'The attention of 'the Board of Education
of this city has been called to the compul

So far the new lew has not -been dis

tsrdsy that some action would probably be
taken at 'the meeting' Tuesday, . August 13.

Sargent gave It as hla opinion that In order

At the meeting of .the board on August

dition to the usual duties the enumerators
will be required under tbe previsions of
the new law to take a separate list of all
children between the ages of 7 and 14. this
being the class ot children to which the
new compulsory' education . law applies.
Under , tha new law, parents , or guardians
of children between the ages of 7 and 14

for at leaat twelve weeks out of each year,
protided they do not reslds more than
two miles from a school house. For every

Tb law provides that the board of school
directors may at the "annual .meeting
appoint o or more truant officers who
shall aerve for ego year. Thla officer may
be a countable or member of the police
force. The Board of Education of this city
hoids twe what are called "annual" meet
inga each year.- One In March and the
sscond tn September. If It should be held
that the annua! meeting ot the board is

after the ' new school year opens. This

Throng; a Oleowoed
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, Aag. 3. (8peclal.) There
were not many interesting developments In
the Flnkelsteln -murder case today. After
what they regarded as a hard struggle with
the police the friends of Hsrry Levlch, one
of the accused, persons, secured his re
lease from Jail this afternoon under an
order from the district - court. . Ball wa
fixed at $3,000. The police had been trying
to keep both Levlch and Walker hid from
their friend In the hope they. might secur
from them something to Incriminate them
In th murder. Th friends ot Levlch were
many and they became highly Indignant at
the actions of the police. They finally
forced tbe police to produce the two men
and arraign them- la Justice court The
preliminary trial was fixed for next week.
But this did not satisfy, them and today
they carried it into district court before
Judge McHenry and a long controversy
followed over the right of the district Judgo
to exercise Jurisdiction la a case before
It hsa been passed on by a Justice of the
peace. Judge McHenry decided he had au
thority. The attorneys agreed upon a ball
of 3,500 for the two men and an order
was made for this. Levlch Immediately se
cured bail.' '' -' '''
This morning the police arrested a col
ored woman named Nellie Wells, supposed
to have been intimate with Walker, and
they are -undertaking to get some evidence
from her to the action of Walker. She
pretest innocence. -
Levlek Talks for First Ttsae.
When Levlch waa released ' on ball he
for tb first time talked tor publication
gnd said: - . .
"I never had any hand In the killing of
Isaac Flnkelsteln. . The fact 1 he Is the
last man on this earth that would prompt
me to commit so foul a crime. Isaae
Flnkelsteln was my friend. The day before
the murder I loaned' htm my horse and
buggy to ,go acros th river to ae a party
for . whom he went bond. ' I did it because
he was my friend. ' We Hebrew may have
differences, but they, are soon settled and
there ia an end to It."
When asked it he had had the conver
sation with Chief Brackett accredited to
him, In which he I said to have made the
remark that "he would get even" with
Flnkelateln for1 something th latter is
supposed to have done, Levlch said: .
"1 remember very well the conversation.
I told the chief one day that I would get
Flnkelsteln' 'top knot'; If he didn't quit
going after me. It waV for something or
other . 'Fink ' had don and I was angry
about It I tell you fight now that I had
no more Intention , of harming 'Fink' than
I have of you right atJ thla mtnut. .He
had probably made the Wme remark con
cerning me and didn't toean it and I never
would hold it against. him,
"Yes, you may sartor me that I am
convinced this' ie all' eschen 'on the part
of Chief of Police Ffe. Brackett and th
administration. Why ''don't J they go out
and look for someone t!se instead of con
centrating their forces around -met It 1
because they want to protect the gamblers.
They have failed- to produce a ingle hit
of evidence against meu 1 They have re
peatedly 'sweat' me and the nigger and
got nothing . for their trouble. It laoka
aa though Brackett waa trying to get blood"!
out .of a turnip. Well, all I have to aay
for htm 1 that he will, have a merry time
In trying to prove me guilty. My con
science is clear and that Is mors than he
I able to aay and I'll bet him money.
- Had Made Vp.
.'1 want to say again that I never had
any bad feeling for Flnkelsteln only in
the way I' told you. Of oourse we Hebrew
have our difference Just like any other
people, but we are closer than other peo
ple. If I had had murder, in my heart I
never would have loaned Fink my buggy
on that day.. .W were friends then and
that was tbe day before the murder and
several days after the conversation I had
with Brackett In which I told him Fink
and I had had trouble."
.Th detective are firmly convinced they
are on the right track desplt th protesta
tions of innocence by. Levlch. They aay
that in the sweating . processes th two
men fall to tell straight stories; thst their
toriea were disconnected and of a charac
ter that created suspicion. This taken in
connection with the threat that Levlch
Is said to .have made concerning Flnkel
steln they ssy. is conclusive reason why
thy should, bold them without bait
