Germain Denis has written a letter from Paris to Gov. Boies inquiring whether Julion Dubuque, grand uncle of the writer, left a will in favor of his family. The governor can only answer that ho doesn't know and that it doesn't matter much whether Julien left n, will or not, inasmuch as he left tio considerable estate. By virtue of a treaty with the Fox Indians, made in 1788, he claimed all the lands for a distance of nine miles west of the river from the Little Maquokota on the north to Totes dos Morts, Jackson county, on the south. The supremo court, in the Jhnutonu case, decided against his The two sharpers, who look over ?1,000 out of the gullible homestead hunters at DOS Moinos, got off without in indictment. The evidence didn't warrant holding them for swindling.

In Mary township, Boone county, ten miles from Boone, has lived for a number of years Elias Philips a hard character. Philips has been in the habit of goipg home drunk and abusing UJs wife and children, at one time even going so far as to hang his wife, and only outline hor down when her face had turned black and she was nearly choked to death. A week ago ho again came homo drunk and beat and clubbed his wife and threatened to kill her and tho baby, which was in bed with hor. Tho father, mother and baby were abed in one room while in tho only other room In tho house the six remaining children of tho family were sleeping. Tho oldest was William, a crlpplo of 14. Ho became terribly excited when his father threatened to kill tho baby, and said to his little sister: "If ho kills tho baby I will kill him." There was an old musket in tho room which tho boy got out, and then looked through tho door into tho room whore his father was carrying on his abuse. Finally tho baby screamed out as If being hurt and tho boy fired tho gun into his father, several buckshot going clear through Ills lungs. Accompanied by a little brother, William hid in an outhouse and was found there by an ofllcor In tho morning. Ho was bound over to tho grand jury and Is now in jail at Boono. Tho father made an anti-mortom statement in which ho tried to shield tho boy as much as possible. Tho state labor commissioner, Mr. Sovereign, has submitted a part of his biennial report to tho governor. There lire throe departments to tho shoots ilroady referred to Mr. Boles. Tho first is tho recommendations of tho commissioner and the general Introduction. Tho second is relative to corn statistics; tho third is a report of wages earned by workingmon in all linos and kindred matters. Mr. Sovereign suggests that tho labor bureau bo empowered to establish a free employment agency and that tho report of the commission bo made annual instead of biennial as at present. The loss in Iowa corn crops is made by tho report to bo estimated at $04,319,709" from 1880 to 1890. In but two of tho 10 years was a profit made on the crops. From reports from 1,171) farmers Mr. Sovereign estimates tho .iverago cost of raising corn per acre, which he made $10.33. Thirty-four bushels are found to bo the average yield, making the cost of raising corn 30 cents a bushel. The ten years upon which tho estimates are made for tho general loss do not include 1890. In an interview with a Now York Tribune reporter Senator Allison predicts a grand republican victory in Iowa this year. In tho course of tho interview ho said: " Matters in our state are good and the people are generally prosperous. When things are that way it is not a good year for democratic success in our state." The state temperance alliance is at work preparing to re-submit tho amendment case to the supremo court with a view to having the court in effect re- verso its former ruling, by which tho prohibitory amendment to the constitution was declared to bo unconstitutional. The alliance managers claim to have discovered now and important points in the case that will give them another hearing and final victory. They are confident the amendment will yet bo declared to be constitutional and in full force and effect. Tho outcome of tho case is watched with a lively and increasing interest, for if the temperance alliance people triumph it will take tho liquor question away from tho legislature and place It beyond tho reach of parties and politicians, thus preventing the repeal of tho prohibitory law except through tho medium of and amendment to the constitution by the people of tho state as a whole. Tho grand army veterans of Iowa are getting ready for a grand outing at Detroit during the fifth week in August. A great many regimental reunions are being arranged for during the time of the national encampment.
