Benton County Authorities Seek Rela­
tives When James McCarty Became
III and They Come to His Bedside—
McCarty Left Home After Quarrel
With His Wife.
Special to Times-Republican.
Vinton. April 1.—James McCarty, an
inmate of the Iteulon county home,
was milled with his family after twen
ly-ninc years of separation, yesterday
afternoon, when two of his daughters,
who had learned of their fathers
whereabouts and physical condition,
rushed from Illinois lo gleet their fath
er, whom lliey had not heard from
since lheir early childhood.
The story revealed by this meeting
is long und interesting. Twenty-nine
years ago McCarty had some trouble
with his wife. On the pretense of go
ing rabbit hunting he picked up his
gun and walked from the house, anil
was not heard from by his tamily again
until thej read of his condition as an
inmate of the county home here in one
of the Calesbui'g papers. At the time
lie left, his family was a resilient of
Mechanicsville, Iowa. lOxtensive ad
vertising was resorted ur by tho moth
er and children to iind him, but linally
they gave up discouraged, and took it
for gran ,ed that he must have met
with l'ou,I play. After leaving home.
McCarty, who was then DO years of
age, wandered about the country, anal
ly settling down at Belle PlaiiTe, in
this county, where he has resided ever
since, up to four years ago, when he
met with an accident, breaking his
collar bone. Having 110 particular
friends or any known relatives in the
vicinity, he was brought to the county
home and taken care of. Several weeks
ago he was taken very sick, and the
superintendent of the home, Mr. lilli
ott, made an effort to locate some of
his relatives. An advertisement insert
ed in a Ualesbi.ug paper was seen by
some of the members of the family,
who immediately came to inton and
with no delay got to the bedside of
their aged and feeble father. The
members of the famiiy who came here
were Mrs. James Minehan and Mrs. I\
Morrisey. Mrs. Morrisey was but eight
years of age when her father leit
home, and the other daughter but 15.
It is thought that the old gentleman
will recover rom his present illness,
and it is the intention of the family to
send out his son for him later and take
him back to Illinois to unite again
with his aged wife and see that he
sets the best of care hereafter.
Mr. J. J. Farmer, Brother of Grinnell
Woman, Still in Danger.
Special to Times-Kepubllcan.
Grinnell, April 1.—Mr. and Mrs. J.
J. Fanner, living half way between
Ewart and Montezuma, nearly lost
their lives by asphyxiation. Monday
night, and are even yet not out of
danger. Mr. Farmer, who has 'been
in poor health, suffered most from
the exposure to the gas. They have a
hard coal stove, and on retiring prob
ably closed it too tightly and the gas
escaped, completely filling the room
in which they were sleeping, and all
the other rooms of the house that
were open. Their daughter, who lives
but a quarter of a mile distant from
their house, went there in the morning
as has been her daily habit, and was
greatly surprised to find the house
closed and no signs of life within. She
broke iri one of the windows and gained
entrance and opened doors and win
dows until the gas was driven out. A
physician was hurried to the home,
but it was a long time bpfore either
of them was brought back to con
sciousness. In fact, at this writing Mr.
Farmer is reported as not being fully
conscious, and grave fears are enter
tained for his ultimate safety. Mr.
Farmer is a brother of Mrs. Johnson
A. Porter, of this city.
Mrs. John Harry, a granddaughter
of Mr. Farmer, living between Monte
zuma and Maleom. was buried yes
terday after a brief illness following
the birth of a child that lived but a

Three of Commissioners Chosen Not
Antagonistic to New Form of City
O an id at Id
tified With "City Hall Crowd" is
Matins, for Mayor.
Special to Times-Republican.
Pes Moines. April 1.—In spite of all
claims lo the contrary, an analysis of
the results of the cit\ election in l)es
Moines, the tirst under the commission
plan, held .Monday, cannot be construed
as a victory for the "old city hall poli
licians," as some would have the pub
lie believe. One statement has been
made that "the old city hall politicians
and their organization and followers
exercised tremendous lnlluence. They
were opposed to the Des Moines plan,
but they practically captured all the
and will govern the city lor two
The statement last quoted is perhaps
as accurate as most things political
that appear In the columns from which
it is taken. Mac Vicar. Ilamcry and
Schrumm, three of the commissioners
elected, and a majority of the commis
sion are known to have favored the
adoption of the commission plan and
did everything they could to secure its
adoption. Ex-Mayor John MacVicar
has been accused of being a politician,
but no one ever claimed that, lie is In
working sympathy or any other kind of
sympathy, with the city hall politi
cians. It was because he refused to
work with "the gang" that he was de
feated for mayor the last time he ran.
Alderman John L. Hamery is aJd
crinan now from the First ward, but it
is utter fol de rol to say that he is one
of the city hall gang. Me has been in
the minority and at cross purposes
with them ever since he was elected.
He started on his career as an alder
man by going Into a saloon and taking
a glass -of whisky away from a police
man who was breaking the city rules
by drinking while 011 duty. He smashed
all the rules of the city hall politicians
by having witnesses in hiding to see
him bribed by the manager of the
street railway, and then tiling an in
formation against the manager for
bribing a public official, before a jus
tice of the peace, and the last thing he
did was to show up the rottenness of
the board of public works in the city
hall by disclosing undeniable evidence
that the board was paying for side
walks that were never laid.
Charles W. Schramm, another of the
successful candidates for commission
er, is now assessor. No one having a
seinLllla of sense would class Schramm
with the city hall politicians. He has
been elected year after year as assess
or on his record of trying to force the
public service corporations to pay their
just taxes and last year succeeded.
None of the major faction of the city
hall politicians would ever do so fool
ish a thing as attempt to make a
public service corporation pay any
The only many who could be classed
with the city hall politicians is the
successful candidate for mayor. He is
a democrat but was elected police
judge with the assistance of republi
can votes, otherwise he would not
have been elected and those republi
can votes came from the city hall poli
ticians. iBut the three men MacVicar,
Hamery and Schramm make a majority
of the new commission. All favored
the commission plan and all are clean
men. politically and morally.
The real issue in the campaign was
not between the friends of the Des
Moines plan and its enemies but be
tween the public service corporations
and the people and the city hall poli
ticians. Tt was a three-cornered fight.
In the primary election just one of the
old city hall politicians was elected.
This was Alderman Brereton. All
others were defeated for the nomina
tion. Having all been eliminated but
one in the primary the election was
largely a question between the corpor
ations and the people. It is generally
known that the street railroad and
the. public service corporations gener
ally tried to elect Mathis. Ash and
Brereton. They succeeded in electing
two of them. Had they elected the
other they would ha.ve had a majority
on the city council. The candidates
nominated frgm the slate were some
of them good men. Worth and Hanna
who were candidates for commissioner,
are classed as excellent men. and Wat
erbury. the candidate for mayor, is at
least'the equal of the successful can
