An Interestm;' Case.
A very interestini: ca-c in which 1
uur local riewinir machine iMnldlers. are
interested, has just been handed down
bv the United Statu supreme court. ,
The case was fiockt-tod as E. S. Etn
roert vs the state of' Missouri. Tlio
former is an acetit or peddler or Singer
sewing machines. It was sought to make
him pay a peddler's license, which he
refused in order to lest tr.e. law, con
were being handled as a r.art of the
local and domestic commerce. They
werero longer the subject of interstate
traffic, but had been merged with the
mass of property within the state, so
the occupation of selling them was pro
perly a subject to state police regula
tions, and in no way contrary to federal
A Similar Killing.
Judge Windson, at St. Joseph, last
week, made the same ruling in the elec
tion contest case of Xash vs. Craig that
Judge Anthony did in circuit court in
this county in the mayoralty contest
from Tarkio. In our case Judge An
thony threw out a vote that had been
prepared Bnd cast in strict compliance
with the law, with the simple omission
of the numbering of the ticket by the
derelict judge whoso duty it was to do
this, before depositing it in the ballot
box. In St. Joseph a batch of near
three thousand votes was thrown out
on the same grounds. In both cases
these voters have been disfranchised,
through no fault of their own and after
theyhad complied fully with the pro
visions of the law, simply by the neglect
of one of the election officials. This
may be good law as construed by these
learned judges, but to the untutored it
does not look like good judgment. As it
effects two prominent offices in St.
Joseph, a decision of the supreme court
will doubtless be asked on this point.--Tarkio
German Concession to Silver.
The vote by which the reichstag in -ntructed
the government to isue in
vitations for an international money con
ference is in the nature of a surprise. It
is also full of significance. Such prop
ositions have generally come from the
United States. If Germany should de
cide to enter into an international agree
ment for the coinage of silyerupon some
reasonable basis, it would not be difli
cult to secure the co operation of one or
more other European powers and thus
equipped we would be able to settle the
silver problem. That it can be settled
without the co-operation of other na
tions is firmly believed by manv Ameri
cans, but it is in the nature of an un
dertaking that is large and hazardous.
There is loo much silver in the world
for one nation, even of apparently in
finite resources like the United States
to hold it up, and there is not enough
jfold in the world to supply all the na
tions with metniic currency. For the
world to attempt to do its business on
the yellow metal alone is almost as ridic
ulous as it would bo for the United
States alone to float all the white metal
as money. Germany is a powerful
factor in modem Europe and vith her
assistance the problem would become
an entirely different one.
2KKM Pounds.
Senator Kennish came up from the
state capitol Siturday on some impor
tant legal business, and took time to
give us a nleasant call and cordial hand
shake. He informs us that his bill to
establish the weight of a cir. load of
stock, has been ordered printed to have
precedence. The bill establishes a new
section to article 3. chapter 42. and as
all our farmers and stock shippers are
. interested, wo give the new section,
which is ns follows:
Section 2G74a. For the purposes of
class H. section 2074, article:!, of chap
ter 42, Revised Statues of Misouri,189!i,
twenty thousand pounds shall con
stitute a car-load of rattle, hogs or
mixed live stock;and in any and all cases
where a car shall be loaded to its carry
ing capacity, with cattle w hogs or
mixed live stock, the weight of such car
load being more or less then twenty
thousand pounds, then the same rate
per one hundred pounds, for the trans
portation of such car-load for any dis
tance in this state, ns applies to the
transportation of a cat -load of twenty
thousand pounds of cattle or hogs or
mixed live-stock a similar distance.siiall.
in like manner, apply to such car-load of
more or less than twenty thousand
Sec. 2. All acts and parts of acts in
consistent with this act are hereby re
pealed. T.t to 4:t.
By a vote of 79 to 4.'l the lower houso
of our legislatureon Tuesday last,passed
the bill introduced by Holt county's rep
resentative, Mr. Murray, providing for
tho separation of the Statu University
atd Agricultural College, and it now
goes to the senate. Mr. Murray closed
the long and spirited debate, advocating
the passage of the bill on the theory
that the agricultural class demanded it,
and that the stato farm could never
amount to anything so long as it re
mained a part of the University.
The bill, as it goes to tho senate, es
tablishes an agricultural college and
school of mines, but does not provide
for a removal of the School of Mines and
Metallurgy from itolla. Tho two are to
be governed by a board of lifteen cura
tors, one from each congressional dis
trict. Section 10 reads:
The Agricultural College shall be lo
cated at or near some town or city in the
State of Missouri that has at least one
trunk or main line of railroad, and on a
tract of land of not less than 5()0 acres,
naturally well adapted to farming and
fruit growing.
Ninety days after the act goes into ef
fect the curators sliall select a suitable
site for the college, and take into con
sideration offers of land or money. The
farm at Columbia is V be sold, and &!.
000 of tho proceeds thereof refunded to
Iloone County. This is all tho indem
nity the bill provides for, notwithstand
ing the fact that the citizens of the
county are out $90,(XX). Tho act carries
an appropriation of 8.10,000.

career by leaving tho country in a more

Death of Win. Hanks, Sr., the
First White Settler of
IIIt Coimtv.
William Hanks. senior, one of the
lirst settlers of Holt county, d;ed at his
westward bound vessel. He first struck
America at Mobile, Ala., but afterward
returned to England. His next trip to
America found him at Baltimore, Md.,
alter wiuh lie drilled about rroro one
place and business to another, until
1WI, at tho ago of 19, ho went to New
Orleans, and hired as a deckhand on a
Mississippi steamboat. In 1831 became
to St Louis, and the next year went up
the Missouri river on a steamboat as a
deckhand to Yellowstone - this being
the first steamboat that ever ascended
the Missouri river to that point. Hn
stopped on this trip and cut wood
"J'j miles below where Forest City
now stands, and nine years afterward,
returned and settled upon the same
spot, and entered the land. Ho claimed
that next to Lewis and Clark, lie was
the first, white man that ever trod the
soil of Holt county.
When first settling in Holt county, he
engaged in the mercantile business with
one Mcintosh, as a partner, but tho en
terprise lost them money and they soon
quit. In 1844 he put in a flat boat ferry
at Iowa Point, and this made him some
money. In l&lli he sold this ferry and
wont into the timber and farming busi
ness, by which ho made considerable
monev, and acquired about 1000 acres
of land.
His will was written about fourteen
ears ago by E. VanBuskirk, Esq.. of
llnscitv, and is witnessed by r. Van
Buskirk and H. E. Harrison, of Mound
Citv. His estate, it is estimated, will
amount to some 820.000 to 825.000. The
will was filed with Judge Alkire on
Tuesdav, and bv its terms tho home
farm, together with all live stock, etc..
thereon, as well as 1C0 acres of land in
tno bottom near Chesney's, goes to
Catharine Galbraith. his neice, who has
for so manv vears kept house for him
53.000 bank stock in the Frazer& Mc
Donald bank nt Forest City, together
with tho money arising from thcsale of
100 acres of land (subsequently sold it
is said to Ihomas Cottier) are created
as a trust fund to be loaned at interest
ar.d cared for until the youngest child
of William Banks. J now born, or that
mav hereafter bo born, shall become of
age. when the same is then to be divided
equally between said children. His real
estate, except that part given Catharine
Galbraith ar.d the 100 acres directed to
be sold, goes to William Banks. Jr., (tho
old gentleman s onlv child) for life, and
then to the said William Hanks, Jrs..
child-en. in equal parts. There are, it
is said. .T20 acres of this last devised
land: and all taxes, repairs and improve
ments to bo made therenn during all the
vears of the handling of this trust fund
(which it is estimated may be pnywhere
from 40 to GO years) are to bo paid for
out of the interest of the said trust
fund -thus leaving to William Banks.
Jr., the use and benefits of all said 320
acres of land during his entire life time,
without himfelf so much as being at
the expense of paying the taxes on the
land, building n fence or digging a well
The will also provides for making im
provements on said lands nut of the in
terest on said trust fund.
There seems to be no disposition made
bv the will of the balance and residue
of tho estate, such as money, notes, and
the like which we are told will amount
to several thousand dollarp. William
Banks, Jr., it is suggested, will probably
inherit this large sum. under the law.
Catharine Galbraith is made execu
trix of tho will, with directions that she
shall not be required to give bond as
such executrix.
Deals In Dirt.
Xotwith standing tho blizzards of the
past munth, February led to a general
revival in reirt estate business, and the
result was one of tho largest months in
totals for many years although it iiad
but twenty three business days, and the
figures are eminently satisfactory to all
parties. The number or home and site
n.'ors who h:yo been 6hown around dur
ing the month have been unusually
large, nnd tho daily record of real estate
transfers shows that tho percentage of
buyers has been sufficient to make it
more than worth while to pay attention
to inquiries: The total transactions in
the office of the recorder, obtained from
tho Real Estato Mimeograph, W. H.
Richards publisher, for the month end
ing March 2. 1895, were as follows:
Total value of warranty deeds filed,
6192,8m); value of quit claim deeds, p.1,

Chattle mortgages tiled, 610,917; re
Ita8es,87,:t35. The total value of all transactions for
tho munth were 8353,430.
Tho totals for tho week ending Satur

any ono week for many years, and it is
thought by many never to have been

He Was Kieii, Yet so Poor. I
One of the poorest couples with tho
wealthiest names, that ever struck any
country, came into Oregon Tuesday, and
presenting themselves to Judge Alkire,
requested a marriage license and desir
ed to be wedded. They had come to
town over the roads about seventeen
miles in a lumber wagon, with a set of
half-worn harness and two small ponies.
Upon arriving here tho man mac e his
team fast to tho hitch rack, and leaving
the woman behind, proceeded to the
court house alone, and confronted
Judge Alkire. He looked to bo about
forty years old. and gave his name as
Henry Kich, and spreading out his
wealth upon tho table, showed that all
the money ho possessed in the world
was represented by two quarters, live
dimes and a copper one cent piece; mak
mg in all one dollar and one cent. He
said ho wanted to get married and want
ed to do so bad. The judge informed him
that it would take one dollar to pay
Mr. Moore for issuing tho license alone,
and two extra dollars were necessary to
pay for being married. He then got el
oquent and pleaded for tho judge to
marry him without tho fee and agreed
to pay tho same later. He was very
persistent an 1 ottered to mortgage the
team or tho wagon and harness or all of
them; and finally even offered to pawn
the coat off his back. The judge final
ly told him to go and bring tho woman
in. aiid if she seemed to want to marry
as badly as ho did that he, tho judge,
wo-ihl try ami manage in some way to
get them married, feo or na feo. Tho
fellow went out but soon returned.
bringing with him a small red faced
woman, and cariying in one hand the
halters from his horses. Upon being
questioned she told the judge that her
name was Mary Million, that she was
thirty-six years old. and that she was a
widow with four small children at home.
She said she wanted to marry this man
if she had to wash for tho neighbors to
get money to pay the fee, and said that
she had had nothing to eat since early
morning (it was then beetween 3 and 4
p. m.); that she was very cold from the
long drive they had taken in the open
lumber wagon to get here, and her looks
showed that she told the truth. She
further said that ono of the ponies be
longed to her, and tho other ono to the
man, that they had stopped at Bigelow
and tried to mortgage the whole outfit.
team, wagon atid harness for 85.00, with
which to get married, but failed ti find
any one who would let them hnve the
money that way; that they then went to
Mound City and tried hard to sell ono
of the ponies to get a little mjney but
failed again, and that they then drove
on here through the cold, determined to
get married in somewav beforo tho end
of that day, if possible. She said that
she had had a gold ring, but that she
had either sold or pawned that for 80
cents of the one dollar and ono cent
which tho man had piled up on the
judge's table during his first visit to the
courthouse. Hoth of them then again
put in with all the arts and arguments
at their command and begged and plead
ed with tho judge to marry them with.
otit further delay. They both offered
again to mortgage tho team to the
judge,und finally proffered to pledge the
clothes on their backs for the wadding
fee of two dollars; and the man actually
took his coat off, and threw it upon a
chair near by. This settled it. The
judge relented. Told them to be pa
tient a very few minutes, and that he
would try to make them happy without
further delay. lho license was pro
curred at once, mid tho judge then and
there married them tight as wax. and
they went on their way rejoiciBg. Thus
was consummated between Rich mid
Million, one of the most romantic mar
riages that ever occurred in Northwest
Missouri. The parti ; s.ml that they
lived about five and a half miles south
west of Craig, and that they expected to
live on CiUiinet Humes land this com

Happy Hearts.
Gerge W. Palturson and Miss
Katie Young wero united in marriage, at
the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. H. B. Young, near tho Wood's
school house, on Wednesday evening.
March Cth. I89.i. by the Kov. Henry A
Sawyers. Marriage is tho happiest and
saddest event of a person's life; it is the
promise of happiness based on tho bur
lal of present pleasures. Yet the word
is synonymous with the greatest earthly
blessings; and wo pity tho unfortunate
who are com Killed by fate s severe do
creo to trudge along life's dull pilgrim
age alone. The ceremony was in the
presence of a large company of friends
of tho young couple. Tho bride is ono
of Ho'.t's truest nnd truly womanly
daughters, who has been reared in
home of culture and refinement, and is
well fitted to make tho homo all that it
should be. Tho groom, as tho bride bo
longs to one of Holt's substantial fami
lies, and is a son of "Undo" Robert Pat
terson. Ho has quite recently purchas
ed the Jocob Rung farm, and will nt
once go to housekeeping. After tho
ceremony the guests wero served to a
bountiful repast. -Many tokens or kind
appreciation wero received by tho hap
py couple, and after showering hearty
nnd sincere congratulations, their large
circle of friends left them with their
morning beautiful with the hopes of the
day s to come. May the chain o: love
that binds their hearts together grow
stronger as tho shadows or life grow
longer: so their evening with all its glad
remembrances of earlier days may be
fragrant with deeds and precious mem
Over a Precipice.
One of the most frightful accidents in
the history of Mexican railroads, re
sulting in the killing of 104 persons nnd
tho serious if nut fatal injury of nearly
a hundred others, occurred on Friday
last, on thtt Intor-Oceanic railroad near
the City of Mexico. An excursion train
of 1200 passengers was on their return
pilgrimage from the Catholic shrine at
Sacre Monte, and when midway be
tween Timamtla and Tennngo, nnd on
roaching a sharp curve which ran close
to the edge of a high precipice, by
some means the train jumped the track
and the entire train of human freight
was precipitated down this embank
ment hundreds of feet, resulting in the
frightful loss of life mentioned above.
The enterprising nj.v territory of
Oklahoma, has passed a "jag" lull dur
ing the present legislature, enabling the
county courts to send indigent heads or
families, who are victims of any drug
habit, to tho Keeley institute at Okla
homa City, to be cured at tho expense
of the county wherein they are resident.
This is looked upon by tho people of
that territory as a measure oi economy,
as it is far cheaper to cure a man of in
ebriety than to continually jail him. It
changes him from a consumer into a
producer; from a burden to himself and
family to an independent useful citizen.

Tho horrid cigaretto lias claimed
