The sash and door makers of Dubuque will close their factories July 4 to 10 to give their employes a chance to visit the world's fair. Other manufacturers may do the same. A monster excursion of workingmen from Dubuque to Chicago July 4 is proposed, but the railroad agents do not encourage the hope that special rates may be had. They even say that the usual Fourth of July excursions will not bo made this year. The democratic state central committee hold a meeting behind closed doors. From an authoritive source It is learned that it was decided that no nominations for United States senator should be made by the state convention, thus giving Gov Boies a chance for the gubernatorial nomination and election afterwards to the United States senate, if the party succeeds in getting a majority in the legislature. Des Moines was decided on as the place of the next state convention. It is expected that Iowa will furnish at least 600 excursionists to the international convention of the Y. P. S. C. E.,-at Montreal in July. The Iowa Montreal train will leave Chicago the morning of July 4, and a i-ate of one fare, $10, for the round trip has been made. Miss Belle Anderson, seamstress, was seriously shot at Mason City. Two boys were shooting at a mark with a 22 calibre rifle, when accidentally a bullet struck Miss Anderson. The doctors probed for the bullet, but it could not be found. The officers to be elected at the general election this fall are governor, lieutenant governor, railroad commissioner, supreme court judge, superintendent of public instruction, nineteen senators and one hundred members of the house of representatives. Of the hold-over senators sixteen are republicans and fifteen are democrats. Hon. John A. Kasson, whom Iowa has been pluased to honor in the past, has been visiting Des Moines this week. Since the last campaign he has been engaged in literary work at Washington, except a few weeks when he delivered a course of lectures at the Baltimore University. D. F. Sawyer of Iowa City foolishly went into the crowd at the Chicago fair with a $500 diamond scarf pin and came out without it. D.

They T^oft Sioux City Yesterday Morninn—To Puss Fort I>odgo To- jnorrow. Doc. Middleton was the first of the cowboys to arrive at Sioux City, 450 miles from Chadron. He had averaged 65 miles a day and his horse was fresh. Joe Gillespie and Rattlesnake Jim were only a few miles behind. The humane society officers examined the horses and found them well cared for, and after a night's sleep they started yesterday morning on the 500 miles to Chicago. Late reports of the famous cowboy race which is to cross Iowa through Fort Dodge are as follows: NEWPORT, Neb., June 17.—Word reached Newport last evening that the famous riders in the cowboys' race from Chadron would reach this village some time during the evening and all were eager to catch the first glimpse of the now famous men, but the sun went down and night came on and no trace of the riders could be seen in the west. Among the throng of watchers were some of Doc. Middleton's old neighbors and friends, men who had known him in the past when he knew every foot of ground in Dock county. At 10:35 p. m. the tramp of horses' feet was heard coming up the village street. On inquiring the way the rider was directed to the livery barn of George Garber. Soon the news spread that one of the famous riders had arrived, and after a few minutes was seen to be carefully tending his horse, and after giving him a drink of oat meal water and feed, the stranger lay down uud slept soundly until 12 o'clock this morning, when the word was passed around that two others had arrived. They were found to be Doc. Mid.dleton and Joe Gillespie. Both men were tired as well as their horses, and after attending to their horses all went to the Lee hotel, where they fo.und a bountiful supper prepared for t^era, Af|ep they had eaten they '-"-rie,wed, Jas. Stephens is mosaic design of rattle snake rattlers. Although a hideously looking ornament, it was presented, or rather made for him by the ladies of Chadron and gives him the name by which he is called out west, "Rattlesnake Jim." Joe Gillespiecamo inridingono horse and leading another. He is an intelligent looking man about 40 years old. He is a farmer living 25 miles south of Chadron and has led the race so far; his horses look well. Doc. Middleton is very tired but his horses are all right. The rest are either lost in the sand hills or laid up for repairs. Doc. Middleton, Joe Gillespie, and Jas. Stephen departed fresh and bright from here at 6 snarpthismorning. All had several hours' sleep and their horses were feeling in splendid condition. Word was i-cceivcd from Long Pino that Campbell and Douglass left there at 6 o'clock this morning. They arc following the route on the south side of the track. STEWART, Nob., Juno 17.—Doc. Mid- dloton and two of the other cowboy racers from Chadron to the world's fair passed hero this morning at 8 a. m. It is 211 miles by rail from Chadron to this town. BASSETT, Neb., Juno 17.—Joe Campbell, the rider from Boomerang, and Dave Douglass, riding the Elmohorses. arrived in Bassott at 7:85 a. m. and took breakfast. There are five cowboys ahead of them and two behind. Joe Campbell will make the trip with but one horse and has made a wager of $250 that he will not come in last. His horse looks fine and he himself is cheerful. Campbell is not to spend a cent of money from Sioux City to Chicago. One of the Elmo horses is a little lame, but otherwise in good shape. WAUSA, Neb., June 18.—Special: A large crowd of people watched for the cowboys hero since early morning, many from the surrounding towns and country being on hand to see the noted racers, this being their registering place. They came up on a slow trot in front of the Saxton house and dismounted, walked up to the hotel and put their names down. Gillespie was the first and Stephens the second. Five minutes afterward Doc. Middleton arrived and registered. The horses were to all appearances in first class condition. They were all given a drink of water and all three started together on their race to the world's fair city. The balance of the racers, as far as can be learned, are from five to seven hours behind. This place is 65 miles from Sioux City, Iowa at the Big Fair. The ladies of Iowa are to make an exhibit of pantry stores at the big fair as soon as it can be collected. It will be in the booth decorated with corn by the. Sioux City ladies. Iowa comes out on top in the June butter test with Wisconsin a very close second. The other exhibiting states are Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana, Illinois, New York, Vermont, Now Hampshire, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota. Canada was also an exhibitor and leads in cheese, followed by New York. The historical room of the Iowa building now contains a work of art of great interest to lowans. This is a sculpture female figure in marble, "The Peri," the work of the late Mrs. P. W. Ketcham, of Mt. Pleasant. Mrs. Ketcham spent years in Rome and her work as a sculptress is well known. Her design for a soldio7-s' monument in Des Moines, for which the Iowa legislature has appropriated $100,000, isalso on exhibition in the Iowa building. "The Peri" is a recognized masterpiece and has been loaned to the state building by Mr. Keteharn, the artist's husband, at the request of the commission. Notice.
