THE CITY'S CONTEST CASE.
The Mlt intti It la a a Keialt f th
Froerrdlnsa Thaa Kar Better
hap Thaa Bfor.
The Union persist! in misrepresenting
the status of the mayoralty contest case
as a result of the attention it has thus far
received in the county court. Uf a truth
the case occupies a more advantageous
position than it did before. The facts
are simple and readily conceived.
The jurisdiction of the county court is
made up of its probate powers and ils
1 tw power, and the terms of court al
which these powers are exercised are
termed probate terms and law terms re
spertively. Ils power to hear and deter
mine ces of contested elections not be
ing a matter of probate as generally un
derstood, anil being specially conferred by
the provision of the election law, the
case was brought to a Uw term of said
court under a section of the statute resu
lting the practice of that court, wbich
provides that "process in cases, cogniza
ble at the Uw terms of the county court
shall be made returnable to the law
terms." The motion to quash the writ
was on the ground that it ehould have
been made returnable to a probate term
instead of a law term. The court held
that its jurisdiction in the case could be
exercised at any of its terms whether law
or probate, and as a probate term was tbe
first to occur after the date of the writ,
it should have been issued to that term.
It -therefore, quhrd the writ, and or
dered an alias writ to be issued return
able at the August term.
The point is purely technical and can
have no effect on the status of the case
wnich is fixed by the act of filing the pe
tition or statement to contest. If the I
hearing were confined to the law terms.it
could be tried only at a term held in
March, July or November. Under the
ruling of the court the case is triable at
any term and will be called up monthly
until it is disposed of.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that in by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by aa inflamed con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condN
tion of the mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that we can not cure by taking Hall's

London, July l: The Irish leaders are in
ft "state of miii.r over a decision of the Par
nell commission yesterday, by which the
I'arnoll eounl were balked iu an attempt to
bring the tiooks of the Loyal and Patriotic
Union, a Conservative lrwh association, into
court. The contention of the 1'arnest coun
sel was that the Union bad beeu the origin
at ir of tb articles on "Parnelium and
Crime," and ih it the Union had lued I'igott
to concoct ihe plan. Mr. Houston, Secre
tary of the Loyal and Patriotic Uuiou, bad
just been on the witness stand, and testified
that The Tunes' articles were an elaboration
of Tarn.tll Unmasked." which was compiled
by 1'ipitt, and that he (Houston) bad re
ceived M for the article. Hu had no ob-J.K-tion
to producing the books of the Union
id court, but did not proose that they
should be examined by political opponents.
The Tarnell View or It.
Counsel for I'arucll said the court was un
der obligations to inquire into the origin and
growth of the charges aninst the Parnell
itex, while tWbter, for The Tims, insisted
that the. hooks were only wantd to (five the
P.inieUites lre tange lnt other xlitical af
fairs. The ciirt decided that tht books need
hot tie pmdiiced, the ground being taken that
the Patrio ic Union was not a party to this
case in any s -use. Thereupon Russell said be
desired an opportunity to consult with his
rinrivil as t his position and the conunis
U n Mj .ui nel until Tunsilay.
An Indignation Meeting Held. BS3
Aft T the adjournment of the commission
a meeting whs held at the chambers of Sir
Charles Russell, at which the leading mem
bers of the Irish party and their counsel he
fore the commission were present. The
greatest indignation was expressed by all at
Judge Hannen's ruling iu excluding the
books of the Ioyal and Patriotic Union,
which Sir Charles Russell ttoiu;UsJ place in
evidence. Parnell and lavitt Vxce present
at the meeting, and Parnell expressed bis de
termination to personally resent this alleged
injustice o:t the part of Judge Hannen. It
was determined that the protest of the Irish
party against the rulm should take some
practical shape, and it was suggested that all
th ) counsel for the defense bo instructed to
withdraw from Hie contest forthwith.
How They Wilt Make the Protott.
In this way only, it was argued, could the
Irishmen involved in the charges before the
comnn-sion, show to the world that U.ey
were convinced that they could not get jus
tice at the bands of this "one-sided commis
sion." The discussion was entirely upon the
question whether all the Parnellite counsel
or S.r Charles Russell alone should with
draw from the case, most of those present
favoring the Later course. No decision was
reached, but Tt is quite likely that Sir
Charles only will withdraw and he will do so
next Tuesday, at the same time statiug to
the court bis reasons for so doing.
Mrs. Alexander Snlllvam In Court.
While the commission was in session a lady
approached the court, apparently without
the knowledge of the counsel on either side,
and explained that she was the Murgaret
Sullivan who was said to have traveled from
Paris to London in the company of L"Caron.
Hb came there, she said, to deny this state
ment, wbich she did with every manifesta
tion of indignation. The woman who did
come with Lt-Caron on that trip, ste said,
was an American lady, and did not resemble
her in the least.

little row bet worn Germany and Switzerland
regarding exiled Socialists, and their proba
able emigration to this country if it gets too
hot for them on the continent, it is interest
ing to note that, while Englishmen, as a
rule, are as pronounced as ever in their de
te.tation of Socialists, they are drifting
every day deeier and deeier into Socialism.
While deriding tbe upholders of the theory,
tiey are embracing with whle-souied enthu
siasm the theory itself. And this is going
on with tbe actual approval of politicians

regarding tbe announcement that the Irish
pirlianientary p-irty will from a Tenants'

comes up iu court as tbe result of an eviction
the landlords each subscribe toward a fund

IxtMto.i, July 13. Every mail from Aus
tralia now brings letters bearing besides
tbe regular Australian postage stamp an
other of two or three times the size, with
the queen's familiar features engraved
thereon. This second stamp doesn't help to
bring the letter over the seas at all, nor does
it serve any other useful purpose than to
emphasize the protests of loyalists in Aus
tralia, who became indignant at the recent
action of the Australian postal authorities in
substituting on the colonial stamjis emus,
kangaroo and other' local animals for the
features of their buloved queen. They are
bound to have tbe queens face stamped on
their letters at any cost, and apjnar to have
provided stamps for this purpose.

trouble. Rumors prevalent on 'change for
several days concerning the firm's stability
assumed deflt ite form yesterday morning.
Queer stories have been afloat for some
time past regarding the associated elevators
and Sherman Bros. & Co. Complaints are
said to have coma from buyer and seller, of
shortages in grain taken from all these
elevators, and not only this, but the serious
charge of mil ed grain has also been made
against them. One large firm charges that
tbeur wheat stored in the elevators has been
depreciated to 75 cents per bushel.
Mixed Rejected with No. 1.
Another ctaau cited where an inspector
discovered th it a quantity of old No. 1 hard
bad been bad y mixed. An investigation is
said to have ravealed a small spout connected
with a bin and running into the delivery
spout, throng wbich tbe rejected wheat was
mixed with the cheioa hard. Tbe rumors
further allege that the checks of the firm
have not been honored at the American Ex
change bank, and that certain warehouse re
ceipts are out for which there is no grain in
store. It wss learned from a trustworthy
source that a criminal warrant has been is

Tbe report of a warrant for the arrest of
Mr. Sherman was denied at police headquar
ters last nigbt. Mr. E. C Hawkes, who owns
a large inters t in the International elevator,
said the matU r was under investigation, and
the charge of grain receipts with no grain in
store was pn.be.bly true, the shortage being
possibly as much as t'200,0.10. Mr. Hawkes
said in com lusion "No one will lose any
thing except tbe elevator proprietors. Mr.
Sherman has -noney invested in tbe elevator,
and so has bis father. It would seem strange
indeed if he b is jeopardized his business and
other prospect s by doing anything that will
bring punish nent to him." It Is not be
lieved that tho business men interested in the
elevators have been cognizant of tbe crook

St. Paul, July 12. Nearly every portion
of tbe northwestern wheat belt has been vie
itod with rain during the last ten days, the
form of precipitation varying from light
showers to'heavy downpours. Tbe result is
an improvement in the appearance and pros
pects of the wheat crop all along the line, ex
cept where it was so thoroughly burned out
by drought or so far advanced in growth as
to be incauble of resuscitation. The rains
have lcen mainly local in character, but tbe
local areas were large. Some small sections
have been missed, others are In need of still
more moisture than they received, but, as
stated, the net benefit to the crop has been
Hot Weather Iid Little Harm.
The hot weather of last week was confined
mitinly to southern Minnesota and southern
Dakota, and even there did little if any
harm, for it did not last long, and was fol
lowed by the refreshing rains and cool
weather. In the northern section meantime
the temperature was comparatively low and
favorable to the growing grain. There were
heavy dews at night also, and those were
highly In nelli iaL In southern Minnesota
ami Dakota the wheat is fast approaching
niaturit, while the harvest of other small
grains hits beeu begun In scattered localities,
and si Km will be general.
Condition of Northern Wheat.
The northern wheat is now quite generally
headtsl out, but is very uneven, the early
sown being well advanced, while the second
sowing on tracts that were blown out by the
wind is at loast a month behind the first
sown, and the late sown wheat iu general
was kept back very much by the dry
weather. This may lie regarded as an unfa
vorable conditio;), for in some localities it ap
plies to field as well as to areas. Tbe stalks
are short, but are beading out in a most
promising way, and crop sages are fond of
remarking that in all previous years when
the stem was short tt.e yield was unexpect
edly heavy. As to tho quality of the sea
son's wheat there is no question that, if fa
vorable conditions continue, until harvest
time, it will le very far suierior to lust

Report loaned by the State Hoard of Agri

port issued by the state board of agricul
ture yesterday shows that tbe condition of
meadows has not improved since May 1, and
the present indications are that there will be

northern portion bettor than usual at this
The Yield of Potatoes.
The area devoted to Irish potatoes this
year is a fraction less than in 1S-W. The condi
tion of the crop is excellent, and should noth
ing occur to injure the plants a full average
yield per acre may be expected. In the
northern iart of the state the present indica
tion is for more than an average yield in
nearly all the counties. In the central part
an average, or better yield, but in the south
ern portion the yield promises little more
than an average.
Other Crops mud Live Stock.
In tht thirty counties from which reports
on tobacco were received the area is 11 per
cent smaller than m 1SS8. Tbe outlook is
not promising for more than an average
yield per acre. The area in Hungarian and
millet for the state is but Wi per cent as
compared with a year ago. The
condition of young live stock through
out the state is encouraging. Tne number
of pigs in the state as compared with last
year is !ci per cent, and the general condi
tion is c-wd. The numler of lambs has de-cream-d

RAISING TOO MUCH HAY.
Western Farmers ;iven Some Advice as
to Its Quality.
Fiikt Ihhm.k, la., July 1:'.. D. A. Kent,
secretary of the Iowa Hay ShipM-rs' asso
ciation, has issued a circular to western hay
raisers, in nhiebbe says that, according to
all report, there is a very heavy growth of
timothy and prairie wherever these grasses
are grown for the market The New Eng
land and middle Atlantic states have very
heavy crops of timothy, which mill cut off
eastern shipments for next year, and require
the western crop to be consumed largely in
the western markets.
The Kind to Put I'p.
The advice of eastern receivers and con
sumers of bay to the hay men of the west to
put up all they can iscondemned, it being the
obvious purjxise to make hay cheap for the
consumer by a large crop. If farmers and
Hhipiei-s will consult their best interests,
instead of putting up a great gorge of hay,
like the crop of last year, they will put np a
few tons of first-class hay. There is more
profit in ten tons of fancy hay than in thirty
tons or poor grades.

Dks MoiNrs, la., July" 13. Leclaire is a
river town, twelve miles north of Daven
port, noted for the numbjr of steamboat and
raftmen who live there. It is agitated by a
sweeping charge made by Rev. Monroe
Drew, a Presbyterian miuister, from the
pulpit last Sunday night, to the effect that a
virtuous woman between the ages ot 1G and
23 years could not be found in the place. The
pastor is quite a young man. . He came from
Chicago four months ago and bas been
preaching to growing congregations. He
was sensational in his way of puttiug gospel
truth and many were drawn to his service
out of curiosity.
He Kalses a Storm.
Last Sunday night he was particularly se
vere, saying that immorality had captured
tbe town. He stated in all seriousness that
he had been told a woman of honor did not
live in Leclaire. At theend of his service the
young preacher was surrounded by his bear
ers, who made violent protests against such
language. 1 be next day he was waited on
by thirty young women and a public retrac
tion demanded. Mr. Drew offered to take
back his words privately and to apologize to
his callers, but they would have none of it
Called a Town Meeting;.
Tbe next stop was the calling of a mass-
meeting, which was held Thursday night in
tbe largest hall in the town. More than 400
indignant men and women attended. They

said be left the state and went over into Illi-:
nois, fearing personal injury. The meeting
organized by calling a justice of the peace.

the chair. Resolutions were adopted express
big indignation at tbe statement made from
the pulpit, and asserting confidence i tbe
character of the yonng women of the place.
Tar and Feathers Talked On.
The meeting demanded of the trustees of
the church the immediate discharge of Rev.
Mr. Drew. All Presbyterian churches were
warned not to have anything to do with
Parson Drew. Mutterings aUut tar and
feathers are often heard, and some of the
young women declare that .they will not let
the matter drop until public retraction b
made, coupled with an abject apology aud a
promise not to enter the pulpit again.
