Mr. Lochren stated to the committee that he did not believe a smaller sum could be safely relied upon to meet the requirements of the service for the coming year. He said the expenditures for the fiscal year. ending June 30, 189-1, had approximated $140,000,000, and he expressed the opinion that with no additional legislation the figures would be about the same for the next two -years. After that he thought there would be a gradual decline. To repress drunkenness the Governor of St. Petersburg has just ordered that the names and addresses of all persons found intoxicated in the streets, regardless of rank or sex, shall be -posted in certain public places in the city and also printed in the Official Gazette.

The men of steel and money are paving the way for the protection the republicans have been promising them. Eports from St. Petersburg via London say that all told the expenses attending the czar's sickness and funeral amounted to 10,000,000 rubles, or $7,-500,000. According to these figures it costs almost as much to provide for an emperor's interment as for a congressional funeral and the excursion trip connected with it, in this country. A Texas populist refuses to take an office to which he was elected. He was a successful candidate for constable and frankly confesses that he is not competent for the place as he can neither read nor write.

In honor of the Czar's wedding 40,000 of St. Petersburg's poor people dined at the Czar's expense. All of the schools were ordered closed for three days to give the children a holiday and enable them to celebrate the imperial marriage. Great is royalty! At his own request the general assembly of the knights of labor, at its annual session last week, reduced the salary of Grand Master Workman Sovereign from $3,500 to 2,500 a year which sum is considerable more than his services are worth. IOWA STATE CENSUS Preparations Already Being Made for Compiling the Statistics, v Des Moines Leader: The secretary of state has just commenced his preparations for taking the regular state census. Every square foot of Iowa soil will be searched for men, women and children. It makes n« difference whether they are Christian or heathen saint or scoundrel, rich or poor, just so they are men, and the more the merrier. The last state census was taken in 1885, and according to the laws of the state every ten years the country has to be gone over again. The United States census is taken every ten years also, but this happened last in the year 1890, and so Iowa is practically, every five years. On the second Monday of the coming January assessors will start on their zig-zag journeys from every county seat of the state and will continue working the county until the 1st of June by which time they are supposed to have corraled everybody. These men are allowed until the 1st of September to get in their originals. The census enumerators secure their lists and arrange them according to blanks which are now being arranged over in the capitol. These men hand their sheets of legal cap paper covered with names, description, etc., in to the county auditors of the various counties who in turn see that they arc placed in the hands of the secretary of state. Then Mr. Me Farland will file abstracts from them and an interesting book is complied, printed and labled "Iowa Census Report." The above is only a general review of the work, but the great burden of the labor rests in the fact of its minuteness, which is wonderful and extremely laborious. This coming year more labor will be required since so many new and public enterprises and manufacturing undertakings have been entered upon in our state .during the last ten years. Indeed the work will almost double that of 1885. Every man will have have recorded his name, profession, where he was born,' whether native or foreign, his wife and children, whether he or they can read or write, whether an inmate of any asylum.and residence. In fact they want to know a little of anything and everything do these census enumerators. Besides an individual list there is another list prepared from the above tables which shows the various em- ployes and employers, tlieir business, its successes or failures, its goods, quality and quantity. Agriculture mining, .religious and educational statistics are all made. Grain, vegetable fruits horses, cattle and poultry all figure in these statistics with comparison by former results. The name and individual output, hands employed and the amount of work accomplished per hand an hour will go in the mining tables. The manufacturing outlays will perhaps have the largest per cent increase oyer former years, for Iowa has come well to the front in this great corner of civilization, and just what will be the result of this investigation cannot as yet be determined, suffice will it be to say that the statistics will be a surprise. , All the colleges and schools will be able to show their benefits more forcibly then as they are generally understood. The entire work will in all probability consume the entire year of 1895, and Iowa this time next year will be seen to have a great deal more wholesome and prosperous appearance and rank among the other states than ever before. rived here Sunday morning. Instead of going to Daly, who had given him his information he went arid informed the sheriff what he was here for. Sheriff Samson and Mr. Ktrkham drove down to the Ristau place Sunday morning and took possession of tho stolen property and brought Otto to Algona and placed him in jnil Where he -remained until Tuesday, when tho sheriff from Pipestone came and got him. There is a state law in Minnesota giving $200 to the tmrson instrumental in apprehending a horse thief. As Marshal Daly furnished the first information no doubt he will come in for a slice of the reward and also Sheriff Samson. The liveryman turned over the team harness and buggy to Mr. Daly for services rendered him in locating the man. The entire outfit isn't worth over $30 or $40, however. The young culprit consented to go with the sheriff without his going to the troubleof getting out extradition papers. It is said that he has been a wayward and good-for- nothing young man, and has. time and again caused his parents annoyance and expense. A term in the penitentiary will undoubtedly take him down a notch or two and do him. good.

Fine Crockery AT THE NEW STORE, Ex-congressman Walter H. Butler has mysteriously disappeared from his home in Olewein, and no trace of him can be found. He left on the train and the supposition is that he has met with foul play. A farmer at Champaign, 111. has recently lost one hundred hogs fro^m a'dlsease.yvhicb, while at first supposed to'be cholera, is now declared to be an ailment-caused by wheat-feeding. At fifty cents wheat was cheaper than corn, and to fatten the hogs for the market the farmer fed it abundantly. The superstitous aqd imaginative will perceive in the loss, of the farmer a providential warning against throwing, to swine food for the want of which millions of the liuman family are famishing, But this is sentiment.

Otto Ristau Wanted at Pipe Stoue for Horse Stealing. W. M, Kirkham a livery man at Pipe Stone, Minn., arrived in Algona about three o'clock Sunday morning in quest of Otto Ristau, a young man about 18 years of age, that engaged a livery team at his barn about six weeks ago, as he said, to go LuVerne, Minn. He had no trouble in locating his man here, and he and Sheriff Samson drove to LuVerne Sunday and found Mr. Eistau at his father's with the team still in his possession, As the story goes, young Eistau and a brother of his left home some time in September and went up into Minnesota, They drifted about from place to place, and finally found themselves at Pipe Stone, presumably out of cash, Otto went to the Kirkham Jivery and engaged a team telling the liveryman that he wanted to make a the "Council.
