Dks Monrcs, Iowa, June 2. The forty-third annual communication of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Iowa la in session in this city in the Grand Opera House. Three hundred or four hundred delegates are present, The reports of the Grand Master, Grand Secretary, and other offioers were submitted yesterday. Grand Master T. Granger reports twelve charters and seven new dispensations issued.

Others have been asked and refused, and the Grand Master deprecates the organization of new lodges except where necessity demands. The new lodges are in Pomeroy, Bagley. Iretoo, Rockwell City, North English, Eidon, and Biverton. The Cnanty committee naa iorwaraea a $200 draft to Galveston whan visited by its tori 1 Die fire last November, bat the etner- gencv had passed before It was received, and tie draft waa retarnoa. xne uraaa aiasier again recommends that the law be amended so that conviction and pontaument may bo had by a majority vote.

Jane 2. The House this morning went into committee of the whole. Mr, 8pringer I til) in the chair, on the oleo margarine bill Mr. Texas, In oppoelngjtbs bill. expressed the thought that had the founders of the government foreseen thst one of the sovereign powers delegated to the General OovaxD mans that of taxation was ulti mately to be employed aa the means of pro tecting one American industry against another.

desDondencv. if not despair, would have staggered their energies, and yet this waa tha substantial purpose of the vicious bill now under consideration, and the fact that It came disguised as a revenue measure but intensified tue vlolousness. There could not be found in the hlstorv of the Republic a more -dangerous precedent than would be established by this bill Tho plea that this bill waa in the Interest of the fsrmer would not do. The farmer waa straggling nnder the burdens imposed by an iniquitous tariff and currency law. Bat as a partial atonement for this wrong, aa some sort of compensation tor tue stupendous harden the fsrmsrs bore, their chosen representatives were engaged in a heroic struggle to crush out that sum of all evils oleomargarine.

Tbis might be sstisfaolory to the large dalrv Interests of the country, but he mis took tbs patrlotio manhood of the American farmer if be did not respond to tuts preposition indignantly and resentfully. Mr. FerralL of Virginia, said thst the ar gument made on the Republican slae that the passage of this bill would tend to a reduction of tariff taxes was the best argument that could be offered why Democrats should favor It. and had only strengthened him in his advocacy of the measure. It waa not proposition to build op one honest Industry at tne expense of another honest Industry, bat to build up one honest Industry at the expense of fraudulent and dishonest industry.

It was legislating in favor of truth and aaralnst falsehood. Ua douob or at netcn, oi Aew zora, au amendment was adopted inserting the word "knowmglv" In the clause tmpoing a pen alty upon every person wno paronun or receives for sale anv oleomargarine from any manufacturer who has not paid tne special tax Mr. Hstnmond. of Georgia, attacked the bill, and esneciallv the "informer" section. whlcn.

be said, would place a marshal or his d'puty in every community of tne country. He would not vote for such a measure. Mr. Breckinridge, of Arkansas, said that nothing had impressed htm more with the neceasitv of having a conservative body at the ether end of the capltoi than the ease with which gentlemen had ridden down every constitutional barrier and flocked together in ill assorted numbers in support of this bill, it waa tne most estonianing aou odious me as are ever presented to congrees. vt Kiscocx, or his roax, said that the bill proposed to tax a fraud, a dace Dti on.

and a pirate on bonest Industry. No friend of the measure had ever understood that It went any farther than thaa It waa not Intended to tax any product that could not be sold and did not havs the semblance of butter. It intended simply to tax Umm na ten tod oroduots that tha said of chemists bad enabled the manufacturers to palm off on an unsuspecting people aa butter. He bad so fear tnat the palladium of our liberties was in danger or that the taxing power would be invoked to crush out any legitimate industry and used as authority for a measure of otioreasion, This was a representative body and since he hsd been a member or tne nous ins policy avuuu which had been followed waa that when the country expected legisla tion which would represent lie wishes and its will and Coogress could. a nae the Constltut-on grant the petition, it hastened to do aa It was only when a ma jority of the House, which represented the wnoie country, eaw its wav iu to legislation of this kind that it would tread on it Mr.

Ilolman. of Indiana, spoke in favor of the object of the bill and incidentally advocated the repeal of the tobacco tax. He maintained that oleomargarine was a proper subject of taxation, Mt OP xrxjxots, called attention to the fact that the oleomargarine would not be taxed unless it were sold, sud it would not be soid unless it were used for food, and who would consume the food, the well-to-door the poorl The gentleman (Mr. ilolman) had aald that by way of relieving agriculture the tobacoo tax should be taken off. This year tobacco would yield to the government When that was taken iff tne gov ernment could spare no more the present condition of the country.

Did the gentlemen mean that tobacoo should be freed from tax, ana sugar ana eai anu wood, and article o' abeiter and clothing should oonunue to bear tho burden. To repeal the tobacco tax meant keeping on all other Laxet. Tbia article (holding up a cigar) yielded the government $11,000,000. lake off that $11,000,000 and what men would be act at work? What new wheels would be turned? What Industry would be encouraged? Bat take off the tax ou wool, which yielded to tne Treasury and tne spindles would be let loose and work would be made for the Idle, and yet It was proposed to awap tale ill.OOO.OOO for Air.

McKenna favored the bill and Mr. Law- ler opposed it. Mr. Bsyne. of Pennsylvania, aaid there was nothing in the bill that would prevent tbe poor man from buying oleomargarine, without tne payment of any tax, if ba went to the manufacturer and purcuated oleomargarine thst was not produced in imitation of butter.

The telegram presented, misrepresented the wage workers of Pennsylvania. It did not speak tuelr true sentiments and convictions. Mr.

Heniy sustained tha constitutionality of the bill. tfr. aiaMillin. of Tennessee, moved Xo strike out the clause which provides that half of tbe fines and -penalties Imposed br this act shall go to the informer. The House would sot, his judgment, do Itself ju-itlce if it enacted suoa an obnoxious piece of legislation, The motion wss agreed to i to j.

Then in accordance with an arrangement mada tbia afternoon, the committee rose and reported tbe bill to the House, the understanding being that a vote ahouid be taken to-morrow and that an opportunity snouia be given to allow memoers to pasa upon the onestlon of reducing the rate of tax imposed. 1BI U9UH linaaujviumui LAND-QRAST tbx xoirruaa paoipio quksttox.

The wholo land grant waa 42,000,000 acres, which at 4 an acre, the average rate at which the lands bad been sold by tbe company, would make $108,000,000. Mr. Dolph and Mr. Plumb supported tho bliL Tbe Senate adopted an amendment pro posed by Mr. Plumb on behalf of tbe Committee on Public Lands providing for the re payment in proper cases of cost of surveying to purchasers.
