APPLIES SAME RULE AS IN THE CITY Some Qaeatlon Whether He Ha Jurisdiction Oter the Manhattan Beach Side of the Reaort. 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 County Attorney Killpack win do a Die to stop the sale of liquor on the Manhattan beach aide of the lake, a thla I said to h on Nebraska soil. The enforcement of the Sunday closing order. It Is conceded will materially affect the patronage of the lake resort this summer and drive a large number of pleasure eeker to CourtlanJ beach or other resort In Omaha. Plumbing and heating.

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fact that they succeeded In having the action of the board In fram ing a new rule to govern the nominations partially rescinded.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 nomination. 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. CLINTON MEN AFTER ROGERS 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.
