Des Moines, Io., Aug. 24.— Re
publican state convention to-day was
harmonious if not enthusiastic. There
was the usual large attendance, hut one
county being unrepresented, but there
was a marked difference in the person
nel of the gathering as compared with
conventions of former years. The
farmer element was much more repre
sented than • heretofore. This is ac
counted for in part by the fact that the
anti-monopoly movement is growing in
that party here, but more especially by
the fact of the interstate commerce law
abolishing the customary railway passes
which the slick politician always gath
ered up. Now, when railway fares are
to be paid.
is flattered by being put forward as a
delegate and allowed to pay his way
and represent his party in convention.
The proceedings of the convention were
generally dull and uninteresting. John
Breiinan. the temporary chairman, is an
Irishman who would never have been
discovered except for the fact that he
became a Republican in 1SS4, and Was
thus lifted into notoriety in the Blaine
campaign. In his speech to-day he bit
terly assailed President Cleveland and
his administration, comparing him per
sonally with Jeff Davis, declar
ing that the conduct of the lat
ter was much more praiseworthy
and honorable than that of the former.
Compared to Cleveland, he thought
Davis. entitled to great credit. The
speech abounded in allusions of a simi
lar kind and they were quite generally
cheered by the convention. During the
progress of the speeches a portrait of
{Senator Allison was *- dramatically un
veiled from one of the proscenium
boxes. Tumultuous applause and cheers
greeted this little incident. The tone of
public discussion was not much im
proved when Breiinan gave up the chair
to Congressman Henderson, of Du
buque, in the afternoon. Hender
son fought the war over
again, about as he did
in congress last winter, to the great de
light of the convention. He closed by
alluding to the fact that he had every
where been encountered by a deter
mination among Iowa Republicans to
indorse Senator Allison for president,
but as his friend. who expected to follow
him to victory next year, he thought it
best for this convention to take no such
action, but to defer it until another
year. It was plain to the convention as
the chairman took the gavel that he had
been put forward at Senator Allison's
request for the single purpose of check
ing the determination of the delegates
to pass a resolution of indorsement.
were glad enough to consent to
suck a programme, for the con
vention had clearly got be
yond their control and was fairly bub
bling over with enthusiasm for Iowa's
favorite son. Gov. Larrabee, when re
nominated, accepted in an elaborate
speech. Nature never intended the
governor for an orator. Having passed
most of his life behind a bank counter
he naturally runs to figures. He has
an aptitude lor massing statistics,
lint seldom makes himself interesting.
His speech to-day charged the present
business condition of Iowa to the advent
of a Democratic administration. Values
had always declined under such circum
stances, he said, and they always would.
The two years' failure of crops in Iowa
he did not take into consideration as a
factor Th effecting a business paralysis.
It was the Democratic party exclusively.
.'inhibition was endorsed and the party
was encouraged to continue. "The man
is not yet born," said the governor.
"who will live to see the saloons turned
loose in Iowa again to prey upon help
less women and children." He closed
with an elaborate defense of the man
agement of state affairs against the
and promised that the present debt
should be paid off by July next. The
granger element displayed its strength
in balloting for supreme judge. Adams,
the present incumbent. was a candidate.
but his alledged leaning toward the
corporations produced strong opposi- !
tion. The first ballot showed that he i
possessed about two-fifths of the neces- l
sary strength. For three ballots he
held his vote, then began to lose,
the strength of the other
candidates gradually centering
around Senator Robinson, carrying him
through by a large majority on the fifth
ballot. The nominee is an anti-mono- I
poly lawyer of only fair ability. It is j
not easy sailing for the Republican
ticket in Iowa this year. The revolt
against the parly on account of its con
tinued adherence to prohibition is be
coming alarming in some localities, and
Larrabee's speech to-day will greatly ir
ritate these revolutionists and cause
them to bolt the state ticket as well as
the candidates for the legislature.
There are not less than 1,000 of them in
this city and they propose to work only
for the repeal of prohibition. Organi
zations will be effected in other cities
for the purpose of cooperating with the -
Democrats. Thus the campaign prom
ises to be interesting.
Fir. — The Republicans of Iowa accept as
settled the old issue.- and conclusive results
of the war and hail with patriotic satisfac
tion all sincere evidences of returning fra
tcrnitv and reunion. The new issues raised
in the" South, since die war, against the right
of every freeman to cast his vote unmolested
and have it honestly counted, and against
the right of majority rule in the state and
nation, are yet lo be settled.
second, we deny that the suffrage is pure
lv ;. local question for each state to regulate

The suppression of die votes of the black
man in I he South is not only a wrong to
them. J l is also a national wrong in the elec
li .-i of congress, mid a bold and successful ]
method to make one vote in the South count
for as much as two in the North, therefore a I
wrong which reaches into even- neighbor- I
hood and to every voter in the Union. It is j
nlso used to degrade the negroes of the South
into a servile form of cheap labor, with
•which free labor everywhere must soon be
brought into com petition.

Seventh— The theory of public regulation

and by the state carried up to the approval of
the supreme court of the United

favor. We approve the general prin

favor such amendments thereto as will make
it Still more protective of the interests of the
people, and such state legislation as will ap

that the next legislature shall, after thorough
and unsparing investigation, so revise and
amend the laws forming the railroad code of
the state as will secure to the people all

state can afford to reance passenger fares to

discriminations between persons and places,
and also to any railroad policy or legislation
which will tend to injure our agricultural,
industrial or commercial interests, or that
will aid in building uji outside cities and in
terests at the expense of the cities and towns
of our own state. We are also opposed to
granting any form of exclusive rights by

Eighth government, saved front de
struction and treason by the patriotism and
valor of the Union soldiers, cannot afford, in
justice or honor, to deal less than justly with
them. It should cordially and promptly be

not as a charity, liberal pensions to all dis
abled or dependent soldiers, and to the de
pendent willows and parents of soldiers, thus
preventing any Buffering and want from
coming to those to whom the nation owes a
dent it can never repay.
Ninth— Iowa lias no compromise to hold
wiih the saloon. We declare in favor of the
faithful and vigorous enforcement in all
parts of the state of the prohibitory law.
The pharmacy law and county permit law
should be so amended as to prevent the drug
store or wholesale liquor law from becoming
in any manner the substitute or successor of

Eleventh — We approve of the state admin

especially commend Gov. Larrabee for his
Courageous defense of the people from the
extortion of railway monopolies and for his
protest in behalf of" Iowa against Cleveland's
attempted surrender of the rebel battle (lags.

Those of Pennsylvania! are Hold-
ing a Convention.
IlAi*i:ismi'.-. Paw, Aug, 24. — The pro
hibitionists are holding their stale con
vention here to-day. From 400 to 500
delegates were present. S. li. Chase, of
Northampton county was elected tem
porary chairman. He warmly criticised
the railroad companies for charging
prohibition delegates twice as much for
transportation as republican delegates,
and said it was a flagrant violation of
the inter state commerce act. It was
also claimed that Mr. Green, vice
president of the Pennsylvania rail
road, had stated that it was
the policy of the road to favor
the republican party above other parties.
The afternoon session was opened with
prayer, and a permanent onraufction
was effected by the election of Hon.
Charles S. Wolfe, of Union county, as
chairman, and a long list of vice presi
dents. The platform was then read. It
denounces the liquor traffic and de
mands the prohibition of the same by
constitutional amendment: upbraids the
present great political parties for their
cowardice to meet the saloon power at
the ballot box; favors protection to
American labor and capital; the popular
election, with the retention of the Bible
in the public schools: just pen
sions to the dependent soldiers
or their families, civil service based on
personal character and official fitness,
and a wise economical administration of
public affairs. The platform also favors !
equal taxation, arbitration in labor dis- j
putes and woman suffrage, and de
nounces the "Continental Sunday." All
that remains for the convention to do is
the nomination of -candidates, which
will take place to-morrow morning. it
Is generally conceded that Simon Bur
chest, of Eastern, who was the Prohibi
tion candidate for supreme judge in
1.70, will again be named and that his
colleague will be Dallas ('. Irish,
of Newcastle, for state treasurer.
Syracuse, N. Y., Aug. 24.— At a
session of the National Reform party
to-day, it was decided to call a state
convention for Oct. 4 in this city. A
state ticket will then be put in nomina
tion and delegates chosen... to the
national convention of the party, which
will meet in Springfield. 111., on Vet. 13.;
The Prohibitionists expect to hold to-;
morrow the largest stale convention in
the history of their party: Several hun
dred delegates are making things lively
here, and it is expected that to-morrow
will find about 1,000 delegates in the
city. Kings county and New York ar
rived to-night about SOOstrong, including
those picked up on the way. The two
counties are holding separate caucuses
and will try to come to an agreement on j
the state ticker. One matter likely to j
nuke a stir in the convention is whether j

By Cable to the Globe.
London, Aug. 24.— Gladstone
held a second conference with Arnold
Morley. the Liberal Whig, in the lobby.
of the house of commons shortly before
beginning to-day's sitting. Their con
versation was brief, but earnest, and it
is' understood Mr. Morley informed his
chief that every arrangement had been
perfected to secure a full attendance of
the Gladstonian members Friday even
ing. Some regret is expressed that
John Morley is not likely to be present,
but a sufficient number of the opposition
members will be in their seats to make
his presence unnecessary to the success
of the Gladstonian programme, though
a vigorous speech from him would be
more than welcome. When Mr. (Mad-
stone entered the house he was greeted
with a tremendously enthusiastic recep-
tion by the Liberal and Panic! lite mem
bers on the floor and the crowd of home
rule sympathizers that packed the gal-
to-day. presumably set in motion by
Unionists, that considerable discontent
existed in the Liberal ranks over the
action of some Gladstonian members in
joining the National league and the ex
pressed determination of others to follow
the example. Careful and extended in
quiry has shown, however, that the re-
ports are baseless. Not only has there
been no discontent manifested by any
Liberal member, but on the contrary
members who openly avowed sympathy
with the principles and objects of the
league and proved their sincerity by
joining its ranks, have received the full
approval of those of their colleagues
who have not as yet committed them
selves absolutely to a thick and thin ,
support of the condemned Irish organi
zations. The conservative conference
at the Carlton club to-day was entirely
harmonious, and no disposition was
visible on the part of any Tory mem- j
bers to advise any alteration whatever
in the programme adopted by the gov-
ernment for the conduct of parliament-
ary business or Irish affairs during the
remainder of the session. The arraign
ment of the government by Mr. Glad-
stone and his followers in the house of
commons to-morrow promises to be a
lively affair, and doubts are expressed
by many of the supporters of the gov-
ernment that Mr. Smith and Mr. Bal
four will be equal to the task of success-
fully defending the position of the min
istry against the assaults of the ex-
premier and his lieutenants. The oppo-
sition, of course, do not indulge in any
expectation of defeating the govern
ment on Friday, and probably would
not do so if they could, their motives
being wholly ulterior and with a view
of achieving H____j
ultimately than the immediate defeat of
the cabinet could accomplish. As gen
erally understood among the liberal
and Irish members, the intention is to
give the government a sharp parting
wound and direct the efforts during the
recess to irritate it and keep it open,
trusting to the writhings of the victim
to tear its festering sides still further
apart before parliament shall reassem-
ble, when the crippled and exhausted
enemy of home rule may hi* dispatched
with ease. This is a very pretty theory,
and is really entertained seriously by
the opposition, but as the possibility
that the intended victim may prove to
be the victor is apparantly not taken in
account, and the likelihood of a severe
disappointment not thought of, the rose
colored programme may change its hue.
to Prince Ferdinand condemning the
hitter's entry into Bulgaria is sufficiently
■ definite as far as it goes, but the sultan
neglects to state what will be the conse-
quence of the Coburg prince's refusal
or failure to comply with the conditions
of the note. The settlement of the ques-
tion seems as far Off as ever. It is likely.
however, that something decisive will
be done during next week, either by
Russia or Turkey, or by both, and such
action on the part of either can result
only in disaster to the usurper of the
Bulgarian throne.
THE NEW Iir.l'lllI'KS.
In spite of the very much modified
tone of the French press, the friction
between the governments of England
and France over the New Hebrides
question increases. The ground upon
which France blocks the way to an ami-
cable settlement of the dispute is most
trivial, and no one can doubt that Eng-
land is amply justified in maintaining
the right of her attitude. Sooner or
later France must yield the concessions
she persistently and unwarrantably
With few exceptions the English
press declare that England can not
allow the use of Canadian troops in en-
forcing the orders of the Manitoba
courts, and demand that steps be taken
to prevent the dominion authorities
from committing the mistake of author
izing military interference in the lied
river valley. The Pall Mall Gazette
severely condemns the attitude of the
dominion government and cites many
precedents to prove its intenable char
acter. The St. James Gazette mildly
supports the Canadian government, but
deprecates violence and bloodshed. The*.
parliamentary election for St. Ives,
which will take place on Tuesday next,
is looked forward to with unusual in-
terest. The seat has been occupied by
a Conservative for 100 years without a
break, but owing to the influence of the
recent by elections and the changed
temper of the people it is thought the
Liberals have a good chance of electing
their candidate.
They Are All Right.
London. Aug. 24.— City of Mont

and the seven passengers and six mem
bers of the crew who were in it are*. safe

German vessel named, the Matilde.
which arrived at Falmouth to-day with
the thirteen survivors on board.
Constantinople, Aug. 24.— The
| porte has telegraphed to Prince Ferdi
j nand that he disapproves or. his entry
j into Bulgaria without the sanction of

ply to the last circular of the porte sug
| gested that an Ottoman commission anj
a Russian general should go to Sofia to
secure conjointly and in a legal manner
the election of a new sobrahje. which
should elect a new prince. This pro-
posal being submitted to the powers,

but disapproved of by the other powers.
who advisd the porte to adopt a policy of
moderation and to await events. M.
Vulkovitch, the Bulgarian agent, had
handed to the porte a telegram from
Prince Ferdinand expressing his devo-
tion to the sultan and asking permission
to come to Constantinople to pay his
homage in person. Kioinial Pasha, the
prime minister, will reply to the tele-
gram, informing the • prince that the
sultan cannot accede to. his proposition.
Rome, Aug. 24.— 'Ih* Riforma advo-
cates the recognition of Prince Ferdi-
nand by the powers in the interests of
European peace.
An Appeal to the Queen.
London, Aug. 24.— All of the Par-
nellite members absent in Ireland will
return to London to-morrow in season
to take part in the debate in the house
of commons. Notice was given in the
house to-day that the Parnellites would
move a resolution that an humble ad-
dress be presented to the queen to repre-
sent that the viceroy of Ire-
land has proclaimed the Na-
tional league as a dangerous
association: that no information has
been furnished to parliament to justify
the proclamation by which her majesty's
subjects are to be rendered liable to be
punished as criminals without judicial
inquiry into the nature of their aets.land
that the house in the absence of such in-
formation prays that said proclamation
shall not continue in force as to the as-
sociation therein described.
The Osteinl Riot.
Ostend, Aug. 24.— of the Bel-
gian fishermen who were charged upon
by the gendarmes yesterday and wound-
ed, have since died. A number of the
Ostend fishermen seized two English
boats to-day. and when ordered to aban-
don them refused to do so. The gen-
darmes thereon fired at them, wounding
four, one fatally.
The civic guards have been replaced
by military detachments, who have
taken possession of the quays. A
proclamation has been issued forbidding
the assembling of crowds.
Rioting was renewed later in the day.
In endeavoring to quell the disturbance
the authorities resorted to the use of
artillery, killing two of the rioters and
wounding several, four seriously.
Sharply Criticised.
London, Aug. 24.— Joseph G. Biggar
and Sir William Harcourt addressed a
large open-air meeting in Westminster,
to-night. Mr. Harcourt quoted from
Mr. Chamberlain's Birmingham speech
of Saturday evening to show that that
gentleman admitted that Ireland was
free from all crime, and said that, not-
withstanding the fact that Mr. Chamber-
lain and Mr. Collings opposed coercion
after the Phoenix pars murders, they
now countenance it, at the same time
admitting that Ireland is tranquil.
Escape of Ayoub Khan.
London, Aug. 24.— Dispatches from
India state that Ayoub Khan, Avith his
principal followers, has escaped, and is
hurrying toward Herat with all possible
speed. The Afghan officials are en-
deavoring to overtake and capture him,
but with small chance of success.
The Cholera.
London, Aug. 24.— At Malta, during
the past twenty-four hours, there were
five new cases of cholera and one death.

No information of the whereabouts of
Catcher Caiiender, of the St. Paul base
ball club, whose mysterious disappear-
ance has been announced in the Globe,
had been received up to last night.
The Globe telegraphed to his home at
Greencastle. Ind., but the telegram has j
not been answered. When the club j
went to Duiuth a week ago last [
Wednesday Cullender remained in j
St. Paul, telling Manager Barnes that he;
was going to visit an old friend. at 120
West Susan street. He was excused
for the trip, and billed to catch the first
game in the Minneapolis series, but
failed to put in an appearance: Thomas
O'Connell. at 120 West Susan street, was
questioned by a GLOBE reporter last
night, but had not seen Caiiender at all.
Caiiender was a school boy playmate of
O'Connell. and Calender's " brother
wrote O'Connell some time since
that the ball player had
signed with the St. Paul club
and would call to see him. O'Connell
has been expecting a visit from Caiien
der. but he never showed up. There is
a rumor that Cullender's relations, who
are well-to-do, telegraphed him money
to return home last week, but his ab-
sence is so far unexplained.

Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 24.— Applica-
tion to continue the injunction came up
in the equity court to-day. before Judge
Taylor. There was a large array of
legal talent, all the prominent lawyers
in the city being employed either on
one side or the other. On behalf of the
crown application was made for a post-
ponement of the argument for two
weeks, the interim injunction to stand
meantime. The crown pointed out that
it wanted to examine the plaintiff on his
affidavit, as also Rowand, who has
charge of the property, on his. The
plaintiff is in Montreal and a commis-
sioner was appointed to take evidence,
which will be recorded in shorthand ami
sent to the judge here. Rowand will be
examined here next Friday. The crown
also set up that it had to put in a large
dumber or affidavits, Premier
Torquay's among the number,
hence the necessity of postponement.
The application was granted without
argument and the case will not be ar-
gued for two weeks. Meanwhile, how-
ever, other injunctions are being ap-
plied for. and as they are not ex-parte
they will be argued "when the motions
are made, which probably will be by
the end of the week.

It is stated that" he is paid by the
Canadian Pacific railway to take the
action he has done. The company has
a paid agent employed going about
among the farmers trying to get them
to object to the building of the road and
apply for injunctions. The citizens
near Maries talk of riding him on a rail.
A torchlight procession in honor of
Norquay on his return home is expected
as the people wish to show him they are
at his back in the crisis. The feeling
continues intense, the pdpulace being
ready to resist any act of the Dominion
government tending to interference
with this pet scheme.
It is reported here to-night in railway
circles that Supt. John M. Egan, now of
the St. Paul, Minneapolis ft Manitoba
road, but formerly general superin-
tendent of the Canadian Pacific railway
here, is going to return to the service of
the latter company in the Northwest.
It was always thought his transfer to
the Manitoba road was at the instance
of Van Home, Stevens and Smith for
carrying out their policy. The recent
retirement of Stephen and Smith from
the Manitoba road would give color to
the report. Sir Stephen, Sir Smith and
Van Home arrived here this evening
from the Pacific coast. All refused to
discuss the railway situation, but hints
were dropped by them that they were
going to persist in their policy of oppo-
sition to the Red River Valley to the
hitter end.
An Extraordinary Scheme of a
Noted Boston Capitalist.
San Francisco Examiner.
One of the most interesting fights ever
made for the control of a railway is now
going on in New York city, and as it is
over a Pacific transcontinental line, the
longest of any on the continent, much
curiosity and some anxiety is excited
among Pacific coast railway officials as
to the result. It is over the control of
the Northern Pacific that the fight is
being made, and certain points are in-
volved which make the contest of the
liveliest and keenest nature. A few
days since the Examiner published a
dispatch from New York that Elijah
Smith, president of the Oregon
Transcontinental company, had is-
sued circulars to stockbrokers . and
holders of small parcels of Northern Pa-
cific stock, asking their aid in forming a
new directorate and management of the
line. There was nothing startling in
this. Elijah Smith on two occasions
sent out the same kind of circulars. But
tlien the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion property was not controlled by the
Union Pacific line. The Oregon Trans-
continental company is an Oregon Nav-
igation concern. It has been Smith's
ambition ever since the completion of
the Northern Pacific to be its president,
but the present directors, who have
been connected with the road *in their
present capacity ever since the company
organized, have been very careful to
keep it aloof from the ambitious Boston
capitalist. The story of the latter's
connection with he property dates
back* to the famous times when Henry
Villard came into the financial 'world.
lie organized the Oregon Transeonti-
company to build the Northern
Pacific, the Transcontinental receiving
a certain number of shares of Northern
Pacific stock and a certain amount of
money for the completion of every.
twenty miles. When the Northern Pa-
cific was completed the Oregon Trans
continental owned over 150,000 shares of
Northern Pacific stock. Then came
Villard's failure and decapitation, and
Elijah Smith was made president of the
navigation company, which owned the
Transcontinental, and at Northern Pa
cific meetings he voted the stock con-
trolled by his company. He now wants
to secure the proxies of small holders so
he can vote a majority at the annual
meeting of the Northern Pacific in Sep-
tember. Now the question is, if. Elijah
Smith makes himself president, will the
I'nion Pacific control the Northern Pa-
cific as the controller of the Oregon Rail-
way ami- Navigation company? If it
should the combination would make the
most pwverf nl one of the kind . in the,
world. V . ;) -f ;-":■;

The Only Sensation a Flash of
New YonK, Aug. 24.— Ives refer-
ence case was begun to-day before ex-
Judge Noah Davis. Henry S. Ives was
placed on the ..witness stand. He Avas
examined by Algernon S. Sullivan, at-
torney for Assignee Cromwell. He
identified the ledger opened by the firm
April 1, 1S87, stud turned over to the
assignee, as being the current ledger of
the firm. He remembered referring to
the ledger preceding this one a short
time before the assignment was made,
perhaps ten days previous. He could
not remember "who he asked for the
book. When.it was brought to him he
believed that he referred to the account
of one of the parties, but he could not
tell what he did with it after he was
through. ,
"I don't know when the books were taken
or by whom."
"If any one but yourself took them from
your oflice from whom did be receive per-
mission or orders?" asked the attorney.
••I can't answer that question."
'•Because I don't know."
In response to Mr. Adams, his attorney.
Mr. Ives said there was nothing lacking in the
books turned over whichwould prevent the as-
signee from making a complete schedule. In
reply to the referee, who questioned Mr.
Ives, sharply, he reiterated that he know
nothing about the books stolen or when or
how they were taken.
"It is your duty to produce these books un-
less it is" out of your power,' and no one be-
lieves it Is out of your power unless you give
pretty good reasons."
"I submit that is not a fair remark, coming
from the referee," remarked Mr, .Adams.
"I make it for the protection of the witness.
He is putting his assignment in great jeop-
ardy, If be knows anything about the where-
abouts of the books he should say so. I there-
fore repeat my question. Do you or do you
not possess any knowledge or information as
to the whereabouts of those books)"
"I object?" remarked Mr. Adams.
"Yes, I suppose so»" quietly* remarked the
Mr. Ives replied faintly that he had
none whatever. The referee plied ques-
tion after question to the witness, but
failed to change his statement. Mr.
Adams moved to strike out all these
questions and answers, but the motion
was promptly denied. George II. Stay-
ner was next called. He had not seen
the missing books for a long time before
the assignment was made. lie did not
know that any one had particular suiter-
vision over the books. Witness had as
much supervision as any one of the
partners. As soon as he learned the
books were missing he instituted a
search for them. "I asked Mr. Ives and
others if they had seen them and made
a pergonal search. 1 have no idea where
the books are."' He had them at Iris
house frequently, but they had been re-
turned and seen* at the oflice since. At
this juncture Mr. Adams moved for ah
I adjournment. While he was speaking
the flagstaff.: on an adjoining building
was ! struck by, lightning. The report
j and Hash startled everybody in the room
| except Mr. Ives. ; The adjournment was
had. ■

A Grand Army Man Gets Into a
Peck of Trouble.
Special to the Globe,
BaiIaboo, Wis., Aug. 24.— Post No.
0, G. A. K., of this place, has just had a
sensation, which has caused consider-
able talk, in the shape of a court mar-
tial, in which the accused was a prom-
inent business man of this place and a
member of the post in good standing.
The accused is a manor family, and em
ployed in his household was a very pre-
possessing young domestic. It had
been rumored for some time that the
servant girl had been too intimate with
the head of the household, but no steps
were taken in the matter until members
of the post deemed it necessary to inves
tigate it for the good of the order. A
court martial was accordingly ordered.
The general charge was that of conduct
unbecoming a gentleman and a member
of the order. The specification was
adultery. There were several witnesses
before the court martial, including the
wife of the accused, who gave some
pretty strong testimony. which seemed to
show that her husband had at least been
on very affectionate terms with the serv-
ant girl. The other witnesses were
neighbors of the accused, who corrobo
rated the wife's testimony in some par
ticulars. The worst, however, that was
shown against the accused was that he
had on v several occasion a hugged and
kissed the hired girl with the utmost
enthusiasm,.'^ and that the domestic
seemed Io enjoy the operation hugely.
and that the servant girl ' had reclined
upon the bed of the accused on a certain
occasion while the accused was lying
therein, although the latter was under
the bed clothes while the girl was out-
side. After hearing the court martial
found the accused guilt}', and sentenced
him to dishonorable discharge from the
post. The findings and sentence were
forwarded to 'department headquarters
at Eau Claire for action thereon by the
department commander. It is rumored
that the findings and sentence have been
disapproved at department headquarters
—not because the: department com
mander considers kissing. servant girls
as conduct which is becoming a gentle
man and a member of the order, but be
cause, .it is . understood, of certain in
formalities in the trial as conducted by
the court here.';
