Mis3 Osterman is 1C years of age
anrl a clerk at McCabe & Co.'s btore.
Miss Osterman swore a warraot in the
court of Magistrate G. A. Johnson this
morning for the arrest of Emery,
charging him with slandering her char
acter. Emery came into court, but as he
was not ready for a hearing, there was
a continuance until Tuesday morning
next at I o'clock. Emery furnished
$30 security for an appearance.
The trouble, it appears, grew out of
the losing of a pocketbook. containing
$2", by .Mrs. Emery, wife of the defend
ant, who, it is said, told her husband
that she had lost, the purse while trad
ing in McCabe's store, and that Miss
Osterman waited on her.

It is alleged that Mrs. Emery charg
ed Miss overman with finding and
keeping the pocketbook. Emery later
went to McCabe's store and was ap
proached by Miss Osterman, who in
tended to wait on him. She claims
that he insulted her and accused her
of having taken his wife's pocketbook.
Miss Osterman denied the charge
and offered to allow a search of her
belongings to satisfy him of her inno
cence. No search was made, and the
matter, it seems, was dropped until
last Saturday, when, it is s-aid, Emery
again went into the store and reitera
ted his accusations.

REV. HASKELL HAS
QUIT ONCE MORE
Former Moline Preacher Announces at
Fresno, Cal., that He is to Enter
Upon a Business Career.
Rev. Wesley Haskell has again re
signed pastoral work, this time at
Fresno, Cal., and anounces once more
that he will enter upon a business
career. The Loss Angeles Republican
has the following:
"Rev. Wesley Haskell, for a year pas
tor of the First Unitarian church of
Fresno, handed his resignation to the
trustees of the church Sunday evening.
The clergyman will take up work in
the business world.
"The resignation comes at the end of
a successful year's pastorate here.
When Rev. Haskell took up the work
of the Unitarian church here the at
fairs of the church were in somewhat
of an unstable state. With telling en
ergy and faithfulness the clergyman
began his duties, and now has the sat
isfaction of knowing that the church is
on a sound basis. This has come about
mostly through his efforts and inspira
tion. He has shown himself to be a
good pastor and an able preacher. His
resignation is as follows:
"To the Trustees of the First Uni
tarian Church of Fresno, Cal.
Gentlemen: Some time ago I sub
mitted to you my resignation as pastor
of the First Unitarian church of Fres
no. Our organization has been per
fected and the future stability of the
liberal movement in Fresno seemed
assured accordingly I felt at liberty
to go. However, after further and mu
tual consideration, it appeared impos
sible that I should leave at this time,
and my resignation was withdrawn.
But now the season is about to end,
and just before the summer vacation,
I beg of you to accept my resignation,
to take effect at once. Permit me to
say that it has seldom been my good
fortune to meet a more intelligent, pro
gressive and sympathetic people. It
would be hard indeed to find a com
munity more cordially inclined toward
our Unitarian gospel the essential
message of the great genius of Galilee.
"Thanking you for the cordiality
with which you have received me and
the hearty good fellowship which has
characterized our work together from
the beginning, I am, gentlemen,

The steamer Winona, plying be
tween Clinton and the trl-cMes, will
probably go into service down south
as soon as the season up here closes,
which will be about the middle of No
vember. On the opening of the season
here next spring she will resume her
regular run in these waters.
