Emmett and Palo Alto Counties Added to the District, A complete report of the first sessions of the convention was given in the last issue of the Sentinel. In the Friday's session the report of the different societies showed a membership [^reaching nearly 1,000, and that the outlook for increase was very hopeful as all societies were in a flourisliing condition. Emmett and Palo Alto counties were, by resolution added to the Sioux district in addition to the counties embraced in tills congressional district. This was followed by an excellent address by the president. Rev. D. W. Fahs. Tlie address of Mrs. E, H. Slocum was timely and forcible. It touched upon the pledge of the order particularly. The reports of the various committees wore then read , in order as previously announced and met with general enthusiastic approbation. In the afternoon, Mr. Gilbert read a paper from the missionary committee, in the absence of Mr. Truesdell. Tlie Junior Department received special attention from Miss Helen Gilbert in a paper on the subject. She reported particularly of the excellent results of the junior society of the First Congregational church, of Sioux City. It now has forty members. Its success in developing the moral and . religious strength of the children will lead to the establishment of more junior societies. Master Fred Jones, the president of the society, a bright lad of fourleen, made a splendid verbal report to the convention. Tlie address by Rev. Mr. Suckow on "Our Associate Members" was a well written paper, varying somewhat from the commonly accepted opinions touching the relations of associate members. 'Personal lesponsibility in the work" by Rev. AV. L. Ferris, of Cherokee, was an excellent paper. Rev. G. S. Ilanscom not being present in the evening, tlie time was given to the address of Rev, H. D. .lenkins on "Aims and Aids to Christian Endeavor" He touched upon the living issues of the society, upon the wori'f it had accomplished and upon what it might do. It was an inspiration to all who heard it and one of the most profitable features of the convention. With a consecration meeting the convention closed. Mrs. Slocum, state secretary, stood down in front of the pulpit and the members of the various societies stood beside her in line on either side. Tlie line reached clear around the church. Then in regular order every member, with the possible exception of a half dozen, gave some testimony or offered a short prayer. This lasted about fifteen minutes. In closing they joined hands and sang "God be with you till we met again." Our young folks acquitted themselves admirably in their hospital endeavors. Every one was well cared for. Special credit is due to the committee that looked after the care and comfort of the visitors. The church was crowded on tlio last night so that the lecture room was thrown open and filled. Notice.

Croquet and lawn tennis were the pojmlar games in LeMars on Thanksgiving Day. The weather was delightful for it. A lemonade Sunday school pic nic would have been very comfortable and agreeable.

Mrs. Lamplougli fell through a trap door accidentally left open, into the cellar Sunday evening while walking through her kitchen in the dark. She was badly bruised about her head and shoulders and quite a gash was cut in her head. She was unconscious for some time. No one heard her fall and the rest of the family were out. On recovering consciousness, she crawled to the next door and called help. She had several fainting spells during the night. Dr. nines attended her, and yesterday she was slowly improving. There was a time when people thought that cash would buy hardware cheaper than a time store, but that time has passed and people are convinced that Watkins & Co. down them all, cash or no cash. "Watkins & Co. 93t4 Court oponcd yesterdayAiBOMiing and the principal part of: the da; wbs con> sumcd by Hon. John F; Dunobmboi of Fortt)odgc, and A. L. Hudson, of Sioux City, in arguing the motion for a rnew trial in the cose ot State of loTtra vsi The Illinois Central Railroad Company; The railroad was indicted for obstructing the streets and the first suit, a few months ago, was decided against the company. Duncombe represents the road and Hudson and County Attorney Parrell the State of Iowa. The judge will render his decisioti on the motion later. The principal interest of this term of court is fixed upon the numerous cases growing out ot the Dunn defalcation of last spring. There are seven cases on the docket involving property worth well up toward fifty thousand dollars. The cause of this litigation is tins: J. M. Dunn did a loan business in LeMars. In making a loan upon a farm, he caused the notes and mortgage to be made out to Peter Egan, Jr., or order. Then the farm was convoyed by trust deed to J. M. "Dunn for security. The notes and mortgage were than sent to Boston and sold on the market. The money was sent back here and given to the farmer and tlie trust deed cancelled. So far so good, this was perfectly traight and legitimate. But in many instances men wanted to pay off their mortgages at the end of three years. Dunn received the money and released the mortgages by the usual endorsement on the margin of the record in the county recorder's office. Instead of sending the money east and getting back the farmer's notes and mortgage, he keptthe money and used it himself, paying the interest regularly to the eastern parties.. His speculations did not turn out as well as he expected. He lost money by the drouths in Dakota; the water works cost more than he expected, etc. When the loans came dun he could not pay them, so he is now counted among the missing. Many of these farms have been sold since Dunn released the mortgages and new loans have been placed upon them. In some cases the property has changed hands several times. This causes numerous complications. The men who paid the money and did not get tlieir notes back obj(Ct to paying it again. The parties who hold the notes claim that as the notes were negotiable paper and had been transferred, that Dunn was not authorized to receipt for the money on them or to satisfy the mortgages. The other side claims that Dunn was acting as agent for Jeilncs &Son, of Boston, the brokers who sold the securities; that as such agent, he placed the loans and while still acting in that capacity satisfied the mortgages, therefore that this satisfaction was perfectly regular and valid. Parties who have bought the lands and those who have taken them as security for new leans claim, that as the county records showed the lands to be clear, therefore, they as innocent purchasers should not be subject to loss because of the existence of the unpaid mortgages. On the other hand it is claimed that, if Dunn was not authorized to release the mortgages, then the releases on the records are void and the records do not legally show the lands to be clear. Numerous other questions arise. There are seven cases involved in ditficulty as follows: J. P. Quincy vs. E. A. AUine et al. C. H. Bell vs. Emma Bitsche et al. A. T. Perkins vs. Paul Boever et al. J. P. Qnincy vs. Nicholas Grinshach, et al. D. P. Livermore vs. John Maxwell et al. Ann Davis vs. Math Werle et al. W. li. Robeson vs. Stephen English et al. The latter was begun yesterday. The cases are tried to the judge. TherQ'is no work for effect to enlist the sympathy or the prejudices of a jury, but it is law. and logic from the stort. There is a brilliant array of legal talent employed in the suits and every case is developed as carefully and as accurately as the demonstration of an intricate problem in geometry. Our local bar almost to a man represent various interests at stake, Of attorneys from abroad connected with these cases there are A. F. Call and .L H. Swan, of Sioux City; E, C.

Sheriff Boyle got a new boarder yesterday so he can try the new jail on him. It is George Manderville this time. He went out to see the city about two weeks ago with a man named Nothers. Nothers had cash. Manderville had his gall. They both took oysters at a soup house. It went to their heads and spoilt their gait as walkers. Nothers paid the bills. The next heard of them, Nothers was standing by the railroad track yelling for help and calling to people to catch the gas mill, meaning Manderville. "Gas mill" is a pet name that folks have for Manderville, because he always ' has enough conversation left on hand to fill balloons and light the streets. He is built that way. Some one was running away, but the spectators could not catch him. Nothers - claims that Manderville stole twenty dollars of him and ran away with it, Manderville claims that he is not in it at all. He says that he started home with !Nothers, but that Nothers got sleepy and wanted to go to bed on the sidewalk. He got him along to the railroad track when Nothers laid down. Manderville concluded that a man ought not to'be too particular where he slept, so he left him lying by the side of the railroad track in a good safe place near the rail and went on. He did not take the money and does not know anything about it. Unfortunately foi; him, several witnesses think that he is the man seen running away. The case was up before Justice Kain yesterday. The justice concluded to leave the conundrum for the grand jury to think about, and fixed Mr. Manderville's bail at $200. in default of which that gentleman now lives up on the hill.
