NEWS FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS Plans to'fiovivo the Ohautanqua Assembly the Coming Beacon , LOCAL MINISTERS ARE INTERESTED Outlineof the He-homo to Again I'ut 1.1 fo Into tliln 1'optilnr Hniiuli of tlmi-A "clininv for Itidii the The annual meeting of the Council Bluffs Ministerial association was held yesterday morning at the study of Hcv. Stephen Phelps , D. I ) , In the First Presbyterian thurch. It was the time for electing officers for the ensuing year , and It was decided to make no changes from last year , Dr. Phelpa being re-elected president and Hev. G. W. Snyder secretary. A project which has been on foot for some little time among the ministers was talked up , relative to the revival of the Chan- tuuqua , which has been IIng apparently dead as the proverbial door nail for the past thrco years. A committee , consisting of Ir Phelps , Dr. Askln. Ilev. T. P. Thick- stun , Rev. G. W. Snyder an I Hev II. P. Dudley , was appointed to consider the advis ability of the proposition , and a meeting Is to be held this aftcrnon , at which some ac tion may be taken. The plan , as It Is now talked of , docs not look toward the revival ot the assembly upon quite so magnificent a scale as that which used to deplete the pocketbooks of the Chautauqualtcs with such monotonous regu larity , and It Is therefore claimed that the llnanclal question will not cut quite such a figure now as It did then It Is stated that the use of the assembly grounds and ap paratus has been offered free of charge Primarily the assembly will be held for the benefit of the voung people's societies of the various churches , and all the churches of HOUlhwcstern Iowa and eastern Nebraska will be asked to come In and help make It a success. The camping out system will be used , the same as In pnst years. Good speakers arid musicians will be engaged , nnd a week or ten days of old-fashioned camp meeting will bo enjoyed , with such attrac tions In other lines as will add to the en joyment of both saint and sinner The above Is the plan proposed , In general terms. The 'details have not yet been arranged , and , In fact , the project has not been alive long enough yet to enable those v. ho favor It to prophesy the outcome. There are multitudes of Council Bluffs people who would like to see the Chautauqua revived In some form or other. The financial side of the question Is the ono to bo looked after mainly , and the ministers have hopes. on it T < iliiiUiillty. Otto Ilachwltz had a preliminary examina tion before Justice Vein yesterday afternoon on the charge of having been Implicated In the burglary of Ben Mark's house at Munawa. Although chcumstuntlal evidence was as strong as It could well be , the stolen goods being found In the possession of the accused , and his reputation was boiel > against him , he was discharged by reason of a technicality of the law. According to the construction of UIP law by the court , the statutes say that possession of the stolen pioporty shall not be considered prlma facie evidence of guilt of the crime of burglary unless It Is Immediately after the commis sion of the crime. The stolen goods were found M irch 10 In Ilachwltz' cave , but the house might have been buiglarlzed at any time after February 2. As no one saw Ilach wltz when In the act of bmglarlzlng the house he could not be held , and ho was discharged so far as this accusation was concerned. ) Tht accused Is not yet out of trouble , however. There Is a charge of passing counterfeit money pending agilnst him In the United States court , and tills will be tried at the term of court which commences today. The evidence Is almost conclusive In this case , and he seems likely to spend a term In the penitentiary. The dismissal of the charge of burglary , however , does not end the Marks case , for a charge of larceny will undoubtedly be filed against him , and he will bo reancstcd In case the United States complaint falls to bo substantiated.

Judge Shlras , who is usually here during the term , will bo absent this time , so that Judge Woolson will have the entire responsibility ot the long term on his shoulders. On the docket for the term are a number of Important cases. In which heavy Judgments are asked. It. 0.

Mr. and Mrs. John Swift sues the Chicago & North western for $10,000 for the death of theli bon In an accident.

The marshal himself has steadily refused to give out any information on the subject , nnd all sorts of slates have been made and broken by his sympathetic but poorly Informed friends. Now , however , the thing has sim mered down until It Is regarded as pretty well established that the three deputies whl bo F. P. Fowler , who has served for three years under ex-Marshal Templeton , 13 , C. Baldy and frank Peterson , the Upper Broad way grocer. This slate Is not olUclal , but It Is said to bo correct , notwithstanding.

Water bay , outside St. Johns harbor , on Saturday filled with Ice , among which plenty of seals were seen. Men from all parts of the coast went off to hunt them and met with fair success throughout the day. In the evening the wind changed to westerly and drove the Ice off again. Most of the men who went out were on the Ice field when the wind changed , but the greater number ot them succeeded In reaching land before the Ice moved off. forty or fifty of them , however , were carried out Into open water. Much apprehension was felt In their be half and measures were taken for their safety. Lights were burned and men were bent for steamers to go to their assistance. It took some hours to reach the city and the first steamer only started at 8 o'clock Sunday morning. Another followed four hours later. During the night changes in the position of the Ice caused by currents drove some of It close to the headlands , and most of the men got ashore by swimming , though eight nearly died from the cold. They re ported that a party of nine persons were far off and all energies were devoted to rescuing these men. At last a party was sighted from the outer cove and a boat put off to their rescue. In this party there were six men , all of whom had been frostbitten severely. A little distance from them the rescuing boat's crew sighted three more people , of whom two were dead from the cold.

March 20. fSneelnl tn The Bee ) The long delayed decision In the case of Livingston against Livingston , Involving the question of custody of the remains of the late W. H. Livingston , was finally handed down by Judge Ladd last week. It will be remembered by the readers of The Bee that when Mr. Livingston died last June n con troversy was raised over the possession of his body by the action of his divorced wlfo In securing an Injunction against his widow to prevent the latter .from taking charge of the remains. The present decision sustains In every respect the position assumed by the widow , Mrs. Rose E. Livingston. It gives effect to the last request ot the deceased , as was established by the overwhelming weight of undisputed testimony. At the time the original trouble occurred The Bco was Im posed upon by an Irresponsible party with an account of tha second Mrs. Livingston , which did that lady a grave injustice. She was formerly a Miss Grady. who for some time held a responsible position In one of the leading dry goods stores of Omahn , and always moved In good society , both there and In Sioux City. She married Mr. Living ston after his first wife had secured u divorce , and the trouble over her late hus band's remains Is ascribed to the 111 feeling of his former wife.
