M. J. Carpenter , a traveling man. for a
Chicago cigar firm , was slugged and robbed
by unknown parties at an early hour
Wednesday morning on Broadway , near
Pearl street , while on his way to the Grand
hotel. The robbers Hceurod over $100 , but
loft him his gold watch and chain. From
tun appearance of tlio wound on tha back
of his head It Is believed ho was struck with
a satid bag. While the blow knocked him
senseless , the scalp was not cut , which
would have been the case In all probability
had he been hit with a club or some similar
heavy weapon.
Mr. Carpenter , who IB a stranger to Coun
cil Bluffs , arrived In the city Tuesday and
In the evening went to Omaha. Ilo re
turned shortly before midnight , getting off
the motor at the corner of Broadway and
Pearl street. Feeling thirsty , he decided
to get a drink before going to the hotel
where ho was stopping. Ho went Into a
saloon on Broadway , a abort distance from
the corner of Pearl street , and called for a
glass of boor. When he came to pay for
It he discovered ho had no change and was
obliged to take a roll of notes out of his
pocket. Not wishing to give the' bartender
the trouble of changing a $5 bill for a
o-ccnt drink , he ordered a cigar. Ho noticed
a number of men standing at the bar , but
paid no particular attention to any of them.
After leaving the saloon Carpenter 'heard '
footsteps behind him , but before he had
tlmo to turn around ho felt a heavy blow
on the back of his head and remembered
nothing moro until nome three hours later.
On regaining consciousness he found him
self half sitting and half lying on the stairs
In the hallway of the iMetcalf building on
Pearl street. How he came to bu there he
could not understand and supposed that the
thugs who robbed him , after knocking him
senseless , carried or either dragged him
thero. As soon as he could gather his
thoughts he looked for his money , only to
Ilnd that his pocketbook and Its contents
waa mlEtslng. His valuable gold watch and
chain and scarf pin had not been touched.
Ho struggled to the hotel , a few doors up
the street , and after acquainting the night
clerk of the robbery went to 'bed.
The robbery was reported to the police
early Wednesday morning , but so far no
clo\v has been obtained to the Identity of
the robbers. It is supposed that the robbery
was committed by parties who saw Car
penter prcduco his money In the saloon and
followed him out and slugged him.
The gambling houses being permitted to
run wide open all night long attract large
numbers of thugs and crooks to this city ,
who are allowed to remain hero unmolested
by the police , no effort being made by the
authorities to drive them out.
A dance and cake walk will be given at
W. O. W. hall on Saturday , March IS.
