DEB MOINES, May 1. ( 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

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.

RO TRUTH I TUB MACLKA STORT
Regent Helaraalt Saye I alverslty
Matters Are Harsaealeas.
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
"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.

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,

DEAD WOOD, a,D.. May L (Special).
Preparations are being made for a resump
tion of work on the property of the Lex
ington Hill company in Spruce gulch, and a
number of the piiniclpal officers and stock
holders of tbe corporation have been In tbe
Hills looking over the situation. Some time
ago It s as deemed best to close down the
plant of tbe company In Spuce until some
treatment more satisfactory than the one
then employed could be Introduced for the
working of ths ore and It has teen idle
ever since. It is now the Intention to re
model the present plant along liaes sug
gested by experiments with the ore and
keep It In operation until such time as the
company Is prepared to build its new mill.
which will be of several hundred tons dally
capacity. In this district, besides the prop
erty of the Lexington Hill company are a
number or others which have been rr pre
sented ror years by Individual owners, and
from many of them lots of good ore hae
been shipped. With a big treatment plant
In operation Spruce gulch would he one of
the most productive districts in tbe Black
Oold bricks, the usual contributions of
Spearflsh. Dakota, Imperial Wasp t and
Penobscot have been deposited with the
United States sssay office In this city for
the last half of the month or March, while
a number or other properties will send in
their share or tbe yellow metal within a
few days: Nearly all or the plants In the
Blsck Hills are now working up to the
limit or their capacities and the indications
are that the country is entering upon an
era or gold production which will excel
any that has passed. ,
Ceatraets for Big MI1L
Cont'scti have been let by tbe Gilt Edge-
Maid company for lumber and the other
material which will enter Into the' con
struction or its big mill en Strawberry
gulch, while tbe work or grading tbe site
for the plant is already under way. It is
tbe intention of tbe management to have
the mill In operation In tbe shortest time
possible, and In tbs meantime work of
opening up tbe mines continues. Although
the property has been well developed by
past op. rations the company Intends to
have It in kuch shape by the time Its plant
Is ready to run that there will be a supply
of ore on hand sufficient to keep it going
Indefinitely. Ri c; nt work on different parts
of the properly jrovs that ths same ore
bodies which In past years had mads tbs
mine famous are still capable of producing
large amounts of good rock, and when
deeper work has been performed on them
that they will prove as rich as ever. Tbe
company is well fixed financially, and tbe
new work which has been undertaken will
rot be allowed to flag for an instant. Build
ings for the accommodation of tbe officers
and men employed by tbe company are
under course of erection and within a few
days even-thing will be ready for the con
duct or extensive operations on tbe ground.
Another mining company Is preparing to
Install an electric plant ror the purpose of
moving it machinery, the Pluma Is consid
ering plans for such a motive power. This
company expects to have Its present forty
stamp mill In operation at an early date
this summer, and after the stamps begin
to fall to start work upon tbe addition to
the mill aud oa tbe work of installing
cyanide tanks to retreat the tailings. Tbe
new drainage tunnel has been completed

body, but It has proved to be of ex

who Is giving the work his personal super
vision, says tbe conditions are highly
favorable, aVd he looks for a big reserve
there. Work m the deep shaft will be re
sumed In a short time and that hole sunk

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

tailings by tbe cyanide process. A Very
large ore body hss been exposed In tha
workings of the property and tbe develop

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.
