An application was made In the district
court yesterday for the dismissal of the
indictment against Fred Fowler, accus
ing him of Improper conduct with a
young girl. The case was tried in May,
1910, and the jury failed to agree. A
period of more than two years has
slapsed, which entitles the defendant to
demand a dismissal of the indictment.
He states in his application that he la
about to go into business and this old
charge, which is alleged to have been
without foundation, hangs over him as

Supreme Court Holds
With Pepper's Views
Fllckinger brothers yesterday received
notice of the sustaining by the supreme
court of their appeal In the case of
Koepke against Pepper, in which $3,000
was Involved. The case was tried in
Koepke was a wealthy,; retired farmer,
and when he moved to Denlson, leased
from Pepper a lot and building (or three
years, giving a rental note for the en
tire period amounting to $3,000. , The
building was used for saloon purposes,
but within elx months was burned down.
Koepke then refused ' to pay any more
rent. Pepper sold the note to parties
living in Idaho and they brought suit and
recovered In full. Koepke then brought
suit against Pepper for $8,000, alleging
that the saloon hs had bought was il
legally operated for the reason that then,
had never been secured a petition of con
sent and that consequently he could not
recover for the lease of the premises.
The case was fought hard and after the
evidence was in both side moved ' for
judgment. The Crawford county judge
sustained the motion of the defendant and
rendered against Koepke, whose attor
neys appealed to the supreme court. The
court held that the lease contract was
void on account of the illegal character
of the business. ' ' '

Water Board Holds
Session with Council .
On Mooted Problem
The water board met the city council as
a committee of the whole last evening
lor the. puipose of receiving from the
council a number of complaints that had
been filed by property owners concerning
water service and to talk over in a
friendly way the official relations that
exist between the council and the board.
Superintendent Etnyre and Commissioners
Jensen and Hart and Mayor Maloney and
several of the aldermen wero present.
The relationship of the two organisations
has been a delicate question ever since
the board was formed, and at the sug
gestion of Msyor Maloney last evening
City Solicitor Stuart was called upon to
furnish a written opinion basec upon the
state law creating the board.
None of the complainants who had filed
their requests with the council .was pres
ent, but Alderman Boyer spoke for a
number of them. The complaint that
water had not been turned Into the new
mains on Harrison street was explained
by the board to be due to the fact that
the water cannot be turned until the
street ts filled, ss the main lies above
ground In several places, making it
obviously impossible to make service con
nections. It was stated that whenever
the street Is filled the connections will
be made and the water turned on.
The complaint of M. H. Bailey and
others on Logan street that they had been
required to pay for running near lead
pipes from the main to the curb and an
additional charge of $160 for tapping the
main was presented and discussed. The
apparent Injustice of the charge lay In
the faot that there was already a two
inch main there which was supplying
satisfactory service and when the' six
inch main was laid sorvloe through the
smaller pipe was discontinued, necessitat
ing new connections all along the street
The water board members said that the
rules adopted by the board required lead
pipes for all service connections on streets
where paving was ordered and that the
cost of tapping was also required by the
rules to be' charged to the property.
After an Informal discussion the wster
board requested that all complaints sub
mitted to the council officially or oon
flded to the members be immediately
passed along to the board. In reply to
some of the criticisms about the water
board not meeting or nobody knowing
where or when It meets, It was stated
that the board meets every Monday morn
ing In the water works office arid remains
In session from 10 o'clock until the busi
ness is finished if it tskes all day.
An application signed by a number of
cltlsens to have a water main laid on
Avenue O from Eighth east to Sixth
street was turned over to the board.

VARIOUS MEDIUMS OF DISEASE
Conservation of Human Life Receiv
ing Belated Attention from
. Government -Sonrcra of
The diseases, injuries and causes of
death to which workers in certain In
dustries are peculiarly exposed are dis
cussed. The miner suffers from diseases of the
lungs brought on by inhalation of dust,
while the steel worker suffers in the
ssme way from minute particles of steel.
Oust Is also a disease medium among
many factory workers, as in textile
shops, flour mills, dye and stone works.
Oas and fumes from coal cause their
own special disorders. Other ailments
are brought about by the vapor or gases
from petroleum, coke, acids, dyes, gaso
line and anallne preparations. Workers
In metals suffer from lead, tin, bronse,
mercury, brass and sine poisoning.
Each particular Industry has its own
distinctive injuries. Some lines are more
hasardous than others. In mining cave
ins, faUlng coal and fire damp are the
most common causes of Injury and death.
Between the years of 1898 and 1900 over
$0,000 miners were killed and 80.000 in
jured in the United States.
In the year 1910 there were more than
S5.000 deaths from Industrial accidents,
while over 800,000 more men were In
jured during the same ttme. This Is 250,
000 more than the killed and wounded dur
ths entire course of the Russo-Jspaness
war. Indeed, more men are killed and
maimed on American railroads each year
than the Boers and English lost during
their three years' fighting.
Dr. Joslah. Strong of the Institute of
Social Service estimates that the casual
ties In this country each yesr are equal
to the average annual casualties of the
war of the rebellion, the war In the Phil
ippines and the Jlusso-Japanese war com
bined. Figures vary In different countries.
The American mortality is higher In In
According to statistics compiled by the
Prussian government recently In regard
to mortality ,in single trade groups, the
report says: ,
The most unfavorable mortality (14.25
per 1,000) of the male workers is shown
by commerce. Agriculture ts only a Uttle
more faforable (14.01), while Industry has
the extraordinary advantage of only 11.60
per 1,000." i
. This picture is altered; however, If In
plaoe of the entire mortality that for the
various ages Is considered. Looked at In
this way agriculture presents the most
favorable conditions at all ages; the mor
tality of persons engaged In Industry is
about 15 to 25 per cent higher at the
ages from 16 to 40, and at older ages
about 40 to (0 per cent higher than in
agriculture. ' '. '

Germany, Great Britain, Austria, Italy
and France have recognised the Impor
tance of studying Industrial diseases, and
by careful Inspection and by eliminating
defective methods and dangerous ma
chinery efficiency has been Increased and
the percentage of industrial illness re
duced. Moving? for Betterment.
Nothing was done In this country in
the matter until June, 1910, when a con
ference on industrial diseases was hsld
In Chicago which resulted in individual
states taking up the subject. Already
California. Connecticut, Illinois, New
York, Michigan . and Wisconsin have
made laws requiring physicians to make
reports . on occupational diseases. The
diseases specified are anthrax, caisson
disease or the "bends" and lead, phos
phorus, arsenlo and mercury poisoning.
Mercurial and phosphorous poisoning
are of frequent occurrence among work
Ingmen wherever these poisonous sub
stances are employed. "Phossy Jaw" is
not Infrequent among those engaged In
the manufacture of matches. A writer
In the Medical Council thus characterizes
the disease: Phosphorus necrosis, or
phossy jaw, an Incurable dlaease, re
lieved only by curettage of the Infected
bone, or more or less extensive excision
of the maxillae. It Is occasionally neces
sary to remove the entire jaw, and even
then recurrence is the rule.
The Esch- bill, which places prohibit
ive internal revenue tax on matches
made with poisonous phosphorus, has
just passed both houses of congrees and
was signed by . President Taft, and as
soon as tht effect of such a law Is felt
cases of phossy jaw will rapidly di
minish. . ,
Other forms of industrial diseases are
sulphide of carbon, poisoning, most no
tlcable among rubber workers, caisson
dlsesse, bends, writer's and telegrapher's
cramps, disease caused by dust and those
common to electrical and chemical work
Germany has industrial insurance
against sickness, accident, invalidism and
old age. All persons regularly employed
In factories, mines, on railways and in
other Industrial concerns, shop assistants,
employes in state services, employes of
lswyers, etc., overseers, engineers, etc.,
must be Insured, while those intermit
tently employed, those in dependent posi
tions, employes of ths empire (army and
navy), etc, who are otherwise entitled to
pensions and free medical aid, are ex
empted. Other persons, like servants,
children, etc., may or may not be in
A workman whose wages are $0 per
week pays 12 cents a week insurance. If
ill he receives $3 and medical attend
ance and medicine. He can receive this
amount for thirteen weeks. The, funeral
Ind.omnlty Is not less than $20.
; Accident Insurance,- obligatory upon
all employes receiving less than 17.80 per
week, is met by employers. Compensa
tion begins thirteen weeks after the Acci
dent, the sick fund csrlng for the In
jured man up to that time. In case of
fatal accidents one-fifteenth of the yearly
earnings is paid, with a minimum of
$12.50. and a pension to the widow until
death or remarriage of 30 per cent of the
earnings and also to every child up to
the fifteenth year. -
Invalidism and old age Insurance sub
jects to compulsory Insurance after six
teen years of age all persons regularly
working for wages In every branch of
trade, managing officials and commercial
assistants with regular salaries up to
$'00. ' This Insurance fund is .formed by
equal contributions from employers and
employes, and an imperial subsidy
amounting to $12.30 per annum Is granted
to every annuity.
Poisoning from metals Is on? of the
commonest forms of industrial disease
and the symptoms of lead colic, palsy
and tremor are noticeable, even to the
untrained eye.' In (he smelting of lead
ere. In the manufacture of red and white
lead, In the use of paints. In the printing
trade. In file cutting, In enameling, In
the manufacture of china and earthen
ware, In glassmaking and in all work
where paint Is used, such as carriage
making, shipbuilding or house decorating,'
and among plumbers the exposure of the
laborer is constant.
Lead of Itself can cause any kind of
physical disease and can be considered in
the words of Beer as a metallic nar
cotic and stands In similar position to
that of alcohol.
Shrumpf and Zabet take up the sub
ject of lead poisoning In typesetters an
bring out the Interesting tact that a true
lead intoxication la seldom met with (n
this profession, although lead poisoning
Is frequent enough. On account of the
alloy used an antimony poisoning fol
