By dipping a lot of pennies into quicksilver they made a very fair imitation of the new silver dimes, and passed several of them on unsuspecting merchants. The silvered pennies became so numerous that the boys' plan was discovered and a couple of the youthful counterfeiters were arrested. Justice Hyatt read them a severe lecture, and after threatening the severest penalties of the law released the boys on their promise never to repeat the offense. _______ Senator Frye of Maine will make one speech in Iowa on Oct. 25. There is a prospect that Hon. John Sherman will speak at Davenport before the close of the campaign. The Post describes Iowa's veterans in the grand parade at Washington, and says: The department of Iowa, as it swung into line after Michigan, deserved and received its full share of applause and demonstration, on account of the distinctive and happy features displayed by the department and its fine appearance. The veterans marched with a swing and a dash that were very noticeable, and it was hard to realize that nearly thirty years previous these same men, or some of them at least, walked the same street, after having passed through one of the bloodiest conflicts of modern times. As a distinctive feature of this department each veteran carried a corn stalk in lieu of a musket. The idea was very happy, presenting, as it did, the representation of war and peace. Each one also carried an ear of corn attached to a ribbon, hanging on his left side, and also wore a fac simile of the same on his breast. One of the men carried a demijohn slung over his shoulders, and another a dead chicken, probably commemorative of some past foraging parties. Looking down the avenue the department presented the appearance of a corn field in motion, and it tickled the crowd immensely. Gen. Weaver, when interrupted at his meeting at Albany, Ga., blurted out that " if the people of the north could see what was going on at this meeting the north would be consolidated." include his military staff, the Iowa detail will consist of a provisional brigade under command of Brig.-Gen. W. L. Davis of Cedar Rapids commanding the Second brigade. This brigade will be composed of the First regiment, CoL F. W. Mahin of Clinton commanding 1 ) and the Second regiment, Col. P. W. McManus of Davenport commanding. The woman suffrage convention of the Mississippi valley assiciation ad" journed last Friday. The following officers were elected: President, Mrs. Estelle Smith, Fort Dodge; vice-president, Mrs. N. S. Bemis, Independence; corresponding secretary, Kathorine M.

He came to Independence this season and after a short acquaintance married one of the finest young ladies of the city belonging to one of the oldest and best families. There is a big strike of telegraphers on the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern road. The aim is to got the switchmen to strike also, but that is not likely. The management of the road claims to bo gaining strength daily and says there is nothing to bo feared if the operators will not cut the wires or intimidate the men. The depot building at Vinton was bombarded with eggs Saturday night. A number of the wires have been crossed and in some of the smaller places operators have been intimidated or stormed out, but all of the essential trains on the road are running and most of the business is going on.

KAKPEN & CO., 122 Quincy street, Chicago, 111. written in nrst-class companies, compiled the only large We have :_v£ap of Senator .Allison will take the stump in Iowa this fall, beyond a doubt. President Harrison has appointed Senator Allison, together with two other distinguished gentlemen, delegates to the international silver conference, which will be held in London next month, but Senator Allison has abandoned his intention to go to Europe, and will respond to the call of his party to make some republican speeches in this state. The dates and places have not as yet been decided upon, Chairman Blythe being now in telegraphic communication with the eminent Iowa statesman. Arrangements have also been made for several speeches in this state by Senator Prye of Maine. These gentlemen, together with McKinley and Tom Reed and our local talent, make an array of stumpers the democrats will be unable to cope with. _______ Port Dodge has decided not to buy the electric light plant, and will grant a franchise to the Thomson-Houston company. The city makes a five-year contract for lighting the street with arc lights to burn from dusk to daylight at the rate of $75 per lamp per year. Superintendent Knoapfler, of the department of public instruction, has issued a circular concerning the prize school exhibit to be given at Cedar Rapids, Dec. 27 and 29. Cash prizes aggregating $300 will bo given by the Iowa Columbian commission. The purpose of the prize exhibit is to stimulate more schools to make an effort in this line than otherwise would be, in order that better matter may be obtained for the Chicago exhibit. A TEREIBLE BAILWAY COLLISION. Trains Collide Kast of Charles City, Killing Six Men. New Hampton was the scene of an appalling wreck just before noon Saturday, resulting in killing six men and fatally injuring several more. A way freight on the Chicago & Great Western railway was backing upon the main, line, a wild freight expected having been reported an hour late. The wild made up nearly all this time, however, but no notification was given the way freight. The wild came in about 15 miles an hour and the way freight was backing up at the same speed. The engineer of the wild saw the situation, reversed his engine, and with the fireman jumped, both escaping uninjured. The locomotive dashed into the caboose and literally reduced it to kindling. Three men were in the caboose and 12 on a llatcar ahead. Those in the caboose where mangled beyond recognition. Three men on the llatcar were killed and two so badly injured that they have since died. Half a dozen were hurt more or less. Pour of the killed were so mangled as to be absolutely unrecognizable and were only identified by papers in their pockets. The locomotive of the wild freight is almost a complete wreck. There is nothing left apparently except the boiler and foul- wheel boxes. Several cars were totally demolished and the track torn up in bad shape. Traffic will be suspended 24 hours.

Miles at Chicago giving the details of the arrangement for the Iowa militia participation in the Columbian day celebration. It is the intention to toove the Iowa brigade to Chicago Oct. returning Got 23, There wl^ fee the Tho li'ort Dodge Messenger Gives a Now Item About the Venezuela Affair. Here suddenly shows up Phil. Hanna. of Kossuth county, Iowa, our own Tenth district, in heroic light, making a courageous and sturdy stand, as United States consul at LaGuayra, against a revolutionary government. Mr. Hanna when appointed was a Methodist preacher of slight frame and delicate health, but he seems to have been stalwart enough to cow a South American revolution. The New York Herald of Sept. 12 has a stirring dispatch of half a column, headed "Hanna's Brave Stand Saved the Consuls," while on the editorial page appears the following: " Stirring news comes from the Her^ aid's correspondent in Venezuela. Luciano Mendoza, seizing dictatorial power by force of arms, carried things with a high hand. In his anxiety for money he rode rough-shod not only over his own countrymen, but seized the persons of foreign merchants and foreign consuls. Just hero is where he made the mistake which led to his downfall. The American consul at La- Guayra, Philip C. Hanna, knows the duties and rights of a representative of the United States, and has the nerve to do the one and to see that the others are respected. When appealed to by the imprisoned consuls he promptly demanded their unconditional release, and when this proper demand was not immediately granted appealed to the foreign war ships in the port to aid him in enforcing it. When this show was made the consuls were released." Una Coullrteucc In It. " I would father trust tbat medicine than »ny doctor I know of," says Mva.
