Child Frightens Thief.
The little daughter of W. H. Busao, a
former member of the police department,
living at 705 South Sixth street, was awak
ened about 5 o'clock yesterday by a thief
who had entered her room. The little
girl, thinking the Intruder was her father,
called out to iim, asking him what be
wanted. The fellow dashed from the room
Into tho dining room adjoining and through
an open window. In his hasty flight the
thief carried the window curtains with him.
Buase, awakened by the noise of the fel
low jumping through the window, seised his
revolver and took one shot at the thief
as he sped towards the alley, but missed
him. Investigation showed that the un
welcome visitor had gained entrance by
climbing on a aaw horse and opening the
dining room window through which he
plunged head foremost In his escape. The
fellow secured a gold hunting case watch
which was on the bureau in the little girl's

Modj Enough to Maet Demands in All
Fundi Except Ona.
Practically All the Appropriation
laed la In KIret Six Months,
While Other Faadi Keep
la Bounds.
City Auditor Evans has Just completed
his report for the first six months of the
fiscal year ending October 15, which shows
the balances In the funds appropriated for
tho maintenance of the several city de
partments for the twelve months. With
the exception o( the streets and alley de
partment, the balances are sufficient to
carry them through to the end of the lineal
year, provided ordinary economy Is exer
cised. - For the police department $14,600 was
appropriated for the year, and of this
amount 17,445.17 has been expended in tho
first six months, leaving $7,064.88 to keep
the department going for the remainder
of the twelve months. Thla, It Is said,
will suffice, unless something unforeseen
happens, when the contingent fund could
probably be drawn upon. The fire depart
ment appropriation la in about the same
condition as that of the police department.
For lis maintenance $17,000 was appro
priated, and of this amount $8,944.67 has
been expended during the first six months,
leaving $8,055.41 to carry the department
through for the balance of the fiscal year.
The fire and police telegraph department j
has expended $1,411.11 of Its $2,000 appro
priation, leaving but $588.89 to maintain It
during the next six months. This, It Is
said, will be sufficient, as there Is no need
of the purchase of any more new material
until next year. The city engineer's de
partment has a balance in Its favor for
the next six months. Of the $4,000 ap
propriated for this department only $1,984.22
has been expended, leaving $2,015.76 for the
balance of the fiscal year.
The' streets and alleys department Is In a
bankrupt condition, and this condition ia
made evident by the filthy state of the
streets. The street sweeper, after being
provided with a new broom, made a tour
of the downtown streets for two nights,
and was then again relegated to the Junk
pile. Part of the refuse swept Into - the
gutters by the machine was hauled away,
but the greater part of It was permitted
to stand until It was scattered over the
streets again. With the ratn the streets
have now - become veritable seas of mud
and slime, In places several Inches deep,
and no attempt has been made by the
street commissioner, owing to ths lack of
funds, to even have the crossings cleaned.
The superficial sweeping given the street
Is now said to have been simply a waste
of money. For the streets and alley de
partment $8,000 was appropriated, and this
entire amount, with the exception of $737.49,
was expended within the first six months,
according to Auditor Evans' report. For
the remainder of the fiscal year the street
will have to go dirty.
The contingent fund 1 In good shape.
Of the $5,440 appropriated only $1,407.44
has been expended, leaving a balance of
$3,031.66 to help the city out in case of
Davis sell glass.

The accident to Lamp Trimmer Adams,
who dropped nearly ISO feet when the cable
of the elevator on the electrio light tower
at Eighth street and Broadway broke, and
escaped death or serious fnjury, ha given
fresh Impetus to the agitation to have
the light towers dispensed with. Through
out the olty the consensus of opinion is
that the towers should be taken down and
the lights distributed to the best advan
tage. It is a well known fact that the light
towers are a product of bygone days and
In every town which they once furnished
light have been dlsoarded and replaced
by the aro lamp at street Intersections.
They have always been regarded as a con
stant source of danger and the fall of the
one at Eighth street and Broadway some
few years ago, show that they are apt to
collapse at any moment and without warn
ing. The tower at Fourth street and Broad
way, especially ha always been regarded
as dangerous as in the event of It falling
it could ' not fall to cause much damage
and possible loss of life, owing to its pe
culiar location. The same is true of the
tower at Broadway and Fifth street. From
the talk at the city hall yesterday it Is ex
pected that the matter of taking down
the towers and distributing their light
will come before the council Monday night.
City Electrician Bradley In discussing the
question yesterday said: "If the aldermen
ask my advice I shall certainly recommend
that the towers be abolished. They are
out of date and no matter how well they
are looked after they cannot but be sources
of danger to the public. Constant exami
nation of the guy ropes certainly minimises
this danger as far as possible, but one of
these guy ropes Is apt to give way at any
moment and without any warning and then
the stability of the tower Is endangered.
In the case of the Eighth street tower
It was not a guy rope that broke, the main
column of the tower simply snapped oS
about twelve feet from the ground and
the 150 feet of iron work toppled over.
I believe better lighting results can be
obtained by taking ths lamps now on the
towers and distributing them as ths other
street lights are. The city owns two or
three light towers and In case they should
collapse would be responsible for any dam
age they might cause to property or life.
I say, take down the towers as soon a
Aldermen McDonald and Lovett are. la
favor of taking down the tower and several
others have since ths accident to Adams
stated that they would not oppose dispens
ing with the towers If It can be shown
that just as good lighting results could
be obtained by the distribution of 4he

Ths firs department was called yesterday
morning to the residence of Henry Cof
feen at 109 Bcott street. The family was
away sad ths alarm was turned In by
neighbors, who noticed the smoke pouring
from the windows. The blaze was found
to have started In a closet off a bedroom
In which was stowed a quantity of cloth
ing, bedding, books and other articles, all
of which were destroyed. As there had
been no fire In the house for several days,
the origin of the blaie la a mystery. Tho
firemen had to break open the doors to ef
fect an entrance. The building ia owned
by C. A. Coke and the damage to it is esti
mated at about $100, being covered by In
surance. Mr. Coffeen's loss. It la said, ia
also covered by insurance.
Board Decide on Pnrehaae of I.I d Rett
Properly Provided Title la
The establishment of a city isolation hos
pital for female patients is now assured
the Board of County Supervisors having
yeaterday approved of the action of thn
city Board of Health In deciding to pur-
cnaae the Lldgett property for Burn a
purpose. This property was offered to
the city for $1,800 and the supervisors
yeaterday authorized the auditor to draw
a warrant for the purchase price whenever
the county attorney haa decided that, the
title to It Is all right. The cost of the
property will be taxed back on the city.
The board has also decided that It would
take no chances In regard to the care of
smallpox cases throughout the county and
In Instructing the auditor to advertise for
bids from physicians for the pauper practice
ordered that bids be also asked for the
treatment of smallpox rases. Heretofore the
board, having no regular contracts for the
care of such cases, has been compelled
to pay what It considered exorbitant claims
from the physicians or else stand suit in
the courts.
For the last two or three years the con
tract for the building of the county
-bridges has been awarded to C. E. H. Camp
bell of this city without the board ob
taining bids from other contractors. This
led to considerable criticism and yesterday
the auditor waa instmcted to advertise
for bids for such work for the year com
mencing April 6, 1903, when Campbell's
present contract expires. Bids will be re
ceived only from contractors of the state
and no outsiders need apply.
A communication from the city council
directing Supervisor Baker to expend $200
of the road fund collected within the city
limit on the Improvement of Gleaaon ave
nue, was referred to Colonel Baker. The
law provides that the expenditure of the
portion of the county road fund levied
within the municipal limits shall be di
rected by the city council.
Body Awaits Identification.
The body of a 16-year-old boy who died
in St. Bernard's hospital October 27 la
till awaiting Identification at Lunkley'
undertaking rooms. The boy, whose name
I thought to be either Whitney or Wllllts

of October 17 from a grading camp near
Shelby, on the Great Western, suffering
from acute bronchitis and asthma and was
in a aeml-consclou condition. He died a
few hour after being sdmltted to the hos
pital without regaining consciousness. He
had only been at ths camp few days and
nothing was known about him there, al
though It was thought that he had run
sway from his home In Kansas City. The
boy Is described as having been about 16
year of age, of light complexion, five feet
three Inches In height and weighing 125
pounds. His eyes were light blue or hazel
and his feet were remarkably small for
his weight and his other proportions, fer
he wore a No. 6 shoe.

DES MOINES, Nov. 14. (Special.) The
theft of a $250 sealskin woman's coat was
accomplished at noon today by a stranger
in a bold manner, but with cleverness
The stranger, who was well dressed, went
to a department store and looked over the
cloaks. He picked out one worth $250 and
said he thought his wife would like It, that
she was at a hotel and unable to come to
the store, that he would like to take the
cloak to the hotel and have It tried on
and would like It if the clerk could be sent
along to do the fitting. The program was
carried out. but once at) the hotel the
stranger slipped away from the clerk with
the sealskin on his arm and walked out
through the office and Into the street. It
was all done before the clerk could realize
how the game was being played and the
stranger was out of sight In a minute, for
It waa raining and he turned down an al
ley. The man had no room at the hotel,
but had been there previously Bnd said he
would take a room and that his wife would
come back with him. A description ef the
man was given, but he Is not. known here.
Continuing; the I.evleh Trial.
The trial of Harry Levlch continues in
the district court and Is the center of at
traction In the city. The state's witnesses
today took up the circumstances which sur
rounded the murder and testified to various
circumstances leaving an Indication that
Levlch had planned the murder. Wit
nesses testified that Levioh made sundry
threats against Isaac Flnkelsteln, that on
the night in question he borrowed a re
volver at a saloon, that he was seen near
where the murder was committed, that be
was seen with a negro, etc. There was a
great crowd at the hearing and as the
courtroom Is ln an old business block now
used for a temporary courthouse, the Judgo
moved to one of the lower rooms for
safety, stating that be feared, the walls of
the building would give way under the
strain. This announcement came near nre-
clpitating a panic as the crowd started
to leave the room.
Stone Will Answer for Blgsny.
It is expected that Walter E. Stone of
Cleveland, O., will be brought back to Des
Moines next week to answer to accusations
made against him by Miss Alice Donahue,
who lived with him several months and
claims he Imposed a mock; marriage upon
her. He has been arrested in Detroit,
where he bad gone after marrying a
woman in Canada. The woman he married
there was a Miss Van Wagner and she at
first announced her Intention of accom
panying Stone to De Moines to face the
other woman, but It is learned she will
not come. It Is a question puzzling to the
officials to know what to do with the case,
as they feel that they may not be able to
make any charge against Stone, in court.
The only way he can, be prosecuted will be
to accuse him of bigamy on the claim that
his marriage- in Des Moines wss ln fact a

Bequests of Mrs.' Callanaa.
The report on the estate of Mrs. Martha
C. Callanan has been submitted by the ex

C. A. Dudley. As has been previously stated
Mrs. Callanan's bequests were In excess of
what Is contemplated lh the law, which
stipulate that a husband or wife cannot
leave by will more than one-fourth of his
or her property to corporations during the
lifetime of a spouse. Mrs. Callanan's largest
bequests were $20,000 to the Tuskeges In
stitute and $10,000 to the Home for the
Aged, Des Moines. After all debts were
paid It was found that the balance for dis
tribution was $40,448. The tax ferrets re
duced the sum total materially. The un
divided bequests were very much cut also
by the collateral. The Individual bequests
of $1,000 each to Mrs. C. P. Holmes and to

quences In tranamlttlng a bogus message
Is a question Involved In a case which Is
to be tried before Judge Shlraa at Fort
