This would seein to be a rather tisky power for some boards to handle. _ Whatever the legislature does or neglects to do, it should not be remiss in providing for the erection of suitable monuments to the valor of Iowa soldiers on the battle fields now being dedicated as military parks.

Just when everybody has taken pity Ottftarveyand Chubb and has quit asking questions about that resolution and that letter, the Butt Monitor begins to take a deep interest in the great thetoe. It has written an article on the subject of the county printing, and now it makes a special request that the BEPUULICAN print a sample paragraph of its tangled argument. We are afraid the BSFUBLICAN could not give it a circulation proportionate to its importance. Would it not be Well to get it printed itt supplement form and put in all the papers? But we want to ask the Monitor a couple of questions, and if it will answer them honestly we will print its whole article in condensed form-without condensing the thought. First.boW does it happen the conibined lists of the three papers of largest circulation in the county cannot give sufficient publicity to the proceedings of the board, when the law allows more than a thousand pieces of Kossuth county land to be sold at tax "Vfetott,* ate tfc« ~-r,- r - T,^^« fe Military service* fete.* willj.Wnen^t, In i, giVe Iowa th<*'finest wbfk.fftMrM* "P . _ it - _ 1 ...... „** £., .. 4ii_i i A~ 3 ft. ~ , ttiehtalafttobe fottftd west, These will be r — , same are completed, aftd ftioflg with them two groups of the much diseosserd liofis. . • • ..

It is occasion for thankfulness that several of the perpetrators of the dynamite, outrage in Muscatine in 1893, by which three residences were destroyed by saloon keepers of that city and their Kossuth county people have for a long time felt a deep interest has just been decided in the supreme court of the state. It is the somewhat famous A. O. U- W. case, in which the right .to use that name was involved. The history-leading up to this contest in the courts, began with the secession of Iowa members of the order from the national, jurisdiction on a question of taxatien.and.the organization of an independent grand lodge ; within the state. The national or supreme lodge still maintained a grand lodge in Iowa, and seems never to have discontinued the use of the name in .the state. S'o for a, number of-years two'grand lodges have been running side by side, under .the same, name in Iowa, and. recently there has been a lively competition between them. The seceding or "rebel" grand lodge a few years, since deter- Itf THE LOOAL HELD, The question Is being asked whether tho library tax proposition is going to bo submitted at the city election next taohth. As the REPUBLICAN sizes tiie matter up, that depends. There is no agresslve spirit being manifested oh either side at present. There apparently Is a disposition to Inquire of tho oracle of public sentiment. If In advance of any agitation of the measure it appears that a majority of tho voters of the city favor that plan of supporting the library, it will ho strange, if the friends of tho plan do not ask to have the question again submitted. On tho bthcr hand, If the sentiment is apparently' adverse it will not be submitted. But In any event no such fight as that of last year will occur. There is a feeling on all sides that it is not going to yay to stir up bad blood over the manner of raising a few hun'dred dollars. Tho feeling fororagainst the little tax is of no consequence as compared with tho feeling against tho gro- cepltation of- a heated contest over tho matter. Consequently nobody . will care to take responsibility for such- a- contest. Or if anybody rushes in where angels fear to tread he will be mUde to realize his sol-, itary condition. We think there can be ntf doubt but tho .library is at this time a very likely candi- amendtnents have been made and new statutes have been enacted. So numefduB had these become that & demand arose fon a revis* ion of our code-a simplifying, orderly compilation of our laws. Hence this C °Now S fnst a e'ad of confining themselves to a systematic, orderly arrangement or digest of our laws, this, commission proposes to be the law-makem it possible, themselves and foist upon the farmers and others of Iowa, a law that will knock out altogether some of the best mutual insurance associations of No greater legislative swindle was ever attempted in the state of Iowa. "Sec. 1. Any number of persons not exceeding two thousand may,',' etc. How quick this would l 'do up-' our State Tornado mutual. It now has over 30,000 members and is powerful for relief and cheapness only through its ubiquitous greatness. Annihilate it as this proposed law would do and we would soon—very soon—learn the difference between mutual Tornado and Stock Tornado, between four mills in 12 years 24 mills in twelve years. • The Town mutual association too, would have to go and Town Resident insurers would quickly learn the dit- ference between.$2.60 and $4.00 per annum for $1000 insured.

One of these houses , -was that of John Mahin, the prohibition editor of the Journal. The houses were occupied at the time and so murder was necessarily intended. The old rule is proved true in many cases that "murder will out," and it is especially gratifying to note its verification in this case. Apparently well grounded reports of a secret treaty offensive and defensive between Bussia and Turkey have been an occasion of great concern in England the past week. If such a treaty has been negotiated it will be no more disgraceful than the one existing between England and Turkey, on the strength of which as a shield from the consequences of his infamous administration the Sultan has gone on for these many months in a campaign of extermination against the defenceless Armenians. In fact, it is understood that Bussia undertakes to restore ordei in Kurdistan. If that is so there will be an end at once to the outrages which England has seemed to be responsible forf mined to drive the loyal grand lodge from the field,'by'a suit the courts to deprive it of the use of the name the two had used in common, and in the Dubuque district eourt the "rebels" were successful, securing an affirmative decision from Judge Husted. The case was taken to the supreme court, and now that tribunal has reversed Judge Husled's decision. The court in ruling on the question whether the seceding A. O. U. W. has an exclusive right to the name of the order, . date for public favor. There Is a pretty unanimous feeling that the institution, under the administration of Mr. Mcelroy, is wellconducted, ;aiid all understand how much it means to have a cultured gentleman in'such a position. There is no doubt that the library has made great progress within' the, pSist year. It has secured permanent quarters, the best'it ever had. It has accomplished the practical consolidation 'with it of the fine library .of theMon- day club, doubling the number of volumes and more .than doubling their valued It has secured donations in greater number and : value , .than , ; during,; all previous years, of its existence. made the first • prononnced success of a .public .reading room in the history of -the town. It has circulated 4,000 books, probably a larger number than the jombined results of previous years. The library is today the accepted public institution of the town, and it has established itself firmly in the confidence per annum and 6 per cent, per annum. With the four words "not. including two thousand" and the phrase preventing taking risks in cities and towns, stricken out, there would be no great harm from it. With them in, it will harm only the mutual interests in insurance. Why is.there a need for this limit? Simply and solely for .the, purpose of crippling these large, associa- fimisthftfc are nrovine so successful • Ito.has, tionsthat are proving and saving hundreds of . thousands of dollars to the members. The stock or old line companies have no arrangement tor ' membership. • Their ownership consists of stockholders of a limited number. - This-broposed law cannot cover them; it is not made to ^cover them 1 , it is only applicable to our mutual insurance organization. Some ot our county mutuals mjgbt have to succumb, but the sbaft is meant particularly for the destruction- of our .three state associations, the Tornado,' Town and Hail mutuals, and it remains to be seen if our farmers and others throughout the state who have,, been receiving the benefit 'of the cheapness', -th? • efflc- iencyand security of these associations, will sit idly toasting their shins around bard coal base-burners this winter and allow this swindle to "be consumated.

The Berlin, Wisconsin, Dally Journal of January 20 has the following notice of the death of Mrs. J. V. Swotting of that city, mother of E. V. Swotting, Esq., of Algona: • The community was surprised and shocked this morning to learn of the death of Mrs. J. V. Swetting, the wife of the well known pioneer citizen of Berlin. The sad event took place at an early hour this morning. It appears that she had been in poor health for sometime. She had suffered from a severe cold but had kept up and was about her daily household duties and was not considered seriously ill. On Sunday Dr. Wolcott was called in the afternoon and left remedies, ithe cold having seemingly settled upon bei lungs. At 5 o'clock this morning Mr. Swotting administered the medicine and then went 1 out of doors to do the chores at the barn. Eeturning about 6 o'clock he found his wife ,in a "stupor from which he could not' arouse • her. He called in Mrs. E. Doherty. the near• est neighbor, and - exaniination;abowed that life was 'extinct!'"Dr.'- Wolcott state&'that congestion qf the lungs was' the disease that caused her death. She was 69 years of age and- had resided in Berlin since 1850. She is survived by her husband and four children, all grown up: E. V. Swotting of Algona, Iowa, L. F. Swotting of Enid,.
