H, Balcom, THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS. Frank Pierce,, the notorious constable of Des Moinos, was convicted last week of manslaughter for shooting Wishard, a year or more ago. In this connection thoDesMoines Capital says: "Frank Pierce, it may be well again to state, was not enforcing the prohibitory law when he killed Wishard, nor had the tragedy anything to do with prohibitory law. Pierce was a scavenger, and the quarrel was concerning a dumping ground. For at least two campaigns before the tragedy Pierce had been voting the democratic 'ticket. These statements are for the benefit of many misinformed, hasty readers." A special from Dubuquo announces the forthcoming marriage of Capt. C. D. I-Iam, the governor's private secretary, and Miss Barber, The model of the group which is to surmount the huge block at the west, approach to the state capitol has arrived from Hartford, Conn. The figures were somewhat broken in transit, but have been mended again. Carl Gerhart is the artist. The group represents a pioneer in frontier costume, slouch hat, buckskin shirt and boots. His face is unshaven and hair long, with right hand shading his eyes he peers across the prairie, while bis left holds a hand-ax. By his left side an Indian sits, half reclining, two eagle feathers indicating his rank, and his bow grasped in his hand. On the other side is a youth, on the threshold of manhood, with firmly chisled, but resolute features. His dress is also of the western type. The figures are to be of heroic size, the central standing nine feet high. The buffalo head, which forms the drinking fountain, is no\v be/ 1 ing cast in the ensti The Sioux City Times says John C. Kelley of the Sioux City Tribune is booked to run against Perkins of the Journal for congress in the Eleventh. The last legislature appropriated money for a portrait of Gov. Kirk wood. The artist selected to paint the por- irait of the honored war governor is Mr. Geo. Yewoll of New York. Years ago this gentleman was an Iowa Cityan and as a boy gave evidence of the spark of artistic genius that lay hidden with- n him, awaiting proper training, to be 'anned into a bright flame. He sketched legislators and legislative incidents in that city, the then capital of !owa. In after years, in the latter part of the '50's, he went to the old world, studied his art in Rome and Paris, and now with an elegaut studio n New York, is recognized as one of .he finest portrait and landscape painters in America. Col. Raymond of Hampton has pre- jented the Iowa Agricultural college museum with the entomological cpl- ection made by his son, recently deceased. Adjutant General Greene has been in ihicago for several days conferring with General Miles and the world's directors in regard to taking. 1,000 of Iowa's troops to the opening of the grounds in October. His report upon he subject will be awaited with interest by militia men. The season for mall arm practice by the state militia, according 'to the new regulations, will begin May 1 and close Oct. 81. In ac- ordance with instructions received by company G all enlisted men of the uard are required to fire three scores of live shots each at 200, 300 and 500 yards. Those qualifying as sharpshooters and marksmen under Blunt's regulations l be permitted to wear the sharp- hooters' badges and marksmens' but- ons. The first newspaper in Iowa to use ypesetting machines will be the Sioux Jity Journal. It is said to have placed ,n order for 10 machines. They will oon be in use in the large offices. Secretary F. N. Chase of the Colum- aii commission has returned from Jhicago, where he has been with the xecutive committee to arrange for the owa building and secure a site for it. 'hey succeeded in getting a splendid ocation on the lake front and think hey can construct a suitable building or about $30,000. They took Archi* ect Joslyn of Cedar Rapids with them. ?he committee are enthusiastic over he chance to secure an elegant build- ng at so low a figure. They feel con- .dant that the Iowa building, general .ppearance and location considered, ccill compare favorably with other uildings and be the equal of any build* ng on the ground. The state executive council has dis- ributed the district war tax refunded y congress. The auditor was instuot- d to issue a warrant on the treasurer or that portion of the sum which is due he school fund, about $234,000. This eaves about $150,000 for the soldiers' monument. Robt. G. Ingersoll weighs 231 pounds. i f , in* jA. ' L ,. ,Ul
