ALLOWS THE SMALLPOX BILLS
Hereafter Connty Will Reqnlre City
to Reader an Itemised
Bills Incurred for the care of smallpox
patients occupied the attention of the
County Board of Supervisors the greater
part of yesterday's session. With the ex
ception of a few small bills for the rent
of bouses occupied by smallpox patients
during the period of their quarantine the
board allowed all of the bills presented by
Ike city Board of Health.
Hereafter under the new law the city
will bave to keep an Itemised account of
the expenses Incurred in each individual
case, and this will entail much work upon
the city clerk, who la also clerk of the
health board. In view of this It la not
unlikely that the city council will decide
on haying the superior court removed
from the aounty courthouse to the city
building. In order that the deputy city
clerk, who acts aa clerk of the superior
court, may be employed to assist the city
clerk. Under the present arrangement the
clerk of the superior court doea not have
as a rule one bour'a work a day to do, and
the position has long been a veritable sine
cure. The question of removing ' the
superior court. It la expected will, be
brought before the city council at its next
meeting by Alderman McDonald. The
county, it is aatd. will raise no objection
to the removal of the superior court, as
the rooms now occupied by it can be used
and in fact are needed for the accommoda
tion of the trial juries.

RECAPTURE ONE PRISONER
H. Flshbnrn I'oand la Rock Island
Tarda by Special OfBeev
H. Flshburn, one of the seven prtaonera
who escaped from the county Jail Thursday
evening, was recaptured about S o'clock
yesterday morning at the Rock Island rail
road yards, by Special Officer Beswlck.
Flshburn says that after escaping from
the county jail, he separated from the
others and made his wsy to South Omaha.
There he attempted to get a ride on a freight
train going east, but failed. He then
crossed back to Council Bluffs and was
waiting at the roundhouse In the hops
of being able to jump a freight, when
Officer Beawlck found him and took htm
back to the county jail. Flshburn when
recaptured was wearing a yellow oil rain
coat, which be did not have when he left
the county jail. When Mrs. Martin was
aetied by the escaping prtaonera and forced
into the corridor it waa Flshburn who
prevented her from being roughly treated.
Word was received yesterday morning
from Avoca that a man thought to be An
drew Thompson, supposed to be tha ring
leader of the prisoners who escaped, waa
under arrest there. The man It waa aald
had been captured with difficulty and only
after a running fight. In which revolvera
were freely used. Deputy Sheriff Canning
went to Avoca and found that the fellow
under arrest waa not any one of the es
How the prisoners succeeded la opening
the lock of the corridor waa explained
yeaterday morning, by the finding of the
padlock on the bunk In one of the cells of
the revolving cylinder. In it was a key
with which the padlock bad been unlocked.
Thla key had been made from the handle
of a common Iron apoon and had evidently
been made with a fine aaw or file. The work
on it waa rough and leada to the belief
that it waa cut out with a small file. Tha
apoon la not of the pattern uaed at tha
county jail and Sheriff Couslna le firmly
of the opinion that it waa handed in by
soma one on the outside. This could eaally
have been accomplished by any person vis
iting ths prisoners or by passing It through
on of the outside windows after dark.
Sheriff Cousins will recommend to tha
onatr supervisors that all the windows
of the Jail be protected with heavy wire
screening on the Inside, which will pre
vent anything being passed In through
Jailer Martin was not seriously Injured
by the terrific onslaught made on him by
the escaping prisoners, although somewhat
bruised and sore from his struggle with
them. Mrs. Martin, who has recently re
covered from a long and severe Illness,
was almost prostrated yesterday from the
experience ahe went through Thursday
John Hill, janitor of the courthouse, saw
threo of the escaping prisoners running
through the yard of the courthouse on the
south side and jumped from a first floor
window after them. Ha gave chase aa far
as Sixth street, but In the rain and dark
ness lost sight of the fugitives there.
Fisbburn. when questioned by Sheriff
Couslna yesterday, said he knew nothing of
a preconcerted plan to escape, but followed
the others when they made their dash
through the gate. This Is not credited,
as if unprepared to make his escape, It
la believed that. Flshburn would not have
waited to secure hla hat and coat before
following the otbera.
Descriptions of the escaped prisoners
have been sent broadcast over the country
and Sheriff Couslna haa offered a reward
of $50 for the capture of either Mike
Fahey, Mike Sheehan, E. O. Jones," or
William Mason, and $25 for each of the
others. Special Officer Beswlck of the Rock
Island railroad will be entitled to the re
ward of $25 for the capture of Flshburn.
These are the descriptions of the men now

Compiling Railway Statistics.
The secretary of the state executive
council has been engaged for some time In
preparing tabulated statements of the con
dition ot the railroads ot Iowa, and haa
just had printed sbeetB showing at a glance
the Important facts regarding Iowa rail
roads, on which the council will soon make
tbe annual assessment. These sheets show
that the twenty-nine different railroads
from which reports are required have a
mileage ot main track in Iowa of 9,336 miles
and a fraction; they have 508 miles of sec
ond track, 2,137 miles of sidetrack in the
state, and the total mileage of the systems
represented is 37,892. The average as
sessed value per mile of the railroad prop
erty in Iowa last year was $5,041. The
total of gross earnings for Iowa was $56,
089,953.12, or $6,006.73 per mile. The oper
ating expenses In Iowa totaled $39,618,
967.30, or $4,234.60 per mile on an average.
Tbe net earnings, after deducting net losses
on a few of the systems, were $16,460,975.82,
or on average of $1,763.13 per mile in Iowa.
Tbe total taxes actually paid In Iowa In
1901 was $1,663,492. 87.
May Not Lose Fort Dodsre Road.
It le believed here tbat tbe Rock Island
railroad will not lose the Des Moines tt
Fort Dodge branch. That line la now op
erated by the Rock Island on a lease which
expires January 1, 19C5. At the election
held bere it waa demonstrated beyond any
question that interests other than those
allied with the Rock Island have secured
a majority of the stock and bonds and are
able to control the road. Just what these
interests are nobody seems to know. The
persons most Interested say that It means
merely that speculators have gobbled up
enough stock of the Fort Dodge line to
make It necessary for the Rock Island to
pay a big price for the stock when the
time comes for making new arrangements
after the expiration of the lease. Such be
ing the case it is expected the Rock Isl
and will buy the road within the next two
years, even though It maw be necessary to
pay handsomely for negligence in not get
ting possession ot the stock long ago. This
is deemed all the more probable since tbe
Rock Island has bought outright tbe Bur
llngton. Cedar Rapids Sc. Northern.

Arrest a Mnrder Suspect.
Chief of Police Fred A. Brackett of Dea
Motnea was informed early last week that
a man by the name of C. K. Harris of Adel
bad been doing a great deal of talking
about the murder of the Peterson children.
which occurred in Des Moines April 13
last. Tbe chief was informed thav. on a
number of occasions Harris had called
leading citizens of the town to one side
and given them a long talking to in regard
to the Peterson murder, and not only were
there these suspicious signs, but Harris,
it wss learned, had talked In his sleep ot
the crime. The matter became common
talk and publlo sentiment had been dl
vlded as to whether Harris knew something
about tqe murder and could not rest un
der tbe burden or whether he had been
crazed by the details of tbe terrible crime.
which he had read in tbe papers. The
chief sent word to Sheriff J. N. Haines last
Saturday that he would bave a couple of
men In Adel on Tuesday morning early and
that tbe detectives would endeavor to learn
what Harris knows of the case, if any
thing. After some Investigation Harris
was arrested and brought here, where be
will he held as a suspect, though there Is
thus tar little evidence against him.
Plans for Deaf School.
The plans for some ot the temporary
buildings to be erected at the State School
for the Deaf at Council Bluffs have been
completed and are in the office of the
Board of Public Works. Tbe buildings will
all be as plain as possible and of very
cheap construction, because it Is feared tha
Board of Control will not be able to keep
within the limit allowed them by tbe ex
ecutive council for thla purpose. It la
the Intention of tbe atate architect that
all these buildings shall be temporary in
nature, none of them more than two atortes
high. He will recommend to the board
that when plans are made for the perma
nent structures they adopt tbe cottage
system at tbe school, and Instead of build
ing one large building for the school, a
part ot which Is to be used for a dormi
tory, that they erect a number of small
cottagea, each one to be the home of a
group ot the atudenta and over each one
of which there will preside a matron
