A Policeman and His Prison

A Confidence Man Gulls a
Granger Out of $235.
There was qnite a breeza kicked up
on llth street Tuesday by a cou
ple of colored nun who hairfrom Red
Oak , Iowa. It sppesra that the/ went
into the restaurant kept by Mr. J. H.
Travis. 20.8 llth street and ordered
iheir suppers , which they ate and then
one of the men , named Dixmore ,
sauntered toward the door in a digni-
Bed manner , calculated to impress
the beholder that his cndit was good
for an indefinite number of niealf.
Mrs. Travis requested him to pay for
the suppers btfore leaving , but ho re <
ferred her to Mr. Mason for
the liquidation of her c'aims
Upon beiDg told that ho bad no
business to order hia meals without
having the money to pay for tha
same , and that he would have to pay
-the bill some way , he responded with
decided emphasis , "yon get it ! "
Mrs. Travis followed him to Iho
door still insisting upon pay
ment when he suddenly drew
a pitt 1 from his overcoat pocked and
levelled it at her head. Very much
frightened nt this Mrs. Travis re
treated and called loudl > forasshtEiice ,

InSnpingPoliccmonBlack andFord up
on the spot in short order. The tvro
men ran in among some boxes
alongside of the building followed by
the officers who tcok them to bo bur
glars. Dixmore was captured and his
companion jumped over tha fence
followed by a shot from Ford's re
volver , which was meant to hit hiir- .
Dixmoro was landed in jail and the
fugitive chased to the river , where he
in some way eluded his pursuers and
escaped. In the police court this
morning the prisoner plead guilty to
drawing a deadly weapon , and was or
dered to pay $8 60 fine and costs.
BATTLING BEHiyD THE BARS.
tjAbout midnight Tuesday Officer
fid. Gorman arrested Mike Galilean ,
on 12th street , and conducted him to
the cty ; jail where he was about to
lock him up , when Galligan objected
to being put into the cell because there
was a colored man In lhereDixmore ) .
His objection was not considered
good and some unpleasantness ensued.
In fact a bloody battle took place then
and there. How it began we are una
ble to learn , ss yet , as both Gorman
Gilligan are badly used up. Mike i >
a fighter of no small weight , and Ed. is
a hard man to handle too. At first it
is reported Gilltgau had the advantage
and he certainly had the officer down
so as to kick him in the face but Gor
man finally got on top and what ho
left of his antagonist was unrecogniza
bio. The fbor was swimming inblocd
which had to ba aclu > lly moppd up
and Dr. Leisenringthe city physician ,
was called in to sew up two serious
gashes on the back of Galligin's
head. He was yesterday morning
unabla to leave his cell and
was suffering considerable pain. The
officer was also in the house still , and
hence it was impossible to get at the
details of thn encounter , which aras
long and stoutly fought , the big stove
in the center of the corridor being
knocked down in.the course ofho
affair , but fortunately there was no
fire in it or else the court house wonld
have gone to a moral certainty. Tha
result is a lesson to future prisoners
not to tackle officers unless they ex
pect to pay tbo penalty en the spot.
SKIPPED "WITH THE EUEKELS.
Warrants hive been sworn out in
police court for the arrest of W. H.
Richards , ono of ( ho foremen of con
strue * ion of water-wotkc , under Con
tractor Rutheriord. He is chargad
with obtaining money under false
pretenses , the mode of procedure be
ing to iasuo lime checks to "fiat"
laborers , and then take them himself
to merchants and busiresi
men about the cily to get
them cached. They ranged in amount
from $10 to § 15 , and were disposed of
at a small discount. As the laborers
were all paid iu cash , Contractor Ruth
erford was a little surprised when the
bogus checks were presented for pay
ment Monday , and investigation re
sulted in the discovery of the nbovo
facts. The police failed to find Rich
ards , who is said to have departed
with his wife night before last.
A CONriDESCE GAME.
Abaldand successful confidence game
was , Tuesday evening , played on John
Polke , a youtg farmer from Chelsea ,
Tama county , Iowa , who was en route
to Shelton , this state , to see his
brother. Polke is net over 23. or 25
years of age , but he ought to have
known better than to do as he did.
He was waiting at the depot to take
the G o'clock emigrant train out and
was sitting'ubout whrn he wasapprrach
ed by a man who had in some manner
struck up a pissing acquaintance with
him. The Inter represented that
be had a lot of heavy boxes of
freight to take with him on the train
aid that he '
hadn't monpy enonuh to
pay the charge' . He had a check ,
however , and would give Polke that
as security for the § 235 he required.
He pointed to his goois , a lot of train
boxes lying on the platform , and asked
Polko to watch them until his return.
When the train came in Mr. Bertram
Eansen went to the granger and told
iiim he had better get aboard. Polke
told htm he was watting for a friend
and watching his goods , pointing at
the sarao time to the painted boxes.
"How much money did you
et your friend have , " said Mr.
Hanssn. "Two hundred and thirty-
five dollart , " was the reply. "Well ,
on will never seeyojir money agsin , "
was the consoling remark , and te ex *
Gained tbe situation to the astonished
'firmer , who vas nearly crazy when he
bund that he hnd been gulled. He
said one. third of the money was. his
Rnd the other two-thirds his brother'a.
Se stayed ever yesterday in the city ,
soping to get on tha track of the vil-
ain , but that'ls a hopeless undertak
ing , of course.
The case of Fox and Barber va ;
Paxton and McShane
In the matter of the contested leg
islative election case , the parties met
at the office of Justice Will H. Eiley ,
at 9 o'clock yesterday. Justice
Riley appeared aa notary oa behalf of
Messrs. Fox and Barber and Homer
Stull , esq. , for Messrs. Paxton and
McShane. C. A. Baldwin , erq , and
Walter Bennett appeared for the con-
tettanis and Hon. George W. Doane
for the coateatees , MoJsre. Barber
and MuShauo ere present , with a
dozen or so of interested parties as
Mr. Baldwin urged a postpone
meut until to-day , on the ground
that up to this time the examining
court had no authoiity to require the
attendance ol witnesses acd that none
of the uimceses' for the .contestants
Mr. Doane insisted that the court
was compelled by the statutes to com
mence theexaiuinatlonyesterday under
the notice served upon his clients and
that no testimong could bo taken
under sftid notice unlees the examina
tion was begun yesterday. The court
took the latter view of the matter and
gave the contestants until 2 o'clock to
produce their witnesses pnd papers.
Mr. Baldwin asked that an order be
issued by the court upon the county
clerk to deliver to H. T. Leavitt the
"poll boo'tcs , taily sheets and other pa
pers In his charge , and another upon
Mr. Laavitt to produce the same in
Mr. Doano objected to this aa being
virtually an order on the county clerk
to bring the papers into court which
the law expressly forbftdb. Mr.
Lsavitt , belnjj the deputy clerk , was
in the eyes of the law one and the
same person. He suggested that
some suitable and unobjectionable
person be chosen in place of Mr.
Leavitt to perform the desired duty.
On serving the notice it was dis
covered that Mr. Manchester wan ab
sent from the city and Mr. Leavitt ,
oltvred to allow the documents .o go
before the court mliia-own posses
sion. A compromise had agreed on
Mr. John T. Bell as the custodian , and
Mr. Leavitt and Mr. Be'l ' together
broucht them into court about three
o'clock yesterday , up to which
time no further proceeding s had been

upon our soil were enabled to enjoy
ones more the romantic freedom of
camp life and take part in the routine
