To Hobble Federal Jndges
The recent decision of Judge Locbren, of Uie U.iud States circuit court, enjoiting the rffic era of the state it .iiuLcuta from enforcing the law of tha' state in regard to freight rates adds a new chapter to the usur patlon of Federal courts. It 'Will do doubt have an effect con trary to what was intended by it. fact, it will result in the introduction ot bills at the next session of congress for circum scribing the powers of federal courts by depriving them of all authority ti issue wru- t In junction, tnbeas corpus, and prohibition in cassi.-s wberein the law of a state is c;il led in question And it is no1, unlike jy that Euch a measure may be enacted into law. In 1802 the Democrats, at Jefferson's sug gestion abolished the circuit court of the United States ere ated by the Uth of congress in February, 1801; and that pre cedent is receiving the attention ot all congressmen who favor the preservation of the reserve rights of the states and trial by jury The nex.t great struggle in : his country will be like the first a struggle against the usurpation of federal judges, whom Jefferson so apuy de sciibed as the sapper and min ers of depatism Keokuk Dem ocrat.' ShBu)s Gowns to Match Her Hats From the New York Press. Speaking ot buying fall gowns, as most women are now, one youDg society woman in town says that she always buys a bat and then gets a gown to match. "For the bat is what really counts with one's looks, you know," she says. "All my street suits are to be absolutely plain." she confided to a friend with whom she was talking on this all-absorbing topic. ' I'm a cr.ink on plain clothes, but on the coats ot my suits I shall have collars of velvet of the same color as the trimming on my hat, which I gel to wear with it Get a bat so loud that it will smash the season's mil liuery lecord, but have the suit plain if you want to look disungu shed. I saw Mrs. "Tom' Pierce at a tea not long ago. There wasn't a bit of tiimming on her t-uit anywhere, but she attracted twice as much attention as anyone else there." The Globe-Democrat inti mates that Raosevelt hesitated a moment, set the filled glass of champagne down, looked confused and then grabbed it up and tossed it off like a 6ea soned veteran. It was at St. Louis at the banquet given him at tbe'Jefferson hotel and while be was responding to a toast in bis honor. Fairbanks, butter milk, cocktails and denuncia tion all faded from the ezecu live mind in the twinkling of an eye, and be defied teetotalers and prohibitionists with as much sang froid as he grants immunity to fat contributors. Federal Dictation. It looks as if Teddy were losing ground in bis own state. At the recent primaries in Brooklyn, Mr. Roberts. Presi dent Roosevelt's postmaster, was defeated, and Robert A Sharkey, whom President Roosevelt refused to reappoint as tiaval officer of tbe port of New York, won in bis district. There was a good deal of chat ter on tbe part of Woodruff and Roberts and Sharkey as to how tbe result was brought about. 'Chairman Woodruff issued a statement declaring that be bad not interfered in the Sharkey district. Tbe Sharkey people declared that be bad. This is a pointer showing what may be expected m tbe Johnson-Burton fight in Cleveland, Ohio. The peop'e almost always rebel agaiDst dictation from federal officers, great or small Quin cy Herald. Fell Through. Messrs Hargiove and Wood of Jacksonville, III., have been in the city trying to trade J. M Proctor out of one of the finest and best improved farms in tbe state ot Missouri. They bad a 30.000 acre Texas ranch val ued at $195,000 that they want ed to swap to Mr. Proctor for his $128,000 farm and for him to pay cash difference of G7,- 000, but be could not see it that way. LonjweH-Woodruff. There is to be a pretty home wedding at Mr. and Mrs. John L mgwell's near Ely, Saturday 12 m. Godfrey Woodruff, of La Jaunta, Colo., will lead Miss Aggie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Longwell, to the altar, when Rev. Ingman will pronounce them man and wife. The young people were sweet hearts in Quincy where they at one time resided. May their lives be filled with tbe happiness which comes from a true mating. A Suggestion. We would respectfully make this suggestion to all readers of the Monroe Citv Democrat Trade with tbe business men who through its columns ask you for your trade. They have shown a friendliness toward you, they invite you to their places of business and as we know them well, personally, we believe they will give you 100 cents value for your dollar, and if any article should turn out to be different from their representation we believe they will make it good without mul tiplicity ot words. Having that confidence in them, we again suggest: Trade witb tbe advertisers in the Democrat. MR. VOTOW'S SUCCESSOR Is Mr- Russell From the Beardstown Division of the Burlington Road master Also Resigns. Mrs. John McGIasson, of Louisiana, arrived Friday to spend several days witb the friends of her girlhood. G. Mitchell and W. Schoen- born went over to Quincy, Sat vrday for a few days visit. C. L. Carpenter will serve a toothsome dinner, a pleasing supper and a delightful lunch eon to the Odd Fellows at the O. of H. hall Friday. Mr. Carpenter is noted for serving good things nicely and when it comes to a crowd of 400, be will simply be in his el ement and "do tbincs un brown." Lost Out. The Monroe High School team met the Paris High School team on the gridiron and went to grass to tbe tune of 11 to 5. Roy Buell was "knocked silly." and Paul Bottorff sprain- an ankle so badlv that Dr. McNutt had to give it surgical attention the next morning. Tbe Monroe team is beavv enough, willing enough, bui there is hard work before good gridiron work can be done. Miss Vivian V. Veach lett Saturday for Chlllicothe to en ter a business college. Miss Annie Longacre, of Ely, has been the guest of her cousin Mrs. C. L. Carpenter. Yesterday's Journal announc ed tbe resignation of J E. Votow as superintendent of the H. & St. Jo, and also stated that bis successor would probably be a gentleman Irom Beards town. III. and as usual tbe Journal is correct. It was an nounced at Brooktiold yester day that Mr. Russell, who Das held the position of trainmaster of tbe Beardstown division of tbe Burlington would be Mr. Votow's successor. The change will take effect on tbe 15th inst Mr. Bloomer, roadmaster of the eastern division of the H. & St Jo., it is said, will also resign. Rumor has it that the derail ment of tbe Eli passenger train at New Cambria, has something to do witb the resignations of both Mr. Votow and Mr. Bloom er. Tbe Brcoktield Areus of yesterday contained a column article regarding tbe charges that were printed in Saturday's Journal from which tbe follow ing extracts are taken: To be frank about tbe matter tbe Brookfield division has been having all sorts of troubles of its own, which may be accounted for by three rea sons. One, tbe unprecedented heavy business the greatest ever in its history, and certain ly too much for a singlej track line. Second, and foremost, tbe condition of tbe track. Dur- ng the past summer it has been torn up from one end to tbe other by the laying of new steel. Third, the scarcitv of men for service in almost every department. Referring to tbe Brook held division and its troubles, waving all teebni. cal. ethical or analytical verb age, when the roadbed is aug mented by new ties in lieu of tbe many rotten 'Onea, and the line is double tracked, then a different condition will come to pass. Practical railroading may not say this, but common sense does. In tbe meantime, Mr. Russell, from Beardstown, will become tbe official head of the Brookfield division. He is said to be an all-round railroad man. Indeed, he wiii have an opportunity to demonstrate here on tbe the Brookfield di vision. He will certainly find tbe path anything but a rosy one. However, he will be given more force. Trainmaster W. F. Thieboff will be made assist ant superintendent, and Con ductor E. D. Dabney will be made trainmaster. This will make it possible for tbe train master to be out on tbe lines riding the different trains while tbe assistant superintendent in the offices here will help to bear some of the burdens here tofore imposed upon tbe super intendent and chief dispatcher.

Wondering. Jefferson Noel of Paris, struck tbe city in a wondering mood Monday. You know be is as sessor and be was wondering if the 6Worn statements given him will be half as great as tbe Ad ministrator would find tbem to be if you died tomorrow. Bush. There has been a frightful ac cident at Stoutsville. Joe Bush and two daughters, of Florida, were in a wagon and tbejteam became frantic at sight at tbe cars. It ran away and tbrowing tbe occupants from tbe wagon, injured Mr. Bush fatally. He was buried at Florida i Sunday. Stands Pat. The Monroe City Democrat does not make news, it only chronicles news that others make and then it Stands Pat, unless it i9 shown that an error has been committed. "Borrowed Trouble" was not an error, regardless of what some may say and regardless of , the anger of a great Poo Bab It, that has not approved .of anything the Democrat has done for the past two years. Painful Wound. E. L. Reed, tbe meat mer chant, tied tbe wrong pair of feet ot a steer. He was chinning the front feet when biff, Mr. Reed was out in the first round. The steer kicked him on tbe left cheek, cutting him so badly that it took the services of a surgeon and tour stitcbes to close tbe wound. Won Out. Gratitude, a Monroe horse captured first at tbe State Fair in the 2:16 ring In three straight beats. Time 2:14. 2:14 and 2:15. And may be you think Jim Nickell didn't feel good. The Bans. The bans for - tbe wedding of Willian Pike and Miss Elva Moyers were published Sunday. The wedding is to be Monday, They are both nice and popular young people. Foot Ball. 0 Tbe Paris and Monroe High School teams will meet on the grid iron at Rogers Paru Satur day atternoon. We hope tbe Monroe team will practice some before playing, for it takes weight, action, knowledge, quick perception and a dash of recklessness to play tbe Rugby game as adopted and changed to suit the strenuous American youth, the Basllaas. F. W. AV Bastian and wife, of near Shell bave had a family reunion. Tad was there from Bible Names For Colts. A hostler from the Blue Gras9 has just found employ ment in one of tbe stables of a Fifth avenue man. His darky dialect is so quaint and bis stories of "Ole Kaintuck" so unique no member of .the house hold misses an opportunity to speak to him and have him say a word. i His employer said to him a few days ago, as .be, was look ing at his high steppers: "I suppose your master down South had a good many horses?" "Dat we did, sab, dat we did! And my ole master had 'em all name Bible names. Faith, Hope and Charity, Bustle, Stays and Crinoline, was all one spring's colts!" Nice Residence. J. E.
