of Other F.sir Marks.
Another Installment of three petitions In
the suits brought In the district court at
Council Bluffs by "Mikes' against J. C.
Maybray and other alleged members of the
swindling syndicate were filed yesterday
by Attorneys Wadsworth and Crawford. Of
the twenty-two suits brought by these at
torneys on behalf of the alleged victims of
the "big storo" gang, original notices of
which have been served, eight petitions
hava now been filed In the district court.
The plaintiffs In tbo three suits In which
petitions wcro filed yesterday are:
Joseph TV. Ielsen of Menominee, Mich.,
who" claimed to have been bunkoed out of
$10,0) on June 7, 1907, on a fake boxing
Joseph P. Walker of Denver, Colo., who
claims to have dropped $5.? on a fake
horse race on July t, 19W, and to have been
robbed or a diamond stud valued st $mo
by one of the gang of "conspirators." lis
sues for $4,106.
J. E. Harrington of HarUel. Colo., who
says he was swindled out of $4.0UO on a
fake horse race on August 20, 1U0S.
The defendants who are the same as
thosa named In the petitions filed last
Saturday in the other five sulta are Ben
jamin Marks, alias No. 7ft; First National
bank of Council Bluffs, Ernest E. Hart,
Ernest E. Hart (Incorporated), John J.
flplndler, James C. Maybray, alias J. C.
Gordon, alias No. 66, alias 'B." alias J. T.
Barnes, alias B. S. Ansel; John K. Dob
bins, alias Becky DobblnB; Frank O. Scott,
alias Frank Maxwell, alias George Wilron.
In the petition In Joseph W. Lelsen's case
no alleged "steerer" Is named as one of
the defendant;. In Joseph P. Walker's
case. Frank Adams and George Ryan are
made defendants as alleged steerers. In
Harrington's case, W. H. Coon Is named as
the steerer and Is made a defendant.
Fake Bexlng Match.
Tha petition In the case of Joseph W,
Lelsen, the "Mike" from Menominee,
Mich., who claims to have been separated
from $10,000 by the gang Is somewhat dif
ferent to tha others, as Lelsen says he
was bunkoed out of his money at a fake
boxing match Instead of at a horse race,
as most of the "Mikes" were. Although
not named as one of the defendants Harry
Lewis Is alleged by Lelsen to have Induced
him to come to Council Bluffs to osten
sibly act as stakeholder at a boxing
match between Lewis and a man named
J. C. Gordon. The stakes were to be IM.OOO
a side and Lelsen had to show that he
was a man of means In order to officiate
as stakeholder. As evidence of his finan
clal standing Lelsen brought $10,000 with
him to Council Bluffs. He returned home
without It. The boxing match, Lelsen says
in his petition, was pulled off in a building
at the southwest corner of Broadway and
Blxtecnth street. After a few rounds one
of the boxers fell to the ground and pre
tended to be dead, while blood gushed
from his mouth and nose, tha same trick
of the bladder containing blood from
chicken was made una of In the fake horae
races. The members of the "Millionaires'
club" became acared when the boxer fell
and Lelsen was at once told of the neces
sity of flight to escape arrest. He fled
and In the excitement Lewis, who had
held lelsen's $10,000 forgot to return htm
his money. This fake boxing match la
alleged to hava been pulled off In June,
1907, a year before the gang made Council
Bluffs its headquarters.
Walker Loses Diamond Stad.
Joseph P. Walker of Denver alleges that
In addition to being bunkoed out of $o,306
on July 3, 1908, on a fake horse race near
Manawa, one of the members of the gang
robbed him of a diamond stud valued at
$800. Although not so stated In the peti
tion filed yesterday, Walker, when relat
ing hla experiences with the gang to
Postofflce Inspector Swenson, accused
George Ryan, a saloonkeeper at Hot
Springs, who was arrested a few months
ago, with taking his stud. Walker told
Mr. Swenson that Ryan stepped up to
him and cooly unscrewed the stud from
his, Walker's, shirt front and put the
Jewel In his own pocket.
Red Leo and Abble L. were the two
horses w'.tch figured In the race which
cost Walker his wad. The same trick
of one of the Jockeys dropping from his
horse and spitting blood was employed In
Walker's case, as In many others.
For the horse race which cost J. E. Har
rington of Hartsel, Colo., $4,000, a horse
named Bullet was matched against Abble
L. Charles Murphy and Tom Wilson are
named as having been the Jockeys In tho
race Instead of Charles Barrett and Tom
Rosers, ho figure In so many of these
fake horse races. The race 1n this case
was run like the others near Manawa
and the usual stunt of one of the jockeys
falling and spitting blood was pulled off.
Sntor Amends Petlttou.
ftamuel Sutor, tha hotelkeeper of Cass
Lake, Minn., who was the first "Mike"
to bring suit to recover the money out of
which he claimed to have been fleeced by
the Mabray gang, yesterday filed an
amendment to his petition In the I'nlted
States court in this city. 'The amendment
is for the purpose of correcting an error
in the name of one of the defendants.
In the original petition Ben "Marsh" Is
named as one of the defendants. Tha
Council Bluffs Iowa
. III 1
amendment shoes that tha Individual
meant Is Hmjamln Marks of this city.
Besides correcting the error In the name

allegations, charges and aocusations con
tained In the original petition ara applied

Crofford Pardon Meld l
Governor Carroll has not acted on the
Crofford pardon aa yet, and the Intima
tions from his office are that he will not
be hasty In acting. The pardon was rec
ommended to the governor by the State
Board of Parole largely because of the
evidence of Dr. Brown of this city, whose
testimony establishes the nature of an
alibi for Dr. Crofford. If Dr. Brown'a
testimony Is true Crofford could not be
guilty. Some of the newspapers In the
southern part ot the state In Decatur
county, especially where the crime was
committed, are criticising the action of
the board of parole in recommending the
pardon, and seem inclined to doubt the
word of Dr. Brown. Besides persona op
posed to the pardon of Crofford are urg
ing the governor not to grant the padon.

Western I'nlon Answers,
The Western Union Telegraph company
has answered Secretary Hayward's offer
to file their articles and accept the fee
and waive the resolution of the company's
board of directors. The company questions
his right to waive this formality and re
fuses the fee of $125,000 which it was hoped
to receive, on the ground the company's
federal charter allows It to do business
without paying such fee and on the fur
ther ground that the company was doing
business In Iowa prior to ISM, and so la
exempt from such fee by the Iowa law,
The letter from the company's attorney
seems to end all hopes of a peaceful agree
ment between the sta'te and the company,
and the next step will be to try the case
out In the courts. -

SIOX'X FALLS. S. D., July 29. (Special )
The 12-year-old daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Pobunda, sr., well known
residents of the little town of Tabor, re
cently proved herself a heroine of no
small degree by rescuing a 4-year-old girl
from drowning. The little girl with some
playmates had been playing on the bank
of a creek, which flows through Tabor,
when she lost her balance and fell Into
the stream. The water was running like
a mlllrace, and the little girl was car
ried through a cluvert thirty feet long
and four feet square, and finally lodged
against a barb wire fence, which became
entangled In her clothing and held her.
At this Juncture the Pobunda girl plunged
Into the swollen stream and went to the
rescue of tho child, and after some effort
succeeded In bringing her safely to shore.
The rescued child had no sooner recovered
herself than she asked for her "little
whip," which she had dropped when she
lost her balance and fell Into the stream.
Dog Ba-res Lite of Girl.
SIOUX FALLS, 8. t., July . Speclal.)
To the sagacity of tha family dog Is due
the saving of the life of the little daugh
ter of Gus Jones, a well known rancher

banka ot Kim creek near her home the
little girl missed her footing and fell Into
the stream at a point where there was a
deep hole. This was at some little dis
tance from the house, and the parents
failed to hear the screams of the child.
But the dog did hear and Immediately
started to the rescue. The first knowledge
the parents had of the accident and nar
row escape of their daughter was when
they chanced to look toward the creek and
saw the dog emerge from the water drag
ging the little girl In Its mouth. The dog
had grabbed the chlrd's dress between Its
teeth and pulled her from what would
have been certain death. The dog now Is
a "star" boarder at the Jones' home.
