COMPLICATIONS OF HIS AFFAIRS.
Ho Has Swindled Nearly Everyone He

Mnn'H Wife How Ho
A. Schlutcr , who has been until the last
day or two the proprietor of a livery barn at
010 Broadway , Is missing , nnd there are sev
eral parties in the city who would Ilko to
hear from him. Ihcro have been
rumors for some ttmo past that his
business was not conducted on the best
of business principles , but thcro has
been nothing upon which his creditors
could resort to extreme measures , until Sat
urday night when ho left town apparently
lop good. Ho took with him Mrs. Yount ,
with whom ho has been living on Park
nvcnuo for several months past. The woman
it is stated has n husband living In Sioux
City. His Illght was not discovered until
Ofllcer & Pursy own the building on lower
Broadway whcro Schlutcr has been doing
business. The property was leased
until next July , but last De
cember thu landlords became restless over
their tenant's failure to pay rent promptly.
They threaten to pusn him when ho Induced
Dan Carrlgg to sign tbo lease with him.
Cajrlpg in this way became to all intents and
purposes the lessee of the building , nnd
Schlutcr the sub-tenant. When Cnrrlfig dis
covered that his protege played him false , heat
at once sot about protecting himself ,
nnd had n landlord's writ of
attachment issued , for K y , to secure the
Yesterday afternoon a further complication
arose when the Citizen's State bank , by Its
attorneys , Messrs , Sims & Saundcrs , served
a notice on the city marshal that they hold n
mortgage on the establishment for S'-.MX ) . It
is s > t.itea that for some lime past Sthluer has
been quietly disposing of his horses , wagons ,
and mules , and the result Is that thcro Is not
enough to satisfy the claims of the mortg-
a ; ces.
Creditors are looming up by the do/en. L.
Seybcrt , the propriotorof the Ticmont house ,
where Schlutcr formerly boarded , mourns
his departure tOGO worts. Of this amount
* U'r < > is for n board bill and $500 for a loan
which was made to the boarder when ho was
in better circumstances. Schluter bad n con
tract from the city for the grading of Lincoln
avenue , ana the men who worked for him on
that Job are left In the lurch as to
their uay. The amount of the shortage In
this item being several hundred dollars. A
part of the bill was to bo paid by the school
boo rd , and this sum was allowed to him by
the school board nt its lost meeting. Schluter
neglected to draw the money and it was at
tached yesterday afternoon by the Citizens'
State bank. Besides these , there are al
most innumerable smaller bills unpaid
in various stores about the city. Ono
of the first evidences of crookedness
tnnt became public ' .vas n business
transaction which Schlutcr baa with
n party frcm St. Joseph. The St. Joseph
man brnnuht ui > a number of mules to bo
sold. They wrro sold by the proprietor of
the barn for fsOO and Schluter , ft is claimed ,
pocketed the proceeds. A. J. Popploton of
Omaha was the buyer.
Tnoiqucstlon which will have to bo set
tled between the bank and Carigg Is whether
the mortgage or the landlord's writ of at
tachment takes precedence. Cnrrigg states
that ho has examined the records nnd has
found that the stock was moved lut the
.stable August 3 , while the mortgage was not
filed with the county recorder until tto Oth.
Ho claims that on this account his claim is
prior to that of the mortgagco.

Ho Likes the Water.
"I am very sorry to see Mayor Macrao take
the stand ho has In regard to the city water , "
said T. J. Evans yesterday afternoon to a re
porter for THE BEE. "I have made a good
deal of use of the water this spring and I can
say truthfully that I have never seen any
thing so good for the purposes which I have
used It as this very water that the mayor
condemns so strongly. 1 have watered my
front lawn on Oakland avenue all spring.
My next door neighbors have used ordinary
barn yard fertilizers to bring their
gnus up to time , but thcro is no
comparison between the two. My
grass is decidedly the best on tbo
avenue , and the only thing I have used on it
in the way of n fertilizer la-water from the
waterworks. The germs of different sorts of
things that cuter into Its makeup seem to bo
Just the thing to make the lawns take on
their spring hue. Drinklngl Oh , well , that
is something different. I wouldn't advlso
you to say anything very much about this
water as an article of diet. Everything , you
know , has Its place , and the water from the
Council Bluffs waterworks has its place , but
It Isn't on the human stomach. No , Its very
good for grass , but not much good for

City Attorney Stewart filed his answer
yesterday morning In tbo superior court in
the case of DoercVelU & Co. vs the city nnd
the city treasurer , L. Klnnchnn , which was
commenced last week for tbo purpose of com
pelling the treasurer to pay a couple of Judg
ments which wcro assigned to the plaintiffs.
The Judgments wcro rendered by a
Justice of the peace In the cast
end of the county. In his answer
the attorney claims that the justice who
rendered the Judgment resided cast of the
west line of range -10 nnd had therefore no
Jurisdiction over the case. The statutes pro
vide that the 'court ot Avoca shall have
original nnd exclusive Jurisdiction over all
coses which may arlso cast of that line , nnd
If the case should bo appealed It would bo
appealed to the court at Avoca. thereby giv
ing It Jurisdiction indirectly that It did not
have directly. The case will probably have
n hearing today.

Thcro was a rumor on the streets yesterday
day that Justice Pattou had decided to re
sign his ofllce , provided the parties who nro
trying to push him to the wall would let him
alono. Justice Patton could not bo found all
day nnd none of bis friends could or would
say whether the rumor was true or false. It
is u fact , however , that a certain individual
visited some of the persons who have taken
the load in the prosecution nnd. asked them if
they would bo willing to drop
the proceedings if he would re
sign. The parties who were thus
approached replied that they had no
power to drop the proceedings even if they
had the disposition to do so. The county at
torney has received his orders from the
board of supervisors to begin suit against
him at once and the order -cannot bo taken
back without the calling of a special meeting
of the board for that purpose , and that is out
of all range of probability. The grand Jurj
is not at all likely to ignore the case , aud will
tnko it up as soon as it can bo reconvened.

In speeches which wore well received. The
discussion brought a few words from each of
the following gentlemen : Messrs. Marple.
Gurloy , Kiliwtrick , Hoaton , Hitchcock and

ment against the proposition.

Niagara falls , the world's ' greatest cavar-

bo described. Pouring over a precipice 100
feet high , the Immense volume of water of

side of the river are trplendld views of this
tremendous watcrfall/abovo It and below It
and all about it are other scenes which have
attracted travelers from all parts of the
world. Goat island , the burning spring , the
whirlpool rapids , the suspension bridge , are

Lane was fought Is Within a few minutes
drive on the Canadlanrsido. The facilities
for visiting-all points ifllj interest on either

eral points now prevent the exorbitant

Niagara falls Is ono great event In an aver-
