Misconduct of Jury One of Reasons

In the motion for a new trial tn the
case against II. V. Battey to remove him
from the office of clerk of the district
court of Pottawattamie county, which was
filed yesterday, misconduct on the part of
the jury and erroneous Instructions on the
part of the court are aJleged. The charge
of misconduct on the part of the Jury Is
supported by an affidavit from James Mc
Robert, one of the Jurors.
In his affidavit Juror Mi-Robert, after
reciting that for the convenience of the
Jury, Its deliberations were, on order of the
court, conducted In the district court room
where the numerous books, records snd
papers Introduced at the trial could be
handled to a better advantage, states that
the door leading Into what Is known as
the ladles' waiting room was not locked,
although the Instructions of the court were
that all doors opening Into the court should
be locked. In this room Mr. Robert states
waa a telephone and that there was a
passage from this room to another room
In which another telephone la located.
As to these telephones Mr. McRobert
says they were used by all of the members
of the Jury except J. 8. Miller; that the
Jurors telephoned to parties outside of the
court room, soma of them using the tele
phone several times during the period they
were shut up In the room. Further Mr.
McRobert asserts that at times the Jurors
uaed 'he- telephone without the bailiff or
any other member of the Jury being near
thtm. He also says that Frank C. Rlker,
one of the Jurors, was called to the tele
phone and that while answering the call
Mr. Rlker closed the door between the
court room and the room In which the
telephone Is located.
Outside Matter Brought In.
Another statement by Juror McRobert in
his affidavit Is to the effect that one of
the Jurors stated In the ' presence of the
other members that the defendant, H. V.
Battey, had cheated one of his neighbors,
Land that the Juaor used this as am argu-
men against Mr. uauey, ana as a reason
for believing that he was guilty of altering
the records of his office.
As to the alleged errors on the part of
the court the motion states:
The court erred In ordering and requiring
the defendant to produce his private cash
and ledger books, for the reason that they
were personal and private papers, were not
records of the court, and no proper pro
ceedings had been taken by plaintiff to
compel their production as evidence, and
the said order was in violation of the con
stitutional rights of the defendant provid
ing against unreasonable aearch and seixure.
The court erred in instructing the jury
that tha burden of proof waa on the de
fendant upon the question of change and
alteration of the records of the court, for
the reason that the burden of proof upon
said question waa upon the stage and not
upon the defendant.
The date for arguing the motion for a
new trial has not been set, but It is under
stood to be the desire of both sides to
have It disposed of as soon as possible.
From members of the Board of Super
visors It was learned yesterday that no
action, looking to the appointment of a
successor to Mr. Battey, would be taken by
the board before the regular meeting In
June or before the motion for a new trial
was disposed of..

Those Operating at Manawa Maat
Obey Malrt Law.
The saloon business at Manawa will not
be as profitable this summer ss it haa been
In past seasons. The saloons will be re
quired to comply with me provisions of
the mulct law the same as the saloons In
the city. The sale of liquor will not be
permitted after 10 o'clock a night and the
saloons will have to keep closed on Sundays
and all -holidays. Including the Fourth of
July aifd Labor Day, which are as a rule
the big days at Lake M inawa.
The sale of liquor outside the saloon
buildings will not be permitted at Manawa.
Persons desiring to take a drink will have
to do so within the building and tables
and chairs on the outside wfH not be per
mitted. "Tbe saloons at Manawa will have to
comply with the provisions of the mulct
law the same as the saloons In the city
are required to do," stated County At
torney Hess yesterday when asked If It
was the Intention of the county ' authori
ties to enforce the law this summer at
Manawa. Heretofore, while the saloons In
Council Bluffs have been required to keep
closed on Sundays, those outside the en
closure at Manawa were permitted to
keep open.
The proprietor of one of the three sa
loons at Cut-Off called on Mayor Maloney
a day or two ago with the request that he
be permitted to keep his place open on
Sundays, as It was practically the only day
on which there was any trade to speak of
"I have nothing to do with the matter,"
replied the mayor. "Tou had better go and
get permission from Mr. Stuart, president
of the Law Enforcement league."
The saloonman, not realising that the
mayor was handing him anything but the
straight goods, hied himself to the office
of Attorney Stuart, to whom he stated his
A little while after the saloonman called
again on Mayor Maloney,
"Well, what did Mr. Stuart say?" aaked
the mayor.
"He told me that I could not open on
Sundays- and that It would be best for me
not to attempt to," replied the saloonman
with an Injured air.
"Well, that's strange," remarked Mayor
Maloney as he turned aside to hide a smile.
Prealdent Stuart of the Law Enforcement
league, while as yet he has not Issued any
formal edict to the effect, has intimated
In plain language that where liquor Is sold
in houses of ill-fame and other resorts of
like character the mulct tax will have to
be paid. An Informal notice to this effect,
it Is understood, has already been served
upon the municipal authorities. The latter,
however, take the position that the matter
Is properly one for the county attorney to
attend to.

Congressman J. A. T. Hull reached Des
Moines today from Washington and was
not long In saying that he Intended to vote
for Senator Allison, but aa to whether he
would stump the Seventh district for Al
lison remained to be determined after a
consultation with his friends. Captain Hull
reached the city at 7 this morning and
was met at the depot by political friends
who apprised him of the fact that Governor
Cummlna had declared himself for Prouty.
Congressman Hull was seen at the home
of Dr. H. C. Potter, a relative, soon after.
"I am going to vote foY Senator Allison,"
said Captain Hull, "but I am not going to
stump the state for him unless well, unless
my friends think It best. I am not sur
prised that Governor Cummins has declared
himself against me. I have never con
tributed to his campaign fund. I have
never made any fight for him. I am a
republican and do not believe in stirring
up the mud in my own party. But I don't
see what right any man running for the
United States senate has In telling people
how to vote for congressmen."
There is a well grounded rumor that
Allison men in the Seventh district will
insist that Hull do something for Allison.
They are pointing out to him that Cum
mins is doing all ha can against Hull and
that Hull cannot gain anything by re
maining silent and they believe he will
gain by apeaklng out for Allison. Tha
strong Allison men rather intimate that
they will see to it that Hull does gain If
he speaks out, but will not gain If he
doesn' t.

Omaha Packing Company Gets at Meat
in Burned Building.
Salvage as KreaBe Worth Onlr Small
Fraction of Oriarlnal Value Good
Government Leastae Plana
a Dinner.
The Omaha Tacking company was able
yentorJay to fret at most portions of the
building; which burnecf last Friday night.
The lower floor of the building still con
tained some meat which was not entirely
destroyed. Tfie meat was at once hauled
to the Cudahy packing plant, where It is
being tanked for the Omaha Packing com
pany. In this way several thousand dol
lars will be saved. The meat is all tainted
with a strong, resinous smoke, and will be
fit for little except soap and axle grease.
Some of it can be osed as a lard oil for
mechanical purposes, None of the meat
will ever be fit for' food. The Cudahy
chemists, however, are making a number
of tests to ascertain the exact value of
the salvage. It is likely that about three
fourths of a cent per pound will be all It
Is worth, while before the fire it would
average 10 or 12 cents per pound. The ma
chinery of the Ice plant was damaged in
some of the leas strong parts of the
mechanism, but it will not require a great
amount to get the machines In order. The
tanks for freeslng will have to be partially
rebuilt at least. The company will erect a
building capable of protecting this plant.
The rest of the damaged tiulldlngs will be
taken down' as soon as possible In the same
manner In progress with three buildings
before the fire. The hope Is expressed by
prominent men In packkng circles that
some other large packing firm may find
tlUs a good location for a plant.

rested last night in a state of intoxication
In which they had engaged In serious dis
turbance of the peace, and it is said that
one of them tried to commit sulrlds by
jumping Into a duck pond at Twenty
fifth and 8 streets. The pond was not
deep enough to drown any grown person,
and the cries of the second woman brought
assistance and the other was pulled out,
suaked with muddy water. They were
both placed under arrest and charged with
being Intoxicated.
Another story of the duck pond Is that
the woman who fell In did so accidentally.
In either case the water was Just as wet.
She wss Obliged to spend the night In her
wet clothes at the city jail.
Conanlt Over Jail Meddle.
The consultation between Mayor Frank
Koutsky and the attorneys of the Cham
pion Iron works resulted In a better un
derstanding of the jail situation and It is
thought by the advice of the chief of po
lice and the mayor the city coun'il will be
prevailed upon to come to an agreement
so that the jail may be put In service.
The chief never liked the pran of having
all the Individual cells separate. He
wanted one large room at least, . so that
the lesser criminals would 'be allowed a
little more consideration than the rough
element. The ?atter class numbers com
paratively few, and for these a few strong
cells must be provided, but the chief al
ways opposed muktng all the cells so

Whole Body Raw with Eczema

Incased in Plaster Discharged
from Hospitals as Hopeless.
" From the ago of three months until
fifteen years old, my son Owen's Ufa
was maae intoler
able by ecaeina In
its worst form. Ba
was all right until
a red ran broke
out on his fore
head, but wa war
not alarmed at first.
Vary soon, however,
tha rash began to
spread over his head
and shoulders, and
it caused him trmi
discomfort. I look
him to a doctor and tried half a dozen
other treatment, all with the sarna
result: no improvement at ail. Tha
disease gradually spread until nearly
very part of his body waa quite raw.
Wa had to strap him down in bed, for
he used to tear himself dreadfully In
his sleep. The agony he want through
is quite beyond words. No one thought
wo would rear him. Tha regimental
doctor, a vary clever man, pronounced
the caao hopeless; al least, he said tha
only hope was that ha might, if ha
lived long enough, otttgrow it to soma
extent. We had him in hospitals four
times and he waa pronounced one of
the worst cae, if not tha worst, ever
admitted. From each ha was dis
charged as inourablej In fact he got
worse under tha successive treatments.
At one hospital they incased him in
f taster, and this seemed to aggravata
he sorennss terribly. Ha luuled so
badly that no one liked to go near hint
and his life was a burden to him. Wa
kept trying remedy after remedy, but
we had gut almost past hoping for a
euro. Six months ago we purchased
a set of Cutioura Soap, Ointment, and
Resolvent Fills and persevered with
them. Tha result waa truly marvelous
and to-day ha la perfectly cured, his skin
not having a blemish on it anywhere.
