General Superintendent Freeman L. Reed j
of the National Horticultural congress Is
receiving daily applications for space for
exhibits at the fruit show to be held
November IS to 50 and tha management Is
now confronted with tha fact that every
Inch of room that can be obtained by the
erection of additional buildings will be
needed, for the displays which will ba sent
here from all parts of the United States.
Idaho Is determined to have a much finer
exhibit than was shown here last year by
them. The Boise City Commercial club has
written to Superintendent Reed reserving
space for two carloads of fruits, chiefly
apples. All of the western states that
showed last year have mad reservations
of space, each asking for more space than
they used at first. At tha present tlma all
of the coast states are represented among
those who have applied for space.
The greatest interest, however, that has
been aroused anywhere Is sweeping over
the south with Texas and Florida the
storm centers. The Florida papers, led
by the Tampa Weekly Tribune, are devot
ing colums of space to tha work of arous
ing public Interest and are using half page
advertisements and oolumns of first page
articles calling upon all of their people te
respond In the effort to raise a large fund
to defray the expenses of the Florida ex
hibit. James McComb. Jr., a special com
missioner In charge of the Florida, exhibit
In a column and a half article of the front
page of the Tampa Sunday Tribune says:
"It Is Florida's opportunity to attract the
people of the world. Five thousand dollars
should be raised at once. Public spirited
men in all sections of the state should con
tribute to this fund. Boards of trade of
every city or town In the state should send
at least STA or S100. Every bank in . the
state should send $25 to $50. Every town
or city council should donate something
and every hotel of any size should send at

this grand opportunity to urge their
readers to send a donation."

As a proper recognition of the import
ance of the National Horticultural con
gress to the city of Council Bluffs the
Commercial club has decided to contribute
the funds for the most valuable trophy
that will be given to exhibitors at the
forthcoming exposition. For the purpose
of purchasing this handsome trophy the
club will contribute the sum of $i00. This,
owing to the manner in whicn the trophies
are being procured from the manufactur
ers, will, provide a trophy that will be
worth considerable more, than If pur
chased In the usual way by Individuals.
The importance of this trophy has led
.'citizens who are not members of the Com
mercial club to Join in the request that
the club be permitted to designate the
contestants for this trophy. Consequently

Evidence to Show Ilia Victim Was
George Pride, the negro saloon porter
on trial In the district court for shoot
ing and killing Lucius Francis, a colored
man who roomed at the Pride home at
10:'5 Avenue B, on the morning of Au
gust 11, laBt, claims that Francis at
tacked him with a razor and that he,
Pride, only shot when compelled to do
so In self-defense. Evidence was Intro
duced by the defense yesterday to show
that Francis had acted strangely and
sliowed signs of mental derangement.
John Turner, colored, a bartender at
the Davis saloon at the corner of Broad
way and Eleventh street, testified that
Pride was in the saloon early In the
morning of August 11 and that before
taking a car for Omaha left his revolver
with the witness. Shortly after 10 o'clock
Pride returned from Oinaha and went to
the saloon again, where Francis and
other colored men were at the time. Pride
got his revolver from Turner and walked
home and Francis followed. A few min
utes later Turner said he heard of the
shooting. The witness said that Francis
showed signs of being Insane that morn
ing and that he acted In an Irrational
Pride's story of the shooting was to
the effect that when he reached home
shortly before noon Francis followed and
on entering the house threatened to cut
Pride's head off with a raior. Suiting the
action to the word. Pride .ald, Francis
made a vicious lunge at him, which Pride
succeeded in evading and then Pride
struck Francis on the head with the butt
of his revolver. The blow, however, ac
cording to Pride's story, did not ptiase
Francis and the latter went at Pride
again with the razor. Fearing for his
life. Pride said, he -then shot Francis,
who ran out of the buck door and suc
ceeded in making his way to the south
side of the bridge over Indian creek,
ncur Broadway, before he dropped. Fran
cis was conveyed to the Edmundson hos
pital, where he died soon after.
Just before court adjourned for the
day Dr. Donald Macrae was examined as
to the unture of Francis' wounos.
Several witnesses have 'et to be ex
amined and It Is doubtful if the case will
get to the Jury Monday.
