The efforts of members iu both branches of the legislature failed to cut down the $125,000 recommended by the appropriation committees for the Iowa exhibit at Chicago next year, and that is the expense the state will be put to. In the senate the $100,000 amendment was carried by a vote of 20 to 23, but on a reconsideration was beaten by a tie vote, Lieut. Gov. Bestow voting against it. Questions were raised as to his right to vote, and also as to the legality of the bill unless carried by a two-thirds vote, but both were disregarded. In the house 0 the §100,000 amendment was beaten by a vote of 57 to 88, and the bill was carried by a vote of 76 to 14, 10 not voting. It is now reported that the commissioners never expected the amount they asked, and are pleased at the outcome. Ah amendment ordering the Iowa exhibit closed on Sunday was beaten. ment and decrease of tax were all, not much would come of it, but the increase of assessment would not be uniform, but would bring up the property of the rich and of the poor to the same rate of valuation. Senator Gatch also pointed out the bad effect on the minds of strangers produced by high taxes, an effect that cannot be removed by telling about low asf sssment. The argument throughout showed the absurdity of the present system, and the benefits of assessing all property at its cash value. The various bills to tax mortgages, to have assessors stamp notes, etc., have gone with this bill to the future. This future awaits some statesman who will be able to arrive at some sensible system of taxation. What proportion various kinds of property should bear of the public expense, whether personal property should be taxed at all and if so how it is to be reached, what method can be devised whereby in all parts of the state taxes shall be paid on substantially the same valuations, these are questions that deserve more attention than they have had, and the answers to which materially affect the welfare of every citizen. feared their constituents." Sofa? as this applies to Mr. Smith there Is nothing in it and we suspect the same as to Mr. Morrow. Mr. Smith did not want to vote for the Gatch bill and would not have voted for itj Both Messrs. Smith and Morrow had points to gain by conceding question, but refused. something on this The Benedict home gets $8,000 from this legislature. There was a contest, but the supporters of the bill were in a majority. The home is for reformed women of the street, and is located at Des Moines. J. B. Swinburne of the Sumboldt Kosmos was robbed in Des Moines last week of a gold watch and $43. The Chicago Tribune says: "Mr. Allison of Iowa is said to be an ideal senator—studious, polite, stately, popular, and immensely useful to the senate as well as to his constituents. As for his personal ap pearance, he is described as ' well fed, well groomed, sleek, and smooth.'" T1TJS IOWA SILVER BILL. The house by a vote of 61 to 18 passed last Saturday Campbell's bill prohibiting making contracts payable in gold in Iowa. The text of the bill provides: " That the silver dollars containing 871% grains of pure silver, which have been or may heareafter be coined and issued by the minte of the United States, and all gold coins so issued shall be full legal tender within this state at their nominal value for all debts and dues, public and private, contracted after the passage of this act, anything in the contracts to the contrary notwithstanding, and in all such contracts it shall be optional with the debtor to pay and discharge such contracts in either of said coins." There seem to be two good reasons why the measure is superfluous. One is that no place is reported where money is not to be had by borrowers on an agreement to repay the loan in money, without specifying the kind. The second is as we glean from the Dubuque Telegraph, which is an authority among silver advocates, that contracts discriminating against any kind of legal tender are void, and have so been declared by the courts. Silver is the legal money of the country. The silver dollar will pay any debt that any citizen of Iowa has to y&y. In fact we have never seen a contract made payable in gold, nor heard of one being made in this part of the state. If such a thing exists it must be a, great rarity. If it wore being done, and borrowers could be compelled to pay in one kind of money and not in another, Campbell's bill would be proper and wise. For the legal money of the country should pay any and all debts, contracts to the contrary notwithstanding. Lawrence Bradley says "the only dissenting voice against woman's suffrage in Wyoming was that of convicts who had been iried and found guilty by women jurors. Wyoming today is the only stale to pa.v teachers equally regardless of sex; it is, too, the only state in which the percentage of criminal women has decreased within the last decade, though the population has increased 127.9 per cent." Robt. Graves, writing of oratory in this congress, says: " One of the finest orators of the house is young Mr. Dolliver of Iowa. Notwithstanding his gift, he lacks cofidence in himself and rarely takes the floor. Young men who are blessed with a reasonable amount of caution are rather timid about trusting themselves on the troublous waters of the house. It is a terrible place. With 300 keen fellows sitting about watching a chance to throw in a query, speaking in congress is a much more dangerous and difficult task than speaking in court or on the stump." OUIl ABSURD TAX LAW. This session of the legislature has not been unlike others in one respect. Measures of great importance have received scant consideration, while minor matters have taken up the time. One of the former was Senator Gatch's bill for regulating the assessment of property for taxation. It was debated in the senate Friday, but farther than that nothing came of it, and Iowa's absurd system of taxation goes on practically as before. Senator Catch's bill proposed to have all property assessed at its full cash value, and provided penalties for officials who should neglect or refuse to obey the law. The present law provides for such assessment, but it has never been obeyed, and property is valued at anywhere from 15 to 70 per cent., the higher rate being generally on the holdings of the poor, and in the newer counties where the taxpayers are least able to bear it. In his speech supporting his bill Senator Gatch said that a member of the committee had written to county auditors, and from them learned that assessments i-anged from 20 to 75 per cent., and ho urged with great force that this method worked nothing but injustice, the usual result being that property worth $1,000 is assessed at $400, while one worth $75,000 is valued at 20 and oven 15 per cent. The debate was not wholly confined to this bill, for Senator Bishop offered an amendment, which was adopted, providing that personal property should be assessed at its full value, after a man's indebtedness had boon deducted. Senator Bolter favored this, but Senator McCall said that it discriminated against the owner of real estate, and Senator Perry said it would greatly reduce the taxable property of the state. Senators Lewis, Mack, and Chuntry opposed this amendment and its adoption was undoubtedly taken ns a means for disposing of the whole bill, for the matter was indefinitely postponed on motion of Senator Gatch himself. But the debate on the orieinal bill is in- Btructive although nothing came of it. Senator Perry opposed the whole scheme. In his county he said farms wore already assessed at nearly their full value while mansions in Des Moines were assessed at 20 per cent. Polk county assessors would violate their oaths under the new law as readily as under the present. Senator Finn also opposed the bill saying that no good would coine of raising the assessments k and lowering the vate of tax. To this Chos. Aldrich's historical collection gets $15,000 for the coming two years. The house refused to consider the bill prohibiting hunters from trespassing on enclosed or cultivated lands, and the bill is lost. The bill making Phinney's Des Moines band a state institution for two years passed. The house Monday passed a representative districting bill. Kossuth is alone. Wright and Hancock are together, Humboldt and Pocahontas, Palo Alto and Clay, Osceola, Emmet and Dickinson. Rev. Will F. Barclay of old Algona college days writes to the Cedar Rapids Republican from Toledo, where he is now preaching, and asks: " It is given as a chief reason for the enactment of the Gatch bill that in such places as Davenport, Burlington, etc., it is impossible to enforce our present prohibitory law. Now suppose the Gatch bill becomes a law and Linn county votes on county option and the people of the county refuse to allow the licensing of saloons. How are you to enforce the law in your city with its mayor and council against enforcement?" iifgs was $5,448.93, an increase of $2,572.85 over February '91. This represents the business of but one of the two railway lines. Rolfe is to have a lively racingseason this year. A meeting will be held May 28, and another July 2, 4, and 5. At the May meeting $325 is offered, and at the July meeting $1,700 will be put up. Robert Henderson was at Elmore last week visiting his daughter. The Post says: "He says this country does not look much like it did 27 years ago, when he drove stage from Algona to Blue Earth City." Goldfield Chronicle: S. S. Sessions of Algona was a pleasant caller Wednesday. He came down to attend the Shearer-Tyler wedding. He went to Emmetsburg yesterday morning to take part in the big shoot. Elmore Eye: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES says The Eye slanders that "city of the second class." We don't nuther. We have too much respect for the hustling qualities of Kossuth's hub for such a thing. A flowing well near Cor with is a curiosity. It fills a six inch pipe and is only 56 feet deep. It is on the highest land in the county, and only a few miles away wells from 150 to 315 feet were dug. The Britt Tribune says this is a problem for Wm. Ward to tackle. Report comes from Jnckson, Minn., that " M. Richardson of Algona, Iowa, was in Jackson this week looking up the possible chances of an innocent (?) purchaser collecting the notes given the wire fence swinders by some of our Jackson county farmers last fall. It's our opinion that the 'innocent' purchaser racket won't Work worth a cent in this instance." There was quite a serious smash up on the Burlington road Tuesday morning near the stock yards in Emmetsburg. The morning passenger train The present tendency among democrats is all towards Cleveland. If it continues he will be nominated even if New York actively opposes him. Kate Field's Washington is irritated at the petitions coming from Iowa suggesting methods of regulating the world's fair. It seems that a society at Winterset has asked among other things that the art department " be conducted in accordance with the American standard of purity in art." This makes Kate mad and she styles our Iowa people " meddlesome prudes." Kate then proceeds to say: "There was a time when the American standard of purity, according to prudes, demanded pantalettes on piano legs. According to these same prudes, tho American standard of purity now demands the substitution of ' limb' for ' leg' in conversation. Know all men and women, in Iowa and out, that among artists, art lovers and a public believing man to be made in the image of God, the American standard of purity in art differs in no respect from the European standard. Know further that Mr. Halsey C. Ives and the efficient art commission of the world's fair are quite competent to decide what is pure art without tho interference of congress." The next state teachers' meeting will be held at Cedar Rapids, Dec. 27-30. Walt. Whitman, America's much discussed and undoubtedly great poet, died Saturday evening. He was born May 81 1819. ' Sam. Clark opposed the Gatch bill because it was too stringent. J. W. Richards reports from Des Moines that Senator Bolter don't like the idea of giving new converts to democracy the high seats in the synagogue: "He has not got over the elevation of Gov. Boies and Lieut. Gov. Bestow, and ho looks askance at the efforts being made by ex-Judge Day to'catch on.' Judge Day is a constant attendant upon the meetings of the senate, and the other day one of the democratic senators asked Senator Bolter what it was that called Day to the senate chamber so often. 'Oh,' replied the statesman from Harrison county, ' ho is one of those d d reformed republicans, and he thinks that he is a democrat.'" A copy of a paper bearing the cheerful title of the Tombstone Epitaph reached our table this week. It is published at Tombstone, Arizona, and is livlier than one might reasonably expect. Col. Eiboeck of Des Moines is disappointed over Gov. Boies' reappointment of Dunn of Dubuque as state oil inspector. He has been a candidate both times, and now intimates that German democrats stand no show with the governor. Putting Sovereign back as master of statistics for Iowa is nothing less than a joke. The idea of calling a man a statistician who deliberately published figures representing the number of mortgages on farms foreclosed in the state, and secured the figures by averaging the guesses of his correspondents. Figures are a farce under Sovereign's manipulation. from the south struck a freight car on the Milwaukee side track, demolishing the engine and baggage car of the passenger train. No one was seriously injured, but the express agent was buried under express packages and somewhat bruised. Elmore Post: Mrs. G. W. Pangburn is visiting with her parents at Algona. G. W. does not attempt to fathom the mysteries of- the culinary department in the interim, but boards at the hotel. He says it is easier Chas. Waldo came down from Minneapolis on Friday. He was on his way to Algona, where he will make his future home. He took a carload of goods with him and had to lay over here from 8:50 a. m. until 4:30 p. m. Bey. Eighmy has been attending a meeting of the Clear Lake park trustees. The News says the park grounds were leased to the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad company for the season. The Camp Meetin'r association reserves the privilege of holding the summer meeting and musicale in the grounds as usual. An effort will be made to secure Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage and Robert G. Ingersoll for lecturers at some time during the coming summer. Hampton Recorder: It is a saying that has passed into a proverb that there is no fool like an old fool. An exemplification of this saying has lately transpired up in Cerro Gordo county the chief actors being a widower nearly 70 years old, who resides nota thousand miles from Chapin, and a gay vounff grass widow who flourished hereabouts not long ago. It was at Mason City they met—and the old man now doubtless wishes they had not—and she professed to be infatuated with the attentions of the frosty Don Juan, and agreed to come do\yn and keep house for him and otherwise make it comfortable for him in the winter of his life. He loaned neru hundred dolars and his watch and she gave him a bill of sale of her household goods which she told him she had here in Hampton. The old gentleman came down for them and lo! they were not—she hadn't any. And he went to the train at Chapin but she ME MINMEADING f AK& 1'rof, Johnstone Gave a Creditable Performance, but He Nobody's Mind, Read "Muscle Reading" Would Ee a Better Name for It—What Papers Say of Him Elsewhere. Paul Alexander Johnstone came on Friday evening, showed how "mind reading" is accomplished, hud a good audience, pocketed his ISO, and went west. No one was disappointed, because he is a clever artist, the best since Bishop died, but we doubt if he left many convinced that he is anything but a muscle reader. None of his attempts involved mind reading. He knew what he was to do and did it by the guidance of a member of the committee. Tho nearest approach to doing something without direct aid was reaching up for his dagger in one act, and even then the upward motion was undoubtedly unconsciously given by the guide. His first feat was finding a lead pencil, which had been hidden in Dr. McCoy's pocket in the audience. He was securely blindfolded and, taking the hand of a member of the committee, went down and got the pencil very quickly. His second feat was to replace two members of the committee in a beligerent attitude, each holding a sword, after they had first taken the attitude while he was shut up in his room. Ho did this easily by getting the positions through the committeeman whose hand he held. His most difficult feat was the same in kind but quite complicated. He had someone, while he was shut in his room, go into the audience and stab a man, hide the dagger, and hide himself. Then a jury of twelve was called, a judge and two attorneys, and all seated on the stage. All then scattered to their seats and he, blindfolded, found the dagger, the murdered man, all the jurymen, lawyers, etc., and placing them all in their respective positions, brought up the one who had committed the murder. In all this he worked'quickly and accurately and on the whole gave a very entertaining performance. Allowing that he did it all by a delicate sensibility to muscular impressions it was wonderful enough and worth the price But when mind reading of admission. is claimed the show is a fake, for he did not undertake a thing where he read thought except through somebody's hands. If he had not known that it was a lead pencil he was after, and had picked out the lead pencil, that would have been a test; or if he could have placed the swordsmen in position without having someone take the position with him. But practically all he did was to locate things or people, and that by the aid of someone's hands, and however little anyone may intend to plenty oj good-looking fellows who can brush their hair on a six-foot ceiUnT but there is C. C. Thompson, who is • trifle over six feet; Cart John Leahder who is six feet two inches; Father Schemel, who is six feet three inches and in order to hold the championshin we claim F. A. Kehyon a resident, and he tops them all at six feet and four inches. That's way up. 8HBITS DIDN'T SOABE HIM. A Man Who Wanted to JLtve in a Haunted House or 1/ose $1OQ. A story has been going the rounds of a haunted house at Brooklyn, east of Des Moines, owned by a family named McAra. That specialist in spirits Bro. Conawayj who visited the place clearly exploded the report that "spirits" inhabited the house. The house is old and creaks when the wind blows. It has been kept well and every room shows that during Grandma Mo- Ara's many years residence there, was kept as tidy as could be. There is no reflection on her. The house creaks because it is old and for no other reason. But here is a letter to Mr. McAra from a citizen of Montezuma who thinks he has a snap. Office of the Hustler Restaurant, D. S. Richardson, Manager, Montezuma Iowa, March 21, 1892—Mr. McAra, Brooklyn, Iowa: Having heard that there is some house near where you live that is haunted and that there is no family that can live in it. Do there such a house exist? There is a story going the round here that the town or the person who owns the house is willing to pay §100 for any one who will live in the house three weeks. Is this so or is there any truth in the above story? Should there be anything to it I will on the money being posted undertake the same. I will live in the house on conditions three weeks for $100, or will forfit §100 myself. Provided I do not complete my tearm. Will make arrangements and state conditions upon the matter when I find out the statement is true. Please confer a favor by a reply. D. S. RICHARDSON.

On tho test vote on Eland's free silver bill tho members stood 148 to 148, 'and Speaker Crisp saved the bill by coming to the aid of the free silver men, Of the 148 againsl the bill 07 wore republicans and 81 democrats. Of the 14S for the bill seven were republicans, nine wore independents, and 183 were democrats. White and Butler were tho Iowa men to vote for the bill, all the others voting against it. The vote was preliminary merely, and the bill on final passage may fail. The new military bill passed the senate by 85 to 10, and the house by 65 to 24. It gives tho national guards $10,000 annually in addition to the ?35,000 already given by the state, and provides for the reorganization of the guards in the state. The Kelloy bill protecting the makers of notes passed both houses and will be a law. By it all notes for patent rights, etc., must contain a statement of what they are given for and also a clause providing that the maker can set up any defense he may have, no matter who holds the noU:. It will make all notes for patents, insurance, etc., non-transferable. The agricultural college gets $58,000, the state geological survey f20,rjrjO, and the weather and crop service #5,000.

The i a live- points indicate anything it is impossible to think honestly about a certain direction or place without involuntarily having the muscles act. The whole Delsarte theory of gesture is based on this well-understood fact that the muscles act with the mind, and that unconsciously certain movements follow mental conditions. Mr. Johnstone gave two performances at Monticello on this trip andothe Express says of his second performance: It was expected that Mr. Johnstone would execute some feats of mind reading independent of the assistance of a committeeman, whose arm he took while searching for hidden articles and desired persons, and that he might be relieved of the charge of being nothing but a muscle reader, but he did nothing of the kind. In fact when it was suggested to him that the committee would form a tableau, the .nature of which should be unknown to him, and he produce that, he very stoutly objected and told them that they must form the tableau that he suggested and he would reproduce it by picking out the persons concerned in it without knowing beforehand who they were. His actions and the manner of the work gave rise to the suspicion that he operates entirely through the muscles of the committeeman whose arm he takes. It is suggested that his touch is very acute and also that the muscles of his companion will unconsciously be controlled by the mind, and that the mind reader merely follows the "lead thus given him. In selecting his jurymen Johnstone made several mistakes which would have been carried onto IN PEOF, GILOHEIST'S COLLEGE, Elder Glass Made Sport of In n Lecture by a Student—A Lively Time. The Sioux City Journal of Monday contains an account of a lively contest between two literary societies in the University of the Northwest. Either through the action of the faculty or by good luck the lonians got away with the Othonians in a literary programme a week ago Friday. A week later, last Friday evening^ the Journal says the Othonians gave an entertainment, the feature of which was a "chalk talk" by W. A. K. Campbell, the only senior in the institution. Mr. Campbell delivered an illustrated lecture on the follies and foibles of the faculty and tho rival society. He criticised Dean Glass severely because of his change of heart in consenting to retract the order forbidding tho lonians to hold their pro- gramme the week before. One of tho cartoons represented the dean in a very undignified attitude astride a fence, and in explaining it the lecturer spoke in terms not particularly complimentary to the dean and other members of the faculty. . Previous to delivering the lecture Mr. Campbell asked the faculty for an < honorable dismissal from the school ( The faculty, Mr. Campbell says, hatt granted the request, and the certificate of dismissal, with statement of grades, etc., had been written out before the lecture was delivered, but not signed. After the lecture some of the faculty declined to sign it, and up to date have not done so.
