Boies and party left on Sunday evening' for Denver, where the governor enlightened the Groystone club nt their banquet last evening on the subject of the tariff, and incidentally tried to convince them that if Cleveland is out of the race ho is tho only man the democracy of tho west can heartily support for tho democratic presidential nomination. Tho party left Des Moines by special train on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy at 7 o'clock in tho private cur " Lycoming," and their car was attached to the Denver limited at Albia. Tho party consisted of Gov. Boies, his daughter Miss Jessie Boies, Miss Mao Barber of Waterloo, Miss Ham of Dubuque, Miss Kinno, daughter of Judge Kinno of the supremo court, H. C. Shavor of Des Moines, J. J. Richardson and daughter, and Maj. and Mrs. Wylie of Davenport. Others joined the party at Lincoln. Col. Chas. A.. Clarke of Cedar Rapids was expected to bo at the banquet and respond to the toast, " The State of Iowa." The second annual reunion of tho Iowa Keeley league will be held in Des Moines tomorrow. Over 400 invitations have been issued, and about 200 "graduates" are expected. The leading address will be made by Chas. McKonzie of Harrison county, and five-minute speeches will be made by C. P. Martin of Nevada; C. F. Chaso, editor of tho Atlantic Democrat; F. Q. Stewart of the Des Moines Leader, and Bob Haris of the Missouri Valley Times. A bill of great importance is proposed in the legislature for the relief of the supreme court. It provides for tho establishment of an additional judicial body to be known as. the appellate court of tho state of Iowa. It is to bo a court of record and consist of three judges, no more than two of whom shall belong to the same political party. The term of office of tho judges shall be six years and their 'salary $3,500 a year. The appellate court shall have no original jurisdiction, but shall have exclusive jurisdiction of all civil cases at law and in equity appealed from the district and superior courts of the state, and of all proceedings by certiorari or otherwise where the amount in controversy does not exceed $1,000. 6; A. C. Owen of Mason City, who gained celebrity a few years ago by his challenge to any man 80 years old to run him a foot race, is dead. Hampton's aluminum works are turning out two tons a day of this newly discovered metal. It is taken from the claybanks in that vicinity. Creston has a hotly-contested waterworks case. Every lawyer in town is on one side or the other. A race between Axtell and Allerton is being arranged for the August meet- at Independence. Ft, Dodge is after the saloons again. Chicago's receipts of cattle for last month, 286,683 head, were the largest ever recorded for January. Tho average weight of hogs received at Chicago during January, 1892, was 225 pounds, against 242 pounds in January, 1891; 233 pounds in January, 1891; 241 pounds in January, 1890; 254 pounds in January, 1889, and 218 pounds in January, 1888, ______ Maj. Horr, who served with distinction in Gen, Sherman's original regl- ment, the Thirteenth United States infantry, and W. S. Knight, solicitor for the Illinois Central and Milwaukee railroads, ex-president of thei Dubuque and Sioux City, ex-state senator and ex-mayor, were the parties to an exciting scene in the district court at Du- buquolast week. Mrs. Ogilbey, Maj. Horr's mother-in-law, made a will giving ex-Mayor Stewart, who drew it, over one-fourth of her estate, , In defending Stewart, Knight said that Maj. Horr had sent his mother-in-law a bill for the expenses of his wedding trip. "That's a lie! You're an infernal liar," Maj. Horr shouted. "Come on, Major," Knight retorted, and then advanced and placed his hand in his hip pocket. The court officers rushed between the men while the lawyers in the room darted behind the stove and benches. Tho principals were led away by their friends, but trouble is expected between them. The Gold club, at that place, of which Frank Davey, formerly of Estherville, is man- ape r: "The Bi-Chloride of Gold club held a meeting in the offlue of theKeel- ey institute on Wednesday evening and elected several now members* The club will soon be strong in its influence for good. A finer set of gentlemen cannot be found in Oregon than the members of this club." LEGISLATIVE NOTES. Emmetsburg Democrat: Sheldon will light hard to get the normal school promised to Algona. Sheldon will not bo "in it." Senator Funk has introduced a bill to restrain hunters from trespassing on cultivated land or inclosed grounds without permission. The State Loader says: Representative Smith of Algona is socially a most delightful gentleman and has already won the kindly regards of his colleagues and all who have met him. His weakness is hunting and fishing, his stories of which are only equalled by the cheerful romances told by Oscar Vanderbuilt after one of his periodical trips to the Yellowstone park. Representative John G. Smith of Kossuth county has introduced bills increasing the duties of the llsh commissioner so that ho will look after game as well as fish, and increasing his salary to $1,600 per year; also an act to protect citizens who desire to introduce into Iowa Chinese pheasants, n fowl which has become so popular in western states, preventing the killingj of this fowl for live years; also shortening the duck season fifteen days in the fall and fifteen days in the spring. Lafe Young writes: Senator Bolter, by virtue of his long service, is the democratic leader. But the senator's rule is becoming an absolute despotism, from which Senators Shields and Perry, two very able democrats, will revolt before the session ends. Bolter is a man of fair ability, but his faculties are sluggish and ho sometimes sees things too late. In a catch-as-catch-can do- bate he is no match for Finn, the republican thorn in the democratic anatomy. Finn is sharp and as well qualified as any to lead the republicans, but he is not accorded leadership. Such conservatives as Gatch and Brower would much rather go contrary to Finn than with him. Old republican wheel-horses, as Woolson, Hutchison, McCoy, Price, Sweeney, Poyneer and others, are greatly missed. Some of the new senators, among them Hager and Adair and Jamison and Clark, are bright, and at the next session will be equipped for battle in the front ranks. THE ANDREWS OPEEA COMPANY. The Railway Company Settles \vlth Them—Soon to Go on tlio lload Again. The following from a Minneapolis paper in regard to the Andrews Opera company will bo of local interest: The remnant of the And rows Opera company reached Minneapolis last night from Brainerd. The Andrews boy6 and their families went straight to their homes in Mankato and the rest are with friends in Minneapolis. All of them have effected settlements with the Northern Pacific, and the boys with the money thus secured expect to reorganize the company within three weeks and take the road again. They have some advantageous contracts in the west of which they wish to take advantage. Ed. Andrews receives $5,000 for the death of his wife and $2,000 for personal injuries; George Andrews, $1,000; Jessie Andrews $1,000; Florence Joy, $760. All the other people settle for sums in the neighborhood of $250. The settlement includes an assumption by the company of the expenses at Brainerd. Under the circumstances, the proposed benefit for the Andrews people, which was expected to occur next week, will probably be abandoned, The four members of the company who remained in Brainerd are Florence Joy, Jose Shearer, Letitia Fritch, and Mrs. Barker, Miss Fritch's sister. They are too ill to be removed. It is not thought that Miss Joy can live. The one chance for life lies in the amputation of the right arm. Blood poisoning has set in. THAT DOG STOEY. It I-ionds the lioono Standard to Ke- late n Horse Incident, THE UPPER DES MOINES says that Mr. Geo. E. Clarke relates that when he was a boy a stub-tailed dog made his home at the Clarke farm, and bore the name of never being whipped in a fight. "Four miles away," said Mr. Clarke, " a relative had a black and tan, which was set upon one afternoon by a neighbor's dog and badly injured. All efforts to get the little dog in the house failed, and he shortly disappeared. The next morning he came back and strutted about the dog that had chewed him up the day before, and succeeded in getting him out from the house, when the brindled • fighter emerged from his hiding place and left nothing but shoe strings of the bully, The little dog had gone over to the Clarke farm and gQt their dog to come over." That is all very well for a common sort of an animal story and may be interesting up near the Minnesota border, where THE UPPER DES MOINES circulates, but we have "an o'er true tale" of a horse which matches it and goes even one better. On the old farm down in Pennsylvania we had a horse which was up to snuff. Not only did it know how to keep on the further side of the pasture when one appeared with a bridle, but in winter it was equj&J Ijg aft occasions. One day it se&qd' a^garo , cob in, its ,. 't
