Machine «tot retausftnr f*p, Prof. Samuel Calvin of the state university has been elected state geologist and will have charge of the state geo- ogical survey. Mr. Calvin is professor of geology and biology, and has filled .hat office for about 15 years. During lis connection with the university he has built up the reputation of the insti- .ution as regards this line of instruc- .ion. He is a brilliant instructor. The ommission considered the advisability of proffering to Prof. Calvin this posi- .ion, and by unanimous vote so decided, vlthough there is as yet no positive cnowledgo that ho will accept, but it is bought that he will do so. The commission fixed the salary of the state geologist at $2,500 per year, out of which ie must pay his personal expenses of ho survey. ______ The railroad commission has been called upon to goto Lake Okobojl to investigate a complaint by the citizens of .he town. They declare that the Milwaukee railroad has been filling up the ake with stone, sand and dirt for pur- >ose of enlarging its yards and has .hereby made the lake smaller, and also making it unfit for rowing. Several other reasons are given, andtheOkobo- i people insist that they will make trouble for the road unless something s done to prevent this thing. At the judicial convention of this district last week W. S. Bemis of Clay iounty was elected temporary chairman and H. L. Galpin of Buena Vista county temporary secretary.

A committee of the State Temperance alliance, consisting of J. A. Harvey, Hi Elliott, B. O. Aylesworth, Aaron 'uster, John J. Hamilton, Allan Clarke and Mrs. A. E. McMurray, have issued an address absolving prohibitionists rom voting the republican ticket in [owa, charging that the party has gone jack on prohibition by its silent plat- :orm and the nomination of A. B. Cummins. The address urges prohibition- .sts to vote as they please and to en- ! orce the prohibitory law. Republican candidates for district presidential electors are: First, W. M. Walker of Van Buren; Second, has. Lewis of Johnson; Third, C. E. Albrook of Hardin; Fourth, H. P. Hancock of Fayette; Fifth, H, Stone of Marshall; Sixth, B. F. Carroll of Davis; ieventh, E. R.

John A, Kasson will lecture before John Hopkins university on " European Diplomacy." At a meeting of the democratic state central committee held at Des Moines Aug. 17 was agreed upon as the date and Davenport the place of the democratic state convention. The United States department of agriculture has sent out a report on sugai beets. Three hundred and twenty-two samples were received from Iowa, representing 61 counties. The mean con tent of sugar in the samples was 11.85 and the mean weight of the beets 30 ounces. From Marshall county were received 34 samples, showing an aver age content of 11.54 of sugar in the beet and an average weight of 21 ounces From Muscatine county were receivec 33 samples, showing 14.10 per cent, o: sugar in the best and an average weigh of 36 ounces. This is a magnificion showing, and indicates that in this county the beets have been cultivated in Accordance with the directions sem or that the soil of the opvmty is eepe suited to the growth of the sugai beet. There is only one sample among the whole number that can be considered as poor, while many of them are above the average in richness. It cannot be that, among so many samples, jood results are due to accident. This?* ty-ono samples were received f rom Scott county, showing an average of sugaf in ;he beet of 12.63 and an average weight of 20 ounces. Nineteen samples were received from Dallas county, showing an average of 11.96 of sugar in the beet and an average weight of 23 ounces. This is also an encouraging result,. Sightcon samples were received from Allamakoo county, showing an average content of sugar in the beet of 12.64, and an average weight of 40 ounces. This must also bo regarded as a high content of sugar, considering the excessive size of the boots. The above com- )risos all the counties sending a large number of samples. Many of the coun- .ies sending a smaller number of sam- plesshow excellent results, but of course ho greater reliance must bo placed on hose counties from which the larger numbers of samples wasTecoived. The Twenty-fourth general assembly jroposes to indulge in a reunion at Spirit Lake, Aug. 0. Senator Funk s chairman of the committee on ar- •angoments. Tho state officers are to >e among the guests. There will be a mock session, fish and game dinner. • boating, fishing and other amusements. Mr. O. E. Shannon is chairman of the oress committee. The fish commissioner will make an exhibit of the work he ias done on the occasion, and the steam)oat companies place their boats at the disposal of the reunion. Mason City has voted a two per cent, tax for the Chicago Groat Western •ailway, and will vote a three per cent, .ax for a connection with the Forest City road to Armstrong, This will ;ive Mason City six railways. The New York papers have reports about the doings of a delegate to the Christian convention from Iowa. His name is Wm. F. Powell of Indianola. So intended to make his headquarters with the Iowa delegation at the Everett louse, but stopped in many saloons on .he way and finally fell in with Julia and Lilian Wood, who are also known to the policeasthe "Cornell sisters." They undertook to show him something of the city, and after taking two or three drinks at his expense, piloted him into Nineteenth street. When near Third avenue they suggested that he sit down and rest in a doorway. He did so, and while one cajoled him the other seized his pocketbook, containing $60 and papers of considerable value. C. W. Williams has telegraphed that Allerton would appear on the Mason ity track during the September races to lower the two-mile record. A man 110 years old died near Cedar Rapids last week. Ho came to Iowa in 1840. A committee has been appointed by the Dubuque board of trade to prepare an exhibit for the city at the world's fair. In this exhibit the mines and manufactures will be represented. There is a great deal of enthusiasm over the matter, and it is expected a creditable display will bo made. Specimens from the lead and zinc mines and spar caves will make a handsome show. Senator Funk sizes up the congressional situation. Gear in the First, Henderson in the Third, Hull in the Seventh, and Dolliver in the Tenth, have been nominated to congress by acclamation by the republicans. In the Fourth district the situation is very indefinite. There are no active candidates. Hon. J. E. Blythe of Cerro Gordo and ex-Congressman Updegrafl of Clayton are being put forward by their friends. It seems probable that R. G. Cousins, a bright young lawyer of Cedar county, will be the nominee in the Fifth. Major Lacy, of Mahaska, will knock out Fred White in the Sixth. Col. Hepburn seems to be the coming man in the Eighth. In the Ninth it is everybody's race at this stage of proceedings. In the Eleventh Geo. D. Perkins will be renominated by acclamation. The republicans have a fighting chance to eloct 10 congressmen in Iowa this fall. They will certainly gain several districts. Iowa's new voting law has already caused trouble, although the law has not been tried. In the federal court, Eisner's Patent Folding Booth company of Jefferson City, Mo,, has brought suit for infringment of patent against the H. P. Brammor Manufacturing company of Davenport, Iowa. Plaintiff asks an injunction restraining defendant from making the booths and for damages. ,^ — liucklen's Arnica Salve.
