A hearing in the Clay county district court at Spencer was held before Judge Hudson, of Pocahontas, recently on a motion by Attorney-General Everett, of Des Moines, to stike Sec. 14 of the petition., •The'cotirt refused to strike all of the section', 'but did order the Illowing paragraph stricken: That even If such an election Is held and state senator chosen, that said election is null void, and should be held for naught for the reasons referred to. Attorneys for the petitioners claim that this action was not prejudicial to their case, for they are hot relying on a holding that an election without redistrlctlng would be illegal. They are resting mainly on Stc. 11, which has Water-Light Meter Owners Get Checks on Council's Order A large batch of checks from the city on repurchase of light and water meters from owners was issued last week, and a complete lisl of persons and amounts paid may be found in city bills published in today's Advance.

The amounts paid vary accord ing to the make of meter, age, ant condition. The prices were recent ly published in the city ordlnanc concerning the taking over of the meters. • Property owners have severa months yet in" which to. make a settlement before, all meters, .be come the property of the city.

Ubben Winter Jr. pleaded guilty last night to a charge of being an accessory in the burglary, and was sentenced to ten years in prison by Judge G. W. Stillman. He was given a bench parole into custody of Sheriff Loss. Vernon Winter, 18; was shot in the left thigh Sunday night by Marshal Stott, of Titonka, when the youth was fleeing down an alley. The marshal had called three times for the youth to stop, and then had fired two shots into the air to make him stop. He continued to run, and Stott then fired at the youth's legs, the gun rising slightly so he was hit in the thigh. The wound is not believed serious. Vernon and his brother Ubben Winter Jr., 27, were then arrested at their car parked off the main steet as the marshal ran out of the alley and saw them. The pair are accused of robbing the Breen pool hall, and a checkup this morning disclosed two cartons of cigarets, four candy bars, four packages of gum, and two combs missing. Marshal Lies In Wait. Marshal Stott was making his usual rounds of the stores about 11:30 Sunday nlghtf, and as he went to the pool hall he heard someone moving around, . in the^ dark in the building. The front of the building had not been touched, so Stott went to the alley, where he saw that a screen and window had been broken. 'He then laid in wait for the burglar; to come 1 out; and>' saw Vernon clamber but of the window. As soon as the-youth was -clear he commanded him to stop and put up his hands. The youth instead started to run, dodging in and around buildings with the marshal in pursuit. Twice more the marshal yelled for the boy to stop, and he then fired two shots into the air. Then in order to stop him he fired • at the legs. The youth did not drop when struck by the bullet, but ran around the corner into the side street, where he reached the car where his brother was waiting. At this time Stott came up, and arrested both. Stott then called Dr. Hamstreet to care for the wounded boy, and called. Sheriff Cagey .

The gun was a 32 calibre ' and the bullet Went only through flesh, either missing the bone entirely or ibarely nicking it. The bullet went clear through, plowing through about six inches of flesh. Not the Only Instance,, 'Continued 'burglaries of a similar nature in the county in recent months have annoyed officers and businessmen. There is seldom any great amount of merchandise taken, and it is believed that several youths have secured cigarets and candy by the same methods. Officers sometime ago made every effort to discover the culprits, but identification was missing, and evidence difficult to secure, About the only way in which such a burglar can be taken is to catch one at the scene at the time. .Officers are also up against a tough . proposition in - such an arrest, for if the youths had been professionals they would have carried guns, and shot at anyone who tried to stop them. In the dark it is impossible to recognize a running person. Marshal Stott was complimented by the Algona officials on his good marksmanship in shooting at the legs and hitting the mark. It was his duty to stop the youth, and he accomplished the purpose without doing" permanent damage to the youth.
