Douglas, son of the great "Little Giant," will deliver the Fourth of July oration at Fort Dodge. In connection with the Columbian world's fair a movement has been started to have all the schools in tho country celebrate Oct. 12 as Columbus' day This idea has been started early and the indications are that it will be made a great feature of tho celebration, as in this way thousands will be able to help in some measure who wou 1 d have no part in the exercises of tho year. It is tho design of the Iowa Columbian commission to procure and place on exhibition at the world's fair at Chicago i complete library of books by Iowa authors. The special work of collecting this library has been assigned to Henry Stivers of Des Moines, Iowa, member of iho commission for the Seventh district. All persons knowing of any person in towa who has written and published a jook or pamphlet upon any subject will confer a favor upon the commission and matorally advance the enterprise by sending the names and addresses of authors or their representatives to Henry Stivers, Des Moines, Iowa. THE BOIES BOOMLET. It Was a Sickly Tiling At Ucst-A Case of Mucli Cry nud Little Wool As the Uovll Said. The democratic Chicago Herald gives away the Boies boomers in the unkind- ist manner known to that organ of the unterrifled. Before tho convention voted it said the Boies boom was tired and added: "The keepers of tho little thing had a weary, two-for-a-cent look and there was evident preparation to wrap it in some loft over numbers of the Argus and lay it away in salt, salt tears." It then goes on to depict some of the leaders: Col. Fred Lehman appeared in the afternoon with the same seersucker that he has worn for two days, the perspiration standing out on him like the freckles on an alligator. He was hot, furious, and a little bit ugly. The cautious Col. Witmer, who has become known as tho apostle of caution, was calm and placid, and still hanging to the theory that if Mr. Cleveland was not nominated on the first ballot Mr. Boies certainly would be on the second. Witmer calmly put this out all tho afternoon, until people who had read all about Captain Cuttle and Jack Bunsby began to smile. Nobody could convince Witmer that the jig was up and that Ueveland already had on the first ballot more than enough to nominate him. iol. Hunter of Des Moines was nervously excited and furiously .hot. Hunter said that he would like to have the Herald publish just a few more arguments in favor of Governor Boies, but the practical Colonel Martin said: "Oh, come off." Judge Campbell was flying around, first in the convention in the morning and at headquarters'in the afternoon, proclaiming that if Col. John P. Irish of California, had only been allowed to get in his work on behalf of Iowa the situation would have been different. The judge, however, was a little off, for Colonel Irish was not only not invited 10 proselytize for the Iowa candidate, aut he was refused a proxy to the convention, which he very much wanted. This, by the way, was the subject for merriment at the California headquarters. It was said there that Colonel Iz'ish never could attain any influence in any national convention until lie put on a necktie. Colonel Henry C. Shaver is another among those who are last to lose hope. The colonel sat in room 19 yesterday dictating his last sad wails to a call- graph operator. Colonel Shaver was evidently overcome with dissapoint- ment and the heat. His dictation was slow, uncertain and almost painful. He seemed to have little to say and still less to express. In fact the entire atmosphere of the Iowa place was one of fatigue and disappointment. The boom was still there, but it resembles a fish which has lain on the grass for live minutes and is yet gasping, or that serpent's tail which is known to wiggle ifter death until sundown. There is one thing that the Iowa boomers and leaders have realized at last, and that is there is such a thing as overdoing a boom. They realize that instead of 10,000 people there should have boon no more than one- fourth that number brought to Chicago. The streets have boon filled with people who had no influence and no voice in council. They have impeded tho channels of influence; they have been in the way of real workers; they have ob structed the rooms of the Iowa dele 1 gates; they have clamored for tickets of admission until those in authority are almost sick; they have not boon able to influence a single delegate from another state; it has boon simply show, noise, and Boles; all of it profitless and In this heat exasperating. However commendable the spirit of tho Iowa democracy j n aen di n g aueh „ legion here itis candidly admitted by the lead.ei-8. thaUuUy one-half of it Js In the wa;- which is supposed to carry people to heaven. Mr. Kelly declared that the case was not ended. He insisted upon it that there were 100 votes pledged to the Boies candidacy. Mr. Kelly is said to be talking through his hat, for outside of the Iowa headquarters there does not seem to be a single Boies voice in the air except it bo that of Henry Wattorson. Dr. Likes of Des Moines is in much the same frame of mind that actuates Boss Kelley. He cannot understand any condition of atmosphere outside of the Iowa, nimbus. Ho lives and breathes In Iowa atmosphere; ho has scarcely been out of his room for three days. He came in heated from the convention yesterday and then somebody lured him put to see the Iowa parade. He came in sadly mopping his brow and remarked to Colonel Martin: "Colonel, I'm afraid we are busted." Dr. Likes was pretty nearly correct, and if there had aeon any doubt about it his observation }f tho Iowa parade would have convinced him. Though there are known to be it least 8,000 Iowa shoutors in town, lot 500 of them appeared in yesterday's mriida. The Iowa State band with iheir waiter jackets had the procession almost to themselves. Tho Iowa people will not vote for Mr. loveland under any circumstances; they will stick to their candidate to tho ast, and with tho aid of Colonel Henry Wattorson's vote from Kentucky, will make their voices heard down tho cor- idors of time. DAMAGED BY STOBMS. Neighboring Counties tiro Torn Up by Wind iind Hall—liixd Blow Last Week. Sunday, a week ago, proved a disastrous day for many localities, while in Kossuth about all it brought was a heavy shower. , In tho north end the Bancroft Register reports some causalities and more Monday. Tom. Bloor had a horse killed by lightning, and John Bowenhadono driven into a fence and cut to pieces. Monday John E. Peterson had his house blown over north of Bancroft, and his daughter's arm was broken. Other people had machinery scattered, and light damage done. A few reports from neighboring points are as follows: BOAT SUNK AT CLEAR LAKE. Clear .Lake Express: During the storm which rngod violently in this city for a few moments last Sunday afternoon considerable damage was done to trees in different parts of Clear Lake, as well as to yachts and boats on the lake. The gale struck the steamer Burt, belonging to Green and Chamberlain, while it was yet several hundred feet from the shore, capsized and sunk it speedily in water of a depth sufficient to cover all but a small portion of the smoke stack. Fortunately indeed not more than three lives wore jeopardized by the disaster. By dint of great courage, Capt. E. E. Green, Mr. Hayward and Frank Price, who alone were aboard the sunken craft, saved their lives by swimming ashore amid the contending elements of driving wind and water. Tho steamer was hauled in by horse power Monday and Tuesday of this week. FUNERAL PROCESSION STOPPED. Renwick Time's: A terrific wind and rain storm struck Renwick Sunday afternoon about 3:30. A funeral procession got a terrific drenching, and but for the shelter of a willow hedge the hearse and carriages would have been overturned. Geo. Jones, five miles west of Goldfield, had a barn torn from its foundation and smashed. Fourteen head of horses were in tho barn and were buried in the ruins. Some were badly hurt but will live. The storm also took the windmill this morning. Further damage was done, but have no particulars. DRENCHED IN DICKENSON COUNTY. Milford Mail: Several of ourcitizens who were out riding Sunday afternoon were detained at various places by the furious storm of hail and rain, but they came straggling back to town Monday forenoon. They all report plenty of broken window glass. Selections from Harrison. When hopes go out of the heart and life becomes so hard that it is no longer swaet, men are not safe neighbors and they are not good citizens. If I were to select a watch word that I would have every young man write above his door and on his heart, it would be the good word "Fidelity." I pity a man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces the cloth or shapes it into a garment shall starve in the process. If no ill happens to you that I do not wish and all the good comes to you that I do wish in your behalf, your lives will be full of pleasantness and peace. I believe that our legislation should be as broad as our territory, should not bo for classes, but should be always in the interest of all our people. The captain who gives to the sea his cargo of goods that lie may give safety and deliverance to his imperiled fellowmen has fame; he who lands the cargo only wages. I hope that narrow sentiment that regards tho authority of the United States or its officers as alien or strange has once and forever boon extinguished in this land of ours. It is quite worth while, I think, for those who are charged with great pub- lio affairs now and then to turn aside from the routine of official duties and look into the faces of the people. Let us divide upon tariff and finance, but let there never be a division among American people upon this question, S nowhere shall the law be over* .,.,/,. in the intorestof anybody.
