The bull moose sheds Its horns early
fit the summer or late In the spring-. By
the middle of the summer the new shoots
are Ilk velvety k'.obs, and the last thing
the creature thlni. ; of is to use them In
combat Yesterday was a midsummer
lay, consequently there was no fight In
the bull moose convention that met In
the county court house In the afternoon.
After a wait It dwindled Into two
speeches and ' the Impressing of eighteen
men, few of whom werepresent, Into
serving as delegates to the convention at
De Moines next Wednesday. . .
tt was an Interesting gathering, 'for
everyone present expected something to
happen, but no one knew who was going
to make It happen or what It was going
to be when It did happen. Half an hour
passed In silence after the crowd gath
ered before the leader developed or dis
closed themselves. Then one of them sug
gested that an organisation should be
perfeeted and that a chairman and a
secretary be named. The name of Bev.
A. B, Adams, pastor of the Epworth
Methodist church, was mentioned, and
before he had a chance to express hlm
self was unanimously elected. He came
i"; forward with the remark that "The blood
ef the martyrs is the life of the church"
" and asked tns pleasure of the conven--I
tlon. Btymest Stevenson was selected In
v the lame manner for secretary and was
an equally willing sacrifice. Then the
. business waa quickly transacted. Thede
, elalen, though not announced, had been
r reached by the leaders not to select a
aunty ticket, but merely to permit the
'..convention to choose delegates to the
a atats convention, and If that convention
proved to b mad up of fighting atuft
" to call another local meeting later and
name the oounty tlokei ,
'.' Delegates Apportion,
The apportionment of the delegate to
th Pea Molnea gathering waa fixed at
' eighteen and Robert Bruce Wallace asked
that Dr. Bpauldlng of Avooa be called
, upon to assist Chairman Adams In
testing them. The two gentlemen did
(heir work with suspicious alaorlty and

county offices who had avowed their de
sire to go on the ticket nothing further
remained to be done but to talk a little.
W. H. Killpack was called upon and
made one of his usual polished speeches,
lauding Roosevelt without too vigorously
disparaging Taft. His loyalty to Teddy
was rewarded by the plaudits of the
Robert B. Wallace was Jess politic and
a whole lot stronger. He was ready to
chase after the bull moose wherever he
might go.
Mr. Killpack, at the suggestion of Mr.
Wallace, again took the floor to explain
the word "regularity" as applied to the
national ticket and the state ticket He
said Governor Carroll and the other
standpatters were supporting Taft but
had Intimated that they might no support
the state ticket on account of the steam
rollerlng of the progressives at the Des
Moines convention. "Governor Carroll
and the standpatters then say," said Mr.
Killpack, "that they are 'regular while
supporting only two men on the ticket
and we claim we are 'regular when bolt
ing two men and supporting all of, the
rest of the republican ticket"
No information could be given concern
ing the 'date of the moose meeting to
name the full county ticket, but it will be
some time later In the season when the
velvety knobs have hardened Into cruel
prongs capable of shedding rivers of gore.

Democrats Name
Graham and Richards
For Two Judgeships
The democratic convention of the Fif
teenth Judicial district wa held yesterJiy
afternoon in the south room of the county
court house, at the same hour when the
bull moosers were; tearing up the rubber
matting in the north room. The ierco
crats held a very peaceable and otdarly
meeting. W. F. Cleveland of Harlan,
twice democratic candidate for congress
in the Ninth district, was made chair,
man, and C. O. Hunt of Audubon was
made secretary. Mr. Cleveland a
pretty talk, in which he forecasted demo
cratic success this year, and urged the
convention to select two candidates for
the district court bench worthy of the
confidence of the people of the district
and who would honor the bench if they
should be elected.
The convention was very brief, and al
though the number of delegates present
was quite small, It was found '.hat all
of the nine counties were represented
with the delegate present Instructed to
cast the full vote of each county. . There
were no resolutions offered and no
speeches made except the prefatory re
mark of the chairman, and after tho
organization waa perfected the delegate
immediately proceeded to the work before
them. , v
' Fremont Benjamin nominated J. M.
Graham of Audubon for the short term,
limited by vacancy occasioned when
Judge Green resigned to go to congress,
and the nomination was seconded by a
delegate from , Shelby county. Emmet
Tlnley presented for the full term the
name of Paul Richards of Montgomery
county. Before the motion prevailed to
make both nominations by acclamation
J. J. Hughes said It would be wis to
ascertain if the candidate would accept
Mr. Richard was present and was called
out He stated hi willingness to do any
thing for the party, but declared his po
sition was a peculiar one. "I happen to
be the only democratic lawyer In Mont
gomery county," said he, "and the boys
never fail to use me at each election.
This year they have nominated me for
democratic candidate for county attorney,
and if I accept this nomination I wilt
have to withdraw there, when they be
lieve I stand a show of winning
It was an embarrassing position and
the convention adjourned for five minutes
while a number of the leaders gathered
around Mr. Richards. A number of them
were Red Oak men and they finally pre
vailed. The statement was then made
by Secretary Hunt that he doubted if
hi fellow townsman, Mr. Graham, would
consent to surrender his law practice, but
It was decided to nominate him anyway
and then deluge him with letter urging
htm to do hi duty. The nomination
were then quickly made. Analysis shows
they arc also skillfully made. Mr. Rich
ard will be the opponent of Judge Wood
ruff of Mill county, and Graham will
oppose Judge Arthur of Harrison, so that
each will divide the vote of the republi
can nominees where they should be
strongest, in the vicinity of their own
Among the Interested spectators was
Judge L. J. Home of Muscatine, one of
the only two democratic district court
Judge In the state. .

Dutch and Irish
Combat on Diamond
There will be something worth while
at the Athletic ball park today. It will
be the seventh annual combat between
the Dutch and the Irish for the base
ball championship of this part of the
country. At the present time the games
stand four for the Irish and three for
the Dutch, and the Dutch are going to
win today if success lies west of Ham
burg. The Dutch are encouraged by the
fact that they won the game last year
and the Irish are Just as much wrought
up over their defeat and are spurred by
the thirst for revenge. The game Is
to be called at 9:30 o'clock this morn-'
Ing and If necessary it will last all day.
It will be absolutely tree unless some
body wants to contribute "some of the

A writ of habeas corpus was secured
from Judge Arthur In the district court
yesterday to secure the release from the
Christian home orphanage in this city
of Mis Nellie Smith, who was alleged
in the petition to be more than 19 years
old, and whom, it was charged, was
being held against her will. The pe
tition, filed by Attorney W. H. Schurs,
contained a number of sensational al
legation, among them that the young
woman was not only restrained of her
liberty, but that she .was denied per
mission to receive visits from any of her
friends and that her mall was withheld.
The further allegation was made that she
was forced to do menial labor against
her will and without any compensation
whatever. The petition concludes with
the allegation that Mlas Smith 'Is eon
fined as completely as If she were sen
tenced to some state institution for
violation of the criminal statutes."
Investigation shows that every allega
tion 1 untrue. Miss Smith Is not In
the institution or in the state, but is at
the present time, and has been for a
week or two, enjoying a comfortable
home with a family In Nebraska, and is
entirely ignorant of the pending action.
The records of the home In the case
are explicit and clear. Miss Smith was
taken into the home a number of years
ago, and la, one of the most lovable, of
the many girls there. She is now slightly
past 18 years old. About ten months
ago, with her full consent she wa per
mitted to go to the home of a family
at Fort Dodge, la., who had furnished
satisfactory credentials to the home
management After a few months she
returned to the home and said she had
been sent back because he refused to
de what she was told to do. The family
bad an adult paralysed daughter, and
Council Bluffs
among other heavy duties and to lift
her bodily. Her strength was Insuf
ficient and she declined. Letters came
at once from Fort Dodge ordering her to
be sent back. Copies of the correspond
ence show that the request was denied
and the Fort Dodge people were
courteously informed that the home was
not sending oufc house servants. A few
weeks later a woman came from Fort
Dodge and demanded the return of Miss
Smith, followed three weeks later by the
husband with the same demand. The
matter was then dropped for three months.
Last Thursday another woman came
from Fort Dodge, a Mrs. M. A. Brown,
and insisted upon adopting Nellie Smith
at once. .She was told that ''the rules of
the institution required a number of
things and was given one of the adoption
blanks to fill out although told that
Miss Smith was making her home with
another family and would be permitted
to remain If she desired. Mrs. Brown
Is the person who signed the application
for the habeas corpus writ Judge Arthur
fixed the hearing for next Saturday morn
ing, but it is unlikely that the case will
be called-
Manager Lemen said last night that
Miss Smith had not a single demerit
mark and was one of the prize girls of
the institution. Attorney Schurs ad
mitted last night that . Mrs. Brown is a
relative of the persistent Fort Dodge
family. '

William Doner Price, the little 4-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Price
of Hardin township, who was mangled
under a street car, Wednesday afternoon,
died yesterday at the Edmundson hos
pital. Death relieved the brave little fel
low despite the best efforts of the medi
cal staff to save him. The Injuries were
Inflated when the child ran ahead of his
mother at the crossing on Broadway and
North Second street and reached the car
tracks twenty feet ahead of an approach
ing Park line car. The distance was too
short to stop and the child was carried
under the wheels. The car was stopped
with a wheel on the rear trucks resting
on the mangled right arm of the baby.
The mother in her frantic efforts to save
her boy was struck by the car and re
ceived a wound in the temple, which the
brave little fellow tried to staunch with
his uninjured hand while they were being
conveyed to the hospital. The baby died
from the Internal Injuries Inflicted.
Nurse and physicians at the hospital say
he was the bravest boy they ever saw.
The funeral will be held Monday after
noon at 2:30 o'clock at Woodrlng's chapel.
Services will be conducted by Rev. Edgar
Price of the Christian church. Burial will
be In Walnut Hill cemetery.

Park Board Grants
Bight for Carnival
The Board of Park Commissioners yes
terday granted the application of the
Commercial club for the use of Bayllss
park for the autumnal carnival. Chair
man Graham of the board has not been
enthusiastically In favor of the use of
the park by the carnival crowds and when
the decision was finally reached to per
mit Insisted upon several provisions that
have not heretofore been incorporated.
All are Intended to protect the park as
far as possible.
One of the provisions Is that no trucks
or vehicles of any character shall be
driven upon the grounds at any stage
of the carnival or Its preparations. An
other is that no salt or any solution that
will Injure the grass In any degree hall
be thrown upon the lawn. The third pro
vision Is that after the carnival is over
Mlas Smith was obliged to care for her
tire park shall be repaired and cleaned
under the direction of the park board
and that the whole bill for the work
shall be paid W the Commercial club.
Whether the long-threatened Injunction
suit to prevent the use of thepark' for
carnival purposes will now mature is
problematical. Attorney Thomas Q.
Harrison, who prosecuted the suit to ie
strain the Ministerial association from
erecting a big tarpaper tabernacle last
winter and who has announced that he
will not recede from the position then
taken, declined yesterday to say what
action he will now take beyond stating
that he had said all along- there would
be no carnival held In the park and the
further intimation that it would be
known by the 'middle of the week what
was to happen.
