EXCHANGES CASH FOR HAT AND REVOLVER

Charles W. Letchford was held up and
robbed In his butcher shop at 607 South ;
Main street, by a lone highwayman shortly
after 8 o'clock last evening. The thief es
caped with between 850 and $60, but left
his hat and revolver. The revolver was
secured by Letchford after a struggle with
the thug and with It Letchford fired three
shots at his assailant. He believes the
second shot took effect. Tho fellow after
the second shot Implored Letchford not to
shoot again, as he was mortally wounded.
Letchford, thinking he had the fellow safe,
left his shop to get assistance. When he
returned he discovered the fellow had
made his escape with the money by break
ing out a rear window.
Letchford had counted up his cash for
the day, placing ISO In silver In a sack, and
was sitting In the middle room of the
shop with the sack of money on the bench
beside him when a man with a handker
chief over his faco entered the front door.
Letchford thlnkirg he was some friend who
was attending a masquerade dance in the
neighborhood ope.ied the glass door Into
the middle room, calling out to the fel
low: "Hello, there." Letchford was soon
made awsre that his visitor was no friend,
as 'he fellow walked straight Into the
room and thrusting a revolver In Letch
ford's face, ordered him to hold up his
hands, at the same time telling him he
wanted his money and wanted it quick.
Letchford protested and the fellow again
ordered him to hold up his hands.
"I don't want to kill you, but If you don't
hand over your cash without more ado
I will have to."
When the fellow said this Letchford
reached over and handed the man the sack
of silver and a 85 bill from his pocket.
Fight for Revolver.
The visitor then ordered Letchford to
go Into the rear room and He down, other
wise he would kill him. Letchford again
proteated, but when ho felt the cold muz
zle of the gun against his face he de
cided discretion was the better part of
valor, and went into the rear room. The
fellow. Instead of leaving, followed Letch
f:,rd Into the room, 'but as he paesod
through the door, Letchford seized the re
volver and succeeded In wrenching It
from the grasp of the thug. As quickly
as he could Letchford fired three shots
and then the revolver failed to work. At
the second shot the fellow staggered and
fell over the sausage bench, calling out:
"For Ood'.j sake, don't shoot any more.
You've killed me, anyhow."
Letchford, thinking the fellow was mor
tally wounded and - believing he had him
safo want to tho front of Ms shop to get
assistance. It was two or three minutes
before anyone came and when Letchford re
turned to the back room the man was not
to be found. The window into the alley
was found forced upen, showing how he
had managed to get away. Blood on tho
floor and the window casing led Letchford
to the belief that he had wounded his
The police think It possible that Che

tion that Letchford would cease shooting
and that he would then get a chance to
close In and regain possession of his gun.
The thief, when he fell over on the
sausage bench, dropped his hat, a soft black
fedora. This and the gun are the only
clues the police have to work upon.
Letchford described the fellow as being
slim and tall and dressed In a dark suit.

MAYOR ANSWERS MINISTER
Attends Meeting of Ministerial Asso
ciation and Takes a.
Mayor Morgan attended the meeting yes
terday morning of the Ministerial associa
tion at the First Baptist church and after
listening to an arraignment of the city ad
ministration by Rev. A. E. Buriff, paator
of Trinity Methodist church, seized the op- ,
portunlty to reply to the reverend gentle
man's criticism. Rev. Buriff read a paper
entitled, "Responsibility for Local Law
lessness," and quoted copiously from data
which he had secured during a recent In
vestigation of the methods pursued by the
city authorities In dealing with saloons,
the social evil and other moral problems.
In opening Rev. Buriff said that the re
sponsibility for local lawlessness rested
primarily In public sentiment and those
who had Influence in moulding public opin
ion, namely, the ministers of the different
churches and the editors of the dally news
papers. At the same time, he asserted, the
city authorities elected by the people were
the ones legally responsible for the condi
tions of which he complained. The Sun
day theater and the open saloon, he said,
were a desecration f the Sabbath and both
were permitted in violation of the law.
Hia remarks concerning the Ones Im
posed monthly by the city on fallen women
were particularly cauatlc and he Insisted
that the sooner the city washed Its hands
of this nefarious business the better. Rev.
Burlff's remarks incited considerable dis
cussion among the ministers present, who,
while taking exception to some of them,
endorsed them aa a whole.
At the conclusion of the discussion Mayor
Morgan addressed the meeting in answer
to the general criticism on the city ad
ministration. He explained that there were
conditions with which the ministers were
probably not conversant. One of these con
ditions, he explained, was that of Insuffi
cient revenue derived from the 10-mlll
levy, all that ia allowed by law. with
which to carry on the affairs of the city
and provide for the fir and police depart
ments. The revenue derived from the sa
loon licenses and Ones in police court wsa
absolutely necessary in order to maintain
the several city departments.

Morgan, City Solicitor Pnyder and Alder
men McDonald and Casper, was appointed
to Investigate the alleged abandonment of
Council Bluffs by the Union Pacific railroad
as Its terminal. This committee Is to re
port at the next meeting and on its re
port will depend whether the city will take
the matter Into court. Congressman Wal
ter I. Smith, whose assistance had been
asked by the city council In this matter,

States circuit court Issued a writ of man
damus compelling the railroad company to
operate Its road to and from Council Bluffs
as one continuous line and that this Judg
ment was affirmed by the supreme court.
If the action of tho Union Pacific com
plained of Is a violation of the railroad's
duties under the Judgment, Congressman
Smith suggested that on application to
the circuit court of the United States It
would enforce the Judgment.

Van Brunt of the executive committee, ad
dressed a communication to the city coun
cil urging that steps be taken at once to
have the Union Pacific operate Its line
