"Our na tion will be directed by the college and self-made men. A faithful discharge of our duty to free government is consist ent with the most exemplary and reli gious life, and is a Christian obligation. If the good citizens would take part in the political conflicts, our national offices would be filled by honest and competent men. The poisons of politi cal corruption arc very destructive in their influences upon communities and nations. Some think we are in a decay as to our political in stitutions. But let them look to the early days of the republic. They will see that the virtue and Intelligence of the people has always been the safety of the nation, and always will be. We must purify our political systems and we will advance to a higher civilization. Our young men must be true to their manhood and destiny and our next cen tennial will see a "world emancipated and our 'lag soaring nearer the sun and brilliant with --tars and the God of Day will set not on the boundless triumphs of our government of the people."

The supreme court yesterday handed down the following decisions: Hugh Thompson and F. S. Demers, re spondents, vs. Polk County Commis sioners, appellants. Syllabus— A county is not liable for a defect or want of efficiency in the plan of a ditch established pursuant to the provisions of general laws 1883. chap. 108. Neither is it liable for the negli gence or failure of a contractor to whom a job is let by the county auditor to per form the work in accordance with the plan adopted. Order reversed. Mitchell, J. State of Minnesota, Alice Miller, re spondent, vs. the City of St. Paul, ap el hint, yllabus— A city is under no obliga tions to light it streets, and its mere neglect to do so is not a ground of lia bility unless the charter especially im poses the duty. But inasmuch as a street partially obstructed or out of repair, may be reasonably safe if lighted, but dangerous if unlighted; the fact that it was or was not lighted may be material upon the question of negli gence. The existence of a step properly constructed from a sidewalk to a street crossing is not a defect so as to render a city liable for accidents to pedestrians. If such a .step is properly constructed, in the first instance, the city will not be liable for accidents caused by its gel ling out of. repair . without proof that .some of the city officers or agents . hav ing charge of such matters have actual notice of such defect, or proof that the defect had existed for such a length of time that the city authorities in the ex erclse of reasonable diligence in the supervision of such matters would or should have discovered it. Order ic versed. Mm ui'.i.i., J. Other Courts. In the matter of the assignment of Daniel Simpson and Nellie M. Simpson, comprising the Simpson Tool company.

MONEY IS GENERALLY EASY. .*'/;;: " "" " • |: K. The Storm Affects Business a Little, But :f a Fair Volume is Reported— Collections Good. New York, Jan. 27.— 1 i. G. Dun &- Co. In their weekly review of trade say: Business, both domestic and foreign, has a more encouraging appearance. Money is reported close at a very few distant points, but compa atively easy everywhere else, and collections are fair in all quarters, with substantial improvement where tardiness has been observed. The volume of business has been affected by storms and the block adbig of railways, but is generally fair, for the season, and exchanges outside of New York are 3.7 per cent larger than for the same period last year. It is a decidedly healthy symptom that there is general absence of speculative excitement, and prices of products are in most cases settling toward a more natural level, thougn the average is sustained by the scarcity of anthracite coal, the scanty supply of vegetables aud the advance in cotton goods. For eign trade in December was much more favorable than early statements indi cated, the DECREASE IN* EXPORTS of cotton, breadstuff's and provisions being partly balanced by increase in cattle, petroleum and minor articles. The excess of exports over imports of merchandise is $21,130,783 for the month, with outgoing silver exceeding incom ing gold by $679,039, indicates a with draws^ of . capital, exceeding by $12, --00O,O0t}'tjIie -jyerage required for interest payine*its.4ind undervaluations, but for the past six months receipts of foreign capital have apparently exceeded with drawals by $55,000,000. The returns for January thus far indicate an increase of 5 per cent in the imports at Mew York thus far show an increase of 14 percent. As the exports exceeded imports by $20,000,000 last January, these reports ' point to a continued though smaller ex cess. Iron is perceptibly sustained in price for the time by the enforced cur tailment of production, but the feeling prevails that resumption of work in the coal mines maybe followed by-lower prices of iron. .In all branches of this great industry the decrease in railroad demand is felt. The success of the Atchison and some other railroad com panies in placing loans, and the recent improving demand for bonds, do not alter the fact that sales of securities to actual investors Continue much behind those of corresponding weeks last year. A BETTER TONE in the market lias been observed for two days, but the business is i still mainly left to speculators, and the in ability of promoters to place securities may retard new - railway building for some time to come, though current re ports still show large gross earnings. The storms, the strikes and the recent disagreement about rates may be felt a little later. In other branches of specu lation the tendency has been toward a lower level; wheat has declined 1 cent, pork 25 cents per barrel, sugar % cept, . coffee )4 cent and oil 43^ cents, but oats have advanced IK cents, lard and hogs, are a shade stronger, and tin has ad* vanced a fraction. There is a better movement in wool, but quotations aver age a little lower. Cotton is unchanged! while prices of many makes of bleached and brown goods and fancy prints have been advanced, and . print cloths are quoted at 53.94 bid for. 645. The boot and shoe business is fairly active, witlv shipments exceeding last year, and. prices of almost all kinds of leather, favoring buyers. The business failures during the last seven days number for tbe United States 268. for Canada 49. a LUC U UItCU kJllllCO «uo, 1U1: v ciiiaud **j, a total of 317, as. compared with 314 last 1 week and 271 for ■ the corresponding ' week of last year. , ; ... THE WIDOW VICTORIOUS. 7 i Verdict Against Chicago Knights 1 ; of Pythias for $3,000. Chicago", Jan. 27.— 1n Judge Alt -1 geld's court to-day a verdict for 3,900 was returned by a jury against the Knights of Pythias in favor of Elizabeth Zawistovvsky, the widow of John A. G. ' Zawistowsky. This is the second case in which the widow has come out vie • torious, the former being against the • Knights and Ladies of Honor for insur ■ ance money. The case is a very pe -1 culiar one. Zawistowsky was a West ' side upholsterer and a member of all of - these lodges. In 1882 Zawistowsky got ■ into trouble with a brother member of • the Knights of Honor. He was ar rested, but gave bail, His enemy 7 succeeded in getting the bonds i men to give Zawistowsky up, and fearing that he would go to jail, the persecuted man fled June 15, 1882. The 1 next day he wrote a letter to his wife, • in which he said he intended to commit suicide. A few weeks later a body was recovered, but the son and a Mr. Giebe i did not recognize it as Zawistowsky's, although the resemblance was striking. • One tning made this decision strong, ; and that was that Zawistowsky had • only long chin whiskers, while the ; corpse had a full beard apparently. Not • long afterward developments snowed • that the body at the morgue had not a ; full beard, but that the long chin' whiskers had been washed around by the waters until they covered the entire face. After three years suits were coin . menced. and two juries have already ; been convinced of the identity of the '. body at the rnoreue. ■ not A MISSING PREACHER. The Pastor of a New York Church Mysteriously Disappears. ; New York, Jan. 27.— The pastor of 1 the Congregational church in Battle : Creek, Mich., Rev. Theo W. Haven, has been missing since Jan. 11. His : health being somewhat impaired by overwork, and from worrying upon certain theological questions, induced him to send in his resignation from New York city. This his church refused to accept and instead voted him a three months, leave of absence. The night of ; Jan . 10 he remained at the St. Denis' > hotel, in this city, leaving the next day,* since which time his friends haye been! unable to find any trace of his where-: • abouts. They are fearful that some ac [ cident may have happened him.
