JUNES APPEALS TO COURT
ecurei' Temporary BeitraJninc Order
Against fire and Police Communion,
HiARING ON THE CAStl NEXT SATURDAY
Alleges He la the l.eaal Chief of Fire
Drpartmeat and Farther that
Mrholaon, Iloard'n Arpolatee,
Aa had been anticipated, the controversy
over the appdntment by the newly cte-
bted Fire and Police commission of Charles
M. Niiholson as chief of the fire depait
nicnt over the head. of R. W. Jones, tho
pirent houd of the cJepartnient, ha
reached the courts. Judge Wheeler yes
terday in district court Issued on the ap
plication of Chief Jonea a temporary in
junction restraining the members of the
Fire and Police commission and Charle
M. Nicholson "from In any way Interfer
Ing with the said plaintiff In the discharge
cf his duties aa chief of the fire depart
ment of Council Bluffs and from In any
way attempting to take from the plaintiff
the possession of the property of the said
fire department and the said Charles Nich
olson from attempting to act os chief of
sold fire department until the further order
of the court in tua premises." -
The hearing on the application for a
temporary Injunction won set for Satur
day, April :7. by Judge Wheeler. This
order. It Is taken, win act as an eatoppel
to the city council approving, even If it de
sired to do ao, the bond of Nlchrdson. which
has already been filed with the city clerk.
In the petition filed yesterday by counsel
for Chief Jones. aCter .reciting the facts
of his election by the city council to the
position of chief of the fire department
at the regular mnntlng In April, 190ft. "from
date or until his successor Is elected and
qualMled," it Is alloged that the Fire and
Pi lice commission acted without authority
or warrant of law In appointing Charles
M. Nicholson chief of the fire department
while the plnintlff was the duly qualified
and acting chief of tho department.
The petition further recites that at the
time of' the making of the appointment
Charles Nicholson wns not a member of
the fire department, nor had ho been sub
mitted to any examination na required by
law, nor had the examination of the said
Nicholson been held, by the said Board of
Fire and Police commissioner, and that
at the tlmo of the making of such ap
pointment. Charles Nicholson was not
eligible to appointment as chief of the
The petition also recltea that Nicholson
has filed a bond in the sum of S2.O0O and
that the same will be submitted to the
city council at Its meeting next Monday
night, for approval, and that In the event
said 'bond is approved, It Is the intention
of the Fire and Police commission to in
sist and demand that the plaintiff sur
render to Charles Nicholson all of the
property and control of the fire depart
ment. State Senator C. O. Saunders, who has
been retained fea counsel ' bit' Fire Chief
Jonen and who helped to pass the law
tindor which the Fire and Police commis
sion of thin city la supposed to be acting,
contends- that Jonea la not only chief of
the fire department, but that the members
of. the commission have laid . themselves
liable to prosecution foy violation of the
law. He said "Every member of the com
mission Is liable to prosecution for viola
tion, and if convicted, T, a fine of J100 or
thirty days In Jail. The law requires that
they name the chief of the Are department
from the department Itself, but they havt
seen fit to appoint a man from the outside.
They have also violated their own ruli
fixing the age limit for admission to the
fire depnrtnient at 40 years."
Mr. Saunders Also has serious doubts If
the commission was legally appointed as
the law providea that two of its members
ahall be named, "aa far as practicable,"
from the dominant party at the preceding
municipal election. The republican party
dominated the last city election, but Mayor
Macrae deemed It fit to appoint two demo
crats on the commission, while there were
several hundred republicans ready and will
ing' to serve.

the city before the bank cloned Its doors
because of an apprehension that the con
dition of the bank waa not good. There

PRINTER STRIKES RICH GOLD
Important Discovery of Immense Vela
of Free Mllllna Ore Nenr
Rorhford, 8. D.
RAPID CITT, S. D.. April 20.-(Speclal.)
One of the most Important discoveries of
gold-bearing ore In tha southern Black
Hills haa recently been made on what Is .
known aa the Crown Lode In Hornblende
Mining district, seven miles west of Roch
ford. In Pennington county, A large vein
of red stained rock forty feet In width
exposed on the surface for a distance of
four hundred feet in length, and cut by
Castle creek at a depth of one hundred
and fifty feet, has been found to be noth
ing less than an Immense vein of free
milling gold ore. The above results have
been obtained from actual measurements
and thorough sampling made upsn the
vein by competent and experienced mining
A cross-cut recently run for eighteen
feet across from the foot-wall, at a point
about 140 feet from the top of the bill,
disclosed to view ore of great richness,
much of it panning free gold, and esti
mated by experienced and disinterested
miners to carry from 810 to 820 per ton, be
sides the concentrates, while the balance
of the vein, twenty-two feet In width, to
the east, pans from 85 to 810.
The vein has every appearance of a true
fissure, with a gouge on the foot-wall
from six to eighteen Inches In v thickness.
The material Is largely quarts, heavily
mineralised with arsenical pyrlte In con
nection with the gold. Large dykes of
dlorlte and trachyte cut the formation In
the vicinity, while porphyry la known to
exist a short distance to the north. No
other veins of this character have ever
been discovered In the district, and thla
may lead to the examination of ledges of
a similar appearance, which have hereto
fore been considered barren and ronae.
quently overlooked, and to the discovery of
large and valuable We bodies. The ore
body on the Crown Lode Is so situated
that at least G0,0"0 tons ran be readily
mined by an open cut like a atone quarry,
before any shaft or tunnel would be
needed. Castle creek, flowing at least 1,000
miners' Inches of water the year round,
cuts the ledge 100 feet deep on the lode.
The fortunate locater of this valuable
deposit la James D. McNIckle of Rochford,
8. D, an old time printer, who is oer
talnly to be congratulated upon the dis
covery made, which haa every indication
of proving of Inestimable value, not only
to the Hornblende dlatrict, but to the en
tire Southern Hills.
