Far nam Street. Preliminary steps towsrds securing a free bridge between Council Bluffs and Omaha were taken at a meeting cf the Joint com mittee from the two cities last night In the rooms of the Council Bluffs Commercial club.. If the enthusiasm of the members of the committee counts for anything and the project meeta with the support which It Is believed It will on both sides of' the river, a free bridge across the Missouri river seems assured. Tho committee organized by' selecting Henry H. Van Brunt of Council Bluffs ae tas chairman and F. D. Wead of Omaha as secretary- Present at the meeting were H. H. Haldrlge. F. O. Wead and C. M. Wllhclm of Omaha and H. H. Van Brunt, Joe W. Smith, Frank F. Everest. A. C. Keller and W. C. Boyer of Council Bluffs. V. F. Bixter and E. A. Benson, the other two Omaha members of the committee, wsra unable to be present. The following committees were appointed: On probable cost of bridge, W. C. Boyer, F. E. Everest, E. A. Benson and F. D. Wead; on right-of-way, A. C. Keller, Joe W. Smith. H. H. Baldrlge and C. M. Wll helm; on promotion (Council Bluffs), H. H. Van Brunt, F. F. Everest. W. C. Boyer, A. C. Keller and Joe W. Smith. Necessarily much of the discussion last night was Informal and of a preliminary character. ' The Omaha members of the committee said that the sentiment tn their city and Poug'as county generally was In avor of the proposition and they felt cer tain, that bonds for the construction of a free bridge would carry on their side ot the river. Mr, Van Brunt wae aa equally optimistic as the .Omaha members. He said that everybody-he had spoken with about 'the proposition appeared to be In favor of It and aa far as Council Bluffs was concerned a great majority undoubtedly would vote for the bonds. He believed the same would tie true of the farmers within a radius of several miles of Council Bluffs. As to tha people In the eastern part of the county, he wauld not at thla time express any opinion. Frank Everest expressed the opinion that at least TS per cent of the people in the city would vote for the bonds, as would the farmers three ' miles out or' the boundaries of Garner township. Mr. Ever-' est believed that the proposition to Issue bonds for Pottawattamie's share of the cost of construction of the bridge would carry. Tha committee appointed to secure an estimate of the probable cost of a bridge euoh aa Is contemplated will secure figures from bridge engineers and pthera and re port back to the joint committee at Its next meeting. The members of the com mittee generally favor locating the west ern end of the bridge on Farnam street, but, of course this Is a matter which will depend on ircuinstricea and later develop ments. ' - Tha Council Bluffs committee on promo tion is appointed for the purpose of con ferring with the members of the Board of County Supervisors and ascertaining their views, an the . project and their opinions as to how the proposition would be re ceived In ihelr respective communities. Cofonel yv. F. Baker, the Council Bluffs member of. the ctmnty board was stated to be quite enthusiastic over the project and would lend the committee all the as sistance In his power. It was stated during the discussion that Pottawattamie county's share of the cost of tha proposed bridge would probably not exceed tlUO.000 or SI 26,000 at the most, ss Douglaa county would be expected to pay about three-fourths of the cost. The committee adjourned to meet at noon Tuesday, June 8, at the rooms of the Commercial club In Omaha, when the project will be furrher discussed and plans outlined over the luncheon table. - JUNIORS PLT IT OVER SENIORS Attach Their Pennant to Pinnacle of tho Broadway Church. The annual rivalry between the senior and Junior classes of the high school as to which can fly its pennant from the highest and moat conspicuous point In the city Is now to tile fore. The Juniors got a start on the seniors Thursday night by flaunting their pennant from the belfry of the Broad way Methodist church, but a watchful pa trolman detected them. Officer Phillbrook, as he was patrolling Broadway shortly after midnight Thursday heard voices In the belfry of the church and looking up ward say a light flashing there. After some trouble he succeeded In pushing open one of the church doors on the north side and cautiously ascended the long flight of Steps to the belfry, where he cornered the adventurous young students. The boys nad entered the church during choir practice and had concealed themselves until the singers departed. If they had not remained so long In the belfry they wotld not have attracted the attention of the policemen. Officer Phillbrook. remembering that he had once been a boy, after herding them down stairs permitted them to go home. The officer, however, overlooked the pen nant and although somewhat bedraggled by tha rain it was still flying proudly from its letty vantage point when discovered by some of the seniors on their way to school. It is now up to the seniors to outdo the Juniors, and their pennant will probablv he found flying from the top of one of the 1V feet high electric light towers some bright morning.

OPEN METHOD IS MUCH EASTER Ilog Catcher Dons a Protectlre Outfit Made of Heavy Leather to Keep Dogs from Biting Chunks Oat' ot Him. The National Construction company, which is constr-ucting'the Mud creek sewer, has abandoned the working shield by which they have been driving , the tunnel under Monroe street. ' They made use of this de vice for several hundred feet, but the progress was slow. .Since abandoning the shield they have doubled the amount of sewer actually constructed In a day. The work l advancing tha shield waa the slowest part of Its use. The only object of the shield was to protect the men against. caving of the tunnel.. It is planned to try the experiment and already the shield Is cemented in and left In the walla of the sewer. If the project fails It ts proposed to construct an air lock and use compressed air. With the shield the average construc tion was three feet dally. With the open tunnel, nine or ten feet can b laid, but the element of danger la greater. The soil encountered Is better than In the lower part of the tunnel. The tunnel is so deep un der the surface that it is thought no harm will result from the heavy rains. The rain will have some effect on the N street gulch sewer work, but the construc tion has advanced pretty well since the compressed air was used and better soli will soon be reached. The bad soil previously encountered was due to some extent to the breaking of a water main at that point a year ago. The Intersection waa practically torn out.' Eukovsky a Wise Man.

May 16. (Special.) That the grain dealers of Iowa are in a con spiracy to prevent competition and control prices la the sensational charge made by the supreme cojrt of Iowa In an opinion handed down in a case wherein the Farm ers' Elevator company of Gowrle, a co operative Institution, Is upheld in refusing to open its books to Richard M. Funck, whom the court brands as the "puppet of tlie conspiracy." According to the opinion Richard M. Funck purchastd stock in the Farmers' Elevator company and then demanded to see the bocks of the company. Thla waa refused and he commenced mandamus pro- i ceedlngs to compel the company to disclose its hooks to him. The lower court sus tained his contention. An upiieal was taken and the supreme court reverses (he case. Baying that It is very apparent from the oiuru.a that rur.ck was one of evera! conspirators determined to Injure the busi ness of the farmers' company and had purchased the stock purposely to get Into tlie company's books. While under ordinary Interpretation of the law a stockholder has the right lo sea the company s books, the supreme court says that Whpie, as In 'this case, it is ap parent that the stockholder is a part of a conspiracy to ruin 'the business the or dinary interpretation may be set aside to preserve the best interests of the com pany. The court points out that the evi dence shows that so-called independent grain dealers, banded together under the name of a state organization, have con ducted a boycott against the co-operative elevator at Gowrie by ascertaining to whom the co-operative shipped its grain and then refusing to ship to such terminal dealers unless they discontinue business relations with the co-operative. In thla manner, the court says, a boycott waa directed against the Gowrie elevator and holds the' evidence sufficient to show that Funck se cured his slock In the Farmers' Elevator company through the Instigation rf the in dependents to find out from the books the names of lti consignees, which It, for self protection, was keeping secret from tbs independents. The case is overruled and Funck'a plea of rights In equity turned coldly down with the scathing denunciation that he ia "a puppet of a conpiracy working by un lawful means toward an unlawful end." necks of several dozen South Omaha 'dogs.
