LIBRARY OF ONE BD0K ALSO MISSING Action In Looking; tp His Kansas Record Thought to Have Some thing? to Do With His Forsak ing Ills Isnat Hannts. Where Is J. Brown, the saloon crusader from Kansas, who appears as both plaintiff and attorney for plaintiff In the half hun dred or more Injunction suits begun against wet goods emporiums In Council Bluffs and the smaller towns In Pottawattamie county? parties occupying rooms In the same build ing state that Mr. Brown has not been seen In his office since last Wednesday and thnt his office has remained locked since then. Daily papers which It la supposed Mr. Brown subscribed for to learn how the people and saloon men, especially of Coun cil Bluffs, were taking his crusade, com menced accumulating In front of his office door last Thursday morning. Mr. Brown's law 'library, consisting of a copy of the code of Iowa, haa disappeared and the supply of cordwood which formerly could be seen In the corner of tho office near the small stove has apparently been exhausted. Mr. Brown's record previous to coming to this city Is balng Investigated by the authorities, and It l thought possible that this may account for his absence from the city. This much has been learned by the authorities, that Mr. Brown came here from Cuba. Kan., and If the Information in the hands of tho authorities Is correct Mr. Brown is not an attorney, not having been admitted to the bar. While tho authori ties are not willing at this time to disclose what they have ascertained rcgnrdlng Mr. Brown, it Is admitted that what they have learned Is not In Mr. Brown's favor. Borne of the saloon men who, It Is stated, settled" with Mr. Erown, either with him In person or through nn Intermediary In the person of a member of the local bar. are now said to be of the opinion that per haps they had better have waited and not been In such a hurry to "step up to the captain's desk" and pay out their hard, cold cash in return for a promise of im munity from further prosecution.

The city council last night turned down hnrd a motion of Councilman Hendilx, member of the special water works com mittee, that W. Kiersted, the expert en gineer employed by the city be further employed to return to Council Bluffs und confer with Mr. Alvord, the expert en gineer representing the water works, with a view If possible of reconciling the dif ferences in their respective valuations of the water works plant. The city council, assisted by Mayor Macrae after a tie vote had been an nounced, decided to stand pat on Mr. Kler sted's report as to tho value of the plant, by adopting the following resolution Intro duced by Councilman Wallace, chairman of the special water works committee, not on behalf of his committee, but acting as cn Individual member of the council: Resolved. By the city council of Council Bluffs that It bo the sens" of the council that the special water committee acting for this botly, shall In Its negotiations with the Council Bluffs City Walt rwoi ks com pany consider the value of the water plant owned by said company to be not In ex cels of the valuation placed upon said plant by our consulting enpineer and ex pert. W. Kiersted. namely, $50i!,94R. This resolution was introduced by Coun cilman Wallace In advance of the reading by him of the letter written him and Man ager Hart of the water works company by Mr. Kiersted In wnlch the latter announced his willingness, If nuthorlzed by the city council, to come to Council Bluffs and go over their respective reports with Mr. Al vord. The discussion precipitated by the resolution occupied the greater part of the session ana at times was anything but harmonious. All of the councllmen took part In tho discussion, although Councilman Wallace had the floor the greater part of tho time. In offering his resolution Councilman Wallace Insisted thnt th? council shr.uld stand pat en Mr. Klersted's report and vuluatlon and should throw the burden of I proof that the valuation was not fair. on the water works company. Referring to the valuation placed on the plant by Mr. Al vord, the expert employed by the water works company. Councilman Wallace de clared with considerable wnrmth and em phasis that the report was a "palpable fraud." He further declared that Mr. Al vord had not made any of the computa tions or measurements himself and that It "would be perfectly ridiculous to have Mr. Kiersted come here to raise his own fig urea." Later during the discussion George S. Wright, attorney for the water works crm pany, took exception to Councilman Wal lace's assertion that Mr. Alvord's report was a "palpable fraud," and Manager Hart called the attention cf the councilman from the Third wurd to the fact that both Mr. Kiersted and Mr. Alvord made their com putations from the measurements made by Enalneer Kiersted. Employed by City, Explains Ilia Position. Despite the assertions made by certain persons to the contrary, W.

"And now Kansas haa made Charlie a United States senator! Well, well, well." Churlea J. Ross, sketch writer and co median, dropped the newspaper he had been reading In his dressing room in a Kansas City theater. Silently, carefully, he combed his hair hair that Is almost white then put on a light summer suit and straw hat and moved in front of a mirror. The reflection waa that of "a gay old man," hla part In the play. He ap peared to be in a reverie as he stood for a moment before the mirror. "Curtis, you mean?" queried his visitor. "You know him?" "Know him?" replied Ross, smiling. "Why, years ago that little black-haired Indian boy and I rode the ponies together at tho tracks In Kansas and Missouri. Yes, we were fellow Jockey. Then Ross sat down, leaned far back in his chair, and told about it. "Let's see. It must have been in 1874 yes, that's right, for I'm 48 years old that I escaped from that Institution In Chicago and came to Kansas City. Never mind about the Institution Just a place where boys are taught manners and how to walk In the 'straight and narrow path.' "I got to Kansas City somehow and started to work. I 'blacked' shoes, sold papers-anythlng to make a little money. Then I got a Job of candy 'butcher on the 'plug' that ran from here to Topeka. "One day after I had been on the run several weeks I left the train at Topeka and went to a county fair there. I missed the 'plug on the return trip and didn't have nerve enough to ask for my Job again. So I went back to the fair grounds and hung around the stables where the rucing horses were kept. That's where I met Charlie Curtis. Senator Curtis, I suppose I should call him now. "Charlie waa about my age 16 years. He was a Jockey. I only weighed about 105 and Charlie got me a Job of riding the last few days of the fair. In the winter I went to work In a little frame hotel in North Topeka a 'bell hop.' I don't remember positively, but I think Charlie Curtis worked there with me part of the time Anyway, he and I went out the next summer with a string or racers owned by Newton Douglas of Topeka. We made all the county fairs In' eastern Kansas and western Missouri, including Kansas City. We traveled In wagons. "My laat ride for a long time was In Cameron Junction, Mo. I rode a horse that no other Jockey would ride and afterward I didn't blame them. That fool horse took me through a nicket fen. then turned around and kicked me while I lay on the ground! I didn't get over that accident in a hurry. 'That was the brrinnlna- of mv - quaintance with Charlie Curtls-the little niack-naired fellow and he was a rather good Jockey, too. Oh, yes; I've seen him many times since. I visited him often In Washington when he was a congressman." Ross paused a moment. Then. "And he's a United States senator." Roes Is a Canadian. A few veers after the accident In Cameron Junction, Mo., he began racing BKatn. This time he rode In the fixed races of P. T. Barnum'a circus Then he became assistant trainer, confi dential secretary and track representative of George Irlllard, the famous turfman. While in the employ of Lorlllard he In troduced the messenger system, allowing women to place bets. "I could always dance and sing." said Ross. "That's how I happened to light on the stage. I went to New York after leaving the ponies and I had no trouble getting a Job In a vaudeville show." Kansas City Times. Liberals Hold teat. LONDON.
