The Tree Gnu Now He Spared.
At the corner of Broadway and Pearl
street there has blood for over thirty
years n. large cotton wood tree about
which cluster historic recollections of
local interest. The old tree has been
the pride of Horace Everett , who owns
the largo brick block in froat of which
the tree has stood. There have been
many changes in the cily in Iho years
during which this tree has blood. Time
iind again there has been a clamor for
its removal and numerous uetty com
plaints because of the various alleged
reasons. Twelve years ago the city
authorities determined to cut it down ,
declaring it to bo a nuisance. Mr. Ev
erett stopped into court and a contest
followed , which did not rest until the
supreme court acted in favor of Mr.
Everett. The old iree has been pro-
lected since by a permanent injunction ,
and has stood undisturbed until now.
Old age creeping on , and the veteran
being half dead , Mr. Everett has con
cluded that , the Ireo has served its day ,
and has given permission lo the tele
phone company to cut it down. A clear
way is thus left for their line and the
woodmen commenced their work yes
Computing the original cost of the
tree with interest for these many years
ana adding the expenses of the ex
tended litigation , the old tree has been
rather a costly luxury , and the decision
of the sunrcmo court is narrated in the
Iowa reports as follows :
"Tho petilion states lhat plaintiff is
the owner of certain real estate in
Council Bluffs , on which ho has erected
a valuable block of buildings , to bo oc
cupied as store rooms and olllccs. That
just within the curbing of the sidewalk
of the street , on which said real estate
abuts , stand iwo largo , thrifty shade
trees , which wore planted in 1850 , and
have there remained without objection
since said time. The sidewalk is fully
thit teen feet wide ; lhat said trees are
perfectly safe and sound , and oiler no
obstruction to the free use of Iho street
and sidewalk ; that said trees arc pleas
ant to the eye and afford a grateful
shade to the public , and especially so
to the plaintiff and the occupants of
said building. They also atl'ord a great
protection against lire to the plaintiff's
building and those contiguous thereto ,
and voulcl greatly tend to prevent the
spread of a con Hag ration ; that the com
mon council of said city , an the loth
day of December , 187C , passed Iho fol
"Resolved by Iho common council ,
Thai all wooden posls and Irecs
standing on Broadway , between
Madison and Con tor slreels , bo and
Iho same are hereby declared nuisances ,
and Iho marshal is hereby instructed
to abate the same. " That the marshal
of said city in pursuance to said reso
lution is about to cut down said trees ,
which are nol in facl a nuisance , and
have never been so adjudged in any
legal proceeding. An injunction was
asked. No answer or pleading of any
kind was liled by defendant. A re
straining order , temporary in its na
ture , was granted and afterward an in
junction was refused , and it was or
dered that unless an appeal to this
court was perfected within ten days
said restraining order should bo va
cated , The plainlilT appeals.
Leonard Everol and B.V. . Ilighl ap
peared for appellant , and G. A. Holmes
for appellee. The courl ruled as fol-
lowv. Under Iho allegations of the pe
tition , which in the absence of any de
nial must bo taken as true , these trees
do not constitute a nuisance , and they
do nol constitute an obstruction to the
travel along said street unless the mere
facl Unit the city council huve declared
them so. So far from being so they are
botli useful and ornamental. It has
been the policy of the state to encour
age the growth of trees outside of eity
limits , and the habits and customs of
the Inhabitants of the towns and pities
of the state have been such that many
of such cities and towns now have a
generous supply of shade trees within
their borders. There IB no statute de
claring trees in a street or highway a
nuisance. Nor do wo believe such to
bo true al common Ir.w. Counsel have
cilcd us lo no adjudicated case so hold
ing. Thai an obstruction , whether il
be u tree or something else , in a high
way or street is or may be a nuisance ,
tlioro is no doubt the law so declares.
But it must amount to an obstruction to
the traveling public. UnJor the alle
gations in the petition , however , wo ar
rive at the conclusion , without serious
doubt or hesitation , that the trees in
question do nol constitute an obstruc
tion to such public , and therefore are
not nuisances , The ruling below is re
versed and the cause remanded , with
directions to grant the injunction upon
bunh terms as are equitable.
More Soared Tiiau Hurt ,

the car from the track and knocking
the mules olT their feet. The runaway
fell and silt ! under tlio car , where ho
was held fast. On being released the
flighty brute was found to bobutsHghtly
scratched. The passengers in the

they know nothing of precedent. Show

sponsibility ; make him think he is put

him about Iho benevolence of goneros-
ily ; give humanity a largo heart ; work
on his sympathies.
"But there is a very essential p-irt of
a case in the impanelling of a jury.
"Thus , if you have a ease where' your

old men on the panel as possible. Old
men have passed through suffering.
They Know what it is to bo oppressed.
They have families of their own , and

In murder cases you can startle a juror
by telling him of the possible damna

not give a verdict for death.
"Great care should bo employed in
the preparation of evidence. A lawyer
may enter a court-room with a theory
to carry out in the trial , and after ho
has advanced for an hour , discover thai
his clienl has given him a wrong story

"Butler made these points : First ,
that the gloves wore made for Ameri

Vienna wore shorter and thicker than
the fingers' of Iho Americans. Thai the
lingers of the Americans were long and
slondor. That the gloves made in Vi
enna for Americans would not bo bought
in Vienna. That if they were put up
at auction in Vienna they would bring
hardly anything. Therefore the true
value of the gloves in Vienna was lower
even than the duty valuation at the

Tlio Two Campaign
Ballimoro American : The domocralic
fight was in the hands of its best mana
gers. General Barnum was the Jliiun-
eial member of the directing linn. He
supplied the funds , kept the ollico-hold-
ors in line and attended to such work as
falls to Iho lot of Iho financial head of
any business concern.
Arthur P. Gorman was the head and
body of the campaign management , and
wbalovor crcdil is due belongs lo him.
From a room in the Fifth Avenue hotel '
the domocralie campaign was directed
by the senator from Maryland. All dele
gations sought him ; 'all ' conferences
were with him , and'if ' the loss of this
lighl is to bo altrilnUodj to a lack of ex
ecutive abilily , Iho shrewd Arthur P.
Gorman must comq , in for the lion's
share of hlumo. When , in 1884 , Senator
Gorman soul throughout the country a
memorable mcssagcito the faithful thai
Cleveland had beouoldctodho _ received
about all Iho pralseJforjtho victory. At
that time the election Jiad not boon de
cided , and apparently Miero was no real
foundation for the tlnun. But , as it
afterward turned out thai Cleveland had
won by n plurality 'of less than 1,100
votes , the rank and Hie generally cred
ited Gorman at thai time with the abil
ity that wonand the determination thai
held to a victory achieved. His reputa
tion as a politician was great not only
in his own state , but throughout the
To-day Senator Gorman is among the
defeated. Of nil these who have felt
Iho pangs of defeal , Gorman feels them
the mosl keenly. Cleveland was like
Napoleon I a man of destiny. The
Frenchman saw his Waterloo , and the
proud pacer , ) f Buffalo lias stumbled in
Kings County , while Gorman , whoso
name four years ago was the signal for
applause , has gone down under the
superior generalship pf a Pennsylvania
Senator. Luck sometimes leaves its
favorites. Destiny fails to destine.
The supposed shrewdest Democratic
politician in this country hus failed to
elect his party candidates , and por-
liapi from now on but little will bo
heard of the unconquerable sagacity of
the Miuvtluml Senator.
Now , if we judge by the results , Gor1
man must have been venkdr than the
head of the Kenublinui Campaign Com
mittee , Indeed , in so far 113 tlio
results prove anything , Quay ol ano
seems to have been stronger than the
Democratic combination Gor mini ,
Brk-o nnd Bnrnuni. With the fall
of Gorman as a national nnnnger comes
the rise of Senator Quay. Tlio Repub
lican national party owes Senator Quay
inesllmablo gralilude. From a very
early hour In the morning llll a very
Into hour of the night , he has boon al

health hns been seriously impair.nl.
Three weeks ago he said ;
"I wish the election wnsnearathanil.
I am worn oul and sick. "
He looked like an overworked man ,
nnd yet he never let up for a moment.
Processions passed the building in
which the chairman sat , but he did not
oven raise the eurtnins to look out. Dis
tinguished republicans sought him In
vain. Reporters called nnd learned
nothing. Uiu-easonablo partisans
charged him with every political crime ,
with the single exception of murder ;
but the cool , culeulallng chairman
merely worked harder. Ho was to be
arrested , but he anticipated no defense.
Ho was to be waylaid , but his usual
route from the Everett house to head
quarters was not changed. No such u
character had ever been known to the
other members of the eommitloo. He
volunteered nothing. Ho gave every
man his ear , but few his tongue.
Through all of the campaign , while
Brice was strutting the corridors of the
Fifth avenue hotel , there was no one
who could point out the republican
chairman. He was never seen about
the hotels , and seldom seen tit all.
Nothing perple.xed htm , nothing sur
prised him. Ho was never jubilant ,
