Ho was found locked in a Northwestern road freight car Thursday afternoon suf fering from the effects of a two days' In carceration. Five years ago Murphy was a painter by trade In his home city of Grand Rap ids, Mich., but an accidental fall from a ladder while at work scared him out of the occupation and he chose woodcutting and common labor Instead of ladder climb ing and rope swinging with brush and paint bucket Drifting out west, he was recently em ployed on a bridge building gang at Sher idan, .Wyo. But 111 luck got htm again, for a scaffolding gave way, he fell fifteen feet and a wheelbarrow filled with tools and building material came down on his back, Injuring him perhaps permanently. That was ten days ago. He had to Quit work and so started to "bum" his way home by way of this city. Reaching Coun cil Bluffs Tuesday, he went to sleep In a boxcar In the afternoon, tired and ex hausted from his hike and feeljng pains In the small of his back from the accident Before he was released from the car, which was locked while he was within, he went without food and water for forty eight hours and was only semi-conscious when taken out by Joe Bollte, an employe at the Union Pacific freight house In Omaha, where the car was taken and opened for loading. Police Surgeon Newell attended him at the city Jail and aays he niay send Murphy to a hospital, as It Is at leant a bad case of exhaustion. The man is DO years of age.

The Board of Review, which has been in session since June 15, will finish the work of adjusting the assessment of the city tax commissioner today. It Is not pre sumed that any more complaints will be offered. The only protest of Importance was that of the Omaha Wat.er company which was overruled. The assessment of the Omaha Electric Light company was Increased $80,000 on account of the omission of the value of the franchise In the tax commissioner's books. It was found that the return had not been made in the case of the Bradford-Kennedy Lumber com pany.

They filled the Labor Temple to the doors to watch a aeries of boxing exhibitions between local celebri ties and a six-round contest between Guy Buckles of Omaha and Mike Malone of Denver. It was the first entertainment by the Owls and was certainly a howling suc cess. For the first time In months the ex citement got high enough so that remarks were passed by the audience and the local men were cheered for the good points they made In the ring. Strangely enough the excitement was not centered on the main event of he evening, but on the match between Fitz gerald of the Shamrock club and Hansen of Omaha. This go had been scheduled for six rounds, but Fitzgerald fell In a wrest ling bout at the club and Injured his arm. He compromised with Hansen on three rounds.

In the go between Brosnlhan and Mc Carty of the Shamrock club, Brosnlhan knocked McCarty out of the box In the first round by a hard one to the stomach and, after McCarty had taken three count?, following, while the other was groggy with a straight punch to the face, ""he excitement was great at this point of the exhibition. Mike Malone from Denver and Guy Buck les fought a six-round contest with hon ors practically even, although Malone seemed a little weak In the last round. In the first round, also, Buckles had the best of it In the four rounds between Malone rushed the fight at a pretty fast clip, but at no time did either come near a knockout. Callahan and Smith fought four rounds In the beginning as a preliminary, and two boys, Gaughan and Sweeney, were put on as an extra number. Maarle City OomI. Mason G.
