Saturday, Sept. 16, . 1837, was an important day in the history of Iowa. In the little city of Burlington, which was then the capital of Wisconsin Territory, the people were going about their usual business on the river · front, in the stores, and at the offices of lawyers and land dealers. Country people were in town to do their trading and talk politics. For three years the region north of the Missouri and west of the Mississippi river had been governed at long range from Detroit and Belmont. Peace and order depended more upon the high character of the settlers than upon the regular enforcement of the law. And so the citizens of Demoine county, discussing the lack of legal regulations and the need of more local government, decided to have a meeting in the afternoon to agree upon a plan of action. The assembly on that fateful autumn' day could not have been large, for not more than 300 men lived in Burlington then. Nevertheless those alert pioneers took the first step toward the creation of the commonwealth of Iowa. After some discussion, they recommended that the people of each county in western Wisconsin select three delegates to a convention to be held at Burlington on the first Monday of November. The purpose of this gathering was to consider ways and means of organizing a new Territory west of the Mississippi. In response to this call, delegates from seven counties met in the new capitol on Front street. The legislature of Wisconsin Territory also assembled there at the same time. Burlington was stirred with interest. Everybody talked politics. Politicians thronged the main street overlooking the river which so obviously formed a natural boundary for a new Territory. For three days the Territorial Convention remained in session. The governor, judges, Correct this sentence: "I'll sell you this one," said the dealer, "but 1 must warn you that a new model will be on the'market next week."-- Ccdttr Itoplds Gazette. IOWA BOUNDARIES FROM 1838 TO 18-16 petition to congress was adopted unanimously. Because Wisconsin Territory was too large, because it was naturally divided by the Mississippi river, because the Iowa country was far from the future capital at Madison, because the population of the western part already numbered 25,000 and was increasing rapidly, because the people needed more courts, and because the intelligence, wealth and enterprise of the settlers deserved a better government--for all these reasons the convention respectfully asked that the Territory of Iowa be created. This petition and another from the legislature were presented in the house of representatives by George W. Jones, the delegate to congress from Wisconsin Territory. Three months after the convention in Burlington, a bill "to establish the Territorial Government of Iowa" was reported favorablj to the house. There-the matte rested. Months passed and th house of representatives foun no time to consider the bill Meanwhile, however, a simila: bill was introduced in the sen ate. On June 1,1838, it was de bated and passed. No one seem ed to be seriously opposed to it In the house the bill had a much stormier passage. Sev session. o.m: guvciuui, juu 6 v^, eral representatives denied th legislators, and prominent law- necessity or desirability of yers were invited to attend. Everyone thought Wisconsin Territory should be divided. Various'names were proposed for the western -part, such as Washington and Jefferson: but the more suitable name of Iowa was chosen. On the third day a new Territory west of the Mis sissippi. There must have been times when George W. Jones and his friends felt that the tide of battle was turning against them. At the very out set the settlers of Iowa were called law-breakers--men wh laimed public land for their irivate use. Instead of giving hem protection, declared lharles Shepard of North Carolina, they ought to be driven out "at the' point of the bayonet." Other representatives, however, came to the defense of the squatters. The courageous men and women who were engaged in the worthy enterprise of developing the country had broken no law by cultivating the land before it was surveyed. Such ambition ought to be rewarded rather than punished. Waddy Thompson of South Jarolina thought that the formation of a new Territory would soon destroy the balance of power between the slave and free states. That remart: caused a lively debate on slavery before another opponent of the bill changed the subject by insisting that the salaries of the Territorial officers were too high. The contest continued for parts of two days. All. sorts of arguments and parliamentary tricks were used to defeat the bill. Several amendments were adopted. At last, on June 6, the house voted 118 to 51 to create the Territory of Iowa. But the battle was not yet won. Perhaps the senate would refuse to accept the house amendments, and all would be lost. The session of congress was nearing a close. The opposition of Senator John C. Calhoun was especially feared. Delegate Jones tried to persuade him to vote for the bill, but the stern South Carolinian refused to consent to the "formation of a new Territory which in a few years would be- come a powerful abolition state." Unsuccessful in his own efforts to win the support of the southern statesman, Jones tried another means. He asked Anna Calhoun, the senator's daughter, to plead for Iowa. Confident of success, she promised to do her best; but her father would not yield. Jones then invited her to be present in the gallery of the senate during the debate on the Iowa bill. "When I send you my card," he told her, "come down, send your card for your father, and take him into the library and keep him there till I call for you." The warm June afternoon was drawing to a close when the fateful moment arrived. Delegate Jones, sitting beside his friend, Senator Clayton, communicated with Miss Calhoun. A moment later she appeared at the door of the senate and sent in her card. Senator Calhoun arose and left the chamber. He was scarcely gone before the bill to create the Territory of Iowa was brought up for final adoption. Daniel Webster and Thomas H. Benton thought the house should not have lowered the salaries of the Territorial officers, but Henry Clay and others supported the change Only six senators, all from the south, finally voted against the bill. President Van Buren signed the law on June 12 anc Iowa became a Territory on the Fourth of July, 1838. PACKING HOUSE MARKETS 122 So. Fed.
