Once more the courts are after them, and again they have been enjoined. What hard luck these railroad managers are having over here in Iowa. During the last two years the commissioners found that while they could fix the rates one road should charge over any part of its own line in Iowa, and while they could, still they didn’t, the consciousness of the power being sufficient joy, they couldn’t tell what the toll would be when the freight had to he carried over m >re than one road. Here was a dilemma. Here was an end to their authority. How terrible. Something which they could not do. Verily, the vast interests of the farmers—the large investments of the manufacturer were in danger. These all-wise and ever-ready “regulators" found something which even they had to admit was beyond their jurisdiction. But the fountain-head of railroad legislation iii Iowa, Governor Larrabee, advised the legislature what must bt* done. The railroad commissioners seconded his efforts. Some of our “country members” found were still iron and ties in place on of Iowa’s railroads, and the rate bill was added. Now the three gentle commissioners and the little lamb, the secretary, in a pasture indeed green with succulent grass. Oh, what delightful fodder. Here was a chance to rasp every railroad interest up the back. But, alas! here comes the B,. (J. Ii. Sc N. and applies to Judge Fairall, at Iowa City, for an injunction and lie, not taking into consideration tin; feelings of the commissioners, or their clerks, issues an order restraining them from “establishing and promulgating joint rates of tariff between said B., C. Ii. it N. and other railroads,” and closes with tin* following admonition: “Now unless you appear thereto on the second Monday of September, A. D., 1890, default will be entered against you and decree rendered thereon according to t he prayer of the. petition, etc.” What terrible luck, and how the Daily Xews will accuse .lodge Fairall of being bought up, etc., etc. Commissioner Smith was in Washington and the sheriff didn’t find him, but Campbell and Doy immediately ran across the rotunda and closeted themselves in with the attorney general. The result of this conference was that General Stone was “instructed” to immediately file a motion for the dissolution of the injunction. Should Judge Fairall still believe the case had better come up iii regular form in Septum per the matter will be taken to tin* supreme court at once, but that body has its hands full and wouldn’t be able to reach a decision until about September. So the poor, innocent commissioners suffer more outrages at the hands of justice and the good people of Iowa will be denied joint rates as established.at the capitol building and be contented with those which the railroads believe experience prompts wise to grant. Two years agnail injunction was granted in t he same court and by the same judge but that was finally settled in favor of the commissioners: at least, not [lushed by the railroad interests very strongly: hut this time the B., C. Ii. A N. mean business and as General Freight Agent C. I). Ives said to a prominent state politician who met him the other day in Cedar Rapids: -‘Shippers along our line are not of one mind in asking for joint rates. If they wen* matters might be different, and we would have given him a trial notwithstanding tin* big loss we would have suffered. But jobbers then* (Cedar Rapids) are alive to tin* fact that joint rates would hurt them just as much as they would tin* road ami we are going to tight the decision of the railroad commissioners and tile law for all we are worth." This mean blood, and the whole law will be examined with microscopic exactness. The flaw in tin* bill ea'iised by the extreme carelessness of, ti est. tin* poor proof reader in the staL* printer's office, who had to read the proof after hours by a dingy lamp—second. that of the legislators, made possible by the laziness of the railroad committee, who. when they introduced the “substitute,” took a printed bill and “scissored" it, instead of rewriting the same and then found the labor of comparison to great. All this will receive attention. Who will win it is hard to say. Of course the rights of the people should bo protected, but no injustice to other interests should be allowed either. The postoffice tight in Des Moines is practically ended. lion. Isaac Brandt, that veteran republican tighter has been assured of Ids appointment. Now, Uncle Isaac, as lie is familiarly called by every voter of East Dos Moines, especially those who attend the primaries is actively engaged in the political warfare, did not happen to be an old soldier, and several of whose main and chief recommendations for the position were the services they gave their country in the late war are now on their ear. A movement has been started but it does not gain much headway, to interfere for no other reason than that Brandt was not an old soldier and several other aspirants were. There is no one but who grants his fitness and worthiness—but an old soldier wanted the place—and the administration in recognizing his ability and services of a loyal civilian who. for nearly fifty years, has worked and toiled for the success of those principles which make the faith of tho republican party, has in their eyes, done the old scarred heroes an injustice. The fight against Brandt will amount to nothing, but the desire for revenge upon his supporters is going to crosscut in the family converts of the party here, even while such a thing is to be regretted. Politically, and otherwise—Hon. Isaac Brandt was entitled to recognition equally as much as his opponents. The distinction he has received is well merited, and among his supporters are many men who wore the blue and faced the gray, but who are willing to allow other reasons to have weight besides a war record. No one wants to say a word against those loyal men who saved a country’s honor and unity, but said a prominent and rising young republican: “If no one can bo elected to an office or given a lucrative appointment unless he has been a soldier and is a member of the G. A. IL, we had better have another war, that some of the rest of us may have an equal show. If the old soldiers were loyal and true thirty years ago. so are we today, and would do just as much for our country as they did. Why should we always be thrust aside? Or, on the other hand, why should these good but misguided people so oppose a man so eminently qualified as Brandt. By such actions they antagonize much of the younger element in our politics who are willing to grant them all they deserve, but want something, at least a few crumbs, themselves.” These remarks were not made by a person who has any grudge against the old heroes, but by one who is a patriotic supporter of their rights, but who is a student of the present political situ-tion and tendencies and does not like to see this spirit of bitterness manifested by the boys in blue. Brandt will be postmaster and will make a splendid officer. All was fair in the fight but now that a division has been reached all should forget their disappointments and work for the common good and firmer unity in party ranks. There is no doubt but what when the republican lines are closed in and kept in marching order they make an army invincible as far as democra-be concerned, bot if petty little spites and personal matters are allowed to enter, sooner or later it will find a “Waterloo.” The Register, or at least its capitol reporter, claims that Governor Boies is considering the question of a special session of the legislature, and that prominent democrats have been in frequent consultation with the governor upon the advisability of such action. Your correspondent can find no confirming evidences of such action, and rather fears the genial Cole has been perhaps imposed upon. The governor, it has be sn said, does this to deal with the complications arising from the present condition of the liquor question. Democracy in Iowa has never shown itself to be remarkably anxious to control or regulate this traffic —and if any party would be benefited by a special session of a legislature, republican in political coloring, why certainly it would be that party who have the majority. The democrats are not going to give their sworn enemies any chance to consider the liquor question in any manner which would give the republican party added laurels. Neither is Governor Boies anxious to saddle- upon the democracy such responsibility. Again with the present complexion of the general assembly there would be no change in the policy of the state upon this subject. Perhaps the gentleman who pens these lines may be mistaken. He hasn't the ability to read men's thoughts and may perhaps be so incompetent he cannot observe the proper tend of political actions, but he can not find any indication of any desire to call a special session and when he asks prominent democrats who he knows to have the ear of the governor, they laugh at him in such a manner he wishes he hadn’t said anything. “Original packages” are good enough for Iowa democracy. They would lik** things to remain just as they are.    Odin. A SAD DROWNING. Two Little Girls Perish in the River at Cedar Rapids. Cedar Rapids, May 31.—Yesterday afternoon a number of children were wading or bathing in the river at a point nearly opposite the lime kilns, distanced half or three-quarters of mile below the B., C. R. & N. bridge. Among them were two little girls, aged 9 and IO years, one the daughter of Charles Isabel, a cooper employed at the packing houso, the other the daughter of Charles Ment-zel, a carpenter employed at the same place. The little ones, becoming tired of simply wading obout on the shallow sandbar, started to wade to the opposite shore, that on which the C. & N. \V. track is situated. They made a portion of the way iii safety, but almost instantly and without warning both walked off what is known as a “step-off” and were quickly carried under by the rapid current. Their playmates, seeing their disappearance, gathered up their clothes, which were left on the bank, and hurried home to give the news. Active measures were at once taken for the recovery of the bodies of the little ones. The police department was notified* and the patrol wagon, with grapples and other dragging apparatus, was sent to the scene of the accident. A large force of men were at work with boats, drags and other means to find the bodies, but at a late hour last night the report was that they had met with no success. The afflicted families both live in that portion of Cedar Rapids which is below the B., C. R. Sc N. railway bridge, commonly known as “Stumptown.” All sympathize with them iii their deep grief. EEDS OF POSTMASTERS. IOWA BREATHES FREELY AGAIN. Drake University Students Congratulate Senator Wilson for His Temperance Victory. Des Moines, May 31.—The faculty and students of Drake University sent the following telegram to Senator Wilson this morning:    “The faculty and students of the Drake University, eight hundred strong, congratulate you upon your magnificent victory in the senate for the temperance millions of America. Iowa breathes freely again. We also have great confidence in our Iowa congressmen. Push the issue to immediate settlement. We hail our temperance chief." FAIRFIELD’S PUBLIC SCHOOL. The Graduating Exercises Last Tuesday Evening. [Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Fairfield. May 31.—On last Tuesday evening occurred the graduating exercises of tho High school. The class e.iis year is comprised of fourteen, thirteen girls and one boy. They all had a part iii the program either with an oration or an essay. The productions all were the result of careful study and speak well for those who have had charge of their training. The college quartette was gresent with their pleasing songs to vary the program. Wednesday at 8 p. rn. the High school alumni gave a reception to the present outgoing class at the pleasant residence of Mr. S. .J. Chester. A short musical and literary program was rendered to tho delight of all present, which was followed by delicious refreshments and at a late hour the company departed to their homes having enjoyed themselves heartily. EDITOR PERKINS DECLINES. The Noted Republican Newspaper Man Will Not Run for Congress. Sioux City, la., May 31.—In a card published Thursday evening Geo. D. Perkins, editor of the Sioux City Journal, positively refuses to be a candidate before the republican convention of this congressional district. The democrats are preparing to make a strenuous contest in the district, which has been a republican stronghold, but in the state election last fall the counties of the district returned a majority of only 400 against Boies. The democratic sentiment is in favor of the nomination of Senator Whiting, of Monona county, who made so strong a run against Larrabee for governor. A Weather Service Man Appointed. [Special to The Hawk-Eye..1 Des Moines, May 31.—The executive committee of the State Fair society today recommended to the governor the appointment of John R. Sage, the wellknown newspaper correspondent of the Inter Ocean in Iowa, as director of the Iowa weather service. The governor. by the terms of the bill, must appoint one who is so recommended. The appointment will be temporary until January and then be made permanent. Mr. Sage is undoubtedly the best qualified iii the state, having made meteorology a life study. Des Moines* Boodlers. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, May 31.—The matinee that was to have taken place in the district court this a. rn. when the aldermen were to have been arraigned failed to materialize on account of the absence of Judge Kavanaugh, who is in Chicago. It is expected that they will be brought up Monday or Tuesday. “On the other hand, Pond s Extract, recommended, endorsed, prescribed by the most eminent members of the medical faculty, has grown and grown into public favor, ever onward: its reputation world wide and well established; its virtues indisputable. The verdict of the people, the experience of eve household, have awarded it the highest nu____ in the list of curative agencies, because of its inherent worth, and that it does all it proposes to do.”—Sew York Graphic. Died From Lock-Jaw. Boone, la., May 31.—A five-year-old daughter of J. JC. Hoefer died here Thursday from lock-jaw, caused by an ulcerated tooth. Np table should be without a bottle of Angostura Bitters, the world renowned Appetiser of exquisite flavor. Beware of counter-felts. Mr. Clarkson to Investigate Them on a Lengthy Tour. On His Return From the West He Will Tender His Resignation, to Take Eftect at Once—A Gunner’s Fate—Capital News. Washington, May 31.—First Assist ant Postmaster General Clarkson leaves to-morrow for an extended official tour of the far west. At Des Moines he will be joined by his family, and will at once proceed to Seattle, Washington. From that point diverging tours will be made through Washington and Oregon. Later he will visit San Francisco and other leading cities and towns of California. The prime object of the tour is to obtain a thorough knowledge of the postal needs for the Pacific slope. Clarkson is of the opinion that the far west is entitled to better facilities and believes that a western man, acquainted with its peculiarities and the rapidity of western development is best able to judge of its postal needs. He will make a close inspection of the service at all important centers, and on his return, in about a month or six weeks, he will make such recommendations as the situation demands. On Clarkson's return to Washington he will tender to the president his resignation, to take effect immediately. Clarkson’s Probable Successor. Washington, May 31.—It is stated on the authority of an influential official in the postoffice department that Second Assistant Postmaster General Whitfield, of Ohio, will not succeed First Assistant Clarkson. A man new to the service, it is said, will be chosen, and his name will likely be either Lewis T. Mitchell, attorney general of Indiana and chirman of the republican committe of that state, or Samuel F. Fessenden, of Connecticut, at present a member of tin* executive committee of the republican national committee. Michener has for some time contemplated removing here to practice law at the end of the approaching campaign, and the position of first assistant postmaster-general would, he thinks, give him a good introduction here. Mr. Clarkson leaves for the Pacific slope very soon, probably to-morrow, and it is understood he will not again take up tho official business before him. KILLED AT TARGET PRACTICE. Terrible Accident on the United States Steamer Alliance. Washington, D. C., May 31.—A report has been received at the navy department from Commander Henry C. Taylor, commanding the United States steamer Alliance, now on lier way to China, stating that on tho morning of the 9th inst., while the ship was cruising in the Mediterranean and the crew was at target practice. Boatswain's Mate J. C. McGowan was instantly killed by the premature explosion of a sixty-pounder breech-loading rifle. He was captain of a gun and was in the act’of locking the breech mechanism when the cartridge exploded, blowing tho plug entirely through his body. THE PRESIDENT AT PITTSBURG. Holds a Reception and Meets the Scotch-Irish Congress. Pittsburg, May 31.—President Harrison and party arrived in this city, this morning. They were received by Hie mayor and escorted by the military to a hotel. The president held a reception at the mechanical hall of the exposition building at nine o’clock this morning. Three thousand people shook hands with him. Ile was the guest of the Scotch-Irish congress after the reception. The meeting was addressed by Governor Campbell, of Ohio. BAPTISTS MUST NOT DRINK. An Iowa Conference Urges Churel! Members to Vigorous Anti-Liquor Action. Council Bluffs, May 31.—The Northwest Scandinavian Baptists’ conference yesterday adopted resolutions denouncing the liquor traffic and its supporters. The resolutions were that the liquor traffic is a curse and conclude: therefore be it Resolved, That we absolutely abstain from the use of all liquor as a beverage and support such men for office, both national, state, county and . city, as will pledge themselves :o work for laws prohibiting the manufacture of liquor and its sale.” HE LOVED ELECTA. with his arm in a sling appeared upon the streets of Bedford and went begging from door to door, exhibiting his badly blistered hand and arm. which he said had been done at Creston. He tallied in every respect with the desperado wanted in Des Moines county, and Sheriff Bradley arrested him upon suspicion and telegraphed the authorities at Burlington. SAW THE JOHNS MURDERERS. A Penitentiary Convict Gives Valuable Testimony Before the Grand Jury at Eldora.] Eldora, la., May 31.—The grand jury is still hard at work on the Henry Johns murder case, and will not finish for another week. The only evidence which has been made public is that, of William Jones, a convict, brought here from the penitentiary. He was here when Johns was killed and claims he saw and identified the parties who did the sheeting. He claims to have been hiding in a slough, and the murders passed by him. so he could also distinguish their voices and conversation. Should Marland Rice be indicted, seven or eight other men are likely to be implicated with them. THE CASE DISMISSED. [Special to The Hawk-Eve.J Eldora, la.. May 31.—The grand jury in the case of Marx and Rice who were brought here from Cali fornia charged with the murder cif Henry Johns failed to indict, and they have just been discharged by Judge Stevens. An attorney conversant with the evidence brouglii before the grand juryjpays:    “A mistake has been ma^vju finding a bill for indictment. As matters stand, eight or nine persons are menaced with charges that cannot be set aside except by trial. Public feeling has been from the start disposed to consider the arrest of Marx and Rice as a serious mistake and it seems this view was correct as the grand jury has failed to indict after making a very thorough investigation. Even going so far as to personally inspect the place where the shooting of Johns occurred. A transcript of evidence taken before the grand jury is not obtainable as the clerk has been ordered to seal all papers and place them in his vault. Presumably for future reference. THE OAKLAND HORROR. A Corrected List of the Dead—Further Particulars. San Francisco, May 31.—At midnight all the bodies recovered at the bridge accident have been identified. Parties are still at the wreck searching the bed of the creek, but it is believed that no more lives were lost. The following is a correct list of the victims: Captain Thomas Dwyer, of Sacramento; F. R. Irwin. Oakland; Henry S. Aantis and daughter Florence, Misses Katie and Nellie Kearns, Matthias Williams, E. R. Robinson. Miss Bryan O’Connor. Martin S Kelly, Lingui Lalatesta and Allilio, his son, all of San Francisco, and IL S. Auld, of Honolulu. No additional bodies have been recovered from the Oakland estuary where the train was wrecked yesterday afternoon. This leaves the list of identified at thirteen. Engineer Dunn is still missing, but it is not thought he was drowned. A statement is made that he was seen by one of the Oakland railway officials a short time after the accident. THE BIG LAND SUIT. Tile United States vs. The Des Moines Navigation Company at Ft. Dodge. Ft. Dodge, May 31.—The trial of the great suit by the United States against, the Des Moines Navigation company and those who have purchased lands from that company will be commenced next Tuesday before Judge Shieras here in the federal court. The lands involved amount to about one hundred and ten thousand acres and are worth two million dollars. This is regarded as a final test of the rights of settlers and parties who bought the lands from the state thirty-two years ago. The settlers will be represented by Attorney General Stone and Whiting S. Clark and the other side will be represented very probably by Catch, Connor and Weaver, of Des Moines, who have been regular attorneys of the Litchfield heirs and other owners for many years. This is one of the most important court trials of its kind ever had in the state of Iowa. A Truant Iowa Husband Nabbed by the Officers. Omaha, Neb., May 31.—For several weeks the usually quiet little town of St. Charles, Iowa, has been racked from center to circumference by a social scandal, in which J. Z. Groves, a prominent hotel man, who is not only a husband, but the father of seven children, has been playing a star part. About six weeks ago Mrs. Groves noticed that her husband was spending considerable of his spare time in the kitchen of the hotel, where Electa Sovereign, a fair brunette of twenty-three summers, labored with the pots and kettles. Several curtain lectures were read to the husband, and each time he impressed upon his wife that he was looking after Electa in a fatherly way, but Mrs. Groves had her suspicions. For a few days she nursed her anger, kept her suspicions to herself and watched. It was not long until the watch was rewarded, but even then she remained mum. The next day she went before the grand jury of Madison county at Winterset, and upon her testimony on May IO an indictment was found, charging both the man and the girl with the crime of adultery. They got wind of what had happened and, after drawing his money, several hundred dollars, from the bank, Groves and his paramour fled, boarding the night train and coming to Ibis city. The girl at once went to her sister's, a Mrs. Logan Stowe, residing at Twenty-sixth and Franklin streets, where she introduced Groves as a dear friend. Groves feared trouble and the next day left for Plattsmouth, bidding Electa an affectionate adeu and telling her that he would call again and then they would go west, where they would live in happiness and seclusion ail the days of their mortal lives. Electa was satisfied with this wicked love, but feeling that she ought to do something in the way of carving out a home in the wilderness, she applied for the position of a domestic and was ac eepted by J. W. Wardell, -who lives at 1703 St. Mary's avenue. Letters breathing words of hot love came from Groves with surprising regularity. telling the girl to brace up, as he was about to start on the western trip. The Iowa officers were not idle, and by communicating with the police in this city were enabled to locate both of the parties, and yesterday they swooped down upon them; one coming here and the other going to Plattsmouth. When the girl was confronted by an officer, she denied ever knowing Groves, but on the way to the station broke down and admitted that she could not help loving Mr. Groves, as he was so kind and such a beautiful man. Groves was taken to Council Bluffs Thursday night, where he spent the time in jail, and to-day both he and the girl will be taken to Iowa. Supposed Desperado Captured. Bedford, la., May 31.—A reward of $300 has been offered by the authorities of Des Moines county for one Eddie Wittee, against whom there is an indictment and who has fled from justice. Thursday a rakish looking young fellow IS TIRED OF HIS POLICY. Salisbury’s Ministers Want African Matters Pushed. Our Berlin Budget—The Emperor Keeps Things Hot Regarding the Negotiations With England, Despite His Crippled Condition. London, May 31.—The Chronicle is persistent in its endeavors to goad Lord Salisbury into immediate action toward maintaining the rights of England in Africa and there is a suspicion that its utterances are inspired by some one closely associated with the premier in official life. It is pretty well known that Lord Salisbury's policy of inaction in Africa is not shared by all of his ministerial colleagues, and popular opinion is slowly veering toward a demand for a clearer explanation of the government's reasons for playing ino Germany's hands than has yet been given. The passive policy of Eng-and has also attracted wide attention in Germany and emboldened the Berlin press to advise the application of more vigor to the German operations in Africa. The Berlin Post professes to see infallible signs of the early downfall of Lord Salisbury's government and declares that Germany is now in a position of absolute independence of British public opinion in regard to Africa. In fact, evidence is not lacking in any direction to show that Germany does not care a rap what the British think of her African policy. It is semi-oftieially announced that the statement that the presentment of their African boundary claims, as urged by the German colonists, has caused irritation on the part of England is false. England feels that the German government is certain to refuse to adopt as its own tin* extreme views of its colonists in Africa. Band, until one almost forgot whether h? was in fairyland or only in a ball room, two things which are pretty much alike after all.    _ THE BEAUTIES OF OUR OWN COUNTRY. A GRAVE ON A LONELY ISLE. A Train Wrecker Indicted. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, May 31.—The grand jury this morning brought an indictment of train wrecking against Win. Piper. His bonds were fixed at $4,000. Piper is the man who is accused of wrecking a Rock Island train near Winterset switch on East thirteenth street some time ago, and has only lately recovered from the effects of his injuries received at the time. _ A Cow Causes a Murder. Kansas City, May 31.—Enoch Link, a blacksmith, was shot and killed to-day by Frederick Sorter at Quinder, a suburb of this city. Two years ago Link shot Sorter’s cow which had strayed upon the latter's premises. This caused a bitter quarrel between the men which has continued ever since._ The Texas Sporting Palace Fire. Fort worth, Texas, May 31.—Up to noon to-day only tw’o deaths have resulted from the fire. The deaths wrere caused from the jumping of men from the windows of the spring palace after they had saved many women and children. How to Boil Cabbage. To avoid a horrible odor, which too often fills the house when cabbage or other green vegetables are boiling, follow these simple directions: Put your cabbage in a net and when you have boiled it five minutes in the first pot of water lift it out, drain ‘for a few seconds and place carefully in a second pot which you must have full of fast boil ing water on the stove. Empty the first water away and boil your cabbage till tender in the second.—Good Housekeeping. A Matilda A.

The celebrated Van Orden corset, for which the undersigned has been the exclusive agent in Burlington for the past seven years, is daily becoming more popular. It is worn by a large number of ladies of the leading families of the city, and they are unanimous in com mending it as being the most healthful, durable and comfort-giving corset ever worn.

Berlin, May 31.—[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.]—Throughout the week the emperor has kept his secretaries and ministers actively at work. He was displeased at the delays in the negotiations with England regarding Africa, and took entire control of the matter. After several conferences with the British ambassador and the heads of the colonial department, proposals were fixed upon, which, it is thought will prove acceptable to Lord Salisbury. Briefly, they are that the German sphere shall extend to the limits of the Congo State from the northern extremity of Fanganyka to Albert Nyanza; that Uganda and the British Utiyoro shall be neutral ground and that the navigation of the lakes shall be free. The British ambassador evidently thought these bases good enough to justify a resumption of the discussion as he has recalled Lord Salisbury's envoy and the matter will be reopended. A heavy struggle is expected over the matter. Major Wissman comes about June 23 and Dr. Peters early in July, each loaded with facts and reasons in support of the German claims. The minor state of seige ends in Leipsic on .lune 28, and if the government docs not renew it the fact will signalize the determination of the authorities to cease. Tile special socialist Volksblatt of the Saxon government has asked the bundesrath to prolong the law. This demand has aroused the emperor who desires to place before the bundesrath data in support of a non-renewal of the measure. The official tendency here now is in accordance with the emperor's desire to give the socialists a “freer breath." The bundesrath's assent to permit the socialist law to expire is doubtful. The Hamburger Xachriehten predicts an inevitable insurrection when the restraints on the proletariat are removed. adds: “When the guns have been piked. God knows what will happen. Perchance the bloodshed following a re-olt will have salutary influence upon the social organism but it is certain the renewal of the repressive measures will be pitiless. Otherwise the troubles wlil again arise and the gangrene of soeial-sm may rot even the army.” The Nach-dclitcn doubtless reflects Bismarck’s opinion, which continues to influence the members of the bundesrath. Bismarck, in a speech to the delegates of the polytechnic academies who presented him with an address, reminded them of the value of the idea of unity permeating Germany. The people who ascribed to him the phrase that unity could only be established by blood and iron, misunderstood his saying. What he meant was that the king at that time ought to have as much power as possible in order that in case of need he might throw all the blood and Iron into the scale. Fortunately Germany has got past that now*, and the greatest fortune for the country was peace. He did not believe a German emperor would ever look upon a map with the Napoleonic lust of conquest in his heart. Emperor William was able to-day for the first time since last Sunday's accident to hobble about the room on crutches. Several of the small bones of the ankle were broken and the whole leg is contused. The doctors insist on his taking a longer rest.

The nomad of the desert i< no more restless than the citizen of this great country, where tin* all possessing feeling comes on that brain and body are insisting that their possessor should go somewhere, then tin* question arises:    Where?

It [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Carthage, 111.. May 31.—The mystery that surrounds the disappearance of handsome Ella Cordell from her home in Industry. McDonough county. Illinois, on the 26th of May, deepens every day. Miss Cordell is a young lady of a Unit twenty-five years of age. very intelligent and one who commands the respect of all who know her. She started from the home of Dr. IU M. Creel, with whom sin* was living, on Friday. May 25th, to visit a sister in Bowen, Illinois. She went to Macomb. Illinois, where sin* stayed over night and then took the moring train for Golden, where »he was la>t seen. Much anxiety was aroused in the minds of her friends and relations and an imme-mediate inquiry instituted. It was ascertained that at Golden. 111., she purchased a ticket for Keokuk, Iowa. While in i the depot she accidentally discharged a revolver which she was examining. It has been ascertained that a revolver be-longining to a son of Dr. Creel was missing and it i> probable that she took it with her. This discovery lei! to a thory of suicide which has been advocated by many people. However, there are a number of lier friends who have refused to believe in that theory and think she took the revolver as a matter of precaution in traveling alone. The greatest excitement was occasioned by the discovery this afternoon on a lonely island in Crooked creek, some ten miles east of this .place, of a newly made grave which has recently been rifled of its contents. The appearance of the excavation clearly shows that a boily clothed in drapery wax buried there and afterwards exhumed. It is the general belief that the young lady had been enticed away by some man who may have known her while she lived in Industry. or had merely met lier at Golden. and that site had been foully dealt with by him who afterwards hurried her remains in this gloomy spot. Fearing detection he has probably removed the body and left the grave tenantless as found In the two fishermen. Hundreds of people from Industry. Fountain Green and neighboring towns are searching through the woods of Creeked Creek bottom to-night for the girl's remains, which are supposed to have been hidden in some thicket. A large reward has been offered by the young girl's friend for her discovery or the recovery of lier remains. stable at night; offen in summer, and ©f turbances will render houses adjacent, plaintiffs pray for a polling defendants contemplated, and hearing the injunct nent.

MINISTER REID’S BALL. A Brilliant Society Event at the French Capital. Paris, May 31.—The sumptuous hotel occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Whitelaw Reid in the Avenue Hoche was ablaz* with light Wednesday evening and there was gay music and dancing. It was the occasion of a ball given by the minister's hospitable wife, and designed especially for the pleasure of her young friend both French and American. Then, if never before. Columbia’s fair daughters sojourning in Paris had an unlimited opportunity of waltzing, flirting and possibly, in their delightful unceremonious fashion, of snubbing the choice collection of elegant French noblemen who rallied from the various aristocratic faubourgs to meet them. At 10:00 p. rn. the guests had not yet begun to arrive in the court yard, and the imposing entrance being occupied by sundry liveried attendants, who stood about like statues in their immaculate garments and frozen smiles. Presently the carriages began to roll up and soon the avenue, for a block in either direction, was alive with them. Until after midnight Mr. and Mrs. Reid were kept busy welcoming their friends, and it was getting on to one o'clock when a cotillon was started. This was led by Vicomte Leon de Janze. who acquitted himself of the delicate functions to the satisfaction and admiration of all. The scene in the ball room was very brilliant. To describe the richness and variety of the ladies’ toilets would require a page, and even then it would give but a faint idea of the reality. Parisian dressmakers had been given carte blanche and and covered themselves with glory, at the same time coveririg, or partially at least, their graceful clients with combinations of satins and silks and laces wonderful to behold. There were diamonds, too, flashing everywhere, and pearls, and better than either, scores of pairs of laughing eyes. All this kaleidoscopic splendor went spinning and gliding over the polished floor under the pink-tinted electric lights, which looked like illuminated rose leaves, past banks of foliage plants and fragrant flowers, | swaying to the strains of the Tsigane Mr. L. B. Doughty Arises to a Question of Personal Privelige. Aledo, 111., May 30.—Editor Hawkeye:—The question on our streets since yesterday morning has been who was the author of the letter from Aledo condemning the memorial sermon delivered by Rev. .I D. Walkinshaw. on Sunday evening last. As the letter has been attributed to me, because it is known that many years of my life were devoted to newspaper work direct, and that I still occasion^ write for the press, I wish not only to emphatically deny the authorship of said letter, but to say that I never listened to a sermon more appropriate to the occasion; that I thought it the best memorial sermon I ever heard, and I fully endorse the resolutions of the Grand Army of the Republic post and Sons of Veterans—tin* former of which I belong to—sent to you by this mail. I wish to say further that even had the discourse merited criticism at my hand. I could not so have demeaned myself as to have stooped to a scurrilous personal attack upon its author, who responded cheerfully to the invitation of our post to officiate on the occasion, and who was suffering at the time under physical disabilities to an extent which would have deterred many from attempting to preach at all.    - No. I do not wish anyone to think that I did. or could write such an article. L. B. Doughty. THE OTHER VIEW. Aledo, IU., May 30.—En. H awk-Eye: Enclosed I send you for publication reso-lutions adopted by the G. A. R. post of this city relative to the correspondence in yesterday's issue entitled “Offended Veterans." in which Rev. J. I). Walkin-haw was basely misrepresented because his dLcours** hid not till the id*-a of Your Correspondent.'’ who certainly based his article on personal hat** instead of facts. For the discourse or sermon was a masterly effort, and so admitted by all. and in which honor was given to whom honor was due—to the brave who had fallen in all the wars for the creation and the preservation of our nation and th** liberties we enjoy to-day. The service was full of meaning to the intelligent, and reflected credit upon the speaker who lauded the heroic dead as well as the American soldiery. We a-k the publication of the resolutions in justice to Mr. Wilkinshaw, who served his country in the same grand cause with those of the organization who adopted them. Yours truly. G. B. Morgan. ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. Aledo, 111.. May 30.—Editor Hawk-Eye:    Will you kindly publish the fol lowing resolutions which were presented and unanimously adopted by the Warren Shedd Post No. 262 G. A. IL. and Aledo Camp No. 240. on there return to the hall from the ceremonies of decorating graves at the cemetery. Before the vote was taken The Hawk-Eye article was read aloud to the assembly: Whereas. An article appeared in The Burlington Daily Hawk-Eye of May 29, as correspondence from Aledo, representing in substance, that Rev. J. D. Walkinshaw in his memorial sermon of Sunday night. May 25th. spoke in such a manner as to cause offense to veterns, and lack of sympathy; therefore ResrAretl, That we as members of the Grand Army of the Republic and Sons of Veterans assembled this Memorial morning do hereby emphatically condemn the whole tenor and sentiments of The Hawk-Eye letter and deny that any offense wa** given or any cause for it in in the sermon. Resolved. That our hearty thanks be now-extended to Rev. D. Walkinshaw for his kindly sympathetic sermon on Sunday niirht last for the unse lfish interest and intelligent anti willing assistance he ha- always taken in and given to the cause of the veterans and their noble order.

Every member of the quite extensive McGibeny family is a trained musician of excellent quality anil “to the manor born”—theirs are natural gifts carefully cultivated. From the paternal head and front of the aggregation down to the graduated scale Master Leo, the baby comedian and cynosure of all eyes and hearts in the audience, the musical element pervades the gamut and finds apt and pleasing expression. Each member on the program received hearty applause and eight vociferous encores attested the splendid impression made. Master Dockic's clarinet first aroused the latent enthusiasm of the house, which was intensified by the succeeding number with]) the little ones in their kindergarten song and dance. Nunber seven and Master Lee's captivating interpretation of “Bob White's” love-making reaped a double rec all, and the exquisite* harmony of the ladies' quartette gave tin* audience a splendid excuse for insisting upon hearing it again. Miss Allie s charming recitation fully deserved the honors awarded her. and she responded with “Peggy and the Low-Backed Car,” thus giving the same two selections presented by Miss Edith Pond on the occasion of Mrs. Shaw'- visit. In part second. Master James* character song was so well given that In* was invited to duplicate; it and he did. Th*- male quartette singing was among the finest exhibitions of vocal culture ever heard in the Grand and was thoroughly appreciated- Number five won the youngsters another “called back” and after they had good-naturedly humored the request, Mr. J. B. McGibeny came out and expressed his thanks to those present, when the closing numbed brought the family on the stage in orchestral array with Master Leo at the bat and the big drum his sphere. Amid such a diversity of talent in one domestic circle, it is rather delicate work to particularize. But we must in justice say that the violin work of Mr. Hugh, the cornet playing of Mrs. I'rank McGibney and the trombone solo of Mr. Fred were exceptionally fine—but also. was the entire performance. The McGibneys are all that is claimed for them and while not pretending to stellar eminence in the musical firmament, their first grade talent and well arranged program affords a much more enjoyable evening than many of the more august “artists” are capable of giving.
