llar Legal Complication * .
The Grand hotel became the scene of a
lively encounter again yesterday morning
when a constable , armed with tbe necessary
papers , went tuera and attempted to levy on
tbe laundry and kitchen lurniture on the
strength of a chattel mortgage vthlcn had
been executed in favor of J. J. Shea on Feb
ruary 11 by John F. Kim ball and George H.
Champ for the amount uf & 3U , and another
rnortTage of the same date in favor of E. A.
Wlckbam for 150. Juice Thornell was at
once applied to by tbe attorneys for Receiver
C. R. Hannaa for an order restraining the
holders of the mortgages from levying on
the property In question. In the petition It
was alleged that the hotel bad beeu leased to
E. F. Clark and tbat the seizure of
the furniture would work Irreparable Injury
to tbe hotel. It xvas also alleged that the
plaintiff believed that ha oad a valid defense
to the mortgages , and that ho bad offered to
appear in court oa a saitfor foreclosure with
out process , but that the holder of the mort
gages refused to allow it , insisting upon sum
mary foreclosure. On those representations
the levy was prevented , and the property was
left In the bands of a receiver.
The mortgages above referred to had been
given to Wickham as security for the amount
which was still owing him for tno construc
tion of the building , while that of Shea waste
to secure attorney's fees for appearing lor
Kimball & Champ in a recent law
suit in which they were defendants
ants in the district "court. Frustrated
in his attempt to get possession ot the kitchen
and laundry furniture in this manner , Shea
decided to try an ancient though effective
way cl gettine even with the receiver of the
property , and with that end in view invoked
the aid of the state prohibitory law. Within
an hour after tbe writ of injunction had been
issued from the district court to prevent the
levy on the goods , another petition was on
file in which J. J. Shea appeared as plaintiff.
In this petition it was altered that the
Grand Hotel was a place where intoxicate
inr liquors were accustomed to be sold la vio-
latiation of the prohibitory law , and an in
junction was demanded to prevent tbe sale
of liquors from being carried on any loneer.
C. K. Hannan , the Kimball-Cbamp Invest
ment company , and Edward F. Clark were
made defendants to tbe suit. Judge Thor
nell heard the application for a temporary
writ of injunction and set next Tuesday
morninp at 10 o'clock ai the time for the
bearing of the case. Shea announces bis in
tention of showing the people of Counril
Cluffs what a success the prohibitory law
can be made in a given instance with a man
back of the effort that means Du.iness.
A rumor was circulated to the effect that a
searcb warrant would bu Issued from some
justice court for the purpose of determining
whether there were any intoxicating liquors
to be found in the hotel. For fear that this
report was true Manager Clark had the bar
room hermetically sealed all evening , and if
u search had oeen made the searcher would
have found dim picking. It is stated that
no effort will bejmade to run tbe bar until the
injunction suit now pending is settled.

TOO LATE TO MEND.
Xo Hope Whatever Tor Relief From the
The delegation wbicn went ta Des Moines
last Sunday to try to cajole the bouse of rep
resentatives into passing the Uatcn bill , or
some equally satisfactory temperance meas
ure , returned yesterday noon in no very hilari-
ois frame ot mind. From the time they set
foot in the capital city life was a series of
disappointments , and by tbe time they were
ready to leave they were unanimous in the
opinion that the man who conceived the idea
that the prohibitionists in the legislature
could be reasoned into anythincwould better
devote the rest of his life to sawing wood.
Tbe members of tbe committee appointed
by the republicans of the legislature to con
fer with tbe delegations from tbe cities were
insulting in their manners , and gave the
delegates to understand without any delay
tbat they had come on a wile goose chase.
The conference , was held , however , and at
the close the housti committee went into
secret session to tall : tbe matter over. About
midnight tbe delegates were informed that
the hour was so late tbat it would be impos
sible to do anything before morning , and
something told the delegates tbat that was
simply a polite way the committee had of
saying tbat they might consider themselves
fired. The delegates left f jr their respective
homes about b o'clock tbe next morning.
Tnere were uboutseventy-flve presentfrom
other cities , although it was considerable of
an all-around surprise to find that for some
reason or other neither Burlington nor Sioux

bo heartily in sympathy with the movement ,

sain one of the delegates vesterday , "for
going to sU-ep until the'question bad been de
cided and then waking up to cry like a lot of
nhipped school boys. If we had made tbe
same effort to have tbe wrong rigntod three
months ago , and if tbe delegates to the state
republican convention bad shown any sort of
spirit , we would in all probability have col-
ten what wo wanted. As it U our ease is
settled fur the next two years at least. "

The March term of the United States dis

There will be a large criminal docket at

guage as "bootleggers. " The corridor * of
the government building are swarming with
men who bavo been brought to the city to

To whom It Mny Concern :
This is to certifv that I have boon a
constant sufferer for many years with
cntarrh. asthma and bronchial affec
tions of the throat , and tried all tha
uatent medicines and remedies I over
heard of , but with no success. I treated
with doctors in various parts of tha
country , but none of them could do mo
any good further than jjivlnp mo shop
temporary relief. I suffered nicht an
diy. : and continued to prow worse not
withstanding nil the medicine 1 hn.il
taken. I had almost civcn up mv case
as hopeless when 1 was informed b.v u
friena of Dr. C. Gee XVo , the Chinese
doctor , and advised to go and see him in
the nopcot pettinp relief at least , if not
a permanent cure for my trouble. I was
stow in makinp up my mind to make
such a radical change in my treatment ,
as 1 knew a trial with the Chinese doc
tor would brinp me , but I finally con
eluded to pive him a tri-jl. so I called at
his office with that intention. I lound
thp doctor a clever , entertaining pentle
man , thornuphly posted on my condi
lion , and it took only a vary short time
to convince me thai ho was the party I
was so lonp in search of. He told me
my case was curable , and that he could
cure me , and prepared me a snecial
treatment to suit my condition , and in
two weeks I was to much better that I
had the fullest confidence in the doctor's
ability and committed my case to his
treatment. I continued to grow batter
rapidly and am now entirely well. 1
owe my cure to Dr. C Goo Wo , and am
not as Same d to admit it. ladvisoall
who want relief from their troubles to
call ( wi Dr. C. Gee Wo. and they will ba
cured. For all particulars apply or
