FROM OVER THE COUNTY.
THE UKIiALD'S CORPS OK SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS GO APTEB THE NEWS IN MAHASKA, AND HEBE IS WHAT THEY KIND CEDAR. As the camp meeting has been men tioned in The Herald and Globe, if you will be so Bind as to publish it 1 will give my experience or a different side irom wtial nas been given. B.S. Taylor’s sermon Sunday atternoon was the hist 1 beard and the one that has caused so many remarEs. He drew such a picture of myself and how I was like tue oig baby, his wife left at home with the girl auo how he kept the whole house awake and what a time she had with him the hrst night. I thought I was a man but 1 concluded 1 had been a big baby and that our church had several in it and that we all needed weaning and right then and there 1 resolved to quit crying for my old bot tle ana eat food and 1 went to the alter and 1 have felt no craving for the same old bottle since. And 1 hope the class leaders and preachers will get to sleep a little better so tar as one baby is con - cerned at least. 1 went to the meeting opposed to the doctrine taught there; i had the scales taken away,! see things differently and feel differently. When Naaman was dipped in Jordan and his flesh became as a little childs, did he know he was changed ? When ciaul went to Damas cus breathing out his vengeance, when he was stopped did he know it? So I say to all: The camp meeting was a Jordan to me; and B. 6. Taylor and J. G. Barton were the prophets and my wife, as the servant that had faith in God’s power to cleanse,as she said; u one thing thou lackest.” i had been saying are not the chuiches at Cedar and Kirk ville and the regular ministers just as good or better than all the Taylors and holiness people of Israel? When my will consented to do anything or go any where theu 1 became as a little child in my feelings toward others, and I am conscious of the fact. The camp meet ing was a Beulah land to me; if we live we will be there next year and what seemed to offend many was as honey to me, yea, sweeter thau the honey comb; and the remembrance of that sermon will go with me through ail eternity and that week at camp meeting will be the mount of transhguration to me. 1 am down with the multitude now.

The Democrats.—Saturday evening our Democratic friends had their blow out over the victory of the saloon, arid they bad a loud old time, with bang! bang and toot! and Roman candles in a muchness. Mr.Leedom strung many electric lights through the park, and it was made handsome. The stand was also nicely decorated. Some of the banners In the procession were unique. The orthography betrayed the handiwork of the authors. “Boies speach done it’’ was one. “Are we on the road to perdition, Brother Teter?” was another. We do not know whether Brother Teter would give this up as a conundrum or not. A dozen boys aged from Bto 12 rode in a wagon from the Second ward where so surprisingly large a vote was polled. They carried a banner with this device: “Our fath ers voted and so did Wee.” We wonder if those iittle chaps did vote in the Second ward.

The fellow was standing in front of the tub of sbiney water in which cigar wrappers are soaked and down he went as pretty as u please to the bottom of the tub. The young fellow bad to borrow an overcoat to go homeinnder, and hereafter will wear his high water pants in place of his Bunday suit when he goes o Howar’s again. Eh, Fuller!. SAYS HE'S A THIEF Downfall of a Prominent Physician in Wisconsin. Dr. C. N. Palmer, of Raymond, Pleads Guilty to the Charge of Burglary Opium’s Victim. a doctor’s crime Racine, Wis., Nov. 11. —“I am guil ty, your honor,” said Dr. Charles N. Palmer, when arraigned before Judge Fish on Monday on the charge of rob bing the store of Postmaster Chris tianson. of Raymond. The wretched prisoner then burst into tears and sat down, covering his face with his hands. The afternoon of Sunday, August 9, this city was electrified by the an nouncement that Dr. Palmer, one of the best known and influential men in southern Wisconsin, had been arrested on a charge of burglary. The friends of the doctor could not believe that there could be any foundation for the serious charge, or that a man of his standing could be guilty of such a crime. The doctor lived in the vil lage of Raymond, and the man who brought this charge against him was Postmaster Christianson of the same place. E’or several months the postmaster had been missing goods from his store, which he conducts in connection with the post office. Re tried every means to catch the thief without avail. Finally he decided to watch in the store, and in company with a man named Frederickson kept nightly vigil. Two weeks went by and do one came near the place. They had about decided to give up when on the night of August 8, a little after midnight, as they were sitting be hind a desk in the store, they heard a key grate in the lock of the door and a moment later were astonished to see Dr. Palmer enter and flash a dark lan tern about the place. In their excite ment at this discovery they attempted to leave and call other witnesses, but in the effort made a noise and the doc tor took flight. The postmaster at cnce came to tins city and swore out a war rant charging the doctor with entering his store with burglarious intent. A Mental Wreck. The doctor protested his innocence, and his friends were indignant at what they considered a scheme to ruin the doctor's reputation. However, the dark lantern was found near the doctor’s yard, as well as the false key with which he had gained entrance to the store. Both the men who were in the store swore positively that they saw the doctor plainly and had not made a mistake. In spite of the fact that the evidence was over whelmingly against the doctor his friends were slow to be lieve that he was guilty, but as the conviction gradually forced itself upon them that there was no escape they had the court appoint physicians to inquire into his mental condition, and, while they pronounced him sane, testifiea that the man was continually under the influence of opiates and ap parently a physical and mental wreck. The penalty for the crime is from one to five years in the penitentiary. Given a Year at Hard Labor. When court opened for the morning session Dr. Palmer was brought before Judge Fish to receive his sentence. His wife was at his side and she told the court how her husband was addicted to the opium habit and that at his request she had administered him morphine and chloral in quantities that would kill an ordinary man. Two physicians also testified that they had given him heavy doses of opiates without effect and that he was a physical and mental wreck from the use of opium. Judge Fish commanded the guilty man to arise, and in pronouncing sen tence said it was the saddest case tbal he had ever known. A mao whose reputation had hitherto been untarnished, he thought, could not have been himself when he stooped to such a low crime. He hoped that with the minimum penalty imposed the doctor might be restored to his former self, and that, bethought, would in part compensate for the stigma of incarcer ation. He then sentenced him to one year in the penitentiary at hard labor. On receiving the sentence the prisoner said: “I thank your honor for the leniency,” and then bowed his head on his wife’s shoulder aud both wept bit terly. He was taken to the penitentiary at once. The life of Dr. Palmer up to the time he committed the crime was an honorable one. He was a prominent politician; he was an elector on the republican presidential ticket in 1888, member of the medical hoard of pen sion examiners and a central figure at all conventions. He is a graduate of Rush medical college, and enjoyed a lucrative practice at the west end of the county. He is a son of N. H. Palmer, a Waterford merchant, who was for twelve years the warden of the penitentiary at Waupun, where his son will undoubtedly put on the prison garb within a short time. •200,000 ltlaze In Philadelphia.

At ty-Gen. Miller Announces in Court ‘that tlie Question Will Be Submitted to Arbitration. Washington, Nov. 11, — The hearing of the Behring sea sealeries case in the supreme court was resumed at 10:30 a. m. A tty.-Gen. Miller interrupted Sol.citor-Gen. Taft during the course of his remarks to announce that it had been agreed to submit the controversy between the United States and Eng land as to the seal fisheries to arbitra tion, and that the official announce ment of that fact would soon be made. This now celebrated case arises out of the seizure of the Canadian sealer W. P. Sayward in Behring sea for vio lation of the act of congress making it a penalty to catch seals within the waters of Behring sea. The vessel was libeled under the admiral ty laws of the United States and after trial the United States district court of Alaska declared a for feiture of the vessel. The case was then brought to this court on a motion for a writ of prohibition to stop the Alaskan court from taking measures to enforce the decree, the ground for this motion being a contention that the court had no jurisdiction to try the of fense. for the reason that it was com mitted more than 3 miles from shore, under the law of nations, without the jurisdic tion oJL jths United States. By this inJtnoa it is sought to secure an opinion from this court on the question which has been for a long time in controversy between the United States and Great Britain as to the right of the former country to exclusive control of the seal fisheries in Behring sea. BRAZIL IN A FERMENT. The Province of Grao Para Declares Its Independence of Fonseca -The Country Believed to Be on the Verge of a Far- Reaching Revolution. London, Nov. ll.—A dispatch juM received here from Pernambuco says that the province of Grao Para has de clared its independence of the Brazil ian republic and that the province of Bahia is expected also to throw off the yoke of allegiance to the republic. This action is due to dissatisfaction at the assumption of dictatorial powers by President Fonseca. The dissatisfaction with Fonseca’s ac tion has been steadily growing, and since the action repudiating Fonseca at Rio Grande do Sol the revolutionary feeling has developed with startling rapidity. The general opinion is that Brazil is on the verge of a great oivil war. Rio de Janeiro, Nov. 11.—The lat est reports from Rio Grande de Sul state that the people are rioting and affairs are growing more serious. A small body of Fonseca’s troops has been attacked by the infuriated popu lace and several of the soldiers killed. Broke His Neck by a Fall. Norwalk, 0., Nov. IL—*A. J.

Two Hundred or More Persons Killed and Hundreds Injured —Heroic Female Convicts. MANY BUILDINGS DEMOLISHED. London, Nov. 11. —Further particu lars from Calcutta show that the cy clone which swept over the Andaman islands in the bay of Bengal on Mon day caused a very much larger loss of life than was at first report ed, and that the damage done was far in excess of the amount first telegraphed here. In addition to the drowning of nearly all of the crew of H. M. S. Enterprise, the gov ernment steamer engaged in convey ing the convicts to and from the settle ment, by which seventy-eight out of eighty-three men lost their lives, it is now officially announced that the total loss of life is nearly 200, and that about 250 people in addition were severely wounded. Scene of the Storm. The Andaman islands form a group in the bay of Bengal, between latitude 10 degrees and 13 degrees north, and nearly under 93 degrees ol east longi tude, about ISO miles southwest of Cape Nograis, a headia id on the coast of British Burmah. The Great and Lit tle Andaman islands compose the group and they are separated by Duncan’s passage, where a number of native coasters and fishing boats foundered or were driven ashore during the cyclone. Port Blair, on Chatham island, is the headquarters of the convict settlement, the latter being naturally the most important industrial center of the islands. It was at Port Blair that the greatest loss of life occurred, and it is believed here that when the final returns come in it will be seen that considerably over 200 and possibly 500 were victims of the cyclone's fury, for the population of Port Blair, or Blair Station is over 14.000 souls. Terror of the Convicts. The convicts who were not in| con finement. nearly all of them being East Indians, ran panic stricken here and there, seeking places of shelter, or falling prostrate upon the ground and muttering prayers, prepared to die. With the convicts in confine ment. the situation was much worse. Terror-stricken they raged like wild beasts in their efforts to free themselves and at least meet death or liberty. The guards did their utmost to release the confined convicts, hut during the awful sweep of the storm over the islands every man, woman and child there had all they could do to look after their own per sonal safety. Heroic Females. In the midst of this terrible disturb ance of nature, when the bravest and strongest men quailed withoapprehen sion, it was noticed that a building standing near the seashore had been crushed down and actually hurled into the surf by the force of the wind. Soma of the convicts confined in this building succeeded in escaping before it was blown into the water, others were drowned in spite of their efforts to escape, but nine or ten of these con victs succeeded in clambering upon the roof, from which they loudly appealed for help. The guards and others were too much occupied to be of any service to|the imperiled men. In this emergency a gang of female con victs displayed great bravery. Un daunted by the shrieking cyclone and listening only to the frantic appeals for help uttered by the men hi danger they boldly joined hands to gether in a long line, a human rope, the boldest of the women at the end facing the water, and in this manner they slowly but steadily ventured into the raging surf, and though those at the extremity of the line were fre quently sw’ept off their feet and were almost half drowned by the rushing waters they finally succeeded in res cuing six native convicts who would otherwise have perished, for their com panions had been sw’ept away and drowned. This is only an instance of the courage displayed upon this occasion by the female convicts of the Andaman islands: on ail sides they won the highest praise by ministering to the dying and nursing the wounded. While the men seemed cowed with terror, the women, as a rule, dis played most remarkable courage. So much so that it is understood the gen eral governor of the penal station will recommend that a number of them be pardoned and that the sentences of a large number of others be commuted to short terms of imprisonment While this was going on ashore,*at sea, off the coast, matters were nearly as bad. Every small craft without apparently a single exception, was either swamped after a short struggle with the storm or swept ashore and then dashed to pieces amid the surf. A number of natives not included in the present estimate lost their lives in this manner. Damage to Crops and Property. The damage done to crops and other property must be very heavy, as it is admitted that all the crops not in thor •uglily sheltered places have been completely destroyed and that the number of buildings damaged or de stroyed is very great. Too Little Capital. Cincinnati. Nov. 11.—The Walton architectural iron works, one of the largest manufactories of the kind in the west has assigned to Charles Hoeffinghoff.
