How About the
J. O. Tipton "I'm disappointed. I ex
pected the city would be In a regular blaze ,
and when 1 saw them lighted I felt so bud I
could hardly sleep that night nt all. 1 kept
thinking of 'Twinkle , twinkle , little star.1 I
believe the lights nre too high. If they were
down they would be all right. It worked
better last night , though. "
Henry Spetinun "All right. "
C. 11. Walte "They don't seem nuito so
bright as last summer , but perhaps that's a
notion. I guess they're all right. "
Judge Jnines "A great Improvement. I
believe , though , they can bo made to dp still
better. There's a shade , put on , as I under
stand , to protect from snow , and that easts u
shadow.- think this shadow can be done
nwuy with. "
Alderman Wells-"Thlnk It Is doing well.
We cannot expect perfection In a day. It
will be better , probably , than now. "
City Attorney Holmes "I guess they are
pretty good. The tlmo to test them is In
stormy weather , when wo-nccd them. There
Is ono thing certain , they dou't coine up to
the expectations. "
Judge Aylcsworth "It's first rate. I sleep
all night now , without a light In my room.
It even casts a light down cellar so that I can
get my coal without a lantern. Great thing. "
Patrol Driver Nicholson "They right up
the city la great shape. There is no trouble
In "getting thcio" now'with the wagon. "
Carl Morgan "I don't think they amount
to much. They don't come up to my expec
tations , but mav do better after a while. "
Dell Morgan ( brother of the ubove ) It's a
big thing. Can see to tc.id a paper on Wash
ington avenue. It's such an improvement on
the darkness we have been having that I am
perfectly satisfied. "
"Captain Hrown "They are nil right , but
are nothing like what I expected. "
Charley Uemo "Darned If I know whr.t to
think. It seems to me they are too high. I
think if they were whittled off three or four
lengths they would give better light. "
William Lewis "It's a big thing. Beat
thegasl Well I should holler. "
City Clerk Burke "I don't ' think they are
as brilliant us I expected , but it's a great
Improvement over the gas light
Put Lacy "I can't tell much about It yet.
It has been my idea all along that lower
lights would bo better. Can't tell much
about it until the other lights are out , and
I don't stay up that late. "
Auditor Klnnehan "They are too high.
It muy bo a good advertisement for the
Weighmastcr Amy "Tho are too high ,
too far upart , or not powerful enough. Some
thing wrong. "
James O'Noil They nre all right. They
are well distributed over the city , and llncly
Charley Moore "Pretty good so far. I
think they ate a great improvement on gas. "
Squire Schurz "It's all right. It's way
ahead of anything we have had yet. "
Jacob Sims "They are all right , I guess.
Hardly enough of them. "
Joe Bacharuch "They ought to take off
two lengths. All loking aside , they are a
great success. When they get to running in
good shape they will bo O. K. "
M. J. Alworth "I think they are a good
thing and much better than gas. Electric
lighting is the thing , but I dou't know as this
is the most practical way. "
H. S. Hlchardson "I think they nre
mighty fine. Can see to read a newspaper in
niy window. "
Frank Guanella "I don't think they are
near as good as they might bo. "
G. W. Ferguson "I don't know as they
have had a fair test , but thus far the object
has not been attained. The tops of the
buildings are lighted , but the streets are
dark. I regard them as unsatisfactory. "
Policeman Unthank "Much better than
gas. After the other lights are out the .city
is well lighted with them. They are doing
llrst rate. " .
William Arnd "I guess they are all right.
Can tell better after the gas goes out. "
J. C. Mitchell "I think its a success. It
used to bo so dark In our part of town you
couldn't tell whether you was on the bridge
or in the creek. Wo can see now to read a
Ira Hendrlcks "I think they are all right
but not enough of them. "
W. H. Thomas "I think electric lighting
Is the thing , but it don't ' seem to mo that
these lights are doing as well as the ones on
the court house last summer. "
Jerry Mullen "A big improvement , you
W. II. M. Pusey "A grand success. A
dark night will show their power , and that i
when we need light the most. " ,
Dr. Waterman "A line thing ; give a
splendid light. "
. Frank Yenawine "Very favorably 1m-
pressed with their work so far. "
James Anderson "More advantage to resi

Troxell Bros "Wo get very little benefit
W. A. Maurer "Quality good , not enough
S. S. Keller "All right , I guess. "
J. C. DeHaven "People may bo disap
pointed , but the city is light enough so that
travel Is safe and that is all anyone can ask
for. Moro masts are needed. "
Swanson Bros "We are pleased with
them. They are an unqualified success. "
A. J. Mandcl "A big Improvement over
the lights wo have had. "
W. D. Kirkland "Like all tower lights ,
good in winter. They should bo placed lower
and have more of them. "
J. B. Atkins "Grand. Some people wan

after awhile. "
Simon Eiscman "Offlcer has done re
markably well to get up so good a thlilg for
the public und at so low a price. Ho is a pub
lic benefactor. "
A. Ueiter "Fine thing. Just what wo
Dr. Cleaver "Splendid success. "
Mayor Groneweg "Tho light is not as good
as the sample shown on the court house last
summer. Will probably work better when
the adjustments are all made. A fair test
could not be made except when the other
lights wore out. It will probably bo satisfac
C. A. Beebo "It is all all right. Beats the
old light. "
W. S. Stout "With the present number
perhaps the present height Is about right , but
the towers should bo lower , and we should
have more of them. "
L. C. Bracket "Too busy to notice It. "
F. H. Orcutt "Fine. As good as moon
H. Friedman "It is fine. "

There has been seine stir caused among
, he circle of barristers by the filing of a petl-
iou for the disbarment of A. W. Askwith , of
A.voca. Mr. Askwith is well-known through-
iut the county. Ho was a student in Wright
c Baldwin's office in this city , and soon after
being admitted to the bar went to Walnut ,
, n.d afterwards formed a partnership with
Fremont Benjamin , at Avoca. Ho and Ben-
amin did not have the most harmonious'sort
of a dissolution. Thcro has been some bad
blood shown on both sides , according to
ports , and there nro naturally suspicions that
Benjamin is in same way connected with this
attempt to have Askwith disbarred. The
petition is , however , free from any such inti
mation , It being drawn by Baird & Mcyerly ,
of Harlan. It recounts a number of cases ,
which if proved , show Askwith to bo unworthy -
worthy a place at the bar. The gist of most
of thcso specifications is that ho betrayed the
secrets and interests of his clients ? . It is
claimed that in ono case in which lie was at
torney for a man who was seeking to inako a
railway company pay for some stock killed ,
Askwith acted really as the attorney for the
company , and received pay from both sides
in the suit. Other similar acts nro charged.
A still moro serious charge grows out of his
being attorney for the Walnut saloon cases.
It is claimed that he represented ( to thcso cli
ents that it was necessary to have money to
"sugar up" the prosecuting attorneys , so as
to secure desired continuances and delays ,
thereby securing for them the privilege of
keeping their saloons open for a tlmo
longer. The money was paid over and in ,
stead of being used for thu purposes stated-
it went into the depths of Askwith's pockets ,
while at the same time ho was receiving his
regular fees as an attorney. No ono who
knows the attorneys whoso names are brought
into unpleasant connection with the affair ,
would believe that they would bo guilty of
receiving any such money , even if offered by
by Askwith. Askwith , himself , denies that
there is any truth in these charros against
him andis preparing to fight the case.
His former partner , Fremont' Benjamin , is
also in court. Ho was retained as attorney
for Arch Coffman when the latter was ar
rested for killing Jack Main. Benjamin
claims that Coffman did not live up to their
agreement , and that ho must pay him $2.200
for his fees in the case. The suit against
Coffman is now on trial at Avoca. Coffman
claims that Benjamin betrayed his confidence.
Ho paid Benjamin all that he was entitled to
receive , and when ho would pay no moro
Benjamin began a warfare upon him. Coff
man .claims that Benjamin , after dropping
out of the case , went "over to the enemy ; "
in other words , that ho went to the prosecu
ting attorneys and Informed them of all the
facts on which Coffman'g ' dcfcnco rested ,
thus betraying tils confidence. It U lso
claimed that Benjamin went to other attor
neys and sought to employ them to prosecute
Coffman. If those matters are proved up It
is predicted that proceedings for disbarring
Benjamin will follow.

COUNCIL BLUFFS , . . . . IOWA.
It seems that Iowa Is losing many of Its
> est men on account of the falsely economi
cal policy followed in regard to salaries of
; eachers. The legislature has been very
much inclined to cut down appropriations for
these institutions , without regard to the
effect. Ono of the results has been that this
state hus been producing and developing
touchers , only to have them quickly taken
away by other states by the Inducement of
letter wages. Iowa docs not seem to appre
ciate Its own as much as others appreciate
Prof. Booth , born in this state , educated
hero , and ono of the best teachers in the
whole country , has been taken away by the
Philadelphia institution , this state not being
willing to pay as good a salary by several
Prof. Kennedy , who also taught here , has
aeon taken away by the institution at Jack
sonville , III. Ho was also born in Iowa and
educated in this state.
Prof. Blattncr is another Instance of the
result of a too niggardly policy. Ho was also
a native lowan , and was never outside of the
state until he was called to Texas and given
charge of the institution there , Texas recog
nizing his ability and the value of his experi
ence. A few hundred dollars a year moro
than Iowa would pay him was all that took
Miss Christie , ono of the most valued of the
lady teachers nt the institution hero. Is now
filling a resiwnsiblo position in the Wisconsin
institution. There are many others who have
been likewise taken away from Iowa. With
these facts right before their eyes it might be
well for the legislators' in making their ap
propriations to consider whether they are
not practicing a false economy in allowing
Iowa's own intellectual products to be taken
away by a few dollars of silver.
