DOWN TOWN fthe Webster City Public Scales Prom Ise to Keep in Evidence Years—A flown flight, SheHff Schmalle Tells About His Ex pfcrietlce with the Ledyatd Firebug —Other Northwest News. The Webster* City scale case promise to achieve a permanence equalled ohlji by Jarndyce and Jarndyce. Elgli years ago Banker Millei? was fighting the issue in the legislature. . From there it was adjourned to the courts and -now it apparently hns severa branches, one of which goes to the su preme court on appeal from a recenl decision of Judge Birdsalt. The scale!! in question Were located In front of Mr Miller's handsome home. He objectet to them because they were too near The rest of the opposition object to them because they are too far away He tried to get the legislature to re sctnd the whole compulsory weighing statute on the ground that it is an un constitutional interference with person al liberty. The law is that a city ma; adopt city scales and everybody who sells in the city must weigh on them But the legislature failed to act.^ Now it appears no one objects to the city scales in theory, but many do object to having them on one side of the busi ness center, so that weighers from the west have to drive across the city to the scales and then back again to mar ket. The..present'.controversy arises out of an injunction ngaihst the city. This Judge Birdsall did not sustain, and it will be heard by the supreme court. In the meantime an obstreperous citizen named Owens has refused to weigh on the scales and has, we believe, been several times arrested, and these matters stand in abeyance Until the injunction is disposed of. Back ol all the disturbance is an old "up" and "down" town squabble, the ".up getting the scales, which they propose to hold. The Last of llendlg. Scheriff Schmalle tells the Signal different story about his misfortune at Anamosa while delivering the firebug caught at Ledyard. He says that they were on their return after visiting the house to engage board for Bendig's daughter, Bendig walking ahead. They came to a place where the walk was some six or seven feet high and Al suggested that they had better. take to the street. At this Bendig suddenly burned upon Al and attempted to strike him in the face with his' handcuffs. Al was ready for a scrap and threw Bendig to the walk. In the fall his feet slipped and to:save himself from falling on his head AMiad to let go of Bendig and landed upon his feet on the rocks and Bendig was immediately on the run. Al fired one shot which wasafter- wards found to have passed through Bendig's coat sleeve, and gave chase. Ee was close on to Bendig when his feet, which had been badly bruised in the fall, gave out and he was forced to Btop and call for help, while Bendig es- japed into the timber along the river. The next morning Bendig was brought in as related in the news item. The Signal adds: Scbmalle's feet were badly used up and forced him to keep housed up for ten days. Bendig proves to be a tough one, having served a term of three years at Fort Madison for arson and five years at Anamosa for larceny. [f his record had been known to Judge Sherwin on the recent trial his sen tence would have been for the full five years. _ _ ' Saloon Troubles in Spe»cev. Judge Quarton on Tuesday granted an injunction restraining J. H, Lewis From selling intoxicating liquor at his present place of business in Spencer, and directed the sheriff to seize and destroy all liquor found there ^and to dispose of all fixtures used in conneo tlon with the saloon business and close the building securely for one year. A Good Joke to Imitate. A Blue Earth City man took a Pillsbury flour bag and had it filled with hpine made flour. His wife v thought that local flour was no erood, Now she says that/last bag of PUlsbqry's best beats any previous bag she has had, The husband don't dare tell her. the truth and has to keep his face straight while she talks about it.
