   LeMars Sentinel (Newspaper) - December 2, 1890, Lemars, Iowa                                HAGBDALB & naASSBLL. I-nbs. LKMARS,      � -     IOWA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2. 1800, STUUBLE FOB JUDQE. With the expnnslon of tho interests nud growth ot the population of the notion Htigiitlon has also increased. The admission ot new states and the multiplication of lower courts with accumulating busi ness has Imposed a vast amount of worit upon the supreme court of the United States. Tlie accunimulatiou of cases now on file for hearing is so great that litigants can not expect decisions in less than three to four years after appeals are taken. This evil of the law's delay is increasing every year with tlie development of the nation. These delays work an injustice to litigants, more frequently to the weaker Iiarty to the controversy. The necessity for relief has been recognized for years. It needs no further comment. A bill is likely soon to become a law making, such provisions as to relieve the supreme court'of a part of Its burdens, and tluis enable it to dispose of cases with greater dispatch. The bill now under consideration has passed both houses of congress, being amended in the senate, and is now in the committee of conference witli probability of agreement during tho present session. By its provisions, it will become the duty of the president to appoint several additional circuit judges. It is probable that these appointments will be made in the line of promotion from the bench ot the United States district court. The long service, eminent ability, and general popularity of Judge O. P. Shiras of the Northern District of Iowa render him available and prominent in the line of promotion. In the event of tho promotion of Judge Shiras, Hon. I. S. Struble, of LeJIars, the present representative of the Eleventh district in congress is a candidate for the vacancy thus to be created. Mr. Struble has tlie moral and intellectual qualities of an able and upright judge. He is a close student and a man of strong intellectual capacity. He is an able lawyer and has been actively in the practice of his i)ro-fession for twenty years, excepting the time which his congressional duties have received. His ample legal knowledge and e.vperience combined with his broad general culture and knowledge of affairs and government render him a specially fit man for the place. His invincible determination, close applicaton, ability and candor have won for him the higii esteem of friends and command the respect of opponents. Hitherto the judges of the U. S. district court have come from the eastern part of the state. Judge Shiras is from the extreme eastern part of the district and if promoted, will still be a representative of tliat section. Under these circumstances there is a general feeling that the successor to Judge Shiras should come from the AVest. With this in view the bar have canvassed the question as to who would be the strongest and most satisfactory candidate and without regard to party, have generally agreed upon Mr. Struble as their choice. There is a full description of tho Democratic campaign in tlie : sentence, "By pointing out to the granger tho half cent advance in the price of the tin dipper and charging it to McKinioy, saying nothing of the hundred per cent, advance in the price of grain or his acre of land." The Telegraph attributes the good times before election to the silver and pension laws, but ns Democracy fought both and attacked the Republican party during the campaign for enacting them, t)ie Telegraph compliments to them cut no figure. ItdHTHWiSTEHH HEWS. CONFESSES THE TEEFT. The Dubuque Telegraph, an able edited Democratic contemporary, takes pleasure in telling how Democracy "came it" over the voters of the countrj'. After discussing at length the various valuable laws enacted by the Republican congress and referring to the good which would necessarily arise from them, the Telegraph thus refers to the condition of the county before the election: Times therefore are looking up. Prices have advanced. The country bids fair to be saved. But what about this Republican party? The rest is soon told. The common Democrats stole their thunder by pointing out to the granger the half cent advance in the tin dipper and charged it to McKinlej', saying nothing of the him dred per cent, advances in the price of his grain or his acre of land. The philosopher of the Telegraph hits off the situation very -well. He is cheering and jeering, however, with the shadows ot the forest still falling over the Democracy. Before they get out of the woods they will find that the granger they refer to has been studying the marltets for results. It does not take very long, for the half cent has never been added to the price of his tin cup and then, on the contrary, the effect of the Democratic victory has been to reduce the value of the products of tills year's crop on an eighty acre farm more than the entire cost of all the tinware he would buy in ten years. Before another election, it will be permanently demonstrated that the tariff is a benefit to the country and Democracy will be voted again. Election is now a thingof the past and our Dubuque contemporary is Interested in stating facts as a newspaper rather than in prevaricating as   a   Democrat   against   the    tariff. RECOLLECTIONS  OF   THE  TYPES. The Taylor county Republican under tho management of VV. R. Cochrane is prospering. It is a practical spicy paper, that fits the times and the locality. Like the greatest orators, It says tlie rigiit tiling at the right time. Tho Republican has just come out with a new dress of type. In bidding good bye to the old type, the editor drops into a reverie as he thinks of what has been the work of tlio little leaden instruments that are now worn out and laid aside. This is what he thinks: "How many scenes of pleasure and of pain had been faithfully preserved for future reference? How much of politics, of religion, of philosophy, of humor, of condolence, of prophesy, of history had been stamped upon the pure white paper to be scattered out before our readers. How many theories had been by them spread out before the world that they might be judged. How many wedding bells and funeral notes had been sounded through them I How many an anxious office seeker had scanned their faces to catch a liod or a wink tliat would give him hope or warning! How many zealous partisans had seen a thought on politics by them set out that made him call and stop his paper, while liis neighbor saw in the same a reason for calling and saying a word of encouragement to the editorl How many citizens of the county were attracted hither by the glowing account of our climate, or soil, and our grand prospects as set forth by them! How many anxious parents have read the welcome news of the success of a sou or dauglither in our community! How many men and women have been llattered by seeing their names as photograped by lliese guileless little things!" Several Iowa papers favor John H. Gear tor governor. Col, Henderson has also received numerous endorsements, to be applied if the Democratic congress ousts him from his seat. Our own Hiram C. Wheeler has received well merited endorsements, and now the Oedar Rapids Republican wants to know "What is the matter with Farmer Poyneer?" The Republican sensibly says in substance that it is not in the business of starting booms at this season of tlio year. All very good brethren, they are good men all of them, but lets refrain from picking gubernatorial bouquets until after the cold weather moderates. Full many a promising rose-budhos been blasted by premature picking. Those who have business with the office of secretary of state will bo glad to know that IMr. C. S. Byrkit, the present efficient deputy, will be retained by Secretary of State McFarland. This will suit a large number of friends of Mr. Byrkit, who wanted to see him nominated last summer. Mr. Byrkit is a systematic worker, he was appointed by Secretaiy Jackson from the machine shop to his present position. The habits of accuracy so necessary in a successful machinist have made him one of the most efficient officials at the capitol. In appointing Byrkit to continue in office Mr. McFarland has made a wise selection. The Independent Congressional Committee for the Eleventh congressional district advertises in the Liberty Bell for a contribution of 400 to make up the committee deficiencies, Expenses were about $8C0, receipts less than |400. Remittances will be received by B. F. Roe at Sioux City. The new committee, that managed Mr. "Wostfall's campaign, is not the first one in the world of politics to find itself in the hole financially at the close of the campaign. The deputy postmistress, of Sibley, drew a sjiSO suite of furniture at the close of a dramatic entertainment last week. It the local newspaper had advertised the prize drawing it would have been the painful duty of the postmistress to exclude the papers from the mail for cciii-taining a lottery advertisement. The Union Pacific under Jay Gould's thumb, had no further use for Charles Francis Adams, and President Adams did not wish to occupy his position longer without the confidence of a majority of the stockholders. Sidney Dillon is his successor as president of the first great inter oceanic railway. The Ashton Leader is a new Republican paper started by C. A. Charles. It succeeds the Argus, recently deceased. Mr. Charles makes a good start with his first issue, both as to a advertising patronage and editorial and news showing. Twenty-five horses were burned last week in a barn belonging to Mrs. Chris. Rermenschaeider, in Marshall county. Cherokee .proposes to erect a $10,000 Y.M,O.A, building'. Orange City votes today on the question of bonding the town for water works. Webster City Is well pleased with the operation of its new electric light plant. Three boys were killed by the caving in of 0 deserted sand pit at Atlantic, last Friday, Tho Ashton, Osceola county, creamery wussold atsiierlU's sale Nov. 20, It had been built but a short time and cost about $P,0CO. H. Doeden, a farmer living in Wilson tiwuship, Osceola county, fell dead last week, while plowing in his field. He was subject to fits. Matthew Corzelius suicided in Rock township, Cherokee county, recently, by throwing himself mto a well. lie was single, aged forty, lived with his brother; supposed to have been temporarily insane. Jim Miller says he never thought that George Williams was,guilty of the charge of arson, but he regrets that he was not convicted because, "with his flowing looks and graceful form" he would look so picturesque in a striped suit. Smithland Exponent: Stark McCall cut down a cottonwood tree in his front yard a few days ago 8^ feet in diameter, and mude ten cords of stovewood. This is quite an Interesting item from the fact that it was set out only 83 years ago and in that comparatively short time had grown to a lofty tree. Another example of what Iowa can do. Hon. J. Jj Bruce, of Rolfe, is making it funny for Pocahontas saloon keepers. Says a correspondent: � "On September 26 the hoodlums of Fonda hanged Mr. Bruce in eIHgy, with a beer bottle at his feet, which he thinks was exceedingly appropriate, and now fulfills the propliecy l>y continuing to keep the beer business at his feet In Pocahontas count}'. Storm Lake Vldotte: C. A. Patterson and Mr. Ilansenwlnkle are making arrangements to cut and put up ice here for five years. They have made a contract with the railroad to lay a track to the ice houses on the shoie of the lake, and last night received consent from the council to cross the street going eost. These gentlemen propose, not only to fill one or two more houses, but to ship east through the ice seasou. Cherokee Cherokean: A collision between two gravel trains on the Illinois Central occurred about four miles from Dubuque Nov. 24. One man, Ed. Russell, was fatally injured, and Franli Metcalf had his foot taken off. Conductor C. H. Wood �]d engineer James Campbell were running one train and Conductor Frank O'Conner and Engineer Gilliam the other. The company places tlie rosposibillty for the accident with the two conductors and engineers, who should have flagged aheod. A Canadian exchange says: "Over twelve hundred fathers with families of twelve or more children have applied for the land offered by the province ot Quebec for that condition of parentage." The Canadian government gives a hundred acre farm to every father of twelve or more living children who applies for It, A heartless real estate man suggests that Sioux City might help out her census returns by opening two or three townships inside the city limits for settlement under the same conditions. Here is a chance for two men to gain experience in a short time a telegraph special says: "Nov. 38,-The Sheldon Eagle was sold to a stock company, with Messrs. Knight and Whiting in charge. Mr. Knight is the liookkeeper for the Empire Loan and Investment company, and Mr. Whiting is a photographer. Neither gentlemen have ever had any experience in the newspaper business. It is understood that J. C. Jones, tho former proprietor, will go to Sioux City and enter the employ of the Tribune Printing company. Storm Lake is liable to boom. A local syndicate has purchased $100,000 worth of real estate of the Iowa Falls and Sioux City Town Lot and Land Co. The purchase comprises 136 lots and 438 acres of land adjoining the cit}'. Local men can now control the development of the city. The gentlemen who have thus far taken stock are Messrs. John R. Lemon, Edgar E. Mack, Zeph. Chas. Felt, Geo. 11. Eastman, Phil. Schaller, E. (J. Cowles, J. H. Dicljey, S. J. Powell, W, C. Kinne, A. M. Hutchinson, J. P. Morey, Louis Henne, George AVitter, Fred Schaller, F. A. Brown, Geo. W. Brown, Bailie & Sisson, S. W. Hobbs. Sioux City has a mantrap in the form of a railway crossing. The view of the crossing is olstructed by the deep cut and also by the depot of the motor line. The crossing Is at the foot ot a hill. A man was nearly killed there a'few months ago, and Friday moruini!; a woman was instantly killed. Jas. S, Lapsle)% driving aspirited team, nearly reached tho track before seeing an approaching freight train. He was unable to stop and tried to cross. The buggy, containing three women besides himself, was struck and carried some distance. Miss E. J. Lapsley was thrown about fi fty feet and died In five minutes. '1 he others were badly shaken up. The Journal .says: "It does not appear that the train was going at an unusual speed, but the place is a naturally dangerous one and the accident was such a oiie as maybe expected there almost any time. A Special to tlie Journal, Cherokee Nov. 28: A frightful accident occurred near the stock yards here this morning between G and 7 o'chick. Robert Leeds and Jerry Hitchcock had a car of cattle on the siding that they desired to unload at the stock yards. While the yard-men were doing the necessary switching they concluded to ride on the front end of the engine, it having no cowcatcher on, but In lieu thereof a footboard to stand on and was apparentli* a safe place. The two men were"standing on ihis facing the engine when a couple of loaded cars that had been pushed up the track a short distance a few moments before rolled down on them, crushing them between the end of the car and the engine. Mr. Hitchcock had one leg broken and crushed in two places, his body bodly injured and one finger was torn off, the ten- dota of which waflfllllli^d out^fHheWiii-near; the elbow. He cStfndt rocover. Mr. Leeds was injuredbaSly in the thigh and body and it is barely possLble^that he may recoTBr,' provided (he'iS not "Idjuired' too bad internally. Mr>,'Hltcta(idbk Is about fifty five years old and haa a large family, all grown, Mr. Leeds is probably fifty years of age, has afamlly andls one of our most wealthy farmers, and the son-in-law ot Mr. Hitchcock,^ Mr; Hitchcock lives In this town and' MntLeeds on his �farm. i' iiheldon Mail:- A party of thirteen "boomers" from Des Moines arrived here Sunday morning and immediately hired livery teams and scoured the country north and west of town looking for vacant government land on which they could make their filings in the district land oiUcei They came here with the idea that this was a wild and unimproved country in the extreme-nothing but grass and wild animals^-and were visibly disappointeg when they'found that there was no such land as they sought in the county. They had probably received tlieir mistaken impressions from a garbled report of the late de: clsion In the United States circuit coui-t at Sioux, City, and thought the decision would open up a large, amount of government land for settlement. As S matter Of fact each piece of land In the county claimed by the "Sioux City Company" Is already occupied, either by a purchaser from the company, or by a "squatter." Emin Fasha and the   BebelUon at the Ec[uator. The above is the title of anew, book just issued in London and: New York, complete in one volume, that;-wiii le read witli great interest throughbui tlio civilized world. Lieutenont MohtSnej'-^ophson, the author,! was one of Mr. Stanley's officers in the Emin Pasha relief expedition, and when Mr. Stanley found it necessary to return tlirough the Great Forest for the missing and ill-fated rear column of the expedition, he sent Lieutenant Jephson with twenty men to carry to Emin Pasha's followers and troops in Equatoria, at the stations wiiich he hdd established in the province, the,message of relief, and to explain Stanley's mission of rescue. He was there wlien the Rebellion' broke out and both he and the Governor were made prisoners while anarchy reigned in the Province. Mr. Jephson's narrative ot exciting incidents Is as thrilling as his description of the character ot the people and soldiers is interesting. His book is so graphic and detailed a picture of the Province, of the native tribes, and of the Egyptian Soldiery that held it against the Mahdi's forces, that Its pages throw a flood of light upon the real nature of the problem which Sir Samuel Baker, Gordon; and lastly, Emin have tried to solve. He weaves Into his narratives much Interesting information about the birds and wild animals, the surface and resources of the country, habits and customa of the natives, modes of warfare, etc. No more interesting book on Atrioun exploration and adventure has ever been written. 3fr. Stanley says of it: "There la within tlie covers ot your volume much matter that is quite new to me, much that is extremely new to me, much that,is extremely thrilling and exciting, and the whole Is related with very enviable literary tact and skill." The book Is sold only by subscription, and persons desiring to secure agencies will find the publishers announcement in another column. The New 'Webster. Webster's International Dictionary is the book which is destined to go into every library, every public school, every household where American literature is received and where the English language Is studied. The publisliers have spent more than a quarter of a million dollars in bringing this work out in Its unabridged, levised, enlarged and authentic form. It now takes the name "International," and this is intended to emphasize the fact that thelan-guage of the- mother country now encircles the globe. Every page has been treated as if the book were now published for the first time. The claim of the publishers is that it retains that excellence in definition which has made Webster the safe and familiar authority to which judges, journalist, scholar, artisan and man of business refer, and that in etymology, pro-n-inclntion, citations and pictorical illustrations it carries to greater perfection the merits of Us predecessors. We believe that it abundantly justifies these modest claims, and that, as a comprehensive popular dictionary. It Is likely to retain the pre-eminence which has long been held by "Webster's Unabridge." No dictionary can be final, but tor the next 25 years the "International Dictionary" must be accepted as the best work ot its kind in the English liinguage.-Boston Herald, September 28.1800.

G-and bis peerlesS' daughter. ''loan drink with pleasure to the gallant general; but not to the lady," was the response. *'Why notP! demanded the spokesman of the knights. "Because I regard it as im insult." A slap in tho face from the wrathful-knight and a knock down from the Englishman followed. Further violence was arrested by the bystanders.i That night our immortal received a challenge to mortal combat. "It is ratheii absurd, you know," said Charles Augustus to the friend ho had ' selected! "but I suppose it is the custom of this bloody country, so make it swords. The general has a nice assortment presented him; and at daylight tomorrow morning; yon know." Tlio assembled crowd admitted to the confidence of the affair were upon thjB ground in the oarly dawn, and the two contestants facing each other were about to cross swords when Gen. G-- appeared, accompanied by his fair daughter.   , "Gentlemen," ho said, quietly, but coldly, "I will thank you to give me those swords. They arO evidence of duty on the field in behalf of.a holy cause. loan-not permit their being stained in- a quan-el of this sort. Had I Itnown last night the purpose for which they'were borrowed they would not have passed from my possession." , The weapons wero given him and he then added: "Gentlemen, I appreciate the kind feeling you have shovni for me and my family. Twish to test it yet further. Mr. Spray interfered last night as the betrothed of my daughter. Not Iniowing you as -well as we do, nor the customs of our country, he mistook a compliment for an insult. Iknow that he wll withdi-aw his offensive lan-guaffe and you will apologize for your violence. I have issued many orders you have gallantly obeyed;' this is a request. Come, lot us all be friends." The request was heartily complied with. The two purposed contestants shook hands, and that night, at a dinner given by the general to all parties, tho knights not only drank to their old leader and his daughter but to the gallant stranger who had won the right to tho immediate guardianship of their fair lady. The immortal provlein was solved. DoNN Piatt. llndiicine; Ilia iramil',r lo .Suit. A certain man, not unknown in this city, tells this story about himself: He went to look at rooms, and after a chat wth the landlady, in which he told hei he thought, ho woiUd take them, ho asked her if she objected to cliildren. She said no, not partioiilarly, and wanted to know how many be had. "Oh, about seven," he replied in an offhand way. "What!" she cried, "Goodness gracious, I couldn't let those in." "Well," lie said reflectively, "I'll go home and kill four of them, i like the rooms very much." The lady -ivas horrified iiid begged him not to do it, until finally he consented and gave up his hope of over li-siiig in her pleasant rooms. -Providence Tekgrain. -5- Wanted Soino Storo Tcotli. The other day a waman not over 80, but minus her teeth, called on a prominent dentist, and asked him if he covdd not rent her a set of teeth tb wear to a p.arty that evening.

Lands in Southern Illinois for sale by the Illinois Central Railroad Company are offered at so low a price that It seems absurd to tell what they are capoble of producing, yet it is a fact the crop from apple orchards are yielding from |300 to $500 per acre.  There are many farmers, fruit frowers, who are realizlrig each year from 160 to $500 per acre for their fruit and early vegetables, and some who are realizing $1,000 per acre. These of cimrse are successful men of business, who study how to do it. Do you want the same chance of making money? You'can have it by going into this country and buying some ot the same lands from the Illinois Central Railroad Company, and by applying the ability you have in a business manner to their improvement and cultivation, you can have in a short time as valuable land as that of a succe.ssful fruit grower, on the line of this railroad, who said the other day, "I have brought my land to such a high state of cultivation that no one can buy it from me for $500 per acre, as I can net $100 per acre off it each year." Most of the lauds offered for sale by the Illinois Central Railroad Company can be made to produce tho same results. They lie along the line of this railroad at a dis-' tance of from 3 to 15 miles, and the coun--try is traversed by many other railroads,, thus affording every facility for trausporr; ttttion of early Iruits and vegetables to any, market that may be selected, fruit express trains being run dailyto Chicago, St. Louis and other points on as fust timeiasthe reg-^v ular passeugar trains.
