CURRENT NEWS OF IOWA COUNCIL BLUFFS FOUND DEAD IN THE CREER ( Paper Carrier liecoTen the Body of Wil . liam Steinbangh. INDICATIONS POINT TO ACCIDENT 114 Been DrlakJns; ome, bat When Last seen Alive Waa Not Intoxi cated Had Evidently Been la Crrrk All Slant. William F. Stelnbaugh. a plasterer living at Eighth and AII11 treet, waa found lying dead yesterday morning In Indian creek a few feet went of the Ninth itreet bridge. His head and shoulder were resting on the Ice, while the rant of his body was In the mud and water. Tracks on the north bank of the ereek ahowed where the man alld down to the creek bed. Some boys delivering the morning papers noticed the body and at once notified Wal ter Goodrich, proprietor of the Metropol itan, who In turn notified the police. Stednbaugh was lying face downward and the heat of his breath and body had partially melted the Ice about bis head. Indications were that he had either at tempted to climb down the creek bank and bad slipped or had In the darkness mistaken his way and Instead of walking onto the bridge stepped over the bank and fallen Into the creek. The fact that the tracks on .the side of the bank were made before the earth became frosen Indicates that Bteinbaugh must have fallen Into the creek some time In the early part of the night. . . .. Investigations made by the police dis closed the fact that Bteinbaugh had been drinking In a nearby saloon with several companions and the presumption Is that he was under the Influence of liquor when be started for his home. To reach his home he would have to cross the Ninth street bridge from south to north and this falls to explain why be should have attempted to climb down or nave slipped down the creek bank on the north aide. Stelnbaugh bad been working for Wlck ham Brothers and left home Saturday aft ernoon to draw his pay. The fact that he still had $12 In his pockets disproves any theory of -foul play. At his home It was learned that he had not been home after leaving the house to draw his pay. P. Madden of 1128 Seventh avenue and F. P. Sholes of 2102 Avenue O, stated yesterday they were with Bteinbaugh about S o'clock Saturday evening and at that time he ap peared to be perfectly sober.

Sheriff Canning arrived home yesterday morning from Burlington after an unsuc cessful search for J. H. Whitcomb, the prisoner who escaped from him Friday while enroute to the penitentiary at Fort Madison. Sheriff Canning stated that there was little to add to what had already been told In the press dispatches. Whitcomb was handcuffed to the other two prisoners. Smith and Vaughn, and In some manner succeeded In slipping his handcuffs. The window of the car was open and almost as quick as lightning Whitcomb was through It, head first. The train was run ning about twenty miles an hour and dark ness had set In. The whole thing hap pened In a second, and as Whitcomb had been handcuffed to the other two men, when he slipped his cuffs It left the other men free and 8hertff Canning said his first thought after Whitcomb disappeared through the window was to prevent the other two prisoners making a getaway. The train was stopped In almost Its length, but there was no trace of the escaped man. Only a hasty search could be made as the train could not be delayed for any length of time. While waiting to moke train connections at Burlington the three prisoners were placed In the jail there, and It is Sheriff Canning's opinion that Whitcomb improved the time while there by making a key to open the cuffs out of an old rusty nail. The three men, Sheriff Canning sold, were leg shackled, but after leaving Burlington on the train he removed them, believing that a4 the three men were apparently securely handcuffed together they couldn't get away. Sheriff Canning said he did not believe It was possible for Whitcomb to have es caped Injury, though he had been a pro fessional circus acrobat and accustomed to hard falls. a He Is also sanguine that the man will eventually be recaptured, as pic tures and descriptions of him have been sent broadcast. Sheriff Canning remained but a short while at home, leaving In the afternoon again for Fort Madison with Arthur and Bernstein, the men sentenced to ten years each for the attempt to rob the Treynor bank.

The construction of a magnificent cathe dral, to cost In the neighborhood of $200,000. is being planned by leading Catholics of this diocese. It Is the Intention to erect the building In ihls city. If the enterprise Is successful the cathedral will, when com pleted, be one of the finest structures of the kind In the northwest. If present plans materialise the proposed cathedral will be erected within the next two or three years. Under the laws of South Dakota, as they were up to the session of the legislature which has Just adjourned.

JIU JITSU FOR THE POLICE Chief Donahue Plana Giring Hit Mei Some Farther Instruction. OPINION OF THE ATHLETES ON THE SCIENCE Muscular and Agile Men Who Have Been Tried at Other Tricks Talk f the Asiatic Stunt and Its Possibilities. Captain Henry Dunn and Sergeants Mar shall and Havey, who have charge of the gymnasium at police headquarters, are considering the advisability of adding a course In Jlu-Jltsu. Chief Donahue has suggested that the policeman who Is pro ficient In that Japanese science would be sure to be master In any physical encoun ter In the line of his duty and therefore a more valuable officer. "There Is always an element In large cities," said the chief, "which considers It a clever and heroic thing to 'toss the Turk.' as the slang phrase has it. This we do not want to happen in Omaha, at least not again. A man who is on trial now Is said to have done that once, and his temporary success may have had a good deal to do with placing him where he Is today." Captain Dunn and the two sergeants are athletes themselves, although Havey has got rather Into the heavy weight class of late and wears a larger belt than he used to when he was on the street, the hand somest boy on the force. Dunn Is a Mul doon In build and .Marshall is of the old frontiersman stylo, hard, rangy and quick. Emergency Officer Dan Baldwin, who some years ago gave Yousuf, the moun tainous Turk, a hard night's work, is de pended upon to perfeot the Instruction, since he has recently become Interested in the Japanese trick wrestling. 'Baldwin will be Invaluable If we install the new system," said Captain Dunn. There Is many a good trick In Old Dan yet, and as we have a good gymnasium room, mat and everything elese necessary, there ia no reason why we should not have. In a short time, as well set up and as clever and self-dependent a set of ofh cers'as any city In the country. We cer tainly have the material." Discussed Among the Men. Several of the best men on the force from a physical standpoint, are now In at tendance on the criminal branch of the district court. While walling in the corri dors for the call to the witness stand they have been giving some time to the dis cussion of the proposed new departure. "That Jew gypey stuu Is making a hit In the east, I know," said Detective Jim Donahue. "It Is not quite new here, how ever. I remember we used to have it In the fire department years r.go, and when a man got a fall at it he knew It. A good Jew gypsy man could slide the pole even If he had no hands. I used to go down so quick I was stirprisc-U mytcif sometimes." "Aw, gwan, you're klddla'," said Steve Maloney, an ex-railroader, who has been a thief-taker now for a good many yenrr. "What you don't know about the t'rowln' tricks of Toklo, as we cnil It. would mako a bigger book than what you do know." "W ell, I know this," cut In Detective Sam Drummy, 'It wouidn t hurt none ot us a bit to do a few circles In the air no-r and then. I'm gettln' a llttlo stiff myself, even. The only quo-it'on with me Is lhat room down at the barn. It Isn't big enough, because If Tom Mltuholl should be slung clear of the floor his feet would break every gas fixture In It " Pat Moatyn's Prowess. "Not on your life," asserted Henry Helt- feld. "Them fellows can make a man turn a summerset on a dollar. It's a brute of a game, though, only fit for foot ball players and circus men. I'd like to see Havey and Marshall practice with Boston Green before I go against It. And at that I'll bet Pat Mostyn can go In rough-and-tumble and lay down anyone outside the chief at the city hall." "I dunno about that," said Bill Devereeee. "I understand the chief used to be a good hand with the feet in Iowa, but the best of that bunch was Farmer Burns, and he's no Jap." "Well, I never heard of these gypsy ras lers before," said Drummy, "an" I don't know where gypsies ever learned to raasle anyway, unless they're Irish gypsies. I dunno about Jew gypsies." "It's not gypsies," broke out Donahue, who had been examining some pictures In a paper. "It's git us or git youse, or some thing like that. See here, there's a little man tossing a big one over so he'll light on his face. That's what I was telling you fellows." "I'd like to see some little chap like that tackle Mike Crow or Martin Shields or Cap Haze," remarked Tom Mitchell; '"yes, or Frank Divls or Dan Davis. Them fellows would show your Jew gypsies something." "Well, what's the matter with you?" asked Captain Dunn. "You're a pretty big man yourself." "I'm not boasting," replied Mitchell, "but I'm going to study up." FIRST' VOYAGE OF NEW LINER Cunard Steamer Caroala Is On of Largest and Fastest Passen. ger Iloats Afloat.
