IOWA, UTBt NEWS COHDEHSRD, ' TKUS editor says: "Man is ft fool ' w-eman is thrown in for goodmeas- -,.«<)•'' There will be no use for the -woman Jbfan that editor is fannaterred. ..... TB» citizens' reform movement in New ^f ttfc has taken unto itself a name- 'The B'S Municipal League," and the "' watchword is "Municipal government is business, not politics." A DECENNIAL appraisement of land values has been made by Ohio state officers, and, Without, exception, we are told, a remarkable decrease in the value of farm lands is shown. The gains in wealth' and population since 1880 have been made almost exclusively in the cities. Wayne ' county, for example, which is one of the best agricultural counties in the state, located close by Cleveland and other large towns, and possessing almost unlimited facilities of railway transportation, shows a decline in farm land values from $16,423,000 in 1880 to 814,000,000 in 1890. The decline in the market value of these lands has been from $12 to $20 on acre. ' THE correspondence between Secretary Elaine and the British government regarding the alleged illegal seizure of British vessels makes interesting reading. It gives a good idea of the dignified amenities of diplomatic life and of the zeal displayed by each official to maintain and protect the rights and honor of his own country. The principal feature of the series of letters, however, is the charge ' frankly made by the American secretary of state that Canadian interests are at the bottom of the entire trouble and that if it had not been for the interference of our neighbor the matter might have been adjusted without any friction. Mr. Blaine does not attempt to disguise his sentiments, but in forcible and unambiguous terms reviews the course of the British authorities and points out in what respect they have been unwise and unjust. His letters reflect the true American spirit. They are fearless and patriotic. And every loyal American has reason to praise the secretary for his firm and manly attitude. AN illustration of the remarkable commercial growth of New York is furnished by noting the rapidty with which the residence section is being driven northward. Tlie changes along Fifth avenue below the park have frequently been pointed out, and the fact, too, that Madison avenue, so long the center of residences of the city's solid men, is beginning to be invaded- but the most astonishing development is on Broadway above the Thirty-fourth street junction with Sixth avenue. Hardly a week passes that sales are not recorded in that section up to the Boulevard, and recent operations by careful investors gives color to the idea that commercial business is some day to go beyond Fifty-ninth street. The .real estate market in New York is therefore uncommonly active this summer, many brokers giving up their usual vacation in order to be on hand to get hold of eligible property. It is expected that the real eslale market will be large and brisk this autumn. New York with its growth in commercial and manufacturing enterprises is getting to be a pretty small place for residence purposes, and the suburban districts are consequently enjoying also an unprecedented boom. UNTIL within a few years it was true that the luxury of one generation was the necessity of the next. Now it is equally true that the luxury of one decade becomes the necessity of the next. So it is with the writing machine—at first a sort of plaything, a graphic curiosity—then a necessity for business houses tor the novelist, the special writer, and, in fact, for all men'.of ideas. Of course, this proposition will be denied by some; since the beginning of the world there never was a patent fact that was not denied or ignored by some that wished to be original and could find no olher means of being so than by general denial or admitted fact. As regards the writing machine, its use is in the first place less harmful, less tiresome to the body and mind, and more fruitful of results lhan Ihe use of the pen or pencil. The writer does not have to bend over a table, contracting his chest and diminishing the capacity of his lungs, making himself round-shouldered, getling writer's cramp and being choked by his collar. There is a freer flow of blood to Ihe brain, and consequently a freer flow of ideas from the brain. In the next place, the machine is a time-saver. The mair that can write thirty words a minute with his hand for an hour or two is a rarity, but one does not have to be very expert with his writing machine to double or triple his oulput. A carrier's thoughls always oulrun Ihe power to record them, and always will until some inventor makes a machine for recording ideas as they well up from the foundalion of thought. As Opie Read, a distinguished writer, says: We have machines for harvesting our grain, why not have and use machines for harvesting our intellectual grain? GENERAL ttOfES.

It doesnt seem possible that anywhere else can be found snCh restful expanses of green meadows and postures beside ntill waters, such sleek, fat contented horses and cattle grazing in them, such heat, well-kept hedges, such wealth of red and white hawthorn bloom, such picturesque cottages bowered in ivy and roses, and such magnificent oaks, elms and beeches, the crowning glory of old England. It is a land of soPid comfort, where everything seems to have been finished and nothing is left to do but just to keep it running and enjoy an elegant leisure. Iherearo want and sorrow and vice enough in the cities, and it may be that many of the peasants and miners have a hard lot, but tho impression given to every stranger traveling through rural England is that of a country of nneqimled beauty and There is something wonderful about the trees. The soil and climate neom perfectly adapted to them, and _they are found everywhere, along tho highways and dotting tho fields so that all England seems a great park. Then they grow to such an enormous size, with such dense and Inxur- nnt foliage and graceful shape that even old acquaintances will scarcely bo recognized in their regal dress here. After one has walked through the grand trees of Windsor Forest, Hampton Court and hp- ing Forest, lie will bo almost inclined to confess that ho has never seen real trees before. Another almost unconscious feeling of pleasure a person will feel in traveling here is the evidence of wcalHi and power visible on every side, the number of large cities so close together, and tho splendid railway service, with Iho hundred* of trains crowded with peopto well dressed and prosperous, the signs of great manufactures and commerce and Iho abundance of mcnoy. A man may not be able to set his hands on much of this British gold, but after using for months in southern countries dirtv. ragged paper money, which is at n discount of 5 to 20 per cunt., it is a source of colid gratification to see heaps of gold in the banks shoveled about like wheat or weighed like coal, and one will involuntarily (latter himself with the thought that by and by he may be fortunate enough to get some of it.

Arnaon, proprietor of a "bank and passage office," and Lou's Silikowitz, his soliciting agent. Their victims have always been among tho very poorest and most ignorant. The method employed by these precious rascals was to go among the recently arrived Russian and Polish immigrants anxious to bring their relatives lo Ihis country, und sell them, on the instalment plan, railroad and steamship tickets from various obscure and far-away places to America. When all the hard-earned money had been paid over the tickets were furnished the purchaser and sent to the absent relatives in Europe. The railroad ticket was good to Hamburg, which was always named as the embarking port, but the steamship tickets were fraudulent, und wore invariably dishonored by the obatonsiblc agent of Arnson at Hambuig. Of course, the unfortunates were left destitute at Hamburg, while their relatives on this aide spent many anxious days wondering why their loved ones did not come. Arnson always had some smooth story to tell whenever they went to him for information, promising that he would make it till right. The victims finally got tired of his promises, which were never fulfilled, and determined to take matters into tbeir ownhanda. A mob of several hundred Russians iind Polish Hebrews gathered in front of his "bank" on Canal street Saturday night, and it would have gone hard with Arnson und Silikowitz; had not the pojice arrived just in time. They found the two skulking cowards hiding behind a counter, and, they were marched to ollowed WASHINGTON. TUB tariff bill will be laid aside till Ihe river and harbor measure is disposed of.

WASHINGTON July 29.—The president has sent to congress a special message on Ihe subject of lotteries. He says that the recent attempt to secure a charter from the state of North Dakota for a lottery company, pending the effort to obtain from the state of Louisiana a renewal of Iho charier of the Louisiana slate lottery, and the establishment of ono or more lottery companies at the Mexican towns near our border, have served a good purposu of calling Ihe public attention to an evil of vast proportions. Continuing the president says that if the baneful effects of lotteries were confined to the slates that gave the companies corporate power and license to conduct business, the citizens of other states, being powerless to apply legal remedies, might clear themselves of tho responsibility by Ihe use of such general agencies as were within their reach, bul Ihe case is not so. Tho people of all the states are debauched and defrauded. The vast sums of money offered to . states for charters, are drawn from the people of the United States and the general government, through the mail system, is made an effective and profitable medium of iuter- couise between the lottery company and its victims. The use of the mails is quite as essential to the companies as the stale license. It would be practically impossible for companies to exist if the public mails were once effectually closed against their advertisemenls and remittances. 1 he use of the mails by these companies is a prostitution of an agency only intended to servo the purpose of legitimate trade and decent social intercourse. Tho presi- detil concludes by urging the enactment of such l,ws as will absolutely prevent the use of the mails by lottery companies. A letter from the postmaster general accompanies the message in which tbn inadequacy of Ihe present postal lavs to meet Ihc einerj^K!yJs_]»inted out. THU HACKS fNTKUI'KHEU WITH.

The republicans voting in the ulHnnutivo wore: Cam- oron, Ingulls, Mauderson and Spoouer. Mr. Cockrell was Ihe only democratic senator who voted in the negative. Ihe senate iherefore resumed consideration of tho bill for tho transfer of Ihe revenue marine from Iho treasury department Iu Ihu navy, und Mr. Oockroll eonlmued his argument in opposition to it, bul before il was finished Ihe tariff bill was taken up, and Mr. Vest spoko against it, a motion to recommit thu uimwuro was defeated by a strict party voto, aud it was considered i.ection by section.

House.— Mr. McCoiiM of Maryland, called np the conference report on Ihe Dis- Iricl Columbia! appropriation bill.

After the debute, the conference report was agreed to, and Iho house wont into committee of the whole on Ihe senate amendment to the sundry civil bill.

Senate.—Nr. I''rye slated thai Ihe river aud harbor bill would bo taken up next Friday. Thn conference report on Ihe District of Columbia bill was agreed to. The tariff bill was then taken up and Mr. McPherson moved to make the rale on extracts of licorice four cents a pound, the amendment of the finance committee being to reduce it from six lo five cents. The usual political discussion f o lowed, in the course of which Mr. Aldrich said that the Mills bill originally proposed a duty of four cents on licorice paste, but when it was found thai Ihfi men engaged in that business wore democrats tlw rate was increased to five centt. Mr Vest denied this statement. Mc- Phorson's motion was finally rejected by the usual parly vote und Ihe committee amen Inn-nt was agreed to. Mr. Mcl'licr- son wanted the duty on castor oil reduced from 50 to 2f> cents | or gallon, but Mr. Plumb asked that it be increased to bO cents (present duty) and this was agreed to. The paragraph relating to opium was amended us recommended by tho finance committee lo make it read twelve instead of ten dollars per pound.

House.—In the house today Mr. Oales, of Alabama, rising to a question of pryi- ilego, offered u resolution tor Hie investigation of the churgo« of corruption against members of thu liouso, contained in a recent editorial in tho National Economist. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, con* tended that tho resolution did not lire- sent u question of privilege!. Tim charge made in thu editorial was imli-lmite. Mr. (irosvenor, of Ohio, thought that if thu house were to take cogm/.auco of Hut charge, although practically it was no charge, Ihe rcsolulion should he first sont to u committee. Mr. Rogers, of Arkaniies, said it was generally understood that thu speaker passod all tho bills in tho house, therefore, the charge was un inferential one against the speaker. Alter further discussion the speaker ruled that Ihe resolution was not u privileged ono. In doing so, he said Unit Dm newspaper editorial was of tho vaguest character.

England seems almost to monopoli/.e the carrying trade of the world, and from every known part of the globe her splendid ships arc bringing treasure and pouring it inlo her lap until she hardly knows what to do with her riches. This commerce makes her familiar with every land, and no place, even the most remote, seems foreign to her adventurous merchant* and capitalists. Just glance at tho columns of one of the leading morning impora of London lo see what varied and remote fields her capital seeks. In a fijnfflo issuis are prospectuses of companies in operation in or about lo be organized for iron mines in Spain, silver mines in Peru, Mexico and Utah, fertilizing material from the Falk- li-nd Islands, tin mines in Malay, coffee plantations in Sumatra and lirazil, water works in Australia, irrigation in Egypt, railways in China and Africa, tho purchase 'of flouring mills in Minneapolis, and of breweries in St. Louis, Peoria, La Crosse, St. Paul, Chicago and Rochester. Conservatism is said to be thn very essence and kernel of a Uriton, and we all know that be hangs to a time-honored custom, senseless as it may be, till Death compels him to let go, and looks on every American invention as n suggestion of the devil, but in commerce he is tho very personification of enterprise und daring, and the spirit of Drake, Kalei»li, Hawkins and Cook animates the British merchant man of to-day. At present there seems to bo an irrepressible rage for; investing in all sorts of trusts and combjnations in America that hold out a promise of monopoly in certain lines, and for turning all sorts of partnership businesses hero into joint stock companies. The papers teem with prospectuses of firms in every sort of business down to tho manufacture of patent medicines and horse liniment that are anxious to divide with tho dear public tho profitsof a business that is paying from 15 to 25 per cent, per annum, according to tho certificate of "Blank & Blank, chartered nccountmilH." It. would occur to almoel any mind, (,'ivwi to very superficial rotation, why should they be so ready lo share with Ufa-lingers a business so phenomenally profitable'! 1 and thn conclusion is almost in-flsisliblo that there is more profit in disposing of it to a company at their own price than in continuing it. The fever for investing in stocks ^of American brewery combinations is at its full height now, and almost anything, in that line can bn unloaded on Ihe capitalists hern. U will bo curious if among all these deals some of our English friends to not got their lingom badly burned by Uinii- Blnirp American cousins, and retire before many years and moro experience than capital. Perhaps the first sensation of pleasure one has m coming into an old and noted city like London and looking out of the cab window is to see posted up _ on the corners the names of street*! familiar from childhood, names that have figured in history and romance for centuries, and to know that they are actually horo and ono is looking at them with his own eyes. This is especially true of London, and as in Iho first short drive ono sees 'Ihroiul- neotllos'reet, Cornhill, Choapsido, Nowirato Rtreut, Ptttemoalor Row, Old llailoj, Meet street, Drary Lane und the Strand, how like old acquaintances they seom and what pleasure and almost feeling ot ownership an American feels in looking for _ Ihe first time on the Tower, London lirulgo, bt. IVil's and Westminster Abbey. It is well to savo London till near the end of a European trip, for it in the beat, und seeing this first would raino a standard that uncontc.iously take the highest zest of en- jovmont from many unolhnr Bight. 1'or inUunco, Windsor Palace is not only tho InrgoBt but the moat varied, picturesque and beautifully situated palace in Kuropo, and I he Albert Memorial Chapel is tho mosta'Hislie and spit-wild combination oi rare marbles and precious stones that can b j found. Not ovou the fur-famed clmpol of tilie Mcdecis in San Lorenzo tit }< lor- once, though containing moro absolute value, is so satisfactory, and this wonder of modern art proves that we havo not lost • the skill of mediaival Jdays. London has in St Paul's about the fourth largest cathedral in Iho world, and Westminster Abby one of Ihu most beautiful onus, and with its almost uumimborou tombs of England's groalest dead is a spot of sui passing interest, a place that one may visit atr.iiu and again aud Jovingly HiiKi-r to braitho its hallowed spirit.

"I was over in the old country recently, as you know," he continued, with a quiver on "his lips. "1 wont to Jenny Lind s homenml saw and talked with her husband. Mr. Goldschmidt, and her daughter and her grand-daughter, a»d they with me. As for the grave of Hie dear dead woman, it is marked by a monument in the shape of a cross. It is touching in its simplicty. But it b likelier in that respect. It is costly and unique. The grave is strewn with fresh (lowers every day, and most of those are sent down by the Goldschmidt family. "There are a number of fine portraits of the nightengale on the walls of Mr. Golcl- sclnnidt's home, and several fine marble busts. Her memory is perpetual to them in that house. Mr. Goldsnhmidl is a thorough penlleman, and talked with me about his dead wife in the tenderest way. I am sure he was sincere. And her daughter's voice was full of feeling when she spoke of 'poor mamma.' "How could anyone say that Jenny Lind's grave it neglected, and how could anyone say that she died broken hearted ? Her whole life was a song. Her last days were spent in singing for indigent clergymen. She was Iho most charitable woman that ever lived. I could make her cry in two minutes by telling-a story -of poverty, and sl.o always bucked her lears with a'purse full of money. His a mistake to say thn name of Jenny Lind rests solely on licr ability to sing. She was _a woman who would havo been ndored if she had had the voice of a cow. She was {.niilclcss, {,'reat-hcartnd, and her heart beat for the poor. She would have been known and loved if she bad never sung a note. TOLEDO, Ohio, July 31.—A most extraordinary condition of affairs prevails at Bairdstown. an oil village on the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, about twenty miles south of the city. It has had five incendiary fires within a week and every business house has been destroyed. Ihe alleged cause is this: Some time ago the authorities passed an ordinance forbidding tho sinking of any gas or oil wells within the town limits. Men who were holding town lots at big prices, hoping to sell them to oil men, thus found their aspirations checked. Remarks were made thai* "what is below the ground is more valuable than what is above it. A Cincinnati detective named Burkett went there n few days ago, and soon declared that the citizens were engaged in a conspiracy to burn the town. An indignation meeting was held, and tho excitement was so intense that a scheme was started to lynch him. Therefore on Monday night, he was taken from tho calaboose and taken to the woods, where a roi>e was placed around his neck. It is claimed that the object was simply to frighten tho fellow, but Mayor Nusbauin reached the scene of the lynching none too soon, as the young fellow was even then being "lifted. Half dead with fright, he begged piteously for mercy, and promised to leave tho town. Armed men are parading the streets to night to prevent further incendiarism, and men, women and children are in mortal terror for fear they will be compelled by firo to flee froni their homes at any moment. Every resident has his goods packed, reudy for emergencies. One man whase name is not given, woa arrested on suspicion to-night. At the last fire tnree, families barely escaped with their lives, and one merchant has packed his goods and moved three times in the past week on account of fire.

One who has known Bismarck for many years tells me that, however careful the old gentleman may bo of bis health now. he was not so in the earlier part of his career. But the inestimable boon of a splendid physique and iron constitution warranted him in certain excesses and in that indifferences which less robust men can't afford to practise. It is pretty well known that UK a young man Bismarck was exceedingly wild. When he wont courting the young lady whom be subsequently married, people wondered why his suit was favored, for the young lady herself was a model of piety, and her family was famed for dignity and austerity. But Fraulein Johanna would have the hiiruni-scarum folio.v. She Rcnmcd to have acted wisely, for Bismarck has made an aft'ectiomito husband and ho is proud to say that his wife has boon a great help to him. Bismarck has distinct notions about woman's sphere; ho detests a female politician, and ho has always made a practice of snubbing those women at court who nought to engage in political intrigue, for which-reason tho Russian and French ladies most cordially detest him. When the Geunan diet was hold at Frankfort Bismarck was sent ..hither as a representative of his state, and it was then, practically, that he had his first experience, in public life; it was then, too, llml ho began to be recognized as a power —at least as an influence.. At that limn ho went much into society, and the entertainments he gave at his homo in Frankfort were the most elaborate seen in thai capital. But bo allowed nothing lo interfere with his business duties. After these magnificent receptions, which lasted until far into tho night, 1m would hasten to his ftudy and write out his official dispatches; then be would vault upon his horse and go for a long gallop in tho cool air of thn early morning; then, after a bath in the river, lie would go home again and to bed for an hour or two, tinging betimos fresh and eager for another day of aelivo ser- vicn. Fran Bismarck is a famous housewife; hnr dinners have always been Ihe best, her homo bus always been a model of neatness and comfort, her children have been most judiciously roared, and us a hostess there is none in all the empire that can be compared with her. Expert with her needle, famous as a cook, an angel in the nursery and at tho fireside, skilled in all social graces and accomplishments, ro- niarkublc for her singular piety, and addicted lo benevolent practices and char- ilablu deeds, this lady is perhaps the inosl conspicuous example of womanly virtue that Germany affords. When Bismarck speaks of "woman s sphere" he has his wife's example in his mind, und the sphere be refers_ to is .is great and noblo as the example is illustrious and that wife lovable.

Woodmen of America is a mutual life insurahce body with a membership of about 40,000 chiefly in this state, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Kansas and Colorado. Last year there were rumors that some of the executive officers were engaged in defrauding the order. The slate auditor made an investigation. He found that the books were loosely kept, that a fraudulent dsath claim had been paid, and that the business was being badly managed. On his recom- niendalion the attorney general last February began suit in Wbiteside county lo oust the officers. The suit is still pending. Some days ago a bill was filed in the circuit court alleging that the officers wore seeking to evade the jurisdiction of the courts of this stale; that they hud called a meeting to bo held in Des_ Moines, la., on August 12lh next, at which it was proposed to surrender the Illinois charter of the body and to establish its headquarit in Iowa, and that tho accused officers proposed to remove the books and papers of Ihe corporation from this state. On this showing Judge Tathill yesterday issued an injunction which was suppressed for service until today, forbidding the holding of the proposed meeting in Des Moines, and restraining the officers from removing the books and papers, or copies of them, from this state, as proposed; also forbidding the suspension of any members prior to the regular meeting to be held in Springfield, November llth next.

'Pardon mo for making a correction,^ said Mr. Smith, laughing, 'but, if 1 make u specialty of anything, it is Immunity rather Hum divinity.'
