HEAVY REAL ESTATE LITIGATION
Creditor * for Small Sunn Anxious to Force
n SiMtlRinnnt llumtroili of Acrrs
of Suburban 1'roprrly In
Attachment proceedings were begun In the
ftflct court yesterday afternoon Involving
bout $45,000 worth of the property of John
' . Paul anl the Union Land and Improve-
cnt company. E. W. Nash Is the principal
ttachlng creditor , his claims amounting to
3S.OOO , wlillo Flnlcy Burke , attorney for
'aul ' and the Improvement company , has
alms amounting to more tfian $5,000.
Paul Is well known In Council Bluffs and
inaha as a hustler In real estate circles ,
'or ' several years past he has been engaged
n accumulating property in the northwestern
art of the city , with a view to establishing
nanufacturlng enterprises on a large scale.
The Improvement company , of which he Is
resident , lias about 600 acres , Including
early all the land In the city limits north of
lie levy , and Paul himself has a third Inter
ist In town lots , which altogether comprise
bout 110 acres. About a year ago a large
mount of town property was bought up by
Ini In the names of several people , and
.hero were signs of a boom , which , for a
me , set the real estate men all agog. It
fas reported that a contract was signed by
Men an enormous packing plant , with stock
'ard ' attached , was to be built north of the
evy. Options were seized on all of the prop-
rty as rapMly as possible. But the stock
'ards and packing houses failed to materlal-
ze , and real estate has resumed Its normal
condition. For several months past Paul has
n In Chicago , and only occasional rumors
have been vouchsafed the public 04 to his
In the principal suit commenced by Nash ,
o alleges that the Union Land and linprove-
nent company borrowed $30,000 from him ,
giving two notes of $15,000 each , In Novem
er , 1891. The total amount due Is $30,810 ,
ncludlng unpaid Interest.
FOIICKD A SETTLEMENT.
In the second suit Najh alleges that Paul
borrowed from the Omaha Loan and Trust
company $7,837 In 1891 , giving as security
three notes , all of which are long past due
ind unpaid. The only security he had , be
sides Paul's signature , was a few shares of
mprovement company's slock. He has been
.triable to get any settlement out of Paul or
any further security and so ho has taken
summary measures. He states that he would
'navo been willing to give unlimited time If
. 'aul had agreed to secure the notes by mort
gages on his real estate , but that he has re
fused to do so.
Flnley Burke appears , as plaintiff In two
suits , one against Paul Individually and the
other against the company. In the first he
alleges that In October , 1894 , a contract was
enteroj Into by which he agreed to perform
certain services for Paul , In the way of se
curing options on land located on "the Isl
and , " northwest of the city , and looking after
such lawsuits as might arise in connection
with them. Paul agreed to pay him $2,000
for his services ns foan as the land was ready
to be conveyed to him and $3,000 when the
suits were terminated. He has failed to do
either one. In addition , ho says he Is the
owner of no'ei and mortgages executoJ by
Andrew Olson for $2,700. Paul a.keel to be
allowed to use them temporarily as collateral
for not more than two weeks. But the two
weeks have been Indefinitely extended , Paul
has converted the papers to his own use and
now refutes to return them. He has also paid
out $57G at Paul's request , and of this sum
has received only $200 In payment.
DETAILS OF THE SECOND SUIT.
In the second suit. In which the Improve
ment company appears as defendant , ho says
that ho was engaged by the company ,
through Paul , Its president , to act as attorney
for the corporation from April 1 , 1S9I , to
October 1 of the same year at a salary of
$2,000. From the latter date to January 1
the sum of $250 was agreed upon as his re
muneration , and from January 1 , 1895 , on he
was to receive $410 a month. On this con
tract he says there Is now due $3,250 , be
sides what Is uuo on the contract with refer
ence to "tho Island. "
In the 'alter ' suit the attachment Is suej
out on the ground that the company has al
ready disposed of a part of Its property to
defraud Its creditors and Is about to dispose
of the rest , while In the former the ground
Is merely non-residence of Paul.
In explaining his action Burke states that
of his own accord he would not have suc3
out an attachment. He received a call rom
Nash's attorney , L. Croofoot of Omaha , the
other day and was Informed that he was
about to commence attachment proceedings ,
and was Invited to go In. In order to keep
from holding the sack whllo the rest got the
game , he had to accept the Invitation , and
will thus come In second on the division of
the property , should a division result. Burke ,
, however , has the greatest confidence In the
final outcome of the real estate manipula
tions In the northwestern part of the city and
thinks this litigation may be the means of
hurrying up matters by Inducing Paul to
accept some of the offers he Is known to have
for his property , rather than hold out for n
fabulous sum ,

L. Looman , who has been living at the
corner of Union and Voorhls streets , Is In a
peck of trouble on account of the sudden and
unannounced departure of his wife from the
city In company with her cousin. Henry Phil
lips , and her brother and his wife. Mr. and
Mrs. George Potter. Last Saturday evening
lie came home from' ' down town and his wife
asked him to go back after some bread. He
did EO , and when he returned found the house
had been cleaned out of what little furnltun
It contained and all four were missing. Sal
vation Walker , who returned yesterday from
Onawa , where he had been attending a camr
meeting , told Looman that he saw the party
near Little Sioux , with a single rig with
which they had left the city. Looman Imme
diately made arrangements for a horse and
buggy and will go to Dakota this morning tc
look for his wife. Mrs. Looman lived Ir
Pueblo before her marriage and her brother
has arrived here from that place recently ,
Phillips has been employed at the Revere
house as a cook. Looman has been oul
of work for some time and has
been hardly able to furnish his wife
and her little 9 weeks'-old-baby with enough
of the necessaries to keep them alive , He
says the two men have been telling his wife
that she could do much better In Dakota , and
as she has but little will of her own have
prevailed upon her to try the world with
them. He has filed an Information against
Ph'lllps ' , charging him with stealing the good !
from the house.

A meeting of the Merchants and Manufac

with reference to the proposed leasing of th <

resolution was adopted ;

power to mnko his venture n profitable one ,
and to patronize as individuals nil first-
class attractions that nro presented ,
A committee was appointed , consisting of
Mayor Cleaver , n. W. Hart. William Moore ,
George F. Wright and F. T. True , to circulate
the resolutions among the citizens for signa
tures. The committee Is not expected to
raise any funds , but merely to ask the sup
port of the citizens , which will undoubtedly
be cheerfully given Alton will take care of
the financial part himself. He has not leased
the house , and says he will not do so until
the committee has finished Its work. He Is
ell satisfied with the cplrlt shown by the
lerchants and Manufacturers' association
nd the citizens with whom he has talked ,
nd he has no hesitancy In saying that If the
ommltteo meets with the success he antlcl-
ates he will take the house and do his best
oward giving the people of Council Bluffs
first-class place of amusement.
\Vhcro I.mll.n Are Delighted.
There Is no locality In Council Bluffs at
he present time that has more fascination
or the ladles than the big establishment of
10 Durfee Furniture company. It Is one of
he largest retail furniture houses In the
tate , covering three floors 100 feet long and
orty wide. It Is packed from top to bottom
Ith the finest product of the furniture
nakers , and the newest Ideas of the day.
\mong the beautiful things are some rnag-
Iflcent mahogany rockers , and red birch
ockcrs , so nearly like mahogany that you
an scarcely tell the difference. They are
eautles that would delight any lady. Nov-
Itles In couches and divans upholstered In
Ilk brocatelle , corduroy and leather , parlor
ultcs In oaks exquisitely carved and up
olstered In silk brocatelle , and damask ;
arved mahogany chairs In silk Scotch frieze ,
gold leaf chairs and brtc-a-brac holders are
few of the choice novelties. Among the
peclal parlor suits are some carved red
Irch In silk damask that bear tags marked
35 , when you confidently expected to see
75 , and carved Inlaid mahogany suits In
Ilk damask nt the same astonishing figure ,
fou realize when you look at the goods and
ee the prices that the young men mean
vhat they say when they announce that they
vnnt to make a million dollars , but want to
iiako It off a million people. Other novel-
les nnd roynl beauties are Turkish chairs In
lamask and leather. Among the couches is
a curly birch back , with carved panels and
nk frame , richly upholstered and only
narked $20 , a leather couch seven feet Ions
and a yard wide , olive green color , market ]
; 45 , that would last forty-five years In dally
use ; brass and enameled bedsteads , dining
able of quarter sawed oak and piano finish ,
'oldlng beds In quarter oak and red birch ,
music stands and corner pieces In the
quaintest designs are among other novelties.
There is hardly a new piece made In the
"actorles that Is not to be found In some port
of the big store , and there Is something-
every nook In the homo. Even the baby Islet
lot forgotten , for the largest line of car
riages In tlte state is ready for his royal
Measure. The firm is composed of two of
: he most hustling young men In the coun
try , and they are going to satisfy every de
mand that the public makes upon them ,
and do it at prices that , will cut out all
competition. Ladles who desire to see beau-
Iful new , things for home comfort and adorn
ment are Invited to go through the big es
tablishment , whether they want to buy or
CnmperH t Mnnnwn.
There are about fifty families camping : at
Manawa , and the tented population Is being
ticrensed every day. A. W. Klekmnn and
family are the latest additions. They erected
their canvas palace yesterday and occupied it
last night. Only those who have enjoyed the
ilellghts of camping for a week or more can
realize the pleasure that an outing at Man
awa affords. It Is so near town that the
business man can keep In the closest touch
with his business , and when the cares of the
day nro over he can Join his family and
fi lends on the banks ot the beautiful lake
and have all the enjoyments of an outing
300 miles from home. The market gardeners
around the lake make early morning calls in
the cnnvas city und furnish their freshest
,1 crlspest vegetables , while the dairymen
ccmo with fresh butter , milk and cream. The
big Ice houses near by supply quantities of
Ice at prices that are not fixed by any scale
or scales , and the chunk that is dropped off
for a nickel would make the housewife In
the city faint with surprise. If the appe
tites of the campers would not have the pro
voking habit of doubling In capacity house
keeping at the lake would cost far less than
In the city , for the farmers and gardeners
around the lake give generous measures of
their best products. The tents are wonder
fully comfortable , and how people do sleep !
An early morning dip In the lake , a row era
a sail over Its wldo bosom or an exciting
clmso after the elusive black bass give an
appetite for breakfast that paralyses the
cook. More than half the people camping
are from Omaha , and the most of them are
business or professional men. For those
who camp nt Manhattan beach the steamer
Liberty gets out In the lake and toots her
whistle long and loud at 7 o'clock. At 7:25 :
she makes a quick trip across making con
nections with the 7:30 : motor train , and this
reaches the Broadway depot In time to catch'
the electric motor that passes the Paxton
hotel . in Omaha each morning at
8lti. : The business man gets at
his work at even an earlier hour
than ordinarily , Invlgornted by the soundest
sleep , the heartiest breakfast and brightened
by rushing through nine miles of summer
morning sunshine. Do they enjoy It ? Well ,
ask them when they are going to move back
to town and get the universal answer , "not
as long as I can have as much fun as I am
having now. " The social features of life at
the lake are becoming' very pleasant. Col
onel Heed's entertainments at the Grand
Plaza are freeto all each night and after
noon , excepting Sundays , and a ball In the
pavllllon Is almost a nightly occurrencs.
The campers are about evenly divided on
both sides ot the lake , and each sldo has Its
social circles. The prospects are that the
number of campers will bo largely In
creased In the next few days , for all the
crowd there are talking enthusiastically about
the pleasures of the happy mode of existence.

A suit Just begun here has complicated the
title to all the real property at Sargeants
Bluffs , a town of 1,000 population , eight
miles from here. The land was once owned
and platted by J. T. M. Crockwell , who sold
a few lots about 1860. About that time he
died and the purchasers secured the vaca
tion of the plat and purchased the rest of
the land from his heirs at a low price. They
then replatted It and have since sold most of
It for business and residence purposes. Crock-
well's heirs claim that the vacation of the
plat was part of a fccheme to depreciate the
value of the land and get it for less than it
was worth. They ask that the entire plat
be sold and that they be given a share of the

SPRINGFIELD , July 9.--A vigorous and
determined effort was made In the democratic
hcuso caucus to depose ex-Speaker Cliyton
U. Crafts as leader of the minority. The
effort proved a failure , though for a llino
things looked rather shaky for the ex-speaker.
The opposition to Crafts was led by Judge
Mltchel Stoskopf ot Stephenson county. Ho
was backed largely by country members , who
disapproved of Crafts' action at the regular
esslon. The Idea of the opposition was that
he republicans might split , and It Stoskopf
ivcro the democratic nominee he would re
ceive enough republican votes to elect him.
They held that he had many friends on the
republican side who , should a cpllt occur In
heir ranks , would vote tor him.
The Stoskopf people first tried to secure a
recess until after the republican caucus , so
that It would bo known If they would split.
Crafts' follwers saw at once that this might
prove fatal to their man and used all their
night to defeat It and were successful. After
some further wrangling a vote was taken
and Crafts was chosen as the democratic
nominee for speaker. The democratic mem
bers of the house held their caucus In the
senate Judicial committee rooms Immediately
after the house adjournment. After discuss
ing as to the advisability of selecting some
other democrat who would bo more apt to
win republican votes In case of a spilt In
that party , a motion was made by Mr. Le
Crones to defer nominations and take a re
cess until such time as the result of the re
publican caucus for speaker should bo known.
The motion was lost.
Mr. Stoskopf was the only democratic name
presented besides Crafts. On roll call Crafts
received twenty-nine and Stoskopf nineteen ,
and on motion of Mr. Stoskopf he was de
clared the unanimous choice.
The caucus of the republican members will
support Herbert Mulr for speaker to suc
ceed Meyer , deceased. This further compli
cates the fight for speakcrshlp. Early this
morning It was thought there were but two
candidates for the honor. The republican
leaders talked this way and every effort
seemed to be tending toward the selection of
one of these two men. It seemed an even ,
though rather acrimonious , race , and efforts
were spared by neither side to win votes.
Now that Cook has declared for Mulr , It
will be a three-sided fight , and It Is highly
probable that bsfore the matter ends a dark
horse will step In and carry oft the honors.
Thomas Needles of Washington county Is
at present about the only dark horse thought
to be available. As soon as he arrived In
the city after recess he announced that he
would not take a hand in the race. He said
It was an empty honor and he would under
no condition take the speakershlp. This- was
In case the different factions of republicans
could not agree upon a man , otherwise he
would be a compromise candidate. Some of
the country members have talked of Kltz-
miller , but aside from him no one has been
talked of. The Cook county caucus met In
the state house Immediately after the house
adjourned. After a stormy sebslon It. was
agreed to support their only available Cook
county candidate , Mulr , for speaker. This
effort Is , however , limited to two ballots
only. After five ballots Cook county mem
bers are not further bound , but they will
move to adjourn.
But two name ? were voted on In the cau
cus. These were Mulr and Gibson , all others
withdrawing before a vote. This resulted
Mulr , 12 ; Gibson , 9.

CHAMBERLAIN. S. D. , July 9. ( Special. )
A considerable proportion of the Sioux
nation IE KI rally agitated by the dUcovcry
hat since ISf.l the famous plpcstono quarries
at Plpcfttono , Minn. , have paiscd from their
lossosslon Into the liatids of the govern-
ucnt. The Indians claim to have only ic-
ccntly made this discovery , and a council
van at once called to meet at Crow Creek
agency to discuss the matter and take
appropriate action. This council has Just
concluded its labors , and as a result of the
meeting n petition was framed and placed
n the hands of Indian Agent Trcon , of Crow
" reek and Lower Brulc , with the request
that It bo Immediately forwarded to the
government authorities at Washington.
The petition protests against the govcin-
ncnt assuming ownerthlp of the quarries ,
and asks tnat the authorities close the
quarries and dcclaro them again the com
mon property of the Sioux nation. The
council lasted four dasts , and was held on
an extensive plateau two miles northwest
of Crow Creek agency. The Yankton tribe
of Sioux refused to send delegates to din-
cuss the matter , and they nro now charged
by the balance of the Sioux nation with
being responsible for the loss to them of the
quarries. The Sioux make frequent pilgrimages -
ages to these quarries and worship them In
accordance with traditions which have been
handed down by their forefathers , A pecu
liarity of the council was that the delegates
were from 65 to 93 years of ago. Delegates
were present from Crow Creek , Slsseton ,
Pine Ridge. Rosebud , Lower Brulo , Cheyenne -
onno , Standing Rock , Flandrcan and Devil's
Lake agencies. The venerable American
Horse was the representative of the Pine
Ridge Indians , and High Bear icprcscntcd
the Indians at Rosebud agency.

Stltes last week , was last night forcibly
taken from him by deputy sheriffs under an
attachment for an unsecured claim of $2,700
held by the German bank of this city. The
deputies rnado the demand for the stock
and being refused by the assignee broke _

bank and the assignee have both retained
prominent attorneys and a lively legal tilt
will probably follow. The attachment was
based on an allegation of fraud on the part
