KIPP AI1D MRS. OSBAR
Both Held For Burning the
OLD MANS NEW STORY.
Claims His Confession Was a
Makes It in Order to Get Out
Police Magistrate Stafford, at the
conclusion of the preliminary exami
nation at 4 o'clock yesterday alter
noon, held Mrs. Mary Osbar to the
grand jury in $3,600 bonds, charged
with arson. Joseph Hipp, the old
man who contested to Detective Hull
that he set fire to the Aldav home
stead at the instigation of Mrs. Os-
bar. was then placed under arrest,
likewise accused of arson. He
waived examination and was also
held to the grand jury in 93,600
Now Kipp says that the confession
that he made to Detective Hull was a
fake and was made in order that he
might regain his liberty, and be ex.
e mp ted from further annoyance ia
connection with the Alday affairs
This, Kipp says, was promised him
by Hull. Kipp says ne was ill when
he signed the alleged confession and
that he would have done almost
anything to get out of jail.
Kipp was the nest person arrested
after tne investigation oi tne burn'
ing of the Alday homestead was be
gun. He is an old man who had
wot Iced for the Aldays for a quarter
of a century. He was a member of
the family, so to speak. He came
and went when he pleased, and no
one paid any attention to him. He
said the warrant originally issued for
bis arrest for arson was sworn to by
Dotective Hull. Hull deniod Kipp's
entire story; said that the confession
was made freely, and that Kipp's ar
rest in the nrst p.ace was caused by
VY imam Alday, who, alter the old
man coniossedto the crime, with
drew his complaint.
1 lived within lour blocks or AI
day's house for 32 years," said
Kipp. "The first I knew of the born
ing of the house was at 5 o'clock in
the morning when my wife told me
that the firemen had come down from
the.hill. I was at the Alday house
the day before, and out down part of
a partition to put in a door. I left
about 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
Will Alday was at the. house, Mrs
Aiday having gone away."
Btr. Olbar'a Teallmonv.
Mrs. Osbar told her story about
tne n re. I ho aiternoon before the
burning of the house, she said, she
went to Davenport and visited over
night with a family of relatives
named Reimers, and that the first
knowledge she had of the fire was
when her son, William, came over
after her in a buggy. Mrs. Osbar
denied most emphatically any know
ledge oi a plan to nre the house, and
that the hrst she knew of there being
a suspicion of arson was a few
months ago when her sons started
suit to break their father's will. Mrs.
Osbar said the house, which was of
brick, had been repaired two years
previously and was in good condition
at the time of its destruction. She
said all her clothes, except what she
wore, were burned in the fire. The
clock and musio box were at the
jewelry store beirg repaired. Mrs.
Osbar admitted having a dispute
wun tne insurance oompany, refus
ing to accept the proffered $937,
holding that the house waa more
J. B. Oakleaf. of Moline, who rep
resented the company in which the
Alday property was insured, said
that 987 was paid over to Alday's
widow. William Alday aaid he was
present when his mother and Joseph
Kipp p'anned the burning of the
Officers C. A. Shallberg and N. G.
Starofeky and Albin Youngren,
James McQuade, Edward - Alday,
Mrs. Amelia Wendell, M. De Leu,
Herman Lajje and Claus Allen also
Peter Fries,' of this city, and Hans
Osbar, of Davenport, Mrs. 0bar's
husband, went her bail. Kipp went
to jail. Mrs. Oibar has instructed
her attorneys, Haas A Buford and J.
T. Kenworthy, to defend Kipp. Mrs.
Osbar is a large woman! She ia oool
and determined and does not seem
at all worried over the charge against
her. She is 48 years of age. She
says she lived with Alday 35 years
aa hia mistress, and under the same
roof with his wife, and that Edward
and William Alday, her two sons,
aged 25 and S3 years respectively,
were born ont of wedlock, Alday
marrying her 4 years ago, shortly
after the demise of his wife.
Mrs. Osbar seeded at the sugges
tion of State's Attorney Searle that
her husband was worth $30,000.
She said ah could not tell exactly
the value of the property ha left her.
She waa named as executor ia the
will, which left her everything.
The Uquest as to the cause cf
Adam Alday's death was resumed at
3 o'clock this afternoon at Coroner
Eck hart's office.

IT SHOCKED HIS NERVE8.
"I never realised fully the abom
inable condition of the river front."
said Aid. Gall to an Asccs represen
tative yesterday, "until I went down
there last night with a brother al
derman. I have always been one of
the firmest believers in the river
front improvement, and last year
when the projeot waa improperly
knocked out, 1 was one oi the lore
most friends and advocatea of it in
the council. I am favorable to every
form of improvement, and conse
quently have been for the the new
levee, because I thought it would be
a good thing for the town, but I
never knew the abominable condition
it was in until I made the trip down
there I apeak of. Why. it is not
only disgraceful tn appearance, but
it is unhealthy in the extreme. Let
any citisen take a walk down there
and look at the exposed sewer open
ings and get a whiff of the odors that
emanate from the same, and he will
wonder how the city haa come to
neglect its duty there as long as it
"I knew the levee needed atten
tion, but I did not realize lta actual
nerve-shocking condition until my
recent investigation. The council
has no more important duty before
it than this levee improvement en
terprise, and it should be under
taken without delay."

Joseph Fleishman, a young man

parting with $2 for a brass check to
bang on his favored canine s neck
But the officers reminded him of the
consequences and he finally agreed
to pay, maktng an engagement
with umoer Kyan, who sallies
around in the business seotions day
times. The officer was there at the
appointed hour, but Fleishman and
his poodle were not. Yesterday
afternoon Officer Ryan nabbed Fleish
man on Second avenue and Nine
teenth street. He said he would not
pay the dog tax and defied the cop
per to arrest him. The patrol was
called and Fleishman was given a
ride to headquarters, from whence he
was taken to Magistrate Stafford's
office by Chief Pender. Fleishman
promised to pay the tax on hia dog
if the judge would release him. He
did so, and Fleishman raised the
money at once. -
