HE REPLIES TO CRITICISM OF
HE SLEEPS ON TOP OF BOILER
Norfolk's Faithful City Water Engi
neer Puts In Twenty-four Hours a
Day at the Water Station and Keeps
. Pumps Up to Limit.
Engineer Gus Graul of the city wa
ter plant docs not take kindly to crit
icism directed against the manage
ment of the plant for alleged poor lire
I pressure. This criticism , ho maintains -
tains , Is made without a knowledge
of the facts. The poor pressure nt
the high school fire , ho says , has no
other explanation than the small four-
inch water mains used to carry water
in that part of the city.
Graul spends pretty nearly the entire -
tire twenty-four hours nt his post of
duty. Working , swearing , coaxing nt
the engines during the day and liter
ally sleeping on top of the big hollers
at night , Graul thinks ho renders ser
vice to the city that ought to bo paid
for ether than In constant abuse.
Visitors calling at what hour they
please will find the standpipe nearly
full and eighty pounds of water pres
sure and sixty pounds of steam pres
sure registered on the gauges. At
7:30 : p. m. the pumping engines are
stopped with the standpipe full. Be
fore the pumps are started in the
morning perhaps fifteen or twenty feet
of water may have been used from
the standpipo. These are conditions
that prevail any day and which , Graul
declares , existed on the morning of
the Sunday flre. Ho said that ho had
the pump working before the firemen
had reached the fire Sunday. He
sights the Edwards & Bradford fire as
example of the pressure afforded
where the mains are of the proper

The first objection to bo brought
forth against J. D. Sturgeon as nomi
nee for mayor was the opinion among
many that ho would be kept away from
homo too much to take care of the
work. Mr. Sturgeon announces , how
ever , that he will be In Norfolk alto
gether from now on , so that this objec
tion is done away with.

Senator Kittridgo In Sioux Falls a
short time ago and that Senator Kltt-

but his signature Is assured.
A representative of the Rldpath Ice-
ture bureau was In Norfolk yesterday
with a view of making arrangements
for another course of lectures similar
to the high school lecture course just

view of the unsettled condition of
school affairs at present the represen

effort to take the matter up at this
time but will visit the city at a later
date to present he question of another
program of lectures.
A carload of rice and two carloads
of fruit Jars were distributed from
Norfolk this week. They were sold
by S. F. Ersklne , ono of the promi
nent commercial travelers out of Nor
folk , and Norfolk's geographical loca
tion made It advisable for his whole
sale house to ship direct to Norfolk in
carload lots and then redistribute from
here. This is but an Illustration ,
many bellovo , of what could bo done
on a much larger scale from Norfolk.
It would require $100,000 it'Is said to

Junction politics are sadly twisted
and Junction mathematicians are
called on to figure out which party
holds the vantage point. Is Conductor
Pat Dolan , republican nominee for
Fourth ward councilman , a democrat ?
Did the democrats carry the Junction
republican caucus or did the repub
licans achieve a strategic victory by
nominating the most available demo
crat In the ward ? Hero lies material
for dally debates in the Junction
stores. The Junction democrats turned
their backs on their own caucus last
Tuesday and lot It go by default. The
Junction , too , Is a democratic strong
hold. The uptown politicians were
alarmed about the situation , however ,
nnd their frantic communications to
the south side resulted In a second
democratic caucus being called for to
night at Koerber's barber shop. De
termined to lev ) ( | . I'ot Dolan , the repub
lican notnliioo , wlH they nominate Pat
Dolan , the democrat , against him ? If
they do It will he a lively light for
Dolan means business and declares
that ho will glvo no quarter ,
An important damage suit brought
day. Mrs. Frye smes for $30,000 dam
county Is being followed with Interest
by Norfolk people familiar with the
details. The case Is now on trial In
the district court In Holt county , hav
ing been called for trial on last Mon
day. Mrs. Frey sues for $30,000 dam
ages based on the death of her hus
band alleged to have been caused by
the excessive use of Intoxicating liquor.
Frye previous to his death had pur
chased the saloon stock and unexplred
license of a saloon man at Atkinson.
His death occurred last fall. In suing
for $30,000 damages Mrs. Frye named
as defendants not only the saloon man
who had sold his business to her hus
band but also the various wholesale
dealers who had furnished him with
supplies. Service was made In Nor
folk on wholesale house agents as
wholesalers. Attorney Burt Mapes of
Norfolk is In attendance at the trial
as one of the attorneys for the defense.
The case Is bringing up many technical
legal points and may not be concluded
for several days. A suit resulting from
a saloon dealer drinking his own liquor
Is commented on as a strange case In
the court annals.
Evidences of the existence cither
of a spectral "bogy man" or of a ma
terialistic midnight prowler In Nor
folk continue to be offered In ways
disquieting to the peace of many Nor
folk families. The latest story comes
from North Ninth street. The visit of
the unwanted Intruder occurred last
Tuesday night before the stories of
other similar happenings had been
much afloat. Two Norfolk traveling
men make their homes In a double
house on North Ninth street. Tues
day evening both men being absent
their wives had another traveling
man's wife over to spend the night.
Toward midnight one of the women
was alarmed to hear a man apparent
ly stumbling about on the lower floor.
Her friends were equally frightened.
Fastening the door , barricading It with
a folding bed and then bracing their
barricade with other furniture , the
women waited In suspense , planning
the meanwhile for a possible escape.
After they had broken open a storm
window and were debating whether to
scream for help or to descend to the
ground by means of an Improvised lad
der of sheets , the uninvited visitor left
the house slamming the door behind
him. The door had a night lock and
locked when the man shut it. No
trace was left as to the Identity or
object ol th& night prowler. One ex
planation was that a drunken man
hhd In some way effected an entrance
to the house , at last leaving of his own
volition. The three women are still
positive that the prowler was "real"
and not a creation of the Imagination.
HOUSE DAMAGED BY FIRE.
Blaze Causes Loss of About $200 at
The homo of W. F. McComb at the

morning. The blaze originated in the
upper floor of the house , which Is a

progressed far over the rough roads.
The damage to the house and contents
will not reach $200 , fully covered by

E. A. BULLOCK SUGGESTS NEW SO-
CITY WANTS MAIN LINE TRAINS

pot , Offices and Trains.
"I will glvo $100 If the Northwest

senger depot , move their ofllcors' head
quarters up town and run main line

This is the way E. A. Bullock feels
about the depot situation and ho says
that ho has found many business men
In the city who will bo willing to con
tribute toward the same end.
"It makes little difference to Nor
folk , " says Mr. Bullock , "whether wo

The harness store of H. W. Winter
at 127 Norfolk avenue was robbed last
night by a midnight burglar who ef
fected an entrance to the store by a
rear window. Over a hundred dollars
worth of goods were stolen from the
store. Clues pointing to the possible
Identity of the burglar or burglars are
The first man to reach the Winter

to the store standing open and a rear

the store at 9:15 : o'clock last evening.
Foot prints embedded In the frozen
ground led to and from the window
and door. These foot prints apparent

store to South Second street , whore
a light wagon had driven up during
the night. The trail of the wagon led
south. The foot marks might have
been made by a young man with com
paratively small feet.

that wore stolen : Two saddles valued
at $50 and $ -15 each , three horse blan

Stock food manufacturers received
a rude thrust In the .senate. Senator
Epperson made a motion that the
state chenitat analyze all stock foods

The stock food manufacturers have
directed a fight against section 8 of
the pure food bill and the bitterness
resulting from this light has caused
much comment in Iho senate. The ac
