Need of Establishment of a Superior Court There, Emphasized. Special so i'iinea-Hcpublican. Grinnell, March 19.—A very interest ing and profitable hour was spent in the auditorium of the Congregational church last evening after the "benev olent-social" supper, in listening to some revelations of Japan and the .Japanese from the Ups of Rev. H. B. Newell, of JN'iigata, Japan, who has been in that country twenty years as a missionary of tlhe American board. As showing the inlluence of Protestant Christianity in that country, he stated that while the proportion of Christians to the whole population would give about one Christian to each parliament, the fact has ibeeti that from ten to lifteen have been found there and the presiding officer had been, in iiu-st of tile sixteen parliaments held, a Chris tian man of great inlluence ill the right direction. It was a matter of regret to all who were present, that the time of the speaker had to be greatly limited on account of the musical recital at the dedicatory exercises of tile new organ at the chapel. Alec Rose, wiho has been living in the W. H. Shaliun property on West street, moved yesterday to the farm of the Rlnefort Brothers, about live miles northwest of this city. F. S. Edge, who has been for several years the very acceptable passenger agent for the Iowa Central at this point, but who resigned about a month ago, has made' a start in the (handling of South Dakota, lands, having some 1.800 acres in one body, to which lie is directing the attention of prospec tive buyers. He is still In the ticket office here as no one has yet 'been sent to till the position. The annual celebration of the birth of Odd Fellowship in this country, will •be observed in U'niw district a.t New Sharon this yoar, on the 23rd Of April, and the Grinnell liebekah degree staff will give an exemplification of the secret work at that place at that time. W. H. Jones, of the Jones Piano Company, has been quite ill lately wltb stomach trouble, but is feeling some what better at the present writing. The Ladies' Aid society of the Metli^ odist church at Sonora, in Sheridan township, recently held an old time spelling contest which was unique in conception, and very successful in exe cution. The contestants were divided into classes according to ages. In each class two prizes had been provided, one for the boys and one for the girls, by the liberality of the merchants of Grinnell. The contests were quite ex citing and brought out an audience that taxed the capacity of the church. In connection with this part of the en tertainment an excellent supper was served, and, while all had a remark ably good time, there was a handsome sum of money realized toward the pay ment for furniture and other furnish ings for the church. The large number of cases appearing this term upon the docket of the dis trict court at Montezuma as originat ing in Grinnell, emphasizes again the especial need of the establishing of a superior court In this city, to which the law passed by the last legislature entitles us. The general opinion of those best posted In the matter Is that we not only greatly need It for the gen eral accommodation of the people of this viciinty. but that, as fast as the machinery can be set in motion to ob tain it. it will be done and we may ex pect to have It In full operation be fore very many months have passed.

The Christian Church society per petrated a pleasant surprise on Mrs. J. V. Williams, in the form of a kitchen shower at the home of her paren's, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Vance. Tho guests filled the house, and a rain of nearly every kind of utensil used in a kitchen was showered upon the sur prised recipient, thus showing appreci ation of the faithful services of Mrs. Williams in church and Endeavor. Mrs. Williams was the leading so prano in the choir, and her voice will be greatly missed. Miss Ethel Miller will begin her first term as a teacher next Monday in the Pleasant View school. Mrs. Flora Xesmith. north of town, is critically ill with pneumonia. The young babe of Airs. Herman Rohl, who died last week, is being cared for by its mother's sister at the family home. There was considerable speculation as to whom would be in trusted with the child, but altlio the aunt is young girl, she has shown adaptability, and settled the matter by declaring it would not go out of the family.

McBride &• I Will Drug Co. .... 1 t" ~i C- j, Demand Active, in That Market, With Prices Steady to Stronjr HOGS STEADY TO STRONG Prices Averaged Five Higher, Despite Poor Demand From Shippers and the Backwardness of Packers Light Run in Sheep, But Market Was Strong and 10 to 15 Higher. Chicago, March 19.—'Cattle There was an active demand at steady to strong prices, and there were advances in spots reaching 15 cents. The fact that only 15,000 cattle land ed hero yesterday after the sharp ad vances in values in the past three weeks is good evidence that the sup ply in the country has dwindled down to slim proportions convpared with a month or two ago. The effects of feed ers' skepticism in the trade -early this season are plainly in evidence nowa days. They put in a short supply of feeding steers and rushed to market a big share of the short fed kinds they then had on hand. Shortage for this season was thus inevitable and the outcome is a big jump In prices. Smaller hog supplies are another reason for the big advance 1n prices in late wevks. The markets have 'been crowded with cheap 'hog meats toward which the public turned favor rather than buy beef at the higher prices. Now the beef Is selling a little better but the killers say the trade is still not In shape to warrant such high prices for cattle, 'but as yet they 'have 'been at a loss to 11 ml means to check the ad vance. Hogs. Xotwithstanding the poor demand from shippers, anil the backwardness of packers, prices were steady to strong, averaging 5c higher. Yesterday saw the appearance of the 5-cent hog. One small lot of heavy porkers brought that price. Last Wednesday the top was $1.70. Prices have bounded upward faster than the trade generally expected, but It will be noticed that for two weeks receipts have fallen below the average. Offer ings at the river markets are falling off. and here the supply Is very much lighter than it was a few weeks ago. S.mie interpret tills to mean that the big end of the crop is In. and "that moderate receipts will be the rule from now on. Sheep. Sheep were 10® 15c higher, on a light run and strong demand.

(Special Washington Correspondence.) Washington. March 19. llovv com pletely Japan lias been surrounded and hedged about by the susplclon-bred alliances or western nations, lias been Illustrated in the development of the fact that Great Britain is bound by some sort of diplomatic understand ing to guarantee *'hiua against unfair aggressions of any other power. I lit' fact has been made public in rather vague form as an incident to the re cent troubles between Tokio and Pe kin over the Tatsu Maru Inoident. The world's diplomacy talks less about the ytllow peril than It did a few years ago. for one reason, and the chief one, because tile phrase is dis agreeable to a powerful and quick tempered nation but diplomats point out will) some satisfaction that one reason why there Is less of the yellow peril is that western nations have pret ty well organized themselves against lis menace. Japan's alliance with Mritain was supposed, at the time it was renewed two years ago as a square defensive and offensive undertaking, to assure the place of Japan as rather more than an independent member of the group of first powers. But Japan's ambitions, If she has them. .for a career of ex pansion are none the less circum scribed by various conditions. When there was reason to fenr that relations between the United States and Japan might be strained to the breaking point. it developed very promptly that Germany was prepared to lend her sympathy to this nation in case of trouble. Tile kaiser has long been the most seriously concerned of all western rulers about the menace of oriental competition for world dominion. Then when Japan turned I ward her ally, England, she found the tie of relationship so strong be tween the two branches of the Anglo Saxon race that It menaced even her alliance. The American fleet was or dered to tie Pacific. In disregard of Japanese susceptibilities, tho with the assurance that the visit was one of friendship, and being in the Pacific, it has been ordered home by way of the far east—but with Japan left out of the line of progress. It is nothing less than a snub to Japan, so dainty tha^ it can't well he resented and it Is still more it is the notification that between the United States and the British empire relations .are so good that the visit of friendship is to be made to a far-away colony of Britain in preference to Jap an. Now comes the development of an understanding by which Britain is bound to take sides with China in case the latter is the object of aggression. This situation apparently forecloses possibility of serious aggression by! Japan in China, a field which without I much doubt, as diplomats view it, Japan has had in mind to exploit fully. But there will be no clash of arms over the Tatsu incident, and English influence is well understood to have prevented it. In short, Japan Is being Isolated In a fashion which seems to cut off her op por'.un'ty to reap much of the benefit of the advances she has recently made. Even Russia has entered into a coj vention with England which seems 1 certain to remove the possibilities of serious friction in Tibet, Afghanistan and Persia. The arrangement, indeed, has been subjected to serious criticism in England, hut on the whole It is re garded by diplomats as a. guarantee of a long term of comfortable rela tions. The peace pacts of the east ap pear directed to the business of Iso lating Japan, just as those of Europe in recent years, tinder the skillful dip lomacy of Edward have been aimed at the disarming of Germany. Japan and Germany are regarded as the two prime menaces to world-peace and in each case Britain Is credited with 500 CADILLAC Cadillac and Buick Also Oilier Higher Priced Cars.
