The State Register says a good joke has reached the public ear in regard to a caucus that was hold by the republican senators and representatives of the Eighth congressional district on the claim of Mr. J. L. Brown, ex-auditor of the state. It IB said that when the caucus had been called to order ono of the members remarked that "all gentlemen who expect to be candidates for congress in our district had better not take part in this caucus." It was a short speech, but every man in the room arose to his feet before the man who made it could make a start for the door, and it is said that several members were severely jammed in the grand rush that was made for the hall. Every man rushed out as quick as possible, and not one could bo induced to return and close the door. Hereafter all of the Eighth district caucuses are to bo held in rooms that have three or four doors, in order that there may be ample opportunities for speedy exit in similar exigencies. Only one legislator from that district was absent from the caucus referred to, but all of them are now claiming that they were that "ono legislator. ^^_^__ The C., M. & St. P. railway company has just recorded a mortgage of $5,000,000. It is recorded in 26 counties in Iowa and in three other states. The report of the governor has been presented to the legislature, showing that during the past year he had extended clemency in 292 cases, of which 156 were for violations of the prohibitory law. Quite an excitement was created in Council Bluffs last week by the action of Father O'Rourke, a Catholic priest, in refusing to allow the American banner to enter the church. The starsand stripes covered the casket of a departed old soldier, a member of the G. A. R., also a Catholic. After refusing to admit the body with the flag, theG. A. R. marched past the church with the remains and no service was held. Father O'Rourke offers an apology to the G. A. R. and claims he was mistaken in the rules of the church in regard to the admittance of regalias and banners of secret societies. A Norway girl, according to national customs, is not allowed to have a beau until she can make bread. Her matrimonial prospects, an exchange suggests, rise with the bread. That would be a good custom for all nations and for all girls. _______ Congressman Dolliver introduced into the house a bill granting the state of Iowa, in trust for drainage purposes, Goose lake, in Greene county, consisting of 640 acres. Mr. Geo. Hunt, formerly of Clay county, has for the past four years been head keeper of the lighthouse on Tillamook Rock off the coast of northern California in the Pacific ocean. He was lately transferred to Cape Mear's lighthouse on the main land where he was not so isolated as he was out in the Pacific. In the latter part of December he passed through a fearful storm in the light house on Tillamook Rock, the mountainous seas at times breaking entirely oyer the rock and lighthouse, which is about 160 feet above sea level. They were at times in a perilous condition and entirely isolated from shore for six weeks, when a steamer came out and succeeded in landing supplies. The share holders of the now famous Waterloo Mutual Insurance company have just received an intimation that those who would be entitled to the $1,000 next year can have all the money there is for them, $66.75 each, by signing a receipt in full and sending it to Sioux City. At the sale of Williams' five horses, at Lexington, Ky., the prices in most cases were ridiculously small, and the horses would have brought more in Iowa. Barnhart, a full brother of Allerton, sold for $15,000, Drextell, a full brother of Axtel, brought only $7,500, Mary Marshall was knocked down at $12,800, Patronage sold for $2,300, Judge Rider for $6,600, and Onmore for $1,700. The entire string brought only $75,000, ^ A fit subject for the Keeley cure entered a. drug store of Webster City and the clerk lor a quart of alcohol. WP given him, but 9,8 be had BO pay, he would-be purchaser and he was asked to put the bottle down on the counter, which he very quietly did and went out of the store. When the clerk took up the bottle of the supposed alcohol to his utter amazement it was filled with Iowa river water, which the buyer had exchanged for the alcohol. F. W. Thomas, agent for the Litchfield river lands at Fort Dodge, has re" ceived a schedule of prices at which the farms will bo sold to the settlers. The prices average about $33 per acre, about three times what the land would have brought five years ago. The prices are so high that few settlers will buy. The lands will, however, be leased to them. The Snoll lands are held at the same prices, but the settlers will not be permitted to lease. Those who cannot buy must get off. The Des Moines News says a picturesque trio entered the capitol Tuesday morning. Judge Wright led the way, and with him were Judge Cassady and that honored landmark of Iowa's early history, General Geo. W. Jones. The three entered the senate chamber, where their silvered hair and distinguished appearance attracted universal attention, and senator alter senator esteemed it an honor to grasp the hands of those pioneer lawmakers. General Jones, especially, was the object of attraction, as the first United States senator from Iowa, who was a contemporary with Henry Clay, and through whose efforts Iowa was sot apart from the territory of Michigan. His name haa been a symbol of honor and respect for the last half century. Through: the kindness of Senator Brower a News reporter was introduced to General Jones. On hearing that he was one of those ubiquitous newspaper men, the old gentleman remarked that he used to run a paper, and Judge Wright said, "I wonder, General, if there is any business in which you have not been engaged." A senator near by said, " No, even to having been an actor in a duel." This called up the fact that Gen. Jones was a second in the famous Graves-Cilly affair. The venerable senator is about 90 years old. His form is remarkably erect, his eyes sharp and bright, his conversation most entertaining, his manners those of the gentlemen of the old school, and .save for his long silver hair, the casual observer would never have thought that he was looking at the first lawmaker ever sent from Iowa. , The Minneapolis & St. Louis road has created a decided sensation in railway passenger circles by issuing a mileage book containing 2,000 miles each, and good for transportation over parts of a dozen different linos. The roads not included threaten to make it warm for the Minneapolis & St. Louis, unless the new mileage is withdrawn from sale. _ Congressman Walt Butler of Iowa made a spectacle of himself in congress last week. The question before the house was concerning the employment of two additional messengers. Butler aught the speaker's eye, was recognized, and then stood for three or four minutes for order to be restored. Finally when all was quiet and every eye > was centered upon him, Butler said: " Mr. Speaker, we have novr reached a critical point in the history of this house. " It was so 1 udicrous that shouts of derision drowned his yoice. He withdrew for repairs and sat down in confusion, while the air was rent with "time, time," "play, ball," "slide there." _ Senator Funk's bill to cure defective acknowledgements of deeds and other written instruments is one of much import, as also is his bill to require justices and constables to pay their fees, above a certain amount, into the county ireasury. _ WHAT WHITTEMQRE IS DOING, She Ships 1,331 CurloadsofProdu.ee In 1801— A Ilemurlcublo Showing. A writer from Whittemore to the Lu Verne News gives the station agent's figures for the shipping business of 1891, in all 1,221 cars of produce: Of this 671 was hay, 143 hogs, 39 cattle, one of sheep, one of horses, 138 of oats, 85 of corn, 59 of flax, 17 of barley, 25 of butter, 12 of wheat, four of straw, and 21 niscellaneous. For forwarding freight from here during the year 1891 there was paid $44,829.96, and for freight received there was paid $16,137.90, making a grand total of freight paid during the year of $60,968.85. How is this for a mmlet of less than 400 inhabitants? The question is, who can beat it? The ibove is authentic, as it was taken from ;he railroad company's books. Mtirdl Graa Kates.
