Observations by Courier Readers
Who Cross the Paths of the
Interviewers. 4
"The condition of roads in my
neighborhood means the taking away
of a portion of the rural mail serv
ice," said J. Hyde today. Mr. Hyde
operates a small coal mine in the
country some three and a half miles
north of Ottumwa on rural route No.
5. and has been a stickler for good
roads for some time. "I have with
other neighbors dragged the road and
have spread cinders to better the
condition," said lie, "but no good last
ing results have come from our ef
forts. However, it does no good to
complain to the road supervisor.
"I do not center the blame on the
read supervisor, August Johnson, for
he has obtained as good results as
his predecessors. I have complained
to him and always received the an
swer that there was no money to do
the work with. It is now high time
that the people cf that neighborhood
should take some steps to see why the
work can not be done on the roads
and that they be put in better condi
tion. The taking off of six miles of
rural mail service may prove an in
centive to those affected to do some
thing toward obtaining the desired re
"As the fault does not seem to be
with the road supervisor, it must be
with the system the county has of at
tending to the roads. If this is the
case I believe that the farmers resid
ing in the neighborhood along route
No. 5 should take the matter up to the
end that relief be had. I am glad to
see the road question taken tip by the
commercial club at Ottumwa and
know from experience that much good
can result from dragging the roads.
If the farmers throughout the county
and especially in such districts as my
neighborhood will take to dragging
the roads, or the county expend a sum
to assist the work we will begin an
era of better highways."
"It is with a keen realization of the
thanks due them, that I desire to ex
press to those who so kindly assisted
the Open Door Rescue Mission in pro
viding for the poor of the city Thanks
giving day" said Superintendent John
Astra this morning. "We delivered
into the appreciative hands of twenty
six families, bushel' baskets filled with
good stuffs for their Thanksgiving
meal, and this was made possible
though the liberal donations received,
lind on behalf of the mission and my
self personali I desire to acknowledge
The gifts received."
"It was a very successful Eistedd
fod from every standpoint," stated
Prof. James Swirles, conductor of the
Ottumwa Choral society, in speaking
of the event at Albia Thanksgiving
day. "I have attended many Eistedd
fotls, but I never attended one before
where everything was contested with
such spirit. In my personal opinion
I am not in favor of .adjudication by
one man. There should be a commit
tee of three adjudicators. I feel that
the one unfair part of the whole pro
ceedings was the adjudication in the
church choir competition. The Trin
ity choir gave a proper rendition and
was entitled to the prize. I do not
feel so bad about, losing the prize as
I do about the unfairness in the com
petition of the Williamsburg choral
society in putting up a bunch of sing
ers and calling themsehes a church
choir. If we had taken along the
choice singers from Ottumwa, irre
spective of the churches, we could
have made a better showing. I think
we were entitled to the prize money

cision of Adjudicator Davies was un

Editor Courier:
In future wars fathers can say to
their sons, don't be prompt in volun
teering. Wait, the government will
pay larger bounties later, and if you
wait until the last few months of the
war, then go for a hundred days, you
will receive the same recognition in
pension and bounty laws as the vet
eran who takes part in weary marches,
perils of the siege, horrors of battle
carnage by placing himself a living
breastwork- between freedom and her
assailants. For years during the Civil
war men staid at home while hundreds
of battles were being fought, and thou
sands of soldiers shot in battle, then
volunteered for a hundred days during
the last months of the war. Most of
their hundred days' service was spent
in an excursion to and from some
peaceful camp, not a combative enemy
in a hundred miles of them. These
'latter day saints' that went from Iowa
took a steamboat ride to Memphis,
Tenn., and back, ever afterward re

Soldiers who enlisted under Lin
coln's first call for volunteers received
$100 bounty. Those who volunteered
later received not less than $300
bounty. True there was a so-called
'Equalization bounty act,' granting the
first volunteers an additional $100, but
it did not equalize by at least $100, vir
tually fining the first 100 or more for
being prompt in volunteering. After
serving the first term of three years,
and re-enlisting as veterans, if they
had been good enough soldiers to
merit promotion to a commissioned
officer, and received the promotion,
the unpaid part of veteran bounty was
stopped. The court of claims having
decided Dec. 21, 1903 that 'the honor
of being a commissioned officer,
coupled with the emoluments attach
ed thereto was deemed sufficent to in
duce veterans to accept the honor in
lieu of bounty.' Honor! Holy Moses!
a veteran soldier did not have to be
promoted to get honor. He was chuck
full of honor. Honor hung on all the
bushes about the veteran. The woods
was full of honor. With musket in
hand the veteran made honor. He was
a manufacturer of honor. Everything
about him was made to honor the man
behind the gun. There is honor in all

"The Courier is a great newspaper," I eision to withhold that
said R. Williams, of Olivet, who spent
Thanksgiving in the city with his
daughters, Mrs. A. Long, 604 West
Second street, and Mrs. John Freder
icksou, .230 Holt street. Mr. Williams
has been a correspondent for the
Courier, as well aa for a number of
other Iowa papers, for years. "I read
a large number of daily papers," he
said, "and I have been reading them
for years. I have been immensely
pleased to see the Courier keeping in
the forefront. I like the way the Cour
ier grasps the importance of the big
news events and features them. I
always feel assured that when there
is a big story the Courier will have it
in full." Mr. Williams, who was ac
companied by his wife, returned home
yesterday afternoon.
positions in active military life. In
cases of veterans who were promoted
during their second term of service not
one of them elected to accept honor in
lieu of residue of bounty. They had
earned their commission by long serv
ice. They were competent drill mas
ters, capable of commanding soldiers
in action knew drill regulation, etc.,
thoroughly. Their services were worth
more than honor.
The decision of the court of claims
would appear all right for early vol
enteer officers, who knew nothing
about drill regulations and active
campaigning. Officers like those who
commanded at Bulls Run should have
had their bounties cut off legs cut off
also. Some of them did not stop run
