Report Thomron-Houitou Company Absorbs
Council Bluffs Concern.
LOCAL MANAGER IS NON-COMMITTAL
Business Men Claim to Have Infor
mation Prom the East That the
Deal is Practically Con-rinded.
When asked yesterday if there was any
foundation for the report that the new
Thomson-Houston company of Omaha bad
acquired control of the Citizens' Oas and
Electric company of this city W. II. Fritch
man, manager of the Council Bluffs com
pany, declined to either deny or affirm the
report. He stated, however, that negotia
tions for the sale of the local plant had
been opened and were pending. "The deal,"
he said, "as far as I have been Informed
has not yet been closed. Beyond this I
have nothing to say at this time."
While the report here Is to the effect that
the Council Bluffs plant has passed Into the
possession of the Thomson-Houston com
pany of Omaha, It Is said that the real
parties back of the deal are the people rep
resenting the Elkins-Wldener syndicate of
New Tork City, the financial backers of the
reorganization of the Omaha aV Council
Bluffs street electric railway systems.
Council Bluffs business men who have
been figuring on organising a local gat
and electric light company with a view to
securing If possible the ci.ty lighting con
tract at the expiration, two and a halt
years hence, of the city's contract with the
Citizens' Gas and Electric company, say
that information received by them from
the east leaves no doubt In their minds
that the control of the Council Bluffs plant
has passed to the Thomson-Houston com
pany of Omaha. It Is understood that
changes in the local management will result
from the absorption of the local concern
by the Omaha company. As to this Man
ager Prltchman said he had no advice.
President Nash of the New Omaha Thomson-Houston
company said last night:
"Negotiations are on and perhaps I can
give some definite statement tomorrow. At
present all I would care to say Is that
probably the deal will go through. I do
not even know that If It does the company
across the river will become part of our
company, though the parties negotiating
are Interested with us here. If the pur
chase Is mad the equipment In Council
Bluffs will be put In Improved condition
at a cost of probably $60,000, and the gas
plant there will be maintained. So tar as I
know, the present deal has no connection
with the street car merger."

LOZIER ANDM00RE GUILTY
Jury Says They Were Parties to Bin"
Racine Swindle at Webb
City, . Ho.
"Guilty as charged In the . Indictment"
was the verdict returned yesterday after
noon by the district court Jury In the case
of the Stat of Iowa against Leon Loiler
and Ed Moore, charged with conspiring to
defraud Charles Gregory and William
Barker out of nearly $10,000 In connection
with an alleged fake foot race In Webb
City. Mo., in January, 1902. This verdict
was reached after the Jury had been out
less than an hour.
Judge Thornell in his Instructions to the
Jury said that the question of whether
Gregory and Barker went to Webb City for
the express purpose of conspiring to de
fraud someone else did not enter into the
case and afforded no excuse for the defend
ants defrauding Gregory and Barker.
On court reconvening yesterday morning
Attorney Sallinger concluded his arguments
for the defense and Attorney Burke, who
assisted the county attorney In the prose
cution, closed for the state. A recess was
then taken to 1:30 p. m., when Judge Thor
nell Instructed the Jury, which retired
shortly after I o'clock. At I o'clock the
Jury sent word that It waa ready to report.
The court room was crowded with an Inter
ested and expectant throng. The verdict
was evidently a surprise to the defendants
and many of their friend who had looked
tor an acquittal.
Judge Thornell announced that he would
pass sentence Friday ' morning. In the
meantime Lozler and Moore are at liberty
on the $3,000 bonds which they each fur
nished. They have three days In which to
file a motion for a new trial. In the event
of a new trial being denied the case will be
taken to the supreme court.
The case has attracted more than usual
attention owing to the prominence given
throughout the country of the alleged fake
races conducted by the Webb City Athletic
club and the court room was crowded dally
during the trial. Since Saturday afternoon
the Jury was constantly In charge of a
bailiff. Judge Thornell having been In
formed that attempts to tamper with It
had been made by friends of the accused.
The extreme penalty for the crime of
which Lozler and Moore now stand con
victed Is three years In the penitentiary.
DOUBLES ITS CAPITAL STOCK
Omaha. Council Bluffs Railway nnd
Bridge Company Files Amended
Ths certificate of amendments to the
articles of incorporation of the Omaha A
Council Bluffs Railway and Bridge company
were filed in the office of the county re
corder yesterday by Charles T. Stewart,
secretary of the company. The amend
ments were adopted at a meeting of ths
stockholders on March 2.
The effect of one of the amendments Is
to raise the cspital stock of the company
from $1,600,000 to $3,000,000, divided into
0,(M shsres of which 16,000 are preferred
and 16,000 common stock. The preferred
stock will. It the earnings warrant it, draw
not to exceed 4 per cent. The dividend on
the common stock will depend on what Is
left over after the dividend on the pre
ferred stock Is paid.
Another amendment provides that the
company shsll operate railways In Doug
las county, Nsbrsska and Pottawattamie
and Cass counties, Iowa, with termini in
Omaha, Council Bluffs and Orlswold. Cass
county, Iowa. Vnder the original articles
of Incorporation the termini of the com
pany were In Omaha and Council Bluffs.
This Is taken to Indicate that at some
future time the company proposes to con
struct so electric line tram Council Bluffs
through Pottawattamie county to Grlswold
In Cass county. In speaking of this latter
feature yesterday, an officer of tha core
pany said that as tar aa he knew there
wss no intention at present to construct
any suburban lines In Iowa and that ths
company would trU complete lis rural ex
tensions In Douglas county, Nebraska, be
MUCH TALK OVER TELEPHONES
City Connrll Pnta In nn Rvenlnf, bnt
Takes 'o Action on Fran
chises. The city council met as a committee of
the whole yesterday afternoon snd after
devoting nearly four hours to the discus
stun of Independent telephone systems ad
journed without taking any action on the
two ordinances Introduced Monday night,
beyond adopting a resolution favoring the
connecting of Council Bluffs with the in
dependent telephone companies In this sec
tion of the state.
Representatives of the two local Inde
pendent companies now asking franchises
and of the Bell company were present.
The committee took up first the propo
sition of the Western Iowa Independent
Telephone, Telegraph & Terminal com
pany, the company headed by Dr. D. Mac
rae, Jr., and his associates. The discus
sion on this occupied so much of the ses
sion that the committee had to leave the
consideration of the proposition of the
Council Bluffs Independent Telephone com
pany, the company organized a year ago by
H. H. Van Brunt, Emmet Tinley and others,
to another day.
' During the discussion, It was announced
that the tolls of the Macrae company
would be as follows: For five miles and
under twenty miles. 20 cents; for five miles
and under, 15 cents; for twenty miles and
over, 25 cents. The tolls, it was explained,
are regulated by tho association of inde
Alderman Caaper wanted a clause In
serted In the ordinance providing for the
payment to the city by the company of 3
per cent of Its gross earnings, but he
failed to secure a second.
Several of the aldermen declared them
selves as opposed to the establishment of
two telephone exchanges in tbe city and
this was taken to Indicate that they did
not favor the proposition of Van Brunt's
company while they did that of Its rival,
the company formed by Dr. Macrae, which
will only establish toll stations and a cen
Alderman Huber was In favor of the
council taking a Junketing trip to Investi
gate conditions In towns where two op
posing telephone companies were operating,
providing the companies now seeking
franchises would bear the expense. Both
companies agreed to this and Attorney
Tinley for his company even went so far
as to offer to bear the entire expense. A
representative of the Nebraska Telephone
company also offered on the part of tho
company to bear Us share of the expense.
The suggestion was, however, voter1, down.
In answer to the statement that the in
dependent companies were unable to es
tablish connections with the Bell company,
a representative of the Nebraska Telephone
company stated that the fault lay with the
Independent companies. The Bell com
pany, he stated, was willing to accord
connections provided Bell 'phones would
be used. The 'phones he said would be
leased at a mere nominal rental to the
companlea and would be Installed free of
expense to the patrons.
The discussion throughout the entire
meeting was more or less Informal with
the result that the aldermen practically
arrived at no decision.

phine. The first testimony was that of Dr.

of Corcoran. He stated there waa a trace
of morphine in the stomach he examined.
On cross-examination he admitted, how

SKIM ON FIRE
No disease causes so much bodily discomfort, or itches, burns and stinps
like Kezctua. Beginning often with a slight redness of the skin it gradually
spreads, followed hy pustules or blisters from which a gumtuy, sticky fluid
