Raey Iar 'or nishop. Rt. Rev. T. N. , Morrison, Episcopal bishop of Iowa, put m a busy day in Coun cil Bluffs yesterday. At St. Paul's church in the morning he delivered his usual ad drees on church extension work in Iowa and was greeted by a large congregation.

At the close of the morning service Bishop Morrison addressed the children of the Sunday school and In the afterrmon went to All Saints' mission, where he addressed tthe Sunday school chil dren snd congregation. In the evening at St. Paul's he administered the rite of con firmation to a class of fifteen, twelve being presented by Rev. W. II. Starr, rector of St. Paul's, and three by Rev. T. J.

Fall ing to And what they were In search of, Vanderpoort and his friend hied themselves across the river, where they evidently iouna more man sumciem to quencn tneir thirst. Now Malvern happens to be what is known In Iowa as a "dry town," so Van derpoort and his friend seized the oppor tunity while across the river of laying; in a stock of bottled goods. On the return trip to Council Bluffs Van derpoort was considerably under the in fluence of his deep potations In Omaha and had to be put off the car. His friend went to his assistance, but when he saw the patrol wagon drawing nigh he decided to leave Vanderpoort to his fate. At the city Jnll Vanderpoort was relieved of three quart bottles of whiskey and one pint flask of the same liquor. He was much con cerned over the disappearance of his friend, who, he said, had some bottled goods belonging to him. N. T. Plumbing Co. Tel. an; night, F-6J7. Judicial Convention In Jane, Chairman H. H. Roadlfer of the repub lican judicial committee has announced that the convention of the Fifteenth Ju dicial district will be held in Council Bluffs In June, the exact date not yet determined.

An unfavorable In uence affecting Wall street, the gold ex iMirts and the unsatisfactory crop reports had a weakening Influence here.

ISSUE IS ALL ON PLATFORM Iowa SensUn Said to Be Opposes to the 8tnd Patter Ida. PARTY VETERANS AT THE CONVENTION John IT. Irwla, a Leader of Years Ago, to H Temporary Chalraaaa of Oatherlasr Troables of Democrats. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES. May 15. (Special.) The republican state convention is to be held In Des Moines this week for the purpose of naming four delegates to the national republican convention at Chicago. The four delegates are already named in fact so that there 'Is not very much for the convention to do. These four delegates to the national convention' are Governor A. B. Cummins, Senator W. B. Allison, Senator J. P. Dolllver and Joseph W. Blythe. The governor represents the. tariff revisionists, who insist that the republican party will enter upon an examination of the tariff schedules with a view to deter mining whether any of them are too high and the last named of the four represents the standpatters, who are Insisting that there shall be nothing done now or at any time in the future looking to changes In the present tariff schedules. The fight In the state, so far as there has been any, has been on this Issue. The two senators are rather noncommittal, though both heartily endorse the platform of last year and the year previous In the state and the national platforms from which these state platforms were made. It Is believed that three of the four delegates to be named would. In case of an Issue In the national convention, stand for a platform that wou,d mako poB8lbIe tariff revision, , T1A invention nrellmlnarles are The convention preliminaries are all ar ranged for. The convention will be held In the Auditorium, and there will be dis trict caucuses for eleven congressional dis tricts. These will precede the state con vention. The work of the caucuses has been pretty well mapped out and there has been no material change in the situa tion as to the district delegates In the past month. Some question has been raised in the Sixth, Fourth, Second and Eleventh districts, where the situation is not en tirely clear as to what will be done. The standpatters have made an effort to cap ture the Sixth district and the Fourth and hope to get at least one delegate In the Eleventh, but are not sure of any of them. Party Veterans to Come. John N. Irwin of Keokuk, who many years ago was a factor in Iowa politics, is to be the temporary chairman of the convention. He will deliver a conservative speech and it Is understood will speak for revision and reciprocity much along the lines of the state platform. He was selected for this task some time ago, though he has not appeared a', a state convention for many years and will have to be Introduced to most of the delegates. There will be most of the state leaders present. Secretary Shaw will arrive In the city tomorrow and remain for the convention. He will speak for the ad ministration. Solicitor of the Treasury M. D. CConnell and Director of the Mint Roberts will also be here, The entire congressional delegation will be on hand. Governor Cummins and the state Officers will be conspicuous. It ' will be a con ventlon with some opportunity for oratory, for It will not have much to da The platform committee will prepare the plat form and the delegates are already se lected. Second State Convention. A second state convention will be called fof the ,electlon of th, 8tat. Ucket and for the reorganization of the republican state committee for the campaign. The present state committee has opened head quarters and Is dolrujr business, but only In a preliminary way. It la not yet known who will be chairman of the state com mlttee, but the present chairman, R H Spence, of Mt. Ayr, la most likely .to receive the honor again. No state campaign will be started until late In the fall. The congressional norni nations have all been made or are out lined, except In the Second district. The delegates from that district to the' state convention are understood to be coming to the convention to ask conservative action at the hands of the convention so as to pave the way for a victory in that district in the fall. Judge Wade, the dem oc ratio nominee, will make a hard fight for re-election and the convention might easily make It hard to put up a campaign against him. . This Is the only district of the state where there Is any doubt Democrats Are Dtssattafled. The democrats are dissatisfied with a part of the results of their state convention and there la strong talk of deposing the chairman of the state committee. The stste convention, in its seal to get the or ganization Into the hands of the Bryan forces, passed a resolution directing the state committee to elect A. W. Maxwell as chairman of the committee, and to make sure he would be able to retain the place the same resolution made Charles . A Walsh, national committeeman, a member of the state committee. The deposed chair man, A. E. Jackson, la classified as anti Hearst, but a very fair man. Now It Is proposed that Maxwell shall not be recog nised by the committee as chairman and that Jackson be retained. Maxwell has found It necessary to come out In his own paper with a pledge that hewlll be fair to all factions and not be chairman of only a part of the committee, but it Is doubtful If this, will satisfy the democrats. The second state convention may undo tho work done by the first In the matter of reorganizing the state committee. 1 Controversy Over Brick. A peculiar controversy has arisen In this city over the brick paving on streets where the paving has been abandoned. The city claims that the brick which is to be takert up belongs to the city, while property owners who paid for the paving claim that they should be allowed to haul the brick away. Suits were brought In court to test the matter, and finally the city decided upon apollcy of covering the old brick over and leaving them undis turbed, thus avoiding the bringing of the matter to a direct Issue.

It Is learned that overtures have been made to Iowa veterans of the war In the Philippines to officer regiments In the Chi nese reform army. Officers who are here shake their heads and say that they will not do anything of the sort unless some body puts up a guarantee of their pay, They generally believe the overtures were not authorized and that It Is done for some other purpose. State Medical Society. The annual meeting of the State Medical society has been Issued. It calls for meet Ings beginning In Des Moines May 18. There Is a bit of politics In the case, ai number of the counties and members in the eastern part of the state are making objections to the manner of doing business. At the last meeting it was decided that the county plan of organisation should be followed and an effort will be made to abandon this. BROOKS WINS IN PRIMARIES Real Test of Strength In Guberna torial Fight Reached In Lara mie County. CHEYENNE, Wyo., May 16. Special. Hon. B. B. Brooks, the Casper stockman, will undoubtedly head the next republican state ticket, and his friends predict that he will be elected governor by a handsome majority. It was about a standoff between Messrs. Brooks and Governor Chatterton In the race for the gubernatorial nomina tion up to last evening. Both sides ad mitted that their man would have to carry Laramie county to win out In the state convention, which will be held at Laramie next week. Mr. Brooks won here in a most decisive manner. In only one precinct in the city did Mr. Chatterton's friends win out In South Cheyenne he was strongest and won over Mr. Brooks by twelve ma jority, giving Mr. Chatterton five delegates in the county convention. The standing of the delegations from other counties In the state is not definitely known, but enough Is known to lndlcato that Mr. Brooks will be the choice of the convention. Mr. Chatterton has the Fre mont, Johnson, Big' Horn, Sweetwater and Carbon county delegations, a total of forty-five votes. It Is said he also has at least nine of the nineteen delegates from Uinta, which. If the report Is true, gives him fifty-four votes in the convention. Sixty' three are necessary to elect.

May lS.-Renorta gardlng the cloth business last week were divergent and contradictory, though pro ducers were somewhat better engaged. There was some erratic Improvement In the demand for China, but nevertheless the week was disappointing to most of the sellers. The weakness in the Uverpool market proved prejudicial to the trade In India shirtings, though - there were fair transactions In lighter fabrics. The nearer continental outlets were fairly busy. For Ea-VDt the inulrv was comparatively Rood. Inquiries for printing and finished goods for delivery in the winter resulted in oc casional orders. Heavy goods were dull. Yarns were somewhat healthier In tone and many users showed less hesitancy to operate man xor some time paei, spinners of medium and finer American counts maintaining their quotations steadily and keeping moderately well engaged.

BISHOPS TOPIC OF LIVE CONVERSATION Among tk Questions to Bo Taken ta Will Be Daaelagc, Card Playing- and Tkeater Golas;. LOS ANGELES. May 16. Today was wel comed by the delegates to the Methodist general conference as a day of rest, after a week of continuous sessions either of the conference or of the various commit tees. While enough visiting bishops and ministers volunteered their services to the pulpit supply committee to fill every pul pit in the city and suburban towns, at both morning and evening services the great body of delegates rested and talked over the events of yesterday's session of the by the following bishops were preached today: By 1L W. Warren, at Boyle Heights Methodist Episcopal church; Bishop D. 11. Moore, Centennial Methodist Episcopal church; Bishop F. W. Warne, Boyle Heights, evening; Bishop H. J. Vin cent, Vincent Methodist Episcopal church, where ceremonies were held; Bishop Earl Cranston, Blanchard's hall; Bishop Joseph C. Hartzcll, First Methodist Episcopal church, Pasadena. All other Methodist pulpits In the city and many of other denominations were oc cupied by visiting clergymen. At the First Methodist Episcopal church, this city, Dr. Joseph Berry led a large evangelistic mass meeting, and at Simpson's 'Auditorium Dr. Frank Mason North, George P. Eckman and J. W. Bashford made addresses to a large crowd. Harvard's pavilion was crowded to over flowing to llBten to a sermon by Dr. Waddy Moss, fraternal delegate from the Methodist church In England, and at the same place tonight there was a meeting of the Women's Home Missionary society. Bishops Sobjects of Discussion. The happenings at yesterday's session of the conference, when a vote was taken upon the retirement of five bishops, fur nished a live toplo of dlsousslon among the delegates today. The general opinion of the delegates that when the report Is given tomorrow morning it will show a decided majority In favor of the report of the episcopacy committee recommending- the retirement of Bishops Vincent, Walden, Andrews, Mallalleu and Foes. The prompt and determined manner in which the subject was put through the conference yesterday In the face of strong efforts to postpone definite action until Monday was much commented upon. There are a certain number of delegates, espe cially among the laymen, who are disposed to criticise the manner in which the five aged bishops were deprived of their high offices, but the leaders seem to feel re lieved that the most unpleasant duty of the conference has been performed, and that the way is now clear to take up other pressing and Important legislation. It is quite likely that the election of eight, possibly more, bishops will take place during the present week. The day has not been decided upon, but It Is gen erally believed that It will be Wednesday or Thursday. Other matters that will come before the conference this week are: Will Take t'p Amusements. Action of the Methodist church upon di vorce; consolidation of the various branches of the book concern; limiting- the tenure of pastors; placing the church on record In the matter. of amusements, vis.. dancing;, card playing, theatergoing, eta.. and many other matters that have been brought up In memorials from different conferences. The number of candidates for bishop grows dally, and no less than thirty-five names are now mentioned In this connection. Greek Letter Society Adjourns. ALIANCE, O., May 16.

Me finally prepared that wonderful Inter nal remedy known as Da. Pxiein's Pu-K Specific, which is put up in bottles, retail ing st all reliable drug stores for $1.00 each. This Internal remedy has been on the mar ket for the past ten years, and In all oi that time there has been but three cases where a positive cure has not been effected.

Because the 700 elevator constructors now on strike In this city for increased wages and the right to go out on sympathetic strike has been Ignored. It Is claimed by the Mnster Elevator Builders, the Master Board of Elevator Constructors' union Is contem plating an International strike. President Qompers and Vice President Duncan, of the American Federation of Labor wtll meet the national board of elevator men here on Tuesday when the question will be determined. The strike In this city Is against the combination of elevator builders which controls 75 per cent of the work in the world. The contention is on tho sym pathetic strike principle.
