The New Vork maximum U'9C Of TIDE STEALS MAN'S LEG, WHILE HE SWIMS. San Francisco. Cal., July 5. James Bourke, miner, from Good springs, Nev., and his wooden leg marched down to the beach here for a look around. Bourke says he hummed the theme of "Dear Old Pal of Mine" to his wooden leg long before the song of that title gained its present popularity. The bathing scenes fascinated Bourke. He heard the children scream with glee when the tide tickled their toes. He hesitated about taking a dip on account of his wooden Jeg, which, among other virtues, posesses the buoyancy of a life preserver. So he donned a bath ing suit and, arriving near the water line, parted company wi(h his woo3 en leg. After a half hour's fling in the, tide he returned to the beach to assemble himself. His white pine pal was gone. There was no mystery about it, he say. The tide mocked him as it told him about stealing his wooden leg. " Bourke floundered 'to the bath house, dressed, borrowed a lantern, and then sat dowji on the beach to await the possible return of his wooden leg on the flood tide.

PROSECUTION WILL ASK FOR DEATH PENALTY Circumstantial Evidence, In troduced at Coroner's In quest and Given to Grand Jury, Leads to Indictment. Creston, la., July 5. (By a Spe cial Correspondent.) The trial of Roy Emerson, who is charged with the murder of his mother, Mrs. Kate Emerson, opens - next Tuesday at Mt. Ayr, where the case was taken on the request of the defendant's attorneys for a change of venue. Attorneys for hoth sides have made extensive preparation for the trial, hoth prosecution and defense have an able array of legal talent and the hardest fought murder ca-se in the history of this section of the state is expected. County Attorney E. L. Carroll of this city will be assisted in the prosecution of the case by D. W. Higbce of Creston and Frank Fuller of Mt. Ayr, brother of Judge Homer Fuller, who will occupy the bench. The lawyers for the defense are Thos. L. Max well and Kenneth Davenport of Creston, Judge Mitchell of Council Bluffs and Robert Spence and H. C. Beard of Mt. Ayr. Find Body in Shaft. The tragedy, of which the trial is the final chapter, was one of the most shocking that ever occurred in this community. On the evening of May 6, the body of Mrs. Kate Emerson was found it the foot of the elevator shaft in; the undertak ing establishment by the son, Roy, who with a couple of his employees had gone down to the basement of the building to examine a body which they had kept for a number of days. Mrs. Emerson's skull was broken in three places, one on each side and one in the back of the head. In addition both legs were broken just above the ankles. The elevator was standing at the second floor of the building, a height of about 20 feet from the foot of the shaft. Drs. J. W. and Orlo Coakley, joint owners with the Emerson estate of the building, in which their office adjoins the undertaking parlors, were called immediately, and after an examination announced that death had occurred two or three hours previous to the discovery of the body. Both physicians scorned the theory of accident and advanced opinions of murder. For the greater part of two days, with excitement running high in Creston. a coroner's jury heard evi dence of quarrels between Roy and his mother, threats which Mrs. Em (Contlnurd on Page Two, Column Three.)

SPECIAL SESSION OFLEGISLATURE TO MEET JULY 28 Governor Considers Epworth Assembly in Fixing Date; Consults Members. Lincoln, July 5. The special ses sion of the legislature will be called for Monday, July 28, according to a statement made by Governor Mc Kelvie Saturday. The governor had about decided upon July 21, a- week earlier, but farmer members were of the opinion that July 28 would be a better date, and if no objection is made, that will be the time for the session to convene. The governor also has in mind the big Epworth assembly, which will be in session that week, and will enable the families of the mem bers to take in the rich treats always found on the program of the assem bly, and also enable the members to use their evenings there. Lowden to Speak. One of the addresses for the week will be by Governor Lowden of Illi nois, and it might not be beyond the possibilities that the Illinois governor might be asked to ad dress the legislature upon topics in teresting to the members. Governor McKelvie also gives reason for postponing the date of the convening of the special ses sion that the state board of equali zation meets the week beginning July 21 and will likely be in session all the week. Writes Each Member. Governor McKelvie has addressed a letter to each member of the leg islature and if his plan meets with the approval of a majority he will call the session for July 28. Just what will be in the call with thj exception of ratification of the national constitutional amendment relating to universal suffrage and amendments to the code law where the provisions of the law conflict, the governor was not prepared to say. That will be referred to later. It is probable that the senate will have to meet in the supreme court chamber -as the senate chamber has been taken over by the engineering department and the automobile de partment.

"At the last mo ment Frieda interposed objections and I proposed that we take an automobile ride to some quiet spot where we could talk things over. Reaching a lonely spot, I started pleading with her to marry me at oitce. "She remained obdurate and told me that she was expecting to be come a mother and that she had de cided to undergo a surgical opera tion rather than marry me. That made me mad. I lost my head and almost before I knew it, had snatched a revolver which was kept in the machine as protection against highwaymen and shot her through the head. I believe she di'ed almost instantly. "For nearly two hours I drove with Frieda lying beside me. Then it dawned on me what a horrible deed I had done. I decided the best thing to do was to bring the body to the police station and surrender." ' New, who is 30 years old, is a graduate of an Indiana military academy. He said he later attended Notre Dame university. He met Miss Lesser at a local manufactur ing plant, where he was employed as a truck driver and she as a stenog rapher.

The Good Old Summer Time ASKS $45,000 A YEAR TO HANDLE CITY GARBAGE City Commissioners to Take Up Question of Awarding Contract Monday; Seeks Injunctions Against 15. The garbage question is causing the mayor and city commissioners considerable concern. The city council committee of the whole Monday morning will con sider whether Henry Pollack should be paid $45,000 a year for five years for collection and disposal of gar bage, according to his bid received last week. The city legal department has gone into district court to restrain various restaurant and hotel propri etors from selling their garbage by private contracts and for their own pecuniary benefits, according to an act of the recent legislature. The city attorney contends that this legislative measure is only a "scrap of papef" insofar as its legality is concerned, and he is ready to test it in the courts. Some of the big hotel and restau rant men assert that their garbage for the period of a year is a valuable by-product of , their business and they should have the right to dispose of it as they please. The city legal department takes the position that under the police powers of the city no discrimination can be shown to ward any class in connection with the collection and disposal of gar bage. Therefore, a legal battle im pends. The injunction sought by the city is directed against the proprietors (Continued on Pace Three, Column Three.)
