A Htktrnmt From the Iowa Rrpre
eatatlve or the Anaerlraa Kdaea
tioaal Aid Society Coneeralag the
Corey Boy Cane.
Editor Arous: .
Davenport, Iowa, June, June 21: As
to the case of the boy, John J. Corey of
which the Arovi contained an account,
the circumstances are these: The circnit
court at Muscatine, Judge Waterman
presiding, had appointed Rev. 8. .
Wilcox, of Muscatine, guardian for the
boy who had been neglected by bis father
and bad not as much as been seen by him
for five years; was thus utterly aban
- dotted and only the kindness of an aunt
who made a living by hard labor, gave
blm.a borne. Rev. Wilcox asked me as
state agent of the American Educational
Aid association, to find him a good home.
"raid so, and when Mr W. had satisfied
himself that it was snob, he sent the boy
to me to be taken to his home. In send
ing him Mr. Wilcox by some misunder
standing, almost missed his train and
failed to give him directions how to find
me. Knowing the age of the boy and bis
intelligence and imposing that such direc
tions bad been given I was less careful to
meet him and was about five minutes too
late to meet the train. His sister of
about sixteen of age, who lives with an
other girl In Davenport, started to thke
him over into Illinois, although the boy
bad told ber that be wanted to come to
me as bis guardian had directed him.
I found him with her on the ferry boat
and when I asked the boy to go with me
the. loud talk of the sister gathered a
" crowd about us. They, without reason
ing, began to take ber part and would
not listen to my explanations or look at
my papers. I told them of my residence
in Davenport, and that J. S. Wylie was
president. Dr. Crawford vice president.
Dr. Jennie McCowen secretary and C. S .
Durfee treasurer of our association all
living in Davenport but they would
listen to nothing. Threats were made to
throw me in the river, and this girl that
these men were defending said that she
bad a revolver and would shoot me right
there. This mob, with a professed
Methodist preacher as its assumed leader
and with the assistance of the officers of
the boat landed my ward on the Illinois
shore, and followed the girl along the
streets. I called a policeman, and de
tained the boy until I saw Justice S. F.
Cooke, who issued a writ and set the
bearing of the case the next day at 2
o'clock. I counseled with Hon. E. E.
Cook, our attorney, who referred me to
Messrs. Sweeney & Walker, of your city.
They, with your city marshal, examined
my papers, saw that I was acting under a
commission of an association chartered
by the legislature of Illinois, that the
boy's legally appointed guardian had on
our regular forms assigned him to the as
sociation; also the letters of Mr. Wil
cox, showing that be sent him to me.
they therefore gave me the boy. I wish
to thank Justice Cooke,, Majr Beards
ley, Messrs. Sweeney & Walker, and
your city marshal and the police, for the
considerate way in which they treated
tne case. 1 denounce the mob, and be
ing a Methodist minister myself, I espe
ciauj uenounce tne leilow calling him
sen a AietnoUist preacher.

Prohibition la rennwylvania.
Pennsylvania that is for protection bv
ou.miu is against prohibition by more than
9iisi,iiuu. id no state of the union have
pruuiuiuumsis enierea upon a campaign
for the adoption of the prohibition
amendment to the state constitution with
greater enthusiasm and confidence, and
in no state, not even in Massachusetts,
have they been so overwhelmingly
There was ground for this confidence
in Pennsylvania. Mr. Wanamaker, the
postmaster general, was exerting himself
openly in behalf of the amendment.
Matt Quay, the junior senator of the
state and the senior campaigner of the
republican party, had led the prohibition
ists to believe that be and bis machinery
in the state would be with tbcra. It was
a bargain whereby be averted their oppo
sition to the election of Gov. Beaver,
ijui vvanamakcr has no real strength in
politics and Quay is simply a trader whose
word as a politician isn't eood. When
they will have sufficiently recovered from
their amazement to look about them the
prohibitionists will discover that even
had the politicians kept faith with thm
their proposition would have been beaten

high license law there is in Pennsylvania
a strong regulatory hold upon the liquor
iramc 11 is sumi ient for all useful our
poses. There is is no nonsense or fanat
icism about 1t. Its work is efficient and
salutary. Pennsylvanians, like all other
residents of the union, have seen tnat
prohibition, even as a fundamental law
in certain of the states Maine, Iowa
and Kansas is at best no more than a
local option law. In those localities
within a stale where public opinion fav
ors proniDition, there are no saloons. In
other localities dram shops are openly
'pcrieu. mis is proamnion at best.
Prohibition at its worst encourages a
menu espoinage and fosters a meaner
Hypocrisy. It begets cant, encourages
humbug, and fails of any real reforma
tory work. The sturdy, level-headed
old burghers of i'i nnsjlvania have
wholesome liquor law, and do not pro
pose to take any chances under a pro
bibition, which bas been demonstrated
time and again is inoperative save where
the dram shop would not be tolerated at
What will be the effect of the vote in
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania? The
movement for prohibition is manifestly
cnecaea. will prohibitionists persist?
many or mem are sincere and earnest and
will insist on going forward. But they
will have little to hope for m any state
with a reasonably rigid liquor law. And
they may bavo something to lose. Rhode
Island is considering whether or not it
will retain its prohibition law. In Iowa
since the adoption of prohibition through
the agency of the republican party the
republican majority bas diminished. Last
year It was less than half the majority
given to Garfield. This reaction, attrib
utable In part to dissatisfaction with even
such prohibition as is had in Iowa, may
receive so great an impetus by the posi
tion on the liquor question taken emphat
ically by staid old commonwealths like
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts as seri
ously to militate against republican suc
cess in the Iowa gubernatorial campaign
this year. . P b
Politicians have looked upon prohibi
tion with a wary and uneasy eye. They
win now regara 11 as a decaying cause.

The Ago of Shams.
This is an age of cheap and poor imitations.
There Is scarcely a valuable commercial com
modity that is not imitated with more or 1
success, and the worthless imitation palmed
off upon a publio always ready to be hum
bugged. In clothing, in household furniture,
In groceries, provisions and all manner of
goods and chattels there is more or less sham
and shoddy. Humbugging the public is get
ting to be one of the tine arts. Dishonesty is
apparently a necessity with many people who
cannot keep op their extravagant style of
living without acquisition of money for that
purpose Dy cheating, defrauding and deceiv
This is the age of veneer; every comfort
and pleasure of domestic life is sacrificed for
outeide show. Many people will undergo
many actual privations in order to keep up a
stylish equipage or reside in a stone front
mansion on a fashionable street. These are
the people who buy cheap and adulterated
groceries, who pinch their stomachs, under
mine their health and often go without neces
sary clothing in order to be considered high
toned and "swell.
our Tim-ipai cuiea are ruling up with a
certain class of men who have grown rich
rapidly. Very few of these have acquired
weaitn oy straightforward business methods.
Some have acquired fortunes by lucky specu
lations, some ty the appreciation of real
entato or personal property, but mo6t bv
trickery, fraud and the exercise of superior
greoa ana cunning.
Could the American public know and f ully
realize whut the vile stuff is that it is eating,
drinking, wearing and spending its hard
earned money for there would be little short
of a revolution. Beware of auspiciously
cneap goods, particularly when they are of
leiru uy conierativeiv unknown or irre
sponsible parties. You can take it for grant
ed that something is wrong when any staple
commodity is offered to you for less than the
regular market price. You must bear in
mind that if the practice of selling sham and
shoddy goods is ever suppressed, it must bo
done by concerted action of the country mer
chants. The trade will be supplied with spu
rious articles of every conceivable kind so
long as there is a general demand for them.
The Dark Hunter's Castle.
A ith a genuine feudal independence, the
lako Limmplain duck shooter may claim
that his blind is his castle. It is undoubtedly
the most elaborate affair of the kind in use
among the wild fowlers of the countrv.

thoroughly provisioned, and fitted out to
stand a siege of six weeks' bombardment by
me great army ot southward Hying ducks.
Lot us take a peep at one of these Lake
Charm 'lain blinds.
The bouse part of the blind is very nearly
square, about rive by six feet and five and a
half feet high. It has a sloping roof to shad
rain, a door at the frout end, and a small
window at one side. On the opposite side
there is a board slido which can be opened to
provide air ana tarnish an outlook. Across
the back end the ends being the long sides
of the blind are two luniks or berths, one
over the other.
A wide shelf under the board slide answers
the purpose of a table. Heat and cooking
facilities are f uruUheJ by a small oil stove
standing in ore corner by the door. In the
other corner is the "armory," a rack in which
are placed the guns of the occupant or occu
pants of tho bliod, convenient for immediate
use. A cupboard under the lower berth con
tains the dishes, cooking utensils, ammuni
tion, etc., of ton garrison, while a big chest.
answering also the purpose of a bench, stands
conveniently beneath tho shelf, packed with
provisions and other perishable supplies of
the gunners, bo much for the interior of the
hoitw) part of t he blind. The door opens upon
a platform about three and a half feet wide,
railed all around and heavily bushed with
cedar or pine to such a height that the gnnner
when erect can conveniently shoot over the
wattled boughs. On tho front part of the
platform is a long, trough like pen in which
are conQned live decoys. The entire struc
