What Iowa democrats arc planning for was outlined by a leading politician at Dos Moines last week to J. W. Richards: If wo can only got through this session without any change in the prohibitory law wo will be in excellent shape. Gov. Boies does not want to be on the democratic national ticket, but I can tell you what ho does want and what the leading democrats desire to have result. Gov. Boies would like to be United States senator from Iowa, and if our plans do not fail he will succeed. If the prohibition law is not amended this session in two years from last fall Gov. • Boies will • conduct a John M. Palmer campaign in Iowa. His name will be placed at the head of the ticket as candidate for United States senator, and some such man as Chtis. A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids for governor, and they will make a campaign that will sweep the state, elect a democratic majority in both houses, and send Gov. Boies to the United States senate in place of Senator Wilson. Senators Bolter and Cleveland will have to keep their gubernatorial aspirations on the shelf until the state gets to be a little more solidly democratic, and then they may have a chance.

Lafo Young says Senator Bolter of Harrison county is most favorably mentioned as the democratic candidate for governor next year. This is Senator Bolter's ninth term as a member, having been in the Eleventh, Fifteenth, Sixteenth, Nineteenth, Twentieth, Twenty-first, Twenty-second and Twenty-third general assemblies, and he has the longest term of legislative service to his credit of any other member of either house. He is 57 years of age and has lived in Iowa 28 years. He is a lawyer by profession, and is a native of Ohio. ' No man, except Gov. Larrabee, has ever served so long a term as Bolter, the Hamlet-like senator from Harrison. Dr. J. B. Charlton of Clear Lake is announced as a candidate for department commander of the G. A. R. to succeed Capt. Davidson of Hull. The Rural New Yorker say's that Gov. Boies of Iowa, who is 54 years old, has now thousands of acres of land in Iowa, and is now one of the largest practical farmers in the country., He makes his farms bring him in an income, and he owns one in Grundy county, 30 miles from where he lives, which contains 2,640 acres, and every acre of it in a high state of cultivation. He has a herd of 500 cattle upon it, and half of the farm is'devoted to stock raising. He knows every detail of the management of it, often going out into the fields and taking place with his men in the work. He spends his vacation upon it now, and he used to spend one or two days of every week in looking over it. He has another big farm in Palo Alto county, which contains 1,000 acres of grazing land, and-upon this he keeps a lot of fine stock. His men drive his herds to the grazing lands in the spring, and in the fall they are brought back for feeding. which, and Cummings was brought before Justice Algyer, who assessed him $25 and eosts for his burst of affection. The First National bank of Grand Haven, Mich., was defeated for the fifth time in the district court at Fort Dodge in an attempt te collect notes given by the farmers for a patent right snap. Although the notes were in the hands of an innocent purchaser no jury has yet been found which will endorse their collection. The makers of the notes claim that they were obtained under false pretenses. Judge Weaver, now holding court at Eldora, has set March 8 for hearing the motion for re-opening the Ellsworth divorce case. Since the publication of the state university notes of Dec. 11, 1891, there have been added to the library 050 volumes, covering subjects as follows: Political science, 45; natural science, 120; English literature, 40; philosophy, 30; history, 75; miscellaneous, 100, and of German literature, 140. Of these a number are finely illustrated. The growth in the general library during the past four years has been rapid. From statistics furnished we find that in 1888-89 only 510 volumes were added. In 1889-90, 767 volumes were added, last year 1,000, and up to date of present year, 1474. A Washington dispatch intimates that a friendly but very active rivalry is now in progress between Mr. Hopkins of Illinois and Mr. Dolliver of Iowa for the vacant place on the ways and means committee. The vacancy is caused by the retirement of Judge McKenna of California, who has just been appointed to the federal bench by President Harrison. This committee is the most important in congress. The Rural World says Anson C. Owen, a pioneer of Iowa, died at his home in Mason City last week. A little over two years ago he gained worldwide reputation on account of his chal-' lenge to run any man in the world of his ago, 80 years, a forty-rod foot race. He went to Detroit in the spring of 1833. Two years later he went to St. Joseph, Michigan, on foot by the old territorial road, and went on to Chicago by schooner. That city was then but u collection of a few shanties. In 1837 he took the first stage out of Chicago bound for Rockford. In 1839 he hauled the first load of wheat from Winnebago county to Chicago, and sold it for 38 cents a bushel, taking his pay in leather. He located near Mason City, Iowa, in 1853, where he lived for a long time in a tent, and had many thrilling adventures with the Sioux and other tribes of Indians. He has been prominently identified with the development of the northern part of the state, and few men enjoyed a more extensive acquaintance. Department Commander Davidson of the Iowa G. A. R., with other members of his staff, were in Outtumwa last week making arrangements for the coming encampment. Commander Davidson said that the encampment comes this year just at the time when farmers can best attend, and that the attendance will be unprecedented. He believes that fully 15,000 people and veterans will be present. A local stock company will put in a plant at Spencer to manufacture bank and office furniture. In the big shooting contest at Oskaloosa last week the $1,000 championship prize was won by Budd, he getting 96 out of 100 live birds, and Marshall 90. Budd killed his last 35 straight. The other prizes of the day were won by Marshall, Grimm, Budd and Powell, the purses ranging from $25 to $100. \j. LUND. J. J. RYAN. *1 f [Successors to C. L.

Bon. W. Austin, the celebrated Texas collector, has just sent a fine letter by Henry J, Ray- mood, who founded the New York Times. Ed. Cummings of Sheldon drove down to the county seat, last week, as witness and accumulated a goodly supply of soft mud on hi? person from the flying wheels of his buggy. When he arrived he good-BaJtereaiy (?) threw bis muddy arms »yp^p4 ^ob R Buytoa. The latter resen,te .fcifc ec »nd in the It turns out that Senators Finn and Dodge were the victims of a couple of Dubuquers, one an editor, in the Des Moines " dive" raid. These men, it is claimed, gave the names of Senator Finn and Senator Dodge, thinking this representation would frighten the police in letting them go, It is also said that Senator Dodge said that he would not rest until he had brought the Dubuque editor to justice, and a Dubuque attorney has been instructed to see that the editor does not slip out of town. The senator said: "That man used my name, and I will will follow him to the end of the earth." When the editor was informed that he was wanted he expressed the greatest surprise. This was succeded by a declaration that he would never be taken to Des Moines " unless they take me in irons." "I know what I'll do," he exclaimed, "I'll telegraph Senator Brower that 1 know nothing of it, and if he insists on summoning me after that I'll show him up. Brower won't dare call me." TUemjma of the editor is not given,,
