DES MOINRS, Ang-ust 7.—The question of employing the labor of the inmates of the state Institutions ia one to which the state board of control has directed considerable attention. Recently .Tudge Kinne, of the board, and Supt. M. F. Qass, of the Soldiers' Orphans' Home at Davenport, went east to visit the .institutions of other states with a view to investigating the industries connected with these institutions, and to find industries which would be adapted to the conditions surroiind/ng the Iowa institutions. Their report lias just been submitted. The committee finds that nearly all state institutions have in connection with them certain industries. Nearly all make and repair the clothing they use, many making clot'iing for the other institutions in their own state, some making furniture for the institutions, and many making boots and shoes for their sister institutions. It is found that the contract plan, the piece plan and the state account plan are all followed in- the maintenance of the industries. The committee decides from its investigation that the contract plan is the best, the piece price plan the next, and the state account plan the least desirable, except for the making of supplies for the other institutions which the committee feels should be inaugurated.

The road when completed will be only a little over thirty miles long, but as an outlet for coal it will be a superb line and will have more connections than any line of a similar length in the state.

In order to "maintain the dignity of his position," Governor General Brooke receives an allowance of 87,500 in addition to his pay of $7,500 and allo-vance as major general, which makes his total annual income aggregate815,000.

Sensational Story Set Afloat by M. D« Illowltz. LONDON, August 5.— M. de Blowitz, the Paris correspondent of the. Times, gives an extraordinary explanation of M. Delcasse's present mission.

This is the explanation: "Emperor Nicholas is disappointed and tired of the throne. The absence of an heir excites his superstitious feelings and he connects himself with the old Russian legend according to which an heirlessczar is to be succeeded by a czar Michael, predestined to occupy Constantinople. The death of the czarowitz find the failure of the' conference at The Hague led him to decide to abdicate on the occasion of his coming visit to Darmstadt. On this becoming; known in Paris, M.

PETERSBURG, August 4.—Th* official Messenger publishes ft govern* ment communication reviewing length* ily the result of The Hague peace conference. After referring to ihfc sympathetic reception of the powers accorded the czar's "magnanimous ap> peal for peace," it proceeds: '•The results of the conference fully come up to the expectations of ths government. It has. been fduiid necessary for the conference to post* pone a. definite settlement of the complicated question of the suspension of armaments until elucidated by the different governments. Nevertheless, the lightening of the military burdens has already been admitted by an. unanimous resolution to be urgently desirable for all nations. On the other hand the labors of tfie conference will doubtless exercise influence in regulating customsof war and stopping cruelties. The.various states have agreed to use all resources in favor of the maintenance of peace and the abolition of war. Now the established fact of mediation, 'which hitherto has depended on good will of states interested can hence be offered by a third power on its own initiative." / The communication concludes; "Without impairing the sovereign rights of individual states, the results afford a fresh basis for international peace. The necessity for the solution of the czar's proposals will be admitted by all the powers and the march of events will indicate the means to be employed in securing the welfare of mankind and the full attainment of objects in view." FLORIDA HAS A CYCLONE. Three Towns are Completely Annihilated. RIVBK JU.VCTION, Fla., August 4.— The most disastrous cyclone that ever visited this section of Florida completely annihilated Carrabelle, Me- Intyre and Lanark Inn, south of here, Thursday.

Kentucky Law Is Inadequate. FRANKFORT, Ky., August 4.—Governor Bradley has issued a message to the press, public and legislature, on ,he Clay county situation. He says '.u part: It is said I might order everybody lisarmed in Clay county. The constitution guarantees to the citizen the right to bear arms openly, and such persons could not lawfully be disarmed unless engaged in some act manifestly a disposition to break ths peace. I know nothing practically concerning the position occupied by the peace officers of Clay county towards the Whites cr Halters; but I do know that in no instance has one of them called on me for aid, and naturally concluded that, they are entirely willing that matters 'should continue as they are and have been fou some time. The whole fault in Clay county is a vitiated public sentiment and a failure of the civil authorities to do their duty. The laws are insufficient to allo\v the governor to apply a remedy. Such feuds have been in progress, more or less, for years, and no governor of the state hasever been able to quell them. Fastest Hiuf Mile Truck Record YotiNesTOWN, O..
