The attention of th police was called
yesterday to pitiable case of destitution
at 495 Franklin avenoe, where a woman
with four, small children were found to be
almost starving. The place, a mere shack,
was without furniture and the occupants
bad only a few old sacks and rags to sleep
on. They were absolutely without any
means of heating; the one room and there
vii not even a crust of bread In the place.
The woman and the children were left at
the shack Wednesday night by three men,
who drove off in a covered wagon and have
not been seen since. When an ofOcer called
at the place last evening the woman re
fused point blank to give any Information
to where she and the children came
from or who the men were who brought her
here. Temporary relief was afforded the
woman and children and the police will
make a further Investigation of tha case

TROUBLE OVER EXPRESSMEN

The six expressmen who were arrested
last Wednesday at the instance of McKJn
ley Lower, proprietors of the barber shop'
at the corner of Main atreet and Broadway,
ana cnargea witn maintaining a nuisance
I bt stannic tneir wacona ana teams at
that corner, will have a hearing In police
The question of selecting a suitable place
where tha expressmen, who pay the city a
license for carrying on their business, may
stand Is to be taken up at a meeting this
. evening of the committee of the whole city
council. It Is possible that the cases In
police court will be continued, awaiting
the result of the meeting of the aldermen.
Mayor Morgan, In discussing the matter
yesterday, stated the solution of the prob
lem was a most difficult one. He believed
that while the city demanded tha express
men should pay a license, It ought in re
turn to provide some place whera they
could stand their teams and wagons, but
buslneks men generally objected to having
the 'wagons stand in front of their places.
For years the expressmen have kept their
wagons on North Main atreet, thla being
tha most central location, but occupants of
the abutting property have made frequent
complaints and now insist that the city offl-
..clals have them removed elsewhere. The
ordinance governing the 'matter provides
, that no expressman can stand hie wagon
and team In front of any place" of business

(From a Staff Correspondent.) .
DE3 MOINES, Dec' . (Special.) The
renaming of the guard regiment, of Iowa,
as made recently by tbe adjutant general
by order of the governor, ha. proved the
mo.t popular thing for the betterment of
the militia service devised In recent years.
The four regiments. Instead of being tho
Forty-ninth to Fifty-second Inclusive, are
now the Fifty-third to Fifty-sixth Inclu
sive. Originally the guard regiments were
First to Fourth, but after the reorganisa
tion, because of the service in tbe Cuban
war, the regiments were given the same
numbering as the regiment. In the volunteer
service, tbe plea for thl. being that many
of the men who were In the United States
volunteer service would stay with the regi
ments In the guard. This proved to be the
most unfortunate thing that could have
been done, for those companies In which
the veteran volunteer, dominated proved to
be most troublesome, as all the men who
had seen service wanted pommlsstons and
crowded out the younger and newer mem
bers. The abandonment of the numbering
which has been used now about three years
has been well received. Adjutant General
Byers has received letter, of congratula
tion from many of the officer, of the guard,
and not one complaint, either by letter or
orally. Under the new arrangement there
will be no danger of confusion of the pres
ent guard companies with the Iowa volun
teer companie. and regiments. Thl. pleases
the volunteers who have not gone into the
guard and the guardsmen who were not
in the volunteer service. At tbe time of
renaming the regiment, some of tbe com
panie were moved from on regiment to
another, so aa to better group the com
panie in regiments on sectional lines, and
these changes have caused - no protest,
though an effort to make some changes
of this character last year raised a storm.
General Byers 1. now confident the Iowa
National guard will gain rapidly in strength
and Importance and that It will be com
paratively easy to maintain the companies
of tbe four regiments. There are two va
cancies now one in the . Flfty-tblrd and
one in the Fifty-fifth and these will be
filled some time during the winter. Gen
eral Byers goes to Washington after the
holidays and will work with the Iowa dele,
gatlon to secure the passage of the Dick
military bilft which would enable tbe
guardsmen to go Into camp with the regu
lars each year and effect a closer alliance
between the guard and the United State,
Electloa la a Regrlmeat.
Th election for a lieutenant colonel In
the Fifty-fourth regiment, which I. In the
southeastern part of the state, will be held
on Monday. Thl will be the second elec
tion, the first resulting in such a division
of tha vote that no candidate had a ma
jority. The ranking major of th regiment,
John A. Dunlap of Keokuk, received 101
votes, the second In rank. Major Frank W.
Bishop of Muscatine, received 189 and the
Junior msjor,- E. E. Lambert of Newton,
received 129. Since then Major Duulap has
withdrawn and sent a circular letter to hi
friend asking them to support Bishop for
the place and Bishop will be elected. He
will take the place of Lieutenant Colonel
H. C. Haynes, formerly of Centervllle, who
has left the state. This conteet has been
the most spirited of any contest In recent
Tyler Wants New Trial.
Chester Tyler, colored, ha asked for a
new trial . from the supreme court. He
wa convicted of murder in Jasper county
and la serving- a life sentence. He was
convicted of the murder of Dr. B. M. Failor
of Newton, in September, 1901, tbe doctor,
who wa an old resident and quite wealthy,
being found dead near the walk from his
house to bis office. The evident purpose
of the murder was robbery. Tyler had
been seen In the city that day, but bad
disappeared. Later he wa arrested and
held in Ottumwa for awhile and released
because there waa no evidence against him.
He traveled about the country and came
to De Moines. A young woman who was
well acquainted with Tyler later hinted that
he knew where Dr. Pallor's watch could
be found and detective made" a search and
found the watch In the possession of one
who had received It from Tyler. On thl
simple beginning the evidence waa sufficient
to convict. He ask a aew trial, alleging
many mistakes In the trial of the case and
especially Insisting that it wa wrong to
allow the foreman of the Jury to sleep dur
ing the trial at th home of a nephew ot
th murdered man. '
I'alveralty Troablea Settled.
The recent disgraceful conduct of some
ot tbe students of the Iowa State university
at Iowa City has now been entirely dis
posed of so far aa It relate to the classes
as a wnoie. President MacLean of the
university was In the city last, night con
sulting with state officers and other. He
spok very hopefully of the outlook. The
student of one claaa had nriLMir.il.
broken up a banquet given at a leading
notei ny another class and caused great
damage to furniture and window.. The
faculty' demanded that membara of th.
class pay the damages and settle up the
matter, president MacLean state, that he
doe. not know whether th damage, have
been paid, but the class has agreed to pay
the damage, and to make all matters
right. "The affair waa very unfortunate
for all of us." said President MacLean,
"and It was very bad, but it was also
greatly exaggerated In tbe papers. Hav
ing dealt with the class as a whole, we
are now ready to deal with Individuals and
shall do so as faat as we can discover
them. We will not tolerate rowdyism at
the university and shall certainly wipe out
the disgrace brought upon It and the class
by thla conduct."
Iowa School Fla-ares.
According to the return, from county
superintendents made to the state auperia
tendent'of education, there ar not as
many school children ia Iowa as formerly.
The enumerators found only 721.810 in 1902.
which la 7,651 less than were enumerated
In the previous year. Thla Is regarded as
merely the result of Inefficient enumera
tion of the children of (be state. At the
same time the average school attendance
Increased somewhat above ' that ' ot la.t
year and the enrollment In school wa
substantially th came. The pay of male
teacher averaged higher than ever before,
but there were not so many of them In
school or attending the normal Institute
The pay of female teacher, averaged a
few cent less than last yesr and lower
than recorded for many years. There are
not a many teacher attending normal
school a In other year. There haa been

MARSHAL COULTER MAY LIVE

Low Ra Hope for His
FARMINGTON, la.. Dec. 21. (Special.)
It Is now believed that Marshal Robert
Coulter, one of the men shot by George
Stlllwell Friday afternoon, will live, al
though hi condition Is still critical. There
1 no hope. It I stated, for Justice of the
Pesce E. A. Muagrave. Stlllwell'. other
victim, who 1 very weak. From the testi
mony given at the coroner's Inquest over
the remains of gtlllwell, it la believed that
the bullet which killed 'Stlllwell was fired
by Marshal Coulter In the first shooting
affray on Main street. Coulter says during
the shooting Stlllwell Stepped on the side
walk and fell toward him as he fired hi
last shot. The fatal bullet struck Stlllwell
In the right aide of the neck, high up and
ranged downward, coming out below the
left shoulder blade. '. Coulter'a testimony
Indicates that the bullet made this wound.
If this is so Stlllwell lived about two hours
and a half before he died, about the time
the posse found him In the timber. Another
theory advanced Is that Stlllwell either
accidentally or purposely fired the fatal
shot himself, as he saw the posse closing in
on him. One of the strangest verdicts In
the history of this county was the result of
the coroner's Inquest, vis.: "Death by hi
own hand or by parties unVnown while In
the act of restating an officer."
