Yesterday James Troy, indicted on
the charge of grand larceny, in con
nection with the robbery of $!5 from
the safe in F. H. Maas' livery barn
office, was brought into court, upon his
plea of guilty, to receive sentence.

Little by little the police are begin
ning to find clues which may event
ually lead to the solving of the deep
mystery as to who made the murder
ous assault upon Mrs. Ada Manuel,
while that lady was reposing in sleep
in her apartments on LeClaire street
just south of Fourth. As time elapses
and the meager clues which have been
found are put together, the finger of
guilt points more strongly than ever
upon the A 1 hers family who lived in
the same house with Mrs. Manuel. Of
fleers Sanford and Quinn have been
detailed upon the case and have al
ready did much good work in connec
tion therewith and before they cease
their labors, the mystery will undoubt
edly be cleared to .1 large extent. One
thing has already been established
and that is to the effect that the Al
bers apartments were a hiding place
for much stolen plunder. In the bot
tom of a trunk belonging to Henry Al
bers, was found a set of harness which
had been stolen some five weeks ago
from the Frey livery barn. Other ar
ticles, fresh from the counters of stores
were also found In this trunk and the
police are lead to believe that these
were also stolen. For several days
Albers worked for Henry Drockmann.
the commission merchant, and among
the things found in the trunk were a
quantity of large needles such as are
used In sewing up sacks of potatoes
and onions. The bank book recovered
by the police and which showed Mrs.
Manuel to have $4ml to her credit fn
the Union Savings bank, was found
concealed in a large family bible in
the room occupied by the Albers. Mrs.
Manuel insists that she kept the book
in the bottom of her trunk and is un
able the understand how it got on
the Albers side of the house.
Iowa City Interurban.

Potatoes Come Down.
One of the biggest drops in potatoes
known in Davenport for many years,
took place at 9 o'clock Wednesday
evening when the bottom fell out of
a mammoth stock of over 18,000 bush
els stored in the Henry Brockman
storeroom at 201 East Second street.
The potatoes had been gathered by
Mr. Brockman for the Potato Buyer's
union and were to have been shipped
to Oklahoma. Until the time for their
shipment arrived, they were stored in
the above building. About 9 o'clock
the flooring gave way under the weight
of the potatoes and all of them went
crashing down into the cellar where
they still remain.

At a meeting of the members of the
First Baptist church Wednesday ev
ening after prayer meeting It was
unanimouslv voted to extend a call to
Rev. B. F. Martin, of Joliet, to the pas
torate of the local church to succeed
Rev. C. W. Spencer, who concluded
his pastorate in this city last Sunday.
Rev. Dr Martin is between 40 and oO
years, married, and has a family, and
has occunied the pulpit of the church
as recently as three weeks ago, when
he made such a favorable impression
that the church was content to call
him after considering but two men.
Mr. Martin is regarded as a man of
the progressive, active character that
both Pastor Bryant and Pastor Spen
cer have displayed, and the First
church here is eager to receive his re
ply of acceptance In the belief that
he will carry the church forward as it
has moved tn recent years.

Mayor Going Away.
Mayor C. P. Skinner is in so serious
a condition from the effects of a three
weeks' siege with pleurisy that he has
been advised by all the physicians who
have been in attendance on him that
he must leave this climate as soon as
he is able to travel. It will be good
news to his many friends in the city
that he is reported much better, and
the expectation now is that with his
family he will leave Moline early in
December to spend the winter in a
warm and dry climate, possibly Sn
Arizona, toward which he was at
tracted a year ago.

Burglars Wednesday night attempt
ed to enter the saloon of John Carlson,
on Third avenue between Sixteenth
and Seventeenth streets, but were un
successful in their decidedly persist
ent effort. Investigation of the rear
door of the saloon shows that a dozen
or more holes were bored through the
panel, in order to release the cross
bar. The crossbar w as found upon the
floor. Mr. Burglar evidently figured
that if he got that crossbar down he
had the saloon at his feet. But there
was another crossbar which effectually
blocked his entrance. Unsuccessful in
his attempt to rob the saloon of Carl
son. Mr. Burglar proceeded to the sa
loon of C. Anderson, on Sixth avenue
and Fifteenth street, and there secur
ed entrance through a rear door by the
same means that he employed at the
first place. A dozen inch holes were
bored through the door panel, and
through the hole thus made the key
was reached and turned. Only a few-
cents were secured at Mr. Anderson's
place, as he had had experience with
burglars ere this and kept his money
where it couldn't be reached.
