THE OSKALOOSA HERALD.
Leighton A Needham, Editors.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1874
VOLUME TWENTY-FIVE.
With this first No. of volume Twenty
five, we present our readers with the
Herald dressed up in new tyi>e through
out An attempt was made by us to en
large to a 40-column paper, but our press
would not stand it and we were compelled
to forego that pleasure until such a time
as our exchequer would warrant us in
buying a new press.
Twenty four years ago, (on the 2d of
July, 1850.) the first number of the
HERALD was issued. It was called the
Imcft Herald, and was less than half as
large as the paj>er is now. It was owned
and edited by John R. Needham (brother
of our W. H. Needham) and Hugh Mc-
Neely.
There is probably no greater change in
the appearance of the town than there
has been in that of the Herald. Oska
loosa at that time had no brick business
houses, and but very few of any kind.
Its sole church was the old C. I*., still
still standing. It had no manufactories,
but few stores and but little trade. Had
no public school building—private school
being held in the old church s|token of.
Whisky was sold by the drink in nearly
every business house, and altogether, ex
cept for the location, the town was not a
very promising one. Now we have scores
of blocks of solid brick business
houses, nearly a score of magnificent
churches, three good brick school-houses,
—one costing $50,000. Two colleges
that cost $50,000 each, two railroads,
steam fire engine, our streets lighted by
gas. and one of the finest cities and best
local trades, in the land. The Herald
lias kept pace with these improvements)
and we hojie it will not seem like egotism
for us to say that within the nine years we
have had control of its columns (in whole or
in part) it has received more real mechan
ical improvement than in all time previ
ous. When No. 1 was issued the whole
office was valued at $250. Fifteen years af
terward when we bought in, the office was
hold at S4OOO. and was composed of a
hand press, jobber, scant lot of job type,
and the necessary news ty|ic to run the
paper. To-day we have one of the very
best offices in the State, Potter Power
Steam Press, Gordon Jobber, splendid
steam engine. 200 fonts of job tyjie, the
best book office in this part of the State,
plenty of news tvp©—all new, with the
appurtenances necessary to fit up a first
class office; and within six months have
refused $12,000 for the office, without
the realty. We have worked hard, have
made some money, and every dollar has
been re-invested in our business, thus ena
bling us to give our patrons a good j»apcr
and good job work. Our profits have
been expended in improvements, and so
they shall continue to be, so that every
dollar expended with us goes to improve
the town and benefit the public.
The HERALD started with barely 200
subscribers, and was printed in a little
back room in the second story of the old
frame that stood until 1803, on the corner
where Mrs. Merrill’s brick now stands.
To-day it has a circulation ten times as
great, owns, and occupies nearly the whole
of a two-story brick 20x120, is printed
by steam, and has all the other modern
improvements.
The [taper was started as a Whig paper,
with strong anti-slavery proclivities, and
stood as one of the god-fathers to the
Republican party; its then editor, John
R. Needham, being one of the eight who
organized the party in tills county.
When the llerai.i> first made its appear
ance, Mahaska county and the State of
lowa were Democratic. It was but a
short time until a change was made in
the county, John R. Needham defeating
R. R. Harbor for the Senate, and the
State soon followed. During the 24 years
that have elapsed since No. 1 was issued,
the IlEßAl.lt has been true to the princi
ples of the party with which it was allied.
It worked for Scott in '52, and Fremont
in 'SO, and saw its candidates go down
before the votes of a victorious South.
In 1860 it worked for Lincoln, and saw
victory perch upon its banner, and
slavery's doom sealed. It recorded the
principal events of a long and bloody
civil war in which both its present pro
prietors wore the blue; the second elec
tion of Lincoln and his assassination by a
minion of slavery ; the return of peace;
the apostacy of Andy Johnson ; the re
construction of the South, have all been
recorded in its columns; but its sjiecialty
is to faithfully record the local news of
Mahaska county.
Thanking all for the very lil»eral support
given, and hoping you will like our new
dress ; we make our best bow, with the
wish that we may talk to all our present
readers and many new ones, a score of
years hence.
The Ohio Republican platform re-af
firms the principles and policy of the Re- ,
publican party; eulogizes its achieve
ments ; demands honesty in office ; favors
tariff for revenue with such incidental
protection as may aid and encourage in- ,
dustry ; denounces all forms of repudia
tion, and declares that justice and public
faith demand that the debt of the United |
Suites should be paid in accordance with <
the loans under which it was created, as ( (
declared in the act of March, ’69, and
that it is the duty of the government to J
adopt such measures as shall gradually
but certainly restore our pajier money to
a specie value, banking should be made ,
free, so that the circulating medium may ,
expand or contract, according to the de-
mauds of commerce or trade, and favors
appropriate legislation, National and State,
to secure cheap and speedy transporta
tion of products of industry, endorses the
repeal of the salary bill by Congress, and
applauds its reduction of expenses and
general reform of abuses ; condemns the
recent outrages on colored people of the
South, and declares that restraint of in
temperance and its causes to the full ex
tent of the legislative, judicial and police
powers of the State, and forfeiture of pub- *
lie trust for intoxication, are demanded by
the moral and material welfare of society
and the State.

OUR TICKET.
The Republican County Convention
last Saturday made judicious selections,
and gave us a good ticket, and a strong one.
DAVID R. MOORE.
the candidate for Clerk of the Courts is a
resident of Prairie Tp., where he has re
sided eight or nine years, a teacher by
profession, and taught eighteen terms
in the New Sharon academy and High
School. He is a gentleman in every par
ticular, well qualified for the position, up
right and honorable in his dealings, and
highly respected by all who have met him.
As an index of the estimation in which he
is held at home, we refer to the vote of
the primary election last year, when he
was a candidate for county superinten
dent. His township cast 134 votes of
which he received 133. Could a higher
compliment be paid a man ? He has no
enemies ami many warm friends. He
will be elected by a good healthy ma
jority.
WILLIAM R. COWAN.
our candidate for Recorder, is the pres
ent faithful incumbent, and was renomi
nated by acclamation. He has made the
best Recorder the county ever had, and
that is saying a good deal, but the records
warrant the assertion. He is always at
his post, ready to do his duty and wait
ujrhi the public. We have frequently
heard words of praise for him, from
strangers who have had dealings with him.
William is almost a native of Mahaska,
brought here by his father many years
ago when quite a small urchin. When
Uncle Ham found he had a little unpleas
antness on his hands he took Billy into
the little squad he called for, as a mem
ber of Co. K, 33d lowa, where for three
years he carried his musket and did his
duty, faithfully and well He carries now
as love tokens of those days, two rebel
bullets in his body. He is honest, up
right, capable, and will be elected by sev
eral hundred majority.
WILLIAM STEWART,
the nominee for member of the Board of
Supervisors, is of Adams Tp., a well
to-do farmer, an intelligent, honest gentle
man. One who is fully qualified in every
way for the resjamsible position to which
he has been nominated. He has been
many years a resident of Adams, and rep
resented it one or more terms on the old
board. lie is a man of good judgment,
not easily influenced, and will always do
what he thinks is exactly right. This is
the man we want you to vote for as Su
pervisor.
Readers, this is oiir ticket. The nom
inations are now complete on both sides,
and the campaign is fairly open. You
have the two tickets before you, anil will
soon be called upon to make choice be
tween them. Remember that one ticket
represents the principles of the Republi
can party, the other 0. If our men are
not as good as the other ticket, we ask
nothing for them. But we have good
men and we ask your votes.
POLITICS IN GRANGES.
Grand Master Adams, writing to a Min
nesota grange about the inditical feature,
says:
“I have no doubt but the Master of your
State Grange will promptly apply the cor
rection to any subordinate grange which
so far forgets its constitutional obligations
as to take part in partisan jHilitics. I ful
ly agree with you that our Order must not,
as such, become a political organization.”
If there is anything in the order the
decisions of the Grand Master should
have some weight, and yet we know
that in lowa, hundreds of granges have
openly (or rather in secret session) violat
ed his orders. In Mahaska county last
year the anti-monops made public nom
inations in a convention of delegates, all
selected in the granges, with closed doors,
and yet they are not allowed by the prin
ciples of the order to engage in politics as
an order. This year the matter is differ
ent. Emboldened by the partial success
es of last year, they have not to any great
extent elected their delegates in the grim
es ; and another reason for this is that
many of the granges, are fighting against
the jßilitical feature, and seeing where
they were led astray last year, they are
now back in the old Republican party
working for true reform. They see
now that the men in the anti-monop par
ty who are crying loudest for reform, are
men who never saw the corruption in the
Republican party until they were defeat
ed for office therein.
DAVID MORGAN.
The New Sharon Star of Lust week lias
a column of affidavits to prove that Da
vid Morgan, who now holds a commission
to preach, in the Friend's church, is a
Universalist at heart. What this may
have to do with a man’s politics may be
summed up in a few words. When we
talk of a man [H>litically, we do not ask
him what church he belongs to, neither
do we care, taking the privilege to be
lieve what we please ourselves and giving
all others the same right, but when we
Bee a man preaching one doctrine and be
lieving another, then we keep our hands
off of him politically, for if a man is
“slippery” on religious matters, it is safe
to presume that he is on political ones.
We give one of the affidavits spoken of
above.
New Sharon, lowa, Aug. 31, ’74.
I, Calvin Whinnery, do hereby certify
that David Morgan, present candidate for
Secretary of State on the anti-monop tick
et, did say to me that he wholly repudiat
ed the existence of a hell as preached by
orthodoxy. Calvin Wiiinnery.
Subscribed to in my presence and sworn
to before me by the said Calvin Whinnery,
this 31st day of August, 1874.
(Seal), Howard Hii.lih,
Notary Public.
Similar affidavits are given from W. H.
Widows, Charles Fagan, A. G. Smith, R.
E. Meeker, and H. J. Vail. We under
stand the matter is to be investigated by
the \ early Meeting now in session. As
we said before, the question should not be
as to what a man’s religion is, but wheth
er he is & hypocrite therein. Let him be
a man or a mouse,
Referring to the massacre of sixteen
negroes at Trenton, Tenn., by members of
the White League, the Sen&tobia (Miss.)
Signet says: # “The shooting of the prison
ers was wanton and unnecessary, and will
be followed by untold evils we had hoped
to avert. We can say no more about
reconciliation sectionally, aud amity and
good feeling among the races, if such mas
sacres are to be repeated. These terri
ble and distressing scenes give the lie to
our professions, and what hope can we
have in non-interference on the part of
Federal authority ? We can only deplore
such acts of wanton savagery as the veri
est insanity, and if persisted in will, as
sure as the sun shines, br.'n ' upon the
whole people of the touth measureless
calamity. May a kind and overruling
Providence save us from our friends.”

The President, in a letter to Secretary
of War Belknap, says that the utter dis
regard for civil law in South Carolina,
Louisiana, and Alabama, as evidenced by
the brutal murders by that fiendish suc
cessor to the Kukluk, the ‘“White
League,” makes it necessary to take some
steps by the Government, to protect its
citizens in these States, and he has auth
orized the Secretary to consult the Attor
ney General and locate the outrages, and
so order troops as to best protect all,
black and white from lawless bands. The
recent outrages have all been committed
by the “White League,” and all upon
Republicans. It looks a little like a po
litical organization.
The Davenport Gazette is of the opin

MAHASKA COUNTY.
[CONTINUED FROM EIRST PAGE.]
day, surrounded by every inducement for
the manufacturer, bids fair to be one of
the richest and most populous cities iu
the laud, as well as the most comfortable
and healthy. The following denomina
tions have
HOUSES OF WORSHIP,
and are supplied with pastors: First
Methodist, large brick church ; Second M.
E. (colored) frame; Simpson Charge, M.
E., very fine brick, cost $25,000 ; Pres
byterian, large brick; Congregational,
large frame, and a large new brick now pro
jected ; United Presbyterian, large brick;
Cumberland Presbyterian, frame —the
first built in town; Christian, large brick;
Baptist, large frame; Friends or Quakers,
large brick; Episcopal, large new frame;
Catholic, frame; and Friends' Yearly
Meeting House, where the annual meet
ings of that society are held for what they
call “lowa Yearly Meeting,” embracing
several States. These meetings are large
ly attended, ofttimes representatives from
across the ooean being present Besides
the above juetitioned churches, the Uni
versalists aud Unitarians hold servioes,
but have n> houses of worship, though the
former den miiuatiou have two nice build
ing lota. All of the above have flourish
ing Sabbath-schools, attended by multi-
tudes of happy young innocents, who are
learning to tread the right path. The
EDUCATIONAL ADVANTAGES
of Oskaloosa are not surpassed by any
town in the State. Oskaloosa College, an
imposing and beautiful structure, stands
in the west part of town, has a line ten
acre plat of ground attached, which is
neatly laid off and ornamented with ever
greens and fruit trees. The building cost
$50,000.
In the north part of town, near the
Yearly Meeting House, is Penn College,
built by the Friends. It is beautifully
situated on a ten acre plat of ground,
and is destined to become one of the best
educational institutions in the west. At
present but one wing is completed,—a
large three story brick, with stone base
ment. The main building and other
wing will be completed next year, and
will then be a magnificent building that
will cost $50,000 or over.
I n the south part of town is the new public
school house, built after the most modern
styles of architecture, beautifully finished ;
thegrounds embrace a whole block, and are
neatly fenced ; laid off in walks and plan
ted in shade trees. This beautiful build
ing cost $40,000, and will accommodate
900 scholars. Besides this we have two
other large two story brick school houses,
one in the north and the other in the east
part of town.
AN ARTESIAN WELL
is being sunk in the public square at Os
kaloosa, by the city, for the puri>ose of
obtaining plenty of water for fire protec
tion and other purposes. A depth of
900 feet was sunk, when caving in stoj>-
ped the work for a time, but it will soon
be pushed forward to completion. The

KIBE COMPANIES.
Oskaloosa lias three fire companies.
No. 1, lias a splendid, large steam engine,
of the Cole manufacture, with 1,000 feet
of good hose, and has done excellent ser
vice at several fires. Nos 2 and 3 are
hand engines, and manned by active en
ergetic young men, who are always pres
ent when the devouring element is abroad.
The fire alarm may be heard for miles.
GAS.
Our town is lighted by gas. The works
arc in the south-west part of town, and
furnish us a splendid article. We have
50 lamp posts up now, and more will
soon be erected. The posts are of home
manufacture, and as good as we ever
saw. The gas costs private consumers
$4.50 per 1000 feet.
THE BUSINESS
of the town is very extensive, and few
towns have better local trade than Oska
loosa.
FOR A RESIDENCE
Oskaloosa offers every inducement. It's
location is pleasant, its people are temper
ate, moral and quiet; rioting and disorder
art 1 almost unknown, and a figlit is some
thing almost unheard of. None of that
lawlessness exists that is so barrowing to
the ladies when upon the streets, and our
jieace officers grow rusty for want of occu
pation. Our town, though quite large,
lias plank, brick or stone pavements to all
parts, and a hasty calculation shows that
we have in the city twelve mile* of walks.
All kinds of produce can nearly always
be procured, and at reasonable rates, and
our railroad connections keep us near
enough all markets to get the delicacies of
all seasons. Property is low compared
with the vast advantages, and the lots
roomy and beautifully located, being OOx
120, eight to the block, which latter cut
by alleys into quarters leaves two lots
120x120 together. Business lots are gen
erally 20x120. Vacant building lots range
from SIOO to SOOO each, according to
location, and business lots SSO to SIOO
per foot. Building materials are about
as cheap us in any of the States farther
east, and calculations may be made on
the cost of property built up. Our great
want is
MORE MANUFACTORIES,
aud cheap coal, railroad facilities, low
prices for everything we eat, cheap prop
erty, etc., should draw to capi
talists to engage in the manufacture ol
everything we use. And now a few
words about
TIIE ROADS.
Living in any country, it is a matter ol
interest to know how we can travel. Ma
haska is blessed with good roads, general
ly ; fine bridges span all the streams, as
witness the seven iron bridges, and nu
merous wooden ones across the various
streams. The soil is of that peculiar
formation, rich sandy loam, that a heavy
rain to-day will not interfere with to-mor
row's travel. Never have we seen a coun
try where travel was less impeded by the
roads than here.
MILLS.
Our county is well blessed with mills
as follows: Steam-mills, 6, viz : Seibel
& Co., and Atkins & Co., Oskaloosa ;
Montgomery & Co., and the Hoops
Mill, Beacon ; N. S. Stein & Co., Leigh
ton ; Mr. Hoover, two miles north-east of
town, in Oskaloosa Tp. Water mills, 10,
viz: R. B. Warren, Richland Tp., near
Peoria ; Parker & Cramer, (known as the
“Maris Mill,”) nine miles uorth-west of
Oskaloosa in Black Oak Tp ; Whitmore
& Co., (“Upper Mill”) four miles north
of Oskaloosa, in Madison Tp; John H.
Warren’s (“Glendale” or Lower Mill,)
four miles north-east of town in Oska
loosa Tp.; Charles Courier, 8 miles east
of town, in White Oak Tp. The above
are all on South Skunk. On North Skunk
we find A. Baughman’s new mill, two
miles from New Sharon ; the new mill at
Union Mills, not completed ; Roberts
Mill, four miles below Union Mills, in
Monroe Tp.; two miles west of Indianapo
lis ; “Baughman's old mill,” at Hopewell,
in Monroe Tp.; the Smith & Bridges
mill, same tp., on the Sigourney road.
The Mclntyre Mill above New Sharon,
Currier & Lough's new mill, below Spring
field, aud the Lord Mill below Fremont,
are just over the line, though largely pat
ronized by Mahaska people. There are
also two Woolen factories, Seibel & Co.,
and Robb & Proudfit, in Oskaloosa. Two
planing mills, Bundy & Duke, and
LeSeur, Correil & Holloway, Oskaloosa.
The latter was destroyed by fire recently,
but has been rebuilt of brick.
CHEESE FACTORIES.
Within two years our great pastures
have been put to practical use, and cheese
factories have been established in differ
ent sections of the county. Lewis Nor
dyke is the jpoueer in this business. His
factory is two miles north ol Oskaloosa,
and he has lein making exocllent cheese,
as has David Thatcher, two miles tast of
town. S. G. Caster, near New Sharon,
Kinsman & Kudicott, White Oak Tp.,
Maaloby & Co., Indianapolis, and others
all have good factories.
IMPROVEMENTS.
Probably no county has made so many
improvements as Mahaska has this year.
All over the county we see new houses and
barns springing up, and in the towns not
only dwellings but the most substantial
business houses are being put up yearly.
For four seasons the improvements in
Oskaloosa annually exceeded SIOO,OOO.
OUR COUNTY FAIR.
is one of the best attractions. The socie
ty own 30 acres of ground on the west
side of town, adjoining the corporation,
and have one of the best tracks in the
State; good stalls and sheds, a fine am
phitheater capable of holding 5,000 per
sons, a new Floral hall 70x100 feet,
plenty of water, and all the conveniences
necessary to accommodate persons and
stock, and four days of every year this
vast enclosure is crowded with horses,
stock, hogs, articles and people of the
county. Our county has the reputation
of having the best fair in the State.
