JAIL DELIVERY FRUSTRATED
Prisoners EemoTed to Penitentiary Too Soon
to Allow Them to Work Scheme.
LEAVE KNIFE AND PARTIALLY FINISHED SAW
Wilson and Murphy Leave a letter to
the Jailor Alone with the Tools
Feeling; Good Over Getting
Off with One Year.
The removal of John Wilson and Jack
Murphy to the penitentiary at Fort Madl
Friday, It Is believed, frustrated a
carefully laid plan to break out of the
county Jail. Yesterday morning In making
his usual rounds of the cells and corridor
Jailer Gallup found a letter addressed to
him In which was Inclosed a case knlfa
and a steel watch spring. The steel spring
had been nearly transformed Into a saw
capable of cutting through any of the bars
guarding the Jail window.
The letter, . which Jailer Oallup declined
to show, covered two sheets of paper, writ
ten In a schoolboy hand and evidently with
much labor on the part of the writer. It
was signed by Murphy and Wilson and
closed with a short doggerel verse In which
the writer evidently thought that one year
In the penitentiary was letting htm and
his companion off pretty easy. How the
prisoners secured possession of the case
knife and steel spring is unknown to the
Juiler, but from the fact that the spring
had almost been converted Into a saw In
dicates that the prisoners undoubtedly In
tended attempting to saw their way out of
Jail. On two previous occasions prisoners
hove succeeded in making their escape
from the county Jail In this manner.
Wilson and Murphy, who were sent to
the pen.tentlary nt Fort Madison for one
year each, were convicted on their own
pleas of guilty, of steeling a quantity of
tools belonging to H. F. Keller from a
building in course of construction at the
corner of Fifth avenue and Seventeenth
street. They were arrested In Omaha while
trying to dispose of the stolen goods.
Both Wilson and Murphy are well known
crooks, the former being known In police
records as "Chicago Slim" and the latter
as "Boston Blacky." A thorough exam
ination of the Jail showed that no attempt
had been made to saw any of the window
HEM'ISG OUT THE WEAK CHlUCltES
Baptist Aaaorlatlou i.lkely to Employ
How to devise ways and means to
strengthen the weaker churches in the dis
trict was the principal question discussed
at yesterday's sessions of the Southwestern
Baptist association. There are nine churches
in the district which have no pastors, and
in several thriving towns there are no
churches even. A plan which seemed to
meet with much favor was for the church
to employ a missionary evangelist who
would be able to visit any place in the dis
trict when called upon, and by his pres
ence and work stimulate the congregation
to increased activity and Interest In the
church. The opinion of those who partici
pated In the discussion was that the mem
bership of the churches now without pas
tors could be encouraged with some slight
assistance to extend calls for pastors to
hold regular services.
' The principal talks on this question were
made at the evening session by Rev. A. H
Beaver of Glenwood, Rev. W. I. Cole of
Hamburg and Rev. W. J. Soarks of Shen
andoah. Nothing definite was decided upon,
but It Is probable that the association will
take steps to employ a missionary evangel
ist for the district.
The morning session was devoted to "Ed
ucational Work" and the nfternoon to
"Woman's Work." At the afternoon ses
sion Mrs. C. AV. Miller of Ottumwa, state
secretary of the Woman's Foreign Mis
sionary society, delivered an address on
"Voices from the Field," while Miss Gus

Rev. H. R. Waldo of Malvern will preach
a doctrinal sermon, while in the evening
the sermon will be preached by Rev. J.

Omaha. At the evening service Rev. J. W.

"I was well pleased with the progress
of the work on the Carnegie library build

to the Board of Trustees of the public

Iowa Dairymen Make an Enviable
Record in the Competition at the
St. Loots Exposition Homes
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Sep'.. a4.tSpeclal.) There
Is more activity and life about the repub
lican state headquarters for Iowa than in
the western subcommittee quarters at Chi
ca0, from which point the Important cam
paigns in Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, Colo
rado. Missouri and other states will be
directed. This fact was discovered when
Chairman Spence and others went into Chi
cago thlB week to talk over matters there.
It Is here In Des Moines that the best work
is being done for the committee and for
the party. Iowa is already well organized
and the campaign fairly started. It Is true
that only a tew have got Into the fight yet,
but others are being drawn in and the
work Is well In hand. The greatest danger
now Is that all the good speakers from
Iowa will bo drafted for other states. There
is a wondetful demand for the best of the
Iowa speakers. For instance, Governor
Cummins has Just received a pressing invi
tation from Senator Dick, chairman of the
Ohio and Indiana -state committees, In
which he Is urged to go to Ohio and assist
especially In gome of the congressional dis
tricts of that state. There are districts
where the democrats are threatening to
make Inroads on the score of the tariff and
the Ohio people feel that there Is nobody
like Governor Cummins to help them out
of a bad box. In Indiana the same condi
tion prevails. Governor Durbln, on behalf
of the Indiana committees, has been urg
ing that Governor Cummins come to that
state and speak in the districts where the
democrats are making strong claims. The
situation Is represented to have become bad
In that state. Senator Fairbanks has
helped It out a little by his letter of ac
ceptance, In which he shows himself to be
progressive and In line with the sentiment
of the rank and file on living questions,
but there is a call for help in Indiana. As
Governor Cummins has engagements in
Kansas, Illinois and Minnesota it is not
certain he can go further east.
Senator Dolllvcr has been drafted by the
national committee for the long trip with
Fairbanks through the west. Dolllver
Joined Fairbanks In Chicago last night and
opened with him at La Crosse today. They
will remain together on the long Journey
Of 4,795 miles Into the west and out again
and to Omaha, where Dolllver will leave
the party. He may be diverted Into Colo
rado for a few speeches by himself. Con
gressmn Cousins Is to Join the Fairbanks
party at North Platte on the morning of
October 10 and accompany him to Chicago.
The Iowa committee has a partial prom
ise of a Sate for Secretary Taft at Burling
ton about October 25. The western branch
of the national committee Is desirous of
placing him there. He is to be out fn Kan
sas about that time. The state committee
has the promise of some other good speak
ers fcr the campaign In Iowa also, but who
they are Is not yet known.
The state committee will begin In a few
days making dates for a large list of pood
speakers. This will include !oth the sena
tors and all the candidates for congress.
There la not a candidate for congress but
that will be available and net one but that
en make an excellent speech. Albert F.
Dawson Is the only one who will confine
himself strictly to his own district and
