Boies has appointed a committee for that purpose consisting of A. W. Swalm of Oskaloosa and Judge Mitchell of Charlton, and It Is assumed they wilt go to the bottom of the case and report the facts as they find them. GOT. Boies, In speaking of the situation, said this committee was appointed on the 6th or 8th of the month. He was not exactly certain what day, but It was over a week previous to the appearance of the Tribune article. In regard to the charge made against Madden he said: " I have been aware for some time that there probably has been a laxity of discipline there which would result from the choice of a man for the position of warden that was entirely inexperienced, but I had hoped that Mr. Madden would.remedy that state of uffajrs. I suppose the legislature knew that ho was inexperienced when they elected him. Had Mr. Madden been a democrat I assure you that I would have been much more strict in making those rules that I have a right to make in regard to the management of the institution; but. as I said, he was elected by a republican legislature and I consider that it was in a measure responsible, and so as long as I was not satisfied that the affairs of the state were being jeopardized I was more lenient with him." The fact that the governor appointed a committee to investigate a week before the Tribune article appeared gives color of truth to the accusation. Yet it may be, and no doubt is, an exaggerated statement of the case so far as the Tribune correspondent is concerned, and the investigation is likely to estab- this fact. Yet Mr. Madden owes it to republican members of the last legislature, whose creature he is, to give the committee every possible aid in getting at the facts. This he promises to do. The charges are serious, and if true he is a fit subject for removal. If not true he is entitled the exoneration which nothing short of the most rigid investigation can bring. meht there is something more to be considered than the mere making of good roads. The preservation of them after they have been secured is quite as essential, and in no better way can this be accomplished than by having our wagons made in accordance with the suggestions here given. MUCH fuss and feathers results from the alleged incarceration of the duchess of Sutherland for contempt of court, and the telegraphic dispatches seem to be of unwarranted length in describing the details of an affair which led up to this unprecedented action. It transpires that the sentence was subsequently commuted in part, and the lady of royal blood was permitted to return to her villa, where, the next day, she wept bitterly and worked the sick act so successfully that her physician made a certificate to the effect that she was too ill to be taken to jail. The duchess is no doubt a very amiable lady, but was adjudged, according to European court parlance, a "first-class offender," for which she should be made to pay the penalty. Her illegal act was extraordinary and provoking, and the sentence of the court, as regards royal blood, is said to bo without precedent in England. It naturally creates a good deal of comment, but there is little reason for it. Just, wherein a duchess Is any bettor than any other person who behaves himself will be difficult for Americans to understand, and if she wilfully violates the laws of land or the order of the court should take the consequences and the she not play the baby act to escape them. If the good duchess will come over to this country and perform the caper of which she is said to have been guilty, she will discover the alacrity with which our magistrates will mete out even and exact justice, without stopping to consider whether blue blood courses in her veins or not. And the populace will not become excited about it either. main in his castle on the Thames. When America Is not good enough for an American—especially one who has made his millions here—it is time for him to become the renegade that he is. An Ohio man named Riley has refused an oftce, and a good one at that The Cedar Rapids Gazette says it makes one feel old as he thinks of the changes wrought by time within his life. It seems only a very few years since a man would have been chased out of Ohio by the populace for daring to openly and shamelessly decline an appointment. A Washington dispatch says that W. P. Hepburn will leave for Iowa on Saturday, or possibly on Friday. He expects to attend the grand army encampment at Keokuk, and immediately commence a vigorous canvass for the senatorship. Those who know the vicious and vindictive spirit with which the New York Sun has opposed the world's fair and everything and everybody connected with it, because the great exposition was not located in New York, will appreciate the following bit of sarcasm from the Chicago Tribune: "We take it for granted the editor of the New York Sun will not attend the Columbian exposition. There will be nothing he would care to see. Moreover, the water and other beverages would poison him, buildings would fall on him, thieves rob him, and the fierce, howling blasts from Lake Michigan chill him to the marrow—if he has any. Let those misguided mortals who choose to do so rush to Chicago and meet their doom. He will stay at home with his Sun and shine on in his customary way." Editor Delevan of the Esthervillo Vindicator has asked for a change of venue in the trial of his libel suit, and has made an affidavit that Judge Carr is so prejudiced against him .that he could not try the case Impartially. It is one of the royal rights any man has to petition for a change of venue, but it can't be possible that Mr. Delevan really thinks Judge Carr is prejudiced against him. The judge isn't that kind of a man. AS SEEN IN DIXIE'S LAND, Iowa Editors on jrheir Annual Jannt View Many of the Southern Cities. Oil Top of Lookout Mountain—Prosperous Atlanta—A View of the Ocean —Notes of the Trip. F. R. Conaway's Brooklyn Chronicle is flying high. A recent expansion makes it eight pages, eight columns to the page. Whew! but it is a hummer. And he promises to make it better than ever. It was good enough before. IT has not been so very many years since the man who would have suggested the making of a wagon, the wheels of which did not " track," would have been hooted at and pronounced a fit subject for an insane asylum. He would have been regarded as a shining example of crankism run mad, and the adoption of his idea would have been left for a generation less wise than the present one. But this is the very thing that has been and is being done now. And not only is being recommended as . proper and wise, but some cities in Iowa have already passed ordinances compel- ing persons hauling heavy loads on their streets to adopt the wide-tire wagon, the hind wheels of which do not follow in the tracks of the front ones. This has by many been regarded as an innovation which could never find favor with the majority, and only afew weeks ago, in a meeting of farmers and others in this county, held for the purpose of discussing road improvement, the idea of non-tracking wheels was scouted us Impractical. But the good sense of the proposition is at once apparent when we come to consider the real utility of it and the good results which must follow its adoption by all those, either in city or country, who are engaged in the hauling of loads of extreme weight. The four-inch tire is of itself a wonderful factor in the lessening of the motive power required to move a heavy load. Those who have made the subject a study assert that a large per cent, is gained by this method. The Studebak- ers of South Bend, Ind., have made practical tests, and an article describing them and the results attained appears in the March number of " Good Roads." In one portion of the article it is stated that— What is described as a novel sight is told in the following dispatch from Hampton Roads, under date of April 20: "Columbus, 400 years ago stood upon the deck of the Santa Maria and saw a new continent. Today a quarter of centuries' has been bridged. Quaint and pigmy crafts, like those in which ho crossed the trackless sea, come for the first time within the waters of the republic which reveres his name. The day was perfect. The land hung low and indistinct in the distance all around the fleet, except out towards the sea. From that direction came three war ships of the Spanish squadron. Behind each one of them was an odd and miniature ship. The caravels were decorated with as many flags and fluttering pennants as a Christmas tree." Sam. Clark says: When a man is going to do a foolish thing he may think about it as much as he will, but he won't think out a wise way of doing it. The Chicago Tribune notes that "congressmen are making the same old complaint that they cannot live on $5.000 a year. The unaccountably slow rate at which they die off shows that they are mistaken." " You can start 580 pounds more with a 8- inch tire across the fields with the same amount of power exerted than with a \y,- inoh tire. "You can haul 805 pounds more with a flinch tire across the fields with the same amount of power exerted than with a \y>inch tire. " On hard roads you can start 035 pounds more with a three-inch tire with the same amount of power exerted than you can with I-inch tire" The Eagle Grove Gazette quoted what the Courier said about Harvey Ingham, who was down south with the Iowa editors, and credited it to "Bro. Warren of THE UPFKK DES MOINES." And now the Des Moines Register reprints it from the Gazette, and it has gone broadcast over the state. One inference to be drawn is that "Bro. Warren" has take» advantage of Harvey Ingham's absence to slander and malign his reputation. We protest, in the name of all that's great and holy. We never did it. We said not a word about it. Hinchon is the man who has brought about all this trouble, and he alone must atone for his misdeeds. " Bro. Warren" is responsible for what he says and is willing to stand the consequences; but to have one of Hinchon's funny items charged to him is too much. We protest with al] the intensity of nature against this infamous proceeding. It is a worse slander on "Bro. Warren" than was Hinohon's screed about Harvey Ingham. We had not intended to mention the matter at all; but it has now assumed such shape that the exercise of nature's first law becomes imperative. Let us at least be accurate, whether we are funny or not. IN THIS NEIGHBOKEOOD. Bode has a new postmaster, a good Scandinavian democrat, G. J. Peterson. A gravel train and a large force of men will soon be at work on the Milwaukee road preparing it for the fast train. At Spirit Lake's second election on the electric light question the vote stood 205 in favor and only one against. The Beacon regards the proposition of the company which will put in the plant as a very favorable one for the town. The Democrat partially confirms a rumor that has been heard before: Postmaster Utter is repairing his farm residence, and the boys say he will soon become a tiller of the soil. Personally he is not saying very much about the matter. Estherville Vindicator: Mr. Perry, father-in-law of E. V. Swotting, came up from Algona this morning to visit old friends here and at Swan Lake. He reports Mr. Swetting's family well and himself enjoying a fair degree of health. The car of the United States fish commission has been at Spirit Lake for three days securing assortments of Spirit Lake fish for the world's fair. The parties in charge claimed the catch was the finest that has been received yet. Bode Gazette: August Tilges, living nine miles northeast of here, broke his arm last Saturday night, both bones of the forearm being fractured. His brother's boy, P. Tilges, also dislocated LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Tenn., April If!.—The Iowa editors or part of thorn at least, who remained on Lookout mountain last night to get the morning view over the valley, found that the weather had hot been arranged for their especial pleasure. They were " above the clouds"—clouds of fog so dense that it was difficult to see oneend of the magnificent Lookout Inn from the other, to say nothing of viewing the seven states which are said to be visible on a clear day—the same kind of clouds beneath which " Fighting Joe" Hooker's men captured the fortification in 1863. Fortunately we arrived last evening early enough to get an idea of the scenery, look out on the long range of Missionary Ridge, and down towards the battle field of Chickarnauga, as well as over the rather attractive city of Chattanooga, while a couple of darkeys between them told the story of the battles. One of them would talk awhile and then the other would break in with "Now, Bill, let me obsquatulate," whereupon Bill would subside. The conversation on the part of the editors was mainly conducted by Mose Jacobs, the noted newsboy of Des Moines, who is to give the Register a graphic account of the trip. Mose's voice was just suited to Lookout Mountain, and was undoubtedly heard in the whole seven states. "Bill, what's your politics f" was one of Mose's questions. uS° w Ao° ss ' you 1{ nows my politics." No, Bill, how do you vote: are you a republican or a democrat?" "Say, now, boss, you know well enough how I vote. Can t have my politics any ways but perpendicular no how." In ans'wer to another question Bill added that "when the darkey votes the way they wants him to it gets counted all right. But when he votes the way he wants to somehow it gets lost in the Rhnffln AS the evening advanced the shuffle. electric lights of the city, which lies at the foot of the mountain, 1,800 feet below, came out and formed a very pretty picture.

Yesterday nearly all day we ranged near the Tennessee river and through these hills, from 600 to 1,500 feet high. But Lookout is very steep towards the river, and affords one of the finest views from its summit to be found in the United States. Several large hotels now adorn the crest and the delightful air makes it a favorite resort. Three railways reach the top. We went up on the broadguage but the terrific rain in the night, when the lightning seemed to be flashing on our windows and the thunder rumbling on the roof, caused a landslide and we were compelled to return by the cable road. As we came down in the mist preparing for the enthusiastic greetings of How did you like the sunrise?" and "Beautiful view, wasn't it?" we passed St. E!mostati6n, made the subject of romance by Augusta Evans Wilson—anything but romantic as we saw it. AT JACKSONVILLE. JACKSONVILLE, April 15.—Our ride from Chattanooga to Atlanta was for a dozen or more of our party, and we drove first to Bonavehture cemetery, where long avenues of great oaks festooned with Spanish moss, which swept the ground, presented a beautiful view, ,then to an ocean passenger steamer lying at the wharves, then to meet the mayor and finally to Col. Estell's office. Here among other interesting curiosities was some confederate money in a frame and with it a little poem which was written on the back of a bill by one of the victims. The first verse runs as follows: * " Representing nothing In God's earth now, And naught in the waters below It, As the uledge of a nation thnt passed away. Keep It, dear friend, and show it, Show it to those who will hind nn cur To the tale this trifle will tell Of liberty born of a patriot's dream, Of a storm-cradled nation that fell. Another selection from it ran: " Too poor to possess the precious ores, Too much of a stranger to borrow, We Issued today our' promise to pay 1 And hoped to redeem on the morrow." And the final couplet was: "Keep It; it tells our history o'er From the birth of our dream to Its last, Modest and born of the angel of hope Like our hope of success—It passed." The afternoon was devoted to a visit to the beach. A ride of 20 miles and we were at the Atlantic as the tide was coming in and the waves were rolling up the long sand beaches which stretch as far as the eye can see. The Atlantic coast in the south is flat. Here at Jacksonville we reached it today after a two hours' steamer ride on the St. Johns river, larger than the Mississippi is in Iowa,. A long, level beach backed by flat stretches of marsh and swamp forms the coast line. To those who saw the Pacific a year ago at Monterey and San Diego the view was not very impressive, but many of the party had never seen the ocean before and the hours passed quickly. The largest oyster beds of the south are at this Tybee beach, and although the high tide prevented our seeing the " powl dowdies," it did not prevent the manager from fishing out a bunch and opening them for four delectation. This afternoon we go to St. Augustine and from there tomorrow south to Palatka and across to Tampa spending three days in the state and returning to Jacksonville. From there to New Orleans and then north again. We have a very pleasant party of 160, travel with three new Pullman coaches baggage and day cars, and have made as high as 58 miles an hour. These southern railroads make good time and the "Nancy Hanks" train from Atlanta to Savannah is said to be the fastest in the world, making 60 miles an hour byschedule.

Carroll has a business firm named Nockels & Guam. No explanation appears for there being no G in the first name. tire. These tests were made, as will be seen, with a 3-inch tire. It must be assumed that a 4-inch tire would give correspondingly better results, This is not mere guess-work, but the result of actual experiment, and there is no possibility of its being successfully con- troverted. The chief virtue of having the wagon so constructed that the hind wheels run four inches wider than the front ones is found in the fact that the ground surface thus covered is eight instead of four inches; and what would more surely tend to the leveling of rough roads than this very thing? Both ideas are in the line of not only securing but preserving good highways, and we believe it is only a question of a short time when the wide-tire, non- tracking wagon will come into general wee.

There is no call for private armies in America, and the advertisement, "lletainers to Rent," must be taken down. - *— — • William Waldorf Astor, the multi-millionaire landlord of New York, has bought the splendid estate of Cliveden on the banks of the Thames from the duke of Westminster, and will make it his home.

Emmetsburg Democrat: It can't always be legal business that brings Attorney Sullivan of Algona to this locality, he comes so often. Mr. Sullivan has a keen legal mind, but it does not seem reasonable that such a large share of his practice comes from this county. Come, J udge, clear the atmosphere. Spirit Lake Beacon: Mrs. Abbie Gardner Sharp arrived early in the week and will settle down for the summer in the "Log Cabin" at Okoboji. She has recently been on a successful lecturing tour in South Dakota, where she visited with mournful interest some of the p6ints along her terrible route as a captive in 1857. Goldfleld Chronicle: While the fish commissioner was going west on the Burlington Friday, he noticed a young man shooting fish a few miles west of town. He pulled the bell rope, got off and went back and investigated matters. He then came to town and got put the necessary papers and put them in the hands of Constable Field, who pulled the fellow in, and he paid $13 for a few fleeting moments of pleasure. Fort Dodge Chronicle: In looking over some old papers recently Willis Reese found the first copy of the Fort Dodge Times issued in 1868. In it sugar was abvertised at from 5 to 8 pounds for $1 and teas at from $1 to 1.50 per pound. Contrasted with the present price of 17 pounds of sugar for $1, these prices are high.

PORT TAMPA, Fla., April 17.-It was a hot and dusty party which plunged into the surf of the gulf at Tampa Port this evening, after one of the swiftest rides over made across Florida. The programme called for an average of 60 miles an hour, which is possible in this level country, and leaving St. Augustine at 8 o'clock in the morning stopping at Palatka an hour, at the famed fountain of youth— the spring of Ponce De Leon—a half Hour, and for dinner at Sauford, we were in Tampa before 5 o'clock. The ride was among orange groves and through trackless forests. The dust and smoke were like our worst in August, and the temperature such that ono Ia . d y of the party dated three letters with August, each time unconsciously and then corrected by writing in April' We passed Tampa without stopping and after our bath in the surf had our Let it be made a matter of record that the 20th of April, in the year of our Lord 1893, witnessed one of the .worst blizzards this section has seen during the entire winter. Under ordinary circumstances this storm would not be entitled to special newspaper mention, but the circumstances are not of the ordinary sort, since it came on the heels of two weeks of as fine spring weather as any country can boast, and aftev a majority of the farmers in the county had about completed their seeding and were well along in the preparation of corn ground. The roads were dry, hard, and in some places very dusty. Congratulations on the state of the weather were the rule rather than the exception. Now all this is changed, and roads are muddy, but. not bad. The storm began here Wednesday in rain, which continued until about 9 or 10 o'clock Wednesday night, when it turned into snow. Accompanied by a strong wind it continued close on to 48 hours—a genuine Iowa blizzard in all respects except the matter of temperature. ' The weather was not cold, the mercury indicating about 30 degrees above zero during the entire storm. It is not probable that any particular damage was done, though it is said that stock suffered slightly by reason of open sheds and in some cases poor protection. Well-kept cattle had shed their winter coats, and were necessarily tender and less able to stand a storm, of this character than in mid-winter. But a four-inch snow fall at this time of year is not without its compensation, ine ground was unusually dry, and the snow melting gradually soaks into the ground and becomes of inestimable value as compared with a heavy rain fall, in which much of the moisture would necessarily be carried away. It is not possible that any damage can result to supper at the famous " stands on piers at least a Inn," which quarter of a h nmn f U, o State Capitol, the homes of Hoke Smith and the late Ben.

Also let him re- Iowa railroad by-gone days, J. S. Jenkins today resurrected a call for a meeting of the citizens to raise money to build a steamboat to run between Fort Dodge and Des Moines. The names of many who have since passed away appear on that call. It bears a date of April 13, 1853. It is not recorded, but those who were there will remember that the steamboat was never built. At the close of the ride the mayor and governor met the party and President Young and W. M. McFarland responded for the editors in the commercial exchange rooms. The talk turned inevitably upon the relations resulting from the war, as it did yesterday at Savannah, and all who spoke for the south pledged her loyalty to the union, i hey, of course, reserve the darkey question to settle for themselves, and they nowhere repudiate their past position, but as Col. Estellof the Savannah News, and Judge Given of our supreme court, both veterans, answered each other on Tvbee beach yesterday, and in the most fraternal way pledged the blue and gray to work together, no one could fall to be Impressed that whatever issues are still to be settled, the l^leMlt^.^t'T will never mile out in the bay. Tomorrow we KU to Tampa. Our visit to St. Augustine began yesterday afternoon. It brought us to what is undoubtedly the chief point of interest in the south. The ancient landmarks which recall the earliest settlement on the continent stand side by side with the most mag- nificient products of modern art and architecture. The old fort, begun before 1600, the old church, the city gate, the little streets, the plaza with its slave market, and the odd shops and homes stand for the days of Spanish settlement, the Seminole war and the civil war; while-the Ponce De Leon, Alcazar, and other modern hotels the church and home of Henry B. Flagler, who, according to our driver, has spent $15,000,000 R excusin"> what he has in his railway, are on a scale of modern magnificence which cannot be appreciated from a written description. There are many handsome hotels in the United States but the Ponce De Leon so far surpasses all that our party had ever visited that ^Krfe?.^" 8 - *\*eter is one of gram already sowed. None of it had sprouted, and even if it had, the best authorities tell us it would suffer no injury whatever. So on the whole we are bound to accept this storm as a blessing in disguise—not intended for our immediate comfort so much as for the good it will do later in the season. I hat view is shared by most people who are inclined to be philosophical rather than fault finding, and we believe it the correct one. Let us at least accept the peculiar conditions as being intended for our common good. Elsewhere In Iowa. That the storm was general throughout Iowa is shown by the telegraphic reports from all parts of the state. It also extended over several western states, the reports from which are similar to those in Iowa. The Iowa reports, are as follows: KEOKUK, April 20.—A violent snowstorm raged all day. The wind blew a gale. The Mississippi river is rising rapidly tonight and is almost twelve feet above low-water mark. Fears are entertained of a repetition of last spring's disastrous floods. Dwellers on the low lands are uneasy and are preparing for the worst. DES MOINES, April 20.-The storm hero yesterday and today has been one of the worst in Iowa this year.
