A Peculiar Escape.
Yesterday morning when the Burling
ton flyer pulled into the local depot a
lady passenger , evidently thinking that
she had arrived nt the transfer , stopped
from the train and entered the depot.
She then learned her mistake and as
the train was starting rushed out to got
on board. The conductor shouted to her
and waved her back , but she would not
heed. him. She- had a bird cage in ono
hand and n largo bundle in the other ,
and in attempting to got upon the steps
of the car missed her footing , and had
not Olllcor Unthank caught her as she
was falling , would undoubtedly have
gene under the wheels. She was much
excited and gave as a reason for her
haste that her husband had been in
jured at Omahn on the preceding day ,
and she had left her homo in Burling
ton in response to a telegram , and was
much afraid , that hu might die before
she reached him. When bho realized
her narrow escape she burst into tears ,

to the otllcor whoso quickness and pres

The Park Case.
The Fnirmount park case was called
n thosupcrlor court yesterday morning.
The city of Council Bluffs was not made
a party in the case , and filed n motion
asking that it be made ono of the defend
ants. The Attorneys for the plaintiff
strongly objected to such n proceeding ,
mil the entire day was occupied in ar
guing the mutter. If the plaintiffs can
succeed in freezing out the city the case
will be practically settled , and victory
assured for them , but the city's attorneys
ire not disposed to lot their client sutler
in that manner. The firm of Wright ,
Baldwin ft Haldano , representing the
plaintiff , are catching at every straw
that can possibly help their case , and it
seems to rest ut present in a mesh of
legal quibbles and technicalities. In
the course of his argument , Mr. Bald
win assorted that the city hud no rihgt
whatever to be made n defendant , and
that such n thing was entirely without
precedent. Unfortunately for the suc
cess of Mr. Baldwin's nsscrtlon , a simi
lar case had at one time been decided
by his own father , and in such a man
ner as to fully establish the
city's claim as made by its attorneys.

sides and the motion was hotly con

strong position on the defensive , and
invited the plaintiff to go ahead , and
they would try to keep closely behind.

The plot thickens in the Levy swind
ling case , and the probabilities of an
amicable settlement are decidedly small.
The case seems to 1mvo taken a personal
turn and will be prosecuted with consid
erable energy. Since Mr. Levy's re
turn ho promised Mr. Soars that his
half of the bill would'bo paid , but that
Mr. Rudio would never get a cent , and
that if ho ( Levy ) only had the money
necessary to pay a fine , Rudio would
rusticate for his health for a couple of
weeks. When Rudio was informed of
the proceedings , he obtained n warrant
for Levy's arrest , and that gentleman
was quickly taken into custody and car
ried before Squire Shuns , where he was
charged with obtaining money under
fal&o pretonscs. Ho furnished bonds for
his appearance and was released. Ho
then devoted himself to securing the
names of these who are in the habit of
playing games at the Manhattan , and
it is said that he will have Rudio ar
rested for keeping n gambling house ,
and will have those parties summoned
as witnesses before the grand jury.
Rudio was also closotcd with Colonel
Dailey to see about having Levy taken
before the grand jury. It is some time
since the proprietor of the Manhattan
has had so much business on his hands ,
and it is suggested that he secure a
proxy to look after his legal business so
that no can give his full time and atten
tion to booming George Rudio as the
coming alderman of the First ward.
The Manhattan has the reputation ol
being a strictly temperance billiard hall ,
and while cards are played there for
cigars , that seems to bo the nearest approach
preach of a violation of the gambling
law which can be touched upon. If an
attempt is made to construe this into
gambling the case will bo watched with
much interest. The whole trouble has
arisen over the claim that Levy gave a

A NATIONAL BANKRUPT LAW
The Needs of Commerce Demand
THE PRESENT COMMERCIAL CODE
By Reason of Conflicting Lawa of Dif
ferent BtatPa It Works an Injus
tice to the Creditor and an
Injury to the Country.
Written for the Ute by Lew Frank.
A period has boon reached in the his-
lory of the commercial community when
it is often impossible to find out the
financial standing of n merchant
unless wo accept his own
statement and representations in
rotation to his own circumstances. It
often happens that the statement re-
ied upon is false and that his repre
sentations were fraudulent , but ho has
our goods and we have them not , nor
have wo the price agreed by hjm to bo
paid ; ho makes an assignment , or other
wise conveys them shortly afterwards ,
nnd wo got them not , because ono , or
thrco , or eight of his many creditors ,
who happened to bo advised of the con
veyance , were on the spot nnd sued out
writs of attachment before wo could got
there , nnd , consequently , in the scram
ble , wo were loft behind. Perhaps in
the next race wo will beat the other fol
lows ' . '
'by n nose.
The failures also , of which wo often
hear and more often nro interested in ,
cause great surprise , amounting almost
to consternation ; merchants who were
counted as men of integrity and in high
financial standing , after buying our
goods , mnko assignments in which pref
erences are given to a number of so-
called confidential creditors at the ex
pense of other creditors. In this case
again , "wo are left with the bag to
It may easily bo seen that in the in
tercourse between merchants of the dif
ferent states in n business way , many
circumstances are required to bo taken
into consideration before it can bo as
certained what is the true rule by which
the interpretation , obligation , and ral-
idltv of contracts are to be governed.
There now exists a condition of things
which , for confusion of the law , has no
parallel in the history of any nation.
What then is to be done under the
existing condition of things which , for
confusion of the law , has no parallel in
the history of the nation ? In the differ
ent states and territories of the union
what law is to regulate the contract , or
to determine the rights , or its consequences
quences ? What law is to interpret its
terms , ascertain the character and extent -
tent of its stipulations ?
Doctrines relating to insolvents , and
especially assignments for creditors of
insolvents have been conceived by the
judiciary federal and state with such
diversity of opinion , that the confiding
creditor can not know when the attach
ing creditor will consume all the assets
of the insolvent debtor , though his
assignment was honestly made without
intent to defraud any one.
In some of the states an assignment Is
sustained , notwithstanding the fraud of
the assignor ; if the assignee is not
proved to bo a party to the fraud. In
other states the conjoint fraud of assign
ors or assignees is not sufficient to sot
aside an assignment unless the credit
ors to bo bone tit ted thereby were par
ties to the fraud.
In many of the states the assignee can
pursue assets secreted or fraudulently
conveyed by the nssignorwhllo in other
states ho cannot do this. In some states
an assignor may exact releases as a
condition to accepting under the as
In some states an assignee must sell
the assets at public auction , while in
other states he must otherwise dispose
ol them. In most of the states the in
solvent debtor may prefer some of his
creditors to the exclusion of others. In
many of the states , such old doctrines
presuming good faith are applied , that
it is often impossible to sot aside a frau
dulent conveyance , no matter what evi
dence there bo to prove the fraud. The
orders of the chancery court must bo
invoked in other states for . the
purpose of setting aside a fraudulent
conveyance. In some of the states n
complicated method of proving accounts
is in force , while elsewhere the method
remains vague and uncertain ; the
statutes of limitations , the homestead
nnd exemption laws , the laws regarding
separate property and rights of married
women vary in the different states.
Frequently , in the application of general -
oral law , a conflict between state and
federal , nnd between different state
tribunals will be found to exist , respect
ing the effect of certain stipulations.
Persons capable of contracting in one
state are incapable by the laws of an
Considerations good in one state are
insufficient or invalid in another.
The public policy of one state permits
or favors certain agreements which are
prohibited In another.
The forms prescribed by the laws of
ono state , to insure validity of contracts ,
are unknown in another.
Creditors and debtors should not be
loft to this interminable confusion to
the difficulties and uncertainties grow
ing out of the varying doctrine.
Technical law will not answer. These
laws are made by men who , in their ig-v
norance of business matters , have made
them impractablo , therefore they are
unavailable ; they are unwise , therefore
they are unjust ; they nro deplorable and
therefore impossible. There is no con
fidence in the situation. In the light ot
a vast development in mercantile enter
prise ; when we recollect that the trans
actions of merchants , manufacturers and
financiers of our largo cities , extent
over the whole country , without regard
to state limits ; that no discrimination
against citizens of other states is allowed
in any state hero , we must realize the
necessity and policy of having uniform
codes , uniform doctrines.
If the bankrupt act of 1867 was defect
ive , it could have boon cured. Defects
are not limited to n bankrupt law. They
are much greater in criminal and other
laws. To add to the difficulties of the
situation , each insolvent , except per
haps in a very few states , in making an
assignment , generally exacts a release ;
he may , with impunity , perpetrate
frauds incidental to , or in anticipation
of , an assignment ; he may hope for im
munity in many cases , by means of will
ing friends , a wife's separate property
or business , the kindly offices of a sym-
thizlng jury , or Iho conservative and
scholastic disposition of a common law
judge ( although most of thorn are men
above reproach , temptation or preju
dice , the bench is composed of many
such. ) The debtor's neighbors , who
usually are the only witnesses of bis
fraud , and frequently sit in the capacity
oj his jurors , are not very apt to assist
the creditors in making their money.
It is all wrong.
This is a question of broad national
concern. There is a general desire
among merchants and business men
generally , to gvercomo the irrcgulotL-
, lcs nnd imperfections arising from
these causes , and to bring order out ol
chaos. I do not kuo\v how this can be
done except by our reureBCDtMiveq In
congress to show tnelr capacity to deal
intelligently with the question. It
scorns to me n sense of its responsibility
would impel congress to furnish the
proper and much needed relief by pro
nouncing in favor'of ' an net of uniform
Onnkruptcy n measure which nny fair-
minded merchant could prepare ; ono
which would meet the exigencies of
trade all over the country n mcnsuro
which Is simple , " just" ana reasonable ,
but wise and judicious , in its terms.
Such a law , which shall make an end to
our troubles , establish the unbreakable
order of our prosperity , nnd protect us
from further calamity , should bo in
scribed on the national statute book. It
is a necessity of the first importance. It
is for the good of this commonwealth
from ono end to the other.
Interests , great nnd powerful , nnd the
material prosperity of the country will
be subserved thereby. It is vise legis
lation ; The benefits which such a law
would confer might bo much prized.
Its influences , certainlywould bo widely
extended. Under it justice might bo
meted out to both debtor nnd creditor.
Many judges nnd courts might bo dis
pensed with complicated nnd tedious
litigation would bo prevented nnd ren
dered impossible piles upon piles of
law-books on subjects relating to insol
vents , frauds , contracts , assignments ,
sales , partnerships , etc. , etc. , would bo
consigned to obscurity. Such an enact
ment by congress is not opposed to , nnd
is within the grant of grant gf powers
made by that grandest monument of
human wisdom the constitution.
Everywhere in all this broad land dif
ferences of opinion as to its true theory
and its proper construction in some
points existed from its very creation ;
and while I admit the principle of local
self-government is vital to our Institu
tions , by a fair construction of the con
stitution , the rights of the several
stares will not bo interfered with.
Commerce comprehends all that is in
cluded In commercial intercourse be
tween states in all its branches ; and
this is the commerce of a state which
congress may control , while it may not
control the ordinary trade , the buying ,
selling , the making of conveyances and
contracts , confined to ono state exclu
sively. It has no power to control trans-
nctions bntweon citizens of the same com
munity , but may proscribe rules and
regulations for carrying on commercial
intercourse between citizens of ono state
and these of other states , or wherever
it is not exclusively limited to a single
state. These powers were intrusted to
congress for the welfare of the nation
and its people.
It has been hold that the state may
make and enforce insolvent laws in the
absence of a national bankrupt law , and
under these may discharge debtors
from further liability on their contracts
on such condition as shall bo reason
able ; but such law * can only bo applied
to contracts subsequently made within
the state , and between residents thereof.
But unquestionably there is an under
current of hostility to any legislation on
the subject which'it ' is impossible to ex
plain. American statesmen certainly
take a narrow view of national needs
and duties. It h to bo hoped , however ,
that intelligent relief in the direction
of this plan has not been practically ex
hausted and that" such action may betaken
taken by those interested to induce our
lawmakers , in spite of the many obstruc
tionists in both nousns of congress , to
agree upon a cocjq not to bo miscon
strued or evaded , a code which , if it bo
imperfect , might ; " bo amended or cured ;
a code to meet tpquiromonts Jof our
enlarged experience ono code can bo
modified , if necessaay , better than
scores of statutes to make that code
simple nnd plain but to make it.
The business man in the great mer
cantile centers , especially ho who has
charge of the credits , said to have in
view but one great end , ono masterful
ambition , swallowing up all time and all
energy alike in his lustful greed , much
misunderstood to worship only at the
shrine of Mammon , is not bent upon all
conceivable methods of gain , is not de
voting all his strength , all capabilities ,
except for the purest , the most legiti
mate methods. He has grown within
himself the life-soil of sacrifice , self-
denial and some of the noblest virtues ;
ho must suffer in more than one respect
from a misapprehension of the analogy
between the laws and constitutions of
the different states ; in his conscien
tious efforts for the success of his firm ,
his only safeguard scorns to bo , to stay
nwako all nigbt , that ho , like the early
bird of old , may catch the worm : ever
apprehensive of the dangers that
threaten his house , ho does not , cannot
leave his post for a moment. But with
a national bankrupt law. under which
the just claim of ono creditor is put up
on a par with the just claim of another ,
ho will have some comfort , may take
some blessed rest from his labors , time
to devote to something more than the
literature of business.
We call ourselves the best governed ,
the most productive country under the
sun and perhaps not far behind other
great nations in enterprise , in the mat
ter of internal improvements and many
Our statesmen undertake to legis
late upon matters which they consider
vast projects , for the universal welfare.
The improvement of navigable rivers ,
cutting of new waterways , digging an
isthmian canal , building transcontinental
nental railroads what to do with the
hundreds of millions of dollars collected
each year by the government , beyond
its necessities our preposterous navy
and wretchedly inadequate coast de
fenses , may nil be subjects for consider
ation. But are the views and opinions
on this measure which I entertain and
which I have strenuously endeavored to
impress upon the legislation of the
country also to be considered ?
Are the needs'of the commercial com
munity to be ignored ?
Wo cannot persuade ourselves to be
lieve in such a. misfortune. Like the
goddess of .liberty , ' let us gaze into the
future with that * : expression of an inno
cent soul filled with a sense of pure and
confident joy ; lotos beseech , lot us lean
upon the new congress which is now in
session , and vainly hope , while con
templating a brjght and rising prospect ,
its action uponq.uestlons which affect
the trade and commerce of the country
will bring us out.of all the confusion ,
calamity nnd distress which menace us.
We wait in fretful impatience to know
whether the existing evils are to be al
lowed to continue or whether the future
prosperity will bo promoted. But if
disappointment awaits us ?

The people within tumbled out with a
