The old state house was milt in 1850 and first occupied in 1867 by the general assembly of this then oung state. It was erected by an 101* n-ovement company as a speculation or the purpose of getting the capital ocated in Des Moines. J. B. Stewart, Stewart Goodrell, James Williamson, Scott and others had a hand in the en- erprise, and were nearly ruined by it, jut were afterwards partially reimbursed by the state. The building was iriginall'y built by John Hyde, and was 'emodeled, reroofcd, and anew founda* ion put in by S. A. Robertson in 1873. Within its precincts fifteen general as- ernblios held sessions, regular and ox. It witnessed the legislation of the var time, the election of Grimes and ther distinguished senators, the in- uguration of many famous governors, ho capture of Auditor Brown by tho nilitin, and other stirring events of owa history. It was vacated eight 'ears ago in favor of tho fine now cap- tol and has since been an excrescence, ind was recently doomed to demolition o give way to tho proposed soldiers' nonuniont. Tho executive council had •cfused an otter of §5,000 for tho build- ng and grounds. Tho state librarians held a big and uccoBsful meeting at Des Moinos last tveek. The Sioux City Journal says that ho Pullman Sleeping Car company, hrough tho railway companies over vhose lines its cars run, has at last commenced to pay taxes. For seven 'ears in Iowa tho taxes have been do- inquent, and the present payment therefore involves a large amount of accrued penalties. The taxes have >een paid in Polk county, and this is . ,aken to indicate that the fight on the mrt of tho company is abandoned and .hat soon the amounts due in each county will be settled. This is a, great ictory for the state, and is particular- y gratifying to the attorney general, John Y Stone. Atlantic claims the largest corn canning factory in the world. It will pack 2,000,000 cans this year. A queer appliance in dairy machinery at the state fair was the "cow milker," a machine for milking cows, owned by Hoover & Jay of Hubbard, !owa. The machine was closely inspected by every visitor, and a new lope lighted up the countenances of nany Iowa men and women. Mr. 3!oover, the patentee, learning that there was a Register man in the hall, approached him with a demand for 110,000. He explained that as a care- "ul reader of the weekly Register for many years, he noticed at one time in 1888 a proposition from Father Clarkson offering tho above amount to anyone who would invent a machine that would milk a cow quicker than a six- mpntha-old calf. This offer he had lipped from the Register, and today is sanguine over the success of his unique and wonderful invention. The machine works by an air exhauster, which "urnishes tho power of double suction, which creates continuous suction. Power can be had by means of steam, electric, horse, etc. One horse power s sufficient to milk fifty cows. The system provides for an iron pipe of whatever length desired, with rubber lose connections. These connections are attached to aa air-tight bucket, which is strapped to the cow. From ;he bucket four small pieces of rubber iubes, teat cups which, when placed, the machine starts, and the milk flows. The republican state central commit- ;ee has arranged for three speeches in towa by Gov. McKinley, and five from Son. J. C. Burrows. Hon. Ben But- ;erworth will also be in the state, speaking four times. Burrows will speak at Eldora and Mt. Pleasant, Wm. Murray of Belle Plaino has commenced suit in the superior court ;o recover $90,000 of the Chicago and Northwestern road. His petition states that from 1875 to 1891 he was shipping bogs, cattle, and grain from Belle Plaine to Chicago, on which the road charged him $25 more per car than it charged other shippers, notably the Burlington road, and thereby took from him $90,000 more than was due, and which he now seeks to recover. Tho case comes up in September and will probably be taken at once to the federal court. It is attracting much interest, especially among shippers, and will be closely followed to the end, Gov. Boies will open the democratic campaign at Missouri Valley next week Thursday. At a reunion of the Delaware County Veteran association, held Wednesday at Manchester, tho platform erected for the speaker gave way and all those who occupied it fell a distance of ten feet. Col. D. B. Henderson, the principal speaker, sustained severe injury in the only leg he has. He made his speech, but was compelled to finish it sitting in a chair. He came to Dubuque Tuesday evening, and was unable to fulfill his engagement at Richardsville on Thursday. He will be laid up for some time. At Goo, 15. Marble's, Hurt.
