CREDITORS CONTEST MOTHER'S CLAIMS
If It is Allowed to Stand Will Cmt

sets of Groreryman la
At the hesrlng yesterday before Referee
Mayne In the W. H. Crenshaw bankruptcy
case the creditors passed a resolution di
recting that the trustee make no claim to
the bank at Crystal Lake, la., the control
of which young Crenshaw was alleged to
have secured on a capital consisting solely
of nerve as an asset of tbe estate. In view
of the fact that O. 8. Gllberteon and C.
J. Thompson, the owners of the bank, had
agreed to make no claim against the funds
of the estate In the bands of the trustee.
Referee Mayne, although no order lias
yet been made by him to this effect, de
cided that the Omaha National bank, which
cashed ose of tbe 15,000 certificates of de
posit secured by Crenshaw from the Crys
tal Lake bank and which filed a petition
of Intervention in the bankruptcy proceed
ings, will have to look to ths bank or Oil
bertson ft Thompson for the payment of Its
Crenshaw's mother and sister, whose
claims aggregate $4,950, waived any claim
to preference under tb mortgages given
them by Crenshaw the diy he disappeared
from Council Bluffs, bu'. agreed to allow
their claims to go In as general creditors
and to participate In the assets. The
claims of Mrs. Crenshaw and her daughter,
however, are objected to by tbe general
creditors on the grounds that the mort
gage given to them by the bankrupt was
for tbe purpose of defrauding bis creditors.
Referee Mayne took under advisement the
adjudication of the claims of Mrs. and Miss
Makes Considerable Difference.
In the event of the claims of Mrs. and
Miss Crenshaw being permitted to staud,
the estate will pay about 40 per cent, but
If they are disallowed tbe creditors will
receive between 80 and 90 per cent of their
claims. The schedule of Indebtedness filed
In ths proceedings amounts to $8,389.13,
Including the claims of Crenshaw's mother
and sister. The funds In the hands of the
trustee amount to $4,086.09.
F. A. Rlckman of the First National
bank of this city, who In the earlier stages
of the proceedings acted as receiver, was
appointed trustee for the creditors.
One of the creditors who since the bank
ruptcy proceedings against Crenshaw were
commenced has given the acquisition by
Crenshaw of the control of the Crystal
Lake bank some Investigation, gave It as
bis opinion at yesterday's meeting that the
young man was not the Napoleon of finance
that he was credited with being. He stated
that he believed Crenshaw, In being , in
duced to buy the bank, had got the worst
end of ths bargain and that it was when
he saw be had assumed a load he could
not carry he availed himself of the oppor
tunity to cash one of the certificates of
deposit and decided to go away rather than
face the music.
The Investigation made by this creditor
shows that on February 1 Crenshaw went
to Des Moines, where the negotiations for
the sale of tbe bank by OUbertson and
Thompson to blm were begun. That was
on Saturday. On the Monday following
Crenshaw, accompanied by one of the own
era of the bank, went to Crystal Lake. He
was only In .the town one hour and when
be left he had with him certificates of de
posit aggregating $20,000, Issued by ths
cashier who was In the employ of Gllbertson
and Thompson. From Crystal Lake Cren
shaw went to Slouz City, where he at
tempted to cash the certificates, but failed.
On February 6 he cashed one for $5,000 at
the Omaha National bank. The Omaha
National bank corresponded with ths Crys
tal Laks bank regarding the certificate and
all of this correspondence shows that the
certificate was guaranteed by the cashier
of that bank. Neither the Omaha National
bank nor OUbertson and Thompson have
made any effort to apprehend Crenshaw and
it was stated at yesterday's meeting that
neither of them wanted to. On behalf of
Crenshaw, It was stated that If be had been
In entire control of the bank, as had been
asserted, he could have taken possession
of the cash which was In the vault and
which amounted to over $3,000.
Homes for All.

payments, homes In all parts of tbe city,
including some of the nicest residences

CITY WINS THE PAVING CASE
Wlelthaan Contract Held to Be Valid
- and Property Liable for
Judge Wheeler In the district court yes
terday morning handed down his decision
In the suit brought by L. C. Baldwin and
other property owners in the Fourth ward
against the city, in which tbe validity of
tbe contract awarded to E. A. Wlckham
for the paving of certain streets and ave
nues in thst ward was attacked. The pe
tition of ths plaintiffs that ths contract
be declared null and void and that the city
be prevented from assessing against tbe
abutting property the cost of ths paving Is
denied. The streets involved In ths con
troversy were: First, Willow snd Fifth
svsnues and Sixth, Seventh and Eighth
The petitioners attacked the validity of
the contract between the city and Wlckham
on' the ground that the entire proceed
ings of the city council In ordering the
Improvement were irregular In that suf
ficient notice wss not given ths property
owners interested and that In the resolu
tion providing for tbe paving of tbe streets
named the material was not specifically
designated. The plaintiffs also allege fraud
In the letting of the contract and that It
was not awarded to the lowest bidder, as
provided by law.
In giving his decision Judge Wheeler
ststed that be had not taken time to give
the subject as careful Investigation as
would hare liked, owing to tbe pressure
of other business, but bad decided that It
was Important that a decision should be
reached in tbe ease, as Thursday was ths
last day allowed property owners on Sixth
strset, the paving of which has been com
pleted, to determine whether they pre
ferred to sign walvsrs or pay for the im
provement la cash-
Judge Wheeler In bis ruling held that ths
designation of "vitrified brick" In the reso
lution passed by 'the council la ordering
lb imgantanak suttalsaUr, DeolAa
as to the material to be used and that tbe
city should not be held to a more specific
designation of material and manner of
construction of the work In the prellraloafy
notice, the purpose of the resolution being
to advise property owners of the Intent to
Improve the streets named and to afford
them an opportunity to file their objec
tions. In general the court held that the law
had been conformed with by tbs city coun
cil In its proceedings ordering the paving
snd awarding the contract to Wlckham.
As to the allegation of fraud In tbe award
ing of the contract Judge Wheeler said
thst there was not tbe slightest evidence
to substantiate this charge.
Judge Wheeler's decision la sn Important
one for the city, as the future of psvlng
In Council Bluffs depended to a grest ex
tent upon It. Tbe petitioners bad not de
cided yesterday whether to take tbe case
to the suprtme court.

Matters In the District Conrt.
Judge Green held session of district
court yesterdsy to hear arguments In ths
suit of J. J. Rauer against Louise Douglas.
Benjsmln Douglas, the founder of Dun's
Mercantile agency, who died about two
years ago In California, owned a large
amount of land In this and other counties
In Iowa. This property was subject to liens
amounting to $30,000 In the event that his
general estate was not sufficient to pay
them. The heirs cold their Interests in tbe
land in this state to certain real estate
dealers In thla city, who are really the
plaintiffs In this action. They contend that
the general estate Is ample to pay these
liens, while the defendsnt. contends that
the property In this state should be made
subject to them.

la going to be considerable more than bad

the erection of a new building fully ss good

erect a new building on the site of his old

for the erection of a brick building cover

occupied by the Knights of Pythias lodge
and clubrooms, making probably the finest

scene of desolation Is disheartening to tho

there Is no doubt but the rebuilt block will

rest will take care for itself. Clean up your system and
get a new supply of blood, and you will soon be all right,

The way to get rid of the trouble is to take Smith's
Green mountain Renovator. You won't have to take
it very long, but you want to take a good course of it in
order to make sure that you are completely cured- and
haven't the slightest trace of blood impurity left.

Gentlemen : I am very thankful I have at last dlscovded a remedy to
cure ray rheumatism. I have had rheumatism for twenty years, aud for
the past fourteen years I have suffered pain constantly from the top of
my head to the tip of my toes, and for the past three years I had been
unable to sleep very much and would be more tired when I would get
up in the morning than when I would retire. After taking Smith's
Green Mountain Renovator three weeks the pain entirely disappeared
and I can now sleep well and feel like a new man. I am very glad to
recommend it to others and give all the information any one desires,
(Signed) Chas. . Ourandlr.
Smith's Green fountain Renovator has enjoyed a
large sale for many years, although it has not been ad
vertised until recently. It is a Vermont medicine
known to all Vermonters made of the roots and herbs
of the Green Mountain State. It was formerly the prop
erty of a man who had neither the experience nor the
ambition to introduce it throughout the country, but was
satisfied with its great success in his own vicinity.
Now it is within everybody's reach.
It is not only the suro cure for rheumatism, but the
best thing in the world for anything due to bad blood or
not enough blood. It also cures liver and kidney troubles
and the long list of dangerous diseases which follow
troubles in those organs.
This medioine 1b better than anything else for the reason that it is a
compound of roots and herbs whose curative properties are absolutely
Drugs soothe and seem to be beneficial.
Nature's own vegetable remedies really cure.
That is the diflferenoo, and a very important difference It is.
If anybody in your family is weak, sickly or ailing, dragging around
in a half dead condition all the time and not seeming to get any better,
you can't be too quick in getting hold of Smith's Green mountain
llenovator. It will do for you what it never fails to do for other
We absolutely guarantee this medioine. This is something we can't
do for anything else ; that is to say, if you stand in need of a medioine
of this character, oome in and buy Smith's Green Mountain Ilenovav
tor, and if it fails to benefit you, you oan have your money back.
