He is also a newspaper correspondent, representing democratic papers throughout the state. In a recent letter to a number of papers he referred to Senator Finn as a libertine and a blackguard. The latter grow out of the current report that Senator Finn visited a Whitechapel dive a week ago and was arrested by tho police. Just after tho adjournment of tho morning session of tho senate, Friday, Finn walked over the door of tho senate and called Belvel to one side and within the senate chamber. Ho took Belvel to task for writing the letter, and called him a liar. Belvel said that the statements made were true, when Finn called him a dirty dog and knocked him down, and getting on top of him proceeded to pound him with his fists. Other senators, who had not yet loft the chamber, and a reporter for the News ran. to the assistance of Belvel. Senators Reiniger and Conawa.y helped to pull Finn off the prostrate man. The latter was considerably bruised, but not apparently seriously injured, and was soon able to stand with some assistance. Senator Finn immediately left the senate chamber and walked down to the corner of Sixth and Locust streets, whore he took a car for the Savery hotel. One sentence of Belvel's letter was: " Finn is a pink to be put forward to talk for temperance and virtue—the open toper, notorious libertine and common blackguard that he is. The proposition to create a new court in Iowa to relieve the supreme court of a part of its labors has not taken form. The Polk county bar advocates adding two judges to the supreme bench, instead of instituting a new tribunal. The colloquy between Senators Finn and Perry in the prohibition debate is i interesting sample of senatorial courtesy. J. W. Richards says Senator Perry, who by tho way is a new member, took the contract to " do up" Finn, but when he got through he realized that his work hadn't been exactly in the nature of a blooming success. He started in by scoffing at Finn's defense of prohibition from a moral standpoint, but got a reply in the shape of advice from Finn to try and adhere strictly to the truth. Then he set out to have some fun at the expense of Finn's florid complexion, and insinuated that it did not indicate that he was a prohibitionist. Finn responded: " The difference between the color of my face and that of Senator Perry's is the difference between the hue of health and a rum blossom." Perry winced a trifle, but soon got back to his old tack of ridiculing Finn's support of prohibition. Then Finn got on his feet once more and exclaimed: "Does the senator from Monroe think that he can make this senate believe that he is a prohibitionist in his personal habits?" And then, without waiting for an an answer, he said: "If he does, I don't want him to blow his breath in my direction!" Senator Perry realized that he had monkeyed with the buzz saw a trifle more than was good for him, but he replied: " Well, I can imagine Finn out on the highways and byways where he would give half a dollar to breathe the breath of a man who just came out of a beer saloon." After this exchange of'' courtesies" Senator Perry concluded to let Finn alone during the balance of his speech and returned to the endless tirade that all the democratic orators have mouthed over and over again about how prohibition is ruining Iowa. Pressed brick, and all kinds of building material. Also sole agents for the celebrated Poweml'c Tell Roofing. This roofing is absolutely fire and proof; easily applied and mere durable than shingles; only costs you 12,00 per 100 Washington Press: Why is anybody in Iowa so foolish as to wish to give $300,000 for the world's fair? It would be a criminal waste of money. Pennsylvania and California have each given that sum, but they are manufacturing or mineral or fruit states. Iowa is purely agricultural. Missouri gives $160,000; Michigan, Ohio and Colorado, $100,000 each; Indiana and Massachusetts, $75,000 each; Wisconsin $65,000; Montana, Nebraska and Minnesota, each $50,000; several more $25,000 each, while Vermont pinches $15,000. Iowa is foolish to go above $100, 000, while, if that were divided by 3, it would be ample. Senator Punk's bill has passed the Iowa senate, providing for the funding of indebtedness of incorporated towns, eyid.en.ced, by outstanding warrants. IlWpwW town.8 having an optetandl thousand dollars at the time of the passage of this act, are authorized, by a two-thirds vote of the town council, to fund such indebtedness, and to issue coupon bonds of such corporations in sums of not less than one hundred dollars and not more than one thousand dollars, having not more than twenty years to run, and redeemable at the .2:37pm pleasure of such corporations after five years from date of their issue, bearing interest at a rate not exceeding 6 per cent., payable semi-annually. A Keokuk county widower was ia Fairfleld and heard of a widow lady and sent two men to ask her if she would marry him, and being answered in the affirmative, procured a license, went to tho old lady's domicile, sent for a minister and was married inside of one half hour after they first met each other. A young man at West Union proposed for tho hand of a beautiful girl. As she hesitated in her answer he said: "I await your answer with bated breath." Tho girl, who is 'quite a humorist, said: " Well, sir, you will have to bait your breath with something besides beer and tobacco to catch me. Good evening." C. W. Williams confirms the report that Allerton, 2:09}, and Axtoll, 2:12, would meet on the track this season. " If both horses do well, as seems almost certain," said ho, "they will trot not one, but three matches next summer, meeting first at Independence, Allerton's home, in August; at Torre Haute, Axtell'i home, in September, and at Lexington, neutral ground, in October. I think Allerton will win two or three of the races, because he is mine, and a great horse. I would not have made the races if I did not expect to get them. ,But Axtell can trot faster than his record, made as a three-year-old. 1 know that, but I -shall train and drive Allerton." Budd Doble, who owns an interest in Axtell, will train and drive him. The races will attract more attention than any trotting events of late years. Both horses are six years old, both great trotters, both were bred by Williams and both are sons of George Wilkes out of daughters of Mambrino Boy. Williams sold Axtell for $105,000 and Allerton is without price. Mr. Williams said Budd Doble had a great young trotter in Axtell's full brother, Drextell, for whom he paid $7,500 at Lexington recently, and Mr. McHenry a bargain in Barnhart, Allerton's full brother, for $15,000. Neither brought as high prices as Williams thought they would, and he thinks he made a mistake in not selling them in New York with Senator Stanford's lot, where rich buyers were more numerous. In 1850 the production of corn in the United States was 377,531,875 bushels. The crop of 1891 was nearly six timesas large, though the population is less tkan four times as much as in 1840. The south was then the center of corn growing, and Tennessee was first among the states in its production. In subsequent years the corn center was in Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina and Illinois. It has recently passed beyond the the Missis- sissippi and Iowa is now the center of of corn production, easily distancing all the states in this great crop. A notorious place of prostitution of the capital city was raided Saturday night and 23 inmates arrested. Of these there were seven women, and the rest of the crowd was composed of two senators, one railroad man, one bank cashier, a newspaper man, two doctors, and the remainder were members and employees of the house of representatives. They were not locked up, being allowed to go after putting un $13 apiece, or $208. Capt. Thompson allowed the legislators to hide their identity, and let a hackload go on their word of honor. Several important changes are impending at the city hall, growing out of the arrest. Tvvo of the guilty parties have sent the money to the city hall to pay their fines and they have been entered in their true names. The senators, one of whom is a democrat and one a republican, were released on the advice of the police judge that they are not subject to arrest during the session. They will be arrested immediately on the adjournment of the legislature. It is now stated that the parties who left the hack broke faith with the officer in charge of the search, to whom they gave their word of honor as gentlemen that they would report at city hall. Tho hope is expressed in circles not unfriendly to the mayor that he will not only call for the resig^ nation of one of the officials concerned in this episode, but that he will at the same time rid his administration of a marshal who has proved his unfitness for his office by scandalous official misconduct on several recent occasions.
