the murder was committed. He appealed
to the supremo court and the court was

action of the lower court and three for re

court In Its Instruction, to the Jury. The
supreme court being evenly divided, ac
cording to th. Iowa law, the action of the
district court was affirmed. The execution
of Busse was set for April 20 and his at

Those opposed to the proposed 6-cent faro
take the position that as things ar. . the
man or woman employed In Omaha has the
advsntage of a 6-cent fare through the
coupon books and that this ought to suf
fice. Some business men even go so far
as to say that they wished the far. be
tween th. two cities was 26 cents, as if
this was the case much of th. Council
Bluffs trade which now goes across th.
liver would probably stay at home. Others,
however, say they do not believe a 6-cent
fare would affect th. local retail trade
one way or the other.
Real estate men, as might naturally b.
expected, favor th. proposed 6-cent fare,
believing that It would tend to build up
this city, especially the western part of It.
The agitation for th. straight 6-cent fare,
which was started by the West End Im

tions and appears to be of such general
Interest that It Is expected the meeting
