POLICE HAVE ONE SUSPECT UNDER ARREST

Railway Clerk Moyer. found Bafurday at
midnight lying In an unconscious condition
o the sidewalk in front of the Creston
house saloon on South Main street, suffer
log from a fractured skull and with blood
pouring from a wound under bis right eye,
died shortly after 8 o'clock yesterday
morning at Bt. Bernard's hospital without
regaining consciousness. Death was pri
marily due to concussion of the brain re
suiting from the fracture of the skull.
A postmortem examination was. held yes
terday afternoon by Coroner Treynor, who
was assisted by Drs. F. T. 8eybert, F. W.
Houghton, J. M. Barstow and W. P. Hom
bach. The autopsy disclosed the fact ,that
the wound under the right eye had not
been caused by a gunshot and that It was
merely a superficial Injury and by Itself
was not sufficient to have caused death.
How Moyer received the wound under tho
eye or what caused It the physicians mak
ing the examination were unable to de
termine, although they each expressed their
At the back of the head and slightly over
the left ear was a contusion such ae might
have been cauaed by a blow with some
heavy, blunt instrument. The skull was
found to have been fractured at the base of
the brain, the fracture extending clear
around the head.
Coroner Treynor gave Instructions for
an Inquest to be held this afternoon at 1
o'clock. The body of the unfortunate vic
tim of the mysterious assault Is lying at
Cutler's undertaking rooms on Pearl street.
Theories Heejardlna; Injury.
Dr. Beybert is of the opinion that Moyer
was struck a heavy blow by someone
armed with a blunt Instrument and that in
falling he struck the pavement with such
force as to fracture the skull. As to the
Injury under the eye he said It might
have been caused by a thrust from an um
brella or a cane, but as . the Injury was
superficial. It might have been caused by
any kind of a weapon.
Dr. Hombach advanced the theory that
Moyer had been ejected from the saloon
by force and had stumbled or been thrown
against an Iron hitching post which Is di
rectly In front of the saloon door on the
curbing. There Is an Irregular cap on the
top of the post through which runs an Iron
ring. Dr. Hombach thinks it very likely
that Moyer struck his face against tho top
of the post, thus causing the wound under
tho eye, and that the Intense pain of the
Injury caused him to stagger and fall back
wards, striking his head on the sidewalk.
J He la of the opinion also that the contusion
.over the left ear was caused by a blow
from soma , blunt Instrument, possibly a
The peculiar fracture of the skull Is ev
idence that Moyer must have struck the
sidewalk with terrific force. There are two
'lineal fractures extending all the way
around the head at the base of the brain.
Tho physicians making the autopsy said
this was a most unusual fracture.
Mortetten Sticks to Story.
Martin Mortensen, the bartender at the
Creston house saloon, where Moyer and
several companions were drinking Saturday
night, was taken to police headquarters
yesterday and placed in the sweat-box by
Chief Tlbblts, but It Is said nothing further
was learned from him beyond what he had
stated Saturday night. He adhered to his
statement that Moyer and his three com
panions left the saloon at about 11:40, when
he locked the front doors and started to
clean up the place and count the receipts
of ths night. He knew nothing about
Moysr being Injured until Mayer's uncon
scious form was found by former Alderman
Brown and County 8urveyor Cook. He pos
itively asserted that he had heard no fight
or quarreling outside the saloon after he
had locked the front door and supposed that
Moyer and his companions had gone to their
homes. Ho denied knowing the names of
the three young men with Moyer, but ad
mitted that he knew them by sight and that
they frequently patronized bis saloon.
Harry Gregory and Adam Miller, two
young fellows who were said to have been
in the Creston house saloon at the same
tlmo Moyer was there, were taken to police
headquarters yesterday and questioned, but
the police declined to give any particulars
ss to whether any Information which might
throw light on the murder was secured
from them. They were not detained.
It was reported yesterday that shortly
after Moyer was found lying on the side
walk young Miller made a statement to the
affect that hs had seen a certain person
strike Moyer in the face. It is believed
that aoms clue was obtained by the police
from Miller, as shortly after he was at po
lice headquarters Chief Tlbblts left for
Omaha In search, it was said, of a person
supposed to have been Implicated in ths as
Oaa Man' I'nder Arrest.
The first suspect to be arrested was O.
Vf. Roderick, who was taken Into custody
last night by Constable Albertl and De
tective Murphy. It Is alleged that Rod
erick was one ef the three men who were
drinking with Moyer in ths Creston house
saloon and who left the saloon at the same
lime he did. According to the description
furnished the police two of the men with
Moyer were of medium height, while the
third waa considerably taller. Roderick Is
said to be the tall man of the throe.
Roderick evinced no surprise when ar
rested and the police say that he had been
hiding from them all day and was making
preparations to leave the city when taken
Into custody. He denied being implicated
la ths assault on Moyer, or being In any
way connected with his death and says that
he has not been In ths Creston houss sa
loon for several weeks. The police claim
they have ample evidence to show that he
was In the saloon Saturday night with
Moyer and was ordered out by Martin Mor
tensen, ths bartender, with Moyer and the
sthcr two men.
Roderick makes his home between 8outh
Omaha and this rlty. His wife lives In
South Omaha, but hs has three sisters In
Council Bluffs and frequently stays with
MS or ths other of .them. He was arrested
at the home of one of bis alsters. Until
a few days ago he had been working on the
Great Western grade near the city limits,
but had drawn bis pay and came to ths
city to spend It.
No charge was placed against him last
night, as the police decided to await the
result of the Inquest this afternoon.
Little is known about Moyer family
here. It was said that be had a sister in
Fairfield, la., and a message was sent there
yesterday morning. Up to last night no
answer bad been received from her.

NEW LAW FOR DES MOINES POLICEMEN
Will Go laser Civil Service This
WeekAnother Hitch la the Water
Works fuse Newspaper Mer
ger Comes as a Surprise.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, June 29. (Special.) An
unusual amount of lawlessness is reported
from various parts of the state of Iowa this
year, and In a number of places It has been
found necessary for the people to organize
to put an end to conditions they cannot
tolerate. At Esthervllle an attempt was
made to burn a house with Intent to mur
der. It was the residence of R. E. Ridley,
a prominent citizen. His wife was in the
house very 111 at the time and about 1:30
o'clock in the morning she smelted smoke
and awakened Mr. Ridley who found the
kitchen was ablaze. Next door was an
other residence very close and another
sick woman was lying therein unable to
be moved. It was felt that the Incendiary
had tried to cause ths death of both wo
men. An indignation meeting was held
and an organization formed to help In
ferreting out the crime. The people added
$700 to the reward of $300 offered by Mr.
Ridley. It Is believed the trouble arose over
, The people of the town of Hamilton, in
Marlon county, have organized to put a
stop to similar lawlessness. A drug store
was blown to atoms In that town by a
charge of dynamite and there Is no doubt
that the outrage came because of the re
fusal of the druggist to sell liquor to
someone. Investigation Is being made and
It Is believed some arrests will follow.
At Chariton the murder of Belden Cook
In a district of the town notorious for
liquor Joints has aroused the people and
they have been making raids on the Il
legal liquor sellers in an attempt to clean
up the town. There Is much Indignation
among the people and a desire to prevent
At Corydon a similar state of (affairs
exists. A public meeting was held to take
steps to stop the Illegal sale of liquor and
an organization formed to carry on the
work of prosecuting bootleggers. Nearly
$1,000 was contributed off hand for the
work, and the agents of the railroads and
express companies were notified not to re
ceive liquor and a committee was named
to warn all liquor salesmen to leave the
Police Under Civil Service.
It is expected that tomorrow Mayor
Brenton will appoint a Board of Police and
Fire Commissioners for Des Moines. The
legislature authorized such a board and
the city council has passed an ordinance
In accordance with the law. The board
will take charge next week and hereafter
all appointments to positions on the city
police force or the Are department will be
made by a nonpartisan board operating
under stringent civil service rules. It Is
not known who will be on the board, a
number of names having been considered.
The fire department has been under civil
service rule for a long time and Is very
efficient, but the polloo force has. always
been political In character. Nearly all the
present members of the police force are
candidates for retention.
Failed to Oct a Bond.
Another slight hitch, 'one of many In the
last three years, has occurred in the ar
rangements for the laying of water mains
to the site of the army post. The com
pany had planned to give a surety bond to
Indemnify city officials from damage suits
on account of the alleged Illegal action in
turning over $50,000 of the city funds to the
company, but at the last moment the
fidelity companies refused 'to furnish the
bonds. It was regarded as entirely too
doubtful to be undertaken by the com
panies and if any bond is given It will
have to be a personal one furnished by the
citizens of Des Moines. An effort Is to
be made by officials of the water company
to furnish such a bond. The work of the
contractors has been commenced at the site
of the army post and other contracts have
been let, but not much more work can be
done until water Is furnished on the ground
and there Is no considerable amount of
water to bo had.
Routes for the Encampments.
The adjutant general Is engaged in ar
ranging routes for the encampments of the
National guard. Nearly all the companies
of the Fifty-first regiment from southern
Iowa will go to Atlantic by way of Council
Bluffs except those near Des Moines. It
will not be necessary to have special trains,
but In the northern part of the state the
compantes will be provided with special
trains In a number of cases. The new
companies at Sheldon, Independence and
Cresco will be ready to go Into camp thta
year, a special examining board being ready
to examine the officers for commissions.
The signal company, located In this city,
which is not attached to any regiment, will
go Into camp with the Fiftieth regiment at
Laboring- Men Assist Girls.
A largely attended meeting of the labor
ing men of Des Moines was held at Trades
Assembly hall today to take action toward
assisting tho telephone girls In their con
test. Much time was spent In the general
meeting considering resolutions demanding
of the city that It buy and operate the mu
tual, telephone system, but no definite ac
tion was taken. The telephone oper
ators who are In the strike were
present. Ths meeting wss enthusias
tic In support of the strike and the oper
ators were given every possible assurance
of support. Afterward a meeting of the
officials and committees of the Trades As
sembly was held and It was decided that
other strikes will be Inaugurated this week,
but the exact program will not be decided
on until later.

for ths purpose of reorganizing the party
In the county as a political body. There
baa always been a number of prohibition
ists In the county and last year they polled
enough votes to entitle them to a place on

NEW QUESTIONJN BALLOT LAW
Legality of Stamplasr Names on
Ticket to Re Tested In
CRESTON, la., June 29. (Special.) Six
cases were filed with the county clerk of
Union county last evening which will prove
of much Interest when they come to trial
on account of the question Involved. The
city of Lorlmer held Its usual election this
spring for city officers. In which the offi
cers to be elected were a mayor, city
treasurer, recorder and three aldermen, as
sessor and some minor officers. The elec
tion was non-partisan, but two tickets were
In the field. All the old officers were can
didates for re-election and the contest was
to oust them from control. The election
was under the Australian ballot system and
the ticket containing the names of the men
in office was duly filed, as provided by law,
with the city clerk, but by some misunder
standing the opposing candidates failed to
get their names printed on the ticket, al
though they claim they filed them in suffi
cient time as required by the statutes. At
ay rate, when It became known that the
ballot was to appear with only one set fit
names on the ticket the question arose as
how to get the names of the opposing can
didates on the ticket. Finally on the day
before the election a man was sent to Des
Moines and bad nine rubber stamps made
with the names of the other candidates on
them. On election day each voter was In
structed properly and sent Into the booth
with nine rubber stamps In his pocket and
stamped the names of his candidates on the
ballot and marked them with the cross as
required. When the votes were counted
it was found that tho rubber-stamp candi
dates had received the most votes. The
judges and clerks of election decided that
the votes were legal and Issued certifi
cates of election to those men, who duly
qualified for their respective offices. The
men who were in office refused to turn
over their offices to the newly-elected offi
cials on the grounds that the rubber-stamp
names were Illegal. There is now two
sets of city officers, both of whom hold
certificates -of election and are duly quali
fied, but only one of whom Is performing
the duties of the offices. The men who
were elected at the last election, as shown
by the returns of the judges and clerks of
elections, have gone before Judge Towner
and asked permission to begin proceedings
In quo warranto to test the rights of their
opponents to hold the offices. Judge
Towner granted this permission. The cases
will be tried In the August term of the
Union county district court and will be
watched with much Interest not only by
the citizens of Lorlmer and Union county,
but by many all over tbe state, as some
Interesting points of law will be Involved.
It Is quite possible that the cases will be
carried to the supreme court, bs much local
feeling has developed and both sides are
determined and obstinate.

Davenport Republican: 1 H. S. Kneedler,
for four years In the newspaper business
in Boone, is now in the restaurant busi
ness In Los Angeles. Reports were gener
ally circulated as to his change of avoca

to know tho facts, so the editor of the
Boone News wrote Mr. Kneedler and not
the following suggestive reply:
"I am In receipt of your letter of May

ueal of curiosity as to my present avoca

perfectly correct. Just two months ago I

of twenty-four hours, and I am sure the
old friends you refer to will be glad to
know that I have made more money In the
two months than 1 did during the four
years I was In Boone. I opened a branch
restaurant at one of our faxhlonnble beach

Secretary Shaw Is reported to be crazed
over the subject of horseback riding and
the newspaper stories which drift back
to Iowa concerning his equestrian feats are
not altogether without foundation.
Newman and Pickell of Des Moines called
upon the secretary and almost the first
thing the latter did was to offer them the
use of his two splendid saddle horses for
the forenoon. Then, remembering that one
of them was a trifle skittish at the cars,
and that the other had his own peculiar
traits, the secretary shook his head doubt
fully and suld:
"I wish 1 could go along with you.
Then came some more words of caution
and advice regarding the way to handle
the animals. Captain Pickell, chafing un
der the restraint, said:
"You must remember, Mr. Secretary, that
we were both In the cavalry."
"True enough,'" declared the secretary,
but added that he wished he could go
Then it was suggested that the trip be
put off until afternoon so that the sec
retary could be one of the party. But
before the tlrne arrived the president called
up the secretary of the treasury and re
quested that he go horseback riding with
him, so that Newman and Pickell did not

governor of Iowa at his best in the saddle
The two Iowans took dinner with Captain
Hull, saw Speaker Henderson and other
members of the delegation, besides a large
number of lowans who are employed In
the different departments.
Davenport Times: Nearly every member
of the Iowa delegation in congress has the
land fever. Colonel Hepburn says Iowa
land will go to $100 an acre, because It Is
actually worth that sum as a business
proposition; there Is no speculation In It
The soli will produce vegetation selling at
prices making land a profitable Investment
at that figure. Congressman Haugen has
such confidence In Iowa land that he takes
In everything he can get hold of at prevail
ing prices and lets go of not an aero.
Senator Polllver is perhaps the' most en
thusiastic "Iowa land man In Washington
He has talked hundred-dollar land for two
years and Buys now that price Is almost
in sight. The senator owns a fine farm In
Webster county and he says no man can
buy It. Said he: "If I should sell those
broad acres at $100 per acre It would give
me quite a sum of money. I might invest
the money In some apparently safe and
profitable enterprise; the enterprise mlvht
fail and I should be penniless. With that
farm In my possession poverty can have no
terrors for me. There will always be a
good living for myself and family upon that
farm. It cannot be bought."
The Des Motnen reader prints a letter
telling how Mrs. Conger, wife of the Amer
ican minister, upset all Chinese precedent
when she gave her unique reception not
long ago at the legation In Pekln. Eleven
Manchu women of the highest rank wer
asked to be present. It waa a daring thing
to invite them, because Intercourse with
foreigners Is frowned upon by such aristo
crats, and for them to go visiting In the
homes of outsiders was unheard of. But
Mrs. Conger, with rare enterprise, steered
through the web of old customs and carried
out her Idea. The remarkable event is
cleverly described by Katherlne M. Lowry,
who waa present as one of the guests.
Araty Aaeedvtee of Hubbard.
Des Moines Leader: "Yes. I was In ths
Twentieth lows." said CnaUla Jsacs Par-
melee, chief of police st the state house,
recently. "That was the regiment Judge
Hubbard was In. He wss captain of Com

were from Linn cojnty snd five companies

Captain Hubbard, and I knew him very
well. He was an excellent officer Bnd did
gcod service during the war. He looked
after his men well. He was of course
Cretty strict, but that was discipline, you
row, and he was a strict disciplinarian.
"Judge Hubbard was always ready for
a march or a fight, and stayed right by
his company from first to last. The Twen
tieth campaigned first in Missouri. It
fought at ITalrie Orove, which was one
of the hardest of the minor engagements
of the war. Later It was In the campaign
about Vlcksburg. It was then sent to Port
Hudson, and saw bard service In Louisiana
und at vanuos points in Texas. Towards
tho close of the war It took part In the
Mobile campaign, and was in one of the
last engagements of the war. the charge
on Fort Hlakely. Captain Hubbard was In
the campaigning to the last, and was in
tho fight at Fort Blakely.
"I remember one Incident of him In par
ticular. It was on one of the regiment's
forced marches. The order to halt had
been given to allow the men a rest. Cap
tain Hubbard supposed the regiment would
stop lonir enough to allow him to boll
some coffee. He rot out his old coffee
boiler, put some water In it and some sticks
under It and started a tire. He hail Just
