They look vory favorably upon the Pennsylvania, plan of collecting state taxes directly, and not through counties mostly by corporation taxes and licenses. This plan will at first be opposed by the school districts, which enjoy largo incomes from railroad taxes, but it will tend toward bringing about lowest valuations and do away with the strife in tho counties over tho valuation on which this tax is collected. Take the counties out of tho state assessment, relinquish to tho state all the railway and-all other corporation taxes, and matters will easily adjust themselves. The average stato tax is about equal to tho railway tax, take county by county, with something in favor of the counties. t Tho only painting from Iowa accepted by the committee for exhibition in the woman's building was painted by Mrs. J. A. Gorman of Council Bluffs. The Sibley Tribune estimated that the total loss of the depositors of tho Norwestern State bank of that place will amount to §116,100. They will regain only about 15 per cent, of their total deposits. Work is soon to be commenced on the new normal school building at Sheldon. ^____ State Fish Commissioner Griggs, now at work in northwestern Iowa, has recently been engaged near Burlinton. He gives out the impression that he is a hunter, and in that way is enabled to get into the very midst of the fishermen and to place them under arrest before they know " where they are at." During tho past year he has made a good many arrests and has destroyed wagon loads of seines and other illegal apparatus. A lot of this stuff was captured in the vicinity of Muscatine. "Iowa steps closely upon the heels of stately New York as a butter-producing state," says the Creamery and Dairy. " Bovina is the banner township in Now York, but Iowa can show an entire county that shipped out three tons of butter for every square mile of its territory. And it was all made with the cheapest food and sold equal with any. The name of this county is Bremer. It contains 12 congressional townships of 36 miles each, and Dairy Commissioner Tupper reported its gross shipments last year at 2,632,693 pounds. At Marshalltown the temperance people have been making it lively for the drug stores. W. H. Kelley, the leading druggist of the city, had to pay a fine of $COO,for abusing the privileges of his permit to sell liquor. At Bedford every druggist in the town has been indicted. At Sioux City the Floyd Valley Flax company was incorporated last week by S, Gore and D. A. Holmes of Sioux City and Emil J. Hanset of Belgium, with a capital of $100,000. The company has commenced work on a flax and hemp tow mill. The country within a radius of 150 miles of that city produces three- fifths of the flax raised in America. The total number of hogs packed at each of tho five principal packing points in Iowa, during the year ended March 1, 1893, was: Sioux City, 313,993; Cedar Rapids, 299,945; Ottumwa, 254,244; Keokuk, 86,142; Dea Moines, 67,401—a total of 1,021,705 hogs. Gate City: Mrs. D, C. Bloomer of Council Bluffs is entering into her reward. She is an old lady now and was always one of great intelligence and noblest qualities." But heavens, what an uproar her Bloomer costume and dress reform movemeut 50 years ago made. She was ahead of her time and now the women all over the world are paying her tribute and getting together all her writings made a half century ago for that work and place of woman which is now going to the front everywhere. Coal in paying quantities has been discovered at Dayton, a town on the Sioux City branch of the Northwestern in Webster county. Council Bluffs is the only city of considerable size in the state in which the republicans did not make gains this spring, and in Council Bluffs the republicans polled a vote which two years ago would have been considered phenomenal. B. W, Blanohard of Dubuque is still in hot wajtev. No sooner was his first libel suit disposed of than he was again The Telegraph of Thursday . Bjftnobara of fte fixed his bond at $200. It was signed by Louis Brin, Jr. This charge grows out of an attack on Judge Utt which appeared in the Ledger last Friday concerning his activity in the prosecution of Brown of the Ledger, who was last week convicted of libeling M. D. Nagle in the Chicago Sunday Sun. Blanchard is also under indictment for accusing Utt of perjury. Sioux City had a bad scare last week. A mad dog ran amuck there and was only killed after a four hours' chase by by the police. Ho bit 10 other dogs during the chase, some of them severely. A few of them have been killed, but the others are at large. The mayor has Issued a proclamation ordering all dogs killed or locked up. It is said one or two people were bitten, but tho police deny this. At Dubuque E. B. Brown, convicted on charge of criminal libel in the Chicago Sunday Sun, was sentenced by Judge O'Donnell to pay a fine of $200 and stand committed until paid. The judge, in passing sentence, spoke of the enormity of the crime of secretly libeling others, and believed the verdict of of the jury was righteous. A Dixson girl accidentally dropped a hot curling iron down her back tho other day, while she was curling hot- back hair, and it lodged under her corset. For a few minutes she did nothing but practice Delsarte and the feather movement—executing meantime abril- liannt staccato vocal accompaniment. ALGONA SOOBED A POINT. Tho Next State Contest to lie- Hold Horo—Our Contestnuts Fared Well lit Orliuioll, but Did Not Got First Plnco. Algona was successful at Grinnell last week in one respect at least, if not in all. The state oratorical contest next year is to be held here, this result being attained through the exertions of Prof. Dixson, who is to be congratulated upon his success, especially in view of the fact that several Iowa towns presented strong claims, Iowa City among the rest. The fact that Algona possesses as fine an opera house as there is in the state in which to hold such a gathering was no insignificant factor. Algona will entertain all that come right royally. Prof. Dixson, Olive Salisbury, Maud Cowan, Mattio and Maggie Haggard, and Lulu Clarke, who went to the state contest at Grinnell last week, returned Saturday evening. Algona was not successful in the contest, though she has no complaint to offer, since her contestants did admirably. Miss Salisbury rendered " 'Zekil" in a manner so creditable as to win much praise, and Prof. Dixson tells us that many insisted that she was entitled to first place. The judges' markings, however, left her out, which shows she had strong competition. Of the entire programme the awards were as follows: Oratorical, Monticello first, Carroll second; dramatic, Waverly first, Winterset second; and humorous, Waterloo first, Iowa City second. The contest was spirited throughout, and our delegates speak only in praise of the treatment accorded them. DEATH OPJDK. PETERS. He Expired Thursday, Soon After Returning from the West. Dr. G. H. Peters died at Bancroft last Thursday evening. He had just returned from Monrovia, Cal., where he went about Jan. 1, in the hope of obtaining relief from his trouble—consumption. But the disease seems to have had a firm hold upon him and cll- matie influences failed to have any beneficial effect. Deceased was about 35 years of age. A few years ago he came to this county from Strawberry Point, Iowa, and purchased a large tract of land in Ramsay township, where he carried on farming on a somewhat extensive scale and was very successful. He was elected supervisor from the north end, and was honest and conscientious in the discharge of his duties, winning the confidence of all the people. He was a. graduate of a Chicago medical college, and practiced a year at Strawberry Point, his old home. His mother, who resides there, was with him in Call- forniaand returned here with him last Monday. In the death of Dr. Peters Kossuth loses one of its best and most valuable citizens. He was unmarried. , Arbor Dny In Iowa, In Iowa Arbor day will be celebrated on the 28th dly of this month, when the maximum number of trees will be greatly enhanced. Appropriate exercises will mark the day in the public schools of the state. A feature of this year's observance in Iowa will be the selection of a state tree and flower. This will be decided by a vote of the teachers and scholars of the state and will be an interesting event. The oak, the maple, and the elm are among the trees to be voted upon, while the flowers are the rose, the pansy, and the golden rod. The result of the vote is to be sent to the county superintendent not later than May 5, and th« ooun- ty superintendent's report to the state 8uperiB.tjedent w,ho announces the re- $a,cbj tree
