Anderssn , as ho reined up his horse in front of the po lice station yesterday afternoon about 4 oVlocir. 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. A ( iurilt-nur'H I'iir.iilUr. 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 , \Viinlvil ut Central City.

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 over to Secretary lioae , and not usoj iu bulKUuif ucvr baiu roouu or anything else , 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 subject. Train llohbcm. 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 Two of the other members of the gan wcro captured early yesterday morning , and nil live were slated with vagrancy. They will have their trials in police court this morning. I rot"ctlnp ; Hello Clover. 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 September. 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 tee for investigation. Mr. Wheeler said ho desired that paving bo delayed no longer than necessary , and ho Introduced n resolution to that effect. The resolution was adopted and provided for the retaining of Frank T. Hansom nnu directing him to ascertain if the court will not convene specially to pass upon the paving caso. Thill li.irkor Illll. City Attorney Council's opinion regarding the legality ot the asphalt repair contract of the Barber Asphalt company , was read. He finds tlmt the temporary injunction case of the company restraining the city from abro- gatlngtho contract , is still on the docket , and as soon as the September term Is opened will notice the same for trial. Mr , Connell believes the contract can bo abrogated after the inluni'tion case is passed uponIf the city so deii 'es. The communication vras referred to the committee on Judiciary. Treasurer Bolln recommended that in view of the fact that 1.6 bids were received for the SIWI.OOO sewer ntid paving bondsthat the rate of Interest bo increased to Ji per cent , and that the bonds bo offered for sale In August at the Hum the district grading and paving bonds are offered. City Electrician .Cowglll nsltcd for two weeks leave of absqncc. and that caused a row. Mr. Hasi-all slid the city was "going to the dogs" whilu-tho city attorney was away. Ho was tircd'bf having oflluials and employes go away injd' draw pay , wnllo the citl/.cus were sulferuig on account of their absence. i ! Mr. Elsasscr dlilnlt wnnt to see any dis crimination shown : * uMr , Connell received two months leave cf.nbscnce . on pay at i M a month while Mr. Uowgill only wanted two weeks nnd ho saw jib reason in making ilsh of one and fowl of another.

" The plat of the proposed southeast park wus received and approved , after a number of protests to the proposed Ninth street boulevard to the park were read. Mr. Hascull objected to the protest Mug given weight. The protests were filed.

Perils of Niivlgiitlon on tlio I' Mrciuii. 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 scavengers. 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 almost broken. 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 wreckage. lilt lliillcilnKi In New York. 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 forts. tint H Ycnr Ago Toil.ty the Ilnttlo with thn I'inUrrtons U'lm I'oiiuhi. IIoMr.sTiui ) .

It appears that the fears wore entirely groundless , however , as the mills wcro In full operation today and there was nothing unusual In appearances.

Don't do these things , says the Janncss- Miller Magazine , GRIME IN HIGH PLACES ! It is not strange that some people do wrong through ignorance , others from a failure to investigate as to the right or wrong o a matter. But it is strange , that individuals nnd firms , who are fully aware of the rights of others , will per sist in perpetrating frauds upon them.
