W. Red'dig to
Waterloo. Iowa. Jan. 25. A wild
west show that failed to organize has
started a wonderful row in the eastern
part of the county, and the famous
Blanche Wowstrowser. the wild west
girl. Is now in heaps of trouble.
Blanche Wawstrowser is a character
well known about this city and this
section of Iowa She is a horsewoman
of great ability and has appeared In
Buffalo Bill's and many another wild
west company from the best down to
the poorest. Rough and uncouth, she
is a typical western girl, with all the
wild beauty of outdoor life, and few
there are that can excel her In horse
About a year ago the famous Blanche
became enamored with the thought of
starting a wild west show of her own
She would have a wild west show that
would be second to none. She mortgag
ed her home farm in Fox tonship and
planned for the show. Later she se
cured an opportunity with another at
traction and spent last summer on the
road with them.
I'roplr Are KBgaaed.
In the plans for her show she had
engaged several personages, and these
came to the city, but were forced to
leave without positions. John Shelton.
a negro, was one of the men engaged
to appear with her company. He was
busted when ho struck the city, and
the show having gone, to the bow-wows.
Blanche set him to work on the farm
He worked from June to December last
year on the farm, and then demanded
his wages. They were not forthcom
ing. and recently he started a suit to
secure the. wages. The suit was tried
yesterday before John Youngblut, the
justice of the peace In Fox township.
Shelton won. Hardly was the suit over
and a verdict pronounced for some $00
in favor of Shelton than he was arrest
rd by United States officers and taken
to Cedar Rapids on the charge made
by Blanche that he had robbed her
mail and rural mall boxes near the
farm. He was released at Cedar Rap
ids on his own recognizance and re
turned to this city and Immediately
left for the farm.
Negro U Out For Illood.
It is now on the program to have
some exciting times at the rough Haw
strowser farm in that vicinity. , The
negro threatens to shoot all connected
with the case, and threatens the ex
termination of Blanche and her party.
The sheriff has been called to the scene
to quiet the trouble, though it is said
that Blanche, who is familiar with
arms, is not afraid to test her own
worth with that of the negro when it
comes to a fight, and does not want in
terference from the officers.
Blanche Hawstrowser Is a peculiar
character, and one that has made
much trouble for people and authori
ties. Suspicion of a number of crimes
has rested upon her, but she has never
been proven guilty. She Is fond of rid
ing about at night, and is seen at any
time of the night, driving her fast
teams about the city and country. Al
ways is she clad in men's clothes, and
with cap and fur overcoat is taken
most of the time for a masculine being
by those who are not acquainted with
ArrrMtnl In Krbraaika.
Recently she was arrested in Ne
braska by authorities, she having ob-
amen a position mere as cowboy under
he guise of a man. She was suspected
and made to disgorge the truth. When
was found that she was a woman she
was ordered from the country, hut
claims that she will again go west and
become a genuine cowboy, and that she
can show them all up when it comes to
roping , steers. During her varied ca
reer she has made and saved money
and Is a character seldom seen in this
day and age of the world.
B. F. Tilunghast. editor of the Dav

of the Trident, the trl-city society
weekly, has a communication on the
advantages of a police matron. He
Davenport. Ia., Jan. 20. To the Edi
tor or the indent: iou ask for an
opinion on the police matron question
which is now under discussion in the
cities just across the river.
Liei me say at the start that yon
have never taken up a more appealin
cause, and you will deserve the thanks
of the public if you keep on "pounding
away" until a compelling public senti
ment is aroused.
Most of us are so absorbed, in our
own personal, and business anaiM
that we allow interests common to ali
to be overlooked. And 5-et by our in
difference we tend to make the com
munity in which we live less bright
than it otherwise would be.
A police matron is a necessity for
Davenport. This has been shown in
hundreds of instances. There is n
opposing view, except possibly those
who count the cost in mere dollars
And in this respect the liolice matron
saves more than she costs. But th
question is one that ought not to bear
the dollar mark, since that is mercen
ary and nase wnen compareu wun ine
good done. Common propriety Is rea
son enough for a police matron wher
ever women and girls are arrested.
nd It is Inevitable that waywa
ones are to ne iounu in an cuies 01
the size of Davenport. Rock If land or
But the arrest, trial and punishment
of wrongdoers Is neither the beginning
nor the end of a police department
It is far more important to prevent
crime than it is to deal with the crlm
inal after he has committed an un
lawful act. The prevention of fires
counts, likewise of disease; it is worth
vastly more than flooding the flames
or cnecKinir ine contagion nw
germs are in the. air. Now a police
matron of tact and devotion to duty
one who is moved by human, touch and
sympathy, is a precaution. She saves
the gjrl started in the wrong direction
before she Is lost. This is Why I feel
a Keen Interest In an institution In
this city whose object Is to help self-
respecting girls who are engaged in
A policeman is not given a star, with
authority to wear it, because of any
reformatorv efforts he Is expected to
make. He is rather provided with a
club to compel obedience of the rough
and dangerous classes among men.
He is not supposed to exercise much
discretion. It is his business to arrest
the law-breaker; and if clemency Is to
be shown that is the province of the
The understanding I have Is that a
police' matron is not a policeman. And
this difference emphasizes the need
for the former. Rock Island and Mo
line long since passed that stage of
growth where they can give h reason
able excuse for neglecting to add a
woman to their police service. If their
financial condition is such that they
think they cannot afford it, then it
seems to me that good order and pub
lic morality would be advanced by cut
ting off a policeman and putting a
police matron in his place.
