A Splendid Gathering of
Citizens Greet Drake
and Lacey!
The people of Mahaska gave Gen.
Drake,the Republican nominee for gov
ernor, a very handsome greeting Satur
day-one that should have been, and
was very satisfying to him.
Gen. Drake has been known to our
people for forty years, and always In a
mutually pleasant way.
Gen. Drake came from Fella on the
morning Rock Island, and was met by
Chairman Malcolm and party and es
corted to the Birdsall, where he was
He received many callers, and was
given a Republican welcome that was
as hearty as it was earnest and sincere.
He had been the unfortunate gatherer
In of a bad cald, and was laboring with
a throat that was somewhat swampy—
that Is, was full of frogs! Rut the aft
ernoon hour gave a chance to chase
away the frogs—and he did It That
waß always the way Drake had—he did
that which he undertook well.
The court room was chosen for the
place of meeting—the opera house be
ing engaged -and the room was filled
In all Its parts,by a representative audi
ence of the good people of Mahaska
and from nearly any section of It.
The meeting was called to order by
Chairman Malcolm, who Introduced as
the chairman of the meeting,Mr.George
W. Seevers, who, took charge and de
lighted the meeting by Introducing Miss
Lucia Griftio, of Albla, who gave, with
taking effect, how a Democratic baby
cries, and followed the loudly demand
ed recall,with another splendid selection
“how to say hello!” It was a captiva
ting Introduction of one of the most de
lightful speakers of the day.
Gen. Drake spoke for about an hour,
in which he touched upon all the cur
rent questions of the day as relating to
the state. He was exceedingly frank
and fair in the handling of all questions
—and especially that wherein the dem
ocratic opposition were afraid that the
republicans were not managing their
campaign to suit the Democracy—
where one candidate was busy in accus
ing him of cowardice-at two hundred
miles distance—in not assuming that,if
If chorea governor, he was larger than
the people,in proper way .declaring their
desires. He felt that the sovereignty
of the whole people could readily be
trusted, and he proposed to abide by
that line, if chosen.
which some portions of the Democracy
were Interested, he was particularly
strong, witty and convincing from the
standpoint of Bound Republicanism—
which is only another name for sound
business sense ! The way the Democ
racy had handled the tariff matter, the
public debt, and all the other great bus
iness questions were treated in a way
that showed the keenest acquaintance
with the propositions involved. And
he handled them in a way that could
not offend—for he only presented the
plain, unvarnished truth of the situa
He was repeated applauded, and left
the very best impression upon the large
audience present. He left at 4 o’clock
for Grlnnell, where he speaks this even
ing with Gov. Larrabee as companion
in arms.
“And then Major Lacey spoke." And
he made one of his splendid speeches—
one of the kind that has always met
with a welcome from our people, and
the Republican cause great good.
It was In every way an elegant and
telllDg close to Gen. Drake's practical
and business man’s speech, and the lie
publicans went home feeling that an
other grand October meeting had been
scored for the party that is the G. O P.
all the time.
A Great Speech.
Senator Allison’s great speech, made
at Marshalltown, is given on our sup
plemental sheet, aDd every voter who
desires to inform himself fully on ad
ministrative conditions of the country
should read it
The senator’s utterances are accepted
by all men, when it comes to statement
of deliberate facts and figures to be be
long reasonable question. A close and
careful perusal of it will amply repay
all mer, of all parties. Do not fail to
read it—from opening to close.
lowa Press Association.
The lowa Press boys are having a
royal time at Atlanta—and things were
not slow at Nashville, Chattanooga and
St Louis -and they endorsed Lafe
Y oung, by re-electing him as president,
and Capt. Shaw, as secretary, with
Charley Junction, of Fairfield, as the
leader of that peculiar dignity which
flows from the vice presidential chair.
‘Straight as ths Arrow to Its Mark.**
—The Burlington Hawkeye in view
of the political telegrams sent by Math
odist conferences to both parties says:
'lf the Roman Catholic church had
held a convention of its lowa churches
and had sent a political telegram of
that character, It would have created
an uproar all over the slate of lowa
and throughout the nation. It would
have been regarded as an unwarrant
ed Interference of the Catholic church
in the affairs of civil government, an
attempt of Romanists to control poll
tlcal parties. It goes without saying
that if church action upon the part of
Roman Catholics would be objection
able, It is no less so upon the part of
Methodists or any other religious or
—Rockford Register: “J. T. Call, of
Appanoose county, has eight sons, all
republicans; N. Fullerton, of Cerro
Gordo county, eight sons, all republi
cans; and C. H, Squires, of this place,
eight sons, all republicans. Now will
some paper bring out some lowa farm
er with eight sons, all democrats ?”
—Judge Husted of the Dubuque dis
trict court is said to have defined the
term “head of a family” as follows:
The fact that a man has a family does
not make him the head of the family.
He must support his family else he is
not Its head. If the man Is a loafer and
a worthless coot, and the wife Is the
provider, she Is the one at the head of
the family.
—Gen. Miles Is not a West Pointer.
When the civil war broke out he was a
clerk In a Boston dry goods store,meas
uring off calico on a salary that barely
sufficed to pay his living expenses. He
entered the volunteer service as a sec
ond lieutenant In the 22d Massachusetts
Regiment, and rose rapidly to a colon
elcy. Good fighting in Virginia, attest
ed by three wounds, advanced him to
higher grades; but us greatest dlstlnc
tlon was gained in Indian wars on the
western frontier.
—There le a great republican victory
in the air. Let the republicans remem
ber that in lowa victories at the polls
are only won by getting the ballots in
the boxes, and then fairly counted. So
theD, brother Republican, put down the
day and date, and see that you get out
and vote—rain, snow, corn-husking and
all else to the contrary notwithstanding.
—Don’t forget that any dollar of
manufactured product brought to this
country, that can be made in this coun
try, cuts off that much of demand for
American labor. The republicans be
lieve that it is better to make all in this
country that can be here made—keep
American and home labor employed.
The democrat?, —well, no one can tell
what they believe. All we know is that
they make tin awful boggle of all that
they undertake, and unemployed labor
knows that all over the country.
—The Knoxville Express is the iirst
democratic country paper that has at
tempted a defense of the bond deal of
the administration. It says: “After
all the talk about the “immense profit"
of the bond syndicate and the accusa
tion that the bond sale was a profitable
thing for the president and his advisors,
it now turns out that, the members of
the syndicate made very little out of
the deal after all. It was dissolved last
week and a showing made. The bank
ers who bought the bonds and sustain
ed the government's gold reserve at a
very trying time received exactly 6%
per cent on the money invested, a very
low price for the service rendered in
keeping up the reserve. It becomes
more and more apparent, as time goes
on, that President Cleveland and Secre
tary Carlisle really drove a very shrewd
bargain with th 6 bankers,and one which
resulted profitably for the conntry.’
And all this in the face of facts that
can not be defended by anyone—a se
cret sale of bonds away below market
price, with an ultimate profit to the
syndicate of the millions of dollars, all
of which should have been in the treas
ury. Some people have a hard name
for this sort or “financing" and we shall
not name it. Gen. Weaver can do it!
—The grand jury system is a relic of
judicial barbarism, and it should have
its baggage checked for oblivion by the
next legislature, or steps taken thereto.
All cases could be tried direct on lnfor
matlon, and this grand jury business is
simply a matter of expense, a loophole
for escape of indicted persons, and
a wholly needless piece of judicial mll
lioery in any way you look at it. It is
made often the means for scoundrelly
vengeance, and pins many times the
stigma of an indictment on persons by
put up and false one sided testimony,
told only for the purpose, and not for
the sake of justice.
—Tue divorce of Amelle Rives Chan
ler from her husband created a rensa
tlon in literary circles. There is a form
of genius that nobody would expect to
see move along steadily in harness with
practical every day life, and it may be
suspected that the author of the ‘ Quick
and the Dead’’ had that kind.
An Old One.— The Marshall Repub
lican of Monday save: ‘ Engine No. 1,
of the Central,with Sam Cook and James
Morton, Jr., in charge, went to Oska
loosa Saturday night and will in the
future run from that city to Center
ville on the Albia and Centerville
branch. This locomotive is the first one
ever owned by the road, and is some
what of a curiosity because it is so small.
It has recently undergone complete re
modeling in the shop and looks like a
new machine.”

Something About Old Time*.
—One of the pleasant t hlngs that eome
it the golden d«}s of age-is the re
membrance of the association of y »ut*,
When Gen Drake was here on Sstur
day he huntei up the man to a horn he
had gone to school lu his boyhood day*
—Father L C. Dobyte.and there In the
meeting paid a high tribute to the help
fullness of the Instruction received at
hie hands away back lu those early days,
when the public schools were hardly
the palaoes that now dot the lowa
prairies so plentifully. Father Dobyns
was gratified at the recognition thus
generously given, but said: “That's just
like Drake!”
—Drake has a most loving regard for
the men and women of the old days.
He has passed 57 years In lowa—very
long before the effort how to make sure
a railway anywhere In the west. That
was In 1839 -and what a wonderful de
velopment Drake, and all the old citl
zens have seen! What wonderful win
nings in material progress—so much of
it won by the hardest toil! How hard
It was to “open up” a new farm—the
cabin, slough well, the “ager,”—the
breaking “peralrie,” sod corn, meal and
whisky—the scant furniture! Let some
of the old boys tell how they put up
the first bedstead—with an inch auger
to make a whole In the side and end
logs, and the one poet! How the snow
used to drift thro’ the clap board on the
roofs—and the rain found its way. And
then toll had its slow reward—and a
better house, a better well, and more
comforts for the home. Actually a
cook stove was added—and cooking by
the Dutch oven and fire place, face
burning work was, over! How proud
the old woman was who had the first
cook Btove In her neighborhood! We
know of some of them who are yet
spared to their friends to enjoy the
blessings of the present great days,
which, after all, are not so happy as
when youth painted things In different
color, and when there was a generosity
even in the air that now seems to come
around very differently. Here’s to the
old days!—the old boys and girls, and
God spare them to the latest and best
—Then there was another thing about
the old times—and not so very old,
either. You remember, old friends,
when the boys heard the news about
Sumpter,and the nation sprang to arms!
How your boys would gather and talk
the matter over! How you and they
attended “war” meetings,and then how,
by one’s and two’s,the boys disappeared
from your midst, and went into this
command, or that! How lonely it was
—when Jim was gone! Somehow or
other the sun did not shine quite bo
brightly to you, did it V Something had
gone out of your home and life ! And
the wife and the girls, how they wor
ried about getting the last and earliest
Hera li>, with its news from J im’s com
pany. And then you will never forget
the day when the news came of that
great battle—victory won—but Jim !
“He fell like a hero,’’ wrote his captain,
“and we are all in sorrow at his loss! ”
And how mother wept, and walked as
one not of this earth ! Then the Com
forter came, and the sainted mother
knew the truth : “For thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."
And the weary round of life was taken
up, duties performed, and her heart,
crucified in the death of her first born,
became a living and a holy shrine of
patriotism. That was one of the sacri
fices that the old settlers were called on
to make—and made it! How sweet and
precious those memories of great days
and greater sacrifices ! How outreach
ing the beckoning hands from away and
away in the beyond—to give welcome to
the patriarchs whose labors and lives
have been so fruitful in great things !
—And so goes life away ! “Children's
children are the crown of old men ; and
the glory of children are their fathers !”
Men, flatters and Things.
- If our Ottumwa friends will listen to
the old man of The Herald they will
never be "Firmenlched," or roped Into
schemes that are Intended to bump
somebody else into line -a sort of a way
of “holding up" communities for the
purpose that “hold ups” are generally
put up.
—Then it is about time to kill off all
this big bonus business to companies
and corporations, seeking locations. It
is not fair in a general way to the com
munity, and simply means a gift to a
few of the Inside managers of such con
cerns. It is seldom that the donations
appear in the cash account of these
concerns, save only as “expenses.” We
speak by the court record found in every
state where the scheme has been work
ed. These big concerns can get along
without scraping in the hard earned
savings of school marmß. If they can’t,
they had better quit!
Supreme Coutt Decision.
In the record of the Supreme Court
decisions filed on Saturday was the fol
lowing, as given in the Register:
Relle Morris, appellant, vs. the Excel
sior Coal Company; Mahaska County,
D. Ryao, judge. Reversed; opinion by
Justice Rothrock.
The plaintiff is administratrix of the
estate of J. D. Morris, deceased, and the
defendant was a corporation tn gaged
in mining coal. The deceased was em
ployed in the defendant’s mine, and
while there at work part of the mine
caved in and killed him instantly. This
action was brought to recover damages
sustained by his estate on account of
his death. At the close of the intro
ductlon of the evidence, the lower court
directed the jury to return a verdict
for the defendant. The main contention
of the plaintiff upon the trial was that
Morris was killed by reason of the neg
ligence of the defendant in falling to
put in supports at the place where he
was klllea. The plaintiff appealed,and
now the Supreme Court holds that
while there is some doubt as to the
negligence, their conclusion is that the
motion to direct a verdict should have
been overruled, Mid for that reason the
decision of the lower court is reversed.

A New Discovery Which is Worth
The Pyramid Pile Cure, the new pain
-1698 remedy which has been so remark
ably successful in curing every form
of piles and rectal diseases, has recently
been placed on rale at drngglsts and it
Is safe to say that when its extraorndl
nary merit becomes fully known, their
will be no such thing as surgical oper
atlon for the cure of this obstinate and
common trouble.
Mre. M. C. Hlnkly, of 601 Mississippi
St, Indianapolis, lad, says: I had been
a terrible suffer! r from piles for 15 years
and no remedies benefitted me, until 1
saw an advertisement of the Pyramid
Pile Cure; I got a package, also a pack
age of Pyramid Pills and used both ac
cording to directions. I was astonished
at the immediate relief obtained and
now I honestly believe the Pyramid to
be the only certain care for piles.
That you may realize how bad I was,
[ will say taat I was confined to my
bed and went before the college physi
cians here who said my case was a new
one to them and wanted seven or eight
hundred dollars to undertake a cure;
the great pain had brought on a rupture,
and I knew an operation would be
death to me on account of biood poison
ing. Nearly everyone here knows of
my terrible suffering from piles and 1
feel that I cannot praise the Pyramid
Pi e Cure enough, and the Pyramid Pills
also. My husband will j oln me in highly
recommending the Pyramid. My
daughter was cured by one box only.
For several years I weighed but about
90 pounds, now I weigh 150 and feel in
perfect health.
This seems to be the universal testi
mony of every sufferer from plies who
have ever tried the Pyramid; it Is the
safest, most painless pile car yet dis
covered; contains no opiate, morphine,
cocaine or any poisonous ingredient
whatever, has a soothing, healing effect
from the first application, and the
moderate price places it within the
reach of everyone needing treatment.
The Pyramid Pile Cure is sold by drug
gists at 50 cents and 8100 per package
and the Pyramid Pills at 25 cents per

FAXON —Died, at 10 o’clock p. m., Oct.
12, 1895, at the residence of J. F. and Mrs.
Everett, in Madison township, Jeanette
Faxon, aged 45 years.
The deceased was born in Vermont,Nov.
3, 1850, at Essex, and in early childhood
removed to the west—and to this section,
visiting her sister, Mrs. Everett. She took
a partial course at Mt. Holyoke Seminary,
and always evinced a deep scholastic in
terest and became a woman of high intel
ligence. For many years she was sffl cted
with an asthmatic trouble that caused her
to seek relief bv climatic changes, but she
continued an almost constant sufferer.
Since January last she was in an invalided
condition, and her last days were full of
sorrowful suffering; but all was done that
kind hearts could suggest in parting relief.
The funeral occurred on Monday morning
and was largely attended by the friends of
the family. She lived a good life, and has
gone to her reward, which cannot be else
than good.
Miss Nettie has gone from among us.
While our loss is her gain, yet a tear came
unbidden to my eyes as I looked into her
open grave. How lovely was her charac
ter—patient, gentle, intelligent, affection
ate My memory goes back to days when
she was one of our choicest young ladies,
beloved by all—then the yean of teaching,
and finally her quiet rural life. How like
a benediction is faith in the resurrection of
Christ at such an hour as this. How glad
we are to leave our friends in the hands of
Him who has risen—the author of all love
and tbe aspiration of every true heart
How near we are drawn to the life beyond
as the portals of immortality open to our
friends one by one
Lord of all being, throned afar
Thy glory flames from sun and star,
Center and soul of every sphere,
Yet to each loving heart, how near!
