The Upper Des Moinea.ftepublican, Mafch 18.1031 iff "I V. j *fhe Grouch. <We had a Twitlisrit Idea this morning so illuminating and revolutionary that we Mve usTced the editor to re- feurrect the old Grouch head (dusty and moldy with age and disuse) and PRAS it on to hundreds of bewildered readers who are 'trying to solve the grave iJTODlems of state. The idea is so simple, we wonder why nobody has thought of it,. The time Is so propitious that we hasten to enlighten you. The proposition Is simply that for the next two sessions of the legislature, members not only refrain from passing any new laws but put in their full time repealing a lot of those which are on statute books. Tills would give the learned solons plenty to do and at the same tune save us from the fate which is rapidly overtaking us. Only today, we saw a list of proposed legis lation which would actually make a ten year old school boy weep. Here is a group of so-called Intelligent men racking their poor tired brains for new laws, new prohibitions, new burdens to place on an already oppressed humanity, when they might be busily en- Bonnstetter Knows How To Reduce Taxes gaged in relieving the load manner suggested above. in «h« Begin with the most asslnlne laws now on the statute books. This would of course,' entail some argument and debate but at least, no matter which were selected, no actual harm could result. Prizes could be offered for the representative or senator whose "boob" law was picked as the first one for repeal. The spirit of rivalry would then grow tense. Other idiotic laws would be unearthed, discussed and finally repealed. At least, the anxious constituents at home, could go to sleep nights without the nightmare of impending legislation disturbing their comfortable nocturnal rest. What a Utopia. Stop! Can you?

The measure simply provided that "It shall be unlawful for any schoo board to employ or to authorize th employment of any person as teache who is related by consanqginity o affinity, within the third degree to any member of said board."

These are some of the common but painful warnings which become more serious and dangerous as long as you neglect your bad teeth and diseased gums.

Hotel March 31 Office Hours 9 to 4 Lady Attendant, partment of public instruction at onci indorsed the proposed law and supplied me with ample Information to show its necessity. My observation has been that nearly all of our sub-district school squabbles over the election of a director centers around his hiring a daughter or close relative to teach the school. Information from the department as well as reports from a large percentage of the county superintendents plainly indicated that I was correct in my conclusions. The department of public instruction also pointed out the fact that if we wish to enter upon an economy >rogram for our schools that one of .he first steps must be to eliminate the ondltion which allows a director to set the wages for an employed rela- ive. Of course, I felt that I was sponsoring a merltorius measure, but an xperienced legislator would never have introduced the bill because its passage is impossible for the following reasons: first, because many of the members are connected with schools and some of them are indulging in the very practice to which I object, and second, we have secretaries and pages whose dads are members of the legislature which condition is similar to that of our schools. This perhaps is another reason why we hired the twenty extra clerks. The bill above discussed was indefinitely postponed in the judiciary committee. Another measure that I sponsored Is H. F. 356, a senatorial redistrictlng plan. Friday morning this bill, together with three others, was taken up for consideration and in my judgment the most unfair plan, H. F. 11, was placed on the house calendar. My reason for believing this follows. The constitution says that the sena- /orlal districts shall be apportioned according to the population as shown by ,he last preceding census. It further states that no county can have more .han one senator and that no county can be divided to make a senatorial district. By reason of the distrlbu- lon of the population and the pro- isions of the constitution, it is impossible that all districts shall have tie same population but the aim liould be to secure as even a distrlbu- ion as possible. The poulation of the .ate is 2,470,939. Divided by 50 the number of senators and districts, /ould if equally divided give a sena- or 49,420 constituents. There are even counties with a population greater than 49,420 and are therefore ach entitled to a senator. The population of the seven counties 634,422. Subtracting this number om the population of the state leaves 836,517 to be divided by 43, the num- er of remaining districts, which gives 2,710, the number districts would ave if the population could be equal- distributed. It is not my purpose to discredit the uthors of House Files 11, 64, and 171 ut the "only way possible to point out le virtues of my bill which Is H. F. 6, is to compare it with the other 11s. Comparisons are as follows: MWVW'tWiiiW FREE Tire Inspection Week take chances on weak or worn tires. Know their cou- dition.

The answer is "politics." It appears to me ;hat if we go to the trouble of redistricting that the thing uppermost in our mind should be to give the people of the state as nearly as possible tthein proportionate share of representation and that we should entirely disregard the desires of our state poli- _ tlcians. j This is the time when we arrange our school program for the ensuing year. Many of the members of the legislature are also members of school boards. Most of them say that with the cooperation of their fellow board members, they hope to cut operating expenses ten per cent. I am going home this week end and see if we too cannot make a ten per cent cut. If all the civic and political organizations of the state would adopt and carry out a ten per cent cut program, the people of Iowa would have the shortest, surest and best road to "Tax Reduction." Sincerely, A. H. Bonnstet- Recollections of an Old Timer (By C. B. Hutchins). Des Moines, March 16. —I hope the' Upper Des Moines-Republican and its readers will excuse a little personal history. It is 62 years ago today since I first landed in Algona in company of my father, mother and two sisters. We started from our old home in Clayton county on the afternoon of the 9th of March, stopping the first night with an uncle, my father's brother, who lived in the southwest part of Monona township, Clayton county. That winter I taught the school in the so-called Glass grove district, and boarded at my uncles. There had been a heavy snow that winter, bu£ ( in the eastern part of the state it had melted to such an extent that there was no sleighing and oi course, we came part of the way, as will be seen, In a, prairie schooner. The second night we stayed at Calmar, which was then, so far as western Iowa was concerned, the western terminus of the Chicago & Milwaukee railway. The third night we stayed at New Hampton, the fourth night at Rockford, the fifth night, which was Saturday night, we stayed at Clear Lake and over Sunday. As we came west we found more and more snow, and there was no good wheeling after we left Rockford. The going was so difficult, that about four miles east of Clear Lake the team tired out and could pul the wagon no further. Father drove into a farm yard, left the wagon anc borrowed a long sled to take us into Clear Lake. There was no box on the sled, just a board lying on the beams of the sled On such a conveyance we rode into the town of Clear Lake on Saturday March 13, 1869. It was a real wintei day, clear and bright but cold. My mind often reverts to our journey and a mental picture of the trip ending for the time being at Clear Lake. My father, mother and my two sisters, one just under ten years and the younger just past seven and I, twenty. Sunday with Thayer Lumber's team, he came out with us prospecting, and afterwards moved to Algona, where he resided for a good many years, I drove back, left the sled and brought the wagon to Clear Lake. Father secured a sled and transferred the wagon box and load to it and Monday morning we started, coming by way of Forest City and Buffalo Grove, where we stayed all night. I do not remember what kind of a house it was, but I do remember that the snow was so badly drifted around it that we had to go down quite an incline to enter the door. From the Grove we struck out across the prairie, not a house for twenty miles, until we struck the settlement, two or three miles north of the present town of Wesley. It was a regular winter day, cold but sunshiny. For LOANS On all forms security Special loan milch cows. See or plan for purchasing write C. B. LABAEEE Algona Phone 55 Iowa First door north Iowa State Bank 40-43 several days after our arrival there was but little or no thawing of the snow. On Sunday, March 28th, I with a friend rode horseback out to. Sod Town, in what is now Lotts Creek township to visit the Wikins, whom we knew" ? in Clayton county. I never before or since ever saw so much water on the ground as there was that day. I returned home in the evening alone. The snow on the ice on the river lay undisturbed. The next morning the river was nearly half a mile wide where the Blackford bridge and grade is. The winds had so drifted the snow during the winter that the drifts, for a time acted as a dam for the water, but finally at most or all such places the water broke through and dropped into the river, at the same time and caused the river to rise more quickly, I believe, than it ever has at any time since. The next quickest rise was, I believe, the fore part of September, 1869. It began raining Friday noon, the 4th, and rained steadily for 36 hours. A wash boiler sitting out in the open, was nearly filled. At that time there were no grades across the river bottom, nor across any of the smaller streams to amount to much, and but very little damage was caused by the high water but made it very inconvient for traveling east and west when the river and bottom had to be crossed. One of the quickest rises in the river and the one that did the most damage was in the spring of 1888. There were heavy snows that winter, and it was thawing in the spring and there came a heavy rain, causing the river to rise very quickly and do a large amount of damage. Twenty-seven bridges were reported washed out in Kossuth county. One thing is quite certain and that is, we shall never have such floods again as we used to have. The reason is plain. Then, in the spring or at other times the sloughs would be full of water, oftentimes from the fall rains, and the melting of snows or a heavy rainfall would reach the river in full volume quickly. Now, the sloughs, being mostly drained, it is very seldom, if ever, that a slough can be filled by rain or melting snow, and the drains begin carrying off the water, at once gradually preventing such floods as we formerly had. To my mind remarkable climatic changes have taken place since I became an lowan. In seventy-five years there has never been another such a winter as this has been.
