Re. White, who lectures ia the inter

Wen eiDectine tr -aMe in Muscatine for
cver&l days pist, came nearly precipitat
he a riot there vesterdT afternoon. He
te bad a hall engaged there on several
ceastoM for the purpose of speak ine,
tat as there were always threats of
trouble it was postponed. He. however,
advertised that he would speak yesterday
in spite of anything, so when it came
time to be erin in the afternoon the hall
vu crowded. Rev. Wiiite first asked
2 there was a protest ant minister
in the house who would offer prayer, no
ne responded, and he led in prayer him
self. Advancics to the front of the
platform he started to speak, but in an
fcslant hundreds of voices in the aud
fenee began to yell, which was kept up
mil the speaker retired to his seat when
ft again became quiet.
lie arose a second time, and was again
greeted by boisterous yells, and aain he
sat down. A large number of ladies
were in the aulience, and the speaker
tfcea said that as there was a prospect of
some trouble the ladies had
better retire which they did. Rev
White once more tried to speak, but his
words were drowned in the yells and at
this moment a volley of bricks and stones
were thrown at the stage and the speaker
retired. The crowd then went outside
and locked the lecturer in the ball, where
ks-wu kept a prisoner for several h urs
He was released along toward evening
ad went to a hotel where a large mob
congregated on the corner and threats of
violence were freely made.
Tne sheriff who was looking after the
the speaker's safety finally .promised the
arowd that if it would disperse he would
see that Rev. White did not speak in
Muscatine, and it afterward scattered,
The lecturer is still there however, and

Canttdale Protent. .22
A motion for a new trial of the case of
&e State of Iovavs. WillUm H. Cans
dale was filed in the district court at D?
so port Siturtlay. Cmsdile, or his attor-
aey for him, claims in the piper that the
verdict was contrary to the la and the
svideoce. and that his trial was not a fair
and impartial one, because considerable
testimony damaging to himself and his
witnesses that was ordered stricken out
as improper, could not help but icfl jence
the jury in tbtir decision against him
Tour instances are cited in which the
oourt is alleged to have erred in rulings
and instructions, and new evidence tend
ing to prove Cansdale's innocence is al
leged to have been discovered. Several
pages of legal cap are used in an effort
to prove that Cansdale cannot be held
liable for all or any of the four charges
brought against him, and that the court
and jury owe him an apology for both
ring him at all. He urges that he u
a deeply injured but innocent man and
that he should be restored to his 'liberty
As to the.Rouatsbout'a Ieath. iZZL
JC second telegram from St. Liu is re
ceived Saturday makes it look as if the
Border theory as a way of accounting
4w the death of Jim Williams, the Sid
ey's roustabout, who was drowned at
Davenport recently, would fall through.
At any rate the telegram states that
Charles Stewart, the colored man, who
was first reported as saying that he saw
ike other man under arrest push Williams
iao the river, now says that the fellow
slabbed Williams on the boat and pushed
kua into the aah pit. If the felloir
c&ooses to contradict himself or refuses to
WL, there Is nothing else to base the
ssorder theory upon. On the body of the
Bgro when found there were no marks
C violence. That the matter may be
thoroughly investigated, however, the
authorities in St. Louis have been tele
payhed to hold the prisoners if they can
awfully do so, and in the meantime Dav-
Bport officers will have an opportunity
f iaterviewing the officers of the Sidney.
Keep it in the house and it will save
yon many an anxious moment daring the
cfca&ges of season and weather; we refer

edy for cough and cold.
JUDGE PETER TURNEY.
Whom Tennessee. DeaaoeraSa
Will Elect Governor.
Judge Turney, the chief justice of the
supreme court of Tennessee, whom the
Democrats recently selected as their
gubernatorial candidate, is one of the
mo6t remarkable men in the south.
Born in Jasper, Tenn., on the 22I of
September, he is about sixty-five
years of age, and nearly half of these
years has been spent in the public
service, civil and military.
M. ' ST .-' V., ,'
JTTX5E PETER TVKNEY.
He organized a regiment (the First
Tennessee Confederate infantry, better
known as the "Hog Drivers) in April.
1861, and left Tennessee for the Confed
erate army in Virginia on the l6t of May
ensuing, his being the first regiment
from Tennessee which entered the Con
federate service. This regiment, com
plimented on many occasions for gal
lantry, he commanded throughout the
war, except so much of it as his wounds
in battle deprived him of power to do
Several times slightly wounded, he was
twice severely so in the battle of Fred
ericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862.
Early in that engagement he was
knocked down by a fragment of an ex
ploded shell, and later shot through the
mouth with a minie ball and left on
the field for dead. Subsequently car
ried from the field, he recovered after
months of severe suffering, and rejoin
ing his command remained with it un
til the surrender of the Confederate
armies. In 1870 he was elected judge
of the supreme court, re-elected in 1878,
and again in 1886. After the last elec
tion he was made chief justice.
He Will Reprencnt the Sixth Georcta
Diiitrirt in Congress.
Thomas Calaniss. known all over
Georgia as Tom. was recently nominated
for congress by the Democrats of the
Mr. Cabaniss served throughout the
war on the Confederate ?itl. He was
elected to the house ef representatives
in October, W. H commenced the
practice of law in l70at Fovth. Ga.
lie was elected a member of the council
r? - ;
ft 1 ' f
and afterward mayor of Forsyth. Ir
1872 he was elected secretary of th
Georgia senate, but resigned in January,
1S3, upon being aj'pointed solicitor gen
eral of the Flint circuit. He served as
such until elected to the senate from the
Twenty-second senatorial district in
1876. He was again elected from the
same district to the senate of 1873-9. He
was chairman of the finance committee.
Senator Cabaniss was elected to the
senate from his district again in 1884.
and was made chairman of the judiciary
committee of that senate of 1884-5. In
1887 he was tendered by Mr. Blount the
clerkship of the committee on postoffices
and postroads of the house of represent
atives of the United States, and served
as such during the Fiftieth congress.
A Coat and Taiin.i
Not so very long ago Mr. Harriwc
met the Democrats' proposition to reduce
tariff taxation and cheapen prices with
the sneer that "a cheap coat makes a
cheap man." He now claims that the
great object of the Republican tariff
policy was to cheapen prices. Evidently
the president has added not only a cheap
coat, but a turncoat to his wardrobe.
Bow It Looks in Iowa.
Take the recent Republican "victory"
in Vermont as it stands and extend the
same Republican loss of votes into Iowa
in proportion, and the plurality of 81,711
for Harrison in 1888 will be wiped out in
November next and changed to a plural
ity of 6,000 and over for Cleveland, and
this is just about the way Iowa looks at
present for Republican consolation.

The Socialists Are Republicans 1
In a lengthy review of the politico
labor conditions in Chicago, The News
Record of that city said on Saturday,
Oct. 1: "The purely socialistic element
is generally straight Republican. The
socialists believe in protection and in a
paternal form of government. As a
rule they do not vote, for the reason that
neither party presents a realization of
their ideas. The anarchist element,
which is absurdly magnified into con
siderable proportions, does not vote at
all, many of them not having been
naturalized, for the reason that they
were unwilling to tate oath of alle
giance. This statement, eminating from a
newspaper tliat has distinctively Repub
lican leaning, and which raised the little
red school house issue in 1888, shows
that Judge Altgeld is not a favorite with
the socialists of Chicago.
Either Perk or Aldrtrh Was Wrong-.
The Republican organs which a short
time ago were commending Senator Al- !
drich's statement in regard to the effects
of the tariff are directly refuting his
statements when they call attention to '
Mr. Peck's monstrous array of statistics, j

If Harrison is a statesman, as some of
