The hase will be 14x14 feet. Above this will be two massive sections, then the die upon which will appear the inscriptions, on one side the names of those killed in the massacre, on another the names of the relief party, on another a brief historical statement and on the other words denoting that the monument was erected by order of the Twenty-fifth general assembly. The shaft at its base will measure 5x5 feet. Each alternate section of about two feet will be polished, the Intervening one to be left natural. The top will take the form of an Indian arrow head. From base to point th'e monument will be of eastern granite. The contract figure is $4,600, including an iron fence about the monument. The monument is to be located a short distance south of the Gardner cabin where a lot 100x180 feet has been donated by the Okobojl South Beach company, of which Col. Gatch of Des _ Moines is president. The Spirit Lake "Beacon pronounces the location faultless, and the gift is certainly a most generous one. As the appropriation was limited to $5,000 the donation of the site enabled the committee to put that much money into the monument. Considerable work on the monument will be done this season, but it will not be completed until next spring. lown's New Political Party. Boone Republican: The industrials, a new party of Polk county, held a convention at Des Moines last week. The commissary collector for Kelly's army while at Des Moines, Mr. A. P. Lowry, was made chairman, in recognition doubtless of the services rendered to the former industrials. An effort was made to adjourn the convention to the time of the meeting of the populists, but the motion was lost. A full county ticket was afterwards nominated, being composed mostly of democrats, the whole movement being probably intended for a democratic aid society. The resolutions were mainly in favor of the present strikers and in denunciation of railroads. The party is a sort of a political excresence and will need no farther attention except that of an undertaker after election. "Tante Kee" 1« Trouble. George W. Bailey, or "Tank Kee," as he is more familiarly known, who about a year ago placed his , famous Chinese collection in the Masonic library Cedar Rapids, was brought from Council Bluffs Friday by Deputy United States Marshal Healy, and upon waiving examination was held to the federal grand jury in the sum of $500. He is charged with violation of the United States mail laws in having written a postal card to the secretary of the Masonic grand lodge that is calculated to expose him to public disgrace and contempt. He charged Parvin on the card with having threatened to kill him, and asked if he could come to the Masonic library to inspect his collection. On the card he also charged T. T. Parvin with trying to cheat him out of a collection of books and jewels. Des Moines' Gamblers. The Capital says: The police have been making it a little sultry for the gambling houses of the city during the past few days. Four gambling rooms were raided Wednesday and $240 collected from the proprietors and inmates. There are not less than a dozen of these places in full operation in the city, six of which are on West Walnut between Third and Sixth, two on Court avenue, one of which adjoins the Register local rooms. The others are scattered, one of them being in a hotel and another on West Fourth between Court avenue and Walnut, The lights bum all night in full view of all who pass and the doors are wide open for the admissison of any one who may desire to enter. In fact, gambling has not been so openly notorious in the city for ten years, Juage Carr on Citizenship. The Beacon says of Judge Carr's address at Spirit Lake on July 4; Along these lines h,e gave expression to sentiments healthful and helpful. His ideals in manhood and citizenship are worthy of the most thoughtful consideration at this tine. Judge Carr has given to these important questions patient investigation and the deliberate reflection of a strong, practical, unbiassed and patriotic mind, The Beacon thoroughly approves of his expressions along these lines and was more than pleased to observe that hie courageous and timely opinions were so fylly approved on the part of ovjr people, INO speech ever delivered PB a like occasion in this, county haa re* peived more positive endorsement a| the hands of farmers, business men and oitlgene generally, , A rewarkftble reUgta«9 revival is c olu,njb,u£ power, and large numbers are being drawn Into the church. But hot alone as a spiritual healer la this lady supposed to have phenomenal powers. She is also a healer of physical ail* tnents; and many things are told of her powers in this direction, Her meetings, which are held in an im* mense tent, are crowded, while people are coming from miles away to be cured of their maladies. As usual, there is a great diversity of opinion as to the reality of the cures; but that is a question which may be safely left to those who test the lady's skill, or whatever quality her healing capacity consists In. Newspaper Change. Dubuque special, Hi The Dubuque Daily Times and its evening edition, the Journal, changed hands today. The purchaser is Geo. C. Perry, chairman of the district and county republican committees. The price paid was $21,000. The Times will be consolidated with the Globe, an evening paper. The latter will issue as the evening Globe-Journal and the Times issued in the morning. Judge Utt, who bought the Times five years ago, has made it a prosperous and influential paper. The transfer takes effect August 1. •_ Renounced Democracy, Eugene Bryan, one of the leading attorneys of Wright county, has renounced the democratic party, in which he has heretofore been active, and he has been elected a delegate to the republican judicial convention for that district. Mr. Bryan's father was P. Gad Bryan, for many years one of the most influential democrats in Des Moines. Two Terms Enough. In 1800 the Story county convention voted that no county officer should hold a county office for more than two consecutive terms and this year the convention re-adopted the same resolution. That will probably settle for considerable time to come the five consecutive term business that Story was saddled with for 20 years previous. Made a Slight Error. Des Moines Register: The Register's telephone bell rang yesterday and the fatal woi'ds "Do you want any beer there?" staggered the listener. The fellow at the, other end rang off in a tantrum, after saying he thought he had drug store. STATEMENT OF KOSSUTH COUNTY STATE BANK at close of business, Juno 30, 1804, made to auditor of state.
