According to the best information that can be obtained at this distance it came about in this wise: The new Methodist parson at LuVerno is a stalwart of stalwarts on the question of prohibition. Ho is against the use of liquor in any form or shape, first, last, and always. Ho fights the demon early and late, in season and out of season, and lots no opportunity slip to give it a black eye whenever and wherever he gets an opportunity. This is all right, because it is his belief and no doubt he is conscientious in what ho says and does. He believes the pulpit is just as good a place to talk prohibition as any other, and in accordance with this 'idea, as the story goes, ho flayed the license men generally and the republican party particularly last Sunday morning, saying, substantially, that the republican party, after its most inglorious back-down this year on the liquor question, was no longer on- titled to the confidence or respect of ultra prohibitionists, and the proper thing to do was to turn the republicans down, or something of that sort, and vote the third party ticket. It is perhaps needless to remark that the worthy divine's Sunday morning discourse kicked up a very animated disturbance in Lu Verne, where they pride themselves upon being a law- abiding community, and, incidentally, a pretty good lot of people in a general way. Some republicans were pleased and some were not, and it was some of the latter sort that swore by the great horned spoon they would never give Aid, and has been incorporated. One hundred thousand dollars in stock will bo issued to railroad employes, and on payment of a fee membership will also bo issued which will entitle the holder to one year's legal advice free, and low rates for legal service. Any employe of steam, electric, cable or other road is eligible to membership. Webster City is now using over 2,600 incandescent electric lights and is running its plant to its full capacity. Demands for more lights are being refused. The two burglars who went through the Burnquist's store at Dayton and McMastor's store at Dana are under arrest at Jefferson. They wore arrested while asleep under a straw stack at Grand Junction by John Thompson and Frank Luther, constables at that place. When captured they had in their possession portions of the goods stolen from both of the places above mentioned and are suspected of having done a wholesale burglary business in that vicinity. Win. .Tonka' livery and feed barn at Spencer, including his trotting horso, Kocket, and two other blooded horses, burned Thursday evening.

Sioux City proposes to build, a corn palace next year and will go to work in time. A meeting was held in the city a few nights since, which was attended by a largo number of the leading business men of the city, to consider the question. Everyone present favored the project of a corn palace, and a committee, of which J. L. Toy, formerly of Waterloo, was a member, was appointed to arrange for an organization of citizens to carry out the scheme. State Bank of Bancroft All warranted. Liberal discount on round lots. J. J.

Jones & Smith. that minister a cent of money so long as they lived and breathed, and would take pains to see that when his salary was made up none of it would come from the bottoms of their pockets. But not so with the democrats. They said that was good doctrine, and they were profuse in their praises of the minister's utterances. That suited them exactly, on the theory that anything that was against the republicans was to their benefit. It is said that the butcher was so elated that on the following morning he took a fine roast over to the clergyman and made him a present of it. It is also said that Bro. Platt of the News, not so highly elated as the butcher, has also promised the minister a " roast" in his next issue, but not of the same sort. Bro. Sullivan was in Lu Verne Monday, and doubtless with a view to smoothing the minister's thorny path, said that if the people of Lu Verne did not make up the full amount of his salary he would see that it was paid, even if he had to draw on the democratic county campaign fund for that purpose. This might not exactly be oil on the troubled waters, but it would have a soothing effect at a time when there was a stringency in the money market. And thus, as was said by our informant, the good fight is progressing, on one hand by the minister and on the other by those republicans who are not wholly in love with his kind of politics. What will come of it time alone, which makes all things even, must develop. THE IOWA NEWS.

Smith, a smooth young man who has been victimizing Odd Fellows all over the country, was sentenced to two years hard labor in the state penitentiary Wednesday afternoon at Fort Dodge. Smith was arrested while attempting to cash a forged order from a Texas lodge at Dayton. State Senator Finn, who dismissed his action for libel against the Bedford editor, said he did so from motives of humanity and adds: Let me say that if any editor thinks I am afraid to go into court on these charges after this statement, he has but to aver the truth of the Belvel letter, send me a copy of the paper, and I will give bond to try a case with him to its conclusion.
