I own Journalism.
We doubt whether there has been
anything, in which the changes have
been so marked within a few years
past, as in journalism, We can re
member when a dingy looking paper
two feet squnre, containing each
week an est ray notice and a marriage
or death as local items, was counted
n first-clans paper, provided it had
plenty of long-winded editorials.—
Now such sheets would not be toler
ated—at least in Iowa. Only a few
years ago prosy editorials, giving a
condensed summary of the rise and
fall of the Roman Empire, were read
with zest now, you could not get
one reader in a hundred to wade
through" them. The Eldora Ledger
remarks that "th© field of the coun
try editor Is every day becoming
more circumscribed. Forty years
ago the country journal was all pow
erful and respectable. Most of the
United States depended upon them
for news, polities, opinions. Alas!
the mammoth metropolitan dailies
have got to circulating everywhere,
and the originality, tho strength and
profit of country papeos are almost
gone. What is there left for the edi
tor of a country pwper? Nothing but
to glean patiently the country news,
pick up every scrap of loral informa
tion, and serve it up with the richest
sauce he can make. In doing this,
some one is sure to take offense, but
our motto is tho news always, right
or wrong. Nothing else can give in
dividuality to a local paper, nnd a
local paper without individuality ia
dead in its shell."
No State in the Union has done
more than Iowa In journalistic pro
gress. You Bee few sickly, weakly,
poorly printed papers among the
Hawkeye press. Short editorials,
scarcely beyond paragraphical limi-
tations, have succeeded the long-
winded homilies, while the local
columns sparkle, each week, with
homo items. For one wt* are proud
of the Iowa press, and perhaps, in
fulfillment of that old adage, that
"misery loves company," we are
proud to count ourselves in the num
ber. Iowa newspapers are doing
more for our great State than any
human agency. The editors as a
rule show more enterprise, work
harder, and in proportion to their
of the "uuterrified," will be exposed
to the public scrutiny. Won't there
be tome huge developments?

The Newman and Harlan Letters.
The letter of Dr. J. P. Xewman,
of Washington, published 111 the Du
buque Herald* has stirred a great
commotion in political circles, not
only in Iowa, but elsewhere. We
publish the Newman letter in full,
with extracts from a letter to the
Davenport Gazette, by Senator Har
lan, sufficient to show his position:
The Newman letter reads:

Having been claimed that this was
a lithograph letter. Mr. Harlan
says:
A month since, and before leaving
Washington City, at the cloao of tho
recent Executive Session of tho Sen
ate, I received a communication from
a friend at Des Moines, Iowa, stating
t^at certain friends cf a gentleman
named as a candidate for the United
States Senate, were greats agitated
about a supposed lithograph letter,
purporting to have been written by
the Rev. Dr. Newman, favoring my
re-election, and that (hey were offer
ing one thousand dollars for an au
thentic copy, etc. Happening to
meet the Doctor, I handed him this
letter to read. After Its perusal, he
requested me to state to my friend,
that he (Newman) "had sent 110such
lithograph letter to Iowa, or else
where on that Bubject, and that no
one had done so for him, or in his,
name, so far ns he knew and believed
that he had written no private
or confidential letter for which any
one but himself was responsible, that
he claimed to be a frpe born citizen
of the United States, having the
right in common with all other citi
zons, to entertain and express his
opinions of public men and public
measures-"
Mr. Harlan further says:
It is difficult to divine the purpose
of the production of this supposed
letter, and its simultaneous publica
tion all over the country, with
tlie accompanying sensational
discussion—especially by tho D11-
(nje(j nnd

have merited the severest censure.—
In one of these dated January 13th,
under the caption "A word to our

the writer informed them that Mr.
Allison was, as far as the writer
could learn, "a favorite candidate in
all liberal circles of the Republicans.

Mr. Harlan closes his letter with
these statemanlike utterances, which
should call forth the frank endorses

friends, whatever may be said of the
wisdom of going into print to defend
liia position. He says:
"And now, let mo say a fiual word

who may read this letter. I have
never asked, expected or dusired sup

have never, at any time, adopted
means, either direct or indirect, to
secure church influence for such a
purpose. Ana although I am frank

did not scorn the distinction."

Important Railroad Dccisfta.
The following decision by Judge
Barker, of Dubuque, will be of in
terest to some of our citizens:
From the Dnbnqne Herald.
JUDGE BARKER'S DECISION.
The following is the opinion of
Judge Barker, given in open court
011 Monday morning, the lwth inst.:
"Presuming that the parties inter
ested in the injunction case of the
city of Dubuque vs. the C., I). A M.
railroad are anxious for a decision in
the case, I have carefully examined
the papers submitted anil the author
ities bearing 011 the case, and it is
my opinion that the injunction
should be granted for, whether by
act of congress or not the city ob
tained control of the property in
question, every citizen has an ease
ment in it which cannot be disre
garded. I11 the Cedar Rapids case
cited it is held that a city owns its
streets in fee simple and may grant
aright toartilroad corporation to
run through them. Judge Dillon
held that while this was true the
right was only to run over the street
and not to make the grade different, or
to obstruct it in any way. Accord
ing to that no one disputes the right
of the city to allow a railroad to run
through Main street, provided no ob
struction is offered to business. In
the case of the railroad widening
from Clinton to Lyons where Clin
ton opposed the right of way 011 ac
count of certain conditions not be
ing fulfilled by the railroad company,
Justice Dillon held that it was not
necessary to ask the city, but the
land could be taken under the right
of way act but that decision has
little to do with this case, for the
railroad company is not pursuing
that route under command of the
Legislature, but for their own inter-
n?1 havin«
1 right to sell the land
therefore, cannot, of course, grant
to a corporation the right of way
over It, and while the railroad may
proceed according to right of emi
nent domain, it must do it according
to the law, nnd keep in view the fact
tiiat it is liable to the city for dam
apes. The city may be greatly bene
fitted by tb e mad, hut the city GOOD*
cil must determine that."
