Carelessness of George W. Jensen ;

The deliberations of the district grsn.1
Jury, which reconvened Monday came to
a sudden termination, at least for the time
being, yesterday noon, owing to the fact
that one of the members.. George V. Jen
sen Of Norwalk township had a narrow
escape from crossing the great divide by
the asphyxiation route.
Jensen did not show up at the mim
ing session of the grand"- Jury and when
at noon the cause of his absence was In
vestigated he wan found unconscious In his
room at tha Ogden hotel and the room fuil
of gss. When first discovered, It was
thought Jsnsen was beyond sJl earthly
assistance, but after two physicians, who
were hastily summoned had worked over
him for four hours he partlajy regained
At the hotel It was stated that Jensen
retired to his room about 11 o'clock Mon
day night When tha door was broken In
shortly after noon yesterday he w'aa lying
In bed atUred In his night clothes. The
gas Jet was found turned on. It la be
lieved that Jensen must have got up bo
fore daybreak, lit the gas and after turn
ing It off Inadvertently turned It on again,
for If the gas had been flowing from the
time he went, to bed Monday .night .he
would have been dead long before the time
he was discovered. 1
When Judge Wheeler, learned ' of the
cause of Jensen's absence from the session
of the grand Jury he at once Issued an
order adjourning the, grand Jury until next
Monday, It is doubtful If Jensen will be
able to serve at that time and another of
the twelve members of the grand Jury
selected for the year will be called upon
to take his pi ice.
Although only six members were present
yesterday morning the grand Jury heard
several . of the witnesses subpoenaed to
give evidence concerning the two alleged

tES . MOINES. May 19. (Special. )
That the constitutional amendment move
ment is going to sweep the state of Iowa
like a clean broom Is the stntement of
A C. Rankin, state organiser for the tem
perance forces, who arrived In Des Moines
yesterday from five meetings In small
county sects, at which he raised over iy1.
He rays the men of the state are more
e; thuslnstlc over the constitutional amend
ment prospects than over any movement
In which he has been Interested. Money H
easily forthcoming and he snys the cam
paign will take on proportions that will
completely overwhelm the state and bring
about a decided declaration for a constitu
tional convention to amend the constitution
so as to provide orsolute prohibition.
There Is soon to be a meeting of the
board, composed of five men and women,
representing the six temperance organisa
tions of the state, at which time arrange
ments will be made for brtnglng into the
Iowa campaign "some cf the strongest tem
perance speakers In the United States. The
workers refuse at present to disclose the.
names of the campaigners, but declare
they are among the ablest men' of the
country and will create a decided stir. It
Is proposed to have a field or advance man,
who will go over the state making dates
and advertising the appearance ot these
speakers. From the way the associated
temperance organizations are receiving
funds in their constitutional amendment
movement it Is certain Iowa Is to be
plunged Into a temperance campaign which
may have considerable political signifi
cance. Reports that have gone forth that there
was dissension among the temperance so
cieties In the combination are branded as
untrue and are said to have been started
by one organisation which refused to affili
ate with the other organisations tn a united
fight for a constitutional amendment.
Just what opposition will be made to the
temperance movement and what form It
will assume has not as yet been disclosed.

"usually mean that the opposing party will

"Financial confidence Is reviving and

He was followed by Thomas E. Durbsn,

saying that "It seems thst this hss almost

anything that can be done by an average

"It seems to the writer that any laws

laws Is to localise business and to build
