bridges In his district, prompted the dis
cussion. In his report Colonel Baker gave
figures to show that, as he claimed, he
had saved the county $609 In ' comparison
with th prices paid the bride contractor.
He stated he had built the bridges while
the contractor was engaged In the east end
of the county. Ther was some question
as to the piling used In the bridges built
by Colonel Baker and he took umbrage at
som of tha remarks made by the chair-

left undeoided after the explosion from

theft of two overcoats on different days
from the store of the John Beno company

tiary terms, ha cannot be convicted as an

Officers and Oltlsena Ran Hint Down
. After a Chase.
Wllllara Rolph, under Indictment for
breaking Into a drug etora on West Broad
way about a year ago, made a desperate
attempt yesterday morning to get away
from Deputy Sheriff Qronsweg, who was
taking him to ths county Jail. Hla liberty,
however, was only short-lived, as he waa
soon recaptured while hiding under tha
back porch of a house on South Seventh
Rolph, who ha been out on a ball bond
furnished by his father and other rela
tive, waa at the courthouse yesterday
morning In anticipation that his case might
be called for trial. As there had been some
difficulty In secur!r,g his rCTenoe at his
former trial on another change arising out
of the same burglary. County Attorney
Hess and Judge Wheeler decided that It
would be safest to place Rolph under lock
and key, and accordingly a bench warrant
was Issued for his arrest
. Deputy Sheriff Groneweg took Rolph Into
custody and had taken hlnvs far as the
county Jail door when Rolph made a break
away. The officer was obliged to let loose
of RicJph for a minute while he started to
open the Jail door and Rolph eeleed the
opportunity to run. He dashed down the
alley between Willow and Fifth avenues,
and aa he turned onto Sixth street. Deputy
Sheriff Groneweg took two shots at him
with his revolver: Detective Callaghan
happened to cr.mo to the courthouse and
Qroneweg called to him to try to head off
Rolph by going around on Fifth avenue.
Callaghan Jumped Into a buggy which was
standing in front of the courthouse and
started In pursuit, while Groneweg took up
tho chase down the alley.
Groneweg caught sight of his man behind
a high board fence at the Barstsvw residenoa
on Sixth street and fired another shot,
which caused Rolph to start (It on the run
again. By this time the shooting bad at
tracted a big crowd and a number of men
took part In the pursuit of the fleelnc man.
As Rolph was speeding west on Fifth ave
nue he caught sight of Defective Callaghan
In the buggy, and turning .down Seventh
street disappeared In the yard of one of the
residences. At first it waa thought Rolph
was hidden In the barn, and while the offi
cers were searching It some men In tha
crowd discovered him hiding under the rear
porch. Rolph refused to budgo until the
deputy sheriff pushed tha muxxle of his re
volver olose to him and threatened to shoot.
Rolh then crawled out, pouring torrents
of abuae and profanity at the officer until
Groneweg wa forced to give hlin a rap
over the head with the butt of his revolver.
He was then taken back to tha Jail and
locked u(k
Two indictments were returned against
Rolph In connection with the robbing of the
drug store. On the charge of larceny from
a building he waa acquitted, as the state
failed to secure the necessary witnesses to
prove hi possession of th stolen goods.
When the time came for his trial on th
second charge, which waa for breaking and
entering the store, ha skipped to Omaha,
where he wa later arrested and brought
I back, but released on bonds furnished by
I tils fath.p mnA nth.. MmKM n th. hmll.
His trial had bean set for Thursday, but.
waa continued, aa Rolph for the fourth time
changed attorney and tha latter was not
prepared to go to trial. Rolph will be placed
on trial Monday.

It develops that Mayor Macrae was some
what premature In naming the members
of the new Fir and Ponce commission
at the meeting of the city council last
Monday night. Tha bill did not become a
law by publication until Thursday, a fact
which was known to the mayor's ap
pointees and this arcounted for their not
holding any meeting to organise since be
ing appointed.
The mayor will now hare to make th
appointments over again, which It Is under
stood he will do at the meeting of the
city council next Monday night. Thor
will, It Is said, be no change In th ap
pointments. There are soma who are Inclined to sus
pect that tha naming of the three com
missioners last Monday night before the
bill had become a law was th result
of a well planned scheme to take the ap
pointment of the rhlef of th fir depart
ment out of the hands of the city council.
There Is some opposition to th re-appointment
of Chief Jones and It Is rumored
that the new Fire and Police commission
has another man In view for the posi
tion. Had the council Monday night re
elected Chief Jones, "the Fire snd Police
commission would have been Under the
necessity of removing him for cause before
it could have appointed anyone In his
place. But for the appointment by the
mayor of the Fire and Police commission,
tha city council. It Is said, undoubtedly
would have re-elected Chief Jones.

This Week.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, April ".-(Special Tele
gram. The house today passed th senate
bill requiring express offices that receive
liquor to be delivered cash on delivery to
pay the mulct tax; a senate bill giving
county superintendents the power to en
force th compulsory scnool attendance
law, a house bill providing that a candi
date's expenses must be filed with the
county auditor after th campaign.
The Erlckson bill to tax corporations
and requiring them to report regularly to
the secretary of stats was defeated In
the house, and then a vote to reconsider
carried. Th bill waa debated at some
length in tho senate. When It reached the
house gum shoe work was done against It.
Tcter of Marlon explained the bill and no
one talked against It. but the votes were
almost solidly against It. When the mat
ter was furthsr explained th house Or
dered a reconsideration and then adjomed,
which gives th friends of the bill till to
morrow to work on those who voted against
Trustees for Educational Institutions.
At the Joint convention of th house and
senate tonight th following were elected
as trustees and regents of the state edu
cational Institutions:
Repents of Btat University Third dis

of the Normal, who succeeds C. II. Mo
Nlder of Mason City.
Date of Adjournment Cneertaln.
Date of adjournment sine die of the Iowa
legislature Is still in the air. In the house
today when the senate resolution to ad
journ tomorrow noon was messaged over
Dow of Franklin tried to get an Immediate
consideration. Van Houten objected and
asked that the resolution go over till to
morrow under rule 84, which provides that
no resolution shall be considered on the
same day on whloh It is received. Dow
then made a motion that the rule be sus
pended and demanded a roll call. The vote
was 88 to M and the house refused to sus
pend the rule. During th disousslon It
developed that th work of enrolling the
bill that have been passed during the
last few day will be such that an adjourn
ment tomorrow noon Is absolutely out of
the question. Th law provides that all
the bills shall be correctly enrolled and
signed by the speaker of the house and
president of th senate in the presence ef
the two bouses and are then sent to th
governor. It will be Tuesday before the
bills are all enrolled. It Is the intention
now In the house to call the resolution
up tomorrow morning. Tb results of this
afternoon's session will then be known and
the house will know better how much work
there 1 to do. It can then vote intelli
gently on th resolution and probably will
amend the time to some time next week.
It Is quite possible, too, that tha house
will delay the matter of adjournment till
the senate fixes up soma of th bills. Th
senate, according to the claims of the
house, wants to "butcher" the anti-pass
bill and kill the bill requiring life insur
ance companies to maka an annual ac
counting of dividends to the policy holders.
The house Is not disposed to "stand for
Hons rroeeedlars.
The house today defeated a bill to allow
state and savings banks and trust com
panies to act as guardians, executors and
trustees. They passed the Mil allowing
convict labor to be used in the car of th
state's property and th bill fixing a uni
form salary for th deputy state -veterinary
surgeons and concurred In the senate
amendments to the bills fixing th salary
of th state librarian, and th deputy state
officers and governor's secretary.
Tetor's Bill Killed.
Th bill by Teter providing that female
appearing on th stag must wear skirts
at least four inches below the knaes was
killed In the house today. When it was
Introduced yesterday, after the first read
ing. Van Houten of Taylor objected, and
the bill waa rejected. Later Lowery was
allowed to introduce a bill and th house

"STy baby was shout nine months
old when she had rash on her face and
feet. Her feet seemed to irritate her
most, especially
nights. They would
cause her to be
broken of her rest,
and sometimes she
would cry until she
was tired out. I had
always used Cuti
cura Soap myself,
and had heard of so
many cure by the)
Cuticura Remedies
that I thought X
would rive them A
trial. The improve
mentwas noticeable
In a few hours, and before I had used
one box of the Cuticura Ointment her feet
were well and have never troubled bee
sine. I also used it to remove what
is kttown as "cradle cap" from her
bead, and it worked like a charm as it
Cleansed and healed the scalp at the same
time. Mow I keep Cuticura Ointment
on hand in case of any little rash or
insect bites, as it takes out the inflam
mation at once. Perhaps this may be
tha means of helping other suffering
babies. Mrs. Battie Currier, Thomas
