Ramor He Will Not Be oa Haod to
Try Liquor Cases.
Ha John Brown, the saloon crusader
from Cuba, Kan., folded hla tent and like
the nomad Arab of ancient lore quietly
slipped away to seek pasture new or will
he be on hand Monday morning when the
first of his many liquor Injunction suits
I called in the district court? Rumor hath
It that Mr. Brown has vacated the field
which he entered so mysteriously several
month ago. In any case a sign "To Rent"
adorn the little office on Pearl street
whloh Mr. Brown occupied, the little red
curtain has been taken from the glass
door and the one ohalr, little desk and
equally diminutive wood stove, not to men
tion the Iowa code, whloh alone constituted
the Kansan's law library, have disappeared.
Attorney Crawford, who represented Mr.
Brown In the contempt proceeding, says
that while Mr. Brown has left the city, he
doe hot know whether he Intend to re
turn and prosecute the saloon Injunction
suits. Mr. Crawford states he ha nothing
to do with these suit and haa not been
retained by Brown to appear for him In
Some of the saloon men against whom
Brown brought suit are wearing smiles
which apparently mean more than they are
willing to admit while others say they
hope the crusader from Kansas will,
like the Immortal John Brown' oul "keep
marching on," never to return.
County Attorney Hess expressed sur
prise when told that Brown had vacated
his office and left the city. He said he
knew nothing of any "arrangement" hav
ing been reached between the saloonmtn
and Brown.
In his answer filed In . the contempt pro
ceedings Brown claimed to be a resident
and cltlien of Council Bluffs.
Judge Thornell has notified the attorney
Interested that he will come to Council
Bluffs July 22 to try the first batch of
suit Involving the assessment of the stock
of the Portland Gold Mining company for
taxation In Pottawattamie county. Harl
A Tlnley of this city have been retained
to assist County Attorney Hess, while the
Portland company and Jame F. Bum,
former president of the corporation, will
be represented ty Congressman Walter I.
Smith and Saender Stuart of thl city,
Tyon & Dine and Former Governor
Thomas of Denver and A. F. Chlnn of
Colorado Springs. One of the questions at
Issue is that of the legality of the transfer
of the Iowa Incorporation of the Portland
company to the Wyoming corpor.tton
wh'ch was formed after the authorities
of Pottawatttmle county decided to assess
the stouk oKthe company.
Judge Thornell had before him In the
district court here yesterday the suit
k..,.M h. County Attorney Hess at the
Instance of the supervisor, of Pottawat
tamie county to require H. V. Battey. clerk
of tho dlstr.ct court, to make an account
ing of the a month allowed him during
196 and 1 for extra clerk hire and to
recover into mo county
paid him In excess of that which he had
paid out for this purpone. At Its January
session In 1JS the Board of Supervisors, by
resolution, placed Mr. Battey's salary at
13,2'), rj lowing him M a year out of the
probate fee and W a month fir extra
clerk hire. Mr. Battey drew this H0 a
month for twenty months, when a contro
versy arose between him and certain mem
bers of the board, and Mr. Battey declined
to claim this W a month until the matter
had been aettled by the court. Mr. Battey,
In court yesterday, shewed that he hnd paid
out over 1700 for extra clerk hire during
the period and also took the position that
under tho resolution adopted by tho board
he was not required to make any showing
ts to the expenditure of this allowonce for
clerk hire. Evidence was Introduced to
show that his predecessor In office had been
allowed and had drawn $4on a year for extra
clerical help. It was also shown by Mr.
Iiattey that he and his two deputies had
been obliged to work nights and Sundays
to ket p up the work of the office. In his
answer Mr. Battey claims the $40 for t!
four months of 196 which he declined to
draw pending the determination of the con
troversy by the court. The Board of Super
visors at Its January session this year, by
resolution, allowed a salary of $50 a month
for a clerk In Mr. r.attey'a ofllee In addi
tion to the regular deputies, of whom there
are two In this office and one at Avoca.
Judge Thornell took the case under advisement.
