or agent of the lands, nod will continue

Tlie few evictions that have l.?en made
during the put we -V. w. r i invle quietly,
without any resistance, and have attracted
no attention. N'.w that th owners of
the land have determined to en force pay
ment or evict the settlers, they are sur
prised in many instances to find how
well ofl omc of these squatters are. It
is not surprising when it is remembered
that they have lived,' in some instances-
for a number of years upon iand which
cost them nothing at the beginning, and
nothing since for rent; so that ull they
made from their farms was so much clear
guin. Mr. Hans Kundson. a Norwegian,
who had leen living upon land belong
ing to Mr Uichard Suell, near Fort
Dodge, was one of this kind. A writ
of eviction had been made out Against
1 in. and n the day lefore it was to
liaye been served he came into town and
told Mr. Suell that he wanted to settle.
He had lived for about a dozen years i n
a good, fertile quaiter section, which he
had improved and was fairly prosperous.
"When asked what terms he would give,
Mr. Snell faid he would let him have the
land for $15 an acre, but that he should
want part down to hold the bargain, and
the balance could run on long time. He
thought the Norwegian, if he did not
beg otf entirely, would want to pay about
$100 down and wait a long time before
paying the rest. But, to his astonishment,
Kundson said: "111 pay you $1,200
down and the rest iu thirty days." The
settler had really gotten ahead so well on
his borrowed land that he was about
ready to pay for it all out of the profits
while he had been living upon it.
Other settlers who had been living for
many years on land which had cost then
nothing, had made sufficient money to
buy farms on other land where the title
was not in dispute, and when forced to
pay up or leave the land which they had
occupied rent free, concluded to move
and buy good land adjoining, to which
they could get a clear title. Mr. Snell
was in this city today, and will be absent
from Fort Dodge for a few days. Dur
ing that time there will be no opportuni
ties for settlement, nor will there be any
evictions. He anticipates no further
trouble, and says that neatly all the set

A Rougn Voyage.
Paii.adki.puia, Pa., Nov. 29. The
French steamship Panama, Capt. Chabot,
arrived at this port yesterday from Car
rucha, Spain, with iron ore, after a peri
lous passage of twenty-five days. On
November 26 the vessel was within 100
miles of the Delaware capes, where she
met the cyclone. The s-ms were moun
tainous, and all efforts to keep the ves
sels head on were fruitless, as the wind
blew her around in the trough of the
ocean. At times she was completely en
veloped. At noon that day. when the
storm was at its height, the carpenter, L.
Francous, was swept overboard and
drowned. No effort could be made to
save the unfortunate man, as the chang
ing of the vessel's course in any way
might further endanger the lives of the
crew. At 8 o'clock the same night the
signals of a vessel in distress were seen
shooting up from a dark hulk which
ri nearly level with the water. Capt.
Chabot bore down on the craft as near
a possible, but was unable to get close
enough to rescue the men. He believes
the vessel to have been a full rigged
ship. She was deeply laden and doubt
lessly foundered with all on board.
Capt Chabot speaks little English, but
told as lest he could of the sonow he
felt in being compelled to leave the un
fortunate crew to the mercy of the sea.
When he left them they were waving
torches, but after a few minutes all lights
The Allentown Lost.
Coif ahskt, Mass., Nov. "jy. It is the
opinion of Capt. M. H. K.-amer, keeper
of the MinoU'light, that the Philadelphia
collier Allentown is at the bottom of the
ocean and lies about one mile northeast
of the light house, directly iu the track
of navigation, and that she fetiuck on
Jason's ledge. The sea had subsided
1 this morning, and C ipt. Ilea hut, whose
turn it was to take a two weeks' furlough,
came ashore and was relieved by his as
sistant. Mr. Ileamcr knew nothing of
the Allentown's loss until he reached his
home, but he gave the following in
formation, which settles any uncertainty
tnat may have existnd in regard to her
At about 8:30 o'clock Tuesday morn
ing an immense amount of wreckage
was seen passing the light house. It
seemed to come from the exact direction
of Jason's ledge, and all of it seemed to
come from no greater distance than the
location of that ledge. This wreckage
consisted of life preservers, boxes, casks,
topmast, which was painted black from
its peak about six feet towards its foot.
The wreckage continued to float along
during the greater part of the morning,
since which time none has been seen.
No bodies were seen, and there is noth
ing above water in the locality men
tioned Capt. Ilcamer says there is no
doubt that the vessel foundered on
Jason's ledge. This is a small ledge
standing up from the broad shoal bottom,
and at a low tide is covered with about
seven feet of water. It lies directly in
the path ot large vessels.
