The long-talked-of consolidation of
the American and United States Ex
press Companies took place to-day,
tad this evening M. C. Heath turned
over to M. A. Pinney, the agent of
the consolidation all the effects and
belongings of the U. S. company.—
Each company still retains the use of
the lines they formerly operated, and
this new movement seems, on the
face, to be an attempt to curtail ex
penses without in any manner afiect
fbg the Individuality of either com
pany, except where they each have
ta oftee in the same city.
Heath has been the agent for the
%. S. company in this city for several
fears, or long enough to become
Droughty identified with its social
business interests. He has fol
lowed the express business for many
fears, and during his long residence
Ik Ottomwa, by strict attention and
Methodical business habits has built
a large business for the company,
*ind by his genial manners has made
ioets of friends who will hear of this
-*tkrrangement with regret. Wherever
Ije may go, or whatever he may en
fags in, we hope he may have the
IDoat abundant success.
Mr. Pinney is master of the express
'trade, and will, no doubt, manage
Hie affairs of the consolidated com
tpanies to the satisfaction of his em
ployers and the public generally.

was a case of suicide or murder. Iter
death was produced by some kind of
narcotic poison but whether it was
administered by her own hand or by
some one else, cannot be determined,
She wes encienle, and a young roan

TheBoard of Supervisors met Mon
day, and we understand that it is
their purpose to make a levy to build
a new bridge, unless some satisfactory
arrangement can be made with the
owners of the toll-bridge, whose char
ter expires in 1880.
The law authorizes the Board to
construct a new bridge incase it does
not cost more than $25,000, and it is
estimated by competent experts that
an iron bridge with stone piers can
be constructed now, inside of that
amount.
At any rate something should be
done to relieve one half of the peo
ple of this county who pay taxes to
build bridges all over the county, but
at the same time have to pay toll to
get to their county seat.
Messrs. Michael, Postlewaite and
Wright are the Board, and the people
may rely upon them moving judici
ously in the matter.

in every respect the Fair was a great
success. Such an exhibition is of
great advantage to a county. It
brings the farmers together with the
best fruits of their fields, and thus
gives the visitor a favorable opinion
of the value and productiveness of
the soil of the county, and conse
quently puts their land in demand and
adds to its value. It enables the peo

THE HAPPY FAMILY
Th* Ottumwa Democrat Demands
the withdrawal of John P. Irish.
"Mr Irish has not been a valuable
or consistent member of the demo
cratic party in Iowa. He distin
guished himself some years ago by
his unnatural and ill-tempered zeal
for the endorsement by the demo
cracy of the bogus amendmentsto the
constitution. He was a New Depar
ture man from first to last, and herein
we find the only instance where he
preserved a consistent course from
the beginning to the end of apolitical
controversy. Mr. Irish was also very
forward in constituting himself the
preacher of the funeral of democracy,
going so far as to declare in a public
speech at Des Moines as to say that
the "Democratic party was dead and
a stench in the nostrils of every de
cent man, and that it should speedily
be buried out of the sight of man."
Such conduct on the part of a pub
lie man toward his party will uot be
of any great service in rendering him
popular either with his partisans or
with the people generally. Mr. Irish
will not be able to poll the entire
democratic vote, nor will he gain any
strength among the Independents or
dissatisfied republicans. It would
therefore bo an act of justice to the
democracy of Iowa which we hope he
will appreciate, to promptly with
draw his name from the field and al
low the party to act unfettered in this
contest.
The Democrat always loyal to the
Democratic cause, will never bolt a
nomination, but it does insist that the
interest of the Democratic people are
to be held superior to the ambition of
any one man, hence it asks Mr. Irish,
to forego any clains which he may
set up on account of this Marshall
town endorsement, and thus prove by
a show of self-sacrifice that he is
really a Democrat now.—Ottumwa
Democrat Aug. 30,1877.

Saturday afternoon last the "Kirk
ville Nine" and the "Cheese Factory
Nine" met at the cheese factory to play
a game of base ball. The boys were
all neighbors, and up to the com
mencement of the game, had always
been friends. After the commence
ment of the game, a young man by
the name of Brown, and a man named
Ilerbig, got into a quarrel about
something about a decision of the
umpire, and finally got into a fight.
Elmer Moore interferred, and our in
formant, Isaac N. Strong, says struck
Ilcrbig with his fist. At this stage of
the proceedings some one struck
Mooro with a ball bat, on the side of
the head, knocking him senseless, in
which condition he remained for sev
eral minutes. The fight then became
general, and Strong says as many as
six or eight were fighting at a time,
and several were down on tlie ground
at once bleeding like stuck pigs.—
Moore was very seriously injured
and it was reported in the city yester
day evening that he was dead.
Dr. Williams, the attendant physi
cian, says that the wound was terri
ble, but that the skull had not been
fractured, iu his opiuion, and that the
young mail would probably get well.
A yountr man )y tlie name ot Parks
it is said struck Moore with the
club but since the row he has been
missing. Such is the story told us by
Strong who claims to have been an
eye witnoes. Base ball is not as pop
ular out there as it used to bo.
Assassination.
W. L. Miller was shot and instant
ly killed, on the 29th of August, about
six o'clock, two miles north of West
Chester, Iowa. Iio was walking along
with his wife, when some one in a
fence-corner, concealed by an old
hedge, fired on liim, the -shot taking
effect in his head. Seven ball entered
the head, completely shattering it to
pieces. George W. James, Justice of
the Peace at West Chester, held an
inquest on the body. The verdict of
the jury was that W- L. Miller came
to his death ly being shot in the head
supposed to be tired from a shot-gun
loaded with bullets or buck-shot, by
party or parties unknown." Mr.
Miller had a quarrel with Lenox Day
ton in the afternoon, and knocked the
old man down several times, and sus
picion rests on him and his two sons.
As yet no arrests have been made.

The case of Hon. S. S. Burdette, of
Missouri, is a somewhat extraordina
ry one.
He was Capt. of one of onr Iowa
regiments, going, wo think, from De
witt, Clinton county, into the service.
After tho closo of the war he settled
in southeast Missouri and was pres
ently sent to Congress, where he
served with very respectable credit.
When Willis Drummond, ot Iown,
resigned the office of Commissioner
of the General Land office, Capt. Bur
dette, whose time had expired in
Congress, was appointed in his place
and he held that place for some time
with generally admitted efficiency.
About two years ago he mysteri
ously disappeared from Washington,
leaving his family and friends in
great distress, as to his whereabouts.
llis accounts wero found to bo per
fectly straight, and eventually Gen
J. A. Williamson, of Dos Moines was
appointed in his place.
His return to his home in a dement
ed condition, has already been noted
in the Coukikk dispatches.
lie was regarded as the ablest man
in his delegation from Missouri, while
he was in Congress, and his habits
and integrity have not been assailed
to our knowledge.
He had the hardest worked and
poorest paid office in Washington
and it is probable that his mind broke
down from over work.

propriate $05,000 to build water
works, when he knew the Council
could not appropriate money except
by an ordinance, and that the city
didn't have one-twentieth of that
amount to appropriate. Sensible
workingmen will not be deluded by
any such false and impracticable res
olutions. The fact is that the demo
crats have no real sympathy with
workingmen, and have shown twice
by their votes that they will do noth
ing at all to afford them employment
Let workingmen remember this when
democrats come wheedling around
them to get their votes.
There don't seem to be any good
reason why the Government should
not issue a long-time bond at a low
rate of interest, say three per cent,
interest, payable in conpons in gold
semi-annually. They ought to be as
low in denomination as tweuty-five
dollars, and the National Banks and
principal postoffices of the country
could be made depositories of them,
so that the poor man, as well as the
rich banker, could at any time invest
his money in a government security
which would be absolutely safe, and
which could be used as a circulating
medium for all large transactions and
which could bo readily convertible
into coin or currency at any moment.
The failure of the Chicago State
Savings den, where three millions of
the peoples money havo been sunk in
worthless securities and stolen by its
irresponsible officers, would seem to
suggest to cur Congressional law
makers the necessity of adopting some
system like the French people have,
whereby all classes of the people, rich
and poor, could readily become the
creditors of the government direct as
fast as they might accumulate a little
money, instead of becoming the cred
itors of speculating, and often swin
dling private institutions, like the
State Savings Robbers' Roost.
By this plan, a market would bo
created at home for our bonds, the
same as it is for the Consols in France,
and thus the semi-annual interest on
the public debt, which now goes
largely to Europe, would be distrib
uted at home.
It is a plausible theory, and one
worthy of the consideration of our
law makers.

W. QASTON VK££U8 O W STEW-
Prom (he Ollunwa Democrat.
Ottumwa, Iowa, Aug. 25,1877.
To the Editor of the Democrat:—
In your last issue I discovered an ar
ticle wherein you say "That certain
sneaks have made charges against Dr.
Stewart, Democratic candidate for
sheriff that he was connected with
whisky frauds on the government.
Why don't the sneaks make their
charges public and not go round whis
pering lies in the ears of unsuspect
ing honest voters. Dr. Stewart defies
them to come out in public and make
their charges."
Now as no part of the above applies
either directly or indirectly to myself
personally, for the reason that I have
never made any such charge as that
against Dr. Stewart in any manner or
form, nor have I whispered or
breathed what I believed to be a lie
to honest or [unsuspecting voters, I
do not write this for the purpose ol"
vindicating mysell'against. these char
ges.
But, inasmuch as you further 9ay
"tliat he" (meaning Dr. Stewart,
suppose) invites "investigation of all
his acts," by which I understand that
Dr. Stewart has authorized you to ex
tend an invitation to ant/ one who
may know or thinks lie may aught
derogatory to tho character of Dr.
Stewart, or any good reasons why
the honest unsuspecting voters of Wa
pello county should not support him
for the office to which he aspires,
therefore avail myself of the invita'
tion, and will present a few matters
for investigation in order to give the
Doctor an opportunity of presenting
himself to the honest anil unsuspect
ing voters of Wapello county in the
most unspotted robe ho may have iti
the wardrobe of his moral character.
The first little matter which I, as
one of the voters of Wapello county
would like the Doctor to explain, is,
how can a man who has heretofore
been openly and wilfully violating
the laws of the State of Iowa, by sell
ing intoxicating liquors in violation
of law, be a gnod moral citizen, or a
suitable person to till an office, the
duties of which especially requires
him to hunt out, and bring to justice
parties engaged in the same traffic he
had been engaged in Irimself.
Tho second matter I would like to
have investigated is whether it was
strictly honest to write the letters
written by him to merchants in St.
Louis and other places as quasi rec
ommendations of O. W. Lynam & Co.,
(composed of O. W. Lynam and Ade
line Lynam,) while tliev were in the
liquor business in Ottumwa in March
and April, 187 !, and by which they
were induced to sell Lynam & Co.,
goods on credit, and for which they
never got one dollar, written, when
D. W. Stewart could have ascertained
aud ought to havo known that both
Lynam and his wife were insolvent.
Third, I want to know, whether
the fact that I). W. Stewart and ().
W. Lynam having an understanding
that Stewart was to get a part of the
liquors, purchased of He vis, Mason &
Co., of St. Louis, by (). W. Lynam &
Co., did not have a considerable influ
ence upon the mind of Dr. Stewart, to
induce him to write the letter of rec
ommendation of (). W. Lynam & Co.,
which he wroie to them, and whether
the cautious wording of said letter,
was not a premeditated design on his
jart to said O. W. Lvnam to swindle
lis creditors.
Fourth, I would like to kuow
whether that little pretended trade of
old whisky tor new between himself
and (). AV. Lynam, by which he got
nearly one thousand dollars worth of
the whisky that (. W. Lyman & Co.
irindled their.creditors out of, was in
bis opinion a strictly legitimate and
honest transaction on his part, and
whether (after a study of three or four
years) he has been able to find out
when, where, or how, he paid for the
whisky he got out of the institution
of O. W. Lynam & Co., and after ex
plaining these little transactions to
the satisfaction of the voters, (if he
should happen to get through before
the election,) perhaps it would le as
well for him to step around to.Foshun
I'rugh's and see if he can explain, to
the satisfaction of Mr. Prugh when,
where, and how, he paid that little
bill, he once owed there. There are
a few of the unsuspecting voters of
Wapello county, would very much
like to have these little matters fully
explained, before voting for the Doc
tor for the office of Sheriff, because
there are some things connected with
these little transactions, which look
very much like spots of something
nas'ft/ on the moral character of the
honorable gentleman.
Yours truly, A. W. Gaston.
In view of the fact that Dr. D. W.
Stewart has in onr opinion been un
jnstly assailed and traduced since he
became a candidate for Sheriff, we
the undersigned who were engaged
as attorneys in tho bankruptcy case of
O. W. Lynam & Co and in cases con
nected therewith, wherein it was at
tempted to make Dr. Stewart liable,
we take pleasure in making the fol
lowing statement in his vindication
-Wc have had an intimate acquaint
ance with said cases and the facts con
nected therewith, and we unhesitat
ingly *ay that iu our opinion there is
nothing therein injuriously affecting
his character as an honc»t, upright,
straightforward business man and
gentleman."

It is easy to soo that Sam Kvans of
the Ottumwa Democrat was determ
ined to support a democrat for Gov
ernor. That is the reason he advo
cates the nomination of D. P. Stubbs,
and opposes the election ot Mr. John
P. IHsh. This is democracy Bour
bonized with a vengeance—to support
an old man who never was a demo
crat and never had a friendly word
for tho party, and to oppose a young
man, who in every contest in theso
modern political times of which Uour
bonism knows nothing, has borne the
heat and burden of the day who has
insisted that the party should take
high and advanced position on all the
questions of the day, and in the face
ot clamor has contended that it should
adhere to principle and not subserve
only tho dictates of policy who was
bold enough and sensible enough to
advocate the nomination of Mr. Til
den, the one hope of the party, while
Sam Evaiis and his followers were
advocating the surrender of all prin
ciple to a faction. It is merely
question of age and association and
consistent democracy that these
men condemn when they are com
pelled accept a modern candidate
like Iridi, or to advocate one who
nover-h:id sympathy with them like
Stubbs.—Des Moines Leader, Demo
cratic State organ
Look to Tour Titles.
We would warn all farmers to look
to their land titles. There are many
things which can throw a cloud over
a man's claim to his land, and while
life and health are enjoyed, save your
selves from annoying litigation in old
age. Thero are many cases where
land is only held by the certificate of
location. From defects in assign
ment of Ityid warrant or double en
tries, the government in many cases
has withhold the patent. Tho own
ers, thinking they are laying safe in
some laud office, do not trouble them
selves. Send to the land office and
rour patents and have them re
corded. Errors in description fre
inently occur in making out deeds.
See if your deeds agree with the land
you arc occupying and suppose your
own. Those engaged in furnishing
abstracts of title inform us that there
aro defects in the deeds and titles to
nearly one-third of all the land in
the country. By carefully watching
your deeds and preserving the corners
of your land, mauy of the most har
rassing lawsuits can be avoided.—
Though courts require a strict com
pliance in all fhe provisions of law
in tax titles, yet when it comes to the
plain question of the legality of the
tax deed, the courts sustain the pow
er of the State to authori/.e the sale
of land for delinquent taxes. So ev
ery man should annually not only
pay bis taxes, but exercise vigilance
to see that by some mistake a part or
all of his land is not sold for taxes.
If mortgages arc paid off see that
satisfaction bo legally entered on the
records.
There is a penalty for a neglect to
enter satisfaction, yet frequently the
mortgagee lives out of the State, the
money is sent to him and the mort
gage remains on record, tho only evi
dence of its being paid is a very de
ficient receipt which is subject to be
lost, destroyed or forgotten. A third
of Iowa is probably mortgaged to
Eastern capitalists, and It is impor
tant that they should be required to
enter legal satisfaction when the mon
ey is paid.—Farmer Clarkson.
A special dispatch to the Chicago

Strange Agreement Which
Was Kept.
From the New York DUpati-Ii.
Mr. Konav de Maly Sambor, in the
province of Tchernikoff, in Russia,
committed suicide, recently, under
singular circumstances. As the gen
tleman was very rich, and had excel
lent reasons for remaining in this
world, his voluntary exit was puz
zliug. but was explained in a letter
found in his desk, alongside of a pis
tol case. Ten years before he had
engaged to light a duel, but instead
of going into the field, it was decided
that one of the two contestants sho'd
kill himself iu ten years, unless his
adversary should give him permis
sion to live. Lots were drawn in or
der to decide who should be the vic
tim, aud Mr. lt^iiay was the unlucky
man. The time for the suicide was
May 11, 1877, aud, according
ly, ou the 10th he received a
a letter from his cold-blooded antag
onist, demanding the fulfillment of
his word.
