A meeting of the supremo court was hold at Dos Molnos last week to allow Judge Beck "to close up his work on the bench. The Capital says of the mooting: " It is only important and notable from the fact that with its close Judge Joseph M. Beck will rotiro to private life, after a most honorable Borvico of SJ4 consecutive years—a longer period than any other man has ever occupied that most responsible and laborious position in our state; in fact, three- fourths of the lifetime of a generation.

Tho state railway commissioners um up tholr report by saying. "Tho mst year has been ono of prosperity to ioth tho railroads and tho people of tho tate. This in face of the fact that tho ovonuos from intor-stato business luivo declined. The year 1801-2 bids fair to tho most remunerative in tho his- ory of railway management, unless a oolish rivalry among tho general man- gors of the trunk linos should load hem to fritter away tholr revenues on ntor-state traffic in a senseless rato cut- Ing—an evil which is effectually guard- d against in Iowa by tho stable rates n force hero." A big mooting of tho National Sab- uth union was hold at Des Moinos last rook. Dr. Horrick Johnson of Chlca- o, Col.
