I Dfcs MotiSTES, April 4*—At a meeting neid at the Commercial Exchange for the purjpose of considering the guarantee asked for by the directors of the fetate fair, the Serii Om Sed came up tot frequent consideration. It was fevident that the most favorable sentiments we«*o entertained toward the carnival. Various plans for making 1 the entertainment a success were suggested. Everybody agreed thai it Would be easier to raise $10,000 for the Seni Om Scd than 85,000 for the fair. In case the fair is not held, it was generally agreed the Seni Om Sed should be held. Plans are suggested for a week's carnival of all manner of amusements. These include raws and tournaments of all kinds, base ball, foot ball, band concerts, fireworks, parades and a bewildering variety of brilliant features. ANOTHER CARLOAD OF RELIEF lovrn Cnban Relief Committee Sends Another Cur. DKS MOIXKS, April 4.—The second car load ot supplies for the starring Cubans has been sent from DesMoines.

The car will go over the Chicago Great "Western to Chicago and thence over the New York Central to New York. G. S. Perry, of the state committee, said that arrangements have been made by the committee to meet all contingencies. If war eventuates between the United States and Spain and it is found impossible to send on the supplies to the Cubans, they will be sold in New York and the proceeds •will revert to the state.

Judge Bishop rendered an opinion in the district court to this effect. 'Dixon sued the state boani of dental examiners to compel them to issue to him a license.

Democrats Decide to Walt Till War Matters Settle. DES MOINES, April 2. — The democratic state committee decided not to decide on the date or place of holding the state convention until the second Tuesday in May. It is understood that the members of the committee think the result of the wars and the rumors of war in the east, and the policy of President McKinley in mak- »ng war, ought to delay the holding of the state convention because of the influences that are liable to play on the congressional elections. Moore's Shortage Increased, BOONE, April 3. — The investigation of the books of ex-County Treasurer Moore by Expert Andrews reveals a further shortage of $1,890. The matter will be formally presented to the board of supervisors and acted upon by them at the April session. It is believed that this cleans up tho books and all the crookedness has been tin- earthed. The bondsmen will be called upon to meet "tho deficiency," This makes the shortage near $10,000. Moore is now in Fort Madison. •Coon Rapids robtofflco COON RAPIDS, April 2.— Thepostoftice sit this place wus burglarized, the safe doors being blown to atoms. The miscreant secured about $75 in cash, a gpodly supply of^stamps and other valuable papers.

Her condition is fell Doud. April 1.— Andy Bichurt of place, fell dead in front of the bank. Apoplexy is supposed fee/the e^use. The deceased was an n4 highly respected citizen and been •» yesjijent of this county years. J.~-'4.'he l?-year- accidentally Thieves broke into the postofiice at Grand Junction recently by prying open the front door. They made a thorough search, and all they got for their trouble wns S.I.60 in stamps and few pennies. No search is being made for them. On the ground that M. E. Lewis, his son-in-law, induced him to deed away his property by representing the instrument as his will. August Van Dc- steeg, of Sioux county, wants the court to set aside the transfer. He made affidavit that as he cannot rend English, he asked Lewis to write the will'as his amanuensis, and that the latter drew up a deed instead. The property is worth $50.000. Near Murengo recently the wife of Charles Holclcu wns instantly killed by the accidental discharge of a shotgun in the hands of an only child, a daughter of 12 years. Mr. Holden had just returned from an early duck hunt, and, placing tho gun in a corner, sat down to his breakfast, the wife sitting opposite. The child picked up the gun and it was instantly discharged, the charge passing through the heart of the mother. The gun was of the hammer- less kind. At Keokuk a few days ago Mrs. John Singleton created a sensation by leaving her baby on the bed, slipping out of her clothes and out the front door in a nude condition. Stripped of every stitch of clothes she walked through the most fashionable part of town to the business street, where a policeman, stopped her by throwing his overcoat around her. She was taken home in a buggy. She had been acting quccrly for a week, and her mind is so completely deranged that she will be removed to the asylum. At Des Moines recently Judge Conrad made an order directing the sheriff to go to the Anamosa penitentiary and return to Polk county Betsy Smith, where, according to the order, she is to be confined in the county jail until such a time as she can be tried again on the indictment charging her with murdering her husband, Michael Smith. In reality, the making of the. order is the beginning of the end of the Smith case. Betsy in all probability will never be tried again, as the witnesses in the case have become scattered andean never be got together again. She will therefore, in all probability, be set free. Ottuinwa. dispatch: Mrs. Bcck- with, mother of Warren Bcckwith, son-in-law of Robert T. Lincoln of Chicago, who is signed to pitch for tho Ottuinwa club in the Western association, called on Secretary Russell and begged that tho contract be cancelled, offering to pay all expenses incurred. She stated that a position had been se- lured for Warren in the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy offices at Crcston, and his father-in-law, as well as her family were much humiliated by his persistent efforts to play ball. She said Lincoln had agreed to help his son-in- law if he would agree to settle down. The release wus granted. Bristow dispatch: By the overturning of a lantern in a large warehouse filled with baled hay the most disastrous fire in the history of the city was started at 7:30 p. m. For a time the flames threatened to destroy the entire city, but by hard work by the local department and assistance rendered by neighboring towns the fire was confined to that portion north of the Chicago Great Western tracks. The following property was totally destroyed: Large grain elevator und warehouse, property of W. L. Luse, Minneapolis; warehouse and u large quantity of cement, stucco, and baled baled hay, property of Coonley & lllen- fritz; city storage building, containing hay and grain, property of Coonley & Illenfritx; in tho Luse elevator was stored a large quantity of grain belonging to L. D. Shaw, all of which was destroyed. Tho Great Western depot caught fire three times und wus badly scorched. The loss, which can only be estimated, will undoubtedly reach $50,000. , $35,000 to loan at once upon improved town properties. Good agents wanted, Iowa- Deposit & Loan Co. DCS Moines, In.

Everything is prepared for flight. The boy king will be taken to San Lucas I)e Bariracdas, Andalusia, where a yacht is kept ready for sailing.

I.eo May Bo Assassinated. , WASHINGTON, April 4.—Fears arc ex- ' of the republicans copy- Alice DKS MOINES,/ April >!2. —A right has been granted to Mrs. Uolehan, for her dress cutting system. We have secured the issue of the French patent to Gcorgo W. Cox und 13. E. Sinull, of Stuart, Iowa, for the Electric Fire Engine tested in our city last week and have applications pending therefor in other foreign countries. In 188i.', the writer sketched a harvester and binder on the inventor's farm, near Eddyville, that cut wheat and automatically formed gavels and bound them with straws picked there- from as the machine advanced. The inventor while bonding down to watch the operation lost an eye by the contact of the moving pui't. Lately, the same man, \Vm. 11. Gray, has triumphed in producing- a corn harvester that cuts and binds satisfactorily and overcomes difficulties that have heretofore defied the efforts of all competitors in the art. We have secured a plurality of patents and a multiplicity of claims covering allolemcntsand sub-combinations of his invention for which the essential generic claims were allowed last week. Valuable information about obtaining, valuing and selling patents sent free to any address. Titos. G. OIIWIG & Co., Over (50,000 oil wells have boon sunk in the United States.

Senator Morgan, of Alabama, says: "If such a crime should be committed the country would never be satisfied until our soldiers should plant the stars and .stripes in M'ad rid and make the Spanish nation a reminiscence of history. All Europe and all hell could not stop the southern people; and the northern men would go with us." Spanish Torpedo Flotilla. WASHINGTON, April 4.—Advices from Madrid state that the Spanish torpedo flotilla has just reached the Cape tie Verde islands. As it has taken the flotilla nine days to reach these islands from the Canary islands, it should, going at the same rate, require twenty- six days from now to reach Porto Kico, Maryland Republicans on Money.

Spanish advices say the elections for the popular branch of the cortes have passed off, on the whole, quietly. The indications arc that tho government of Senor Sagasta will have an .enormous majority, estimated at 300 of the 433 seats in the congress. It is said orders have been issued for the transfer of the Twenty-fifth regiment of infantry to Dry Tortugus. The fact that this regiment is made up of colored troops is regarded us quite significant in showing the purpose of tho war department to concentrate colored troops in the vicinity of Cuba, inasmuch as it is recognized that the negro is better ublu to withstand the Cuban climate than white men. There are three other colored regiments in the army, with un aggregate strength of over !i,000. London dispatch: Forty rapid-fire five-inch and six-inch guns, completed by the Arjnstrongs and destined for the United States, will be shipped immediately. Lieut.

Foraker and Frye resolutions wont to tho foreign relations committee. Mason followed the introduction of the resolutions with a war speech.

Marsh of Illinois, chairman of the house committee on militia, introduced a joint resolution declaring war between Spain and the United States. Mercer of Nebraska introduced a Cuban resolution similar to that introduced by Senator Foraker. Tho liouso devoted the whole day to tho consideration of the bill to pay certain claims for stores and supplies furnished to tho union by loyal citizens of tho south during tho war. SENATE. Washington, March 30.— The situation in Cuba wus only referred to incidentally. During the consideration of tho Alaskan bill, Wolcott, chairman of the committee on postofflces and post roads, made a remarkable and caustic arraignment of the secretary of the treasury on account of the secretary's flippant treatment of a request made by Mr. Wolcott's committee. HOUSE. A wild and uproarious scono occurred in the house to-day, when Bailoy, tho democratic leader, attempted to fovpe the hand ,.,,__ upon a proposition to WOMAN AND THE WHEEL* from the Oaiette, Delaware, OMo. , The heaHhfnlness of bicycle riding £(».women is still ft disputed question between eminent physicians and health reformers.! ' Used in moderation it surely creates for women a means of out-door exercise, the (benefit of which all physicians concede.. Used to excess, like any other pastime, its effect is likely to be dangerous. ' The experience of Miss Bertha Reed, the geventeen-year-old daughter of Mr. J. R. Reed, 385 Lake St., Delaware, Ohio, may point a moral for parents who, like Mr. and iMrs. Reed, have experienced some concern for thoir daughters who are fond of wheel-. Injf. In the fall of : 00 Miss Bertha who had ridden a great deal, began to fail In an ttlttrmiug manner. She grew steadily paler and thinner, and it appeared she was going 'nto consumption. Rest and quiet did her absolutely no good.

When a man begins to suspect thai he is a fool it will not be 'long before he knows it. overrule the speaker and pass a resolution recognizing the independence of tho Cuban republic. He was cheered in the crowded galleries, but tho members of the majority refused to support him. When tho vote Was taken, only two republicans—Messrs Achcson and Robbins of Pennsylvania- broke from the party linos. The house spent tho day on the naval appropriation bill. Several times tho Cuban question came up und each time tho galleries cheered tho speakers who favored immediate action. SENATE Washington, March 81.—Iu the senate pending a vote on tho motion of Fryo that a resolution reported by him from the committee on foreign relations yesterday asking tho president for Cuban consular reports ba recommitted to his committee, Allen, of Nebraska, mudo> a speech in favor of Cuban independence. Lodge reported from the committee on foreign relations a bill directing the president to purchase the Danish AVcst Indian Island St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, or any of them for naval coasting station und appropriating £5,000,000 for the purpose. HOUSE. Three speeches which stirred tho assemblage in the house to its depths were made today by Grosvenor. of Ohio, which, it was assumed, spoke for the administration, and who practically pledged it to the cause to free Cuba; Mr. Bailey, of Texas, the democratic loader, who announced the democratic position as for free Cuba, without war if it could bo avoided but with war if necessary; and Mr. Johnson, of Indiana, who spoke for peace, declaring that it was our duty to go ' to tho extreme in magnanimity in order to avoid the horrors of war. Littlo progress wus made in tho naval bill. SENATE. Washington, April ].—The scuuto spent almost tho entire day in tho discussion of tho resolution reported yesterday by tho senate committee on foreign relations for tho acqusition of tho West India islands owned by Denmark, am' tho session was closed by the practical withdrawal of t.Jae resolution by Senator Lodge, its an'>7r. Ho stated that tho debate had developed such a wide difference of opinion in the senate where there had heretofore boon such unanimity that he would not further press the matter at a time when the president needed the support of all senators of all parties. 11OUSK After an exceedingly turbulent session of six hours, the house passed t'uo naval appropriation bijlund then adjourned until Monday. The war spirit was manifested in all tho speeches arid overrode the naval committee itself by increasing tho number of torpedo boats and torpedo bout destroyers to twenty-four, the bill us reported providing for but twelve. Tho umondmrmt ot Cannon, chairman of tho appropriations committee, to reduce tho number of battleships to one, wus buried under an overwhelming majority. Cannon, during tho course of tho day, announced the belief of a majority of the members that wur would bo upon us within a week. Colorado Gold Field.
