at. a figure sufficient to reduce the actual

CONCLUDE FORNEY INQUEST
Jury Recommends That Suspect
Rogers Be Held for Farther
The coroner's Inquest over Albert H.
Forney, who waa shot and killed in his
salcon on West Broadway Friday night,
was completed yesterday morning and the
Jury brought In a verdict to the. effect that
Forney came to his death from gunshot
wounds Inflicted by a person or persons
unknown to the Jury. To the verdict was
attached a rider recommending that W. C.
Rogers, alias Frank Parsons, the suspect
under arrest, be held for further investl- J
gatlon In connection with the crime.
Two new witnesses were Introduced at
the inquest yesterday by the' authorities for
the purpose of further establishing Rogers'
alleged connection with the shooting of
Forney. Mrs. Addle Powers, living at 1003
Brcadwav, testified that she went to the
saloon at about 10:30 the night of the mur- ,
der and noticed two msn peering nio inn
front window. Che particularly Identified j
Rogers as one of the men and said that
as she was about to enter the door of the
salcon, the man who resembled Rogers
stepped back, thus enabling her to secure .
a good look at him.
Richard Organ, son . of Attorney J. P.
Organ, testified that on last Friday after-
noon as he and a companion were passing 1
the Northwestern depot on Broadway, he
noticed three men sitting on the chsln
fence lust east of the depot platform. He
I was positive that Rogers was one ot tho
j three men. Organ's testimony was In con
traventlon of Rogers' assertion that he did
I not arrive in Council Bluffs until Satur
day morning, the morning following the
murder of Forne;-.
The third and last witness yesterday was
Will Chownlng, a cook employed In the
restaurant a few doors east or Forney a
saloon. He said that he beard tbe three
shots and ran to the rear door ot tha res
taurant and looked out Into the alleyway
but did not see any one run from the
saloon. He ran down the alley to the sa
loon and looked In threugh the rear 'Win
dow, but could not sea any one ' in the
. It had been expected that Rogers would
have been arraigned yesterday afternoon
following tha Inquest, but Assistant County
Attorney Hess, who baa tbe case In charge,
stated that he did not expect to arraign
him before Friday.
PROTEST FROM CLERK REED
Asks Board to Rescind Reaolatloa,
bat the Sapervlsprs
Freeman Reed, clerk of the district court,
filed with the Board ot County Supervisors
yesterday a protest against the resolution
adopted by it Tuesday relative to tbe print.
Ing of tbe bar dockets, coupled with the re
ouest that the resolution be rescinded. The
beard declined, however, to take It back.
The protest was as follows:
I wish to protest against the feoljtlon
adontt-d by yojr honorable body,1 on April
7. 1C"3. concerning the printing uf the bur
docket, for the Avoca court, and this fur
the following reasons:
1. The attorney general of Iowa haa given
an opinion that It Is the duty of the clvrk
to furnish the bar docket In the ful'swtng
lansuaaa; "The clerk la directed to Iixr-
nlsh printed calendar.". Vnless some statute
direct." how these calendars are to be pro
cured b the clerk. cr who in to print the
BHine, he h'l an Hhf .i.ute illfcrellnn In the
matter which cannot I p controlled by any
one. I tlnl nothing In the statute which
authorizes the board ol supervisors by any
resiiliitlun, or by any vote, or In any man
ner whatsoever, to Interfere with the ex
ercise of this undoubted discretion given to
the clerk. It Is true the lto.ird ot Super
visor must order the payment for them,
and It has the right to Insist that the cost
of the printing stall be reasonable, but
In my Judgment, has no power given It by
law to Interfere with the discretion of the
clerk In having sjch calendars printed,
where, when, and by whom, his good Judg
ment may dictate."
II. The county attorney who Is my legal
adviser as well as yours, had advised me
and you. that this la mv duty and not
III. The district court has twice held In
this judicial district that the printing and
distribution of bar dockets Is within the
control of the clerk.
IV. The supreme courts of Wisconsin and
New York, under statutes like ours, have
held the sntue.
V. You admit In your resolution that It Is
my official duty to control the printing of
ine oar uocaei.
VI. This contract was let bv me to the
Avoca Trlbjne. at a saving to the county
of more than 20 per cent, for a calendar
superior to any heretofore obtained for the
VII. Your resolution Is wholly beyond the
cope of your offlcl.-l duty.
VIII. The statement contained In your
rerolutlon that the supervisors h.ive exer
cised this authority for the last twenty
years : erroneous.

CHANCE FOR TWO CONVICTED OF MURDER
Prosecntlon of Prof. Pike Likely to
Be Dropped. Provided He Will
Not Start Dsmsge '
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. April 8 (Special.) The
Iowa supreme court held a session today,
adjourned from January, and delivered
number of opinions In appealed case.
Among them were a number ,of criminal
cases and the proportion of cases reversed
I wai unusaally largo. In the case of the
State against Jack Phillips, from Wapello
tounty, the court was compelled to .pass
on an unusual question, - Phillips was town
marshal at Eldon and made an arrest of
Clarence Debard, who was drunk. Debard
would not travel easily and the officer
struck him with his club and repeatedly
struck him over the head. Debard's skull
was "Belted and he died and Ph ilips was
indicted for murder lit the .first degree and
convlctod of mansulaughter. On appeal
the case was affirmed, but on rehearing
a new question was raised anil It waa shown
that at the poet mortem examination ,of
Debard It was shawn that ' his skull waa
abnormally thin. It was therefore con
tended that It was, the thinness of his
skull and 'not the severity with which he
was struck that- caused "his death, and the
court goes' to tar as . to at least admit
that this question should have been turned
ovpr to the Jury. The case Is reversed on
he ground that this defense was proper
and was not properly lven to the jar?.
In the 'case of .the Slate against W. W.
Ames, who was convicted at Dubuque of
embezzlement, there waa reversal because
the indictment was brought under one sec
tion of the statute and by the Instructions
of (he court the conviction was made under
an entirely different section But tho
evidenco In the case Is also reviewed and It
Is pointed out that there wa no embez-
zlement In fact. Ames was engaged In
1 winding up the affairs of a building and
; loan company and had trouble with a cer
tificate holder, who brought suit.
Did IV ot Perfect Appeal.
The case of M. O. Clemona of. Union, who
was Indicted for murder in the first de
gree and convicted of manslaughter, was
eaullv ritannaoH nt
The court found that
J "' -
th"e Proper appeal, no Indictment,
, Palld "e court waa absent during a, part
of the trial dictating Instructions, but the
.appellate court decide that this was hardly
true, as the Judge stood In the doorway and
dictated . his, Instruct 16ns to a 'reporter In
the next rootn. , The' cose was affirmed.
Insanity Cas 'front VMllsca.
' i I L. i -i
.In the Thlele- tiaatU from Montgomery
county, 'there wSa' errr'ln the instructions
of the Judge as lQvkaily. which was tbe
defense, and- on this the traversal was made.
Thlele had been separated from hla wife
and as she passed his 'house In Villisea he
rushed out Into then street aad atabbed
her three times wHh? a knife, from , which
she died In a? few minutes. It was shown
he had talked a great deal about his right
to kill his wife and-there was certainly
support of his Insanity plea.
Edward Dennis,, who was indicted wlth
Wesley Irwin and Eupene Mason far killing
Oscar Miller; a tramp., at Shenandoah, does
not get a new trlcl. '.The three men put up
a Job to -kill the tramp and Irwin and
Dennis were copvleted,,and given long terms.
In the case against UMark Vance, who was
convicted of a most repulsive crime, er
rors were found. In the matter of admissions j
by tbe lawyers and In Instructions regard
ing the statements of tbe case aa made by
both sides. ' ' .
One civil case decided ,1s ot more than
ordinary Interest. It is that ot tbe Na-'
ttonal State hank' against the city of Bur
lington Involving the question of deduct
ing value of government bonds from, the as
sets of a bank In determining the value of
its stock. Tbe court holds that no such
deduction Is possible. The case does not
Involve assessment of government bonds.
Death of Veteran Minister.
Rev. E. B. Vail, for more than forty years
prominent In the Methodist ministry In
Iowa, died at the Methodist hospital in
this city this morning. He was nearly
80 .years old and for many years was pastor
ot the Orace Methodist Episcopal church
in this city, but was also on the circuit
tor a long time. Some years ago he gave
(10,000 to the MethtAllat hospital and as he
left quite an estate it Is believed that in
his will be left other charitable bequests.
Insurance Case Decided.
An Important question in Insurance mat
ters was disposed of In the district court
In the case of Jennie Tuttle against the
Iowa Traveling Men's asioclatlon. Tuttle
lived in Kansas City and was Insured for
$5,000. He committed suicide In Kansas.
