Kleholson Gets Damages.
Charles M. Nicholson, chief of the Council
Bluffs fire department, received a verdict
for t900 yesterday from the federal court
Jury, before which his 15,000 personal Injury
damage suit against the Citizens' Oas and
Electrlo company was tried. I
Chief Nicholson and his driver, Marlon
Stevens, while responding to a fire alarm,
were .thrown from their buggy on South
First stret by coming in contact with a
mound of dirt left on the street by the
light company and which was unprotected
by danger lights. The mound of dirt was
on the opposite side of the street from an
open trench and the evidence showed that
while the trench was marked with danger
lights the mound was not so protected.
Marlon Stevens, Chief Nicholson's driver,
brought suit for $1,000 damages In the dis
trict court, where he secured a verdict of
$1,026 against the company. Chief NlchoU
son's suit, on account of tha amount of
damages sought to be recovered, was trans
ferred by the defendant company from the
district to the United States court.
Another round In tha Manawa fence liti
gation was had In the federal court yes
terday, the demurrer to the cross petition
of the street railway company In the suit
brought to enjoin Chrlsman & Robards and
othtr property owners at Manawa from
Interfering with the Board of Supervisors
In the matter of vacating the streets re
quested by the motor company. This suit
was the outcome of tha case brought
originally by Cbrlsman and Robards and
tha other property owners at Manawa In
the superior court and In which Judge Scott
Issued an Injunotlon restraining tha super
visors from vacating the thoroughfares In
controversy. Tha street railway company
Intervened as a nonresident and took the
caae Into the federal court, where Judge
McPherson set aside Judge Scott's re
straining order and enjoined the plaintiffs
from Interfering with the supervisors. As
is now a matter of history, the supervisors
weal ahead and vacated tha streets asked
by the street railway company and then
another suit was brought by A.. O. Gil
bert and others who were not In the
original proceedings In the superior court,
and Judge Scott issued an order nullifying
the action of tha supervisors. This last
suit Is now pending on appeal to the su
preme court, the decision of which will.
It is expected, finally dispose of the con
troversy. Judge McPherson took the mat
ter under advisement.

Many Oo to Ames to tec Work of
AMES, la., Sept. a. (Special.) Seldom
has It been the privilege of tha cltlsens
of Ames and of the faculty and students
of the Iowa State college to entertain such
a crowd as has been here today on ac
count of the annual harvest home excur
sion. Tne weather was perfeot and no
one stayed away for fear of rain. This
custom of setting aside on or two days
during the autumn months to bring to
gether the people of tha state that they
may see tha educational advantages held
out to young men and young women ha.
met with universal favor and each yea;
brings additional numbers. For a time
only one day was given over to this cele
bration, but as time has gone on and tha
tidings carried horns by those that came
and saw what the state Is really doing for
those educationally Inclined it has finally
become Impossible for the town and the
departments at tha college to accommo
date tha visitors all at one time, hence
two days are being devoted to these an
nual gatherings. As had been anticipated
by those In charge of the arrangements the
largest crowd that has ever been on tha
college campus have thronged the buildings
today. Today the Northwestern ran spe
cial trains over Its lines throughout the
state, aa previously announced. Special
trains from east, west, north and south
commenced to arrive early In the day,
bearing as enthusiastic a lot of people as
is often seen. The regular trains that ar
rived early in the day brought a large
number, but tha crowds brought ou these
proved to be insignificant compared with
the hundreds that came In on tha spe
cials. Every available vehicle was pressed'
into service to transport them to the col
lege. The motor line proved Inadequate
for the occasion and hundreds becoming Im
patient to get ,to their destination started
afoot and lined the Northwestern and motor
tracks the entire distance. Ample prepara
tion for feeding the visitors had been made
by different societies of the town and the
athlettc council at the college. Tomorrow
the Great Western and the Milwaukee
roads will run special trains over their
lines which will warrant a crowd almost, If
not quite, as large as that today. Aa these
lines have never taken an active part In
these excursions a large portion of the
state will be reached which has not here
tofore had an opportunity to visit the ool
lege. Class Fight at Ames.
AMES, la.. Sept M. (Special.) A class
scrap was indulged In last night between
the sophomore and freshmen classes of the
Iowa State colleT. and as a result several
students were quite seriously Injured. The
trouble started early In the day when the
sophomores made threats of kidnaping tha
freshman president and persisted In post
Ing the figures .09 In conspicuous places.
A large number of them during the day
purchased overalls and large quantities of
rubber hose which they carried concealed
In the legs of their trousers. In the even
Ing a bitter spirit had been engendered and
a large number from the two classes armed
themselves with barrel staves. In a fierce
battle between the two factions four of
their numbers wers knocked insensible and
it was feared that their skulls had re
ceived permanent Injury. They were taken
to the hospital where they were properly
cared for. A number of others received
minor injuries. When the president of the
college and the faculty were apprised ot
the seriousness of the trouble they Im
mediately took ateps to put a stop to It and
In a few words exhorted them to be en.
gaged In doing something more elevating.
It Is thought that no further trouble will
ensue. This Is tha first class scrap in
dulged tn here for a number of years.

Is disclosed that Japan made peace at
