The trial of Pat Crowe, charged with
holding up and robbing the crew of two
street cars at the east end of tho bridge
on the night of Sunday. July . 1W6. was
begun In the district court at Council Bluffs
yesterday morning. The Jury was secured
by noon and after four witnesses had
been placed on the stand at the afternoon
session, the state waa compelled to as
for an adjournment until today, on account
of the failure of other witnesses to show
The following compose the Jury: George
T. MUler. J. N. Casady, Jr.. F. G. Knowlrs,
P. F. Pryden, M. C. O Donald. C. J. Stll
well, Forrest Smith and C. B. Howard.
With the exception of F. G. Knowles of
Lewis township and M. C. O' Donald of
Haaei Dell township, the members of the
Jury are residents of Counotl Bluff.
Owing to the personal Injury damage suit
of Mrs. Millie Kosky against the Nebraska
Telephone company having been specially
assigned for Monday morning, It waa ex
pected that the Crowe case would have to
go over until Tuesday, but the Kosky suit
was settled out of court and thus made
way for the trial of Crowe. Arthur Levi
was jointly Indicted with Crow, but they
elected to be tried separately and County
Attorney Hess decided to trr Crowe first.
Crowe Is being defended by Attorney 8. B.
The first wltnesa placed on the stand by
the state was John Raph, a conductor. Th
specific charge on which Crowe Is being
tried Is the holding up and robbing of Raph,
although Conductor William Matheson and
Motorman Henry Leuch were also victims
of the holdup. Motorman Welch, the other
member of the two train crews held up
managed to give the bandits the slip.
Coad actor Hot Certain.
Raph was tha conductor of the second
car. He told how his car came to a atop
by reason of th car ahead having been
atopped. He and his motorman, Leuch,
obeyed the order of the bandits to step
down off the car and were conducted Into
the brush alongside where they found
Matheson, who had already been relieved
of his money. The bandits took their
watches as well as their money, but later
returned th timepieces. Raph could not
Identify Crowe as one of the bandits be
cause the latter wore masks over their
The testimony of Conductor Matheson,
who followed Raph on the etand, was sub
stantially the same, except that he told
of hla car being brought to a atop by run
ning over something which In th dark
looked somewhat like the body of a man
or woman. Matheson and his motorman,
Ed Welch, got oft the car to Investigate
and found that It was a large gunny sack
filled with hay which had een placed on
the tracks While Investigating the bandits
fired over their heads and ordered them to
hold up their hands. Matheson obeyed,
but Motorman Welch took to hla heels and
e soaped In the darkness. Matheson said
he was robbed of 138.
R. G. Clover, an elderly man and a black
smith by trade, who resides In the western
part of the city, positively Identified Crowe
as befng the man he met with Levi at
John Crowe's aaloon on the night of the
holdup. Clover' a testimony waa to the effect
that he and a neighbor, George W. Shaffer,
had been to Omaha to aee th steamer start
up river. They walked back across the
bridge and at Shaffer's suggestion, seeing
a light In the rear of Crowe's saloon, went
to get a drink. Aa they entered the fenced
enclosure at the rear of tKe place a man
whom the witness Identified as Pat Crowe,
thrust a revolver under their noses and
asked them 1f they were looking for
trouble. Th witness said he answered
that they were not. that they were merely
looking for a drink. At this, the witness
said, the other man, who from his voice
he recognised as Levi, spoke up. saying:
"These men are all right; If a Clovar and
The man Identified by Clover aa Crowe
then lowered hla weapon and the witness
and his friend entered tha saloon and got
their drink. Clover testified that he eould
not be mistaken as to hla Identification of
Crowe, as he had seen him several times
during the two years preceding that.
Deputy Sheriff McCaifery testified to see
Ing Jim Callahan and two men resembling
Crowe and Levi going- weat on Avenue B,
near Twenty-alxth street, between 7:40 and
I o'clock on th evening of the holdup.
Callahan Is the man who was saM to hav
been Implicated with Crow In th kid
naping of young Ctidahy.
Following th testimony of Deputy Sher
iff McCaffery an adjournment waa taken
until thla morning.
Beach Warrant for Witness.
Mrs. Lillle C. Dai ton, on of th princi
pal witnesses for tha state who had been
subpoenaed, failed to appear and a bench
warrant waa Issued for her. At the time
of the hold-up she lived at 18 Eighth

WATER FRAHCHIIH IS sTBMITTED
Referred to Committee of too Whole

As had been announced It would the
Council Bluffa City Water Works company
submitted to ths city council last night
an ordinance granting It a franchise for
twenty-five years, Whll the provisions
of tha ordlnanc are based to a consid
erable extent upon ' th ordinance sub
mitted by the company In Peoember, 1906,
the ordinance Imposes a number of new
obligations upon the company In return
for the franchise.
One of the principal new obligations
Imposed upon the company Is that It shall
reinforce Its mains In the Implement dis
trict and that failure to do so within a
reasonable Mm will act to annul th char
ter. Other provisions require the company
to extend Its mains wherever ordered, pro
vided the city pay for one fire hydrant for
every (CO feet of main so laid, supply pipes
must be laid for consumers upon the or
der of the city council provided two ad
ditional bonaflde consumers are obtained
to every 100 feet of pipe so laid, and the
company shall from time to time take the
necessary measures to secure the purity
of th water aa shall be necessary for
the preservation of the ' public, health.
The ordinance provides for an extension
of the franchise for twenty ysara and gives
the city the right to purchase at any time.
The ordinance after being read was re
ferred to the committee of the whole with
The awarding of the contract for the
printing and binding of 280 copies of the
revised ordinances brought on the expected
contest over the union label. Councilman
Maloney took the position that despite the
fact that the New Nonpareil company, be
ing considerably higher In Its bid than
Alnsworth dt Woodford, should have the
contract because It waa a union shop. In
support of their position they cited an old
city ordinance requiring all city printing to
bear the union label. Mayor Macrae gave
It aa his opinion that that ordinance In
question waa unconstitutional aa being class
legislation. The amendment to give the
contract to the New Nonpareil company
failed to carry and the contract waa given
to Alnsworth St Woodford, Councllmen
Fleming. Hendrlx and Maloney voting
against It. Mr. Alnsworth In reply to Man
ager Bender of the New Nortparlel com
pany, who asserted that If the contract waa
given to Alnsworth Woodford, the work,
or at least two-thirds of It. would be done
out of town, assured the council that every
bit of th work would be done by Council
Pr. D. Hamilton, a resident of Oakland
avenue, asked that an Inspection be made
of the electric light tower on that atreet.
This brought on a protracted and some
what heated discussion of the towera.
Councilman Maloney precipitated matters
by auggesttng the hiring of an expert to
examine all the towera. Thla was opposed
by Counollman Wallace, who called at
tention to the faot that City Electrician
Bradley had given It as hla opinion that
the towers were unsafe. Judging from the
condition of the one recently dismantled

(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
PES MOINRS, May JO.-(Spolai.-Th
supreme court today refused to aay
whether or not It I Illegal for an assessor
to return ths names of the children In the
state Institutions as children of school
age on which the school fund should be
apportioned. The case was appealed from
Mills county whers parties living outside
of Glehwood complained because the chil
dren at the School fof the Feeble Minded
were enumerated aa children living Inside
the corporation of Olenwood and the ap
portionment of the school money on that
basis gave the district of Olenwood more
money than It was entitled to. A ault
waa brought In tha district court thera
to enjoin tha county auditor from making
the apportionment on that basis on th
allegation that Olenwood waa not en
titled to It. There waa a demurrer filed
and the district court sustained the de
murrer. The supreme court affirms thla
action of the district court without .passing
on the merits of tha controversy. Th
supreme court holds that the action to
enjoin the auditor la not the proper ac
tion. It claims that the law provides that
the assessors shall return the en urn era
Mon of the children Inside the district to
the county superintendent and" that th
auditor ahall make the apportionment of
money on that basis. The supreme court
holds that th auditor haa no discretion
In the matter and that his duty Is merely
a ministerial one and that auch an act
cannot be enjoined In tha courta.
The court today ruled on sixteen casea
on appeal and overruled nineteen pe
tltlona for rehearing that had been acted
upon at previous sittings of the court.
Among the rehearlnga overruled were
thoae of Lafe Toung, who was eued by
the state to recover an alleged overcharge
while Mr. Toung was atate binder. The
district court action resulted In Mr,
Toung'a favor and the supreme court over
ruled It and ordered a new trial. The ac
tion In overruling the petition for a re
hearing meana that the case muat now go
to the district court for a new trial.
The court overruled the motion for a
rehearing In the John Walker caae. Walker
was convicted of the murder of laaao
Flnkelstnln and on the first appeal got a
reversal and a new trial at which he was
again convicted. This conviction waa af'
firmed and the petition for a rehearing
now Is overruled, which exhausts the en
tire machinery of Justice and Walker
must now serve hla sentence.
The court affirmed the case of Emma
Smith et al, appellants against Lewis Ryan,
appealed from Fottawattamle oounty, be
Ing an action to have tha probate of a
wtll aet aside. The court reversed the case
relating to the listing of property by
Shields Brothers, appealed from Pottawat
