The city yesterday came out victor In
the second suit brought to wrest' from It
part of the land comprising Lake View
park around Big lake In the northern part
of the city.. In the suit brought by J. P.
Oreenshields against R. C. Howell and the
city of Council Bluffs. Judge Macy yester
day granted the plaintiff a foreclosure on
tha lots owned by Howell, but denied the
claim of the plaintiff to the strip of land
forming part of Lake View park.- which
It was claimed by Oretnshlelds belonged
to the Howell lots by accretion or re
liction. In finding for the city Judge Macy held
that the evidence failed to show that the
land claimed was formed by slow and Im
perceptible action of natural forces, as
distinguished from artificial means, and
that the character of the land In question
was not sch as to make it a part of the
It Is stated that an appeal will be taken

FAINTTKG BERTHA COMES BACK
Allowed Her Freedom on Promise to
. Leave the City.
"Tee, I will Indeed be rood If you will
let me go to my mother In Omaha," pleaded
Bertha Libbecke yesterday afternoon.
"Please don't send me back to the hospi
tal. Anyone can aee I am not craiy." Once
again tha young woman with the fainting-"
proclivities succeeded In winning over
tha authorities and she was allowed to go
her way on condition that she left Coun
When Bertha snade her escape Thursday
afternoon from St. Bernard's hospital,
where she . had been placed pending the
hearing of her appeal from the action of
tha local commissioners in adjudging her
Insane and ordering her committed to the
state asylum for the insane at Clarinda,
little or no effort was made to recapture
her. All that the authorities desired was
that she keep away from the city, as they
did not wish to be burdened with her.
Fate, however, prompted Bertha to re
turn to Council Bluffs yesterday morning
and Officer Smith spied the young woman
as sho waa' In the act of regaling herself
with a melon In a Broadway grocery, pre
paratory to doing one of her fainting
stunts and relieving the proprleter of the
store of hla valuables. The officer took
her Into custody and escorted her to the
city Jail, where she was- permitted to
roam at. large until It was decided what
should be done with her.
The county authorities apparently were
not over-anslous to receive her; the sisters
in charge of St. Bernard's were glad to
be rid of her, so Chief Richmond, after a
conference with Bertha's attorney. H. J.
Chambers, and the young woman herself,
decided to release her on her promise to
at once cross the river to Omaha.
When Bertha escaped from the hospital
Thursday afternoon by locking the sister
In charge In her room, It ta said, she was
practically penniless. When taken Into
custody yesterday she not only had several
silver dollars In her pocketbook, but dis
played a roll of blUs. She had on a new
picture hat, white ailk shirt-waist and
bla:k silk skirt and presented k very dif
ferent appearance from her condition when
brought over by the Omaha police a few
weeks age, after she bad spent some time
in the Douglas county Jail.
Bertha appeared to be much struck with
the appearance of James Nichols, the
handsome sergeant at police headquarters,
and felt somewhat offended when the offi
cer declined her Invitation to psrtake as
her guest of a champagne luncheon at a
well known Broadway restaurant.. Ser
geant Nichols pleaded the excuse of a
prior engagement. .
- Abaadaa One School.
At a special meeting of the Board of Ed
ucation yesterday arternoon it was decided
to close tha Ounn school and transport the
pnpils at tha expense of the district to the
Pierce street school.
Thera were fourteen pupils at the Ounn
school, which Is located on East Broad
way and they were under one teacher,
Miss Hoffman. These fourteen pupils were
divided Into seven grades, which made It
very Inconvenient for the teacher and gave
tha Individual pupil but a few hours'
schooling each day. By transferring the
pupils to the Pierce street school and as
signing them to the grades to which they
belong: each pupil will secure a full day's
schooling each day.
Not only will the change provide better
facilities for the pupils, but the district will
be benefited financially, aa It la estimated
that a aavlng of at least 1300 a year will
be made by the new 'arrangement. The
children will be transported to and from
Pierce street school dally Jn a carryall at
the expense q the district.
This makes the third small outlying
school in tha district to be closed and the
pupils transferred' to lafger buildings'. The
other schools so closed were the Woodbury
avenue and the Clark i 'hool, located near
Oram's packing hause.
Milk Dealers Say Kat Gallty.
A. C Ellsworth snd George Sherer, two
of tha three local dairy owners charged
with selling adulterated milk, entered pleas
of not guilty in tha superior court yester
day morning and the 'further hearing: of
their cases was continued until Monday.
Mrs. Sophia Leonard, tha third dealer
charged with a similar offense, haa not
yet been railed Into court.
The attorneys for Ellsworth and Sherer
declared their , ability to prove that the
milk sold by the defendants waa not adul
terated and that thera was no formalde
hyde In It-snd If thara waa tha qnantlty
used was an undoubted benefit to tha con
sumer. Prof. Crowley, who made tha
analysis of the samples of milk, has been
subpoenaed to testify In court Monday.

morrow and he will be released from Fort

his brother will be waiting for him and
take him to Marshall county to a farm
Sherrllffe Is a cripple- since his last esca
pade and would not be able to do any
running. He was originally committed
September 22, 1833. then paroled by Gov
ernor Shaw November 28. 1900, and sent
back by Governor Cummins in Febru
ary. Governor Cummins also provided
that the "good time" earned by convicts
prior to parole should be revoked along
with the unexpired term, and If this had
prevailed Shercllffe would yet serve two or
three years, but the supreme court decided
the "good time" could not be revoked.
Has Sot Violated Law.
Chairman Spence of the republican state
committee denies that he has violated the
law In the matter of soliciting funds for
the campaign from Iowa people holding
official positions In Washington. A sensa
tional dispatch from Washington Btates
that he has done so. "There is no viola
tion of law," he declared, "fh writing let
ters to men asking them to help the cause
along. Attorney .General Olney decided,
and I have his decision here, that the law
only prevents persons entering a building
and personally soliciting from officeholders.
We have asked the Iowa people living In
Washington and holding official positions to
contribute to the campaign, but it is not
In violation of the civil service law."

Judge Ladd of the siupreme court Issued
an injunction restraining the sheriff of
Boon.; county and the district court from
proceeding against the. city officials of
Boone for contempt In refusing to draw

cided the warrants must be drSVn and had
ordered the tame by mandamus. The city
officials claim an appeal was taken to th
supreme eourtpendlng a decision of which
the officials are prevented now from fining
the dlty authorities for contempt.
