WOODS JURY FAILS TO AGREE
Said to Have Stood 11 to 1 in Favor of
Conviction When One Jury
man Become 111.
Ben Woods, the alleged pickpocket
charged with robbing Neils Boysen ot Glen
wood at the Burlington local passenger
depot, will have to stand a second trial.
The Jury, after being out twenty-four
hours, failed to agree and was discharged
yesterday afternoon by Judge Green. It
is said that the Jury stood 10 to 2 for a
verdict of guilty all through Tuesday night
and that when discharged It stood 11 to 1
for conviction. James Smith of Garner
township, one of the Jurors, complained
ot being 111, and this being the case Judge
Green ordered the jury discharged. Woods
will not be tried again until the January
term of court. Woods' defense was that
he was Innocent ot picking the pocket of
Boysen, but that he had plucked a con
ductor's check from the hat of a passenger
with the object, of securing a free ride
serosa the river, and that when Boysen
shouted "Stop thief," he ran, believing
that ' Boysen was the man whom he had
deprived of his check. Wooda was ar
rested about a block from the depot after
a hot chase, In which a number ot civilians
took part, and the pocketbook taken from
Boysen was picked up In the street. It
was alleged that Wooda was a member ot
the gang of pickpockets which was working
Lake Manawa last summer.

Is going on in this county for the nomina

that we are to have "heap snow" in the
west this winter. The medicine man In

of weather prophecy and his word on such
matters is taken aa law. He has stated
that we will have the same amount ot snow
as we had rain In the summer, and It has
been figured out that In this portion of the
state of Iowa that would mean twenty
eight feet of snow on the level. Of course
the drifts would be much deeper. Appar
ently In this part of the state the weather
man has started In to fulfill the old medi
cine man's prediction.

SUPREME COURT GETS BUSY
Passes on Six Criminal and a Number of
Civil Games Before It,
CONFER REGARDING STATE'S CHARGES
City of Ottumwa Asks State to Help
It Out of Dilemma Arising;
from Conflicting; Court
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Dec. 17. (Special.) The
Iowa supreme court delivered Itself ot a
number of opinions this morning, but none
of them of great Importance. There' were
six criminal cases, hnlf ot them being re
versed and half affirmed, but in no one
was there any great principle Involved.
In the case of the State against "Tip"
Blaln, who was sentenced by Judge Prouty
to five years In the penitentiary for larceny
of a saddle, the court found no errors In
In two canes from Hancock county, H.
Williams and M. C. Conner had been sen
tenced to ten year ach for a holdup trick
on a train at Garner, when they got $110
from a man named Cummlngs. The court
refused to declare the sentence excessive.
C. C. Belrd, a Keokuk printer, was In
dicted for murder of Captain A. W. Dundy
of Nauvoo, 111., in a quarrel at midnight
in Keokuk during a street carnival. Dundy
was drunk and quarrelsome. Belrd was
convicted of manslaughter. The supreme
court found that the lower court had erred
In not allowing evidence as to the quarrel
some character of Dundy, as tending to
show that he was the aggressor In the
fight, and therefore that Belrd might have
acted in selt-dcfensc.
In the case against Marlon Trusty, con
victed .of rape in Winnebago county, the
court bad failed to Instruct as to Included
offenses, and this was declared to be a
In the case ot Charles Pasnau, from
Wapello county, the appellant had been
convicted of assault with Intent to commit
great bodily injury as one of a party ot
three or four who assaulted W. A. Huston.
He pleaded he was so drunk he could not
have known anything about what his pals
were doing, and could not have been a
party to a conspiracy. The court found
that the Jury had not been fully Instructed
as to the excuse of drunkenness In such
In a case from Wapello county. Patrick
Brady had been overseer of the poor for
many years, and after he was out of office
suit was commenced against him to re
cover for money which had been obtained
by fraud. He had drawn 87,953.41 from the
county to give to the poor and the county
obtained a Judgment for $2,350 which lt
was shown went to Brady Instead of to the
poor. Suit was brought to subject certain
property to the Judgment, and the claim
was made that lt was a homestead. The
courts have found otherwise and tho claim
will have to be paid.
Conference of Superintendent.
The conference of the executive heads ot
the state Institution with the Board ot
Control today was well attended, all being
present except . Warden Hones. The paper
which attracted greatest attention was one
by Chairman Cownle of the board on the
question of Insurance of state property.
He contended that the policy pursued by
the legislature of not insuring is a wise
one; that lt would cost the state more than
It Is worth to Insure, and that Inasmuch
as the people of the state are as able as
the Insurance companies to carry the burden
of risk, they should do so. He would
favor an Inspector of the state property,
as there is now under the board property
valued at about $8,000,000, and he would
favor a sinking fund, from which Imme
diate building could be done. In a paper
by Superintendent Rothert of the deaf
school he advocated the education of the
defectives of the state aa one of the best
means of preventing criminality. Superin
tendent Miles advocated the establishment
of Juvenile courts for certain classes ot
offenders In the state. Seymour Nelson
of Chicago read a paper on landscape
gardening for state institutions. Some
consideration was given at the conference
to increasing the number ot Inebriate hos
pltsls, but no conclusion was finally
Deserter Brought In.
John Huddleston, a deserter from the
army, was brought to Des Moines from
Ottumwa today. He Is a young man whose
parents are poor and he Is unlettered.
He deserted at Fort Casey In October from
the Seventy-first coast artillery and re
turned to Ottumwa. his home, and as soon
aa he learned he wa wanted gave himself
up, apparently hardly realirlng his offense.
Letters from prominent residents ot Ot
tumwa were sent to the army officers to
Induce them to be as lenient as possible
with the young man.
Kew Iowa Savin; Bank.
A new savings bank bap been organized
and today the articles of Incorporation of
the Unlonville Savings bank were filed

Ottumwa Wants Help.

Any of the articles make

The Iowa supreme court declared the wa
terworks proposition legal and right, while
a federal court haa held It all wrong.
There has been a rumor that the state,
by and through the attorney general, would
Intervene In the case because of the great
Importance of the case as affecting all
the statutes of Iowa, and now the city
authorities want to know Just what the
attorney general Is willing to do or can
do to help them.
Headquarter for the Northwestern.
James C. Davis, the new besd of the
legal department for the Chicago & North
western railroad for Iowa, Is In the city
arranging to move the headquarters of
the legal department from Cedar Rapids
the first of the year. He rented a suite
of offices today and he will move his family
from Keokuk soon. The assistants have
not a yet been announced.
It Is learned that the Burlington rail
road Is arranging to establish a passen
ger division here and to have much of the I
passenger business In Iowa done from this
point. This would be largely on the lines
running Into the southern part of the
state and the unimportant part of the
system In Iowa.
Telephone Strike Settled.
The long pending telephone strike af
fecting the Iowa Telephone company le
practically ended. A conference was held
here today between strikers and the man
agers and a committee appointed to try
to effect a settlement, and while the defin
ite terms were not agreed upon it was
stated today that progress had been made
and only a few matters of detail were to
be arranged. The telephone employes will
receive an Increase of wages and there
will be general compliance with their
wishes, but non-union employes will not bo
discharged at once.
