William WycolT, an old soldier living at
260S Fifth avenue, Is ths latest victim ot
the holdup men. While on his way home
Thursday night with the proceeds of his
quarterly pension check In his pocket he
was held up and robbed by two men In
Cochran park. The robbers secured $20
which Wycoff had In his Test pocket, but
overlooked $40 he was carrying In his
trouser's pocket. The men were evidently
aware that Wycoff had drawn his pension
that day and were waiting lor him In the
park. One of them held a revolver to his
face while the other searched him. When
the fellows stepped from behind a tree and
ordered Wycoff to hold up his hands one
of them said: "Hello, Bill; we want that
money we know you have got In your
pockets." After they had taken the $20
from bis vest pocket Wycoff expostulated,
saying they had no right to rob an old
soldier. The fellow with the revolver told
Wycoff to go to a warm place and with an
oath threatened to crack him over the head
if he did not go on his way home. Wycoff
armed himself with a gun yesterday and
went searching for the robbers, but failed
to locate them. He reported the robbery to
the police last evening.

ADMITS TOLL SERVICE OStY
Amended Telephone Ordinanoe Btadj for
the Committee of the Whole.
WILL NOT ALLOW SECOND EXCHANGE
Special Committee) of City Canncll
Completes Its Work and Is
Ready to gabmit to Full
Aldermen Lovett, Casper and Tlnley,
Mayor Morgan and City Solicitor Snyder,
the special committee appointed by the city
council, completed Its work yesterday aft
ernoon of framing an ordinance for an In
dependent toll telephone system which it
will now submit to the committee of the
whole for its approval or rejection. The
committee ot the whole will meet Monday
afternoon to consider the ordinance and to
frame its report, which, it Is expected,
will be made at the meeting of the city
council Monday night.
The ordinance as It tiow stands does not
meet with too complete favcr o! at least
two members of the special committee,
who are desirous of granting a franchise to
a company to that It can establish a s?o
ond and Independent telephone system with
an exchange in the city. The ordinance Is
drawn to conform to the Instructions of the
committee of tho whole, which voted in
favor of an exclusive toll telephone sys
tem and against a second local exchange.
A number ot amendments were made
in the ordinance yesterday by the commit
tee so as to preclude any possibility of it
being construed to grant a right to estab
lish a local exchange and second tele
phone system in the city.
Soma Stringent Provisions.
Section 7 of the ordinance s originally
drafted by the city solicitor had a number
cf amendments tacked on to It. One Is
that the franchise shall in no case be con
strued to grant any right to make connec
tions or to construct or operate sny ex
change between subscribers, toll stations or
persons living within the city limits. An
other is that telephone communication and
connection for all of Its toll stations (the
words "toll stations" being inserted In
place of "subscribers") In the city of Coun
cil Bluffs shall be given with any of the
subscribers In the rural exchange at regu
lar toll rate charges, the same to be agreed
to by the city council. A further amend
ment to this section provides that the
tolls charged to non-subscribers within said
rural exchange district shall not exceed
10 cents for a service of five minutes. A
previous section designates the rural ex
change district as a ten-mile radius from
the postofflce of Council Bluffs.
One amendment to the original ordinance
provides that as one ot the considerations
for the granting ot the franchise the com
pany obtaining it shall agree that within
eighteen months it will maks such ar
rangements and establish such connections
with the lines of the companies belonging
to the Iowa State Independent Telephone
association si to ' enable its patrons to
communicate with the subscribers snd pat
rons of said companies over their Joint
lines. Failure to provide such connection
will forfeit the franchise.
Prohibits Local Eickance,
In order to prevent the ordinance being
construed as granting the right to estab
lish a local exchange and telephone system
within the city this section was tacked onto
That nothing in this ordinance shall be
construed as in any manner granting the
right and authority to said company. Its
successors or assigns, to construct, main
tain and operate a general telephone sys
tem and exchange in the city of Council
Another amendment provides that the
company obtaining the franchise shall
within five days from the acceptance of the
ordinance granting it, must pay the city
the sum of $1,000 and the city binds Itself
to pay back to the company this sum
within ten days of the passage of a reso
lution by the city council approving the
completion and installation ot the system.
This secMon takes the place of one provid
ing for the furnishing by the company ob
taining the franchise ot a bond for the
faithful performance ot Its contract.

NOTHING NEW IN FORNEY CASE
Chaney Put In Inestbox, hot Denies
Any Connection with the
There were no new developments in the
Forney murder case yesterday, although
the police stated they were securing evi
dence which tended to further implicate
Chaney in the crime. Chaney was put in
the sweatbox yesterday by Chief Tlbbtts,
but nothing was obtained from him except
his repeated declaration that he was inno
cent of tho shooting.
Chaney's Eudden arrest Thursday night.
It Is said, was due to the fact that the
authorities received Intimation that he and
his wife were preparing to leave tha city.
It Is said that they were trying to rent
their house and making other arrangements
for a sudden departure.
Reports have corao to the police that
Chaney, since the arrest of Rorer3. whom
he prcfcErrd to identify as one rf the high
waymen, has been telling several persons
that the gun used by the man who shot
Forney was a cheap nickel-plated weapon.
The bullets taken from Forney's body were
from a 41-calIber revolver such as was
found on Rogers. From the fact that
Chaney was telling about the highwayman
who he claimed shot Forney using a cheap
nickel-plated weapon leads the police to
think friends of Rogers had been tampering
Rogers was photographed yesterday and
his pictures will be sent- out broadcast by
the authorities. Rogers resisted having Ms
picture taken and contorted his features
every time the photographer attempted to
snap the camera on him. He drew his face
up all out of shape and four pictures had
to be taken before one was secured that
was at all satisfactory.

was decided upon yesterday afternoon at a
meeting of the executive committee of the
Commercial club after a conference with
the committees of the local Pythian lodges.
In order to secure the meeting here of
the Pythian grand lodge In August it will

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April 17. (Special.) Mrs.
Mary Davis was burned to death In her
kitchen at 2 o'clock this afternoon. She
was engaged In washing and an explosion
of oil enveloped her In flames, so that she
was burned to death very quickly. No
one was present at the time, and whether
she placed the oil in the fire and an ex
plosion followed, or whether there was a
mistake and she was given gasoline for
kerosene. Is not known. A neighbor, Mrs.
James Shenk, saw smoke Issuing from the
windows and ran out into the street to
call assistance. John Fletcher, who was
Just across the street, ran over and he
and Mrs .Shenk broke in the kitchen door.
The room was filled with smoke and only
by foiling his way about did he find the
body of Mrs. Davis, lying on the kitchen
flocr already lifeless. He dragged the
body out and Mrs. Shenk threw a blanket
over her to put out the flames, but It was
useless. The head and face and upper
part of the body of Mrs. Davis were badly
burned and she had evidently died in
agony, but very quickly, partly from burns
and partly from suffocation. Mrs. Davis
was the widow of Lincoln Davis, a miner
who was killed in a Saylorville coal mine
a year ago. She leaves three small chil
dren. Her mother lives in Boone. Tho
corouer was called and proceeded to mako
investigation to determine whether some
one else had made a mistake in the ' de
livery of oil to hor.
Mngraxlne Rifles Received.
Adjutant General Byers this morning
received the COO new Krag-Jorgenaen
rir.es, EhlppeJ to the state from the Rock
Irl.nd arsenal, to be distributed lo mem
bers of the Fifty-fourth regiment, - Iowa
National Guard. Theso arc the first rifles
that have been distributed under the new
Dick bill and the distribution is . mado
ahead ot the inspections by tho army offi
cers because of tho desire to have the
guns when the regiment goes to St. Louis
to appear in the parade on the visit of tho
president there. The routes and trains
for the regiment have all been arranged
and these arms will be sent nut to tho
twelve companies next week. The old
arms will be retained until after the guard
inspection some time next month.
An effort Is being made by Marshalltown
to eecure the vacancy in the Fifty-first
regiment due to the dropping out of Bed
ford. The Marshalltown . company was
mustered out some time ago because the
people would not assist In the erection of
an armory. They now propose building an
armory and securing a new company.
Perry's Body Taken Away.
The body of Arthur Perry, the suicide
and would-be murderer, was taken to Mo
ravia, la., today. A man named J. J.
Hicks came trom Moravia, and took pos
session of the bedy. It had been remom-
bered that a short time ago Perry told his
employer to send for Hicks In case any
thing happened to him, but did . not say
where Hicks lived. Then it was found he
had relatives at Moravia. A telegram sent
to Hicks at Moravia elicited a quick re
sponse. But Mr. Hicks would not give any
information ss to the Identity of Perry
and it Is now generally believed his name
was Hicks and not Perry, and for some
reason had changed his name. It now
transpires that Perry had refused to re
veal to any of his friends the Identity of
his parents or where they lived, and had
always refused to talk about his past. Mra.
Bruco, who was shot by Perry, is recov
ering. Kcarroea and the President.
The negroes of Des Moines, of whom there

route the president is to trPvel In Des

Roosevelt and desire to make a demon

IOWA DOCTORS GET INTO LINE
Pat Their State Society on the Bants
of tba . American Medical
SIOUX CITY, la., April 17. (Special Tel
egram.) Young doctors against old doctors
was the character oi a struggle In the
Iowa State Medical society convention,
which closed here today with the adoption
of the new constitution. This aligns thi
society with the American Medical asso
ciation, which some of the doctors term
the "great medical trust." It will vir
tually force all doctors to enter local
county societies. If they sre not mem
bers of local societies they cannot be mem
bers of a state or national society. It was
opposed on the ground that it savored ot
trades unionism. Each society will be en
titled to cne delegate in the house of
delegates, which will transact the business
of the state society. If the local society
has over fifty members, the representation
Will bo one delegate tor every fifty mem
bers or fraction thereof. If a doctor falls
to pay his dues, the local society will have
to expel him or forfeit Its membership.
Dr. J. .A. Scroggs of Keokuk, Its newly
elected president, was inducted Into tbe
chair before tbe adjournment of the ses
