JccU To Being Misrep
The city council hnd n ratlicr warm nnd
lengthy discussion on various matters Mon
day evening after the regular routtno busi
ness of the meeting had boon transacted. At
tlmos the debate assumed a very Interesting
nature , us the nldcrmcn nlroil their views of
bow things \voro anil ho\v thny should bo.
Aldcrmun ISvorctt opened the ball by pro-
sotitlng a resolution directing the otty at
torney to take charge of all city cases with
out tiny formal notice from the council , nnd
also suits ag.Unst tlio board of equalisation
To this Mr. Holmes stated that ho did not
hnvo to bo told to do his work. Aldornmn
Knepher thought that the resolution was not
necessary , Aldornmn Lacy defended the
city attorney , stating ho Imd always at
tended to his duties , and hnd won more cases
for the city than all city attorneys out to-
Kotlior. When there was nny necessity for
the services of the attorney ho was nlw.xys
on hand. The resolution was dropped , not
mooting with a second. Alderman Everett
then wanted to know if Holmes desired as
sistance in fighting tlio Union Pacific assess
ment , sltico ho had stated the board had a
rlijlil to change the assessment. To this Mr.
Holmes stated if Mr. Everett would cull at
tils ofllco ho could consult with him , but ho
was not giving public opinions in that man
ner. Ho had not statednnythlnc concerning
the right to changa assessments , but hereto
fore when It had been done , it was m the na
ture of a compromise.
Mr. Everett wpt of thooplnlon that Holmes
hnd rendered his opinion that it would bo
legal for the council to cut down the assess
ment of the executive council of the stnto ,
nnd that the council had only acted in the
matter on the strength of the city solicitor's
report. A short and hoatcd debate closed the
subject without action.
Alderman Everett then presented a resolu
tion directing the street supervisor to report
to the street and alloy committee every Sat
urday n list of the men and teams employed
mid where the work was done. 'He stated ho
ind not been able to ascertain anything of
the work ot the supervisor , nnd If this was
: o bo the policy ho would not sign the bills
for the payment of the nicn , If ho could not
tnow what was going cm lie would resign his
place on the committee. Alderman Lacy
claimed that Everett refused to "O. K. " the
Dills of the street commissioner because
ihero wa * no report from that ofllciul , yet
Mr , Everett never attended commit
tees nicotines , or ho could see the
reports imule by Mr. Avery. Mr. Lacy
stated ho had failed time and titno over to get
Everett to go and look at work. Ho had
always made reports of the street work up
to the time Everett came in the council , but
as ho had objected to the bills from the start ,
nnd would not attend to the looking after the
work , ho hnd refused to make reports. Ho
Imd a number of petitions in his pocket
which ho would not touch because Everett
failed to do committco work. The fourth
ward aldermnn insinuated all was not right ,
and that In order to convince him that the
street supervisor was doing work properly
Iio would favor the turning of the entire
work of thiiV-olllciul over to Mr. Everett. Ho
( Lacy ) was not anxious to do this work. He
know the streets were In good shape , and at
less expense than ever before. Ho could not
see any cuuso for tlio lick.
Everett replied by stating ho would sign
no moro bills unless ho knew what was go
ing on , and Lacy responded that bo could
know if lie would attend to the committed
woric us ho should do. The resolution was
defeated , Lacy , Waterman nnd Knophcr
Alderman ICtiephar moved the appoint
ment of n special committco to investigate
the workings of the w.itor works company ,
fire department , and the work of the auto
matic pressure system in charge of the city
marshal , and ascertain who was to blame for
the failure of water pressure at the Into
lires. Mayor Ilohrer stated that so far as
the marshal was concerned , men were paid
to remain on duty , both day nnd night , and
he knew of times when the station was
locked up. After n lengthy discussion the
resolution was nasscd.

on Information before 'Squlro Schurz , alleg
ing that Mrs. Gladwln hnd possession of a
lot of her clothes , aud would nut lot her have
them. A search warrant was issued , the
property found , nnd turned over to the
rightful owner. Gladwiu was in the court
room , and ns soon ns the case was decided ,
left the room In company with Miss Wilson.
His wife had previously given him the
baby , which ho took with him , but the fol
lowed him out , mid moated a row at
the eorimrof Broadway mid Main streets.
Coming up bohlud Gladwln , she < t lzcd his
lint and thow it Into thn tnlddlo of tlio stieot ,

him. Khe took hold of bl > arm , il'.illing him
back und forth auros the sidewalk , uaying
that he must support her und the children as
they wore starving to death , uto.
Judge Ayleiwurlh happened to bo a spectator
tater of the utTulr , and ordered a policemen
to take them into custody , Thn judge visited
the station shortly nfturw-mt for the pur
pose of finally settling the case.
Qlndwnt was lltst culled out and Informed
that ho must take his family und go back to
Dos Molnon. He demurred , but the court
Insisted that ha must ao or the whole outfit
would bo looked up , SaUUhe court ; ' 'This

court In whloh ono of you three is the plain
tiff nnd ono or both of the others defendants.
It not only annoys nil of your neighbors , but
it ban cost us qulto a sum for costs. Wo
have enough of it , nnd you must go to jail or
get back to DPS Molncs. "
Gladwln agreed to leave the city , but the
court would not consent to this. Ho In
sisted that the family must go together , nnd
KO where the authorities were bound to tnko
cnro of them , Gladwln was locked up ngnln
to think over the matter , nnd the wife nnd
two little children were brought In.
She was told of the courts decision , and
declared that she would not go. Said olio :
"They won't keep mo there , for when I was
sick last winter they only gave mo 50 cents ,
nnd I can't stand that. Wo never had n bit
of trouble until that girl cnmo to Itvo with
us , nnd if shn was out of the way wo could
got nlong nil right. "
The court wns inexorable , nnd gave the
woman until Friday to pack her things nnd
get ready to go. Shosald slu had hndtiolthor
breakfast nor dinner , nnd the court ordered
the munhal to procure a meal for her nnd
The younger woman wns then ushered in ,
nnd began to cry when told of the disposi
tion to bo made of the case. She Insisted
that she had done nothing out of the way ,
nnd her tears flowed copiously when
the court told her that Gladwln win to bo
sent bock to DCS Moines with his family.
"Did he say ho would go ! " she inquired.
"Ho didn't have anything to say about It , "
said the court. "I said ho would , nnd ho is
going , nnd you must got out of town or go to
jail. You can go to the door and talk to him ,
and make nny arrangement you desire. "

"Thoro will be a lot of surprised people In
this city Inside of n week , " was the remark
made to THE BEE yesterday by a member of
the bnr. "Do you know what the grand jury
is doing ! " he continued. The scribe an
swered that It was gouorally understood that
nn investigation ot the gambling trans
actions nt the recent firemen's tournaments
was going on.
"Investigation well , I should sny so. They
nro examining the greatest batch of wit
nesses that has been eubptuiKud on any case
over called before the grand Jury in this
county. Lawers , doctors , ministers nnd
business men generally nro included Jn the
list , while the city officials nnd members of
the police force hare ulso boon called in to
tell what the know about the disgraceful
proceedings carried on during the three days
of the tournament. I know quite a little con
cerning the proceedings of the body , but , of
course , I can not give up its secrets until the
proper time. I can tell you ono thing , and
that is Hint a number of indictments will
bo returned acralnst parties you would
never think of in .this connection.
The grand jury Is not going into this work
for , fun , and they will sift it to the bottom.
Another thing that they will do is to talco a
look at the gambling and saloon question.
The gambling nt the park Is not the only
Instance that will bo investigated , and I
would not bo at all surprised to see such
steps taken as would result in closine up
both the sulooas nnd the gambling houses.
There is some testimony being Introduced
that would astonish .theso folks If they only
knuw it. I tell you ngnm , there is going to
be bomo fun before long , but it will not bo
for the interested parties. "
The proceedings going on at the court
house would indicate that there was a great
deal of truth in what the gentleman said ,
even if his position did not grant him a
privilege of uscertainngtho ! facts in the
case , aud personally knowing what ho was
talking about. All of this week the grand
jury has been hard nt work investigating the
tournament business , nnd several of the
executive officers who had charge of the
nffair have been called in to toll wha they
know nbout it.
C. M. Mavnard , the recording secretary ,
was yesterday subpoenaed to appear bcforo
that body , and bring nil the books nnd
records of nil meetings of the association rel-
ntivo to the tournament of 18SU. The chief
of police and chief of the fire department
were among those examined ,
It is siatcd that the examination of wit
nesses will not bo completed before Satur
day , ns the grand jury will not be In session
to-duy. The report is to bo made Saturday
evening , and Judge Carson will b < j on tbo
bench to receive it.
The matter is creating a great deal of a
stir , and there nro several parties occupying
very responsible and exalted position ? who
nro feeling decidedly shaky over the result.
THIS Bun watched the course affairs were
taking yesterday evening very carefully , and
was assurrcd that there will bo some aston
ishing developments by the end of the week.
A gentleman , whoso knowledge comes di
rectly from the "inside , " remarked that the
county attorney would bo Kept busy for moro
than half n day drawing up indictments.
The rartios Implicated say the whole thing is
merely a political move , nnd has for its ob
ject certain desired results in the comlnp fall
election. Others charge it directly to the pro
hibitionists. who , they allege , are attempting
to make capital out of this wholesale gam
bling for tliUr side in their move against the
saloons. The general Impression , however ,
is that the Investigation is being pushed bv a
Dumber of the leading business nnd profes
sional men of the city , who nro classed with
neither any political nor prohibition move
ment. The character of the witnesses sum
moned is above reproach , and It Is known
that they condemned the gambling foaturoof
the tournament In the most unmeasured
terms. It is certain that the Investigation
will boa most searching ono nnd all of the
facts regarding the transaction will bo
brought to light. It is stated that the books
of the association will show the gambling
privilege was leased for n good round sum ,
but this Is not alone rolled on. The action of
the grand Jury in Investigating the cnso is
openly commended , nnd the wholesale- return
of Indictments niralnst the responsible par
ties would undoubtedly moot with popular

"I uni getting tired of being misrepresent
ed , " remarked Alderman Everett as lie
stepped Into Tim Bun ofllco last evening ,
"and I would like to know why it Is that
jiomo of the papers can not give the facts In
cases as they exist. Nearly every paper In
this city has most outrageously misrepre
sented mo in regard to the Graham avenue
matter. Anyone would think that I had
been engaged la some criminal notion by the
distorted reports that are given by these
papers. The whole truth of the
matter Is that the court will bo
asked to dccido whether or not the
city is entitled to nn 100 foot street.
It Is charged that I am attempting to get a
change of grade , which Is utterly false and
without the slightest foundation. The fact
is I want tbo grade loft as It was established
n year ago , and several of tbo other property
owners want it cut down. If it was to bo
changed I would prefer to have It raised.
You see , It Is Just like thii T am on the up
hill side nnd they are on the other. Very
naturally , what would suit ono would dis
please the other. Now then , what wo main
tain Is just this : Mrs. Walker bought all
this property and donated a street through
it , 100 feet wide , to the city. There
was a mortgage on the property at the
time , nnd It was sold nt sheriffs a Mo.
This wo claim annulled the quit claim deed
to the city. It Is slmplyt ) nlco little point of
law. and when n judgq decides It that will bo
the end of It. Wo claim 'Ihnt there Is legally
no street there At all , | iutfl xvo do not want It
closed up. Wo must hnvo the street to got
to our property , but we maintain that it need
bo only CO feet wide. W > only nsk for what
tha court may say * to otirs , nud do not pro
pose to rob the city , hj charged , or anything
of the kind. " i

Lunay , who strangled the poor beast in
a few minutes. As it struggled , however -
