DES MOINES, April 6.—The doings of the upper house have entirely overshadowed those of the lower body this week; and gossip and newspaper paragraphs are all about the wonderful ora- ;ory which after being put up for so many long weeks of legislation at last jurat forth and cast about the heads of the dignified senators a radiance which is much akin to glory. The house concurrent resolution to finish the code at this session came up on Tuesday, and a substitute was proposed to fix the time of adjournment to April 9th and provide for an extra session next winter. A whole forenoon session was devoted to discussion of the pros and cons of adjournment and the code. There were diverse sentiments and the debate was at times heated and personal. There were those who thought the assembly might as well adjourn now and give the code up as a bad job; others thought that it should be finished now and |no move made to go home until it was done; still others thought that adjournment until next January was the wisest plan. Every member thought every other member was reaching out after the additional salary that might be acquired, and every member was quite sure that he himself had no mercenary motive in view but only the most profound desire to legislate for the best interests of the state. It was really remarkable to note the amount of energy expended upon the subject in question, and when the noon hour arrived, the matter was made a special order for the following Friday. Manufacturing having exhausted a great share of oratory and mental power by Friday the question was submitted without discussion and the time of adjournment fixed for Saturday, April resolution manufacturing could be carried on. The discussion of the measure was by far the most interesting and able parliamentary debate of the session. It must be admitted that the opponents of the bill were successful iii dragging the discussion away from the real matter under consideration. They discussed rather the question of liquor traffic in general instead of the real issue of legalizing the manufacture of an article whose sale is already in the state. They particularly urged that the principle and traditions of the republican party place it in a position which demands that it defeat any proposition looking to an increase of the rights and powers of: the liquor interest; and on this ground demanded the defeat of the bill. The advocates of the measure on the other hand declared that the republican party had specifically disavow- -A Distinction and a Difference, Our Shire Waists are distinctly different from Shirt Waists as 7911 commonly meet them— a trifle finer, a little neater, a slight difference in the form, sleeves bang a «t* tie better, collar fits a little better.

WE ABU IN MADE GOODS FOB UJTO Jas, Taylor, $-•- ed responsibility for this legislation by relegating the whole question to the legislative and senatorial districts of the state for their determination. The friends ol ! the bill vehemently insisted that the republican party and its traditions and policies were not to be lugged into the discussion. They declared the question was not one of the moral right or wrong, nor one of party policies; it was simply a question, they said, of common sense. Common sense, they insisted should allow the manufacture of liquors so long as their sale is legalized in the state. The senate floor and galleries were crowded at every one of the four sessions devoted fo the debate, the number of ladies present being a noteworthy feature. The ladies were almost without exception in sympathy with the opponents of the bill, and Lieutenant Governor Parrott almost wore out a nice new mahogany gavel trying to suppress the enthusiasm that would break out whenever one of the speakers against the bill would make a good point. The long and short of the matter is that the senate is against manufacture. The bill received 22 votes, to 27 against it; Healy was the only absentee, and he sent word, with the request that it be made part of the record, that had he beenvpresent ,he would have voted milling them to the home. The commissioner shall place the inmates' money in the bank at the best rate of interest obtainable. Considerable strife was stirred up by the passage of the bill aimed at the several state institutions and the purchasing of their supplies. The bill provided that the executive council should advertise for and receive sealed bids for these supplies, and preference should be given manufacturers and jobbers within the state. The bill passed the senate by a large majority, it hit the trustees of the institution too hard and somebody worked up a reconsideration. It was changed to leave the power of purchasing with the trustees, but leaves the provision that they give preference to Iowa bidders. One of the sensational charges was that Cheshire, the Polk county senator, who was a member of the committee that drafted the original bill, used his influence for Des Moines interests, in giving the executive council power to purchase the supplies.

The house concurred in the senate resolution, but is now pondering whether or not to reconsider the vote by which it concurred. There is hardly any doubt that adjournment sine die' will be made this week. The calling of an extra session is left to the discretion of the governor. The course of events has placed upon the senate the responsibility for killing the manufacturing bill for this session. The senate indeed has been compelled to assume most of the responsibility for the omissions of the session; but its members include some men of distinct opinions, who are willing to take these responsibilities. The house some time ago voted down a proposition to make manufacturing a special order. There was an impression that a reconsideration would have changed the result; but as it had been made a special order in the senate it was decided to wait till that body had considered it. The special order was reached on Wednesday in the senate, and the forenoon and afternoon sessions of that day and the succeeding day were devoted to the debate. That the debate was a waste of time can best be indicated by an allusion to the fact that the defeat of the measure was forcast- ed in this correspondence a week before, and it was said that the vote would probably be 27 against the bill which is exactly the number of votes that were recorded in the negative on the roll call, Senator Ellis, of Clinton, republican, led the fight for the bill. He made a strong speech in opening the debate, and was supported in advocacy of the measure by Waterman, Cheshire,JjOth- rop, Overall, Pusey and Bonson. Those who spoke against the measure were Berry, Druet, Eaton, Harriman, Hotcbkiss, Junkin; the democrats voted for the bill, after offering the democratic caucus bill as a substitute. This bill provided for legalising the manufacture of liquor without requiring any consent, petition, or exacting a mulct tax, The committee bill on the other hand required that a 65 per cent petition of the voters of any town of over five thousand people must pe and then the city council must the resolution before manufacturing could be legalized. I a order to legal' ize manufacture in towns of less than five thousand it was made necessary to secure 9, consent peti.tteft signed by 65 pey cent of all the voters in the county, j&n4|h§n another «5 per c $nt petition town_ agttirist-it.

Absent—Healy. There was something of a sensation in the house on Friday during the consideration of Early ; s bill to require fire insurance companies from outside the state to comply with Iowa laws before they could write business in Iowa. Mr. Klemme offered an amendment to except purely mutual companies from the provisions of the bill. Mr. Early promptly declared that paid lobbyists of foreiga companies had been resorting to the most despicable tricks for some time to defeat this bill. He said they had attempted in various ways to intimidate members to compel them to vote against it. Then Mr. Tibbets arose and said that while Mr. Klemme was offering his amendment to except mutual companies, he (Mr. Tibbets) had received a note from a lobbyist representing the mutual company of which Klemme was a member. In this note be said he was threatened with dire consequences if he voted for the bill; other members joined in the roast of the insurance lobby and the proceedings reached a very high temperature for awhile. Notwithstanding the sensational proceedings however, the Early bill was finally defeated. The military committee's substitute for the Carney bill, relating to the pensions of the inmates of the soldier's home, was a. question which consumed a good share of the senate's time this week. It provided that the commissioners shall pay to its inmates $6 of their monthly pensions and use the remainder for the use of depending relatives, if there be any, otherwise they shall hold the remainder for the benefit of the pensioner and pay it over to him on his discharge from the home. Carney favored this bill as it stood and very earnestly and eloquently defended tbe rights of the old soldiers, and thought It a strange and unjust plan to take the pension woney of any individual to aid in maintaining a government institution. Carney, who is from Marshall county, was accused of being influenced in bis sentiments by political feeling and campaign agreements. The bjjj finally passed after being amended to have preference given I ji9ftoJdie|i4f8wij»t nc> P*'??* 0 ^ in acll » An elegant Line of Just the kinds you want, at_ : I. Z. Grove A Son's.
