Hanl.-y With Him, and Mr. lloyd Also-- Important ami I iitcrf.MtiiiuChaiijfeK The Minneapolis announces the rctin-ment of.J.I> from the Minneapolis iV M Louis road, he liavinsj resigned tlit- oilii-cs of Vice President, (leneral Director, and member of the ev-cutive commit- tee, to assume, his nev. position of as- sistant to President Allen Manvel of the Atehison, Topeka A .Niute Ft-. He has also resigned the mlice of solicitor of the -Sou" load which lie has held lor live years, and has already taken up his residence with his lamily in Chicago. As .Mr. Springer has a large circle of iriends in Southern .Minnesota, and especially in Albert Li-a. and is well known throughout tl.e state, his move will be of genei.il interest. Tlie Tribune says: Allen Manvel, of the Atehison, Topeka i: .Nmte Fe Railway Company, lias been commended for the foresight and "horse .v-nse" displayed in making recent appointments of sub- ordinates, and the Northwest has been drawn on for some of the best timber used in making Santa !'e ofiicials since his acceptance of the management of that road. Perhaps in none of his pre- vious appointments, however, has he shown the ability which is confidently expected by his friends to bring the Atehison back into the dividend pay- ing roads, as he has in the naming of .Judge Springer a-> his assistant and adviser in the cond.ict of Atehison affairs. .Judge Springer is too well known to the Minneapolis public and the people of the Xonhwest to need more than a brief mention now. Horn at Gettysburg, Pa., in Isl4, uncontrol- lable circumstances took him to Ohio, and later to Iowa. At the opening of the late war he enlisted and served live years, quitting the service with the title of captain in the regular army. In I860 he was admitted to the practice of law in Iowa, remaining in that state la years, the last two of which were devoted to the legal aliairs of the bt. Louis road. In 1881 he came to Min- neapolis where he has remained ever since, securing in that time a most en- viable position in the esteem of the best people of the state and entire Xortliwest. Some of the most import- ant cases of late years in this section have been won by Mr. the last being the well known Hill- Clyde coal company case which has just been decided in favor of Judge Springer's clients. His masterly hand has been apparent in the management of the St. Louis crossings case, in which he has maintained the- rights of his company against the discouraging odds of unlimited capital and a misguided public sentiment. Having beaten his wily adversary at every point the judge has begun the task of setting the pub- lic right regarding the position of the contestants when this call to a new iield'of labor creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill, both in the posi- tion of general counsel for the St. Louis railway and tire hearts of his many warm personal friends. The judge will leave for Chicago about the 1st of November, peculiar knowledge of the affairs of the St. Louis road will render frequent visits to Minneapolis necessary for some time." He will return to Minneapolis this week to close up his business as far as possible, when he will be given a fare- well banquet at the West Hotel by his friends in that city. His successor as solicitor of the M. st. L. is A. E. Clarke Esq. of Fort Dodge, one of the ablest, most success- ful and popular members of the Iowa bar. He has been intimately associated with Mr. Springer for many years, and for eight years has been the' Iowa at- torney of the road. We predict that he will at once command the confi- dence of the public and soon win and retain an honorable and leading posi- tion in the bar of this state. Another interesting capture made by the great Sante Fe road is that of J. A. Ilanley, formerly the able general passenger agent of the M. St. L. who has been appointed freight traffic man- ager of the Sante Fe. and it is reported that is. F. the present popular general passenger agent of the M. A: St. L., is also to go with Messrs. Springer and Ilauley into the service of the Santa Fe. Parents' Duty. Parents should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early winter months. Such colds weakens the lungs and air pass- ages, making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that causes catarrh and bronchi- tis, or paves the way for consumption. Should a cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible. A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure any cold in a few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy. For sale by Parker Briggs. The "Fall Season.

Wilson of Allen's Springs, 111., who is over sixty years of age, says: "I have in my time tried a great many medicines, some of excellent quality; but never before did I find any that would so completely do all that is claimed for it as Chamber- lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrlwe Remedy. It is truly a wonderful medi- cine." For sale by Parker Briggs. UU.NXELJ, AM) THE OLD SOLDIERS. HIMV They Arc Getting Their He- is the Same Way Through- out the C'mi Furnish An ftxample. Spring Vallcj Vldt-tte. j The appointments thus far made in I Pillrnore county, namely lluaht'ord, Lanesboro. Preston, Fountain, Granger and Bristol Postmasters, raise the pertinent inquiry, are the soldiers of Fillmore county being ignored by the powers that be? Not a soldier has been yet appointed in this county. Is this fact significant? If so, who is responsible. Recurrence to recent history will now be interesting. There are in the nine counties of this con- gressional district some L'nion soldiers. In 1W, this solid soldier vote elected Judge Thomas Wilson over .John A. Lovely, solely on Lovely's copperhead record; in other words'to rebuke Lovely for his anti-soldier sen- timents. Is there a sane man in this district who can deny this patent, irre- futable fact In 1888 these Union soldiers voted almost solidly for Colonel M. H. Dunnell as against Judge Wilson. Whyy Because Colonel Dunnell is a I'nion soldier; was colonel of a Maine regiment, stood on the Chicago plat- form which declared its undying love and preference for Union soldiers; and further because Colonel Dunnell said on every stump in this district that he would carry out the Chicago, and the Rochester platforms upon which he stood, and give the old soldiers prefer- ence in matters of appointments. Is there a veteran in Fillmore county who fails to remember the pledges of the '88 canvass? There cannot be one! Have these pledges and promises in the plat- forms upon which Harrison and Dun- nell were elected, been redeemed V If not, who is Let the appointments at I'ushford, Lauesboro, Preston, Fountain, Granger and Bristol answer. They respond in tones that can not be misunderstood. '90 is at hand. What now will the soldiers do in the coming "off" year? To come closer home; what will the 500 Union soldiers in Fillmore county do in 1890? Dunnell and Wil- son will almost surely be the candi- dates. Wilson's candidacy is beyond a peradventure.

Several excellent men certified to the character and capacity of Brear, the deputy state boiler inspector, in last week's Enterprise, and scowled at the STANDARD because we criticised him, his business and his uniform. We simply call their attention to the fol- lowing facts: The STANDARD is a live paper and prints all the news worth printing: it has been printed in this town and county over 32 years, and during that time, although until within two or three years there has been no official inspection, so far as we can find there has never been a case of boiler explosion in the county, or damage or loss of life resulting from a .defective boiler or incompetent engineer. Under the law, the cost to the tax-payers of the county for boiler inspection is year- ly about 8500. The inspection is made once a year, and it is impossible that any boiler should continue as safe dur- ing the year as when inspected; thus it is liable to prove defective at any time. Moreover, certificates are issued to operators of steam thresher engines, who make no pretentious to being ex- perts, and the thresher engines are more than all others most liable to cause trouble. What earthly good, then, is boiler inspection Take the nine counties in this congressional dis- trict and it will be seen that the boiler inspector has a soft snap. The tax- payers must pay him. He can afford to wear a uniform, and it is no credit to the Grand Army that such a leech claims fellowship and masquerades in their colors. The state has too many such qfficers. They are political para- sites. They live on the industry of their fellow men without rendering an honest equivalent. Their offices are created to reward men for political ser- vices, and not because such offices are needed. The state is assuming to pry into and regulate the affairs of the peo- ple too much. Such'legislation is based on the theory that everybody needs a guardian. It is nonsense and sham and an outrage, and we are surprised that liberty-loving, self-respecting and intelligent men should give such laws and the men who servilely execute them the manual of their endorsement and approval.
