tying Mark.
A young man whose Identity has not yet
been completely established was found
dead In his bed at the Creston house on
South Main street yesterday afternoon. He j
registered as George McDonald of Omaha
but the return check of a pass on the
Pennsylvania railroad found In his pockets
gives the nam of Hugh Culmer. Cir
cumstance Indicate that the young man
committed suicide by swallowing morphine.
He arrived late Saturday night at the
Creston house and after signing the reg
ister a Oeorge McDonald of Omaha, was
assigned to a room for the night, for
which he paid. He had no luggage but
was fairly well dressed. The fact that he
did not leave his room Sunday although
he had only paid for one night's lodging,
doe not appear to have excited any com
ment at the hotel. The door of hi room
was not locked and the chambermaid
stated that she did not disturb him Sun
day as when she went to his room he was
snoring and she supposed he did not wish
to be awakened. When found yesterday
afternoon at 8 o'clock the body was cold
and stiff and Coroner Treynor expressed
the opinion that the young man had been
dead since Saturday night. Tha appear
ance of the body showed that mortifica
tion had set in.
He was lying on the bed clad only In his
undervest and drawers with his hands
folded upon hi breast. On the floor at
the aide of the bed was a pipe and tobacco
ashes were visible on the dead man's
breast and the side of the bed Indicating
that the pipe had dropped from his mouth
a he had fallen asleep or succumbed to
the drug, which It Is believed he had taken
with suicidal Intent
On the washstand near the bed was a
loaded revolver, but this had not been dis
charged. In the room Itself there was
nothing to Indicate the manner In which
he had come by his death and at first It
was supposed . he had died from natural
causes. The finding, however, of a small
cardboard box such are used by drug
gists, labelled "morphine" In the area way
beneath the open window of the room led
to tha suspicion that he had taken his own
life. The box was empty and ther was
nothing on it to indicate where it came
from. A alight emission from the mouth
when the body waa moved indicated the
presence of some 'Such drug a morphine.
Besides the revolver 83(1 in change wa
found on the washstand and a first search
of the clothe failed to reveal any paper
which lead to the Identification of the dead
man. Th only mark on the clothing
wa a nam on th collar written In In
delible pencil and evidently over some
other name. A far a It could be made
out the nam on th collar was M. R.
Geadlee. After th body had been re
moved to Lunkley's undertaking rooms,
the return check of a pass on the Penn
sylvania railroad from Chicago to Spencer,
Ind., good from Anrii 24 tn Mv 71 lva I
and made out In th nam of Hugh Culmer,
account of agent, wa found tucked away
In the corner of the pocket of the vest.
This would Indicate that the pass had been
Issued at Spencer, Ind.
The handwriting of the dead man on
the hotel register appears to be that of a
telegraph operator or railroad clerk. Th
fact that one of the sleeves of his shirt
wa spotted with Ink Is taken to Indicate
that he occupied some clerical position.
City Attorney Finds Ko Precedent to
Gald Him la Library
t Case.
At th meeting of the library board last
night City Solicitor Snyder submitted th
following report regarding th question of
commencing condemnation proceedings to
secure a title to th Shugart property se
lected as th sit for the Carnegie library
Under th will of Mrs. Shugart, E. L.
Shugart holds a life estate In tills property
and upon his death It belongs to his two
sons and th heir of their body, share and
share alike, but if either of the aons die
without issue his share is to belong to the
children of the other son. While both of
the sons are living, it Is impossible to tell
in whom the title to the property will
eventually veat. The statutes of this state
provide that In order to condemn lands
notice of such proceedings must be served
on the owner. Ther Is no provision cov
ering cases where It Is Impossible to make
such service. It Is possible that service
on a trustee of the property may be con
strued to be service on the owner, but we
have no precedent in this slat confirming
this view of the matter.
The only case I have been able to find
In which th fact are similar to those
presented In this matter la Charleston
Railway Company against Hughes. (Amer
ican Stat Report, vol. Ixx, page 18.)
In that case the testator left his property
to his three daughtera for life, with th
remainder over to auch child or children
of them as may be living at their re
spective deaths. The railway company
condemned a part of th property of on
of the daughters and In doing so made the
daughter a party tn the proceedings. The
owner of th remainder afterward brought
action to recover the property, and In the
decision In that esse tha court hss this to
say: "If the condition of the title to the
property, at the time of the condemnation
prooeedlnga, is such that notice cannot be
made upon all Interested, notlre to such ss
sre definitely known to be Interested would
not be held to be sufficient to deprive of
their rights others whose Identity waa un
known, hut who. interest In th prop,
erty waa ascertainable.
"Condemnation proceedings pass title to
whatever Interests tit parties who took
part In the proceedings have In the prop
erty, and a party who could not be notified
h nm c-ouna ny in award or Judgment,
in auch cases the railway company would
foil to acquire a perfect title to the prop
erty, and this Imposes no greater hardship
upon the railroad company than It does
upon any other person who desires to pur
ehase property In which ther Is a contin
gent Interest In someone whnae Identity
cannot be determined at the time of the
purchase. Condemnation proceedings are
no more than a mmpulsnrv sale of all the
owners' Inter In th property, and no

No action was taken by th board be
yond accepting th report and ordering
the secretary to notify Mr. Bhugart of the
city solicitor's opinion In the matter. It
was stated that Mr. Shugart had referred
the question of the title of his propsrty to
a firm of attorneys who hsd ss yet not
had time to look Into the mstter so the
board decided to defer further action until
next Monday night to which time It adjourned.

Imogteae and Vicinity Have a Costly
Experience with a
SHENANDOAH, la., May 28. (Special.)
An Idea can b gained of the sudden
ness and volume, of rain which fell In this
section last week best by reviewing th
experience of the people of Imogen, ten
mile northwest of here. There a small
creek runs through the town and' In a
very short time, not more than half an
hour after th storm had reached Its
height, the creek was a river half a mil
wide. It swept down through the town
carrying fences, haystacks, chicken coops,
any and all kinds of things that would
float, chickens, geese, horses, cattle,
trees, and when it reached th town It
picked up and carried away nearly 85,000
worth of lumber belonging to William
Crone. The lumber yard waa on the west
side of the railroad and of town, and
th water was three feet - deep In the
office. It washed out th scales In front
of th office. Mr. Crone says that his
lumber stock invoiced 88,000 a short time
sgo and more than half of It la scattered
down th creek for a mile or two. That
not carried off la badly damaged, so that
Ms loss will easily reach 83.000, after as
much of It as possible is recovered.
Th section house occupied by Mr. Rye
berg was also located on low ground and
Just after supper Mrs. Ryeburg remarked
to her husband that the water had come
up round the cow, tied In the yard. He
went out and led the cow to safety and
when he returned the water had sur
rounded the house. Th children were
first carried to the railroad track and
then Mr. Ryeberg waded, water nearly
waist deep, to rescue his wlfs. A mo
ment later the house went sailing down
the stream, with smoke pouring from the
chlntney as peacefully as ever. Some
of th household goods were recovered,
but when th house went to pieces nearly
everything was lost.
A big house belonging to Tom Clark,
half a mile further down the stream,
was damaged by the wind and when the
water came up It tore off a big ell of the
hous and carried that off. Mr. Clark's
barn waa wrecked by the wind, smashed
flat, and when a company of his neigh
bors went over to lend asslstanc It wa
said that a horse had been In the barn
when It was crushed. Four tons of ha
and tha wrecked building were dug from
over the animal, which wa cliushed flat
to the ground, but when rescued was
calmly eating hay and when released
wnlked off apparently unhurt.
Every bridge on th small stream for
tour miles In each direction from
Imogen wa washed out and trsde from
west of town waa entirely cut off. The
supervisors of Fremont county estimate
that It wilt cost 83.000 to replace them.

DES MOINES, May .-(Speclal.)-An In
tcrestlng life romance covering two con
tinent and a long span of life waa aired In
th supreme court today, when oral argu
ments wet heard In the case of Susanna
Casliy against B. F. Mitchell, from Calhoun
county. Involving the disposition of the es
tate of the late John Wallace of Rockwell
City. When Wallace dlea and the estate
had been settled up Susanna Casley of
Cornwall, England, set up a claim to
third Interest In certain lands sold to
Mitchell. She claimed she was th lawful
wife of Wallace and that hi nam was in
fact Casley, and that after their marriage
In the little town of St. Just, Cornwall,
about thirty years sgo, Casley left and
came to th United State. He waa a coal
miner and worked In Pennsylvania, then tn
Colorado In the silver mines and later In
southern Iowa and then near Des Moines.
Wallace and Ms wife, to whom he was
married in Pennsylvania, finally removed to
a Calhoun county farm and later retired
and moved Into Rockwell City. They wer
prominent In buafness and In the church.
The discovery that Wallace's real nam
waa .Casley and that he had a wife still
ltvins in Cornwall came as a great shock
to the people who had known him In his
later day, but she proved her cae to th
satisfaction of the lower court and r.n ap
peal was ttken. Mrs. Cosley had lived In
poverty since her desertion many year
ago, and she now stands a show to get
some small portion of the estata.
The supreme court divided today on an
Important matter, that of evidence regard
ing due diligence and car In accident. In
th ease of Ames against Waterloo & Cedar
Falls Railway company, the question of
recovery for a fatal accident turned on
whether the -person killed wa exercising
due care at the time he stepped In front of
a street car. The court In an opinion pre
pared by McClaln declared that there wa
evidence In th cos on this point, but not
to show that he was exercising care, and
the lower court properly directed a verdict
for the defendant. Two members of the
court. Weaver and Deemer, took the view
that because the street car was moving at
an Illegal rat of speed th rase should
have gone jto the Jury, and there should
have been a presumption that the man wa
using due car.
The following wer th decision of the
supreme court rendered today:
A. J. Col, appellant, against John John
son: Hancock county. Judge Clyde: af
firmed by the court.
Martin Rllev aaalnat J. E. Bell, appel

Flaw tn Oleo Indictment.
Judge Given In the district court hsa
postponed sentence In the case of the con
viction of the Armour Packing company
for Illegal sale of oleomargarine, because
of the discovery that the Indictment was
defective In that the name of the person
to whom the oleomargarine' wa sold was
not Included In the Indictment. This will
necessitate reference back to the grand
Jury for correction and a second trial. In
all other respects the district court has
sustained the position of the county at
torney and the state dairy cdmmlssloner
who brought the prosecution. The final
settlement of the matter will therefore
be delayed until fall. There are twenty
seven licensees engaged In selling oleo
margarine In Des Moines and over 2M In
the state. The Armour company Is said
to be doing most of the business and to
have backed up the dealers In a fight to
test th lw. Sample hav been sub
mitted to the state dairy commissioner for
him to declare whether the samples ars
forbidden by law but he ha declined to
Issue any certificate and some of those
who hav been selling ar going out of

LOS ANGELES. Cal.. May 25. Th re
port of tho standing committee on Freed-
men, the special committee on education,
young people' societies and Presbyterian
building at Occidental college, made up the
additional program of the Presbyterian
general assembly today.
Discussion of tho report submitted by
th special committees brought a wider
rang of debate than any of those thu far
submitted to the general assembly. The
Freedman's committee report gave oppor
tunity for all the colored commissioners to
be heard and there were ringing speeches
from these representatives of the south.
Prospects of a debate in the assembly
this morning brought out a large attend
ance In th galleries of Immanuel church.
The commissioner were all In attendance
and lost no time In coming to the business
before them. Th report of the Freedmen'a
committee waa read by Dr. C. P. Cheese
man, chairman.
Dr. Cheeseman, In commenting upon th
report said:
There has come before this assembly this
year a problem demanding our interest and
requiring our beat thought, the present
condition of th freedmen. Who old the
black man Into slavery but the whites?
This Is history, and as a result we hav a
moral responsibility to meet. This race Is
her to stay. They have a right to stay.
We gave them their freedom. We must
give them education. Now I want to say
that we must resolve to put 13(10,000 to this
end. We ought to have a million, but what
is the use of resolving If we do not set?
It Is our duty. Something Is wrong when
the richest churches In the land give a
mere pittance to this work, when they give
large sums to other objects.

of freedmen, said In brief:
