Gibson, a retired farmer of Salem, received a majority,of the ballots over J, E. Reid, of Delta,' and Rev. J. Q. Little, Of Perry. The following is the ticket complete: Governor—Isnnc T. Gibson, of Salem. Lieutenant Governor—Bet. J. G. Little, of Perry. . , State Superintendent of Schools—Mrs. M. H. Dunham, of Burlington. Railroad Commissioner—O. S. Hart, of Page. Supreme Judge—D. 8. Turnoy, Of Bennett. The report of the committee on resolutions was read by Mrs. E. G. Cline, and was adopted as follows: The prohibition party in the State of Iowa in convention assembled, acknowledging Almighty God as the aourc* of all power in government, tho holy sSrlptures be recognized M the basis of all civil law, do hereby declare: 1. That the manufacture, Importation, exportation, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages should be mmde public crimes and prohibited as such. 8. That such prohibition can b« secured onlj through amendments to the national and state constitutions and adequate laws secured and supported by the prohibition party in nation an 6 state. 3. That any form of license or taxation of the liquor traffic is partnership therein and participation in it.- immorality; it is therefore the duty of every fejod citizen to withhold his support from the republican, democratic and so- called people 1 * parties, which are committed to the continuance of the license Iniquity., 4. That the Internal revenue system should be immediately abolished. 6. We demand the retention of the present law prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating liquors as a, beverage. To secure the execution of the law we favor by the next leglslatvre the appointment of a commission with power to remove all peace and police officers within the state who will not enforce the law; the appointment of a state constabulary and also a sufficient appropriation of state funds to enable the law to be enforced in rebellious cities and counties. 6. We favor tho submission by congress of a federal constitutional amendment ordering that the right to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of .sex; we favor an educational basis of qualification. 7. We demand laws prohibiting deals in fu tures upon any board of trade, .chamber of commerce or public market. • .8. We demand the passage, of laws prohibiting aliens owning 'ands within the territory of the United States; also corporate privileges; and that congress take prompt action to devise a plan to .obtain all lands now owned by aliens and foreign syndicates, and that all lands held by railroads and other corporations unearned according to contracts, and In excess of actual use and tSeeus, be reclaimed by the government and held for actual settlers only. 9. The right to make and issue money is sovereign power, residing with and to be maintained by the people for the common benefit. Wo believe in a triune currency consisting of gold, silver and paper money, floating a't par in the market. We demand the abolition ot national banks as banks of issue, and that the federal government issue all moneys. We favor the free coinage of gold and silver limited to the production of the United States, putting a dollar's worth of material and labor into each dollar that may hereafter be coined. 10. We demand the election of president, vie* president and United States senators by a direct vote of the people. 11. We favor the Australian ballot system. 12. We demand that our American laborers shall be protected from pauper and criminal labor of Europe, and that our immigration and naturalization laws be so arranged that our shores shall cease to be the dumping ground for the political auflk social dregs of foreign lands. ^" 13. We express our appreciation of the National Women's Christian Temperance union and all loyal workers therein. 14. We favor a gradual, just and equitable income tax for the collection ot state and national revenue. 15. Arbitrations should take the place oi strikes and other Injurious methods ot settling labor disputes; employes should be protected from bodliy injury or lh : property while in the faithful performance of their duties;,equal pay for equal work should be given both sexes. 16. It is the sense of this convention that all wageworkers should be paid in cash and allowed to purchase In the markets with perfect freedom. A resolution favoring the payment to soldiers of the loss they sustained by reason of the depreciation of greenbacks during the war was defeated on the ground that it would, offend the southern prohibitionists, although the speakers defended the resolution as just. A state central committee was elected composed of one member from each district and other plans formed to carry on an active campaign. The action of the people's party in dodging the prohibitory issue, both in the Cincinnati and Dea Moines platforms, was commented upon and denounced. IOWA NEWS LETTER. Political Pot Bailing itt AS Parts of the Btato. Ticket* Already In tlie Field, R«publlc«n« nnd Democrat* Still Hear From-A Fttttt l»fttac« tot Council JiltiftJii With to SONS OF VETERANS, [Special Dea Moines correspondence.! The lines are fapldly forming for th« great political battle in Iowa this year. Two conventions have now been held. and two full tickets are in the field. The people's party, indorsing the Cifl- cftmati platform, has placed before the people for governor, A. J. Westfall, oi Woodbury county; for lieutenant governor, Walter Scott, of Appanooso coun« fcy. The state prohibition convention has nominated Isaac T. Gibson, oi Salenij for governor, and J. H. Little, of Dallas, for lieutenant governor. Both these parties have made radical demands in behalf of the reformation Which they deem "necessary for the good of the state. The democratic convention will be the next one held, which. will be June 24, at Ottumwa; followed by the republican convention on July 1 at Cedar Rapids. So on the 4th of July there will be four full political tickets in the field in Iowa from which tha voter may make his choice. As to prohibition, there will probably be two parties, the republican and prohibition party standing by the present law, the people's party independent on the subject, and the democratic party indorsing license. While the tariff and other questions will enter into the coming political struggle, it is probable that before election day the main issua will be as to the continuance of the pro* hibitory law in the state. fc President Harrison has seen fit to honor Iowa with the chief justiceship of the new court authorized by congress, called the court of private land claims; for that position he has named Hon. Joseph R. Reed, of Council Bluffs, who has served fifteen years as a district judge, four years as a supreme judge, and two years as a member of congress, beginning his career by serving four years as a state senator. Judge Reed is distinguished as a jurist, and was a classmate of President Harrison at college. He also distinguished himself in the war in command of the First Iowa battery. He is a man considerably past sixty years of age, and except for his age would have been appointed on the new circuit court authorized by songress. It has been supposed that the ingenuity of man had exhausted itself in instituting what has now taken the place of expositions known as palaces, but it seems that is not the case. The fruit growers and gardeners of Pottawattamie county will erect a palace at Council Bluffs comprised of fruits and vegetables. A dome-shaped building will be put up, 190 feet wide and 280 feet long, the height to be 100 feet. The building will be of wood, and covered with products of the soil both on tllte' outside an'd on the inside. There will be a square tower, with a steeple more than 50 feet higher than the main building. This palace wil] be a direct rival of the blue grass palace at .Creston; and Council Bluffs being so near to the fruit district of Mills county, a magnificent fruit display can be made by the cooperation of the fruit growers of the two counties. Something new in the way of bridge building is being erected at Des Moines, over the Des Moines river at the Walnut street crossing. The bridge is made of steel; has * 40-foot driveway, with foot walks on each side 14 feet wide, the walks being of cement. The bridge will be so constructed that wagons and carnages can trot across it; the fire companies can make their runs over the bridge with perfect safety. The old bridge at the Walnut street crossing has been out for more than a year, during which time this great bridge has been in progress. The new bridge will be the finest in the state, and when completed will be the twelfth bridge that spans the Des Moines river in the city of Des Moines. The recent statement made by the post office department shows that the gross receipts of- the post office in the city of Des Moines are more than the gross receipts of any other two Iowa offices. The same statement shows a greater proportionate increase at Des Moines than in any other western city. The latest report of clearing house receipts shows the Des Moines receipts increasing at a greater rate than those of any other western city, while the clearing house receipts oi Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis, St Paul and Wichita show a material fail- Tim "««mM«r season," inaugurated oy Manager McVicker, of McVleker'a theater, Chicago, has proved a financial as well as artistic success. Many standard plays have been produced, but none have been more acceptable to the public than "Blue Jeans." which will hold the boards for the next four weeks, and "The Soudan*" which will close this year's season. In "The Soudan" Louis James, the famous actor, will assume the role of "Major Temple," thus assuring the dramatic success of that spectacular English melodrama.
