In which you criticise my anions as chief
executive of this city, especially In where
1 have exercised the right of pardon given

be. where a man is convicted simply for
being drunk and sentenced to ten. twenty
or thirty days In Jail, and he can convince
me that he will go to work or leave the
city, and there Is no other charge against
him. he will be pardoned by me after I

Is the best thing to do. In a few cases
where parties hMil been in Jail before and
those Interceding In their behalf brought

where they Absolutely agreed to leave t lie

where the man and wife had trouble and
the wife appeared egttlnst him, which re
sulted in conviction, and then In two or
three days she repented and needed her
husband's help to support herself and fam
ily, and she came In person and asked for
his release, and I felt certain that he
would change his ways, 1 pardoned him.
and ho on down the line. The class of peo
ple I pardon are not the men that hold tip
and rob and murder. Those cases are en
tirely out of my Jurisdiction and go to the
official of the county. To give my par
dons it fair and honest test Is to check over
the. names of those pardoned and see how
many have been in Jail the second time. I
aiways warn those pardoned if caught
again they will stay there.
Now. Mr. I'reacher. did vou ever slot) to
think how much It would cost this city to
feed these people? This money comes out
of the pockets of the taxpayers. I don't
know whether you pay any taxes or not.
Are you In favor, as a minister of the
gospel, In keeping some poor devil In Jnll j

taken a little too much - liquor, Ihat he
shall remain In a crowded Jail, where most
of the time from eight to ten men ate
crowded Into one small cell, on account of
the limited condition or our Jails, and auffer
for from ten to thirty days? in many cases
families are dependent upon the support
of these men; others have good positions
they might lose.
I 1 ave recommended and urged, during
my short tenn In office, that we provide
more room In our jail. I'p to now nothing
Iihs been done, largely On account of lack
of funds. How much of an Investigation
have you made as to the kind of people I
have pardoned? I will venture to say that
you have never even looked over the
records. I know you have never had the
fairness to mention the matter to nie. I
will further venture to say that you have
never stuck your head Into either Jail or
the police station, and yet yon. sir, preach
it nermon to a great congregation) CTitlcU
ing me without evert a Hingis Investigation.
I stand ready to meet you or any other
man and defend my .action aa,V chief
executive of this city any place on. earth.
In conclusion, permit me to say that no
man will go farther than t will to punish
a criminal. I stand ready to do this at any
time. Your truly.
Family, Fritidi tad Elsbaucb. Still
Adhsrs to Murdtr Theory.
Relatives Relax So Fffort In Their
Determination to Ferret tint
the Mystery of Bny'e
However conclusive the deductions of the
sheriff's office may be (list Herbert O.
Burke came to his death by the accidental
falling from a cinder car at Florence a
week at') Sunday night, the family of
young Burke. John Steel and County At
torney Slabaugh are still of the opinion
that Burke was murdered and laid whore
he was found. Some recent developments
give color to the theory ofmurder.
New rumors and vague clues are coming
to the front at Intervals, the last one being
that young Burke wa heard to say that
he was going to Florence the Sunday even
ing of his death to secure settlement for .1
cow that had been bought there hy the
Burke firm. This story, while In the miun
true, referred to a transaction of two or
more weeks previous to his death and the
cow- had been settled for and the transac
tion closed.
"Kipert" Want Reward Flrat.
Saturday last a couple 6f men clnlinlng
to be detectives approached Mr. Steel wlt'.i
a proposition to unearth the murder of
young Burke If they were advanced some
preliminary funds. They professed to be
expert In the line of ferreting out
mysterious murders and while not claim
ing to have any clues, intimated they were
In a position to get hold of some valuable
Information.' Mr. Steel told them he could
not advance any money, but that the large
reward for any Information leading to the
upiirehenslon of the murderer or murderers
still held good.
Possibly the most significant fact con
nected with young Burke's death and
which lias Just come to light is that the
night watchman at the Minne Lusa pump
ing station passed directly over the
ground where Burke's body lay between
7:30 and 8 o'clock that Sunday night nnd
did not see any body. Had the body been
lying there then he could not have avoided
seeing it. The Inference naturally fol
lows that the body must either have been
laid or fallen there after the watchman
had made his rounds. It Is now definitely
determined that the violence which
resulted In young Burke's death must havo
happened at 7:10 o'clock Sunday night, as
that Is the hour his watch stopped. This
watchman stated further' that on that
same night and at that hour, there were
three or four ash cars on the switch that
runs between the pump house and tha
cinder dumping platform which young
Burke must have gone completely around
to reach the dumping' platform from
which It la alleged he fell to death.

The Burke family will not relax any
efforts to solve the mystery of Herbert
Burke's death. A member handed the

at. the Boyd theater this evening for a
single performance of "On the Quiet," a
comedy of the type Collier has made so
successful. He Is returning from a tour
the antipodes, where he wa very huccess
ful. and Is accompanied by a company of
players especially selected by Charles
Frohman for the Australian trip.
. Walker Whiteside this season haa a play
that tells a definite modern story In a
human way, and has been doing very well
with It. It Is called "The Magic Melody,"
and tells of the love of a German musician
for the daughter of a multi-millionaire.
Home startling complications are Intro
duced In the action of the drama, but all
are natural and plausible, and work out In
a reasonable way. Miss Wulstan is sup

company Is back of them. Mr. Whiteside
begins his engagement at the Boyd on
Thursday evening and stays the 'rest of
the week, with a matinee on Saturday afternoon.

has soen -tlie first real rift In the
cloud of gloom which has been hovering
civrr the toot ball Kridlron since the open
ing day of the present season. The silver
lining has appeared on account fit several
things, but principally liecouse Rockwood.
for two seasons a tower ot strength at
right guard, and Jack Streff one of the
best ends in the state, have finally decbl"d
to play with the tam this year. I'rged
on by the necessities of the situation,
botli men have decided that, desolte' tin
fact that they are In their senior years
in the colleges of law and medicine, re
spectively, tmj tesni Is In sore need of
their services and that they would re

the middle, of the week.
fresco White, the big end who has b"en
laid up for ten days with a bad ankle,
and Chick Kirk, who has been following
the side line for the same reason for
four days, have returned to the gome. But
the greatest surprise for Iowa rooters this
year Is the moving of Morrey Kent from
his new position at left, halfback to' his old
position at qusrter. This change haa given
rise to a great deal of speculation as to
the man who is eventually slated to fill
Andy Chalmers' old place In case Knt
is kept at quartet-back. Collins has been
tried out there and there are several o'her
men who have been- sulwtltutlnp In the
back field, but-it Is confidently intimated
that Jack Streff will be moved Into the
back field, where hla speed should be a big
factor In the ground gaining ability of the
back field.
Rockwood may possibly line up In a new
position this yenr. 'a Iowa's weakness in
one. tackle demands a man of Rockwood'
treat strength. Knowltan ' han been play
ing a remarkably strong game on his to
siijnn, and with the return of Cresco White
to tlie game It is practically certain that
the end positions will go to them. The
guards are a' yet nnselected and the

who will play Hie- positions. Elliot lias

Nebraska haa a hard game on Its hands
for Saturday, when the Ames team from
tho Iowa Agricultural college, will be the
opponents. The Iowa college opens its
doors a month earlier than most institu
tions of learning and the members of the
team have Just that much advantage in
preparation for the games which are to
follow. The consequence Is the teams that
have to meet Ames early In the season are
at an immense disadvantage and are often
vanquished, although later In the season
they may have the better team of the two.
Ames has shown up well this year and on
this showing the rooter are banking on a
victory next Saturday.

an uncertain quantity and no game is aut-

not surprised when Jerome M 11 gee won the
