HOJRTH PAEK UNION.
PDBysnD ITBT TODAY. WiIDIA - • • COLORADO.' There ere more newspapers published in lowa. In proportion to ita population, than in any other elate of the Union. There lea terrible coercion in our deeds which may first turn the honest man into* a deceiver, end then recon* die hint to the change. Show me the men you honor. I lenow **y that symptom better then any other what kind of a man you yourself are; for you show me there whet your ideal of manhood Is, what kind of e man you long inexpressibly to be.—Ben Johnson. Mrs. Catherine Babcock of Washing ton, D. C., widow of Colonel Babcock, who was a member of General Grant’B staff, was committed to the Govern ment insane Asylum recently, to await an investigation by the court as to her sanity. Mrs. Babcock has the idea that some one is going to steal the body of her daughter, buried in Baltimore, Md., and hold it for ran som. • Some Austrians living in Geneva conceived the project of placing a memorial tablet in the Quai du I»man, where the Empress Elizabetn was as sassinated. The authorities, however, refused their permission on the ground that it would be Improper to commem orate the deed of a madman and help to preserve his name. In place of the tablet, it Is now proposed to erect a chapel in honor of the Empress. Seventy-six vacancies exist in the Medical Department of the United States Army, for which there are comparatively few candidates. Young doctors on entering have the rank and pay of a first lieutenant, and generally promotion is more rapid than in the line of the service. It is surprising that more applications should not be received, considering the salary and rank attaching to the places. The same trouble is experienced with vacancies In the medical corps of the navy. It is a familiar example of irony in the degradation of words that ''what a is worth" has come to mean how much money he possesses; but there seems a deeper and more mel ancholy irony in the shrunken mean ing that popular or polite speech as signs to "morality" and "morals." The poor part these words are made to play recalls the fates of those pagan divinities who, after being understood to rule the powers of the air and the destinies of men, came down to the level of insignificant demons, or were even made the farcical show for amusement of the multitude. Although without knowledge of sur gery, Theodore Austin, aged sixteen, probably saved his own life the other day by the application of a little prac tical knowledge. The boy was work ing at home in Philadelphia, when he ran bis hand through a pane of glas3 and severed an artery in his wrist. He started for the hospital, but had not gone far before he realized that it would not do to wait to have the flow of blood stopped. He bound his hand kerchief tightly around his wrist, above the cut, and by sticking a pen cil through the knot, improvised a tourniquet by which he succeeded in twisting the handkerchief until the end • of the severed artery was closed. Dr. E. W. Allen, assistant superin tendent of experiment stations, con ducted by the Agricultural Depart ment, has returned to Washington, after a ten weeks’ tour of inspection of the stations in Alaska. Dr. Allen reports that all the hardy vegetables are being grown there and he predicts that the time will come when Alaska will grow a sufficient supply of them. He also says that wheat, oats, barley and rye have been matured at the sta tions, and he thinks it practicable to raise beef for the home market. He says there is considerable inquiry for land along the coast from people liv ing in Northern Europe, and thinks the time wil’ come when many of them will find more comfortable homes there than they now have. According to Dr. Rljnhart, the med ical attentions lavished on invalids in Thibet are of a very primitive char acter. For headache, large sticking plasters are applied to the patient's head and forehead; for rheumatism, a needle is often buried In the arm or shoulder; a tooth is extracted by ty ing a string to It and Jerking it out. sometimes bringing out a part of the jaw at the same time; a sufferer with stomach ache may be subjected to a good pounding, or to the application of a piece of wick soaked In burning butter grease, or. If medicine is to be taken internally. It will consist prob ably of a piece of paper on which a prayer is written, rolled in the form of a pellet; and, if this falls to produce the desired effect, another pellet is ad ministered composed of the bones of some pious priest. At a* demonstration held on Lam hourne Common a resolution was pass ed calling upon Colonel Lockwood and others to remove the obstruction* to the public right of way on about 10J acres of forest land. A procession numbering about 600 persons was afterwards formed and the fences on -Colonel Lockwood’s land were forc ibly removed. About thirty of the Es sex police, under Supt. Womack, were present, but showed great forbearance, and the object of the demonstration was accomplished. Proceedings will tie taken for damages and trespass. Lieutenant E. P. Bertholf, of the United States revenue cutter service, has purchased 460 doe and 6u buck reindeer in Siberia for the Department bf the Interior. Lieutenant Bertholf expresses some doubt as to the ex periment. The total cost of the ani mals landed in Alaska is about 930 each. To fill the hour—that is happiness; to flu the hour and leave no crevice fbr a repentance or an approval. We Hue amid surfacee, and the true art M Ufa Is to skate well on them. ELECTRIC RAILROAD FOR USE OF THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY I>envor. Oct. 18.—The first electric Hue of Colorado outside of the cities will be built iu the beet fields of the northern part of the state.

Ac cording to tile projectors tie* road will lie completed liy the Ist of Mpy, iu time to lie of material assistance in the initial operations of tiie licet sugar fields for the season. It is to lie adapted for lioth freight and passen ger business, and It is possible that the road may ai sonu- time be extend ed to this city, lint not in the imme diate future. In speaking of the project, Mr. Boettcher said yesterday: "We are building tiie rond to assist in our licet sugar enterprise and also to assist in CONGREGATIONAL COUNCIL IN SESSION AT PORTLAND Portland, Me.. Oct. 18.-The fact that 2tM> authorized delegates to the National Council of Congregatlonnllsts failed to present their credentials prompted tin* business committee to introduce a resolution at yesterday's session of the council providing*for a compiittee to correspond with the con ferences of the various states to devise a plan whereby a part or the whole of the expense of delegates may lie met by the conference. The resolution was adopted. The question of whether a minister should refuse to ottielnte at the mar riage of a person who lias been di vorced was brought up and briefly dis cussed. and despite an attempt to In definitely table it, -it was referred to a special committee with Instructions to rejiort before tiie adjournment of the council. The question of who shall receive nml attend to applications of ministe rial relief was settled liy creating a hpcrinl committee for that duty. The afternoon session was devoted chiefly to palters. "Women’s Work in Congregational Churches” was the theme considered liy the Rev. T. Cal vin McClelland, Pit. I>.. pastor of the United Congregational Church at New Port. Rhode Island. In substance he said that the latest records of na tional councils sltow tiie names of NEW BURLINGTON COMPANY FORMED Burliugto/t. lowa.

There Is hut one change iu the name nf the company. The old one is a "railroad” company, the new one a "railway” company. Will Remove Fences. Washington. I>. C., Oct. 18.—The commissioner of tiie general laud office lias ordered tiie summary removal of a vast fence that is being erected on a part of tiie public range iu southeast ern New Mexico. Just west /if the Pe cos river. The fence is being built liy a large stock company owning 00,000 head of cattle which it desires shall ex clusively graze on tills large tract of public land. Inasmuch as the law pro vides that no fences shall lie erected on the public domain, and as such fcncca o|icrate to exclude settlers and small stock owners who have an equal right with all others to these public pastures, the commissioner says he will not go on record as favoring the erection of such fences nor for grant ing a specified time before which the fourths shall Is* removed. He favors summary action and so recommends to : the secretary. It is known that if au j extension is granted tills company oth ers will ask Congress at its comlug ses sion for legislation permitting the maintenance of such fences, and there is strong reason to believe the sccre-: tary will grant such extension, ill-' though apparently for other reasons. I Follows Herr Most. Berlin, Oct. 17.—Herr Maurer, editor of the Neueste Lebon, au unarcliist sheet, was sentenced to-day to four inbuths’ imprisonment owing to tiie publication of an article approving of I the assassination of President McKin ley. To Suppress Anarchists. Washington, Oct. 18.—The board of governors of the Washington bureau of identification, comprising lending ‘ police chiefs and the head of the Pink erton detectives, to-day approved a measure to be urged on Congress for legislation looking to the suppression of anarchy. The lioard urges the ne cessity for congressional legislation de fining anarchy and authorising all po lice officers to arrest and prosecute all such offenders under that law. The bill provides for establishing a nation al bureau of identification at Washing ton, | the development of the fertile region through which the road passes. We have engineers now In the field and will continue,, steadily to work until the road Is 'completed, working all winter If necessary. The road will be of standard gauge, with seventy [Miuud rails ami adapted for heavy traffic.” President Frank Trumbull of the Colorado & Southern hud no objection to the beet sugar men entering the I northern Colorado field with an elec tric Hue. "The proposition was made to us by Mr. Boettcher and Ids asso ciates," said Mr. Trumbull, "hut we did not care to htlihl a line through the region which Is to In* traversed by the electric Hue. There is a friendly feel ing lietwcen the sugar licet company nml the otiicers of the Colorado Southern, and we see no reason for any change in the friendly relations.” The remarks of Mr. Trumbull effect ually put to rest a rumor that the en terprise was started with the intention of securing lower rates from the Colo rado & Southern. The territory Is en tirely new ami Is one.of tin* most pro ductive In the state. It is plentifully watered and adapted for beet culture in a remarkable it Is prol>- able that the overhead wire system will l>e used. The opening of the,sugar beet liar vest lias created a strong demand for labor in northern Colorado, and It was announced yesterday that 200 able bodied men could find employment in the region of Loveland. The supply of labor is fur below the demand, as farmers arc desirous of harvesting the licets before the cold weather sets in. nine women licensed liy some Congre gational order to preach in "set as semblies,” and the names of thirty seven women who have received full ordination to the gospel ministry, six teen of whom are settled as pastors and teachers; that nearly two-thirds of tlie missionaries of every protostant denomination are women, and that of the total iminlier ou Hie roll of the American board sixty-six per cent arc women. Wltldn our churches there ought to l»e a place for women who are willing to consecrate themselves to It. and have proved their fitness for church work; we ought to is* able to give to each woman tin* protection of position, the opportunity of a profession having tiie church’s 1 sanction, and at the same time affording means of securing constant livelihood. The committee np|M>intcil to consider the matter of marriage by clergymen of iMfi'KoiiM who had been previously divorced, made Its report, recommend ing that the provisional committee lie requested to swim? a place upon the program of the next triennial session of tiie council for a pnjier giving a careful review of tin* matter, together with recommendations as to the best method of remedy. Tills report was accepted by the council without de bate. LATTER DAY SAINTS ELECT JOSEPH F. SMITH Sait Lake. Utah. Oct. 18.—At tiie reg uiar weekly meeting of tin* council of apostles, held in the temple yesterday. Joseph F.

Turkey’s proceeding in arresting Staphauova, father of Mrs. Tsllka, Miss Stone's conipanloii, is not reas suring. Many Turkish governors iu Macedonia have a ecu Bed our mission aries of complicity in tin* Macedonian agitation, and one preacher at Djuinia was imprisoned.

Charles S. Cost, has filed in the Fulled States Su preme court a strong demurrer to the bill of complaint of the state of Kansas in tlid case of said state vs. the state of Colorado Involving the rights to the use of the water <»f the Arkansas river. The state of Colorado cites the fol lowing causey of demurrer to the bill of complaint as follows: That tin* Supremo Court has no jur isdiction of either of the parties to this suit, been use the points at issue do not constitute any controversy between the two states. Because the issues presented arise. If at all. l»etween the state of Kansas and certain private corporations and persons In Colorado who are not made parties to the suit, and which matters do not concern the state of Colorado as a corporate state. Because tin* suit is in reality In be half of certain individuals residing in Kalians, on the hanks of the Arkansas river, the state merely loaning its name to such Individuals. Because Kansas, in her right of sov ereignty. is seeking to maintain this suit for the redress of suppose* 1 wrongs of Its private citizens, while under the constitution tin* state possesses no such sovereignty as empowers it to bring original suits iu this court. Because no property rights of the state of Kansas are affected by the matters alleged in the l»ill of com plaint. Because the aids complained of are SCHLEY’S CONDUCT WAS ADMIRABLE Washington. Oct. 17.—Only 011 c now, witness was heard in detail by the Schley Court of Inquiry on Tuesday. | This was Lieutenant Commander James 11. Scars, who was Admiral Schley’s Hag lieutenant during the Spanish War. lie gave a detailed ac count of the entire Cuban campaign, including the brief siege of Cienfuo gos, tbe retrograde movement of the dying squadron in sea roll of coal, the I blockade of Santiago, the reconnais sance of the Santiago shore batteries, I and the Ixmibardnient sf the Cristobal Colon May .’list, and the battle off San tiago July 3rd, when Cervera’s fleet was destroyed, lie placed the distance of the blockading line at Cienfuegos at from one to four miles and at Santi ago at from three to six miles. He ex pressed the opinion that in the battle of July 3rd it lmd lieen the Viscaya’s intention to rani the Brooklyn. j Mr. Raynor sought to secure the In troduction of a brief report of the bat tle of July 3rd which Commodore Schley prepared for transmission to the secretary of the navy. It was stated that Commander Sears had ta keti til's dispatch ashore to he cabled to the secretary but that it hade never, reached that official. The dispatch was ruled out on the ground that, as it was not received, it was not an oflicial com munication. It was not rend in the court room, but the following is a copy I of it: I "To the Secretary of the Navy, Wash-! ington: '‘Spanish squadron came out of San tiago harbor this morning. July 3d, at 0:30, ami were all captured or de-l stroyed in a running light to the west-1 ward of about three and one-half hours.

I cannot ' imagine any conduct iu battle more admirable.” ( Rio Grande Directors. Denver, Oct. 17.—The annual elec tion of directors, of the Denver &• Bio Grande ronil was held Tuesday and re sulted in the selection of tin* following names: George Could. Jacob 11. Sclilff, E. 11. Hnrriniau. Winslow S. Fierce, Arthur Coppell, all of New York; C. G. Warner and Russell Harding. St. Louis; E. T. Jeffery and K. O. Wolcott! Denver. The board will meet on the first Thursday of next month in New York to name tlie officers for the year. It Is said that there will Ik* no change In the general officers of the Denver & Rio (iraude as now 011 the list. The substitution of two new men on the bonrd of directors is regarded as an evidence of the Missouri Fncillc influ ence In affairs of the Denver & Bio CJrnmle. J. Edward Simmons and Richard T. Wilson, l*otli hankers of York, retired from the hoard and C. G. Warner and Bussell Harding, of ficers of the Missouri Faclllc, were substituted. E. O. Wolcott, general counsel of the Denver & Kl<> Grande. Is retained ns a member of the board. don Inn committee said tlie brigands never expected 20.000 liras, and would be satisfied with 2.000. I fear the ran som cannot now lie lessened. Through the Veerherua Fosta, the evening newspaper of Sofia, the brig amis know tlie sum raised in America, SIIO,OOO. is 420 pounds of gold, or near ly four times Miss Stone's weight in gold. I do not propose carrying that amount with 1111*. as I should bo robbed on the way. and the brigands them selves wouiil have :t big job to get that amount away. Tlieir representatives must go to riillippoißilis or some other large town. Spencer Eddy, tlie American charge d’affaires at Constantinople, has urged our cause admirably. The policy of Miss Stone’s abduction is found in the Bulgarians’ all-consum ing idea of freeing Macedonia from Turkey. Though tin* eml be good, the degenerate members do not care about tlie means. Prominent jicrsons iu the Macedonian committee say this object is to show that Turkey is unwilling or incompetent to protect life in Mace donia. and should allow some other power to do so. not done by the state of Colorado, or under its niitlioiMty, hut by certain pri vate corporations and individuals not parties to the suit. The bill is multifarious in that there by Kansas seeks to determine its claims as a riparian owner against tin claims of Colorado as an nppropriator of water, the claims of Kansas as a ri parian owner against several claims of numerous undisclosed Colorado appro priators of water. The separate and severable claims of various disclosed and undisclosed riparian claimants in Kansas against the claims of Colorado as an nppropriator of water, and tin separate ami severable claims of var ious riparian claimants iu Kansas against tin* separate and severable claims of numerous undisclosed Colo rado appropriators and otherwise is ap parent from tin* bill. Because the acts and injuries com plained of consist of tin* exercise of rights and the appropriation of water upon the national domain iu conform ity with divers acts of Congress. Because tin* constitution of Colorado declaring public property in the waters of its natural streams and sanctioning the right of appropriation was enacted pursuant to national authority and rat- j Hied thereby at tin* time of admission of the state into the Fnioii.
