congressional district committee was held at (he Grand hotel, with Chairman L. 8. Robinson of ("lien wood presiding and E. Ixirkwood of Harlan acting as secretary.

According to the call for the republican convention of Pottawattamie county, but one set of delegates Is to be selected, who will attend the congressional. Judicial and state conventions, as It was generally sup posed that both the congressional and Judicial conventions would be held in this city and on the same day.

COAL MINERS AND OPERATORS IN SESSION Men Insist on Present .vale KeinsT Contlnaed In Force anil the Up erntors Are Demanding; u. Reduction. (From a Staff Correspondent.! DES MOINES, March g.-(Special.)-The expected movement for removal of the school for the deaf from Council Bluffs to some place nearer the center of the state came today In both ends of the legislature by the Introduction of two bills looking to that end. The bill was prepared by Mr. Wright of Fort Dodge and Introduced In the hou.e, and a duplicate put In the sen ate by Mr. Lyons of Cresco. The bill pro vides that the school shall bo removed and that It shall be located at Des Moines or at some point within 100 miles of Des Moines, the location to be determined by the Board of Control, and there Is an ap propriation of $250,000 for the buildings and other necessaries in connection with the removal. The matter had been delayed for some time and It was felt for a time that no serious attempt would be made to effect removal, but the bills of today indicate that a hard fight is to be made. The fact that the bill carries such a large appropriation will prove a handicap to tlio removal, however, and tho friends of the present site are contldent that no change will be made. There was introduced In the house, today tin Important bill for a uniform policy of fire insurance in Iowa, which specifies cer tain things that must be contained In every valid policy to make It conform to tho Iowa law. It was by Mr. Langan of Clin ton. 1 evr Fair Grounds nalldlnsj. The appropriation of $17,000 with which to build a new central agricultural build ing on the state fair grounds, to be for the agricultural, horticultural and dairy departments, and to take the place of three other buildings which will thereby be turned over to other uses, received unanimous Indorsement In the house today. Tho house passed the bill to appropriate $10,500 for the building of a monument at Andersonville. Ga., to the memory of the Iowa soldiers who died while prisoners there. The bouse passed a bill to add w'ld tur keys, ducks and geese to the list of game fowls, so that not more than twenty-five should be found in the possession of one person. The factory inspection law was brought up again on a motion to reconsider the vote by which It was lost and It was re ferred to the labor committee. The committee on roads reported In favor of Indefinite postponement of the bill to repeal the present road law, but a strong minority put In a report recommending passage of the Chassel bill. enate Proceedings. Senator Newberry brought his measure, which provides for the examination of county treasurers by a state board and which was killed In the senate last week, before that body again today In a bill, which provides that county boards of sup ervisors shall appoint boards of examiners for county officers and shall, arrange for a uniform systm of bookkeeping for county auditors and county treasurers. The committee on agriculture reported favorably the ar.tl-horse docking bill, with some amendments from Its original form. As reported the bill prevents the docking of horses within the borders of the state, but does not prevent the Importation of animals already docked. A warm debate occurred In the spnate on he Judiciary committee bill, which has for .is purpose the stopping of the practice which it is claimed is Indulged In, in many localities u.ider the present law of prose cuting saloon keepers and others for viola tion of the mulct law, not In good faith, but as a black-mailing scheme. Senator Molsberry sought to amend the bill by striking from the code the $25 fee now provided for attorneys successful In such proceedings. His amendment failed and the bill was passed. Seeking; Xew Candidate for Congress. After repeated conferences held here with politicians over the district. Judge E. E. Nichols of Perry, has practically de clined to make the race for member of congress against Hull, and the republicans of the outside counties are trying to reach an agreement to have Judge J. H. Hender son of Indlanola, consent to make the race. They believe that. In view of the trickery Indulged in by both sides in Polk county and the general resentment that Is felt against the county by reason of this. they can combine and select the candi dates.
