NEWS FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS
J. J. Shea Declines the Nomination for Supreme
premo Court Reporter ,
HAD NOT SOUGHT THE NOMINATION
Ho Could Not AlTnrd to Tiilic tin
Onicr , but rrnmliivnt I'ollllcliinn
Mute tlio I ) ( nioirncy limp No 11 opt a
of Currying tlio Unction ,
J. J. Shoa of tills city has sent Chair
man Fletcher Howard of the democratic
state central 'committee a letter In
which he positively declines to make the
rnco for the office of supreme court reporter
to which he was nominated by this week's
convention. In the letter he says the nomi
nation \\as given him without his Knowledge
or concent nnd that he was In no way con
sulted about It. Ills private business | s In
such shape that he could not serve If elected
and lie cannot spend the time to make such
a canvass of the state as he thinks should
be made by a man who accepted the honor
nnd the responsibility of a nomination , so
that he will under no circumstances allow
hli nnme to be used.
The nomination of Mr. Shea was a great
surprise to the people of this city , because
no one had e\cr heard that he was making
any effort to secure a nomination , or thai
he even had a remote desire for It. Since
the convention Is over , however , the fact
has been developed that a number of the
nominations were made on very short notice.
A prominent democrat was talking to some
republican friends shortly after his return
from DCS Molnes and he let the cat out of
the bag In this wipe "The fact Is , nobody
was looking for a nomination on the demo
cratic ticket this jcar. It wasn't a question
of who should have the honor , but or whom
we could get to take It. " He Intimated
finite strongly that no democrat was looking
particularly for an election this year , nnd
the fact that Mr. Shea secured the nomina
tion without his most Intimate friends Und
ine out that he was In the race does not
necessarily Imply that he did any very
"smooth work before the convention.

The two Shoemaker boys , who were ar
rested with a boy named Davis for assault
ing Burt Clark , were discharged In police
court yesterday morning. According to the
story told by the Shoemaker boys the four
met on the street and the Shoemakers de
manded that Clark take back something he
had said about them and Davis. Ho agreed
to take It back so far as they were con
cerned , but refused to take It back as to
Davis. This sort of a compromise did not
suit them and they all struck out after Clark
and chased him up to the police station ,
where he stayed all night. They went to
police court for two mornings to stand trial ,
but Clark did not show up either time , and
Judge McGee finally discharged all three
Mrs. II. B. Parkinson had a hearing on
the charge of committing an assault and
battery on Dwlght Corlies , the 14-year-old
son of a neighbor. All the parties live on
Bcnton street. From the evidence It ap
peared that Corlies had been In the habit of
of Mrs. Parkinson
abusing the 8-year-old boy
and the latter put a stop to It temporarily
the other day by boxing his ears. The evi
dence of a school teacher who was expected
to testlry that It always took four teachers
to administer corporeal punishment to him ,
was shut out. Judge McGee thought Mrs.
Parkinson had considerable reason for tak
ing the law into her own hands and dis
charged her. About half of the First ward
was present at the trial as witnesses on one
side or on the other.

The good story that was published to the
world as an illustration of the fearful heat
here a week ago last Thursday , to the ef
fect that the block paving in front of the
Grand hotel caught fire from the sun's rays ,
was battered up a little , though not entirely
knocked out , by the inconsiderate action of
the elements yesterday. Although the tem
perature was very comfortable all day long ,
the paving caught fire In two places In front
of the hotel Instead qf only one. A little
investigation s' owed that the cciuex windows
of plate glass In front of the hotel were re
flecting the sun's rays on the pavement In
such a way as to act like a largo sun glass
and the pavement lay smoldering away
until it finally got hot enough to break Into
flames. As a remedy for the block paving
nuisance It has been suggested that the ad
jacent property owners get their paving In
sured against fire and then put circular
windows In their houses.

BLOCK BURNED AT MARION
Many Business Houses Destroyed in an Iowa
< t. * \ '
WATER PRESSURE WAS INSUFFICIENT
Cedar Knplcls Department Called to the
Sccuo but Little Could Do Douo to
Save Any of tlio Threatened
CEDAR RAPIDS , la. , Aug. 3. ( Special
Telegram to The Dee ) The most destructive
conflagration In the history of Marlon broke
out about 4 o'clock this morning In the gas
plant in the center of a block of business
houses on the north Bide of the park , and
before the names were gotten under control
the entire block had been swept out of ex
istence , entailing a loss of 1120,000. The
Cedar Rapids fire department was asked for
aid and sent two carts and twenty-five fire
men , but before they could arrive almost the
entire block was In ruins. The water pres
sure was Insufficient when the fire first
broke out , or it might have been controlled
before much damage had been done. Seeing
the block was doomed , the people set to
work to save the goods , and In some In
stances nearly entire stocks were carried to
places ot safety.

llfty private telegrams that passed between
Henry Stivers , Ed Hunter , Judge Klnne ,
Charley Fullen , W. W. Wllmer and Con
gressman Hayes , relative to the postofllce
fight In this city , has created an almost
riotous feeling on the part of the eminent
democrats concerned , andthe ranks of the
local democracy are all torn up with angry
dlesonslons , commotions nnd criminations.
There Is ono question wfujch they all unlto
In asking , and that Is : "How did Elboeck
get possession of the telegrams ? " They do
not question the statements contained In
them , but concentrate all their energies In
a desperate effort to l arri from what source
Colonel Elboeck obtained the tell tale mes
sages. As a preliminary 'step , Hunter and
Stivers have taken th'0fvyarpath ' after scalps
and have opened hostllluc 'by accusing Man

employed In the Western * Union office of hav
ing betrayed confidence and given their tele

Antelope Crop 1'rospoct * .
BRUNSWICK , Neb. , Aug. 1. ( Special to
The Bee. ) This country * aa vliltod by a
heavy rain yesterday. It was followed by
hall , but not heavy enough to damage crops.
Corn In the northern part of Antelope

five to forty bushels to the acre. The late
rains have been a blessing to corn in this
section , and with an occasional local shower
northern Antelope county will have as good
a crop as It has had for years. The south
ern part of the county , however , Is almost
past redemption and corn stalks are being
cut for fodder.
A Cure for Chronic IJliirrlioca.
I had been troubled with chronic diar
rhoea for over a year when I received a
sntall botle of Chamberlain's Colic , Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy , which I used and it
gave mo great relief. I then procured a
60-cent bottle and took about two-thlrda of
It , and was cured. I have taken some twice
since when I had a loosness come on and It
stopped It at once. I nope It will help
others as It helped me. I feel very thankful
to Mr. Stearns , the druggist , for telling me
of this remedy and shall be glad to have
this letter published. S. C. Weeks , Melrose ,
