Scott and other directors of the Council
Bluffs Fish and Game Protective associa
tion against tha Interstate Amusement com
pany, the street railway company and th
Lake Manawa management transferred to
the United States court.
Counsel for the defense admitted that if
the action waa merely to enforce the po
lice regulations of the state the jurisdiction
was In tho district court, but the petitioners
had raised another point by alleging that
the Interstate Amusement company was
formed within the Omaha & Council Bluffs
Street Railway company as a means by
which the street railway company could
avoid liability; that this inner corporation
was a fraud, and counsel contended that
this was a cause of action to be determined
in the United States court, as the atreet
railway company waa a nonresident cor
poration. Judge Wheeler took the position that the
allegations referred to by counsel for the
defense should not enter into the case

It has developed that there was a hitch
In the settlement of the controversy be-
tween J- Hollenbeck, the house mover,
an1 the telephone companies as to the re-
"val of wires and cable, to permit Hol-
lenbeck to remove part of the old Woman's
Christian association hospital at Sixth avo-
nue and Ninth street. Yesterday City
Solicitor Kimball, acting under the lnstruo-
ttons of the city council, brought man
dam us proceedings In the district court to
compel Hollenbeck to remove the house oft
the street and the Independent and
Nebraska Telephone companies to tempo
rarily remove their cables and wires to
permit him to do ao.
After citing the fact that the ordinances
granting the two telephone companies their
franchises requires that they remove their
cables, wires and posts when necessary to
permit the moving of buildings, etc., upon
twenty-four hours' notice, the petition asks
the court to order Hollenbeck to remove
the building off the public streets and to
determine the direction of the route which
it shall be necessary to move the house
over; to Issue an order of mandamus re
quiring the telephone companies to remove
their wires and cables along the line of
the route found necessary by the court.

Congressman Hull Going Out Over His
District Looking Over Political
Fences Primary Law
Make It Necessary.
(From a Staff. Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. June 19. (Special.) Tills
city Is In a state bordering on hysteria be
cause of the election to take place Thurs
day on the question of the adoption of a
commission (form of government to super
sede the executtve-legislatlve-Judlclal form.
Every effort has been made by all Inter
est to fight the question to a finish. The
opponents of the plan have money gotten
from some aource with which thoy are
fighting the Idea. The proponents of the
commission plan have plenty of money, for
the business Interests of the city generally
are for the plan and they have shelled out
liberally. An assessment of 85 was made
on each of the committee of 800 which Is
conducting the campaign for the bill. This
raised 81.600 which, however, does not begin
to pay the expenses. Business men, many
of them, have given 8100 donations and
many even larger amounts. No general or
state election has excited greater Interest
In De Moines than haa this election.
Following the efforts of Alderman Ham
ery yesterday to prove that the city coun
cil waa attempting to steal the election and
defeat the plan by" manipulation of th
registration books there are complaints to
day that the city clerk has refused or
failed to deliver to the election Judges all
th books and supplies belonging to them.
It is claimed that the poll book for the
third precinct of the Fourth ward is miss
ing entirely and there are allegations that
it has been stolen by the opponents of the
commission plan. Today the Civic League
met and voted a reward of 8600 for the ar
rest and conviction of persons guilty of
election frauds and the committee of 800
covered it with a reward of the same
amount for the same purpose.
Congressman Hull has thus far refused
to openly declare his stand in the matter
and maintains that it Is not necessary for
him to take a stand as his Interests are not
Involved. However, by maneuvers of the
business men who are advocating the
change he has been placed In the attitude
of opposing the commission plan. Con
gressman Hull today Issued a statement
through the Dally Capital to the effect that
he did not consider It as his place to at
tempt to Influence the election by stating
his position in the matter.
Suit Over Hotel Bill.
City Clerk Poorman today sent a circular
letter to the clerks and Judges of election
ordering them to make the corrections In
the registration books, the letter being sent
on the order of the city council. Not con
tent with this the Civic League, through
Its president, I. B. Tone, brought a manda
mua proceeding In the district court to se
cure an order compelling the city officials
to correct th lists. The proceedings were
held at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Klnsr Edward's Horses.
Horses raised by King Edward will be
exhibited this year at the. Iowa state fair.
The horses were brought over lsst year and
were shown at the exhibitions at Toronto

will be shown this year at the state fair.
They are shire horses. There will also be
shown the flne string of hackneys which
hav captured so many prlzea at the New
York exhibitions. They are owned now by

Sunday School Management.
At the convention of the Christian Church
of Iowa here It Is decided to change th
management of the state Sunday school
work. The position of state secretary will
be abolished and the work will be looked
after by the several evangelists who will
be kept lh th field. Thla will mean con
siderable of a change In the methods.
The personal friend and business asso
ciate of John W. Gates was arrested in
this city and spent last night In the city
Jail on the charge of beating a hotel keeper.
Tha man arrested Is F. Vincent Lewis of
Chicago, promoter of a 8100,000 denatured al
coholic plant. He waa arrested on com
plaint of the Savery hotel and spent tha
night with drunks and bums. This morn
ing he furnished bond and wired to ex
Scnator Wm. Mason and Attorney Charles
E. Burroughs of Chicago. He will, he says,
start suit against the Savery. He claims
that h offered a check for 8M0 In payment
for his bosrd bill of f3l but the clerk
threatened to hold th check till morning
nd lie withdrew It.
RoimloBf In Gum.
H. R. Wright, state food and dairy com
missioner, hss discovered that a low grade
of soapstonc Is being used as an adulterant
In chewing gum. While not attempting to
pasa upon the ethics and propriety of gum
chewing aa either a pastime or an occupa
tion, the commissioner will Insist that the
manufacturers make It pure or label It.
Hull to 1 1slt Seventh.
As soon aa the election on the commission
plan of government Is held In this city Con
gressman J. A. T. Hull will take a trip
over the Seventh congressional district.
Heretofore It lias not always been neceiiary
for congressmen to look after the vhole
of their districts. In the Seventh, par
ticularly. If th congressman could carry
Polk and on other county h had a' ma
jority of th delegates In the convention.

Litigation Over Assessments.
LOOAN, Ia., June 19. (Special.) Papers
have been filed with the clerk of the Har
rison county district court by which the
Incorporated town of Logan and W. H.
Johnson, mayor, bring suit against A. B.
Hosbrook, Jonathan Holeton and M. Mur
ray, members of the Board of Supervisors
of Harrison county, and O. W. Atkins,
auditor, calling into question a resolution
passed by them on May 18 in whloh they
struck from the assessment books of Lo
gan the moneya and credits of William
Brayton in tho sum of 68.140 on account
of a double assessment. The plaintiffs
claim that Brayton appeared before the
town council while that body was sitting
aa a board of equalisation and that his
plea to have his assessment stricken from
the books waa turned down at that time.
They also claim that the twenty days pro
vided by law for an appeal to the county
board had elapsed. James' Robinson of
Magnolia sues Louis Freymuller, assessor,
and U. W. Atklna, auditor, the grievance
being that tha assessor for Magnolia town
ship assessed his real estate at 87.024 and
bis personal" property at I1C4 and then added
100 per cent on account of Robinson' hav
ing refused to list said property with him
as required by law.

Hands of Jury Thla
FLANDREATJ, 8. D., June 19. (Spe
cial.) The summing up arguments In th
Kaufmann murder case had not been
concluded this evening when court took
an adjournment until 9 o'clock Wednes
day morning. Oeorge Rice of counsel for
the defense followed States' Attorney
Orr of Minnehaha county, and State's At
torney Blcwltt o Moody county for tha
state had not concluded when court ad
journed for the day and will complete hi
remarks tomorrow morning. It Is under
stood he wU be followed by Judge Frank
Alkens for the defense and that Qoorgo
B. Egan will then make the closing argu
ment for the state. It la thought It will
be well toward evening tomorrow before
the arguments are concluded, tho chargo
of Judge Smith made to the Jury and tho
case finally turned over to the Jury for
action by that body. There 1 a possibil
ity that the case may reach the Jury nc
8 or 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, but
this now appears somewhat doubtful, but
that it will be turned over to the Jury
by the close of the afternoon session 1
reasonably certain.
Throughout the afternoon session hun
dreds of people crowded their way into
the court room for the purpose of listen
ing to the arguments. Those making th
summing-up arguments ore going over th
testimony very thoroughly and ar bit
terly attacking the testimony of the prin
cipal witnesses, especially the star wit
nesses on each side represented by Peter
Erlckson for the state and Dr. W. A. Ger
main for the defenae. Oeoraa Rica for
th defenae. In hi argument tbl after-,
noon, minutely pointed out the Incon
sistencies In tha testimony of Erlckson)
as offered at tha preliminary examination
ft Mrs TTniifmftnn a. VMr in A.nr1 oa
given by him at th trial of .the case.
Attorney Blewltt in his argument for
th stat somewhat bitterly assailed th
testimony of Dr. Germain, the object of
each side being to weaken, if possible, with
the Jury, the effect of the testimony given
by the star witnesses on each side of this
now famous caae.
Extraordinary precautions are being;
taken with the Jury. Under the instruc
tions of Judge Smith they are not per
mitted to even discuss the case among
themselves pending the turning of tha
case over to them for final adjustment.
The strain has been a severe on on th
Jury, a the member have, since th com
mencement of the trial, virtually been
prisoners but the health of the Jurymen
is being protected ao far a possible by
the officers In charge of them, giving then
exercise by walks about th town in a
body, during which they are constantly
under th eys and in charge of bailiff
who do not permit anyone to even ex
change the usual civilities with th Jury
