Thcodoro Brown and William Kopert , two
members of the chain gang , went out as usual
to work on the streets yesterday morning ,
but they came back in a rather unusual man
ner. The gang was put to work on Upper
Broadway , hut it began to rain and they
were taken into a shed out of the wet. Brown
and Uopert quietly "made a sneak" when the
attention of Oftleer Wyutt was turned the
other way , and although chained together
they skipped for the Bluffs at a double quick.
The olllccr could not then leave his other
charges , but ho soon procured a horse and
Etartcd in pursuit. He tracked the fugitives
through the mud and finally discovered them
hiding behind rome bushes. Hopert was in
clined to resist capture and picked up a stone
with which to assault the ollieer , when the lat
ter clubbed him over the head. That took the
starch out of him and tlio two were then
marched back to lull , being compelled to hold
up their hands all the way. The procession
attracted considerable attention as it Hied
back to the Jail.

The graduating exercises of tlio Council
Bluffs high school class of 'DO were held last
evening al Dohany's. 11 was the twentieth
annual commencement and the exercises were
far moiv pleasing and interesting than those
which preceded them. This was owing , per
haps , to a radical change in the programme ,
which was a decided innovation. Instead of
the stereotyped essays and orations to which
nn indulgent audlenco 1ms been wont to listen
for hours , last evening's prou'rammeconsistcd
mainly of Instrumental music ami an address
by Key. Dr. Duryca of Omaha. Tlio Strvk-
on-Blaas-last club rendered two very line
selections , and Miss Laura A. Couch gave 'a
piano solo , Two choruses by the members of
the school , with the introductory remarks by
Mr. Keliooutgen , chairman of Hio teachers'
committee , and the presentation of diplomas
by Superintendent McNiiughton , completed
the programme. The house was literally
i mcken , and It was almost an IIUIHJSSI-
b lllty to tsccu.ro oven standing room.
The stage was beautifully decorated with cut
( lowers , foliage plants and the llnral tributes
presented to the graduates. In the rear cen
ter of the stage was a largo lloral arch bearing
the Inscription "Many I'.Uhs , " and under-
ncath was very exiirecsUely wrought out the
remainder ol the class motto , "Ono Onto. "
Mr. Sehocntgcn'B remarks were very brief
but were directly to the point ,
lr. ) Duryen spoke for nearly
nn hour , but was listened to
with the closest attention. To at
tempt to reproduce a part of his remarks
would only be to do an Injustice to the whole.
At the close the class presented him with u
inagnlllcent basket of ( lowers.
The exorcises throughout were most Inter
esting and impressive.

The republican judicial convention of the
Ninth judicial district of Iowa met yesterday
afternoon at' ' o'elook In the north court room
of the county court house. In the absence of
Chairman I ) . O. Stuart of the Judicial central
committee H. C. Watklus of Mills county , at
the request of the committee , called the con
vention to order.
Judge Stockton of Page county was elected
temporary chairman and Shirley Gilllland of
Mills county temporary secretary.
On motion the following committee on cre
dentials , comprising ono delegate from each
county In the district , was then appointed :
Audubou , W. H. Green : Cass , Julian Phelps ;
Ficmont , W. H. Koberts ; Mills , W. M.
Kvans ; Montgomery , (5. ( M. Cline ; Page ,
William Anderson ; Pottawattamie , A. S.
Hazelton ; Shelby , U. M. Pomeroy.
The following were appointed as n commit
tee on organization : Audubon , F. K.
Springer ; Cuss , F. J. Macomber ; Fremont ,
Dr. Sanborn ; Mill * . II. C. Watklus : Mont
gomery , Goodman Kink ; Page , James Me-
( 'abo ; Pottawattamie , Frank Shinn ; Shelby ,
The committee on credentials reported the
names of delegates entitled to a seat in the
convention and recommended that each
county should be allowed to cast the vote of
absent delegates. The report was received
and concurred in.
The commit toe on permanent organization
reported in favor of making the temporary
organization iwrmanent , which was done.
On motion of I. N. Flickinger of Pottawat- '
tamio county the clerk was instructed to call
the roll of counties to present the names of
candidates. All the counties passed with the
exception of Fremont , Montgomery and 1'ot-
tawattamie , which presented the names of
lion. A. B. Thonfrll , Hon. H. K. Dcemer and
Walter I. Smith respectively.
On motion ot C. M. Harl of Pottawattamie
these tbreo gentlemen were declared the
nominees of the convention for the ollico of
district judge by acclamation.
The names of the following gentlemen were
presented us members of the judicial central
committee : Audubon , W. 1C. Green ; Fre
mont , A. V. Penn ; Mills , Shirley Giliilaud ;
Montgomery , J. M. Juiikin ; Page , II. E. Par-
cello ; Pottawuttamie , C. G. Saunders ;
Shelby , Cyras Beard.
This concluded the business proper of the
convention and loud calls were made for the
nominees. W. I. Smith was the first to re
spond. Ho thanked the convention for the
honor conferred upon him and gave a brief
review of lliojc who had previously filled the
position of judge in this district. Ho promised -
is-ed to do his duty if elected.
Judge Thonicll then ciimo forward in re
sponse to repeated calls , and said that one of
the lawyers in the back part of the court
room had told him that he had been talking
during tne past four veal's when they didn't
want him to , but that now ho must talk
when he itidn't waul to. Ho said
that the situation reminded him of the
school boy who was asked by the teacher to
sped whoopingeough. It was a puzzler for
the boy , and he finally exclaimed , ' 'See ' here ,
teacher , that ain't fair. I had my spell last
vintct' . ' It seemed to him that ho "had his.
spell last winter. ' ' Ho declared that ho was
a republican and liked the principles of that
party , but ho was of the opinion that the con
vention would boiievo him when ho stated
that if re-elected to the district bench ho
would discharge bis duties as during tlio past
four years in a manner free from any political
preferences or prejudices. Ho thanked the
convention for the faith they had manifested
Judge Dcemer was then called for , but
Chairman Stockton stated that that gentle
man was disabled and unable to be present.
Mr. Gillikmd then insisted that Judge
Carson should bo heard , as ho was about to
retire , and tell the convention why ho liad
refused to bo a candidate for another term.
The judge responded , and .said ho had known
the three nominees for many years and
knew them all to be upright , hardworking ,
conscientious gentlemen. Ho was pleased to
see them nominated by the convention , and
hoped that their choice would bo ratified al
the polls. As for himself , ho thought that
his duty te himself and his family was para
mount to any obligation to the people. His
hei.lth had been failing lor over a year , nnd
he felt that on that account ho must decline
to be a fandld.ito for another term.
A motion to adjourn was then made and
After the convention adjourned the newly
elected members of the central committee
met in the judge's room and selectetl C. G.
Saunders of this county us chairman.
The convention was ono of the most har
monious over held in the district ; in fact , as
a prominent democratic spectator remarked :
' There was no use in holding it , only just to
go through the necessary form. "
The nominations arc very satisfactory in
tlio city , mid several of the delegates who
were heard to express an opinion declared
that they knew they would be just as satis
factory in outside counties , and in fact all
over the district. Judges Doomer and
Thornell are both very popular by reason of
their records on the bench , and Mr. Smith ,
who is booked as Judge CHI-SOU'S successor ,
is a very popular young man and is sure of a
S.dd one of the delegates : "Tho democrats
will probably single out ono of the three ,
whom they will try to defeat. They can't
beat them all , and will undoubtedly concen
trate their energies. They won't tackle Judge
Dcemer , as he has n very strong hold and is
Intensely popular , especially with the young
men all over the district. Judge Thornell
will offer a moro promising opening for them ,
and 1 expect to see them muku their light on
him , but it wou'l do them a bit of good.
Judge Dcemer will get democratic votes
botli hero in tlio city and among the farmers ,
as ho is ono of the most thoroughly concien-
tious men ever on the bench. It wouldn't defer
for them to try to beat Smith. They mlghl
try the 'kid dodge' and claim that he was too
young , but that very thing would cell up
votes for him. Wo have an example right in
this district. Judge Dcemer was under
thirty when elected and ho has made an ex
cellent man on the bench. The same Is true
of Judge Kiivamiugh of DCS Molncs , I tell
you It Is getting to bo very popular to put
young men on the bench , and it has worked
first rate so far. Wo will elect nil three of
the nominees. "
"That was a flue looking body of men , " de
clared u leading democratic attorney , re
ferring to the convention. "Thero were
moro lawyers than I expected to see , for the
bar all over the district was well represented.
I wouldn't mind getting a nomination myself
from such a lot of men , for they sized up a
great deal better than tbo usual convention. "

Tried For Kidnapping.
The colored population held a lovco ycstor-
d'iy ' afternoon In Justice Scliurz' court room.
The case that called out such a largo proportion
tion of the colored population was that of the
State vs. Mrs. McDonald , the defendant be
ing charged with kidnapping. It seems that
.McDonald and his wife have had moro
or less trouble , and the result of it is
this case. The testimony Introduced
showed that McDonald's sister , Mrs , Clav ,
was uiiablo locaro for her baby , and left It
with the McDonalds , with the understanding
that It was to remain there as long as the
husband and wile lived together. When In
ternal dts.MMitlons wrecked the jtt'aeo of the
McDonald family , the troubles of the Clay
Infant began. Mrs. McDonald took the chilli
to Omaha , and her husband caused her ar-
ix'st on the charge above mentioned. The
woman came b.ick without a requisition , and
owing to the fact that the prosecuting wit-
\vas uot ready for trial the prisoner was
sent to the county Jail. After hearing all of
the evidence yesterday afternoon , the justice
found himself as much In the dark at over
regarding the true state of affairs , ami de
clared that ho would have to take a little
time to think It over. The coso Is now held

Engineer Tom Savage , who runs on the
Northwestern limited , would scorn to raid a
chicken coop , or under ordinary circum
stances appropriate anything that did not
belong to him , bul he has jusl acquired pos
session of a rooster in a somewhat remarka
ble manner. He was pulling Iho limited
westward Wednesday morning , mid whizzed
through the town of Woodbine at n rate of
forty-live or fifty miles on hour. It so hap
pens that the rooster with whom this r.tory
has to deal was accustomed to crowing in
Woodbine every morning , and on Wednesday
stalked over to the depot to aeo the limited
go through. It took a position In the middle
of the track , and did not discover that the lo
cation was an unfavorable one until the train
was almost upon it , when it tried to fly out of
the way , but was unsuccessful and was
dashed * against the boiler head. Savage -
ago supposed that the bird was
killed ami left besldo Ihe track.
The train did not stop until it reached Mis
souri Valley , and then pulled out again for
the Bluffs. Tbo surprise of the engineer can
bo imagined when ho went around the front
of his engine after reaching this city to find
the venturesome bird roosting Jusl back of
the pilot and hanging on with teeth mid toenails -
nails after its ride of thirty-five miles. It was
apparently uninjured. Savage boxed it up
and took it back to Boone with him. It goes
without say ing that ho claims the rooster as
his private property. Ho counts everything
grain that comes to his hrjpper. and while as
above stated ho would not rob a hen roost ,
ho deems everything legal plunder that is
caught on the fly. It is dollars to dimes that
a Woodbine constable could not get that bird
with a writ of replevin.

sufficient to say hero that they believe that

degree nnd popular confidence has been so
largely shaken in regard to elections in many

\ Humor That the German Govern
ment. IN Ordering It.
Nr.w YOIIK , Juno 19. A local paper says :
The recent shipment of $2,25 1,000 , in gold to
Germany , STftO.OOO of which went on the
steamship Columbia this morning , has been
followed by the circulation hi banking circles
of several disquieting rumors , ono reaching
government ofllcials to the effecl that the
Shipments are on direct orders from the Ger
man chancellor. One of the leading bankers
hero said : "The , recent advance in
exchange in Berlin and the low
rate of sterling exchange in Germany
nvoso from the policy of extending German
export business and at the same time placing
such restrictions on imports as to practically
prohibit them. The reason for this policy is
that the German government is hoarding
gold , and no matter what excuse a banker
acting as its agent may make it is well under
stood that where the order comes from there
is where the uold goes to. "
It is estimated' that $10,000,000 will betaken
taken by Hcidclbaeh , Ickelheimer & Co. on
present orders from this city , and English
bankers said today that Sterling exchange
and exchange on Purls was Just at the gold
shipping point , and any .further advance in
rates would bring out largo export orders.
Tlio worst feature of the situation is the fact
that the gold bars in the assay ofllce , which
two years ago amounted to J'JD.OOO.OOO , have
decreased to S.'i2'iH)1000. ( ) If they should be
all absorbed a drain on double eagles in the
sub-treasury will follow and the banks will
lose part of their specie holdings. The opinion
on Wall street is freely expressed that the
law allowing the withdrawal of gold bars for
cxjiqrt should bo amended and the treasury
officials should insist upon paying all checks
in coin. This would limit tbo shipment of
gold to a small figure , for it wf uldtako a wide
difference in exchange for shippers to realize
a profit in shipping coin. Gold burs are of
known fineness and are charged for accord
ingly. On the other hand gold coin often falls
1 per cent below the standard of fineness and
in addition there is always a loss by abrasion.

terms of the wisdom of Lord Salisbury as
shown hi the settlement of African affairs
with Germany. By the agreement between

tory were added to the British possessions in

Dwelling with enthusiasm upon the pros
pects in Africa , ho said ho wife confident that
if ho could muster all the chiefs of the region
Unit England had acquired they would acquiesce -
quiesco in the opinion that the date of the
agreement would bo a red letter day in the
African calendar. Ho was sure that a grand
feast day would be held throughout the interior
of Africa. In conclusion ho declared that

Complaints About CCIIHIIH Taking.
Niw : YOIIK , Juno 10. Dispatches from
Albany , Buffalo , Kochcster and other points
tell of dissatisfaction with the work of the
government census takers , the complaint
coming from all places that the census so far
is decidedly Incomplete , many districts not
enumerated , etc. At Albany it is proposed to
order an enumeration by the city at once for
comparison with the government work.
ST. Lous , Mo. , Juno 10. From figures fur
nished by the census supervisor by permis
sion of Superintcmliint Porter It is estimated
thai the government census will place St.
Louis' population at t.'HI.OOO. Complaints of
careless work and districts not visited by
enumerators are pouring in on the news
papers , and It is probable that an effort will bo
made to have a local count unless the govern
ment work Is carried on to a fuller extent.
LONDON , Juno 10. Several Parncllllcs and
a number of government members were
absent from the house of commons tonight. It
is stated that Archbishop Walsh has written
a letter to the Fr0oinan's Journal severely'
lecturing the absentee Parnellltes who saved
the government from-dcfcat. Ho says that.
unless thov can gl\iO \ i satisfactory explana
tion for their alisem-o ho will find it hard to
further trust In the Irish party.

the ohureh. " This WIIH tin ; way in
whii'h a jironiiiii-iit truiU-t : of a MrooK-
hil churcli uxpn-hs hi runsirtuin th it
tlio timo-hunurud wuthod uf u eunyivi ;
tion calling n minister to u pulpit and
hearing what ho could say for himself
was about done u\vay with , provided tlio
minister i a lirsl-clasH prenchop , says
the ls'o\v York Sun. This conclusion
lias also been reached by the twelve
church members comprising the trustees
and prominent ullichils in t J Lafayeito
Avenue Presbyterian church , formerly
ministered to btlio Hc-v. Dr. Theodore
L. Cuylop. UP. t'uylop resigned in
April 'last , and since that time the
church has been casting about for a lit-
ting successor. ip. Cuyler continues to
supply tlio puipit , but 'docs no pastoral
work in the parish.
Tlio means taken by tlio committee to
learn of tlio talent ami general Illness of
a preacher fop tlio Lafayette nveiiuu
church partakes of the nature ( if detec
tive work. "It must be confes > ed , ' ' said
tlio trustee to tlio reporter , "tho reason
for the change from tlio old method of
bringing a minister before us to our
hunting ono up lies in the fact that there
are comparatively fovy A 1 mimslorn
nowadays. Congregations gro\v in si/.c ,
grow enormously rich sometimes , but
the number of good preachers does not
grow proportionately. Yon can't got a
minister of any prominence nowadays to
submit to the old system where ho was
called before tlio congregation and
tested , lie knows he is on exhibition ,
ami ho feels it. It has been u system
always abhored by ministers , and now
that there is such a scarcity of good
ministers , any ono ot thorn would lot us
know in a way wo wouldn't forgot if we
should summon him to go on exhibition
for the benefit of people who happen to
bo in church. on tlio morning ho
"This tendency in churches1 contin
ued the church trustee , "exists not only
in Presbyterian and Congregationil and
other churches without bishops , but also
in the Protestunt Kptseopul and Metho
dist Episcopal churches and all others
except the church of Home.Vhcn a
minister finds a church ho likes it's
pretty ilillieuU for tlio higher powers of
the church to order him to a pasture
whore tlio pickings are lean.
"In the Lafayette avenue church wo
have got the system of hunting up u
minister down ton line point. Wo meet
at ono of the committeemen's houses in
the latter part of every week and sit be
hind locked doors. Then we decide what
churches each of us is to visit on the
coining Sunday. On Kriday or Saturday
wo scatter , if a cominittcoman has to go
to Chicago , St. Louis op St. Paul he
starts earlier in the week. No one knows
when wo start. Our families do not
know where wo are going wlu-n wo leave
town. Oar .secrecy is maintained in
order that no intnihtor may learn that
wo are coming his way and prepare an
extra line sermon for his Hock , ostensibly
preaching to them but really talking for
a big increase of salary. Ono of tlio
tilings to bo avoided in , tlio former sys
tem was the fact that tlio candidate put
on an extra burst of speed and the con
gregation didn't know how ho would
turn out when ho got down to his regular
gait. Tlio visitor to tlio church selected
slips unporcoiveil into a scat in tlio rear
of tlio auditorium , and itoea his ears ami
eyes like a reporter.
"Tlio committee , on returning to
Brooklyn , meet and compare notes , and ,
on a very favorable report of a certain
minister , several members , visit the
church ami hear him. This Is as fur as
wo have got. When wo are sure we can
recommend a minihtcr to the church , a
meeting of the members will be quietly
called , and tlio chairman of the commit
tee will sot forth tlio reasons for inviting
a certain minister to become tlio pastor.
An alHpmatlve vote of a majority will
settle it , ami lie will be invited. Very
likely ho will bo a very much surprised
man when lie gets the invitation , for it
will bo untrammelled in its nature us re
gards any dictation by tlio olllcers of tlm
church. This was tlio cour.-o pursued in
getting Dr. Meredith of the Tompkins
Avenue Congregational church , and the
result proves its wibdom. You see , the
byhtom gives Iho church a wider Held to
grn/.o over in the Mime time than tlio
old method. Dr. Cuylor's succobsor will
probably not bo chosen until fall , "
