BLAN#S- THE NEWS OF THE WEEK A member of the Omaha city couiici has returned tno annual pass given him by the street railway company and the enterprising newspapers of the city have reporters shadowing him day anc night in order to get a scoop on his translation. The Atlantic Telegraph suggests thai Senator Bolter bo paid an additiona $5,000 salary upon condition that ho makes no more speeches during this session. It would be a great saving to the state, but the senator from the Thirty-fourth district will never consent. Ho would reply in the language of the gentleman from Texas, since grown classic, " What in am I hero for?" The next annual tournament of the Iowa Firemen's association will bo held at Atlantic on Juno 7, 8, 9, and 10,1892. Prizes amounting to $2,500 will bo given to those competing in the several contests. The Northwestern Miller reports the output of Minneapolis flouring mills fot the year 1891, at 7,877,900 barrels, exceeding the banner year, 1888, by ovei 800,000 barrels. Tim largo foreign demand has been a special feature of the increase. The new year's exports are far in advance of those of any previous season. Carroll, Iowa, is incorporating as a city of the second class, and a facetious newspaper remarks that Carroll is suf- iicently wicked to need a second birth. Recently a letter arrived at the post- office at Carroll addressed to a young lady in the care of a man well known in that community, the latter having the letter in his possession with the seal broken, by himself or someone connected with him, and refused to give the letter to the party addressed, intimating that "he needed it in his business." He also made public some of the contents of the letter. The department was apprised of his infraction of the postal laws, and last Saturday the postmaster received advice to the effect that when the letter was delivered as directed in care of the party referred to, all obligations of the department ceased, and "the rights of the real proprietor of the letter are under the guardianship of local law, not that of the United States." The Herald wouldn't be surprised if the fellow would get into a scrape over it yet. The attorneys for E. H. Litch field, who holds the navigation company's title to the river land, have commenced serving original notices in ejectment proceedings against the settlers still on their lands. Writs of ejectment will be secured at the February term of the district court and will bo served at once. It is known that some of the settlers, who insist that they are being robbed of their homes, will resist. In this case forcible eviction will be resorted to. It occurred in the Savery lobby last week, says the Capital: " This is Senator Bolter, is it not?" "It is," replied the dignified senator !rom Harrison county, as a look of pa- lient endurance overspread his face. My name is Mr. , from Pottawattamie county." " What office did you say?" " What office* 1 " repeated the aston- .shed gentleman. " Yes, what position are you after?" "What position?" ejaculated the man still more startled, "I am not after a ob." " What!" gasped the senator, " not after a job? Thank God," and the senator shook hands warmly with Mr. is he dragged him up to the cigar case, throwing a democratic quarter on the case, murmuring, as if he couldn't believe it, "This knocks the zephyrs out of me. Why, do you know that not less than 100 men have introduced themselves to me in the last two days, and you're the first one that didn't want a job. Have another Havana." A match between Nancy Hanks and Sunol is now the talk of the matoh- nakers. Both owners, it is said, have expressed a willingness to trot for glory and give the gate receipts to some char'.table institution. Report of the college for the blind 'or December shows an average of 181 >upils. .. All in this section who have been interested in the benevolent enterprise Degun in Dickinson county by Daniel Pierce will regret to learn that as yet nothing has come of it. Mr. Pierce announced his intention of founding an usyluin for orphans. The Spirit Lake Beacon says; Extensive farming operations have been carried pn, and » Ut- .le building has been done, but up to ^e present tjme no definite action iSWjL the, aocampU^pwint of the 1$ &hoo<J that Mr. Pierce has not abandoned his humanitarian project. The town of Superior is seriously hampered by the present situation. All the roads across this body of land have been vacated. Considerable trade has there been turned to other points, and many who do business there are greatly inconvenienced. If it had been supposed that it was the intention to throw these four sections together and operate the land as one vast farm, practically by nonresidents, it is hardly probable that all the land embraced in these limits could have been secured by Mr. Pierce. The land is now worth probably $25,000 tnoro than Mr. Pierce paid for it. Odebolt Chronicle: When Chris. Muxen returned from Chattanooga ho brought with him a relic from the battle Held oT Chickamauga in tho shapo of a log in which was imbedded a cannon ball. Not long ago Jas. N. Miller, late editor of tho Sao Sun and a veteran of tho late war, was in Odebolt,, and tho relic attracted his attention. After looking at it a few moments ho evinced a great emotion, and as soon as his feelings permitted him to speak ho ox- claimed that ho recognized in the log tho tree behind which he hid during tho battle. When tho ball struck tho tree ho fainted, sustaining a shock that eventuality put him on the pension roll. Tho other day ho purchased the relic, paying $12.50 for it, There was a decided sensation in tho district court room at Otturawaonoday last week when Judge Dcwey ordered Sheriff Mclntyre to arrest W. S. Clark, a trial juror, and place him in the county jail. It was just as the court wan about to convene for the afternoon session and the trial jurors had just taken thoir places in the jury box for tho purpose of hearing tho closing arguments in the Most-Blake rape case, which has been on trial all week. Judge Dewey noticed one of the jurors, W. S Clark, in a condition unfit for a juryman and at once plied him with questions and found that he was drunk. Tho judge at once ordered the sheriff to place Clark in the jail and retnrn him at 9 o'clock next morning. The rest of the jury was then discharged and tho case allowed to go over till the next day. Tho event created a great sensation in the court room, as it is the first time in the history of the district court there that a jury has been discharged and a case continued because of a drunken juryman in the box. There is a legal question involved in the matter, and it is no more or less than whether or not Blake has been placed in jeopardy and whether he can again be tried on this charge. Clark, the cause of all the commotion, is a resident of Ottumwa and is said to have been in a state of intoxication all day. The Andrews Opera company is in trouble. A St. Paul paper tells the story: After playing a long engagement in St, Paul the company went to Mankato to play one night, intending ;o return and sing one more week at St. Paul. It was not thought that the company would come back. Many of iho company remained in Minneapolis. The company has been traveling rather a rocky road with poor business and . a demand for salary from members of the company. There were several other persons, among them parties who lave been boarding members of the chorus, and the principal even demand some of the money that was supposed to lie concealed in the cotters of the Andrews. The money is not forthcoming. They are waiting but think ;he company will not return, Five mo'mbers of the company remained in the city. They say they had no salary "or seven weeks. A lively incident marked the departure of the company. A man named Penn, who had been Dlaying the double baas in the orches- ;ra, was ono of those who had money due and unpaid. He retained tho instrument as satisfaction, The treasurer of the company, J. C. McMillan, attempted to take the instrument from Penn. McMillan now wears a face that bears witness to tho efficacy of physical culture. J. J. Richardson of Davenport, member of the state democratic central committee, has gone east to try and secure the coming national democratic convention for Des Moines, Mr. Richardson, it is claimed, hastheaid of both Senators Gorman and Hill, who favor Des Moines on the ground that if any of the western cities which are now n'essing their claims—unless it be Indianapolis—are chosen, the local sentiment would be too strong in favor of tho nomination of Cleveland to be overcome, In Indianapolis, on the other land, they would ha veto COR tend with a ray boom. But in Des Monies the original sentiment would b,e jnpt and. overcome by the counter ^egjjnje^t ja avor of Gov. Boies, and thJB',1&i§y ; $j>g not afraid to meet.
