Minden special: One ol the most sen
sational civil suits ever tried in this
county is now in progress. It is entitled
Edward B. Eckhard vs. Lillian C. Erk
hard. Mr. Eckhard sues for a divorce
and the children, two little girls. A. H.
Burnett and M. A. Hartigan are the law
yers for Mr. Eckhard, while Tanner &
McKinney and St. Clair Mcrheeley
are lawyers for the defense. The suit is
lie more sensational because of the
prominence of the parties interested.
Mr. Eckhard lias been manager of A. J.
Neimeyer A Co.'s lumber yards here for
about five Years. He is known as a
pleasant, gcfflial and obliging business
man, and has worked his way up from
an under man to the head of the busi
ness at this place. Mrs. Eckhard has
been prominent in social circles all this
while. She is the daughter of J. B.
Williams, editor of the Holyoke, Col.,
paper, but was at one time editor of the
Democrat here. The chief ground for
divorce h for adultery.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams are present at
the trial aud the mother seems very
much effected, Mrs. Eckhard is dressed
in black, is calm and seemingly not
much affected by the testimony. The
trial so far is being conducted iu as de
cent a manner as sn:h a trial can be,
and much credit is due Judge liaslin for
the manner in which he presides on the
occasion. While there has )ecn a very
deep interest in this ciise throughout
Minden, very little lias been said about it.
Later. E. IS. Eckhard was granted a
divorce and tbe children were given to
Mr. and Mrs. J. 11. Williums of Holyoke,
Col., parents of Mrs. Eckhard. Mr.
Eckhard is very much disappointed, aud
will probably carry the cuso up.

the striii'gles following the inauguration
of Washingtiin, tlie various amendments
to the constitution, the creation and r
f. etioii of the various departments of
the government, the inception of the
supreme court which defined and con
firmed the enlarged ower of congress
and the rights of states, the wiwi and
conftervstiTo counsels of the first presi
dent snd the great debt posterity owes
to his administration. After briefly
sketching the wonderful proath nd de

Concluded n 'oil 's:
The sun ol our destiny is sini r mg,
and its rays illuminate va-.t ternton. as
yet nnoccilpied and nndevel.iped. and
which are to be the happy liomi s of mil
lions of people. The qmtioiis which
affect tlie powers of government and the
expansion or limitation of the authority
of the federal coiistitiit'ou are so com
pletely settled, and so unanimously ap
proved, that our o!iticnl diviiion pro
duce only the healthy anhigouimn of
parties which is neces-ary f ir the
preservation of liberty. ')ur institu
tions furnish the full equipment
of shield and Sear for the battles
of freedom, and absolute protection
against every danger whieh threaten j
the welfare of the people will always be
found in the intelligence which appre
ciates their value, snd the courage and
morality with which their powers are ex
ercised. The spirit ot Washington fills
the executive office. Presidents may
not rise to the full measure of his great
ness, but they ninst not fall below his
standard of public duty and obligation.
His life snj character, conscientiously
studied and thoroughly understood by
coming generations, will be, for them, a
lilwiral education for private life and
public station, for citizenship snd itri
otism, for love and devotion to the union
and liberty. With their inspiring past
aud splendid present, the people of
these United Htatts, heirs of 100 yearn
marve!onily rich in all which adds Ui the
glory and greatness of a nation, with an
abiding trust in the stability and elastic
ity of their constitution, and an aliound
ing faith in themselves, hail the coining
century with ho and joy."
President Harrison was then intro
duced, and, being greeted with a grand
outburst of cheering, sioke as follows:
"These proceedings are of a vety ex
acting character and make it finite im
possible that I should deliver an address
on tins occasion. At an early date I

Harrison responded to the toast, "T., I "a,

"Mr. President an.l Fellow Citizens.

official representatives of the state of

attended me with the most courteous
kind nrs. omitting no attention tint
could make my stay among you pleasaut
snd gratifying, from you. and at th
hands of those who have thronged the
street of the city to-day, I have re
ceived the most cordial expressions of
goodwill. I would not, however. Late
you understand that these loud acclaims
have been in any sense appropriated u
a perionsl tribute to myself. I hare
realized that there waa that in this occs
sion. aud in all these interesting inci
dents wlneh ha made it so profoundly
impressive to my mind, which wasaUive
and greater than any living man. i k
plause.t I have realized that that trib
ute of cordial interest which yon hit
manifested, was rendered to that grt
oflice which, by the favor of a greater
jieople, I now exercise, than tome. (Ae
plsuse.) The occasion and all of its in
cidents will le memorable not only iu
tlie history of your own city, but in tb
history of onr country.
New York did not incceeed in re
taining the seat of national govern
ment here, but though she ma-lc lilril
provision for the assembling of the firt
congress in the hope that eongrns
might find its ermanent home here,
but though yon lost that w hich you cot
eted, I think the represenUtives hereof
ail the states will agree that it was for
tunate that the first inauguration ol
Washington took place in the state and
city of New York. For where in oer
country conld the centennial of tlie
event havs Wen so worthily celebrated
as here? What seaboard offered .
magnificent a bay on which to dii!v
our merchant and naval marine? Wlut
city offered thoroughfares so magnifi

a New York has ponred out to-day to
celebrate that event? I have received
at the hands of the committee w.io have
been charged with the details, onerons,
exacting and too often unthankful cf
this demonstration, evidence of their
confidence in my physical endurance,
(laughter) I mnst also acknowledge
still one other obligation. The cm
nr.t tee having in charge this event Live
also given me another evidence of their
confidence, which has been accomp
nied with some embarrassment. As I
have noticed the progress of this ban
quet it seemed to me that each of these
speakers had ban made acquainted
with his theme before he took his seat
at the banquet, and that I alone was left
to make acquaintance with my theme
when I sat down at the table. I pre
ferred to substitute for the official title
which is npon the programme that fa
miliar and fireside expression "Onr
Country." I congratulate yon to-day,
as one of the instructive and interesting
features of this occasion, that these
great thoroughfares, dedicated to trade,
have closed their doors and covered up
the insigniaa of commerce: thnt your
greet exchanges have closed and your
citizens given themselves up to the ob
servance of the celebration in which we
are rticiwting. I lelieve that patri
otism has lieen intensified in many
hearts by what we have witnessed to
day. I believe that patriotism has lieen
placed into a higher and holier fume in
many hearts. Tbe bunting with which
yon have covered your walls, these pat
