lows: This morning one conference
was held. This afternoon another
meeting is to be held at the court
house, following which the answer of
the board and the objections to Kit
terman's petition will be filed if it is
decided to fight the case.
Board Will Fight.
"There is not the slightest doubt
in the world but that the board will
fight the case," said County Attorney
Seneca Cornell at noon today. ''I
do not believe that the law applies to
such a case as this where both of the
parties concerned are old soldiers.
One of the members of the board
when asked for a statement was a
trifle more conservative. He said:
"We are to hold another conference
this afternoon and while I will not
say positively that we will decide to
fight the case instituted by Kitter
man, it now seems uat tnat will be
our ultimate decision.
Tuttle Post's Resolution.
The following is the resolution pass
ed l&at evening by the J. M. Tuttle
post of the G. A. R.
Resolutions adopted by J. M. Tui
tle Post, No. 497. Ottumwa, Iowa:
Whereas, the newspapers re
cently published a statement to
the effect that Cloutman Post, G.
A. R., of this city or seme
members of this post while in session
had taken action of some kind in way
of protesting1 agajnst the action of the
board of supervisors appointing "Chas.
H. Dorothy as Janitor of the court
house, claiming that such appointment
was against the rights of old soldiers.
Whereas, it has been rumored that
certain members of said Cloutman
Post charged that Comrade Dorothy
was not an old soldier, or that there
Supervisor Wilson joined with Su
pervisor Reinier in voting for Dorothy
was some stain upon his character and
record as such.
Now, therefore, be it resolved by
this Tuttle Post, No. 497. G. A. R., of
Ottumwa, Iowa,
we deeply regret
this reported action and this rumored
expression, knowing that a great in
justice has been done to Comrade Dor
othy. We thus publicly record that
Comrade Dorothy is a member of this
Post in goo dstanding, that when a
mere boy he responded to the cal,
our great President Lincoln and volun
teered in Company K, Forty-seventh
Iowa Infantry, volunteers under Cap
tain William H. P. Norris, and was
honorably discharged on the 20th day
of September. 1864.
Resolved further that we take pleas
ure in publicly recording the fact that
Comrade Dorothy is an industrious, law
abiding and honorable citizen of this
city, where he has resided for many
years in our midst and that he is in
every way worthy and that his ap
pointment by the board of supervisor's
is a compliment to this pout and to the
Grand Army of the Republic.
Resolved, that we do not hereby cast
any reflections on Comrade Kittermtn
but we deplore the fact that the G. A
Thomas Morris Instantly
Killed and J. D. Hender
son Fatally Hurt When
Siruck by Cars
Eldon, Feb. 23.—(Special.) Thos.
Morris was instantly killed and J. D.
Henderson fatally injured in a rail
road accident here last night. The
two men were crossing the track near
the passenger depot when a string of
cars, being switched by the yard en
gine, struck them. The men, both of
whom resided in Eldon, failed to no
tice the cars until it was too late.
Morris' body was badly crushed and
a leg and arm were taken off. He was
dead when the switchmen reached
him. Morris was 30 years old and Is
survived by a wife and family, who re
side on the R. C. Jones property. He
will be buried at Bonaparte.
Henderson had both his feet cut oft
and was otherwise injured about the
body. He was removed to the drug
store in the opera house building,
where a surgeon attended him. He is
in a critical condition and Is not ex
pected to recover. Henderson was 46
years old and resided with his wife
and family at Ninth and Walnut
R. Post should knowingly or lgnorant
ly allow itself to be used for partisan
purposes. It is our belief that the sol
diers' preference law is In the interest
of all soldiers and was not intended to
give one comrade a life-long job to tho
exclusion of other comrades equally
worthy but that so long as the old sol
diers are preferred, the spirit of the
law has been carried out. And we be
lieve that in the appointment of Com
rade Dorothy the board of supervisors
are within the spirit and the letter of
this law.
Resolved, that a copy of these resolu
tions be furnished the board of super
visors and that a copy be furnished th«
Ottumwa Review and that a copy be
furnished the Ottumwa Courier with a
request that it publish the same so that
this matter may be placed in Its full
and true light before the public.

Adjutant. 'f
Moses C. Israel.
From Saturday's Daily.
Moses C. Israel was born near the
town of Middletown, Butler county,
Ohio, on the 20th day of November,
1820, and was therefore at the time of
his death, February 12, 1907, 86 years,
2 months and 22 days old.
He came of a family of pioneers his
father, Thomas Israel, having been
born in Culpepper county, Va., in the
year, 1777. When a young man he went
to Ohio, where he married Christina
Deem, and lived there until his family
of eleven children were born and part
ly reared, when he pushed forward to
ward the west and settled in the state
of Indiana. At the time of his removal
to the sttae of Indiana, 80 years ago,
Moses Israel was 6 years old. He lo
cated in the midst of the forest on a
stream called "Cliffty," where with the
help of his family a home was erected,
a farm cleared, and later a saw and
grist mill for the convenience of the
settlers, and the development of the
community, was built and operated by
him and his sons. Thus the youth and
early manhood of Mr. Israel was spent.
On August 22. 1844 he was married
to Ruth Brownfleld, who has been his
constant and devoted helpmate through
ail the trials, tribulations, hardships,
joys and sorrows, in sickness and in
1 ealth. for the past nearly 63 years,
who still survives hiin.
In the year 1849 he bid adieu to his
father's family, and the friends onii
reighbors of his youth and. in a jgon
drfwn by two horses, embarked wit":'!
children for the pralrios
of Iowa. After the long -ind tiresome
journey lie settled In Van Buren coun
ty. Then, in the spring of 18.r4 lie
moved on and settled on the homestead
where he has since resided and reared
his family. His life here has been as
an "open book." as those of his friends
who have passed on, have, and those
who survive will testify.
He was the last of his father's fam
ily, all of his brothers and sisters hav
ing passed on before, the last being his
brother, Joseph, who died at Bonaparte
eight years ago.
In the discharge of public duties
which he was from time to time called
upon by the people of Washington
township and Wapello county to per
form, thev were marked with honesty,
fidelity and faithfulness to his trust.
I-Ie was devoted to his family and
friends, ready to sacrifice anything
that would add to their present and
future oemfort. thus for the time being
forgetting his own.
His religious career began in August,
1847. when he joined the Mt. Moriah
Baptist church. Upon his removal to
Iowa he withdrew from Mount Moriah
and deposited his letter with the Mt.
Zion church in Van Buren county,
where he retained his membership un
til the organization of the Ashland
Baptist church in the old town of Ash
land in the building then used as a
seminary, January 31, 1857.
The wife and five children survive
him. J. A. Israel of Denver, Colo. R.
T. Israel of Salida. Colo: Mrs. Mary
Nicholson. H. J. Israel and George P.
Israel of Eidon, are the surviving chil
dren. The interment was made in the
Ashland cemetery. Funeral services
were conducted by Rev. Riegan, assist
ed by Jacob Ferrden and L. C. Allen

The children were all present except
Robert Ti Israel of Salida, Colorado.
The pall4bearers were J. N. Cain, J. C.
