Diagram and Descriptions of the Chosen Site. The f.nkfl Front nncf Jackson Park, Where Uio WnrM'n Columbian Kxposltlon Will Be Hitcl— Over 700 Acres of Gronnel —TrHtisportiitlon and Exhibit*. Speaking of the site definitely selected by the directory of the world's fair a Chicago morning paper says : There are 40 acres of land now available in tho Lake Front Park, with the possibility of more being added. In Jackson Park in the entirety there are 586 acres. In the Midway Plaisance there aro 80 acres. This makes a total of 700 acres available for tho purposes of tho World's Columbian Exposition. In addition to this there may be added perhaps 100 acres of land now beneath the sur- fnce of Lake Michigan. A GREAT many people consider it a sign that they are pretty to see their pictures placed in the photographer's show case. Perhaps, suggests the Atchison Globe, tLo pictures are placed there to show how nice an ugly face can be made to appear. TITKUK has been no failure in the oyster crop. That delicious and succulent ocean product is reported to be unusu- •lly plentiful, and fat and healthy. The oyster will make himself a leading ingredient in the make-up of many a man in the cool, crisp days to come. A BOSTON telegraph operator tho other day wanted to say something to tho main office, but, as he couldn't readily get direct connection, ho used his Now York line, and the little message went through five hundred miles to roach its destination a few blocks away. It is thus that electricity annihilates distance. It is said it requires 350 tons of coal a day to feed the furnaces under the boilers of the steamer City of Now York and 345 a day for the Columbia. Tho Teutonic in her recent record-beating trip turned $10,000 worth of coal into smoke and steam. It is estimated that a trip is rarely made one way across the Atlantic with tho consumption of less than $7,'500 worth of coal. IT is difficult even to imagine the den- •sity of the ignorance and superstition which must prevail in those sections of Spain where tho peasants murder the TI1K DUAI- SITE. As matters now stand, the world's fair managers have at their disposal more than three times the space used in Paris. Originally it was believed 30 acres were needed between Jackson, street and Park row, but according to tho report of Director Hutchinson, chairman of the special committee on that subject, 70 acres are needed instead of 30. This contemplates tho filling in of a street cable strip of land between Jackson street and Park row of about 500 or COO feet in width at an approximate cost of $500,000. The committee on grounds and buildings reports that the South Park Commissioners offered 530 acres of the park area and 80 acres of the Midway Plaisance. THE TUA3TSPORTA.TION QUESTION. Tho site having been definitely settled upon, the next question arising is the transportation of visitors between the city and Jackson Park. Jackson Park is located on the lake shore between Fifty-sixth street on the north and Sixty-seventh street on the south. No other site in tho city can compare with it in the ease with which •doctors-who are endeavoring to prevent | it , an bo reac hed. The Cottage Grove •the spread of tho cholera. The account j avenue cablo ] lne runs to the park en- words, he believed they could not run •of tho insane outbreak of the peasantry j seems more like a page of medieval his- \ tovy than a news item fresh telegraphed from the scene of the occurrences. NEAR Goodland, Indian Territory, •there is a singular well oC hot air. Tho .air rushes out at regular intervals, after •which it resumes its normal tern per• aturc. Shavings, paper and other light in flammable substances thrown into tho "well when it is cool sink to the bottom, ; but when tho hot air rushes in they are blown to the surface scorched to a crisp. The air is intensely hot and dry, with- vout any odor, and rushes out without •making a flame or noise. trains for tho accommodation of wdfld's fair passengers under the terms of the lease with the Illinois Central. Granting that the Illinois Central should take tho position outlined by Superintendent Snyder, it remains to bo seen how tho Illinois Contra! can handle tho traffic which will thereby fall to It alone. President Fish of the Illinois Central was out of the city yesterday, but his remarks to the committee on transportation, embodied in the committee's report of August ll>, may be taken ns indicative. President Fish declared to tho company that he and his company were desirous of doing every thing that could properly bo done to promote tho success of tho fair. While not feeling himself authorized to commit the company to a contract for rates to be charged in 1803 between tho city and tho exposition, he thought tho passengers could bo carried at tho rate of five cents. He thought the exposition company should provide grounds for a depot circular track, or "Y" at tho park. Tho company would have to make a permanent investment of upward of $1,000,000 for additional tracks, and equipment which would bo of little value after the fair ended. This equipment, however, would enable the company to transport from 20,000 to 25,000 passengers per hour. M. M. Kirkman, vice-president of the Northwestern road and a member of the committee on transportation o! the world's fair directory, said yesterday: "The question of transportation was looked up several months ago. The transportation committee interviewed President Fish of tho Illinois Cantral and were cordially received. He snid he would help out the fair all he could, and gavo us a rate of five cents from the Lake Front to Jaikson Park, with facilities for transporting 30,000 people an hour. The committee thought this answered the utmost expectations of the directors, as under this agreement the Illinois Central can take passengers from the city to the fair for five cents, with no stops, in eight minutes' time at the utmost. A tramway or electric railway is, probably, not necessary to carry visitors to tho fair. There has never been a fair where it has not been necessary to take cars to its different parts, an obiect which can not bo said of tho Chicago world's fair." Tho cablo company has already a direct line to Jackson Park, via Cottage Grove avenue. It will bo comparatively easy and inexpensive to divert the Stdte line to the east, thereby giving another line to the world's fair site. Beside this, the cross-town cars can be so managed as to connect with the Cottage Grove avenue and State street cable lines, all for a faro of live cents, giving a most complete system of streetcar service. Added to these facilities is to be considered the so-called alley elevated railroad now in course of construction upon the South side. President God- diird of the South-Side Rapid-Transit Company says there is no doubt that a sufficient mileage of the "L' 1 road will be completed in twelve months, and that plans "will be arranged so as to land passengers directly at the park. "Our road," ho said, "will be capable of transporting 20,000 persons per hour in each direction. Our rate of faro, fixed by ordinance, is five cents per passenger, without regard to distance." r IOWA STATE NflWS. HURLED A DYNAMITE BOMB* tbo MIMlie Thrown Into an Infirmary at Mlosmflold. A dynamite botnb was thrown into the room usually occupied by tho ma* won in Dr. Shelton's infirmary at Bloom* laid the other morning about 1 o'clock. The matron fortunately was not in the apartment at the tlmo. Tho bomb exploded with torrlflc force, completely wrecking the room, blowing out partition walla, doors and a great many windows, and exploding a large can of gasoline in the room overhead. The building was saved from the flames by prompt action. No cause can bo assigned us a motivo for the deed. A Novel Invention. A Port. Dodge man has invented a telephone attachment that will bo a boon to professional people. It is in tho shape of a clockwork connected with the telephone and is provided with a dial, the hand of which can bo sot at any hour. When the owner is about to leave his office he turns the hand to tho figure denoting tho hour at which he will return, and whenever the telephone is "run? up" the ringer is informed by a series of taps the time the absent business man will be back again. lown Game L:iws. The following game laws of Iowa may be interesting to sportsmen: Moose, doer and caribou may bo shot from and nfccr September 1 until the end of the year; geese and ducks from August 15 to May 1 of tho next year; grouse from September 1 to December 1; quail from October 1 to January 1; woodcock from July 10 to January 1; turkeys from Oc- tobor 1 to January 1. t Well to Remember. Petty thieves in tho State should bear in mind tho new law regulating their business. A second cofirietion for the crime of petty lai'oeny serais the thief to tho penitentiary the same as for grand larceny. Heretofore* a fellow could go on stealing in a small way and so long as the amount was less than $20 he could continue. Now a second offense sends him up. Dos Moines Klver Land Cases. The clerk of the United States District Court at Dubuquo has been notified to prepare a. transcript of the Des Moines river land cases, which the Government will appeal from Judge Shiras to the United States' Supreme Court. Tho order comes from Attorney-General Stone, of Iowa, who is assisting in the case by order of tho Legislature. Mysterious Shooting. Florence Welkins was found lying on a sidewalk in Burlington early tho the morning with a bullet wound in her left breast. Clyde Lutz, who was supposed to have done the shooting, was arrested and held under 85,000 bail to await the outcome. Miss Welkins might survive. Lute's father is a well-known farmer of Western Illinois. IOWA PROrifBTtONlfltS. nnd Sf Al v t SOME of the troops of San Salvador have a fantastic uniform. "A few wore BandaLs," writes one who suw -them, "but the most of them were barefooted. They had huge straw hats with rod liands on them. Most of them wore •overall suits trimmed with red braid; others wore dressed in a go-as-you-pleasa fashion, with all manner of uniform. Every man in the company had a big revolver strapped around his waist. Some of them carried rifles and mus- •kcts. IN Cincinnati and Atchison, Kas., tho school boards have recently voted to •discharge all married female school teachers now holding positions in public schools. The question has been •warmly debated, especially in Cincinnati, tout tho opponents of the married wom- §n have carried their point. They base their action on the ground that a woman's husband is her natural supporter, and that having elected to take a husband she must look to him for support instead of to tho city. Struck by A very heavy rain visited Mason City and locality the other night. During the storm lightning struck Will Kehm's large barn in the eastern part of tho county, and it, together with fifty tons of hay, was burned. Kehm and wife were both in the barn when it was struck, and both were knocked insensible and were carried out. Smothered In an Oat Bin. Guy Wetlauffor, the oldest son of tho foreman of Governor Boies' farm in Grundy County, was smothered to death tho other day in n bin of oats from which the grain was being drawn. He was not discovered till one foot cama through the chute. His body was found under eight feet of oats. How he got into the bin was a mystery. Iowa I.ibrarliins. The public librarians of Iowa mot at Des Moiues tho other day and effected and organization by the election of the following officers: President, Mrs. Mary H. Miller, State Librarian; Vice- Presidont, Mr. Johnston, of tho Fort Dodge public library; Secretary, Mrs, Ada North, of the State University. ST- JACKSON A:ND SUUISOUKDINGS. THE Russian Government is going at the food adulterators in a way that is «ot at all encouraging to them. Persons convicted of the sale of injurious eubstanitfs of food will be fined 300 rou- bles or imprisoned three months. A rouble is about seventy-five cents. It will be readily seen that it will scarcely pay for the green grocer in Russia to be caught sanding his sugar or sifting dust into his black pepper or so labeling tiis oleomargarine as to seU it for good •country butter. A second offensomeans I enter the city. a double penalty and a third means tho loss of civil and political rights. •"WHAT do you think of trees 650 foot high?" Fred G. Plummer, civil engineer, asked an Olyrnpia (Wash.) Tribune reporter the other day. "They are to be found that high in tho unsurveyed town•chips near tho foot of Mount Tacoma, .and what is wore 1 have seoa them and made an instrumental measure of a inumuer "with that result. There aro lots of trees near tho base of Mount Ta•coma whose foliage is so far above tlio ground that it is impassible to tell tc what family they belong-, except by tho bark. Very few people know or dream of tho immensity of our forest growtlf in the west" trance, the State street cable line connects with street-car lines to the park at Sixty-first and Sixty-third streets, while cross-town cars come in from the west at Twenty-sixth street, Archer avenue, Thirty-first, Thirty-ninth, Forty- third and other streets up to Seventy- ninth street. The faro over any of these lines to Jackson Park is five cents. The Illinois Central, Michigan Central, Baltimore & Ohio and Kanka- keo railroad lines run near the park on the west. All of the eastern and southern lines of railway run within a short distance of the park. Tho Illinois Central owns the right of way over which the Michigan Central, Kankakeo aud Baltimore & Ohio roads Under the terms of the lease by which these roads are to use the Illinois Central tracks, they are not to interfere with tho suburban service of the Illinois Ccnral. The latter owns a right of way of 200 feet in width and has in some places six and eight tracks which etui bo extended into the heart of tho city. It is a question whether, under the tornis of the lease, the other roads can run trains to the fair and whether other trains to the fair than the Illinois Central can be strictly considered us interfering with the Illinois Central's suburban service. Superintendent Snyder of the Michigan Central suid ho had not considered the question, but should judge that the Illinois Central would object to other roads using its tracks for the transpor- of exposition visitors—in THE EXHIBITS. A recent Washington dispatch says: The work of classification of the exhibits for the world's fair, which was committed to Prof. G Brown Goode, has boon finished. In arranging the classification Prof. Goode has provided for ten groups or departments, as follows: I. Agriculture and allied industries, including agriculture, horticulture, forestry, stock raising, etc. a. Mining and metallurgy. 3. Marino and lishories. 4. Manufacture and other elabonitive industries, including exhibits of machinery, processes and products. 5. Food and its accessories. 0. The house and its accessories, dress and personal equipment. 7. The architectural, plastic aud decorative arts. 8. Social relations and public welfare. 9. Science, general education am! human achievements. 10. Collected exhibits. Each department is arranged in a number of divisions. These divisions are again subdivided. "Tho classification has been made very full," yidil Secretary Butterwortb, "ia order that there might be complete information touching tho character of exhibits that would be received and that would be desired. The plans for buildings are being prepared, the classification is now complete, tho literature pf tho fair is being prepared, the scope of awards arranged, correspondence os- Ublished with various nations with reference to having them participate, unofficially of course, as yet, but none thp less effectively. News in llriur. Iowa will receive throe times the amount of money this year for her crops that she did last. The headquarters of the Chicagto division of the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City road have been transferred from Chicago to Dubuque. The Des Moinos Electric Street-Railway Company has purchased the Belt- Lino road, and now controls the entire railway system of that place. F. M. Dorsey, of New York, proposes erecting a large manufactory at Sioux City. Linen manufactured from lowu straw will be the output. Saloon-keepers walkupregularly each month at Sioux City and pay a fine of $50 for keeping a "disorderly house," and public, conscience is satisfied. After three years of work and tho expenditure of 810,000 Boone has stopped work on the artesian well and given up the search for a flowing stream. Quail and turkeys will be ripe in this State from October 1 to January 1. During the labor parade at Davenport a number of burglaries were committed. At tho house of Henry Frahm 82,000 was secured in diamonds and jewelry. Tho Mutual Protectionists of Western Iowa held their annual reunion at Missouri Valley recently. The public exercises drew u, crowd of 4,030. The saloon kept by John Harmsley at Mason City was raided the other night by the mayor and police ofiicers, and a quantity of beer and a case of porter was seized. George Ray Cook, a prominent young farmer living near Winterseti committed suicide the other day by shooting himself in th« heart. Disappointment in lovo was the cause. Tho farmers along the hottpms in Louisa County are preparing a petition to Congress for an appropriation to builti a levee from the Iowa rivei- tp the south line of the flooded region, and thereby reclaim a large acreage jof va\.« farming land. they Meet in ben Moinos i a Ticket-The I D*8 MotNBS, ta^ Sepfci 6. -"-The fclbition State* convention met At th* «oimty coui't-housa Thursday and nomi* nated the followlrtg ticket!

At tho afternoon session the plan of organization adopted pledges a vigorous campaign, and calls upon county committees to place county and city tickets in the field throughout the State. It was determined to establish an official organ at Dos Moines, to be edited by Rev. W. A. Campbell,,of Clarinda. The following was the report ot tho committee on resolutions: 1. The Prohibition party of Iowa recognizing God as '.he source of all power in human government; and, 2. Whereas, our oft-repealed declaration that tho abolition of tho drink traffic as a National issue has been confirmed by the decision of the Supremo Court, as well as by the act* of both houses of ConRress, therefore wo pro- gent to the people of the State the following declaration of principles : 3. We reaffirm ourunswervlng devotion to the principles laid down in the Prohibition National platform of 1888. 4. Realizing more clearly than ever before that tho liquor interest has its gigantic feet upon tho neck of the Democratic party, while its mighty hand clutches the throat of the Republican party, we will give our allegiance only .to a political party whose, corner-stone is laid on National prohibition, and where' every member ia tho deadly enemy of the saloon. rB. Believing that the annihilation of the drink curse, which devours the earnings of the producers and laboring classes, will go a long way toward the settlement of the differences between capital and labor, we invite all the farmers and laborers who are with us agreed that the drink traffic is the dominant issue in politics, to join us in the groat crusade of the home against the saloon. rt. We demand the enacmtent by Congress of u law declaring that intoxicating liquors as a beverage shall'ceaae to be an 'article of interstate commerce anywhere in the United States. T. BelleviFg that it is wrong to raise a revenue on that which pauperizes the people and Increases crime, we demand the repeal of the Internal revenues system, so far as it applies to the sale of liquor and tobacco. 8. We believe the true doctrine now is, of tariff for revenue adjusted, so far as possible, BO as to enable American industry to compete with foreign industry. 9. Wo demand that the voter shall be protected in the utmost secrecy in casting his ballot, and that the ballot shall be printed and distributed at tho expense of the State. 10. We favor equal suffrage without distinction of sex. 11. We favor the governmental control of transportation and communication. 12. We favor the postal savings bank system. 13. We believe there is no more reason for the withdrawal of the so-called non-partisan W. C. T. U. of Iowa from the National Union than there was for the secession of South Carolina from the Union in 1800, and wo extend our sympathies to the women who remain loyal to the National W. C. T. U. After adopting the resolutions, C. R. McParland, of Cerro Gordo County, was placed in nomination for • Secretary of State by Harmon Cook. He was nominated by acclamation. For Auditor of State R. A. Dorcus, of Toledo, Tama County, was nominated by acclamation. For Treasurer, C. A. Hunter, of Keokuk Countv, placed in nomination J. C. Reed, of Keokuk County, and he was nominated by acclamation. For Attorney General no nomination was made, the matter being referred to tho State Central Committee to act, For Judeje of tho Supreme Court Daniel B. Turney, of Cedar County, was placed in nomination. The man who named him stated that Mr. Turney was R Methodist minister. He was nominated by acclamation. F. S. Spurrier, of Taylor County, was nominated for Clerk of the Supreme Court; F. S. White, of Dallas, for Reporter. and for Railroad Commissioner Caleb Dailey, of Henry County.

R. Wells, of Preston, as chairman. After several speeches and the appointment of committees on credentials, permanent organization and resolutions, a recess was taken. The convention was called to order again at '2:45 and at once heard and adopted the report of the committee on credentials. There was but one small contest and that was easily settled. Nominations for Governor wore called for, and Thomas Wilson, of Winona; F. W. Durant, of Stillwater; Dr. A. A. Ames, of Minneapolis, and S. M. Owen, of Minneapolis, were named. Mr. Owen is the candidate of the Farmers' Alliance for Governor. Before a vote was taken tho committee on resolutions presented their report, which was adopted. Ott the tariff the platform says: We demand a reduction of all tariff taxes to tho lowest rate compatible with a just dls charge of the obligations resting upon the Federal Government, and so long as the sys tern of customs taxation is maintained that it- shall consist of a tariff for revenue only. We congratulate the Republican party upon the recent concessions to Democratic policy involved in the advocacy by 'Certain eminent Republican leaders of that plan of free commercial exchanges, with certain foreign countries which is known as reciprocity. This partial free trade has formerly operated to the vast advantage to the people of the United States under the reciprocity treaties with Canada and the Sandwich Islands. It can bo wisely extended. , Tho Democracy of the State of Minnesota, 1% convention assembled, express anew their appreciation and approval of tho broad statesmanship, the steadfast, unswerving devotion to right principle, and the heroic self-sacrifice of Grover Cleveland in compelling consideration by the people of the vital question of tariff reform. He forced tho Republican party to remove the mask behind which the loaders had hidden their purpose to use tho taxing power of the Government to build up wealthy classes upon which they could rely for the money wherewith to corrupt voters and retain their control of the Government. Tho chairman then read a letter from S. M. Owen, in which be stated that he- was the candidate of those who were fighting for principles, not for offices, and he could not permit himself to be brought before the Democratic convention for nomination or endorsement. His name was therefore declared withdrawn, and Hon. E. W. Durant also withdrew. The roll was called and resulted: Wilson, S05; Ames, 104; Buck, Owen, Durant and Kelly, 1 each, Before the vote could bo announced Dr. Ames got the floor and moved to make the nomination unanimous, which was done. E. G. Pahl was nominated for Lieutenant- Governor. At tho evening session tho ticket was completed, as follows: Secretary of State, A. T. Lindholm, of Stlllwater; Auditor, Adolph Bierman, of Olmstead County; Treasurer, Charles M. Foote, of Minneapolis; Attorney-General, David T. Calhoun, of St. Cloud; Clerk of the Supremo Court, T. F. O'Hare, of Traverse County. KANSAS liESUnMISSIOXISTS. WICHITA, Kan., Sept 10. — The Republican resubmission party of Kansas met in State convention here Tuesday. Hon. D. A. Banta, of Great Bend, was elected chairman. Tho committee on resolutions reported the platform. It renews the pledge of unwavering loyalty to tho principles of the National Republican party, favors reciprocity, demands free coinage of silver, such modifications of the tariff laws as will give equal protection to agriculture and manufactures, an equitable bankrupt law and liberal pension laws. On the question of prohibition the platform says: We arraign tho party managers in this State as disloyal to the principles and unfaithful to the interest of the Republican party. Wo charge that they have put the pa.rty in Kansas out of harmony with the National Republican party and thereby absolved us from all obligations to longer acknowledge their leadership. The convention, in compliance with an agreement with the Democrats by means of a conference committee, nominated Charier Robinson for Governor and D. A, Banta for Lieu tenant-Governor. KANSAS DEMOCUATS. WICHITA, Kan., Sopt. 10.— The Democrats mot in convention Tuesday and organized by electing IL H. Harris, of Fort Scott, permanent chairman and received and adopted the following report from the committee on resolutions: Resolved, That we, the representatives of the Democratic party of Kansas, in convention, declare : Continued opposition to all paternalism in government, State aud National affairs; we declare the Federal election bill a legitimate offspring of the party which filched a Presidency; we favor a tariff law based upon public necessities and not the greed of capital ; we oppose all sumptuary legislation and demand the earliest resubmission of the so-called prohibitory amendment to a vote ot the people ; we arraign the Republican members of the No. tional House of Representatives from Kansas for their unanimous vote for the MoKJnley bill. The convention then proceeded to nominate a ticket. There were two candidates for Governor, Charles Robin- eon, a resubmisslonist, and ex-Governor Glick, a straight-out Democrat and the only Democratic Governor ever elected in the State. When the determination to fuse with the resubmissionists became evident Mr. Gliok withdrew and Mr. Robinson was nominated by acclamation. The ticket was completed as follows: Lieutenant-Governor, D.
