over into the deep ditch and the car
overturned. Dudley Manrose -and
Hiss Garwood, two of the members
of the auto party, were the only ones
tc suffer severe injuries as Mr. Man

his forehead from one temple to the
other adn his eye was also injured

the broken glass of the windshield.
Miss Garwood suffered a laceration
of some six inches long on the left
leg and was also badly bruised. The
other three occupants of the car
were only badly shaken up and EUf
fered no other damage.
The residents of the vicinity of the
accident and passing auto parties
joined in rescuing the injured par

DOUBT SUICIDE OF
Contention Still Strong; that Mrs.
George Lutz Wts Murdered
Instead of Suicide Act.
The publication of the theory, by
the papers over the state that Mrs.
George Lutz of Louisville came to
her death by suicide rather than be
ing murdered, is rot given much
credence by the greater part of the
people of Louisville so state the rel
atives of the dead wo: :an, who wpre
cut there Sunday to look over the
The relatives interviewed Dr.
Wormian, who was called in the case
when the body of Mrs. Lutz was
found lying in the room at her home
and he is still of the opinion that it
was not lye that caused the death,
sc the members of the family state-,
rather was the liquid used one that
contained morphine or cpium is the
opinion of the physirian. This to
gether with the fact that Mrs. Lutz
on her deathbed and for the period
that elapsed from the time she was
found by her husband, until her
death, asserted that the injuries had
been inflicted by a large man after
a long struggle, makes the relatives
and close friends believe that it was
the act of some party rather than
In the stories thi.e have been re
ported by the state papers relative
to a quarrel between the husband
and wife on the morning of the day
of the tragedy, the relatives are
strong in their denial of this fact
and state that the two have been
n.ost agreeable and no apparent cause
of any differences can be found or
no evidence that there was a quar
rel of any kind between them on the
d;iy of the unfortunate occurence.
In the capture of the man New
horter Saturday at Manhattan, Kan
sas, will be settled whether or not
he is the man supposed to have been
seen in Louisville the day preceding
the assault on Mrs. Lutz, and the
parties wLo had claimed to have seen
a man answering his description at
that place, will be taken to Lincoln
to face the man when he is brought
back from -Kansas.
The man Newhorter has denied
having been in Louisville and stated
that he had beat his way to Ashland
and thence to Beatrice where he was
sought by the officers and escaped on
a train of the John Robinson circus,
getting as far as Manhattan when
caught. He also denied any part in
an alleged assault case in Lincoln.
The report of Dr. J. J. Kcegan.
who performed the autopsy on the
body of Mrs. Lutz. states that the in
dications were that the poisoning
pointed to oxalic acid which might
have been contained in silver polish
and also that there was evidence of
hemmorhage of the stomach as well
as the lack of signs of any bruises
on the body that might come from a
struggle of the nature claimed by
OBITUARY OF N. S. PIATT
Nathan S. Piatt was born at Co
lumbus, Indiana, May 5, 1S41, and
grew to manhood in that locality
and was married there in I860 to
Malissa Hill. To them eight child
ren were born of whom four grew
to manhood and womanhood. The
wife and mother died in 1872 and
Mr. Piatt was married the second
time to Katherine Campbell in 1S73.
The family came to Mills county,
la., in 1890. He made his home in
Glenwood for the greater part of the
time until 1914 when the wife de
parted this life and since that time
he has made his home here with his
granddaughter, Mrs. Pearl Reed. He
is survived by one son, George A.
Piatt, and twenty grandchildren and
forty-four great grandchildren.
The funeral was held yesterday at
Glenwood and conducted by Rev.
Thompson of the Christian church
of that city and the burial had in
the family lot at Glenwood ceme
tery. Mr. and Mrs. Israel Pearlman and
son, William, of Omaha, came
down this afternoon and spent a few
hours visiting with their many old
time friends. Mr. Pearlman has been
very poorly for the past few months
and expects to leave in a few days
with Mrs. Pearlman for Colorado.
J. H. Ruga, William Seike and
Martin Schafer of Elmwood were
here yesterday afternoon for a few
hours where they were looking after
some matters at the court house.
LEGISLATION UP. FOR ACTION IS
LARGELY CONFINED TO
There w;is peace and quietude;
present at the session of the city
legislators last evening and the bus-'
iness of the council was transacted
in a record breaking time. j
The first communication received
was from R. W. Clement, agent of
the Burlington, and enclosing a com
munication from E. M. Westervelt
in which the Burlington department
head asked that the city make a de
posit of $2.f00 to cover the cost of
the construction of the ninety-six
feet of storm sewer across the right
of way of the company. On motion
this was placed on file.
Engineer Group in charge of the
city street work, presented a com
munication suggesting that the city
use the subway as a temporary open
ing for the sewer and which would
not cost over $550 and would do very
well until a more permanent sewer
was decided on. On motion this was
adopted and steps ordered to make
an outlet for the sewer at that point.
A number of the residents in the
south part of the city asked for the
extension of the water mains to their
property and this was referred to
the fire and water committee for ac
tion. The board of health, through Dr.
P. J. Flynn, reported that an exam
ination had been made of the water
from a well in the south part of the
city by the state department and
the water found unfit for drinking
unless it was first boiled. The city
clerk was authorized to notify the
property owner to have the well
In regard to the matter of charges
for the use of the city fire truck and
the services of the firemen outside
of the city limits, the fire and water
committee stated that a charge of
S4S had been made to Paul Roberts
for use of the truck at Cedar Creek
and that Mr. Roberts had been un
able to get the others interested in
the proposition to contribute, and so
the committee recommended that the
sum of $13 for the services of the
lire-men and the gas used in mak
ing the trip be charged to Mr. Rob
erts and which was so ordered.
Chairman McMaken of the parks
i.Tiri improvement committee report
ed that hi3 committee had secured a
jri'-c of $33 on the furniture in the
police judge's office and this was ac
cepted by the council. This commit
tee also reported that a series of
band concerts each Wednesday eve
r.ir.g at Garfield park had been ar
ranged for and that these would run
until otherwise ordered. The con
cert? would cost 5 SO as the baud was
compelled to hire two additional men
for the use in the programs.
The ordinance creating the office
of city weighmaster and the use of
a city scale was then read and on
motion was passed.
The first partial estimate of the
work in the Main street paving dis
trict in the sum of J3.35S.S8 was
r"ad and on the recommendation of
the engineer the payment of this
sum to the contractor, Bert Coleman,
Mavor Johnson suggested that
there wotild probably be some of the
granite block left on the Main street
paving and sewering job and he
thought that it would be a fine idea
to have these taken out to the new
sewer project on Washington aven
ue and used there. This was the sen
timent of the greater part of the
council and on motion of Bestor the
plans were ordered changed to this
effect so as to permit bidding with
this object in view.
Mayor Johnson also desired to use
part of the old concrete curbing to
fix a bad place on Avenue A. on Win
tersteen hill and a part was also to
be sent out to 10th and D. street to
make a fill in the hollow there.
Councilman McMaken suggested that
these blocks be fixed with concrete
to make a good job of it and the sug
gestion will be acted upon.
There was some argument on the
matter of the bidders on the electro
lier system not furnishing a sample
of the post to be used but the rep
resentative of the company pfesent
agreed to have one here in a few
days and the matter laid over for the
present at least.
The following claims were allow

close the council adjourned:
