Much Valuable Property ,
After Srpnrutlnn of Many Yenrs from Her

Chiliim a Sluiro of It An
Interfiling Cnie.
A tult was commenced In the district
court yesterday In which the ownership of
about ? , ' 0XM ( ) worth of property is Involved ,
ntid the circumstances which cave rise to
the litigation present a peed ninny facts of
interest , ( jcorgo Herbert , a resident of
Montana , is the plalntitT , and some trouble
between himself and wife , who died In 1835 , is
at the bottom of the present difllculty. Airs.
Catherine Herbert lived in Council Blurts
for a great many years and was proprietress
of the St. Louis hotel , located at the corner
of Main street and Ninth avenue. She made
considerable money out of her hotel business
nnd Invested it as fast as she made it in city
property , which steadily rose in value.
In 1885 she died and the property nil went
to her children , She had not lived with her
husband for moro than twenty years before
her death , and many of her most intimalo
friends did not oven know that she had such
a commodity In her possession. After her
death the children disposed of almost all of
the property to John Limit , who In turn dis
posed of a part of it to his wlfo and the rest
to other parties. It was supposed that she
was divorced from her , and right
hero is otio of the peculiarities of the caso.
I'cciillltr I'oiiturea uf tile Cusn.
Early In the 80's she filed a petition In the
district court asking for n divorce. It ran
along for about n year , and finally the court
record has an account of Its dismissal. There
is nothing further on the records m the mat
ter until in M'ircli , 188-1 , when suddenly Micro
Is the record uf adccieo of divorce In tliocaso
of Catherine Herbert against George Herbert ,
which had been dismissed more than a year
boforo. The decree Is written on nbout
a quarter of n page , which had ap
parently been loft between two other de
crees , and the difference in handwriting and
the color of the Ink botwcun it and the two
on either side of it seem to throw some
doubt uuon its genuineness.
Herbert is now making an effort to recover
his dower Interest of one-third of the prop
erty , and iilcd several petitions in court in
which ho makes S. J. Lindt , J. W. Squire ,
Henry CotTCen , Clay & Forrest , Slack 1'eter-
son and Johannclto and John Under defend
ants. Ho claims that ho was never
served with any notice of the pendency of
the divorce suit , that there was never any
petition iiled , and that the decree of the
court , upon which the defendants base their
claim to the property , was void , the court
not having any jurisdiction in the matter
until the suit had been properly instituted.
Cliilm of the Children.
The children who deeded the property to
Lindt also claim that tlioy were induced in
one way or another to part with their inter
est in their mother's property for a price far
below its actual value. Their portion , how
ever , is gene beyond recall , for they deeded
it away of their own accord.
The property involved in the suits is scat
tered about in all parts of the city and some
of it has become qulto valuable during the
years that have intervened since it went
into the hands of its present owners.
Charles Jonra , it Saloon Kcopcr , Charged
with the .Murder ol Itellu MoUlllnn.
Bella McMillan , who commonly goes bj
the name of Hello Cross , was shot at 1 o'clock
this morning in the Phoenix saloon , 803 South
Main street , Council Bluffs. She has been
one of the Inmates of "Tho Ark" on Pierce
street for the past six months , itid for several
years has been the mistress of Charles Jones ,
proprietor of thoPhounix.
The woman and Jones wcro alone in the
saloon after midnight. Suadenly there was
a yell from Jones and the boys in the online
house next door heard pounding on the door' '
On going down Jones told them the woman
had shot herself. She was found lying in
side the salooa dead with a bullet hole in tha
right braast. It was supposed at lirst to be
u case of suicide , but several suspicious cir
cumstances led the police to make an in
vestigation , which resulted in the arrest ol
Jones on the charge of murder ,
A postmortem , held this morning , showei
that the bullet had passed through tin
heart in a downward direction , lodging ncui
the surface Just below the loft should o
blado. Medical authorities claim tin
woman would not naturally have hold tin
gun in a position it must have been hold ii
order for the bullet to talto that course.
Powder marks on the woman's right hnm
led to the belief that Jones held the revolve
and that she tried to seize it just as tie flrei
at her.
When the firemen arrived at the scene
Just after the shooting , Jones had the re
volvcr in his possession and had taken i
npart. Ho explained it by saying that he
was afraid Hello would shoot him aftci
shooting herself , and took it to pieces si
that she might not kill him.

WASHINGTON , Aug. 19. A dozen or
moro partisans on either side of the
senate chamber are preparing lor a rod
hot scrimmage at an oarlv day ever the
pension question. The fight will bo pre
cipitated upon Senator Gallinger's reso
lution inquiring of tbo commissioner of
pensions w'hether bo has conformed to
the law in dropping a largo number of
pensioners from the rolls without a
hearing. There are a great many men
in the senate , possibly two-thirds of that
body , who believe that there is no War
rant in law or practice which will jus
tify the commissioner of pensions or tlio
secretary of the interior in dropping
pensioners from the roll upon suspicion
that the soldiers are not entitled to the
pensions they were receiving.
Tlio extraordinary number of pen
sioners who have been dropped from the
rolls recently has attracted the atten
tion of friends of pensioners in congress ,
and it is expected that tbo question will
come before the house as soon as that
body disposes of the hilvor problem.
There will be some very sharp partisan
utterances when the question comes un
der debate. It is said that an effort
will bo made to adopt a joint resolution
providing that the pensioners shall not
be dropped from the rolls until it has
been proved that they are unlawfully
drawing pensions , and that they cannot
jo taken from the rolls pending an In
vestigation into the merits of theii

committee on pensions , is bearing the

Prom the earliest dawn' of civilization
until this present year of enlightenment
every now thine has had to run the gaunt
let , surrounded by multitudes that envy or
self-interest has turned into pitiless enemies.
In the beginning of the orn of provident In
dividuality , life insurance had to withstand
tltotlrelcss and vindictive assaults of en
emies from nil sides. Churches thundered
ctathamics ngulnst It , , uul cursed the sav
ings it provided for widows and orphans ns
"blood money , " nnd people who accepted its
bcnclits did so with the loss of caste nnd
popular respect. Hut life insurance be
came mi established fact nnd princi-
Die. Improvements followed , cheapening
the cost of Us bcticilts , in the
shape of mutual and assessment companies
nnd the same old line of enemies were nr
rayed npinst them , led this time by the Ufa
companies themselves , who had scarcely
emerged from their own travails. Mutual
and assessment companies in turn became
moro liberal In character , tind the earlier
companies Joined in the hue and cry nealnst
them. And thus It has been down to the
establishment of toutlno bond companies ,
and the whole crowd of prior organizations ,
founded upon exactly the same principles ,
that had como up to their present state
through the sorest tribulations , joined In
the crusaUo against them , and at the pres
ent time wo are treated to misrepresentation
In the newspapers , and attacks from every
source whore an enemy can find cnlodgmcnt.
The stupendous rapidity with which the
principle sprung Into popular favor , the fact
that it gave the same bcnclits at n cost that
was ridiculously disproportionate to the
sums exacted by tUo old-lino system ,
forced all those organizations through
the necessity of self-proscrvation , to
assume an aggressive front. They reasoned
that if these new systems wcro permitted to
stand the day of doom had como for their
oxvn high-priced protection. This is the
true solution of the present intensely bitter
persecution. It is not in the interest of the
dear people whom they are trying to protect ,
but wholly in the interest of the dear com
panies and systems , which they are trying
to save.
Take the following statistics from the
insurance year book , giving for a period of
twenty-six years the average cost of carryIng -
Ing $1,000 life insurance per year :
Equtublu I.lfo $41.00
Now York Life 42.00
Mutual hire 73.00
Nortnwohiern I.lfo 30 IIO
Sluto Mutual 00.00
liorkshlru , 4'J.OO
The cost to the companies for maturing
this by the payment of all death losses and
indemnities , ranges from $3 to SSO per * 1,000 ;
the expenses , the payment of all salaries
and operating cosls , average from $7 to $ M ,
leaving an unaccounted-for balance of moro
than io per $1,000 per year , which has been
unnecessarily exacted from the policy
holder. Now take right in this connection
some moro intorestins statistical facts from
the same unquestioned authority , the year
book , which is the sworn statements of the
companies to the auditors of states : All the
companies doing , business in New York ,
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts , wrote
from 1800 to 18'lt ) ' 6iWymr policies , which
were received by 'the insured and paid on.
Of that amount there was lapsed and every
dollar paid forfeited to the companies the
enormous sum of 2,1)10,743 , ) policies. These
forfeitures poured into the coffers of these
companies in tl.eso three states the
stupendous sum _ of two biltiun , nine
huiiilntl mul ( itjMecii tnillioii , fifty-three
tioiiMiiiJ , Jlvc hiiHilrctl aiul Jt'ti/-ieveti ( < ljl-
/fira moro than the cotiyiltte oo t of the rebellion ,
more than the nutiunnl rtlcbt Jnvt ever been. In
addition to tjiis incomprehensible sum thcro
was forfeiteU of the same -policies by sur
render and acceptance of partially paid up
insurance nearly 2,000,000,000 moro. or in
actual llgurcslT81,043,348. And this only
in thrco states of the union. Is it any won
der that these companies are fighting a sys
tem that threatens to become so popular ?
Is it any wonder they can pay f50,000 a year
salaries to 2,500 men and then pension them
when they are out of oftlco at 15,000 a year
for life ? Is it any vender they wrecked the
Iron Hall and scores of other kindred organ
izations , and are trying to wreck other sys
tems that would have paid every obligation
of the companies in the three states named
at less than 500 per cent of the cost ?
The lapses are chief sources of profit in
all these companies. The figures given
above show that 43.85 per cent of all these
policies lapsed. The statistical history of
later years show that no ono half of the
policies taken out are carried to maturity ,
and it is with knowledge of these facts that
bond company steps in and by using the law
af averages finds that It can guarantee pay
ment of ? 1,000 at a total outlay to holder of
less than $ iOO. And this is oven less than
what the old line companies promise to do.
From 1SST to 18'Jl the Now York life paid
S10 , 40,000of claims that had paid into it
but $0,4127,502. giving the policy holders S3
for every $ naid. In the Fidelity of Phila
delphia , from 1879 to IS'JI , its claimants
were given $12 for every $1 they
paid to the company. The Mutual
Ilcscrvo of Now York , for ton years
the amount given was $14 to $1. In individ
ual cases this runs up from 800 to 500 per
cent. This Is not an earned profit in anv
sense , but it is the result of the application
of n given principle. For example , you pay
Siforafiro insurance policy of $1,000 , on
your goods ; they burn , and you receive
$1,000 for the f'J paid. Your payment did
not earn that for you but it secured it to you

attractions at the World's fair next week
will bo the parade of the favorite horses of
Emperor William of Germany nnd those of
the czar of ( timsia. Each day thcso burses
will bo led through the principal streets of
tbo White City by liveried grooms.
{ Numerous complaints have been made to
the World's fair officials on account of the
brutality displayed at the suudancc hold by
the Quncltahl Indians last night , n ronort of
which was contained in this morning's 'dis
patches. Inspitoof the protests , the per
formance will bo repeated on the lagoon
between Machinery hall and Agricultural
building next Thursday evening.
The orchestra ot 114 players , which wcro
sent notice last Saturday to quit playing to
morrow , have sent a protest to Director
General Davis , saying they have
been engaged for the entire period
of tbo exposition ; that they intend to pre
sent themselves every morning for duty and
expect their pay Just the same. Colonel
Davis sent the protest to the council nf ad
ministration and that body probably will
refer It to the directory. It was the direc
tory Which ordered the discharge of the
musicians. The musicians have engaged nn
There was rare sport on the lagoon this
afternoon. Swimming matches between
natives of the many villages winding un
with au interKatlonal swim was the program.
Turns. Dahomc.vnns , Samoans and North
Americans took part , The Dahomoyans
proved themselves by far the best water
does. A man named Santon Coyohl , the
Dahomoynn contestant , won the race. The
prize was a double gold eagle , which the
owner of Santon appropriated. The D.t-
homoyans are slaves in their native country.
The good people In general are scandalized
today that a prize fight actually took pheo
last night in the World's fair grounds. The
managers of the grounds ot course know
nothing about It. The light took place In
the stock pavilion. The principals wcro
Patsy McDonald , an Irishman , and , lee
Young , an Englishman. A lot of soldiers on

ing of unemployed workingmen at Golden
Rule hall on llivlngton street. This after
noon the meeting was addressed by Emma
Goldsmith , the wife of Bergman , the man
who tried to kill Henry C. Frick ot Pitts-
Diirg. Her speech was of a highly inflamma
tory character. Shu told the men if they
wanted broad to go and got It , meaning they
should loot bakeries , or whatever they
wanted to .oot.
A committee was appointed to arrange for
a parade of workingmen throughout the
work quarters of the city. Another com
mittee was appointed to procure bread for
the idle men. One of the principal speakers
nt this meeting was nn anarchist named
Blnnck , who was rabid In his utterances , and
inspired bis hearers to a remarkable state
of excitement.
Meetings wore hold in two halls , ono on
Allen street and the Golden Rule hall , this
evening. The hungry men kept three
tenders in Golden Kulo hall busy , and the
bartenders In the other hall had all they
could do.
Emma Goldsmith distributed poaches to
the men In Golden Rule hall. One wild lookIng -
Ing mini spoke in part as follows at the
Allen street hall : "Homombor Chicago ,
where they hanged men. Why ? Because
they were hungry. Yesterday the dirty
police arrested men. Why ? Because they
were hungry. Be calm. If you attempt to
got what you want the police will como and
turn the hose on you. "
A shudder went through the hall.
. The bartenders meanwhile raked In the
"Do not fly the next time , " said an excited
