BODY FOUND UNDER TREES
Boyi Discover Dead Man and Report
it to the Police.
EVIDENTLY CASE OF SUICIDE
Nothing; on His Person Which t.ivcs
a Cine to His Identity evidently
IIa4 Been Where Found (or
The body of an unidentified man waa dis
covered yesterday afternoon under a tree
near the bank Of the. Missouri river about
fifty yards north of the street railway com
pany's bridge in Council Bluffs. Everythlns
Indicates the man committed suicide by
drinking carbolic acid. One flask which
still contained a small quantity of the acid
was found on the ground beside the body
and another bottle such as used by drug
gists half full of the deadly poison was In
a pocket of the coat. The man la believed
to have been dead four or five days.
The body was first noticed by Walter
Short, 121 Palmer avenue, and Max Wheeler,
1701 Second avenue, two boys who were
playing near the river bank. They were
afraid to approach close to the body to
ascertain whether the man was asleep or
dead, but hastened back to town and re
ported the matter to the police.
Detectives Callaghan and Wilson were
sent to Investigate and they discovered
the body at the place drsrrlbed by the hoys.
The man was lying on his left side under a
tree, with copies of an Omaha evening
paper of last Friday and Saturday spread
under him. Near the body were two pint
flasks, one of which had contained whisky
and was empty, while the other which had
contained carbolic acid had a few drops
left In It. That the body had been there
several days, probably since Saturday
flight, the date of the latest of the two
papers on which he was lying, waa evi
denced by the condition of the body.
The body was taken to Cutler's under
taking rooms by order of Coroner Trey
nor. The dead man evidently waa a la
borer, but there was nothing by which he
could be Identified. There were no papers
or marks of any kind on the clothing. In
the pockets wera found $1.(6 In money, some
tobacco, a Jack knife and two email
packets which apparently contained medi
cine of some kind.
The man appears to have been about 46
years of age, snd Is about 5 foot 10 In
helghth, haa reddish hair with eyebrows
and heavy moustache of the same color.
The clothing: was that of a working man.
Including a black satteen shirt, and was
much bedraggled from having been out in

Three Railroads Sard.
The Great Northern, the Illinois Central,
the Union Pacific and the Chicago & North
western Railway companies are made de
fendants In suits brought yesterday in the
federal court In this city In the name of the
United 8tates of America, claiming of each
of the four railroads $500 as penalty for
holding live stock In ahlpment over their
lines on cars more than twenty-eight hours
without being unloaded for rest and feed,
contrary to the statute governing the ship
ment and transportation of live stock.
The suits, the allegations In each being
the same, are based upon the complaint of
Fred Boterman, a shipper of live stock. He
charges that stock loaded at Davis, S. D.,

R. W. Stevens, the linotype mschlnlst
charged with attempted assault on Alma
Dohse, the 11-year-old daughter of Henry
Dohse, Wednesday evening In Falrmount
park, where he had forced the child to
accompany him, was arraigned before
Judge Snyder in police court yesterday
and lils preliminary hearing set for thla
morning. His bond was fixed at $1,600.
hut no attempt was made by Stevens to
Stevejis took his arrest very coolly
Wednesday night and declined to say any
thing except to deny the charge. When
taken Into custody at his room by De
tective Weir, Stevens merely remarked,
"In the tolls again."
Not only waa Stevens fully Identified
by the little girl, but also by several
who saw him leading the child from the
alley back of the Kiel hotel. The child's
story, as told yesterday morning to Judge
Snyder, left no doubt of the man's in
tentions, and but for the child's frantic
screams, which frightened him oft, h
probably would have accomplished his
purpose. The child stated that '25 cents
which her fsther had given her and which
she was carrying In her hand waa taken
by Stevens. She also stated that when
she first commenced to scream Stevens
slapped her In the face.
Feeling against Stevens was strong yes
terday morning and a large number of
men gathered at police headquarters prior
to his arraignment, but It Is not thought
ony attempt will be made to Interfere
with the low taking Its course. It was
on June IT that Stevens was arrested
charged with the assault on little Chris
tine Chrlstensen and a month later to tho
day he Is again arrested on a similar
charge, his Intended victim, as It la al
leged, being also but 11 years of age.
Counsel for Stevens stated yesterday
that It would' be shown that Stevens
was not In the vicinity of Willow avenue
and Main street at the time alleged. The
police, however, say they have evidence
to the effect that Stevens waa seen there
Just prior to the yime Dohse hitched his
team, leaving his little daughter In the
wagon while he and a friend went Into
a nearby saloon to take a drink. Stevens
was arrested on the description given of
her assailant by the child.

DES MOINES. July 19.-(Special.) Miss
Winifred McKcnxle. a prominent young
school teacher of Hampton, la., filed In
the district court here today a suit for
:B.fii0 against J. B. Gray of this city for
breach of promise of marriage. The filing
of the suit discloses the fact that Gray
has been married for over a year to Miss
Marie Levtke of 1J06 East Walker street.
In this city, without his friends knowing
anything of It.
Miss McKehzle charges In her suit that
she and Gray began going together In IRK),
seventeen years ago. He Is now 00 years
old and she JO. She charges that with
promises and protestations of marriage he
put off the day and she was waiting
patiently till she learned of his elopement
to Chicago last summer and marriage there
to Miss Leveke, a school teacher of this
city. Then she started action to recover
$26,000 for her wounded feelings.
The suit la enhanced m Interest because
of the fact that Gray Is but lately fallen
heir to a considerable fortune left by his
father, who died recently worth about
$300,000. Gray la estimated to be worth at
least $100,000. Further Interest attaches to
the suit because Gray la an unele of
Harry Gray of this city, who recently set
tled a breach of promise suit by paying
Dr. Georgia Stewart of this city $1,800.
