The day was bright and fair and thousands of lowans were in attendance. At noon a parade of Iowa people formed in the city ann moved .slowly out to the grounds. The Iowa Agricultural College cadets, of Ames. led the Way, followed by the Dodge Light Guards, of Council 1)1 tiffs. Various semi-military societies of Omaha joined in the parade. The Omaha Iowa club was also in evidence. • Several Iowa bands took advantage of the day to make a trip to Omaha. The way the parade was greeted along the line of march would indicate that Omaha has considerable respect for Iowa and her citizens. At the grounds the program prepared for the occasion wasbnlliant- ly rendered. Governor Shaw, Hon. R. G. Cousins and S. H. Mallory were the principal Iowa speakers, and they immediately followed President Wattles in a speech of welcome. Souvenir programs were -given the guests at the grounds.

OSKAI.OOSA, Sent. 23.— Jacob Movers stabbed and almost instantly Killed James Raymond, a man -who had been boarding at his house for the past few months. Moyers was insanely jealous of Raymond's attention to his wife. Moyers went to his home and found Raymond talking to his wife in her bedroom, under what he considered compromising circumstances, as Raymond had partially prepared for bed. having removed his coat, vest and footwear. Moyers sprung upon Raymond and drew his pocket knife. Raymond ran out into the dining room and Moyers followed. Raymond picked tip a chair and would have struck Moyers down, but the wife ran in between them. The enraged husband brushed her aside and struck Raymond in the right breast with the open knife. Raymond was mortally wounded. He ran out onto the porch, sat down into a chair and died a few moments later. Moyers seemed in a half crazy condition. He went into the house, sat down »nd did not resist arrest which followed almost immediately. against the third man. HMVA INSURANCE COMPANIES FILE. Foreign Insurance Companies File Argument in Discriminating Tax Case. DES MOIXES. Sept. 25.—In the suit of •the Scottish Union and National Insurance Companies, of Edinburg, Scotland, and London, England, against John Herriott, treasurer of state, contesting the constitutionality of the 3,'^ per cent tax upon their gross receipts, the argument of the appellant has been filed in the state supreme court. Interest in the case is common to all the outside companies doing business in Iowa, and for that matter to all companies in the United States, as similar laws have already been enacted in other states and probably will be in the near future in still others, unless the law is found to be unconstitutional, as the companies contend. This is true, not only of foreign companies, but of all companies doing business outside of the states in which they are incorporated, as the point upon which the illegality of the law is alleged is the discrimination in 'rates, foreign companies being taxed 3}.; per cent, companies outside of the state, 2>£ per cent, and state companies, 1 per cent. Reverse* Judge Wolfe. CLINTON, Sept, 25.—In the case of Bowes vs. the New York Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association to compel payment of 91 0,000 on the life of the late E. M. Davis, of Clinton, was, by consent of all parties, taken from the, jury and tried by the court. The court decided in favor of the defendant that non-payment of annual dues cancelled the policies, thus reversing Judge Wolfe's decision given recently in favor of the plaintiff. Allen Adainuon \Vliigsun Knopp. DKS MOINES, Sept. 24.—In the district court George F. Knopp was granted 41 divorce from his wife, Alice A damson Whissen Knopp, who married him for a consideration of $3,000 and then refused to live with him.

Many of tlie dealers are determined not to pay the tax. having been instructed by the American Tobacco Company to ignore the law. The company proposes to test the constitutionality of the law. At Indianola recently Ira Stubbs was sentenced to two and a half years in the Fort Madison penitentiary, and W. P. Bishop was sentenced to nine months in the county jail and was fined §300. The men were convicted of the crime of obtaining money under false pretenses from Philip Pilmer. livinguear Avon. They securedu loan from him by giving a mortgage on certain Wopdbury county laud which was washed into the Missouri river and to which they had no title. The Botna Valley State Bank, at Hastings, was robbed a few days ago by cracksmen, who blew the safe to pieces. The robbers secured S2,135 and escaped with their booty. That they did not get away with more was due to the fact that they were disturbed while picking out the money from the debris of the safe. Investigation showed that the safe door had been drilled in six different places and a heavy charge exploded in each place. The safe was literally blown to atoms, part of it being driven clear through the vault door. The money secured by the robbers consisted of 81,480 in currency and 5fG65 in silver done up in sacks. G. Brownell, who heard the report and went to investigate was knocked down, gagged and bound. Messrs. F. W. Powers and H. Egbert, the special committee appointed by overnor Shaw to go to Jacksonville, Via-., and inspect the condition of the Iowa volunteers at Camp Cuba Libre, have filed their report with the governor. The committee found the conditions surrounding the Fiftieth fairly good. Some criticisms were made, but on the whole no serious cause for complaint is found. The Forty-ninth regiment is found to be in pood shape, with conditions being constantly improved. There is nothing to cause alarm in the outlook for the future,,aecor(]ing to .the committee. Conditions which caused sickness at the outset have been abolished and the passing of uncertainty as to the future of the regiment, the committee says, has put the men in better shape to resist disease. The work of the officers in command is highly commended. Guthrie Center dispatch: Isaac Fitu, living about three miles from Yale, shot and killed his brother-in- law, James McClellen.

K.\OXVII,T,E, Tenn., Sept. 22.— The secretary of war inspected Camp Poland and reviewed the enlisted men encamped there. He made a speech to the commanding officers at Gen. Mc- Kec's headquarters, in which he fixed the blame for the sickness in the different camps throughout the eon n try on the commanding officers. He said: "I want to sny that had the war department been acquainted with the londitious said to have existed nt Chiehamnugn. the troops there would liave been moved long before they were. We received only good reports it Washington from the commanding officers, and it was supposed that the outside reports were exaggerated. J'he commanders of camps are responsible for the condition of their camps. and if the hospital and sanitary condi- ions are. bad. the commanding officer ntiht answer for it. The war department hns been and is ready to supply he demands of the troops for medi- ines and sustenance, and there is no eason why conditions other than the. i-st possible should exist.''

MUST GET OUT. to That KJTect Sent to Spaniards in Cuba. WASHINGTON, Sept. 24.—A very peremptory message of instructions has bt-en sent to the Cuban military commission and by them made the basis of a note to the Spanish commissioners. The authorities at AVashington will not make public the terms of the note, but its general tenor is tJiat the United States will not be satisfied with any further delay in- the evacuation of Cuba. Jt is to the effect'that the terms of the protocol called for immediate evacuation of Cuba and that Spanish sovereignty must be relinquished. The American commissioners have been informed that the evacuation of Cuba caunot be delayed. RUSSIA WINS ACSAIN. Secures Big Concessions From the Chinese Government. LONDON, Sept. 23.—A Hong Kong special purports to give details of a secret convention signed at Pekin March 27. It appears that Hsu-Ynig, K'Ouol, of the Chinese foreign office, thereby concluded an agreement at St. Petersburg by which China ceded Port Arthur and Ta-Lein-AVan, stipulating that only Russian and Chinese warships ma v enter or dock at Port Arthur. Russia, it also appears, gets executive use of the inner harbor of Ta-Lein-Wan, sole administration of the ceded territory, and a tract of land north of Ta-Leiii-Wan is desig-natedjis a buffer belt. Spaniards Must Hurry, AVASHINGTON, Sept. 26.—It is said the president upon the receipt, of information, from Havana, that the Spaniards claim thev cannot begin the evacuation or Cii'Ja tin tne llt-.st OT .November ana that it cannot be completed before the 28th of F,eJjr.ii(iL>y, wir.ed-. the commissioners that the evacuation must begin by October 15th and be completed by December 31. American Peace Commission. LIVKKPOOI,, Sept. 26.—The United States peace commissioners landed Saturday morning from the Campania.

Sept. 24.—The United States transport China has arrived from Manila, via Hong Kong, Xngas- aki and Kobe. She brought with her as passengers two representatives of the provisional government of tho Philippines, who are en route to AVash- ington to plead with President McKinley for the independence of the islands, after which they will probably proceed to Paris to appear before the peace commission. The Filipinos are Fillipe Agoncillo and .lose Lopez, the fonner being Aguinaldo's chief emissary. In an interview with an Associated Press correspondent he said the insurgents fully expected to be allowed to govern themselves, and even hinted that .some sort of agreement had been made with United States Consul AV'ildman regarding the outcome of the war made by the insurgents against Spain, but what the terms were Agoucillo would not state. He said he expected definite instructions from Aguinaldo by cable, but diplomatically refused to o'-ive the slightest hint of any he inig'ht have already received. .The Filipinos are shrewd and speak English fluently. Itrltlsli Naval Demonstration. WKI-HAI-WEI, Sept. 20.—The British battleship Centurion, the flagship of the British fleet in Chinese waters, sailed suddenly under sealed orders, accompanied by several other vessels of the squadron. It is supposed the destination is Ta-TCu, at the entrance of the river leading to Tien-Tsin, the port of Pekin, for the purpose of making a naval demonstration there. Esterha/ey Wrote the Bordereau. LONDON. Sept. 26.—In an interview Count Esterhazey confessed that he was the author of the famous Dreyfus bordereau, which he wrote "at the request of Col. Sandherr, now dead." Japan Borrows Fifty Millions. YOKOHAMA, Sept. 23.—It is understood that the Japanese government had decided to negotiate a loan of fifty million dollars. JIKEVITIKS. botrnger Km press I'-orce* Him to Gift Up the Rein* of Government. PEKIN, Sept. 23.—An imperial edict just issued announces that the emperor of China has resigned his power to the dowager empress., who has ordered the ministers to report to her in future their official reports. It is difficult to obtain reliable information at the palace in regard to the proceedings, but the recent reformatory edicts probably caused the change. AVhile the emperor was subservient und a mere figurehead, the dowager empress permitted him to remain in peace, but so soon as he attempted to act on his own initiative, his practical deposition was the result. His principal adviser, Kang Yumoi, the Cantonese reformer, fled in spite of the vigorous attempts made to arrest him, and it is said he is now on his way to Shanghai. The effect of the change must be great. In all probability Li Hung Chang will be reinstated in power and Russian influence will increase. The hopes of reform so ardently cherished by the intelligcntfactionsoftheChine.se are now impossible of fulfillment. The suddenness of the coup is said to be due to the desire of the dowager empress to prevent the mission of Marquis Ito from being successful. The Japanese statesman recently came to Pekin with the object of trying to bring about an alliance, offensive and defensive, between Japan and China. The new order of things will undoubtedly prejudice British interests in China.

DKS MOINKH, Sept. :.'ii.—In view of the fact that the president has appointed a commission to amend the laws concerning patents, trade-marks and commercial names and that the commissioners publicly will, for suggestions in the matter it is n. tit subject for public discussion. In the interests o.f inventors and through them to the publio would it not be well to repeal Sec. 4902, of the revised statutes, and also that part of Sec. 40:U that demands a fee of $10 for filing a caveat'? Between 1830 and -July 1, '98. the caveats filed (1.03,137) brought a revenue of $1,031.300.00 to help swell the surplus of about five millions that inventors have paid into the U. S. patent office. A caveat is presumed to afford protection for one year. If an application conflicting therewith is filed the ca- veator will be obliged to file a complete application within three months from official call therefor, provided such caveat is not overlooked or misunderstood. If there is no caveat filed the inventor has two years within which to file an application. Is such law in the interests of inventors in view of the fact 'that Sec. -1S80 allows two years time for filing an application from the time of the completion and public use of an invention, and the further fact that an application may now be filed complete in every respect, excepting the payment of the $10 filipg fee and record evidence \A'i!l;be protection for a year excepting that it will not be, subject to examination like a- caveat? A caveat does not guarantee a patent and if a, contest for priority arises the issue must be tried in the same manner Uiatall interference cases must be disposed of. Therefor unless it is the purpose to make inventors pay $10 for each caveat filed, to increase the millions of surplus they have already paid for the transaction of their business in the U. S. patent office, would it not be better to abolish the caveat system 'of'-pVovisional-'pr-ote.ctipn? THOMAS G. ORWIG, Solicitor of Patents. Otis Allen, the father of the assistant secretary of the navy, has just celebrated his ninetieth birthday in Lowell, Mass. ' A brave man will be brave even in the hour of defeat.
