After ft lapso of two years, during which time do one certainly knew whether the district association was dead or niorcly sleeping, on call of tin prcidont a meeting was hold at Mason City on Thursday nnU Friday of last week, at which about twenty-lira editor! of the district responded. This number is only a littlo over ono-third of the editors of the district, but under tlte circumstances it was a very fair turn-out. The weather was b»d mid the roads wero worst). If a man got away from home last week and there wns any stream intervening there was no certainty whon he would (j«t back. And then thore are so many papers published on Thursday it is almost impossible for such editors to pet away from homo. Wo think the executive somiuittco should change Die days of the week to Monday and Tuesday- This would strike tho publication day of fewer papers than any other two cousoentivs days of tho week. Hut to the credit of all thoso to whom tho pio- paration of papers wero assigned, thoy woro all present nnd responded with an able discussion of the subjects given to them. As the proceedings will bo published in soma form later on we will not giro any detail here. On account of the Hood at Kuokuk, suspending trains, 8. If. Clark, who had promised to be present and address tho association on Thursday ovening, could not get through, and heuco that interesting fcaturo had to be dispensed with, ana with it the public reception which the local press hud arranged for on a large scale. And right here let us say that the local press and the citizens of Mason City covered thcmselvos with glory as it was by tho munificent entertainment extended, to say nothing of what they had arranged to do had tho wenthvi- proved propitioii».^£{r 0 j* hays a city o^^fhTrTth^y may woll J*ii-^Kua , and thoy desired the editors .should too it, but Che woather and mud preventod, except as to the electric lights, which spoke for themselves, as well as tho lino hotels, opera house and stores that line the principal stre«.t along which wo had to pass. The Mason City of to-day has littlo reseni- blanco to tho Maseu City wo used frequently to visit twenty years ago. Then it wns ft small country village, now it is a city of 5,000 inhabitants, and just as pushing and ontorprising as any other city in tho rapidly growing west. Wo only regret our inability to soe The next mooting of the association will be hold at Dccnrnh next November. Dn. GKO. J. MAQOUN , tho venerable ex-president of Cornell college, attompts to down Sam. M. Clark, of the Keokuk Gate City, on familiarity with the history of the republican party of Iowa, ospeeiaMy on prohibition. That thing oan't be done by any man in the state. Dt. Magoun may be, and doubtless is, authority on any subjects coming undw the supervision of the schools, but oil the politics of this state covering tlie past thirty year*, there is JIO higher authority than S. M. Clark. He has attended nearly every republican state convention siuco 1864, and ha* always been ono of the most prominent factor* in tho party up to the timo when prohibition orowdod out republicanism. He is the author of more republican stalo platforms than any other man and we bolievo more than all other men combined. Tho last state platform promulgated at the lalo state convention, is tho work of his hands, aud this acnomiU for there being no prohibition in it. This is not ft prohibition year. Ou* Wend of tho Now Hampton Tribune reviews our artlole of three weeks •go on the tariff, but makes no points that we oare to reply to. His attempt to mako it appear that wo contradict onrself is straining at a gnat. Our argument 1* not that every article upon which there is a tariff is going to be •old just as cheap in oyery instance a* it is sold in England, though in many oases this soenilng anomaly is true. What w* do maintain i» that under a protective tariff goods can b* and are sold Just as ohoap with a* without a tariff. If they wore sold just as cheap here as in England It would Imply that labor as wall as iutorest is just a* oheap here a* there, which all know i* not true, Is it true that our demooratio friends desire to put labor aad capital here on a par with KnglandP It would •eera so from the tono of our friend 's article. W* do not think such a discussion Is necessary at this time, for no laboring man want* to compete with the pauper labor of Ituvope on even, terms. IT seem* to us as if those republican* who are opposing the renomlnatlon of President Harrison and those democrats who are. opposing Cleveland are liable to be "in the soup" after the conventions, as nothing seem* m»re probable than that both will be nominated. The State Register notably ataong the republican journals, will be at a disadvantage, a* ite opposition to the president ha* been »o marked as to approaob viudiotivenes*. Should the ptesldent be renominated Mr, Ciarkion should be doposod frora tbe head of the ouramUtee, v ,-xtf»»> Minneapolis eooveation will ; " ^>«w# BOvUM beginning of the con'»<.,• ^that'ts; & ^nUnnto tk« nest A. 0. TJ. W. OF IOWA. At the grand lodge of the Iowa brauih of the A. O. U. W. held at Waterloo last week thu most important business was changing the constitution to adopt graded assessments on what is termed the sliding scale. This association, like all the assessment companies, undertakes to furnish life insuranee at actual cost. It has been determined by about twenty years experience, that tbis order has been furnishing insurance to its older members at much less than cost, and in fact to all its members over thirty-flvo years of age; and for the past six years tho investigation has been going on with the view of arriving at a just system ef graded assessments' liy careful study and research on the part of the committee and the grand lodge it is believed that tiiis dessideratum has been attained. Experience aionu must demonstrate till*. One thing Is eertain. It is uot just, and it is patent on tho face of it, that no such organization can be permanent that charges tho same to members at twmily-one as at fifty. Under such circumstances the young men will lapse and the old men will stick, and in the end the organization will all be oomposed of old mon and the rate will beooino too high to be borno. Tho following aro the changes made: ARTK.'l.B x. ••SIM:. 1. All mom bora of this order shall be divided into two classes for convenience in keeping the records, as follows: Members holding certificates for 92,000 beneficinry shall belong to class 'A.' Thoso holding certificates for SI,000 beneficiary shall belong to class 'II.' Tli') maximum amount of beneficiary eertiticate which tho order may issue to any one individual, shall be 42,000, aud a certificate for $1,000 or $2,000 may bo issued at tho option of the applicant for membership. Any momborof the order may, at his option, surrender his ccrtilioato in ono class und take in lion thereof one of the othor cliiss, PUOVIDED , that no mombar over fifty years of age shall be entitled to no increased certificate, nor shall any member be entitled to nn increased carliiicate till ho shall have passod tho usual medical examination. SEC. 2. Members shall be graded according to age. as follows: Grade No. 1 shall consist of members of the age of twenty-one years to twenty-eight years, inclusive, Grade N». 2 of members of the ago of twenty-aiae years to thirty-five years, inclusive;. Gcad«-Nt)v"| 3 of members ptUitj -Rgo' 0 f thirty-six yqarjj-tO-fSrly years, inclusive; Grade No. 4 of members of the age of foi ly- one years to forty-five years, inclusive; Grade No. b of membors of the ago of forty-six years to forty-aiue years, inclusive; Grade No. 6 of membors of the age of lifty years and upwards. Ou each assessment ordered for the payment of death benefits each member shall be required to pay according to the grade in which lie belongs, as follows, to-wit: Grade No. 1 in class A in class B Grade No. 3 in class A in class It Grade No. !) in class A in class B Grade No. 4 in class A in class B Grade No. 6 in class A in class B Grade No. 6 in class A Frovulud'tlmt each member shall' fie advaucod to the next higher grade on the first of January or July after his reaching the minimum age thereof. B. F. W RIGHT says that If the republicans want to carry Iowa this year they must put prohibition into the state platform and denounce the Hatch bill. In tho same issue ho lauds John F. St. John and scores Clarkson for "abusing" him. From a political standpoint no republican could abuse St. John or Wright. The parly never had any worse enomic* to the extent of their ability. Hut their influence will not bo felt this year. Side issues will be relegated to the rear this year. IT is pleasant to note that Kx-Gov. Gear, who went down in tbo congressional wreck two years ago, is to be renominated for congress in the first district by tho republicans by acclamation, and it is still pleasauter te be assured that hn will bo re-elected. He was beaten two years ago by a little over 1.000 votes, and this majority will be easily overcome this presidential year. Gov. Gear was a pewer in congress, and as the next body will bo a republican one it is meet that he should have his old position. Oar ndversi majority was nearly twice as great two years ago in the fourth district and we confidently expect the district will be redeemed this year. Hepnblican victory is in tho air all along the line. A DEMOCHATIO DEFICIENCY INSTEAD. $0 80 0 40 0 90 0 4b 1 00 0 60 1 16 0 GO 1 35 0 70 1 (SO OKE thing we may already be certain of in connection with tba coming campaign. It will be ualiko the ono twr years ago in that the tin onp will have no prominence. It will bo unlike that of a year ago in that nothing will be said .about the "billion dollar con- gross." The present congress is so far outstripping the former one In uxtravagunco that the democrats aro perfectly willing to "let bygones be bygones," and to admit that it is not possible to run the government on a five cent basis. Tho McKinley bill is a doad issue and silver is a two-edged sword and it begins to look as If our friends, the enemy, would hare to offer a promium for a fighting issue. It would be too bad to have a presidential campaign with no Issues involved. IT is a noteworthy faot that Lord Salisbury, prime minister of England, has come out stiougly for protection and reciprocity, and say* that England cannot hope for future permanent success on any other line, with all the countries of the world uniting In that direction. Lord Salisbury baa always heretofore been a solid free trader, but he i* now confronted with faot* that are insurmountable and he is forced to fall Into lino. It will be a new but not a strange sight to see (he great and only home of practical free trade falling in lino with McKinley and Blaine. Whon the money of the Cobden club is withdrawn from the United Slate* our dem­ ooratio friends will have to "whaok up" for campaign expenses. AUD itill the talk ot Blaine doos not subside in the paper* and the hope i* yet strong in some quarter* tha,t the oouvention will be stampeded for him aud that be will still be nominated. We don't believe this would be goad politic* and although Blaino has been our oandidate for twenty years and we would rather soe him president than any living man, still we bolieve that Harrison is entitled to a second term on the same prlnolple that any man who has done splendidly on* term 1* conceded to be entitled to another. And still a stampede to Blaine is not Impossible unless be puts a Unal and unequirooal slop to It. Wo believe he should now do it. THK good people of Iowa now have an opportunity for aim* nearer home than Russia. The flood lufiever* of Sioux City are calling for help and their ory *h*uld not be In vain. At first the authorities of Sioux City thought they could handle the necea iary relief alone, but It was too, heavy an undertaking and (hey have hud to reooosldei' their determination to »taud alone and »«k for Jielp. 1'he help •houM How in a* copiously <t« the rains descended upon tljeru. and it certainly wjlj. J QW * will i»pt long •.Itaw iBfftrlofy h^rtboraen itm Mlob »v regulate expenditures receipts.' They' li«ive."a ISiatt Re Bister.) For more than a year, or ever since the republican party reduced the price of sugar, tb* democrats havo been say ing that theru would be a deficiency a>. the end of the fiscal year, in other words a bankrupted national treasnrj. The liscal year ends Juno 30, only a little more than a month from now. There is no delicioney in sight, and Senator Allison has demonstrsled with facts and figures that there will uot bo any, but on the contrary a surplus of at least $a*,000,OQ0. Nor will the present congress be called upon to pass any deficiency appropriation bills, as nearly overy republican congress that has followed a democratic congress has been compelled to do. But what of the ucxt fiscal year, the year that begins with the SOili of June next mid ends with the SOth of Juno, 1893? Tho democratic house is making tho expenditures for that year, Already thoy havo passed so many reckless appropiiation bills, $50,000,000 for rivars and harbors alono, that a deficicney is now considered unavoidable, 'lboy have taken no pains to according to as one commentator liks said, '-their eyes on tho star-eyed goddess of tcform, aud their lists in tbo tressary of tho Unliod States." And so it will come about that the bank rnpted treasury which th;j have pro dieted as tho result of republican rule, will oiiuio instead as a losult of demo­ oratio rule. What excellent fellows the democrats aro when it comes to help ing the republican party! THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. [Inter Ocean.) The house of representatives passed the river and harbor bill by a more thau two-third* majority, and yesterday the senate left that record hope lessly in the lurch, for it passed the same bill without a single dissenting voice. To bo more accurate the bill is tho same in name but with many ete n «rafu. ,J w«i mm •/fflUajHiMif the motion of Senator MePherson to cut tho appropriation down ono-balf was voted dowu -12 t,o 6. The bill as changed makes sovcral Itoreases and decreases. The lirst increase was for the benefit of our neighboring harbor across th_ lake, Grand Havon, raised from 840,000 to $90,000. The other end of lake navigation, Buffalo, suffered a heavy cut, from $600,000 to $225,000. Still another lake appropriation, ono for Petos- koy. Mich., of $3*,000 was stricken out altogether, making a reduction in lako harbor* of $400,000. There were six increases in lake harbors, aggregating $145,009. making a net reduction of $276,000 in our chain of lakes. The other changes wore an increase of $331,833 and a decrease of $991,750, a difference in favor of decreases of $659, 917, or summing up tho grand net result is a deoroaso of $914,917. The bill now goes to a eouforence coraralttoe. The house will probably insist upon some changes, but the differences are not so radical as to be serious. The attempt to make political capital out of the "Billion Dollar Congress" in favor of the democracy may now bo set down as a thing of the past. The reductions made in this great appropriation oanio from the republican senate, albeit the senate usually increases, rather than doorcases, appropriations. CREMATED AT GTJTTENBBRG. ring 3:30 i the Tho Dubuque Telegraph of Monday give* the following account of a l*nl ble tragedy enacted at Guttenborg last Saturday aftornoon.

It is presumed they made a tire on the first floor to dry their olothes and then ascended to tho hay lolt and startod a lire there. At least Mrs. Luther saw flame* and smoke arislug from the barn and rushed out to save the horses, A* she reached the barn a man entered at the other end and escaped with the horses. She then heard orloa from the hay loft and rec­ ognising the voices of the children, she hurriedly asoendiid to the loft. She could not sea the uhlldren through the dense suioko, but following the direction of the sound she managed to reaoh them.

You know A FOREST MONARCH. Three Growths Have ArUen Aronnrt This Monster. T .OSR- before the advent of the white man In California forest Hres vajrod,and from recent discoveries It is probable that giant trees were thus destroyed,In comparison to which our much-lauded sequoias and redwoods of the present are but saplings. In 1840 Commodore Apctsby Catosby Jones, U. S. N., established a small sawmill in Mill Valley for the purpose of getting' out lumber, there being no saw-mills in operation on the coast at the time. A few remnants of this old mill Htill rcmnln, says an exolv.mKc, the locality being about six miles from Sunsalito, on the North Pacific Coast railway. Close by tbis mill there can to-day be plainly traced the outlines of a tree destroyed by lire perhaps ages ago. Tho stump still measures fifty-two feet in diameter, mid from appearances perhaps measured fully sixty feet. Around this mammoth stump had grown Immense trees, wliicb were cut and used in the saw-mill in 1849. Sinco then ti third growth lins been made, the sight of which would maltc g-lud the heart of any lumberman. The stump wu.s mensured by Edward A. T. Gallagher, the pioneer, who lost his reputation for veracity in 1810, when his description of the sequoias of California was published in the Eastern papers, in which the statement wns made that his employes bad driven a wagon and a yoke of oxen through n prostrate tree that lmd burned hollow, and they would drive 100 feet and "gee off" and out through a knot-hole. At the time the statement was made that he hud felled a tree sev-ntecn feet in diameter, and had used tbe hollow of one that wns standing in which to stable thirteen head of horses ADDITIONAL LOCAL.

Tony and his bride will not return. The news comes that four days after Tony arrived in Italy he laid siege to the heart of a black-eyed peasant girl whom he had never seen before. Would she marry him and come tc America, where dollars are as plentiful as seudi in tho fatherland, and every man is as good as bis neighbor? She would but for the fact Unit she had t lover to whom sbo was affianced. Tony said that was nothing and hunted up the lover. "You can't have her," said tho lat tor. "I have loved her a whole year, and she is to be my wife." "I must have her," said Tony. '•We'll tight for her. That's the way we do in America. I have a pistol." "Hut I have none," said the lover "Good," said Tony, "I'll get one foi you." Tony obtained a second pistol and the two fought.

A very ingenious automatic machine has been established near tho letterbox at Charles Cross Station for the collection of letters to be forwarded by the postoillco express service. It if in electrical oonnection with tho postal telegraph office opposite the station. By dropping a penny into the slot and pulling out tho slide a brown-colored envelope is delivered. This envelope contains another envelope and a card, Tho communication is intended to be written on the oard, which is then inclosed in tho white ^envelope, and this, with lho fees for delivery, which has been fixed lit throe ponce pel mile, is reinclosed in tho outer envelope and deposited in tho box behind tho ilap, which boars the printed Instructions.

What connection, it may he asked and has been asked, was the year or added day supposed to havo with a leap or with leaping? Were these years regarded as coming . with leaps or bounds, as contrasted with the steps and paces of other years? Did days or years leap over something, or were they themselves somehow leaped over?
