Representative Parley will have the ladies to deal with when ho comes home. His vote defeated the woman suffrage resolution in the house. It lacked one of n constitutional majority and he voted against it. On the committee he was favorable to gran ting the submission of an amendment, and was counted, on to vote for the measure His vote against was a surprise to its promoters. Representative Ludcl was main sponsor for the women and in an interview after the defeat he said: "If Boyd and McCully hud been in their seats today the resolution would have passed, and I had every assurance that it would pass without them. I know how every member would vote, and I did not know until he voted that Parley had changed his mind. I have encountered more political opposition in this matter than I ever met before in anything that has been before the legislature in the three sessions I have been a member." The vote in the house was: Yeas: Republicans, 37; democrats, 8; populists, 3; silver republicans, 2. Nays: Republicans, 25; democrats, 21; silver republicans 1. Not voting: Democrats, 2; silver republicans, 1. -$- -f- -t- The bill to legalize primary elections was beaten in the house. The vote was 50 to 44. The whole discussion turned on the effect on the Des Moines city election. -j- -j- -}The democrats have formally abandoned the liquor issue. A joint legislative caucus by a vote of 21 to 12 decided not to endorse a manufacturing bill. This was done after a stormy session of several hours, and though every effort is being made to keep it secret the whole story leaked out. When the caucus met last week a joint committee was appointed to draft a bill to allow manufacture of liquor. This committee prepared a simple little bill, allowing the manufacture of wine from grapes and currants and cider from apples grown within the state without being subjected to any tax. It was made unlawful to sell any such wine or cider on the premises in quantities less than one gallon, or to minors or persons in the habit of becoming intoxicated. The penalty for violation was $100 fine. The committee agreed to this bill, and submitted a report recommending this bill as a starter, saying the committee was not able to agree further and asking for more time in which to prepare a bill to allow the manufacture of all intoxicating liquors. When the caucus met this report and bill were adopted, but the motion was immediately reconsidered, and Porter of Appanoose led off in opposition to the adoption as a caucus measure of the bill which he had approved as a member of the committee. Senator Ranck, who read the bill to the caucus and was its author, vigorously opposed the idea of dropping the liquor question as party measure. He declared it was time to have it settled whether silver or the well- grounded principle of reasonable legislation or the liquor question was the paramount issue with the democratic party. He was, however, voted down by the free silver republicans and populists who were admitted to the caucus, aided by democrats who wished to retain their allegiance. •*- -T- -i- Representative Ray of Grinnell, the uniform school book man, was up to the Humboldt editorial meeting. He is one of the leading editors of central Iowa. He says his school book bill is all right and ought to be adopted. _i_ -i_ _i- The board of control bill has been introduced. It is about as has been outlined before. The first contest was over getting a day for hearing in the senate. This was finally fixed at March 3, This date means a long session of the legislature. -!-•*•-*Senator Lothrop prepared a senatorial re-districting bill which made a general overhauling in the districts all over the state. By this bill the counties of Emmet, Dickinson, Clay and Palo Alto would comprise the Forty- Seventh district, Kossuth being taken off and that and Winnebago comprising a district by themselves. The committee, however, has prepared a substitute which leaves the districts very nearly as they are now. •T- H- -*Hon. P. A. Smith, the member from Greene, father of the printing and binding bill, was elected president of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association at Humboldt. Lafe Young, state binder, was present and voted for " Pa," and congratulated him afterwards. Lafe never bears malice. -7- -i- -T- The Carroll Herald observes that the legislature is asked to throw a legal safeguard around the barber "profession." Barbers can't see why they should not be protected the same as doctors, lawyers, butchers, bakers and candlestick makers," says the Herald. " Meanwhile any old thing is eligible to the editorial profession. The only requisite to the editorial business is ability and disposition to tell the truth." Iowa house voted for woman suffrage. He says they betrayed their party. BREEN VEBSTJS KUHN. The Noted Case Again Up for Henr- lng at Garner .Last weelt, The struggle for the possession of the eight-year-old Kuhn child was brought again to public notice by a habeas corpus suit, brought last week by Breen for the possession of the child. The case was heard at Garner by Judge Sherwin, who held that Kuhn was entitled to possession. Chas. A. Cohenour and J. W. Sullivan appeared for Breen, and Attorney Ripley for Kuhn. This is merely a continuation of the contest begun some years ago, and which has been through the supreme court. The parties live north of Wesley. The history of the case, briefly, is that Kuhn married a daughter of Broon. The wife died, but before her death the child in controversy was given by the parents to Breen. Kuhn married again and brought suit for the possession of his child. The case was tried before Judge Carr, who decided that the contract, which was verbal, by which Breen came into possession of the child was not binding on Kuhn and that therefore he was entitled to possession. The case then went to the supreme court, where a decision was rendered last October affirming the judgment of the lower court, and in which it WHS said that they would not interfere with a finding of facts by the court below. The child was then turned over to Kuhn, having been In Breen's possession during all the litigation. The recent habeas corpus proceeding was based upon the theory that conditions had changed—Kuhn having married again and having three children by his second wife—and that the child's interests would bo better sub- served by being returned to Breon. It has been a long-drawn and bitter controversy, and it is hoped the case Is at last settled for good. DEATH OF MRS. JOHN SMITH. One of Aliroim's Host Known Ladles Dies Suddenly—A Itlow to the Community. The announcement in THE UPPER DES MOINES last Wednesday of the illness of Mrs. John G. Smith was the first intimation the public had that she was not in her usual good health. It was followed during the evening by news of her death, which occurred at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening. She was sick only a few days, being apparently well the Friday preceding her death. Her trouble was pronounced to be inflammation of the bowels, and its progress was so rapid that nothing could be done to stay.its ravages. .The funeral was held at the 1 hbnYe Thursday at 2 o'clock. Rev. Sinclair spoke feelingly of Mrs. Smith's life and influence, and chosen friends followed the remains to the cemetery. Mrs. Smith was an early resident of Algona. She was born in West Stockholm, St. Lawrence county, N. Y., Aug 14, 1841, being 50 years old at her last birthday. On June 18, 1868, she was married to John G. Smith in her New York home and came immediately to Algona. She has since lived here and here her family of six children— Maud, Kate, Grace, Lu, Howhind and Moore—have been reared. In these 30 years everyone who has known her has known her to respect her, to admire her devotion to her family, her unfailing cheerfulness and helpfulness in every relation of life. Her interest centered in her home, and she made it a model. But she mingled freely in society and had a wide acquaintance especially among the earlier comers to the town. Her death is a great shock, and coming so suddenly and so unex- pectly, it has caused a shadow of sorrow to rest on every home. In their deep bereavement the husband and children have without limit the sympathy of the community. A full line of H OOQS Langdon & Hudson. TBI/BFHOKB NO. IS. GBEAT DAY FOR MASONS.

Tho real reason, however, is poor health. I Col. Eiboeck of the Staats-Anzeiger ' is unhappy because 12 democrats in the A Notable Gathering and a Splendid ISiitcrtniiimeut. Tho fraternity which is known as Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons held a notable gathering last week. It was an all-day session on Thursday, when eight candidates were raised to the degree of Master Masons. Their names wore Otto Falkennainer, Stuart Green, M. P. Haggard, L. H. Milieu, G. F. Peek, C. C. Samson, S. O. Ward, and A. L, Webster. Trained teams for working the ritual were present from West Bend, Hurt, Bancroft, Britt, Rolfe, and Eagle Grove, as well as one from the local lodge. Over 250 Masons were in attendance, and the affair was one which was never surpassed in Masonic circles in the state. The work of the teams was most creditable and interestiug to the craft. The ladies of the Eastern Star chapter served a banquet at court house, which was provided by Algona lodge without expense to the guests. Tho master of Algona lodge acted as master of ceremonies and was a success. After prayer by Rev. Day Mr. Taylor delivered the address of welcome, which was well received and which was responded to by W. H. Chrismau of West Bend. Geo. E. Clarke of Algoua responded to the toast, " The Objects of Masonry," and in a witty and eloquent speech maintained his well-known reputation as a speaker. Col. E. S. Ormsb.y of Emmetsburg was to have responded to the toast, " Masons' Wives and the Eastern Star." Ho was not able to bo present, but sent a manuscript which the toast master read to the delight of all. Tho closing toust, " Tho Masonic Goat," was responded to by Kev. F. E. Day in an address which elicited laughter and applause from beginning to end and which was full of happy references to the vituul'iii a manner understood only by the craft. The work of the lodge was resumed after the banquet and toasts and the gathering broke up at an early hour Friday morning. Tho hospitality of tho local lodge was a famous success and every visitor was loud iu his praises of tho reception accorded to tho guests. Tho standing of tho local lodge has been greatly strengthened and interest has been quickened which insures prosperity to the fraternity. LOVELY LETTERS. " What lovely letters I receive from Mary Hopkins," said one young lady to another iu our hearing, and wliilo wo are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which wo likewise have of all who master tho art of letter writing, for such persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in soino school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $3.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $3.00 in one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so in the future.
