SOME PLEASING FACTS.
The Mining Interests of Mr. Cable
and His Employes.
What Iowa Journal lias to May He
carding Thrat Other Matters of la
tereat Id Connection Therewith.
The Muscatine Nem-Trihune. in
speaking of the mining town of Cable,
among other things says:
Here on Camp Creek, near the north
east corner of Mercer county, is located
the town of Cable, with iU 1.100 popula
tion, named in honor of P. L, and R. R.
Cable, who in 1863 opened and operated
the coal mines in Coal Valley near this
place, and who subsequently discovered
and developed rich and extensive coal
fields in this vicinity, and built a line of
railroad from Rock Island to carry to the
world the product of their miaes. Any
one having widely observed the char
acter and condition of the towns and the
people of other mining places, will no
tice here a happy contrast in the material
make-up of Cable and its community,
traceable, perhaps, to a system of justice
and liberality, inaugurated by the Ca
bles, in the building and running of their
road, and the development and manage
ment of their mines, and as a reward for
which they have bad neither strikes nor
lockouts in either of their enterprises un
der tbe old regime nor during
the more modern management of Ben T.
Cable, (the present democratic candidate
for congress) who for liberalitv toward
the working men and sympathy in their
behalf appears to be a "chip off the old
block." Parenthetically, and perhaps
without political prejudice, it might here
he remarked, that how to elect or beat
Ben Cable, constitute the principal topi
cal conversation on this side at present.
Our republican brethren point with pride
to the fact that his father presented one
or two thousand dollars to tbe town of
Rock Island and its charitable institutions
and several thousand tons of coal to its
poor people, and claim because bit father
did tbis Ben ought to be defeated. The
democrats claim that while he has a mi -lion
or so of his dad's dollars, he has
earned a good many of bis own that it
is no great crime to keep tlH-in in circula
tion; that Ben will be the next congress
man; that be will represent and respect
tbe cause of the N boring people in con
gress as be has done outside that he is
no cheaD sucker whom the corporations
can control with their cash, and thus the
warfr wages, with tbe chances in favor
of the Cable cause.
Tbe principal mine, the CabK emplovs
at present 275 miners, while during the
ousy season .iiiO or more are required.
The proprietors from the start investigat
ed the labor problem diligently, and after
a rew years experience solved the prob
lem, so far as they were immediately con
cerned, in a sort of cooperative way, based
upon the showing of their books, which
indicated that one-third tbe value of tbe
entire product, which last year was about
BUU.OLO tons, equalled tbe cost of original
investment, plant and repairs, one-third
the cost of hauling and marketing and
one-third an equitable allowance for its
mining. On Uub ba-is 'he hiinrrs hae
been paid, this allowance bing regulited
,J the price of coal in Rock Island, and
they receive pay for all tbe cnul they
mine, hence are not beaten out ot their
nut coal and slack they mine, as is the
general rule elsewhere. They own their
homes, are sober, intelligent and indus
ous people and appear to be happy and
A Moldier'n Wound.
Not being a professional humorist, the
editor ot the Union makes some fair at
tempts in that direction perhaps uncon
sciously. Our esteemed contemporary
says that Thomas Campbell, the republic
can nominee for county treasurer, had
his army service ended by being shot in
one of his legs; or, in other wor.ls, his
service was ended before it began. It
speaks, too, of "his brief but altogether
honorable war record." Those who do
not know the facts as published in the
A rocs Thursday, might be apt to think
that Mr. Campbell bad been leading con
quering armies in the field and tbat a
stray bullet had cut short his warlike ca
reer and consequent services to his coun
try; or tbat he might have acted in a more
humble captioitj and barely escaped with
his life after undergoing the experience
of the light brigade at Balaklava. A
widow in one of Dickens' novels was
never tired of telling about her husband
that was killed in the Peruvian mines,
when in fact he had been knocked on the
head with a quart pot in an ale house cel
lar. Ho with Mr. Campbell. The less
said about bis "war record" the better for
himself. If he has any other special
claims for recognition he should dwell
upon them and leave his sanguinary mil
itary exploits for future generations to
ponder over. The people of the present
age are too near to tbe facts. It was not
necessary in order to make a war record
to go to Chicago and have his leg shattered
by the accidental discharge of a gun in the
hands of a man who was cleaning it. The
same kind of an accident could have oc
curred anywhere else and the wound
have taken just as long to heal, so that it
is not becoming in Mr. Campbell nor his
friends to point with pride to his warlike
prowess coupled with a glorious service.
But the humor of the Union is apparent
when it warns tbe Argus against tbe
danger of "mocking at a soldier's
Jerry- Itonhle If apiilnrss.
The Chicago Eeening Pont has tbe fol
lowing concerning the double happiness
tbat has come to rion. Jerry n. Murphy:
We beg to tender the compliments of
the season to Hon. Jeremiah Uennepin
Murphy, of Ditvenport, and to express
our fondest hope that no cruel blast of
fortune may ever mar the corners of his
Jove-like beard. It has been a jolly sea
son for the bewhiskered statesman of the
corn palace state. He has seen the darl
ing hopes of his lifetime blossom into an
appropriation of $ 5110,000 for the Hen
nepin canal. It is not all he asked, but
it is much wlio says a half a million
isn't much? Nor is this the full measure
of Mr. Murphy's happiness. The same
season which brings to him the fruition
of his Hennepin hope has also brought to
him a wife. The successful statesman is
likewise a happy bridegroom. We are
not advised what standard of human
happiness obtains in Iowa, but it must he

THEY OWN THE EARTH. I
Kepnbllraan Claiming Kverythlaa;
Userat and Denying Their Own
One would think by listening to the
republicans in this vicinity that they were
the very salt of the earth and possessed
a divine right to claim all the virtues as
their own. They are not content to be
looked upon as ordinary mortals and con
sequently they are often looked upon as
extraordinary. Not tbe quiet, sensible
people amongst them are to be censured,
but everyone who goes around with his
mouth on exhibition. He can't keep it
shut as a rule and while it is open it be
comes unmanageable. The man who
owns the mouth is always on good terms
with himself even if the majority of peo
ple despise him.
Ever since the president signed the
river and harbor bill these talking ma
chines have been going at all times. It
was they who had worked for this result,
for lol these many years; it was they who
managed it in congress and got it finally
passed, and it was they who hurried up
the president to. attach his .signature.
But tbe handicraft of these men is not
seen in the great accomplishment.
Some men devoted mote attention to tbe
matter than others, but it was uot be -cause
they were democrats or republis
cans. Every citizen had an rqual share
in the success of the enterprise; every
citizen took an equal pride in its ad
vancement. This must be conceded, and
all this blatant nonsense about it being a
republican achievement is the silliest
twaddle, believed in by no one. and ut
tered by no one except the aforesaid
gentlemen with tbe uncontrollable or
gans. That Mr. Oest should be given any
special prominence in the matter H is
hard to understand. He happened to be
in congress when it passed. That's all
Can anyone point out the work he ever
did in its behalf more than any other citi
zen has performed? The services of Mr.
Oest in this matter will not stand too
much airing. They bad better be cov
ered with the mantle of charity. His la
bors on the Hennepin canal may bi
looked upon as the veriest shade o
a shadow of an imagination.
These remarks are partly induced by
the observation of Saturday night and
the report of tbe proceedings in Satur
day's Union. Its editor's moral obliquity
of vision always prevents an impartial re
port or a truthful judgment. He would
endeavor to make believe that he was
surprised at democrats for subscribing to
the amusement fund for the evening, and
then he weaves in a sentiment about
Gest's faithful work and friendly interest.'
Rah! Let us have sometbiu manly and
honest about Mr. Gest and not this idiotic
gush. The transparency at tbe Odd
Fellows hall was as silly as the action of
those who put it there, let it be done at
the instance of an architect or a lawyer,
or anyone else. It read: "A republican
congress for improvements what's the
matter with Gest?" It was lacking in
sense, in truth, in application and was
altogether out of place upon such an oc
casion. The Hennepin canal is not a part of
the government policy. The fat-witted
republicans should take this into consid
eration, and consult with their wiser
brethren before making an exhibition of
Some one who airs his ideas through
the Union that office being the estab
lished clearing house for all tbe half
witted for an exchange of opinions
works himself into a pathetic mood and
calls aloud for sympathy because be
would make believe that tbe Welsh peo
ple are insulted by being truthfully re
minded that tbe tin miners in Wales are
obliged to work for starvation wages. Of
course, the one who pretends to fee! hurt
is either silly or ignorant, or both. What
baa filled this country with people of all
nationalities but tbe eagerness to better
their condition? Does the Irishman feel
insulted because he is told tbat those be
left behind him are poor; that they are
abjectly treated by an alien power; that
many of them are struggling for a miser
able existence; and to get rid of all this
want and misery and bumilation they left
a land that is ever dear to better their
condition in a newer world? Does tbe
German feel insulted because he is told
that here he can find better opportunities
for his thrift and energy and intelligence
than he could by remaining in the land of
his fathers? Does the Swede feel in
sulted because he is told that bis labor
will be better remunerated here than in
the country which he has left? Does any
nationality feel insulted can it feel in
sulted because it is reminded of these
facts? Certainly no one does, unless he
would wish to make it appear tbat pover
ty did not exist in tbe land of bis birth,
and that he himself was simply in this
ountry for rec reation and amusement.

Capt. Joseph W. Brackett, of this city,
recently attended a soldiers' reunion at
Brooklyn. Schuyler county, and while
there it seems, took occasion to refute
certain statements made regarding Ben
T. Cable by some of Gest's henchmen.
Now the republican papers in that part of
the district are charging Capt. Brackett
with being a dyed-in theswool democrat
and tbat be palmed himself off as a re
publican to make his assertions more ef
fective. Everybody who knows Cajt.
Bracket; knows that he is not now a dem
ocrat nor never was. He is a republican,
and ajirominent memherof theG. A. R.,
but is nevertheless, like hundreds of his
comrades, supporting Ben T. Cable for

The Defaulting anhler of Deere
Co.'n Works Thinks Jmf tlee Was not
Meted Oat to Him Appreciation of
the ttherlfl's Kindness.
Chaa. W. Lofgreen.late cashier in Deere
& Co.'s works at Moline, now under sen
tence of a year in the penitentiary, has
written the Moline Dispatch a letter, in
which he says:
I deem it a duty I owe ntt only mvself
and numerous friends, but more particu
larly an honest father, a leving mother,
and more than worthy and loving sisters,
to vindicate in part a name and character
once above reproach bir, now, alas,
blackened with dishonor through the de
ceit anfl uncharltableness of a certain
person and the fanaticism rf a justice of
the peace who backs his knowledge of
law in bigotry, untempered with charily,
on the supposition that an honest and
manly acknowledgement of my conduct
for the past year, while employed by
Deere & Co., would in part mitigate an
extreme penaltv of the law. I, therefore.
on July 9, 1890, prior to my arrest,
approached Mr. Simmon cashier and
stated my case to him. requesting him to
place tho matter before Deere & Co.
When called before the directors I gave
them a succinct account of all moneys I
appropriated to my own ue, and it had
been and was my intention to make resti
tution for the same had not the op.
portunity been frustratid by the
company appointing another as payee.
It seems that while I was closely
questioned by the directors they had
obtained from me certain information
not pertaning to their matter, and at the
same interview they had summoned the
marshal to arrest me immtdiately. At
ny preliminary hearing, through coun
sel, I waived examination and the mono
maniac magistrate placed my bail at $3.
5iK). Mr. Meese strenuously objected to
such excessive bail as contrary to the con
stitution of the United States, which pro
vides that excessive hail shall not be re
quired. Iu conclusion Lofgreen tl us expresses
himself to his friends:
To those friends who wh.n darkness
curtained my pathway were ever ready to
cover me with their mantle of charity. I
find my poor thanks are inadequate toex
press tbe deep obligation I f we them for
the many words of good will and acts of
kindness which they have manifested
toward me while incarcerated in jtii. Let
it suftlce. however, that thro igb the help
of the everlasting Father I -will bear my
imprisonment with resignation and strive
for a grander and better life io the future.
To Mr. Silvia, sheriff, and bis family I
return sincere thanks for the many obli
gations I have received at their hands.

Master in Chancery Henry Ward, of
Whiteside county, has been taking evi
dence in this city for several days in the
celebrated suit, brought by the attorney
general against C. J. Root, of the Modern
i Woodmen of America, growing out of
the trouble in that organization last year.
The testimony of Mrs. Eva Owens whs
among the most important. She is tbe
wife of Alfred E. Owens, the printer, and
knew of an arrangement letween her
husband and Root by whic'i the latter
was to get a commission on the printing
done for the society. The Brrnum death
afTnir was also talked over anil the papers
left with Oivens. Then matters became
warm and Owens went to South America,
where he now is. It appea-a tbat Mrs
Owens was to be supported from money
furnished through an agency. Ii did not
come very fas', and she came to Chicago
Becoming hard up.she went in a furniture
dealer named Shaw, on Cottage Grovt
avenue, stored her furniture and asked
bim to keep for ber some valt able papers
left by her husband. Afterwards, before
be would give them up, he consulted an
attorney. W. C. Grobe, of Lyons, Iowa,
the attorney for Root, also wanted the
papers, and Shaw gave them up for f2iH
Tbe papers turned out to be the alleged
proof of death and other forged docu
ments. A couoterfeir seal was also dis
covered. Various letters wete shown in
evidence written by Attorney Grohe to
Mrs. Owens, tending to show that he was
warning ber to keep her husband away so
as to prevent bis testifying. All the evi
dence for the plaintiff has bei;n offered,
and it is not known yet whither there
will be any defense.

many years the doctors pronnunced it a

with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to be a
