The Week's Round-up of Matters Over the State, Political, Peculiar, and Otherwise. Waterloo special, 19: George Elliot of Marengo, Iowa, came to Waterloo this morning and partially identified a little boy < which was deserted here July 6 as his son, Ray Elliot, who was stolen from Marengo, May 22, 1893. He was accompanied by N. B. Phelps, a clergyman of Marengo, and both of them were satisfied that the boy was the one that was stolen. They left for Marengo with the child this morning whore they said that Mrs. Elliot could tell positively whether it was the right boy or not. Kay 'Elliot was five yours old when ho was stolen last year, and his disappearance caused considerable excitement at the time. The father Was a hard-working man and has used up nearly all his property in his search for the boy. It was believed that the little one was taken by a band of Gypsies, and though since that time twenty different children have been found in various parts of ipwa and Illinois, yet upon investigation it was found that none of them bore the correct description until this little boy was discovered here. July 6 a woman poorly dressed came to Waterloo with the boy and left him with a family named Hepler, stating that she would come back in a week, and if the family wanted to adopt the boy they could. Mrs. Hepler had lived near Marongjo .and she at once suspected that the boy was Ray Elliot, although the name given for him was Roy Burke. The matter was reported to the police, and when the woman who brought him here failed to appear when the week was up, a photograph of the boy was sent to Mr. Elliot and he came- to Waterloo. The boy is about five years old and bears an accurate description of the lost boy. He says he can remember being taken in a covered wagon by some people who had a lot of horses. This corresponds with the Gypsy outfit. He also says that he can remember being in Marion, Ohio, and in Canada. There is no slew to the woman who brought him here. She claimed to live at Independence, Iowa, but her whereabouts lias not been discovered. Saloon Men In Trouble. A special from Sioux City tells how the saloon business is working in Woodbury county: There is a prospect for trouble ahead for some of the saloon men who are operating in the country towns of this county. Parties at Sloan are making an effort to close up the saloons, and claim that the petition of consent under which they jlaim exemption from the prohibitory law is not good. They have investigated the matter and find that in Sloan township alone thirty of the names signed to the petitions are either forged or of ineligible persons. The man who circulated the petition there was shown the petition and says that twenty-two of the names have been placed there since it left his hands. There is strong suspicion that the whole petition in the connty was thus doctored after it came into the hands of the petition managers here and there is talk not only of prosecuting the saloon keepers but of bringing charges of forgery against the petition circulators.. Throwing Mud at J. illen. Wright County Monitor: The editor of the Floyd County Advocate, B. F. Wright, a would-be political dictator of Iowa, is engaged in throwing mud at J. Ellen Foster because she don't favor carrying prohibition into politics to the extent he desires. He says she receives not less than $10,000 per year from the liquor interests for political work done. No one knows better than Wright that such a statement is unqualifiedly false, and is only made for the purpose of, so far as possible, weakening her influence. The attacks of a professed prohibition leader, who stands convicted of taking pay from a Chicago wholesale liquor house for printing orders, circular letters and other blanks for extending their business, will not injure the reputation of so good a woman as Mrs. Foster in public estimation, DolJIver'B 0,OOO Majority. Hon. J. Fred. Meyers was chairman of the congressional convention at Webster City, and he writes concerning it: It has rarely been our privi-; lege to preside over a body of men who were so cheerful, harmonious and confident of success as the delegates assembled at Webster City. The convention was animated by one purpose only—the nomination of Hon. J. P. Dolliver by acclamation, Every county was represented, and the vote by which Mr. Dolliver was nominated was unanimous, every delegate rising, to his feet. There is as far as we now know only a scattered opposition. The democrats and populists will not combine— because there is no hope any- way—aod thus Mr- Dplliyer's plurality will be upwards pfS.QOO, Pay the Costs, One of the, jrjoet injpprteiflti enactments of the last legislature was the law wpowertpg tbe oQurta to, ta.* 008t@ mere purpose of spite or blackmail, and the prosecuting witness having accomplished his object by thus filing dropped out and the county was left to pay all the costs. Justices will hereafter look into the financial standing of any one filing an information, and if his case is at all shaky it is not likely the cotoplaint will be admitted, If it is the justice and court officers will bo minus their fees in many cases. Queer Case of Insanity. For eighteen years Martin Craw has laid in the Dubuque county jail awaiting an examination by the insane commissioners on the ,charge of insanity. To every grand jury visiting the jail during this time he has pleaded for release fii vain. The commissioners finally decided to investigate his case, with the idea of releasing him. On examination he was found to be sane, except on one point. He insisted that his father was not dead, and that he has no brothers or sister. The fact that his father has been dead for many years, and that he has several brothers and sisters living, induced the commissioners to declare him insane and his removal to the Independence insane asylum has been ordered. Only One on KccorU. Boone Republican: Milan Luther has a specimen, which is probably the only one on record on earth. It is a setting turkey gobbler, which has been on the nest a week or more and cannot be routed by all the latest improved methods by which a setting hen is induced to quit business. He "clucks" in a very motherly fashion, and to all appearances, unless his neck is wrung, he will bring out a healthy brood in the appointed time. Meanwhile the hen assumes the masculine duties and watches and provides the substance for the family. The sign of the times is unmistakable, and there is no use trying to stave off the women's rights regime any longer. They Don't Mix. That poetry and soldiery don't amalgamate very well is shown by the following from the Charles City Intelligencer: Company "A" of Mason City were called to Sioux City on account of the strike, and from that place a story in rhyme was sent to the Republican of Mason City composed by some of the company. The lines were as raw as the amateurs who penned them. That they were very sick was evident by their wail for home and mother, whine about poor "grub," and kick against sleeping quarters. It is anything but soldierly to write milk and water, wishy-washy poetry anyhow. Soldiers at the State Fair. The executive committee of the state fair has decided to admit the old soldiers on about the same plan as heretofore, says the Register. The board last winter passed a resolution that they should be admitted only on their discharge papers, but this was strongly objected to by the' soldiers, who do not want to carry these precious documents around with them. So the committee has decided to admit them on the requisition of their post commanders, requiring each ticket to be signed on the back by the holder in the presence of the post commander. Old soldier days will be Wednesday and Thursday, September 5 and 6. For the State Pair. ( The Iowa state fair authorities are active in making preparations for the coming fair, which will be held at Des Molnes, Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. More amusement will be provided for than before; the wonderful horse show of J. W. Skelley & Son of Bridgeport, Conn., has been engaged. The entries in the fine art department have been restricted to Iowa people; foreign exhibits are barred out entirely. This will give Iowa women a most excellent chance to receive premiums on their Work. The great Iowa state fair, in which every citizen of Iowa takes pride, will make a greater success than ever this fall, Probably Tramps, The Intelligencer says that Charles City narrowly escaped being flooded by a band of about 50 Coxeyites last Thursday, They arrived in town from Montana on a freight train and were going to stop here for a time. The sheriff was notified by telephone of their intentions, but before he could reach the depot both train and tramps had disappeared. The band were warned of the sheriff's coming and slid back to their box cars. They were a well-behaved lot, so say the Mason City papers. ALL FREE.
