Judge Tnornoll handed down a decision

pending in the district court for some years
past. Day got n Judgment for ? 2TOO , against
the depot company' by an agreement with
the directors of the company , George F.

confession of judgment had been duly mndo
and Day was already to levy on the depot
cite , , T. J. tivans , the receiver of the com
pany , backed by a number of
other members , commenced proceedings
to have tbo Judgment sot asldo
on the ground of fraud. They alleged
that Wilght and I'uscy had no ncht to con-
less Judgment , and that they had entered
into an unholy compact to boat the company.
They accordingly demanded a now trial and
had a writ of Injunction Issued to restrain
Day from levying on thu property. The mo
tion was submitted to Judge Thorncll at the
last term of court and taken under advise
ment. In his decision , rendcrea yesterday ,
he holds that there are no evidences of fraud
or collusion , and ho therefore overrules the
motion for a new trial , dissolves the Injunc

" .Ief.se . Carpenter Is drowned I" exclaimed
Clarence Anderson , a son of .1. Q. Anderssn ,
as ho reined up his horse in front of the po
lice station yesterday afternoon about 4
Young Carpenter was the only son of Mrs.
LI. Carpenter , who works at the Evans laun
dry. Ho went out to Mosquito crook yester
day with a number of other boys to go In
swimming. Thq swimming hole was not far
from the Chautamnui grounds , about four
miles east of the city. The boys were all
walking along the edge of'the creek , when
they came across an Inlet. In some way ,
none of the boys could say just how , Carpen
ter lost his looting and fell into the wrter ; ,
which was about sixteen fee * , deep. No ono
saw him fall , but ho was missed a moment
later and It was at once surmised that ho
had met with an accident.
Young Anderson was immediately dis
patched to the city to got help. Miriam and
William Stevens and Onlccr Murphy of the
police force , who are uncles of the drowned
boy , left with all possible haste for thosccno
of the drowning and commenced a system
atlc search for the body. From 5 o'clock
until 8o : ; ; the search went on without inter
ruption , and at last the body was brought to
the surface. It w.is brought to Estep's un
dertaking rooms , where an inquest will beheld
held this morning. The dead boy was only
1" years of age.

When the wheelmen selected ono ol
the beautiful groves in the Klein tract
for the site of their recent picnic it was
the lirst notice given the public that the
locality abounded in natural parks suit
able for picnics. A hundred or more
enthusiastic wheelmen have since beer
sounding the praises of the place ant :
public attention has been attracted to il
more than ovor. Since the bridging o :
the Oliautauqua creek and the opening
of the now reads all parts of the mag
nificent tract are accessible and manj
people drive out that way to enjoy the
beauty of the drive and the maguiliceiii
scenery. All the hillsides slope to the
southwest and cast , and from the tops ol
the wooded knolls Lake Manawa , Coun
cil L51uffn nnd Omaha are visible. The
tract is only a few minutes drive fron
the city , and tlio many bcauti
ful drives and exquisite views are
a revelation to the public , and oven to
people- who are familiar with the sylvan
beauty that clothes the hills arontu
Council Bluffs. The entire tract is a
paradise for gardeners , for whose convenience
venienco and profit it was laid out. The
surface slopes down Irom the sunny hill
sides , that could bo made to groan with
their loads of grapes with little cost of
time and money , to the rich and marvelously -
ously fertile bottom lands where fortunes
lie asleep. The tract embraces acres ,
and comprises every character of land
required for the successful culture of
fruits and vegetables. People are just
awakening to the fact that these gar
den lauda around Council Bluffs pay as
well as these of California or Florida ,
cost far less , can bo cultivated with loss
expense and bring returns from the lirst
year. Messrs. Day & Hess , the owners
of the tract , have cut it up into plats to
suit , from live to twenty acres. They
placed it on the market this spring ,
and have sold a great many tracts to
energetic men who are planting it to
fruits and vegetables. It is the only
available opportunity to get the best
garden lands In the west , and the prob
ability is that there will bo little loft
unsold by the end of the season.
The public has also made another discovery -
covery since the tract was opened , and
that is a spring almost equal in extent
and character to the Mynstor springs.
Grading for now roads has formed a
basin and the overflow Irom the spring
has made a beautiful little lake , halt
hidden by tall trees ,

The Held nay committee has about f30 in
its pocket. Such is the result of further ex-
animation of the finances. A rumor was sot
in motion by some ono to the effect that thn
management of the association has changed
Its mind about applying the proceeds of the
entertainment to the payment of the asso-
x-lution's debt to Secretary J. C , Uoso. C.
T. O nicer , ono of the board of directors , wan
seca about the matter yesterday , and
ho stated that the report was u
fabrication. The money is to bo paid

rumor * to the contrary notwithstanding
Bven had the board of directors anydeslro
to make nny different ttlspoillton of the
money on hand they could not do it without
a flagrant violation of their word. IJcpro-
mentations wcro made frym the start that
the purpose of the entertainment was to
urnlsh funds to pay off the secretary's back
alary , and it was with that understanding
hat a great many attended the meet and
offered prizes to the contestants. Mr.
Ofllccr'a statement above Is given for the
xirposo ol setting at rest all doubts on the
Chief bcanlan never knew until about mid
night Wednesday night how much ho looked
like a train robber , and the circumstances
under which the resemblance wan noticed
leave some doubt ns to whether the Joke Is
on him or on a certain motonnrm for the
Omaha and Council Dluffs Dridgo company.
A conductor on the motor line ran across
OfllccrVlor nt n late hour Wednesday night
and Informed him that ho suspected tlmt n
gang of men had laid their plans' to rob
him near the transfer. They all boarded
a Tilth avenue car and went as
far ns the corner of Twcnty-rirst street and
Eighth avcnuo , where they all alighted.
They had had nothing to say to ono another
during the trip and that fact , together with
their tough mugs , had led the conductor to
think that their presence boded him no good.
Chief Hcanlan and several other policemen
got ti rig and went to the place mentioned to
tlntl the suspected robbers. They ran across
the outfit in a saloon about midnight , and
managed to bag three of them. Scanlan
sent them up town in charge of the other
oniccrs while ho waited for a motor tram to
take him home. The motor finally hove In
sight and It was evident from the rate nt
which It was moving that the motorman
was using every particle of available power.
Scnnlnn planted himself by the side of the
track and waved his arms wildly in the
attempt to get the motorman to stop. Just
as the motor passcu the man In charge
seemed to recognize something "familiar
about Scanlan's face nnd ho stopped , but
the motor was going at such a rate that it
went nearly a block before it could be
brought to standstill.
"t wasn't going to stop for any man I
didn't know , " was his greeting as the chief
came putting alongside and climbed Into the
car. "I thought sure you were ono of these
fellows that were going to hold us up.1

Judge B. 10. Aylesworth and Herman
Schurz had an encounter In Justice Vlcn's
court yesterday on account of a motion to
dismiss the suit which Schurz , as attorney
for Amanda Hock , began in the name of the
state of Iowa to have Belle Clover lined and
imprisoned for keeping a house ot ill fame.
Aylesworth , who appeared for the Clover
woman , iilcd a motion to dismiss the
c.ise , and as grounds averred that the
suit was not brought in gooa faith ,
but for the purpose of extorting
money from his client. He claimed that the
prosecution had had a number of interviews
with the defendant In which they offered to
dismiss the suit , naming as the price of the
dismissal sums all the why from 81UO down
to ? ! ! . " ) . He further alleged that the informa
tion was never signed or sworn to by Mrs.
Koclc , and in fact that , there w.is no such
person as Amanda Hock. The motion was
taken under advisement by the court , and
the case was continued by agreement for one
week in order to allow time for the declsloi
to bo made.

Then there was a rumpus. Everybody
wanted to talk , and talk badly , too. Mr.
iMunro was quicker than his colleagues and
secured recognition , ille characterized the
Introduction of the 'resolution as nn act of
cowardice , with thq .attorney 1XU ( ) miles
away and not having an opportunity to de
fend himself. Ho ddslt'od ' that the resolu
tion bo not adoptedoinlil Mr. Council had
been given a fbanco t/o sot himself right be
fore the council. I.- . ,
Mr. Specht was nejctin order and he made-
n speech. While ho .thought that the attor
ney bad been derelict , in his duty , yet he did
not desire to sue any uuu condemned without
u hearing. To smootli.ovcrmatters he made
i motion , which was later adopted , that the
csolutlon bo referring.to the committee on
udiclary for investigation.
Mr. baunders tliOught the resolution
would bo all rightjf the. two last paragraphs
wore stricken out. " Biit.Mr. Elsasscr said in
such certain terms.tb'ijt' his resolution was
iot to bo tami > crod"wlth that no further
effort was made to do'so.
Then Mr. Elsaaser' made his little talk.
: Io did not consider it cowardice to cull
down u public oQlclal when ho had not per
formed his duty. Ho gave-Mr. Council a
lumber of raps for the part ho had taken in
permitting the paving case to go over until
Mr. Hascall , who Is oratoncally Inclined
on numerous occasions , was doubly so as
soon as ho could secure recognition. He
supported the resolution and urged its adop
tion. Ho waded into Mr. Council , nnd said
lie could no longer support his ofllcial acts
"after ho had witnessed the city attorney
deprive hundreds of luboringmen of employ
ment. " He did wrong when he permitted an
interloper to intervene in the paving rnse
and stipulated with him so that the matter
should go over until September. Mr. Has
call said that City Engineer Andrew Hose-
water was present in the supreme court
room at the tlmo that the agreement was
made nml that there coula be no doubt of the
fact that Mr. Council was responsible for
the case going over until September.
Assistant City Attorney Cornish was given
an opportunity to explain his views on the
matter. He said that the status of the case
was misunderstood and that Mr. Connell had
not entered into a stipulation to permit the
case to co over until boptcoibcr. Mr. Con
nell was to get his briefs In by Friday and
the court was to consider thorn , nnd Mr.
Hall was to have until Monday to file his
briefs , the court then to pass upon them
within u few days. Instead , the court had
misunderstood and permitted the case to go
over until September for an opinion.
Mr. Elsasser's resolution was not adopted ,
but it was referred to the Judiciary commit

Perils of Niivlgiitlon on tlio I'
I looked down the prccinico on the
cdfjo of which wo wore lmngin < , r , Bays u t
writer in Lippinoott's , ami as the un
coiled luiwscr snapped like a rotten
thread the launch was hurled back into
the charning waves. Ono minute wo
wore threatened with destruction in the
mad whirl of u ( riant sucking whirlpool ,
and the next MIW us spinning otV ut u
tangent to bring up against u more ter
rifying wave , that seemed hont on end
ing our career. But the Intrepid rode
the water like a duck , . .and after every
assault of the Hood bobbed up un
daunted for another encounter.
Crunching In her bottom , and bailing
the water , as it How over the gunwales
in drenching spray or in massive waves ,
with our hats as well as anything else
we could get hold of , wo waited for the
final toss which should end our danger
and send us bodily into tlio Hood , to bo
tossed about , swollen and bruised , tlio
dead prey for myriads of feathered
For more than live hours wo were the
shuttlecock for this maniac Hood , which ,
as it swept up stream against the pow
erful current of the mighty river , backed
up the descending waters until oven the
highest banks were Hooded. The largest
trees fell victims to the raging torrent ,
and the tall banks were washed away in
such a manner that later travelers
scarcely know the river again.
"Look ahead1' ! cried Franklin , who
was holding on to the wheel with a grip
of death. "For God's sake , pray , lads !
Tlio end has come ! Look sharp ! If wo
brave this danger it will he by a mira
cle ! " and there ahead of us , looming up
out of the middle of the river , rose u
large island whoso sides were fully
twenty feet high.
The mad torrent was making straight
for this obstruction , and , while wo were
being carried onward with tlio rapidity
of lightning , two of us managed to crawl
aft to Franklin's assistance. Grasping
the wheel , wo strained in united effort
and succeeded in holding the launch
"head on'1 to the Hood.
Every eye was on the lookout for
whatever Vantage wo could gain , and
when Franklin shouted to us in a voice
made hoarse by desperation , "Put
her hard over now ! With me , boys ,
and perhaps wo can escape , " wo tugged
and pulled until every chord in em
bodies seemed to bo on tlio rack. A
roar , a weird horrible shriek , such as
none of us over wanted to hear aiain ,
broke over the tumult of boiling waters ,
a shriek of angry doliunco and the
mad Hood was hurled back from tlio
island , one-half on each side , its force
The command of our wheelman alone
saved UP , for with tlio parting waters
wo shot into tlmt side which washed
over the powerful channel of tlio river ,
and in another moment wo were swept
down stream with the rapidity of a
streak of sunlight. At flrct stern on ,
wo wore fortunately able to swing our
boat head to with the current in u short
time , and Irom then on wo had no
trouble- keep our launch clear of the
threatened collisions with trees and

James Gordon Bennett's rapid re
covery is good news to architects and
builders , for had the accident proved
fatal it would have stopped the present
twenty-story building scheme. The
premium Bennett offered for jlans leads
to keen rivalry , and the building , when
finished , will be one of the architectural
wonders of the present ago.
If Uonnott does not drive his tall
building project with all possible
rapidity ho may bo distanced by that
grand scheme which will cover the old
Atlantic Garden ( foot of Broadway ) with
a business structure of twenty-six
stories. The lot , whoso area is three-
quarters of un acre , will bo entirely
covered and the building will ribo
square twenty stories with a six-story
lower in the center tliun making the
whole height twenty-six stories. The
estimated cost is M.UOO.OOO , nnd a com
pany will bo formed for the purpose ,
the pro'ont Now York postmaster being
ono of its most ardent promoters.
The la'lost ' building at present is tlio
I'ulit7.or , which is JI7f > feet nbovo the
street. It cost a million , hut is highly
tirotltaldc. It was a wonder when built ,
but Bennett's steel building will excel It
as far as it exceeded all predecessors.
During my boyhood , says a correspond
ent of the Rochester Democrat and
Chronicle , it was rare to see n four-story
building , for the ascent to such a height
was too laborious. The invention of the
elevator , however , created n revolution
which 1ms extended until , Instead of
four stories , we now hnvo ten mid oven
twelve , with the expectation of nn in
crease which may reach oven twenty
stories. The use of steel renders the
latter possible , the structure indeed
being made of that material , with an
miter wall of stone. The Pulitzer build
ing was tlio first thus constructed , and
its success will lead to still higher ef

IIoMr.sTiui ) . Pa. , July 0. Wild rumors
went around last night. Today Is the anni
versary of the Carnegie strikers bnttlo with
the Plnkcrtons , and It was given out that it
would bo commemorated by nn attcu.pt to
burn tlio mills and that othcrllko Incendiary
acts would bo committed ; that the mllltla
were under arms , etc. Consequently the
streets wcro thronged all night , very many
not going to bed at all. It appears that the
fears wore entirely groundless , however , as
the mills wcro In full operation today and
there was nothing unusual In appearances.
A picnic In a grove , a few speeches this
evening and flowers on the graves of those
killed in the encounter were the only com
memorations of the event.
