—As a rule. Northern people travel
ing in the Mouth, are treated courteous
ly. The New IL.ven Palladium re
cites a case where “liefo’ de wall" tactics
seem to have prevailed. The story in
brief is that Mr. Thomas J. Morrow
and wife, of Brooklyn. N. Y„ were
traveling in the South, and Itad got as
far as the railroad between Mont
gomery and Mobile, Alabama. In the
car with them were a negro preacher
ami his wife. The conductor ordered
them into the smoking-car. The
preacher asked Morrow to interfere.
He proceeded to do so, and the con
ductor proceeded to curse him and de
nounce all Northern people. The
Palladium says
Finally when the conductor bad assured Mr.
Morrow that hr should ye* be made to "eat the
dust." the ruffian retired. When the train
reached Mobile. Mr. and Mrs. Morrow secured a
room at the Haiti- House. Shortly after, while
passing through the hotel ennider. Mr. Morrow
was suddenly attacked froai behind, thrown
upoa the Sunr. kicked, aad severely beaten

When the man had completed his assault he

serted. "when I pay the fine it will be imme
diately handed back to me." Though severely
injured. Mr. Morrow persevered In getting his
asanilaat arrested. Ihe fine aaaoaaccd was #26
Much ruffianism will doubtless be
condemned by the best people of the
Month. But the authorities of Mobile
and the officials of the railroad seem to
have considered the offense of the con
ductor a mild one.— lnter Ocean

THF HERALD: MAHASKA COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1885.
THE OREGON EXCURSION.
Return or the lowa Editors From
the Grand Toir op Nebraska,
Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon and
Washington Territory.
On June 9, the lowa Press Associa
tion. according to call, met at the Un
ion Pacific Transfer Hotel, at Council
Bluffs, and in a short time all were duly
ticketed for the excursion of eighteen
days in the wonder-laud of America.
Five Pullman sleeping cars-of the very
best tost Supt. Bennett had m his charge
—were given to the party—each one tic
ing in charge of a member of the Ex
ecutive Committee—the “Senegal” in
charge of the Preaident; the "Boise
City" in charge of Matt Parrott; the
“Minnesota’* in charge of Ralph Robin
son; the “ Dalles City " in charge of Dr.
McClelland, and the “Michigan" in
charge of C. D. Thurman. Mr. W. I*.
Cole was tbe Pullman conductor in
charge, who proved to be a most for
tunate detail. At 12 M„ the train pulled
out of the transfer, and soon wc were
crossing tbe turbulent Missouri ou one
of the grandest railway bridges on the
continent. At Omaha we took on the
railway gentlemen who were to act as
our escort- Mr. T. W. Blackburn,Chief
Clerk of the Passenger Departuieut of
the Union Pacific Railroad, and Mr.
Hoyt Sherman, jr., special ageut of the
same road, whose services to the party
were many and always of the greatest
value.
(Mr. Swal-n returned home Monday,
and in this sketch it is his intention to
simply say where the party went, brief
ly what they saw. reserving for the
future, matter* of much importance to
be treated topically in the weeks to
come.) The ride over the l»eautiful
Nebraska country known as the Platte
Valley, new to very many of the party,
was one of thorough enjoy tuei»_ At
Grand Island supper was taken, and
the citizens there offered the courtesies
of a ride through their thrifty city.
The night ride brought us early to
Cheyenne. Wyoming.—a committee of
leading citizens having met the train
forty miles east. On arrival, rides were
arranged, and the "city of the foot hills"
well examined. But Cheyenne, with
its great stock interests, is set down for
more thorough consideration in tbe
future. The next great point of inter
est was the
ASCENT TO SHERMAN PEAK
-IyMO feet altitude—at which point a
great granite monument, pyramid in
shape, has been erected, to the memory
of Oakes and Oliver Ames. Dr. Magoun.
who knew one of these enterprising
men personally, was invited to bristly
address the party, which he did. One
of the readiest speakers, his remarks
were eloquent and to the point. After
ward the party was “bunched" and
photographed, making a picture great
ly in demand by the party on our re
turn trip. Thence on to Laramie—a
committee from that place having met
us at Sherman. An examination was
given to an immense deposit of glauber
salts.which is being manufactured into
commercial soda. There is an sadism
deposit of this article twelve miles out
—but of which anon. Over the
latranue plains, with its thousands up
on thousands of cattle, aud plenty of
deer and antelope, we rolled in comfort
and luxury—taking a breakfast at
Green River that certainly was perfec
tion in variety and cookery. At
Granger we switched off on
THE OKIOOX SHORT LINE,"
and liear away northwest through a
valley country of varied beauty and
constant interest. The outlying ranges
of mountains were yet partially cov
ered with snow, which, com|>ared with
the deep green of the pine; au*l Ills
made a picture of lasting l>eauty. On
through a country which is largely oc
cupied by Mormons, we stop at Pocatel
lo—-a junction of the Utah Northern
ami the .short Line- the first being a
narrow gauge road, coming from Salt
Ijike to Northern Idaho. Mr. Harding,
President of the Idaho Press Associie
tion. here met the party, on tiehalf of
his Association, and escorted us on our
further journey in Idaho. Shoshone
was our next stopping place, when we
rested from midnight until morning,
and breakfasted on tender steak, and
mountain trout. At nine o’clock
we took the Wood river branch, and
went up to the towns of Bellevue,
Hailey and Ketchum—Mr. Harding
and the railroad escort jointing out all
objects of interest, of which the num
ber was almost countless. At Ketchum
the first demonstration took place-re
sulting in the presentation of the keys,
with the freedom of the city. An ex
amination of the great smelting works
followed, and hospitality, open and un
bounded. Hailey, in the evening, to
which place the train returned, was the
scene of great festivity, ending with a
grand reception at the court-room.
Again of these hereafter. The-, we
rolled onward through the lava beds
up to Caldwell, where we get into the
Snake river country. At Huntington
we connect with the Oregon Railway
and Navigation Company’s line, and at
the Dalles are very handsomely break
fasted by the people. Then we had
some talk, in which the party was wel
comed finely and a proper response
made. Here the first view of that glo
rious, grand, snow-capped mountain—
Hood—was had—a sight never to be
forgotten. Here a committee of the
Portland press, under the lead of that
veteran of Oregonian journalism, lion."
H. K. Robinson, of the Orsf wfsa. met
the party and gave us all needed in
formation touching the city, and
the coming tour. Passing all the
noble scenery of the upper Co
lumbia, inspired and confounded
by its grandeur, we arrived at
Portland Sunday afternoon at two
o’clock. It was too late for church, so
the afternoon was put in driving over
the fine streets of the northwest me
tropolis. and preparing for the journey
on the morrow-meanwhile doing
Chinatown, and becoming more and
more convinced that the Mongolian
was indeed a curse toour Pacific friends.
But of Portland later. At one o’clock
we took special coaches for Tacoma.
Washington territory, and arrived
there on time-taking the steamer
George L Starr at once for Seattle,
where we arrived at 11 p. m. The city
was very handsomely illuminated, ami
presented a picture that but few sea
girth cities can ever present We were
apportioned out to the several hotels,
and all were housed in comfort by mid
night. Drives over the city in the
morning until nine o'clock, when the
party, on two small steamers, sailed
iver the sound to Port Blakely, where
our Seattle friends had arranges! a
clam hake on generous coast-wise pro
portions. It wes a great feast, and our
time due at Tacoma only compelled
severance of the ties that were abound
ing in greatest pleasure. But .Seattle
deserves, and shall have a chapter to
itself. Returning to Tacoma at
five we took especial train ap the Pn
yaUap Valley-a region ureal in bop
arrowing *M fruit. The hop-king of

THE TOI R.
a dozen miles from the road, sent over
a great basket of fragrant roses and
button-bole bouquets, tog“ther with a
box of strawberries all nearly as large
as plums. These were passed around,
and all were delighted with the fruit,
and none tbe less with the compli
ments tendered. Reluming to Port
land on sj*cial train. Wednesday even
ing, the party weuttothe sleeping car*,
and at seven o’clock started on tbe
southward tour of 341 miles, taking in
first the great Williamette Valley. Gov.
Moody, of Oregon, and other men of
prominence, met the party at Portland,
and escorted it to Salem, where, after
the couutry was »eei» by a fine drive, a
banquet was spread in the capitol, by
the Salem ladies, and it was indeed a
feast. The writer has special reason to
retuemlier Salem, foi it was here that
he was surprised by Dr. Magoun, who.
on liehalf of the Association, pi rented
him with a very handsome and valu-'
able gold watch and chain, suitably in
scribed. It was an ovation here; so it
was down the valley at Eugene City, at
Ashland, at Medford, where Jackson
ville came over in force; at Grant’s
Pass, at Albany, at Corvallis, at Mc-
Minnville—everywhere there being an
unbounded hospitality and generous
welcome. It was unex]iected in every
way, and came with a spontaneous out
burst that captured the whole outfit.
We passed three days of great pleasure
in the country covered by the Oregon
and California companey’s lines; saw
some of the lovliest valleys that the
sun shines upon, abounding in prosper
ity, groaning with great crops of grain,
and fruit such as would have made the
hearts of our prince of horticulturists
rejoice; towns rich in prosperity; homes
of comfort and elegance; churches and
school-houses for all—such is the pic
ture as we found it. and if you add rapid
streams, toweriug pines, snow-clad
mountains, a balmy climate, and cheer
ful, open-hearted hospitality, you have
an impression of southern Oregon as
we saw it —with nearly two hundred
pairs of eyes. Saturday evening the
Portland Board of Trade gave the
party a general tianquel, a.*d of that
anon. The next trip was taken to As
toria, on the way taking in the Salmon
Canning Factory of J. G. Megler ACo~
at Brookfield, and the whole process
was goue through with. Returning to
Portland. Monday was spent sight-see
ing and getting ready for the home
ward journey. At six we started east
ward, by special went through
to Dayton. W. T, where a splendid
breakfast awaited us. and a greeting
that could not la* surpassed. Retum
at 11 A. M., we arrived at Walla Walla,
where tlo* entire party took carriages
and saw the country to good advantage.
The wheat fields are endless, and of an
unsurpassed quality — many farms
promising as high as fifty bushels to
the acre. At this place, Messrs. T. W.
Blackburn and Hoyt Sherman, jr., who
were the Union Pacific representatives,
were each presented with silver tea
sets and tableware, as a slight mark of
appreciation on the part of tlie asso
ciation for the manv favors shown to
all. Thence we came down to Umatilla
Junction, and jumped out to the south
east and homeward, arriving at Coun
cil Bluffs on time—after a tour cover
ing five thousand and six hundred
miles, during all of which good health
biased the intrtv, and all enjoyed the
pleasures afforded in a way that cer
tainly should leave lasting and happy
remembrances.
The writer may lie pardoned if he
clips the following from the I>es
Moines Register of Sunday last: “As
has been heretofore announced the
lowa threes Association returned yes
terday amt the great majority of them
are to-day enjoying the pleasure of
home life, after the completion of the
most successful excursion in the
history of the association. The an
nual meeting of the ass**ciation was
held in Sidney, Nebraska, Friday last,
at which time the following able and
efficient corps of officers were elected
for the ensuing year: President, Judge
William Toman, of ludependence;
Vice-President, John Springer, of lowa
City: Secretary A. W. Lee. of Musca
tine; Assistant Secretary, F. R. Con
way, of Brooklyn, and Treasurer. J.
If. Brainerd, of Boone. The following
committees were appointed: Executive
Committee: A. W. Smalm, Oskaiooea;
Matt Parrott. Waterloo; Dr. F i Mc-
Clelland, Cedar Rapids; Thomas Bow

“On every hand were heard the most
flattering comments on the conduct of
this year’s excursion by its officers,
and all felt themselves under deep ob
ligations to them for furnishing one of
the most pleasant experiences of their
lives. The entire trip has been singu
larity free from casualty of every de
scription. no one being injured in the
least and no one being sick beyond a
mere indisposition. Beyond the usual
amount of “kicking" that is always ex
pected at such times, no jar was expe
rienced, and many friendships were
formed that bid fair to tie lasting. The
excursion as a whole was one that
must long dwell among the most pleas
ant memories of all the participants and
one that can have but the most agree
able associations. Much of this is due
to the able management of Pr ident
Mwalm, seconded as he was by his ex
ecutive committee, and to them will
revert the minds of all the excursion
ists when the great “Oregon trip"comes
up in happy recollection. Also Messrs.
Sherman and Blackburn of the “U. P."
road were largely instrumental in fur
nishing forth the pleasures of the tour
and toward them nothing but the most
kindly feelings were exj>erienced. The
iniversal sentiment of lowa editors
seemed to be ihat, if they ever again
should go in a like excursion, they
wished nothing better than to have
these same yentlemen in charge.
“The excursion just finished has been
in poiut of numbers participating, and
extent of country visited, one of the
largest ever undertaken by any consid
erable number of journalists. Over
two hundred people gathered ia Council
Bluffs at the time appointed, ready for
a trip over live thousand miles in ex
tent, and to lasi a period of three weeks.
A special train, consisting of five palace
cars, one day coach, baggage car and

—The Register says: “The lowa Ed
itorial Excursionists have completed
their grand tour of three weeks, and
arrived home Saturday. They trav
eled six thousand miles, and found
abundant welcome every place they
went. They say of the new country
that they visited as tbe Queen of She
ba said of Solomon, “that the half had
not been told," and all of them return
with rapturous praise of the new lauds
and grateful praise of tbe new peoples
they met. The long journey was made
without a jar or break. The most per
fect arrangements had been made for
it in advance, and it was a great task
thus to have planned so great an un
dertaking so wisely. This was the
good and faithful work of Mr. Albert
W. Swalm, President of the Associa
tion, and he did it with consummate
skill. It takes as much executive abil
ity to plan and execute a tour as this
as it does to run a State government.
Mr. Swalrn was equal to it, displaying
iu it again the remarkable abilities
which had already made themselves so
much known to tbe State. Very nat
urally all those who were on the jour
ney are very grateful to Mr. Swalm.
and all the rest of us can congratulate
him on the happy success that followed
in all his plans."

MR. BROWN'S OPPORTUNITY.
OUUM Roister.
It is unquestionably true that Gov.
Sherman's letter on the facts as to the
suspension of Auditor Brown has
strengthened the Governor in the State.
Before he had spoken, and when he had
so long kept silence, that no one knew
the real strength or weakness of his
position, he bad begun to lose support
—ss after Mr. Brown had filed his two
affidavits and the Governor neither ac
cepted of them nor said what he would
accept, nearly all support had fallen
awav from him, only two or three
papers in the State adhering to any de
fense of bis position. The whole State
felt that be should act on what Brown
offered, or tell what he would act upon
and the public loai patience with him
txcauae be did neither, and seemed
resolutely disposed to do nothing. But
the full and explicit statement* of his
letter giving his reasons in detail, and
summing up the situation as he sees it,
have made a decided impression on the
State and on the press, and changed the
drift of opinion, which had set in for
Brown, back into the Governor's favor.
The press, as a general thing, see noth
ing in what the Governor says Brown
must do to be reinstated that anv of
ficial may not perform, and should not
promptly perform. It is a demand
tsimpiy that he shall swear to and verify
Che account* and records of his office
-certainly nothing that is hard for an
official who knows that he condacted
his properly to do. It is difficult
to see, in fact, any material difference
in what Brown offered in his affidavit*
and what the Governor requires that
he shall do, except that Mr. Brown
naked the State to so* hiss for the
money for the bank fere, aad the Gov
ernor says heshaii deposit that money
in the State Treasury, lhas leaving ft
for him and not the Slate to m to
establish Its ownership The situation
has now changed. Fix a Warn time it
waa the Governor who would do nosh
ing, and remained inert* and almost
aulleaiy silent as well. He kwt so
largely with the public In that time as
dHTSe nearly all Mow he tew
msfwmgfA
ffitkeTM Tm£l *whatbe will do, Tfe£
people are unable to see how, if he has
already made the accounting that the
Governor demands, as be says he has,
be is not willing to swear to it and
verify it—as that is all he has to do
to be returned to this office. Because
he does not either accept tbe conditions
imposed by tbe Governor, nor say
wlierem they are at fault, be is now
looked upon as the one who is delaying
in tbe matter, and preventing tbe
settlement of tbe controversy. Tbe
people feel now that tbe Governor,
after a too long silence, is ready to act,
and as a consequence the tide of
opinion has turned to his favor just as
it had turned to Brown a few days ago.
Bat it is to be hoped that tbe Governor
will not consider tbe changed ex
pression of the public now in his favor
as showing any disposition to keep
Brown out of his office, or to encourage
anything which would delay for one
day bis restoration thereto, it means
that the public want to see the matter
settled according to the law, but that
they will have no patience either with
the Governor or the Auditor if either
shall take a course to delay it one hour
longer than is absolutely necessary—
and the Governor can easily and will
quickly loose the benefft of the feeling
now changing to his favor if he should
defer iu the least, or to delay in the
least, from accepting that which he has
said Mr. Brown has only to do to re
gain his office. It is Mr. Brown’s oppor
tunity. Every day he is kept out of of
fice now he keeps himself out. For no
fair intelligent person is able to see
anything in the conditions stated by
the Governor which any official may
not accept and should not be willing to
swear to as soon as asked.
