Contagious Disease is Sent to
Detention Hospital.
From Monday's Dally
Sixteen prisoners were arraigned
before Judge Kirby in police court
this morning, some for drunks, dis
turbance of the peace, fighting, and
being inmates of disorderly houses.
The most perculiar of the sentences
was that against Sadie Canterbu:
notorious Character of Smoky Row,
woh is said to be afflicted with an
lnourable disease. According to
orders of Judge Roberts, persons of
this sort cannot be confined in the
county Jail. Judge Kirby believes that
the only thing that can be done with
Sadie is to send her to the pest house
tod keep her there under guard.
Will Not Make Garden
Sadie said she would not stay there
unless securely locked up or a guard
with a gun stationed there.
"I will not stay there," said she,
and as for me making a garden as
suggested by your honor, I will do
nothing of the kind."
"Put her on bread and water,, raid
the court,, if she refuses to work.
"I can stand bread and water as
long as you waD1. to give it to me,"
said she.
Sadie had been arrested at the
home of EJd. Huddleston, who had in
hiscompany, Mabel Wakefield and Ed.
Simms. All but Sadie pleaded not
guilty and their hearing will take
place tonight at 7 o'clock.
Battered Head.
John Anderson, colored, came be
fore the court with a bandaged head
and one ear nearly severed from his
head. He said he didn't know what
happened down in the East End Sat
urday night when he was assualted.
"I had not been drinking said he,
but was walking along attending to
my business when someone, a colored
man, assaulted me from the rear. He
struck me with a heavy instrument
than dazed me. I hardly knew what
happened after that."
Johnson was allowed to go on the
promise to pay his doctor's bill
amounting to ?6.

FRANK BLAGHLY
DID NOT DROWN
MAN WAS IN DES MOINES WHEN
OFFICERS WERE DRAG
GING RIVER.
Surprised that he had caused a sen
sation when his clothes were found
Friday morning near the red house
on the bank of the head race, Frank
Blachly, who suddenly disappeared on
Thursday night, came to police head
quarters today.
He said he had been in Des Moines
and knew nothing about the officers
dragging the river for his supposed
dead body until a friend from Ottum
wa told him about it. He then im
mediately called Chief Gallagher yes
terday and informed him of his-safe
arrival at Des Moines. Instead of
traveling by water he said he traveled
by rail.
Blachly's Story.
Blachly said today that he had de
cided late Thursday afternoon to go
to Des Moines and changed his clothes
suddenly. He said he left the pack
age of old clothes at the depot and
believes that someone might have
stolen them and placed them on the
river bank. Blachly said he had a
pair of trousers in the package, but
these could not be found.
Just before the train arrived Thurs
day evening Blachly said he had de
sired a note to be taken to a relative
of his, but as he was writing it the
train came in and he didn't have time
to finish it.
SHORT CHANGE
PASSENGER RATE
INTERSTATE TARIFFS TAKE
SLIGHT RISE—EVEN MONEY
AT TRAVELERS' COST
People, who buy passenger tickets
today will find, in some cases, that
they are paying more for a ticket to
certain points than was charged here
tofore. This is on account of the put
ting into effect of the new interstate
schedule on the 1st of March. There
is no requirement for a flat two-cent
rate in interstate business, but here
for intra and interstate business.
Beginning today all interstate busi
ness will be charged on an even money
basis, which will make the handling of
it much more convenient.
To interstate points, where the pres
ent two-cent rate figures out even
money—that Is, sums ending in naught

BURLINGTON
POTS OP ICE
SPRING CLEAN UP BEGINS—
JOHNSON MADE SUPERIN
TENDENT OF TERMINALS.
Notwithstanding the balmy air that
is at present prevailing here, the Bur
lington is in the midst of the annual
ice packing. This is no small item
with the Burlington at this point, as
the amount required to fill the de
mand for the cooling of refrigerators,
drinking water tanks on cars, in de
pots and offices, as well as the many
other purposes for which it Is used,
is very large.
The capacity of the ice house here
is 2,000 tons. This ice is being1 cut
this year from Lake Pepin in Wis
consin, on the La Crosse division. The
shipment of the ice to this city be
gan Saturday and it is expected that
the packing of it will be completed
by tomorrow. The Chariton ice house
will then be filled, and they will re
quire about 700 tons.
Terminal Change.
The superintendency of the terminal
at. St. Louis has been changed, due to
the resignation of J. A. Somerville,
who has gone to Kansas City to be
come superintendent of terminals of
the Missouri Pacific. Mr. Somerville
is a brother-in-law of W. T. Wilkinson.
The order as received by the local
office of the change, came to hand to
day and is as follows: Effective Mar.
1, F. L. Johnson becomes superintend
ent of terminals at St. Louis, vice J.
A. Somerville, resigned to accept ser
vice with another company. The or
der emanates from G. S. Ross, gener
al superintendent, and F. E. Ward,
general manager of the Burlington.
Spring Clean up.
Beginning today, the Burlington
commenced its annual spring clean
up along this division. This rule is as
strictly adhered to as is house clean
ing'with the most fastidious house
keeper.
As the local freight trains left here
this morning each of them carried one
or two extra cars for the conveyance
of all scray iron and waste material
along the division. This material is
gathered up and brought, to some cen
tral place, generally the division ter
minal, where it is assorted over and
what is worth saving is used, and the
balance destroyed.
Railroad Personals.
Brakeman Clark Richads of the
Burlington is off duty for a few days.

HAMILTON IS DEAD
Man Made Famous by "Yellow Dog"
Fund Expose Found Lifeless
In His Bed.
Albany, March, 2.—Andrew Hamil
ton, who came into prominence during
the life insurance investigation two
and one-half years ago in connection
with the "yellow dog" fund died sud
denly at his hgme in this city Sun
day night.
Mr. Hamilton who formerly was
counsel to the New York Life and
other insurance companies, and in
charge for many years of insurance
litigation and legislative matters in
all parts of this country and Canada,
was found dead in bed Sunday morn
ing. He was about the city yesterday
afternoon and last night, apparently in
normal health, and his death was en
tirely unexpected, although he has
been failing to some extent ever since
the death of Mrs. Hamilton last July.
An autopsy, disclosed an acute di
lation of the heart, which must have
caused practically instaneous death at
some time during the night.

ANEW STOKER
BEING TRIED
THE BURLINGTON EXPERIMENTS
WITH AUTOMATIC DEVICE
FOR LOCOMOTIVES.
The new automatic stoker which
will probably revolutionize railroading
is being given an official test on the
Burlington hill. The appliance Eas
been fitted to engine No. 2132, and aft
er weeks of preparation was brought
out of the shops of West Burlington
Saturday. Engineer Jake Christ man
brought the large locomotive to the
city last night.
She made the trip up the hill and
during the day she paced back and
forth between West Burlington and
Danville.
The engine is one of the large type
used in pulling long freight trains.
Under the firebox has been placed a
large fan which is connected with the
firebox, supplying what is known as
forced draft. The former door to the
firebox has been bolted shut and the
coal is fed to the fire by means of
"worms." The slack coal in the ten
der drops into a trough, where it is
taken up and carried to the firebox.
®n^er, '^e. firebox from be-
low, the coal being fed in this way
from the bottom instead of the top.
The stoker has worked well so far,
but many adjustments were necessary
to get the appliance in perfect shape.
There will probably be some changes
made yet before it is satisfactory.
The stoker does not do away with
the services of the fireman, but merely
relieves him of some of the heavy
work. During the tests the fireman
was able t.to sit on the seat and watch
his oil cups and water guage, instead
of getting down and using the shovel.
The stoker is not intended to replace
the fireman, as two men on an engine
will always be necessary it is merely
a money saver.
The patent will enable the company
to utilize the slack coal, which up to
this time has gone to waste. The fuel
bills will be cut in two, which means
a big saving in operating a road the
size of the Burlington.
So far engine No. 2132 has been run
ning by herself and has not yet been
tested as to the hauling power and ca
pacity to make steam with a long
train behind it. The locomotive will be
put. through all kinds of paces before
the tests are concluded.
Barnum, the inventor, is ill and was
not able to personally supervise the
tests.
STATE OFFICER
HERE SATURDAY
A meeting of the officers of the vari
ous school districts throughout the
county was held Saturday afternoon
in the Wapello county court house.
The meeting was called to order to
meet John F. Riggs, state superinten
dent of schools, who was in the city
to confer with the school directors, re
garding the betterment of the school
system and the arrangement on a
more economic basis.
The meeting took place in the
small court room. Every seat was
filled and many had to stand in order
to hear the talk delivered by Superin
tendent Riggs. In the course of his
remarks the speaker submitted a
chart of a county, in which the dis
tricts were mapped out. I?y the aid
of this chart he was enabled to make
more clear many cf the features he
suggested for the bettermen of school
conditions.
Asks Consolidation.
The chief recommendation made by
the state superintendent, was that the
districts, where they found it practic
able, should consolidate for the econ
omy and reduction of expense to each
in cost of maintenance. By the con
solidation of some of the districts, th-3
speaker stated that the cost of educa
tion for the children in the country
districts, would be reduced consider
ably.
"The necessity of teachers would
be lessened by this means and as
they have proven a scarcity in the
country districts, much good would be
thus accomplished," said the speaker.
The expense of this plan could be ad
Justed by the school directors of th-i
consolidating districts without any
trouble. The same arrangement could
be made between counties where dis
tricts lie close to the county line.
Discuss Salaries Question.
Much discussion over teachers' sal
aries took place, also the general effi
ciency of the teachers available at
present for country Schools. The
chief difficulty met with by the dis
trict school directors seemed to be the
keeping or retention of teachers after
they had been once secured. The
various methods in vogue by the dif
ferent ,boards for the selection of
teachers was discussed, with the view
of ascertaining the best means where
by to obtain suitable teachers for
country schools. The meeting contin
ued throughout the afternoon and was
participated in by a large and interest
ed body.

BAPTISED IN
ICE COLD WATER
JAKE AND CHARLES TAYLOR
WERE IMMERSED it* DES
MOINES RIVER.
From Monday's Daily.
Batismal services were conducted
yesterday at the Davis street Chris
tain church at 3:45 p. m., and at the
river bank at the end of Davis street
at 4:30 m.
Five persons who have been con
verted during the revival meetings
held at Fry's hall by the Church of
Christ, were baptised, three at the
church and two in the river. Miss
Bertha Hobbs, Joseph Hobbs and W.
A. Neal -mere baptised in the church.
A large number were present and
Evangelist J. C. Bunn, who is conduct
ing the revival meeting has charge of
the baptising, assisted by Evangelist
W. P. Gray.
After tjie baptismal services in the
church they then proceeded to the
river where Jake Taylor and Charles
Taylor were Immersed in the icy
waters of the Des Moines, by Evange

ICE GORGES
GIVING AWAY
DYNAMITE, ASSISTED BY OLD SOL
HAS OPENED CHANNEL
THROUGH HUGE GORGE.
It is thought that by t.lie large
amount of ice seen floating down the
river this morning that the ice gorges
up the river are giving away. The
river at about 5 o'clock this morning
was thickly dotted with large cakes
of ice floating down stream, more
than has been seen since the river has
been up.
Work on the dike of the bridge
over the Des Moines river near Chilll
cothe, which is being engineered by
C. H. Chidester, has been suspended,
owing to the huge ice gorge Just
above in the river, but it is thought
that in a few days the work will be
resumed. The river is about at a
stand now, if anything it has fallen a
little, and all fear of a flood is van
ishing. A channel is reported to have
been effected by dynamite through
the center of the huge ice gorge in
the Raccoon river near Des Moines,
greatly to the relief of the inhabitants
of the lowlands in that locality.
A report from Eddyville says the
river has commenced another rise
and is out cfver the bottom lands
across the bridge. People did not ex
pect this rise as the river seemed to
be going down rapidly Saturday aft
ernoon.
