And universally popular after they have had a fair to in two very import Maui uie Eures that Weinem Ich discussed in the general Assembly of 1881, and which have won approval in general consideration since that time should a enacted into Laws at the present session.

The Louisville courier journal diagnoses the condition and prospects of its party As follows Quot the democratic party can not make sure of electing its nominee in 1884. Why is this it is because the party is not one with itself. It goes mean luring after unknown gods. It Folio we false prophets. It catches at every Straw that blows in every Breeze. No sooner was the Over whelming rebuke of the administration recorded in favor of Grover Cleveland than it leaped to the conclusion that it had found a president although it Knelt a no More of the new Man s character and opinions than of court etiquette in the wilds of Africa. This deference to everything except the Chance of a speculative aval labile y accounts for much of the aimlessness of the party managers. Who have devoted so much of their time beating about the Bush of the new York graphic has been figuring up the places that foreign bom citizens occupy in the councils of our nation. The Irish born members of the next House of representatives Are Twenty in number while the German born Are but seven although the German born population of the United states considerably exceeds the Irish born. Of the Twenty Irish members four Are from Missouri new Jersey and Pennsylvania have three each new Fork and Indiana two each and Massachusetts Illinois Iowa Kansas Nevada and California one each. Oat of the Twenty Only three Are Republic Caos. The seven germans Are credited one each to new York new Jersey and Massachusetts and two each to Michigan and Wisconsin. Two of the seven Are republicans. The Only state the majority of whose delegation of the next House is foreign born is new Jersey. The Uhl dam cum. The fatal weakness of the Uhl claim against the City is the fact that the Law recognizes no such thing As an ownership of running water. This doctrine was held by the supreme court in the Pottmeyer Case wherein it was further chided that the operation of nature congealing running water into ice and attaching the ice to contiguous real state added the ice As property to the real estate. It is the use of the water of al River Only that the Uhls Are entitled to and that use is limited to their actual requirements. They would not think of attempting to prevent mrs. Jones from getting her washing water from their portion of the River or of prohibiting Peter Smith from watering his horses in it and even if they did attempt these acts of owner a ship they would t find any Law to sustain them. Their sole cause of action against anybody for the use of this water is an injury to them resulting from such use and their remedy the measure of actual damages caused by the injury. Now what Are the facts in the Case have the Uhl s Ever been injured to the extent of five cents by the loss from eel River of the water sent through the Mains of the water works is it not a fact that at the very lowest stage of the River ten times More water Escapee through and Over the Uhl dam to ctn is pumped into the Mains the answers of these questions will be Given with one voice again to the Uhi s. This being the Case they Bave no cause of action against the City. They have no claim upon the water of eel River that they do not need. That surplus is free and belongs to the Public. The talk about condemning the Uhl dam and paying $30,000 or $40 000 for it As the Only Way to Settle this absurd Uhl claim is ridiculous if not suspicious. The City has no surplus capital to invest in Mill dam and water Power speculations and even if she had she could not afford to engage in that kind of business. The water Power she now owns As a necessary part of her water works is As much of that kind of property As she can manage and it is More than probable that even that management will pass to the hands of private lessees or owners before it is utilized to the Best Adan to be. But it is out of the Power of the City to pay $30,000 or $5,, for Mill dams or anything else while the constitutional limitation applies and Quot old in Junco remains on guard. There is but one Way to meet the Una claim. Let them sue the City and prove their damages. The Chance of beating them horse fool and dragons Quot is too Good to be thrown away against the interests of the tax payers of the City. It will be time enough aft a they have established a Shadow of their claim in the courts to consider the quention of condemning and paying $30,0j0 or $40,000 for a heir old Mill dam. Of Okay Mandler. The Gougar Mandler scandal is now on trial at Lafayette with a brillant array of Legal Talent on both sides. The opening statements of the counsel were made before the jury tues Day morning. Mchugh in behalf of the defence said they would show a Clandestine meeting of Helen m. Go Gnu Ger and Captain w. Dewitt Wallace that they did commit adultery that Captain Wallace visited the plaintiff at night during uie absence of her husband and remained All night and until the next Day about three o clock when he As seen to leave the residence and Fly Down the Street that the plaintiff went to Wallace s office during september and remained there for an hour and a half and that when she went in said offi be a sign was put on the door who it a said Quot out Quot and Captain Wallace cd me Down stairs wiping the perspiration from his brow. Colonel Dehart in stating the Case for the Plait fit said that they would show that the defendant denied that he Ever said anything about the slander and that he denied having seen the parties that it was a conspiracy concocted Long before and coolly deliberately and Isu sely planned and that when first confronted with it they denied it but afterwards admitted it. Tuesday afternoon the witness examination was commenced. The Lafayette courier in speaking of the trial says Quot notwithstanding the fact that Strong Rumor prevailed that the floor of the court room was insecure and liable to take a Tumble Tany moment it was even More densely thronged if such a thing was possible than yesterday. The Miling dividing the crowd from the Arena was almost listed from its mooring by the intensely interested spectators eager to catch the faintest approach to anything like naughtiness. The plaintiff by the Way might Clear a Small Fortune just now from the Sale of her photographs with Autographic attachment. It is said that in Case she is successful in her suit that she will make a lecture tour the coming season taking for her theme some rude subject As Quot our to reducers Quot or How we sat Down on f satan s emis Arier. If she does she will make in warm for the boys. Rumor hath at hat she is already in receipt of several handsome offers from Managan. We give these for what they Are Worth. One significant fact it May be amiss to add in this connection is that she is certainly taking copious notes of the proceed ing but then this May be for pub cation in our oat in the Gold world. From the daily of january 24 a couple of labourers working up near the Davis farm East of the City reported on their return to the City last evening tent a woman was in the Woods near the Davis Bridge trying to keep warm by a fire made of Brush Wood. Captain Morrissey and officer Rodabaugh kindly took the trip up there Well knowing that it the woman slept in the Woods All night she would suffer severely from the cold.

They went to Cutler first Medler saying he wished to visit a Farmer living near that place named Wright. He left his daughter at Cutler to wait until he returned. She waited a reasonable length of time when she became anxious and went in search of him. She could get no Trace of the old Man whatever. She inquired everywhere Lor her father but no one had seen him. She Nad Only Dollar and a half with her and concluded to come on to this City. She walked nearly All of the Way Andreacei Here yesterday afternoon going directly through the City to the Woods near the Davis Bridge. When asked what she intended to do she answered that she did not know and hardly cared what became of her. She is a woman of about Twenty six years of age and when quest soued As to herself hid her tace and cried. She was very thinly dressed and had a shawl tied around her head and wore a Straw hat Over Thi a. One is afraid her father lost his Way and living a very old Man is wandering about like herself. The Case should be inquired into Aud the necessary help volunteered to Aid her in returning to her mods.

A sep action was granted in the Cir Cuit court yesterday which brought out a line of facts and May sometime make it rather uncomfortable for the defendant in the Case. It seems that on the 13 the Day of december 1879, at the town of Camden. Carroll county ind., a wedding ceremony took place the parties interested being James Mccullough and Becca a. Richards. According to mra. Mccullough s Story she and her husband lived together about a year and a half when her husband suddenly and mysteriously disappeared.
