all right. It was not stolen from

The sparks from a passing loco
motive set fire to a hay stack at the
home of Mrs. Armstrong, south of
the IiS M. shops near Mrs. O'Neill's
residence, this forenoon, and the
high wind soon communicated the
flames to her barn and cribs near
by, resulting in a total loss of the
barn and all its contents. She had
several bushels of corn on hand
which was speedily consumed.
Even the family cow was in such
close quarters for a time that she
got her coat badly singed.
With such a high wind as has
prevailed all daj' it was a wonder
the fire was not carried farther. The
loss will be about $300 with no insurance.

House Notes and
The City Election.
Yesterday was held in this city as
quiet an election as could well be
imagined. There was no crowd
about the polling places and no
hustling of voters. One carriage
did duty for the whole town instead
of eight or ten as heretofore.
Every bod 3' seemed pleased with
the workings of the new S3"stcm.
Mike Murphy in the Third ward
was delighted with it, while J. C.
Peterson in the Fourth never saw a
better sj'stem of voting.
The vote on councilmen was as
W. D. Jones ,
D. M. Jones 138
D. K. Barr.
M. B. Murphy 107
Charley Ilemple 77
J. C. Peterson 11G
Con Connor 75
J. D. Simpson 41
J. L. Minor G9
T. M. Dove CO
E. E. Hilton 2
Minor's pluralit3-, 21; Dove's plur
OX SCHOOL BOARD.
The vote was as follows:
L. D. Bennett 1st ward 83,2nd
ward 113, 3rd ward 146, 4th ward 103,
5th ward 44.
S. Waugh 1st ward 117, 2nd ward
174, 3rd ward 144, 4th ward 93, 5th
A. J. Graves 1st ward 4G, 2nd ward
70, 3rd ward 103, 4th ward 77, 5th
M. Schirk 1st ward 70, 2nd ward
117, 3rd ward C9, 4th ward 87, 5th
Ten ballots were thrown out in
First ward because they did not
compl- with the law.
D. M. Jones sa-s the Australian
ballot is a beauty and works like a
The democrats lose two members
of the city council.
Twelve votes were cast for D. K.
Barr in the Second ward which were
thrown out on the slightest pretext
They should have been counted
Over 100 votes were sworn in yes
terday by those who failed to regis
ter. The barr fight in the Second was
a lively tussle.
D. M. Jones will be the only rep
resentative of the prohibitionists in
the cit' council.
The screed in the Journal last
night about the effect the ci.t3T print
ing was having on this paper fell to
pieces of its own weighL What ef
fect it is having on the Journal will
be noted later on. It will now eat
its crow and whoop it up for the
men it has maligned.
The New Council.
The new cit3r council will be one
of the strongest and most progress
ive ever elected in this cit-. The
personel will be as follows:
First ward A. Salisbury, rep.; W.
D. Jones, dem.
Second ward W. L. Browne, rep.;
I). M. Jones, (Inn.
Third ward E. (I. Larson, dem.;
M. 15. Miirp!i3 rep.
Fourth ward A. Gutsche, dem.;
J. C. Petersen, rep.
Fifth ward -J. M. Dove, rep.; Ji L.
It will thus be seen that political
l3r the council is a tie, with a repub
lican iiia3ror to cast the deciding
vote. Tne result can therefore be
considered a republican victorj'.
The new membership is made up
of excellent material that will work
for the advancement of the cit3's
W. D. Jones, from the First ward,
is an old citizen and a yroperty
owner that takes pride in his town.
He will make a good member.
D. M. Jones, in the Second, is an
improvement man all the time; he
has long- advocated the extending
of the sewer and the paving of
Washington avenue. He is on
record as being the first man to
urge these improvements before
the council when he was elected
M. B. Murphy, in the Third, has
always been a zealous supporter of
action in the council; his election
gives universal satisfaction.
J. C. Petersen is a new man,
politically speaking, but if he
manages public affairs with the
success that he does his own busi
ness, he will be a valuable member.
Minor and Dove, in the Fifth, are
energetic citizens and we believe
will help to give the cit3r a clean,
honest, progressive administration.
A Fatal Accident.
This morning about eight o'clock
Mr. Lindon, of the Rilc3", Frank
Gustafson, in Peterson & Larson's
emplo3r, and John Flehert3", a step
son of Policeman Fitzpatrick, ob
tained a skiff and started across the
river to hunt ducks on the Iowa
The wind was
gale up stream
billows almost five feet
Seldom has the river been
seen so rough. As the party got
out into the current near the B. &
M. bridge the boat became unman
ageable, but fortunatel" C. II. Peter
sen, the proprietor of the ferr3", saw
them and told his son to get their
skiff read3', as he did not think the
skiff, he could see on the waves
to the north-east would ride
in that rough sea ver3r long and he
was right, for no sooner had his
boat been made read3r than the skiff
was seen to upset throwing the thre
passengers out into fort3" feet of
water. Mr. Peterson hastened to
assistance and 3-elled at the bo3"s
to sta3' b3r the boat but 3-oung
Fleherty thouhgt he could swim a
shore, and long before Mr. Peter
sen could reach him he sunk for
the last time.
Mr. Lindon it ma3' be said to his
credit, did all in his power to save
the unfortunate bo3, but being
handicapped with about thirty
pounds of amunition on his person
he could not save him. In fact, had
Peterson been a moment later he
too, would have met a water3' grave,
but b3 hard work he was hauled into
All this time young Gustafson
was resting securelj on the bottom
of the upturned boat which reared
and plunged in the angry waves as
a thing of life. He was soon res
cued from his perilous position and
the entire part3r then started for Mr.
Petersen's home near b3', where res
toratives were applied to Mr. Lin
don until he had recovered suffi
ciently to be brought to town.
Johnn3r Fleherty, the unfortunate
victim of the surging waters of the
hungry Missouri, was a bright,
active bo3"-, about 16 -ears of age.
He had been employed in the B. &.
M. shops and made his home with
his step-father, Johnn3' Fitzpatrick.
An effort is being made to recover
the bod3', but 110 one scarce expects
success, unless it be down the river
after the body has risen to the sur
face. Mr. Petersen, the proprietor
of the best feriy on the river, de
serves praise without limit for his
fearless services in saving the lives
of Lindon and Gustofson, fo-neither
of them could have withstood the
cold, dashing waters much longer.
Mr. Lindon lost his shotgun and
Gustofson gave his away as soon as
he got onto dr3 land.

Mr. Anderson Root delivered at
Union twent3'-seven fat hogs Tues
day morning averaging about two
hundred and fifty pounds a piece.
The past month (March) has been
the worst month we have seen in

Edmunds & Root have been se

The Missionar3" Societ3" of the
United Presb-tcrian church met at
Mrs. J. W. Edmunds' and proceeded
to business. The3' made a quilt and
are prepared to do plain sewing for
aii3'one in need of their services.
How it makes our hearts gladden
and rejoice to seethe sun once more
shine upon us. The greatest blessing-
to mankind, a jo- to evcrj one,
it shineth on rich and poor alike, it
shineth in our homes and brings
peace and good will to man.
A cool breeze fanned our "city on
the hill" last Friday- and we began
to think winter had come in all her
glor3 and we might as well prepare
for a blizzard, but the sun shone
again in the afternoon and we were
not so badly' discouraged.
Once more we begin to think that
"old winter" has left us and spring
will make her appearance in a short
time. We notice the green grass
creeping from her mossy' bed and
the trees are budding. Soon we
will be making garden and "April
showers will bring May flowers."
The Ladies' Aid Society of the
Christian church met at Mr. James
Roofs on Wednesday, March 25, and
spent the day in sewing. Anyone
wanting sewing done hy these
ladies will do well to call on them;
they' have a handsome quilt about
done that will be for sale; and those
contemplating matrimony should
give them a call.
The Sabbath School of the United
Brethren church at Otterbein chapel
held Easter services there last Sun
day evening; it was postponed from
Easter until then on account of bad
weather. The evening was spent in
singing, recitations, etc. The house
was decorated very beautifully and
the services rendered were a credit
to the school.
The exposition at the Buck school
hoiie came off last Wednesday
night, but owing to the inclemency
of the weather it did not prove as
muclx ot a success as it wouiu nau
the weather been more favorable.
The exercises consisting of recita
tions, stump speeches, dialogues
and music, was well rendered by
the pupils who had labored hard
for the past three weeks with untir
ing energy, with the help of their
teacher, Mr. Jame3 Reynolds, of
Union, who has so ably presided
over them during the past winter.
Mr. Reynolds has proved himself a
successful teacher and both pupils
and patrons are well pleased with
the work done.
