He is inclined to regard the Maine affair as an incident, to pass it over for the present and seek to secure peace in Cuba by means of negotiations with Spain. Despite the president's pacific utterances, as reported by senators who have talked with him, unusual preparations for War are being made. The Spanish torpedo boat flotilla has started from the Canary islands to Cuba and the American navy is being placed on a war footing. Admiral Sicard has been retired oh account of disability. He is succeeded by Captain Sampson of the Iowa and 'Fighting Bob" Evans succeeds to the command of the Iowa. Commodore Schley will command the flying squadron at Hampton roads. A SUBMARINE MINE.

Horn, county auditor, was on his way home along one of the principal streets of the city, when one footpad suddenly siezed him and another pressed a revolver against his head and demanded his money. He refused and the fellow fired inflicting a severe wound. As he tried to fire again Horn knocked up his arm, called for help, and the fellows fled and succeeded in escaping. The victim is well along in years, a veteran of the civil war. Holdups are becoming frequent in this vicinity. ROUND SUM FOR SENATOR A.

The house has also .passed the bill giving the historical building $30,000, and this has not passed the senate. IOWIUIB Knrmito to Alaska.

Such is the. statement made in the report of the court of inquiry which was considered by the cabine"t yesterday. The court docs not fix responsibility for the disaster, but the inference is that a floating submarine mine caused the destruction of the ship. While neither Spainnor Spaniards are accused, war preparations were pressed yesterday with unprecedented vigor and to-day the army uud navy of this country are on practically a war footing. Spain has been notified of the findings of the American board and asked for an explanation. REPORT IN WASHINGTON. IOWA • - . • - SENATE.

Harudoii, a well known farmer living south of Roland, was a few days ago .thrown from his milk wagon while his team was running and seriously injured. An ugly scalp wound was inflicted and two of the fingers on his loft hand were broken and the flesh torn from a third. It is thought that the scalp wound, in which about four square inches of the scalp is. torn from the skull, will not prove fatal.

CHICAGO, March 37.—"It looks very much to me just now as if war between this country and Spain was inevitable," said Interstate Commerce Commissioner W. H. Calhoun. Mr. Calhoun went to Cuba as commissioner of the government and investigated the condition of the starving patriots on the island. "I have h'oped until recently," he continued, "that the two countries would be able to find some way of adjusting the pending troubles without recourse to arms, but it looks now as if war were bound to .come. Everything Eeems to point in that direction. The nir is full of significance of preparation on both sides, and public sentiment in this country has even among the more conservative people come to regard war as the only logical outcome of the present situation." Spain Says It Cainu From Inside. WASHINGTON, March 37.—The Spanish government has cabled officially to Washington,^' that the Spanish naval commission hold the disaster to the Maine to bo of internal origin. The government of Spain, it can be stated positively, is not disposed to turn back the torpedo flotilla now proceeding from tho Canaries, and would be disinclined to consider a suggestion from this government tending to interfere with the disposition by Spain of hoi- own naval forces. ,,,, °L , *• yl «isant and Independence hospitals for the insane from §14 to SI 2, and tho Clarlnila hospital from $14 to $18; reducing tho per capita support fund of tho industrial school* from $11 to $10; and increasing tho minimum ago when children sliall bo admitted to tho Council Bluffs home for deaf and dumb from live to seven years. nousic.

The command at present comprises three vessels—the Brooklyn, Columbia nnd Minneapolis, all ocean greyhounds—but in a short time tho squadron probably will be swelled to about a do/en ships, including the St. Paul and the St. Louis of the American line, which were built so that they could be turned into efficient fighting machines at a few days' notice. SENATE. Washington, March SI—In the senate, :3acon, of Georgia, introduced a resolution that while the policy of tho United States was to maintain Honor it was also its policy at all times to maintain peace as long as consistent and especially in tho present emergency.

Some 200 men. arc digging sand from the old bed of the Almeiidarez river for the battery protection.

England Looks for War. LONDON, March 28.—There is little hope here that hostilities can bo averted between the United States and Spain and it is believed the revelation officially made regarding the destruction of the Maine will so combine the other factors of the situation, as to make war inevitable, though it is still regarded as possible that Spain, at the lust moment will see the hopelessness of maintaining their position and yield to the inevitable.

"Spain is exhausted," he is reported as saying. "She must" withdraw her troops and recognize Cuban independence before it is too late. By an immediate recognition she would obtain payment for a portion of tho war, debt and commercial advantages," Havana dispatch: It is known positively that negotiations between General Pando's emissaries and General Garcia and other prominent insurgents, in which the offevs of practical independence are said to have been made, l»ave proved an absolute failure. Pando's command is again moving eastward. The fact that the insurgent general, Gomez, remains inside the Jnearo-Moron troeha, in Pando's rear, •makes the latter a subject of criticism by military men in Havana. Premier Sagasta, of Spain, is quoted in a recent interview as spying UODSE. The house spent tho day in consideration of the naval appropriation bill. 1IOUSB. _ AVashington, March 25.—While the house in committee was considering tho naval appropriation bill a ruling, which iu effect compelled members to confine their remarks under the five niiuuto rule to the subject before the house, was made against Mr. Hartnuiu, sil. rep., who attempted to make a political speech.

As a result but four pages were disposed of. HOUSE. Washington, March 20.—Tho house spout tho day debating tho naval appropriation bill. Several speakers declared that war already existed between Spain and tho United States and every utterance in favor of aggressive action against Spain was applauded by the crowded galleries. Who Oivns the U. 8. Patent Office? DES MOINES, March 24.—We frequently hear complaints about the manner in which officers serve the people. Men elevated from the rank of private life to positions of trust, honor and emolument often assume an air of importance and haughtiness that is quite offensive to the humble citizen who, as one of the sovereign people has a right to expect civility in his intercourse with every public servant —from cross-roads postmaster up to president. Men who honor their office have the good sense to remember that tho poorest and humblest citizen should be served as courteously and faithfully as the proudest and wealthiest aristocrat. But, alas, how many dishonor their places and are servile and fawning to tho influential and indifferent, condescending or haughty to common people. And o.ften the lower the grade of the office the larger the degree of self-importance manifested Deputies and clerks frequently put on airs that principals are too modes tand sensible to assume. Occasionally we are glad to know, official importance and insolence gets wholesome rebuke from the dignity of private citizenship An instance of this kind occurred in tho corridors of the United States patent office and may serve as a lesson to all public servants who forget their duty. Early one morning an humble inventor and public benefactor was walking up and down in the hall quite complacently waiting for the doors to be opened. An official approached him with a look intended to annihilate the early caller and asked: "Do j'ou belong to the patent office?" The offended citizen with true manly dignity turned on his insolent interrogator and replied: "No, sir! The patent office belongs to me—and other citizens the United States!" IOWA LEGISLATURE. SENATE. Des Moines, March 32.— Tho senate ed a number of important bills. One introduced by the committee on educational. institutions makes it necessary for applicants for stato certificates to teach to pass on examination, the present law permits the issuance of these certificates to graduates of tho state normal school and the University.

The bill is the remnant of tho Cheshire amendment. Young's bill relating to levy and disbursement of county road fund passed. It gives to supervisors the charge of all the county road fund to bo expended 1 in or outside of cities. Bill providing for licensing and regulating stationary engineers was reconsidered and passed. nousn. The hftosc passed the board of control bill as amended by tho special bouse committee after probably the stormiest and most exciting quarter of an hour ever witnessed in an Iowa legislature. When the committee amendments, tho only important one of which was to give the board of control supervisory powers over the stato educational institutions, had been read and adopted, Niotert, chairman of tho spooial committee, moved that the bill bo passed to its third reading. A ruling of tho chair that this action could be taken by n majority vote caused an uproar which the speaker was unable to quell for several minutes. The bill passed to third reading, 47 to HI), and upon final passage received 71 votes to 20 against it. Other bills passed by tho house were Penick's bill providing for the listing and taxation of mortgages: Smith's bill to facilitate the drainage of wet lands ; Eaton's bill to prohibit illegal voting at primaries, and a senate bill relating to care and propagation of fish and the protection of birds and game.
