FILES FOURTEEN MORE INJUNCTION SUITS
R amors that Kamber ef Saloon Me
Have Pat ts tha Tweaty-Five-Dollar
Fee ai Coats
Made Their Ptaec,
Fourteen more saloon Injunction suits.
This was the record yesterday for J.
Brown, the mysterious stranger from Kan
sas, who la filling an engagement hi Council
Bluffs In the dual role of plaintiff and At
torney for plaintiff.
The fourteen original notices of Injunc
tion suits filed yesterday with Sheriff Can
ning by Mr. Brown are against H. - A.
Larson and Martin Jensen, the Manhattan
saloon and restaurant; Grand Hotel com
pany, E. W. Hart, mnnager; Earnhardt St
Klein, West Broadway; Fred Boekemper.
South Main street; F. J. Boyd, South Main
street; Mas Olsen. North Main, street;
Clausen St Poor, West Broadway; Ed
Muiphy, West Broadway 1 A. Boyaen and
8. Boys'en, Sixteenth avenue and Sixth
street; Alexander Dobson and Paulina Dob
son, Metropolitan hotel. West Broadway:
Pat Donohue, Broadway and Tenth street,
and E. H. Elllnger, Broadway.
With these the number of suits started
by Brown to restrain the sale of liquor In
saloons and other places now amounts to
fifty-eight There are still about ten sa
loons In the city, besides several la the
county, awaiting the attention of the en:
sader from Kansas.
The Iowa mulct law provides for an at
torney fee of f?6 In each and every saloon
Injunction case, and it was stated yesterday
that some of the saloonmen on whom
Brown had served notice of suit had
grasped old Father Time by the forelock
and hastened to settle with Attorney J.
Brown on this basis, with something extra
for costs thrown In. The names of the
saloonmen alleged to have stepped up to
the captaln's,Aesk and settled could not be
learned yesterday. The attorney fees In
the suits already commenced by Brown
would, if all ' paid - In, amount to $1,460.
Brown Is still as much of an enigma to
the city and county authorities as the first
day be made his presence In Council Bluffs.

by the polio on suspicion of having stolen
a fur overcoat In Omaha. Walsh early
yesterday morning called, up police head
quarters over the telephone and compl lined
that his suitcase had been stolen. Shortly
after he telephoned again stating that he
had recovered "the suitcase, having found It
in possession of his partner, Martin. The
police, wjio had In the meantime Icoked into
the case, found that Martin had piwned a
fur-llned overccit for S3. The cost an
swered somewhat the description of one re
ported stolen In Omaha, so the police de
cided to arrest both Martin and Wafch. At
police headquarters Walsh claimed that the
coat belonged to htm, although Martin had
pawned it without his consent. Later In
the day Walsh was released, but the police
decided' to hold Martin for further investi
gation, as he was thought to answer the

, Roy Green, who is accounted by the
police of this city and of Omaha one nf
th'e smoothest sneak thieves in the country,
is behind the tbs,rs of the city Jail again.
He was picked up at the request of the
Omaha authorities, where It was thought
he was wanted for the theft of an overcoat.
It la now said that the Omaha police are
not at all certain that they want him.
When taken Into custody Green was
found to be wearing a nloe new overcoat,
which was identified as one of. two such
garments stolen from the store of the John
Beno company about a week ago. Since
his arrest the police have learned that
Green within the last week' sold another
overcoat to a man in this city. Green
denies stealing the overcoats, but In tho
light of his past record the police are In
clined to believe that he did, and are hold
ing him for investigation.
Green Is the fellow who made a sensa
tional escape from the Grand hotel last
summer after being caught prowling about
the corridors of the building.

Committee Favors Boys.
In the repnrt of the committee that visited
the Soldiers Orphans', home at Davenport
the committee recommends to the Board
of Control that it revoke its order against
the boys going swimming In the creek that
runs through the grounds. Last year a
boy was drowned In the creek, which was
the reason, for the board's order. The
board Is now asking for an appropriation

The State Board of Control Is called
down again In relation to an Incident at
the School for the Deaf at Council Bluffa
Some time ago the board discontinued the
department Of domestic science, or cooking
and sewing school, at the deaf school, and
the visiting committee has reported that
this was "extravagance In trying to be
economical." The report recommends that
this department be re-established as soon
as possible, so that the young women who
attend there may be able to learn some
thing that will assist them In earning a
living. The committee also recommends
that the manual training department be
placed in charge of some one competent to
handle IV in all Its details. The committee
also recommends that pupils who are
county charges be permitted to remain at
the school all the year. Appropriations ap
proved ate WJ.800.

Better food and care for the old soldiers
at the state home Is contemplated In a
bill which passed the senate unanimously.
This raises the per capita allowance from

to pensions aad the 175,000 a year from the
national government. Senator Eckles In
urging the bill stated that the homa is now
a good deal of a hospital, that better food
and care are necessary and that It is much
more expensive to operate the home with
most of the men old and Invalids than
formerly. There was no opposition to the
bill, but some effort to have the bill take
its regular course in the appropriations
