Complete returns from Iowa cities more than sustain tho first reports of republican success in tho municipal elections. Fort Madison elects tho first republican mayor in its history; Ottumwa turns down its present democratic administration; LeMars, Iowa City and Fort Dodge, formerly democrat strongholds, all went republican. Even in Burlington and Clinton tho republicans divided honors with tho democrats. The lowu revenue commission has adjourned for two weeks. Col. Clarke did not attend tho mooting, being detained in Algona by a revenue question of more immediate personal interest to him. It will be some timo before the commission is ready to give out anything for publication; they wisely prefer to wait until they have made tho plan as perfect as they know how before they turn it loose to be attacked by tho many conflicting interests. One of tho things that is puzzling tho commission is how to reach tho express companies, as they have very little property in sight, yet earn very large dividends. One plan suggested is to charge these companies a heavy license for doing business in the state. S. C. Hastings died in California Saturday night at the ripe ago of 78 years. Forty-six years ago, when Iowa became a state, he was its first congressman. In 1849 the gold fever carried Hastings from Iowa to California, where he made a fortune, which he used largely for charitable and educational purposes. Capt. Wilson of the Fort Dodge branch of the salvation army has been court-martialed and dismissed in disgrace from the army for marrying against the advice of her superior officer.

Some time ago Tom Elsinger, a young man who was not an army member, began paying her attentions. In a short time a violent love affair was in progress. Tom foreswore his worldly ways and joined the army, and Capt. Wilson promised to marry him. Nearly all the local members objected to the marriage, claiming that their captain was throwing herself away on a worthless young man. Major French and Capt. Nelson came to Des Moines and brought all II. A. Clock IB Evidently Bolng/WeM lu Hiunpton. The Hampton Recorder has- th.0' following notice of, our one- time- "-city dad" H. A-.. Clock: Henry, A..

The superintendent, a large stockholder, is an expert from Germany. The process is secret, and as a caution against its being revealed even the Dubuque stockholders are denied admission to the works, and operators in one department are not permitted to enter another. _______ Ex-Lieut. Gov, Cue, soecretary of the Iowa historical department, is giving more time of late to his forthcoming history of Iowa. He has been engaged for several years on this work and it will be all that can be desired by the student of history, and will be complete. Gov. Gue is not only thoroughly well informed of his own knowledge and experience of the history of the state he helped to make, but he has had access to all the original historical material in existence, and he has the requisite literary ability to make his books not only accurate but attractive. The work will be in three volumes and the publication of the first volume may be looked for some time next fall. John D. Springer has left the Atohe- son & Santa Fe railroad, and is now with the Chicago elevated company as general counsel. The Register says: " Judge Springer was a lawyer twenty years ago in the town of Humboldt, whore he was a partner of J. N. Prouty, who is still practicing law there, and in the meantime has brought up a daughter who has been admitted to the a gra.du.ate of the state univer- jjunlpp The Courier's !>«» Moluos SiAo Tells a Startling Story. The patent editor ot the Courier evidently thinks that the Algona end of the shop is not being well managed for last week he revives one of tho local items and adds a few details to it, and puts it on the second page as follows: " A very bad accident occurred at the Call bridge over tho Des Moines river south of Algona, S. A. Thompson, his aged wife, and daughter, were going home quite late and when crossing the river the team became frightened and shied off the bridge, carrying the sleigh, with its occupants to the river below, a distance of some 20 or 30 feet. The old couple were some two hours afterwards found lying on the ice in a badly bruised and unconscious condition. They were brought to their home, medical aid summoned and are now on u fair way to recovery, The team after becoming disentangled from the mass ran away and have not yet been recovered," We do not recall what the Courier published that would lead the man at the other end to infer that Mrs. Thompson is an " aged" lady, or any of tho other startling things in this story, but whatever it said we are satisfied it should be brought to time. Such items us this add a new terror to falling off bridges worse than "two hours on the ' f ice.'
