HAVE A CLEVER SCHEME FOR ALIBI
Lodge Temporarily la Hobo Qnarters
at City Jail, Jest Before Robbery,
is Hopes of Evading;
James J. Payette and James Holley, who
were arrested yesterday morning In Omaha
and charged with breaking Into and rob
bing the itor of the Cole-Brelsford Hard
ware company on South Main staeet Fri
day evening, adopted a clever scheme
whereby they evidently hoped to establish
an alibi If suspected of the crime.
Both Fayette and Holley applied for and
were given lodging In the hobo quarters
of the city Jail Friday night Evidence
In the bands of the police shows that the
tore was robbed between and 8 o'clock
Friday night and It la alleged that Payette
and Holley, who committed the burglary,
went at once across the river to Omaha,
where they disposed of their plunder, and
then returned on the last car to Council
Bluffs, where they obtained lodging at the
city Jail. Early yesterday morning tbey
went back to Omaha, where Detective
Weir, assisted by two Omaha officers, found
them In a saloon.
Among the goods stolen from the Cole
Brelsford store were three revolvers, eight
een pocketknlves, fourteen raxors and
small sum from the cash register, which
was broken open. With the exception of
two revolvers and a few knives, all of the
stolen goods were found In a Douglas
street pawnshop. The keeper of the pawn
shop Identified Payette as the man who
sold him the goods and recognized Holley
as the man who stood outside the shop
while Payette was doing the selling.
Payette waa brought back to Council
Bluffs yesterday afternoon, but Holley de
dined to return without requisition papers.
Both men denied being responsible for
the robbery. Friday morning Payette was
seen by Detective Weir in a Broadway
saloon and the officer took him to police
headquarters for Investigation. Payette
put up a plausible story of looking for
work and was allowed to go.
Entrance to the Cole-Brelsford store was
obtained by breaking out a rear window
looking Into the alley. The broken win
dow was discovered by Officer Swanson
while making his rounds early yesterday
morning. The police say they have In
formation showing that two of the atolen
revolvers not yet recovered were sold to
persons in an Omaha saloon. Paystte, when
taken to police headquarters Friday morn
ing for Investigation, had no money. When
arrested in Omaha yesterday ha and Hol
ley had over $3 apiece and It was said
had been spending money freely in the
saloon where they were found by the of
ficers. Ceancll Dlaffs Choree.es.

SUPERVISORS REFUSE TO PAY
Declare Dr. teller's Bill for Attend,
las; Smallpox Patleats is
The Board of County Supervisors yester
day morning refused to allow the payment
of Dr. W. E. teller's bill of $1,032 for at
tending city smallpox cases from November
14 to December 81, 1901, on the grounds
that It Considered It unreasonable. The board
decided to allow $500 In full payment of
Dr. Relief's claim. . Dr. Reller refused to
sccept this amount.
Dr. Reller was appointed by ths city
Board of Health to attend all smallpox
esses In the city at a flat rats of $24 a case,
This contract was entered Into by the
Board of. Health after bids had been so
licited and received from physicians deslr
ing the practice. Dr. Roller's bid of $24
was the lowest and was accepted.
The bill submitted by Dr. Reller only
represents less than half of what he claims
Is due htm to date under his contract with
the city. It was for forty-three cases, which
he had attended from November 14 to De
cember 31. Since the first of the year there
have been over fifty cases, all of which
have been attended by Dr. Reller.
The supervisors expressed themselves of
the opinion that In few smallpox cases were
the services of a physician needed. In one
family quarantined there are fifteen mem
bers reported to be suffering from smallpox
and In another family eight members are
said to be down with it, and under his con
tract with the city Dr. Reller has the right
to charge $24 for each of these cases. This
the supervisors declared waa unreasonable,
A committee consisting of Supervisors
Brandes, Baker and Kerney was appointed
to confer with the city Board of Health In
the matter, also in the matter of securing
an Isolation hospital for women smallpox
The claims for rent of houses occupied by
smallpox patlenta during quarantine were
referred to the county attorney for his opln
Ion aa to the llsblllty of the county. Ths
board also declined to allow more than $5
for the fumigation and disinfection
premises quarantined for smallpox.
Lunkley and L. Cutler, who had been era
ployed by the health authorities to perform
this work, had charged $8 In each case.
The bill of Oreen Bros, for groceries sup
plied quarantined families In the city was
allowed In full.

Tn that wldelv exaas-erated renorts that
the danger from the smallpox situation In
Des Moines obtain over the state, I desire
to say that the affected districts are not
adjacent to the business section, and there
need be no apprehension whatever among
merchants and others over the state.
Ne&rlv everv mercantile establishment hns
had employes vaccinated and every pre-
caution Is taken that no Infection shall

Legislators Show Fear.
The legislature did little business today.
Some recognition was given the smallpox
epidemic In Des Moines. In the house
Mr. Jenks of Pottawattamie introduced the
following resolution, which was laid over
I uader the rules:
Whereas. The city of Des Moines is in
fected with smallpox to an alarming extent
and tne danger or contagion is so immi
nent as to endanger the health of the mem
bers of the general assembly and no proper
quarantine of Infected persons or places Is
maintained Dy me cuy auinonuesi mere

Resolved, That when tne Twenty-nintn
general assembly adjourns on Wednesday.
February 20. 1902, that It stand adjourned
until 10 o'clock a, m., on the first Monday
of June, 1902.
In the senate the smallpox question came
up indirectly. Senator Bachman asked that
senate file 192 be made a special order for
Tuesday next at 10:30 a. m. There was ob
jection by Lewis, unless it waa shown that
ths measure was very Important. Senator
Bachman explained that the bill provides
for giving the State Board of Health greater
power to cope with epidemics where local
boards are doing nothing. With this ex
planation all objections were withdrawn and
the special order made. The bill would
give the state board power to take charge
of affaire In a city like Des Moines where
the local authorities have been for weeks
Minor Bills Passed.
