Clarke oil the Hancock x County Case-Miscellany* Judge Quarton has decided that pool is not billiards, The case arose at Emmetsburg and will be appealed to the supreme court. It seems that a lot of boys were caught playing 15-ball pool at Cylinder. The proprietors of the shop were charged with the crime of allowing minors to play at the game of billiards. It was the contention of the state that billiards and pool are the same, but the defenseclaimed that they were two separate and distinct games, and because there was no statute in Iowa prohibiting minors to play pool, the defendants had committed no offense. When the state introduced all its evidence and rested, Attorney O'Connor made a motion for the court to direct the jury to return a verdict of not guilty. The motion was sustained by the court, Judge Quarton holding /hat billiards and pool are different rames and that the defendants were not juilty under the evidence. The state will probably appeal to the supreme lourt. _ Geo. E. Clarke's Opinion, Geo. E. Clarke is out in a long legal opinion on the Hancock county seat case. The county seat is at present at oncord, an old village a mile out of Garner. Garner proposes to extend its imits to take in Concord and then to move the court house without the formality of a vote. The question is whether such, u method of relocation would be legal. The Garnerites have opinions from Judge Kinne, Judge C, ~ Cole, Attorney General Remley, Judge Carr, Mr. Clarke and other prominent lawyers of the state, all of whom say that the court house can be Drought to town by that method. arner has now deposited $30,000 in cash to build a new court house if the county will beat Britt. Garner is on the east side of the county, Britt in the middle. But the court house has always been on the east side, which gives Garner a sort of advantage. A. Little About Box Rents. Postmaster Clark of Buthven wrote n to protest against the big raise in postofflce box rents at his office. The etter he received from the first assistant postmaster general was similar to ihat received at other offices. Thelat- ;er official wrote: "In reply to your etter of late date I have to say that the •enting of postofflce boxes is not a mere 'ormaiity, but a business transaction in which the department proposes to give advantages superior to those of general delivery (which is free) for a fair consideration, but not for nothing. Box 'ents have been collected at your post- office at merely nominal rates, which in comparison with rates at other post- offices in your state are out of proportion and unreasonable.., At some of the smaller offices the patrons have for years paid 25 cents per quarter for call 30x68 and 50 to 75 cents per quarter for look boxes without complaint. Most postofflces of the same grade return a much larger revenue per quarter from box rents than is obtained from your postofflce. You are, therefore,' required to collect box rents at your post- office from April J, 1898, at the rate fixed by the department, of which you have been advised,'* E. G. Bowyer's Brother. The State Register noted editorially last week: " In the list of Iowa men in the navy we should place Marshall Bowyer of Mount Pleasant. He entered the naval academy in 1870 and was graduated in 1874. He has been in the service ever since. His present rank is that of lieutenant. He was on the Maine as an,ordnance officer. Just before the ship sailed for Havana he was transferred to the navy department and detailed to duty in Washington, where he is now employed in the ordnance department. The man who took his place on the Maine has never been heard from. Lieutenant Bowyer is a nephew of Dr. J, M. Pugh of this city." Lieut, Bowyer is brother of JD. G, Bowyer of Algona, and Dr. Pugh is uncle of P. W. Pugh of Algona.
