Miller formerly chief Justice of the Iowa supreme court and author of Miller s annotated code and several Standard Law books was at tacked last monday night with a form of apoplexy and a partial stroke of paralysis. It is thought the judge May recover temporarily Bat at Best he will be a physical wreck. He now resides on a farm near Ames.

At the democratic state convention when voting upon the adoption of the minority report from the committee on Radical anti prohibition declaration which was chairman of a delegation announced his vote a a loud it be recorded in heaven that this county votes Burrell of the Washington county press asks Why record it in heaven where none of them will Ever see anti web horrible murder has occurred in this state of which were reported in our dispatches yesterday hanging of a helpless old Mau near Audubon by his sons who drag ged him from his bed naked and Strung him up to a tree in the door Yard. The murder is confessed and the brutal Ruf fians Are in custody. The people will the trial of those wretches and will insist that established guilt be followed by proper punishment. That the republicans of Scott county in their convention and the republicans of the second congressional District in their convention and the republicans of the state of Iowa in their convention should have All adopted the exact course urged by this paper As to National Dele Gates 2nd instructions in spite of much contrary advice from the press of the state and a powerful Effort to the contrary throughout the state is exceedingly Gratifying. Manifestly the Gazette Wes right in that or else the whole state is wrong. In the District convention at us Hofues for this congressional it was resolved on motion of or. Russell of Davenport that our District conventions be hereafter held within the District. The authority of that convention to make a Rule for the government of the republicans of the District in hold ing future conventions May Well be questioned and the advisability of de Claring now if they had the authority what they will do four years hence in that respect is equally open to question. The whole system is yet but an Experiment and much More intelligent judg. Ment can be formed upon it after this shall have ended than now.

The Sec Ketley of state among All of the names mentioned for dates upon the Republican state ticket one seem to be receiving More frequent Eulogy than that of capt. Harry Green or Secretary of state. The Waverly in dependent after speaking of his Honora Ile service in the second Iowa infantry and his equally honorable subsequent Eer. Vice As a Clergyman of the methodist episcopal Church says during his residence in Bremer county 16 has drawn about him Many Strong friends. While he has not been a seeker after office his name has often been men one Tor political positions and he has As often declined until last year when he Vas brought Forward As a candidate for he legislature upon the Republican ticket received the nomination and was. Elected. We remember Well that to take a nomination upon the Republic ticket in Bremer at that time was not ust As nicely Rose coloured As it might have Een owing to the fact that Bremer had voted against the amendment. Never the Ess the Captain consented to take the Field in the face of Odds and make a Des Erate fight to win and much to the sir Rise of Many of his friends he did win 13 a handsome majority Over his Strong est competitor. The Tama county chronicle says when party dissensions had femoral Zed and rendered Success to the Republican cause extremely doubtful in Bremer county the republicans naturally turned o him As their Standard bearer out of his Worth ability and eminent Ana timely services and Triumph Antly elected him to represent them n the twentieth general Assembly. There his record is a matter of history unblemished and untarnished character Zed by diligent and faithful work Ever Rue to the interests of his constituents and the state thus enabling his friends o Point with Pride 1o his legislative Ca reer and to congratulate the citizens of 3remer county upon the Wisdom and excellent judgment which actuated them when they nominated and elected him to the legislature.

Lie noted at Way. Mississippi s spasm of Justice is some what tardy but she can still have credit or it provided it be carried through with any result which it May pos Sibly be rash to predict at this time. The democratic papers can however now make tie most of the fact that the grand Iury of Topiah county have indicted Wheeler for the murder of Matthews at Hazel inst and the Penn Brothers for the murder of rials in the same neighbor Hood. Matthews unskilled on election Day six months before the indictment was brought and rials was killed about two months ago. Matthews was killed because he insisted upon voting the re publican ticket not to do so King in the act of depositing his ballot Ubea shot and rials was killed because went to new Orleans and testified to he of Matthews and other out before the Hoar committee. Matthews murderer has been at Large that whole Sis months the grand jury has refused to indict him he was sustained in his act by a Public meeting at the court House the next Day and was promptly rewarded by appointment As marshal at the hands of the governor. That he is now indicted and committed without bail evidences some change and if there has been au3 Agency in causing that More than the Force of Public Opin Ion As expressed in the Northern papers it is not yet known a this latitude. Certainly there has been no expression in Southern papers sufficient to cause it. It would Strain credulity to suppose that this expression has impressed the people who Rule Topiah county of the wicked Ness of those crimes but it is easy to believe that Thev have come to see the harm that must result to them in a material Way from the reputation they bad gained and More pointedly the peril to their political supremacy and the ruin of All Bope for democratic nationals us ces5. These considerations May compel the sacrifice of Wheeler and tie Penns Bat it is probable that they will be con tented with a show of enforcing Justice red then Tima release of heir whole Poss Eslon to his care and Are Eft penniless. The ruin fulls More heavy in such directions than any Ither that has occurred for a ont line and the blow upon the business Prosperity of the place is Felt to be a Terri Leone. In spite of All this it is represented that Here is a feeling of sympathy for the fleeing criminal and a disinclination to pursue him and bring him to Justice. The people cannot dash Down the idol they had erected and look upon or. Hubbard As a Gambler but that is what he is. He s a Gambler and just so much worse than he three card Monte Man and the conf Lence Man who would be thrown into jail wherever detected As he secured Confidence and abused trusts More than they and entailed More widespread and unde served ruin upon innocent persons than they. He adds to the crime of the Gam Bler that of the Confidence Man and the Hief and the robber of widows and orphans.

Deserved commendation of senator Wilson should have been Nocom mined by an equally Hearty recognition of the Long and faithful and eminent service of senator Allison and its omis Sion was doubtless wholly inadvertent. Every of course at once sup lies it in his own mind. There s a reasonable Hope among Iowa re pub that the presidential nomination maj yet fall to senator Allison and a declaration of Confidence in him in any position to which he might be called would have met a response in that convention As i Earty As any that it gave. The Tariff Plank declares what is the unquestionable attitude of Iowa republicans As a whole upon that question and the endorsement of president Arthur s administration and the declaration of the preference of the state for or.

Thoman entitled real and imaginary effects of in it is a historical and statistical compilation intended As an argument that tile effects popularly ascribed Are More imaginary than real. It is quite to take up that Issue. The daily observation and experience of the people of this country have acquainted them pretty Well with what Are those effects whether they Are real or imaginary and whether they Are Good or had. That they Are exaggerated in the minds of some people in some particulars is quite possible. That they have Ever yet been adequately comprehended by the general Public in their deplorable consequences upon the people at Large As a Community considered either physically or economically is not and milled. Whether the degree to which alcohol has been an agent in the insanity imbecility pauperism and crime that exist in this country be less than advocates of Temperance have claimed or not need not be considered Here. The statistics and reports which or. Thoman collects in the appendix to his work Are designed to show that it is much less but even up on his showing it is sufficiently grave to make that agent the Ishmael of the world.

The single age of 20 years surpasses the High est other by More than two to one. In this connection the column of causes to which the excesses Are attributed is very significant.
