THE COUIfIKH: .WATERLOO. IOWA, WEDNESDAY OCT011EK 12 1SS7. Waterloo Courier. ar w, it. H4rJW. Waterloa, Uwi, Odubor li, lH?. J. W. Rich lias oM half liikrtwt in the Vinton &iyU to Ms partner, U. Murphy, nd retina from the editorial iwrnesa after having been connected with th KiujU for many years. Mr. Murphy i flrnt-c'ttss newspaper man and wilt keep the lvjie flying in gooa shape. Kd. P.' Seed has been nominated by the Republicans of Uuchiuinn and lel-aware counties as their senatorial candidate, Mr. Seeds Is a sterling Republican and a first-class man in every respect. ISesides, he has the honor of having been an offensive partisan. He should receive a big majority. President Cleveland in his tour through the wild, wool? west, is riding in the midst of all the JelTereoniait simplicity of a vestibule train which, as it stands on the track, Is valued at $i00,000. It is lighted with electricity and, embowered in roses, the President, his pretty wife and Pan'l, the factotum, glide' through the Uepubli-can states In the night, as far as possible, and their only wish that has not been gratified, is for an Arctic night to cover the face of the broad northwest until their train is headed for Missouri and the south again. Charles Aldrich, who has for a few weeks past been posing as an Independent candidate for Representative from Hamilton Co.,'has concluded that the demand of the people for his candidacy was not loud enough to be mistaken for a thunder-clap, consequently he has withdrawn. The principal reason for bis withdrawal from the lield, however, was the failure of the Democratic party to indorse his pretensions to the ollice, This is only another instance liable to happen in the life of all "reformers," where the ofllce fails to seek the man with anything like the soul-fui yearning which the "man" expects. Hence another choice assortment of hopes withered like a pumpkin vine after a contest with an untimely frost. Lieut. T. J. Anderson, Democratic candidate for the governorship of Iowa, makes many and loud pretenses of reform but he has a record which lets the wind out of some of his talk. The Knoxville Journal,' his home paper, in a recent issue, tells of his course as railroad attorney, as follows: "The facts are these: From the time the Rock Island road reached Knoxville until his removal to Colorado, in the spring of 1SS3, Capt. Anderson was the attorney for the company for this county, and with his partner enjoyed annual passes over all the Rock Island lines. After his removal to Colorado, Mr. L. Kinkhead, his then late partner, succeeded to said attorneyship. Capt. Anderson returned to Knoxville in the spring of 1h5, ami renewed his partnership with Mr. Kinkhead, who was still attorney for the Rock Island company, and by reason of that association became the recip ient of the annual pass over these lines and enjoveu the benetlt of it to the full est extent up to the first of January last, and during January he anticipat ed a continuance of the favor and even went so far as to make at least one trip from Knoxville to Washington. Iowa, and returning, on the strength of it, telling the conductor that his pass had not come, but that he was expect ing it every day, and the conductor knowing that he had been riding on an annual, the said conductor supposing that after the usual delay at the Itegiti-ning of the year it would come, allowed him to take the ride without paying the fare: and thus far it has not been paid. Captain Anderson will not deny this." The Tfibum and other Democratic papers of Iowa are pleased to cry out that "Tuttleism" was squelched at the St. Louis Encampment of the G. A. It. Was it? Having perhaps us good an opportunity to know as any one who was not inside the business meetings of the Encampment, we are inclined to the opinion that the sutielching process was not emphatic enough to bring much cheer to the Democratic heart. "I want to say to you that I cordially endorse what you Baid and I believe that the Grand Army endorse it, too." Who said that? Was it some one of Gen. Hragg's ''coffee coolers" whose enthusiasm had gotten away with him? No. The venerable Hannibal Hamlin, the man who was the associate of Abraham Lincoln upon the first Republican ticket ever elected, used those words as be cordially grasped the hand of Gen. Tuttle. "He is the right man raised up at the proper opportunity to say just the right thing," exclaimed a soldier from Pennsylvania m the crowded lobby of the Laclede hotel, and a half dozen other G. A. R. men from the city of brotherly love added their hearty in dorsement to the remark. "vvnere is Gen. Tuttle?" was the first words that fell from the lips of hundreds who crowded the Iowa headquarters daily as they pushed forward to shake the hero by the hand. "The reason the Vamlervoort resolu tions were not adopted is simply and solely this," said a member of the com tnittee on resolutions. "We believed that the pension resolutions expressed the same spirit couched, perhaps, in more respectful language. We believ-edinthe spirit of the resolutions but did not want to pass anything that would put the Grand Army in the po sition ot meddling with politics." .uiese expressions show what the real feeling of the Grand Army is towards tne man whose brutal lan guage in vetoing pension bills has earned for him a notoriety which no one in this country should have the as urance to ovet. They also show just how far "luttleism" was squelched and if there is any comfort to lie gam ed in the fact that the resolutions which bitterly censured President Cleveland were not adopted while the spirit of thrn was endorsed, Druiocra cy is entitled to it. uioip, hooping CorfiH and Bioriehiti immediately relieved by miuusvure. om ai , 1'. fowlers urug more. ? The l.t t Ian a Murder. In last week's ('tuiiimi a brief mention whs made of th shooting of young Drown nt (iladhrook, by a loon-keeper named lSuhnmn. After Itrowu died the murderer was taken to Toledo, Tama Co., for safe-keeping and a dispatch from there dated Oct 4, say: "A strong armed guard has been necessary around the jail to se cure the safety of liuhman, the saloon keeper who shot lirowu Saturday night, ltrown died yesterday. There have been strong threats of lynching, and it was feared that - an attempt would have been made hist night. It is now feared that nn attempt will be made to-night. Pretty full investigation of the facts in the case make the murder one of the most brutal in the history of the State, ltrown had secured the indictment of Huhman by the grand jury, swearing that Huhman sold him liquor. Afterward, whenever under the influence of liquor, the sa loon keeper showed an ugly disposition toward ltrown. Huhman hud evidently been drinking Saturday. Meeting Itrowu in front" of his place, he said: "You say Isold liiinrif you say so you are a liar." ltrown replied quietly that Huhman had sold him liquor, and had also sold to others. Huhman went into his saloon, ami returning, partly opened the door, saying again: "If you jay 1 sold you liquor you are a liar." Itrowu repeated the charge, und Huhman 11 red through the half-closed door, the bull sinking His victim in the neck. While conscious, but expecting death, Hrowu gave his version of the affair substantially as above." An In just AhnihI'. We learn that, in certain sections of the county, the Democrats are striving to secure votes against Mr. Tiwiisend, the Republican candidate for Representative, on the ground that, as member of the board of supervisors, be voted for the proposition that the county should aid in the construction of another wagon bridge in this city. This unjust assault upon Mr. Town-send proves that the Democracy have given up all hopes of even reducing the Republican majority in Hlackhawk county by legitimate political methods, iind as a forlorn hope, are striv ing to turn the heads of the voters in the county precincts by the specious argument of an unwarranted appeal to a supposed passion and prejudice. We say "supposed" because we do not believe that there really exists in the minds of the people of this county any prejudice against Waterloo or any de sire to handicap her in her forward progress. However, some of the Democratic leaders are trying to arouse a feeling in the country against Mr. Townsend, simply because he did what was plainly the proper thing to do in regard to the new bridge at this place. Tun Cockier took a prominent position in the advocacy of the building of a second wagon bridge at this place. Over a year ago we published a statement based upon actual count, of the number of people and vehicles crossing the present bridge in a week. The llgures then presented attracted considerable attention and proved conclusively that our present bridge is subjected to en I i rely too great a slrain. In fact, that another wagon bridge was rendered absolutely necessary by the demands of travel. The outgrowth of this was the agitation of the subject by our people and the proposition of the b'mrd of supervisors to appropriate J 2j,(Kii) in case the city of Waterloo would appropriate the balance necessary fr the construction of a new bridge. This proposition was accepted by the city and $7,000 appropriated to make the sum required for the new bridge. Of the $32,000 thus appropriated, the city of Waterloo pays $7,000 besides its share of the appropriation made by the county. As the city pays over one-sixth of the total tax of the county, it is fair to suppojc that its share of the i.000 appropriation will be not far from Ji.Simi, making a total of $I2,U)U for Waterloo to pay and $ to, nun for the entire county, outside the city, to pay. Another point. Since the present bridge was built in this city, Waterloo has paid into the bridge fund of this county over $ and nearly all of this sum has been spent on bridges outside this city. Taking these facts, together with Hie clearly evident, and absolute, necessity of a new bridge here, il seems to 113 that no fair-mind ed man will assume to criticise Mr. Townsend or any member of the board of supervisors, for taking a position favorabli to the construction of the bridge. Waterloo pays over one-sixth of the taxes of the county; its growth demanded a new bridge; it contributes a much larger amount in proportion to its population than does the rest of the county and the construction of the bridge will be a benefit not onlv in Waterloo but to the entire county, as well. The grand lodge of Iowa, K. of P., was held at Cedar Rapids last Wed nesday and Thursday. It was largely attended and the session was a verv interesting and instructive one.

Considerable excitement has been occasioned by reports of evictions be ing made In Iowa through the agents of an English syndicate. A Des Moines IteijiitU-r reporter having interviewed some people from O'Brien county, the scene of the outrages, gives the following particulars: The lands in question were of the grant made the McGregor & Western railroad, now the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul. It is understood that these lands are a portion of an old pat ent made to the railroad, and after wards disposed of by them to an English syndicate. There was a misunderstanding as to the legal status of these lands, there being some correspond ence between Secretary Teller, of the interior Department and Land Commissioner McFarland and the Governor of Iowa, that led settlers to believe that the lands were open for settlement, and so they took the first steps in that direction, expecting that the Government would complete the formal transfer of the land in the State and throw it open for entry. This English syndicate, which now controls some 35,000 acres iu O'Brien county, had at one time an ollice on the Strand, London, and it is reported that the Duke of Sutherland is one of the largest owners of the old land grants. The settlers who are the victims ot these proceedings, settled upon the lands in 1884-5, although souu made settlements prior to 1880, these settlements were made with the understanding that the lands were public lands, it being supposed that the railroad company hud forfeited all claim to them by reason of having failed to comply with the conditions of the grant. Most of the settlers are foreigners, principally Swedes, aud some unab e to speak the English language. Many of them are very ignorant and unacquainted with the methods of obtaining relief. They imagine that the syndicate is all powerful and are so completely terrorized by the threats of the evictors that they dare not give the facts of the case to the public for f ar of being cast into prison in addition to being put off the lands. It is said that they are actually afraid to say anything against the syndicate, however cruel their treatment. 1 1 is stated that the way ot procedure in making evictions has often been for the sheriff with a posse of men to approach the settler and offer him his choice beUeen the British contract or eviction. This contract means "give me your crops," the other "give me your lands." The lkyister of Saturday has the following Interview with Attorney General Baker relative to the action which the State is taking to stop these evictions: Attorney General Baker said yesterday: "1 have been keeping an eye on these cases all along, aud the State has doue all it could toward preventing the possibility of sujIi abuses. To-day I received a telegram from Governor Larrabee asking me to investigate the rumors of the evictions in O'Brien county and to take such action as may be necessary to protect the settlers. In accordance with this 1 have met and conversed with Dr. Hamblin. one of these settlers on the land owned by the English company that is engaged in evictions, and he reports to me that several very cruel evictions have taken place. But I lind upon examination that the cases are in such a ' condition that nothing can be done until the terms of court in November. In order to aid the settlers Senator Allison has caused to have sent to me the records of the cases litigated in the United States Supreme Court which I have forwarded to the attorneys of the settlers at LeMari. Iliad written some time ago to the Commissioner of the General Land Ollice for maps aud rec-cords in his ollice to be used in these trials and have his lettir to the effect that the same are being prepared and will be sent forward as soon as possible. I have also written to Attorney General Garland for other rec-cords. It will be thus seen that we are making all preparation possible to protect the settlers in the courts and prevent the disgrace of Iowa by allowing evictions to take place at the hands of a British syndicate."

It by cum cou-sldred laiMenlng sound, xrhaps be-rute it It usually beard at the approach of autumn wbeu the. night air sennit ladun with IU ttrldiiloui niutlo. It turvivei the light, early frost , and t lea It forth on the warm and mellow days, but the sharper frosts still IU voice entirely: then they uaually either die or retira to hibernate In winter-quarters, choosing such localities as ar free from the Invanion of water. Crickets (Sryllun) belongs to the genus of Orthopterous Insects, ot the division Haltatoria, In which the legs are long and strung, and formed for leaping. They are, however, while able to leap powerfully, alto able to use their wings very skillfully. Home of the most familiar species of the group besides the crickut are the katydids, locuxts, gratsboppers, cockroaches and Uiole-criekets, " The wings of the cricket are folded horl-rou tally and lie along the sides or top of the buck. Among the wings are the wing-corers its Instruments of iiiuhIc. These are reticulated witb large veins Irregularly curved, and when the cricket desires to rreute bis niUHio he raises these wing-covers a little aud rubs them together, thus producing the creaking and not unmusical sound, known as the cricket's "chirp." The male alone, we are told, is the musician. The chirping is bis persistent call, or serenade, to bis mate bis "love song." The habits of the different species of crickets differ materially. The majority appear to be solitary and remain quiet during the daytime to come forth at night; but there are others that are social, delighting to live In crowds, and some that love the daylight as well as their night brethren love darkness. Home live under stones or In boles in the ground, some Iu the crannies and crevices of buildings, while stilt others dwell among the leaves and in the crevices of plants aud trees. They feed upon both animal and vegetable matter; they will eat other insects when they can overpower them. Ho well do they love grass, vegetables and fruit that, when they are very numerous, injury is frequently done to the crops on which they forage. In the West Indies there Is a kind of mole-cricket that often does great damage to the plantations of sugar-cane. Crickets usually deposit their eggs In the groumL The female is provided with a spear-like piercer with which she makes a bole in the ground, aud in the hole she places her eggs. They are generally deposited in the autumn, but do not batch unti the following summer. The white-climbing cricket, however, it an exception to this general rule, for the female of this species punctures the stems of plant and deposits two eggs in each perforation. These, when hutched, come forth and bide themselves in the crevices and among the leaves and flowers and constitute, indeed, the species that dwell upon the plants, shrubs aud trees. The mole-crickets are quite a remarkable species both on account ot their burrowing qualities and of the peculiarity of the nests they construct for the reception of their eggs. While their other legs are ot the same form, though of greater strength than those of the common cricket, their fore-legs differ in being very broad as well as remarkably strong; they use these in burrowing and also in tearing apart or cutting through the roots ot such plants an come in their way. The mole-cricket is very combative, and the established rule In Its contests seems to be that the victor shall immediately devour tut vanquished. The female of the mole-cricket when preparing her nest makes a subterranean cell about the size of a hen's egg with an intricate system of winding passages around and connected with it; in this she deposits from one hundred to four hundred eggs. The young of the cricket family are very similar In form to the grown insect, the chief difference being their lack ot wings. When larvie they are quite wingless, but as they advance to the pupa state the rudiments of wings are visible, and also little scale-like projections which will In time, become wing-covers. The pupte are quite active, running about freely, eating ravenously, aud growing witb great rapidity. ' The young develop through a series of moultings. As they outgrow one skin, that Is cast oft and another appears in Its place. This process is repeated six times; with the sixth or last moulting they are fully accoutred crickets, having then all their members, and, except a few kinds which remain wingless, being then endowed with fully developed wings. - The musical call of the different species varies In strength or loudness. The call of the field-cricket is louder than that of the house-cricket. In Sicily, it is said, there is a species (Oryllua megarephalu) which chirp so noisily that they may be beard a mile distant. The bouse-cricket (Gryllui dometttkug) Is the cricket with which we are most familiar. Its apparent liking for the lire, and the sound of its voice about the hearth, has caused it to be especially Associated with the thought of the evening domestic comfort and home pleasures, and so to the majority of people its familiar "c-r-e-e-k" is a cheerful, heart-warming sound. ' There are still a few to whom its voice-as It Is familiarly called conies as a harbinger of good or Ill-fortune; by some it is considered as a living barometer, foretelling changes in the weather; and there are still a few, so I have read, to whom the sound of its chirp indicates the return of departed spirits, which, in the form of crickets, have returned to sit awhile in their own old chimney corners; to any who would wantonly try to drive them thence, misfortune is sure, so they say, to come. The Teeth of Itakers. Borne singular statements have been made In the Ihutthr. MunnUchrift concerning the effect produced by different trades and industrial occupations nton the general health. Among these ' facts ar those contributed by Prof. Hesse, of Leip-sic, who points out the deplorable condition of the teeth of bakers, and who also asserts that be is frequently able to indicate the occupation of persons by the condition of their teeth. In the case ot bakers the caries is":oft and rapidly progressive; the principal parts attacked are the labial and buccal surfaces of the teeth, commencing at the cervix and rapidly extending to the grinding surface the ap-proximal surface not seeming to be attacked more than in other trades. Prof. Hesse believes tbat the disease is owing to the inhalation of flour dust, the caries being caused by the action of an acid which ts formed in the presence of fermentable farbohydrates.
