NO UNION OF STREET CAR MEN
Effort Falls Largely Through the
Opposition of the Older
The effort to organise a union among the
employes of the motor company In Council
Bluffs has proved a failure. This Is ad
mitted even by the men who were fore
most In urging Us formation. Many of
the old-time employes were opposed to the
proposition, giving as their reason that
they could not see how It would better
The new men, It Is said, were afraid to
take any prominent part In organising a
nlon, fearing that they might lose their
Jobs It the management got wind ot It.
Those opposed to the union did ao because
they state that their employment with the
company is aura ao long as they attend to
their duty, and that dismissals are only
brought about by cause or lack ot atten
tion to duty.
While there has been some dissatisfac
tion among the men recently owing to the
number of employes summarily let out,
tha men as a rule are contented and satis
fled with existing conditions.
This Is ths second time that an attempt
haa been made without aucceas to organise
union In Council Bluffs among the motor
company's employes, but several of th
men aay that In the event ot the organisa
tion being completed in Omaha and the
employes of the system In this city being
Subject to the Jurisdiction ot the same
management when the lines of the two
titles are merged, that a third attempt
may meet with better aucceas.

CAMPAIGN TO BE QUIET ONE
Thunder Makers Not to Bt Turned Loom in
DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS WITHOUT HOPE
Proposal Is Made to Have Oar at
Atms Fair Set Aside for' Each
of the Parties to Hold
The republican campaign In Pottawat
tamie county will not be opened up before
October 1, was the statement made yes
terday by George 8. Wright, chairman of
tha republican county central committee.
Chairman Wright favors a abort, campaign
thla year, as everything Indicates a sweep
ing republican victory throughout the
county, and tha need of a lengthy or vigor
ous campaign la not apparent. Candidates
are, however, not letting the grass grow
under their feet and ever since the re
publican county convention have been
doing more or less work on their own be
half. Chairman Wright aays he does not aee
the necessity for a "speaking" campaign
this fall, it being what Is termed an off
year in politics, and there being practically
no Issues before the people ao far aa the
county election la concerned. Chairman
Wright's opinion Is said to be shared by
a majority of the members of the county
central committee, but there are some
of the commlttel, also a few of the can
didates, who favor sending several well
known speakers through the county tn
October. The plan ot the county cam
paign will not be determined upon, how
ever, until the committee meets toward
the latter part of September.
This year the democratic candidates are
making the campaign on their own hook
and the democratic oounty central com
mittee haa no funds with which to make
any campaign. Thla being the situation.
Chairman Wright of the republican central
committee doea not see the necessslty of
expending good money In sending speakers
through the county and holding rallies.
Fair Wants Politicians.
The Pottawattamie county fair will be
held tn Avoca September 18 to 19, inclusive,
and the directors are anxious to have two
days reserved for the two political par
ties, provided they will agree to furnish
speakers of national reputation. John
Fletcher, republican committeeman from
Avoca, who ia also secretary of the County
Fair association, has laid this proposition
before Chairman Wright, recommending
that the republicans have a rally one day
during the fair. Chairman Wright, on the
other hand, is not in favor of it, but be
fore making any decision will confer with
the leading party candidates and the other
members of the committee. Congressman
Smith Is already booked tor an address
during the fair in Avoca and it la possible
that he may be Induced to make a political
addrees for the party instead. In this
case a day will be set apart for a repub
lican rally for the east end of the' county
during the Avoca fair. .
While the active campaign will not begin
until October 1, Chairman Wright ia not
idle and he ia keeping track of the situa
tion throughout the county. He is almost
dally in receipt of reports from the sev
eral county committeemen and these in
dicate that the republican ticket la eure
6f election from top to bottom this fall.
The democrats of Pottawattamie county
realize that the fight la practically a hope
less one, aa was indicated by the diffi
culty the Neola convention had in securing
candidates for some of the offices. They
are concentrating their efforts on Louis
Zurmuehlen for clerk of the district court
and it Is said are prepared to sacrifice
everything else ia order to secure hla
election. This is especially true in Coun
cil Bluffs, where Zurmuehlen has for eev
eral years been prominent In democratic
politics. ' Freeman Reed,, the republican
nominee for this office, is generally con
ceded to have a walkaway and will be re
elected by a sweeping majority. During
his Incumbency of the office Mr. Reed has
made an enviable record and the manner
in which the office has been conducted has
been above criticism. This is generally
acknowledged by all who have had busi
ness in the office. Mr. Reed haa many
frlenda in the democratic ranks and his
friends are confident that he will draw a
large number of votes from the opposition
In addition to tha vote of hla own party.
The situation waa briefly summed up
by Chairman Wright yeeterday 'when he
aid: "What ia the uae of expending
money and going to the trouble of an old
time campaign this fall? Pottawattamie
county is republican and will stay ao. The
county ticket will be elected from top
to bottom by healthy ' majorities. Even
the most ardent democrata are forced to

WADE STICKS TO HIS
After Eaeltlngr Experience Ha Finally
Lands His Prisoners
Frank Stots and Henry Hymer, two sol
dlera who, while under arrest, escaped from
the custody of Private B. L. Wade of Com
pany I, Twenty-second United States In
fantry, at Fort Crook Monday evening, are
behind the bars at the county Jail in thla
c!ty awaiting orders from the military au
thorities. The two prisoners under guard of Private
Wade, had been detailed to do some work
Monday afternoon near the fort and while
returning one ot the men' dropped behind.
Wade ordered the man to march ahead and
as the fellow passed him, he pretended to
stumble and made an effort to strike Wade.
The latter brought his bayonet Into play,
but before he could use It to effect the
other prltoner hit him over the head with
a shovel. Wade waa felled to the ground
and hla gun taken from him. The praoneri
then ordered Wade to march ahead and they
drove him Into the timber, where they de
liberated for quite a while what to do with
him. They first auggeeted killing him, but
finally decided this would be too dangerous,
so determined to make Wads accompany
With Wade their prisoner the two men
reached the vicinity of Plattamouth, where
Wade succeeded la telling a cltlien the
predicament' he was la and asking him to
secure an officer. Before tha officer arrived,
however. Wade's captors decided to move
on and made for Paclfio Junction. Before
leaving the vicinity ot Plattamouth the fel
lows took the cartridges, threw them In
one direction and Wade's rifle In another.
They then Informed Wade that he could re
turn to the fort. Wade then to!d them that
he dared not go back and made them be
lieve that under the clreumstaneea he con
sidered himself as much a fugitive as they
were. He suggested that he accompany
'them and they consented, not realising that
Wade had a plan to turn the tables on them.
Near noon they reached Al Haney's farm
near Bartlett and Wade volunteered to get
food for the three. He went to Haney's
house and explained the situation to him,
requesting him to aecure help and intercept
them at the crossroads after they had
eaten lunch. The three men partook of the
lunch provided by Haney while the latter
secured the services ot two neighbors,
Thomas Long and Charles Tavera, both of
whom armed themselves with revolvers and
proceeded to the crossrosds and lay In wait.
As Wade and hla two former prisoners
reached the crossroads, accompanied by
Haney, who had volunteered to show them
the nearest wsy to the next town, Long
and Tavers Jumped from their hiding place
and presenting their revolvers at Hymer
and Stoti, ordered them to hold up their
hands. Stots obeyed, but Hymer refused.
and Wade Jumped on blm. After a des
perate struggle Hymer was subdued. Both
men were then securely tied, placed In a
wagon and driven to the depot at Bartlett,
where they were placed on the train and
brought to Council Bluffs last evening. Pri
vate Wade and Mr. Haney guarding them
with loaded revolvers. The two prisoners,
with their hsnds tied behind their backs,
with ropes and their feet tied together,
with- Haney and Wade in uniform marching
behind them with loaded revolvers at
tracted considerable attention on Main
street as they marched from the depot to
the county Jail, where the two prisoners
were securely locked in a steel cell.

Iowa Crop Conditions.
Following ia the crop report for the
Iowa Weather bureau tor week ending
August 25, 1902:
The temperature of tbe last week waa
slightly below normal, with excessive
humidity and cloudiness. The rainfall was
lighter than during the preceding week,
though heavy downpours were reported at
several statlona, with severe local wind
storms. In the more favored districts
some threshing was done from stacks. Tbe
weather was generally too damp and
cloudy to dry out the grain remaining
In shocks and there are numeroua reports
of oats and wheat sprouting and rotting
In the fields. A very large percentage of
oats and considerable wheat have been ex
posed to serious damage.
The corn crop was badly blown down
in limited areas by severe wind squalls
on the night ot the 19th. But In the
larger part of the state the crop la in
fairly good condition, though its progress
haa been retarded by cool and wet weather.
Probably over 60 per cent ot the crop may
be classed as early corn, with possibility
of reaching full maturity during the first
half of September. There Is Imperatlvo
need of dry, warm weather very soon to
fully mature the bulk ot the crop.
