Avey has this week removed his harness shop and stock to the Bronson building on State street, Ills Celebrated California Case In the United Slates Supreme Court. It always pleases THE UPPER DBS MoiNES to chronicle the success of old Algonians. From the Washington, D. C. Post of Oct. 19, it clips the following report which will be read with interest: The celebrated land grant case of the United States against the Southern Pacific railroad company and several hundred other parties was finally decided by the United States supreme court yesterday, Justice Harlan giving the opinion. The case directly involved nearly a million acres of land and indirectly determines the title to upward of 3,000,000 acres. The lands, situated in the southern part of California, wore those granted by Congress in 1866 to aid in the construction of the Atlantic and Pacific railroad, which located its line of railroad from the Missouri river westward by Albuquerque, to the Pacific ocean at Ventura. This railroad not having been constructed the grant was forfeited by an act of Congress in 1886. The Southern Pacific railroad company and the other defendants claimed this land under a grant made by Congress in 1871, which overlapped the Atlantic and Pacific grant, and they further claimed that, as the Atlantic and Pacific grant was forfeited, the grant of 1871 attached to these lands. Nearly 100,000 acres of these lands were pat en ted to the Southern Pacific railroad and the balance of the lands, while no patented, have been held and claimec by that company for nearly a quarter ot a century. The government instituted this liti gallon to recover these lands about ten years ago, and for that purpose Mr. Jo seph H. Call was appointed a specia attorney for the United States, and he has had charge of the litigation from its commencement down to its final conclusion yesterday. The Southern Pacific company and the other defendants have been represented by emlnentcoun- sel, including Mr. Joseph H. Choate, James C. Cartel', and Charles H. Tweed of New York City, also by Judge E. L. Payson, J. Hubley Ashten of Washington; William F. Herrin, William Singer, jr., and Joseph G. Redding of San Francisco. This suit was brought in the United States Circuit Court for the Southern District of California, and a decision having been rendered there in favor of the government, an appeal was taken to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals, which court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court, and from that decision the case was carried by appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States, which court affirms the judgment of the courts below and establishes the rights of the United States to these lands. The judgment of the court is not only against the claim of the Southern .Pacific railroad to these admission to this choice -comradeship has been taken in. In practical proceedings and happy, helpfulassociation this newspaper organization has long been regarded as the best ever formed in the state, and the fourteenth meeting at Webster City gave promise of an indefinite career of usefulness.

The supreme court declares itself against this, and establishes the title of the gov ernment against the railroad and against the bond holders. The supreme court holds further that the prior suits brought by the United States against the Southern Pacific railroad company, reported in 146 Painter, Paper Hanger KALSOMINER, SIGN AND CARRIAGE PAINTER, Postal card orders will attention. U. S., which adjudged the title to be in the United States for certain lands in the forfeited Atlantic and Pacific grant, was a complete adjudication of the ques tions sought to be again opened and re viewed by the Southern Pacific rail road company in this case. And the court further held that the record in the former cases was admissi ble in evidence without being special pleaded by the United States, and tha it was hot only persuasive evidence o what was decided in the former case butthfttitwas conclusive of the ques tions there adjudged, which question are the same as those now sought to be raised by the Southern Pacific railroad company. The result of the decision is a com plete victory for the government an( for Mr. Call. The court remanded tQ the lowe court for decision the case of about 20( persons who had purchased part of th lands from the railroad company. Ttoe Upper Pes Molnee Editors.

One of the robbers is lying at lotel McNee in that town with two mllet wounds in his body, one in his ihest and one in the abdomen. The wo other men escaped. Posses are in )ursuit and agents have been notified ivitbin a radius of fifty miles but noth- ng has been heard of them. For two days the robbers were in this lity, and Saturday night they took a land car, which was standing by the section house, and made the trip to Blairsburg, which is nine miles east of here. The men gained entrance to the bank through the front door of the building, battering it in with sledge hammers, which they had taken from this city. While two were at work in the bank the third was stationed outside. A hole was drilled through the top of the outside safe, and to make their work sure they inserted dynamite enough to blow open a dozen safes. The great iron doors were hurled twenty feet, the safe was wrecked and the entire building was damaged. The plate glass windows were shattered. The noise of the explosion brought half the people of Blairsburg from their beds. The clock on the bank wall was wrenched to one side and it stopped at 3:02 Sunday morning, showing the exact time when the explosion took place. James Goners, an employe at the lairsburg creamery, was the first citi- en to arrive. When he saw the havoc bat had been wrought he uttered a yell nd retreated to the hotel across the treet. It was his cry that frightened he burglars. They had returned to he building through which they had ,ccess from a back window, and had irepared another charge of dynamite or the time locks on the interior of the ig safe. This they did not explode. ?hey hastily left the bank through the ear window, and as they were passing he northwest corner of the building he third man, who gives his name as Edward Gillicon, rushed around the northeast corner. Twice the fleeing burglars shot at him, each shot taking effect. A volley was fired by the bandits at the crowd which had rapidly gathered, but owing .0 the darkness their other shots did no harm. The two men escaped, taking with them cash and valuable papers amounting to about $9,000. No one in the crowd was armed and immediate pursuit was not made. Gillicon was carried to the hotel, where physicians probed his wounds. 3e is a young man about 26 years of age, fair complexion, and his hands five no evidence of toil. He was fairly well dressed. Efforts were made to have him tell the names of his associates, but he declared he did not know (hem. Theories are advanced as to why the robbers shot Gillican. One is that they mistook him for a citizen and the other is that as it was impossible for him to escape they thought to kill him to prevent any testimony he might offer against them. Gillicon says he never met the men until two days ago in Webster City, when they were drinking together and they gradually approached the subject of robbing the Blairsburg bank. He fell in with them and showed a willingness to assist. They explained that they had looked over the field and every detail of the One Hundred Dollars Is offered to any person who can duplicate the CIGAR FOR 5 CENTS.

To frighten Gillicon into a full confession threats were made of lynching but they proved of no avail. He stoutly maintained he did not even know the robbers' names. Sheriff Sinclair drove to Blairsburg before daylight. When he searched Gillicon's clothing he found a number of skeleton keys and other tools used by robbers. He had a number of gold watches, chain, etc., in his outside coat pockets. The state bank at Blairsburg had a capital stock of $60,000. W. P. Powers of Blaireburg is president, J. C.
