   Janesville Daily Gazette (Newspaper) - October 21, 1885, Janesville, Wisconsin                               FOLUME 29 Entered at the Otaev nt Janes-1 matter. I JANESVILLB, WISCONSIN WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1885 Senator Evarta has taken the Btump in New York, and that means a great deal for the republicans. Driviuca sliarp point is makinp a comparison: Mr. Vilas is -willing to give eight cents to his email buy special delivery messenger to carry a letter a quarter of o mile, and live cents to a steamship, com oauy to carry one from WewYorkto Havana. And from one end tho country to tho other cornea a cry from tbe (.mall boy that he is ill paid. Excluding Key Woof, -where soathern Uoridn. reaches into the tropics, the hottest part ot tbe 'United States is tno lower part ot the Bio Grande valley. The hottest point where reirular data are kept is Fort Bmggold, which lias a mean annual temperature ot 73.4 de- grees. Next to Kinggold comes ilnredo, with 72 G degrees; and Fort Yurna, at the mouth of the Rio Grande, 72.3 degrees. Wheat bushels, corn bushels, rye bushels, 1 barley bushels. As compared wiih the figures showing tbe amount in BK-bt ou the 10th, show an increase of bushels of wheat, bushels of corn, bushels ot oats, boshels of rye and bushels ot barley. In Eau Claire there is a district issue tetweenlhe board ot health and the board of education. A week ago the, former ordered the schools olooed in order to avoid the spread of diphtheria, over thirty oases having broken out among the children. Yesterday the edu- cational board attempted to reopen the schools, but were prevented by police operating nnder orders of the mayor and the health board. There is'to be a legal contest over the affair, to see which board shall prevail. Gen. Neal Dow, tLo prohibition leader of Maine, who has so often contended, contrary to the facts, that prohibition is a eucaess in Maine, now says, in a letter in the New York Post, that, :n Banger, "by common consent of the the influential people ot the city, includ- ing parsons and deacons, the grog-shops are- permitted to run openly in Ueflauca ol the law." This is a uonfession that prohibition in Bangor practically operates to produce free whisky, just as it did in all the cities of Michigan when prohibi- tion was the law there. Last Friday night a negro hostler, Har- rison Tasker, inveigled a German girl named Huendlend into his room and brutally outraged her. Ho was arrested Sunday for the crime and Monday morn- ing taken to court for examination. While the case was proceeding, Herman Huendlend, tho girl's brother, drew a revolver and shot Tasker in tbe body, the ball penetrating the right abdominal wall and producing probably a fatal wound. Before another shot could bo fired the the infuriated brother was seized by t-Ua officials andjdiaarmed. A scene ot con- tusion ensued and the court was ad- journed. Taskor was takeu to the hos- pital The physicians give no hipe of his recovery. Huendlend was removed to-the custody ot the sheriff and lodged in jail. Two years ego several domestic dogs strayea into the mountains on the head of Wind river, .Wyoming Territory, and became wild. They have now increased tosouio twenty in number and have de- d a fierce spirit. They have lo oatod in au immense cliff, and from here they issue on their excursions, which ale very disastrous to the young stock ot ranges, killing and devouring the strongest and most astive calves and easily puiting down a yearling. A few days ago as one oJ tbe employes ot the largo cattle ranches was hauling bay, his route took him by the. "Cliff of the Dogs." As he passed the dens.the sav- age inhabitants owarmod out in full foroe and made a most determined onslaught on him and the team. It took a wild race ot tbree or four miles to shake them off. Fn sizing up his injuries the ranch- man found himself pretiy badly bitten about the face arms and hands, while the horses had suffered on the chest, throat and hams. Tho mere one reads about Attorney General Garland's relations with the president, the more he is convioed that ho will bavo to go ontof thecabinet. Ct is not too harsh to say that 16 has disgraced the country. Tbe truth is, he never should have been appointed. i'bo democratic party has a good many. lawyers in iti and not a few men who are statesmen; ind why a back-woods lawyer should have been appointed attorney general has puz- zled tho besb mon in both parties. As a constitutional and political adviser of tne president in tbe cabinet, Mr. Garland is i blundering failure, As a legal adviser jf the government he is a still worse ailure. If the president appointed bim limply because he thought that office honld go to the south, it was a mistakoi because there are scores ot better law- yers, better statesmen, and better politi- cians in the south. ,It ia to be hopei, jowever, that a successor to Mr. Garland will bo appointed from among the most iistinguishod lawyers and statesmen of he democratic pwty, without regard to iheir being from tho south. Such a man SB Thurman or McDonald would have avoided bringing scandals upon the administration, and would haye been worth something as political advisers o the president. And when Garland goes, bis lieutenants Goode and Mont- gomery must go also, or the country will not be satisfied. All are tarred with the samp stick. The president can not afford to keep such men in office, ven if bo did not profess cer- ginly not while he professes "reform." Carl Sohurz has written a letter declar- ing that tbe independents should and will vote for Davenport and the republi- can state'ticket in New York this fall, Mr. Sohurz defends this action on the ground that Mr. Davenport has a good character and Mr. Hill a bad character; and that Mr, Davenport represents true reform and Mr. Hill tho worst kind of anti-reform. But when M.r. Sohurz trios to answer tho fact that President Clove- land will hinuelE vote for Mr. Hill, while he claims that the independents support the president, he grows muddled. The fact js that, by voting for Mr. Davenport, the independents support reforms which President Cleveland professed to be in favor of, and which tho republican party really H in favor of; but they cannot thereby support President Cleveland, acts and- vote for Hill prove his professions ot reform to be merely pro fossions. On the contrary m supporting the reforms tho independents find them- selves compelled to support tlio republi- can party, beoiuiae it ia 'now so plainly evident that it is tho only party re form._____________ Tlie Chicago Journal of last evening: elevators, us per official re- turns, contain 12.C98.3G4 Ibushels of wheat, bushels of corn, bushels of oats, bushels o{ rye and S7.8SG bushels of barley, making a grand total of 14, bushels againBt bushels .a week ago and bushels at this .period las' year.

Visible eupply of grain 'in -the United States Tho attention of congress is called to he fact that some of the terrible loss of [Co and property due to tornadoes can be verted. In 1882, Prof. T. B. Maury, as- erted what was then the fact, that the irediction ot a tornado was a triumph to be attained by the science of met- eorology. In less than two years from from that time some predictions of ornadoes were successfully msdo by lieutenant John P, Finley of the Signal Service. The percentage ot verified irediotions is steadily increased by know- edge of the average conditions proced- ng each series of tornadoes, thus making he predictions more definite and loca with each succeeding year. Already the rediotions of safety for the day are eotive. Of 3228 predictions unfavor- ,ble to tornadoes, made in 1S84, 3201 rero verified, and of 38 predictions that omadoes would occur made in April nd Jane. 1884, IS wore verified. Oi 19 irediotione that tornadoes would ooou made in June and July, were enerally verified. When tornadoes were redioto3, in no instance did violent torms fall to occur, cither hurricanes, ornado or hnil. Tbe failure of some pre- ictions is doubtless duo to the inaocu- acate and insufficient reports from parsely settled regions. While it is ad- mitted that nothing like nbsolate control t these phenomen a has bceu attained, ot the above figures clearly justify the he presence of toruado signals either of afety or danger at every telegraph sta- lon in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Illi- nois, Iowa. Ohio, Michigan Wisconsin, Georgia and North Carolina, especially during April, May, June, July, August ad September. It is hoped that congress will direct tbe signal service to submit estimates of tho expense necessary to stablish such a system of The oost would be a few thousand dollars for flags or colored discs, and for telegraph Emerald Grove, quiet wedding took place in tho iome ot-fcoren Cheney, last Wednesday, be 14th inst., the eldest daughter, Killa L.

Hearing some Of tho mob searching for him, he jumped tho (onco anil ran down the street, aud, being in bis stocking foot, vjou distanced tbo mob aud es- caped. Tbe mob, failing to llnd Hollar, quietly dispersed. After escaping from th o mob Holler ran to the residence of ilr. Hol- tiday, and asked to bo admitted, say ing be was afraid Prod Holler had boon shot. Holliday refused to let him in, but raUod the window and began calling for tho po- lice. Night Watchman J. Obormoyer re- sponded to the call. Ha found Hollor ly- ing at Holliday's door in a vary aihausttxl condition. Ha took him to tho office of Dr. W. C. Day, who attended to his wounds immediately. Upon oiamina- tiou it was found that the ilr.stshot lirod by tho mob was the only ono that took effect, oicapt the flesh-wound in his breast, the ball striking bolow tho navel cord.
