ACTIONS AGAINST DELAWARE
COUNTY FARMERS IN POLK
CASES ATTRACT WIDE ATTENTION
Further Actions, if Any, to be
Brought in District Court ef Dela
The Federal Mutual Insurance
Company of Des Moines failed in its
attempt to collect heavy assess
ments from a number of the farm
ers of Delaware County who held
policies with the company for tor
nado insurance. As stated in these
columns last week, suits had teen in
stituted by the insurance company
to collect annual assessments, which
the defendants claimed were many
times In excess of what the com
pany's agent said they would be.
The cases were set for. a hoaring be
•fore a. justice of the peace in Des
Moines, and'"the fanners appeared
and asked for a change of venue.
The cases were dismissed without
prejudice and at the plaintiff's costs,
$cc rdi»£ the signed stipulation
1 and an agreement entered into to
,} the effect that if in the future the
company should see fit to bring suit
*. to recoyer the assessments, the suits
would be brought in the District
1 Court in Delaware County.
The company had filed suits
against Frank Peterson, M. S. Hegh
,» rej» H. O. Lyon, Alva Sheppard,
Joseph Hermann, John Piogue, S. B.
Welterlen, W. H. Downs, and Byron
Aldrich. The suits instituted against
the above named farmers have been
dismissed' and the company has also
agreed to not bring actions in jus-
tice court against the following men
who "hold policies: F. G. Johnson,
H: W. C. Pojderboer, J. L. Yates, F.
1/ Workman, W. C. Kusick, C. F. Cun
ningham, W. Carrothers and Peter
Whether the company will bring
suit in the Delaware County District
'I court is a matter of conjecture. The
J* policy holders do not expect it. This
far the company has realized noth
ing on the tornado insurance writ
ten for the above named farmers. The
V- cases have all been dismissed with
out prejudice and at the plaintiff's
|f.-* ed in the tornado insurance proposi
tion, and it is claimed that the farm
ers will no,t "come across" until they
are ordered to do so by the court.
CHANGE IN TIME ON C. G. W.
On SuDday, January 30tli, a num
ber of changes in train schedules on
the Chicago Great Western railway
went into effect. These changes ef
fect the train schedules on the
Manchester & Oneida Railway as
Readers of The Democrat will note
the following changes in the sched
ule of the M. & O.:
Train No. 2, which lias been leav
ing at 5:40 a. m., is now leaving at
5:55 a. m. This connects with the
Chicago Great Western west bound
Train No. 4, leaves Manchester at
8:15 instead "of 8:25. This train
connects with the Chicago Great
Western east bound passenger train
and the north bound Chicago, Mil
waukoe and St. Paul.
V- Train No. 8, which has been leav
!jt"' ing Manchester at 5:00 in the af
ternoon, is now leaving at 4:55,
jj and connects with the south bound
passenger train on the Milwaukee
line, and with' the Great Western
west bouDd passenger train.
Parties desiring to go south of
Oneida on the Milwaukee in the
morning, or north of Oneida in the
evening will note that they can do
so by taking train No. 2, in the morn
ing at 5:55, and train No. 8, at 4:55
in the afternoon. In either case,
passengers will have a wait of sev
eral hours at Oneida, as the Man
chester & Oneida trains do not make
direct connections with the new
trains on the Milwaukee.

Elliott May was born in Meadville,
Crawford County, Pa., on August
10th, 1829. His parents moved to
DeKalb County, Illinois, when he
was fifteen years old. He grew to
manhood at this place and then en
gaged in farming for himself. He re
moved to Iowa about the year 1871,

1898, they retired froja the farm
and took up their residence in La-
jmont, Iowa, and the home continued
except one year recent
ly passed in Manchester. Mr. May

years and had ^required the constant
care of his wife. An attack of la
grippe hastened the end which came

months and fifteen days.
He was a hard-working man in his
working years and had a large cir

SLEET COVERS CITY.
A sleet storm which struck this
city last Friday night converted the
sidewalks, streets and lawns of Man
chester into an endless expanse of
ice, upon which it was next to im
possible for man or beast to gain
a foothold. Walking was dangerous
if not impossible, and as a result
many persons, especially the older
people, were obliged to remain in
their homes. In the cities street
railway companies found difficulty to
operate cars, and in many places
telephone and telegraph companies
suffered heavy losses because of
