Vhitny, candidate fur district attorney addressed a smiill-ki.ed audience at the opera house in Independence Tuesday eyening. Posters had been up for several days announcing the judge's coming, nod inviting J. II. McXary the r'iublicnn cnudiduie, to he present and take part in the discussion if it muted his pleanure. Judue Whitney confined his re marks principally to his ideas of the duties of a district attorney and courts of justice. He endeav ored to steer clear of politics, claim ing that the portion of district at torney was really not a political one, but a position that should be looked upon as a business propo sition. The 1150 paid for the ser vices of a district attorney and bis demliee in this district, the judge thinks is ample remuneration without counties Using obliged to hire a special attorney. Should he be elected, Mr. Whitney promised t pay for any epcial legal service that it might become necessary to employ. Judtfe Whitney put himself to record as opposed to the law abol ishing in part the grand jury and stated that, should he he district attorney and the presiding judge should fail to make an order con- CIRCUIT COURT.

Secretary of State Dunbar has made out the form of the oflicial ballot for the state and Congres sional district election and sent the same to the several county clerks. Th names of the candidates are arranged in alphabetical order as required by law. As the republi. can state and Congressional cnndl dates are certain of success, the arrangement is of minor import ance, but is often of considerable consequence in county contests where the eleotion is close.

II. Hewitt. Many voters did not understand that they should vote for two. In , consequence of this mistake Judge Hewitt was defeated.

Governor Chamberlain has grant ed a full pardon to Harlow C. Mes inger. who was serving a 15-year term in the penitentiary from Jack son county for manslaughter. He was received in 1902, and has been model prisoner. The governor assigns Beveral reasons for his par don, one being that when the court nstructed the jury it committed an error, which was afterward reversed in a similar case from the same court. Another reason is mat nies singer acted in self-defense, and has been sufficiently punished for his crime. Hal- City of Dallas vs. Mary E leek et al; mandate entered. The cases of Laura Adkins vs. the city of Monmouth, damages, and of J. L. Guthrie vs. the Coast Range Lumber Co. were tried be fore juries. In the Adkina cute the jury, after several hours deliberation, found for plaintiff in the sum of $2112.91 This had come to be a well-known case. Mrs. Adkins sued the city of Monmouth to recover damages for injuries sustained from a fall which she alleged was due to a defective sidewalk. The case was tried out before a jury once before and the plaintiff awarded ISOO damages. Upon motion of defendent the ver dict was set aside and a new trial ordered. Ne exceptions were saved by attorneys for the city in the last trial which precludes an appeal to the supreme court. An effort might be made, however, to have the ver dict set aside aa in the former trial. The Appearance of Main Street Being- Transformed by New Buildings, Painting; and Overhauling.
