DBS Moi8B«, August 1—The question of employing the labor ol the Inmates of the state institutions is one to which the state board of control has directed considerable attention. Recently Judge Kinne, of the board, and Snpt. M. F. Gass, 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 surrounding the Iowa Institutions. Their report tias 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.

WASHINGTON, August 5.—American army officers nt Havana are living in luxury at the expense of the Cuban people, some of them tfrawing double pay, which is a. clear violation of law, being expressly forbidden. In order to "maintain the dignity of his position," Governor General Brooke receives an allowance of &7,500 in addition to his pay of $7,500 and allo-vance as major general, which makes his total annual income aggregate815,000. Brigadier General Ludlow, the military governor of the city of Havana, is allowed $5,000 for the same purpose, besides his pay of 85,500 and allowances. thus making his total yearly income 811,000. Colonel Bliss, the collector of the port of Havana, is allowed 83.000 of the Cuban funds in addition to his salary of $3,500 and allowances, giving him a total inj come of about 157,000, and Major Davis, the sanitary officer at Havana, is allowed &9,500 besides his regular pay of 82,500 together with allowances, which means a yearly income of $5,000. Aside from this extra compensation, which is not avtthori/.ed by law, it is charged that General Brooke has been extravagant with Cuban funds, having spent 810,000 in repairing the palace he occupies, formerly that of the Spanish military governor. It is also said he has expended $14,000 for the purchase of harness. General Corbin says these expenditures were authorized by General Alger. General Brooke and the other favored officers represented to the secretary that they could not maintain the dignity of their office witli their regular pay. General Alger then authorized the expenditure of $18,000 of the money of the Cuban people, for which there was no authority. In fact, it is expressly forbidden. THE CZAR MAY ABDICATE.

This is the explanation: "Emperor Nicholas is disappointed and tired of the throne. The absence of anheirexciteshis 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 and 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.

PETKRSBUBO, August 4.—Tha official Messenger publishes a govern* ment communication reviewing length* ily the result of The Hague peace conference. After referring to tha sympathetic reception of the powers accorded the czar's "magnanimous appeal for peace," it proceeds: '•The results of the conference fully come up to the expectations of the" government. It has. been fduud necessary for the conference to post* pone a definite settlement of the complicated question of the suspension of armaments until ehicidated by the different governments. Nevertheless^ the lightening of the military burdens has already been admitted by an unanimous resolution to be urgently desirable for n.ll nations. On the other hand the labors of the 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 ba.sis 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."

FKANKFOIIT, Ky., August 4.—Qovi ernor Bradley has issued a message to ;he press, public and legislature, on .he Clay county situation. lie says in part: It is said I might order everybody disarmed in Clay county. The constitution guarantees to the citizen the right to bear arms openly, and such pei-son.s could not. lawfully be disarmed unless engaged in some act manifestly a disposition to break the peace. I know nothing practically concerning the position -occupied by the peace officers of Clay county towards the Whites cr Makers; but I do know that in no instance has one ot them called on me for aid, and uati urally concluded that they are entirely willing that matters should continue as they are and have been fop some time. The whole fault in Clay county is a vitiated public sentiment and a failure of the civil authorities .todo their duty. The laws are insufficient to allow the governor to apply a remedy. Such feuds have been in progress, more or less, for yeurs, and no governor of the state has ever been able to quell them. Fastest Ilmf Mile Truck Record YOUNB.STOWN, O..
