will enable those engaged in these places

It is amusing to notice in the sentenc
ing of the prisoners to various terms in
the penitentiary that the judge , in com
pliance with the law , enters up judgment
against them for the costs of the case.
Nearly every one of the prisoners has to
be furnished an attorney at the expense
of the btato , being unable to pay one
themselves , and yet the judgment is en
tered up against thorn just as if they were
millionaires , A prisoner , without a dollar
lar in his pocket , and with a three years'
term bolorc him , naturally cares little
about going to the penitentiary , but wor
ries greatly over the judgment ot costs.

tt llh tlic Old ,
The injunction cases brought against
he saloon men and others of the city
were yesterday dismissed to tlic surprise
if many , but there was little time given
or any jiibllancy , as new suits were im
mediately commenced under the Claik
aw. It seems that the prohibitionists ,
tvlio have been backing these old suits ,
lave become discouraged at tlic dim'citl-
ies attending those particular cases , and
lave concluded to let them go by the
board. They take a new hold , and what
hey deem a ktror.gcr one , by the new
nils. The attorney Is as before , Mr.
acob Sims All the suits , which number
hirty-onc , arc brought in tlio name of
he .state of Iowa on relation of A. Over-
on. They are brought both against the
lieu who have the bars and the owners
f the buildings. For some reason some
f the saloons are left out , and some of

On the petitions being filed Judge Loof-
iiourow li\ed upon Monday , .January 17 ,
as the time for a hearing. Ho will not
u-obably bo hero at that time , and the
ascs will doubtless come up before cither

The doings in the district court yestor-
lay consisted mainly in clcnriuc up tlie
able preparatory to adjournment.
The jury in the cuso of Wilson re-
.urncd a verdict finding him guilty , lie
s the young colored fellow who was
might nipping Mr. Beer's overcoat from
the hallway of Mr. L. 0. Baldwin's resi
dence a month ago. He was sentenced
: o nine months in the county jail and a
line of $100.
Edwards , the crook who tried to confi
dence the elderly Ohio gentleman , was
.irought before the bar to receive his
sentence. Colonel Daily , as his attorney ,
nterposed technical objections to his
aemg sentenced at this time , claiming
: hat sullicicnt tlmp had not elapsed be
tween the conviction and the sentence.
Judge Loofbourow quickly acquiesced in
the request for more time , and set the
date for f-entencing at January 10. That
is the ditto to which Adjournment of this
term was docidcd upon. When that day
comes Judge Loofbourow will probably
bo on his way to California , as he now
lakes a vacation. The queer change
will therefore bo made by which the
judge before whom Edwards was tried
will not bo here to sentence him , the at
torney who prosecuted him , Mr. Thor-
neil , will tlit'ii be Juclno Thornell , and
Kdward's attorney , Colonel Daily , who
so ably defended 'him , will then be the
district and proseeuling atloincy. Ed
wards is evidently a hard crook , and the
burglarious tools , as well as the two re
volvers found upon him indicate him to
be a desperado , and Iho jjubliu will be iv-
licvcd to know that ho is placed behind
the bars. _

Yc terday was fraught with special in
terest to all those in Council IJlufts who
in any way handle intoxicating liquors ,
It will be remembered that some time
ago there was a great scheme started to
make the druggists and others holding
county permits , forced to pay laigo
amounts for alleged failure to comply
with iho law requiriiig-montlily reports
The penalty for not making a report ex
actly as required by law is 1100 for each
olVense , and one-half of this goes to the
informant. The amount claimed under
these suits was in the neighborhood o :
110,000. l-'iom tills it appears that the
pri/o was one wortli fighting over , am
the suits were prepared with great care
Tlio defendants tiled a motion to dismiss ,
and thin was argued at length some time
ago before Judge Loofbourow who took
the same under advisement. Yesterday
ho announced his dcolMon which was to
the elVccl that the cases should bn dis
missed. This knocks the bottom out o :
the scheme , and the druggists and others
interested breathe easier. The dismissal
of the cases was founded on reasons al
ready given to the public in the publish
ing of the motion at the time of its tiling.
The attorneys who have been lixmg up
the suits will doubtless be somewhat dis
appointed , but the sentiment outside 01
those directly interested is rather agaiusi
the suits , as being more in tlio nature o :
taxing these defendants for the benefit ol
private persons that an attempt to en
force law for the public good.

Some InuldcntH in His
Career A Good Jiulyo of
Many interesting incidents are told of
resham's career , says the Cincinnati
inquirer's Indianapolis correspondent.
Jn the bench he is an excellent judge of
iunian nature , and seldom mistakes his
iiian. In the trial of criminal cases lie
invariably has private talk with the
ofi'endor. He questions a culprit closely ,
mil quickly detects any extenuating cir
cumstances in his case. Upon ono oc
casion a former citi/.en of high standing
was tried and convicted in Ins court for
icrpetrating frauds in the pension ollleo.
The r.ian's wife and family were present
anil the scone was a .sad one. The jury
returned a verdict of guilty , ( iresliam
called the prisoner to the bar , but , in
stead of passing sentence upon him , said
"Go home and spend the night with
your family , and report to me at 10
o'clock to-morrow. You may not see
your home again for a long time. "
This extraordinary action caused much
comment and some criticism , but the
juilty man did not break the court's
confidence. He was on hand promptly ,
and was sentenced to two years at hard
labor in the Michigan City prison. With
out exception newspaper men are staunch
ricnds of Gresham. His uniform cour-
osy and frank disposition win their
fneml&hip. His outspoken manner in
politics has naturally created some hos
tility toward him in party ranks , and his
success and gieatncss have in like man
ner provoked joalousncss. Gresham ,
however , cannot DC justly accused of
smallncss of character nor charged with
doing an unmanly net. His contempt for
things insincere and for petty politics is
pronounced. The avciasc citixen here
abouts. is quick to resent a personal lling
at Gresham. Even those whoie tirst
choice for president is Harrison denounce
the warfare that has been begun against
One day Judge Grcsham was listening
to a tedious argument in an important
suit which was attracting public atten
tion. A reporter of an Indianapolis paper
was awaiting the verdict. The hour wa > ,
late and the reporter had many other
calls to mike. Ho grew impatient , and
finally , during a halt in the piocccdings ,
ho slipped up and whispered to the court ;
"Say , judge , how are you going to de
cide this cabuV"
Tlic judge looked .surprised , but re
warded the young man's nerve by re
"Well , Charley , J am going to decide It
for the iicfomiiint , but you must not say
anything uulil ido it. "
On another occasion , just after Grcs-
ham's appointment as postmaster gen
eral , but before he had left the bench , ho
was hearing a railroad case in chamber * .
A reporter timidly opened the door and
stepped into a circle of distinguished at
torneys , such as Senator McDonald , the
late ox-Governor Baker and Abram W.
Hendricks. The judge erected the in
truder kindly , beckoned him to advance ,
and stopped the case long enough to explain -
plain its nature. The reporter was about
withdrawing , when the judge said :
"Don't be in a Iwrry. HavoyonaknifeV"
The cutlery was produced , the judge
opened a box of choice cigars , passed
them around , and then again proceedings
begun. Ho had a habit of doinir such
things , yet noyor surrendered the dignity
attached to ids court.
When Maj. Calkins was a candidate
for governor two years ago , the dcm-
ociatiu press published a private re
mark made concerning him by Gresham
It was simply this : "There is nothing
in him ! " Gresham did not deny it. and
ho was severely criticised by republicans.
Two months later , however , when Cal
kins failed In the joint debate with Gov.
Gray , when ho was defeated , and ever
since the republican party in this state
has benn reiterating Grcsham's senti
ment. It proved In Calkins' case , as in
those of government offenders , that he
seldom made a mistake in sking up his
man. As is well known , ho has the ut
most contempt for Dudley , Dorsoy , and
that gang and their method , and has
never failed to so announce himself.
Thus it is that those men took up Senator
Harrision , and may always bo found
with him against Grcbham , at least.
There la no dancer , however , that the
judge will be nominated for the presi-
doucv. His boom is premature , and
schemes are already on foot to lay aim
