Ijnst Day of Uio Tournament.
The fourth mid last dny ot the tournnmont
was nil that the most critical or fastidious
could desire , BO far as the weather was con-
corned. The attendance nt Union park , al
though not unite equal to that of the two
preceding days , w.ts still very largo , con-
nlderably exceeding dvo thousand people.
Comparatively few of the visitors had loft
for homo on the Thursday evening trains , as
nil found the races ot sulUclont Interest to
Induce them to stuy to the close.
The rucos nt the pirk commenced about 10
o'clocit in the forenoon. The llrst race on
the day's ' programme was the hose race , 47
class. There were seven starters , and they
ran in the following order : J. M. Hairs , efFort
Fort Dodge ; Donnlson * , of Mason City ,
Avocns , of Avoca ; Hurdlngs , of Harlnn ;
Elsumnns of Council HlufTs ; Hopes , of Mar-
slmltoivn ; Mannings , of Manning.
The flrst four ran during the forenoon ,
nnd ' .ho otlior tliroo finished before the
free-for-all wns called In the afternoon.
The result of each run was ns follows ;
Tlio Hnlra made the run In ! 19 , nnd the
coupling In 47. The Donnlsons inndo the run
In ! W , and coupled In 40. Avoca and Harlun
both failed to-got time , ns their couplings
were Incomplete. The Uisoimtns mtvlo the
run In : i3 , and the coupling In 45. This wns
the best time over made by this team. The
Hopes made the run ln,40 , and made tholr
coupling In 4S } { .
It only lucked n quarter of 5 o'clock when
the bell tapped nt the start of the Manning
team. This wns the last run of the 47 class.
The run was nmdo In 31 % nnd the coupling
In 40. This gave the rnco to the Etsatnans ,
In 45 ; Hopes second. In 45J.nnd the Donni-
sona and Mannings tied , tor third place , In
40. They agreed to divide the purse and
took * 2 > each.
Two 100 yard foot races were run during
the forenoon. The first was between Thorn-
ish , of Lansing , Mich. , and Ross , of Wnhoo ,
Noo. It was won by Ross In 9 3-5. It was
nn interesting exhibition , being not only
very fait , but very closelv contested. Ross
won by nbout two Inches. The track wns
about twenty-four feet short.
The other sprinting rneo was between
Lozler , of Council 131 lifts , nnd Elliott , of Au-
dubon. It was nn uninteresting hippodrome ,
Lozier winning easily In 10 seconds. These
races completed tlio programme for the fore
It was nearly 3 o'clock when the racing
was resumed in the nftern < 5on. After the
unfinished 47 class had been run off , the free-
for-all hook and ladder race was called.
TLoro were two prizes offered , ? 2H ( ) to flrst ,
and $100 to second. There were three en
tries -tho Stunit Hook nnd Ladder com
pany , of Stuart ; Audubon Hook and Ladder
company , of Audubon , nnd Otocs , of Ne
braska City. The latter did not have their
truck with them , and the others ungra
ciously refused to let tuom have the use of
their apparatus. The judges decided to lot
them run through , which ttiey did in 45J
The Stuarts made the run and climb in 47 ,
nnd Audubou inV53 , giving llrst money to
The P. Lacv juvenile hose team then gave
an exhibition run of 123 yards. The kids
gave a very pretty exhibition and were loudly
A horse hose race was next given. There
was but ono entry , tbo No. 1 hose of the
Council Bluffs lira department. Chief
Walters started with his buggy at the same
time. The rnco was from a standing start , '
run 200 yards , attach to hydrant , Iny 100
yards hose , break coupling and nttach pipe ,
'iho race was n lively one. The chief's ' borso
made the run in 23J , nnd the hose tc.un in
HS f. The coupling was completed In just
one minute.
The last race of the day and of the tourna
ment wns the grand free-for-all hose race , for
which there were seven entries. They started
in the following order : Alvords , of Eldora ;
Wliitncys , of Atlantic ; Rescues , of Council
lilufts ; Dennisons , of Mason City : Kramers ,
of Kearney ; Hopes , of Marsunlltown , and
Chapins. of Union.
The Alvords made a line run in D8. but
their coupling fell wrong side up and they
used up 40 seconds before 'their wo.-k was
The Whltnoys made a llttloslower run ,
being caught in 80 , but they inndo a handy
coupling and got a murk of 45) .
The interest of Council Bluffs centered in
the next rnco. The Rescues took their posi
tion nt 0:15 : , nnd speedily ruled off the live
liest run of the tournament. They finished
with a handsome spurt in 37 , but the same
difficulty that the Alvords experienced fell
to the lot of the Rescues. The coupling fell
upside down , und ten full seconds were con
sumed before Betz finally made his coupling.
The time , ns flnullv announced from the
judges' stand , was 47 , nnd a weary lot of
Uluflltes snld good-byo to several hundred
good , hard simoleons , which went to enrich
the pockets of visiting sports. It was the
last chnuco the Rescues had to do the beauti
ful , and they wore beautifully left. Much of
the blame , if it can bo rightly characterized
ns such , was duo to the ovor-oxertion of
Botz. Instead of running ahead , ho insisted
on working the br.iko himself , and In this
manner overran the coupling several feet.
It was a sad disappointment , nnd the back
ers of the team concealed tholr chagrin ns
best they could.
The Kramers , the chamnion hoao team of
the world , nmdo a run In 40 nnd coupled in
45. Their harness broke- just before they
reached the outcome and lost thorn a second
or two. Mott , their coupler , did a handsome
piece of work.
The Hopes Snado a run in 37tf } , and with a
neat and lively couuling got n mark of 42X-
It was the liveliest race they had run.
The Chapins , the stnto champions , made a
run of U0 > i nnd coupled In 40 } , winning the
first money , $25'J ; Donnlsons , second ? 1GO ;
Kramers third , S100. That was the closing
c6ntcstof the eleventh annual tournament
of the State Firemen's association of low.i.
The J. M , Thurstnns , of Omnha , entered
for the free-for-all , but were barred. It was
claimed that it was not a regularly organ-
Ucd hose team , uml that it was comnosod
nlmost wholly of professionals , which nlono
ronstltutcid n bar , A slight kick on this
ground was made against the Kramers , hut
it was encouraged nnd no protest was made.

received n telephone mosaago from Drexel ft
Maul , Omnha undertakers , yesterday , on
notmelng the dlscovnry of the body of a innn
Ij Ing In the river ou the low.i sUIo , about
four miles nouth ol the city. County Coroner -
\v'ettcnnun was notified , and with nn un-
dorlnlror's wagon ctr.rt d after the corpse.
The tUrt was made nt 10 o'clocit yesterday
forenoon , but It was nearly 8 o'clock In the
evening inforo the party returned , utter
making u trip of twcnty.flvo miles and a
long Butrtti through the willows. There was
no per f-n to direct tUo coroner ami his party
to the locality , nnd tl-o b.iay was dlacoverctt
after a weary ecnrrh totup ! \ on a land Iftr ,
ulgh ; ailles below thn city. U was In na ad-
vunctd &UKO of deuaiui-oaltlon nnd covered
with Bwarras of Hies. TUo blucUtned mid

parently tlilrly-Uvo yearn old. The imir hfcd
ull lulleu from the ; ! ; , and tbo ' "
ciothmft was faded and discolored by the
sun nnd the Missouri river wind. The body
had been lying on the sand bar for
the past flvo days and had boon In the water ,
apparently , for thrco weeks. The only evi
dence the coroner could obtain beyond that
offered by the mass of putrifylng flesh Itself
was that given by n man who found the body
In the rlvor a week ago while goltjg down In
n skiff , and who pulled It to the sandbar nnd
tied it to the willows , nnd who came bacit
throe days after nnd found It still laying
there. Two days later ho reported the fact
to the Omaha authorities.
In the pants pockets wore found a revolver
nnd SO cents In money , and In ono of the coat
pockets n letter written on the business letter -
tor head ot Forbes Bros. , importers o > t Clydes
dale horses , Jefferson , la. The letter was
dated Jefferson , March 2 , nnd preferred the
charge of drunkenness against . C. SturJa-
vant , n member of Greene lodge , No. 315 ,
I. O. O. F. , of Jefferson. It was signed by
the secretary , C. M. Forbes. In another
pocket , in a mass of papers the water had re
duced to a pulp , wore two receipts printed on
llnnn paper , qlvon by the South western Iowa
Mutual Benefit association , both dated Jef
ferson , March 0 , ono to Mary M. Sturdavant
for J3.03 dues and the other to W. C. Sturda
vant for S'J.Stl for dues to the satno associa
tion. The receipts wore- numbered 0,03'J
nnd 2.090. respectively , nnd both slcncd
"H. C. Sayor , per S. Flack , secretary. "
There is but llttlo doubt that the body
Is that ofV. . C. Sturdavant. a well known
character of Jefferson , who left that town a
month ago to come to Council Bluffs , whore
all truce of him was lost. It Is believed that
he c.iino hero with a considerable sum of
money to purchase horses , nnd If this can bo
proven there are grounds for believing ho
was robbed nnd murdered nnd the body
thrown hub the river. Or It may bo possi
ble ho took his own life. It is reported that
ho has wealthy relatives living near Yank-
ton. Dak.
Tlio body was taken to Falrvlew cemetery
last evening und burled.
Free Vnv All Thieves.
Ono olUio most remarkable features of
the tournament is the vast number of crooks ,
thugs and gamblers of high nnd low degree
who huvo attended from the first day.
Another equally rcmarkablo thing Is the
boldness nnd Indeeoncy they have boon per
mitted to use In runntnc their names. There
Is not a skin game that has ever been dovlscd
that h'as not boon operated with as much
boldness ns the starter or the ticket sellers
use In dischaiging their duties. The bold
ness of the transactions has been the chief
cause of complaint , for It has been thu means
of catching hundreds \vho are ordinarily
wary to protect themselves , but were dis
armed by the buslness-llko way ttio games
were conducted and tnc prominence given
them by the management. Tim sharlcs could
show some sort of u license from the city
and the police could not or would not arrest
them , although the meanest , robberies were
committed right in tlio dazzle of thu official
Yesterday morning an effort was made by
Judge Bolton to get the thieves within the
pale of the law. Charles Scibcrt , nn Omaha
man , imagined ho was shrewd enough to
beat the follows nt their own game , and nut
up ? ( ir . The wheel turned nnd ho won , but
the fellow grabbed the money and refused
to give it up. Soibert endeavored to have
him arrested but fulled , and was hustled
away by the gang of cappers. Ho applied to
Judge Bolton. as an attorney , for assistance ,
and with the Intention of pointing out the
follow to the judge for Indcntlllcatlon , re
turned to the vicinity of the greedy wheel.
Thov were immediately surrounded by a
gang of the toughs and pushed , kicked and
cuffed. This was more than Judge Bolton's
democratic southernblood could endure , and
a lively tlmo ensued for n few moments.
The judge's friends rescued him and brought
him up town. Ho wont into Justice Bur
nett's court und swore to an information
charging a largo number of unknowns with
assault and battery. Warrants wore Issued
and a corps of constables disuatchcd to the
grounds to servo them , but every ono of
the skin games was in the hands of now
man. After patroling the grounds for sev
eral hours the officers wore unable to find
the judge's assailants , and returned the
writs at 2 o'clock unserved.
The management of the tournament are
pretty freely criticized for the license given
the sharks to rob tholr patrons. It has been
even intimated that some of the gentlemen
interested in the management were on very
intimate terms with the thlovcs themselves.
It is reported that ouo victim lost S203 , and
wont to ono of the gentlemen high up in
authority and made a lively remonstrance.
Ho proved to bo a personal friend of the
gentleman , and the matter was quickly set
tled by the gambler returning the money to
his victim. The little act from the Damon
and Pythias drama was a very pleasant epi
sode , nnd worthy of a good deal of com
mendation , but. it affords very little consola
tion for the other victims of the thiovcs who
were not fortunate enough to have some
personal friend in the management.
"I have boon at hundreds of ovor.v kind of
public gatherings from Maine to Texas , "
said a business man to a BBE reporter , last
night , "but I never saw so much and such
moan and hold thievery ns I saw at the
driving park yesterday. There were thou
sands of dollars stolen from the people , and
the thlovcs protected by the mayor's ' little
license. I have not heard n man talk of any
thing else for the past twenty-four hours
than the mayor's licensing of the tniuvcs to
rob the cuests the city had invited und was
entertaining so royally. It's n shame nnd
disgrace to Council Bluffs , and It's being
talked of in every town within 300 miles or
us. It certainly will give us a bad reputa
tion. Then there wore nt least fifty beer
booths fctarted in various parts of the city ,
with some sort of un understanding with the
city that , they wore to bo permitted to run
during the tournament. They started up so
suddenly nnd in such unexpected places that
I am confident that not ono-h.ilf of them had
even u government license. Thcso features
of the tournament wore a sad disgrace to the
city , nnd thu people who are not responsible
for it are heartily ashamed of it. "
