Important Land Decision Given in the
MISSOURI MEANDER LINE NOT CORRECT ,
Original Surveys Wore Incorrect
Title to u Valuable Tt-niit of Imml
Settled In Favor of ttic
An important decision was rendered In the
district court ye'tenlay , In Mi > ) case of Will
iam Slodontopl ot ul. iiiMitisl Godfrey Par-
trldgoi'tal. A tract of land con till n I UK about
two square miles was the subject of the dis
pute which led to the law suit. The land
lies ni-ur Honey Crook , several miles north of
the city. Thoru are a largo number of frac
tional lots containing a few aeroi each , lying
along the meander line of the rlvor , ai It was
aid out by the government surveyor * In
l-.1t. Rotno of thuso fractional lots were
purchased by SloJcntopf , who then applied
the doctrlno of accretion to the case and
claimed all the laud adjoining the
lots , between the meander line
nnd the river , which Is nearly a
mile away. Partridge In nls defence claimed
that the surveyors had not laid out the
meaner line whuro It belonged , but had
turned to one side on , account of the swampy
condition of the land on the river bink. Ho
brought In evidence to show that trees two
foot or rnoro thick had been found at the tlrno
of the survey growing on tne land which It
was claimed had been added by accretion
since that tlmo.
The decision of the court was In favor of
the defendant. The Ir.Junutlon which was
secured by Slcdentopf to prevent Partridge
from trespassing on the land was dissolved.
The title to the property is awarded Part
ridge. and In ; Is given a Judgment of $100
damages. The land is covered with a heavy
growth of limber , and Is valuable.

Where Is Attorney P. 1C. be.ibrook !
Tliut Is a question which has agitated the
mind of some of his friends for the past few
days. When ho commenced uls seventy-two
Injunction suits against the saloon keepers
last spring it was prophesied that he
would soon find out what a moun
tain ho was attempting to carry ,
and drop it. lie carried bis bur
den , however , longer than a goou many pco-
plu thought ho would , but Judging from ap
pearances ho ha * decided that the quickest
way for him to get rid of the unpopularity
which his move won for him was by [ raving
the city , and ho has loft. He sold out his
furniture , gave up his ollico in the Mornum
block , and took the train lust Monday for the
south , where ho formerly lived.
Whether his business will go on can not
yet bo determined. 0. R Houlton , It U said ,
will take up the trial of the injunction suits
where It was left off and will try to engineer
then through to a successful termination.
lie was looking for the papers in the cascj a
few days ago , but they were taken away by
Seabroblc and ho cannot got the court Hies
without an order from thu court , which will
hnrdlv bo given In the present case , so that
It Is hardly lilcolv that the trials will go on.
The saloonkeepers , as many of them as know
of Reabroolc's ' departure , are somewhat
hilarious over the turn affairs have taken.
They do not anticipate nny further trouble
from would-bo cnjoluers.
iiX the County Scat.
Attorney C. AI. Karl returned yesterday
morning from Logan , where ho spent Mon
day and Tuesday in the Interest of Mis
souri Valley In the county seat squabble
which is now agitating the people of Harri
son county. Ho appeared before the county
supervisors with a petition containing 4'JOO
names of citizens , asking for the removal of
the county seat from Logan to Missouri Vnl-
ley , and the attorney for the other sldo pre
sented a remonstrance containing about
thirty-llvo hundred names of Lognnltos.
There was a great deal of excitement over
the matter ur.d the meetings of the board
nro attended every day by crowds of
representatives of the two factions.
The parties who were in favor of
moving the county seat to Missouri
Valley claimed that they could prove that
false Inducements had boon hold out to the
citizens ot the county to sign the remon
strance , and the friends of Logan claimed
that over half of the signatures of the peti
tion had belonged to Idiots , Insane people ,
minors , non-residents and other inoligibles.
Evidence that would tend to establish either
of these theories was ruled out , however , by
the board. The petition and the remonstrance
contained s , 10 ! ) signatures , while there nro
only 15,000 voters in the county , so It Is evi
dent that then1 is a eoloto.l man concealed
somewhere on the premises. The board has
adjourned and will moot again next Monday
evening , deciding in the meantime what they
will do about Investigating the charges of
corruption , _
Furniture , carpets , refrigerators , baby car
riages , stoves , crockery , and all liouso fur
nishing goods , cash or on easy payments , at

Yesterday's dispatches announced that the
gamblers had been driven out of Burlington
nnd that their paraphernalia had b on boxed
up and sent to this city. An Investigation of
the report yesterday resulted In the discov
ery that a lot of gambling devices wcro
rented to William Llhoboriror , who formerly
kept a gambllnir house In this city , by n man
who had irene out of the business. Linobcrger
moved to Burlington about a year ago , and
lias been there uvorslncc. The stuff is being
returned to Its owner and that probably ac
counts for the report that Council Bluffs Is
about to bo visited again by the knights of
the green cloth. A well Known member of
the profession st.itedestordny Hint , so far
as ho know , there would bo no moro than the
usual number of gamblers in the city. It is

While there ore other great directors In
Atncrlct , and this is not In the least meant
to bo disparaging to the ability of Anton
Soldi or Walter Damroscb , still Thomas Is
nearer to us than all others , for the west has
had a taste of that which the world regards
thu highest tyno of musical thought , and this
typo has been revealed to us by
the eminent director whoso orchestra
won so great a triumph at thu afternoon and

At the matlnco the orchestra's best mini-
bow were Vorspiel from "Molstorslnger , " by
the Shakespoaio of music , Kichard Wagner ;
the unllnlsheil symphony in B minor No. 8 ,
by Schubert , and Grief's siilUi "Peer CSynt. "
Their rendition was a revelation to the atldl-
cnco. The unfinished symphony Is one of
the most sublimely beautiful compositions
ever written , and was given in u superb
manner by the inagnlllcont orchestra.
Throughout the second part there runs a
minor .strain that suggests oven to nn unl'ii-

If Americans got an impressionist view of

this side of the pond and go back to boast of
their success and convoy the false Idea

lic gaze Incessantly. They "como
like slrulows nnd depart , " and on the public
which bears ono style one day and tomorrow
another , they make no more Impression than
footprints on the sands of the sea. it Is only
now and then a man comes who is likely to
sut up n milestone to mark the line along
which music is inarching nnd leave
behind him n memory worth cherish
ing. Ono of these men is Hafael
Joseffy whoso piano playing Is
as notable as was iho violin playing of
Thcodoro Thomas years ago. At tbo after
noon performance ho plays Liszt's concerto
in A major , nnd at night the Chopin-Tauslg
concerto in E minor. From u closely
analytical standpoint possibly his best work
was douo at night , although one cannot
help but applaud his Interpretation of Liszt.
His technique is marvelous , which coupled
with a velvety touch and t'uo poetic soul
of the virtuoso makes hU playing remarkable
and raises him to the front rank of the
world's famous pianists. Ho is brilliant , and

of the a-uuto advance agent , one takes with
allowance the stories told by the heralds of
an attraction. Vet in this case they did not
misrepresent. Campanini luu regained his
voice and is singing with much of his old
time brilliancy , although the beautiful flute-
Hue qualitv , which so distinguished his voice
twenty years ago , when .ho was in the zenith
of his faun ; , Is lacking. Still thu method is
there , and tbo voluma too. At the nntlnoo
he sang an oria from ' 'Eurynntha" and
in the evening "Adelaide" by Beethoven ,
one of that composer's almost forgotten
pieces , its orchestration having been accom
plished by Air. Thomas. This song won an
encore. "Open Thv Lattice , " by Greirb , n
very rythmic bit of composition.
Miss Fleming is not properly classed.
While possessed of a contralto voice of largo

proper training , and the young lady will have
to "bide n weo" before the public will take
kindly to her style of singing.
