( Scnurn.1 Supnriutciulctit.
The icfutoiy statement in the Herald per
taining to the nitlclo published m TUB HKE
Monday , to the effect that the Union Pacific
i was considering the matter of adopting the
system of oporatinif now in vogue on the
Northern Pacific , thereby abolishing the de-
pal tmcnt of general superintendent , appears
to havu been written without inquiry having
been made regarding the matter. When ques
tioned concerning tbo statement yestculay ,
Vice President Holcomb , of the Union
Pacific , said : "Yes , it is true , wn have bqcn
considering the matter of adopting tlie sys
tem now used by the Noithern Pacific ,
thereby doing away with the olllce of gen
eral supoilntendcnt. While nothing definite
has been arrived at , wo still have the move
ment under consideration , but will not likely
take any action ut present. I believe myself
that , on n long nnd largo system like
that of the Union Pacific. mutters
can bo handled more satisfactorily and with
less expense by having the operating directly
vested in the general nianagenfcnt It is for
this reason that we are considering the
change. "
It is nlso understood that Superintendent
Cumings will bo appointed assistant general
managw , ns was repotted in TUB BUB , but
no definite information could be gleaned in
this respect.

The matter uf amending the present gur-

bearing the signatures of U5'J in

ask that the laws bo so amended as lo pre
vent an action of garnishment from being
Instituted in Iowa courts simply bueauso the
corporation by which they are employed
docs business in that section. They also usk
that the law bo so amended so as to exempt
non-resident employes from garnishment In
Iowa courts and under Iowa laws. This pe

early In Its session. In npoaklng of the mat

The following communication , signed

editor of TUB Hen.
In regard to this garnishec business , I
wish you would show up n little of the other
side of the question. For my part , I thinlc
the merchant .should be held in as much es
teem as the ion clerk , and if the
ganiishco Is so modified or abolished , it will
place a higher premium on rascality. I have
yet to hoar of a man who tries to pay his
debts , a sick man , or u man with sickness in
his family being garnishecd , and 1 think
theie should bo some protection for the
merchant against dead beats , who would
take advantage of this law. The Lord
knows it is ceitamly not a sure protection in
its present stale. I have been in the grocery
business in this city for nearly seven years ,
and owing to my inability to collect out
standing debts , failure stares me in the face
at every moment. _

nun or fall weather , u tail , slender young
man may bo seen making his way throupl
the streets of Dos Moiiies , heavily laden with
newspapers His voice can bo heard for
blocks as ho advertises the lending dallies til
over the country To people who buy papers
at ; i or 5 centa per copi , it seems ni'if the
v ender of so cheap an u tlelo was not on the
direct road to wealth , but the history of this
hoi piovca that It is sometimes possible for
a newsboy to accumulate ipjlte n respectable
fortune. Moses Jucotia , commonly callei
Mose , was bom in Itootu-stor , N. Y. , in Jan
uary , 1370. His parents moved to Dos
Molnes when Moso was enl > six notiths old.
He is n Jew , nnd iwsscsscs all tlio ilimneial
ability which Is generally supposed to chnrnc-
toii/o that nationality Moso is now nearly
nineteen .veara old , nnd has been selling
papers for fourteen Ae.u s , Uurini ; that tune
ho hat saved about { -1,000 , which ho invested
in real estate. Ho attended school nearly
ten yenis , leaving Just ns ho was prepared
for the high school , and afterward attended
a business college lor n short time. Muse is
very popular vvith the small newsboys , who
evidently consider him n brilliant member of
their profession. Ho is invariably polite ,
obliging mid strictly bonoiable. and doubt
less owes his success in no small decree to
those qualities. His average sale of papcis
Is about three thousand per week. Ho never
patroni7os the news stund , but
duals directly with the publishers
Nearly all the business men in the city
buy their dallies of Mose , nnd ho has also
( piito a number of icgular maga/ines cus
tomers. Moso is to DCS iMoincs people , the
most familiar iijure on the streets , and tran
sients soon learn to know him well. Pour
years ago he icceived n pony from Alex
Swan , the Cheyenne cattle klmr , as a token
of aDpicciation. Duiing thu past summer he
accompanied the Iowa editorial association to
the Yellowstone park , and was gieatly de
lighted with the tup , Mose has uo sciuples
about confessing that he is u6t a chuich-
goer , butsais that ho would about as soon
intend any other chinch as the Jewish. His
polities , ho laughingly says , are" mixed , but
lie is moi o favorably inclined toward republi
canism than democracy. Moso is a model of
teuipciance , using no intoxicants whate\or.
When asked if he had ever had any lov o ex
perience , he replied emphatically , "Not the
ieast bit. " However , on bright spring days
when the girls go to the woods to gather wild
llovvcrs , Mosc is frequently seen hurrylnir up
to a crossing to intercept a bevy of i etui ning
maidens ladc'n with violets and johnny-jump-
ups. Ho nlwajs goes away gaily dccoiatcd
with a big button hole bouquet , and his genial
face wreathed in smiles.
The Iowa G. A. R.
AVOCA , In , Jan. 2. [ Special to THE lluc ]
At the regular meeting of U. S. Grant Post
O. A. H. , a sensation occurred that but
rellects the sentiment of nil Iowa upon
a matter that some would have us bclievo is
national in its scope. This is the homo uost
of Major E. A. Consigny , department com
mander of the G. A. H pf Iowa. The fol
lowing circular letter addressed to nil posts
was road and icceived with great enthu
siasm :
Avocv , December , IS S. Comrades : Per
mit me to cordially and heartily wish you all
a merry Christinas and a happy New Year.
No citizen of this nation desorvcs moro of
the "good things" of the land than the
union soldier. This department having
been blessed with pence und prosperity , let
us unite in praise and thanksgiving to "Him
who doefti all things well. " As our hearts
warm up at the sound of "Christmas Bells , "
and we follow the happy custom of making
glad the hciuts around our tiiosides , may we
not also do something for ourselves in the G.
A. H. i At your first meeting in January I
invite you to remember the laige list of com
rades "dropped for non-payment of dues. "
Ilally those boys by icstoring them in good
standing. Take thorn back , every one of
them , and remit their dues. They uio
deserving soldiers , but poor. Lot it not be
said that we keep a worthy brother out of
the Grand Army.of the Kepublie because ho
is poor , but lather may wo show
another mnrk of true comradeship by lead
ing in the fraternal move so strongly advo
cated by our commander in-chlof.
Will the post commanders throughout the
state see to it that a report Is sent to me of
the number of comrades restored to out
ranks ? Uest assured it will be a source of
gratification and encouragement. In F. , C.
and L. , your commander ,
E. A. Coxsioirr.
At the conclusion of the reading of the
above , Captain C. Healy , one of the most
gulla'ut of Abiahntn Lincoln's ' soldiers , n
prominent democrat and business man , made
a linging speech , insimcd by the letter from
thcdepaitmont commander und his own pa
triotism , that created intense enthusiasm.
Ho said ho was pioud of the G. A. H. of
Iowa. Ho was proud of ail-organization
that , with the eyes of all the world upon it ,
could pass through a hcatad political cam
paign without having hud at its door the
commission of a single act to mar the har
mony of thagiandcst brotherhood on earth ;
that If thcro were a million soldiers in the
United States there would not bo room for
two branches ol the G. A. H. . and that the
men who , tin ough personal bitterness , were
Booking to inspire such a move were not
worthy to bo called old soldiors.
Mr. Heali's remarks created a profound
sensation , both in und out of the order , the
democratic members of tlio order , without
exception , heartily cndoislng the sentiment.

Governor to Ulaiuo.
DKS MOIN"Kla , Dec. 31. To tbo Editor
of Tni : UI.B : In your paper of December
J ! ) n correspondent under n nom do plume
inctends to give you certain "facts" about
Chester Turnoy , in an effort to porpctimtu
and justify the fearful wrong that has been
done to this lad. It U utterly false that
Uhestcr Turnoy' father is still living , as also
Ills vicious libel against the devoted mothar ,
whose whole Ufa is wrapped up in an attempt
to vindicate und relieve her son. This state
ment is ono of numberless others of the same
kind , mid was , I believe , first circulated by u
number of Prc.ston parties in a newspaper ,
who uttered the libel , not of their own knowl
edge , but ns "they were Informed , " without
vouching In any manner for the truth of
.heir statements. Chester's ' father died when
iiu was a little boy. Mrs. James C , Beochor ,
n sister-in-lnw of the Hov. Henry Ward
Uccchor , and a lady widely known , will
wrlta an open letter contradicting , from
nor own knowledge , this falsehood , Must
.his lad , because of his helplessness , bo
compelled to deny and dispiovo every
Blander his interested enemies can Invent
tigalnit him to supplement and cover their
outrugo ? It Is useless for him to do so for
; hey can Imagine lies faster than wo can con
tradict them. You nnd your mulcts must
see that if it Is true that Cheater Turnoy has
when aftllctcd and crushed oy circumstances
beyond his conti ol , bean made the victim of
a mob excited by vagua rumor , combined
with the vicious practices of attorneys , und ,
terhaps also the court , that his release in
volves the disprnco of those who wronged
lim. Under these circumstances ton times
note opposition would coinu from efforts for
ils relief limn if tin were really a vlllian but
whom no ono had wronged. Men will huto
these whom they have injured.
If you will turn to the 88 N. W. Rep. C50 ,
furnoy vs. liarr , you will also detect at ouco
low utterly ( also is what your eosrcspoudont
i us stated us thu legal aspects of the case. It
vua this habeas corpus case which wus
nfflrtned on rehearing , and the only point In
volved was n law ) < t > int merely , namely , that
Chester could not bo relieved by hnbcnt
corpus , nnd 1 1ml appeal was his only remedy.
The supreme couri tiasnevcr decided as jour
correspondent stales that the proceedings
against Chester iiTurney were regular.
On the contrary tlia court condemns them in
strong language nnd rcgre's its Inability
under the law to grant the. relief asked As
for the appeal it has never ns jet como before -
fore the supreme court , the judgment entries
being made up in the Interests of these who
would conceal thole wrong leaves not much
to bopo for from tlrtit Your correspondent.
however , says enough to show that the trial
wasa farce , vvhii-U'i his deinonstrnbly fnlso
statements , noticed above , fall to mitigate.
The multlDllcd mid magnified charges against
Chester Tunipy , linvo never been liivostl-
cotcd or even looked Into in n court of law.
Is ho to suffer thus nnd to bo kept In prison
simply on the hints and honrsnv. of decplv
interested cnomles ? When you confront
them vv ith the statement that the lad has lirul
no hearing , nro thej to bo allowed to sn >
that ho was a bad man nnd deserved it any
waj I These parties have been overdoing
the matter. Since his imprisonment thci
have been accusing Chester Turnoy in the
most u responsible way of things very much
worse limn contained in the indictments
upon which they denied him a hearing
bliouUl they be thus loft free by suggestion
ntnt inucmlo to perpetrate their outrage I Ac
cording to the theory of some , the hid must
bo bad because he Is in orison , no matter how
his lucaiceuitioii has been eftci'tcd , nnd must
bo kept in prison because he is bad. Scandal
is true because the lint is in prison , the lad is
In prison because the scandal is true. This
vicious reasoning piccludes nil justice. Its
bitter results fall not upon the bends of those
committing the en or , but upon the father
less and those in no condition to take their
ou n part. I appeal to you sir , not to pre
sume thu guilt ot ono who bus been impiis-
oned without hunt ing or investigation of any
kind and that jou compel the slanderer to
faeo his utterances Now do not think this
wi on g is popular in the count.v where com
mitted ? A chain of circumstances made it
possible lor thu moment. There is but a
small though terribly interested coterie
Whose wrong is covered by Chester's impris
onuient. The people of Jaekson county ,
wheio the wiong was committed , repudiate
It in every way. WiiiKoop , the man up
pointed by the court to defend Chester Tur-
iioj , was defeated twice nt the polls , once
when running for judge in n district
where his party had 4,000 majority and again
only lately when running for ecounty attor
ney when the test of his county ticket was
elected by 1,000 majority and it was this case
nnd other things Just as bad which beat him.
The district attorney , Gannon , who prosecuted
cutod Tuiney has been defeated for the same
I have every reason to believe from reasons
internal and oxteinnl and positive hints in
the letter Itself that your col respondent
writes under tbo Immediate sanction and
supervision of the governor. The governor's
nttitudo to this matter has been one of cowar
dice. An aigumeiit in the case was attempted
last September andnvi itten application lllcd.
When opposition to tlie paidou developed ho
put off the full hearing of the case which bo
piomiscd and piofessed to be anxious for ,
Iroin daj to day , week to weolc nnd month to
month. It is this attitude on the part of the
governor which compelled Turiicy's friends
to attack him after waiting four months for
the proinised hearing , vvhlchjoui correspond
ent alludes to as the unwise action of Ches
ter Turnev's ' "fool friends , " but no other
