Dee MOISE*, Be*. St.—Leslie SJ. Shaw, as governor of Iowa, has been sued by Wilson L, Ogden of Woodtrary county in the district court. The suit is brought to have the court issue an order of mandamus to compel Governor Shaw to report the selection of the land known as Sand Bill Lake bed in Woodirary county to the eomtnisssoner of the general land ofBce at Washington as swamp and overflowed land; to take such steps as to him may seem expedient to secure to the state of Iowa the title to th» said land from the United States and to properly ex- ecnte and deliver to Woodbury county a state &wnmp land patent therefor. On December 5 Gov. Shntv declined to issue the patent for the land a«lted for by Woodbury county, also declining to make the request to the authorities at Washington.

The bank has received a draft for S10.000 from the American Surety Company of New York, in payment in full of the bond of Kendrick. Kendrick's defalcation is not fully known, but it is said to be- in the neighborhood of SI,800. Chairman Larrabee and T. G. Kinne, of the state board of control, a few days ago visited and examined the accounts of the state university and their report is made public. The board confines its report to criticism of- the method of keeping the financial accounts of the institution, which, in the opinion of the bo'ard, arc not a sufficient check upon the officers handling the funds. The demonstrator of anatomy is allowed 83,030 a year for procuring dissecting material, and there is no showing that tho money is expended. The hoard proposes to eend bodies from state institutions for this purpose where it can lawfully be done. It is charged that bills are sometimes paid before they are properly audited, and that contractors have received money for buildings without the proper showing from the architect. Washington dispatch: The report sent out as to the illness of Secretary Wilson was simply born of the imagination of an irresponsible reporter on an evening paper. In speaking of the Blatter Mr. Wilson said: "There is not a word of truth in the statement. I am as strong as a bull calf. I do a hard day's work every day, although I do sometimes get tired after being at it for a long time. I have not seen the president about it or talked with anyone on the subject, nor have I any intention of ('oing so. I have worked, every day this summer and after getting out my report I did say to some of the boys that I intended to go a little slower. The clerks in my department had vacations. I had none and 1 felt I was entitled to a little rest. I think they might have telephoned me and asked me before pub- libfjingsuch a statement." 8 Des Moines dispatch: Secretary Kennedy, of the state board of health, re-- c«ived from Dr. R.

LOSDWS, Dec. 21.— A Durban, Natal, special sajK It is rumored that Btiller called for volunteers to recover the abandoned guns at Tugela river and a party issued from the camp after midnight and brought in the guns, which were uninjured. Advices to tee Associated Press from Pretoria say an ofijcial Boer dispatch reports two guns, thirteen wagons and a quantity of ammunition captured, besides 2OS prisoners. Farther accounts from tbe Tugela river battle emphasize the ignorance of the British intelligence department tn regard to the disposition of the Boer forces. The British were not aware that the Boers were entrenched along- a series of lovr lying hills, immediately north of Colenso bridge, uctll a staggering fire compelled them to retreat when tbe attack seemed abont- to succeed. The Boers were also in greater strength than was anticipated. It becomes clearer, also, that the British gnns were lost in attempting to get within effective range of the Boer artillery, showing that the latter outranged the British ordnance, which, in spite of numerical superiority, was wholly inadequate to reply to the long ranjre Boer guns. The "British war office come 1 - in for a scathing denunciation from the Times for not providing effective artillery. ORDERED OUT. NOTES FROM THE CAPITAL FKOGRHSS IX CCBA* •Jencral Brooke Tell* a Wonder/al Storjr of Devflopraent. WASHINGTON, l;ee. 21.—Gen. Brooke, in turning over the civil government of Cuba to General Wo^d, issued the following proclamation: 15y order of the president. I hereby transfer to m}' successor. Major General Leonard Wood. United Slates volunteers, the duties aud responsibilities of the ollice of military governor, bespeaking for him that support and L-oniidcnce you have come to accord me. To those who have been a^sor:;a;ed with me iu the performance of the difficult tn.sk of reorganizing and placing in operat'on the civil government of the island I hereby tender this expression of my appreciation of and thanks for their loyal and patriotic support and assif-.tance. A year ago I found the country most thoroughly devastated, its resources and commerce destroyed, and its rural population gathered in its towns without shelter and dying from starvation and exposure. The government of the United States immediately supplied food and work. In a short time this terrible condition passed away, and now the country is rapidly pressing on to a prosperity hitherto unknown in itshistory. Look about and see how true this is. The various steps which led up to the present conditions are well known to yon and need not be mentioned here. The change is truly marvelous. Without a semblance of civil government, you have now a complete organ- izat : on. Your municipal and provincial governments are all in the hands of your own citizens, the military control being purely advisory and supervisory. Many of your laws have been modified and changed to suit the times in which you live, as well as in the interestof good government. Your courts have been organized and are in operation. Peace reigns, law and order rules, and by your own industry and o, careful observance of these conditions the full restoration of your social affairs and prosperity is assured. Feeling that your future is in your own hands, to make or to mar, and trusting that wise counsels may prevail among you, I say to you farewell. MOODV IS DEAD.

"A stron«r forte of volunteers, selected from the yeomanry regiments, will be formed for service in South Africa. "Arraneetucnts are being made and rrill shortly be announced for the employment i'n South Africa of a strong contingent of carefully selected volunteers. "The patriotic offers which are beine received from the colonies will, so far as possible, be accepted, preference be given to offers of mounted contingents." _' SILENCE CACHES ALARM. Famous Evangelist Paused Away at Ilia Home In Massachusetts. EAST NORTHFIKLD, Mass., Dec. 24 — Dwight L. Moody, the famous evangelist,' died Friday at >doon. KAXSAB CITV, Dee. 24. — Dwight L. Moody, the evangelist, was stricken with heart trouble in this city November 1C, while holding revival meetings, and was compelled to give up the work here and the day following started for his home in care of a physician. Moody probably addressed the largest crowds during his stay here he ever faced. Meetings began Sunday, November 13, thousands filling the hall on the afternoon arid evening of each day. The strain upon Moody was great. He preached his last sermon on the night of November 15, fully fifteen thousand people listening to his earnest appeal that many stamped as one of the evangelists greatest efforts. He was stricken at the hotel, but laughingly declared he was all right and would be able to preach that afternoon. He grew worse gradually, however, and it was deemed best to start him home the next day, although his physician stated that his condition was not necessarily serious. An I'lirocordcil Sortie. LONDON, 'Pec. 24, — A war office dispatch from Pietermaritzburg gives a list of the casualties for Monday, December 18, as 7 killed and 14 wounded, all non-commissioned officers and men, The names of the regiments concerned indicate an hitherto unrecorded sortie from Ladysmith on that date. War's Effect on , Jamaica, Dee. 83.— -Owing to the growing seriousness . of the South African war prospects, and particularly the prob^bje withdrawal of fcfie imperial garrisons from the colonies, coincident with unprecedented pf French trpops to the West . a prpposal is afloat to augment British West' India, mil^in forces tp thf fullest ypssJWe strength if conscription. to men, Absence of Beal War »\r» From the Front. LOSDOX, Dec. 22.—The Daily Mail says: "We understand that news has arrived from General White to the effect that Ladysmith is well supplied with food and'ammunition and can hold out much longer than has been estimated. The troops are described as in good spirits and anxious to fight." LOXDOX. Dec. 22.—There is still no definite news regarding the military operations in South Africa. Probably this is because the only cable that is now working is choked with official dispatches. General Buller's casualty list at Colenso just published shows that 146 were killed and 740 wounded. Two hundred and twenty-seven are described as missing, and of these about forty are known to be prisoners in the hands of the IJocrs. This makes the total larger than General Buller's original estimate. "WELCOME TO WOOD. Greeting Extended New Military Governor of Cnba. HAVANA, Dec. 1.—General Leonard Wood, the new governor general arrived yesterday and received the salutes of the major general from Cabanas, and the governor general from Punta, fired with petards by Cubans. Every launch in the harbor, barges and rowboats were hired and decorated with bunting. General Wood boarded a launch supplied by the entertainment committee, while a salute of twenty- one rockets, each having American or Cuban flags attached, was fired. Much enthusiasm was manifested on every side. A large crowd received General Wood at Machina wharf, and upon landing there he was greeted wilh hearty cheers. He was then driven to the Hotel Ingalaterra and later called at the palace and was received by General Brooke. FORTY CHILDREN DUOWNED. C Ice Collapsed While School Boys and Girls Were Skating. BKUSSKI.S, Dec. 24.—Up wards of forty school children were drowned in an accident -at Freelingham, near the French frontier. The chitdren of the district had been given a holiday, with permission to play on the frozen river Lys. When the merriment was at full height the ice broke suddenly and the children disnpp'eared. ' A few were rescued half dead, but the majority were drowned. Thirty-six bodies have been recovered, but others are still missing. AVlll Make a Slnml nt Stormberg. LONDON', Dec. 11. — The Daily News has the following dispatch from Cape Town: '•The Boers intend to make a big stand at Stormberg and are massing u great force at the abandoned British camp. One commando of 2,000 consists chiefly of rebel Dutch." The Madrid correspondent of the Standard says: '•The Boer governments have recently intimated to their agents in Europe their readiness to be moderate in regard to peace conditions. The chief anxiety of the burghers is as to the question of receiving supplies by way of Lorenzo Marquez." Iloers Reinforced. STETCKSTROOM, Cape Colony Dec. 24. • — The Boers have been largely reinforced since General Gatacre's reverse at ^tormberg. The country north of that point is in arms, and the farms of the loyalists are being taken by the Boers, who reap the crops. Boer accounts of successful engagements are printed for distribution throughout the disaffected districts. jL.awton'8 Reuiuliis.

Dec. 25.—M»djsotl«OTin- insane asylum and poor boose, according to the report by Jndge Kinne, is very similar to other institntions of the kind which have been visited by the board of wratroL Judge Kinne finds it about as well calcnlatedfor the care of insane persofcs as other institn- tions operated by counties, vrtii'-h means, in the view of the board, that it is not calculated at all for such purposes. The board has been considering whether to publish its reports on the private asylums of the state. There are three of these, and they have been visited. Some of the newspapers •where they are located have asked for copies of the report, but the board has not yet indicated whether it tvill give them out. According to a Washington dispatch, there are twenty-three candidates for the judgeship 'made vacant by the death of Juclg-c .lobn S. Woolson. Congressman Hull has three candidates in his district, there are five in the First district, and so all along the line. The school board of West Des Moines has deckled to introduce German into the courses of study in the grades. Judge Bishop, in the district court of Polk county, has handed down a decision in the case of the state vs. CJ. T. Schlenker, the milkman who was tried and found gilty of selling' adulterated milk. The verdict is reversed and the defendant discharged from all further liability. The opinion is a lengthy one and deals exhaustively Tvith the cnse. In the opinion of the court tho legislature erred when it went farther in the premises than it had power to. In this case no element of fraud appears, and therf was nothing incident to the commodity dealt in which rendered it injurious to the public health. The opinion holds that the proposition of the state is to protect the people who desire to buy pure milk from having palmed off upon them milk which has been diluted or adulterated. There was no fraud intended on the part of the defendant, and inasmuch as the ingredient used was harmless to those who used the milk, he was not guilty of any criminal act. Judge Prouty, of the district court, has finally disposed of tho Highland Park college assessment suit by reducing the assessment made against the properly from 8120.000 to 571,000. The personal assessment against the apparatus and school equipment was reduced from 818,000 to 80.000. The college made the point that it could not pioperly be taxed, but the judge decided that it could. An appeal will be taken. The trial of the famous Bonaparte dam case is now on at Uloomfteld. Attorney General Milton Reralej* is handling the case for the commonwealth and Judge J. C. Mitchell, of Ottumwa, represents Meek Brothers, of Bonaparte, who own the dam. Mr. Rem'ey is confident he will win the suit, but the other side is equally satisfied that its position is impregnable. Two generations ago the Meeks were given by the state a grant of a state dam in the Des Moines river at Bonaparte. The state expressly conveyed all its rights to the dam. The Meeks developed it and used it to provide power for their big woolen mills there. In latter years the dam has been little used for power and has become, a nuisance because it prevents the passage of fish. The Meeks contend that they are not- compelled to put in a fish way because the fishway law was passed many years after they acquired their rights from the state. There has been a strong demand from sportsmen that the dam be removed in order to allow fish to pass to t'.ie upper waters of the river. The Meeks are holding out to compel the state to pay them a high price for the dam. The state maintains it h.is the power to condemn and remove the diim as a nuisance. The case will be concluded, it is hoped, before the adjournment of the legislature, an:l if a rlear case is made against the state an effort will be made to pass an appropriation to buy the dam. The upper Des Moines and tributaries are entirely cut off by this clam from drawing fish from the Mississippi river, and tho result is that the stream has fewer fish than any other in the state, while it is said to be the best adapted river in Iowa for breeding fish. Noah Brockway Bacon, of Des Moines. was 100 years of age on the 19th. He. is vigorous in both mind and body. It has been discovered that the state board of control is required by the law to make un itemized report of the expenditures of the institutions, giving the cost of supplies, etc.. which will be published by the executive council, together with detailed expenditures of other departments of the state government, immediately after January of each year. The board will proceed to the work early after January. The report thus made will be the hulk of the book required by section 1G3, which the executive council decided to follow in letter and spirit at a recent meeting. The report of the committee on Soldiers' home was filed with Adjutant Black of the Iowa department, G. A. It, last week, but will not bo made public until the two members of the committee who were unable to visit the home recently with the body of the committee have visited it. The report is eaid to endorse the management of the home both by the efficient commandant and by the state board of control. It }s only by giving with the heart that any man can know what it is to be rich. Christians Barred From Tbtliot. SKATTLE, Wash., Dee. 24.—\V, W. Simpson and A. W. Lagerquist, of the Christian and.
