MAKE CHARGES OF FRAUD
Former Street Supervisor Taylor Ac.
rased of Man(pnlatIoa of Poll
The long expected report of Aldermen
Tlnley and Huber, the committee appointed
to Investigate the books and accounts of
former Street Supervisor Taylor, made Its
appearance at the meetlug of the city coun
cil last night and the charges made by the
committee treated quite a sensation. The
report was as follows:
The committee to whom was referred for
inVCPtliTHtlnn tha rennrt rt 11 C Tatrlnr a-
urnri supervisor or this city, respectfully
lf)'OllB u IU1IOWB
That the time book and the records nf the
supervisor during his term of office are In
such condition that It Is very difficult to
determine what was expended, the number
of men who worked for the city or the time
for which the men were employed.
, That the accounts were very poorly kept
and that no satisfactory voucher waa taken
for men employed upon the streets working
out poll tax for the Hty. '
Wa And upon Investigation that poll tax
waa collected from the following named
cltixena: C. W. Byers. F. W. Wesner, H. A.
Qulnn. Mr. Harrington, residing at 1004
Seventh avenue: Dr. Melner. E. W. Loomls.
Oscar Keellne. J. H. Schlcketanx. A. Shonta
C. R. Shultz. V. Hutchinson, Mr. Herrlck
and Peter Madison; that each of these men
paid $3 In order to have their poll tax
wor.eu oui upon me streets, and that Mr.
Taylor gave a receipt for the poll tax, but
that no labor was performed upon the
streets on account thereof.
orn- our Investigation we are satisfied
that there were several men soliciting poll
tax notices from citizens who are liable to
Pay poll tax. and who presented them to
Mr. Taylor, the street supervisor, and ob
tained from him receipts for labor without
performing any labor, and that thev there
upon collected from the persons liable for
the poll tax, and that thereby the city was
defrauded out of a large amount of labor
upon Its streets by this procedure.
We recommend that the vouchers and re
port ol the street supervisor be delivered
to the city clerk, to be by him retained un
til the convening of the next grand Jury,
and we believe we will be able to furnish
the names of the witnesses necessary to
prove that Street Supervisor Taylor on
numerous occasions delivered receipts for
labor performed upon the streets without
having the labor performed, and author
ized the persons to whom the receipts were
delivered to collect the amount of the poll
tax. and that In different ways the city
waa defrauded out of a large amount of
money. M. H. TINf.KY.

Contractor Wlckham succeeded In Indu
cing the city council to grant him a fur

Hon. George F. Wright returned yester
day morning from California, where he has
been since Irst May In the Interest of the
Midland Pacific Railway company, which
proposes constructing a line about 150 miles
In length from Bakersfleld. In Kern county,
California, to the Pacific coast at a point
near Port Harford. The purpose of the
road Is to secure means of conveying the
oil product of that section of California
to the coast at a rate which will Insure
tho producer some profit. During the time
he was in California Mr. Wright has been
engaged In securing the right of way for
this projected railroad, for which the line
has been surveyed and the estimates made.
The projected road has now been bonded
for $20,000 a mile and the parties Interested
are now in New York floating the bonds
and have so far met with the best of en
couragement. As soon as the bonds are
floated work on the construction of the
railroad will be begun. Mr. Wright says
that Kern county, California, can produce
more oil than any section in the United
States, Texas not excepted. The company
which Mr. Wright represents has made con
tracts with the oil producers of that sec
tion of California under which they have
agreed to ship 6,000 barrels a day for ten
years, the rate of transportation to the
eoaBt not to exceed 15 cents a barrel. By
this contract the producers, Mr. Wright
says, will save 20 cents a barrel and thus
Insure a profit. Mr. Wright says that he
also succeeded In making a very profitable
contract with the Rothschilds for the hand
ling of a large portion or the oil output of
that section of the country.

ELDORA, la.. Nov. 3. (Special.) A most
peculiar transaction In connection with the
selling of a church four miles east of thts
city, belonging to the Cumberland Pres
byterian society, has Just been discovered
by an agent of the society sent out to In
vestigate the condition of the church here.
The church building was one of the best
and most substantial country churches In
the county. It appears that for the past
few years the members of the church have
not been very harmonious and for some
months no regular service had been held
In the church. Something like a year ago
one Bohn. representing himself to be a
bible missionary of the American Bible so
ciety, spent several months In this county
selling bibles and doing some preaching.
Shortly before leaving the county he sold

Indignation of the members of the church
when It was learned that their bandBome
building had been torn down and sold to a
German farmer and by him made Into a
barn. It appears that not a single member
of the church bad any knowledge of tho
transaction. An effort is now being tuado
to locate Mr. Bohn. The sequel to this
audacious piece ot grand larceny will be
looked for by a large circle of Intereatod

Largo Crowd at Dei Moines Gathers to Hear

SPEAKS AT NEWTON IN THE AFTERNOON

C'r.ses During; the
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Nov. 3. (Special.) Secre
tary Shaw ot Prssldent Roosevelt's cabinet
closed the political campaign In this city
this evening by addressing a great crowd
at the Auditorium. It was in every way a
successful political meeting. No other rally
had been held .here during the campaign,
and thts was the first appearance before a
Des Moines 'audience of Secretary Shaw
since he left the, governor's chair and en
tered the cabinet There was consequently
a great deslrto- to hear him. There was
also great Interest In view of the fact that
he is known to be opposed to the Interpreta
tion of the Iowa platform which has been
made by some of the local politicians, and
It was understood he would express himself
freely on the subject. Secretary Shaw had
gone to Newton at noon and addressed a
political rally for Jasper county In tho
afternoon. A delegation of his Des Moines
friends went to Newton and returned with
htm on a special train after the Newton
meeting. Secretary Shaw was feeling well
after bis extended speaking tour and de
livered a splendid address ot considerable
length on the political Issues, presenting
the views he has expressed repeatedly, and
particularly discussing the tariff question
In opposition to all tree trade arguments.
Other addresses were made by Lafe Young
and Judge Prouty. Governor A. B. Cum
mins presided at the meeting and although
his voice was hoarse from speaking, opened
the meeting with a few general remarks.
It Is the intention of Secretary Shaw to
cast his vote in his home precinct In Denl
son, and he left tonight on a late train to
be at home early on election day. He will
then immediately return to Washington.
The report ot the clerk of courts for Polk
county, which was completed today and
filed with the secretary ot state, shows that
there has been an unusual number of con
victions In the county during the last year.
From September 1, 1901, to the 1st of last
September the number of convictions for
criminal offenses in the courts here was
seventy-eight, but since September 1 there
have been at least twenty-five additional
convictions, bringing the number up to
over 100. Thero were convictions In three
murder cases and one tor manslaughter.
Three convictions for burglary have been
had. There are but few cases left for con
sideration by the court, and an unusual
record baa been made ot cleaning up the
Oppose n Truant School.
The school board of East Des Moines,
having determined that It was necessary
to establish a truant school under the new
law tor compulsory education, located said
school in the building designed for a pri
mary department recently finished on East
Fourteenth street. As soon as It became
known to the prospective patrons ot this
school that it was to be made Into a truant
school, or rather that a room was to be
set apart in the building tor truants for
the entire East Des Moines district, there
were loud protests and the patrons have
signed a big petition to the school board to
have the plans changed. A meeting was
held and a committee appointed, which will
wait ou the school board and ask that In
stead of having the truant school In one
of the public school buildings the boar!
rent a room especially for this purpose. It
Is ths first attempt of any school board In
the state to estabHsh a truant school.

IOWA FALLS, la., Nov. . (Speclsl.)
Neil Bump, a young farmer living south of
here, was brought to Ellsworth bokpital
yesterday to have a er gunsnot wound'
dressed. He Is seriously if not fatally
wounded. He had planned to go duck hunt
ing, and auile attending to some other
work laid his gun, which he did not know
was loaded, on top of a double wagon box
filled with corn. Later he reached for the
gun, (rasping It by the muszle and dragging
It toward him. The trigger caught on the
edge of the wagon box and the ma.n received
the full load In the hip and one ot his
hands. The wound is regarded as a serious
one on account of Its location, as well as
from the fact that the shot and wadding
were both deeply .imbodded In tho flesh.
He is a young, man and strong physically,
and unless blood poison or some other com
plication should set. in there is a chance
for him to recover.
KILLING STILL A MYSTERY
Coroner Obtalas No Clue to Cause
of Death of Constable
ADAIR, la., Nov. 3. (Special.) Local offi
cers are completely baffled by a strange
murder. W. D. Schneck was found dead
near the front gate at his home In this city
early Saturday morning. He had a bullet
hole in his head and near him on the ground
lay a revolver, In one chamber of which
was a csrtrldge which had been discharged.
The circumstances surrounding the death
ot the man are rather mysterious. He was
a constsble of Adair township and Friday
night was appointed as one ot the special
police to patrol the streets on account of
anticipated depredations by Hollowe'en par
ties. He left home shortly after supper time
and the last seen ot him alive was about 0
o'clock Friday night.
When found his clothes were covered with
mud and his umbrella was found fully two
blocks from where his body was found. Ho
bad evidently been dead for some hours, as
his limbs were stiff and rigid. '
One thing that leads to the murder the
ory and discounts any theory of suicide Is
that when ha left home he was known to
have some money, several dollars, in fact,
and when found there was not a cent in his
pockets. Then, too, his umbrella being found
so far from where the body was lends color
to ths theory.
Mr. Scbnack was a man about 30 years
of age and wes of good habits. He was a
laboring man and by industry and economy
had laid up sufficient money to buy a home,
whers his wife snd three children live.

WEBSTER CITY. Ia., Nov. 3. (Special.)
Ed Bently of this city pulled a small box
containing about eighty rattlesnakes from
the Boone river. The box was floating
down tne river and was pulled in by Bently
merely through curiosity. The loathsome
find was made near the old Chase mill.
Bently was fishing at the time. He noticed
a small box coming down the river, and as
It came near to where he was ha simply
pulled it ashore and was frightened to find
it packed tightly with slimy snakes. The
box was about a foot and a half or two
feet square, and on one side was covered
with a closely woven screen. The eighty
snakes were packed within this small space.
Some were dead and some were alive;
some large and . some small. Among the
lot wero also some "Kentucky whips." Tbo
largest rattler was alive and was between
five and six feet long. Among the find
were a large number of "baby" snakes. All
The box was probably a consignment to
some snake show which had been lost or
misplaced somewhere. As to how It came
to be In the river, however, is a mystery.
The snakes which were dead had probably
died from starvation. Tho rattlers were
fierce and vicious from their long fast.
Several of them were exceedingly largo
and fine specimens of their variety.
