THE LAST OF TOMALLEY.
The 82,000 Suit Against The Ar
gus Goes by Default .
The Kilt of Complaint not Forthcoming In
Time for the Approaching Term
What Will be the Excuse Now?
The la9t day or service for the Septem
ber term of court is now passed, and yet
no bill of complaint has been filed by the
great and only Searle in his great and
only tomailey Buit against Thk Argus
The suit has now gone by default in two
terms of court, which consigns it to ob
livion. As stated at the time, it was a
fi rat-class bluff brought by irresponsible
people without ground or cause, or inves
tigation upon the part or the attorney
undertaking the case. The Argus as a
part of its mission looked into the apart
ments where human food was prepared,
and in a careful and unbiased manner
Investigated the methods observed in the
preparation of such foods. It found
the establishment cond ucted by people
who were strangersjin the city, and over
whose business the law had no imme
diate control, whose quarters were loath
some and filthy and who, nevertheless,
were daily peddling hbnutthe streets the
articles of food ibey prep ired and sell
ing them. The Argus publisaed the re
sults of its investigation for the benefit
of the people. The individual who con
ducted the tomally j lint took offense at
the exposure and attcr appealing in vain
to other attorneys to take his damage
suit against The Argus, called on
S. W. Searle and that gen
tleman, without looking into the
merits of the case became the itinerant's
counsel and champion. He at once filed
a precipe for a S3. 000 damage suit. This
paper haying acted upon the results of
thorough investigation, and knowing
from Searle's own lips that he had not
looked into the matter at all, even went
further, and revealed a state of affairs in
the di7e of Tomailey & Co. more revolt
ing in its details than had been the orig
in 1 revelation.
Searle failed to file his bill of com
plaint for the May term of court, and
when the case was called for default he
entered the excuse that he had not ob
tained service. Since then, however,
he has had ample opportunity as indeed
he bad prior to the May term
to get the much desired service, but he
has not taken ad van tags of Lis chances,
and Ihj docket for the September term
will see the case no further advanced
than it has been, except that the tomailey
attorney will be obliged to enter his or
der of dismissal.
The fizzle of the case is a positive vin
diction of Tns AKecs.aud also shows the
disadvantage of attorneys under
taking suits without satisfying
themselves of the ground and
cause of action. Searle's more manly
course would have been to have dis
missed the case long ago, at least after
the Sight of his clients, instead of pros
longing it in the courts as be has done,
until forced to abandon it.
The September docket in the circuit
court will contain in all 243 cases, of
which 94 are on the law side and 146 in
chancery. In the latter 36 are cases of
which 19 are divorce suits.
The only real novelty that will appear
at the Harper theatre this season is Mrs.
Gen. Tom Thumb's wonderful Lilipu

performances on Friday, Sept. 2, cven
at 8 and a grand family matinee at 3 p.

of Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb, the most
noted little lady that ever lived.
When holding .her public leveeB, the
countess wears upon her person no less
taan $50,000 worth of diamonds and
jewels. Her little form is fairly ablaze
with the costly brilliants. The majority
of the jewels were presented to her by
the sovereigns and nobility of the old
world, before whom she had the honor of
appearing. Although of such tiny form,
the countess' dressmakers' and milliners'
bill exceeds that of almost any lady in
the land . A number of her exhibition
dresses were made by Worth, the famous
Parisian. The New York Sun in speaking
of her says: "Her dresses are magnificent,
being clothed at the rate of $2,000 per
outfit, and sparkling with jewels and

The D ivenport Democrat recalls that
August 27. 1873. 19 yebn ago, Saturday,
Abram Stoner came to Davenport frcm
a point in the interior of Iowa to take a
train for anothtr city. While at the Bur
tis house, now the Kimball, he was taken
sicb . An express man named Reed was
engaged to transfer him at once to to
Mercy hospital, for it was seen that his
disorder was not of an ordinary kind.
August 29, 19 years ago today both the
men died. Reed, the ex pressman, a few
hours before the man he had hauled to
the hospital. "This," says the Democrat
'wb8 Davenport's first visitation of the
cholera in that memorable year
during which we had here 492
cases and 85 deaths. This is a
sad anniversary . After the attack suf
fered by Mr. Stoner it was a week before
any more cases developed. Then three
children and a woman were removed to
the hospital. One of the children died.
They came from the same neighborhood.
Other cases followed. They multiplied
alarmingly, and deaths followed in close
succession. For a few days there was
almost a crowding of the cemeteries.
Then came a change in the weather and
the scourge was over."
The Democrat lays the trouble in thoee
days to an unprotected sewer on Iowa
street, and sounds the following note of
The way to fight the cholera is to give
it no ground to stand upon. It invari
ably fells some who are cleanly and care
ful in their habits and surroundings,
but it slays an infinitely
larger number of thosa who live and
move and bave their being in filth and
squalor, and amid the ravages of decay.
To be cleanly all the way through and
then to be careful in one's habits is to
cut the cholera off at the start. The way
to fight it is not to try to quench it like
a conflagration that has started, but to
Btarve it, as men do a fire when they blow
up whole blocks of buildings and leave
nothing to burn. To remove the filth is
to head it off. There srd spots in Dav
enport, cleanly as it is, that need this
sort of attention. Let every man
see that his own premises and bis alley
are clean, and the city will keep the
streets clean. Begin now to clean up.

and on committees, the convention ad
journed until 1:30 o'clock this afternoon.

o'clock this afternoon, and the commit
tee on credentials made its report, which
was read by the chairman of the commits
tee. After bearing the report it was
adopted, and on motiOD of Thomas
Nowers the temoorary organization was
made petnv.nent. Dr. Einyon tlen
mived that the chairman of tach dele
gation be empowered to cast the full vote
of the delegation.

being the nominations of two candidates

lowing were selected as such: C. F
Wennerstrum, Cambridge, F. H. McAr
thur, Geneseo; Dr. C. B. Kinyon, Rock
