A gentleman pasted through DesMolnei hist week who knew Governor Bales In the long, long ago, before either he or the present governor hul made their home In the west. lie gave many Interesting rem' Inljcences of those early days to New York state, und among the things stated was one which will be news to many, If not news to a 1. It was tn regard to the governor's early politics he spake: "Horace Boles and I lived la the same town, and I knew him only as young men can know each other when drawn together In early life before the dew Is olT our con vktlons. Politics were hot In those days ou know It was the dawning of the day which ended In emancipation, and every body bad positive opinions that was half a man. I was always a freedom man and opposed to the extension of slavery. Boles was a Democrat of the most post tlva kind, add an apologist for the repeal of the Missouri compromise, and all that Infamous legislation which goaded the north Into. action. I heard that after he came to Iowa, I think It was In 1853, he tamed Republican, but when I knew him there was no Republicanism In htm Consequently I was not surprised when 1 heard he had gone back to his early love and become a Democrat again. I always liked Horace Bolei personally, bat thirty-five years ago I did not like his politics, and I don't bow." Aa Into laanranc. Mast. F. Wallace Abbott, M. D., of Taunton, Mass., yesterday handed In his card to Auditor of State Lyons, and desired aa Interview, It was granted and the medical man Introduced himself as the head man of the Mutual One Year Benefit Order. He announced that he cane to denounce the position which Is being taken by the auditor In regard to the Illegality of the business his order Is doing or trying to do In the slate. This company, It will be remembered, Is the one which began operation In Council Bluffs a short time ago. They do a unique and peculiar kind of buttness. As explained by Auditor Lyons It consists of a kind of one year endowment association. The members go Into the society and at the end of the year their stock matures, aid they are supposed to pull out $100. The company claims that this 8100 Is often secured by a payment of 810 or $30, and that their scheme Is a gold mine for the members. This seems to be the plan of the society. Its method Is to call Itself a secret benevolent order, and people are nominally Initiated Into It. Thus calling Itself a fraternal order, It claims to be wlthont the restricting and supervision of the Insurance statutes, by the provisions, which provides that fraternal societies shall not be compelled to comply with the Insurance laws of the state. Auditor Lyons says this Is thin, very thin, and declares that a few raps and a pass word are not enough to make np a fraternal society, and hints that they merely borrow this garb to carry on a business which Is unsafe und which will not be permitted for a day. So the visiting doctor was very wroth. He delivered quite an extended lecture to the auditor. It was pointed out to him that any organization which held out the Inducements which his did was similar to the famous Woman's Bank of Boston, or other financial schemes which promise to return something for nothing. The auditor further told him that If he could brlnf a certificate from the Insurance commissioner of Massachusetts that his aojlety was a bona fide fra'ornal organisation, no trouble would be made In the matter. Dr. Abbott evinced no desire to get this certificate. The auditor called his attention to the reports and articles' which had appeared In eastern papers In regard to his company and the scheme of Insurance he represented. He replied that all those articles had been paid for by the enemies of the societies he represented and that wholesale bribery had been used. The auditor told him In conclusion that whllapersonally he was firmly convinced ttat the Order was Illegal he would submit the natter to the attorney general at once.' Office. The railway commissioners have Died September 22 as a day to hear the complaint of tne Iowa Floor & Oil Company against the Des Moines Sc. Kansas City Railway Company, and have so notified the parties Interested. The point In dispute li over shipments of flour coming from the north billed through to points on the Des Moines Sc Kansas City. It seems that it Is the custom of the company to allow the floor people, when flour Is shipped from Minneapolis In car load lots, the flour to be taken from the ear In Des Moines, and then re-shlpped under the original billing at car load rates. A short time ago floor was thus re-shlpped and the Son' did not reach Its proper destination. This Is admitted. Now the railroad people say that they will not extend the privilege of breaking bulk to the Iowa Flour Sc. OU Company unless It Is released from all responsibility for errors. The flour company are not willing to give this release, and appeal to the board of commissioners for a bearing. The reports from the various railroads required by law to be furnished to the railway commission are now coming. The time fixed by the statute when It Is necessary for them to be filed is September IS. After that date the railroads are I'a i e under the law In the sum of (101 for each d;j ol Illegal detention. The last report of iba ra'lroad commission, foravarlesy ol laujes, was flelayed aout six m nthi after the time It should have ben Died with the governor, but the commissioners are resolved not to let this occur again and will bave the reportoutln ample time to be cf use to the members of the nex General Assembly. " . Sexton, on the .Milwaukee road, Is very desirous of having a depot, which the company claims Is not Justified by the amount of business done at that point, and It Is very probable the eommlsloners will personally Investigate the matter.

At the session of the board of supervla ors yesterday the principal business was In the matter of providing hospital ac commodatlon at the county farm. The following communication was received: 7o ihe llciiornbU Boards SHfrvitors. OnH' Ti.KMt.N . J oe importance or isolation, ciafsia c-.ilon, rearrangement of the lntnaiee of your county houee Is one of such Importance and tne necessity so urgent, that I take this means ot ofliclally calling your attention to tbe present neeus oi our aims nouse in mis particular. At the present time we nave Mike Kvan. l.. j. Kllry, Henry Baker, Fat Mangan, Ben Berry, Mr. Samuels, Maria, Mrs. Stewart, Mrs. Sage ar-d others wno are In need of special eare and attention so far as their association with the other Inmates of the farm are concerned. They not onlv need to be separated for their own ben- tut. tut for the benefit, comfort and health of the otber inmates of this department of tbe county larm. It should be so arranged from a sanitary view ol tbe situation mat tnesioa could be completely separated from the well. You bave staring you In tbe face not only the present necessities of tbe farm In tbls direction, but tbe necessary lnorease In numbers which tbe winter months are sure to bring and must be provided for, making It necessary that additional room should be provided. Again, many of tbe Inmates ot the county bouse wno are in fair health are. because of faiilne vears. fast be coming invalids, and therefore tbe demands for additional room ana provisions lor caring tor the sick becomes Imperative. All ot wblcb is respectfully suomittea wun the earnest hope that you will grasp tbe situation and proceed at onoe and witbout delay to tbe solution of the problem so eminently proper and necessary. riespectiuiiy suomittea, W. 8. H. Mattuiws Co. physician. A committee of the board had been ap pointed to Investigate the matter and made the following report: To Honorable board of 6uirvior8QH tlsmex: Your committee to whom was re- rreu tbe matter of arranging a proper place at tbe county farm for the proper care of elck, would retort that Id our judgment there should be a bouse built for tbe steward's famllr sepa rate from tbe poor buue, and that tbe part now oted by tbe steward be used for boepltal. We re ol tbe opinion that this will furnnn room lor tbe present and add much comfort to the tkk and feeble now at the la-m. H. O. IsimsoaB, W. Cbkistt, T. B. IIohikson, After considerable discussion It was de- lod to adopt the recommendation of the committee and build a house for the stew- d, to cost not to exceed 81, 500. This, It believed will be the most economical ay of providing for the urgent needs of he Inmates. The house will be built as oon as bids can ba advertised for. The report of the snpettntendent of the poor farm shows that there are now Kl paupers and 43 Insane persons on the farm, The cost of taking care of the poor was 286.44, and of the Insane 199.91 for the month of August. B. Schrelner, civil engineer, reported that be had examined the working plan of the Ball's Ford bridge and approved the same us furnished by the King Iron Bridge Sc. Manufacturing Co., of Cleveland, Ohio. The taxes of the Tibbies sewing machine manufactory company for 1890 were remitted, amounting to about 940. The Cottage bospllalj question was brought up by a communication from the hospital board, explaining the condition of the hospital and asking for the payment of a claim for the care of one Andrew Carlson; for an annual appropriation sufficient to maintain seven beds at the hospital for the use of county patients, all over that to be paid for at 11 a day. They also ask that there be an official supervision of the hospital by the county, and that the county auditor have authority to send patients to the hospital when the members of the board now having It In charge could not be found. The statement shows that It costs about 80,000 a year to properly maintain the hospital. Last year 84,036 were expended and the hospital Is now In debt 8087 and hai only J21 In the treasury. The hospital has f 1,000 a year from the city and has been paid nearly as much, In one way and another, by the county. But It hai been bard wt rk for the hospital to get along. The board did nothing definite In regard to tbe matter, but they can hardly da much more than hat already been done. Tbe board adjourned and will not meet apaln till after election.

The Woman SnSragtsts of Des Moines met yesterday afternoon In the parlors of the Elrkwood House. This was their first meeting since their great effort on the state fair grounds. The committer on fair work reported "unanimously" that this bad been "the most successful year's work since 'Suffrage Cottaie' wa built on the fair grounds." It will be remain bered that of the 150,000 who attended the fair, 1,045 of them signed the suffrage pe tition. The ladles had a cottage taitefully decorated and several of them were al ways present to entertain visitors and proffer the petition to ba -Igned. They bad a "day," on .which they had a meeting, dpt. Head came around and made a gallant little speech, faying a great many nice things about them and expressing sympathy for their desires. On this occasion they had the assistance of Mrs. Carrie Lane Chapman Catt, who made a stirring address. For the courtesies shown them by President Head, Secretary Bhaffer and Mr. J. J. Stuckey they expressed thanks. The tract committee reported the pub lication of 16,000 pages of leaflets, being the testimony for woman suffrage from the ministers of Iowa Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Christian, Congregatlonallst, Catholic, Lutheran, Friends and Adventlst. These leaflets may be obtained from Mrs. A. Miller, 1300 Locust street. A letter from Mrs. E. K, Law, of Forest City, In-formed the society that a "Woman's Day" had been secured at the Winnebago county fair. The women of Ottumwa have se cured a "day" In the Coal Palace Exposi tion and Mrs. Carrie Lane Chapman Catt will give the address. Mr. Cal. Manning, manager of the palace, hopes the suffragists will make their numerical strength how In that day's g.i'e receipts. The society took great pleasure in the reading of the criminal statistics of Wy- micg. "Here Is a state," they said, 'where women have voted for twenty years and there ire only ten parsjns la he penitentiary. We told jou so I" The next parlor mee'.lr.g will te held with Mrs. Joel P. Davis on Saturday, Sep- ember 19, and a conveyance will be at he Klrtwood Hot se at 1:30 p m to carry the ladles out to. the place of meeting. The principal paper was that of Mrs. Nettle P. Fox. Tne subject was HATIM OKOrxDS. The history ot tbe rao is a nietorvof conflicts. Ac' ion Is tbe law of arowtb.

Tbe scales of Jusuoe are long unbalanced: tbe white tbroat of Liberty was for ages under tbe heel of Tyranny; the golden age In wblcb liberty, fraternity and Justice will be universally enjoyed has not yet dawned upon tbe earth. Lone- and terrible bave been tbeoontticta by w hlcb humanity bas been raised from barbarism toward eivUization, and numberless tbe victims wbo bave fallen to prepare tbe way forahiirher, happier life lor comma: generations, upon these battle grounds bave stood tbe ebamptons of rlgbt, ooriect principles, world-lifting reforms; bere, too. have oome the ranks of Ignorance, intolerance and oppression to silenoe or destroy tbe dispassionate teacher, of every newly d Hoovered truth, tbe fearless proclaimed of scicntino tacts, tbe beraids of pbllosophleal firlnclples. How many battles must have been ought upon the bigb table lands of justioe before pasan Home recognized tbe legal independence of wemen. A late writer upon tbls suoj Jet says : 'ln tbe Roman empire woman could hold property in taer own rigbu inheriting a portion of her father's property, she retained tt independently of ber husband. No Inconsiderable portion of tbe wealth of Home was at one time under the absolute control of women. Tnerewas hardly a more constant theme of satire, than tbe alleged tyranny exercised by rich wives over their busnands to whom they loaned money, and not Infrequently at exnorbltant rates of Interest. Mrs. Lldla M. Chlids says: "ttoman advancement may be indicated by a remark of Cato tne Censor, who lived za 11. C. He was accustomed to eay: "'ibey who beat wives or cbildren lay eat hands tn the most sacred things in the wor d.

Here, too, we recognize the statesmen-like Mrs. rjtaoton, the uncompromising Susan Anthony, tbe quiet, deeply earnest Lucy atone, and many otber Justice loving men and women who bave enlisted for tbe war. Some of us bave stood upon tbe ground where the battle to secure higher educational advantages for women was fought: we recall a few of the mottoes upon banners borne by opponents of women's advancement; bere they are: "Women do not want education." "Woman's brain la so small abe is Inca-able of acquiring tbe higher eduoatlon." "The application necessary to secure higher educaticn would prove fatal to tbe del lcate organizations of women." "Women would prove a disturbing element In our ool-lf gee. The contiict upon tbls subject was long, but victory crowned tbe rlgbt, college doors opened, and time bas justified the deed. Tne entrance of women Into trades and professions was tbe signal for another battle; tbe following mottoes are copies taken from banners captured fitim the enemy: "What Is borne witbout a mother ?" "What will become of the children when mamma doctor is away V "Woman has no business tact." "Women laok eiaotnees and promptness In business." "Women have always been supported, and are incapable of oaring for themselves." "Women do not know how to take care of tbe money ihey earn," ."Woman's true sphere Is the borne." 1 be battle ground upon which tbe straggle to secure married women the right to hold property, to oonduot business In their own name and to dispose of acquired or inherited property by will is very near us.

Yesterday's dramshop organ baa a letter from an Inveraclous chap at Grimes, who, speaking of Tuesday evening's enthusias tic meeting at that place, says: After Mr. Coffin a Mr. Bromlev was intro duced and gave the audience about one hoar of a temperance lecture tin In "14 which he de livered for a Republican speech, accusing the jjemcerauo party oi drinking all tne whiskey and breaking all tbe laws. lie acknowledged to your correspondent after the meeting that he wa- not a Republican, but belonged to the proniDition party, ana nas oeen voung tnai ticket, state and National, and also admitted ne was somewhat of a temperance lecturer. Those who are acquainted with Mr. Bromley need not be Informed that he has never told anybody "that be was not a Republican." He Is a Republican all the time, and has at no time acted with the alleged Prohibition party. On tbe occa slon of this meeting at Grimes, It happens that Mr. B. bad no conversation with anybody after the meeting, nor after he spoke; consequently the I. c. of the organ learned nothing at all ot the speaker's politics except what he heard from tbe p'atform. But he evidently heard more In the speech than was agreeable. For Instance, he says Mr. Bromley gave a temperance lecture; but he doesn't tell what kind of a temperance lecture It was. Mr. B. said many uncomfortable things for the whtakeyltes. One of bit Illustrations was drawn from the fact that the life In surance companies and associations either refuse to Issue policies on the.llvesof manufacturers of Intoxicating liquors and dealers therein, or Issue them very sparingly. 'Now,"sald the speaker, "if the persons engaged in the business cannot regulate It so as to make It healthy for themselves, how can any one regulate It so tbas It shall be healthful for the community?" This was a poser and made a profound Impression on the audience, but the correspondent does not mention It, and herein, from his standpoint, he Is quite judicious.

The Levy by theconacll Less Than the Library Board Asked For So many Inquiries bave been made why more books are not bought for the Das Moines Public Library, and why other things are not done, that the library board begs leave to refer these enquiries to the action of the council, which left the library levy at four tenths of one mill, when the board asked for half a mill. After the 81,000 a year rent ami other expenses are paid the board says there Is not enough left. Here Is their address to the council: ?o the Unyor and City Council of th Vlty of I ftHointrt: Tbe undersigned members of the board ot trustees ot tbe city free public library, tbree of whom are also members of jour tonorable body, respectfully represent tbat In their opinion a levy of at least one-half null on tbe present taxable valuation ot tbe city will be necessary to meet tbe reasonable re-qulien.ents of tbe Horary for tbe coming year, tnd e earnestly ask tbat it shall In no event be less tlsn half a mill With tbe prooeeds of a less levy It will be Impossible tn meet tbe rea-sorable demand of tbe public for reading matter and defray the otier necessary expenses of suitably ntalnt Inlng the library. Wbn tbe present board organized and took charge f tbe library it was found that the nee-rrfarlly rigid economy practiced by the previous management bad kept tbe supply of reading matter far within tbe limits of what It should bave bees, and many ot the books ao mutilated and otherwise damaged from ling and hard usage aa to he no longer fit for circulation. The absolutely necessary fixed expenses are so large as to leave tbe amount subject to be expended for books, magazines and newspapers on the basis of former levies ridiculously small, and consequently, notwithstanding a considerable addition tbat has just been made, very many greatly needed fddltlona cannot be made for want of funds. The library la largely patronized by all classes of our citizens, tbe rich and poor alike, tbe former because It la much cheaper than to buy for themselves, and the latter because they tbe means with which to buy for themselves. Tbe elty of Dee Moines pays greatly less for books than it would but for the acoesa It has to this library. Largely mora is saved In this respect on private account than Is paid by taxation for publio account. Thousands ot tbe children of the poor have access to tbe library who have no other means of procuring reading-matter at all adequate to their needs. Respectfully submitted, C. H. Gatch, G.
