An accident occurred early yesterday
morning when (ha ' fire department re
sponded to the general alarm that was
turned In. when the whole town was
arbuied shortly after midnight by the
tooting ot whistles and the ringing of
feett to signalize the lighting ot the first
botiflre ot the thousands thai wore to
WiUte alt the way across th continent,
marking the route of the Lincoln Memo
Two members ot the band enraged to
play at the ceremonial were slightly In
jured wlion jV fire, tem dashed
Into. the crowd t&qre the driver could
ft'. JL Whaley, leadTror'the band, and
Theodore Larsen. In charge of the baas
Anna, were knocked down. Mr. "Whaley
'was able to resume his duties at his drug
tore before the middle of the day yes
terday, but Mr. Larsen waa obliged to re
main Indoors all day.
No blame 'attaches to the driver ot the
team, Tom Rboney of No.-1-hose com
pany. He thought the fire was real un
til he waa approaching the point where
the bit; bontlro had been started, the
junction ot Peart and South Main streets,
Ho then realised that the purpose was to
add to the general Interest ot the event
by giving the nearly 300 visitors from ad
joining towns who had attended the
booster meetlnff and banquet at the Grand
hotel and the entertainment by the
Xntghts of the Full Moon the chanoe ot
witnessing an exhibition run ot the tire
department, lie approached the crowd
with clanging gong, and all ot those on
the aide between him and the big bonftro
tell back, giving, apparently, a clear
passageway through the crowd. The light
Xrom the fire blinded him so he did not
re the members of the band standing di
rectly ahead of htm on the opposite aide
ot the fire until he waa close to them.
Ml efforts to atop proved fruitless. The
nolM, ot the cheering crowd and the blare
of the band Instruments drowned the
ound of the fire gong and the warning
shouts of those who saw the dancer. Tho
flr team plunged directly through the
compact little circle ot musicians. All
sjot out of the way but Whaley and Lar

and sbeuldera and sustained a sprained

Hallowe'en mischief was reduced to a
minimum last night through the agency
of police activity and improved home
training. Very little real mischief waa
aone, ana hub was confined to the work
ot real hoodlums. It consisted of break.
Ing down fences and tearing oft sates
In some sections of the city where those
things exist and prying off the covers
from coal holes In sidewalks In the busi
ness section of the city. The police
brought In four boys who may be prose
cuted for malicious destruction of prop
erty. They were kept nt the city build
ing for some time after their names and
addresses were taken and were then sent
Some really funny and thoroughly
harmless fun waa made" by healthy
minded girls and boya who dressed up
In ghostly garments and paraded the
streets. Halr-llfttng scares were given
sometimes when these ghostly figures
would suddenly appear In dimly lighted
places. People took kindly to this kind
ot aport and encouraged It.
Many happy Hallowe'en parties oc
curred where similar costumes were
among the entertaining features, and
these youngsters appeared to be having

(Prom a Staff Correspondent)
DBS JIOINB3, Nov. l.-(Spclal Tele,
gram.) After a trial las tin? mora than
a -week, L. W. Basham, administrator of
the estate of John J. Sptllraan. -was
awarded judgment ot JU.IW against the
Qilcago Great Western railroad In dis
trict court. The Judgment la the largest
that haa been returned In a personal In
Jury suit In the district xurt ot Polk
county In more than a year.
Spellman was engineer of one ot the
company's trains and his run was be
tween Des Moines and Oelweln. Ills death
occurred when the train ho was pulling
ran Into an open swttrh In the yards at
Urluar Mauk Tito fur Crime.
The governor todsv issued two regula
tions to bring back persons to Iowa. Ttu
Btate agent for the parole board secured
papers to return from Utah one Jesso
Carper, under sentence from Wayne
county, but paroled and out ot the state
without leave. Papers were Issued to
bring back from Kansas City Joe Don
sker, who absconded with the proceeds
of a sale of a load of potatoes entrusted
to him by a farmer living near Des
Bis Mall tor Auto Owners.
Tho secretary of state today sent out
over 1ft) mall sacks of mall containing
the formal notices to automobile owners
of the time for payment of the automobile
tax and the fact that soon after the
first of the month the number plates
for 191 will be ready to be sent out
Over 70,0X1 car owners will receive their
notices at the same time and the mall
which follows will probably cause con.
gestlon In the automobile department for
a time. The sending out of number
plates for this year has now practically
Car Shortnee Matters.
The car shortage matter In the office
of the secretary of state has been very
light this year, necontly members of
the commission have been called upon to
aid some shippers In seourjne; cars for
th handling of grain chiefly bwause of
the increased demand near the end of
each month when the deliveries are be.
Ing made to the grain markets. But
the sltuaUon u to cars has been rood
most of the time. The rush for coal cars
has not yet commenced, but some of the
coal operators In and around Des Moines
say they have had difficulty securing
cars enough to handle the output ot the
Ilnllronda Under Xew I.nrr.
When tho Iowa workmen's compensa
tion law was enacted It was supposed
that It would have no effect on the rela
tions between the tO.000 railway employes
of the state and their employers, as the
new federal workmen's compensation act
had been enacted and It covers all em
ployes on roads operating in more than
cne state. But the railway companies
operating In Iowa have nearly all In
dicated that they are willing to coma
In under the Iowa law also and to
abandon the common law defenses which
are In vogue. They will make a showlne
for the Iowa commission which will
enable them to take advantage of tha
Iowa law. Thus far only one comnanv
has Indicated unwillingness to come under

of this new law that an attack haa been
