W Ct f. A SATURDAY, February 27, 1909. MARSHAL BILL IS INTRODUCED IE REPRESENTATIVE INMAN OF FLOYD COUNTY FATHERS MEASURE WHICH WILL BE PUSHED ON FLOOR BY RANKIN. SUNDAY MEASURE BEFORE COMMITTEE DES MOINES PEOPLE ARGUE FOR LEGISLATION TO PRESERVE CHARACTER OF THE AMERICAN 8ABBATH. Des Moines Bureau of The Ottumwa Courier. Des Moines, Feb. 25. The state marshal bill made Its ap ipearance in the house today, having (been Introduced by Representative In man of Floyd county. Mr. Rankin, representing the State Marshal clubs, is here to take charge of the bill. The senate this mofning received the report of the cities and towns ad verse to the "Van Law bill to permit the Investigation of public service cor porations. The bill was placed on the calendar and ordered printed in the Journal and this will bring the fight on the floor to pass the bill. Both houses of the legislature ad journed today for a recess until next Wednesday. The senate passed the optometry bill by a vote of 33 to 8, after several ineffectual attempts •were made to have the board made up of a majority of doctors. Health Secretary Criticised. In the house there was harsh criti cism of Secretary Thomas of the state board of health and Secretary David eon of the state executive council for alleged discourtesy to members and refusal to give out information and aid the departments. The house passed the senate bill io authorize tax aid for libraries and hospitals, the bill, to change the name of the poor farms to county homes, the bill to require the annual cutting of hedges along roads and several bills relating to voting for franchises in .cities. The senate passed the bill appropriating $10,000 for 3.000 copies of the soldiers' roster and several minor bills. The Sunday Observance Measures. The showing in favor of the bill for the better observance of the Sabbath day, as made before the house com mittee Wednesday afternoon, was much stronger than the opponents of the bill had anticipated. Amon& those •who spoke in favor of some legisla tion along the line of preserving tho character of the American Sabbath •was Henry Wallace, also W. B. Majtin F. S. Dunshee and Rev. H. Hansen, The latter read a carefully prepared argument for the bill in which he took the position that it was not giving any new standing to the Sabbath but rath er a measure for protecting a day al ready established and recognized in Iowa law. Mr. Wallace pointed to the fact that every state now has lawa safeguarding the Sabbath. Mr. Martin, formerly secretary of state, strongly supported the measure. The letter from the secretary of the actors' union to Senator Proudfoot was read in which it was made very plain that the actors and actresses desire a rest day. A question was asked as to whether or not there is not already sufficient law and that the local au thorities can prevent theatrical enter tainments if they desire, but in an swer to this it was stated that the at torney general of the state is of opin ion that there is not now actual au thority for forbidding theatres on Sun day and the city authorities in Des Moines and most of the cities of tho state take this view. The advocates of the bill called special attention to the fact that the only purpose of the Mere dith bill, which was under considera tion, was to put a stop to those things •which are on a purely commerlcal ba sis and thus to eliminate the money making features of Sabbath breaking. The Railroad Bills. It is stated now that tho railroads Headache, Backache, Sideache, A Worn-out Feeling. These are especially women's afflic tions. They are caused by irregular work ing of some of the functions of the body. It is of the utmost importance to every woman to know that there is no medicine so valuable for her, so helpful, so strengthening, as Lane's Family Medicine (called also Lane's Tea) This tonic-laxative is a great blood medicine and is the favorite regulat ing medicine of old and young. All druggists sell it in 50o. and 25c. packages. No Paroles to be Given. It is now fairly evident that the leg islature is not going to authorize any paroles from the penitentiary. Yester day the two committees heard a state ment of the case of L. R. Van Tassel, of Chickasaw cqunty, who is serving for having killed his wife with strychnine poison. The case of T. W. Watson was to have been heard, but no one appeared for him. Then the senate committee voted at once to re fuse the Van Tassel application and also the application for Thomas G. Robinson of Howard county. The lar ter is also a poisoning case, and th« county attorney virtually decided that the evidence of guilt was not con clusive. The action ^aken on these two is supposed to mean that the legisla tive committee will not sanction any paroles. The Haley and Robbard case from Dubuque will have a second hear ing. The senate committee on cities and towns gave a hearing yesterday to those who oppose the Van Law bill to give cities and towns additional power In the matter of investigation of their affairs as a basis for estab lishment of rates. A large number of representatives of various public ser vice corporations appeared to resist the bill on the ground that it. woulo be an unwarranted interference with their private affairs. A hearing is to be given this after noon on the Darrah bill to provide a way for establishing a bank guaranty system in Iowa. A large number of representatives of the banking inter ests of the state will be present. The bill has been very little discussed, but it is known that while some of the bankers of the state are opposed, there are others who ar.e for the meas ure as possibly the safest bill of thi kind that could be devised. It was the intention of the members of the senate insurance committee to this afternoon pass upon the bill to transfer the insurance department from the office of auditor to that, of governor, but owing to the absence of members this will not be done. The committee voted once on this bill and it was a tie. The senate committee on com merce listened to arguments on the wage exemption bill which proposes to permit 10 per cent of the wages of the head of a family to be subject to at tachment. H. G. Lorlmer of Chariton, president of the State Mercantile as sociation, with others associated with the same body, spoke for the measure which is put forth as distinctly in the interest of the merchants of the state. R. W. Patrick, A. L. TJrick, P. S. Billings and others, on behalf of the wage earners, spoke in opposition to the measure. .! v*^ i- f/ have given up the idea of heading off measures they regard as obnoxious in the senate. This was made apparent when the Allen bill went through unanimously, yet most of the senators agree that the bill is of very great im portance in establishing tfhe relations between shippers and, transportation lines. It cuts out of the present law all those modifying phrases behind which the railroads have shielded themselves when cars are demanded for the use of shippers. It is far more drastic than any of the reciprocal de murrage billls which were fought to death last session. But after the pas sage of the Clarkson bill and the Pe terson bill, both relating to damage suits, the bill fathered by the senator from Pocahontas went through with out an effort to amend it and not a vote against it. If the measure is to ber disposed offtt must be in the railroad committee of the house. It remains to be seen whether the fight will be made there to prevent its becoming a law. It is the only bill regarded as of general importance to shippers now in position to be taken up by the house. Ora Williams.

JOHNSTON ISNOTIMPROVED WEAK FROM ATTACK SHE PASSES BAD NIGHT—TRAINED NURSE IN ATTENDANCE. NO NEW EVIDENCE Early Viciousness of John Junkin Strengthens the Suspicion That He Murdered Clara Rosen. Mrs. Charles M. Johnston is not so well this afternoon, the patient having suffered considerably last evening and this morning. A trained nurse is in attendance at all hours, and all that medical at tention can do is being done by a corps of physicians. The physi cians have requested that no on$ be permitted to see Mrs. Johnston. —o— No additional information relative pointing to the identity of the brutal assailant of Mrs. Charles M. Johnston has reached the police department, but in striking contrast to this is the evi dence being received daily relative to John Junkin, now incarcerated in the Albia jail, with a strong suspicion connecting him with the murder of Miss Clara Rosen. Junkin, according to all reports, has always been a bad negro, even from the days of his young manhood. Persons who knew him well when he had not yet reached his teens say that he had vicious tendencies. One story is related of him cutting off the front paws of a cat and after al lowing this torture to continue for some time, severing the hind feet. While he was an inmate of the state reformatory at Eldora, according to State Agent J. H. Harnett of Des Moines, he became so angry that he threw a fine setter dog into a furnace and allowed it to burn to death. In addition to this reputed bad disposi tion, Mrs. Bennett, who upon February 2d was accosted by a negro on the Milwaukee tracks while en route to this city from Rutledge, claims that Junkin is the man who robbed her. The officials have not given up their hopes of fastening the crime of mur der upon Junkin, although at this time there is very little upon which to in crease the evidence. Mt. Pleasant Bum Town. As the debris following the erup tion of a volcano continues to fall for days after upon the surrounding coun try, so the hobos, vags and undesir ables from Ottumwa are inflicting their presence in numbers upon the neighboring cities in Iowa. Yester day twanty new bums, mostly negroes, landed in Mt. Pleasant, supposedly from Ottumwa while similar reports continue to arrive here from numer ous other local cities in Iowa. It is the regular outflo.w of suspicious char acters that follow eyery new crime in Ottumwa. Way Still Working. D. D. Way of the Chicago office of the Pinkerton Detective agency, con fined his labors yesterday in the northern resident district of the city. Thus far he has made no report to Chief Gallagher. Junkin Makes Statement. The following signed statement was made by. Junkin yesterday in Albia: "I don't know nothin' about that Rosen murder except what I have read in the newspapers, and some times you cannot believe all they have to say. This is a'kangaroo as far as I am concerned and they are trying to railroad me. If I had known when they took me out of a cell at Ottumwa that they were going to bring me to Albia they would have killed me in the cell before I would have come. "I am twenty-six years of age and was born r.t Milton and raised hi Ot tumwa. I was sent to the penitentiary from that place and served three years and 9 months and 8 days on a five year sentence. All I lost on behavior during that time was eight days. Once before I was in Albia. I had come to Ottumwa from Ft. Madison on Sunday and the following Saturday night I came to Albia to go out to Hiteman and changed my mind and went back home wherg I played coon-can with some fellows and went broke. I bad intended coming to Albia and then go-, ing to Hiteman to see Mary Priestly but could not make the hill. Then I was going over to Buxton and stay for a couple of days. 8ays He Found Stone. "The night the Rosen girl was mur dered I was at the home of my moth er and in bed. They say in the news papers that I was in the vacant house, but that is all a lie. I was not there at all. The diamond which I peddled to the pawnbroker, I found. I found it at the corner of Main and Jefferson streets and took it to the pawnbrok ers when I went to get a suit of clothes I had in soak. The suit was up for $3.00 and I had $2.50 and wp.s going to stand him off if I could and get the clothes. Then I found the diamond and took it along and tried to get what I could on it. He said it was a Barrios or something like that and was not a genuine stone. He let me have $5.75 on the stone and I left it with him. Do you think that if had taken that diamond from the Rosen girl I would have tried to get rid of it in Ottumwa. A man would be a damn fool who would try such a thing. And then if I knew it was a good diamond do you suppose I would have let that pawnbroker have it for $5.75? I tell you this Is all a put-up job and they are trying to kangaroo me. I do not know anything about the case, am innocent of anythin_ they have said against me. They claim now all they are holding me for is larceny. Can they send a man ovir the road for celling a cyamond whon he has found it? No, sir, I am not guilty of any crime except selling a diamond which I found, if that is a crime.

Des Moines, Feb. 25.—J. C. Mabery, the "man in the red auto," as ho was known in Council Bluffs, will be brought back to Iowa from Little Rock, Ark., to defend himself against the charge of conspiracy brought by T. w. Bellew of Princeton, Mo. Mab ery is said to be the leader of ths gang which operated in Council Bluffs for several months, and brought to a close a career of lawlessness last Oc tober by swindling Bellew out of $30,000 in cold cash. Armed with requisition papers which were signed after 6 o'clock last evening by Governor Carroll, Detec tive William Groneweg of Council Bluffs left last night for Little Rock, where Mabery is under arrest. Mr. Groneweg recently returned from New York City, where he successfully fought a legal battle for the custody of John C. Dobbins, who is accused by Bellew of the crimes of larceny and conspiracy. Dobbins is now in the Council Bluffs jail and Mr. Groneweg feels highly elated over the successful issue of the efforts that have been made for several months to locare Mabery. Mabery, together with F. M. Clark and I. J. Warner, was arrested by Postoffice Inspector Swanson of Coun cil Bluffs in a fashionable apartment house in Little Rock. They are under indictment at Little Rock for swind ling gullible and wealthy victims and it may be that the Arkansas officers will oppose the efforts of the Iowa au thorities to extradite them. Story of the Swindle. The story of Bellow's loss of $30,000 was told last night by Mr. Gronewoi*, who declares that Bellew, when he went into the deal which brought about the swindle, had no hint that it was dishonest and was not enticed into the deal by the promise of win ning money from other apparent "suckers.'' Dobbins lived at Princeton for many years and became acquainted with Mr. Bellew, who is a wealthy mer chant there. He was persuaded to aid Dobbins, he says, when the latter, who was in debt., came to him and said he could make enough money to pay his debts If Bellew would help him. Together they went to Council Bluffs, Bellew declares, and there h» was shown two race horses and told that thev were to be pitted against each other in a trial of speed. Dob bins introduced him to others of the gang, who were ostensibly eastern men with plenty of money to bet on one of the horses. Dobbins was stake holder and Mabery, it is alleged was one of the principals in the betting. Bellew was entrusted with the money the friends of Dobbins wanted to bet on their horse, and when he had put all of it up as stake money there was still about $30,000 awaiting a taker. Then the friends of Dobbins suggest ed that Mr. Bellew furnish this mon ey, to be repaid to him the following day. He had brought just $30,000 in cash from Princeton, Dobbins having told him it might be needed to estab lish Bellew's standing as a man of means. After the bets had all been made, one of the gang, posing as an offlccr, entered the room where the confer ence was in progress. This was the signal for the get-away, and Bellew was quietly notified to meet the others at Kansas City on the following day, when he would receive his $30,000 Threatened with arrest by the sun posed officer, the bettors called off the arrangements for the race. Two Now in Custody. Bellew went to Kansas City, from there to Chicago and thence to New York, each time answering messages from the gang, whose members were meanwhile putting just as much dis tance as they could between them and the man they had duped. Finally Mr. Bellew gave up the chase and report ed the swindle to the officials at Coun cil Bluffs. The federal authorities were interested, as the mails had been used to further the scheme. Since last October the chase has been on, and now that two of the accused men are in custody there is a chance that Bellew may get revenge. Mabery, Mr. Groneweg says, was a well known figure in Council Bluffs, where he and his pals posed as brok ers under the firm name of Mason & Co. He lived in style and spent much of his time riding in a red automobile. Several swindles involving big OLD GOLDEN COFFEE What is your ideal of excel lent coffee?
