CHARGE MURDER TO SMITH
Hsld by Osroner to Answer for the Bhssting
of Chtrlet Edwardi.
MEN HAD QUARRELED EARLIER IN NIGHT
Three Boys Who Were Talking; with
Edwards Jaai Before the Shoot
ing; the Principal Wit
nesses at Inquest.
Coroner Treynor of this city held an In
quest yesterday afternoon at, Avoca. over
Charles Edwards, a colored man who was
shot and killed Thursday night at the Rock
Island depot. In that place. As a result of
the inquest, Irwin Smith, also colored, was
held on the charge of having killed Edwards.
Smith waa locked up In the county Jail at
The principal testimony at the Inquest
was that of three young white lads, who
were sitting and talking with Edwards when
he was shot. They testified that they were
sitting on the platform of the depot with
Edwards who told them that earlier In the
night he had trouble with another negro
named Irvln Smith, and that Smith had
struck him over the head with a piece of
gas pipe. Inflicting a severe wound. While
they were talking a man appeared about
twenty feet In front of them and called out
"Is that you, D. C.," the nickname by which
Edwards was known by his friends. Before
Edwards had time to answer, the man shot
and Edwards started to Ms feet. Another
shot was fired and Edwards stumbled back
dead. The boys scattered and ran, and the
man who did the shooting also ran and dis
appeared up an alley.
The boys after going to a livery barn
and telling about the shooting returned to
the depot where Mayor Hazen had taken
charge of the body. Smith, who was carry
ing a bundle, also showed up at the depot
and looking at Edwards said "Yes, that Is
D. C. aure enough." The boys recognized
his voice as that of the man who had ad
dressed Edwards before shooting him and
they so Informed Mayor Hazen, who ordered
Smith placed under arrest. Smith denied
shooting Edwards. The boys also testified
that the man who did the shooting carrted
a bundle In one hand.
Edwards and Smith are well known to the
police, both of this city and Omaha. About
three years ago Edwards.and a colored wo
man named Frankie Fashion, were arrested
for robbing a white man In an old rookery
on Broadway. The woman was convicted
and sent to the penitentiary, but the evi
dence against Edwards was lacking and he
was acquitted. The letter signed "Frankie"
found on Edwards at Avoca was supposedly
from this woman, as he Is known to have
taken up with her after her release from
Smith was arrested In Council Bluffs a few
years ago, charged with being Implicated
with another negro in robbing a white man
of a gold watch. He was also arrested on
several occasions for vagrancy.

TAKE ROAD FUND INTO COURT
Kfforta to . Reach Agreement Over
Its Distribution Proves
As a result of a conference between Al
derman McDonald, chairman of the streets
and alleys committee, ancV County. Super
visor Baker yesterday morning it Is likely
that the controversy between the city and
the county board over the portion ot the
county road fund levied within the cor
porate limits of Council Bluffs will be
raken into the courts with a view of hav
ing the city's rights in the matter finally
In previous years the county has turned
over to the city 60 per cent of the por
tion of the fund collected In the city for
the municipal authorities to expend as
they deemed best, the county retaining the
other 40 per cent and expending It on the
county roads. The city was willing to ac
cept the same proposition this year, but
Supervisor Baker flatly refused to consent
to any such disposition of the fund. Ho
took the position that the law intended
that while the city had the power to di
rect where the money should be expended,
the county alone should do the work and
expend the fund.
When it was discovered a tew weeks
ago that the streets and alleys fund wad
practically depleted the city was all the
more anxious to secure the exclusive con
trol of a portion of the county road fund
as in former years snd overtures were
made to Supervisor Baker..' Colonel Baker,
however, remained obdurate, although on
one occasion It is eaid he offered to let
the city have 40 per cent of the fund, he
to retain the control of the expenditure
of the remaining 60 per cent. To this the
aireols and alleys committee would not
listen. Recently further trouble between
the streets and alleys committee and
Colonel Baker arose, owing, it Is said, to
Colonel Baker's refusal to expend the
money as directed by the committee.
The conference between Alderman Mc
Donald and Colonel Baker yesterday was
for the purpose of trying to arrive at
some agreement satisfactory to both sides,
but It failed. The city officials assert that
Colonel Baker is too exacting In bis de
Davis sella paints.

NO EFFECT IN THE SECOND
Withdrawal of Speaker Henderson
Has Not Alarmed Republicans
In that Section of Iowa.
CLINTON, la.. Sept. 19. (Special.) The
republicans of this, the Second Iowa dis
trict, are not alarmed tn the least over
the withdrawal of Speaker Henderson. In
fact, the action of the speaker and the
discussion which has followed has stirred
up considerable enthusiasm, Just what Is
always needed in an off year.
Everybody is talking politics now and
each has his opinion and the result will
be much more Interest in the campaign
than would have been had nothing oc
curred to arouse the people. Further
more, the republicans of the Second dis
trict, at least a large majority of them,
favor a revision of the tariff and stand
on the Iowa platform.
It Is propable that there Is nota dis
trict in the state where the Iowa plat
form has more supporters than in the
Second. All of the republican papers, with
the exception of one, agree In every par
ticular with the Des Moines platform.
There will be no division In the district
and Mr. Hoffman, the republican nominee,
will receive hearty support of every re
publican. Some of the democratic papers ef the
district are publishing sensational stories
to the effect that there will be a split In
the republican ranks over the Henderson
withdrawal, but there is absolutely no foun
dation for such reports. These papers are
making every possible effort to stir up
friction, but in this they will be unsuc
cessful. The republicans of the district feel
greatly outuuraseJ over the present out
look. There is no question but Mr. Hoff
man will put up a strong campaign. He
Is not as polished a man as the demo
cratic nominee, but is a much better vote
getter. He especially attracts those liv
ing in the rural districts and the work
Ingmen. He Is a plain, everyday man, and
at once impresses one. with bis honesty
and sterling worth.
Judge Wade, the democratic nominee, will
not be able to make friends among the
class alluded to like his opponent. Mr.
Wade is a gifted orator,' however, of the
nollshed and exclusive order, which will
nrove renulslve to manv of the voters of
the district. Mr. Hoffman is a German ,
and speaks that language, and will be a
strong favorite among the many Germans
of the district.

BURLINGTON. la., Sept. 19 (Special.)
Burlington la In the throes of an epidemic
of burglary. During the last week a dozen
residences were looted In different parti
of the city. Nothing of vslue has been
taken, the burglars In several cases stupidly
overlooking watches and other Jewelry and
money In the houses they have visited.
Only the homes of the humbler class of
citizens have been disturbed, the prowlers
fighting shy of the residences of the rich.
In spite of the fact that the police have
Increased their vigilance tenfold, the house
breaking operations continue. Last night
two burglaries occurred In different parts
of the city, fully two miles apart, almost
simultaneously. In both cases, however,
the burglars were frightened away before
they could steal anything. It Is thought
that a regularly organized gang is at work
and when they finish the town, they will
move to some other place. Matters have
come to such a pass that the police have
orders to stop and question everyone found
on the streets after midnight. If they can
not give a good account of themselves
they will be locked up.
FATE OF WOMAN IN DOUBT

vis, cut about the head, wrist and legs;
John Lynch, badly cut about the face and
head, are the only persons known to have
been Injured by the collapse of the post
office In this city yesterday.
At the time of the disaster there were
known to have been four people In the
postomce lobby, one woman and three
men. The presence of Nehmlah Davis, a
prominent attorney, and John Lynch, clerk
of tho district court, account for two of
the three men.
The names of the woman and the third
man could not be ascertained. It la
known, however, that the man escaped,
but no word has been received regarding
the fate of the woman. Assistant Post
master Harry Frank and Miss Delia Fos
ter were absent when the accident oc
curred, Postmaster Peter Oelso being in
charge. The accident was evidently caused
by the placing of about 3,000 brick on the
postomce roof. The bricks were taken
from the main portion of the building ad
joining, with a view of making provision
for the construction ot an opera house.
