To Come Up in Traer at Opril Term
of Court.
Special to Times-Republican.
Traer, April 9.—The suit of J. T.
Findley against Richard Ferreter has
once more been set for the April term
of court. About a year ago, Mr. Find
ley brought suit against Mr. Ferreter,
who was then a tenant on the plain
tiff's farm, claiming that he had failed
to keep and penform certain covenants
provided dn the lease, and had allowed
the ^buildings and improvements to be
come dilapitated, all to the damage of
the plaintiff, in the sum of $170. Mr.
Ferreter was about to move to Cana
da, and refused to pay the claim. The
plaintiff then had a writ of attachment
issued out of the office of the clerk
•of Tama county. garnisheeing the
First National Bank of Dvsart. in
which bank defendant had funds to the
amount of several thousand dollars.
After the filing of plaintiff's petition,
and .prior to the issuance of the writ
of attachment, the plaintiff filed an at
tachment bond wherein he undertook
and agreed "to pay all damages which
the said Richard Ferreter may sustain
'iv reason of the wrongful suing out
saiid attachment."
The defendant then filed a counter
L'liarn against the plaintiff in the sum
of $1,000 and costs, claiming that he
had been greatly damaged by losing
the convenience and use of his money.
Several Animals on Frank Pysney
Farm Near Otis Must Be Killed.
Cedar Rapids, April 9.—Dr. J. W.
Griffith, assistant state veterinary
surgeon, received word over the tele
phone from the Frank Pysney farm
near Otis that a horse on the place
was showing signs of rabies. Dr.
Griffith at once took the matter up
with Mayor Carmody and the mem
bers of the commission, and as a re
sult the entire body drove down to the
They found that it was a hog, how
ever, instead of a horse t?hat had de
veloped unmistakable signs of rabies,
and the animal was killed, making
two hogs and one cow that have now
been killed at the Pysney farm. It is
feared that a .number of other ani
mals must be killed later. They will
be watched very closely.
Immediately upon their return to
the city. Mayor Carmody instructed
Marshal Crozer to carry out the order
of Dr. Griffith to the letter and see
that every dog in the city not muzzled
or tied up was exterminated. Mr. Cro
zer got busy at once, and went out in
search of dog catchers. He announced
that there were jobs open at the po
lice station for half a dozen men.
Owing to the fact that the supply of
muzzles was early exhausted, nothing
was done in regard to the enforcement
of the order. Owing to the alarming
developments of the past few days,
however, it has been determined to
take no further chances, and the cru
sade against unmuzzled dogs running
at large will be on in earnest at once.
It is the duty of every citizen to enter
into this work and assist the officers
in every way possible. A number of
dogs may have been bitten in Cedar
Rapids, and the dreadful disease may
develop at any moment. The city of
ficials are in earnest, for should any
one be bitten by a dog suffering from
rabies the city would become liable for

Fort Dodge, April 9.—Considerable
surprise was manifest in the city yes

HQunced that "Father" L. S. Coffin, the
w*ell known Iowa philanthropist, and
hibition ticket, had been married to
Mrs. Nellie Ingals, formerly connected
with the industrial school at Eldora,
but later of Detroit, Mich. The cere
mony took place at the home of the
bride, at Detroit.
"Father" Coffin left the city the lat
ter part of the past week, and before
departing, announced he was bound
for Detroit to spend a few days with
old friends. However, he quietly made
arrangements for a celebration of his
Suth birthday and had invited a num
ber of pioneer friends to become his
guests at dinner on Friday, at which
time he expected to introduce to them
his wife. But for the fact of his mar

been carried out to a nicety, and as
it is, the announcement conies as a
great surprise to the people of the
Hon. L. S. Coffin is one of the old
est and best known settlers of Web
ster county, Iowa, and lias been iden
tified with a greater part of the his
tory of this section of the state. He
was born in Alton, Stafford county, N.
H., April 10, 1S23. and came to this
section of he state in the winter of
1854-'F5. Previous to that time he had
attended Oberlin College and later
taught school in Gauga Seminary, the
late President Garfield and Coffin's
bride being among the pupils. Short
ly after coming here, Mr. Coffin's first
wife died, and in 1857 he was married
to Mary Chase, of Orleans county,
New York.
In 1883, Mr. Coffin was appointed by
Governor Sherman to fill the vacancy
on the railroad commission caused by
the resignation of Hon. James Wilson,
which position he filled until the ex
piration of the term in 1885, when he
was re-elected and served until 1888.
While serving in this capacity he be
gan to investigate more fully the con
ditions surrounding the railroad men
of the country, and to agitate the sub
ject of the automatic coupler and air
brake. He finally secured the enact
ment of the law requiring them to be
placed on all cars, which was passed
by the Iowa state legislature in 1888.
He also secured the enactment of the
national law which was passed by
congress March 2, 1893. In 1890 he
founded a home for infirm and dis
abled railroad men at Highland Park,
near Chicago, and during the past sev
eral years has conducted a home on
his magnificent farm near this city
for paroled convicts, patterning to a
large extent after the work done by
Mrs. Booth. He has been a most suc
cessful man in life, and notwithstand
ing his advanced age spends a great
on the Galena and Iowa division of
the Chicago & Northwestern as postal
clerk. Of late years he was in the un
tiettaking business in Clinton. He was
the lamer oC a family, all living in
eastern Iowa.
The development of factionalism
and strife in the membership of the

ning it got tired of the "kicking" of an
opposing faction, and it was generally
agreed that the corporation should be
dissolved. The paid-in capital will be
returned in full.
The last issue of the Clarion Mon

total shows an expenditure of $75,000.

people of the place. The feature is
very creditable to he management of
the paper and certainly should have

with having used language unbecom

was well able to defend herself, for she

had evidently anticipated trouble, for

Proves That Beeent Attacks
Were Without Foundation
Even the Science Department. Which
Bore Brunt of the Attack, is Con­
spicuous for Its Christian Instruc­
tors Statements Made, by Des
Moines Ministers Refuted.
Special to Times-Republican.
Iowa City. April 9.—The recent at
tacks on the university, on account of
alleged tendencies to infidelity oil the
part of certain of the instructors in the
school, are the subject of much con
demnation on the part of the members
of the faculty and of the local minis
try of. this city. The men who made
the attacks were evidently lacking sta
tistics of the matter, and speaking
from mere hearsay premises, for a
careful canvass of the religious condi
tions of the school does not bear out
the statements of the Des Moines min
isters. but on the contrary, refute them
very decideiy.
Out of about 2.200 students in the
university at the present time, 2,027
have either expressed themselves in
favor of a certain religious denomina
tion. or as active church members. Of
this number, 1,313 are actual com
municants in some Christian church.
Of about 200 members of the faculty
of the institution, not one, so far as
can be learned, is inclined to atheism.
President McLean himself is a re
tired Presbyterian minister. The sci
ence department, which bore the brunt
of the attack on the part of the Des
Moines divines, is conspicuous for its
Christian instructors, and many of
these make a distinct effort to recon
cile the teachings of science with those
of Christianity. The same is true of the
department of philosophy. The depart
ment: of psychology, as an instance, is
repeatedly called on by the local min
istry to lend its aid in a special study
of the gospels. Every one of the nine
deans of the different colleges in the
university is actively connected with
some church. A carefully compiled
statement by Dr. Stearns, who has
made a special study of the matter in
the larger universities of the country,
shows that Iowa has the largest num
ber of professing Christians among its
students of any school in the United
States. In view- of these statistics, tho
members of the university are inclined
to question the good faith of the par
ties ivho made the statements, and to
at least insist that they were sadly
lacking in a knowledge of the condi
tions, both at Iowa and in other uni
