Federal Court. Loses NoJTime. The
April term of the federal court In Dav
inport adjourned Tuesday afternoon
after having been In session consid
erable less than a full day. Taken
altogether, the court was in actual ses
sion barely over two horrs during the
entire day. It's all business and no
foliy with Judge Smith McPnerson,
and the attorneys have long ago learn
ed the folly of .endeavoring to bring
eases to trial before this jurist unless
there is real merit to their cause. It
takes Judge McPherson just long
enough.. to. "throw a case out of court
as to convince him that it has no merit
and this is often done iu very short
City Official Burglar's Victim. The
home of Frank Sammons, the assist
ant city electrician, 1204 East Locust
street, Davenport, was entered some
time Tuesday, and a suit of clothes
belonging to Mr. Sammons and a coat
were taken. Mrs. Sammons was away
from home the most of the day, and
it is not known exactly what time the
burglar made his visit. But when he
came he broke in the back door, and
while there were silverware and ar
ticles of value in the house, the visi
tor seemed satisfied with stealing the
blue sergo suit and a single breasted
coat belonging to Mr. Sammons.
Damage Suit on Trial. The $3,000
damage suit of Emily L. Had cliff e vs.
the Tri-City Railway company, was
called to trial in the district court
yesterday morning. Mrs. Radcliffe, in
company with her husband, was rid
ing in the carriage of E.'A. Shaw when
it was struck by a Central park car
near the top of the Brady street hill,
Aug. 15, 190C. AH the occupants were
thrown to the pavement and more or
less injured. Mr. Shaw was the most
seriously injured and brought suit for
$45,000 damages against the street car
company. At the trial of his case the
jury returned a verdict in favor of the
defendant company. At the same time
as Mr. Shaw instituted suit, similar
actions for damages were brought by
Mrs. Shaw, V. L. Radcliffe and his
wife, Emily Radcliffe, who is the plain
tiff in the case now on trial.

As a statesman in Congress he advo
cated the brewing industry as an aid to
agriculture and national temperance:
and upon several occasions he bought
and freighted rum, wine and whiskey
to the brave soldiers of the Revolution.
He himself declared that the juice of the
malt was never' absent from his board.
Thomas Jefferson was a splendid
athlete, a crack shot; and in his prime
at the old Raleigh tavern he delighted
to enjoy his "cakes and ale" or dance
half through the night with the fair
maids of old Virginia.
At eighty-three he died, regretted by
the nation he helped to create. His
deeds and written thoughts absolutely
and irrefutably prove that good malt
beer is not injurious to mind or body.
