Tho Davcnunrt Democrat recently published letters from nineteen prominent Iowa democrats, giving their opinions us whether tbo anti-silver letter of G rover Cleveland will add to or detract from his strength us a presidential nomination. Flvo of them think it would not bo safe to nominate him and thirteen of them are somewhat indefinite in their opinions, hoping, however, that something may turn up which will raider Mr. Cleveland accoptablo to the silver democrats of tho west and south. ____^_ Tho state superintendent of public instruction, Mr. Subin, has received from tho French authorities tho gold modal awarded to tho state of Iowa for superiority of educational exhibit In tho Paris exposition of 1880. Tho exhibit was not of tho school work but of tho school system and for sup or-oxccllonco in tho educational system from the district, through tho township, county, and stato iirrangemont, the medal was awarded. It is an elegantly finished circle of gold, a quarter inch thick and three inches iu diameter. Upon ono side appear in relief tho figures of a man and woman, tho former receiving a crown from the hand of tho other, and tho words, " Exposition Universollo." On tho other side of tho modal is the figure of a man and the words, " Kepubli<iuo Franeaiso; Etat D'lowa, Department do L'lnstruotlou Publiquo." It is intended to construct an easel or a standard upon which to rest tho medal in order that it may bo shown to tho best ad- vautugo. It is tho finest thing of tho kind ever awarded to tho stato. Fuller arc given as sure winners for tho land court appointment, but only ono of them can get It. Stone, however, retains his deputy commisslonsiilp of general land offices, while Fuller has plenty of private business to attend to. Nevertheless the foreshadowed apoointments may bo made. They are at least possibilities. The Hotel Orleans at. Spirit Lake has for the past four or fives years been leased to different parties and the result has not been satisfactory to the company. In fact they have lost money. Consequently they decided to run tho hotel themselves, employing someone to manage it for them. W. J. Morrison, private secretary for president Ivcs, has been selected to manage the hotel the coming season. Ho has had con siderablo to do with running tho hotel In times past and is fully competent to tnke- the management.

A movement has been started at the stato university, at. Iowa City, to found iv German library which is to bo placed under proper management and made accessible to all lovers of tho literature of the language. There arc many reasons why such an undertaking should meet with popular favor, and thoro is certainty no reason' why it should not bo successfully carried out. Tlio 1!M,0(X) native Germans in Iowa will no doubt assist to tho extent of their power in so noble a work. Tho DCS Moines woman suffragists havo boon noUllcd that Mrs. Potter Palmer, president of tho board of lady managers of tho World's Fair commission, has invited tbo National American Woman Suffrage association to moot in Chicago in 181)!), and promised tho uso of a hall with a seating capacity of 5,000.
