From the Springfield Tlmes.

The Deutschland, a large Ger


man submarine, arrived in the
Baltimore harbor this week laden
with merchandise, having success
fully run the blockade and landed
safely on oar shores. This puts a
new phase on the shipping question
If the boat is unarmed, as it is
claimed, it will be olassed.M a
merehant vessel, and will be enti
tled to all of the rights of a trading
vessel. It is supposed that the
vessel will return with a cargo of
war munitions, and so far we have
heard no objections raised to this
country selling the cargo.
In nearly every oontest
arises between employers and em
ployes the general public is the
aufferer."A few months ago the an
thracite coal miners demanded a
raise in wages and it was granted.
The raise, it is estimated, will not
exceed 25c per ton and possibly
less than that, yet the wholesale
dealers are putting on about $1.00
a ton.
The railroad employe* are de
manding an increase whioh the
railroad officials estimate will in
crease their expense of operation
about $100,000,000.00. If it is
granted, of course, traffic rates will
be raised to cover it, and in doing
so the increase would doubtless be
double that amount, while the
public payB the bill.
The public has no way of know
ing whether tbey are being held up
in these deals or not, as they have
no voice in the adjustments. There
certainly ought to be some official
supervision over these transactions
that the iutereBt of the public might
be looked after. It might bn well
to enlarge the jurisdiction of the
interstate commerce commission
so as to cover wages as well as
rates charged by the railroad compilnieB.

ment of the Utica Times and will as
sume the cares of his new position on
Monday next.
Harry Beard, of (Scotland, who en
listed in Company "M" yesterday, is
now in the city jail facing a petit lar
ceny charge for stealing a watch from
the family of August Kraft. The fam
ily is moving to Tripp and Beard is apcused of stealing the watch at the house
and selling it to a hobo near Lesterville.
The watch has been located. Beard
offered the watch to local jewelers and
lie is square up against a solid case to
be disposed of this afternoon. Beard is
not likely to see any military duty as a
member of Company "M."
Thirty-two years ago there resided in
Yankton a man by tbe name ot J. P.
Waguer, who manufactured organs and
brooms. iVlr. Waguer raised bis own
broom corn ami to facilitate tbe work
of plauting arranged with Mr. L. Karr
to give bira an organ for a broom corn
planter which Mr. Karr manufactured.
The organ which Mr. Karr secured was
J^he first one put out by Mr. Wagner
andprobably the first ever made in this
part of the country. It has always re
mained in the Karr family and a few
weeks ago its existence came to the at
tention of Hon. Doane Robinson , state
historian. Mr. HobinBon called upon
Eugene Karr, saw the instrument and
promptly negotiated for securing it for
the department of history at Pierre.
Tbe organ WHS packed today and goes
forth to Mr. Robinson on Monday to
become a part of the state's historical
collection.

Mrs. J . P. Serr returned Monday to
Scotland, having visited a week at the
home of Mrs. J. W. Wallace, in our
city.
We are Informed that J. W. Turner
has decided to leave Springfield and
move to Sioux City where he will en
gage in business. He has closed his
office east of Geo. W. Snow's, having
moved the flxtures into the rear of the
First National Bank. We are sorry to
see such prominent old residents as Mr.
and Mrs. Turner leave Springfield; it
will not seem the same place without
them; they have lived here so long that
they have come to be regarded as per
manent fixtures.
Mr. Turner has
given up the plan of re-establishing the
electric light plaut and the mill has
been closed on account of the damage
by fire. We feel that Springfield is los

ness men and au estimable family.
