Attempted to Rob the
Special to Times-Republican.
Fort Dodge* Sept. 21.—A strike which
promises to be a bitter struggle between
the owners of the coal mines at Lehigh
and the miners Is now on at Lehigh.
The conditions of the town of Lehigh,
a coal mining town eighteen miles
southeast of this city, are those of a
regular Sunday and has been so for the
past two weeks. Fortunately the com
pany had on hand a sufllcient amount of
coal to supply its engines for some time,
but this supply is now about exhausted
and coal from outside mines will have
to be purchased, a thing the company
has never had to do since the mines
were opened by them. The Corey mine
was used to supply fuel for their brick
"which is an extensive plant. They
are completely out of red pressed brick
and no coal in the town with which to
burn more. They have had to cancel a
number of orders for brick on account
of the strike.
The cause of the strike is a difference
of wages, the miners demanding the
district price per ton. which is 90 cents,
and $1.84 per day for day men. At pres
ent they are receiving 75 cents per ton
and $1.78 per day for day men.
The price of £oal is being advanced

Parkersburg, Sept. 21.—This town has
been infested of late by sneak thieves
most of the burglaries have been com
mitted by home talent. A short time
ago an attempt was made to rob the
Illinois Central safe by pounding the
door and lock all to pieces, so the safe
had to be shipped to Chicago before it
could be opened. The company at once
put a detective on the trail and last
night he got Wallace Codner, more
commonly known as "Blackie," to con
fess the whole affair, after having him
in the sweat-box for a short time. He
was promised leniency if he would give
the names of the other parties impli
cated. Charles Van Housen, a distant
relative, of "Blackie's," was mentioned
as one of the parties and was immedi
ately arrested, he being employed at the
present time in Conn's livery barn. And
a man by the name of Whitlock is sup
posed to be the other man. He left
town a few days ago, overland, headed
lor Des Moines. His occupation has
been "no work" and passes for a fourth
class horse trader. Codner has a broth
er serving a nine months' sentence in
the county jail now for burglary. No
doubt Whitlock will be captured in a
short time, and most likely all three
will get a term In the penitentiary.
Tuesday night Ed Scherllng's and Dr.
Kaufman's houses were broken into and
a small amount of money taken at
Scherllng's, but the thieves were fright
ened away at Kaufman's before they
had gotten any plunder.
The town is in hopes that it can rid
itself of the balance of these cowardly
sneak thieves.

away, your courteous and cordial invi

gladness of this reunion, where we can
fight our battles over again in a way
very much more agreeable than we did
over thirty-three years ago. Since
reaching Iowa City, I have been made
to know what an Iowa welcome means.
The fame of this cultivated community
and splendid seat of learning had
reached me before, but I have now
learned more of the warm hearts and
generous hospitality to be found in your
midst. Above all, you have given me a
soldier's welcome. Sometimes I think
that the men who were first in the
charge were also the first in the forgiv
ing afterwards. Brave men learn to
honor courage and principle, even in
their enemies, and when the battle is
over are as quick to bind up the wounds
as they were to make them. We old fel
lows with the gray hairs are not going
to let the sun of life go down on our
wrath. If there is anything in your
hearts, my countrymen, a shred of bit
terness towards your brethren of the
south, a feeling of wrong which still lin
gers, a loss whose sorrow the merciful
years have never healed. I implore you
let them not go down with you to the
grave, but here and now let them be lost
in our country's reconciliation 'In the
deep bosom of the ocean buried.'
