Ollicor O'llrion has arrested a fellow
named Tedrow , whom he books as a gen
uine vagrant. This fellow was wanted
hero months ago on suspicion of being
concerned in tlio robbery of two men
named McDonald , who live in Omaha.
They lost $100 while in a saloon shaking
dice , and Tedrow disappeared about that
time. If thty can bo found now , he will
probably bo prosecuted on this charge , as
well as vagrancy.
With three men claiming the oflico of
coroner the question will arise as to who
uliall get pay for holding the inquest
Saturday. Mr. Fnnl claims pay for in
vestigating the case , although ho found
it not necessary to hold an inquest. Mr.
Council held an inquest and so claims
pay. Dr. licllingcr , the other claimant
of the olllca , attended the man in his last
moments' .so doubtless has a bill. The
county board will doubtless stand by its
own record nnd recognize Faul as the
coroner , and will doubtless reject all

Aeoliluut or Suicide ?
There has been but .little light thrown
upon the- death , of Alex Graber , which
occurred at Metropolitan hotel'aboiit
1 o'olock Saturday. About 5 o'clock
Friday afternoon ho was at Foster's drug
store nnd secured a small bottle of mor
phine , He had not been in good health
of late , and had got the morphine on the
undcrstandinc that ho frequently used it
for relief from pain from rheumatism.
Ho ate his supper ns usual , and retired to
his room about 10 o'clock. He was not
scon until about noon on Saturday when
the chamber maid finding the room still
occupied called the attention of the pro
prietor , Mr. Lnngmado. The door was
forced open and he was found lying on
the bed in an unconscious and dying con
dition. Dr. Hcllingcr was called in and
administered remedies , but it was too
late. In a short time death came. A
small bottle of laudanum was found but
there was nothing to indicate whether he
had taken nn overdose by accident or
with suicidal Intent. Tlio friends of the
deceased disclaim belief in the suicidal
theory , and deem it must have been acci
dental. Coroner Faul called at the hotel ,
and on learning tlio particulars of the
death , concluded that it was not neces
sary to hold nn inquest. D. M. Cou
ncil , who still claims to bo the
coroner of the county , concluded ho
would hold nn inmicst , and summoned
nsjtuorsJ. W , Hosier , Captain Walters
nnd Policeman Towns. They found n
verdict to the ofl'ect that the deceased
came to his death by an overdose of laud
anum , administered by his own hand ,
which threw but little light on the ques
tion whether it was suicidal or not.
Mr. Grabor has lived hero for many
years. Ho was about 0.1 years old , and
is said to liavn n wife and one daughter ,
but their residence is not known , ho hav
ing separated from his wife years ago.
Ho was one of the pioneers of this state.
He was also a veteran of the Mexican
war. In the early times ho was engaged
in stage coaching , and for years was
agent lor one of the largest companies ,
and used to run a smaller line of his own.
For many years bast ho hqs been in the
employ of the Union Pacific railway ns
check clerk , most of the time nt tlio
transfer , and for a time at Columbus ,
Neb. Ho was n member of No. 40 ,
Knights of Pythias , and that order has
taken charge of tlio remains. Tlio funeral
will bo held oil' Tuesday , probably , the
exact time not being fixed upon , ns it is
desirable that tlio address of the wife and
daughter bo first learned , if possible.
The Constliifi Carnival.
The thaw which has started in so en
thusiastically has caused some doubts to
arise about the advisability of going
ahead with thl arrangements for a
coasting carnival , but in the hope that
the weather may change , and with the
assurance that it will tsike several days of
warm weather to do away with alf the
snow , it has been decided to go ahead.
The arrangements will therefore go on ,
until it becomes evident that there is no
chance for the proposed fun.
There was a meeting held Saturday
night. It being learned that Air. F. A ( .
Gault could not- serve as president , Air.
AI. B. Brown was chosen to thus serve ,
and n special soliciting committee was
chosen , consisting of William Alaloney ,
AV. K. Vaughan , B. T. Connor and J. C.
Bixby. John Tonipleton was chosen as
chairman of the committee on illumina
tions. About $35 was raiscil on the spot
for incidental expenses , and there will bo
no trouble in securing whatever else is
necessary to make it a success. Another
meeting of the committees will bo held
this evening , and to-morrow evening
there will bo a general meeting.
The following card has been issued :

AVOCA , Iowa , Fob. 0. Business very
quiet. Our little city apparently is los
ing some of her cnturpriso and settling
down to the slow , even jog of some of
her sister towns. Have reference to our
telephone exchange , which was closed
Fcbrurary 1 , after having been a fixture
for two years past ( and one that would
bespeak enterprise. ) The Telephone
company could not continue the ex
change , but have established a toll oflico ,
witli W. J. Maxwell , who will attend to
the wants of the people in that line.

The Kays-Karat club , organized three
winters asro , who hold their meetings on
the seventh (7th ( ) day of the week , ami
deal only in the harmless games of poker
and seven up , is in a tlom'ishing condi
tion. At their last regular , Jauntily ill.
at their room in the city building ( fur
nished by the city , rent free ) , the attend
ance was so largo that some of the old
est members were crowded out , so to
speak , and went home , much to the sur
prise of wives who had become accus
tomed to the seventh day absence of
their llego lord , Lest there might a
wrong opinion bo formed of
tills social club would say that
among the charter members are found
throe of pur councilinon marshal , night
watch , city recorder , saving nothing of
our business men , all professions being
represented doctors , lawyers , mer
chants and chief ( of our fire department ) .
Therefore , with the number of city olli-
cials , and one of our justices of the peace ,
who favors the meetings with his digni
fied presence , the club takes high rank.

Alissonu VALLKV , Ieb. 7. The town
has been all "torn up" during the past
week over some wln ky ca. p ? , ami thg
end is not yet. A man by the name of
Wildrick has been keeping a restaurant ,
and , as it has been proven , sold intoxicat
ing liquors , on Sixth street , for the last
few months. John Henry , another
saloon keeper , had Wildrick arrested ,
and ho was fined $50 by the mayor. Ho
then swore out a search warrant against
Henry , and the minions of the law
swooped down and seized about 100 gal
lens of liquors of various kinds , Wil
drick was again arrested and taken be
fore Squire Ilorbrook , who lined him $50
and costs. Thn Hon. Cyrus Armdt ap
peared for the defendant , and lion. L.
IJrown for the plaintiff. Wildriek failed
to pay the line , and the justice said ho
would not issue a warrant of commit
ment for a short time if he remained out
of the business , as Wildrick had agreed .
to quit. Immediately another warrant
was put in the ollicer's hands to arrest
Wildrick for keeping a nuisance.
During the past week the city council
has been busy nrraugine and passing
ordinances for the town which will become
a city of the second class after the 1st
of March. The city will bo divided into
three wards. Caucuses will bo held
during this week to put In nomination
aldermen for the year.
Thus far there are no less than six or
seven probable- candidates mentioned for
mayor at the coming election. Messrs.
Leo Grow , L. Brown. F. AI. Deuce ,
Cyrus Arndt , J. S. Wattles and J. S.
Dowell are among the number.
The question ot water works will no
doubt bo oneof the principal topics of
tlio new council for consideration , and it
is hoped they will take immediate action
in the matter.
Some of the citizens and business men
are very much dissatisfied with tlio pres
ent system of street lamps and arc in
favor of electric lights , believing they
would bo far cheaper in the long run
than the present system of gasoline.

charge of forging the name of Doniinick
Gross to u note of ? 0 and selling it to

about Avoca for over a year past , and
