I.fctJ-lnfe a Special Tux rp->n Instil-ance Cotnpnnird ( plic-hl. 1)ES MOINES, "liny 20.—The (mention ol the const.it .1 tionitlity of th'c Inw for levying a special tax iipcm foreign insurance companies wnsup before Judge Holmes in a mild way in the shape of fe technical demurrer filed mid argued in the case of the Scottish Union National insurance Company of the U&ited Kingdom by their representative, Attorney McVey, and against 8tate Treasurer Herriott. The insurance company, which represents twenty others, paid the fees levied upon receipt of a notification irom the state authorities, but did so under protest, immediately thereafter filing 1 a suit to recover them and to test, the tax law. The case will b'e immediately carried to the supreme court. The foreign com panics claim that under the treaties had with this nation they are entitled to the same treatment as a local company, and therefore it is a violation of the amenities of international usage to override the treaty by legislating against foreign insurance companies. The question involved in the demurrer •was purely technical, and did not in- Tolve the issues in the case. DOWER RIGHTS. Supreme Conrt Snys They Cannot Be Contracted Away. DEsMoiSES, May 2:?.— In the supreme court at Dos Moines the decision of the lower court in the case of Edward Poolc vs. Emma M. Burkham, executrix, appellant, was aflirwied; opinion by Granger. Mrs. Mary M. Poolc died Jn DCS Moines county, leaving a husband and 318,000 in personal property. She left her husband, by will, $100. The executrix tendered him the bequest, but he spurned it, and brought suit to break the will and get his one- third dower. The court gave it to him, despite his agreement, dated Burlington, July 3, 1893, that when she died he would make no claim on her estate. The case presented the one question of whether or not a wife or husband can contract with the other about a distributive share of either in the other's estate. Before the adoption of section 2203 of the code of '73 dowel- interest could be the subject of such contract. KILLED HIMSELF. Prominent Business Man of DCS Jlolncs Takes His Own Life.

United 'Workmen Changes. WATERLOO, May 20. — At the biennial meeting of the Grand Lodge, A. O. U.

M.OIXES, May 23.—Amidst mingled cheersand tears, the gallant boys of the Fiftieth Iowa volunteers left Camp MeKinley Saturday to go to the front to fight for humanity and their country. It was an impressive sight as each of the three battalions, one after the other, marched proudly out to board the trains that were waiting for them. It made a scene long to be remembered and is the first of its kind since the civil war. While there was no large demonstrations, there was a tensity of feeling manifest that is not often exhibited in the presence of a crowd. Each of the three battalions were escorted part or all the way to their respective trains. The Fourth did the honors for the Third battalion, which was to take the Northwestern train. The Third regiment did a like service for the Second battalion, which was to go over the Bock Island, while the First regiment,'with Col. Dows at their head, led the way to the Wabash tracks, followed by the gallant boys of the First. As each battalion moved at a different time, the Third regiment band was able to provide music for all, which it did in an acceptable manner, playing such pieces as ''The Union Forever,' 1 "Marching Through Georgia," "IJcd. White and Blue" and"The Girl I Left Behind Me.." The First battalion left at 11 o'clock, the Second at 10 o'clock and the Third at u:4.">. Stnto Federal Ion of T-.alior.
