The statements of the different banks or our county have ap peared in the various papers of our county, and while all of them are in a safe, reliable condition, it is 6trange as to why there should be such large with drawals of money from them the ag gregate amount of withdrawals since September last aggregate the large sum of 8170,013.50, while there has been 814, 117.31 withdrawn since January last. It is true that largo investments have been made in cattle, and land rurc"nse9 in Kansas, Nebraska, and Southern Miss ouri, we hardly believe such a large sum as f 170,000, has been invested in this way. We believe a very large amount has been withdrawn from fear or timid ity caused by the financial agitation, and in this we are of the opinion that those withdrawing their funds and keepiug it at home are making a serious mistake, because their money is un doubtedly safer in any of our banking institutions than secreted at home their chances of loss are three to one by keep ing it at home; missplacing, fire and petit thieving are more likely to cause your loss at home than by bank failure. Again, all our local banks carry insur ance and thus protect its stock holders and depositors from any loss. It is truly interesting to study the iluctuations in deposits, etc., and we herewith publish a table showing the deposits in the var ious banks of our county at the time of the last three official statements.

For District Delegate. Not since 1831 has Holt county been honored with the district delegateship to a Republican national convention. Xot since 1880. has Nodaway county been so honored. Since these dates every county iu the district has been honored, and underthe rule, of rotation, we believe the district delegates to the St. Louis national convention should come tram these two counties, Nodaway and Holt. Believing this to be but just and fair, we hope the Holt county uelegatiun to the Platte City convention will present the claimBet Holt county for this honor, and name the lion. T. u. uungau as their unanimous choice. We trust the delegations from our sister counties will concede this honor to us and nominate Holt county's choice unanimously. The Republican party of the Fourth district has no puter, truer or nobler citizen within its borders, nor the Re publican party n braver, or more loyal member within its ranks. A polishes. refined, educated, dignified gentleman. who. if elected, will relied honor uiion the district, nnd command the respect and esteem of his colleagues of the Mis souri delegation. He is proud of McKin ley and McKinleyism, and being a native of Ohio,takes great pride and interest in the candidacy of Ohio's favorite son. Mr. Dungan is abundantly able to bear his share in maintaining suitable minrturH. in keeDing with the import ance of the fifth state in the Union, at SL Louis, and being free from any en I nncrlnments whatever, and his brilliant efforts as a member of the congressional committeo in the 1891 campaign, where by the Fourth district elected a Itepubli can congressman, justly, we believe, en tiles him as well as the county, to this recognition. We sincerely trust the delegates at tending the Platte City convention, will look at this matter as we do, and in re turn for Holt's former votes to Atchison, Andrew, Buchanan and Platte, they in turn will remember the old and tite say ing, "one good turn deserves another," and cast their votes in favor of Holt's candidate, the Hon. T. C. Dungan. The County Convention. The Republicans ot Holt county held thoir first convention of the 1S9G cam paign, nt Mound City cn Thursday.Apnl 2-1, 1890, at which conrention eleven delegate) were selected to represent the county in tho district convention which is callbd to meet at Platte City, on May lltb, to oelect two district delegates and two alternated to attend the national convention at St. Louis. Also to select seven delegates to the state convention which BQMtji at St." Joseph on May 12th I'OR ATTORXBV tJKNERAL, JOHN Before the People to Win. The Republicans or Holt county last wetik filmully presented the name of Hon. Jilm Kennish. of Mound City, for nomination to tho ollice of attorney- general. The endorsement is unquali fied, and the delegites to tho Spring field nominating convention from this county are instructed to uso all honor able means to secure ins nomination. It came unsought as the spontaneous ac knowledgment of his ability, integrity and peculiar fitness and trainiug for tho office, from the citizens of a county where he has lived from boyhood. Nor is his reputation confined to Holt countv. As the representative of the first senatorial district in the 37th and .13th general assemblies he at once took a front rank. Throughout these Beper- ate sessions he was looked upon as one i of the most conservative, able and de termined leaders upon the Republican side o! the senate. His ability and con servatism won for him a placo upon the most important committees at the dis posal of the president of the senate. It affords us a genuine pleasure to supplement this endorsement of Mr. Kennish's candidacy, not only on tho score of personal friendship, but en ac count of his professional ability, tested and not found wanting in many import- to select our delegates at large and their alternates to the national cjuvention, and to select 6even delegates to the stale nominating convention which meets at Springfield on July !d. The primaries to select delegates to the Mound City convention were hold on Saturday, April ISth, nt which the following were chosen delegates. L'wis A. 11. Bailey.U. O. l'rouil, 11. T. Alkire.

Tho convention then adjourned until 1:H0 p. ni. in order to allow the various committees sufficient time to make their respective reports. The convention reassembled 'it the appointed time, and tho committee on credentials reported, showing that nil delegations were full and each township was reyresented excepting that of Lin coln, and those entitled to 6eats as men tioned above. The Committeo on resolution and or der of business not being ready to re port, spicy speeches were made by Hon. X. F. Murray, nnd Hon. E. J. Kellogg, which were full of enthusiasm and earn est Republicanism. The committee on ordet of business nnd organization made their report, rec ommending that the temporary organ ization bo made permanent, and that tho order of business be as follows: 1st, selection of seven delegates to the Springfield nominating convention; sec ond, selecting eleven delegates to the Platte City district convention; third, selecting seven delegates to the St. Jo seph state convention. The committee on resolutions sub mitted the following which were adopted unanimously, and with a hurrah: Be it resolved by the Republicans cf Holt county in convention assembled, that we hereby commend to the favora ble consideration of the Republicans of the state, our distinguished fellow citi zen, Hon. John Kennish, as n man ad mirably equipped by education, exper ience and knowledge of the law, for the discharge of the office of attorney gener al, and the delegates chosen at this con vention to the state nominating conven tion to be held at Springfield nre hereby instructed to use all honorable means to secure his nomination. Be it further resolved that the inter ests of the Republican party will be best subserved by the selection of Hon. Cbauncey I. Filley for the position of bL -kC7 " Afwrwr KENNISH, OF HOLT COUNTV, i ant, cases in the trial and nppellate courts, but fur his magnificent manhood; Ins valued services to the party in every compaign since ho reached manhood. The Republican party of Missouri could nominate no man more in sym pathy with the masses of the people, be cause ho is one of them; no man better fitted to fearlessly discharge every duty, because ho knows no favorites and is devoid of fear; no man better qualified, and no man so free from incorruptabil ity, and 110 man more entitled to the honor, because of his unselfish devotion to party, and his labors in its behalf. Certainly, if auy man is entitled to a nomination by acclamation, that man is John Kenuish, of Holt county, for uttor-ney-general. The candidacy of Senator Kennish for attorney-general as als,o formally en clorsed by the Republicans of Worth county in their couaty convention on Saturday last, and on Tuesday of this week Gentry county endorsed his can didacy. In placing his name before the Re publicans of the state, Holt county does so with coufideuce in the result. He has received the endorsement of leading lie publicans of the fctute. His nomination would matetially strengthen the ticket and the convention could make no mis take in choosing him.

Seuator Kennish was called upon and in a very few but forcible words thanked the convention for their hearty endorse ment ot his candidacy for nttorney-gen-ernl, feeling as he did that it was an en dorsement ot his past official career. The convention then adjourned. Circuit Court. The present term of circuit court has started off rather slowly, and will, in all probability be a very light court. Judge Anthony who has partly recovered from his accident, came in on Monday's train and got the grand jury impaunelled and put them to work. He is in very feeble health, and in fact ho is not physically able for the strain, nnd he is showing good judgment in not pushinfi the cases to trial, and while the bar was con siderate indeed in agreeing to continue contested civil cases, we believe it would have been belter, had a special judge been called and the docket largely cleared. To add some fifty or seventy flvo cases t the August term by reason of continuance, it seems to us is asking a great deal of litigants and others August is a hot month, and Judge Anthony mav not be able to preside then. It is a very expensive piece of .- . D , i, ", ., , mnHn ,: ,ha been a mistake to continuo until the August term. The civil docket with a few exceptions was continued; here and there a dis missal was ordered and bill exception tiled. The court appointed Messrs 11. T. Alkire, S. F. O'Falion Giles Laughlin, W. E.iitubbs nud B. E. Davis as a com mitteo to enquire into the qualifications of James H. Stokes, and Haley B. Will lams to become members of the bar, nud after having the young men on the rack the greater portion of the week, they were admitted. The following grand "jurors were sworn and charged: James M. White, Jonas Elliott, W. II. Morse, Howard Teare, M. C. Wilson, J. C. Patterson, Lewis I. Moore, T. M. Hopkins, J nines Griffith, Wm McKee, Geo. Stephenson and G. W. Ballengee. Lewis I Moore was chosen as fnreman. These gentle menicompletedltheir labors on Thursday, and were discharged, having returned five true lull.. Among which were indictments ngainst Charles Chuu ing and Gertrude Taylor Tor murder. The bar will probably elect one of their number to preside next week, to hear nnd diaposo ot 11 number of stale cases, among which are the cases of the 6tate against Murray and Barrett, who are charged with highway robbery, having held up a man near Forbes about ayear ago, and who broke jail last sum mer, but were rec.iptured by Sheriff Edwards. There are some thirty five cases for.violation ot tin? liquor laws, which will also probably be disposed ot by the special judge, and by doing so, tho August term docket will be materi ally lightened.

ArrLETON & Fkeemax, Wall Decorators, Oregon, Mo. Death of Dr. Geo. A. Fiegenbaum. The dark lines of great grief rest up on all this community this week, mid Tiik Sentinel will, with patufui reiuc lance carry it to the heart of man.) 111 ttie announcement that Dr. Geurge A. Fiegenbaum, passed over the river into the great unknown bejond on Monday evening last, April U7, 1890, at the age ul 41 yeurs, his death occuring at St. Joseph's Hospital, St. Joseph, Mil, Troiu httiuture of tue esophagus. For fifteen months the deceased liaubeeu an '.nvaliu from stricture ot the esophugus, and his ntliiclion came to him while a resident nt Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and so treat was his suffering thai he was com pelled to abandon his practice and beek treatment in St. Josepli and diicao. His physicians as well us kind and ut tentive friends did all in their power to bring about Ins recovery. At a last re. sort, after an exhaustive consultation with leadiug specialists nud his ptiyai cian, it was decided the only chance was to submit to uu operation, and us a ctin sequence the patient was removed from th homn of his father. Rev. Henry Fieg- enbaum, of St. Joseph, to Si. Joseph', hospital where tlio patient was prepared and on suuuay, April oui, inn pujbi cians. took charge of the patient aud the operation was skilfully performed find was u success in every partic ular. The patient had been unable to take the proper nurishment for so long that he was greatly weakened, from the time of the operation, he was doing well until attacked by a spasm of coughing, which produced strangulations and from that time he continued growing weaker and weaker, until Monday evening he sank into that "sleep that knowe no wakme." He was born in Galena, Illinois, Janu ary 1, 1855. His father. Rev. Henry Fiegenbaum, now of St. Joseph, was a native of Prussia, Germany, and his mother, was a Miss Clara C. Kastenbudt, from Hanover. George went with his parents to Wapello, Iowa, in 1800, then to Pekin, Illinois, in 1801, thence to Quincy, Illinois, in 1807, and in 1870 to St. Jcseph. From St. Joseph Itev. Fieg enbaum was removed to Oregon, where he was stationed tor three years, during which time the subject of this sketch was taking his collegiate course. The deceased began life at this time for him self by clerking in a mercantile estab lisbment. In the fall of 1873 he went to Mt. Pleasant. Iowa, where ho took classical course at the Iowa Wesleyan University. In June 1878, he graduated with high honors, the degree ot A. B. being conferred. In 1877 he commenced the study of mediciue under Dr. Ray Bealtie. and in the fall of 187a he at tended his first course ot lectures nt the St. Joseph Hospital Medical College. Bv the removal of Dr. Beattie to South America, the deceased was obliged to choose another preceptor, which he found in the person of Dr. T. II. Doyle, of St. Joseph. He graduated in the spring of 1880, and that same year the Weslevan University couferreu upon him the degree of A. M. In July 1880, he came to Oregon and formed u part nership with Dr. (loshn, and during this partnership he was appointed county physician, this was in 18S2. He was married in October 1880, to Miss Anna B. Bradrick. a daughter of Rev. I. A Bradrick, of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and by this union three children were born, two now living, aged seven nnd three years respectively, who with their mother sur vive. In our half century journey on this earth, never have we seen a hus band and wife live so devotedly for each other as the deceased and his now bro ken hearted wife. Love was supreme with them, and hence their home was what "two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one, could possibly make it here on this earth. His venerable parents and four sisters are also left to mourn his loss. The sisters are Mrs. T. C. Steinmetz, of St. Joe, wife of a bookkeeper for the Nave & McCord Mercantile Company, Miss Anna Fiegenbaum, with toe town send & Wyatt Dry Goods Conpany.Miss Mary Fiegenbaum, who lives at home, and Mrs. Tom Curry, of Oregon. The deceased was a member of the Woodmen and Redmen lodges at Oklahoma City All the immediate relatives were in the city and were with Dr. Fiegenbaum when he died. In the solemn presence of death love should bo modest in its praise, and sit ence lay its finger upon the Iip9 ot flatt ery. Our friend was not faultless. He had his weakenesses and imperfections; whr of us have none? But under the blessed common law ot love, death nl ways pushes faults and frailties out of sight ncd memory touches with brighter color every virtue and living trait ot character. We might speak of his loyal, passionate love ot home, of the dear ones there; we might speak of bis loyal constancy in friendship, but you who knew him have felt the warm grasp of that dead hand. We might dwell on his open-handed generosity, but we believe that is known to us all. We could talk of his long and heavy suffering, but we, who have been close to him know of all this, and so our thoughts and feelings and memories are more eloquent than nny words we may write. Now let us speak of the solemn signi ficance of life which the presence of death always suggests, even to the least thoughtful. Especially do we remember, now, these words of scripture, "in the midst cf life we ure in doath. But dear reader of The Sentinel, re member this. No man holds a moment's lease ot life. And yet life is full of jeal ousies. resuntments.envyiugs and bitter ness. Little words and acts hae caused estrangements among those who ought to love each other. Some day you mean to be generous nnd forgiving. Some day you mean to tatte the hand you have not clasped lor years, nut tnut day may never come to you. "Now is the accepted time. .Now is the time tor reconcilia tion, for the offices of love, for the blessed ministry of forgiveness, fur sweet charity, the hour of true penitence, lou are waiting for tomorrow. But the cur tain may be rung down upon the last net of your life today. Dr Fiegenbaum hud many admirable traits of character; no higher tribute could be paid to any man than to say he was incorruptible; his vie as may not lime been right; they may- not have been popoulur; they might even have given pain to those whom his every wish was to have saved this pain, but he was nonest in his views and this honesty was steadfast to the tru'h as he saw it; he bated shams, uespiyed hypocrisv, and had no patience with affectation or shal low pretense; always sincere, alwavs thoughtful, he fully realized the imper fections of life and the short-comings of humanity; he pitied and was sileut; he had faith, but that faith was not in forms or set theories, but that highest and abiding faith in the love of the Creator of Love; he was heroic iu facing the end; patient and kind to all during his affliction, so that in bis presence no one was aware of the mental and physi cal struggle he waged against pain; uf fine intellect, finely developed, he was yet so retiring in disposition that only those who were closest to him insensibly were made aware of the man's remarka ble ability; his mind wns a great store house of knowledge and facts which nev er escaped him. All who became well acquainted with George Fiegenbaum liked him, for he wns generous, kind hearted, true to his home and loved ones and friends; sym pathetic :n his nature, and was always ready to do a favor or a kindness to oth ers' if in his power. There was so much of these in his nature that endeared him to' a great number, and his memory will be cherished by the many who have been made sad by his death. Short funeral services were conducted from the family residence at 2 p. m. last Wednesday afternoon, by Rev. C. II. Harmes, pastor of the German M. E church, St. Joseph, and by Elder J. Tanner, ot Lincoln, Nebraska, a former pastor of the deceased, after which the remains were laid to rest in the family lot in Ashland cemetery, St. Joseph, to await the final resurrection. Friends and relatives from a distance were in attendance to pay their last sad tribute of respect and love, and tele- grames of condolence were also received from dear one, in far awuy countries. Rey. I. A. Brmlr ck and wife, of Chicago, the venerable father and mother of the bereHve.1 wife were present. Over the Road.

He Resigns. Elder A. W. Davis, who has been pas tor of the Christian church for the past year, haB tendered bis resignation to the official board of the church. The re signation is not to take effect until the first of July, acd at Elder Davis's urgent request has been accepted by the board. It will be laid before the congregation Sunday, nud the action of the board in accepting the resignation will doubtless be approved, as Elder has finally decided to leave Warrensburg. The action of the pastor was n great surprise to the community and many members ot the congregation. There are a number of reasons which have caused Elder Davis to take this step, chief among which is the size of the con gregation, and the laborious duties im posed upon the pastor. Elder Davis is a man of ability, a tire less worker for his denomination and tho good of the community in which he lives, nnd the people of Warrensburg as well as the members of the Christian church will give him up with many pangs of sincere regret. His logical argu ments nnd forceful sermons have been felt in this city, while many have been encouraged and strengthened by the hearty hand grasp and cordial greeting which he has for all men. Warrensburg can ill afford to spare such men as Elder Davis, and it is to be hoped that he will reconsider his determination and stay with us. Warrensburg Standard Her aid. More Accreted Lands. County Surveyor Morris completed laBt week, a survey of a body of made land abuut three miles southwest of Corning, and known as the Rosehus bar. He found that the Missouri river had out away the east bank about one fourth ot n mile at its widest place, and at others from ten to twenty rods since it was surveyed by the government. But now he says all has been made back, and adjoining it n tract of land three miles in length nnd from one fourth to one and a fourth miles in width and contains a little over one thousonds acres, part ot which he says is reasonably good land. He also says that the Missouri is still cutting on the Nebraska, and is making to the Missouri side. Mr, Morris gays that several parlies have settled on this land ns homesteaders, but the adjnecet land owners claim the land under the law of accretion, and these owners had Mr. Morris to make the survey and subdivide such land. It will ultimately be in the court as the settlers intend to make a fight, claiming the land under the homestead law. Hear the Gong. A meeting of our citizens was held at the court house Wednesday evening, to hear a report as to what progress was being made by the projectors toward building the motor line between this city and Forest. Mr. Oakley for the company assured the people that they were in shape to build the road, and asked tho people to re new their subscription of 310,000 to the project. A committee consisting of T. C. Dungan, C. O. Proud, Jesse O. Fitts, W. II. Richards, T. S. Hinde and U. D. Zook was appointed to confer with Mr. Oakley and others of the company, in relation to the affnirs of the company, and to report to the citizens at a special meeting to be called by the mayor. We believe our citizenB will readily resub scribe the ten thousand whenever the company can satisfy our people that the line will be built. This is all that is wanted on thS part ot our people, and it is for these gentlemen to show this committee that such can be done by them within a reasonable time.

We saw five young men going out of town in a spring wagon, Sunday morn ing with great "long poles" sticking out the back end of the wagon. Some peo ple don't seem to have any regard for Sunday. There is great need or reforma tion along this line. We boast that we are a Christian nation, and I don't sup pose there is a nation in which the Lord's day is desecrated much more than in our own. We should teach the young of our land t properly regard and observe that Holy day. "The day of all the week the best. The emblem of eternal rest." Reporter.

For Delegate at Large. North-west Missouri should have one ot the delegates at largo to St. Louis and Hon. .T L. Uittinger, of the St. Joseph Herald, should be given the honor. Special fitness and party service constitute htm the logical candidate. Grant City Star. The editur of the Herald feels grateful to the Star for the above compliment. He desires to say, however, that while his name has been suggested in manv psrts of the state, he does not seek anything. Republicans have an important duty to perform in the selection of the proper delegation to the national convention. Location nor anything else but ability and fitness for the position should influence the selec tion of delegates. The situation is one that demands the best wisdom and closest harmony of the whole party. St. Joseph Herald. The Sexttxfl, heartily endorses every word uttered by the Star, and sincerely trusts that Major Bittioger may be chosen to re present Northwest Missouri as one of the delegates at large to the national convention at St. Louis. He is one ot the most earnest, sincere and loyal Re publicans of our state. We believe him eminently fitted for so important and dignified position and i'. would be a source of much gratification to hear of his selection. From Georgia. Lee Green, who is now in Fitzgerald, Georgia, has kindly sent us the follow ing few items concerning bis new home. His many friends here will doubtless be glad to hear from him, and to hear ot his improved health. Fitzgerald ha says has a population at 9,000, and yon will have to go three and a bait miles from side to side.
