Cage indebtedness placed' upon record

288,542, a part of which has been paid.
About one-quarter of the flebt is fouud ia

Dubuque, Linn, Marshall, Polk; PotUKf
wattAmie, Scott and Woodbury, contain
ing respectively the cities of Clinton, Bur
lington.IMbuque, Cedar Rapids, Mar

of the state.
Objects of the Mortgages.
An indebtedness of 3M4,031, or 75.34
per cent, on the whole amount, was re
corded against acres in the teu years.
The indebtedness place on lots was ? 10C,
04,511, or U4 TO per cent, of the total. The
average mortgage for the ten-year period
was ti6.55; for acres, ".152.43; for lots,
tCSG.22. The average life of mortgages,
not allowing for partial payments, is
computed at five years. Personal inquiry
as to the objects of mortgaging real estate
shows that the prominent ones were:
Purchase money, improvem ents, to buy
more land, repay boirowed money, farm
stock, speculation, living expenses and
undescribed debts. '
Total Existing Debt.

quiry were Cass, Crawford, Delaware and

2: per cent, of the total indebtedness of
the state, while their proportion of the
state's population is 1.40. There is an
average indebtedness of ?I04 to one of
population iu the state.
Value of the Statistics.
Concerning this report. Superintendent
Porter says: 'This is, I believe, the first
time a government has ever attempted to
invade tor statistical purposes the realm
of private indebtedness. At present writ
ing it is impossible to estimate the full
'benefits which will be derived from such
an investigation. The employment of a
small army of 2,500 special agents and
clerks to make an abstract of every mort
gage placed on record in every county in
the United States for the last ten years at
tracted attention to the dangers of these
incumbrances; to the enormous burdens
in the way of interest; to the alarming ex
tent to which usury is practiced, and to
the defectiveness of these records in all
parts of the country.
Work or the Special Agent.
"The, agents of the census office have, as
a matter of fact, overhauled the records
in every state and territory. They huVd
traveled on horseback and on foot through
the most sparsely settled districts of our
vast domain in search of mortgages, and
have done their work so industriously and
so thoroughly that we now ha-e on file lu
Washingtjn as a result of their labor the
abstracts of about U,000,00tl mortgages.
Some months before the inquiry was le
gun, congress, and through congress the
public, was put in possession ol the scope of
the plan hdopteii. That plan, with
hardly uny change, has been carried out."
Density of 1'opulation.
Another bulletin issued yeter.luy was
on density of population. Kbode Island
has the most dense population of auy ot
the states 320 to the square mile ot land.
If Illinois were as densely populated it
would contain 17,000,000 population, and
Texas Sj.000,000. The total settled area
in the country, two or more to the mile,
has increased from 1,200,000 miles in
to 1,947,000 miles in luM. The nettled
part of the country is now peopled as fol
lows: Two to six to the square mile,
591,000 miles; six to eighteen to the
mile, 893.000 miles; eighteen to forty-five
to the square mile, 710,001 miles; forty
five to ninety to the square mile, 225,000
miles; above ninety to the square mile,
Illinois and Wisconsin.
All of Illinois is settled, aud none of its
area more sparsely than eighteen to the
square mile, Forty-one thousand square
miles have from eighteen to forty-five
population per mile, and 14,000 miles
from forty-live to ninety. It has no area
more densely populated than ninety per
mile, except in cities wtiich are excluded
from this calculation. Wisconsin, on the
other hand, has 4'H square miles, contain
ing a population of ninety or over, and
ti.000 square miles containing less than
six persons to the mile.

Hungarian family who had gone back

were attacked by a mob. One of tbe
Huns drew a revolver and threatened to

Morcwood murdered. I choose the red flag
lwcuuse it represents the pure blood that

St. Louis, Mo.,"April,E3, At the battle
of Shiloh, Sunday April 6, 1862, Capt
Gilbert J. George, now of St. Louis, was
orderly sergant of company D, Fortieth
Illinois volunteers, of the Union forces.
Tuesday night of April $, 1862, Orderly
Sergeant George, in command of a burial
detail of twelve privates of his company,
buried in the trenches dug on the battle
field William Newby, also a"' private sol
dier of company D, Fortieth Illinois
volunteers. Xine men of that company
had been killed on the bloody field of
Shiloh, and Kewby's body was the third
on the list to be wrapped in blankets and
laid in a soldier's sepulchre, the long and
ghastly trench. He was shot through tbe
head, a musket ball having crushed into
his brain on the left side, just above and
a little in tbe rear of the left ear.
Not Dead, If He Was Ilnried.
Last Sunday Capt. George, who became
a lieutenant at Shiloh, left St. Louis, and
going to a farmhouse near Mill Shoals,
White county, Ills., saw living the Will
iam Kewby whom he had buried on the
battlefield twenty-nine years ago and
positively identified him as Newby, the
"dead come to life." For twenty-nine
' years the old soldier, whose death and
! burial arc duly recorded iu the war de
partment archives at Washington City,
i has been drifting from poorhouse to poor
house and from insane asylum to insane
asylum, a strange and piteous wreok. He
is now safe with his wife and children on
the very farm from which he eulisted in
1S01 at his country's call to arms.
His Memory Tartly Obliterated.
He remembers the farm and some of his
old associates, but has forgotten his wife,
forgotten the fact of his marriage, for
gotten his children. His wife, hurrying
from a son's home in Texas, arrived at the
old farmhouse only Tuesday. She saw
her dead husband come back to life again,
but he looked ber iu the face and said
"I was never married. I have no wife. I
have no children. But I am William
New by, and I was raised on this farm."
Stranger still, the William Newby who
enlisted in company D, Fortieth Illinois,
in August, Wil, was a fair-haired and
blue-eyed man, while the William Kewby
who returns from the grave in 1891 is a
man with black eyes and with black hair,
streaked heavily with gray.
The Identification Complete.
Yet, by certain marks on his person and
by the most searching tests to which he
has been put, the man is identified as the
same William Xewby. Seven of his
?ormer comrades of Company D, all of
whom were in the burying detail that
placed his body in the trench, swear that
lie is the man tbey knew and buried. His
own mother swears that he is her son,
William Newby. He was admitted to the
White county poorhouse eighteen
months ago, and gave his name. Mem
lrs of the family and others visited him
und recognized him. Finally his mother
asked that he be taken to his father's
grave, and he was led there.

"This is my father's grave," he an
nounced to them quietly. "I built that
vault myself." And he told of where he
had Quarried the sandstone, and even
gave the names of the two oxen that had
hauled the stone to the grave. Still be
maintained that he was not married nor
ever had been. On the side of his

shot at Shiloh, Capt. George

Repeal of the Conspiracy Law.
Springfield, April 23. The farmers
of the legislature Lave resolved,
in view of the alleged neglect of farm in
terests by the solons, that hereafter they
wi.l object to the consideration of any
subject out of the regular order, and on
this issue they won their first Cght yes
terlay In the house by defeating a
prt position to suspend the rule3 and take
up the bill to protect trade union labels
ami emblems. The vote was 87 to 44
in the affir.native, but two-thirds was
necessary. Then the compulsory school
law was taken up. The Democratic bill
maces no provision for the teaching of
English iu private and parochial schools.
O'Connell moved an amendment making
it n ;cessary that reading and writing shall
be i aught iu English, and the debate
on the question occupied all day. Further
consideration was postponed' until the
Australian ballot bill shull have been
K pealing: the Mcrritt Conspiracy act.
The senate passed tbe bill repealing the
Meiritt conspiracy law, all the Democrats
and seven Keonblicans Bassett, Chap
mat , Fuller, Knopf, Lehman, MacMillan
and Zearing voting for the repeal, the
othtr Republicans not voting. The
general appropriation bill was also passed
and all the other appropriations advanced
to tecond reading. Dills were intro
