THE WEEK AT DBS MOINES FOR A SINGLE BOARD OP CONTROL 15c 06c 50c lOc M. Z. Grove & Son. Uust Received Strong Effort Will Be Made to That End—Resume of the Week's Legislative Doings. Senator Healay, who assisted in the trial of the Russ-Lund cases In Algona a few week's ago, Editor Hinchon's republican nephew, is the most talked about man at the capitol. He drafted the report of the committee which investigated the state institutions, and it is justly considered one of the ablest and fairest public documents in the Iowa records. It presents all the facts without any personal criticisms, is splendid in tone and will have a great and lasting effect on state management. The contrast between this report and that of the Lambert committee on printing and binding at the last session should be a permanent object lesson. Senator Healey is York investigating now east in New the methods of tend only to the editorial duties. The Midland is in a very healthy condition financially, and will not suffer any from the change. On the other hand no man in Iowa could have been selected better equipped to make the state library what it should be. •*•-!-•+• Gov. Shaw found the state university with 057 students in the collegiate department for the first term this year as against 644 for the three terms last year. In all departments the present attendance is over 1,300 students. The Iowa university hires less teachers for the same number of students than any school of like grade in the United States, and the cost of education per pupil is less. TO TEY IT A TRIED TIME.

Senator Carney has gone to Wisconsin to see how this plan works there. In the house, Representative Merriam, who was also on the investigating committee, favors a supervisory board to represent the state with a separate board for each institution as at present. Between these two plans a dozen compromises are suggested. One of the difficulties the single board men are meeting with is upon the manner of selecting the board. The senate ways and means committee will undoubtedly report In favor of appointment by the governor, the senate to confirm. They think this will insure a better board than any other plan suggested. -S- -»- -5- In spite of the fact that a great many are opposed to the whole board of control idea, some plan is undoubtedly going to be tried. This is the opinion of men of all views. Still a vigorous fight will be made. The present trustee system costs less than the single board will, while centralizing the enormous patronage of all the Iowa institutions in the control of any three or five men is likely to breed troubles atleast equal to any chargeable to the present system. An examination into theNebras- ka institutions, which are under a single board, disclosed embezzlement in every one. It is possible that out of the 'discussion may come a reorganizing of the trustee system, each institution having its board as at present, tho governor to appoint an expert accountant to settle with the treasurer and secretary each year, and make such examination as is now made of banks and insurance companies by the state. This would be a modification of the Merriam idea. H- -T- -i- The Temple amendment will be adopted at this session without a fight probably. Its object is to prevent railway corporations from creating insurance companies, whose beneficiaries are compelled to give up their legal right to sue for damages if injured while in the employ of the company. •*--*-•*The Cheshire amendment will create a big fight again. It provides for taxing telegraphs, etc., according to their mileage in the state. That is, the total value of the Western Union, for instance, is divided by the total mileage. The value per mile determined, it is to be assessed accordingly. Senator Punk will undoubtedly again lead the opposition to this measure, He says it is manifestly unfair to take the ocean cables and eastern lines and put their value into lines in the west not worth one tenth as much, and tax them here. He says telegraph lines should be taxed according to their value in Iowa and not according to their value in New York. 'pels the husband to pay the attorney's fee. Ellsworth refused to pay and Col. Clarke sued for $5,000. At the first trial the jury gave him $2,600. Ellsworth appealed and the supreme court reversed the case. At tho second trial the jury gave Col. Clarke $3,000 and interest. This is again sent back. From the Capital's report of tho decision we clip the following paragraphs: The point on which the supreme court again remands the case Is that Involved in the hypothetical question, "Did the attorney devoteafullmonth's time to the divorce proceedings and to the client's interests therein outside of court?" The defendant offered, and attempted to show by the witnesses he introduced, that the time required by an attorney of fair qualification, ability and experience in the district court to perform the services which Clarke states that he rendered out of court, would not be more than four ^ays, but the court sustained an objection to the offer. In that, the supreme court thinks, it erred. The length of time spent by Clarke was prominent element of recovery, and Salome Soapine or Wonderine? They work like magic.

This seems likely to be defeated for a joint caucus was held last evening and the state printer and state binder were chosen for another term. Too many men in the legislature have had experience with competitive bidding on work when the quality is wholly determined by the honesty and willingness of the contractor. There are as many kinds of printing as there are of printers. The state will get just what it pays for, and letting a cheap contract means getting a grade of work that would disgrace a 99 cent store. Polk county let its work this year to a sweat shop office in St. Louis. Next year it ial said that it will divide the work among the Des Moines printers at regular rates. -*--*•-*Gov. Shaw is in Indianapolis to preside over the meeting of sound money men which convened yesterday. Last Thursday he met at Iowa City for the first time with the board of university regents, as did also State Superintendent Barrett. He took an active part in the work of the meeting and posted himself thoroughly on the needs and prospects of the school. The university board is the only one that the governor and state superintendent are members of. The agricultural college has requested that they be added to its board. -T- -i- -i- Johnson Brigham, editor of the Midland Monthly, has been appointed state librarian. The new code makes his position reasonably permanent. Formerly each new governor could name anew librarian, and the frequent changes have boon demoralizing to the service. Mr. Brigham vvill dispose of the business management of tho Midland Monthly to S.haw & Conaway, who have I been printing it and will hereafter at- as an _ while the value of his legal sef yices does not bear any fixed ratio to the length of time required to perform them, yet time is usually, if not always, an important consideration. The various legal questions which Clarke examined and the several papers which he drew, together with the facts Involved, were detailed by him at length, and a competent and experienced lawyer could readily form a reasonably accurate opinion as to the number of days which would be required to do what was done. The plaintiff very properly showed the time which he claimed to have been necessary to perform the work for which he seeks recovery, and the supremo court does not know of any rule of law which would prevent the defendant from showing that the work could have been done in less time than that for which tho plaintiff claims. If it be true that the preparatory work for which plaintiff seeks a recovery could have been thoroughly and well done in four days, the amount of his recovery should have been less than though 30 days had been required for the work. Discussing the point of the value of the services, irrespective of the length of time necessary to perform them, the court says: "The value to be determined is the reasonable value of the services in Hardin county, as fixed by the practice in that county. This does not mean that it is necessary to show what charges have been made in that county in cases like those in which the compensation in question was earned. It rarely happens that two contested cases involving not only different parties but different interests are so nearly alike that the compensation of attorneys should be precisely alike in one as in the other. But the value is to be determined with reference to practice in Hardin county, so far as it has established the value of such services as those in controversy."

FAEEWELIi, Bejjaii wltli Glorlami, JCiids With Black Trilby—Last Show by the Old Management, The opera house company will put the last show under its management on Friday evening, Jan. 28. It is McCabe & Young's Black Trilby. The Kansas City Times says: Not the best show in the world as was advertised, but beyond a doubt the best colored show that ever appeared before a Kansas City audience. McCabe and Young are well known to the theatre goers and there are but few who have not at some time seen their entertainment, and probably none who regret having done so. This year they have come out with an entire new line of entertainment, being the first attempt of colored artists in an operatic burlesque comedy. The company is composed of both ladies and gentlemen among whom are some very clever comedians and some very fine singers, especially Is this true of the ladies. The stage settings and costumes were very fine, and deserve special notice. The same bill will be presented tho balance of the week.
