JAMES ANDERSON MURDERED
Custodian of Masoiio Tempi Found Deid
on Stair Laodiae.
NO CLUE TO THE PERPETRATOR OF CRIME
Only Wound On h Body Was Cat
ob Sec It Apparently Made by a
Sharp Knife So signs
James Anderson, custodian of the Masonic
temple, was found dead at 11 o'clock last
night on the landing at the head of the
stairs. All the circumstances surrounding
the affair point to murder, but the police
have been unable to obtain any clue to the
perpetrator. It la certain the crime was
committed not to exceed half an hour be
fore the body was found. Chambers' dan
cing class uses the large room on the upper
floor and tills was not dismissed until
10:30 and the body could not have been
where It was found at that time, as all
who came from the hall were compelled to
pass directly over where It lay.
The last seen of Anderson alive, so far
as can be ascertained, was about 10 o'clock.
At that hour he parted from Eywlnd Lung,
a traveling man from Chicago, a friend of
the deceased, with whom he had been
spending some time during the evening.
Anderson had been telling his friend of his
plans for visiting his former home In the
old country during the coming summer.
An examination of Anderson's bed In a
room In the temple building showed he had
gone to the room and laid down, ns the
Imprint of h4s body was distinctly visible
on the bed. The only plausible theory the
officers can advance is that Anderson heard
someone In the building, started out to
Investigate and met his death.
The body was found by a young man be
onglng to the dancing class, who came to
the building as ascertain if It had leen dis
missed, and stumbled over tho prostrate
form. Anderson was lying on his back,
his feet toward his room and his head
toward the stairs. Blood was oozing from
his ears and mouth and there was a cut
under his right Jaw. evidently Inflicted
with a sharp knife. There were a few spy.tR
of blood near where the body lay, but no
signs of a struggle were observed.
Xo t ine to Perpetrator.
So far aa the police have been able to
discover no one was seen about the build
ing or coming freni It between the time the
pupils of the dancing class left until the
body was found, and the officers are com
pletel yin the dark so far as any due to
the perpetrator of the crime Is concerned.
Anderson was single, 55 years' of age and
the only relative In this country, so far as
known. Is a brother In Salt Lake City, who
formerly resided In this city. He was
prominent In Masonic circles, being tyler
of the Masonic Uidge, and in addition to
being custodian of the Temple building had
the care of the paraphernalia of all the
Masonic bodies which met in the temple.
He was a Knight Templar and a member
of the Shrine..
Coroner Treynor was notified and ordered
the body taken to the Cutler undertaking
rooms, where an autopsy and Inquest will
be held today.
The murder, occurring as It did In the
heart of the city and In the manner In
which It did, caused great excitement. The
members of -the Masonic fraternity an
nounce that no effort will be spared to run
down and punish the murderer, and though
there Is at present no tangible clue on
which to work, it Is hoped that Investiga
tion will uncover some fact which will lead
to the Identification and arrest of the per

THOMAS PEACOC K BECOMES IXSAXE
Overwork on a Xew Invention the
Thomas Peacock, a machinist employed
by the Union Pacific and residing at 714
Perrln avenue, became mentally deranged
yesterday morning and, after a hearing be
fore the commissioners of Insanity, was or
dered committed to the state asylum at
Clarlnda, where he was taken bust evening
in enre of Deputy Sheriffs Wool man and
McCaffery. Mr. Peacock is 42 years of ago,
married and haa a family if several chil
Mr. Peacock's condition Is attributed to
overwork on a machinist's tool, which he
recently Invented and which those in a po
sltlon to know say will ultimately be used
In all railroad machine shops.
Yesterday morning Mr. Peacock went to
tho livery barn on East Br. ad way where
he keeps his horse and from there rodo to
tho police station on Bryant street. At po
llen headquarters he Inquired from Patrol
Driver Lorenzen how many dogs bad been
shot by the police, but rode away again
without waiting for an answvr. tnortiy
after word was sent to the police that a
man on horsebnek was riding amuck on
Broadway near the Methodist church. Cap
tain O'Neill went to the scene and found
Peacock riding up and down the sidewalk
chasing a dog. A number or children ana
other pedestrians narrowly escaped being
ridden over by the demented man. When
Captain O'Neill appeared Peacock dis
mounted and, handing the r'lns to the offi
cer, told the latter to get up nnd take a
tide, and at the same time Peacock started
south on First Btrer on a run. The offi
cer called to him to halt, otherwise ha w.ndd
shoot. This had the desired effort and Pea
cock retraced his steps. As he reached the
officer he struck him over the limbs with a
cane, and when Cnptain O'Neill attempted
to take hold of him struck him a swinging
blow In the mouth, badly cutting his lips.
After a short but decisive struggle, which
attracted a big crowd, Peacock was sub
dued and taken to polico headquarters.
From there he was taken to the sheriff's
office 1n the court house and later before
the commissioners on Insanity. Sheriff Can
ning is a personal friend of the demented
man and Mrs. Peacock, fearing when her
husband left the house that he was not In
his right mind, notified Mr. Canning to bo
on the lookout for her husband.
As an expert machinist Mr. Peacock stood
high In the eBtlmutlon of tho officials of the
t'nlon Pacific. A few years ago ho was
sent east by the railroad to supervise the
building of several large locomotives for
the Vnlon Pacific at the Baldwin works.
While thus employed he became temiiorartly
lnsine. supposedly from overwork, and he
was sent by the company to a Banltarium.
Mr. Peacock has not been working In the
shops since the first of the month. He
recently began to show signs of mental
derangement, attributed to his working
over his recent Invention, which he fancied
would bring him millions of dollars. The
recent order of Chief of Police Richmond
to have all stray canines shot appeared to
have made a deep impression on his mind,
as after his arrest and while on his way
I to the police station, ho made continuoujc
reference to It.

At the time or the accident Morehouse

The above resolution was unanimously

of the officers nnd members of the Street

This money had been promised to the city
to assist In defraying the cost of paving
West Broadway, but formal action was
deemed necessary and the meeting for this
purpose was held yesterday afternoon at
tho Commercial club rooms.
It Is figured that the cost of paving and
curbing Broadway from Twentieth street
to the approach to the motor company's
bridge will be about ITT.ono, of which the
abutting property can probably be assessed
for not to exceed 132,000. Tills will leave a
deficiency of $46,000 to be assumed by the
city. It Is expected to make up thle amounl

This will leave $7,000 which the city will
have to raise by other means. Councilman
Maloney of the special committee having
this matter In charge Is sanguine that this
amount can be raised. The transfer com
panies doing hauling between Council Bluffs
nnd Omaha have signified their willingness
to contribute and one yesterdny notified Mr.
Maloney that It would subscribe $20 and
possibly more. The brewing companies In
Omaha, which haul heavy loads between
the two cities, It Is expected, will bo glad
to assist, ns the paving of Broadway will
mean much to them. A liberal subscription
Is also looked for from the street railway
company, as the Improvement of the main
thoroughfare between the two cities un
doubtedly would materially Increase the
bridge tolls. In the event of the city council
passing and enforcing a wide tire ordinance,
there Is little doubt but that tho Board
of Supervisors would make a generous ap
propriation out of the county road fund
towards the paving of this thoroughfare, or
at least as much of the fund as Is lev. .J
wltnln the city.

Dispose of Womnn'a SniTrnsre.
The troublesome question of woman's
suffrage, which has been before the legis
lature during nenrly all the session, was
disposed of by an adverse vote In the senate
today, and It will be heard from no more
during this session. The resolution au
thorizing submission to the vote of the
people, making n change In tho constitu
tion, was presented by Galle of Cerro
Gordo, who read an address on the sub
ject. This was replied to by Glllllland, and
Jamison of Clarke and Jamieson of Page
spoke for the resolution. A large number
of women were present to hear the discus
sion, and some of them became angry over
the sharp discussion of the matter. The
resolution was defeated, 21 to 2d.
The committee on suppression of Intem
perance reported adversely on the bill to
forbid treating In saloons and also on the
bill to require the giving of notice where
a consent petition Is to be circulated. The
bill to appropriate $76,000 for a swine pa
vilion at the state fair was recommended.

by Stoekey to provide for warehouse re
ceipts and a general warehouse law, such

tion for uniformity of laws and desired by
bankers and others.

Saunders" Indeterminate sentence bill,
which was defeated In the laat legislature.
passed the senate today by a vote of 46 to
2 and was messaged over to the house. It
will come up there early next week and
Holmes of Kossuth, Joint author of the
bill with Saunders, believes the bill will
pass. Senator Saunders served on a com
mission which Investigated the question of
prison reform and the indeterminate sen
tence law and which reported at the ses
sion of tho Thirty-first general assembly.
The report of the committee, .which was
favorable, was turned down then. Its pas
sage today practically without opposition It
Is believed prophecies the passage of the
bill In the house.
Honse Crowds mil Through.
The house today killed the bill from the
senate providing for furnishing the Board

Soldiers' Bill Special Order.
The bill by McAllister providing for the
publication of a roster of Iowa soldiers,
which was reported for Indefinite postpone
ment, but upon which there was a minor
ity report, was today made a special order
for this afternoon at 2 o'clock, and was
taken up at that time and, cn motion of
Jones of Montgomery, was sent to a special
committee. The bill has been up at each
session of the legislature and has met re
peated defeats. McAllister of IJnn and Dow
of Franklin spoke for the bill and It is prob
able It will pass. The reason for sending It
to a special committee was because of de
fects In the tall. Governor Cummins has
drawn a new bill and this probably will be
reported as a substitute.
A referendum bill was offered In the house
today by Pierce, the democratic member
from Buena Vlata county. Thus one more
of the measures advocated by W. J. Bryan
when he addressed a Joint session of the
house and senate has been offered In a bill.
There U little likelihood that the bill will
pass this session, largely because It Is rec
ognized that the legislature will adjourn In
a couple of weeks and there Is not time
now to consider so Important a new meas
ure. A bill was Introduced by Sullivan to reg

TRAIN BOYS IN STEEL WORK
Bethlehem Mills to Teach 3,000 Yontha
the Secrets of Steel
Charles M. Schwab, head of the Bethle
hem Steel company and other organiza
tions, has evolved the scheme whereby
he hopes to train American boys to become
the world's greatest makers of steel In all
branches. He offers an opportunity for
3,000 boys to enter the great mills at Beth
lehem, Pa. If they will do as he says and
as he has done himself, he declares they
will be able not only to become mechanics,
but experts with a full knowledge of the
highest development of the Iron and steel
"The Bethlehem Steel company Intends
to compete with the world In all grades
of work from armor-plate and cannon to
the finest of tools, such as gauges that will
record the thousandth part of an Inch,"
said President Arch Johnston when asked
why the company was anxious to engage
so many apprentices. "In heavier work
America has n equal, but the German em
pire In the manufacture of the finer ar
ticle has no equal.
"The German superiority today Is duo to
the care of Emperor William, who has en
couraged manufacturers. He also has been
the greatest personality the world over In
the training of boys In technical schools.
Mr. Schwab, the principal owner of the
Bethlehem Steel works, has been a close
student, as well as a great admirer of the
German system. He has devised a plan
whereby we think the German method will
be Improved upon.
"If so many can be had, 3,0oo boys and
youths will be employed by the Bethlehem
8teel works to be transformed Into highly
trained, thoroughly skilled mechanics, ar
tisans and metal workers who will help
make this the leading steel plant on the
globe. Boys will get something for their
services and as they advance their wages
will Increase. Mr. Schwab has designed
money prizes and sets of tools for those
showing the greatest efficiency at gtven
"A great technical school will also be In
stituted In connection with our plant. The
courses both In the school and In the fac
tory will Include thorough Instruction In
the rudiments of each trade, leading up
through every detail until the apprentice
