- Not to Drop Fight. The campaign
for the commission form of govern
ment has not been entirely dropped.
The Municipal Voters league is still
retaining its rooms In the McCul
lough building for the present. The
secretary, RealiT Ottesen, has writ
ten Attorney General W. H. Byers,
at Des Moines, for his opinion on the
legality or illegality of the petition
which wa3 filed with the mayor. Al
though nothing definite has been
Baid up to the present time, it is
thought that if necessary the matter
will be carried int.o the courts. Some
of the members of the Municipal
Voters' league favor waiting for a
time before pushing the plan again,
while others favor the continuation
of the present fight. On the opinion
of the attorney general may depend
the decision whether or not to push
the campaign now or to wait.
Harper Found Guilty. Jack Harper,
whose efforts to mar the features of
both County Attorney Fred Vollmer
and Assistant County Attorney Frank
Cooper have made him a notorious
character in the past few days, was
found guilty as charged of assault
with intent to rob. It took the Jury
but a short time to reach a conclu
sion after the case was completed.
Harper Is the man indicted for hav
ing shoved two guns into the face of
Alfred Neugennauer, the butcher at
Second and Warren streets, and of
having attempted to hold him up in
mid-day. Since his arrest. Harper
has assisted in creating at least two
sensations at the court house. When
he was arraigned, he made an attack
on Attorney Cooper, and yesterday
he raised a welt under Mr. Vollmer's
eye when the cross examination be
came too hot for the defendant. Har
per took offense at one of Attorney
Vollmer's questions and bounded like
a cat out of his chair. Before he
could be stopped, he had swung a
blow to Mr. Vollmer's eye that has
placed a black mark under that
optic. Deputy Sheriff Marinan then
took a hand in the melee and one of
his short pokes to Harper's face,
quieted that gentleman. When or
der was restored the trial proceeded.
Harper has been an enigma for the
officers. His second offense in a
week has caused them to wonder
whether or not he is In his right

Two Stores Robbed. Burglars en
tered and robbed the Woodyatt music
store imd the Benson grocery on Fif

and made good their escape. An at
tempt was also made to burglarize the
People's Credit Clothing house in the
same block but the door of the build
ing was so firmly locked that entrance
was impossible. The men entered
both the grocery and music house
through rear windows. At the Benson
grocery they obtained $1.C1 in cash and
at the Woodyatt music store about $4
in change. At the Woodyatt store tse
men cut the screen and then forced a
rear window leading to the alley. At
the Benson grocery they broke out a
pane of .glass in a rear window and
then lifted the Iare wmdow. They
imay have also secured groceries and
other provisions here as the proprie
tor has not had time to take an inven
tory. At the People's Clothing store
they used a "jimmy" on the door but
were forced to abandon the attempt.
They then resorted to a skeleton key,
which was found In the lock by the
police this morning. The key would
r.ot unlock the door as the key to the
lock was left on the inside by the pro
prietor after closing up.
