Waterloo Courier, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1886, Waterloo, Iowa VOLUME 23NUMBER WATERLOO IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 30 188G WHOLE NUMBER 1409 WATERLOO COURIER Kinsey Jordan Ottumwas notorious aaloou keeper was jailed Saturday night on a line of 81000 or 300 days in jail Mrs L Tucker of Maquoketa be came insane during the recent hot weather and on Monday drowned her self hi a cistern Grandma Jordan as she was called the oldest person in Iowa died at Wiota Friday night aged 111 years She was born in Lexington Kentuckyi Senator Lafe Young of Atlantic has purchased the Des Monies Capital paying 58000 for it Senator Young isone of the strong newspaper men of the State and by making the Capital a strong newspaper he will meet with success A dispateli from Cedar Rapids last Monday states that 91 persons who ate ice cream at a festival in Nugents Saturday night were poisoned The poison caused vomiting fever and convulsions All arerecovering how ever LastSatinday afternoon John and William Level of Vinton got in to a dispute over some furniture when John picked up a stick hard wood and struck his brother a fearful blow over the head causing wounds from which his recovery is considered doubtful That is a strange thing to take place in this country It would a strange thing to hap pen in any country if loyally is to be punished and treachery be rewarded But to such strange conclusions have things come in this country that the men who wore the blue tind itll disqual ification for public service and reward and the men who tried to break up the Union have their infamy crowned with public honors Congress may order and tlie President may restore to his old rank the man who proved recreant to his trust on the field of battle but the verdict of history will be the ver dict that Lincoln and Garfield pro nounced upon him It is a strange coincidence that while Congress was passing the bill to restore Porter to his rank and pay him a year as long as he shall live the President was vetoing a bill to pay a few dollars a month to the widow of the soldier who presided over the court martial that convicted him of coward ice and treachery The words of Logan come in with peculiar appropriateness to such a spectacle If you are true when you might be treacherous you are vetoed There is no difficulty in giving a pension of a year to a man who failed in the hour ot need while the widows of Union soldiers who fought gallantly for their country and died in its defense are denied a paltry pittance because they cannot produce all the technical evidence to support their claims that a substitute President requires There is little en couragement for men to be patriotic and true iu the treatment that patriot ism and fidelity receive in these latter days WATER FITTHTCSI ATT AT BARRY

with stemfaced sentinels who gazed into the gloom below and warned all of us not to try to get out by climbing through tho hatches Jfen sprang high in the air and clutched the hatchrailings and had their hands smashed with musketbutts Sentinels paced to and fro along the vessels deck and called loudly to al row boats to keep off or they would be fired upon They did not intend that any fresh

by Judge Stonemnn of the Superior Court in Cedar Rapids The defendant was a Mrs Peckhrxm a leader in the army who was charged with beating a bass drum on the streets on Sunday aud that snare drums and tambourines were also beaten by per sons in the procession The defend ant contended that the beating of the drums etc was a part of the religious exercises of the array and could not be construed as a misdemeanor Judge Stoneman in his rulings upon the sub ject held that the guarantee of the constitution was intended to protect people in the reasonable exercise of re ligious liberty and he continued It has never been understood in civilized countries that religious lib erty subverted the duty of all men to so use their own right as not unreason ably to interfere with the equal rights of others Any other definition than ttiis would be subversion of religious liberty and put it in the power of the noisy few who might desire to cele brate their orgies on the public streets with the beating of drums the blast of trumpets and the roar of cannon on the Sabbath to render the holding of other religious assemblies by the quiet multitude of orderly people impossible The constitution does not justify the assumption of the defendants that the rafting of conduct otherwise diaorder The Game Pishes of the West is the title of a special illustrated edition of the American Angler just issued

His record throughout was more than was brilliant Immedi ately after the war was over he was ad mitted to the bar having completed his studies with one of the best law firms in Iowa He soon became active in politics although without for a moment giving up his profession all the places that he accepted being in line with his studies He entered the Forty eighth Congress in which he took an active part and was reelected to the present Congress where his ability and energy are rapidly bringing him to the front He is a man of genial character and few men are more successful than he in every
