. We take this ojiportunity to ivits'itite
what Mr. Hull jmblished in his lettc r of
denial last week and also add that Mr.
Darker is eijually ini.oeenl of having'
writ ten any of the article. appearin;!' in
the J')HtN'AL, that were harmed to them
by the Herald and Republican some
time no. It is true with the Joriix.VL
uh it usually is with other newspapers,
that the articles referred to were written
by the editor, notwithstanding the as
sertions to the contrary of the truthfulf;
sheets referred to. ' We feel gfatcfu'i iTr
the compliment so unwantonly ('or un
knowingly) paid us by our friends of the
Herald and Republican, und wisli that
we niij.-ht lie able to return the compli
ment by truthfully spying that the art i
cles apjiearing in the two papers named
were written by someono other than Sat
terlee and Hunter, hut, we cannot.
The annexation controversy has been
inaugurated in many parts of Canada
and the scheme seems to be favorably re
garded by the people over the Ixirder.
At Windsor the other dav, an ele fion
was held to select a mayor for the, city
and the plat form ujion which the c am
paign was conducted consisted chiciK' of
a desire to test the feeling of the people
on this issue. The annexation candidate
was defeated by a plurality of only "S
votes in a total of 1,!00. As this elec
tion would not have resulted immediate
ly in annexation anyhow, this defeat
cannot be regarded as a serious blow to
the cause. On the other hand the fact
that he came so near an election reveals
the prevalence of a feeding at Windsor
favorable to Canadian union with the
United States which will not be a little
surprising to those Canadians who have
lieen scouting the idea as ridiculous.
The fact that this election was held so
close to our liorder may account for tlie
strong vote in favor of the project, but,
making full allowance for deductions,
the result is calculated to carry this con
victiein that 1 he epiestion is to be taken
seriously. O'Neil Tribuife.
General Harrison bears the strain to
which his position subjects hint with re
markable self-possession. Since the elec
tion he has been most severely tried, and
only once has he seemeel to show any
impatience, and that, was to Congress
man Gallingcr, of New Hampshire, who
was speaking of the Cabinet tippi
meiits. "l clou t tumic, saul the lieiur
al, "I ought to lie e rowded into appoint
ing men because other men think they
have a claim on me on account of their
services to the party." There is signifi
cance in this remark which politicians
will do well to heed. About the same
time two Republicans from New York
called on the President-elect and urged
the claims of a certain gentleman for a
Cabinet position. He was, they rcpre
resented, t he leader of the largest Re
publican faction in his State. General
Harrison interrupted with the remark
that he did not propose to rei'Oguize fac
tions in the Republican Party, but to
heal factional elisputes. One of his visit
ors is reported to have remarked after
the interview; "Wo arc not big enough
liiein lo go to Gen. Harrison and try to
arrange Cabinets." , Vie'e-pn'sidi'iif-eUi't
ilmM-oti, who jiaid him a visit ivs-ufHtwi
says he had not lwi with his associate
fifteen minutes before lie discovered tliat
' General Harrison would President."
The General knows, when to lie silent,
aad hen to speak and Ikiw to pjxstk.
This much has been discovered aliout
i.h.i. As to his Cabinet and what he
v, ill do when President, he keeps his own
counsel. And this 'faculty of reti
cence." as ITarjiers Wedny remarks, "is
"! go. 1 augury." X Y. Independent

The Niagara Falls suspension bridge
situated nearest the falls was carried
av.ay by the recent gale anil, deposited
i.i Ihe river. The bridge was completely
tebiiilt last season and enlarged for a
double track. The material of w hich it
v:'s c ompose d was iron and steed. It
was owuM by the Niagara Falls and
Tlie stock is held in Oswego and Canada,
and lias always paid large dividends.
'ffi'v.';)'.s is about fCiOO.000. The bridge
will probably lie rebuilt as soon as possi
ble. All points of interest along the riv
er at the water's edge sufl'ereel more or
less from the gale. Tlie water was nev
er known to lie so4 high. The Interna
tional hotel was unroofed. Several
buildings were blown down in the vicini
ty. The gale was the severest ever
known there, and lasted about twelve
hours. The loss by 1 he gale in that vi
cinity will reach. Ifl, 000,000.
The total nuurW of persons killed in
the recent cyclone at Reading, Pa., is
I twenty-lour, and those badly in jured
10;!. Search in the ruins of the silk mill
has lieen abaneloned. Several of those
reported killed have lieen found. Fif
teen dead bodies were removed from the
ruins left by the cyclone at Pittsburgh,
and of the thirty-live injured three died.
Rev. Dr. Reed, of Allegheny City, was
among the vic tims. Three smeller com
panies at Peueblo, Col., have each given
a fifty-ounce silver brick to In; sold by
the Stock exchanges of the cities of New
York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh for
the lieneflt. of the cyclone sufferers.
The storm did ten thousand dollars
damage to buildings at Wheeling, W.

Pa., was demolished; loss, f 12,000. The
storm was very severe in northern Ohio.
A small foundry was wrecked in Raven

Dear Sir: The Sioux County Republi
can, Vol. 1 No. 32, has come to my no
tice, in which I see an article reflecting,
or rather endeavoring to reflect, upon
the character of Mr. S. Barker of the
Bunk of Harrison. Now this Republi
can jiajier ( for profit, as it was printed
in connection with a Democratic one,
which makes it certainly look tliat way)
enft'-avors to hurt a man tliat has the
judgment there spoken of against him,
as the result of an endeavor to 'help a
friend out of trouble, as he does not owe
one dollar of the money tliat the Geo. B.
Carpenter Co. holds the judgment for,
and by the time this is publishe-d the
same will have been paid. I know from
whcni'e this thing emanated and those
same men may some day hear from
tiieir ac tions. They failed to state tliat
there was an agreement with Geo. B.
ai-penter Co's attorney that the judg
ment should remain in the County
Court of Sheridan county, and that' I
would pay it off this fall; in fact there
had been a payment mada on it before
the transcript was taken. This is sim
ply. on par with the balance of the work
11ns same gang is doing in Sioux county
and I think the people of that county
who are Jed by such men are made tip of
the wrong kind of material. It will not
lie a great, while Wore they will have toj
move nearer tlie oonler ol civilization as
they are Scarcely the kind of men that
the enlightened citizens of the United
State's will emlure a gre.".t while;. The
pe;ople will learn that Mr. Barker is
worth more to that country, as far as
the true interests of the inhabitants are
conce rned, than teen such men as that ar-
tie-le emanated from, for it always takes
a selfish motive to induce sin h men to
work, uhereasyolt will always find Mr.
Pirke.r working for the good of the
many. These men show what they are
working on and how they expect to gain
their ends as they sent! Messrs Arm
strong and "Wood a copy of their papers
whenever they think they have hit Mr.
Barker in any way that would be likely
to impair their coididence in him. I
hope you will print, this letter as I have
known Mr. Barker for several years and
know thai, what I say ! him, to be true.

Ilodarc Coin in u idea t ion.
. In the Herald of Jan 28th appears -an
article that is liable to cause some peo
ple in Sioux county to believe that the
night herd law had been fully set aside,
repealed anil forever aniniled by the de
cision of the County Judge, and attor
ney Westover is given the credit of hav
ing won a great victory in convincing
the Sioux County Court that the sus
pension of the herd -law applies to the
night clause relating to the care of stock
Imtween the hours of sunset and sunrise.
I was in Harrison the day the case of
Trimbur against Maine came up for
hearing Wore Judge Hunter, and wish
ing to hear what the decision of the
Court would lie upon this very point of
the night, law. I went to the Judge's
ollice to listen and there found out what
the Judge thought upon that point.
There was some misunderstanding be
tween the court and Mr, Westover. The
Court proceeded to decide tliat the re
pealing of the herd law also did away
with the night clause when Mr. Westo
ver informed the Court that that was
not, the question for the Court to decide
in this case as this was only a question
of technicality in the service of the re
plevin papers and that the otheT ques
tion was to lie decided in another case to
come up in the Court a week hence.
The Judge then changed his decision,
(after being informed what the question
in disc) into really was) decided in favor of
I was not in town at the time Mr.
Westover is said to have succeeded
in convincing the Court, hut do know
that Judge Hunter gave his decision on
that point a week before it came up for
hearing a nil discussion. There is still a
question in my mind as to whethe'r the
decision of the County Court will lie fi
nal. Special Oiler.
