The lands were originally included in the survey of Lost Island lake, one of the few meandered bodies of water in the north part of the state.

The mistake was discovered by a number of squatters on the lands and it was through them the department was led to correct it. They will make an effort to hold the lands. STAMP TAX DECISION. Federal Courts Decide Kxprem Companion Miut Pay War Tax. MT. PI-KASANT, July 81. — The agent of the Adams Express company at Ottumwa was recently tried on preliminary examination before United States Commissioner Hunter at Ot' tumwa for alleged violation of the revenue law, in not placing a revenue stamp upon his receipt for a package sent by express. When the time set for the habeas corpus proceeding arrived no application was filed for a habeas corpus, as had been expscted, 'but instead his attorney announced that the express agent would give bail for his appearance in court if the grand jury should indict him. It was understood this action was taken largely because the express company expected BOOB a decision of the matter iu New York and they did not care to risk the result of a decision from ' Judge Woolson. The action taken by the express company leaves the federal authorities free to proceed against the agents of this'company at every place where the company refuses to place the stamp on the receipt.

DK8 Mounts, August 1.—The state tax levy for 1898 was fixed by the executive council at 3.3 mills on the dollar on the $540,000,000 assessment of the state. This is an increase of .5 mills over last year, -when the rate was 2.8 mills. The regular levy is 3.2 mills, and added to this is the special levy of .1 mill for the building fund of the state university, making 1 a total of 3.3 mills. The levy theoretically will bring in 81,728,000 aside from the university fund, but in practice it is found that from 2J^ to 5 per cent o.f the taxes levied are never collected, so that no more will be received than is required. The last general assembly passed a law requiring the executive council to make a levy in 1898 which would produce $1,000,000 and a levy in 1899 which would produce $1,500,000. SUE VALLEY BANK. Suit to Recover Money Paid on a Forged Check. DEB MOINKS, August 1.—Last December Albert L.

The grain company has brought suit, against the bank for the amount in full. The grain company say.s that it has repeatedly demanded the $1,425 and repeatedly, to date, the demand has been reftised. Neither Miolcle nor the bank will cash up. Suit, therefore, is brought to oompel the bank to credit the grain company with 31,425 which Mickle has had in his jeans since just before Christinas.

Although the prince was extremely low on Wednesday, he so rallied on Thursday that he was wheeled to the dinner table to celebrate with his assembled family the fifty-first anniversary of his wedding.

NKW YOHK, .luly -SO.—Horatio S. Rubens, councellor for the Cuban junta, in an interview said the reason that Spain made peace proposals at this time was that Havana eon la not hold out much longer. -'I am advised," said Rubens, "that Havana's food supply is h-ulllcient for only about two weeks more. There are 200,000 civilians in the city and from 50,000 to 00,000 soldiers. Only two steamers have succeeded in running the blockade and their cargoes will not go very Jar among the 250,000 inhabitants. Madrid has been notified that Havana's condition is becoming desperate, and with that in view, and also with the pnr- . pose of doing* something before General Miles had invaded Porto Rico or I Manila had fallen, peace proposals I were made. They know very well in Madrid that Porto Rico cannot effectively resist Idiles and that the surrender of Manila is only a question of a few i Iffy s. Therefore they chose this as a fitting time to negotiate for terms of peace, assuming, of course, that the United States would stop fighting- at once and the weakness of Spain not be so completely revealed as it would be later." under the immediate rommand ritt.
