was found In the bed of Indian creek near
the Illinois Central passenger depot. The
vandals had evidently tried but failed to
break It. It is supposed that the thieves
expected to find some money sealed in the
stone, but the box containing coins and
other articles had been removed after the
exercises Sunday afternoon and the van
dals consequently got nothing for their
department, whose duty Is to tack tip
quarantine notices, fumigate quarantined
premises, etc., and Peter Smith, former
councilman, who is "sanitary officer," at
tached to the police department. Mr.
Smith's duties are to see that alleys, back
yards and other places are kept clean.
Children Hare Narrow Escape from
Belna Washed Into "ewer.
Although Indian creek did not leave Its
banks during heavy rain storm Tuesday
evening, surface waicr did considerable
damage In different parts of the city, owing
to the sewers being li. adequate to carry off
the vast volume of water.
On South Main street between the tracks
of the Burlington and those of the Great
Western the water poured over the side
walks and Into the cellars of the shutting
buildings. At this point In places the
water was two and three feet deep near
the curb.
Two little girls whose names could not
be learned, had a narrow escape from being
sucked Into the large manhole near the
Burlington depot. With their mother they
started to board a street car, and In step
ping from the sidewalk, the children
stepped Into a sewer opening where the
water was up to their chins. Bystanders
quickly pulled them from their perilous
position but not before the little ones were
wet to the skin.
The water from the hill streets poured
onto Broadway near First street in tor
rents, flowing over the sidewalks and
Into the cellars on the business houses on
the north side.
From the Illinois Central tracks to Ninth
street Broadway was a veritable river
and cellars on both sides were flooded.
While the water rose up to the floors of
the several bridges, Indian creek luckily
did not overflow.
While the street car traffic between
Council Bluffs and Omaha was interfered
with more or less the motors succeeded
In making their way through the water
which was up to tho steps. A bad wash
out on the Wabash road about ten miles
east of the city was reported.
It was reported that the r.ew concrete
bridge over Indian creek at Frank street
had been damaged, but the extent of the
damage could not be learned last night.
Take Advantage of Jailer Betas; at
Ilia Sapper. ,
Four prisoners In the county Jail took
advantage of heavy storm Tuesday evening
to make their escape. The four prisoners
who succeeded in evading the vigilance of
Jailer Gallup were William Howard, who
was serving a nine months' sentence for
breaking Into the saloon of Ed Murphy
on South Main street last September; Wal
ter Gumm, the negro assistant dog-catcher,
charged with murderous assault on C. F.
Grell, and the. two, youpg lads, Richard
Dempsey and George Davis, charged with
breaking into and robbing the Stroude bar
ber shop on South Main street. Gumm,
Dempsey and Davis were awaiting the ac
tion of the grand Jury now In session.
The escape was effected, as on former
occasions, through one of the rear wlne
dows, to reach which the prisoners had to
gain admission to the outer corridor. Ad
mission to the outer corridor was effected
by prying apart the bars which separate
tho Inner from the outer corridor on the
first floor. Exactly how this was accom
plished neither Sheriff Canning nor Jailer
Gallup had been able to ascertain last
night. One bar on the outer window was
aawed through and the bar then bent back,
leaving an opening of about ten Inches,
through which the four prisoners crawled
to liberty. It Is possible that the bar of
the outer window may have been sawed
by a confederate on the outside, but Sheriff
Canning is of the opinion that it was done
from the inside and that probably the men
who escaped had been working on It for
two or three days.
Tha men made their escape shortly be
fore 8 o'clock, about the time Jailer Gallup
and his family were finishing their supper.
Jailer Gallup had Just left the bulldlr.g
after finishing supper when his wife heard
a loud rapping at the main door leading
Into the lower corridor. On Investigating
she was told that four prisoners had Just
made their escape by a rear window. Mrs.
Gallup ran fo the front door and called her
husband, who had gone but a short dis
tance. Jailer Gallup at once placed the
remaining prisoners in the cells In the cyl
inder and then notified Sheriff Canning
and the police department.
From the, prisoners who remained. It
was learned that the negro, Gumm, stood
sentry at the door of the corridor, armed
with a rasor. while his three companions
crawled through the window, and then
threatened to carve any of them who might
follow him. made his getaway. As soon
as the negro had crawled through the win
dow the other, prisoners gave the alarm
by pounding on the door.
, All of the sheriff s force and several
members of the police force at once started
In pursuit of the escaped men, but up to
a late hour last night had failed to re
capture any of them. Deputy Sheriff
Oroneweg, who was In a buggy, met with
an accident on Eighth avenue while in
pursuit of the escaped men. His horse
stepped Into a washout In the road and
had to be dug out. The accident forced
Mr. Groneweg to abandon the chase.

check over the books and records of the
office of the clerk of the district court, waa
begun as soon as court convened yester

Child Too III to Attend School.
The case against C. E. Ellsworth, charged
with refusing to send his 12 year old
daughter to school waa dismissed In Jus
tice Cooper's court yesterday. It was
shown through Dr. Earl Bellinger that the
child had not been well during the winter
and was now in an anaemic condition,
as well as nervous. Dr. Bellinger testi
fied he had alvlsed the parents a short
time ago not to send the little girl to
school, fearing that It would further ImpTlr
her health. In dismissing the case against
Ellsworth, Justice Cooper took occasion
to commend Truant Officer Ilerner for his
efficient work and expressed the belief
that the officer had acted in perfect good
faith In the case at issue, though tho

Little Evidence Asm Inst Man Accused
of Assault at Dea Moines
Bluffs Contract.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. May 13.-(Special.)-Though
there is seemingly no question in
the minds of any but that Lamont Fred
erick, who is In the county Jail here la the
man who assaulted Mrs. W. II. Rlsser,
there Is every probability that he will be re
leased because Mrs. Rlsser's testimony is
the only evidence against the negro. Mrs.
Risser has twice Identified the man, once
at her home hen he was arrested and
brought there by the police and once at the
county Jail, where she picked him out of a
company of nine negroes and then fainted
at the thought of the horrible assault tho
man had made upon her.
When Frederick was first arrested there
was talk about town of a lynching and the
sheriff put an extra guard about the
county Jail, and about Frederick's cell.
Today County Attorney DeGraff declared
that unless there was some additional evi
dence of some kind against Frederick he
would have to be released, as the evi
dence of Mrs. Rlsser alone would not be
sufficient to convict. The next day after
the crime for which Frederick was held,
the Dally Capital of this city, contained
an editorial, warning the negroes of tha
city that such assaults as that upon Mrs.
Rlsser would not be tolerated.
The State Board of Control today let the
contract for the erection of the cold stor
age building for the School for the Deaf

appropriation was $3,500.

CHICAGO, Mty.,,,3. Delegates to the
socialist national convention In session
here made little progress today In the
direction of an- agreement of policies or
platform. The greater part of the brief ses
sion held today was devoted to arguments
by contesting delegates from western
states. In and out of convention the con
teat between Eugene V. Debs and William
D. Haywood for the presidential nomi
nation was the subject of much discussion,
and tonight, with one day Intervening be
tween the balloting will probably begin. It
was predicted that neither would be chosen
to lead the socialist ticket. A rumor which
gained currency during the day that Hay
wood had withdrawn from the race was
vigorously denied tonight by supporters of
Haywood's candidacy.
Eugene V. Debs was still absent because
of illness in his family, but it is thought
likely he will appear and take a personal
part in the fight before long. Beside these
two men, A. M. Simons of Illinois, Ben
jamin Hanford of New York and Rev. Carl
D. Thompson of Milwaukee are mentioned
for the presidential nomination. Rev.
Thompson's name when mentioned fn the
