THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS, The presidents of the republican clubs of Des Moines wilt unite in a request to the state league of republican clubs to hold its meeting in Des Moines on Tuesday, Aug. 15, the day before the republican convention. The invitation will in all probabilities be accepted and the meeting will be a big one, as it is an important feature of the campaign. Very few western states are so well organized with clubs as Iowa. _____ The Chicago Herald facetiously remarks: Corn and chinch bugs are the leading topics at the Iowa building. Everybody talks of the former, because the building is lined with it, and the other is called to mind by the tin flics a peddler sells. Great crowds of people from the praries fill the structure every day until there is a constant jam of whiskers and straw hats crowding about the register. The book itself is several feet wide with 1,500 pages and big enough for the recording angel. At least 600 names go down each day." Field &Bro., who failed recently at Cedar Falls, have been arrested. The charge is obtaining, money under false pretences. The state board of medical examiners, which has been in session considering the question of recognizing certain medical colleges which fail to come up to the requirements of the board, has reached a decision. The colleges especially failing to comply with the minimum requirements of the board are: The Columbian university, Washington; Barnes College, St. Louis; Baltimore college, Baltimore; Ensworth college and St. Joseph College of Physicians and Surgeons, Keokuk; College of Physicians and Surgeons, St. Louis; and Marion Sims college, St. Louis. All the colleges that do not comply will be excluded. Doctors cannot practice in Iowa coming from any but recognized schools without passing a strict examination. senate, which Senator Wilson, republican, now holds. Ho hopes to be Allison's democratic colleague, and upon that point will turn the battle in Iowa this year, with Boies as the veritable democratic leader, no matter who may be nominated as the candidate for governor. Al. Swalm, who was on the committee to investigate affairs at AnamoSa says: Seventy per cent, of the Iowa prison population is made up from the nonresident class—tramps and professional thieves, who make a raid from the great cities into the interior, to be nabbed. And the " jag" is at the bottom of it all for about the same percentage. The Davenport Democrat estimates the daily number of Iowa visitors at the world's fair at 2,000 to 5,000. Gov. Boies has appointed Mrs. Cora Weed of Muscat! no on the soldiers' monument commission. TheOskaloosa Herald says Mrs. Weed was very influential in securing the appropriation for the monument, and all tho papers praise the appointment. She takes the place made vacant by the resignation of Judge Wright. fdiWELf fe STOVES * \>viA. ^- ' JL *J •%•-.'• ^* ••'/!

The manuscript, which covers nearly 200 pages, is prepared in typewriter, but will not be given to the public at present. Those in attendance are C. E. Whiting, Whiting; August Post, Moulton; Chas. A. Clarke, Cedar Rapids; Ed. C. Lane, Guthrie Center, and Secretary Fleming. Over at Rolfe a few days ago the enterprising people of thut town gave a tramp a free ride out of town on a rail. This is a now way of dealing with the nuisance, but as the tramp was soon back in the city it would seem that it is not practical. Besides, it must be pretty hot work with the thermometer up in the nineties to go trudging a big, able-bodied tramp on a rail two or three miles into the country. The proposition to vote a five percent, tax on the property of Webster City to aid the Winona & Southwestern railway extension from 'Osage to Webster City, was submitted to the voters and the proposition was defeated by a vote of 458 to 209. Dissatisfaction with the conditions embraced in the proposition is the cause of its defeat. Capt. Yeoman of Fort Dodge is staying in Washington and doing his best to beat Cato Sells and the state committee slate. He wants to be United States attorney for this northern Iowa district. It is said his chances are good, as he was a Cleveland man when the rest were for Boies and anything to beat Grover. The Sheldon Mail noticing Col. Ormsby's boom for governor says: What we want and must have is a candidate who can take the stump and keep the democrats on a canter to defeat. This lets Mr. Ormsby out. The New York Sun says Iowa has now a democratic governor. Horace Boies, chosen in 1880 by 6,523 majority, and again in 1891 by 8,217. The Hawkeye state was carried for Harrison in November last by a substantial majority. The state officers elected were all republicans. The republicans have ten of the eleven members of congress and & majority |a ^e legislature. The 'democratic outlopk is, therefore, not altogether rea.ts.uring, b«t Gov jhj Counties of Iowa.

Friends and patrons of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway: Nearly all our sleeping cars are now in service on our regular lines to Chicago, and are being filled to their utmost capacity with world's fair excursion travel. In another two weeks sleeping car berths will have to be spoken for days in advance of their being used. There are no more sleeping cars to be had. The rush of people to the world's fair has commenced. Day coaches will soon be all that can be furnished to care for the crowds yet to move. I urge upon you the necessity of starting NOW while there are yet comfortable accommodations to be secured on the trains and in the hotels and boarding- houses in Chicago. August and September may be top late for those who can go now. The fair will be open every day in the week, including Sunday, until 10 p. m. The special feature days are every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 14t3 R. F. HEDRICK, Agent. The Practicable llond Law. The Creston Gazette publishes an item which is in line with the resolution adopted at the late road meeting held by the Algona grange: "In one of the nortnern counties of Iowa the board of supervisors four years ago concluded to reserve two per cent of the road tax to be expended under the supervision of the county surveyor, which official was a first-class civil engineer, He employed a special force of workmen and went to work, and as a result the board announced after two years of experimenting that better road improvements were made by the amount thus intelligently expended than by all the rest of the tax put together and paid out through the usual channels."
