expressed by State Senator C. G. Saunders,
who was called home yesterday on busi
ness, but who returned to Des Moines last
. Senator Baunder stated that In hla Opin

b passed. At present there are, he said,
some ten bills providing for a t-cnt rate

Mr. Saunders Is of the opinion that the
Indeterminate sentence bill stands a good
chance of passing at this session. He has
Introduced a bill providing for this and
has hopes that it will meet with a better
fate than the one he Introduced at the
last Session, which was defeated.
There are seven municipal bills Mr. Saun

to seven committees made up from th
general cltle and towns committe. A hear

with assaulting Motor Conductor Fred M.
Bishop on an Omaha car last Saturday
night. Leonard was discharged, the evi
dence showing he did not tak part In the
assault, while Jesse and Harvey James
wer each, fined $60 and costs.
Seven passengers on the car, who were
eye witnesses to the assault, testified for
the prosecution, but ther was a difference
of opinion among them as to which .ne,
James or Harvey struck the first blow.
Jesse James went on the stand and ap
peared . willing to take all the blame for
the assault, but the court was not Inclined
to see It that way.
The. trouble, . it appear, wa over a suit
case in the aisle of th car which seemed
to bother Jesse James and caused him to
use several cuss words. When Conductor
Bishop remonstrated against the use of
such language, Jess and li la brother,
Harvey. It was nald, sailed In and beat
the conductor In commenting .on the case
Judge Snyder said the assault amounted
to a riot and the assault on the conductor
was apparently without th slightest provo
cation. Jesse and Harvey James were unable to
pay th fines and wer committed to th
county Jail, their appeal bonds being
placed at $200 each. Bomar, who was ar
rested Saturday night after th assault,
but released on hi own reVognixance, be

After numerous postponements for one
lessen snd another, a hearing was hold
yesterday before a Jury In Justice Greene s
court In the case In which Anton Lund
gard, a tailor, was charged with the un
lawful use of the union label. The Jury,
composed, of F. C. Rlker, L. M. Shuliert.
Theodore Oulttar, William Schnorr. W. J.
Leverrtt and F. M. Williams, after a few
minutes' deliberation, found that Lund
gard was not guilty.
Th Case had attracted more thnn or
dinary attention from the fact that It was
the first of the kind to be brought In this
city. Lurwlgnrd made a suit of clothe
for C. Banther, manager of th New the
ater, snd when Banther later sent the
suit to another tailor to have some altera
tions made, the union label was found
attnehed to the clothes. Knowing that the
suit emanated from th shop of Lundgard,
who was not a member of the tailor's union,
the tailor to whom the clothes were sent
for alteration brourht th matter before
the union, with th result that a complaint
was filed several months ago against Lund
gard. Lundgard denied knowledge of the fact
that the union label had been attached
to the suit and It developed that the tailor
In Limdgard's employ who worked on the
suit was a member of the union, and It
was alleged that he was responsible for at
taching the union labol. Assistant County
Attorney Ross conducted the esse for the
state, while Lundgard was defended by
City Solicitor Kimball.
