WOODRUFF NAMED FOR JUDGE
Nomination Made on the Two Hun
dred and Eighty-Second Ballot.
POTTAWATTAMIE LEADS BREAK
After Three Dars of nallotlnsr the
Delegates Tire of Straaale and
Flock to a Dark florae from
Eugene B. Woodruff of Glenwood. a
n ember of the Mills county bar, Was nomi
nated yesterday afternoon by the repub
lican convention of the Fifteenth Judicial
district of Iowa, which had been In session
since Tuesday morning, as candidate for
Judge of the district bench to succeed
Judge N. W. Maey of Harlan, whose term
expires at the end of this year.
Mr. Woodruff was a dark horse and not
a candidate for the nomination before the
convention at which he was In Lttendance
as a member of the deleaatlon from Mills
county, which had a candidate In the per
son of A. E. Cook of Malvern. Mr. Cook
withdrew from the contest after the 167th
ballot Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Woodruff's name first came before
the convention Wednesday afternoon, when
on the 132d ballot Pottawattamie county
sprung him. and gave him four- of Its
twenty-eight votes. During ' the ensuing
balloting, however, he failed to develop any
support from the other counties and on
the l?2d ballot the Pottawattamie county
delegation, which had been giving Mr.
Woodruff eight votes, switched to 8. Scott
Lewis, also of Glenwood, another dark
horse. On the 156th ballot Pottawattamie
ccunty acaln voted for Mr. Woodruff, but
after tho 157th ballot, when A. E. Cook,
the regular candidate from Mr. Woodruff'a
county, withdrew from the contest, his
name was not again mentioned during the
balance of the session Wednesday after
noon. Nomination Late In Afternoon.
The nomination of Mr. Yvoodruff was
brought about on the 2&5th ballot, shortly
after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. It was
brought about by tho delegation from
Pottawattamie, the members of which real
ised that it whh apparently hopeless to
name Thomas Arthur of Logan, the candi
date from Harrison county who waa the
eholce of a large majority of their number.
The balloting had proceeded during the
morning and for over an hour of the
afternoon session without any signs of the
deadlock being broken.' It waa evident that
not one of the remaining four regular can
didates could effect a combination to secure
the necessary fifty-five votes for the nom
ination. Two attempts to adjourn the con
vention, failed and then the delegates got
together and decided that something should
be done to break the deadlier.. Pottawat
amle county took the Initiative and on the
.75th ballot cast Its entire twenty-eight
votes for Mr. Woodruff. None of the
other counties seemed willing at firat to
follow Pottawattamie county's lead In the
direction of the Mill county man. Potta
wattamie county, however, was In earnest
and on the next ballot again gave Its entire
twenty-eight votes toMr. Woodruff. On
the 277th ballot Mills county added its ten
votes to tho Woodruff column. On the
28Tth ballot Mr. Woodruff received eight
votes from Audubon, ten from Mills and
twenty-eight from Pottawattamie, making
a total of forty-six. but Shelby refused to
come In. On the next ballot Woodruff
only received thirty-right, eight of Potta
wattamie's votes being divided between
Beeson and . Rockafellow.
On the 2S2d ballot It looked as if the
convention was about to stampede to
Rockafellow. the candidate from Cass
county. Woodruff's votes slipped away to
Rockafellow and the latter received forty
eight, or Just seven short of sufficient to
nominate him. Rockafellow's boom, how
ever, was but short lived. Harrison county,
seeing that It could not make Its candidate,
Thomas Arthur, threw Its twelve votes to
Woodruff. Mills followed with Its ten
votes snd Pottawattamie brought the total
up to fifty by giving him Its entire twenty
eight. The next ballot resulted the same
and then came the rush to climb Into the
Woodruff bandwagon. When the roll was
called for the 285th ballot Audubon led off
with Ita eUrht votes for Woodruff, Cass
followed with Its eleven, Fremont with
Its eight, Harrison with Its twelve. Mills
with its ten snd It Idbked for a moment
as If Woodruff's nomination was to be
unanimous, but Montgomery refused to
abandon Its candidate, R. W. Beeson of
Red Oak, and announced Its eleven votes
for him. Page, which had been Instructed
for Beeson, clir.Sbed Into the Woodruff col
umn with Its ten votes, rottawattamle
county, exultant over having broken the
deadlock, gave Woodruff Its twenty-eight,
and then Shelby county with Ita ten votes
which had stood by Its candidate, George
W. Culllson. from the opening ballot on
Tuesday, also Joined the procession and
voted for Woodruff.
Skrtrh of Candidate.
Eugene B. Woodruff, the nominee, is 58
years of age and resides In Glenwood, at
which place he has been engaged in the
practice of law alnce 1881. He ia a gradu
ate of the Michigan university and was ad
mitted to the bar Ir. 1879 on graduating.
Mr. Woodruff atanda high aa a lawyer.
Hon. John Y. Stone, former attorney gen
eral for Iowa and chairman of the con
vention, paid this tribute to Mr. Woodruff
when the latter waa nominated: "Not In
the atate of Iowa could hla superior have
been found for thla posit lor. His high
character and hla deep knowledge of the;
law pre-eminently fit Mr. Woodruff for the
position of Judge of the district bench.''
The only incident to disturb the monotony
of the fruitless balloting during the morn
ing session arose during the 234th ballot.
On this ballot Arthur of Harrison county
received forty-eight votes, the .highest he
reached during the day. Chairman J. M.
Calvin of the Pottawattamie delegation in
announcing the vote of the county gave
twenty-four to Arthur. Charles M. Harl.
a member of the delegation and a atrong
supporter of J. B. Rockafellow, the Cass
county candidate, promptly challenged the
correctness of Mr. Galvln'a announcement.
"The secretary will call the roll of the
delegates from Pottawattamie county and
record their votes." announced Chairman
The secret ary commenced to copy the
names of the Pottawattamie county dele
gatea preparatory to calling the roll, but
before he had completed this preliminary
the delegatea had held a consultation and
Mr. Galvln corrected the vote, which gave
Arthur twenty-two Instead of twenty-tour.
Mr. Hari then withdrew the challenge, wltU
the statement that the error had evidently
been entirely unintentional.
After the B7th ballot, which was the
forty-seventh for the morning session, tha
convention adjourned until I. SO p. m. by a
vote of T to 21 on roll call. The adjourn
ment waa shortly before 11:90 o'clock.
After the Jkth ballot In the afternoon
Colonel Chastry of MUta cvuoty moved that
the convention adjourn to July t, but
the motion was overwhelmingly defeated.
Before the vote was taken Chairman Gal
vln of Pottawattamie suggested July 14 as
a less distant anil hence more desirable
date, but the suggestion was unheeded.
After the 270th ballot Sidney Pitt ot the
Harrison county delegation moved to ad
journ to July 15, but on roll call the mo
tion was defeated by a vote of eighty-three
On receiving the nomination. Mr. Wood
ruff was called before the convention, and
In a hrlef speech he thanked the conven
tion for the honor which he said had come
to him wholly unsought and unexpected,
as he had attended the gathering merely
as a delegate to assist In naming a candidate.

and although he had retired from active
duty was pastor of the church until hla
death. His Increasing Infirmities com
pelled him to go to Mercy hospital Feb
ruary 24 of this year for care and treat
ment. Father Smyth was prominent In the
Catholic church and for a year held a
place In the bishop's council. At different
times his name had been favorably men
tioned' for the office of bishop when the
advisability of placing a bishop In Council
Bluffs was discussed. He took a lively In
terest In the affairs of the city and for
several years served as a member of the
oard of trustees of the free public library.

GOVERNOR'S PARDON POWER
Kot Necessary to Hare the Concur

OLD VIEW OF LAW OVERTURNED
Governor Cammlna Announces Posi
tively that He Will Not Resign,
bat Will rve Ont Hla
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DBS MOINES. July 3 (Special. )-When
the State Board of Parole meets Monday
It will consider the application for a pardoi
of George Weeins. If It decides that he is
entitled to a pardon It will make the
recommendation to the governor and the
governor will grant tho reco"mmendatlon.
For many yeara the governors of Iowa
have never pardoned life criminals, except
on the recommendation of the legislature.
It was supposed that they could not pardon
them except on the favorable recommenda
tion of the legislature. Governor Cummins
held this view till an Investigation wal
made by J. A. Dyer, attorney for Georgs
Weems. He presented a brief to show thst
the law provides that applications for
pardon must be submitted to the legisla
ture, but that the governor can pardon
regardless of the legislature after the ap
plication has been submitted.
Governor Cummins presented the brief to
Attorney General Byers for sn Investiga
tion and General Byers has returned hla
opinion sustaining Mr. Dyer. There are
twenty-two prlaoners In the state peni
tentiary whose applications for pardon
have been submitted to the legislature.
According to the opinion of General Byers,
In which the governor now concurs, these
applications can now be submitted to the
governor and he can pardon or not as he
likes. The governor will require that they
all go through the hands of the State
Board of Parole. Three eucn will be sub
mitted Monday to the Board of Parole.
One is that of George Weems. Another la
James Burns, who killed Jerry Corcoran
In this city. Weems killed a man named
Rldpath here. The third Is Otis Green,
who killed his wife in this city.
Hull Moves Acaln.
Congressman Hull has filed a petition for
a writ of certiorari before Judge Wright
of Fort Dodge to get a review of the ac
tion of the Board of Supervisors In recount
ing the ballots In Grant township of Story
county. This further ties up the congres
sional situation in the Seventh district and
makes more certain that there will be no
republican nominee and that Hull and
Prouty will each have to go on the ticket
by petition if they go on at all.
Cummins Will Hot Resign.
Governor Cummins today authorized the
statement that he will not resign from the
office of governor, and stated that there
was never any serious consideration ot the
matter on his part.
"I have expressed the wish to close
friends that I might resign and get out of
public life for the remaining six months
of my term, but have never seriously con
templated doing so. You can say defi
nitely that I will not resign."
Captain Rusaell Dead.
Captain M. T. Russell, for many years
one of Des Moines' prominent citizens,
died this morning at his home in Oakland,
Cal. Captain Russell had been ill for a
long time. His removal to California two
years ago was for the purpose of Improv
ing his health, which was ttien very poor.
He was a prominent members of the Grand
Army of the Republic.
Socialists Drop Behind.
The total vote polled by the socialists
at the primary election was 1,154 for John
M. Work for United States senator. In
nineteen counties not a socialist vote was
csst. In thirteen counties only one socialist
vote was cast, that one socialist vote mak
ing the entire nomination and necessitat
ing the names being placed on the Novem

the highest prohibition vote, getting 1,542,
while Malcolm Smith, for United States

SOLDIERS MAKE ARRESTS
Seven Alleged Mexican Revolutionists
Taken by Federal Troops 'at
Del Rio. Tea.
SAN ANTONIO. July 8.-Seven alleged
Mexican revolutionists have been captured
by United States troops at Del Rio and
the aurroundlng country, according to W.
E. Weatherbee, a prominent ranchman.
"Four of the revolutionists were cap
tured night before last by detachments of
troops," said Mr. Weatherbee, "and three
were taken yesterday morning. They have
all been placed In the county Jail at Del
"There are about 200 soldlera now at Del
Rio and along the river.
"One hundred men went over to Mexico
from Del Rio, but not half that number
have returned, and it is thought the re
mainder have either been killed or are be
ing pursued by the Mexican troops."
MEXICO, July 2-Mexlco will ask the
United Slates to punish severely the local
authorltlea of Del Rio, Tex., and possibly
othera of the atate, under whose authority
they acted. The grounds will be that the
officers knowingly failed In their duty by
allowing persons who partook In the Las
Yacaa raid to return to the Texas side of
the river uninterfcred with and to bring
with them their wounded.
Punishment may also be asked for the
authorities and police of Del Rio for allow
ing meetings to be held there for the pur
pose of fomenting and planning raids, mur
der and robbery in Mexico.
The latter request, however, will be con
tingent on Investigations not yet completed,
which have for their purpose the ascertain,
tug of the amount of knowledge which the
police of Del Rio had of meetings. This
new phase of the international side of the
trouble In northern Mexico was made
known today by Minister Marlscal of the
foreign lelations department. Bad faith
toward Mexico by the stale of Texis In
the recent trouble is strongly suspectr-d by
the Mexican government.
"The action of Washington has been the
very best," said MinUfer Marlscal today.
"Not only has the United States govern
ment shown Itself eager and willing to
assist Mexico, but took qu.ck steps to move
troops to the border, evincing a degree of
friendliness which cannot be questioned

OTHERS ALSO IN BAD SHAPE
Much Work Is Needed, but Funds
of City Available for that
Purpose Are Practically
Many complaints have been lodged with
the mayor and th'j street commissioner
lately as to the condition ot West Q Bireet.
As far as the paving goes, that is to Thirty
third street, everything Is all right; but as
soon as the end of the paving is reached a
team at once plunges into a bog which Is
almost impassable. The street ia In worse
condition than Mlsfourl avenue ever was.
Not only Is the street muddy, but it la
partially obstructed by the ties and rails
the street car company has In place for the
construction of a double track. Tho work
on this track has been suspended during
the last week, mostly on account of the
weather. All these conditions conbined
have practically suspended travel.
The last heavy rain caused the man hole
of the sewer at Thirty-third street to wash
out and the council has ordered the big

tied weather before beginning the work of
paving the street.
The complaints of Q street are not the
only ones In the city. The street repair
fund Is likely to be txhausted to the limit
of all which can possibly be raised for the
repair of numerous washouts. Wherever
the street is it all hilly the Intersections
have been washed away all over the city.
Speculation Over MrCaa-ue Tract.
Talk of Improvenitnta on. me property
bought from Mrs. Jefflres last year by the
McCague Investment company has been re
vived within the last day or two. It was
maintained by the purchasers that the land
was bought purely as a speculation.
Within the last day or two, it is reported
by P. J. Barrett, a piopcrty owner in that
section, two or three railroad men, In
compar.y with Mr. McCaguo and Senator
Millard, were making a careful examina
tion of the land. It Is understood that the
I'nlon Taclflc is particularly Interested in
that section of South Omaha. The land
is such as could be used for trackage or
could be leased to advantage to manufac
turing interests. The latter have been vari
ously speculated on, from the McKeen shops
to a brickyard. I'nder the explanation given
last year, the pnpt-rly Is yet valuable a
a residence district. When the Mud creek
sewer shall hao been i-ampleted the stench
of the sewage which now makes the place
undesirable will be removed. Then it s
lik.iy that the section will come into d.l
mand as a residence proposition.
Month's Police Mecurd.
The police court recoius fur tiie month of
June are somewhat l.-ma i kablu for Hie
number of prisoners booked who have been
captured for oilier cities. No less than
twenty-thit-e have been thus arrested and
turned over. Another record Is the remark
ably small number of fn.ea imposed by the
pollc Judge for petty offenses. Out of 215
arrests only twnity-five laid fines in po
lice court, fifty-two served short Jail sen
tences and twenty of tin so were boarding
out a fine, being unwillinij to pay over the
money. During the month three men broke
Jail. Two of these were wanted In other
cities. Tha other was wanted for a crime
in this city. Ninety-one men arrested were
dismissed. The Judtie is inclined to be mod
erate with the oidmary drunks and of
fenders of that class on account of the
wretched condition of the present Jail quar

will be soon, he sssurcs those wno may

WATTERSON ON PARKER MOVE
Says Attempt to ItrasT Body of Cleve
land from (irsvs la Dis
graceful. LOUISVILLE. Ky., July 8. Commenting
upon the report from New York last night
that Alton B. Parker had beew selected to
present resolutions at tho Denver conven
tion upon ex-President Cleveland's death,
Colonel Henry Watterson said:
"The attempt to drag tho deed body cf
Grovor Cleveland from ita new-made gTavry
Into the tumult of a national convention
will deceive no one. An invasion of the
grief of the noble woman who woepe amid
the silence and tho solitude of the granite
hills, a blow at party concord, it Is the act
of shameless hypocrites. Nor was ever a
professional ghoul Inspired by a more mer
cenary spirit, because tho sole aim and
end of the Murphy-Connors crowd, aided by
Judge Parker. Is tho perpetuation Of the
ascendancy of the Belmont-Ryan combina
tion to which democracy owes its last
ignomlnouB and well deserved defeat. It
was Belmont-Ryan money that financed
Judge Parker's campaign for the nomina
tion ol 1904. It was Belmont-Ryan money
that nominated him, and It waa the Belmont-Ryan
tag that made an antl-trust
government under auch a brand absurd an.,1
"It seemed fitting that, having mado
sacrifices for predatory wealth, Judge Par
ker should have his recompense in a rich
law practice In the city of New York. Ibi
has nad It, and with it, and its enrichment
he should rest well content. That he should
emerge from this highly paid obscurity U
make trouble through sheer malevolence
were pitiable Indeed; but that he should
appear, backed by money of the trust mag
nates and traction thieves, appealing to
Jefferson and Tllden, the dead body of
Cleveland atretched upon the dlssacUmt
table, Is disgraceful.
"In Mr. Bryan and a reunited party dem
ocrats saw hope of victory- On none other
waa there the smallest hope of ur.lon. That
they reason truly has been shown by tho
fact that with the Ryan-Belmont 'bari' on
tap and Its agents flying about In every
direction, state after state, refusing to be
tampered with or tainted, has declared for
the Ncbraskan. Seeing thlB, Judge Parkei
Is put forward to deliver the final strok
of the brave and under the pretense of
honoring tho memory of Cleveland, to
plunge a blade reeking with poison artfully
prepared Into the heart of democracy.' Tha'
he should lend himself to such villainy will
engulf him In the scorn of honorable men
and the detestation of thoughtful demo
'Tixier any condition and from arjy quar
ter the proposal to revive old quarrels by
preamble and resolution on the threshold of
a nntlonul movement would be thrown out
aa Insane. ComliiK from Connors and Mur-
! nhv from liplmnnt und Iivan. from Parker
and Siu-ehar., It will be thrown out as in
famous. They may defeat us, but they can
net debauch us.-"
