Another "Whiskey Case.
In the district court yesterday the case
of the state against Mike Nolan was
heard. It was one of the liquor cnsc :
and on its merits , it was for contempt in
not obeying the injunction of the court ,
Ho was fined $500. His attorney then
offered to show that his client had acted
in good faith though ho had Bold liquoi
since his onjoinmunt. Nolan had quit
business , moved Into a place near hit
house , and having a little liquor on
hand ho had sold it. Nolan supposed
the injunction applied to himself while
in the building ho ilrst occupied , and
that it was not binding after his removal
On this showing the judge remitted the
line for one year , to bo effective so lonj
us the defendant fold no liquor. Tin
question arises as to whether the judgi
can entirely suspend the penalty 01
whether it will stand as a hen iignlns
Nolan's property. The court intimatei
that n pardon might bo necessary t <

Fine For Contempt.
Yesterday morning the evidence was
taken in the case of George L. Smith ,
charged with contempt under the pro
hibition law. The defendant is the
well-known keeper of the Phinnlx sa
loon , No. o03 Broadway. An Injunction
was served on the first of last April.
The place was closed by the proprietors
at once , but It seems that they con
cluded a little later that It was nn April
fool job , for they began serving up
drinks to the thirsty , just as if no in
junction existed. Then came the charge
f contempt. Smith was not present In
jourt. save by his attorney , and it Is re
ported that ho has gone across the river
intil ho can arrange his utTnitv more to
Ills liking. The evidence was taken
arofully , and a number of prominent
itizens were brought into court to tes-
ify to the character of the business
wing done in the Pluunlx , and the con
tention which Smith had with the
: > laco. After hearing these witnesses
Fudge Deemer gave the defense a
'banco to bo heard , but the only claim
made by Mr. Haldene , the attorney for
Smith , was that the court had no jurls-
iliction in the cans , it being already in
the federal court. As in other cases
Judge Deemor overruled the motion to
dismiss , and then announced the 11011-
ulty , the first given hero , fixing Smith's
'ino at $1,000 , and declaring that in do-
'uult of payment he should lie in jail for
300 days. In making this announce
ment the judge remarked that it ap
eared that the defendant had no re-
pect for the order of the court , and no
'ear of the law. The orders of the
curt must bo obeyed and the law
must bo enforced. Any other course
> vns dangerous , as it led to anarchy.
\fter the decision Mr. Haldeno re
quested the court to Hx the amount of
bond required in case they wanted to
take the case up on a writ of cortiorari.
There seemed to bo some doubts about
ho power of the court to let Smith give
aonds under these proceedings , and
line was taken to look up the matter.
This is the first case in which a line
'or contempt has been imposed upon a
Council Bluffs saloon keeper. It was
commented upon quite freely on the
streets , and many deemed the penalty
severe. Others thought it all right , as
icro had been abundant chance given
o have the business stopped without
liny such penalty being incurred. The
prediction is quiso freely made that the
end draws near , and that ere many days
there will not bo an open saloon in the
city. It does not follow , however , that
o intoxicating liquors will bo sold
'icre. ' The present law , so long as it is
.n force , is looked upon as a terror , for
under its provisions property as well as
MM-bonul liberty are jeopardized , and
ew will care to take the chances of an
: > pen defiance of it.

Killed By the Cam.
Dennis Gilmore was found dead about
half a mile from Loveland station yes
terday morning. Ho was in this city
the previous day and it is supposed ho
* , ook the Sioux City train for homo. The
.ilaco where ho was found is only a
short distance from his house , and the
probability Is that in attempting to get
off the train ho was drawn under the
wheels and killed. His head was badly
crushed and the body otherwise mutil
ated. A brother of the deceased , Pat
Gilmore , resides at Honey Creek Lake.
Coroner Faul hold -inquest yester
day. The jury consisted of Martin
Williams. G. B. Larison , and J. B.
Hutchison , all of Loveland. From the
evidence taken it appears that Gilmore
left Council Bluffs for his homo in
Loveland on Wednesday evening's
train. M. H. French , a section boss ,
who was nlbO going to Loveland , saw
him in the smoking car , and was talk
ing with him. Gilmore was quite
drunk. On reaching Loveland , French ,
who had in the meantime gone into an
other car , called the attention of Con
ductor Ilumlin to the fact that Gilmore
ought to get off. The conductor went
to the scat where Gilmore was and saw
to his getting off. Gilmore was under
the Inllucnco of drink , and the con
ductor and the newsboy helped him
off , the conductor warning him to bo
careful not to fail. It appears that after
the train had left Loveland , Gllmore ,
instead of walking towards his homo ,
about half a mile down the track , walked
up the track , the opposite direction , a
distance of about three-quarters of a
mile. Ho must have got sleepy and lain
down beside the track , for the North
western train coming along struck the
top of his head , killing him instantly.
The verdict of the jury was that ho
came to his death "by being struck by
a train on the Chicago & Northwestern
railway , and wo do notattach any blame
to baid company.
Gilmore has been well known in the
farming community for years. He was
an excellent man in most respects , but
has had a fondness for drink which haa
brought other troubles upon him. Ho
was divorced from his wife , and has

Funrrnl of Mr. Irons.
The funeral of the Into Edward Irons
occurred yesterday afternoon and was
argely attended. The suddenness of
the death , the sad ovontcomlng without
i moment's warning , caused the services
to bo peculiarly impressive. The friends
gathered at the residence on North Second
end street at 2 o'clock , and from there
proceeded to the Baptist church , of
vhlch organization Mr. Irons was for so
eng a prominent member. The pastor ,
! lov. Dr. Cooley , conducted the services.
Ho paid a merited tribute to the char
acter of the deceased , and drew some
oiling lesions for the benefit of the llv-
ng , adding words of tender comfort to
, hose upon whom this blow has fallen
so heavily. The remains wore con
voyed to the cemetery , followed by the
friends and by the Odd Fellowsof which
irgnnizatlon Mr. Irons was also a mem
ber. The pall bearers wore : J. T.
Stevenson , A. D. Foster , Robert Green ,
[ lenry Jackson , G. W. Wyckoff and
Llobert Mullis. There were many and
varied fiornl tributes , and in every do-
ail of the arrangements there was man-
test the respect and esteem in which
, ho one thus suddenly called hence was
icld in this community , as well as in
the family and the church.
Judge Aylesworth did not find a very
toll docket when ho opened police court
yesterday morning. There was one
onesome-looking prisoner , who gave
ills name as Thomas McAndrow , booked
under the double-headed charge of hav
ing too much whisky and too little
money. Thomas explained himself as
jest ho could. Ho had money , $0 or $7 ,
sut g9ftoo full , went to sleep in some
railway yard , and when ho woke up his
money was gone , Ho started up town
; o find some hotel , when a kindly hearted
[ jollccman teed care of him. The judge
lined him $8.10 , which was about $9
more than ho had. To relieve his finan-
2al ! distress the judge gave him a job
lo work for the city at $1.60 a day and
board until the deficiency was made up.
Ho didn't seem to appreciate the favor.
R. Dorvin , a colored gentleman , was
irrcstcd for assault. Ho claimed that
tie had been working for a man , who
refused to pay him , and when he got
mad and tried to force a collection lie
was ordered out , and so the fuss began.
The prosecutor concluded to drop the
case and the colored man was given his

A Fair Crowd.
There was a crowded house at the
entertainment given last night in con
nection with the Catholic fair. A very
pleasing and rather novel programme
was presented. The Omaha Mandolin
and Guitar club gave several numbers ,
which called forth enthusiastic applause
and encores. Miss Keating gave a
pleasing piano solo. Miss Corner gave
a recitation which would have done
srcdit to any professional. Mr. H. V.
Buckley gave a solo which was de
servedly encored. Miss Morkel , al
ways a favorite , sang a charming solo ,
and in response to the demand of the
enthusiasm favored the audience with a
pleasing little ballad. To-night there
will bo an entirely different entertain
ment. Saturday afternoon "Jack , the
Giant Killer , " will bo repeated.

Can't Remember Swallow'ing a Girl.
New York Sun : For some time C. S.
Hasscnpllug , a well known Pnterson
man of advanced years , has been suf
fering from a severe pain in one of his
fingers. The doctor thought it was a
felon , but one morning there came from
the linger about half of a largo liairin. |
How the hairpin got into the linger is a
mystery. Mr. Hessonpllug says that he
ho has heard of people swallowing
things with necdlcsin them and having
the needles come out of different and
distant parts of the body after the lapse
of years , but although he has a pretty
good memory , he says that he is unable
to remember that ho ever swallowed a
girl who wore hairpins.

STARK MAD !
A Case that Baffles Medical -
ical Science. ?
"Yes , sir.he . iy as mad as a March harc"said onegon- -j
tleman to another , as they were standing on Broadway - \
way yesterday afternoon. '
The objeot of this remark had just passed up the
street , and ever on the alert for news , the reporter
followed him. He was a middle aged man , well dress
ed , and apparently a gentleman of the well to do
class. In his hand ho held a memorandum book , and
as he scanned the signs as he passed them he mutter
ed to himself , "Four Hundred and One ! Four Hun
dred and One ! Four Hundred and One. Yes , that's
the number wife said ; Four Hundred and OneBroad
way. ' ' And as he came opposite to Harkness Bro's
store , the look of anxiety passed from his face and he
broke into a laugh. As he passed through the door
he said to himself , "I may be stark mad crazy as a
loon , but I am not crazy enough to pay double prices
for inferior goods , when I can get the best of Hark
ness Bros. , for less money.
The reporter thought he was not a candidate for
the Insane Asylum.
