W. C. Rogers, the Forney murder suspect,
vii yesterday afternoon held to tbe dis
trict grand Jury by Justice Ouren on the
charge of murderously assaulting Charles
W. Lctehford, who was held .up and robbed
t his moat market on South Mala street
on the night of March 2. The court over
ruled the motion of the defence for a con
tinuance until May I of the preliminary
heaiiDg In order that witnesses whose tes
timony It was alleged would prove an alibi
fcr Rogers might reach here. Rogers' ball
as again placed at $5,000, and In default of
which he was recommitted to the county
At the close of the testimony for the
state Tuesday, counsel for the defendant
Died a motion to have the hearing continued
until May . 8 on the ground that ha would
them produce witnesses who would testify
that Rogers was In Hot 8prlngs, Ark., on
March 2. In support ef his motion ha filed
with the court three letters, purported to
be written by two hotel keepers and the
proprietor of a bath house In Hot Springs,
stating that Rogers, who was known In
Hot Springs as Miller, was In that city on
the night that Letchford was held up and
robbed. The nsmea of these witnesses
wore given as H. C. Hoover, William Mau
rice and Dr. Wei. Counsel for the defend
ant also stated that he wished to bring a
witness named Thomas Nichols from
The court, being under the Impression
that the motion was nothing less than a
scheme to delay the preliminary hearing
and to prevent the authorities having Rog
ers photographed, overruled It. Rogers
will be photographed today and copies will
be sent brosdeast over the country by tbe
authorities with a view to ascertaining It
he is wanted anywhere else and learning
bis past record.
When placed under arrest on suspicion
of being Implicated In the murder of Saloon
Keeper Forney, the defendant gave the
asms of W. C. Rogers. At the Kiel hotel
he registered as Frank Parsons and the
authorities have evidence showing that at
another time he passed under the name of
Moran In this city, whlla be Is now anxious
to prove an alibi under the name of Miller.
The next term of district court will not
be held until September, but the grand Jury
will reconvene on May 4, when the case
against Rogers will be taken up by it.

SWITCHES OFFICIAL PAPERS
J ad are Wheeler Reverse County
Board In Matter of Offleial
Tbe Avoca Weekly Tribune, which was
built up out of tbe ashes of the defunct
Council Bluffs Evening Olobe and the
Council Bluffs Weekly Globe, will not, ac
cording to Judge WIteeler's ruling In dis
trict court yesterday, be one of the three
official papers of Pottawattamie county
and as such publish the proceedings of the
board of supervisors. This patronage Judge
Wheeler decides belonga to the Avoca
Journal-Herald, the publisher and pro
prietor of which F. M. Beymer, appealed
from the action of the supervisors In
awarding the contract to the Olobe Pub
lishing company, tbe publishers of the
Avoca Tribune. Tbe Council Bluffs Olobe
and the Council Bluffs Tribune, before they
succumbed for want of patronage, were
democratic in politics, but the Avoca
Tribune Into which tbe two defunct sheets
were claimed to have been merged on the
plants being removed to Avoca, is republi
can In politics.
The court found that the bona fide sub
scription list of the Avoca Tribune was
but 393 as against the 985 claimed by It be
fore the board of county supervisors.
The list of subscribers filed by the Avoca
Journal-Herald Included 663 names, but
from this the court deducted forty-six,
leaving a list of 617 bona fide yearly sub
scribers. Judge Wheeler therefore held that the
Avoca Journal-Herald had a larger num
ber of bona tide subscribers than the Avoca
Tribune and that the board of supervisors
erred in selecting the Avoca Tribnne as one
of the official papers of the county, and
accordingly reversed Its action and ordered
that the Avoca Journal-Herald be declared
one of the official papers and as auch be
awarded for the current year the publish
ing of the board's proceedings according
to law. The costs of the appeal are taxed
against the publishers of the Avoca Trib
une. The case had attracted more than or
dinary Interest as the Avoca Tribune has
been backed by a number ot leading re
publicans In Council Bluffs and throughout

has no offlc'ai significance,, being purely

the diocese, Bishop Cosgrove said he did

that tbe plans for the diocese were known
only at Rome. The agitation, he said, was
being continued, but whit the reault would

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. April 15. (Special.) The
first stats (ood roads convention was held
here today, about 150 persons being pres
ent, representing nearly every part of ths
stste. Tbe convention was called by Gov
ernor Cummins, who had been ssked to
name delegatea to a national good roads
convention lo be held the latter part of
the month In Bt. Louis. He chose rather
to call a state convention and have that
convention nam the delegates. Ths at
tendance was food. Representstlves were
hers from counties and cltlea and from
commercial bodies of all kinds.
The meeting wss called to order by D. B.
Lyons, president of ths local commercial
exchange. Words of welcome were spoken
by Msyor Brenton snd Governor Cum
mins, snd the latter briefly outlined his
views In regard to ths pressing necessity
for good roads legislation In ths stats of
lows. There wss present representatives
of ths Nstlonal Good Roada association
and of the office of good roada Inquiry for
th Department ot Agriculture at Wash
ington, and they were hers to urge that
some action be taken to further the csuse
ot good roads. They desired to have ths
people of Iowa Indorse th general move
ment, and especially to recommend the
Brownlow bill, which purposes the appro
priation of $30,000,000 from the nstlonal
treasury for good roads.
R. W. Richardson, formerly of Ne
braska, representing ths Department
ot Agriculture, waa ths principal
speaker for the afternoon. He
spoke ot th work that has been done
In th vsrlous states In regard to good
roada and especially urged that the state
aid plan, in use in the most progressive
eastern states, be sdopted. This plan is
In fores in a number of states and is not
an experiment at all. The state makes a
direct appropriation for the road building
and there ia a atate engineer or highway
commission or other designated body which
supervises the work. The cost is appor
tioned usually a half or third to the atate,
and generally about 16 per cent to ths
owners of abutting property and 35 per cent
to the county. New York state pays half
of ths expecs of these roads. The sys
tem has been In use ill that state about
ten years with excellent results. In Mas
sachuchstts, where they have a similar sys
tem, they are getting splendid results in
all parts of ths state. It is being used In
Connecticut, New Jersey snd has Just been
sdopted In New Hampshire.
Others who addressed the convention

Colonel Killebrew, Nashville, Tenn.; and
Judge McVey of this city. W. W. Loomls,
