TROUBLE FOR FAKE RAlERS
Leon Loiier and Ed Moon Are Now Under
Arrest in Denver.
INDICTMENT STANDS AGAINST THEM HERE
Accused of Rein Tardea to the tele
brated Webb City Fraud, by
Which Many Were Fleered
Oat of Money.
Sheriff Cousins received a dispatch yes
terday announcing the arrest of Leon Lo
iier and Ed Moore In Denver. Colo. The
men are under Indictment here on charge
of conspiring to defraud Charles Gregory
and William Barker of this city In connec
tion with an alleged fake foot race at Webb
City, Mo., last January. Anticipating their
early arrest Sheriff Cousins two days ago
sent to Pes Moines for requisition papers,
and as soon as they reach him will start
for Denver to bring the men back, tinder
the indictment their ball has been placed
at $2,000 each.
Leon Lozfer, who has made Council Bluffs
his home for a number of years, Is a well
known sprinter. It Is alleged thst- he and
Ed Moore "framed" up the deal whereby
Gregory and Barker were induced to go to
Webb City and part with their bank roll,
amounting to over $5,000.
According to the testimony of Gregory
and Barker before the grand Jury, they were
Induced by Loiter and Moore to go to Webb
City to witness and place their money on a
foot race between Loxler and John Grim,
who is known In sporting circles as "Cash"
Orim. They were given to understand that
the race was a dead cinch for Orim, but that
the Webb City people were prepared to
place their good money on Lozler. Grim is
considered to be by far the faster sprinter
of the two, but when he looked like win
ning the race he stumbled and fell and Lo
zler came under the tape first.
When they had parted with their money
Gregory and Barker tumbled to the fact
that they had been played tor suckers and
Incidentally they learned that there were
others, and among the number friends of
theirs in Council Bluffs.
Charles Huber. alderman from the First
ward, testified before the grand Jury that
three years ago be had been Induced to go
to Webb City on a similar errand and had
been mulcted to the tune of $1,800. Huber,
however, 'who is a giant In stature and
physical strength, recovered his money
from the Webb City syndicate at the point
of a revolver. John Black of Grlswold,
former member of the Board of County
Supervisors, also had been caught In the
drag-net of the Webb City outfit and
dropped $7,000 In the same manner that
Gregory and Parker lost their wealth. Black
in some manner succeeded In Inducing the
Webb City backers to return him his
Charles Morse, a traveling man. and
Charles Nickolson, former chief of the
Council Bluffs fire department, testified be
fore the grand Jury to being approached by
Mooro and offered Inducements to go to
Webb City to assist In carrying out the
deal, but they declined. The testimony be
fore the grand Jury showed that Lozter ad
mitted that he and Moore each received
$1,800 for their part In the alleged fake
It Is alleged that the entire deal to de
fraud Gregory and Barker was fixed up In
this city, hence the indictments here.

traders Fall to Register.
As had been antclpated the last day of
registration, yesterday, for the election
next Tuesday resulted In the addition of
several hundred names to the lists. A rough
estimate made last night when the regis
tration boards closed their books at 9
o'clock Indicated that 600 names had been
registered durlngvtbe day. This, with the
registration on the first two days will bring
up the total to close upon 800. Both par
ties had their workers out yesterday round
ing up the stay-at-homes and every effort
was made to secure a full registration.
There was nothing to Indicate that any
large number of the men employed on the
Great Western construction registered, and
the returns from the precincts In which the
camps are located showed that the reported
scheme of the democrats to register the
graders hsd failed to work.

Completed and Is Generally Ger

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. The following
summary of crop conditions for the month
of October was iesued by the Weather bu
Tho month, as a whole, was very mild,
with a generally sufficient rainfall, which
over a large part of the Atlantic coast and
gulf districts resulted 111 little Injury, ex
cept in the early part of tbe month.
In the central Valleys the conditions are
generally favorable for hardening corn, but
a considerable portion of the crop In thu
lake region and over the northern portions
of the Mississippi and Missouri valleys la
Rnlns caused considerable Injury to cot
ton during the early part of the month,
especially in the central and western por
tions of the bc.lt. The weather of the
middle and latter part of the month waa
more favorable' and the-development of a
fair top crop In some localities resulted.
At the alosft of the month picking was atlll
in progress, and with delay of frosts much
will yet be gathered, the most favorable
prospects for a top crop being reported
from northern and central Texas.
Winter wheat seeding made satisfactory
progress and was largely completed by the
close of the month In the principal winter
states. The early sown has, as a rule,
germinated well, good stands being gen
erally reported. Fly is, however, quite
extensively reported from the states of
Ohio and central Mississippi valleys.

Colonial Secretary Chamberlain.
When- Count Wolff-Metternlch. the Ger
man ambassador In London, was here In
Auguat he told the British ambassador, Sir
Frank C. Laecelles, that the state of En
glish opinion toward Germany troubled him
and he expressed regret at the fact that
tbe British foreign office apparently felt
toward the German government as coldly
as did the British public.
The eount added that the British foreign
office absolutely would not lift a finger to
co-operate with German diplomacy. In any
part of the world anything Germany sug
gested was treated with Indifference and
German policy was looked upon without
Ambassador Lascelles replied that If
such was the count's experience, he, too,
regretted it. But what could the British
ministers think when one of them was
treated as Mr. Chamberlain had been
treated? Emperor William during hla visit
to England two years ago talked over with
Mr. Chamberlain the desirability of a frank
understanding between the United States.
Great Britain and Germany regarding com
mon action abroad where their Interests
were In common, or where a single power
slone waa Interested.
Mr. Chamberlain approved the Idea and
his Anglo-Germano-American speech fol
lowed. Chancellor von Buelow repudiated
the whole thing and made Mr. Chamber
lain in some degree ridiculous.
The conversation of which the foregoing
Is the substance was repeated by Count
Wolff-Metternlch to one or two of his
diplomatic associates and obtained a lim

CRITICISE, FORMER DIPLOMAT
Sir Horace Rnmbold ft Irs I'p Hornet's
Nest by Making Public Once
LONDON, Nov. L No recent publication
has stirred up more comment, adverse and
otherwise, than the Austrian reminiscences
of Sir Rumbold, the former British am
bassador at Vienna, published In the Na
The continental press, outside of Austria,
Is unanimous in censuring the outspoken
writer. The National Zeitung of Berlin,
protesting against Sir Horace's character
ization of Germany as "England's poten
tially dangerous and unrelenting foe," asks
whether Great Britain has many "such
curious diplomats," who take advantage of
their retirement from official life to place
at the disposal of their countrymen ex
periences gained during active service.
The Dally Chronicle in the same con
nection, raises tbe question:
"Should diplomats ever be unmuzzled.'"
While Sir Horace has been very India- .
creet. it must be admitted that it is some
times the best part of discretion to look
facts fairly in the face. This country de
sires to live In peace and concord with nil
the other powers, and we cannot approve
any attempt to establish International ven
dettas. But It Is the part of prudence to
recognize potential foes. The very proees
of recognition sometimes averts their po
tentiality. Incidentally, a correspondent of the Dally
Chronicle contributes a story, for which he
vouches, to the effect that during the South
African war Emperor Francis Joseph sent
Lord Roberts sn Austrian field gun of a
new pattern, which was effectively used
against the Boers during the advance on
