MUTUAL INSURANCE. Some portions of the report of code commission the Iowa republicans should not lay .the flattering unction to their, souls, $iat MclCinley has no Show as a president: ial candidate. Little credence should be eiven the stories purporting to come from Ohio to the effect that there is a hopeless split between the McKiflley and Foraker factions and that the f Of nv et'fl friends are deserting him in large numbers. Nothing is to be gained, The anti-cigarette bill passed the senate on Saturday by the overwhelming vote of 31 to 11, most of the negative voters coming from the democrats. It is expected fiat its majority in the house will also be large. It is a good bill. Dr. Geo. F. Magoun, the founder of Iowa College, died at his home in Grinnell last week, after a long illness. Dr. Magoun was not only a distinguished scholar, writer aud educator, but he was* an influential public leader and one of Iowa's best men. look very queer. It looks very queer that these commissioners should, for instance, conclude that mutual insurance companies attdbuild- ing and loan'associations should be driven out of business. To What public demand is this action of the commissioners in legislating these institutions out of business a response? The large business which these institutions Lave done is evidence of a demand for them. What are the evils or abuses calling tor their suppression? The answer to these questions' may be very easy at Des Moines, but in Kossuth county there are numbers of people who cannot explain this unexplained attack xvpon what up here are deemed legitimate and useful institu- either by attacks upon the pro tection apostle or circulating disparaging reports relative to his character, his career or his candidacy. Allison himself would not endorse such a course. It would displease him greatly, in fact, to learn that his over-zealous supporters were striving to advance his interests by personally assai ing any of the other candidates. That's not Allison's way of conducting a campaign. Iowa is ready and anxious to promote bis canvass in every legitimate and effective way possible, but we don t want Senator Funk ; s fish bill, which was the first bill to pass the senate, went swimmingly through the house last Friday. It prohibits the erection ot any kind of shelter or devise for keeping warm on the ice while fishing and of course is intended to discourage fishing through ice as a business. It is a good law. There are not enough fish in any Iowa lake to warrant their being caught on any large scale. to slop over and really injure his tions. The REPUBLICAN last November gave a list of about seventy farmers in Kossuth who had been paid losses by a single mutual company during the season. We do not know how many farmers in the county were insured in this company. There were probably several hundred, and there may have been a thousand. If anybody thus insured had any complaint to make against the company it was not made public. The losses were adjusted promptly, without any friction or dissatisfaction, and the rate of insurance was not above five chances by unwarranted and unpoliti- cal arraignment of McKmlev or any other candidate. As is truly said in another article on this page to-day, McKinley has many devoted triends^in Iowa. They will resent any attempt to abuse or belittle him, and if they are to be held in line for Allison it must be done by different tactics than by knifing the Ohio candidate. Wetru^that Senator Allison will be spared tae humiliating necessity of pleading to, be spared from his ' 'fool friends.'^ Leading republican papers, that are not dominated by prejudice, and even the democratic press, now concede that the stories of a split in the Buckeye slate are mere political fabrications.

The visiting cotnttitees had returned, bringing generally fav* orable reports and ready to recommend all just appropriations Two features of these reports attract especial attention. The sentiment of the committee Which visited the Fort Madison pentitentiary favors abandon* ment of the old buildings and selection of a new and more accessible site. The admitted opinion of the Anamosa committee is that there may be some foundation for the charge that the warden has used the state's stone for private use. Nothing may come of these reports, however. Investigation of the charges made against the Independence insane hospital for using Illinois in preference to Iowa coal shows' that there are two sides to tbe question, and the report of itlieffgularmdtithty tittfr ttotmcil Chief 6f th§ fife department Stibmlited following very interesting ftpOrf 5 To the Honotable Mstfot and ftffifilfr mefl Of the City Council: ^^^ Pursuant to section ll» ordinance nttmber 65, the following report is sub* ffiittedi The proprety now in service* able condition is as follows; one hose cart, one ladder truck equipped with two extension ladders, otte l8-f oot sm* gle ladder, two short roof ladders, two 16-fcot pike poles, one pulMpwn rope< two fire axes, one pick, six rubber buck' ets, 600 feet 3-inch hose, with pipes for same, ohe leak stop, one lantern, two patent respirators, six rubber coats, siX pairs of rubber boots, 20 department caps. In addition to the above there are 200 feet of 2-iuch hose, which however cannot be practically used.

Also a supply carriage to be used for conveying extra hose, rubber coats, lanterns, chemical extinguishers, axes and numerous other tools. Such a carriage is an actual necessity, as the above named articles are needed from the first at any fire, and unless some provision is made for them they are liable to be in the hose house When most needed.

Correspondence Times-Republican: Senator Healy, of Fort Dodge, has aimed a blow at oppression that ought to win. Under the present law a man can make a contract for the purchase of real estate, make his payments regularly and make large improvements, and if he fails for one day on the last payment, or on any payment, he forfeits all he has put into it, if the contract so provides. He has no redress, no day of grace, no chance to redeem. It has worked a terribly cruel hardship on many,an unfortunate person. Senator Healy's bill provides for giving The present condition of the state's treasury justifies the suppression of all such needless expense. It is necessary that this year's appropriations be for judicious expenditures. The constant flow of bills, petitions, resolutions and memorials in the short session of Wednesday was accompanied by a listless spirit of affairs. The members of the house seemed to awaken and take a little more/interest when Morrison of Keokuk introduced a bill for the suppression of intemperance and lying. The house concurred in the Armen- notiue to the purchaser that the holder ian resolutions of the senate, without of the contract intends to take_ advan- commen t, although the Hepburn epi- glV1DR sode in the national house was a. not- I iceable topic of conversation among days to redeem. son. and by it fires could be located in different wards, i . • I would suggest that *a street lamp be placed opposite the stair entrance to the city hall. This would light up the room below when the door is thrown open, and the carts and trucks could be more quickly run out. . The company now have a full membership of twenty who are as follows: J.O. Anderson, A. H. Alleo, Geo. Campbell, A. L. Calkins, A.F. Dailey, F. E. Foster, Frank Burt, L. Horan, B. C. Lewis, H. Norton, Eoe Nebergall, Will Richardson, E. Hackman, W.E. Hart, G.E. Hamilton, Guy Grove, Chas. Johnson, E. E. Wilbur, Frank Wilson, II. Williams. The following officers were elected for 1896: Chief G. E. Hamilton, 1st Foreman W. E. Hart, 2nd Foreman Geo.

It is estimated in advance that something like $200,000,000 would be required. That would be a trifling sum compared with the money invested in railroads, which some inconsiderate people want to have owned and run by the government. Senator Quay's plan is urged as a solution of the problem of cheap transportation. Senator Gurley, of Decatur county, has introduced a bill providing that the township trustees of any township may authorize persons or clubs interested in bicycles to prepare a track on one side of public highways for the ex. elusive use of bicyclists. It limits the width to six feet, makes the parties interested bear the whole expense, and prohibits any use of the way other than as a bicycle track. It seems to tie a very reasonable and sensible bill, and no doubt if it passes numerous clubs will avail themselves of its provisions, before the public statesmanship with a well paid lobby |ii ne . might not look like it in the unsophisticated rural press best society toe give'a springy knee action like that ishing combinations between THE ALGONA STYLE.
