MURPHY CLAIM CUT THIRTEEN HUNDRED
John Berae.helm Allowed Lamp Sam

Which a Amoant af tha
Judge Green yesterday dUeosed of the
matter of tha compensation of John Ber
helm and L. F. Murphy, receivers of the
Officer A Fusey bank, which has b?cn hang.
Ins; nra since January. 1906. The roceivers
were appointed Beptember 17, lo. a few
days after' the death of Thomas Officer,
enlor member of the firm, which pre
cipltated the crush of the bank, supposed
to ba one of the soundest financial Institu
tion In the state of Iowa.
In his original application for compensa
tion 'Receiver Murphy asked that he be al
lowed $2, a year for the first four years
and S1.0O0 for 1906, making I11.2U0 In all. Mr.
Berenhelm asked to be s Mowed a lump sum j
vi w,uu'. All or tne clerical' work of the
receivership devolved upon Mr, Murphy.
The amounts asked for by the receivers
were resisted by Attorney J. J. Stewart,
representing some of the largest creditors
of the defunct bank. The hearing was then
postponed at the suggestion of tfr. Stew,
art And It wao not until yesterday that the
matter finally camo up for disposal.
The amount asked .by. Receiver. Peres
helm was allowed In full but tha court
made a reduction In the claim of deceiver
Murphy. He allowed him $2,400 a year for
the first two years, $1,800 for the next two
years, 11,100 for 1H and KWO for 190. making
a total of 110,800. From this Is to ba de
ducted S5.200, which Mr. Murphy has al
ready drawn on account.
At the time tha bank went Into the hands
of tha receivers Its liabilities were sched
uled at K124.456, with assets of $506,879. As
was expected a considerable portion of the
assets proved of little or no value and
Together with the proceeds of the estate'
of Thomas Officer the creditors of the de
funct banking firm have 'received divi
dends amounting to C2tt per cent of their
claims and Receiver Murphy announced
yesterday thst It was likely another divi
dend of Z per cent would be paid In the
near future, making a total of 65 per cent
which the creditors will have realised. .
The receivers have on hand 111, 117. 67 and
there is $3,000 In Chicago. In addition to
this It Is understood that Attorney Stewart,
administrator of the estate of Thomas Of
ficer, has some funds on hand and from
these two sources the last dividend of 3ft
per sent, will be paid. .
In the divorce .suit of Carrie M, Bmlth
s gainst Fred C. Bmlth, Judge Green yester
day handed down his decision awarding
the decree of divorce to the husband on bis
erosa petition and taxing the costs against
the wife. The court also decreed that the
title to the property, which is at present
In the wife' name, should be 1n the hus
band. The trouble -between the Smiths
culminated in the divorce court after Mrs.
Bmlth had shot her husband In the thigh
with a revolver; the wound confining- him '

MAYOR HOIAOi IP A PROWLER
Supposed BnrRlnr Prove to tie Colored
Man In Search of His Wife.
At 1 o'clock Friday morning pedestrians
on Fifth avenue could have witnessed
Mayor Macrae perambulating around his
residence with bare feet and clad only In
a nightgown. At that hour the mayor
was aroused from his dreams of municipal
ownership of the water works by the watch
dog barking. His honor at once suspected
that burglars were In the neighborhood
and he started to Investigate without wait
ing to put on any apparel. Glancing around
the porch he noticed a man hiding in the
Shadow of the house. He went for him
and the fellow started to run.
"Stop and hold up your hands, or I'll
fill you full of buckshot.' yelled the chief
executive of the city, but the fellow only
ran the faster and disappeared around the
alley. - ,
The mayor returned to the house and. s
curing his revolver, but still neglecting to
don any apparel over his nightgown, again
sallied forth aftor the supposed burglar
Creeping cautiously around the house Dr.
Macrae ran pulump against the fellow, who
proved to be a strapping big negro.
"Hold up your hands, or I'll shoot you
on me spot," ordered tne mayor and up
went the negro's hands. -
Just as the mayor had the fellow backed
up against the wall, a window overhead
was raised and a voice exclaimed, "Don't
hurt Mr.'. Johnson, Massa Don, I knows
him well." It was the voice of the mayor's
family colored cook, Marie, a recent ar
rival from sunny Tennessee. N
Explanations followed and - It developed
that "Mr. Johnson," who la a waiter on a
dining car, had been to dancing school
with his -wife and Mario and trouble had
enlued between him and his wife. "Mr.
Johnson" supposed his . wife had oome
across the river and was spending the
night with Marie.' When assured by the
mayor that bis wife was not In his house
Mr. Johnson said he would go home, and
he retired after the mayor had given Mm
a little advice about not prowling around
other people's houses at that hour In the
Thinking It a good Idea to hasten the fel
low's footsteps a little. Mayor Macrae de
elded to send a couple of shots after him
In the air. He pulled the trigger and to
his surprise found that every chamber In1
the revolver was empty. . ;
"I would have been In a nice fix If tho
fellow had been a real burglar," .said the
mayor, while reciting his experience to

Contends He ierved Poor Days After
- Term Expired.
The Board of Supervisors had before It
yesterday a claim of L. G. Conslgny, the
retiring county treasurer, for $53.7tJ for sal
ary for January 4, 8, and T of this year.
The claim was based on the contention (hat
he had served the county those days In
excess of his term. The claim was referred
to the county attorney, who gave It as his
opinion that Mr. Conslgny's term ended on
January 7, at the time the new treasurer,
J. W. Mitchell, was Inducted Into office.
The board rejected the claim end It Is
understood that Mr, Conslgny will take
the question Into the courts.
O. J. McManus, the retiring county super
intendent of schools, has also filed a similar
claim for seven days salary on the ground
that his term expired January 1. This
claim has, however, not been brought be
fore the board, but it was stated yesterday
that It would meet the same fate as that
of Mr. Conslgny.
This matter was up before the board
when R. V. Innes retired from the office of
county auditor. At that time the claim
was referred to the county attorney, but
a compromise was effected without the
question being brought to an Issue.
The county was divided Into the following

Striving; for Positions.'
The senate caucus tomorrow afternoon
at 8 o'clock will settle the question of po
sitions so far as the thirty-second general
assembly is concerned. It is generally con
ceded that the appointment of committees
both houses has been concluded and.
hough there are some disappointed ones,
for the most part there has been less ex
citement over the question of committee
positions than at former sessions. Neither
fhe speaker nor Lieutenant Governor Garst
will announce their committee appoint
ments till they have been Installed In office.
6peaker Kendall will probably give his out
Monday or Tuesday. Garst will not
announce his till Thursday or Friday.

bers, hag been wanting the position of
Chairman of agriculture. Sullivan of Polk
wanted insurance. Both were told that
those committees would go to old mem-
bers. In the senate Eeklcs will probably
get agriculture. There
was a move to
give It to Croseley, but opposition arose
to Crossley. Friends of Senator Newberry
want him to have the position.
Senator Dan Turner is confident of the
election of his candidate, Cass, as en
grossing clerk In the senate. He has
wenty-one senators pledged to vote for
Cass, and nineteen elect in the caucus.
Miss Lois Rigby, who has held the po-
itlon, Is meeting opposition because tho
Scott county senator this year Is a demo
crat. MUs Hutchison, a committee clerk
at the last session, seemed to have an
Inside track for a time, but Cass today
developed strength. Joe Toulouse Is here
after a position. Toulouse was prominent
n the late campaign. He would like to be
Journal clerk. C. F. Dusey of Creston la
here and asking for a senate position. Mr.
Pusey has evolved a scheme for keeping

benefit of the members of both houses.

ing the Charles City lynching: "I want to
most heartily commend Judge Kelly of
Charles City for his prompt and vigorous

guilty parties. No object lesson could be
more wholeeome at this time than the
action of Judge Kelly,"
While Governor Cummins ia unwilling at
this time to discuss his possible action in
the matter. It is understood that if Judge
