alleged alterations end erasures In the

erssfire; that the fee belonged to the county
and was not Included in the report of fees
filed by the clerk.
In the case of Saunders against DeVore
In an entry of June 15, 1906. it is charged
that the clerk taxed and collected a fee
for complete record therein In the sum of
$12. all of which appears In the report on
file In the case filed November 4, 19, and
It la charged that an erasure appears upon
the record of the court, thereby changing
the Item from $12 to $2, and that the clerk
failed to Include the collection In his ac
count of feea on file.
In an entry of July 7. 1905, in the case
of Loughlin against Ivll and others, tt is
charged that there appears to be several

ance and fee docket and that there was

and altered so that there now appeara to
he the amount of $22; that , in the same
cause the clerk recelvpd for a transcript
and complete record $29.M, no part of which
waa included In the clerk'a report 6f fees.
The books and papers pertaining . to the
action are retained in the custody of H. J.
Chambers, who was appointed by the court
to take charge of the office pending the
determination of the Investigation of the
chargea against Mr. Battey. The books
particularly Involved have bean taken from
their accustomed places and locked In the
large safe In tha office. No date has been,
set as yet for the hearing. When Mr.

hearing and Judge Wheeler is expected to
set U as soon as both parties can conveni
ently be prepared for it.

BOARD nHVIKWIX, AMESSMF.NT
Few rhanaea From the Flaw res of
Assessor Hardin.
Meeting as a hoard of equalization, the
city council lasf night completed the prelim
inary review of the assessment books of
City Assessor Hardin and adjourned to
Wednesday evening of next week at which
time those persona whose assessments have
been raised will be afforded an opportunity
to voice their objections.
But comparatively few changes have so
far been made In the assessment as reported
by Mr. Hardin. Tho largest Increase is in
the case of the C. Hafer Lumber company,
lta assessment being raised from $20,000 to
$30,000. The new Day A Hess building on
Pearl and Main streets was raised from
$7,000 to $9.0i, while the new building of
City Treasurer True at the corner of Broad
way and Eighth street was raised from
$7,000 to O0O. The assessment of the Clark
Implement company was increased to $11,000
from $7,000.
According to the showing made by the
First National bank, the city finds Itself
In the position of owing the bank something
Instead of collecting any taxes on its capital
stock. City Assessor Hardin placed an
assessment of $200,000 on the bank's capital
stock, and to offset this the bank claimed
to have the capital stock unvested in non
assessable government bonds to the amount
of $300,000, leaving a balance In favor of the
bank of $40,000. Counsel for the bank, how
ever, informed the board that it was "will
ing to pay a reasonable amount." Tho ques
tion of the exemption of the bank's capital
stock from assessment was referred to the
counity attorney.
Assessor Hardin's books show an increased
assessment of about $350,000 over last year.
There Is a loss of about $40,000 on moneys
and credits and about $75,000 on agricultural
Implement stocks, due to the disastrous
fires on Implement Row, so that The entire
amount of Increase this year Is on new
buildings. Real estate Is not assessed this
year, the assessment of the previous year
standing. New buildings erected during the
last year are assessed as personal property.
The total assessment for this year will be
In the neighborhood of $16,800,000.
Tho question of assessing the sugar stored
In the warehouses of this city Is still un
decided. Mr. Hardin expressed the belief
that about $45,000 worth of the sugar stored
here was subject to assessment.
The street railway company is assessed
at $490,000, the Citizens Qas and Electric
company at $182,460 and the City Water
Works company at $152,260. '
Under the new law any public officer or
taxpayer haa the privilege of complaining
of any assessment. He may ask to have
the assessment made either higher or lower.
In case the board declines to take the ac
tion desired by the complainant an appeal
can be taken to the district court.

Indian Creek to Be Dredged.
The city council, as a committee of the
whole, made a trip to the mouth of Indian
creek yesterday afternoon for the purpose
of ascertaining what dredging was needed
this year. The dredge hoat, which has
been stored on the bank of the creek, waa
found to be in serviceable condition. The
dredge Itself Is stored in the Clausen build
ing on Sixth street and Thirteenth avenue
and probably will require some repairs be
fore it can be placed In commission again.
While no action was taken by the com
mittee of the whole yesterday, It Is under
stood that the councllmen favor resuming
work on the creek as soon as possible.
There is a balance of something over $4,000
In the Indian creek fund and with the
additional money that can be secured from
the sewer fund the city. It is thought, will
have sufficient means with which to do
the work.
The committee concurred in the request
of property owners and residents on the
portion of South First street, east of Gra
ham avenue, that the name be changed to
Madison avenue, and the city solicitor was
Instructed to draw urt the necessary ordi
nance providing for the change of name.
The question of paving Madison avenue be
tween Capell and Iowa avenues was re
ferred to Councllmen Younkerman and
Morgan for them to make a recommenda
tion. In the matter of the opening of Eleventh
atreet, aa asked for by the Walker Manu
facturing company, an arrangement wa
reached whereby the opening of the alley
between the plants of the, Walker company
and the Alfalfa Meal company will provide
the relief dealred.
Several minor matters were considered by
the committee, which will report on them
at the meeting of the council next Monday
night. ,

It ia understood that the property owners

will ask that tha tracka of the atreet rail

where necessary. It Is expected the street
railway company will enter a protest
against thia proposed grade, as the es
tablishment of It will necessitate the re
laying of its t tacks for a considerable
distance.

(From a Stsff Correspondent.)
DKS MOINES. April 16. (Special.) Prac
tically all of the railroads that have made
reports to the executive council of Iowa,
and on which tho council will make the
assessment of the railroads, show a loss In
the grnps and net receipts over that of the
year before. The reports now reaching the
secretary of the executive council cover the
business done during tho tar ending De
cember 31, I'.ioT.
The gross earnings of the Great Western
are J.'.ono.cmo less than the year before, and
the net earnings nearly Sl.OoO.OOO less; the
gross earnings cf the Rock Island are 8375,
000 less than tho year before, and Its net
earnings over 12.000,000 less. The gross
earnings of the Wabash are $30,000 less and
its net earnings $70,000 less. The Dubuque
& Sioux City Is the only road thus far re
porting that ahows an Increase in Its gross
earnings. The increase amounts' to nearly
$500,000, but K net earnings are over $300,
000 less than the year before.
The reports thus far made do not cover
some of the largest roads. The North
western, Milwaukee, Burlington and Iowa
Central have not reported as yet, but It Is
expected that their business has suffered
the same as the rest.
The roads thus far reporting show the
following comparisons:
Gross Earnings. Net Earnings.

Last year the railroads reported an In
crease In earnings and were given a boost
In their assessment. This year It is pre
sumed that If there is an Increase it will
be small.
