Court has been occupied most of the past week with the Cady divorce case This is the case where Mrs. Cady had her husband fined $26 at LuVerne foi whipping her, and the next day Cady had her brought before the commissioners of insanity in Algona. As soon as she was released she began suit foi divorce. The contest has been over some $8,000 of property nnd a bright little boy eight years of age, as aside from possession of these both are willing to forego domestic bliss of the kind they have been enjoying. The testimony brought to light the hard, rough, coarse life some people live. .An impudent, unruly stepdaughter, a high- tempered, close-fisted man, a high- strung, excitable woman, were the parties most in evidence. It is well sometimes that the curtain is lifted from such scenes in order that the other half of the world may see how this half lives. Judge Quarton gave Mrs. Cady a divorce, the custody of the boy, and $2,600. OTHER DOMESTIC INFELICITY. Chas. H. Wooster, the barber in Wilbur's shop, is granted a divorce from Mae Wooster, desertion. Pierson C. C. Phillips is granted a divorce from Mary E. Phillips, desertion. Chas. J. Birkhofer is granted a divorce from Florence M. Birkhofer, desertion. Clara Stephens is granted a divorce from Daniel Stephens. The following divorce cases go oyer till the fall terra: H. F. Randall vs. Ollie Randall, and Robt. Pringle vs. Alice Pringle. FOR THE FALL TERM. A number of interesting and important cases go over, but will be for trial at the next term. B. W. Haggard's insurance suit for $500 was continued yesterday. Ike Harrison of LuVerne bought a reaper of a local agent and paid him. The Buckeye company says the agent had no authority to sell, and has seized the machine. The agent is financially unable to return the money, and Ike is after the company. The suit against A. A. Brunson, H. Hoxie, and J. J. Ryan on an alleged bond given to assist Lund to secure money from Smith & Vollmer of Davenport. Bridget Gorman vs. M. & St. L. Ry. This is that old case where tha brakeman was killed at LuVerne many years ago. It was sent back by the supreme court for a new trial. The case against M. O'Rourke down in Tama arising out of the failure of a furniture factory. The . court held against O'Rourke for $467, and motion is made for a new trial. Six Russ cases are to be tried. These close up the Lund land deals. Mrs. Jane Gallion sues the Detroit life insurance company for $2,000 insurance on her son, who was shot by the bank robbers. The company refuses to pay alleging that the policy bad lapsed. Chas. Bronson's suit against the Milwaukee for $10,000 damages on account of the loss of his leg. .The suits of John Connors and A. F. urren against the Northwestern for damages by fire near LuVerne. August Dinger's suit against R. N. Bruer for $15,000 damages. CRIMINAL MATTERS. The grand jury indicted Wm. Witte ;he Seneca forger. Witte is out under S500 bonds furnished by his father. Nick Mouse!, the Germania beer seller, pleaded guilty and was fined $300 ind costs. This is the second time he HIS been fined. Jake Goedertz, the Sexton patent nedioine peddler, is going to fight. Eis lawyer is Hemingway of Hampton and he will insist that the Iowa statute is void and unconstitutional, Joe Youst, who is under arrest for the same offense, will doubtless abide by the outcome of his trial. COURT NOTES. One of the cases in this court is between F. M. Taylor and Peter Purvis over an alley between their home properties. It will probably be settled. Link Singleton has deeded to A. D. larke the piece of land he was sued for, and the case is dropped. The fight is still continued to set aside the independent school district of Germania. It was in this case that 3upt. Reed set aside the appeal because it was filed a day late. The township of Ledyard wants the Germania district revised. The county is suing several Letts' Creek farmers on small notes they gave to have a county ditch put in. They say the ditch was not put in according to agreement and refuse to pay. Three suits against the men who signed C. L. Lund's notarial bonds are still on the docket. Twelve Frink cases are awaiting the supreme court decision on the claim of Carson, PJrie, Scott & Co. of Chicago. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. Dr. Morse is home from Des Moines. Rev. Day was in Des Moines and Chicago last week. Mrs. Thos. F. Cooke went to Des Moiuee yesterday to visit her husband. Rev. Dorward is back from Napa, Gal., to stay. He is likely to locate at Corwith, where he preaches next Sunday. He has had all of California that he wants. Miss MaWe Burton, a er of Dr. L. K. Garfield, is out from Tacoma for a visit. She was in Algona some years ago and is pleasantly remembered. Mr. and Mrs. Dutton are back from California in their Cresco home. They are in vigorous health. Mr. Dutton says he would not go to the coast to live. J. W. Hitiohon starts for the old country the last of the week, He will sail May 21. He will be gone two months and visit everywhere but in Spain. He was born in Ireland, but left when two years of • age and consequently remembers but little of t his home. He has no relatives now in 1 Ireland, but wants to see the country. He will run up against the Scotch while gone, embrace his English cousins, and out of respect for his German fellow democrats go over and look at a glass of lager on the Rhine., If no Spaniard sees him he will come back in time for the fall campaign. ME. DOLLIVER'S SPEECH. Congressman Dolllver made a great speech Thursday. He was second on the republican side to defend the republican revenue bill to provide for the war. Chairman Dingley opened, Bailey of Texas followed for the democrats. Dolliyor was third. Walter Wellman In the Chicago Times-Herald reports: " When Representative Dolliver arose to speak many republicans who had slipped out of the hall hastened back to their seats. Among them was Chairman Dingley, who had been out for luncheon. Mr. Dolliver had a back seat near the center aisle, and the house presented a curious spectacle, with all backs turned to the presiding officer. The lowan commanded the close attention of democrats as well as republicans, and there were no more intent listeners than Mr. Bailey and Mr. Dingley. The eloquent lowan Hlled the chamber with rolling periods that came in full flood, and he scored a memorable oratorical triumph." At the close of his speech the applause .asted for minutes, and members fol- ,owod him to the cloak rooms toexpress liongratulatious. From the various reports in the daily papers we clip the following pararaphs: , " When the United States decided on a policy involving the immediate prospect of war it became the duty of con- ?ress to set about at once to provide ;he money needed to carry on the mili- ;ary and naval operations. There are ;wo ways in which a government can support a large expense of this charac- ;er, either by collecting it in cash or sorrowing it on credit. The committee on ways and means has fully considered both methods, and we have made up our minds that the government ought to pay as it goes as far as it can, leaving as little of the burden of our intervention in Cuba to the uture as possible. "For the first time in the history of ihe world a nation has of its own voli- ;ion thrown away every prospect of ag- randizement and based its action on disinterested grounds, so that what we may minister to present satisfaction and the moral comfort of the communi- ;y concerns posterity vastly less than t does us. "It is we who sympathize; it is we who have been moved by the inspiration of compassion and charity, and it s hardly creditable that we are going ;o belie the proceeding by deliberately contriving that the next generation shall bear the expense of it. Therefore we have felt that we ought to pay as we go, as far as consistent with the mposition of a reasonable burden of war taxes. " Men have risen in this debate to ihreaten those of us responsible for the ntroduction of this measure with the penalties of public indignation and of lopular resentment to follow the enactment of Ihis law. I do not believe a word of it. If there is a case in the listory of the world where a situation amounting to a declaration of war was ,he direct result of the wish and pur- )ose of the people themselves, it is in ;his case. ''This country knew something in advance of the expenses of war. All of these things the American people have jondered in their hearts. While that nighty tide of public opinion was rls- ng the nation was lifted on billows of enthusiasm, which no partisan leadership could either suppress or control, [t cannot be said that the president of ;he United States plunged this country nto war. If he had heedlessly put in jerll the welfare of a country like this, nsiead of being entitled, as he is, to ;he respect and confidence of the world, t would be better that a millstone be langed about his neck and that be be drowned in the depth of the sea. ' History will acquit the president of such an act of hostility to the public welfare. Instead of having tried to in- lame the public opinion of the country, he tried to moderate and direct it. Instead of throwing away the prospects of a peaceful settlement he allied himself with every honorable •influence in 'avor of such solution of the perilous juestions involved. He has been ma- igned by his enemies and misunderstood by his friends, because he has had ;he wisdom to inquire and the prudence ;o prepare—a statesmanship which .ooks before and after. "I do not predict the size and cost of the undertaking in which we are embarked, but my conviction is that we will gain all we lose and infinitely more. Two things we have already gained—one is the outspoken sympathy of the great English speaking race of which we are a part; another is a larger sense of the unity of the American people, a unity that has already killed the spirit of sectionalism, taken the poison out of partisan strife and brought in a better era of American patriotism. Nor do I think our people will ever regret the part they have assumed." AMERICA'S WONDERFUL FORBEARANCE. " We have not coveted Spain's tory. We have not obstructed b§ p ministration.
