Meyers THE DOW qiTY FAILURE./" It is even at this time too early to know all the causes that lead up to the disastrous failures,of the Green busi ness interests at Dow City. The effects will be felt in many homes for many months, even though the fin*I settle ment be as favorable as Mr. Green predicts. It will mean at the very least, temporary embarassment, en forced economy and perhaps actual privation for some of the depositors, and for these and for Mr. Green and his family and associates we have gen uine sympathy. That the failure caused as little uneasiness and unset tlement of credit as it did is the high est possible proof of the solidity of the other banks (if the unty and the gen. eral confidence in tbem. The failure was as far as we know, on uccount of special causes, not because general panic conditions or hard times an) for this reason the other financial institu tions of»the county, were injured in only compxrativelv trival amounts and their credit and standing were injured not at all. It is certainly a tribute to the gen eral esteem in which Mr. Green is held that there are at this time so few charges of dishonesty of any kind. A man who has lost a few hundred dollars or more in a bank failure is usually in about as good humor as the man who has missed the last three meals, and he la not to be taken too severely to task if he says things, but in this instance we have heard ot iine but expressions of regret for the unfortunate series of circumstances that made the assign ment necessary. Mr. Green has done much for Dow City anil for the P1 ople of western Crawford, although the injury done by the failure will possibly outweigh them. We shall not try to point any morals or adorn ny ilea, but wecan but think that the legislature of Iowa has been greatly in error in not providing for the examination of private banks. There re many private banks just as strong financially as any state or national bank. Such institutions wouid not suiter from examinations and publicity. National and state banks are not immune, but their failures are seldom so severe or complete as those of private banks. We fail to see how any bank would he done ao injury by examination und we believe that on the contrary they would be advan.aged by the additional confidence such exami nation would giye. In the history of this county there bus been but one bang failure that occasioned any con siderable loss to depositors. This is a record to be proud of. There is no danger thtit any other bank in this vicinity will be, or are' affected, and there is no occasion for anything but absolute confidence in the banks and farms and fields and business men of old Crawford. Had Time to Rest. Mr. Choate, ih j. ambassador of the United States at London, tells a story of a sculling match that took place be tween an Englishman, a student of Ox ford, and an Irishman, a student of Cambridge. The Briton won handily. At no time was he in danger of defeat. Moreover, in a spirit of fun and brava do, he had stopped two or three times in his course and had bade the Irish man in the rear "to hurry up." After the race the Irishman came in for a good deal of chhff, in view of the overwhelming defeat he had suffered But he merely shrugged his shoulders. "Faith." he said, "if I had had the long rests that he took I could have beaten him easily." —Webster City Freeman. 7" Willie Hearst has knocked all the hoorts off his barre1 and is spending countless sums in his attempt to secure the democratic nomination for the presidency. He has lately crowded a large sum upon the newspaper plate houses and we have been officially in formed that we can have page after page of Hearst boom matter and dem ocratic political news for the asking. It is cordiaily declined and .without thanks. —Ida County Pioneer. it* -T ^*1 •/. •&y & m$3MM: ^Sn THE MAJESTY OP THE LAW, A wonderful thing happened this week. A shameful ar.d disgraceful thing. A iiiiilul tMnp. A th'ng rt fleet)mr at the same time both dishonor and credit to America in.-titutioni. A United States Senator stood before prohibited, the bar of justice, tried and convicted, to receive sentence. The crime was that of selling the in fluence of his high position, the sent ence carried with it that never again should he hold any position of honor, trust or emolument under the govern ment of the United States. The additional sentence, six months in jail, a 83500 fine, carried little added punishment It could not. The change from the marble halls of the senate chamber to the steel walls of the cell will not be so great to that man as mental fall. It was indeed a pitiful, a disnonor able, a disgraceful sight, but it demon- and place and gave the lie to the dema- gogic cry thai justice is only for the poor and humble. The haughty senator nf the republic standing before the bar of the republic receiving his sei.tence with bowed bead is a picture to bf remembered, to the honor of the law which knows no high, nor low and to the terror of the evil doer no matter how exalted his station. The "Big Tenth." MIIS One of his townsmen was arrainged for a crime and he had no counsel. The judge explained to him that he was entitled to have counsel assigned to him. He pointed out several attor neys in the courtroom, naming them as ho did an, and said: "Here are Mr. So-and-So, and So and-So, and Mr. Smitn is out in the corridor. You can choose any one you want and I will assign him to you." The prisoner slowly tootced the law yers in the courtroom ov^r, one after the other, and then he replied: "If it suits your honor just is well, I'd as soon have the one in the hall."

This was ndtural enough, for they shared everything, from their baby carriage to chicken pox. As they grew a little older, however, there were slight differences between Elnora and Eudora, but Mrs. Halliday took no account of them. When they bad reached the age of seven, she still referred to them in a way which struck casual listeners as amusing. "Where are Elnora and Eudora 7" asked a cousin, who had come to spend the afternoon. "The twins have gone with their fa ther to have one of their teeth oat," •aid Mrs. Halliday calmly.
