BOTH KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS
ITtnu W Danced Bear Cat With
i.. Discharged Officer Admit She
' Hit Pellcemaa Over the Head
with Beer Bottle.
" After hearing the evidence and deliber
ating for less Uu.n a minute the city
commission voted unanimously to dismiss
Patrolman Ike Bellman from the service
tor conduct unbecoming an officer.
The charges against Bellman were that
he danced the bear cat with Mrs. Ed
Porter at Neilsen's park Sunday and In a
riot that broke up the dance he refused
to properly assist two fellow officers,
Patrolmen White and Tlmm, who were
beaten unconscious by a mob.
"Patrolmen White and Tlmm and their
wives testified, the evidence showing that
Bellman, while on duty, took oft his hel
inet and danced what Mrs. White called
the ."moochy." She didn't know if It was
the bear cat. Mrs. Timm said they "were
not dancing like the othrs."
Bellman testified it wasn't the bear cat
and J. I Kaley, his attorney, sought to
show that the apparent vulgarity of their
dancing was due to the ' fact that they
were fat. but Mrs. Timm said other big
dancers didn't wlggl around like Bell-

, Mr. Porter testified In Bellman's behalf.
Other witnesses who testified for Bellman

It appeared from tbe evidence that
Patrolman White called Mrs. Porter for
dancing the bear cat and told her she had
to cut It out. White said when Bellman
danced it he didn't feel like he ought to
call him down on the floor, but Intended
to speak to htm about It after the dance.
Of fleer Dances Bear Ct,
In the meantime one of the ' officers'
wires said: "What's the use of White
trying to prevent them dancing the bear
eat here when Bellman dances It" Bell
man was. on duty at the dance, but
Wb te and Timm were there In plain
lol ae, although they carried their
Suns and billies,
: Mrs. Porter, Angered at White for
calling her down, went to her husband
md declared ghe had been Insulted:
Bellman and Porter were standing with,
out the dance pavilion and Porter mo
tioned White to come to "him. .When
White came up Porter struck him and
the riot began.
" Officer Tlmm attempted "to quell , the
disturbance. He whacked 'Porter over
the head and ripped the shot out of the
billy. Then Tracy and Tlmm mixed,
rolled down the hlU and left White to
tola fate. ,;... - '
A woman, the same being Mrs, Porter,
according to the woman herself, struck
.White with a beer bottle. Somebody hit
blra in the eye. He was knocked half
conscious and staggering under the blows
of the Infuriated dancer drew his gun
nd stood, at bay.
. Bellman had disappeared. His wit
nesses testified that somebody bad yelled
that a murder was being committed down
tbe hill and Bellman had run down the
lilll. Another said a man yelled bloody
murder and Bellman run up the hilt.
After the riot Bellman placed Porter,
Sirs. Porter and Tracy under arrest
White and Tlmm had been beaten .Into
Insensibility by men and women with
pop and beer bottles. Bellman said he
abated a little while as to whether he
ould release the three he had arrested
and summon them to appear next day,
but decided the case was too serious and
called the patrol.
; Mrs. Porter was not allowed to testify.
Kaley wanted her to tell what White had
said to her, but the mayor ruled that
Bellman and not White waa on trial.

Second Assistant City Attorney Louis
Te Poet's cup of bitterness Is about full.

missioners thrust hjm Into a seat In the
city's section of the legally learned this
spring, v . -,, ....
, Then tribulations rose up and wrath
fully smote him on one cheek and the
other also. But he bore up manfully
under adversities. Only now does he
complain and his plaint Is this:
Circulators of paving petitions disregard
all legal etiquette In securing signers,
fraudulently, feloniously and with malice
prepense writing the names of property
holders without their consent or knowl
edge. - "For example," explained T Poel,
"here Is a petition signed by every prop
erty owner on a certain street declaring
that this one material and no other shall
be Used In the pavement. The petition
looks amply adequate. The names and af
fidavits were secured, according to the
date, the last day they could have been
legally secured, thereby coming within
the statute which salth that a man hath
a right to sign several petitions, but the
last be signeth shall be the only one of
which the law In Us majesty shall take
: "Put custom since time Immemorial and
a certain order which emanated from a
lately deceased, but leniently Inclined
and ,unlamented grand jury compels us
"This Is what we find! That only one
signature on that petition Is. the actual
signature of the property owner and Is
the name of a man who has died' since
he signed It. The others are forgeries."
This, Te Poel affirms, is not an ex
ceptional case, but the usual occurrence,
tie would like to Institute a reform,' but
is at a loss to know where and how to
begin on an evil that obtains among
practically all circulators of paving pe
titions. ;.. U --." A : y '
