In charge was left standing on tlio platform.
The last beard of HuEscll was that ho left
the train when It slowed up before It reached

to Council Bluffs. Constable Balrd waited
arpund in the vicinity of the railway yards
until 11 o'clock in the vain hope that the
tnlEslng prisoner would show up. The crime
for which the young man was held to the
grand jury was a felony that would send him
to the penitentiary for several years If con

vso of tbo opportunity that was providen
tially placed In his way.

Judge McGco decided yesterday morning
that the Board , of County Supervisors must
count the vote cast In the late election In the
East Omaha precinct , and ordered the board
to cancel the certificate of election Issued
to Prof. Paulson and reissue It to Prof , Saw
yer , showing his election to the office of
county superintendent of schools.
Judge McGco's decision In the mandamus
cnso was awaited wlth great Interest and
there was a largo crowd In the superior
court room yesterday morning when It was
announced. The decision sustains every
contention In every part brought up by the
attorneys for Sawyer and Is a victory for
them that called for some hearty congratu
lations from their fellow attorneys. The
board convened nt the usual hour In the
morning , but did llttlo business whllo waitIng -
Ing for the opinion. When it was received
Paulson was made n party to the eult by
agreement , for the purpose of preventing the
necessity of another action In court com
pelling him to surrender the certificate of
election. The decree was not officially
served until afternoon and the board went to
work to canvass the rejected returns. The
work proved to bo a little bit more than was
anticipated , ns It Involved the necessity for
constructing a new abstract of the entire
county vote. This was moro than Auditor
Matthews could accomplish during the aft
ernoon and the board adjourned until this
morning , when the process of counting Paulson
son/ / out and Sawyer in again will bo re
It was authoritatively declared yesterday
that the matter would not end with the an
nouncement ot the result by the canvassing
board today. Immediately after the an
nouncement Is made the board will be
served with notice that Paulson will contest
the election , of Sawyer. This \vlll necessi
tate the scanning and cumtlng of every vote
cast In the county by the members of a con
test board provided by the statutes. This
board will consist of the chairman of the
county board and one man to bo selected by
each of the contestants. These men will
presumably bo the attorneys Interested on
either sldo of the present case. Paulson re
lics upon the fact that among the 700 or SOO
republican votes that were cast for Sawyer ,
which were of necessity all scratched , there
will bo found a sufficient number Irregularly
marked to extinguish Sawyer's plurality ot
eight. It Is probable also that there will be
losses on the other sldo. In one of the city
wards there wcro forty votes cast that had
"yes" written in on the poor farm proposi
tion. These votes were all for Paulson and
if the contest board holds that they are
marked ballots and rejects them It will cut
down Paulson's vote seriously. There Is also
ono precinct In the country where Irregu
larities are alleged to have been committed
that will compel Its rejection.

The committee appointed at the last meetIng -
Ing of the executive committee of the Coun
cil Bluffs Transmlsslsfllppl association to
wait upon the management of the exposition
In Omaha and secure the rescinding of the
charge for the site for the Iowa building
has completed its work and prepared Its
renort. The report will be submitted to the
association at Its next meeting and will show
that the request made by the resolution has
been compiled with. There will be no charge
made for a site for the Iowa building and
all of the funds placed at the disposal of
the Iowa exposition commissioners will bed
d to defray the cost of the building and
the exhibit that will bo made. The commit
tee , composed of Senator Pusey , William
Moore and W. A. Maurer , received a pleasant
welcome from the exposition management ,
and before the chairman had finished mak-
Inc'tho statement of the object of the visit
assurances were given that no charges of
any character would bo made by the expo
sition management.
The Council Bluffs commltteo accompanied
Chairman Packard of the executive commlt
tee of the Iowa commissioners and the as
surances that the management had reconsid
ered the matter of exacting the 'Charge for
a. slto were given directly and officially to
Whllo the commltteo was in Omaha the
members assisted ex-Governor Packard In
locating the state building. The site selected
is one of the most prominent on the grounds ,
close by the main entrance , and the building
the state will erect will bo one of the first
oblects to meet the eyes of the visitors on
entering the gates.
Speaking on the subject yesterday Sena
tor Pusey raid : "Wo were greatly pleased
with' the reception accorded us. Although
wo had no reason to expect any other kind
of treatment , yet a committee , bearing a
grievance naturally expects some rebuffs. We
wcro given to understand right at the start
that every man interested In the manage
ment of the exposition and In Its success
was anxlqus to show the' Iowa representa
tive and the Council Bluffs commltteo every
possible consideration. The action will re
move many ot the obstacles from the way
of the largo appropriation that we will aok
from the legislature this winter. All of the
members of the Pottawattamlo delegation
In the legislature will , figuratively speaking ,
pull off their ccats and go to work from
now on and get things In shape for the con
test when the legislature meets , Iowa ought
to make oven a more creditable showing than
was made at the Columbian exposition , for
the reason that moro Immediate and greater
ultimate results will follow , The exposition
Is going to ho all otthe great success that
its originators have planned 11 to be , and
tha natural force of circumstances will com
pel the state to make an extra effort toward
a fine display. Among the transmlsslsslpnl
states Iowa stands first and her exhibit uiuat
not bo second to any , "

Three merchants discovered the fact yes
terday afternoon that they bad been caught
upon the venerable bogus check deal , and
each was out { 12 , On Saturday night a
roughly dressed young man eamo Into the
Boston store end purchased some gooda. In
payment ho offered a check for $1- and
received the amount pf change duo him.
The check was drawn on tbo Council Bluffs
Savings bank In favor of John Connors or
bearer and was signed by James O , Morcler.
In the lower left hand corner a rubber stamp
had been uced to stamp ia the words : "James
O. Mercler Pay Check , " The check was
numbered 47 , and the bearer explained that
Mercler was a now employer of labor , who
had not been long In the city. At Gold-
grabber's dry goods store the man presented
another check ot tbo same character In pay
ment for a small purchase and received the
remainder In cash. The third check was
passed on the Knowles Shoe company. The
checks were not banked until late yesterday
afternoon , near the close of business , and
their sourlous nature was not detected until
thev were sent to the bank for payment.
The police were not notified until after dark.
The deficrlptlcn of the man given by the
merchants differ Eomewhat , but are all close
encniKh to establish the fact that he Is the
same fellow who passed a number .of similar
checks In Omaha on Friday , There Is no suth

SIOUX CITY , Nov. 22. ( Special Telegram. )
The sensational disclosures mode in this
city on Sunday over the city clerk's ac
tion in dating back a notice of damages has
been the leading topic of conversation in this
city today. The local papers have followed |
the matter up very closely and it looks very
much as If there would bo an official In
vestigation of the scandal. City Clerk Jack
son -today annotticcs that ho will not resign
and says ho will not go out of the office under
a cloud. The deputy clerk has taken sides
against Jacknon and avers that n lie has
passed somewhere. The city attorney had
the deputy clerk some weeks ago mutilated
the clerk's official stamp to catch Jackson.
The stamp on the Sachs notice shows this
mutilation , which la slight. An evening
paper editorially roasts the city administra
tion and directly Implicates Aldermen Moore
and Marshall In the deal. It says that
the clerk should be forced to resign.

of good service for the first term.
DCS Molnes Capital : A great many so-called
changes In the Iowa code discussed In the

Cedar Rapids Republican : The Iowa calam

Council Bluffs Nonpareil : The bank de
posits In Iowa have Increased over 10 per cent
in three months , a larger Increase than ever
In the history of the state. lowans are not
cnly making money , but saving It.
Burlington Hawkeye : The Omaha B o says
the Jobbers In this city have been compelled
to work their employes overtime and Sundays
to nil shipping orders. And this In Bryan's
state , where they positively deny the return
of Droeoerltv.
Harlan Republican : Up In Carroll county
the delinquent saloon taxes amount to more
than $12,000 , If the county attorney up
there would do his duty there wouldn't bo a
cent unpaid. Shelby county is fully paid up ,
and It Is announced that In the future the
tax must bo paid quarterly In advance , as
provided by law. That is the chief point in
the mulct law. If the tax Is not paid the
saloon U liable to all the penalties of pro-
hlbitlcci. The county owes It to those who
pay the tax promptly to enforce the law
fully against those who don't.
Spirit Lake Beacon : There are-three or four
candidates for speaker of the Iowa house ,
but Representative J. H , Funk , the veteran
legislator from Hardin , seems to bo consid
erably in the lead. Mr. Funk has been a
leader In legislative work for three sessions.
His largo acquaintance with men and affairs
and his parliamentary knowledge are Im-
rwrtant. Ho Is able and alert , clean and
courageous. There Is really nothing against
J , H , except his name , and In Justice to a'

The story that came from Seattle , Wash. ,
that Edward 'Murray had been , scon there

beyond causing a delay of thirty minutes
this morning It was passed over and for
gotten , Charles "Wood , the man who claims
to have seen ( Murray allvo In ISfcattlo the

who has lived In Vlnton for a number of
years and who haa a family' living1 there nt

three weeks ago , stating that ho was going
to the Klondike. 'Ho had with him about
$300 besides transportation to Seattle. It Is
generally believed at Vlnton that Wood .be
came stranded at 'Seattle ' and came to the
conclusion that the best way to get back to

ho would to brought back as a witness for

Some , however , think he was sent there for
the express purpose of doing exactly what ho
did do and that It was a clover ruse on the
part of the defendant's friends to get a delay
and perhaps to secure a dismissal on the
charge of murder.

them against suffering and want In case of
his falling off. Ho declared that no motive
had been shown tor the crime and that the
only Incriminating evldcnce < developed was

The name Muskwakl la the designation of
ono ot the most Interesting among the ab
original tribes of North America , writes
Prof. W. J. McQeo , acting director of the
Smithsonian institution , in response to an
Inquiry from the editor of the Cedar Ilaplds
Gazette. The tribe belongs to the Algonquin
stock. At the time of the earliest records
by white men they wcro In what Is now
Can.ida . , near the southern end of Lake
Huron , while their own traditions seem to
Indicate that they hod reached that paint by
long-continued westerly migration , and that
they were acquainted with the country south
of Lake Ontario , and thence eastward to the
shores ot thu Atlantic somewhere north of
Capo Cod. From the point determined by
historical records they arc known to have
mlgiated westward across the St. Clalr river ,
traversing the lower peninsula of Michigan ;
soon afterward they reached thu vicinity of
Green bay , In what Is now Wisconsin ,
though It Is not known how they crossed
Lake Michigan. From Green bay they mi
grated scuthwcstward to and across the Mis
sissippi , anil occupied eastern Iowa. While
In Michigan (90 ( far as has been ascertained )
they formed an alliance with the Osaukl ,
Sauklo or Sac Indians for war purposes , and
while about Green bay the alliance seems
to have grown into a confederacy for de
fense and offense against the Sioux Indian ? .
Still later the same confederacy was main
tained In a strife against the whites , which
terminated In the Black Hawk war. I5y
reason , ot this confederacy It became and
still remains custonlary to speak of the
Indians of both the Muskwakl and Sac tribes
as the Sac and Fox Indians ; yet , so far ns
I can learn , the two tribes were not closely
affiliated In language , and were so far dis
similar in social organization and beliefs
that the alliance was never harmonious save
under stress ot war ; und disruption began
Immediately after the Black Hawk war and
ccntlnued until the tribes again became
distinct , and this despite the mistaken effort
of Indian agents and other representatives
of the government to perpetuate the con
federacy. During and for some time previ
ous to the war against the whites which
bears his name , Black Hawk was the war
chief. Black Hawk was a Sac ; but , so far
as I can gather , Poweshlek , the head of the
Muskwakl tribe , was the real power behind
the throne and Black Hawk's chief adviser ,
though he always counseled peace.
After the Black Hawk war the Indians
withdrew Into the unsettled wuntry and about
1853 the two tribes were located together on
a reservation in Indian territory ; there the
antipathy between them soon resulted In dla-
senslon , and the Muskwakl Indians gradually
withdrew , family by family , and most of
Ihcm returned to their former hunting
grounds ) on the Iowa river , about fifty miles
west of Cedar Rapids. There they acquired
land In exchange for ponies , furs , etc. , and
there the greater part of the tribe remains.
There are some 400 men , women and chll-
'dren In this main part of the tribe , and
they own some 3,000 acres of land , located
on both sides ot the Iowa river , a few miles
west of Tama' .
The name of Muskwakl means "red fox , "
or "pecplo of the rod fox. " It Is the name
by which the tribe distinguishes itself.
The Muskwakl Indians have always been
distinguished for excellence of physique and
dignity of bearing. They were always brave
In battle ( despite a curios misapprehension to
the contrary ) , though it is their beast that
they have always been at peace with white
men , save when temporarily dominated In
council In the Black Hawk war. Several
of their chiefs have become prominent in the
history of the country ; the old shoman ,
who recently died , was a friend and sup
porter of Julian Dubuque , the well known
oloncer. Through a 'combination of accidents
the desire for yeaco when the Sac Indians ,
under Black Hawk , stood out for war , the
fact that their name was commonly trans
lated into English the Muskwakl trlbo had
not received due prominence In the minds of
historians and the public. It follows , of
course , that the name is a pre-eminently fit
ting ono for preservation in geographic and
other nomenclature.
The ordinary spelling of the name Is
Musquaklo , but the orthography a'doptcd ih
the bureau Is as above ,
The Cedar Haplds Gazette adds the follow
ing regarding the Muskwakls as known In
central Iowa ; "Like the Indians of other
climes and of other days , the Musquakl had
their legends , and tbo impressions of them
are still left In the soil of Linn county , pro
vided they are true. Up the river from
Linn Junction , about a quarter of a. milt ;
above the Milwaukee crossing and half &
mlle back from the river near a lake which
has since passed Into mist , there Is an old
Indian burying ground. Many a savage
whoao wrong-doing toward the palefaces was
very slight lies here In peaceful sleep , and
the roar of railroad trains and the ruoli
of travel disturbs him not. Ho Is shooting
choicest steaks In the happy hunting ground
and his little handful of great grandchildren
know of him only In Indian song and story ,
The Muequakl had a civilized Idea of the
burial of their dead , and when some great
sachem passed away they made a panel of
wood with a lid to It , placed him Inside
and dropped the lid and covered It ovoh
with dirt. It Is said that even in this day
the graves can easily bo found after an In.
vcstigatlon below the surface of the ground ,
but nothing 'will bo found except somu
mouldy bones and decayed wood which oncu
formed the sarcophagus of the mighty bixivc ,
who was once endowed with all the Instlncta
ot his eavago brethren. And the story runa
that every twenty yearn , when the mcon
cast Its wlerd rays across the shadowy wood ,
land , the braves rso ! from their charnc )
houses and dance the war dance as In ilayn
of old , when the tramp of the white man
was yet an unfamiliar sound. The story
goes that the last epoch was In 1885 , when
some whlto men from the city , who worts
out hunting , witnessed the strange core ,
mony , According to < theBO figures the next
dance will not occur until 1905. So If you
wish to see how the Mtutquakl did < thelr
dance Just drop around eight years from
today and you will see sights about which
Slukespoaro never 'wrote , even In his blood
iest tragedies.

They made their wigwams of bark and many
a feast of corn and dog was held beneath
the grateful ehade of tbo woodland. Indian
funerals were an uncommon sight , for tha
Muskwakl was a hardy redskin and he lived
long. So far as known but ono white man
ever beheld the ceremony over the death of
a red Muekwakl. He bad been hunting
and stumbled upon the camp unobserved. It
was the custom to kill tlie favorlto dog on
the death of a chief and this particular
canlno was tied to a tree with a red string
about 1U neck , dead as a smelt. The trees
for some distance about the camp were dec
orated with red cloth or cord and the Immo.
