Confession to Chief of Polioe.

En erased In Fight.
The mystery surrounding the assault on
Clark W. Moyer, the railway mail clerk,
Saturday night, which resulted In his
death at 6t. Bernard's hospital Sunday
morning, wss cleared up yesterday after
noon at the Inquest. Otto W. Roderick,
the suspect arrested by the police Sunday
night, made a confession. In which he ad
mitted being the person who had struck
Moyer, felling him to the ground. He
claimed that Moyer struck at btm first and
that when he hit back he had no Idea that
Moyer bad been badly hurt.
The coroner's Jury, consisting of O. H.
Lucas, J. W. Scott and A. J. Stephenson,
brought In a verdict to the effect that
Moyer came to his death as the result of
a blow or blows Inflicted by Otto W. Rode
rick, the latter being aided and abetted by
one John Williams.
Williams Is a farmhand working on the
Martin place, near the Iowa School for the
Deaf. He was arrested yesterday after
noon following the Inquest and it In the
county jail with Roderick. An Information
charging Roderick and Williams with the
murder of Moyer was filed In the court
of Justice Bryant yesterday afternoon. It at
expected that they will have their prelim
inary hearing some time today.
Roderick all of yesterday morning con
tinued to adhere to his story that he had
nothing to do with the assault on Moyer,
that he did not even know the man and
was not in the vicinity of the Creeton
House saloon at any time Saturday night.
After be had eaten his dinner and shortly
before the time arrived for the Inquest,
however, he broke down and admitted to
Chief of Police Tlbbitts that he waa the
man who had struck Moyer. He claimed
that he had only struck him after Moyer
had made two passes at him. Roderick's
statement to Chief Tlbblts, which was
substantially the same as he made at the
Inquest, wat as follows:
Statement of Roderick.
He said that he and John Williams had
taken sapper shortly before 9 o'clock at
Billy Gray's restaurant on . South Main
street, near Seventh avenue, and after
ward be and Williams had come uptown.
Shortly before midnight be and Williams
started to return down Main street. In
front of the Creeton House saloon they
passed a "bunch" of men. Someone In
the "bunch" made an Insulting remark to
Williams and the latter went back. He ad
vised Williams not to pay any attention to
It, but to come along. He then went back
to aasltt Williams and ' three of the men
in the crowd ran, ' but a heavy-set man,
wearing glasses, whom he afterward
learned' wat Moyer, struck at - him first 1
with his right and then with hit left hand.
He warded off both blows and then struck
Moyer with his left hand, knocked htm
down and he and Williams continued on
their way down South Main street. He
said that when he struck Moyer the latter
went backward and "kind of sunk down."
He did not stop to see It the man waa
seriously Injured, as he supposed It would
causo trouble.
He said he had not been In the Creston
House saloon that nlgfot and had not been
there for six weekt or two months. He
said he did not know Moyer and as far aa
ho knew had never met him. He said that
Moyer muttered something when he struck
at him. but he did not hear what be said.
He said he had never teen the three fel
lows who were with Moyer before and de
nied having had any trouble with them
earlier In the night. The three fellows
ran when he started to go after them. He
denied having told any person In Pabst'a
saloon that night that he had knocked out
Clark Moyer.
Contradicts Roderick.
Roderick's ttatement that he did not tell
anybody about knocking a man down In
front of the Creston House saloon was con
tradicted by two witnesses, Roy Jones, em
ployed as a cook In Gray'a restaurant, and
John Clary, who waa visiting J one Satur
day night. Jcdes testified that Roderick and
Williams came Into the restaurant about
midnight Saturday and that Roderick asked
for the loan of 25 centt with which te get
across the river. He taid that Roderick
told him he had had a fight near the Cres
ton houte with a big fellow who wore
glasses. Jonee told him he could not loan
him the money and Roderick, be said, then
told him to go to h 1. Jones told him that
place waa too hot for htm and Roderick, he
said, answered that he bad just put one
four-eyed there.
Clary's evidence waa In corroboration of
Jones' testimony.
Former Alderman E. C. Brown, testified
to finding Moyer lying unconscious on the
sidewalk In a pool of blood, with a wound
under hit right eye.
These were the only witnesses before the
Inquest, Coroner Treynor deciding that la
view of Roderick's admlsslona there wat
no need for further testimony at this
time. The jury then brought In the ver
diet aa above.
Roderick la a young man about 2S years
of age and clalma Council .Bluffs as hit
home. Hla wife lives In South Omaha, but
It Is said has been separated from her bus-
band for some time. Roderick la a laborer
and hat been arrested more than once by
the police for being drunk. He bad been
drinking Saturday night when be had the
trouble with Moyer.
Roderick In his statement said Moyer
waa wearing glasses and this It probably
true, at he usually wore them, but when
he waa found unconscious on the sidewalk
there was no sign of the glasses and they
have not been found tlpce.
Kelatlves of Meyer Csnlsg.
Word wat received yetterday afternoon
that a brother and sister of the dead man
would be here today to take charge of the
body. Moyer waa a member of the Knights
of Pythias In good standing. He belonged
to the lodge In Fairfield, la. John H
Merckens, county clerk of Jefferson county
at Fairfield, la a letter to City Clerk Phil
Hps yesterday, asked for Information con
cerning the death pf Moyer and stated that
the only relative of the dead man there wae
a brother, who waa a patient la the Insane
ward of the county hospital.
Roderick's ttatement that Moyer first
struck at him it not credited by those who
were acquainted with the dead man
Moyer, while known at a drinking man
and a frequenter of - saloons, was never
kii'jf n to raise hit hand against any man.
For quite a while he had been almost a
cripple, having within the latt two yeara
suffered two fracture of hit lega, and until
quite recently waa forced to walk with the
assistance of crutches.
The police are atlll trying to locate the
three young men said to have been with
Moyer at the time he left the saloon, at
they undoubtedly would be able to throw
considerable light on the tragedy. Now
that Roderick haa admitted to being the
person who struck Moyer and It has been
shown that they were not responsible for
the assault, the authorities are hopeful
thst tbey will come forward and tell of
their own free will all they know about
the affair.
Some Things Necessary Besides Im
planting the Tblaas In tke
Text Books.
Superintendent McManus' expectations
were realized yesterday at the enrollment
at the Pottawattamie County Normal In
stitute reached the 200 mark.
Miss Maud Summers in her lecture yes
terday morning on "Primary Methods"
made several suggestions as to how teach
ers might interest the children each month
during the year, especially at such times
as Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving, Christmas,
St. Valentine's day. Arbor day and na
tional holidays. For Hallowe'en she sug
gested that teachers have social gather
ings for the children from kindergartens
up to the fourth grade and by means of
stories teach them the history and mean
ing of the day. She pointed out the fact
that many timet the teachers fall to Im
press upon the minds of the children the
true meaning of Thanksgiving day and
suggested that they be told the story of
the Pilgrim Fathers. Christmas to some
she said, had come to mean selfishness.
The Idea of Christmas had by many
children Is to have more presents than
their little neighbor. They should be
taught different and taught to make their
own presents which they Intend to give
their playmatet and parent!. Above all
she suggested to teach them the story of
the Christ child. The birthdays of Wash
ington and Lincoln, she said, should be
especially emphasized in the public schools,
as this Is one of the great opportunities
of teaching patriotism to the pupils and a
true love for the Stars and Stripes. She
suggested that Memorial day be observed
la schools In much the same way as Wash
ington's and Lincoln'! birthday, thua ere
atlng a stronger spirit of love for the vet
erant who fought for their country in the
civil war.

pectea, result in the dismissal of the case

DES MOINES, June 30. (Special.) Mayor
Brenton this morning vetoed a resolution
which had passed the city council author
izing the use of asphalt for paving certain
streets In the eastern part of the city.
The mayor made his veto strictly on the
ground that the use of asphalt In Det
Moines would be Injurious to the brick
industry in the city.
The property owners bad petitioned for
asphalt paving on this atreet and there
are already a number of residence streets
in the western part of the city that are
paved with asphalt, but a protest came
from the manufacturers of brick In the
city, and the mayor will not allow the use
of asphalt on Des Molnet ttreets.
Nearly all the paving In Det Moines ia
with brick and It has nearly all been put
down In the last ten years. ' The entire
paving question will have to be opened up
again and the property owners who are In
terested and who will have to pay for the
brick will make an effort to force the city
to adopt asphalt where they want It.
In nearly all of the smaller towns of Iowa
brick ia used exclusively at a paving ma
terial, but the brick la nearly all made
in Dei Moines, where the clay la just right
for paving brick. It is feared by the brick
people that If asphalt It used here it will
induce the people of the towns and smaller
cities to dlsoard brick.
Strike Settlement Remote.
The arbitration committee of the Tradea
and Labor assembly and the 'special com
mittee named yesterday to advise with
them commenced a systematic canvass of
the city today to induce the usera of tele

of the companies In maintaining their fight

Crop Situation in Iowa.
Director Sage, of the local weather and
crop service, while he refuted to give a di
rect opinion relative to the amount of dam
age excessive ralna have already done In
Iowa, It extremely apprehensive at to the
outlook. Hia weekly weather and crop bul
letin, istued tomorrow, will be far from
encouraging, though it it likely the director
himself will hardly hazard a question aa
to the amount of Injury brought about by
the exceaslve rains and the exceedingly
low temperature for the month of June.
All depends on the character of weather
through the month of July. If it turns off
hot and dry the entire crop will be ruined.
Planta throw their roott deep into the
ground during dry weather to gather mois
ture. During wet teatont the roots lie
along the turface. Hot, parching weather
would have the effect of actually baking
the roots and destroying the plant. Con
siderable anxiety it therefore felt relative
to the character of weather during the com
ing month.
Sewage Disposal Plants.
The state board of control today adver
tised for bids . for new tewage disposal
plants at the hospital at Mt. Pleasant,

orphan'! home at Davenport. The bldi are
to be in by the 12th of the month.
There are three separate plans proposed,
one on the plan of the International Sew
age company of Boston and two on the
septlo tank system. It hai been found
that there ia no way of securing disposal
of the sewage at either of the Institu
tions by ordlnaray drainage and the state
hat been put to too much expense to care
for the waste. The board hopes to get
often for plans that will solve the prob
