The Legislature is still grinding
away and seems in no hurry to ad
journ site die. It has taken its usual
tri weekly adjournment about once a
eek for some time past, to the great
anil unnecessary delay of public bus
iness. It is now thought the final
adjournment will not take place till
about May ist.
Probabilities of war between Eng
land and Russia are increasing, and
it is difficult to see how peacecan be
preserved unless Russia makes satis
factory apologies and reparation for
the invasion of the neutral territory
and the capture of the Afghan town
of Tcnideh. Mr. Gladstone is still
waiting to ascertain the facts, as Ihere
seems to be some dispute about
them, but meantime continues active
preparations for war.
Senator Sherman is making his bi
ennial spring visit home, to look
after his garden fences at Mansfield
and his political fences in other parts
of the State. He was invited to visit
the Legislature last week and had a
formal reception by both houses.
In the evening he had a public re
ception by the Columbus Board of
Trade and made an admirable speech
particularly defining his position on
the silver question in favor of a dol

Secretary Bayard is showing his
antipathy to colored citizens by re
fusing to pay Hon. Geo. V. Williams,
the new Minister to Hayti, part of his
salary before leaving this country,
according to the usual custom in
such cases. He added a gratuitous
insult to the injustice done Mr.
Williams by offering to pay him if he
would resign his commission, which
he very properly refused to do. It
is a disgraceful and petty exhibition
of race prejudice on the part of the
Secretary of State towards a colored
citizen, who is his equal in all re
spects under the constitution and the
laws, and his superior in 'courtesy
and good manners.
The special committae appointed

Gen. Grant Improving.
To the great surprise of everybody,
even of his family and physicians,
there has been a decided improve
ment in General Grant's condition
during the past week or ten days
He has suffered much less and has
been able to obtain sleep without
the use of narcotics. So great has
been his improvement that it is now
thought probable he may survive for
some weeks or even months, and
some of his more sanguine friends
really have hopes of his ultimate re
covery. Some doubts have been ex
pressed whether his disease is really
cancer, but all his physicians still
pronounce it so.
With this issue the ISews enters
upon the 49th year of its publication,

1837, which was 48 years ago yester
day. It will be noticed that this

discrepancy being explained by the
fact that 52 weeks are counted as

amounts to 60 days or a little over
The News has now been published
continuously for a longer period
than any other paper in the county.
Although the Gar.ttte was established
in 1818, it was entirely suspended in
1862, and so continued for nearly
year, its place being filled by the

THE IOWA LIQUOR LAW.
The Supreme Court Declares Saloons
The Supreme Court of Iowa,
through her Chief Justice, Judge
James H. Rothrock, of Cedar Rapids,
has recently pronounced an impor
tant decision unanimously sustaining
the constitutionality of the prohibi
tory law of that State. The decision
was rendered at Council Bluffs,
March 17th, on a case appealed
from the Polk county circuit court.
The gist of the decision is that under
the laws and constitution of Iowa,
saloons or dram-shops are a public
nuisance, which can be promptly
and summarily abated by the courts,
on the application of any citizen for
an injunction. The opinion of Judge
Rothrock is able, clear and unan
swerable, and fully discusses and
meets all the legal points raised by
the opponents of the law against its
constitutionality. The point chiefly
relied on by counsel for the liquor
sellers, was that the remedy by in
junction was illegal, because it de
prived them of the right of trial by
jury, but Judge Rothrock shows that
courts of equity are not bound by
the ordinary rules of other courts in
the abatement of nuisances, and if
satisfied that the nuisance exists,
can abate it at once without the slow
and uncertain process of a jury trial.
Under this decision, if the law is as
faithfully executed by the inferior
courts, as its constitutionality is
clearly established by the authority
of the Supreme Court, the liquor
traffic in Iowa has received a blow
from which it can scarcely recover,
as it will be in the power of any citi
zen to close every dram shop, on
proof of its character to the satisfac
tion of the court, and will go far to
settle the vexed question whether
prohibition in Iowa does prohibit
Happy the people of Iowa, with
her 60,000 Republican majority
which has made possible a public
sentiment in regard to the liquor
traffic so strong and enlightened as
to demand a law recognizing public
dram shops as the moral pests and
nuisances which every good citizen
knows them to be, and whose highest
legal tribunal has the courage and
rectitude to administer the law with
out fear or favor.
In this connection it gives us
pleasure to remind our readers of
the fact, that Judge Rothrock is a
native of this county, whose reputa
tion as a jurist in the State of his
adoption, does honor to his birth
place. Many of our older readers
will remember that he was elected
Prosecuting Attorney of Highland
county about the year 1858, and was
for some time a law partner of the
late Col. W. O. Collins. He soon
after removed to Iowa, where he
rapidly rose in his profession. He
served in the war with distinction
and after his return was elected
common pleas judge, then a judge of
the Supreme Court, which position
he has filled with marked ability for
some years past.

The Next Governorship.
Monday's Ccmmfrcial ,i.v.7 has
an interesting letter from its well in
formed Columbus correspondent "J.
11." in regard to the chances of the
various Republican candidates for
the Governorship. From a careful
survey of the field, he thinks there
is a strong probability of Judge
Forakcr's nomination, either on the
first ballot or by acclamation. The
three leading candidates seem to be
Judge Foraker, Gen. Bealty of Col
umbus, and Gen. Kennedy of Belle
fountaine, whose chances are in the
order named. He divided the dele
gations from the various courties at

Senator Sherman said in Colum
bus the other day, that he did not
"regard it as proper for any one in
a Representative capacity to seek to
influence the nominating conven

MRS. ELIZABETH BRADLEY
Died very suddenly at her son's residence in
Buford, April 11th, 1885. She was born in
Fayette county.rennsylvania, between Browns-
villo and Uuiontown, on the 12th of April,
1801, and was a daughter of David and DebO'
rah Crable. She was married in the same
neighborhood where she was born, to William
Bradley. Some years after they were married
they moved to Chester, Randolph county, Ills.
where her husband died in IBM. Bister Brad'
ley was left a widow with one son, Sanford
Bradley, then about thirteen years old. In
October, 1851, she niaved to Buford, where she
reared her son to manhood, and with whom
she has ever since had a home. She has one
brother living, Washing Crable, who resides in
Lawrence county, Pennsylvania.
BiBter Bradley united with the Free Will
Baptist Church in Brownsville, Penn., whon
quite young, from which she received letters
of membership. She united with the Christian
Church at Buford over twenty-eight years
since, and during that time she has been
faithful member in all her Christian walks.
She took cold while at the funeral of her gran
daughter-in-law, Mrs. William Bradley, on the
4th instant, but had recovered somewhat, and
on Friday night went to bed feeling quite well,
but when her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Sanford
Bradley, called her to breakfast she reoeived
no response. Bhe had fallen asleep quietly
and apparently without a struggle, in whom
she had trusted for over sixty long years.
Elder J. W. Ruble preached her f unsral at
the Christian Church at half past two o'clock
on Babbath afternoon, to a very large and
sympathizing audience, from 2d Timothy, 4th
chapter, (Uh, 7th, and 8th verses, and as we
were passing from the twinkling light of the
grand luminary we quietly laid her body to
rent in the Buford cemetery, to await the morn
whan He who died to save shall bid the myriads
come forth from the sleeping dust, clothed in
immortality, to sing the song that angl
never sang. AtaiENU.
