TESTING THE NEW ALARM ,
The Tire Bell Kept Ringing All the
THE SM-OON INJUNCTIONS.
Detective Vnnnlcp Is Acquitted A
Buclilon Until null Narrow KB-
cape at Blniiawn Selling
A M or I ( in uo .lumper.
About a month ago Denuty Sheriff
Clattcrbuck arrested S. E. IJurdickon the
charge of disposing of mortgaged prop
erty. It was claimed that Ktisscll < fe Co. ,
of Silver City , had n mortgage on Hur-
dick's horses and his crops , and that
Hurdick sold the property and skipped.
After the arrest Hurdick was placed in
jail at Carson , but succeeded in breaking
out. Since then the olllcers have had
thuir eyes open for him , and yesterday
Deputy Sheriir Hooker , of Carson , got
track ot him , and after a hot chase cap
tured him. Hurdick is a jrood runner and
bounded over barbed wire fences with
the greatest of ease , but was at last run
down , but not until several shots had
been lired to shake his ner\es. Ho was
brought to this city and lodged in the re
volving jail , from which he will not es
cape ho readily. Hurdick has been in
this aort of scrape several times before ,
but has always before this got out of
them. 1'our instances arc recalled , one
nbout seven j ears ago , when ho was ar
rested for disposing of mortgaged prop
erty , gave bail and disappeared. Abofit
three years ago ho was arrested on a
similar charge , but the matter was set
tled. Two years ago J. W. Kodcfer
caused his arrest on a similar charge , but
this also was settled. His friends arc .said
to have tired in helping him out , and will
now let him help himself if he can.
Testing the Fire Alarm.
The tiic bell was riniring all of yester
day. There were more lire alarms turned
in than on any day in tha history of
Council Bluffs , and all of them false ones.
This was the result of the testing of the
new Richmond lire and police alarm.
Chief Temploton , of the lire department ,
went the rounds and turned in the vari
ous boxes , and the police calls. The
aldermen were stationed at the several
department houses. Aldermen Metcalf
and Hammer were at No. 1 and No. 'J ,
Alderman Wells at No. 4 , Aldermen
Keller and Danfnrth at No. 3. Mayor
( Jronewpg was In the city marshal's of
fice. where the police calls came in.
The test was very satisfactory. Nearly
every box came in exactly riglit. There
was an error in the bending o box 11 , and
box 18 came in with nine straight .strokes ,
instead of one and then eight. The er
rors were slight anil were few , and the
officials seemed well satisfied.
Thcro has been some talk about the
system not being an non-interfering one.
When the Gamawcll and the Richmond
were contending for the contract the
Gamowoll claimed to have n non-inter
fering .system , and pressed this point as
an advantage over the Richmond , but
the committee on examining into the
matter found that there was no such
thing as a strictly non-interfering system
in 110 anywhere. If two different
alarms were sent in at exactly the same
second , they would interfere by any of
the systems m use , but it would not hap
pen within the range of probabilities that
such a close coincidence should occur.
One would be an instant quicker or
slownr than the other.
The test yesterday was an informal
one. The city can now , if the test is
deemed thus far fcatjsfactory , accept the
system on the conditions of the contract.
Hy these conditions the city is to pay ? . " > 00
within sixty days. Then in six months
the second payment is to bn made , and
the balance to bo paid in a year. The
company in the meantime is under $3,000
bonus as a guarantee that the system
gives satisfaction for two years. These
bonds are to be signed by residents of
this county , and although they are not
filed yet , must bo filed before any money
is paid by the city. In other words the
city has ft guarantee covering the system
or two years , and has ono year to try the
ystcm before it makes its final settle-
iiont for it.
The Saloon Injunction * .
The notices in the new injunction cases
tgainst the saloons cause no little stir.
The notices are all to the saloons not in
cluded in the previous batch. They arc
called upon to appear tor a hearing on
he 4th of Juno in the district court.
I'hcs'o cases are brought before Judge
'arson , Judge Thornoll having had the
other cases. The suits have been com
menced in the name of a private citizen ,
Instead of the state , and this citi/en is A.
Overtoil. This difference in the form of
the action may cause new questions to
arise. It is said that tno purpose in thus
bringing the suits , was to avoid certain
complications arising from bringing of
suits in the name of the state. In these
latter cases it has to be bhowu that the
county attorney either refuses or
neglects to prosecute the suits.
Then a private eiti/.cn can bring
action in the name of the state. The
county attorney , Col. Daily , has not been
mked to commence proceedings , and has
been wholly ignored in the matter. The
suits are private ones , so the question of
his neglect or refusal will not enter into
the matter. These now cases are to bo
fought as earnestly and shrewdly as pos
sible , but there scorns to bo little clmnro
for the defendonts in the district courts.
Their only hopes , beyond thnt of tempo
rary delay , seems in the federal court ,
which has not rendered its opinion yet.
It is said that some of those who wern
proviouslyonjoined have been selling liq
uorn , and that they will soon bo served
with notices to appear and show cause
why they should not bo lined for con
tempt. It is daily expected that such violators
lators of the injunctions will be brought
before the bar.

The IJotecUvo Free.
The trial of Vaunico for obtaining
money under false pretenses came to a
close yesterday. In the course of the
trial it appeared that Vannico had been
employed by the Russell manufacturing
company to shadow one of its traveling
men named Young , who was suspected
of playing poker on the road. Mr. Har
ris , the manager of the company's busi
ness hero , says that the investigation re
sulted in a complete vindication of Mr.
Young , it apnoaring that some malicious
person , desiring to make trouble for Mr.
Young , having written an anonymous
letter making the charge. Mr. Young
was found to bo free from the vice of
poker playing , and is still iu the employ
of thn company , and fully trusted by
The jury was out butn short time and
brought in a verdict acquitting Vannice.
The young man's mother , who has been
a close attendant upon the trial , was
overjoyed with the result.
