THE CHURCH DOINGS OF TO-DAY A tinw Firm In Much Trouble False Economy KfTcctH tlio Teachers Ijlttlo Sinners niul Tholr I'tin- Isliment I'ei-hoiials. How About the J. O. Tipton "I'm disappointed. I ex pected the city would be In a regular blaze , and when 1 saw them lighted I felt so bud I could hardly sleep that night nt all. 1 kept thinking of 'Twinkle , twinkle , little star.1 I believe the lights nre too high. If they were down they would be all right. It worked better last night , though. " Henry Spetinun "All right. " C. 11. Walte "They don't seem nuito so bright as last summer , but perhaps that's a notion. I guess they're all right. " Judge Jnines "A great Improvement. I believe , though , they can bo made to dp still better. There's a shade , put on , as I under stand , to protect from snow , and that easts u shadow.- think this shadow can be done nwuy with. " Alderman Wells-"Thlnk It Is doing well. We cannot expect perfection In a day. It will be better , probably , than now. " City Attorney Holmes "I guess they are pretty good. The tlmo to test them is In stormy weather , when wo-nccd them. There Is ono thing certain , they dou't coine up to the expectations. " Judge Aylcsworth "It's first rate. I sleep all night now , without a light In my room. It even casts a light down cellar so that I can get my coal without a lantern. Great thing. " Patrol Driver Nicholson "They right up the city la great shape. There is no trouble In "getting thcio" now'with the wagon. " Carl Morgan "I don't think they amount to much. They don't come up to my expec tations , but mav do better after a while. " Dell Morgan ( brother of the ubove ) It's a big thing. Can see to tc.id a paper on Wash ington avenue. It's such an improvement on the darkness we have been having that I am perfectly satisfied. " "Captain Hrown "They are nil right , but are nothing like what I expected. " Charley Uemo "Darned If I know whr.t to think. It seems to me they are too high. I think if they were whittled off three or four lengths they would give better light. " William Lewis "It's a big thing. Beat thegasl Well I should holler. " City Clerk Burke "I don't ' think they are as brilliant us I expected , but it's a great Improvement over the gas light Put Lacy "I can't tell much about It yet. It has been my idea all along that lower lights would bo better. Can't tell much about it until the other lights are out , and I don't stay up that late. " Auditor Klnnehan "They are too high. It muy bo a good advertisement for the city. " Weighmastcr Amy "Tho are too high , too far upart , or not powerful enough. Some thing wrong. " James O'Noil They nre all right. They are well distributed over the city , and llncly .located. " Charley Moore "Pretty good so far. I think they ate a great improvement on gas. " Squire Schurz "It's all right. It's way ahead of anything we have had yet. " Jacob Sims "They are all right , I guess. Hardly enough of them. " Joe Bacharuch "They ought to take off two lengths. All loking aside , they are a great success. When they get to running in good shape they will bo O. K. " M. J. Alworth "I think they are a good thing and much better than gas. Electric lighting is the thing , but I dou't know as this is the most practical way. " H. S. Hlchardson "I think they nre mighty fine. Can see to read a newspaper in niy window. " Frank Guanella "I don't think they are near as good as they might bo. " G. W. Ferguson "I don't know as they have had a fair test , but thus far the object has not been attained. The tops of the buildings are lighted , but the streets are dark. I regard them as unsatisfactory. " Policeman Unthank "Much better than gas. After the other lights are out the .city is well lighted with them. They are doing llrst rate. " . William Arnd "I guess they are all right. Can tell better after the gas goes out. " J. C. Mitchell "I think its a success. It used to bo so dark In our part of town you couldn't tell whether you was on the bridge or in the creek. Wo can see now to read a newspaper. " Ira Hendrlcks "I think they are all right but not enough of them. " W. H. Thomas "I think electric lighting Is the thing , but it don't ' seem to mo that these lights are doing as well as the ones on the court house last summer. " Jerry Mullen "A big improvement , you bet. " W. II. M. Pusey "A grand success. A dark night will show their power , and that i when we need light the most. " , Dr. Waterman "A line thing ; give a splendid light. " . Frank Yenawine "Very favorably 1m- pressed with their work so far. " James Anderson "More advantage to resi dence portion thun the business part of the city. It Impedes our work , for a burglar or crook can see us before wo can see them. " George Kudlo "Very nice. " Jerry Shea "Tho towers are too high. They are going to take oft a couple of lengths. " Harkness Bros "We like it very much. " Troxell Bros "Wo get very little benefit hero. " W. A. Maurer "Quality good , not enough quantity. " S. S. Keller "All right , I guess. " J. C. DeHaven "People may bo disap pointed , but the city is light enough so that travel Is safe and that is all anyone can ask for. Moro masts are needed. " Swanson Bros "We are pleased with them. They are an unqualified success. " A. J. Mandcl "A big Improvement over the lights wo have had. " W. D. Kirkland "Like all tower lights , good in winter. They should bo placed lower and have more of them. " J. B. Atkins "Grand. Some people wan daylight , but they will come to their senses after awhile. " Simon Eiscman "Offlcer has done re markably well to get up so good a thlilg for the public und at so low a price. Ho is a pub lic benefactor. " A. Ueiter "Fine thing. Just what wo want. " Dr. Cleaver "Splendid success. " Mayor Groneweg "Tho light is not as good as the sample shown on the court house last summer. Will probably work better when the adjustments are all made. A fair test could not be made except when the other lights wore out. It will probably bo satisfac tory. " C. A. Beebo "It is all all right. Beats the old light. " W. S. Stout "With the present number perhaps the present height Is about right , but the towers should bo lower , and we should have more of them. " L. C. Bracket "Too busy to notice It. " F. H. Orcutt "Fine. As good as moon light. " H. Friedman "It is fine. " W. A. Mynstcr "It is satisfactory. Would be better if a half dozen ( Ingle cable lights could be placed on Broad way und Main where most needed. Swan & Harmon "First rate. Better than wo expected. " E. W. Kuppoll "Need four more , then it would do first rate. " D. W. Uusbnell "Thinkit will bo satisfac tory. Like it very much. " Johnson * Van Patten "Good thing for the city. " J. Mueller "Good as far as they go , but there uro not enough of them. " W. W. Chnpman-"Vcry nice. " 'Squlro Hlggs "Fine. Will do better on a dark night. " Max Mohn "Will do first rate. " S. B. Wadsworth "Shows our part of the city off In good shape. " ft. A. Wood-"Vory good. " Ira Odell "The court houne tower don't give near the light it did last summer. Seems to noed.inoro prunsure. " Nick O'Brien "Lights up the city in good shape. " S. S undors "Thoy nro first rate BO far as they no , but there art ) not enough of them. " L. ft.

Holiday goods at Mrs. E. Burhorn's. Queer , Ijow Business. There has been seine stir caused among , he circle of barristers by the filing of a petl- iou for the disbarment of A. W. Askwith , of A.voca. Mr. Askwith is well-known through- iut the county. Ho was a student in Wright c Baldwin's office in this city , and soon after being admitted to the bar went to Walnut , , n.d afterwards formed a partnership with Fremont Benjamin , at Avoca. Ho and Ben- amin did not have the most harmonious'sort of a dissolution. Thcro has been some bad blood shown on both sides , according to ports , and there nro naturally suspicions that Benjamin is in same way connected with this attempt to have Askwith disbarred. The petition is , however , free from any such inti mation , It being drawn by Baird & Mcyerly , of Harlan. It recounts a number of cases , ' which if proved , show Askwith to bo unworthy - worthy a place at the bar. The gist of most of thcso specifications is that ho betrayed the secrets and interests of his clients ? . It is claimed that in ono case in which lie was at torney for a man who was seeking to inako a railway company pay for some stock killed , Askwith acted really as the attorney for the company , and received pay from both sides in the suit. Other similar acts nro charged. A still moro serious charge grows out of his being attorney for the Walnut saloon cases. It is claimed that he represented ( to thcso cli ents that it was necessary to have money to "sugar up" the prosecuting attorneys , so as to secure desired continuances and delays , thereby securing for them the privilege of keeping their saloons open for a tlmo longer. The money was paid over and in , stead of being used for thu purposes stated- it went into the depths of Askwith's pockets , while at the same time ho was receiving his regular fees as an attorney. No ono who knows the attorneys whoso names are brought into unpleasant connection with the affair , would believe that they would bo guilty of receiving any such money , even if offered by by Askwith. Askwith , himself , denies that there is any truth in these charros against him andis preparing to fight the case. His former partner , Fremont' Benjamin , is also in court. Ho was retained as attorney for Arch Coffman when the latter was ar rested for killing Jack Main. Benjamin claims that Coffman did not live up to their agreement , and that ho must pay him $2.200 for his fees in the case. The suit against Coffman is now on trial at Avoca. Coffman claims that Benjamin betrayed his confidence. Ho paid Benjamin all that he was entitled to receive , and when ho would pay no moro Benjamin began a warfare upon him. Coff man .claims that Benjamin , after dropping out of the case , went "over to the enemy ; " in other words , that ho went to the prosecu ting attorneys and Informed them of all the facts on which Coffman'g ' dcfcnco rested , thus betraying tils confidence. It U lso claimed that Benjamin went to other attor neys and sought to employ them to prosecute Coffman. If those matters are proved up It is predicted that proceedings for disbarring Benjamin will follow. o Always Busy. Never idle , but always at work , is Tip- ton , the real estate broker.

IOWA. It seems that Iowa Is losing many of Its > est men on account of the falsely economi cal policy followed in regard to salaries of ; eachers. The legislature has been very much inclined to cut down appropriations for these institutions , without regard to the effect. Ono of the results has been that this state hus been producing and developing touchers , only to have them quickly taken away by other states by the Inducement of letter wages. Iowa docs not seem to appre ciate Its own as much as others appreciate licm. Prof. Booth , born in this state , educated hero , and ono of the best teachers in the whole country , has been taken away by the Philadelphia institution , this state not being willing to pay as good a salary by several Hundred dollars. Prof. Kennedy , who also taught here , has aeon taken away by the institution at Jack sonville , III. Ho was also born in Iowa and educated in this state. Prof. Blattncr is another Instance of the result of a too niggardly policy. Ho was also a native lowan , and was never outside of the state until he was called to Texas and given charge of the institution there , Texas recog nizing his ability and the value of his experi ence. A few hundred dollars a year moro than Iowa would pay him was all that took tiim away. Miss Christie , ono of the most valued of the lady teachers nt the institution hero. Is now filling a resiwnsiblo position in the Wisconsin institution. There are many others who have been likewise taken away from Iowa. With these facts right before their eyes it might be well for the legislators' in making their ap propriations to consider whether they are not practicing a false economy in allowing Iowa's own intellectual products to be taken away by a few dollars of silver.
