1. wo declare our abiding faith and conll
dcnco In the principles of the republicar
party as expressed from time to time In he
state platforms , and we congratulate the pco
pie of the state upon the Kood talth with wlilcl
those principles have been crystall/.ed inlc
law , giving the republican party the right tc
point with just and honest pride to tin
grand achievements of the state under thlrt ;
years of republican supremacy.
3. Wo believe It to be the first duty o
every good citizen to advise obedience t <
law. as lone as the same remains upon ou
statute books , and until th same shall be re
ixjftled by the expressed will of the people
and we denounce any attempt to obstruc

talned and Its provisions enforced by thi
proper officers ,
4. That as agriculture Is the basts of pros

constant apneals to the passions of am

the democratic party on civil service reforn
In the contest of 1884 , wo condemn the bai

10. We are opposed to all laws that do no

The Two In formers Want Damage * o
the Saloon Men.
A. P. McLaren and H. W. Darvill
have hud their names before the publi
quite frequently during tno past fov
months in connection with the salooi
cases. They wore employed by the pro
lubitionists at $3 a day , each , and ex
peuscs , to gather evidence against th
saloons , by drinking at the various place
sought to DO closed up. After gettini
evidence in this way , the two men wer <
inveigled into some sort of a scrape ii
Omaha , by which it was claimed tha
they took money from the saloon men a
a bribe not to appear as witnesses ii
those cases. They wore immediately ar
rested on the charge of accepting bribes
and the saloon men succeeded under om
charge and another in keeping thorn n
Oinuha , so that they could jiot appea
hero. They are now out , ami on thissUl
of the river , and they have now commenced
moncod suits against Dun Carngg , Pole
Hanoi , Charles Dlngman and C. J. Era
cry , each of the two intormers claimiii )
as damages flO.OOO. They base till
cluim on the ground that the defendant ;
maliciously conspired to deprive thorn o
their liberty ; that they caused a warran
to bo issued charging thorn with bribery
that they were kept in jail six days urn
As is generally known , Captain A
Overton has been at the front in th
prosecution of the saloons. Nearly al
the injunction cases show him to be th
plaintiff , and ho has bean most zealous ii
the prosecution of the cases. In Justic
liriggs' court informations have booi
tiled by some of thu saloon men chargin ;
him with perjury in having sworn tha
liquors wcro being sold in certain place
contrary to law. Constable Wesley yesterday
torday went to Overton's residence ti
serve the warrants , but found that gentleman
tloman conlincd to his bed by malaria
fever. Ho returned the formidable doc
ument with the fact stated as a reason fo
not making the arrest. The cases form ;
now feature in thu prohibition light.
Informations litivo been filed in thi
same court charging McLaren and Dar
ville also with perjury. They have no
been arrested. McLaren In at his horn
in Sioux City , and Darvillo has gone t <
his , near LcMars. The warrants wil
probably ho served the- moment they ar
rive in this city to testify in any of the
cases now pending.

Warned Warn of hiving.
The police gathered in quite a crowd
of dejected and and dirty looking fcl
lows , and they wcro brought before Judge
Aylesworth yesterday morning rvs va
grants. Most of them were picked ur
around the railway yards during the
night. Eich had the old story to toll ol
being a hard working man , temporarily
hunting for a job , and each in turn wa ?
perplexed by the cross-questionings of the
judge as to what had become of the
money earned in times past.
One , named Farrell , wa a miner from
Butte City. His homo was in La Salle ,
111. Ho gave his age as twenty-one , and
when asked how long ho had been a
minor , replied , "Twenty-oneyears. " He
evidently got his majority and his occu
pation mixed. Then ho corrected him
self by saying that he had been mining
for eight years. Ho had succeeded well ,
but had like other foolish fellows occa
sionally coppered the wrong card. He
had only $4 with which to travel on to
his old home. "If 1 had koot half whal
1 earned I would bo spinning through
home in a Pullman instead of working
the freights. " The judge looked at the
Inside of his hands and concluded he
could travel on.
John O'Connor , from Burlington , made
out a strong story of how he had worked
faithfully ever since ho came to this
country , and had earned good wages.
He made the ease too strong , and when
asked to account for what he hud done
witli his money , had to throw In nn aunt ,
who had helped him when he ( irst landed
and to whom ho was under obligations ,
three orphan brothers in the old country ,
one widowed mother , several spells ol
sickness , and two or three sprees. He
was given ten days on the streets.
While it counted against these sort oi
follows that they had no monev , one of
the crowd , a boy , was looked on with
suspicion because he had too much
money. It seemed hard to adjust the
financial situation just so as to avoid
being held in the grip of the law. This
boy , aged eighteen , gave his name as
Ambrose Racer. He had about $50 and
was found in a hard crowd of tramps.
The boy said his homo was in Greene-
ville , O. , and ho was a florist by trade ,
worked 1n hot-houses and
having - gar
dens since a little boy. Ho had been out
west , at Denver , Hclcnannd other places ,
working in hotels when he could not got
work at his trade. Ho had traveled 1'iOO
miles in four and a half days , and it had
cost him only $2.15 for food and fare.
He had stood the trainmen oil' , and when
tired from a train got on again. As no
light could bo had on his possession of
the money ho was allowed to go.
Robert Wilson , a large , tine-looking ,
middle-aged man , who with bettor cloth
ing would have passed for a bondholder ,
said he was a cobbler. Ho had lost his
wife and had three small children Hying
at Vllliscii , with their grandparents. Ho
was roving about seeking for work. Ho
had walked in from Malvern , and his
foot being travel sere , he laid down to
sleep in a lumber yard , hoping in the
morning to bo able to get some work.
His story was taken at par , ana ho
walked out into the air again.
Hardly had the judge finished investi
gating a dozen similar cases , when n tel
ephone message came to send some otli-
cer down after a man who was in the
alloy in the roar of Louie & Met/per's
restaurant breakfasting out of a swill
oarrcl , into which refuse from the res
taurant is put. The follow has boon scon

The now Ojrdon iron works is giving
evidence that Council BI nil's is a favora
ble field in which to plant manufacturing
enterprises. Ever since Mr. F Ogdcn
purchased of C. F. Ilemlri the Council
Bluffs iron works and named it the Ogden <
don iron works orders have boon coming
in faster than they can bo attended to ,
and the work turned out is of the most
The now works are located on the sontl
side of Tenth avenue between Tenth and
Eleventh streets , and started up in tno
middle of last April. As the proprietors
of the old foundry , through n chain ol
circumstances , allowed it to run down ,
it of necessity required some skill to
bring back the former reputation of the
Council Blufls iron works. Under the
new name and management the works
have boon successful. They do all kinds
of iron and general machine work , as
well as make a specialty of engines ,
They have made eight machines un
der patents of the Council Jiluffs
canning company for USD in their busi
ness , which is located directly opposite
to the foundry. These machines in use
now arc successful and labor-saving.
The foundry has just completed a 0,000
pound casting of the band IIy wheel oi
the new 150-horso power engine for the
city waterworks company. This is the
largest casting over made in this vicin
ity , Yesterday the cylinder for the en
gine was cast.
In conversation with Mr. Ogden yes
terday ho stated that ho was very well
satisliecl with the prospects of the foun
dry ; that they had boon greatly over
taxed so far and were kept going to their
full capacity. "As it is now , " ho said ,
"wo only employ from twenty to
twenty-live men. Wo are cramped for
help in our moulding shop. That is the
greatest inconvenience wo have to con
tend with , the securing of skilled labor.
We have had some good moulders , but
they were of the lloallng class
and after a wcok or two of work they
never return after eeceiving their nay ,
They prefer to visit some other locality.
Our specialty isongincS. Wo build the
best automatic engines made. We got
all the results of economy and greater
durability in our engines than those
which are more complicated. We have
a great many improvements in regard to
the details in them that none others
Besides the machinists , moulders , oto. ,
a full corps of pattern makers are em-
ploved in the Ogden iron works.
This neighborhood IB becoming quite a
manufacturing center , the now sash and
blind factory of Messrs. Strock Bros. , the
new boiler shops of Messrs. Carter & Son
and the Council Bluffs Canning com
pany , with the iron works , are all located
withm & stone's throw of each other. In
these industries there are employed not
less than 600 people.
The now boiler shops of Messrs. Car
ter & SOB. which have removed here from
Wausau , Wli. , and located on Tenth ave
nue , have already begun operations.
The greater part of their tool * did uol
arrive until last Saturday , but alreadj
they are creathlg considerable noise
while at work hammering upon the
boilers. They have a number of con
tracts and havn the promise of several
others. The senior member of the firm
