While Door is Unlocked He Trys
to Make His Get Away
Yesterday was somewhat strenuous
day in the life of Earl Blunt, .the
young man who has been in jail here
for sometime past charged with bur
glarizing a freight car of the Missouri
Pacific railway and taking there
from a quantity of goods. He was
arraigned yesterday afternoon before
Judge Travis in district court and
the Information against him read to
him. He entered a plea of not guilty
to the charge and was remanded to
jail to await trial, a bond being fixed
for his appearance at the September
term of the court. A. N. Sullivan
as appointed by the court to defend
him and he conducted the prelimi
nary proceedings for the defense.
Blunt was not able to furnish bail
at that-time and 'was 'taken back
to jail by Sheriff Quinton to await
Along in the evening Blunt made
a desperate attempt to escape, this
being the second time he has gotten
away from the jail but he selected
a bad day for the essay. Sheriff Quin
ton had gone to the jail to look after
some of the other prisoners con
fined there, being accompanied by
Fatrick Egan. Mr. Egan remained
at the door while the sheriff entered
the jail, leaving the outer door un
fastened as he Intended to be in
there but a moment or so. Blunt
saw that the door was not locked and
quietly approached it and suddenly
made a rush for liberty. He took
Mr. Egan entirely by surprise and
dashed past him before he could
stop him. Blunt turned to the east
and dashed down the street toward
the Burlington tracks. He ran across
the tracks and in by the elevator at
the foot of Wintersteen hill, going
over the Burlington main line and
down Into the veed3 which line the

Mr. Egan giving the alarm and start

Quinto who discovered the attempt

pened and who hurriedly locked the
jail and gave race. The fleeing man
was not much In advance of the sher
iff and the posse which had quickly
taken up the pursuit and there was
small chance of his making a get
away. Blunt's object was unques
tionably to get into the woods which
line the river-for miles below the
city where he would have a secure
hiding place and where the probabil
ities of getting him without a long
and weary search would be remote.
However, owing to the promptness of
the pursuit and the thoroughness
with which he was rounded up and
surrounded, there was no chance of
his making good and ho was present
ly discovered hid in the underbrush
south of the elevator and along the
river bank. He was taken into cus
tody by the sheriff and marched back
to the call in the jail.
Blunt displayed a great deal of
wisdom in heading as he did for the
woods and underbrush south of the
city. Owing to his acquaintance here
and the number of friends which he
has scattered about, the officers
would have found the task of locat
ing him a mighty difficult one had
he gained the expected haven. There
is a very heavy undergrowth of brush
and weeds through the woods along
the river bank besides innumerable
caves which would afford some shel
ter to him if necessary and he could
have placed himself almost certainly
beyond the reach of the officers for
some time to come. Added to this he
might have secured a boat and hid
himself away upon the big Island
south of the city where there is an
almost impentrable jungle and where
he could have existed without trou
ble for many days. Had the escape
taken place in the night this Is prob
ably what would have occurred.

valuation of the state estimated at
nearly $411,000,000, includes rail
road property which Is assessed as
personal property. Of the estimated
total Increasing this year, amounting
to $12,000,000, only $267,985 is on
railroad property, and that was for
new lines completed during the year
The totals of the different classes of
property have not yet been made up
so It Is Impossible yet to ascertain
whether the greater part of the In

The fact that there i a large in
crease In the value of property In
the state as listed for assessment
causes the Democrats to point with
pride to the amendment made by the
last legislature for the election of
deputy county assessors or precinct
assessors Instead of having such of
ficers appointed by the county as
Fcssors. When this change was made
In the law It was predicted that pre
clnct assessors would naturally fav

them and the result would be a grad

of the state. I lie first year s ex

County assessors and county boards
still have power to review the work
of precinct assessors, but some con
tended that such reviewing officers
might grow tired of trying to keep
the assessment up and then a de
crease would be noted in the total
valuation of the state. That the state
Is growing In wealth all the time Is
some times given as a reason why
there should be an Increase In tho as
