The new pension bill is going to be
a big thing for Hult county. Already

Two weeks ago, aa an item of lo
cal news of Interest to many of onr
readers, we copied a portion of an
editorial in the St. Joseph Gazette an
nouncing that the cace agalnat Clark
Irvine and others for withholding pen
sions, bad recently been argued before
the Supreme Court of the United
States. The Gazttie of last Saturday
says the cases have been deoldad
Judge Clifford delivering the opinion.
The Gazelle says: "The decision ia
that it is within Ibe power of Congress
to protect pension money until it falls
into' the hands of the beneficiary, and
that the Clrcut Court of the United
States has jurisdiction to try offenders
in ruea cases under the provisions of
the act of Congress under which the
inJIctmeotjvss found. As we under
stand it, the other two questions were
whether the crimo was coiitlnuous.nnd
whether the statute of limitations
barred the Indictment, both of which
weradccldvd in thp ppgatlvp laat Mon
day." One of onr exchanges relates the
Willowlng affecting story; A certain
got inad at the editor and stop
ped his paper. The next wek he sold
all his corn at four cents below the
market price; then his property was
6old for taxes, because, be didn't know
they were due; be failed to be nomi
nated for the office be wanted, bacausw
he only beard of the convention three
days after it ld adjoutned; he lost
810 betting on Mollle McCarthy two
days after Ten Broeck bad wou the
race; he was arrested and fined ?3 for
going hunting on Sunday; and he paid
$300 for a lot of forged notes that had
been advertised two weeks, and tho
public cputioned not to negotiate them.
He then paid a big Irishmau with a
fool like a derrick, to kick him all the
way to the newspaper office, when bo
paid four years subscription in ad
vautjft and made the editor sign aud
swear to an agreement to knock him
down and rob him if ho ever ordered
