The Sunday closing law, which County
Attorney Ktllpack enforced among the
saloons of Council Bluffs will also be en
forced at Lake Manawa this summer. This
was the authoritative statement of Mr.
Killpack yesterday, who said: "There will
be no more liquor sold at Lake Manawa
on Sunday this summer than will be by
the saloons of this city." This statement
was made by the county attorney In re
sponse to a query whether there was any
truth In the report that the officials of
the motor company had been assured that
there would be no Interference this season
In the aale of liquor at the lake resort on
Sundays. Further Mr. Killpack said the
question required no argument, the saloons
In the city were required to close on Sun
days and the same rule would prevail
at Lake Manawa.
In addition to the refreshment pavilion
in the plaza at Lake Manawa, where liquor
is sold, there are three saloons outside the
grounds of the resort proper and these
will also have to abide by the Sunday clos-
Ing order. It I a question, however, whether

n...n. itranlt of Contests Over
Offices in Woman's
The meeting yesterday afternoon of the
Council Bluffs Woman'a club to nominate
officers for the ensuing year proved as ex-
riilnr as had been anticipated. The two
factions met, clashed and both came out
of the battle victorious. The faction known
a the "antls" claimed a victory, as they
nominated their candidate for president,
while the other faction also claimed a
victory from the fact that they succeeded
In having the action of the board In fram
ing a new rule to govern the nominations
partially rescinded. The new rule pro
vided that no further nominations could
be made from the floor on the day of elec
tion and the members opposed to this,
what they termed arbitrary ruling of the
board, succeeded In having It amended so
that on the day of eleotlon nomination
might be made to fill Tacancle. After the
meeting both sides appeared to be well
satisfied with the outcome.
Half of the entire membership of the
club was named for the office of president,
but one after the other declined with the
exception of Mrs. F. W. Miller, the candi
date of the "antta," and unless she resigns
between this and the day of election she
will be the next president- of the club.
The nominations for first vice president
were Mrs. O. D. Wheeler. Mrs. O. H. Rich
mond and Mrs. J. H. Cleaver. Mrs. J. K.
Cooper and Mr. C. G. Saundera were also
placed In nomination, but they withdrew.
For second vice president the nomination
fell to Mrs. C. O. Saunders after Mrs.
Wheeler and Mrs. 8. B. Snyder withdrew.
For recording secretary there were eight
nominations, but all declined with the ex
ception of Miss Flora Judson. who was not
present, and she was declared the nominee.
For corresponding secretary Miss Mar
garet O'Donnell was given a unanimous
For treasurer Mr. J. H. Cleaver, Mr.
Victor Jennings, Mrs. O. P. McKesson and
Mrs. Charles Swalne were nominated.
For membera of the finance committee
Mts. E. J. Towsley. Mrs. J. E. Hunter. Mrs.
J. K. Cooper. Mrs. E. C. Smith and Miss
Dodge were nominated.
Mrs. Walter I. Smith, the retiring presi
dent of the club, waa given a flattering en
dorsement of her candidacy for president
of the State Federation of Woman'a clubs.
Mrs. Smith. In thsnklng the club for it
endorsement, stated that she had been
pledged to Mrs. Bailey of Dea Moine. who
was seeking a re-election, but that the
women of southwestern Iowa appeared de
termined that she be a candidate, so she
had finally consented In deference to their
wishes to allow her name to go before
the convention.
The election of the Council Bluffs Worn-
an's club will be held at the meeting on
the Brat Friday in June.
Think They Can Coaasart Hint with
Series of Robberies In
that City.
The authorities of Clinton. Ta.. are anx
ious to obtain possession of W. C. Rogers,
the Forney murder suspect, who 1 in the
county Jail awaiting the action of tho
grand Jury on hla case. In which he la
charged with murderously assaulting and
robbing Charles W. Lelchford, .the South
Main atreet butcher. It Is charged that
Rogera was Implicated lu a number of bur
glaries In Clinton with George Burrier,
who I under arrest there.
George Burrier, it la alleged, wa a part
rer of Roger and wa with him In Council
Bluff at the time the aafe in the office of
the Evans Laundry company was blown
Burrier Is said to have made a canfesstoi
to the Clinton authorities in which ha Im
plicated Rogers In a number of the robber
les committed in that city.
Among the burglaries said to have been
committed by Burrier and Rogers In Clin
ton waa one at the home of C. Fay. where
diamonds to the value of 1 1.300 were given
up by membera of the family at the point of
revolvers In the hands of the robbers at I
o'clock on the morning of November 3 last.
L. E. Fay. a brother of C. Pay. Burrier'
attorney, and a Clinton detective visited
Rogers at the county Jail and endeavors!
to secure an admission from the prisoner
corroborating the alleged confession of
Burrier. In this, however, they were un
successful, as Rogers persisted that Bur
rier must have referred to soma othsr
Roger and denied being a partner of the
mil under arrest In Clinton.
Enrouts here the Clinton party stopped
at Atlantic, where they Interviewed a
woman named Etta Odens. who It was aald
claimed to have Information connecting
Rogers with ths Clinton robberies. The
Odeaa woman staled that Rogers and Bur
rler were partner and that they made their
headquarters at a resort on Ninth street
In Omaha when working In this vicinity.
This statement the Clinton detective has
verified In a visit to the place mentioned
In Omaha, hut failed to secure any trace
or Information of the whereabouts of the
Fay diamonds.
The grand Jury will reconvene In this
city Monday, when Rogers' case will b-5
taken up. If no Indictment Is found against
him he will probably be turned over to thi
Clinton authorities, although the local po
lice are loth to lose him, as they believe
he Is wanted somewhere and that there Is
possibly a reward out for his capture.
