THE CITY LEGISLATURE.
First Session of the New Council-
Committees Named—Board of
Trade Committee Reports—
Investigation Asked.
The new city council made Its first
appearance on Monday evening, and
Mayor Seevers made his address of in
auguration. He plead for the most
rigid economy, and called attention to
the deplorable condition of the city fi
nances. He sang a song of economy
that reached even the pockets of a last
year’s ulster.
COMMITTEE PAY.
Mr. Baumgart, chairman of the side
walk committee, made a talk which he
wished might be heard before the com
mittees were named. The gentleman
spoke at some length upon the arduous
duties of the sidewalk and street com
mittees. The city has miles upon miles
of walk and it takes two-thirds of the
time of the members of the committee
to discharge faithfully the duties of the
position. Mr. Baumgart thought it
but right and proper that compensation
should be given. Mr. Bartow therefore
moved that the sums of $l5O and SIOO
per year be given to the sidewalk and
street committees. Solicitor John C.
Williams questioned the power of the
council to grant such compensation and
mentioned the matter of finances. In
the face of these remarks the motion
was lost.
TILE INVESTIGATION.
The committee of the board of trade,
through Mr. I. Frankel, presented the
following report, which was read:
THE REPORT.
OSKALOOBA, I A., Apr. 9,1894.
To the City Council of the City of Os
kaloosa: —’We desire to advise you that
the undersigned haye been appointed
as a special committee by the board of
trade of this citv to request you to con
tinue to completion the investigation
of the accounts of G. B. McFall, ex
mayor, during his term of office. This
committee is also requested to aid you
in such manner as you desire to the end
that such investigation may be fully
and fairly made. What may be termed
irregularities, at least, in the accounts
of Mr. McFall justify us in urging upon
your attention the fact that he has cer
tainly collected large sums of money on
account of fines, licenses,and from other
sources and has at no time made any
report, either to your honorable body or
to the treasurer of the city, showing the
parties from whom such money was re
ceived or any dates of collections.
We therefore beg to ask that you re
quest Mr. McFall to furnish an item
ized statement of his account with the
city during his term as mayor, showing
the amounts of money collected by him,
from what sources, on what account
collected and the dates when such col
lections were made. Until a final state
ment of the character above requested
shall have been furnished by Mr. Mc-
Fall it is impossible to accurately check
his account, and any attempt to do so
on any information. or statement yet
furnished by the mayor must necessar
ily be unsatisfactory and incomplete.
When such statement is furnished we
are prepared to aid you in a full inves
tigation of this account, which has not
Jet been made during the entire term of
Ir. McFall's office. On account of the
serious charges of misappropriations
current against Mr. McFall we deem it
bjit due to him that he should have an
opportunity to make a full statement
to the public, and certainly the public
have a right to demand that it should
be so made.
Very truly yours,
I. Frankel, 'J
J. W. McMullin, |
John A.Kalbach, i- Com.

Discussion followed, in which Mr.
Frankel, Mr. George Seevers, ex-Mayor
McFall, Mr. Gibbs, and Solicitor Wil
liams, joined—Mr. Baajngart taking
positive grounds against the demands
of the report of the committee, holding
that such a report from previous may
ors had not been made or expected. To
that Mr. Frankel entered his protest,
saying that as long as he had been a
member of the council the itemized re
port had been made,and passed through
his hands as a member of the finance
committee. The other gentlemen join
ed in, only in the interest of all concern
ed that the fullest investigation be
made by the council, by report of the
ex-mayor or otherwise.
Mr. McFall said that his report had
been made from the data on his dock
ets, and that it was impossible to make
any other report, and that such a re
quest had never been made of any
other mayor. He was ready to meet at
any time any committee or the council,
or both, and make any and all explana
tions, and assist in any manner in any
work that they might ask.
Mr. Seevers responding said that the
committee bad fully decided to give
Mr. McFall the amplest opportunity to
make explanations,but what they want
ed now was an itemized statement,hold
ing that without that they could not
proceed in a business like way to check
up the work in hand.
Following other remarks in line with
the above, Solicitor Williams offered
the following resolution, and it was
adopted unanimously:
“ Resolved , That Mr. McFall be requir
ed to furnish the council with an ite
mized statement of his accounts, for
his entire term of office,as mayor,snow
ing the amount of money collected by
him, from what sources, on what ac
counts collected, and the dates such
collections were made. ’
Mayor Seevers held that it was due
Mr. McF&li as well as the city that the
resolution be adopted and the action
asked be complied with and the matter
then closed.
i The scale of wages for labor during
the ensuing year was considered and
motion was carried to adopt same scale
as was in effect last year,namely: Man,
91.50; team and man, 93.00; team with
grader, 93.00 per day.
THAT VIADUCT.
Solicitor Williams called up the South
7th street viaduct and called attention
to the fact that Thursday was the day
set by the appraisers for condemnation
proceedings. Mr. Williams stated that
it was very probable that the city would
be enjoined from spending any more
money and thus increasing indebted
ness. He therefore urged one of two
things, either see the property owners
interested and get them to accept city
warrants in payment of damage or else
indefinitely postpone the work. The
latter course upon motion of Mr. Baum
gart was adopted.

See vers are as follows;

Sunday School Work.
An enthusiastic meeting of the Sab
bath school workers of this city was
held in the United Presbyterian church
Sunday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock. Rev.
C. W. Sweet, as chairman, stated that
they had met to discuss plans to gather
the children of Mahaska county into
Sunday schools. He first introduced
Mr. S. H. Patterson, of Newton, who is
the Sunday school missionary of the
American Sunday School Union for
Jasper county. Mr. Patterson stated
that he had been working in that coun
ty for the past six years. When he be
gan work they had 20 Sunday schools;
now they have 138 and an increase in
attendance upon their Sunday schools
of 3,891, while the school population
had decreased in the same time, 711.
Their county has 176 more people at
tending their Sunday schools than the
entire school population of the county,
making it the banner county in the
United States in Sunday school work.
Mr. Patterson also gave some intensely
interesting incidents as to how he did
his work in the discouraging commu
nities.
Mr. E. B. Stevenson, the assistant su
perintendent of the northwestern dis
trict of the American Sunday School
Union, of Cedar Rapids, was then intro
duced, and he began at once to show
the needs of just such work in Mahaska
county. The population of this county
is 28,805 and the school population 10,-
825. There are 66 Sunday schools in the
county with an attendance of 3,672. If
all those who attend the Sunday schools
were children and youths of school age
there would be 7,153 who do not attend
any Sunday school in the county, mak
ing an exceedingly bad showing, for
there are at best less than one-third of
the children of the county that attend
Sunday school anywhere.
The scheme on foot now is to place a
man in the field to give his entire time
to the work is a move in the right di
rection and will prove a lasting benefit
to this county as it has in a large num
ber of other counties in the state where
the American Sunday School Union
have these men at work.
The duties of the workers are: First,
to organize Sunday schools wherever
possible, letting the people decide for
themselves the kind of school they want,
M. E., Congregational,Christian,Union,
etc.; Second, to visit and encourage
weak schools in every way possible;
Third, to visit from house to house in
enlisting the cooperation of the parents;
Fourth, to hold special meetings with
these week schools endeavoring to bring
the scholars to Christ; Fifth, to distri
bute Bibles and Testaments, religious
literature, etc.; Sixth, hold conventions
and thus stir up a greater interest in
the Sunday school work.
Mr. Stevenson illustrated the work in
other counties showing by pictures of
churches and Sunday schools that had
grown from the work. At the close of
the meeting a committee was appointed
td canvass the entire city for funds for
tbe support of the worker. This morn
idg the committee met in the Y. M. C.
A. rooms and they are now at work and
meeting with success. Oskaloosa is go
ing to do its part iu raising the SI,OOO
needed for the first year’s work. The
workers sent out by the society are so
far as the school is able to supply the
demand sent out from the Chicago
training school under the charge of Mr.
D. L. Moody.
There is more Catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
gether, and until the last few years was
supposed to be iucurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies.and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it it incurable.

On Wednesday evening Supt. Low,of
the Burlington road, brought in an in
voice, F. O. 8., of Burlington’s leading
business men, and consigned them to
the Blrdsell. Those of the party were
Messrs. Robert Donahoe, Burke, Smith

Kelly, Mahan, Brannigan, Ives and
West, and enough others to make up a
couple of dozen, Wilson bill count!
They were much pleased to find a hum
ming old town up here on the prairie,
and several of them wanted to trade off
Burlington earth for stuff here, but
found no swappers. A good thing is

were a genial crowd, and The Herald
promises to fetch a gang down on them
some time soon “When the Robins Nest

The strongest recommendation that any
article can have is the endorsement of the
mothers of the town. When the mothers
recommend it you may know that that ar
ticle has more than ordinary merit. Here is
what the Centerville, South Dakota, Citi

their town: “From personal experience
we can say that Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedy has broken up bad colds for our
children. We are acquainted with many
mothers in Centerville who would not be
without it in the house for many times its
cost, and a-e recommending it every day.”

Some Statements Reviewed.
Editor Herald:— ln your Daily of
February 20, Mr. S. Knowlton asks some
questions In regard to county expenses
and makes some statements as to the
great economy with which county
matters were run when he was a mem
her of the board of equalization. He
is careful however not to publish his
own report of poor farm matters for
1877, when he had charge of the farm
as director. As a specimen of .unique
calculation we give it here with verba
tum, omitting some immaterial portions
in order not to trespass too much upon
your space. This report will be found
in Minute Book No. 2, page 128, in the
April session 1878, and is as follows:
To the Honorable Board of Su
pervisors:
Gentlemen:—l have the honor of sub
mitting to you the following report of
the expenses of the Mahaska county
poor farm for the year 1877:
No. paupers cared for during year.. 48
No. births at farm 2
No. deaths at farm 1
Average for the year 24*4
EXPENSES.
Steward’s salary $ 400 00
Farm 622 38
Family 365 96
Clothing for paupers 189 20
Totat 1,577 54
Value of the products of the farm
now on hand and disposed of during the
year, $2,847.40. and subtracting expense
of farm $1,577.54, leaves a balance in
hands of steward of $1,269 86. This
shows a profit to the farm over and
above the expense of running the same
for $1,269.86. These amounts are taken
from the report of the steward now on
file in the auditor’s office and make a
very creditable showing. 1 think how
ever, the appraisment of some of the
products are a trifle higher than they
are actually worth, or their cash value
has been during the year.
*****
I have compared the running ex
penses of the poor farm for the years
1875 76-77, and herewith submit them
to you: In 1875 the 80 acre farm had
an average of 12% paupers and cost the
county over and above the products of
the farm $2,653.53. In the year 1876,
which was the first year on the farm
now occupied by the county, and with
some extra expense, and with an aver
age of 16 paupers, ccst the county over
and above the products of the farm,
$2,177.63. Itespectfully submitted,
S. Knowlton,
Director Poor Farm, 1877.
Now it will be seen that Mr. Knowl
ton takes no account of stock, stores
and products on hand when he first took
charge of the poor farm. If a business
man takes no account of merchandise,
notes, account s and cash on hand at the
beginning of the year, his balance sheet
may show a fine profit at the end of the
year when in fact, he is a heavy loser.
He had better discharge bis bookkeep
er. Mr. Knowlton s report discloses
just that kind of bookkeeping. Had he
taken under consideration the stuff on
hand, his “profit” would have rapidly
faded into a large lose, or expense. If
the gentleman contends for his “profit”
will he please tell us what became of
the large amount of stuff on hand when
he took charge. It was there. But
again, in order to make out a profit he
appraises the stock, etc., which was left
on the farm (as he admits in his report)
“a trifle higher than they are actually
worth.” The fact is that the poor farm
never has been self-sustaining, and such
reports as the foregoing will fool no one
who may be curious enough to analyze
them. Back in those palmy days when
economy was the watchword and frugal
ity all the go; when a farm worth over
SIOO per acre was traded for one worth
$35 per acre; when we had to buy as9oo
safe on time at 10 percent Interest, in
which to keep our savings (from the
poor farm?) we discover that it takes
more to keep a pauper than it has the
past year, bn the gentleman’s own
figures. He says it cost nearly $3,000
to keep about 30 paupers last year. This
would be about SIOO per head. In 1877,
taking his own report and allowing for
stuff on hand, which he omitted, the
cost was above SIOO per head. In 1876
when he was a member of the board,
the cost of each pauper, according to
his own report, was $136.10, not count
ing products of the farm consumed. Id
1875, same report, the cost was $212.28
per head, products of farm not counted.
In the light of ancient history the pres
ent expenses of the poor farm are not
alarming, and when the gentleman in
dulges in reminiscences of those days
of blessed memory, it might be well to
leave out comparisous and to be sure
of his record and of his arithmetic. Tn
conclusion let uie say that the present,
board of supervisors has eiidenv* red to
do its duty at d guard U<e interests
of the county. VYe are uot afraid of
any fair investigation or criticism, but
we claim the right to correct any un
true representations made through
ignorance or captious fault finding.

is a difference of opinion on this sub

and the Ft. Wayne folks, as regards the
merits of their respective machines,
there was a spirited contest Thursday
between the two graders just south of
the city. The trustees, W. W. Steward,
Milt Young and L. J. Allen, called
Cy. Jordan, J. M. Barnes and Lin

What the Differences in the Tran
scripts Show Under Judge Ham-
mer’s Work.
On Friday evening Judge Hammer
had completed his examination of the
transcripts and dockets covering sev
eral hundred cases, and the results are
given below. The work eiamined com
pletes the transcripts of one justice,
with his dockets, back to the tramp
bonanza’s commencement, and two
fresh transcripts—daily from January
to March. It should be remembered
that the figures given first are those
claimed by thetranucripts. From them
there was a reduction made by correct
ion by the Board, and in amount prob
ably S2OO, but it is not easily possible
now to give that exact. Later on it
will be given, with the names and dates.
On the face of these transcripts, with
comparison with the actual docket the
examination is made, and the recom
mendations for correction suggested by
Judge Hammer. The work, then, up
to Friday evening, is presented in these
figures:
Claimed. Recommended.
1. $ 428 30 $ 200 60
2. 677 25 355 50
3. 780 55 277 10
4. 528 65 221 80
5. 516 20 192 75
6. 1,178 25 488 40
7. 250 90 192 70
Total. 4,360 00 1,926 85
Deduction, $2,433.15.
This “round up” shows now the over
draft of $35,000 on the general fund
has been kept up, for the work yet to
be examined will show up relatively
as great a cost and deductible differ
ence.
Let it be understood that no one
charges theft and piracy in the matter.
With one justice declaring a law of the
state unconstitutional, and acting con
trary thereto, and constables and all
defining the law in the most liberal way;
with the fostering of the tramp curse
by every means known—no wonder
that fees have crept up and overflowed
all. Then the Board were without the
legal information contained in the
Council Bluffs case, and several hun
dred dollars went that way,and no legal
light to throw its brilliancy on the
matter and so save the error and the
dollars.
An interview has been had with a
great many farmers in town Friday
and Saturday, on the matter. With one
accord they approve of the action of the
Board, and demand that the examina
tion shall be made thorough and com
plete, no odds whose pig may be under
the hay. And on that line honest men
will stand, and there the Board will be
found, and such followed action taken
as will clear the fee business of its
rapacity and wrong, and its outrage on
the people.

the circus proceed!
Other Than Green Things Grow—
The Enormous Growth of Fees Paid
in Mahaska.
All things grow in lowa with a mar
velous growth iu every way. Com
grows big. Look at that big com stock
in the post office—about 17 feet high.
Then note the hogs! How they do
grow, and how they fatten the pockets
of the fellows who raise ’em ! Think
ing of these things that grow so fa
mously fetches up some other things
that have grown even more so than
com and hogs. For instance—court
costs, aud in the coal oil light of the
investigation going on, ordered by the
Board, and done by Judge Hammer,the
figures presented herewith will be of
special interest,—especially to the fel
low who is whacking up six per cent
taxes, and’getting Wilson bill prices for
labor and truck that he has to sell! As
evidence of growth, what’s the matter
with the growth in the expense of
We take these figures from the of
ficial records of the county, and we
want you to note the way the expense
came up from 1891 to 1893—and the
same lick was kept up for 1894:
Year. < :: Paid. Increase.
18a0 $2,683.45
1891 V. 4,095.15 $1,411.70
1892 4,685.13 “ 589.98
1893 6,990.12 2,304.99
Increase in three years $4,306,67.
That about matches the 17 foot corn,
and how about the hogs!
Naturally—as pretzels go with beer!
—fhe man looking for figures would
look at the account with the
“sheriffs and bailiffs.”
That account also shows the prodig
ous pushing power of lowa soil and
things, and these are the figures found
—and paid—for the years named:
Year. Paid.
1890 :....$4,951.79
,1891 6,421.66 $1,469.87
1892 6,756.87 385.21
1893 7,699.27 942.40
Increase in three ye mi $2,747.48.
It is quite evident that the section of
official sort was not allowed to remain
fallow in any rod of it. Iu addition to
the above there were some SBOO in
bills before the Board for the old sheriff,
which would make the increase about
$3,500 for the three years—and don’t
leave the first account named so very
far behind. Seventy-six hundred dollars
tw the county to pay on that account
for one year, n these piping times of
peace—is a heap of g-*od tax money
gone that way—dou’t you think ?
Then comes the account with
ATTORNEY BERVICE.
The drouth that burned our pastures,
dried up the running brooks,aud seared
the land as with a hot blast, did not
seem to have an ill effect on the growth
of this item, for the official figures loom
up like this sort of a Pisgah;

1893 2,718 83 881 12
In 1892 there was a decrease in ex
pense on this account of 9359.16, but in
1893 she loomed away up with an in
crease of 9881.12—the total net increase
for three years being 91,593.83. It has

Extracts from report in Norris
town Herald:
‘ Congressman Lacey thought that to
preach Republicanism in Pennsylvania
was like preaching the gospel in New
Jerusalem. What can a man from the
great agricultural state of lowa say to
interest the men of manufacturing
Pennsylvania ? It has been taught by
the democrats that what was good for
Pennsylvania and the Northeast must
be bad for lowa and the rest of the
West. The easiest way to expose the
fallacy is to prove it false by statistics,
lie showed conclusively that the per
capita wealth of Pennsylvania and lowa
increased apace under the same laws;
and that any alliance between the south
and west as against the north and east,
would be as detrimental to the aggress
ive allies as to those whom they at
tacked.
Commenting on the present control
of the government by the Southerners,
he said that those gentlemen were back
in the Union to stay, but they were
back for the sole purpose of ruling it.
No wonder that Pennsylvania has
walked up to the necessities of the situ
ation, no wonder that New York has
revolted from the dominion of such a
rule; no wonder that the workingmen
are uprising all over the land and pro
paring to maae a greater change at the
polls than has ever been made before.
The republican principle is protection,
the principle of giving a man a chance
to hustle for himself; the populists
would have this a government of
paternalism, the doing of all these
things for him. The most prosperous
industry of to-day is the enormous
manufacture of Republican votes that
is going on in every state and county in
the Union. A year ago last March
when Cleveland was inaugurated, the
country was making iron, and cotton
goods and woolens and every other kind
of commodity; now the chimneys are
smokeless, workmen are idle, manu
facturers are at a standstill; and if this
state of things keeps up much longer
there will be no more democrats to turn
to republicanism. A glowing tribute
to the influence of Pennsylvania repub
licanism closed the able address/’

Our fire boys are now in excellent

much general interest in their depart

and have it working in the right way,
and although placed at some marked
disadvantages they will, with the right
support in other directions, make a
showing which will be second to none.
The fire company as now organized is

little business. The following resolu
tion was adopted: ..
“Be it resolved by the city conncil
that W. H. Harney, who has been ap

ed at the Central lowa railway, shall
have for his services in making arrests
under tbs city ordinances, such fees as
are allowed by law for said services,
but no fees shall be paid him unless the
fees ere first paid by the party or parties
arrested, and said fees shall be in full
consideration for all services rendered
by said Harney for the city.
An ordinance extending the fire limits
of the city was passed and is published
in another column. C. M. Dixon ap
peared before the council to offer ex
planations in the C avenue sidewalk
petition. It appears that some time
ago money was voted for the necessary

Dr. McAyeal died Wednesday night
at the home of his son Howard,at Cam

had been in California during the win
ter, an I stopped on his way homeward
to Matsachusetts. He had been an in
valid for some time, and was taken
acutely at Denver, where his son went
after him. The deceased was pastor
here o f the United Presbyterian church
for nearly a quarter of a'century, and
served for a time as chaplain of the 33d
lowa Infantry during the early part of
the wor. It is supposed that his body
will be taken to Massachusetts for
burial. His daughter, Mrs. Carrie Mc-
Ayeal Ogilvie, resides at Des Moines,
and to her and the family abundant
sympathy will be expressed. It can
well be said of this comrade: “Servant
of God, rest in the victories you have

The subject was, “Shall the Govern
ment Own and Control the Railroads?”
Drake affirmed, Penn denied. The
speakers on the part of Drake Univers
ity were E. M. Smith, J. K. Hester and
L. M. Larson. The Penn College speak
ers were G. D. Weeks, C. A. Kent and
J. R Howard. The speeches were all
of at excellent character, quite able and
bristling with arguments, and the de
cision of the judges was that Penn had
mads the best presentation of the ques
tion, giving them the honors of the de
bate. One of the most enj >yable feat

GRAND JURY ADJOURNS.
The County Jail Receives Severe
The grand jury adjourned Saturday
after transacting considerable business.
The following report on the jail was
sent in and is a severe condemnation of
the old building.
To the District Court of Mahaska
County Iotoa:
Your grand jury have visited the
county jail, and make the following
report:
“We find the jail a very old looking
structure about forty feet square, two
stories high, built of brick aud stone
with shingle roof. The walls are con
siderably cracked, one of the windows
is broken out, one large stone is partly
shoved out of the wall on the side of
one of the cells making it unfit for use.
There are five cells below and four
above with hall above and below in
front of the cells. The front of the
house is used as a dwelling. The floors
are sunken and rotten, and there is also
a frame addition or lean to about 12x21
feet also in very poor repair. In our
opinion the building is not worth re
pairing, neither do we consider it a
secure place for keeping prisoners We
find nine prisoners iii the jail, all males
So far as we could see the prisoners
were comfortably kept as the condi
tion of the buildiDg would permit; but
we advise all persons to keep out.”
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Th«* usual treatment of catarrh is very
unsatisfactory, as thousands can testify.
Proper local treatmen is positively neces
