( Special. V County treasurers In a majority of the counties of the state are making collections of ths road taxes In a manner not con templated by lew. The discovery of this fact was made in tbe office of the state auditor this week when returns were re ceived showing that in most of ths coun ties of the stste the entire cash road tax was being collected at tbe first payment of taxes In March. Under an old law re lating to the payment of a portion of tbe road taxes and all delinquent road taxes, s)1 was due In the spring and pay able then. Tbe Impression prevails that this system continued under tbe new Iowa law. But a good many complaints ware made and the attorney general was asked ror so opinion. Attorney General Mullana rendered to State Auditor Carroll a writ ten opinion that under the new law there waa In effect a repeal of tbe old law and that the road taxes are collectable like other taxes, in Installments. Only one half of tbe tax was payable before April L but in a great many of the counties of ths state the entire road tax has been collected and Is in the hands of the county treasurer. The railroad companies. In many instances, refused to pay more than half the tax due, but few of the general tax payers raised objections. In counties where the tax has all been paid, road work can be done early In the year. This will be the first year In which tbe law can be given a fair test, because this is the first year tbe taxes have been collected fairly. Tbe effort made to repeal the law was before It had been tried. Arrlealtaral Year Book. The annual Tear Book of the State De partment of Agriculture Is now being printed and will soon be issued for free circulation. The Tear Book has been de layed because of the rush of work for ths stste printer Incidental to tbe legislative printing, but It Is now being finished. The book will contain the report of the state farmers' institute held In December last, with reports of tbe state agricultural board, report of the state dairy convention, of the live stock breeders and of various other allied bodies, together with valuable papers and special articles on farm topics. It has been edited under the direction of J. C. Simpson, secretary of the Agri cultural department. There will be in the book pictures of some typical Iowa farms and farm buildings on the best farms or the state, especially some In northern Iowa. May Terse af Ceart.

IOWA CITY. Ia, May L (Special.) Hon. Parker K. Holbrook of Onawa, chairman af tba executive committee of the Board of Regents or the State University or Iowa, denies) that the regents ars considering requesting ths resignation of President C K. Mac Lean. Newspaper reports which have appeared under Sioux City and Des Moines head lines to the effect that President Mac- Lean's resignation was to be asked, have been much discussed st the university to day and have everywhere occasioned sur prise. Governor Cummins, the chairman of the Board or Regents or the univer sity, could not be reached ror a verifica tion or the rumor, and Mr. Holbrook. the chairman of the board In the governor's absence, was reached. "I know nothing whatever ef any such project or discussion." said Mr. Holbrook today. "The regents are not considering nor will they consider any such action, so far as I know. It Is customary ror the board to talk ever ror eoms time, I should think, such an action, snd no in timation or such a thing has reached my ears The relations or the regents with President Mac Lean are and always have been most harmonious. "There was a great deal or work to be done when President MacLean came to Iowa, and I think that the regents are agreed that he has done the work well: that he has been heartily assisted by the faculties of the university and that he has tbe support of faculties and alumni In his rurther work. "The university, so I had thought, came out of tbe recent session of the legisla ture better fitted for Its work than ever before. The appropriations for engineering settled the policy of a great university, complete In all departments In this work. President MscLean has been heartily as sisted by all the friends of the university. 'The talk that President MacLean was secured for five years, which will be up in. June, and that a further election will be refused, has no basis of fact whatever. President MacLean was not secured on any such basis. All our professors and as sistant professors hold their positions until resignation or request for resignation for cause, A professorship at any state uni versity Is practically regarded as a life position at the desire 1 1 the professor. There is no cause for any jch thing as a request for the president's resignation now known to the regents, so far as I know, and I think that every regent will regret that any mention has been made of such a matter. I do not know who Is the author of such a story, nor where he Is. nor have I seen sny such story; but as a regent I know nothing of Its possibility, and I can see no reason for Its drculatlon. "The board of regents will meet at Iowa City next week. All correspondence and conference I have had with members of the board Indicate that everything about the university Is In the best possible con dition, fully meeting our rcpes. We ex pect to decide many questions as to new bs II d trigs, which the Mbersllt of tbe state has msde possible of err-tlnn the coming year. "I should characterize the report as pre posterous." President MacLean, when shown the Sioux City and Des Moines reports re ferred to, expressed surprise st them. "I know nothing of any such matter." he said. "I do not care to discuss such a matter further." Members of the faculties of the uni versity, when seen, expressed sstonlshment at the stories, and Ignorance of any such state of facts. The Bee Want Ads are the best Business Boosters. HAYE COME TO BASE USES Old Menltore af the Asserteaa Wavy laed as Targets for Modern Salss af War. Following closely In the lesd set by Great Britain, the United States govern ment has decided to use some of Its oldest vessels ror target practice, for the drilling and experience of the gunners and officers on our modern war vessels. The first vessel to be put to this use is the old civil war monitor, the Montauk. Its keel waa laid In 1863 by John Ericsson of Brooklyn. It Is or l.tTS tons displacement, 300 feet long and forty-six feet in beam. At present it Is out of commission. In the League Island navy yard. It Is proposed to tow It to the Brooklyn navy yard and put It through such repairs and changes aa will better prepare It for the battering It is to undergo. It Is the sams thing as the British government hss been doing for some years, and which has occasioned no little comment. It will give the men-of-war men practice In firing at shooting tar gets, snd. rurther. and primarily, it will allow or observations to be made regarding ths effect or modern ordnance. Upon reaching the Brooklyn navy yard It will be made to look as much like a cruiser aa possible. Armor will be placed on it as heavy ss it will carry and then It will be taken probably up In tbe sound and filled full of holes, both above and below. Ths light and rapid-fire guns will be ased from above; the torpedo tubes will send their sneaking projectiles Into Its hull and the whole operation will be watched and recorded, for the betterment of the navy's guns snd gunnery. The shooting will be done In as shallow water as possible, and when It sinks the holes will be patched up snd It will bs put through the same operation over and over again until It falls to pieces. The old monitor is one or the first or this class or vessels. It has undergone many engagements Torpedoes have been fired at It and heavy ordnant has directed its missiles at Its single turret, but It still float. If tbe plan proves feasible ' the other seven monitors now lying out of com mission in tbe League island navy yard will In all probability be used for tbe same purpose Brooklyn Eagle, The Bee Want Ads are the best Business Boosters.

In surface workings a very good showing or high grade ore has been made on tins property assays from which' run exceeding high. In one tunnel several good slxed verticals have been cut. which from indications, come to gether at depth, and It Is for the purpose of cutting Ibis ore body at a low level that work la the present shaft Is being prose cuted.

When tbe permanent plant Is built It will provide for the re treatment or the tailings by. the cyanlds process. Bat feme Plaat ta at trerk, Cl'STER CITY, Msy L (Special ) Oil Monday last the stamps began dropping In the mill of the Extreme oompany, located three miles west of Custer City, and - It now looks as though the plant Is booked! ror a long run. During the shutdown the plant has been remodeled and Improved, so It Is now up to date and promises te give) the best satisfaction. It Is the intention to Increase the capacity of tbe plaat to alxtp stamps should the present operations prove successful, which will jslve it a daily ca pacity of at least tons. Water for the mill Is tskea from Ruby creek, a pumping plant having been Installed on that Stream, to lift it over the divide. Everything icdet for deep mining In the way of machinery has been Installed and the company Is now almost on a producing basis, and with- the prospect of becoming one of tbe beet pay ing propositions In the southern HUla, Most or the values carried In the ore are free milling, but the company will re-treat Its tailings by tbe cyanide process. A Very large ore body hss been exposed In tha workings of the property and tbe develop ment work heretofore done upon It has left It in such shape that the present mill la guaranteed a constant supply. The Clara Belle Mining company la In stalling concentrators and will also add, several cyanide vats to its Termalns stamp mill. It has been found that a large amount or the gold carried by tbe ore baa been lost In the treatment heretofore given It. and cannot be saved by amalgamation, so tbe improvements mentioned are .being made. At the depth or S feet the ore car ries free gold specimens, while its average Is very rich, and if the management suc ceeds In saving the values contained there Is no reason why the Clara' Belle should not soon become one of the moat Important producers in tbe Black Hills.
