Several weeks ago a man named Ed.Larson was taken to 8t. Luke's hospital, sick. He was a laborer and when taken to the hospital had been much weakened by an attack of chlils and fever. He remained there about five weeks, being very clck during a part of the time. At last he recovered sufficiently to warrant his discharge, and was accordingly allowed to leave the hospital about a week ago. Since ;ben he had been unable to <lo auy work and wandered about the city. The cold days of the latter part of last week broneht on the chills ftealn. Saturday night at 9 o'clock he went liito the waiting room of the union depot and there he remained until about the same time Sunday night. Little attention was paid to him by the people who came and went, but at last he attracted somebody to Inquire and hip condition was learned. Ue was taken to the Pullman House where he is now lying quite 111 again. He will probably be taken back to the hospi- tal. He has been laboring on railroads and says he has no home. THE BEGGAR STUDENT. The Baker-Deshon Company Cloaca a Week's Engagement in Cedar Rapids With this favorite Success- ful Engagement. The Baker-Dcshon Opera company closed a very successful engngement here on Satur- day evening In "The Beggar Student." At the matinee in the afternoon they put on "Chimes of and bad a very fair audience despite the In the evctili.g the house was well filled for the company had made numerous friends dur- ing its stay, and many were present to see them In their closing piece. The opera Is not as well fitted to the personnel of the company as some of the otherV that have been put on here. Frank Deshoo as Entrlch the Jailor does not have the opportunities given In most ol the plnys to entertain the audience with his Inimitable drollery at best the part has to be given undue Importance when assigned to the star performer, and the appearance of padding is noted in places. In general however, the parts were very well taken, and the excellent muplc, Including both solo and chorus parts, was well rendered. The lover scene In the last ant was a very pretty thing, and the paits were well taken by Mr. Drew and MtssMarcellus. The week's engagement of the company here hits been a satisfactory one to all con- cerned, the company, the opera house mana- gement and the public. The company will be welcomed to Cedar Rapids whenever they may come this way again. HUNDREDS OF YARDS OF Black Goods received the past week at G. K.

There are few people who have read of the early days of California, when the gold fever wis at itshelght, who do not recall the thrill- ing accounts of the doings of the famous 36 regulators, who did so much to redeem the city of San Francleco from the lawless! and vice Into which It bad been plungeu through the misrule of the gang of miscreants who secured control of the city government, and were only ousted alter an organized and bloody warfare on them by the law abiding element of the city. There are still fewer of Cedar Rapids people who know that there Is In this city a man who took a prominent part in the doings of those early days ani was a member of the Immortal band of 36 who took their lives In their bands In their efforts to re- deem the city from the corruption that for two or three years ruled with a high band. H. Taylor, who runs a second hand store on Second street, 10 one of the few survivors of that group of orave men, nearly all of whom have long since passed to their last ac- count. those who are still alive could be numbered on the digits of one hand. Mr. Taylor, now a man of over 60 years, was the youngest of them. he said when asked to relate some of his recollections of the early days, "I was pretty much Interested In all that was done In the course of the effort to clear the city of the mob of toughs that took pos- session almost from the day that the boom began. I was one of the 36 you've heard of them, I suppose. We had to hang a number of the worst cases, and they were banished from the country by the score before they gave up and allowed the decent element to rule. "I went to California In the spring of '50, when the great emigration In that direction began. I went with a party that crossed the IntbtnuB of Panama. We had an eventful too. It took us 85 days to make the trip, and two were spent crossing the Isth- mus. We went up the Chagres river, the one that has given the builders of the Panama canal so much trouble, In canoes, and were carried across the mountains by natives or on came at the same price. It cost for the trip and you had your choice be- tween the back of an Indian and that of a mule. Most of us preferred mules. The steamer we started In bad bad luck. At one tlino the piston rod broke and punched a hole through the aide of the hull, below the water line. We had to pump for dear life to keep the old hulk above water. The main mast was cut down and one end of It wrapped around with all the spare clothing and Deddlng on board, to make a plug with which to stop the hole. This was drlvea Into the hole, which was corked up as well as possible, but we came near starving to death before the voyage was over. The vessel put into DO less than three places and bills of sale against her wire given to get provisions to keep us alive. "But we arrived In San Francisco at last. We found It a blg.overgrown frontier village, full of life an activity, with lots of money In circulation, nearly everybody getting rlch.and all branches of business booming. And of course there was a large number who would not work honestly, but who preferred gam- bling and robbery and swindling. At the time I arrived there this element was In pow- sr. They held the reins of the city govern- ment, and by corruption at elections man- aged to keep their deadly grip on the city. "It was not until the spring of '52, as I recollect, that the war of extermination be- gan. The lawless element grew more Impu- dent every law was disregarded; crime. If It were committed by members or supporters of the party In power, was winked at, and justice could not be. obtained Criminals guilty of murder were arrested and Jailed un- til the wrath of the populace had subsided, and they were turned loose after a farce of a trial, or none at all. No man's life or money waa safe, even In broad daylight and on the public streets. Why, a man come Into the corridor of the leading hotel In the city, draw a revolver and look about In search of a victim. When he found the one be had been looking for he opened fire and drove him about the room, shooting at him as rapidly as he could handle his wespon. Finally a ball struck the mark and the man was killed. Everybody In the room lo ked on In mortal terror and none dare raise a hand. The murderer went out and never an- swered for the erlme. "At another time a desperado came Into a hotel cfflce with blood in his eye. He was In search of a man whom he belli-ved to have been on too Intimate terms with his wife. Turning suddenly, he placed bis gun against the head of a man who stood near him and Bred. The man dodged as the trigger was pulled, and the bullet parsed through his bat acd lodged In the wall. The desperado looked at him, put up bis and said, "I beg pardon It was my mistake. I took you for another man.1' Then he turned and went out. Rather a dangerous mistake, but he was never called to account for it. "At last a particularly outrageous case aroused the law abiding people, and led to a bitter war. One night at the theatre, when all the faeblon and wealth of the city was In was placed In position and-heavily loaded. Then the force was drawn up In position for an attack. Col. Doane announced to the defending party that they would be give Just five minutes to deliver op the pris- oner. Then he turned to his men. drew bis watch from his pocket and shouted to bis force to load their pieces. In a minute the hundreds of guns were ready for execution. Exery man stood firmly In his place, and determination was stamped on every face. 'Make shouted the colonel, and every piece was brought to position. Then ne had the cannon trained carefully on the door of the jail and turned to hla men again, 'We have two minutes be said; 'when time Is up I will count one, two, three. At the last word fire the cannon -and reload and Ore as rapidly as poaslble. At the third discharge of the cannon the Infantry will commence fir- "When be ceased speaking the silence was intense. All stood ready for action. Again the colonel looked at his watch. 'One min- ute he shouted. The seconds seemed like hours. The gunners were preparing the fuse for the cannon, when a commotion was heard Inside the jail. The bolts were thrown back and the prisoner led out, not an Instant toosoon. Another quarter of a minute and the cannon would have been fired and bloody battle begun. "The enemy saw that we were in earnest, and had the force to carry the day, so they gave up the prisoner. We took him to a guard house and' he was guarded by a large force day a..d night. A trial was held at once which occupied several days. Judges were selected and counsel fur- nished both sides, the prisoner being given the very best of legal advisors. The commit- tee of fifty constituted the jury. It was agreed that everyone must vote to convict be- fore be should be hanged. The trial was made perfectly fair and jnst and It ended in a sentence to hang. "After this conviction we sought out and tried several notorious criminals and three more were sentenced to bsng. The four were in one day. The method was primitive and needlessly cruel. The convicted men were stood under a tree, rope tied around the neck of each and thrown over a llinb, and at the word they were pulled up Into the air aud held there until they strangled to death. It was an aw f ul sight to see their struggles and contortions for several minutes before they died. "After this we went to work to secure control of the city government. Before the neit elec- tion we took possession of the ballot boxes and found that they all had false and that they were already stuffe.l wllh tick- ets bearing the names of the ring candidates, who would have been elected by the fraud .d we not prevented It. Several of the leaders In this and other plots were captured, and another quartette of beauties were hanged. This time we bull' a gallows, and they had their necks broken by a fall of several feet. "In all these doings the committee of fifty directed us, and they were In session as a court every day. Many criminals were ban- ished. These went to New York, and there formed a league to avenge themselves. When- ever a man who had been prominent In our movement should go to New York on busi- ness or otherwise, for years after, they would capture him If possible, and wreak their venj CAPTAIN BELL. ijeancc on him. Several gentlemen were thus bandied In New York on this account. But on the whole the war, as we called It, was Just what was needed. It left the better party In control, and the toughs never again ruled tho city." THE TEMPERANCE WORK. the house, a woman named Belle Cora, noted as the vilest and wickedest of all the de- praved women of the city, occupied one of the most prominent seats In the bouse. She was a beautiful woman In spite of her vices, and was accompanied by one of her most de- voted paramours, a man prominent In the gang that controlled the city government. She wore full evening dress, and as the pair took their seats all eyes were turned on them. In the scats next to them was a gentleman named Rlc. ardson, a United States officer, and one of the most respected men lu the city, with his wife. Annoyed at the notori- ety given their part of the house, they arose and left. The woman whose presence Influenced them to go, noticed It of course affected to be highly Itsulted. She convinced the dupe at her side that the Insult was a mor'al one, and that only the life of Richard- son would right It. The uexl day he met Richardson on the street, and without a word first avenue and Third Street. of warning drew a revolver and shot, killing him Instantly. "The criminal was arrested and confined, but no stops were taken to punish him and everybody knew that he would be se: free. Thlr, was too much for the better class of people.The murdered man bad been one of the most respected men In the city, and had hun- dreds of friends who declared that hl.< murder must be avenged. Tbe result was the organization of the committee of tbe vigilance association. The committee of fifty was selected from the moit prominent and courteous men of the city. It Included busi- ness and professional men, leading miners, and tbe best men who were to be found.They bad control of the movement to purify the city. The vigilance association numbered thousands of members. Any man who was known to be In sympathy with the cause could become a member. They a reg ularly established recret society, with a close bond of membership, and a ceremony of Initiation which Included the taking of oaths of fidelity to the cause. I was only a young man, but soon became a member. Three- fourths of the men In the city were either members or In sympathy with the organization. At Its head was Colonel Doane, a leading citizen and gallant officer wbo bad seen service In tbe Mexican war. He went to work at once to organize his forces thoroughly. "They were drilled In large rooms In squads, and Instructed lo all that a soldier has to learn. All tbe members of the vigilance as- sociation carried arms, and there was a gener- al determination to make an Issue of the Richardson murder and bring the matter to a final settlement at once. "The other party learned that we were preparing for war, and while we were drilling secretly they bad their forces out near the city, drilling dally. At length when Colonel Doane was satisfied wltb his force, a commit- tee of the special police force of 38, known u tbe 36 regulators, of whom I waa one, was sent to the jail to demand that the. murderer be turned over to them. The 'demand waa refused. The committee returned to Col. Doane with his force of .everal hundred, all ready for battle, was watting. The band at once marched In military order to the jail, which they "found locked securely and guard- ed.

The temperance meeting in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. building was well attend- ed despite unfavorable weather.

Some excellent music was furnUhed, led by an orchestra, and the aunlcnce. joined with a wjll In the pieces. After the Introductory exercises. Rev. J. K. Fowler was Introduced and delivered a strong and earnest address of 45 minutes in length. He took as his theme the sign which he had seen over the door of a saloon In a western city not long Mechanics'Kxcbsnge." Bespoke of the nature of the exchange there affected If no higher tenhc rebels the pocket at leant shoLld enter a protest, for the so-called exchange Is all In favor of the dram seller. In the United States, according to the cen- sus figures, there are men engaged In keeping saloons, or who are directly con- nected with them and make their living from them. Granting that three persons arc de- pendent on each of them for a livelihood anil It gives grand total of of people who are supported through dram drinking. They contribute nothing to the welfare of the rest, they are simply supported by contributions from all wbo patronize their bar. They grow rich while we grow poor. Are we willing to allow this? Of every paid for drink, Is direct profit to the saloon keeper. The laborer eats his bread In the sweat of his brow, and his contribution to the ssloon keeper's wealth enables the other to eat better bread, and more of It, In a cool andcomforta- ble brow. To Industry, good habits, honMty and fru- gality will come soon or late opportunities for the Improvement of worldly conditions. Openings for Investments of savings In busi- ness or property will present themselves. Then It Is that the young man who has pat- ronized the saloon, realizes his mistake. His savings he has not, only the haunting recol- lection of Indulgence and debauchery. The saloon might well be named and the name rrlttcn on a sign over the door of evnry one, 'Bank ot Losings." For It Is the bank of loMngs to which so many can trace the com- mencement of a downward course. It means loss, not only of money but of time, and of health. Insurance statlitlcs show that where 73 men die who are total ab- stainers 100 of those wbo may be classed as moderate drinkers pay the last penalty. In this bank of losing a man loses his friends, their confidence in him, his own self, respiet, and his confidence In himself. Con- tinual deposits will bring dividends of pover ty, degradation, delirium tremens, and free tickets to a drunkard's grave. In closing Dr. Fowler made an eloquent plea for signatures to the pledge, and after be closed, while several pieces of music were sung, the pledges were passed through the audience and a nnraber of signatures obtain- ed. Testimony was heard from several who have but recently signed, and they were all glad of the step they had tsken. With an announcement of the meeting for next Sun- day audience was then dismissed.

The Political Economist and Free Trader Interviewed -The HcKinlry Bill and the Discussion of the Tariff did the Business Election are Thinking and Tbe country Is now Inquiring for the cause which led to the surprising results of last Tuesday's election, and the opinions of those who have played prominent parts In the dis- cussion of economic and political question In recent years are of the deepest Interest to the people. Among Iowa men who have occupied the most advanced grounds on the side of the late winners', stands Geo. Gear, W. Bell, now a resident of South Bend, Washington. Capt. Bell Is the author of several works on econo- mic questions and was employed by the democratic national committee In 1888, for campaign work In Maine, New York, Indiana and Iowa, and during that campaign deliver- ed spe-ches as follows: Iowa 60, Indiana 36, Maine 12, New York 3 aud Illi- nois 2. As the Captain Is more of a pjlitl- economlst than a politician, bis opinions, it would seem, should be entitled tp, greater wclgb: than those of men more enthusiastic over party victory, and aa the noted gentle- man spent Saturday In this city on his way to hla western home, a GAZETTE reporter took the opportunity to learn his view on'the situ- ation. Capt. Bell Is an iflnble gentleman, of pleasant address, and he and the reporter were soon engaged In a social discussion of things In general. The Captain had many good words for his new home as well as for his old, the great state of Iowa. When the reporter asked for his opinion or the views n the late campaign and Its results he reluct- antly yielded to an expression. said the reporter, "you of course are rejoicing over the victory of your party." "I care little for party replied the Cnptaln, "but I am rejoiced beyond expres- sion that the people have been Intellectually equal to the emergency." "How Is that 1'' I a quired the reporter. "The ctmpalgn was an educational said Mr. Bell. "It opened whea Mr. Cleve- land's 'free trade' message was delivered to congress and has not ended yet. Last Tues- day's vote was but an expression Indicating the progress of the discussion. I speak not as a democrat but as a political economist when I say that I am Inclined to think Mr. Blalne was more than half right when he said In his Dayton speech that the contest was 'not one between the democratic and the republican parties, but between free trade and protection.' "In their earnest Inquiries the people have discussed tariff and taxes and have reasoned on the true functions of govern- ment and the duties of the law making porver. The people have beheld with amazement the great manufacturers howling for protection for the farmer and the laboring man, though agriculture was declin- ing and labor striking against starvation wages, while those who furnish the boodle and the tears of pity were growing enormous- ly rich and oppressively Insolent. Yes, sir, I regard tho discussion of the tariff question, with the great object lessons prelected by the McKlnley bill, as the chief cause of tbe revolution. The Inconsistencies of the protec- tionists in this bill were as grotesque aa they H A f Yon have not LUDY TAYLOR'S -AT PRICES- ill to h k Of goods. This reputation we have gained and we will honora- bly maintain it. were absurd and forced themselves upon the attention of thinking men. To awear In one breath that a high tariff does not Increase prices and lu the next that a reduction of duties on sugar saved to the con- sumers of sugar Is an Insult to common sense, and then to put only aucb as Is used by the refiners on tbe free list was a taunt that called for re- buke Then in tho tin plate tax too, to de- clare that the one cent per pound tax was paid by tbe consumer while to double the tax was to shift it to the shoulders of the Import- ers was another rent In the tattered garb of protective hypocrisy. It was madness. The people had submitted so loyally to cxcesflve taxation that the last congress feared no revolt. "The discussion of the tariff question, with the shocking results of the McKlnley bill as a climax did the business last Tuesday, and has opened the new campaign which will end In tlic entire abolition of protective duties." "What of the Influence of Mr. Reed's rul- Incs and the Lodge queried the reporter, "I think they had very little influence In the campaign. As a rule men not politically opposed admire tbe displayed by Mr. Reed, and as the people fear no oppression they cannot feel they gave this little attention." "What do you think of Mr. Blalnc's scheme of reciprocity 1" "An excellent thing If aimed In the rlcbt direction. Wltb the Latin republics It -only means to open an outlet to our manufacturers and a stronger competition to the American farmer. The scheme was so plainly the prop of protection that It was unnecessary foi Mr. Blalne to declare It so.
