In George Williams, alias Burk, and
Neely Zimmerman, arrested yesterday
afternoon, tho police feel confident they
have the two negror who robbed and
attempted to criminally assault Mrs. Mary
Btarks and her daughter, Mrs. Harry Ban
ders, late Christmas night. In addition
to being Identified by Mrs. Sanders as
the men who assaulted here and her
mother, the actions of the two negroes
when taken Into custody, the police say,
Indicate their guilt. They were arrested
at 160S Third avenue, where they were
found With the two colored women said
to have been their companions on the
street car Friday night. The women, who
gave the names of Emma Eubanks and
Delia Burk, the latter said to be the wife
of George Williams, alias Burk, were also
taken Into custody. The men were later
taken to the county Jail for better pro
tection, but the women are being held
at the city jail.
The two negroes who assaulted Mrs.
Btarks and Mrs. Banders after they left
the car at Sixteenth street and Avenue A
were accompanied by two colored women
who left the car at Fourteenth street, and
It was working pn this clew that led the
police to arrest Williams and Zimmerman.
It was learned that Williams and Zim
merman and the two colored women went
to Omaha early Christmas evening to
visit friends. Later In the evening tho
four went to the Colored Walters' club
rooms In tha basement at Fourteenth and
Douglas streets, where they stayed for
Ilartender Furnishes Tine.
While waiting for a Council Bluffs car
at Twelfth and Douglas streets, the four
tried to get' drinks at Moran'a saloon,
but the bartender refused to serve the
colored women. The men drank a glass
of beer each and thn with the women
boarded tho car. The men took seats
, opposite Mrs. Btarks and Mrs. Banders,
while the women stood up In the aisle.
The bartender at Moranin saloon has not
been over yet to Identify the negroes, but
the description by him to the police of
the two who Visited the saloon answers
that ' of the men under arrest. In fact,
the description given by the bartender
of the two negroes was the first clew
which the police say led them to arrest
Williams and Zimmerman.
The ne&roes and their women compan
ions asked for and received transfers to
the Fifth avenue line, but when the car
reached Sixteenth atreet on Avenue A,
and Mrs. Btarks and Mrs. Banders got off,
the two negroes followed, saying to their
companions, "Guess we'll get off here,"
at the same time handing them their
transfer- slips. The women asked to be
let oft tA fifteenth- street, but the con
ductor was unable to signal the motor
man to stop until the car reached Four
teenth street, when the two colored
Women alighted. These facts gave the
police a direct clew to where the men and
Seek to Elude Officers.
Detectives Murphy and Harding and Offi
cers Hayes and Loranaen were detailed to
make the arrest yesterday afternoon and
they reached the frame cottage at laUS
Third avenue shortly after 1 o'clock. Zim
merman, who answers the description of
the big negro who assaulted Mrs. Banders,
was in bed and to the officers he said he
had been suffering from rheumatism for
two weeks, during which Urns he had been
unable to leave his bed. One of the officers
pulled down tho bed clothing and Zimmer
man waa found to be fully dressed except
as to his trousers. He was even wearing
his coat and vest and it Is supposed that
when lie saw the police nearlng the houae
he attempted to undress and only suc
ceeded in getting his trousers off before
At first nothing was to be seen of Wil
liams, the smaller of the two negroes, who
Is said to have been the one who assaulted
Mrs. Btarks, but a search of the house re
sulted In finding him curled up In corner
behind a piano.
The men were taken to Twelfth street
and Broadway, where the nearest police
patrol box is and a call aent for the patrol
wagon. By the time the wagon arrived
quite a crowd had gathered and had the
wagen been drluyed any longer It might
have gone hard with the riegroea under ar
rest. Hardly had they been placed In the
wagon when the crowd made a rush for
them and several men attempted to climb
In after them. Patrol Driver L. Carlson,
however, whipped up his homes and the
crowd was soon left behind. There waa no
demonstration at the city Jail and after the
men had been searched and booked they
were taken to te county Jail. Chief Tlb
blts believing they would be safer there
In rate there should be any attempt to deal
summarily with them.
The patrol wagon then returned to the
cottage on Third avenue and 'the two col
ored women were taken to the city Jail.
They are charged with secreting stolen
property. The officers. In searching the
house, found a quantity of clothing, part
t which was Identified by William Holder
as having been stolen from his ynrd at lt'rt!

The news of the arrest soon spread and
by the time the patrol wagon reached the
house the second time, to convey the
women to the jail there were at least S00
men. women and children gathered In front
of It. No demonstration, however, was
made against the women, although many
In the crowd were heard to say that the
negroes ought to be lynched.
Before the two negroes ere taken from
the house Mrs. Banders was brought there
by Detective Murphy and she at once, on
seeing Zimmerman, said he was the man
who assaulted her. Bhe said that after he
had taken her pocketbook the big negro
seized her by the throat and told her he

Those fflgntna; Petition to Legislature
Bay that Coaarll Bluffs Is Too
Far from Center of
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Dec. 27. (Special.) A
numler of the deaf persons residing in
Des Moines have started a movement to
Induce the legislature to remove the state
school for the deaf and dumb which Is
now near Council Bluffs to a new site at
Des Moines. The petition to the members
of the legislature to this effect is signed by
David O. Watson, J. O. Harris, Walter C.
DeArmond, Lyman K. Glenn and Will M.
Wright. They represent to the legislature
that there has been a petition freely circu
lated In the eastern part of the state for
the establishment of a separate school for
the deaf in the eastern part of the state,
the sole reason assigned being that the
school at Council Bluffs Is too far removed
from a large portion of the state for tha
convenience of the students.
Efforts have been, made In the past to
secure establishment of a school at Du
buque or In some other part of the state
not far removed from there. But a school
located near the center of the State would
serve the purpose 'quite as well. It is
stated that the parents of deuf children
refuse to send their children to the school,
because It Is so far from their homes, and
in tho case of many children It Involves
more than an all-day ride on the cars. The
Btate Board of Control has recommended
that the school be located on a better site
than at present before rebuilding la com
menced. The board does not Indicate a
desire to have the school removed, to an
other city, but might be satisfied with a
better location near Council Bluffs. The
deaf people living In the central and east
ern part of tho state appeal for removal

Material for a Museum.
The beautiful monument to the memory
of the Iowa soldiers and sullors which
stands near the state cupltol may be In
part duplicated In a museum in Copen
hagen, Denmark. Carl Kohl-Bmlth, the
aculptor to whom was entrusted the work
of finishing the general design of Harriet
Ketcham and who worked out the statuary
which adrona the monument, was born Itn
Copenhagen, and after atudylng In Paris
and working In various cities of Europe
he established a studio In Chicago. He was
working there when the monument commis
sion employed him to finish the work of
the soldiers' monument for Iowa. His
work is greatly ndmlred and some have
aald that his best work was done on thta
monument. There are four great equestrian
statues, representing four Iowa command
ers, on horseback, namely, General Gren
vllle M. Dodge, General John M. Corse,
General Marcelhn M. Crocker and General
Samuel R. Curtis. Besides, thla there are
medallions and figures representing the
artillery, the cavalry, the lnfantryand the
navy. It la now proposed by the old neigh
bors of the sculptor that duplicatea of his
a-1 works shall be placed In a museum
In Copenhagen, and a representative of the
family has been lit Des Moines trying to
find the original plaster casts from which
the bronses were made. They have not all
been found, but some of them have been
located. 3ome of the larger and finer
pieces have gone to state Institutions und
some are In parks. It Is believed that
nearly all will be found and duplicates wl'.l
be aent to Denmark. Mr. Rohl-Bmlth died
a few years ago. ,
School Exhibit of Iowa.
In connection with the State Teachers'
association meeting this week there haa
been arranged In one of the school build
ings of the city a fine exhibit of school
work from all parts of tho state. This haa
been gathered under tha direction of tha
educational committee of the atate exposi
tion commission, acting In conjunction with
the State department of education. All the
schools of the state have been aiiked to
contribute and especially he rural schools.
The exhibit has -been carefully arranged
here so that it may be inspected by the
teachers and others, and a committee will
make selection of the material to be saved
and made uae of at St. Louis next year.
The selection of the committee will not be
final, but other contributions are to bo
sought to add to the exhibit from time to
time. The work embraces all kinds of
school work, and It will fairly represent
what Is being done in tha schools of the
Moilna; Into Ken Warehouse.
Tho work of- moving the books and rec
ords from the storerooms In tho basement
of the state eapltol to the new rooms In the
new state warehouse has commenced. For
several days workmen have been busy re
moving the stored books. A carload or two
of Iowa codes was first to go into the new
building and then a number of, dray loads
of old session laws went over. The latter
were found In the garret beneath one of
the smaller domes of the eapltol at the
aouth end. The old reporta will be taken
over to' the warehouse next week and grad
ually the eapltol building will be cleared
of a vast nmqunt of material that has made
the corridors and extra rooms unsightly
for many days. The warehouse Is prac
tically finished now.

DUNLAP. la., Dec. .-(Special.) L'ntll
yesterday Thomas J. Jones sported as one
of the most progressive and wideawake
young men in Dunlap, and had tha entire
confidence of the people here. But It la
different now, for It developed last evening
that tho aforesaid Thomas J. Jones was
not all he represented. About six months
ago lie opened a music store here and se- ,
cured a loan on several pianos from one
of the banks, representing that his father-in-law
was very wenlthy, and would
shortly advance him 110,000 for his busi
ness. About three months ago he made a
sudden trip to Chicago and returned with
a wife, a very estimable young woman,
whom he had persuaded to elope with him,
It Is said. 'It was known that her family
connections were good, and that her grand
father was the president of an Illlnolu
bank. Jones succeeded In obtaining credit
In various amounts of the Dunlap business
men. It Is also alleged that he disposed of
one of the mortgaged pianos to a farmer.
While In Chicago in -search of a wife Jones
made a visit to the wholesale jewelry house
of Lapp & Florshem, and secured from
them on credit Jewelry to the amount of
$210, which he placed on sale In the Dun-lap-'
music house. This Jewelry he took
with him to Le Mars, where he has a store
of some kind. Larp & Flershem were no
