served, which further augmented the

tirement of J. M. Roberts who, after
nine years of service, will enjoy a rest

TRIKE TIES UP
New York Piers Are Piled High and
Steamers Unable to Reach the
New York, May 4. Steamship piers
are piled high with freight which can
not be moved and fifty steamers lie at
anchor in the harbor, unable to reach
the wharves because cf the strike of
marine engineers which has tied up
450 tug boats composing about 75 per
cent of the craft engaged in such ser
vice in .New York harbor.
The only relief on this, the fourth
day of the tie-up, was afforded by the
action of some of the railroad com
panies in acceding to the demands of
the engineers. Among them was the
Lehigh Valley railroad whose tugs are
in operation, together with those of
the New York Central and the New
York, New Haven ami Hartford rail
road companies. Owners of about
thirty other tug boats have also yield
ed to the demands of the men. Other
companies declined to pay the in
crease in wages.

steamships Tuscania, Espagne, United
States and many steamers from Cen
tral American and coastwise ports, a
further increase of the congestion is
The situation was aggravated by a

men might be called to support that

BEING FOUGHT IN
Yesterday a case was on trial in the
county court that attracted the entire
countryside from the section cast rd
fouth of Union and a greater part of
the population w;as - present as wit
nesses in the case either for one side
or the other. The action was brought
by Orin Ervin against Cary Stottler
and was over the replevin of four
horses by Mr. Ervin from the posses
sion of th? defendant.
The testimony in the case was quite
conflicting as the plaintiff claimed to
have wcrkod for the defendant as a
corn shucker as well as doing other
odd jobs for which he had not been
paid and had later placed his horses,
consisting of one bay colt, one clay-
bank colt and one bay mare in a pas
turr? owned by Mr. Stottler, and when
he desired the possession of the ani
mals it was refused and he found it
necessary to take procedure of law in
order to secure them. The animals
are valued at $320 by the plaintiff and
for being deprived of their use for a
time he claims $50 damages. The de
fendant denied the charges as to work
performed by the plaintiff and
charged as to work performed by the
plaintiff and charged him with hav
ing damaged a buggy wheel for the
defendant while enedavoring to fix it,
and claiming that he should be com
pelled to pay this amount. After a
large number of witnesses were exam
ined the case was passed over until
Friday when it will be argued by the
attorneys to the judge to pass upon.
The recent primary election, when
the smoke of battle rolled away, was
r,nc that was quite costly to the tax
payers as well as the candidates who
were participants in the conflict, and
it shows that the ballot of the citizens
expressed at the polls has cost them a
neat sum and the total figures will
i-each $1,700 by the time the claims
are all passed upon and allowed.
Among the larger items cf expense
of the election is that of the judges
and. clerks which reaches $892.80, and
the supplies, totalling $300. For the
rent of rooms for the holding of the
election in the different precincts it
cost $211.20 and for the ballots $250
This certainlv rolls into money fast
but assures the citiens of the oppor
tunity of selecting the men they de
sire for the nomination for the differ
ent offices in the state and county.

DIDN'T GET OUT OF
TOWN SOON ENOUGH
AND IS FINED
On Tuesday a resident of Iowa giv
ing the name of G. D. Curtiss made
his advent in the city and in' the
course of a few hours accumulated a
large and assorted load cf distilled
spirits of corn juice, which made his
navigating a matter of great difficulty
and fially resulted in his getting in
the clutchss of the police and being
lodged as a guest over night at the
city jail. The man promised most
faithfully to return to Iowa and tear
fully pleaded for release, which, was
finally granted and he was requested
to seek the land beyond the Missouri
as soon as possible. All would have
been lovely had the Iowan returned
home as he had promised, but he con
tinued to linger and proceeded to pol
ish up his skate with new additions
and last evening was found by Officer
Alvin Jones in a very bad state of in
toxication and again placed in jail.
This morning ho was a very sorrow
ful picture as he stood in police court
and received his sentence of $5 and
costs, amounting to ?8, which he was
unable to settle and was turned over
to Chief Barclay and will labor for
four days for the city to settle the
