SHAW WANTS .MORE MEN LOCATION WILL OUT NO FIGURE Asks tor Drilled Meto to Complete the State's Quota—Other War Notes and News. The Northwestern train bearing Company F to Des Moines carried also the boys from Emmetsburg, Webster City, Toledo, and Lyons. Like the others it was switched at once to the state fair ground tracks, and the soldiers did not get off in the city. The camp is called " McKinley" and J. Bush Lincoln of Ames is in command. Gen. Lincoln was a confederate soldier u der Fitz Hugh Lee during the rebellion and is the ablest officer of our national guard. He will undoubtedly bo a brigadier general of the volunteers. Late last night Gov. Shaw issued another call for volunteers. The companies are not full enough to make up Iowa's quota. His call haa this clause: "Enlistments to complete Iowa's quota will be accepted regardless of location. Any person of suitable ago, height, weight, and supposed fitness, and who has been drilled in the national guard or In any cadet or military organization, and who desires to enlist, will apply at once to the sheriff of his county. Each sheriff is required to report by wire as early as Thursday noon, April 28, 1898, the number of available men thus making application. No undrilled men should apply. Transportation will be forwarded as required." Whether this means that new volunteers will be put into existing companies, or whether new companies will be recognized is not known. There is much doubt about the hospital corps and it is possible that a lot of surgeons and assistants will not be wanted. The dispute is whether Gov. Shaw can reoi-ganize the corps and change it. Who Gen. Lincoln's staff will be is also a matter of doubt and speculation. Company F's Roster. Following is a full list of the members of Company F, and of those held in reserve: Capt. Thos. F.

Editor L. H. Mayne of Emmetsburg s a member of Company K. The Tri- buns says: He has been going in his shirtsleeves lately to get hardened for service. a The Ringling circus offers the war department 25 elephants, which they said would render good service in Cuba. Some have served in India, and neither he swamps nor the underbrush in Cuba would interfere with their utility. Emmetsburg Tribune: Algona sports are . reviving horseback riding. A troop of a dozen of them take regular ecreation in this way. Keep it up, entlemen, Uncle Sam may need some cavalrymen ere the impending tempest subsides. Workmen were sent to the fair 'rounds Sunday to begin the work of jutting the state's electric light plant n working order. The plant will be all ready when the guard mobilizes and ;he camp grounds will be illuminated at night. Iowa's proportion of the call for 125,000 men is 3,772. The present strength of the guard is 2,400, but the captains all have scores of ex-guardsmen and men who have had years of military raining in readiness to enlist and the companies can be filled up to the quota required in a very few hours.
