two } ears i go there has been considerable
litigation between the creditors trying to
realize on the assets Among these assets
was $120 worth of whisky and other liquors.
This had come Into the cellars of the paper
from advertisements and otherwise , and
was on hand when Receiver A mil took pos
session. Among the creditors was the Car
penter Paper company of Omaha. It at
tached on a creditor's bill and got
possession of nil the book accounts and sub
scriptions and other property not covered

searching around for further assets Its at
torneys learned from n drayman that
ho had hauled a lot of bottles In cases from i
the nevvhpaper building to the house of Mr
Hart. This was the whisky In question and
was Immediately attached and has been the
source of a great lot of legal maneuvering
ever since. The dispute over the liquor
was dually settled yesterday and an order
ijlven to tbo Carpenter Paper company for
the firewater and It was hauled forth from
the eellur of Mr. Hart's residence and carted

Word was ] received hero last evening that
the supreme court of the state had reversed
the decision In the divorce case of Attchlson
against Altchlson , granting n decree to the
plaintiff , with the custody of the two chil
dren. The case wns tried before Judge Macy
In October , 18D4. nnd the petition of the
[ ilnlntirr , Mrs. W. n. AltchlRon , was denied
The allegations were made that the hus
band had been guilty of adultery , but the
court refused to entertain the charges The
case was bitterly fought nnd the outcome
In the lower court was watched with great
Interest. The parties to the suit are both
prominent and highly connected. One of
the memorable features of the case was the
decision of Judge Macy H wns almost
fatherly In Its admonition for the parties
to settle their difficulties out of court , nnd
while the husband had nctcd Indiscreetly
there was not sulllelciit grounds for the
granting of the divorce. The opinion van
the subject of general Fommcndatlon nt the
time , and It was thought that the matter
would bo patched up.

DBS MOINiS , Oct. 12. ( Special ) The
political campaign Is just at the point of
turning Into ( ho home stretch. The main-
Kcrg ore making their last preparations for
thy serious , earnest work of the closing
< la > . On both sides they are carrjlng the
air of confidence In the result In Iowa , but
as the end draws nearer \\hatc\cr doubt
there has bicn nt any time Is being dissi
pated and It Is becoming plain that the
state will go republican by a good ma
National Commlttecman A. 11. Cummins
puts his lowest figure on the republican
majority at 35.000. Chairman H. C McMil
lan puts his minimum at 40.000 ; Treasurer
I'ray lea\cs the figure higher than this , anil
Is confident of 00,000. Two months ago the
rcniilillrnn innnnccrs admitted among them
selves that the state was not In as good
condition ns they would liavo liked The
extent of silver sentiment in the rural dis
tricts was uncertain ; It was reported to be
serious , and there Is no doubt that It was
much worse than It Is now. There has
been a steady Improvement In conditions
until now the managers say the party Is
well In line Chairman McMillan declares
the defection of republicans w 111 be remark
ably small , Insignificant In most of the coun
ties , llut , on the other hand , the expecta
tion Is that at least 30.000 old line democrats
will dtsert their party ticket. Of these It
Is counted that 25,000 will vote for McKln-
ley , and the rest for 1'almcr.
These are the estimates of the republican *
They nro given In plain figures , and. the
commlttio asserts , are based on polls of
the counties All but 3 very few counties
have been polled , many of them tttlce. The
second poll Invariably Indicates a great
Improvement. The men who In the first
count were labelled doubtful or liable to go
democratic are found to bo In line again
The Improvement has been steady and
On the other hand , the democratic com
mittee Is making blanket claims to every
thing In sight. H has not taken a complete
poll of any county In the state and Is not
iropai < ? d to name the specific counties In
which its party will make Its gains Its
members declare , however , that In all the
central part of the state the party will make
great gains. In the western part
of the state they count on
gains In all the counties except
these that Include cltlrs They claim
that their calna will continue as far cast
as the sceond tier west of the Mississippi
river ; eatt of this they admit tlia ) the situa
tion Isery uncertain , with chtnces that
they will suffer losses They Insist , how
ever , that ( heir pains will far more , than
overcome their IOSECS. The highest demo
cratic estimate of the sound money \ote
of the party Is 10.000 , of which lialf Is ex
pected to be for McKlnley ami half for
I'almcr Against this the committee 'places '
Its estimate of 35,000 to 50.000 republicans
who will vote for Ilryan. and concludes that
the democrats will carry the state by 30,000
or more. | "
COMMITTHHS HARD AT WOHK.
lloth committees are worhlnft diligently.
There Is little relaxation of energy In send
ing out campaign literature. The , number
of pieces sent out weekly Is not quite so
large as a month ago. but the .decrease IB
small. On the other hand , the burc'aus of
speaking are handling more speakers. The
demand for speaking Is unparalleled. There
has never been a year of such' Targe meet
ings. The committees are unable to satisfy
half the demands for oratory A great
number of orators from outside the state , of
national reputation , time been sent Into
