CAREER OF DR. W. W. OHDWAV
Physician Wbo Was Robbed at Los
Asielei a Resident of Onana.
ONAWA. la., Sept. 17 (Special.)
Dr. William W. Ordway who Is
mentioned in yesterday's Los An
geles. Cal . dispatches as being rob-
bonds and his house set afire, has been a
resident of Monona county since l&jS, but
ias spent considerable time In Los Angeles
the past four years. He was one of the
pioneers of the Maple Valley and is known
all over western Iowa for more than forty
years, he was a practicing physician, and
traveled over seventy-five miles of country'.
He was also engaged In loaning money and
did more business than many banks of the
present day. He was rich, when he came
here and entered over l,2uu acres of land
at the C. B's. land office. He has been
robbed many times. When he first came
to the country In '55, he was robbed of
$3,000 in old, but the money was found
hidden In a tree and recovered. Dr. Ord
way was a noted character and always
had business at every term of court. For
many years he has owned more Improved
farms than any manln Monona county and
is considered the richest man. his fortune
being placed at inoo.ono to JSrtP.Oivi.
About tmenty years ago he was attacked
at his home on the Maple, shot in the head
and Jaw with a double barrelled shotgun
and nearly killed. Notwithstanding all this,
he grappled with the robber and put up a
pluiky fight. The-robbers escaped in the
darkness, but was afterwards found guilty
in the district court and sentenced to
twelve years In the Anamosa penitentiary.
The doctor is now 75 years old, but still
keen In the scent of a dollar.
the company by the Iowa authorities, a
matter refused two weeks ago.
This decision on the part of the com
pany will effectually settle the larger part
of the trouble. When the officials of the
company were compelled to give up their
positions last spring and other men were
selected by the state officials of Minnesota
and Iowa, It was because of persistent
efforts and demands on the part of the
officers of the company that the holders
of policies In the absorbed company ac
cept policies in the present company. This
did not suit many of the stockholders and
policyholders in this state and the result
was that continual friction existed between
residents of the state of Iowa and the
Judge Bmlth McPherson handed down
his decision In the case of the restraining
order of the Iowa policyholders oalnt
the company, holding that while the com
pany could take little action they would
be allowed to accept the payment of dues.
This lrt for the purpose of protecting the
After the decision Judge McPherson takes
occasion to review the misnomers of some
of the funds of the insurance companies,
stating that the real fight between the
two forces is between the company and
the persistent policyholders, those men
that do not allow their policies to lapse
and thus Increase the earning possibilities
of the officials.
Murder Still Mystery.
The manner of the murder of George
Griswold is still a mystery, one of the
deepest that ever confronted the pollco
and detectives of the city. Further exam
inaiion 01 tne remains incline the au
thorities to believe that the body was kept
twwty-four hours after death before it
was thrown Into the water. Not a clue
has been found at this time that would
give a clue to his assailants.
ino oniy inmg mat points to a cer
tain class Is that at the time the remains
were found the denizens of the under
world of the city knew that an Insurance
man was missing. They also knew' nearly
the place In the city the man lived.
Just after the remains were taken from
the river some one of the negroes and
loafers who Infest that part of the city
told the newspaper men at the scene that
an Insurance man was missjng. The man
who gave this Information was not held,
and the police will have to round up the
dozen men at the point to get the right
one. but the fact that he gave the busi
ness and the location of the man's home
is taken as evidence that some man was
present at the time the remains were
' taken from the water that knew some
thing of the murder. No one had been
notified of the disappearance of Griswold
and no Insurance man had been missed
from the large number In the city.
The only possible clues to the assailants
the man are a satchel and a Uih
pocketbook. These have not been found
but he carried the satchel at the time he
iert tne Munger hotel to go to the train.
Don't Like Crop Report.
The report of Hon. John Cownle con
cerning the corn crop of the state is creat

desperate efforts to make It appear that

fact that the report was only on what the

with good seed, has not reached the men
at this time.
Cownle made no charges that the pres

In the history of the state, but he In

THK HISTORY OF CHAMPAGNE No. t.
ARLY VINTAGERS cf the ChampaeTie district of
France noticed the tenuency ot weir wines to
effervesce. It remained for Dom Fengnon, a Monk
of St Peter's Abbey, llautviilcrs.to discover, about
ir.70. how to control this effervescence,
t,-. nreerv the oualitv as desired, until ht
obtained the rarest, most delicate of all
The fame of French Champagnes, pU9
$S.OO duty, doubling the price, makes some
people think them worth more tnan
In reph. we only ask that yau try Great Western.
Creal Western Champagne actually has the fine
flavor and rare boquet found In french Champapne.
This Is due lo the long cultivation of Great Western
Vlneyards-the oldest In New York State. These soils
have actually attained the chemical condition which
Imparts that quality hitherto found only In foreign goods.
Try Great Western equal to foreign
Champagnes, at half the price.
