This action followed ft spirited debate
and was carried by one voto over the

of the finance commutes did not alter.
Those who championed this favor to

to be derived from sewing thread was
inconsequential and that to be consistent
In attempting to- lower the cost of living1
the senate should not quibble. Looking
up the estimates they found that the
estimated revenue to bo derived was
about t 5,000 a year. This, they figured,
was a small amount to worry about, and
on the free list cotton thread went, while
committee members objected strenuously.
All amendments to tho agricultural

was reported to have been the cause of
the explosion. Fifty men. Including the
crew and twenty machinists, who wen
making repairs, preparatory to tho Mo
hawk's departure tomorrow for Huxpam,
Mexico, were on board. A helper was de
clared to have carried a lighted candle
into the hold below the fire room, while
searching for a washer he had dropped.
The candle Is believed to have caused
the combustion of gases generated In tho
hold.
Tha explosion was heard for many miles.
A flash of flame 800 feet high shot into
the air, followed by a volcano of debris
and the Mohawk began Immediately to
settle aft, while fire boats, wrecking
tugs and other harbor craft hurried to
the scene from all directions.
A score of men who were blown over
board were rescued unhurt from thA
water. Others clung to stanchions and
rails or huddled In the bow, whence they
were dragged to safety on boats.
Shortly after o'clock tonight the Are
was under control and the crew returned
on board and began pumping the vessel
out. The stern was completely under
water, but It is believed the steamer can
be got Into dry dock for repairs.

PHARMACISTJS PUNISHED
Iowa Board Takes Certificate from
Waterloo Man.
PERSISTENTLY SOLD LIQUOR
noard Determined to rnntsh Dro
siata Who Peralat In Violations
of the LrTf Get Evidence
In Drldge Case.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Ia., June 2S.-(Speolal
Telegram.) The State Board of Phar
macy today for the first time In many
years revoked the certificate of a regis
tered pharmacist because of his per
sistency In selling liquors. This was L.
O. Helber of Waterloo, who had been ad
judged guilty of contempt of court In a
liquor case. The pharmacy commission
has started out to put an end to promis
cuous selling of liquors by druggists.
Evidence In Bridge Cases.
Henry E. Sampson of tbe attorney gen
eral's office and Thomas M. McDonald,
state highway engineer, have gone to
Chicago for the purpose of gathering evi
dence In certain cement bridge patent
cases now pending. The legislature pro
vided that tho state should prosecute all
cases where it is believed bridge com
panies are wrongfully charging royalties
on patents. The cose now In the hands
of the attorney general Is that of Dan
B. Luten against W. B. Marsh, a Des
Moines contractor.
Geological Work In lawn.
The geological board met with the gov
ernor today. Prof. George F. Kay made
report and recommendations which were
approved. The areal and geological work
In Audubon and Shelby counties will be
continued by B. Shlmek. The work In
Lucas county will be .completed by Prof,
Kay, who will also do work In Adams
and Union. Geological work In Cass will
be commenced by J, E. Gow. The re
port on the field work In Taylor, Floyd,
Adair, Calhoun, Crawford and Clarke
counties Is now being prepared. B. W,
Beyer wlfl continue study of surface wa
ters. J. E. Carman will continue study
of surface deposits In northwestern Iowa.
James H. Lees will do work on the drain
age waters of the Missouri slope.
More Iiiike Drainage Cases.
The state executive council today took
up consideration of tho drainage ot
Goose lake In Kossuth county. This Is
the third lake case to be brought before
the state officials this week. Goose lake
got into court some years ago, but tha
right ot the state to do what it pleases
with the bed of tho lake has been estab
lished. The question Is whether to drain
it or preserve It.
Summer Schools and Pay.
Attendance at summer schools this year
will not add anything to the salaries ot
teachers under tho minimum wage law,
Most of the summer schools will be over
before the law takes effect and tbe board
of educational examiners decided that It
would not be possible to apply that part
of the law this year which permits add.
Ing three points to teachers' grades ftfr
wage purposes for attendance at summer
schools. The department has also just
ent out a circular containing the de
cision of the attorney general to the ef
feet that where a deputy county super
intendent Is appointed after July i It will

taking the lead in the effort to appre
hend the pair. It Is believed they have
not gone far. Meyer Is a piano repairer.
Circulars have been sent out wth de
scription ot the pair.
Savins to State.
A. considerable saving to the state Is
anticipated because of a new law which
puts upon any county from which an In
sane person Is sent to the state hospital
the sole burden of establishing tbe actual
residence of the patient If tho county
escapes responsibility tor the permanent
maintenance of such patient it Is up to
the county to ahow where the resldenoe
of the person actually is. In case the
county falls to do this it will have to
stand tha expense, except that It may
show tha Insane patient was not a resi
dent of tho county, which will mean that
the state will make him a state patient
But the law will leave It so that tho ac
tual residence of most of tha patients
will be established at a time when this
can easily be done; thus tho number of
state patients will be reduced. There are
about $00 state patients now at the hos
pitals.
Bnyina; Coal for the State.
Tho State Board of Control has lust
received offers for the sale of coal to
the state for institution purposes. The
Institutions use about 100,000 tons of coal
a year. Under tha law the board Is ab
solutely required to let the contracts at
each Institution to tha lowest bidders.
A demand has been made that the board
let the contracts to Iowa coal dealers
regardless of price, but this cannot very
well bo done. Nearly every year some
Illinois coal is purchased for the Insti
tutions.
Military Antoa Croaa Iorra.
Two groups ot military automobiles
are crossing Iowa. They are under tha
direction ot th Wisconsin military au
tboritles and hall from tha military

north this morning, consisting ot Colonel
R. P. Davidson ot Illinois and eleven
cadets. They travel In an automobile
equipped with rapid fire guns and a wire'
less outfit and keep up connection with
the other party each day.
Many Hlfflivrar Contests.

highway systems to settle, according to
H. C, Beard, a member of the commis
sion. He was In Des Moines last night
Today he will Investigate oontesU in
Ringgold and Decatur counties.
"It will be my first work of that kind,"

franchise granting the Alton & Southern
