Council Bluffs , In. , Sept. 5 , 18SU.
No simple advertisement over caused n
greater socloty sensation than the above ,
\vhlcii appeared In an evening paner.
"What Is the matter with Judge Casndy
nnu his wlfol" Social circles wore sot In a
Whirl nt once. The Judge and Mrs. C.iSady
have llvou hero for year * And b3on among
the prominent1 * . .Tudgo Caiady came hero
In 1853 , and has boon very active In business
mid political circles , winning for himself
moru than a local reputation and accumu
lating nn estate which li estimated to bo of
over ? ll)0,00 ) < ) In value.
About live years ago he , bolng u widower ,
wedded the present Mrs. Cusudy , the relict
of Dr. Osbornc , who. In his lifetime , was a
very prominent physician of thin placo. The
wedding called forth congratulations and
well wishes almost us hourly as though the
contracting parties wore in the flush of
.youth's flrflt lovo. Slnco then Judge and
Mrs. Casnily were looked upon IXB enjoying
more than the average amount of married
happiness and social enjoyment. Mrs. Cas-
ady had a iioodly estate In her own name ,
and with the judge's Itboral'banU ' account
there scorned no financial obstacle to the full
enjoyment of life. The public announcement
over his signature cauio , therefore , as a flash
from a clour sky.
Kcportorwl InqutslUvuness quickly poeUod
Into the closet. Luxuriant as was the homo ,
thcro was a skeleton there. Of late there
has been much trouble between the sup
posedly happy couplo. .Tudgo Casady , al-
theugh only sixty-one years of ace , has of
late years broken a. good deal , and his failing
health has created many annoying demands
upon the time and strength of the wifo. Ou
hm part he tnought her hoirtless anil inat
tentive. On her part she looked upon him
us irrasciblo and ovcrbearlug. There were *
seine stormy and exciting scenes , which
would have surprised greatly the many
friends In tho"soclal circles in which Judge
and Mrs. Casady took such high rank.
The first of the month brought n surprise
to tlm judge ! Hills came fluttering In upon
him line a snow storm. Hero was one for
? 077 from Etacnmn fc Co. for dry goods
bought by Mrs. Casady during August. An
other from Ueno & to. ! lor H81 was for
some twenty dresses bought by Mrs. Casady.
Hero was a bill of Jacrniomin & Co. for 1081
for Jewelry. The old gentleman's breath
was ulmobt taken nwnv. HP. was not accustomed -
tomed to such expenditures. It began to
dawn through his br.itn that Mrs Casady ,
who had been charging him with being
stingy , was seeking sweat revenge. Hence
the notice to tlin public to give Mrs. Casady
no more credit on Ins account.
The bills and the advertisement led to
more scenes. Yesterday morning Mrs. Os-
borao took occasion to tell the Judge what
shu thoucht of him , and after stating clearly
the reasons why she could no longer live
with him , she swept through the door with
a stinging farowoll. She tooit hersulf to her
own house , where , In company with her
daughter , she will probably remain.
Soon after the stormy separation the papers
vero filed and served as the preliminary
proceedings of a divorce started by her. The
grounds on winch she bases her claim for
matrimonial freedom is that she canuot
longer endure tlie cruel and inhuman treat
ment of Judge Casady. She of course wants
alimony as well as freedom. She has se
cure John N. Baldwin as her attorney.
On the other hand Judge Casady's friends
laugh at the idea of Mrs. Casady being
cruelly treated by her husband , and of her
being afraid ot his physical abuse. She It a
halo , hearty woman of about forty-five ,
weighing twice as much as the Judge , who is
emaciated , tottering and feeble. It appears
to them that Mrs. Casady , with the inten
tion of forsaking him , planned to se
cure as many pleasant perquisites as possible.
During the month of Aucust she purchased
sucn nn unub'unl quantity of dresses and
finery that this-thcory is plausible. She had
all of these articles charged , amounting to
about. § 3.000. Among them was a $300 diamond
mend ring and a $750 set of diamond car-
rings. She bought fourteen yards of velvet
nt 10.50 a yard ; seven yards of lace nt 518 a
yard ; a luce fichu , $50 ; a cloak , S3T5 ; four
suits of silk underwear at 510 a suit ; a boa ,
mult and other needfuls for next winter's
Judge Casady says these goods
wore not delivered at his homo , and
the supposition is she bad
them taken elsewhere. Ho refuses to pay
the bills , and there Is a likelihood of these
being the occasion of other suits. As both
Judge * Cusad.v and Mrs. Casady are finan
cially able to pay the bills , the merchants
will doubtless collect their money from ono
or thoothcr of the misfit couplo.
Judtro Casady has placed the matter In the
hnnds'of his attorney , Finloy Hurko. The
legal debt will , therefore , in all probability ,
bo a hot one when it is fairly opened.

The board of supervisors concluded their
labors yesterday afternoon for the present ,
and adjourned till the 17th inst. , when it Is
hoped that Supervisor Waltn will have suf
ficiently recovered from his Illness to bo
present. The board transacted the following
business before adjournment :
\V. S. Wllklns wus elected Janitor of the
court house for the ensuing year , at a salary
of * I83 per month , all of the members pres
ent voting for him.
A monibor of the soldiers' relief commis

the small pox bills , will bo considered. The
petition of the bar association for certain
chftrgCR In the clerk's ofllce , and the removal

Fixing the School Hoard's Slnto.
It is announced on the quiet that Mr , S. S.
Keller will bo very llkoly to bo elected treas
urer of the school board for the ensuing
year , When the long and exciting dead look
of a year ORO Is remembered , a serious doubt
will aviso In the minds of many us to whether
any change will be effected without a bitter
tight , but It Is un Indlsputod fact that the
members of the board ara already doing
some hard work to perfect plans to carry
things their own way at the coming meeting
to bo hold a week from Monday night , the
regular September mooting , when u treas
urer and secretary are to bo elected. At the
last meeting of tha hoard , Mr , Hlnxulm ,
chairman of the flnanco committee , an
nounced that at the next mooting ho would
report the names of the proper parties to
fllltbose-oflleos , but the president promptly
oat down on him , and stated t'aut the whole
board would have soinethlnt ; to say about it.
As nearly as can bo ascertained Iho whole
ituntlou Is about like Jhls : Messrs. Ulaxslm
and Lnwson are opposed to tha present secretary -
rotary , Dr. Urown , and are stronely In favor
of Emmett Tlnloy , csq. . their defeated can
didate of n year ago. Their only show td
elect , him U to gain Mr. Sohoonlgoa's veto ,
o get which they must swallow Mr.
Schocntgon's choice for treasurer. This
will cause a deadlock , and it is qutto
probable that it will require some
liard work and very convincing loplc to got
, ho necessary fourth unto from the other side
of tne house. It U understood tint Mr. Ktil
er Is Mr. Schoontgon's cholco for treasurer ,
n which case It will bo Keller and Tinloy
against the choice of the ether three mom-
bora , possibly the present Incumbents , I'oro-
goy and Urown. In any event , there will
bo fun when the time comes.
The louir , hard contest of a year ago Is a ,
matter of record. After fruitlessly ballot-
ng for several sessions , n secretary was
Inally elected ono evening on the nlnety-
seventh ballot At present the members nro
very reticent , but It Is predicted that all will
bo free enough to express their views before
a choice Is finally effected.
The City Now Owns Kalrmnunt Pnrk.
T ate last evening a dcod was filed at the
county recorder's odleo that will undoubt
edly prove of great Interest to the citizens
of Council H luffs. It was nothing moro nor
.ess . than a quit , claim deed from Mary
Walker of this city of all her Interest In
Palrmount park. It will bo romum-
icrod that several months ago an on-
surprising law firm of this city Insti-
, utoil legal proceedings to wrest from the
city this beautiful park , all in behalf of a
certain "widow In Colorado , " in whom , It
was alleged , a certain title to the property
was vested. It now transpires that this law
linn secured quit claim deeds from various
parties who might bo supposed to have a
valid.claim on the property , but It Is alleged
that recent developments will expose soiuo
very crooked work in this particular.
About three weeks ago Park Commis
sioner Graham , Alderman P. Lacy and Fin-
ley Hurko slipped away on a quiet little trip ,
o secure some "needed rest and recrea
tion. " They sought It lu the mountains of
Colorado , although that was not announced
as their objective point , and labored long
and earnestly with the hitherto vague and
unrealistic "widow in Colorado. "
The result is that the cltyof Council Bluffs
now virtually becomes this snmo ' 'widow of
Colorado , " which facts will not prove pleas
ing to the nbovo mentioned legal ilrm. Dur
ing their western visit , the thrco gentleman
previously referred to ascertained something
of the manner m which this avaricious law
firm had worked to secure their quit claims.
To tbo "widow" they represented that
thev desired to perfect the title to Williams'
addition , otherwise Fairmount park , in bo-
Imlf of the city , to preserve it from any
claims that might bo mudo at some future
time to deprive the city of Council Bluffs of
its greatly treasured beauty spot. She was
Induced to give a warrant deed ot the park ,
for which they agreed to give her
21,000 , assuming upon themselves
the responsibility of settling with the city ,
they to have all that they could got over tha
stipulated sum. But they failed to pay thn
sum agreed upon , and now the metamor
phosed "widow , " otherwise the city of Coun
cil Bluffs , who has been the defendant , will
assume the part of plaintiff In a suit for ob
taining property under false nrotouscs.
To other parties who held Interests of
which they desired a quit claim the law
ilrm represented they wanted the quit claim
m the interest of tha aforesaid "widow , " in
all of which proceedings the firm figured in
anything but an enviable light.
Sufllco It to say , that for the sum of J1'J03
in hand paid D.V the city of Council Bluffs to
the aforesaid Mary Walker , the latter has
quit claimed all of her interest in Williams'
addition to the city. Until now , the
city has been anxious to stave off
a . hearing of the case , which has
been several times postponed for this reason ,
but Is now ready for the case to go on. It is
set for trial September 25 , and it will now
bo the defendant instead of the plaintiff that
will push the caso. It is not expected that
the plaintiff's will bo very eager to urge
their claim and invite a full and complete
disclosure of everything connected with tbo
case , but in any event the city Is now in a
position to dictate instead of being subject
to dictation as to terms.
A Gioso Connection.
Two electric motor trains collided oa the
bridge Thursday evening , but fortunately
without doing any serious damage , The
trains usually pass at the switch in the
center of the bridge , but 'soino of the con
ductors , when a little ahead of time , run by
and meet the opposite train at the end of the
bridge. This wus the case in this instance.
The onstbound train passed onto the single
track before the other loft it. The brakes
wore sot tightly , but this did not prevent a
collision , which shook the cars severely ,
throwing several passengers from their
scats , a few of thorn falling to the ground.
Mrs. John T. Oliver , of this city , sustained
a badly sprained aim and several smaller
Drulscs , and a number of children wcro
badly shaken. None of the bruises were
severe , and the damage to the car * was

Killed on the Kail.
Brief mention was made In thcso columns
yesterday of the killing of an unknown man ,
supposed to bo a tramp , In the Hook Island
yards , by the incoming fast freight over that
road , about 1 ; 30 o'clock yesterday morning.
The remains were removed to the tinder-
taking establishment of Field & Estop , whcra
the inquest , was hold yesterday forenoon.
The evidence Introduced was very monger
and threw very little light on the affair ,
which still remains shrouded in mystery tea
a certain extent.
It is very probable that it will never ba
known whether the dead man foil under tha
wheels accidentally or was pushed from the
train by sonic person unknown. , The bead
brakeman is the only man who has thus far
boon able to tell anything about the accident.
His evidence , as given at tbo inquest , was to
the effect that bo knew nothing of the pres
ence of tramps until the train stopped at the
"Q" crossini ; , a few hundred feet cast
ot tbo Hock Island local depot.
The engine whistled , and the tram
had partly started again , when he
turned and looked toward tha rear of the
train. Ho was standing on tho'frontcar , and
his lantern was setting near his feot. He
saw two men walking toward him over tha
tops of the cars. Ho turned toward the en
gine for a moment , and when ho looked back
again ono of the men bad disappeared. His
attention had not been diverted from them
moro than a second , and as ho Booked back
the second time ho saw the car on which the
man had stood Jump as if passing over some
thing on tha track. Ho wont back and told
the remaining stranger thut his comrade had
been run ever and to get down and look after
him. The stranger immediately clatnborod
down the side of the car and disappeared ,
The train pulled up Into the yards , u dis
tance of about t'.vp tr.iin lengths , and a switch
engine was sent back to look
after the unfortunate victim. Ho' was
found lying dead and horribly mangled
a few yards cast of tbo crossing.
His former companion wus nowhere to ba
scon , und has remained n missing and un-
knowii quantity up to the present timo. The
braloman [ could < ; lvo no information as to
whether the dead man fell from the car ac
cidentally or whether his unknown com
panion LMVO him the fatal nush. When the
two were soon together the deceased was
walking in front of the ether , so that the
latter must certainly have soon him fall ,
even If ho did not participate In any foul
None of the trainmen know that the
tramps were on the train , and it Is not
known where they rode , as the train vraa
made up of through time freight and every
car was sealed. The only clua as to where
they came from wan furnished by the en
gineer , who testified that while the train was
at Wcston , the first station east ol
this city , ho saw two man cross
the track Just in front of the engine ,
under tha full gluro of the headlight.
Ho paid no particular attention to It , as It
was a matter of common ocourenco. Ho de
scribed the men as being somewhat on the
tramp order ono tall and amooth faced ,
wearing a dark suit of clothes and browo
derby hat , and the ether shorter , and wear
ing a slouch hut. The former corresponds
exactly with the dead man , and the bralui-
man say * the ether would tally with the en <
gniccr's description of tin ; second party ,
The unfortunate victim was frightfully
muuglod from the chest down. Uoth aruie
wcro crushed , luga amputated and cut in
anvcral places , ami xliir hody cut in two } lu

The Nonpareil yesterday urged the ap
pointment of an Inspector for the work being
done on Pearl street by the Klcctrlo Motor
company. For the information of that paper
it may ba stated that City Engineer Stlmson
has appointed an inspector , Mr. O. v ; Umd ,
who has bcou attending to his duties since
the work of relaying paving was commenced.
Mr. Hood Ims been a sewer and paving Inspector
specter for the past four years
and thorouehly understands his business ,
The paper above referred to fcovoroly cor.-
sures thu company for the work being done
at the head of Pearl street. The fact is that
the paving at that point Is being replaced
temnorarily , as it must bo removed again In
a few days when the curves and switches ar
rive , as curves nro going to boon the run
down Bioadway as well 111 up. The paving
has merely been replaced to accommodate
the public for a short time , and not as a
permanent paving. Below the point where
the paving Is to bo again taken up , the work
ot relaying the blocks Is being done in ns
good shape ns Is possible with old and par
tially decayed material. Now inch boards
nro being laid under the blocks , in ulaco of
the badly decayed nlank that was taken out ,
and the gravel is being very solidly tamped.
A liberal coat ot tar will put the street in
fully as good condition as It was before.

TUB Bnn.l One of the ugliest lights seen
this season came off early yesterday morning
in a sporting resort near Jersey City. The
principals in the match were George Tracy ,
of Hobokcn , and Mike Davin. of Jersey City.
Both men are professionals. Davin was
seconded bj < Charley Quinn. Tracy was
looked after by Gcoigb Walker. Mike Bren-
nan was roforeo. Both men were skin-tight
gloves with the lingers cut off. Davin" is
twenty-four years old , 5 feet 5X inches tall ,
and weighs 1S8 pounds. Tracy is . " > feet ( i
inches tall , weighs 132 pounds and is twenty-
The men fought seven savngo rounds. In
the third round Davin landed hard on Tracy's
Jugular and sent him down. Tracy got up
and catching Davin In the mouth , ho
knocked all his front teeth out. Davin
lost all control over himself and rush
ing ut Tracy , ho tried to thrdw
him. The referee stopped the light
and warned Davin that if ho'ropeated his
actions ngnln ho would give the fight to
Tracy. Then there was uivo and take , and
soon both men's faces presented the appear
ance of pieces of broiled beef stoak.
In thu seventh round Tracy let go a
stinger on Davln's eye. In striking Davin
in the eye Tracy's thumb caught Davin ic
the corner of his eye and the eye was nearly
gouged out. Davin became almost crazy ,
und ho rained blow after blow on Traoy's
face until the latter looked as if he would
like to quit. He put up his hands to protect
bis face , and Davin caught him under the
chin , knocking him out. As Tracy did not
como to time the referee awarded the fight

BOSTON , Mass. , Sept. 0. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB HUB. ] CJ. H. Fall , n Boston
lawyer , has Just returned from n trip to
Bohvln. Ho brings some valuable Informa
tion concerning the work that has been done
there by W. II. Cnrlsty , n Boston man.
About four years ao Christy came Into pos
session of the Londros mine , which has slneo
proved ona of the richest in the world. The
Londres wus first worked by the Spaniards
800 years ago. Some thirty years ngo It
came into tha possession of English capi
talists , who maiio largo slims of money from
It , The ofllcors ot the English com
pany , ib is snld , bcgnu to steal
the ere , and after a time the
stockholders refused to put up money with
which to conttnuo the work. Finally the
English capitalists abandoned It altogether.
Thu mlno became flooded no badly that no
ono cared to undergo the risk of n heavy
outlay of monny to pump it out , and tor
twenty years it lay idle. Christy cleaned out
the mlno and the Bolivian government treed
It of water by means of an underground tun
nel and began digging. The diggings com
pr'so ' 25 per cent of copper and 7ft per cant
silver , tbo latter averaging from 200 to 2,000
ounces per ton. Christy has also como
into possession of cluht lead mines
and the only coal mlno In
Bolivia. The coal that has been heretofore
used has been brought from Chill mid olsc-
where and sold to merchants ut f''OO per ton.
The development of Christy's coal mlno ,
which nppcars to nave no limit ns to quan
tity , will bring a much-needed relief to the
merchants , who now expect to get their coal
for S30 per ton , which will allow Christy a
handsome profit. Already thcro are SOO
miners at work In the coal and lead mines.
The Bolivian government has given Christy
the exclusive privilege of smelting In the ru-
publio for fifteen years.
