The supreme court has reduced the sen tence ot Albert Gathman, convicted of the betrayal ot Bertha Trede, from fifteen months to three months' imprisonment in the county Jail.

The attorneys for Gathman are, however, not satisfied with the court's rul ing and will file a motion tor a rehearing. Gathman had bis preliminary hearing in this city before a Justice of the peace, but bis trial was held at Avoca before Judge Green, It being shown that the alleged offense was committed In Carson.

LITIGATION IS EXPENSIVE Eata Up Large Porting of Assets of Kimball & Champ Company. RECEIVER AND LAWYERS ARE UNPAID Petition Court to Torn Remaining; Property Over to Them to Compensate Them for Services. "Shortly after assuming the receiver ship I found that practically all of Its valuable securities had been diverted and hypothecated by its officers and my work i has principally consisted in tedious efforts to obtain possession of these securities by either litigation or comromlse." , This is the statement of Charles R. Hannan in bis final report as receiver for the Klmball Cbamp Investment company of this city, which he filed In the district court yester day. The Kimball-Champ Investment company failed In. J 891 and Charles R. Han nan, then cashier of the Citizens' State bank, was appointed receiver. Tbe failure I of the Klmball-Chump Investment company I followed shortly after it completed tho j building cf the Grand hotel. due after foreclosure and another note se cured by mortgage on the hotel annex on which $113,660 remained unpaid after the foreclosure. Owing to the tangled condition of the affairs of the company and the consequent litigation the expenses of the receiver ship have been heavy and have absorbed much of the receipts which came Into Mr. amounting to $14,500. on which1 $3,000 has been paid. Receiver Hannan in asking to be dis charged and his bondsmen exonerated, pe titions the court to authorize the issuance of deeds to the property now In his hands to him and to Stone Dawson In settle ment of their claims, the property to be charged against them at Its appraised value of approximately $20,000. All the other se curlties tho receiver asserts are practically worthless and Impossible to realize on. The Kimball-Champ Investment company did a large business during the boom days of Council Bluffs and Its failure in 1891 created quite a ctlr in financial circles. Gravel rood nr. A. H.

There has been a lot of kicking In Iowa against political machines and yet an agita tion has Juat been started in Dubuque in favor of voting machines. A citizen of Fort Dodge undertook to oathe his viscera with a quart of alcohol at one session, and the coroner reports the result as a highly Interesting study from a scientific point of view. At Marlon C. G. Wesson robbed a youn man by the name of Tom Malone of $76 which the latter had atolen from a farmer and the supreme court says that Wasson's two-year aentence la legally all right. Qotlent verdicts don't go In Iowa and a good many damage awards are being overruled. The courts have distinctly held that Jurors must not reach a verdict by averaging the estimates of all the members. A German named Herman Utesch trans acted a lot of business while drunk In Sioux City the other day. When he sobered up he found he had bought a farm for $5,000, paid a lot of cash down and executed notes and mortgagee for the balance. He must be a corker for business when not embarrassed by drink. The Dubuque fellow had evidently first emptied into himself the contents of the bottle before enclosing In It the harrowing tale of an unknown maiden held In an un known place near there by two horrid men. The maiden, with great presence of mind, withheld her signature and the bunch of police who rushed to the rescue have de clined to file a report. They tell a good story of the origin of the late boom In Iowa for Shaw for vice president. Meyers, a young newspaper editor at Shaw's home town, had provided several bushels of Roosevelt and Shaw buttons to work off when they appeared at Denlson. The president's surgical opera tion was dlsastroua for the buttons and Meyers had $1U0 worth of buttons. But he ingeniously worked up the vice presidential promotion and la now said to be within $7 of even with the game. AN EASY WAY To Keep Well. It is easy to keep well If you only ob serve each day a few simple rules ot health. The all important thing is to keep the stomach right, and to do this it li not nec essary to diet or to follow a set rule or bill of fare. Such pampering simply makes a capricious appetite and a feeling that cer tain favorite articles of food must be avoided. Prof. Wleehold gives pretty good sdvice on this subject. He says: "I sm 68 years old and have never had a serious illness, and st the same time my life has been largely sn Indoor one, but I sarly discov ered that the way to keep healthy was to keep a healthy stomach, not by eating bran crackers or dieting of sny sort; on the con trary, I always eat what my appetite craves, but dally tor the past eight years I have made it a practice to take one or two ot Btuart'a Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal and I strlbute my robust health for a man of my age to the regular dally use of Stuart's Tablets. My physician first sdvlsed me to use them because he said they were perfectly harmless and were not a secret patent med icine, but contained only the natural di gestives, peptones and diastase, and after using them a few weeks I have never ceased to thank him for bis advice. I honestly believe the habit of taking 8tuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals Is the resl health habit, because their use brings health to the sick and ailing and preserves health to the well and strong." Men and women past fifty years ot age need a safe digestive after meals to Insure a perfect digestion snd to wsrd off disease, and the safest, best known and most widely used Is Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. They are found In every well regulated household from Maine to Callforna, and In Great Britain snd Australia are rapidly pushing their way into popular favor. All-druggists sell 8tuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets, full slss packages at 60, cents, snd for a weak stomach a to cent package will often do $50 worts of good. PLANS FOR IOWA BUILDING Commission Telia Architects What it Waited at St. Louis. INTEREST CENTERS IN LIBEL CASE Congressman Hilt Comes Out for Babcock of Wisconsin as the Seat Speaker of the House. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES, la.. Nov. 11. (Special.) The building committee of the Iowa com mission to the St. Louis exposition held a meeting here today at the state capltol and considered the inquiries of architects In reference to the proposed building that Is to be erected for besdqusrters for tho com mission on the exposition grounds at St. Louis. The commission has Instructed the secretary to send out a revised statement ssklng for designs for the building and to Include what Is wanted In the building as to floor space, rooms, their purpose snd the general features of the same. The com mission desires a building large enough to contain committee rooms and rooms for the officers snd a general assembly room, also a building that will be imposing In appear ance. Some of the architects have written to the commission complaining that without some general idea of the character of the building desired they feel It would be folly to undertake the designing of a suitable building. Tbe building committee met to supply this deficiency. It is expected the state will spend $50,000 or $60,000 on a building, or nearly hajf of the total amount appropriated with which to make an exhibit for the state at the exposition. The de signs are to be submitted within a month. Rullns; on a Libel Case. In the district court today several mo tions in relation to sundry claims of the contending parties in the suits between J. C. Tate, coi'aty clerk, snd R. P. Clarkson, formerly publisher of the Dally Register, were ruled upon. Tate sued Clarkson for $25,000 damages for alleged libel and Clark son brought counter suit for the same amount. The trouble grew out of a hot political fight lost spring over congressman. Clarkson published defamatory statements in connection with sn affidavit regarding frauds and corruption at the primary elec tion. Clarkson claimed that the publication of the affidavit and comments thereon was privileged, but tbe court today held this was not tbe case. Clarkson claimed in mitigation that it was his duty to expose corruption. This also was not sustained by the court. He also claimed that he had first been attacked but the court held that as he was not attacked directly by name this had nothing, to do with the case. Tbe Clarkson counter claim was ruled out en tirely by the court, so that there is only one case to be' tried, and that the case of Tate for damages. This will be heard In court In a few. days and under the rulings of the Judge It is probable some form of verdict will be given. Two Murder Cases Considered. The trial of Harry Levlch for the murder of Isaac Finkelsteln will be commenced In court tomorrow, The defendant is anxious to have tbe hearing at once and his attor neys profess ti be 'able to completely es tablish the Innocence of their client. Levich Is accused of having plsnned to have James Walker sssault Finkelsteln tor a consideration. The evidence against both is largely clrcumstsntial. The grand Jury Is now making an Investi gation of the murder of the two Peterson children In Highland park last spring. One arrest was made and a preliminary inquiry held which developed nothing. It is ex pected the grand Jury will secure all evi dence possible in that case. Old Soldier Goes Insane. Grandison Able, a veteran ot the Ninth Iowa cavalry, who has been an inmate of the State Soldiers' home at Marshalltown for several months, has been sent from there to the State Insane hospital at Clarlnda. He had become feeble and de mented and his condition was such that he was regarded as dangerous. He has a wife and three children living In this city and had been a resident here a long time pre vious to his having been taken to the Soldiers' home. Hull Comes Out for Babcock. Considerable surprise was manifested here when Congressmsn Hull, who at pres ent holds the important position of chair man of the military committee of the house, announced himself as In favor ot Babcock of Wisconsin for speaker ot tbe next house snd predicted thst he would have the solid support of the Iowa mem bers. It has been generally expected that the Iowa delegation would support Cannon of Illinois as the logical western candidate to succeed Henderson. Hull and Hepburn have now spoken for Babcock. Hull has been In the east all (all in close touch with Babcock and his sasoctates of the national committee. Congressman Hull ia devoting himself entirely to the postofflca question hero and will remain until it is settled. A new candidate appeared today in the person of W. V. Wilcox, an old so"ldier. Probably 200 persons called on Hull today to urge him to appoint this or that person as postmaster. Appeals B!g Damage Case. The case of F. E. Perry against Clarke county has been appealed to the supreme court. Perry was running a threshing ma chine engine along the highway and tried to cross a small bridge, when it broke down. The accident occurred late in the evening. Perry was pinioned beneath tho engine snd buried in the mud. The escap ing steam scalded him terribly and his leg was broken and crushed. In bis terrible pain, and after be had been lying loathe mud for three hours, he called out for a saw that he might eaw off his leg and re lease himself. It was so dsrk tbst when help arrived for him be literally had to cut his oo wsy out of the wreck and ssva himself. The Jury decided the county was negligent as to the bridge snd gave a ver dict for $4,000 for Perry. Effort to Captors Dipsomaniacs. Oovernor Cummins has sent out to the peace officers of the state a request that they make special efforts to srrest snd re turn to the state hospital at Mount Pleas sat fifteen escaped Inmates of the dipso mania ward whose whereabouts srs un known. He has procured from the superin tendent of the hospital the names of those who havs run awsy. The superintendent complains that the sherlBs of the state have msde no effort to srrest these per sons snd he is without means of bsvlng them pursued and brought back. For President of W. R.

The H-O Company JARVIS 1877 CAPITAL REMOVAL SCHEME South Dakota Cities Combine In Move Aaralnst Present Location t Pierre. SIOUX CITY, Ia., Nov. 11. (Special Tel egram.) Action which may result In tho removal of the capital ot South Dakota from the city of Pierre, and which may also have sn important bearing on the fu ture politics of the state, was taken In Redfleld, S. D., last night. At a secret conference held there the cities of Huron, Mitchell snd Redfleld were each rep resented by committees composed of prom inent' citizens. Although it Is difficult to gather much definite knowledge ot the re sult of the conference, enough has leaked out to Justify the conclusion that a plan was agreed to by which the three cities will work together for the removal of the capltol from Pierre at the coming session of the legislature. Many people here be lieve that the result of the meeting makes it certain that Pierre will lose the capitcl. MITCHELL, S. D., Nov, 11. (Special Tel egram.) Tbe capltol committee ot this city returned this morning from Redfleld. The members were very reticent as to what trantplred at a conference held last night by the representation of Mitchell, Huron and Redfleld on capltol removal matters. A member of the committee admitted that the conference was held and that a com bination waa effected which brought the three towns into a position where they agree to support a measure removing the capltol from Pierre without reference to any Individual town.' Aside from this much of a disclosure the committee would give nothing. It means a fight, however, that Pierre has not contemplated, according to its newspapers.
