Hanna had been in Des MoineS and in conversation with the Register tnan tells about the Venezuelan trouble. The Register publishes this and some items of local interest about Mr. Hanna'a doings: Des Moines is entertaining a distinguished visitor. The visitor is in the person of Mr. P. C. Hanna, formerly United States consul at Venezuela. Mr. Hanna Is the gentleman who while in office there in conjunction with Admiral Walker materially aided General Crespo in establishing his government. Mr. Hanna said yesterday to a reporter for The Register that in his opinion Great Britain will yet be compelled to .accept the services of the United States as arbitrator in the difficulties with Venezuela and possibly other South American states. If it does not he believes that the entire northwestern portion of South America will combine in a war against England on their own soil with the hope'that the United States will assist them. At any rate their hopo would be centered In the United States and even if this country would declare a protectorate over Venezuela it would make their cause the caUse of America so far as moral strength is concerned. Mr. Hanna says that there is no spot in the world where Americans are so welcome as in northern South America. They are highly esteemed and dearly loved by the people and thoroughly respected by the government. At any rate it may be added to what Mr. Hanna said that such was the case prior to the democratic administration. Mr. Hanna lives in Chicago. He will return to that city today. He is the president of the Red Chief Mining company of Baker City, Ore., which has mines all over the world, among them one in Australia. Mr. Hanna has extensive concessions In Venezuela, a portion of the territory covered by which is now in dispute. His company held its annual meeting In Des Moines yesterday and completed the purchase of a mill, engaged a manager and a corps of assistants and will dispatch the directors of the new enterprise to Venezuela.

The Des Moines Capital says that Dolllver's building may not mean matrimony, as is suggested, "for the reason that his sister, his father and his brother comprise his household. He has been keeping house in a little place built of cottonwood lumber, and the whole establishment could be duplicated for $500. He is probably tired of It and wants something a little better. If he really tak«s a wife, may joy be his, but he ouprht not to marry until he gets done with congress." The Boyle Boom On. Whittemore Champion: Why so much of this haggling among papers of Iowa about Kamrar, McParland, Ormsby and others for governor? If they have held offices enough, or are unfit for the office in any way, make another choice. What is the matter with Boyle? He is still on the turf, and would make a rattling good governor, too. _____ Horses Coming Up. An English horse buyer paid some astonishingly high prices for horses in Emmetsburg, Saturday. Joe Stell'a team sold for $250 and Thomas Jennings' for $200. Correspondingly high prices were paid for others. He purchased 40 horses within two hours. Col, Tom Harrison In Topeka, Col. Harrison declined a renomina- tion as mayor of Topeka, Kan, Besides his law business he is farming 1,600 acres of land. The Reporter says; He is planting this spring 8,000 evergreens, 2,500 grape vines and 1,000 peach, plum, pear and cherry trees and seven acres of small fruits. TUe I^aet Paper Railroad. The Alden railroad company is getting along nearly to where Fred, Hawes had our Belmond extension. They are about to spend some money for a survey from Amen via Big Wall Lake, Clarion, and Brltt to the polar regions. We hope they do pot Jose the profiles as Algona has hers, consumption caught from B Cow, Prof, Stalker has just pondemned a lot of tuberculous o§ttle over near Qdebplt. The Carroll Herald Jn cpm* menting says: 'We know of a case of aqute human, tuberculosis, 'pot mapy miles distant, that it is said originated in the milk 9f a tuberouloue CQW, Ati inexpressible shock comes to this community in the announcement of the death of Miss Anna C. Inghatn, oldest daughter of Wm. H. Ingham, which occurred on Monday in Chicago. The Register this morning gives what is probably the nearest to a correct report of the sad affair: Miss Ingham has been for several years a teacher in the girls' collegiate school, a fashionable youug ladies' boarding school, at 48 Dearborn avenue, on the North side, near Lake Michigan. Last Saturday her father and mother' and a younger sister, Miss Coruie Ingham, returned from an extended visit in Florida and stopped in Chicago. They wrote to Miss Anna and re= quested her to meet thorn at the Sherman house Sunday morning. She replied, saying she would be down In time to go to church with them. They waited till afternoon, and as she did not come they went up to the school and learned from Miss Rice, the principal, that Miss Ingham had left there at 9 o'clock in the morning. Messengers wore sent in every direction wherever she had friends, and to hospitals, hoping to hear that she had either gone to some friend's house or had fallen down in the street and been taken to a hospital. But nothing was heard from her untu Monday, when a letter was received, written by Miss Ingham and postmarked at Highland Park, a suburb on the lake north of Evanston, that morning. In it she said that she could not bear to live any longer, and could not endure the melancholy of the past two years. She spoke affectionately of her father'and mother and sister, and the little nieces, and of other friends. Then it became certain that she had given herself to Lake Michigan. She had looked upon the great lake In peace and storm daily for several years, and in her overwrought condition had gone to its cold embrace for her relief. No cause can be assigned beyond overwork and a naturally sensitive nature which had suffered keenly from mental ills. Her health had been poor for some time, and she was very frail. She was the most beloved person in the school, and the name given to her by the other young ladies—Saint Anne—shows what her character was. Mr. Harvey Ingham, her brother, left Algona last night for Chicago, not knowing the whole truth. A telegram from Chicago this morning says the remains will reach Algona tomorrow at 4:30 over the Milwaukee road. , CENSUS Only Nine Outside Precincts Heard From as Yet Officially.
