The gang of safe blowers which has.
been operating in this city and across the
riv;r, turned another trick Friday night
ln this city, the scene of their operations
being the grocery and clothing store of
Frank Peterson St. Company ln the Dan
ish hall building at the corner of Broad
way and Park avenue. The safe was
blown, the cracksmen securing $41.26 from
it and between $8 and $9 from the cash reg
ister, the drawer of whic.i they broke
The store Is situated on the ground floor
of the building, the Danish hall In whtcn
the convention of the Dunlsh Brotherhood
was being held above. The entrnnc to the
hall is by a stairway from Park avenue
on the east side of the building, and It
wss by cutting out a part of one of the
steps of this stairway that the burglars
secured entrance to the store beneath. The
lock on the outer door to this stairway
was forced with "a chisel, the marks of
the tool being plain in the woodwork.
Ones Inside the stairway the Intruders
were , safe from observation.
The safe, a small affair, stood behind
the cashier's deek In the center of the
store. Thla the burglars turned over on
Its side and then bored two holes In the
bottom ln which they placed the explosive,
supposed to' have been giant powder. To
deaden the sound of the explosion the
rracksmen piled a quantity of overcoats
iind othr clothing from the clothing sec
tion of the store on the safe.
The money drawer taken from the safe
waa found, rifled of Its contents, with the
exception of one check and soma papers.
In tha lot at the rear of the furniture
store of the Keller & Farnsworth com
pany, one block west.
Jacob Lundhy, who has charge of the
meat department In the store, was the
first to enter the building yesterday morn
ing. Whfii he opened the front door he
was slmost stifled by the thick smoke
which filled the room. The fact that the
room waa full of smoke leads to the be
lief that giant powder was used Instead
Although the Ogden hotel is opposite the
building on the east side and the Neu
mayer hotel across the street on Broad
way, as far ss could be learned no -oiv;
heard the explosion In either placet. Cap
tain Schafer of the night police detail

while at Fifth avenue and Seventh street.

Autopsy tKont It to Have Been liar
of Heart Disease.
W. B. Bayless. on elderly farmer, living j
near Castenit, Monona county, Iowa, was
found dead In IJ bed yesterday tnortiln
at the Goodrich hotel, on Broadway and
Eighth atreet. It was at first thought his
death was due to an overdose of chloral,
as It was known he was In the (nihil of
using the drug to induce sleep, but an ,
autopsy performed by Coroner Treynor de
veloped the fact that the man's death was
due to an affection of the heart.
Mr. Bayless came to Council Bluffs Tues-
day to attend to a real estate deal he hud
pending with D. J. Hutchinson & Co., and
which was to have been closed yesterday i
morning. He stopped each night at the
Goodrich hotel and registered there as
Usual Friday night, retiring to bed early
and leaving a call for 7:30. Martin Wells,
the night clerk, went to awaken him at the
i hour named, but could not arouse him. Mr.
Well, however, mi spec ted nothing, and
decided to make another effort later to
D. J. Hutchinson, the real estate denier
with whom Mr. Bayless was doing busi
ness, called at the hotel for him, and it
was then discovered that the man waa
dead. Friday evening, while talking with
Mr. Hutchinson, Mr. Baylesa had shown
the former a
mall bottle containing
c,,,orl- 'xpiatntng m ne nau to ta.ee me
this bottle among hla effects led to the con
clusion at first that he had taken an over
dose and that It had caused his death. This
was, how.ever, disproved by the autopsy.
Coroner Treynor ordered the body re
moved to Cutler's undertaking rooms, but
decided that an Inquest waa unnecessary.
The wife arrived here last night and will
accompany the body home today.

LODGE RESISTS DEATH CLAIM
Sooth Dakota Workmen Go Into
Personal History of a Former
8IOUX FALLS. 8. D.. Oct. 13.-(8peiial.)
While In Sioux Falls. T. Simmon, grand
master workman of th Ancient Order of
United Workmen of South Dakota, officially
announced that the grand lodge would re
sist payment of th death claim 'of John
Hoffman, who died ln Sioux Falls In th
spring of 1904.
Since hla death It has been learned that
Hoffman was over the sge limit ' of so
years when he applied for admission to th
lodge. But tha most startling revelations
were In connection with hi matrimonial
affairs. Th grsnd lodge officer discovered
that he had another wife living at soma
point In Nebraska.
It wsa further discovered that Hoffman
was not ths true nam of the deceased
member. Th mstter drifted along until
th recent annual meeting of the grand
lodge of the order. It was thought that
possibly th grand lodge would order pay
ment rather than have the collection of th
policy taken Into the courts. But no action
was taken, and recently the beneficiary of
th policy, th second wife of Hoffman,
placed the matter In th hands of attor
neys, with Instructions to commence an
action In th courts.
Th grand lodge master workman state
that th grand lodge I morally bound to
resist payment of th amount of the policy,
as th'er Is. In ths opinion of th grand
lodge officers, sufficient svldenc of fraud,
and that In any event. If the policy was
paid, the money should ga to ths heir or
heirs of Hoffman's first wife, tb krted

NERVE SAVED HIS LIFE
How a Penitentiary Warden Kscape.l
by Keeplna Cool lu Presence
Karly on a certain morning many y.urs
ago the wnrden of n penitentiary, an el
derly, gray bearded man, was st work Ht
his dejk. On a sudden he .heard n panther
like tread in the room and ho divined a
presence behind him that would lave ni.ide
a less fearless man faint away.
The presence was Unit of one Patrick
Burns, a desperado, who va doing life
service for murder. This man held an
ugly-looking dirk In his hand. The wunicn
Knew he was alone with the most dangerous
prisoner in the penitentiary.
Pretending Ignorance of Burns' proxim
ity, the warden went on with his writing
as If the criminal were not In existence.
But his brain, remote from the papers that
lay on the desk before him, whs calculating
with the swiftness and the accuracy pe
culiar to brains when the owner of them
are In danger of their lives.
First of all, the warden wondered how
Burns had managed to slip past the guards
snd how he hsd come Into possession of
the long, ugly dirk. Then he reflected that
the murderer had grown gray In the prison, .
that he knew all the Ins and outs of it,
and that he had been studying nights and
days year, after year how he could ac
complish this very feat.
in the little drawer Just over the warden's
gray head.! In easy reach of his hand, his
revolver was locked. To secure it would
mean his salvation, to be Hcen making the
attempt wuuld cost him his life.
There were four or live guards ln rang
of his voice, hut had he spoken shove a
whisper to mmimon one of them the dirk
would have) severed him from existence.
He wrote on, as if undisturbed, his heart
thumping, 'his hand steady.
"Mr. Warden, It's me that's here." said
Burns, finally, "and it's mighty cool, you
are about It."
"1 know you're there." replied the war
den, coolly. , "Why did you tome?"
"1 come beiauhe I'm tired of this. Imln't
going to stand It no lunger."
"No; I'm not. I've been In here twenty
years, nnd that's enough for any man. I'd
rather be dead than stay longer. I've had
enough. I'm going to kill you and get out."
"How long did you say you'd been here'?"
"Twenty years." The man's e yes blinked.
"It's a cool way you have of facing death,
Mr. Warden. But I've had enough of this.
I'm going to leave Ihls hell hole. 1 don t
know that I've got anything sg'ln you par
ticularly, but I'm going to got out, do you
hear?" He raised the dirk.
"What do you mean by getting out.
Burns? Don't you know that you couldn't
get a yard beyond the wall before the bcii
tlnels filled you full of bullets?" The war
den, Hparrlng for time, turned his ken
gray eyes toward the little drawer that
held his revolver.
"I'll take chances. It's enough I've had
of it and I'm going to run chances and g l
out of here, alive or head."
"Well, I wouldn't get excited about til s,
Bums; let's talk II over coolly." '
"I don't want to talk It over."
"Don't you think 'you're fi.olisli. Burn?
You've been serving a long time. ourii.

"Well, Mr. Warden, I-" '"'
Burns faced the barrel of a revolver,
aimed by the surest of hands. ' The wardin
wss on his feet.' "If you love that knife
an inch to the right or the left you drop.
Now turn and march to your cell."
"I ain't goln' back. 1 said I wss going t.i
get out of here, 'alive or dead, vnd ,I'iu
going to keep my wordT
"I'll have to shoot, then." ' ' . .
"You kin shoot." He wstchrd the ward' n '
unflinchingly, the knife lightened In his
grasp. He was waiting a propitious a ennd
to drive its blade home. '
"You're a fool. Burns," raid the warden,
"to ruin your chances of a pardon." '
"Do you promise mo n pardon If"
"I don't promise anything. I simply i,y
that if you go back nnd behave' yours I"
I'll see what can bo done."
The prlfsiner reflected a second. "Bi't I
ssld I was going to do this, and it's iiiigliu
me to death they will be if Income hack. I
don't want them to know I lost my tvrvr."
"Go back, Burns; nobody but you and niu
will know about it."
"Very well, then."
He dropped his dirk on 'the flunr en I
