Creditors of the Officer at
At the conclusion of the bearing yester
day afternoon on the application for the re
xnovtl of John Beresheim and Louis F.

bank, Judge Wheeler denied the petition.
In giving his decision Judge Wheeler aatd
there was nothing to show that the estate
of the bank was not being managed to the
best advantage and he did not believe the
affairs of the bank could be any more ex
peditiously or advantageously closed by a
new receiver; that a change at this time
would require time for a new receiver to
become acquainted with the details of the
state and that in bis opinion the manage
ment would be just ss expensive. Judge
Wheeler also said that while be would like

' creditors, to remove the receivers at this
time would be to cast a slur on their man.

SEVEN PRISONERS , ESCAPE
Overpower Jailer Martin and Wife Just
After ths Sapper Hour,
POTTAWATTAMIE COUNTY JAIL EXODUS
William Thompson. Charged with
Buralary, Evidently the Leader
of the Ganar Others Make
Ko Effort to Leave.
Seven prisoners made their escape from
the county jail last evening after over
powering George Martin, the jailer, and hla
wife, whom they forced Into the corridor
around the revolving cage and abutting the
door on them made a dash for liberty
through the front door into the court house
The prlsonera who escaped were William
Thompson and E. O. Jones, charged with
breaking into Maloney's cigar factory; John
Enbrlcht, charged with breaking Into
Scbott'g drug stare; Andrew Thompson,
charged with breaking into Currie Bros.
store at Underwood; H. Fiehburn, charged
with the larceny of a bicycle, and Mike
Fahey and Mike Sheehan, charged with as
saulting and robbing Fred Goth in the rail
road yarda. All seven were awaiting trial,
indictments against them having been re.
turned by the grand jury Wednesday.
The men made their escape a little be.
fore 7 o'clock, a few minutes after they had
finished eating supper. How they suc
ceeded in picking the lock, one of the
tumbler pattern, on the gate .of the Inner
corridor, la not known. There were eleven
prisoners in the corridor which encircle
the revolving cage in which the men are
confined at night, During the daytime
they are kept in the corridor. Entrance
to the corridor from the hallway of tne jail
is through an iron outer door and then
through a steel barred gate. This gats was
locked with a tumbler padlock, but the
outei door was unlocked.
Surprise the Jailer.
Jailer Martin bad just finished hts supper
and waa placing away aome bread in th
bread box which stands in the hallway
against the wall next the outer door of the
jail proper. While he was stooping over
the box the door was thrust open, striking
him upon the top of the head and almost
knocking btm down. Before he had time to
recover himself Andrew Thompson rushed
out, followed by the other six prisoners.
Thompson, who appeared to be the ring
leader, seized Martin by the throat and at
tempted to force him back toward the cell
door. Martin struggled and nearly sue
ceeded In freeing himself when the other
six men jumped on him and they forced him
round the stairway and back to the cell
door, through which they thrust him. Mar
tin called to his wife to get him hla re
volver, which was in the bed room off the
hsil. Before Mrs. Martin could do so, bow.
ever, two of the fellows seized her and
forced her after ber husband through the
door Into the inner corridor. They then
shut the door and turned the handle, but
were unable to lock it, not having the key.
One of the men ran into the bed room,
seized the revolver, which. was lyinlg on the
bed, and all seven , then made a daah
through the outer door Into the court
house yard. Three turned down ths alley
into Sixth street, while the other four ran
south on Main atreeOevidently intending to
reach the railroad yards.
Jailer Martin succeeded in opening the
door in a few aeconda and started in pur
suit, but remembering that the prisoners
left behind were not locked in returned to
the jail. The other four men who were
confined in the corridor, James Casady,
Harry Caley, John Plumb and Charles Cole
man, made no attempt to escape.
Search for the Escaped Prisoners.
Martin lost no time in giving the alarm
and Sheriff Cousins and his force of dep
uties were soon on the scene. Search for
the escaped prisoners was at once begun.
Andrew Thompson, who is a big, mus
cular man, appeared to be the ringleader.
He waa judge of the kangaroo court and
waa acting as "monitor," in which capac
ity be served out the meals to the other
prisoners. That the escape had been well
planned waa evident from what was learned
from the prisoners who did not attempt to
escape. They claim they were not in the
secret and did not know anything about
it until ths men made the dash for the
gate. Tbey said that aa they were finish

Sioux Cltv Journal: Ths Polk county
Woman s Christian Temperance union was
right in its determination not to crltlolfo
the Iowa supreme court for Its ruling In
regard to the Interstate commeroe features
of the prohibitory law. The Iowa court
was not only sctlng '.n scrordanoe with ths
pmvlnlons of a law for which congress was
responsible, but It was following the pre
vious rulings of the United Statos supremo
court In Interpretation of that law. Re
sponsibility for neither the law nor ths In

Creston Gazette: Among other matters
of which a stranger naturally takes note In
a community Is tne number of Its churches
and the men who srrace ths pulpits. In this
respect Creston may well plume Itself that
for scholarship, for forensic attainments
and for the peculiar equipment so neces
sary In the doing of the Master's work Its
pulpiteers hsve attained to a worthv emin
ence. The demand for these qualifications
in Its preachers denotes a high standard of
Intelligence In a community, a desire for
Intellectual as well as spiritual stimulus.
There Is no excuse along these lines for
non-attendance at worship in Creston. AH
the pulpits are ably filled snd It should re
dound to the credit of our community that
these able and godly men should be given a
generous hearing each Sabbath.

"You take this down to the restaurant,
buy a 15-cent cigar, take $1 yourself and
bring me the change," said tbe senator.
In a few minutes the man came back,
smoking a cigar, and handed the senator
"Did you mean I waa to have tbe cigar,
too?" he asked the Senator.
The senator was equal to the emerg
ency. "Certainly," he said; "but now that 1
come to think of tt I am sorry that I put
a 15-cent limit on the cigar. A man with
your nerve should never smoke cigars that
cost lees than three for $1. Get out!"
