The report of Commissioner of Pensions Lochren for the fiscal year 'ending .Tune 30, 1894, has been submitted to the secretary of the interior and the following, abstract has ^ feeen given out for publication: The ? r -number of pensionerson the rolls June ,30, 1893 was 966,012; during the year 39,085 new pensioners were added to the rolls, 37,951 were dropped for death , and other causes, and 2,398' previously dropped were restored to the rolls. The number of pensioners upon the rolls of June 20,1894, was 969,544. The number of pension certificates issued during the year was 80,213 and 132,873 g, ; ,, claims of all classes were rejected. On 96 » July 1,1894, there were undisposed of ; ^ and in different stages of preparation 11 and advancement claims for pensions and for increase to the number of 619 •027, of which 287,209claims, originals, , widows and dependents, are on, behalf ^ of persons not already on the rolls. I These claims, save some recently, filed, &-* ,ba ve been examined more 'that'' once 9 3£?j2il nd Peking i n essential ey idence . < Jhey arVflfe same cases that have M comedown through the past years. ^', , The fact is referred to that under p. 1 ,?: the laws the allowance decreased from *\' 50,177 in 1876 to 9,977 ten years later. >n The arrears act brought in a large » number of new claims, increasing the •allowances, and the disability act of |V June 27,1890, caused 363,797 claims to filed the next year. As most of £i, these claims were meritorious and ?; simple as to proof under that law and J, tinder order 164, which went beyond «the law and rated disabilities as of ^'service origin, the work was easy and gan expert examiner could glance over *••+•*•> papers and allow fifty or more in a CT.-/7* •, Most of the force of special ex- gaminers were called in and put at this iSS^K^P^cult cases and such as were lacking in proof, or suspicious in re- Aspect to merit, or requiring special ex- ttsmlnatlon were passed over and now ^constitute a large part of the cases pS omin £ U P f or adjudication. New ^claims of all kinds have fallen off from |363,797 in 1891 to 40,148 in 1894, the jgfact being that original claims forpen- gsions under existing laws are substan- gtially akin and the bulk of new claims K r '? Jfor ' iDcrease . or for widows and dependents. The old cases on which ; of the work is expended are, The twine factory , 3 one of the largest in the world. The Wilson bill made a big reduction In the free raw material necessary for the making of twine, and binding twine was placed on the free list. That, however, does not discourage'the Deering people. Give our manufactories free raw material and they can compete with the world. Mr.Dolliver, however, •oted to keep the McKinley tax on .wine that, the cordage trust might eap'a good profit at the expense of he consumers, the farmers. The democratic party enacted the nly legislation that has been enacted n the interest of the masses for the ast thirty years. Its legislation will ive the masses the necessaries of life heaper than they have been getting hem. And at the same time it stimulates manufacturing industries. Even now the whole country feels the effect of free raw materials. Every manufactory in the country is running at its fullest capacity, and the country never saw a more prosperous time than the present. And besides this the income tax that was passed by the democratic party and opposed by the whole republican party, is designed to make the wealthy pay "their share for the support of the government. Will the masses appreciated? The classes will endeavor to punish the democratic party for this legislation. 'And unless it is sustained and endorsed by the masses thu repeal of the income tax will be the natural result. The masses should not allow the bug-bear of hard times, which were brought oh by republican legislation, to blind them t their oreal interests. It is from the Democratic party only that legislation for the masses can be expected.

It has not the pleasure of an acquaintance with the bride, but knows from what is said of her by all all who know her, that she is worthy of her husband, and it congratulates him on winning so estimable a life companion. It congratulates the bride on obtaining for a husband a man of high intellectual ability, natural and acquired, of high ideas of honesty and morality, and whose private as well as public life has always been above reproach. The COURIER knows that It speaks the sentiments of the whole community in w Mr. and Mrs. Ingham lonir and lives. h The Des Moines Kegister said of the union: "The wedding was a quiet one, but very pretty and well arranged.

One of the most exquisite gifts came from Mr. Mrs. J. i-l. Windsor; a fine Dresden clock. The out of town guests were the Inghams of Algona, and Mr. andMrs. John A.

We have made no inquires but we suppose our Estherville merchants 'are doing as well. In Chicago granulated sugar retails at 22 pounds for one dollar. Before the democratic tariff bill went into operation 16 and 17 pounds was the most ttiat could be had for one dollar. Under the democratic tariff law the government is receiving annually $60,000,000 in revenue from the the tariff on raw sugar and by reducing tax on refined sugar'the people are able to get one and two pounds more for one dollar than they could when the republican law wasin force, and under the republican tariff the people were taxed on woolens and other necessary articles for to make up a fund of $15 000,000 annually to pay the sugar planters of Louisiana. Cannot the people see the wisdom of the democratic measure and its superiority over the McKinley law. Three suits have been commenced at Sioux City by the county against ex-Treasurer W. A. Kifer to recover $20,000 on each of three official bonds which he gave during his term as county treasurer. It is claimed that he was in the habit of drawing interest on the funds in his hands and appropriating It to his own use, also that he kept all the fees paid into his office for himself. He is entitled under the statute, it is alleged, to only $1,500 of these fees, all the rest going to the county. Kifer's bondsmen are made f ^ ^« v</ iiij^o .mu uil JiUWd.

The bride wore a plain white silk without train, trimmed with the chiffron and lace. She was attended by Miss Hattie Kirkham and the best man was Fred Ingham, of Omaha, younger brother of Mr. Harvey Ingham. The ceremony was not long, and the persons most concerned acquitted themselves with simple grace and earnestness that was more than usually impressive. When it was over the relatives and friends present, nearly air of whom had known one or the other of the couple just wedded all their lives, expressed as well as a few words could do at su , cn a time, how pleased they were by what had just occurred. .

The A Happy Union. At six o'clock on Wednesday evening of this week, at the residence of the bride's parents the ceremony was performed which united in wedlock- Mr. Edgar B. Butler and Miss Linette E. Wilson. The ceremony was per- torm,ed by Eev. H. B. Butler, father of the groom, and was witnessed by the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. J.. Wilson, Mr. Frank Butler, Mrs. VanVechten of Cedar Rapids, and Mrs. Pinkney of Chicago. The wedded couple are among the very .best people of this community, and their union gives pleasure to all their acquaintances. Mr. Butler is a man of broad learning, being a graduate of the State University, and he has established a reputation for straight and honorable dealing that gives him an enviable standing in the community. Mrs. Butler, the bride,.and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J., Wilson, is a lady..,of,.,fine and varied accomplishments, arid is a favorite with all her acquaintances.

He was a man that weighed in the neighborhood of 200 pounds, and as one of the animals was being dehorned he made a lunge and knocked Mr. Smith down. He was struck with 'such force that a blood vessel in the region of the heart was ruptured, and he died in about fifteen minutes afterwards, and before he could be taken into the house. The blood ran out of his mouth and ears in streams. Mr. Smith was one of Humboldt county's prosperous farmers. He located on his home place near LuVerne about fifteen years ago, and by hard work and economy had accumulated considerable property.
